Waiting on Wednesday (3)

Waiting on Wednesday (3)

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. Goddess Interrupted  by Aimee Carter This is where I would normally put the summary from Goodreads.com and a pretty picture of the cover, but this information is not yet released for this book. But I still had to pick this because I want to read it. SO. BAD!! I cannot wait! I am still thinking about the first book, The Goddess Test, it was that good. Read my review of The Goddess Test HERE. I loved the first book so much. I wish I was at BEA just to get this book! Seriously, If I went and walked out with one book, I would want it to be this one!  -Michelle

Review- House Trap

Review- House Trap

House Trap by Mike Mauthor Kindle Edition, 120 pages Published May 7th 2011  Source: Author Buy: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/58250   Summary (from Goodreads) Rachel Evans is a sixteen year old overachiever who would take nothing less than to achieve her goal of getting into Dartmouth College. But Rachel’s life would never be the same once she stepped into the house of Alicia Hausefalle, the most popular girl in Wedds High School. Rachel was there to tutor her. She never expected to meet two strangers who were ready to end her life.     ——————————————————————– My Review: This book was a great thriller. I really liked the concept of it and it certainly was pretty scary. It is a short read but it it was jam packed with action and suspense. It definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat for pretty much the whole story. It starts out with a past murder, and then shifts into present day- where all the action begins. What I liked most about this story was… Read more »

Review- Fade

Review- Fade

Fade by Robert Cormier Paperback, 320 pages Published September 14th 2004 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers Source: Borrowed Summary (from Goodreads) IT IS THE summer of 1938 when young Paul Moreaux discovers he can “fade.” First bewildered, then thrilled with the power of invisibility, Paul experiments. But his “gift” soon shows him shocking secrets and drives him toward a chilling act. ———————————————————————– My Review:  I have to say this first…some parts of this book were very weird. But, after reading the whole thing, I think it was weird in a very good way. I loved this book. I had read another one of Robert Cormier’s books in middle school, I am the Cheese, and I remember thinking that book was strange too. I also remember enjoying it. It is a very interesting mix of crazy and innovative, and strange and brilliant. They way everything comes together is just so nice! The main character, Paul, does remind me a lot of Holden Caulfield from the Catcher in the Rye. And… Read more »

In My Mailbox (6)

In My Mailbox was inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie and created by Kristi at The Story Siren.    I am studying abroad in July and August, so in order to save some money I have put myself on a book buying ban.

Books have always been my weakness.  For Review:   Cameo and the Highwayman by Dawn McCullough-White   Caressed by Moonlight by Amanda J. Greene   Won:   The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski   RAK:    Nightshade by Andrea Cremer  Thank you so much to Cassay @ Vamps, Weres and Cassay for sending me this book!
