{Review +Giveaway} The Looking Glass by Jessica Arnold

{Review +Giveaway} The Looking Glass by Jessica Arnold

The Looking Glass is a really interesting take on a re-telling. The girls name is Alice, and she ends up on the other side of a mirror, but that is about where the similarities stop. Jessica Arnold has created a completely new, creepy, intriguing and utterly fascinating world in her spooky hotel. I loved watching Alice explore it, both through the diary she finds and through running from room to room. I felt Alice’s pressure the whole book, just hanging there in the air. I felt like I had to keep reading because if I didn’t then Alice would run out of time to figure out whatever she needed to figure out to get out of that house and back to the real hotel. I loved that she was transported to basically an alternate mirror world of the hotel where she was vacationing with her family. I will admit that I was kind of confused when I started reading the book, but this is the kind of book where you… Read more »

{Review} The Girl by Lola St. Vil

The Girl by Lola St. Vil Published: September 30, 2012 Age Group: YA Series: The Guardians #1 Source: Purchased from Kindle Summary: The prophecy says I will fall in love with team leader and Angel, Marcus Cane. The prophecy also says that our love will cause his mission to fail and end the world. Whatever. This human is not worried. Why? Because I do not intend to fall in love with Marcus. The truth is I hate him. I hate his warm brown eyes with flecks of gold, his chiseled face and broad shoulders. I hate how over protective he is just because a few thousand demons are after me. In fact, I couldn’t care less about Marcus or his perfect telekinetic girlfriend.

I gulped, and for a moment I was incapable of speech. But he was quiet, waiting. “No. I don’t.” “Then I’m not dangerous at all,” he murmured. His gaze moved from my eyes to my mouth. “You’ve never been safer than you are at this moment.” I shivered as his breath tickled my skin.
