I am super, super excited about my Magic Monday this week, darlings! It's one of the books I'm most excited to read, and only haven't yet because my TBR stack insists on growing. I mean, seriously. But anyway. I also love this author. She is one of my favorite people.

Dualed (Dualed, #1)
Elsie Chapman
Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
Release Date: February 26, 2013
Breath held, I turn to see the figures of the two Alts outside. Slightly rippled through the bulletproof glass and little more than blurred shadows beneath the hazy glow of the street lamps, but their movements are familiar, a choreography of steps of all citizens of Kersh have seen before. One Alt finally tumbles to the ground. The other crouches before him, checking for vitals. It hits me how their silhouettes could almost be mistaken for lovers.

Yes, I did indeed provide an extra-long excerpt this week. Because I can, and this book is just…ahhh. I know it is. So, hope you enjoyed! It probably won't happen too often :)

Well then, all you have to do to win this book is read my Giveaways page before entering. Really, that's all! I promise that it is that simple.

Oh, and here's your .

Good luck, darlings!

My darling daughter,
Know that I never would have left the Earth if it hadn't already been doomed…

The generation ship Asherah coasts through space, bound for a planet its passengers have never even seen. On the eve of their arrival, sixteen-year-old botanist Terra discovers that her orderly society has fractured. Walking home one night through the long-abandoned engine rooms, she witnesses the murder of an innocent man. Now, called on by the Children of Abel, a group of rebels intent on destroying the High Council, Terra must prove her mettle--assassinate the ship's rising captain. In order to carry out her task, Terra must betray her father, deceive her teacher, and challenge everything the Council has ever taught her was true.
The rebels think that Terra has nothing left to lose. But when she falls for Silvan Rafferty, the boy that she's meant to kill, Terra learns that "doing your duty" isn't always as easy as it seems.

Wicked Kiss (Nightwatchers, #2)
Michelle Rowen
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: February 26, 2013
I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul...or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don't...I hurt myself.
Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy, one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger. They're both part of a team of angels and demons that's joined forces in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I'll be able to help Bishop-or if I'm just another part of the darkness he's sworn to destroy....
When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...

Life After Theft
Aprilynne Pike
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: April 30, 2013
Moving to a new high school sucks. Especially a rich-kid private school. With uniforms. But nothing is worse than finding out the first girl you meet is dead. And a klepto.
No one can see or hear Kimberlee except Jeff, so--in hopes of bringing an end to the snarkiest haunting in history--he agrees to help her complete her "unfinished business." But when the enmity between Kimberlee and Jeff's new crush, Sera, manages to continue posthumously, Jeff wonders if he's made the right choice.
Clash meets sass in this uproarious modern-day retelling of Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Hey there, roses! It is the last day of my 3-day event Best of 2012. Here's a quick recap: on Day 1, I posted my five favorite standalones from 2012. On Day 2, I showed my five favorite sequels that were released in 2012. On this last day, today, I will be revealing my five favorite 2012 debuts. Of course, they are in no particular order :)

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)
Sarah J. Maas
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Children's
Release Date: August 7, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

Seraphina (Seraphina, #1)
Rachel Hartman
Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
Release Date: July 10, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty's anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high.
Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen's Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints of a sinister plot to destroy the peace, Seraphina struggles to protect her own secret, the secret behind her musical gift, one so terrible that its discovery could mean her very life.
In her exquisitely written fantasy debut, Rachel Hartman creates a rich, complex, and utterly original world. Seraphina's tortuous journey to self-acceptance is one readers will remember long after they've turned the final page.

Crewel (Crewel World, #1)
Gennifer Albin
Publisher: Farrar, Strauss, and Giroux
Release Date: October 16, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
Enter a tangled world of secrets and intrigue where a girl is in charge of other’s destinies, but not her own.
Sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys has always been special. When her parents discover her gift—the ability to weave the very fabric of reality—they train her to hide it. For good reason, they don’t want her to become a Spinster — one of the elite, beautiful, and deadly women who determine what people eat, where they live, how many children they have, and even when they die.
Thrust into the opulent Western Coventry, Adelice will be tried, tested and tempted as she navigates the deadly politics at play behind its walls. Now caught in a web of lies and forbidden romance, she must unravel the sinister truth behind her own unspeakable power. Her world is hanging by a thread, and Adelice, alone, can decide to save it — or destroy it.

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)
Robin LaFevers
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Release Date: April 3, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?
Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.
Ismae’s most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?

I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent, #1)
Barry Lyga
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Release Date: April 3, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
What if the world's worst serial killer...was your dad?
Jasper "Jazz" Dent is a likable teenager. A charmer, one might say.
But he's also the son of the world's most infamous serial killer, and for Dear Old Dad, Take Your Son to Work Day was year-round. Jazz has witnessed crime scenes the way cops wish they could—from the criminal's point of view.
And now bodies are piling up in Lobo's Nod.
In an effort to clear his name, Jazz joins the police in a hunt for a new serial killer. But Jazz has a secret—could he be more like his father than anyone knows?
Oh dear God, I do not think you understand how hard it was for me to only choose five books to list here. There were so many fabulous young adult debuts in 2012. Although I kind of cheated, because a couple of these are not actually the authors' first books. But they are still the first of a series, so whatever. It's my list and I'll do what I want! So, hope you enjoyed. If you don't read another book besides these five, read them!



Welcome again to the second day of my Best of 2012 feature! Yesterday I posted my five favorite standalones. Today, I'll be posting my five favorite books from 2012 that are part of a series but not the first book. So, not debuts.

Enshadowed (Nevermore, #2)
Kelly Creagh
Publisher: Atheneum
Release Date: August 28, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
Varen Nethers is trapped in a perilous dream world -- a treacherous and desolate realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. Isobel Lanley, plagued by strange visions and haunted by the nightmares of Varen's creation, is the only one who can save him.
Isobel knows that her only hope lies within a Baltimore cemetery. There, in the early morning hours of Edgar Allan Poe's birthday, a mysterious stranger known as the "Poe Toaster" will make his annual homage at the legendary poet's grave.
Only the Poe Toaster holds the key to the way between worlds. But even greater dangers lie ahead for Isobel. An ancient evil, draped in veils of white, is watching, challenging her for Varen's affections. When Isobel finally finds Varen, he is no longer the quiet and brooding boy who once captivated her, but a dark force, powerful and malevolent.
Princess of the Silver Woods (Princess, #3)
Jessica Day George
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Children's Books
Release Date: December 11, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
When Petunia, the youngest of King Gregor's twelve dancing daughters, is invited to visit an elderly friend in the neighboring country of Westfalin, she welcomes the change of scenery. But in order to reach Westfalin, Petunia must pass through a forest where strange two-legged wolves are rumored to exist. Wolves intent on redistributing the wealth of the noble citizens who have entered their territory. But the bandit-wolves prove more rakishly handsome than truly dangerous, and it's not until Petunia reaches her destination that she realizes the kindly grandmother she has been summoned to visit is really an enemy bent on restoring an age-old curse. The stories of Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood get a twist as Petunia and her many sisters take on bandits, grannies, and the new King Under Stone to end their family curse once and for all.

Hallowed (Unearthly, #2)
Cynthia Hand
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: January 17, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
For months Clara Gardner trained to face the fire from her visions, but she wasn't prepared for the choice she had to make that day. And in the aftermath, she discovered that nothing about being part angel is as straightforward as she thought.
Now, torn between her love for Tucker and her complicated feelings about the roles she and Christian seem destined to play in a world that is both dangerous and beautiful, Clara struggles with a shocking revelation: Someone she loves will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.
In this compelling sequel to "Unearthly," Cynthia Hand captures the joy of first love, the anguish of loss, and the confusion of becoming who you are.

The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey, #5; Call of the Forgotten, #1)
Julie Kagawa
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: October 23, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
Don’t look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them.
That is Ethan Chase’s unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he’d dare to fall for.
Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister’s world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
Veronica Roth
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Release Date: May 1, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
One choice can transform you--or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves--and herself--while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable--and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
"New York Times" bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian "Divergent" series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.
That was a difficult list to put together! So many fabulous sequels came out this year, and many of these series have yet another sequel coming out next year. Something to look forward to for certain!

Hi, darlings! Welcome to the Sparkles and Lightning 3-day event in which I show my favorite books from 2012! Today I will be listing my top five favorite standalone books that were released in 2012. Here they are, in no particular order.

The Fault in Our Stars
John Green
Publisher: Dutton Books
Release Date: January 10, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 13, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now.

Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.

Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.
Adrienne Stoltz
Ron Bass
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: October 2, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
What if you could dream your way into a different life? What if you could choose to live that life forever?
Sloane and Maggie have never met. Sloane is a straight-A student with a big and loving family. Maggie lives a glamorously independent life as an up-and-coming actress in New York. The two girls couldn't be more different--except for one thing. They share a secret that they can't tell a soul. At night, they dream that they're each other.
The deeper they're pulled into the promise of their own lives, the more their worlds begin to blur dangerously together. Before long, Sloane and Maggie can no longer tell which life is real and which is just a dream. They realize that eventually they will have to choose one life to wake up to, or risk spiraling into insanity. But that means giving up one world, one love, and one self, forever.
This is a dazzling debut that will steal readers' hearts.
Every Day
David Levithan
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Release Date: August 28, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
In his New York Times bestselling novel, David Levithan introduces readers to what Entertainment Weekly calls a "wise, wildly unique" love story about A, a teen who wakes up every morning in a different body, living a different life.
Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.
It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.
With his new novel, David Levithan, bestselling co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, has pushed himself to new creative heights. He has written a captivating story that will fascinate readers as they begin to comprehend the complexities of life and love in A’s world, as A and Rhiannon seek to discover if you can truly love someone who is destined to change every day.
A Temptation of Angels
Michelle Zink
Publisher: Dial Books for Young Readers
Release Date: March 20, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
Even angels make mistakes in this page-turning epic romance.
When her parents are murdered before her eyes, sixteen-year-old Helen Cartwright finds herself launched into an underground London where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil. Helen learns that she is one of three remaining angelic descendants charged with protecting the world's past, present, and future. Unbeknownst to her, she has been trained her whole life to accept this responsibility. Now, as she finds herself torn between the angelic brothers protecting her and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong, because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.
Michelle Zink masterfully weaves historical fantasy with paranormal romance to create a gripping tale of love and betrayal.

For Darkness Shows the Stars
Diana Peterfreund
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Release Date: June 12, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | My Review
It's been several generations since a genetic experiment gone wrong caused the Reduction, decimating humanity and giving rise to a Luddite nobility who outlawed most technology.
Elliot North has always known her place in this world. Four years ago Elliot refused to run away with her childhood sweetheart, the servant Kai, choosing duty to her family's estate over love. Since then the world has changed: a new class of Post-Reductionists is jumpstarting the wheel of progress, and Elliot's estate is foundering, forcing her to rent land to the mysterious Cloud Fleet, a group of shipbuilders that includes renowned explorer Captain Malakai Wentforth--an almost unrecognizable Kai. And while Elliot wonders if this could be their second chance, Kai seems determined to show Elliot exactly what she gave up when she let him go.
But Elliot soon discovers her old friend carries a secret--one that could change their society . . . or bring it to its knees. And again, she's faced with a choice: cling to what she's been raised to believe, or cast her lot with the only boy she's ever loved, even if she's lost him forever.
Inspired by Jane Austen's persuasion, "For Darkness Shows the Stars" is a breathtaking romance about opening your mind to the future and your heart to the one person you know can break it.
So, there you have it…the best five standalones of 2012 according to yours truly! Hope you enjoyed, and look at for tomorrow's post!



Wednesday, December 26, 2012
Buongiornio, le mie rose! There's your Italian for the day. I'm not sure when you'll ever have the need to say, "Good day, my roses," in Italian, but hey, if you do, now you know! Anyway, today is Wednesday, which means it's time for the weekly meme Waiting on Wednesdays hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It's also the day after Christmas and the last Waiting on Wednesday of 2012!

Goddess (Starcrossed, #3)
Josephine Angelini
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: May 28, 2013
After accidentally unleashing the gods from their captivity on Olympus, Helen must find a way to re-imprison them without starting a devastating war. But the gods are angry, and their thirst for blood already has a body count.
To make matters worse, the Oracle reveals that a diabolical Tyrant is lurking among them, which drives a wedge between the once-solid group of friends. As the gods use the Scions against one another, Lucas’s life hangs in the balance. Still unsure whether she loves him or Orion, Helen is forced to make a terrifying decision, for war is coming to her shores.
In Josephine Angelini’s compelling conclusion to the masterfully woven Starcrossed trilogy, a goddess must rise above it all to change a destiny that’s been written in the stars. With worlds built just as fast as they crumble, love and war collide in an all-out battle that will leave no question unanswered and no heart untouched.

 I am really, really excited for this one. I enjoyed the first two books immensely, and while I'm sad that the trilogy is concluding I can't wait to see how everything ties together. Also, check out the covers. I can't wait to get my hands on this book.

Team Orion or Team Lucas? I'm not sure. Lucas had my heart wholly in the first book, but then he got all weird and creepy in the second book and Orion showed up and was so sweet! I wonder what Josie is going to do with that.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

THE VENOM READALONG! Signups are up for one week, starting today, so be sure to sign up by the 31st*!

*Otherwise known as the end of the year ;)

General Info

This readalong (hosted by Nikki of Fiction Freak and me!) gives you the chance to finally read Venom if it's been stuck in your TBR or if you want to just read it again! And if that's not enough for you, we do have a few incentives…US only, sadly. But everyone else can still join in just for fun!

4 Swag Packs
~ Venom button
~ Venom bookmarks
~ Venom magnet
~ (possibly) Belladonna bookmarks

2 Grand Prizes
1 signed copy of Venom + a swag pack
1 ARC of Belladonna

These are, like, seriously good prizes. Not even kidding. They're gonna be fabulous. Nikki has actually been lucky enough to read Belladonna already (I know, right? Hello, jealousy.) and she says it was amazing.

It's a pretty simple readalong. But super fun.

Starting from January, we'll email you about 6-9 questions and you must answer at least 3-6 of them. Then, every Monday or Tuesday visit me here! I'll have a linky posted on my blog. Be sure to link up properly. We'll be randomly choosing the winners for the swag packs from those lists and the winners for the Venom and Belladonna copies from the sign up list here! We will be checking to make sure you've posted. That's a promise. All prizes will be sent out at the end. Any questions can be emailed to me!

Rules and Guidelines

You must have a blog or tumblr.

You must answer at least once a week and the appropriate amount of questions.

Be respectful. Putting spoilers in your post is just mean and unfair to everyone involved.

Please start reading now!

Week 2: Chapters 9-17
Week 3: Chapters 18-26
Week 4: Chapters 27-34

And don't forget to link up to sign up! :) Once you fill out this form you'll get an email asking you to confirm your subscription to the mailing list. Please, please, please be sure to do this! I cannot stress how important that is! If you do not confirm your subscription to the mailing list you will not receive the readalong questions and that will make participating kind of difficult.

And though you obviously don't have to do this (though it would be really great if you would!) here's a to let people know that you've signed up for the readalong and also invites them to come and signup too.
