Book Blurb:

Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where a curse has marked Lena’s family of powerful supernaturals for generations. A Gatlin where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen.

Sometimes life-ending.

Together they can face anything Gatlin throws at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, keeping secrets …

All YA Love: The Accidental YA Reader + Giveaway

 I read all different kinds of books, every type, every theme, every style, every genre; if it’s a good book I will read it. That is unless it is a YA Book. In that case the type, theme, style and genre still don’t matter; I’m not going to read it. The last time I read a YA book I was about 12 years old. At least that is what I thought until about a week ago, when I discovered that statement wasn’t quite so true anymore.

(Yes, for those of  you keeping score that does mean I have not read the Twilight Series.) 

When I was working I sat at a little table outside and read during my lunch break everyday. One morning I was running late and didn’t have any unread books on my e-reader. So, I jumped onto Barnes&Noble.com to download one real …

The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she’s his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they’re all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids.” What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea—except that everything seems very wrong.

Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he’s in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn’t recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on?

Boor Blurb:
When Marrin Levy sends away for a field-husband to help her on her homestead, the most she hopes for is a man who can help her survive on the harsh desert planet of Lujawed. Keane Dealcore’s heart is as strong as his back, and he brings Marrin more than just his help in the fields. He brings her the love she thought she’d never feel again…

My Thoughts:
Perhaps I shouldn’t start writing this review before my tears are dried but I just can’t help myself. Amidst a Crowd of Stars is probably the best short story I have ever read. It caught my heart on the first page and didn’t let me go until …

Around the Bookish World: News Week-in-Review


Google is preparing the release of its UK version of Google Editions and has talked to several UK publishers to publish their books on this platform. Google has stated it would be working with the Agency model but whether this would be brought on board in the UK remains to be seen especially since Hachette is currently the only publisher that has signed up to this model.

More ebook news: 
During last week’s Book Fair in Franfurt, many publishers have stated that ebooks are increasingly becoming more popular and that once a reader has bought a reader they are probably ‘lost’ to print. Sale of Rights to work and Geo restrictions was also raised and Google’s Tom Turvey also

“asked whether gathering in one location to sell “geographic rights” would continue in the future. All of the panelists said …
