Cover Reveal ~ Opposition

Today the cover of Lux #5Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout was revealed!

Here's the official blurb:

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

Waiting on Wednesday (3) ~ Heir of Fire

"Waiting On" Wednesday is an awesome meme created by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's "Can't Wait For" unreleased book is Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas which comes out September 2nd, 2014! 

Throne of Glass is my third favorite series. It's action-packed, well written, exciting, romantic, and has awesome characters set in a great fantasy world. After that cliffhanger-y Crown of Midnight, I am so anxious to get my hands on book #3, Heir of Fire. 

"Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien's only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan's Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn.

Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King's Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan's biggest threat - and his own toughest enemy. 

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?"

The cover reveal is tomorrow by the way!! :)

Fire With Fire by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian (Burn For Burn #2)

Fire With Fire (Burn For Burn #2)

Page Length: 528 Pages

Rating: 4 Stars

"Lillia, Kat, and Mary had the perfect plan. Work together in secret to take down the people who wronged them. But things didn’t exactly go the way they’d hoped at the Homecoming Dance.

Not even close.

For now, it looks like they got away with it. All they have to do is move on and pick up the pieces, forget there ever was a pact. But it’s not easy, not when Reeve is still a total jerk and Rennie’s meaner than she ever was before.

And then there’s sweet little Mary…she knows there’s something seriously wrong with her. If she can’t control her anger, she’s sure that someone will get hurt even worse than Reeve was. Mary understands now that it’s not just that Reeve bullied her—it’s that he made her love him.

Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, burn for a burn. A broken heart for a broken heart. The girls are up to the task. They’ll make Reeve fall in love with Lillia and then they will crush him. It’s the only way he’ll learn.

It seems once a fire is lit, the only thing you can do is let it burn..."

This sequel has far surpassed my love of the first book! It was more exciting, better written, and just fanfreakingtastic. Here are my thoughts on Fire With Fire.

This book was much more enjoyable than the first book. We jump right into things, no need for intros and such. I loved every second of this book!

I thought that Lillia developed a lot as a character in this book. We saw her personality shine through for once. She wasn't the robotic, unfeeling person she appeared to be in the first book.

Kat's character weakened in this book in my opinion. I liked her feistiness in the first book. This book she spent plotting, cursing, partaking in vices, or lusting after Ricky. Boring!

Mary went psycho in this book. She's unstable, and I had no idea what was going on in her POV.

I thought that the 3 POV style didn't work out well in this book. Lillia's narrative dominated by far. Kat's and Mary's narratives weren't that necessary in this book. Lillia's POV was the best while Kat and Mary rivaled to be less boring than the other. I didn't see the point of half of the events that took place in Mary's and Kat's POVs.

This book was more fast-paced and fun. The romance in this book was adorable. I totally ship these two people (yup, not gonna say who!) There were some awesome parties, lots of drama, and full-out revenging. What more could I want?

Well this book truly ended with a bang. Now I must wait forever for the final book :(

Burn For Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian (Burn For Burn #1)

Burn For Burn (Burn For Burn #1)

Page Length: 358 pages

Rating: 3 Stars

"Postcard-perfect Jar Island is the kind of place where nobody locks their doors at night, where parents can sleep easy, knowing their daughters are tucked away safe and sound in their beds. 

But bad things can happen, even to good girls . . . and sometimes, the only way to make things right is to do something wrong. 

Lillia used to trust boys, but not anymore. Not after what happened this summer. And she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her little sister from the same fate. 

Kat is over the rumors, the insults, the cruel jokes made at her expense. It all goes back to one person--her ex-best friend. Someone needs to teach her a lesson, and, with Lillia and Mary behind her, Kat feels up to the task.

Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she’s not the same girl anymore. Now that she’s got friends who have her back, he's going to be in big trouble.

Three very different girls who come together to make things right. Will they go too far?"

This book centers around vengeance. Mary wants revenge on her tormentor. Kat wants to humiliate her ex-best friend. Lillia wants to make a guy suffer for hitting on her younger sister. These girls are ruthless, they'll go so far to bring these people down.

Well darn. This book was so enthralling! I don't know what it was, something just pulled me in and kept my attention throughout this book. Here's what I liked and didn't like.

I really enjoyed the plot of this book.  The premise is just so inviting and enticing. Three girls getting revenge. It was exciting and fun watching them set up their clever and cruel pranks. But then again, I did feel bad for the tormentees...

I have mixed opinions regarding these characters. The authors did a great job of developing some characters and didn't do so well with others. I could really make out the personalities of Rennie, Reeve, and Alex. Mary, Lillia, and Kat I found lacking a bit which is strange since they're the main characters. Mary seems psychotic. I understand why, but besides being crazy she doesn't seem to have much character. Lillia was my favorite perspective to read of. Her parts were the most exciting yet she seems like an impassive robot to me. Kat's perspective was unsavory. I don't care much to read of people doing drugs, cursing, and smoking. Call me a prude. She lacked class and personality as well.

I liked the three points of view writing style. We needed each side to tell the story. I liked how each perspective fit together and brought the book to a satisfying whole.

Although I liked the 3 POV writing skill, the writing was simple and plain. Nothing fantastic, nothing bad.

I think there's a paranormal aspect forming in this book? I think that will put an interesting twist on the rest of this series. When I first opened this book, I thought it would be something much different. I thought it was a world like the Giver and would be about a controlling community and stuff. Boy was I wrong XD

I like the setting. The quaintness of it keeps a sense of familiarity to the story that I like. I wish the authors better described Jar Island though.

Rennie and Reeve so need to get what they deserve!! I am totally rooting for their downfall. Oh and I totally ship Lillia and Alex <3

Waiting on Wednesday (2) ~ The One

"Waiting On" Wednesday is an awesome meme created by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's "Can't Wait For" unreleased book is The One by Kiera Cass which comes out May 6th, 2014! 

I am fully invested in this series, The Selection. Although there are numerous flaws, I just need to know how this addictive romantic dystopian series will come to an end. Is my OTP (America and Maxon) end game? Or is Kiera Cass going to pull the rug out from under us? 

"The Selection changed the lives of thirty-five girls forever. And now, the time has come for one winner to be chosen.

America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the competition approaches its end and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants."

What books are you anxiously waiting for?
