The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow #1) by Rachel Morgan

The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow, #1)The Faerie Guardian by Rachel  Morgan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I found a copy of this book online on Smashwords. I’m not going to lie- I had incredibly low expectations simply because the book was free. Except it is absolutely amazing.I love the world-building. This is such a different book. It’s intriguing, it’s mysterious and it is impossible to put this book down! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. I thought the romance between Nate and Violet was a bit forced but Nate was a sweet character.This may not deal with the same supernatural creatures but this is my new Harry Potter.

Every Vow She Breaks (Who’s Watching Now #3) by Jannine Gallant

Every Vow She Breaks (Who's Watching Now, #3)Every Vow She Breaks by Jannine Gallant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love how each title in this series is from a song. This book deals with a broken vow and brings a variety of possible suspects. The reader is keep on edge throughout the novel. Claire has made a vow and broken it. And now she’s going to pay. But the question is who is the guy leaving her threatening messages? Her ex-husband? Her ex-boyfriend who she once thought she would marry? Her cheating ex who she was going to marry? Or is it just some crazy person who is obsessed with her? This book was both romantic and thrilling. I couldn’t stop until I found out precisely who was stalking Claire and every few seconds my top suspect changed. I loved this book. It was like an insane roller-coaster ride and I enjoyed every second of it. I will definitely be reading the other books in this series.

Book Review: With Malice by Eileen Cook

With MaliceWith Malice by Eileen Cook
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Eileen Cook’s books. They’re well-written and comforting. I like to think of them as the hot chocolate of the book world. You can generally be sure of a great feel-good story in an Eileen Cook novel. Note that I said “generally”. This book is not one of those occasions. Yes it was well-written and impossible to put down like other books of hers that I’ve read. But if Cook’s other works are hot chocolate this one is a dark coffee. It’s strong and will keep you up all night.Jill wakes up in the hospital with no memory of the past six weeks. She has no memory of her trip to Italy, no memory of her best friend’s death and especially no memory of killing her. Simone and Jill had been friends since fourth grade. Jill may not have her memory but she knows she would never kill her best friend.However the media, her school, her friends, family and the Italian police all seem to think differently.As more evidence comes to light, even Jill starts to doubt her innocence. This book was impossible to put down. I suspected the ending but it was still a shock. Fans of mystery and Eileen Cook will love this book. It’s so different from the other books of hers I’ve read but it’s also so damned great!Get yourself a copy ASAP!

Fab Book Finds for February

Some of the world’s greatest books are releasing this Feb. Here’s what’s on my reading list:

1) Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
Release Date: February 2

The enchantment continues…. The universe of the Lunar Chronicles holds stories—and secrets—that are wondrous, vicious, and romantic.
2) Remembrance by Meg Cabot
Release Date: February 2

In REMEMBRANCE, the seventh installment of the Mediator series, all Susannah Simon wants is to make a good impression at her first job since graduating from college (and becoming engaged to Dr. Jesse de Silva).

But when she stumbles across an ancient murder, old ghosts—and ex-boyfriends—aren’t all that come back to haunt her.

REMEMBRANCE will be the first ever adult installment of the Mediator, published by William Morrow, the adult division of HarperCollins, the company that brought you the YA books in the series.

3) Raging Sea by Michael Buckley
Release Date: February 2

In the first book of Michael Buckley’s Undertow trilogy, the Alpha arrived and the world was never the same. At the start of the second book, most of south Brooklyn is in ruins and the nation is terrified. Nearly everyone that Lyric Walker loves is either missing or presumed dead, including the mesmerizing prince Fathom. It’s up to Lyric to unite the Alpha before the second wave of a cataclysmic invasion wipes out mankind for good. The Undertow trilogy is an unforgettable reading experience that author E. Lockhart calls,“Allegorical and romantic, the book nevertheless reads like an action movie with especially awesome CGI.”

4) The Unforgettable Hero by Valerie Bowman
Release Date: February 2

To escape a forced marriage to her loathsome, social-climbing cousin, Cecelia Harcourt banks on selling a romantic novel. But when she’s hit by a coach on the way home from meeting a potential publisher and loses her memory, the accident leads to an encounter with a fascinating man. . . who she’s convinced is the hero of her novel.

Due to his brother’s influence, Lieutenant Adam Hunt finds himself honorably discharged from the army. Adam intends to make his way in the world without the help of a war-hero duke, brother or no. He finds his plans for independence sidetracked by a chance encounter with a lady whose memory has gone. She believes he’s a hero. Can Adam become the man he was meant to be and fill that lofty role?
