What I’m Currently Reading
I had this on my currently reading list last week and ended up only reading a page! Not having this available through the Kindle has been a big deterrant as I rarely remember to get out the iPad to read a book. Will have to make a big effort this week to get it finished off.
Don’t Sweat. Don’t Laugh. Don’t draw attention to yourself. And most of all, whatever you do, do not fall in love with one of them.
Gene is different from everyone else around him. He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood. Gene is a human, and he knows the rules. Keep the truth a secret. It’s the only way to stay alive in a world of night—a world where humans are considered a delicacy and hunted for their blood.
When he’s chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt the last remaining humans, Gene’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble around him. He’s thrust into the path of a girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible—and into a ruthless pack of hunters whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. Now that Gene has finally found something worth fighting for, his need to survive is stronger than ever—but is it worth the cost of his humanity?
I made a last minute decision to request it from Netgalley and now must try and have it finished and reviewed before the publication date of 26 April 2012!
Imagine there is someone you like so much that just thinking about them leaves you desperate and reckless. You crave them in a way that’s not rational, not right, and you’re becoming somebody you don’t recognise, and certainly don’t respect, but you don’t even care.
And this person you like is unattainable. Except for one thing…
He lives downstairs.
Abbie has three obsessions. Art. The ocean. And Kane.
But since Kane’s been back, he’s changed. There’s a darkness shadowing him that only Abbie can see. And it wants her in its world.
A gothic story about the very dark things that feed the creative process.
What I Recently Finished Reading
I was really dissapointed with this book. It was slow, I didn’t like the characters, the romance was abysmal and to be frank there was just nothing particularly interesting about the story. I found myself procrastinating reading which is always a sign that I’m not enjoying myself at all.
Matthew has loved Ariel from the moment he found her in the tunnels, her bee’s wings falling away. They live in Safe, an underground refuge for those fleeing the city Above–like Whisper, who speaks to ghosts, and Jack Flash, who can shoot lightning from his fingers.
But one terrifying night, an old enemy invades Safe with an army of shadows, and only Matthew, Ariel, and a few friends escape Above.As Matthew unravels the mystery of Safe’s history and the shadows’ attack, he realizes he must find a way to remake his home–not just for himself, but for Ariel, who needs him more than ever before.
ABOVE is the debut of an amazing new voice.
What I Plan on Reading Next
I have requested this through Edelweiss and am desperately keen to read it. If I’m approved for an e-galley then I’ll be reading it asap as the publication date is the 24th April 2012.
Everything is in ruins.
A devastating plague has decimated the population. And those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles to pieces around them.
So what does Araby Worth have to live for?
Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery make-up . . . and tantalizing ways to forget it all.
But in the depths of the club—in the depths of her own despair—Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club. And Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. Neither boy is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does.
And Araby may find something not just to live for, but to fight for—no matter what it costs her.
Still on my list from last week and still very keen to get started on it! I thought the synopsis of this book sounded awesome and as it’s also an Australian author I’m so glad I’m getting the opportunity to read this.
They know nothing of each other. They know nothing of the Telling.
But they’ll need to learn fast if they’re going to survive…
