FOREVER US COVER REVEALED

Wolves of mercy falls book 3: Forever cover revealed
I love this series sooo much, and the take on the werewolf side of the twilight craze instead of the Vampire side. But anyways... The USA cover to the third and final book is now released!
Do you want to see it?
Are you ready?
Are you sure?
Well here it is!!!!!!!!!

I  absoloutly love this cover, and I love the use of red for the final color. Can't wait to read this!
P.S. - The font I used at the very top of the page is the 'Wolves of mercy falls' UK Cover font.

The strange power: Kaitlyn is an artist, but not an ordinary one; everything she draws comes true. When she is invited by Dr Xetes, a scientist who is studying psychic abilities, to join his school of "talented individuals" in California, Kaitlyn is only too happy to go. There she meets Rob, a healer, and Gabriel, a dark lone wolf, who apparently wants nothing to do with her. But with so much supernatural energy going around, it's hardly surprising that the psychics soon develop a telepathic link that can't be broken. The Possessed: Having learned the dark secrets of the psychic institute, Kaitlyn and her new friends are on the run, not even daring to contact their parents or old friends. As the group h…

Shadowland - Alyson Noel - Review

Ever and Damen have travelled through countless past lives - and fought off the world's darkest enemies - in search of each other. But just when their destiny seems finally within reach, a powerful curse falls upon them. A single touch of their hands, a soft brush of their lips will mean death for Damen - cast into the darkness of the Shadowland. But as she seeks to break the curse, Ever meets Jude - a green-eyed, golden surfer boy who understands magick, and understands Ever better than she realises. And she begins to ask a terrifying question: even if you're immortal, can true love really last forever?


Let's get things straight. I liked the book a lot.

Because it's the first book in the series that isn't a twilight WannabeIt's the first book in the series to make magick more a part of the bookand there is tension between Damen and Ever, because of Karma and the new mysterious Ju…

Nightlight - The Harvard Lampoon - Review

Book: Nightlight
Author: The Harvard Lampoon
Publisher: Constable

Rating: B-


When you like, live forever, what's there to live for? 'About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him - which I assumed was wildly out of his control - that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me'. And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in this hilarious send-up of "Twilight". Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events - Edwart leaves his hash browns untouched at lunch! - he saves her from a flying snowball and Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwa…

When Eragon finds a polished stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight his simple life is shattered and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands - 'A winner - tip of the hat to young master Paolini' Anne McCaffrey, author of The Dragonriders of Pern series'A compelling …

Vampireology - Nick Holt - Review

Just to let you know I couldn't find a summary for the book, and this review may be a lot shorter than a fiction book as it is Non-Fiction.

To start off I want to say this is NOT for the faint hearted. Anyone who gets scared by horror or the original vampire, well this is not for. This is really creepy, but also totally awesome. Just beware because this could give you some serious night mares. 


  Just A Fact ------    Do Not Read     After Dark
I absolutely adored this book. It was so cool, with fake letter, and fake shards of a sword. It was pretty awesome. I love the tale of the three fallen ones. Pretty cool. I also love how seeing a vampire AND fallen angels (love those bad guys!) they've included both. YAY FOR ME! The cover is stunning, The sliver foil has a awesome effect along with the plastic ruby encrusted in the middles part of the book. My favorite part was probably the holographi…

Need - Carrie Jones - Review

Book: Need
Author: Carrie Jones
Publisher: Bloomsbury
ISBN: 9781400807408
Rating: A★


Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect Facebook friends. It's little wonder, since she's had a fairly rough life. Her father left when she was a baby, her stepfather just died and her mother's almost given up - in fact, she's sent her to live with her grandmother in cold and sleepy Maine to 'keep Zara safe'. Zara doesn't think she's in danger; she thinks her mother just can't cope. Zara's wrong. The man she sees everywhere - the tall, creepy guy who points at her from the side of the road - is not a figment of her imagination. He's a pixie. But not the cute, sweet kind with little wings. Maine's got a whole assortment of unbelievable creatures. And they seem to need something - something from Zara...

One of the best books I have read in ages. It funny, creepy, and just everything you need to have a good book. You probably thinking - Oh n…

The Choice - Nicholas Sparks - Review

Book: The Choice
Author: Nicholas Sparks
Publisher: Sphere
ISBN: 9780751540574
Rating: A+

Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job; loyal friends; his dream home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life, he believes that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is until Gabby Holland moves in next door. Despite Travis's attempts to be friendly, she seems to have a chip on her shoulder about him. But something compels Travis to get to know his new neighbor. His persistent efforts lead them both to make tough decisions, the consequences of which neither could have foreseen. The Choice confronts us with that most heart-wrenching question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?

I adored this book and how it's so simple but has a massive effect on the reader. It goes through the daily life issues and just makes them so interesting. The writing as usual is amazing. Nicholas really helps you to understa…
