Betrayal by Lee Nichols

Emma Vaile is the most powerful ghostkeeper in centuries. Which is great when she's battling the wraith-master Neos, but terrible when she's flirting with fellow ghostkeeper (and soul mate) Bennett. When ghostkeepers fall in love, the weaker one loses all power, and that's not something Bennett can handle. Heartbroken and alone, Emma tries to lose herself in school with fellow ghostkeeper, Natalie. When a new team of ghostkeepers arrive—one a snarky teen boy, the other a British scholar—Emma finds solace in training for the battle against Neos. But as the team grows stronger, they are threatened by an unknown force. One they thought was good. As chilling and page-turning as Deception, this sequel will grab readers and hold them to the last page. No one is safe from suspicion as Emma closes in on the traitor.

This series is amazing. The first book in the Haunting Emma series, Deception blew me away. Betrayal did the exact same thing. With this book, Lee Nichols provides more of the addicting story that readers love. Deception left off with an epic cliffhanger and Betrayal leaves off with an even bigger one. Lee Nichols has really good character development that flows along with the plot perfectly.
Lee Nichols is becoming one of my favorite writers with this series. I’m not a big paranormal person and I’m not a big series person, but this series breaks past all my reading barriers. Lee Nichols has written my vision of the perfect paranormal series, I loved Betrayal as much (or more than) I loved Deception. Young Adult readers everywhere should read this series. I love it!

Style by Lauren Conrad

Lauren Conrad is just twenty-four, but she is already well known for several reasons. Her reality roles in MTV's Laguna Beach and The Hills made her famous; her pretty face has graced the covers of Cosmo, Seventeen and other magazines; she designs a namesake clothing line; and she's the author of the top-selling teen novels L.A. Candy and Sweet Little Lies. This fully illustrated style guide features Lauren's favorite tips on looking good and staying stylish.

I won this book in a HarperTeen giveaway that included various other books. I wasn’t going to read or review Style, but someone asked me to-so I am. I’ve mentioned this before, but when I was little for years and years I wanted to be a fashion designer. I have 8 notebooks full of my “designs”, but that dream is long-gone. I know all the brand name fashion designers and almost everything related with the fashion world, from when I was totally obsessed with it. I really hoped that Lauren Conrad’s style book would be much more than it was. A lot of what Conrad talked about were things you could only do if you have a large amount of money, which isn’t the case for a lot of people.
Style will be helpful to a lot of people. The tips in this book are useful and Lauren Conrad has a vast amount of knowledge with things involving fashion, colors, and makeup. In all honesty, my biggest and only complaint about this book is that a lot of the tips mentioned are only useful if you aren’t low on funds.
This book will be helpful to a lot of people, and is good for people who are interested in what Lauren Conrad has to say about her fashion.

Haven by Kristi Cook

Violet McKenna isn’t a normal girl with normal teenage issues; she has more to contend with than most people could handle. Violet thought she was just crazy when she had a vivid vision of her dad’s murder. Her life started falling apart when her premonition came true. She’s had flashes of other events too. The problem was nobody believed her until she found a new school: Winterhaven.

At Winterhaven, Violet finally feels like she belongs. She quickly finds a close group friends and discovers that they too have psychic ‘gifts’—as do all the students at Winterhaven. But as soon as she feels settled she discovers the most intriguing and alluring boy she has ever met, and things quickly go awry. As the attraction between them grows, intense visions of the boy’s death start to haunt her. In her premonitions the secret he is unwilling to share begins to reveal itself. And to Violet's horror, she learns that their destinies are intertwined in a critical—and deadly—way.

This book was surprising in so many ways. I really didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. Haven flowed really well. The writing was superb, as well as the characters and the voice. Kristi Cook wrote surprising twists and turns that I found absolutely invigorating. Though Haven may not be a completely original idea, I find it hard to compare it to any other books I’ve read in the past. Violet was a character that I loved spending time with. She’s a strong female lead character that I think a lot of people will be able to relate to.
Haven has a bunch of thrilling surprises and secrets. I highly recommend it to people who enjoy books about mysterious schools, amazing characters, and killer writing.

Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton

Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.

Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.

She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

I reluctantly started reading this book when I told myself I wasn’t going to read anymore Paranormal books because “they were all the same”. And then I finished Darkness Becomes Her. And then I fell in love with paranormal again. This is a small book- but it took me a few days to read. Partly because school is eating my life right now, and partly because I wanted to savor every word of this book. I didn’t want it to be over.
I liked how mysterious this book was. I felt like at any time, I could turn a corner and be surprised. I loved how unique the storyline was, as well as the characters. Ari was superbly written, her dialogue is snappy and she's a likable character overall.
Darkness Becomes Her was surprisingly addicting and will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time you’re reading it. I highly recommend this book.

A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford

Eden didn’t expect Az.

Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings.


So long happily-ever-after.

Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven.

She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else’s game. Her heart is her own.

And that’s only the beginning of the end.

Every time I try to write this review I can’t- because I’m at a loss for words. This being Leah’s first book, I am tremendously impressed. A Touch Mortal kept me hanging on every word. This is one of the best angel books that I’ve read. This book isn’t small, and that’s not a secret. The size of A Touch Mortal might scare off people, I truly hope you aren’t intimidated by it. Inside the thick exterior of this book lies something truly lovely- a story you’ll read nonstop and fall in love with.
I couldn’t stop reading. This was one of those books that I hid under the covers with when I was supposed to be asleep. When I should have been doing homework, I was procrastinating because I was too busy reading A Touch Mortal. Even after I was done reading- I wanted to go back and explore Eden’s world once more.
I can’t wait to read the other books in this trilogy- they can’t come out soon enough! Leah Clifford wrote a book that you won’t be able to forget.

Radiance by Alyson Noel

Riley has crossed the bridge into the afterlife—a place called Here, where time is always Now. She has picked up life where she left off when she was alive, living with her parents and dog in a nice house in a nice neighborhood. When she’s summoned before The Council, she learns that the afterlife isn’t just an eternity of leisure. She’s been assigned a job, Soul Catcher, and a teacher, Bodhi, a possibly cute, seemingly nerdy boy who’s definitely hiding something. They return to earth together for Riley’s first assignment, a Radiant Boy who’s been haunting a castle in England for centuries. Many Soul Catchers have tried to get him to cross the bridge and failed. But all of that was before he met Riley . . .

Sadly, this book didn’t meet my expectations. Don’t get me wrong, I loved it- like I love all of Alyson Noel’s books. Radiance took me forever to read. It took me a few tries to finally get done reading it, so it is safe to say that Radiance is a pretty slow read for such a small book.
That being said, Noel continues to thrill me with her lyrical and enchanting writing. I loved being able to dive deeper into Riley’s life (since we’re so familiar with her sisters life). Riley was a quick, witty, snappy character that I loved. I found her dialogue amusing and hilarious. She is currently competing with her sister for being my favorite.
I think this book nailed it’s target age range. It is one of the few middle grade books that I have enjoyed. I think kids will like it because of how light it is. Radiance has a fierce main character, an adorable dog, and a very cute-nerdy boy- that is an amazing group of things that makes Radiance a staple in every young girl’s reading list.

Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton

A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once. While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember.

2011 books just get better and better! Courtney Allison Moulton wrote an amazing debut book that I couldn’t put down. Ellie and Will were electric. Angelfire had non-stop action that you just can’t resist. I loved that Angelfire was about reapers. It was the first reaper book that I’ve read, and it makes me want to seek out more.
The romance in this book was incredibly well written. Every piece of dialogue left me hanging. Moulton did a lovely job capturing the voice of a teenage girl. Ellie annoyed me at some parts because she only sounded like a spoiled teenager, but that is my only complaint about this book.
I can’t wait to read the next book in this series, because I’m sure they will be great! Courtney Allison Moulton is a debut author to watch because she’s going to write great things.

Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting

The missing dead call to Violet. They want to be found.

When Violet Ambrose's morbid ability to sense the echoes of those who've been murdered leads her to the body of a young boy, she draws the attention of the FBI. She is reluctantly pulled into an investigation that will endanger more than just her secret...but her relationship and possibly her life as well.

Kimberly Derting wrote a chilling book that you won’t be able to put down! I read this in one sitting and couldn’t put it down. Desires of the Dead was intense, addicting, romantic, and action-filled. Violet is an amazing main character who is frighteningly different while still being someone you can relate to. There’s also Jay. Amazing, amazing Jay who captures your heart in one fair swoop.
The Body Finder was an irresistible book and so is Desires of the Dead. The cover and plot are both illuminating and alluring and I really hope you read this series.
There were parts when I was confused and didn’t really know what was going on, but besides that I have no complaints about this book. It is one of my favorite YA series’. The idea of the books are original and I just love them! I can’t wait to see what Kimberly has coming out next!

Mad Love by Suzanne Selfors

When you're the daughter of a best-selling romance writer, life should be pretty good. But for 16-year-old Alice Amorous, daughter of the Queen of Romance, life is an agonizing lie. Her mother's been secretly hospitalized for mental illness, and Alice has been putting on a brave front, answering fan letters, forging her mother's signature, telling the publisher that all is well. But the next book is due and the Queen can't write it. Alice needs a story for her mother. And she needs one fast. That's when she meets Errol, a strange boy who's been following her. A boy who tells her that he has a love story. A boy who believes he's Cupid. As Alice begins to hear Errol's voice in her head, and begins to see things she can't explain, she must face the truth - that she's either inherited her mother's madness, or Errol is for real.

Yet again, Suzanne blows me away with one of her books. I didn’t like Mad Love as much as I liked Coffeehouse Angel, but I still really enjoyed reading it. Some aspects of the novel I thought were a bit stereotypical in YA books, like the mother being a romance novelist- but I liked how Suzanne spun it in a way that made her story more original from other YA novels that feature some of the same problems.
Mad Love was fun and quirky, while still being serious and composed. This is a hilarious novel that is a great book for people looking for something light to read.
I loved the characters in this book. Alice seemed like someone who I could relate to and be friends with. Errol was the dark and mysterious man that is all-too-familiar in young adult books, but I still found him enchanting.
This book has its faults, but I really enjoyed it.
It was addicting, hilarious, and fun!

But 16-year-old Alice Amorous has been living a lie ever since her mother was secretly hospitalized for mental illness. After putting on a brave front for months, time is running out. The next book is overdue, and the Queen can't write it. Alice needs a story for her mother—and she needs one fast.

Babe in Boyland by Jody Gerhman

When high school junior Natalie--or Dr. Aphrodite, as she calls herself when writing the relationship column for her school paper--is accused of knowing nothing about guys and giving girls bad relationship advice, she decides to investigate what guys really think and want. But the guys in her class won't give her straight or serious answers. The only solution? Disguising herself as a guy and spending a week at Underwood Academy, the private all-boy boarding school in town. There she learns a lot about guys and girls in ways she never expected--especially when she falls for her dreamy roommate, Emilio. How can she show him she likes him without blowing her cover?

I wanted to read Babe in Boyland for so long! When I started reading it, I loved Jody Gerhman’s writing. But as I started to get into it, I started to like it less. In all honesty, Babe in Boyland felt like it was taken straight from an episode of Zoey 101. There was also one scene that was noticeably like a scene in the 10 Things I Hate About You movie. The idea was executed really well, but I didn’t feel like the plot was very original.
That being said, I think that Gerhman did I really good job developing the characters in this novel. All of them were fun to read about and well rounded. I also really liked how the author added in the Dr. Aphrodite column to the story instead of it being just about Natalie disguising herself.
I think that there are people who will really like Babe in Boyland. It just wasn’t the novel for me though.

The Name is Tiny, Tiny Cooper.

So I just got an eReader. It's a Sony Touch that looks like the one in the picture.
For the longest time I was one of those people who were completely against eReaders. I made a pretty good argument against them. Yet here I am, telling you all that Zoe has a brand new book toy.

What I like about this particular one is that you have the option of using the touch screen or using the buttons at the bottom.
The one complaint I have about this eReader and most eReaders is that it isn't back-lit.

I know why it isn't back-lit, I just don't like it.

I got the Sony Touch today and I've already uploaded 30 eBooks and eGalleys to it. It's easy to navigate around and I like it a lot so far.

Now time to tell you about how I got the title for this post.

I love naming my electronics (and bookshelves). My old laptop was Alaska Young and my current laptop is named Bradford Levithan. Out of my three bookshelves, only one is named (her name is Annabelle, and she is amazing. I also had a bookshelf named Julian, but we had to give him away because he was too bulky).

A few nights ago on twitter, I asked the lovely late-night-twitter-people what I should name my new reader. Awesome blogger Nancy suggested the name Tiny Cooper. Tiny Cooper, as some of you may know- is a character in Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan.

So the eReader will now be known as Tiny Cooper. He is awesome and I love him.

*I am in no way being paid to talk about Sony eReaders.

Witch and Wizard by James Patterson

The world is changing: the government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now, kids are disappearing. For 15-year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside down when they are torn from their parents one night and slammed into a secret prison for no reason they can comprehend. The New Order, as it is known, is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager. But while trapped in this totalitarian nightmare, Wisty and Whit discover they have incredible powers they'd never dreamed of. Can this newly minted witch and wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents--and maybe the world?

I’ve never been a big James Patterson fan, but I got this for Christmas so I thought I should read it.
I hate to admit it, but I actually kind of liked this book. It was addicting, when the other books I was reading at the time weren’t. The plot was snappy and the characters were the same. I didn’t like how distant everyone seemed. Normally when you read a book, you connect with it. You feel for the characters and you relate to them. This wasn’t the case in Witch and Wizard. The characters and what they did seemed really distant. I like connecting with the characters, and I wasn’t able to do it when reading this book.
James Patterson is a really popular author, if you like reading his books than I hope you read this one. But I don’t think he’s the author for me.

So Shelly by Ty Roth

Until now, high school junior, John Keats, has only tiptoed near the edges of the vortex that is schoolmate and literary prodigy, Gordon Byron. That is, until their mutual friend, Shelly, drowns in a sailing accident. After stealing Shelly's ashes from her wake at Trinity Catholic High School, the boys set a course for the small Lake Erie island where Shelly's body had washed ashore and to where she wished to be returned. It would be one last "so Shelly" romantic quest. At least that's what they think. As they navigate around the obstacles and resist temptations during their odyssey, Keats and Gordon glue together the shattered pieces of Shelly's and their own pasts while attempting to make sense of her tragic and premature end.

So Shelly was a very interesting book. It’s really dark, but it’s also really fun to read and see which direction the story goes. While So Shelly was good, I don’t think it’s very memorable. Ty Roth did a good job with the characters in So Shelly, the way he wrote them really allows you to get a firm grasp on the characters and their personalities.
It’s hard for me to say my opinion on this novel because it was just… weird. I liked it but I didn’t like it. So Shelly is one of those books that’s just plain indescribable. I like the concept of the story, I’m not sure about how Ty Roth wrote it though. The story he’s trying to get across get’s a bit confusing.

Pink by Lili Wilkinson

Ava has a secret. She is tired of her ultracool attitude, ultra-radical politics, and ultrablack clothing. She's ready to try something new—she's even ready to be someone new. Someone who fits in, someone with a gorgeous boyfriend, someone who wears pink.

Transferring to Billy Hughes School for Academic Excellence is the perfect chance to try on a new identity. But just in case things don't work out, Ava is hiding her new interests from her parents, and especially from her old girlfriend.

Secrets have a way of being hard to keep, though, and Ava finds that changing herself is more complicated than changing her wardrobe. Even getting involved in the school musical raises issues she never imagined. As she faces surprising choices and unforeseen consequences, Ava wonders if she will ever figure out who she really wants to be.

Love. Love. Love. Love.
Pink was so amazing. It took me awhile to get into, but once I did- I couldn’t stop reading. Pink was first published in Australia last year (I think it was last year, it may have been in 2009) and all of the Australian reviewers I follow have said that they love it. When I received Pink, I couldn’t wait to start it. I read it straight through and was in awe.
Wilkinson wrote an amazing debut that leaves me wanting to read more of her writing. The characters in Pink were so real. I easily related to most of them. Wilkinsons’ writing is witty, spunky, and addicting. Though this novel is light and fun, it also covers some deeper issues that many teens today are faced with. Things like sexuality, independence, and betrayal are all talked about in this novel. Though the slightly girly title may turn you off, don’t be fooled. Pink is an emotional, intriguing story that everyone should read.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

Going into Delirium, I didn’t really know what to expect. I’m a fan of Laurens first book Before I Fall, but that and Delirium are wildly different from each other. I had read mixed reviews about how people liked and disliked Delirium, so I didn’t know what I would think after reading it.
I wasn’t sure that Lauren could pull off a dystopian since it’s a new genre to her, but my oh my could she pull it off!
The writing in Delirium is completely captivating. I stayed up until 3am reading, just so I could read it straight through. There were so many points in this book where I stopped breathing and held my breath until the scene I was reading ended. Oliver knows how to write incredibly realistic characters. I was rooting for Lena through her whole journey and I never wanted it to end.
I need the sequel to this book now. I’m pretty sure I have developed the deliria for Lauren’s writing because I would be perfectly content read Lauren Oliver books 24/7. I highly recommend Delirium, it made me laugh, cry, and get Amor Deliria Nervosa.

Close to Famous by Joan Bauer

Foster McFee dreams of having her own cooking show like her idol, celebrity chef Sonny Kroll. Macon Dillard's goal is to be a documentary filmmaker. Foster's mother Rayka longs to be a headliner instead of a back-up singer. And Miss Charleena plans a triumphant return to Hollywood. Everyone has a dream, but nobody is even close to famous in the little town of Culpepper. Until some unexpected events shake the town and its inhabitants and put their big ambitions to the test.

Close to Famous was a quick, light-hearted book that readers are sure to enjoy. I’ve never read anything else by Elizabeth Bauer, but after reading Close to Famous I really want to. Bauer wrote these characters perfectly. Despite this novel being noticeably short, it was timed really well. Also, this novel is about making cupcakes… which makes it amazing- point blank.
I liked Closed to Famous because of how original it was. You don’t see many books in the Young Adult literature world about a dyslexic girl who loved baking but can’t read directions. Overall, I think that Elizabeth Bauer knows how to write in a way that will captivate readers with her sugar-sweet novel.

You Killed Wesley Payne Giveaway

Today I have the wonderful opportunity to give away a copy of You Killed Wesley Payne by Sean Beaudoin. Here is a little bit about the book-

He's come to do a job.
A job that involves a body.
A body wrapped in duct tape found hanging from the goal posts at the end of the football field.

You Killed Wesley Payne
is a truly original and darkly hilarious update of classic pulp-noir, in which hard-boiled seventeen year-old Dalton Rev transfers to the mean hallways of Salt River High to take on the toughest case of his life. The question isn't whether Dalton's going to get paid. He always gets paid. Or whether he's gonna get the girl. He always (sometimes) gets the girl. The real question is whether Dalton Rev can outwit crooked cops and killer cliques in time to solve the mystery of "The Body" before it solves him.
