Spread the Book Love

I recently became fascinated by a book that releases this November and I thought that I'd share it.

Destined by Jessie Harrell

When Psyche receives a prophecy gone horribly wrong, she learns that even the most beautiful girl in Greece can have a hideous future. Her fate? Fall in love with the one creature even the gods fear.

As she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy, Psyche must choose between the terrifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she's come to expect out of life: you cannot escape what is destined.

Destined is a fresh and heartachingly romantic retelling of the Cupid & Psyche myth from debut novelist, Jessie Harrell.

Release Date: November 17th

Sounds good right?

Review: Elemental Reality by Cesya Marae Cuono

When Callie Pierce was ten, her mother disappeared without a trace. On the eve of her disappearance twelve years later, the Earth seemingly comes alive. The elements speak to Callie, and that's only the beginning. Everything she has ever known was a twisted fabrication to protect her. Now the truth is set free. Callie and her sister are more powerful than any Faerie ever born. Now they have to use their powers to save their mother and family from the evil hands of fate that threaten to tear them apart. Welcome to her elemental reality.

My Review:

Holy cow! This book was totally not what I was expecting. The first thing I noticed about this book was most definitely the cover, I mean look at it! It's gorgeous! What I wasn't expecting was an awesome story to go with the fabulous cover!

Callie Pierce is unlike the other main female characters of YA paranormal these days. She has a backbone. She also has this cute sense of style that I wish I could pull off! I adored her and her quirkiness. The side characters also held their own amount of fabulousness. Her sister had me laughing at practically every oppurtunity. (Red Bull!) And the love interest is so cute! He blushes! OMG how adorable!

Now that I'm done gushing about characters let's talk about the plot. It was nothing like I was expecting! The characters weren't what I was expecting! But I loved it! Who the heck would have thought that they'd be *******!? (No spoilers here people. ;)

I really loved Cuono's writing style and I'm excited to get my hands on a finished copy of Elemental Reality along with the next two books in this HAWT new series!

Release Date: August 21, 2011

Has anyone read Half-Blood???

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden.Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

Release Date: September 15th

I've heard some great things about this book and I was just wondering if it's as good as people say. If you've read it and loved it, please tell me because I'm really thinking about buying it.
