Review PARANORMALCY by Kiersten White

by Kiersten White
To Be Published August 31st 2010 by HarperTeen (That's like tomorrow guys!)
Hardcover, 352 pages

Placement in the Pile: Reaching New Heights (inching so close to top picks!)

Summary: (From GoodReads)
Weird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie's always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is a mermaid, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals' glamours, but still. Normal.

Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal.

Kiersten White has created such a cool little universe with her debut novel Paranormalcy. I think that it will really resonate with teenagers of all types. Really if you love some of those big name paranormal books, you will love this one. If you don't love those big name paranormal books....you will still love this one.

White's humor just jumps from every page. Evie is a teenage girl through and through. She has heart, spirit, and in the end this book is about her journey finding herself - while working for an international paranormal containment agency, her best friend is a mermaid, she has never remembered living in the normal human world, and having special powers of her own. Not complicated at all.

And the male protags, oh BLEEP they are hot! I am kind of in love with Lend. And Reth honestly creeps me out, but he is so mysterious I desperately want to know more about him!

I do admit there were some aspects of the book that made me not head over heels love it. Which is why I gave it my "Reaching New Heights" rating. I WANTED to give it a "Top Picks" rating very badly. I was very tempted. But some of the plot and some of the pacing just wasn't quite right to me. But seriously I am dying to read the next book! So it is a VERY worthy read.

So hit your bookstores tomorrow people and support this awesome debut novel!

Let's not forget to spread the word about our blog! Or if you are here for the first time hi! Be sure to follow us. Cause if we get 150 followers by Wed. our re-launch, blogiversary, and 100 followers giveaways will include B&N giftcards to make them even MORE awesome!

Writing for Charity!

On Saturday I went to this amazing event! I love my local Utah YA authors so so much! There is SO much talent here, it can sometimes be intimidating. But that also means I get to mingle with some awesome people!

The Writing for Charity event is an event that was started a few years ago by Shannon Hale! Utah authors get together and do a morning workshop and an evening silent auction and this year a great extravaganza show with an author panel, a comedy troupe and a local singer. All the money goes to buying books for children in local Utah schools, where the authors will go present each child with their own book! Shannon has yet to tell us how many books and schools will be benefited this year, but it seemed to be a success.

Emceeing the event was none other than Shannon Hale, in a wheelchair to protect those twin babies she is carrying! And James Dashner, doing everything he can to try and get us to bid on Shannon's placentas...yeah, they wanted money badly!

The author panel was wonderful! From Left to right, James Dashner, Brandon Sanderson, Bree Despain, Sara Zarr, Ally Condie, Jessica Day George, Brandon Mull and Shannon Hale!
They took questions from the audience that included writing advice, and questions just about books in general. Since I was up in front I asked "Since this is all about getting books into the hands of kids, what were your favorite books growing up?"

Their answers were all vastly different, but many of them took ME down memory lane. And really helped me realize that a love of reading really does start as a child. If it doesn't start there, chances are it won't continue.

Here are their responses:
  • James Dashner - Anything by Judy Blume, especially Superfudge
  • Bree Despain - Jackaroo by Cynthia Voigt
  • Sara Zarr - She expanded and said for her that time between 8 and 12 was magical, everything she read was important to her, but some of the top ones were: Little House on the Prairie, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase (one of my faves), and the Frog and Toad books!
  • Ally Condie - The Great Brain Adventures and the Anne of Green Gables books

  • Jessica Day George - Anything by Robin McKinley like The Hero and the Crown, Margarite Henry books, stuff by Walter Farley - anything Horses.
  • Shannon Hale - The Lottery Rose, The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley. She also said that if you ask children what their favorite book is a lot of kids say A Child Called It, but as an adult it is a harder book to get through.
Then they had author signings during the silent auction and I had a chance to chat with some of my author buds. This is me (right) with Ally Condie (middle) Author of upcomming MATCHED (So excited for her!) and my good friend budding Author Sara B Larson (she has an agent and is on submission at Publishing houses!).

Here is me and a new friend I met. One of my fave things I love about events like this is meeting other book-types! If you can't see what we're displaying, it is official replicas of Bella's engagement ring. These were the items we got at the auction (mine obviously needs to be sized!)

Here is Shannon and Jessica with their fingerless gloves provided by my friend above (snitchnstitch is her online profile). Now our favorite authors can type in the cold winter without getting cold hands!

And Jessica and Bree.

It was SUCH a fun night! Next year I'd like to have material to bring to the morning workshop as well! I love being part of this community, even if I am just a groupie for now.

Review RAMPANT by Diana Peterfreund

by Diana Peterfruend

August 25th 2009 by HarperTeen (first published August 18th 2009)

Placement in Pile:
A Bit Buried

Real unicorns are venomous, man-eating monsters with huge fangs and razor-sharp horns. Fortunately, they've been extinct for a hundred and fifty years.

Or not.
Astrid had always scoffed at her eccentric mother's stories about killer unicorns. But when one of the monsters attacks her boyfriend—thereby ruining any chance of him taking her to the prom—Astrid finds herself headed to Rome to train as a unicorn hunter at the ancient cloisters the hunters have used for centuries.
However, at the cloisters all is not what it seems. Outside, the unicorns wait to attack. And within, Astrid faces other, unexpected threats: from the crumbling, bone-covered walls that vibrate with a terrible power to the hidden agendas of her fellow hunters to—perhaps most dangerously of all—her growing attraction to a handsome art student ... an attraction that could jeopardize everything.


Killer Unicorns. Now that's something different, right? To best summarize RAMPANT, think Jurassic Park with hot young virgins as the task force organized to control the savage beasts. This book has promise wrapped up just in the premise—because devising a plot about the fluffy white mythological horse that every young girl has dreamed about and turning that dream into a blood-lusting, bone-grinding animal is pure genius. Right?


It could've been. Should've been. But sadly fell short. Unfortunately, the MC (main character), Astrid Llewelyn, Miss Protag herself, just doesn't have the IT factor to star in an entire novel…let alone two (but we'll get to that review next week).

So where did it go wrong? I say, from the start. When Astrid is first introduced her character actually leaves the young children she's babysitting to go out in the woods with her boyfriend, a boy that she doesn't even like all that much, so they can do the deed. And why would Astrid want to get her groove on? (While she's babysitting, nonetheless.) So that the lack-luster horn-dog boyfriend of hers will ask her to Prom. Hmm…hold up there. A prom date for sex. Really? Come on, Diana Peterfreund, what are you thinking?

Does the book get better after chapter one? Personally, I didn't think so. But as always, that's for you to decide.

Review THE IRON DAUGHTER by Julie Kagawa

Published August 1st 2010 by Harlequin Teen (first published July 27th 2010)

Paperback, 368 pages

Placement in Pile: Top Picks

Summary: Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron Fey, iron-bound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her. Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's alone in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.

Review: In a rare feat, this sequel was actually better than the first one. I couldn't put it down, and ended up reading late at night, and in the car on the way to a dinner party with my kids and hubby because I was determined to finish it! I don't want to say too much, so it doesn't spoil stuff for you, but this book makes my frustrations with reading Winter's Passage (the "in-between" novella you have to pay about $2.50 to buy an ebook online to read) worth it. This book takes you up, down, twists you up, spits you out, leaves you breathless for more and has heart stopping romance to boot. If you haven't started this series yet, you'd better go do it now! I can't wait for the final one. For now, I think I'm going to go reread some of my favorite parts of this one again... including the ending! Yay! A second book that has an ending I LOVED!

Review THE ADORATION OF JENNA FOX by Mary E. Pearson

by Mary E. Pearson
Published September 1st 2009 by Square Fish (first published April 29th 2008)
Paperback, 266 Pages

Placement in the Pile: Top Picks

Summary: (I thought I would do something fun for the Summary and embed the book trailer!)

Here is the link for the book trailer, the auto-play was driving me nuts. http://www.whoisjennafox.com/

This book makes a top pick for me because of how much it made me think, and for the fact that I couldn't put it down. Did I guess what had happened really early on? Yes. Did the twists fail to take me by surprise? Quite a few of them. Was it an amazing, thought provoking book? Absolutely. The writing is solid, the characters are complex and fabulous. While I was frustrated right along with Jenna, I could completely understand and sympathize with her mom, too. Her Grandma bugged me for a looong time, but when you finally understand everything (even though I guess what was going on, I still needed the details to figure out the dynamics of the relationships), it all makes sense and just works.

I highly recommend this book.

*again a review by Guinevere for ya! Thanks!

Review SLEEPLESS by Cyn Balog


Details: Published July 13th 2010 by Delacorte Press

Hardcover, 224 pages

Placement in Pile: Middle of the Stack

Summary: Eron De Marchelle isn't supposed to feel a connection. He is a Sandman, a supernatural being whose purpose is to seduce human charges to sleep. While he can communicate with his charges in their dreams, he isn't encouraged to--after all, getting too involved in one human's life would prevent him helping his other charges get their needed rest.

But he can't deny that he feels something for Julia. Julia, with her fiery red hair and her sad dreams. Just weeks ago, her boyfriend died in a car accident, and Eron can tell that she feels more alone than ever. Eron was human once too, many years ago, and he remembers how it felt to lose the one he loved. Eron has always felt protective of Julia . . . but now, when she seems to need him more than ever, he can't seem to reach her . . .

Sandmen are forbidden from communicating with humans outside their dreams. But will Eron be willing to risk everything for a chance to be with the person he loves?

Review: This book was definitely an interesting and unique premise, and overall it was a good read. It just wasn't fabulous in my opinion. I went into it expecting something a little bit different, based on the summary. Cyn Balog's imagination is certainly creative, coming up with an entire world based on "Sandmen" was pretty unique as far as I know. The writing was solid, the plot was fun and different, but in some ways this book just fell a little flat for me. Especially the ending. I felt like it ended way too neatly and easily for how much build up there was. Also, I had no idea Eron was supposed to be like insanely hot until over halfway through the book, so that was a surprise. Knowing that earlier might have helped a little bit. So, now you know--he's really hot apparently. ;)

Overall, this was a good read, but it didn't grab me and make me love it how I hoped it would. One way I rate my books is by the intensity of my desire to finish the book--the easier I can put it down, the lower the rating and vice-versa. While I wanted to know what happened, I could put this book down pretty easily at points, especially during the first half. Finally, the last third of the book grabbed my attention enough that I felt more urgency to finish it, but again the ending seemed a little too easy. But I liked how it ended, so... I was okay with it, but thought it would have been more meaningful if, well, it wasn't so easy. (I'm trying not to be spoilery.)

What did you think of SLEEPLESS?

Review DEMON PRINCESS: REIGN CHECK by Michelle Rowan

by Michelle Rowan
Published May 25th 2010 by Walker Books for Young Readers
Paperback, 292 Pages

Placement in the Pile: Reaching New Heights

Summary: (From Goodreads)
Nikki Donovan was a demon princess. Now she’s a demon princess in love.

Fresh from finding out she is a demon princess and meeting her father for the first time, Nikki Donovan is looking forward to getting back to her regular high school life. But then Rhys, the handsome teenage king of the faery realm, enrolls at her school as a “foreign exchange student.” Her conflicted feelings for Rhys and her boyfriend are getting in the way of her new relationship with the Shadow-creature Michael.

But this love triangle from hell isn’t even Nikki’s biggest problem: There’s a new prophecy that claims she will destroy all the demon and human worlds. Her best friend Melinda just might be a demon-slayer-in-training. Throw in a field trip to none other than the Underworld itself . . . and Nikki’s going to be hoping for a rain check on more than just her homework!

I liked this installment of the Demon Princess series even more than the first! Fast, funny and downright romantic I really loved this book and these characters.

Rhys is someone you can't help but like. My biggest complaint about this story was Michael lost some of his charm for me and that was a hard transition when this book is supposed to take place only weeks after the other one ended.

I loved how Michelle Rowan pulled other characters that you thought were normal into the paranormal world, introduced us even deeper into the life and politics of the underworlds, and stayed true to the character of Nikki.

If you liked the first, you will love the second! I can't wait for more in this series!

Review: THE IRON KING by Julie Kagawa

by Julie Kagawa
Published February 1st 2010 by Harlequin Teen (first published January 21st 2010)
Paperback,363 Pages

Placement in Pile: Reaching New Heights

This is an interesting and unique twist on faerie lore compared to most of the YA stuff being published right now. This felt more traditional to me, more frightening and darker version of the Fae than a lot of the faerie books I've read recently. At times it had the feel of the movie Labyrinth for me (for a few different reasons, but for one her half brother being kidnapped by faeries and her needing to rescue him... well there you go!). There was a lot of mythology based on Shakespeare, which worked at times but didn't feel quite right at others. The concept of the Iron Fey was interesting and unique, and I'm definitely intrigued to see where it goes from here. Her version of Puck was interesting, and I'm still not sure how I feel about him. Grimalkin was a fabulous character who I can't wait to get more of. I'm curious to see what happens with her and Ash, his final acts at the end of this book didn't seem to make sense after what he went through for her (trying not to be spoilery...) so I'm definitely interested in seeing what happens next. I have THE IRON DAUGHTER right now, so hopefully I will get that read and reviewed soon!

The one biggest complaint I had about this book (which isn't that big) was the overuse of the word "scuttled." Her characters did an inordinate amount of scuttling. Maybe no one else would notice that, but it got on my nerves.

Did I mention that Prince Ash is hot and that I can't wait to see what happens with them? Oh, and I just found out there is an "Iron Fey 1.5" novella online called "Winter's Passage" that you should apparently read BEFORE THE IRON DAUGHTER. Glad I didn't start reading it yet!

Overall, this didn't make my top picks for a faerie book, but it was well done, interesting, romantic and at times intense, and I would recommend it.
*Note: this is actually Guinevere's review! Thanks Guin! She just couldn't format it etc. so she just e-mailed it to me for me to post!

Review YOU WISH by Mandy Hubbard

You Wish
Mandy Hubbard

Details: August 5th 2010 by Razorbill

Paperback, 272 pages 

Placement in Pile:
Reaching New Heights

Summary: Kayla McHenry’s sweet sixteen sucks! Her dad left, her grades dropped, and her BFF is dating the boy
Kayla’s secretly loved for years. Blowing out her candles,
Kayla thinks: I wish my birthday wishes actually
came true. Because they never freakin’ do.
Kayla wakes the next day to a life-sized, bright pink
My Little Pony outside her window. Then a year’s
supply of gumballs arrives. A boy named Ken with
a disturbing resemblance to the doll of the same
name stalks her. As the ghosts of Kayla’s wishes-past
appear, they take her on a wild ride . . . but they
MUST STOP. Because when she was fifteen? She
wished Ben Mackenzie would kiss her. And Ben is
her best friend’s boyfriend.

You Wish is typical chick lit, bubble gum popping, boy-crushing, fun! To be frank, I loved it. All of its cute one liners and boy-girl/love-hate comedy. In the same fashion of Prada and Prejudice, Mandy Hubbard, author and now awesome Lit agent, details a story about a slightly quirky girl stuck in the woes of everyday life. Sound like you? It sure fit me a few years back…ok, maybe more than a few. Anyway, Hubbard's chick lit semi-fairy-tale-esque story is quick paced, a light and easy read, and most importantly it rings true with most teenage girls.
My only criticism is despite the punchiness of the book, the ending lacked luster. I was hoping for something a bit more. But then again, I could just be too picky. You'll have to decide that one on your own.

My suggestion: If you have a teenage girl at home who maybe isn't miss popular and perfect at everything, than this book is for her. Because sometimes, maybe a lot of the time, what we wish for isn't necessarily what we need.

Review HOW TO (UN)CAGE A GIRL by Francesca Lia Block

by Francesca Lia Block
Published March 1st 2010 by HarperTeen (first published September 1st 2008)
Paperback, 144 Pages

Placement in the Pile: A Bit Buried

The pain of wanting to fit in

The joy of being consumed by love

The shame of not feeling at home in your body

The strength in learning you're beautiful

These are moments that every girl knows . . . for they are part of growing up, of uncaging yourself, from your childhood, your environment, your view of yourself. Francesca Lia Block follows the journey from girlhood to womanhood in this three-part poetry collection that channels girls' innermost feelings and experiences and celebrates women everywhere. It is a call to embrace the girl within, to heal her and set her free.

The premise of this set of poems sounded really great. I love books that make girls feel better about who they are regardless of what they tell themselves, what media does to their brains about their beauty and worth. And trust me as a woman I feel so much of that as well...and I often just feel like that little girl looking at the boys flirt with the other girls and ignoring her. Sigh.

Anywho, I can say that I enjoyed most of the last 2 of 3 sections of this book. What makes it hard is although all the poems have a connection to one another, they are all so very different. There are some that I want to post and share with every female I know and some that made me go, ew.

You have to understand that I don't enjoy reading about sexuality in a blase sort of way as in "well it happens, it's gritty, and dirty, and hard and here it is in detail". And I certainly don't like reading about that kind of sexual encounters in a young teen's life. Does it happen? Sure does. Do I have the right to not like reading about it or to want to expose my daughter to that? Yep. So that is where my issue was with really just a few of the poems in this book.

So, if you are an adult, sure, read this cause there is stuff you may want to take down and share with your daughters some day. If you are a teenager and don't mind, or your parents don't mind you reading somewhat sexually explicit content, then read this. The overall message is great and I really enjoyed it.

I'm Baaack

And you can't get rid of me.

California was so so much fun! I spent two week sin Southern CA going to the beach and Knotts Berry Farm and just enjoying family. Then we went up to Sacramento to see more family, over to Oakland for a wedding and off to my first visit to San Fran (just one day spent up at Ghirardelli square, north Beach, Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 - not a bad day!).

It was fabulous, but I have missed my blogging community! So hi all! I am back and ready to review and do giveaways with a vengeance to make up for my absences. So get ready!
