September Wrap Up!

   This month many things happened for me! First of all school had started up again, and I couldn't be happier to see my friends again. On the down side my Math class is a totally pain in my butt, but oh well that's life for you. 
   Bookish wise, YALLFest is little over a month away and I am working my book off to collect enough money and books for the trip. You could say I'm a little bit excited. 
   Diamonds in the Rough comes out this month! Soon enough everyone will be able to own a book with my name in it, just the thought makes me giddy. 
   Lastly for this bookish month, I finally sent out my first ARC requests. Guess what?! I already got my first request in the mail, I got Burning Kingdoms by Lauren DeStefano.
When I first started blogging I had heard multiple times that publishing's don't consider you a serious blogger until 3 things happened. One, you post multiple times a week. Two, you have over 100 blog followers or a good amount of page views each month. Three, your blog must be over 6 months old. So having Simon and Schuster accept my request makes me feel like I'm serious blogger now, and that's all I really wanted.
   Something that I'm also very excited about that's not really bookish but exciting, is Halloween! I have nothing official yet about what I want to be, but I have a few ideas. What about you guys? What are you guys planning? Let me know here or on Twitter!

  Now for the bookish stats!

Book Blitz: Rush by Eve Silver


 Welcome to the Rush Book Blitz hosted by Bound Book Tours! I've personally enjoyed Rush by Eve Silver, so I hope you do too!

Rush by Eve Silver

Release Date: June 11th, 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Series: The Game #1

Description from GoodReads:

   So what’s the game now? This, or the life I used to know?

   When Miki Jones is pulled from her life, pulled through time and space into some kind of game—her carefully controlled life spirals into chaos. In the game, she and a team of other teens are sent on missions to eliminate the Drau, terrifying and beautiful alien creatures. There are no practice runs, no training, and no way out. Miki has only the guidance of secretive but maddeningly attractive team leader Jackson Tate, who says the game isn’t really a game, that what Miki and her new teammates do now determines their survival, and the survival of every other person on this planet. She laughs. He doesn’t. And then the game takes a deadly and terrifying turn.

Color and sound explode, too bright, too loud. Even the air on my skin feels like it’s too much. My fingers go lax. The bag’s handle slides down my palm, then along my fingers to the tips, impossibly slow. The world tips and tilts and I flail for balance. 
Luka grabs my hand and holds tight.
I blink. My house, my open front door, Dad, they’re all gone. My breath comes in short gasps and every muscle in my body feels like it’s knotted up tight.
I’m standing in a grassy clearing bounded by trees.
The lobby.
We’ve been pulled.

Eve Silver lives with her gamer husband and sons, sometimes in Canada, but often in worlds she dreams up. She loves kayaking and sunshine, dogs and desserts, and books, lots and lots of books. Watch for the first book in Eve’s new teen series, THE GAME: RUSH, coming from Katherine Tegen Books, June 2013. She also writes books for adults.

Book Review: Made for You by Melissa Marr

Release Date: September 16th, 2014
Read: August 20th, 2014
Publisher: HarperCollins
Series: N/A
Format: ARC Paperback, 368 pages
Source: Won in a giveaway.

Description from GoodReads:

   When Eva Tilling wakes up in the hospital, she’s confused—who in her sleepy little North Carolina town could have hit her with their car? And why? But before she can consider the question, she finds that she’s awoken with a strange new skill: the ability to foresee people’s deaths when they touch her. While she is recovering from the hit-and-run, Nate, an old flame, reappears, and the two must traverse their rocky past as they figure out how to use Eva’s power to keep her friends—and themselves—alive. But while Eva and Nate grow closer, the killer grows increasingly frantic in his attempt to get to Eva.


Please, let me go. I'm sorry. I don't want to die.
   When I first read Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange I just couldn't really get into the story. When I had won Made for You, I had already read the summery for the novel and was some what enticed by it. So naturally I gave Melissa Marr a second chance.
   Made for You was written in two perspectives. Eva and Judge, Eva being the main character of the book and Judge. The sociopath. Judge's perspective gave me chills through out the novel, his attitude the way he viewed things was horrifying. His 'messages' were always a creep factor for me, the bug being my favourite. All those things were what kept pulling me back for more. His character always had me guessing who he could possibly be. With out his creepy persecutive I think Made for You would be just another memory loss story.
   Eva, the rich vain girl. I had no sympathy for this girl, I might just not have connected with her character but for whatever reason but with both her and Judges points of view I found myself excited to see what he had in store for he. It's not every day where you read the perpetrator's side of the story. One thing I really didn't get about Eva's characters was her being able to see how everyone dies. Being stalked and having the power of seeing how someone dies isn't real, this book could have worked out perfectly without that little trait. So really to me the trait was unnecessary.
   Made for You was written lovely and thrilling to read, I was very glad I gave Melissa a second chance. I can't wait to read her next release!

~ This really had nothing to do with the book, but I loved who Made for You was dedicated too. If you followed Melissa on Twitter in I believe was the fall of 2013 to the winter of 2014, you'd have noticed that Melissa had problems with her new baby and the baby had to stay in the hospital for what seemed like forever. So seeing Made for You dedicated to the doctors, nurses, etc. at the Eastern Maine Medical Centre in Bandgor, Maine warmed my heart. I just thought I'd share that.

The Twixt #2
Expected: September 30th, 2014
Harlequin Teen

Description from GoodReads:

   Some things lie beneath the surface. 


   With the power to change everything. 

   Joy Malone wants it all—power, freedom and the boyfriend who loves her. Yet when an unstoppable assassin is hired to kill her, Joy learns that being the girl with the Sight comes with a price that might be too high to pay. Love will be tested, lives will be threatened, and everyone Joy knows and cares about will be affected by her decision to stand by Ink or to leave the Twixt forever. 

  Her choice is balanced on a scalpel's edge and the consequences will be more life-altering than anyone can guess.

Why I Want It:

   I had won a copy of Indelible on GoodReads and had instantly fallen in love. This book was a unique twist on Fairies or the fae. To be honest it creeped me the heck out, books don't creep me out often so Indelible was instantly a favourite. So now I need Invisible to get my next kick of creepy!

Why You Should Want it:

   Dude it's going to be creepy! Do you like to get a spidery feeling when you read? Of course you do,  this book is definitely for you!

   That's my Waiting on Wednesday for this week! Will you be picking up your copy at the end of October? What are you waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments!(:
