Am I seeing right?

Roaming the vast isles of a nearby book store I noticed how many books have similar and even identical covers.  I am sure you have seen them out there.  Some are very obvious other have designs and effects added to make a difference.  I have decided to post some examples of the ones I saw today.

This post is not intended to offend anyone.

Book Review - Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

by Andrea Cremer
Release Date: October 26, 2010
2010 Philomel Books
Hardcover Edition; 455 Pages
ISBN: 978-0-399-25482-6
Genre: Young Adult
Source: Review Copy from Publisher


Calla knows her future, she understands her present and her past.  She is the alpha of her wolf pack.  A strong willed, independent soul.  Her world is suddenly changed when she saves the life of a boy  (Shay).  A boy that does not belong to her world.  Her past, present and future is shaken and stirred by a series of situations that evolved around her.

She questions her past and her place in this world.  She falls for Shay without even knowing it.  Oh! sweet and funny Shay.  Ren Bane the other Alpha leader will tempt her and maybe win her heart.


My opinion

I can honestly say this is the best book I have ever read.  So much that it kept me reading even at work.  Yes I know, I was supposed to be working.  I was happy I found this series just before the second book Wolfsbane came out.  Fortunately for me the wait was not as long and desperate as other readers.  Andrea Cremer is a genius.  She has created a fantasy world that truly feels real.

My books have lived on and I have passed them on to Twilight fans that have sworn they would never fall for another series.  I am happy to say are now as obsessed as I am with the series.

I will bite my nails and stress out until January 24, 2012.  Yes!! I am counting the days.


I give this book five hearts.  It was exciting, interesting and well written.

Hello Everyone and Welcome to my blog

I am obsessed with the Young adult book genre.  My love for reading and writing goes back all the way to my teenage years.  

As a mother of three and in my late thirties, (there I said it!) it has been very hard to explain why I love reading books that target teenagers.  Specially my husband, who I quote "I wish I was one of those books or your laptop"

I absolutely love the pure genuine love this books evolve around.  In fact I love this genre so much that I have now embarked in my own new journey.

Juggling a full time job, three kids and a very demanding husband I have decided to write my own novel.  This dream of mine has not been easy to begin.

I have less hours to sleep at night, because it is the only time I have peace and quiet.  I obsess daily about my new world and always carry my laptop and a notebook with me to scribble away.

Come join me in this journey through wonderful worlds that include pure love, paranormal and other incredible stuff.
