Harper Teen Sampler - Enjoy!

 Hungry for more Dystopian.  Harper Teen has released a sampler of their dystopian books, including DIVERGENT !!! enjoy

Obsessed with the Lux Series from Jennifer L Armentrout

Lost in Books ...

For the past weeks I have been dragged in to a few really good series, therefore I have been MIA somewhere hiding reading away. 

Yes I admit it sometimes I escape and hide from my kids in the bathroom, porch and even car just to finish a good book.  Haven't you done that? 

I will be soon posting a total of eight book reviews that have left me wating more, including one that is completely out of character for me.

The Immortal Rules Movie News!

We've got some amazing news for Julie Kagawa fans!

Palomar Pictures Options The Immortal Rules and Blood of Eden Series
by New York Times Bestselling Author Julie Kagawa
Independent film production company Palomar Pictures today announced that it has optioned Blood of Eden, the newest series from New York Times bestselling young adult author Julie Kagawa.  The Immortal Rules, the highly anticipated first book in the Blood of Eden series, will be published by Harlequin TEEN on April 24, 2012.
The Immortal Rules is set in a future world where humanity, decimated by a deadly virus, exists merely as a food source and slave class to an elite society of vampires. When a young woman, a survivor who dreams of the day humanity will rise up against their supernatural masters, is turned into a vampire, she is forced to choose between becoming what she despises or helping those who would destroy her.
Palomar principal Joni Sighvatsson was passionate about The Immortal Rules’ film potential and quick to secure film rights for the book and the Blood of Eden series. “It’s simply a great story with an electrifying heroine for the 21st century.  It makes the series an ideal subject for a film adaptation," said Sighvatsson. "Julie’s ability to familiarize the reader with this complex world in a few pages demonstrates the cinematic qualities of her imagination and complements my own sensibilities as a film producer."

Julie Kagawa felt that Sighvatsson was the right producer to partner with because of his tremendous track record for getting his films made and his passion for her books. "Joni does not take on a project unless he really loves it," Kagawa said. "He's thoughtful and established, and I know he's going to make a great movie that respects my material."
Sighvatsson has acquired a solid reputation in the movie industry. With more than 40 feature-film credits under his belt, Sighvatsson has worked closely with a wide range of talent, both in front of and behind the camera. The trademarks of his projects are the pairing of visionary directors—such as David Lynch, Kathryn Bigelow, Nicolas Winding Refn and Julian Schnabel—with strong material. This has led to a body of work that is rich and diverse.
Natashya Wilson, senior editor for Harlequin TEEN, is thrilled that Kagawa's novels are finally coming to the big screen. "Julie writes in such a cinematic way, I have seen her books as films from day one. Her fans have been clamoring for Julie Kagawa movies for a long time and I am so pleased that they are finally going to get their wish fulfilled!"

New soul
Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.
No soul
Even Ana’s own mother thinks she’s a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she’ll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?
Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies–human and creature alike–let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?

There are many things that I loved about this novel. The world and of course the writing style. The title and prologue captivated me and I wanted to find out more about Ana and what she was. 

I enjoyed the relationship between Ana and Sam, yet at the same time I found it to be unnerving. I simply wanted to picture Sam as a teen, but we are constantly reminded that he has had several lives, several forms and several loves. Is Ana only appealing because she is  different… A new soul?
The ending was also rather abrupt. The intensity builds and builds, perhaps I was just expecting too much. I’m definitely interested in revisiting this world and these characters. I feel as though the story has only just begun.

I give this books 3 out of 5 hearts

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

Want to read a sneak peak of this sequel.  I know I couldn't wait.

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Today my Twitter account exploded with Insurgent and Divergent comments.  This is part of the pre - launch hype following this very anticipated sequel to Divergent.  The campaign that started today is Will faction will you choose?

If I were to choose I would be a perfect fit for Candor.  The Candor faction prizes the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. They serve as the law, and as reporters and administrators. Above all, they strive to be honest in their dealings with others.

Play a little and if you haven't seen the trailer yet enjoy!
