The Secret circle - LJ Smith

The circle's power has lured her home
Forced to move from sunny California to gloomy New England, Cassie longs for her old life. Even so, she feels a strange kinship to a terrifying group of teens who seem to rule her school. Initiated into the coven of witches that's controlled New Salem for hundreds of years, she's drawn into the Secret Circle, a thrill that's both intoxicating and deadly. But when she falls for the mysterious and intriguing Adam, Cassie must choose whether to resist temptation or risk dark forces to get what she wants—even if it means that one wrong move could ultimately destroy her.

Been meaning to read her stuff for ages - will get there eventually

Killing God - Kevin Brooks

Dawn Bundy is fifteen. She doesn't fit in and she couldn't care less. Dawn has other things on her mind. Her dad disappeared two years ago and it's all God's fault. When Dawn's dad found God, it was the worst time ever. He thought he'd found the answer to everything. But that wasn't the end of it.

was actually recommened this author by Sophie McKenzie - I think she has co written a book with him. I thought this one looks good.

The girl with the dragon Tattoo

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

Not my usual type of book but I have heard good things and it is definately the type of book my mum likes so thought it was worth getting


Linger - Maggie Stiefvater

Continues the story of the wolves of Mercy Falls. . .

It's about after. What happens after you discover there are werewolves in the wood, after you've fallen in love for the first time, after you've lost what you think you can't live without, after you've become someone you can't live with

so incredibly excited about this - I have already started it and hope to get some time over the next few days to really get stuck in.


Great books! I can't wait till I get my copy of Linger, I adored Shiver so I'm hoping this will be just as good. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a pretty intense mysterious read but well worth it, enjoy.

I am right in the middle of the Dragon Tattoo myself and just as everyone has told me, it is a bit slow, but at the same time, you still want to keep reading to find out what happens! Happy reading!
Oh I like that cover for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Not thrilled with the cover on mine. Enjoy!

Yay Linger! I enjoyed that one tremendously. Happy reading!! :D

I've been dying to read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo!! I hope you enjoy the book as much as I know I'm going to once I get it :)
Kevin Brooks is one of those authors that I think I'll really love. I've only read one book of his (The Road of the Dead, I think it was called) but I have two more of his on my TBR pile that I'm hoping I can get to soon. Can't wait to hear what you think of Killing God.

Ooh, Linger as well! Enjoy it, and I hope you feel as strongly to the ending as I did! :)

I adore L. J. Smith, she's my favourite author forever and ever. But I love The Forbidden Game the most. I talk so much about it that it annoys people (;
Linger was great, I read it in one day and loved it.
How come you speak German, btw?
Legacy of my German A Level and GCSE from over 10 years ago now. I can only really string basic sentences together although I can read German a little better than I speak or write it (I have a German copy of Harry Potter that I recall reading parts of for my A Level). Your English is far superior than my German.

I just read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - very intense but very exciting and suspenseful. I just got Shiver from the library today and I'm assuming Linger is going to follow soon after!

I guess it's far more easier to learn english than any other language because it's far more common to learn it at school and essential for almost everything in (online)life (; Furthermore I'm going to become an english teacher sooner or later (; But I think it's great that you try to hold on to your german. I learned french at school and I forgot how to speak it (what makes me really sad, because it's a beautiful language nevertheless.)
So really good readds there - enjoy :D

I want the green cover - I can't get it here in hardback so I only have the paperback which is this cover (although it is nice)
