Review: Forgotten by Cat Patrick

Forgotten by Cat Patrick Published by Egmont Challenge: DAC Source: review copy Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her whole world disappears. In the morning, all that's left is a note telling her about a day she can't remember. The whole scenario doesn't exactly make high school or dating that hot guy whose name she can't seem to recall any easier. But when London starts experiencing disturbing visions she can't make sense of, she realizes it's time to learn a little more about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future. Part psychological drama, part romance, and part mystery, this thought-provoking novel will inspire readers to consider the what-if's in their own lives and recognize the power they have to control their destinies. *** Forgotten is a brilliantly original and awesome offering from a debut author. London is a 16 year old girl who can remember her future in the same way others rem

Review: Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck Published by Hodder Series: The Tiger Saga #1 Challenge: DAC Source: Review copy Passion. Fate. Loyalty. Would you risk it all to change your destiny? The last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she’d be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year-old Indian curse. With a mysterious white tiger named Ren. Halfway around the world. But that’s exactly what happened. Face-to-face with dark forces, spellbinding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever. Tiger’s Curse is the exciting first volume in an epic fantasy-romance that will leave you breathless and yearning for more. *** Tiger's Curse was a brilliant read which I enjoyed a great deal. It had all elements I love in a good book: An engaging and fast paced storyline, a gorgeous young man to swoon over and a wonderfully rich world built up around the main charac

In my mailbox (48)

In my Mailbox is hosted by This week I didn't get many books but the ones I got are awesome! I got ... Numbers 3 Infinity by Rachel Ward (UK paperback) I cannot wait to get started on thsi one. I loved book 2 and need to know what happens next and how it all ends! What happened to goodbye by Sarah Dessen (UK paperback) I haven't read any Sarah Dessen in a good few years but the times I have I have loved it. Probably one I'll start pretty soon too. Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Dessen (UK paperback) I have to admit I am not a fan of Alyxandra Harvey's other series at all but I have high hopes for this one.

Bookcase Showcase: Essjay from My Favourite Books

Hello! I’m Sarah (Essjay) from My Favourite Books and like the rest of us bloggers I’m obsessed by books and bookshops. I think it’s fair to say that my shelving is a little disorganized. I know where everything is (and why!) but I could do with tidying things up a bit. First off, upstairs in the library (or back bedroom) are the shelves where I put my modern keepers – books I love that are pretty current. This is where I keep my Melissa Marr, Cassandra Clare, Charlaine Harris and the such. They’re actually alphabetical which I’m quite proud of. The bottom shelf is mostly writing and reference stuff.  On the other side of these shelves is my To Be Read pile. For some reason the more urgent the book the closer to the floor I put it until they’re almost throwing themselves at me. I used to try and keep it alphabetical but that’s sort of gone by the wayside. The top of these two shelves are books that I’d like to get round to reading at some point but it just hasn’t happened ye
