Goodreads Post - HUSH,HUSH by Becca Fitzpatrick

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

hush, hush was alright. from the beginning i found it a bit predictable and fairly drawn out, with almost all the good stuff at the end. i did like the mystery surrounding Patch, but mostly it was an okay read that i'd recommend to people but i didn't think it deserved four or five stars. interested in the sequel however. :)


Here's the cover art for Bree Despain's THE LOST SAINT, which is out in December. i have to say she's got lovely cover art for this one, along with THE DARK DIVINE. im a bit partial to the blue, though! Excellent cover art, Bree! :)


First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World, #1)First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

fantastic, Jeaniene's writing never, ever goes stale and i think i love Spade more than Bones now! :)

here is a list of all the books that have come in the mail since i've been back in the UK :)

- LINGER by Maggie Stiefvater. i got an early look at SHIVER last year, and i cannot wait to get started in this next book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series. Maggie is a lyrical storyteller, and i can't wait to meet her when she comes to the UK in October!

SISTERS RED by Jackson Pearce -- I won this at the Book Vixen's blog, and it was on my wishlist anyway! :)

INTERTWINED by Gena Showalter - this was the book i was after THE MOST in the US while i was there, so it's pretty high up on my TBR pile! :)

13 TO LIFE by Shannon Delany - Shannon is a friend and i've been anxious to get my hands on this book since i heard it was going to be published. Congrats, Shannon! :)


When I first heard in April that I was going to be one of the lucky few to get an early look at the newest in Jeri Smith Ready's awesome WVMP's series, I literally jumped up and down screaming with joy. This series, by and large, has been my favourite read(s) of the last two years, so when I got this book into my hands, I devoured it straight away.

Ciara Griffin is back, and she's now almost finished with her Marketing degree! This means that the deal that she made with the Control, a government agency that deals with the paranormal, has come due. Along with living with her vampire boyfriend, Shane, and her job at WVMP, Ciara's got a pretty full plate.

Then some weird kind of virus starts taking lives in Sherwood... and nobody seems to be safe. Nobody human, that is. And vampires aren't all that's lurking in the depths of the night.

From the moment I picked up this book, til the very last page, I was hooked. Jeri's writing is majestic, spellbinding storytelling that keeps you on the edge of your seat. What will Ciara and the WVMP camp do amidst the terror that's spreading through Sherwood? You stay moulded to the seat of your chair in anticipation of the next chapter in this book.

BRING ON THE NIGHT is a roller-coaster ride of sex, blood, and lets not forget Rock and Roll. oh yeah, ZOMBIES. did I mention Zombies?? Along with a spine tingling twist in the WVMP world that will have readers feeling as though they've just come off the Tilt-A-Whirl, this book is an engaging, fast paced read that you wont want to put down.

Now, how long til the next installment???

FIVE STARS OUT OF A POSSIBLE FIVE (if i could go any higher, i would).
