Synopsis:

Finding a new home has never been so dangerous.

Andromeda has spent all seventeen years of her life aboard a deep space transport vessel destined for a paradise planet. Her safe cocoon is about to break open as Paradise 21 looms only one month away, and she must take the aptitude tests to determine her role on the new world and her computer assigned lifemate. As a great-granddaughter of the Commander of the ship, she wants to live up to her family name. But, her forbidden love for her childhood friend, Sirius, distracts her and she fails the tests. The results place her in a menial role in the new colony and pair her with Corvus, “the oaf”.


But when Andromeda steps foot on Paradise 21, her predestined future is the least of her worries. Alien ghosts from a failed colonization warn her of a deadly threat to her colony. And when Sirius's ship crashes on the far ridge in an attempt to investigate, she journeys to rescue him with Corvus.


Andromeda now must convince the authorities of the imminent danger to protect her new home. What she didn't expect was a battle of her own feelings for Sirius and Corvus.

Can she save the colony and discover her true love?

STACKING THE SHELVES



STSmall
This is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. I think this is so much fun! Join in and meet other bloggers too.

What is Stacking The Shelves all about?



We are all book lovers and the need to share our enthusiasm is sometimes overwhelming. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

If you’re anything like me, you are probably hoarding books and even though you are excited about your latest book arrival, it might be a while before you get to review it and Stacking The Shelves is a good way to express your undying enthusiasm for those titles!


Stacking the ShelvesThis is what I've stacked on my shelves this week:


From Net Galley:
 
Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful #1)by Jamie McGuire
Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)

Kindle Edition
361 pages
Published: May 26th 2011

The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate percentage of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance between her and the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand.

Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

Crave (The Clann, #1)Crave (The Clann #1)by Melissa Darnell Paperback
416 pages
Published: October 25th 2011
Publication: Harlequin Teen

Savannah Colbert has never known why she's so hated by the kids of the Clann. Nor can she deny her instinct to get close to Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman. Especially when she recovers from a strange illness and the attraction becomes nearly irresistible. It's as if he's a magnet, pulling her gaze, her thoughts, even her dreams. Her family has warned her to have nothing to do with him, or any members of the Clann. But when Tristan is suddenly everywhere she goes, Savannah fears she's destined to fail.

For years, Tristan has been forbidden to even speak to Savannah Colbert. Then Savannah disappears from school for a week and comes back…different, and suddenly he can't stay away. Boys seem intoxicated just from looking at her. His own family becomes stricter than ever. And Tristan has to fight his own urge to protect her, to be near her no matter the consequences….



And I also bought:



Love is Darkness (Valerie Dearborn, #1)

Love is Darkness (Valerie Dearborn #1)
by Caroline Hanson
Kindle Edition, 1st Edition, 323 pages
Published: August 27th 2011
Publisher: Host of the Hills

Valerie Dearborn wants a cotton candy life, but it’s more like a puffer fish: pointy, unusual, and—if not prepared exactly right—deadly.

In London for graduate school, Val knows she's finally free. Her father and ex-almost-boyfriend are back in California and she's out of the Vampire hunting biz for good. Or is she?

She draws the attention of Lucas, a 1600 year old Vampire, and King to his kind. He’s also wicked hot. As golden as Lucifer, and just as tempting, he makes Valerie an offer she can't refuse— help him find out if the Others (Empaths, Fey and Werewolves) still exist or he'll stop protecting those she loves.

Lucas tells her that Empaths were a Vampire’s biggest weakness before going extinct hundreds of years ago. While the Fey or a Werewolf might kill a Vampire, an Empath could enslave them, seducing or harming with emotions at will. The one detail he leaves out? Valerie is an Empath.

And after 1600 years of an emotionless existence, Lucas wants Valerie like a recovering alcoholic wants a wine cooler.

Can she keep those she loves alive, stop Lucas from munching on her, survive a fanged revolution and still find a way to have that boring, normal life she’s always wanted? Probably not, but boy is she gonna try!

What's new on your shelf? Please share, I love to read!

BOOK BLOGGER HOP

This is a meme on Friday's hosted by Crazy for Books! Book Blogger Hop - July 27 - August 2, place to connect book bloggers and readers every week!


                              Book Blogger Hop

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

What is one thing that your blog readers probably do not know about you?

        MY ANSWER:
I wear many hats: I work from home transcribing various audio. I work part-time as a teacher in a preschool/daycare, and finally I'm working on my first novel. Oh, did I mention that I'm married with five children?! Yep, that's what you probably didn't know :)

Come on, tell me something I don't know about you ... I love comments!



TGIF

TGIF is a fun meme hosted by Ginger of GReads! Every week is an awesome new question, here's this weeks:


This Friday's Question:

Christmas in July: If Santa were to come down your chimney in the middle of summer, which books would you want him to leave for you under the tree?

MY ANSWER:

My first thought was, I wouldn't want books. I would prefer Giftcards from places I can buy books. Only because I have a problem with buying lots of books and my mood picks what book I'm going to read next.

Otherwise, I would want Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout and Inescapable by Amy A. Bartol.
Obsidian (Lux, #1)Inescapable (The Premonition, #1)


So what's your answer? I love reading comments!

STILL ON MY MIND: A DEEP DARK SECRET


'Still on my Mind' is a meme inspired by Haley at YA-Aholic
Every Thursday you will feature a book that you read months or even YEARS ago that was so good (or so scary/unique/funny..etc) that it is 'Still on my (your) Mind!'



Please include in your post:

1. The summary of the book (off of goodreads or amazon or whatever!)
2. Make sure you tell us why it is still on your mind, was it super amazing? Super Unique? Super Scary?


A Deep Dark SecretA Deep Dark Secret 
by Kimberla Lawson Roby                                      
Hardcover, 192 pages
Published: September 29, 2009 
Publisher: William Morrow & Company

*image and Synopsis via Goodreads*


On the outside, twelve-year-old Jillian Maxwell is the perfect child. She's helpful with chores around the house, gets straight As in school, has plans for college, and stays out of trouble. She seems to have everything a girl could want: a big, beautiful new home, an adoring little sister, a mother who cares about her, and an attentive stepfather.

But inside, Jillian harbors a terrible secret.

Too frightened to tell, convinced that her friends and loved ones, especially her mother, won't understand—and worse, will blame her—Jillian endures her pain in silence, believing that things will get better. However, as time passes and her dilemma intensifies, the bright, hardworking girl becomes sullen and disinterested in her studies. Then, just when it seems she's on the verge of losing everything, Jillian discovers she has more strength than she ever imagined…and the power to change her fate.

With sensitivity and grace, Kimberla Lawson Roby addresses a very real and serious issue, while delivering the inspiring tale of one family's mission to shed light into the darkest corner of their lives.


MY THOUGHTS:
This story will always be on my mind. Even though this is a work of fiction, I'm sure that this is something that happens everyday in the lives of some children everywhere in the world. Kimberla Lawson Roby did a very good job of writing this sensitive topic.




GET ME OFF THE SHELF!


Get Me Off The Shelf! is inspired by *From the Review Pile from*Stepping Out of the Page*hosted by Stephanie. This will be a weekly meme on Thursdays.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you own, but just haven't got around to reading yet. It could be a book you bought yesterday or years ago. Maybe you even have a few books on your eReader just waiting to be swiped to open the pages.


1. Give a synopsis of the book with image.
2. Tell us why you haven't read the book yet, including when you got the book (if you remember).
3. Link the post in the linky below.
4. Visit other blogs and post!

This week's 'Get Me Off the Shelf' book is on my Kindle:
A Stolen Life
   a memoir

By Jaycee Dugard
Hardcover
Pages: 273
Published: July 12, 2011
Publisher: Simon & Schuster


A Stolen Life 

Synopsis via Goodreads:


In the summer of 1991 I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother who loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen.
For eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse.

For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation.

On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I don’t think of myself as a victim. I survived.

A Stolen Life is my story—in my own words, in my own way, exactly as I remember it.


MY THOUGHTS:
This is not one of the genres that I usually buy or read. I remembered all the news that the media was giving about her and I really felt so bad for her parent's loss (I was about 20 years old at that time). And then when I heard she was found(18 years later) and the story behind it interest me. 


So a year ago when this memoir came out I thought, yes I'm going to buy and read this miraculous story of this one girl's kidnapping, what she went through with her kidnappers, and her rescue.


Well a year later it is still on my bookshelf. I just can't seem to open this memoir and read it. I'm not sure if it's because I know this will be an emotional read for me. Maybe one day I'll get up the courage to.


Like I always say ... I'll get to it one day ... maybe.

So share what's you need to 'Get off your shelf', or floor, or box . . . I love comments! And if you don't, I'll stalk you :)

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY




This meme Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by *Breaking the Spine* "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
I'm anticipating the following upcoming books!!!

Touching Smoke(Touch Series #1) 
by Airicka Phoenix
Touching Smoke (Touch Series, #1)
Paperback, 320 pages
Expected Publication: July 31, 2012
Publisher: ?

“What am I?”

“Mine… always!”

This summer… their love will annihilate the world!

For sixteen-year-old FALLON BRAEDEN, being haunted was just another day in the life of a gypsy, like being on the run had always been a closely guarded secret her mother would have happily taken to the grave… if her past hadn’t caught with them.

But when Fallon is stalked by fire-throwing demons, nearly killed by rebel mutants and finds a soul mate she can never have, even her normally unusual life is thrown into a tangled web of love, lies and betrayal.

As worlds collide, secrets unfold and blood is spilt, Fallon comes to several unsettling revelations: she’s not entirely human, her creator has a bounty on her head and the only one who can save her is the one person she has to keep at arm’s length or risk destroying the world for.


MY THOUGHTS:
Lots of conflict with twists and turns, seems like this book has it all. I love it!!! And always those forbidden love interests get me every time.


Pushing the Limits

by Katie McGarry
Hardcover, 384 pages
Expected publication: July 31st 2012
Publisher: Harlequin Teen

"I won't tell anyone, Echo. I promise." Noah tucked a curl behind my ear. It had been so long since someone touched me like he did. Why did it have to be Noah Hutchins? His dark brown eyes shifted to my covered arms. "You didn't do that-did you? It was done to you?" No one ever asked that question. They stared. They whispered. They laughed. But they never asked.
So wrong for each other...and yet so right.

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.

"An edgy romance that pulls you in and never lets go. I was hooked!"-Gena Showalter, New York Times bestselling author of the Intertwined series.



MY THOUGHTS:
I'm already liking Noah just from the synopsis. Loving myself some bad boy, who you can't help but fall for. Six more days ... six more days...

Share your WoW! I love comments and if you don't, I'll stalk you
:P

Thanks for reading <3

TUESDAY TEASERS




Teaser Tuesday is a meme hosted by MizB
of *Should Be Reading*

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:



1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away. You don't want to ruin the book for others)
4. Share the title & amp, author too, so that other Tuesday Teaser participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teaser.

I know, I know, I know, I still haven't finished Predestined. I swear this book is good. No lie. I've had other obligations (I can't believe I'm saying this) the past couple of days that is more important than my reading. I only have a little more ways to go, and then I'm finished. So without further ado, here's the book from last week, but with a different teaser.

Predestined by Abbi Glines
Kindle Edition
Published March 29th 2012
Predestined (Existence Trilogy, #2)                                                 
You would think after helping save her boyfriend from an eternity in Hell that things would go back to normal. Well, as normal as life can be when you can see souls and your boyfriend is Death. But for Pagan Moore, things are just getting weirder.

The high school quarterback and reigning heartthrob, Leif Montgomery, is missing. While the town is in a frenzy of worry, Pagan is a nervous wreck for other reasons. Apparently good ‘ol Leif isn’t your average teenage boy. He isn’t even human. According to Death, Leif doesn’t have a soul. The quarterback may have skipped town but he’s still showing up in Pagan’s dreams... uninvited.

Dank has known from the beginning Leif wasn’t human. But he hadn’t worried about a simple soulless creature. Now, he realizes he made a grave mistake. Pagan’s soul has been marked since birth as a restitution, to a spirit so dark not even Death walks near it. Dank knows saving Pagan’s soul won’t be easy but Pagan is his. And he’s already proven he’ll defy Heaven to keep her. If Hell wants a piece of him too, then bring it on.



Here's my teasers! :
"I didn't take his soul Pagan, my father did."


"He makes decisions that please him and he overindulges in anyting pleausrable and corrupts enjoyable pursuits, making things that should be good and satisfying into depraved behaviors."

Kindle Edition, Location 3472, 75%


I love comments! Please share your teasers . . .

CRAZY ABOUT COVERS!


My meme, Crazy about Covers, was inspired by The Bookworms 'Cover Crazy'.

Each week I will reveal a book(s) that I put on my TBR List just because I was Craazzy about the Cover or Title! It can be creepy, beautiful, or a title that was odd or funny . I  know that a lot of book lovers may have already seen or heard about some of these books. But I'm just giving my opinions on books that I have come across. Hope you join in!!!
My cover pick(s) this week is:
 Exiled (The Never Chronicles #1)

Exiled (The Never Chronicles #1)
by J.R. Wagner Paperback, 288 pages
Published: June 5, 2012 
Publisher: Live Oak Book Group
*Synopsis via Goodreads*


James has never known an ordinary life. As long as he can remember, he and his family have been on the run—moving from place to place, never settling down, never growing roots. Now, just when he’s on the brink of manhood, the very thing his family has been trying to prevent tears him from all he has ever known and thrusts him into a place where he is powerless and alone.
Bent on finding a way back, James must brave a place reserved for the worst of his kind. He quickly learns that the land itself poses a greater threat than its inhabitants and if he is to have any chance of returning, he must work with the very people he’s been raised to fear.

James has known magic since just after he was born. As a sorcerer, his skills are exceptional yet when he wakes in The Never, his abilities are gone. Armed with nothing but determination and the will to survive, he braves a land wrought with dangers, mysteries and temptations meant to ensnare both body and mind and prevent escape forever.


I never read this book,but when I came across it on Goodreads, the first thing I thought was: this cover is creepy! The dark cover can only mean something deadly or evil lurks.

So tell me, did you pick some books this week that was solely based on it's cover or title,whether pretty or scary?

Please share, I love comments!

FOREVER MAN TOUR STOP: Book Excerpt

   
forevermanbanner6




book excerpt 
Hi! I'm so excited today that I have the pleasure of promoting Author January Bain's, Forever Man. A paranormal romance, published by Champagne Books. This tour runs from July 14th to August 14th.





About the Author
PhotobucketJanuary Bain hails from Ashern, Manitoba, Canada. Married to the love of her life, her husband Don, she has combined her love of romance with her interest in the paranormal and vampires to produce the FOREVER SERIES of books. She teaches English and Computer courses during the day, and writes at night and in very spare moment she has. She hopes to touch your heart with this first book in the series, Forever Man and would very much enjoy hearing from her readers. www.januarybain.ca







                                                      Synopsis                

Photobucket





What if you had been given the gift of healing and could save those you loved? And furthermore, discovered you could save the one you love from a vampire’s kiss. There is a catch; of course, the cost of such a healing could mean your own death…
Ellie Hightower is discovering such gifts in the novel, Forever Man by January Bain. She is telepathic, young and bright and has been running from these new found gifts all the way to Nome, Alaska where she encounters the man of her dreams, Mike Stone and an ancient evil force out to take him away from her. Will having goodness and light on her side be enough to save them from Katrianna, a newly resurrected vampire that looks to enslave Mike in her nefarious web?
To find out the truth you will need to read, Forever Man, the first in the FOREVER SERIES by January Bain.

             BOOK EXCERPT:

While I waited for her to return I looked out the window, admiring the view of snow-peaked mountains when I heard the screeching of brakes and a thud, then realized someone had hit a dog with a half ton truck right in front of the restaurant. The driver, a young woman in obvious distress, jumped out and cradled the animal’s head in her lap. In an instant I turned and rushed for the stairs, taking them two at a time.
As I reached the woman she looked up at me with stark pleading in her eyes. “I didn’t see him! Please, I need help!”
Crouching down beside them, I carefully laid my hands on the whimpering dog. It looked like a husky, probably a sled dog. He or she was still breathing, but it was labored and loud. I could also see blood on its soft white fur. My heart instantly melted and reached out to the poor creature with its pain-filled, whiskey-brown eyes that seemed to beg me to do something. Despite the gut-wrenching plea, I felt helpless, sheer happenstance had brought this poor animal to this end and I had no power to save it from its fate.
Hesitantly, I reached my hands out and laid them on the poor dog’s head and its eyes seemed to tell me that it knew its fate. Tears flowed and the image of the dog blurred. I felt its pain as my own as I closed my eyes in sheer anguish.
Please God, let this beautiful creature be okay. Suddenly, something came alive inside me like a dam bursting its banks, and a great tidal wave of energy flowed through me from my very core. It was so strong it made me shake and my legs, cramping in the crouch, almost gave way.
A surge of pure power seemed to drive through my hands into the dog as I concentrated my thoughts on it and then all I could see and feel was hot, white light surrounding me for a few brief incredibly thrilling seconds. The light blinded me, its power as strong as the noonday sun. A sense of pure aliveness electrified me, as if I was at the pinnacle of my strength and could rise up and fill the world with goodness and healing. Then, just as suddenly, the floodgates in my mind closed and the white hot energy retreated back into my hands that began to shake violently with the excess energy.
The sensation left as abruptly as it had come and I fell back exhausted from the effort. The dog whimpered, shook itself and sat up. It looked at the two of us as if nothing had happened, its brown eyes shining and its tail wagging as if it didn’t even remember the last few minutes of its life.
The woman, her eyes huge in her round face, looked at me with complete wonder. “How could this be? One minute I thought it was dying, then you came along and now it’s up and fine? It doesn’t make any sense.” The woman shook her head, unwilling to believe her own eyes.
I knew exactly what she meant. Under the sense of complete exhaustion I was now aware of lurked the feeling that the world had slid sideways and then realigned itself in a new configuration.
Standing up, I felt immediately light-headed and woozy and stumbled forward from severe vertigo, catching myself from falling just in time.
“I don’t know—I guess it wasn’t—as hurt as you thought—it must have just been stunned.” I tried to put a sensible spin on recent events, my tongue feeling wooden and clumsy in my mouth. My slurred words made me sound drunk or slow I realized from a muddled distance, my voice echoing in my head.
“But didn’t you see the bright light just before the dog got up?” The woman was not to be deterred from her new sense of wonder.
I knew I had to get away, but an overwhelming sense of fatigue was slowing down my reaction time and was it was like being forced to move in deep, heavy water.
“Who are you?” The woman asked, her tone blunted by suspicion now.

WHO IS FIK(TISH)UHS?

Profile Picture 3
Hi, I'm Sherri. . . and just to be clear I'm not [Fikt]shun, but I love her blog.

I love to read fiction, so writing reviews of books for a hobby is just an added pleasure to my list of things to do. I just can't read a good book without sharing what I've read. When I'm not reading, I'm writing.

By the way, if you like reading on the naughty or romantic side, visit my new blog FIK(TISH)UHS Pleasures.
