FRIDAY FINDS



Friday FindsFRIDAY FINDS… hosted by I Should Be Reading, is where you share the book titles you discovered or heard about during the past week. These can be books you were told about, books you discovered while browsing blogs/bookstores online, or books that you actually purchased. MOST of the books MizB shares in her Friday Finds are titles that she discovered somewhere online — not actually books she’s purchased.

Here on FikTishUhs Reviews, I will share what I've discovered while browsing online and on my Kindle and added to my very loong TBR list



My finds this week:
              Magisterium              Skinny

Magisterium
by Jeff Hirsch
Hardcover, 310 pages 
Expected Publication: October 1, 2012

On one side of the Rift is a technological paradise without famine or want. On the other side is a mystery.

Sixteen-year-old Glenn Morgan has lived next to the Rift her entire life and has no idea of what might be on the other side of it. Glenn's only friend, Kevin, insists the fence holds back a world of monsters and witchcraft, but magic isn't for Glenn. She has enough problems with reality: Glenn's mother disappeared when she was six, and soon after, she lost her scientist father to his all-consuming work on the mysterious Project. Glenn buries herself in her studies and dreams about the day she can escape. But when her father's work leads to his arrest, he gives Glenn a simple metal bracelet that will send Glenn and Kevin on the run---with only one place to go.


Skinny
by Donna Cooner
Hardcover, 272 pages
Expected Publication: October 1, 2012 

Find your voice.

Hopeless. Freak. Elephant. Pitiful. These are the words of Skinny, the vicious voice that lives inside fifteen-year-old Ever Davies’s head. Skinny tells Ever all the dark thoughts her classmates have about her. Ever knows she weighs over three hundred pounds, knows she’ll probably never be loved, and Skinny makes sure she never forgets it.

But there is another voice: Ever’s singing voice, which is beautiful but has been silenced by Skinny. Partly in the hopes of trying out for the school musical—and partly to try and save her own life—Ever decides to undergo a risky surgery that may help her lose weight and start over.

With the support of her best friend, Ever begins the uphill battle toward change. But demons, she finds, are not so easy to shake, not even as she sheds pounds. Because Skinny is still around. And Ever will have to confront that voice before she can truly find her own.



my thoughts  Okay, so both of these sound crazy don't they?! What an imagination these authors have. That book cover of Magisterium is creepy as heck!


I love comments!  So what did you find this week?!

Conjure (The Hoodoo Apprentice, #1)



Synopsis
Be careful what you search for...

Emma Guthrie expects this summer to be like any other in the South Carolina Lowcountry--hot and steamy with plenty of beach time alongside her best friend and secret crush, Cooper Beaumont, and Emma’s ever-present twin brother, Jack. But then a mysterious eighteenth-century message in a bottle surfaces, revealing a hidden pirate bounty. Lured by the adventure, the trio discovers the treasure and unwittingly unleashes an ancient Gullah curse that attacks Jack with the wicked flesh-eating Creep and promises to steal Cooper’s soul on his approaching sixteenth birthday.

When a strange girl appears, bent on revenge; demon dogs become a threat; and Jack turns into a walking skeleton; Emma has no choice but to learn hoodoo magic to undo the hex, all before summer—and her friends--are lost forever.

This suspenseful debut follows a group of teenage misfits in their delicious quest for revenge on those who have wronged them at their high school. When a mysterious note appears in Charlotte’s mailbox inviting her to join the League of Strays, she’s hopeful it will lead to making friends. What she discovers is a motley crew of loners and an alluring, manipulative ringleader named Kade. Kade convinces the group that they need one another both for friendship and to get back at the classmates and teachers who have betrayed them. But Kade has a bigger agenda. In addition to vandalizing their school and causing fights between other students, Kade’s real intention is a dangerous plot that will threaten lives and force Charlotte to choose between her loyalty to the League and her own conscience.

MY THOUGHTS:


I just can't wait to read these books! Both of the covers are awesome too.

Sloane and Maggie have never met. Sloane is a straight-A student with a big and loving family. Maggie lives a glamorously independent life as an up-and-coming actress in New York. The two girls couldn’t be more different—except for one thing. They share a secret that they can’t tell a soul. At night, they dream that they’re each other.

The deeper they’re pulled into the promise of their own lives, the more their worlds begin to blur dangerously together. Before long, Sloane and Maggie can no longer tell which life is real and which is just a dream. They realize that eventually they will have to choose one life to wake up to, or risk spiraling into insanity. But that means giving up one world, one love, and one self, forever.

Jodi Marshall isn’t sure how she went from normal teenager to walking disaster. One minute she’s in her junior year of high school, spending time with her amazing boyfriend and her best friend. The next she’s being stalked by some guy no one seems to know.

After the stranger, Alex, reveals himself, Jodi learns he’s not a normal teenager and neither is she. With a kiss that kills and a touch that brings the dead back to life, Jodi discovers she’s part of a branch of necromancers born under the 13th sign of the zodiac, Ophiuchus. A branch of necromancers that are descendents of Medusa. A branch of necromancers with poisoned blood writhing in their veins.

Jodi’s deadly to the living and even more deadly to the deceased. She has to leave her old, normal life behind before she hurts the people she loves. As if that isn’t difficult enough, Jodi discovers she’s the chosen one who has to save the rest of her kind from perishing at the hands of Hades. If she can’t figure out how to control her power, history will repeat itself, and her race will become extinct.

           MY THOUGHTS:

What awesome covers, you think?  Hmm, what would I want to do if I could dream my way into another life? No kissing without killing someone ... now that would be hard to deal with ...



Thanks for reading <3

BOOK EXCERPT

Liberty andGregory – First Kiss

When the twelfth boxwas packed, she followed him up the steps and closed the doors behind her. Thenight was so quiet she listened to the sound of the oak leaves on the moonlitloading dock while he hefted the last box into the back of the van. He turnedto her, looked down at her happy face, and brushed tousled strands ofhoney-colored hair from her eyes. 


“Thank you,” Libertywhispered and hesitantly raised her arms and touched his back. Her hands slidover stiff jumpsuit fabric, feeling the strong shape of him. He still smelledof that woodsy cologne. Buoyed after their successful adventure, with gentlepressure she pulled him closer and he responded by pressing her into a warmhug. She leaned against him, enjoying the closeness. He used his fingers toraise her chin and she watched his lips come down to meet hers. She couldn’tpush him away. Or talk. Or close her eyes. 


The kiss, soft,powerful, and protective, was unlike any she’d ever experienced. She feltexcited and so close to him. 


His lips movedhungrily, then pulled back. “Oh Liberty, This evening has taken more than youcan imagine. I cannot stay much longer.” 


“What are yousaying? We need to take the books back to the library.” She placed her hands onthe sides of his head and again kissed him deeply. 


They jumped apart atthe sound of footfalls. Gregory looked over her shoulder and saw three wolvesemerge from the bushes edging the parking lot. He pushed Liberty away from himand gruffly yelled, “Get in the van and drive. Now!” 


“Come with me!” 


“No. Go! Don’targue.” He slammed the back door closed. 


As she ran to theopen driver’s door and pulled herself in, she heard wind whipping leaves into afrenzy followed by rapid crunching like a meat grinder devouring bone andgristle. She shuddered and turned the key in the ignition. The old van coughed.On the third try it sputtered to life. 


She pushed hard onthe gas pedal and on the third try the van heaved forward with its book-heavyload. She looked into the rearview mirror. Three dark dog-shaped beasts withshining eyes and drooling jaws flanked the back of the parking lot. 


Again Gregoryyelled, “Go home!” 


Wolves. It had to bethe werewolves. She’d left Gregory to the werewolves. 


As she drove fromthe parking lot she glanced frantically into the rearview mirror one more time.She saw the back end of a large hairy grey and white dog facing the threesnarling fiends.

This is what I've stacked on my shelves this week:

Pure (Pure #1)
by Julianna Baggott
Kindle Edition, 431 pages
Published: February 8, 2012 

Publisher: Grand Central Publishing


   Pure (Pure, #1)
SYNOPSIS:
We know you are here, our brothers and sisters . . .
Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about life during the Before. In her sleeping cabinet behind the rubble of an old barbershop where she lives with her grandfather, she thinks about what is lost-how the world went from amusement parks, movie theaters, birthday parties, fathers and mothers . . . to ash and dust, scars, permanent burns, and fused, damaged bodies. And now, at an age when everyone is required to turn themselves over to the militia to either be trained as a soldier or, if they are too damaged and weak, to be used as live targets, Pressia can no longer pretend to be small. Pressia is on the run.

Burn a Pure and Breathe the Ash . . .
There are those who escaped the apocalypse unmarked. Pures. They are tucked safely inside the Dome that protects their healthy, superior bodies. Yet Partridge, whose father is one of the most influential men in the Dome, feels isolated and lonely. Different. He thinks about loss-maybe just because his family is broken; his father is emotionally distant; his brother killed himself; and his mother never made it inside their shelter. Or maybe it's his claustrophobia: his feeling that this Dome has become a swaddling of intensely rigid order. So when a slipped phrase suggests his mother might still be alive, Partridge risks his life to leave the Dome to find her.

When Pressia meets Partridge, their worlds shatter all over again.

Cross My Heart
by Katie Klein
Kindle Edition, 225 pages
Published March 15th 2011




Cross My Heart

SYNOPSIS:
True love can blossom in unexpected places. This is Jaden pretending not to notice. . . .

Jaden McEntyre and Parker Whalen are a wrong fit from the start. Jaden is driven and focused, Harvard Med School within reach. Parker has a past-a reputation-and the rumors about his mysterious habits abound. So there's no reason why, when they're assigned to work together on a project in English, they should discover they have anything in common, or even like each other, and they definitely shouldn't be falling in love.

As they bond over Edith Wharton's tragic novella, Ethan Frome, the "bad boy" vibe Parker plays begins to dissipate. Soon, Jaden finds herself shedding her own "good girl" image: sneaking around to be with him, confiding in him, and ultimately falling hard for this leather-wearing, motorcycle-driving loner who plays into the rebel stereotype.

Still, Jaden can't shake the feeling that there's more to Parker than he's letting on. He's hiding something from her, and discovering the truth means reconciling the Parker she's grown to love with the person he really is. Because it's possible that his life inside the classroom-everything Jaden knows-is one, massive lie.




my thoughtsI was in that "mushy love story with some family drama" mood these past few days. So I bought these two novels. They both seems like page-turners.

So what's new on your shelf? I love to add to my TBR pile!

   Veined, # 1                       Pretty Girls Don't Cry



VEINED #1
by Anyta Sunday
Kindle, 
Published: August 26, 2011

It could be worse for Sylva Lark. She could be dead. A coma was nothing to that. Or her family moving across country for the treatment, leaving her with a big blue mark on her back.
She can handle it. 
Mostly. 
Except the mark glows and tingles, especially whenever transition helper Atticus Plot (Attic) is close by. She suspects he’s hiding something, and when she stumbles across a torn body bearing the same spiral marking as her own, that suspicion is confirmed. 
After a few shaves with death, the truth finally comes out and the battles begin. 
But not all her fights are external; her biggest one is the decision she has to make between doing the right thing for world and giving up her beloved family for good.


PRETTY GIRLS DON'T CRY
by
Kindle, 150 pages
Published: June 30, 2012 

Afternoon radio show host Nora Scott has always considered herself an ugly duckling, and the prosthetic foot she wears on her right leg isn't helping.


When she's on the air, as a faceless voice, she's Eugene, Oregon's favorite personality. Off the air, she's ... not so great, hiding her face and failing to connect with a guy for more than one night.


Now she's being pursued by two men, a work friend who wants to be more than friends, and the guy she loved when she was fourteen, before the accident.


Nora must figure out what she really wants, as well as how much she can forgive. 



my thoughts  Veined. . . gave me the goose bumps when I read the beginning of the synopsis, but as I kept reading I thought, wow this sounds awesome. The cover is nice in a creepy way.

Big Girls, Don't Cry. . . This one seems more like an adult read, but I guess it could be for the older end of YA. Well I just love, love triangles! So that's what caught my eye. Also a bit of mystery seems to be there too.
I love comments!  So what did you find this week?!

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 book:

Velveteen (Velveteen #1)
by Daniel Marks
Hardcover, 464 pages
Expected publication: October 9, 2012 
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Velveteen (Velveteen, #1)

Synopsis:
Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that’s not the problem.

The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it’s not a fiery inferno, it’s certainly no heaven. It’s gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn’t leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what’s really on her mind.

Bonesaw.

Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she’s figured out just how to do it. She’ll haunt him for the rest of his days.

It’ll be brutal... and awesome.

But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen’s obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she’s willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.

Velveteen can’t help herself when it comes to breaking rules... or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.



           MY THOUGHTS:


Sounds kind of dark and creepy, but with a bit of romance in it, it's just up my alley! Don't you like the cover?!  I can't wait . . .

Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game.

But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look.

Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life.

As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares.

His life depends on it.

BOOK TOUR: SAVAGE BOOK EXCERPT



book tour stopHi! Today I'm promoting an awesome paranormal romance by  Author Willow Rose's book Savage (Daughters of the Jaguar #1), published on June 14, 2012. This tour runs from August 24th - September 7th.
Photobucket



About the Author 

PhotobucketWillow Rose writes Paranormal Romance, fantasy and mystery. Originally from Denmark she now lives on Florida’s Space Coast with her husband and two daughters. She is a huge fan of Anne Rice and Isabel Allende. When she is not writing or reading she enjoys to watch the dolphins play in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.


Synopsis                
PhotobucketThe year is 1983. Christian is 22 years old when he leaves his home in Denmark to spend a year in Florida with a very wealthy family and go to med-school. A joyful night out with friends is shattered by an encounter with a savage predator that changes his life forever. Soon he faces challenges he had never expected. A supernatural gift he has no idea how to embrace. A haunting family in the house next door. A spirit-filled girl who seems to carry all the answers. An ancient secret hidden in the swamps of Florida. One life never the same. One love that becomes an obsession. Two destinies that will be forever entangled.

Savage is a paranormal romance with some language, violence, and sexual situations recommended for ages sixteen and up. It is the first in a family saga that covers three decades of the character's lives. The sequel is expected to be published in September 2012.


BOOK EXCERPT:
I removed my clothes and followed her into the cold water that sprang from the center of the earth in a spring somewhere further north and therefore had the same temperature all year around. “Are there any animals in this water?” I asked as she carefully took me by the hand and led me in. “There might be manatees,” she said with a shrug. “What about alligators?" I asked and turned as I thought I heard something move behind me in the water. “Someone told me that there are alligators in all waterholes in Florida.” She laughed. “There might be, but we rarely see them. Besides. It just makes it that more exciting, right?” She pulled my hand and drew me close to her. Our bodies felt warm against each other, her skin was soft, and touching it made me forget about animals in the water and the sounds of nature. I even forgot about my concerns as to hurting her and disappointing her parents. All I could think about was her and me, here right now in this water that was caressing our bodies. I kissed her again and held her naked body close to mine while allowing the passion to rise in me. Suddenly she pulled away from me. “Stop,” she whispered urgently. I looked at her and saw that the expression on her face had suddenly changed. “What’s wrong?” I asked sensing that my voice was shaking slightly. If it was out of fear or caused by the arousal I didn’t know. “I thought I heard something.” “Like what?” She shook her head while her expression cleared. She smiled. “It was probably nothing.”

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.
