Its Monday! What are you Reading? (5)

This is a weekly meme hosted by Shelia at Book Journey. Head on over if you'd like to participate! It is an awesome way to meet new bloggers, and add fabulous books to that ever growing pile, of "to be read" books.

This week I am not too over pack with school reading and assignments soooo I hope to get through a couple books I've been dying to dive right in to.

"My Soul to Take" by Rachel Vincent
"Darkfever" by Karen Marie Moning


"Need" by Carrie Jones

"Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane...but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now. She couldn't be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara's overactive imagination. In fact, he's still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right - not human - in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara."

The Toss Up:

I can never see indefinitely what my second book I want to read this upcoming week is going to be, SO I have decided that I am going to do a "Toss Up" section of this meme. I have two books that I'm craving to read but I cannot decide which one I am going to get too. Therefore, I'll just post my two choices and we'll see next week which one I choose. Now of course comments are always wanted, so if you have a "sway" to one or the other please do tell me! It may help with my hard decision that lies ahead, lol.

"Blue Bloods" by Melissa de la Cruz

"When the Mayflower set sail in 1620, it carried on board the men and women who would shape America: Miles Standish; John Alden; Constance Hopkins. But some among the Pilgrims were not pure of heart; they were not escaping religious persecution. Indeed, they were not even human. They were vampires.The vampires assimilated quickly into the New World. Rising to levels of enormous power, wealth, and influence, they were the celebrated blue bloods of American society." 

"The Blue Bloods vowed that their immortal status would remain a closely guarded secret. And they kept that secret for centuries. But now, in New York City, the secret is seeping out. Schuyler Van Alen is a sophomore at a prestigious private school. She prefers baggy, vintage clothes instead of the Prada and pearls worn by her classmates, and she lives with her reclusive grandmother in a dilapated mansion. Schuyler is a loner...and happy that way. Suddenly, when she turns fifteen, there is a visible mosaic of blue veins on her arm. She starts to crave raw food and she is having flashbacks to ancient times. Then a popular girl from her school is found dead... drained of all her blood. Schuyler doesn't know what to think, but she wants to find out the secrets the Blue Bloods are keeping."

"Bloodfever" by Karen Marie Moning

"In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous. For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them."


  1. I have some of the Blue Bloods books lurking somewhere but not the first one so haven't started on them yet.

  2. I've wanted to read "Bloodfever" for a while now. Looks excellent! Hope you enjoy it.

  3. I've read Need and Blue Bloods, but I have yet to get any of Karen Marie Moning's novels!

    Thanks, and new follower as well!! :D

  4. I'm interested to see what you think of Need! I couldn't really get too far into it as much as I wanted to!

    Lah @ LazyGirl Reads

  5. I've heard that the Darkfever books are fabulous! Although I haven't gotten around to it yet myself....

  6. Thanks for all the comments girls!! :)

    @Natalie - I have just finished "Darkfever" the first in the series, and it was addictively seductive! hahah. I could not put it down, and it is definitely not Young Adult, lol. More of a Paranormal Romance for 19+ lol. I highly recommend giving at least the first book a read.

    @Lah - So far I am about 100 pages in and I am very intrigued. Although I am having a hard time getting into as much as I had wanted, but I am ONLY 100 pages in so we shall see :)

    @Sierra - Thanks for becoming a follower! :) I am liking Need right now, although I am not loving it as of right now, it is still a very mysterious novel. I am so turn around myself I can't predict where Need is going to take me, lol.

    @The Brunette Librarian - "Darkfever" the first in the series was an excellent book! And I am really curious to see where Mac and Jerricho with their whole relationship/usage of one another, soooo I am definitely going to be reading Bloodfever very very soon.

    @Ellie - I have only heard good things about the Blue Bloods series so I am hoping it doesn't disappoint me, lol.
