A Lot Like Love by Julie James
Release Date: March 1, 2011
Publisher: Berkley
Goodreads | Amazon


As the daughter of a billionaire and the owner of the city’s top wine store, Jordan Rhodes is invited to the most exclusive parties in Chicago. But there’s only one party the FBI wants to crash: the charity fundraiser of a famous restaurateur, who also happens to launder money for the mob. In exchange for her brother’s release from prison, Jordan is going to be there—with a date supplied by the Bureau.


As the top undercover agent in Chicago, Nick McCall has one rule: never get personal. This “date” with Jordan Rhodes is merely an assignment—one they’re both determined to pull off even if they can’t be together for five minutes before the sarcasm and sparks begin to fly. But when Nick’s investigation is compromised, he and Jordan have no choice but to pretend they’re a couple, and what starts out as a simple assignment begins to feel a lot like something more. . .

I really enjoyed this. After reading the excerpt a year ago I was afraid that it wouldn't live up to what I anticipated, but it did.

By The Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead by Julie Anne Peters
Release Date: January 5, 2010
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH
Goodreads | Amazon

Daelyn’s been the victim of bullying throughout her life and now she’s simply counting down the days until she can commit her final act on Earth. It’s destiny that she finds a Web site to help her in her quest. She has the motive, the means, and the determination. Then she meets this boy, Santana, who makes her examine her choice of death over life. But is he too late to save her? And is she too damaged to save him?

I've wanted to read this for a while, but just kept forgetting to buy it.

The Haunted by Jessica Verday
Release Date: September 2, 2010
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's
Series: The Hollow
Goodreads | Amazon

An impossible truth. An impossible love.

After a summer spent reclaiming her sanity and trying to forget the boy she fell in love with—the boy who must not exist, cannot exist, because she knows that he is dead—Abbey returns to Sleepy Hollow, ready to leave the ghosts of her past behind. She throws herself into her schoolwork, her perfume-making, and her friendship with Ben, her cute and funny lab partner, who just might be her ticket to getting over Caspian once and for all.

But Abbey can never get over Caspian, and Caspian has no choice but to return to her side, for Caspian is a Shade, and Abbey is his destiny. They are tied not only to each other, but also to the town of Sleepy Hollow, and to the famous legend that binds their fates—a legend whose dark truths they are only beginning to guess....

I've read the The Hollow and there are a lot of questions that I'm hoping are answered in this book. I'm a hardcover addict, which made it very hard not to buy it, but of course paperbacks are cheaper.

The Lost Saint by Bree Despain
Release Date: December 28, 2010
Publisher: Egmont USA
Series: The Dark Divine
Goodreads | Amazon

Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She was infected with the werewolf curse while trying to save him, and lost her beloved brother in the process. When Grace receives a haunting phone call from Jude, she knows what she must do. She must become a Hound of Heaven.

Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot—a newcomer to town who promises her that he can help her be a hero. But as the two grow closer, the wolf grows in Grace, and her relationship with Daniel is put in danger—in more ways than one.

Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace begins to give into the wolf inside of her—not realizing that an enemy has returned and a deadly trap is about to be sprung.

Looking forward to finding out how the story continues.

A Stand You’ll Flip For

At Home or On the Go
Use your tablet anywhere with the stand that transforms from small and portable to safe and supportive at the push of a button. Holds your tablet in either landscape or portrait view.

Small but Sturdy
This compact stand is as minimal as it is strong. Durable material provides a firm base for your device that won’t weigh down your bag or backpack.

No need to question my sanity, I know this is not a book, but one of the reasons I bought it was for the comfort of reading eBooks or PDFs on my tablet handsfree. I also use it to watch movies/TV shows, surf the web and type one-handed. It's a handy accessory.
