Hey loyal followers! Just finished the SECOND galley of the 2012 year, and I'm just letting you know it is a great one. (i'm thinking along the lines of a party for celebrating... )
Anyways, Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers is such an interesting book. It involves the Black Plague time in Europe and a hint of steamy romance forbidden by Ismae's religion. Ismae is the main character of the story that has had a incredibly hard life until she comes to a convent to worship the saint of Death... Saint Mortain.
I must admit, the book is a little long, but it is 100% worth your attention. I couldn't put it down and the second book- voiced by Sybella (Ismae's best friend)- is coming out in 2013. I will reiterate: this book is un put downable and I say don't put it down.
P.S. Sorry new outline for the blogs.
P.P.S. I liked the old cover better. On to book two of my GIANT stack!
P.P.P.S. I forgot one thing...
This book is great if you liked reading.........
Hemlock (which I will be reviewing soon)
Wrecked (this one too...)

I just read Everneath by Brodi Ashton. I really like this book because it gives the character's story through flashbacks and the story itself. All in all it's a great book, and personally I cannot wait until the next book in the series to come out. Another thing, I really like the author's acknowledgments
because they are humorous and you can tell that the author really enjoys writing and she likes her friends.
In Everneath, Nikki Bennett wakes up not quite knowing what's going on and she is with a boy she doesn't quite know, let alone love. Although the feeders' memories become erased after the Feeding, Nikki's didn't and she has a chance to return home one last time to say goodbye to those she loves and cares about and to set things straight. The only problem is that she falls for her ex-boyfriend again and now she only has a few months left before she has to leave. Forever.
By the end of the book, I was questioning everybody and I was rooting for the underdog. By the end, I was sobbing, and I was left craving more.
