You heard right, the second book in the amazing Chemical Garden Trilogy hasn't even been printed yet but Lauren DeStefano is giving away a copy as well as a signed copy of Wither!
I did my part to enter, so make sure you go to her site and enter yourself. Good Luck!

Cute cover right? There are some great books with simple red covers (Immortal Beloved, The Eternal Ones) and this one is no exception. It's about incest, which at first it's like whoa why would I want to read that? It is actually really good though, really really good. So read it! It's released June 28th.

Here is my list that I can remember off hand reading since the last post. I think it's missing a few but I lost the list where I keep track. Oops. I will eventually find it and update it. Sadly my Nook broke a few weeks ago, thus some of the crappy titles listed (I was stuck with a 'library' here in the Bahama's) Allegedly a library. It was suffering but thankfully my grandma back in the states shipped me another e-reader which I just got so I can begin good reads again. <3 <3 <3 Aren't grandma's the greatest???
Pretty little liars 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8
Secret Society Girl 1 - Diana Peterfreud
Maximum Ride 1 - James Patterson
Southern Vampire 1 (Sookie Stackhouse) - Charlaine Harris
Beach Road - James Patterson
My Sister's Keeper - Jodi Picoult
Handle With Care - Jodi Picoult
The Gathering - Kelley Armstrong
Mediator book 1 - Meg Cabot -- The ''''''library'''''' here had this gem!! It was their ONLY YA book. How have I never heard of this series? It was great! Too bad I don't have a way to get the rest of the series.
If you'd like to see where I am in the Bahama's here's my blog I share with my husband. (Lately he does all the writing so I can do more reading of course!)

I haven't been keeping up with book reviews as much as I'd like, because well, if you are reading this for the first time, I am on a sailing trip in the bahamas for 6 - 12 months, but I still want to keep track of what I'm reading in the meantime and keep the site live until I get back, so here are the latest and greatest books. Sadly I cannot download books for my Nook from BN.com out of the country. Gasp right?
Wither - Lauren Destefano - First in Chemical Garden Trilogy. This one I will say was EPIC! It just came out so be sure to get it.
Life As we Knew It 1,2,3 (series) - Susan Beth Pfeffer. This one was so amazing I lent my husband my Nook so he is currently reading it so we can discuss it, he doesn't usually like my books of course,... he will however watch Twilight with me and much to my chargrin is team Jacob. haha
Sleepless - Cyn Balog
Sarah Dessen - The Truth About Forever (boring), Along for the Ride (really good)
Dead Beautiful - Yvonne Woon. This one kinda dragged at the beginning but good plot.
Halo - Alexandra Adronello. Do covers ever speak to you? I know I'm not supposed to 'judge a book by its cover' but sometimes I really can tell and this one of course was as great as the cover was pretty.
Nevermore - Kelly Creagh. Really good!
Stray - Rachel Vincent - Werecats Series 1. This is interesting. It reminds me VERY closely to the Mercy Thompson series, and the cover was pretty cheesy so I was nervous about it, but it was actually good and there's alot in the series so thats a plus.
Peeps - Scott Westerfield
Love You, Hate You, Miss You - Elizabeth Scott
Beautiful - Amy Reed. Wonderful. Reminds me of my favorite, Pretty, Little, Dirty.
Nightshade - Andrea Cremer
River Marked - Patricia Briggs. Mercy Thompson Series Book 6
I may have already got this in a previous blog but, We'll Always Have Summer - Jenny Han Get this, I didn't realize this was a series, so imagine how distraught I was when I started reading The Summer I turned Pretty, AFTER We'll Always Have Summer. Being in the Bahama's also has the disadvantage of less internet time to do my research, but hey, I can hardly complain. Upside is more time to read on the beach!
Sharing Sam - Katherine Applegate
Deadly Little Secret - Laurie Faria Stolarz
Between Here and Forever - Elizabeth Scott
Return to Paradise - Simone Elkeles
Shift - Sequel to Shade, and just as good!
Sixteenth Summer - Michelle Dalton
I was lucky enough to get a gorgeous ARC of Huntress by Melinda Lo which I will be reading soon.

The Luxe - Anna Godbersen - really great series!
The Iron King, The Iron Daughter - Julie Kagawa
