Waiting on Wed: The Death Code by Lindsay Cummings

Waiting on Wed is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
It's something that she does every Wed where we pick a book that hasn't been released yet.

Author: Lindsay Cummings
Expected publication: April 21st 2015 by Greenwillow Books

With short, fast-paced, alternating point-of-view chapters, The Death Code starts several weeks after The Murder Complex ended. Zephyr keeps the secret about Meadow close—that if she dies, The Murder Complex will be destroyed, too. Meadow, desperate to find her brother, father, and little sister, is determined to fearlessly fight to the end, even if it means sacrificing herself and her friends, new and old. The Death Codeintroduces a memorable cast of secondary characters and delivers a vivid and scary thrill ride read.
Why I'm waiting on this?
I just finished reading the first one and loved it!!!!!

Does this sound like something you would enjoy? What did you pick this week?

Book Review: Uninvited by Sophie Jordan




AUTHOR: Sophie Jordan
PUBLISHER: HarperTeen
PAGES: 384
STAND ALONE/SERIES:duology
SOURCE: Bought
OUTLINE:

When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. Her boyfriend ditches her, her parents are scared of her, and she can forget about her bright future at Julliard. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life. Davy wants to trust him; maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.


MY THOUGHTS
I read Firelight back when I first started blogging and as much as everyone seemed to love it I was in the minority who didn't. Then she came out with her NA Titles, the first being Foreplay, and from I can remember about that story I enjoyed it.
Uninvited could have gone either way. I'm of course happy to say that it went down the path of enjoyment. It had my full attention throughout the story. I found the concept of HTS, or Homicidal Tendency Syndrome, as it's called in the book interesting. The protag could either turn hero or villain. I wanted to see how Davy would turn out, how she dealt with this kill gene she apparently had. My one complaint is I'm not sure (or maybe I can't remember) how this gene came about. I wanted to learn more about it. More about this world where killing is in the gene.
Davy is definitely your typically high school girl. Star boyfriend, popular, but needless to say when her test comes back positive for HTS her perfect life is killed. It dies that day. She learns they only way to live in her new world is to be strong and go with her gut instincts.

Keeping you posted: A monthly giveaway in the works and more

  1. I've been thinking about how I can give back to my readers, and I realized I usually do one of the Kindle Deals monthly. I figure that I can do a small giveaway a month with the Kindle Deals post. I'll be making a post later with more detail 
  2. Reverse Thursday- Is a meme I want to try and do here every Thursday where we highlight older books we want or want to read. It's sort of like a WOW in reverse. I'm not sure if there is something out in the bookish community like this, but yea? or no? I'll make a post about it Monday and then maybe actually give it a go on Thursday.
  3. I have one review I need to get posted for Uninvited by Sophie Jordan
  4. I'm almost through reading The Young Elites and I'm enjoying.
  5. I'm not even half way through with The Murder Complex and wow I love it. It's pretty bloody already but good.
  6. I've started a Wordpress Site: A Kindle by Any Other Name and it's dedicated to my kindles and the books on there and the sites used for E-readers like Edelweiss and Netgalley. It's a way for me to keep up with those books because so many times I forget.



Kindle Deal: Vampire Academy and Bloodline Series all $2.99


Okay so usually I don't do a single kindle deal post, but well it's both FULL series from Richelle Meads Vampire Academy and Bloodlines so I'm going to. :)

Vampire Academy

Bloodlines

Follow Friday (number something)


I actually haven't done this feature in quite awhile, but I figure this is a good question to start back on. :)

Your house is burning down and you have time to select three books you own to take with you. What three books?

How about I just take my kindle?
If I had to choose books then.......
This is a no brainer for me.
VAMPIRE ACADEMY, Shadow Kiss, and Last Sacrifice because I feel those are the 3 in the series that tell the story the best.
