Hello again! Am I ever grateful that the weekend is here. I know I always say that, but I really mean it this time. I have been having a week, and this vacation is much needed. Last weekend I went to the super fun YA book event, YA Rising Stars at B&N in Glendale, CA. The event was organized by my good friends over at Bridge to Books and I had a great time. Though the event boasted 8 authors, I was controlled and only got a copy of Me, Earl and the Dying Girl signed by Jessie Andrews. I also hit up the library this week and got a few things since they got a bunch of new YA books in. I am on the library wait lists as well for Rapture by JR Ward and The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling. Check out my full haul below. As usual, click on the titles to learn more about these books at their Goodreads pages.

sorry this picture is really dark.


Kiss of Steel by Bec McMaster - You may remember this one from last week. I actually got a copy from NetGalley but then won it from Anna's Book Blog. I like the cover though so I am excited to have a physical copy of this book.


Mothership by Martin Leicht, Isla Neal - Heard good things about this one. Looks cute.
Article 5 by Kristen Simmons - This one came out a while ago and I wanted to read it but never got aroudn to it. Glad my library had a copy.
Team Human by Justine Larbalestier, Sarah Rees Brennan - Another fun looking one I've been meaning to read.
The Ugly Duchess by Eloisa James - Halfway through with this historical romance right now and it's dragging a bit in the middle. Hoping it picks up.


Me, Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews - Signed copy from the YA Rising Stars event. Jesse was super funny and I think this book is going to be entertaining.
North & South DVD - This miniseries was on sale at B&N and I had to get it. Richard Armitage - sigh.

That's what I have for this week. I hope you're all having a fun weekend. I plan on seeing Looper this weekend. Bruce Willis and JGL - how can I resist? :)

Review Copy Wipeout

Ahoy! there and happy Saturday. It's about a billion degrees in Los Angeles right now so I am trying to stay cool. A lot of my friends signed up for Bloggiesta this weekend. I thought about it but I didn't sign up because, well I have a fear of commitment. However, I might do it next time and am hoping to do my own unofficial Bloggiesta and get some things done on the blog this weekend.

One of the things I wanted to do was officially signed up for the Review Copy Wipeout hosted by The Book Monsters. I know, I just said I couldn't commit but this is something I can do and it spans several months, so I have time. It's basically just trying to read as many review copy books as possible before the end of the year. I still have tons of NetGalley books and books I got from ALA that I want to read. Hopefully this will motivate me. Sign ups are now and end on Oct 15. If you wanna join up, just visit the page here

I don't have any set agenda for the challenge but I will post periodic updates. Anyone else have a big review pile to get through? Let's do it together!

Uncovered (33): Soulless

Happy Friday and welcome to another installment of Uncovered. This week's cover is in honor of my book club's selection for September. No doubt you have all probably seen this one. Soulless the first book in Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series. Like a lot of people, I am a huge fan of the covers for this entire series. This one is still my favorite though. There's just something about her posture and the gorgeous purple dress that does it for me. I love the colors on the cover, too, and the foggy London background. Gotta love Alexia's hat in this one, too. Just the right about of steampunk to make it interesting but also totally accessible to non-UF readers. I am a little over halfway through the book at the time of writing this and I gotta say I am loving it.

Have you guys read this series yet? Which book cover from the series is your favorite?

ETA: Thanks to Lee at She Wolf Reads for reminding me that Orbit made a great little video about making the cover to another book in this series, Blameless. Check it out below. It's very cool!

Before I Go To Sleep - Review

Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson
Publication date: 14 June 2011 by Harper
ISBN 10/13: 0062060554 | 9780062060556
Goodreads | Amazon | B&N | Book Depository | Indiebound

Category: Adult Mystery/Thriller
Keywords: Mystery, thriller, suspense, amnesia, memory
Format: Hardcover, paperback, eBook
Source: Library

From Goodreads:

'As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I'm still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me ...' Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love - all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story. Welcome to Christine's life.

Thuy's Review:

You know that disorienting feeling you get sometimes when you take a nap for too long? You wake up a little bleary eyed and confused, wondering where you are or what time it is. But then you recognize your house and remember that you decided to take a nap. Well what if, when you woke up, couldn’t remember where you were or how you got there? And the face when you looked in the mirror wasn’t what you thought you looked like? Scary, right? Well this is what life is like for Christine Lucas, the main character of Before I Go To Sleep. Each night she goes to bed knowing that, when she wakes, she will not remember her life.

The book begins when Christine wakes up in an unfamiliar room next to a man she doesn’t recognize. She goes into the bathroom only to see a face in the mirror that looks twenty years older than how old she believes she is. She has no memories of her husband or her life before that morning and she learns that when she goes to bed, she will lose whatever little progress she has made for the day. Suspicions arise when Christine finds out that her husband hadn’t been telling her the truth. But has he been doing it for spare her the grief or for some other sinister purpose? And can she trust the doctor she’s seeing or does he have his own plans for?

This was a totally gripping story that had me holding my breath from one page to the next. Taut and suspenseful, Watson does a great job of putting us inside Christine’s head. I felt Christine’s frustration, grief, anger and fear as she tries to piece together her life each day. The journal entries really drew me into Christine’s world and I wanted to know about her past just as much as she did.

The journal entries were a little repetitive at times but I could see why it set up that way, since we were seeing things through Christine’s unique perspective. Things take a decidedly creepy turn once Christine realizes that what she’s writing down and what she is being told aren’t adding up. I was trying to read as fast as possible near the end of the book. If I was a nail biter, my nails would have been bitten down to the quick.  The ending has the inevitable twist, though it was one that I hadn’t predicted. Things wrapped up a little too nicely and conveniently at the end, which lessened the believability of it all, but it was still a very exciting and nerve wracking ending.

Before I Go To Sleep makes us ask the question - who are we without our memories? It’s not something I’ve ever wanted to think about before and the answer is frightening. Creepy, intense, and original, Before I Go To Sleep an emotional thriller that you won’t be able to put down. Recommended for fans of the film Memento and dark, psychological thrillers.

Stacked (22)

Hello! I am so, so happy that the weekend is here again. This week was just brutal and I really need these two days to recover. I don't have a ton planned. I am going to a fun YA book signing on Sat and am hoping to see the new Dredd movie. I know it doesn't look great but I cannot resist these types of movies.

I had another low book haul week this week. Just trying to get through my NetGalley books and my ALA ARCs. I did go to the library but I was quite restrained. So you wanna see what I got?

The Siren by Tiffany Reisz - Finally got my hands on this one and OMG, so good. It's definitely not your traditional romance. It's sexy and brutal and very original. I hope to have a review of it once I can gather my thoughts.

Rogue Rider by Larissa Ione - Ahhhhhhh! I love Larissa Ione and the last book in this series was killer. I have no idea what is going to happen in Reseph's book but I cannot wait to find out. (thanks to NetGalley for this one)

Nevermore by Kelly Creagh - Picked this one up at the library. I have a few friends who really liked it and the sequel just came out. There's an Edgar Allan Poe element which intrigues me so I hope this one is good.

See - not too many books this week. I will be going to B&N tomorrow though so no promises on next week. :) What is everyone else up to this weekend? I'd love to hear. And if you have a post on what goodies you got this week, leave a link and I'll stop by. Have a great day!

Uncovered (32): Sacre Bleu

I can't believe it's Friday again already. Yay for the weekend. This week on Uncovered, I have a really beautiful cover for Sacre Bleu by Christopher Moore. I fell in love with this cover the first time I saw it. It's a very stylized painting that calls to mind the French masters of the 19th century, which is what the book is about. I love the female figure and her pose, including how her legs seem to turn into fins or some sort. I think the font is perfect for this style of painting and compliments the theme well. Also love all of the fantastic shades of blue on the cover, ranging from sky to cyan to navy. I admit that I haven't been a huge fan of Moore's covers in the past. They are always sort of generic and flat looking, so it was a really nice surprise to see this was the cover of his new book. 

The lovely cover art on this one is by Aly Fell, a fantastic artist based in the UK. He also did the cover for Discount Armageddon, which I really like as well. If you like this cover and want to see more of Aly's work, head on over to his website (http://www.darkrising.co.uk). There is also a really great interview with Aly over at She Wolf Reads.

That's it for Uncovered this week. Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what you think of this cover in the comments section below.

Hidden Paradise - Alternate Review

Hidden Paradise by Janet Mullany
Publication date: 18 September 2012 by Harlequin
ISBN 10/13: 0373777191 | 9780373777198
Goodreads | Amazon | B&N | Indiebound

Category: Adult Erotica/Romance
Keywords: Erotica, romance, Jane Austen, historical
Format: Paperback, eBook
Source: e-ARC received from Netgalley

Alethea's review: 

If you're a regular reader of the blog, you're probably wondering why we have two reviews for the same book and why we have vastly different opinions of Hidden Paradise. Thuy and I both enjoy romance, whether they are contemporary or historical, vanilla or super-smexy. Luckily, what we can both agree on is that there are lots of different books because there are lots of different readers, and what you enjoy may not always be the same for me--and that's ok!

When I started reading this book, I was immediately reminded of Austenland by Shannon Hale. The characters are play-acting at Georgian splendor, so it's not *quite* a historical. I really didn't enjoy that novel, for the same reason Thuy didn't enjoy this book. I didn't feel connected to any of the characters. But somehow, as shallow as she might have thought Louisa, Mac, and the rest of the characters in Hidden Paradise to be, I really felt attached to them and invested in their eventual happiness.

There are several characters telling this story, which I admit can be confusing. I liked switching from one to the other, though--this element of the book gives it a very British TV-miniseries feel. Many of the characters are dealing with disappointment--some crushingly sad problems. There's the widowed Louisa, adrift on a sea of grief; Mac, who is more of a Wickham than a Darcy and is beginning to realize how his life is becoming just what he deserves; and Rob, who is very young but who takes on greater family responsibility when his mother up and leaves his father and siblings. These three main characters turn to others looking for a good time, but come away with something more meaningful.

Don't get me wrong, this book isn't really all about them. It's sometimes about getting off with anything that moves and exposing every taboo. It's about counterpoints between consenting adults who are just in it for fun, those who have zero tolerance for affection, those who are in it only until the going gets rough, and those who find a little more meaning in a new connection beyond a quick shag, and it's the latter that kept me reading. Other erotica books like Captive in the Dark left me numb; The Angel left me apathetic, and Fifty Shades of Grey left me guffawing like a madwoman. Hidden Paradise touched me emotionally (ok, it may have touched a few other places, too), made me cry, and made me smile again.

It also made me want a two-week trip to England and a farm with an unobstructed view of the Rockies, but that's neither here nor there.

The Handbook of Natural Plant Dyes: Timber Tuesdays (2)


Alethea will be highlighting Timber Press books on Tuesdays! Disclaimer: I am not paid for these reviews, though I occasionally get eBook review copies from Netgalley. I just really like their books.

Publication date: 19 January 2011 by Timber Press
ISBN 10/13: 1604690712 | 9781604690712

Category: Non-Fiction Crafting
Keywords: Dyes, Plants, Nature, Sustainability
Format: Paperback
Source: Borrowed from the library

Alethea's review:

This handbook covers the methods, materials, and reasons for using natural ingredients instead of artificial chemical dyes to color cotton, wool, and other fibers. I really like the simple recipes and how the author mentions all the different ways you can come by the ingredients and equipment. The book is really well-designed.

Many crafters taking on a new method know that it's usually an expensive process, getting started by purchasing specialized items. The main themes of Duerr's instructions include sustainability and economy, and thus many of the items you need to start a project can come from things you already have around the house, can get cheaply at thrift stores, or even find growing in your garden. The ingredients listed are so many and varied that you can even buy quite a few at the produce section of your grocery store, or pick up plants at the garden center and grow small plants indoors. This is great for suburban apartment dwellers like me.

Duerr's research seems very well-informed and also highlights safety precautions, as on the surface it may seem that because you are using handmade and natural methods and materials, that the process is entirely safe and non-toxic. However, this mainly depends on how informed and responsible the dyer is, and so that is one of the main ideas focused on by the text.

Apart from the great technical advice included in this book, the projects and photos are very inspirational. The book is well-designed and easy to follow. If anything, the reader will be overwhelmed by the myriad of possibilities presented in this book. From upcycling old garments to using up table scraps and yard clippings, Duerr seems to have thought of every possibility.

I especially like the palette that shows off some of the great colors you can achieve through plant dyeing at home. While comprehensive, it is by no means encyclopedic. Reading this book makes me want to go for a walk and find the nearest lawn or park with a dandelion explosion because I can't imagine what the red extraction from dandelion roots looks like. It's not pictured in the book.

This would be a great gift for fans of both art and fashion, as well as nature and chemistry. If I ever plow through my yarn stash I'll probably buy some undyed wool to try this out myself.

By the way, if you love color, check out this great podcast from Radiolab all about colors.

OPI James Bond Skyfall Collection

I'm not sure if you guys know this, but I am a huge makeup geek, and I especially love nail polish. I am also a sucker for packaging and theme collections, which is why I am super excited about the 007 Skyfall Collection that OPI is putting out next month in conjunction with the next James Bond film. I've actually never read any of the Ian Fleming books on which the Bond movies are based, and I think I need to rectify this soon. Below is the press release from OPI.

Move over Pussy Galore, OPI's new 007 range of lacquer, Skyfall is definitely shaken but not stirred! 
OPI celebrates 50 years of the style, swagger and the mystique associated with Bond 007 movies through the release of a very special James Bond 007 range, Skyfall.  Inspired by the film’s blend of glamour and danger, the OPI Skyfall Collection consists of 12 dangerously stunning nail lacquers with each shade titled after one of the box office smash hit 007 movies. 
As with all OPI movie collaborations, the colours are a perfect match to their namesake.
The next highly-anticipated twenty-third instalment of the 007 James Bond movies, Skyfall, stars Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem and new bond girl Bérénice Marlohe.  In the movie Bond girl, actress Bérénice Marlohe wears two of OPI’s Skyfall shades, Skyfall, a rich shade of maroon chocolate, painted on top of the nail and GoldenEye, a shimmering gold, painted on the undersides.  This highly-anticipated twenty-third installment SkyFall, opens in cinemas nationwide on 22nd November, 2012. 
From metallic and glitter finishes to jewel tones and almost black, these lacquers capture the film’s glamorous appeal and sophistication.

the full collection

I haven't seen any of these in person yet but from the promo pics I am most excited for On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Live and Let Die, The World is Not Enough, and Tomorrow Never Dies. As you can see, I like greys and blues. Those reds look fun but I need to see them in person.

I know movie tie ins are cheesy but I can't help it. I loved the Hunger Games collection that China Glaze did earlier in the year and I totally want the new True Blood cookbook. Call me a sucker. I am hoping to get my hands on some of these polishes soon. When I do, I'll post some pics for you all. I also want to get some for a James Bond themed giveaway, so let's hope my beauty supply shop gets these in soon. 

What do you guys think? Do you love or hate movie/book tie in products? Are there any good collaborations you can think of or any particularly bad ones? I'd love to know. Thanks for stopping by!

Stacked (21)

Greetings! By the time you read this I will probably be on a plane flight back to Southern CA. An old high school friend is getting married in Atlanta this weekend and I will be making the trip out there for the festivities. Since I am leaving pretty early on Thursday, this installment of Stacked is going to be pretty short. Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully I will have more to show you all next week.


Seduced In The Dark (The Dark Duet #2) by CJ Roberts - My friend Kimberly lent me the first book in this series, Captive in the Dark, and I have been waiting to see what happens next. This isn't your typical romance or erotica book. It's a tough, emotional read that I really, really liked. Excited to read this one.

Wicked Nights by Gena Showalter - Last weekend this book was on Kindle sale for only $1.99. How could I resist? And I really like this cover. This guy has a fantastic body. :) I have only read a couple of Gena Showalter books, so I am really interested to see where this new series goes.

Tough Shit by Kevin Smith (audiobook) - I am a huge Kevin Smith fan. I've seen him live at Comic Con several times and love listening to his podcast. Figured listening to his book read by him would be more fun than just reading it. 

For Review (NetGalley)

Kiss of Steel by Bec McMaster - I haven't read too much steampunk but I have been hearing good things about this one. It was still available on NG and, luckily, I was able to get a copy.

That's all for me. I may post a few pics of Atlanta when I get back. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

Uncovered (31): The Lost

Hi and thanks for stopping by Uncovered, my weekly cover squee post. This week I have the cover to Vicki Petterson's The Lost, the second book in her supernatural noir series. I don't think I like this one quite as much as I do the first book in the series. However, I still think it rocks. I love the rockabilly vibe of the woman on the over. I mean look at that dress and her hair and makeup look awesome. I also love the that pink hue, which is feminine and eye catching. I even like the cute little cherry tattoo on her ankle. But what's this? A dark and mysterious angel type hunk in the background? Love the shadow wings. This cover is moody, sexy, and it stands out on the shelf. This is one I will be proudly displaying on my bookshelf.

The artist on this cover is Larry Rosstant. He's done a lot of cover art over the years and, chances are, you've seen his work. My fellow blogger Lee from She Wolf Reads has a great interview with Larry from earlier this year here. You should totally check it out. It's a great interview and I love learning more about the artistic process. Larry's official website can be found here.

The Lost will be released on March 19, 2013 by Harper. So what do you think? Love it, hate it? Let me know!

Wicked As They Come - Review

Wicked As They Come (Blud #1) 
by Delilah S. Wilson
Publication date: 27 March 2012 by Pocket Books
ISBN 10/13: 1451657889 | 9781451657883
Goodreads | Amazon | B&N | Book Depository | Indiebound

Category: Adult Paranormal Romance/Steampunk
Keywords: Paranormal, romance, steampunk, vampires
Format: Mass market paperback, eBook
Source: Purchased


When Tish Everett forces open the ruby locket she finds at an estate sale, she has no idea that a deliciously rakish Bludman has cast a spell just for her. She wakes up in a surreal world, where Criminy Stain, the dashing proprietor of a magical traveling circus, curiously awaits. At Criminy’s electric touch, Tish glimpses a tantalizing future, but she also foresees her ultimate doom. Before she can decide whether to risk her fate with the charming daredevil, the locket disappears, and with it, her only chance to return home. Tish and Criminy battle roaring sea monsters and thundering bludmares, vengeful ghosts and crooked Coppers in a treacherous race to recover the necklace from the evil Blud-hating Magistrate. But if they succeed, will Tish forsake her fanged suitor and return to her normal life, or will she take a chance on an unpredictable but dangerous destiny with the Bludman she’s coming to love?

Thuy's Review:

I have to be honest and say that I struggled to finish this one. While it had a really cool premise, I had trouble getting into the story and was never able to connect with any of the characters. The pacing of the book was also off, with an extremely slow start, and didn’t pick up until the middle of the book or so. Unfortunately by then, I had a lost a lot of interest and was just trying to get to the finish line.

The book starts off well enough with Tish finding a locket at an estate sale. When she goes to bed, she wakes up naked in a strange world that is similar to her own but also very different. Criminy Stain is there, a mysterious stranger who claims that he cast a spell to bring her to him. Tish must learn to survive in this new, dangerous world while trying to find a permanent way back to her own world.

I think my main problem was with the characters. I found Tish to be whiny and annoying for most of the book. She has two men fighting over her and I couldn’t understand why either of them was interested. Criminy Stain, is the Mad Hatter in this tale, with his magic tricks and enigmatic nature. But instead of charming, I found him to be somewhat patronizing and a little manic. And while I am sure that there are many women out there who would find Criminy swoon worthy, he did nothing for me. I do give him points though for his infinite patience when dealing with Tish. I probably would have left her on the side of the road for the bludbunnies the first chance I got. The book was also lacking in the romance department. I didn’t feel any spark or emotional connection between the two. Even the sex scenes weren’t very exciting.

That’s not to say that I didn’t like anything about the book. It’s clear that Dawson is a good writer and I found the world of Blud to be very unique and imaginative. Dawson’s vivid descriptions paint a dark new world filled with terrifying, bloodthirsty (literally) creatures and ruthless Pinkies and Coppers. The idea of an oppressed vampire race is definitely interesting and I found myself wanting to know more about the history of Sang. I’d also like to learn more about how Tish’s human world and Sang are able to exist at the same time and if there are other parallel worlds.

I wish this had been more to my liking but you can’t win them all, right? If you’re interested in really unique worlds and don’t mind so-so characters, you might enjoy this more than I did.

Stacked (20): The One Full of Win

Hello again! Thanks for stopping by Stacked, my weekly book post about all of the goodies I received during the week. I am still on relatively low buy mandate though I do have a really hard time resisting a good ebook sale. I don't usually feel as guilty since they don't take up physical space. It's a weak argument but I am sticking to it.

I was really excited that Nalini Singh's new book Archangel's Storm was released. Already read it and it was great. If you want a copy, we have a nifty giveaway going on right here. I also won a huge box of books from Walden Pond Press. Seriously guys, if you don't already follow Walden Pond Press on Twitter and Facebook, you really should. They always have really great giveaways and are super nice to boot. Thank you, Kellie and WPP, for the wonderful books! Enough babbling for now. Check out my new books!


Archangel's Storm by Nalini Singh - I <3 Jason.

sorry for the poor picture quality but it was dark.

The aforementioned big box of books. Especially excited about The Fourth Stall Pt III and Neversink.

Those are my books this week. No big plans for the weekend really. I am going to try to read a few physical books since I will be out of town next weekend and will only be taking my Kindle. And did anyone else know about this movie called The Cold Light of Day that stars Henry Cavill and Bruce Willis? I don't know if it's any good but I may have to see it.
