Unleashed Review

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Katelyn McBride’s life changed in an instant when her mother died. Uprooted from her California home, Katelyn was shipped to the middle of nowhere, Arkansas, to her only living relative, her grandfather. And now she has to start over in Wolf Springs, a tiny village in the Ozark Mountains. Like any small town, Wolf Springs has secrets. But the secrets hidden here are more sinister than Katelyn could ever imagine. It’s a town with a history that reaches back centuries, spans continents, and conceals terrifying truths. And Katelyn McBride is about to change everything.

Broken families, ageless grudges, forced alliances, and love that blooms in the darkest night—welcome to Wolf Springs.

I waited forever for this book to come out!!! As soon as I seen it, I HAD to read it, and I have to say, it met my expectations!! I fell in love with Andrea Cremer's Nightshade series, as many of you probably know by now, and I was hoping this would be just as good, and it is! I was hoping for some werewolf stuff right away, but it doesn't really come until later in the book, which was actually, probably better. 
I love how they ended each chapter, each one had a cliffhanger that make me want to turn the page even when I had to put the book down. So many things were constantly going on throughout the whole book, I wanted to read it all.the.time.! At first I didn't really care for Katelyn's grandpa, but I totally warmed up to him by the end of the book. I loved Trick right away, he's got that nice-guy, cowboy, but sexy thing going on, I kind of wish there was more of him. And Cordelia's father, I wanted to punch him in the face! What a jerk! I think all the characters are very well written, and planned out.

I loved every minute of this book, from beginning to end. I was so sad when I finished it, I can't wait for the 2nd book already! It's such a page-turner, I constantly wanted more. If you like the Nightshade series, I highly recommend picking up this book :)

Worth a Look!

Just spotted this on goodreads and decided I had to post it!! This book looks freaking amazing, the cover is beautiful and the description makes me wanna read it even more!

In My Dreams by Cameo Renae

Released: April 30th/2011
242 pages

What It's About!

It was happening again. The dreams. The nightmares. It was something seventeen year-old Elizabeth "Lizzy" Hayes thought she'd outgrown; dreams that would come true; detailed premonitions of how people would die. This time she dreams about her boyfriend, Michael Young, and soon discovers that he's been found... dead.
Michael hasn't crossed over because he was murdered, and now his murderer is coming for Lizzy. His spirit won't rest until she is safe, and as a newbie spirit, the easiest way for him to make contact is through Lizzy's dreams. When she dreams, it's as if he hasn't died.
Lizzy must learn to pull on her inner strength to survive horrifying events. Meanwhile, in the spirit world, Michael learns everything he can about his supernatural gifts to help. But will it be enough to save her?

One Moment, One Morning by Sarah Rayner

Release Date: Dec 20th/2011
416 pages

What It's About!

The Brighton to London line. The 7:44 am train. Cars packed with commuters. One woman occupies her time observing the people around her. Opposite, a girl puts on her make-up. Across the aisle, a husband strokes his wife’s hand. Further along, another woman flicks through a glossy magazine. Then, abruptly, everything changes: a man collapses, the train is stopped, and an ambulance is called.
For at least three passengers on the 7:44 on that particular morning, life will never be the same again. There’s Lou, in an adjacent seat, who witnesses events first hand. Anna, who’s sitting further up the train, impatient to get to work. And Karen, the man’s wife.

Telling the story of the week following that fateful train journey, One Moment, One Morning is a stunning novel about love and loss, about family and – above all– friendship. A stark reminder that, sometimes, one moment is all it takes to shatter everything. Yet it also reminds us that somehow, despite it all, life can and does go on.

Cas doesn’t know what happened to Anna when she disappeared into Hell, but he knows she doesn’t deserve whatever is happening to her now. Anna saved Cas more than once, and it’s time for him to return the favor.
