FADE! Review!

REMEMBER THAT THIS IS THE SECOND BOOK AFTER WAKE! ITS AWESOME!

Be sure to pick up FADE, February 10th!

Fade

FADE grips readers from the first page, and the story holds your attention through the whole book. The story keeps you wondering about Janies new “gift”.

Janies hard life is still following her, and she can’t get away from it.  The only person that Janie can trust in is Cabel, but they can’t be seen in public because of their job with Captain.

Janie is now learning from things that Mrs. Stubin has left for any new dream catchers.  Janie relationship with Cabel is getting strained, and she is getting put into diffucult situations that she can’t handle.  The story keeps you guessing, from beginning to end! Lisa is a wonderful writer, and has amazing talent!

Hey, I recently was looking for books and came across this one and looked so good, that I ordered it right after I read some reviews!

The book is called The Dust of 100 Dogs, by A.S King.

Here is the summary from AMAZON,

In the late seventeenth century, famed teenage pirate Emer Morrisey was on the cusp of escaping the pirate life with her one true love and unfathomable riches when she was slain and cursed with “the dust of one hundred dogs,” dooming her to one hundred lives as a dog before returning to a human body-with her memories intact.Now she’s a contemporary American teenager and all she needs is a shovel and a ride to Jamaica.

It sounds amazing, and this book is on the mature side 14-15+ Thanks! And it is a Young Adult book!

UPDATE-Finished the book and it was so good!

************************************************************************************************************

Hey, I am currently reading a series by Carrie Vaughn! The series is about WEREWOLVES, and VAMPIRES! The two things that we love here on Twilight Series Theories! I am currently reading Kitty and the Dead Man’s Hand! So far its so good! I have all the books, and it is a fun story with , werewolves, and vampire, Oh-MY!

Here are the books,

Kitty Norville (Werewolf)

  1. Kitty and the Midnight Hour (2005)
  2. Kitty Goes to Washington (2006)
  3. Kitty Takes a Holiday (2007)
  4. Kitty and the Silver Bullet (2008)
  5. Kitty and the Dead Man’s Hand (February 2009)
  6. Kitty Raises Hell (March/April 2009)

The links above are for AMAZON.COM! Books 5, and 6, are currently not out, they will be out soon, and as I am half way through book 5, its really good!

Here is the summary of the first book from AMAZON.COM

VAMPIRES. WEREWOLVES. TALK RADIO. Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station—and a werewolf in the closet. Sick of lame song requests, she accidentally starts “The Midnight Hour,” a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. After desperate vampires, werewolves, and witches across the country begin calling in to share their woes, her new show is a raging success. But it’s Kitty who can use some help. With one sexy werewolf-hunter and a few homicidal undead on her tail, Kitty may have bitten off more than she can chew…

These books are under the FANTASY Genre! Just a heads up!

UPDATE- This book was very cool, and had a nice spin on your ordinary werewolf stories!

**********************************************************************************************************

Hey! I recently recieved FADE by Lisa McMann, and I have not finished it, but so far its AMAZING! I love this story that Lisa creates!  The book comes out Feburary 10th! So look out for it in stores! Be sure to read WAKE, the first book in the series!

Also guys when ever I recommend a book and you read it, and like or dislike it email me at alexmtst@gmail.com and let me know! Thanks!

FADE by Lisa Mcmann

FADE by Lisa Mcmann

Here is the AMAZON summary!

SOME NIGHTMARES NEVER END.

For Janie and Cabel, real life is getting tougher than the dreams. They’re just trying to carve out a little (secret) time together, but no such luck.

Disturbing things are happening at Fieldridge High, yet nobody’s talking. When Janie taps into a classmate’s violent nightmares, the case finally breaks open — but nothing goes as planned. Not even close. Janie’s in way over her head, and Cabe’s shocking behavior has grave consequences for them both.

Worse yet, Janie learns the truth about herself and her ability — and it’s bleak. Seriously, brutally bleak. Not only is her fate as a dream catcher sealed, but what’s to come is way darker than she’d feared….

Thanks!

UPDATE- Finished this book and Lisa did it again the story is awesome, and I can’t wait for GONE (book3)

**************************************************************************************************************

Hey! Alex here! I got an email today from Abby Harris, and she recommeded Night World no. 1. I also got this recommendation from alot of other people, so thanks to all!

Here is the description from AMAZON.com

Vampires, werewolves, witches, shapeshifters — they live among us without our knowledge. Night World is their secret society, a secret society with very strict rules. And falling in love breaks all the laws of the Night World.

In Secret Vampire, Poppy thought the summer would last forever. Then she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Now Poppy’s only hope for survival is James, her friend and secret love. A vampire in the Night World, James can make Poppy immortal. But first they both must risk everything to go against the laws of Night World.

Fugitives from Night World, three vampire sisters leave their isolated home to live among humans in Daughters of Darkness. Their brother, Ash, is sent to bring the girls back, but he falls in love with their beautiful friend.Two witch cousins fight over their high school crush. It’s a battle between black magic and white magic in Spellbinder.

The book is about Vampires as it says above, and I was a little dissapointed haha, because in the AMAZON reviews, so many people were saying how much they loved this story, even more than TWILIGHT! I know *gasp*!

Hey, the staffer that is recommending a book for the month of January.  So when I told Kallie that she is going to have to givea book recommendations, this is the responce that I got!

Kallie Mathews gave 5 stars to: Outlander (Outlander, Book 1) by Diana Gabaldon
bookshelves: currently-reading

Ok… so I am a little over halfway through and LOVE IT! I can’t believe there is still more to read… this book is HUGE!

With that responce, I am guessing that this book is GREAT!

Here is the AMAZON summary!

In Outlander, a 600-page time-travel romance, strong-willed and sensual Claire Randall leads a double life with a husband in one century, and a lover in another. Torn between fidelity and desire, she struggles to understand the pure intent of her heart. But don’t let the number of pages and the Scottish dialect scare you. It’s one of the fastest reads you’ll have in your library.While on her second honeymoon in the British Isles, Claire touches a boulder that hurls her back in time to the forbidden Castle Leoch with the MacKenzie clan. Not understanding the forces that brought her there, she becomes ensnared in life-threatening situations with a Scots warrior named James Fraser. But it isn’t all spies and drudgery that she must endure. For amid her new surroundings and the terrors she faces, she is lured into love and passion like she’s never known before.

Thanks, keep the recommendation coming!!!!

DISTANT WAVES A NOVEL OF THE TITANIC!

Distant Waves is a romance novel that is about two couples.  The main story follows Jane, a 16 year old girl,  who’s mother believes that she can contact the spirit world.  The story takes place over 16 long years. Jane’s mother gets the chance to go to England, for a conference, and on the way back, Jane, and her sisters accidentally get stuck on the Titanic, what will happen?  The story is a must read, a truly wonderful novel! The story is written very well, and will keep the reader wondering, a real page turner, with a different type of ending!  The only bad thing about this book is that the characters never actually get on the Titanic til page 200.

The Dangerous Days of Daniel X

James Patterson does it again, with this great book.  Like most Patterson books its a quick read, with a great plot.  At first I was hesitant to read this because I don’t enjoy alien novels, but this is an exception! Daniels parents were killed by an Alien when he was young, and now that he has grown up he is hunting Aliens on Earth, trying to get to the Alien that murdered his parents.  Daniel has great powers and the one power that I love is he can create things with his mind….All he has to do is think it and BAM, it is there! how cool! Must read!

-Alex (Currently reading the second in the series review up soon!–Out July 27th 2009)

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Here is my review for probably the most popular recommendation that I have been getting from you people!

Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment is a very interesting read. The story is about six kids, that call themselves mutate freaks. When they were younger, a place called “The School” injected them with bird genes. So now, they are 98% human, and 2% bird. The only real quality of a bird that they have is their wings. Which yes they can fly with! Each of the kids look up to Maximum, as there parent figure since she is the oldest. Therefore, what happens when the youngest of their flock gets kidnapped and taken back to “The School” Max’s only mission is to get her back! This book is an awesome read, which you will not put down until the last page. My recommendation is to buy book one and book two or rent them at once because book one will leave you wanting more! (There are currently five books in the series!)

Maximum Ride Schools Out Forever Review coming soon!

This book has a fast pace fun plot.  If you like a mystery with some romance than you’ll love this story! Delia is just an average teenage girl that has the worst luck.  Her father died when she was younger, and her mother who was on a trip to Antarctica just disappeared.  Now she is forced to move to New York City with her aunt.

That’s not even the worst part, Delia knows that her mother, T.K, is not dead, she is alive, but nobody will believe her.  Delia is on a mission to locate her mother, but experiences many hardships.  One is that she starts falling for a guy named Quinn, but she tries to keep her priorities straight, and find her mother.  This boo is a very great read, an adventures girl on a mission that makes everything unravel.

Book comes out July 2009!

The Scarecrow by Michael Connelly is his latest novel. This book is action packed, with adventures on every page, a non stop page turner!

This book was totally amazing, but WARNING, this is published as an Adult book, with language, sexually scenes, and violence! Just a heads up! :-)

The Hollow by Jessica Verday is a phenomenal read that will leave you itching to read the sequel! Abbey, a teenage girl, has just lost her best friend Kristen – to a freak accident where is fell into a river. This seems very odd to Abbey because when they were just pre-teens they promised each other that they would never go to the river without the other just in case something happened, and Kristen broke that promise. This leaves Abbey wondering what could have happened to Kristen. Abbey and Kristen use to visit the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, but now it feels weird to Abbey because Kristen now lives there, 6 feet under the ground. Still Abbey stops by the Cemetery almost every day, she evens meets someone, a guy, who she starts to fall for. In time, Caspian and Abbey become close, but as Abbey gets to know him things get stranger and stranger. Abbey also continues to search to find out what happened and why Kristen was done at the river, she soon discovers something that makes Abbey re-think their whole friendship. She soon has to think about her love for Caspian and what it is really about, it is as if he is too good to be true.

Jessica Verday is my favorite break out author of 2009! She writes with such passion that it is hard not to think that this is fiction. The Hollow is such a wonderful book full of twists. I think that you should go pre-order this book now because it will fly off the shelves at your local bookstore! Its not your average love story, it’s a love story with a paranormal twist!

ASH

Everyone knows the story of Cinderella, right.  Well ASH is a different kind of Cinderella story.  Much different. Aisling, better known as Ash, losses her mother  at a very young age, and when her father get remarried Ash learns to live with it.  But when her father becomes deeply ill, and dies she is forced to live with her step mother and her two daughters.  Ash is forced to work as a maid around the house to repay her step mother for her fathers debts.  On her free time Ash slips into the forest where she feels closest to her mother, but she soon discovers someone – a man – but soon she discovers that he is not really a man, but a fairy.  His name Sidhean, and he promises to grant Ash anything she desires but at a cost, that he will not tell.  Later in the same Wood Ash meets someone that changes her life, the Kings Huntress, Kaisa, who Ash becomes very close with.  Through the story you watch their blooming friendship turn into a wonderful relationship.

This is a powerful, and different retelling of Cinderella.  I have read many “retellings” of Cinderella, and other fairy tales, but this one is unique and has a special quality to it.  Malinda Lo is a very talented debut writer, a new voice in Young Adult fiction.

Now I have to say this Ash is a ” lesbian retelling of Cinderella”  but I think its more than that, I dont look at it like that, just two people who fall in love.  A beautifully debut novel by Malinda Lo!

  1. Carly (Lautner) says:

    good. you have to finish it so you can read City of Ashes and then move onto City of Glass, which imho is the best in the trilogy. :) no pressure.

  2. Sami.Salvo says:

    I Have to Recommend the Bard Academy novels

    Wuthering High
    The Scarlett Leterman
    Moby Clique

    These are books about a boarding school for teenage delinquents where all of the teachers are the ghosts of famous classic literature.

    Copy and paste description from Amazon for Wuthering High:
    **Fifteen-year-old Mia is not exactly thrilled when she gets the news that her parents are shipping her off to boarding school. It’s not like she did anything that bad — all she did was wreck her dad’s car and max out her step mum’s credit cards. So, off she goes, from Chicago to Bard Academy, an exclusive prep school that treats troubled teenagers with a healthy dose of higher learning and old-fashioned discipline. But all is not what it seems at this educational institute, and Mia and her classmates soon discover that the teachers are actually ghosts, stuck in limbo, some of them famous authors who died before their time, including Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, and Charlotte Bronte. And what’s even more disturbing is that not all the ghosts have good intentions. Mia and her friends must stop one evil instructor’s plan to bring down the school — and the entire student body with it.

  3. Carly (Lautner) says:

    it’s Miranda, not Mia.

    i loved those books.

  4. Alex says:

    CARLY! Have you read WAKE AND FADE, if not you have tooOO!!!OOO!O!O!O!O!O!!O
    by Lisa Mcmann! (I love her)
    But lets just say there may be an interview, with her sometime soon???!!!????? HEEHEHE!

  5. Marie says:

    Alex/Carly, your interchange is so funny.

    I’m glad Alex decided to read City of Bones. It is so Good! I’d love to hear what Alex thinks about the next two series as well. I wish more people would read them so that I’d have someone to talk to them about it. It’s very frustrating.

    I think Wake and Fade are awesome. The Hunger Games is also riveting. I also did like The Host (at least at by the end of the book I did and the ending makes me look forward to more from that series).

    I’ve read Blue Bloods, it’s an interesting take on the Vampire lore but the books are too short and characters don’t evolve enough book to book. I feel like I’m reading mini novels and although she delves into the lore between vampires and angels, she also puts much too much detail on the clothes the girls wear (prada etc) and not enough on the characters and their interchange.

    I read the entire PC Cast Vampire series. It is interesting (in an I’m obsessed with Vampires kind of way), but the lead character Zoey devovles into such a narcissicist that it’s actually hard to read through the end of the last book and like her. She simultanously uses 4 guys and strings them along. Bella with Jacob and Edward bordered on cruelty but Zoey takes the cake on insensitivity and inconsideration.

    I’ve read ‘Wicked Lovely (it was OK), Ink Exchange (a more engaging endeavor) and the last one Fragile Eternity (back to OK). There are very few redeeming qualities to the characters in the last two books. The romantic tensions created by the author feel like superficial constructs in the last two books. I think at the end of the book, Melissa Marr thinks we’ll all root for the two former human protagonists, and instead, I was sad for the King.

    I also breezed throught the Maria Snyder books (Poison Study, etc). I like them for the strong female characters. But, the male characters are a little weak and not fleshed out enough. The main male protagonists feels two dimensional. He’s smart, he’s a great fighter and he’s loyal– but what really drives him and makes him what he is? When I compare Snyder’s books to Meyer’s books, there’s no contest. For example, it’s a wonder that Edward in Twilight is such a developed character when Twilight is all written from Bella’s point of view. In the meadow scene and you can really feel his conflict and pain. I think that’s what makes Twilight such a gem.

    Finally, I have one suggestion for a GREAT book read. It’s an older book and it’s made me a Tanith Lee fan for life (briefly mentioned by the way in the PC Cast book to their credit): If you like Twilight and MI, I think you’ll like Silver Metal Lover. The title is a little cliche and suggestive and I bet would make most people in the young adult genre would shy away from it, but I think by today’s standards the book is very “PG-13.”

  6. Alex says:

    Hahaha! Marie why don’t you get in on our conversation! Always room for one (or 100) more! haha!

    and Carly! WHERE ARE YOU! I am bored! AH!

    -Alex

  7. Alex says:

  8. Alex says:

  9. Carly Lautner-Lambert-Lightwood says:

  20. Laurie M. (TimeStand Still) says:

    I just started The Kingdome Keepers today. You should check out I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder. I read it in an hour last night. It a story through prose. It was so touching and amazing. Kallie would love this one and I think Kassie would find it a great short read.

  21. Carly Lautner-Lambert-Lightwood says:

    i just read Wake and Fade. OMMMMMMMMG. i heart Cabel. i might have to add Strumheller to my longish last name, but that ruins the whole L thing.

Manda writes fanfiction, and she wrote 2 FAB stories for Wake, along with one for the Hunger Games, one for Wicked Lovely, and tons for Twilight and Mortal Instruments. so go check her out!! http://www.fanfiction.net/~baronhotschaftvonhugenstein (haha shameless advertising. you’re welcome, Manda.)

    i’ll tell Miranda. she’ll be very happy. and ugh….i want to be the book recommendations person so i can talk to Lisa McMann and read Catching Fire and Gone and all that stuff. :( but :) for you.

  26. Miranda says:

    OMG! ARE YOU FRICKIN’ KIDDING ME?? you’re going to tell LISA MCMANN about my fanfiction??

    *hyperventilates*

    anyone have a paper bag?

  27. Alex says:

    LOL Love the faces Carly!

  28. Miranda says:

    hey, Alex! check out my profile on FF.net right under where it says “i’ve turned to the dark side”!!

  29. Alex says:

    AW! Thanks! Your Awesome! I really loved your FAN FIC of WAKE! GONE (book 3) comes out feb. 9!

  30. Carly Lautner-Lambert-Lightwood says:

    and you’ve probably read that too…sigh.

    i have this whole conspiracy where i hire a hit man to murder you then i take your place. that way i can read Catching Fire.

    and i just read a really good book. it’s not urban fantasy (which i love, and i think you do too.) it’s called Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway. it’s fantastic. it’s about this girl named Audrey whose ex-boyfriend, who’s in a rock band, writes a song about their breakup called “Audrey, Wait!” that gets really famous, and now she gets stalked by paparazzi and stuff. it’s amazing. it’s kind of chick-litty, so be warned.

  31. Alex says:

    Ok you say chick-litty IM A GUY!
    you do know that!

  32. Carly Lautner-Lambert-Lightwood says:

    that’s way i said “BE WARNED.”

    i know you’re a guy.

    but read it anyway. there are lots of pretty girls in it. :)

  33. Alex says:

    Ok I will check it out! But umm… The gils you say “pretty” THEY ARE FICTIONAL!
    -PS who publishes the book and who is the author Carly??
    -Alex

  34. Alex says:

    Carly you do know that Adam is GAY! Right>
    -Alex

  35. Rikki says:

    The Evernight series by ummmmm… Claudia Gray/Grey whichever one. XDXD that good…

  36. Carly Lautner-Lambert-Lightwood says:

    i know Adam’s gay. it’s not fair. all the good ones are either gay, fictional, or taken.

    and Audrey, Wait! is by Robin Benway. published by Razor Bill.

    and who’s to say fictional characters can’t be pretty? Jace from the Mortal Instruments is VERRRY pretty. and speaking of the Mortal Instruments…you haven’t picked CoB back up, have you?

  37. Alex says:

    OK, What ever your special CARLY! :-), and I have no problem with him being GAY, I know people who is gay, just saying! :-) and Um, ok Razor Bill, thanks, :-) I will look into it! Reading THE SCARECROW now!
