The Madly Series Blog Tour: Excerpt + Giveaway

I am honored today to participate in the Blog Tour for The Madly Series by M. Leighton, organized byAToMR Tours. Here, you will find an excerpt from Madly & The Jackal, the upcoming third installment of the series. I’ve had the opportunity to read the first two books, Madly (a novella) and Madly & Wolfhardt, and you will see those reviews on BlookGirl shortly. If you enjoy fast-paced paranormal stories that feature powerful mermaids, white-hot romance, and a unique spin on fairy tales, this may just be the series for you! You can find the novella, Madly, for FREE on BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.com. This is a great introduction to the series and will likely leave you wanting more! Once you’ve read the excerpt below, be sure to check out the GIVEAWAY at the bottom of this post for SIGNED paperbacks of Madly, Madly & Wolfhardt, and Madly & The Jackal, a Swag pack, and a Madly t-shirt. (US/CA only). Also, follow along with the other blogs on the tour. You can find the list here. Madly is your average nearly-eighteen year old girl—for a princess, that is. Madly James is thoroughly enjoying her internship in the small town of Slumber when the unthinkable happens—there’s a prison break in Atlas, the magically-protected home of Madly’s race. A traitor has set free eight Lore, the spirits of what humans know as fairy tales, and they are...

Waiting on Wednesday: The Rules (Project Paper Doll)

Happy Wednesday, dear readers! 🙂 Are you as ready for cooler weather, peppermint hot chocolate, and snuggly clothes as I am? Whew, it’s been a hot summer in Texas, but I still love my adopted state! This week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick has me so excited for 2013 – and it’ll be here before you know it! Published by Disney-Hyperion and due out sometime in April 2013, I give you: 1. Never trust anyone. 2. Remember they are always searching. 3. Don’t get involved. 4. Keep your head down. 5. Don’t fall in love. Five simple rules. Ariane Tucker has followed them since the night she escaped from the genetics lab where she was created, the result of combining human and extraterrestrial DNA. Ariane’s survival—and that of her adoptive father—depends on her ability to blend in among the full-blooded humans, to hide in plain sight from those who seek to recover their lost (and expensive) “project.” But when a cruel prank at school goes awry, it puts her in the path of Zane Bradshaw, the police chief’s son and someone who sees too much. Someone who really sees her. After years of trying to be invisible, Ariane finds the attention frightening—and utterly intoxicating. Suddenly, nothing is simple anymore, especially not the rules… How amazing does this book sound?! I have become a bit more fascinated by science as of...

Waiting on Wednesday: Altered

Happy Wednesday, dear reader! 🙂 In my search for this week’s pick, I noticed that so many books, YA and otherwise, have a female on the cover. I’m a bit sick of it, so when I stumbled upon today’s feature, I was thrilled! Due out on January 2, 2013 and published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, I give you… When you can’t trust yourself, who can you believe? Everything about Anna’s life is a secret. Her father works for the Branch at the helm of its latest project: monitoring and administering treatments to the four genetically altered boys in the lab below their farmhouse. There’s Nick, Cas, Trev . . . and Sam, who’s stolen Anna’s heart. When the Branch decides it’s time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape, killing the agents sent to retrieve them. Anna is torn between following Sam or staying behind in the safety of her everyday life. But her father pushes her to flee, making Sam promise to keep her away from the Branch, at all costs. There’s just one problem. Sam and the boys don’t remember anything before living in the lab—not even their true identities. Now on the run, Anna soon discovers that she and Sam are connected in more ways than either of them expected. And if they’re both going to survive, they must piece together the...

Waiting on Wednesday: Sanctum

I was looking for something different for this week’s “Waiting on Wednesday” pick, and when I remembered that this book should be arriving in my mailbox soon (thanks Amazon Children’s Publishing!), I knew I just had to feature it on the blog. It already has wonderful reviews from early readers, and I’m getting really excited for it. Written by Sarah Fine and due for publication on October 16, 2012, I give you: “My plan: Get into the city. Get Nadia. Find a way out. Simple.” A week ago, seventeen-year-old Lela Santos’s best friend, Nadia, killed herself. Today, thanks to a farewell ritual gone awry, Lela is standing in paradise, looking upon a vast gated city in the distance – hell. No one willingly walks through the Suicide Gates, into a place smothered in darkness and infested with depraved creatures. But Lela isn’t just anyone – she’s determined to save her best friend’s soul, even if it means sacrificing her eternal afterlife. As Lela struggles to find Nadia, she’s captured by the Guards, enormous, not-quite-human creatures that patrol the dark city’s endless streets. Their all-too-human leader, Malachi, is unlike them in every way except one: his deadly efficiency. When he meets Lela, Malachi forms his own plan: get her out of the city, even if it means she must leave Nadia behind. Malachi knows something Lela doesn’t – the dark...

Review: The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse

As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the U.S., and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet—having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help but stand out when she fails a test that all sixteen-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to The Wheel, an island where all would-be criminals end up. The life expectancy of prisoners on The Wheel is just two years, but...
