I plan to do this on the new site once it is up and functional, so I figured I might as well start it out here. This will give you an idea of what to expect for reviews coming up and kind of give you an idea of some of the books I am in to.

The Alpha Drive
By: Kristen Martin
It’s the year 2055 and an anarchist organization has taken control with the aim to create a world-class society. Half of humankind is unknowingly living in an alternate reality called Dormance . . . and there are no plans to wake them up.
Sixteen-year-old introvert Emery Parker is one such dormant. An academic scholar who avoids ruffling feathers at all costs, Emery finds herself being transferred to a boarding school on the outskirts of Arizona. Little does she know, a family secret has the power to change the course of the future. When she’s approached with an opportunity to free the dormants, she sees no other choice but to accept, even though failure could mean having her memory wiped clean.
But when tech-savvy Torin Porter reaches out to her from the other side, Emery begins to question everything she was told about Dormance. If her family’s secret falls into the wrong hands, the world as she knows it will be faced with irreversible consequences. Now Emery must play both sides to uncover the truth about her family’s past or risk leaving mankind to live in an unconscious reality.
I’m pretty excited to read this one. I’ve been watching Kristen Martin on YouTube for a few months now and I finally ordered the book! It’s exciting and I love supporting Indie author’s. I’ve found a few amazing books by doing so.
Before I Fall
By: Lauren Oliver
For popular high school senior Samantha Kingston, February 12—”Cupid Day”—should be one big party, a day of valentines and roses and the privileges that come with being at the top of the social pyramid. And it is…until she dies in a terrible accident that night.
However, she still wakes up the next morning. In fact, Sam lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she ever imagined.
My cousin loaned me this book as well as The Shack and I’m excited to read this one. I’ve heard really good things about this book and I’m thrilled that she loaned it to me. I just have a bad habit of focusing on a certain series and then four months later I still have my cousins books. I tried to read The Shack last month but couldn’t seem to get into it even though it sounded amazing and more my style than this one did. I guess my cousin and I just differ on what we like to read.

A former blood slave, the vampire Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful aristocrat from the evil Lessening Society.
Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for one another begins to overtake them both, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against Bella’s tormentors drives him to the brink of madness. Now, Bella must help her lover overcome the wounds of his tortured past, and find a future with her…
Of course, since I have started the series, I now have to finish it and since I have like nine of the books, I have to read them until I run out before I can think right again, so,this will be on the list to read this month as well.
