Every touch has its price
Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

Feature & Follow Friday - Bring Back to Life

I've never done a Feature & Follow Friday before, so I thought, why not do one now? This week's question is:

Characters, sometimes our favourites, die during books. If you'd get to choose, who would you bring back?

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs.
It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.
A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

Searching for a Co-blogger!

Hi guys! So I have a bit of a problem here. It's been more than a month of school and I feel like I'm unable to keep up with blogging.

And it's only Grade 8 right now...I wonder what it'll be like in high school...

Here are my options. I can either:

  1. Fail school
  2. Quit blogging
  3. Disappear all the time
  4. Get co-bloggers

And so after pondering about my options, I decided that I actually liked option four.

I'd like to find 1-2 individuals (depending on the quality of the applications) who are as enthusiastic, loves reading, and fangirls/fanboys about books as much as we do. You don't have to have a blog to be applicable, but I would like to find someone who has written reviews before, has read book blogs before, who knows how to format posts, and most importantly, run a blog.

Stacking the Shelves #6

Stacking The Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which book bloggers share the recent books they added to their shelves, borrowed from a friend or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! 

Guys. I haven't done a Stacking the Shelves since....March (6 MONTHS OH MY GOD). I literally had to go spend 1 minute searching through my posts to see which number it was and copy paste the image. Like wow. I can't believe it's been half a year already! Let's see if I still remember how to do this.
