For review:

Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl - Puffin
I haven't yet read Beautiful Creatures, but I am so excited to read both of them! They sound amazing! I can't get enough of my paranormal romances! :)

Firespell by Chloe Neill - Gollancz
I have wanted to read this book for ages! I am a huge fan of Neill's adult series, The Chicagoland Vamoures, so I'm really excited to try out her YA series.

Dark Secrets 3 by Elizabeth Chandler - Simon & Schuster UK
I have heard such great things about these books, and they sound so good! I have the first two, but I've not yet read any of them. Looking forward to them all.

Elixir by Hilary Duff with Elise Allen - Simon & Schuster UK
This book sounds really good! I have to say, I do have my doubts with it being a star writinng it, but I'm goin to try to ignore that when I read it and forget who the author is. But it does sound brilliant! I'm looking forward to reading it!

Won from Gollancz Dark Fantasy:

Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn
Will be reviewed on Ink and Paper. I am so looking forward to reading this! I've fancied this series for such a long time, so I'm excited I now have it to read! I won this as a runner up in Gollancz Dark Fantasy's "Dear Kitty" contest, where I wrote in as a vampire with fang ache.

Looks like I'm in for some good reading! :)

  7. Ladybug - Thank you! I'm looking forward to Elixir, but, as I said, I am slightly worried by the fact it's written by a star. We'll see!

    Emma - Thank you! :)

  8. I looked forward to reading Kitty and the Midnight Hour, but found I liked the idea of it more than the execution. I'm planning on reading the second one in the series before I review the first, in case it gets better (as many series do).

    Happy reading! =)

  11. Julianne - Oooh, thanks for the warning. I felt the same about Karen Chance's Cassie Palmerseries. Wasn't a fan of the first, but was persuaded to try the next one. She's one of my fave authors now :) Hope you enjoy the second one!

    Lea - Thank you! I'm looking forward to all three of them! Can't beat a good paranormal romance/urban fantasy! :)

    April - Cheers! I hope I end up writing a postive review of Elixir for you. I'm so looking forward to Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness! They sound so good!:)

  13. I'm seeing Elixir pop up everywhere this week. Not my cup of tea but I hope others enjoy it. I think it's my bias against Hillary Duff.
