The 23 of 20-13! (Most Anticipated!)

Hi all!

Well, it's almost brand new year! 2012 had its fair share of ups and downs and but I would say it's an overall positive year. And although I didn't meet all of my blogger goals, I had a fantastic first ten months of blogging and can't wait to see what the new year brings! 2013 looks like it's going to be an absolutely insane year for book releases! I attempted to narrow down my list...but I just ended up adding more. There are just so many releases! I managed to get it to 23 (which sort of rhymes with 2013) but even that was difficult! I'm sure I missed some but here's my list of my most anticipated of 2013!


Jan. 8th: Just One Day by Gayle Forman - I adore Gayle Forman and her stunning prose and I'm sure Just One Day will soon become a favorite of mine.

Jan. 29th: Asunder by Jodi Meadows - Incarnate was one of my favorite books of 2012 and Asunder is poised to be just as beautiful and soul-wrenching as the first.

Feb. 5th: House Rules by Chloe Neill - The Chicagoland Vampires series is one of my favorites and it just gets better and better as it progresses!
Feb 5th: Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi - Finally, finally FINALLY! I've been desperate for this book since last year and I cannot believe it's almost in my hands!
Feb. 12th: The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead - The end of the The Golden Lily. That is all.

Feb. 19th: Sever by Lauren DeStefano - Such a talented author and such gorgeous writing. I'll be sad to see this one end.

*Side Note: EVERYONE should also pick up Mind Games by Kiersten White this month because it is FANTASTIC*


March 5th: Requiem by Lauren Oliver - I really, really hope that this redeems the series. Delirium was brilliant, but I wasn't a Pandemonium fan. Hopefully this will be the ending this series deserves!
March 19th: Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare - Cassandra Clare is pretty good at doing endings so I'm really intrigued to see what she'll do with this one!
March 21st: 17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma - I only read the prologue of this so far and I'm in love. Fantastic writing and what looks to be a fantastic story!


April 1st: With All My Soul by Rachel Vincent - *cue ALL THE TEARS EVER* No! Not the last story with Tod! No! I can't! *hides in a corner*
April 2nd: Light by Michael Grant - Another series I've been with since the beginning and will be heart-broken to read the ending!
April 23rd: Game by Barry Lyga - Um, how awesome was I Hunt Killers guys? It made me love horror!
April 30th: Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins - I adored Sweet Evil and I'm so insanely excited to dive into this world again!


May 1st: Oath Bound by Rachel Vincent - Rachel Vincent, how are you so awesome? Cannot wait to dive back into this dark and twisted world.

May 14th: School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins - Hex Hall spin-off? Heck to the yes.

June 4th: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead - A. New. Adult. Richelle. Mead. Book. FINALLY. I'm a huge Richelle Mead fan, regardless of age group but I've missed her adult books and cannot wait to read this new one!

August (my birthday month!)

Midnight Frost by Jennifer Estep - 2012 brought the fantabulous Mythos Academy series onto my radar and MY GOODNESS I need this book now.

Sept. 10th: Antigoddess by Kendare Blake - A new series from one fan-freakin-tastic author. What's not to love?

Sept 26th: Fire With Fire by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian - Where my wicked girls at? *wink*

No Release Date (Yet)

Ilsa and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins - The long awaited conclusion to the awesome series is almost in our grasp!
Untitled Divergent #3 by Veronica Roth - UM. I'm not sure how I'm going to wait until Fall for this one. Can I haz now pleeeease?

Untitled Raven Boys #2 by Maggie Stiefvater - GANSEY. Need I say more?

The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - I think we're all super curious to find out what's really going on in this twisted story! I, for one, am desperate to find out the ending!

Well! Look at that! What an awesome set of books coming out in the new year! And there's tons more I didn't list. So, what's your most anticipated of 2013?

Review: One Night That Changes Everything by Lauren Barnholdt

Title: One Night That Changes Eveything
Author: Lauren Barnholdt
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: July 6th, 2010
Source: Borrowed (Thanks, Katie!)

My Rating: 4.5/5 

A hilarious and sweet teen novel by Lauren Barnholdt, the author of two-way street.

Two years ago, when Eliza Sellman was in ninth grade, her dad found out he was being transfered and the family was going to move. Having always been shy and not so confident about her body, Eliza took that opportunity to start a list in her private notebook of all the things she planned on doing when she moved but had always been afraid to--like wearing a miniskirt and asking guys to dance; singing karaoke in front of strangers; posting a photo of herself on her Facebook wall in a get the idea. New town, new Eliza, right? Well, she'll never know because the transfer fell through and they didn't move. But Eliza kept adding her goals and secret fears to the list in the notebook. Now it's two years later, and in that time Eliza has had and lost her first boyfriend. But this was more than your average breakup...turns out the sweet and cute Cooper was only dating her as a hazing stunt by a secret society. Eliza got her revenge by posting some pretty nasty (and only sort-of true) stuff about Cooper online. That posting has had major consequences and now Cooper and his buddies have stolen her private notebook and won't give it back until she performs all the things on her list in one night. It's torture...until Eliza steals something from the boys she knows they'll want to trade her notebook for. What starts out as a night of humiliation turns into a night of revelations as Eliza learns what Cooper was really thinking when they dated, the real reason he's stolen her notebook, and how freeing--and life-changing--it can be to do the things you fear the most.
Okay, I had absolutely no idea what I was getting into with this book. My awesome blogger friend Katie lent me two Lauren Barnholdt books and declared that I had to read them because they were amazing. I figured if she was giving them such high praise, I would enjoy them as well. I decided to pick up One Night That Changes Everything first because I loved the idea and my goodness was I shocked. I didn't just enjoy it, I absolutely freakin' LOVED it. It made me immediately read the other book Katie lent me (Watch Me) and go out an buy another Lauren Barnholdt book because I adored it so much. One Night That Changes Everything rocketed Lauren Barnholdt onto my "awesome authors" list with a bang.  

I'm usually not a fan of books that happen solely in the span of a night. Now, that's not the say that I will dislike the book because it has that element, but it's one that has to be done well for me to enjoy it. Lauren Barnholdt did superbly. Having Eliza (who I will gush my love for soon enough), her two crazy friends, and maybe-not-so-evil-ex-boyfriend run around Boston for one crazy night was perfect. It was the right story for the one-day plot line and kept me completely captivated for the whole story. And the plot itself was just so much fun! Watching Eliza face some of her greatest fears was heart-warming and so cute. And Eliza herself was such a delight. I loved her narration, her fierce little heart, and her stubborn attitude. She rambled on nervously, freaked out at points, and was completely and totally her hilarious self. She had to do somethings that terrified her but she fought through and kept her wits about her. Eliza was simply epic. Her friends, each with their hilarious quirks had me in stitches. And my heart my have done a few little squeezes when a certain boy was in the picture. Actually, my heart was doing all kinds of things during this book! I was so into it, I was having my own freakouts!

I think one of the best things about this novel is the writing. It was absolutely hilarious! I was laughing out loud, had a smile constantly on my face and basically wanted Eliza to be my bff. The writing was also really realistic, and made me really connected to the characters and the story. I could picture Eliza perfectly, and I felt like I knew her so well! The writing was just so smart and fun I couldn't get enough of it.

In short: One Night That Changes Everything was spectacular. I adored everything about it and have now placed Lauren Barnholdt at the top of my "must read" list!

Review + GIVEAWAY: Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep

Title: Crimson Frost (Mythos Academy #4)
Author: Jennifer Estep
Publisher: Kensington Teen
Release Date: December 24th, 2012
Source: ARC Recieved from author for an honest review

My Rating: 5/5

**WARNING: This summary contains spoilers for previous Mythos books! (My review, though, is SPOILER FREE)**

For a moment, a face flashed before my eyes—the most hideous face I’d ever seen. No matter how hard I tried to forget what had happened, I saw him everywhere I went. It was Loki—the evil god that I’d helped set free against my will.

I should have known that my first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster. If we’d gotten into a swordfight, or been ambushed by Reapers, I’d have been more prepared. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? I didn’t see that one coming.

I’ve been accused of purposely helping the Reapers free Loki from his prison—and the person leading the charge against me is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks I’m guilty. If I’m going to get out of this mess alive, I’ll have to do it myself…
I don't think my heart has entirely recovered from what I put it through reading this book. I don't even know if I can properly express how much I loved Crimson Frost. It was exactly the book I wanted to read and so so much more. Can I say it was perfect? Cause it just might be. It was just purely and simply fan-freakin-tastic.

Let me just say this up front: Gwen Frost, please be my best friend. She is spunky, fierce and sometimes a bit on the overwhelmed side. She's a real and genuine character, determined to do what's right despite the constant obstacles in her way. And even when it seems like too much, she manages to pull together and keep fighting. And, always keeps her sarcasm and wit about her! Her trusty love interest Logan, has to face a few new challenges in this novel, but he never loses his faith in Gwen. He's there for her, even when it means going against his family and the rest of the school. We got to see his warm, dashing side a lot in this novel and my, oh my, was it swoon-worthy. Daphne was her hiliarious, adorable and temperamental self and made me want to hug her through the whole book. Carson, her band geek boyfriend, was as endearing as always and the two together were just too cute for words. We get to meet a few new characters in this book, some of which I loved (Alexei) and others which I wanted to sock in the face (I will leave this blank to save from spoiling). All together, the characters in this book were just simply fantastic and made this book spectacular.   

I always know to put aside a day for Mythos books because I cannot stop once I start. And Crimson Frost was no exception. That first chapter had my jaw dropping and I knew there was no way I was putting this down until I found out just what the heck was going on. The plot continued to twist and turn, shocking me, angering me (there was one particular scene in which I may have shouted some angry words at the book), make me laugh and even making me cry. It was a crazy thrill-ride and I seriously loved every bit of it.

If you haven't started the Mythos Academy series, you need to get on that. Like, right now. They are awesome, hug-worthy books that just keep getting better and better! 

And now, for a giveaway! Jennifer Estep was kind enough to send me a bunch of Crimson Frost bookmarks to giveaway to you guys! They're pretty awesome. There should be more than one winner (if I did this whole Rafflecopter thing correctly) that will receive a couple bookmarks!

Best of 2012 (7): The BEST of the BEST (aka My Favorite Books of 2012)

And here we are! A week (okay, a couple weeks due to my lack of time to actually write these lists) of bests and favorites has gone by and it's time for the final list! So, without further ado, here's my list of my favorite books of 2012!
Honorary Mention: Burn for Burn 
Authors: Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian

Burn for Burn is such a guilty pleasure read and not because you don't want to admit you love it, but because it reminds you of every angry, vengeful thought you've ever had. And, admit it, you've had some. This book drags you in and completely immerses you into this crazy plot and into the heads three wicked gals. Mary, Lillia, and my favorite Kat were a dynamic trio and their quest for revenge was addicting. Seriously, I just had to know how it would end and I could not stop until I knew. I loved every bit of it of Burn for Burn and can't wait to get my next fix.   

Honorary Mention: Black Heart
Author: Holly Black
Cassel Sharpe, how I miss you already. Black Heart was a better ending for The Curseworkers Trilogy then I could have ever imagined. It was riveting, and the characters were seriously at their best. I actually love every single character in this story, including the villains! Lila was a brilliant character and love interest and she finally won me over in this last installment (I always liked her as a character, but not as a person). And Cassel. Oh, Cassel Sharpe has to marry me and marry me RIGHT NOW. He's an amazing, messed-up, gorgeous person. He's always trying to help those he cares about, even if they're not the nicest people. Fantastic idea, fantastic characters, Black Heart was simply fantastic.

Honorary Mention: Anna Dressed in Blood
Author: Kendare Blake
Okay, I made a pact to myself that I wouldn't have more than 10 on the list, but I really really wanted to break that rule for Anna Dressed in Blood. Because it was so so good and original. And the characters! My dear Anna Korlov is, hands down, one of my top characters ever. A bloodthirsty ghost as a love interest? Gah! It's just too awesome! Anna made me love her with her ferocity her personality, and that warm heart inside of her. And Cas with his hardened walls and determination was her perfect match. Together, they were two people surrounded by death but filled with so much life. I will be reading Anna Dressed in Blood and its sequel Girl of Nightmares again and again just to get another glimpse of these fabulous characters.

10. Clockwork Prince 
Author: Cassandra Clare

I didn't think I would have such a physical and emotional reaction to this book. My heart literally hurt after reading Clockwork Prince. These characters have cemented a place in my heart and I felt every painful moment they did. And this book was chalk full of painful moments. And filled with fantastic, realistic and developed characters. Seriously, this characters were spectacular! I loved the steampunk elements of the story as well, and I never doubted the plausibility of any of it. Cassandra Clare is a masterful at world building, and I was enchanted by this story. I wish I had read it sooner so I could have read it a bunch of times by now!

9. Shine
Author: Jeri Smith-Ready

Jeri Smith-Ready is so insanely awesome. She writes fantastic stories, creates superb characters, and is just such a genuinely great person. I have loved her Shade series for years and Shine was the perfect ending. I was so nervous to read Shine because I didn't want this fantastic trilogy to come to an end! You'll hear more about it in my review, but it was one of the most amazing experiences to read about Aura's trip to Ireland while I was on my own trip there. It added an extra element to an already excellent story. Zach and Aura really grow as people in this novel and have to face some really rough challenges. But, as always, they did it with strength, persistence and heart which they have so much of. It was a seriously spectacular novel, and I miss the world already.

8. The Evolution of Mara Dyer
Author: Michelle Hodkin

I literally sat with my jaw agape for a good ten minutes reading this book. The Evolution of Mara Dyer left me completely breathless, terrified, and maybe questioning my own sanity a bit. I kept wondering how in the world Mara was surviving these horrific events and not just curling up in a ball and crying. She is a tough gal, and she really impressed me in this book. So did Noah, who really changed in my eyes and I loved it. He was such a fantastic guy and the rock that Mara needed most. I love the whole insanity aspect of this book and that you never know if Mara is telling you the truth or not. The Evolution of Mara Dyer was just as addicting as the first one and I loved every second of it.

7. Jellicoe Road
Author: Melina Marchetta

I know this book has been out for a long while but I only just read it earlier this year. Jellicoe Road is a radiant story filled with impacting characters that had me in tears. The writing was gorgeous (it made my Best of 2012 Writing list at #4) and the way the story flitted back from past to present just displayed Melina Marchetta's extreme talent. I didn't really know what to expect when I cracked the spine of this novel but what I got was a book that gripped my heart and has yet to let go.

6. Incarnate
Author: Jodi Meadows

I became entranced by this story from page one and sometimes I still feel caught up in the magic. Jodi Meadows took an old idea (reincarnation) and put a creative and unique spin on it. Throw in some dragons, sylphs, bigotry, and a musical old-soul and you have one of my new favorite series. When I think about Incarnate it almost has a light, gauzy feel to it because it was just so enchanting. But, there's also a sharp edge, because of the themes Meadows so expertly wove into the story. It was just such a well written, well thought-out, and beautifully done story.  

5. Crimson Frost
Author: Jennifer Estep

Okay, I think everyone now knows my insane love of the Mythos Academy series (it made four of my lists). It's addicting, and Crimson Frost was the best of the bunch. I literally could not put the book down because I hadtoknowwhatwouldhappenrightnow. The plot was absolute perfect in the most anger inducing way. My heart was racing the entire book and I found myself literally shaking the book at points. The characters took it to a whole new level and really impressed me. Gwen Frost is a fierce, sarcastic gal and I love her to bits. Logan had me in tears and Daphne and Carson made me so proud. I could not imagine not having Crimson Frost on my Best Of list!

4. The Fault in Our Stars
Author: John Green

Two words that will forever make me cry: Augustus Waters. Seriously, the amount of tears I've cried over this book is insane. My mom, at one point, came into my room asking if I was okay cause she could hear the sobbing from the living room. Yup, it's a tearjerker. But it's also a brilliantly written, powerful story of kids learning to live as they're surrounded by death. I had been waiting for John Green's next book for years and The Fault in Our Stars blew me away. These characters will stick with me for a long time to come. And so will my jealousy over John Green's writing talent.

3. The Golden Lily
Author: Richelle Mead

I'm not even exaggerating when I say that my heart has not recovered from this book. It literally hurts to think about it. As I'm typing this, there's this little hole in my heart that keeps throbbing and I have the desire to shout "WHY" and shake my fist at the world. Man, this book. The thing about The Golden Lily is that Richelle Mead is a master at character development and I feel like I know these characters so well they could be my friends. Sydney is such an adorable gal, and I love watching her grow as a protagonist. Adrian is just such an amazing person and my love for him just grows every single page. I adored that my dear cowboy (aka Dimitri) was in this book! I missed him so. Gosh, I just adore this book so much.

2. The Raven Boys
Author: Maggie Stiefvater

How in the world goes Maggie Stiefvater write like that? Her words lift right off the page and bury themselves in your heart. The story of The Raven Boys had me captivated and spoke to me on so many different levels. I felt like a part of this story and wanted nothing more than to crawl into the pages and search for Glendower with these broken boys. And then there was Gansey. I haven't felt such complete connection to a character in a very long time and my goodness was it fantastic. Gansey was such a brilliant character and his desperate quest had me fascinated. The Raven Boys was a detailed, spectacular novel with some of the best characters I've read about, ever. It was magical, moving, and everything amazing about storytelling. 

1. This Is Not a Test
Author: Courtney Summers
I know, you're shocked right? I haven't been mute about my absolute adoration of Courtney Summers and her (in my opinion) best book to date. It's was, without a doubt, my favorite book I've read this year and is possibly my favorite book I've read period. I bussed an hour and a half just to get this book and, once I had it, I barely let it out of my hands. Not only is Courtney Summers writing absolutely breathtaking, this story and these characters were impacting and spectacular. This book petrified me because the writing was so engrossing. I felt like I was in the story, and I could not separate myself from it. I still don't think I have. Sloane stunned me, broke me, and had me searching for some hope in her destroyed world. These messed up, heart-breaking, broken characters made this story beautiful. Courtney Summers, you are brilliant, insanely talented and are one of the best authors out there.

And there we have it! My Best of 2012 lists are done! What do you think? What were YOUR favorite books this year?
