Books That Make Me Go Oooooh (20) Under The Never Sky By Veronica Rossi

Waiting On Wednesday is a brilliant book blog feature hosted by Breaking The Spine 

Under The Never Sky By Veronica Rossi
Published In The UK By ATOM
Due For Release February 2012
Amazon LINK
Goodreads LINK

"Exiled from her comfortable home in the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—known as The Death Shop—are slim. In Reverie, she spent time with her friends roaming virtual environments called Realms. But in The Death Shop, even the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild—a savage. He’s also her only hope for survival.

A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry sees Aria as sheltered and fragile—everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he also needs Aria’s help; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, they come together reluctantly, and embark on a journey challenged as much by their prejudices as by cannibals and wolves. Their unlikely alliance will forever change the fate of all who live UNDER THE NEVER SKY.

The first book in a captivating trilogy, Veronica Rossi’s enthralling debut sweeps you into an unforgettable adventure"

I can see me basically listing the whole of Atom's new releases here over the next few weeks.  They have some of the most exciting up coming titles and this is no exception.  This sounds a great mix of fantasy and dystopia - these books leave me saying 'Bring on 2012!!'

Top Ten Books To Read During Halloween

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog feature hosted by the awesome people at The Broke and the Bookish 

I love a good supernatural style book, but have to say there aren't that many I have read that have left me particularly scared.  I'm going to have a good go at listing a few though - sadly not a complete list this week!!

  • Coraline By Neil Gaiman
This freaked the hell out of me.  It always shocks me how scary kids books can be.

  • The Replacement By Brenna Yovanoff
There were some seriously creepy characters in this that left the hair on the back of my neck raised
  • The Missing / Cryers Cross By Lisa McMann
Although not my favorite book, this had some very scary bits that would be perfect for a Halloween evening

Another week gone & happily I got to meet another author, Becca Fitzpatrick this time who I have already met and somehow she remembered me!!!  I did a proper fangirlish jig, eeek I do embarrass myself sometimes!!  Here's what I got....


I got this in a charity shop can you believe it?  Sounds right up my street!!


This I won from the lovely Cicely at Cicely Loves Books I've been dying to read the book anyway and Cicely highly recommended it too!!


Yep, my Mum got some amazing books this week - all sent from the lovely people at HarperCollins so my Mum has plenty of reading material whilst she is in hospital.  I have to say I am pretty jealous about a few of these, hopefully my Mum will share with me?!!

All in all a pretty good week, what was in your mailbox?

Waiting On Wednesday is a brilliant book blog feature hosted by Breaking The Spine

Due For Release January 2012

"When everyone is lying, who can you trust? Allie Sheridan's world is falling apart. She hates her school. Her brother has run away from home. And she's just been arrested. Again. This time her parents have finally had enough. They cut her off from her friends and send her away to a boarding school for problem teenagers. But Cimmeria Academy is no ordinary school. It allows no computers or phones. Its students are an odd mixture of the gifted, the tough and the privileged. And then there's the secretive Night School, whose activities other students are forbidden even to watch. When Allie is attacked one night the school begins to seem like a very dangerous place, Allie must learn who she can trust. And what's really going on at Cimmeria Academy" 

This sounds amazing, with all kinds of twists.  But its got me wondering if its supernatural or not???  This went straight on my wishlist!!!

Jack The Ripper walk with Maureen Johnson and the name of the star Giveaway

One of London's Old Streets
A few weeks ago I saw an amazing competition to get to go on a Jack The Ripper walk with the fantastic Maureen Johnson, who just happens to have written a book with a Ripper'ish twist.  I never imagined I could be one of the winners, so kind of put it out of my mind.  Then last week I got the email - OMG I did the biggest geekgirl dance you have ever seen!!  I think you could say I was excited!!!

I was told I could bring a guest, so brought my Mum along again.  She was just as excited and also did a bit of a geeky dance!!

St Butolphs Church
Thursday arrived and we made our way to Tower Hill station.  Directly outside the station we were greeted by Sarah from Harper Collins.  She immediately gave us our copies of the book & a beautiful postcard.  We were early again, so waited for the other winners, the guide & of course Maureen to arrive.  It took no time at all and was a great opportunity to get to chat with some of the other winners.

The cobbles of Mitre Square

We were led to a slightly quieter area and got introduced to our guide.  He gave us a bit of a run down on the route we'd be taking and told us some of the history of "Jack"  I'm not going to really attempt to retell the story as I am sure to get my facts wrong and that would be no good at all.

Me next to the scary bench
We were led all round London, making stops in various locations either where or very close to where the murders occurred.  At each stop the guide told us the next part of the rather gruesome story, not sparing at all on the details.  We walked past a stunning church "St Butolphs" where the prostitutes of the time frequented.  Very close by we arrived at Mitre Square where one of the murders occurred.  I sat next to the bench there, not realising this was the approximate location of the murder eeeeek!!

We were led on to more locations, walking through very quaint London streets, where there is no traffic and even still have gas style street lamps.  It made it very easy to get into the feel of what things may have been like.  Eerie would be a correct sum up.  We arrived at another quite location, next to a huge building which were told is the actual location of the School in the book.  As soon as I saw the building I thought of the story - shows Maureen's great story telling.  It was here we were told about the last and most horrific murder.

Inspiration for the school in the book

The Ten Bells Pub

Next we were taken along to 'The Ten Bells' Pub.  This was famously the last known place that one of the victims visited.  It is such a gorgeous & kind of scary looking building.  This still has all the features that would have been there back in the 1800's.  Next time I really must go in there for a drink!!

Maureen & Me
We were led round to Hanbury Street, where there isn't a great deal to be seen but it is where the second murder victim was found.  We had a group debate as to which side of the road was the right one, I still left uncertain, but we believe it to be the now site of a large building.

To finish off the tour we were taken back to a small alley near The Ten Bells pub.  Here we parted ways with our fantastic guide and got to get our books signed by Maureen.  She even posed for a picture with me - so cool!!!

The lovely people at Harper Collins, gave me another copy of the book to give away!!  I even got it signed for one of you lucky lot, all you have to do is fill out the form below!!

I've had another great bookish week.  Firstly got to meet the lovely Jana Oliver last Sunday & then got to go on a Jack The Ripper walk with Maureen Johnson!!  I've also got some amazing books this week here they are.....


I won this from the fabulous Tara over at Hobbitsies a while ago, but we've had to wait for it to be released and then shipped to the UK.  It is Stunning!!


I'm still to read the first of this series, but it is high on my TBR pile

This sounds quite different for me, but I'm eager to give it a go

This sounds right up my street, looking forward to starting it

I'm currently reading Angel (AKA Angel Burn) and am really enjoying it.  This next book is MASSIVE!!


I was given this whilst on the Jack The Ripper walk.  Maureen kindly signed it too!!

Myself and the lovely Laura at SisterSpooky: Bookfangirl had a geek day in London, finishing with meeting the awesome Jana Oliver at an informal signing.  Had an amazing time with her & she gave us all so great bits, like A T Shirt, Sticker, Iron on Patch & temporary tattoos.
I did buy a copy of Forbidden whilst we were there and got that signed


This I borrowed from Laura, sounds like a great read!!


This sounds really cool

I've been meaning to get this for a while & I am thrilled to finally have it!!!

What did you get this week??

Review - Name Of The Star: Shades of London By Maureen Johnson

"Thrilling ghost-hunting teen mystery as modern-day London is plagued by a sudden outbreak of brutal murders that mimic the horrific crimes of Jack the Ripper.
Sixteen-year-old American girl Rory has just arrived at boarding school in London when a Jack the Ripper copycat-killer begins terrorising the city. All the hallmarks of his infamous murders are frighteningly present, but there are few clues to the killer’s identity.

“Rippermania” grabs hold of modern-day London, and the police are stumped with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. In an unknown city with few friends to turn to, Rory makes a chilling discovery…
Could the copycat murderer really be Jack the Ripper back from the grave?"

UK Cover
This has been on my To Be Read pile for a while now, thanks to the lovely Jenny at Wondrous Reads giving me an ARC copy.  I've been dying to get round to and finally did - I was not disappointed!!!

I ADORE the UK cover.  The girls face is half hidden behind her hair and she has a very antique style face.  You can feel the sadness in her eyes.  And then with the old style London scene beneath it just sets you up for the story ahead.
The US cover is also very fitting and unique.  But to me it just doesn't have the same wow factor!!

US Cover
The story starts off with a gruesome discovery and the setting of a rather disturbing London.  The story then quickly shifts to the story of Rory, an American girl who is moving to the UK with her parents.  She's being sent to a boarding school in the London, whilst her parents will be living in Bristol.  I practically forgot about the discovery at the beginning of the book & found it an enthralling story about this girls life.  I felt all the isolation she was feeling and the anxieties of making new friends.  I could easily have read a book about this girls day to day normal life.  But then things started getting more paranormal and sinister, I do love that style so this was rather thrilling.  More gruesome things happen and you really end up in a spin wondering what is going on.

Reading this you really can feel how much affection Maureen feels for England.  She must have absorbed every aspect of our culture and put it in this book.  The humour in the book is quite black too, its so English!!!

I enjoyed this so much, its actually the quickest I have read a book in quite some time.  I really hope there is plenty more of this series to come!!

Books That Make Me Go Oooooh (18) Fever By Lauren DeStefano

Waiting On Wednesday is a brilliant book blog feature hosted by Breaking The Spine
Fever: The Chemical Garden series By Lauren DeStefano
Published In The UK By Harper Voyager
Due For Release In February 2012
Amazon LINK

"For 17-year-old Rhine Ellery, a daring escape from a suffocating polygamous marriage is only the beginning…
Running away brings Rhine and Gabriel right into a trap, in the form of a twisted carnival whose ringmistress keeps watch over a menagerie of girls. Just as Rhine uncovers what plans await her, her fortune turns again. With Gabriel at her side, Rhine travels through an environment as grim as the one she left a year ago – surroundings that mirror her own feelings of fear and hopelessness.
The two are determined to get to Manhattan, to relative safety with Rhine’s twin brother, Rowan. But the road there is long and perilous – and in a world where young women only live to age twenty and young men die at twenty-five, time is precious. Worse still, they can’t seem to elude Rhine’s father-in-law, Vaughn, who is determined to bring Rhine back to the mansion…by any means necessary.
In the sequel to Lauren DeStefano’s harrowing Wither, Rhine must decide if freedom is worth the price – now that she has more to lose than ever."

I loved Wither SO MUCH!!!  I'm begging everyone I can for a copy of this but so far very unsuccessful.  I NEED this book NOW!!!!

Top Ten Books I Wish I Could Read Again For The First Time

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog feature hosted by the awesome people at The Broke and the Bookish

Ooooh this is a tricky one this week, but I've thought of a few good uns' I believe....

1. An Inspector Calls By J.B.Priestley
I read this one at secondary school and just adored it.  Definitely the best book (play) that I've ever been forced to read!!!

2. Harry Potter books By J.K.Rowling
I never expected to love these books as much as I did, so I would love to have that feeling again of picking them up and not know what an amazing adventure I'm about to go on!!

3. The Study Books By Maria V Snyder
Once again I really didn't expect to love these as much as I did.  That feeling was amazing!!

4. The Taker By Alma Katsu
This one left me feeling rather disturbed and worryingly I kind of enjoyed it!!!

5. A Certain Slant Of Light By Laura Whitcomb
I love this book so much.  It left the loveliest warm feeling in my heart

6. The Host By Stephenie Meyer
This started quite slow so I didn't think I would enjoy it, but then I fell in love with it!  One of the only books to make me cry!!!  I loved that a book could make me feel so much emotion

7. The Body Finder By Kimberley Derting
This had so many twisty turny points that I'd love to read it all over again for the first time!

8. The Hunger Games Trilogy By Suzanne Collins
Little more needs be said really - I would love to start them all over

9. Shiver By Maggie Stiefvater
This left me all gooey and happy!!

10. Delirium By Lauren Oliver
This was epic, I love the whole idea behind it!!

Daughter Of Smoke And Bone Book Launch

On Monday 3rd October 2011 I was very luckily invited to the launch party for Laini Taylors new book 'Daughter Of Smoke and Bone'
I lucky enough to be given an ARC copy of the book back in July and read it pretty much immediately.  It was set in such a fantastic world, that I am so eager to read more about (beforehand I need to brush up on fantasy names though!!)

Anyway back to the launch.  I took my lovely Mum as my plus one.  We'd never been to an event like it before so knew we were in for a treat.
We arrived at the venue a little early, which I felt terribly guilty about but I am one of these that would rather be early than late!!  The venue was in a side street, where you wouldn't particularly expect to find a bar.  We got there and met one of the lovely bar staff at the door, she told us to go downstairs into the bar (Yep the bar is in a cellar!!!!)

 As we were early we sat in a corner out of the way at first, this was actually amazing as I got to absorb my surroundings.  The bar is in a Victorian style and so the lighting was mostly candles, with just a few lights here and there.  There were barrels for tables, stools were covered with vintage style sugar bags.  There were even dead flowers, which may sound weird but fit in with the setting 110%  I even found a little side room that had a BATH in it!!  Check out this photo!!

Then some of my blogger friends arrived, it was my first time getting to meet some of them so was both daunting and exciting.  They were absolutely lovely though and made me feel so much more comfortable!!  A huge stream of people then started to arrive and we were shown round to the larger seating area.  There were so many copies of Daughter Of Smoke and Bone lining the tables - wow such a gorgeous book!!

Andrew AKA Pewterwolf & me
The bar staff were making all sorts of cocktails, that I was sadly a bit too chicken to try - I'm so gutted now!!  One of the cocktails even changed colour :O
They made us all kinds of strange and wonderful foods, like smoking meringues that made people look like they were breathing fire.  We had chocolate air, that literally melted as it hit your tongue and so you were just left with a wonderful chocolate taste.  There were also vegetable bone marrows and garlic styled tomatoes - those were very interesting!!!

In between the cocktails and food we were introduced to the lady we'd all come to meet Laini Taylor.  She looked so happy and bubbly chatting away to everyone.  But her hair is just the most amazing thing I have ever seen - its BRIGHT PINK!!!  So awesomely cool.
There was a huge queue of people waiting to meet her and get their books signed, so I waited back a while and got to meet some of the amazing people at Hodder, can I repeat they are AMAZING!!  All were so nice and welcoming, they really made me feel part of their group.
Eventually it was my turn to meet Laini - she was amazing!!  I told her how much I loved the book, but that I really need to brush up on fantasy names as they did confuse me somewhat.  Laini was lovely enough to pose for a quick picture with me........

Me And Laini, with my Mum making a cameo behind me!

This was such a unique and wonderful evening that I will never forget.  I felt a VERY lucky girl!!

You can find my review of the Book HERE

I would love to take the opportunity to Thank Laini and Hodder & Stoughton for such a wonderful evening.

This week has been rather FAB!!  On Monday I got to go to the London book launch of Laini Taylors book 'Daughter Of Smoke And Bone'  I had the most amazing evening.  I will be posting an event report tomorrow!!  I also got some great books this week too, here they are.....


This I have read and really enjoyed.  Thrilled to have a beautiful finished UK copy & its signed!!

Michaela also attended the book launch and I was thrilled to get to spend some time chatting to her about books and HER book!  She very sweetly gave me a signed copy of her book


I already have Breaking Dawn obviously, but I have collected these special editions of the other books so just HAD to get this one too!
I actually started to read this some time ago, but for lots of reasons I couldn't finish it at the time.  I'm thrilled to now have my own copy that I can read as soon as I get a reading gap!!

I also got some vintage Harry Potter book bits

The First copy is the special Waterstones edition, this is not only signed and numbered, but also has an extra chapter from Patch's Point of View

The second copy comes from W H Smith.  They were selling this rather gorgeous red edition of the book, that I shall get Becca to sign when I meet her in a few weeks!!

That was my week :D  What did you guys get??....

Review - Forsaken: The Demon Trappers By Jana Oliver

"Riley has always wanted to be a Demon Trapper like her father, and she's already following in his footsteps as one of the best. But it's tough being the only girl in an all-guy world, especially when three of those guys start making her life more complicated: Simon, the angelic apprentice who has heaven on his side; Beck, the tough trapper who thinks he's God's gift, and Ori, the strikingly sexy stranger who keeps turning up to save her ass.
One thing’s for sure – if she doesn’t keep her wits about her there’ll be hell to pay . . ."

 When I first saw the UK edition of the book, I wasn't particularly drawn to it I must admit.  I read a bit about it and thought it sounded my kind of thing so got a copy.  I've since seen the US edition & its kind of made me really appreciate the UK one.  I don't know what it is, it just seems warmer and better to look at.  But of course its what on the pages that matter......

I bought this a good few months ago and with my ever increasing To Be Read Pile, this just kept getting over looked.  But my good friends recommended it as a great read & they really rarely steer me wrong, so I picked this up.  I'm thrilled I finally got round to it!!

On starting this I felt it had quite a ghostbusters feel to it, but with demons instead of the ghosts.  This actually changed rather quickly and took a Supernatural (TV Show) turn.  I can't say I preferred it either way, both were very entertaining and absorbing!

The lead character Riley shows amazing strength throughout the book, despite facing huge turmoil and heart ache.  I found her to be such an inspiring character & someone to be admired - even being a fictional character she is AMAZING!!!

Riley has 3 love interests in this book, which I felt some major jealousy over.  All 3 guys are pretty much awesome and seem to adore her which is understandable as she is awesome.  Still I would love a bit of interest from just 1 guy out there.....

This results with a rather surprise ending paving the way for the sequels, the 2nd one I'm buying on Sunday - CANNOT WAIT TO START IT!!!!!

Books That Make Me Go Oooooh (17) Clockwork Prince By Cassandra Clare

Waiting On Wednesday is a brilliant book blog feature hosted by Breaking The Spine

Clockwork Prince By Cassandra Clare (The Infernal Devices)
Published In The UK By Walker
Due For Release 6th December 2011
Amazon LINK
Goodreads LINK

"In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa's powers for his own dark ends.
With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister's war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move and that one of their own has betrayed them.
Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will; the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?
As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart."

I already have 3 editions of Clockwork Angel, so it is safe to say I am loving this series.  I cannot wait for this follow-up to be released, why oh why was the release put back to December???
