Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Looking for a good werewolf story? Well, this is definitely one of the best I’ve read in a long time! Just don’t let the characters hear you call them werewolves…you might not live to finish the book!

Calla is the heroine and narrator of Nightshade. She is an alpha wolf trying to cope with her new pack and the idea of having to get married on Samhain. All her life she has known that this day would come. She was set to marry Ren, the alpha male of the rival pack and they would form a new pack. What she wasn’t ready for was Shay. He is human, but not afraid of any of the pack members, unlike the rest of the humans. He actually seems to want to challenge Ren for Calla’s attention. He also makes her rethink her role in the pack and her role in life in general.

This sounds like another “Twilight-ish” book, but it’s not. Yes, there is the triangle of “lovers”, but that it the only thing that comes close to being like it.

I really enjoyed this book, because I haven’t read anything like it. Which is saying a lot. I read all the time. I liked the world that Ms. Cremer has set up and I can’t wait to find out everything that will happen in the sequel.

The only bad thing about this book is that the sequel isn’t out yet and I have to wait for it. I want to know!! Gah! Rudeness! Hehe


Hourglass by Claudia Grey

So…it sure has been awhile. I think I’ve read over 10 books and haven’t done any writing on them. Let’s just say I have been a little busy. The fact that I am even able to read is a blessing right now. So much drama…so little time.

On with the show!

I think Hourglass is the best out of the series so far. Each book gets better and better! When I first picked up Evernight I was really scared. I didn’t know if I should keep going with the series and I’m really glad that I did.

There are a lot of vampire and paranormal series out there now and it’s hard to find something that you want to stay with. They are all starting to blend together.

In this book, we follow Bianca and Lucas as they move around with Black Cross. Not only does her secret come out, but

***spoiler alert***

someone dies!!

If you’ve read the other 2 books in the series, do pick this one up! I can’t wait to see what else happens in the story!
