Summary:
Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still. When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos. Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What’s more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own. Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length . . . everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world. . . . and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

My Review:
The only reason the book got 3 stars is because 1- No one can beat Jace!; 2- the begining was sooo dry for some reason to me! I mean, so much happens right off the bat, I didnt get into it that much till half way thrugh. This book though is very fast paced and for any followers of Mrs.Clare , they will completely enjoy it. The victorian scene with such deteiled charaters and suprising events and shocking secrets will entrap anyone in its pages. Plus a love triangle that doesnt know its a love trinagle is just to yummy! Lol! Its got blood, kissing, lies, and robots... How could you not like it? c=

Excerpt:
“You know," Gabriel said, "there was a time I thought we could be friends, Will."

"There was a time I thought I was a ferret," Will said, "but that turned out to be the opium haze. Did you know it had that effect? Because I didn't.”


Cover:
Neat, but not how I picture Will...I wish Jem would have been on the cover x)

Title:
Very much ties in with the book which I like

Extras:
Llisten to "The Section Quartet" radio on pandora; it really tunes you into the book!

Veronica Roth's young adult Divergent trilogy launches with a captivating adventure about love and loyalty playing out under most extreme circumstances.
My Review:
Ok when I bought this book , I was completely distracted because that day I met my boyfriend =) So after letting this book sit on my shelf for 3 months I thought I'd read it ! I went blindly into its pages and came out st-st-sstunned; this book is just WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. I couldn't get enough! Sometimes the writing would be a tad dry but with all the twists, secrets and plots you really dont give a crap. This concept of the world is intriguing and mind blowing. The characters were all different and harshly beautiful. I have no clue how I'm going to make it through this series with only 3 more books AND have to wait THREE YEARS for the last book. The wait might kill me but I have to read this whole series. You should too.
PS- WAY better then the hunger games btw!
Excerpt:
“I might be in love with you." He smiles a little. "I'm waiting until I'm sure to tell you, though.”
Cover:
So freaking cool! And once you read the book you'll get it ;)

Prada and Prejudice


Name: Prada and Prejudice
Author:
Pages: 238
Start Date: October 2nd, 2011
Finish Date: October 3rd, 2011
Type: Lite Historical teen romance-y
Status: Library
Rating:

Summary:
To impress the popular girls on a high school trip to London, klutzy Callie buys real Prada heels. But trying them on, she trips, conks her head, and wakes up in the year 1815! There Callie meets Emily, who takes her in, mistaking her for a long-lost friend. As she spends time with Emily's family, Callie warms to them, particularly to Emily's cousin Alex, a hottie and a duke, if a tad arrogant.
But can Callie save Emily from a dire engagement, and win Alex's heart, before her time in the past is up?
More Cabot than Ibbotson, Prada and Prejudice is a high-concept romantic comedy about finding friendship and love in the past in order to have happiness in the present.


My Review:
This book was cute and quite a fast read but it wasnt all sugar and spice....
The whole premise was fantastic but I wanted more detail and for her and Alex to get it onnnn ;D (just kidding)
In some ways she was way to old to be merely 15 and in some cases she acted 12; not thinking and just saying.
If I was in the situation Callie found herself in I think I would've handled much MUCH better.

Also I loved the shoes!
But all in all this was a cute, fun, and fast read =)

Excerpt:
“What do you mean, ruined?"
From the way Emily swallows slowly, you'd think we were talking about smoking crack. "Compromised. By...by another man."
"Oh!" I say, too loudly. "You mean, if the girl's not a virgin, the guy won't marry her?"
She nods, her eyes wide, as if being a non-virgin is akin to being an ax-murder.” 


Cover:
So cute! :D

Title:
Kinda cute, tying in the shoes and an old book.

Extras:
Better Red Shoes ;)
Cool place!

Summary:
Sixteen-year-old Miranda Merchant is great at science. . .and not so great with boys. After major drama with her boyfriend and (now ex) best friend, she's happy to spend the summer on small, mysterious Selkie Island, helping her mother sort out her late grandmother's estate.There, Miranda finds new friends and an island with a mysterious, mystical history, presenting her with facts her logical, scientific mind can't make sense of. She also meets Leo, who challenges everything she thought she knew about boys, friendship. . .and reality. Is Leo hiding something? Or is he something that she never could have imagined?

My Review:
This book for me wasn't "all that" sadly. I think the characters, mother and daughter especially needed to grow up. Also there was just to much mystery and not nearly enough answers. This whole story could have been easily a short story. The author desperately needs to make another book other wise I will feel like it was a waste to read this. On the good sides, I loved some of the folklore and stories and the twisted secrets. Overall its an enjoyable summer read.

Excerpt:
“Summer-induced stupidity.That was the diagnosis...”

Cover:
Veryyy cool, a little abstract. obviously the people are gorgeous but i cant tell whats going on. Definitely a cover to stare at lol

Title:
Ohhh very nice and original. Love it!
