I have nothing but praise for the writing, the characters, the plot, every little thing. If you haven't read this book yet, I'm telling you right now to please stop making the same mistake that I made for over a year! Read. This. Book. ASAP. It is exceptional!
I was a bit hesitant to read The Selection after... the fact that this book is described as The Bachelor meets The Hunger Games, but... I was pleasantly surprised! I actually really enjoyed this book!
Debauchery Club. Steampunk. Dystopia. Hot boys. Are you sold yet? I sure as hell was from the moment that I first read the synopsis! And I can say, without a second thought, that this book lived up to and surpassed all of my expectations!
...I was so sad when I first read the title of this book because I thought that it meant that it was going to be the end of an awesome series, but luckily the title is misleading! I adore this series and everything about it, and The Last Echo was no exception.
I finally decided to pick up Desires of the Dead and am so glad that I did; it was such a fantastic read!... Overall, I loved this sequel! It was very well written and I loved the mystery and suspense in the plot...
The Evernight series was one of the first that I began reading when I got into young adult books about four years ago, so I'm really sad to see it come to an end, but I've really enjoyed reading the series and Afterlife was no different!

So, I don't know about you guys, but for the past year or so I have seen a million covers popping up that show a "from behind" view of the cover models! This definitely seems to be a really popular trend on book covers at the moment, and from what I've seen, I like it! There are some cover trends that I'm obsessed with, namely the gorgeous, billowing dress trend, and I can't say that this is one that I absolutely adore, but it's definitely not bad! In some of my previous Cover Trends posts, I've mentioned that I don't like it when a cover shows too many details of the cover model's face (presuming that the cover model is posing as a character from the book), because I find that, as much as I don't want it to, it has the potential to impact the way that I imagine a character to look as I read. What I really like about the "from behind" trend is that it gives you a glimpse of a character, yet seing as you don't (often) see a face, you're able to imagine what a character looks like without having any preexisting images in your head.
This is definitely a trend that I'd like to see stick around for a while longer. Apart from what I explained above, I'm not quite sure what exactly it is that I like about this trend, all I know is that there is something about it that appeals to me!
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My teaser this week is from The Blessed by Tonya Hurley! I just started this one, so I can't really tell you what I think of it so far. I've heard some mixed reviews, but I hope I like it! I also really like the cover; it's kind of creepy, but awesome!

"Why you would go to such lengths, I'll never understand," Martha said, trying to fix Agnes's bandage.
"No, you never will," Agnes said. She pulled her arm away. "I'm not afraid for my future. Not afraid to follow my heart."
