Hey everyone! Welcome to another STS post,

 This week I was super busy with the kiddos, trying to enjoy the summer and doing fun activities, like setting up a huge waterslide in the backyard. I threw down a huge piece of plastic added water and for even more slippery fun I added soap and it was a blast.
I hope your having a fun-filled summer, too!!

Waiting On Wednesday #1

Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine

Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1)
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

Expected publication: December 11th 2012 by Razorbill

In a land where magic has been forgotten but
peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest is simmering. Three kingdoms grapple for power—brutally transforming their subjects’ lives in the process. Amidst betrayals, bargains, and battles, four young people find their fates forever intertwined:

Cleo: A princess raised in luxury must embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of a magic long thought extinct.

Jonas: Enraged at injustice, a rebel lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.

Lucia: A girl adopted at birth into a royal family discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.

Magnus: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, a firstborn son begins to realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword...

The only outcome that’s certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed

  Why I'm waiting  ~     

    First let's look at the AMAZING cover! I love it, it looks fierce and I love books that showcase females in strong kick ass roles. Hopefully this book will do the cover justice.

Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsidian (Lux, #1)
Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is


Holy-Crap!! Really!!! This is what I was missing???
This book ignited into flames, and is still smoldering my kindle!!
Thank You Jennifer, for writing a book that actually had my heart skip a few beats....


Never, in my wildest dreams would I imagine that I would love to read a book about Aliens.
Little green men do nothing for me, but boy, oh boy, Daemon can sure curl my toes...

Katy just moved into a new town with her mom and next door to a hot guy, Daemon and his friendly sister, Dee.
Dee and Katy become fast friends but Daemon and Katy's relationship is like oil and water.
Daemon comes across as a snarky, arrogant ass, but his reasons behind his attitude toward Katy is warranted, as he only wants to protect his sister, and others like him. Secrets about these two slowly unravel as we learn who and what they are, you'll feel totally different about aliens and you just might fall for this story, and a certain alien!

Of course, there is alot more going on with this story than these two, as we learn about Daemon and his enemies, who are constantly after his kind and are ready to destroy them.
This book is full of secrets, and Daemon's coldness toward Kat at first throws you off, but slowly we learn why.
The tension from these two feels like a combustion about to explode.
He saves Katy on many occasions, but, Katy is definitely not a character who just sits around waiting to be saved. She is strong, loyal, brave, and she does her own saving of lives and kicks butt toward the end!

This book was a great YA read. Loved it.
Read it, it will not disappoint!
Twilight fans will adore this.


“Daemon: I checked out your blog.
Katy: Stalking me again, I see. Do I need to get a restraining order?
Daemon: In your dreams, Kitten. Oh wait, I'm already starring in those, aren't I?
Katy: Nightmares, Daemon. Nightmares.”

“Remind me," he paused, drawing in a stuttered gasp, "to never piss you off again. Christ, are you secretly a ninja?”

“And this is why you don’t want me to be friends with Dee, because you were afraid that I’d find out the truth?”
“That, and you’re a human. Humans are weak. They bring us nothing but trouble.”
My eyes narrowed. “We aren’t weak. And you’re on our planet. How about a little respect, buddy.”
Amusement flickered in his emerald eyes. “Point taken.”

“You look like you're twelve. No. Maybe thirteen, but my sister has this doll that kinda reminds me of you. All big-eyed and vacant

Swimming was the last thing I wanted to do. Drowning him? Maybe.”

Aliens—if they exist—are little green men with big eyes and spindly arms or…or giant insects or something like a lumpy
little creature.”

Daemon let out a loud laugh. “ET?”
“Yes! Like ET, asshole. I’m so glad you find this funny.”

“Because this absolutely insane - the craziest thing I'd ever done. Worse than giving a one-star review, scarier than asking for an interview with an author I'd give my firstborn to eat lunch with, more stupid than kissing Daemon.”

June's Hottest Titles: Giveaway

This month I'm having a giveaway with three hot YA titles for June. One winner will choose one book from below as long as Amazon or Book Depo ships to your address.
Enter below and Good Luck!

Before I Wake (Soul Screamers, #6)
I died on a Thursday-killed by a monster intent on stealing my soul. The good news? He didn't get it. The I died on a Thursday-killed by a monster intent on stealing my soul. The good news? He didn't get it. The bad news? Turns out not even death will get you out of high school...  Covering up her own murder was one thing, but faking life is much harder than Kaylee Cavanaugh expected. After weeks spent "recovering," she's back in school, fighting to stay visible to the human world, struggling to fit in with her friends and planning time alone with her new reaper boyfriend. But to earn her keep in the human world, Kaylee must reclaim stolen souls, and when her first assignment brings her face-to-face with an old foe, she knows the game has changed. Her immortal status won't keep her safe. And this time Kaylee isn't just gambling with her own life....


The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2)

The second thrilling installment in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy spinoff series

Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students--children of the wealthy and powerful--carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Richelle Mead's breathtaking Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive. In this second book, the drama is hotter, the romances are steamier, and the stakes are even higher


SoulboundWhat's worse than being blackmailed to attend a hidden school where you're treated like a second-class citizen? How about nearly getting eaten by a monster when you arrive? Or learning that your soulmate was killed in a centuries-old secret war? And then there's the evil king who's determined to rule the world unless you can stop him...

Meet Kaya, a young woman with the power to heal and the determination to fight. But struggle as she will, she remains tied to three very different men: a hero who has forsaken glory, a tyrannical ruler who wants to use Kaya, and a warrior who's stolen her heart. Kaya learns the hard way that some ties can't be broken...and blood is the strongest bond of all.
