In My Mailbox (2) and Dark Days signing!!

  So this past weekend I went to the best thing since sliced bread....THE DARK DAYS OF SUPERNATURAL TOUR in Lansing Michigan.  This was my first time and I meet a lot of great people.  I am so happy that I was able to go and I can not wait until the next signing that I will be able to go to. :)

Any who on with the show!!


  While I was at he signing I got some really AMAZING deals and meet some really AMAZING authors! 

 The authors that were on the tour were 

Veronica Roth- Divergent

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five fractions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue- Candor (the Honest), Abnegation (the Selfless), Dauntless ( the brave), Amity (the Peaceful), and Erudite ( the Intelligent).  On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives.  For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is- she can't have both.  So she makes a choice that surprises everyone including herself.

  I am really excited about this book!  I actually already started this book and I can't put it down!  It was really hard to stop to be able to do this post.  

Aprilynn Pike- Spells

 She was actually on tour for her other book Illusions but I bought spells while I was there because that is the book that I am on. :)

Although Laurel has come to accept her true identity as a faerie, she refuses to turn her back on her human life- and especially her boyfriend, David- to return to the faerie world.  But when she is summoned to Avalon, Laurel's feelings for the charismatic faerie sentry Tamani are undeniable.  She is forced to make a choice- a choice that could break her heart. 

  I loved Wings! I read that book in like 15 hours and every part was amazing! She was such a great person to meet and talked too.  I can't wait to get my hands on this book and start reading it!

Josephine Angelini- Starcrossed

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.
As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.

  This book looks amazing! The way she described this book just makes me want to start it right now! :)

Ellen Schreiber- Vampire Kisses the Beginning

The mansion on top of Benson Hill has stood empty for years.  But one day it seems to be occupied, and its mysterious, handsome in habitant Alexander Sterling becomes the source of much talk around town.  Raven, a vampire-obsessed Goth-girl who has always considered herself an outsider in "Dullsville" is determined to uncover the truth surrounding the secretive Alexander.  As she gets to know him, and their spark intensifies.  Raven finds herself in some unanticipated situations.

  This book actually has the first three books in it and I have finished the first 2.  And they were both fantastic!

  I also got my hands on The Goddess Test  By: Aimee Carter, which I met her and got my book signed :)!

It's always been just Kate and her mom- and her mother is dying.  Her last wish?  To move back to her childhood home.  So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.  Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing.  He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld- and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.  Kate is sure he's crazy- until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead.  Now saving her mother seems crazily possible.  If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride and a goddess.  If she fails......

  The reviews I have read about this book makes me think this book is amazing! I am going to keep this book near by.

Melissa De La Cuz- The Van Alen Legacy

With the stunning revelation surrounding Bliss's true identity comes the growing threat of the sinister Silver Bloods. Once left to live the glamorous life in New York City, the Blue Bloods now find themselves in an epic battle for survival. Not to worry, love is still in the air for the young vampires of the Upper East Side. Or is it? Jack and Schuyler are over. Oliver's brokenhearted. And only the cunning Mimi seems to be happily engaged. 

Claudia Gray- Stargazer

Evernight Academy: an exclusive boarding school for the most beautiful, dangerous students of all—vampires. Bianca, born to two vampires, has always been told her destiny is to become one of them.
But Bianca fell in love with Lucas—a vampire hunter sworn to destroy her kind. They were torn apart when his true identity was revealed, forcing him to flee the school.
Although they may be separated, Bianca and Lucas will not give each other up. She will risk anything for the chance to see him again, even if it means coming face-to-face with the vampire hunters of Black Cross—or deceiving the powerful vampires of Evernight. Bianca's secrets will force her to live a life of lies.
Yet Bianca isn't the only one keeping secrets. When Evernight is attacked by an evil force that seems to target her, she discovers the truth she thought she knew is only the beginning....-Goodreads
