Product Details Reading Level: YA Pages: 292 Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books ISBN: 9780061986505 Source: ARC from publisher in exchange for an honest review


Celeste Parker is used to hearing scary stories about werewolves—Legend's Run is famous for them. She's used to everything in the small town until Brandon Maddox moves to Legend's Run and Celeste finds herself immediately drawn to the handsome new student. But when, after an unnerving visit with a psychic, she encounters a pack of wolves and gorgeous, enigmatic Brandon, she must discover whether his transformation is more than legend or just a trick of the shadows in the moonlight.
Her best friends may never forgive her if she gives up her perfect boyfriend, Nash, for Brandon, who's from the wrong side of town. But she can't deny her attraction or the strong pull he has on her. Brandon may be Celeste's hero, or he may be the most dangerous creature she could encounter in the woods of Legend's R…

The Best Book Ever

Coranne (or Amanda C.) from Short and Sweet Reviews is starting a new weekly feature called "The Best Book Ever." Each week, different bloggers (some stay the same each week) will be "facing off" Food Network style to tell you why their choice of book is the best one in the genre. Each week a different topic will be featured.

This week's topic... FAIRIES! I got all excited about the topic, but then I realized I haven't read that many good fairy books. If this was a post about the worst fairy books I've read, I would have a long list. As much as I love my pixies, I haven't found many books that I've enjoyed. It's tragic.I thought long and hard about which book I would feature this week. Ultimately, I decided to go with a book that was released last month. It is a fairy book, but an uncommon fairy tale (no pun intended). I chose this one because it was surprising and not an all out glittery wand and fairy dust kind of story.

Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
I had the pleasure of reading an ARC of Between the Sea and Sky this year, which made me an instant fan of Jaclyn Dolamore. Since then I have read Magic Under Glass, and am happy to say there is a sequel to the book! Obviously, I'm excited about that. This week, my WoW post is about the sequel to Magic Under Glass, Magic Under Stone. I am such a sucker for a fairy tale. Until then, I am patiently waiting for April 2012!
