Until I Die (Revenants, #2)Kate and Vincent have overcome the odds and at last they are together in Paris, the city of lights and love.

As their romance deepens there’s one question they can’t ignore: How are they supposed to be together if Vincent can’t resist sacrificing himself to save others? Although Vincent promises that he’ll do whatever it takes to lead a normal life with Kate, will that mean letting innocent people die? When a new and surprising enemy reveals itself, Kate realizes that even more may be at stake—and that Vincent’s immortality is in jeopardy.


I love this series, and I love Vincent (and Jules and Ambrose).

For a second book, this was a pretty good read. I didn't like it as much as the first one, but it was still enjoyable. I think what made me fall head over heels for Die For Me was Vincent. He was swoon worthy with his old school charm. But he didn't seem to be as present in Until I Die. Until I Die was mostly about Kate finding her place among the Revenants and with Vincent.

So, with that being said, I was a bit disappointed that it didn't have more Vincent. But, there was plenty of Jules and Ambrose to make up for that. I do enjoy those two so much. Georgia also had more presence in this book, which was nice. She still felt a bit flat, but she was enjoyable for a minor character.

Unfortunately, I figured the plot of Die For Me out around page 75. That didn't keep me from reading it, of course. I just wasn't at all surprised by the "twist" ending. I wish Amy Plum would have done a better job disguising the snake in the grass. She did do a nice job of making that ending so gripping that I am on the edge of my seat waiting for book 3: If I Should Die.

If you haven't read this series, you should. It's a fun read. Vincent and the other Revenants will have you proclaiming your love for them as your new book boyfriends. If you aren't a fan of paranormal romances, stay away. This is not for you.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828

Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.
