Cover Reveals


Howdy! I'm bringing you an assortment of recent cover reveals today. Instead of doing a separate post for each, I'm posting them all together here. I won't post book descriptions as that will make the post extra long, so I will link to goodreads instead. So here you go! 



I think this is my favourite cover of the series. These are really good books and it looks like disaster is on the horizon in the final novel. I like the darker theme to the cover compared to the jolly beaches on the others. I'm very intrigued! 



Thank you Mira Ink UK for sticking to the original cover designs. I really don't like the minimalist US covers. I think this will really fit in well with the UK copy of The Immortal Rules. Oh and of course I love the colour purple. Good job guys! 



UK Cover. This is one of two covers that feature four people on the front. I hope this isn't going to be a new trend. I think this cover is so so much better than the original cover. This cover has an atmosphere about it, nevertheless I would rather it didn't have the big From the Author of sticker on the front. I prefer the US cover of this though. 



UK Cover. Hmm... I do like this cover alot actually. It doesn't give much away from the story and intrigues the reader. It also fits in well with the other UK covers of all Kings novels. 



Now I freaking love this cover, even more so then the Ink cover. This is the prequel to Ink. I love the purple tones so much and it just works so well. 



US Paperback Cover. This is very different to the original cover but alas it does make sense. It probably works even better than the original as that focused mainly on the council seat but the novel itself is about so much more, especially the small community of Pagford and this is shown well here. I approve! 

7. The Casual Vacancy By J. K. Rowling


UK Paperback cover. Again as I said above, this shows the story so much better. Alas it does seem a bit unrealistic compared the the above and I'm not too sure about the s and u going around the church tower. I like this but prefer the US one. 



UK Cover. This cover fits in so well with Marr's other adult novel Graveminder's UK cover, it's as if they're a matching set not two individual novels. I do like this one though, even if it is slightly cluttered. 



US Cover. Here's the second novel with four people on the front but here it works! I actually really like this cover and the western feel to it, the book itself sounds really interesting too. 

So there you go! Nine covers that have been revealed in the past few weeks. What are your thoughts on the covers? Let me know in the comments.

Top Ten Tuesday (#2)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they decide upon a bookish subject that we then have to choose our top ten. This weeks topic is: Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most.

I have so many books I could recommend but I'm really going to try narrow it down to my favourites. These will be in no particular order. Here we go: 

This series is one of my all time favourites! It has a kick ass heroine in a amazing fantasy world. I just want to jump back into it, if you like fantasy you must read this. 

This book has left such an huge impression on me, it has one emotional kick. 

Another fantasy series that has left me eager to read more. 

This is such a unique dystopian novel, there are no others in it's league. I highly recommend it. It needs more publicity. 

This book is such a masterpiece. It stole my heart and is still holding it hostage. You must read it. 

I only read this recently but it is so damn good. It's got some really fleshed out characters and the novel is based on the life of Charlotte Rose De La Force, intertwined with the Rapunzel fairy tale. I loved the strong feminist views in the novel. 

This is the first book in the Shifters series but I really do recommend them all. If you like urban fantasy you will love these! 

This book is so damn good, the third book in the series Clockwork Princess is perfect. The Infernal Devices series is so much better than The Mortal Instruments. I also love it as it's set in London! 

One of the most promising debut authors of 2012, and I'm still eager awaiting the second novel. This lady has a lot of talent. 

The first book in my all time favourite series. It's about werewolves and it's written so well. I cannot recommend this book and series enough. The series really has changed my life. 

You can find my reviews of most of these books on my review page! 

Well there you go, my Top Ten Books I recommend the most. I would love to hear about yours. Feel free to leave a link to your post in the comments.

NOS4R2 By Joe Hill

NOS4R2
Release Date: Hardcover 30th May 2013, Ebook 30th April 2013
Publisher: Gollancz
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 704
Source: Waterstones Review Copy. 

Synopsis: Summer. Massachusetts.

An old Silver Wraith with a frightening history. A story about one serial killer and his lingering, unfinished business.

Anyone could be next.

We're going to Christmasland...

NOS4A2 is an old-fashioned horror novel in the best sense. Claustrophobic, gripping and terrifying, this is a story that will have you on the edge of the seat while you read, and leaving the lights on while you sleep. With the horrific tale of Charles Manx and his Silver Wraith, Joe Hill has established himself as the premiere horror and supernatural thriller writer of his generation.

Review: NOS4RS. The name of the book itself is enough to send a chill down my spine. And now after reading I truly get the creeps recalling the events of the book. When thinking about this book, the first things that come into my mind are haunting children’s voices singing Christmas carols and sharp needle like teeth. This book is creepy and full of suspense, it’s a classic horror novel in its own right. I really enjoyed how the story progressed and just kept getting better and better, in which I mean creepier. 

The novel is told during many different years. It begins when Vic McQueen is nine years old and has just received a Raleigh bike, she uses it to escape her parent’s heated arguments and ends up on the Shorter Way Bridge. The bridge is old and practically falling apart, with her bike she manages to cross the bridge and ends up miles away finding her mother’s lost bracelet. It is here she begins to discover that when riding her bike across the bridge it will take her where ever she needs to go. The continual use of this though will cause damage as Vic begins to find out. We follow her story as she gets older and her story begins to tangle with that of Charlie Manx. 

Charlie Manx is the owner of the gorgeous Rolls Royce Wraith with the license plate NOS4R2. He is a weird old man who steals children away to his Christmas land where he uses them and drains their youth turning them into monsters. Manx is twisted, he really believes what he is doing is for the best. I don’t want to give too much away about this character but believe me when I say he will be one of those characters that comes back to haunt you at night, and when a car rolls past your window at night, Christmas songs blaring, you’ll think it’s him coming to take you to Christmas land. 

My favourite thing about this book though was the character of Vic McQueen and how much she goes through. She has a really tough life, her parents do not get on and end up splitting up which leaves her dragged through a messy divorce, she believes she’s imaging her bike taking her places, Charlie Manx comes for her and from then on her life is haunted by children’s voice and she lives in fear that one day he will come back. Yes we see her making bad decisions and you can’t help but feel her pain and even root her on. Hill has made one hell of a character that leaves such a large imprint on the reader. 

I don’t want to go into too much detail with this book as there is so much that happens in the 704 pages of the novel. Yes it is one long book but it is worth it to see the next masterpiece Joe Hill has written. NOS4R2 is a creepy novel that will leave you with a twisted mind. If you love horror, then you will need to read this book. On the other hand if you do like Christmas, this novel will taint it for you for the rest of your life. 

Thank you to Gollancz and Waterstones for providing me with a review copy.

Waiting On Wednesday (#15)


Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My chosen upcoming release is:

Zenn Scarlett
Release Date: 7th May 2013
Publisher: Strange Chemistry
Format: Paperback
Pages: 304

Synopsis: Zenn Scarlett is a bright and occasionally a-little-too-smart-for-her-own-good 17-year-old girl training hard to become an exoveterinarian. She specializes in the treatment of exotic alien life forms, mostly large and generally dangerous. Her novice year of training at the Ciscan Cloister Exovet Clinic on Mars was going well - until there are a series of inexplicable animal escapes from the school that Zenn finds herself blamed for. As if this isn't enough to be dealing with, her father vanishes under strange circumstances, and Zenn is worried that she has started hearing the thoughts of the creatures around her... 

With the help of Liam, a towner boy, and Hamish, an alien bug also training at the clinic, Zenn must try to find her father, rescue the animals and unravel the mystery of who is behind the attacks on the school. And all without failing her first year.

After being contacted by the author (who is great by the way!) I have to say that I am really excited for this book and I hope you all are too. Just read that summary. I'm a huge sci-fi fan and as an animal management student, aiming to be a Veterinary Nurse it's even more appealing!

What's your "Waiting on Wednesday" pick this week?

Top Ten Tuesday (#1)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they decide upon a bookish subject that we then have to choose our top ten. This weeks topic is: Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread. 

This is one I think I can do pretty well as my to read pile is HUGE right now! So here we go then: 

Yeah... I still haven't read this after years of having it on my shelf. I will get to it one day though, I must read this classic. 

This book made such a huge impact on the YA community when it was released so of course I bought it the first time i saw it. 

This was a highly anticipated read of mine but alas I still haven't read it.

This sounds so awesome but here it is. 

I bought this when I was having a mad dystopian reading spree but I overworked my brain on all things dystopian at the time but I hope to get to it soon. 

I bought this whole series for such a bargain price but haven't read it yet.

eek! I know I really should have read this by now. 

I want to read this so so badly but it keeps getting pushed down the list due to review books. Sad times. 

Another one of my highly anticipated reads gone unread. 

I wanted to read this ages ago when Melissa was just giving us snippets on twitter but I haven't read it still. The cover slightly puts me off to be honest. 

Well there you go, my Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread. I would love to hear about yours. Feel free to leave a link to your post in the comments.

Blog Tour: Poison By Bridget Zinn

Welcome to this stop on the Poison Blog Tour. This is a very special blog tour as we honor the memory of Bridget Zinn and spread the word about her amazing book. Today I will share with you one of my firsts, and I have chosen to talk to you about my first car. Before I get onto that though, I'm going to give you more information about Bridget and her debut novel.

About Bridget:


Bridget grew up in Wisconsin. She went to the county fair where she met the love of her life, Barrett Dowell. They got married right before she went in for exploratory surgery which revealed she had colon cancer. They christened that summer the "summer of love" and the two celebrated with several more weddings. Bridget continued to read and write until the day she died. Her last tweet was "Sunshine and a brand new book. Perfect." 

Bridget wanted to make people laugh and hoped readers would enjoy spending time with the characters she created. As a librarian/writer she loved books with strong young women with aspirations. She also felt teens needed more humorous reads. She really wanted to write a book with pockets of warmth and happiness and hoped that her readers' copies would show the watermarks of many bath time reads.

You can find out more about Bridget on her website here

About Poison: 

Poison
Release Date: 12th March 2013
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 288

Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she's the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom's future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend. 

But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart…misses. 

Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king's army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she's not alone. She's armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can't stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her? 

Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she's certainly no damsel-in-distress—she's the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.

My First Car: 

First of all I just want to explain that I wanted to talk about something different to the usual, e.g books. Believe me I love them but my love for them has gone on forever, practically all my life so I can't actually pin point a first. Instead I chose my first car. Driving in general for me gives me such freedom and I love being able to just go and get away whenever I want or even need to. So the big question after you pass your test or in my case before, what will you have for your first car? 

This in itself is a hard decision, you want something that's going to be safe and reliable but also something that's to your taste and style. You want to get have the feeling that such a powerful vehicle is your own. I did look at many cars online but there was only one type that I really wanted.

My mother and father when they were younger had the old style Mini as their first car and all I can say is, that's what I wanted too. Yes I knew there were many cheaper options out there that were brand new, but they weren't going to be as safe as an used Mini. 

So just before my 17th birthday we went to a Mini dealer near me and I found my car! It was an 05 silver Mini with racing stripes and a union jack on the roof, and I could get it for the same price as a brand new car of another make and model. Yes it was second hand and used but it was gorgeous and it could be all mine. I had to get my dads approval first but a week later we went and put down a deposit. 

It's been exactly a year since we bought it and I love it so much. I passed my driving test last year and now I can go wherever I please (As long as I have petrol that is!) The thing is until you can drive and you have your own car sitting in the drive, waiting for you, you do not understand the freedom and thrill that comes with driving. I love driving but if you'd told me that two years ago I would have laughed in your face. What makes it all better is, I have the best car, the one I'd always wanted, for my first car. Yes my parent's probably worried I was going to damage it but they trusted me to keep it safe and I have. It's like my baby and it always will be, even in 15 years or more, it will still be my favourite car in the world. After all, your firsts are the ones that will stay with you forever. 

Well there you go! Do you have any firsts you wish to share, leave them in the comments! I would love to know more! Thank you all for stopping by and please help promote both Bridget and her amazing book, Poison. Her friends, family, Authors, Bloggers and I cannot thank you enough for supporting Bridget, and helping make her dream come true. Thank you! 

You can help spread the word by the using the #Poison hashtag on twitter.

Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: The Demon Child By Anila Hoxha


Welcome to this stop on the Demon Child blog tour! Read Write and Read Some More is very pleased to host the talented author Anila Hoxha. Today I have a review of the debut novel and also a International giveaway for 10 copies of the novel! 

The Demon Child
Series: The Cursed Necklace #1
Release Date: 17th February 2013
Format: ebook
Pages: 70

Synopsis: After her mysterious disappearance, everyone thought that the six years old, Anne Marie Bordoleau, was one of the victims of the “animal” attacks that were terrorizing New Orleans. Only her big sister, Rose, thought otherwise, because of the terrible visions she had at night where Anne called her for help. Looking for Anne does not prove to be easy. There are secrets revealed, ancient prophecies, and legends. It’s a dark world, where even angels can fall.

How can Rose save her sister from the evil, if her sister is the evil itself?

Review: I was contacted by the author to review her novel for her upcoming blog tour and it sounded really interesting so I jumped at the chance. The novel itself is short but it’s fast paced and keeps the reader amused and looking for clues. I really enjoyed how unique the idea was and I would love to see the world Anila has created expanded more in the future. There’s a lot of talent in this writer and you can see that just from this short debut novel. 

The Demon Child begins when Rose receives an antique necklace from a crush. Rose just leaves the necklace on the side, declining the gift. This necklace holds an old mysterious power and one that is waiting to be unleashed. When Rose’s younger sister, Anne comes home from school she takes the necklace upstairs and puts it on. With a scream she disappears, the power in the necklace is finally unleashed after hundreds of years. A demon takes over Anne’s body and uses it to kill the innocent and get revenge for her mother’s murder. Rose is left distraught and alone, she gathers her friends in a search for her sister but before long things get even more complicated especially with the introduction of Julian a mortal angel. 

I really enjoyed reading about these characters. Yes the book is short but we still got to know the fleshed out characters and root for them. Rose was a great motherly figure for her younger sister and you really saw the power of love throughout the novel. She was so determined to save her sister and wouldn’t stop despite all the dangers. Rose was an aspiring writer but since her mother died she had to look after her sister and that’s all she has time for. She put all of her dreams aside to care for her younger sister. Anne loves her sister also and we see her innocents and vulnerability really put to the test when evil takes over her body. Oh and Julian the mortal angel, he was hilarious and it was interesting to see how he interacts with mere humans. 

The world Anila Hoxha has created with all seven different monsters is brilliant. I really wanted to see more of it and I hope this will be confronted in the next books in the series. Honestly the part in the novel where the vampire speaks to the dark shadows was very strong for me and I liked how strongly described it was. The whole background on this world was so fleshed out. 

For a debut novel The Demon Child is really good. What’s also really interesting is that English isn’t the author’s native language, but the novel just flows so well. Yes there are some parts that could have been worded better but hey that’s not such a huge problem. With a bit more editing I’m sure they would have been caught and been corrected. Apart from that, for a short novel this is perfect. It doesn’t bog you down with unwanted details, it gets straight to the point and keeps the reader engrossed. I really recommend that you give this book a try! 


About the Author:

You would probably find her disguised in a dark corner of her library, reading a book, trying not to make any noise, afraid that she might disturb Dracula, who is hiding at the third floor of her house in Albania. Now, don’t even ask about how he came from his castle in Romania, to Anila’s house. 

Anila is a horror writer, a bookworm and Dracula’s number 1 fan. When she was little, she wanted to be a vampire hunter, but now that she found out the world was so boring and without vampires, she decided to be a vampire writer. Her book “The Demon Child” it’s something between gothic horror, dark fantasy, urban legends, paranormal romance and mythology.

Pages: 352

Synopsis: This is the fourth installment in the thrilling, action-packed New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series!

They must master their Legacies and learn to work together as a team, or they won’t stand a chance. The battle may have been lost, but the war for Earth’s survival is far from over.

Hmm I'm not too sure about this cover, not only do the bugs really creep me out but it just doesn't match the others which is rather disappointing. 


Cold Blooded
Series: Jessica McClain #3
Release Date: 8th October 2013
Publisher: Orbit
Format: Paperback
 Pages: 320

Synopsis: With only a short to recover from their arduous journey, it's time for Jessica to honor the oath she swore to the icy Vampire Queen. With Rourke at her side, and her team along for the ride, Jessica is confident she will be able to sail through this job without getting herself killed. 

What Jessica doesn't know is the Queen has plans to steal Jessica's powers for herself. 

After arriving at Tepes, the annual vampire gala, things go from bad to worse quickly. The 550th celebration, in honor of Vlad the Impaler, is nothing like she imagined. It's complete ritualistic chaos. The vampires are loose and completely out of control. After being locked in a steel casket, chained in the dungeon and being snacked on repeatedly, Jessica has had enough.

The Vampire Queen becomes the least of Jessica's worries when the rebel faction of werewolves amass for a brutal attack. An all-out war erupts in the Queen's quarters, and the vicious skirmish forces the vamps and Jessica to fight on the same team. 

Saving the Queen's life and gaining a Debt of Life is just the icing on the cake.

But Jessica has no idea how soon she'll have to cash it in . . .

Wow! This is my favorite cover of the series, it's just so kick ass and cold! Also I love the building in the background!

Wild Justice

To help her find her equilibrium, her mentor, Jack, brings her a gift: the location and new identity of the predator who killed her cousin and disappeared after the case against him failed.

Vengeance, justice? With the predator in her sights, nothing seems more right, more straightforward, more easy. But finding justice is never as simple as it seems.


I am so damn excited for this book and the cover is just so simple that it doesn't reveal anything about whats inside. It does though connect well with the other covers of the series. 

Here are all the covers together: 


Well there you go! I'm really excited for these books. What do you guys think of the covers? Let me know in the comments!

Cover Reveal: Demon Derby By Carrie Harris


Hey guys! This cover reveal is for an awesome book by the incredible Carrie Harris. I've been anxiously awaiting this book for so long now as I know it's about a subject very close to Carrie. I also won the chance to name a character in the novel and therefore I'm dying to see who or even what she is. And now I get the chance to reveal the cover to you readers. Here we go: 


Demon Derby
Author: Carrie Harris 
Publisher: Random House 
Genre: Paranormal 
Age Group: Young Adult 
Expected release: March 2014

Synopsis: Casey kicked cancer’s ass. Now a demon wants to kick hers... 

Casey hates being known as the girl who survived cancer. She wants people to treat her like her old self, fearless and strong. And after a creepy encounter with a crazy guy in an alley, Casey is all about reclaiming her power. 

So when she has a chance to try out for the Apocalypsies roller derby team, she jumps on it. Being a derby girl would prove that she doesn’t need anybody’s pity. It doesn’t hurt that Michael, the team manager, is almost unnaturally hot. Which makes sense when Casey finds out that he’s not even human. 

Michael’s got a secret: he trains demon hunters. That crazy guy in the alley? Demon. And the fact that Casey went head to head with evil and lived makes her a threat to demonkind. Casey thought she’d already fought and won the battle of her lifetime. But it’s only beginning... 

From Carrie Harris, author of Bad Taste in Boys and Bad Hair Day, comes a knockout new read for anyone facing their own demons—inside and out.

Isn't that one kick ass cover? Eeek, I cant wait to get my hands on a copy now! 

About the Author: 

Carrie Harris is the author of BAD TASTE IN BOYS and BAD HAIR DAY. Her husband is a cancer survivor and a ninja doctor, and her three kids are already in training to fight evil someday.
