Video Time:The Fray- Run For Your Life

Hey guys! My favourite band ever is the amazing The Fray and I don't think that enough people know who they are! So here is their newest video. 'Run For Your Life' is from their new album 'Scars and Stories'. It reminds me of The Hunger Games! Enjoy!

Cover comparison- Divergent by Veronica Roth

I recently saw a new cover of Divergent in my local Easons store. I want to know which cover you prefer! I prefer the blue cover!

ARC review: What Happens Next by Colleen Clayton

Publisher: Poppy
Publish date: October 9th 2012
How can you talk about something you can't remember?

Before the ski trip, sixteen-year-old Cassidy "Sid" Murphy was a cheerleader, a straight-A student, and a member of a solid trio of best friends. When she ends up on a ski lift next to handsome local college boy, Dax Windsor, she's thrilled; but Dax takes everything from Sid - including a lock of her perfect red curls - and she can't remember any of it.

Back home and alienated by her friends, Sid drops her college prep classes and takes up residence in the A/V room with only Corey "The Living Stoner" Livingston for company. But as she gets to know Corey (slacker, baker, total dreamboat), Sid finds someone who truly makes her happy. Now, if she can just shake the nightmares and those few extra pounds, everything will be perfect... or so she thinks.

What Happens Next is an interesting look into the side of life that I have not come across in any books that I have read. It follows the story of Cassidy 'Sid' Murphy and how she deals with an event that happens to her early on in the book. It was interesting to see how she dealt with the events of the ski trip and how she creates a fairytale story of what happened. At points I felt like shouting at her to tell but then I realised that she is doing what so many people do and that is keeping it quiet. I think that the way she dealt with it was very realistic and I think it made her more understandable as a character and allowed the reader to connect with her and feel sympathy towards her. The fact that she deals with it in the manner in which she did made the book so much more interesting to read. I felt really sorry for her and I have to say that I was rather emotional at times during this book.

I love the romance in the book. It is cute and realistic unlike so many others I could actually believe that they liked eachother. Corey is an amazing character and I love that he shows alot of support towards Sid.

I took my time reading this book so that I could savour every single word.I really couldn't believe that it was a DEBUT novel! It is an amazing debut novel and a MUST read!

Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's....

I love this book! I really enjoyed reading it and was really sad that it was over.

The first thing that had me with this book was the story line. It is a new twist on the Hades and Persephone story. The story line reminded me a bit of Abandon by Meg Cabot and since I loved that book I loved this book too! Its similar but doesn't verge on copying so thats good.

I really loved the main character, Nikki. She was an awsome main character as she really had things that she needed to come to terms with and I think that she handled things well and realistically. Having been gone for six months alot has changed and I'm glad that Brodi Ashton did flash backs of the events that took place before Nikki went to the Everneath so that we can get a taste of how much things have changed since Nikki left. It also allowed us to see how much Jack changed and how much Nikki leaving affected him. I'm in awe with Nikki that she would rather go to the tunnels that feed off of people. I think its that fact that makes me like her so much.

I really feel for Jack as he loved Nikki and she suddenly dissappears for six months. He is a very realistic character and it helps the reader connect with the story. He goes through a full circle of emotions in the book and it is clear that he still cares deeply for Nikki.

Cole is an Everliving and the other main character in the book. I like him but not as much as I like Jack. The things he does really makes the reader wonder if he cares for Nikki or if he is just using her. There is parts when I feel sorry for Cole but they are few.
