Synopsis:

High school reporter Sloane Masterson knows she has one helluva story when she witnesses hottie Hayden Lancaster bending forks with his mind.

Like any good journalist, Sloane sets out to uncover the truth, even if it includes a little stalking. When the superhuman feats start to pile up and the undeniable heat rises between them, Hayden has no choice but to reveal his secret: he’s an alien hybrid.

They’re as different as night and day—she’s a curvy, purple-haired, horror junkie and he’s a smoking hot, antisocial, brainiac—yet the intense fascination between them refuses to go away. Even at Hayden’s insistence that dating each other is “off limits” and crazy dangerous, their fiery attraction threatens to go supernova.

Now Sloane’s dealing with creepy government agents, über snobby extraterrestrials, and a psycho alien ex-girlfriend out for revenge. After a crash course on the rules of interstellar dating, Sloane must decide if their star-crossed romance is worth risking her own life...

My rating: ★★★☆☆

When I first heard about this book, I knew I needed to read it. I mean, a purple-haired girl who loves horror, plus a hot alien boy? Yes please! And it just sounded like a lot of fun! I was very excited to start it and had high hopes for it... way, way, high hopes.

Review: MILA 2.0 by Debra Driza

MILA 2.0 (MILA 2.0, #1)
Title: MILA 2.0

Series: MILA 2.0 (#1)

Prequel novella: Origins: The Fire

Author: Debra Driza

Publication date: March 2013

Published by: Katherine Tegen Books

Source: Borrowed from library

Add it to your Goodreads shelf

Buy it: Amazon | Book Depository

Synopsis:

Mila 2.0 is the first book in an electrifying sci-fi thriller series about a teenage girl who discovers that she is an experiment in artificial intelligence.

Mila was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was a girl living with her mother in a small Minnesota town. She was supposed to forget her past—that she was built in a secret computer science lab and programmed to do things real people would never do.

Now she has no choice but to run—from the dangerous operatives who want her terminated because she knows too much and from a mysterious group that wants to capture her alive and unlock her advanced technology. However, what Mila’s becoming is beyond anyone’s imagination, including her own, and it just might save her life.

Mila 2.0 is Debra Driza’s bold debut and the first book in a Bourne Identity-style trilogy that combines heart-pounding action with a riveting exploration of what it really means to be human. Fans of I Am Number Four will love Mila for who she is and what she longs to be—and a cliffhanger ending will leave them breathlessly awaiting the sequel.

My rating: ★★★★★

Mila is your normal, average teenage girl who recently experienced a horrible tragedy: She was in a terrible house fire that, unfortunately, killed her father and has left holes in her memory. Mila and her mom move to a new town for a fresh start, until the facade that is Mila's "normal" life is shattered. Until Mila finds out that she is not human. She is an android built by a secret division of the military, and her creators want her back... bad! Except they want to use Mila as a weapon. Mila is shocked by all this, I mean she feels like any other human being... like a normal girl! But her creator doesn't care about that. They will do anything to get her back.

Synopsis:

So far, Eve's summer vacation has been uneventful, but when her grandparents—traveling all the way from the monster world known as Gravesville—appear at her doorstep, she learns that the URNS Director has gone missing. Worse, a new director, bent on destroying humans, has taken over URNS.

Eve and her family are no longer safe in the human world, and as they race to escape this new threat, Eve stumbles into a trap, which forces her back to Gravesville along with her family and friends. But once there, everything goes adorably wrong, and her best chance to get out of this mess is to seek out The Book of Shivers and the elusive author Sedrick Creach—the only creature who knows the secrets of the Nightmare Books. Unfortunately for Eve, searching for Sedrick and the next book in the series will reveal uncomfortable details about her own murky past.

Once again, Eve and her friends find themselves on an incredible adventure—one that involves underground battles with bloodthirsty creatures, a lightning-fueled train, and some unexpected new allies.

Hilarious and bone-chilling, this third book continues the story of an unlikely hero trying to save not one, but two worlds … This time around, though, Eve's not sure she can even save herself.

My rating: ★★★★☆

In Eve Hallows and the Book of Shivers Eve has to find the third book in the Nightmare series, the Book of Shivers, but to do that she'll need the help of the author himself. But first thing's first, she has to find the author, Sedrick Creach. On top of all that, Eve finds herself in some serious trouble in the real world! With the help of her human friends, Eve sets out to find Sedrick and the book to save not one, but TWO worlds!

Synopsis:

Things are getting desperate for Maya and her friends. Hunted by the powerful St. Clouds and now a rival Cabal as well, they're quickly running out of places to hide. And with the whole world thinking they died in a helicopter crash, it's not like they can just go to the authorities for help.

All they have is the name and number of someone who might be able to give them a few answers. Answers to why they're so valuable, and why their supernatural powers are getting more and more out of control.

But Maya is unprepared for the truths that await her. And now, like it or not, she'll have to face down some demons from her past if she ever hopes to move on with her life. Because Maya can't keep running forever.

Old secrets are revealed and unexpected characters make a surprising return in this stunning conclusion to Kelley Armstrong's New York Times bestselling Darkness Rising trilogy.

My rating: ★★★★★

This book was just amazing! I always love getting back into a familiar story, and one I really enjoy being in, at that. I've been highly anticipating this one and it did not disappoint! I'm just really sad that it's over :(
