Just Finished and Loved:

All Broke Down (Rusk University #2) by Cora Carmack 5 Stars!   Oh em gee…This is a literal OMG.…and from page one on…I WAS A GONER.  Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.  Environmental issues, civil rights, education–you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail for a few hours, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and not at all her type, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.  Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before–fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.  Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.  Chelsea’s Review

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury 5 Stars!  The writing was absolutely breathtaking and beautiful. The forbidden romance between Aladdin and Zahra was stunning and I could not breathe when I was reading about one of their secret moments.  She is the most powerful Jinni of all. He is a boy from the streets. Their love will shake the world…  When Aladdin discovers Zahra’s jinni lamp, Zahra is thrust back into a world she hasn’t seen in hundreds of years — a world where magic is forbidden and Zahra’s very existence is illegal. She must disguise herself to stay alive, using ancient shape-shifting magic, until her new master has selected his three wishes. 

  But when the King of the Jinn offers Zahra a chance to be free of her lamp forever, she seizes the opportunity—only to discover she is falling in love with Aladdin. When saving herself means betraying him, Zahra must decide once and for all: is winning her freedom worth losing her heart?  As time unravels and her enemies close in, Zahra finds herself suspended between danger and desire in this dazzling retelling of Aladdin from acclaimed author Jessica Khoury Chelsea’s Review

Reading Next:

Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers #1) by Brenda Drake – Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels-magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books-rescue them from a demonic hound.  Jumping into some of the world’s most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik’s world and her own, before both are destroyed.

Upcoming Releases:

The Great Hunt (The Great Hunt #1) by Wendy Higgins (Releases 3/08) – When a monstrous beast attacks in Eurona, desperate measures must be taken. The king sends a proclamation to the best and bravest hunters: whoever kills the creature will win the hand of his daughter Princess Aerity as a reward. The princess recognizes her duty but cannot bear the idea of marrying a stranger—she was meant to marry for love—until a brooding local hunter, Paxton Seabolt, catches her attention. And while there’s no denying the fiery chemistry between them, Princess Aerity feels that Paxton’s mysteriousness is foreboding, maybe even dangerous.  Paxton is not the marrying type. Nor does he care much for spoiled royals and their arcane laws. He is determined to keep his focus on the task at hand—ridding the kingdom of the beast—but the princess continues to surprise him, and the secrets he’s buried begin to surface against his wishes.

    • The story of our lives! I created a shelf on goodreads to keep track of all of the books I either have in paperback/hardback or on my Kindle, and now I regret it. It makes me feel guilty anytime I purchase new books, yet I still do lol.

  2. Ooh, Nowhere But Here is on sale? I will have to buy that. it s on my TBR list. I also can’t wait to start The Forbidden Wish. Great post, Jen! 🙂

    • Thank you, Jess! I just realized that I hadn’t purchased it on Friday, after making this post, since it’s on my to-read list too. Not sure how I missed that, but now it isn’t on sale anymore. Boo. Hopefully it will go on sale again! Ohhh, have fun stepping into that world and meeting Aladdin and Zahra!
