Hello beloved readers! I’ve had the busiest weekend ever so I haven’t much time to post. I’m going to consolidate my IMM and It’s Monday! posts. I promise I’ll be around to some of your blogs when I get some time to sit down.

Hallowed
(Unearthly #2)
by Cynthia Hand

For months part-angel Clara Gardner trained to face the raging forest fire from her visions and rescue the alluring and mysterious Christian Prescott from the blaze. But nothing could prepare her for the fateful decisions she would be forced to make that day, or the startling revelation that her purpose—the task she was put on earth to accomplish—is not as straightforward as she thought. Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend, Tucker, Clara struggles to make sense of what she was supposed to do the day of the fire. And, as she is drawn further into the world of part angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, Clara learns of the terrifying new reality that she must face: Someone close to her will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.

The Devil’s Elixir
(Templar #3)
by Raymond Khoury
read by Richard Farrone

What if there was an herb, previously lost to history in the jungles of Central America, capable of inducing an experience so momentous it might shake the very foundations of Western civilization?

What if powerful forces on both sides of the law got wind of that herb, and launched a violent, uncompromising pursuit to be the first to exploit it?

And what if FBI agent Sean Reilly and his girlfriend, Tess Chaykin, were, unknowingly, the only two people who could keep the lid on this existential Pandora’s box, one that’s capable of destabilizing the world?

I actually haven’t read any of the books in this series prior to this one, but I’ve had no trouble getting into the characters and story. In fact, I think I’ll go back and read the first two sometime.

Up Next…

Moonlight and Oranges by Elise Stephens
The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder
I’ve actually already read a chapter of Moonlight and Oranges. It’s not quite what I was expecting, but I’m still excited.

  4. Awesome IMM and the Kobo Vox looks cool. I have had a Kindle for a couple of years and got a generic tablet (which is what I asked for) for Christmas and I'm enjoying it so far. You received some books for review that I am wanting. And I have The Devil's Elixir on my tbr pile. I have read the first two books in the series and love Raymond Khoury. I hope you enjoy the book. I also bought some of the same books as you as well, but forgot to list my bought books on my IMM since they went straight to my ereader (out of sight, out of mind). I love an ereader 🙂 Enjoy your Vox.Here is my IMM.

  12. Yep. I did a lot of debating last year before I bought my ereader and settles on Kobo because they use ePubs. That way, if I decided I wanted to switch later, I could take my books with me. So far, I've been loving them. I had the regular wireless one until I got the new on for Christmas and I couldn't be happier with it. Here's the site if you want to check it out.http://kobo.com
