There has been a lot about Broken and Screwed on the blog in the last few days. Sorry 'bout that. Actually, no. Not really. Tijans awesome! This book was released a day early and I bought it Thursday. I also finished it Thursday. The review will be up sometime next week. I loved it! Read my review of the first book here.

Review: Broken and Screwed by Tijan

Image
Since Broken and Screwed 2 is being released today I did a re-read of the first installment. I needed to remember the details of how BS1 ended before I read BS2, and since I hadn't published a review of this one I thought I'd hit two birds with one stone.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Alexandra's older brother died the night he graduated. That day changed everything for her. No longer was she the party girl. No longer did she care about being popular and no longer was her family the happy unit she always thought existed. The only person who could help her heal is the same person who loved her brother as much as she did, his best friend. She only hopes to keep her entire heart from breaking when Jesse will move on, and she knows he will. 
After Ethan died, Jesse excelled at basketball, partying, and girls. He used it all to turn his emotions off, but the irony was that Alex was …

Waiting on Wednesday #2: Broken and Screwed 2 by Tijan

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

Broken an Screwed 2 by Tijan. I'm having trouble to breathe over here! I love Tijan, I've given every one of her books a five star rating. I am clapping my hands and bouncing around on the couch because I really don't know what to with myself. I'm SO excited!


Release date:
 August 30th, 2013

Synopsis:
There is none and I don't need one! But I guess it would be kinda unfair to promote a book I can say absolutely nothing about other than I'M GONNA LOVE IT.

Since she hasn't posted any tesers that I can find I'll just give you a synopsis and excerpt from book 1 instead. Buy it and read it and I can assure you that you'll dive right into the second book.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Sam Parker is a vampire with a gift so strong and substantial that she is invited to partake in a test for a place in the Grand High Master Vampire’s private army. She finds that not only has the army never included a woman, but it has never included a Svent√© vampire; a breed that is regarded by the super strong Pagori breed and the hypnotically beautiful Keja breed to be too tame and human-like. Most refuse to take her seriously, especially a Pagori commander named Jared who she craves in spite of herself.
The Grand High Master, however, sees her potential and offers her the position of Jared’s co-commander to help train the newest squad in time for the impending attack on his home. Sam has to demonstrate to Jared and the squad of chauvinists why it is incredibly foolish to underestimate a wilful, temperamental, borderline-homicidal S…

Top Ten Tuesday #7: Most Memorable Secondary Characters

Image
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly Top Ten list hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Today we'll cover memorable secondary characters and anyone who's followed my blog know that I am terrible at remember anything else than whether I loved the book or not when two week's past! These are the ones I do remember (isn't that kinda the requirement for being memorable?)

In no particular order:

1. Logan Kade - Fallen Crest High series by Tijan - For those who somehow have managed to missed it, I LOVE TIJAN. I'll shout it to everyone who will listen, and those who won't. Logan Kade is the main character's new stepbrother. He's popular, ridiculously hot, sleeps with anything that moves and somehow manage to hide his sweet and gentle side from the rest of the world. I have the biggest crush on Logan!

2. Hailey - The Cresent Chronicles by Alyssa Rose Ivy - She sarcastic, witty and a no nonsense kinda girl full of awesome come-backs. What's not to love?

3. Shep Beautiful …

I received a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Donate Body to Science. Check.
When seventeen-year-old Kaitlyn checked the box, she never suspected she’d have her life–and her body–stolen from her. She awakens one day in a secret laboratory to discover that her body is now half-robot and is forced to hide her own secret: that she still has human emotions and a human mind. If the scientists who made her find out, they’ll erase what remains of who she was.
Kaitlyn finds an unlikely ally in Lucas, a handsome, brilliant scientist who can’t get over the guilt he feels knowing she was once a vibrant, beautiful young woman. He never expected a science project to affect him the way she does. As he tries to help her rediscover her past, he finds himself falling for the brave girl struggling to find her place and acceptance between the human…

Books I bought:



Books I've read by Chelsea M. Cameron before have been fantastic and Nocturnal sounded just as promising. After I read it (my review) I just knew I had to read the rest of the series. Both book one, two and three was on sale on Amazon (and still are!) so I didn't even hesitate! I am so curious about Branded, the blurb had me hooked and I just hope that it can live up to my already high expectations!

Received review copies:



I don't know what I'd do without NetGalley! I haven't read Heist Society yet but I will, sometime... Double Crossed is #2.5 so I hope it won't spoil to much!

Goodreads Synopsis:
Seventeen-year-old Ava-Claire Sullivan's mother is dying. Perhaps it's no surprise, then, that her greatest solace comes from someone who's already dead.
Peter Hart saves her one night in a graveyard from an attacker just as strange as he is, and now Ava can't stop thinking about him. She wants to see him again – even after he warns her he's dangerous, and she begins to realize what he is. Her best friends don't know anything about death, but Peter does, intimately. He's waiting for her the next night she comes to the cemetery, and the next...
But their growing bond comes up against a promise Peter made a long time ago, a promise that could destroy them both. Now Ava has to decide just what she's willing to give up to hold onto the one thing that could last forever.

Waiting on Wednesday #1: Breaking Nova by Jessica Sorensen

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

Breaking Nova by Jessica Sorensen. I've got lots of books by Jessica on my All Time Favorite list and this one seems just as great!


Release date:
September 3rd, 2013

Goodreads synopsis:

Nova Reed used to have dreams-of becoming a famous drummer, of marrying her true love. But all of that was taken away in an instant. Now she's getting by as best she can, though sometimes that means doing things the old Nova would never do. Things that are slowly eating away at her spirit. Every day blends into the next . . . until she meets Quinton Carter. His intense, honey brown eyes instantly draw her in, and he looks just about as broken as she feels inside.
Quinton once got a second chance at life-but he doesn't want it. The tattoos on his chest are a constant reminder of what he's done, what he's lost. He's sworn to never allo…

The Big Move

Image
I will slowly be moving my blog at debscrazyobsession.hemsida24.se to this new blog at Wordpress. I LOVED Hemsida24's website platform compared to Blogger, which I've always used before, but now after a month and a half I've realized there are things that H24 really lacks. Like scheduling posts. It's an awesome place to build a website and e-store containing a blog, not so much for having a blog that contains other pages. For a few weeks I will be cross-posting all my post, until September 8th if everything goes according to plan.

So today I've been going back and forth between WP themes for hours trying to figure out how you can and can't customize them and I've liked so many of them! Every one of them had something I really appreciated about them and had something that another theme lacked. At the end of the day I had to decide which features was a "want" and which was a "need" and go with a theme that had all my "needs". This…
