SOME NIGHTMARES NEVER END.
For Janie and Cabel, real life is getting tougher than the dreams. They're just trying to carve out a little (secret) time together, but no such luck.
Disturbing things are happening at Fieldridge High, yet nobody is talking. When Janie taps into a classmate's violent nightmares, the case finally breaks open -- but nothing goes as planned. Not even close. Janie's in way over her head, and Cabe's shocking behavior has grave consequences for them both.
Worse yet, Janie learns the truth about herself and her ability -- and it's bleak. Seriously, brutally bleak. Not only is her fate as a dream catcher sealed, but what's to come is way darker than she'd feared....
Your Dreams Are Not Your Own... Or at least they aren't when Janie Hannagan is around...
What would you do if you had a gift that is so extraordinary, so powerful that could change lives, but at the same time so dangerous and frightening that you just want to scream? Well Janie responds this questions, and a heck of a lot more. Janie continues her path as a dream catcher, and more than this she is trying something that is so completely new and exciting, that it even frightens her more than the dreams... She is Cabel's girlfriend. Together they embark on a whole new adventure that will be full of danger, confusion, surprise, and romance- cause lets face it, there's always room for some love.
Like Always Lisa McMann takes the cake, and not just a piece, but the whole entire thing! Her form of writing may seen strange at first, well to me at least it seemed strange, but you get into it after a while. The first book was amazing and captivating, and this one does not fall far behind.
I'm giving you fair warning, clear your schedule cause once you've open it you may not want to put it down.

From Dracula to the current obsession with the Twilight series of books and movies, once thing is for sure -- everybody just can't get enough of those sexy vampires! The newest fixation is coming to the CW (possibly this fall) with Vampire Diaries and the major roles have finally been cast....
The show is based on a series of books written by L.J. Smith, and tells the story of a high school girl named Elena who falls in love with the very mysterious Stefan, who happens to be a centuries-old vampire. Stefan and his brother Damon have a tumultuous relationship thanks to another woman who came between them many years ago. Their relationship goes from bad to worse when Elena captures the attention of both men and an epic battle for her heart ensues.
Variety reports that former lost star Ian Somerhalder has snagged the role of Damon. Nina Dobrev (Degrassi: The Next Generation) has been cast to play Elena and Paul Wesley (Everwood) joins the cast as the 200-year-old Stefan. Dawson's Creek mastermind Kevin Williamson will be the executive producer for the series.
Will Vampire Diaries become the next big show on the CW? Will our fascination with vampires allow us to make room for yet one more primetime series? Tell us what you think....
The recent Strigoi attack at St. Vladimir’s Academy was the deadliest ever in the school’s history, claiming the lives of Moroi students, teachers, and guardians alike. Even worse, the Strigoi took some of their victims with them. . . including Dimitri.
He’d rather die than be one of them, and now Rose must abandon her best friend, Lissa—the one she has sworn to protect no matter what—and keep the promise Dimitri begged her to make long ago. But with everything at stake, how can she possibly destroy the person she loves most?
About the Author:
Richelle Mead lives in Seattle and is the author of the VAMPIRE ACADEMY series. When not writing, she can be found watching bad movies, inventing recipes, and buying far too many dresses.
Ok, so im guilty, this is totally like Waiting on Wednesday, but since everybody calls it that I'll call mine Wishing on Wednesday ^^. Now Blood Promise is like on top of my "I Wish List". The last one was a total cliff hanger, and I just cannot wait to see what happend to Dimitri, and what Rose is going to do, or even Lissa for that matter. Some things I want from this book is:
- Dimitri not to be a Strogoi, and if he is, I want things to work out!
- For the Moroi to get up from their arses and start defending themselves, I mean they have magic and they don't even use it!
- Third but not last, I want another kick ass battle, my favorite battle has been the one in Frost Bite, and since I don't want to give spoilers away lets just say it was a fight to remember.

Book #: 2
Reading Level: YA
Goodreads Rating: 3.85
Published: June 1st, 2008
"Outside, the world was quiet and dark. There was a new snow on the ground, but everyone in Gramercy, and up in fifth Avenue, and downtown, where leisure and comfort were not such givens, was inside by now. The New Year had come, but nothing in it seemed even remotely real."
True Love. False Friends. Scandalous Gossip.
Welcome Back To Manhattan, 1899.
After bidding good-bye to New York's brightest star, Elizabeth Holland, rumors continue to fly about her untimely demise.
All eyes are on those closest to the dearly departed: her mischievous sister, Diana, now the family's only hope for redemption; New York's most notorious cad, Henry Schoon-maker, the flame Elizabeth never extinguished; the seductive Penelope Hayes, poised to claim all that her best friend left behind—including Henry; even Elizabeth's scheming former maid, Lina Broud, who discovers that while money matters and breeding counts, gossip is the new currency.
As old friends become rivals, Manhattan's most dazzling socialites find their futures threatened by whispers from the past. In this delicious sequel to The Luxe, nothing is more dangerous than a scandal . . . or more precious than a secret.
And still with all the problems the Hollands are facing, poverty, grieve, and a lot more, there is still a tiny window for what we fellows like to call love.
It is a tantalizing sequel, it made the series even better. All the characters have their own paths, twists and style that you just can't help but love. The way all their stories are bound together is just exquisite, and their stories by separate are wildly interesting. Everyones life is changing, from New York's sweet heart Elizabeth to the Hollands ex-maid's Lina- or Carolina.
At the end you can't help to think about the "What if's?" of the story, and of the possibility of it ending any other way, but then u remember there is a sequel. This book will leave you heart broken, and begging for more. But it, read it, love it.
