Swooning Saturdays #1

**Swooning Saturdays Meme; inspired by Waiting on Wednesday which is hosted by Breaking The Spine. Swooning Saturdays however is not only for the upcoming books you wish to read, but for old and new books you wish to read that have beautiful covers. Swooning Saturdays is hosted by Bloody Bookaholic**

As I was browsing through Amazon.com (one of my favorite sites) I came across a couple of books I found interesting, and that I think you can find interesting also. Yeap, you heard it here! Swooning Saturdays is where I'm going to post any book that I am currently Swooning for. Old or new, anything goes!

Swooning definition:
To be overwhelmed by ecstatic joy.

But why did I clicked on these books instead of the others?
Oh my, because they had beautiful covers.

She won't let them forget?

Shari Cooper wakes up dead. The last thing she can remember is falling from a balcony during her friend's party. Her death has been ruled a suicide, but Shari knows she was murdered. All of her closest friends are now suspects. As she tries to find her killer from the other side, she discovers her friends may not have been so loyal to her after all. Now, Shari is not just out for justice, she's out for revenge?

This book contains about 3 books in one; Remember Me; The Return; The Last Story. What I love about Christopher Pike is that his books have to do with the supernatural, and that for me is what books are all about.

When seventeen-year-old Jane Taylor witnessed her father's death, something happened to her. Ever since, her thoughts have been consumed by death, going so far as to foresee the ever-changing deaths of those around her.

Sixteen-year-old Emily Taylor resented her sister's closeness with their father, who died when she was six. With the strange ability to read minds, she drowns the voices out with drugs, sending Jane over the edge.

When seventeen-year-old Wes Green was adopted, he moved in next door to Jane, finding in her a childhood friend turned high-school crush. All summer, the pain in his bones seemed unwarranted. He was done growing long ago. When senior year starts, however, the pain only gets worse. The foreseen changes are not expected, and far too animal for his taste.

When Max Gordon found himself standing above the dying body of an innocent seven-year-old girl, he saw in her eyes something he hadn't seen in the century he'd spent roaming Earth. Her father was already dead, but there was hope to save her. Jane was her name, and already she was all he ever wanted...

(gotaa make a quick stop here, doesn't it remind you of another book this little part here? I don't know, something like Evermore by Alison Noel!?!?)

... It was his job to bring her back, and it was his job to protect her - the biggest mistake of his life.

When these four teens enter Glenwood High their senior year, no one but Max could understand the future ahead of them. Drawn together by blood and friendship, they each hide a dark secret that will soon bind them together. Max has to protect Jane, Jane wants to be normal, Wes wants Jane to love him, and Emily just wants the voices to stop... But their fate just wants them dead.

What a BEAUTIFUL cover! I swear that even if the summary wasn't interesting (which it is) I would buy this book just for aesthetics alone!

And that is IT for today folks. Aren't these books interesting looking? Beautiful looking? Too bad we have to wait for Remember Me a little more, but The Knight Angels is out now... *leaves a little bit of dust behind as she is running to Borders*


  1. REMEMBER ME. I'm so excited to see that, I've always loved Christopher Pike, I've read some of his books from the 90's. I still can't believe it. Thanks for blogging about this!

    The other book looks great, too.

  2. I my, that does sound like Evermore. The cover is GORGEOUS, though!!!

  3. Ooo...pretty! If you DO end up buying The Knight Angels, I can't wait to hear your thoughts! Lol. :)

  4. I so agree..the Knight Angels cover itself is tempting enough to buy the book without even having a look at the plot synopsis!

  5. I agree both covers are extremely alluring. And I'm intrigued by The Knight's Angels series plot summary!

  6. Oooh, I've heard about Remember Me. It's on my TBR pile. And I agree with your opinion about the 2nd book. It does sound a lot like Evermore. But the cover's beautiful. :)

  7. The Knight Angels has a beautiful cover! That would draw me into it alone. :)

    Both books sound intriguing. Great finds Taschima!!

  8. Oooh they both DO have beautiful covers and sounds really good. I haven't read EVERMORE yet, but I do have it and it's in my TBR pile, but THE KNIGHT ANGELS does sound a lot like EVERMORE.

    Great findings! Are you going to make 'Swooning Saturdays' a meme? It really is a great idea :)

  9. @Mandy Yeap, I am going to make it a Meme! You heard it here =]

  10. I am excited about Knight Angels and this is the first time I have seen Remember Me...looks good though! :D


Read your opinion, I want. Leave a comment, you shall.
