Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting

Book 2 in The Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting. It starts off right after book one ends. Violet's gift leads her to a shipping container in Seattle. She literally cannot sleep or have any sort or regular day until this body that is "calling" to her is found. So she calls in a annonymous tip. The body of a missing boy is found and then before Violet can blink an eye the FBI is knocking on her door wanting to know how she knew the body was in there. In the meantime life with her boyfriend Jay is going well. A new family moves to town and Jay and Mike become best friends. Violet starts receiving threatening letters. Will she find out who is sending the letters? What about the FBI? What are they going to do to Violet?

I thought this was a GREAT book! Maybe its her writing style or maybe its the fact that Violet finds bodies that draws me so much to this book. But I LOVE them! I seriously devour them! Like I've said it reminds me of the Harper Connelly series by Charlaine Harris and I LOVED those. So if you want a different spin to paranormal check these out!

I rated 5 stars. Because this book held my attention the whole way through!

Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon

I LOVE LOVE LOVED THIS BOOK! From the start I was sucked into Megan Rosenberg's story. I really don't know how to review it without it containing a ton of spoilers and I don't want to do that!

Megan moves to Ireland with her dad when he accepts a job offer. From the beginning she feels the best about this place. Like this is where they are supposed to be. They move around a lot since her mom died. (Megan and her mother were in an accident and Megan survived. Her mother did not) Her first day of school she sees Adam and its basically a love at first sight. Megan begans to make friends at her new school. They all tell her that there is rumors that Adam and his family are witches and that their lands are cursed. After what seems like forever and a run in with some other local kids (think Halloween and raw eggs) her and Adam finally admit their feelings for each other. Adam tells her the truth about what he really is and throws a bombshell at her.

You wanna know what that bombshell is??? READ THE BOOK.

5 star rating. Because I found myself wanting to read rather then facebook or watch tv!

Book of Shadows by Cate Tiernan (Book 1 in Sweep series)

Book one in The Sweep Series. I REALLY enjoyed it! Its a super short book and for me a very fast read. Its about a young teenage girl who gets introduced to Wicca and learns she is special. Think Magickal special. I think if I say too much I would give away things in the book you find out when you read. So with that being said Its a good book and I'm looking forward to book 2. I think it is geared for the YA genre. If you like books about Witches give this one a go!

Rated 4 stars!

P.S. Sorry the last few reviews have been so short. I got behind and wanted to hurry up and post so I didn't forget!

This is a short story written by Jennifer Malone Wright. I felt like the story was just starting when it ended. I really liked the character and am very excited to pick up book 2 and read it.

GREAT book!

Book 3 in the Nikki Styx series. It begins where book 2 leaves off. The Devil is still up to his antics trying to get Nikki to go to the dark side. He decides to make life a lot harder by getting a ghost involved who is basically pissed off at the world and wants revenge. The revenge is going to hurt her beloved Doctor boyfriend Joe. He is facing a lawsuit and losing his job. Nikki cannot let that happen so she is trying to make a deal with the ghost and try to help her.
Its a good book and very entertaining. I like this series though! Can't wait for book 4 :)

Tiger's Voyage by Colleen Houck

This is the 3rd book in the Tiger Series by Colleen Houck. It begins where book 2 leaves off. I am a HUGE fan of this series. And this book was No exception! I LOVED it just as much as I loved book one and book two. I was a bit bummed about some of Kelsey's decisions but I admired her for sticking to her guns and doing everything she could to keep her promises. The whole book had me at the edge of my seat. And once the Dragons were introduced I didn't want to put the book down because I HAD to know what was going to happen! Colleen is a Wonderful story teller. They way she weaves fiction and legend into a story makes it so exciting and fun! The book ends with a HUGE cliffhanger and you are left wanting the next book NOW! I can't wait for book 4. I really think I will be in a book store first thing when it comes out so I can start reading it! If you haven't read the series What are you waiting for? Go pick it up and start!
