Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck

The old saying "Never judge a book by its cover" is really true. When I first heard of this series I didn't think I would be interested. I'm pretty picky about what I read. And if I don't feel like reading it well I don't read it. However I kept seeing people talk about it and rave about it. So I thought what the heck! I'll give it a try. And boy am I ever so glad I did. This has to be one of my new favorite series that I have read. Its so different and interesting then any of the other books I have read. I'm seriously kicking myself thinking "Why haven't I read this sooner?" I love Ren in my mind he is one dreamboat of a man err I mean Tiger. Let me give you a little info about it.

Kelsey's parents were killed in a car wreck so she is living in a foster home with some wonderful people. She puts in for a job and starts working at the circus helping take care of a Tiger. While there she starts bonding with this tiger and then learns he will be sold to a reserve in India. She is asked to accompany the Tiger back to India. She accepts and then learns that she is there to help break a 300 year old curse. Will Kelsey be able to help break Ren's Curse? And what kind of adventures and trials will take place?

I rated this 5 stars. It really did keep me interested and entertained!

Don't Breathe A Word by Jennifer McMahon

How in the world do I review this book? I'll do my best.

This book had to be the strangest yet most intriguing book I have ever read. From the beginning I was sucked in and wondering what would happen next. 15 years ago Lisa went missing from the woods behind her house. It is said that the woods are haunted. The only thing that remains are foundations from a town that existed long ago. Legend has it everyone who lived in the town just vanished one day and only one baby boy was left behind. He grew up to be the town Doctor and was Lisa's Great-Grandfather. They also say that fairies live in those woods and to never believe a fairy because they lie. Phoebe is in love with Sam (Sam is Lisa's brother) and has strange dreams of a shadow man. Sam is hardheaded and has a realistic view of the world so to believe that the strange occurrences are just those and not have anything to do with The Land of the Fairies or Teilo the Fairy king is a bit far fetched for him.

In the end secrets are revealed that I know I wasn't expecting and it left me saying OH MY GOSH. I hope the author is writing a follow up. I MUST know what happens!

I rated this a 4 star. Because it really did hold my attention. And the ending. WOW. I don't want to give any spoilers but what a CRAZY way to end it! Good Job Jennifer. I think you have a new fan in me!

If you haven't heard about this book they are making a series out of it on the CW that premieres on September 15th. The same night as the Vampire Diaries season premiere. So I wanted to read it because I wanted to see just how different it would end up on the tv screen.

Here is my review which may contain some spoilers so read at your own risk!

Cassie is forced to move from Sunny California where all her friends are and what she considers "home" to New Salem, Massachuetts to move in with her Grandmother who is becoming older and cannot live alone. Cassie is not one bit happy about this and longs for her old life. She meets a stranger on a beach and saves him from Jocks who wish him harm. She feels a connection with him. Thinking she'll never see him again she moves to New Salem. Cassie decides to make due with her situation. Her first day of school she has run ins with "The Club" a group of teens in her school everyone seems to be afraid of. Students and teachers alike. But Cassie feels drawn to them. Cassie meets Diana and becomes Diana's "Little Sister" and Diana takes her under her wing. A tragedy takes place and Cassie is inducted into the club. Where the guy she saved on the beach returns and she finds out its Diana's love interest. The Club members are direct descendants of witches from Salem. And Cassie learns she has powers. Murders and accidents start taking place and everyone is pointing the finger. WHO or WHAT is killing these people?

I gave it 3 stars because I like the book. It isn't my favorite of all time but it is my 2nd time reading it. (First time in High School over 10 years ago)
