Hello, and welcome! Whether you frequent my blog or are a first time visitor, it's nice to meet you and I hope you enjoy the site! I haven't posted an actual book review for a few days (bad Me, bad Me) so I thought I better get back on the ball and start rolling along the book review highway (no, I don't know where I was going with that....maybe you do?).
I am so excited about the book that I will be reviewing today! Two reasons top my list of why. Number one....I was able to get an ARC of it before it's offical release in October 2009 (at least at the time of this post) thanks to the B&N First Look book club (Thanks, B&N!). Oh, the joy of getting to read a book before the majority of the rest of the world....I am speechless in the bliss it provides. Well, not exactly speechless, more like giddy as I internally jump up and down with excitement. (oh wait, I said internally, didn't I...) Ahem....moving on. My second reason is that this book was REALLY GREAT! So the early read copy + the great read = one happy Insatiable Reader. Without further ado, today's book choice is....
Told in the voice of Nora Grey, it likens to the popular series Twilight by Stephenie Meyer in both voice chosen to narrate and acknowledging existing character flaws....add in Patch her new Bio partner with the bad boy persona that's just so wrong it's right (check Julian from L.J. Smith's Forbidden Game series), and you have a melting pot of mystery, fire, and desire. (Oooh! Chills, I tell you, chills!) The tension between them is palpable even though Nora stubbornly refuses to admit it to her conscious mind. As mixed up as she feels, when strange things begin to happen surrounding Patch's introduction into her life, she begins to wonder if he isn't the one behind it all. The twisted game being played with her has far dire consquences thatn just trying to scare or merely kill her....there are those that seek so much more....far beyond what she comprehends.
Let's not forget the unforgetable cast of supporting characters from Nora's best gal pal Vee to the mysterious Elliot and Jules. The later two come around as potential love interests, with bright and shiny exteriors (we're not talking tin men here...I just mean they have that "wholesome" nature about them.). Needless to say what's bad may appear bad, but things that are too good to be true can end up worse. (Cliffhanger, huh? Wow, I can see straight DOOOOOWWWNNN this one....but I can't rescue you! You have to read the book!)
Let's just say it's a must read. Watch for it's release in October 2009 (at least at the time of this review). If you just can't wait, check out the excerpt over at Simon & Schuster! (Click here and it will take you right to it.)
Feel free to leave your comments and feedback!
Until next time....happy reading!
