7 Souls by Barnabas Miller & Jordan Orlando
Mary expected her seventeenth birthday to be a blowout to remember, courtesy of her best friends, fellow New York prepsters Amy and Joon, and her doting boyfriend, Trick. 

Instead, the day starts out badly and gets worse. After waking up in a mortifying place with a massive, unexplainable hangover, Mary soon discovers that nobody at school is even aware that it's her birthday. As evening approaches, paranoia sets in. Mary just can't shake the feeling that someone is out to get her - and as it turns out, she's right. Before the night is over, she's been killed in cold blood. 

But the murder is only the beginning of Mary's ordeal. Her soul gets trapped in a strange limbo, and she must relive the day of her death through the eyes of seven people - each of whom, she finds, had plenty of reasons to hate her. As Mary explores the mysteries of her world, discovering secrets that were hidden in plain sight while she was alive, she clings desperately to the hope that she can solve her own murder, change the past, and - just maybe - save her own life. 

With its blend of suspense, horror, fantasy, and realism, 7 Souls is an adrenaline rush of a thriller. 

7 Souls will be in stores from April 2011.

REVIEW: The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller

A fresh and exciting new novel by Kirsten Miller, author of the Kiki Strike series, The Eternal Ones is a MUST READ.

Haven Moore is more than meets the eye. She looks seventeen, but she has actually been reincarnated so many times that she has lived for over three thousand years. As a child, Haven had visions of a life as a woman named Constance. Only when the visions return at the age of seventeen when evidence surfaces does Haven realise that Constance was her in a past life. Drawn to famous movie star/ billionaire, Iain Morrow, Haven enters a world where your past lives DO come back to haunt you. Can Haven escape her pre-lived fate in time?

I really loved this book. I thoroughly enjoyed Miller's ideas on reincarnation and spin on an age -old love story.

The seeds for the plot were scattered throughout the book, only to bloom later on surprising you with the twists and turns the book took.

I really appreciated the names that Miller had chosen being both interesting and reflecting some of the characters personalities; Imogene Snively being the pompous old lady that was portrayed throughout the book. I really liked the characters, I thought that they were more than you first think and I really enjoyed the fact that they kept you on your toes.

The writing style was relaxed and made you feel comfortable, easy to read. The Eternal Ones keeps you eternally guessing and I would enthusiastically recommend it for any girl aged 13 - 16.

Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride

Today I received a copy of Hold me closer, necromancer  by Lish McBride which I am really excited about.
In stores November 22.

Sam leads a pretty normal life. He may not have the most exciting job in the world, but he's doing all right - until a fast food prank brings him to the attention of Douglas, a creepy guy with an intense violent streak. 

Turns out Douglas is a necromancer who raises the dead for cash and sees potential in Sam. Then Sam discovers he's a necromancer too, but with strangely latent powers. And his worst nightmare wants to join forces . . . or else. 

With only a week to figure things out, Sam needs all the help he can get. Luckily he lives in Seattle, which has nearly as many paranormal types as it does coffee places. But can a bratty harbinger named Ashley save his skin?
I don't know about you, but I can't wait to read this!

REVIEW: A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

As part of time travel month (12 October - 12 November 2010), I was excited to read the New York Times bestseller, A Great and Terrible Beauty.

After her mother's death in India, Gemma Doyle is sent to a  finishing school in Spence, England. 
After the terrible prediction of her mother's death, Gemma finds herself repeatedly experiencing similar visions of the future. Unsure what is happening to her, an aloof, cloaked stranger warns her about the dangers of her powers and the world around her. Can Gemma save herself before it all goes too far?

I found that this book was a bit slow for the first one or two chapters, but after that, you find yourself reaching for A great and Terrible Beauty around the clock.
The descriptions painted by Bray were effortless to visualize, leaving you with a lasting picture of the settings and all the characters. The characters came  from all ends of the spectrum; from withdrawn and reserved to fervent and temperamental.The characters were illustrated through their speech and behavior which effectively created a setting that took you back in time.
I thoroughly enjoyed A Great and Terrible Beauty and recommend it to girls aged 13-16 or fans of Anna Godbersen or Jenna Burtenshaw.

A Love Story Starring My Dead Best Friend By Emily Horner

Not just a unique and catchy title, but a compelling novel that surprises with twists and turns down the  long road of discovery.

After the death of her best friend Julia, Cass goes on the road trip that she and Julia were planning. As Cass travels across the states, she discovers herself, meets individual people and has entertaining and experiences along the way.

I loved this book. As soon as I saw it, I was drawn in by the distinct title, the simple but funky cover and the overwhelming need to know what the book was about.
I loved the characters, I felt that they were real and well-developed, making them entertaining and believable. 
Written int the style of Now, being the present -after the road trip, and Then, during the road trip; written in a sort-of chapter format.

A love story starring my dead best friend was original, thought provoking. As Cass was cycling across the states, she undergoes a journey, physical and emotional, with you along for the ride.

I highly recommend this book for girls aged 13 - 16. Fans of Luisa Plaja (The Kiss series) will love this quirky new novel.
