Reverse Thursday: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

 Reverse Thursday is a feature/MeMe that I think I came up with. I haven’t seen anything like it around. If there is I’m sorry just let me know, and I can give credit where due. 🙂
What is Reverse Thursday you ask?
Well I started thinking that we give so much love to those books that we are waiting on that aren’t released yet that maybe we forget those that have been out for awhile. I know I’m totally horrible about this.That’s why so many older books go unread by me. So to fix that problem Reverse Thursday was born. It’s kind of like a TBT (Throwback Thursday for books)
What I picked this week?
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Published September 27th 2011 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Outline:Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grows dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”, she speaks many languages – not all of them human – and her bright blue hairactually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.

When beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

Why I picked this?
I’m a little late to the game on this one as well, but I’ve seen nothing but awesome reviews, and it’s a finished series so double yea!

To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction. Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell… “Armentrout is a major talent…I just can’t stop reading!” New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter“Armentrout works her magic with swoon-worthy guys and a twist you never see coming.” –#1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines onWhite Hot Kiss

WHITE HOT KISS synopsis: OnWhite Hot Kiss - New Covere kiss could be the last. Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses. Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever. Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul. But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** iBooks ** IndieBound ** Kobo ** BAM

Stone Cold Touch - New Cover  STONE COLD TOUCH Synopsis:Every touch has its price Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could. But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay… “Constantly entertaining…the narrative sizzles with as much tension as romance.”—Kirkus Reviews on White Hot Kiss

And the Prequel Novella, BITTER SWEET LOVE…

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** iBooks ** BAM ** Kobo

Bitter Sweet Love - New Cover  BITTER SWEET LOVE Synopsis: In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series The Dark Elements, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons. Dez wasn’t just Jasmine’s crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining the balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn’t help that Jas’s father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally. And now he’s back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn’t taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again… “With her signature flare for combining humor, romance and action, Armentrout weaves a fast-paced read that will have readers’ hearts racing in more ways than one. Like Armentrout’s previous heroines, Jasmine is fun and full of attitude, while Dez is as snarky as he is sexy. This is a must read for new and old fans alike!” –RT Book Reviews

Todays topic is Heriones

  1. ROSE HATHAWAY from Vampire Academy
    This should be no surprise.

    Let’s face it without her the boys would have been lost the first year.
  3. Tris Prior from Divergent
    She’s Tris.
  4. Meadow Woodson from The Murder Complex
    I’m reading this right now, and I have to admit so far she seems pretty tough, and the blood.OMG
  5. Gretchen Mueller from Prisoner of night and fog
    Anyone who stands up against their family is tough in my eyes.
  6. Davy Hamilton from Uninvited
    She was accused of being a killer before she did anything.
  7. Mia from If I stay
    The girl had a hard decision when her whole family died.
  8. Ruby from The Darkest Minds
    I just love Ruby

  10. Deuce from Enclave
    Anyone who deals with living underground, and wants to protect against the things above ground is strong in my book.

Bout of Books Challenge: Bookish rainbow

Here’s your challenge: Create a stack of book spines from your bookshelf, or post pictures of the covers, that go in rainbow order.


So, you start with white on the bottom, then red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo (purple), violet (like a darker purple), and then black! The spine should have at least a majority be the color you are looking for, but just use your best judgement to get the rainbow-like flow. 

 The books I used to build this were:

Black: Panic By Lauren Oliver

Violet: Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr

Indigo: Bite Club by Rachel Caine Blue: Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic (Read)
Green: Cross my heart and hope to spy by Ally Carter (read) 
 Yellow: Displacement by Thalia Chaltas

Orange: Lover Revealed by Jr Ward

Red: Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake (read)

White: The Program by Suzanne Young (read)


I Had a lot of fun with this one although finding orange and trying to distinguish violet and indigo took a minute. lol

Bookaholics Anonymous

Edited: 12/8/13

Bookaholics Anonymous Online was created back in 2010 out of wanting to find people who enjoyed reading and books as much as I did. Little did I know I would be joining a community that would grow into something amazing (when it doesn’t have the little dramas that are impossible to avoid.) I have met some awesome authors along the way, and made friendships with some really sweet people. I’ve definitely learned more about the bookish world then I knew 3 years ago. I probably couldn’t have told you any names of publishers 3 years ago, but now I can spout off quite a few, all of whom are awesome in their own ways. Egmont, HarperTeen, Simon & Schuster, Penguin, Scholastic, and Spencer Hill.

In B.A.Os beginning stages, I would work on it daily, posts would be up, reviews would be done every few days, stuff was happening. Now it seems like it’s just sitting there, and in all truth it kind of is because the past years I’ve had a fiance and wedding to look forward to.  Now that I’m married I would like to think I can try to get back to reading and reviewing.
