The Hollow by Jessica Verday

The Hollow

By Jessica Verday

A Haunting Love Story lies within.....

When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen's funeral, and keeps reappearing in Abbey's life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he's the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again....but also special.

Jessica Verday wrote the first draft of The Hollow by hand, using thirteen spiral-bound notebooks and fifteen black pens. She is currently hand-writing her second novel, the continuation of Abbey and Caspian's story.

The Host is hitting the Big Screen

Stephenie Meyer is doing it again. The Host, a Scfi book for people who do not like Scfi, her first adult novel has been bought to make a movie. Producers Nick Wechsler, Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz used their own money to aquire screen rights. Andrew Niccol will write the script and direct. This trio will develop the movie independently.

If you have not read the book yet be sure you pick it up. I have read it multiple times and still cannot put it down. It was released in May 6, 2008 and topped the charts for good reason.

On Stephenie's website she says she is very excited to work with these three and very excited to see who fans will pick for the cast. So what do you think? Who would you pick?

Pretty Little Lairs

Sara Shepard: Pretty Little Lairs Series I attended a book signing today at Barnes and Noble in Cherry Hill, NJ. Sara Shepard is touring for a the new book in the series #6 Killer. It was quite enjoyable reading and book signing. Sara read a chapter from Killer, of course, skipping over parts that would give away anything for some of the girls that were in attendence that have not finished the series yet.

Sara did a Question and Answer session where some of the girls asked things they wanted to know. One of the funny questions was would she name a child of hers after a character in her books? She replied that she did not think her husband would allow that.

Sara has an awesome sense of humor and laughed about everything. I cannot wait for the last two books in the series, Heartless and Wanted.

Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev

Eyes Like Stars: Theatre Illuminata, Act I
By Lisa Mantchev

All Her World's A Stage

Bertie Shakespeare Smith is not an actress, yet she lives in a theather.
She's not an orphan, but she has no parents.
She knows every part, but she has no lines of her own.
That is, until now.

This is Lisa debut novel and it is truely orignal and witty. I loved the way it is set in a theatre and some times written like a play. The heroine Bertie bedroom is on the stage and her family are characters we have read for years.

My favorite characters are the fairies from A Midsummer Night's Dream, Peaseblossom, Cobweb, Moth, and Mustardseed. The three boys cause trouble and chaos and Peaseblossom tries to help keep them in line except when she moons the stage manager. Though they cause a mess they love and protect Bertie.

Weathly paranormal party girls

A Paranormal series featuring the Caruthers sisters, party girls who save the world...between cocktails.

The Demon and I
The Caruthers sisters are heiresses with privilege, weath, beauty, and brains. But these party girls have something extra. As the Guardian Keys, possessors of an ancient family secret, they hold the fate of the world in their hands.
Gillian, the eldest, is a sensation in the art world--this world, that is. In her other world she's the Assassin, a knockout who snuffs out dimension-jumpers who foul up her personal space. She never expected to join forces with one. But when a plague of murderous demons plunges the earth in darkness, she has no choice but to get a little help from a being who knows his stuff.
Dragons Prefer Blondes
Alex Caruthers is a sassy socialite who knows when it's time to turn in her dancing shoes and kick some serious dragon booty. But when Ginjin--the dragon warrior who's tried to kill her numerous times--chooses her as her mate, Alex finds herself in a situation that's too hot to handle.
For help she turns to Jake, head of Caruthers sercurity--and a total hottie in a suit--and asks him to pose as her boyfriend. Their relationship might be fake, but Alex can't deny that one touch from Jake makes her burn hotter than any dragon could.
This series is a comical read that has adventure but also throws in high fashion labels and appearance on the red carpet. There are a total of four Caruthers sister so I am looking forward to two more books.
