The Scarlet Letter meets Minority Report in bestselling author Sophie Jordan's chilling new novel about a teenage girl who is ostracized when her genetic test proves she's destined to become a murderer.

When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. Her boyfriend ditches her, her parents are scared of her, and she can forget about her bright future at Juilliard. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life. Davy wants to trust him; maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.

The first in a two-book series, Uninvited tackles intriguing questions about free will, identity, and human nature.

Pawn - Aimee Carter [Review]

Title: Pawn
Author: Aimée Carter
Publisher: Harlequin TEEN
Series: The Blackcoat Rebellion #1
Release Date: November 26th 2013
Pages: 346
Rating: ★★★

For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country. 

If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter. 

There's only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed …and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that's not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she's only beginning to understand.

Short Reviews: Not a Drop to Drink, Perfect Ruin & My Soul to Take

Today I'm going to give you some short reviews of books I've read in the last couple of weeks, but never reviewed in full. This could have been because I couldn't really think of what to say about it or lack of time.

Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

I know many other reviewers absolutely loved this book, but I wasn't really blown away by it. 

The romance was unnecessary in my eyes, the backstory of why the world suddenly had no water wasn't explained and I found the end a bit rushed. I did like how Lynn's character developed during the story, she became more trusting and friendlier.

Stars: ★★★

My Soul to Take (Soul Screamers #1) by Rachel Vincent

This was quite a short book. I liked the paranormal concept of this book, the soul screamers, it was original. I did not really like the romance, it seemed like the boy only liked the girl once he figured out she was like him. Except for the boy, Nash, I liked the characters and they have a lot of potential. The book introduces a mystery and I'm curious to see how it unfolds in the rest of the series. 

Stars: ★★★

Perfect Ruin (The Internment Chronicles #1)
by Lauren DeStefano 

The book starts off pretty slow and the story 
gradually builds up. I did not really get the backstory of Internment and the whole thing with the edge. I did like the romance (for once), Basil and Morgan were sweet together. The book ends in quite a cliffhanger, unfortunately. I think the story has a lot of potential and I will definitely read the next book.

Stars: ★★★1/2

Cover Reveal: Fracture Me - Tahereh Mafi

Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi

(Shatter Me #2.5)


In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Timesbestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel MeFracture Me is told from Adam's perspective.

As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam's focus couldn't be further from the upcoming battle. He's reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend's life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James's safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It's time for war.

On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam's newly discovered half brother, won't be that easy. The Reestablishment can't tolerate a rebellion, and they'll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.

Release Date: 17th of December 2013

I love the cover! The feather lashes are so beautiful, although I can't figure out what they signify. This novella will be from Adam's POV. I never really liked Adam in Shatter Me and Unravel Me, but I'm still excited to read this novella.

What do you think of the cover?
