Title: Chameleon Genre: New Adult Urban Fantasy Author: Kenya Wright  Blurb:
Cameo lives in a caged supernatural city where all species are tagged at birth with silver brands embedded in their foreheads. Her X brand identifies her as a Mixbreed, but she’s so much more. Like a chameleon, she can shift from one person’s image to another.
It’s a great way to make money for a habitat street kid, or Cage Punk as most people call them. Wiz, her street partner-in-crime, finds her jobs to use her abilities. Some jobs entail changing into people to take academic tests. Others require more skill and involve higher risk.

When Wiz asks Cameo to stand in for a Were-wolf teenager who doesn't want to go to her debutante ball, it seems like just another job, until a corpse is discovered and an old friend of Wiz appears.

Deadly to Promise (Elemental Killers #2)
Author: Mia Hoddell
Genre: YA/Romance/Paranormal/Fantasy



A broken promise is all it takes.

Becoming an E.K isn’t a choice for Serena – it’s a necessity to survive. To destroy the Elementals she has to leave her old life behind. She has to train and follow a strict regime. But with time against her, she has only a few weeks to master the skills Kai spent his whole life perfecting.

The knowledge passed down from her ancestors is crucial to the Elementals demise and the success of their mission. However, the path they must follow is lined with riddles, each more confusing than the next. It doesn’t matter how close to succeeding they get, it’s never enough. The Elementals are one step ahead at every revelation and that can only mean one thing – the E.Ks have a traitor among them.

Booking Through Thursday (40) Reading outside books

Image
Booking Through Thursday is a weekly bookish meme where participants are asked a series of questions about their reading habits. To join this or future Booking Through Thursdays Click Here.

This Week BTT Asks:
Outside of books, what’s your favorite thing to read? Newspapers? Magazines? Blogs? Fanfiction? Specific websites??

 I used to be a big reader of magazines but now only really pick them up when waiting to be checked out at the store. I've never read much fan fiction so that doesn't really apply to me.

 I do however like to read online news and check Yahoo frequently throughout the day just to stay on top of things. I also really like to read blogs/websites. I have those I follow religiously and those I might only click once or twice a week. I do try and visit at least a few new ones daily from those I find on Facebook or Twitter because variety as they say is the spice of life.

I should also note that the content of the blogs & websites I visit vary dependi…

Review: All Together Now by Robert Kent

Image
Author: Robert Kent
Genre: Zombies, Horror
Publisher: Middle Grade Ninja Press
Publication Date: September 2013

Yea though we perish, yea though we die, we'll all be together in the sweet by and by...

Fifteen-year-old Ricky Genero is writing a journal of the zombie apocalypse. His high school has burned to the ground, his friends are all either dead or shambling corpses roaming the earth in search of human flesh, and his best friend died saving his six-year-old brother Chuck from a zombie horde. When Chuck is bitten and infected with the zombie virus, Ricky must travel among the walking dead in search of a cure.

ReviewAll Together Now starts at the beginning of a Zombie Apocalypse and through a series of journal entries tells how the main character survives through it all. All Together Now is a book that  is fast paced, well written and thought provoking while still filling its pages with plenty of action, suspense and of course Zombie carnage.

One of the things I really liked about …

Waiting On Wednesday (77) Angelbound by Christina Bauer

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine. For this weeks Waiting On Wednesday I chose Angelbound by Christina Bauer.
Expected Publication: December 17, 2013 by Ink Monster LLC Eighteen year old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your every day quasi-demon, half-demon and half-human, girl. For the past five years, Myla has lived for the days she gets to fight in Purgatory’s arena. When souls want a trial by combat for their right to enter heaven or hell, they go up against her, and she hasn’t lost a battle yet.

But as she starts her senior year at Purgatory High, the arena fights aren’t enough to keep her spirits up anymore. When the demons start to act weird, even for demons, and the King of the Demons, Armageddon, shows up at Myla’s school, she knows that things are changing and it’s not looking good for the quasi-demons. Myla starts to question everything, and doesn’t like the answers she finds. Wha…
