"The Virgin Hunt Games" [The Virgin Hunt Games Series, Book 1 / Volume 1] by Mel Teshco

Author's Book Description : EARTH, YEAR 2324

Melody Simmons desperately needs to fill her bank accounts with credits that could help her family climb out of near poverty. And in the Virgin Hunt Games, that means enticing as many hunters as possible to bed her. The downside? Billions of viewers from all parts of the galaxy would be watching her fall from virtue with avid interest.

Alien Damon Banscott despises everything about the Virgin Hunt Games. Except the fact he can now legally destroy his enemy in the games. He is in this only for revenge. Then Damon sees one of the beautiful hunted and, for a moment, his heart stops beating. He’ll fight to the death before allowing another hunter to touch and deflower Melody.

But while the hunters get more credits by pleasing their captive mate sexually, the hunted women received more by finding their pleasure with any of the hunters who weren’t their assigned mate.

Let the games begin…

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars. This novel was a mixture of what I expected and what I had not expected. Also, even though I had not read the Hunger Games series I had watched the movie versions and can definitely say that this novel felt like an adult sexualized version of the Hunger Games – game-wise only as there was no similar plots – with a Cinderellaesque twist to it. THIS NOVEL WAS SOOOOOOOOOO HOT!!!

From Book to the Movies: Beastly

I read the book "Beastly" by Alex Flinn, last summer -- before I started writing reviews on my blog -- and at that time I gave it 3 out of 5 stars. Today I just found out that there is a new movie, based on the novel, coming in March 2011!! It looks good and I can't wait to check it out for myself!

Made the Grade: Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin

Format: Paperback | Pages: 196 | Release Date: September 2010 | Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books

"Low Red Moon" by Ivy Devlin (I read this as a part of Smitten With Books ARC Tours)

My Book Summary : Avery has spent most of her life living in the woods. Her parents have a piece of land with a house that was built one room at a time, everything is just so quaint and peaceful that she never had any regrets about the way she grew up. But now her life has suddenly changed because of her parent’s murder. She was there during the murder but all she can remember was seeing silver and blood. Lots and lots of blood.

She moves into her grandmother's house, a woman who she doesn't know that well anymore, and tries to understand what had happened in her life and to her parents. Not long after her parents died a new boy, named Ben, starts at her high school. He is gorgeous, but he would never be interested in her. Then on different occasions, she watches his eyes changing from brown to silver, and she doesn't know how to explain it. And even though they might not realize it from the first time he sets his eyes on her a connection between them occurs.

With that connection, they get closer, and when they do, she finds out what he really is. Will she be scared of him now, and keep away from him? Especially when more murders occur and he might be connected ...

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! This is an unusual take on the "Little Red Riding Hood" story we all grew up with, where the bad guy definitely isn't who you think. Creative, dark, and romantic are some of the words I'd use to describe this book. In truth, I didn't like the book during the first few chapters because of how dark it was and I'm not one to like all that goriness ... but that's just me. So ... if you like a good mystery novel then I'd recommend this book for you!

Book Teaser(s) :
Teaser 1
"I heard a wolf, and I---"
"You heard a wolf? How could you hear that? You live in town."
"I'm used to hearing them, so I guess I know what to listen for," I said. "I live---lived---near your great-uncle, remember? The woods are deeper there, without so much---" I gestured toward town, toward Renee's house off in the distance.
"Right," Ben said, standing up. "I need to go."
"Oh, okay," I said, and sank back against the tree, ready to watch him go.
But he didn't leave. He just stood there. ~ within Chapter 8

The material things don't matter to me. So come as you are, you've got nothing to prove. You won me with all the you do.

Format: Adobe PDF | File Size: 678 KB | Release Date: May 2009

"A Knight to Remember" (now called "Rhodri") [Blood Sword Legacy, Book 5] by Karin Tabke -- Set in Wessex Coast, Southern England in 1068 ... Mercia has come back home from the abbey to see her older sister, Rowena, wed. However, while trying to seek out as much adventure she can before she goes back to the abbey to take her final vows (which she really does not want to do), Mercia decides to take a trip to the beach. Once she gets there she finds an injured man on the beach, and she feels hard pressed to help him.

Mercia set him up in a nearby cave and tends to his wounds. After the man regains consciousness, she finds that as he gets better he still doesn’t know who he is, but she still feels drawn to him just the same.

Back at her home, her family is still waiting for Rowena’s betrothed to arrive, and when his guards arrive without him, a search is set out.

What will happen once the man remembers who he is? Will Mercia be able to stay with this man and not complete her vows? Will Rowena’s betrothed ever arrive?

3.5 out of 5 stars! It's kind of like a Cinderella story, only without the Fairy Godmother and the Step Family, and kinda set into the real world of that time period. So - of COURSE I liked it! Very cute! Quite charming!

** Title is from the song What Makes You Different by Backstreet Boys **
