ConsumeTitle: Consume.
Author: Melissa Darnell.

"These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, Which, as they kiss, consume. -William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet Tristan Coleman has survived the change from Clann magic user to vampire, much to Savannah Colbert's joy-and despair. By changing the Clann's golden boy and newly elected leader, even to save him from death, she has unleashed a fury of hatred and fear that they cannot escape. As the Clann and the vampire council go to war, a new threat stirs: an ancient being more powerful than anything the Clann or the vampires have faced in centuries. To fight for peace, Tristan and Sav must win the trust of someone who has caused them nothing but pain and heartbreak. Soon they will learn that some bonds are stronger than love-and some battles cannot be won without sacrifice."

Audiobook Review: Vortex

Vortex (Tempest Trilogy Series #2)Title: Vortex.
Author: Julie Cross.
Format: Audiobook.
Pages: N/A
Series: Yes, #2.
Source: Publisher.
Publisher: St. Martin's Press.
Published Date: 1/15/2013.
Barnes and Noble.


"Jackson Meyer has thrown himself into his role as an agent for Tempest, the shadowy division of the CIA that handles all time-travel-related threats. Despite his heartbreak at losing the love of his life, Jackson has proved himself to be an excellent agent. However, after an accidental run in with Holly—the girl he altered history to save—Jackson is once again reminded of what he's lost. And when Eyewall, an opposing division of the CIA, emerges, Jackson and his fellow agents not only find themselves under attack, but Jackson begins to discover that the world around him has changed and someone knows about his erased relationship with Holly, putting both their lives at risk all over again."

My Thoughts:

After reading, falling in love, and having my heart crushed in the first book, Tempest, I had enormous expectations from Julie Cross, and her writing in this second installment, Vortex. The thing that really sticks out about this series is the writing style and the world created within it. Its not hard to get lost in the story, the different types of jumps, the different worlds, and which year he might be in, but if you keep up with everything, it will be very rewarding! With such a captivating start, and a compelling continuation, once again I have monumental expectations for the third and final book in the series!

Jackson Meyer is a normal teenage guy....wait..who am I kidding? He's...inlovewithagirlwhohechangedhistorytosave, and nowisaagentintheCIA!!! WOOH!

Joining a special division in the CIA, which deals with time travel and the affects of it, Vortex starts with Jackson's training and he's first few missions, one of which includes a very special girl... Holly. Conflicted between what he should be doing and his heart Jackson tries to keep a hard exterior, while his interior is slowly breaking.

Unsure as to why Holly is an agent in Eyewall, Jackson has to keep his act together, save the girl he loves, keep time in its place, and find out who he really is, and where he's from.

Vortex had so much going, had me feeling every emotion possible, and even when I was balling my eyes out, I couldn't get enough of the story, and the romance between Jackson and Holly...even though Holly doesn't know it half of the time..

Once I get my hands the third and finally book in this trilogy, it'll go right to the top of my TBR pile!

It's Monday, What Am I Reading?

Well, actually it's Tuesday, but who's really counting anyways, right?

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner Series #1)Title: The Maze Runner.
Author: James Dashner.

"When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls. Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every thirty days a new boy has been delivered in the lift. Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers. Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind."

My Thoughts:

Currently I'm right at the part when the girl appears just one day after Thomas just appeared, and their trying to figure out what's wrong with her, why she's here just one day after another newbie showed up (usually there's only one new person a month, and its always a boy), and what the note she was holding could mean and change things.

I've been told that this book is similar to the Hunger Games in a few ways, and as far as I've read it is. Teenagers are trapped in this land, needing to play and win at this game, to be able to escape and save themselves. I'm really liking it so far, and I'm excited to see what Jame Dashner and his series has in store for me!

Book Review: Pushing The Limits

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)Title: Pushing The Limits.
Author: Katie McGarry.
Format: Hardback.
Pages: 403.
Series: Yes, #1.
Source: Harlequin Teen Panel.
Publisher: Harlequin Teen.
Published Date: July 31, 2012.
Barnes and Noble.


"No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible. Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again."

First and Last Line:

"'My father is a control freak, I hate my stepmother, my brother is dead and my mother has...well...issues. How do you think I'm doing?'"
"I kissed her lips one more time and plucked the keys from her hand. 'Yes, and I'm driving.'"


The cover of Pushing The Limits, is one of those where I would never take it to school, due to not wanting to explain over and over again what the title, and the cover picture are all about, and that this book isn't just about "adult activities". But at home, I would fan girl over it, liking the way the title is designed, and that when taking off the jacket, the actual hard cover, has a picture too, and isn't plain. If I gave cover ratings, I would give this 28 stars out 5; out of this world!

My Thoughts:

Pushing The Limits switches alternates points of view in every chapter, from Noah to Echo, and back to Noah. While Echo is dealing with the loss of her brother, who was killed during a deployment, the scars from her mother, the remarriage of her father, and the pregnancy of her stepmother, Noah is dealing with the loss of both his parents, the struggle to get his life back on track, and the fight to have his younger brother's back.

Both attending counselling sessions to get help with all the things going on, the two start seeing a lot of each other, especially when Echo is assigned to become Noah's Calculus tutor. Despising one another at first, and avoiding the other whenever possible, the two begin to realize the only person they have, and that understands them, is the other. Finally teaming up to get the information they both desperately need, the foster parents of Noah's little brothers' information, and the history of Echo and what really happened that night when she received those scars, they both start to feel a strong connect and care for each other.

Pushing The Limits is a book filled with hurt, angry, but also happiness and love. Echo and Noah learn to come to terms with the everything happening in their lives, and instead of trying to fight everyone, they realize what's really the best for them, even if it wasn't what they thought at first. I really enjoyed Pushing The Limits, and the writing style of Katie McGarry. This is the first book that I've read of hers, but I can't wait to read the stories of Noah's two best friends in Dare You To, and Crash Into You!

WWW Wednesday

Welcome to Turning Pages!

I hope you've all had an amazing Valentines Day, filled with love...and chocolate! This week has been a little busy for me, and that's why this post is so late. But it's Saturday, I'm in pajamas, and have free time to a bit of blogging!

What am I currently reading?

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)

I haven't actually started reading Insurgent by Veronica Roth just yet, but I will after I finish doing some blogging, and cleaning. I absolutely loved Divergent, read it in less than a day, and even got my dad and best friend to read it as well. I have expectations out of the roof for this second installment in the series!

What did I just finish reading?

Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have)

Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn't Have) by Sarah Mlynowski, is the book I finished last night. This is one of those books that has the reader feeling every emotion possibly, happiness, angry, sadness, and even frustration (..the good kind?), I couldn't get enough of the story and the main character, she was really down to earth, and easy to relate to!

What am I planning on reading next?

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)

A while ago I purchased a box set of the Maze Runner series, so I hope to finally get that series started and reviewed. If you've read The Maze Runner or any of the other books in the series, feel free to comment down below and let me know what you think!

It's Monday, What Am I Reading?

Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have)Title: Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn't Have).
Author: Sarah Mlynowski.

"2 girls + 3 guys + 1 house – parents = 10 things April and her friends did that they (definitely, maybe, probably) shouldn't have. If given the opportunity, what sixteen-year-old wouldn't jump at the chance to move in with a friend and live parent-free? Although maybe "opportunity" isn't the right word, since April had to tell her dad a tiny little untruth to make it happen (see #1: "Lied to Our Parents"). But she and her housemate Vi are totally responsible and able to take care of themselves. How they ended up "Skipping School" (#3), "Throwing a Crazy Party" (#8), "Buying a Hot Tub" (#4), and, um, "Harboring a Fugitive" (#7) at all is kind of a mystery to them."

My Thoughts So Far:

Really loving this book, and it fits right in with the theme of books I've been reading lately. Ten Things We Did, follows the story of a girl who's dad and step mother mom away, and she is left to live with her best friend for the last semester of the school year. But what her (uptight) dad doesn't know, is that she is in this house without any parental supervision, that she is on birth control, and is spending the money he's sending her on everything but rent.

I can't wait to see what the rest of the ten things are, since the book goes in order accordingly!

Book Haul!

Happy Monday, and welcome to Turning Pages!

Trying to catch with my TBR and review pile, I haven't been doing too much book shopping, sadly. But in the last two weeks, and I did pick up two books in a few random places, and thought it would be cool to share and see if any of you read and enjoyed them.

The two books I purchased in the last few weeks are Pretty Little Secrets, by Sara Shepard!

Pretty Little Liars: Pretty Little Secrets"A's making a list and checking it twice. Rewind to junior year in Rosewood, Pennsylvania, to a winter break no one has ever heard about. . . . Alison's murderer is in jail, A is dead, and the pretty little liars can finally relax. Or so they think. But there's a new A in town—me. I'm watching these girls day and night, and you won't believe what I've uncovered. Hanna's desperate for a very personal session with her trainer. Emily is number one on Santa's naughty list. Aria's old flame from Iceland is about to land her in hot water. And Spencer's resorting to some backhanded tactics to get what she wants. What happens on holiday break stays on holiday break—right? But guess what. I saw. And now I'm telling. Taking place between Unbelievable and Wicked, Pretty Little Secrets is a very special Pretty Little Liars tale revealing the liars' never-before-seen misadventures over their junior-year winter break."

Dead Witch Walking (Rachel Morgan Series #1)And Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison.

"The underground population of witches, vampires, werewolves—creatures of dreams and nightmares—has lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But after a genetically engineered virus wipes out a large part of humanity, many of the "Inderlanders" reveal themselves, changing everything. Rachel Morgan, witch and bounty hunter with the Inderland Runner Services, is one of the best at apprehending supernatural lawbreakers throughout Cincinnati, but when it comes to following the rules, she falls desperately short. Determined to buck the system, she quits and takes off on the run with an I.S. contract on her head and is reluctantly forced to team up with Ivy, Inderland's best runner . . . and a living vampire. But this witch is way out of her league, and to clear her name, Rachel must evade shape-changing assassins, outwit a powerful businessman/crime lord, and survive a vicious underground fight-to-the-death . . . not to mention her own roommate."

I'm excited about both books, and have heard a few good things about each. If you've read either, comment down below with your thoughts, but please, no spoilers!
