Problem Fixed!/Fav's of 2011: Part III

Well, sorry for the interruption. The wifi in my house was down for most of last week (thank God I still have Internet on my phone! Check Pinterest, Facebook, and email are things that I need!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), and we barely had time to get to a Panera, and the only time that we were there I had to devote to school since my school is online.



So, we still have no idea how that happened, but hopefully, it won't happen again, because if it does happen my blogging subscription newsfeed will be as high as it was when we finally got our wifi back (138! What the booty?!). I actually got my Internet back on Thursday, but since my writing schedule was already a little weird by incorporating these lists, I just decided to post this on the day I was going to post it last week: Tuesday.

Again, anyway.

my 5 fav books I'm looking forward to in 2011:

1. INSURGENT by Veronica Roth. OMG. OMG. o. m. g. Peter. Four. Tobias. Tris. OMG. OMG. OMG. What is it going to be like!?!??!?!?!?!??!!? I would include the synop, but it has some spoilers for those of you who haven't read it. :P Look at that beau-delish-sexy-opolis cover!

2. ENSHADOWED by Kelly Creagh. O_O I love Varen so much. I can't stand seeing him like this... well. If you read it, you'd know what I meant. Ugh, VAREN!!!!!! ISOBEL! I also can't post the synop of this 'cause it's got some major spoilers. Again, gorg-orific cover! I highly recommend the hardback of NEVERMORE, just because the paperback can't even contend with how beautiful it is. Seriously, it's so beautiful in hardback.

3. INCARNATE by Jodi Meadows. This one actually comes out in seven days, and if I had money, I know I'd buy it in a heartbeat. So, basically, I think we can all agree that this is the most GORGEOUS LITTLE THING cover-wise for 2012... so far. I was immediately lusting after this! But it also has a B.A. synop-

Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over a
nd over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.

Even Ana’s own mother thinks she’s a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she’ll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are suspicious and afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?

Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?

Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life.

4. EVERNEATH by Brodi Ashton. (Btw, love that name! It just sounds like an author's name!) This one actually came out today. It looks cool and I've heard really, really great wonderful reviews about it. The synop-
Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's...

5. STRUCK by Jennifer Bosworth. This one didn't really grab my interest, but I read the synop anyway. I'm glad I did, too. This sounds like a pretty crazy (but REALLY GOOD) book. The synop-
Mia Price is a lightning addict. She’s survived countless strikes, but her craving to connect to the energy in storms endangers her life and the lives of those around her.
Los Angeles, where lightning rarely strikes, is one of the few places Mia feels safe from her
addiction. But when an earthquake devastates the city, her haven is transformed into a minefield of chaos and danger. The beaches become massive tent cities. Downtown is a crumbling wasteland, where a traveling party moves to a different empty building each night, the revelers drawn to the destruction by a force they cannot deny.
Two warring cults rise to power, and both see Mia as the key to their opposing doomsday prophecies. They believe she has a connection to the freak electrical storm that caused the quake, and to the far more devastating storm that is yet to come.

Mia wants to trust the enigmatic and alluring Jeremy when he promises to protect her, but she fears he isn’t who he claims to be. In the end, the passion and power that brought them together could be their downfall. When the final disaster strikes, Mia must risk unleashing the full horror of her strength to save the people she loves, or lose everything.

The good thing about reading books with all the other book junkies when they're first published, is that you have people to fanboy about them with. But the really, really, really terrible thing about it is that you have to WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK TO BE FREAKING PUBLISHED!!!!!!!!!! That's why I'm so ecstatic about INSURGENT and ENSHADOWED. Although I adored each one to death, I was so upset that I couldn't jump into another story with Tris, or with Isobel. I was like:

Well, that's all,
See ya tomorrow for a book review,
