All I have to say about this FULL LENGTH TRAILER is WOW! They have done a great job. It is BEAUTIMUS!! I have this in my TBR pile. I enjoyed the first two installments in the series, I am sure I wont be disappointed with the final chapter of the story.
"I don't love Sonny Flannery."
That's the lie Kelley Winslow told to protect the boy she loves from a power he doesn't know he possesses. Devastated, Sonny retreats—to a haven for Lost Fae that's hidden deep underneath New York City.
But Kelley's not about to let things end in heartbreak. To get Sonny back, she's got to find out who's after his magick—and how to use her own. She's got to uncover who's recruiting Janus Guards to murderously hunt innocent Faerie. She's got to help rebuild the shattered theater company she called family. And she's got to do it all without getting dangerously distracted by the Fennrys Wolf, whose legendary heart of stone seems to melt whenever he's around Kelley.
The intrigue and romance that began with Wondrous strange and Darklight come to a stormy head in Tempestuous, the breathtaking conclusion to Lesley Livingston's ravishing urban Faerie trilogy.
Jill over at Breaking the Spine started and I found it on the Ravenous Reader blog. I agree it is a great idea. This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.
the author of RUINED, which I totally loved
From Good Reads
Comes Dark Souls a spellbinding tale of ghosts, mystery, and love.
The city of York is the most haunted place in the world: The ghosts of Vikings, hanged highwaymen, and tragic royals all haunt its cobblestone streets.
Miranda Tennant arrives in this moody ancient city, nursing a great sadness. She will fall in love for the first time in York. She will also risk losing everything: her family--and her life. All because of two boys fighting for Miranda's attention. One whose mind has been warped by the death of his brother. And the other a ghost, determined to finish a terrible crime.
Coming August 2011 from Point (Scholastic)
This is one book a an anxious to get my hands on. So Dark Souls is my Waiting on Wednesday what is yours...
My name is Meghan Chase.
I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.
This time, there will be no turning back.
I love this series, Julie Kagawa is a wonderfully gifted writer. She has created a wonderful world, each installment I am sucked back into her world. In this installment there are twists and turns galore. The faery world that has been created is so well crafted!
Iron Queen picks right up where Iron Princess left off. I and so surprised that each story gets better. Which since I loved the first two installments that is pretty hard to believe.
Just when you think you know what will happen zing... Ms Kagawa hits you with another twist. I even love love the supporting characters, Evil get eviler *questions if that is a word, but I am good with it* Love gets more intense.You will pick this book up and not put it down until you get to the end. And what an end it is!!I am dying to get my hands on Book 4 which is Ash's story - The Iron Knight.
So I have to give Iron Queen, drum roll please ======>
Here is your opportunity to get your hands on the latest Iron Fey novel... I am giving away a copy of Iron Queen!!! ohhhhh yes I am.
All you have to do is Leave a answer to this question

Waterfall looks like an interesting story by an author I have not heard of.
I always enjoy finding new authors. Lisa has written many adult fictions before, this is her first YA book.
She wrote it for her teenage daughter after she and her daughter fell in love with Twilight.
You can read the prolog and first chapter here ======> Click Here :O)
And you can find the authors site here ========> Lisa's site
Lisa is having a contest to win a signed copy! so go and check it out.
Waterfall is the first book in the River of Time Series
I have some serious cover love... take a look at the covers for the entire series!
Here is a bit from Lisa's website..
The River of Time Series: a teen time travel series in which two girls go from modern times to medieval Italy. Adventure, romance, suspense, and a hefty dose of conflict will hopefully make this series page-turners for young women…that’s my goal, anyway! I conceived the series after reading the Twilight series with my teen.
WATERFALL (Book 1): Releases February, 2011 Get A SNEAK PEEK!
CASCADE (Book 2): Releases June, 2011
TORRENT (Book 3): Releases September, 2011

Here is the post from her Blog... Spread the word and have some fun. Now go and enter yourself.. shooo now go
So, to celebrate its imminent release, have I got a contest for you.
First, let's take a look at the prizes.
A signed set of all three Iron Fey books: THE IRON KING, THE IRON DAUGHTER, and THE IRON QUEEN.
Within all three books will be a unique, hand-drawn sketch of one of the characters from the series. Done Chibi style.
(chibi style Iron Fey)
FIRST AND SECOND PRIZE
Two other winners will receive a signed The Iron Queen. (Minus the doodles.) So, now that you know what you can win, what is this contest, exactly?
Well, its easy.
All you have to do is show your Iron Fey/Team Ash/Team Puck love in some way. This could be via fan trailer, fan art, fan fiction, fan anything. Be creative. Sculpt Puck out of play dough. Make an Ironhorse out of tires. (That would be very impressive, actually.) Take a photograph of the Winter Court. Write a poem in Grimalkin's voice.
Then post it on your blog and send me the link in the comments. Be sure to include the contest in the post, so others can have a chance to win, too.
This will be a contest, not a giveaway, so at the end of January, I will decide which entry I like best. I'll be judging on impressiveness, skill, and creativity, so anyone can enter to win. (Don't tell me you have no talent; I know you can think of something.)
Okay! Get out there and CREATE!
And yes, this is international. :) (Haha! I remembered this time)

Did any of you lovely readers get awesome books or reading gadgets this Christmas??

Jessica Rules, Book Two
by Beth Fantaskey
Harcourt Children's Books
Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads
The highly anticipated sequel to Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side.
When Jessica Packwood found out she was a Romanian vampire princess, she had the shock of her teenage life. Turns out that was the easy part. Now, married to Prince Lucius Vladescu, she has to claim her throne and convince a vampire nation she’s fit to be their queen. But Jess can’t even order a decent meal from her castle’s Romanian staff, let alone deal with devious undead subjects who would love to see her fail.
And when Lucius is accused of murdering a vampire Elder and imprisoned without the blood he needs, Jessica finds herself alone, fighting for both their survivals.
Desperate to clear her husband’s name and win his release, Jess enlists the help of her best friend Mindy Stankowicz and Lucius’s mysterious Italian cousin, Raniero Lovatu. But both of them are keeping some dark secrets. Can Jess figure out who to trust – and how to rise to power – before she loses everything, including the vampire she loves?
Full of romance, mystery, and danger, the highly anticipated sequel to Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side shows that sometimes a princess has to earn her “happily ever after” – with a sharpened stake in hand.
I just loved the first book in this series, it really was a wonderful mixture of romance, humor and vampire lore. So I can not wait to read the second.
