I am Brittney. I am 26 from the Southern United States. You will find a wide verity of books here, I am not picky. I do tend to steer toward New Adult and YA fantasy, but I will read just about anything.
Bryn Aven is an outcast among the Kanin, the most powerful of the troll tribes.
apart by her heritage and her past, Bryn is a tracker who's determined
to become a respected part of her world. She has just one goal: become a
member of the elite King’s Guard to protect the royal family. She's not
going to let anything stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance
with her boss Ridley Dresden.
But all her plans for the future
are put on hold when Konstantin– a fallen hero she once loved – begins
kidnapping changelings. Bryn is sent in to help stop him, but will she
lose her heart in the process?
This is a review of the entire trilogy. I only put the summary of book one so it wouldn't spoil anything for those who haven't read it.
“Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the
past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not
her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose
where she’ll live—after she dies.
There is an eternal truth most
of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal,
and real life begins after death.
In the Everlife, two realms are
in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both
will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to
lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a
wild tug-of-war between the two realms who will do anything to win the
right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn
to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive
long enough to make a decision…
Why I Am Waiting...
I LOVE Gena Showalter, she is one of my favorite authors. This book sounds amazing!
This one is kind of tough. I have only read about 30 books this year, 20 short of the 50 that was my goal. So picking 10 might not be easy. This isn't in order of best to worst, just in the order I read them.
1. Dead of Winter by Kresley Cole
It was one of the first books I read this year, picking it up the day it came out, but it was by far the best. I love this series and I love Cole's writing style. It is beautiful and I can't wait until the next book.
2. Magnolia by Kristi Cook
This one surprised me. I picked it up after seeing Thoughts of Tomes review on youtube, just because I needed something to read. It was great. It is beautifully written and I loved the story and the characters!
3. The Young Elites
I listened to this book while I was on light duty for work. It was amazing, but I think it was the audio that made it so great for me. If you haven't read this book, or even if you have, I suggest getting the audiobook to go along with it.
4.After by Anna Todd
This book was my downfall, reading wise. After reading this book I HAD to go check it out of wattpad. While I was there I ended up reading more fanfiction and got sucked in. But this book is one of my favorite books period.
5. The Deal by Elle Kennedy
Words can't explain how much I love this book.
6. Frostfire by Amanda Hocking
This is one of the best YA series I have read. The writing is amazing and the story keeps you plowing through all three books.
7, 8, 9. 2B Trilogy by Ann Aguirre
I read this complete series, so I guess this goes for 7 8 and 9. They were all equally great.
10. The Book Of Ivy
This is the book I have read most recently, but it has to be the best YA book I have read all year, apart from the Kanin Chronicles.
When Tate Collins meets
airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They
wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only
thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction.
Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the
perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so
that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly
seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for
Never ask about the past. Don’t expect a future.
They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.
Hearts get infiltrated. Promises get broken. Rules get shattered. Love gets ugly.
Inspired by classic
fairy tales, but with a dark and sinister twist, Grim contains short
stories from some of the best voices in young adult literature today:

Auburn Reed has her
entire life mapped out. Her goals are in sight and there’s no room for
mistakes. But when she walks into a Dallas art studio in search of a
job, she doesn’t expect to find a deep attraction to the enigmatic
artist who works there, Owen Gentry.
For once, Auburn takes a
risk and puts her heart in control, only to discover Owen is keeping
major secrets from coming out. The magnitude of his past threatens to
destroy everything important to Auburn, and the only way to get her life
back on track is to cut Owen out of it.
The last thing Owen
wants is to lose Auburn, but he can’t seem to convince her that truth is
sometimes as subjective as art. All he would have to do to save their
relationship is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much
more destructive than the actual sin
Title: After We Fell Author: Anna Tood
This is the third book in the series, so I will not be putting the summary or the link to this book here.
After a brutal nuclear
war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors
eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which
family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years
later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the
losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual.
This year, it is my turn.
name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill the president’s
son—my soon-to-be husband—and restore the Westfall family to power.
Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled actor or he’s not the cruel,
heartless boy my family warned me to expect. He might even be the one
person in this world who truly understands me. But there is no escape
from my fate. I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy.
Because Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him…
Wow, I didn't expect to like this book as much as I did. It has been sitting on my shelf forever. I needed something to read and asked my boyfriend to pick a number and when I counted on my bookshelf, this was the book he had picked. And I am really glad he did, because if not, I probably would have never picked it up and that would have been a shame. Because it was fantastic!
Now, I am only on Opal, but I LOVE this series and the author. I have read several books by her and she is simply amazing, though I can never put my finger on why. This book is told from Deamon's POV during the first book.
