REVIEW:

Fallen AngelFALLEN ANGEL BY HEATHER TERRELL
(Dec. 28th 2010)
Heaven-sent?

Ellie was never particularly good at talking to boys—or anyone other than her best friend and fellow outcast, Ruth. Then she met Michael.

Michael is handsome, charming, sweet. And totally into Ellie. It’s no wonder she is instantly drawn to him. But Michael has a secret. And he knows Ellie is hiding something, too. They’ve both discovered they have powers beyond their imagining. Powers that are otherworldly.

Ellie and Michael are determined to uncover what they are, and how they got this way . . . together. But the truth has repercussions neither could have imagined. Soon they find themselves center stage in an ancient conflict that threatens to destroy everything they love. And it is no longer clear whether Ellie and Michael will choose the same side.

In this electrifying novel, Heather Terrell spins a gripping supernatural tale about true love, destiny, and the battle of good versus evil.

(So far I'm not sure about this one- it's a bit slow.....)


TrappedTRAPPED  BY MICHAEL NORTHROP *SIGNED ARC!

The day the blizzard started, no one knew that it was going to keep snowing for a week. That for those in its path, it would become not just a matter of keeping warm, but of staying alive....

Scotty and his friends Pete and Jason are among the last seven kids at their high school waiting to get picked up that day, and they soon realize that no one is coming for them. Still, it doesn't seem so bad to spend the night at school, especially when distractingly hot Krista and Julie are sleeping just down the hall. But then the power goes out, then the heat. The pipes freeze, and the roof shudders. As the days add up, the snow piles higher, and the empty halls grow colder and darker, the mounting pressure forces a devastating decision....

Wow! Incredible mailbox this week. Sadly, I haven't read any of them, but I'm very interested in Incarceron and Stork. I look forward to your reviews. And that book, Blizzard, is sadly how I feel lately. I am tired of being snowed in! :)

I understand the Fallen Angel being slow thing. But I still can't stop reading it somehow. I also find unearthly a tad bit slow.
Hope you enjoy happy reading XD

I am soo jealous that you got Trapped--I've been waiting to read that forever! And I'll definitely be waiting to read your thoughts on Stork; my library doesn't own it and I'm not sure if I should buy it for my nook.

Here's my IMM, if you'd like to check it out:
