Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Books I Want To Reread!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and Bookish
This week's Top 10:
Top 10 Books I Want To Reread.

1) The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. I loved the books but I didn't have the chance to reread them yet.

2) Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. Just the first book. I need to get my Edward fix soon.

3) Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling! I think it's time to reread them again!

4) Tales of Otori by Lian Hearn. I read these books years ago. These were the first books I fall in love with. I need to read them again this time in English. 

5) Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. I read it while in high school the first 4 and I think there are 3 more I need to read.

6) Nevermore by Kelly Creagh. With the release of the second book being so way I need to re-visit this world soon.

7) Delirium by Lauren Oliver. I can't explain how much I love this one. I want to read it again and again. 

8) The Darkest Powers by Kelley Armstrong. Loved the series and the ending/conclusion was just perfect! 

I guess 8 will do. It's late and I can't think of any other books I'm dying to reread.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer TRAILER!

I just came across the trailer for the book The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin and I'm even more excited about the book now if possible. This must be the most well done book trailer I've seen. I love everything about it!

Here is the synopsis of the book and the trailer. What do you think? It comes out on September 27th. I think I need to go to the bookstore next week.

***Does anyone know why I can't copy paste pictures on blogger anymore??***

Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
It can.
She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.
There is.
She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.
She's wrong.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and Bookish
This week's Top 10:
Top 10 Sequels I'm Dying To Read.

1) Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh. OMG! I can't even tell you how bad I want to read this one and it won't be out until next summer!

2) Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver. The ending! I'm still in shock... 

3) A Beautiful Dark, book 2 currently untitled, by Jocelyn Davies. A Beautiful Dark is the first book in the series and the second doesn't have a tittle yet but I can't wait to read it! It ended with a cliffhanger so you can imagine. The first book in the series comes out later this month. 

4) Spellcaster by Cara Lynn Shultz. This is the second book of the Spellbound series and I'm really looking forward to it. 

5) Jessica Rules the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey. Loved the first one. 

6) Entice by Carrie Jones. I'm waiting for the 4th book to come out before I jump into this.

7) Supernaturally by Kiersten White. Adored Evie and very normal Lend, even though he is a paranormal. :P

8) Where She Went by Gayle Forman. Need to say more? 

9) Hourglass by Claudia Grey. 

10) Original Sin by Lisa Desrochers. Luc Cain...

What sequels are you dying to read?

Book Review: The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller

The Eternal Ones (Eternal Ones, #1)
Title: The Eternal Ones
Author: Kirsten Miller
Series: Eternal Ones, Book 1
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: 2010
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 411
Source: Bought it
My Rating: 3 stars

"So how does it work?" Haven asked. "How do people find each other again?"
"All I know is that we're drawn to the people we've loved before."
"And do we find each other in every life?"
The sorrow in Iain's face gave her a sense of how little she knew. "I look for you in every life, but I don't always find you. And sometimes I find you too late."
What if life refused to die?
Haven Moore can't control her visions of a past with a boy called Ethan, and a life in New York that ended in fiery tragedy. In our present, she designs beautiful dresses for her classmates with her best friend Beau. Dressmaking keeps her sane, since she lives with her widowed and heartbroken mother in her tyrannical grandmother's house in Snope City, a tiny town in Tennessee. Then an impossible group of coincidences conspire to force her to flee to New York, to discover who she is, and who she was.
In New York, Haven meets Iain Morrow and is swept into an epic love affair that feels both deeply fated and terribly dangerous. Iain is suspected of murdering a rock star and Haven wonders, could he have murdered her in a past life? She visits the Ouroboros Society and discovers a murky world of reincarnation that stretches across millennia. Haven must discover the secrets hidden in her past lives, and loves, before all is lost and the cycle begins again.
When The Eternal Ones got out I rushed to buy a copy because I'm such a sucker for love stories and this one promises a love that lasts forever. It deals with reincarnation and when I read the premise I knew in an instand that I'd love it. I haven't read anything before about true lovers being reincarnated and the idea behind the book was exciting and thrilling so I had big expectations when I picked it up. Having the love of your life find you in each life is awesome and epically romantic!

Unfortunately it wasn't what I was expecting. I couldn't see the connection between Iain and Haven and they barely spend any time together. There were of course a few scenes between them but it felt strange. There wasn't enough time between them to see the actual romance. Another downside that put me off at first and thought it was unnecessary was the first 150 pages. It dragged so long at the beginning that I was loosing patient and thought multiple of times to put it down. I understand that the author wanted to give us a feel of Haven's home situation but I think that it could have be done in less pages. I was more eager to learn about Iain's and Haven's story. ;) 

Another reason why I disliked the beginning was probably Haven's family and town. I think I must have found a character that I absolutely hate. Her grandmother was unbelievable! I could not understand this woman! When someone in your family has strange visions or whatever, you'll most likely take them to the doctor not to the priest for a quick exorcism. I got so mad that I had to put the book down for a couple of weeks before picking it up again.

The ending of the story didn't convince me. The bad guy of the story, which I won't name so I don't spoil anything to you, was really bad at being evil. I mean he had them and then left them go?? 

Will I read the next book All You Desire? Definitely. I haven't given up to this story and it has great potential. I'm curious to see what's next for Iain and Haven. Besides the title is just gorgeous!
