Hey guys! Hope you all had a great weekend! This is the beginning of the last few days of me being 22!! Which I find crazy… where is the time going?!? Anyway, this weeks pick for me is a book that I have had on my TBR for years now and I am hoping to be able to grab a copy this week! So, we shall see!


Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Published: January 4th 2011 by HarperTeen

In the beginning, there’s a boy standing in the trees…
Clara Gardner has recently learned that she’s part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn’t easy.

Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place and out of place at the same time. Because there’s another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara’s less angelic side.

As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she’d have to make between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?

Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.

Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted at Breaking the Spine

Hey guys! This weeks pick is a recent find and it sounds so fun! I absolutely cannot wait for its release later this year!

The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand

Expected Publication: November 7th 2017 by HarperTeen

On Christmas Eve five years ago, Holly was visited by three ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she’d become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways.

She didn’t.

And then she died.

Now she’s stuck working for the top-secret company Project Scrooge–as the latest Ghost of Christmas Past.

Every year, they save another miserly grouch. Every year, Holly stays frozen at seventeen while her family and friends go on living without her. So far, Holly’s afterlife has been miserable.

But this year, everything is about to change. . . .

I love A Christmas Carol, so I cannot wait to see what the author has done with this story!

the last time we say goodbye

The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand

Published: February 10th 2015 by Harper Teen

There’s death all around us.
We just don’t pay attention.
Until we do.

The last time Lex was happy, it was before. When she had a family that was whole. A boyfriend she loved. Friends who didn’t look at her like she might break down at any moment.

Now she’s just the girl whose brother killed himself. And it feels like that’s all she’ll ever be.

As Lex starts to put her life back together, she tries to block out what happened the night Tyler died. But there’s a secret she hasn’t told anyone-a text Tyler sent, that could have changed everything.

Lex’s brother is gone. But Lex is about to discover that a ghost doesn’t have to be real to keep you from moving on.

I have literally heard so many amazing things about this book it is unreal! I have been meaning to pick myself up a copy since last year – clearly I am a bit of an idiot because I forgot all about it! Definitely going to get my hands on a copy of this some time soon!

Have you read this book? Did you like it?
