Cover Reveal: Broken Blood (Dirty Blood #5) by Heather Hildenbrand

I thought watching my Werewolf boyfriend get arrested for murder was the worst experience of my life. But then I was knocked out and dragged off to a cell of my own by the very people who were supposed to protect me from danger.

I thought being held prisoner in solitary confinement for weeks on end was the worst experience of my life. But then a visitor came, and I realized I’d been wrong all along. There are worse things than torture and death. Much worse.

He wants my blood. More than that, he wants to get into my head. To use my bond to control his army, to wipe the world clean of anything with dirty blood. I can’t let that happen, but if I don’t he’ll kill every single person I’ve ever cared about—beginning with my Werewolf pack.

The prophecy said I would have to make an impossible choice, but I must be doing this wrong—so far every choice I’ve made has only led to more pain and danger and death. Hunters are pitted against Werewolves and I’m alone in my war against Gordon Steppe. I can’t fight him off anymore; all I can do is try to keep him out of the important places. And I’m failing at even that.

I thought the demons were out there, clearly marked and clinging to the shadows. But they’re not. The monsters are within the ranks of those sworn to protect. The enemy is among us.
Are you as excited about this as I am? You should be. The Dirty Blood series by Heather Hildenbrand is one of my absolute favorite book series'. I CAN. NOT. WAIT. to get my little paws on this one!

It's Monday! What are you reading?

It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next

 I have pretty much failed at doing this meme every Monday. I've started this year in kind of a reading slump. I'm trying really hard to break it, but Netflix is my downfall. Is anyone else stoked that they added all of those cheesy Lifetime movies? (guilty pleasure!) I've also been spending a lot of time cleaning. Like DEEP cleaning. I've let it go for way to long and it's time to bleach it all down. I'm also still working on Insurgent, so I'm not going to list that below. Was it hard for anyone else to get into this one? I keep telling myself I have to be ready for the movie, but that's not helping. Anywho, on with the books...

Ten days, twelve competitors, two million pounds cash.

What at first appears to be a wonderful opportunity for Damien Banks turns out to be the worst nightmare he can imagine.

Trapped inside a house with eleven strangers, and a booming voice known only as 'The Landlord' controlling his every move, Damien will be forced to compete not only for the money, but for his life.

Let the games begin...



 Stephen King has always been one of my favorite authors, even tho there are many of his books that I haven't read. I've slowly been building a pretty nice collection just from going to thrift store so I figured it was time that I began reading some of them. Most of them are so massive that they're a little intimidating but I'm taking the plunge finally. I absolutely loved this movie as a kid so here's hoping the book is even better!

What are you reading this week? I'd love to know!

 I loved everything about this collection! It's like a private peek into the love lives of some of our favorite characters from YA novels. While I haven't read all the stories yet, I can't wait to finish it! I'm only familiar with 3 of the authors in this collection, but some of the stories I've read so far have made me want to read more! I've added to my already humongous TBR pile.

These stories are short, sweet and to the point. But you also get little details that you didn't get from the novels. Dream sequences, Love spells, just a hidden moment that we didn't see in the book. They are fantastic! And most of them are not crazy detailed, so I wouldn't really call this erotica, but I would recommend being over 18 to read these.

I can't wait to dive into some new to me authors now!

Review & Giveaway: Deviation (The Clone Chronicles #2) by Heather Hildenbrand

Title: Deviation
Author: Heather Hildenbrand
Publication Date: December 30, 2015
Source: Via Netgalley for review.

Until a month ago, eighteen-year-old Ven had never set foot outside the windowless warehouse where she was created. An Imitation of Raven Rogen, Ven spent her days confined in the lab, studying videos of her Authentic, all so she could step into Raven’s life at a moment’s notice.

Now, Ven lives in Raven’s penthouse apartment, kisses Raven’s boyfriend, and obeys every order from Raven’s dad, Titus Rogen—the very man who created her. But Ven has a secret plan. She doesn’t want Raven’s life. She wants her own.

In the action-packed sequel of Imitation, Ven wages a dangerous war against Titus. First she’ll free herself, then she’ll free every last Imitation. . . .

This is a new release of the previously self-published title.

I have previously reviewed Deviation before but a lot has happened since then! Heather Hildenbrand was picked up by a publishing company and rewrote it! So, of course I reread it! And I loved it even more than I loved the first version!

We pick up with Ven, Linc, Daniel, Melanie & more still trying to take down Titus Rogen. So many new things happen in Deviation that I'm not sure I can even tell you about them. I hate to give out spoilers, and I feel like the slightest detail is a spoiler! 

All the characters are the same, fantastic characters from book one, Imitation. Ven is awesome. She comes across as fearless, even tho we know she is scared out of her mind. She has such a huge heart and wants to trust and love everyone she comes in contact with. Well, with a few exceptions. Linc is still straight yum. I love everything about him! And we get to meet his mother in Deviation and she is everything a mother should be. Daniel is still Daniel, but we get to meet his Imitation, Neil. Neil is just one more example that Imitations are people too. He has a heart and feelings just like anyone else.

There are so many twists and turns in Deviation that it will keep you on the edge of your seat. Questions are answered and more questions arise. And the ending? Cliffhanger. It makes me even wonder how they can get out of the situation they have been put in. I can't wait to read the next book and find out!

The even cooler part? Imitation was chosen to be optioned for a TV Series for NBC! How freaking amazing would that be?! So basically, what I'm telling you is that you need to read these books. You won't regret it. You will love them. I promise!
