Book Review: Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel

Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Publish Date: August 3, 2010
Paperback, 310 pages

My Review:
Why I read this:  I received a copy of this from the publisher (St. Martin's Griffin) through Shelf Awareness.  I wanted it because I was completely intrigued by the plot of the book.

How is the novel driven:  For this one it's a little tough to say but I think I'm going to go with character-driven.  There is a main plot event the book is leading to, but I think learning about Lenah's character and some about the other vampires and the kids at the school really drives the book.

My thoughts:

With all the vampires out there now, it's really hard to be wowed by any of them.  Some do really wow you though and we all have our personal favorites.  Lenah is quickly becoming one of mine.  Ms. Maizel writes beautifully and crafts the story so well.  I was completely sucked into Lenah's life, both in the past and in the present.  I loved seeing how she was and who she was becoming.

As I've mentioned before I love the boarding school setting, so that was a contributing factor to my wanting to read it as well.  Here the school plays a role, but it's not a major one, Lenah really plays the major role.  The other characters were great as well.  I loved Tony who is Lenah's sidekick from the time she arrives at the school.  Yes he can be a little moody but I loved his wit and his artistic side.  Justin was pretty good as well.  He's the cliched most-popular boy at school, but through the story you learn there is more to him as well.

Overall, this book was an amazing experience.  I really didn't expect to be that swept away by this book, but once I started reading it I could not put it down.  I am already eager for the next book in the series and to what direction the series takes next.

My Rating:  4.5/5.0

About the Book:
When Lenah Beaudonte, a 500-year-old vampire queen, wakes up a human teenager at an ultra-cliquey prep school, she must choose between embracing the humanity she’s always craved and saving her new friends from her vicious coven. The first in a sizzling new YA series.

Lenah Beaudonte is, in many ways, your average teen: the new girl at Wickham Boarding School, she struggles to fit in enough to survive and stand out enough to catch the eye of the golden-boy lacrosse captain. But Lenah also just happens to be a recovering five-hundred-year-old vampire queen. After centuries of terrorizing Europe, Lenah is able to realize the dream all vampires have -- to be human again. After performing a dangerous ritual to restore her humanity, Lenah entered a century-long hibernation, leaving behind the wicked coven she ruled over and the eternal love who has helped grant her deep-seated wish.

Until, that is, Lenah draws her first natural breath in centuries at Wickham and rediscovers a human life that bears little resemblance to the one she had known. As if suddenly becoming a teenager weren’t stressful enough, each passing hour brings Lenah closer to the moment when her abandoned coven will open the crypt where she should be sleeping and find her gone. As her borrowed days slip by, Lenah resolves to live her newfound life as fully as she can. But, to do so, she must answer ominous questions: Can an ex-vampire survive in an alien time and place? What can Lenah do to protect her new friends from the bloodthirsty menace about to descend upon them? And how is she ever going to pass her biology midterm?

The Map of True Places
The Map of True Places by Brunonia Barry
Publisher: William Morrow
Publish Date: April 15, 2010
Hardcover, 432 pages

About the Book:
Zee Finch has come a long way from a motherless childhood spent stealing boats—a talent that earned her the nickname Trouble. She's now a respected psychotherapist working with the world-famous Dr. Liz Mattei. She's also about to marry one of Boston's most eligible bachelors. But the suicide of Zee's patient Lilly Braedon throws Zee into emotional chaos and takes her back to places she though she'd left behind.

What starts as a brief visit home to Salem after Lilly's funeral becomes the beginning of a larger journey for Zee. Her father, Finch, long ago diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, has been hiding how sick he really is. His longtime companion, Melville, has moved out, and it now falls to Zee to help her father through this difficult time. Their relationship, marked by half-truths and the untimely death of her mother, is strained and awkward.

Overwhelmed by her new role, and uncertain about her future, Zee destroys the existing map of her life and begins a new journey, one that will take her not only into her future but into her past as well. Like the sailors of old Salem who navigated by looking at the stars, Zee has to learn to find her way through uncharted waters to the place she will ultimately call home.

About the Author (from
Born and raised in Massachusetts, Brunonia Barry studied literature and creative writing at Green Mountain College in Vermont and at the University of New Hampshire and was one of the founding members of the Portland Stage Company. While still an undergraduate at UNH, Barry spent a year living in Dublin and auditing Trinity College classes on James Joyce's Ulysses.

Barry's love of theater led to a first job in Chicago where she ran promotional campaigns for Second City, Ivanhoe, and Studebaker theaters. After a brief stint in Manhattan, where she studied screenwriting at NYU, Barry relocated to California because she had landed an agent and had an original script optioned. Working on a variety of projects for several studios, she continued to study screenwriting and story structure with Hollywood icon Robert McKee, becoming one of the nine writers in his Development Group.

Brunonia's love for writing and storytelling has taken her all across the country but after nearly a decade in Hollywood, Barry returned to Massachusetts where, along with her husband, she co-founded an innovative company that creates award-winning word, visual and logic puzzles. In recent years, she has written books for the Beacon Street Girls, a fictional series for 'tweens. Happily married, Barry lives with her husband and her "only child" that just happens to be a 12-year-old Golden Retriever named Byzantium. The Lace Reader is her first original novel.

Brightly Woven by by Alexandra Bracken

Brightly Woven

Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken
Publisher: EgmontUSA
Publish Date: March 23, 2010
Hardcover, 368 pages

My Review:

Why did I read this?  I read it through the 1-ARC Tours website.  The cover and the premise caught  my eye.  I really like fantasy books and this one seemed perfect.

What did I think?

Alexandra Bracken does a marvelous job of weaving this story and getting the reader's interest.  I loved reading this because the story unfolded before my eyes.  I learned more and more about the kingdom and the characters by turning each page.  Sydelle and Wayland came to life before my eyes.  I delighted in the charater of Sydelle.  A girl who knew what she wanted to do and would do it at all costs.  Along the way while finding her strength and chasing her destiny, she finds love as well.  I loved that storyline as well as the main one of adventure.

I know I have read some reviews that have had a problem with the romance between Sydelle and North, but I really didn't.  While reading the book I fully understood how it happened.  But that goes to show how different people read a book different ways.

Brightly Woven is a great book for those who love a fantasy world in their books. Magic, mayhem and love all come through in Brightly Woven with a great story.  I was completely absorbed into the story of Brightly Woven and entertained through the entire book.

My Rating:  4.25/5.0

About the Book:
Sydelle Mirabil is living proof that, with a single drop of rain, a life can be changed forever. Tucked away in the farthest reaches of the kingdom, her dusty village has suffered under the weight of a strangely persistent drought. That is, of course, until a wizard wanders into town and brings the rain with him.

In return for this gift, Wayland North is offered any reward he desires—and no one is more surprised than Sydelle when, without any explanation, he chooses her. Taken from her home, Sydelle hardly needs encouragement to find reasons to dislike North. He drinks too much and bathes too little, and if that isn’t enough to drive her to madness, North rarely even uses the magic he takes such pride in possessing. Yet, it’s not long before she realizes there’s something strange about the wizard, who is as fiercely protective of her as he is secretive about a curse that turns his limbs a sinister shade of black and leaves him breathless with agony. Unfortunately, there is never a chance for her to seek answers.

Along with the strangely powerful quakes and storms that trace their path across the kingdom, other wizards begin to take an inexplicable interest in her as well, resulting in a series of deadly duels. Against a backdrop of war and uncertainty, Sydelle is faced with the growing awareness that these events aren’t as random as she had believed—that no curse, not even that of Wayland North, is quite as terrible as the one she herself may carry.

About the Author (from
Alexandra Bracken wrote Brightly Woven as a birthday present for a friend, and the story grew and flourished during a year of unpredictable, wild weather. A native of Arizona, she is a recent graduate of the College of William and Mary, where she majored in History and English. She now lives in New York City.

Book Review: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (Infernal Devices #1)
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry
Publish Date: August 31, 2010
Hardcover, 496 pages

My Review:

First off, I read this through a tour website (Book it Forward).  I chose this one because I read the first book City of Bones in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare and was intrigued by her world building and her characters and plots.  So when I saw she had a  new book coming out starting a new series, I jumped right in.

So what did I think?  I think this is going to be a great series.  A lot of the world building was done in this book like all first books in the series.  I loved getting to know the differing people/kinds that inhabited late 19th century London.  I'm guessing this is steampunk, but since I'm really not familiar with that subgenre I can't say for sure.  Whatever it is, it makes a great book.

I enjoyed the characters, loved Tessa who is strong but feminine.  She makes a great heroine for this book.  I also enjoyed the various Shadowhunters that make their appearance in the book, Will, Jem, Charlotte, Henry and Jessamine.  All the characters are being developed as the book goes along and I enjoyed getting to know each of them, and look forward to getting to know them better as the series progresses.

I also enjoyed the love-triangle of sorts between Tessa, Jem and Will.  I don't know which team I would be on if I had to choose because I really like Jem and Will both.

So Clockwork Angel has a great characters, a great setting, some real action, great plot, some romance and amazing world building.  It has me anxious for the next book in the series and to get back to reading the Mortal Instruments series as well.  Ms. Clare has a flare for writing and I enjoy her style and ability to put her ideas on paper.

I don't often do this, but I did mark a favorite quote while reading this book.  It's from Will, who I adored, such a smart alack and so fun:
“Are you implying that shreds of my reputation remain intact?” Will demanded with mock horror.  “Clearly I have been doing something wrong.  Or not doing something wrong, as the case may be.”  He banged on the side of the carriage. “Thomas! We must away at once to the nearest brothel! I seek scandal and low companionship.”

My Rating:  4.25/5.0

About the Book:
Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still.

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: Jem, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

Book Review: Losing Faith by Denise Jaden

Losing Faith by Denise Jaden
Publisher:Simon Pulse
Publish Date: September 7, 2010
Paperback, 400 pages

My Review:

Losing Faith has a lot going on in it and Denise Jaden does a wonderful job of tying it all together and presenting it in a wonderful package that keeps you in suspense and keeps you engaged with the characters at the same time.

At first I wasn't sure what I thought of Brie, she seemed a little self-centered.  Then I thought back to my high school years and what teenage girl isn't self-centered?  Who doesn't want to meet up with their boyfriend at any cost?  However Brie's sister, Faith's death really does a lot to change Brie.  Brie was always second-best to her sister in the family and after Faith's death her parents further disengage from her while trying to keep a tighter leash on her at the same time.  Brie acts out some, but as her life changes so does she and ultimately she wants to get to the bottom of Faith's death which she does not believe was suicide.

I enjoyed the wide span of characters in this book, from Faith and her friend Celeste who were the goody-goody type girls, to Brie who was somewhere in the middle to Amy and Dustin the uber-popular people (for a time) and Tessa who is the scary girl we all remember from high school.  I also liked the introduction of Alis to shake things up a bit more, and introduce a love interest for Brie.

Suspense, religion, romance, teenage angst, this book has it all and it is all well-done.  Losing Faith was an amazing read that hooked me in the beginning and when it was done I was well-satisfied with the conclusion.  Great from start-to-finish!

My Rating:  4.25/5.0

About the Book:
When Brie's sister, Faith, dies suddenly, Brie's world falls apart. As she goes through the bizarre and devastating process of mourning the sister she never understood and barely even liked, everything in her life seems to spiral farther and farther off course. Her parents are a mess, her friends don't know how to treat her, and her perfect boyfriend suddenly seems anything but.

As Brie settles into her new normal, she encounters more questions than closure: Certain facts about the way Faith died just don't line up. Brie soon uncovers a dark and twisted secret about Faith's final night...a secret that puts her own life in danger. 

About the Author:
Denise Jaden lives just outside Vancouver, Canada. When she’s not writing, she can often be found homeschooling her son or dancing with her Polynesian dance troupe. Losing Faith is her first novel.
