Betrayal by Jaimey Grant

England 1816. Bri has been running for years. Just when she thinks she may have escaped those pursuing her, she finds herself thrown into Newgate Prison...where Adam finds her. Hired by Bri's family, he is determined to return the heiress posthaste. When it becomes clear that her family does NOT have her best interests at heart, she must accept Adam's help, something her pride will not allow.

Tifferz Take:
I enjoyed this book even though it has to be the darkest book I have read so far. I was surprised that it did not bother me. This is the first book I have read of Jaimey Grant. I can tell you it will not be the last. I felt the characters are very well written and you could understand their feelings and what caused their actions. The story had a really good flow to it and was written really well. (This book did have rape and abuse in it.) I purchased this book.

The Hourglass Door by Lisa Mangum

From the Cover:
Abby Edmunds's senior year of high school is going according to plan: good friends, cute boyfriend, and college applications in the mail. But when Dante Alexander, foreign-exchange student from Italy, arrives, he turns her life upside down and Abby finds herself drawn into a mystery whose roots reach into sixteenth-century Florence and she uncovers a dangerous truth that threatens not only her future, but the future of those she loves."

Tifferz Take:
The Hourglass Door was a very slow read. I felt the story really did not get interesting till 3/4 of the way into the book. The ending was really unrealistic. It was a clean! Just kissing. Lets just say not my favorite book and won't be reading this one again. I am glad my friend let me read it.

To Echo the Past by Marcia Lynn McClure

As her family abandoned the excitement of the city for the uneventful lifestyle of a small, western town, Brynn Clarkston's worst fears were realized. Stripped of her heart's hopes and dreams, Brynn knew true loneliness. Until an ordinary day revealed a heavenly oasis in the desert . . . Michael McCall. Handsome and irresistibly charming, Michael McCall (the son of legendary horse breeder Jackson McCall) seemed to offer wild distraction and sincere friendship to Brynn. But could Brynn be content with mere friendship when her dreams of Michael involved so much more?

Tifferz Take:
I love Marcia's writing she has a way with words. This is a sequel to Desert Fire. (Which is another great read!!!)But you can easily read this book without reading Desert Fire first. This is a sweet romance I read in an afternoon. That was time well spent. When I was done I felt happy and satisfied:) Marcia's books are always super clean with lots kissing. Thanks Marcia!! I was glad I purchased this book so I can read and reread this book! I purchased this book.

Catching Fire(book 2) by Suzanne Collins

From the Cover:
Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
Tifferz Take:
This book is just as good as the first book The Hunger Games. You must read these books in order. I really really liked Catching Fire. This book will leave you hanging worse than the first.
I am desperate for book three which comes out this August. If you were crazy about The Hunger Games, you'll go crazy for Catching Fire. I purchased this book.

The Hunger Games(book 1) by Suzanne Collins

From the Cover:
Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When her sister is chosen by lottery, Katniss steps up to go in her place.

Tifferz Take:
First of all this book is not something I would normally pick up. My good friend told me I had to read it. She was right. I was sucked into the world of Katniss. I stayed up all night reading this one. It was worth every minute. Their is violence in this book, but not so over the top as to be distracting. I will say that at the end of this book leaves you hanging. I highly recommend this book! My friend let me barrow this but am going to be buying it. Yup it was that good.

The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester

From the cover:
Piper McCloud can fly. Just like that. Easy as pie. Problem is, the good folk of Lowland County are afraid of Piper. And her ma’s at her wit’s end. So it seems only fitting that she leave her parents’ farm to attend a top-secret, maximum-security school for kids with exceptional abilities. School is great at first with a bunch of new friends whose skills range from super-strength to super-genius. But Piper is special, even among the special. And there are consequences too dire to talk about. Too crazy to consider. And too dangerous to ignore.

Tifferz take:
I HIGHLY recommend this book it's squeaky clean! I found out about this book from Stephenie Meyer's website. This book is full of adventure anyone would love. I have to admit I got sucked into the story very quickly. The story is different and one that is definitely memorable. I let my 9 year old read it and she loved it and read it quickly. I would buy this book again!! I purchased this book.
