So I wanted to write a little bit about some changes on this blog which may occur until about December of this year. As some of you may already know I am in Nursing School... as in no life, no family, no sleep and "Oh Yea" no life until my next break.
I'm going to be here... just a lot less. I probably won't be reading many books except these...
So please don't be mad at me when I'm not here a lot. I promise I'll get done as soon as I can.
Vivi’s animal instincts are her legacy—and maybe her downfall—in this start to a romantic fantasy series that will appeal to fans of The Nine Lives of Chloe King. Vivi has known the truth about her family—and herself—since she was thirteen. But that doesn’t mean she’s accepted it. Being Haguari isn’t something she feels she’ll ever accept. How can she feel like anything but a freak knowing that it’s in her genes to turn into a jaguar? Now eighteen, Vivi’s ready to break away from the traditions of her heritage. But all of that changes with the shocking, devastating deaths of her parents and the mysteries left behind. Vivi discovers family she never even knew she had, and a life open with possibility. New friends, new loyalties, and even romance all lay ahead—but so do dangers unlike anything Vivi ever could have imagined.
I chose this book because I love the whole inner animal thing. I have always been a huge fan of myths, legends and story's about how people are able to turn into animals, there are so many in so many different cultures. This book really hits on that inner animal and instincts. I can't wait to read it!
"A virus that had once been contained has returned, and soon no place will be left untouched by its destruction. But when Cheyenne wakes up in Elysian Fields--a subdivision cut off from the world and its monster-creating virus--she is thrilled to have a chance at survival. At first, Elysian Fields,with its beautiful houses and manicured lawns, is perfect. Teo Richardson, the older man who stole Cheyenne's heart, built it so they could be together. But when Teo tells Cheyenne there are tests that she and seven other couples must pass to be worthy of salvation, Cheyenne begins to question the perfection of his world. The people they were before are gone. Cheyenne is now "Persephone," and each couple has been re-named to reflect the most tragic romances ever told. Everyone is fighting to pass the test, to remain in Elysian Fields. Teo dresses them up, tells them when to move and how to act, and in order to pass the test, they must play along. If they play it right, then they'll be safe. But if they play it wrong, they'll die."
I picked this book for my Waiting on Wednesday post because of its cover! I know, I know. Never judge a book by its cover, but I could not help it. This cover was just so neat looking and I was instantly drawn to it. On the plus side this is so my kind of book! It's so out there and dystopian that I could not pass it up!
