Spider's Revenge by Jennifer Estep
If I Die by Rachel Vincent

No Posting This Last Weekend

what's been happening
This week I've read Spider's Revenge and If I Die. Not too bad considering how busy this week has been! We've fixed a spot on the roof, went to dinner with some friends, I've been sorting through emails trying to decide which books I want to accept for review ( one of which is... IRON KNIGHT!  More on that later!), celebrating my 42nd birthday with 7 layer Taco Dip & Turtle Brownie Ala Mode! Yummo! Shopping for paint for the living room and dinner room. We decided on Platinum Band for the LR and I think the name is Silver Clouds for the dining room. And this afternoon some friends, who are more like sisters, are having a small get together for my birthday! LOL! It's been awhile since I've had more than just my kids, Jim & his mom to celebrate my birthday! I know that isn't all that was accomplished this week, but it's all I can think of right now! 

So, how was your week?

If I Die
by Rachel Vincent

The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee's no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee—she screams when someone dies.
But the next scream might be for Kaylee.
Yeah—it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend's needy ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren't quite human, either.
But Kaylee's borrowed lifeline is nearing its end. And those who care about her will do anything to save her life.

my thoughts~
I've been trying to get caught up with my reading from the summer, and I could just kick myself for not reading this book sooner! In my not so humble opinion, If I Die is the BEST book so far in the Soul Screamers series! Don't get me wrong, the others were fantastic too, but this one well, I will just say somethings have happened in this book to make me a very happy reader! I just finished reading this book this morning and I can't wait to see what happens next and how will Kaylee deal with it!

Spider's Revenge
by Jennifer Estep

Old habits die hard for assassins.
And I plan on murdering someone before the night is through.

Killing used to be my regular gig, after all. Gin Blanco, aka the Spider, assassin-for-hire. And I was very, very good at it. Now, I’m ready to make the one hit that truly matters: Mab Monroe, the dangerous Fire elemental who murdered my family when I was thirteen. Oh, I don’t think the mission will be easy, but turns out it’s a bit more problematic than expected. The bitch knows I’m coming for her. So now I’m up against the army of lethal bounty hunters Mab hired to track me down. She also put a price on my baby sister’s head. Keeping Bria safe is my first priority. Taking Mab out is a close second. Good thing I’ve got my powerful Ice and Stone magic—and my irresistible lover, Owen Grayson—to watch my back. This battle has been years in the making, and there’s a good chance I won’t survive. But if I’m going down, then Mab’s coming with me . . . no matter what I have to do to make that happen.

my thoughts~
I couldn't wait to read the 5th installment of Jennifer Esteps Elemental Assasign Series, and Spider's Revenge did NOT disappoint! So many of the questions that I had were answered, there was also so much action in this book. There has been a lot of action in the previous book, but this book is the best one so far! I love seeing Gin & Bria's relationship grow, as well as Gin's relationship with Owen. And one of the best things...I started reading Spider's Revenge thinking this would be the final book in the series, but it isn't! The next book is By A Thread and I can't wait!

No Posting This Last Weekend

Sorry about not posting Weekly Wrap Up and In My Mailbox this last weekend! I meant to do it, I really did, but my closet needed cleaning out and I started re-reading Intertwined by Gina Showalter (so I can then re-read Unraveled and then read Twisted!) But in between all that we also gave both dogs a bath (which they enjoyed) and the cat (who did not enjoy it at all, and stayed upset with me the rest of the day. Anyway, I will hopefully be posting my review of Twisted soon, and I will try to get WWU & IMM out this coming weekend! Have a great week!
