Coming Soon: Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

I don't even started this series yet and the third book of Caster Chronicles is going to be published soon! I have the first two books Beautiful Creatures & Beautiful Darkness, but haven't got the chance to flip through the pages just yet. But, for sure I will one day or another. So, I can't give much of a comment about this series. But, based on the reviews I've been reading through, the first two books did get good feedbacks. Furthermore, the covers for those two novels are just stunning (the reason why I bought them) and this one also the have the same charm. Have to get to them soon, I guess.

The Blurb

Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena's Claiming. Even Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals is affected - and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What - or who - will need to be sacrificed to save Gatlin?

For Ethan, the chaos is a frightening but welcome distraction. He's being haunted in his dreams again, but this time it isn't by Lena - and whatever is haunting him is following him out of his dreams and into his everyday life. Even worse, Ethan is gradually losing pieces of himself - forgetting names, phone numbers, even memories. He doesn't know why, and most days he's too afraid to ask.

Sometimes there isn't just one answer or one choice. Sometimes there's no going back. And this time there won't be a happy ending.

A fun weekly meme Hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading where readers share the teaser sentences from their current reads. This week's teaser is from a thriller/suspense novel from Andrea Kane, The Girl Who Disappeared Twice. I would like to give credit Netgalley for giving me the chance to read this E-book.

Advanced Rating: 4 Stars
The demon exploded in a shower of ichor and guts. - 1st line

I've been meaning to read this book for quite a long time but always forgetting to get to it. I love the cover. I bet the guy in suit featured on the cover is one of the Shadowhunters in this book. Well, I can see the tattoos shining! The cloth he wears, the clockwork gears and the clock tower give sense of the clockwork world and the time setting in which this story is taken place. For the story, I think this would be a good one. I've read City of Bones, and it impressed me. So I really hope that Clockwork Angel can give me the same impact. And since this is said to be a prequel to the Mortal Instruments, I'm eager to discover how this story is related to the Mortal Instruments world. 

Coming Soon: 11/22/63 by Stephen King

Let me first tell you what this is all about. Coming Soon is a segment in which I will post about the upcoming books from my favorite authors and most probably books that I would love to add into my personal collections. So, this segment is pretty much like a hybrid of Waiting On Wednesdays and On My Wishlist memes. This is not a meme though as this is just a personal segment at my blog, but you're always welcome to drop comments. Thanks! 


11/22/63 by Stephen King
Format: Hardcover, 960 pages
To be Published On: November 8, 2011
Publisher: Scribner
The Story (Goodreads): On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas. President Kennedy died, and the world change. If you had the chance to change history, would you? Would the consequences be worth it?
Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the students—a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer. Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk.

Not much later, Jake’s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane—and insanely possible—mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake’s life—a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time.
I started reading King's books with Duma Key. Though it was not a good read but there's something about King's storytelling that makes me want to read his other books. Then, I picked Under the Dome and read and this book had left me with a great satisfaction. I loved the characters, the story, and every single thing about the book is really amazing. And, this one 11/22/63 has an injection of historical in it and I think it would be a fantastic read.

Teaser: The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

Teaser Tuesdays: A fun weekly meme Hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading where readers share the teaser sentences from their current reads. This week's teaser is from Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth. I'm currently on page 739.

The Pillars of the Earth: Against the richly imagine backdrop of 12th century England, filled with intrigue and treachery, Follett draws the reader irresistibly into a wonderful epic of family drama, violent conflict and unswerving ambition. From humble stonemason to imperious monarch, the dreams, labours and loves of his characters come vividly to life.

Aliena shook her head. 'I couldn't bear to be parted from him. I love him too much.' 'If you love him,' Ellen said, 'go and find his father.' - The Pillars of the Earth pg. 738
