Hearts At Stake by Alyxandra Harvey

I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next one in the series. At times the storyline reminded me alot of the Twilight saga with it's own twists and turns.

The story is about Lucy and Solange, they are best friends. Solange has a vast family vampire history which makes her very desireable and also the queen. That is, once she turns sixteen, she will complete the change.
The author has written the book to flop back and forth between Lucy and Solange's point of view, which I love, although, can get confusing at times due to having to remember whom the "I" is when reading the story.

There was plenty of action, drama and romance. This book was well written and a great read! Definately 5 stars!!!

The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate

I was not quite sure what to expect from this book. It does seem like a younger teen read. The writing style is very simple, but I love that type of writing. The main character of Natalie was interesting, with a one track mind.....being crowned Palmetto Princess with her boyfriend crowned as Prince. A simple joke against a competitor turns out to be their worst nightmare. With a huge surprise at the end, which I totally was not expecting, this was a very good read.

I have read many reviews of this book. Most people's opinions are that this is their favorite book in the series so far. Unfortunately, I disagree. The book felt drawn out with a huge climax right at the end. There are so many different aliases for the characters that it becomes very confusing unless you pay close attention to the details. My favorite part of the book was the fact that each chapter was a different characters point of view. I love when authors incorporate different views into their writing, it brings the other characters to life. I will continue with the series. I love the authors take on the whole vampire theme.

Remember Me by Christopher Pike

I had purchased this book as a trilogy. All three books were bound together into one book, which made for a very long read, approximately 800 pages.

The first book, which was called Remember Me, was a very good read. The story begins by introducing the main character, Shari Cooper and her family and friends. Shari goes to a friends party and is shoved over a balcony to her death. The rest of the book is Shari trying to figure out what happened to her. In my opinion, this was the best book of the trilogy.

The second book was my least favorite. It was alot of afterlife and religion.

The third book jumps ahead a few years, this book was my second favorite, but was still a little confusing at parts.

Would I suggest this book? Probably, but I would recommend taking your time reading it.
