To - Read in October 2013

Good Morning.../Good Afternoon...
What am I reading this month, you ask? Well here it is:
P.S I will do reviews continually through the month as I finish each book.

The Catcher in the Rye

By J.D Salinger

I don't know if any of you have read or seen the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower (if you haven't and your over 15, go buy it now!), but I watched the movie, and really liked it. Then, everyone was telling me this book was like it, so I HAD to go buy it.
Description: The Catcher in the Rye is a 1951 novel by J. D. Salinger. Originally published for adults, it has been translated into almost all of the world's major languages. Around 250,000 copies are sold each year, with total sales of more than sixty-five million. The novel's protagonist and antihero, Holden Caulfield, has become an icon for teenage rebellion.
The novel was among the 100 best English-language novels from 1951 to 2005 as chosen by Time, and named by Modern Library and its readers as one of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. It has been frequently challenged in the United States for its liberal use of profanity and portrayal of sexuality and teenage angst. It also deals with complex issues of identity, belonging, connection and alienation.

Sometimes It Lasts (Sea Breeze #5)

By Abbi Glines

I started the Sea Breeze series back in the summer and have been reading them all since. I really want this book in paperback, but it doesn't come out until June 3rd, 2014. After reading While It Lasts, I was so happy they were coming out with another book with Eva and Cage.
Description: Cage York has to choose between a love of the game and a love of the girl in this sultry Sea Breeze novel from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines.
After waiting for his big break, bad boy Cage York is finally called up to prove his worth in the college baseball arena. But when Cage’s girlfriend, Eva, mourns the sudden loss of her father, it’s not Cage’s comforting arms she runs to, but those of her former fiancĂ©’s twin brother, Jeremy.
Torn between his baseball dream and the girl of his dreams, Cage must prove he’s worthy of Eva’s love, or risk losing her to Jeremy forever.

Near and Far (Lost and Found #2)

By Nicole Williams

I don't know if you caught on before on one of my previous posts, but the Crash trilogy by Nicole Williams (Crash, Clash, Crush) is one of my all time favourite books. After reading them, I knew I wanted to read more Nicole Williams, so I ordered Lost and Found and Near and Far on Then, the third one came out (titled Finders Keepers). It is all just so exciting. I will be doing a post on Finders Keepers at some point.
Description: There’s optimistic. And there’s Jesse Walker. If he wasn’t so charming, his sunny disposition and incessant grin would get old. Fast. Falling in love with the broken girl who had at first seemed immune to anything resembling love was the best thing to happen to Jesse since the Walkers adopted him when he was five. As Jesse’s life continues at the ranch and Rowen begins making her mark in the Seattle art community, they wonder where the middle ground is. Or if there even is one. As push comes to shove, they’re forced to make choices neither are eager to make, and Jesse and Rowen have to face what their lives might look like without the other. Can two people with such tragic pasts and different presents expect a promising future together? Whatever the answer, they’ll need a lot more than love to make it.

*This is a new adult book*

The Liberator (Collector #2)

By Victoria Scott

I read The Collector in September (I will post my review later). I heard that it was kind of like Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout, which is another really good book. Anyhow, I enjoyed The Collector and said, oh what the heck, I'll read the next one. So, I asked the library to put it on hold for me, and now I'm just waiting to pick it up.
Description: Dante has a shiny new cuff wrapped around his ankle, and he doesn't like that mess one bit. His new accessory comes straight from Big Guy himself and marks the former demon as a liberator. Despite his gritty past and bad boy ways, Dante Walker has been granted a second chance.
When Dante is given his first mission as a liberator to save the soul of seventeen-year-old Aspen, he knows he’s got this. But Aspen reminds him of the rebellious life he used to live and is making it difficult to resist sinful temptations. Though Dante is committed to living clean for his girlfriend Charlie, this dude’s been a playboy for far too long… and old demons die hard. 
With Charlie becoming the girl she was never able to be pre-makeover and Aspen showing him how delicious it feels to embrace his inner beast, Dante will have to go somewhere he never thought he’d return to in order to accomplish the impossible: save the girl he’s been assigned to, and keep the girl he loves.

Apollyon (Covenant #4)

Jennifer L. Armentrout

Apollyon (Covenant, #4)
I finished reading Deity (Covenant #3) on September 1st 2013. I've been wanting to read this for a while because the ending of Deity (Covenant #3) and Elixir (Covenant #3.5), I've been wanting to read this along with Origin (Lux #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
Description: Fate isn't something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex. Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back. The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn't the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries. Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.
