From the Review Pile

From the Review Pile October 10th 2013

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!

Do you ever feel like your never making any headway on your review pile? I do all the time it seems lately. It doesn't help the hubby has turned needy and hates when I read while he's home even if he is watching sports. My goal is 200 for the year but I don't think I'm going to make it which is a bummer. 

This weeks book is one I've had for a long while on my review pile but something keeps coming up and I never seem to get around to it.

Fall under the spell of Wake—the first book in an achingly beautiful new series by celebrated author Amanda Hocking—and lose yourself to the Watersong.

Gorgeous. Fearless. Dangerous. They're the kind of girls you envy; the kind of girls you want to hate. Strangers in town for the summer, Penn, Lexi and Thea have caught everyone's attention—but it’s Gemma who’s attracted theirs. She’s the one they’ve chosen to be part of their group.

Gemma seems to have it all—she’s carefree, pretty, and falling in love with Alex, the boy next door. He’s always been just a friend, but this summer they’ve taken their relationship to the next level, and now there’s no going back. Then one night, Gemma’s ordinary life changes forever. She’s taking a late night swim under the stars when she finds Penn, Lexi and Thea partying on the cove. They invite her to join them, and the next morning she wakes up on the beach feeling groggy and sick, knowing something is different.

Suddenly Gemma is stronger, faster, and more beautiful than ever. But her new powers come with a terrifying price. And as she uncovers the truth, she’s is forced to choose between staying with those she loves—or entering a new world brimming with dark hungers and unimaginable secrets.

Why it's still on the shelf? Honestly I've been on the fence. I liked her zombie series but I wanted a better ending and maybe that makes me a little nervous. My sister wants to read Wake so maybe we will read it together like we did her zombie series. Mermaids are also still a newer paranormal to me. I've only read a couple of books. One day soon I'll pull wake off the shelf. 

What do you have on your shelf? Have you read Wake? Did you enjoy it?
