INSPIRE (Book 1):

Kalliope lives with one purpose.

To inspire.

As an immortal muse, she doesn’t have any other choice. It’s part of how she was made. Musicians, artists, actors—they use her to advance their art, and she uses them to survive. She moves from one artist to the next, never staying long enough to get attached. But all she wants is a different life— a normal one. She’s spent thousands of years living lie after lie, and now she’s ready for something real.

Sweet, sexy, and steady, Wilder Bell feels more real than anything else in her long existence. And most importantly… he’s not an artist. He doesn’t want her for her ability. But she can’t turn off the way she influences people, not even to save a man she might love. Because in small doses, she can help make something beautiful, but her ability has just as much capacity to destroy as it does to create. The longer she stays, the more obsessed Wilder will become. It’s happened before, and it never turns out well for the mortal.

Her presence may inspire genius.

But it breeds madness, too.

About INFLICT (Book 2):

Wilder Bell made a dangerous bargain...

For a chance at love, he gave up his life.

History knew Kalliope as an ancient Greek muse, but to Wilder, she was simply the woman he wanted to fall asleep with every night and wake up next to every morning. He made a deal with Hades, but the only thing the Lord of the Underworld deals in is death. Now Wilder is wasting away in a cold and wretched afterlife, waiting for Kalli to come for him. She will come. He has to believe that. Because the alternative is worse than death.

Kalliope lived her entire existence knowing that she was both a blessing and a curse to anyone she encountered. Wilder was no different. She loved him, and she got him killed. Now to get him back, she’ll have to face a scheming god, a perilous task, and death itself. But before it’s done, the Underworld will take more from her than she ever thought possible.

To be made whole, all must first be lost.

Most Likely to Succeed by Jennifer Echols

Most Likely to Succeed (Superlatives #3)

by Jennifer Echols

Publisher: Simon Pulse

Release Date: August 4th 2015

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Realistic Fiction


In this sexy conclusion to The Superlatives trilogy from Endless Summer author Jennifer Echols, Sawyer and Kaye might just be perfect for each other—if only they could admit it.

As vice president of Student Council, Kaye knows the importance of keeping order. Not only in school, but in her personal life. Which is why she and her boyfriend, Aidan, already have their lives mapped out: attend Columbia University together, pursue banking careers, and eventually get married. Everything Kaye has accomplished in high school—student government, cheerleading, stellar grades—has been in preparation for that future.

To his entire class, Sawyer is an irreverent bad boy. His antics on the field as school mascot and his love of partying have earned him total slacker status. But while he and Kaye appear to be opposites on every level, fate—and their friends—keep conspiring to throw them together. Perhaps the seniors see the simmering attraction Kaye and Sawyer are unwilling to acknowledge to themselves…

As the year unfolds, Kaye begins to realize her ideal life is not what she thought. And Sawyer decides it’s finally time to let down the facade and show everyone who he really is. Is a relationship between them most likely to succeed—or will it be their favorite mistake?

I can't lie....I've been waiting for Sawyer and Kaye's story since Biggest Flirts. I thought the pairing of two characters who seemed to be polar opposites would be great. Also, the character of Sawyer really struck me in Biggest Flirts and I wanted to know more about it. I wasn't disappointed at all! Great!! I'm a big fan of Echols and Most Likely to Succeed is hands down my favorite book of hers so far. Ah....Sawyer! :)

Safe at Last by Maya Banks


They say young love doesn't last, but a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with unique abilities and the hometown golden boy were determined to defy the odds. For Zack Covington, Anna-Grace—his "Gracie"—was the one. But one night forever altered the course of their future; when a devastated Gracie disappeared without a trace, Zack was left to agonize over what happened to the girl he loved. As the years passed, his desperate efforts to find her uncovered nothing.

Now working for Devereaux Security, he stumbles across a painting featuring a special place only he and Gracie would know. The image is too perfectly rendered for it to be coincidence. His Gracie must be alive. When he comes face to face with her, he is shocked—and heartbroken—to discover the wounded shell of the girl he once knew and still loves. Her psychic gifts are gone, and worse, she believes he betrayed her all those years ago.

Zack has enemies, and once his weakness is discovered, Gracie becomes a target for revenge. He'll have to save her before he can earn her trust and her love. And he vows they'll never be torn apart again.

By Maya Banks

When Caleb Devereaux discovers his younger sister, Tori, is kidnapped, he quickly turns to an unlikely source for help: Ramie St. Claire, a beautiful and sensitive woman with a psychic gift for finding answers others cannot. The two quickly find out their chemistry is undeniable and an intimate relationship follows. 

While Ramie can connect to victims and alert authorities to their locations, her ability comes with a steep price. Every time she uses it, she experiences the same torture as the victim. Helping the infuriatingly attractive and impatient Caleb find his sister nearly kills her. Even though his sexual intensity draws her like a magnet, she needs to get as far away from him as she can. 

Deeply remorseful for the pain he has caused, Caleb is determined to make things right. But just when he thinks Ramie’s vanished forever, she reappears. This time she’s the one in trouble and is in desperate needs of his help. Caleb will risk everything, including his heart, to protect her from a relentless and cruel murderer, who will stop at nothing and no one until he gets to Ramie.

By Maya Banks

I swear I'm alive!

Sorry for the recent drop off in posts...yeah, the new job is keeping me busy.

If you recall, in January I announced I returned to my old branch as their new Teen Librarian. 

Since then I have been running non-stop...and my posting has dropped to about once a month. I'm hoping now that I've gotten into the swing of things I can return to reading and posting...after Summer Reading that is.

For those of you that are is an image from my 2015 Teen Summer Brochure of all my programs.

If you counted that is 25 programs. Seems I went a little overboard my first year. You should have seen the first draft before my coworker cut out some of the more demanding programs. 

Even though I am super busy, I am absolutely loving my job. I am so glad that I made the decision to return (it was pretty much a no brainer!). 

Hopefully my life will return to "normal" soon and I can get back to posting on a regular schedule. Is there anything in particular you would like to see featured? Book reviews? Programming? Patron shenanigans?

Princess Decomposia and Count Spatula by Andi Watson

In Andi Watson’s new graphic novel, Princess Decomposia and Count Spatula, readers are introduced to a young princess who has too much on her plate. Between running the Underworld and catering to her hypochondriac father, who is too weak to get out of bed, Princess Decomposia barely has time to take care of herself. Throw in warring werewolves and other demanding monsters and Princess Decomposia has complete chaos on her hands. Now she is tasked with finding a new chef to satisfy her father’s picky palette and please ornery dignitaries. When Count Spatula, a vampire who has lost his fangs due to his sweet tooth, accepts the position he dreams of creating grand meals, but he begins to realize that the one person he wants to share his creations with is too overworked and underappreciated to notice. Will Count Spatula be able to shake things up in the Underworld and show Princess Decomposia what is right in front of her?
This sweet graphic novel was refreshing and I'm glad that I added to my YA collection. I hope that Watson decides to continue with Princess Decomposia and Count Spatula's story, because it is definitely not over.
