Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1) by Richelle Mead
Since the movie is coming out soon I decided to rush this up na. And it was just as entertaining as I expected it to be. Although filled with the usual high school dramas I like the kickass and badassery of Rose Hathaway the MC and her quest to be the guardian to her best friend a Moroi Princess - Vasilisa "Lissa" Dragomir. This book is essentially giving us the idea of how the vampire hierarchy works in this world of Rose. There is danger, romance and one heroine that is full of attitude but hoping that she will still continue to grow up and act more mature.

Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer
The third installment of this series which i love so much. This follows the retelling of the story of Rapunzel. I love how Meyer flawlessly intertwine the story of Cress here who like Rapunzel with her long golden hair is a Lunar programmer who was trapped in prison in a satellite under the evil Mistress Sybil. Cress' brilliant gift with space and computer technology has been taken advantage of by the Lunar Queen for years. Her path will cross with Cinder and Scarlet who are fugitives from Earth and she has been sneaky in covering their trails to help them from those who hunt them. This fantasy adventure i enjoyed so much.

A short novella about the young Cinder and how she first came to be placed with the Linh's and her struggle with her being a cyborg of her own body and the emotional toll of being different in a family who are far from being welcoming to her in the beginning.
Companion to the Cinder book one of Lunar Chronicles.

The Queen's Army (Lunar Chronicles #1.5) by Marissa Meyer
This will be a companion to book 2 of this series which is Scarlet. It is the story of Wolf's background and how he came to be a part of the elite soldiers of the Lunar Queen. You can truly feel how vicious and cunning the Lunar Queen in this short novella.

I just finished reading Marley & Me. Growing up with a dog (that I really did consider my very first best friend) I could really relate to this book. It's a light read and it's prefect for passing the time... though probably not in public if you're as sentimental about pets as I am. Lol.

same thing here arjaye..coz the movie has come out na. i have read the other spin off series first "Bloodlines" whose MC Sydney was from this series but she will not come out till very later in book 5 i think in the VA series.
Let's see if this one will get better and more complicated. Coz this one is more like an introduction and the usual high school drama.

The Little Android (A Lunar Chronicles Novella) by Marissa Meyer
This is such a gem..a retelling of The Little Mermaid set in the world of the Lunar Chronicles and I love it. This was not the disney version and was based more on the original version of Hans Christian Andersen which was actually tragic. Meyer wrote this character who is an android programmed to be devoid of human feelings yet filled her with tender emotions and you can't help but get teary eyed in the end.

Consumed Me (Devoured #2) by Emily Snow...adult contemporary romance. Rock star Lucas Wolfe is back and is setting out to win back the love of his life Sienna. He was being total DB in the previous book. I was expecting more from this sequel but what i got was not quite enough but i was surprise of the secret Lucas was hiding that was bugging me since book 1. He finally laid it all here. Steamy reunion but not that graphic and the usual evil b*tches are in the background and I am disappointed that some issues where not resolved in a way that I want them to be resolved.
Next i want a Sinjin and Chloe story...theirs sounds more complicated and prob more drama. There is a ten years age gap and their Rock star lifestyle is not for the faint of heart.
