Author: Katie Alender
Publisher: Point
Release: August 25, 2015
Asylum meets Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, in this riveting tale of ghosts, secrets, and family, from master of suspense Katie Alender. Delia's new house isn't just a house. It used to be an insane asylum, a place to lock up "troubled" young women long ago. And a restless, wicked spirit is still at play--and it doesn't want defiant girls like Delia to go anywhere. So the house kills her. Now Delia is a ghost, trapped in her creepy home forever. As she meets the other ghost girls who haunt the narrow hallways, as well as the handsome ghost boy on the grounds, she learns shocking truths about the house's history. Delia also realizes that her alive and grieving sister might be the house's next target. Can Delia unlock the mystery of the old asylum, save her sister, and free herself?
Why? I love the synopsis :) insane asylum, ghosts,  dead main character, handsome ghost boy and a house with secrets :D This book sounds amazing. I also love how creepy the cover looks.

The Elite by Kiera Cass (Selection #2) Review #87

Author: Kiera Cass
Publisher: Harper Teen
Pages: 323 (paperback)
Source: Chapters :D
Links: Amazon / Barnes and Noble/ Book Depository / Chapters 
Rating: 4/5 
The Selection began with thirty-five girls. Now with the group narrowed down to the six Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's heart is fiercer than ever—and America is still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen? America is desperate for more time. But the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want—and America's chance to choose is about to slip away.
I definitely enjoyed The Elite a lot more then I did The Selection. Out of all three books, this one was by far my favourite. The cover is absolute breath-taking and I felt a lot more action happened in this novel then in it's predecessor.
I surprisingly found myself falling in love with Aspen in The Elite. In my review of The Selection (click here) I talked about how Aspen was annoying and dragged the book. However, I found myself more drawn to him in this book and wished there was more scenes of him.

#3 FF: Feature and Follow

How do you organize your books? Either at home on your bookshelves or on your reading-device, or on your bookish platform like Goodreads,Leafmarks or Booklikes.-Unconventional Book Views

I use to organize my bookshelf by authour name and series. However, as of lately my bookshelf is very disorganized and nothing is alphabetically correct haha. Thus, I rely on memory of cover art to find certain series or books when I am searching for them once more. 

I don't really use electronic devices (I love physical books) so my kobo is disorganized as well. 

I LOVE GOODREADS. On Goodreads I sort books by read and currently reading. I also mark books in my wish list. I also have in previous years marked books by the year I read them (ex; read-2014, read-2013, read-2012). This is a good track record of what books I have read and in what year I read them. I also really love the progress option on goodreads.

I  don't really use Booklikes and I did not know what Leafmarks was until today haha!!

Musing Mondays- May 11, 2015

(Image from A Daily Rhythm)

Musing Mondays is a meme created by A Daily Rhythm in which we chose and answer a prompt and then answer a random question of the week. 
Up Next I Think I will read...

I already bought a copy of The Heir (Selection #4) by Kiera Cass and Velvet by Temple West comes out this week :D Images come from Goodreads. 
This Week's Random Question
Do you have a “kindred” reading buddy — someone who very closely shares your taste in books? If not, do you wish you did?
Not really. Most of my friends do not read :( and the ones that do have different taste in books. I have one friend who loves Cassandra Clare's books as much as I do though. Both of us are excited for the upcoming Shadowhunter T.V series and have been talking a lot about that lately.

I wish I could have a "kindred" reading buddy (or will find one soon) because then I could actually express my excitement for fictional characters and have them understand what in the world I am talking about.

What is your answer to this question?
