The Hunger Games Trailer is released. I am so excited! The Hunger Games Trilogy has to be my favorite series of the year 2011. Its more than just a game. As I was watching this I had chills run down my spine. The trailer alone is epic and I can't wait till I see the movie!
Look for my reaction video on Saturday. Where I discuss The Hunger Games and what I really think about the trailer .

|Amazon | Goodreads| Barnes&Noble| Review|
If you like the Twilight or the Pretty Little Liars series then I defintely recommend this book.
Let me just say here that I am not really a fan of mystery books but Deadly Little Secrets might have just changed my mind.
The book starts off with a almost deadly encounter. Camelia is saved by the weirdo emo looking guy. Who she claims touches her stomach tenderly. It reminds me of a scene thats in Twilight. Sometimes I really wonder what is up with the trends of our heroine these days....always choosing the bad boy that is misunderstood. As you all may very well know she falls heads over heels for Ben. Ben has killer looks and as the town knows it has killer instincts.
As I was reading. It seemed to emit the usual mystery/suspense criteria. Scary coincidences happening. murder, secret crushes and the like. There are some hilarious conversations that had me chuckling to myself and there was some parts that had me flipping the pages and my heart beating.
The thing is I could never imagine how it would possibly end. Expect the Unexpected I always say.
The Deadly Little Secrets truly surprised me. Its a good book with a hint of something more. I rate this book 3 and half stars.
If you want to read a little teaser of the book you can check it out here

And it didn't stop there. The car continued toward me without missing a beat.
"I blinked once, but I honestly didn't want to. I didn't want to stop looking at him for even one solitary moment-the sharp angles of his face; his dark grey eyes, flecked with gold; and those pale pink lips pressed together with concern-despite.........

Title: Addison Blakely: Confessions of A PK
Author: Bestsy St.Amant
Publisher: Cedar Fort
Release Date: 1/1/2012
I seriously liked this book. Addison is the daughter of a pastor( also known as a PK aka Pastor Kid) . She has set rules and is an example of Christan faith. She is a top A student with stellar academics and right minded attitude to prove it. She is the “perfect” Christan girl.
At the age of 16 she has no boyfriend, constantly reads books, and is only allowed to have one “pop” a day. She also is addicted to mocha and sprinkles, lots of sprinkles. She has been under the thump of expectations from her father and the church she literally does not what to think. All her ideas and thoughts are something that Addi should say rather than what she thinks. At the age of sweet 16 you start to learn of something, something called “thinking for yourself”.
Her life seems to start to shatter as she goes through the year. She is dating the town’s bad boy Wes, leather wearing, motorcycling, best person to make out with who also has awesome tattoos and does not go to church guy. The exact opposite guy she should be dating especially her love stuck friend Luke ( who is a total romantic). She loses her best friend Claire because she told when she bailed out on a science project, somehow got volunteered for fundraiser and not to mention her dad the PASTOR is dating her new and yet fashionable English teacher!
What is a girl going to do? Especially when she feels as if her prayers to God are not getting past her bedrooms Walls?
I loved this book and I loved how the author describes her characters. I just wanted to add it may not be everyone's cup of tea , but I think everyone should try this book at least once!
