Book Review: The Fledgling Handbook by PC Cast

Title: The Fledgling Handbook
Author: PC Cast
Series: House of Night Companion Novel
Pages: 157
Date of UK Publication: 26th October 2010
Source: Library
Synopsis from Goodreads:Merry meet, fledgling. I trust this guide will serve you well…. Every vampyre fledgling who arrives at the House of Night receives a copy of "The Fledgling Handbook 101", and now, fans can have one, too, with this gorgeous must-have edition. Inside you’ll find original stories, the complete vampyre history, inside info into rituals, vamp biology, and the Change, and much more.


My Thoughts:
I love the House of Night series. I love the story, the characters, the world that the Casts have created. I really wanted to love this. But unfortunately, I didn't.

It started off okay, with an introduction into the House of Night world and with the biology of vampyres and how your body changes, I thought that was pretty interesting, because it was so well thought out and it really shows that the author had really…

FOR REVIEW




Die For Me by Amy Plum
(Thanks to NetGalley and HarperCollins!)

DIE FOR ME is the first of three books about Kate, a sixteen-year-old American who moves to Paris after the death of her parents. It introduces a new version of the undead with revenants, beings who are fated to sacrifice themselves over and over again to save others’ lives. Kate finds herself falling for Vincent, who she discovers is not the typical French teenager he appears: he is something else entirely.


This one sounds incredible. Sounds like a very promising start to a new series :D

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
(Thanks to NetGalley and HarperCollins!)

How do you defy destiny?

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched,…

Book Blogger Hop #21 and Follow Friday #16

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee at Parajunkee's View. :D


If you could physically put yourself into a book or series... which one would it be and why? 
My answer: I would love to be in Paranormalcy by Kiersten White. I'd love to meet Evie, I think she'd be awesome, and I would also love to meet Lend and see how he looks in the flesh. I think that the Paranormalcy world was awesomely written, and I loved reading about it, so to visit it would be even better! 

Inspired by the inane Twitter trend of #100randomfactsaboutme, give us five book related silly facts about you.
My answer: 1. I try to keep my books in pristine condition. Yes, I'm one of those weirdos who refuse to crease the spine on my books. 2. All my books are in correct alphabetical order on my bookshelves.  3. I have a bright pink Kindle case.  4. I love my 'Mighty Bright Book Light' which was one of the most useful Christmas presents I h…

Waiting on Wednesday #4: Divergent by Veronica Roth

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



This week, I'm waiting on: 


Divergent by Veronica Roth
Synopsis from Goodreads:In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself. 
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fasci…

Book Review: Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Title: Nightshade
Author: Andrea Cremer
Series: Nightshade #1
Pages: 452
Date of UK Publications: 28th December 2010
Source: Bought
Synopsis from Goodreads:Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything--including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?


My Thoughts:
I've had Nightshade for a long time. Well, a few months, but still, it's been sitting on my shelf for a while. I was so excited to read it, but I hadn't got around to it, and I kept putting it off. Probably because of all the hype that was surrounding it a couple of months ago, …

Book Blogger Hop #20 and Follow Friday #15

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For Books and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee from Parajunkee's View. =]


Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once? 
My answer: I usually only have one book going at a time, but sometimes if I have a book that I have to read as a PDF on my laptop I'll read something else at the same time, so I can take it with me when I go out. But, if I have two books going at once, I get confused, and mix up characters and plot points, or read one a lot more than the other... It's much easier for me just to read one :L 


How did you come up with your blog name?
My answer: Ever since I was little, my internet nickname has always been Cheezyfeet. So, it only seemed right that my blog would be called Cheezyfeet Books, because I'm Cheezyfeet and my blog is a book blog. =] EDIT* It's not called Cheezyfeet because I have cheesy feet... I don't. Usually :L  
What's happened this week at Cheezyfeet Boo…

Book Review: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

Title: Wither
Author: Lauren DeStefano
Series: Chemical Garden #1
Pages: 356
Date of Publications: 22nd March 2011
Source: Simon & Schuster Galley Grab
Synopsis from Goodreads: What if you knew exactly when you would die?

Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it mean…

Book Review: Outside In by Maria V. Snyder

Title: Outside In
Author: Maria V. Snyder
Series: Inside Out #2
Pages: 328
Date of UK Publications: 18th March 2011
Source: NetGalley
Synopsis from Goodreads:Me? A Leader? Okay, I did prove that there's more to Inside than we knew. That a whole world exists beyond this cube we live in. And finding that led to a major rebellion - between worker scrubs like me and the snobby uppers who rule our world. Make that ruled. Because of me, we're free. I thought that meant I was off the hook, and could go off on my own again - while still touching base with Riley, of course. He's the one upper I think I can trust. But then we learned that there's outside and then there is Outside. And something from Outside wants In.


My Thoughts:
Outside In is the second book in the Inside Out series by Maria V. Snyder. I absolutely loved Inside Out, it was awesome. And, I didn't think it was possible, but Outside In was even better.

Outside In begins with a recap of everything that happened in t…

Now if she doesn't reverse it in time, Magnus will be her blood mate forever and she's doomed to be a blood-gulping, pasty, daylight-hating vampire. That would seriously bite.

And now, after the unfortunate slaying of the vampire leader, Sunshine, her sister Rayne, and Magnus must find the one thing that can solve her problem: the Holy Grail. They wish it were a joke but it's not. It's absolutely necessary that Sunshine gets out of this in time, be…

Source: Recieved for free from publisher in exchange for an honest review
Synopsis from Goodreads:No sickness, No injuries, No pain, No limits.

If you had the power to heal, what would you do?

For fifteen-year-old Ada discovering that she can heal feels more like a curse than a gift. When she learns of the mystery surrounding her mother's disappearance, and sees the indifference of so-called friends, she sets out for Paris to find her.

The power to heal protects her, but also has her hunted by a man who sees her as nothing more than his fountain of youth. Ada realizes her true power is her will to survive, and that her only chance at freedom is to become the best at escaping.

Ada hasn't grown up in a house with a white picket fence. Instead she was cast off and absorbed into the foster care system, quickly putting up a shield of hostility. Always know…
