Summer is coming quickly - what 2011 summer release are most looking forward to? 

My answer: Oh, I have no idea, there are a few... I'm really looking forward to Bloodlines by Richelle Mead, that looks awesome, and I can't wait to return to the world of Rose and Dimitri, even though they probably won't be in it much, if at all :( 

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee from Parajunkee's View. 

Keeping with the dystopian and apocalypse theme that seems to be running rampant on, I have one very hard question for you: If you were stocking your bomb shelter, what books would you HAVE to include if you only had space for ten?

My answer: Oh my word, this question is HARD! I would take:

Divergent by Veronica Roth
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (all three books)
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (all three books)
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

I think maybe that is what I would take. I have no idea though, I hope never to be in that situation! :L 

TGIF is hosted by Ginger from GReads!

Stand Alone vs. Series: What's your stance? 

My answer: I love series. I love how when I finish one book in a series, I know that the story will be continued in another book, and that I will get to return to the world and the characters that the author has written. Although, sometimes with series, such as the House of Night series by PC and Kristin Cast, if they are long they can drag on a bit, and sometimes when reading you get the feeling that they are not written for the readers anymore, they are written for the money. They are still good, but not as good as they once were. I do enjoy standalones though, I like that once I've read one, I don't have to wait at a cliffhanger, or wait for another book, I can just finish it, and be happy with it :)

What's happened this week at Cheezyfeet Books?


  1. It would be a horrible situation! Not only with the dystopian theme, but really 10 books?! Doesn't anyone understand us bibliophiles?

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Jessica@a GREAT read

  2. Hi Bella! Old follower here. Yay for the blog hops and follow fridays! Blackberry Summer is my upcoming release I want to read and I listed my shelter books on my blog.

    Judith Leger - Paran/Fantasy Romance
    w/a L.J. Leger - YA Fantasy
    w/a Jadette Paige - Erotic

  3. I've just started the Iron Fey series, so far I am loving it. Great list!

  4. Good job on narrowing your list down to ten. I couldn't. I threw a fit on my blog, lol.

  5. Hi Bella! I'm an old follower.

    I'm inviting you over at my blog for a chance to win Forgotten & Playing Hurt. I love both books and I'm sharing the book love through these contests!

    Here's my post.

  6. I like these 2 questions together... I haven't heard of Bloodlines, but based on the books you would take into the shelter (and the fact I love them) I may have to look into it!

    If you get a chance, hop by my blog- maybe even enter the giveaway! Hunger Games, Matched, City of Ember, and Saving Rachel are up for grabs!


  7. I cheated. I didn't count series as separate books so I'm sure I actually had over 20 books.

Book Review: Insight by Jamie Magee

Title: Insight Author: Jamie Magee Series: Insight #1 Pages: 314 Date of UK Publications: July 20th 2010 Source: Received free for a blog tour/event Synopsis from Goodreads: Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift. My Thoughts: Insight was a good book. The plot was well thought out, and the characters were complex and real. It was a strong debut novel,
