I'm not yet sure how I feel about this one. It's kind of slow.
Lexi Blane has it all. Other than the unexplained fainting spells and a lot of creepy nightmares, her destiny is exactly as she planned - damned near perfect. But an unexpected twist of fate sends William Bradford, the richest, hottest, most popular guy on campus, to fall in love with her to the point of infatuation. Now, it's perfect. Life is good.

And just like that - her world crumbles to pieces.

She doesn't remember the horrible accident and no one alive remembers William. As she tries to decipher what is real and what her genius mind created, she learns that nothing is ever what it seems and her friends know a lot more than they say.

Also reading this week: 
Started this, and so far it's great!   I'm anxious to see where  it goes.
For the past five months Essallie Hanley has been trying to forget about the frightening murder of her boyfriend. Haunted by vivid nightmares and hallucinations of the event she does anything she can to pretend she's like every other normal girl in High School.

Only Essallie is far from normal. Able to conjure blue fire and a shimmering silhouette of wings from her body, she seeks the only known solace left to her name; her first home in Belfast, Maine.

But she soon realizes that her return home is only the beginning of a long and twisted road taking her as far from her humanity as possible, with Kayden, the demon originally summoned to slaughter her, leading the way. Unable to touch her but oddly curious, he joins Essallie in her search to find out just what she is. But neither of them were prepared for the secrets they've begun to unravel, secrets that will change Essallie and everyone around her forever.

I am in LOVE with this cover. So excited to read this!
Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's...

So that's it for me this week! Lots of reading goodness :).
