HELLO EVERYONE! First off, I'd like to apologize for not posting for over *gasp* a month. (!!!) If you want to keep updated with me my instagram and twitter are both @haileysbooks . I update every day on there!

Secondly, if you live in the northern hemisphere, FALL IS UPON US! Which means chunky sweaters, hot tea, curling up with a great book, and of course, HALLOWEEN!
Now if you are like me and don't go trick-or-treating (too old) or go to any Halloween parities, (I'm sure my invites get lost in the mail...) Halloween can be an uneventful night consisting of handing out treats to kids and stuffing your face with candy.(I'm not the only one...right?)

So instead of just handing out treats to little kids and wondering how invites get lost in the mail, dive into a creepy book, it'll keep you biting your nails the whole night! (And reading is so much more fun then going to some crazy party, amIright?)

So what are you waiting for? Grab some candy corn and check out these creepy books!
(PS All the titles are linked to a direct buying link to Amazon!)

Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick (Currently reading this right now!)

Danger is hard to resist in this sexy thriller from Becca Fitzpatrick, the New York Times bestselling author of the Hush, Hush saga.
Britt Pheiffer has trained to backpack the Teton Range, but she isn’t prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two very handsome occupants—but these men are fugitives, and they take her hostage.
Britt is forced to guide the men off the mountain, and knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. The task is made even more complicated when Britt finds chilling evidence of a series of murders that have taken place there…and in uncovering this, she may become the killer’s next target.
But nothing is as it seems, and everyone is keeping secrets, including Mason, one of her kidnappers. His kindness is confusing Britt. Is he an enemy? Or an ally?
Black Ice is New York Times bestselling author Becca Fitzpatrick’s riveting romantic thriller set against the treacherous backdrop of the mountains of Wyoming. Falling in love should never be this dangerous…

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
     It can.
     She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.
     There is.
     She doesn't believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.
     She’s wrong.
     After Mara survives the traumatizing accident at the old asylum, it makes sense that she has issues. She lost her best friend, her boyfriend, and her boyfriend’s sister, and as if that weren’t enough to cope with, her family moves to a new state in order to give her a fresh start. But that fresh start is quickly filled with hallucinations—or are they premonitions?—and then corpses, and the boundary between reality and nightmare is wavering. At school, there’s Noah, a devastatingly handsome charmer who seems determined to help Mara piece together what’s real, what’s imagined—and what’s very, very dangerous.
     This fast-paced psychological—or is it paranormal?—thriller will leave you breathless for its sequel,The Evolution of Mara Dyer.
(Speaking of which....)

The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
(You can marathon these books, guys, THEY ARE AMAZING)

Mara Dyer once believed she could run from her past.
She can’t.
She used to think her problems were all in her head.
They aren't.
She couldn't imagine that after everything she’s been through, the boy she loves would still be keeping secrets.
She’s wrong.
In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next?

The Lying Game by Sara Shepard

I had a life anyone would kill for. Then someone did.
I may not remember much, but I know I led a charmed life. Even in death I’m getting something no one else does: an encore performance, thanks to Emma, the long-lost twin sister I never got to meet. Now, in order to figure out what happened to me, Emma needs to become me. But can she laugh at inside jokes with my best friends? Convince my boyfriend she’s the girl he fell in love with? Hug my parents good night like she’s their daughter? And can she keep up the charade even after she realizes my murderer is watching her every move?
Let the lying game begin.

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard
Everyone has something to hide—especially high school juniors Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna.
Spencer covets her sister's boyfriend. Aria's fantasizing about her English teacher. Emily's crushing on the new girl at school. And Hanna uses some ugly tricks to stay beautiful.
But they've all kept an even bigger secret since their friend Alison vanished.
How do I know? Because I know everything about the bad girls they were and the naughty girls they are now. And guess what? I'm telling.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

A mysterious island.

An abandoned orphanage.

A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive. 

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

7728889The Diviners by Libba Bray

 Do you believe there are ghosts and demons and Diviners among us?
Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City--and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It's 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.
Evie worries he'll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.
As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfurl in the city that never sleeps. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened....

9378297Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. They follow legends and local lore, destroy the murderous dead, and keep pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
Searching for a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas expects the usual: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
Yet she spares Cas's life.

That's all I have for you today! Have a safe and fun Halloween!

Afterworlds (ARC... Stay tuned for a review!) by Scott Westerfeld


Darcy Patel has put college on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. With a contract in hand, she arrives in New York City with no apartment, no friends, and all the wrong clothes. But lucky for Darcy, she's taken under the wings of other seasoned and fledgling writers who help her navigate the city and the world of writing and publishing. Over the course of a year, Darcy finishes her book, faces critique, and falls in love.

Woven into Darcy's personal story is her novel, Afterworlds, a suspenseful thriller about a teen who slips into the "Afterworld" to survive a terrorist attack. The Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead, and where many unsolved-and terrifying-stories need to be reconciled. Like Darcy, Lizzie too falls in love…until a new threat resurfaces, and her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she cares about most.

You can PRE-ORDER a copy of Afterworlds ( It is available September 23, 2014) linked below:

With the help of the handsome, tortured Will and the devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister's war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal and fueled by revenge. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister knows their every move-and that one of their own has betrayed them.
Tessa is drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa answers about who she really is? As their search leads to deadly peril, Tessa learns that secrets and lies can corrupt even the purest heart.

Anna and the French Kiss Review!

Stephanie Perkins
Anna and the French Kiss
Speak Publishing August 9, 2011

5/5 stars, recommend to everyone (yes, it is that great)

If you are looking for an "aw" worthy, I-can't-take-my-eyes-off-the-page chick-lit, Anna and the French Kiss is the book for you. 

Set during a full school year, Anna, a funny, quirky girl with a passion for reviewing movies, is sent to The School of America in France for her senior year. Upset from leaving her friends and a possible boyfriend at home, she arrives in France alone and worried. (and lost). Thankfully, Anna is soon taken under the wing of her new friends, including Etienne St. Clair. (Que a hundred teenage girls screaming).

Etienne, or St. Clair as called by his friends, is every teenage girls dream boyfriend. With amazing hair, gorgeous eyes, and *gasps* a British accent, Anna is attracted to him at first sight. The only thing unattractive about him, though, is that he has a girlfriend. 

As the school year unfolds, so do the characters, which are more complex and layered near the end. Especially Etienne, who we get to see every side of, and we, and Etienne, experience great character development with him. 

Throughout the year, Anna and her charming friends go on nights in town, watch movies, drink hot chocolate, and get in a lot of drama, such as: drama between Anna and the "mean girl" at school, Anna and her friends, and Anna and Etienne, which is by far the worst (or the best) and most frustrating. (Think yell-at-your-book and rip-out-your-hair frustrating).
But the drama, although frustrating, keeps you addicted to the story, and will keep you wondering how it will end.

Not all the story is drama, don't worry! Although I like myself some great drama, I do like cute and realistic romance more, which Anna and the French Kiss delivers, in abundance. (YES!) The Anna and Etienne chemistry will leave you smiling uncontrollably, sighing happily, and wondering, "JUST GET TOGETHER ALREADY" as you read on. 

Anna and the French Kiss is one of those feel-good chick-lits that will keep you entertained and attached while you read, and leave you feeling satisfied after the ending. If you're looking for a *quick, great, book with lots of feels and a VERY ATTRACTIVE American-French guy with a British accent (what's not to love?) do yourself a favor and pick this book up. You won't be let down.

*as in, finish-it-in-one-day quick

NOTE: This is my first review, so I am sorry if there are mistakes or is not professional

What I'm Reading... (among other things)

Hello everyone! Or should I say, bonjourno, in Italian! If you have been wondering why I have not been on since the 17th of July, (!!!) it is because I have been on vacation in Italy, which has been amazing! (besides the fact that I have had about little to no time to read! Noooo)
Since the last time I have been on, I have read Cinder, My Life Next Door, finished These Broken Stars, and Anna and the French Kiss! (Check out my review on Goodreads-link in About Me-and on this blog!)
I will be in Croatia with no WIFI *gasps* for 9 days, but don't think I have have forgotten all about you lovely readers!
I promise after all this craziness ends, I will be very active and post good quality posts and more review for the books you love. (not just these "What I'm Reading" posts). If you want more current updates, follow my Instagram and twitter! (link in About Me) Again, I am so very sorry, but I will make it up to you, readers!
Now that we are all caught up, time for my current read!

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi (#2 in the Shatter Me series)

Our lips touch and I know I'm going to split at the seams. He kisses me softly then strongly like he's lost me and he's found me and I'm slipping away and he's never going to let me go.
Juliette has escaped from The Reestablishment. Now she's free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch. Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible. Haunted by her past and terrified of her future, Juliette knows that she will have to make some life-changing choices. Choices that may involve choosing between her heart-and Adam's life.


As always,
Happy Reading!

But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.
Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other's arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder-would they be better off staying here forever? Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won't be the same people who landed on it.

Every Day by David Levithan

There's never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.
It's all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin's girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with-day in, day out, day after day.
