BOOK HAUL: February 8, 2013 + Winner!

Another great book from Book Sale!
WILDEFIRE by KARSTEN KNIGHT
Cheap, looks brand new and the blurb at the back of the book sounds interesting.
Can't wait for shool to be over and start storming through my TBR pile :)



Every flame begins with a spark.

Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her.

But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own.

With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time…

And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.

I just want to extend my warmest gratitude to Alishia from Treasured Tales for Young Adults for remembering the bookmark I have won from her blog. It has been more than a year since her contest and I really wasn't expecting to receive it at this point since months already passed. I figured maybe it got lost in the mail or she forgot that I won or something. But she messaged me and she still remembered. So yay! for Alishia.

It may not be a big deal for some but I really appreciated what she did. :) Thank you!!!

She even included a short message! (Sorry if the image quality is poor.)
THANK YOU!


Ever since her sixteenth birthday, strange things keep happening to Seraphina Parrish.

The Lady in Black… burns Sera’s memories.

Unexplainable Premonitions… catapult her to other cities.

The Grungy Gang… wants to kill her.

And a beautiful, mysterious boy… stalks her.

But when Sera moves to Chicago, and her aunt reveals their family connection to a centuries old, secret society, she is immediately thrust into an unbelievable fantasy world, leading her on a quest to unravel the mysteries that plague her. In the end, their meanings crash into an epic struggle of loyalty and betrayal, and she’ll be forced to choose between the boy who has stolen her heart and the thing she desires most.

Wander Dust is the breathtaking fantasy that will catapult you through a story of time, adventure, and love.
