It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are you Reading is a meme hosted by Book Journey. It is where we can share which books we are reading for the week! I am a planner so I do this already but, this is a fun way to share it with you guys!

This book is kind of a special interest of mine. Why you ask? Well one of my high school friends wrote it!! I know right! So I am excited to read something written by someone I know personally. It is the first one she has had published so if the summary interests you feel free to show her some love! 

Amazon Summary: 

Kylah was born and raised in a small northern town. She lived an ordinary life in the mortal world. Until the day she’s turned into a Vampire.

 Her eyes are suddenly opened to a world she never knew existed, and she finds herself incredibly alone in a Supernatural existence. She is the first Vampire since the dawn of Creation to hold the powers given to the Originals, and every spiritual entity has taken notice.

 Demons have been summoned from the Pits of Hell to hunt her down, convert her to their side, or snuff her out like a candle. Darkness appeals to her need for revenge on those who have wronged her, and those she loves. It entices her with promises of power and respect.

 But beings of the Light have also come for her. Guardians of the Dead, servants of the Creator, rush to her aid to appeal to her humanity and save her soul from damnation, and rescue the world from a dark, avenging angel.

 When the Demonic attacks become life threatening, the Guardians move her across the country to New Orleans to give her a chance to connect with Vampires that will be able to help her grow and harness her powers, but things quickly spiral out of control when she is introduced to an Original Vampire that is power-hungry and blood-thirsty.

 The fight for her soul explodes into a war of epic proportions, and the lives of everyone she ever cared about are now at stake.

Ok, this book is going to be a movie and therefore I must read the book before I see the movie. I try to always do this when books become movies. 

 Goodreads Summary:
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker.

Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

  1. I'm the same way with books and movies! Though I did read this last year I believe. I really liked it! The Infinite Sea was pretty good too. Struggle to remember what I thought about that because there have been so many reads since. But it was good! Dying for the last one!, which has been pushed back twice now I believe. Hopefully the May 2016 date sticks!

    Happy Reading!
