 Macbeth #killingitA Midsummer Night #nofilter (OMG Shakespeare)

A Shakespeare play told through its characters texting with emojis, posting photos, checking in at locations, and updating their relationship statuses. The perfect gift for hip theater lovers and teens.

What an amazing arrival in my mailbox from Penguin Random House Australia’s Children’s department. I’m in complete shock – this is PERFECT for me. I’m so excited to read these.

Purchased

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)

Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.

Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend—the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.

Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters?

First of all, this book is ENORMOUS. Second of all, it was only released like two months ago and already has over 30,000 ratings on Goodreads! I am ‘behind’ in this series, but now that I have all of them I can binge read them sometime.


 

Walking Disaster (Beautiful, #2)

Finally, the highly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Beautiful Disaster.

Can you love someone too much?

Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.

In Walking Disaster; the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. But just when he thinks he is invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.

Every story has two sides. In Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it’s time to see the story through Travis’s eyes.

OK, there’s two reasons why I bought this. One is that it’s for research, because I’m interested in reading about this asshole from his own point of view. The second is because MARKETING WORKS. I found this in a bargain bin for $2 and because I recognised it, it was in my basket before I really realised what I’d done (same thing happened with a hardcover edition of Crescendo). I can only say that I’m sorry but I think I saved it from a rubbish heap and I might make book art out of it once it’s read.


Dance Until Dawn

Do you Believe in Love After Life?

At twenty-five, West-End dancer Ellie Wakefield should be having the time of her life. The only problem is, ever since waking up in a leaky cellar belonging to three-hundred-year-old vampire Will Austen, she’s been very much dead. And to make matters worse, she’s since found that an aversion to blood and a fear of the dark aren’t very helpful—especially when you’re a fledgling vamp.

William James Austen has fallen hard. He’s spent the last year loving Ellie from afar, and now he’s finally able to be truthful about who and what he is. As the most powerful and revered vampire in London, he’s used to getting what he wants.

But this time, Will might just have bitten off more than he can chew.


The Fool's Girl

Violetta and her comic companion, Feste, have come to London on a mysterious mission. Their journey has been long and their adventures many-but nothing that would surprise their new friend, Will Shakespeare. Spun from Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” this wholly original novel includes enough danger and intrigue, romance and folly to make the Bard proud.

I love Shakespeare. That’s all.


I Heart Hollywood (I Heart, #2)

Angela Clark can’t believe her luck – she’s an English girl living in New York with a dream job and a sexy boyfriend. Her latest assignment takes her to Hollywood. Will the sun-drenched glamour of Hollywood win her heart?


The Virgin's Tale

Rome, 63 BC.

Offered up by her parents at the age of six to become a Vestal Virgin, one of six hand-picked women who symbolically protected the Roman Republic, Aemilia has spent her entire adult life in the all-female Temple of Vesta, under the strictest guard.

But temptation has led her to commit a mortal sin, and she is sentenced to death as Virgins must die, buried alive in a pitch-black tomb. As the end draws near, Aemilia looks back over her claustrophobic, restricted life: the intense friendships she formed; the implacable enemies she made; and, finally, the passionate but forbidden romance which caused her downfall—and yet may be her only hope…

A tantalizing glimpse into a little-known, forbidden world, The Virgin’s Tale is the moving, erotic and highly-charged story of a woman who dared to risk everything for love.


The Divergent Companion: The Unauthorized Guide to the Series

The first companion guide to the blockbuster bestselling Divergent trilogy—soon to be a major motion picture

Written by the New York Times bestselling author of The Twilight Companion and The Hunger Games Companion, the book takes fans deeper into the post-apocalyptic world created by Veronica Roth—a dystopian Chicago in which humanity has organized itself into five factions, each with its own core value to uphold. At the age of sixteen, Beatrice Prior must choose to which one she will devote her life.

The Divergent Companion includes fascinating background facts about the action in all three books—the third book, Allegiant, publishes in October 2013—a revealing biography of the author, and amazing insights into the trilogy’s major themes and features. It’s everything fans have been hungering for since the very first book! This book is not authorized by Veronica Roth, Katherine Tegen Books, or anyone involved in the Divergent movie.

The Divergent Companion is a must-read and a terrific gift for the millions of fans both young and old—especially with the Summit Entertainment film version of Divergent, the first book in the trilogy, hitting theaters in March 2014.
