Airhead by Meg Cabot Review 4 out of 5 stars

My Thoughts:
This book was recommended to me by my sister and we usually enjoy different kinds of books, but this one was fantastic! Its been a while since I've found myself captivated by a book, so imagine my joy when I finished this one. I love the plot and storyline of this series; so original! The story starts off while the protagonist, Em Watts, is in class. Em is an outcast that doesn't have any tolerance for the popular kids. Though I love the idea that Em doesn't conform to the pressures of society, her attitude leaves little to be desired. I personally didn't like her very much at all.
After her accident when she wakes up in the body of "it" girl, Nikki Howard, her world turns upside down. Suddenly she is thrust into a world of fame and boys, two topics that seem harder then all her AP classes.
This book was amazing, I loved it!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

Synopsis by Goodreads

Emerson Watts didn't even want to go to the new SoHo Stark Megastore grand opening. But someone needed to look out for her sister, Frida, whose crush, British heartthrob Gabriel Luna, would be singing and signing autographs there-along with the newly appointed Face of Stark, teen supermodel sensation Nikki Howard.

How was Em to know that disaster would strike, changing her-and life as she'd known it-forever? One bizarre accident later, and Em Watts, always the tomboy, never the party princess, is no longer herself. Literally.

Now getting her best friend, Christopher, to notice that she's actually a girl is the least of Em's problems.

But what Em's pretty sure she'll never be able to accept might just turn out to be the one thing that's going to make her dream come true . . . .

Book: Demon Kisses
Author: H.M. Ward

Teaser: "Ivy, the past is the past. What's been done can't be changed. We should just leave it." (ch.23)

The Valefar boy tricked Ivy Taylor into kissing him, but he took much more than a kiss - he stole her soul and left her within inches of death. By surviving, Ivy is drawn into the conflict between the Martis and the Valefar. The war between these two immortal forces has raged for millennia without distraction. Until now.

Ivy is an anomaly-she is the only person who has ever walked away from a demon kiss alive. Her survival gives her unique and deadly abilities. Too powerful to ignore, Ivy is a threat to both armies. These two ancient enemies will stop at nothing to kill the seventeen-year-old.

Surviving is nothing new for headstrong Ivy, but her survival has never depended on another person before. This time it does. And if she misplaces her trust, she's dead. To her horror, she starts falling in love at the worst possible time-with the enemy. He appears to be protecting her. But she can't be certain if he is trying to help her, or help himself to her power. For Ivy, trusting the right person is the difference between love and survival, or a deadly demon kiss.

 That's all for today guys. I hope you have a lovely day today. A special shout out to all the 2011 graduates; we made it! :)
