Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper’s destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.

Just when life can’t get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she’s charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper’s least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him—and discovers that David’s own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.

With snappy banter, cotillion dresses, non-stop action and a touch of magic, this new young adult series from bestseller Rachel Hawkins is going to make y’all beg for more.

Say Buh-Bye to my negative reviews!

my

 

My weekend is booked up because I have to think of other ways to fill up my blog, I estimated my reviews that almost or most of my reviews are negative, I think this is why some people prefer other blogs so I have made a decision that Lite-rate-ture will no longer be posting negative reviews. Stop the gasps, I’ll be discussing with you the pros and cons for a kind of blog that only welcomes positive reviews.

The positives

Book blogging is suppose to be about sharing the books you love and what you want to recommend to your followers and readers and to new audiences. Your blog will look more fun and safer to read for authors who stop by your blog and also if an author wouldn’t have to be bothered whether you’ll love her book or not because if you end up hating the book, that’s all the publicity the book gets. No promotion, no harm.

The negatives

I’m a hard reader to please most of the books I’ve read are rated 3.5, 3, 2.5 and 2 quoted from my friends who follow me on twitter. It bothers me quite a lot because knowing that only a few books make me fall in love makes me want to quit blogging. Isn’t that scary? I have to admit I’m very miserly when it comes to giving 5 stars let alone 6 stars. I’ve never given 6 stars ever in my life, but I do have a few 5 stars but too few that I can mention all of them here.

It’s going to be difficult saying goodbye to all my negative reviews because I really have the most fun when I’m ranting about a book, I can really explain how I feel towards I book I strongly disliked. Do you get me? And you can’t deny that it’s really funny when you read a negative review, but it kinda hurts to read when the author sees it. I don’t want that happening and also I don’t want to discourage you from reading the book because I hated it. Nononononono, it’s just wrong.

I only love a few books which means I’ll be posting a little less from the usual. Is that bad? I need your opinion on this.

Sam McKenna’s never turned down a dare. And she’s not going to start with the last one her brother gave her before he died.

So Sam joins the first-ever class of girls at the prestigious Denmark Military Academy. She’s expecting push-ups and long runs, rope climbing and mud-crawling. As a military brat, she can handle an obstacle course just as well as the boys. She’s even expecting the hostility she gets from some of the cadets who don’t think girls belong there. What she’s not expecting is her fiery attraction to her drill sergeant. But dating is strictly forbidden and Sam won’t risk her future, or the dare, on something so petty…no matter how much she wants him.

As Sam struggles to prove herself, she discovers that some of the boys don’t just want her gone—they will stop at nothing to drive her out. When their petty threats turn to brutal hazing, bleeding into every corner of her life, she realizes they are not acting alone. A decades-old secret society is alive and active… and determined to force her out.
At any cost.

Now time’s running short. Sam must decide who she can trust…and choosing the wrong person could have deadly consequences.
