Idolizing In: Raised by Wolves Series, Book 1

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 418 | Release Date: June 2010 | Publisher: Egmont USA | Obtained: Pasquotank-Camden Library

"Raised By Wolves" [Raised by Wolves Series, Book 1] by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

My Book Summary : Bronwyn's (Bryn) life changed when she was 4-years-old and a Rabid werewolf slaughtered her family. Thankfully a local pack alpha, Callum, step in during the slaughter and stopped the Rabid from attacking Bryn at that time, and brought her into his clan to live (keeping her human).

Now she's 15-years-old, a part of Callum's pack --- but not, since not everyone accepts having a human living among them after all this time. Recently Bryn finds out that there is a threat in Callum's territory but no one is willing to inform her of what the threat is, yet they are more protective of her then ever.

After a while of being left in the dark Bryn decides to take matters into her own hands so, she can find out what's going on. However, what she ends up finding will change her world forever ....

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! I have to agree, completely, with Melissa Marr when she said, "Quite simply, the most compelling YA werewolf book out there." And Ms. Marr is soo right! This novel/series takes on a new meaning in and of itself. Even though I've only read the first novel, thus far, but it was so heart-warming, intriguing, and mysterious that I didn't want to put it down even when I had too!

• Bryn is mysterious from what happened to her in her past to who she is to who she becomes ... you really can never be sure what she'll do next, other then knowing she will do whatever she can to make things right.

• Her relationship with her friends, Devon & Lake, had moments of hilarity to a seriousness that comes from years of friendship, and makes you wish you could join in the fun.

• Chase! What can I say .... I loved him!! I hope they are okay and still together in the next book since I really really liked their relationship together!!

• And okay I know that she had a VERY small role in this book but I could not get enough of Lily!! She sounded soooo cute! =0)

I can't wait to read the next novel, "Trial by Fire," and I'm so excited to hear (off of Ms. Barnes website) that there will be a third book in the series that'll be released in June 2012!!

I recommend this to everyone who loves paranormal YA stories!! Those who are fans of Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Gena Showalter, Stephenie Meyer, and who likes werewolf novels should enjoy this novel as much as I did!

Author Book Trailer :

Author Book Interview :

Book Teaser(s) :
Well, at least I wasn't completely on my own. Though after a moment's reflection, I wasn't sure if that was a comfort or not. My allies in this circle consisted of a fashion-conscious teenage boy who believed in the holy power of the movie musical and two infants wearing shirts with little yellow and blue duckies on them.
An army, we were not. ~ within Chapter 8
"This doesn't mean we're mates," I told him.
He opened his mouth very wide in a mischievous, wolfy yawn.
"Women's liberation and all that," I continued, catching his yawn and trying to push it down. "No Mark. No lifetime commitment. No 'property of' signs. We just have a bond, that's all."
His tail beat quietly against the dirt beneath us, and a smile worked its way onto my lips. ~ within Chapter 16

Feasted On: Raised by Wolves Series, Book 2

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 357 | Release Date: June 2011 | Publisher: Egmont USA | Obtained: Pasquotank-Camden Library

"Trail By Fire" [Raised by Wolves Series, Book 2] by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

My Book Summary : Bryn has been the Alpha of her Cedar Ridge Pack for a while now. Things are going great in day-to-day life, even with still having to go to school. That is until Thanksgiving Day (and during their school break) a weak and broken teenage werewolf gets dropped onto her front porch asking her for help, and bring with him a truck-load full of trouble.

Will she be able to come out of this without a scratch? Or will she finally meet her match one way or another??

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! This sequel, of "Raised by Wolves,", has so many twists and turns that I was shocked by some of the events that occurred! This novel is suspenseful, sad, and endearing. It builds you up for the next installment of this series, expected to be released in June 2012. Which I can NOT wait for it to come out!!

• I'm still very happy about the relationship between Chase & Byrn! However, I was scared, sad, and mad a few times in this novel because of the choices that were made between them .... but I'm happy with how everything turned out.

• I'm very intrigued with who Byrn meets but 'can't quite touch' in her dreams, and how Callum's promise to her will change who she is for the better.

Again ... I recommend this to everyone who loves paranormal YA stories!! Those who are fans of Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Gena Showalter, Stephenie Meyer, and who likes werewolf novels should enjoy this novel as much as I did!

My Previous Review(s) for this Series : Book 1

Book Teaser(s) :
Apparently, keeping Archer out of my head was no protection against more mundane mind games. Even though I knew he was trying to get to me, I couldn't help staring at the image on the wall and wondering if he was right.
"Admit it, little Byrn---they've done a real number on you. Not a werewolf, barely human. They took you and they raised you and they used you. You're just a kid, and you never even had a chance."
I wasn't entirely sure how to reply. Blow me and screw you both seemed like strong contenders, but the peanut gallery in my head appeared to be favoring castration. ~ within Chapter 19

Top 5 Books I'm Thankful For (so far) in 2011

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!

Since today is Thanksgiving Day I decided to make a list of my top 5 books that I've read so far and that I'm Thankful for this year!! So, here you go:
  1. "Hard Bitten" [Chicagoland Vampires Series, Book 4] by Chloe Neill: 5 out of 5 stars!!! ::::WARNING----THIS BOOK HAD ME IN TEARS BY THE END OF IT:::: I loved Merit as always! Her relationship with Ethan takes some major turns ... some I loved and some I royally hated especially since I really want them to end up together in the end. And WOW .... the ending has a twist I NEVER expected! [Read more of Jess' Review for this book HERE]

  2. "Beautiful Disaster" by Jamie McGuire: 5 out of 5 stars!!!! THIS WAS A WONDERFUL NOVEL!! The author put together a story full of romance, friendship, and the links some would go to just so they could be a part of the person they love’s life. Abby is an intriguing character who had a great back-story, and the author took that story into turns that I never expected. But I absolutely LOVED the friendship and respect that Travis and Abby shared for each other, no matter what happened between them, they were there for each other no matter what. [Read more of Jess' Review for this book HERE]

  3. "The Iron Knight" [The Iron Fey Series, Book 4] by Julie Kagawa: 5 out of 5 stars!! "The Iron Knight" wraps up this wonderfully awesome series, and I was captivated and entertained so much in this story that I didn't want to put it down!! This book kept me jumping from the beginning from all of the twists that the author throws in it!! I was SOOO surprised with how it gives you multiple endings, in a way, that leave you reeling because your not sure if that's definitely going to happen or not. [Read more of Jess' Review for this book HERE]

  4. "Until There Was You" by Kristan Higgins: 5 out of 5 stars!!!!!! Oh My Goodness!!!! This is a wonderful, funny, and sweet novel that I could not get enough of!!! It is by far the best novel I have read of Kristan's, just topping out my old favorite of hers "Too Good To Be True!"

    This is the FIRST novel of Kristan's where you get to read from both points-of-view of the main characters, Posey & Liam, and I have got to say I was SOOO Happy about that!! As I love to be able to see what the guy thinks! [Read more of Jess' Review for this book HERE]

  5. "Raised By Wolves" [Raised by Wolves Series, Book 1] by Jennifer Lynn Barnes: 5 out of 5 stars!! I have to agree, completely, with Melissa Marr when she said, "Quite simply, the most compelling YA werewolf book out there." And Ms. Marr is soo right! This novel/series takes on a new meaning in and of itself. Even though I've only read the first novel, thus far, but it was so heart-warming, intriguing, and mysterious that I didn't want to put it down even when I had too!

Best Book Couples -- Happy Valentine's Day 2012

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE!!

In honor of it being Valentine's Day and all ... here is a list (in no particular order) of couples that I really enjoyed reading about within this past year:

♥ means that I gave the novel 5 stars
  • Samantha (Sam) & Ethan [from "O Little Town of Bramble" [within Small Town Christmas] by Katie Lane]: Two best friends finding out what they really mean to each other after being apart for years!

  • Isabel (Belly) & Conrad [from "We'll Always Have Summer" [A Summer Novel, Book 3] by Jenny Han]: Belly had a crush on Conrad for as long as she could remember and when he finally reciprocates those feelings she's thrilled, but reading about their trials and tribulations throughout the 'A Summer Novel' series made me love this couple all the more.

  • Renee, Galen, & Jack [from "Trinity" [de La Vega Cats Series, Book 1] by Lauren Dane]: This is one of my fave paranormal tri-mate couples!! Renee is a people pleaser who has a heart of gold but if she mad you had better stand back! Galen is a fierce jaguar shifter who despite his family and what some of them feel he can't get enough of Renee and would do anything for her. Jack--is a werewolf and an enforcer in his pack--comes in and riles up this couple turning them into an exceptional trio who I could stop wanting to read about!! I love their dynamics and the way their relationships played out!! ♥

  • Sabine & Ciar [from "Sabine" [...and the Beast Series, Book 1] by Moira Rogers (aka Bree & Donna)]: Even after fighting in a war, then dealing with Sabine's curse and Ciar's mean mother, it seems this couple can make it through just about anything!

  • Cordelia (Posey) & Liam [from "Until There Was You" by Kristan Higgins]: I have to say that I love the "good girl" with the "bad boy" type of romances and this romance between Posey & Liam has that and a whole lot more!! ♥

  • Lacey, Bram, & Ry [from "The Naughty List" by Jodi Redford]: Three best friends who are trying to make it work by being together, putting to use the remark 'that love can concur all.'

  • Alexis & Seth [from "Racing Outside the Line" [Love Stories at 190 mph Series, Book 1] by Kimberly Montague]: This is a couple who have had to deal with a LOT of trials to even get into a relationship, but seemed to pull through whatever came their way once they were both on the same page about what they wanted from each other! ♥

  • Sophie & Nathan [from "See You In My Dreams" [Speed Series, Book 1] by Jess Dee]: Their story is so great because their chemistry flies off the page that you just want to root for this duo from the very beginning!! Plus, you have the added mystery of their dream meetings and this unique nursery rhyme that only the two of them know because of their grandmothers. Their story is like an Adult Fairy Tale!

  • Merit & Ethan [from "Hard Bitten" [Chicagoland Vampires Series, Book 4] by Chloe Neill]: I don't know why they "work" as a couple but they just do! I love their relationship from how to they "fight" each other in a constant battle of wills but in the end they care about each other more then their responsibilities and more then they should. ♥

  • Stevie Rae & Rephaim [from "Awakened" [House of Night Series, Book 8] by P. C. Cast & Kristin Cast]: Their love story started out very unique, it will be very interesting to see how it will evolve, and how their relationship and choices will change as this series goes on. Now they're so cute together I just can't see them apart.

  • Mercy & Adam [from "River Marked" [Mercy Thompson Series, Book 6] by Patricia Briggs]: I'm sooo HAPPY that these two are finally "officially" together!! They have fought hard to get where they are, I just hope that now they can make it all work out for themselves! ♥

  • Kally & MacCauley (Mac) [from "Sneaks" by B. Button]: It's a unique situation that they fall in love within---both being from different time periods and that the first time that they meet Kally is 16-years-old and Mac is an infant. However, over the years (only 3 for Kally yet many more for Mac) they become very close and create a bond that was wonderful to read! It makes you think that they were always meant to be together. They were soul mates.

  • Dakota & Finn [from "Only Mine" [Fools Gold Series, Book 4] by Susan Mallery]: A chance meeting, the town Dakota live in, and a reality show brought this couple together. Before they met, they had completely different life plans and now they never want to be apart!! They are just one of those couples that you want to keep getting new information about.

  • Liliana & Micah [from "Lord of the Abyss" [Royal House of Shadows Series, Book 4] by Nalini Singh]: They are a couple who despite their many differences (at first) prove that who you are on the inside is what matters most. Their story is a part of a series, each book taking a new spin on a fairy tale, and theirs is a new version of The Beauty and The Beast. ♥

  • Carna, Sebastian (Blue), Austin, Jacob & Marcus [from "Claiming Their Mate" [Pack Seduction Series, Book 1] by Stacey Espino]: Four best friends find their destined mate, who just happens to be a tad reluctant at being mated with anyone (let alone the four of them). However, it's nice to read a story about sexy-dominant-shifter-males who will do anything for the woman they love.

  • Mary & Rhage [from "LOVER ETERNAL" [Black Dagger Brotherhood Series, Book 2] by J. R. Ward]: I love the story between these two!! Mary soothes Rhage and his beast, making them want nothing more then to keep her forever ... no matter what the cost. ♥

  • Christy & Alessandro [from "Christy" [within Wish Upon A Star] by Sarah Morgan]: Even though they were recently separated, now they are back together and hotter than ever!! Looking at the relationship these two have together (within and without of work) it's hard to see why they ever needed to be apart!

  • Meghan & Ash [from "The Iron Knight" [The Iron Fey Series, Book 4] by Julie Kagawa]: Their relationship has gone through many trials and tribulations throughout 'The Iron Fey' series but in the end it's all about how much you (and your friends) will go through for the one you love. ♥

  • Aurelia & Stephen [from "Only Mine" [Fools Gold Series, Book 4] by Susan Mallery]: They met on a reality show where they were matched up, even though Aurelia was quite a few years older than Stephen (something she didn't like at first). But in the end, they were each other’s perfect match!! They are just soo cute together, that you want the relationship to work out!!

  • Bronwyn (Bryn) & Chase [from "Raised By Wolves" [Raised by Wolves Series, Book 1] by Jennifer Lynn Barnes]: Brought together by unusual circumstances these two share a bond that most aren't lucky enough to have. However, with the constant danger that seems to exist around them it will be interesting to see where their choices will take them and their relationship. ♥

  • Jemma & Griff [from "That Voodoo You Do" [That Old Black Magic Series, Book 1] by Jodi Redford]: They have been friends since college but laws between witches and their familiars keep them apart, until Jemma takes it into her own hands to being them together. After she does ... there is nothing Griff won't do to make sure they stay together for good. You just gotta love those possessive cat-shifters. =0)

  • Ellie & Mikey [from "You Against Me" by Jenny Downham]: They have a common bond, both want to do and become more than what is already planned for them. Even though it's better for everyone (meaning their families) if they stay apart, they just can't. Once they meet, and even though they shouldn't, it's hard to tear them apart from each other.

  • Kara & Dupree [from "Kiss of Twilight" [Dark Bonds Series, Book 2] by Loribelle Hunt]: These two make quite a pair. Even though they are destined to be together, Dupree thinks he's not good enough for Kara and tries his hardest to be sure that she really wants to be bonded to him before it happens. They just make one great duo, I couldn't get enough of reading about their love story.

  • Abby & Travis [from "Beautiful Disaster" by Jamie McGuire]: They are a couple who stay friends no matter what life throws at them. The relationship that these two share is very fun to read about from the antics that they get each other into to the love that they have for one another. ♥

  • Jordan & Sam (Henry) [from "Catching Jordan" by Miranda Kenneally]: These best friends try to prove that no matter what happens nothing will change between them. But will they make it??

    I did love their friendship and how it progresses throughout the novel.

  • Charlotte & Trace [from "Enchanted By Blood" [within A Vampire for Christmas] by Laurie London]: They were meant to be together, so much so that even the laws of Trace's society couldn't keep them apart.

  • Beth & Wrath [from "DARK LOVER" [Black Dagger Brotherhood Series, Book 1] by J. R. Ward]: They are just so cute together. Even though the King of all vampires (Wrath) probably doesn't want to here that he's cute ... oh wells. *hehee* Beth brings goodness back into Wrath and the Black Dagger Brotherhood's lives. ♥

  • Amy & Tristan [from "His Eyes" by Renee Carter]: They had a rough start when they first got together since they both were from different worlds. However, over time Amy & Tristan's relationship grows from mutual respect with a tentative friendship into something a whole lot more.

  • Alexia & Lee [from "King of Darkness" [Chronicles of Yavn, Book 1] by Elisabeth Staab]: These are two people who are very protective of their friends. And even though they are complete opposites in some ways, they seem very similar in others. I can't wait to see what will happen to these two and were they'll end up as this series progresses.

Is there any couple who you would add to this list?? If so---who, from which book, and why??
