    The Extras: Teasers #8

    There are so many amazing books out there – released or soon-to-be-released – that have certain passages that just captivate.

    Here are just a few of those that caught my attention in the past month.

    ***

    There were quite a few passages to choose from, all of which tease, so it made things very difficult. I tend to love all things sarcastic, but decided to go for something a bit more on the steamy side without being too revealing.

    Because, I figure, if you want to know more, you’ll just have to read it yourself. This is a teaser after all.

    Alex and Aiden:

    Breathing became difficult as we continued to stare at one another. His dark waves had fallen forward into his eyes. He wasn’t moving, and I couldn’t even if I’d wanted to. I didn’t. Oh, gods, I didn’t want to move ever. I saw the moment he recognized the change in me. Something shifted in those eyes of his and his lips parted.

    This is one book that’s not all about the love story. It’s eerie so I knew I had to choose a passage that fit. And while I would have loved to tease something about the closet it would have been just too revealing.

    And so here’s just a little something to lure you into Frost House.

    Leena:

    Over the summer I kept thinking what good luck it was I’d stumbled upon Frost House that day. If I’d believed in anything more mystical than textbook facts back then, I might have wondered if it had been fate. I have no idea, now, if fate exists. But I do know one thing about the day I found Frost House:

    Good luck had nothing to do with it.

    When I think of the word “teaser” when it comes to this book, the first – and only – thing that comes to mind is Mirko. He is such an unbelievable tease.

    While there are many, many scenes which showcase just what a tease he is, I thought this one about a completely innocent training session was totally tease-worthy.

    Brooke and Mirko:

    We intertwined and melded our bodies together in intimate ways. I tried not to think about that, but there were moments when his warm breath blew across my neck, or his leg stroked the inside of my thigh, which kept the thought fresh in my mind.

    In this epic book there were a lot of wonderful scenes to choose from. From heartbreak to longing to despair, the entire story feels like one long tease. So I tried to find a passage that has just a little bit of everything in it.

    And because it’s a teaser, I won’t say who the boy is.

    Elisa and…

    Even more than the cold, I’m frozen by the sadness in his beautiful eyes, deep and true. He squeezes them closed a moment and breathes deeply through his nose. Then, with one swift movement, he cups the back of my neck with a strong hand, pulls my head forward, and presses his lips to mine….

    This book is romantic and charming and sweet with so many lovely moments that will just draw you into the story.

    But the biggest tease, and my favorite, has to be in the preface, which I’ve only included just a tiny glimpse at.

    Liz and…

    “Your boyfriend won’t mind if you dance with someone else?” a familiar voice whispered in my ear, barely audible over the loud, trancelike music….

    He pulled me closer before I could respond to the question. His arms wrapped around my waist, and I rested my head on his shoulder, closing my eyes and inhaling the sweet scent of pine coming off his skin.

    I included my favorite line in my review, which came from a much longer scene that I loved.

    Well, just to tease a little more, here is a peek at the paragraph right before that one line.

    Elise and…

    And I liked the feeling of being almost crushed, of being so much smaller than him, of his body enveloping mine, and of his mouth hot against my lips.

    It was tricky to find a short enough passage to tease without giving anything away about where this story is headed or just how this story ends.

    So, here is just a small one that gives a little insight into how Anya thinks.

    Anya and Win:

    I knew I wasn’t supposed to care what Win thought of me anymore, but I did. Had I known he was coming, I might have had time to steel myself against him. I might have refused him altogether. But my feet kept walking me ineluctably toward the table where he sat…

    As with the first book in this series there are so many beautiful passages. But since I had to choose something that teases, I thought I’d choose one that pulls you into this story right from the start.

    It certainly left me dying to read more. And yes, I am not revealing who the characters are on purpose.

    He’d moved in closer. While her eyes were closed, he’d stepped forward until the back of his hand brushed the bare skin above her elbow. The contact made her ache to close what little space was left between them. It stirred something deep within her. Every inch of her became super sensitive, her flesh reaching out for him, knowing he was the source of some unknown thrill.

    The only way to tease this book is with just how frightful and disturbing Furnace Penitentiary is. And since most of the book is set in Furnace, it’s all pretty much the stuff of nightmares.

    So, here is just a little something that hints at what Furnace has to offer its residents. And it isn’t even one of the more gruesome ones or ones that top my list of favorites. But it’s still seriously awesome.

    Alex:

    The wail of the siren cut out, and at the same time a thousand red lights embedded in the prison walls burst into life. I was plunged into a thick, choking silence, like someone had thrown me into a pool of blood. I saw the world in shades of red and black, and quickly found myself praying for night again. At least you can hide in the dark.

    As I mentioned just days ago, this entire book is filled with gorgeous, amazing and enticing passages. I listed one of my favorites in my review, but here’s another peek at just one more.

    Amazing, right? Do I even have to ask?

    Juliette and…

    Everything is on fire. My cheeks my hands the pit of my stomach and I’m drowning in waves of emotion and a storm of fresh rain and all I feel is the strength of his silhouette against mine and I never ever ever ever want to forget this moment. I want to stamp him into my skin and save him forever.

    Review: All These Things I’ve Done

    All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin was released in the U.S. on September 6, 2011 in hardcover, audio and eBook formats. It is currently available to order online in all formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (Books for Young Readers), a division of Macmillan, the print edition is 368 pages.

    All These Things I’ve Done is the first book in the Birthright series.

    Goodreads description:

    In 2083, chocolate and coffee are illegal, paper is hard to find, water is carefully rationed, and New York City is rife with crime and poverty.

    And yet, for Anya Balanchine, the sixteen-year-old daughter of the city’s most notorious (and dead) crime boss, life is fairly routine. It consists of going to school, taking care of her siblings and her dying grandmother, trying to avoid falling in love with the new assistant D.A.’s son, and avoiding her loser ex-boyfriend.

    That is until her ex is accidentally poisoned by the chocolate her family manufactures and the police think she’s to blame. Suddenly, Anya finds herself thrust unwillingly into the spotlight–at school, in the news, and most importantly, within her mafia family.

    My brother Leo was supposed to take my father’s place as head of the family if anything happened to Daddy. He was the oldest after all and I was just a girl.

    But Leo was injured in an accident and he just wasn’t the same as he used to be. An accident that was really an attempt on Daddy’s life. An accident which not only took away the Leo I knew, but also took my mother from me. That was a long time ago. Back when Daddy was still alive.

    Someone got the job done, eventually. Natty and I saw them when they came for Daddy. We were right there, hiding beneath his desk. Natty still has nightmares. I do, too.

    It’s up to me to to be in charge of our family now. Nana is still our official guardian, but she isn’t well. So I have to look after Leo and Natty. I am responsible for us all. I just have to stay away from trouble.

    But trouble seems to want to find me. First Gable Arsley, my newly ex-boyfriend, gets poisoned by the chocolate my family sells. The illegal chocolate. Did I mention that in 2083 chocolate is illegal?

    Then of course I have to fall for Win Delacroix, the son of the new Assistant District Attorney. If that isn’t asking for trouble, I don’t know what is.

    So now, instead of keeping quiet and taking care of my family, I’m being questioned for Gable’s poisoning. And because of my involvement with Win, I’m in the spotlight. I may only be in high school, but already I feel like I need forgiveness for all these things I’ve done.

    ***

    All These Things I’ve Done takes readers to a future in which water is scarce, paper is practically non-existent and coffee and chocolate are illegal, which has given rise to organized crime.

    And in New York City in 2083, the Balanchine family is one of the most powerful crime families, even without Leo Balanchine at the helm. Because the chocolate they manufacture is some of the best available and people don’t care whether it’s illegal or not. They just want it.

    The story centers around Anya Balanchine, the sixteen-year-old daughter of the deceased head of the business, Leo Balanchine. While she has no plans to enter the family business, she can’t escape her family name and all that comes with it.

    She may not know exactly what she wants to do, but for now she’s happy that her Nana Galina is still alive and glad to be rid of her boyfriend Gable as she starts her Junior year at Holy Trinity.

    But when Gable gets poisoned by her family’s chocolate, they are quick to point fingers at her. And if she can’t clear her name and get herself out of trouble, she’s at risk of losing everything and everyone she cares about.

    All These Things I’ve Done is a story about one girl’s struggle to keep her family together against tremendous odds. At just sixteen Anya is trying to juggle her responsibilities to her brother and sister and to her extended family, with her own interests, which includes trying not to fall victim to Win Delacroix’s charms. A battle she is most definitely losing.

    Author Gabrielle Zevin has written an incredibly engaging, heartwarming and heartbreaking story. The world she has laid the foundation for in this first book in the series is intriguing – a crime-ridden city, officials on the take, natural resources scarce and caffeine illegal. Quite the bleak and not so distant future.

    The main character, Anya Balanchine is strong, but not too tough, smart in the ways of the world, if not as book smart as her sister and intensely loyal to and protective of her family. She is likable and sympathetic, if not immediately lovable. She is not quick to forgive and forget, but her life experiences have made her that way.

    The story doesn’t end on what would typically be considered a cliffhanger, but there are quite a few loose ends as far as Anya, Win and Leo Jr. are concerned, and the door is left wide open for any number of possibilities.

    All These Things I’ve Done is an exciting start to this new series with a mystery that needs to be solved, a forbidden love story and ultimately one where one girl must decide whether or not to claim her birthright.

    Reviewer gives this book…

    About the audiobook:

    Audiobook: Unabridged Compact Discs

    Length: 8 Discs/Approximately 10 hours

    Read by: Ilyana Kadushin

    Ilyana Kadushin was the perfect reader for Anya Balanchine. The tone of her voice was a close match to how I might have imagined Anya’s to be. She did a wonderful job with the pacing, making it easy for this first-time audiobook reviewer to follow along and become engaged with the story.

    She also did a great job for many of the other characters in this book, especially Nana Galina, changing her voice just enough to enable me to easily distinguish one character from another.

    While I didn’t enjoy the voice she used for Gable, he had the least amount of dialogue in this story, so I didn’t find that it detracted from the overall experience.

    I would definitely listen to another audiobook by this narrator and may just continue listening to this series if Ilyana Kadushin is the narrator.

    On a personal note:

    I really loved getting to know Anya Balanchine. She was the very best part of this story. She was an incredibly sympathetic character. And as tough a front as she put up, and as strong as she wanted to be, she just couldn’t keep that wall up. And that was because of Win. Who I absolutely love.

    Win brought out the very best in Anya, even though she fought against him. He was kind and patient and almost, but not quite, too perfect to be true. He is the ideal book boyfriend.

    I really feel like I got to know Anya and her family in this story. The author did an amazing job in developing her character and her family’s history. And I can’t wait to see just what decisions Anya will make about her future with the family business, her brother, the very intriguing Yuji Ono and of course Win Delacroix.

    Although this story is set in the future, it almost feels like it’s one set in the past, back when organized crime took hold during Prohibition. While the law tries to maintain control, it’s really the criminal enterprises that hold the power, especially as so many officials are being bribed. And I can’t wait to see just what Win’s father, the Assistant District Attorney, plans to do if he wins the election and becomes the new DA.

    In the next book, I would love to learn more about this world that the author has introduced in this first book in the series and to hear why certain things were made illegal versus others.

    Anya has some really tough choices to make, and from what I’ve learned so far about her, she might not make the right ones. But I am excited to see just what she’ll do next.

    As this was my first audiobook for review, I have to talk just a little bit about that experience.

    I was totally afraid that I wouldn’t enjoy listening to an audiobook. I’d only listened to one before. But I really enjoyed Ilyana Kadushin’s reading of this story. I found it easy to follow along and her voice had just the right pitch so that I didn’t find it in the least bit annoying.

    The audiobook was the perfect companion when I was walking around. I thought my visual surroundings would distract me from what I was listening to, but in the case of this narrator, I was easily able to stay focused. I also found it great to listen to at night when I just didn’t feel like reading, although the narrator did have a soothing voice so I may have drifted off once or twice.

    While the audiobook will never replace the printed page for me – I still enjoy discovering the story on my own – I will definitely now be listening to audiobooks in addition to reading them.

    The Trailers: September

    They’re back – after a very long summer hiatus! For those times when you just need a short break from reading. Here, for your viewing pleasure, are a few amazing book trailers for some of the recently released and upcoming books for September.

    I am a bit late, as many of the September books have already been released. But once again, I say better late than never.

    And I know I missed July and August completely, but it seems that during the summer, book trailers aren’t released quite as early or as frequently as they are throughout the remainder of the year and so my July trailers post still sits in drafts with only a tiny handful of trailers.

    But, they’re back…and I’ll be posting my October trailers post in the next couple of weeks.

    Giveaway: All These Things I’ve Done

    All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin released today, September 6, 2011, in the U.S. in hardcover, audio and eBook formats.

    As today is its book birthday, the publisher has decided to offer up a copy of All These Things I’ve Done to one winner in the U.S. or Canada and has released this tempting new trailer which perfectly hints at what can be expected in this exciting first book in this new series.

    I am in the middle of listening to the audiobook edition of All These Things I’ve Done, so I have not requested a print copy for review, but I’m super excited to find out how everything turns out in the end. But as this is the start of a series, I expect that not everything will be answered and that I’ll have to wait for book two’s release to find out just a bit more.

    I absolutely love the beauty and simplicity of this book’s cover and those yummy chocolate hearts in the book trailer are to die for.

    My Reading Pile #25

    It was a sadly interesting week for mail delivery. I only got mail delivered on two days this week, and I don’t mean books…just mail. Clearly my mailman took his holiday super early.

    The signed copies of Shade and Shift by Jeri Smith-Ready from Constellation Books for giveaway are still MIA. We’re on day eleven now since they were mailed and my books from June still haven’t showed up, though they were also resent eleven days ago.

    I did get the remaining copies of Witch Eyes early in the week and forgot to take a picture of them before I sent them on to the giveaway winners, so my mail pile photo consists once more of one lonely item. Thank goodness I got this lovely graphic created which showcases an actual pile of books. While it resembles my ever growing reading pile, it does not match what I received this week.

    I received an audiobook from Macmillan Audio of Gabrielle Zevin’s All These Things I’ve Done for review. As I just received it, and it’s releasing on Tuesday, I’m hoping to get a chance to listen to it this weekend in order to have my review up on Tuesday. It will be my very first audiobook reviewed on the blog and I am super nervous.

    Here are the books I have in my reading pile this week.

    (September 4-September 10, 2011)

    ***

    First up is All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin. I just received the audiobook for review from Macmillan Audio and I’m super excited to give it a listen. The audiobook is an unabridged edition read by Ilyana Kadushin, the narrator for the Twilight saga.

    I have an ARC of this book that I won during Armchair BEA and I hope to read that – or the eBook I have on pre-order – a little later in the year so I can compare it to my experience with the audio edition.

    I absolutely love the cover for this book and I am excited – and nervous as an audiobook newbie – to be taken to New York City in 2083 where coffee and chocolate are illegal. The idea of a world where coffee, one of my most favorite things, is illegal is what first drew me to this book.

    And the chance to go to a future “rife with crime” and to meet a main character, the daughter of a crime boss, who is accused of poisoning her ex-boyfriend, sounds like a deliciously dark and dangerous story.

    I had no idea that this was the first book in a planned trilogy until I saw the insert from the publisher, but now that I know, I’m more curious than ever to meet Anya Balanchine.

    Book trailer for All These Things I’ve Done:

    Later this week I’ll be reading Weaving Destiny by G.P. Ching. I received and eARC for review from the author. And in anticipation of my stop on the tour, on September 12, I will be reading this second book in The Soulkeepers Series.

    I absolutely loved the first book, which was told from Jacob Lau’s point of view and I can’t wait to read this sequel from his girlfriend Malini Gupta’s perspective. According to the description, in this installment their relationship will be tested when a new Soulkeeper enters the picture and wants Jacob for herself.

    And with such captivating and beautifully written sentences like this one from the description, I have no doubt I will love this one just as much as the first book in the series.

    Fate is a tapestry of choices, and she has the power to weave hers.

    I am hopeful that things work out for Jacob and Malini when this second book in the series ends. But I am anticipating a wait until the final book in the trilogy, Return to Eden, is released later this year.

    I was planning on adding a third book to the pile this week, but once I discovered that the audiobook was releasing on Tuesday, I thought I should see how challenging it is for me to review before opting for a three book week.

    And as I’m super busy with work this week, trying to squeeze in any time for a third book doesn’t seem likely.

    I am still seriously behind on my July and August reads, so I may choose to add items back to the pile next week instead of opting for new reads. But as I haven’t been requesting any new books for review and my mailman refuses to deliver any of the books I’ve been expecting, my pile is shrinking. For now.

    Wishful Thinking reads:

    I would really love to read Deadly Cool if I wasn’t so behind on my reading. I love the cover, the title, and the description has the perfect level of sarcasm that just appeals to me.

    I am making it my mission to read this book before it releases as it’s been taunting me on my shelf for ages, but I’m doubtful it will move from “wishful” to “read” this week.

    Those left behind:

    By choosing only two books for the reading pile each week, I’m only behind on one from last week. Fifty percent is still a fail, though. And I hope to get a chance to read Lie in the next couple of weeks as I still think it will be a book I’ll love.

    ***

    Although it’s a holiday weekend, I am working. So I don’t expect to get ahead on my reading this week. But I at least hope to finish the books I’m currently halfway through and get my reviews up on the blog this week.

    I find that, more than anything, I’m having a tough time getting my scheduled features and reviews up with only seven days to work with. I will have my “The Extras” and “The Trailers” posts up soon. But as there were so few July and August trailers available when I was ready to create my monthly posts, I had to keep them in drafts and now just have no free days to post them. But they will be back very soon.

    I am still hiding from NetGalley and Galley Grab, but I hope to get back to both of them later this month or early next month. I hate being behind on books I’ve requested for review, but I am starting to realize that I do need sleep every once in awhile in order to write a review that makes sense.

    And someday I hope to read the books from series I’ve loved forever, but just haven’t had a chance to catch up on since they aren’t required reads. Yes, I still haven’t read Darkest Mercy, Afterlife, City of Fallen Angels, Passion, Grace of Day, and two books from the Strange Angels series. Ugh. One of these days…

    As I mentioned in my post earlier today, I received the second of three ARCs for All These Things I’ve Done that I ended up trading for or winning in a contest. I clearly wanted to get my hands on this book. I just don’t think I needed to get my hands on three copies. So, I’m giving away one of those copies I had traded for.

    All These Things I’ve Done comes out on September 27, 2011.

    I have not yet read the book, but I hope to soon, but as this is an extra copy I will give it away now so that there’s plenty of time to read it before release date.

    All details for the giveaway are below.

    So as with my other ARC giveaways, to honor the spirit and purpose of the ARC, this one is only for readers who will be willing to review it. You don’t need a blog. Goodreads or LibraryThing or other review site will be fine, but in order to be eligible to win this book your past reviews must be fairly thorough.

    What’s up for grabs: An ARC of All These Things I’ve Done, that I received from a trade, plus random signed and unsigned swag.

    The deets:

    1. One entry per person.

    2. You must be 13 or older.

    3. Giveaway is International

    4. You agree to review the book on or before release date. (I will be checking – and hopefully discovering a really cool new blog. If you don’t post a review, you will no longer be eligible for future ARC giveaways.)

    5. You must have a blog or a place where you will post your review, such as Goodreads, LibraryThing, etc. and your past reviews must be fairly thorough.

    6. Your review does not have to be positive. It just needs to be an honest one. And if you are on Goodreads, please add the book to your “to read” list.

    7. Contest ends at June 17th at midnight. Winner will be chosen by Random.org and announced on Saturday the 18th.

    There is no requirement to like or follow, but following the blog is always appreciated.

    Congratulations Jessica! You will have 48 hours in which to respond to my email with your details. If you do not respond I will have to choose another winner.

    As I am anticipating another copy of this ARC, I have drawn another name and once I receive that copy I will contact the 2nd place finisher to see if they are interested in receiving that copy.

    Thank you to everyone who has entered! I hope to have another ARC giveaway soon, and my Half-Blood giveaway is going on now!
