Want It Wednesday #13

Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Release Date: July 7, 2009 (YAY! It got moved up!!!)

About the Book: (This is Book 2 in The Immortals Series, so there may be spoilers in the synopsis):
Eager to learn everything she can about her new abilities as an Immortal, Ever turns to her beloved Damen to show her the way. But just as her powers are increasing, Damen’s are waning.

In an attempt to save him, Ever travels to the magical dimension of Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen’s tortured past; a past which he has always kept hidden from her. But in her quest to cure Damen, Ever discovers an ancient text that details the workings of time. Now Ever must chose between turning back the past and saving her family from the accident that claimed their lives—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows sicker every day...

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I was super excited to read Evermore and I was thrilled when I got an ARC and was able to review it a few months before it came out. Bad part of that is now I've been waiting for what seems like forever for Blue Moon to be released! I am very much addicted to the world Alyson Noel has created in Evermore and am eagerly awaiting Damen and Ever's return-so of course, a happy dance was in order when I found out the release date has been moved up a month to July!

Immortal by Gillian Shields

Release Date: August 4, 2009

About the Book: Wyldcliffe Abbey School for Young Ladies, housed in a Gothic mansion on the bleak northern moors, is elite, expensive, and unwelcoming. When Evie Johnson is torn away from her home by the sea to become the newest scholarship student, she is more isolated than she could have dreamed. Strict teachers, snobbish students, and the oppressive atmosphere of Wyldcliffe leave Evie drowning in loneliness.

Evie's only lifeline is Sebastian, a rebellious, mocking, dangerously attractive young man she meets by chance. As Evie's feelings for Sebastian grow with each secret meeting, she starts to fear that he is hiding something about his past. And she is haunted by glimpses of a strange, ghostly girl—a girl who is so eerily like Evie, she could be a sister. Evie is slowly drawn into a tangled web of past and present that she cannot control. And as the extraordinary, elemental forces of Wyldcliffe rise up like the mighty sea, Evie is faced with an astounding truth about Sebastian, and her own incredible fate.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I actually had not heard anything about this book until it popped up on Amazon under Blue Moon with the "customers also bought" display. It sounds like a dark gothic romance ghost story so I was excited to stumble upon this one. Plus in the author bio it says she taught at a school where there were rumors of a ghost of a young girl could be heard crying in the night. Just the perfect thing to make me want to add this to my ever growing wish list.

What's on your list this Wednesday?


  1. Ohhh me wants, me wants Blue Moon. I loved Evermore and cannot wait to get into that world again. Immortal sounds fantastic and it is one of my wants also.

    This week I decided on MIchelle Rowen's Demon Princess but it will not come out until October I will be waiting a long long time.

  2. I am so excited for Blue Moon!! I'm glad other people are loving Evermore too!

  3. I haven't read Evermore yet! I keep thinking about buying it verse waiting for my library to get it in...

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
