Random Post: Triple-Whammy Cover Reveals

gallagher girls book six united we spy

UNITED WE SPY is the FINAL Installment in the Gallagher Girls!
 I'm a very much loved fan since my early teens and you could say I have been waiting for this book for a very long time. I think the title is very appropriate for the last book as well as the cover.



This is the complete series... What do you think?!

Now I have heard the title of this final book, I was so glad isn't wasn't going to be Detergent! How ridiculous. But I love this cover its so much better than the US and it has the right colour scheme with the rest of the series. I'm looking forward to completing my collection.


I really enjoyed What's Left of Me, and in all honesty I didn't know the cover had come out until today. I was really hoping for a second book, because there is some unanswered questions and relationships that I really crave for.

Its a bit of a random post, bit its something to fill the time without stressing over a reviews. And they are some very awesome reveals and books that I really need to read this year. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Happy Reading!

Blog Tour/Excerpt - Chantress by Amy Butler Greenfield


Hi Everyone, and Welcome to my stop of the Chantress by Itching for Books Blog tours. Before I show you my excerpt of this tour, here is a little more about the novel:

Title - Chantress
Author - Amy Butler Greenfield
Genre - YA
Publisher - Margaret K. McElderry Books
Release Date - May 7th 2013


Lucy’s Chantress magic will make her the most powerful — and most hunted — girl in England.

“Sing, and the darkness will find you.” This warning has haunted fifteen-year-old Lucy ever since she was eight and shipwrecked on a lonely island. Lucy’s guardian, Norrie, has lots of rules, but the most important is that Lucy must never sing. Not ever. Now it is 1667, Lucy is fifteen, and on All Hallows’ Eve, Lucy hears a tantalizing melody on the wind. She can’t help but sing — and she is swept into darkness.

When she awakes in England, Lucy hears powerful men discussing Chantresses — women who can sing magic into the world. They are hunting her, but she escapes and finds sanctuary with the Invisible College, an organization plotting to overthrow the nefarious Lord Protector. The only person powerful enough to bring about his downfall is a Chantress. And Lucy is the last one in England.

Lucy struggles to master the song-spells and harness her power, but the Lord Protector is moving quickly. And her feelings for Nat, an Invisible College apprentice and scientist who deeply distrusts her magic, only add to her confusion…

Time is running out, and the fate of England hangs in the balance in this entrancing novel that is atmospheric and lyrical, dangerous and romantic.

Excerpt
Chapter One

I was digging in the garden when I heard it: a strange, wild singing on the wind.
I sat back on my heels, a carrot dropping from my mud-splattered hands.
no one sang here. Not on this island
Perhaps I'd misheard-
No, there it was again: a lilting line, distant but clqeat. It lasted hardly longer than a heartbeat but it left
me certain of one thing: It was more than a gull's cry I'd heard. It was a song.
But who was singing it?
I glanced of my shoulder at Norrie, hunched over a cabbage bed, a gray frizzle poking out from under
her linen cap. As far as I knew, she was the only other inhabitant of this lonely Atlantic island, but it
couldn't have been Norrie I had heard. For if there was one rule that my guardian set above all others, it
was this one: There must be no singing. Ever.
Sing and the darkness will find you.
We were still dripping from the shipwreck when Norrie first told me this. She had repeated it often since 
then, but there was no need. The terror in her eyes for the first time had silenced me immediately - that and my own grief. So deep I'm drowning in it. The sea had taken my mother and had almost taken me. That was enough darkness to last me a lifetime; I had no desire to court more.
