 Title: Clockwise (Clockwise #1)
Author: Elle Strauss

Casey Donovan has issues: hair, height and uncontrollable trips to the 19th century! And now this—she’s accidentally taken Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time. Awkward.

Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just “brotherly” protectiveness?

When they return to the present, things go back to the way they were before: Casey parked on the bottom of the rung of the social ladder and Nate perched high on the very the top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her younger brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.

Which of course, she does.

Author: Josin L. McQueen

No one crosses the wall of light . . . except for one girl who doesn’t remember who she is, where she came from, or how she survived. A harrowing, powerful debut thriller about finding yourself and protecting your future—no matter how short and uncertain it may be.

The Arclight is the last defense. The Fade can’t get in. Outside the Arclight’s border of high-powered beams is the Dark. And between the Light and the Dark is the Grey, a narrow, barren no-man’s-land. That’s where the rescue team finds Marina, a lone teenage girl with no memory of the horrors she faced or the family she lost. Marina is the only person who has ever survived an encounter with the Fade. She’s the first hope humanity has had in generations, but she could also be the catalyst for their final destruction. Because the Fade will stop at nothing to get her back. Marina knows it. Tobin, who’s determined to take his revenge on the Fade, knows it. Anne-Marie, who just wishes it were all over, knows it.

When one of the Fade infiltrates the Arclight and Marina recognizes it, she will begin to unlock secrets she didn’t even know she had. Who will Marina become? Who can she never be again?

  *********************
Review:





Chosen at Nightfall is the 5th, and final, book in the Shadow Falls series by C.C. Hunter. This is a wonderful young adult series that I'm going to miss. Kylie has a lot on her plate in this book. She feels overwhelmed between deciding which guy to choose, dealing with a ghost who wants something from her, someone wanting to kill her, etc... At the end of the last book, Kylie left Shadow Falls to find out more about the special kind of supernatural she is. Luckily in this book, it doesn't take her too long before she decides that Shadow Falls is where she belongs.

I was just a tad bored in the very beginning when Kylie was staying with her grandfather. I couldn't wait until she was interacting with the other characters again. Once she's back at Shadow Falls, there's never a dull moment. Every background character plays a big part in making this such a great series. I normally don't even care about the background characters in most books, but C.C. Hunter does a great job of giving each one their own distinct personality in this series.

In this book, Kylie has finally found herself. All through the series, she struggled with who and what she was. She hated being different from everyone else. In this book, she finds out about even more special qualities that she has. She's not exactly happy about it, but she accepts it. She has a large role to play, and must learn to fight in order to save herself and the ones she loves.

The love triangle finally comes to an end! I have been going back and forth between Lucas and Derek during this whole series. In the last book I was definitely Team Derek. In this book, both guys were back on equal ground. Both of them are great guys, but they have also both done something to hurt Kylie. I actually ended up being a little surprised by her decision, but in the end I think it was the right one. I was completely satisfied with the ending – everything was wrapped up nicely. I'm going to miss all of these characters. If you are a fan of YA paranormal romances, then I definitely recommend this series!
