On My Bookshelves #4

This new feature highlights the books that I,
a crazy book addict,
have purchased, brought home, placed on one of
my bulging shelves, and put off reading
until I finished my current one...
except that I somehow never did read them!

This book meme will also highlight those books
I have already read,
and would love to re-read, because
they're absolutely wonderful!!

Here's my list for this week!

(first published May 1, 2008)
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

At the eerily Gothic Evernight Academy, the other students are sleek, smart, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.

When she meets handsome, brooding Lucas he warns her to be careful--even when it comes to caring about him. But the connection between them can't be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart...and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed.

From the Goodreads Synopsis

Evernight Academy: an exclusive boarding school for the most beautiful, dangerous students of all—vampires. Bianca, born to two vampires, has always been told her destiny is to become one of them.

But Bianca fell in love with Lucas—a vampire hunter sworn to destroy her kind. They were torn apart when his true identity was revealed, forcing him to flee the school.

Although they may be separated, Bianca and Lucas will not give each other up. She will risk anything for the chance to see him again, even if it means coming face-to-face with the vampire hunters of Black Cross—or deceiving the powerful vampires of Evernight. Bianca's secrets will force her to live a life of lies.

After escaping from Evernight Academy, the vampire boarding school where they met, Bianca and Lucas take refuge with Black Cross, a fanatical group of vampire hunters. Bianca must hide her supernatural heritage or risk certain death at its hands. But when Black Cross captures her friend—the vampire Balthazar—hiding is no longer an option. Soon Bianca and Lucas are on the run again, pursued not only by Black Cross, but by the powerful leaders of Evernight. Yet no matter how far they travel, Bianca can't escape her destiny. Bianca has always believed their love could survive anything...but can it survive what's to come?

Bianca and Lucas have always believed they could endure anything to be together. When a twist of fate not only transforms Bianca into a wraith but also turns Lucas into a vampire—the very creature he spent his life hunting—they are left reeling.

Haunted by his powerful need to kill, Lucas can turn to only one place for help . . . Evernight Academy. Bianca is determined to remain with him. But with the vampire leader of Evernight waging a war against wraiths, her former home has become the most dangerous place she could be, despite the new powers her ghostly transformation has given her...

I won these books in an eBay auction several months ago,
and was ecstatic when I got them
and saw that they looked brand new!
(They had been listed as used.)
Now, all i have to do is read them! 
I have so many terrific books I want to read, though...

Here's hoping I'll be able
to get to all of them someday!


  1. I have had my eye on this series/author for a while but never managed to pick it up. Are you planning to review them later on? I'm curious for what your thoughts will be. Also did you hear of the authors novel Fateful? Apparently it's a YA about werewolves on the Titanic? Sounded interesting to me.

  2. Hey there, Jessie!

    Oh, I definitely plan to review them later on! I've been wanting to read this series for quite some time. I might start on it right after I finish "The Academy", which I received as an ARC, from the author.

    As for this novel, "Fateful", no, I haven't heard of it. I'll go check it out on Goodreads. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! Also, thanks for commenting!

    BTW, did you read my Book Blogger Hop post from Friday? You're featured in it!! : )

  3. That's a good haul you've got there :)
    I've had to stop myself looking at EBay any more, there are way too many books that I want on there, hehe.

  4. Hi, Jamie!

    Yes, I'm the same way....I also go to Amazon A LOT.
