Blog with Bite February Features!

February Blog with Bite Features - Polls Are Closed and the Winners are in!

The Host: A NovelOur February Adult Selection will by The Host, by Stephanie Meyer. 

Description (Barnes & Noble):
Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves-Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

February YA Selection will be Firespell (Dark Elite, Book 1) by Chloe Neill

Description from Amazon.com

Firespell (Dark Elite, Book 1)New Girl.
New School.
Old Evil.

From the author of the Chicagoland Vampires novels.

A new series about a boarding school filled with something worse than homework.


Lily's parents have sent her to a fancy boarding school in Chicago filled with the ultra-rich. If that wasn't bad enough, she's hearing and seeing bizarre things on St. Sophie's creepy campus. Her roommate, Scout, keeps her sane, but keeps disappearing at night. When one day Lily finds Scout running from real-life monsters, she learns the hard way that Scout is involved in a splinter group of rebel teens.

They protect Chicago from demons, vamps, and dark magic users. It's too bad Lily doesn't have powers of her own to help. At least, none that she's discovered yet...

A love triangle between two bodies, three souls all with lusting hearts, that is way beyond anything I could ever think of or fantasize about. Way tooo hot!

I just read Firespell a few weeks ago and loved it! The host I haven't read in a few years, so I'll have to reread that one.

Oh man, I have to review a Stephenie Meyer title. Is it too soon to ask people to set their phasers to stun? You have all been warned.

I was actually surprised when the Host won the poll. Give the public what they want right??? LOL.

Em- don't go in with a "Twi" mentality, it really wasn't recognizable as her voice. The only similarities were the self-sacrificing heroine.
