This week I bought Insurgent by Veronica Roth, I'm not crazy about this series but I decided to give it another shot and read the sequel.
And I got Succubus Dreams by Richelle Mead for my nook
Series: Georgina Kincaid #2
Author: Richelle Mead
Love hurts, and no one knows it better than Georgina Kincaid. If she so much as kisses Seth Mortensen, the shy, sexy writer she's been dating, she'll drain his life force. Admittedly, the shape shifting and immortality perks of a succubus are terrific, but it's completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can't get down with the one mortal who accepts her for who she is. . .
It's not just her personal life that's in chaos. Doug, Georgina's co-worker at a local bookstore, has been exhibiting bizarre behavior, and Georgina suspects something far more demonic than double espressos. She could use an assist from Bastien, an irresistibly charming incubus and her best immortal friend, but he's giving Georgina some highly distracting come-hither vibes. Georgina is going to have to work solo on this one--and fast, because soon, Doug's life won't be the only one on the line
Review: At this point in time, having read Vampire Academy, the Dark Swan series and what out there of the Bloodlines series, I think I can call myself a Richelle Mead fan. I can say I didn't find her Succubus series as addictive as I did her Dark Swan series, but it's definitely picked up in this second book. One thing I do have to mention is how I do see some recycling of plotlines, for example, this second book reminded me a lot of the first book in the Bloodlines series. That said, it's still a pretty good mystery, Mead does a great job mixing different mythologies, and there's hot smut *wink wink*. It's a fun book to read, and I personally felt more eager to continue the series than I did with the first book in this series (which ironically also happen to me with Mead's Bloodlines series).

It's finally here, the Vampire Academy trailer. I actually enjoy Mead's Bloodlines and adult series a lot more than this series but one can not always have what one wants :P It looks very Mean Girls, but there is a reason for that Mark Waters is directing it ;)

I read this book immediately after Saoirse Ronan was cast, and while I can't say I loved I do think it can make a pretty interesting movie. I also adore Saoirse's look in it. Take a look.
