Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong…
After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and he's out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he's silenced her...forever.

OMG! I love this series and I CAN NOT WAIT for this, the fourth, book to come out. But I'm also not waiting for it because if I read this book than I'll want to read the sixth (and final!!!) book but it won't be coming out till December 14, 2010.


Glimpse by Carol Lynch Williams

Twelve-year-old Hope’s life is turned upside down when her older sister, Lizzie, becomes an elective mute and is institutionalized after trying to kill herself. Hope and Lizzie have relied on each other from a young age, ever since the death of their father. Their mother, who turns tricks to support her family, is a reluctant and unreliable parent—at best. During the course of this lyrical and heartbreaking narrative from an exceptionally promising YA voice, readers will discover the chilling reason why Lizzie has stopped speaking—and why Hope is the only one who can bring the truth to light and save her sister.

This one sounds good. I've heard good things about the author and I love the cover. Plus the summary really makes you wonder why Lizzie stopped speaking and why Hope is the only one to help.


The Midnight Twins by Jacquelyn Mitchard

Meredith and Mallory Brynn are mirror twins born on either side of midnight one snowy New Y ear’s Eve. They have always been inseparable. But after they are nearly killed in a mysterious fire on their thirteenth birthday, the bond that has always joined them unravels. They begin to have visions and dreams that reveal the deep secrets kept by the people around them. Meredith and Mallory realize they have each been given a gift: Mallory can see deep into the past; Meredith can see the future. But when they discover that one boy is not what they imagined, their lives will be changed forever. If they can survive . . .

Maybe this sounds crazy but I've never heard of this author before. But I love the synopsis of this book and I can't wait to read it. I really want to know whats going to happen to the girls!
