A Few More Reviews.

Here's two more reviews. [:

Title: Masquarade
Author: Melissa de la Cruz

Summary: Schuyler Van Alen wants an explanation for the mysterious deaths of young Blue Bloods. Her search brings her to Venice, Italy, in the hopes of finding the one person who can help. Meanwhile, back in New York, preparations are feverishly underway for the famous Four Hundred Ball, an exclusive gala hosted by the city’s wealthy, powerful, and unhuman -- a true Blue Blood affair. But it’s at the after-party masquerade that the true danger lurks. Hidden behind the masks is a revelation that will change the course of a young vampire’s destiny.

Rich with glamour, attitude, and vampire lore, this second installment in the Blue Bloods saga will leave readers thirsty for more.

Review: I fell in love with Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Blood series right off the bat from the first chapter of Blue Bloods. This second installment was just as good, if not better. More mysteries are coming up with the Blue Bloods, and definetly a bunch more dealing with the Silver Bloods. It gets even better when the Council figures out that a Blue Blood is harboring the Silver Bloods - their enemy, who could kill them all. Who could it be?


Title: Cross My Heart and Hope To Spy
Author: Ally Carter

Summary: After staking out, obtaining, and then being forced to give up her first boyfriend, Josh, all Cammie Morgan wants is a peaceful semester. But that's easier said than done when you're a CIA legacy and go to the premier school in the world...for spies.

Cammie may have a genius IQ , but there are still a lot of things she doesn't know. Like, will her ex-boyfriend even remember she exists? And how much trouble is she really in after what happened last semester? And most of all, why is her mother acting so strangely?

Despite Cammie's best intentions to be a normal student, danger seems to follow her. She and her best friends learn that their school is going to play host to some mysterious guests--code name: "Blackthorne. Then she's blamed for a security breach that leaves the school's top-secret status at risk.

Soon Cammie and her friends are crawling through walls and surveilling the school to learn the truth about Blackthorne and clear Cammie's name. Even though they have confidence in their spy skills, this time the targets are tougher (and hotter), and the stakes for Cammie's heart--and her beloved school--are higher than ever.

Review: This is the second book in the Gallager Girls series, and I think it was better than the first! Instead of having a guy who lives in the city and doesn't know about the spys, you have guys who live with them and who are also spies. Cammie doesn't want to be blamed for the security breach, so her and her friends decide to clear her name. Are these new guys trustworthy?

je t'amie.
hope.
