Hallowed by Cynthia Hand

Clara didn't fulfill her purpose and now she has no clue what that means or what will happen. She's in love with Tucker and can't imagine giving him up, but realizes Christian plays a huge part in her future. She struggles with making the right choices and fighting her destiny. When she discovers her mom is dying then everything changes.

When I read Unearthly, I thought it was okay. Didn't love it, didn't dislike it but just thought it was so so. I had a hard time remembered what had happened in that book when I started this one. I really enjoyed this one much more. I was rooting for Christian the whole time. He understands Clara, has so much in common and of course he is her destiny. Tucker can never understand her angel side. I felt bad for him because she was pushing him away but he had no idea how to realate.

The suprise for me was finding out about Jeremy's purpose. Didn't know he had one because they never wrote from his perspective just showed that he was acting strange.

Overall this was a great book!

The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen

This is the second book by this author that I have read and loved every minute of it. I love how Allen's books have a little bit of magic in them. In this particular story, a girl comes to her mom's hometown, not knowing the damage her mom caused when she was a teenager. She is drawn to a boy who she has been told to stay away from but doesn't know why. I enjoyed the character development and the relationship between the girl and her neighbor, grandfather and of course her love interest.

Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey

This story is set in the time of the witch hunts, with a little fantasy (dragons) thrown in. People are banned from going into Dragonswood, but several girls do. They are seen and thought to be witches.

The story was so so. I read it because I wanted to see how the dragon thing played out but it was a slow read, picked up towards the end but definitely not my style or genre.
