For review:  



Out for Blood  (Drake Chronicles #3) by Alyxandra Harvey.
The third instalment in Alyxandra Harvey's Drake Chronicles. I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next.

Rules of Attraction (Perfect Chemistry #2) by Simone Elkeles.
I LOVED Perfect Chemistry. Can't wait to read this one!

The Back Door of Midnight (Dark Secrets #3) by Elizabeth Chandler.
I haven't read the first two books in this series, although I do like the sound of them. If anyone has read this series, let me know what you think!

Reading now:



When Sky catches a glimpse of Zed for the first time, lounging against his motorbike at school, she is drawn to him just like every other girl in Wickenridge. But Zed sees something special in her that the other girls don't have. Zed tells her they are both Savants - people with special powers like telepathy and the ability to see into the future. Not only that, she is a Savant too, and his soulfinder - meant to be together.

When a soulfinder speaks telepathically to her partner, it's like all the lights coming on in a building. You lit me up like Vegas. But for Sky it's just not that easy - she's a mystery to herself, haunted by nightmares from her past before she was adopted, and riddled with doubt and insecurity. Just when Sky is slowly coming round to the idea of being with Zed she is kidnapped by a family of criminal Savants. In a chilling twist, Sky and Zed's relationship is put to the ultimate test and the fate of those she loves lie in Sky's hands. Will Sky have the strength to embrace her power and be brave enough to control her own destiny, or will the dark demons of her past prevent her from realising her true potential?
