We’re always looking for that next great read and we’d love to know what books ya’ll read over the weekend! Here’s what’s on our night stands (and keeping us up way past our bedtimes) at the Book Hookup….

Celeste: I am reading Forbidden by Syrie James and Ryan M. James. *sigh* I just adore books about Angels. Claire Brennan and her mother have always moved around but Claire has no idea why. One day she starts getting psychic visions but doesn’t tell her mother for fear of moving again. Soon she crosses paths with the gorgeous, Scottish, and introverted Alec. I’m just at the point where Claire knows what she is and what Alec is, and I think the action and the romance are just about to heat up. Stay tuned for my full review!

Ana:  Although I didn’t have much time to read this weekend I tried as best I could to sneak away to read of few pages of Cinder by Marissa Meyer.  Its a very interesting take on the Cinderella story we’ve all grown up with.  Cinder is a mechanic…and she’s a cyborg.  Unfortunately, cyborgs are second class citizens. I’m not very far along but even though she’s just met Prince Kai I’m imagining that he’ll play a large part in this book.  Because it is based on  a very recognizable story, we all know (or think we know) what’s coming next.  After all, Cinder comes equipped with an evil guardian and “step-sisters” but it also comes with a plague and hovercrafts….what’s not to love?!?!

Jag: Oh man, I have been pwned this past week by the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost. I’m now on the third book in the series, At Grave’s End and loooooving them.  They keep getting better and better.  They’re smart and sexy and the main character Cat, is kick ass.  I can’t wait to get these reviewed.  I haven’t been hooked on a series like this in a long long time. (mature audience recommended)
