It's so nice not to be reading another of Cameron Jace's works that's NOT The Grimm Diaries or The Grimm Diaries Prequels. Pentimento is a dystopian retelling of Beauty and the Beast, it's a stand alone with a cliffhanger, and I finished it within hours of starting it.

I apparently have books 2-4 from the Dusk Gate Chronicles back when Libboo was still open, and I got Seeds of Discovery when it was free on Amazon, which I believe it still is. The idea of a girl coming across an accident in which a boy disappears into thin air and then she manages to go into a different world after weeks of trying to figure out what he was up to was intriguing.

Title: Crossing the Ice (Ice #1)
Author: Jennifer Comeaux
Links: Goodreads | Amazon
Publication Date: August 3, 2014
Falling hard never felt so good.
Pair skaters Courtney and Mark have one shot left at their Olympic dream. They vow not to let anything get in their way, especially not Josh and Stephanie, the wealthy and talented brother and sister team.
The heart doesn’t always listen to reason, though...
The more time Courtney spends with sweet, shy Josh, the harder she falls for him. But they are on opposite sides of the competition, and their futures are headed in opposite directions. Will their friendship blossom into more or are their paths too different to cross?
I don't know the precise reason why I actually requested The Summoning in the first place. I do know that I must have been really intrigued by the idea of a retelling of Bloody Mary and maybe just wanted a break from the influx of YA books that have some type of romance running about. Or, I just wanted to measure Hillary Monahan's debut novel with a scare-a-meter.

I first came across Gilded somewhere on the Internet – I don't even remember where, but I didn't really bother reading the synopsis. The second time I came across Gilded, over at Fiction Freak, I paid more attention to the synopsis and to find out Christina Farley's debut novel was based off of Korean mythology? I was extremely ecstatic, and I was NOT the only one. Both Kahlan and I were extremely disappointed to find that Gilded wasn't at the local library (NOOOOOOOO).
