Release Date: October 12, 2010
Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where a curse has marked Lena’s family of powerful Supernaturals for generations. A Gatlin where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen.Sometimes life-ending.
Together Ethan and Lena can face anything Gatlin throws at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, keeping secrets that test their relationship. And now that Ethan’s eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there’s on going back. Haunted by strange visions only he can see, Ethan is pulled deeper into his town’s tangled history and finds himself caught up in the dangerous network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, where nothing is as it seems.

The Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View every week. It works a lot like the Book Blogger Hop except that it's only on Fridays. I haven't been taking part in this hop as long but I've found a lot of great new blogs through this one too.
THIS WEEK'S QUESION:
WHAT IS YOUR READING SUGGESTION THIS WEEK?
That's a very good question. I would say Nevermore by Kelly Creagh. I just finished it last weekend and it was absolutely amazing. It's pretty long but it doesn't drag on at all.
I am back home and this weekend I will be participating and holding a mini-challenge for Lesley of YA Books Reviewed's Halloween Read-a-Thon. Basically I will be reading all weekend, not that it's much different from what I do most weekends. Other than that school has slowed down a bit now that we've moved past the middle of the semester but things will probably pick up again in a few weeks. I'll just enjoy if for now!
ALSO DON'T FORGET TO ENTER MY 150 FOLLOWER GIVEAWAY! FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION HERE.
