Crossed by Ally Condie

Goodreads Summary
The hotly awaited second book in the dystopian Matched trilogy: In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake. Cassia's quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander - who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia's heart - change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever

The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine

I just finished reading book #11 in this series Last Breath which is the latest release (I only included the image of #12, Black Dawn so that there wouldn't be a big blank space in the picture above! But I look forward to reading that one when it comes out)

I started this series based on the recommendation of a friend. I do love a good vampire story but I didn't have the highest of hopes. After reading the first book I thought that the story seemed interesting enough to continue the series, but I didn't know how far in I would follow. Well, I obviously have stuck with it all this far and am eager to read any more releases to come in this series! I heard that the author has signed on to write up to book 15 which would give us three more books than the ones pictured above.

What I love about this series, are the great characters on both the human and vampire side of things. I love the residents of the Glass House, and I really love Myrnin. I love the humor in the books and the moments where I am laughing. All of these books are fast, easy reads and I know the level at which I will be entertained every time I've decided that it was time to read the next Morganville Vampire book.

Last Breath was not a disappointment in any of what i have come to expect. I liked that this book took a few twists and turns in a direction from where the books usually go. There was a few different narratives used in the story, and tragedy hits even closer to home than in past books... and as per usual, this one ends in a bit of a cliffhanger, but not in a painful way. So I am grateful for that!

I could totally see this as a television series, and I would watch every episode!
