A Million Worlds with You by Claudia Gray
Goodreads Blurb:A million universes. A million dangers. One destiny.

The fate of the multiverse rests in Marguerite Caine’s hands. Marguerite has been at the center of a cross-dimensional feud since she first traveled to another universe using her parents’ invention, the Firebird. Only now has she learned the true plans of the evil Triad Corporation—and that those plans could spell doom for dozens or hundreds of universes, each facing total annihilation.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Interview with a Rockstar!

Hi everyone. Since today is Thanksgiving, I wanted to give back to all of the readers out there who are a fan. Books are my passion and I am so fortunate that I have the opertunity to turn this passion into a career. Never give up on want you went. With that said let me introduce the Rockstar that I will be interviewing.  He is a drummer and in this little band called Blush. Can you guess who it is?  That's right  it is Trace Styx!

Leah: Thank you for taking time out of you day for this interview.
Trace: The pleasure is all mine
*Such a flirt*
Leah:Out of all the instruments, what led you to like drums the best? If you could pick any other
instrument to play what would it be?

Trace: When I was little, I was always banging on pots and pans with wooden spoons. My mom thought           it helped me get out my aggression or anger, so she got me my first drum set. The rest is history, as they say.  Other instrument… well, I can play the piano/keyboards. I guess I'd like to learn to p…

Our Dark Duet (Monsters of Verity #2) by V.E. Schwab
Goodreads Blurb: THE WORLD IS BREAKING. AND SO ARE THEY.

KATE HARKER isn't afraid of monsters. She hunts them. And she's good at it.

AUGUST FLYNN once yearned to be human. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost.

THE WAR HAS BEGUN.

THE MONSTERS ARE WINNING.

Kate will have to return to Verity. August will have to let her back in. And a new monster is waiting—one that feeds on chaos and brings out its victims' inner demons.

Which will be harder to conquer: the monsters they face, or the monsters within?
My Thoughts: After the cliff hanger from the first book I had to get my hands on this one. The story starts off months after book 1 and the main characters Kate and August are in completely different places than I thought they would be. Kate is battling her inner monsters and fighting monster in the city. August is working more hand-in-hand with Flynn’s group. The biggest shocked of the book is the endi…

One night, one kiss sets fate in motion, and neither Hattie, nor Johnny, can deny that their lives have been forever changed. Time and distance stand between them, but a chance encounter shatters their ability to resist each other any longer.

It's not long before Hattie realizes that fantasies are named thus for a reason, while Johnny learns that the innocence of a sweet girl is no match against his hardened heart.

Yet, inexperienced as she may be, Hattie knows one thing for sure. If she doesn't take a chance with this rough and rugged man, she'll never know if dreams really can come true.

A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2) by V.E. Schwab
Goodreads Blurb: It has been four months since a mysterious obsidian stone fell into Kell's possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Prince Rhy was wounded, and since the nefarious Dane twins of White London fell, and four months since the stone was cast with Holland's dying body through the rift--back into Black London.

Now, restless after having given up his smuggling habit, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks as she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games--an extravagant international competition of magic meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries--a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

And while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to …

Blurb: Anne Dowling becomes entangled in a web of secrets involving a missing student and a conspiracy at Wheatley Prep in this fast-paced, juicy follow-up to Prep School Confidential

Anne Dowling—a fresh, original, and funny new YA heroine whose knowing, irreverent voice will remind readers of Pretty Little Liars and Private—is back for her second semester at Wheatley Prep. Although things have settled (somewhat) since her roommate Isabella’s death, Anne's still kind of obsessed with the disappearance of Wheatley student Matthew Weaver thirty years ago, since she found a picture of him and his crewmates with the words “they killed him” scrawled on the back among Isabella’s things.

When Anne learns that her boyfriend Brent’s dad is one of the now-powerful Wheatley alumni who rowed crew with Matthew, and that the crew team continues to induct new members with a creepy-sounding ritual called “The Drop,” she knows further investigation could put her relationship with Brent in danger.

Most days it feels like her best friend, Henry Prince, is the only one in her corner…though with his endless flirty jokes, how can she ever take him seriously?
