Requiem (Delirium, #3)
From Goodreads: 
Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has been transformed. The nascent rebellion that was under way in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. Of Pandemonium, ALA Booklist noted that “like all successful second volumes, this expands the world and ups the stakes, setting us up for the big finale.”

After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven—pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators now infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels, and as Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fianc√© of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. The two girls live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

I have no doubt this book will gut me the way Delirium and Pandemonium did. *cries*  I'm looking forward to seeing how it all ends and especially how Lena handles her feelings for Julian with what transpired in the final pages of book 2. O_O

What's your W.O.W.?


  1. Hmmm, this is the first time I've read the blurb. Both Hana and Lena's POV? sounds torturous! Have you read the Hana short story?

  2. Yes, I have read it. :) I'm so torn between the you-know-who's I'm not sure how that will resolve itself. :/

  3. Can you even believe I still haven't read Delirium?! It's sitting on my bookshelf, staring at me, looking oh-so-interesting, and still I just can't seem to get to it. Ugh, I wish I could quit my job and just read all day instead. :)

  4. I am dying to see how this series ends, and I can't wait to have Hanna and Lena's stories intertwine. Great choice!

  5. Whoa -- I didn't know Hana is back in this one. LOVE her. And yeah, that cliffhanger in Pandemonium. I agree with Jen (above).

    Come check out my WoW pick!

  6. I didn't read the synopsis because I haven't read Pandemonium yet. I'm waiting for it to be available in the library because I'm too cheap to buy it, haha! Great pick, though! I can't wait to read this one, too. You know, after I read the second one... Check out my WoW!

    1. Oh, and I love the name of your blog, by the way! Super cute :)

  7. I haven't read any of the previous books in the series so I'm not familiar with it but this one sounds great and I would love to read the rest. Great pick!
    Come check out my WOW post.

  8. I still haven't read Pandemonium and I really need to get on that... great pick!!!

  9. I think I would give a limb or perhaps a kidney for a copy of this book. LOL It is one of my favorite series and I can't wait to find out how it ends! Great pick! :)

    My W.O.W.

    1. If I were giving out prizes for the best/funniest comment you would win! ;D I know EXACTLY how you feel!

  10. I still haven't read Delirium or Pandemonium yet. They are both sitting on my bookshelf looking lonely. I need to catch up!

  11. AAHHHH!!! *jumps up and down* I still have to read the second book... I know, I know, I need to read it!

    Great Pick!

BLOG TOUR + BAKING WITH ROTH & ZAYNE: Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes! This is my stop on the Stone Cold Touch tour and you're in for a treat because Roth and Zayne stopped by to make cupcakes for Layla. More on that in a minute. 

 ~ About the Book ~
Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden.  Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what …

BLOG TOUR: Frazzled by Booki Vivat (GUEST POST + GIVEAWAY)

Meet Abbie Wu! She’s about to start middle school and she’s totally in crisis.

Abbie Wu is in crisis—and not just because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because the lunch ladies at school are totally corrupt or because everyone seems to have a “Thing” except her. Abbie Wu is in crisis always.

Heavily illustrated and embarrassingly honest, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is, where she belongs, and how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up. With Abbie’s flair for the dramatic and natural tendency to freak out, middle school has never seemed so nerve-racking!

Packed with hilarious black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout, Frazzled takes readers through Abbie Wu’s hysterical middle school adventures.

Thanks for stopping by, there be cupcakes here today! *whispers* Really creepy cupcakes.
If you have followed this blog or my Instagram or Pinterest board for any length of time, you've probably seen some of the bookish cupcake creations I've made over the past few years. Book inspired cupcakes, characters as cupcake flavors, release party cupcakes, that sort of thing.Making cupcakes for people makes me happy. 
However, of all the different kinds of cupcakes I have been asked to make, today's definitely take the cake--or the cupcakes--or the finger.  Wait. What?  Stay with me, I'll explain. 
But first...
