Friday Memes: Poison Princess by Kresley Cole

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I chose Poison Princess by Kresley Cole from my TBR Mountain. I have had this book since October of 2012. Here is the description:
#1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole introduces The Arcana Chronicles, post-apocalyptic tales filled with riveting action, the dark mysticism of Tarot cards, and breathtaking romance.

She could save the world—or destroy it.

Sixteen year old Evangeline “Evie” Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future—and they’re still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux.

But she can’t do either alone.

With his mile-long rap sheet, wicked grin, and bad attitude, Jack is like no boy Evie has ever known. Even though he once scorned her and everything she represented, he agrees to protect Evie on her quest. She knows she can’t totally depend on Jack. If he ever cast that wicked grin her way, could she possibly resist him?

Who can Evie trust?

As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of twenty-two teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it’s not always clear who is on which side….
Beginning:
She's so lovely, so fragile. Those haunted eyes. Those rosebud lips...they'll scream so prettily.
Friday 56:
When Brand dropped me off at my house after school, he parked out of view of the kitchen window. "Is everything all right, Eves?" He drummed his fingers on the stick shift. "You've been acting weird ever since you got back."

  1. Thankfully the beginning isn't scary at all! Imagine someone thinking that about you! The F56 definitely makes me think something suspicious is up! I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for sharing :)
