Need by Carrie Jones

Zara collects phobias the way other girls collect Facebook friends. Little wonder, since life’s been pretty rough so far. Her father left, her stepfather just died, and her mother’s pretty much checked out. Now Zara’s living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays “safe.” Zara doesn’t think she’s in danger; she thinks her mother can’t deal.
Wrong. Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isn’t a figment of her imagination. He’s a pixie—and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He’s the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And he’s trailing Zara.

With suspense, romance, and paranormal themes, this exciting breakout novel has readers rapidly turning the pages.

My best friend Jenna let me borrow this book and to be honest, at first I was kind of ify about it. You see, Jenna has this HUGE set of books in her bookcases (Yes, she has THREE bookcases) with LOTS of amazing books to choose from. She handed me this book and I didn't think it compared to all the others. I wanted to read something amazing, a book I would stay up all night reading. I didn't even know what the book was about and still didn't really want to read BUT Jenna let me take it home and I read it.

Well boy was I WRONG! I cannot believe I almost passed this book up!! Im SO glad Jenna gave me this one to read. And I did stay up all night till it was finished :) You see? She IS my best friend for a reason :D Lol just kidding Jenna!! But seriously, she ALWAYS picks the right books for me. She knows how much I love paranormal romances :D

I love Zara's character. She kind of reminded me of ME. Zara is a runner and by the looks of it, a pretty darn good one. I don't like to brag or anything but I'm a pretty good runner too :D LOL well I also love to run on my own in the neighborhood just like Zara. And the way Zara thinks throughout the book is what I would have thought and done. I wouldn't have been scared to be sweaty next to a cute guy and try to outrun him!! plus she's stubborn, which I am very much so. But I'm not as sarcastic as her and I would probably be too shy to say some of the things she said. But when it comes to sports with guys, I'm never shy :P

I also absolutley LOVE Nick!! This book made me love Werewolves even MORE!! In my imagination he is HOT. I love the way he is super protected over Zara. How he thinks he can accomplish things on his own when he obviously needs helped. If anything goes wrong, he trys so hard to make things right again. I know this might sound odd, but I love how he gets mad so easily and jealous even when he's hurt, he still manages to get mad at Zara for doing something that could put her in danger. I guess I think its cute lol. And just when I thought he couldn't get even more perfect, I learn he NEVER had a girlfriend before! Therefore, He has NEVER kissed a girl! Can you believe that? Zara is so FREAKING LUCKY!

And then there is Devyn and Issie. Two people obviously ment for each other!! I think Devyn is SO sweet to Issie. He is always making her laugh. She seems so happy when she is with him.

I cannot wait to read the next book! Capitivate.
So I'm gonna rate this book a...

Because there was a HOT Werewolf :)
Romance is always a plus in my book
And I didn't stop reading it until it was finished
Carrie Jones did a very awesome job in her style of writing
I also LOVE the cover

I hope you guys decide to check the book out and tell me what YOU though :)
Oh, and I forgot to mention one more thing

You're welcome.

So guess what's been happening to me lately? First, my car got broken in to (they smashed in the passenger window, so I had to buy another one). Then, my computer got a virus, so I had to take it into Best Buy and have them fix it for $200. Its still not fixed, and its been over a week. (I'm on Shawna's computer)

Plus, I haven't even started my summer homework.

Anyway, how are you? :P

You should come over tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday) and hang out with me. I'm watching Kellie and she'd love to see you. And you'd finally be able to watch that last episode of American Dreams.

Anyways, I know this is long enough, but HOW COULD YOU DOUBT A BOOK I CHOSE FOR YOU???? I know the books you like to read better than anyone else. That hurts me so much, you wouldn't even understand.

Oh, and if you come over tomorrow, I have a book for you to borrow. That's all I'm going to say. Oh, and it's paranormal romance. And it's by an author you like. Oh and it doesn't come out until next month.

OK BYE! Text me in the morning after you've read this!
