Memory Lane Monday: My Soul To Take by Rachel Vincent


Yes, it is that time of the week. The day we dread and wish would never come- Mondays. *Wipes tear* But have no fear, Memory Lane Monday is here! Every Monday, here at TheYABookworm, I'll do a special post called Memory Lane Monday. What's that you ask? Memory Lane Monday is a once-a-week post where I (or any other bloggers that wish to participate)  choose one book that I've previously read to be featured on that day. From the book chosen, I will pick two of my favourite quotes and write a little blurb containing my quick thoughts on the book. The books that I choose will not be books I've reviewed- since I've read so many books, I want to share with you my opinions on ones that I won't get the chance to fully review (because seriously, rereading dozens of books would take a year...or two)! Be sure to participate by leaving your "Memory Lane Monday" in the comments, or a link to your blog post with the hash-tag #YAMemoryLaneMonday on twitter :D

This Week's Memory Lane Monday...
My Soul To Take By: Rachel Vincent



SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH KAYLEE CAVANAUGH...
She doesn't see dead people, but she senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.

Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about the need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next...




Top Two Favourite Quotes...

#1 “His name's Nash."
Aunt Val took a butter knife from the silverware drawer. "What year is he?"
I groaned inwardly. "Senior." ...here we go ...
Her smile was a little too enthusiastic. "Well that's wonderful!"
Of course, what she really meant was "Rise from the shadows, social leper, and walk in the bright light of acceptance!” 


#2 “Did he show himself?” Nash asked, and I glanced to my right to see him staring at my father, as fascinated as I was.
My dad nodded. “He was an arrogant little demon.”
“So what happened?” I asked.
“I punched him.”
For a moment, we stared at him in silence. “You punched the reaper?” I asked, and my hand fell from the strainer onto the edge of the sink.
“Yeah.” He chuckled at the memory, and his grin brought out one of my own. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d seen my father smile. “Broke his nose.” 


   My Soul To Take is the first instalment in the Soul Screamers series by author Rachel Vincent. I chose to feature this book today because I honestly think if you haven't read this series yet, you must! In My Soul To Take we get introduced to Kaylee- a confused teenager who screams whenever someone around her is about to die. Why? ....Kaylee has no idea.....

   In addition to Kaylee's discovery on what she really is, a romance emerges between Kaylee and Mr.Hottie Nash Hudson *giggles* I fell completely head over heals for this couple- their chemistry burns up the page! My Soul To Take also contains a good amount of comedy that will literally have you laughing out loud =D

   My Soul To Take is a must read in my opinion- not only is it a great novel, but the series gets SO good as it progresses (Before I Wake Soul Screamers #6 was friggen fantastical)! Have you read My Soul To Take yet? If you have, what were your thoughts on the first Soul Screamers book? Let me know in the comments! Keep Reading!

Your Y.A. Bookworm,
