In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she finds herself struggling to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch--a former Alchemist who escaped against all odds, and is now on the run. Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as she searches for an evil magic user targeting powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood--or else she might be next.
Okay, you guys are probably thinking 'what on earth is Mia on about?' How can there possibly be a downside to reading ARC's, right? Am I in the right state of mind? Yes, I am feeling perfectly fine and I am going to answer all those questions. We bloggers adore, love and cherish every.single. ARC we acquire and frickin have a little happy dance every time we get one but hey I am a very picky person. Apparently, this is where pickiness gets me- some good ol' PRO's and CON's list making.
I admit! This was just for a little bit of fun. I just wanted to see how many CONs I can actually think of. But as you can see I was completely unsuccessful as with the very small number of 4 petty downsides. And in relation to the PROs, you and I both know there are waaaaayy more than 4. So, it just shows that there aren't many CON's... or are there?

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week bloggers all over the blogosphere create a top ten list based on that week's theme. This weeks theme is our Top Ten favorite characters in whatever genre we choose. And I chose New Adult! Okay, it may not be classed as a genre rather like an age category I suppose? But whatever idc I'm too excited :D In no particular order...
Okay okay, I admit I haven't read many New Adult books. Heck, I haven't had time to read many books at that. But yup there's my seven! What do you think? If you have any NA recommendations please do let me know in the comments :D
Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can’t keep a secret
Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed.
Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she’s ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.
But there’s strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she’s done. If only she can forgive herself.
