For review: 
 


Release Date: February 8, 2011
Interests: This book sounds really intriguing and the cover is stunning. Also, it's about the Salem Witch Trials! I've also been fascinated with the history of the Witch Trials. I love me some witches. 
 
Truth or Lies?

Lidda knew, with a clarity that was like a candle in a dark room, that all had changed; something was loosed in the village—Devil or not—and they would pay for it, every last man, woman, and child.
Fourteen-year-old Lidda has always known she was different. She longs to escape Salem Village and its stifling rules—to be free to dance, to sing, to live as she chooses. But when a plague of accusations descends on the village and witch fever erupts, L idda begins to realize that she feels and sees things that others can't, or won't. But how will she expose the truth without being hung as a witch herself?
Gripping and emotional, Ann Turner's retelling of the Salem witch trials captures one girl's brave soul-searching amidst a backdrop of fear and blame.  
(Summary from Goodreads.) 
Special thanks to HarperTeen for sending this to me to review for an honest opinion.

  2. This sounds awesome! I can't wait to hear what you think about it. Thanks for checking out my latest review. I know I didn't give it a great review, but I really do think it could have been a better read for me if I had read the previous books in the series. I've had good luck with series so far, where I can start on book 10 and still get enough background to fully enjoy the book. This book gave only bare minimal background information, so I felt lost most of the time. So if you do decide to read them, most definitely start with book 1. Also glad I found another House fan! It seems like they have marathons on all of the time lately so I've been watching it a LOT...such an amazing show and hilarious! I'm glad that you had a chance to go to Bakerella's website; if you even halfway like to bake she has some seriously creative stuff on there. Especially check out the cake pops (they're my fave to make!)
