Book Haul!

I actually got these books in February and I did post a video of me hauling these books on Youtube, but I totally forgot to do it on my blog so here is my very very late book haul! haha (I get points for remembering right ?)

Also I got all of these from The Book Depository: http://www.bookdepository.com/

I got these(BTW if you click on the names of the books, the link will take you to the Goodreads page):
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi - I wasn't interested in this trilogy at first but then I saw Whittynovels (Booktuber) Rave about this trilogy and something in me was like ok you need to read this trilogy, you just need to ( maybe she hypnotized me lol), So I got them and I read them, and oh my lord I loved them!! (I have read Ignite me but I don't own the physical copy, I will buy it soon though!)
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi -Usually I don't like buying more than one book in a series because it would suck if I didn't like the first and didn't want to continue reading the series(trilogy,saga) and I had all the books, but I had a feeling I would love this trilogy and I totally did!, thank god! haha

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer - I owned the first book ( I bought it a long time ago in Croatia, and I wanted to own all the books before I started reading them so I got the second and the third too.) I had to wait 5 weeks or much more for this one!, I have no idea why this book took so long to get to me because I got the other ones quickly, maybe they lost it and didn't find it right away or something, I am so glad that I have it now.
Cress by Marissa Meyer - I really need to start reading this series, I am so excited to start! haha, and hopefully I'll enjoy it because well I own all three books that are out right now.

Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - I already started reading this book and I am enjoying it very much so far!, I am so happy that I chose this one to get!.

Me and Earl and the Dying girl by Jesse Andrews - I heard so many Booktubers rave about this book, and I decided to get it, and so far I haven't been in the mood to read it but hopefully soon!.

                                                                                         

And I am VERY happy to report that all three books are the same height and edition!, I was so afraid that they might be different heights or editions when i ordered them, but thankfully they are the same.
Have you read any of these book ? 
Did you enjoy them ?
Are you Interested in reading any of them ?

Book Blitz+Giveaway - Bound by Lies by Hanna Peach

Book Title: Bound by Lies (Bound #1)
Author: Hanna Peach
Publication date: January 21st 2014
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Synopsis: Our love is on his terms. He contacts me only through notes − unpredictable and untraceable. When we meet, he can touch me, but I’m not allowed to touch him. When we make love, it’s only after I have been bound and blindfolded. It’s the only time I truly feel alive. Which is why I play along with it. For now.

Caden Thaine is the most sinfully beautiful man I have ever seen. But more than that, his touch sets me on fire. And dear God, do I ache for him. I don’t know where he lives or even what he does. But this doesn’t scare me. My only fear is that one day his messages will stop. I know he’s hiding something. But that’s okay. I am hiding things, too. Like my real name and... who I really am. But the deeper I fall for him, the stronger my curiosity grows.

I could never have imagined just how much our lives are bound. And that pulling at his tangled web of secrets would cause my own dark past to come back to try and reclaim me. Will we survive? Will our love?

Adult romantic suspense. +18 years.

Interview with Author:
Q: Firstly, who is the real life Caden and can I get his number? ;)
A: haha, get in line ;) But seriously, Caden isn’t really based on anyone I know (damn).

Q: So, was Caden your favorite character to write?
A: Actually, I loved writing Mick, Kitten’s kickboxing coach. He’s gruff and swears a lot but he’s soft on the inside. I had fun coming up with creative insults for him.

Q: Did you expect the reaction that you got from the book?
A: I knew that this would be the kind of book that people would either love or hate. I didn’t expect that people would be as passionate as they are about which side of the fence they stand on! But I think this is a good thing. I was told by my old writing mentor, “the worst thing for your reader to feel is apathy.” So yes, hate the book or love it, I’m glad it makes you feel something.

Q: Speaking of reactions, what did your dad think about Bound by Lies? (Did you end up letting him read it? Haha)
A: Oh God. Let’s get one thing straight: I didn’t let my dad read Bound. He bought the book and started reading it even after I told him not to. The conversation on how I found out went something like this:
Dad: So I bought your new book, Bound by Lies.
Hanna: WHAT?
Dad: I started reading it.
Hanna: OMG NO YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO READ THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dad: Wow... It's a little hot.
Hanna: *jumps out of window*
I refused to continue that conversation with him. I really really don’t need to know what he thinks about all this… I can always deny I wrote it, right?

Q: So if you didn’t want your family reading it, why did you choose to write under your real name?
A: I did consider a pen name but in the end I decided not to. I think that part of my purpose as a writer is to express myself as openly and as truthfully as possible. The reason behind why I was considering a pen name is because of how I thought people would judge me based on the kind of book Bound by Lies is. I joke about not wanting my family or friends to read the novel but really, it doesn’t bother me.

Q: And Jacob *shudders*… what part of him is the “truth”?
A: I had an ex-boyfriend who I used as a basis for developing Jacob’s character; the possessiveness, the jealousy, the sex and even some of the things that Jacob would say to Kitten were exact things that he would say to me. Thankfully I left before my situation escalated into physical violence. But there are a lot of women who don’t and unfortunately I’ve known some. I think part of the reason is that we don’t recognize the signs. That’s why I’m not going to hide my experience from the world. Silence only helps to allow these kinds of abusive relationships to continue. Something I share might help someone else recognize a bad situation before it does escalate.

Q: Whoa. Ok. Let’s end with a nice light question then. If your book was made into a movie who would you pick as your cast?
A: Well, I can’t talk about Kitten because she hasn’t revealed what she looks like (for her own safety, you know)… but Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo from TV series Game of Thrones) is what I imagine Caden to look like. *wipes drool off chin*

Bookblitz+Giveaway Burning Down the House by Allie Gail

Book Title: Burning Down the House
Author: Allie Gail
Publication date: March 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

Synopsis: This book contains strong language and sexual content and is intended for ages 17+.

Rob Kensington is just your typical high school senior. Athletic, intelligent, handsome. Sees a therapist once a week. Because his parents just died in a house fire of questionable origin. And he doesn’t seem to care.
Maybe he isn’t so typical.

Sara Marsh had no clue when she returned to live with her divorced father that the bedroom down the hall would be occupied by a stray with a major attitude problem. The last time she saw Rob, he was a brooding goth who could have passed as Marilyn Manson’s love child. But at some point during her three years away, Creepy Kensington managed to evolve into a sizzling hot star running back with smoldering hazel eyes.

The attraction is undeniable. The temptation is irresistible. And soon they’re sharing more than just an address. But with another life lost in a deliberately set blaze, Sara’s trust is faltering. Has she lost her heart to a serial arsonist? He’s already shown her the allure of playing with fire.

And someone’s about to get burned.

Excerpt:
“Sara…” He rubbed his forehead like he was developing a headache. “I don’t want your dad worrying about us.”
“Why would he worry about us?”
“He should be worrying. If he knew the thoughts that have been running through my mind lately, he’d be really worried.” He looked over at me but I couldn’t make out his expression in the darkness. “It’s bad enough trying to sleep at night knowing you’re right down the hall from me. You’re so close, sometimes it’s really hard not to…” He gave his head a shake. “Your father has done way too much for me. I owe him a lot. I really don’t think the ideal way for me to express my appreciation is by seducing his daughter. You get what I’m saying?”
Oh. Oh, wow. So he’d been having the naughty thoughts, too. “Yeah. I get what you’re saying.” Sure, I got it - I just really, really didn’t like it.
“I knew I shouldn’t have kissed you. I think I just made things a hundred times harder.” One hand reached down to adjust his pants. “In more ways than one.”
I tried not to smile, but come on. There’s just something about knowing you have that much of an effect on someone. I couldn’t help teasing him a bit. “Eight or nine times a day, huh?”
“I was kidding. Although I may break a personal record tonight. We’ll see.”
“I don’t know how you expect me to sleep knowing you’re in the next room doing that.”
“Well…you could do it too, you know.” His voice softened to almost a whisper, and he leaned in a little closer to me. “It’s a good way to relieve tension. I think you should try it. Oh, yeah…I like that idea. I like it a lot. You touching yourself while thinking about me…now that is one very sexy image.”
I felt like all the air had just been sucked from my lungs. My fingers couldn’t lie still; they clenched the purple chiffon over my thighs as I pressed them tightly together. I swallowed, not trusting myself to speak.
“What if I told you that you’re who I picture when I’m getting myself off? Would that freak you out?”
Oh, holy fuck… “No.” The word came out sounding unintentionally throaty.
“It doesn’t bother you?”
“No. Should it?”
“I don’t know. I’m glad it doesn’t. I seem to be doing it a lot more since I got a look at you naked in the bathtub.”
I was glad the night prevented him from seeing how flushed I’d become. My left hand reached for the heater to turn it off.
“It did suddenly get hot in here, didn’t it?” He laughed softly.
“Yes. It did.” So hot.
“I think we better call it a night now. Is that okay?”
“If you…uh, mm-hm. Sure.” Great. I’d always wanted to find a guy with principles and look what it got me. A heart arrhythmia and damp panties.

Book Blitz+Giveaway - Lost by Layla Hagen

Book Title: Lost (Lost in Us #0.5)
Author: Layla Hagen
Publication date: March 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:  **Lost is a prequel novella to Lost in Us and can be read before or after. **

Whatever might help him forget his past and numb the pain, James has tried it all: booze, car races, fights, and then some. Especially women. College offers plenty of opportunities for everything. . . Especially when you have a trust fund to spend.

Serena spirals deeper and deeper into a hurricane of pain. But no matter how far she falls, there’s no redemption from the overwhelming guilt.

Two souls consumed by their pasts fight to learn how to survive. But all hope seems to be lost.
Until they meet each other.

Excerpt: When the speech starts, something about her voice is not right. But when I look up from the brochure, I forget about her voice altogether.
Her eyes.
I know that look in them. Haunted and lost.
I sit up straight in my seat and tune in to her speech. I frown as I start to pay attention to what she says. She has some kind of notes in front of her, but she’s not reading them. I don’t think she’s saying what she’s written on them at all. She speaks of hardship, loss, and the ability to put everything behind through hard work. I have a hunch she’s referring to something more than what’s happening here today. Her porcelain skin gets paler with every word. Her eyes become glassy before long, and then she tucks a strand of black hair behind her ear. I’m sure as hell she wiped away a tear.
No.
Someone like her shouldn’t be crying. Hurting.
I suddenly have the urge to hold her, do whatever it takes to stop what is hurting her. Make that look in her eyes disappear, and make her smile instead.
It’s an urge I don’t recognize.
I also have another urge. I recognize this one. The urge to bite that full lower lip of hers, and run my tongue down her neck, all the way to that sweet hollow. And then rip her shirt. Button by button. Better, even. Rip them apart all at once and cup her breasts. Twirl my tongue around her nipples.
Fuck.
I’ve got to get a grip. I’m so aroused I’d like nothing better than to disappear with her into an empty classroom. But I don’t think she’s the type. Her skirt is a few inches too long for her to be that type.
Even if she were . . . I’d like to do things a little differently than usual.
First, I’d put a smile on her face.
Then I’d get her to beg me to take her.
When everyone applauds and she leaves the stage, I stand up and walk to the front, planning to start the first thing right away. After she shakes the parents’ hands, and hugs one of the girls who won, she stops in front of a guy who puts his arm around her waist and kisses her.
On her lips.
The view hits me like a whiplash. Of course she has a boyfriend. It’s not like she would wait for me, the biggest fuck-up among fuck-ups, to make her smile. She already has someone who can make her smile.
Except she’s not smiling. After they break from the kiss, her expression hasn’t changed. Whatever causes her torment, the idiot she’s with has no idea how to make it better. Someone like her should always smile. She deserves someone who can make her smile. And this idiot is far from what she needs.

Excerpt: My forehead leans against hers as I gaze into her deep blue eyes that are full of longing. I want her to believe me, to trust in me, to feel that I need her. I didn’t want her to get hurt because of me, but I can’t stay away any longer. I need her more than anything. She is my drug and I’m giving in to my addiction.
I lick and bite my lip in anticipation, waiting for her to let me in. I can’t stop wanting her, but if she really doesn’t want me the same way I do then I’ll have no choice but to stop. “Tell me what you want. What you really need. Do you want me to let you go? Do you want me to stop hunting for you?” I whisper.
I’m pleading in my head for her to say ‘no.’ I look her in the eye, telling her without words that this is what I desire the most. She takes in a deep breath and opens her mouth.
When she says, “Kiss me. I want you to kiss me,” I’m done for.
I press my lips on top of hers like before, taking it slow and easy this time. It felt like I was dying of thirst, but now, after knowing she’s okay with it, I’m much calmer. I take her lips in slow, lavish licks, kissing her with every ounce of my love.
She shivers in my arms as I hold onto her tight, pulling her closer to me. She kisses me back tenderly, her lips as caring and soft as she is. Her hot mouth is driving me insane. She’s the only one who can do this to me.
She’s turning to mush in my arms, and I love how it feels, so powerful, so intense. My instincts take over as I grab her hands and pin them above her head. I alternate my kisses with nibbles, arousing her so much she moans out loud. My cock responds with enthusiasm, poking against the fabric of my pants, eager to take her.
Before I know it, my hands are slipping down her body, along her waist, and to her thighs, my fingers desperate to squeeze that tight ass of hers. Her arms find their way to my chest, and I love how she feels me up, desperate to get a hold of me. She twines her arms around my neck, giving me full access to her skin. I kiss my way to her neck, finally able to press my lips on that one spot I know winds girls up. She starts panting, and then I know I’ve hit the sweet spot.
I’ve waited so long for this that it takes every fiber of my being not to pick her up and bang her against the car right now. She’s a virgin, and I don’t want to make her do things she’s not ready for. She’s never been fucked, and that’s all I ever do. I don’t make love. I bang girls, take them in whatever position I like. I’m not so sure she’s even been kissed like this before.
But shit, this is fucking hot.
I pull back for a second, breathing out my horniness. “God, that dress,” I groan. “Why’d you have to put that on?”
“Couldn’t come to the party in a pair of sweatpants,” she mutters.
She giggles when I leave little pecks on her collarbone, peeking down into her dress. I can already see the swell of her tits, primed and ready for me to cup and lick the crown. “Hmmm …” I rest my head on her shoulder, nibbling on her earlobe. “You look so damn hot … You don’t wanna know what goes on in my mind when you’re all dressed up like this. It’s too dirty to handle,” I whisper.
I can feel the goose bumps forming on her body as my hands slide down her arm. “Although I wouldn’t mind the sweatpants either. Easier to take off.”
Although nothing beats her sex appeal in this black dress. Damn.
I suckle on her earlobe and move back to her lips again, leaving hickeys all over her neck. My hand shifts to her ass and I squeeze tight, feeling her perky flesh in my fingers. She gasps. Hot fucking Jesus. Now I really want to come inside her.
Our lips are locked, our eyes closed, and my mind is whirring with thoughts about stripping her bare. When she grasps my hair and tugs me closer my cock thumps in my pants. My fingers slide down her leg and move up her dress, slowly getting closer to her most sensitive spot. God, I wonder if she’s ever been touched there. I’d like to be the first.
I’m fucking her with my mouth, my tongue going crazy as I press my cock against her thigh. Sweet Jesus. We’re not even naked yet and I already feel like I want to make her scream my name.

** This is book 1 in a two-part series
** New Adult Romance recommended for readers aged 18+ due to language and strong sexual content


Excerpt:
I didn’t just want to taste her, inch by delectable inch. I wanted to feast on her until she screamed my name in dazed repetition.
But first I had to slow down before my own needs flared wildly out of control and I risked looking like the inexperienced one here.
Finesse, I reminded myself. Finesse.
I didn’t want to remind her of Brody.
There would be no rushing, no demands. Just infinite pleasure for Viv.
I lifted my mouth from her breasts and gently pulled away to make sure she was doing okay. But when I looked at her again, I suddenly forgot what I’d wanted to say.
All I could do was stare at her.
Hot damn. She was sex on legs.
I’d never seen anything more tantalizing in my life. The diaphanous crimson material barely covered her lush breasts, and her pebbled nipples were poking through the wisps of lace.
I swallowed with a dry throat. As my gaze drifted downward, the building swell of my erection pulsed painfully beneath my jeans.
A thin, narrow triangle strip barely covered her sweet mound.
God. She was so blond. Everywhere. The red lace, set against the blond patch of curls dusting her pussy ignited a dangerous fire deep inside me.
Damn. It was insane how much I wanted this woman.
She looked so delicious, so delectable that I wanted nothing more than to bury myself inside her soft and pliant body.
But tonight wasn’t about me.
It was about Vivian.
It was all about Vivian. And only Vivian … making her feel wanted. Desired.
My hands came up to caress her face and her beautiful doe eyes were fixed on mine.
I caught a glimmer of wariness. A faint flash, but it was gone as soon as it had appeared.
“It’s okay, Viv,” I said softly, giving her another chance to back out. “We don’t have to do this.”
She considered my words, but said nothing. Instead she licked her already moist lips. Then she rose up on her tiptoes and kissed me fiercely, with no inhibitions, as if to prove to me that she had no misgivings, no second thoughts.
I groaned into her mouth as she ground her hips, rubbing firmly against the hard length of my erection.
Another wave of desire shot through me, followed by a smaller current of misgiving.
I needed this to be good for Viv.
No. Not just good. Damned good.
And I was up for the challenge.
When the kiss ended, I looked into her eyes. “Do you trust me?”
“I always have.” Her words came easily, and without thought.
Warmth unfurled in my chest at her faith in me. I took her hand and guided her to the leather armchair. “Come,” I said again, and this time there would be no turning back.
Vivian lowered herself onto the armchair. As she reclined into the cushions, she arched her back, causing her breasts to rise, and her nipples to thrust out proudly through the textured lace.
I paused to take my fill of her. Then, with my arms braced on either side, I dipped my head and flicked my tongue over the protrusion of her nipple. “Guess what we’re going to do now?”
“What?” she murmured, her voice low and breathy.
Her creamy breasts were spilling over the crimson lace cups and I traced my tongue over her smooth skin in slow and tantalizing strokes. “We’re going to play.”
She dug her nails into my shoulders as I lavished the same attention on her other breast. “We’re going to play a little game called Tell Liam What You Want.”
“But …” A whispered breath slipped past her lips. “I also want to play Tell Vivian What You Want.”
I lifted my mouth from her breast and kissed the frown lines on her forehead. “Sweetheart, if we played that game we’d be here all night.”
Her cheeks blushed a deep pink and she looked so endearing I almost lost it.

Book Review: Snowed over

Book Title: Snowed over
Author: Angie Stanton
Kindle Edition: 162 pages

Summary(from Goodreads): To college student, Katie Brandt, ‘Home for the Holidays’ sounds like hell. When her parents separated, their holiday traditions shattered like a dropped ornament. What could be worse than celebrating Christmas with her suddenly single mom and mom’s new boyfriend?

Alex Walker, an engaged 20-year-old, dreads going home for his own reasons. He has a daunting task ahead of him and wishes he could skip the holidays altogether. So when a friend of a friend needs a ride north, Alex finds that having beautiful Katie seated by his side proves to be just the distraction he needs.

A simple ride home for Christmas turns into a nightmare when light snow rages into a full-scale blizzard. Katie and Alex find themselves stranded, and a vacant cabin becomes a haven from the storm.
Under different circumstances, time alone with Alex would be the ultimate Christmas gift, but Katie knows Alex is engaged and she must hide her growing attraction.

However, Alex harbors a secret that just might change this holiday from the worst Christmas ever, to the best.


What I thought: First of all, I know it's not Christmas, I just started reading this book during the holidays, but then got too busy to finish it, and realized the other day that I had so many books on my currently reading list, and I wanted to finish some books that i started reading and stopped because I was interested in something else or got too busy, also I didn't have much left so I decided to read it now rather than wait for November. 

Now on to the review, this one will be short because I don't have much to say about it except that it was such an adorable story it made me so happy to read it, also it made me want to take a road trip with a cute guy in a blizzard and find a cabin and wait for rescue...it might not be a good thing that I would want that hahaha, but like I said, it's such an adorable story, and I definitely recommend it if you want a cute and quick read.

The Characters: I loved the characters (well except for Trina...that bitch..lol), I was never annoyed with the characters, and I loved that, and...I don't have any more to say haha.

Would I reread ?: Yes I can see myself rereading this book during the holidays, I am thinking of maybe rereading it in December maybe.

Stars: I gave this book 5 stars out of 5, I definitely recommend it if you want a cute and quick read.

Book Review: Hush Hush

Title: Hush Hush
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Series: Book nr.1 in Hush Hush saga
Hardcover pages: 391
Published: October 13th 2009 by Simon and Schuster

Summary(from Goodreads): A SACRED OATH
A FALLEN ANGEL
A FORBIDDEN LOVE


Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.



What I thought: I read this book in one day, I was really into it, it was creepy, and funny, and annoying at some parts, I really enjoyed that ( well... not the annoying part, that was..well..annoying, haha). This book had this really creepy atmosphere, where you feel like something is wrong, or something bad is going to happen (at least that is how I felt reading it), and honestly, i loved that, I enjoyed that it made me feed a little scared, and creeped out haha.

I loved the storyline, it wasn't my favorite though, I mean, I am not going to be thinking about this book a lot, like i did with the Archived, or Vampire academy and other favorite books, this book will be something that i enjoyed once, and might maybe pick up again in a few years, but probably not.

The Characters:
Nora Grey: I liked her character, I loved how she didn't fall at Patch's feet, and how she did feel creeped out by him, she knew there was something bad about him, and didn't trust him completely.
Patch: Honestly, I was also creeped out by him, I would be definitely creeped out if a guy come up to me and knew stuff about me, but I did enjoy his character at some points, I thought he was a fun character, I've read that he is a huge asshole in the second book, but I haven't read that book yet, so I don't know how I will feel about him once I finish this saga.
Vee: Oh my lord, she annoyed the crap out of me, there were parts where I did like her character, but most of the time she annoyed me to hell, If my best friend was scared of some guy, and thought he murdered someone, I would stay the hell away from that person, no questions asked, but she kept hanging out with them, it just annoyed me, and I felt like she was a bad friend for that.

Will I reread ?: I might maybe, in a few years when i've forgotten about it, but probably not though.

Will I read the rest of this saga: Yes I definitely will.

Stars: 4 stars out of 5

Book Review: The Archived

Title: The Archived
Author: Victoria Schwab
Genre: Young Adult, Mystery
Published: January 22nd 2013 by Hyperion
Hardcover pages: 328

Summary(from Goodreads): Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books.

Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive.

Da first brought Mackenzie Bishop here four years ago, when she was twelve years old, frightened but determined to prove herself. Now Da is dead, and Mac has grown into what he once was, a ruthless Keeper, tasked with stopping often—violent Histories from waking up and getting out. Because of her job, she lies to the people she loves, and she knows fear for what it is: a useful tool for staying alive.

Being a Keeper isn’t just dangerous—it’s a constant reminder of those Mac has lost. Da’s death was hard enough, but now her little brother is gone too. Mac starts to wonder about the boundary between living and dying, sleeping and waking. In the Archive, the dead must never be disturbed. And yet, someone is deliberately altering Histories, erasing essential chapters. Unless Mac can piece together what remains, the Archive itself might crumble and fall.

In this haunting, richly imagined novel, Victoria Schwab reveals the thin lines between past and present, love and pain, trust and deceit, unbearable loss and hard-won redemption.


What I thought: Oh man, oh man!, I adored this book!. I have a hard time thinking of what to write about what i thought about this book because I loved it so much, all I want to say is I love it over and over again haha, and that is not something people want to read. When I first found out about this book I didn't really care for it, the summary didn't interest me, but then Jesse the reader(Booktuber), Kept raving and raving about it, so I was like well ok, I might check it out, but then I went to the library and there it was, on the shelf, looking at me, so I took that as a sign and got the book and read it, and I am so thankful that I did, because if I hadn't, I would have missed out on so much awesomeness!, seriously if you have not checked this book out, I highly recommend that you do!, I loved the storyline, I loved the characters, I loved the whole Keeper and History stuff, I thought it was Amazeballs, this is such a unique book, reading it I felt a little creeped out, like there was something wrong going on, there was this kind of bad atmosphere in the book(if that makes sense), and it was a bit creepy, but it made the book that more awesome.

I need the second book in my hand now! haha, I will definitely be buying both books for myself and reading them over and over.

The Characters:
Mackenzie: I really enjoyed her character, I was never annoyed at her, which might be a first, because usually most of the time the main character annoys me at least once, but she didn't, I loved reading through her POV, and I loved discovering this new secret world from her, there wasn't even one page that bored me.
Wesley: I loved him, I thought he was such a cutie (even though guys with eyeliners aren't my thing anymore), I really enjoyed Wesley's character, he made me giggle a few times (yes, giggle...), I loved him and Mackenzie, I kept rooting for them, but, I was so glad that the whole book isn't her being all swoony over him, because the book wouldn't have been as good if it would have been like that. There is a some romance in this book, but it doesn't over power the storyline, you can barely notice it's there, and I love that.

Would I reread ?: I definitely can see myself rereading this book a few times over the years, honestly, like I said a few times, I really enjoyed the characters, there wasn't one part or page where I felt bored, it kept me on my toes, and that ending!, I did not see that coming! haha.

Stars: I give this book 5 stars out of 5, definitely check it out and buy it, because we need the third book!.

Book Review: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

Title: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Author: Michelle Hodkin
Genres: Paranormal, Mystery, Romance, Young Adult.
Characters: Mara Dyer and Noah Shaw...
Published: September 27th 2011 by Simon and Schuster

Summary(from Goodreads): Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.

It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.

There is.

She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.

She’s wrong.



What I thought: First of all... How cute is that dress on the cover ?, does any one know where to get it ?. 
This book was honestly a big Mindf a lot of the times, There were times when I had no idea what was happening, I didn't know if it was real, if it was actually happening or if Mara was imagining it, and I loved that honestly, but I wouldn't want that for myself because it seems scary, not knowing if it's really happening or not haha. I am not sure how to exactly review this book because I feel like I might reveal too much and spoil it for someone who might want to read it and I definitely don't want to do that, so all i will say is that I really enjoyed this book, it was spooky, funny, interesting, awesome, just about everything, Every time I picked it up I had to force myself to put it down because I was enjoying it so much.

The Characters: 
Mara Dyer: There were times when she annoyed me a lot, I felt like when something happened and she wasn't sure if it happened, she should have asked, it would have been much easier than always wondering if it had happened or not, but other than that I really enjoyed her character, I liked how it wasn't love at first sight with her and Noah, and how she didn't fall at his feet from the start, I really don't like it when authors do that with girls.

Noah Shaw: I also liked his character, but he isn't really that memorable to me, like Dimitri, Warner, Kenji, Adrian...etc, I will always remember them and love them, but Noah I just like and don't love, he's just an okay character, he didn't stand out too much for me, maybe that will change when I read the second book.

Stars: I gave this book a 5 stars out of 5, I definitely recommend it, I already have recommended it to a few people, and hopefully they will love it as much as I did

Will I reread ?: Yeah I think I might definitely reread this book, I did enjoy it a lot, and would love to reread it in a couple of years.

Book Review: You are mine by Janeal Falor

Book Title: You are Mine
Author: Janeal Falor
Published: May 6th 2013
Pages: 370

Summary (from Goodreads): Serena knows a few simple things. She will always be owned by a warlock. She will never have freedom. She will always do what her warlock wishes, regardless of how inane, frivolous, or cruel it is. And if she doesn’t follow the rules, she will be tarnished. Spelled to be bald, inked, and barren for the rest of her life—worth less than the shadow she casts.

Then her ownership is won by a barbarian from another country. With the uncertainty that comes from belonging to a new warlock, Serena questions if being tarnished is really worse than being owned by a barbarian, and tempts fate by breaking the rules. When he looks the other way instead of punishing her, she discovers a new world. The more she ventures into the forbidden, the more she learns of love and a freedom just out of reach. Serena longs for both. But in a society where women are only ever property, hoping for more could be deadly.


What I thought: The author contacted me and asked me if I wanted to read and review this book, and she sent me the first chapter in that email, I read it and I was so hooked that I HAD to know what was going to happen, this book hooked me in from the start, I was so interested the whole time, I had no idea what was going to happen, and I loved that.

The World: My god, I could never live in this kind of place, basically the men treat women like objects that they own, and basically treat them like crap, It pissed me off so much, I thank god every day that the world isn't like that and that we don't have all those rules and that women can do anything we want and marry whoever we want.

The Characters: I liked Serena, I liked how her character changes, and how everything turns out for her, but I feel like i didn't get to know Zade enough (I did like him, but like I said, I feel like I don't know him that well, I wish I could have gotten to know him a little better, because he really interests me.)

Stars: I gave this book 4.5 stars out of 5, I definitely do recommend it.
