Crank by Ellen Hopkins

To be honest, I didn't really like this book when I first started reading it. For starters, I'm not really a big fan of poetry. But as it moved along, I got used to the way it was written and I really started to love it. A girl, about my age, going to visit her deadbeat dad who she loved unconditionally. A boy, who made her summer beginning. There was a lot of drug use, and I mean a lot. But hey, what would you expect from a book titled "Crank?" There had to be some meth in it, and I was ready for it.

What I wasn't expecting, was how spot on the characters were. None acted out of place. They all acted their own age, and though some of the characters were shocking, it all fit together. I didn't know that this book was a 'true story' until I re-read the first page. What the hell! It's awesome. I know that drug addicts have a hard time, but I didn't know that it could happen like this. Who knew?! Anyways. If you haven't read this book yet, I recommend it for sure. I'm in love with it, and I'm so glad that the second one came along with it. I can't wait to read it! (:


Infected by Scott Sigler

Holy eff. This book was awesome. I know I couldn't really get into it at the start, but I knew it was going to be good. I was expecting young adult before I really looked into it, (mostly because someone shelved it as so in Value Village) but sometimes you need a break from ya, you know?  This was an awesome break. I thought it would be zombies, but it was more parasitic zombies than anything. The author compared the virus/parasite to the virus Leucochloridium paradoxum. It takes over the host's brain and urges it to commit suicide, and then travels from species to species. It was awesome to see that in a book.

I could tell that this book was more written for men, than anything. Especially when there was a parasite in his .. junk area. bahah. I had to ask my dad who mostly read horror, because I couldn't really relate to the part where he cut off his own wiener with chicken scissors. Lol. But whatever. It was kind of graphic. Aside from that part, which might I say was written for shock factor, it was an awesome book. I definitely recommend it, no matter what other review may claim. It's exciting. Just read it already! :P


Spirits That Walk in Shadow by Nina Kiriki Hoffman

What an awesome book. And I knew it was going to be awesome from the moment I saw it. I mean, punk hair and ear piercings? Also. A cool looking lizard that I really want? How could it be horrible? And was I ever right. It was full of magic, and I learned things I didn't know could happen. Like when the 'feelings vamp' split itself into two separate people? that was awesome. I wish I could do that. I mean, changing into something totally different would be awesome too, but I dunno. Feelings children are pretty cool.
Kim was a pretty relatable character for me, depressed, couldn't find something to get into, or she couldn't get back into something. Dumb people in high school pushed her to the edge. It's something that happens to everybody. I also like how she acted her age. So many books I've read have people in them who are either acting way too young, or insanely too old. I can't even explain how many times that's made me hate a book. It's just so dumb. lol.
All in all, I loved this book. It had just the right amount of magic and paranormal things in it to make it fiction. Hey, if it didn't have those, I probably would've thought it could be true. If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it! (:

Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

This was a good book. And if my kobo would've loaded the pages a little faster, I would've finished it a lot sooner. what can I say. I like werewolves. And this book was about werewolves, so it just made it more interesting. It was full of action, and although the insta-love pissed me off a little, this book sucked me in until the very end.
I still don't really get the whole ' I was raised by wolves so now I've got super powers that none of them have. ' thing, she wasn't even really raised by wolves. She was raised by a human, and the wolves kind of sort of taught her how to fight other wolves. that doesn't mean she should be able to have weird mind powers, it means she should be able to fight. Oh, and also? She needs to be a little older. Apperently she was 14 at the beginning of this book and she walked and talked and acted like someone who was 18 or 19. Which can't be. WHY ARE PEOPLE MAKING THEIR CHARACTERS SO YOUNG NOW. It's weird. I might only be 16 now, but trust me. I didn't act like that when I was 14.
Those were really the only bad things. I liked the rest of the book. I thought she would go to school more, but she didn't. I guess 14 year olds don't have to go to school if they don't want to anymore? lol. whatever. But that's basically why it's only four stars. Which trust me, is still pretty damn good.

The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

First of all, I'd like to say that I understand where Sydney is coming from. If I were her, I'd be a little scared around vampires too. I mean, sure, I'd get used to them, but I'd still be scared. I mean, come on. They're blood sucking, magic using, immortal if they're bad, people that look like people. You get what I mean? That being said, I still probably would have gone after Adrian if I were her. He's awesome. And he wants to hang out all the time. Also? He stands up for people and things. Who wouldn't love that?
This book was action packed, and pretty awesome. I wasn't quite sure on who this Brayden kid was, but I'd never date him if I were Sydney. I mean, sure, he likes all the same stuff and does all the same stuff as her, but as soon as i figured out that that was all he was going to talk about all the time, I would definitely have broken it off. I'm not really sure why Sydney cried after, but I guess it was for the better. Now. In the next book I'm hoping her and Adrian get together. How cute would that be? (:
I like how there was another 'section', lets call it, of the Alchimists, but there's always a churchey side of something or another, right? Though, I'm still not really clear on what Trey had to do with it, aside from being in it. He seemed like he didn't really want to be in there with them. I wish that Sydney would be a little more into the whole magic thing with the teacher, but I guess she's like, offended or something by it. Oh well. I'm sure that awesome thing will grow on her. :D
I think that's all I'm going to write. It's an awesome book, by an awesome writer, who writes awesome series'. Is that even a word? Probably. Whatever. It was awesome, anyways. If I hadn't said it enough. :P You should definitely read it if you read the Vampire Academy  books, and even if you haven't you should read it. (:


Messenger by Lois Lowry

To be honest, I'm still not really sure how the books in this series are connected. I mean, I know that the second book and the third book have a couple of the same characters in them, but how is the first book related to any of this? What happened to Jonas and Caleb-if I remember correctly? I mean sure, they're all dystopian books with basically the same idea. but really, how do they even match up? It's weird. Maybe someone could explain it to me?
That being said, I still enjoy this series. It's short, and straight to the point. Sometimes I wish it would be a little longer, but that's fine. Sometimes you need a short book in between long books just for a break. I didn't realize it at first, but Matty was the child from 'Gathering Blue'. I don't really remember more than bits and pierced , but once Kira came into the story with her twisted leg and sewing powers, I started to remember.
Overall, I liked this book. It was interesting, and the forest adventure was pretty cool. I'm not totally sure what happened at the end there, but there's still one book to read, so I'm sure I'll find out. (:


Thanks for reading!

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

I have to admit, this book really did make me cry. Which is saying something, because I really don't cry for books, or even movies. So this means that this book really got to me. As soon as Adam came into the room all puffy-eyed, I knew I was going to cry. I don't know why exactly, but a guy crying gets to me a lot more than a girl crying. Maybe because I'm a girl, that desensitizes me from crying along with them? :P
There was really only one part in this book I didn't really like, and that was the whole 'play me like a cello' part and that's because it was just insanely weird for me. I know that it was like the only remotely sexual thing for Adam and Mia, but it was still weird. Like, imagine walking in like that? How would you explain that?! ha ha. It could have been less creepy.
Other than that, there wasn't really anything else I didn't like. It was a cute book, full of some good, some bad flashbacks  and I really want to read the next one. Did I mention I couldn't put it down? Well I couldn't. It was insane. I pretty much read that whole book in one sitting. Which is awesome. If you haven't read this book, I definitely think you should. (:

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

although this book was a little hard to get into at first i really enjoyed it. narrated by death, this book takes place in Nazi Germany. it reminds me of Anne frank, the way they hide a Jew in the basement. one of the main characters was a young girl who lost her family at the beginning of the book. her brother died on the train, and her mother dropped her off at a house and she never returned. in the beginning she missed her mo, but she quickly discarded that and replaced her old family with her new foster family. 
that ending, i swear it almost made me cry. i mean, i knew it had to happen, they were in the middle of WW11, but i really didn't want it to happen. i was surprised when the bombing wasn't the ending, but happy to know that there was a sweet ending for that awful thing that happened.
i don't know what else to write without spoiling it! if what you read before wasn't too much of a spoiler, i mean. i wish i could be a book thief, under different circumstances though, of course. i don't think i could handle being in WW11. i loved the twist with death in it, I've never really read anything like it before, and it was awesome. if you haven't read this book yet, i definitely recommend it! (:

The City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare : Review

          What do I think about this series? Although it's action filled and exciting, I wish there could just be a conclusion already. A couple books back it should have ended. I mean, wasn't it only supposed to be a trilogy anyways? You can tell that she's extending it to create one of those never-ending series for the fans, and that's not a good thing. It's dragging on, and I'm hoping that I'm not the only one in the whole young-adult universe that thinks so. 
          What do I think about this book alone, however? I thought that it was exciting. Just like the rest of the series, and even the series itself, it was packed with action, splashed with romance, and touched with family feud  I might want the series to end, but I do still like the books. The characters are starting to get a little bland and shallow, but I still do like the books. I'm starting to think, though, that Clare is running out of idea's. I don't understand why the bad guys can't just die at the end and it could all be finished. With a happy ending, even. Might not be the best choice, but at least it could be finished. 
          Honestly, I'm starting to think that these books are all the same. Dating drama, family feud, war breaks out, dating drama is over, all crisis averted. The family goes back to almost normal. How much easier could it be? And that's why I'm bored. They really are all the same, and I'm actually beginning to dread the next books. Lets hope it's the last, and also hope that I'm not the only one who feels this way. 
          No matter how tired I am of the series, though I still liked the book. And because of that, (and also my weird obsession to finish books and series' no matter what,) I'm going to read the next one. And if there's another one after that, I'm probably going to read that one too. I would recommend that you do that too, just to see what happens in the end. (: 

(group-although not so active lately, I apologize.)

Cinder by Marissa Meyer : Review

In the future, there are robots, rulers, and ALIENS. What an awesome mix. I knew I'd like this book from the second I started it. Even though it's in China, I still imagined everyone to be white.. since I am a white Canadian girl. It happens. I didn't imagine everyone to be Chinese, lol. Especially the Cyborg's. Everyone was white in my mind, haha. Is that racist? I didn't think it was, but uh. Anyways. Back to the review.
I got used to the whole last name first pretty quickly, it was easy. I really hated Pearl and Adri, but I'm sure everyone did. They're awful people and I really wanted Cinder to backhand them a couple times. Especially with her robot hand. Wouldn't that have been awesome? I was literally shaking a couple times there. Lol. I know, I overreact to books. But it happens when you get sucked into one like that.
I know it says that I started reading this on September 7th, and I really did. School started, and the first thing I did was go to the school library. I mean, hey, it's free books. I read the first couple chapters that day, and then I forgot it in my locker. For two months. And I want to say it wasn't totally my fault, that I moved into other people's locker's a couple times, but I really need some extra remembering power. (Anyone got any to spare?) And then I brought it home, and finished it. In like a day. Which is crazy, because that was a big book! That just shows how awesome it was. (;
The character's were awesome. I'm hoping there's another one of these books somewhere. I really want to keep reading. (isn't that the worst) But if that's not possible, I'm sure I can wait. distract myself with other books. It's not like I have a shortage of those things, ugh. If you haven't read it yet I definitely recommend it. Even if you don't like the whole in the future, space and robots kind of scene. READ IT AND LOVE IT. lol :P
Another thing. I was not expecting that ending. Like. At all. I mean, I was kind of thinking about it, but no. Not the full blown thing. So, watch out for that. lol :P

Thanks for reading! <3

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan : Review

I'd like to thank the publisher for letting me read this via
What a cute book. I really didn't know that it was written by the same people that wrote 'Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist' until I looked it up. The whole time I was reading this book, I was like. Huh. This reminds me of that movie. Which I really liked, because Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist is like one of my favorite movies. I really need to read that book though, :P
I know this came out a couple years ago, but I still got it off Netgalley. Which is awesome, because I didn't even know this book existed until I saw it there. I'm glad I got to read it. It's a cute story about a couple book nerds, like me, who found each other through books, and made their boring holidays fun. A couple times through this book, I found myself thinking about what would happen if I did this. But no, this is a fictional thing, and I'm sure it would only work in books. :P Plus. I'm not that desperate, am I? hahah. Lily's kind of a shut in, she doesn't really get into other's business, and she mostly just sits around at home. Dash, on the other hand, goes out all time, from what I learned, and has friends who's business just sucks him in. Which is really what happens to me. I would say that I'm more of a Dash than a Lily, and that's not a bad thing. I know I'm saying this a lot, but they're really cute. I know they're fictional, but I could totally see a couple like them being around my school. I mean, even though there are really only about five people who are really hard core readers, one being me, I could still see it. Maybe if some guys got into books. But anyways, lol. If you haven't read this book already, you definitely should. And, while we're on the topic of cute things, you should really watch Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. And not just because I've got a big movie star crush on Michael Cera. That's an awesome movie, and if the book is anything like the movie, I'm sure I'll love it.

And All the Stars by Andrea K. Host : Review

First of all, I'd like to thank the publisher of this books for allowing me to read this books via Netgalley.
Now, Onto the review.
This book is about aliens. If that wasn't obvious from the second or third chapter, it is now. I wasn't really sure what it was going to be like from the first page, because from the beginning it reminded me of a saw movie.. which isn't always a good thing. I think that the style of this book changed a lot during the duration of this book, and I didn't really like that. It was a good book, sure, but I couldn't really stay all the way into it. One of the things I didn't really like, was how the scene's changed, because it was too quickly. I'd be reading, and then all of the sudden the character would be somewhere else, or talking about some other thing and I'd be totally lost again. And I mean, in what world is that a good thing? I liked the book, But still. There are always some aspects I don't like in every book.
Madeleine was trapped in some kind of cage. I'm not sure how she got out, I think she climbed, or slid, or fell out of something, but she did get out. (That's not a spoiler, is it? :P) She makes some friends, and she falls in love. I DON'T LIKE THE INSTA LOVE IN THIS BOOK. Thought that should be clear. It happens too often, and I don't care who it is, I DON'T LIKE IT. So. Just so you know. (; It was like. bam. crush. bam. making out. bam. sex. and then done. and then back together. IT'S AWFUL.
Overall, It was a good book. I'd reccomend it. And even thought there were some parts I didn't like, there were also parts I really liked. Like the aliens. I haven't read anything like it. Also the powers. They were pretty awesome. And I'd love to be covered in stars. I'm obsessed with Astronomy. Which is awesome, because there were aliens in this, Lol. As if that wasn't obvious. So, I think that you should really check out this book. (:

Thanks for reading! (:

The New Kid by Temple Matthews : Review

I got an arc copy of this book from Thanks for that, by the way. (:

Sometimes, moving is a good thing. Especially in Will's situation. What he does requires him to move all the time, and he's not always especially happy about it. To keep the ones he cares about the most alive, though, he has too. And that, makes for the beginning of an awesome book. Just moving in, he knows how everything goes. Tip the contractors, tip the movers, and most of all, tip everyone else involved in the house. Though I'm not really sure how a 16 year old boy could get all that money and figure out how to rebuild his house every time he moves, I didn't really mind that I didn't know every little detail. I just, you know. Wish he was a little bit older, haha. Anyways. He's like, some kind of insane ass-kicking superhero, except not a superhero in the normal terms. He's just really awesome at fighting, and he makes his own weapons. Kind of a younger Bruce Wayne, if you will. WHICH IS SO AWESOME. It's like batman, except in high school. And he fights demons, not crazed murderers. Not that that isn't cool. BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME.

I really liked this book, and I think I'm going to go try and find the next one. I'm sure I saw it on the Netgalley site. I really hope I did. Because that would be the best thing ever. :D I think everyone would like this book, and I'm hoping that this review helps people figure that out! I wasn't sure what it was about before I started reading it, but that's not always a bad thing. I do it all the time. ;D But anyways. CHECK OUT THIS BOOK. Just. Do that one thing for me. :D

Thanks for reading!

Seeds of War by Rachel Fisher : Review

I received a copy of this book from the author, Rachel Fisher, for reviewing purposes. Thanks for that by the way! (:

Okay. First thing's first. I am so in love with this cover, I just want to dye my hair like the colours in the sky. It is so pretty. The book was pretty awesome too, which is always a good thing. I can't get enough of this series! It might take a little while switching back and forth between paper books and ebooks, but I'll gladly do it. If you haven't read the first book, Eden's Root, I definitely recommend it. This is the second book of this series, and I honestly can't wait for the third one!
My first thoughts about this book were, I love the cover, I can't wait to read it, and 'oh my god, there's another one!', which was definitely a good sign. I wasn't really sure what was going to happen in this installment, but it didn't matter. I was excited ever since it arrived in the mail. I'm happy I was able to read this, and you should definitely read it too. Though filled with action and many more awesome things, it was a little too fast for me, and while reading I was often lost because things changed so quickly. But besides that, it was an awesome book!
I think that's all I'm going to say about that. You've probably gotten the idea of what I thought of it by now, and if you don't know what this book is about, you could probably just read my review of Eden's Root, (If I'm remembering correctly) and get the same idea. So yeah. Check out this series, and check out these links! (:

Mik Murdoch by Michell Plested: Review

I wasn't really sure what I was expecting coming into this book, other than thinking I might not like it. Usually, I don't like books about little kids. Because usually, books about little kids are written for little kids. That is not necessarily true with this book. I mean, sure, I might not have been totally into it at the beginning, but it was a good book. I almost believed it. It could have been something that had actually happened until the whole superpowers part. But hey. It's fiction. You can't believe it all, right?
At the beginning of the book, Mik is just like any regular nine year old boy. Until, that is, he see's Spiderman for the first time, and that gets him thinking. What if he could be a superhero? That begins his journey of becoming a superhero. It may have taken a couple years, and he may have wanted to give up a couple times, but it happened. I love how he never gave up on it, when if I were in his position, I would have given up more than once, and that just shows what a good character he is. I'm not sure if you'd find many nine year old's that patient and innocent now, but hey. It happens. (:
Overall, this was a good book. And even though I might not like books about little kids, this book definitely made me think more about little kids and what they think about. It was good, and I liked it.

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa : Review

What can I say? This book is awesome. Hey, this whole series is awesome so far. And I know its a little early to say that last one, seeing as this is only the second book and all, but hey. It's awesome. So let's just leave it at that. And hope I didn't just jinx it, haha.
In this adventure, we pick up almost right where the last book left off. Ash and Meghan are continuing their journey to the Winter Court, and that's pretty much it.. besides the whole. Forbidden love thing. That always happens, doesn't it? But yeah. There's lots of killing in this book.. Also there's a love triangle, which isn't that interesting, but hey. It's Young Adult Fiction. I guess it always needs a love triangle.. People die, the adventure continues, so on and so on. It's just like any other fantasy in that way. I mean, it's awesome, but these books are all the same in that way. Which is fine with me. I really don't know what else to say. It's an awesome book, and if you haven't started this series, get on it! I mean, Hey. You never know if you like something before you read it, right? :P I think I'll leave it at that. It's kind of short, but I don't know what else to add. lol. Gimme a break, I just got off school. <3

Unseen by Rachel Caine : Review

 What do I think about this book? Well. It's just like the others in the series. I'm not really sure if that's a good thing though, because I'm kind of getting tired of the whole idea.. After powering through the Weather Warden's series that just kept getting worse, I'm kind of finding that that's what I'm doing in this series. It's pretty  much the same. Which isn't fun for me. You'd think that she would've gotten her fill of writing in this world with the .. what was it? like. twelve books of the Weather Warden series? Yeah. That's too many for me. And oh look. Now there is more. So when I put this at four stars, it's because it was good. I'm just done with it. lol.
Basically what happened in this book was what happened in the last two books. Someone got kidnapped, She killed a bunch of people, and they saved the day at the end. Like jeez, I get that she's old now. I get that she's human now. It's old. Its over and done with. Just stop talking about it maybe? And maybe let the characters do something else for once. That's basically all I have to say about that.. Because I just powered through it. Nothing really stuck for me.. and I'm contemplating bumping it down to three stars.. but I'll just leave it like that. People are acting older than they should in this series and it's weird. Just ... finish it already.

Graceling by Kristen Cashore

First thing I want to say. THIS BOOK IS SO AWESOME. Seriously. It has everything. There's fighting, Lots of killing, People love eachother, and families come together. What could be better? It's kind of an adventure book, and that just makes it better. I loved it. Now, Let's change the subject.
Katsa is an awesome character, and I'm glad she was the main one. Her Grace was awesome, and even though she might not have fully understood it in the beginning of the book, she sure as hell learned what she could about it by the end. And it was awesome. She definitely grew as a character, and that's always a good sign, right? I think that Bitterblue is so cute to. She's a little vicious, but that's not always a bad thing. I think she would be someone I hang out with, even though she's younger, I'm sure she'd fit right in. Po would definitely be an interesting person too be around. And not just because of his eyes. He's got a.. different kind of personality. I'm not sure if I've met someone like him or not, but either way he'd be pretty cool. Also. I'm sure he's hot. If Katsa likes him, well. I guess I have to. ;D
But anyways. I'm not sure what else to right about it? I'm really excited for whenever I get the time to read the next one, I'm absolutely hooked already. So you should definitely read this book if you haven't yet. :D So here are the adds you all love. ;D lol.

Check out my group too! (:

The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong

 Ugh. What did I put the first one as? I don't even know. And since I can't remember it very well, I'm going to have to say it wasn't that good. But this one, on the other hand, was a little bit better.. I think. I'm still annoyed at the x-men thing.. Like come on. Lol. It happens too often. Even if I'm totally in love with x-men, I'm notgoing to be totally in love with this book. To be honest, It's a little annoying. Everyone acts younger than they should. I mean, I get that they're like. 14, but I mean. I don't act anything close to that and I'm 15.. lol. WHO DOES THAT. :P
So, Really, I finished this book like. last week? Whenever I went to Horror Con I finished it. lol. Because I was just sitting at the table and I didn't know what else to do. I'm Broke ass from it now! All my hard earned money.. down the massively awesome horror-con drain. Even though I got some pretty cool stuff. :P But yeah. I didn't really get around to reviewing this.. Because of school. It's really busy right now. Even though I don't really have that many busy classes, It's been really insane hahah. It's dumb, I know. Also I started playing sims again. That isn't helping my big stack of unread books. Urgh. Too much going on.
This book was full of random things like sleeping, and raising zombies. Who does that?! Like really. I know you can't choose what you dream about, but I'm pretty sure she wasn't dreaming about anything like that.. So I don't really get it. But whatever. Like I said up there, The kids in this book are really annoying.. They're all over the place, and not in a good way. Also they're all spoiled brats. Now, I'm not sure if she intended that to happen, but it happened ayways.
I don't know what else to say. I'm tempted to drop the rating down to 3 stars, but I probably won't.. I'll regret it later ;D hahah. Oh well. I'll just leave everything how it is.. lol. :P Read t book if you want. It wasn't that bad, but I wouldn't say it was the best thing ever.. Just.. In the middle. So there. :3 Have some adds! <3

Two Weeks' Notice by Rachel Caine: Review

I never doubted this book for even a moment. You know why? Because it's by Rachel. Effing. Caine. And as you might have noticed by now, I LOVE HER. :D I bought the first book in the series last year at When Words Collide 2011, and thought, Hey. Why not by the second one there too. Only a year later, of course. Too bad she wasn't there this year, totally would have gotten this one signed too. lol.
Bryn is seriously an awesome character. I don't know where she came up with her, and I don't care. She's awesome. I'd only wreck it if I knew. You know what I mean, right? :P She was in the army, which automatically makes her kick-ass. She works at a funeral home, the best place for zombies, and also? Her personality is hilarious. This book totally made me laugh, in between the grotesque parts of course. :P Seriously, when I say grotesque, I mean it. Learned some new things to do with a spoon from this book.. ugh. lol! It's all good though. Just makes it more exciting, am I right? :D If you haven't read this series, You definitely should pick it up some time. It just keeps getting better. Also. Zombies? How can you not. Lol!
So, Since I read this almost a week ago and haven't been able to post a review until now, I really don't have much to say. I've been reading after I read this one too, so it's a little fuzzy. How about I just leave it at how much of an awesome book it is? Lol. So, Yeah. Definitely read it. :D

Destined by P.C & Kirsten Cast: Review

 UGH. Could that ending be any more vague? Like come on. Oooooh. Scary. The goddess talked to you about something random. Ugh. Just ugh. WAY TO GO.
I really wasn't sure if I should read this book at first. I mean, the last one... I really didn't like. The rest of the series I was fine with. They were.. good. :D But yeah, That last one really got me.. And not in a good way.
Somehow. I knew how the book was going to end. Don't ask how. It just happens sometimes. (It's my telekapathical powers..) I'm not going to say the actual ending in the review, THAT WOULD BE AWFUL. But lets just say that it was.. unexpected. Except for me, of course. I could've been right there with them and told them what was going to happen. BUT WHAT A SAD ENDING. I didn't actually think that Dragon was going to pop up like that.. Like wtf.. lol. How does that happen. Also? Where did Aurox go after that 'event' happened? Like seriously. I don't even know. WHAT THE HELL.
So, I know I started this book after I started those other books, But really. I had to finish it. It sucked me in. I'M SORRY. IT HAPPENS SOMETIMES. But yeah. That's a good thing, right? :D It had to happen in this series again, and I'm glad it was in this books. BUT NOW I HAVE TO WAIT. For so long. Ugh. Just ugh. Anyone else annoyed with waiting? Lol. Of course. Everyone is. ;P

That's all I really want to say. This book was awesome. :D READ IT. NOW. I dare you. ;D Lol. Anyways. I'm done here. Have some adds.

Nyx in the House of Night: Mythology, Folklore and Religion

FINALLY. I'm done this book. Holy, man. It was so boring. I mean, Hey. I learned some things about the series, but I don't really think it was worth all of this.. this torture! First of all, I thought there were going to be more pictures. That's what I assumed when I read a portion of it off the house of night site.. but nope. Plus. Who wants to read a book of essays? Not me. I mean, it's cool if you do but just don't recommend them to me.. God. It's a good thing I don't put down books. I have to read them through and through, no matter how bad they are. And I always let you know how I feel about them. :D
To be honest, It was a good research book, and it was really thorough. I just felt like it was a little like a textbook. I felt like I should be taking notes, and then I should watch a really boring clip about this after. That or, watch some good old Bill Nye the Science Guy. Only about Vampyres. If that makes sense. I don't really know what else to say. I mean, hey. If you like to read textbooks for fun, be my guest. It's just I don't get what all the hype was about this book.. I don't even know what I was expecting, I just wasn't expecting what it actually was. So. Read it if you like, just don't blame me when you're falling asleep after the first couple pages!

And now for some adds. <3

Also, Check out my group! We've got an author of the month for September all set up! :D

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

Holy balls. I'm so glad that this series is here, I was seriously missing the vampire academy books. It might've been weird with Sydney in the books since I don't remember her very well, But that's okay. She's pretty awesome. BUT ADRIAN?! I effing love him. He is seriously my favorite. Like aweh, he's so cute sometimes. Total book crush right here. ;D I don't even care that he's not real. I'd love to have a friend like that. I mean, not saying I would replace any friends of mine with him, But It'd still be pretty cool.
I did not expect that ending. Not just the last couple pages, but I that hole ending. It was insane. I didn't even know what was happening until it was too late. I was seriously like, wait, what just happened?! This book sucked me in from the beginning, and even though I started it after I started my other books, I just knew I had to finish it first. Which is really awesome. That's why if you haven't read this book yet, you have to read it right away. :D
I've hated Sydney's dad from the beginning. Like what a d-bag. WHO DOES THAT!? Obviously not a good dad. I mean, if my dad did that to me, I'd just be pissed at him. Like all the time. Also, I don't really get why they were being so stingy with her. Like hey, come on. She's obviously an awesome alchemist. Also, Who replaces their family with some kid?! I guess her dad does, even though he's totally oblivious to the fact that Keith's a total douche.. lol. I guess same attracts same in this situation, am I right?
There is so much I could say about this book, but unfortunately only this much is spewing out of my brain and into my fingers. Which, might I say, almost never happens. So this is a good thing. :D Now to finish those other books I'm reading. Lol. SO BORING SOMETIMES.. Ugh. whatever. I'm sure they're awesome. (especially the zombie one. ;D)

The Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

First of all, What a weird ending. At first I was like. Aweh, that's cute. But by the last part of it, I was like. Wait. What? Did I read that right? Huh... lol. I really like this series. I actually like it better than the mortal instruments series, as surprising as that sounds. It's just that the mortal instruments series is so dragged out and long, even if it's so awesome I'm still reading it. You get what I mean, right?
I'm still not sure what that clockwork angel is for. I'm not sure if I'm ever going to find out, actually. It's strange. it's like sometimes it's just another hand me down, but sometimes it's a hero all by itself. Also, and this has nothing to do with the book, but I feel really smart with these 3D glasses I'm wearing right now with the lenses popped out.. I don't even know. Just thought I should say that right now.
Did they have camera's in the 1800's? Or whenever this book is supposed to be? I mean, I know it's supposed to be all steampunky and stuff, but I was really surprised at those mechanical bug things with camera's.. I had to ask around and look up if there were even camera's back then that weren't all huge and loud. which is crazy, right? It's fiction. I shouldn't even have to ask that. But still, I had to. lol. So yeah.
I'm serious about liking this series better, by the way. I mean, I can't put the other series down, but I can't put this one down EVEN MORE. If you know what I mean. It's kind of confusing. So I'm just going to leave it at that. :D AND NOW FOR SOME ADDS. Yaaay. Oh, one more thing. WHO WAS THE CLOCKWORK PRINCE?! I don't even know.

Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz

First of all, What an awesome book. It kept me interested the whole time I read it, and I really want to read the rest of the series now. I haven't really read anything like this before, I mean there's always things hunting the vamps, but not like this. I think it's cool how the blood was always the same in the characters, but I didn't really get how it worked. Was it family blood being passed down, or was it just reincarnation into the few families? Were they all the same people, or were they different people that just happened to be in the same family tree? That's what confused me.
The characters were interesting, They really made the story. I was kind of confused about the whole Schuyler's mom and Charles Force thing, but that was explained by the end. Pretty much everything I second guessed at the beginning of the book was resolved at the end. Which is always a good thing. I don't really have that many questions that need answering for this book. Yay!
Err. I don't know what else to say. I marked it five stars, which pretty much makes it awesome even before explaining why. :D Im not sure why humans in the school didn't notice the bright blue on their arms and the way they glow in the dark, I'd think that would be something I'd notice right away.. but that's alright. They probably just thought they were seeing things or something... But other than that there wasn't anything I didn't like about this book. It was awesome. :D You should definitely read it if you haven't already. :P Aaaaaand now for some adds. <3
