Book Review: Archagel's Blade by Nalini Singh

The severed head marked by a distinctive tattoo on its cheek should have been a Guild case, but dark instincts honed over hundreds of years of life compel the vampire Dmitri to take control. There is something twisted about this death, something that whispers of centuries long past...but Dmitri's need to discover the truth is nothing to the vicious strength of his response to the hunter assigned to decipher the tattoo.

Savaged in a brutal attack that almost killed her, Honor is nowhere near ready to come face to face with the seductive vampire who is an archangel's right hand, and who wears his cruelty as boldly as his lethal sensuality...the same vampire who has been her secret obsession since the day she was old enough to understand the inexplicable, violent emotions he aroused in her.

As desire turns into a dangerous compulsion that might destroy them both, it becomes clear the past will not stay buried. Something is hunting...and it will not stop until it brings a blood-soaked nightmare to life once more...

Book Review

wow! This book is really delicious! mmm...

I am never a Dmitri fan I never I mean he always makes cameo appearances in the first 3 books and i pretty don't know much anything about him. He is just a well... a vampire. but in this book we get to meet and know Dmitri in a different kind of light.

first off. I never would have thought that Dmitri was a father, and not just a father but a very loyal and sweet husband. Maybe If i haven't read this book I would have never ever thought that he has this kind of personality that I would never thought the he would possess, and at the very end of the book I fell in love with Dmitri's character. I mean i still have my eye on bluebell but Dmitri's character was a really great shocker for me, cause it is just too hard to absorb that he still has humanity in him and I never would have imagine that he is this very loving and gentle character.

as for our gal Honor. well I like Honor cause she survived all the traumatic experiences she went through and at first I just thought that she and Dmitri has this attraction cause they both went through the same stuff but the revelation in the end was really amazing. kyaaaaaa!! oh my gosh Nalini Singh! you are one AMAZING writer.

I really like how this book is written, i think Nalini Singh is the only author that can deliver such sexual tension in her characters. ooohhh! this book was written very well indeed. Part of me is Happy that I've read this book another art of me is sad cause I wanna read the next book sooooo bad! ooohhh I wonder what will happen to elana and raphael and of course Bluebell... eeppp.. eppp. I'll try to read psy-changeling just to help me get over this madness with this series.

oh yeah this is my fave part of the book.

Book Review: Obsidian by Jeniffer L. Armentrout

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Book Review

I have encountered A lot of YA drool worthy boys, like erm... let's see ahm a Hot Vampire *check* , A hot Werewolf *check* , a Hot Shadowhunter *check*, A hot Slayer *check* , A hot faerie *check*( ok,ok stop with the Fangirling) but I have never ever encountred a hot, drool worthy *coughs* Alien!?

Obsidian is the second novel from Jenifer L. Armentrout the author the Covenant series, I am not actually a huge fan of of the covenant series cause the book is the exact same clone of the Vampire Academy series, just different names for the Characters. so I was a bit skeptical if I should read this one, an oh the aliens being gorgeous is kinda intriguing so I was a bit curious so i decided to give this one a try.

the book wasn't much first just the same ole story of a very average girl who happens to bumped along strange creatures. What really caught my attention is that the main heroine has really something in common with me, like duh, she has a book blog and she likes YA books, so yeah the main heroine serves as my anchor when I was reading the book.

But it turns out that the book was great the plot is original, unlike the author's previous one, and I find myself really sucked in to the book, like every page is really gripping and I was introduced to a lot of foreign stuff about aliens cause it seems like i really have zero knowledge about them. It turns out that not all aliens are green and slimy some of them are HOT! oh YES HOT! I mean Daemon is like... like... gosh i have three words for you SWEET.BABY.JESUS! Crap ohhh Crap! hahahaha!

i really like how the book ended I mean a lot of debut book of the series it always end up that the boy always get the girls affection and they live happily ever after, but Obsidian's ending was different, never have I expected that the ending would be like that. HMMM. so i am most definitely looking forward for the next book cause some psychic part of me is saying that it would be filled with A LOT OF STEAMY AND HOT SCENES ***KYAAA***

Book Review: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Synopsis from Goodreads

Magic is dangerous--but love is more dangerous still.

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by--and torn between--two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

Book Review

This is gonna be somehow a very selfish review cause I will compare this book to the Mortal Instruments series, cause this is the prequel of the book right? so somehow when I was reading this I compare everything to the mortal Instruments. so don't read this review if you think I am one Selfish B**** >:)

this book was set in Victorian England wherein Shadowhunters have English accent (sexy Right?) haha! just kidding. we get to meet our heroine Tessa Gray who has an ability to shape shift in any form and not just only that but she get to have an access on the minds of the person she's replicating to. so first thought about this book is that I was expecting it to be really action packed just as I felt when I first read COB. It turns out that it is action packed but it just took a bit wee too long for it to come maybe like the near ending. I feel like the first couple of pages of this book was full of dialogues and blabbering not much seems to be happening as I was reading it. so maybe I've got 2 hot guys to drool for (Will and Jem) I was actually expecting Will to be like Jace like maybe to have some kinda strak of a bad boy attitude but it turns out that Will's Character is a mystery and a bit restrained like I really don't know what to think of him I can't even give a one word description on who Will is. as for Jem, well I really like Jem. GOSH! he is like described as this oriental God with an English accent!! OOOHHHH!! what is so not to like and I really like his back story on what happened to him on China. it's a bit sad. and I can say that Jem's character is honest , caring and very straight forward. hmmm my type of guy. :P

as for the plot, ad I've said I can't make much out of it at first but as I read on everything becomes clearer and more concrete, the whole book starts stirring by maybe on page 350, cause everything was eventually revealed at that point of the book, what I really appreciate about the plot is that it is filled with twists and treachery. Never have I expected that the story would turn out like that. what I guess the downside of this book is the ending and the Romance aspect, I really don't know if I am rooting for the love interest in this book, hmmm... I mean I fangirl like really a lot on Jace and Clary and Simon. But on this book Nada.Zero.Nothing. I am not rooting for tessa X Will nor Tessa X Jem. meh.

Overall: it is a great read, worth the money and reading time. But I have to say that I like the Mortal Instruments more than this one, although this is a great read I would still prefer Jace,Clary,Simon,Izzy,Alec and Magnus. *wink*

Book Review: Ruthless by Sara Shepard

Synopsis from Goodreads

For years scandal has rocked Rosewood, Pennsylvania—and high school seniors Aria, Emily, Hanna, and Spencer have always been at the center of the drama. They’ve lost friends, been targeted by a ruthless stalker named A, and narrowly escaped death. And it’s not over yet.

Aria’s love life is on the fritz. Emily’s exploring her wild side. Hanna’s kissing the enemy. And someone from Spencer’s past—someone she never thought she’d see again—is back to haunt her.

But none of that compares to what happened last spring break. It’s their darkest secret yet and guess who found out? Now A is determined to make them pay for their crime, and the only thing scarier than A is the fear that maybe, just maybe, they deserve what’s coming to them.

Book Review

WOW! I really can't believe I have read the 10th book of the PLL series, as all of you have known I am not a huge fan of the Previous book, (twisted) i just feel that the 4 girls of Rosewood is as annoying as will ever be. But yeah, I really can't resist reading PLL cause it is one of my fave mystery/chick lit book, i just wish that Sara Shepard just ended the series @ Heartless *Sighs*

anyways. what to say about the book, I would really like to point out that it is really nice that Ezra Fitz was back in this book, besides from I love the chemistry between Ian Harding and Lucy Hale in the TV series, I happen to like them first on the book, so I was I really thrilled that Aria X Ezra is back. But if you have read some book of the PLL series this one still contains the same element like having bitch fights , non-stop hook ups and of course the never oh-so undead A is still lingering in this book, (Sheesh she is so darn indestructible!) but I have to say that this one is better than the first cause I guess some characters have really grown up, but they still have the inner Ruthlessness to themselves, I mean these girls will just do about ANYTHING just to get away their misbehavior.

In a way I did enjoy reading this one, although it took me like 4 days to finish it, i still like the mystery in the book I really don't know who A is now, GOSH! i really have to come up with my own theory sooner or later. >:) I'm still looking forward for the next books to come. :D

Book Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Synopsis from Goodreads

Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war-- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

Book Review

I was a bit disappointed with this book, cause it seems like i really have high hopes for this particular book, it seems to create a real buzz in the YA Lit world. Many of my friends in goodreads seem to like the book so much they even gave it a 5/5 star rating.

the book is actually like X-Men, we met a character named Juliette who seems to have a lethal touch, everything she touch will die. I would just like to say that Juliette is like the first female main character I encountered wherein I actually consider her a SAINT, she is the nicest person i have ever as in EVER have met! who would take blame to something that you didn't do? Juliette will! I was actually expecting a character so provocative and bad ass in this book, cause it seems like Juliette has been through a lot. you can just tell by reading her thoughts on the beginning of the book, I guess i would've consider her CRAZY. Just by reading through her thoughts, and i kinda feel sorry for her. her ability did really make her kinda demented and downright creepy.

as for the plot of the book, well it seems very cliche and everything. Girl meets Boy and Villain secretly fancies the main heroine. ermmm. the middle part of the book was actually a bit exciting, cause i really have no idea how will the story will go on. I was actually making a mental note to myself that I'll actually will give the book 4 stars, but as the story goes on, everything is just so typical. the ending was a bit simple and flat nothing to keep me on the edge and wanting for the next book to come out. I guess the only redeeming factor of the book is the romance aspect of the book. I like Adam and Juliette's intimacy. very wholesome yet will make you pant. :P

Lurve these blogs! ^^
