My thoughts: 

I got to say, when i finished this book i was soooooo disappointed in it. This book is nothing but resident evil but instead of zombies its cyborgs. I started to read this book because prequel, REBIRTH, was getting a lot of  good reviews…. Well, i didn’t read that part that said it was a prequel, i thought it was a sequel. So i read it, but i was a little skeptical just because it was by Keary Taylor.  At the end West is infected and they are trying to treat him, but you never really find out if he servives or not. You kinda get the idea that he will make it but never get a yes or no. I gave this book a 3 out of 5 stars on goodreads.com No i dont recommend it

My thoughts:

I got to say i liked reading this book. I have given this book a 4 out of 5 stars on goodreads.com I have always liked to read or see movies that involve kings and queens, sword fighting, bows and arrows. Im just that kind of girl. 😀 i cant really say what my favorite part of this book is because i like all of it. I didnt expect the beginning at all. One thing that was like OMG really! was the fact that every group of man that she came to be apart of would have at least 1 of them fall in love with her. promising her a great life if she chose them. But she dose fall for one but i aint going to say who, but i saw it coming. Book number 2 is to come out in November and i can’t wait to read it. For the “Prophesy” is that she must go with King Corin and give up her love for __________. HAHAHAHA  you thought i was gonna tell yeah ,but noooo lol enjoy

Currently reading:

The Crown of Embers By Rae Carson

Fire and Thorns Book #2

Characters:

Elisa: the chosen one, carries the godstone

Hector: Elisas  head of the royal guard

ximena: Elisas gardian

Mara: Elisas lady and waiting

About the book:

With Alejandro dead, Elisa must be a Queen. But the war isnt over.  The Animagus still want the queen. Now someone is trying to kill Elisa wail others are trying to kidnap her.

But Ximena has other plans, she want  Hector for Elisas older sister. Now Hector has been kidnaped in an attempt to get Elisa to willingly become a sacrifice.

My thoughts:

I loved this book! Gave it a 5 out of 5 star of goodreads. Wish i can give a lot more detail about both books but it would be giving the whole story away. Ever since the first book I felt like Hector and Elisa would have some kind of love connection. Even if it had no clue that it would ever happened. I absolutely loved this book. You get the idea who is behind everything, but its a great read and this book left with a Cliff hanger with Hector been taken and Elisa writing to his father for Hectors hand in marriage. release date hasn’t been given for the last book but im guessing it wont be out till september of 2013. cant wait!!!

Girl of Fire and Thorns By Rae Carson

Fire and Thorns, book #1

THIS BOOK REVIEW HAS SPOILERS! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

CHARACTERS:

Alejandro: King of Joya d’Arenas

Hector: King Alejandros head guard

Humberto: Cosmes brother, falls in love with Elisa, protects her

The fearther in she is taken into the desert that harder its going to be finding her. Now Elisa learns even more about King Alejandro and the war that never ended.

MY THOUGHTS:

I got to say, i really enjoyed this book and recommend it a lot. I have it a 4 out of 5 stars on goodreads.com Just because the hole “got shined his light on you and there it was, the godstone”  The godstone is in the bellybutton, and it has powers that Elisa is still trying to figure out.  Something about that just sounded a bit silly. But i love to read  this book. King Alejandro is a wimp so it didn’t serprise me what happened to him at the end. I recommend this book. You get a lot in this book, a lot of characters a lot of places but its great loved it recommend it.

About the book:

Now she must ask those from the afterlife she stood trail for, to help her save Alex. Or will it be to late.

My thoughts:

I got to say this book was better then both the first book and the last. It really had me thinking about what Jessica could do to save Alex. I found myself coming up with different ways. I did not expect the solution that she ended up doing. I have given this book 4 out of 5 stars on goodreads.com I still wouldn’t really recommend this series. Its enjoyable but no. I also like how Coles character has changed a lot. He has finally let go of his past. I have also decided that i will not be reading Coles point of view The After Life.

As of right know Im not really sure what book I will be reading next. As i have mentioned before I am currently working on making some jewelry for a show case I will be having in November. That right now is my main focus. But will have time  to read books al i need is to find a good book to read. If you have suggestions feel free to contact me and recommend books.

Forsaken By Keary Taylor

Fall of Angels Book 2

“If you can’t be judged, what are you willing to do to save him?”

THIS REVIEW HAS SPOILERS, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Characters:

Jessica: dreams about angels

Alex: grandson of the owners house jessica is staying at, falls for Jessica

Cole: leader of the condemned angels, wants Jessica

Cormack: angel sent to find Cole

Emily: Jessicas friend

About the book:

Cole let Jessica know that Alex was going to propose the night she was taken. Now that Cole is gone and Alex gets to spend more time with the living, Jessica is wondering why he hasn’t proposed. Now the council is looking for Cole, they want him back. As Alex, Jessica and Cormack try to find Cole, they learn why he was after Jessica.  As well as to why Alex wont propose to Jessica.

My thoughts:

I got to say that i found myself skimming / skipping parts of this book a lot more then the first one.  This book is written in both Alex and Jessica’s point of view. The book constantly kept telling you how the other one felt, It felt like a never ending book. The reason  I decided to read this book was to see how it ended. I guess that no matter how bad a book is, you always want to see how it ends. I also have hopes that it will get better. But the characters, in this book, just pissed me off.  I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars on goodreads.com I don’t really recommend this series/trilogy. But i have read all 3 books

Destroy Me By: Tehereh Mafi

“The life I know is the only one that matters. The suffocation, the luxury, the sleepless nights, and the dead bodies. I’ve always been taught to focus on power and pain, gaining and infliction.”

 

THIS REVIEW HAS SPOILERS, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Characters:

Juliette- main character, can not be touched, put in an asylum to protect others from her

Adam-  a solder, falls for Juliette, is the only one that can touch her

Warner- leader of sector 45, wants to use Juliette as a weapon

Kenji- Adams under cover solder friend, part of the Omega Point

*The Reestablishment- bad guys

*Omega Point- good guys, under ground

About the book:

Warner is hurt, he has been shot. Word has gotten out to all his solders, but worst of all… his father. Know his father has made it clear that Juliette will be killed, to prove a point. Warner spends most of his time reading Juliettes notebook. He cant stop thinking about her, he wants her love.

My thoughts:

I got to say this book was short but I LOVED it. This book brings you to the mind of the man who has taken Juliette to use her as a weapon. I love to read books of series and trilogy from the “Bad”  or another characters point of view. Makes the story, I say, better.  In Shatter Me, Warner is made out to be the worst man, but reading his point of view, he seems a lot more forgiving. He sees the whole picture unlike his father who just kills to get people to fear him. Example of this is in the first book, Warner kills one of his solders. In this book you read more about why he did it. The man he killed was abusing his wife and children. So he killed him. When his father found out, he had this solders wife killed along with the 3 children.

I love Taherehs writing a lot. Its perfect. Its amazing. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars, just because i thought it was short. I really like that Warner wasn’t as bad of a guy that he was mad out to be. I can not wait till book 2 comes out! Feb. 5th is a long time to wait. But its going to be well worth it.

Branded By: Keary Taylor

 

THIS BOOK REVIEW HAS SPOILERS, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

 

CHARACTERS:

Jessica: dreams about angels

Sal: Jessicas neighbor

Alex: grandson of the owners house jessica is staying at, falls for Jessica

Cole: leader of the condemned angels, wants Jessica

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Or will she go with Cole who will make living in Hell a better life.

MY THOUGHTS:

I got to say i was quite disappointed in this book. It was quite boring and long. well at least it felt long. I found myself skimming a lot of the time. At times i even skipped paragraphs. It was also predictable except  for the part when you learn why she had been feeling sick and the reason why she started to have the dreams she was having. That i will not give away because sadly enough its probably the best part of the book. I have given it 3 out of 5 stars on goodreads.com But even if i have given it a low rating I do still want to read the next 2 books that come after. In hopes that they are a better read. Enjoy
