Review

this was a very original paranormal romance and one that it actually took me a while to work out what the para-normals were were. The para-normals were cleverly thought out, with a detailed lore and history along with a complex society system that breathed truth into the story. As seems to be her style the author drops you right into the middle of it with very little idea of what is going on. while i do appreciate this style it can mean it can take me a while to get into the flow of the book and unfortunately that was the case with this book. while at about half way through they explain most of what is happening i stayed confused throughout. which considering the mind frame of our main character could admittedly be almost seen as a good thing. the authors usual style of split POV’s was missing and that may have been the reason i did not connect with the characters as much as in her other books. all in all this was a very good book that i am only even slightly disappointed in because i came in with high expectations from this wonderful author.

In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.
When Kate Mercier’s parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life–and memories–behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.
Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate’s guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he’s a revenant–an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.

Review

the first time i read this book was as my first ebook squinting to try and read this on my phone… the next day i ran out and bought both this and the sequel because not only is the cover BEAUTIFUL but so is the book itself. on second reading i found this book no less enjoyable… while the majority of this book is set up and introduction, which may not be as good the second time around i still found it wonderfully enjoyable and have once again jumped right into the second book. the love connection is so realistic and sweet and i love the entire cast not just the two romantic leads.

Quotes

“Well, spit on my empty grave–if it ain’t the attack of the Disney princesses!”

Kate may have defeated her boyfriend’s nemesis, showing off her sword skills in the process, but Vincent is sure that she will be at risk as long as they stay together. What’s more, it’s becoming clear that their relationship might prevent him from fulfilling his true purpose: saving the lives of others.
They might have the romance of the century, but will that be enough?

Review

the story really gets stared in this dramatic and beautiful sequel. while things may have been set into motion in the first book this second book gives us all the information to see the bigger picture of this series. Throw in a shocking cliffhanger ending and you have a book i literally could not put down that has me chomping at the bit to see how this series ends… although i have my suspicions.

Quotes

“Still in one piece?” Vincent teased, pulling me close & planting a soft kiss on my lips. “After dirty-dancing with Jules, I’m not sure.”

 

“As Jules kissed my cheeks he whispered, “She has nothing on you, of course, Kates. It’s just that you’re so very…taken.”

 

“If “Flirt” qualified as a foreign language, my sister and Ambrose would both have PhDs in it.”

Set in the romantic and death-defying world of the international bestselling Die for Me trilogy, this digital original novella follows Jules, a brooding, immortal French artist who has fallen in love with his best friend’s girlfriend.

Jules Marchenoir is a revenant-an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save human lives. He’s spent the better part of the last century flirting his way through Paris, but when he met Kate Mercier, the heroine from Amy Plum’s Die for Me trilogy, he knew his afterlife had changed forever and he had found the love of his life. Until Kate fell for his best friend, Vincent. Now Jules is faced with an impossible decision: choosing between his loyal friend and a love truly worth dying for.

Review

as this story tells 2 books worth of information in under 100 pages it is no surprise that it feels rushed and that the story is told rather than experienced but there are some beautiful scenes which we can now see from Jules POV plus an extra paragraph after the end of Until i die that make you rush to pick up book 3… that paragraph changed what i thought the ending was ENTIRELY. on a side note … if i was not already in love with him this novella made me fall for Jules entirely… to the point i was actually hoping that he would win the girl off Vincent in the last book

Quotes

“She leaves an empty hole behind her. There was this feeling of optimism and joy in the house when she was around that’s now turned into void. Like Vincent, I feel hollow. Sad. And as the days pass, I begin to realize I’ve grown to care for Kate. Not as my best friend’s girlfriend, but as someone in and of herself. And I realize I miss her.”

 

“It’s with a feeling of despair that I return her to his arms. I want him to be angry. I want him to challenge me. Because then the truth will be out and I won’t have to hide my feelings. But he trusts me too much to suspect me. And I love him too much to hurt him.”

I will not lose another person I love. I will not let history repeat itself.
Vincent waited lifetimes to find me, but in an instant our future together was shattered. He was betrayed by someone we both called a friend, and I lost him. Now our enemy is determined to rule over France’s immortals, and willing to wage a war to get what they want.
It shouldn’t be possible, none of it should be, but this is my reality. I know Vincent is somewhere out there, I know he’s not completely gone, and I will do anything to save him.
After what we’ve already fought to achieve, a life without Vincent is unimaginable. He once swore to avoid dying—to go against his nature and forsake sacrificing himself for others—so that we could be together. How can I not risk everything to bring my love back to me?

Review

i hate to say it but i was a shade disappointed with this book. while i doubted that Kate would end up with Jules (who i am surprised to say i was cheering for after Die for Her) i was sort of hoping for there to be a little development there… because that is what i thought was suggested at the end of that novella. considering Vincent was killed  i was expecting a little more action in the beginning of the book to make up for the lack of romance… unfortunately instead we are given pages upon pages of “research” and reading books. that being said after that halfway mark things did get more exciting and although i foresaw the “Big Twist” i am still pleased with how the Author dealt with the issue. my other big complaint is to me at least the story did not feel quite finished with some loose ends still hanging… while others were wrapped up very quickly But at least Ambrose FINALLY got his act together maybe a spinoff is coming (focused around the “Numa” Louis)  or maybe i just need to close the book an except that this story continues without me.

Quotes

“Kate, I’ll say it like this. Vincent is my best friend. There’s not a person in this world I’m closer to. But for the past year, I have betrayed him in my heart every single day because I want for myself what he loves the very most.”

“The owner of the boom box marches over and turns the music down. He shrugs when he sees me staring. “Hey, noise pollution elicits fewer phone calls to the police than screaming and battle sounds. At least, that’s the case in Berlin,” he says.”

“Feelings change with time – or at least pain lessens with time; I know that from experience.”

“I understand it, but I don’t like it. I wish we could all be together like before: best friends, not heartbroken strangers.”

Kimberlee Schaffer may be drop-dead gorgeous… but she also dropped dead last year. Now she needs Jeff’s Help with her unfinished business, and she is not taking no for an answer.

When she was alive, Kimberlee wasn’t just a mean girl; she was also a complete kleptomaniac. So if Jeff wants to avoid being haunted until graduation, he’ll have to help her return everything she stole. But Jeff soon discovers it’s much easier to steal something than it is to bring it back.

Review

I went into it really wanting to like it. I loved the Wings series (particularly the end)and on hearing this book was about a ghost i was expecting some paranormal action… or something but on reading this i was surprised to find that the story would of pretty much worked if Kimberlee was just a normal teenager. that being said i really liked the relationship that developed between Kimberlee and Jeff and it was nice to see a boy/girl relationship that was not romantic. romance however was my problem with this book after the wonderful love triangle in wings i was underwhelmed while Jeff and Sera have the same easy feel to their relationship as Laurel and David did … it appears the author likes “perfect beautiful girls” with the “nerdy nice guy”. but i must say i was waiting for it to all fall apart… because i really did not like Sera as a character she was a flat goody goody **SPOILER** sure she had a past but it never really came into the story **END SPOILER** while i enjoyed the writing style and the feeling it lent to the book i was often jarred by finding out something had happened without my notice. only simple things like “still waiting for a red light” while i was still driving down the road, or “the bathroom being silent” when i thought we were in the hallway by the lockers. The other thing that i found disappointing is on reading the blurb:

“But Jeff soon discovers it’s much easier to steal something than it is to bring it back.”

I was expecting some sort of clever trick involving her stealing a heart or something but the story was much more straight forward then that. All in all a good enough book but not quite what i was expecting.

Review

I have had this book sitting on my shelf unread for 2 years… and that is one thing i really regret. when i bought it i am pretty sure it was in a 3 for the price of 1 sale and there were 2 other books that i really wanted so i chose the book with a pretty cover and then never looked at it again. fast forward 2 years and the 3rd book has just come out and i keep getting recommendations for it so i dutifully pull it off my shelf and start reading… and then don’t stop until i realize i am out of pages. having not even read the blurb before reading this i had no idea what i was getting myself into but i managed to stumble across a brilliant piece of Angel law unlike anything i have read before. not only is it a nice original story with a killer love triangle but unlike most Angel books it does not come off as overly preachy. the characters are not overly deep or anything but they were sweet and believable. The book ended in such a way that while i am can’t wait to read Hallowed. there was not a huge ugly evil cliff hanger, although i really want to know about poor Jeffery. this is one book i am defiantly glad that i judged on its cover.

Quotes

“So often we only do what we think is expected of us, when we are capable of so much more.”

“I feel like Cinderella sitting in the middle of the road with a pumpkin and a couple of mice, while Prince Charming charges off to rescue some other chick.”

“And what he was really saying then, what would have come through loud and clear if I hadn’t been so blind was, why don’t you see me?”

“So I’m in love. That crazy, forget to eat, float around in a daze, talk on the phone all night and bounce out of bed every morning hoping to see him kind of love.”

Clara Gardner knew that as a part angel she would one day have to fulfill her purpose, rescuing Christian from a forest fire…what she never considered was what might happen if she were to fail.

Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend Tucker, Clara must deal with the repercussions of what happened the day of the fire as the two boys vie for her heart. And, as she is drawn further into the world of angels and part angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, Clara learns of the terrifying new reality that she must face: someone close to her will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain after a shocking revelation, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning…

Review

I don’t know how she does it. just like in the first book the ending is given away in the beginning of the book and yet for the most part the book is not spoiled. i must admit i gathered most of the twists in this book before they were told to us directly unlike in the first book still that being said that was probably because the book was so well written that nothing just comes out of nowhere… i just picked up on the clues this time. this book had a real sence of finality to it and yet there is still another book in this series so maybe things are not as final as they seem. there are still some loose ends such as the identity of Angela’s secret Italian boyfriend, where exactly Jeffery is and what happens when the quarter angels have babies (1/16th angel?).

Quotes

“There’s nothing more inspiring than the complexity and beauty of the human heart.”

“Before I moved here, I never got the whole love-triangle thing. You know, in movies or romance novels or whatnot, where there’s one chick that all the guys are drooling over, even though you can’t see anything particularly special about her. But oh, no, they both must have her. And she’s like, oh dear, however will I choose? William is so sensitive, he understands me, he swept me off my feet, oh misery, blubber, blubber, but how can I go on living without Rafe and his devil-may-care ways and his dark and only-a-little-abusive love? Upchuck.”

“I sneaked out to his house a couple times in the middle of the night to watch over him while he slept, just in case, I don’t know, his comic book collection decided to spontaneously combust. This was dumb and admittedly creepy in an Edward Cullen kind of way”

“Our purpose on this earth is not one single event, an accomplishment we can check off a list. There is no test. No passing or failing. There’s only us, each moment shaping who we are, into what we will become.”

“I’m having an argument with myself. And I’m losing. So not good.”

Now she must decide whether she can trust Clara with her secret, or if telling her the truth will risk everything she cares about.

Alternating between Angela and Clara’s perspectives, Radiant chronicles the unforgettable summer that will test the bounds of their friendship and change their lives forever.

Review

ehh this book was ok but after really enjoying the last two books in the series i was really hoping for more. maybe part of the problem was that it was only a (very) short novella and she writes the longer stories better. maybe it is simply that i never enjoy these novellas quite as much as the proper books. or maybe like happens with all authors this was merely a dud. that being said it did answer some questions and the last sentence geared me right up to read Boundless.

(After reading Boundless I must say i Highly Suggest reading this book first despite only being a novella what happens in this book is referenced so much it is almost more important to the story than the first two books)

Quotes

“Humans fear death so much, but there is no death,” he whispers. “There is only the illusion of it. We can never cease to be. We must stay like this. Forever.”

The past few years held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner ever could have anticipated. Yet through the dizzying high of first love to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, the one thing she could no longer deny was that she was never meant to have a normal life.

Since discovering the special role she plays among the other angel-bloods, Clara has been determined to protect Tucker Avery from the evil that follows her . . . even if it means breaking both their hearts. Leaving town seemed like the best option, so she’s headed back to California—and so is Christian Prescott, the irresistible boy from the vision that started her on this journey in the first place.

As Clara makes her way in a world that is frighteningly new, she discovers that the fallen angel who attacked her is watching her every move. And he’s not the only one. . . . With the battle against the Black Wings looming, Clara knows she must finally fulfill her destiny. But it won’t come without sacrifices and betrayal.

In the riveting finale of the Unearthly series, Clara must choose her fate once and for all.

Review

WOW what an ending. I think this would have to be my favorite book of the set despite the odd pacing at the start. While there was not as much Tucker in this book as I would have liked Christian started to grow on me a little as he was given a little bit more depth, him and Clara however are defiantly missing that spark that I hope for in a romantic interest. So much happens in this book that you may not suspect having read the first two but it is all perfectly foreshadowed and although at first it failed to capture my attention by the end I could not put it down. This book was better balanced than the first two books with a wonderful mix of romance, action, angel lore and everyday drama. While there were some flaws in logic (mainly in wing colour) it managed to wrap this series off in a neat little bow, although leaving room for a spinoff and just enough loose strings to make it feel as if the characters live on after the last page.
Only recommendation left to give is to keep a box of tissues handy.

Quotes

“I can’t stop thinking about how much better she’d be for him than I am. But I also kind of want to tear her hair out.”

“I’m ready to stop saying good-bye to things. I’m going to start saying hello.”

“If we can send one man to the moon, why can’t we send them all there?”

“I love you,” he murmurs. “Can you feel that? You. Not some destiny I think I’m called to. You. I’m with you. My strength. My soul. My heart. Feel it.”

“Love is a many-splendored thing,” she says. “But it is also a pain in the ass.”

Review

WOW
this is one of the most amazing and most wonderfully original debuts i have read in ages. i admit i found the beginning a tad slow and i would giggle quietly to myself at every mention of smell because no other book i have read describes smell quite as much as this one But it did not take long before i was anxiously turning the pages to discover what happens next. This story is a story of modern day gladiators and of course killing wild animals is boring so instead they go up against some of the scariest paranormal creatures ever to haunt nightmares. highly recommended for lovers of The hunger games and paranormal fiction (duh). The characters were deep with even the minor characters having their quirks and back-stories while the main characters had secrets so deep they managed to keep them from each other and me as the reader, the story would often take turns so unexpected that i tripped in my haste to follow them but i was always pleasantly surprised as to where they led. While Logan’s stupidity at taking the job in the first place surprises me it is Almost believable given his circumstances. the ending was cruel even if deep inside me i did expect it… although mixed with this cruelty there was one kindness there is a sequel.

Is control over the elements a gift, or a curse?

Roxy thinks that she is in control of everything: with flames flaring at her fingertips and an equally fiery attitude, what more could she need? But then she meets Brae, a prince from a rival Realm, who turns her assumptions of superiority upside down.

Jasmine has none of Roxy’s confidence or intensity. But she does have a secret – and Brae – and she’s not going to give either up willingly.

Review

I would like to thank Heather James for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book starts with a bang but then it kind of fizzles until the second half when it is once again up and running. The story is told by two girls, Roxy and Jazz who in many ways could not be more different. Roxy comes from the cruel hellion realm where everything is bright, passionate and fiery. Jazz comes from the peaceful Arcan Realm where religion is highly valued and colour is rarely worn. When events pull both of these girls towards Brae, prince of the Arcans they may find they are not so different after all. This book is quite well written particularly for a self-published debut novel, however there were some things (for me at least) that fell a little flat. While the realms were wonderfully thought out each being given their intricacies it almost made them a little flat with each realm being quite specific in their personalities, this led to a few characters blending. The book itself reminded me in many ways of the “Avatar the last air bender” series which given how much I love that series is not such a bad thing. And I must say I am curious as to where this story will be taken in the next book. I loved the development of Roxy but I felt as if I didn’t get to know Jazz or Brae quite as much as I would have liked. The lack of reaction when her secret came out, I must admit surprised me, but perhaps this is merely being addressed in the next book.

I would like to thank CM Doporto for giving me a free digital copy of Element, Part 1 in exchange for an honest review.
when I read the synopsis for this book I knew it was going to be new and different… in that respect I was not disappointed although I felt this ended just as it was really starting to get good. While the plot (so far) is intriguing I was a little disappointed with the romance. it felt too much like insta-love for me (although I am sure there is a perfectly good reason for that ready to be explained in the next book) to me Doporto’s true strength lies in her “action” sequences with them pulling me right in. unfortunately I did not find this so much in the conversation sections of the book… which is probably why I got irritated with some of the side characters… besides mentioning how beautiful the cover is (because just look at it) the only thing I have left to say is despite the minor blips (such as random POV changes, may be better if it was more evenly split rather than 2 inserts starting halfway through the book ) I found in this book I am still left chomping at the bit for the next instalment and really isn’t that what is important

BOOK VS MOVIE : Twilight

In honour of the release of the movie release of one of my favourite books The Host. I will be starting a new… segment… books VS movies. we all know that

“the movie is never as good as the book”

… although some do come pretty close… and in rare cases I have found the exception that makes the rule (although in these cases it is usually movies that become books rather than books released as movies) there is always the question of which one you experience first.

Now as i have not seen the Host movie yes i am going to start off with the book to movie of Meyer’s best known book Twilight.

  Twilight VS  twilight

Now for me this is an easy choice… mostly because the movie sucked… in fairness I have found that the movies have improved with each addition but that does not change the fact that the first one was not much to start with. I disagreed with most of the casting in this… I never agreed with Pattinson as Edward and like most people it did not take long before Stewart was annoying the crap out of me. It has become a well accepted fact that most of the crap that this series gets spawns from this movie (or at least most of the crap that does not spawn because of the annoying twihards). In all fairness one of the main reasons this movie did not work was that the vast majority of this book happens in bella’s head. without Bella’s descriptions of Edward and her inner monologue all you are left with is the creepy guy who watches her through windows before kidnapping her and nearly killing her… yeah sorry not working for me. When you add in the “interesting” choices in lighting and tone (Did anyone else notice that the vast majority of this film is BLUE…? I know it is called “Twilight” but that is taking it too far). Compare these two cafeteria photos.

 

What it really looks like

What it really looks like

in the movie

In the movie

When you add in the fact that Pattinson HATES Edward and so therefore plays him as a guy who hates himself this movie loses all the magic that was in the book (and yes for a long time this was one of my favourites and I still enjoy to read it sometimes) I can still remember how Excited I was when this movie came out and how disappointed I was when I walked out of the cinema.

Now although I have ragged out this movie I do need to give them some credit for what they did RIGHT.

1st Ashley Greene made the PERFECT Alice (which is lucky because if she wasn’t I would NOT have been happy

2nd Cam Gigandet made a great James, the perfect mix between deliciously evil and bad boy hot, making climax of the movie actually climatic… although I admit I was disappointed when he had to die (despite what the book says)

3rd… actually most of the minor characters were cast well. notably Charlie, Carlisle, Esme, Jasper and well the Cullen family in general.  

Still despite this (at least for me) the movie still falls short.

but don’t let me tell you what to think.

2) the wearwolves are wearwolves
… you get the point. not only that but the newly created paranormal creatures are interesting as well. this book became the first thing i bought online because i loved it so much and could not find it anywhere.the story is broken nicely with humour that is cleverly belivable despite how weird the quotes may be without the context.

This is one of those books i enjoyed more the second time I read it. The first time I was kind of screaming at Evie for her stupid choices… but this time I read it and I got them. Finding out your boyfriend is immortal is bound to mess with your head. And under these conditions i can understand where she comes from completely. While not as good as the first this book pulls me in and makes me anxious to read the next chapter in this amazing series.

my first thought when i picked up was (… ok i admit it was oooh pretty but right after that)the name doesn’t match the other 2 in the series (i started calling it lendlessly see what i did there)… but once i started reading it i completely forgot about the name. this is a beautiful conclusion to the series but i admit i may be a tad disappointed with how they delt with Lends immortality… although it is refreshingly different way. (spoiler)  with the discovery of Evei’s ability to grow her own soul based on love i fully expected her to be able to last for as long as she was with lend… rather then him losing his immortality… at least i think he did everything was happening so fast at the end and (End spoiler) it was 3 am by the time i finished, it’s not like i could put the book down. my only complaint is that everything ended to happily… i was expecting more of a tragically beautiful ending like the real ending of Destined by Aprilynne Pike but we all know i was way to invested in the characters to be actually disappointed.

on a side note i have decided that Evei’s choice to only take “parts” of the soul is sooo much creepier that Vivian taking the whole thing. if we look at the souls as just life energy my first thought is the torcher machine from The Princess Bride or if we look at it as actually souls first thought is Voldemort and his horcrux’s … either way sooo creepy and not soo good…
