Reading Friday (1)

   
   Reading Friday is hosted by The Bookshelves.



 Reading Wednesday is a Bookish Meme hosted by The Bookshelves, where you share what book(s) you recently finished,currently reading,and what's next. A meme for your bookish thought! :)

 This Friday I Finished: Lost In Time by Melissa de La Cruz. And my thought on it were that its was so GREAT! Purely amazing and I'm so so mad at Melissa de La Cruz for waiting till 2013 for the next book:"The Gate of Paradise". Its was such a great rebound over Misguided Angel,since I wasn't a fan of it and I LOVED this one. Schuyler,Jack,Mimi,Kingsely,and Allegra collided in an Epic Romace Novel for any vampire and the stakes were higher than ever!!!:) I'll be posting up a review soon!


Then I'm Currently Reading: Clarity by Kim Harrignton and The Fox Inheritence by Mary E. Pearson (ARC). My thoughts on Clarity I love it with the awesome character Clare and the chilly,murder mystery! And the guys bossy and my guess is that he was the one who killed Victoria Happel! I really recommend it to anyone!!
 As for The Fox Inheritence I'm on page one ,pretty cool,interesting concept!




My Future Read Is: My next book I'll be reading is either Wither by Lauren DeStefano or either A Mango Shaped Space by Wendy Mass. Can't decide!!!


Excited for this week's book reading!!!! And What's Your Reading Friday?

WoW (1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a Book Meme hosted by Breaking the Spine


Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Here's a Blub on What ITs ABOUTWeird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie’s always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is a mermaid, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she's falling for a shape-shifter, and she's the only person who can see through paranormals' glamours, but still. Normal.

Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal

    This week's Waiting on Wednesday is Paranormalcy by Kriesten White. I've been dying to get this book!!! :) It came out in paperback already so I plan to hop over to my Barnes and Noble and so get it!! I should like a really cool and amazing, rich, paranormal book people been buzzing about and recommendation I revieved I will get it! And love the really intriging title and cover! :) And I've been really wanting a great Paranormal Romance book after dropping off on Fallen by Lauren Kate... :( I hope this book cures it!! :D

Leave a link to your Waiting on Wednesday.... :D

Teser Tuesday #3

  



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My Teaser Tuesday is from  Divergent by Veronica Roth

   Here's a little mash-up on what is about from Goodreads:
Beatrice "Tris" Prior has reached the fateful age of sixteen, the stage at which teenagers in Veronica Roth's dystopian Chicago must select which of five factions to join for life. Each faction represents a virtue: Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, and Erudite. To the surprise of herself and her selfless Abnega'
tion family, she chooses Dauntless, the path of courage. Her choice exposes her to the demanding, violent initiation rites of this group, but it also threatens to expose a personal secret that could place in mortal danger. Veronica Roth's young adult Divergent trilogy launches with a captivating adventure about love and loyalty playing out under most extreme circumstances.

I'm actually reading It! And its great!
And here's my teaser:)

 "What's going on? she says. "How are simulations going.?
                   "Really well," I nod a few times. "A lttle too well,I hear.
"Ah."
"Please understand," I say quietly."What does it mean to be...." I hesitate.


So what's Your Teaser Tuesday? Leave a link!! :)

Book Review: The Second Short Life of Bree Tanner by Stephanie Meyer

The Second Short Life of Bree Tanner by Stephanie Meyer 
010 by Little Brown Books for Young Readers
Hardcover, 178 pages
Published June 5th 2010 by Little Brown Books for Young Read 2
Sypnosis:Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by this riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character first introduced in Eclipse, and the darker side of the newborn vampire world she inhabits.
In another irresistible combination of danger, mystery, and romance, Stephenie Meyer tells the devastating story of Bree and the newborn army as they prepare to close in on Bella Swan and the Cullens, following their encounter to its unforgettable conclusion.
Bree Tanner can barely remember life before she had uncannily powerful senses, superhuman reflexes and unstoppable physical strength. Life before she had a relentless thirst for blood... life before she became a vampire.
   All Bree knows is that living with her fellow newborns has few certainties and even fewer rules: watch your back, don't draw attention to yourself and, above all, make it home by sunrise or die. What she doesn't know: her time as an immortal is quickly running out.
Then Bree finds an unexpected friend in Diego, a newborn just as curious as Bree about their mysterious creator, whom they know only as "her". As they come to realize that the newborns are pawns in a game larger than anything they could have imagined, Bree and Diego must choose sides and decide whom to trust. But when everything you know about vampires is based on a lie, how do you find the truth? (Goodreads Blurb)


                                                         
My Feeling..... & The Book.....

Okay, all you Twilight-haters might be surprised that I actually read a Stephanie Meyer book and liked it is KINDA STRANGE,right??? o_o But I admit it was good even with all my really stressful decision and though...I bought it..^^ 
  And after reading it I was so surprised, Bree was sort different to Bella, Stephanie Meyer's writing was good, and it was a good read, though it took me 8 days to finish this novella, meaning.... I really wasn't in a mood for it. :D I actually like that Bree was a book-lover (like me!) ^^ and she wasn't in love like Bella with the all obsessed thing with her and Edward, even with a hint of romance... which I enjoyed.. :)

My Book Review......
Bree Tanner can't imagine the power flowing inside her body, intense and powerful senses, and the fact she's a newborn. Bree is very subtle and keeps things for herself,especially in her clan lead by Riley whom hold secrets that tests Bree's abilities.

Then, she meets Diego. a newborn just like her whom is as curious and together they discover who "her" is. But as time comes, Bree's abilities are tested and its a whole new field filled with tragedy, betray, and Bree and Diego have to find who they must trust to win. But when everything you know about vampires is based on a lie, how do you find the truth?



Overall it was a good book and I actually liked it,so......


3 Balloons! :)

Book Review: Captivate by Carie Jones

Captivate by Carrie Jones
Hardcover, 273 pages
Published January 5th 2010 by Bloomsbury USA
Sypnosis:Zara and her friends knew they hadn't solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king's needs grow deeper every day he's stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. It's made him vulnerable. And now there's a new king in town.

A turf war is imminent, since the new pixie king, Astley, is moving in quickly. Nick nearly killed him in the woods on day one, but Zara came to his rescue. Astley swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he's one of the good guys. Nick isn't buying it, though Zara isn't as sure -- despite herself, she wants to trust the new king. But it's a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It's her life -- and his.


My Thoughts....& Other Things....
Carrie Jones did it AGAIN! She is such a great writer that Captivate overshadowed Need!
It so ADDICTING to just read Captivate! More steamy romance, awesome Zara and her groupie, and a chilfhanger in the ennding!! This book was so right and purely AWESOME! Carrie Jones made you show what she has and just makes you go like "WHY!?", "Nooooo.WHY CARRIE JONES!!", and you know she isn't afraid of writing what she wants and makes you go like:OMG! NO!

 I just can keep reading her books,especially since it makes you devour them within a day!!! :) Eveveything is great, like the witty and strong Zara, the bubbly Issie, the know it all and half eagle Devyn, and Astley a guys who just like Nick but a pixie. When Astely was introduced I was like:"NOOOOooo! Another guy???!!" but he's really some important person...if you've read the book.. :D Just lots of funny things with a Astley and Nick... :)

And in the end my jaw dropped and I was just wanted to laugh out loud, be angry, since all her books have emotional ending (the good one!)


My Review.....
So Captivate really picked up after Need, the pixies and Zara's freaky stalker who turns out to be a pixie. Things are overtaking Zara like round up pixies and locking them, and Astley who just crawls into her life, Zara has a BIG problem. The pixies who seem to slip one by one out of the metal house and a choice that makes Zara to side with Astley.
 Is Zara making the wrong choices?
Find out in Captivate.......

After reading this I was CAPTIVATED!!!! And in the end, I'm so TEAM Astley! :) Then I so forgot about Nick....and its so Zara and Astley!!! A way better sequel than the first and a recommendation to pixie lovers or paranormal romance this books IS FOR YOU! :) 

5 stars! So GOOD! :)
