Here's my review for Darkest Powers Trilogy by Kelley Armstrong.
My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.
All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don't even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost - and the ghost saw me.
Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won't leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a "special home" for troubled teens. Yet the home isn't what it seems. Don't tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is, whose side are they on? it's up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House...before its skeletons come back to haunt me My opinion
What can I
say? I loved this books. Most of the time I don’t like it when the characters
are only fifteen or younger (seventeen is the perfect age for me). Because most
of the time fifteen year olds are still immature and it can annoy me like hell.
But not this time, I really like Chloe as a character. Also the plot was well
worked out, I can’t recall a moment that I wanted to put down this books! But
at the end of the third book there were still some loose ends. Did the author
do this on purpose? Id don’t know. And then the characters, like I already have
said, I liked Chloe. She’s hones, funny, sometimes a bit naïve (but who isn’t),
forgiving and very loyal to her friends and family. Tory is as spoiled as hell,
but still at the end of the books I liked her. I think she grew on me during
the books. And then you have the brothers Derek and Simon. Simon is the sweet
one, the cute one, the funny one… in short the perfect boy. Derek on the other
hand is dark, mysterious and most of the time cynical. Still if I could choose
between the two of them, I would choosehim. He just has something more that Simon misses.
So if you are looking for something to read and you haven’t read this books yet
than you shoulddefinitely give them a
First of all I want to explain why I'm posting so little these days. I'm going to college and in December the semester ends, so everyone is giving us a lot of assignments. On top of that my days are very long, so at the end of the day I'm exhausted. So that's why I read and blog so little these days. But in February (I know it's 2 months) I will be back completely and in the mean time I will try to post as much as I can.
And now the real thing: the books I've read in November!
The Summoning (Darkest Powers #1) - Kelley Armstrong The Awekening (Darkest Powers #2) - Kelley Armstrong The Reckoning (Darkest Powers #3) - Kelley Armstrong Nightfall (The Vampire Diaries: The Return #1) - L.J. Smith Onyx (Lux #2) - Jennifer Armentrout A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle #1) - Libba Bray
The review for Darkest Powers is comming, I hope to post him this week. Which books have you read this month?

Another review today for books that are written by Simone Elkeles.
Nothing has been the same since Caleb Becker left a party drunk, got behind the wheel, and hit Maggie Armstrong. Even after months of painful physical therapy, Maggie walks with a limp. Her social life is nil and a scholarship to study abroad—her chance to escape everyone and their pitying stares—has been canceled.
After a year in juvenile jail, Caleb’s free...if freedom means endless nagging from a transition coach and the prying eyes of the entire town. Coming home should feel good, but his family and ex-girlfriend seem like strangers.
Caleb and Maggie are outsiders, pigeon-holed as "criminal" and "freak." Then the truth emerges about what really happened the night of the accident and, once again, everything changes. It’s a bleak and tortuous journey for Caleb and Maggie, yet they end up finding comfort and strength from a surprising source: each other.
Paradise was a lot more complex than How To Ruin. What if you neighborhit you with his car and ran away? And to
make it worse you were in love with him. This is exactly what happened to
Maggie and Caleb. When they meet again after he got out of prison, she thinks
that ignoring him will help. But it turns out that he’s the only one who really
understands through what she’s going. But there is something bigger than the
accident that is keeping them apart. A big secret Caleb never can tell anyone ,
not even Maggie.So I think you can see
what I meant with complex. But you don’t need to think that this books were
depressing, because they weren’t. the book was still full of funny parts, which
we can expect from books by Simone Elkeles. And the characters weren’t whinny
like they would have been in other books. On the contrary they were strong and
learned from each other’s mistakes and problems. And like always the boy was
swoon worthy. This are definitely booksyou have to read if you liked Pushing the Limits by Katy McGarry and
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles.
Another book that I've read a long time ago, but here's the review.
Moshav? What’s a moshav? Is it “shopping mall” in Hebrew? I mean, from what Jessica was telling me, Israeli stores have the latest fashions from Europe. That black dress Jessica has is really awesome. I know I’d be selling out if I go with the Sperm Donor to a mall, but I keep thinking about all the great stuff I could bring back home. Unfortunately for 16-year-old Amy Nelson, “moshav” is not Hebrew for “shopping mall.” Not even close. Think goats, not Gucci. Going to Israel with her estranged Israeli father is the last thing Amy wants to do this summer. She’s got a serious grudge against her dad, a.k.a. “Sperm Donor,” for showing up so rarely in her life. Now he’s dragging her to a war zone to meet a family she’s never known, where she’ll probably be drafted into the army. At the very least, she’ll be stuck in a house with no AC and only one bathroom for seven people all summer—no best friend, no boyfriend, no shopping, no cell phone… Goodbye pride—hello Israel.
How to ruin
are the first books Simon Elkeles wrote. And you notice it. They are still
great, but they are missing something. In her next books the characters always
have to deal with some (major) problems. But in How to ruin that wasn’t the
case. The biggest problemof Amy was
that her boyfriend lived miles away from him. Still I loved reading the books.
The characters were funny, the boy loveable (as always) and they were well
written. So if you are looking for a quick, relaxing, feel good, funny read
this books are definitely whatyou are
It's been a very long time since I have done my last Teaser Tuesday and I have no idea why. But from now on I will post one again every week. This week it's from Secrets and Lies by Ella Monroe.
Franklin had brought her here one night for dinner and Whitney'd loved it. It reminded her of the kitschy burger joints in L.A., but with better food. At first, when Whitney had suggested meeting her, Angie had laughed. Apparently, if you're from California, you can only ever eat tofu and bean sprouts. You're also a hippie and spend all your free time hugging trees. ____________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________
Scott tore the letter from her hand, read it, and immediately signaled for the Secret Service agents mingling among the guests.
Hi! I've read Such a Rush in August, so it's a long time ago. But I still wanted to write a review about it, so here it is. Short description When I was fourteen, I made a decision. If I was doomed to live in a trailer park next to an airport, I could complian about the smell of the jet fuel like my mom, I could drink myself to death over the noise like everybody else, or I could learn to fly. Heaven Beach, South Carolina, is anything but, if you live at the low-rent end of town. All her life, Leah Jones has been the grown-up in her family, while her mother moves from boyfriend to boyfriend, letting any available money slip out of her hands. At school, they may diss Leah as trash, but she's the one who negotiates with the landlord when the rent's not paid. At fourteen, she's the one who gets a job at the nearby airstrip. But there's one way Leah can escape reality. Saving every penny she can, she begs quiet Mr. Hall, who runs an aerial banner-advertisin business at the airstrip and also offers flight lessons, to take her up just once. Leaving the trailer park far beneath her and swooping out over the sea is a rush greater than anything she's ever experienced, and when Mr. Hall offers to give her cut-rat flight lessons, she feels ready to touch the sky. By the time she's a high school senior, Leah has become a good enough pilot that Mr. Hall offers her a job flying a banner plane. It seems like a dream come true... but turns out to be just as fleeting as any dream. Mr. Hall dies suddenly, leaving everything he owned in the hands of his teenage sons: golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson. And they're determined to keep the banner planes flying.
Thoug Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she's leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomded bussiness - unitel Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers - and the consequences could be deadly . My opinion
When I had
finished reading this book I had the feeling that it could have been better. It
was well written and the plotline in general was good. And I even liked the
characters, well most of them. So what was wrong with it? It’s just that some events in the book went to quick,
the timespan of the book was also very short. Witch I dislike most of the
times. And then something I have also noticed in other books I’ve read. The characters
were confusing lust with love. Leah didn’t knew Grayson and still she says she
loves him. And that’s something that really frustrates me, because in my
opinion if you don’t really know each other, than you can’t possibly love each
other. But don’t let this stop you from reading the book because other than the
love thing I still loved reading the book.
Hi! Here are some (awesome) books that will be release in November: Reached (Matched #3) - Ally Condie I've read the two previous books. And I really liked them, so I'm very excited to know how it will end. The ones who haven't read one of the books yet, you should definitely do it! 13th November 2012 Undeadly (The Reaper Diaries #1) - Michele Vail I don't read many books about "zombies". Why? I don't know, when I think about zombies I see those horrible creatures from Hollywood. But when I read this short description I thought why not. So maybe I will read this one someday. 20th November 2012 Deity (Convenant #3) - Jennifer L. Armentrout I know that some people find this books a cheap rip-off of Vampire Academy. And in some points I agree. But I still loved reading the first book in this series. So I'm definitely going to read this one to. 6th November 2012
Hi! This are the books that I've read in October: Fire (Graceling Realm #2) - Kristin Cashore Legacy (Legacy #1) - Kayla Cluver Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky #1) - Veronica Rossi The Gathering (Darkness Rising #1) - Kelley Armstrong Nightshade (Nightshade #1) - Andrea Cremer Wolfsbane (Nightshade #2) - Andrea Cremer Temptation (Temtation #1) - Karen Ann Hopkins Stealing Parker (Catching Jordan #2) - Miranda Kenneally I am Number Four (Lorien Legacies #1) - Pittacus Lore Assassin Study (Study #1.5) - Maria V. Snyder Power Study (Study #3.5) - Maria V. Snyder Ice Study (Study #3.6) - Maria V. Snyder My absolute favorite was Legacy followed by Stealing Parker. Which book did you enjoy this month?
Hi! My review for Temptation by Karen Ann Hopkins Short description Your heart misleads you. That's what my friends and family say. But I love Noah. And he loves me. We met and fell in love in the sleepy farming community of Meadowview, while we rode our horses together through the grassy fields and in those moments in each other's arms. It should be ROSE &NOAH forever, easy. But it won't be. Because he's Amish. And I'm not. My opinion
about Romeo and Julia, now it’s Noah and Rose. Seriously I’m curious how their
relationship will work out. Before I read Temptation I didn’t know much about
Amish people and thanks to this book I learned quite a lot about it. And it’s definitely
something I want to know more about, so if somebody knows a good book about the
Amish let me know.
But I also have to say that this book frustrated me sometimes. Rose could be
very immature sometimes, but mainly it was Noah who frustrated me. Mostly he
annoyed me by the way he was acting towards Rose. And then I reminded me that
he was Amish, so that his behavior was actually normal. So I can’t really
complaint about that aspect of the book I think.
It was still a great book and I definitely want to read the next book in the
Hi! I'm sorry that it took me so long to post again. But here's my review for the Ironskin by Tina Connolly. Short description Jane Eliot wears an iron mask. It's the only way to contain the fey curs that scars her cheek. The Great War is five years gone, but its scattered victims remain - the ironsking. When a carefully worded listing appears for a governess to assist with a "delicate situation" - a child born during the Great War - Jane is certain the child is fey-cursed, and that she can help. Teaching the unruly Dorie to suppress her curse is hard enough; she certainly didn't expect to fall for the girl's father, the enigmatic artist Edward Rochart. But her blossoming crush is stifled by her own scars, and by his parade of woman. Ugly women, who enter his closed studio... and come out as beautiful as the fey. Jane knows Rochart cannot love her, just as she knows that she must wear iron for the rest of her life. But what if neither of these things is true? Step by step Jane unlocks the secrets of her new life - and discovers just how far she will go to become whole again. My opinion
I’m not so
sure what to think about this book. On the one hand it set the fey in a whole
new light and I liked that. Also the “gifts” or “curses” they got by their weapons
are fascinating. So on that point I definitely want to read the next book. But
there were also some major things that really annoyed me. When I was reading
the book I got the feeling that the author was trying too hard to follow the
storyline of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. And that spoiled the story for me.
Because I think that the book would have been better if she hadn’t tried that
hard. There were moments in the book that she didn’t follow the plot of Jane
Eyre and then I really enjoyed the book, but then she would turn the story in
such a weird way to match the plot of Jane Eyre again. And it certainly didn’t
help that I was comparing the two the whole time, but if you try to retell a
story like Jane Eyre please do it properly. But the book was still worth
reading and I’m definitely going to read the next one. And I hope that it will
become better know that she can’t rely on Jane Eyre anymore.
This cover is really perfect. It suites the story very well. You can see Jane with her ironmask on, while she's standing in front of Edward's castle.
Hi! Here is my review for The Lost Prince like I promised. If you haven't read the Iron Fey yet I have to warn you that this review might contain spoilers. Short discription Don't look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them. That is Ethan Chase's unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs - including his reputation - begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he'd dare to fall for. Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister's world - the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from danger long, long forgotten. My opinion
Prince was completely different than the Iron Fey but in a good way. I loved
this book, when I read the Iron Fey it took me a while to really enjoy the
story. But this book got me hooked within the first pages.
some differences with the Iron Fey, first of all Ethan is now the narrator and
not his sister Meghan. Most of the times I don’t enjoy reading a book that is
written through the eyes of a boy, but
Ethan was such a lovely, funny character that I really enjoyed it. Another
difference was that the story took place in the mortal world most of the time
and not in the Nevernever.
Like I said
before Ethan is a great character, he’s funny, he cares for people (even when
he don’t want to admit it), he’s smart, he’s strong, he’s cute,… . We already
knew him from The Iron Fey, but since then he has changed a lot.
And then you have Kenzie. Kenzie is a nosey girl who wants to know as much as
she can and that’s why she won’t leave Ethan alone even when he’s a dork to
her. So when she ends up with him in the Nevernever with Ethan she doesn’t
freak out, but she’s curious. Of course Ethan doesn’t understand her, because
the Nevernever freaks him out.
But even when he wants to get away from
as far as possible to protect her, he can’t leave her behind. They are attract
to each other even if they don’t want it and they need each other to
survive. Through whole the story Ethan
has the feeling that Kenzie has a secret that she won’t tell. And when she
finally told him the secret I was a bit shocked. I have no idea how the story
will develop for them and how their relationship is going to end. So this is
one of the reasons why I definitely want to read the rest of the books when
they come out.
wouldn’t by complete without the fey, so this it’s time to introduce some of
them. Keirran is an iron fey, but he
doesn’t look like one. He almost looks human, except for his pointed ears and
he can wield summer, winter and iron magic. The ones who have read The Iron’s
prophecy may already know who he is and others might have an idea who he’s.
Keirran is an energetic 16 year old boy (at least he looks like 16) and he’s a
bit bored so he seeks adventure. But at the end of the story he has changed and
I’m waiting for the next book to see what he’s going to do next.
And what is a book without a forbidden romance? Kagawa has put one in the
books, it’s not a main story but I love it! Keirran fancy’s Annwyl an exile
summer fey. So what are the courts going to do about that?
course some old characters pop up now and then like Meghan, Ash, Puck and
Grimalkin (I love him!).
that the Iron Fey are no longer a problem, there must be something else going
on. And the weird thing is that even after reading a whole book, I still don’t
know what exactly is going on. There is a new kind of fey (again), but they are
completely different and it’s impossible to
know what they are going to do next.
general I liked this book a lot, it has adventure, romance, mystery and lovely
characters. And the book is written well, so I’m definitely looking forward to
the next one.
I'm not a big fan of this cover, it just shows to much. The covers of the Iron Fey were much prettier.
Hi! Here's my review for the Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa. Short discription Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined. Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
When I read
the first book it didn’t convince me. It went to slow for me, certainly the
first half of the book. But I saw potential and I liked the way it was written
so I decided to read the next one. And I’m glad I did, because the books only
became better and better.
Why did I
like the books? First of all I like mythology and fey are mythology. In some
points the books followed the mythology. There were still two kinds of fey, the
Unseelie en Seelie court. Also some typical fey characters like Robin
Goodfellow and Oberon appeared in the books. But of course the book wouldn’t be
refreshing if everything stayed the same. So this is where the iron fey and
Meghan come in.
always thought she was a normal teenage girl. That was till her little brother
was kidnapped and she’s determined to bring him back no matter how high the
Like I said
before the book began rather slow, but with a good joke from Puck and ice boy Ash the book was bearable. As the first book
continued there came some action and romance in it, which I liked. And after I finished the fourth and the last
one, I was in love with the books. Julie Kagawa definitely improved her writing
during the series.
So this series is definitely one you have to
read. Cover Some people dislike faces on a cover, but I like it most of the time. And on this one the faces are just perfect for the books. I also like the colors of the covers. So this covers are definitely a succes for me.

Finale (Hush, Hush #4) - Becca Fitzpatrick October 23rd This books are so good! I really like to read them. I still have to read the third one, but I'm sure they won't disappoint me. Patch is so... I don't know how to describe him, I just liked him from the moment I met him.
The short description looks promising, two worlds that exist apart from each other but also within each other. It's hard to tell with what the book is dealing, but it looks interesting. Ironskin (Ironskin #1) - Tina Connolly October 2nd Another book that I've already read. When I read this book I didn't have a wow-feeling, but I might have been comparing it to much with Jane Eyre (my favorite book). But still it's definitely worth a shot.

Hi! Here's my review of Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Short discription After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined. My opinion
waiting for this book in anticipation and when I finally got it I forgot about it.
But then yesterday I came across it
again and picked it up. And I’m so glad I did, this book was amazing!
was intriguing, the mystery of magic, Celaena’s past, the (friendly) relationship
between Celaena, Chaol and Dorian. And when the book ended there were still so
many questions twirling in my head. And I hope that some will be answered in
the next book, which only comes out in 2013! *grumbles*
in this book just seemed right the place, the characters, the plot, the writing
style… So were to start?
Directly from the beginning you got gripped by the story. Celaena had been a
slave for a year, but then she got an offer compete in a competition and if she
wins become the “Champion” of the king (who she hates) or be a slave forever. She’s
determined to win so she can regain her freedom. Celaena is one of the most
strongest protagonist I ever met. As an assassin she knows how to kick some ass
(which I like), she’s funny and witty. You think as an assassin she would be
brainless, but she’s actually very smart. And she loves to read (yeah!). I
forgot to mention her loyalty, confidence and sometimes she’s even insecure. So
she isn’t just a brainless, hunk of muscles who happened to be an assassin. She’s
a real lovely character and if she was a real person I would have loved to have
her as my friend.
The instant I met Chaol I liked him. He’s not easily intimidated, he’s loyal
but also a bit stubborn. He doesn’t talk a lot, but when he does you can hear
that he’s smart and oh he’s just lovely. As the captain of the guard he knows
how to fight and who doesn’t want a beautiful boy who can protect you? His
relationship with Celaena is a bit rocky at the beginning, he doesn’t trust her
(which is logical) and she loves to talk and to pry while he wants to keep to
himself. But when the story develops so does their relationship.
And last but not least you got Dorian, the crown prince of Adarlan. When
Celaena first meets him, she hates him. He’s after all the son of the person
she hates the most, the king of Adarlan. But how long can you ignore a charming
boy like Dorian who has his heart in the right place? If I was Celaena I would
jumped him the first second I met him and not to kill him.
So you’re probably sensing it already there is a potential love triangle. But
this one is going to be interesting, because the three of them are all close.
So I can’t possible know how it will turn out, so I’m very curious.
writing style was also very good. The book was written in the third person and
mostly you saw Celaena’s point of view, but there were also short pieces from another
characters perspective. Most of the time I don’t like that because I find it
hard to really get into the story, but not this time. This time it made sense
and it was fitting for the story.
I would definitely
want to read more by this author!
Beautiful just like the book! It really fits the book, the girl on the cover represents Celaena well.
Hi! This week's trailer is from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. People shouted below, and the light bouncing off the glass castle blinded her. But there he was, just a hand's breadth from her fingers, his gray eyes wide, his arms swinging as if he could turn them into wings. In a heartbeat, her arms were around his middle, and she slammed into him so hard that the breath was knocked from her chest. Together they plummeted like a stone, down, down, down toward the rising ground. ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ There was a darkness in his eyes that felt cold and foreign, like the gasps between stars. Could one man destroy a world? Was his ambition so consuming? She could hear the din of war. The king's head shifted to look at the hallway ahead.
Hi! This are the books I have read in August. And the most of them were really, really good! The Iron Knight (The Iron Fey #4) - Julie Kagawa Pushing the Limits - Katie McGarry Ironskin (Ironskin #1) - Tina Connolly Such a Rush - Jennifer Echols How to Ruin a Summer Vacation (How to ruin #1) - Simone Elkeles How to Ruin My Teenage Life (How to ruin #2) - Simone Elkeles How to Ruin Your Boyfriend's reputation (How to ruin #3) - Simone Elkeles Leaving Paradise (Leaving Paradise #1) - Simone Elkeles Returning to Paradise (Leaving Paradise #2) - Simone Elkeles If you want to laugh read How to ruin, if you want something more intense to read choose Leaving Paradise or Pushing the Limits. Something in between would be Such a Rush.The Iron Knight and Ironskin are perfect if you want something more mysterious and mythical. See you later xx El
Kat Zhang - What's left of me I just read the short description and just wow. I really really want to read this story. The short description is intriguing and... . I'm just speechless at the moment. I would say read the short description for yourself and you will know what I'm talking about.
Magie Stiefvater - The raven boys We all know her from Shiver and know she has a new book series. I have to admit I haven't read Shiver yet, it's still standing on my to read shelf. But one day I will read shiver and The raven boys, 'cause the short description is promising. Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian - Burn for Burn Two authors, one book a bit weird. But I'm willing to give it a shot. As I read the short description it's going to be full of bitchfights, and I love drama. It also intrigues me a bit, I would like to know what exactly happened to Lillia four years ago. So it's definitely standing on my to read list. Cylin Busby - Blink once I actually requested an ARC for this book, but didn't get it. It's really a shame, because I know I would loved loved this book. So I'll and am going to buy it then. Because this book is going to be amazing, I just can sense it!
Libba Bray - The Diviners I have read The Gemma Doyle Trilogy and since then I'm hooked. So I assume that this book won't disappoint me. Can't wait to get it in my hands! See you later xx El
