Waiting on Wednesday: Woven by Michael Jensen, David Powers King


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

                                       This weeks book that I'm desperate to get my hands on:

Woven by Michael Jensen, David Powers King


Publication: January 27, 2015

Genre: Young Adult, High Fantasy, Paranormal, Fiction

Goodreads Summary

Two unlikely allies must journey across a kingdom in the hopes of thwarting death itself.

All his life, Nels has wanted to be a knight of the kingdom of Avërand. Tall and strong, and with a knack for helping those in need, the people of his sleepy little village have even taken to calling him the Knight of Cobblestown.

But that was before Nels died, murdered outside his home by a mysterious figure.

Now the young hero has awoken as a ghost, invisible to all around him save one person—his only hope for understanding what happened to him—the kingdom’s heir, Princess Tyra. At first the spoiled royal wants nothing to do with Nels, but as the mystery of his death unravels, the two find themselves linked by a secret, and an enemy who could be hiding behind any face.

Nels and Tyra have no choice but to abscond from the castle, charting a hidden world of tangled magic and forlorn phantoms. They must seek out an ancient needle with the power to mend what has been torn, and they have to move fast. Because soon Nels will disappear forever.

Why I'm desperate for Woven:

I don't know if I've said this before but I really really love fantasy books and Woven has definitely caught my interest. Plus I love it when two unsuspecting people are thrown together on a journey to save the world or something along those lines.  So, I'm pretty psyched about this book! Anyone else excited?

Angel Magic ~ Thailand Drama


Name: Angel Magic ( Thailand name - Leh Nangfah)
Language: Thai with English subtitles
Episodes: 28

My Review

Angel Magic is about Lallalit a spoiled heiress who cares only about herself and how beautiful she is. What she doesn't know is that two angels from above are watching her and decide to teach her a lesson. The two angels  curse her into being a bird at night and a human by day and the only way she'll be able to break it is by kissing her true love and helping other's but she's only given 3 months if by then she doesn't break the spell she will remain a bird forever. Lallalit, thinks its going to be easy for her since she's beautiful and everybody loves her but behind her back she hears people talking badly of her. Apart from that she overhears that her father's company is being stolen from her and she will be left with nothing. What will Lallalit do? Will she be able to break the spell and save her father's company or give in?

This Thailand drama is by far my ultimate favorite from episode one it captured my attention and I just couldn't help but love it. Vill Wannarot acting as Lallalit was a wonderful actress she made me dislike her but love her as well. She was a very complex character and I loved her for it. She was selfish, which was a first for me because I usually watch drama's with girl character's who are way too nice so this was a great change. During the show she grows a lot as a character, she learns to love and care for people and to let go of her spoiled attitude though it still comes out at times.

Teepob her love interest is definitely a keeper, gosh I feel so old saying that but he is. He knew how to handle Lallalit, and wasn't afraid to put her in her place when she got out of line and he didn't coddle her either he was hard on her but he had to be because she wouldn't learn otherwise. He knew how spoiled and self-centered she was and he wanted her to grow out of that. Where she was selfish and bratty he was mature, he made up her weaknesses. They were a perfect match!

The romance was well done, it didn't feel too rushed or forced it was probably because Lallalit and Teepob had such great chemistry together and I couldn't help but smile every time there was a cute scene coming on. They were just plain adorable and I couldn't help but root for them even though they had a lot of obstacles in their way.

Here are some scene's that I totally loved!
And this one gaahhh my heart couldn't take it! Too many feels..
I seriously loved the romance and the plot and the character's! I loved everything though at times I felt annoyed at the misunderstandings that were going on in the show but it kept it going and had me at the edge of my seat so I'm not complaining. This Thailand drama pulled at my heart strings and made me laugh and cry it just made me feel so many emotions that even though I already finished it I feel like watching it all over again. 

For those of you who love Swan Lake or a great story filled with romance and magic and a dash of comedy then you should definitely watch this!

Stake That (Blood Coven #2) by Mari Mancusi Review



Series: Blood Coven #2
Publisher: Berkley
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, Fiction
Release Date: December 5, 2006
Pages: 288

Goodreads Summary

All I want is to be a vampire. But nooo-I have to be Rayne MacDonald, Vampire Slayer....

Sisters. They'll swipe your clothes, your boyfriends, your destiny. But it wasn't exactly my twin Sunny's fault. Magnus, vampire hottie and coven leader, mistook her for me last month and bit her instead. Now they're doing the inter-species dating thing.

But back to me. Turns out that for every generation, there's a Vampire Slayer-and this time around, it just happens to be yours truly. My first mission: infiltrate a seedy vamp bar downtown and expose its vampire owner for purposely spreading a blood disease he created himself. A task almost harder than passing trig.

After going it alone once, I realize I need help. So Magnus sends his hot homey Jareth to go undercover with me. And let me just say I wouldn't mind going under the covers with him. Maybe fate doesn't bite after all...


My Review


Before I start gushing about how much I love Stake That, I'd like to say something. *coughs* This book was the book that got me hooked to reading. Yes, I know how cliched vampires are but I love them anyways I admit though that this book was recommended to me by my one and only sister when I was in middle school and at the time I wasn't much of a book reader but as soon as I gave this book a chance I fell in love. Now enough of rehashing my book past. You guys want the juicy details of why I love this book right? 
Rayne had a wonderful dream. This dream of her's was to become a vampire and end up with Magnus the leader of the Blood Coven and live a carefree life with her dark lover. But as we know life never works out the way we planned and instead her twin sister Sunny gets the guy while Rayne ends up being a vampire slayer. Well aren't we in for a ride...

 I loved Rayne her spunky nature and sass are definitely what makes her so endearing. I loved her inside and out, she is one hilarious protagonist and I never tire of her. I think though that her Buffy references in the book also had something to do with it.  As for Jareth her love interest, you know I love him I really do but sometimes I just felt like punching him in the face. Granted he did have a reason to be a not-so-nice-guy but still...I suppose that just added to my love for it since I loved his bickering with Rayne.

The romance was well done at least for me because it wasn't just lovey dovey with them, no if that's what you expect then this book is not for you but I loved it. They actually hated one another in the beginning but when the time came they both saved each other which is what made them such amazing characters. I always love bickering partners I find them so adorable. 

Oh by the way I almost forgot to mention that I read this book but never read the first but it doesn't really matter because you can understand what's going on without reading the first book. ( I do that with a lot of books, I know I know bad Betsy but its just the way I roll.) This was a pretty fast read but I do have to say that this books is on the more comedic side and if your looking for a serious book with vampires then this is not the one for you.

Insane by H.G. Lynch ~ Book Blitz & Giveaway


insane

Insane by H.G. Lynch
Genre: Dark Fantasy/ Horror Romance

Something evil is going on in the Montgomery Psychiatric Hospital; every time there is an unexplainable blackout, a patient dies. 

Callie isn’t insane – she sees the ghost of her dead best friend only because he really is there. It’s just that nobody believes her. 
Casey is scarred after a horrific attack during which he killed someone. Temporary insanity was his plea, and the asylum is his prison. 
With fear and death lurking everywhere, and no way to escape, Callie is certain it’s only a matter of time before she or Casey, the odd boy she has an inexplicable link with, becomes the next victim of the creature in the shadows. 
Trapped in the asylum with a killer on the loose, there’s plenty of reason to be afraid of the dark.



About the Author:
I’m H.G. Lynch, a Scottish Paranormal Romance author, avid readers, and cat-lover. I spend most of my days writing, while wrestling my cat, Sooki, off my laptop. I believe that chocolate cake can save the world, and I am highly caffeine-addicted. I can occasionally be found rolling on the floor, laughing manically, when I’ve consumed too much caffeine. I love horse-riding, Star Trek, and snow.
My books are dark fantasy romances, usually with a bad boy and a bad girl. Sometimes with zombies, sometimes vampires, sometimes other things. Enjoy!

Read below for an excerpt from the book:

Chapter One
** Callie ** “Let me go! Let go of me! I’m not crazy! I’m not fucking crazy!” I screamed, thrashing against the guards as they half-dragged and half-carried me down the pale, sterile hallway. I bit fingers and kicked shins and scratched arms, I spat and snarled and cursed, I screamed so loud I hurt my own ears and scared the hell out of half the other patients in the building. And still, the guards thrust me into a dark little room and slammed the metal door behind me, locking me in… Again. It wasn’t the first time I’d tried to escape, nor the first time I’d been caught. But this time was the closest I’d gotten to freedom, and to be thrown back into the tiny, dull, lifeless room I’d been inhabiting for nearly three months, to be ten feet from fresh air and grass and a world without bars on the windows and a schedule for every moment outside my room, and then be forced back into a prison – it was maddening. But then, that was the thing about the Montgomery Psychiatric Hospital; if you weren’t already mad when you went in, you sure would be after a few months. I slumped onto the floor and stared at the door, not sure whether to cry or try to rip the door off its hinges. I forced my mind to go blank, because at least if I didn’t think about how painfully close I’d come to finally getting out of here, I could perhaps retain what was left of my dwindling sanity. If I thought about how I’d been close enough to see the huge, wrought iron gates at the end of the gravel driveway through the glass doors, I’d probably lose it for good, and then I’d actually deserve to be here. For now, I was sane. It was just that nobody believed me. They said I was crazy. That I was a danger to myself and possibly to others. That I was delusional, paranoid, disturbed. That I heard voices. Well. That much was true. I did hear voices. Actually, only one voice. “Failed again, sweetheart. Nice try, though,” said the voice that nobody else could hear. It was a voice I knew all too well – a voice I’d known since I was seven years old. I tore my gaze off the door, and turned to see him. He was sitting on the bed, looking as real as he had the day he’d died. Silky brown curls, pouty lips, and hazel eyes. Silver hoop earring in one ear, ragged jeans with holes in the knees, and a sleeveless dark blue shirt that exposed the pentagram tattoo on his left bicep. Overall, gorgeous. And absolutely, unequivocally dead as a doornail. I sighed and grimaced at the ghost of my dead best friend. “Shut up, Chester.” He folded his hands over his heart, pretending to be injured – which would have been a lot funnier if his heart was still beating. “Aw, don’t be like that, Cal. I’m sure you’ll make it next time.” “You said that last time.” “Did I?” He frowned and scratched the back of his head. “Well, I guess I was wrong then.” I snorted. “Yeah, that’s really reassuring.”

I've actually never thought about it but I now realize that I do when I'm happy I like reading Dystopian for some reason and when I'm sad I like to read Contemporary Romance  and as for when I'm angry I normally go for books with Zombies in them probably because of the strong killer zombie girl. That says a lot about me doesn't it. lol

Waiting on Wednesday: The Ruby Circle (Bloodlines #6) by Richelle Mead

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

                                       This weeks book that I'm desperate to get my hands on:

                                          The Ruby Circle (Bloodlines #6) by Richelle Mead


Publication: February 10, 2015

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy

Goodreads Summary

The epic conclusion to Richelle Mead's New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series is finally here...

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

After their secret romance is exposed, Sydney and Adrian find themselves facing the wrath of both the Alchemists and the Moroi in this electrifying conclusion to Richelle Mead’s New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series. When the life of someone they both love is put on the line, Sydney risks everything to hunt down a deadly former nemesis. Meanwhile, Adrian becomes enmeshed in a puzzle that could hold the key to a shocking secret about spirit magic, a secret that could shake the entire Moroi world.
 

Why I'm desperate for The Ruby Circle:

If you didn't know Sydrian is my life and I can never get enough of them and I'm practically sobbing as I'm writing this because their story is finally coming to an end. (Anyone have a tissue?) They've been through a lot together and I feel so desperate to read the final book but at the same time I don't wanna read it because then that's it. No more Sydrian. I could always go back and reread but it wouldn't be the same. By the way if you haven't read the series you're totally missing out, the books are just so beautiful and I *blows nose* just can't help myself.  Sydrian = Life fulfilled

The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2) by Rick Riordan Review



Series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2
Publisher: Disney Hyperion Books
Genre: Young Adult, Adventure, Greek Mythology, Urban Fantasy
Release Date: April 1, 2006
Pages:288

Goodreads Summary

The heroic son of Poseidon makes an action-packed comeback in the second must-read installment of Rick Riordan's amazing young readers series. Starring Percy Jackson, a "half blood" whose mother is human and whose father is the God of the Sea, Riordan's series combines cliffhanger adventure and Greek mythology lessons that results in true page-turners that get better with each installment. In this episode, The Sea of Monsters, Percy sets out to retrieve the Golden Fleece before his summer camp is destroyed, surpassing the first book's drama and setting the stage for more thrills to come.

I'm gonna be truthful you guys I always have trouble starting the second book of a series because I'm always scared I'll end up hating it even though I loved the first book. I've done that with a lot of other series which I'm probably never gonna go back to but with the Percy Jackson series I didn't even have to worry at all right from the start of the second book I knew I was going to love it. I'm sad to say though that I finished this book in less than a day. It was extremely enjoyable and I felt like it was way too short but I can't help loving it anyways.

My Review

The characters were just as amazing as in the first book, Percy and Annabeth were totally awesome though they did argue a bit at the beginning it didn't last very long not when their friend Grover was in trouble. By the way speaking of Grover I found the part of him getting married to Cylclops Polyphemus hilarious. I could totally picture him in all his wedding getup!


Oh and Riordan decided to add a new character to the series, ladies and gentlemen please welcome Tyson Percy's Cyclops brother whom I couldn't help but find adorable. Tyson became another favorite of mine, I found him so adorbs but he was also strong and protected Percy when he needed it which I found so cute brotherly love *sigh* the feels. This series is definitely becoming a favorite of mine but I'm trying to tone down my reading a bit because at this rate I'll finish it way too quickly and then I'll probably be feeling Percy Jackson withdrawals. 

Overall this series is beloved by all and me as well so if you haven't started it you're definitely missing out and you need to start it stat. Like right now! This series is filled to the brim with a wonderful cast of characters that'll take you on the ride of your life!

Ratgirl: Song of the Viper by Gayle C. Krause ~ Promo Blitz & Giveaway




Young Adult
Date Published: December 31, 2013

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

The only things sixteen-year-old JAX STONE has of her former life is an antique watch and an old storybook her grandmother left her, a five-year-old brother, ANDY, her mother left her, and a hypnotic singing voice she inherited from her father.

A streetwise orphan, she is an expert at surviving in a dangerous city, where the rich have fled to the New Continent and the deadly daytime sun forces the middle class to live in sewer tunnels. Jax, along with the rest of the homeless, must be wary of rats—the furry ones underground that steal their food and invade their shelter and the human ones above ground that steal their children and threaten their lives.

When the tyrannical mayor, SYLVANIS A. CULPEPPER, kidnaps Jax’s brother it’s no coincidence. His son has died from multiple rat bites and he kidnaps all of the city’s children with a two-fold ulterior motive. One, to find his illegitimate offspring, and two, to garner a slave labor force to build his planned underground city using those he did not father.

Jax is surprised when Culpepper’s personal pilot, COLT CONRAD, a stranger from the New Continent, facilitates her escape from the mayor’s mansion after her first attempt to save Andy goes awry. Romantic emotions interfere with her determination to rescue her brother and though she knows who Colt is, she doesn’t know they are both descendants of the founders of an environmental militant group called the ECOS, who battled Culpepper two generations earlier, and lost their lives to the unscrupulous tyrant.

Jax accidentally discovers her singing has a hypnotic effect on the rats. Desperate to win Andy’s freedom, she disguises herself as a world-renowned exterminator with the help of a rag-tag band of friends. ASTORIA CRUZ, a teen nightwalker. RAFE JOHNSTON, the leader of a street gang. And a genius boy nicknamed CHIENSTEIN, who designs tools from scavenged machine parts Jax picks at abandoned mansions and industrial sites. Colt introduces her as THE VIPER and she barters with Culpepper. If she rids Metro city of the rats that killed his child she will receive enough gold to pay passage for her brother, her friends and herself to the New Continent.

In a life-threatening ruse Jax uses her mesmerizing song to lure the city’s rats to their death in the toxic river. But when the corrupt mayor reneges on the agreement, Jax and her friends ultimately outwit and out battle the greedy autocrat. Culpepper and his Megamark Guards kill Rafe as he protects Astoria, his unrequited love. In Jax’s grief over his death a new relationship blossoms with Colt, one that changes her life forever. Though the price paid for her brother’s freedom is extreme, Jax saves not only her brother, but all of Metro City’s children from life in a dying city.

As Jax and Colt bond, they discover the ECOS secrets for saving the planet and put their ancestors’ plan into action as they start a new life in Antarctica, the new sustainable continent. Culpepper starts a new life too, one he never envisioned for himself— stinking, dowsed in darkness and scratching through the alleys of Metro City for food— the life of a sewer rat!



Book Trailer





 EXCERPT

"We are orphans. We use our brains and our bodies to survive. But the only things that thrive in Metro City are the rats, and not all of them are rodents."

                                                                                               Jax Stone

Chapter One

Whoever said the teen years were the best of a girl's life didn't come from Metro City. Hell, they can't imagine what it's like to be me, living in a sewer tunnel by day, and foraging the forest for food or scavenging through abandoned mansions at night. Anything I find that I can't use to survive this hellhole I trade for money.

And then, there's the Megamark Guards who patrol this dying city. I avoid them at all cost. One never knows when they'll turn on an innocent person. I've seen them beat up the homeless on a wager or for sheer entertainment. No, it's not an easy life.

We used to live in brick houses and modern apartments, but the sun's savage rays turned our lives upside down. It took a while to get used to sleeping in the day, but night, as dangerous as it is, is the only time we can venture to the surface to seek food or trade our services.

Between the vindictive Guards and the deadly daytime sun, I spend half my time surviving, and the other half planning how to. If this is the best part of my life, I might as well be dead. Only one thing keeps me alive . . .

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) by Rick Riordan Review




Series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1
Publisher: Disney Hyperion Books
Genre: Young Adult, Adventure, Greek Mythology, Urban Fantasy
Release Date: March 1, 2006
Pages: 377

Goodreads Summary 


Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse-Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy's mom finds out, she knows it's time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he'll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends -- one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena -- Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.


My Review

I'm sure almost everyone has read this book it was even probably part of their childhood and you know what I can completely understand why, in fact I wish I could go back to my childhood self and hand her this book. To be honest I normally don't read that many boy pov's for none other reason than because I feel like I won't be able to relate since I'm girl. I know doesn't make much sense but that's how I felt but I decided to give this book a chance and boy was I in for a surprise. I truly enjoyed this book in fact I finished it in really quickly and can't wait to read the second one. 

Now on to the characters, Percy Jackson the kid that has trouble written all over his face, I even think he deserves a reward after everything he got himself into granted it wasn't completely his fault. I completely loved Percy's character he wasn't perfect but he's had a rough childhood so can you blame him. Although,  Percy had it rough he took it into stride he was brave and loyal which to me is everything. I loved how he always protected his friend Grover I wish I had a friend like him growing up.

Annabeth what can I say I loved her and could definitely relate and I found her bickering with Percy so adorable. I loved how they each had a name for each other Percy was Seaweed Brain and Annabeth Wise Girl. They were so adorbs, and I just loved how their friendship grew (and will hopefully grow into something more.) As for Grover, he truly is a loyal friend as well and all three of them just give each other strength their all such wonderful characters that I can't even pick a favorite.

The Greek Mythology was pretty amazeballs though to be truthful I don't know much about mythology so it was sort of like I learned a lot, I'd probably fail at mythology. No cookie for me but I did enjoy it and was truly blown away by everything and can I just say how weird it is to hear that the entrance to the underworld is in Los Angeles where I live when I heard that I was like hmm so I live close to the underworld that's nice to know.

I seriously loved this book! I don't know if I've said this before but I love Adventure books and this book has that and more. I enjoyed every minute of it, I even got angry at myself for awhile because I finished this book so quickly.This book is a MUST! 

This was me the whole time I was reading this book. *fangirling like a dork*
