Tempted (House of Night #6)
So…you’d think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark’s life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break. Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang. Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially when
If your answer is YES then you've probably been reading this series. XD

It’s been 3 years since I read and like Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight (the book, not the movie). People always wonder why I liked that book. Well, aside from the fact that it was one of my first reads when I joined GR, it turned me into who I am now: a voracious reader. I guess it had something to do with its simple, readable language and the buzz it created. I became popular in the office by being the first one to read it and my books, all the 4 of them...more

So after I gave birth to my son, lazing around the house, cus “come on” my newborn slept around the clock. So I thought “heck I am gonna give this series a try”. Well I am not going to front, I was in love with the first five books of this series, blame it on the hormones or trying to re-live some form of my youth, I was addicted and gobbled up all the books in less than a week.
The sixth book happened and I am now questioning my sanity, I will...more
-- SPOILER Alert---
Im sooooo upset about this book! is the worst so far! I just dont get it? WTF happen to the authors???? when they become such a crappy writers??? I mean the last book was boring, but this one was unbearable ! NOTHING happen in 250 pages ! and suddenly in the last 15 pages they kill Heath! and then is over...just like that..!
And is pretty obvius that the writter decided to make the book more "kid and teen like" because suddenly Zoey is a...more
Logically Zoey will get with Stark, because he's the only one who hasnt gotten or caused a broken heart yet. Also, because he's gorgeous, whereas Heath is obsessive and Erik is possessive. It's the best way.
So I've made my disdain for Zoey quite clear. So why do I keep reading this? Simple - the plot is actually really good. I really enjoy the Kalona and Neferet story arc, and I REALLY liked that we finally got some chapters from other character's perspectives.
The beginning of this book was hard for me to get through, though. I'm sorry, but the Zoey-going-out-of-her-way-not-to-cuss thing is ge...more
The Plot is really getting better in the HON Series. I feel that more tension and cliffes are building up from this book. Which is way better then when I first started reading this series.
Though W.T.F is with the words in this book!
'My inner Goddess'
Jesus christ! How many times are you going to say Goddess until I do my head in!
Despite that, the series is beginning to unfold in a most interesting way as the stakes get higher. Apocalyptic prophecies and ancient vampire councils make for satisfying twists and turns. And the occasional switch to third-person gives fresh new perspectives and a welcome break from our beloved Zo.

1. The book is not only written by Zoey's Perspective and we also got perspectives from Stevie Rae, Rephaim, Aphrodite, Heath and Stark. My most favorite among this perspectives is Rephaim's perspective simply because it's coming from an enemy's point of view and it is interesting that I've learned that Raven Mockers are not that really bad and they just want to please and obey their father Kalona.
2. The Stevie Rae and Rephaim relationship which reminds me of...more
Okay, so I don't usually expect all that much from the HoN series. As a general rule, I find the writing pretty terrible, the characters kinda one-dimensional, and some of the plot ideas seemingly written by somebody high on E. So why do I keep reading? Well, I like the universe and - prior to this book - I used to like some of the characters. Now I'm down to the universe.
Tempted was just all over the place. We hear from 4 POVs, an unfortunate first for the series. The Casts...more
Dear PC & Kristin Cast,
Congratulations! You have successfully managed to learn the word "reconnoitering" and use it properly in a sentence. That is quite an accomplishment, if of course you are capable of also learning how to use other words. I can lend you my dictionary if you want! It is chop full of all kinds of words so you don't have to use "reconnoitering" as the only extension of your vocabulary! Seriously, after seeing that word at le...more
Alas, Zoey has become one of the most irritating characters in YA, and this series seems to be stuck in a rut. The narration has now split between characters, Stevie Rae taking on a much bigger role. (And I have...more

"Dr. Seuss reference. I like it," Stark said, giving me a check-me-out-I've-always-read-books hottie grin.
Aphrodite frowned at him.
