Man, this series definitely belongs on my "dramarama" shelf because that is seriously the driving force of these books.

Still a funny read, I think the vampire mythos here is interesting. Would like more substance to the plot - like a story arc or compelling antagonists - rather than "we make all our own problems" relationship drama.

That said, I keep turning pages and enjoy myself so a lot more is going right than wrong. And I'll be continuing on to the next.
I would have rated this book a 3 until the end. So much time was spent on Alice being isolated and miserable! I hope in the future books Alice is a more likable character. So far she has been whiny, self centered (EVERYTHING is about her), and sluggish. She has no drive to do ANYTHING! She has no interests, no motivation, no pizazz, nothing! All she does is sit around & feel sorry for herself. She can't even make an attempt to try to do well in school. She sleeps through her classes and lets ...more

Este libro continúa la historia de Instinto, el primer libro de la saga Lazos de Sangre. El primer libro no me gustó mucho, pero le di una oportunidad al segundo porque de verdad que había disfrutado leyendo su predecesor.
En Hado otras tramas son abiertas, por lo que ya la historia no se basa solamente en Alice con su raro triángulo amoroso en plan incesto. Milo se convirtió en un vamprio, Peter sigue desaparecido y hay unos nuevos vampiros por allí que tendrán algo en contra de nuestros protago

The more I read this series, the more I like it. I find that the characters have become real people to me, and I care about whats going to happen to them. There are some interesting things that happen in this book Milo has more time in the book, and you get to know Jane a bit better.

Top that off with learning more about the vampire scene and stalking vampires that are not as friendly as Jacks family, and I think this book will hold your interest.

I gave it 4 instead of a 5 because the grammar is
DNF 30%

Lo intenté, realmente lo intenté, pero es un libro terrible.

*La narración es pésima, muy simple, sin descripciones del entorno o de los personajes, sólo largas listas de adjetivos sobre el atractivo del chico y sus muchísimas cualidades.

*Los diálogos forzados, las reacciones inverosímiles, los giros inesperados totalmente esperados.

*Los personajes estereotipados de los pies a la cabeza, planos e irritantes, ni uno se salva de caer en los clichés del género; la protagonista sosa que es h

Jack starts to realize that he is in love with Alice after he found out that Peter has a claim on her. (Always count on a boy to realize their feelings for a girl when their territory gets threatened). Anyways...the big sucky part is that Jack and Alice can't be together because her "blood bond" dictates that she belongs with Peter and Peter has the right to kill her and Jack if Jack gets too friendly with Alice. This is really rough for Alice because her body tells her she belongs with Peter bu ...more

I wrote most of this review before I finished this book, so my first inclination was to give it a 2-2.5, but I upped it after the last of the book drastically improved.

Here’s my initial review:

Gosh, I’m not sure I can take any more of this series! The story improved as the book progressed, but Alice still bothers me so much! She’s so passive and never takes charge of her life. If she showed any inclination to do anything other than lay around and wait for Jack to call, I might enjoy this serie

FATE by Amanda Hocking (2 stars) She's an amateur, and it shows. You're a millionaire, Hocking, buy a damn editor. Jesus. Learn where to put commas, how to structure a sentence, and what is proper and improper grammar. It's really not THAT hard. There are thousands of websites that will teach you FOR FREE. Imagine that. I've quickly grown bored with the "woe is me" attitude the MC has. There is little to no plot in the whole book, and an editor (story and copy) is desperately--and I mean despera ...more

I'm so glad I started reading this series! Just when you think you have the plot figured out, something comes along and changes everything for the better! I really liked where the author took "Fate".

The story started off fast with a shocking story line I never expected. I did think the middle part dragged slightly but the ending truly makes up for that leaving you wanting more!

I can not wait to read more of the Peter/Alice/Jack love triangle but I think I am secretly hoping Peter wins - even t

I hate to write a negative review about this book because I really love this author, but this is honestly one of the most boring books I have read in a really long time. The main character, Alice, was very one-dimensional, and came across as very whiny. I didn't like her character for the same reason I didn't like Bella in "Twilight" - too whiny and way too obsessive over her boyfriend. Just because your boyfriend doesn't see you for two days is no reason to completely lose who you are. I do not ...more

From the first chapter in this series, I wasn’t truly affected by a single word written. Don’t get me wrong, I liked a lot of events throughout both books but not a single thing was true or convincing. Sadly.

The idea of ‘My blood approves’ is good. And since, I’m a fan of vamps, I liked ‘my blood approves’. But, really, let’s be honest. All Alice did was whine about everything and about Jack not being close enough to her. It was just wrong. Anyways ‘my blood approves’ wasn’t that bad. It was al

This has been an unusual reading experience for me.

I'm sticking with the series, I think because I want to see where the story goes and if the writing improves - and I'm a little masochistic.

As it stands (after My Blood Approves and Fate), the writing screams amateur, which isn't great for a published work that you pay for.

The number of grammatical errors is shameful, Hocking uses a paragraph to describe what easily one sentence could and her characters all speak the same way - like teenagers. T

I LOVE THIS BOOK!! Ahh it's so addicting. I'm adopting Alice's sleeping patterns thanks to this series. In the beginning when Alice was angry and upset, I was actually in a bad mood for her lol. I found myself snapping at my family for no reason other than I was upset for Alice. Crazy. I was seriously sucked into this book. It's almost 3am and I have to force myself to put my nook away now and not read Flutter yet. It's just so good! Okay I need to breathe and get some sleep. Lol I feel like an ...more

Esta segunda parte es un poco mejor que la primera pero solo medio punto más. El libro no me ha gustado porque no hay una trama sólida. La trama es sobre Alice que quiere estar con Jack pero no puede porque pertenece a Peter. Me hace gracia porque no se pueden juntar ni nada por Peter cuando él ni siquiera está ahí, se ha ido y no saben adonde.

No tiene un argumento sólido que no puedan estar juntos porque Peter lo dice y los mataría. Para eso que maten a Peter así podrían estar juntos. Además

Loved this book just as much now as I did the first time I read it 3 years ago!
Peter has always had a way of making me adore him! <3
Wish Amanda Hocking would release the 5th and last book, because I am dying to see how she closes the series out!

I was really looking forward to book 2 in the My Blood Approves series as I loved the first one but for me book 2 was a bit of a disappointment.

I'm in two minds about these covers as I think they could be stunning photographs but I think it's a bit misleading as it gives a creepy feeling to me but this book is by no means a creepy book.

It took a very long while to get into this book and actually it wasn't until the last few chapters when I really started to get into it. Even though there was a f

We'll this is the second book in the My Blood Approves Series. Alice is getting use to her new life, sort of. After Peter almost killing her and Jack almost telling her that he loves her - she is dealing.

Jack starts to realize that he is in love with Alice after he found out that Peter has a claim on her. (Always count on a boy to realize their feelings for a girl when their territory gets threatened). Anyways... the big sucky part is that Jack and Alice can't be together because her blood bond

I can't believe I wasted my time reading this book.

Honestly, this book is nothing but ideas stolen from Twilight and, I felt for some parts, The Host. There is no plot, nothing that progresses the story. Everything's a cliche. I hoped--expected, even--that the the story would improve, and that the stupid errors would disappear and the author's writing would be better and not contradictive, but unfortunately, no such luck. If you ask me, I think Hocking wasted her time writing this book.

I have consistently liked this series from book one to book two (and am currently reading book three). I really love how Amanda Hocking plays with the love triangle in a way that has not really been done before. I particularly liked the end, when that triangle came to a head and how the characters reacted. I love Jack, he is so endearing! I am so looking forward to seeing what happens in the lives of these characters.

The only thing I will say that was annoying to me were the incredible amount of

Huh I don't know how I feel about this book and I know that Jane has something up her sleeve I think she wants to become a vampire herself. The love triangle in this book is pretty intense and I am team Peter, yeah he was an ass in the first book and he only shows up at the end of this book but he was so sweet and common, honestly, he lost what he thought was the love his life however many years ago and all of a sudden this girl shows up and her blood calls to him and it is an instant attraction ...more

I was sifting through the various recommendations that Goodreads provides, when I saw the first book in this series advertised and it was being offered for 99 cents. Despite the errors in spelling and grammar, from lack of proper editing, the storyline is superb.

There are more characters added to this second book, yet I wish the author had spent some time developing them and giving us a background of where they are coming from.

We are kept on the edge of our seats as the unexpected unfolds. Mil

It is summer, Milo and Alice are hanging out with Jack at his house. There is a lake with a dock in their backyard. Jack, Alice and Milo are out at night swimming in the lake. Alice decides to go inside and help Mae who is preparing some snacks for Milo and Alice since they are the only ones who eat and doesn’t drink blood. Mae tells Alice to go change out of her bathing suit because it is cold in the house (they keep it cold because they are vampires). While she is changing she hears someone sc ...more

I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one! I really liked that it had more of Milo, I grew to love the boy a lot! Alice kinda annoyed me sometimes but most of the time I could see why she acted the way she did. I also started to get feelings for poor Peter, he's not as bad as he seems and I felt so sorry for him in the end. Can't wait to see what's in store for him in book 3. Again I gave this book 3 stars because it's also not one of the best books I've read, but I still really liked it ...more

"I'm wearing a purple thong."
"You're wearing a purple thong?"
Jack raised an eyebrow, but since I was drunk, I couldn't read on his emotions. I didn't know if it was an intrigued I'd-like-to-see-more eyebrow, or a disapproving you're-a-huge-slut eyebrow.
"Yeah. Wanna see?”
“An oblique angle,” Jack said, and his bout of jealousy was quickly replaced with glee. “Ha! I told you I would work that in!” 15 likes
