well it would seem that Alice is now the butch...and Jack has now become a sniveling bitch! GOD! Maybe Peter was not pussy enough for her! UGHH!! I really liked the first two stories but I could hardly stomach these last two...I felt extremely disconnected from all the characters that I had grown to fancy. Jack and Alice did really have a sweet relationship in the first two books, and it just seem to die off when Alice changed...I really would have liked to seen Alice have a go with Peter, sure...more

This is the fourth book in the My Blood Approves series. Preceded by My Blood Approves Fate and Flutter. The last book ended with Jack and Alice heading forward in their relationship pretty strong Peter and Mae with Mae���s vampire child leaving Milo with his human boyfriend Bobby still being themselves and Ezra moping. Alice Milo and Bobby go to visit Mae in Australia but things don���t go easily and it isn���t as great a visit as expected. They get terrible news from home and leave early. When...more

What struck me most about the latest in the My Blood Approves series is the evolution of Alice. She is at the heart of Wisdom. The title is appropriate - for she is growing in it herself.

Wisdom seemed to me to be a bit deeper than the past three books - more introspective, with more character growth than any other in the series. It is clear that Alice has left her teen years behind and is ready to embark on a young woman's life. Gone is the angsty feeling that defined her at moments in past nov...more

4.25 stars. I picked up this series after reading about how good it was for only $0.99 on the Amazon discussion boards (where I typically get all my advice for new series). I started reading them the week before Flutter was released and I was not disappointed!

I have really enjoyed following the whole gang through their adventures and transformations. Another girl in my office and I were anxiously awaiting Wisdom's release and both started it about the same time. I was slightly ahead of her and...more

I'll start by saying that I'm thrilled that the use of "come/go with" has decreased significantly in this book, although I'll probably continue to cringe each time I hear that phrase from now until the end of time.

Other than that...Good thing I loved both the Twilight and Vampire Academy Series, because I've gotten a huge dose of both with this series. I guess those who will understand this review the most would be the ones who have read the Twilight and VA series. Those of you who know of Bella...more

" four book, come to me"

"AHH! Algo tiene esta escritora que te hace que todos sus libros sean demasiado interesantes y de la forma que son. En mi opinión, veo un poco inmaduro a Jack pero eso es lo que me hace que me guste. A Peter lo veo como que si su rol en el libro fuera mas que nada como el mejor amigo de Alice que es sabio y todo ese tipo de cosas. Ya no veo ninguna linea amorosa y estor eternamente agradecida porque odio! Odiooooo lo triángulos amorosos! Los aborrezco, detesto, me nubla l...more

I kept skipping pages because I got bored, even Jack couldn't make up for it. I really don't have anything to say this time besides I'm glad I finished it.
(´*•.¸ღBexღ¸.•*´)
I thoroughly enjoyed the fourth book in the series. It has a lot more action, a lot more character development, and a lot less flip flopping of emotions, which drove me nuts in the third book. Alice finally chooses who she wants to be with, and though I was rooting for a different outcome, I'm content that she made the right decision. I feel like everything she felt for the other characters was less forced down my throat than in previous books, and I think that made the final outcome more real a...more

I will not write a plot overview for Wisdom since so many other reviewers have already done so. I would just like to write a few random thoughts on the book as well as the series. My Blood Approves is about missed opportunities: Peter refusing to come to grips with his feelings for Alice until it is too late, Mae not realizing the scope or magnitude of changing a child into a vampire, Milo ignoring the fact that eventually he will break Bobby's heart, Lief running away from his children and the...more

¿Qué más puedo decir del cuarto libro de una saga que no me convenció desde el principio? Pues la verdad es que pocas cosas nuevas, así que intentaré ser breve y concisa.

Este me ha parecido, con diferencia, la peor entrega de la saga y la clave de ello es que, en mi opinión, la escritora ha perdido el norte de la trama. Durante todo el libro (ojo, que aguante tengo que lo terminé) tenía la sensación de no saber muy bien qué estaba leye...more

I really enjoyed the action in this one! The lovey stuff is still there, don't worry your pretty little vamp loving heads over it, but Alice has developed her some ass kicking skillz! Also, I heart Bobby.

I found myself utterly enthralled and unable to escape from this series until I had read every last work available. With that said I finished all four available books in five days, and I have created a review that wraps them all into one. Alice Bonham is a quick witted and desperately honest character that readers will love to follow. She keeps that story entertaining yet light enough so that it offers an effortless read. When paired up with the mysterious Jack the story will take on mystery an...more

Well, we start off with Alice, Milo, and Bobby visiting Mae, Peter, and Daisy in Australia. They are getting a look at how Daisy is dealing with becoming a baby vampire. She is like all 5 years olds with temper tantrums, if she can't eat the human in the house, she throws a hissy fit. So, if she can't have the human, she decides that maybe Kola Bears might be a tasty treat. Then you turn around and she is coloring, looking cute as all get out, in her frilly dress and curly hair. Who ever said ha...more

RATING 5 OUT OF 5 STARS!!!!

Amanda takes us outback to the Northern Territory, Australia and back, in 'Wisdom'. In hindsight, maybe not outback enough.

Daisy is exactly what Ezra predicted. Poor Bobby is Daisy's target. Everytime Daisy lined Bobby up, I was laughing, maybe I shouldn't have been but it would have been funny to watch. Kinda a pretty little 'chucky doll' launching itself at Bobby. Mae isn't seeing straight and Alice has had enough of the little monster.

Leif is hanging around more a...more

Okay, so in a matter of two days I have read all four (currently released) books from the My Blood Approves series. I cannot say enough good things about these books. why? I'm not too sure I can put my finger on it. They draw me in, get me hooked, I want to keep reading to find out what happens, who loves who, who hates who, etc. The characters are all liable and you get to know each of them really well. Hard to do in a book. usually you get a good grasp on one or two characters and then the res...more

"Wisdom" starts off with Alice, Milo, and Bobby visiting Mae, Peter, and newly turned vampire child, Daisy. The trip is cut short when Alice learns of a recent murder of someone close to her. She is determined to find the killer and whether he/she is a human or a vampire. Alice is still torn between Jack and Peter but in a different way than before. She's in love with Jack, but with Peter, it's no longer a blood bond between them and she really enjoys being with him when she learns how caring a...more
Jessica (Firefly Book Loft)
Definitely worth the wait. This is 4th installment in the "My Blood Approves" series, but it has just as much romance, action, mystery, thrills, twists and turns at the first 3.

Almost everything about this book was enjoyable. You get to see Bobby, her brother's boyfriend, a lot more and he is so SO likable. A lot of the story takes place outside of the house, as opposed to the other books where a lot of the stuff that went down was in it. Leif is still in it which was awesome because I liked...more

First off let me say that I am going to review this with the impression that this is the final book of the series. I know there has been a lot of back and forth about the 5th book Swear, but after reading Amanda's blog post- with her included spoiler dissecting the love triangle check it out if you haven't seen it yet -I'm going to just assume that Wisdom was her conclusion. Now onto my review. I LOVED this book. I adored this entire series actually. Alice grew drastically in this installment. S...more

Ok, so I'm just going to start by saying that I have this problem. My problem is that when I start a series or trilogy or just a book with a sequel, I won't write my review until I'm like finished, because I just cannot stop reading for the like of me. I read all four of the my blood approves books in three days because I just didn't want to stop, so I've kind of been procrastinating with writing this review....

So to start, I think that these books were REALLY good. I mean there were like those...more

This book was my most and least favorite book of the series. I mean seriously why does the auther think that Jack is right for her he's a lover and she's a fighter. I know oppisites attract but it was different when she was human but as a vampire they don't make sence. The whole book she is fighting with Jack and herself because she loves Jack but that's not enough. Sometimes love is just not enough there needs to be more and with jack there isn't. I seems that everything she does is wrong to hi...more

This is my first review here! I really enjoyed this series. I have to say, I didn't expect to enjoy them as much as I did due to the price on Amazon. I am finding hidden gems in some of these what I have recently learned are self published books. I would have to give the story a big 5 stars for sure, it was well though out and each book had me wanting more. I would say that, as an avid reader, the only drawback to these was the editing. It didn't take me out of the story, but it got to be a litt...more

Since I'm hearing there is a 5th book in the works, I won't say this is my favourite book of the series, but rather it's my favourite thus far :)

While Alice still struggles to find her new place in the world as a newly "born" vampire, she takes huge leaps and bounds into finding herself in this book! She is fast becoming a strong and self-sufficient kick-ass vampire chick that no one really wants to mess with :)

I still have a hint of frustration in that Alice is so torn, and not knowing that Jac...more

I really loved the series, but my feeling are torn about the love triangle. I feel that Jack took advantage of Alice more than the nurture the author was implying.

Whereas Peter was more caring and self sacrificing. He has shown a great deal of character growth and deserves better.

Through the author comments I know Alice and Jack are meant to be, and that this goes with the theme of free will. But if she picked Peter it would still be her choice sigh.

I read the Trylle Trilogy before the MBA and t...more

This book had so much omotion in it.DO NOT READ AHEAD IF YOU HAVENT READ THE BOOK OR IF YOU ARE NOT DONE WITH IT. I was almost in tears when daisy died because she was just a little girl. I t was really sad how they described it. How you could hear the ripping of her neck from her head. Also whenjack was hanging over the endge i was so trembleing. I was like, Oh my gosh jack is going to,he is going to die, he is going to die.But the thing is,is thatthey didnt have a good ending for may,erze and...more

I live in Minnesota, and I write young adult paranormal romance and urban fantasy mostly. The My Blood Approves series is about vampires in Minneapolis, and its available now. I also wrote the Trylle Trilogy, which is a paranormal romance without vampires, shifters, mermaids, fae, angels, dragons, ghosts, or ninjas.

My latest book is Hollowland - a zombie urban fantasy set in the dystopian near fu...more
