But this book sucked me in. It sucked me in good too. Twilight is an addicting book, as soon as you put it down, you want to pick it up and read more of it. Who is Edward and what's up with Bella? Who's Jacob and why would Edward just be honest with Bella?
For some people, this book will open a whole new world to them. It'll remind you of the feeling of falling in love for the first time, at least that's the best way I can describe it and I don't mean with Edward Cullen, I mean in general. Face it, Edward doesn't have much of a personality to fall in love with. As much as I disliked Jacob, I was secretly rooting for him. He had far more personality than Edward! But there's just something so addicting about this book and about this story about two creatures who aren't suppose to be together. Maybe it's the fact that it's forbidden, maybe it's the thrill of the thought of dating a vampire, maybe its because Bella keeps making things difficult or maybe you just want to see if Edward will give in an kill the girl. No matter what it is, this book will grab you and won't let go!(less)

The book itself is interesting, however I found a few parts to drag on and had not much to do with the story. And for a few chapters I actually grew bored of it. But finishing it was worth it. This is an amazing book with a surprise ending. Definitely worth the read.(less)

I didnt have high hopes for Dear John and it wasnt that much of a page turner, but it was still a really great read. The relationship (or lack of) between John and his dad was saddening and left me wanting them to understand each other a bit more, but that rarely happens in most cases in real life.
The relationship between John and Savannah was a bit predictable but the surprise he came home to was unexpected, as well was the ending. It leaves you wishing they had fixed things, but at the same time like I said before, things dont actually play out the way you want in real life.(less)

Ciaran is on the run and he couldn't possibly be making them happen from how far away he is... so naturally, everyone starts blaming Morgan. She's powerful, she uninitiated... maybe she's causing these things to happen without knowing it.
Hunter brings someone to help Morgan learn more about her powers and how to control them. She starts tutoring Morgan as soon as she gets there.
The story shifts, suddenly we're aware of what Alisa is thinking, of her plans to write an article to "warn" people of this "strange magick" being practiced. Honestly, this whole part annoyed me. Alisa hasn't been in the coven long enough and she was the youngest of all the members. I was convinced that Alisa had something to do with all of the "accidents" since every time they happened, Alisa was around.
As much as I love Sweep, I felt this book was a hassle to get through. Now that Cal and Selene are gone, I just feel that the story has lost its edge. Doesn't mean I hated the book or that I'll stop reading the series, that's just how this particular book made me feel.(less)

There was too many names to remember, too much detail to focus on what's actually going on. It just felt too busy and all over the place for me. I was hooked on the romance between Aislinn and Seth and I wanted to know more about Donia, about how she ended up where she was and just about her in general. So I kept reading and after a few more chapters I was hooked.
What can I say about this book?
Aislinn (or Ash) can see faeries. Her mother could see faeries and her grandmother. At least, she thinks her mother could, as her mother is dead when the book starts and she lives with her grandmother who is very strict about the rules of the faeries. She sees them, but they don't know it and she pretends like she doesn't. But when a few of them start stalking her... she knows something is changing, something is wrong. Something that has to do with her. Then she see's him, Keenan in human form, and he's talking to her! Trying to catch her attention and that's when she knows something is definitely wrong. She tries to avoid Keenan and go about her life like she always has. Until Keenan shows up at her school and expects Ash to show him around and after that, he follows her around like a puppy dog. Her friends approve of her going out with him because he's gorgeous! And they don't seem to be fan's of Seth... and so, everything starts to unravel. Secret's come out, surprises, and the biggest decision that Ash will ever have to make. For herself and for her loved ones.
In the end, this book was a fantastic read. After getting through the first few chapters, I enjoyed every second I spent reading this book. The characters were amazing, their stories were addicting, the plot was definitely a page turner. The Winter Queen was the perfect villain; ruthless, heartless and control hungry at it's finest! Seth was adorable, seriously every time something cute happened between Seth and Ash I wanted to give my husband a big hug and tell him to not let the faeries get me lol.
It's so hard to review this book without giving spoilers! I'm not a really big fan of faeries, but this book changed that. I'm looking forward to reading the rest in this series and learning more about their world. (less)

At first it seems like it's going to be a bit like Twilight and I hate saying that because I hate when people say that. But I can't deny that's what went through my mind at first. But it is completely utterly different. Ever can read minds, she doesn't know how to turn it off and since the death of her family, she's had a hard time with allowing people to get close to her.
Ever kind of annoyed me, she was too dependent on other people but convinced herself she wasn't. She was constantly hot and cold over Damen and refused to hear him out, instead she would jump to conclusions about him and his actions. I liked her friend Miles, though I can't really tell you why at the current moment. I wasn't a fan of Haven and how easily she trusted Drina over Ever. Speaking of Drina? I hated her! Amazing villain! I cringed every scene she was in and she just... irritated me! I absolutely love Riley! I didn't think I'd like her so much, after reading a few reviews of Radiance I was under the impression that Riley was immature and annoying. But she was totally the opposite. I love her relationship with Ever and how she worried about her older sister. Now, Damen. I don't really know what to say about him. I like how he used flowers to express his feelings and how patient he was with Ever. Just wished Ever would give the guy a chance to explain things!
Even if I did find Ever annoying, I did enjoy the book and it's an excellent start to a series. I loved the characters and Alyson's take on immortals. I'm curious to know more and more about Summerland. I've always been interested in past lifetimes, and that might be a big reason why this book intrigued me. Even though it's about immortals and not... past lifetimes. Either way, I'm excited to read the rest of the series!(less)
