Despite the title and the mesmerizing cover, Alice in Zombieland really has nothing much to do with Alice in Wonderland. There are a few references here and there but It stands on its own, making it a unique story. Gena Showalter puts her own twist on zombies and delivers something a little different to what most of us have come across before. Alice in Zombieland is a fun filled adrenaline ride, full of thrilling, engaging and explosive scenes While I was a tad bit disappointed that there wasn't alot of Alice in Wonderlandish stuff going on, I ended up loving the whole book. Ali's crazy dad, her adorable little sister, and her loving mother are all taken away from her in an instant where she learns that her father’s frantic whispers of monsters are closer to reality than she first suspected, her life is turned upside down. Losing everyone she ever cared about, Alice is put into the care of her Maternal Grandparents leaving all she had ever know behind her.
Enter Cole Holland.
I knew he was strong, determined, protective, and that he cared about his friends more than he cared about himself. He obeyed no rules but his own. In the Wild West days, he would have been an outlaw.
Cole is the leader of the zombie slayers, a total badass, and extremely irritating/intensely attractive to Alice--No seriously, The moment their eyes meet, a steamy vision takes over them, where they can touch and taste one another.
Though Cole is a bit of asshole, he grows as a character, subtly changing his ways for Alice.He proves his worth a million times over when he kills zombies, protects Alice, and puts up with her stubborn streaks along with her seemingly constant questioning. ( Which HE FINDS ADORABLE!! *FANGIRL SCREAM*)
Ali is not your typical sit-back-and-take-it heroine she is head to head with Cole, not taking his shit no matter how intimidating and super smexy he may be.I LOVED how protective he was of Ali! You could see how much he didn't want her hurt, how much he wanted to protect her. Another thing I love about Cole/Alice is that it isn't Insta-Love, their relationship is built up on trust and actually getting to know each other.
With reference to Alice in Wonderland, I surmise that Cole is the mad hatter--As he wears 'caps' often. That's only a guess, but I like it.
The 'Zombies' exist only in the spirit realm, they cannot be seen or touched by just anyone, but that doesn’t mean they can’t do real harm. In order to fight them, Cole and the gang have to separate their spirits from their bodies, and it’s the first thing Ali had to learn as well.
All in all, I really enjoyed Alice in Zombieland and look forward to reading the sequels.

I did like the comradeship of the girls in 'Sick Minds' and thought this book had an interesting concept that, given the chance, could have evolved into a more full and rounded story. I liked how the characters were written and how with each one of them I saw a potential friend. 3 stars, because It just wasn't long enough and I had hoped for a more dramatic twist as to why Caille(The protagonist) was in 'Sick Minds'.

E.L Todd gave me an advanced reading of the first book in her new series 'Forever and Always.' and I must say, I was not disappointed.
Once I began reading Only For You I could not put my laptop down. (I'd be lying if I said my laptop didn't follow me everywhere...and I mean EVERYWHERE.) It took me 2-4 hours read this book due to my 'no putting the laptop down rule.' The friends-to-lovers story of Scarlett and Sean is realistic and relatable. Scarlett and Sean have a relationship that I want. They're best of friends, the kind of friendship where they could be themselves. Scar and Sean were there for each other for every break up and heartbreak, They have seen each other at the worst and best. However, This all goes down hill, When Sean, devastated after being dumped by his Girlfriend, Penelope, and very drunk-Scar and Sean have sex.
Complications in sue, with Scar and Sean misunderstanding one another after the night of mind blowing sex, the breakdown of Scar's career and her return to her brother, Ryan, in Seattle.
I have to say, I LOVED the relationship between Ryan and Scar. It's so well written and it adds to a family element to the book which you can't help but love. I couldn't help but thinking of the quotation from Lilo and Stich: ''Ohana means family, family means nobody gets left behind.'' in regards to Ryan and Scar who no matter what happens have one another's backs.
There a very sweet love triangle begins. Ryan's best friend, Courtland and Scar have a affair. I find, That by having Scarlett sleep with another man besides from Sean made her so much more realistic. It fits with today's modern outlook on sex which was awesome to see. (By the By, It's not cheating, Sean and Scar were never together as anything but friends besides the night of mind blowing sex that was not meant to happen.)
I am trying so hard not to spoil the living daylights out of this book but it is sooooo hard. So, we come to the conclusion. I really enjoyed this book, and I look forward to more books in the series.
This book is a breath of fresh air-so different from many of the books being published lately. If you are sick of sappy romance that is over dramatized-LOOK NO FURTHER, WE HAVE FOUND THE AUTHOR FOR YOU!!
E.L, Well Fucking done! I adore it. Looking forward to more from you.

Simply amazing.Miss Me Not is a heart wrenching, gut ripping read-It had my heart in tatters then had me begging for more. I was crying by the end-literally sobbing, snot running from my nose kinda sobbing-not a pretty sight but what can you do-and this gut wrenching sobbing BARELY happens to me when reading-the only time I remember crying this hard was when reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
Suicide/wanting to die will, not matter what, be a hard subject to write about-aswell as touching. this book is just, amazing. There is no other word for it.
Madison is a shadow-or that's what she considers herself to be. Madison and james,her best friends made a well thought out suicide pact-which is shot to hell when another student, Mitch takes his own life. Beating them to it. This leads Madison-who believes its her fault for her horrid past and her parents not loving her-to reconsider taking her own life. Madison's teacher WhoreCat(Mrs.Jones)makes her go to tutoring-Enter Dean, Sweet, loving and JUST PLAIN PERFECT! This is all I can say about Dean:
He is just perfect and funny and kbfhufbashjgbjashbshbs-Just....Marry me please.
I loved how Madison learned to open up after being shut down for years, her character development is amazing-She is a completely different person by the end. The only thing about Madison that I didn't like is how when she started hanging out with Dean, she forgot all about her 'Suicide Buddy' James. It didn't seem like her to just forget him like that-But in away-if you think about it, she was trying to avoid the person she used to be-and I think that is totally understandable. From The start I kind had the feeling of what was going to happen to James by the end of the book-and I wasn't to surprised though I was really upset.
Madison's mother is an EVIL Pyscho B I T C H- I WANT HER DRAGGED THROUGH THE STREETS, ROCKS THROWN AT HER AND SPAT ON--Or better yet-just hit her with a Bus. She was a mother who should NEVER have been a mother-HOW DEAR SHE? My God-I wanted(and still do) Kill her. Just NO maternal instinct in the least. She did the WORST possible thing to do in the situation Madison when she was 13.
Miss me Not is a book that should not be missed-I bought it on Kindle but now I'm gonna get it in paperback. I will force my friends to read this AMAZING book. Realistic, emotionally gripping and hits home every time.

In the beginning you think you are going to be thrown into a world of suspense-and at times you are. I wasn't to sure if Rilke would go in search and solve the crime-and by god he took his time.
Rilke is the 'detective' of this Gothic noir thriller.He is a gay auctioneer, living in Scotland who stumbles upon some graphic pornography during a house clearance-Rilke feels responsible for the woman in the images, He feels compelled to find out if the images are real and if the woman in the images is in fact dead. This leads to a long series of events to the an....anti climatic ending.
I enjoyed seeing the dark, grungy side of Glasgow-as well as trying to understand the deeply flawed Rilke. He is a complex character(who we barelly know anything about by the end of the book), sometimes not understanding what he wants-he seems to be easily sidetracked-particular by an amateur filmmaker who he wants to 'fuck'.
The book is written in a stylish, graphic with most of the characters are vividly and realistically portrayed, showing perhaps how grim and seedy Glasgow life is. The writer really could have done more with the ending-but it was neither the less a good book.
Robert Carlyle read the book beautifully. His voice projected all the emotions that the writer had intended to show.(less)

I was looking for a medieval book with a tough heroine and and alpha male-and boy did I find it.
GREAT book-The Heroine,Ryen is a Knight/warrior woman but not so much that you can't see she is still a woman-She i basically a tomboy-hates dresses, rather be out side with the boys type of girl. So when she meets Byrce,The Prince Of Darkness, she knows all about his ''legand'' and he calls her beautiful under the influence of tuth powder-anyway with his being so sexy and mysterious and stuff-she obviously wants to jump his bones. But never dreams of it until her BROTHER,Andre suggests she let of some steam with him. Problem, Ryen is a virgin, having never being interested in men as she is in Byrce.
The Hero,Byrce...Needs to be directed to my bedroom. That is all. He is completely Possessive and oh so honerable. He is also ready to start yell the 'SHE IS MINE' and 'YOU ARE MINE''s at even given moment..I loved it.
The only let downs about this book is that (view spoiler)[ The hero's friend Talbot tells Ryen that while she was sick he slept with another woman. WE NEVER GET TO SEE HER RAGE AT AT HIM! She dosent even mention it. He is all for the 'have you slept with someone else' but she was like Mums the word. Readers know that No, he did not sleep with anyone else through out the novel-but still i would of loved to see her get all jealous. (hide spoiler)]

Great book--I finished it quickly-I could imagine the hero/heroine being together in real life.Daisy Reminded me of ME! Daisy is a dreamer who more often then not can be found with her nose stuck in a book-Like me(and many goodreaders.)She and her sister,Lillian are the most like me in this series(Plus they are my favourite books in the series). Daisy has my shape of mind, while Lillian has my temper and quick to spring to swearing.
When Daisy and Matthew met for the first time in the book-(They knew one another previously) I just kept seeing this in my minds eye :
Matthew Swift is just...Besotted,enchanted,deeply in love with Daisy since she was 14! She never noticed him before,since he was super skinny and as Lillian puts it ''a bag of bones'' were his suit hung off his shoulder, and his gaunt face. However,after years of separation,it appers Matthew has grown into his looks ergo:Looking like James Mcavoy in my head.
The romance is so natural and dialogue is just wonderful-I really enjoyed/reccomend The Wallflower series for people who enjoy historical romances with witty heroines and Amazing heros which, by the way, I would marry them all.
There are some lovely surprises about the other wallflowers. (view spoiler)[Annabelle had a baby girl, Lillian had miscarried the child we had learned about in 'Devil in Winter' and now is pregnant with another child-During the birth the baby is born:A girl. At the ending of the book we learn the Evie is pregnant. (hide spoiler)]

We see a greater love form between Ellie and Rain.The both learn each others faults and how to accept one another through tough decisions. Rain,basicly, acts like a typical guy when he dosen't want to believe/accept something. He runs. But he comes back after realising he needs Ellie, not just as the potentional resucer of the fey and tarien race but because she is her. She is his true mate.
I adore the twists and turns in this series. It keeps you guessing and wanting more. I basically hopped from one page to another, racing through the book and trying to find the answers for all the things left un-said. I did however run to my Goodreads friend and ask them about some answers-Yes, I cheated , sue me! I have to wait for weeks until I get the nest book!
For the record, I seriously believe this has Tv show potentionl! I mean could you Imagine this on HBO! Then I'd have to awesome fantasy shows to watch-This and Game Of Thrones. HBO GET IN ON THIS!!
I found Lord of the Fading Lands and Lady of Light and Shadows in a secondhand bookshop-it was well worn but the covers are so pretty!(WELL DONE,Judy York !) ANYWAY-I found this series while going through some users selves and wanted to check it out. So, imagine my surprise when I found these beauties in 'Connolly's bookshop'-Let me tell you I scared the owners and other customers with my high and girlish squeal of unadulterated Joy WHICH by the way, I rarely utter. I can only assume what I looked like...:
After running to the checkout with my two books clutched to my chest , screaming with childish glee whilst telling the shopkeeper how much I loved their shop, I Promptly ran home and fell asleep from all the excitement of the afternoon. I did not get around to LORD OF THE FADING LANDS for about 3 days-Until I woke up at 4am and decided now was as good atime as any to start a new book. Well...I went through half the book in four hours, adoring every page.
Let Me be upfront about something-THIS TOTALLY HAS AN ANIME/MANGA feel to it. C.L Wilson IF You ever by chance come across my review, HEED MY WORDs...CASH IN ON AN ANIME/MANGA!! It would be gorgeous and sell like hot cakes.
I ADORE the characters. They have such depth and meaning-expecially the Fey. HERE ARE THE MAIN: Ellysetta Baristani,Heroine,24 has been dreaming of fey legands and poetry her entire life,hoping she could have a love as strong as the Fey poems proclaim. She gets her wish in the form of Rain, Tairen Soul,Feyreisen of the FADING LANDS. Ellie has never been the ''pretty'' one or the most courted but she has never complained and gives everyone her empathy. Ellie has a quiet strength,dignity and power that makes her perfect as The Tairen Soul's mate, His Shei'teni(TRUEMATE OF THE SOUL-thats really good-better then the heart). Unbeknowest to them, Ellie has a bit of a past...with an evil mage in fact. (MAGE IS BIG-HUGE-In this series-Pay attention.)
Rainier vel’En Daris,Hero,Tairen Soul,Over 1000 years old went mad with grief when his e’tani(MATE OF THE HEART NOT THE SOUL.) Sariel was killed during the MAGE Wars-he went on to scorch the earth-for thousands of years he hid in his torment and madness. Which he is taken out of when evil is trying to overtake the fading lands. But then...Ellie's soul calls out to him, and the truemate bond is begun. Rain is beautiful. Black hair, purple eyes, tall,handsome,can shapeshifted into a Lion/Cat/Puma/Tiger/Black Leopard type magical being with wings and amazing fey abilites.
Isn't he pwetty! Rain Has never had this type of conection with anyone, not even Sariel, before. HE must protect and guard his Shei'tani.He wants and needs her more then he needs air. Here is a picture from C.L Wilson's site of The Idea of a Tairen Soul:
C.L Wilson creates a very enchanting and captivating world which, in some cases, has the same problems as our world. I Loved the interweaving plots, twists and turns, the vivid and weirdly relatable characters. I found LORD OF THE FADING LANDS really easy to get into-I couldn't pick up any other book until I finished it and when I wasn't reading it-Ex:At My friends sleepover-I couldn't help but wish to be home and reading it.
By the end of the book, the reader is a part of C.L Wilson's World and begging for all the answers to the questions left behind-In fact, I'm itching the start the next one.(Its obviously lefted open ended because it is a series, that follows Ellie and Rain until the finale book.)
A well-written fantasy debut by C.L Wilson, That captures the readers and does not leave the reader alone until the last page.(less)

First of all, Find me a viking as sweet and endearing as Wulfgar-anyone? No? Okay. This Guy does EVERYTHING for Rhowenna-EVERYTHING. He is more then willing to give up all he owns for her, and loves her from the moment he lays eyes on her.
The heroine, Rhowenna, who is often confused about her feelings of desire and longing for Wulfgar is also endearing and a wonderful character-they both have heart and even in their story which I believe is different to everyday type of Viking romance they are relatable.
The only thing I didn't like about this novel was the amount of rape mention--The heroine is not raped-due to Wulfgar's protection etc etc-by him or others. However, Morgen-a maid who works for Rhowenna(and pretends to be her in order to save Rhowanna) is raped like...alot. She does get a happy ending too. But it's kinda bitter sweet.
I know it may seem childish of me, but even knowing from history books and whatnot, that Vikings tended to rape and pilage-I would have prefured something less realilic.
ALL THE SAME! I really enjoyed ''Swan Road'' and Think you,dear reader, should go READ it!
As usual, I totally saw a blonde Heath Ledger(from a Knight's tale because any hero with blonde hero for me just is Heath OKAY?) as My Wulfgar.

Johanna Lindsey is my favourite author and for me, she can do no wrong-except perhaps, ''Until Forever'' cause that just pissed me off in the end. ANYWAY, Johanna writes the 9th Mallory/Anderson novel about Boyd, the youngest of the Anderson brothers and his tale of love and lust for Katey Tyler. As usual, Ms.Lindsey's characters are full of life and humor as well as romance-and unquenchable lust. :P

Suzanne Fagence Cooper writes a story using Effie's Letters to and from her family and friends, her and her husbands diaries.
When I first picked up 'Effie' in Waterstones,I was expecting some great love affair-But it's more then that. It's the woman behind the two men she called husband. After finishing the book, I felt an acute sense that I knew Effie and I really felt for her. I came away from the book feeling as if I had made a friend.
Effie was probably one of the more influential woman of early victorian woman's rights. Effie, married to John Ruskin,a renowned art critic in the Victorian England as well as a man who refused to consummate his marriage. We are left in the dark sadly about why John Ruskin refused Effie-except by what Effie said and what Ruskin himself said.
In a letter to her Father,George Gray,after five years of marriage and the catalyst of falling in Love with John Everett Millais,who's patron was Ruskin! Effie finally told her father about her unfortunate marriage and his apparent reasons for his rejection of her. "He alleged various reasons, hatred to children, religious motives, a desire to preserve my beauty, and, finally this last year he told me his true reason... that he had imagined women were quite different to what he saw I was, and that the reason he did not make me his Wife was because he was disgusted with my person the first evening 10th April."
John Ruskin confirmed these in his statements at court: "It may be thought strange that I could abstain from a woman who to most people was so attractive. But though her face was beautiful, her person was not formed to excite passion. On the contrary, there were certain circumstances in her person which completely checked it.''
His Disgust with Effie's person is unknown.
Effie went through the undignified act of a virginity test. Effie passed,proving that Ruskin had not consummated his marriage and therefore it was not legally binding. Effie got her annulment. A year after the annulment, Effie married John Everett Millais. The Man who had made her want to be free in order to marry again, even though she was hesitant about entering into another marriage after the marriage she had just been through-a marriage she never fully got over.
You would think the tale ends here, but no. Suzanne Fagence Copper takes us through Effie's entire life up until her death. We find out the fates of her children--The trails of Victorian England.
Effie's life was not all sunshine and happiness after her second marriage. She was no longer accepted into Queen Victoria's Presence because of her annulment. Queen Victoria thought Effie should have kept her mouth shut! Even though Victoria's children still liked Effie and Everett. Her children and her parents and sisters were riddled with sickness and insanity. To go through this must have been hard and increases my view that Effie is in fact one of the strongest Victorian woman that I know of. Effie is my favorite but Georgiana Cavendish comes in second, as of now.
One of the most romantic things that I have read of in a long while is the story of when Everett Millais was dieing in his deathbed,dieing of throat cancer,Queen Victoria's daughter, Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll went to visit the Millais and while she was there gave Millais message from the Queen, who wondered if there was anything she could do for him. John Everett could no longer speak due to the cancer and simply wrote ''Yes,let her receive my wife.''
To me that shows an enduring love, that even on his deathbed he thought only of her.
People familiar with John Everett Millais work will have seen the portrait of thirteen year old Sophy Gray-Effie's Younger sister-simply titled 'Sophy Gray'. The painting is-Apparently-a sensual and ''knowing'' image which provoked questions of Millais relationship with his sister in law. There was a strong affection between the two, and it could have possibly lead to a mutual infatuation between them.
However,I don't believe this due to the fact that there is not enough evidence and Effie, as well as Her parents did not seem to care about the friendship between the two-Letting him chaperone her. It is RUMORED that Effie had to send Sophy away because of concerns that she and Millais were growing too close. But the sisters remained close until the end of their lives and Effie often invited Sophy to stay with herself and Everett. My interpretation of the 'Sophy Gray' is of a girl coming into awareness of her beauty and her body. The knowing look is sort of like 'I know I'm hot.' And 13 year old Sophy Gray did-so much so that she tried to stay that way as she grew into a woman. She suffered from Anorexia nervosa. She refused to eat thinking she was to fat and became semi infertile(she later went on to become a mother of one.)-not having her ''monthly illnesses''. Basically Anorexia nervosa is the Victorian Version of today's anorexia. Suzanne goes into great detail about the treatments-which I found very interesting.I know that sounds weird but I have a obsession with knowing how 'insanity' was dealt with in the past as I have OCD and often wonder about past treatments.
ANYWAY! Back on subject, BRILLIANT BOOK! I felt as if I walked away with a friend in the ending of the biography. A Beautifully written, well-researched biography which gives reader's a look into Victorian life.BLOODY GOOD SHOW, CHAPS! 5 STARS!!!

Sex...Sex..BDSM...Sex...Hot tortured hero's...relatable, if slightly masochistic heroine.
WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT!!!??
What i found strange/interesting about this novel is that it is in first person pov which is really strange for a romance novel-which are mostly written in third person.
Ana,The heroine is sort of your everyday girl, she is smart,attractive(she would tell you other wise),and highly inexperienced in the ways of love--yes, we are talking about my favourite type of heroine,(this is where I creep you out) A virgin heroine. She is independent but dosen't see how men react to her and has never been as attract to a man as she has with CHRISTEN GREY.
I am a sucker for tortured hero's and if anyones a tortured hero, its Christian Grey. Christian Grey is the adopted multi-Muillion-trillian-aire , who has a eclectic taste in BDSM. Oh, you naughty fucked up boy...The things you do to me--I mean, Ana.
I freaking LOVED the smoldering tension between the Hero and Heroine-from the beginning of the book, it was obvious who was going to be falling in love with Christian Grey...ME. If I had him, I'd be trying all sort of BDSM things with him, if he wanted.
It is obvious to see why Ana, trys so hard and falls like a ton of bricks for him.
Oh, the emails...I think that is my favourite part in the book-I just love their playful/flirty chatter. I reminds me of love letters, back in the day of the victorian or whatever era. But obviously not like this because, I am sure Victorian men/woman wern't talking about contracts to become a submissive over letter.
I read, a review before saying that it had hints of the 'Twilight' aspect in it. I totally saw this. I think it has to do with the everyday female first person pov, the dangerous mysterious hero who warns the heroine off. Yup, quite twilighty-ish. Readers will put themselves in the situations in the book- like many readers did for The Twilight saga.
I don't think it is done deliberately, even though I did find my self sighing a few times ''Oh, Edward... you poor silly fucked up man.''--Then I'd realise what I'd thought --''I mean Christian...yeah...Christian.''
Do I reccomend this: Hell Yes! If You like steamy naughty sex-then this is the book for you!
