A real page turner but with a very serious and quite sinister story.

I knew there was a film but I wasnt interested in sparkly Vampires. However, one day I gave in to it and bought all four and I read all four in about 5 days. I feel in love. I was never a reader before I got these books and I havent stopped reading since. So having read them all I will do my best to do the review from the first time I read Twilight.
Twilight was like nothing I had read ever before. I had read a few vampire books growing up mainly the Amazing Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. Its very unique and at the time of publishing would have been a very unique take on vampires from anything I had read before.
The story its told from Bella's point of view and thats a big plus for me. I love books that are wrote in first person. I get sucked in quicker. Bella's is just the average 17 year old girl who moves to Forks. Her life is turned upside down when she meets the alluring Edward and the story really takes off. Their relationship borders on obession and that what Twilight has turned into for me an obession. There is an eclectic bunch of characters, some we love, some we hate and some we just love to hate. The characters I really like in this book were the Cullans. We learn a small part of there back story that leaves you begging to find out more.
People who know me will tell you I am a Twilight nut. I really am obessed with. However, I will be the first to admit that Twilight is no way a mind blowing piece of literature and most people who have read this know this. It's a quick, dazzling tale of girl meets boy and fall in love and thats the essential story of it.
Overall, Twilight is a extraordinary love story that that captures the imagination of the young and old. And leaves you thirsty for more. It dark, compelling and very seductive a must read to any vampire fan.(less)

I loved the movie and I have read the story but I can't really remember all the details but I remember the main plot. This book takes the legend and makes it into something new and twisted.
Overall Even though I found the start of the book a bit of a slow starter and I wasn't a big fan of the character Ireland, I did end up really enjoying the story. I loved how the author has put her own twisted spin on the original "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" making it fresh and unique. I am very looking forward to seeing how the rest of the series will continue.

I couldn't wait to get started on the finished copy and it did not disappoint me at all. Forever Kansas is a companion novel to the Ruby Series and ideally to be read after Forever Blue. It's is told from Brennan POV and I think is quite possibly my favourite title in the Ruby Blue World.
Forever Kansas is told from Brennan's Pov instead of Ruby's. I loved Brennan in the original books but I fell completely head over heals for him in this one. It was genuinely refreshing to get inside his head and read from a guys voice. (I haven't read many books that the POV is male) And to view the other characters through his eyes was fascinating. Especially Ruby. Ruby is kick ass and awesome but in this installment we see her how Brennan see's her and it's simply magical watching these two characters feelings develop for one another.
The story is fan-freaking-tastic! I was hooked from the first line. It's thrilling, exciting and god damn hilarious! Rarely a book will have my physically laughing out loud. Yes, there are books that will give me a wee chuckle to myself but Forever Kansas and all the books in the Ruby Blue series always have my stitches! Mainly due to the awesomeness of Jeremy! He is just so bloody comical!!
If you have been following me you all should know I loved these books! Julie Cassar is my favourite indie author and her books always seem to get better and better. She is so god damn talented and I hope more people will pick up her books!!
I highly recommend everyone to get started on the author's Ruby Blue series. They are super fun, smart and kickass. With amazing plot twists and lovable characters you will not be disappointed. (less)
Oh My F*cking God!!! Evie Hunter has did it again!! Every time I read one these books I always think how can they possibly get any better? But Evie Hunter manages to blow the previous books right out of the water. The Pleasures of Spring has everything I love in the an explosive read, action, hot and steamy kinkiness and witty characters!
The Pleasures of Spring is about Roz Spring who has been on the run over year after being a witness to a murder. With a murderer on her tail she is forced to go into hiding under the protection of ex-ranger Andy McTavish. However, as they pretend of be a couple to help with keeping Roz hidden ,the chemistry between them both is electrifying. Can Roz stop herself from falling of Andy as well keeping herself alive from the murderer who determined to kill her?(less)

At first it took me days to actually get into the story. However, once I got to the halfway point in the story I couldn't put it down.
Deeper is about the after math of "Revenge Porn". Caroline's ex boyfriend posts sex pictures of her online and Caroline is completely damaged by this. She loses all her confidence. However, as she is trying to cope she ends up befriending West. As they grow closer Caroline grows as person and tries to move forward from the online pictures. But it's not an easy ride.

Holy F**k!!! Holy Hell, OMG....just oh my f**k.....Freaking WOW!!!!! - That pretty much sums up on my feelings and reaction to Unravelling Oliver.
I have never really thought the opening sentence of a book was enough to have me hooked. Sure there are books with pretty amazing openings but it usually takes more than that to have my attention. Until I read Unravelling Oliver. "I expected more of a reaction the first time I hit her."
Upon reading that I was 100% hooked onto this story. It is a shocking and slightly disturbing opening line that had me captivated. Unravelling Oliver is a tough one to describe without giving spoilers and I am going to try my hardest to keep this spoiler free because it is something you just have to read and discover for yourself.
