what can I say? The last book of the infernal devices blew me away. a lot of things just happened in this book. a mixture of drama,romance,magic and a lot lot more.
this book was written really well, I enjoyed every single page of it. and I really admire cassie clare's writing, on how she showed not just romantic love but also a love for your friends and family. she showed such vivid strong emotions each character held that made me emphatize with each character, the twist is just really unexpected.
this book was a great energy booster to start my year right.! another book series that ended well. I will surely miss William, James and Tessa.(less)

Beautiful Creatures is now a major motion picture! It even has a trailer! OH MY GOD! I am so shocked! believe it or not I am planning to watch it even hough I am not really crazy about the first book.
Truth be told , the first book is really such a blur for me, I decided to read my book review and I just gave it three stars and I was really clueless on what's the happenings on the first book. I just decided to read the 2nd book cause I wanna watch the movie and I just wanna know what the sequel is all about. Reading this one, I have to catch up in every thing. I have to patch up simple happenings that is mentioned in the book in able to catch up with the second book. But one thing is really evident in this book I still remember how girl-ish Ethan thought is. I still think that the book is narrated from a point of view of a girl.
as I was trying to catch up with this series, one thing I find different from the first one is that somehow the "magic" part has really improved. It has gotten really RICH AND GOTHIC I really like how the whole magical world was described very vividly... story-wise i liked it, although on some parts it gets kinda annoying cause Lena is becoming really Emo, but the shining moment of the book is the whole magical part, and I really like the Brit Librarian. YAY! I wish I get to see more of her from the next books.
as I vaguely remember the first book has this cliff hanger ending, I guess this one has a cliff hanger too. I guess the ending sums up that I will read the next book. :D(less)

I find it really interesting that the main hero has no idea who he is or what he is. but he knows stuff that he has no idea how he knows it... when I was reading it. I was really intrigued and every page is killing me cause i really wanna know who Jason is, what kind of demigod is he. he knows crazy hero stuff which i think is so much cooler than Percy.
Just when I was reading this i can't help but feel nostalgic all over again, cause I love the Percy Jackson and the Olympians with all my heart as I was reading this I can't help but to feel giddy all over when past characters from the Percy jackson series appeared in this book. (Annabeth,Chiron, Rachel... etc. ) Just when I thought I am over my demigod fantasies, this book just barged in to my life. and I think I'll love it even more than the Percy Jackson series. KYAAA!
Fun set of characters in this series! I think in this book Rick Riordan highlights some of the gods in mount Olympus that wasn't given much attention in the previous book series, cause it is always about Poseidon, Zues, Athena... and I would have to admit that I used to belittle the Aphrodite camp cause they have nothing special but in this book we get to meet the daughter of Aphrodite Piper, and I get to see Aphrodite cabin in a whole new light. They are more than just a pretty face. and I also love how the characters have more than just one power and abilities.
Overall: a fantastic book! everyone will surely enjoy it, especially if you are already a Riordan Fan. You'll love this series even more.

My first read this sembreak. and I enjoyed it. :D
Alice in Zombieland didn't quite capture my expectation on what this book would be, i thought that it is gonna be like the fairy tale Alice in Wonderland , but the caterpillar,mad hatter and cheshire cat would be all zombies and Alice is the savior of wonderland from the zombies lurking in it. The book is nothing at all like that.
But I did get to see a hint of Shadowhunter vibe in this novel, I mean teenagers killing Zombies who are invisible to the naked eyes of mere humans?? hmmm. Smells like TMI to me. haha! but nevertheless i did enjoy the whole zombie concept, something new and refreshing I've been living my whole life thinking that if a zombie bit you, you will become a zombie yourself. well the thing is in this book, it doesn't go like that. and after the forest of hands and teeth ,i haven't quite enjoyed any Zombie books lately, and I haven't been anywhere near a book for about 3 months now, so this one just fit all my depressions and longing. kyaa..
the characters are really nice, Alice is a character that i really look up to, she is in a deep set of depression cause of what happen to her parents. and I really admire how strong she is, and she thinks that killing zombies is her main purpose in this world.I just love her character.
overall the book was an incredible read for me, the book cover is something i like also. I am definitely looking forward for the next book. i like to see more Cole and Alice moments. and also I want to see Kat and Frosty moments also. I mean, what would happen to Kat and Frosty if Frosty knew what kind of sickness Kat is carrying. i really can't wait.. :D (less)

so this would be the second book of the Revenants series, and to be totally honest I forgot some parts of the first book was, so I was a bit clueless when I was reading this , some characters I was a bit not familiar to them the only character that I remembered the most are Kate and Jules , I remembered Jules cause I was rooting him for Kate and I remember Kate cause well... she is the main character, so in other words , I forgot what the first book was all about and some parts I remember but not all of them, so I was uncertain if I should read this one, but its something about the summary that made me want to read it, even though I can be somehow confused if I read on.
Turns out when I've read this one, I recalled some of the events that occurred in the first book (THANK GOD!) and I had somehow read this one smoothly, some changes happen, like I admire Kate character progression in the book, woah! Kate giving the finger to one of the revenants was really bad ass!! woah! really caught me off guard, and I can say that she became tougher and stronger in this book than the previous one, the story line was somehow good, but in my opinion the story isn't much exciting as I thought it would be, I admire the short story of the "Immortal Love" introduced in a book, and for me, I dig more of their love story than Kate and Vincent's and well... I've guessed that who the bad guy was, I mean it's not that hard to predict that Viollette is one psycho revenant, her sugary sweetness toward Kate is not really ordinary, so I smelled something fishy about her character. hah!!! caught you there Violette. So I wasn't surprised how the whole book turn of events were.
The ending was really sad, I feel soooo Sad for Kate, poor girl. can't believe that the book ended that way. hmmm. well my guess for the next book, would be Kate looking for a remedy that happened to Vincent, or she will turn a revenant herself (is that possible)
Overall: the book was predictable but still worth reading, that's why I gave it 3 stars, I'll read the next book for sure, and I am hoping for more developed storyline... :) (less)

I even thought i would write a review that will rant about it, but you see something about The Beautiful Dark that got me really compelled the momemnt that I read it... was it because there was two hot guys appeared out of nowhere in the book? or was it beacuse the whole concept was really different.
to be honest I can't pin point what got me to like this book. But one thing I am certain the book is very light, and I just feel like the whole book made me really comfortable while reading it. the story about stray and rebellious angels got my attention, and the way it was delivered was really flowy, ahhmm... you won't feel any hesitations or doubts on how it was narrated, I really liked the campfire story you all know I'm a real sucker for legends and myths and that campfire story was really something.
the characters are somehow like able, not a big fan of Skye I think I like Cassie and Raven than her, I mean Skye is just the kind of girl that doesn't know how to emphatize with Asher and Devin's situation, OMG! she has really got the guts to flirt with both of them, knowing beforehand on what their intentions and fates are. MEH!
I have a huge intuition that the second book will be better than this one. I just wish there will be more magic, angels and a lot more background story in the characters. So in a way I have high expectations for the second book. Hope It will be better than this one. (less)

I am not the biggest fan of the first book,Unerathly. just gave the first book a 3 star rating, cause I didn't exactly enjoyed it as much as the others, and i was not planning to read this one, besides from the fact that netgalley denied my request to read an advance copy of the book, (yeah, I was so sad that they denied my request) haha! I guess the first book didn't give me enough excitement to read this one. But since I am out of books to read I decided to go for this one.
what to say? what to say?
I say that this one is a big improvement, we all know that Clara has an unknown purpose right? I mean her purpose is not certain on what it is about, well in this book this kinda somehow answered that question, and I was really pleased on how this book was written , I mean I really feel like every sentence and words spoken by the chracters are really hmmm.. Magical? woah! i really don't know how to describe the words used in this book but it has somehow gave me this feeling that I am living in world full of magic and wonders.
I like how the secrets were unraveled in this book, OMG! it's like Cynthia Hand just gave me a poundful of chocolate and shove it right in my mouth! oh yes! that's how good this book is, and I guess I appreciate the characters in this book, lots of new and intriguing additional characters were introduced here.
as for the romance part. HELL i don't care to which boy Clara will end up with! both guys are really HOT and worth of Clara's heart! KYAAA! and besides i am not after the romance in this book, I am after the angel stuff and unraveling more mysteries on who Clara is and what is her real purpose.
OH my! reading this one is such a remarkable experience. looking forward for the next book and I know It'll be a thousand times better than this one. :D (less)

OOOKKKAAAYYYY!!! there is really not enough words on how much I really like this book, so please bear with my review. I can't really get over with the whole story of the book... *HEAVY SIGH*
this book is about a post apocalyptic world wherein angels are the ones who are destroying our world we are introduced with the main heroine Penryn and her sister page and her very unstable mother.
Of course the book's title speaks for itself that the book would be about angels, but as I first read the first page I just thought the the book would be like Hunger Games cause really, I mean the resemblance is like there. The unstable mom, the tough big sister and the vulnerable little sister, so I was like thinking that maybe the books isn't really about angels, but as I read on a whole new concept of angels were introduced to me, OKAY, so I was Taken aback that angels could like possibly destroy our world, that is like seriously never ever crossed my mind, I know angels are not really the gentle creatures that we know, some YA novels have introduced me to that concept but WOW! THEY ARE LIKE DESTROYING OUR WORLD!! OMG! I was like really shocked. BUT! my hysteria regarding the plot wasn't really a hindrance for me to like this book.
One thing I like about this book is how well it is written, I really feel like I am living in to this destroying kind of world and everything is just so dark and uncertain, another thing is the dialogues of the character. I just feel like the personality that the author feeds us with the characters really matches the dialogue that they are suppose to possess. Like how Raffe really talks like this modern kind of angel and how Penryn gives comments that is well suited to her personality. Another thing is the mash up of the concepts of this book so we have angels , we have aliens, we have dystopia and we have a slight glimpse of the apocalypse ... WHAT MORE CAN YOU ASK FOR. Everything is present in this book. and it is a shocker on how well those elements go together. Even though its kinda different that those different kinds of elements are present in this book.
I like this book so much, It just kinda took long for me to read cause I was back to school last week, so things are kinda like pretty hectic. This book is really awesome, and I am encouraging every Young Adult Lit lover out there to read it, cause this book didn't get that much attention. DO READ IT! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
I guess this is one of those books which I just really fell in love with the whole story, I can say that this book is one of those books which i didn't fangirl, but just fell in love completely with the whole book concept. :D(less)

I have encountered A lot of YA drool worthy boys, like erm... let's see ahm a Hot Vampire *check* , A hot Werewolf *check* , a Hot Shadowhunter *check*, A hot Slayer *check* , A hot faerie *check*( ok,ok stop with the Fangirling) but I have never ever encountred a hot, drool worthy *coughs* Alien!?
Obsidian is the second novel from Jenifer L. Armentrout the author the Covenant series, I am not actually a huge fan of of the covenant series cause the book is the exact same clone of the Vampire Academy series, just different names for the Characters. so I was a bit skeptical if I should read this one, an oh the aliens being gorgeous is kinda intriguing so I was a bit curious so i decided to give this one a try.
the book wasn't much first just the same ole story of a very average girl who happens to bumped along strange creatures. What really caught my attention is that the main heroine has really something in common with me, like duh, she has a book blog and she likes YA books, so yeah the main heroine serves as my anchor when I was reading the book.
But it turns out that the book was great the plot is original, unlike the author's previous one, and I find myself really sucked in to the book, like every page is really gripping and I was introduced to a lot of foreign stuff about aliens cause it seems like i really have zero knowledge about them. It turns out that not all aliens are green and slimy some of them are HOT! oh YES HOT! I mean Daemon is like... like... gosh i have three words for you SWEET.BABY.JESUS! Crap ohhh Crap! hahahaha!
i really like how the book ended I mean a lot of debut book of the series it always end up that the boy always get the girls affection and they live happily ever after, but Obsidian's ending was different, never have I expected that the ending would be like that. HMMM. so i am most definitely looking forward for the next book cause some psychic part of me is saying that it would be filled with A LOT OF STEAMY AND HOT SCENES ***KYAAA***

This is gonna be somehow a very selfish review cause I will compare this book to the Mortal Instruments series, cause this is the prequel of the book right? so somehow when I was reading this I compare everything to the mortal Instruments. so don't read this review if you think I am one Selfish B**** >:)
this book was set in Victorian England wherein Shadowhunters have English accent (sexy Right?) haha! just kidding. we get to meet our heroine Tessa Gray who has an ability to shape shift in any form and not just only that but she get to have an access on the minds of the person she's replicating to. so first thought about this book is that I was expecting it to be really action packed just as I felt when I first read COB. It turns out that it is action packed but it just took a bit wee too long for it to come maybe like the near ending. I feel like the first couple of pages of this book was full of dialogues and blabbering not much seems to be happening as I was reading it. so maybe I've got 2 hot guys to drool for (Will and Jem) I was actually expecting Will to be like Jace like maybe to have some kinda strak of a bad boy attitude but it turns out that Will's Character is a mystery and a bit restrained like I really don't know what to think of him I can't even give a one word description on who Will is. as for Jem, well I really like Jem. GOSH! he is like described as this oriental God with an English accent!! OOOHHHH!! what is so not to like and I really like his back story on what happened to him on China. it's a bit sad. and I can say that Jem's character is honest , caring and very straight forward. hmmm my type of guy. :P
as for the plot, ad I've said I can't make much out of it at first but as I read on everything becomes clearer and more concrete, the whole book starts stirring by maybe on page 350, cause everything was eventually revealed at that point of the book, what I really appreciate about the plot is that it is filled with twists and treachery. Never have I expected that the story would turn out like that. what I guess the downside of this book is the ending and the Romance aspect, I really don't know if I am rooting for the love interest in this book, hmmm... I mean I fangirl like really a lot on Jace and Clary and Simon. But on this book Nada.Zero.Nothing. I am not rooting for tessa X Will nor Tessa X Jem. meh.
Overall: it is a great read, worth the money and reading time. But I have to say that I like the Mortal Instruments more than this one, although this is a great read I would still prefer Jace,Clary,Simon,Izzy,Alec and Magnus. *wink* (less)

Many of my friends in goodreads seem to like the book so much they even gave it a 5/5 star rating.
the book is actually like X-Men, we met a character named Juliette who seems to have a lethal touch, everything she touch will die. I would just like to say that Juliette is like the first female main character I encountered wherein I actually consider her a SAINT, she is the nicest person i have ever as in EVER have met! who would take blame to something that you didn't do? Juliette will! I was actually expecting a character so provocative and bad ass in this book, cause it seems like Juliette has been through a lot. you can just tell by reading her thoughts on the beginning of the book, I guess i would've consider her CRAZY. Just by reading through her thoughts, and i kinda feel sorry for her. her ability did really make her kinda demented and downright creepy.
as for the plot of the book, well it seems very cliche and everything. Girl meets Boy and Villain secretly fancies the main heroine. ermmm. the middle part of the book was actually a bit exciting, cause i really have no idea how will the story will go on. I was actually making a mental note to myself that I'll actually will give the book 4 stars, but as the story goes on, everything is just so typical. the ending was a bit simple and flat nothing to keep me on the edge and wanting for the next book to come out. I guess the only redeeming factor of the book is the romance aspect of the book. I like Adam and Juliette's intimacy. very wholesome yet will make you pant. :P(less)

I am never a Dmitri fan I mean he always makes cameo appearances in the first 3 books and i pretty don't know much anything about him. He is just a well... a vampire. but in this book we get to meet and know Dmitri in a different kind of light.
first off. I never would have thought that Dmitri was a father, and not just a father but a very loyal and sweet husband. Maybe If i haven't read this book I would have never ever thought that he has this kind of personality that I would never thought the he would possess, and at the very end of the book I fell in love with Dmitri's character. I mean i still have my eye on bluebell but Dmitri's character was a really great shocker for me, cause it is just too hard to absorb that he still has humanity in him and I never would have imagine that he is this very loving and gentle character.
as for our gal Honor. well I like Honor cause she survived all the traumatic experiences she went through and at first I just thought that she and Dmitri has this attraction cause they both went through the same stuff but the revelation in the end was really amazing. kyaaaaaa!! oh my gosh Nalini Singh! you are one AMAZING writer.
I really like how this book is written, i think Nalini Singh is the only author that can deliver such sexual tension in her characters. ooohhh! this book was written very well indeed. Part of me is Happy that I've read this book another art of me is sad cause I wanna read the next book sooooo bad! ooohhh I wonder what will happen to elana and raphael and of course Bluebell... eeppp.. eppp. I'll try to read psy-changeling just to help me get over this madness with this series.
