I cannot really muster the words to describe on how good this book is.
to be honest I am not a huge fan of the first book, i'm not sure I really even liked the clockwork angel. may be because I tend to compare it to TMI. and I just find Jace even more attractive than Will so I really dismiss any memory of the first book.
but this book was different. the next installment of the infernal devices I can tell that this one s filled with passion and longing. OH MY GOD! It really unleashed the fangirl inside me. WOW! the kissing scene between the Tess and Jem and Tess and Will really made me explode! WHOA! it was that hot!
knowing Cassandra Clare. The Queen of all cliffhangers. well this one is no different that her other books. It has a shocking and heartbreaking ending and It leave me longing for the next book.yay!
as for MR. Herondale. don't worry baby I am on your side. you deserve Tessa Gray more than anything. YAY!

They will disappear in a POOF all of the kids 15 and below will be the one living in a whole new world.
I seems kind of cool right? living in a whole new place where no adults exist?! It is every child's dream cause to them living n a world with no adult is some kind of freedom right? This whole book grasp this kind of idea wherein children below 15 years of age, left to live in a whole new world where no adults exist...
I happen to just bump in this book cause Goodreads has this nifty feature where they recommend books according to your shelf. (NOOB MUCH) since i happen to love Unwind so much! This book is number one on my recommendation list.
as I was reading this book I was so amazed! It seems like all of my favorite TV shows is mashed up in this book! and it seems so surreal for me that the kids in this book are so smart and not only that they are Mutants, they posses different kind of powers and also they are disturbed kids with such unfathomable issues, some of them are psychos and lunatics and power hungry.
I highly enjoy reading this book but that only lasted on some parts, I begin to realize that as the story progress I find it kind of a blur, I mean characters are popping up everywhere, Dialogues are popping up everywhere, scenery is popping up everywhere, and I begin to realize that the book is like Animal Farm. Only instead of animals fighting over for power, Kids under the age of 15 are fighting for power, and infairness to them they know all about politics in such an early age. >:D
but come to think of it, I like how the whole book is written, since this book has such huge number of page, i find it to be an easy read, it wad written simply and not very complex and I really enjoyed it's writing style. I just find the whole book so-so. The plot of the book is not my cup of tea, I enjoyed it but didn't entirely like it. But I am planning on reading the other books in the series, since I like the characters in this book, and besides I want to know what the Darkness is and I think this book just contains a lot of mystery that I find really enticing. I wanna know all of it so bad.! so yeah, I am planning to read the next couple of books and I hope it'll be better than this one. :D(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 was actually disturbed on how was the first book is written , and i was expecting this book to be as twisted and as creepy as the first one. but NO! it surpassed on how crazy the first book was. Golly! i never expected it to be this way. Cathy is like an unleashed, untamed animal hungry for revenge! (and by that i love her so much) teehee, ow, don't get me wrong I hate Cathy for being all over the place, she is like sleeping with every man she ever encounter like eww.! (she even slept with a 40 year old guy, like sleeping with your brother is not enough gee...) even as questionable the content of the book is, even the taboo is all over the place. still. I loved the ending so much! GOSH! is Cathy becoming really crazy and twisted like her mom?! by the little act she pulled at the end of the book i am half convinced myself that maybe she is a Devil's Spawn. REALLY?! seriously! I am telling you! she is about to lose it. yikes!
I really like how this book is written, you know? kinda discreet even though it contains a questionable content, and i really like how the book highlighted Cathy's thirst for vengeance. whew! she literally blames everything to her mom! Every unfortunate event she encountered it all leads back to her mom! as much as i want to read the next three books. i can't seem to find any copies of it. *curses*. overall this book is such a ride. it'll make you sick. I promise you that but then again at the end you will fill satisfaction. That I can guarantee. :P
THE BOOK IS TWISTED BUT I STILL LIKE IT. BY GOLLY! MAYBE I AM TWISTED MYSELF. HAHA! REVIEW TO COME(less)

well actually i have never encountered a book as twisted as this, (another FIRST) awed at first, but then again even how wrong in every angle the plot and story is, it still captivates me, i want to read on and on and on until i finish the damn thing! i can't explain why, but the story is so god the book itself has mystery in every page you just have to savor ever bit of it just to satisfy yourself. it was that good but most of the time i feel frustrated in every page cause i just feel so sorry for the Dollanger kids. Kids of their age shouldn't experience that kind of sadness and torture. Filled with false hopes and dreams that one day their Momma will take them out of the attic and be filthy rich.
and I hate GRANDMA and MOMMA Foxworth. YES! i would beat and kill them if ever such people exist in this world. they are pure evil and i can't bear the inhumane things they did to the Dollanger kids, really! they beat them, starve them and lock them up in the attic. i can maybe tolerate how the Grandmother did this to them, but i was about to burst out of range when I have learned the awful truth that even the Mother is planning on killing her own kids cause she could keep her inheritance. BY GOLLY! that BITCH DESERVE TO DIE AND ROT IN HELL!
as for y'all who want to read this, the book is very very twisted, and you're in for a ride. it talks about abuse, incest and a lot of inhumane things that surely not of a typical person would think of doing. but yeah it is one hell of a book and surely i'll remember this one forever. i heard the couple of books in the series is even more controversial and even twisted as this one... but i am for the second book and see how the story of the Foxworth children will be. and we'll see if i still get to love this series or hate it as i read the next book of the series.(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.

this book is really twisted. just when you taught you'll get over the craziness and the goriness of the first book. YOU ARE SO DAMN WRONG! I have this impression that this book will be just about blabbering and talking about the AWOL's Rebellion against unwinding but i was so damn wrong. The first part is really really sick! especially the little snippets and the little advertisement on the unwinding. it got me really creeped out! I got this premonition that maybe 50 years from now this is the exact picture of what the world would be like.
Just when I thought I am done with the craziness with this book. It has more surprises that I never thought would come up. I was really irked when there i a modern frankenstine lingering in this book. EWWWW! I HATE CAM COMPRIX! EWWW! I know some girls like him cause he is the sensitive guy in the story. OH MY! I don't like him he is like a freaky stalker with dirty thoughts about killing cats or something, that is how i picture him everytime i read his POV.
The whole book is really AMAZING! I never thought it'll surpass the first one. More sickening things are happening here, and the whole flow of the book is well balanced there's a little bit of everything in every part. I really don't know what to expect on the next book. but I am more interested on Risa's fate. I don't know what will happen to her knowing she ran away and knowing there is a lurking frankenstine following all of her tracks. yay! can't wait for the next book. ! (less)

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 thought I have heard every internet slang there is but never have I encountered the word TWITTERCIDE! oh my! the main reason I've grabbed and read this book is because of the interesting summary and it mentioned the word twittercide? HAH! and I just really adore Hartly... reading her thoughts just made me laugh up until the last page of the book!! Yeah! that's how adorable she is.!
I wonder what would be the next book like, I hope it will be more excititng than this one, and I am looking for the blossoming Romance between Chase and Hartley... YAY! seems like I've found a replacement for Hex Hall , I know they have the different genre but it seems like Deadly cool contains the fun and quirkiness present in Hex Hall. :) (less)

Ok! this book seem to create a buzz due to its cover, I can't blame them the dress worn by the model was really to die for... OH! that dress is just... just damn! its great! and as crazy as it may seem I think I was drawn to read this book due to the same reason, (Troll Face).
what do I think of the book?
well when I've read the short summary of the book I was like "the book is gonna be like the TV series "The Bachelor" wonder if it will be cheesy?" well it turns out it wasn't cheesy. the first couple pages of the book just focuses on what it's like living in Illea the turmoil and the caste system that is under in their society in a way I felt guilty for thinkinh this book would be like really cheesy and shallow but it's not. You just really feel symphaty for the people of Illea cause I know how the caste system works you are not allowed to ascend in your rank unless you marry someone above your caste. ANd the first couple of book just narrates the struggling and hunger of the people of Illea, In the back of my mind I was saying that maybe this book is not that bad after all, in fact it's like the classy version of the Hunger Games, instead of fighting they get to win the heart of Prince Maxom, enable for them to be entirely rich. so I was greatly enjoying mysef in reading this book. Yeah. But it was cut short until I've read the second part.
The second part of the book, I'll have to say that that's where the cheesy part started to happen, and for me the whole "Selection" process was too long, and I was expecting for a catfight to happen between the girls, but none happened, I guess the second part of the book didn't provide enough details and concreteness, or enough adrenaline rush for me to really, really like this book. But the characters are good, I love them all. America, is a the main heroine in the story, and I guess she is not that bad, she just have conflicting feelings toward the Prince and Aspen. but nevertheless I did like her. she has so much passion in her craft, which is singing. as for the two boys I guess I am more on Prince Maxom's side (Sorry Aspen) well mainly because the book provided more information for him. so I guess I favor him more than Aspen.
The ending was really UNFORGIVABLE! I've read an entire book, and it won't give me enough conclusion of who is selected to be the crown Princess! and I was so damn furios I can't help but say that I've given time to read this book, but it left me no answers... awww!! I was sooooo disappointed, like really,really disaapointed! I hope the secons book will be far more better than this one. :( (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)
