This book felt more like f**spoiler alert** Since I finished the first installment in the 5th wave series (review) I had to read the second one ASAP. This book felt more like filler than an actual story. The book picks up a few days later of where The 5th Wave left off. This book concentrated mainly around the transformation of Ringer and fill out a lot of holes while there are still many left to be answered. We get the vague idea about the alien infestation however many questions are still unanswered.
The POV changes was within three characters, Ringer, Cassie and Evan. Cassie and Evan deals with world outside of camp haven however not in long term length. While Ringer counts her days in another 'camp haven'. Cassie and Evans storyline takes a backseat while we see the process of Ringer taking on a new environment all together. Through this change in Ringer we get some explanation which also leaves a whole lot of unanswered questions.
The third book supposedly clears everything out, which will be released next year. Between the two released books this was not that appealing to me but I shall wait for the third book to have a final opinion about the series. ...more

EDI**spoiler alert** I feel immobile using good reads app from my mobile, so I guess a review later when I have a keyboard that's larger than a grain. EDIT My keyboard is large so here goes.
My thoughts are are rather all over the place, let me gather them while I rant about how I missed reading books and blogging about them! I missed it so much! I feel like I am out of the loop on books, new releases, and mostly my blogger buddies.
As for the book, I started reading it after I saw the movie trailer (I will link the trailer below). The trailer was great, so when I saw it was based on a book I had to read it. The story changes point of view between the lead characters Cassie and Ben. I had a bit of trouble at the beginning keeping up with the changes of POV and flashback.
Lets talk about the characters, Cassie is a normal sixteen year old trying to survive the alien infested world while still crushing on boy(s). I have come to terms with the fact that attraction is fatal, you can not help whom you like. Specially when you are a sixteen year old girl. She still was level headed and and very brave. And to tell the truth she is one from the many female characters that I love and adore that did not piss me off. She made great life choices.
Ben AKA Zombie, I liked him. He too was a very 'teen' boy caught in the middle of his own angst and alien infested war yet still trying to make it in the world. He acts like a protector due to the circumstances he faced. He is the hero every young adult book is made of.
And of course I can not stress enough how much Evan Walker made an impact with his Edward Cullen characteristics. SPOILER ALERT he is one of the different species and an good egg. In spite the stalkerish behavior he still makes you melt with his cuteness. Evan made me had mixed feelings. So I will love a to read some of his POV in the future books.
Overall I loved the story, I feel a kinship to the characters, I can not wait till I read more. So I already got the second book and I am looking forward to start reading it tonight. ...more
Let's just start with I WANT THE NEXT ONE GIMME GIMME!
You know the feeling when you read something amazing and want more but alas the next installmentLet's just start with I WANT THE NEXT ONE GIMME GIMME!
You know the feeling when you read something amazing and want more but alas the next installment doesn't come out any time soon? Yeah this was one of those reads for me. That's why I like reading my series when they are all finished. I don't have to agonizing months and then forget why I liked the previous book in the first place. Probably noticed not a fan of re-reading my already read shelf unless it's a cupcake book.
So all things aside specially the fact of me not getting my fat grubby hands on the next book, this was excellent. Again the book cover, it's always been a put off for me and no Zombies did not look like that from what I gathered. So yeah if you are a fan of Zombies, this is a must read. Put it on your TBR along with it's previous book. ...more

This is the second cell phone novel I have read from Bekka Black. And like iDrakula this too was impossible to put down till the very end. iFrankensteThis is the second cell phone novel I have read from Bekka Black. And like iDrakula this too was impossible to put down till the very end. iFrankenstein is the modern techie take of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein.
Over the years there have been allot of movies, series, plays based on the original book, I ought to know cause I am a big no HUGE Frankenstein fan. However from all the Frankenstein takes I have witnessed thus far, iFranktenstein is one of the most memorable one. I suppose if Frankenstein was a teenager in this time of era I imagine he too would be quite the genius and create a monster such as VV that lived in the internet.
iFrankenstein is definitely something worth checking out if you haven't already. And if you are looking for more cell phone novels like iFrankenstein I would also suggest you check out iDrakula, another awseome text/email tale of Dracula. ...more

A Healing Heart was a great change to that stereotypical reading.
What attracted me most to the book was the word building, and Melissa did a great job bringing her characters to life. Making them so believable. I simply adored reading about Collin and Bailey, my only complain is the story ended to soon.
What I struggled with was, sometimes character would go on a bit longer than necessary with their own monologue, making it hard to stay focused. Other than that it was a pretty solid.
If you are looking for a quick, well put together YA romance, A Healing Heart is worth a shot. ...more
Before I go ahead and start ranting about what I thought about the book lemme just say, I haven't read anything quite like this before.
I am fascinatedBefore I go ahead and start ranting about what I thought about the book lemme just say, I haven't read anything quite like this before.
I am fascinated by the idea of angels and demons and after looking at that beautiful cover, I just had to read the book. The illustration itself represents a lot about the story. Even though Dominion is my first book with angels, (well not quite angels but Grandinians and Grantinians) I really enjoyed reading about the characters.
Abigail isn't quite what I expected when I started reading Dominion, she was a surprise. Kindda sneaked up on me. Abigail is not a normal teenage girl, and like I said she kindda sneaked up on me. Gideon, here is one very twisted and sexy creature, that I liked reading about. No. Really. I did! He scares the life outta Abigail, and practically everyone, but I still likes him. It felt a bit like he was suffering from split personality disorder but heck, I liked him evil.
The author did an wonderful job bringing her characters to life and really awesome job with the twisty turns of the story that kept me guessing what's to come next. Recommended to readers who likes reading paranormal young-adult....more
