I love the story of Hades and Persephone so I was eager to read a modern retelling of this story. I really liked this book. The characters were interesting and their actions understandable. I personally liked Thanatos the most. I liked the setting and the whole concept of a "friendly" underworld since that stayed true to the original greek concept of the afterlife. Which brings us to another pro point for this book: The mythology. The story had it's unique touch while always staying true to the original myth of Persephone. ( I especially liked what the author did with the whole Orpheus myth, since I always thought of this one as my favourite)
The romance though felt a little rushed and I could not really understand the (view spoiler)[change Hades went through (hide spoiler)]. The ending itself was maybe a little too much romance for me, but that is just a subjective thought and may be (or definitely is) because of the fact that I am not that much into romance stories.
Over all the writing style was redeable and the pace very good. I just sometimes felt that I "outgrew" the whole genre which made me read slowlier. I am really sorry that this book was the one that made me figure this out, since I would have really enjoyed and loved it had I read it 2 years ago. But that is definitely not the fault of the book! The book was really good and had a great story.
Oh and one thing that was really great about this book? That twist at the end? I definitely did not see that coming and it was a great cliffhanger! A recommendation for all YA paranormal romance fans out there!["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>(less)

When I started readig this book I thought it would be a funny read and different from other demon books. After all we are talking about a girl that lives in the attic of a church (which is pretty cool by the way), has a preacher father with a TV show that thinks all vegetarians are abominations, and tries to summon demons using a twister matt with a pentagramm she painted onto the back of it and ingredients she got via ebay. Than the demons entered the picture and I changed my mind a little thinking this book may be darker than expected. It is not, which kind of disappointed me a little. I really like evil demons but I am always open for some funny ones, too. I am a huge fan of Jonathan Stroud's Bartimäus books for example. But the further I got with this book the more frustrated I got. The demons are so far from evil it actually hurts. You could consider this a pro point for being fresh and new but with them constantly refering to themselves as evil it is definitely a minus point.
I had a few other minus points on my notes in the begining but the overall funny atmosphere overshadowed them.
Sometimes I got the feeling the book tried to hard to be funny and the constant poop-jokes were really anoying. After half of the book I got a little bored, too, since the story did not feel like picking up any pace. The plot seemed to slow down with each page and the ending was really forseeable. The last twist was, in my opinion, not shocking at all. The motivation of the characters was really confusing for me, too. I could not understand what they were all about and the romance felt really forced. The only one I really liked was the little side kick. He was funny and negative, like a real demon. But the characters themselves, except from their motivations, were interesting enough to keep me reading and stopped me from droping the book halfway through.
I scrolled through some other reviews on goodreads and people were complaining about all the swearing in the book. I did not mind the swearing in the first half of the novel. But after the second poop joke I kind of got bored by all the swearing, too. It felt forced.
I think the over all problem I had with this book was the fact that most of the jokes were not funny for me. It started reading good, I thought I would end up with a 5 star review but in the second half the negative points just got to much to be ignored.
Funny moments cannot carry a story alone when the rest is missing. I think that is the problem this book has.
But if you are looking for a light and funny read, and if you think poop-jokes are funny, this book is definitely a recommendation for you(less)

I think it is really hard to write a review for a book you liked so much than writing a review for a book you did not like at all. Bashing things you hate is always easy but actually finding the words to aknowledge something you want the world to read is really really hard. So before I go into much detail let me just say one thing: If you are into paranormal books that are a little darker, if you are into love stories and knights in shining armour, if you are into books that leave you breathless craving more than go and read this book. Like seriously, read it now!
I was so hooked by this story! I did not expect to like the book so much, I have to honestly say that the whole "Highschool-drama-thing" made me think I would dislike this story. So I thought about giving it only 4 out of 5 stars. But the ending was so great and the positive points definitely outweighed the negative points. Therefore I went with 5 of 5 stars. Here are some of the positive points:
I really liked the characters. They felt real, like actual people I met in school and not characters out of a book. None of them was really the villain or the hero. Everyone made mistakes and did things they later regreted. Or acted honorable and did things because they were the right thing to do. They all were really three dimensional, which is always a huge pro point on my list.
I really loved the atmosphere. Quinn encounters demons, Aaron has psychic powers, and nightmares wait behind every corner. All these things come to life between the pages and are described in a beautiful, picturesque and none the less easy to read writing style.
The idea felt unique and fresh. I cannot say much about the idea without getting the feeling I spoiler you all. But it definitely was something different.
But the main reason you all need to read this story? Because I need to talk to someone about that ending! Oh, that ending! The whole next paragraph can be considered as a spoiler, so read with caution! You know those endings were everything works out perfectly, everyone is happy, and all loose ends are tied together perfectly? Yeah? Do not expect that. This ending leaves you hanging. I actually screamed "What? You cannot stop now!" so loud that my mom heard me over the TV. (Which is like a little miracle since she's getting a little old and turns up the volume a little too much) I love those kind of endings because they make you want more. All in all this book felt like the beginning of a series since everything in it was building up for the final moment. And that final moment was huge! Seriously, I would just love to keep writing about the shock I felt when the big reveal/twist came up. Through the whole book I got this feeling you have, when you're angry at the characters because they do not see what seems so obvious to you. You feel safe because despite all the demons and nightmares going on in this story (which are all described so beautiful and vivid I actually shivered from time to time) you know that you figured the ending out and everything will get better. And then - BAM - the ending happens. I really did not see that coming and I often figure out how a story ends.
At first I considered it a rather light read, wich is kind of strange since it's not a light story. Maybe that's just because I enjoy reading it so much. I can connect with the charactes and their feelings of despair.
So in conclusion: This book is tragic, sad, dark, and romantic all in one. I recommend it to fans of the paranormal YA Genre, and even to those who don't consider themselves YA anymore. Just read it! (less)

And it is one of these hard to write reviews where all I want to say is: It is awesome, go and read it! And before I start to completely fangirl over this book and the fact that I can now see the movie (yay!) let's get some facts straight:
The writing style was good but I sometimes felt it was a little too casual. That on the other hand made sense since it was told from the point of view of a teenager. And maybe it put me off from time to time because I just outgrew this kind of thinking... The idea and plot was really great. I loved the whole trust-no one-thing. Usually plots like this are really forseeable for me but I have to say that when it comes to this book I have no single clue who to trust. They all do not seem trustworthy enough for me. I really adored the characters! Especially Lesley the lovely side kick :) She was so cute and tried to help as best as she could. My friends are amazing but I would not mind having her in our clique, too.
And now: May the fangirling begin! (This is where the descent review ends)
I just love the first kiss scene! Not the one at the end of the book where they are in the church. But the first one, when she jumps through time the second time and sees herself kissing Gideon. It was clear from the begining that these two would end up together. And I really hate it when a romance story is so obvious to the reader but the main characters just do not get it. Because of that little scene the awkward I-kind-of-no-who-you-will-end-up-with turned into actual knowing which, in my opinion, turned the whole thing around and I really liked that.
I have a very great theory about Gwen's heritage and the whole mystery about Lucy and Paul. For me it is really clear that they are the true parents of Gwen. Lucy stayed with Gwen's mum until she gave birth to her and then ran away with Paul. We already know that those two are in love and that they want to stop the Circle from completing the ritual. It would definitely explain why Paul is so protective over Gwen, why she is the only girl in her line with black hair (Ned Stark's rule of hair colour based gen tests always works!), and why Lucy says she looks like him. It makes perfect sence. And i just love Lucy and Paul together. The whole "Marrying on the Titanic"-thing was drop dead gorgeous. I just love the book. Therefore I am more than desperate to get my hands on the next book and find out how their story continues. The ending had a really mean cliff hanger that was not really a cliff hanger.
The only thing that got me really confused was the fact that everyone was talking about Gwen having magic and she said she does not have magic though she is the only one that can see ghosts. Does that not count as magic? But if I am alowed to speculate about the next two books: I am sure it is a good thing no one knows this detail.
Fun Fact: When Gwen's mom tells her about the wardens for the first time she mentions Karl of Hessen-Kassel as one of it's former members. That may be not important for you and I am only bringing it up because I lIVE in Hessen-Kassel :D
And I just have to say: I am a little proud that this is a German book that got turned into a movie. You know I do not know many German authors that are succesful abored. Two would cross my mind right now: Kai Meyer and Cornelia Funke, maybe even Wolfgang Hohlbein. But the majority of these worldwide bestsellers you hear about in the blogosphere are Amercian or English. And do not get me wrong I think one of the great things about globalization (maybe the only great thing)is the fact that I am able to read all those amazing books. It is just nice to know that a few people are holding up the flag of my hometime, too :)
And now I am off to see the movie so I can give you guys a full book to movie review :) Love and Words KJ(less)

The problem is, whatever I write it will not do The Mockingjay justice. I recognized that a lot of my reviews are with a high ranking so I promise myself I would not get thrilled so easily in the future. Than I read this book. I am more than just thrilled. Whenever I finish reading a book I have this desperate urge to write my thoughts on it done, before I forget them. And now I’m feeling just the same. I need to write a review, before I forget anything about the greatness of this story. But maybe it would be better to just sit back for a little while and think about the book. Because the story of Katniss has a hidden meaning and tells the reader something. The book teaches something about war, how to protect, how to loose, and something about human cruelty. There are not many contemporary books that have a message. Normally you find those messages just in old classics by Schiller or Goethe who tried to teach the people something. But the Hunger Games trilogy is different, there is a message hidden in every book. And you do not even need to read between the lines, it is right there in the open.
When I was younger I used to read books I loved in one sitting, stayed up all night just to finish them. As I got older it became harder to find such books, since I had less time and got distracted. I'm glad to say the Hunger Games series made me fall back into old habbits. It was unbelievable hard to put those books out of my hand, even after I finished reading them. From the first page until the last word I was utterly amazed by this great book. It is definitely better than the first two, though, I loved them, too. Suzanne Collins has a wonderful writing style that tells the story without to many details. She makes every word count. And she has a great way to show you, whenever you think the happy end is getting closer- bam- there is no happy end in war. The interesting thing about her characters is that no matter how hard I try I can’t figure out which one I liked the most. I liked them all, even the bad ones, and especially the cat. Both cats :) There motivation, there feelings, everything was totally clear and understandable. Oh, those feelings. I cried, I loved, I was sad and glad the same time, there is no feeling Suzanne Collins did not push me through. The book is filled with feelings, the story lives from that. Just like in my review for the first book in this series I just loved the details and parallels to the Romans. Panem et Circenses, just to name one example. It is utterly amazing how much this whole series was though through. Naming Panem after that phrase gave me chills because of the deep meaning she showed through that. So instead of writing a long review I just say “Thank you” to Suzanne Collins for writing those great books. I can say, with no doubt that they belong in my list of “Best books ever written” and the third has the highest ranking. And I am deeply sorry for every other book that will follow them, because it will be even harder to get me as thrilled as I am now.
I loved the ending. There it is. I loved it. A wonderful and amazing book. I do not recommend this series. I will just say: READ IT!

And here is what I thought about the book:
The story takes place in a dystopian version of North America set in the near future and follows the protagonist Kate Eriksson. The world is at war. Kate is 18 years old and lives with her family somewhere in the middle of nowhere. All she knows is that something is very wrong with the world she lives in and all her parents tell her is a lie. One day she meets Hunter and he gives her the chance to learn something about the truth. But Hunter is not who he seems to be. They both find something in each other they would have never expected.
What I liked the most about this book was the clueless ness of the main protagonist Kate and that she knows not much about her world. The story is told from her point of view and is therefore really mysterious. The reader does not find out what exactly happened to the world. I needed to think about the book while I was reading it and to put the parts of the puzzle together while Kate was doing that, too. It was not too easy as in other books but on the other hand not too confusing. This really turns the book into something new and unique in the wave of dystopian/ post-apocalyptic stories that become more and more mainstream these days. And I always love it when a book starts with some action and you don't need to fight your way through a dozen chapters before something finally happens. Everything Kate ever thought to know or not know crumbles around her as she learns the truth about her family. Cassandra Giovanni gives Kate a unique voice and her actions, even more important her feelings and thoughts are understandable and don’t seem to come out of no where. Hunter on the other side is mysterious and dark but gives Kate and with that the reader the chance to see him from a different side. I really liked how everything turned out with them. Both, protagonists and supporting characters are three dimensional. The author knows what she is doing and has a nice easy-to-read writing style. Every character seems to hide a secret or pretend to be something he isn’t. There is a lot of mysteries going on and a lot of truth to be unfolded, but that never distracted me from the romance. The author is able to connect the storylines perfectly, one of the main reasons I liked this book so much. I never needed to think about the book as much as I thought about this one to be able to write a review. There is something mysterious about the story that just keeps you reading and reading. As desperately as Kate struggles to find the truth and deal with it, I wanted to find out what was going on and raced from chapter to chapter. Sometimes the story slowed down a little, but it was never so much that I would call it a negative aspect.
I didn’t like the ending that much, but I can’t tell you a lot about why I didn’t like it, since I don’t want to spoil anything. It was a good ending, but it was just not my type of thing :D It was in my opinion (view spoiler)[too romantic and too perfect (hide spoiler)] Because of the fact that the ending was the only negative thing about this book the positive things outweigh and the story convinced me completely. All in all I recommend this book to fans of the genre and everyone who wants to try something new. It is a book that makes you think but can still count as a light read.
And I’m pretty sure that we will hear some more from Cassandra Giovanni in the future. If her next book is like this I will definitely check it out. ["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>(less)

It is a short story wich tells the first meeting of Ever and Damon from her bestselling the Immortals series. The Immortals books are told from Evers point of fiew and this story is told in Damons point of view. I read the first book in the Immortals series but never got to finish the second one.
First of, I just love the setting. Paris in 1608 is a place I would love to visit. I like Damons art of telling the story more than Evers. Do not get me wrong, I like Ever... a little. But Damon is in my opinion a really great and deep character. It was fun to get in his mind, even just for a few pages.
It would have been even greater if Drina hat a bigger part in the story, since she is three dimensional and an interesting character, too, though in a completely different way.
I'm thinking about picking the next book in the series up again and finally finishing it. Once more Alyson Noel left me desperate for more and I can understand again, why I loved Evermore so much.(less)

It's really hard to write this comment, just minutes after finishing the book, because I want to talk about the end so desperately it hurts! But I can't tell you the end, can I? Cassandra Clare wrote a fulminate third book to a wonderful series. If I remember right The Mortal Instruments was planned as a trilogy and this book would have been a perfect ending. But anyway I'm just really glad the series continues. The twists and turns are unbelievable! During the middle I had a feeling, like in the first book, that I already knew the deep dark secret and the protagonists Clary and Jace were just not able to see, what I saw. Despite that feeling the twists that followed just got me hooked even more. Cassandra Clare creates a wonderful world that lives through its details. The world of the shadowhunters is rich with myths, beliefs and traditions. But the little details got me even more. The fact that a raven is named after Hugin, the messanger of the norse god Odin, or that one character reads Angel Sanctuary by Kaori Yuki, in my opinion the best angel story ever written, make the characters and the world they live in become a lot realer. Cassandra Clare put a lot of work, research and thinking into this novel, which makes every chapter even better. I can only imagine how much time she spend just on finding the right quotes for the begining of every section. Quotes, that capture the moment perfectly. The characters, which I learned to love in the first two books, return to a dangerous world facing not just their enemies but their own feelings as well. Those feelings are portraited in a wonderful way and captured understandable. I, as the reader, can empathize with the characters, with the ones I love and with the ones I hate. Throughout the whole story I was desperate to find out how it ended and though I did not read the entire book in one session the story followed me everywhere. Well, I honestly don't know what else I can say except: Read the series! I recommend it for people that like romance stories and paranormal fantasy, where the world is in danger.(less)

And I could finish this review within two seconds: AWESOME! I have to say I had huge expectations about it, since there is such a huge buzz going on about the movie. Luckily it did not disappoint me. I love the world Suzanne Collins has created. It is rich on detail and I can imgaine it perfectly, though there are not too much details. I would describe her style as average, readable and very easy to follow. Perfect for a dystopian book like this. The Plot takes place in Panem, a dystopian society where North America used to be. The Protagonist Katniss finds herself in the Hunger Games, a fight to the death. Only one can win and der chances are not that good. She is a well developed and strong female character. I liked her a lot. Many different characters with different motivations and character traits perticipate in the Hunger Games and everyone was well developed and unterstandeable. I just loved the names Suzanne Collins gave everyone, especially does related to flowers. Everything fit perfectly and it showed how well worked the whole thing was Wenn I read the plot for the first time, I immediately thought of ancient rome and the gladiators. The roman names supported that picture and I loved it. I have to admitt I had High expectations for Peeta and Gale, since there was such a buzz about them and the whole the team thing started again. After the first part I thought Peeta was an asshole and Gale just a minor character, but after finishing this book I understand both a lot better and I'm sure there is a lot more coming for them. Don't ask me on which team I'm on. I don't like this whole "Team Peeta" vs. "Team Gale" thing, since I think all the fans should stand behind the novel as a whole and not bicker each other. And because I cannot decide. There are both awesome. But even the Antagonists in this book are awesome. I can emphathize with everyone and I shared the thrill with all of them. There were a few brutal scence within the book but they surely needed to be there, because of the whole setting and because it would have felt unreal without them. I'd really like to now how they're doing it in the movie so I'm heading to the theaters like right now :D I recommend the book to everyone and I'm definitely going to read the rest of the series :)(less)

Sie ist eine Dhampirin, halb Mensch halb Vampir, und wir auf der Schule St. Vladimir ausgebildet, um eines Tages eine Wächterin zu werden. In der Welt des Buches gibt es neben Dhampiren und Menschen nämlich noch zwei Arten von Vampiren: Die guten Moroi, die eine Affinität zu den Elementen haben und die untoten Strigoi.
Da Strigoi liebend gerne Moroi-Blut trinken müssen diese vor ihnen beschützt werden. Deswegen gibt es die Wächter. Rose trainiert hart, damit sie eines Tages als Wächterin ihrer besten Freundin Lissa zugeteilt wird. Lissa ist das letzte lebende Mitglied einer einst angesehenen Moroi Königsfamilie.
Rose zur Seite steht ihr Ausbilder Dimitri, der auf Rose eine ganz besondere Anziehung ausübt. Doch die Mauern von St. Vladimir sind nicht so sicher, wie alle denken und auch in den eigenen Reihen gibt es manche, die nur ihre eigenen Interessen verfolgen...
3 Gründe für Vampire Academy:
1. Es sticht in der heutigen Flut von Vampirbüchern positiv heraus.
2. Man kann mit den Charakteren sehr gut mitfühlen und es wird nie langweilig.
3. Die Autorin Richelle Mead hat einen erfrischenden Schreibstil der den Leser schon von der ersten Seite an gefangen hält und nicht mehr .loslässt.
Manche sagen, VA würde wie viele andere Bücher auf der Welle des Vampirhypes mitschwimmen und es ist wirklich schwer, bei dem großen Angebot die wirklich guten herauszupicken, doch Vampire Academy steht ganz oben auf der Liste.(less)

Please beware that the following review is full with words like "wonderful", "great", "love",... Isn't it funny that I cannot find the words to express how much I enjoyed a book where words were so important for the story?
Let's start with my favourite quote:
Is falling in love with someone's story the same thing as falling in love with the person himself?
What I liked the most: The society. Yes, you read that right. I liked the dystopian society the most. The society is everything I never want to happen. You are not allowed to think for yourselves, make your own choices or create something new. The society, every part of it, and most of all the people in it were was well and completey thought through. The feelings Cassia had for the society, her doubts, and her hopes were understandable and I felt for her and with her through the entire book. She went through a great character development and I cannot wait to see were her ways will lead her in the next installment.
But my favourite character would be Ky. In a world that was so bad to him, where no one knew his true story he was still able to keep faith and stay who he truly was.
My favourite scene was definitely the one where Cassia read the poem for the first time. It showed how much power and energy words can have, one of the many reasons I love poems. The scene was beautifully writtten and like a poem itself, really poetic.
Ally Condie has a lovely writting style and I really liked the pictures she created and how she interwined the past of her characters with the present.
The book really got me thinking about a lot of thinks. Not many YA books were able to do that lately. I thought about how important choices are for us. In the society they seem to live a great and healthy life, but aren't the bad experiences we make, all the heart break, and all the pain important for who we are and who we are going to be, too? Aren't they an important part of life, too?
Fun fact: A fun fact about Matched would, for me, be the colors of the three books. There are free important tablets in the society that everyone need to cary around with them. A green one, a blue one, and a red one. And the book covers are green, red, and blue. So while I wait here until I can get my hands on book two, I try to make predicitions on the future of Cassia based on what the tablets do to you. :D
Philosophic, romantic, and poetic, a wonderful dystopian novel.(less)

We all know that the battle between good and evil ended on the fields of Camlan, where King Arthur Pendragon was wounded by his son Mordred. We know that both are waiting to meet again and make clear once and for all who wins this century old battle. But what happened after that? What happened after the isle of Avalon disappeared in the mists, what happened after Lancelot betrayed his king and friend? The Author Kinley MacGregor answers this question in a wonderful writing stile. She takes us into a world where the old battles are still fought and time travelling is normal. She is able to entwine old elements of medieval stories with modern pieces. In this story the bad guy is easy to spot but not easy to judge. The twists are unforeseeable and the atmosphere as well as the story telling is good. You can see that Kinley MacGregor knows what she is doing. A recommendation for fans of Arthurian legends with modern twists. For fans of stories about love and friendship and for people who like reading about the old battle of good and evil. Definitely not the best book in this genre but a good read after all. (less)

1. Die Spannung, man ertappt sich beim Lesen selber dabei, sich umzusehen und sich zu vergewissern, dass man auch wirklich allein ist.
2. Die Atmosphäre. Es gelingt der Autorin wunderbar Bilder heraufzubeschwören. Vollkommen egal, ob sie einen in die dunklen Gassen des nächtlichen Londons 1886 entführt, in die menschenleeren Moore oder die gruselige Irrenanstalt.
3. Das Ende. Denn so erwartet es bestimmt niemand. Es ist überraschend, aber es passt trotzdem zum Rest der Geschichte, ohne jetzt zu sehr aus der Luft gegriffen zuwirken.(less)

I rarely enjoyed another book as much as I enjoyed this one. It made me happy and sad equally. Following Lucys' struggle for happiness and her interesting relationships was a fantastic adventure and really delightful. Paige Toon is able to bring her character to life, something I apreciate most about an author.
