Summary : Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She' s quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn't get out much. Not because she's not pretty. She is. Its just that, well, Sookie has this sort of "disability". She can read minds. And that doesn't make her too dateable. And then along comes Bill. He's tall, dark, handsome --- and Sookie can't hear a word he's thinking. He's exactly the type of guy skids been waiting for all her life ...
But Bill has a disability of his own: He is a vampire with a bad reputation. He hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, all suspected of --- big surprise --- murder. And when one of Sookie's coworkers is killed, she fears she's next ...
My Opinion : Well, it's official, I have found a new vampire series to read! After having read the Twilight Saga and the Vampire Academy series, I didn't think I'd find another series that I'd enjoy as much. But I did!
Charlaine Harris' writing was fast-paced, funny, sometimes dark, and a peace of art. I enjoyed the quickened pace and the sometimes dramatic scenes between Bill and Sookie.
Bill was a great character. He didn't have much of a personality, but I still liked him. Sookie was the one with the funny and nice personality that a great series needs.
I recommend this funny as well as dark vampire series, which was also adapted into a TV series called True Blood.
I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book in the series, (less)

My Opinion : Warning : I read this book in half a day, and my emotions were fully blown. Maybe reading it in a day would be better for everyone.
This book was different from what I normally read. I love Young Adult Paranormal Romance, and this was more about Young Adult Non-Fiction. But I still enjoyed it.
I haven't read much books that are about dealing with death without anything Paranormal, so this was a bit weird for me at first. The writing was fast-paced, but still kept a grip on small details that made the story whole.
*uses sarcasm* D'Arcy (Yeah, I know, weird way of writing a name) was simply charming! Nah, just kidding. She had a weird, but understandable, way of dealing with her father's death. But when Seth appeared, she began feeling better, and that's why I'm so grateful to Seth.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes Non-Fiction. Even Fiction fans could read this.(less)

My Opinion : I am not a big fan of werewolves book; only the great book called Nightshade, but this book was really good. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I liked Hawthrone's writing a lot; the way she had me wrapped me in her little fingers just after the ten first pages.
Also, I liked Kayla's point of view. She has quite a funny way to think and to express herself.
I was impressed by the way the story was written. I like stores fast paced but with a lot of details; and my wishes came true.

My Opinion : Having read two other Dessen books, I knew that this author wrote about teen problems. So I knew which kind of book I was going to read.
Sarah Dessen's writing is as always, nice, but really hard on the emotions. Dessen approaches the subject of a boyfriend beating up his girlfriend, which is a touchy subject, but Dessen doesn't scare the reader off.
*Sniff sniff* Poor Caitlin. Her life went from pretty normal to disastrous. All because, on her sixteenth birthday, her older sister decided to run off with her boyfriend. Then, Caitlin met Rogerson. And there goes her normal life. I absolutely hate Rogerson!
After this book, Dessen got me wanting more of her writing, and so Along for the Ride will be the next novel of hers I will be reading.(less)
My (High!) Opinion : It's been about a month since I've read this book, and I actually thought I'd done a review on it, but when I looked around my blog, I saw I hadn't (stupid me!). I think I actually did a review in my mind, so I just have to put it on here.
I was preparing to buy this book, but when I check it at my library, and I was so happy, because any money I havem I buy books with it :D
I thought Vanish was better than Firelight, even though I was angry at Jacinda for sometimes kissing Cassian. i mean, um, hello?!?What about the charming, awesome, handsome Will! And poor Tamra, who didn't get Cassian :(
I was happy that they didn't cut her wings, but at the same time I think it would have added some drama, don't you think???
I was so happy when Will 'came back' in the book. I love him so much!
The writing was really good. It was fast-paced and fun, also a little romantic.
And don't you just love the cover! It's soooooo beautiful!!!! I thoguht it was even mroe beautiful than the first one.

Series: Hush Hush #1 Author: Becca Fitzpatrick Format: Hardcover Page Count: 438 Source: Library My (High!) Opinion : So this is the hugely awaited third novel in the Hush, Hush series. I was so happy when I saw this had arrived at my library. and that I could get it for free! I did a happy dance once I got it, actually :D
The story baseline was pretty good. It started with Nora, who had lost any memory form the last five months of her life. All because of the ?/$"%?%$"?/W!/!"&/??/("/) Hank Millar. He's EVIL! She was in a cemetery, and was completely lost. Poor her... anyway, she went home and was safe and sound. Then, she feels like she's missing something...
She then encounters Jev (Patch) and feels attracted to him. Of course, who wouldn't :D
I felt like the writing was better than the first two books in the series; Becca definitely has improved a lot, and the writing was sensational! And awesome!
I was blown away by what happened near the end (don't worry, I won't spoil anything) and I can't wait to see what happens next. Let'S hope it gets even better! (less)
