"Again, panic seized my chest. Noah had never given me any reason to distrust him, but that night, something wicked picked at the threads of my heart,"Again, panic seized my chest. Noah had never given me any reason to distrust him, but that night, something wicked picked at the threads of my heart, threatening to yank the string. You know, the one that never stops unraveling."
"I was Cinderella and we had just left the Ball. Of course, we had a detour that got us even more drunk, but soon we were in the castle and my Prince Charming was going to make mad, passionate love to me."
"Just ten minutes earlier, we were breathless and panting like animals. He was considerably bigger than me. His body was firm and tough. He wasn't an athlete, but he trained like one. I loved feeling his weight on me as he loved me inside and out."
Inside and out? I mean.. SERIOUSLY!? That is just a creepy and disgusting way to describe something.
"He knew my panic because he felt it, too. His virgin girlfriend of two years would be working alone with a womanizing drunk until all hours of the morning. I knew it would be something Joel wouldn't take lightly."
How.. What.. I.. How is it relevant to your job if you are a virgin or if you sleep around a lot? Unless you're a prostitute, but I'm pretty sure this virgin isn't working in a brothel. What the **** is going on here?! Why is this book so bad!?
"I turned slowly, bracing myself for the sight of a guy that could be cast in a creepy indie film - greasy black hair, stubble, skanky teeth, rancid smell. ... I was stunned. This couldn't be "Noah". He didn't have a greasy black hair, stubble, skanky teeth or a rancid smell. He smelled.. delicious."
We already knew this Noah guy likes to party and sleep with a lot of women. So why the hell would you think of a guy with "greasy black hair, stubble, skanky teeth and rancid smell"!? Apparently that's her dream guy, but usually you would expect a womanizer to be slightly better looking, or at least aware of his hygiene.
"I gasped when I heard the door lock behind him and realized I was now alone with Noah. Of course, that gasp caused me to choke on my own spit. It wasn't an easy-to-clear kind of choke. It was an all-out I-can't-breathe-someone-call-911 kind of choke. I was pretty sure I was going to die. Well, at least then I wouldn't be awake to see what a womanizing ass does to the town's virgin by the light of a full moon."
WHY WOULD HE DO ANYTHING!? Please, end her suffering.
"He nodded with a grin stuck at one corner of his mouth. That's when I realized all the inner vibrations weren't Noah's fault. It was my body's reaction to him. I smiled, turned quickly, and walked toward the mess waiting for me by the sink. The sooner I got the dishes done, the sooner I could escape this unsettled feeling I had. Initially, I thought all the humming through my body was a reaction to the fear of almost choking to death. But I don't remember fear being so positively exhilarating. When my little sister jumped out from behind the coat rack, I didn't feel positive or exhilarated. I felt like I could mortally wound her."
Please, end my suffering, I am so done.
This is just.. someone was daydreaming and thought it would make a great book. No, it didn't make a great book. Please, just stick with the daydreaming....more

May contain some spoilers This book was described as "a contemporary fairy tale", so of course I couldn't wait to dive in. I'm a sucker for that kind of stories, and the gorgeous cover definitely didn't hurt! Seriously, just love it.
And the beginning was quite promising. Nissa decides she wants to be a fairy godmother and her first assignment is a teenage girl named Vicky. Then it got pretty bad. By bad I mean the story didn't have a soul. Weird thing to say, but it was just empty. I couldn't connect with the story or with the characters. I'm really having hard time to describe the problem here. It's like someone just tells you "main character named X meets a dude and they look each other. Now they are like feeling the connection and all. They like really fall for each other." Yeah, you can keep telling me that, but that just isn't good enough. That pretty much describes the love story here. First Nissa meets Levi, drools over him a little, then they're suddenly sleeping together, then they're.. I don't even know what they are. There's absolutely no chemistry between these two characters so how am I suppose to believe they are falling for each other? I have no idea.
There was just this overall emptiness that bothered me so much. I really wanted to give only one cupcake, but I absolutely loved the idea behind this book and the cover, so I had to give two cupcakes.

May contain some spoilers Bitter Greens ended up being a captivating story mixing both fiction and fantasy! This was both a fairytale retelling of Rapunzel and historical fiction revolving around Charlotte-Rose de la Force's scandalous life. Charlotte-Rose de la Force actually was a French novelist and poet. She was also the one telling the tale of Rapunzel for the first time. This definitely peaked my interested and added something extra for the story!
About half the book is about Charlotte-Rose de la Force and her life. Thanks to some scandals, king forces her to move to a convent, where life isn't fun and games. Especially in the beginning her life is miserable. We also get to see glimpses of her earlier life, which was filled with dancing, flirting, scandals, you name it. And I must say I definitely enjoyed those stories more. Then there's the story of Rapunzel, which locates to Italy in the 16th century. This is the part containing most of the fantasy, yet I still ended up loving Charlotte-Rose's story more. Somehow it just seemed more relatable and the story just flowed. I could've read a book solely concentrating on Charlotte-Rose!
Through the book there's a lot of jumping back and forth in time, which many times confuses me. I don't usually get easily confused, but I never seem to remember which year we're in, so I always have to browse through earlier chapters. And when you add different stories and characters to that.. Oh my, I should've been completely lost! Yet, the author managed the jumps brilliantly, even my chicken brain managed to stay focused!
This was kind of a risk for me to read, since I usually stick to young adult literature if possible. And tend to avoid any historical- something. So when I actually ended up enjoying this book, I was so happy! Because it's always a pleasure to find a great read, and it's somehow even more amazing when it's out of your comfort zone. You don't like historical fiction? You should try this out! Love historical fiction? Again, you should definitely try this out.
My thanks to The Book Depository for providing the review copy!

May contain some spoilers Our main character is Hannah, who is on her way to Arizona, where she's suppose to meet her brother, Ben. Before she gets there, she runs into a hot stranger while fueling up. She's blushing like an idiot, but manages to somewhat get over it, until she realizes The Hottie is Josh, his brother's best friend. He's the guy who used to call her "big sister". And he still is only 17! Hannah tries her best to get over his hotness, but doesn't really manage that so well. Especially when she sometimes feels like he might feel the same way about her. And that isn't her only problem; she's started seeing some weird dreams, where Josh is with her. And after first running into three drunken guys, he keeps seeing groups of three men everywhere. Sometimes not even men, but coyotes. You'd be freaking out, too!
Main thing left in my mind about the book was a huge admiration towards the author. Because times and times again I was just astonished her knowledge of Native American culture! She's really done her homework and a whole lot of more on top of that! She knew everything about customs and culture and language and it just kept surprising me over and over again. That's definitely a positive thing. But it also made me wish I was more into Native American culture. Or to any other culture. In school, any class about different cultures or even about history and I was fast asleep. Like in ten seconds! I have no idea how that's even possible, but it's a true story, I swear. So, there was a whole lot of information in this book. Yet I didn't fall asleep, but I did get distracted occasionally. There was just so much details about a subject I'm not that interested about, so I had to take a lot of breaks. But still, I always came back!
The story was pretty slow paced, probably because of the huge amount of details. That also kept distracting me, and I had to really focus and remind myself that this is a love story and the main focus should be on Hannah and Josh. In the end, they are a great couple, but Josh was definitely my favorite! Hannah was suppose to be an adult, yet she acts like she's fifteen with all the blushing etc. And the age difference bothered me. And I kept reminding myself that my husband is six years older than me, but then I remember I was 20 when we started going out. Everything was legal. Yes yes, I'm definitely old.
In the end, I didn't really get along with the characters, but still, the main thing on my mind about this book is how talented and passionate the author is. I'm not a fan of Native American culture, and probably never will be, but I hope someone who is will read this. Because this will probably become his/her favorite book, thanks to amazing details and a great love story!
My thanks to the author for providing a copy for review!
May contain some spoilers Probably the best day of this year so far was when I received ARC of Unravel Me! Of course I wanted to read it right away, and was glued to the book until the last page and I had to throw the book to the wall because it ended and needed to be punished for that. Okay, I know I should probably hug awesome books, but.. it's always so sad when a great book ends!
Back to the business! Remember how Shatter Me ended? Juliette and Adam finally got to safehaven underground and finally everything's gonna be alright! Juliette seems even happy! But nono, that can't go on. Juliette doesn't fit in, since nowadays everyone knows her secrets and about her abilities. So even though she's among "her people", they're acting like "normal" people and think Juliette's too dangerous, surprise. So there's only Adam for Juliette, but there's these insane rules about girls and boys living apart and then things get complicated and everything isn't so happyhappyjoyjoy. And eventually Warner shows up again!
Juliette is moody, wallowing, just throwing the pity party, and I'm loving it! She's throwing some crazy temper tantrums, too, and man.. Is there something wrong with me, because I think her temper tantrums are just awesome and would love to see them more? Probably.
The situation with Adam and Warner is also kinda crazy. In the first book it was pretty obvious who Juliette was going to end up with, but now.. I'm so confused!! I am just so in love with the psycho-Warner, and just want to see him happy! And I want to kick Juliette's butt for not choosing Warner right this second! And no, I don't think they should be together so Juliette could change him, but they should be together because Warner isn't trying to change Juliette. Like in Bridget Jones, he likes her just the way she is. Yup, been thinking about this!
I haven't read Destroy Me yet *gasp*, so Warner's father was a completely new character to me. Definitely not a fan, and if you happened to notice my GR update I made while reading this, you know I was very, very happy when he got shot. To both legs. I'm not sadistic or anything, but some people just deserve it. Warner's father also brings a little twist to the story, and when it was revealed, I was all "Of course!, why didn't I see that coming, that was like so obvious!", but still was a great twist.
What I didn't like? There wasn't much really. At some point I just got the feeling Juliette should do something else than just mope, but then again I sometimes wished she would mope even more, so what do I know! I just wish things worked out better for Warner, and I don't always appreciate how Juliette treats him. Warner rocks, so.. please don't hurt him! And sorry, I know this is going to be long, but.. I can't help myself!!
There was so many sweet moments with this book, but the absolute heaven for me was pages 392-405. I would love to quote all those pages, but I guess I should stick with something smaller. At least I try to keep it small.. ish.
Did you already notice there isn't any names mentioned? If you're curious, and just dying to know who is "he", click the next image. It's a spoiler, so.. Be careful! This also was a scene that made me hate Juliette for a while.
I so want to spoil this whole thing, but aaargh!, I can't! There was so many great mind blowing scenes, and I just want to spoil it all. Oh the agony.

May contain some spoilers The first thing I noticed was the beautiful and colorful cover. It made me think this would be cute story suitable for younger audience, of course I wanted to read this right away! So I was pretty surprised when I started reading this and was actually scared. I mean can't-read-this-when-there's-dark-outside- scared. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
Bartholomew is a changeling who lives his life by one rule: Don't get yourself noticed and you won't get yourself hanged. Because he's a changeling (half fairy, half human), and neither humen nor fairies accept them. So nobody really cares when someone starts killing changelings. Until Bartoholomew's little sister, Hettie, is taken. Bartholomew starts an eventful journey with a politician, Mr. Jelliby, to save his sister. Yet it may be too late.
First I have to mention the absolutely fantastic narrator. Like I've mentioned earlier, some books just have the ability to come alive in your head. While reading this, I couldn't help but hear the narrator's voice in my head. Something like Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. Some people probably won't like that, but I happen to love that style. I also loved Mr. Jelliby. He's a politician, which made me little iffy at first, but he has the ability to get himself in such a trouble you can't help but like him. And sometimes feel a little sorry. He definitely isn't your typical hero, which only makes him more likable. Though I'm surprised he isn't the middle-aged politician I pictured him being.
I'm usually the fan of girly books, and this definitely isn't one. I expected this to be full of action, and I was right, but all the scary parts really surprised me. Okay, I may be the only one who found this scary. But.. Think Professor Quirinus Quirrell and oh-look-you-have-extra-face and scarecrow coming to your room at night and singing you lullaby.. Make's me so scared I'm actually nauseous.
So, if you don't get scared easily, you definitely should check this out. Stefan Bachmann manages to create a whole new world where the natural meets the supernatural with fairies and magic. This isn't pretty story, but that is what makes this stand out even more.

May contain some spoilers Okay, let's get something clear. Before I read this, I heard this was going to be the last book in the series. But after finishing this, I was convinced I remembered wrong, and this isn't the last book. Then, I read someone else's review saying this is the last book! Is this, or is this not, the last book!? Because if this is, I need to wipe this whole review and give just one cupcake and be all WTH!? Okay, I'll just google this, just a sec..
Few google searches and a day later.. Yeah, still have no idea if this was really the final book. But let's presume not, since it definitely didn't feel like it.
It's been a while since Violet got attacked and got the imprint of her own. Things have settled, yet her life definitely isn't what it used to be; she's avoiding her friends, avoiding the group (and Rafe), having trouble with sleeping, you name it. And like in every book, Violet (stupidly) wonders to places she's not suppose to and finds a bunch of bodies. After this Violet gets to know her talent better, learns interesting things of the past and finally opens up to at least one of her friends. Prepare yourself!
Violet is pretty much her old self, just a little sleep deprived. Unfortunately she hasn't really learn impulse control, so she just runs off, hunting dead bodies! Never liked that quality in her, since she always gets into trouble that way! But other than that, I do like her. Actually a little more now, since she did evolve a little; she realized she actually has friends worth trusting, and opens up a little. I always wondered how she can truly be a real friend if she has to hide such a huge part of herself, but now she has another true friend. Yet, that's when things get complicated.. Another thing Violet notices: it bothers her when Rafe gets close to another girl. Like, really bothers her. Someone might say she's screwed, I say YAY! *happydance* But that's the main reason why it's so hard to believe this would be the last book; there's been a whole lot of hinting towards love triangle, and now something may actually happen, so this can't be it! Violet's realization was the huge cliffhanger for me and definitely makes me crave for the next book! And yeah, I'm definitely Team Rafe, especially when he does something Jay never thought of. Don't want to spoil it, let's just say it's extremely creepy yet so romantic, you just have to love that kind of guy!

"..And since Rose is older in the next book, I suspect I won't be having that much trouble with the age issue then!"
So that's how I ended the first books review. How stupid of me, that was clearly a jinx. But more on that later, because the main thing is.. This definitely ends up being one of my this years favorite books, and is just as brilliant as the first one!
Things are pretty much the same with Rose, meaning everything is f'ed up and she's kind of angry. Not as angry as before, but somewhat. So she spends a lot of time in therapy with her mother, because why wouldn't that be fun? Her brother is just as absent as before and has some pretty dark secrets. Her best friends seem to have their own things and then there's Jamie Forta, who is even more of a mystery than before! I would be annoyed, too.
Rose manages to surprise my yet again. Even though she's angry and feels betrayed by everyone, she manages to make the best of it. Just like that she finds her true calling and starts to grow up (fast)! She doesn't let anyone else define her, but starts to trust herself and her good heart and.. she just amazes me, again. She's an inspiring main character and I just can't get enough of her! But this time, I wasn't really impressed with Jamie Forta. Or with any other character, really. They made me feel annoyed and basically the same feelings as Rose. And the feminist inside me was all hooray! when Rose finally realized Jamie Forta isn't the answer! Yay! (But why do I keep writing "Jamie Forta"? Can't I just use one name?! Guess he's just one of those guys..)
Then there's the one, and only, but. This is the reason why there's half a cupcake missing, and is the same reason I didn't completely fell in love with the first book. The age thing. I know, Rose is older and wiser, but, again, it's just too much. She's supposed to be 15. How many of you found their true calling at the age of fifteen? How many of you weren't an awkward blob most of the time? And here I'm waving my hand, because I remember what it was like to be fifteen. I was the most awkward girl on my class and just tried to fit in, and so did pretty much everyone else. We were just ridiculous and thinking back to those days just makes me want to cry most of the time. We were childish and so extremely ridiculous and yes, now I'm definitely crying. It was just.. horrible. Nothing like Rose's life, which really makes me envy her.
Huge thanks for the review copy, this was definitely a pleasure!
First I have to introduce Mind Games' UK cover, though I'm sure this is no news to anyone.
I really can't say which cover and title I like more, cause they're just so different and both suitable on their own way.
I didn't really know what to expect from this book when I first heard about it, except of course some sort of epic awesomeness, thanks to author. We have two narratives, Fia and Annie. They're sisters, but that's probably all they have in common. Annie is blind, but sometimes she has visions. But due to her blindness she's also pretty helpless and that makes her an easy prey. And that's the best way to control Fia; threaten Annie. Since Fia has the flawless instincts, she makes a great assassin (hint, the UK name!).
I wasn't a huge fan of Annie. She's blind, but sometimes I got the feeling she really is using her sister. Fia wouldn't have gone to that school if it wasn't for Annie. Fia wouldn't be used, if it wasn't for Annie. And it takes Annie years to realise this. I just feel she uses her sister sometimes too. But Fia.. I have a total girl crush! And I haven't have one of those in a long time. She's absolutely kickass yet.. she's in her breaking point. She just wants out, but there really isn't way. Until she comes up with a hopefully awesome plan. There's also some romantic action; the whole story starts when Fia doesn't kill Adam, and she hopes there could be something there, but there probably won't be. And then there's James, who is presented as a villain, but Fia actually really cares about him, even when she knows she shouldn't. And in the end, we might have been wrong about him all along.
Why I chose this to be the first review of this year is because this was one of my most anticipated books coming out in 2013, and I was so happy when I got to read this in 2012! I absolutely loved Kiersten's Paranormal series (and absolutely adored Evie), and couldn't wait to read more from her. But I must say I was completely taken by surprise when I realised how different Mind Games was from Paranormalcy! Paranormalcy was mostly just absolutely hilarious, so of course I was expecting more of that. But Mind Games.. it's nothing like Paranormalcy. It's dark and sad and even awful sometimes, yet it's amazing. Kiersten has her unique style of writing which captures you from the first page and keeps you glued to the book until you're finished. And then lefts you wishing you already had the second book. And the cliffhanger really doesn't help with that.

May contain some spoilers I was so happy, when I got the chance to read this early! Especially since there was that huge cliffhanger in the first book. Surely you remember the cliffhanger, where Jack took Nikki's place and ended up in The Tunnels? The dark, unpleasant place, you remember that? Well, Jack is still there, and the main goal is to get Jack out of the tunnels. So Nikki and Cole decide to team up! And boy, what a team they make. I mean actual lip contact once in a while. I was just jumping up and down cause I was so happy!! I actually thought they would already forget about Jack and leave him rot in The Tunnels, but NAH!!11 And "NAH" because even though everything was awesome in the beginning of the story and even during, things ended up pretty.. bad.
And what do I mean by "bad"? I mean TOTAL BETRAYAL!!!! And I mean betrayal by the author. Because I can't blame Cole for anything that went on. Because two things happened: 1) Author had to break up the triangle, and what's the easiest way? The other guy does something stupid/evil/both. BUT WHY COLE!? and 2) many times second book ends up being just a "filler", and in the end I got the feeling this was just a little detour before the actual goal. Detour that ruined Cole!!11
Okay, I may be a little upset because of the situation Cole, but I try to think positive. Maybe that whole thing is a scam. Yes, in my heart I have to believe that so I won't loose my positive POV. And I just have to mention this: the cover is breath taking, absolutely corgeus, absolutely love it!
To sum it up: Again, great read, but just can't beat the first book.

May contain some spoilers Fairy tale brought to modern world, how much do I love that! (In case you wonder, very much! I just watched A Cinderella story, Another Cinderella story and A Cinderella Story: Once upon a song)
This really isn't an ordinary Cinderella story. Cinderella is a werewolf. After a little accident, Prince is a vampire. Cinderella's cousins are the "two evil stepsisters", but it's a refreshing change to see that they're not that evil (though kind of mean and inconsiderate in occasions). And the "evil stepmother" isn't evil, either.
The story begins with Cinderella and Prince just hanging out. They don't use their real names, but that doesn't stop them from liking each other. Then Cinderella turns into werewolf for the first time, and that's when their paths separate.
Until years later, when it's time for the ball.
I just loved this story! There's romance, humor and happily ever afters, which I can't resist. I just have to quote few LOL- moments!
Well, I could put her in a container -- parts of her anyway.
But that would be gross.
I scrunched up my face. "Let's just say I hope you like guys who howl at the moon." "No, I don't", she hissed.
"Oh, c'mon. Could you really date a guy who gets that hairy? I bet they shed too, which means I could never wear black. Either that or I'd go broke buying lint removers."
Everything was fluent, and even though you expect to know how the story goes, there's few surprises. This reminded me of my favorites, Hex Hall and Paranormalcy. Just like them, I couldn't stop reading until I was finished. Which was too soon, since this was a novella. I just wanted to keep on reading, so another 155 pages would've been nice! So that's a small minus. There's no more down sides, though Cinderella might have been a little too whiny occasionally. But maybe it's understandable, since she attacked a boy she loves and doesn't trust herself.
As said, I could have read another 155 pages, and would love to see more of Cinderella and Prince.

May contain some spoilers Calliope is kind of a loner and she likes to write stories. She's kind of geeky, and it certainly doesn't help that she'll need glasses. That's when her sort of fairy godmother steps in, and that's when Callie receives her magical glasses. And they're magical because they let her see people's hidden thoughts. And she realizes that nothing's like she thought it was.
I really don't want to spoil too much, because this is such a wonderful story to read! Basically she learns that nothing's what it seems and everyone has hidden secrets, even the friends you think you know the best. Or your parents. And the one you think is the bad guy, isn't always. The motives behind people's actions might not be what you think they are. And, the most important thing I should've known when I was growing up: What ever you think about yourself, it may not be what the others thinks.
I have to say that I absolutely adore the picture of Jenny the 7th grader (can be found on her homepage)! It's about excactly the same as mine! I'm few years younger than Jenny, so in my 7th grade picture I'm not wearing polo shirt, but a flanel shirt. Orange. And brown. And my glasses were a little smaller, since it was year.. umm.. seriously, I can't remember and I'm too lazy to count. But anyway. I was the girl with the frizzy hair (I do have frizzy hair still, but now I know how to use straightening iron...). I was also 10 cm's (4 inches) taller than any other boy or girl in my class. So yeah, I feel the pain.
I also had louzy best friend, who made me and this other girl compete for her attention, until she found a boyfriend, and me and the other girl became friends. So it was kind of painful to read this book, but painful only because it reminds us, the girls with frizzy hair, what it was like to be that age. Especially when you didn't have magical glasses! Just ordinary ones. And nearly braces *shudder* It's nice to see how someone excactly like you, or me, survives it.
This is the book for all those frizzy haired girls who survived, or will survive, their lives even without the magical glasses!

May contain some spoilers If I would summarize this book in one word, it would be exciting. Just wonderful read. At first, I was little iffy, since I count so much on the beauty of the cover, but yet again, I was proven wrong. Like most of the time.
The female lead is girl named Jennet. She and her father move to a new city. She's a gamer, and in a lot of trouble after playing Feyland. A game, where fantasy becomes reality. If you get hurt there, you will be hurt in the real life. So it kinda sucks, when piece of her soul is taken.. So she needs a knight to save her. That is when Tam enters. He's poor, from the bad neighborhood, with a hyper little brother and mum, who disappears occasionally. But he's the best gamer Jennet can find.
After that, their inseparable. And that of course leads to romance. Yay! I love their relationship. That's all I have to say about that.
Even though I usually have a huge problem with the whole damsel in distress-thing, not this time. Since there actually was a real reason for Jennet to be weak. She still wasn't phlegmatic and whiny, so she didn't bug me. And my feminist side kept quiet nearly the whole time! It has to be some kind of record.
I had some favorite scenes. Of course I loved to see how Tam's and Jennet's romance progressed, how they noticed each other romantically, little bit at a time.
And how the Wild Hunt came to real world! If you wondered what my latest Teaser Tuesday was about, it was the Wild Hunt. Creepy! And freaking awesome!
I especially loved the last few pages. They were full of action, romance, heartbreak, so what's not to love! I especially loved the surprising twist, meaning "The Ballad of Tam Lin". I really didn't see that coming, and I love when something like this happens. And I love it even more if author adds something from real life, in this case it was the ballad. You can check the ballad here.
Okay, I think that it's pretty obvious how much I liked this book? So enough with rambling.
