It was one of the first high fantasy books I could get through. Usually I get lost with high fantasy because I simply am too adhd to handle the copious amounts of detail in world building. While this book has tons of that as well, I was so enthralled and attached to the characters that no amount of words could have satiated my desire for this beautiful world that Patrick Rothfuss has created. This is the book that ruined reading for me. This is the book that I measure every other book to and because of that, I've become far less keen to read new things. I read this book for the 7th time this week and I love it just as much as the first time i laid eyes on it. This book makes me cry, it makes my heart beat so fast that fingers tremble while turning the pages. This is the most beautiful book I've ever read. Thank you Patrick. ...more

It broke my heart to see Eden's heart torn by the english hottie and though I have grown to love Jericho, the loss of what was the perfect prince charming, accent and all, was slightly disarming.
Rachel definately didn't disappoint with her second installment of Star-crossed I'm buzzing with anticipation and excitment for the next book.. Hopeless Magic was a vivid and captivating read ...more
I'm the type of person that doesn't touch a book with out a synopsis, and reading Half-blood's I was very impressed, but I decided it was worth a try.I'm the type of person that doesn't touch a book with out a synopsis, and reading Half-blood's I was very impressed, but I decided it was worth a try....Ican't tell you how much I LOVED this book!!
The basic plot of the book is that the main charcter Alex returns to the convenant after an attack by daimions. she has to catch up on her studies b/c she and her mother ran away from the convenant three years ago. In the begining of the book her mom is already dead. that's all i'm going to say about the plot, but there is quite a bit of for shadowing in this book XD...it was predictable, but still good.
The main thing that made this book AWESOME were the characters. I adored Alex, everytime she spoke I found my self smiling. She's very sarcastic and badass, which makes her extremely hilarious. I found her conversations with Adien very amusing :D. I can't say how much I appreciate that the author doesn't make her like a Bella charcter, she has a love interest, Adien, but it isn't the only thing that she thinks about -__- I absoluting loathe books where the main charcter is willing to gie away her life for stupid love.....
the book had avery good sturdy plot, but sometims I thought that the author needed alittle more background information. Jennifer Armentrout definitaly has a very personalized style of writing, she nver fails that interest you...All in all Half-Blood was an unforgetable book. I finish in one sitting, and it left me wanting more. ...more
