Hmmm. It's weird. I'm trying to fall in love with this book, but I can't.

Evie's voice reminds me of Hex Hall's Sophie a little. They both have this jocular, slightly sarcastic quality to their narration.

I almost ordered this from the Amazon bargain bin, but Amazon decided to charge me from shipping so I've decided to stop buying from them. >.>

Maybe it was destiny~


Rayne Haha. Maybe. Idk, the book wasn't awful, but it is way overrated and overhyped. It's enjoyable to some point, then Evie (protagonist) got too silly for my taste, but the plot is interesting enough. Maybe I'll check the other one, but I'm in no hurry.
Don't know if you'll like it, though. Evie's resemblance to Sophie ended when, unlike Sophie, she couldn't own up to what was happening and decided going to prom was more important than dealing with a terrible prophecy that involved her and someone else destroying paranormals.

Um WTF. Did she seriously do that? I think that would make me angry. :/ So she's not as awesome as Sophie? :(

Btw, I decided to order from BN.com and their bargain bin is more badass than Amazon's. Like I bought a couple of YA books for $1.99 each. XD Oh and they have free shipping for PR. :)

Ordered these for $1.99:
Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side (Jessica, #1) by Beth Fantaskey Geek Charming by Robin Palmer Cindy Ella by Robin Palmer

Geek Charming is getting a Disney movie. If it isn't obvious, I was going for cutesy/lighthearted books. XD I know you said Jessica's Guide is pretty bleh, but it was only $2. Hahaha If I hate it, it won't hurt that much.

Ordered these for $3.58:
Wake (Dream Catcher, #1) by Lisa McMann Bad Girls Don't Die (Bad Girls Don't Die, #1) by Katie Alender Wings (Wings, #1) by Aprilynne Pike Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely, #1) by Melissa Marr

Wake is getting a movie too, but with Miley Cyrus (ugh).

Decided to get Wicked Lovely and give it a try too. Btw, have you read Wings? I've heard mixed things about it. :S


Rayne Yup. She did that. She decided to ignore everything, go in complete denial and pretend it didn't concern her even if it was obviously about her and people she knew was dying just because she rather spend her time with a guy that she already desperately loved by the end of the book...*sigh* Nope. I feel like I owe Sophie an apology for that comparison. This one took the silliness too far to the point of being obnoxious. She named her taser "Tasey" (all the time, not as a joke) and was obsessed with the color pink. Sorry, Sophie.

My last order was at BN.com (since my beloved Borders pro membership is not even worth the dirt on my sneakers now), but not from the bargain bin, though. I definitely need to pay more attention to that. But it has a limit, right? The free shipping? Unless you become a member, you have to buy $25 in merchandise from BN to get the free shipping.

I think you mixed me up with someone else XD I haven't read Jessica's guide. I eyed it for some time, but then decided against it on the account that it sounded silly and I really needed some time away from vampires considering just how awful everything vampire has been lately. But let me know how that goes haha Yeah, I'm not too far from giving cutesy a try, even if it goes against everything I believe in, but thats a moot point because y/a paranormal is recently in itself cutesy.

Uhhh I've been eying wake for a while. Excuse me while I go buy it for that price. The only one I hadn't heard of was that second one. Well, I already told you what I think of wicked lovely. Not bad, okay-ish. And wings. I know people really like it but I've been running away from that one like its got something contagious. Sounds to pink and pretty for me. Idk, let me know.

Weird. I had heard it was in the movie adaptation of Wings that Miley Cyrus would appear.


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

Ok, I LOVE pink so I can't criticize that. XD But she sounds very annoying. I mean, Sophie is so spunky and I don't know-- just all around awesome. This girl doesn't sound like that right now.

$25 just like Amazon. I always buy that. lol My thoughts are that I'd rather spend $25 all in books than say $15+ at least $5 of shipping. Those $5 can go towards another book! But this order included a college book so yeah... already reached the limit with that book alone. XD

I love cutesy stories, so I had to give it a try. Plus, the price was so tempting. ;) Although the idea that the book has a sequel doesn't sound good to me. I mean, from what I've read-- they get married. Ugh, do we really need more after that? I don't wanna read about vampire babies!!! XD

Nope. Miley's gonna be in Wake. Oh lord, I don't want to see her in anything else. >.<

I LOVE the book trailer for the second book.


Rayne The world doesn't need vampire babies. Twilight already covered that. And it was awful. Well, once you read it let me know how it goes ^^

Didn't know that about amazon...I mostly bought from the sellers but you're right, B&N has way better prices.

For the sake of all human kind, she really shouldn't be doing any kind of acting. Or singing. Or breathing. XD


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

Hahaha I'll let you know. Maybe it's good. I'm honestly more wary about the sequel, and the fact that there's a short story based around the wedding. XD

Well, Amazon isn't doing it anymore. B&N has some amazing prices. I can't believe I didn't try it until today.

And hahaha, I agree about Miley. Did you know that the dude who plays Gale in THG movie is her ex/on and off boyfriend?


Rayne Ugh, yes. I know he is her ex. Its probably the only reason why they cast him as Gale since I'm sure its not because of his outstanding acting abilities. Did you know he is the younger brother of the guy who played Thor? O_o Now that guy, I couldn't care less if he is a good actor, they can - and should - cast him in everything XD But yeah, not looking forward to see him play Gale when his only acting experience in the big screen comes from a Miley Cyrus movie. Yuck.


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

All the movie people are like obsessed with casting him in them. They wanted to cast him as Daniel Grigori. WTF!

Pfft... I knew it, but I can't believe it. I love his brother. Hehehe XD

I'm not convinced by Liam. I just can't... ugh.


Rayne ....Him...as Daniel Grigori....ok...that would be disastrous...
well, at least he has natural blond hair like daniel. remember gale? you know, olive skinned, black haired, gray eyed gale? gale as in not like that liam-what's-his-face at all? XD lord, castings just keep getting worse and worse. didn't they had alex pettti- yeah that one- to play daniel anyway?


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

Hey! I didn't know that this book (Paranormalcy) was getting a movie. :O


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

I'm so over Alex Pettyfer. He's hot, but he's a total douchebag. He can GTFO and let Max Irons be Daniel. XD


Rayne hahahahaha I started hating him for two reasons: 1) I am Number Four and 2) Beastly, both of them movies which, sadly, I watched the same day one after the other. I don't care if he is hot (which he is) I hate his acting and he looks like a douche.

Oh God. This one is getting a movie too?! WTF?! Aren't there some screenwriters with ideas out there that don't include doing the Twilight thing and ripping off teenagers by making bad adaptations of their mediocre books?


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah, the director of Lady Gaga & Justin Bieber's music videos is directing it. LMAO

http://perezhilton.com/2011-08-11-jus...


Rayne ....yes, because, you know, a lady gaga video is totally like directing a y/a book adaptation...we should totally take this as a sign that is going to come out really great

Hahahaha Not only a Lady Gaga video, but a Justin Bieber. More specific, Baby, which is a total masterpiece. Honestly though, sounds like a mess already. XD


Rayne ....this just sent shivers down my spine. and not the good kind XD may the lord have mercy on our souls when this little gem comes out...


message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

Hahaha I honestly can't wait. I love watching terrible movies, I guess. Like I honestly can't wait to watch Breaking Dawn. Bwahahaha Never read the book, but I'm looking forward to the demonic baby. XD
