Baby's Got Bite was such a cute and interesting story that I could not put down. It was page-turner in itself and that made the story that much more enjoyable to read.
Bennett Langdon has had a rough live, not knowing her dad growing up, and losing her mother just recently has put a lot of pressure on her. Her view on relationships has changed because of that, but that hasn't stopped her from hooking up with a sexy stranger at her best friend's wedding. From the minute they met, they instantly connected which made their wedding encounter impossible for them to deny it any longer. After having too much to drink, Bennett makes Linc Monahan a deal, to spend the night together with no strings attached. It's a proposal that will be a win-win for the both of them, and after insisting, Linc gives in and they spend the night together. Too bad after they went their separate ways, Bennett finds out that she is pregnant. Knowing that she is going to have to tell Linc, she braces herself for what is coming and how that is going to change her life.
Linc was shocked when he found out that he was going to be a father, in his mind he knew that that couldn't possible, and he was determined to find out who Bennett really is. But as a werewolf he is set to protect, and the pull that he feels towards Bennett grows stronger as the two start to get to know each other better. Nevertheless, there are still other issues that they need to take care of and one of them being what he is going to tell Bennett about the supernatural world, and of the creatures that might put them in danger when they find out about the baby.
I really enjoyed reading this book a lot, it had a very interesting start, and the progression that we get to see as their relationship grows made the book entertaining to read as well. There were times when some aspects felt a bit rushed, and what I didn't like as much was the reaction that Bennett has when Linc tells her that he is a werewolf. I was expecting it to be a bit dramatic, but she took it really well. It didn't add any drama to the story, but at times it would have been better to have a bit more action to make it more interesting. The story pretty much revolves around the fact that Bennett might not be human after all, and Linc has to find out what she is in order to know how to protect them. It doesn't end well for them after they find out the big secret, but they are still determined to protect the baby. On the other hand, there is the fact that neither of them want to admit that they are falling for each other due to previous experiences, and ultimately they have to learn to trust each other in order to make things work. In terms of their personalities, Bennett is outspoken and fun, whereas Linc is a bit more reserved and overprotective. It's a rather nice mix in characters that do work out in the end. I loved the very ending as well, it was sweet and left me wonder if we are going to get a separate story about their kid. From what we find out in the story, it seems like the baby's future could make a great story as well. I would definitely keep reading more, and I highly recommend reading this book. :)

Red Queen was such a great book, it exceeded my expectations from the world building to the characters, it will leave wanting for more.
Mare Barrow's world has been divided by blood- those with red blood have worked for the silvers, the elites with supernatural powers that have the ultimate power in her world. Not having much, she steals what she can to help out her family. After her brothers get sent to war, she and her younger sister are the ones that provide for the family. Only Mare is the one with no talent (or so she thinks), whereas her sister embroiders beautiful fabrics for the elites. When word gets out that she might get sent to war along with her best friend, Kilorn, she is set out to protect him no matter the cost. Little did she know that her life was about to change as soon as she meets a handsome stranger, Cal, who ends up getting her a job at the royal palace working for the King, his father. Not knowing what she was getting into, her luck changes when she discovers that she may have a talent after all, one that was going to set her apart from everyone else, a supernatural ability that she didn't know she had after all her blood is red and not silver.
From then on we are taken through a series of events that completely change the course of her life, as she gets the opportunity of a lifetime when she gets engaged to the prince Maven, Cal's younger brother. Now she has to fake being someone else while learning about her new abilities. It is then that a red rebellion is raising, with her in the castle close to the royal family she has the perfect plan to finally help the cause in order to protect those she loves.
From the epic fighting scenes to the supernatural powers, I was captivated with the set up of the book. As a red, Mare has to provide for her family, and that gives her an advantage in a sense that she knows how to get around, and how to defend herself. She is smart, yet there were times when she didn't make the best decisions. With her luck, she actually gets a job in the palace after almost stealing from Prince Cal (though she didn't know who he was at the time). It is at the palace that she finds out that the elite from around the land are coming to the palace to present their daughters to Prince Cal, the next in line to the throne. Being the heir he needs to pick a future queen based on just how powerful she is. This was actually one of my favorite parts of the whole book, where each girl gets to show her abilities. The idea reminded me of The Selection and X-Man combined (in terms of picking the next queen and of their abilities). It is evident that the author was influenced by a lot ideas, yet she kept some aspects original which I enjoyed.
Throughout the book we get to meet some of the girls and find out just how their families play a role in their world and the alliances that the King and Queen want to make and keep close. In terms of their personalities, like I mentioned before Mare is outspoken and she hates pretending to be someone else. Cal, on the other hand is calm and protective. Knowing that he is going to be the next king hasn't changed his personal views on how the red are treated. He wants to be fair, but at the end of the day he is brought up to fight and to know how to grow/use his ability when he needs to. Mare's ability is really cool, I didn't pick up any clues at the beginning of the book, it's later on that we get to find out just how powerful she is. Although I really enjoyed the book, there were some things that I didn't really like, one of them being the amount of romance that we get. There is a very little romance, and not a very detail world building that I would have liked to see. There are, however, a lot of twists and turns that had me up all night! I just couldn't stop reading the book, it's definitely one of the best books I've read in the “fantasy genre” thus far. I would highly recommend it, and I cannot wait to read what happens next after reading a jaw dropping ending in this book. :) ...more

Coming from a long line of “witch women,” Mala LaCroix has one thing in mind and that is to blend in with everyone around her. She has always been judged for who her mother is and she is determined to be as normal as anyone else. But soon things start to change around her the minute she discovers a girl's death body floating in her family's territory. Not only is she being haunted by the dead girl, but she is also finding herself being pulled by a force that she cannot control. The visions are only the beginning of her journey where she will discover secrets that are being kept in her town and the powers that have haunted her family for generations.
Landry Prince has always been caught in the middle between her family's beliefs and of the girl he has always had a crush on, Mala. When he finds out that his sister has been missing, and that his sister has mysteriously appeared in the LaCroix's territory, he can't help but wonder if Mala and her mother have anything to do with his sister's death. Yet after having an spiritual connection with Mala, have only added to him wondering what could his dead sister want from Mala so bad that she keeps giving her visions of her death. Now he has to find his sister's killer, deal with his family, and possibly try to get the girl that he loves.
I found myself liking the book a lot, the cover is what caught my attention at first, and the synopsis had me wanting to know more about the story. From the very beginning, I thought that the book had potential, the characters are well thought out, and the mystery throughout the story had me reading for hours. I enjoyed reading about the LaCroix family, it's been a while since I've read anything related to witches, and ghosts, that I thought that Angie Sandro did a good job executing the story. It was easy to picture the setting in the book, the way it is written really adds to the mystery. With that said, there were just a couple of things that could have been executed differently. The relationship between the main characters could have been developed a bit more, the story almost became a mystery novel without the romantic chemistry in the characters. Mala's personality evolves throughout the story that it changes her decisions constantly. She desperately wants to get rid of the visions that she has of Landry's sister, yet she is determined to find out what really happened to her no matter what. The ending was so unexpected, the big twist in the story really got me. Overall, I enjoyed reading Dark Paradise, if you enjoy reading paranormal mystery books this is definitely the book for you. (:

I have completely become a fan of The Lost Boys. Lilian Carmine did a great job with story and the characters. I absolutely loved them all, every single character has it's own story and personality that made me want to keep reading. When sixteen-year-old Joey Gray moves to a new town with her mom, she wasn't expecting to meet a mysterious yet old fashioned boy, Tristan, and that their connection would lead them to an unforgettable adventure.
When Joey arrives to her new home, she meets Tristan Halloway at the cemetery. At first Tristan is taken back when Joey talks to him, but soon he warms up to her presence and the two become really close. Joey goes back to meet Tristan at the cemetery everyday and soon she starts to feel more for him than just a friendship. On New Year's Eve, Tristan asks Joey to meet him at the cemetery when the unthinkable happens; not only does Joey find out that Tristan is really a ghost, but accidentally she has brings him back to being human again. No one knows how that happened, but now that Tristan's secret has been revealed he'll have to face this new time.
Both of them start the year at a new school where their real adventure really begins. They start new friendships and that's when they come together with their friends to form a band, The Lost Boys. But magic comes with a price and both Tristan and Joey will have to face it if they don't want to get hurt. Joey will have to find a way to keep Tristan or let him die/disappear all over again.
I have to say that the story itself was very well executed, all the plot twists and turns helped the story by bringing it to a unique level. When I first read the title I wasn't expecting it to be an actual band, I thought it was going to be something else. Needless to say, I was pleased with the idea and it captured what the rest of the book was about. The beginning of the book focused on building up a foundation for the rest of the story that was full of twists and amazing characters. The ending was sweet, I would have liked to see a little bit more, but it all worked out in the end. I would recommend this book to those that are looking for a sweet romantic story with a twist.

I was completely sucked into the story from the very begReview can also be found at my blog: Jackie's Book World :)
Beautifully written and engaging...
I was completely sucked into the story from the very beginning. Asleep is a retelling/influenced by the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. I found that this story was a lot more exciting than the original sleeping beauty. There are twists that no one would really expect it to have, but it works really well. I found myself liking the switching of point-of-views. It was refreshing to see how the two main characters interacted with others and how different they were. That being said, Asleep is about Princess Jessmyn's quest to rescue her true love/fiancee Prince Devaran from someone that is trying to take over the Five Realms. I really liked Princess Jessmyn's character, she is a strong and independent. She knows how working in a battlefield works and she is pretty much ready to become queen. On the other hand, Prince Devaran hides his true feelings by being sarcastic and rebelling against royal protocol. As these two different characters interact, it slowly becomes evident that they are falling in love with each other.
I guess the saying opposites attract works really well in the story. Both of them balance each other out, and they will need to use what they're good at in order to save the Realms from getting conquered. Although the beginning of the story was interesting, it felt a bit slow for my liking, but as it got closer to the climax, I was able to feel the excitement building up all the way to the resolution. I found myself liking Prince Dev's point-of-view a lot better than Jessmyn's. His point-of-view was a lot more informative when it came to finding out how they both met and how they fell in love. It was in the past for the most part, while in Jessmyn's point-of-view, we are able to see the present and how she gets ready to rescue her prince. Overall, it was a great story and I really recommend everyone to try it out. ...more
I was immediately grabbed by the beautiful cover and the premise. Even before reading the book, I knew it was going to be great. Doon is a magical scottish place that has been placed under a spell in order to protect the people of Doon from an evil witch. But the spell would not protect the people of Doon from what's coming to them.When Mackenna suggests that Veronica and her go to Scottland for a vacation. It couldn't have come at the right moment for her; after breaking up with her chearing boyfriend, and having a mom that doesn't really care for, Veronica decides to give herself a break and decides to go. But she wasn't expecting to have vivid dreams of a boy in kilt talking to her to come to him. As she and her friend embark in a new adventure, she will have to decide what truly is important in her life in order to save those that she loves.
I've been a fan of books that have been inspired by tales and other stories for a while, and this book has made it to my favorite list. I loved the over story, it was exciting and engaging. The book is beautifully written and that's what makes it a success for me. The characters have an important task in the story and it all seemed to flow nicely. With that being said, I really liked Veronica and Kenna. They are best friends going to a vacation and they end up with a great adventure in their lives. The cover of the book illustrates just how magical Doon is and it immediately grabbed my attention. The book does start a bit slow, but it builds up with excitement and the climax is where we are able to see more of the characters personalities.
The romance in the book is great, although Veronica and Jamie, the prince of Doon, don't have a great chemistry at the beginning, it does build up in the story. On the other hand, Kenna's love story with Duncan, Jamie's brother is full of excitement. I actually liked them, or at least their scenes a lot better. I'm really looking forward to reading more of their story in the second book! We do get to see different perspectives in the book, Veronica's and Kenna's point-of-views. It made the book that much more enjoyable to read. Overall, the story was great, and so did the characters. There are fighting scenes, romantic scenes and a detail description of the magical place of Doon. I would definitely recommend this book to those that want something romantic and magical. ...more

I absolutely loved this book! Julie Kagawa has blown my mind completely. I'm still trying to regain my thoughts about this book and what happened. No matter what Ethan Chase does, he can't seem to live at peace with all the fey following him around. After his return from the Nevernever, all he wanted was to have a normal life with his girlfriend Kenzie, but that didn't last long before his sister visits him and tells him that his nephew, Kierran, has gone missing. He knows that if he wants the fey to leave him alone, he should ignore everything that has to do with them, but when Annwyln comes asking for his help, he can no longer ignore what he has to do. After all, family should stick together no matter what right? In his quest of finding his nephew, he faces danger when he goes back to the world that he promised he'd never return. Now, with his girlfriend and Annwyln by his side, he'll have to find Kierran and stop him from causing more trouble.
I almost forgot how much I love Julie's writing, it's so vivid and it makes the whole book come to life. The flow of the story was both exciting and thrilling. It was hard to stop reading the book, without knowing what was going to happen next. The only thing that I'm guessing everyone will hate is the ending! The book ended with a huge cliffhanger and I can't stop thinking about what it's going to happen next. There were times when I felt bad for Ethan and Kenzie, it wasn't their battle to fight, but they both wanted to help Kierran. On the other hand, Kierran left me with mixed feelings, I can understand where his decisions were coming from, but he let what was around him cloud his better judgment. Although I wanted to see more from Meghan and Ash, there were some old characters that did showed up and I was ecstatic to see them come back again. Overall, the book was amazing. I recommend everyone to read the series you will absolutely love it.

I'm really enjoying Gina Lamm's Geek Girls Series so far, the first book completely captured my attention and this book did exactly the same thing. From the cover to the title, I was very much interested in reading this book from the very beginning. The author mixes humor with romance and history all in one, and it works very well.
From the start we meet Leah Ramsey, she loves dressing up in period costumes and dreaming about her own fairy tale romance, but she hasn't been lucky when it comes to finding the right person to love. She knows that time travel is possible since her best friend, Jaime, has traveled back in time to find the love of her life. Leah knows that if she stays she is not going to find anyone that is going to make her happy. So she goes back in time, to Regency England to find the Duke she has been destined to be with. But not everything looks as it seems and she soon realizes that she might be making a mistake and her Duke wasn't meant for her at all. The more time she spends back in time, the more adventures she has, including meeting Avery Russell, whose help she desperately wants in order to find her true love.
I really liked Leah's personality in the book, she is strong minded, yet she is vulnerable when it comes to finding love. She is funny and I can only imagine what it would be like to travel back in time. Avery Russell is a very likable character, he is sensible and charming. Although he is not a Duke, he is a hard-working men who deeply cares about Leah and he does everything he can to keep her safe. The writing makes the story flow beautifully and I can easily connect with the characters which made everything that much more exciting. From action scenes to romantic nights, this book has it all. I recommend everyone to give this book a try, you will not regret it.
The story starts of with Ethan's funeral, Darren's brotBlog Tour! Check out my blog for review, excerpt and giveaway of Bewitched @Jackie's Book World
The story starts of with Ethan's funeral, Darren's brother, who at the time was a normal high school student until he started seeing weird things happening around him that he could only see. Unaware of what was happening to him, he decides to ignore them, but it was hard to do so when his grandfather start telling him what he is and what he is destined to do. The story takes off from there, and it becomes one with twists and turns that left me wanting for more. It was well written, full of action, secrets and surprises. When a new girl, Samantha, enrolls as a student in the same high school, Darren is left to wonder whether or not there is a reason why she was there. The interactions that he has with those closest to him are vital in order to fulfill his destiny, they all play an important role in his life. The complexity of the characters make the story just that much more interesting and exciting to read. Mark's use of detail and history (with a twist) made the story believable. The ending left me wanting for more. Overall, Mark Harris has created a world that is exciting, where witches, demons, and those that are after the witches coexist. From the first page to the last, I was able to go into this world that he has created with so much detail. I was intrigued and bewitched by this story, and I can't wait to read the next book of the series, “The Return of the Familiar.”...more
When I started reading this book, one of the things that throw me off a little was the beginning. I completely misread the title and it didn't click that I was reading another part of a story. (separate story), so that was a bit confusing to read. But as soon as I started reading chapter one, things started to make sense. The main character, Cailleach McFay, is a professor/author of folklore, and she is at a interview in Fairwick, New York for a job as a professor. One of the things that struck me the most is that Juliet was able to remain the facts/events a mystery rather than revealing them right away. As Cailleach emerges herself in the school, and with the people of Fairwick, she discovers that the small town is full of secrets and mystery. Witches, and demons occupy the small town, especially one that haunts Cailleach at night. Which I didn't fully understand what it was until after she moves into a “haunted house” near the college that she is teaching at. As things unravel, Cailleach is pulled deep into the world of the witches and demons. I very much liked her character, her adventures in Fairwick take the story to a whole new level of mystery and adventure. Although the ending leaves us with a cliffhanger, it would be interesting to read the next book.
I would recommend this book to readers that like mystery, romance, and (witches and demons). ...more
When I first heard that the last book was going to be in Ash's P.O.V, I couldn't believe it. I just had to get my hands on it and FAST! The book coverWhen I first heard that the last book was going to be in Ash's P.O.V, I couldn't believe it. I just had to get my hands on it and FAST! The book cover is just amazing, it fits him (that's how I pictured Ash to look like). When I started reading the book, I thought it went slow at the beginning, but it got better when Ash starts recalling past events, things that had happened in his past that will lead him into his future. It was intriguing to see a different side of Ash, a much more vulnerable guy that will do anything to be with the girl he loves, instead of a cold-hearted prince. Puck was also in this adventure, and he becomes Ash's companion in his journey. There was definitely a lot of twists and turns that I was so not expecting! It just made his adventure a lot more complicated, but it was nice to see how he was not going to give up on his quest. His oath is what leads him to the End of the World (literally), where he is tested with trials and the truth of his past. Although it was hard to read those events (since they were actually very painful to read) as readers we get to see just how much Ash is willing to give up for a soul. The last few chapters were shocking, I was not expecting to see so much of the outcome of Ash's quest. In his last test, Ash is able to come to a conclusion, whether he wants to stay as he is or be with Meghan.
In this book, we are able to see the value of humanity, and just how much Ash is willing to give up for Meghan. This is definitely one of my favorite series, since the beginning of this whole adventure, The Iron Fey series has had twists and turns that left me wanting for more. The ending left me breathless and just happy to see that there is always a happy ending at the end. I'm onto the next book by Julie Kagawa (my new favorite author) The Lost Prince. :) ...more

Being the second book, it just picks up where it lefts off in the first book. I feel that there is a lot more drama going on in this book than in the first one. There is a lot more going on with Meghan in this book, that she really has to make a choice of whether to be with Ash or Robin. I will definitely be confused as well if I was her. I mean, they are both great and mischievous, that it makes it difficult to pick one of them. The war between the Iron Fey and the seasons starts to heat up as the story unfolds. There are new characters that definitely make their way into the story just to fill it out with more twists and turns! In this particular book Meghan discovers more secrets and the things that she is able to do in order to protect those that she loves. Although she doesn't fully develop as a character, she is still learning to cope with the events that are happening around her. Towards the ending, I couldn't put it down. I just had to know what was going to happen to Meghan and Ash. Overall, it was an excellent book! I loved it and can't wait to read the next book. :) ...more

Hidden was actually a good book, it explained a lot of things that weren't explained in the other books. I like the new characters in the series, Aurox is AMAZING!, which makes me wonder if he is going to be with Zoey at the end. Shaylin is a sweet character as well as her gift. Travis and Lenobia totally surprised me, but they make a good couple!! <3 What I wasn't expecting was the whole situation with Zoey's grandmother, but I like the fact that she was really nice to Aurox. Although there seems to be a lot of drama between the new "love triangle" and Neferet, I wonder when everything is going to end. I mean, I feel like the series should have ended a while ago! (Although the books have been nice, it would be great to see an end to the story instead of dragging it for so long) Overall, the book was great, I can't wait to read the next book and see where everything goes.

The book completely turned the whole series around, it's by far my favorite book of the series. The amount of drama that was in the book made everything suspenseful. I love the fact that Ash and Meghan were able to be together as a couple in this book. ;) There were a lot of sweet moments that made made my heart melt, just to think that they were together was great. In this book, there was a whole new factor involved, as Meghan gets a preposition from the Summer King and Winter Queen. It is because of this preposition that she was able to grow and defend herself and the ones she loves. The whole love triangle was finally clear in the book as well, and she was able to pick one of them. Although the ending brought me to tears, I couldn't help to feel sad for those that got hurt and hopeful to see what Ash and Puck are going to do next. With more suspense and thriller, I can't wait to read what happens to Meghan, Ash and Puck in the next book.
I didn't quite know what this book was going to be about, but when I started reading it, I immediately noticed that it was in Ethan's POV (Meghan's brI didn't quite know what this book was going to be about, but when I started reading it, I immediately noticed that it was in Ethan's POV (Meghan's brother). I was intrigued at what could possibly happened to him if he is no longer associated with the fey, but I was wrong. His story is just like his sister's. They are both haunted by the fey whether they liked it or not, and that causes problems for him. What I liked about the book is that previous characters made an appearance into his journey. I was excited to see familiar faces coming into Ethan's world to help him. In this new book, there are new forces threatening the exiles and half-breeds in the both fey world and mortal world. Now that Ethan is a lot older, he is still haunted by what took him when he was little, and for that reason he must train himself in order to protect those around him, including his friend Todd and Kenzie. What I really liked about this book overall is that we get to see a special character that Ash saw in the last book (The Iron Knight) when he was facing all those test to prove that he was worthy of a soul. It was definitely a different perspective in point-of-views, but I got to see a whole new world/creatures that appear in this book. Meghan is quite a character when it comes to protecting those she loves, Ash <3 is super protective when it comes to this book (although they are not in the story a lot) and Puck, he literally made me laugh whenever he appeared in the story.
Overall, this was a new adventure that I enjoyed reading. Ethan as Meghan's brother gets to have an adventure full of thriller, twists, shocking revelations, and most of all, a new love interest. I definitely recommend this book to those who have read the Iron Fey series. I can't wait to read the next book in this new series The Traitor's Son. :)...more

I've been meaning to read this series for a while, but I just haven't had the time to read it until now. Overall I like the mixture of magic and the "modern world". It seems like nature is fighting against technology/iron. What I like about this book is the mythical creatures involved as well as the seasons. It was scary when Meghan's brother, Ethan was taken away. Her whole conquest throughout the book was to find her brother. I was not expecting the twists and turns that the book took while I was reading it. It was exciting and very unexpected towards the end. It would be interesting to see what happens to Meghan next. I will definitely recommend this book! I can't wait to read the second book of the series, it's going to be awesome! :D

The Elite was better than I the first book! When I found out that there was going to be a sequel of The Selection I was ecstatic, I couldn't wait for the second book to come out. I fell in love with the cover as soon as it got released, right then I knew that The Elite was going to be awesome! It also had been a while since I read The Selection, so I had to re-read it (just in case), but that made things far more exciting (reading both books back-to-back). From the very beginning,The Elite exceeded my expectations, it was exciting, far more eventful and there were a lot of Maxon and America moments. The author did a good job describing the competition and how America was feeling about it. In The Elite, the girls left are tested on various tests that show if they are truly fit to become a good princess or not. Stakes are higher, and America finds herself in the middle of two guys. Both Maxon and Aspen have what it takes to make America happy,but it is because of that, that she still can't decide who to choose. It's evident that both Maxon and Aspen love American, but it's their actions that really are tested in this book. Overall, the book was well-written, I love the new events in the book and it was far more exciting to read. Now, the reason why this book is rated with 4.5 stars instead of 5, it's because I kept getting frustrated with America with not making quick decision in the book. Just when I though she was going to stay with Maxon,she kept thinking about Aspen. The whenever she was with Aspen, she doubted Maxon's love for her. It was definitely a roller coaster of emotions, but the ending was great. A cliffhanger if you asked me, but it was great. Now I can't wait to read the last book on the series. I can't to see who America ends up with at the end. :) ...more
