Read from May 18 to 21, 2011 — I own a copy

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Falling Under. It was a deeply sensual and provocative love story between two beings of two different worlds.
Let me just say that I love Haden. He was so mysterious, creepy, yet romantic and just plain amazing! I could really feel the connection between the characters. He´s the bad “guy” in the mysterious world and I loved all the romance & the twists!

Hayes is a talented writer who has blended horror and romance fantastically with this book.
It was beautifully written and I'm dying to read the second installment of this series! If you're into dark paranormal fairytale filled with love, magic, horror and with plenty of sexual undertones everywhere, then this is the book for you.

Quotes Scarlet Liked

Gwen Hayes
“I'm probably half in love with a boy I don't really like.”
Gwen Hayes, Falling Under

Gwen Hayes
“Do you think it’s easy for me? No, I don’t remember you. I don’t remember holding you or talking to you or falling in love with you—but I walk around with a giant hole in my heart all the time. I feel your absence every second of the day. It aches and nothing soothes it. Losing you is bad enough, but I don’t even get the comfort of remembering that I had you once.
-Haden”
Gwen Hayes, Falling Under

Gwen Hayes
“He walked backwards a few more steps and brought Brittany’s hand to his lips without taking his eyes off me.
My hand tingled where he kissed her.
And the bastard knew it.”
Gwen Hayes, Falling Under

Gwen Hayes
“My very own goth Mr. Darcy. Jane Austen would be so proud.”
Gwen Hayes, Falling Under

Gwen Hayes
“Up is down. Down is up.”
“And that means … ?”
“I’m probably half in love with a boy I don’t really like.”
Gwen Hayes, Falling Under

Gwen Hayes
“What an actor my demon was.”
Gwen Hayes, Falling Under

Gwen Hayes
“This isn't a crush, it's obsession.You are never not in my thoughts. Your scent carries across a room and paralyzes me with longing. I don't want to hold your hand. Part of me wants to set you on fire and hold you while the flame consumes us both, to eat your heart so I know that only I possess it entirely.”
Gwen Hayes, Falling Under

Gwen Hayes
“He raised his bony fingers as if to touch me and I steeled myself not to flinch as his hand, still smoldering, neared my face.

He rattled and spoke his last words. "Worth...the...fall.”
Gwen Hayes, Falling Under

Gwen Hayes
“His dark hair was thick and looked so soft I had to resist the urge to touch it. Looking into his dark eyes was like falling into the stars, making me feel weightless and disoriented.”
Gwen Hayes, Falling Under

Gwen Hayes
“He smiled and it was beautiful and horrible what I saw in it. Hope that should not be born and desire that could never bear fruit. Whether they were my feelings or his, I did not know.”
Gwen Hayes, Falling Under

Gwen Hayes
“Who was your first kiss?” Heat rushed into my face. I flattered myself by thinking maybe he wanted to kiss me. I wished he wanted to kiss me. “I haven’t …” Squeezing my eyes closed, I began again. “I haven’t been kissed. Yet.” “Why?” I rolled my eyes at his innocence.
“You obviously know I’m not like other girls. I’m shy and I don’t spend time with boys. My father is strict and—” “That’s not why.” He thought he knew me so well.
“Fine. You tell me why I haven’t been kissed.”
I regretted the words and my tone instantly. What if he told me what I already knew? That I was lacking. Not interesting or pretty enough. “You were waiting.”
Gwen Hayes, Falling Under

Zemira (Kylo Ren fangirl) Warner Hmm...odustala sam od ove knjige. Nešto me nakon polovine prestala zanimati. Ovaj Haden se počeo luđački ponašati i riješila sam to po kratkom postupku. :D
Javiš mi ako na kraju bude ličilo na nešto?


Scarlet Zato što je Haden tako Patch like, a ti ni njega ne voliš (a ja ga obožavam). Očigledno sam ugrožena, ali knjiga mi je zasad ODLIČNA!!!


Zemira (Kylo Ren fangirl) Warner E baš sam mislila kako je kao Patch. Ko bi rekao da su ti ljudi anđeli sa obzirom da kako se ponašaju prema djevojkama.


Scarlet Pali anđeli su u biti demoni, a Hadenova majka je succubus... I like it!!!


Zemira (Kylo Ren fangirl) Warner Znam da ću malo sa teme skrenuti ali poslala sam mail ljudima u Znanju,pitala da li mogu poslati neke knjige u Konzum blizu mene i normalno ne mogu to tako raditi. Mada kažu da će od iduće sedmice stići novi naslovi u sve bosanske konzume. Pitam se šta je poslati,sigurno nešto što mene ne zanima. Nama uvijek neke ostatke daju. Uf!

Hej,skoro sam zaboravila. Čitala sam treći dio onih vampira ono bratstvo. To je imalo najveću ocjenu,pa sam to uzela,iako sam prije počela prvi dio čitati ali mi se nije svidjelo,ali ovaj Zsadist je neki izmučeni junak da je toliko odlična knjiga. Mada čitala sam samo one sexy dijelove. :D Da si me samo vidjela,pola vremena sam držala ruku na ustima i gledala oko sebe da li me iko posmatra. Malo manje od pola mi je ostalo.


Scarlet JA. TREĆU. KNJIGU. I. ZSADISTA. OBOŽAVAM!!!
Poznato mi je preznojavanje i svi hladni tuševi za vrijeme čitanja.
Ali treći dio ti nema baš previše smisla bez prva 2 (u prvoj vjerovatno nisi došla do 60 i neke stranice? Zar ne?!)...

Joooj, baš mi je žao zbog Konzuma. Znam da su neke knjige i ovdje već totalno rasprodane. Ovaj mjesec je izašla Povijesničarka za 29kn!


Zemira (Kylo Ren fangirl) Warner Nisam daleko stigla sa prvim dijelom. Zadnje čega se sjećam je onaj san. Ali sigurno sam i još nakon toga nastavila čitati samo ne sjećam se tačno šta bude dalje. Ne znam nešto mi se ne čita to.
Trenutno čitam Friday Night Bites. To je drugi dio od Chicagoland Vampires. I tu ima nekih sexy scena,ali ne previše. Dovoljno za moj ukus.


Scarlet A jesi li čitala LANEY. Čula sam odlične dojmove...


Zemira (Kylo Ren fangirl) Warner Imam to negdje na kompu. Ne znam nešto da li ću je čitati. Damije prvo da završim sa ovim serijalom. Imaju četiri knjige. Nadam se da ću do kraja iduće sedmice biti gotova.
Kako ide sa Falling Under? Svidio mi se početak,kada on spadne sa neba i kaže da je bilo vrijedno. Awwww...
Mislim da ću ipak završiti ovu knjigu. :)


Scarlet Ma knjiga je odlična, samo ja imam dječji vrtić kod kuće pa nikako da uhvatim malo slobodnog vremena i to završim!
Završi ju...
