Steph (angel4492) | 28263 comments Hiya, Team Caps! Thanks for volunteering to guide your team through a round of BookShelf Bingo!

Your job, should you choose to accept it, will require a few things:
1 ~ Be our go-to person should we have any questions about your team
2 ~ Organize your teammate's weekly reads for each shelf/category so that the BSB Ninjas can quickly and easily verify and approve your stamp request(s)
2a ~ Create a master list in a post (preferably on the first page of your team's thread) and update it weekly or as often as necessary
2b ~ Post your team's stats on the Captain's Log prior to requesting a stamp
3 ~ Encourage and motivate your team (you may also ask to borrow Judithe's whip whenever necessary)
4 ~ Post regularly to ensure your team is communicating and on track each week
4a ~ Send them a PM and friendly poke if they haven't posted at least once a week, noted their book choice, and/or appear to have dropped out of webspace
5 ~ Send us a PM (Steph, Sandra or Judithe) should you need us for any reason throughout the game

Review: Such a Unique book!

Angels blood so very unique! Take all of the books that you’ve read with angels in them and throw them out the freaking window because this is not those books! Angels creating vampires?! What?! Humans being able to smell vampires and hunt them and taste them on the wind?! No freaking way! But it’s true this book has all that and more , death, destruction, rebirth and I highly recommend that you read it! I cannot wait to get into book 2 of the series I am extremely excited to do so!

Review: I decided to read this one first because I’m sick and needed something I could follow relatively easy. Just as I thought, loved it just as much as I loved Illuminae. I actually finished in a span of a few hours lol I did not want to put it down. Not entirely sure why, but I love AIDAN. Definitely my favorite character. I love all the twists and turns this series takes and I can not until I can dive into Obsidio.

Review; I really enjoyed this start to the Fallen Angels series. The first couple of chapters I was trying to figure out OK where are you going with this story. Then all of a sudden I was reading and couldnt put it down. Well done characters and story.
Briefly Jim was an ex military who was working construction and has an accident on the job, he meets some angels and is returned to earth to help people in the crossroads of life. Vin is an uber rich guy who has a hot- bitchy girlfriend Devina. Marie Therese is an exotic dancer. These three are the focus for Jim. There is witty, snarky, humor and great bunch of side angels that help Jim. Will definitely continue with the series.

Review: ok why did it take me sooo long to read this?? I didn’t realize I missed these characters and world so much. Plus all the twists and reveals made it all that more better. I’m still highly upset about a certain thing that happened (probably won’t ever be over it) and I have questions about things said or done towards the end. I just might have a Shadowhunter Fall.

Rating: 3.5 stars

Review:
I had read the first in the series many years ago. It is a spin off series from the Night Huntress, which has my fave book couple Cat & Bones. This focus on Vlad Dracul and Leila. The story continues on from the first. Leila was hoping that Vlad was going to propose marriage but she was disappointed when he didn't and he wanted to do a vampire bonding ceremony. Leila left and returned to the circus and her mentor Marty. Someone was trying to kill her and the whole story was about trying to find the traitor from Vlad's circle. The reason I enjoy these books is the writing is witty and light. Its not a dark vampire story.
