Nordic Fairies Review

Hey guys! I just finished Nordic Fairies by Saga Berg. Here is my review: I loved it. The cliffhanger at the end was great. I can't wait to read the next book. Svala, is a strong, loving girl. I don't know if I could be as strong as her, especially since I don't have the years of experience as she does. Reading about her attachment to Viggo and Tyrm, I feel really bad for her when all the things start to fall apart. Viggo seems to be a mysterious, caring character. With what we've read about him, you can understand why all the girls are going crazy over him. Tyrm, is such a strong, smart man. Of course, with all this experience he has he'll be smart. Being able to not follow his love into becoming Döckálfar proves just how strong he is. I, just like Svala, am not sure if I could do what he did. I give this a 4/5 rating. Did this novella reach my high expectations? Yes, it did. It was spectacular. Would I recommend it and who? Yes, I would. I'd recomm

top 10 things to save

Hey guys! I already did the top 10 books that I'd save... Now I'm doing the top 10 things - so anything at all - that I'd save. Whether it is a fire, earthquake, whatever. Again, same thing applies here as it did in the top 10 books that I'd save, it doesn't matter if you're/I'm borrowing the thing. Just pretend that it's yours. Its not in any other particular order. Also, don't think about anything for survival. This is just a pleasure one. No survival/death situations. Oh, and please tell me whats your list. Thanks!

Between The Land And The Sea

Hey guys! So, guess what?! I've finished Between The Land and The Sea last night!!! :D As I said I would get the review done by today. So, here it is! =) The actions, reactions, and feelings of the characters seem realistic. Ethan is an complicated, understanding and interesting character. He is the perfect match for Marina. Marina develops well throughout the story. She is very mysterious. As the story goes on you find out more and more about her and start to understand her better. Marina isn't very good with opening up and sharing things with others. I can see why Marina and Ethan are together. Their lives are so very similar. They are both extremely caring and protective with each other. They don't doubt each other and would believe whatever the other said. That I'd say is true trust and is hard to find. Their love is very strong and intimate. I must say that I love reading about them being together. I love how Megan and Cruz are always making fun of them. Yo

New Pages

Hey guys! I just wanted to say that I put some new pages up. The pages, which you can view to the left, are  Short Bio ; Book Reviews ; Reading List ; My Writing Process ; Contact, Info, and Credits ; and last but not least Home . I'm going to explain to you what each are about. In Short Bio , its just a page thats about me. There's not much to explain about this. In Book Review , you can see all of my book reviews that I've posted. Instead of searching through them all in here. Currently there's only one, Vampire Academy, since its the only one I've finished already. I'm working on more though. In Reading List , you will be able to see a list of the books I'm currently reading. Next to some of the names you'll see parenthasese then a percentage. Those are the percentage that I've read of the book. Its only on some of the books, because I haven't worked out the percentage of all the books I am currently reading. I am hoping to get all th

First Review for books!!! :)

Hey all! So, I thought I'd write a review for Vampire Academy. If you have any requests for books I should read and review, then just post it in the comments or send me an email at  info@samanthaarnold.info Here's the review: The teenagers' actions, feelings and thoughts were realistic. Dimitri is an honorable, understanding and interesting character. He can teach a lot to Rose. Rose is mature in her own way, that few character seem to fail to see. Yes, she is a party animal and flirt, but that is only her way of trying to have fun and make all she can out of life. I understand why Rose and Dimitri have attraction to each other. Their lives are very much in sync. They are both hard to control, but know the line between right and wrong and would prefer to not cross it. Their love is very strong and intimate. I must say that I am kinda addicted to their romance. However, I fail to see how nobody except for Victor and Natalie has noticed it. Lissa seems to me like an
