My Soul To Take Review

Hey guys!
Like I said in the review for The City of Bones, I finished My Soul To Take! Yay! Hahaha. Well, here is the review that  I promised to you. Wait... Did I promise? No, I didn't. So, here's the review I told you about. ;)

Review:
This book was thrilling and exciting. It introduced a new kind of creature. Well at least I've never heard of them. :) They're called... bean sidhes! Cool huh? Wanna know they do or are like? Well you gotta read this series. Hahaha. I'm not gonna spill the beans.

Kaylee (love that name hehe) is so strong. Having that scream itching it's way up her throat and trying to force it out of her must be so hard to contain. Yet, she does somehow. And seeing those. Those.... Things. How does she bare it?! It's freaky! And she is so forgiving. With what her dad has done to her. Yeah, I'd probably forgive him too. And that awful guilt she must feel. The guilt of letting those people die. Now, to add the blame of her moth…

The City of Bones Review

Hey guys! I finished The City of Bones a few days ago, but am writing this now! Yay! hahaha. Sadly, I don't have the next book with me to read at the moment. :( And I just finished reading My Soul to Take. That review is coming right after I finish writing this and that. I'll have to read my e-books for now then.

Review:
This is a brilliant world to slip into and explore. It's cool and amazing. It has several twists. I love the motorcycles. I wish I had one for the night. Hehe. Especially if it comes with Jace. It's a package deal. ;) OK, enough about my little fantasy. There was one part where they mentioned Abbadon. I was like Oh. My. Gosh. Because Jack Force from Blue Bloods was Abbadon, so that got my little worlds to get mixed and stuff and I was like ahhh! So back to reality/the book, it's just great.

The little twist between Clary and Jace really pissed me off! Why?! Why?! Don't worry, I won't tell you guys what it is. You have to read it …

Teaser Tuesday #3

Hey guys! :D

I'm back with another teaser! Yay! Hehehe. I was supposed to do an In My Mailbox yesterday, but I didn't get anything so I couldn't do one. Here is what you do:
·Grab your current read
·Open to a random page
·Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
·BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!(make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
·Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My Teasers:

"I nodded but wasn't sure that I actually could. My head rang with the echo of screams unvoiced, my legs wobbled, and my free hand grasped the air. A soft, high-pitched mewling leaked from me now, the song seeping through my imperfectly sealed lips. And with it came a familiar darkness, that odd gray filter overlaying my vision. The world felt like it was closing in on me, while something else-anomalous forms a…

Every week I will be posting a fun cover of a book. Some I may have read. Others I haven't.
Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink I think that the cover is great for the book. It goes perfectly along with the story. The era is correct, the way the sisters look is great (the eyes are really perfect), and the font works. I also like how they put the praise at the bottom in just that black thing so it's not in the way of the cover photography.


Summery:
An ancient prophecy divides two sisters-

One good...

One evil...

Who will prevail?

Twin sisters Lia and Alice Milthorpe have just become orphans. They have also become enemies. As they discover their roles in a prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other, the girls find themselves entangled in a mystery that involves a tattoo-like mark, their parents' deaths, a boy, a book, and …

I haven't done this is such a long time!

And then you'd turn to me and smile that funny smile, and I'd know you'd forgotten all about me and just remembeed-but I was never mad at you."

IMM #2

Hey guys! I haven't done this in like forever (okay, just a few months). :) Anyways here it is! :)


So, I bought the book My Soul To Take by Rachel Vincent yesterday. It is the first book in the Soul Screamers series. I can't wait to read it. There would be more, but I just moved so I didn't get to buy many books... Sorry.

Bye!

I was supposed to do this yesterday but I didn't so I'm doing it today! :P Now, to the CANDY! xD

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare I think the cover is really cool how they have the man just standing there over the city. You can tell it's one of the characters (for those who haven't read the book yet, I won't say who it is). It helps those without that good of an imagination figure out what the character is supposed to look like. I just think the whole cover is cool.

Summery:

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder -- much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin ai…

The Goddess Test Review

Hey guys! I finished reading The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter last night and so here's my review! :) Of course, now I want the next book in the series. I'm just dieing to read what's next, but I can't get it yet. At least I have time to read other books for now. At the moment I am currently reading The City of Bones. Glad I can finally read this. :P Oh and I finished The Van Alen Legacy! Yay! hehe >.<

Book Cover:

Review:
This book was so interesting and fun. It made me want to study Greek mythology again, not that I ever stopped wanting to. It just boosted my love for Greek mythology. It even caused me to gain a  new favorite god! Hades! It used to be Zeus, then Poseidon, and now Hades. Haha the main three! :P I used to absolutely hate Hades, but then I started to like him and now look what's happened! He just bumped up to #1 on my favorite gods and goddesses lists. Woo hoo! You go Hades! hahaha.

I would've never guessed what the 7 tests were. I had absolu…

Inkspell Review

Hey guys! I finished Inkspell sometime in June, but I didn't write the review because I was too lazy to. I wanted to write it, but I was too lazy to actually do it. :P I don't have Inkdeath just yet, but I'd love to read it soon.

Book Cover:

Review:
Inkspell is such a fun and sad story. There's a lot of death in it, because there is a battle. Cornelia did great in writing this and keeping the characters true to who they are, although Mo had changed a bit but that is part of the plot. There are truely some sad parts. I even cried because of some of it.

What angers me in this books, is how Farid makes Maggie do all these things that she knows she shouldn't do. It also angers me how Fenoglio makes such silly decisions and makes Maggie read things she knows she shouldn't. However that is life. People make silly decisions upon silly reasons. They make others do things that could hurt them emotionally or physically because of their wants.

Cornelia was so smart in maki…

Masquerade Review

Hey guys! I finished reading Masquerade and Revelations awhile ago and am now on The Van Alen Legacy. And I'm almost done with that too! I'm addicted to the Blue Bloods series! I didn't get around to writing the review for Masquerade or Revelations because of moving, but since I've already moved and am now just waiting for the boxes to come so I'm writing the reviews now. :) I hear that the graphic novel is being made for Blue Bloods too! Yay!

Book Cover:

Review:
Masquerade was an amazing addition to the Blue Bloods series. It's absolutely wonderful. It keeps you guessing and waiting with some mysteries. Here Schuyler finds out she has new cool abilities that she had no idea she could do, there's a new blue blood, and a lot of trouble (as usual).

Melissa de la Cruz. I gotta thank you for creating this group of vampires. Go Blue Bloods! hehe Oh and wonderful love triangle Melissa. Team Jack all the way! :P Seriously love the ball and party! It was wonderfull…

Hourglass Review

Hey guys! I finished the book, Hourglass by Myra McEntire awhile ago. I'm finally getting around to writing the review. :D There is one other book in this series and one more coming out in 2013. Can't wait to get my hands on them

Book Cover:

Book Review:
Hourglass is such an original book. And I'm so glad Myra McEntire wrote and published Emerson's story. I understand why she'd think she's crazy because I would think I were crazy too if I were in her position. I don't think I'd be able to go out in public if I were her. She's so brave. Especially with what happened to her parents and what's going on. I'm surprised the thought of suicide hasn't even crossed her mind!

The cover is gorgeous. I've heard a lot of good comments about Hourglass and that made me want to read it, but I never did. The cover of the book is what actually really caught my eye and made me read it. I know, I know. Don't judge a book by its cover. I'm guilty …

Prophecy of the Sisters Review

Hey guys! I finished the book Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink awhile back but never got to actually right the review so I'm doing this now! :P I would be reading the next book in the series but I was silly and packed it in the shipping box instead of laying it aside. I have all three books in the series. :P There are three novellas in this series too! I can't wait to find them. I think I might go hunt them down soon.

Book Cover:

Review:
The book was amazing! There are so many mysteries and I love to guess what the answer to the mystery is so I just keep trying to figure it out and then there would be a turn in the road and you find out you're wrong and oh it's just so thrilling! :D I feel soo soo bad for Lia with what happens to the men in her life. I wish she would tell James. I don't know how she stays so calm. I'd be freaking out if I were in her place. I still secretly wish I were in her place though, no matter how awful it'd be.

India

Hey guys!

I've just moved to India yesterday morning. So today is my second day in India! Yay! :D The driving here scares me though. I'm sure I'll get used to it in a while... That's it! Bye!

Little Update

I'll tell you their names. hehe. So there's Juliet (the heartbreaker haha), Taylor (the writer), and Will (the uh... yeah book nerd?). There'll be more. …
