Halo – by : Alexandra Adorentto

Three angels- Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, the youngest and most human- are sent by Heaven to bring good to a world falling under the influence of darkness. They must work hard to conceal their luminous glow, superhuman powers, and, most dangerous of all, their wings, all the while avoiding all human attachments.

Then Bethany meets Xavier Woods, and neither of them is able to resist the attraction between them. Gabriel and Ivy do everything in their power to intervene, but the bond between Xavier and Bethany seems too strong.

The angel’s mission is urgent, and dark forces are threatening. Will love ruin Bethany or save her?

 

 

** spoiler alert ** As much as I enjoyed this book, their were just a few things i could not help but point out..The plot was really slow but Bethany the so called youngest angel was really.. immature.. stupid..naive.. oh gosh i cannot choose one, I’ll just stick to all of them.

She seemed like a remake of Bella.. so clingy, so obssesed.. she even let her little boyfriend get in the way of her mission with the almighty god. and i’m sorry this will contain some spoilers, but how could she even IMAGINE trying to fight against the heavens to stay with Xavier anyway? Reallyy naive.. Bella syndrome ! ❤ aha. To me the author should not have made Bethany like this a real turn off. Although the book didn’t match up to the cover i still give it errmmm 3 out of 5 stars.. Hopefully the second book will be better? I’m hoping. really hoping..because i loved this book despite it’s Belly syndrome-ness.

Before I Fall – By Lauren Oliver

What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all—looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12th should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it’s her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. In fact, she re-lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she had ever imagined.

 

 

This book is very hard to review.. I mean i’ve been sitting here for 20 mins trying to think of what to say but as i’m typing I’m still not sure what to say….. this book i admit is more than i anticipated when i picked it up.. to be honest i only bought it because the girl’s eyes looked really cute.. but this book really is.. excellent. Not only  a story but a life learner.. it really makes you open up your eyes and appreciate the little details of life you tend to over look.
Sam Kingston getting 7 tries to re-live the last day of her life. Everyday she tries something different trying to figure out the wrong thing to do.. unfortunately i can’t say much of this book because it would spoil it.. but i will say that it’s a bittersweet book and  like the reviewer said “you can’t help but tear through the book” i remember flipping through a few pages trying to glimpse what would’ve happened.. but i kept debating with myself ‘no no no Vicky you have to hold on there’ ha-ha. very good book. READ
5 out of 5 stars

 

Meridian : By Amber Kizer

Half-human, half-angel, Meridian Sozu has a dark responsibility.

Sixteen-year-old Meridian has been surrounded by death ever since she can remember. As a child, insects, mice, and salamanders would burrow into her bedclothes and die. At her elementary school, she was blamed for a classmate’s tragic accident. And on her sixteenth birthday, a car crashes in front of her family home—and Meridian’s body explodes in pain.

Before she can fully recover, Meridian is told that she’s a danger to her family and hustled off to her great-aunt’s house in Revelation, Colorado. It’s there that she learns that she is a Fenestra—the half-angel, half-human link between the living and the dead. But Meridian and her sworn protector and love, Tens, face great danger from the Aternocti, a band of dark forces who capture vulnerable souls on the brink of death and cause chaos.

This book had a really slow start but as i progressed i was very impressed with the uniqueness of it. I admit i did have the ‘jeepers’ for a few days because this book was semi creepy but who wouldn’t love a paranormal romance such a this. Plus fantasy, fantasy and a little religion thrown in there. Once again  like the book “forest of hands and teeth’ although they have two different authors they both discretely thrown in their views on certain Christians. Before i get to offensive or personal let me move on to the actual review or just sum this book up real quickly.
Since she was younger Meridian always seemed to be attracted to death, or  in other ways death was attracted to her. When she hits 16 her family surprsignly pack up and jet off and leave her to fend for herself in search of some lost family memeber. Later on in the book she finds out that she a Fenestra – half angel half angel. Someone who’s just a guide for the dead to the other room. The whole book then concludes or starts to get juicy with Meridian and her love/guardian fight against the arch enemies.. evil forces known as Aternocti.

Torment : By Lauren Kate

Hell on earth. That’s what it’s like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel. It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts – immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students -Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.

At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn’t told her everything. He’s hiding something – something dangerous. What if Daniel’s version of the past isn’t actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else? The second novel in the addictive FALLEN series . . . where love never dies.

This Book was horrible !!! It was very boring, their seemed to be only atleast 3 exciting parts. Once again the Luce character is very naive and annoying. It seems like a remake to The twilight saga if you ask me.. I was expecting better from Lauren. Hopefully the following book will be a little more impressive?

Although the first book wasn’t as exciting as i imagined it to be, i still thought that hey, maybe Lauren realized her weakness and came better with the second book……. GUESS NOT, boring as hell, i kept hoping hoping that something exciting would happen, but blah. I end up right where i left off.. poor old Luce and her boyfriend and their stupid love obsess issues. Goddamit..worst than twilight. I’m sorry but the book was so bad i can barely remember everything. But what  i do remember is Luce falling for another guy, Luce constantly ignoring Daniel. Daniel constantly treating Luce like a baby. And the kids constantly acting like idiots by bring up their “past” don’t worry you’ll understand what i mean by this. I’m hoping the third book will make me regret this blog but for now. Kate deserves this review. ❤

The Forest Of Hands and Teeth

In Mary’s world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?

 

This book was very interesting yet boring at times. Ryan knew how to make the ‘zombies’ more 21st century, for we all know that reading a book on the traditional zombies are really.. corny? But oh, let me correct my term, the ‘uncensored’. To me this book was like i said before very intriguing but at some points it seemed as if the author was trying to prolong the inevitable , lets not talk about Mary, oh my Mary. She reminds me so much of Isabella Swan, so stupid and naive ! I mean come on ! Did she really have to be that retarded, her so long ‘dream’ really was starting to get annoying. Though one thing i really did like about this book was how the author discreetly pointed out how two faced Christians can be. HEY HEY i am a Christian and all but some of us i admit can be completely fake and horrible. Let me get into the real review and you shall understand my judgement..hopefully.

This books seems to have taken place in the future, and it a plague going around or in other words ‘zombies’s poison’ was being transmitted with each bite then slowly defacing the entire human race. Mary the main character lives in a protected society which is being governed by the sisterhood. Same as how it was in the early 15th century.. the pope/church was the government. When Mary looses all her close love ones she then realizes how the horrible secrets of the sisterhoods and with this not being scary enough, she uses this as another boost for her curiosity to get the better of her. Then.. ( as predicted i may add) when her village is attacked by the uncensored the story then begins to unfold of Mary trying to find her way to her ‘dream’ (the ocean) and the sacrifices and battles she has to go through.

This book was to predictable.. it’s not very enjoyable,but i’d give it 3 out of 5 stars.

-A

This book really surprised us all didn’t it ! And yay, we finally figured out the ‘Jenna thing’ didn’t we. We are all so happy! right? 🙂 no, no we are not. Spencer stealing her sister fiancée (talk about a sleezy move, i mean even thought you guys hate each other that was low) Emily? oh poor Emily, going through that battle trying to figure out yourself, with your cute new little girlfriend Maya (pretty cute) and Aria oh Aria she has some Daddy issues and teacher issues? Oh yes people it gets juicy. Hanna
so overly obsessed with being fabulous! Better slow down cowgirl! 

Once again, Shepard brought me right into that little perfect world called Rosewood. You guys might think “oh noo why did you tell us so much” but trust me guys, this book is way more than it seems. The endless suspension plots and surprises never get old with Shepard. Marvelous work, again. I never got bored or tired in this book like i’d usually do for ‘mystery’ books but this book is just on it’s own level. I once again encourage you world! To pick up Sara’s pretty little liars hit series and enjoy the perfect yet scary and mysterious town known as Rosewood.

Pretty Little Liars Book 1 by Sara Shepard Review

 

Three years ago, Alison disappeared after a slumber party, not to be seen since. Her friends at the elite Pennsylvania school mourned her, but they also breathed secret sighs of relief. Each of them guarded a secret that only Alison had known. Now they have other dirty little secrets, secrets that could sink them in their gossip-hungry world. When each of them begins receiving anonymous emails and text messages, panic, sets in. Are they being betrayed by some one in their circle? Worse yet: Is Alison back? A strong launch for a suspenseful series

 

When I first heard about this series, which was at least three years ago I thought “ugh seriously? how could a book about dolls be so interesting?” obviously I was just judging the book by its cover. Come three years later, I adore it. When i first started reading this particular book I couldn’t put it down. What I liked about it was how Sherpard kept the suspense going. I remember speed reading just to figure out what the ‘Jenna thing’ was and little secrets along the way that Shepard threw in. Oh well, enough with my ranting on, I guess I should tell you about the book itself? yes im correct, here I go.

The book really is of four girls who ‘coincidentally’ became friends, to be specific best friends, their click being ruled by the one and only most fabulous Alison! One night when they were supposedly having the best night of their lives, poor little Alison disappeared. Through out this entire book the girls are being tormented and stalked with some of their deepest darkest secrets which they all assumed Alison took to the grave with her. Because all these secret are only what Alison knew, the one big question for them all was, is Alison really still alive?

I cannot exactly tell you more because it would just ruin a master piece, but I promise you if you just take your time out to at least buy only the first book!! you won’t even be in control of your body when you head to the store for the second and third and so on so on.
