The wait is over. dig into the feast…In the town of Morganville, vampires and humans live in relative peace. Student Claire Danvers has never been convinced, though-especially with the arrival of Mr. Bishop, an ancient, old-school vampire who cares nothing about harmony. What he wants from the town’s living and its dead is unthinkably sinister.

And it’s giving night school a whole new meaning.
Lord of Misrule: The Morganville Vampires, Book 5

In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans coexist in (relatively) bloodless harmony. Then comes Bishop, the master vampire who threatens to abolish all order, revive the forces of the evil dead, and let chaos rule. But Bishop isn’t the only threat. Violent black cyclone clouds hover, promising a storm of devastating proportions as student Claire Danvers and her friends prepare to defend Morganville against elements both natural and unnatural.
Carpe Corpus: The Morganville Vampires, Book 6

In the small college town of Morganville, vampires and humans lived in (relative) peace-until all the rules got rewritten when the evil vampire Bishop arrived, looking for the lost book of vampire secrets. He’s kept a death grip on the town ever since. Now an underground resistance is brewing, and in order to contain it, Bishop must go to even greater lengths. He vows to obliterate the town and all its inhabitants-the living and the undead. Claire Danvers and her friends are the only ones who stand in his way. But even if they defeat Bishop, will the vampires ever be content to go back to the old rules, after having such a taste of power?

Well obviously this series prolongs but to me i had a closure at book 6. All of these books were so amazing! The suspense was torture but the author still managed to fill in some need. Each book after the other was a masterpiece and i recommend this book to people 13+ ! Obviously for some intimacy and a bit of gruesome stuff, i mean it is vampires after all we’re dealing with !

5 out 5 stars ! ❤ READ READ READ

The Hollow by Verday Jessica

When Abbey’s best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead?and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen’s funeral, and keeps reappearing in Abbey’s life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he’s the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again…but also special.

Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen’s betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her—one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity.

 

This book was horrible! It only got interesting in the last 10 pages. I mean gosh! For 95% of the book all it talks about is her perfume obsession, getting bullied and how much she was “so in love with Caspian(some mysterious guy) So retarded! You’d have no idea it’s a ghost story till the ending. Horrible writing! And their was no ‘suspense’ just crap. The only time they mentions ghosts through the 95% of the book was when they were talking about some kinda headman horse rider.. idk something like that . i don’t care.
Do not waste your time buying this book, try lending it from someone. I’m happy that’s what i did or else i would’ve been pissed!
2 out of 5 stars and those only because of the ending!

Captivate By Carrie Jones

Zara and her friends knew they hadn’t solved the pixie problem for good.

..Far from it.

The king’s needs grow deeper every day he’s stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. 
It’s made him vulnerable. 
And now there’s a new king in town. 
A turf war is imminent, since the new pixie king, Astley, is moving in quickly. 
Nick nearly killed him in the woods on day one, but Zara came to his rescue. 
Astley swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he’s one of the good guys. 
Nick isn’t buying it, though Zara isn’t as sure — despite herself, she wants to trust the new king. 
But it’s a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It’s her life — and his.

OMG, I loved this book!. Finished it in a day! Not one boring part, and the main character is just awesome. Jeez. Zara would do anything to keep her wolfboy safe and when i say anything i mean anything. If you’ve read the first book already, you know what I’m talking about.I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one. I reccomend that EVERYONE reads this series!!!!

The Replacement By Brenna Yovanoff

Mackie Doyle is not one of us. Though he lives in the small town of Gentry, he comes from a world of tunnels and black murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattooed princess. He is a Replacement, left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now, because of fatal allergies to iron, blood, and consecrated ground, Mackie is fighting to survive in the human world. 

Mackie would give anything to live among us, to practice on his bass or spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tate’s baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably into the underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem. He must face the dark creatures of the Slag Heaps and find his rightful place, in our world, or theirs.

The book was nice. Basically about these weird creatures that lived off the fear/love of humans in a town called Gentry. Umm, the main character happened to be one of those replacements and he took a stand against their crap. I can't say much or else it would spoil it. I never got bored in this book and i fell in love with the characters. some of the content is really creepy though so if you know you can't handle blood and corpse people don't touch it. Also if your a strong believer in God and hate discrimination... be careful with this book.<br/>Really enjoyable for me though. EPIC!

The Mermaid’s Mirror By L.K Madigan

Lena has lived her whole life near the beach – walking for miles up and down the shore and breathing the salty air, swimming in the cold water, and watching the surfers rule the waves – the problem is, she’s spent her whole life just watching.

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Lena vows she will no longer watch from the sand: she will learn to surf.

But her father – a former surfer himself – refuses to allow her to take lessons. After a near drowning in his past, he can’t bear to let Lena take up the risky sport.  

Yet something lures Lena to the water … an ancient, powerful magic. One morning Lena catches sight of this magic: a beautiful woman – with a silvery tail.

Nothing will keep Lena from seeking the mermaid, not even the dangerous waves at Magic Crescent Cove.

And soon … what she sees in the mermaid’s mirror will change her life …

Wow this book was soooooo corny. I mean really? Who published this. The main character is just straight up kind of bitchy only thing i like about her is she stick up for what she wants. But other than that… the whole mermaid part was retarded. Not much to say on this book, its like a cheaper version to Little Mermaid MINUS castles and singing crabs and that sort. I hated this book, i only read it because i was bored.
1 out of 5 stars… only for a few interesting parts!

Paranormalcy By Kiersten White

Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.

But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal.

I’m not sure about this book, i mean i liked it and hated it. It was just . . . weird i guess. Different and original, props for that, corny and kinda stupid (compliments of the twilight series) but… it was okay i guess. I only read it because my best friend said it was awesome but despite its ‘awesomeness’ i couldn’t really stick my nose deep inside of it enough. The cover, is kind of stupid though, it’s boring and plain and has nothing to do with the book. Although this book didn’t really rock my boat i still have the urge to buy the second one, i guess i’ll buy it. Some of these characters were kick ass and i fell in love with them. Actually no, all of them were kick butt and i loved the book but it just wasn’t as awesome as i anticipated. you know what, just buy the book and you would understand what i’m saying, mixed feelings for it.. but it’s still a kick butt book… not incredible though!! remember.. kick.butt =)
3 out 5 stars..

Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech

Thirteen-year-old Salamanca Tree Hiddle’s mother has disappeared. While tracing her steps on a car trip from Ohio to Idaho with her grandparents, Salamanca tells a story to pass the time about a friend named Phoebe Winterbottom whose mother vanished and who received secret messages after her disappearance. One of them read, “Don’t judge a man until you have walked two moons in his moccasins.” Despite her father’s warning that she is “fishing in the air,” Salamanca hopes to bring her home. By drawing strength from her Native American ancestry, she is able to face the truth about her mother. Walk Two Moons won the 1995 Newbery Medal.

Okay so . . . this book wasn’t awesome, but it was okay. It had loving characters yet annoying ‘want to kill’ characters. Sometimes i got board, sometimes i was excited, sometimes i was happy, sometimes i was sad then at the ending i cried. Yes the book was different, but i guess i wasn’t fond at it because it wasn’t my genre. I usually like paranormal stuff i only read this out of boredom, almost immideatly when i started reading this book, i realised that it wasn’t for me.
3 out of 5 stars.
