Do not read this review as there is no way of talking about this book without ruining something. So you have been warned. And if you haven’t read the series please do because oh-my-god. 

After rescuing Tamlin from the wicked fairy queen, she returns to the Spring court possessing the powers and immortality as a High Fae.

But as her life as a human ended, Freyre has realised that she no longer wants the same things. She no longer wants to be a damsel in distress , she wants to be useful and help Tamlin rebuild what was broken. But will this bring them to the edge when Tamlin demands she never leave the house and is constantly watched. She can feel the walls closing in and only the one week a month through her bargain with Rhysand seems to be the only freedom she now has.

Everything Everything, By Nicola Yoon.

I read this book from page to page in one day during my holiday in Spain. I took two books thinking that would be enough and I finished them both within a space of the flight there and then my first day sunbathing. I loved this book. The cute little diary illustrations and drawings really gave it an unique effect. It was so easy to read. I breezed through this book. Yoon’s writing style is so up my street. It was funny, sweet and just filled with love and the sexual tension!! Yeesh! Everything about it just made me swoon and just fall back in love with love stories.  Continue reading

A Court of thorns and Roses By Sarah J. Maas, Book Review.

A Court of thorns and roses A-court-of-thorns-and-roses-book-cover. By Sarah J. Maas

two-stars_0  Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …  Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever. Okay I’m going to go right out and just say it. This book was really hard to get through. The writing was at a snail’s pace and the only thing that got me through it was my sheer desperation to know what would happen between the romance and love and passion that Tamlin and Feyre have. It took me five weeks… FIVE weeks to finish this book. When it should have taken me one. I just could not get myself to keep on reading the damn book.  Continue reading

The Gender Secret

By Bella Forrest 

Book two of the adrenaline packed book series about Violet Bates and her torturous struggle on trying to reunite with her little brother. I actually preferred this book romance wise a lot more than the first one. Because as you all may know by now, I love a book with a good romantic line. But I also loved how Forrest made the book flow and did not circle the new romance as the main plot of the story. This book was sort of a bridge to get to the third book. We need to know all of this information as it must be important for the next part of the series, so it can get a bit dragged near the end but pay attention, I’m sure it was all important. Now I did have a few things that I did not like about this second book but I am willing to look past on just because the story is so damn good but I will mention it in the review. Continue reading

Book review of Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Book review of Shiver By Maggie Stiefvaterfour-stars_02

shiver-book-cover-books-to-read-10394812-262-400In a town called Mercy Falls, is where the main character named Grace lives. Grace has watched the wolves in the forest that backs onto her garden for years. One yellow eyed wolf, her wolf is haunting her life that she can’t seem to live without. It becomes an obsession and a love of the wolves in the town. When a young boy is killed by the wolf pack, the town members decide to hunt the wolves once and for all. When an injured boy called Sam appears in her garden Graces world id turned upside-down. Sam has yellow eyes like her wolf and even resembles the wolf she adores. Is this a coincidence or is it fate?

The first time I read this book I was an emotional 16 year old in desperate need for a fantasy escape, and this book delivered. Reading it again at age 22, I thoroughly enjoyed it if possible, even more. I appreciated the writing even more, the story, the love, the magic! There’s something about this book that makes it a read without fault for the winter. Just snuggled up with a blanket and some tea with this book was just the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

This dark romance is a perfect read at this time of year. I’d recommend any girl ages 13 and over to read this. With two more books to follow after it, I look forward to reading what adventure lies for Sam and Grace next and will their love last?

Journey of Souls By Michael Newton.

My Review of: Journey of souls by Michael Newton Ph.D.

My Rating: four-stars_02

104979.jpgI can sum this book up in one word: interesting. It takes a look behind the curtain of death and rebirth. We’ve all heard the stories about near death experiences where the spirit hovers above the body of the deceased and then drifts through a tunnel toward a bright light where they see relatives who preceded them in death. Typically that is all we learn. This book tells the rest of the story.

It goes into depth with Mr Newton’s study with the theory of reincarnation, afterlife and the possibility of the existence of the soul. This book was given to me as a gift and he ins
isted that I read it. I must admit that it was put down and forgotten on multiple occasions, however, It is one of the most intriguing books I have ever read. The writing style- considering the context keeps you interested. In the book I didn’t get bored or finding my thoughts drifting to other things.

I would even go as far as saying its enlightening. His evidence of the possibility of afterlife seems plausible and i would definitely recommend this to the curious and open minded. 🙂
