Scarlet by Marissa Meyer a review

Now I will admit. I didn't know that this one was going to be a Red Riding Hood story. So I was pleasantly surprised when I realized it as I started reading. I love the entertwining stories of Red's search for her Grandmother and Cinder's escape from Prison.

Requiem by Lauren Oliver a review

Now I devoured Delirium and Pandemonium as quickly as I got them. So when this book hit the bookshelves I knew I had to have it. I read it in under 3 hours. I really like the way Lauren Oliver writes. She brings the characters to life. This book is again about Lena and her trials in the Wilds. The other side of the book is all about Hana and her trials since Lena has left the civilized world.

Now I really liked the way she interwove both of our main characters to each be on one side of a different world.

I don't want to say too much because the ending of Pandemonium is unexpected and if I say much about the new book it gives away the other book. So all I will say is the story is well written. The only thing I didn't really like was the ending of the third book. It just wasn't to my taste. I liked the rest of the book though.

Wake by Amanda Hocking a review

So a friend of mine said that she loved this author and has multiple times talked about another series by her. But the other day I saw that this book was on sale on Amazon. I knew I had to pick it up and try it, especially since it's about Sirens. Love Sirens. Evil beautiful creatures to the sea.

The story is about a girl who feels a call to the water, and the 4 sirens that are looking to make her one of there own. It's an interesting story and I like the mythology that she added in to give them a backstory. It's well written. I just picked up the next in the series today and I can't wait to read it.

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver a review

Now I just dove right in and read Delirium and couldn't get enough. So I had to rush out and pick up the next in the series and now that Requiem is out I can't wait to get my hands on it. I have to know what happens next. I think Lauren Oliver is a really great story teller. You just want to know what is happening next, you get sucked into her stories.

This series is being made into a tv show and I am ecstatic. It focuses on our main character Lena who has escaped the civilized world and made it into the wilds, where life is hard but we are free to love. This follows her struggles after losing her lover in the escape.

I really liked the story, the twists and turns, the character development and the way that she seamlessly weaves a story of love, loss and hope.

Dark Summer (#1, Witchling Series)

A school for Witchlings... The ultimate choice between Light and Dark... Where the price of a your soul. Sixteen-year-old Summer doesn’t expect her new boarding school to be any different than the rest: a temporary stay, until her uncontrollable magic gets her thrown out again. In her mind, there’s no point in getting too friendly with anyone. That is, until she notices Decker, the boy who will become the Master of Night and Fire on his eighteenth birthday. When she learns that this special school has attracted others with magic in their blood, she is hopeful that this time around, things may be different. Besides, she can’t deny her interest in Decker, and when he rescues her one night from the dark forests of the Rocky Mountains, their connection is instant. Yet a relationship with Decker may prove to be Summer’s downfall, forcing her to choose between Light and Dark, life and death, love – and their souls. One choice. One soul. One price.
