Review: The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead

The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3)The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3) by Richelle Mead
Release Date: February 12th, 2013
Publisher: Razorbill
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 401
Source: Library
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she finds herself struggling to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch--a former Alchemist who escaped against all odds, and is now on the run. Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as she searches for an evil magic user targeting powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood--or else she might be next.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, the Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive—this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone’s out for blood.
(Add on Goodreads)

The third book of the Bloodlines series starts off a couple of weeks after The Golden Lily, with Sydney trying to remain in a friendship status with Adrian (why?!) . While also locating the mysterious rogue alchemist: Marcus and fighting the danger of  Ms. Terwilliger's powerful witch sister.

I loved this book! I'm pretty sure that I read the whole thing with a huge smile on my face like an idiot, especially any parts with Adrian and Sydney together. If you've read the first two books in the series (which I recommend) than of course your going to love this book like I did.

I feel like the characters are really what makes this book for me.  I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing Sydney grow since The Vampire Academy books, shes just one of those easy to love characters. She's smart without being annoying,  and doesn't make dumb decisions or fawn nonsensically over a boy but shes still imperfect in a way that makes her relatable. Ah.. Adrian I wanted to  just tell him to forget about Sydney and come be with me, HA! But no, you have to be blind to not see that they're meant for each other. The fun banter between them brings both comic relief but also adds to their likability. I even love the minor characters; Jill and Eddie always make me smile, I really hope that they end up together by the end of the book. The only person I didn't like was Marcus, I know that he had a actual purpose in the story but I couldn't help but feel that he was dull and a little out of place in the book.

I won't say anything to spoil the ending but I will say it was a huge shocker that left me wanting to jump write into the book.

The Bloodlines world, although obviously fantasy, is written in a way that makes it seem very real. When I'm reading a book I usually see it as movie in my head, and Mead's writing style makes that easier with vivid plot and character descriptions. I also really like that Richelle Mead isn't bothering with a love triangle at this point because it gets so overplayed in teen literature. My only real plot negative is that at some points the story gets a bit slow but it's not in a way that obvious or bothersome.

My Final Thoughts:

To anyone who loves magic, vampires or just a really good book, I totally recommend The Indigo Spell. But read Bloodlines and The Golden Lily first! Adrian and Sydney's believable and sweet relationship will please romance fans but the incorporation of magic brings in some action as well. I can't wait for the next book: The Fiery Heart

Happy Reading,

Awakened by Kriston Johnson Book Blitz: Teaser + Giveaway

Awakened(The Legends of Elyndia #1) by Kriston Johnson
Publication Date: April 25th, 2013
Genre: YA Fantasy
Where to Buy: Amazon

Can fighting for the right side be the wrong thing to do?

Draven, the tyrant ruler of Elyndia for the last one thousand years, searches for the one who can fulfill his prophecy.

The Paladins, an elite band of warriors sworn to protect their way of life at all cost, search for the one with the ability to bring their world crumbling down.

An innocent girl, tormented by demons only she can see, lives on the brink of insanity and longs for a life of peace.

When seventeen-year-old Jade Rosenberg reads from an antique book, she has no idea she just read an incantation awaking her inherited power. But when opposing—and equally terrifying—groups invade her home, she learns she is descended from an enchanted realm and a member of a powerful race thought to have been hunted to extinction.

Ripped from her world, Jade is forced to seek refuge from those who want her dead. She is given one of two options and the time has come for her to make a choice: assassinate their sworn enemy…

Or sacrifice her soul. (Goodreads)

"Leaning over Jade, Gabriel dropped to one knee, putting one hand behind her head and bringing his face within inches of hers. Jade could feel his warm breath on her cheek and the cold, hard blade of a knife pressed against her throat. Killing Jade was his original mission, and she guessed he was ready to make good on that promise. Maggie told her to trust him, but he obviously had second thoughts about helping her."

Kriston Johnson lives in Southwest Washington with her husband, teenage son, and miniature Australian Shepherd. Her home rests at the fringe of an old growth forest that she insists is the home of Jason Voorhees. Her husband thinks that’s a ridiculous assumption, because everyone knows it’s really Bigfoot. Every summer Kriston participates in the annual pilgrimage to Faerieworlds, a real life faerie realm here on Earth, and has an unhealthy obsession with Star Wars, The Vampire Diaries, and Iron Man. Awakened is her first novel. You can visit her on these sites:

After a devastating war between humanity and Faerie, Liza’s world was forever changed. Plants and trees became aggressive, seeking to root in living flesh and bone, and newborn children were discovered to have magic powers. Liza was one of these children, and with her abilities she brought her mother back from the ruined Faerie realm and restored the seasons to her own.

Now there are signs of a new sickness in the forest. Piles of ash are found where living creatures once stood. Liza investigates and discovers the Faerie realm has continued to deteriorate, slowly turning to dust, and that its fate is inexorably linked to that of the human realm. To find a solution, Liza must risk crossing over, putting herself and all she cares about at risk. Will Liza be forced to sacrifice her life and the lives of her friends in order to save both worlds?

Here is the exciting conclusion to the Bones of Faerie trilogy, for fans of dark fantasy and dystopian adventure entranced by Janni Lee Simner’s unique vision of a magic-infused post apocalyptic world.

Why I'm Waiting:

Ugh, I love these books. The dystopian setting, the characters, the story, my only complaint is that it takes too long for these books to come out.  I'm sad that this trilogy is ending, I fell like all my favorite series are ending this year actually.

Top Ten Tuesday #2: Books I Thought I Would Like More/Less Than I Did

Top Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the people at The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks theme is top ten books I thought I'd like More/Less than I did.

(More) = Did not like this book as much as I though I would
(Less) = Loved these books more than I thought I would
Sorry, kinda confusing I know.

1. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (More) - I'm not saying that I didn't like this book because I did like the book. But when it came out there was so much hype around it, that I thought I was going to enjoy more than I did. 

2. The Gallagher Girls Series by Ally Carter (Less) - I had read Heist Society before I read these books so I thought that The Gallagher Girls series would not be as good but I ended up loving it even more than Heist Society.

3. Morganville Vampire Series by Rachel Caine (Less) - I talk about these books a lot but that's because they are so good. Before I had read it I thought that I wouldn't like the books because I did not like the covers. 

4. Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead (Less) - I don't usually like spin-offs but I love the series and its characters.

5. Every House of Night by P.C and Kristin Cast book after Hunted (More) -  I loved
 the House of Night books (#1-5) but after that... I couldn't even finish the books.

    6.  The Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater (More) - Another one of those books that had a lot of hype, but in my opinion did not really live up to it.

7.  The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare (Less) - I still like The Mortal Instruments a little bit more but I really liked this series. Unfortunately I still haven't read the third book yet.

      8. Gone Series by Michael Grant (Less) - I don't remember why I didn't think that I would  like it, but it was way better than my expectations.

9. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins (Less) - I saw this book in my library for a long time before I actually read it. But really liked it.

     10. The Body Finder Series by Kimberly Derting (Less) - These books are just awesome, what else can I say?

What books have you guys read that were below or exceeded your expectations?

Review: Endlessly by Kiersten White

Endlessly (Paranormalcy, #3)Endlessly (Paranormalcy #3) by Kiersten White
Release Date: July 24th, 2012
Publisher: HarperTeen
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 385
Source: Library
Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Evie's paranormal past keeps coming back to haunt her. A new director at the International Paranormal Containment Agency wants to drag her back to headquarters. The Dark Faerie Queen is torturing humans in her poisonous realm. And supernatural creatures keep insisting that Evie is the only one who can save them from a mysterious, perilous fate.
The clock is ticking on the entire paranormal world. And its fate rests solely in Evie's hands. (Add on Goodreads) 


Let me start off by saying that I don't like leaving negative comments on books. But I feel that I have a certain duty to be honest, and honestly I didn't like this book.

Lets start with the characters. I could not stand Evie in this book. In the first two of the series I had always found her attitude and sarcasm funny. But this time around she just seemed mouthy(and not in a good way) and selfish. She was always complaining about how the paranormals were trying to use her , but it wasn't like she was trying to help anyone on her own. I think Reth said it best in this quote,
"When your[Evie]happy, you don't do anything! If you are content, the rest of the world and those who need you fall away into the background," from the book. 
I understand that it's pretty normal for teens to be selfish, after all I am one, but it got to the point where it made it hard to empathize with her.

The rest of the characters were just bland. Lend, Arianna and Raquel were boring and I've already forgotten about the rest of the characters. The only one I liked was Reth, even though I think readers were supposed to see him as a jerk but he was the only person(or faerie)that I found even remotely interesting.

I find it hard to explain the plot because there was so much going on. It was like three story lines in one. It went from trying to save IPCA from corruption, to saving Lend, to opening the gate for the paranormals, to saving Raquel and back to trying to open the gate. And I can't help but feel that I am leaving out something...

Anyway I really wanted to like this book but I just couldn't. Whatever I liked about the first book I did not find in Endlessly. The only reason why I didn't leave this book unfinished because once I start a series or trilogy that I have to finish it. I will say that I still like Kiersten Whites writing style and will continue to read books of hers in the future.

Final Thoughts:

The plot was too over crowded and the characters to either too boring or annoying.

Waiting on Wednesday #1: School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins

        Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme/event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's basically showcasing what book bloggers are looking foreword to. This week I am waiting on:

School Spirits (School Spirits, #1)
School Spirits (School Spirits #1) by Rachel  Hawkins
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Expected Release Date: May 14th, 2013

Fifteen-year-old Izzy Brannick was trained to fight monsters. For centuries, her family has hunted magical creatures. But when Izzy’s older sister vanishes without a trace while on a job, Izzy's mom decides they need to take a break.

Izzy and her mom move to a new town, but they soon discover it’s not as normal as it appears. A series of hauntings has been plaguing the local high school, and Izzy is determined to prove her worth and investigate. But assuming the guise of an average teenager is easier said than done. For a tough girl who's always been on her own, it’s strange to suddenly make friends and maybe even have a crush.

Can Izzy trust her new friends to help find the secret behind the hauntings before more people get hurt?

Rachel Hawkins' delightful spin-off brings the same wit and charm as the New York Times best-selling Hex Hall series. Get ready for more magic, mystery and romance!
(Add on Goodreads)

Why I'm Waiting:

I loved Rachel's other series Hex Hall and remember Izzy from the third book, so I'm excited to see her make the move from minor character to lead character.

Top Ten Tuesday #1: Rewind

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. This week is rewind week, so I got to go through all the past themes(and let me tell you theres a lot) and  I finally chose one I really liked. Favorite Book Characters. Characters have always been a deciding factor on whether or not I like a book, if I don't like the charaters then I won't like the book. So here are 10 of my favorites.

1. Alice Cullen from Twilight- Look I know there's a lot of hate behind Twilight and even I have to admit that it does not have the best writing but Alice will always remain one of my favorite characters. No matter what was happening in the book her bubbly personality always made me smile.

2. Claire Danvers from Morganville Vampires- If you don't already know, I love these books and a large part of that is due to my love for the main character Clarie. She's smart, resourceful and most imortantly does not need anyone else to protect her.

3. Adrian Ivashkov from Vampire Acadamy and Bloodlines- Not much to say on this one, just that I wish he was real....and my boyfriend.

4. Eve Rosser from Morganville Vampires- Gotta love Eve. She along with another character in the book are used fo comic relief so it's hard not to love a funny character.

5. Rebecca Baxter from Gallagher Girls- She's British and she kicks butt, 'nough said.       

6. Bryn from Raised by Wolves- She's one of the strongest characters i've read about, and she's willing to do anything to protect the people she loves.   

7. Tod Hudson from Soul Screamers- I just wanna say I was Team Tod from the very begining, not only is he hot but also charming and funny.

8. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games- I think all my favs are favs becuase they're tough in some way or another. This girl goes through so much and survives through all of it and all because of trying to save her sister.  

9. Clary Fray from The Mortal Instruments- Clary is awsome, although it sometimes gots on my nerves how much she obsesses over Jace, still all is foregiven. 

10. Jace Wayland from The Mortal Instruments- Ah, Jace the ultimate  tortured love interest. No matter how much I wanted to hate him sometimes his hilarious banter with Calry always got to me.

Who are some of your favorite characters?

Favorite Friday #1 (with GIFs!!!)

This weeks fav... drumroll please...
Drumroll LIGHTS

               The Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine

As far as I know everybody and their momma loves this series. And if you don't...


 Nothings perfect. Especially books, but The Morganville Vampires comes pretty close. It's got Action, Comedy, and Romance AND great characters. Wait.... Can one book have all that? 
You got it dude
You got it dude!
Thanks Michelle. I actually used to see it in the store and skip over it because I didn't like the books covers. I know. I know, your not supposed to choose a book by it's cover.

But then I saw the first book at the library and decided to give it a try because I didn't really have anything else to read. I actually didn't think I would even like it. When I started it I was like....

...and once I got to the cliff hanger ending...
...and once I found out the next book wasn't in the library...
Family Guy
.... and then I just kinda wanted to do this...
Family Guy Care Bear Suicide
Bear suicide is no joke people.

 Anyways, it's by the funnest series I've read. It brings a sort of comfort and joy that few books can accomplish. Heres one of my favorite qoutes.

Eve: "We nearly got killed over ice cream."
Shane: "Another thing I don't want on my tombstone."
Claire: "You have others?"
Shane: "*first finger* I thought it wasn't loaded. *second finger* Hand me a match so I can check the gas tank. *third finger* Killed over ice cream."

Summary: If you haven't read the series. It's about a 16-year-old girl named Claire Danvers who moves to Morganville, Texas to attend college (she graduated early). After a run in with some nasty bullies she moves in with, Shane, Eve and Michael the town misfits. She then then soon realizes that the town is run by vampires, and crazieness ensues. 
Gayr Busey Crazy
Ah... that's a different kind of crazy.... but you get it.

So, do I recommend this book?

Review: Illusions by Aprilynne Pike

Illusions (Wings #3) by Aprilynne Pike             
Release Date: May 3rd, 2011
Publisher: Harper Teen
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 375
Source: Library
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

"I don't do patrols, I don't go hunting, I just stick close to you. You live your life. I'll keep you safe," Tamani said, sweeping a lock of hair from her face. "Or die trying."

Laurel hasn't seen Tamani since she begged him to let her go last year. Though her heart still aches, Laurel is confident that David was the right choice.

But just as life is returning to normal, Laurel discovers that a hidden enemy lies in wait. Once again, Laurel must turn to Tamani to protect and guide her, for the danger that now threatens Avalon is one that no faerie thought would ever be possible. And for the first time, Laurel cannot be sure that her side will prevail
(Add on Goodreads).

In Illusions, the third installment of the Wings series, which takes place two years after the first book. Laurel finds that moving on in her relationship with David and her "normal" life may be a lot harder than she thought, when Tamani shows up to protect her, masquerading as a new student in her school. Also meaning that the danger that she thought she left behind when the leader of the trolls was murdered, is worse than ever.

If none of this makes sense then that probably means that you haven't read Wings or Spells the first two books in the series, which I definitely recommend.

I can't say much more about this book without giving it away, but readers will have to decide which characters are friend or foe. As much as I loved this book the lack of action was a little disappointing. However, all is foregiven due to the wonderful scenes with Tamani and Laurel.

The way that Pike writes the romance and chemistry between them is amazing, she really does a great job of allowing the reader to see Tamani's love for Laurel. Shown in this wonderful little snipit right here,

“So why are you here?"
He lifted his hands and made as if to lay them on her arms, but just before they touched he stopped and let them fall. Then, simply, as though it were all the explanation she could ever need, he said, "Because I love you (Goodreads)

Did you hear that sound... it was thousands of girls swooning. The romance in Illusions is actually the main draw for me, everything else pales in comparison. I don't even know what Laurel sees in  David. But if you are Team Tamani like me than you may find some hope in this book.

Final Thoughts:

Good book and a Great romance.

Happy Reading,

Can't Wait for Books #1

So yesturday I was looking at my "to read" section on Goodreads (which I believe is now up to 90) and there are just way to many books that I want to read but are taking forever to come out. So here are a few.

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea (Between, #1)Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea (Between #1) by April Genevieve Tucholke
Release Date: August 15th, 2013
Publisher: Dial
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 368

You stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand…

Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town…until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more? Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery...who makes you want to kiss back. Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.

Blending faded decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch

This is the first book in a series so I don't really have anything to go off of but the synopsis was enough to get  me hooked. So now everytime I look at the expected publication date it makes me want to cry to the heavens; WHY IS THIS BOOK NOT OUT YET!!!!!!

The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines, #4)The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines #4) by Richelle Mead
Release Date: November 19th, 2013
Publisher: Razorbill
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 416

In The Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her. . . .

But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there's still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure—and re-education—looms larger than ever.

Pulses will race throughout this thrilling fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe

I am in love with Richelle Mead and her books, ever since I read Vampire Academy I've been hooked (do I use that word a lot). I didn't even think that I would like Bloodlines because I usually don't like spin- off series but I might even like Sydney as a main character better than Rose. Anyway I am so excited to read this, I can't wait to see whats next for Sydney.

Fall of Night (The Morganville Vampires, #14)
Fall of Night (Morganville Vampire #14) by Rachel Caine
Release Date: May 7th, 2013
Publisher: New American Library
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 352

Thanks to its unique combination of human and vampire residents, Morganville, Texas, is a small college town with big-time problems. When student Claire Danvers gets the chance to experience life on the outside, she takes it. But Morganville isn’t the only town with vampire trouble...

Claire never thought she’d leave Morganville, but when she gets accepted into the graduate program at MIT, she can’t pass up the opportunity. Saying good-bye to her friends is bittersweet, especially since things are still raw and unsettled between Claire and her boyfriend, Shane.

Her new life at MIT is scary and exciting, but Morganville is never really far from Claire’s mind. Enrolled in a special advanced study program with Professor Irene Anderson, a former Morganville native, Claire is able to work on her machine, which is designed to cancel the mental abilities of vampires.

But when she begins testing her machine on live subjects, things quickly spiral out of control, and Claire starts to wonder whether leaving Morganville was the last mistake she’ll ever make...

Theres not many people I know that don't love this series, I mean it's on it's 14th book and Rachel Caine manages to still make it amazing. I jsut have to keep reminding myself; "one more month, one more month...."

Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy, #2)
Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy #2)
by Wendy Higgins
Release Date: April 30th, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 374

Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life (

I read the first book in the trilogy last December and have been waiting for this book ever since. I can't even explain how great I think these books are, luckily I only have to wait about 3 more weeks for it to come out.

Now that you've listened to me, what books are you excited for?

Review: Dark Summer by Lizzie Ford

Dark Summer (Witchling Trilogy, #1)Dark Summer (The Withling Series #1) by Lizzie Ford
Release Date: August 13th, 2012 
Publisher: GuerillaWordfare        
Format: ebook
Source: Amazon
Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

A girl with a broken past and a dark secret. A boy with a twisted future and no second chances. When they meet, it just might cost them their souls.

Sixteen-year-old Summer doesn’t expect the new boarding school to be any different than the rest: a temporary stay where everyone will turn against her after a few weeks. Until she meets the rest of the students at this special school and realizes she’s not the only one with magic in her blood. Accustomed to the concrete jungle of LA, she gets lost one night in the forests of the Rocky Mountains and meets Decker, the boy who will become the Master of Night and Fire on his eighteenth birthday. Their connection is instant and dangerous, for both will be forced to choose between Light and Dark, life and death, love – and their souls.

One choice. One soul. One price
(Add on Goodreads).

Ok I want to start by admiting my obsession with witch books. Ever since I read Bras & Broomsticks a couple of years ago I've had a special place in my heart for all books witchy.


Now if were looking at the book from just the point-of-view of being another YA fantasy then the book was fantastic. I was immediately pulled in by the synopsis on Goodreads, when decidining whether to buy it from Amazon. And I was not dissappointed. The main character was both realistic and relatable although sometimes a little naive, but I still loved her. Ms.Ford wrote a wonderful Romance between, Summer, the main character and  her love interest that I look forward to seeing grow as the series goes on. I don't want to spoil anything but will say that seeing Deckers charcater unfolding is one of the main draws for the book.

The only thing that I missed was the there could of been more magic in the book but I have a feeling that there will be much more to come in the rest of the series, which is why I can't wait.

Final Thoughts:

I liked it but would like a little more action and magic from my with books.

Happy Reading,

My love for anything about witches is what lead me to this book. Whats you favorite witch book? Please comment.

First Post!!!

This is my first post on a blog. EVER. And I wanted  to start by introducing myself and the website, so here we go.

 My name is Chloe Lee. I am 17-years-old girl, currently a Senior in High School and OBSESSED with books (and also fashion and music, but what teen girl isn't). I started getting into reading when I was in 7th grade when a girl who sat next to me introduced me to the Twilight series. Of course since then i have branched out to many other fantasy novels, YA being my favorite. I know that people have many different opinions about Twilight but good or bad that book is what has allowed me to immerse myself in myself into reading and stories and to really find a joy in it.

   Now I've started this blog because I am tired of reading all these books an having no one to talk too about them. On this blog I plan to mainly be reviewing the books that I am into at the time. Mostly of the YA genre. And I really hope this allows me a comfortable place to dicuss what I am reading with anyone who is interested.

Happy reading,
