Fallen Book Review

Fallen by Lauren Kate

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book! The cover is gorgeous! The story is about a girl, Luce, who sees these dark shadows who hurt people and when she can't explain it she is sent to reform school. There she meets two guys and both are extremely handsome. Daniel is distant and cold and pushes her away while Cam is smooth and shows his interest in her. I love how through most of the book think you know who the good guys are but you really are not sure. It also leaves a lot that has to be explained in the sequel. This book will have you hooked. I loved it and can't wait for Torment, book 2, coming out September 2010.

Beautiful Creatures Review

Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1)

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I read this book over the Christmas break and I really wanted to love it but I only ended up liking it. Some of my favorite authors wrote great blurbs on the back of the book. The cover is gorgeous! I was really excited to get the book. When I started reading it I liked that the story was told from the boys point of view. Who by the way is normal no super powers. Also Lena is really cute and can see and the out of place new girl. I also liked the flashbacks and the use of genealogy. Now the problem I had was the ending was left open. I also felt like maybe they tried to cover a lot. I did like the setting and the supporting characters. Especially the aunts and boo. Over all I liked the book.

Let It Snow Book Review

Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances by John Green

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Let it Snow is a really fun read. The book is three stories that all happen during Christmas Eve and day. It all revolve around a small town that is snowed in and all the stories are connected by minor characters. The first story is Maureen Johnson's and I think her's was my favorite. Jubilee the main character is on her way to her grandparents when her train gets stuck in the snow. She decides to get off and walks to the waffle house where the story begins. The second story is John Green's story where three friends have an adventure. I found this one to be really cute and can see it turned into a movie. The third story is by Lauren Myracle who tells her story but also brings together the characters from the other two stories. I found this to be a fun holiday read.

Devil's Kiss Book Review

Devil's Kiss Devil's Kiss by Sarwat Chadda

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was hooked from the first few pages. The story is based on the Knights Templar who hunt all that is unholy. This means vamps, wolves, devils, and archangels. The story is told from Billi's point of view who is the only female member to be in the Knights Templar. The story is really exciting and action packed. Billi mother was murdered when she was five and has not had a normal childhood. Her father is the head of the Knights Templar and does not take it easy on her. Once I started this book I could not put it down. This is definitely a must read!

Shadowland (Immortal Series) Book Review

Shadowland (The Immortals, #3) Shadowland by Alyson Noel

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I was really looking forward to this book in hopes that everything would work out for Ever but it really didn't. I am also surprised because usually I am on the side of the first guy who she falls for and goes though all the good and bad with but this is not the case. I am rooting for the new guy. Also there is a lot of indecisive and bad decisions. I really don't like Haven who isn't much of a best friend. The one person who truly stole my heart in the series is her little sister Riley. Ahh how I loved her!

Blue Moon Book Review

Blue Moon (The Immortals, #2) Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
While I found this book to be really emotional and at times hard to read because of everything Ever goes though I must say I still enjoyed it. I just kept feeling my heart break for Ever because to have to live through such horrible things and only to find your soul mate for a brief moment and then loose him in a blink of an eye. This takes the meadow scene and 4 blank pages in New Moon and extends it through the whole book. I wanted to reach through the pages and to hug and cry with Ever. I think anyone who has gone though a bad break up or felt that high school was the hardest time of your life can relate to this book. Can I say that I completely HATE ROMAN! I only hope that Alyson Noel will give Ever some happiness in the next book.

Evermore Book Review

Evermore (The Immortals, #1) Evermore by Alyson Noel

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book had me hooked from the moment I picked it up. I read the book in a day because I couldn't put it down. My heart goes out to Ever, because she suffered so much. Oh my god I love her little sister Riley. The ending with Riley had me in tears. I love all the twist and turns and how your not sure if to trust Damen. Part of me wanted to hate him but then he does sweet random things and he pulls you back in. This was a great story and I loved it!

Girl Stays in the Picture Book Review

Girl Stays in the Picture Girl Stays in the Picture by Melissa de la Cruz

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book was so cute and a very fun read. Melissa gives us a view into the fabulous life of celebs and the papz who hound them. The story is told from 3 girls point of view Devon, a movie star, Casey, an assistant, and Oliva, a producers daughter. The girls all become friends and share fun adventures in Saint-Tropez. I love how some of the minor characters are so much like real celebrities. I can't wait for the follow up book to Girl Stays in the Picture.
