Wicked Woods(#1) by Kailin Gow book review

 Wow This was a really good book even though I didn't expect it to be(given that until this book cover caught my eye I was completely unaware of Kailin Gow's work) *stupid me I know* but this was a very good read and I actually found  most of the characters very refreshing! Especially the MC(main character). The-whole-she-was-the-queen-bee-at-her-school- thing and now she's just mellow thing was a surprise that showed how 2 dimensional she is as character. And what a name! Briony. Doesn't that just rolls off of the tongue! And wow how creepy was the name of the town. Wicked Woods ,MA . Gow just knew what she was doing by picking that town, so creepy that before the story even began or before you even read any review or pieces of the story that you just knew something creepy was going to be going on here. Hmm... the two supporting friends Maisey and Steve could have kept me more entertained though and Claire and Tracey was a bit flat, Pepper who has a name like that? But those are all minor details that since those characters didn't make to much of an appearance in the story didn't really seem to bother me that much.
They made you wonder but not too.  Come to think of it Gow could have done more with the characters of Kevin and Fallon and when I found out that F was a vampire I thought this was going to turn into a Twilight sort of thing but just with a younger version of Bella that is a slayer which would had been a-ok in my book!  Hmm what else should I mention? *thinking* O h yes I love how Gow left the ending all good cliff hangerish. And I say good cliff hanger because I have read some books that left you with bad cliff hangers that made you want to go find the author and punch them in the face. *getting mad just thinking about it*.
Now since I liked this book so much and possibly can't think of anything else to ramble about then here it comes my personal rating system! *yea!* *throwing confetti right now*  For the characters I'm going to give a 6 out of 10 , why? Because even though the side characters weren't that interesting Gow focused her attention on the main characters(ones that made more than maybe a sometime appearance) and I think that's what really matters. The plot a 9 out of 10, why? Because the whole MC becoming a slayer thing was cool and unexpected. the setting/scenery a 10( wow no one has received that from me before!), why? Because the description of the different scenes and just the name of the town alone creep the sh*t out of me. And finally the overall experience a 9. And oh yes I will be reading what's next to come and any other Kailin Gow stuff I can get my ands on! Kailin Gow if you every read this you just made yourself another fan!

Crescendo(Hush,Hush 2) by Becca Fitzpatrick book review

Wow ok I I really didn't think that I was going to like this installment because of the way the last one ended but wow. Ok this one picks with Nora(N) & Patch(P) just enjoying the perks of a new relationship and all that and then wam! Here's come like this whole tornado of distrust. N tells P that she loves him and then all hell breaks loose literally! There this thing where P can't tell N that he loves her back because the archangels are now watching their every move and blah, blah, blah. I didn't(just like how I didn't like in the first one) like the way Fitzpatrick keeps you in the dark about everything! Like really everything! Then once again there's this whole everyone seems like they are trying to kill N thing going on sos you never know who to trust during the entire book. The only person that could be trusted is the MC(main character) becuase of course she's not out to kill herself, that would just be stupid!  Fitzpatrick please if you are out there reading this somewhere some how please give us something more I don't know stable.

Don't get me wrong I love a good mystery as much as the next person but when evryone is a susspect things getting alittle crazy. * that was a mouthful* *wiping sweat off of my forehead right now* Now as for the characters themselves no one has to improved at all! Everyone is exactly the same as they were in the first installment which to me is a little um... lazy. I think one of the main reasons people continue to follow a series is because you are dying to read what happens next and to see if any of the characters has I don't know grown up! Okay think about it like this: all of these character are like friends or just anyone that you haven't seen in a long time( I say long time because unless you don't have a life then I'm quite sure that you took a breather in between book 1 & book2, you probably went to work or school or went to go walk the dog or whatever) so when you finally catch up with these friends or coworkers or whatever you want to know if there's anything new happening in there life right? So by the characters improving from one book to another that kind there way of letting you know what's happening in there life. *another mouthful, wiping more sweat oof my forehead*.

Without more rambeliing I can say that Fitzpatrick did not delivery whatever the h*ll I just rambelled about. The plot was just like the character unchanging. so with all of that in mind I think it's time for my own personal whatever out of 10 stars ratings *yea!*  The characters I'm ging to give a 4 and a half stars out of 10 , I'm giving the half because while they were unchanged they still had enough zip to keep me entertained. The plot a 4 and half stars and the half is because just like the unchanged characters the plot(once you get pass the whole-everyone-wants-to-kill-Nora-thing) had enough zing to keep me reading it all the way into the wee hours of the morning. The scenery/setting a 3 because while Fitzppatrick dose describe where they are and what's going on I still found myself imagining something completely different than what was being described(I guess you can say I mad up my own scenery in my head when Fitzpatrick should have planted exactly what I was suppose to imagine there). And finally *dum-dum* *trumpets blaring* the overall experience which I will give a 5 out of 10 stars, why? Because although I had comlpaints I did enjoy reading it and am dying to get my hands on the third installement!

Entice(Need 3) by Carrie Jones book review

Ok yes I am a Carrie Jones fan and thought the whole idea of pixies was just a good change from the everyday vamp or werewolf story so I have to give her a big thumbs up for that but I thought the characters of this installment could of used some... I don't know some more something, just something felt missing from them that wasn't missing in the second installment . And when I say characters I mean everyone like the supporting characters , so everyone except for the main character which I like in this one but kind of didn't like in the second part of this series.
 Even though there was almost no phobia chanting in this one which I have come love not like but love because it gave the story(the first one) a creepy vibe. Just think about how scary the story seemed(even though in these types of stories things always seem to work out fine in the end and the leading girl character or boy character always seems to get their hot girl or guy and their happy ending) to be reading the first book in the dark with the MC(main character) chanting phobias every time the scene cuts to something that seems weird or creepy, it should creep the sh*t out of you if your a good story buff like myself.
 But any way the MC has really become a stronger person in this one and even sees that their is life outside of Nick Colt which by the way has bored me from the start as the hot/supernatural/love interest of the story. However I do love Astly(even though that's a weird name, it sounds like something that I would name a dog or maybe even a horse) as the hot/supernatural/mysterious/love interest. Good job on Astly Jones, please keep him around if you are considering a fourth book! Which by the way this book ended I think there should be a fourth if there's not one in the making because there was too many questions left unanswered with this ending.

Questions like: what will Nick thing of Z(Zara) when he wakes up and finds out that she's not just half pixie any more but whole and complete pixie?   Where the h*ll is Grandma Betty and is she going to be okay?   What will become of Astly and Z's relationship? And most importantly what the h*ll is going to be done about the bad pixies?!

Please Jones if you happen to ever come across this review please either answer these questions ion the fourth book or at least come close to answering these question because I'm dying to know!
Ok now that's out of the way now it's time for my personal rating system. *Yeah!*

As for the scenery/setting I give this book a 7 out of 10 stars because the way Jones describes things in the book never once had me wondering what the h*ll was she talking about and that's a good thing! The characters I will give a 5 out of 10 and that's only because the most important character(the main character) was very brave and interesting in this installment which since she is the main character she should be brave and interesting. The plot a 4 and a half stars out of 10 because I still didn't like the whole-let's risk every one's-life -just-to-save-one-boy-thing. And finally dum-din-dum * trumpets blowing* the overall experience of the book a 8 out of 10 stars because I did really enjoy reading this and at the end isn't that what it's all about anyway?

Misguided Angel(Blue Bloods 5) by Melissa de la Cruz book review

First off let me start off by saying that I love me some Melissa de la Cruz but what the hell was going on in this book? Ok the book picks up where the last one left off(as they all do)  with Shuyler and Jack running off  together to find the gate of promise so that they can keep Lucifer from slipping through it and pretty much causes hell but what I could understand with this book is why did de la Cruz decided to introduce a new character or more like two new characters this late in the series. It was a little weird especially since we only briefly meet one of the new characters in book 2! Yeah you are reading this right one of the new characters is someone that she only gave us a glimpse at in book 2! I was thinking to myself that wow I barely remembered this person and now they have like a whole few chapters to themselves, unbelievable!

 So anyways as for the rest of the charters I didn't care for Schuyler in this book because I thought she was just weak and I still hadn't forgiven her for hurting Oliver the way that she did in the um.. fourth book. Mimi was very good in this book because she has clearly evolved from the super rich b*tch that she always came off as and now she's more realistic. I can not comment on Bliss who was in books 1-4 but for whatever reason was not in this book. Why? I don't know but that dose go back to the whole side character from either book 2or 3 becomes a main character thing that I have already mentioned. It was a pity that she wasn't in this one because   her dealing with the fact that she's not a vampire any more which I don't even know how that is possible  would have made for an interesting read.
 Jack was just as boring as he always is in all of the books. There was no Dylan because if you read the fourth one he is dead which didn't make sense because he was killed with another angel's sword which is what Bliss plunged into her own chest but lives and he doesn't. The character that gets the award for biggest come out is Oliver, why? Because he really to me came out the role as side character and became a full on character in this book. Now its onto my special personal ratings.  For the setting I gave this book a 5 out of 10 stars because de la Cruz described the scenery well enough to make me think that I was there. The characters9the ones that where in the book at least) a 4 out of 10 because even though I didn't like the fact this side character from an earlier installment was a surprise and kind took the book over as her own was still entertaining. The plot a 3 out of 10 only because I felt that a lot of time was waisted on unimportant stuff and the overall experience a 8 out of 10 only because even with some of the things that I found wrong with it it was still a read that kept you on the edge of your seat.

Captivate by Carrie Jones book review

        I am a big fan of Jones work but this book was a little weird for me. Weird as in where the hell did all this Norse mythology come from?! Norse mythology like a whole lot of it through out the entire book, like really?! And what happened to the main character Zara reciting  phobias  that was the good creepy factor of the first book that I liked and was disappointed that it wasn't in this book. However if I can guess what Jones was going for with that I would have to say is that she wanted to showcase a more mature Zara. The whole Nick being taken by a Valkyrie was so unexpected that it was almost just stupid but stupid enough to work so I guess it made for an interesting read.I liked Izzy and the rest of the characters in this one they all seemed to have grown I guess? So since I have such mixed feelings on this one I'm just going to go ahead give it my personal rating. For the setting I give it 4 out of 10 stars because the setting didn't seem as creepy as the first book which was a good creepy. The characters a 5 out of 10 because they did show that they have grown, the plot a 4 out of 10 because I hated the whole Zara dose anything to try and rescue Nick thing and the over all book experience a 6 out of 10 stars. Would I read anything else from Jones the answer is a hundred percent yes.
