What I really want to read.... :)

I have quite a few books that I really wish to read! One of which is Michelle Warren's 'Wander Dust'!

Here's the blurb!
"Ever since her sixteenth birthday, strange things keep happening to Seraphina Parrish.

The Lady in Black… burns Sera’s memories.

Unexplainable Premonitions… catapult her to other cities.

The Grungy Gang… wants to kill her.

And a beautiful, mysterious boy… stalks her.

But when Sera moves to Chicago, and her aunt reveals their family connection to a centuries old, secret society, she is immediately thrust into an unbelievable fantasy world, leading her on a quest to unravel the mysteries that plague her. In the end, their meanings crash into an epic struggle of loyalty and betrayal, and she’ll be forced to choose between the boy who has stolen her heart and the thing she desires most.

Wander Dust is the breathtaking fantasy that will catapult you through a story of time, adventure, and love."

Okay, so I really just have to read this soon! It looks like an amazing book, and the author is a lovely person!

Review for 'Unearthly' by Cynthia Hand

Unearthly (Unearthly #1)Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had picked this book up multiple times at Waterstones, but found myself putting it back on the shelf again. However, I decided to take the plunge and buy it anyway. My Gosh! Was I surprised or what! I found myself glued to the pages, lapping up every word. The story flowed tremendously beautifully and by the time I looked up, I was already half the way through.

The main character, Clara, is not your typical teenager. She is a Quartarious, a quarter angel. What I loved about this book is that it is not your typical boy-angel-meets-human-girl-fall-in-love story. Clara is part angel and has a mysterious hint of her ‘purpose,’ through the means of a mysterious and recurring vision. She believes she is the one to save the mysterious boy from a disastrous forest fire. All of the characters are easy to like and they help the story to develop quickly.

Overall, I loved every minute spent reading this book. The plot was amazing, the characters were very well developed and honestly, this is one of my favourite angel books so far! It is a definite read. I’d recommend it to any angel lover.

5 out of 5!

Review for 'Haunted' by Willow Cross...

HauntedHaunted by Willow Cross

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

‘Haunted’ by Willow Cross, is a short collection of 100% true ghost stories from her life experiences. After reading all of Willow’s other books so far, I couldn’t wait to pick this one up and have a read. The book was short, and this made it an easy, quick and fun read, one that I thoroughly enjoyed!

How unbelievable is this? Willow moving into not one, but FOUR haunted houses! Willow, you are one awesome ghost magnet!

It was brilliant to read all of the experiences with the supernatural. I am amazed how brave Willow was, but she portrays how scary these encounters were. My favourite story has to be the ‘Blue Girl!’ I think that the fact that these are 100% true ghost stories, this makes them more scary and unnerving!

I would definitely recommend this book to any lover of the supernatural and paranormal genre and would with no hesitation give this five out of five stars!

Last Breath by Rachel Caine Review...

Last Breath (The Morganville Vampires, #11)Last Breath by Rachel Caine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

‘Last Breath’ by Rachel Caine is the eleventh book in the Morganville Vampire Series. Oh My. I have too many thoughts to describe how amazing it was! I absolutely love how Ms Caine can create such a real world with this series. They are each exciting, romantic, dramatic with suspense lurking around every corner. I was anticipating reading this book after Bite Club, as it left me hanging, and truthfully, I couldn’t put this book down (hence the finishing it in less than one day!)

The plot and storyline was exciting and action-packed. I found myself tearing through the book in a speed unknown to man! Before reading Last Breath, I was incredibly worried about what the title suggested. That twist was a twist and a half! I had not seen it coming, not for a second! One thing, you will be so surprised that your mouths with hang open, just like mine did! I love the characters, Eve, Shane, Claire and Michael, as they each have individual defining qualities that make them unique and able to relate. One of my favourite characters, Myrnin, never fails to make me smile! He’s just one of a kind of crazy.

All in all, this book was not unsurprising, as there were elements imprinted within that made it an amazing read, a read that I would highly recommend to any lover of the paranormal! I would without a doubt give this book a massive 5 out of 5 stars!

Review for 'She Wasn't Allowed to Giggle' by Lavinia Thompson

She Wasn't Allowed to GiggleShe Wasn't Allowed to Giggle by Lavinia Thompson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

‘She Wasn’t Allowed to Giggle’ by Lavinia Thompson is an extremely personal insight into Thompson’s abusive past. The raw emotions that permeate this book are shown through each word she chooses. It is not sugarcoated, but left there for the reader to see. The poetry left me heartbroken for her, as I couldn’t possibly imagine what this could do to a person, but I was delighted, thoroughly exultant to witness her triumph over the darkness that had followed her. This was, without a doubt, a very personal book, one that must have taken extreme willpower to write. I salute her for her absolute bravery and determination. Times, this poetry is often dark and sad, but this turns into a strong confession, a strong ascension from the gloom.

Lavinia Thompson, I admire you inner strength.

Review for 'The Dark Gifts:Inheritance' by Willow Cross...

The Dark Gifts: Inheritance, is the second book in the series. I had been waiting ever so patiently (*cough cough*) for this book to reach my possession. By patiently, I mean not at all. I was highly anticipating reading this book as I had absolutely loved the first book in the series.

Firstly, I knew beforehand that it would not directly link to the previous book, and consequently it was not an overall surprise when I started reading it that it did not follow on. This, I feel, was a very clever technique, as it kept you wandering throughout how it would link, therefore keeping me, and everyone else, tagging along! The story flowed perfectly, and I found that I was never confused at what was happening in the story line. Nearing the end however, it is as though a light bulb had been switched on; you realize how the story links.

Inheritance features a brand new cast of characters. You find yourself travelling along on their rollercoaster of a journey for the newly discovered werewolves, brother and sister, Sarah and Jason, clinging to their every word, action and thought. They capture you. I love how each character have defining characteristics that are both admirable and charming. You witness these characters go through the unexpected and comprehend how they mature and handle certain situations. In their own ways, they become independent, responsible and admirable. To me, I found it easy to relate, identify even with them. The story was kept alive by these characters, as they breathed life into it, and made it more real in my mind. The characters helped the story to flow easily, as you become captivated, mixed in with their emotions. You feel the need to know what happens next, what’s in store for them!

I would, without a single doubt, give Inheritance a 5/5 (or can I say 10/5? Am I allowed? As I that’s what I feel it deserves!) It kept me reading until the very last page. I was enthralled with the storyline, characters and the plot, as it was an attention-grabbing read! I would thoroughly recommend this story to anyone of the lover of the paranormal, as incorporated within are witches, vampires, werewolves and more! Thank you so much Mrs. Willow! I thoroughly enjoyed reading your work. You are a highly talented writer and I can’t wait to see what is in store for the next novel (talk about a cliff-hanger!)!
