~Oooooh! books you have a new home!~

Image
My mom and dad decided to surprise me a couple of nights ago and brought me a shelf for my long suffered books that were always stacked on boxes but NO MORE! I love it even though it's not from wood and that BUT it's almost full so I know I'll be getting another one once we move out of this house... hopefully hopefully that'll be sooner rather than later :D Everything started out great... one cube at a time and stuff, as you can see in the pic we managed(WE meaning my sisters and I)to make the first cube perfectly nice and fast but after that everything went downhill hahaha it was fun don't worry.
So, of course I had to take out every printed book I owned and clean and order them... CHAOS!
After seeing this I couldn't believe I had this much books I drived myself crazy with happiness!

I tried, and failed, to count them :D

I arranged them

And re-arrange them tons of times to take pictures haha I couldn't stop staring at them.... haha sooo proud of my tiny but love…

~review~ Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

~...Fighting is easy. It's WHY we fight that matters...~

PLEASE PLEASE TELL ME THAT THE STORY ISN'T OVER!
I soooooooo thank my god in heaven that I read the series when all the books were out AND when there's a spinoff coming out just around the corner...

I can't even begin to tell you what a great series this is...and even though I don't like how some endings were a bit loose...now I won't complain because of Bloodlines and the next books to come...
Rose Hathaway has earned my complete respect for her, her personality, choices, craziness, and her utter ability to put those she loves the most first and before her.

I won't give you the complete detail list of all the amazing characters that Richelle introduced us to, and made us fall in love with...there are WAAAY TOO MANY though I still have my favorites...say, like, Mason, Abe, Christian, Jill, Sydney, a certain Romanian family...and soooo much more...
the characters that took my breath away weren't on…

~Review~ Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead

~ "Rose, I cheat at cards and buy liquor for minors. But I would never, ever force you into something you don't want..." ~ 
This is a book that kept me on edge since the beginning and might be the one where we FINALLY see the true nature of our heroine Rose

THOUGHTS :/ 

-What's with me and loooving the underdogs of books lately?
-Spirit ROCKS!
-Irritated soo many times because of a certain couple who proved to be extremely proud to admit their mistakes!
-Impressed by how selfish and self sentered this girl is...WOW I hated HER soooooo many times is not even funny... I trully was disappointed I didn't think that someone could be that reckless and take advantage of the love that people have for her.

FEELINGS 

This book shows you just how far someone is willing to go and sacrifice for love, forget the consequences, people who cares about you, even death...all of that is completely ignored when your heart is set and decided to love and save someone....

Answer me, How…

~Tiny Review~ Blood Promise by Richelle Mead

Image
~"You forgot my first lesson: Don't hesitate."~




Far away from home, having chosen love for friendship...if in Shadow Kiss I said Rose was strong in this book she's completely the opposite. We finally see her crack under that strong facade of hers.

Now she meeets blond/tattoo/formal Sydney, discovering a whole new side of the vampire world she didn't know.

Looking for someone to keep a promise and at the same time being chased by some unknown person, AND watching how she's loosing her best friend and possibly her home...can prove to be challenging.

Awesome new characters that takes us deeper into spirit element and its uses and others that prove to be kind of scary...

Will she be able to accomplish her goal before getting killed?
OR
Will she give up life as she knows it, feeling she no longer has a place to go, and let some special one AWAKEN her?

With an ending that took my breath away...

5/5

~Tiny Review~ Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

~ "We can't..." he told me.
"I know," I agreed.
Then his mouth was on mine again... ~


3rd book!

I'm sad and hate to tell you I almost gave up on this book, almost. The start for me was sooooooooo slow I really had to drag my eyes while reading again, almost, the first 100 pages and believe me that is NOT good for me!Until finally, finally! BOOM!!! things I didn't expect started happpening and well, there really isn't much more to say than after that I couldn't put it down.

Rose Hathaway seems to prove once again how strong a character she is, not just physically but emotionally as well.
In the mean time, new powers are discovered, lust is unleashed(at last), new loves arrive, threats to destroy morois as well as dhampirs over at the school appear, and the promises of better and possible futures are just THIS CLOSE TO BELIEVE.
With graduation just around the corner, tragedy strikes at St.Vladimir's and this time maybe not even Rose and her fr…

~"I don't think Miss Lynn'll let you be sick again. She hates you," she said.
"I know"
"No, she, like, REALLY hates you."
"No, I, like, really know. Trust me."~


Oh BLEEP!
What an amazing beginning to a really bleeping awesome book!
The very first chapter drew me completely in. With amazing Evie and her supper dupper of a boyfriend(want to know who he is? read the books guys!)

-CHARACTERS AND BOOK

The characters again delivered.
The really cuteness and strong character of Evie, even though real, was a bit shadowed by her constant change of moods, she was never entirely happy nor sad, let alone angry...she was always a ball of constant changing feelings.
Lend~swoons~ yu have no idea how much I love Lend, his character did buy me as much in this book as it did on Paranormalcy. He was completely everything I asked for and much, muc more.
The bad news though, are tht he doesn't take much of the stage in the story/plot of this book. I felt …

~Review-Thoughts~ Between the Lines by Tammara Webber

~If I met you last night, and brought you back to my place, or followed you to yours, and we had sex, that's what we asked for from each other. It's what I got, and what you got. I don't know you. You don't know me. Thanks for playing, and we're done. If by some fluke anything was said at some point during this entire exchange that made me curious enough to see you again, I would.
Has that happened before? A couple of times. Did it last? Clearly, no.~


Sorry that the starting quote was a bit long...but it really was one of my favorites...
May we all applaud to Tammara Webber and her beautiful piece of art that she delievered on publishing such an amazing book?!

I think this is one of a few series of books in wich I love exactly ALL THE CHARACTERS...even the ones that are supposed to be either, the mean guy or girl, Emma, Reid, Graham, Brooke, Tadd and oh so many more...
A book that's set on the set, lol, of a movie in progress...where the hot guy is obviously a celeb…

~Review~ Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

~ Slowly, he reached out and held a lock of my hair, twisting it around one finger thoughtfully. I froze...~

Well, hello there vampire book friend!
Wow, this book wasn't what I expected at all. Richelle did manage to surprise me!

This book starts out right with action, continues with action, and ends with action. I'm really sorry I didn't read it earlier.

I loved how all the characters no matter who, played a really important role on the developement of the story. Wich just earned Richelle some really good extra points.

On with my rambling thoughts...

Apart from the awesomeness of Rose, we have, of course, all the...let's say cool names; from Moroi to Dhampir and so on...

Rose, I loved. She's such an amazing and fresh character. I've never read of a girl such as her, NEVER. Maybe guys protecting the girl of their dreams. But Rose is so different and had me immediately immersed on the story. Completely exceeded my expectations of her.
Lissa! I couldn't even pronounc…

~Review~ Tiger's Curse

~He then put both hands on the door on either side of my head and leaned in close, pinning me against it. I trembled like a downy rabbit caught in the clutches of a wolf. The wolf came closer. He bent his head and began nuzzling my cheek. The problem was…I wanted the wolf to devour me.~

Even though I loved the book, sometimes I felt that the author didn't want to leave anything out from it and tried to squeeze into the book as much information as possible. I often found myself confused and overwhelmed with all the in-between stories, theories, legends, info, beliefs, gods, goddesses, and tiny little details she put on whenever she could.
Kells, sometimes...really just sometimes acted too immature for her age...but still is not just bad stuff.

I loved the change of setting the author chose for her book, the back story of Kells, isn't what I expected.

And even if the story did develop kind of slowly...I liked the last third of the book just right...(haven't been able to complete…
