In sfarsit am timp de citit! Asa cum v-am mai spus, mi-am propus ca vara asta sa citesc 50 de carti. Acum, daca asta o sa devina realitate depinde numai de mine. Deja weekend-ul asta am citit o carte. Ce carte? Una pe care am asteptat-o de mult timp! ‘Broken Wings’ de Cameo Renae, continuarea cartii ‘Hidden Wings’. Am asteptat cartea asta 5 sau 6 luni, dar a meritat. E geniala cartea, mi-a placut enorm! Seria devine din ce in ce mai buna cu fiecare carte!

Si Ethon… hell yeah! Dar stiti ce? Mai bine nu va mai zic nimic acum. Mai bine cititi recenzia mea care va veni pe 1 Iulie, ca sa intelegeti mai bine despre ce vorbesc.

Ce citesc acum? Eh, cine mai stie? Incerc sa incep ‘Chameleon’ de Kelly Oram, carte pe care o am pentru blog tour. Am citit vreo cateva pagini si pare interesanta. Sper sa imi placa. Nu va pot da prea multe detalii acum, pentru ca nici eu nu le am, din moment ce am citit doar 2 %. :))

For small-town rebel Dani Webber magic and monsters are no more real than the Easter Bunny… until the day she accidentally stops time. Dani quickly discovers that not only do supernaturals exist, but she herself is one of them. This is great news for her life-long best friend Russ, who can finally come clean about his own supernatural status and his undying love for her. Before the two can start to enjoy the long overdue relationship, Dani is taken by a powerful council of supernaturals who believe she is the Chosen One destined to save them from extinction. 

As if being kidnapped and expected to save the world isn’t bad enough, an ancient prophecy warns of the Chosen One’s dark nature: “Only the truest love will keep her an agent for good.” The council believes they know who this “true love” is and, unfortunately, that person isn’t Russ. The mysterious, powerful and devastatingly handsome Seer is the last person Dani wants in her life, but when she starts having visions of a horrific future, she has no one else to turn to for help. 

Soon Dani finds herself torn between two very different boys with two very different opinions of whom she can trust. With the visions getting worse and time running out, Dani is forced to put aside her feelings and work with both the Seer and Russ before an ancient evil is unleashed upon the earth.

Imi mai propun ca saptamana asta sa citesc ‘The End of Athens’ de Anthony Karakai , al treilea volum din ‘Oceans of Red’ de Willow Cross  si ‘Identified: The Maya Price Story’ de Faith A. Rice-Mills. Sper sa reusesc sa le citesc pe toate. 🙂

Voi ce cititi? Ce ati mai citit? 🙂

Short review: ‘Finding Alice’ by Andrea DiGiglio

finding alice

Review:

Thank you to Andrea for giving me the opportunity to read this book!

General Opinion: I loved this book, but I feel a little confused because of it. I felt like the author didn’t explain the supernatural world very clear. But the book is great, the story is amazing and the characters are great.
What made me wanna read the book: The blurb and the cover.
What I liked the most: The creativity behind this book. Even if this book is a book with angels, it’s very different from all the books I read, and this is what I liked the most. The story can be confusing and complicated,but it keeps you reading, searching for an answer to every question that you put while reading it.
Other great things: The characters. Though I didn’t feel like I knew them very well, they are weird (in a good way) and different and very strong. It’s like they are coming outside of the pages.
The book is a quick read, but it needs for more attention than usualy because the story is very tangled.
The end impressed me and I was a little shocked. I’m glad I’m finally reading the second volume, because I have ome unanswered questions!!
What I disliked: The confusion that I felt while reading it.I don’t know what made me feel that way, but it annoyed me a little.
Final Opinion: “Finding Alice” is a great book, with a nice world-building, with likable characters, but I think that the authors needs to provide her writing style. I’m reading the 2nd volume now and I think that it’s better. The series is very nice and if you are a Angels lover, you will love it!!!
I recommend it to: Fans of angels and paranormal.
Would I read it again: Though I liked it, I don’t think so.
Do I want to read the sequel: Yes. 🙂
Rate: 4 stars out of 5.

Blurb:

With Angels and Bounty Hunter’s in constant pursuit she finds protection within a group of Fallen Angels.

Review: “Obsidian” by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

Blurb:

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

My review:

“Obsidian” is that kind of book that is everywhere and everyone is talking about it. Even though I was curious, I said that I will not read it until I don’t have all the books in the series.I was afraid that I will become addicted to the series and I will have to wait too much for the next book.But at some point, at said “It’s enough, I have to read it.” So, I read it.

Well, this book was a great surprise. Though I heard everywhere that it’s amazing, I didn’t believe that it’s THAT great.But, even though I loved it, I can’t say that it’s one of my favorite. I loved it and I became a  fan of the author, but I don’t think it’s one of my favorite series ever.

Best thing in this book? The style-writing. I LOVED it. Jennifer L. Armentrout it’s a great author. Her writing it’s so fluent and so special and I am not sure how to describe it in the right way. I guess you have to read the book to see what I’m talking about.I loved her way of describing everything. I could feel and see everything like I was part of the book and I was seeing everthing from a corner. It’s obvious that Jennifer has a lot of writing skills.

The characters… WOW! Daemon is just…hot!So damn hot! He is one of the most amazing characters I’ve ever “met”. His sarcasm and irony made me laugh everytime he was around Katy.You can’t dislike him, he is just perfect! *Ilovehimbutshhhhh* Katy, well, I loved her too. I lied her because she runs a book blog, like I do. She loves books, like I do. And, well, she always knows what to say to Daemon. Oh my, they are so funny together! Their dialogues are so funny!! At one scene (the one with the ice cream, I think), I laughed so hard that I had cramps! I love them!

“Obsidian” hooked me from the start. When Daemon appeared in the scene, I knew that something is not normal about him. He was just too mysterious and everything about him screamed “Dangerous!Not normal! Hot!” and I was sooo intrigued by him that I kept turning the page,hoping that in the next page I will discover Daemon’s secret. I had to read more than half of the book to discover what it’s going on with Daemon and when I did, I was sooooo surprised! I expected Daemon to be a vampire, or a werewolf, or an angel or something, but not an… well, you’ll see. I’ve never read a book with those kind of creatures before, so , to me,  “Obsidian” is a very fresh and original series.

So, let’s recapitulate: the author is amazing, the characters are perfect, the story is original and kind of WOW! So, GO.AND.GET.THE.BOOK! You don’t know what you miss if you haven’t read it yet! It will gets you speechless!

After her dad’s death, Katy is heartbroken. She and her mom are moving to West Virginia to start it all over again. Katy isn’t expecting something too spectacular from this place. She just want an internet connection and books. But, she meets Daemon, her hot-and-kind-of-a-jerk-neighbor,  Daemon. He is the most amazing and hot guy Katy had ever seen. Also,something about him is dangerous, but Katy can’t figure out what it is. Even though Daemon is a jerk most of the time, Katy is attracted to him…

Our heroine gets along very well with Daemon’s sister, but Daemon keeps saying that Katy is not good for his sister and tries to separate them. Katy is confused, but she doesn’t want to let go of her friend.

Strange things happen when Daemon is around. He says and does things that Katy can’t understand or explain. At some point, she is sick of this whole “mysterious-guy” thing, so she descides that is time to figure out what is going on in front of her eyes. But when she figures what are Daemon and his sister, she also figures that she is in a big danger. Daemon, her sister and some other of their kind protect Katy, but is just that easy? Do you think that Katy will be safe and sound? Well, if you wanna know, read the book. J

“Obsidian” by Jennifer L. Armentrout is a book that has everything you need from a book: great action, hot characters, an amazing writing and mystery. I truly recommend it!

Da,bine,gata m-am linistit.A fost dragoste la prima vedere.Nu,stati linistiti,nu m-am indragostit de nimeni,dar m-am indragostit de o carte:”Awaken Me” de Emily Gossett.Ce coperta,ce descriere!!Va las sa vedeti cu ochii vostri:

After witnessing the horrific murder that was committed by her fiancée just days before their wedding, Aimee immediately flees from the life she knows. Lost in Greece, Aimee is inevitably and uncontrollably thrust into a supernatural world where she is terrified to learn what she really is. Crouching at every corner lies a new confusing memory that torments her from her previous life, while her feelings of love cease to die, but awaken more deeply for the mysteriously handsome stranger, who wants to rescue her. Battling the man, who she mistakenly still loves is a bigger conquest than imagined, but can she free her captured thoughts from the man who owns her? Facing the ultimate decision, to lose all humanity by becoming the weapon the Rogues desire most, or to destroy the creation of love. Can Aimee make the sacrifices needed to overcome deceit, love and her power that is irrepressibly blood thirsty?

Blestemul focului-Chloe Neill

Am primit aceasta carte de la libraria online Libris.Multumesc mult!

“Blestemul focului” este o carte care mi-a placut si care m-a lasat cu o multime de intrebari.Este genul de carte care la inceput te plictiseste ,dar la sfarsit te intriga si nu o mai poti lasa din mana.

Asa cum am zis mai sus,la inceput a fost plictisitoare,oricat mi-ar placea mie cartile cu scoli interesante.Si mi s-a parut plina de clisee.Dar dupa ce am trecut de jumatate,nu mi s-a mai parut chiar asa si am inceput sa ii vad adevarata “fata”.”Blestemul focului” este o carte fantasy VERITABILA.Cu magie,baieti frumosi(stiu,a cam devenit un element important in cartile fantasy) ,rau si bine.Si lupte.O,si era sa uit de secrete. J

Personajele au fost dementiale! 😡 Si foarte bine create,de spuneai ca exista cu adevarat.Iubesc chestia asta,cand un autor stie cum sa creeze personajele incat sa te faca sa le placi.Mi-a placut mult de Scout,care este foarte amuzanta si imi place mult stilul ei.De asemenea,Lily este personajul principal perfect: are moda in sange,nu se da batuta niciodata,este amuzanta,loiala si puternica.

De actiune..nu prea am ce sa va zic,pentru ca in prima jumatate a cam lipsit actiunea.De-abia dupa jumatatea cartii a inceput sa se “intrevada” niste actiune.Mi-am dorit actiune,am gasit actiune.Si actiune tipica fantasy.

Poveste nu e cine stie ce originala,dar personajele supranaturale sunt foarte originale.Nu am mai auzit pana la “Blestemul focului” de Seceratori.Bine,trebuie sa recunosc ca fiecare personaj fantastic a avut ceva caracteristic,creeat de Chloe Neill.

Finalul m-a lasat cu gura cascata,pentru ca s-au intamplat niste lucruri la care nu ma asteptam.De fapt,finalul face toata cartea.Parerea mea s-a schimbat dupa ce am citit finalul. J

Mi-a placut mult si pentru ca in ea exista o doza de sarcasm si de amuzament destul de mare.Si pentru asta si-a castigat o maaaaarrrrreeee bila alba.Mi-au placut mult schimburile de replici intre Scout si Lily,pentru ca mereu tineau sa faca bascalie una de alta.De asemenea,am ras cand vorbeau Michel si Scout.Amuzant mi s-a parut si faptul ca toti se strigau pe numele de familie.

Mi-a placut faptul ca actiunea e plasata in Chicago.Cred ca “Blestemul focului” este singura carte pe care am citit-o si a carei actiune este plasata in Chicago.Mi-a facut placere sa “intru” in tunelurile subterane a orasului Chicago,pe bune. J

Da,cred ca ar trebui sa nu ma mai lungesc atata cu vorba si sa va povestesc actiune,nu? Ok,daca insistati.:))

Viata lui Lily Parker pare obisnuita.Iubeste moda aproape la fel de mult cum isi iubeste parintii si cum o iubeste pe cea mai buna prietena a ei.Lily este mereu la moda,alaturi de prietena ei Ashley.Dar cand afla cu stupoare ca parintii ei se vor muta pentru o perioada de 2 ani in Germania,fetei ii pica cerul in cap.Ca parintii pleaca n-ar fi o problema foarte mare.Dar ca o trimit si pe ea in Chicago,la o scoala pretentioasa numita Sfanta Sofia,departe de Ashley si de New York,e chiar o problema mare.Fata pleaca fara nici un chef la scoala Sfanta Sofia si este intampinata de directoarea Foley,o doamna severa care mie mi-a dat impresia ca nu stie sa zambeasca niciodata.De asemenea,Lily este intampinata de mult strictete si de gasca Fitoaselor,niste fete nesuferite cu care Lily va avea ceva de furca,dar si de Scout,fata punk care ii va deveni cea mai buna prietena.Fetele se imprietenesc imediat ce se cunosc..dar oricat de mult ar incerca,Lily nu poate sa nu oberve disparitiile din miez de noapte ale prietenei sale.Scout pleaca in fiecare seara la “antrenament” si se intoarce dupa miezul noptii.Cand Lily o intreaba pe Scout ce se intampla,Scout nu vrea sa ii spuna.Asa ca in urmatoarea seara cand PPV-ul ( prietena pe viata) a lui Lily pleaca,fata o urmareste.Si descopera ca…Scout face ceva foarte periculos,dar inca nu stie exact ce.

Intr-o zi,in pauza de pranz,fetele ies la plimbare prin Chicago si ,la un momentdat,se intalnesc cu doi baieti: Michael si Jason.Michael pare sa o placa pe Scout,dar Scout nu prea da semne de aceleasi sentimente.Cei 3 vorbesc intr-un fel ciudat,iar Lily nu prea intelege,pentru ca vorbesc despre un subiect necunoscut ei …In fine,momentul trece,dar secretul ramane.

Intr-o seara,gasca Fitoaselor o ispiteste pe Lily intr-o camera de la subsol,spunandu-i ca o sa gaseasca tot felul de bunatati.Pentru ca Lily vrea sa se integreze,se duce si cade in capcana.Fetele o incuie pe Lily in camera,iar Lily trebuie acum sa gaseasca o cale de iesire.In camera se afla macheta in miniatura a orasului Chicago,cu toate turnurile lui.Lily,fiind desteapta ,iese din camera cu ajutorul unei chei ascunse intr-unul dintre turnurile machetei.Numai ca o ia pe drumul gresit si da nas in nas cu Scout ,Michael si Jason si al lor urmatoritor malefic.Cei 4 au parte de o batalie tipic fantasy.Lily is da seama de ce face prietena ei,dar intre timp este lovita de Blestemul Focului( de unde si numele cartii) si lesina.Se trezeste peste 12 ore la spital,cu Scout langa ea.Binenteles ca Lily ii cere explicatii,si de data asta le primeste.Michael,Jason si Scout ii spun ca ei fac parte dintr-un grup the adolescenti cu puteri magince,care trebuie sa ii invinga pe Seceratori(trebuie sa descoperiti singuri ce inseamna asta) iar Lily a fost o victima colaterala.

Dar credeti ca lucruri se termina aici?Nu,nu vreau eu sa va zic mai multe,e destul.

Lily Parker este trimisă de părinţii ei la o şcoală particulară elitistă din Chicago. Gaşca fiţoaselor de la Sfânta Sofia este însă mai dificil de suportat decât cerinţele academice. Ciudata Scout, singura care se distinge de restul colegelor sale, dispare noaptea în subsolurile clădirii. Urmărind-o, Lily află că noua sa prietenă face parte dintr-un grup de adolescenţi rebeli, cu puteri magice, care au sarcina de a proteja oraşul de vampiri, demoni şi Secerători. Ar vrea să le vină şi ea în ajutor, numai că va avea de înfruntat blestemul focului…

De pe Goodreads!(12)

Stiu ca nu v-am mai prezentat aceasta rubrica de mult,dar ba cu concursuri astea fulger,ba cu interviurile am uitat de ea.Dar astazi,dupa ce am mai iesit din  “Pretty in Black”(am inceput-o de aseara si am citit deja 200 de pagini-e frumoasa,va zic mai multe in recenzie) am intrat pe Goodreads si am gasit o carte care suna bine: “A blood seduction” de Pamela Palmer.Sper sa va placa!

Vampires live only for lust and pleasure in the eternal twilight of Vamp City. But the city’s magic is dying. The only person who can restore it? A beautiful woman from the mortal world…one who knows nothing of the power she wields.

Quinn Lennox is searching for a missing friend when she stumbles into a dark otherworld that only she can see—and finds herself at the mercy of Arturo Mazza, a dangerously handsome vampire whose wicked kiss will save her, enslave her, bewitch her, and betray her.

What Arturo can’t do is forget about her—any more than Quinn can control her own feelings for him. Neither one can let desire get in the way of their mission—his to save his people, hers to save herself.

But there is no escape from desire in a city built for seduction, where passion flows hot and blood-red. Welcome to Vamp City…

Cartea urmeaza sa fie lansata pe 29 Mai.

Adopted by the Alpha of a werewolf pack after a rogue wolf brutally killed her parents right before her eyes, fifteen-year-old Bryn knows only pack life, and the rigid social hierarchy that controls it.  That doesn’t mean that she’s averse to breaking a rule or two.

But when her curiosity gets the better of her and she discovers Chase, a new teen locked in a cage in her guardian’s basement, and witnesses him turn into a wolf before her eyes, the horrific memories of her parents’ murders return. Bryn becomes obsessed with getting her questions answered, and Chase is the only one who can provide the information she needs.

But in her drive to find the truth, will Bryn push too far beyond the constraints of the pack, forcing her to leave behind her friends, her family, and the identity that she’s shaped?

Azi vin cu prezentarea unei carti care mi se pare foarte interesanta : “Pulse of Heroes” de A.Jacob Sweeny.Sper sa va sune la fel de interesanta ca mie! ❤

WINNER OF 2011 INDIE BOOK OF THE YEAR!!!! At Paranormal Reads!
A suspenseful, passionate, paranormal romance that sweeps through the emotions of first love and heartache as it traverses centuries and continents.

Michelle used to feel like she was behind in everything, especially school and relationships. Her great aunt from the old country says she is like a bland meal, “no salt or pepper”. But in junior year, everything changes. Her father takes a position on the Town Council, a popular boy in school becomes interested in her, and most importantly, the Hekademos Learning Center, a private school for ‘troubled’ students, moves into her quiet neighborhood amidst the protests of the entire town.

After an embarrassing fall over the school wall, Michelle meets Elliot and her ordinary ‘bland’ life changes its course forever.

Elliot is no ordinary human. In fact, no one at the Hekademos Learning Center is. Beautiful and fierce, they have survived throughout the millennia by weaving in and out of human events. Through them, Michelle learns that history and myths from around the world are dotted with references to their kind. Michelle falls madly in love with the ever-striking and mysterious Elliot and, as much as he tries to fight it, he develops strong feelings for her as well. Although Elliot carries numerous painful memories from his many pasts, he disregards his own better judgment and the advice of his friends, and finds himself falling for Michelle‘s offbeat personality. Their feelings grow in intensity, but when History catches up with them, the difference between their life paths threatens to destroy any future that they might have had together.

Michelle learns that there are infinite shades of gray between black and white, and has to deal with the bundle of contradictory emotions called love. She has to trust her intuition in order to face the danger and uncertainty of being drawn into Elliot’s wondrous world. Ultimately, it is up to Michelle to make the split-second, life-altering decision that will either tear them apart forever, or give them another chance.

Ce parere aveti?Mie mi-ar placea sa o citesc!
