Book Review: Iron's Prophecy (The Iron Fey #4.5) by: Julie Kagawa

Release Date: September 1, 2012
from Harlequin TEEN
Add To Goodreads

"Meghan Chase is finally getting used to being the Iron Queen, ruler of the Iron Fey. Her life may be strange, but with former Winter prince Ash by her side at last, she wouldn’t have it any other way.
But when they travel to the Summer and Winter courts’ gathering for Elysium, the oracle from Meghan’s past returns with a dire prophecy: “What you carry will either unite the courts, or it will destroy them.” Now Meghan faces a devastating choice that may determine the future of all fey—and her and Ash’s unborn child… "

My Thoughts:

I have been meaning to post a review for this one for a while, so when I did a re-read I figured now was as good a time as any. We all know that I adore anything Iron Fey related, so naturally I just gobbled up this novella. I loved getting to see my favorite characters again. It was like one last hurrah before we transition to Ethan as the MC.

Part of the reason my favorite Iron Fey book is The Iron Knight is because we get to see Puck and Ash working side by side.. well this novella one ups that and we get to see the three of them working together and TRULY getting along. Of course Ash and Puck bicker, but that is them. Ash continues to be one of the swooniest characters out there and I will forever love him. Puck is still hysterical as always. I would be content to follow him around for ages simply watching him interact with random things. Then Meghan is simply great. She is such a truly strong heroine and does not take anything from anyone. It helps when you have Mr. Freeze backing you, but even without Ash, Meghan is very capable of holding her own.

All is all this novella is a must read for fans of the Iron Fey series and if you have not read these books yet... what the heck are you waiting for?

Book Review: To Kill An Angel (Blood Like Poison #3) by: M. Leighton

Release Date: September 1, 2011

"Ridley Heller thought her life would be perfect and trouble-free once she had Bo back. Unfortunately, she couldn’t have been more wrong. Learning Bo’s true identity has left them with their most difficult decision yet. They have two options. One, they can run away together and spend eternity looking over their shoulder, hiding from both God and Sebastian. Or, two, they can find a way to kill Sebastian. Ridley feels like there’s really only one choice, but killing Sebastian has a major down side for her—it will leave Bo mortal and her a vampire. She’ll be doomed to walk the earth alone for all eternity.

What will they choose? And who will have to die in order to see their goal accomplished? Find out in the exciting conclusion of the Blood Like Poison series, To Kill An Angel."

My Thoughts:

It is no secret that Leighton is one of my favorite authors and this book just solidified that fact even more. This is the first paranormal series I have read from her and now I am itching to get my hands on some more. She just knows how to tell a great story, simple as that. From page one I was absorbed and I finished this book in a matter of hours. 

Ridley has come a very long way from the girl we met in the first book. She has become so strong and she is willing to do anything for those she loves. In the first book she came across as a bit weak and timid and clearly caught up in things way over her head, now she faces these things head on and is willing to deal with whatever necessary to stay a part of Bo’s life. I really came to love her character over the course of this book. 

I fell in love with Bo in the first book, but there was just something really spectacular about him in this book. He seemed to open up a bit more and he wasn’t as reserved as he once was. This really added just something extra to his personality. He didn’t spend time trying to stay away from Ridley and has accepted that he makes her life better not worse. He wasn’t as broody and we really got to see his lighter side. I loved him when he was joking and witty. 

The romance between Ridley and Bo is taken to new levels in this book. It began as very innocent and sweet, but now it is so much more. It is still sweet, but it is also fiery and passionate. It is strikingly clear how much they love one another and their devotion is just something I loved reading about. 

I think my favorite thing about this series is the way Leighton took two of my favorite paranormal creatures and combined them into one world seemingly effortlessly. She took vampires and angels and somehow wove them together. I loved how she combined the two histories. When authors try to do this, it doesn’t always work so well for the story, but with this series it just made it better. 

I am so very glad I finally got around to reading this series because I really loved it. Leighton wrapped up the series really well and I adored the ending. *sigh* This is a series I would definitely love to relive again.

"His hands slid roughly down her back, tangling in her hair, fisting in the loose fabric at the back of her dress. Half-lifting her so their bodies collided; he was against her, the long slim length of his body, hard and fragile at the same time. Her head slanted to the side as he parted her lips with his and they were not so much as kissing as devouring each other. Her fingers gripped his hair tightly, hard enough that it must have hurt, and her teeth grazed his bottom lip. He groaned and pulled her tighter, making her gasp for air."

Book Review: Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by: Cassandra Clare

Release Date: March 19, 2013
from McElderry Books
Add To Goodreads

"Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy

Tessa Gray should be happy - aren't all brides happy?
Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute.
A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to Mortmain, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. Mortmain needs only one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. And Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa's heart, will do anything to save her."

My Thoughts:

So there is no way I will be able to get through this review without spoilers for Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince. I will be spoiler free though for Clockwork Princess

I have never in my life read a book that made me cry as much as this book did. I literally began crying during the Preface and I did not stop until long after I finished the Epilogue. I stayed up until late in the night because of my inability to put this book down, I just could not do it. There was no way I was stopping until I had my conclusion and well it was perfect. Don't get me wrong, there was pain and it hurt... a lot... just thinking about it is making me cry again, but it was still perfect. I will never ever forget Will and Jem and Tessa's story.

This story is very much about love and the things you will do for it and because of it. Every single character in this book acts the way he or she does because of someone they love. Whether it is Will's love for Tessa or his love for Jem. Or Jem's love for Tessa or his love for Will. Or how Tessa loves them both equally... and yes she truly does love them both equally. How could she not? Jem and Will are pretty much a package deal, to love one you have to love the other. But the point is, that everything that transpires over the course of this book is due to the overwhelming amount of love between the three characters. 

Tessa is such an incredible heroine and I adore her. She is so strong and determined and she questions everything! She is funny and witty and just so many wonderful things. She perseveres through some very tough times and she is selfless in everything she does. Also, I feel as if I can relate to Tessa on some level, mostly through her love of books and the way she can get lost in one. Then there is Jem who is so incredibly kind and probably one of the best and understanding characters out there. The things he does are just... I don't even know. Then we have my favorite... Will Herondale. I love this boy to death. Here is another truly selfless character. I also truly love his wit and way with words and the way he can get lost in a book so easily. All I can say is that I would love to find my own personal Will Herondale one day. And I can't forget the secondary characters. Sophie.. love her. Gideon.. love him. Cecily... adore her. Henry... adorable. Charlotte... love her too.

Generally I am not a fan of love triangles, at least the ones that feel forced (which unfortunately so many do). But this book is a real and true love triangle and I adored it. There is no petty jealousy and fighting, it is truly a tangle of love between these three, where in the end unfortunately someone has to get hurt, if not all of them. I feel as if I am as torn as Tessa, even though I clearly prefer Will. It is because it is so abundantly clear that she loves them both and that they both love her with all that they are. It is no surprise that Will and Jem would fall for the same girl.

Then we have the relationship between Will and Jem... and honestly I think this is the most important relationship in the entire book. Their relationship is the definition of unconditional love. There is nothing one would not do for the other. I wish I could say I had a friend like Will or Jem, but I think a relationship like theirs is a truly rare and beautiful thing. Throughout the course of this book, the things that broke me the most were the things that happened between these two.

Speaking of breaking, this book broke me down. There has never been a book that made me cry the way this book did. It literally made my heart ache and twist in pain to the point where I had to stop and literally clutch at my chest. I would be crying (cause seriously, I didn't stop) but then through the tears I would find myself laughing over something silly Will said or did. Then there was the happy crying as well. To drive this point home, there was one point during the book, nothing major just one line, but I read it and it made my chest hurt so much that I had to stop grab my chest and I literally said to the empty room "Ow. That one hurt, that one really hurt." I realized there was no one who could hear me, but I wasn't really thinking coherently. 

There are so many other things I am dying to say about this book and I know this review is probably hard to follow if you didn't read it, but there is just so much about this book that can be spoiled and I could never do that to this book. So I will wrap it up here. Clockwork Princess is an incredible conclusion to an outstanding trilogy. This book resulted in the worst book hangover I have ever had, I can't move on and I don't know if I will ever really shake these characters. I feel as if Will and Jem and Tessa have taken a piece of my heart with them never to be seen again.

Cover Reveal: Frigid by: J. Lynn

"For twenty-one-year-old Sydney, being in love with Kyler isn't anything new. They'd been best friends ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie. Somewhere over the years, she fell for him and fell hard. The big problem with that? Kyler puts the 'man' in man-whore. He's never stayed with a girl longer than a few nights, and with it being their last year in college, Syd doesn't want to risk their friendship by declaring her love.

Kyler has always put Syd on a pedestal that was too high for him to reach. To him, she's perfect and she's everything. But the feelings he has for her, he's always hidden away or focused on any other female. After all, Kyler will always be the poor boy from the wrong side of tracks, and Syd will always be the one girl he can never have.

But when they're stranded together at a posh ski resort due to a massive Nor'easter, there's nothing stopping their red-hot feelings for each other from coming to the surface. Can their friendship survive the attraction? Better yet, can they survive at all? Because as the snow falls, someone is stalking them, and this ski trip may be a life-changer in more ways than one."

Frigid will be available in digital formats on July 30th 2013

Book Review: Black City (Black City #1) by: Elizabeth Richards

Release Date: November 13, 2012 from Penguin
Add To Goodreads

"In a city where humans and Darklings are now separated by a high wall and tensions between the two races still simmer after a terrible war, sixteen-year-olds Ash Fisher, a half-blood Darkling, and Natalie Buchanan, a human and the daughter of the Emissary, meet and do the unthinkable—they fall in love. Bonded by a mysterious connection that causes Ash’s long-dormant heart to beat, Ash and Natalie first deny and then struggle to fight their forbidden feelings for each other, knowing if they’re caught, they’ll be executed—but their feelings are too strong.

When Ash and Natalie then find themselves at the center of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to pull the humans and Darklings back into war, they must make hard choices that could result in both their deaths."

My Thoughts:

If The Hunger Games met up with some vampires, it would result in this book. So naturally I enjoyed this book immensely. I know a lot of people are going to hate me for this next statement, but Black City was a book along the lines of The Immortal Rules only I thought it was better *hides*. Don’t get me wrong, I adore Julie Kagawa and her Iron Fey books, but I just could not get into The Immortal Rules as much as I wanted to. I love a good dystopian and I am a paranormal addict, so when Black City combined the two I just fell in love.

Ash is our hero and one I think a lot of people can relate to. He feels like he doesn’t belong which is something everyone feels at some point during their life. But for Ash, it holds a bit truer. Ash is a twin blood, meaning he is part Darkling (vampire) and part human. He doesn’t really have a place in the world. He is also the kind of person who knows things are not right in the world but feels like there is no point in speaking up because he alone can’t make a difference. Ash isn’t willing to die for a cause, but then he meets Natalie and suddenly he knows that there is something worth dying for.

Natalie is a character that I struggled to like in the beginning. By the end of the book I absolutely loved her, but initially it was tough. She is a Sentry who has lived a life of luxury, she has never had to work or think for herself and it shows. Her life has not been easy and she has dealt with loss and tragedy, but at the same time she is spoiled. I was glad to see her character grow into a truly strong and determined person.

The world Elizabeth created really is fantastic and scary. It is not necessarily somewhere I would want to live but it is an awesome world to read about. The creatures are scary but so are the humans. The plot has twists and turns and you never know who you can really trust. It was a world that was very easy to get lost in.

With all of that being said, there were some issues I had with Black City. Firstly, the relationship between Ash and Natalie was quick. I would not call it insta-love but it has insta-love tendencies. They go from hating each other to madly and deeply in love with each other very quickly. I will admit that there is a reason for this, but still. Also the two of them seemed to fight a lot. But these fights never seemed to be over things of major importance and then they forgave each other rather quickly. I don’t know why, but it bugged me a bit. If you are going to fight, make it a good fight and then work to makes things okay again! Sorry doesn’t always cut it in my opinion. Lastly, there was an attempt at a love triangle but I just didn’t see it and I do not like a forced love triangle.

All in all, Black City was an enjoyable read. It took all the elements of dystopians that I love and combined them with the paranormal to make a great world. And with that ending, I am dying to get my hands on Phoenix.

Character Spotlight: Braden Carmichael

So my character spotlight this week is on a character that holds a very special place in my heart. I was gushing about this character with my blogging wifey Michele over at A Belle’s Tales and I could probably gush about him forever, so I was inspired to finally do my character spotlight on him this week. Braden Carmichael from On Dublin Street by Samantha Young is my character of choice! 

It really is no secret how much I absolutely adored On Dublin Street. It is probably one of my all time favorite books. A big reason for that is I loved the characters. Jocelyn is wonderful and Braden is just delicious. Braden is the kind of character that it is very easy to fall head over heels in love with and fall I did. From the moment he got in the cab with Jocelyn, I knew he was going to be a favorite of mine. 

One of the biggest reasons I love Braden is that he is realistic. He is not perfect and sometimes he says things that make me feel like I have been pushed off a cliff, but that is what makes him real. Guys don’t always have the perfect thing to say and sometimes they say the wrong thing, and that is Braden. Then again, most of the time Braden knows exactly what to say. 

Braden is a very strong and domineering character, but he is also caring and sweet and romantic. I loved that he was so willing to put up with all of Jocelyn’s crap because he thought she was worth it. He knows exactly what makes her tick and knows just what to say to make her see reason. Also, with Braden it is necessary to acknowledge how schmexy he is. I swear the man is just made of swoon. I pretty much melted into a puddle every time he opened his mouth! 

So to sum it up, if you have not met Braden Carmichael yet, I suggest you do. 

Favorite Braden Quotes: 
“I know you love me, Jocelyn, because there’s no fucking way I can be this much in love with you, and not have you feel the same way. It’s not possible.” 

“I feel like I'm missing something really important when you're gone. So important I don't feel like myself. I've never felt like someone was mine before. But you're mine, Jocelyn. I've known that from the moment we met. And I'm yours. I don't want to be anyone else's, babe.” 

“I'm making a list of things that make you agreeable."
I scoffed, pushing my foot into his leg. "And all you got is sex and vacations?"
"The length of the list is not my fault."
"Are you saying I'm disagreeable?"
He raised an eyebrow. "Woman, how stupid do you think I am? You really think I'm answering that? I want to get laid tonight?"
I pushed him harder. "Watch it, or you might get laid to rest."
Braden threw his head back and laughed.”

Book Review: Hunted (The Guardian Legacy #3) by: Ednah Walters

Release Date: April 2, 2013
from Spencer Hill Press
Add To Goodreads
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review. 
"Bran and Lil may have escaped an attempt to lure Lil to the dark side, and recovered the contracts damned people signed with Bran when he was a soul collector, but someone forgot to tell them that no one switches sides or cancels contracts without consequences.

Hunted by an unknown but powerful enemy, Lil, Bran and the Guardians must seek help from unlikely sources to avert total annihilation of the Guardians. When they finally face their enemy, one of them may have to make the ultimate sacrifice."

My Thoughts:

I’m pretty sure I have a love/hate relationship with this series, well not really... I love it but sometimes I want to shake the book and make the characters do what I want them to do. I am always addicted and engrossed with the story, but I have moments where I just want to chuck the book across the room. It’s an odd feeling but overall I would say I enjoyed the book.

Lil is a good heroine. She may not be my favorite but I do like her. She is a genuinely good person and she always tries to make the right choice. Also, she doesn't whine and I really appreciate that. However, sometimes I think she brushes things off a bit too easily. People always seem to be keeping secrets from her and if it was me I would start cracking skulls and demanding answers instead of just waiting for people to finally tell me. Then again I’m impatient.

Then we have Bran who is my favorite. I just love him so much! But boy do you need to learn to stay still! It seems like in every book in this series he goes missing at some point. There are always a few chapters where Lil doesn’t know where he is and those chapters always drive me bonkers.

I also love the secondary characters in this series, especially Sykes. He just always knows how to lighten the mood. He makes me laugh out loud constantly. I also love Master Haziel a lot; simply because he is the wise know it all teacher with a weird sense of humor.

The plot in Hunted was really fast moving and kept me turning pages. It killed me every single time I had to stop. I just wanted to know where the story was headed. Some of it was predictable, but I found that it didn’t take anything away from the story. With that being said, some of it frustrated me. A pet peeve of mine is when characters lose their memories and that happened in this one. I hate having to relearn things so initially I was angry. However, as the story progressed it became clear that the memory loss was not going to be the main focus of the story. Once I realized this I was a happy camper and moved past this pet peeve of mine.

All in all, Hunted is a very enjoyable read, especially for those who enjoy angel/demon books. This one has everything you want in an angel book while still maintaining its own distinct feel.

""Do you remember," he said, "when we first met and I told you I was ninety percent sure putting a rune on you wouldn't kill you - and you slapped me in the face and told me it was for the other ten percent?" Clary nodded. "I always figured a demon would kill me," he said. "A rogue downworlder. A battle. But I realized then that I just might die if I didn't get to kiss you, and soon." Clary licked her dry lips. "Well, you did," she said. "Kiss me, I mean." He reached up and took a curl of her hair between his fingers. He was close enough that she could feel the warmth of his body, smell his soap and skin and hair. "Not enough," he said, letting her hair slip through his fingers. "If I kiss you all day every day for the rest of my life, it won't be enough."" 

So I read some great books recently, but there wasn't a real swoon moment that I fell in love with... so I went back into the vault of swoony moments I love and pick an all time favorite of mine!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I HAD To Buy... But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread

 photo 01baab13-dab0-414f-8962-860971e04dd3_zps72862f0c.jpg

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish

This week is all about those books that you just HAD to get, but then never got around to reading. Well I have a bunch of these...

1. Toxic by: Jus Accardo- I was so excited for this book and I even pre-ordered it.. but then it got here and I ended up going away for a week and by the time I got back I was distracted by other shiny books and I still haven't gotten back to it. I still want to read it, now I just need to find the time.

2. Pride by: Rachel Vincent- After I finished reading the Soul Screamers series, I decided I needed to buy all of Rachel Vincent's books... and I did. However, I still have yet to make my way through them all. I read the first two of her Shifters books... and loved them... but I have yet to dive back in and start Pride.

3. Dearly, Beloved by: Lia Habel- I adored Dearly, Departed and bought this one immediately after finishing it, but for some reason it just never got read. I really need to make time for it soon, because I really am DYING to read this one.

4. Up In Flames by: Nicole Williams- I bought this one the day it released! I love her writing. I really want to make time for this book soon!

5. Everbound by: Brodi Ashton- This is another one I bought the day it released and I had every intention of reading it immediately... once again I got distracted and then never got back to it, which really saddens me.

6. Falling Kingdoms by: Morgan Rhodes- This one had a lot of hype and I was really excited to see if it would live up to the hype. I hope to get to read it soon!

7. The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by: Jessica Sorensen- That cover drew me in and then I heard amazing things about it, so I bought it. One day I will finally read it.

8. Of Poseidon by: Anna Banks- I was excited to read this one because it sounded different as I have never read a mermaid book... but then I just never read it because I never felt in the mood for it and I still haven't.

9. Beautiful Darkness by: Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia- I actually have all of these books, but this one will be next up since I finished Beautiful Creatures. Before the movie was coming out I just needed to buy all the books, because apparently waiting for me is not an option. Hopefully I can start in on the second book soon.

10. Spark by: Brigid Kemmerer- I wanted to start this one immediately after Storm so I bought it and then well like with every other book on this list, I was once again distracted by other shiny books.
