Blog Hop...(16)

Blog Hop is a meme that is hosted by Crazy For Books each Friday until Monday.

Book Blogger Hop

This is my sixteenth hop and I am still finding great blogs out there and loving weekly questions!!

Blog on =)

Question: What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost? 

Answer:  I am going to give you two of my options, one that would require me winning the lottery to ever fulfill and the other which is a bit more realistic and financially achievable.

First Option - My dream would be to have my very own personal library, like a whole house or something filled of books that I love. I think it would be great to be able to just walk into a room, pick up a book and enjoy. That is my idea of book heaven.

Second Option - On a bit more on the realistiv side is that I would like a Kindle..been thinking about it lately and I think I HAVE to get one LOL
Have a great weekend =)

Review: Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs

My Rating: E, P, B

Published: 2010
Publisher: Orbit

Author's Website:

Purchase @

Being a mechanic is hard work. Mercy Thompson, for instance, just spend the last couple of months trying to evade the murderous queen of the local vampire seethe. And now the leader of the werewolf pack, who’s maybe-more-than-just-a-friend, has asked her for her help. A book of fae secrets has come to light and they’re all about to find out how implacable – and dangerous – the fae can be.

Okay, so maybe her trouble have nothing to do with the job. But she sure could use a holiday...

Silver Borne is the fifth instalment in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. This book is suspenseful, sexually torqued to the max and full of mystery.

Mercy is still trying to deal with her issues after the ‘Tim incident’ and is slowly coming round to being able to be with Adam without flinching. Dealing with the pack is another can of worms altogether. Now that she has been properly inducted into the pack as the Alpha leader’s, Adam Hauptman, mate she can feel the pack at anytime, anywhere and vice versa. This would be a great thing if Mercy was able to control the magic within her but she can’t, which makes her a target and easy prey for those in the pack that don’t like having a coyote in their midst. Another problem arises when Tad, Zee’s son, calls Mercy and asks her to look in on a friend who seems to have gone missing and turns into a man-hunt. On top of all that, Mercy has a suicidal werewolf to deal with.

Silver Borne pulled me in from the minute I opened the first page, as did the other books in the series. I feel as if I can relate to Mercy even though I am nothing like her. She has the same love life problems as most women her age except she has to throw the supernatural on top of it, she’s a coyote and her love interest is the alpha male of the local pack. A pack which detests Mercy, which to me feels like being back at school. Everyone has their own clique and if you don’t fit the criteria you are an outcast. This has never stopped Mercy though – she ploughs on and takes it all on the chin and comes out the other side fighting. Sometimes I just wish that Mercy could be given a break from her life as everything seems to come at her all at once, she never seems to get a break from the onslaught. Hopefully the next book might have a bit of rest and relaxation in Mercy’s future.

Overall, I absolutely love this book and have thoroughly enjoyed the series. I am sad that we never saw any interaction with the vampires in this book but I am sure there is more to see from them in future books and I can’t wait to see how it will involve Mercy and/or the werewolf pack.

Review: City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

My Rating: E, P, B

Published: 2009
Publisher: Walker Books

Author's Website:

Purchase @

Amid the chaos of war, the Shadowhunters must decide to fight with the vampires, werewolves and other Downworlders – or against them. Meanwhile, Jace and Clary have their own decision to make: should they pursue the love they know is forbidden?

City of Glass is the third instalment in The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. This is by far most my favourite book from the series so far. There’s clarity, love, action and surprising secrets are unveiled.

Throughout City of Glass we see Jace and Clary try to fight their taboo love but neither can accept that the other is there sibling. They can’t see how their love for one another can be wrong. Clary and Jace discover some family secrets when they return to Idris but what they find out does not bode well with Jace and he then becomes a very self-destructing character. Clary is getting used to her new found powers and in the end it is what helps save them.

There was a sense of foreboding throughout the book and I kept hoping that everything would be explained and that everything would work out the way I envisioned it in my head. It nearly all worked out how I thought it would however there were a lot of twists and turns in the plot. Some of them blew my mind and made me think I was stupid for missing the set up. I love it when a book does this, makes you think it’s going one way and totally does a u-turn. It keeps you guessing and I appreciate a book that makes my mind think. Even if I do get it wrong.

I had so many favourite moments in this book. I can’t possibly list them all and if I did I would end up telling you how everything happened and I don’t want to spoil the book for you. What I will tell you is that I loved all the new characters that were introduced in this book. I loved some and I hated some. There was a part in the book where I was especially sad and it nearly made me cry. I think it’s amazing how words can stir up so many emotions within the reader and this is exactly what Cassandra Clare achieved with me.

Overall, I have loved this series so far. All the loose ends, I think, were tied up nicely except one, but I hope this is revisited in City of Fallen Angels. I would highly recommend this series to anyone out there that likes stories that cover the majority of the supernatural world, this series has everything; faeries, demons, warlocks, angels, vampires, werewolves.

Review: Double Cross by Carolyn Crane

Double Cross by Carolyn Crane

My Rating: E, P, B

Published: 2010
Publisher: Ballantine Books

Author's Website:

Purchase @

Justine Jones lived her life as a fearful hypochondriac until she was lured into the web of a mysterious master-mind named Packard, who gifts her with extraordinary mental powers – dooming her to fight Midcity’s shadowy war on paranormal crime in order to find the peace she so desperately craves.

But now serial killers with unheard-of skills are terrorizing the most powerful beings in Midcity, including mastermind Packard and his oldest friend and worst enemy, Mayor Otto Sanchez, who has the ability to bend matter itself to his will.

as the body count grows, Justine faces a crisis of conscience as she test the limits of her new powers and faces an impossible choice between two flawed but brilliant men – one on a journey of redemption, the other descending into a pit of moral depravity.

Double Cross is the second book in the Disillusionist trilogy by Carolyn Crane. Full of mystery, intrigue and plot twists galore. This book/series will keep you on your toes.

Justine is still adjusting to her new life as a disillusionist working for Packard who is currently free from his prison as long as his team of disillusionists work for Otto by disillusioning the high-cap criminals that are prisoner by his mind. On top of this, Justine is trying to have a normal relationship with Otto Sanchez, the Mayor of Midcity, when a new team of bad-ass high-cap resistant team start targeting high-caps trying to kill them. On top of all that, Justine has to deal with dream-dropping in on the one and only person she wishes to not be linked to.

Shelby, Carter and Simon make an exceptional return. We see another side of Shelby that is really sweet as I didn’t think she had it in her what with her pessimistic attitude towards life and its’ surroundings. I also just love her character as a whole as she is so funny with her dry wit humour. Carter is still as angry as ever and remind me to never get on the wrong side of him, that would be scary and very, very, life endangering. Simon is his same old usual self; constantly taking chances and trying to find ways to escape Packard’s hold on him.

I absolutely adore his series by Mrs Crane. This book is full of suspense and there is enough action to keep you on your toe. Just when you think the suspense is coming to an end, wham, you are knocked out by a total and utter plot twist that you could never have seen coming a mile away and then it ends. It ends on such a killer cliff hanger that I physically wanted to throw the book at the wall and scream blue murder. Of course I didn’t do that as I love my books but still, the cliff hanger has definitely got me sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the release of the untitled third and final book in the series. Hopefully my sanity will have returned and I will have the guts to read it to find out what else is in store for Justine and Co.

My favourite part of the book was near the end after the long and scintillating build up where Justine gets to be with the man of her dreams. But then that cliff hanger at the end just leaves you speechless and angry. Nevertheless, I still loved this book and have thoroughly enjoyed the series so far and now I am going to wondering what in store for the disillusionists in the third and final book of the series.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book and the series to any urban fantasy fans out there. If you haven’t heard of these books already, then where on earth have you been living? Under a rock? In all seriousness, this book and its’ series is writing like nothing else I have ever read. It has everything you could want from a book/series; awesome characters, a love triangle between the “good guy”, “the bad guy” and the heroine, hard core criminals with supernaturalesque powers and a seriously amazing thrilling and suspenseful story line.

Disclaimer: I was sent this book by the wonderful Carolyn Crane herself for review. I have not been paid to review this book and everything I have said is of my own honest opinion.

Review: The Demon Kiss by Lacey Weatherford

My Rating: E, P, B

Published: 2010
Publisher: Global Authors Publications

Author's Website:

Purchase @ - UK Distributor

After being drained of nearly all the blood in her body, novice witch, Portia Mullins, wakes up to find that her warlock boyfriend, Vance Mangum, has fled in search of his demon father. Determined t keep him from facing the evil alone Portia follows after hi, unknowingly setting herself on the path of a new adventure that will taker he, Vance, and their coven over international borders, into a foreign place where they will discover that the black magic which awaits them is far worse than they ever imagines. Portia finds herself tangles up in a web of lies and deceit in another’s quest for demonic power in the excitingly romantic second paranormal novel in the Of Witches and Warlocks series, The Demon Kiss.

The Demon Kiss is the second book in the Of Witches and Warlocks series by Lacey Weatherford. This book has the perfect balance of love, action, determination and resilience.

After waking from a horrific ordeal, Portia finds that the love of her life is gone. This infuriates her and makes her determined to find Vance and give him a piece of her mind. He has ran off to find his demonic father and take care of him once and for all. Portia is outraged that Vance has left her behind and is worried that he won’t come back to her. So she decides to go find him along with her two best friends promising to call in the coven when she finds him.

This trip ends up being more of a black ops mission; to find Vance’s father, help save his victims and kill him whilst not getting killed themselves. This is a lot more tricky that what they think as Vance’s father has unlimited power and resources.

I loved the character development in this book. Portia shows just how resilient and strong she is in this story. Not only has she to deal with her every advancing powers and recovering from being drained of blood but also has a blood lusting boyfriend to deal with. I also loved how much closer Portia and Vance became in this book if that’s even possible. It seems as if their love is even more unbreakable.

I had a strange feeling of foreshadowing in this book but not from anything that Lacey had written. I had the feeling that something bad was going to happen as soon as I started reading one of the chapters and it ended up happening how I thought it would but at the same time I was surprise that it happened. The ending left me with the mother of all cliffhangers but at the same time it explains the nightmare that Vance went through in The Trouble With Spells.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed The Demon Kiss and can’t wait to read the next book in the series, Blood of the Witch. Hopefully some more answers will be made available in the next book.

Blog Hop...(14)

Blog Hop is a meme that is hosted by Crazy For Books each Friday until Monday.

Book Blogger Hop

This is my fourteenth hop and I am still finding great blogs out there!! Blog on =)

Question:  When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?

Answer: So far I haven't had much books like that for me and when I have done, they haven't been books I have been sent for review or ones I have bought personally. It's normally ones I have borrowed from the library. For the ones that I have come across that I couldn't get into, I normally stop reading if I can't get into it after the first few chapters.
Having said that, if I was sent a book for review and couldn't get into it, I would probably stick it out for longer to ensure that I definitely am not enjoying it because of the story itself and not the starting chapters. I would definitely try and stick it out so I could give a review at the end whether negative or positive, but if I truly couldn't get into it at least half way thru then I would probably give up.

I would give books for review more of a chance to win me over than I would if I borrowed a book from the library because the way I see it, the authors/publishers have been kind enough to send me a book for free to review, the least I can do is take the time to at least give the book a chance before adding it to my not-finished-reading pile.

Have a great weekend =)

Review: The Trouble With Spells by Lacey Weatherford

My Rating: E, P, B

Published: 2009
Publisher: Publish America

Author's Website:

Purchase @ - UK Distributor

Portia Mullins had always lived the life of a normal teenager, up until her sixteenth birthday. She is then informed by her grandma that she is actually a witch who is a descendant from a long line of witches and warlocks. After overcoming her disbelief she finds that being a member of the coven comes with the one great perk in the form of the school’s handsome bad boy, Vance Mangum. Vance and Portia have an immediate connection as a budding romance begins, only to be threatened by turbulent skies on the horizon as Vance’s checkered past rears its ugly head to haunt them. Portia is forced to use her untried powers in defense of everything she loves in a desperate attempt to hold on to the one thing that really matters in her life.

The Trouble With Spells is Lacey Weatherford’s debut novel and first in the Of Witches and Warlocks series.

Where to start? I loved this book. I was hooked on this book as soon as I started reading. Portia, the lead female, sucked me right in with the description of her life, her little home town and her quirky grandma. The writing style is different from what I normally read. By that I mean the way characters talk and act. The majority of the responses from Portia and Vance I thought were unbelievable at first but once I thought about it, I realised that I was just thinking about how I would react or how other characters have reacted in other books I have read. Once I realised this, I pulled my mind away from that way of thinking and just let the characters tell the story. Best thing I could have ever done as it made enjoying the story ten times better.

I absolutely loved the way that Vance and Portia interact with one another. In some ways they are the epitome of teenager romance but then in other ways they are like an old married couple with experience beyond their years. They are unwilling to live without the other and I think a love that strong is unimpeachable and sweet. I originally thought everything was happening very fast between for our main characters but then once I thought about it some more it made sense. All teenagers go through these stages in life; falling head over heels in love, pushing everything aside to be with that person, doing things you wouldn’t normally do for love and this is exactly how it is for Portia Vance.

As always there is impending doom on the horizon for our loved up couple. The coven, Portia and Vance work tirelessly trying to avoid the danger but unfortunately it’s not enough. Vance and Portia are divided and it looks as if it could be a permanent. There was a devastating scene that I didn’t see coming and I literally screamed in my head. It was very out of the blue but it fit the story perfectly.

Overall, The Trouble With Spells is an absolutely great read. It captures the essence of teenage innocence with some of the supernatural mixed in. I definitely recommend it to anyone that has a thing for guys with gorgeous blue eyes, washboard abs and rides a motorcycle.

Review: The Killing Dance by Laurell K Hamilton

My Rating: E, P, B

Published: 1997
Publisher: Orbit

Author's Website:

Purchase @

The first hit man came after me at home, which should be against the rules. Then there was a second, and a third. Word on the street is that Anita Blake, expert on creatures of the night and vampire killer extraordinaire, is worth half a million dollars. Dead, not alive.

So what’s a girl to do but turn to the men in her life for help? Which in my case means an alpha werewolf and a master vampire. With professional killers on your trail, it’s not a bad idea to have as much protection as possible, human or otherwise.

But I’m beginning to wonder if two monsters are better than one.

The Killing Dance is the sixth book in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series by Laurell K Hamilton. This is my favourite book in the series so far.

Anita has a lot on her plate in The Killing Dance. Not only is there someone paying assassins to kill her, she is being accused of murder and she is having a real hard time deciding between the two gorgeous monsters in her life, Jean Claude the Master Vampire of the City and Richard the werewolf alpha.

The threat to Anita’s life causes her to become closer to both Jean Claude and Richard, a lot closer than she anticipated. We finally see Anita commit more to one of her boyfriend’s than the other and all I can say is, it was hot, I’m sure I was blushing reading it. By committing herself to one of her monsters it has meant that she has lost her relationship with the other, which wasn’t what she wanted. With the mention of assassins, Edward makes a reappearance and it was nice. I thought he had gotten lost for a while there because he wasn’t in the last couple of books. He was very involved with Anita’s life – but on which side I can’t tell you. Anita also discovers a new side to her necromancy powers and it proves to be quite impressive.

My favourite part of the book was the part where Anita was getting up close and personal with one of her suitors. I think it was the most pivotal scene in the book because it’s where Anita finally makes her choice between her two suits. I am sure that this will mean something greater in the coming books, but what that is I don’t know. I personally think that Anita made the right choice as this person knows her so well and vice versa.

Everything else that happens in the book is well written and the motives behind each character’s decisions and actions all make sense when you get near to the end of the story. It annoys me when authors leave books with outrageous cliff hangers and you have to wait until the next book to find out what happens. Luckily Laurell K Hamilton doesn’t do this and wraps everything up nicely and neatly but still leaving a little mystery to make you want to read more. I am amazed at the complexity of the storylines as they always keep me guessing who the ‘bad’ guy is and I can never figure it out. It’s one of the reasons that I love the series so much.

Out of all the books in the series, this is my utmost favourite and would recommend it to lovers of the supernatural genre.

Question:  What's your favourite beverage while reading or blogging, if any? Is it tea, coffee, water, a glass of wine, or something else?

Answer: I'm not much of drinker when reading/blogging. Tends to be a distraction to me from what I am doing so I tend to take a breather and go eat/drink if need be. But if I was to drink anything whilst reading/blogging it would probably be a nice cup of tea or tin of juice.

Review: Kitty takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn

My Rating: VG, P, B

Published: 2008
Publisher: Gollancz

Author's Website:

Purchase @

After being caught turning wolf on national television, Kitty retreats to a mountain cabin to recover, and to write her memoirs. But this is Kitty, so trouble is never far behind. Instead of Walden Pond, she gets Evil Dead.

It stats when someone leaves grotesque animal sacrifices on her front porch intended to curse her, then werewolf hunter Cormac shows up with an injured Ben O’Farrell, Kitty’s lawyer, slung over his cabin – can the situation get more tense? They’ll soon find out. When a wolf-like creature with glowing red eyes starts sniffing about the cabin, Kitty wonders if any of them will get out of the woods alive...

Kitty takes a Holiday is the third book in the Kitty Norville series by Carrie Vaughn. This book was full of action and had a plot twist that I didn’t see coming.

Kitty has decided to take a holiday from the radio show ‘The Midnight Hour’ and from being the official spokesperson for the supernatural. She has holed herself in a nice cabin in the woods which suits her wolf’s needs and her human need for personal space from the outside world. But things don’t remain tranquil for very long. Soon someone starts targeting Kitty by leaving dead animals on her doorstep and curses her.

I was quite impressed with Kitty’s character in this book as she has to start caring for someone who has been infected by lyncanthropy. She isn’t a lone wolf anymore, she now has a pack member to look after. I certainly didn’t expect the story to end how it did but I am not itching to read the next book in the series to find out how Kitty sorts it all out. Lawyer, Ben, and supernatural assassins’, Cormac, history becomes known after they spend some time with Kitty.

I think the story was very well written and the information flowed relatively smoothly. The action scenes were full on and I sometimes wondered if the characters and our heroine would come out alive.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and have enjoyed the series so far. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series and find out what Kitty gets up to next.

Review: Bloodfever by Karen Marie Moning

My Rating: E, P , B

Published: 2007
Publisher: Delacorte Press

Author's Website:

Purchase @

MacKayla Lane’s ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland’s shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets.

In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh – a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the worlds of the Fae and of Man. Pursued by Fae assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she cannot trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and irresistible men: V’lane, the insatiable Fae who can turn sensual arousal into an obsession for any woman, and the ever-inscrutable Jericho Barrons, a man as alluring as he is mysterious.

For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them...

Bloodfever is the second book in the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. This book was full of action, pent up sexual tension and mystery.

This book is quite distressing for Mac as she is still searching for her sisters’ murderer but hasn’t gotten any closer, an old enemy rears it’s very ugly head and tries to kill her. Her father appears demanding that she comes home with him and Mac gets quite close to Barrons, much closer than ever before. On top of all this, Mac and Barrons are yet to find the Sinsar Dubh. It’s very close by but it’s just ouwith their reach. How frustrating – especially when all Mac can do when she is near the evil book is collapse into an unconscious, defenceless heap.

I have absolutely fallen in love with this series and I can’t wait to find out what Mac is going to be getting up to next, in ‘Faefever’. It’s a very addictive series and it’s one that I have a hard time putting down. At every turn of the page there’s something new and interesting introduced, whether it’s an insight into Barron’s personal life or Mac having another near-death experience. She seems to be having a lot of those lately.

My favourite part of this book was a moment between Barrons and Mac about half way through the book. Mac is being totally and utterly her stubborn self but she shows she has some fight left in her yet and that she won’t let anyone control her, especially not Barrons. Barrons acts as if he is shocked by her forthwith stance but he is proud of her for it.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Bloodfever and will continue to read the series. Karen Marie Moning is a goddess when it comes to writing gripping, mysterious and hot fiction. I would highly recommend this series to any reader of the supernatural genre. I wasn’t keen on this series to start with, honestly, but I am so glad that I gave it a chance as I now love it.

Question:  How do you spread the word about your blog? (e.g. Social Networking sites, Book Blog Directories, comments on other blogs...)
My Answer:  When I first created my blog I had no idea as to how to get myself out there. I originally started writing reviews for but then decided to start up a blog. After vising a few blogsI found that bloggers took part in memes like this one and many others. This helped me find other blogs that had some great bloggers and reviews and through this I left comments and starting following the blogs I liked. In turn I took part in the weekly memes which helped me find followers and I appreciate every single one of them.
