Pub. Date: July 23rd 2013
Publisher: Simon Pulse


When Bea meets Beck, she knows instantly that he’s her kind of crazy. Sweet, strong, kinda-messed-up Beck understands her like no one else can. He makes her feel almost normal. He makes her feel like she could fall in love again.

But despite her feelings for Beck, Bea can’t stop thinking about someone else: a guy who is gorgeous and magnetic... and has no idea Bea even exists. But Bea knows a lot about him. She spends a lot of time watching him. She has a journal full of notes. Some might even say she’s obsessed.

Bea tells herself she’s got it all under control. But this isn’t a choice, it’s a compulsion. The truth is, she’s breaking down...and she might end up breaking her own heart.

Warm Bodies Parody

I don't know about you guys, but I love the Hillywood Show parodies, especially their Twilight Saga and Vampire Diaries ones. So when I saw they had made one for Warm Bodies, I had to watch it. No, I haven't read the book. I know! Shame on me! BUT I did watch the movie the other day and convinced everyone in my house to watch it just so I would have an excuse to replay it to death. That's how much I loved it. Hopefully I'll get around to reading the book soon.

Here's the video.

(Goodreads Review) Enigma by Christine Fonseca

EnigmaEnigma by Christine Fonseca

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It feels like forever since I last entered Christine Fonseca's Requiem world, but it's finally back!

As always, Christine's gift for excellent storytelling pulled me right into the narrator's mind. This time I got to experience the Requiem world from Lorelei's point of view and I have to say it was quite a journey. Enigma is filled with the characteristic heart-wrenching, nerve-wrecking storytelling I have come to expect, and love, in her books. It was definitely a great and welcomed addition to the story.

(Goodreads Review) Doctors in the Wedding by Gina Wilkins

Doctors in the WeddingDoctors in the Wedding by Gina Wilkins

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Out-of-town bridesmaid Madison Baker was looking forward to a fun wedding of one of her oldest friends. She never thought she'd meet a groomsman that made even her measured mind-of-a-psychiatrist spin.
Of course, he was the one guy who was off-limits.

Steadfast Dr. Jason D'Alessandro was wedded to his work and his patients. Why, even the bride's beautiful sister couldn't turn his head! Still, stunning Madison stirred his impulsive, romantic side, although she insisted that their hot-and-heavy romance remain top secret.

But this was one forbidden weekend fling that might just be for keeps….


Actual rating 2.5

I always get sucked in into reading these type of romances when I want something that will guarantee me a "happily ever after". And anyone who has read their fair share of these knows the female always gets her "prince charming" one way or another.

But halfway through the book, I always get slapped with the reminder of why I swore I'd never read one of these again. The women in these books, no matter how accomplished they are, always seem to revert to being awkward teenagers and lose all their self confidence over one man. A man who is almost always being an outright douche. Although Jason does not fit the douche-bag category, he was actually very sweet, Madison does fit the "female loses all self esteem" one and that annoyed me. I mean, he's telling her something even before he knows everything and she's still causing unnecessary drama all by herself. Breathes.

Anyways, I know this won't be the last one I'll read. It's a vicious circle for me, but I think readers who don't get bored by my biggest pet peeve mentioned above will enjoy it.

“Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than you... no one.”

Those were some of Rhode’s last words to me. The last time he would pronounce his love. The last time I would see his face. It was the first time in 592 years I could take a breath. Lay in the sun. Taste. Rhode sacrificed himself so I, Lenah Beaudonte, could be human again. So I could stop the blood lust. I never expected to fall in love with someone else that wasn’t Rhode. But Justin was... daring. Exciting. More beautiful than I could dream.

I never expected to be sixteen again... then again, I never expected my past to come back and haunt me...

ARC Review: Broken by A.E. Rought

Title: Broken
Series: Broken #1
Author: A.E. Rought
Pub. Date: January 8th, 2013
Publisher: Strange Chemistry


Imagine a modern spin on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein where a young couple’s undying love and the grief of a father pushed beyond sanity could spell the destruction of them all.

A string of suspicious deaths near a small Michigan town ends with a fall that claims the life of Emma Gentry’s boyfriend, Daniel. Emma is broken, a hollow shell mechanically moving through her days. She and Daniel had been made for each other, complete only when they were together. Now she restlessly wanders the town in the late Fall gloom, haunting the cemetery and its white-marbled tombs, feeling Daniel everywhere, his spectre in the moonlight and the fog.

When she encounters newcomer Alex Franks, only son of a renowned widowed surgeon, she’s intrigued despite herself. He’s an enigma, melting into shadows, preferring to keep to himself. But he is as drawn to her as she is to him. He is strangely…familiar. From the way he knows how to open her locker when it sticks, to the nickname she shared only with Daniel, even his hazel eyes with brown flecks are just like Daniel’s. The closer they become, though, the more something inside her screams there’s something very wrong with Alex Franks.

And when Emma stumbles across a grotesque and terrifying menagerie of mangled but living animals within the walls of the Franks’ estate, creatures she surely knows must have died from their injuries, she knows.

ARC Review: The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark

Title: The Demon Lover
Series: Fairwick Chronicles #1
Author: Carol Goodman, Juliet Dark (Pseudonym)
Pub. Date: December 27th, 2011
Publisher: Ballantine Books


Since accepting a teaching position at remote Fairwick College in upstate New York, Callie McFay has experienced the same disturbingly erotic dream every night: A mist enters her bedroom, then takes the shape of a virile, seductive stranger who proceeds to ravish her in the most toe-curling, wholly satisfying ways possible. Perhaps these dreams are the result of her having written the bestselling book The Sex Lives of Demon Lovers. Callie’s lifelong passion is the intersection of lurid fairy tales and Gothic literature—which is why she’s found herself at Fairwick’s renowned folklore department, living in a once-stately Victorian house that, at first sight, seemed to call her name.

But Callie soon realizes that her dreams are alarmingly real. She has a demon lover—an incubus—and he will seduce her, pleasure her, and eventually suck the very life from her. Then Callie makes another startling discovery: Her incubus is not the only mythical creature in Fairwick. As the tenured witches of the college and the resident fairies in the surrounding woods prepare to cast out the demon, Callie must accomplish something infinitely more difficult—banishing this supernatural lover from her heart.

Author: Karen Marie Moning
Pub. Date: October 30,  2012
Publisher:  Delacorte Press

What if you knew when someone was going to die?
The year is 1 AWC—After the Wall Crash. The Fae are free and hunting us. It’s a war zone out there, and no two days are alike. I’m Dani O’Malley, the chaos-filled streets of Dublin are my home, and there’s no place I’d rather be. 

Dani “Mega” O’Malley plays by her own set of rules—and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she’s one of the rare humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.

Dani’s ex–best friend, MacKayla Lane, wants her dead, the terrifying Unseelie princes have put a price on her head, and Inspector Jayne, the head of the police force, is after her sword and will stop at nothing to get it. What’s more, people are being mysteriously frozen to death all over the city, encased on the spot in sub-zero, icy tableaux. 

When Dublin’s most seductive nightclub gets blanketed in hoarfrost, Dani finds herself at the mercy of Ryodan, the club’s ruthless, immortal owner. He needs her quick wit and exceptional skill to figure out what’s freezing Fae and humans dead in their tracks—and Ryodan will do anything to ensure her compliance.

Dodging bullets, fangs, and fists, Dani must strike treacherous bargains and make desperate alliances to save her beloved Dublin—before everything and everyone in it gets iced.
