Just a random post about nothing really... :D

Hey guys,
I know it's quiet this last few days but I'm sick and I had to go to school even though I wasn't feeling well and then I  took two days off... Funny thing is that it started snowing so much that a lot of roads in the whole country got closed and crazy stuff like that happened. So they canceled classes on Thursday afternoon and on Friday. There is still so much snow outside and it's so amazing to watch from my window.
Too bad I'll have to actually go outside tomorrow morning in 6:30 AM...
It's the last week of this school term and it's important to go, so it pretty much doesn't matter that I'm still sick.

I've started to read A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. It's at least 700 pages and I'm still in the begging but I start to realize that I am drawn to it. I get lost in the story and I'm pretty excited to read it. I won the book from Best of 2011 Giveaway Blog Hop at Short & Sweet Reviews. A big thank you to Van Pham for the great giveaway and for the awesome book!

I'm thinking of having a giveaway because I have an extra copy of the Clockwork Prince but I'll have to see how much it costs to send the book. It's pretty big and I may end up giving it to a friend.. I really wanted to be able to shop from the book depository but this dream didn't exactly turned out the way I wanted it. Anyway I'm still trying to find a way and if its not too expensive I'll have that giveaway.

Last thing... There are two more days to enter the Young Adult Giveaway hop that is hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Down the Rabbit Hole. There are 200+ blogs with awesome giveaways so make sure you check it out.


Okay so, this is the end of my random post. I will be posting a review of A discovery of Witches maybe sometimes next month and by then it might be quiet...
Have a great day and a great week!

Review: Bite Club (The Morganville Vampires #10) by Rachel Caine

Bite Club (The Morganville Vampires, #10)Bite Club by Rachel Caine
Goodreads summary:
After discovering that vampires populate her town, college student Claire Danvers knows that the undead just want to live their lives. But someone else wants them to get ready to rumble.

There's a new extreme sport getting picked up on the Internet: bare- knuckle fights pitting captured vampires against each other-or humans. Tracking the remote signal leads Claire- accompanied by her friends and frenemies-to discover that what started as an online brawl will soon threaten everyone in Morganville...



You can purchase the book from: The Book Depository.



My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My thoughts: 

Ohh there were so many things out of place in this book that I have no idea where to start.... I can't believe any of the things that happened actually happened. I mean it was crazy even for Morganville.

With every next book Claire and her friends have to overcome new and scarier obstacles and there is always something new in the book and in the way it's written or someone new..

In this book there were a few new things including some parts of the book were from Shane's P.O.V. and that was cool. He was at a dark and dangerous place in this book and it was really interesting to see things from his perspective. It gave us some insight of some of the action taking place around Morganville without having Claire messed up in it.

It's needles to say that they all got into huge trouble, some more than other, but the endings are always surprising. I mean... I always expect a happy ending or at least one that nobody dies and I've always got it so far but there is always something unexpected that just keeps things interesting.

I'm fascinated by this series. It's so much different from the books I've read and it's sweet and then it's dangerous and there is always something mysterious lurking in the shadows, waiting and plotting. There was a lot of jealousy here and I kind of started to form a different pairings of the characters in my mind. Not that that is going to happen, like EVER! but it's cool to see some cracks in the perfect smooth surface of the ice..

Ok I'm rambling now so I'll stop. I really enjoyed this book. It was amazing and I can't wait to start the next one(tomorrow). I'm kind of sad that there are only 2 books left(I exclude book 13 because I'll have to wait for that one like everyone else) and I'm going to have to go through a serious withdraw and I never take that very well.

Anyway awesome book, a great addition to the previous. It's a must read to all the Morganville Vampires' fans.

Review: Ghost Town (The Morganville Vampires #9) by Rachel Caine

Ghost Town (The Morganville Vampires, #9)Ghost Town by Rachel Caine
Goodreads summary:   
While developing a new system to maintain Morganville's defenses, student Claire Danvers discovers a way to amplify vampire mental powers. Through this, she's able to re-establish the field around this vampire-infested Texas college town that protects it from outsiders.

But the new upgrades have an unexpected consequence: people inside the town begin to slowly forget who they are-even the vampires. Soon, the town's little memory problem has turned into a full-on epidemic. Now Claire needs to figure out a way to pull the plug on her experiment- before she forgets how to save Morganville...

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



My thoughts:

Oh I don't know what to say about this one. I literally just finished it and it's late and I want to sleep but after an ending like this...

At the beginning I didn't see where things are going and I had absolutely no idea or even guesses what could go wrong... It was kind of slow because the ending of Kiss of death wasn't big of a cliffhanger. It felt like an end to that chapter of their lives and going back to Morganville to something new.

Well that was new because it never even crossed my mind that things could go that bad... and ohh it was BAD!

I won't say a thing about what the disaster was this time because the change will catch you off guard and that magnifies the excitement.

I won't write a long review about this book even that it flew straight to Number 1 of the series. It was amazing, it was interesting and very very mysterious. There were a lot of unexpected twists and turns and so much emotion. I loved it, every single word of it. Yeah there were a few moments when I needed to roll my eyes because our favorite group was acting too inappropriate for the seriousness of the situation they were in but hey it was worth it so who cares.

Great book, best one so far I think!

Review: A walk to remember by Nicholas Sparks

A Walk to RememberA Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
Goodreads summary: 
Every April, when the wind blows from the sea and mingles with the scent of lilacs, Landon Carter remembers his last year at Beaufort High. It was 1958, and Landon had already dated a girl or two. He even swore that he had once been in love. Certainly the last person in town he thought he'd fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town's Baptist minister. A quiet girl who always carried a Bible with her schoolbooks, Jamie seemed content living in a world apart from the other teens. She took care of her widowed father, rescued hurt animals, and helped out at the local orphanage. No boy had ever asked her out. Landon would never have dreamed of it. Then a twist of fate made Jamie his partner for the homecoming dance, and Landon Carter's life would never be the same. Being with Jamie would show him the depths of the human heart and lead him to a decision so stunning it would send him irrevocably on the road to manhood...

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My thoughts:
I usually don't read chick lit or anything that doesn't have some fantasy part in it, really... I'm just not interested it reading about other people's problems if there isn't some fantasy involved.. Anyway, whatever my preferences for books are, nothing matters when I pick one of Nicholas Sparks' books. I forget that I don't like that genre or that I want evil creatures of the night lurking around. He creates a wonderful worlds in his books and they just suck you in and it's impossible not to like them. At least for me it is.

I started this book and then I realized that I've watched the movie to it(difference in the translation...) but it was already loved it too much to let go. I read it fairly slow because school was getting it the way but I loved it. It's one of those stories that make you want to cry yourself to sleep but it's so good you can't put it down.

The story is amazing. I just was moved by it and even if there are some not so good parts I can't bring myself to remember any.

Yeah I don't want to repeat myself any more so I'll say I loved it and leave it at that.

Review: Kiss of Death (The Morganville Vampires #8) by Rachel Caine

Kiss Of Death (The Morganville Vampires, #8)Kiss Of Death by Rachel Caine
Goodreads summary:
Vampire musician Michael Glass has attracted the attention of a big- time producer who wants to cut a demo and play some gigs-which means Michael will have to enter the human world. For this, he's been assigned escorts that include both a dangerous immortal as well as Michael's all-too-human friends. And with that mix of personalities, this is going to be a road trip from hell..

You can purchase the book from: The Book Depository.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My thoughts and mostly ramblings about this one... maybe even some spoilers.. sorry!

Wow I now I've said that previous books have been different but this just has little to do with what we know.

It is a totally different settings and the story is of a road trip gone bad. Why I thought that things would go better than usual and I was really surprised by most of the things that happened. I mean there were very unexpected things....

More and more, Claire grows to be someone we don't know. She's more fierce than ever and she stands up to vampires when even Shane shuts up and stays quiet. I never thought she'll grow so much that she'd make Oliver laugh and would have such interesting chats with the vampires but as Amelie's pet(which she is not anymore.. well kinda..)she got closer to the vampires than she ever expected. She got to know them, or at least some of their sides(some good and some bad).

I really like that about her and I kind of see her as a vampire maybe somewhere in the far future. Also it gives us a better view of the vampires, different from those we get from Shane and Eve. I know they have had a harder time and more experience but Clare sees them more clearly and she sees the good in them no matter how deep that good part of them is!

I missed Myrnin in this book because he was there only at the beginning and then he was left behind. I can't wait to read the next book to see him again.

We saw a different side of Oliver. He wasn't exactly nice but he was there when he was most needed and I really enjoyed reading those parts. I don't know if he's going to go back to being an ass when they all go back to Morganville but I really liked reading about him in this book.

Like I said earlier( or more like rambled) the book has some very unexpected moments and it's not like and attack from a vamp in a dark alley.. It's an attack but you'll never see it coming or at least I didn't!

I will stop now because I already said too much. I hope I haven't spoiled the fun out of reading the book because that was was really good and it is definitely something new.

I forgot to mention Michael.. Oh I love this one. Always there when you need him looking like and avenging angel with fangs.. He and Shane are awesome in their roles and boyfriends even though there were some bumps along the way but hey where is the fun in a unnaturally perfect relationship.

Oh okay, I'll leave you to the book now. I loved it and I think that it's going to be liked by the Morganville Vampires' fans...


I just love the cover way too much to re-size the photo...!

Review: Fade Out (The Morganville Vampires #7) by Rachel Caine

Fade Out (The Morganville Vampires, #7)Fade Out by Rachel Caine
Goodreads summary:
Without the evil vampire Bishop ruling over the town of Morganville, the resident vampires have made major concessions to the human population. With their newfound freedoms, Claire Danvers and her friends are almost starting to feel comfortable again...

Now Claire can actually concentrate on her studies, and her friend Eve joins the local theatre company. But when one of Eve's castmates goes missing after starting work on a short documentary, Eve suspects the worst. Claire and Eve soon realize that this film project, whose subject is the vampires themselves, is a whole lot bigger-and way more dangerous-than anyone suspected. 


You can purchase the book from: The Book Depository.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My thoughts:

I read this book far too fast and it seemed very short. I enjoyed reading it very, very much, though. It was the first time I've read it and it was amazing. I have forgotten the thrill from not knowing how things going to end.. It was very new and mysterious and just like Myrnin I enjoy mysteries!

The book and all that happened definitely put the characters in situations they haven't been in before and it was very interesting and mostly hilarious to see how they react to them.

I mean... Claire and jealousy didn't seem to fit but, boy did that made me laugh... :D It was amazing. She had plenty of reasons to be jealous too...

There of course was a big portion of bad things too. New enemies, some old ones just stronger than everyone thought.. I loved the bond between Claire and Myrnin.. It's not something romantic.. no, this is a different kind of love and it's getting stronger and I love reading the parts where those two speak to each other.. It's too funny to miss..

I also love Shane and Claire as a couple. They relationship is more serious than I expected and I do hope they stay together. Everything seems fine for now but in this book The author showed us just how easily a relationship could end and I won't take anything else for granted.

I do enjoy the series more and more with every read book and I can't wait to start the next one(that's why I'll start it almost immediately).

Review: Carpe Corpus (The Morganville Vampires #6) by Rachel Caine

Carpe Corpus (The Morganville Vampires, #6)Carpe Corpus by Rachel Caine
Goodreads summary:
In the small college town of Morganville, vampires and humans lived in (relative) peace-until all the rules got rewritten when the evil vampire Bishop arrived, looking for the lost book of vampire secrets. He's kept a death grip on the town ever since. Now an underground resistance is brewing, and in order to contain it, Bishop must go to even greater lengths. He vows to obliterate the town and all its inhabitants-the living and the undead. Claire Danvers and her friends are the only ones who stand in his way. But even if they defeat Bishop, will the vampires ever be content to go back to the old rules, after having such a taste of power?

You can purchase the book from: The Book Depository.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My thoughts:

I started school after a two weeks break and now it'd take me a little bit more time to read the books but I will read them no matter what.


This book was another great addition to the already awesome series. It wasn't as dynamic as the previous two but it was good for an end of that part of the characters' lives. What Bishop did was done now and everyone would have to live with the consequences of their choices...


It was sad as and ending to something would be.. It was the end for some of the characters and it was really sad to let go of them. I don't know what will happen now because that's how far I went last time and it's all a mystery to me now... I am very excited to see how this continues.


This book was ... I keep repeating the word 'end' because that's how it feels. So many things changed in this book that it's impossible for things to go back to the way they were.


Morganville will change, the people in it already are changed and I have a feeling that whatever comes next will be new to both the readers and the characters in the book...


I definitely enjoyed reading this book even though it had a slower, sadder pace.. It was something different and yet familiar and it was a very very good book...


It's not a 6 stars book like the last few and it's not exactly a 5 but it is a 4.5 so 5 stars it is! It was great and every fan of the series should read it now! I know I loved it!

Review: Bridesmaids by Jane Costello

BridesmaidsBridesmaids by Jane Costello
Goodreads summary:
Four weddings. Three disgruntled ex-boyfriends in the congregation. Two wayward 'chicken-fillet' boob enhancers. And one gorgeous man, who has just noticed them escaping over the top of her dress ... Evie finds that it's tough being a bridesmaid.

You can purchase the book from: The Book Depository.


My rating: 2 of 5 stars

My thoughts:
This book genre is not something I really like... Or at least this book wasn't. I don't know what really was, the book was a good read. It was interesting and all but it didn't really grab me. The most interesting part was toward the end and that's when everything happened. The culmination was the strongest part of the book. The beginning was more of an introduction, too long one...

Well I guess I'll stuck with fantasy and I won't start books I originally picked for my mom...

There is a big BUT because I don't appreciate this genre very much. I love fantasy and this is as far from it as it gets so don't judge the book by my review. It was good, I just didn't like it very much.


Here's the Bulgarian cover which is pretty cool:

Review: Lord of Misrule ( The Morganville Vampires, #5) by Rachel Caine

Lord of Misrule (Morganville Vampires, #5)Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine
Goodreads summary:
In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans coexist in (relatively) bloodless harmony. Then comes Bishop, the master vampire who threatens to abolish all order, revive the forces of the evil dead, and let chaos rule. But Bishop isn't the only threat.

Violent black cyclone clouds hover, promising a storm of devastating proportions as student Claire Danvers and her friends prepare to defend Morganville against elements both natural and unnatural.


You can purchase the book from: The Book Depository.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My thoughts:

I ... I don't know what to say, thing or do right about now.

I just finished the book and I am stunned! Right now I'm willing to say that the book wasn't all that exciting because of the ending.. The book was pretty great with a lot of twists and turns along the way but the end was a totally crazy and awesome. I had completely forgotten what was going to happen and I was very surprised and I still can't believe it.

I have some flashes of the next book but nothing concrete and I'm dying to find out what's going to happen!

This book was great. I loved it because it was just as intense and brutal as the previous. The pace is going faster by the minute and so much stuff has happened. It is so much different than the first book. You just can't recognize the town and the people. The characters have grown so much over the last few months. I am happy to see how strong some of the them have become and how the fight starts to come naturally to them.

The storyline to this book was on the battlefield and it involves so much powerplay. Everybody was just a pawn in the chess game of Amelie and Mr. Bishop.

I could go on and on but it won't do justice to the book so you have to read it to find out what I'm talking about.

The ending was incredibly sad and totally unexpected and I am surprised at the outcome of the events. I guess the fight's not over yet and there is so much more to come.

I can't wait for the next book(witch in my case is a few clicks away since I have it on an ebook.

So this book and the previous totally deserve 6 stars compared to the rest but oh they are all so good!

Review: Feast of Fools (The Morganville Vampires #4) by Rachel Caine

Feast of Fools (The Morganville Vampires, #4)Feast of Fools by Rachel Caine
Goodreads summary:
In the town of Morganville, vampires and humans live in relative peace. Student Claire Danvers has never been convinced, though especially with the arrival of Mr. Bishop, an ancient, old-school vampire who cares nothing about harmony. What he wants from the town's living and its dead is unthinkably sinister. It's only at a formal ball, attended by vampires and their human dates, that Claire realizes the elaborately evil trap he's set for Morganville.

You can purchase the book from: The Book Depository.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My thoughts: (I tried not to include any spoilers but..oh there still might be some)
Well this book was something new, It was different then the others. More intense and definitely more scary than those before.

We know what the citizens of Morganville have to go trough on daily basis. Who would have guessed that those problems with the town vampires was something not so bad. One thing's for sure, they are wishing to go back in time and be happy with how things are.

Not just the people but the town itself started to recognize the danger everyone's in and that was showing from the empty streets and the the strange feeling you get when your outside. Well that's what I understood from Claire's explanation anyway...

The stillness surrounding everyone was kind of unearthly...

Mr Bishop is the new villain in town and there's noting better to unite two enemies as a third common enemy.

Reading the book was strange because we see different sides of people we thought we knew. It's like a whole new story starts to form with all the new stuff...

The end of the book was a beginning of something too big to describe. I'm not sure what is to come now even though I've read the next book. I just don't want to remember and I want to enjoy it as much as I can. The end was a semi big cliff hanger. More like an end of a chapter than of a novel but I'm sure it was an awful waiting period to those who read the books as they were coming out.

I enjoyed reading this book the most of all because it involves more powerful characters than we've seen so far. Those new people in town are the worst of the worst and they are scary and they bring hell with them. The fight is still going so I'm about to start the next book.

And this was the best book so far from the series and it deserves a lot of attention.

I would give it 6 stars if I could! It deserves them...

Review: Midnight Alley (The Morganville Vampires #3) by Rachel Caine

Midnight Alley (The Morganville Vampires, #3)Midnight Alley by Rachel Caine

Summary (from the book jacket)

Morganville’s such a nice place to live… And die. If you don’t mind that sort of thing.When Claire Danvers learnt that her college town was run by vampires, she did what any intelligent, self-preserving student would do: she applied for a transfer and stocked up on garlic. The transfer is no longer an option, but the garlic may come in handy.Now Claire has pledged herself to Amelie, the most powerful vampire in town. The protection her contract secures does little to reassure her friends. All of a sudden people are turning up dead, a stalker resurfaces from Claire’s past, and an ancient bloodsucker extends a chilling invitation for private lessons in his secluded home. 

You  can purchase the book from: The Book Depository.

 
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My thoughts :

Okay, so I just finished the book and I'm just way too excited.

There isn't much I could say about it because I don't want to reveal the story, like I did in the previous reviews.

I'll be repeating myself when I say that the book was great. It has that same fast pace like the the first two books and it's just as interesting with some frightening moments and then some incredibly sweet ones and then there were the completely unexpected ones. It is a great mix of emotions and actions and crazy behavior and more... always more!

I enjoyed the story even more because we go even deeper than before. More secrets are revealed and new characters are coming to town.

I certainly was enjoying the presence of Myrnin and of that we had a lot. He is very interesting character to read about. Scary, crazy and incredibly brilliant but his mind is wasting away and it's just sad to see him like that.

The ending was a huge cliff hanger and it stunned me for a while. It surely promises an amazing beginning to the fourth book. I will be starting that one very soon because this one ended too quickly!

I won't go on like that because it doesn't matter what I say about the book. You need to read it to see for yourself how good it was and how good the series get.

Well that's it. You guys should really consider reading the books!

Review: The Dead Girls' Dance (The Morganville Vampires #2) by Rachel Caine

The Dead Girls' Dance (The Morganville Vampires, #2)The Dead Girls' Dance by Rachel Caine
Goodreads summary:
Claire has her share of challenges. Like being a genius in a school that favors beauty over brains; homicidal girls in her dorm, and finding out that her college town is overrun with the living dead. On the up side, she has a new boyfriend with a vampire-hunting dad. But when a local fraternity throws the Dead Girls' Dance, hell is really going to break loose.

You can purchase the book from: The Book Depository.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My thoughts: BE AWARE THAT THERE ARE SOME MINOR SPOILERS!

I just finished re-reading the book and... Oh my! I've forgotten how amazing the story was. I just loved going back in Claire's world and reliving the horrors around her trough her and her friends.

This book has even more action and it starts right from where the first ended. That was good because there was no time gap between the books.

And here it was all about the sacrifices you're willing to make to save the ones you love.

Claire fought a lot and very hard but in the end she couldn't escape the grip Morganville has over her.

All four of the main characters had to make some pretty tough choices and that was the most interesting and important part of the book.

I really enjoyed going trough the pages not being able to stop. I new that things ended well because it's the second time I read the book but even that didn't make it less entertaining and awesome!

It's very different from the first one and in a lot way it's better. Characters are growing stronger and in the same time they go in deeper waters and they just start to realize what forces are at play.

I can't really describe the book better. It was intense and with a fast steady pace. A lot of strange stuff happened but it all worked out in the end just to take the characters in a whole different direction.

The end wasn't much of a cliff hanger. It was simple but with a great meaning and a promise to more interesting things to come. If not anything else, Eve, Shane and Michael wont be happy about something Claire did in the end so just that is a promise of a big fight but too late... :D

Oh I loved it. I'm going to start the third book now!

And this one is a must read to everyone!

Review: Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires #1) by Rachel Caine

Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires, #1)Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
Goodreads summary: From the author of the popular Weather Warden series comes the debut of an exciting new series set in Morganville, Texas, where you would be well advised to avoid being out after dark.

College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation. When Claire heads off-campus, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. Her new roommates don't show many signs of life, but they'll have Claire's back when the town's deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.


You can purchase the book from: The Book Depository.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My thoughts: THERE ARE SPOILERS SO BE AWARE!!!
Oh don't I just love this book. This is the second time I read it and it's even more amazing now. I realized that I've forgotten key moments to the book and it felt good to refresh my memory.

The book is quite interesting and it reveals a world different from most I've read about vampires. Usually you'd expect no one to know about them. That's the thing about vampires, they stay hidden. This book shatters this idea and shows us a world where some people know. I would say a lot normal, everyday humans know.

It's really all about the town the action takes place. It's pretty much hell on earth for the locals and the death for some of the student of the local university.

Claire is one of the students of the university. Sixteen and too smart for her own good she is fighting for her life for the best part of the book.

There are also Shane, cute and fierce, Eve, the goth girl that is as vulnerable as everyone underneath all the makeup, and Michael, the angelic looking ghost that owns the Glass house. Pretty wicked group of people, everyone with their own thing and the live in this crazy town trying to protect themselves and each other every way they can.

I loved reading this book for the first time and now the second because it was different from what I'm used to. There are a lot of twist and turns awaiting the characters.

The book show us a possible reaction of people knowing about vampires(if they really existed) and it's not the typical pink colored version of a girl in love. The people in Morganville actually know about the vampires and they are terrified and they have worked out a way to protect themselves. They keep their heads down and turn around like you don't exist if you're in trouble.

There's a whole system at work there to keep the vampires from killing every single person in the town. It's quite interesting to learn all about it through Claire, who has absolutely no idea what she's gotten herself into.

The book is pretty much about her survival in the town and all the things she had to go trough to help her friends.

Once you're in Morganville and you know too much, you simply can't leave!



The end was a killer cliffhanger and I really love it that I read the book when they were 12 of them published. I don't think I could have waited to see what happens.

All in all I loved it and I'm going to start the next one immediately.

It's a must read for all the vampire books lovers out there.

I've re-read and reviewed this book as part of the Morganville Vampires Reading Challenge 2012.
