About So Many Books, So Little Time

Hey! I'm Ana, I've been reading since I read my first Harry Potter Book about 9 years ago, which was Book 6, The Half-Blood Prince, I had seen all the movies up til that point but I just really wanted to read it before the movie came out. And reading The Half-Blood Prince really got me into Books, Thank you, J.K Rowlings for inspiring me and writing an amazing series like Harry Potter. Honestly, If it wasn't for reading that HP book, I probably wouldn't love reading as much as I do today. I got into blogging about 6 years ago, and I love it! I love sharing my thoughts on books, just as much as I love reading them, and I love learning things from the books I read. Hey, if you have any books that you think I might like please recommend them! All recommendations are happily welcome and appreciated!

~Rating: 4/5 stars~

Natasha’s life begins the night she is turned. With the ability to channel fire, a gift that only belongs to the witches, she becomes a terror—not only to the packs, but all the supernatural breeds. She’s known as Blaze. The deadliest vampire out there. But Blaze has a secret. She didn’t want to become a vampire, she needed to become a vampire, and her reasoning is lost. It died the night her human life did. Her conscience activates when two Varcolacs visit the covenant, looking for allies for the Great War.

What was it about the Varcolacs that made her grow a conscience? And will she be able to outrun it to keep the title of terror?

First of all, this cover is amazing!! It’s dark and beautiful just like this book!

I was hooked from the first page and didn’t even expect to be. This is a dark, sexy, fantasy with multiple supernatural beings; vampires, witches,werewolves. It’s a very fast paced novel and I enjoy that but if you’re into slow burn this might not be for you as it is action packed.

Immortal: Guardian of Monster is book one in her series. This is the first book that I have read by this author and I have to say that I really enjoyed this book.
I highly recommend it! I cant wait to read the rest of the series when it’s out!

{Review} The Watcher of the Night Sky by Rachel Pudsey


40365776The Watcher of the Night Sky by Rachel Pudsey

Kindle Edition, 352 pages

Published May 24th 2015 by Pronoun (first published December 28th 2014)

Goodreads

~Rating: 4/5 stars~

Fifteen-year-old Abigail Crumble was never much for talking about love and marriage and other such nonsense – no matter how often her boy obsessed best friend pestered her to do so. Or so she so adamantly proclaimed.

Yet on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, Abigail makes the biggest, most contradictory mistake of her life. She wishes on the stars for love, or even the smallest amount of attention, without knowing the full impact of such a feat.

Abigail soon finds her simple life in chaos as princes, men and mysterious creatures come to her door, each adamantly in love with her and refusing to leave her side.

Mixing fantasy and romance, The Watcher of the Night Sky begins the tale of one girl’s quest to rid herself of a curse that was definitely far more than she wished for.

Revised edition: This edition of The Watcher of the Night Sky includes editorial revisions.

~Review~

*a copy was provided by NetGalley*

Mhmm.. An interesting take on ‘when you wish upon a star’ and all the chaos that can happen. The beginning starts off kinda weird and slow… took me a while to get into…

The basic plot of this book is actually really interesting; great concept! It’s a love story—overwhelming love—and dark magic, family secrets, and of course teenage angst.

Abigail was a good character,  I was intrigued by her not being so typical of heroines.  The characters are all full of life and plenty of humor with Abigail serving us the serious side of things. We watch her grow as she struggles with the problems that arise in this story which demonstrates some of the great character development in this book.

Abigail decides to make a wish for her sixteenth birthday, she decides she wants love and attention but she gets so much more than what she bargained for. She finds herself being wooed by Princes, that just show up at her doorstep professing their endless love for her. But she doesn’t just get love and attention, Abigail becomes an obsession. Desperate to get away from the overwhelming romance, she decides to try to cancel the sudden wish…. this is where the real story begins! I don’t want to give too much away. But there are lots of twists & turns!

The Watcher of the Night Sky is definitely not your average YA/romance. I actually enjoyed it very much. I recommend it!

~Review~

Huh. Well this was something. It took me a while to get into the book, but I’m glad I finished it!

The Right Fit is a sports romance story, which I don’t usually enjoy but this one was different.

Maxine struggles to get her life back on track and heal her broken heart after she caught her fiance cheating on her. I really enjoyed Maxine’s character, she felt very real. But after a night out she bumps into Antony, they have no idea what is in store for them.  But things take a turn, in a good direction. Antony Laurent is a NHL star player.  The chemistry between them ignites into a blaze of passion which neither expected. It’s funny though, she has no idea who he really is… and he doesn’t tell her… until things between them get really serious, until it’s almost too late. 

I really enjoyed this book. Antony makes a great leading character and Maxine is a fun character. She’s a bit of a klutz but not in a cringeworthy way.

A sweet, sexy, funny read! I highly recommend it! Can’t wait to read more from this author!

Twisted Lies 4 by Sedona Venez

(Dirty Secrets, #4)

Publication date: September 19th 2018

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

From USA Today bestselling author Sedona Venez comes an edge-of-your-seat captivating, heart-wrenching, romantic suspense.

I knew he was evil, lust, and darkness personified.

He should have terrified me, but he didn’t because I was just as messed up in the head as he was.

I was a spider trapped in his web.

I didn’t have it all figured out.

What I did know was Core was no Prince Charming, and I, for damn sure, wasn’t a princess.

There would be no fairy-tale ending for us.

It would be hard work, and more importantly, it would be real.

Life couldn’t be all about tiaras and knights riding in to save the day.

This was my give. This was his take.

And there was no going back.

Till death do us part…
