    Calla has always welcomed war. But now that the final battle is upon her, there's more at stake than fighting. There's saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay's wrath. There's keeping Ansel safe, even if he's been branded a traitor. There's proving herself as the pack's alpha, facing unnamable horrors, and ridding the world of the Keepers' magic once and for all. And then there's deciding what to do when the war ends. If Calla makes it out alive, that is.

    Story

    This book seems rushed and very poorly written. The action scenes are all pretty much the same, boring and dull. The characters are the worst part of the book. Calla went from a strong and determined alpha to a manipulative and unbelievably selfish toerag. Shay has always been unpopular among readers, and after this book, I’m not sure anyone would feel sorry if Calla had let the bear have him. Honestly, Shay is the most whiny, obnoxious, annoying and selfish character ever! Nothing is right about this book. All the honorable characters suffered or died pointlessly, and all the worst characters got the happy ending. Overall, Bloodrose is a complete failure.

    No secret stays hidden forever. A phone call from an old friend sets mysterious book researcher Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mystery that has eluded him for centuries. Little does he suspect a young librarian holds the key to an ancient secret, nor could he expect the danger Beatrice De Novo would attract. Now both will follow a twisted maze leading from the archives of a university library, through the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a passion that could destroy them both.

    Story

    I honestly don't see what all the hype is about. The plotline is slow and predictable, very much like the adult version of Twilight. Another issue is with the female protagonist, Beatrice De Novo. I find her wimpy personality very annoying. She’s constantly crying and moping around feeling sorry for herself. I really hate seeing heroines that just sit around and do nothing while waiting to be rescued.

    Click your heels three times and say, "There's no place like Bloomies!" Katie Chandler's life is pure magic - literally. As an executive assistant at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., she's seen more than her share of fantastical occurrences. A mere Manhattan mortal, Katie is no wizard, but she's a wiz at exposing "hokum" pocus, cloaked lies, and deceptive enchantments. And she's fallen under the all-too-human spell of attraction to Owen, a hunky wizard and coworker. Owen, however, is preoccupied. Someone has broken into his office and disrupted top-secret files, and it reeks of an inside job.

    Don't miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture, in theaters August 2013. Danger intensifies for the Shadowhunters as the New York Times best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy comes to a close. If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it? The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose. Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment. Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy.

    Story

    After reading The Clockwork Prince, I seriously had no idea where the story was heading, nor did I know how I wanted it to end. The first two books were so amazing that I was afraid of being disappointed. We all knew that the story wasn't going to end well no matter what right? Well, you’ll find out soon enough if you haven't already. Cassie is a true expert on the element of surprise. The Clockwork Princess sent me on an emotional roller coaster like no other and wows me in every possible way! I'm sorry to see it end but hopefully we'll get to see some of the characters in City of Heavenly Fire.

    Story

    I never expected this series to be so entertaining and addictive when I first bought Switched. The characters are interesting and the plot twists aren’t as predictable as most in this genre. However, this book is not for everyone. It’s like The Princess Diaries with trolls in it. If you are looking for something lighthearted and fun, this book would be a great choice, but if you’re looking for something darker and more intense, I would suggest The Vampire Academy Series or The Infernal Devices Trilogy.

    Story

    I’ve read this story a hundred times before, and the sad thing is, this book isn’t even particularly well written. Ever is the most annoying character ever! She is boring, brainless, melodramatic and self-hating. She couldn’t imagine how someone as gorgeous and mysterious as Damen could fall in love with someone like her, normal and plain. Even though she lived in a huge mansion and was described as “beautiful” many times throughout the book, she was still constantly moping around and feeling bad about herself. Sounds familiar huh? All in all, it was a waste of time.

For eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse. For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation. On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I dont think of myself as a victim. I survived...."

    We can never fully understand how Jaycee managed to survive this horrible existence for 18 years, but through this memoir, we can get a glimpse of it. What surprised me the most was that those 18 years hadn’t turned Jaycee into a cynical person; instead, she is strong and positive and cherishes life more than anyone else. I admired her character and found great inspiration from her courage. Jaycee, you rock!

    Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students - children of the wealthy and powerful - carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

    I’d been waiting for ages for The Golden Lily to come out, so when it finally did, I downloaded it immediately! Again, Richelle Mead has failed to disappoint me. There are more character developments, more drama, more romance and more intrigue in this book. I couldn’t be more happy with how the story turned out!

    In The Golden Lily, Sydney still makes decisions based on what she believes is right, but now she is beginning to open up and so we get to see another side of her. Sydney is extremely intelligent, but her innocence in certain areas makes me want to smile at her indulgently. Adrian Ivashkov is simply the most endearing character ever created by Richelle! I love his fierce loyalty and smart-ass comments. He keeps surprising me and I’m so glad he has a much larger part in this book than in Bloodlines.

    I’m obsessed with this series and I wouldn’t change a thing about it!
    Now, who is up for the next book, The Indigo Spell?

    Grave Mercy is undoubtedly one of the best historical fantasies I have ever read! It is a perfect blend of magic, mystery, romance and twisty plot developments. Beautiful writings seem to come so effortlessly for Robin LaFevers. It’s impossible not to fall under the spell of the fascinating world she has created.

    The heroine, Ismae, is a killer nun to put it quite literally. She is strong, believable, intelligent and lacks the annoying qualities I find in so many female protagonists. The plot is fast-paced and thrilling that it had me holding my breath until the very end. Grave Mercy left me feeling giddy and satisfied. I can’t wait for the second book, Dark Triumph, to come out!
