Summery: Schuyler Van Alen is starting to get more comfortable with her newfound vampire powers, but she still has many unanswered questions. A trip to Italy in search of her grandfather only serves to make things more confusing. What secrets are the leaders of The Committee hiding? Meanwhile, back in New York, preparations are feverishly underway for the famous Four Hundred Ball. In true Blue Blood fashion, the ball is totally fab, complete with masks-and hidden behind this masquerade is a revelation that will change the course of a young vampire’s destiny.

The thrilling sequel in Melissa de la Cruz’s vampire mythology has all the glamour, attitude, and vampire lore that made the first book a hit.

My Review: Masquerade is the second book in the Blue Bloods Series. Blue Bloods are Vampires who live for decades but when they reach a certain time they regenerate into new cell body’s. Some blue bloods are archangels who chooses to be Blue Bloods. Schuyler is a new Blue Blood who is half human. There is different kinds of Vampires : Blue bloods and Sliver Bloods, Sliver Bloods are angels who fall from the heaven when they chooses to side with Lucifer himself. Sliver bloods are evil and the only ones who can kill a blue bloods. Humans are called Red bloods by the blue bloods, some Red bloods know about blue bloods and even help kept them secret from the rest of the human race.

The Book starts with Schuyler and Oliver who went to Italy to find her Grandfather after her Grandmother was killed by a sliver blood in the first book. She was Told that her Grandfather knew the secrets to fight the sliver bloods.

Schuyler has this old spirit feel about her. She is young but has this wisdom and beauty about her. She Loves jack but she also has a connection with Oliver. Schuyler has urges for blood and needs a human to be hers or she could be put in a coma like her mother, and the only to do so is with Oliver but it changes things between the two.

The Book does have a weird love triangle thing going on but it’s really complicated. The Book isn’t all about love. I liked how the book wasn’t all about the love triangle but more to what the story was about, fighting the sliver bloods and why. Masquerade still has all the supernatural Twist that you got in the first book, but more intense.

The ending was a crazy ride with lots of suppresses, and huge cliffhanger that left you wanting more. Fantastic read. I really wanted to find out more on whats gonna happen between Schuyler and Jack. I just want more.

Summery:Pain shoots through my head. Fireworks. Explosions. All inside my brain. The white world goes dark and I know what’s about to happen.

Zara White suspects there’s a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She’s also obsessed with phobias. And it’s true, she hasn’t exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane…but Zara’s pretty sure her mom just can’t deal with her right now.

She couldn’t be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara’s overactive imagination. In fact, he’s still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There’s something not right – not human – in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.

In this creepy, compelling breakout novel, Carrie Jones delivers romance, suspense, and a creature you never thought you’d have to fear.

My Review: I was recommended the book from a few people, who also said i would love the series. I seen a few people reading it, so i had to see what the hype was about. I really did like how each chapter list a Phobia and what it means, it made it where i couldn’t wait to get to the next chapter just to see other phobias. The cover is simple but sometimes less is more, i like simple sometimes, and i thought the cover was pretty.

The story is an one point of view, Zara is all about saving the world and doing whats right. She moved to Maine after she went threw a depressed stage when her Father died ( who was actually her step dad ). She discovers about Pixies and Weres, Weres are like werewolfs and other type of animal, they also are called swifters. The writing is simple, i like that because then the story doesn’t get to boring with too much detailed, the book is easy to follow. I thought the story was nice touch, i really like the concept of it.

After finishing Need, i now have Hylephobia ( fear of woods ), thanks Carrie. I really like Zara and Nick but besides them my favorite character is Issie, Why? Well because she likes hello kitty, and i am obsessed with hello kitty.

I really liked the series and Highly recommend it to any super

Summery: 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. In this remarkable final installment of the Nightshade trilogy, international bestselling author Andrea Cremer crafts a dynamic novel with twists and turns that will keep you breathless until its final pages.

( May Contain Spoilers )

My Review: I love the nightshade series. I have been waiting to get my hands on Bloodrose for some time now, and i finally bought it. Andrea Cremer is defiantly on my top 10 list of favorite authors. She is amazing.

Bloodrose is a page tuner, i read it in only 2 days if that. It was a crazy ride, i went threw so much emotional pain..agh. There is a love triangle in the series between Call and Ren and Shay. Calla loves them both but in different ways. You get torn between the two. I never did pick a side cause i loved them both in many ways ( which makes finishing the book even sadder ). The romance is intense, like the whole time i was chewing my nails to the core. There is funny moments between Conner and Mason that i loved! it was a good relive from all the drama that was needed, they are the most funnest character threw out the whole series. There is also a lot of action and adventures that will never leave you bored.

Getting more towards the end we get in a epic battle, and let me tell you, it will rip out your heart. At one point i wanted to throw the book out the window cause i couldn’t handle the emotional pain. My feelings are still in pain as i write this. The ending will shock you.

There is a lot of characters in this book that i loved. Like Ethen, first he was this huge d-bag but then we slowly see him being more relaxed with the wolfs and he also has a good ending, at least i think so.

I really thought the cover for Bloodrose is so much better then the last 2, it’s really pretty and really red.  Andrea Cremer proves once again that she can write, i loved Bloodrose another favorite out of the nightshade series. Read Rift and Rise also part of the nightshade Series.

Summery: The first book in Alyson Noël’s extraordinary new Immortals series. Enter an enchanting new world, where true love never dies…
After a horrible accident claims the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people’s auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone’s entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact to suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school — but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.

Damen is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He’s the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head – wielding a magic so intense, it’s as though he can peer straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she’s left with more questions than answers. And she has no idea just who he really is – or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is that she’s falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.

My Review: I Don’t know what is about Alyson Noels book that i just can’t get myself to enjoy her series.  I wasn’t really a fan of her Soul Seekers series, but I enjoy the soul seekers more then i did Evermore. you can tell this was her first series, it shows a lot. The writing was really hard to read, not that is was bad but it was just really boring. The book just feels like a big jumble of a mess. I couldn’t connect myself to this book at all. There was a few times where i kept catching myself skipping parts in the book cause it was just getting boring. and i notice that the book jumped to one thing to the next and i hate when Authors do that. I just didn’t enjoy this book at all, and i really tried to like it, i mean i REALLY tried my damn hardest to enjoy this book, but it just didn’t happen.

I felt a little confused at some parts in the book a lot of it just didn’t make any since at all. I was Worried that never was just gonna be like the Soul Seekers and i was gonna hate it, but after finishing the book i realized the Soul seekers is an improvement, Evermore sucks compared to The Soul Seekers.

And i hated the romance in this book, i can’t stand the love interest in this like if i was ever i would been like hell no with this guy, he annoys me and i can’t stand him. Tho my favorite character is the whole damn book was Miles, i did enjoy him, it seem like he was the only that had his head straight( and the fact he reminds me of a friend i once knew ).

Evermore kinda reminds me of The Fallen series without the angel part, both book kinda have the same concept of repeating lives kinda thing, but the fallen series is a 100x better then evermore.

I get what Alyson was trying to write, it just didn’t come out that way. I understand first books can be the hardest.

Summery: When Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder. Much less a murder commited by three teenagers covered with odd markings. This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons–and keeping the odd werewolves and vampires in line. It’s also her first meeting with gorgeous, golden-haired Jace. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in an ordinary mundane like Clary? And how did she suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…

My Review: I Have already read the Whole series but i wanted to re-read it for the upcoming movie! only only a few days left. First i want to talk about the queen, YES, the queen. Miss Cassandra Claire is a freaking Legend. Everything she touches turns to gold. Her Writing is amazing and her use of quotes in each chapter always puts a smile on my face, and i love in each book we don’t just read in one person point of view. All her Characters she writes will always have a spot in my heart.

City of Bones Starts off with Clary and Simon at the Pandemonium club, and that’s when we Discover all the awesome thing in this book. there is 5 Books out so far in the The Mortal Instruments and more to come! There is also the Infernal Devices Series that is part of TMI. and soon we will have The Dark Artifices.

After Finishing reading the book i confirmed that I.STILL.LOVE! The Mortal Instruments. i will always be a fan even when i am old and can’t walk no more. The Mortal Instruments is amazing. And Have i mention that i am in love with Simon? No? Well i am he is mine! i call dibs. I am happy i re-read City of Bones and now i am soo ready for the movie even got my gear.

If you haven’t read the series then you are missing out simply as that. There is Vampires, Werewolfs, WARLOCKS!, Demons and even Fairies, and of course Half Angels. I just really love the twist and turns in city of bones, it is always making me want to chew my nails off every time i will never get over it. and now i am dyeing for City of heavenly Fire Next year!!!
