The Immortal rules by Julie Kagawa
The Immortal rules is about a world where vampires rule.
The humans only use is to feed them but not everybody thinks that way. Allison is human and she hate vampires. She lives like an outlaw and her only goal is to keep herself alive by trying to find food where she can. Circumstances makes that she becomes the very thing she hates, a vampire. Her maker teaches her everything that he can before she have to flee the city. Then Allison is on a journey, a journey to figure out what kind of monster she really is.
This is the first book I have read of Julie Kagawa and I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised. Her writing is really good and makes it easy for me to imagine her world. Although I thought that the book was a little bit long I found it surprisingly good. I really liked Allison, she is a badass. She was really on a long journey and found sometthing worth fighting for. She can really handle herself and doesnt bow down for anyone. I really liked the struggle she had with her humanity. Even though I am a fan of vampires and the whole vampire universe, I thought that the author had thought through the details. I got a good look into the world of being a vampire and all that intails. As I said I really liked this book and I will definatly read the other 2 in the series. I give it 4 stars because I just love a good vampire book<3
Numbers by Rachel Ward
This is a story about a girls journey to find love, trust and friendship.
Jem is a 15 year old foster child but she isn’t a normal one. She can see numbers in her head. The numbers of when people will die. One day she has had enough of it all and runs away with her friend Spider.
This was an okay book for me. I really liked the British slang. It gave the book something special. Ward is a good writer but I didn’t agree with all of her decisions. Especially the ending didn’t make any sense to me. The ending (after my opinion) ruined the book for me. So I kinda liked it but as I said the ending was a bummer so I give it 3,5 stars
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
In a world where love is forbidden, two people find a way to fall in love.
Lena can’t wait to get her procedure. She wants to get it over with so she doesn’t have to worry about the deliria infecting her. A life without love and a life without pain is all she wants. She wants to be happy but then she meets Alex and then she discovers that a life without love is not a life at all.
I read this book because I promised my sister and I have to confess that I have mixed feelings about it. At times, it was a little boring and I considered not finishing it, but I did and I am actually glad I did. I liked the concept that love is a disease that you have to be removed. I liked Lena and Alex they were really sweet together. However, the reason I am on the fence with this book is the tempo. It didn’t hold my attention through the whole book. There were parts there were exiting and then parts where I was almost asleep. The author is good at describing the environment and I guess that’s okay because it is a dystopian novel. BUT she also describes very unimportant things like an old bike and who it belonged to. I couldn’t care less about that. But beside that, it was very sweet and creative book. I especially liked the ending and that is why I give
Delirium 3,5 stars.
Vanquish by Pam Godwin
“Fuck him, but he wanted to be her security, her anchor, her fucking everything. Not as her captor but as her lover.”
Vanquish stars where Deliver ends, with Liv shooting Van. This book is about how Van begins his new life after being a sextrafficker. He wants to show Liv that he is a changed man and that he can be a good father to his daughter. In that quest he accedentially runs into Amber who is almost as srewed up as he is. And together they help each other to become better versions of themselves.
This is the second book I have read of Pam Godwin and I am plesantly surprised. She is a good writer and knows how to captivate her readers. Even though I thought that Deliver was better than Vanquish, I still liked it and kept reading it till the end. I will give the book what it deserves 4 stars
Note: If you haven’t read Deliver, do it! It’s really good.
Pretend is about two men with very complicated family problems and together they find the freedom they desperately want.
First of all, if you want to read Pretend you should probably start with the first book in the series, Collide. It is simply amazing. Second I may not be the best person to critizie this book. I love Riley Hart as an author, she writes so beautifully. I love all of her books. Pretend is the 3rd book in the blackcreek series. The other two were really great but I am afraid to say Pretend was a little thin. The plot wasnt strong enough to keep me exited. Both of them have complicated lives and their relationship are very easy. Maybe a little too esay. I would have liked a little more tension between them. Other than that I really liked Mason and Gavin. They are very sweet and Mason is a very bossy bottom which I loved. It was sweet and very well written, as always, so I give Pretend 4 stars.
It ain’t me, babe by Tillie Cole
“I have only ever liked one boy in my life. I have only wanted one man to have as my own. I have only ever had one dream since I was eight. Styx, the dream is you. You stole my heart fifteen years ago and you still haven’t given it back.”
Salome knows nothing of the outside world. She has grown up in a religious cult. She has been convinced that she was born a sinner because of her good looks. Therefore, she must repent and ultimately be Prophet David’s wife.
Under circumstances, she escapes the compound and ends up in the place were sin is everyday life. The hades hangmen motorcycle clubs president River Styx helps her and realizes that she was the girl he met very briefly when he was young.
Fascinated by her, he keeps her under his protection. However, life in the hangmen club is not without risk and danger soon threaten Styx and Salomes connection.
This book was recommended to me so I thought I would try it. I think it was a very good story. I like strong heroines and Salome was one strong woman. Styx was hot, sometimes though I felt like hitting I’m in the head for being a moron.
I liked the plot twist and I didn’t see most of them coming. I was fascinated that Salome and Styx grew up in two very different worlds. They were both trapped in a community witch they couldn’t escape. The only difference is, that Styx were the leader in his world.
The writing was okay but it could have been better. I thought that the author focused on the wrong things. I felt like she jumped some of the most important things in the story. Like Salome and Styx growing relationship. In the story there was happening a lot of gruesome things but she chose to spare us the details. I would have liked to read them so I could feel what Styx felt when he killed or did grusome things.
She used a lot of space to describe both worlds but not enough to describe Salome and Styx relationship. It was a little like watching a horror/thriller movie where you fast-forward the action and the gruesome parts. I was a little disappointed about that. Overall a very good book. Would defiantly recommend this one.
