This week's topic is: Favorite Fictional Families! 

*in no particular order

This one is going to be hard since many families just are not there in my books I read! There might be one parent or one sibling. But here we go...


This one actually came to mind first! Yelena meets the family she didn't know she had, mom, dad and brother! They were pretty great! I liked how their reunion went, loving yet a little tentative since it had been so many years since she last saw them!


This one is a bit of an extended family, but I love them all the same! The wolf pack is just too great! Loved Nick, Clay, Antonio...please tell me I am remembering these names correctly. :)


Almost forgot this one! They were a great family! Loved them!


Yup! This series tends to fall into my top fave of some kind! I loooved Pietr's family! They are just too great! Max is hilarious and adorable! Cat is kind and sweet! And Alexi is pretty awesome too!


Small family that it is, and I don't want to count her grandparents or even her father, Cat's family is pretty cool! Justina, while a little bitchy and annoying at first has become a pretty cool mom! Plus you got to think of Cat's extended family, all the vampires that she now thinks of as family. And Bones too! But he's a given!

Review--Wings by Aprilynne Pike

Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pal things. They were terrifyingly beautiful - too beautiful for words. Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.

Laurel's life is the very definition of normal...until the morning when she wakes up to discover a flower blooming from her back. As it turns out, nothing in Laurel's life is what it seems. Now, with the help of an alluring faerie sentry who holds the key to her true past, Laurel must race to save her human family from the centuries-old faerie enemies who walk among them.

So I have finally gotten around to reading Aprilynne Pike's Wings! It's only been on my Kindle for nearly 3 years or so! And it was simply magical!

I was a little leary of reading at first, Laurel is just too good. Like the perfect daughter who can do no wrong. She's a little socially awkward since she was home-schooled up til she was 15, but that can be expected. Yet she still just seems to have this...way about her. She feels like the perfect goody two shoes. But she doesn't really come off to me as being annoyingly so. She may have been a little too innocent at times, but it kinda worked for her.

Laurel always knew she was adopted--well the story's a bit more detailed, but I won't get into it. She's also know she's always been a bit different. She only eats fruits and veggies. She drinks sugary sodas--yet is amazingly thin! She has fair skin and hair, and loves the outdoors. So we can see something mystical building about her. When a flower--yes a flower!--suddenly starts growing from her back, she panics. Something is wrong with her.

With the help of her new friend David, they sort of study her. They look at her flower petals, test her blood, and other things--Laurel isn't really human. She's faerie. But not like the faeries we know. In fact, these faeries don't have wings and don't fly. In fact a lot of the myths humans have about faeries are pretty much all wrong.

The majority of the novel is sort of a self discovery thing going on for Laurel, but there is more. Such as trolls! And other faeries. Laurel soon meets Tamani, a faerie who seems to have all the answers. She learns a great deal from him, including info about her enemies. Who are after her family's old house for it sits on "sacred faerie land". Laurel must now do what she can to stop them and keep her family safe.

There was some romance in this as well. Tension runs thick between David and Laurel. And if these two don't get together I want to scream. The tension was that thick! Yet Laurel also feels an attraction to Tamani. Hello love triangle. 

The storyline overall was pretty interesting. Although, I'm hoping this is a case of first book scenario--where the first book is like the intro to the series and that later books will be more exciting--because this one, while exciting, just wasn't as adventurous as I would've hoped for the first in a series. But still, it was entertaining. Laurel is definitely a refreshing kind of heroine!

Overall rating 3.5/5 stars

Mini Review--The Asylum Interviews: Bronx by Jocelynn Drake

In Low Town, where humans walk and work side-by-side with elves, vampires, ogres, and all manner of creature, it's understandable that people occasionally need a little help in their lives. Whether is love, work, or ... other, tattoo artists are there to try to help turn the odds into your favor. When Gage's friend Parker needs help with his love life, tattoo artists Gage and Bronx are only too happy to help. But the incubus ends up getting more than he bargained for with his new tattoo, and his friends are forced to scramble to fix the mess they've created before someone gets hurt.

I received this unedited version of the novella from the author for review

In a few days you might notice that my blog will be taken over for the day, by none other than Jocelynn Drake! Surprise! I will be having a character interview Jocelynn put together for a small blog tour for the Asylum Tales! The Asylum Interviews: Bronx, is one of the prequels to Angel's Ink that releases later this year.

So I decided to read this one right away since I had just finished another novella! And it was incredible!! We follow Gage in this story as he is trying to make his way on his own away from the witches and warlocks that rule in the Ivory Towers.

Jocelynn does an excellent job of world building in such a short amount of time! It's hard to put into a short review, but just know that she really sets the world up for you. We learn enough details to get by. And Gage is our main character here, as he likely will be in Angel's Ink.

As we are quick to learn, Gage is a tattoo artist and he does his tattoos a little differently then other tattoo artists. He had magical talents that he is forbidden to use in self-defense, he even has someone watching over him to make sure he stays in line. But obviously our Gage here knows how to break the rules discreetly!

We begin by seeing Gage waking up in a woman's bathroom at a club. It was a great start as Gage then has to track down his incubus friend, Parker, who he was with last and find out what the hell he did to him. This is when he meets Bronx, a troll who helps him sober up and then sticks around to help Gage out.

Bronx is also a tattoo artist and is looking for a job, he and Gage chat on business for a short time before the chaos starts. Bronx turns out to be a huge help in tracking Parker down and then keeping him still while Gage gives him hell.

Things start to go to hell once Bronx gives Parker a tattoo that can help with his incubus needs so he can stay with his girlfriend. The tattoo ends up going horribly wrong and Bronx and Gage rush to try to fix the problem getting themselves into all sorts of chaotic mishaps.

Again, I struggle with reviewing novellas because of their length and it's hard to not gush about them without giving everything away! But this was a nice way to get to know some of the people we will be seeing this fall in Jocelynn's new series! There's even going to be another novella in September where we'll meet Trixie!

This is an exciting new world Jocelynn has cooked up! Here people know about the paranormals inhabiting their world. It's going to be a kick ass series, I just know it!

Overall rating 5/5 stars

Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock

Review--Divergent by Veronica Roth

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves… or it might destroy her.

Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series—dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

All righty! I really finished this last Friday while I was in the car going on vacation with my family! And wow! All I can say is that I love it!

Veronica Roth's Divergent is simply amazing! I loved seeing Beatrice's transformation. She sort of reminded me of Veronica Wolff's Drew. The same sort of awkward-like-ness. The type who has never done anything dangerous and yet has to learn how to be so! Beatrice--Tris, as she calls herself, is the same. She lives in Abnegation where they always always to the extreme put others before themselves. And when she turns 16, she gets to choose which faction she wants to live in. But when she takes a sort of aptitude test to see where she might belong, her results are inconclusive--which results to her being Divergent. She doesn't really belong to any one faction. 

You would think this wouldn't be a big deal, so your beliefs go both ways in certain circumstances, but in this futuristic Chicago, it is a very big deal. Being Divergent is dangerous. It could get you killed.

Tris chooses to be Dauntless, but soon finds out that just because she chose the Dauntless faction, doesn't mean she's a member. She has to pass three tests, in which other initiates are eliminated as well. At first it looks like she might have chosen poorly, because if she fails to pass the tests with good scores, she will become factionless. And the odds aren't in her favor to begin with since she's from Abnegation. The other initiates are pretty cruel.

For the majority of the book, we see Tris transform from her meek self into a stronger person. She gets tattoos, stands up for people, takes risks, does daredevil activities. It was amazing! I so envy her ability to adapt.

Now onto a major topic, Four! I soooo understand the Four love now! I so fell for him too. He so has the mysterious vibe down! He's strong and fierce, yet Tris finds the soft side to him!

The other characters were great too! Christina started off a little flakey. I was afraid she'd be a big bitch to Tris, but she actually becomes a very good friend! There are also some not so nice people, such as Peter who was a total asswad. He was set to bring Tris down, because she was better than him and partly because she was from Abnegation.

The ending cane be summed up in two words. Totally Epic! Big things were happening, this is what the series was building too I believe, yet I can't say what it was. But it involves all of the factions.

The ending was totally action packed and I will admit it left me a little emotional! Soooo much was happening left and right! The tale end of course leaves just enough hanging that you anticipate the next book, but I have other books I have to get through first, unfortunately!

The writing of Divergent was splendid! I wasn't sure if I would like it, knowing that there wasn't any paranormal elements, yet surprisingly, I did love it! There's so much action, and even a bit of mystery building up that it was hard to not enjoy it!

Divergent was an epic read! I look forward to reading more of this series!

Overall rating 5/5 stars

Random Thursday

So this is a totally randomness post that I was planning for awhile, but kept pushing back because I had better ideas come along.

So here we go!

Does anyone remember the tan M&M that they used to have? Now that they are giving "life" to the brown M&M in the commercials as a smart girl! Yay! Like her the best! It got me thinking...whatever happened to the tan M&M?

I think it disappeared around the time when the blue one became new. Does anyone remember that time? I remember it being a big commercial deal. Like who or what is the new M&M going to look like?

Then poof, blue M&M! Definitely a more colorful bag with it in it!

Look how the bag was before the blue:

Kinda blah right? Looks like a fall candy, only it was all year round!

So does anyone else remember this? Please tell me you do, otherwise I'm going to feel old, and I'm only 24! This was how the M&M bag was when I was a kid, so I was just wondering if anyone else remebers!

Another wow! Still on vacation, heading back to St. Louis and thick disgusting heat and humidity--seriosuly--tomorrow morning. Ugh. It's even getting warmer up here, but there's a nice breeze and it's not totally unbearable!

Moving on...

More cover art! This one is Andrea Cremer's Rise! The second book in her new series to start this year!

I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. I like it. It's got a nice mysterious vibe going, but the cover for Rift--liking this four letter word that begins with R, wondering if Andrea can do it again for book 3--was so awesome!! Ember looked fierce! Now she's kind of not doing anything.

But I still look forward to this one! And it releases January 2013! Wow, still so long to wait and I've already read Rift!

Waiting on Wednesday

I hate waiting...
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.


It’s the start of the fall semester, and a new crop of Acari and Trainees have descended on the Isle of Night. Watcher training has intensified, and Drew has a new roommate named Mei-Ling. But Mei-Ling harbors a dangerous secret that drove the vampires to abduct her against her will. Drew knows she shouldn’t get involved, but she can’t seem to leave her roommate to fend for herself.

Luckily, Drew has other things on her mind—like vampire Carden. A blood bond to a brawny, eighteenth-century Scottish bad boy tends to preoccupy a girl. And though she’s still figuring out what this bond means, one thing has become clear: She craves him in a major way.

But then bodies start turning up on the island. All the evidence points to the existence of a rogue vampire, and the sinister vampire Alcántara is gunning for Carden, even though Drew has proof that Carden had nothing to do with the murders. Now she has to find the true killer—without endangering Carden, Mei-Ling, or herself…

Sooooooo cannot wait to read this one! This has fast become a fave series! Loving it! Drew is a pretty cool character! Love her!

ARC Review--Stalking the Others by Jess Haines

Vampires, werewolves, mages–the Others are very real, and wreaking havoc in Shiarra Waynest’s life. But now, she’s returning the favor…

Once, she was one of the good guys–or as close as a New York P.I. can get. Then Shiarra Waynest was drawn into the world of the Others. Every faction has its own loyalties and agenda. And Shia’s recent betrayal by her ex-boyfriend means that she may be on the verge of becoming a rogue werewolf at the next full moon.

Of course, with all the threats against her, Shia’s not sure she’ll live long enough to find out. The enigmatic vampire Royce wants her back in his clutches, as do two powerful werewolf packs, along with the police. Instead of going into hiding, Shia is enlisting the aid of her enchanted hunter’s belt and every dirty P.I. trick she knows. If she’s going down, she’ll take out as many of her enemies as she can–and hope that in the process, she keeps whatever humanity she has left…

I received this ARC from the author for review

Jess Haines' Stalking the Others was incredible!! And I have to say I love the new cover look! I think this makes a good Shiarra!

The book pretty much picks up where we left off, which is a bit fuzzy for me since I read it ages ago. Shiarra has been scratched by a Were. She is likely infected and has a month to find out. Time flies by fast too, as Shiarra is trying to track down Chaz and his pack. She wants retribution for what he did to her, Dillon too.

She finds herself teaming up with the White Hats in order to do this. But she has to stay under the radar, the police are looking for her for the murders the Weres caused. She is hellbent on exacting her revenge. It almost makes you wonder if the rage is coming from her near turning.

A good portion of the book has Shiarra dodging bullets, trying to find Chaz who is deep in hiding. Plus she still receives some open hostility from some of the White Hats, mostly from Nikki, while Bo and Jack treat her with respect. Yet, Jack still carries some distrust towards her.

Shiarra's emotions definitely seem to go back and forth in this series. First she hates the Others, then she sort of likes them, then she hates them again. Her prejudices are one of her most defining flaws, yet it's what makes her character so interesting, and it gives her room to grow. She's been through a lot, so you have to give her some leeway in her ways.

The second half of the book gets very interesting and contains spoilers, so I can't divulge in that area. But let's say when she does find Chaz things go haywire!

Royce, sadly wasn't in the picture as much. He popped up once and then he was there for the ending!! A little disappointing, but his second appearance definitely makes up for it. 

The belt is another issue, it's sort of scary how much of a character it's becoming. I think Jess has plans for it. We get a little more insight into its mind, although like I said, the belt is scary. We're talking about a spirit possessing a belt that can talk to you when you wear it. 

The pacing was good, even though there wasn't a whole lot of variety in the action, there was still lots of good action!! Shiarra is determined and no one is going to derail her from her goals.

There were a few loose-ends that weren't wrapped up at the end, but that's standard for series. Just hoping that we get to learn what happened with these characters and such the next time around! There was even a sneak peek at the next book, Forsaken by the Others, but I can no longer allow myself to read these snippets! They are too much of a tease and I can't torture myself by indulging.

Stalking the Others, a pretty good title considering that is what she does, was phenomenal! This is definitely a must read! And if you haven't read the H&W Investigations series, you really should! Shiarra, like I said, can be a challenging character, but I find myself totally invested in this series!

Overall rating 4.5/5 stars

ARC Review-- Fire Kissed by Erin Kellison

Fae Fire

It is Kaye Brand's power to wield. But outcast from her kind, she's been selling herself to the highest bidder—money for her survival in exchange for a magic glimpse into the flames of the future.

Angel Ice

One of the angelic Order, Jack Bastian has no use for a female like Kaye, as provocative and unexpected as her blazing beauty. Yet he has no choice but to hire her to uncover the secrets of his sworn enemy and her former fiancé, Ferrol Grey.


War is inevitable between the defenders of the Order and the mage Houses who threaten to engulf the world in Shadow. For Jack, mage-born Kaye is off limits, no matter how hot the impossible attraction between them. But in the coming darkness, beset by danger and desire, everything is about to change...

I received this ARC from the author for review

Erin Kellison's Fire Kissed is another beautifully written novel in her Shadow series! I truly love love love this series! It's got Dark Fantasy written all over it! There is a good handful of fairy tale elements mixed in, you just have to know what to look for! And in this case, it's said for us, The Little Match Girl was a reoccurring theme in this one! It's been years since I read that one, but Erin so nicely sums it up for us as she writes the book as well.

Kaye has been an outsider for years. Ever since she was 15 and ran away from home, after refusing to marry some old guy and burning said house down with her powers, she's kept herself distanced from the mages. But she still uses her abilities to make some money and survive. With her talents with fire, she lets people see their futures, and it is up to them to change it if they do not like what they see.

She soon finds herself in a different kind of employ though. With the Order and one Jack Bastian. They want to her to "investigate" what her former fiance--the old guy, who apparently is magically young again somehow--is up to. Angels have been going missing, and they believe Ferrol Grey may be behind it all.

Ferrol is definitely a creepy dude. For one, he is much younger than he should be--and we learn how later--and plus he just reeks of creepiness! We do get some insight from him when the chapter goes to his perspective and he really is the dastardly villain of fairy tales, wanting "the fair maiden" for himself.

Now onto a much better subject, Bastian, as Kaye calls him. There's definitely a lot of tension between these two. Kaye wasn't really willing to work with him and the Order, but after they matched her price for her services, she decided to go ahead with the job. And thus the tension between the two begins. Which makes things even more complicated when she is trying to assert herself back into the mage world and take her rightful place with the council, in the Brand seat. And in order to do that, she must be willingly seduced by the enemy--her former fiance.

That is when the sexual tension gets really thick, Bastian--for I like using this name as well--starts to not like Grey for a multitude of reasons. The main one being that he is touching Kaye. And when the fire finally sparks between these two, it practically blazes!! It was no insta-love here, but once they realized their feelings for one another, the love just took off! And it was sweet, in the hot and heavy kind of way! ;)

Kaye soon realizes how deep she's in with the mages and all their dark secrets. Grey has a plan, a big plan and she has to do everything she can to stop him. Even if it means accepting a very binding offer.

Kaye is not without her own plan though. She is just as cunning and ruthless--when necessary--as Grey. She fights fire with, well fire! ;) Yes, a bad pun but I couldn't resist!

The ending was spectacular too! There's really no other way to describe it. It is possible that Kaye's story isn't quite finished, but it's finished enough. Most of Erin's books end on a light note, but you can almost feel the bigger storm brewing, it's on the horizon and it's coming. The Twilight world is ever affecting the real world which we live in. Wraiths are proof of that. Who knows what the next adventure in this thrilling series will take us or its characters! Fire Kissed was simply magical!

Overall rating 4.5/5 stars
