Yes my title this month is books because you will find as you read through, they are just books in this review. I've been uhm on the reading spree I guess you could say.
I can't believe it's the end of August, no way, the end of summer, where did the summer go? I can say this is a summer for the books. Another year at Wild Water Kingdom oh yeah. Met & trained new people as well as saw a lot of old faces. They are my family away from my family lol. I met my boyfriend at work. Who would have thought I would have one of those? heehee. I took a yoga class for the first time, that was something different, though it wasn't all the new & different I have done quite a lot of the moves before without realizing they were yoga moves lol.
I went to Florida, and to Ottawa in the span of this summer, damn. (well Florida was more spring, but it was still on my summer vacation lol.) Hung out with my friends though I haven't seen them for a month now because I've been working & with le boyfriend haha. I even got an infection woo, what a summer.
I think I'm ready for the new school year, to see what it brings. I only have 4 semesters, 2 years left so time to make things count for my future.
Now I'll shut up and get to my reviews! :D
Night World No. 3 By: L.J Smith: The third volume in the Night World Series. In this volume, the three books include Huntress, Black Dawn, and Witchlight. In the stories it’s not all about finding their soulmates this time around. In Huntress, Jez finds out the truth about herself, in more ways then one as she tries to find the Wild Power. In Black Dawn, Maggie, a human, finds herself in the night world; as well as finding out her soulmate is one of the four Wild Powers. In the last book, Witchlight Keller is a shapeshifter who is on the hunt for the Wild Power. In this third volume the Wild Powers are people with special powers who will fight in the millennium war, yes this book was written in the 1990’s. Overall the stories were interesting, and were written with more suspicion to make the reader keep reading. How this series will end is all that’s left, and readers are waiting!
Burned By: Ellen Hopkins: When Pattyn starts to wonder about God and sex, well let’s just say that doesn’t go down with her super religious family. She is sent away to live with her aunt hoping to find herself, and that she does, though returning home is something she doesn’t want to do, but knows she has to. The book starts off relatively slow, and certain points you wonder if you should continue reading. It does get better, but the storyline is powerful, and if you’re not religious, it can make you a little angry. The book is left in a sort of cliffhanger ending, and there feels like there should be more. Overall it’s quick paced, and written in the same style Hopkins always writes in, poems, it’s a good read once you dig in.
Lord of Misrule By: Rachel Caine: The fifth book in the Morganville vampires series. Now that the town has gone into a war against the two most powerful vampires, Amelie and Bishop, it’s up to the residence at the Glass house to make sure everything turns out okay, but in the end how can you really be sure everything is going to turn out okay? Another fast paced novel that has you on your toes at some points just dying to know what is going to happen. While other times Caine goes into a bit too much detail and well bores you right out. Overall it was a great next chapter, only it ended too soon!
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland By: Lewis Carroll: It’s the tale of a young girl named Alice, who falls into a world in which she describes it as Wonderland. Each chapter she is met with a new creature and a new adventure with them. The children’s book is filled with a lot of questions about life, and about who you are, but as well it is filled with lots of adventures to keep you reading. Sometimes it just doesn’t make sense what is going on, but that’s the love and curiosity of Wonderland.
Dark Visions By: L.J Smith: Kaitlyn is a witch who has psychic powers. She is taken to an Institute where she meets others who are like her, where they will teach her to control her power. Unfortunately, the people running the Institute are bad therefore they have to become spies to destroy the bad, and make everything good. The storyline was good, and there was a great plotline, it had moments when the story became boring and dry, and you just wanted to get to the action. Overall this little series was something a little different then your ordinary vampire book!
Lullaby By: Amanda Hocking: The second book in the Watersong series. Since Gemma has run away to become a mermaid to protect her friends and family, her family and friends are worried about her. Therefore they try everything to get her back. Once they do, they’ve made a deal with the devil that is probably not going to turn out well. The story was fast paced and you could read rather quickly, as well as the story’s content was different, well this whole series is different, but in a good way. Some novels can become rather boring, but these novels in this series are interesting and keep the reader interested and begging for more!
Carpe Corpus By: Rachel Caine: The sixth book in the Morganville Vampires series. Claire is finally another year older, but that doesn’t stop her parents from treating her differently, but it does her boyfriend. Everyone in Morganville is sided with Bishop the evil vampire who wants to destroy, or so it seems, until one is sacrificed to save the town. The series seems to be at a stand still, but I’m sure there is more to come when vampires and humans start to live as equals together. This book had a lot happening, and kept the reader engaged the entire time. The author closed all the lose ends off, but there is still one that begs the question what will happen next!
Impulse By: Ellen Hopkins: Three lives, all different, yet all the same. These three young people find themselves at the same place for different reasons, but are their reasons different at all? The novel was moving, with unpredictable turns of events. Like every Ellen Hopkin book, the characters are going through something and they need each other to get through it. It shows the power of love in peoples lives and how extreme it can be, but also how beautiful it can be. Overall the novel was something you could read in a sitting, though taking time to read and getting to know the characters was beneficial to the story.
The Subtle Knife By: Philip Pullman: The second book in His Dark Materials series. This time the reader is thrown between different worlds. Lyra meets Will and together they have to help each other out. Lyra helps him find his father, while he helps her steal something back that belongs to her. The novel had its really dry spots, but overall this book was better then the first, there was more action, and a plot that was a little hard to follow along, but overall was entertaining to follow along with!
Well that's all for me, what have you guys been reading?
