Intro to Paranormal: Books to Get you Started

It’s kind of fun thinking back and seeing what book first started my love of a genre. There’s a lot of people who are tired of the whole vampire phase so I avoided any vampire books, mostly because I got tired of them a while ago. These are the books that first got my into paranormal and supernatural books. I’ll forever love them! Middle Grade The Kiesha’ra series: Not a very well known series but it’s what first got me into paranormal. There’s five books and they’re all pretty short but very interesting. I loved reading them when I was younger […]

Review: Forbidden (Arotas Trilogy #1)

Review: Forbidden (Arotas Trilogy #1)

Cover Pretty typical cover. It’s a pretty dress though. Initial Thoughts I didn’t know anything about this book going into it. Nothing at all. I saw a few bad reviews but figured I’d make my own opinion. My New BFF Oh my gosh Sadie was the funniest character. I especially liked how clueless she was at the start. She didn’t realize anything was different about Rose. I thought she was a great character with a really bubbly personality which made the book really fun while still being fairly serious. My Crush I’m crushing on yummy Gabriel. I’m really curious to […]

Review: Empire of Night (Age of Legends #2)

Cover I’m loving the art on this cover. It’s so creepy and cool! They’re doing a great job so far with cover art in this series. Keep up the great work! Initial Thoughts I love everything ever written by Kelley Armstrong and she has yet to disappoint. I expected great things from this book! My New BFF I think Moira is my favourite character. I like Ashyn too but I feel like I can relate to Moira more. She’s not afraid to fight to get out of a tough situation. I just find myself waiting for her point of view […]

Review: Silver Shadows (Bloodlines #5)

Cover These covers are really boring but I’ve seen worse so I can’t complain really. Initial Thoughts I’m nervous. I don’t want this series to end and I especially don’t want the ending to suck. It’s going so good right now that I’m worried that the author will mess up. Fingers crossed! My New BFF It’s not a new bff, it’s the same one since I started this series. Sydney really does surprise me. She’s not a fighter but she’s fighting for her life in this book. There’s so much going on with her and it makes me love her […]

Review: The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1)

Review: The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1)

Cover Kind of creepy. Pretty typical though. The cover I have is much simpler and I like it better. Initial Thoughts I wasn’t expecting to like this book. I couldn’t tell you why but I just felt like it was going to be like any other vampire book. I’m glad it took a different turn. My New BFF I think Kanin was my favourite and I was sad that there wasn’t more of him in this book. He’d better be in the next one! He’s the big, bad, and scary vampire that turned our main character. He was just trying […]

Review: The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines #4)

Review: The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines #4)

Cover These covers are a little boring to me but I really like the font used and at least they all match. Initial Thoughts I’m obsessed with this series. I can’t get enough of the characters and the world. I’m excited to continue but I’m also nervous that the author will disappoint me. My New BFF I really like Sydney as a main character. I was getting a little tired of seeing though badass, tough female leads. I’m glad Sydney has all her little insecurities and that she’s trying to get through them like the rest of us. It probably […]

Review: The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3)

Review: The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3)

Cover These covers are pretty typical. At least they have something to do with the book so that good I guess. They could have done so much more with them though. Initial Thoughts I’m in love with this series and everything about it. My expectations will stay high because I believe really hard that the author won’t mess it up. So far so good! My New BFF I really love Sydney. I find she’s an inspiring character. I love that she can think for herself even though she’s been conditioned not to. She’s not perfect in any way and sometimes […]

Review: The Diviners (The Diviners #1)

Initial Thoughts I heard a lot of good things about this book and I loved Libba Brays Gemma Doyle series so I had fairly high expectations. The whole 20’s era threw me off a little because that’s not typically an era I read about but it turned out to be easier than I thought. My New BFF I really liked Evie, the main character. She’s a young girl in a time where girls don’t always have the same opportunities as men do. She likes to go out and party a lot but she’s actually a very independent girl. She’s brave […]

Review: The Golden Lily (Bloodlines #2)

Cover Same boring kind of cover but at least they all match. I’ll take it. Initial Thoughts I was ready to completely devour this book and I’m glad I picked it up right away. I seriously could not wait to get my hands on this next book. My New BFF Sydney just keeps making me happy. She’s growing so much that I can’t keep up with her sometimes.  I love how brave she is even though she’s been trained not to care about any of the people she’s with. She looks at her surroundings and sees that these vampires aren’t […]
