I'm freaking dying to get my hands on the next one. I don't even know the title... just the problems of a reader I guess. What book would y

Review - Autumn in the City of Angels

What would you do if you lived through the apocalypse? The real fight to survive comes after everyone else is gone. A plague of epic proportion sweeps the globe, leaving less than one percent of the world’s population immune. Among the living is Autumn Winters, the teenage daughter of a famous actress. When Autumn’s parents don’t come home and the city is overtaken by a dangerous faction, she goes into hiding with a small group of underground survivors. They’re led by a mysterious young man who harbors an unearthly secret, and with whom Autumn feels a deep connection. Autumn in the City of Angels is the first novel in a series, followed by Autumn in the Dark Meadows and Autumn in the City of Lights. Book Breakdown I received this book from the authors in exchange for an honest review. This book wasted no time before jumping right into the action! I do have a love/hate relationship with one part in the book. When everything goes to hell, Autumn kind of stalls out. Like any of us would d

My Top 6 Book Boyfriends

BOOK BOYFRIENDS! This is some of the reason I read books, for the hot guys. I mean I read for the plot and the adventure too. But come on, the guys are amazing and wonderful! You guys understand my feelings right? I'm going to countdown from 6 to 1. I'm only going to put one character from a single author as otherwise this list would have nothing but Jennifer Armentrout characters on it. 6)  Jace  How can anyone not want a Jace? He's badass and sweet and really caring with a huge side of arrogant. 5) Daemon Black (I was so freaking close to putting my wonderful Roth here but I don't know... Daemon just kind of happened upon the page instead.... weird) Do I even really need to say anything about him? He's so freaking perfect.  4) Ash, The Winter Prince He's so caring and willing to give up everything to be with his true love, isn't that not the sweetest most romantic thing ever? 3) Edward Cullen  I know most people now hate Twilight and everything but I'l

Giveaway!

Okay everyone! It's time for my very first giveaway! This is my way of saying thank you for sticking with me and reading and commenting on my blog and just simply fangirling with me. I now have over 300 subscribers and I'm so thankful for each and everyone of you! This giveaway is international so everyone can enter! I am not responsible for anything lost (hopefully it won't be). I will have a tracking number that I'll pass on to the winner. Now I want to talk a little about why I chose these books. They each have some kind of meaning. City of Bones - I love this series, it's one of my favorites. I've loved them back when they were only going to be a trilogy so for a long time!! Vampire Diaries - I've talked about this before but this is the very first young adult series I read back in 2007. It started my love for reading YA. Sapphire Blue - This one has such beautiful covers and was so entertaining I want to share that with you guys. Blue Bloods - If you

Review - Oleah Chronicles: Truth

What would you do if everything you thought to be true in your life was a lie? Sixteen-year-old Angel Seriki must face overwhelming truths about her family when she meets Zander Black, a new student to her high school who is smart, charming and devastatingly beautiful. The revelations he uncovers to her about her family's past changes everything, and as her relationship and feelings for Zander deepen, so do the risks involved. She must now accept her fate and face the true reality of who and what she is. Even if that means giving up everything, including being human. My Thoughts/Review *I received this book in exchange for a honest review* Angel is just your normal average sixteen year old girl... or so she thought. Angel goes to school everyday, her parents pressure her to get good grades. Her parents even tell her not to date, just like a normal family. But when Zander shows up, normal goes out the window. Angel's life is not what she thought. She's a princess from anothe

Review - Enter the Realm of Flesh

Description  "The blade seemed to cut the air itself apart. Before he could stop, he had created a strange, ineffable crack in the air. Then, an arm reached through ... and shortly afterwards, a body followed."  Michael Phoenix is just your ordinary misfit teenager. He lives in a New England small town, his father ran off a year ago, and he falls asleep in school every now and then. However, one night, Michael accidentally opens a portal to another world, and an alien creature invades his home. All he thought he knew about the world is shattered when he is plunged into a world of darkness, a world that's strange and alien—a world that once was home to him.  Michael embarks on a journey to the darkest corners of the Earth in search for purpose, home, and vengeance. He is ready to do all it takes, even if he must go to the source of his nightmares—even if he must enter the Realm of Flesh. Along the way, he gains supernatural abilities and learns to cope with loss.  A horror

The Book Life Tag

This is an older tag but looked fun and I wanted to give it a shot. If you life was a book, what would you choose? Drum roll! And now let's get to it. Who would your parents be? I have no idea... I really don't like too many of the parents I read about sadly. Maybe Charlie from Twilight so I could just be left alone to do my own thing. Who would be your sister? Bliss from Blue Bloods Who would be your pet?. Church from the Mortal Instruments series, he's just way too awesome. Where would you live? New York or Nashville. New York has my sexy Shadowhunters but Nashville has a Covenant and plus I was born around Nashville and yeah. My hometown. Where would you go to school? *Laughs* Everyone is going to pick Hogwarts, it's the coolest school ever. Who would be your best friend? Layla from The Dark Elements trilogy, she is awesome and we would totally get along. Who would be your significant other? Oh God, how to answer this. Can I have more than one? Like six? No? Okay...

Indie Week!

This week all my reviews will be for indie books. I love indie books, some can be so fantastic and it's like finding a diamond in the rough! I also love to support indie authors. One day I'll probably be one myself (if everything goes the way I want that is). So, check back lots this week, who knows maybe you'll can find your next favorite read and you'd also be helping these authors out a lot. I've actually had the pleasure of talking to some of the authors and they just seem so freaking cool! If you know any good indie books tell me below and I'll check them out also. So come on this journey with me!  

The Book Combo Tag!

I was tagged by the wonderful Erika from Books, Stars, Writing. And Everything In Between . Thank you for tagging me! I just love doing tags, they are so much fun! Also if you guys have not checked out her blog then do it! It's awesome sauce. 1) Which two authors would you like to put their writing skills together and write a new book? My two favorite authors of course. I don't know how well it would work out since their writing style is different but what the heck. Jennifer L Armentrout and Sarah J Maas. 2) What's your favorite author collaboration? I hate to say this but I don't read many author collaborations but when I was younger I really enjoyed House of Night and I've recently been reading an indie book called Autumn in the City of Angels by Kirby Howell which is a pen name for Dana Melton and Jessica Alexander. It's really good so far! 3) If you could combine two completely different stories and make them a book of their own, what would it be and what w

ARC Review - Crystal Kingdom (The Kanin Chronicles #3)

Description  Cast out by her kingdom and far from home, she's the Kanin people's only hope. Bryn Aven - unjustly charged with murder and treason - is on the run. The one person who can help is her greatest enemy, the enigmatic Konstantin Black. Konstantin is her only ally against those who have taken over her kingdom and threaten to destroy everything she holds dear. But can she trust him? As Bryn fights to clear her name, the Kanin rulers’ darkest secrets are coming to light… and now the entire troll world is on the brink of war.

Our main character (Bryan) is want

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison @Alison Can Read . I'm also a featured blogger this week! How amazing is that?! Question What is your favorite movie? - Suggested by A Kernel of Nonsense .  Answer I don't really have one favorite movie, I have a whole bunch. There is one movie though that I can watch over and over... it's an old movie. A retelling of Cinderella. It's called Ever After. I just melt every time I watch this movie. Storyline With the sudden death of her loving father, Danielle is made a servant by her new stepmother. She also has two new stepsisters, one quite kind but the other one really horrid. Still, Danie

Thursday's Discussion

This is something I've decided to do for fun. Thursday's I'm going to discuss a new topic. Every week, I'm going to let you, my wonderful sunflowers chose the topic. Anything you want to talk about just post in below in the comments. If you just want to ask questions or talk about a book, whatever, anything goes! I'm going to start off this with the YA book/series that got me into reading YA. I read them in the summer of 2007 and I was in love with them. I read them back when there was only 4 books out. I remember getting this edition and then sometime later that year I got the other one, with the blonde girl on the cover.  I fell in love with Damon. I will say that these aren't the best around and reading them now I see that they aren't as great as I thought but to a young girl who had only ever read middle grade or school rated books this was like finding the Holy Grail or something. So buttercups (I call you guys lots of flowery names...), what was the fi

Waiting On Wednesday (18)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine Expected Release Date: 09/29/2015 The battle rages on. Ali Bell and Cole Holland's crew of zombie slayers thought they'd won the war against Anima Industries, the evil company responsible for capturing and experimenting on zombies in an effort to discover the secret to immortality. In the last epic clash, the slayers lost many of their crew and closest friends. But Frosty, the ice man himself, has not recovered from one casualty in particular the love of his life, Kat Parker. On the path to self-annihilation, Frosty receives a message from beyond Kat's spirit returns, insisting he partner with rogue slayer Camilla Marks. Frosty will do anything for Kat. Except that. Camilla is the one who betrayed them all, leading to Kat's death.

Review - Throne of Glass

Description  After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer

This is just going to be a quick post but I wanted to let you lovely sunflowers know that I'm going to be doing my first giveaway soon! It's going to be the end of July or the beginning of August. I'm going to be giving away 4-5 physical books. I'm still debating if I should make it international or not though. But I hope you guys all get excited! This is my way of saying thank you for reading my blog and helping me reach over 200 followers! You guys are seriously the best ever! I'd hug you all if I could. So that's all for now.

Book Haul (2)

I got a lot to talk about this time around! My boyfriend has been spoiling me and I've also gotten a few free books from authors to read and review and now I'm going to put them all out here for you guys to see! 1) City of Glass (UK Version) 2) Clockwork Angel (UK Version) 3) Developing Minds (I got this one for a free review. Sounded pretty good) 4) The Iron Queen 5) The Iron Knight 6) Hot Gimmick S 7) Divergent Collector's Edition (I used to own them all but I sold every single one and just bought this one... I honestly dislike the rest of the novels. Only Divergent is awesome sauce). So that is pretty much it for this book haul. Have you Sunflowers gotten anything good lately? Let me know below in the comments. 

Rant

This is my first ever rant, I'm not normally one to rant but this really got my blood pumping and anger raising. I was talking to someone very close to me and we started talking about books... big mistake! This person said that YA books are all immature and the characters are immature... Like how? What gets me the most is this person has only ever read Harry Potter.... and sometimes those are considered  juvenile/middle grade! I just hate when people judge something that they've never read, it makes no sense to me at all. Plus, I've read a lot of YA, it's mostly what I read and yes, some of the books are immature but not every single one! There is a lot of mature YA out there. Jennifer L Armentrout writes some pretty much mature YA.  Sorry, I hate ranting but this just rubs me the wrong way! Have you ever encountered anything like this before? If so tell me in the comments or even just tell me how wrong you think this too. 

Review - Fragile Eternity (Wicked Lovely #3)

Details Title: Fragile Eternity  Author: Melissa Marr Series: Wicked Lovely  Number in Series: 3 Page Count: 389 Format: Hardcover Published: April 21, 2009 Publisher: Bowen Press Description  Seth never expected he would want to settle down with anyone - but that was before Aislinn. She is everything he'd ever dreamed of, and he wants to be with her forever. Forever takes on new meaning, though, when your girlfriend is an immortal faery queen. Aislinn never expected to rule the very creatures who'd always terrified her - but that was before Keenan. He stole her mortality to make her a monarch, and now she faces challenges and enticements beyond any she'd ever imagined. In Melissa Marr's third mesmerizing tale of Faerie, Seth and Aislinn struggle to stay true to themselves and each other in a milieu of shadowy rules and shifting allegiances, where old friends become new enemies and one wrong move could plunge the Earth into chaos.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison @Alison Can Read . This Week's Question If you had the money what would your own personal library look like? What would be in it? What colors, decorations, etc would you put in it? - Suggested by The Realm of Books .  Answer Something like this but with black cherry wood and different colored furniture to match my tastes. I love the idea of the double story, the bannister at the top where you can look down at everything. I like a more old fashioned approach than the modern makings. What about you guys? What would your dream library be? Let me know below in the comments.

The Book Fangirling Blog Award

First off, I would like to thank the wonderful Fiona from A Girl Between the Pages . This award so suits me as I'm always fangirling and driving my boyfriend and sister crazy. I just can't help it! It's alright though, I know that you amazing sunflowers understand me and for that I love you all so much! Now, I have some questions to answer! 1)  What is your favorite thing about blogging? This may sound cheesy and such but it's being able to share my thoughts, love for books and characters with others who have the same love for it. Growing up and even now as an 'adult', I still have no friends into reading... most think I'm weird for reading when there is so much other 'adult' things I could be doing. So to actually have people who I can fangirl with and talk about books we love so much or ones that we even hate and need to rant about. So yeah, it's you lovely buttercups. Thanks for every single comment.  2. Which books or series your book boyfrie

Review - The Iron King (The Iron Fey #1)

Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined. Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil, no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart. Details Title: The Iron King Series: The Iron Fey Page Count: 384 Publisher:  Harlequin Teen Release Date: 02/01/2010 Format: Paperback My Thoughts/Review Meghan Chase is just like any normal teenage gi

The Creatures of the Night

Another tag! Though no one tagged me for this tag as it's older than my blog I found it through youtube on a little channel you may know:  Katytastic I love paranormal/supernatural books so much, it's my favorite to read. So when I saw this I just had to do it, because I love talking about books and things that go bump in the night. 1. Vampire God, I have a lot of books I could name because I love vampires. So I'm going to go with the Blue Bloods series. 2. Werewolf I don't read too many werewolf books but there one series where I actually liked them and guess what it is? Come on, think. It's an easy one. Still don't know? Well then, The Twilight Saga! Also can I just say how beautiful the white covers are? I've always wanted to get them. 3. Zombie This is something that most of you don't know about me but you're about to! I'm a huge Resident Evil fan and years ago they came out with novels of the books and yeah. So, for zombies I pick Resident E
