Hot, cold, hot, freezing?

I have no idea what is up with this weather. One day its snowing, then 3 days later its 90+ degrees. Then we had 2 weeks of 70+ degree weather and now its 40 degrees? I think I need to move somewhere that's consistent with weather.

Today I wanted to let everyone know that one of my favorite Nook books is on sale. It's just the first book but maybe if you read it you will be tempted to buy the other 3.

I guess I should also review the books since I'm sitting here claiming that I love them sooo much. =)




Bound, Punished, Possessed, Oppressed
Kira Saito

REVIEW:
 I am reviewing these books together because of how quickly I read them. I just got the first book because it was free for the Nook. I finished the first book in a few hours and begged my fiance to let me buy the next one. In all, I finished all 4 books in about 3 days. They aren't very long but they also aren't very short. The idea of the book and the plot line are very creative and unique. A lot of research went into these books. There are some grammatical errors but those can be over looked because of how great the books are. The main character is pulled entirely from her almost normal life into something from the wildest fantasy novels imagined. She has to decide what decisions to make, who she should save, and who she should sacrifice. I was taken on an emotional roller-coaster and found myself wanting more. These is supposed to be a fifth book in the works right now. I CANNOT wait to read it!

COVER:
I do like the covers. But Arelia is supposed to be a mixed race girl with darker skin. The girl in the covers is very pale. I do not like how all the covers are the same background just with a color change and the girl is moved to a different position.

And it's been awhile...

So... It's been a long time since I've been on here. Between work and life I just haven't had much down time to write about what I've been reading. This is going to be an attempt to catch up with what I've read since the last book I posted a review for.



Shade, Shift & Shine
Jeri Smith-Ready

REVIEW:
I'm going to review these three books together because they were all equally amazing. The Author surprised me with the actual details she used. I live in the state that these books are based in and that is what drew me into them. The story line and plot is amazing. So much work had to have gone into these books but the outcome was breath-taking. The ideas were entirely original and that is very hard to find anymore. I would recommend these books to anyone who enjoys Young Adult Paranormal Romance. The books combine high school life, love, adventure and so many more aspects. I give ALL of the books 5/5 stars.









Bree's Fire
Eva Roy

REVIEW:
I'm not entirely sure how to review this book. It was good but it was pretty much your typical normal girl finds out she has paranormal powers, girl goes away to a school for people with powers/normal kids, girl falls in-love with guy who has powers too. I like the fact that Bree's best friend gets to go with her to the "special" school. I don't like that fact that there are so many books out there surrounding this topic. The book was good, don't get me wrong, but I think the subject has been over used and should be put to rest. I give the book 3.5/5 stars.







RANDOM STUFF:
I just wanted to take some time and share some pictures and thoughts. The first picture I would love to share is my bookshelf in my new room. The room has built-in shelves so that made me very very happy.

I have added and removed a few books since taking this picture but you get the idea. And, yes, I'm also a Hello Kitty fanatic.


These are a few books I gave recently gotten from PaperBackSwap =) I'm currently starting my summer reading collection.


I will periodically post pictures of the books I get from Ukazoo, PaperBackSwap, Thrift stores and Barnes and Noble.












These are the roses my fiance got me randomly. Aside from reading, my fiance is my life. He is the greatest guy in the world and I love him with everything I have. We've been together for over 3 years now and I can't imagine a day without him. 







My birthday is also in a few days. April 26th. I will be 24 =(. God I feel old.
