Idolizing In: House of Night Series, Book 7

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 323 | Release Date: April 2010 | Publisher: St. Martin's Press

"Burned" [House of Night Series, Book 7] by P. C. Cast & Kristin Cast

My Book Summary : Zoey/Heath/Stark - Heath and Stark test their own strength at finding ways to save Zoey. Yet, Stark is still among the living and Heath is dead with Zoey in the Otherworld. Will Stark be able to get to them in time (only seven days) before Zoey will physically die? Or will Nefert & Kalona win by finally getting Zoey out of their way?

Aphrodite/Nerd Herd/Darius - All are trying to help Stark with finding a way to save Zoey. Aphrodite is learning more about what is means to be a Prophetess of Nyx by accepting her abilities more and trying to hold everyone together while Zoey is away.

Stevie Rae - As the only one left in Tulsa she is trying to help in her own way. However, while she wants to help Zoey, her own world is coming down around her. She begins a love triangle that she really can't explain. Especially with secrets, starting between her first boyfriend and her might just tear her world apart. Then to top things off the "evil" red fledglings are doing more damage then she knows how to deal with and its up to her to stop them before things get even more out of hand.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars! As always I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!! This is one of my favorite series! The House of Night series keeps you on your toes, makes you curious as to what will happen next, and this book was no different. I really wish it had a couple 100+ more page in it so I didn't have to finish. This series has evolved so much that it changed from a first person story to reading from six different points-of-views. The best part about that is the authors have not fallen off track from the plot at all with it jumping around so much. It was just ..... awesome ... Awesome ... AWESOME!!! *hehee* I laughed and I definitely cried ..... and I already CANNOT wait until the next book of this series comes out! =0) Zoey + Stark = ♥ | Zoey + Heath = ♥ | Stevie Rae + her new "man" = ♥

My Previous Review(s) for this Series : Book 6

Book Teaser :
Stevie Rae looked from vampyre to vampyre. "Y'all need to get your shit together. Here's a newsflash from the only High Priestess you have left at this dang school: Zoey isn't dead. And believe me, I know dead. I've been there, done that, and got the frickin' T-shirt." ~ within Chapter 7

"Bite Me" [The Demon Underground Series, Book 1] by Parker Blue

My Book Summary : Eighteen-year-old Valentine (Val) has grown up being an outsider, even to her own family. You see ... her mother and father were married ... once ... but it didn't work out, especially when Val's father just happens to be part incubus demon ... making Val part succubus demon. And even though that's not her fault her mother has never forgiven her for that.

Now, because her little half-sister snuck into Val's vehicle without her knowledge while she was vampire hunting, she is getting kicked out of her parents home and can't work at the family bookstore anymore. Who will she turn to when the only people she really knows is her family? And what will she do for a living and finding a place to live ... when she's only eighteen and can kill vampires?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! The book was more then I could have hoped for!! Entertaining and ACTION PACKED! The characters were awesome! Well, except the mother was a bitch and her sister was a little annoying. *hehee* What will it be .... Val & Dan? Or Val & Shade? I think I'll be happy with either right now. =0)

"Fallen" [Fallen Series, Book 1] by Lauren Kate

My Book Summary : Luce has known things have been following her ever since she was a little kid, but talking about it to others has just forced her to take medication and see doctors. However, now it has landed her into Sword & Cross boarding school, after an incident happened leaving the person with her dead. While at this new school that is completely worn down she meets Daniel, she is drawn to him instantly but he keeps pushing her away as much as possible. Will things change for them? Or will her past and the things around her come back to haunt her?

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars. For how long the book is, it sometimes seems to repeat itself and never move on. In addition, for all the hype about the book, it wasn't worth the money, so I would pick it up at a library if your interested in seeing it. Sorry -- I just wasn't impressed. Yet .. I will say the ending did leave me a bit intrigued.

    Format: Paperback | Pages: 293 | Release Date: May 2009 | Publisher: Razorbill

    "Strange Angels" [Strange Angels Series, Book 1] by Lilith Saintcrow

    My Book Summary: Dru has been hunting bad "creatures" with her father, ever since he came back to get her after her grandmother died. It helps that she has psychic abilities (or what her grandmother called "the touch") to help him out, but since she's only 16 yrs old he doesn't bring her to all of huntings. However, after one such hunting that he told her she couldn't attend, he doesn't come home, and when he finally does he is no longer himself anymore.

    Now Dru has to look out for herself and she's scared out of her wits as to where she can go and who she can trust. Thankfully her friend Graves, who recently got turned into a werwulf, won't take no for an answer when it comes to helping her out at any cost.

    Still, what will she do to find the person to changed her father? And once she does find that person, will Dru be able to get her revenge or will she suffer the same fate as her dad?


    My Book Review: 2.5 out of 5 stars. It was ok ... but not as good as I would have hoped. =0P When there were action scenes I was really able to stay interested and I liked the book. However, there were way to many slow scenes in between that I wasn't sure if I would have been able to finish the book. Meaning for some parts I really had to force myself to see how it ended. Hopefully "Jealousy", aka Book 2, is better.

    Out of the darkness and into the sun. But I won't forget all the ones that I loved. I'll take a risk, take a chance, make a change ... and breakaway

    Format: Hardcover | Pages: 323 | Release Date: March 2010 | Publisher: Hyperion Books

    "Hex Hall" [Hex Hall Series, Book 1] by Rachel Hawkins -- When Sophie turned twelve, over three years ago, she turned full into her powers and became a witch. As happens to all prodigium ("just a fancy Latin word for monsters") around that age.

    But recently she preformed another spell-gone-wrong at current school. Now it was one messed up spell too many, so her parents and the Council are having her move into Hecate Hall, a place that "rehabilitates" misbehaving adolescents or those who cannot control what they can do.

    However, by the first day Sophie makes friends with the school outcast (also her roommate), enemies with the three most popular girls, and gets a crush on the "bad-boy" heartthrob. That's only the beginning .... along comes a pesky ghost, and then there are three organizations that are out to kill any prodigium people .... especially Sophie.

    3.5 out of 5 stars. Great book! I loved the characters .... Jenna is AWESOME!!! Definitely I want to read the second book, "Demonglass", when it gets released!

    This book also reminded me of the Evernight Series ... just a bit ... minus the whole main character being a vamp. *shrug*

    I don’t know but I think I maybe fallin’ for you. Dropping so quickly, maybe I should keep this to myself, waiting ’til I know you better.

    Format: Hardcover | Pages: 267 | Release Date: August 2004 | Publisher: Delacorte Press

    "The Immortal Highlander" [The Highlander Series, Book 6] by Karen Marie Moning -- In this novel Ms. Moning took Adam Black from villain Book 1 (and maybe a few others in this series) and made him the hero! Basically Adam had been a considerable grievance to the Faery Queen in fighting against the High Council and her to save a mortals life, and because of that she punished him by taking his powers away, making him human, and making him invisible to all the mortals around him for an unknown period of time.

    After a couple of months later at an impasse of what he might do to let the Faery Queen give back his immortality, a sidhe-seer named Gabrielle (Gabby) gets caught looking at him and he realizes she might just be able to save him.

    Gabby tries to fight off his lure, but with his charms he is hard to keep resisting, and she just might be falling for one of the "things" her grandmother had told her always to stay away from. But what will happen once Adam gets his powers back? And with someone on Adam's tail trying to kill him over centuries old arguments while he's in human form, will they even survive before they get Adam to speak to the Queen?

    4.5 out of 5 stars! It's a wonderful love story! Loved the characters! In addition, if you are a fan of the Fever series then you MUST read this book since it will give you a little more background info on Darroc -- why he was punished the way he was and how he started becoming what he is now.

    My Previous Review(s) for this Series: Book 1

    WWW Wednesdays [April 21, 2010]


  • Today's WWW Wednesdays by MizB - click here


  • My Personal Q&A:
    • What are you currently reading?
      "The Immortal Highlander" [The Highlander Series, Book 6] by Karen Marie Moning -- I'm half-way through the book now and I LOVE it! It's already so much better then "Beyond the Highland Mist", probably because this book is more like Karen's Fever series and I am addicted to that series.
    • What did you recently finish reading?
      I recently stopped reading "The Third Kiss: Dorian's Dream" [Third Kiss Series, Book 1] by Heather Killough-Walden, but technically I haven't finished reading it yet. It's a horror-romance type of book and it's a little to graphic on the horror side for me. Plus it has to many characters point-of-views that you read from that made it kind of boring and making the plot somewhat lost for me. *shrug* At someday I might finish the book but there are others I'll probably be reading first.
    • What do you think you’ll read next?
      "Strange Angels" [Strange Angels Series, Book 1] by Lilith Saintcrow -- This series has been coming up on my recommended list from Amazon.com for a while, and now I'm finally going to be reading it! YAY!
