Review: First Light: Lightbearer Series Prequel Na (New Adult)

Hey Guys,

I had a great birthday started work at 4 in the morning went to my nans and ate cake with my family my parents bought because the cake I cook failed been a while but I did get a kindle fire in blue and that was the best gift my parents ever bought me.

Genre: Na (New Adult), werewolves 

Rating: 4/5 stars 

​You may be surprised by my rating because most of my ratings are between 5.5/5 stars and 6.5/5 stars but for this its a 4 star it doesn’t mean that I didn’t like this book it means that there are somethings that I didn’t really understand.
I did like that she did a two different types of werewolves and explained it in pretty much the first two chapters I did ship Sabine and James but I was expecting by the title that Xander and Sabine to be together also it was slow paced and then the romance between James and Sabine don’t get me wrong some books insta love is amazing but for me it was just too quick.
Am I going to read the next book?
Yes because I am curious to see what happens next I was told about this book by a booksagramer and was told it’s free on kindle please read it so I thought why not it’s free and I’m always looking for recommendations and I am glad I did.
Wasn’t sure about her being pregnant though I do wish there was more than one book it kinda reminds me alot of Fae Guard alot I don’t know if anyone else thinks so if you do let me know in the comments below and also you opinion on the book aswell.
The reason why this review is so short is because I want to squeeze in the tags I’ve recently been tag in but I need to post the old ones I have answered but not yet published.

The Secret Series 1-2 books By Jessica Soresen

Hey Guys,

I am currently since Monday been doing a Gilmore Girls Marathon and drinking lots of coffee I am currently on season 2 episode 7 and on my sixth cup of coffee I know too much caffeine which is bad for my migraines but that won’t stop me this post is my book update, book reviews and book recommendations wow I know.

I have only read two books which I have reread this month I absolutely love Ella and Micha romance they adore each other it’s a kind of romance every women dreams of I rated them 6.5/5 stars if you haven’t read this NA (New Adult book) then I highly recommend it but I don’t if you are younger than 18+ plus I don’t want to get blamed for it.

This is is about Ella and Micha they have been friends since they were 8 and started it like each other when they were 14/15 years old and made an oath that they would never leave Star Grove and create a life for themselves until they hit 16/17 and Ella ran away after standing on a bridge nearly about to jump until Micha stops her and they kiss and Ella leaves Star Grove and goes to Vegas and leaves her Rule breaker and Fiery attitude behind her and becomes someone who follows the rules until but then it hits the summer holiday and has no where to go but home.                                                                       Ella has fears that as soon as she goes home that everything she has worked to bury will surface when especially with Micha right next door making her remember the best parts of her past,

thats all I am going to say The blurb for the first book is better but I am going into more detail so you can see why I love this book The Secret of Ella And Micha blurb here and The Forever Ella and Micha blurb here I have also done a review for the second book I am planning to review the book at some point Review: The forever or Ella and Micha book 2: By Jessica Sorensen 

I am planning to read next:

I decided to pause the other books I have been reading because this is going to surprise you Jeanie (which is Jen) has given me a reading slump so I went to my go to book that gets me out of my reading slump which is this book series before you ask I will be continue reading the other books as soon as I have finish the series which in my case will be soon.

 

So this is the order of what book I am going to read them I know it looks like lots of books and surprising on how many books based on four characters but if it like the first two books then I am excited.

Let me know below if you want me to make more of these posts and also what do you think of Jessica Sorensen books and what are you currently reading I am curious.

Happy Reading

Review: The Notebook  (The Notebook #1) By Nicolas Sparks 

Hey Guys,

My review may seem small but Jen told me not to write a essay and to stick to three paragraphs so I think I have. (Not)
I rated this 6.5 / 5 stars this is my absolute favourite book EVER I’m literally still crying from the ending this is a love story that leaves you with so many feels I hope that when I find someone that will love me like Noah loves Allie I think every girl/women have this as a relationship goal.
I do feel sorry for Noah losing Allie  and when she finally returns she engaged to a lawyer you know if she returns to see him it’s because she wants to be with him I love the way they end up falling inlove again and again when they are elderly due to Allie’s Alzheimer’s which I really hate because every time she forgets Noah it makes him upset  but the ending she remembers him on there fourth ninth anniversary.
Also what Janice the nurse said was what I would say Noah is amazing dealing with Allie’s Alzheimer’s pretending to be someone else and reads the story of how they fell in love to try and get her to remember I don’t know how he handles it when she forgets again.

It was nice to read both versions I am curious to see if Allie and Noah are mentioned in the sequel.
Also Lon when he stopped a court case to try win ally back you knew it was too late for him but I did feel a little sorry for him but not has much as I did for Noah in every part that he got upset my favourite scene has to be the boat scene I just thought it was really romantic. 

Basically you’ll cry on every page I didn’t expect to like this when watching the movie I don’t know why but I love it I maybe reading this alot in the future. (Definitely will)
I am planning to read the sequel very soon if you didn’t know there was it’s called The Wedding it’s based on Wilson Lewis who is Allie and Noah’s son-in-law Wilson is trying to win Janes heart again. 

Let me know below what you thought of this book/ movie your favourite Nicolas Sparks also what classic books do you recommend.

Review: Forever With You (Wait For Me By Jennifer L. Armentrout 

Hey Guys,


I rated this 6.5 / 5 stars I am just going to say it no one can say that this book is amazing heartbreaking, tearworthy, romantic no one can say that they don’t like this book NO ONE.
Going into this book I literally didn’t know anything about this book only that the two main characters Nick and Stephanie I was very surprised that Stephanie would be pregnant I was really excited to read about it until a few more chapters where she miscarriaged the baby which I have never read about before in books but what I love about this book is how Nick helps Stephanie deal with the lost of their child I couldn’t stop crying it was so heartbreaking.
Avery and Cam where also having a child luckily there’s survived and they called her Ava which would have been amazing but you can’t help but feel bad for Stephanie she may say she is ok but when she was at Avery and Cams wedding they kiss their daughter when they go to the end of the alter and she was thinking one day and cried I couldn’t imagine what she was going through.
I was happy that we finally got to saw Avery and Cam get married I wish that we go to read there version of them getting married and when little Ava born when Jennifer added together with Stephanie dealing with what losing a child I suppose it was showing that she was dealing with it. 
I don’t think I will be reading book 6 not now anyway after reading this book I decided that I had to read a different genre no because I disliked the book I loved it the blot was a great Idea (it was just a very sad thing that had to happen).
That’s all I can say I am literally crying just review that little bit.
Happy Reading

Review: Fall With Me (Wait For Me, Book 4) By Jennifer L. Armentrout

Hey Guys,

wp-image--485503685

So far I have reached 74/100 on my goodreads reading goal which I am really pleased with ideally I would like to reach my goal by reading 24 more books but I don’t know if I am that much of a quick reader anyway onto the review.

I don’t know why I am doubting that the book I am currently reading in the series to be better than the previous book but I was wrong my rating is obviously the same as the other books in the series 6.5/5 stars I love how Jennifer links all the old characters to the new characters and how she can come up with different storylines if you have read my previous review Stay With Me you know I haven’t read the blurb for this the reason why is because it kind of spoils the story I wait until the end of the book and guess the two main characters and my friend will let me know if I am correct.

 

As you guessed I didn’t know why Roxy was mad at Reese all I know is until she said it when they were talking outside I was very surprised after how much she avoided him but I suppose she was mad he turned up at the hospital Charlie was I have to talk about Charlie I know most people care about Charlie but he was one of the important characters in my book even though he didn’t really move or talk he was Roxy’s best friend and I hated Henry for what he did to Charlie and wish as Roxy he stayed in prison but on the bright side I was glad he was there to help Roxy with that freak Kip I was surpised it was him I though it was strange how he knew her name and ran in after the police came about the break in I knew something wasn’t right about him but he was so freaky in a scary way I was very worried that Reese wouldn’t make it in time.

 

I was surprised that Isaac name was mentioned I have a feeling he maybe in the next book but I do feel annoyed that Kip didn’t go to prison but was murdered by Isaac’s men anyway back to Reese and Roxy I love the way Reese try’s to win Roxy over by starting over and I laughed when he went to the Mona’s and drank water after what he thought happened with Roxy and him one night Reese had a hard time dealing with things he has done as a cop and it makes me sad that he cannot forgive himself for it but I am glad that they ended up together I have to talk about predictions that Katie has told Calla, Jax and Roxy, Reese now Nick that he will fall in love with Steph which I personally can’t wait to read about from what I have read in the book Nick isn’t interested in a relationship but I had to laugh that there was a chance he would end up with Aimee.

Fangirl By Rainbow Rowell

Hey Guys,

download.jpg I am currently watching one of my shows on Netflix The Musketeers it’s based on the french revulsion which is one of my favourite history subjects probably the nerd in me which also reminds me that I need to buy the book of it.

I am rating this 6.5/5 has I would have if I first read this and also reviewed for the same reason Fangirl is one of my absolute favourite of Rainbow Rowell works and I always talk about this book I cannot tell you how many times I have recommend this book to people it’s a very romantic novel its YA and a Contemporary there’s also a sequel called Carry On which is based on the main character Cath’s Fanfiction my friend told me my review is more like a discussion so be prepare I go into depth.

People ask me why do you love Fangirl and my answer is she’s a lot like me loves writing Fanfiction loves to read and prefers not to go out partying and drinking (not drinking isn’t me) prefers to stay at home and also because of Levi he’s is my fictional boyfriend fair enough he’s older than her but not by that much I’ve also been asked when did I like Levi and I said from the very first page he might not read books but he loves them when Cath reads it to him his also selfless willing to help others my favourite scene to prove it is when he leaves work to help Cath to go to the hospital to see her dad which would have possibly made him lose his job.

I have been hearing alot of hate comments about him kissing another girl if he could do it once there’s a chance he would do it again and I agree there is a high chance he could but he explained that he drank alot and wanted Cath which isn’t a good enough reason but he did try his hardest to prove himself but when he did kiss the other girl I wasn’t expecting that but I didn’t dislike him for it because technically he wasn’t cheating because they weren’t even a couple but I do understand because Kiss someone means alot especially to romantics like me if you kiss someone its because you like that person alot.

Has I said in my reading update my favourite sentence of Levi’s has to be…..
‘”Cather”
Back up to his eyes.
“you know that I am falling for you right?”‘
I can absolute love when he finally admits it and you have to wait until it about 84% way into the book but it does annoy me that Cath didn’t say it back I mean after everything that happens all the stuff he’s done for her the way she talks about him it just really bugged me.

Was anyone else not surprised that Reagan was not really mad at Cath for kissing Levi has she said when Cath mentioned him as Reagan’s boyfriend she replied “his not my boyfriend” I said to my friend Jen I knew they weren’t you could tell by how they acted they were only friends and Levi was trying to empress Cath he wouldn’t have done it in front of Reagan if they where dating.

Can I just stop talking about them and talk about Wren (Cath’s twin) she is totally out of control I’m not judging just saying when it does to the extent of her having to go hospital that is pretty bad I’m glad that Cath and Wren made up I did feel bad for Cath and Wren having to deal with jerks (guys) when they see them has twins I am so glad that guy got punched he deserved it but I do understand why Wren cut her hair and dressed different.

I think that it’s best I stop there or I’ll talk about every page otherwise hope you enjoyed the review let me know what you think of the book also what Rainbow Rowell’s books are you favourite.

Reviewing Roping The Virgin (Cowboys & Virgins, #2) By Alexa Riley

Hey Guys,

wp-image-293073171 Ok I admit when ever I plan to read books I end up ignoring what I say I just can’t help it my friend Jenny was convincing me to read all her favourite books and review them and I am actually getting into the NA genre which is surprising since I wasn’t planning on reading this genre anyway onto the review.

I rated this book 6.5/5 stars I love these books this is the second book from Branding the Virgin this is Blake’s version after Ty has married MJ I absolutely love this book more than the first one don’t get me wrong Ty and MJ are an adorable couple and he’s is more layed back and out going whereas before MJ he was bad tempered and grumpy but like Blake said it’s like Blake and Ty have switched places as soon as Luciana came into town.

I love how Blake was like from the moment I saw her I knew there was no other women I would want I wish that these book were longer but I love how they end with a year later I was surprise to find out that Blake never had a girlfriend or any type relationship but I do think that Luciana is a perfected match for him even though she did get him into a fight but I did think Blake was going to hurt Brandon but he’s and Dolly’s relationship confuses me but I suppose when I have read the fourth book they will get together I just hate him for flirting with other women when she loves him.

When reading this we got to know more about Trace and Dolly to be honest I wish my next version to read to have been Dolly’s but I am curious to why Trace is being very strange it’s probably a women all the books come to that i suppose can’t wait to read the next book.

Let me know below if you like these book if you are planning on reading them also who is your favouite characters.

Book Review: Stay with me (wait for me \4) By Jennifer L. Armentrout

Hey Guys,

wp-image--717505311

Err I don’t know where to honestly start this review series is just amazing when people say I like the series I don’t agree I love this series and I didn’t think that Jennifer could possibly top the first two books and coming into this book I had really really high expectations and she literally topped my expectations I was really excited that the old characters where in this book and we got to know more about Calla and her life (for those who don’t know Calla in previous book she was in Be With Me which was Tereasa and Jase book she had music with Tess) I didn’t really know what to make of the whole thing about her mother taking drugs and stealing them thing I was shocked that it put in only because it’s not something that’s really mentioned in books but when you get to the end you kind of think I can’t believe Calla had to deal with the whole situation as an 11 year old girl but I am glad that we got to see Jax help her with it and it just shows how hard some people’s lives really are.

 

I just must talk about Jax because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to wait till the end but he is one of my favourite characters I didn’t like how horrible he was being but it was kind of strange that he knew she was monas daughter in the being but yet he was flirting with her and then started to tell her to go back to college I know why he did but he didn’t have to be so rude about it (I’ve heard a lot of hate comments about him being bossy and a stalker and I am going to say something in my review just not now) I wasn’t really surprised that he owned the bar because he was mostly running the place by himself I just though at the end of the book Mona would have put it in his name anyway but apparently she did it earlier than I thought also I love the way Jax was patient with Calla and tried to make her feel safe it was just what every girl wants in a guy and I love the way he was like how cares you have scares they are a part of you I may have cried at some of the scene’s he was just a great guy for her I have to totally agree with Clyde Jax was just the perfect guy to help Calla just realise how much of a great person she is.

 

As I said in the brackets there was a lot of hate comments in the reviews of goodreads and also blogs but I just want to say I respect you opinion and understand why you would say that in a way it kind of is but the reason why he was being bossy (and the right word is Caveman) is because he was trying to get Calla to give him a chance and show her she worthy of being loved (worthy probably not the right word but I can’t find the word I am looking for) and also to ensure her safety would you rather he let her hide away from romance and let her hate herself for being a little rebellious which is silly for me to say because she twenty one but she’s still young that’s why I am saying that I don’t know why on earth you would call him a stalker he was helping her mother Mona go and have the chance to apologies to Calla for all she has done but her mum never had the courage to the very end I love when Jax, Roxy and Katie tease her about her firsts on things she hasn’t done like go to the beach, eating grits, getting wasted and other things also I wasn’t planning on reading this novel but I am glad I did but I am going to cut the Jax and Calla talk because it might make the review too long.

 

But I am going to say I love the way he got the old gang to like him and the end with Jase and Cam also the bub scene I almost died of laughter also I love how Tessa and Avery opened up about the problems they had so that they could get Calla to talk and I hope that when I read the fourth book with Roxy and Reese we get to her about them still because we are differently going to be having Jax and Calla and also Katie which will be interesting but I do like how Jennifer was giving us hints about hows story is next you and I know somethings differently going on between them and I am really curious why they don’t want to be even near each other and somehow they are going to be with each other can’t wait I haven’t read the blurb for the fourth book I just asked my friend how story it was and guessed right.

Overall I rated this a 6.5/5 stars and if you are looking for a good Na recommendation then this is a series for you also I have rated all the books I have read so far and I am planning on rating the last two/three books left I am just sad this series I’d going to read soon let me know below what is your favourite book and why also hows your favourite character/couple.

Happy Birthday

At that time when I was blogging it was just to express my love of reading and fangirling  back then I didn’t have many book readers and those I did I rarely saw due to being in college and not really talking because they were always busy so I didn’t expect to have as many followers as I do now so thank you for following me and being patient with how long it takes me to post.

Heir Of Fire (The Throne Of Glass #3) by sarah j. Maas Review:

Hey guys,

I made this review when I first read this book and has not reallygood at blogging in the beginning this is a very old review but I wanted to make a before review and after so you can see how far I have come in blogging since a year a ago I hope you enjoy this very short review.

At first I thought rowan was an ass. But then I saw the sad side to rowan and the fun side. I like how celeana builds characters how here and rowan both celeana both make each other strong now I don’t know if I’m team chaol or team rowan.
I was finally glad, chaol finally picked celeana side but I think chaol shouldn’t trust celeana cousin he just a bit weird. I hope dorian okay I worried the king will use him to kill people he loves so glad sorsa died she was a completely useless character in the book.
I know it sounds mean but the only thing she done was make Dorian happy for a few days and make him move on from celeana but she also made a stupid plan with him got him caught and died.
Rowan omg what can I say you are freaking awesome I mean a lot I need a Rowan but I not sure about her and him I don’t really think they are suitable she not gotten over my baby chaol I hope that in the next book they act more like friends.
And I can’t wait to see how chaol acts when he sees celeana I know he will totally be happy and they stop this silly fight and stay to together I also hope that celeana and Dorian team up to kick the kings but and Celeana meets her cousin and he’s friends.
That’s all I have to say I really really can’t wait for book four super excited 😆😆 come out already.

I hope you enjoyed this review let me know below if you have read this amazing series and what you thought of it.
