Place where I come to post my book reviews.

Very interesting start so far I really love the heroine Jet, and I am loving Will as well. I love that the main character can talk and understand animals. And also that the animals talk back. I love how hard Jet is trying to fit in, and that she has insecurities like everyone else. And I am really loving Jet and Will's interactions, and how he likes to tease her. Trying to figure out some of the other characters such as Charlotte or Charlie as she is called. As well as Morwenna.. I don't trust Morwenna at all that, I guess I will hopefully find out if I am wrong or right in regards to her. Charlie I feel is going to be the one that starts out as being one thing but turns out totally different.
I guess you can't give all books 4 or 5 stars. I thought I would really enjoy this book more, so I guess that's why I am sad that I couldn't give this book such a score. I did finish the book but I skipped about 50 pgs, and I hate doing that.
Owen is such a sweetie and of course he was my favorite, I loved the dream he has and I hope it happens for him. I also really started to like Hanne more but I hate that it took until almost the end of the book for that to happen. I still didn't care that much for her sister Sissel, hopefully in other books she starts to be so less fragile and help around more. Maybe that will come when she gets her power whatever that may be.
I did like the ending and I also hope Owen and Hanne get a happy ending. And I hope the rest of Hanne's family gets a happy ending as well. I also loved that it didn't end in a cliffhanger, but leaves things open ended.
I would love to think the Author and publisher as well as Netgalley for granting me my request for this book. My grade for this book is my own and no one else's.
I think I will read the next one whenever it comes out even with my low rating for the first book. Because I do want to see what happens next in the book.
Starting to w a little bit better, just still not that much action and adventure that I like to have in books that I read. Of course people are getting killed, but I thought there would be more deaths then what their have been. I am sure that more individuals will die before this book is over.
I do like Owen just like I thought I would, I am not sure if his going to be one of my book boyfriends. I just think his to sweet, and I like a guy that is more sure of themselves, and has a little bit of some bad boy in them. I also like Hanne's family but Sissel gets on my nerves, I hope she gets better in this book, to me so far she seems pretty fragile.
I am still trying to finish this book though, just to see how this one ends.
I hope this book starts to get better soon, so far its been pretty boring besides in a couple of spots. Not sure if I even have a favorite yet. Owen I think so far is the closest, then Stieg would be a very close second.
I am going to try and read a little bit more, I at least want to get to where Hanne and Owen first meet, I read some reviews and they said that's when the book starts to get much better.
I liked the book more at the beginning, the middle was boring to me, and then it got more exciting at the end. The middle to me was so boring that I skipped some to see if it got more exciting at the end. I feel really sad because I really wanted to love the book more than I did, because I read so many great reviews of the book.
I would have to say that I really loved the main character of Nona a lot and I felt so bad about all she went through at such a young age. I think she had a lot of courage for such a young girl. There are a lot of interesting characters such as, Arabella, Jula, Clera, Hessa, Sister Apple, Sister Kettle, and Mistress Blade, etc.
I did like the book enough that I would give the next book in the series a chance, and hopefully I will enjoy that one more. I liked the plot of the book and I was pretty surprised by something's that happened and something's weren't surprising at all, but rather things that you would excepted to happen.
So while this book wasn't my favorite book ever, I still enjoyed it enough to continue on, like I mentioned above.
I really did enjoy this book even though it was very strange that illusions can be murdered, and even though they do explain how, I still am not sure if I understand it completely.
My favorite character was Luca, something that we found out about him was part of the reason I gave the book only 4 and not 5 stars. It wasn't anything that he did wrong, and that's all I will say on that or this review will go into the spoiler territory. Luca is definitely a new book boyfriend for me.
I liked Sorina but certain things she did in the book I either didn't understand why she did them or she did things to make me mad. I loved that there were illustrations of the difference illusions with a description of each of them. That last illusion that was murdered was the saddest for me, probably because that one was on the pages longer. So I got to know that one a lot more. The murderer was a little bit of a surprise, but looking back it really shouldn't have been.
I still really loved the book and I would definitely recommend this book to people to read. Oh my favorite illusions would have to be Tree and Crown.
This book caught my attention due to the intriguing topic. I am really hoping I will enjoy it, but so far I am not really sure how I am feeling about the book. I don't hate it but I am confused on how the illusions can be killed. Hopefully as I get further along it will be explained ,so I can understand it.
I do like Sorina she is most definitely a different heroine, then the ones I am use to reading about in books. Luca whom I believe might be Sorina's love interest, has been only on the scene for a few pages. But from those few pages he has made an impression on me. He seems like his going to become one of my book boyfriends, at least so far I feel that's going to be the case.
More to come later.
Pretty interesting so far. I am so happy that some of the characters from her series the Fourth Element are in this book. I am so happy that we get to find out what has happened to them since that series ended. It was one of my favorite series ever. So I am hoping I can have at least like if not love this new series.
I actually haven't had a chance to read the first book in this series, so I am a little lost, so I would say to read the first book before this one. I forget that I didn't finish the first one, and I also forgot that I was supposed to do a book tour for this book that I am reading now. I also just got my internet turned back on so, I just haven't been able to read this book before now, since I thought I downloaded this one but didn't, so I had to wait to also downloaded this once we got the internet turned back on.
So later I will go back and read the first book to find out what all that I missed.
Where moving to another place we were living in a trailer park and now we're renting a house. So I won't have internet until they can come and put it on. I will check in once in awhile if I am somewhere that has internet connection, until mine is back on. Hopefully that won't take to long. So I will actually have time to catch up on my reading. See you all soon!!!!!
Chapter 4 (Reading Excerpt #1)
I glanced up, unable to move. A chill shot down my spine. Chadwick Kapule stood at the counter, his honey brown eyes piercing into me. He and I dated the last two years of high school. I’d broken it off after we graduated because of his jealously issues.
Chad had been one of the hottest guys in our class, so all the chicks used to crush on him. Not only was Chad sexy—he could charm you right out of your panties. I was one of the few who ignored him. At the end of our sophomore year, he pursued me. Eventually, I gave in, letting him take me out at the start of junior year. Chad’s rep was a known fact around campus. He’d sleep with girls, then dump them. Knowing this, plus everyone’s impending future of being betrothed, I never planned on getting serious. Students were buzzing that I had been Chad’s longest relationship. I wasn’t giving out, but Chad never pressed me for sex. I was the one that decided to explore my curiosity. After we’d been dating for several months, I lost my virginity to him.
Figuring he’d lose interest since we had done the deed, I avoided him in school the next day—ignoring his slew of texts. Finally, Chad cornered me, demanding to know why I’d been dodging him. I shrugged and told him point blank. “I’ve satisfied my curiosity.… What’s there to talk about? Thought we would be on the same page.”
Chad gawked, flustered, his cheeks beet red. Fumbling over his words, he’d said, “Are you serious? You’re not gonna talk to me anymore because we had sex?”
I nodded, but telling Chad that backfired. Not giving up, he charmed me until I agreed to be in a serious relationship with him exclusively. By being with him, I learned that challenging a man only made them want you more. With my blunt, no-nonsense personality, I had no problem telling him off. If he pissed me off, I’d hang up on him, ignore his texts, and avoid him in school. The gossip continued that Chad was a changed man. I cared about him at that time. But knowing what my future held when I turned twenty-one, I kept a leash on my feelings.
Chad didn’t seem to grasp reality, and his jealousy issues had no boundaries. When he got mad, nine times out of ten, it was due to him being jealous. If a guy even looked at me for too long, there was trouble. This went on for a year and a half.
Chadwick took it hard when I broke up with him. It took months before he backed off. Two weeks ago, I’d seen him at a restaurant. Tobias had taken me out to eat and Chad looked very unhappy. I didn’t even acknowledge him on our way out. Ever since, he’d started harassing me again, blowing up my cell and texting like crazy. Now he appeared right in front of me.
Chadwick narrowed his eyes. “I had to come to your job, since you’ve been ignoring my calls.”
“I was courteous to return your first couple of texts, Chad.”
“You promised we would stay friends.”
I rolled my eyes. “I did. But we’re not together anymore, so we don’t need to talk every day.”
“You told me there’s no point in having a relationship. Cuz after our twenty-first birthday we’d be separated. I let you go, knowing your logic made sense. Yet, I see you with that cocksucker, all goo-goo eyes.” He snorted. “Sounds like you’re a hypocrite. You better not be dating that clown.”
Going into this book I didn't really think I was going to like it, just because its not the type of book I usually go with. I just don't like books with a lot of sex in it, don't get me wrong I like sex in my book, but not a crazy amount. But I did really like Sarah J Maas's first book in the series of A Court of Thorns and Roses, and that one had a shut load of sexy!!!!! So not surprising I really did enjoy this book even though I loved Sarah's book more. I gave this book 4 stars even though it's more of a 3 1/2 star one, but I rounded it up to 4 due to the ending!!!!!
I am not really sure which guy's I want the two main girl characters to be with. I really like Cade the most so far for Cali, not sure whom I want Stefani, with. The guys for Cali are Cade and Zion. And the other two guys are Tobias and Dom.
The book was interesting due to the fact that the couple's have to go to different island's and date other individuals, if they want to be with their choice of whom to marry and not who the government chooses.
I think I am more torn on whom I want Cali with then whom I want Stefani with. Because Zion is my other favorite in the book, he figures things out before anyone else does. The beginning was slow and I really was going to do a dnf but I decided to keep going and I am so glad I did, because the last half of the book was pretty awesome.
I really can't wait to see what happens next in this series, what's going to happen now that they know what is going on at the island, of course Cade and Tobias are still in the dark, since there on another island.
I am so happy that I took a chance on this book, and that I was chosen to take part on the tour for this one.
