Good reads summary:
The story of a young heiress’s initiation into the dark society of the Chicagoland Vampires continues…
Ten months after vampires revealed their existence to the mortals of Chicago, they’re enjoying a celebrity status usually reserved for the Hollywood elite. But if people learn about the Raves-mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle—the citizens will start sharpening their stakes.
So now it’s up to the new vampire Merit to reconnect with her upper class family and act as liaison between humans and bloodsuckers, and keep the more unsavory aspects of the vampire lifestyle out of the media. But someone doesn’t want peace between them—someone with an ancient grudge…
I thought the first book in this series was amazing and I really wanted to read the second book.
To be honest I had a little trouble getting into the story, I missed the exciting beginning the first book had.
But getting into the story I just fell in love again with the characters. The story just picks up were it left in the first book.
Merit is still trying to figure out what she feels for Ethan sullivan and Morgan and of course still trying to figure out her new vampire life.
I just realy loved the story and I can’t wait for the next book!!

Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid.
When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?
But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid’s life is far less exotic. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven’t stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess getup complete with whip and wings. And she can’t have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy’s life. At least there’s her day job at a local bookstore–free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can’t.
But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle’s demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won’t help because Georgina’s about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny…
I loved this book, I picked up this book after reading the summary on amazon. I really liked the story and decided to buy a copy of the book.
It’s been on my shelve for a month or two but I decided to pick it up and I haven’t regret it ever since. I love Georgina!! She is amazing!
I was a bit affraid that the story would be all about sex because Georgina is a succubus but it didn’t! And until the end I never figured out who was behind the murders.
I hope the second book will be just as good as this one I can’t wait to read it!

So I’m a really big fan of series, I read a lot of them but the thing I hate the most about them is the fact that I have to wait for the next book to come out.
A lot of books I didn’t write a review of and that really sucks because I can’t look back and say hey I really liked this part but I hated that part etc. So maybe I will re-read those books and write a review after, or maybe I’ll just keep it this way.
But at this moment there are a lot of books I’m waiting for, here is my list of must reads:
– Last Sacrifce ( Vampire academy ) By Richelle mead (comes out December 7th )
– Forever by Maggie Stiefvater ( comes out July 2011 )
– Darkest Mercy ( wickeld lovely series ) by Melissa Marr ( comes out march 2011 )
Of course there are a lot of other books I really want to read but these three are the books I’m really waiting for at the moment. But I know these books will be worth waiting for, so for now I’ll read the books I already have and enjoy them!
Grace and Sam must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping dangerous secrets. For Sam, it means grappling with his werewolf past …and figuring out a way to survive the future. But just when they manage to find happiness, Grace finds herself changing in ways she could never have expected…
When I first started this book I didn’t think it would ever be better than shiver. But I was wrong! This book just gets me from the first page to the last. It makes me smile and it makes me cry. A very good second book in a series.
The new characters in the book are amazing and I really want to know how their lives go on after this book. It’s really fun to read the book and find you’re actually reading the story from four diffrent points of view. I really loved how the relationships between the diffrent characters grew and became more complicated. And the ending just killed me, why did it have to be so sad? I can’t wait for the next book to come out.

I am a beast.
A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright—a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.
You think I’m talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It’s no deformity, no disease. And I’ll stay this way forever—ruined—unless I can break the spell.
Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I’ll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly.
Review: Spoiler alert
As a fan of the Disney version of Beauty and the Beast I was curious about this book. And it didn’t dissapoint me that’s for sure.
At first I really hated the main character, he was arrogant and really acted like a spoiled brat. But as the book went on I started to like him, the little changes he went through after he was turned into a beast.
At the ending I could only hope he would find a girl to break the curse for him. And when he did find her but let her go I could just cry. Luckily this story has a happy ending. After reading the book I can’t wait to see the movie that’s comming out next year.

As readers of series starter City of Bones already know, teenager Clary Fray is a Shadowhunter, a demon slayer who has the gift (?) of spotting Downworlder werewolves, vampires, and faeries. She is also an adolescent in an abnormally dysfunctional family: Her mom is in a magically induced coma and her father is probably insane and undoubtedly evil. All of which places Clary in situations that would challenge even the most talented average American girl
I loved this book! You get sucked into the story right away and putting the book down isn’t an option because you really want to know how the story ends.
I loved how the story between Jace and Clary went on, my heart really goes out to them, I can’t imagine how it must feel to be in their situation. But the story takes you through their lives and makes you feel wat they feel.
And than I read a name I knew from the Infernal devices series. It made me even more curios for the second book in that series. But this book is amazing and I can’t wait to read the third book!

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder – much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing – not even a smear of blood – to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know….
Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.
I loved this book!!! It wasn’t even hard to get into the story. I just started reading and couldn’t put it away, so now I’m starting the second book in the series. The characters are all wonderful and you are curious to what happens to them next.
The book ends beautiful and you really want to know what’s going to happen next. I really like the world this story is set in, it’s something diffrent from all the things I’ve read before.
