What is the series about:
Goodreads summary of the first book:
When Sophia and Drew McKibben’s parents are killed in a tragic car accident, they are shipped off to live with an aunt they never even knew existed. Believing that they are moving to a privately owned island just off of the coast of Mystic, CT to live alone with her, they are surprised to find a sort of under-aged bed and breakfast.
Sophia draws the attention of one of the locals, Falen, immediately. He always seems to know exactly what she is thinking, and to her frustration, everything she does seems to amuse him. When a newcomer to the island brings with him a sense of deja vu, she begins to ask herself the ultimate question: Am I going crazy?
Sophia’s world starts to unravel when she notices her own brother acting just as abnormal as the rest of them. When she begins to realize that the life she left behind looks even more bizarre then the one she was forced to leave it for, she’s faced with a decision to make: embrace the new life that has been given to her, or drown in the past. Either choice brings with it more secrets and deceptions to unearth. The problem
now is that the two worlds may actually be more intertwined than she thought
Wich books have I read already?
I have read the first two books, I loved them so much! So I hope there will be many more books in this series. The books suck you in and won’t let you go even after you finish the books. I have these books on my e-reader but I’m sure I’m going to buy the books as well as soon as they come out just to have them on my shelves and read them again! If you love books with magic in it than this is your series!
Are there more books coming?
I know there is a third book on the way!

Although Nina Decker’s father is one hundred percent human, her mother is not. She belongs to an ancient and rare race of people called the fae. But these fae are not those written about in fairytales, with pretty gossamer wings and fairy dust, no they are sinister, malevolent and unkind, dwelling in another realm called Nightfall. More prone to destroy than to create. Abandoned at the age of ten, to be raised by her father, Nina has never forgiven her mother for that or for ruining her father. A man of only sixty, he appears to be closer to eighty with a frail body and mind. He’s been fae-struck and is slowly fading away to nothing. This is one of the reasons why Nina has never gotten too close to any one man. She doesn’t want to seal his fate like her father’s has been.
But she can’t deny her fiery connection to Severin Saint Morgan, a sexy as hell werewolf and the alpha of the Vancouver wolf pack. He’s an Australian immigrant working at the university as an associate professor, and the publicized face of the werewolf species. He makes her blood boil with desire and makes her tremble with fear. But its only when her mother reappears with startling revelations about an upcoming war between the fae and the werewolves that Nina realizes that she may be a pawn for both sides
The view of a book addict:
I had a little trouble getting into this book, I like to jump right into the action and this book builds up the tention. But as I read more of the story I really started to like it. The story is beautiful but I didn’t really like the ending. It just ends weird for me and I hope there will be another book that tells more about the people in this book.
The verdict of a book addict:
I good paranormal romance book, I had a little trouble getting into it. But the story grew on me and it got really good!

Booktitle: Lover unleashed ( The black dagger brotherhood )
Author: J.R. Ward
Release date ( if known) : march 29, 2011
Catagory: Fantasy, Vampires
Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, warrior cloth as her brother: A fighter by nature, and a maverick when it comes to the traditional role of Chosen females, there is no place for her on the Far Side… and no role for her on the front lines of the war, either.
When she suffers a paralyzing injury, human surgeon Dr. Manuel Manello is called in to treat her as only he can- and he soon gets sucked into her dangerous, secret world. Although he never before believed in things that go bump in the night- like vampires- he finds himself more than willing to be seduced by the powerful female who marks both his body and his soul.
As the two find so much more than an erotic connection, the human and vampire worlds collide … just as a
centuries old score catches up with Payne and puts both her love and her life in deadly jeopardy
Why do I want to read this book?
I’ve only read the first book in this series, but the rest of the book are on their way. I fell in love with this series by just reading the first book. But I couldn’t pre-order this book on the dutch website at the moment. That’s why this book is on my wishlist.

Pages: 315 ( on my E-reader )
Catagory: Paranormal Romance, steampunk
Sir Merrick Hadrian hunts monsters, both human and supernatural. A Knight of the Order of the Round Table, his use of magick and the technologies of steam power have made him both respected and feared. But his considerable skills are useless in the face of his greatest challenge, guardianship of five unusual children. At a loss, Merrick enlists the aid of a governess.
Miss Caroline Bristol is reluctant to work for a bachelor but she needs a position, and these former street children touch her heart. While she tends to break any mechanical device she touches, it never occurs to her that she might be something more than human. All she knows is that Merrick is the most dangerously attractive man she’s ever met—and out of reach for a mere governess.
When conspiracy threatens to blur the distinction between humans and monsters, Caroline and Merrick must join forces, and the fate of humanity hinges upon their combined skills of steam and sorcery…

The view of a book addict:
I found this book on another blog and I just knew that I had to read this one. So thanks to Netgalley now I did! I’m a huge steampunk fan so that’s what really attracted me to this book firs. And of course the storyline looked great, I wasn’t disappointed because I loved the book. Set in Victorian London this story really speaks to me.
I loved the main characters and the fact that you got to read the story from both their point of views. The story is both romantic and has a lot of action in it. For me this is the best combination in a book
The verdict of a book addict:
This is a great steampunk novel, with lots of action and romance in it. If you’re into Victorian London, Steampunk and Sorcery this is your book!

So I want to try something new called random saturday. Random saturday can be about anything book related. So this weekend I’ll tell a little bit about my love for the bad boys in books.
Why do I like them so much? Well what’s there not to like? I just like to think that every bad boy has his good sides and most of the time that good side shows when the meet a girl they like. They’ll protect her at any cost. Who doesn’t want a man that can protect her, of course we’re all strong women and we can fight our own battles. But just knowing that your man has your back isn’t that an amazing feeling?
And maybe it’s just because the bad guys are drop dead gorgous most of the time haha. Come on the eye needs something too doesn’t it? I don’t believe that I’m the only girl that falls for the bad boys, so if your reading this and you recognize yourself, don’t be shy and leave a comment. Tell me who is your favourite bad boy and why?
Well I have a long list of bad boys, but I’ve been reading the first book in the Black dagger brotherhood and if there is one bad boy in that book it’s Zsadist. Although I don’t know much about him yet because I haven’t read his book. He already has a special place in my heart, and I can’t wait to read his story!
So that’s it for this ramdom saturday! Have a great weekend everyone.
