Teaser Tuesday #18

Published 31/05/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
It’s Tuesday again so time for another Teaser Tuesday hosted by Should Be Reading! Here is how it works:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
And here is my Teaser for this week: 

Don sat on the bed, an oxygen mask lying on the table next to him. From the faint lines around his  face, he’d had it on before we came in. I would’ve told him to keep using it, but of course, that logic would only fall on deaf ears. I shut the door behind the six of us and then proceeded to outline the situation with the ghouls as we knew it.

Why do I want to read this book?
I loved the first book in this series, so I wanted to order the second book right away. But I found out that I’ll have to wait for it because it isn’t released yet.

Random Saturday #2

Published 28/05/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
On this second Random Saturday I want to tell you a bit more about  how I shop for my books. As a dutch girl it isn’t as easy as you would think, or maybe it is. 
There are only a couple of shops in the Netherlands that sell english books and because I’m really impatient and don’t want to wait for a book to be translated I read most of my books in English. If I am really going bookshopping I’m going to Amsterdam. They have the American Bookstore and a Waterstones. Most of the time I go there with my bookloving friend and we bring a big bag with us haha. We start out just pulling books from the shelves that speak to us and then reading the backcovers. Sometimes I find a book I think she would love and sometimes she finds a book for me. After we’ve read the backcovers of all the books we make a pile with the books we would like to buy. Than depending on our budget we buy our books. 
But most of the time I buy my books online at Amazon.co.uk and sometimes bol.com ( a dutch version of Amazon ). I just browse through my wishlist and add the books I want to my basket. Most of the time you can find recommendations of other books you might like. So I’ll check them out and add them to my basket if I like them. And then the waiting begins, I always hate waiting for my books. 
And that’s how a dutch girl buys her english books!

Review: The demon trappers: Forsaken by Jana Oliver

Title:              
The demon trappers: Forsaken

Catagory:       
Demons

The story:


Riley has always wanted to be a Demon Trapper like her father, and she’s already following in his footsteps as one of the best. But it’s tough being the only girl in an all-guy world, especially when three of those guys start making her life more complicated: Simon, the angelic apprentice who has heaven on his side; Beck, the tough trapper who thinks he’s God’s gift, and Ori, the strikingly sexy stranger who keeps turning up to save her ass. One thing’s for sure – if she doesn’t keep her wits about her there’ll be hell to pay..

The view of a book addict:


I really wanted to read this book, because I haven’t read many demon books before. Most of the books I read have either werewolfs, zombies or vampires in them. I decided to buy this book after I read the summary and I don’t regret it. The story is amazing! You really get the chance to get to know the main character and all the characters around her in this book.
And you get a look in a future filled with demons, I can only hope that will never happen! I was on the edge of my seat most of te time and the lower class demons made me laugh once or twice. I loved the main character, I would love to be her for just one day because she just kicks butt.

The verdict of a book addict:


A great book, with scary demons and a great heroine. I can’t wait for the next book!

Follow Friday & blog hop #19

Published 27/05/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
It’s friday again so time to partictpate in some blog hopping fun! First of all I’m going to start with the Follow friday hosted by Parajunkee’s View.
The question this week is:

Q. How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?


That really depends on the week, if I’m busy with work I’ll read two books. But sometimes I read four or five books a week. The formats are mostly just paperbacks or e-books.












And of course we can’t forget the Blog Hop, the Blog Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books.
The question this week is:

 “What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked?  Which have you disliked?”

I really liked the harry potter movies, I think they are great. I didn’t like the adaption of Eragon it was way to short and they cut out a lot of things.

So  that’s it for this week have a great weekend everyone!

18 & over tag along #13

Published 27/05/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
As always I keep the 18 & over tag along seperate from the other hops. It just feels better this way, to give it it’s own post. The 18 & over tag along is hosted by Bitten by paranormal romance
The question this week is:

Please tell us a little about yourself and what you read?



I’m a dutch girl and I have no brothers or sisters. I read a lot mostly paranormal romance, horror and fantasy. But I do enjoy a good historical book or a Jane Austen novel. I have a boyfriend, we have just bought a house so we are waiting to get the key and start moving.  I love playing the Sims I’m addicted to this game. And my guilty pleasure is Disney! I love everything Disney, from the movies to the Theme parks. Well that’s it I guess.
Have a great weekend!!

Theme Thursday #7

Published 26/05/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
Theme Thursdays



Theme Thursday is hosted by Reading Between Pages First here are the rules:


  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
    Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”
This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.
The Theme this week is: Conversation:

“Don’t tell harper I did this. He’ll be pissed.”  
Pissed because you were nice to me? that sucks. “Why is he such an idiot?”
“Don’t know.” He took the empty container and put it in the car. “You best get in there before he wakes up.”
As he turned away, she touched his arm. “Thanks, Simon.”
“Watch yourself, OK?” He said, his brow forrowed in worry.
“You too.”
