Random Saturday #5 A little inactive

Published 30/07/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
Hello Everyone, 
I just wanted to let you know that I’m little inactive on my blog at the moment. I’m not going to stop bookblogging but at the moment my personal life is very busy. I just moved and I work at an after school daycare but because there is no school at the moment I’m working full days at the moment so I have less time to read. So now you know why it’s so quite on my blog, if you’re an author and you want me to read and review your book for you, please read my review policy first. 
In three weeks school will start again and I will have more time to blog and read again! Until then it will stay a little quiet on my blog.

Goodreads summary:

The It Girl meets The Exorcist in this chilling, haunted boarding school tale

New-girl Lindsay discovers all is not right at the prestigious Marlwood Academy for Girls. Ethereal, popular Mandy and her clique are plotting something dangerous. Lindsay overhears them performing strange rituals, and sees their eyes turn black. It doesn’t help that the school itself is totally eerie, with ancient, dilapidated buildings tucked into the Northern California woods, a thick white fog swirling through campus. There are hidden passageways, odd reflections in the windows at night, and scariest of all is the vast lake rumored to have captured the ghost of a girl who drowned many years ago.

What Lindsay doesn’t yet realize is that Mandy and her cohorts are becoming possessed by spirits who have haunted the school for two hundred years. Spirits who want someone dead…

And that someone is Lindsay

Why do I want to read this book?
 Again I found this book on Goodreads and the summary just spoke to me. I really believe this is just my kind of book.

Clarissa Lee Moon

Catagory:

The story:


The first trilogy of Celeste Nites(Claiming Celeste, Hunting Celeste, Sharing Celeste)

Jacques is hypnotized by Celeste and makes plans for her seduction. Little did he know that it would be he who would be seduced. Seduced by her love, seduced by her body and inevitably seduced by her vampiric charms. But he is not the only one to fall for her seduction; there is another with a more eternal kiss of death on his mind. 
Hunting Celeste: 
Jacques and Armand track Celeste to New Jersey in a seedy bar on the Southside. Both brothers seduce her, trying to tempt her into their protection. Celeste again leaves unable to share her dark secret with these men though they prove to be steadily wearing her resist down with their sweet words and soft touches. Sharing Celeste: 
Jacques let’s Armand have the lead in bringing back their elusive vixen. But Celeste is proving to be a very hard negotiator in bed and out of it.

The view of a book addict:


This book is actually three books in one and I loved them all! They had adventure and steamy bed scenes. I love both things in a book., so it didn’t take me long to finish this book. I really liked the writing style of this author so I didn’t have any problem getting into the story. And I’m wondering if there is more in store for Celeste after reading this book.

The verdict of a book addict:


A great Paranormal romance book, you can’t help but love the story and it’s characters.

Review: Gypsy Knights by Two Brothers Metz

Published 20/07/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               
Gypsy Knights
Author:          
Two Brothers Metz
Pages:           
  213
Catagory:     
Fantasy / Adventure

The story:

Fourteen-year-old Durriken Brishen has lost his parents, his grandfather, and though he doesn’t know it, his Gypsy culture’s dangerous gift.

Taken in and raised on the rails by the first woman to pilot a freight train, Durriken has one remaining connection to his Romani roots: a small wooden box that hangs from the hammer loop of his overalls.

The last gift he received from his grandfather, the box contains the world’s first chess set. But a piece is missing: the Red Queen. According to Durriken’s family lore, the complete set awakens the power of Tărie, a mercurial gift that confers unique abilities on each new Master.

When a suspicious fire erupts in the Chicago rail yard, Durriken’s escape produces an uneasy alliance, though not without its silver lining. Dilia is a few inches taller, several degrees cleverer, and oh yes – very pretty. While Durriken is uneasy allying with a girl whose parents were convicted of sedition, there’s no doubt she is a powerful partner. And while it’s not immediately clear to either, her own Guatemalan culture and family history are deeply entwined with the ancient Romani mystery.

Jumping box cars, escaping riverboats, deciphering clues, crossing swords with the brilliant madman Radu Pinch – with great American cities as its backdrop – Gypsy Knights is the page-turning saga of Durriken Brishen and his quest to rediscover his past

The view of a book addict:


I have to say that I had troubles getting into this book,. But the story was really well written, so that kept me reading the book and I’m glad I did. The only thing about the book that was a bit difficult for me was the parts about chess, because I can’t play chess. But don’t let yourself stop you from reading this book just because you don’t know the rules of chess because the main characters experience wonderful adventures.
You follow a couple of characters throughout this story but that never gets confusing. The storyline of the characters is interesting and it keeps you comming back to the book to find out what’s happening next to them.

The verdict of a book addict:

If you like a well written fantasy / Adventure novel than this is your book!

Stunned, I stood there on the dance floor watching the handsome stranger move away from me. He was tall and slender, with an athletic build. His steps were strong, as he left the floor and he looked delicous, even moving away with a firm backside any woman would pant for.

Review: Coexist ( Keegan’s chronicles ) by Julia Crane

Published 14/07/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Coexist
Author:           Julia Crane
Pages:             137
Catagory:        Fairies

The story:


Sixteen-year-old Keegan is struggling to keep her huge secret from her friends–she’s an elf, descended from a long line of elves that live in secrecy alongside humans. 

In elfin society, mates are predetermined but not allowed to meet until they are eighteen. Against tradition, Keegan’s brother Thaddeus told her Rourk’s name because his visions warned him she’d need Rourk’s protection, especially since Keegan will play a key role in the coming war between the dark and light elves.

Rourk finds himself drawn to Keegan’s side every time she thinks his name. He wants to talk to her but remains in the shadows, silently guarding her every time she mentally beckons him. A twist of fate thrusts the two of them together when Rourk is forced to step up his protection and make his presence known.

An ancient prophecy deeply entwines Keegan’s family and the future of their society. Somehow they must find a way to thwart fate and win the battle…without losing Keegan. With war brewing, and dark forces aligning, will Keegan and Rourk ever have the life together that they both desire

The view of a book addict:


I loved the writing style in this book, it was very descriptive. You can just see how the world the writer created looks by reading this book. I love it when a book takes the time to tell you how a world and the characters you meet look.
It was a really great story, with a lot of sweet parts but also a great battle. I was sad at the end but I can’t wait to read what’s going to happen next.

The verdict of a book addict:


A great book about fairies and other magical creatures. I loved the story and couldn’t put it down!
