What’s your blogging new years resolution?

Published 29/12/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

So it’s almost the end of the year and a new year is just around the corner. I haven’t been very active the last few months but my new years resolution is to blog more!
At the beginning of the year I had a blog post almost every day, but with the moving and getting pregnant it just slipped away and to be honest I hate the fact that I let it slip up this way.
So I’m starting over again, In the first weekend of 2012 I’m going to work on this blog and come up with new weekly features and I’ll start joining some meme’s again.

So what’s your blogging new years resolution

The story:


Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days. 

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color. 

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war– and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now. 

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior. 

In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting asThe Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel—with a paranormal twist—that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its seque

The view of a book addict:


Let me start by saying that I love the writing style of this book, it’s just amazing. You have to get used to it the first couple of pages but once you are it’s beautiful. I was really looking forward to reading this book because I believed it would be an amazing book. And it was, it’s a great story that grips you and just spits you out at the end of the book.
After reading the last page you can’t help but wonder what’s going to happen in the next book, I loved the characters, all of them even the bad ones. You get a little glimpse of all of them in this book and of course you get the chance to get to know the main characters of the book.

The verdict of a book addict:


Great story, I loved the characters, the way the words were used and how the ending keeps you on the edge of your seat for more!

Evie’s always thought of herself as normal. Sure her best friend is a mermaid, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shapeshifter and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours, but still. Normal. 

Only now paranormals are dying and Evie’s dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She begins to suspect there is a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths, and even worse, that she is at the center of a dark prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures

The view of a book addict:


This was a great book, I finished it so fast because I just couldn’t put it down. The story just takes you right into the world Kiersten created. You want to know everything about the world and everyone living in it.
Just like the main character you keep wondering what she is and what’s going to happen next. And of course you can’t help but fall for “Water boy”. The story is scary and fun at the same time and moves along in a fast pace.

The verdict of a book addict:


I loved this book and it’s characters, I can’t wait to read the next book. It’s a great story, set in a great world!

The view of a book addict:


I really liked this book, it’s a fast read! You just get into the story right away and the fact that the chapters are short makes you go through the book faster.
I really liked the story, although at one point you can predict what’s going to happen it’s still a good book to read. You still want to know what’s going to happen next. The characters are easily loved or hated depends on the role they play in the story.

A good first book in a series, I would recommend this book to anyone that loves stories about fallen angels and angels.

The view of a book addict:


I can’t help the fact that I’m in love with the brotherhood, they just had me from the first book. But this book was a little less exciting than the rest. I missed the action the other books had but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like the book.
What I like most about the books is that you get the chance to learn more about one of the brothers but still get the chance to see what’s happening with the other ones.


The verdict of a book addict:

Maybe not the best book in the series but it’s definitely a good one! I really want to know what’s going to happen next for the brothers.

Review John Winchester’s diary by Alex Irvine

John Winchester’s diary

Supernatural

The story:

Sam and Dean Winchester know all the secrets their father recorded in his journal. Now you can too.
On November 2, 1983, Sam and Dean Winchester lost their mother to a demonic supernatural force. In the wake of the tragedy, their father, John, set out to learn everything he could about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of America . . . and how to kill it. In his personal journal, he not only compiled folklore, legend, and superstition about all manner of otherworldly enemies but also recorded his experiences—hunting the creature that killed his wife even as he raised his two sons.
Part prequel, part resource guide, John Winchester’s Journal finally gives fans the ultimate companion book for Supernatural. It’s all here: the exorcism Sam and Dean used in “Phantom Traveler,” John’s notes on everything from shapeshifters to Samuel Colt, Dean’s first hunt, Sam’s peewee soccer team . . . and John’s single-minded pursuit of a growing and deadly evil.

The view of a book addict:


I’m a huge Supernatural fan so I just had to read this book. After putting it in my basket en taking it out again a couple of times I finally decided to buy the book. And I’m glad I bought it because it was a nice and light read for a change.
I really liked the concept of the book. Although it’s a bit messy it really captured me and I was curious about what I would find in this book.


The verdict of a book addict:

A great book if you’re a supernatural fan like me. You’ll probably won’t understand the story if you haven’t seen the show
