Published 28/02/2012 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:              Beyond twilight ( I’ve read this book in dutch )
Author:          Charlaine Harris, Maggie Shayne and Gena Showalter
Pages:            382
Catagory:      Paranormal Romance

The story:

No summary for this book

The view of a book addict:

I wanted to read this book really bad! Three great authors in one book, and I wasn’t dissapointed. I loved all three of the stories, I haven’t read the lord of the underworld series and my friend told me that the story in this book was actually the beginning of the series so I wanted to read this book before I started that series.
I already love the Sookie stackhouse series so reading a story set in the same world was really cool! I loved the story and the characters.
I haven’t read a book by maggy shayne yet but after reading this story I really want to read more from her.

The verdict of a book addict:

A great book, I loved every story and I can’t wait to read more from all the authors!

Review: Tempest Legacy by Nicole Peeler

Published 25/02/2012 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:             Tempest Legacy
Author:          Nicole Peeler
Pages:           341
Catagory:      Urban Fantasy

The story:

After a peaceful hiatus at home in Rockabill, Jane True thinks that her worst problem is that she still throws like a girl – at least while throwing fireballs. Her peace of mind ends, however, when Anyan arrives one night with terrible news . . . news that will rock Jane’s world to its very core. 

After demanding to help investigate a series of gruesome attacks on females — supernatural, halfling, and human — Jane quickly finds herself forced to confront her darkest nightmares as well as her deepest desires. 

And she’s not sure which she finds more frightening (taken from goodreads )

The view of a book addict:

At first I had a little trouble getting into this book, because it was such a long time ago I read the second book. So at first I was afraid that I wouldn’t like this book. But I’m happy to tell you that this wasn’t the case. Because after I got into the story I loved every word and every chapter.
I love all the creatures in this series, although you know some of them, others are new. That makes this series interesting and althoug you know some of the creatures they still surprise you. The story was great from the moment I got the hang of the storyline again I just couldn’t put this book away.

The verdict of a book addict:

Although I had a little trouble getting into this story I loved it! And I can’t wait to read what’s going to happen next.

Review: Fallen in love by Lauren Kate

Published 17/02/2012 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Fallen in love
Author:           Lauren Kate
Pages:             201
Catagory:        Angels

The story:

What makes your heart race a little faster? Just in time for Valentine’s Day, it’s FALLEN IN LOVE, four wholly original new stories collected in a new novel set in the Middle Ages by Lauren Kate. FALLEN IN LOVE gives fans the much-talked about but never-revealed stories of FALLEN characters as they intertwine with the epic love story of Luce and Daniel. The stories include: Love Where You Least Expect It: The Valentine of Shelby and Miles , Love Lessons: The Valentine of Roland; Burning Love: The Valentine of Arriane; and Endless Love: The Valentine of Daniel and Lucinda. (taken from goodreads )

The view of a book addict:

When I read there was going to be a book about the love life of the other angels from the Fallen series I just had to read it. Although I loved the stories I was a little dissapointed that in every story they talked about Daniel and Luce. We already know they had a lot of past lifes, if you ask me we could have done without it in the stories.
The stories were fun to read because you get a glimpse in the life of the others, of course there was a story about Luce and Daniel and I have to admit that I read through that story a lot faster than the other ones.

The verdict of a book addict:

Although I really loved the stories about the other angels they would even be more fun if they didn’t include Daniel and Luce everytime

Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Published 15/02/2012 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               The Hunger Games
Author:           Suzanne Collins
Pages:             454
Catagory:        Distopian, Young adult

The story:

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. 

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love. (taken from goodreads )

The view of a book addict:

When I read this book for the first time it was in dutch, so a little while ago I decided to get the books in English and start reading them again. And I have to say the second time you read the first book is just as amazing as the first time.
Although you know what’s going to happen you can’t help but feel like it’s the first time you’re reading it. I was still on the edge of my seat, I still hated the Capitol and I still hoped Katniss would win the games. I can only say that Suzanne Collins wrote an amazing book and series and I hope she’s going to write many more books like this.

The verdict of a book addict:

If a book can make you feel like you’re reading it for the first time although you’re reading it for the second time than it’s a really good book!

Meme: Memorable Monday

Published 13/02/2012 by supernaturalreadingaddict

So this is my first time participating in this new meme. I saw it last week but just couldn’t find the right quote. But this week I have the perfect one. The Memorable Monday meme is hosted by Escape In A Book . Check out their blog as well!
The book I want to share a quote from is The hunger games by Suzanne Collins. I’m reading this book for the second time, because I bought the whole series in Englis recently. I just love this book, it makes me laugh, cry and keeps me on the edge of my seat. So here is my quote:

“I volunteer!” I gasp. “I volunteer as tribute!” 

It’s a short quote but I just love it, it jus sets the tone for the rest of the book. I remember reading it for the first time and I had shivers down my spine just because she just sacrifices herself for her little sister. I hope you enjoyed my Memorable Monday!
