Title:                   Faefever

The story:

The New York Times bestselling author of Darkfever and Bloodfeverreturns to Dublin’s Fae-infested shores in a bold, sensual new novel. Hurtling us into a realm of seduction and shadows, Karen Marie Moning tells the enthralling tale of a woman who explores the limits of her mysterious powers as she enters a world of ancient sorcery—and confronts an enemy more insidious than she could ever have imagined. 

He calls me his Queen of the Night. I’d die for him. I’d kill for him, too.When MacKayla Lane receives a torn page from her dead sister’s journal, she is stunned by Alina’s desperate words. And now MacKayla knows that her sister’s killer is close. But evil is closer. And suddenly the sidhe-seer is on the hunt: For answers. For revenge. And for an ancient book of dark magic so evil, it corrupts anyone who touches it.

Mac’s quest for the Sinsar Dubh takes her into the mean, shape-shifting streets of Dublin, with a suspicious cop on her tail. Forced into a dangerous triangle of alliance with V’lane, an insatiable Fae prince of lethally erotic tastes, and Jericho Barrons, a man of primal desires and untold secrets, Mac is soon locked in a battle for her body, mind, and soul.

As All Hallows’ Eve approaches and the city descends into chaos, as a shocking truth about the Dark Book is uncovered, not even Mac can prevent a deadly race of immortals from shattering the walls between worlds—with devastating consequences.…

The view of a book addict:

If I was in love with th first two books in this series I’m madly in love with this one. Every ending of every chapter made me want to read the next and the next and the next. It was the work of a death by text fae I swear!

I was already warned by other reviews that I would want to read the next book right after finishing this one. They were right, the next book is already waiting for me to be read and devoured.

The tension was very high in this book, it started with the first chapter and the tension didn’t end after reading the last chapter. There wasn’t one boring chapter in this book if you ask me. That’s the power of this book, you really want to read and read and read.

The verdict of a book addict:

Wow this is a great book with one hell of an ending! I can’t wait to read what’s going to happen next!

The view of a book addict:

I loved the first book in the series and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the second book. It didn’t dissapoint me that’s for sure. What I really love about this book is that it just picks up right where you are left in the first one. So you don’t have the feeling that you’re missing something.

I really like Mac she’s the kind of girl I would like to meet and to be honest she has my dream job. She runs a bookstore, okay it’s not her own store of course but I would love to have her job. That’s all I love to have from her life haha, I’m glad I’m not a Sidhe seer.

But well then there is Barrons, I don’t know what he’s hiding but I’m dying to find out what he is and what his motives are. He’s not a dreamy kind of guy but I would love to meet him, just to get it out of my system.

So back to the book, I really liked it, just like the first book everytime I finished a chapter I had to read the next one because the ending of the previous one was such a cliffhanger.

The verdict of a book addict:

A great second book in a great series, I can’t wait to read what’s going to happen next!

Write a letter to your favorite character. Rant, rave or gush…just pretend like they are real and you just want to let them know a “few things”. – Activity courtesy of author, Kelly Walker

Dear Raven,

Thank you for being there when I needed a friend that understood me. As a teen in love with vampires and everything else supernatural you really helped me be myself and not giving a damn about what others thought of me. I was a little bit jealous of you when you met Alexander but that was just for a split second. Because you two belong together in that wonderful mansion.  After I grew up I still came back to you, just because you’re such an awesome girl! Thank you for making my life a little bit mor fun and I’ll miss your adventures with Alexander.

xoxo Annabel

Review: Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Published 12/02/2013 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:                   Warm Bodies
Author:              Isaac Marion
Pages:                 340
category:           Zombies

The story:

A zombie who yearns for a better life ends up falling in love—with a human—in this astonishingly original debut novel.

R is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He doesn’t enjoy killing people; he enjoys riding escalators and listening to Frank Sinatra. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.

Not just another zombie novel, Warm Bodies is funny, scary, and deeply moving

( Taken from Goodreads )

The view of a book addict:

This book was on my TBR pile for almost a year, every time I wanted to pick it up another book came between me and this one. But with the knowledge that in April this movie is going to hit the theatres in the Netherlands I decided now was the time to read it. And now I’ve read it I just don’t know why I waited so long because this is a wonderful book.

Okay the idea of a zombie romance is a little strange. Because when I think about zombies, I think about blood, brains and a lot of gore. Of course there is some of that in this book but the main story is about a zombie that just doesn’t want to be a zombie anymore. He is the first one that starts to feel something else besides the urge to eat people.

While you’re reading this book you can’t help but feel sympathy and even love for the zombie R. Julie is a girl I would love to meet, she isn’t the type to cry and beg for her life, she fights for it. Before I started reading this book I thought zombies were just brainless eating machines, after reading this book I’m not so sure anymore.

The verdict of a book addict:

A great zombie book, you just have to read it and fall in love with it. I can’t wait to see the movie version of this one.

Review: Alice in zombieland by Gena Showalter

Published 06/02/2013 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:           Alice in Zombieland
Author:     Gena Showalter
Pages:         404
category:   Zombies

The story:

She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real….

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….

I wish I could go back and do a thousand things differently.
I’d tell my sister no.
I’d never beg my mother to talk to my dad.
I’d zip my lips and swallow those hateful words.
Or, barring all of that, I’d hug my sister, my mom and my dad one last time.
I’d tell them I love them.
I wish… Yeah, I wish.

The view of a book addict:

I heard a lot of things about this book, good things and bad things. My intention when I read a book is to form my own opinion and I won’t let another review of opinion decide for me if I’m going to like a book. And that’s how I started reading this one without any judgement, and to be honest? I love every page of it! If you don’t like the book that’s okay but I think it’s one of the most original zombie books I’ve read.

Okay maybe the zombies aren’t what I expected but why do they always have to be the classic ones. In the remake of Dawn of the Dead the zombies run! So they changed from shambling creatures to creatures without a speed limit. The moment you embrace the zombies are different from any other zombie you ever read about you’ll find a great story. One I handn’t read before and one I loved and made me think just one more chapter every time I picked it up.

I love Gena Showalters writing style, it moves along, she makes you get to know the characters and be honest she makes you love the bad boys. ( okay maybe the weren’t all bad in this book ).  I loved Alice she was a strong woman, she didn’t just curl up and ready to die, she fought to survive. Another person I loved from the first sentence was Kat, her comments and just her attitude made me smile every time. And then there is Cole….. what to say about him? He’s the bad boy you can’t bring home to meet your mom, but when you do he’s polite, he’ll even hold the door for you and your mom.

The verdict of a book addict:

If you ask me this is a great book that introduces you to a different zombieworld. One that I fell in love with and want to read more about!
