Teaser Tuesday!!

Dont know who started this, but have seen it everywhere for awhile now. I have decided to give it a try.
Book: Fins Are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs
"I force myself not to think about the last time I entered the royal ballroom on a wave of silent anticipation--Quince-related memories will only make me cry more at this point.
Instead, I focus on the crowd, on hundreds of merfolk dressed in their finest apparel, and on the ballroom..." Page 237
So far so good, book is interesting and good :)

Review: Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

I had heard so many things about this book so i had to read it. I agree with everyone when they say it was amazing. It is amazing! It has vampires, werewolves, fearies, shapeshifters and things you have never even heard of. The storyline is great! Its interesting and has the right twists to make a great book. The writing is good too, you cant help but love and support Evie (main character). There was one thing about it though, it may have just of been me and how i was thinking but i felt like Evie was always acting so childish, but that is just my opinion. Read it, then tell me what you think :). Overall, its a great book. Finished it in one day! READ IT! <3

Review: The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson

This is a sequel to 13 Little Blue Envelopes. But they both are fantastic!!! They are really interesting, exciting and fun!! Its about a girl who receives 13 letters from her aunt who has just passed away. Each letter has instructions to do something. The first letter sends her over seas, alone. Alone as in no phone no computer nothing! Each letter takes her on a great adventure that changes her life. At the end (spoiler) the last letter is stolen along with the rest of her stuff, before she gets a chance to open it. This book is the adventure of that letter.
Great books! LOVE them!!

Review: Bite Club by Rachel Caine

Bite Club is like the 10th book in the Morganville Vampires series. I enjoyed the whole series. They were exciting and keep you on your toes. They are about a girl who is super smart so she goes to college early. She ends up going to a college in Morganville, which is full of vampires. They pretty much control everything. They have some weird memory wiper set up, so if someone leaves they forget all about the vampires. The only problem is that they never let people leave. Claire (the super smart girl) ends up having to work for a very very old vampire who is insane. But he is really smart too. He has a computer that is controlled by a brain. Anyways, Claire and her friends have ton of adventures and trouble always seems to find them. Its a good series so i suggest you read it if you have time. :)

p.s. im still new at the whole review thing so bare with me :)

Review: My Soul To Keep and My Soul To Steal by Rachel Vincent

I loved this whole series! Its a whole new kind of paranormal romance. There are no vampires, werewolves witches, etc. What there is is bean sidhes. They're kinda like banshees.  Most of here books have a spin on species to them, which i love. In these to books so much happens and relationships are put to the test and broken. And some even form, even though the main character doesn't notice it (it involves her). I recommend this series to anyone who is looking for a good read, there are five books so far. Rachel creates whole worlds in her books and add to our own.
Gosh, im so not good at reviews. I never know what to say but i'll get the hang of it sooner or later. hopefully :) I'm gonna stop here today because i have a bad headache and have had a rough day. But if anyone can help me get the hang out reviews i would be grateful. Any tips would be nice as well.

Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Might as well review all the books i read if im am going to have a book blog. So welcome to my first review...ever. Since it is my first i will just say a few words about the book. Amazing. Captivating. 100% awesome! Okay, those were my few words :). I just have to say that it really was a great book. Im very glad that it is becoming a movie. Even though most movies aren't nearly as good as the books. But more people will read the book because they will watch the movie and then everyone will see how fantastic it is. I love that it is from a girl's view. Because we need more girls like her in the real world. She can take care of herself and family. She is caring and tough all at the same time. She tells people what they need to hear. I love her :)
Keep an eye out for my next review! Which will most likely be on My Soul To Keep.
