@))(-Which translates to 2009

It is the new year and has been so for the last hour and a half. I found a funny new video it is called Gold Pants Lullaby.

Go check it out it will make you laugh.

New Years!!!!

It's New Years Eve right now in the U.S.A. and I'm kinda bored. I started the second book in the succubus series, it is called Succubus on Top, I'm not that far into it yet but I am enjoying. ;-) Also starting this year I'm keeping a book journal, so I can remember everything that I read in 2009. And just for giggles I'm gonna put Succubus Blues on that list, so the series can all be together. Like I said I'm bored so now I'm going to go take a shower and then read a few hefty chapters of Succubus on Top.

Succubus Blues

I just finished the book entitled Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead. It was amazing. The story revolves around Miss. Georgina Kincaid a hot, sexy succubus, with friends in high (immortals) and low (mortals) places. Georgina steals the 'life force' from mortal males. By stealing their 'life force' she get "fuel" for lack of a better word. Normally she only has to feed every few weeks, if she keeps the shape-shifting to a minimal.

But now her favorite author Seth moves to her town and starts coming to her bookstore/cafe' to write, she finds herself being drawn to him. But hopes of having a relationship are dead because she would steal his 'life force'. Now that is hardly her only trouble, someone or something is killing immortals. So Georgina and her friends must find out who/what is doing it, even if the higher immortals don't want her too. And while all of this is happening a seemingly sweet, handsome, and kindhearted, man named Roman steps into Georgina's life. Now what is a succubus to do when two mortal males start falling in love with her, and she start falling back? She tries to avoid them, duh. But of course that never works. And with her job, dance lessons, and friends all in which she has commitments too, what is she going to do?

Another 'duh' she acts sexy, witty, and aggressive to get what she wants. This book has none stop mystery and action. It also will make you laugh and cheer for Georgina and most of her friends. Now with a book with Succubus in it name you will encounter sex. There are very few sex scenes in this books but they are rather descriptive, and this is not a children book. Georgina also has flashbacks and it is sometimes hard to tell when thing like this happen, but this does not diminish the story. She will shook you and you will love her for it. If you haven't picked up a copy of this book, then get it now and pick p the next two in the series while you're at it.

I'm Back

OMG where have I been? I've been busy and with the holidays...Well I'm sorry to report that i didn't finish Witchling :-( I just couldn't get into it, but I do still have it on my book case. I did get something however for Christmas, a book, It is called Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead. Now this one I'm loving and I'm reading it slow, to enjoy it more. I've heard great things about this book, and they are all true!
Okay, I've been doing some thinking and...Everyone has heard of the expression 'Don't judge a book by it's cover.' Well some people use this metaphorically, but for real books? Yes, that is what almost everyone does. What gets your attention, the cover of the book. If the cover was not important, then it would be a blank cover with the title written in bland letters. We do this every time we find a book on the shelf, by chance.
What does anyone thing about this? Would love to hear.

So, when I started this blog I didn't want to talk about personal life, but dammit I need to vent. School suck, Holidays are coming and I have no money for presents, Teachers are rude and I really think a teacher is out to get me. Shoot gotta go but I'm still reading Witchling Kinda likeing it. ;-)

Wednesday, December 10, 2008


Just wanted to drop in and say that I'm not going to read the Carrie books but instead have started Witchling by Yasmine Galenorn, I wouldn't normally read a book like this but a friend told me to read it, so I will. It seems rather erotic but what ever, if I don't like I won't read the rest in the series. Gotta love America, because it is a free country, well most of the time. (don't get me started on politics ;-).)

Here is the back cover summery

We're the D'Artigo Sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we're savvy--and sexy--operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But our mixed-blood heritage short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah shapeshifts into a tabby cat whenever she's stressed. Menolly's a vampire who's still trying to get the hang of being undead. And me? I'm Camille--a wicked-good witch. Except my magic is as unpredictable as the weather, which my enemies are about to find out the hard way...


"At the Wayfarer Inn, a portal to Otherworld and the local hangout for humans and beasties alike, our fellow operative Jocko's been murdered. Every clue points to Shadow Wing, the soul-munching, bad-ass leader of the Subterranean Realms. He's made it clear that he aims to raze humankind to the ground, turning both Earth and Otherworld into his private playground. Our assignment: keep Shadow Wing and his minions from creeping into Earth via the Wayfarer. The demons figure they're in like Flynn. After all, with only my 'bumbling' sisters and me standing in the way, how can they miss? But we've got a secret for them: faulty wiring or not, nobody kicks ass like the D'Artigo girls."

New Tales!

This is a really well written book of short stories and most of them have lessons. And a few are rather funny. I need more, I don't know what to do, I need something but I can't pick a book to read next. Maybe I'll read the Carrie Vaughn books.

Tales of Beedle the Bard

I just picked up the new book by J.K. Rowling. It will be a quick read and I will love it just as much as the Harry Potter series. I also found out how Sir Nicholas, (Nearly Headless-Nick) died, he was executed? If it was I the Harry books then I missed it. This is stated in the over view by Dumbledore at the end of each chapter. I got the standard edition but I still love and it's in hardback. I only have one complaint; there isn't enough stories in this book!!!

New Review

I finished Magic to the Bone yesterday, and liked it, It was not my favorite but there is real potential in the series. Why do I think this? Well there are a lot of new sayings and words that I had a bit of trouble understanding at first and I think Devon should have expanded on it a bit. Also the writing, Devon is talented no doubt about it, but Allie uses words such as 'so'. And she uses it in a way that I imagine a teenager using it.

To do a real review I would want to be truthful, but I don't want to book/author bash. But I really did enjoy it for the most part and I do want to read more. It just didn't... I don't know... some books captivate me and some don't, this one didn't and I was really into it the first half of the book, but after that I lost it.

The whole thing with Allie father and (spoiler) then he dies. who killed him? Was it Zayvion, the man that was hired by Allies father to fallow her, and then he quit the same day Daddy dies? Is it Mama the mother of the child that Allies father supposedly Offloaded magic onto, or maybe another one of her sons? Or the person that I suspected at first, Allie she sometimes has memory lapses and she was clearly pissed, so did she do? NO Allie didn't do it but that would be interesting. There were a lot of suspects, many of which we might not even know. Then this Hound named Bonnie is out to get her too. There was a lot of things gong one and rather hard for me to wrap my mind around.
All in all, **** stars and a lot of hope for the second one in the series and that is all I can say.

And to the comment. I see where your coming from, especially in the beginning when Allie goes to she her father and she thinks that he lied, even though they used a blood to blood spell that supposed to stop lies. Um...and she does it a little through the story, but not so much that it is annoying. And in that chapter she was really pissed. But I understand what you mean. ;-)

Day is Getting Brighter

The day is getting brighter, I'm almost done with Magic to the Bone, (I had to take I little break to check out everything online and guess what I found...On Devon Monks blog we find out two amazing things.

1) The title of her third book will be; Magic in the Shadows.
2) The cover art for her second book Magic in the Blood.

And the cover blurb is still held by Rachel Vincent! This cover seems a lot better then the first one. I enjoy the contrast between the red and grey/blue background. And the bloody knife is to die for ;-).

Okay if I find anymore good news it'll be here, but for now I'm going back to reading.

P.S. You can now per-order this book here: click


Today I'm disappointed, I fell into a deep sleep last night after only 50 more pages read. And today at school I was totally swamped and didn't get anything read while I was there. So the book is not done but it is the weekend starting today and I can't wait to jump head first into next chapter. So 3...2...1, I'm off.

Devon Monk

I bought this little pretty a few weeks ago and finally picked it up for reading today. I started it during lunch break at school today and was at page 100 by the time lunch got out. I am about half way through now and the cover quotes are right on the money, it is addictive and I do want more, more, more. Two of my favorite authors gave mini reviews for this book; Patricia Briggs and Rachel Vincent and so far they are true.

The plot so far is original and really compelling. I love Allie and her friends. I hope to finish this by morning but I need at least six hours of sleep or I'm screwed ;-). Wish me luck and if you haven't picked a up a copy of this yet do it, do it now! And since this book is published and on the shelves, I can give a review with spoilers!

P.S. Check out her blog and website. - website - blog

Starting a New

Hi, this is a new blog, I have never had a blog, but wanted a way to express my feeling about books and to review them. I belong to the Rachel Vincent Proboards group and Was recently the winner of one of her ARCs, Pride.
The two pictures on the side are scaned pics of the front of pride and the little note Rachel left in side. :-)

Here is the back blurb from Pride


I'm on trial for my life. Falsely accused of infecting my human ex-boyfriend--and killing him to cover up the crime. Infecting a human is one of three capital offenses recognized by the Pride--along with murder and disclosure of our existence to a human.

I'm two for three. A goner.

Now we've discovered a rogue stray terrorizing the mountainside, hunting a wild teenage tabbycat. It's up to us to find and stop him before a human discovers us. With my lover Marc's help, I think I can protect the vulnerable girl from both the ambitious rogue and the scheming of the territorial council.

If I survive my own trial...

I started this one and finished in less than two days, It was amazingly brilliant, and written exquisitely. The drama from Rogue, (second in the series,) is coming back to haunt Faythe. After killing the werecat she sired in self defense, she has been tried for turning a human into a werecat and for killing him to cover it up. At least that is what the charge against her is. The trial and young tabbycat are not the only things that are bothering her. There are many other beasties that live in the woods and it's only a matter of time before they come out to play. We will dive farther into the concepts of the DNA of a werecat and in the intricate workings of the werecat laws. Faythe also finds herself against a a few grumpy old werecats and a few feisty and lying young werecats. This just might be the 'trial of her life' but it will most definitely be the adventure of her life.

This is the best in the series and rather morbid at times but deserves all the praise it gets.
