My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Exceptional. Real. Even better than the first. Syn has tied with Bones as my favorite novel anti-hero. Pick it up and devour it. You will laugh, cry, and love it!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, what can I that hasn't already been said about this book? This book enthralled me to the point that I almost missed my company holiday party.

Although the first half of the book with Jack-less, it didn't matter. Pete is strong, and carried the first half of this book very well. I really appreciated the show of emotion from her regarding her loss of Jack. She hated him, missed him, and cried for him...the way a woman mourns the death of her lover. Her pain radiated from the pages, and although it was heartbreaking, her drive to continue with her life was astonishing.

Jackie is the bad ex-boyfriend that the new boyfriend has to worry about, even after death. His return to the book made me so incredibly happy, that no matter how much crap comes out of his mouth, the way he loves Pete was crystal clear.

Jack and Pete are no walk in the park. Their story isn't this epic story that will go down in history as the most romantic and mesmerizing. What they have is real...raw...dark....but it's love. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Our newest family member

The new love of my life - Jacob "Jake".

I cannot finish reading this book.

It's so annoying. I like the book, it's actually pretty darn good - but life keeps getting in the way. Darn it!

Born of Night (The League, #1) Born of Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I did not expect this book to turn out the way it did. It was very good, and such a wonderful love story. I'm definitely going to pick up Born of Fire.

It was aiiight. My daughter liked it. It was entertaining, much like reading a comic book, which I guess was the point

WOW...I love Sonny Flannery.

Darklight (Wondrous Strange, #2) Darklight by Lesley Livingston

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Didn't like this as much as the first one. It was so somber, the only highlights of it was Mabh and the few exchanges between Sonny and Fennrys. Anyway, I'll be waiting for the third and final of the Trilogy as anxiously as everyone else. I hope this one has a happy ending...

Want to Pre-order New Moon? I've done your research!

Ok, so I've done the research, and depending on what you want to get out of the New Moon DVD, or how much money you're willing to spend, here's my breakdown featuring what each store has to offer. Note, these stores are NOT carrying the same movie across town, so if you want different things, I suggest you go shopping that day and plan your trip, March 20 is around the corner.

Walmart: Includes 7 Minutes of Eclipse - $29.96

Target: Includes Deleted Scenes - $29.99

Borders: Includes exclusive medallion necklace on a silver chain—gold side features wolf-pack tattoo design, silver side shows the Cullen crest - PLUS previously unreleased EXTENDED SCENES. - $29.99

Barnes and Noble: 6-part behind-the-scenes documentary; band-rehearsal footage with Muse; music videos from Death Cab for Cutie, Anya Marina, and Mute Math. - $25.19 (LAME, they have this movie as "Horror" - the most horrific thing about it is Jasper's hair)

Best Buy: A free cell phone skin....Lamest. $20.49

So, if you spend a good $140.00 bucks, you can get 7 Minutes of Eclipse, deleted scenes, extended scenes, a necklace, a documentary, music videos, and a free cell phone skin....oh, and don't forget, 5 copies of New Moon.

Tempest Rising (Jane True, #1) Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The best way to sum up this book is the following:
Sexy, funny, wild, exciting, daring, and so real in the way we women think sometimes and fight with our inner demons.

Sookie Stackhouse has found her match! The sequel to this book is on my #2 of most wanted sequels EVER. I cannot wait!

First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World, #1) First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book took me by surprise. I'm very much Team Cat & Bones, so to read something from their world that wasn't centered around them felt almost as if I was cheating on them.
Surprise, surprise! Spade/Denise are just as wonderful as Cat/Bones in their own unique way.

I throughly enjoyed the character development for these two. In the Night Huntress series, they are portrayed very true to character (based on this book) Spade the brooder, and Denise the widow. However, we got to see their true colors, their motivations, their vices, and most of all, the power they have eventually developed over each other.

One thing I liked was that you do not have to read the Night Huntress series to pick-up this book and love it.

Jeaniene Frost. What a woman. Your women are as sassy as some of us wish we could be, and your men are as delectable as they come. Keep it up, cannot wait for the Mencheres spin-off, which I'm sure will keep me up at night devouring it the way I devoured this book.
