My Review for "Atlantean"

Atlantean (Eternal Trilogy, #1)Atlantean by E.N. Watkins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book was one of my reads for the readathon and have to say that i had myself for having it on my shelf for 2 years before picking up to read it. Have ask for this book to read because of the amazing cover and then when i have received it my friend asked for it and then when i got it back i just had other books to read and kept pros-pone it. Give the book an over all a 10 stars (unfortunately goodreads doesn't allow more then 5). If you like Greek mythology, story about Atlantic lost city, angels , demons (or not demons ... read it you will find out) trust me this is the book for you.

First let me just beg E.N. Watkins please continue with this series I want to keep reading , is just amazing.

Amadeus Angel (he does not like to use his full name often) knows he is different but not how different or who he truly is until he goes to a new school where everything in his life changes. He starts understanding why his "parents" like to make him cry, and that he is not the only one there are so many more...atleanteans (but with cool powers, i want to be able to do so many things they do). Ow and have to add that his friends are also either angels , witches but they are how old...what and they traveled through time...OMG and what...his soulmate is the first angel . (need to say more?)

This is a fast passing book, and warning you will not be able to put it down , i stopped reading when it was done and it was 3 am and had to be up at 5 am for work ( it was worth the sacrifices loved it). Is beautiful written , the plot is just wow, and the book has the perfect amount of detail about each adventures or new information (like a new character, or how God created the universe from the most powerful book with the help of...read the book you will know).

My Review for "You Were Here"

You Were HereYou Were Here by Cori McCarthy

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I have received the book in exchange for my honest review, and before i give my review i want to let you guys know that this genre is the first time i read. Therefore my 3 stars is actually good because i did enjoy reading it and i did it in one day. Honestly i believe that some of the events could happen in real life or even have happened already.

The plot is mostly about the death of Jake's sister reliving all his crazy 'adventures' trying to stay alive while doing it. Jaycee (Jake's sister) is dealing with grief in a very different way then even the people that have watching him die, one of those people being her best friend Natalie (but she does not know that). When is the 'adversary' of her brother Jaycee, Natalie , Zack ,Mirk and Bishop go along to discover what Jake used to visit and why. Although Natalie denies it at first this adventures brings her and Jaycee (and more important herself) closer and back to be themselves. Of course every child deals with trauma in different ways but this girls have taking it to a new level by either burring everything inside and trying to be someone else like nothing happened (Natalie) or literally living Jake's life (Jaycee).

To my surprised this book captivated me into reading it without putting it down and enjoy along with the "gang" every adventure they had (although a little to extreme for me at some points). Although is a different genre and style of writing that i am used to read, i actually enjoyed this book very much and was pleased to see how fast i finished it.

My Review for "No One But You"

No One But YouNo One But You by Jillian Hart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Have to say that is been long since i have read a book in one standing or even in just few hours and even enjoy it (did not realized it was done). Have to give the book a 5 starts although i did not love it is just that what is said in the book is so often in real life that at some points it made me so angry.

This is a fictional story about a woman that has been abused but is trying to change her life and help all the other women that are going through the same thing. Mariah is been out of the abuse for years but she wants to give back to all the people that help her and make a better life for her and her son. Also trying to show everyone that women can get back up stronger then ever. However her past life has harden her heart and scared her to trust any man she came in contact with until a long lost friend that she had dated in high school. When she finds out his story and what he went through all the years they have been apart she realized how much he has suffered and changed. Everything changes when her son is in big danger and he is the first person to go to her sons side to help him and do anything he can to keep him calm until help arrives to take him to the hospital.

It is a very fast reading book and you will enjoy every chapter of it , in my opinion is perfect for a reading slam. Also i will stop her because if i will continue i will give to much away from this lovely and beautiful story.

My Review for "Instinct" book 6

Instinct (Chronicles of Nick, #6)Instinct by Sherrilyn Kenyon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Finally read this book, do not judge me but i am really afraid continuing from here and in this review i will let you know why. First let me tell you that i am so happy with this book is my favorite by far from the series. The cover is so cool (all covers from this series are amazing) and the plot is Amazing , 5 stars is not enough for this book but it is what good reads gives me to work with.

If you have not read book 5 do not read this REVIEW some spoilers might be in it.

Now lets start by (view spoiler) saying why is it so obvious to everyone else who will betray Nick but not to him....Unfortunately the events that have happened in the last few hours make him trust the most wrong demon he had helped before. (view spoiler) He has to face one of the biggest test to prove to everyone and himself if he is a human or the demon that will end everything. Nick will miss the help of all his friends (demon included) and Babba, now more then ever , but when it comes to save someone you care about you give even your life to for him/her.

The book is full of adventures but in this one more characters are added to be along Nick side or against him. Also we find out that one he think is his friend , is trying to get him killed or to become the demon that he is. However everything plays out just perfect in my opinion, because if you want you can even stop reading this series, that is why i love this book so much the ending people... do not try to read only the end you will not understand anything. </["br"]></["br"]></["br"]></["br"]></["br"]></["br"]>

My Review for "Illusion" book 5

Illusion (Chronicles of Nick, #5)Illusion by Sherrilyn Kenyon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Literally i could not stop laughing in the first few chapters, had tears in my eyes... poor , poor , poor Nick what a PROM day does he have (OMG). Have to say that the tittle of this book Illusion is well suited for what is happening to the poor kid. Nick has got himself into a lot of trouble but even where he is now he will people 'confidence' (although he very close to be send to a sanatorium by his mom).

I WILL TRY MY BEST TO REVIEW IT WITHOUT GIVING MUCH AWAY , SO YOU BEEN WARN.

How i said before the writer raises the bar so high in each book that you do not expect the next book to just blow your mind how amazing it is without making you love any less the previous one. In this book my heart was in my 'mouth' the whole time. SPOILER ALERT (view spoiler) WOW THAT WAS A HUGE SPOILER, AGAIN DON'T READ IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW
In this book it shows how smart and strong (mentally)Nick is even without any of his powers. Also who are his real friends and what are they capable to do for him (you will be surprise from who he will receive help). However when you think things will go ok Nick messes up big time, by saving the wrong possible creature (things will get very interesting the next book I can not wait). This book made me laugh, cry , fall inlove, hate and get inspired for how we can see some things in real life.

My Review for "Inferno" book 4

Inferno (Chronicles of Nick, #4)Inferno by Sherrilyn Kenyon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I have read all the books from this series (well the ones are out)and have to say i am thankful so far that all this books were out when i started reading them, because i could get them right away ...now i am dieing can not wait to read the 8th book...
Inferno is the 4th book from the series and is amazing honestly i think 5 starts is not enough (ignoring the fact that i had a heart attack reading the prologue). Have to say that the writer has outdone herself, with every book is raising the bar. All the credit for this book goes to Nick he is an amazing character, he takes 'bad news' very well.Like the time they tell him to be able to defeat the new enemy is with this power but you have to be very careful this is the power that can change you into the demon that we have all seen in the future, and you don't have enough time to learn it without us pushing your limit and snapping your 'guard'. Nick would say something like 'that's it?'(not remember the quote exactly). What i like the most about him in this book that finally he is cautious in who to trust, so he only trust the person send by his father to kill him (and yes he knows that very well).
How i said before i have not read the Dark Hunter series, but i love this one and honestly is not confusing how other people have said. The character Nick takes us thru some situations that i am sure we all have been in (good, embarrassing and sometimes bad)and is so entertaining and funny...Like the moment Nick goes to prom (with the wrong person) and things get interesting. However i bet that that we all want some of his power to use them on some 'creatures' we have stumble over the years.
I think i should stop writing because i already gave some important things away and don't want to ruin the reading...just going to say Babba is back (and lotsssss more ) so you know it will lots of adventure, funny moments. Read this book lots of secrets will be spilled and things will get a lot more clear for some characters.
Enjoy your reading :)

My Review for "Infamous" book 3

Infamous (Chronicles of Nick, #3)Infamous by Sherrilyn Kenyon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I have to stop picking up a series that never ends...because the suspense, the wait and everything else is killing me slowly. Honestly I first choose this series because of the covers, they are amazingly cool and interesting. OK enough about the whole series now i am going to tell you why i gave the book 5 stars ( although i wanted to kill the write because he needs to give Nick a break ... man)... well beside that of course i just love the color, this book is all about the content (i know you will say that all the books are like that), the way the written , with every word taking you in that world living every moment like you are apart of that, and when someone interrupts (little brother/sister) you want to 'kill' them.
Infamous is the 3 book from the series and have to tell you that poor Nick will barely get any break with his girlfriend, he is always attacked by everyone (especially his Dad) and trying to learn the powers without waking up the devil inside (literally).
At some point I start getting frustrated because i will make an idea about Nick's girlfriend (both actually ...yes he will have 2 but not by choice) and then something huge will happen and i will have a different idea about who she really is and what she is hiding. However what i love the most is that has lots of new adventure and it will not feel like is a bit to much even for fantasy (admitted it has happen in some books), and that he will find help in places and people you least expect.
Nick is to naive ...way to naive and golable by forgiving everyone and seeing good in creatures that will never have not even a drop of good only they are forced to help him because he saves them. Hopefully he will change in the next book and be more tough (but not destroying the world tough).
Hope this helps , i really enjoyed reading this book actually i am on book 7 now just didn't get around to write a review for it.

My Review for "Invincible" book 2

Invincible (Chronicles of Nick, #2)Invincible by Sherrilyn Kenyon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I knew i will get hooked on this series. Invincible is the 2nd book from the Chronicles of Nick series and i can tell you is so different then any other fantasy book you have read, i love it, the reason that i give only 4 stars is for the cover for some reasons don't like them much, although the boy on the cover is supposed to be Nick.

Nick is terrified about loosing control on his powers, and on top of that his new coach wants him to "get" stuff from students in school so he can keep leaving forever. Oh and that is not all he is going out with a cheerleader when in fact he can only think about Cody , if she could tell him her secrets (will that be better ?!!!).

The book just drove me crazy (in a good way) every time i think everything will come clear other secrets surface and drive me nuts. Full of adventure, mystery and danger at every corner. I have been waiting for a book like this, so different from all paranormal/ fantasy books I've read; love how each character evolves at it's own pace, and how is the authors 'transports' us from a dimension to another.

After reading the Morganville Vampires series (15 books) i thought i would never go for a series longer then 6-7 books, but this series has me captivated so much that i know for a fact i will read all 20 books (at my own pace but i will do it). Also i heard it might be another spin off of this series so it will probably get to 10 books, but if you know how sad you are when a book is done well i think this series is just amazing,

My Review for "Last Sacrifice" book 6

Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, #6)Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Noooooo why does it have to end... love this series so much. Love the ending of this book, finally an ending that i can feel good not cry over it. This is the perfect ending to a series , although i would like more about Rose and Dimitry.

Aww in this book everything starts to make sense , finally we get an answer to our prayers and some of the characters they get what they deserve. Rose in this book is fighting herself and what she thinks she feels for Dimitry until he shows her that he still loves her which confuses her even more. However this adventure that they both are on shows how well they work together and (view spoiler)... To clear Rose name Dimitry will do anything even go back along the side of the strigoi to get what he needs until they find a way to change another stigoi back. What i find very interesting is the 'people' they have to ally to so they can get their 'mission' to an end and stop this madness.

I thought i knew who is going to be guilty but that changed a few times through the book until the end when i was surprised (but i guess we had it coming). Lots of new characters are introduced to this book and even "population" that have thought are dead (but they are very strange even for this book). Last few chapters i laughed , cried and even "tried to get into the book" to kick the hell out of some characters and trust me they are not the ones you think. Until now i have read this book i think four times and still can not get enough of it. </["br"]></["br"]></["br"]></["br"]>

My Review for "Blood Promise" book 4

Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4)Blood Promise by Richelle Mead

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Aw i have so many mixed feeling about this book, even though made cry, love and hate it so many time i still give it 5 stars. Blood Promise is the 4th book from the series that is more based on Rose adventure in Rusia then the academy.

What happens at the academy we only find out when Rose taps into Lisa's head (anyway not many things happen at the academy). Lisa deals with Rose absence by trying to make new friends and stay busy in school and practicing every time she had a chance with Adrian. The new characters are getting on my nerves , even though some are making Lisa pretty happy and some is helping Rose. All the things that happen in this book literally broke my heart so much, so sad (even though is still full of adventure, battles and many other things), how hurt Rose is feeling in the book. However Rose is "traveling" fighting Strigoi risking her life believing if she finds Dimitry and keeps her promise then all the hurt and pain that is inside her, will fade away and she will finally be able to go with her life.

Something that happens in the book drives me so crazy, so many mixed emotions, especially when Dimitry and Rose meet for the first time since he had became a Stigoi. I do not know what to believe about how he actually feel about Rose (how can strigoi love, have emotion, that confuses me and he says to her to stay with him for their love), don't get me wrong is a little bit interesting and fun their relationship now (will she stay with him or kill him). Lisa changes while Rose is away from her to get all the darkness away from her, she became more bitchy and mean with people, and she can not admit how angry she is at Rose, she just goes crazy at Christan because she thinks that he is cheating on her. Can not wait to see what happen in the next book, honestly i am a little scared to see what happens.

My Review for "Shadow Kiss" book 3

Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy, #3)Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Have to say i did expect the book to capture me but not on the level not to leave me to sleep or work(thank God i have the audio book, so put my heads phones on and continue my job). I can not explain in words how much i love the book so that is why i give 5 stars for it.

Shadow Kiss is the 3rd book from the Vampire Academy series, and is the best out of all of them. Most of the action happens at the academy and its neighborhood. Lisa get more control over her magic with the help of Adrian, but the their 6 weeks as guardians test changes everything (one thing is because Rose is Christian guardian not Lisa's). In this volume you will find out that Rose takes some power from the spirit too, some is bad some is good. Also lots of things happen between Rose and Dimitry (their love looks more strong then ever but can it survive what is coming for them?). Although it might seem to late Rose spills out all her secrets to Dimitri and Lisa (but it was because she had no more choice she need it help).

PLEASE DO NOT READ, BIG SPOILER ALERT (view spoiler)

This book had touch my heart in a way no books had ever done it before. For a book to get so close to writer's (me) heart it has to been written by an amazing author. Us writes we have a huge imagination and is very hard to get a book to amaze us so much. </["br"]></["br"]></["br"]></["br"]></["br"]></["br"]>

My Review for "The Fault in Our Stars"

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Please do not read this if you love this book, for me even 3 stars is a push, is not that i do not enjoy reading it but i didn't love it.

Ok everyone love this book, and please do not blame me not to like much, and is not because i read most of the fantasy books. I have done reviews on lots of romance books, and even some about cancer. This book in particular is like i do now, i feel like the author is struggling at some parts, and maybe boring ( and i saw the movie too, i felt the same thing).

I like Hazel and Augustus romance and how much he wanted to make her happy, even to use his wish. I am sorry but it was boring at some parts and i had to skip pages more then once. I do not know if it was the details (to much) or the way they were explained to us. She can not go anywhere without having the oxygen with her, but she does not even think once how sick he is exactly.

This is only my opinion please do not be upset that i did not like for her using a wish to find out more about a book...yes i love books and drives me crazy what could it happen but that is not a wish to waste like that. I know from his point of view , knowing he did not have any way of getting better so he wanted to make her happy.

My Review for "Sailor Moon" book 1

美少女戦士セーラームーン 1 (Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon Renewal Editions, #1)美少女戦士セーラームーン 1 by Naoko Takeuchi

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Love the cartoons and the book is amazing, just want to read the second book now, is a very good book for kids and everyone else that still has a kid inside of them. Explain everything with the pictures, very nice.
What i find it quite funny is that after seeing the reboot of the sailor moon show , now i see that this series resembles more with this show then to the previous one (although i loved the first show). Almost exact some part , of course for the show they expanded more and i like it , it gives us a little more info on what is going on. I saw some acts after reading the book and i was so happy that they introduce some of the characters in a different way that is in the book.

Still love the book that i had to re read , but i love the show more it give more funny parts from sailor moon side, and alot more details about some important events.

My Review for "The Return of the King" book 3

The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, #3)The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I love this series from the first time i saw the movies i have wanted to read them, and honestly i have not been disappointed. It has so many scenes that have not been included in the movie, and in my opinion some of them they are important, but the road to get the ring into the volcano it has been like a torture for me. This book i took it in audio and still i had to skip some parts related to frodo and sam's journey (way to many details that honestly i do not see any point in have them).

Love that at some point in the book i will remember the movie and i will picture everything even what is not in the movie, like the road to the "death" how gimli was scared and legolas had no problem walking in those tunnels. I will never forget when gimli says he can not believe that an elf is not afraid to go into a cave but he is. Also is so nice when legolas tries to make gimli feel better, or when they win a fight and gimli that legolas has one just by 1 orc.

The ending with golum is a bit different, and love the fact that it explains how the eagles get to frodo and sam, and that gandalf is the one explaining to aragon that he needs to trust the birds and that he will come back with the boys.

My Review for "The Two Towers" book 2

The Two Towers (The Lord of the Rings, #2)The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Ok first let me tell you that i did wrote a review for this book but somehow i lost it...I have first saw the all the movies before i even thought to read any of the books. I have read all 3 of them and they are all amazing but exactly how i thought some parts they have way to much details, that's why they are so big. I have reading it at the end of 2013 and finish reading in 2014.

I can tell you much only that at some key points in the book explains better then it did in the movie, or they adventure is played different then the movie (like most of the movies that are made after a book). Love all the time when Legolas and Gimli fight side by side, so funny, compared with the movie in the book is more adventure, and the fights they are explained in details. What is d not in the movie, the experience of the two hobbits (merry and pippin) when they are taken by the orcs. Each hobbit will tell their experience and where they go each time from its point of view. Is just amazing how they see the forest when they run to save their lives (the parts with them i am so sad it was not in the movie, like how the liquid that they were drinking took their hunger away and they will not feel so tired anymore). Its few chapters where explains everything that happens in the forest (the world that is in there and the languages).

Some of the things they are changed in the movie and i think i like it (but like the time that gandalf goes to save the kind from saruman i like it in the movie, because the evil wizard doesn't expect what is coming). At some points i was very confused because i was remembering what happen in the movie and when i tried to make a connection with the book it did not make any sense.

However i do not regret reading the book, because it made me love the lord of the rings series even more. If you love the movie you must read this book you will not regret it

My Review for "The Fellowship of the Ring" book 1

The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, #1)The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Amazing can not find the words to describe how much i enjoyed this book. I am rating it an overall 5 starts out of 5, it has so many pages but that does not overwhelm us with details.
Of course this book is a must read for the fans of the movie, but also for the ones that enjoy reading. In the book explains the journey of Frodo and Gandalf, how they overcome the danger that hunts them. Gives more details about Aragon's life, Arwen, and the Elfs life. Some details they are different then the movie (and i like it). Also give more details about Gandalf meeting with his old "friend" the white wizard. Reading the book i could not stop imagine i am seeing the movie with slight changes.
I could talk about the book for hours so i prefer to stop here and just tell that if you like the movie you just love the book, trust me the book is amazing.

My Review for "Dragon Ball" volume 1

Dragon Ball, Vol. 1 (Dragon Ball VIZBIG Edition, #1)Dragon Ball, Vol. 1 by Akira Toriyama

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This manga includes 3 volumes, those are :
-The Monkey King
I don't think is much that i have to say about this book, everyone has probably watched the show. The stars on goodreads they are not enough for this manga, i just love it.

This volume is about goku , how he lives, meeting bulma , learning the story about the drangon ball. Also please be prepared to laugh a lot , especially enjoying all the times when Goku does his pat-pat to see if is a girl or a boy. That is not everything you will enjoy, is what Bulma will do to get the dragon ball, or even make Goku do.

-Wish upon a dragon
In this volume they will meet yamcha, and find out so many things that happens in the cities that they travel in, and like always bulma offers to help but put Goku to get the job done. Of course you will have lot to laugh about everything that is happening. Also they finally get all the dragon ball awaken, and make their wish, but because the dragon balls were stolen the wish had to be done quick.

-The traning of Kame-Sen'nin
I think the title explains everything in this book, but what is important about the training and how do they get so strong is in the most funniest way. ( i wonder if i do those things in real life can i fly? Haha) In this volume Goku meets Krilin and what they have to do to be trained the master. However after the training is over they participate in a big tournament where they find out their true power.

My Review for "Rapture" book 4

Rapture (Fallen, #4)Rapture by Lauren Kate

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I am so so Sad because this is the last book from the series and i loved all of them. Therefore i will give a big 5 stars for the cover and of course for the content.

This book made me laugh. cry, yell, hate and love the characters and everything inside it. I hate that one of my favorite characters dies saving Luce life. Actually lots of characters will die because of the big battles will be held, but in the end you will see that everything was worth it. (OMG what an ending, the only thing i will tell you guys is that maybe Daniel and Luce will be able this time to have their happy ending) Hey but not everything is bad, we find out the true identity of Luce, which is WOW. We find out how powerful she is and why did everyone tries so hard to protect her, and nobody can tell her who she truly is. All of this is connected with the curse, because believe it or not it come from something higher even then the angels.

Again the author surprises me with the originality of the story, and some of the amazing new characters that can "bend" time even from the eyes of the angels. Also there are some sort of angels that keep track of the angels and demons on earth not to break any rules. Unfortunately the history is about to repeat itself because of some selfish angel that think he can have anything because he is higher even then God.

If you have a chance please listen to the audio book because at the end you will have part of a nice surprise.
