The Walking Dead Comic Book Series

Hello everyone. I've been away for a while, but this is a great on going series of comic books that became a TV series not that long ago. If you have not read the books, or if you haven't seen the show you should give it a read/watch. The story starts when Rick Grimes, a police officer with a loving family, awakes in an abandoned hospital after falling into a comma due to a gun shot wound. Soon he finds that the people in the hospital did not just leave him there for death. In fact, almost every one of them has become one of the walking dead, zombies that walk the earth in search of their only food source; the living. As Rick tries to come to terms with his new world he sets off for Atlanta in hopes of finding his wife Lori and son Carl. After a bad run in with some walkers in Atlanta he finds a group of survivors living on the outskirts of the city. There he finds his family, alive and well and his journey begins. He sets off with his new group in search of safer land wh

I'm sorry...

Hey everyone, I'm really sorry that I haven't been posting lately. I haven't been reading because I made myself a promise that I was going to work on my school grades until I got them to a place where I am satisfied. So it may be a few months before I read anything and post again. Until them, please be patient and know that my bookshelf is filling up with many books to read. Thanks everyone :) 

Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi

Hey everyone. Just finished Destroy Me, it's book 1.5 in the Shatter me series. This book is from Warner's point of view after he lost his love Juliette.  I was surprised how much I liked this book. From Juliette's point of view I knew he was crazy and really liked her. But from his point of view I see just how insane and in love he really is with her. Though it isn't like a normal book, no climax or real story line, there is a lot of good moments. This is one of those books that makes me really excited for the next book to come out. Unravel me isn't coming out until next year though, so I will just have to wait until it does come out to find out what Warner will do if he finds Juliette. I'd give this 5 out of 5 stars because it is short, but filled with so much emotion I just wanted to read it over and over again. Hope you enjoy :)


Hey everyone. Over the last few days I have been doing inventory on some of my books and I realized I don't have anything to read anymore! I have a few books to finish the week with, and a few back up books for if I run out sooner than expected, but I am completely out of ideas of new books to order! I'm going to keep this page open to everyone hopefully forever so that you, the viewers, can tell me what you think. I need help getting more books that are basically like the ones I have written about in my blog. If you have any books you want to recommend I would be more than happy to hear about it. It would be a great help, thanks! :)

Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout

ONYX!!!!!! I have been waiting for this book to come out for sooooooo long! The first post I ever posted on this blog was Obsidian, the first book in this series. This is the second book, and this was relatively good. Although this book was not as mind blowing like the first book, a lot of stuff happened. We continue where we left off, with Katy and Daemon. This is a couple I seriesly love, almost more so than Damon and Elena. This book has a lot of surprises and betrayals that were not expected at all. I can't tell you guys anything that happens in this book otherwise it would completely ruin the first book.  I can tell you that it is a really great book, and it leaves a lot open for the next book, Opal. I loved the characters and the developments even though there was a lot of repetition in some things said from Daemon to Katy. I would rate this Four out of Five stars.

The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

Hello again everyone! I've just finished The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead. Now this is the second book in the Bloodlines series, and the next series after the Vampire Academy series in case you didn't already know. While I didn't like the Vampire Academy series so much, this series I am seriously getting into. I just love the slightly there slightly not there relationship between Sydney, the wise Alchemist, and Adrian, the witty Moroi.  In this book we continue with Sydney, now living in Palm Springs to continue to protect Jill from enemies trying to dethrone Lissa. Here she is constantly pushed to the limits of trying to be a good Alchemist, and trying to be friends with her mortal enemies the vampires. This becomes more and more of a struggle as Adrian wriggles his way deeper into her life. Thankfully now she has a boyfriend, yes a boyfriend who is not Adrian, and he is keeping her mind off Adrian, for the most part. But life is not all Palm trees and paradise for

Bloodline by Richelle Mead

Hello again everyone! Just finished reading Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. It was certainly better than the vampire academy series in my opinion, but let me make this very clear, I did not finish that series so this one is a bit confusing. But still, I really like the storyline and characters in the book. You meet Sydney Sage, who apparently played a minor role in the Vampire Academy series, who is sent on a mission to redeem herself after assisting vampires despite the fact that she is an Alchemist. Needless to say, they are supposed to hate vampires. There she meets Jill, Lissa's sister from the original book series. She has gone into hiding after an attempt at her life at a council meeting. Her job is to make sure that Jill isn't discovered as a vampire. She runs into some trouble though with Adrian, another character from the original series, someone who she instantly does not get along with. The story follows her journey along with Jill and Adrian.  Now, in my opini

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Hello again everyone! Today I finally finished Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. To be completely honest about this book, my expectations might have been a bit too high going into this. It was good, with a good story line, but the characters.... I just couldn't get into them. Not even the love interest Demitri. You start off the story by meeting Rose, the main character, and Lissa. They are running from these people, not saying who, who want to bring them back to the Vampire Academy. Of course, they get caught and are brought back. There we learn that Rose is Lissa's guardian and that Lissa is a princess and a very powerful vampire.  After that things basically go back to, what they say, things were before they ran away. Rose is portrayed as quite the slutty character by the author. She states many times that Rose makes out with boys she barely knows over and over again. You are introduced to the bad guys, the strigio, and some potential bitch characters like Mia, who

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Hello again everyone! The book you see above is Divergent by Veronica Roth. It was recommended to me by a good friend who after shoving it in my face for days finally convinced me to move it to the top of my list.  Overall, it was a good book that was well written. The characters are well developed with good back stories and secrets. Come the end of the book I honestly didn't expect what happened to happen. You start off with Beatrice, part of the faction of Abnegation which is all about selflessness. Her whole life she has been told it is her duty to give to others until the choosing ceremony her and her brother must go to. They have six factor choices at this ceremony. They can choose to be Erudite, all about seeking knowledge. They can be Candor, all about telling the truth. They can choose Amity, the hippies of the group. They can choose Dauntless the brave daredevils that protect the cities. Or they can choose to stay Abnegation with their parents. Beatrice's brothe

Endlessly by Kiersten White

Okay, so let me start off by saying WHAT AN AMAZING FINISH! Look at that cover! Something so amazing calls for high expectations. And Endlessly has lived up to it completely. I have never heard one bad thing about this book. It is another third and final book in the Paranormalcy trilogy.  Main character Evie teams up with the unpredictable Jack, and to everyone's surprise and joy, Reth, to, first of all, save Lend who get's captured by the Dark Queen and then open a gate for all the paranormals in existence.   But of course nothing is as simple as it seems. Reth is still up to his mischievous ways, and in every way showing signs of being crazy. For some reason he is convinced that once the gate is open Evie is going to give up her life and her boyfriend to go into paradise with him. While at the same time Evie is trying to live with the fact that she can't walk into the same room as Lend without him passing out. With time running out and the people closest to Evie un

Bound by Erica O'Rourke

Hello everyone! I have started reading a little earlier then I had originally planned, and this is thankfully the first book I started with. So this is Bound, the third and final book in the Torn series by Erica O' Rourke. Let me just say, an amazing end to the series. The character I love the most, not saying which one ;), ends up with the main character and everything ends in a perfect way.  Of course there is a very long and crazy action filled scene, a few secrets everyone is hiding, and betrayals from people you honestly saw it coming from. I loved this book every page of the way. There were a few points where I wasn't sure whether I was happy or angry with where the story was going, but everything worked out in the end.  I would definitely recommend this book to others to read. And in my book it get's four stars for it's amazingly developed characters.  


Hello Everyone! I haven't been reading anything lately, but rest assured I have a very long line up of books including Vampire Academy, and Divergent.  Now, I don't know when I'm going to get around to reading these books because my shelf is filled with books on books on books and work has been keeping me occupied. I just thought I would let everyone know that I don't plan on giving up the blog yet, and if you have any books you want a good review on just leave me a note and I will put it on my list ;) Have a great day where ever you are! :)

Destined by Aprilynne Pike

Hello everyone, the book you see above is Destined by Aprilynne Pike. This is the fourth and final book in the Wings series, a series I just started reading a few months ago.  I have to say I fell in love with this series from the very beginning. I loved Tamani, the fairy guard that was sent to watch Laurel our stories main character. In this story Yuki and Klea are on the prowl. A winter fairy, the most powerful of them all, Yuki hopes to help Klea destroy Avalon so that they can take over and rule. But as you know if you read the series Laurel and her friends won't stand by and let that happen. Together with Chelsea, David and Tamani by her side Laurel prepares for a battle for the safety of all fairies. Many will die and many will find that they are destined to do better things, just like David did. There is always some sort of action going on that keeps you one hundred percent attached to the pages, turning the pages so frantically that I got at least two paper cuts! Or

Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep

Hello again everyone, I just finished reading Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep, the fourth book in the Mythos Academy series. Gwen and friends start their day with an exciting trip to the museum, that turns horrible when they are attacked by reapers. Gwen comes face to face to sword with the women her killed her mother, and though the battle is intense the girl gets away before Gwen, with her trusty sword Vic, can end her life. Back at the academy things are finally going back to normal after the attack at the ski resort before the break. But now the Fenrir wolf that Gwen helped in the previous book is back as well, carrying a tiny surprise in HER stomach ;) While Gwen is searching up and down trying to find the dagger that her mother his before her death she has to deal with a few problems that seem to keep coming up. One of those problems happens to be Logan Quinn. The sparton boy has been seriously close to the gypsy girl ever since she nearly died at the hands of a Reaper at the

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Okay, so this is Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. When I read the back, and when my friends all said I had to read it I had my doubts.  What could be romantic about someone who couldn't touch the ones she loves? But that's just the thing, the ones who truly love her can touch her without dying. It starts out in an asylum in a dystopian society where the reestablishment runs everything in the world. Juliette has been locked away for 264 days before her new roommate Adam is brought to her. Though he wants to get to know her, she shuts him out until the day the soldiors come. They bring Juliette out and she realizes that Adam was a soldior the whole time. She is introduced to Warner, the son of the head honcho at the Reestablishment. He knows a lot about Juliette and what she can do. And he wants her to be a soldior for him, fighting at his side. Though she refuses he is determined to make her his and takes her to a place where she can live comfortably and be monitored while he

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

I'm sorry everyone, but I can't lie to you about this book... It was a back up book so I didn't have very high expectations, and yet it still fell so low below my book standards. I have never really felt any need to read books on werewolves, or Guardians as they call them in the book, but I had heard good things about this one and the cover caught my attention. And to be honest, when I started reading it, it wasn't all that bad. You have Calla, or Lily as her soon to be mate Ren calls her, Shay who she saved from a bear attack, and Ren Calla's to be mate who is the alpha wolf from a rival pack.  Calla is an interesting character in this book because, though she tells herself she is strong, she always ends up giving into both men who want her heart. And don't be mistaken, she has never really liked Ren, their mating is something that the witches, or Keepers, are forcing them to do. Shay on the other hand is connected to her in a different way in which I ca

Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton

So above you can see that I have recently finished reading Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton. And to be completely honest about this book I am on the fence about whether or not I liked it...  It was one of my back up books, a book that I would only read if the books I ordered didn't arrive before I finished my other books, so I didn't have very high expectations of it. But it wasn't the worst book I've ever read I'll say that much. You have Ellie, a girl who seems pretty normal with normal friends living a normal life. Blah blah blah, everything is happy and normal... Until her seventeenth birthday when the strangely familiar Will shows up and awakens her power. She learns from him that she had been reincarnated for thousands of years, no one knows why, to fight the evil reapers so that they don't destroy humanity. As she comes to terms with her newfound abilities, and her memories begin to come back, her relationship with Will becomes more and more h

Endure by Carrie Jones

So this is my latest read! Endure by Carrie Jones is the forth book in the Need series and, as far as I can tell, is the final book to the series!  While in the first book I enjoyed the romance between Zara, the main character, and Nick, the sexy wolf shifter, I found myself loving Zara's new found pixie friend Astley in the second and third. After Zara became a pixie, and Nick was gone, I just started falling in love with the Astley Zara couple faster and faster! In the forth book I loved that though Nick was back Astley and Zara still held on to the romance they shared in his absence. And though the end of the world is drawing near and the humans need to be recruited as fierce warriors, the two still hold onto hope that Zara can stop the apocalypse like the prophecy says. All she has to do is prevent Loki from being set free... But as the end approaches Zara finds that all is not what it seems; there is Hel, who is Loki's daughter who wants to help in any way she can,

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Just Finished reading this book called Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Cool last name huh?) and I have to say it was one of the best books I've read in a while. All the books I've read before were about zombies and strange magic, and none of them have been any good :S Though the plot line seemed strange when I read the back of the book, it turned out to be really amazing. The back says that there is an obnoxious, yet very attractive, boy living next door, but here's the catch, he's an alien! So stick with me here! When I read that they were aliens I was weary to reading it, but it wasn't anything like the E.T kind of things you see in the movies at all! Daemon and his sister Dee are in every way human, minus the fact that they can stop time, freeze things and turn into a glowing ball of light... But the point is they don't really seem like the classic aliens I had imagined reading about. Now imagine this... Another Alien girl named Ash shows up, no sh
