Intimate Enemies

Author: Shana Abe

Let us begin with this, the book is not for everyone. That said, I loved it!

How many times do I say that about a book? Quite often, I know, but if you know me then you know I mostly write here about the books I enjoyed.

Intimate Enemies was difficult for me to really start reading, I had it on my phone for some time actually, and I had read the first page I think, first line and was like, eh, maybe not, even though it was Shana’s and I love how she writes, one of my favourite authors, in case you didn’t figure that one out due to the extensive quotes I have all around from her books, and the fact that most of my reviews are about books by her.

I strayed from the path there, sorry. Back to IE, it has a certain uniqueness to it; the book is set years ago, as in 1170’s more or less, and by the title you can guess that this two clans are not really friendly, until Arion and Lauren are old enough to know they have a thing for each other. Are you planning on reading the book? Don’t worry there is not much spoiler here.

The Sweetest Dark Books

By Shana Abé

Well hello readers! Here we are again. Another book or books, another post full of my inner thoughts.

If you are a regular to Books Everywhere, then you might know Ms. Shana Abé, author of the Drákon Series and many other books. The Drákon Series is by far one of my favourite stories, and of course Shana is one of my absolute favourite authors, since she is one of the few who actually makes me read descriptions and pay attention to the little things in a book (although I know I’ve said that I don’t) because if you don’t know those details, then you end up completely lost and have to go back a chapter or two and find out what truly happened.

But enough of that, you are reading this because you want a new book to read or you love these two in The Sweetest Dark Series. Let us begin.

The Mortal Instruments #6

Author: Cassandra Clare

Apparently, I didn’t write a post about the most amazing, awesome book in The Mortal Instruments Series.

Whoa, anyone would think I didn’t LOVE this book. Now you know, I did. It was great, I remember I would stay up late reading, I would wake up and read… think about it when I wasn’t reading it. Wish for Magnus to be on every freaking page but he wasn’t and that’s alright, Jace was or Izzy or Alec… I’m not a big fan of some but hey that doesn’t really matter, the best ones are still there.

The Time Traveler’s Wife

Author: Audrey Niffenegger

 This one is difficult for me… because I could write only a couple of words and be done with it. Such as: I love this book or I like the movie.

The problem comes to whether you have read the book or watched the movie at some point. I think I’ll go with: This might Contain Spoilers, if you read something you don’t know don’t blame me. You’ve been warned!

Drákon Series

By Shana Abé

I decided to make these entries by book, why? Because they are all different, at least in character. They all have a different set of characters as the main protagonists, so this is the best way of explaining each one, also each book is great and unique; even, if they all talk about Drákon they still differ in some aspects.

I might add that they all follow a story, I have yet to read the 5th book but as far as I can tell they all have good stories, plots. Let us start with the first four books in this series.

Idhun’s Memories

The Idhún’s Memories

By Laura Gallego García

Greatest Spanish book ever!!! Noticed the 3 exclamations points? Exactly, it is that good.

My favourite book or one of my favourites in the fantasy department. It tops up with Harry Potter, The Dark Artifices, and Drakon Series, not in what happens but in what they make you think and feel, in the sense of reading a great book.

I was going to describe some of the creatures on the books but it may take some of the excitement out of reading it; when I first read it I didn’t know a thing about it, only that it was fantasy and that was one of the best things and worst thing that could have happened to me.

The 5th Wave Thoughts

So about The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, haven’t finish it yet. 62% and now is getting exciting although I’m still waiting to get surprised I don’t know if it is that I was measuring all the possibilities while Cassie (main character) was talking/thinking delusional thoughts throughout the whole book or if I am just deductive or maybe Rick wrote it in that way so WE, the readers, would know but Cassie wouldn’t. I had one surprise many chapters ago but the rest I was: Yes, exactly. What else could it have been?

I am not saying the book is bad; it’s great actually, I was just pointing those parts out. The worst as usual (lately) is that I have to wait until September 16th 2014, supposedly, to read the 2nd part (*sigh*).

Hush Hush

I Love Patch

That is it, that is all I have to say, Not! Lol, actually I spent like a week or so thinking of Patch Cipriano after I was done with the saga; I was/am so smitten, captivated and all of that, I don’t know what it is about Patch I just know that I find him breath-taking and one of the best male characters.

Lux Series

By Jennifer Armentrout

   Being done with Obsidian and Onyx, thought I would stop by and say: Oh My Lord! Even when I find Katy a tiny bit annoying, Daemon on the other hand can be very annoying for her, I find him Hilarious, he may be egocentric and proud and full of himself but I like the character, what can I say? Bad guys are hot and I think I relate to him in some levels.
