Grave Surprise


Description: While in Memphis, psychic Harper Connelly senses--and finds--two bodies in a grave. One is of a man centuries-dead. The other, a recently deceased girl. Harper's investigation yields another surprise: the next morning, a third body is found--in the very same grave.

My opinion:
This book is the 2ND in the Harper Connelly Series. It was a good book full of interesting and well developed characters, It's a mystery that will keep you guessing until the end. I love it has that other world fantasy aspect which is away from the citch of vampires etc. It was well thought out, every character had a role to play and it wasn't confusing trying to keep up as some mysteries are. Charlaine is always consistent with her writing which I love it has that same charm as her other work in the past.

Harper is an interesting and likable character I like the glimpses we get into her upbringing, the relationship she has with Tolliver will keep you wondering about them for sure. I look forward to reading more of these books 4out of 5

Tall Dark & Dead.


Tate Hallaway:


Garnet Lacey is a witch with a past shes quit magic cold turkey since summoning the goddess Lilith in a time of much need. Only problem is the Goddess now lives inside of her!
Running from Vatican witch hunters which isn't easy she meets Sebastian who without an aura is so undoubtedly dead but so sexy... I guess it all spells trouble.
My Opinion:
This is the 1st book in a series, its far from a heavy reading book. Its not going to make an impact and it probably wont stay with you.
Its a book that's a light quick read to pass the time on a summers day when you have nothing better to do but to relax.
There wasn't anything I didn't like about the book I did in fact enjoy it... but I wasn't really hooked.
It had some funny moments and the characters are enjoyable..Parrish was my favorite he livened up the story a lot, and innocent dorky William was a fun element.
If you come across it its worth a read. 3 out of 5

Saying to much!

I'm now 30 weeks pregnant and at 38 weeks I am going to have a C-section. This wasn't by choice but from medical opinion. Ive been to see 2 doctors who told me the same thing,
during my 1st labor which was natural my son got stuck in my pelvis so after 10+ of labor and 2hrs + of pushing they used the vacuum to pull him out. In doing this I suffered a lot of muscle damage and nerve damage. If I was to have a natural birth this time it would put a lot of strain on my baby as well as cause even more damage to me resulting in surgery anyways.

It seems when people hear I'm having a C-section they all have opinions! so far Ive heard
  • Real women don't have C-sections... REALLY Real women take care of there children Real women put the well being and health of there child first. This is what I'm doing!
  • Why would opt for a C-section its lazy... Nothing about child birth is "easy" which ever way you do it. I didn't opt for anything it wasn't a choice i had. I cant really say I'm looking forward to getting my gut cut open while being awake... but that's a stroll in the park right.

Then there is the people who love to share the horror stories, I was out at a festival last weekend when a woman i didn't know thought it was her responsibility to give me her opinion.

Comments made:

  • Its so much more worse then giving birth naturally
  • Don't take pain meds or they wont leave the baby with you
  • They strap you to the bed
  • you wont be able to stand straight for 3 months

HELLO do i need to know this stuff really all these people are now doctors... more like DR no MD. some people are so ignorant! Really stop talking if it was so easy we would all be doctoring and have masters.

Kissed by an angel



Kissed by an angel: Elizabeth Chandler


When Ivy's boyfriend dies in a car accident they where both in, shes left desolate alone and confused with out him. Until she learns he hasn't left her in fact hes an angel watching over her trying to keep her safe from harm. Tristan has a mission to keep Ivy safe from danger this is his purpose on earth. Somebody is trying to kill Ivy, but once his mission is over does that mean the love they share is also over?



My Opinion: This book is close to 700 pages long and I read it in two days! I loved everything about this book. It contains a little bit of everything you could possibly want in a story, suspenseful and romantic.. it really kept me guessing at times, I doubted so many of the characters at times. What I like about Chandlers writing is she doesn't forget about any of her characters, they all bring something to the table. Philip was my favorite character he was extremely well written for a 9yr old boy, stubborn and wistful. Gregory was a brilliant villain it wasn't know right away but there was something not right and creepy about him through out which made you hate him.... which I think was the point.

With so many things going on through out the book and so many characters I was worried about the ending but she brought everything together beautifully.
The only down side for me was I thought Ivy should of figured out Gregory way before she did, it was frustrating and the way she was feeling for him made me cringe. Second I hoped we would of seen something better happen for Lacy then it did.
On the whole I definitely recommend it, its a 5 out of 5 for me! and I will surely be checking out more Elizabeth Chandler books

Bree Tanner

This book is about the 2nd life of Bree Tanner, a young vampire made to be a part of Victoria's army in her war against the Cullen's. Stephenie Meyer has a unique style a thorough style of writing which I truly enjoy I am never left feeling anything is missing.

The Bree Tanner story just adds another level to the twilight saga.. in the other books we don't hear about the Newborns side of the story. This book gives us a lot of insight I enjoying reading about the inner struggles of Bree, and the manipulation of the other vampires.

I wished there would of been more Bree and Diego's relationship they had an element of Bella & Edward. If Bree and Diego would of lived I believe they would of been a good edition to the Cullen clan.

We always knew The Voltori had there own plan but we actually see how under handed they are, my favorite part of the story was hearing that Bree was able to tell Edward everything she needed to before her final death.

I originally thought this book was going to be over kill after all Bree was such a small character in the saga. I was wrong this book told the story from another point of view and definitely worth the read for any twilight fan 4* out of 5

Alison Noel Dark flame


ABOUT: In Noel's most darkly seductive Immortals novel yet, Ever fights for control of her body, her soul--and the timeless true love she's been chasing for centuries.

In shadow land we see Ever dabble with magic she doesn't understand and how it back fires big time. Dark Flame is about her finding a way to fix the mess she has created, while trying to teach Haven all about being an immortal. Dark Flame is a story of somebody loosing control and letting there dark side take control.

IN MY OPINION: After the way shadow land ended I was highly frustrated! I felt like nothing changed nothing was new and it really annoyed me.
Dark flame is definitely worth the read we see different sides to characters which make us understand them better. I no long hate roman with a passion lol!

Ever continues her slightly misguided ways, determined to finish things already set in motion in earlier books. She has the same determination and generally positive her way is the right one. The latter has been one thing that has bothered me through the books though it does strike true to her character. In Dark Flame, however, Ever goes through tremendous personal growth, finally showing strong development that her character has resisted in previous books.

This 4th book I personally feel did make the story better and stronger, I certainly don't feel the same as when I finished the 3rd book, this series isn't a fast paced fast answer type so if you read it your in for the long haul..I am still not convinced about the story honestly, we will see. NIGHT STAR OUT WINTER 2010
over all 3 out of 5

Eclipse!!




ABOUT:

In ECLIPSE, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob -- knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.


MY OPINION:


I loved the movie!! It was awesome I think best of the 3 so far, it contained a lot of the book which was great. It also had a lot of its funny quirky one liners that make the twilight movies! You got to see some of the Cullen's past human lives, the special effects were GREAT! I love love love how they look as if there running like 100mph lol.

The fight scene was awesome very graphic, lots of back flips and kick ass movies..

And for all us romantics there was lots more touchy feely between Edward and Bella.. oh and Jacob is shirtless for 90% of the movie lol.

Total AAAAAA, a must see for any fan
