Annabeth Neverending, from Leyla Kader Dahm

AnnabethNeverendingTourBanner-2.png

Hello! Welcome to Annabeth Neverending book tour, host by Xpresso Blog Tours! I was kindly sent a review of Leyla Kader Dahm’s book in exchange for an honest review for my stop, so thank you Xpresso Book Tours! The moment is here 😀

The Story

Annabeth isn’t the most normal 15 year old girl. She suffers with sleep walking, can’t bring herself to be coordinated enough on the cheer leader practice and has never kissed a boy before. Also, to make everything worse, she strongly suspects that her parents love her younger brother best, as she is adopted and he isn’t.

But everything becomes unmanageable when she acquires an ankh pendant and meets Gabriel, a peculiar 17 year old boy already majoring in archeologist. The pendant opens the way to a remote past, from her soul’s previous life, and Gabriel opens her heart to the real meaning of being alive in the present.

But as her past life collides with her present life, Annabeth isn’t sure if she should trust Gabriel or even his twin brother, C. J., whom she meets by chance at a Halloween party – that also happens to be her 16th birthday.

Can Annabeth still believe in coincidences? Should she follow her destiny or listen to her heart?

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

I’ve always been fascinated by the ancient Egypt. Since I was a child and started watching Scooby-Doo, I had a thing for mummies, pyramids and so on. I even wanted to be an archeologist, to my parents’ dismay, as I loved to uncover the old times secrets. Then I became a journalist to uncover current times secrets. Ironies of life. So I knew I’d love Annabeth Neverending, as the premise was brilliant. I just wasn’t expecting to like Annabeth herself or the narrative style. AND OMG, THAT TWIST IN THE END WAS BRILLIANT! I knew it would come and I didn’t guess it anyway!! =O The only thing that kept this book of being a perfect five stars for me is that I couldn’t manage to connect with the characters or swoon over the boys. So, a star was lost here, but THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD!!! Four proud stars and I want to read it again sometime! I need to see if I should have seen the twist coming, haha!

The narrative was first person styled from Annabeth’s point of view only and this worked so well on this book! It was a lovely surprise ❤ I didn’t miss a detail and almost all loose ends were tied – I can’t say more due spoilers, but I wonder if there won’t be another book to follow this one. One very important matter was left to be solved, haha!

The plot was very good and rather complex, as there were so many elements to it. Annabeth needed to find herself, her soul mate, fight his evil brother and still manage to hold together her teenage life with a hypochondriac mom, a silent-judging father and a very nosy younger brother. Mystery, romance, funny and sad moments, time-travelling, Egypt culture, legends and myths, Annabeth Neverending had a bit of every good element that makes a good book. AND HAVE I MENTIONED THAT TWIST?!

anigif_enhanced-buzz-9646-1387064448-0

At first I was all about eye rolls for the amorous triangle, but as the story went, things got complicated and Annabeth herself kept doubting if she was really in love or simply impressed by two beautiful boys. Also, they weren’t that different in personality – both were essencially good boys, so there wasn’t that good guy/bad guy deal, you know? And even when evil things started to happen because one of the boys, Annabeth doesn’t get bored with the allegedly “good guy” and runs off to the “bad guy”. She holds her ground and her feelings at bay, always trying to be fair and rational. She succeeded in almost all scenes, haha! I love intelligent and strong females in YA ❤ Both qualities seem to be lacking in the genre overall, ugh!

And I still can’t believe that I truly enjoyed a book with an amorous triangle.

awkward silence

I mentioned I didn’t connect with the characters, even after saying how much I admire Annabeth. Weird much? I agree. I don’t know why, but even though I was enjoying myself greatly reading Annabeth Neverending, I simply didn’t care what happened next with her and the boys. They were well constructed characters and very loveable, but I don’t know. I felt… Detached. And I feel awful for that because it looks like they aren’t good main characters and they TOTALLY are!!

tumblr_lwu7nl6ZIS1r02765

Also, I loved how Dahm used Egypt culture and its elements, how accurately she described Annabeth’s past life and the brilliant use she did of History’s loop holes. Things that happened with Ana, Annabeth’s first life, happened all the time in Egypt royal families. Documents and records get lost all the time, especially the real old ones. Now and then, archeologists keep discovering rich tombs on the Orient’s sands, hidden by nature and lost from History.

Overall, if you enjoy amorous triangles, strong females, mind blowing twists and Egypt, Annabeth Neverending is for you!!

The Copper, from Bonnie Dee

Hello again! Welcome to the first of what I hope shall be many reviews for today! Last night I started and finished a lovely book from one of my favorite authors in the world: The Copper, from Bonnie Dee. Imagine how much I fangirled when Bonnie was kind enough to send me an ARC in exchange for an honest review and how much I suffered with my own booked bookish schedule (haha) and with the forced await until yesterday. And imagine how much my parents and offline friends suffered while I read the book and laughed hysterically or “awww-ed” or started to tap my feet on the floor in a nervous reflex. If you didn’t know already, I’ll tell you this: it’s a bitch to be near a reading fangirl.

anigif_enhanced-10232-1392852224-9

Before getting this review started, I just want to thank Bonnie again for the kindness and say that you made my night yesterday ❤ Now enough gibber jabber, let’s do this!

The Story

Lord Avery Wickersham is the epitome of a carefree wealthy man. He does what he wants when he wants and how he wants. Nothing stays in his way when he sets his mind into something. But not even all his determination is enough to fulfill his empty existence. No matter how many men pass his bed, how many alcohol, opium, money and games. Lord Avery Wickersham is a lonely man without a purpose in life.

Until he’s found in bed with other two men by a police raid.

Connor Tate is the epitome of the fair police officer. He follows rules on the clock, breathes justice and battles for a more equal world, righting all the wrongs he can. Nothing stays in the way of his determination – not even his illegal desire for other men. Connor knows that sacrifices have to be made in life for a greater good and he is very good at his work. No matter how much he craves a mate, intimacy or even just a friend. His duty will always comes first. Connor Tate is a lonely man with a firm purpose in life.

Until he finds Lord Wickersham in bed with two other men in a routine police raid.

As Avery and Connor’s worlds collide, both men realize that they won’t ever be themselves again. Avery doesn’t mind in the slightest that he has to play low to prevent further scandal in society – he was arrested, after all – and Connor can’t ignore all the feelings that a certain lord awoke in him with his noble acts towards his bed mates. And maybe with his winning smile.

But can Avery prove to Connor that they can work out as a couple? Can Connor get past his conscious and allow himself to be happy for the first time in his life?

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

So, as you may have noticed, I love Bonnie Dee’s works. I have been pinning to read The Cooper since I found out about it in February and I knew it would be a blast. Bonnie knows her business when it comes to writing and character developing, so I knew I was in capable and safe hands. I just didn’t expected to be swept off my feet with the thriller vibes from The Copper. It was so refreshing to read a gay historical romance with this element! Really rewarding ❤ I also loved the dark and down-to-earth tone of the book, very realistic without losing the romance charm, you know? So I’m a satisfied, surprised and delighted fangirl at the moment, haha! I couldn’t give it any less than five stars!!

tumblr_inline_mke0tjxooR1rqh8d0

The narrative style is third person with switching points of view between Copper and Avery. Have I mentioned that this is my favorite one? Always, I know. Sorry for that. It was so nice to be able to dive deep in the minds of Avery and Copper. Both were such complex and lovely characters! I usually pick a favorite man among my gay couples, but I couldn’t decide between them! Avery and Copper were really like two faces of a coin: the fun, easy-going, wealthy and powerful gentleman that has everything and has nothing versus the serious, reserved, lower-classed and average man that has little money and the world in his head. And they are glued together by fate ❤

The plot had a thriller and mystery tone to it, but it wasn’t complex. We discover all key pieces very soon and the longing for the who is not something that will drive the reader; it’s the why and how to stop it that will. Powerful people are involved in corruption and awful illegal deeds, people that can’t be reached by the regular means of the law in the turn of the 19th London. The kind of people that walks free of punishment to this day because of a name, or money or all together. It’s not hard to guess what will it happen, specially if you, like me, it’s a fan of Dee’s works, so don’t set your standards for a story with a huge twist. You’ll be left wanting.

neal cracking
it happens, right?

The characters are the strongest point in the book, along with the writing style. As I mentioned, Avery and Connor are very well constructed and so real that it hurts. I really wished I could tell them everything they thought of each other and simply hug them and assure everything would be just fine.

i'm going to hug you and you're going to take it

All of this you already knew, but I never mentioned how well constructed the side characters were. Bertrand, a main side kick, is awesome in his own way – few people would have survived what he endured – and added a lot to the plot. I also enjoyed Barbara to the core (I won’t say who she is due to spoilers) and Avery’s employees. The villains were also something else, all business and danger. Seriously. I love Bonnie Dee.

let me love you

Now, the sex scenes. I have to say that in not a single moment they were sex scenes, that would be a wrong way to call it. Everything that Avery and Connor did was pure love, desire and passion. No frantic releases just because they both liked men. No desperate fucks to relief their hard reality. Every touch, every kiss, every caress was for something more, a feeling that both barely comprehended until much later in the book, but stronger and powerful as few feelings are: love. It was all about love. The love for the freedom of touching, the love for intimacy and their love as a couple. I wouldn’t say that there is instalove in this book, but I understand if some people face it like that. Sometimes curiosity and need are mistaken for love. Sometimes passion is mistaken by love and it is okay. It happens. But not in The Copper. Avery and Connor know that what they have is a mutual curiosity, the result of two different worlds colliding, but they don’t think of love at all. Not even when their feelings develop in such a fashion, for my utter dismay.

tumblr_m8z2hzA6CJ1rtzlzf
I mean, seriously? Not a single “I love you” at all?

I also enjoyed the historical accuracy of this book, for good and bad. It’s a turn of the century London, in which a reputation is all a man has in the end of the day, no matter his social status. I love historical romances, especially the sugared ones, so a more realistic scenery did wonders to my mind, haha!

Overall, this is another masterpiece on Dee’s resume, with a bit of everything: romance, historical, gay love, mystery, thriller and self-discovery. If you love any of those genres, you can’t miss The Copper, a book that won’t allow you to close it until you reach the end. Seriously. I know, it happened to me, haha!

5star

That’s it, thanks so much for reading! And thanks a lot again to Bonnie Dee for the trust in sending me another of her works ❤ I loved every minute of this reading!!

The Copper will be out tomorrow, so I’ll update the post buying links then 😀

Publisher: Blue Tulip Publishing

Synopsis

Gertrude “Trudy” Dodsworth wants nothing more than to be with the love of her life, William Haddington, Earl of Waverly. Her father, the evil “sin collector” Frederick Dodsworth, forbids the union and sends Trudy and her mother far away to a town called Everdale. While there, Trudy catches the eye of the roguishly handsome and very controlling, Lawson Stockwell–also an earl. He asks for her hand in marriage. Trudy reluctantly agrees for the sake of her mother who has fallen suddenly ill.

William Haddington has hit a new low. Once thought of as a virtuous man, William has fallen from grace. Laden heavy with guilt, he trudges through life carrying the burden that is his to bear. He set the fire that disfigured Nicholas Wellington, The Beast of Ravenston. William goes to Everdale to start over, become himself again, try to move on, but when he sees the love of his life, Trudy, arm in arm with another man, he falls back into the bottle.

When the “gifts” begin appearing on his doorstep, William has no doubt they are from Lord Ravenston, who is known to get revenge on those who hurt him.

With time running out and his love for Trudy tearing him apart, William must decide if he will give into his feelings for her or force her to hate him forever.

Because The Beast is coming to Everdale.

And he’s coming to make William suffer.

Based on Sleeping Beauty.

The Glass Coffin 6

And yes, we have an excerpt! ❤

Excerpt

Only stalkers and men of ill-repute watched women from behind street corners and lampposts and carriages. William felt like both, but he could not keep her out of his sight.

He’d only just arrived in Everdale an hour before, and, to his surprise, he saw her immediately, Trudy, not fifteen paces away. He should have talked to her. Instead, he’d hidden.

William was a coward. He felt like a coward. He did cowardly things out of fear. Fear, his biggest weakness.

Fear made men do strange and peculiar things.

Fear made men travel hundreds of miles away from home to stay alive. Fear made men drink more than they should to forget the past — though William hadn’t drank in over five days, since he’d first left Darenset. And he felt it too. Every bit of him begged for a drink, only one, to take the edge off. Only one to chase the nightmares away.

Without the alcohol, William dreamed. In his dreams, he remembered everything. The fire. Lord Ravenston’s face. Losing Trudy. Blackmail by Mr. Dodsworth — a man even more evil than himself. Mr. Dodsworth was a ‘sin collector’, a man who collected the misdeeds of both the titled and commoners and used them against anyone he wished when the time suited him. Though William knew he shouldn’t judge. He had no way of being saved. What he’d done… He would never be forgiven. He didn’t deserve it.

He hadn’t meant to set the fire. No, that was a lie. He’d meant exactly to set the fire. Revenge and all. He’d just never meant for anyone to get hurt.

The fact that someone had, Nicholas Wellington — the Beast — well, it was fitting. William knew he’d never be forgiven. Not for the fire or what he’d done to his best friend, Vaughan, Earl of Brighton.

But, even with all that, even with the fact that he knew he’d spend his eternity in hell, William made the conscious decision to not drink — to try, try, to do good. He might never, in his mind, make it to the Pearly Gates, but he would do his damnedest to never hurt another living soul.

He never should have chosen Everdale; he knew that now. Not after he saw her. He should have hopped right back on the first carriage out of town and headed… somewhere. Anywhere. This was supposed to be a place to start over, refresh, and move on.

How could he move on with her beautiful face taunting him?

So, he crouched behind carriages and behind corners, watching, waiting, and gawking.

The first time his gaze had slid passed her, he hadn’t recognized her.

Gertrude — Trudy — Dodsworth had become more of a lady since that fateful night six months ago. Her long red hair that had always lain in unruly curls, the tresses he wanted so much to run his fingers through, to pull her toward him and take her lips on his, was piled atop her head like all the proper ladies. William understood pomp and circumstance. He understood the ways of the world, more than most. However, he missed seeing those wild locks. The girl who, though wealthy and well-brought-up, always had a wildness about her. But not around her father. No, she was too smart for that. Frederick Dodsworth would have scared the devil. He sure as hell scared William.

Around her father, Trudy was the perfect lady. Around William, it was completely different.

In Darenset, their encounters had come about unintentionally at first. They’d run into each other, literally, as he rounded a street corner on the way to Vaughan’s residence, and she’d come bounding around the other direction. She’d ended up on her bottom. William had wound up red-faced and apologetic.

Then, the most wonderful thing had happened.

She’d laughed.

A proper young lady, laughed at him — not at him. Not like he’d done something wrong, but a light-hearted chuckle. People around them had stopped and stared, but the girl hadn’t seemed to mind. She’d taken William’s extended hand, and he’d pulled her upright.

He’d found out later that she’d escaped her chaperone because she’d only wanted a few minutes to herself. Her father wouldn’t allow it. Trudy had always assumed he’d been afraid someone would hurt her. William figured it was because he had to control every single situation. Even his daughter.

Especially his daughter.

Time went on, and they continued to run into each other. William found that he looked forward to those meetings most in the world. Not the ones with the important folks that he had to attend. No, he daydreamed about Trudy, about pulling her into his arms, about things he knew he should not even consider.

Then came her ball, her coming-out party. And William had never felt more alive… and more scared. He’d known it meant that she’d start courting. Other men would be able to meet her, unless he asked her father for her hand. William had a title, a good title, anybody — well, most people — would love their daughter to marry above her station.

Not Mr. Dodsworth.

The answer had sullied William’s spirit, and he’d done something he never in his life imagined he’d do; he had set a blaze to Dodsworth’s textile factory.

He’d stood there and watched it burn.

Then he’d heard the screams.

Rowan of Rin, from Emily Rodda (Rowan of Rin #1)

Hi, again! I’m sorry, I’ve been reading a lot on the past few days and I can’t put up with my own rhythm to blog about them, haha! Today I bring to you another re-read: Rowan of Rin, from brilliant Emily Rodda!

rowan of rin.JPG
from my Instagram 😀

The Story

Rowan always felt a stranger on his own village. People in Rin were expected to grow up handling every physic aspect of life with perfection. But not Rowan. He was always too skinny, too thin, too scared… Useless. All the kids always made fun of him. The only thing that he never failed to do was to look after the village’s bukshas, a kind of breed between cow and sheep.

Until the bukshas’ lake rans dry and no one knows why.

Rowan knows he’s not a brave man as his father was before his death and that his own mother doesn’t believe in him to be strong, but he has to save the buskhas. The only creatures that ever believed him and never made fun of him. That trusted him.

So when he’s left with no other option but to travel to the Mountain with the other six villagers, Rowan decides that he will be brave for the bukshas.

Even if it scared him to death.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-5351-1389581734-11

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

If you have read this post, you know that I LOVE Emily Rodda. I’ve read the whole Deltora Quest series (all three parts of it) and then I started reading Rowan of Rin. As always, Brazilian publishers took so long between a book and other that I stopped reading it on the second book and when I got myself the third book, I could hardly remember the story at all. Hence the re-read, haha!

Rowan of Rin was everything good that I knew I had felt on my first reading and more. With real and relatable characters, a wonderful setting and life-saver riddles, it had everything that I love about a fantasy/adventure book. Five stars again ❤

miley cyrus hannah montana hugging stuffed animal

The narrative is third person styled, from Rowan’s point of view most of time, but anyone can barge in during the book. Even Estrela, Rowan family’s buksha. I personally love Rowan, he’s an adorable kid ❤ He’s always true to himself, no matter how bad things look or sound. I’ll get there in a moment lol

Also, I love Rodda’s writing style. It’s so fluid, detailed and addictive! I’ve read this book in one single hour, as I didn’t remember how it ended, just some pieces of their adventure. (I also read the following book in one seating, haha! Only the third was spilt on two sittings as life is not fair.) I dare to say that the dystopian created and Rodda’s writing are the strongest points on this book.

Rodda’s main characters have a very good thing and a poor thing about them. They observe a lot and pay attention to so many nice things, but they tend to not think about themselves a lot. To this day, I’m not really sure of Rowan’s looks, haha! All people around him is easier to picture, but it’s like he’s a nice faceless boy. I mean, I imagine him just like the Grand Chase character thanks to the name, that is similar, but I don’t have a book official version, you know?

ronan grand chase.jpg
This is Ronan, from Grand Chase! I miss this game so much, the Brazilian branch was closed on 2014 😦

But there’s another catch to Rodda’s characters. Each one of them is one type of person that you’ll find on a society. There’s the optimistic, the grumpy, the honest, the cheater, the workaholic, the loner, the wise… And so on. Still, they aren’t boring one you figure out which type each one of them will be, as Rowan brings the best on each of them. He rarely judges people, as he is always occupied trying to understand them. You gotta love the boy.

let me love you

Also, I really wished to know his age. Oh, well.

I feel the need of highlighting the world that Rodda created for this series. It starts small, with only the village of Rin, the bukshas’ lake and the Mountain, but keeps growing through the series, showing one more piece of it on each following book. ❤

rin maps emily rodda.JPG
The first map is the only one present on this book. The other appears only on the next volume (picture taken by me from the Brazilian edition of the third book in the series, Rowan and the Keeper of the Crystal)

Overall, I think this is an ageless book. If you like dystopian, fantasy, adventure and doesn’t care about romance, you have to board my fangirling boat and read Rowan of Rin!

5star

Thank you once again for reading! ❤ Have you read any books by Emily Rodda?

A Foreign Love Affair, from Ayano Yamane

Good night, again! Can you tell that I’m full of energy on this Spring break? Haha!

Also, I’d like to start this review apologizing myself. I was trying to be a restrained reader (a.k.a. finishes a book, review, start the other). Trying being the imperative word. I went crazy over these few last days and read three manga titles and three books. Yup. I own you six reviews and I’m not counting the one that I’m trying to beginning to write. Hopefully I’ll get them all done until the end of the Easter holiday, haha!

Now, let’s quit the chat and go to real business: A Foreign Love Affair, from Ayano Yamane!

a foreign love affair.JPG
from my Instagram 😀

The Story

What would you do if you found the love of your life…

… In your first night as a married man to someone else?

That’s Japanese mob clan heir Ranmaru’s dilemma. To satisfy his father’s political wishes, he agreed to marry a girl from another clan, to forge an alliance. The problem is that they barely can stand each other and start to fight as soon as they board their honeymoon cruise to Italy.

And, on the very same night, Ranmaru leaves his spouse to literally fall in the arms of the man that would steal his heart: Italian captain Al Valentino, the embodiment of fun and sex.

An unlikely romance blossoms between them and even destiny seems to be working 24/7 to make sure that Ranmaru and All will remain together.

The big question is: will reality bless this love as well?

anigif_enhanced-buzz-5351-1389581734-11

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

If you have been here for a while, you are very sure of three things: a) I love Ava March; b) I love gay romance; c) I love manga. You may also know that I’m a giveaway rat, but never mind that. After reading Finder, also from Yamane-sensei, I knew I’d love anything that she publishes, so I started looking for more titles. A Foreign Love Affair left me besotted and wanting more, as it had the perfect bit of everything: romance, drama, comedy, hot scenes, hot males, unpredictable plot and flawless art. It would be an offense to Yamane-sensei to give this title anything less than five stars and a free-hug coupon. I also love coupons.

The narrative had a steady pace and lots of action scenes, both sheet and real action ones, haha! We follow the story mainly from Ranmaru’s point of view, but there are also glimpses on Al’s part and other minor characters, giving the reader full control of everything that was happening on the story. As a good control freak, I was very pleased with this, haha!

i like sam winchester supernatural.gif

As mentioned, the plot was completely unpredictable. I never knew what was coming next and I was biting my nails non-stop until the end, as Yamane-sensei usually has a strong drama side on her stories. I won’t say a thing more, but be prepared for a surprise. Not good, nor bad. Just a big surprise, haha!

feelings crowley supernatural.gif

The characters, along the art, are the best part in this title. Ranmaru was such an stereotype of the yakuza [a.k.a. mob] in Japan that I’d always laugh with him. He had that cluelessness and cuteness about him, I don’t know… All I know is that I can totally understand why Al was so interested in him, haha!

Oh, yes. Al…

a foreign love affair 2.PNG
Al Valentino in all his glory*

I love Italian boys. Miss Fergie says they do it better and I guess she’s right, haha! Just look at this man. I fell so hard for him that it was hard to share him with Ranmaru. Oh well. Lucky him that I can share ;D Al was the typical perfect Italian prince: rich, handsome, funny, caring and just a hint of stalker. He takes the “so beautiful it hurts” deal to a whole new level, if you catch my drift lol

hahahaha shut up adam sandler.gif

And then there is the art of Yamane-sensei.

Overall, if you like hot and involving romances, hot males, perfect art and quick reads, you have to add A Foreign Love Affair to your TBR!

That’s it, thank you for reading another fangirling review 😀

Darkness Fair, from Rachel A. Marks (The Dark Cycle #2)

Darkness Brutal & Fair REVIEW banner

Hi, there! Good night 😀 With a day of delay because my weekend was insane, I bring you the review for the second book in The Dark Cycle series, from amazing Rachel A. Marks: Darkness Fair! 😀 Just as it happened with Darkness Brutal, the first book, I received this from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review within their book review tour! Thanks again ❤

The Story

Aidan can’t complain much about life. He has a roof over his head, food on his belly, a beautiful girlfriend that he deeply loves and deeply loves him back, a legal tutor that isn’t completely nuts and real friends for the first time in his life.

Okay, maybe he is allowed to complain about his lack of a sister, who he failed to save from the demons that haunted her. Or about being dead and resurrected. Or even about having astronomically strong super powers that he can barely understand, imagine controlling. Also, he could say a thing or two about the crappy job that he has, killing demons, exorcising ghosts and stuff. Did I mention the fact that his supposed soul mate, decided by Fate, isn’t his current girlfriend?

Maybe Aidan O’Linn does have many reasons to complain.

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

THIS BOOK WAS A BLAST! It was way better than the first and I actually hugged my e-reader a few times that I sat to read it, haha! Also, I’ve read it on two days and I’m a slow reader. So yeah, it was THAT amazing. FIVE FULL STARS! And I can’t wait to read the next one ❤

The narrative style was kept in first person on this sequel, but there was a significantly change: Aidan isn’t the only narrator anymore! Now we also have Rebecca’s point of view, omg! I’m so glad that my wish of the past review for seeing more of her on this book turned into reality! ❤ I’m still stunned to see how well Marks worked with this narrative style, it is FLAWLESS! Seriously, this woman’s writing touches the heart. I couldn’t let go of this for the life of me!

i'm reading get out of my room
my two days with Darkness Fair lol

The plot was just as complex as the last one, as now Aidan had to save Ava on a whole new level. Also, we get to interact more with Rebecca’s side, so more people for us to worry about, haha! I was caught by surprise so many times that it is pointless to count. Seriously, this book was so good…

perfection

Now, the characters. I already loved Aidan and Rebecca and really wanted to see them together – I still hate Kara, by the way – but something changed on Darkness Fair. Suddenly I loved Connor and he seemed way cooler for Rebecca and now I think Aidan would be awesome with Raul… MIND-BLOWING!

this is weird

Seriously, Marks made me change my mind on how to pair my couples. That had NEVER EVER happened before! EVER!

like ever

I’m still trying to figure out how she did this to me, so let’s keep going. I love how I still suspect so many characters after knowing them for two whole books. I still don’t trust Sid or Holly or Jax or even Ava! GOSH!

A huge strong point for me on this book was Aidan and Kara’s sex scenes. Do you want to know why? Because I didn’t see them. Yes, you read it correctly. Marks didn’t throw a sex scene on my face just because it was the natural course of the evolution of their relationship. Why, do you ask? Because it wasn’t relevant! MARKS, I LOVE YOU!

let me love you

Okay, I’m as normal as I can get again.

Overall, I can’t believe the third book is not out yet BECAUSE I NEED TO READ IT! And if you enjoy ghosts, demons, hot males with super powers, complex plots and beautiful writing, you should grab Darkness Brutal and Darkness Fair and jump on my boat, haha!

5star

That’s it, thank you for reading! And, of course, thank you again to YA Bound Book Tours team for sending me those wonderful books and thank you, Rachel, for writing as you do ❤

Darkness Brutal, from Rachel A. Marks (The Dark Cycle #1)

Darkness Brutal & Fair REVIEW banner.jpg

Hi, there! It’s time for a book review once again! I know I have been slow, I’m so sorry! This travelling business just kicked me hard, haha! I’m so late with my reviews that I could cry.

Anyway, today’s review is very special, as it is the first one done for a blog tour! *–* Through YA Bound Book Tours, I had the pleasure of receiving a copy of Darkness Brutal, the first book in The Dark Cycle series, from Rachel A. Marks, in exchange for an honest review! Thank you so much to both YA Bound Book Tours and Rachel for the kindness and trust 😀 The moment arrived, let’s go!

from my Instagram 😀

The Story

Normal is a word that doesn’t exist on Aidan O’Linn’s dictionary. Normal was never a part of his life, as the now orphan son of a dark witch and big brother to a little girl marked by demons. Aidan himself was never normal himself, as he always saw much more than he should.

And if you think that seeing ghosts, spirits, demons and angels isn’t bad enough, let me tell you that Aidan can also touch them all on the other world in which they habit.

Taking this all into consideration, you could never say that Aidan’s life is easy, but it always gets worse near Ava’s birthday. Every three years since his sister’s third birthday, her own powers get out of control and awful things happen. But this year, Aidan is sure that he can stop her, that he can help Ava to control the turmoil that is coming.

And if what it takes to keep Ava safe is to live in a house with seven strangers, all equipped with weird abilities as Aidan’s, and to be constantly divided by the need to safe two very different girls from similar problems, then so be it.

You know, assuming that Kara and Rebecca won’t take his sanity away.

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

As soon as I read the original Goodreads’ blurb for this book, I knew I had to read it. I knew I’d fall in love with Aidan and his world. And I did ❤ Aidan was such a gentleman all the time! Really, how can someone be an ass and still be cool?? Another bookish boyfriend added to my list, haha! My only real problem with this book was its oh-so slow pace. I felt like I’d read and read and I still wouldn’t get anywhere near any answer, just like poor Aidan. I know that, as a first book to a series with a partial dystopian world, tons of explanations were necessary, but I still think that we could take off something like 100 pages. And that is the only flaw on this marvelous 4 stars book ❤

The narrative style was first person styled and always from Aidan’s perspective. This is not my favorite kind, but oh boy, how refreshing it was to see the YA world through the eyes of a boy! I think I was in sore need of a change of scenarios in YA books, haha! Also, the first person worked well for this narrative and to keep the mysteries of the plot. I loved Aidan despite not really connecting with him, so I can’t complain about the narrative, haha! Moreover, I have a feeling that I’ll fall even harder for this series in book two, as I already saw that Aidan will share the spotlight as narrator 😀 So far, only Rebecca’s point of view was revealed, but I’m only on chapter 8 as I write this review. What do I know, right? Hahaha!

The plot was brilliant. It was complex, hard and very well executed. Marks could have been less wordy on many parts, but her writing was so good and fluid that I didn’t got tired of the book even at its best dragging points, haha! I literally didn’t know on who I could trust and, sometimes, I even doubted Aidan, our cute narrator. This was such a marvelous experience!

tumblr_inline_mke0tjxooR1rqh8d0

No need to call the paramedics, I’m under control again. For now.

The characters are the strongest point on this book. I really want to attack hug Aidan. He is so blasé about life and his own powers, but without being snob about it, you know? He just doesn’t think it is that big of a deal, haha! Come on, everybody can exorcize a demon just by looking at its eyes and praying. Can’t you?! By the way, Aidan is a very selfless person in general. His life revolves around Ava and his mission to protect her. He’s a true guardian, as he doesn’t give a damn to what happens with himself, as long as Ava is okay. It is beautiful ❤

como here let me just hold you

I liked almost all characters, to be honest. In construction matters, they all are living art. I love real and down to earth characters, specially in YA novels. We are in need of more real people in this genre, haha! My favorite side characters would be Connor, Fingers and Rebecca. We have a ~kind of~ amorous triangle involving Aidan, Rebecca and Kara, by the way. I’m completely team Rebecca, so I don’t like Kara on a woman level? Hahaha!

boo you whore
me with Kara lol

Okay, I won’t be that unfair. Kara is an awesome girl and she seriously kicks asses in this book. I just was bothered by how much she could screw something when she did. Karas is not the kind of person that makes small mistakes. She always destroys the whole thing, haha! And Rebecca barely had a relevant part on this book – something that I already feel that is changing on the second book – for me to say that she was a heroine. I just hit it off with her and didn’t with Kara 🙂

bitches be crazy

Dr. Cooper’s endless wisdom aside, I also need to comment on Sid. I have read a whole book and I still haven’t decide whether this guys is good or bad news. Seriously, I’m in love with this perspective, with the not knowing ❤

Another strong point in this book is how Marks treated religious elements: as elements. It may sound stupid or even a bit odd, but I hate books that disguise the author’s religious beliefs and try to indoctrinate the reader between the lines. Marks didn’t do such a thing, just played with elements from the Christian religion and created something wonderful. Like what Supernatural does, you know? Seriously, Marks rocked!

And can we please take a moment to appreciate this wonderful and perfect cover?

darkness brutal 2.JPG

Seriously, it took my breath away ❤

Overall, if you enjoy supernatural/paranormal books, hot male protagonists, time-travelling and teen republics, this book is for you!

4star

That’s it, thank you for reading! Also, thanks once again to YA Bound Book Tours for providing me with both Darkness Brutal and Darkness Fair ebook copies! 😀 Stay tuned, the review for Darkness Fair shall be up by Sunday 😀

Carry On, from Rainbow Rowell

Hello, my dears. Today I’m finally talking about Carry On, from Rainbow Rowell. I know this review is so late, but honestly, it will be one of the most difficult ones that I have ever wrote. Brace yourselves and tighten your seatbelts. Let the emotional rollercoaster begin.

IMG_8230.JPG
from my Instagram

The Story

Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One of the entire history of Chosen Ones. Wizard with awesome powers? Check. Ass kick fighting techniques? Check. Decent looks? Check. Total control over his actions, words and powers? Not at all. And his problems ironically only increase when his arch-enemy (and roommate) Baz doesn’t show up at Watford after the Summer break. Why can’t Baz just end his suffering by coming back to their freaking last year at school?

Baz is the worst vampire of the entire history of vampires. Blood thirst? Check. Handsome as hell? Check. Intelligent and high-cultured? Check. Big bag fangs? Check. Total knowledge about his powers, nature and destiny? Not at all. And sharing the room with his arch-enemy Simon Snow only increases his problems, as Baz can’t take his thoughts of Simon. Why couldn’t Simon just shut up and kiss him already?

Heated feelings, old grudges, first loves and magic. So much magic. That’s Carry On.

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

This book.

If you follow me for a while, you may know that I have been on Jen’s place at my hometown and that I finished Carry On in the beginning of last week. You even may know how much I freaked out about Gifted Thief (and I still do, Honour Bound is my next read after The Dark Cycle series!). But nothing prepared me for what Carry On was really about. Since I’ve read Fangirl, I was dreaming of reading Carry On, to be a part of Simon and Baz’s world. I make no secret of how much I enjoy gay romances and Carry On had everything to be the most perfect book ever.

And it was.

And I think I’ll never recover from its perfection.

tumblr dean crying 1

I seriously can’t remember when was the last time that a book grabbed my heart and squeezed so hard that I couldn’t even breath without it on my hands (okay, I’m lying, it was on 2013 when Ava sent me an ARC of All In With The Duke and I almost died). I actually hugged Carry On every time I got to read it.

I never wanted to let it go after finishing.

damon crying 1

I’m so sorry this review is being overly melodramatic, but I was a mess. I couldn’t believe that I had reached the end and that this was such a perfect book. It was my first time crying over a perfect and happy end and I scared the hell out of my friends and family, to the point that my dad had to say that I would meet other books that would make me fall in love again. My rating? Infinite stars.

Okay, five because Goodreads won’t allow me to rate any higher.

The narrative style is first person with switching points of view. Seriously, almost every relevant character gets their time at narrating and you could always tell who was speaking even without Rowell’s labels – yes, there are labels, don’t worry. Needless to say that my favorite narrators were Simon and Baz, right? Hahaha. Other nice thing is that Rowell would do a chapter with some lines, then switch narrators in the middle of the chapter just to write one sentence or simply throw pieces of points of view from random characters that we would understand only at the end of the book. I’m not the biggest fan of first person narrated books, but this is how you KICK ASS doing it. I didn’t care at all for Agatha and I still had not a single problem reading her parts. Seriously. This is perfection.

let me love you

Okay, I’m okay. Moving on.

The plot was awesome. Simple and involving, with the right amount of romance, mystery, magic, friendship and drama. I missed more adventurous moves on Baz’s part regarding Simon and the fact that they shared a room at Baz’s manor, but I’ll survive. This is one of that boring kinds of review, in which you are so besotted with the book that you just can’t see its flaws.

Okay, I see them. There are many loose ends. Seriously. Not for the reader, but for the characters. We discover things, they don’t. As I’m a really selfish person (?), I’m okay with the characters not knowing it all if I do, so I’m cool with it. Hm, maybe that’s the problem. I fell so hard in love with Carry On that I love even its flaws.

the earth is doomed

Now the characters. As I may have already said on Fangirl’s review, Rowell’s characters are all girls and boys next door. Even if they are heroes, vampires, ghosts or anything else. I saw myself in Penny, Baz, Simon and even a little on Agatha, who I still don’t care about. This is witchcraft, Rowell. How do you make me like even the characters that I hate? Hahaha

I guess what pleased me the most were Baz and Simon’s flaws, to be honest. They made them too real. I remember when we fell too deep to feel, I remember when the real became too real, I remember when it hurt too much to heal and everything.

70740-hilary-duff-da-varios-matchs-no-600x315-1
Hilary Duff feelings, yes.

I don’t think I have anything really useful to say beyond this. They are real people living a romance and I was a crazy fangirl all the while. I’m sorry, I know I’m being really lame and lengthy on this review.

I saw many people complain about how Carry On was overly inspired on Harry Potter, among other young adult books, but this also didn’t bother me. I actually smiled every time I got a reference in the air. I felt like Rowell was writing Carry On just for me and those were our secrets, you know? And that was one of the stupidest things that I have ever admitted. Along with my hugging book habits above.

look i probably should sit down speech

The strongest point on Carry On is its feelings. It’s all too real, too beautiful. I seriously have not enough words to describe everything that I felt reading it, just that I was thrown on a rollercoaster and ended it hopelessly lovesick.

my heart is broken 1

Bonus point: the book’s illustrations to divide the story in parts. So cute.

Now, I’d like to share some of my favorite quotes from the book with you. And sorry if you’re my friend on Goodreads, I may have liked a million Carry On quotes today while doing this review.

Simon

“He’s looking at me as like I’m a complete freak. (Which we both already knew it was true.)”

Baz

“It’s 6A.M. and he’s [Simon] already banging around our room like a cow who accidentally wandered up here.”

“(Because I’m disturbed. Ask anyone.)”

“I’m thinking violent thoughts at you constantly.”

And this dialogue:

“What you are is a fucking tragedy, Simon Snow. You literally couldn’t be a bigger mess.”

He tries to kiss me, but I pull back- “And you like that?”

“I love it.” He says.

“Why?”

“Because we match.”

I don’t think I can endure another book hangover this strong ever again.

5star

Thank you for humoring me this far and enduring my interior and very depressed fangirl. I’m pinning badly for another Simon & Baz romance. Also, a special thank you to Jess, of the Mud and Stars, for not blocking me on Twitter after I finished Carry On; to Jenny and her mom, who had to endure a very crying me for at least two days; to Mandy, from The Reading Diaries, that had to hear me whining over this book hangover; to Lindsey from @thepagemistress, that is always there for me; and to my dad, that reminded me that I can always meet another book that will sweep me off my feet.

Convincing Leopold, from Ava March (London Legal #2)

Hi, there! Good afternoon to you 🙂 I’d like to start this post apologizing to Ava. Convincing Leopold was re-released today, so I had promised my review for Feb. 8th and failed miserably. I’m so so sorry 😦 But better a bit later than never 😉

As said once or twice, Ava is re-releasing the London Legal series and adding up a third book to it on 2016. Reviews for book one and book three are already available ❤ Both 5 stars, btw!

And yes, another Ava March book review, sorry not sorry, haha!

from my Instagram 🙂

The Story

Arthur couldn’t be happier with his lover, Leopold. Without the threat of coming home to an empty and cold apartment, Arthur is refreshed and working even harder than usual. Except that Leopold seems to be restless of late and just won’t let Arthur rest at all during the night… And not in a pleasant way.

Leopold couldn’t be happier with his lover, Arthur. Without the threat of losing him again to some other more respectable gentleman, Leopold is refreshed and sober as he never has been. Except that Arthur’s hours at the office seem to only increase and Arthur just hired a new secretary… And a beautiful man, nevertheless.

Will Arthur and Leopold work out their differences or prove that they weren’t ever suited at all?

anigif_enhanced-buzz-5351-1389581734-11

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

I like Convincing Leopold even better than Convincing Arthur. As I mentioned on the review for book one, Leopold is one of my favorite Ava March’s males. He is so exotic, beautiful and adorable, ugh! I wanna hug him.

let me love you

Ahem.

This book was a re-read and I lost count of times that I did so since buying it, so it’s another case of over analyzing something that I’m deeply familiarized with. Not a bad thing, just means that you’ll have to bear with me for a while longer, haha! This book was more dramatic than the last and left me with my heart in tiny pieces on my bedroom floor. I cried hard on the first read and, sometimes, I still do. I just can’t stand what Arthur did to Leopold. But we’ll get there. Important thing is that this book is an excellent sequel and a five stars book 🙂

The narrative in all March’s books so far is third person styled with switching points of view between the couple (a.k.a. my favorite kind), so once again we are able to see what goes on with Arthur and Leopold. And that only makes the reader’s heart more broken when they start to fall apart. You know how much they love each other and you can’t do anything to help them or assure them how perfect for each other than they are.

Honestly, you have no idea how I felt when I couldn’t show this line to Leopold:

Yet being with Thorn felt right. More than right, in fact. Thorn felt like home.

tumblr_m2j6homceD1rsbzr1o1_500

Okay, I’m okay. I think.

The plot was simple and straightforward: a couple having adjusting problems on their relationship thanks to lack of proper communication. The innovations? Arthur and Leopold are a gay couple on the Regency era, a time were you could be hanged for sodomy. And just like that, a simple plot becomes something exciting, haha! Oh, and of course that no matter the complexity of the plot if it isn’t well executed. March is my queen in plot executions ❤ (I have to say that Jacqueline E. Smith is hard competition. Maybe if Luke and Chase started a romance in Lost Souls…).

Now, let’s talk about my sweet darling Leopold. Yes, I know, there is Arthur and Jones, but they can wait, hunf. I usually like top guys best in gay couples, but Leopold just caught me hard. His subtle arrogance and insecurity did the trick, I guess. A quick quote from Arthur for you to catch my meaning:

“You do realize you are the very embodiment of temptation?”

Thorn arched a knowing brow.

Yes, of course he knew.

And Leopold is so right. #justsaying

Also, he has a condition that made me relate a lot with him. I already experienced similar crisis and there is nothing you can do besides waiting for it to pass. He said himself that two days in bed weren’t that bad and he was right. Last year, I had a break down and was abed for two weeks. I barely looked up on internet, wouldn’t personally talk to my parents or do much besides stay tucked in my bed. For two weeks, I couldn’t attend my college classes or get out of my bedroom at all. Add this to the knowledge that Arthur was a freaking selfish bastard that couldn’t bother to just be honest with Leopold and then you have all my reasons to like Leopold better, haha!

However, of course, I have to give Arthur credit. In the moment he realized how big of a mess he had made, he chased after Leopold like a blind hellhound. That was really cute. And creepy.

Once again, I was captured by March’s beautiful way of building and portraying of a relationship trying to work. Convincing Leopold is all about how communication is vital for a health commitment. And all about how perfect Leopold and Arthur are for each other ❤

To close the characters’ section, I’d like to acknowledge Jones, Leopold’s butler. His devotion and loyalty to Leopold were touching, especially on a time were employees were almost slaves on the hands of the royal and the wealth. I wanted to hug him too, haha!

As always, I can’t treat March’s sex scenes as a bonus point, as they are present on ever book that she writes please never change and they are always smoking hot. I will say this on every single review: March knows her business. I still get impressed with the overflow of feeling during her character’s most intimate moments. They may be mad at each other or just not care at all for each other, but when it comes to the bed, you feel that there is nothing outside in the world besides them and their play. This is magical. I think it’s fair enough to say that all March’s characters make love ❤

its so beautiful

Of course, I also need to express how much I loved the new cover! I have the old edition and trust me, this one is way better ❤

25071479

Overall, this book made me laugh, made me cry and made me love Leopold even more ❤ This is one of the best sequels that I have read and I don’t think I’ll even stop re-reading this book.

5star

That’s it, thank you for bearing with me! The best part is that you can read an excerpt of Convincing Leopold here and find the ebook on the usual places:
