The Conjuring (Movie Review)

First off, Happy Hallow-Freaking-Ween, awesome nerds! Tell me what you guys are up to for tonight or just in general for this weekend!
Release Date: July 19, 2013
Genre: Horror
In 1970, paranormal investigators and demonologists Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) and Ed (Patrick Wilson) Warren are summoned to the home of Carolyn (Lili Taylor) and Roger (Ron Livingston) Perron. The Perrons and their five daughters have recently moved into a secluded farmhouse, where a supernatural presence has made itself known. Though the manifestations are relatively benign at first, events soon escalate in horrifying fashion, especially after the Warrens discover the house's macabre history.

Damn... This movie was so intense that my heart dropped in my stomach every single time that I watch this movie. Thankfully, it was with family members who like to joke about malevolent spirits and just dreadful stuff so we could never take this seriously. 

But even after you turn the lights on for The Conjuring, it will have you haunted by the images that played on the screen. Since this was my second time watching the movie, I knew when to scare the shit out of everyone because in regards to the fun of Halloween. 

Scary movies with the family is impossible to turn down and if you ever meet us, well, you will be changed forever. Just kidding. My family isn't that bad.

Anyways, this movie was actually quite terrifying and it's not because of what happens in the movie, although heart-dropping, but the story of Ed and Lorraine. Their family encounters some of the most horrific things and sadly, as does their daughter. As a kid, anything like this would be traumatizing to watch the ending of The Conjuring would make me not want to hug or kiss my mother after what I had seen.

Another thing is that the actual history of this house makes me jump in my skin every single time. If you do your history on the background story of this movie, it definitely will having you watching your back as you feel someone watching you or just question everything.

I am going to rate this book a solid 5 out of 5 stars. I would rate it higher but that's impossible. I think that this movie is a must-watch especially if you are a horror movie buff. I can't live through scary moments but I can handle a few scary movies, here and there.

A giveaway is happening until November 1, 2015 at 12:00AM MST for the awesome book, Sharon M. Johnston's Divided. Here is the Rafflecopter information:

Enter and I will pick a random winner on November 1, 2015.

Paranormal Activity : The Ghost Dimension (Movie Review)

I came to this movie, bought the damn ticket just to see the ending and final conclusion to the Paranormal Activity series because I figured that somewhere along the way, they would need to stop making these eventually. But no. No. They remake them with the same goddamn plot line and it will make you want to bash your head into your chair multiple times. 

If you're looking for a conclusion, don't waste your money. You'll just be having a couple jump scares here and there and honestly, it's not worth it. Like, "OHHHH SNAP! There is Tobi's legs! Oh crap! He did it again!"Come on... If you're going to make a movie that is supposed to be truly terrifying, go out with a damn bang. 

Release Date: October 23, 2015
Genre: Horror
Ryan Fleege (Chris J. Murray), his wife Emily (Brit Shaw) and their 7-year-old daughter Leila (Ivy George) are preparing for Christmas in their new home. After discovering an old-school camcorder in the garage, Ryan quickly learns that it can record strange apparitions that are invisible to the naked eye. When young Leila starts talking to an imaginary friend and displaying strange behavior, the couple soon find themselves in a terrifying battle with a supernatural force.
The ending really, really, REALLY disappointed me... Well the whole movie did but mainly the ending. It's like putting Poltergeist with Grave Encounters... Like, there is no such thing as original. It pans out the exact same story as it happened in every other damn Paranormal Activity. DO NOT MAKE ANOTHER ONE! You'll just disappoint people even further.

Shh... Sh... SHHH. Don't try to argue that it was a good movie.

That little girl though, she needs some Jesus in her life... Or some Prozac. But the ending... It made me want to just get up and leave the theatre and throw a huge tantrum. Like, are you kidding me?

Generous enough, I will rate this a 2.5 out of 5 stars. This is being nice.

Anyways, I will blog you guys later, awesome nerds.

What's On My Shelf?

You know, being busy with school and everything really sucks because it takes me away from my precious reading time. I'll fit it whenever I can and since I am not able to provide a review, I just wanted to share what is on my TBR (To-Be Read List) so that I am making little posts here and there.

On November 10, 2015, an ARC review will be coming out for Cecilia Tan's Daron's Guitar Chronicles: Volume Eight. Mind you this, I haven't read #1-7 so I am a bit puzzled while trying to figure what the relationships of the characters are. Although I am only on like chapter 4, I like the twist of the fact that it's more focused on LGBTQ relationships rather than heterosexuals so it was a bit shocking but it gave me a breather. 

I'm going to stop sharing about that because you'll hear all about it on my assigned ARC date.

But check out the cover and synopsis here:
Release Date: November 10, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Synopsis: The year is 1990 and Daron Marks is trying to stay true to his heart. 

But life is tough when you're a talented musician whose life is controlled by gigantic mega-corporations. Daron is trying hard not to think about that, though, when he invites Ziggy to spend Christmas with Daron's chosen family: his mentor Remo and the guys from the band Nomad. Ziggy's career is taking off at rocket speed; meanwhile Daron spends a few months living in New York City working with one of the music industry's hottest producers and then takes a gig to hit the road with Nomad. Even with the industry pulling them in different directions, Daron and Ziggy's paths keep crossing. Can they rebuild a relationship without music tying them together? And what is that mysterious song Daron keeps hearing on the radio? 

Volume 8 cover chapters 585 through 636 of the online web serial. 

Now some of my personal favorite authors, Cassandra Clare and Jessica L. Brooks are on my shelf as well with Clockwork Prince, Clockwork Princess, City of Lost Souls, and Open Thy Heart.

I also have Rowena Tisdale's Awake in a Sweet Unrest but I haven't been able to start it even though I have been itching to start it as well as Nikki Jefford's Whiteout

I am also lucky to have so many book fans within my family that we can exchange and recommend books to each other. Such as one of my awesome cousins gave me The Indigo Spell and Beastly. I saw the movie for Beastly and needless to say that as much as Vanessa Hudgens is an awesome person, she just ruined the movie... Stick with music related ones please because your voice is amazing.

Mind you this, on my Kindle shelf... Let's just say that the amount of books that I 1-clicked is a bit out of hand... St-- Actually, don't stop with the free books. ;)

Let's just say, tomorrow, after some Halloween costume shopping, I am going to be going to get caffeinated and just read... After some homework of course but not if I finish everything tonight. Let's pull an all nighter!

Anyways, that's what's on my shelf for right now everyone. Like I said, school is literally kicking my ass and as much as I would rather quit school and just read and blog, I can't. I need at least some type of a degree.

At Any Price - Brenna Aubrey (Gaming the System #1)

Published Date: December 9, 2013
Genre: Contemporary Romance/New Adult
Synopsis: Achievement Unlocked: Geek Virgin

When Mia Strong, proud geek-girl and popular gaming blogger, auctions off her virginity online, she knows she'll make waves. But what she will not be making is a love connection. Her rules are set in stone: One night. No further contact.

It's a desperate step, but it's the only way she can go to medical school and pay her mother's mounting hospital bills.

Difficulty Level: Millionaire CEO 

Adam Drake, the enigmatic auction winner, is a software prodigy who made his first million at seventeen. Now, in his mid-twenties, he's sexy, driven and--as CEO of his own gaming company--he's used to making the rules. Before Mia knows what's happening, he's found the loophole in the rules of her auction. Every stipulation she's made to protect her heart gets tossed by the wayside.

She can't tell if he's playing her...or if he's playing for keeps.

This New Adult book is intended for readers over the age of 18 due to adult language, sexual content and adult situations.

I was pleasantly pleased with this book for a romance/new adult book because I mean, it's hard to find a good romance without feeling disgusted at every turn. I read Fifty Shades of Grey and that is definitely getting pushed down to like number 10 of my favorite romances because this one came on the list. 

I mean, I read this in a day and I really haven't done that for romances before. Of course I had to divide it up due to school but I mean Adam Drake is a hot nerd who meets gaming, beautiful, blogger, Mia.

If I am being honest, it's almost like gaming nerd meets Fifty Shades of Grey because strangely there are some parts that remind me of Fifty Shades minus the BDSM. You feel? It's just vanilla but I mean, it's rich,  self-made millionaire meets innocent girl who turns out to be a virgin, who in turns goes against himself to save her purity and ends up only having vanilla with her. In the end of the book, he ends up hurting her so she runs away to her mom... Sound familiar? Thought so. 

Lots of twists and turns that will have you on your toes and want to refuse sleep because you want to finish this book. I will definitely want to read the next few books in the series and again, if you liked Fifty Shades or at least tolerated it, you will love the romance within the book because you're meeting a completely spunky girl that will make you laugh with her attitude.

After this, you'll want to put Adam Drake on your book boyfriends list.

I am going to rate this a good 4.5 out of 5 stars. Read this and you will understand why I feel the way I do.

ARC: The Boss's Daughter - Aubrey Parker (Inferno Fall #1)

ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review
Release Date: October 27, 2015
Genre: Young Adult/Contemporary Romance
Synopsis: The first book in the Inferno Falls series, from your new favorite romance author.

Ever since losing her mother as a girl, Riley James has lived for her father, Mason. The loss has nearly consumed them both, and they’ve only survived it together. But while Mason is moving into his twilight years, Riley is still young and ready for her life to begin. Her father’s shared grief — once the warm embrace she needed — now feels like a set of shackles that are starting to chafe.

Brandon Grant is smack dab in the middle of his life’s best years. So far they’ve been devoted to the construction company where he’s dedicated the last several years. A product of the foster care system, Brandon comes from a dark enough past that he can never let anyone get too close — except his boss, Mason James, who steps into the void his father was never there to fill. After years of back breaking work, Brandon is finally about to land the promotion he’s always wanted. Soon, he’ll finally start living for himself, and find someone to share in the happiness he’s sure to earn … eventually.

But love can’t always wait …

Just as Brandon is being groomed for the position, he meets the sweetest, most charming, and electrifying girl he’s ever seen — and realizes, with the crushing, sinking knowledge that she’s Riley James, the boss’s daughter.

While Riley might be ready to move on, her father can’t, and he makes it abundantly clear that Brandon’s not to go near her. As he spends more and more time in the office, preparing to become the company’s big man, he clocks more time with Riley. Soon, their spark ignites to inferno.

Riley and Brandon must decide if their happiness still means what they’ve always thought, or if they’ve finally found the person who can turn their lives into something more.

Dive heart-first into Inferno Falls’ romantic firestorm with the first novel in this thrilling new series. Download The Boss’s Daughter NOW!

Yeah, yeah, that's a long ass synopsis and long ass genre. Well here is my honest review. I think that this book has a lot of potential to become a best seller. It's not overly graphic but it could have a little more detail.

Riley, the boss's daughter, is coming home from college and very close with her father because of the fact that she lost her mother at such a young age. Brandon, a hard-worker and reaching for the best as well as being a caretaker for his sister, Bridget. By the 20th-something chapter, their sexual tension is finally relieved and now, cue the dick-ness from Brandon because obviously nothing can happen between the boss's prodigy and the boss's daughter.

This quote really bothered me because it seemed a bit contradicting for me... "I leave the truck running just in case the battery decides to I make sure to lock the doors and hang onto the key..."

If I am not mistaken... I think the key is needed inside the ignition to keep it running, yes?

Anyways, that rant is over.

Well now that I finished the book, the above quote just needs to add that he took his APARTMENT key inside, not the car key. But you know, semantics. Aubrey Parker has a lot going for her with these series, definitely add in more detail. I don't know if I would consider this a New Adult book although there are some disruptions that make me want to put that in the genre.

You will constantly want to smack your head against the table because of the fact that even though Riley wants to be noticed for how smart she is not for who she is, she sure doesn't act like it by acting bratty towards Brandon. Maybe that is why he thought she was so attractive was because she put up a fight with him. As his sister said, 'You guys are just like kids'.

Honestly, I will rate this a 3.2 out of 5 stars. I can sense a lot of potential in Aubrey Parker and the Inferno Fall series so I will definitely read the next two in the series.

City of Fallen Angels - Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments #4)

Oh my, oh my, oh my!

Cassandra Clare never seems to fail me for my fill of hot guys, the action, romance, and thrillers. Because I mean, who doesn't want those things?

So I will be completely honest. I was a bit bored with this book because I mean, there wasn't a whole lot of new things. Like yes, Clary will never leave Jace's side as Simon would never leave Clary's. Simon is working his vampire mojo on women/girls a.k.a. Maia and Isabelle. Shocking... Not really. 

A new character is introduced and he sounds attractive as hell and a shocking twist or twists are revealed from this character and from some of the main characters. I believe that majority of the book is in Simon's perspective but it is kind of confusing when the only thing dividing the perspectives is paragraphs. 

Published Date: April 5, 2011
Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy
Synopsis: The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She’s training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And—most importantly of all—she can finally call Jace her boyfriend.

But nothing comes without a price.

Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second, bloody war. Clary’s best friend, Simon, can’t help her—his mother just found out that he’s a vampire, and now he’s homeless. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace.

The stakes are higher than ever in the #1 New York Times bestselling fourth installment of the Mortal Instruments series.

I mean, this book was good. Don't get me wrong. It was very slow at first and what happened i the first three books, pretty much happened in this one too. Yet, I was still shocked at some of the new minor characters in this book and now that I know who Camille is... She's sabotages people's relationship, ahem, COUGH COUGH, Magnus's. 

I am going to go ahead and rate this book a solid 4 out of 5 stars because I think that everyone should read this series and this book because the ending definitely killed me. Yes. I am a blogger from beyond the grave. 

Just kidding.

Anyways, I should warn you guys that I may not be posting as much through this next month or two because of my final exams and you know how I am with school.

Clockwork Angel - Cassandra Clare (The Infernal Devices #1)

Just read this and completely fell in love.
'"One must always be careful of books," said Tessa, "and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us."' - Cassandra Clare, The Infernal Devices, Clockwork Angel

Published Date: August, 31, 2010
Genre: Fantasy/Young Adult
Synopsis: In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them...

I absolutely loved this book. This book is the vain of my ex-- Okay, maybe not that far. But Will, Tessa, and Jem are my favorite in this book, granted that they are the main characters in this book. Just seeing the love triangle develop is the cutest things of all time.

Tessa just wanted a normal life and to get reunited with her brother. She would do anything for him and if that means traveling across the seas to get to him, she would. He mysteriously sends her a ticket to come to London, England and away from New York after their aunt's passing. 

She endures months of torture from The Black Sisters and it will make your heart ache as the story goes on.

When Will and Jem come to save her from their grasps, you will just automatically want to put them on your book boyfriends list. But as you read on and if you have read the The Mortal Instrument series before the prequel of The Infernal Devices, you will automatically connect Will to Jace and Jem to Simon as well as Tessa to Clary. Somewhat. 

I am going to go ahead and rate this book a 4.7 out of 5 stars. Although there are some minor characters within, you will love them nonetheless. 

I would highly recommend this book and if you don't read it, you're certifiably insane.

'"Sometimes," Jem said, "out lives can change so fast that the change outpaces our minds and hearts. It's those times. I think, when our lives have alerted but we still long for the time before everything was altered-- that is when we feel the greatest pain. I can tell you, though, from experience, you grow accustomed to it. You learn to live your new life, and you can't imagine, or even really remember, how things were before."' - Cassandra Clare, The Infernal Devices, Clockwork Angel

Crimson Peak (Movie Review)

Release Date: October 16, 2015
Genre: Fantasy/Mystery
After marrying the charming and seductive Sir Thomas Sharpe, young Edith (Mia Wasikowska) finds herself swept away to his remote gothic mansion in the English hills. Also living there is Lady Lucille, Thomas' alluring sister and protector of her family's dark secrets. Able to communicate with the dead, Edith tries to decipher the mystery behind the ghostly visions that haunt her new home. As she comes closer to the truth, Edith may learn that true monsters are made of flesh and blood.

Young Edith is an aspiring writer who applied ghosts as symbolic meanings in her books. But no, ghosts are real. She had come to that conclusion when her mother came back to her room.

Oh did I forget to mention that her mother had died? Yeah, that is pretty damn traumatizing for a 7 year old (I think). Honestly, this movie was long and you kind of figured out what was going on by the middle of the movie. 

Horror movies should never be as predictable as this was but I was glad that they kept the sexual tensions down to a minimum and the horror, to what they could, to a maximum. Although, the director obviously shied away from wanting this movie to be labeled as a bad horror movie, this was really just full of jump scares. 

I mean, it is almost Hansel and Gretel meet incest and then spark jealousy as Sir Thomas Sharpe meets and marries Edith even though she has a perfectly good suitor in the way beginning that obviously is very interested in her.

Edith is somewhat of a strong character that you will want to watch this movie. I would not add this movie into my collection of horror or any genre for that matter but I really liked to watch this. 

I'm going to go ahead and rate it a solid 3 out of 5 stars. 

Blog you later, awesome nerds and sorry for the late post. You know, college stuff.

Bad Boy Daddy - Chance Carter

A copy was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Published Date: October 3, 2015
Genre: New Adult
Synopsis: He wanted a baby. I needed a man.


The first time I saw Jackson, I hated his guts. He was everything I could never have. Pure, panty-wetting, manhood. And I was trapped in a loveless relationship with his worst enemy. I never would have dreamed he craved my womb so badly he was willing to do anything for it.


My father's death taught me a lot of things. Most importantly, I needed a child. I had to have a son before my enemies caught up with me. So when Faith came begging for protection, I knew exactly what I wanted. I yearned for her body. Lust raged through me like a wildfire. I longed to make her pregnant with my child. I gave her an offer she couldn't refuse. A life for a life. My protection, in exchange for everything she had to offer. I'd die for her, but she would give me a son.
I took her womb. I never suspected she'd take my heart.


Let's just say that I was a bit skeptical about reading this book at first. I was more pulled in at the fact that it was a male author trying a New Adult book. 

Don't get me wrong, I love New Adult books and recently I have been into giving new authors a chance. When I spoke with Chance, it was only briefly but his book caught my attention since it was something along the lines of Rumpelstiltskin and mob life. 

My personal and honest thought was that Chance did not give his characters a chance to develop. Yes, we know Faith was considered as a one of the gang's leaders whores. She was miserable in the relationship, we understand that but we didn't even get to meet Wolf. Only heard horrid stories about him and how he was going to lock Faith away for his eyes only.

If I am going to be honest, I honestly would rate this a 2 out of 5 stars. The characters were hard to follow and honestly, twelve years is a long ass time to wait for someone and they way that got reunited was not the best way in the world because they made this muscular brute to be looking like a homeless guy. 

He takes advantage of the situation but again it was poorly developed. I wish Faith and Jackson's relationship didn't start out the way it did. Out of desperation. Faith felt merely like a whore because that's what she was to Wolf's gang. 

After 12 years, it turns out Faith and Jackson's son is undeniable brilliant and as soon as he meets Jackson, Sam is suddenly very tough.

I'm not going to lie, this book was slightly disgusting and even if I can handle New Adult romances and eroticas but this was blatantly gross but weirdly attractive as well. Only some of the parts. Like having the guy go off to protect you and his future kid. There was a part in there that made me throw my hands up in the air and say, 'HOW THE HELL DO YOU EVEN KNOW THAT?!'

What is so significant about the number 12? You'll just have to find out. In the future, please just develop your characters a bit more and if that means creating a prequel or series for the book, do it. Just do it.

Release Date: Trivium - Georgeann Swiger (Trinity of Souls #3)

ARC received from author in exchange for an honest review
Published Date: October 17, 2015
Genre: Fantasy/Young Adult
Synopsis: Cast out of Heaven and stripped of their angelic light, Anya and Micah are sent to Earth where they’re free to live as a human couple. Considering themselves lucky, they embrace the sentence as a blessing rather than a burden.
With little money and no one to turn to, they move in with an elderly woman, becoming her caregiver, and soon learn being human comes at a high price. Stuck in a world where lies, illness and dark forces surround them, their dream of finding Heaven on Earth is short lived. 
With the trials and tribulations of Heaven, Hell and Earth bearing down, they must draw on their angelic origins to fight for the love they were never supposed to have. 
Between Heaven and Hell is forbidden love.

Oh my goodness! It's here, it's here, it's here! Thank you, Georgeann Swiger for ending me an ARC of this book and I just wanted to say happy book birthday to you! The review is to come soon because I know that I will eat this book right up. I will always be in love with Anya and Micah's love story. This is truly one of my favorite love stories that I have ever laid my eyes on. 

Let's see where Earth will take them without the heavenly powers to intervene. Will their love prosper or will it fail? Will Heaven and Hell succeed in tearing the lovers apart?

This post will be updated as soon as I will finish. 

Hello, again!

Here's my review of Trivium. Anya and Micah were sent to Earth as punishment for loving each other. In the second book, we find out that Lucifer has become obsessed with Anya and wants her for his own selfish needs. But Micah refuses to let that happen even with his dying breath.

In this book, you'll follow their story as they wander the Earth in the most difficult times. From starting at the bottom of worldly problems of being broke and homeless, they start to work their way up. This is where they meet the elderly woman and rid her of her troubles and in exchange, they are offered a home and food. But of course, this story would be going nowhere without the other characters.

Again, much praise for getting me to fall in love with angels and not the bad boy fallen angels again. I really enjoyed reading the Trinity of Souls trilogy but I do hope it becomes a series because they are just that fantastic. I cannot wait to see what else Georgeann Swiger has in store for us next.

I am going to rate this a good 4.6 out of 5 stars. The only reason it is not a full 5 is because of the ending and honestly, it made me made that Micah was willing to sacrifice something special to stay within the Kingdom even if you were forgiven and given a blessing to go? Like come on...

Anya and Micah's love story will make you fall in love with love again. Please continue their story or continue with Cole or Eli, something to keep me satisfied along the way.

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.

The Girl From The Well - Rin Chupeco (The Girl From The Well #1)

This is my heebie jeebies of the year. I saw The Ring when I was about 7 or 8. I saw The Grudge when I was about 14. Dexter when I was in high school. Yes. I just binge watched these. I never knew where these stories came from but they were quite terrifying. 

Honestly, I thought I was going to be just fine and be able to handle a real-life horror movie by going to a haunted house. It wasn't alright. I have never hyperventilated in my life and nonetheless, a panic attack. When I saw the version of their Ring in the elevator get up close and personal with me, my heart plummeted to my stomach. I tripped over the steps inside the maze and I just about died every turn. 

I found myself to be a horror movie fanatic but it seems that I can't even handle being in one. I believe The Chainsaw Massacre guy felt pity for me while I was out of breath in the maze. I broke down in the middle of it and started crying.

Yes, yes... I know. Actors cannot touch you and you can't touch them. They aren't real. They can't get you. I've heard it all while my friends were comforting me. It doesn't make it any less real for my panic. So I wanted to dedicate this review to my friends who refused to leave my side even when I wanted them to go through the scarier one with clowns and shit. 
Published Date: May 1, 2015
Genre: Horror/Young Adult
Synopsis: You may think me biased, being murdered myself. But my state of being has nothing to do with the curiosity toward my own species, if we can be called such. We do not go gentle, as your poet encourages, into that good night. 

A dead girl walks the streets.

She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.

And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.

Because the boy has a terrifying secret - one that would just kill to get out. 

The Girl from the Well is A YA Horror novel pitched as "Dexter" meets "The Grudge", based on a well-loved Japanese ghost story.

Honestly, this book was not as creepy as hell as it could have been. The story behind Okiku is very tragic and it gave me more insight on the Japanese folklore. I believe that it was the cover that creeped me out more than anything else. Would I rather have not read this and wasted my time? Yeah, probably. But I need my share of here jeebies. I'm probably never going to read this again so maybe I will put it up as a giveaway or just sell it at a cheaper price...

It was supposed to be artistically written but all it did was make me bad with the formatting. The story itself is creepy but everyone had different versions throughout the book and I felt bad for the main guy. 

I thought this was going to be some kind of tragic romance but I realized how creepy it would be a for a 17 year old boy and the ghost of 300 some years to be in love. I guess it was more maternal than anything. 

I am going to go ahead and rate this a 2 out of 5 stars. The only reason it is at a 2 is because it was creepy and it is nearing Halloween which is one of my favorite holidays of the year. Technically, every holiday is my favorite because hey, no school and more reading. It's a low rating because of the writing style and made it seem very childish where I had to put the book down several times just to get my brain together again.

I can see Dexter because of the fact that she revenged her own death amongst other killers, making them suffer just as she had. I could see the Grudge and the Ring because those are the classic Japanese girls coming out of the most random shit and making you jump in the movies and killing everyone while housing malevolent spirits within themselves. I'd rather binge watch the movies once again.

Anyways, blog you later awesome book nerds.

ARC: Divided - Sharon M. Johnston (Open Heart #1)

This book was provided via e-book in exchange for an honest review by author, Sharon M. Johnston.

Sharon has provided ever so generously someone with their own copy of this book in ARC edition so you will be able to read about it before anyone else. 

Want it? Go over to both Sharon's links at Find her on: Her websiteFacebookTwitterGoodreads and like, follow, add, and whatever else you need to do and come over to my blog,Facebook, and Goodreads to do the same thing. After you finish all of that good stuff, go ahead and comment on this and I will pick a random winner with a generator. 
Author Bio:

About the author From sunny Queensland in Australia, Sharon writes weird stories and soulful contemporaries across a number of categories. Working as a PR specialist by day, in her spare time she writes, blogs, plays with her fur babies and plays computer games with her family. She's also been stalked by women wanted to know where she buys her shoes. 

Release Date: November 2015
Genre: New Adult/Romance/Sci-Fi
Synopsis: A new heart should mean new life, instead it’s a living nightmare.

Mishca Richardson’s life is at an all-time high after her heart transplant. With new boyfriend, Ryder, she has the perfect summer romance. Even the nightmares plaguing her sleep since her operation can’t dull her new dream world. 

Yet life starts to unravel when Mishca develops superhuman abilities. She does her best to hide them so as not to end up a science experiment in a lab, but she can’t ignore the strange instant attraction she experiences when she meets her university professor, Colin Reed. 

Torn between love and obsession, Mishca must unite her divided heart and decide between the two men. But when the truth about her weird powers comes to light, she’ll have a lot more to worry about than romance.

I am finally in Australia! Yes! I have been all over the world while I have never been to Australia. I have been to England with The Sweet Trilogy, I have been all over North America with a lot of book series, I have even traveled to the future. But let's focus on the now of Australia and the love of imagining their Aussie accents. Is it true you guys probably have some of the most attractive guys there?

Honestly, thank you so much to Sharon for providing me with this book. It was a fresh look on NA novels. Nothing really supernatural goes on other than the fact of the main character, Mischa, is having feelings of deja vu when she gets out of her surgery. Strange powers, new friends, even feelings of a reverse Mrs. Robinson.

I'll stop there because I think that everyone should give this book a chance before judging it. I am not going to lie, there was a part in the book that had me a bit bewildered...

Come on... Are you kidding me? Yeah, it is supposed to be a damn New Adult movie but it shouldn't have an obviously forbidden relationship in this... Don't get me wrong, I am all for romance being forbidden but this... It is wrong on levels unimaginable but still steamy... But this is a New Adult book so I guess it is kind of alright.

I am going to go ahead and rate this book a good 4.5 stars out of 5. I really enjoyed this breath of fresh air on the books that I usually read. Considering that I flew through this book has be all giddy. Sharon M. Johnston is one of the best authors that I have read from.

Again, I was scared to read her book and give an honest review because i spoke with her not only through Facebook but through email as well. She is one of the sweetest people that you can meet with. Her book is beautifully created and from what I have read, there are multiple versions of this book but I am glad this one is going to get published because it is just breathtaking even if I rolled my eyes at some parts. Not out of annoyance but rather like "Oh my god, cliché alert." Sharon did an amazing job.

Add Ryder and Colin into my book boyfriends list. Check.

In the epilogue and part of the ending... My heart not only broke but it was just honestly throbbing. 

Again, thank you Sharon for giving me a chance to read your upcoming novel and I cannot wait to read the next.

Cloven - Georgeann Swiger (Trinity of Souls #2)

This book was given to me e-book by author in exchange for an honest review and test if it may be a stand-alone.
Published Date: October 21, 2014
Genre: Fantasy/Young Adult
Synopsis: What would you do if the only things standing between you and the angel you love were another angel and the fiery pits of Hell? 

When Anya and Micah declare their love for each other, the battle for the souls of the star-crossed angels stretches across the heavens. With Heaven forbidding their love, Micah vows to protect Anya by sentencing himself to Hell. 

But Anya won’t let him go without a fight. She goes into Hell after him, only to discover an angel from Micah’s past is willing to do anything to keep Micah in Hell. 

With love and lies blinding Micah, Anya fights to get him to face his demons and return to Heaven, even if it means hearts will be broken. 

The battle for the angels begins where it left off. Between Heaven and Hell is forbidden love. 

Honestly, I don't think this book could be a stand-alone. I was so confused as to what Micah and Anya's relationship was until she got to him. Then, I was surprised... Because I was rooting for someone other than Micah.

Anya is a sweet angel that knows of no corruption. Somewhere between trying to rescue the love of her life and saving her own, she comes face-to-face with the devil. She dances with him. She tries to save him from his own evil but her words fall to no avail. So, she sings. 

As a Paschar, she heals people with the soothing singing voice that seems to numb the pain that anyone feels and puts them in a state of euphoria.

From what I have read from the second book, I am getting an uneasy feeling of familiarity. It's an exact mix of Supernatural and the Halo trilogy by Alexandra Adornetto. Find forbidden love, someone gets whisked away to the bad place, loved ones do everything in their power to save the one that was taken from them.

In this book, you'll meet another Dahlia so I don't want anyone confused with this Dahlia and The Flora series Dahlia. So we will stick with Evil and Good Dahlia. 

Quite honestly, I can see where Anya comes from about how Evil Dahlia is an evil, disgusting, incest pedophile. You get a better look as to why Simon did what he did in the first book and a deeper understanding as to why Micah hated him so much. 

After this book, I know that I want to put Sam, Micah, and Cole onto my book friends list. Anyways, I am going to rate this a good 4.6 stars out of 5 and it's only because I was disappointed with the ending... Once again but only because it ended. But we will see how I feel about Trivium once it is released.

Thank you to Georgeann Swiger with providing this book to me to review and I cannot wait to get my hands on Trivum.

Adorned - Georgeann Swiger (Trinity of Souls #1)

Published Date: March 23, 2014
Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy
Synopsis: When seventeen-year-old Anya finds out she’s going to become an angel, the rules about right and wrong change. Micah, the angelic soldier ordered to protect Anya, is determined to keep her pure for the transition from human to angel. Unwittingly, Micah becomes Anya’s greatest threat when she begins falling for her protector, a love that’s forbidden in heaven.

One of the greatest books that I have fallen in love with recently. I am always thankful for authors reaching out to me to review their books and upcoming ones. When Georgeann reached out to me and gave me a synopsis of the trilogy, i knew that I was going to be in love with the story.

Forbidden love. Check. Strong female lead. Check. Cute, new book boyfriends. Check.

Finishing this book was honestly breathtaking. I love Anya and Micah's relationship. Human emotions are almost hard to comprehend and all Anya wants is to be not bullied and just get through high school.  Kind of hard when the rumor mill is always spilling lies about you. 

When Micah is considered her foster brother because Aunt Celeste decides to take him in, he can be a bit overbearing. Same class schedule, same place to volunteer at, sleeping in the same room. it can get a bit crazy. Shits going to hit the fan when you become a bit too overbearing, Micah but you don't understand the human emotions just yet, so I guess it's alright.

Though their relationship and romance hasn't budded or bloomed just yet, you can see the underlying factors of care. The ending of the book is what killed me and I hate the fact that it happened and now I can see the resentment of Simon from Micah. Does Simon even want what is best for him? Sadly, though, the whole ending was the climax and I teared up on the train so I looked a bit crazy when I pout and tear up while staring at my phone.

I rate this book a solid 4 out of 5 stars and the review for Cloven - Georgeann Swiger will be coming out tomorrow. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
