My Review:

I adore this series and I'm so glad it's still living up to my expectations from the first time I read it. This time around the secondary characters left a big impression on me. I especially liked Vlad in this book (too bad his series made me despise him).

I love Cat. She's stubborn, protective of what's hers and a kick*ss fighter. Her relationship with Bones' can get rocky at times, but she doesn't back down easily or martyr herself. I like how she's grown and evolved from the first book when she used to go to a bar to seduce and stake a vampire a night.

I like Bones overall, but he can come off as too overprotective in quite a few situations. That's not what I would consider a quality and it sometimes annoys me to no end. Other than that, I like how he's brutally honest especially when it comes to making difficult decisions.

I consider this series to be a classic in the vampire genre. If you like vampires (that don't shine) with a dash of romance and gore, I recommend this series to the ends of the earth and back.

The Audio Book:

I liked everything about this book except Bones' voice. It's not at all what I first imagined when I first read these books (before the audio books released). My gripe with his voice is the overall pitch. I've never met a guy that spoke in that high of a pitch. Other than that, the narration was awesome.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In Reading

Hiya My Little Predators!!

Welcome back to:
A weekly feature created By The Broke And The Bookish
Currently featured on That Artsy Reader Girl

This Week's Topic:
Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer
Interested In Reading

1. The Hunger Games Series By Suzanne Collins
I liked the movies but not enough to want to get invested in the book series. I like dystopian books, but the Hunger Games doesn't really appeal to me.

2. Harry Potter Series By J. K. Rowling
I never hopped on the J. K. Rowling train and it wasn't for lack of trying. I've watched all the Harry Potter movies and they were nice enough. I tried pushing my way through the first book and ended up lasting until the middle of the book and gave up. This brings me to the next book on this list ...

3. Fantastic Beast And Where to Find Them By J. K. Rowling
I've watched the first 40 or so minutes of the movie and that was enough for me to say "never again". Books by this author simply don't appeal to me. It's about time I just accept it.

4. Percy Jackson Series By Rick Riordan
This is almost the same story as my Harry Potter dilemma. I tried to read the books before the movie was even announced and I didn't make it very far into it. The difference between this and Harry Potter was that I actually remember liking the first movie. 

5. The Chronicles of Naria By C. S. Lewis
I loved the first two movies and because of them I've never read the books. It's a weird decision, but I don't want to end up not liking the movie if the book paints a better picture.

Which books have you decided not to read?

Gaslight
(Crossbreed #4)

But when their plan backfires, Raven’s world is thrown into chaos, and Christian’s loyalty is put to the ultimate test.

Buried secrets come to light, and the only thing keeping Raven grounded is her insatiable thirst for vengeance. The stakes are high as they travel to a place where the landscapes are as treacherous as the immortals that live there. This time, there’s no room for mistakes.

Will Raven have the courage to tame the violence in her heart before it swallows her whole?

My Ramblings: TV Shows That Broke My Heart


To celebrate Valentine's Day Week let's discuss:
TV Shows That Broke My Heart

* If you haven't watched any of the series mentioned below beware of spoilers.


The Blacklist

Everything that went down in Season 5 Episode 8. It's a major spoiler and I would prefer to not give it away, but it has to do with Tom Keen. That was the first time in a long time that a tv show made me tear up. I'm still scarred because of that episode.
| IMDb |


House M.D.

The ending was sweet, yet painfully sad. That broke me in ways I may never recover from. This series is quite old, so beware of the next sentence (SPOILER): What a sad existence it must be just waiting for the day death takes your best friend while you're considered to be dead. It was a great ending for House as a character, but my heart still aches for that to not be true.
| IMDb |


Vampire Diaries

I don't remember in which season this happened because it's been a while since I've watched it, but the first time Jeremy died and Elena burned down the house was sob-inducing. That was one of the first times I legitimately liked a character and had to watch them die.
| IMDb |


Supernatural

I like Supernatural even though it's seen its better days, in my opinion. This series has been a roller coaster for me. There were definitely a lot of omg-what's-going-to-happen-next-and-now-I-have-to-wait-8-months for the next season to figure it out throughout their 12+ seasons. Let me be honest, the brotherly moments always bring me back.
