The New Year

Wow! this time tomorrow It will be 2011.. wierd huh?
This has been one roller coaster or a year. I've meet some amazing and wonderful people and felt that sting of Love. I've cried and laughed. Got two Tattoos :D I went to Faeriecon and saw Faun live and danced my faerie heart out!
and read some amazing books, the best being: Luna, ClockWork Angel, Radiant Shadows, Wildthorn.
I had days that I hated this year, days that made me want to go insane and cry. I had days and many nights of pure unadulterated bliss and happiness and I will never forget those that brought me happiness and I will forget those that have hurt me. Its a new year coming and a new begining.
get ready for more reviews and more give aways... and maybe i'll be at BEA? Maybe.. I don't know its a possibility
I love you all!

Review of Luna by Julie Anne Peters

Luna by Julie Anne Peters
Summary from Goodreads:
For years, Regan's brother Liam has been nursing a secret. By day, he is Liam, a passably typical boy of his age; at night, he transforms himself into Luna, his true, female self. Regan loves and supports her brother and she keeps his Liam/Luna secret. Things change, though, when Luna decides to emerge from her cocoon. She begins dressing like a girl in public; first at the mall; then at school; then at home. Regan worries that her brother's transgender identity is threatening her own slippery hold on normalcy. This serious, powerful teen novel was a National Book Award finalist for Young People's Literature


This is another one of those book that I have read before but wasn't paying attention to the first time.This time I really paid attention to what was going on and in that I found a beautiful, although sad story. We all know what its like wanting to be someone else, me personally I sometimes can't stand ME. The person I am and sometimes you/I wish I could jump forward and become that person I want. But for Liam its not so simple. His struggles seen through Regan's eyes is sad and heart breaking. I wonder how the book would have been if it had been from his point of view? what would his thoughts have been like? was he crushing on anyone? and what happens to him after he leaves? I don't normally cry in books but I did twice in this. In the story there are many flash backs of Regan and Liam and in this one they are at a pool part. Liam gets upset that he has a penis and begs one of Regan's friends to "take it off". His mother takes him away and soon its obvious that he literally tried to "take it off" and is rushed to the hospital. I cried here because how do you change you when the you, you want to be is another gender? when at such a young age you realize you aren't this person that you were born wrong? The other time was at the end when Liam now Luna leaves. Seeing that closeness between Luna and Regan and how they truelly are devoted to each other was heart warming but I felt sad that Luna had to leave. Even though she would be better off. I felt this story is one of the strongest and best book in YA literature. Its a must read book, doesn't matter if your Trans, Gay, Bi, Lesbian, Straight, or A-sexual you should accept a person as they are and love them no matter what your views are.

Last Sacrifice Review

Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead
Good Reads Summary:
Rose Hathaway has always played by her own rules.

She broke the law when she ran away from St. Vladimir’s Academy with her best friend and last surviving Dragomir Princess, Lissa. She broke the law when she fell in love with her gorgeous, off-limits instructor, Dimitri. And she dared to defy Queen Tatiana, leader of the Moroi world, risking her life and reputation to protect generations of dhampir guardian to come.

Now the law has finally caught up with Rose- for a crime she didn’t even commit. She’s in prison for the highest offense imaginable: the assassination of a monarch. She’ll need help from both Dimitri and Adrian to find the one living person who can stall her execution and force the Moroi elite to acknowledge a shocking new candidate for the royal throne: Vasilisa Dragomir.

But the clock on Rose’s life is running out. Rose knows in her heart the world of the dead wants her back… and this time she is truly out of second chances. The big question is, when your life is about saving others, who will save you?

Review: I have recently remembered my love for this series and Last Sacrifice devlivered yet again. I loved the entire book. It was a roller coaster of emotions; some that made me laugh, cry, and want to scream "WTF" I won't spoil anything for anyone but finding out who killed the Queen was a major shock to me, I did not see that one coming. Dimitri was as Bad Ass sex god as ever and made me love him even more. I felt bad for Adrian though, he didn't deserve that :(
over all it was a great book and I can't wait for the spin off series with Jill

Teaser Tuesday (Last Sacrifice) and Review (Wildthorn)

Teaser Tuesday: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

"This," said Adrian, "is going to be delightful" - page 228

Review: Wildthorn by Jane Eagland
Seventeen-year-old Louisa Cosgrove longs to break free from her respectable life as a Victorian doctor's daughter. But her dreams become a nightmare when Louisa is sent to Wildthorn Hall: labeled a lunatic, deprived of her liberty and even her real name. As she unravels the betrayals that led to her incarceration, she realizes there are many kinds of prison. She must be honest with herself - and others - in order to be set free. And love may be the key

- I got this book as a gift from and friend and it was one of the first books I have been able to finish in a while. This is a book that every woman needs to read. We seem to take for granted the freedom us women have in today's world. Especially in America. We can become doctors, lawyers, jobs that were previously "male" jobs. We don't have to fear being locked away in an asylum and called crazy because we read books. Louisa was a strong character that I came to love and respect. She was able to stay strong and hold on in even the most hellish of situations. The bathroom scene made me sick. One other thing I liked was that we Louisa's sexuality is shown but its not made into a big deal, its just shown as who she is and that she isn't crazy because she feels this way about Eliza. This book might have gone into my top three favorite books, Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr being number one.
