Review: By The Time You Read This I'll Be Dead

Daelyn Rice is broken beyond repair, and after a string of botched suicide attempts, she’s determined to get her death right. She starts visiting a website for “completers”— www.through-the-light .com.

While she’s on the site, Daelyn blogs about her life, uncovering a history of bullying that goes back to kindergarten. When she’s not on the Web, Daelyn’s at her private school, where she’s known as the freak who doesn’t talk.

Then, a boy named Santana begins to sit with her after school while she’s waiting to for her parents to pick her up. Even though she’s made it clear that she wants to be left alone, Santana won’t give up. And it’s too late for Daelyn to be letting people into her life…isn’t it?

National Book Award finalist Julie Anne Peters shines a light on how bullying can push young people to the very edge.

Suicide is one of the hardest subject to talk about for any person. I have known and spoken to people who have contemplated suicide, even I have had such thoughts. I can bet that half of us, whether we know it or not, know someone who has thought about suicide. Suicide is never the answer but that period of time where you feel like death is the only answer is something that can dig into your brain and take a hold of you. I speak from experience when I say these things, I sometimes feel like the world and those I know are better without me. It’s when I remember the fun times with friends, both in Real Life and on line that I remember something important. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel, as cliché as that sounds, I believe it is true. I read this book “By the Time You Read This I’ll Be Dead” and cried. I have had the thoughts this girl has had and felt like it was the only answer. Her silence throughout the book was sort how I am. I would rather not speak sometimes. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever had suicidal thoughts or to someone who has known someone. I have to say this: suicide is never the answer, talk to someone even if it’s just a friend. Friends I’ve found over these past months can really save your life.

Darkest Mercy Book Trailer and Who's in the Cage? o.O

Darkest Mercy By Melissa Marr is the fifth and final book in the Wicked Lovely series. Which Include Wicked Lovely, Ink Exchange, Fragile Eternity, Radiant Shadows, and now Darkest Mercy (along with two short stories "Old Habits" and "Stopping Time"

Here you can see the Trailer for this much anticpated book!


.... Seth. My reasoning is this: for a long time I thought it could be Keenan. But from my own theories I believe that Keenan is in the desert and I have a very intense feeling that the one in the Cage is Seth... now the question is: who put him there? why? and for what reason?

Omg. This Manga was ...interesting. It has 2 stories in it. First off the Story is Yaoi (meaning Boy/Boy) I have to say I hated the first Story. Akio and Ryo were dispicable. Ryo cries way to much and its all about a pity party for him. He ends up stabbing Akio for not being with him and rapes him. And Akio takes him back! ... the second story was better. A boy has a one night stand with another boy and they fall in love. But with the first story I cannot say I like this story. At all.

Vampire Knight Series by Matsuri Hino

Well I have fininished the series of Vampire Knight (Minus Volume 12)

This is the first Manga that I have read and I highly enjoyed it. The story of Yuki, Zero, and Kaname is something that I can go back and read over and over. and I give you My Favorite Twins!!! *Kiss Kiss* I will go through each character that really stood out to me.

Yuki Cross:

Yuki is great! I love that she is so tiny but kicks so much ass!

Zero Kiryu:

Zero is my favorite of the entire series, I loved watching his eternal struggle as a Vampire Hunter turning Vampire.

Kaname Kuran:

Kaname, is my least favorite. I actually find his obbession with Yuki kind of freaky o.O

Ichiru Kiryu: Zero's Twin is one of those character that seems terrible but he became someone that I really liked. (So Much so that the Twins made it as the main picture for this Post ^_^)

Yori: Yori was a good friend to Yuki, I like how she never pesters Yuki but she still does what she can for her

Kain (Wild): Kain is sexy! He's wild but still has this calmness that I love

AIDO!!! So yes I love me some Aido! He is by Far my Number ONE! More so than even Zero. I love his happy go lucky character and the loyalty he has for Kaname.

Shiki: I felt very badly for Shiki, what happens to him was not something he deserved and he was just being himself never really making trouble. He just wants to sleep


And now I leave you with a picture of MY Aido! Enjoy!!!

Old Habits by Melissa Marr

*Spoilers.... and Much Fangirling*

Good Reads:
Melissa Marr returns to the ravishing world of Faerie with a story set between her bestselling novels Ink Exchange and Fragile Eternity.

Recently anointed king of the Dark Court, Niall struggles to forge a new relationship with his subjects—and with the former Dark King, Irial, his once-friend, once-enemy, and now possible-advisor.

Review: Perfection!! This 10 chapter short story was amazing. I have been waiting for this for years now, ever since I found out about it on the Rath. The Story takes place right after INK and partly during Fragile Eternity. The Story is told from the points of view or Irial, Niall, and Sorcha. Niall has recently become the Dark King and he is trying to come to terms with what that means. I loved how bad ass Niall was, espcially when he is fighting the Hounds (and then Irial.. then the fight with Devlin). Irial was as sexy and loveable as ever! The revelation that Irial has an a relationship or sorts with the high queen is very... interesting. I loved how Irial was trying everything he could to move the pieces of the Dark Court in order to coset Niall. Niall and Irial's "tension" in the story was very sexy. I loved how Irial was trying to get Niall to have sex with someone, and how he hinted it should be him. Seeing Niall's relationship with Siobhan was great as well. Over all the story was beautiful, funny, and over all just amazing. Any Fan of Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely Series will be enthralled by Old Habbits!

Vampire Knight Volume Two

Vampire Knight Volume Two
Matsuri Hino

Yuki and Zero go into town to do some shopping for the Headmaster, and they are attacked by a fiendish vampire called a "Level E". Two Night Class students, Takuma Ichijo and Senri Shiki, come just on time and slay it, and invite Yuki and Zero to their dormitory at midnight to find out why they killed one of their own kind...

Review: The 2nd instalment of Vampire knight is just as good as the first. Zero is becoming a vampire and could become a Level E and go insane. I like how Yuki is willing to help him but I still don't like Kaname that much. I was happy to see more of Aido and "Wild" those two cousins are pretty funny.

Vampire Knight Volume One

Vampire Knight Volume One
By Matsuri Hino

Cross Adademy is attended by two groups of students: the Day Class and the Night Class. At twilight, when the students of the Day Class return to their dorm, they cross paths with the Night Class on their way to school. Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are the Guardians of the school, protecting the Day Class from the Academy's dark secret: the Night Class is full of vampires!
Yuki Cross has no memory of her past prior to the moment she was saved from a vampire attack ten years ago. She was adopted by the headmaster of Cross Academy, and now works alongside Zero to guard the Academy's secret. Yuki believes that vampires and humans can coexist peacefully, but her partner has different ideas...

Review: I have seen the Anime for Vampire Knight and I have always wanted to read the Manga. So when I saw a box set of vampire night for 45$ I had to get it. Volume one was just as good as the Anime if not better. I read this in a day and again fell in love with all the characters. I love Zero's past and his humor mixed in with his self loathing. Yuki is a strong lead and while she is vulnerable to the vampires she still holds up a sense of confidence. Kaname is well I still don't much like him, but I'm hoping by reading the Manga that he'll grow on me. and now on to Volume 2
