    Burn Bright by Marianne de Pierres

    Title: Burn Bright Author: Marianne de Pierres Series: (Night Creatures #1) Published: March 2011 by Random House Australia Rating: If you noticed my url changed. My awesome host, Misaki, bought me a new domain. Isn’t she so awesome? I love her tons. And I have to fix things before I started blogging again. But who cares what I wrote anyways? LOL Ok how do I start this? I really so confused with this book. Unlike Wither when I said I—

    The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa

    Title: The Iron Knight Author: Julie Kagawa Series: (Iron Fey #4) Expected publication: October 25th 2011 by Harlequin Rating: I received an eARC from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley. Thank you. All Iron Fey fans out there wouldn’t be disappointed because Julie Kagawa did it again— another awesome book! This is my favorite book in the series. Ok, so maybe I’m a bit biased because I love Ash. But I’m pretty sure fans will agree with me after they read this book.—

    Tris and Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison

    Title: Tris and Izzie Author: Mette Ivie Harrison Expected publication: October 11th 2011 by EgmontUSA Rating: I received an eARC from EgmontUSA via Netgalley. Thank you. I have a confession, I don’t know “Tristan and Iseult” story. If it is as popular or as tragic as Romeo and Juliet, that I don’t know. I didn’t bother to check it out either. I decided to take as it is. And hey, they said ignorance is bliss, right? Well, I think it worked—

    Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter

    Title: Uncommon Criminals Author: Ally Carter Series: (Heist Society #2) Published: June 2011 by Disney-Hyperion Book Rating: I think I mentioned it before that I wasn’t that blown away by Ally Carter’s books but when my sister bought Height Society I still decided to give a try. They are not bad (need to emphasized that) it just… it wasn’t my type. Though sometimes, I see myself liking the story but as the entirety… not that much. A good book, a—

    Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

    Title: Starcrossed Author: Josephine Angelini Series: (Starcrossed #1) Published: May 2011 by HarperTeen Rating: It took me longer than I thought. I never expected to finish it in two days. Normally I can finish it in a day, especially if I really, really like the story. Less than 500 pages is a piece of cake, not to brag or anything, lol. But I find the first half of this book really boring, the story moves so slow, really slow. I—

    Cross My Heart by Katie Klein

    Title: Cross My Heart (ebook) Author: Katie Klein Rating: I just randomly picked this book. And really glad I read it. At first, the story kinda reminds me of Perfect Chemistry, a chick lit I really, really like. You know a boy from the wrong side of the town, and a good girl, an Ivy League material. Bad boy + good girl story. But this is where the similarities end. It was completely different from PC, which I’m really thankful—

    Trial by Fire by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

    Title: Trial by Fire Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes Series: (Raised by Wolves #2) Published: June 2011 by EgmontUSA Rating: I didn’t know why I still read this series when I didn’t really like the first one. But this is one of those books that you’re curious to know what happen. But I’m not all hyped or whatever to know what’s gonna happen, mind you. I just read it for the perks of it. Just wanted to know, is all. And,—

    Bloodspell by Amalie Howard

    Title: Bloodspell Author: by Amalie Howard Series: (Bloodspell #1) Published: June 2011 by Langdon Street Press Rating: I’m not in the mood to write anything lately here. Plus, I’m tweaking this little blog of mine to satisfy the webdesigner in me. Regardless of how simple this theme is, nothing can beat the feeling that you, alone, have this theme. Only me. And yes, the internet is a vast world, chances are it might resemble someone else’s, but this is custom—

    Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

    Title: Last Sacrifice Author: Richelle Mead Series: (Vampire Academy #6) Pages: 594 Rating: I did mention that I detest book series with good start and bad ending. Well, Vampire Academy is a terrific example of that. Although it wasn’t exactly a solid start for me. But I came to like book two and three, then book four came and it gradually became a frustrating thing to read. I didn’t force myself to finish it, thank goodness, but can’t help frowning,—

    Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead

    Title: Spirit Bound Author: Richelle Mead Series: (Vampire Academy #5) Pages: 489 Rating: Ever since I decided to post my opinions of books that I read (I still cringe to word ‘review’ because I can even consider mine as), I always caught myself mentally listing the things I notice, actually, it’s more of the things that frustrate me, or makes me giddy, but for most parts, things that irritates me. It’s somehow lose the appeal, sometimes I regret doing this—

    Blood Promise by Richelle Mead

    Title: Blood Promise Author: Richelle Mead Series: (Vampire Academy #4) Pages: 503 Rating: Let me start this post with ‘I didn’t like it.’ Yeah, it was kinda terrible, but I still gave it 3 stars, because I’m sort of lenient when a book came from a series that I like. Me, liking the entire series weigh on the way I rate the book. I know, terrible excuse if you ask me. But I still do it. Rose dropped out of—

    Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

    Title: Shadow Kiss Author: Richelle Mead Series: (Vampire Academy #3) Pages: 443 Rating: Did I already mention how difficult it is to write a summary from a series that you continuously reading? I did? Ok, so yeah so hard. Sometimes I already sound redundant, ‘coz there’s a chance that I already said what I’ll say. There. So because I like pushing myself to the limits of my, well, limits. I’ll still going to do it until book 6. Yes, thank—

    Frostbite by Richelle Mead

    Title: Frostbite Author: Richelle Mead Series: (Vampire Academy #2) Pages: 327 Rating: You know I find it difficult to write a review (well, as much as possible I don’t like to refer my post as reviews, but for the sake of nothing else to coin for it, let’s just use the term then), successively. I did in Percy Jackson series, and look how miserable, redundant and utter mess it was. But for my reading pace, I like it this way.—

    Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

    Title: Vampire Academy Author: Richelle Mead Series: (Vampire Academy #1) Pages: 332 Rating: As much as I am skeptical with vampire books I’m more intrigued by them. So what’s better way to satiate this curiosity than to read them, albeit the popular ones. I’m not gonna lie, and it’s not a big secret anyways that I like Twilight, and it’s the only vampire book that I really like. I’ve tried other vampire books but sadly they felt short for me.—
