I am hoping this book is good as her other two books I read. I think this is the first book. But not sure.

Book Review:

Few Spoilers….

I really enjoyed reading this book the only problem I have is the big girl > skinny girl. Gets pretty annoying after awhile especially if you a big girl you wouldn’t like for skinny chick to say why you so fat. Or she a whale. But in every book I read by this author. It’s like she dislike skinny females.

Other then that annoying part I enjoyed this and I figured that Fresh was family of the kid Snoop. He a perv anyway for dating a 16 year old though wasn’t he like 20 just like Ke’Ron at least K had more since to wait. But her mom dipping out on her and then her daddy smh just crazy she had nobody but she had a fucked up attitude remind me of 17 y/o niece. But she way worse with her mouth ISIS was.

But when I read the back I’m like maybe her brother the stick up kid was going to get murder be it was her brother who had a disability like come on who going to kill a person with a disability like get real, but I wish her brother had a bit more common since to not get in a car with strangers dang.

Book Description: 

Lesson #1: You come for me, I come back even harder for you. Fair exchange. No robberies. Isis Carter got schooled early on in surviving the streets. When some girls put a beatdown on her, she took back what was hers. When her brother was killed and her mom, Queenie, bailed, Isis fought to stay strong. And when her dad abandoned her for his new family, sixteen-year-old Isis buried the hurt by looking out for herself—and hookin’ up with bad boy Fresh…until a run-in with the law shatters Isis’s world and threatens to destroy her future. 

Now the only person Isis can rely on is herself…until her secret crush K-Rock steps in. But when Isis lets her guard down, will she be given a second chance to get her life straight or will it cost her everything?

Book Review:

I know that I didn’t read this series from the beginning, but I like the other girls, but the Rich girl I knew she was a problem. But, me not knowing the full story with the London situation I felt that Spencer shouldn’t have done what she did to her. I also knew her daddy wasn’t crazy. Their parents well mothers aren’t mothers at all. And Heather and Rich are sisters, ha and Rich hates her I hope in book 5 they find out there family.

Book Description:

Finally, London Phillips is defying her domineering mother and taking control of her life. But she’s striking back with a weapon that could destroy her future—and her last chance at real love. . .

Two too many cuties have left Rich Montgomery desperate for the perfect cover-up—but when her house of lies comes tumbling down, things get pretty twisted and her fate is left in the hands of her most vengeful frenemy. . .

Heather Cummings is more successful than ever thanks to an amazing comeback—and the ultimate Hollywood betrayal. But old habits die hard and threaten to turn her glittering success to sparkling ash. . .

There’s no one better than Spencer Ellington when it comes to revenge. But stopping her inheritance-stealing mother and saving her crown turns into an all-access media battle. Now Hollywood High’s in-crowd is poised for oh-so-sweet payback . . .

Blood Forever by Mari Mancusi

Book Review: 

I finish Blood Forever in two days, I started this just yesterday, once I finish reading Soul Bound.

[Few Spoilers ALERT]!

I enjoyed this book, because of both Sunny, Magnus, Jareth, and Rayne got a do-over and happy ending in the end. Like yes, finally, Pyrus dusky self-got what he deserved like I was hoping for Pyrus to die, like get eating by those Zombies but that wasn’t the chase, he didn’t even die, ugh, he wack evil self only got life in vampire prison lol, like whhhyy? But I did get happy though when Bertha died for the second time; Karma’s a mother chicken huh? Lol but little ol’ Lucifent got killed again for the second time, I was like dang, lol little ol’ child vampire can’t catch a break, especially when the first he got killed by Bertha and in Blood Forever he got killed by Pyrus. I think he would’ve shut and lived he may not have been a harm to the human race, as he says he had human friends but since Pyrus is bipolar, that didn’t happen. Glad Jareth and Rayne got married in the end, and both Rayne and Sunshine parents are alive, including Sunny being alive to and the guys got their memory back, in the end, Yes awesomeness book.

Blood Forever by Mari Mancusi

Description:

Sunny and Rayne McDonald have had their lives turned upside down thanks to the Blood Coven. But when the past itself is changed, the sisters will do anything to get back what they’ve lost…

After making a deal with the devil, Rayne and her twin sister, Sunny, have been given the chance to go back in time—to prevent that fateful night when Sunny was bitten by Magnus from ever happening. But while Sunny has been offered a vampire-free existence, she finds she doesn’t want to live without Magnus by her side. And although Rayne puts up a stoic front, she secretly wishes that the vampire Jareth was back in her arms.

To reclaim their lives, Sunny and Rayne team up to figure out a way to change history for the better. Problem is, Jareth and Magnus aren’t all that eager to help two unfamiliar girls who somehow know everything about their vampiric organization. Now, if the twins can’t get the boys on their side, history may spiral out of control—destroying not only the Blood Coven, but quite possibly the entire human race…

Book Review: 

I started on Soul Bound back in 2013 or maybe 2014 (November or October) I can’t remember, but It took me awhile to finish this book and today midnight I almost finish it close to 1:00 am lol. I can say this book was good as the other six books once I took the time to get into the book and read it because the first time I read it, I kept getting distracted and couldn’t quite get into it. And man I can’t wait to read part eight (with Sunny and Rayne) point of view, I know it’s going to be good.

[SPOILER ALERT ]

Plus with Sunny getting a do-over to get her soul back, I couldn’t blame Rayne, that’s her twin sister, who wouldn’t miss that opportunity to get their family soul back and have them on EARTH again. I also, like how the author Mari Mancusi added Hades (god of the underworld), his wife Persephone (Goddess of the underworld, the daughter of Zeus) and Hercules (Hero, and the son of Zeus). And how she wrote them in the book, by their looks the way they dress, and how Persephone and Hercules were dating behind Hade’s back lol like whhhhhat? Lol, plus when people die they went to the ‘Underworld” it’s kind of unique, like heaven and hell mixed in one, it was interesting. After seeing all of that, I wonder if “RACE” the rockstar going to change his ways as he says lol. But in the end, I hope they get Sunny from being dead and get Magnus from Pyrus claws; I am also glad that Jareth got to meet and see his family again since he blamed himself for his sister death. But I do wish his brother (wish he got to see his brother again and hopefully, prayerfully, I probably already know, both Sunny, and Rayne will be reunited with their vampire boyfriends Magnus and Jareth.

Book Review: 

Spoilers…..”THE RUBY CIRCLE>>>>> #Bloodlines, #BOOK6…..

I started on this book back in 2015 I believe maybe it was last year. But anyways, I stopped reading this book because I got bored with it. I’m glad that I finally finished it. When I read this section (No automatic alt text available.) of the book I’m like “Hold the front door, Dimitri and Adrian are cousins”? I didn’t see that coming at all. OMG.

Sydney is RIGHT for Adrian; he used to be so inLOVE with Rose until he met Sydney, when they got together I was like “yes, yes” lol. But in this book Sydney, got on my nerves for like 2.5 seconds lol. Because she seems controlling, trying to tell Adrain what to do when he doesn’t tell her she can’t help find Jill. But she wants him to stop using magic and helping people. But she’s helping people with her magic. Like he’s family stopped speaking to him because of her. But I did and do understand her especially when he almost LOST control and let spirit take him. His dead aunt tried to make him receive the spirit and let it take him whereas Sydney wanted to save him, in the end, he took him meds to get rid of both spirit and his aunt.

At the end I glad that they found a happy ending, I figured that both Adrian and Sydney was going to end up taking care of Declan because Neil didn’t want people to know about the baby, Olive died to keep that secret, I couldn’t blame either of them. And Sydney dad still evil as ever smh nothing has changed with that man. I was glad when Jill got saved, but she got save and I’m like is this book ever going to end lol. ugh. It was good, though, but I got tired of reading.

 

My next read 📖 is The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead. Very good series. Love her Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series 📚 I LOVE ADRIAN HE’S SO MY BOOK BOYFRIEND 😂😂

📘The Cemetery Boys by, Heather Brewer 📔

 ​Finally got “The Cemetery Boys by, Heather Brewer > IG @unclezacbrewer < can’t wait to read this 📔 

Synopsis > Book Description :

When Stephen is forced to move back to the nowhere town where his father grew up, he’s already sure he’s not going to like it. Spencer, Michigan, is like a town straight out of a Hitchcock movie, with old-fashioned people who see things only in black-and-white. But things start looking up when Stephen meets the mysterious twins Cara and Devon. They’re total punks–hardly the kind of people Stephen’s dad wants him hanging out with–but they’re a breath of fresh air in this backward town. The only problem is, Cara and Devon don’t always get along, and as Stephen forms a friendship with the charismatic Devon and something more with the trouble Cara, he starts to feel like he’s getting caught in the middle of a conflict he doesn’t fully understand. And as Devon’s group of friends, who hang out in a cemetery they call The Playground, get up to increasingly reckless activities to pass the summer days, Stephen worries he may be in over his head.

Stephen’s fears prove well-founded when he learns of Spencer’s dark past. It seems the poor factory town has a history of “bad times,” and many of the town’s oldest residents attribute the bad times to creatures right out of an urban legend. The legend goes that the only way the town will prosper again is if someone makes a sacrifice to these nightmarish creatures. And while Stephen isn’t one to believe in old stories, it seems Devon and his gang might put a lot of faith in them. Maybe even enough to kill for them.

Now, Stephen has to decide what he believes, where his allegiances lie, and who will really be his friend in the end. 

 “The Cemetery Boys by Heather Brewer” 


Book Review: 


Wow, I wasn’t really surprised but I knew that those “Cemetery boys” weren’t Stephen friends at all. That whole family is crazy. That girl Carla play Stephen good. I knew something was up with the Devin boy. Smh. The Lane kid, and his father told him to stay away from the boys and look what happened in the end he lost his father.

UNABRIDGED

 Book Review:

I finally finish this book; it took me almost three years to finish this book LMFAO. Like I bought this book in 2014, started on it in 2014 and stopped reading the book and bought it on Audible still bored. Lol! Because the book was so LONG I wasn’t able to finish it and here in December 2016 the day after Christmas I finally finish it. Smh!

Good book, though, I felt so bad for Zachary because he been through hell and back from being captured to being let go to being stabbed twice, run away to being shot. Like he couldn’t catch a break.

My heart was racing while listening to this book on audible. I’m like he better not die. Glad he didn’t because I would’ve been one mad girl lol.

PS:
The narrator did a good job with narrating the story.

 

Last book to the Shade Trilogy 📒

Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready

Description:

In this dramatic conclusion to the Shade trilogy, Aura and Zachary’s relationship sizzles as the secrets of the Shift are revealed.

Life can change in an instant, and no one understands that better than Aura. It’s been almost a year since her boyfriend tragically died.

But when the government threatens his life in an attempt to learn Aura’s secrets, she will stop at nothing to protect herself and the one she loves…even if that means betraying her own heart.
