Shadowspell ; number four!!

Title: Shadowspell
: Jenna Black

Page: 304
: On top of spending most of her time in a bunkerlike safe house and having her dates hijacked by a formidable Fae bodyguard, Faeriewalker Dana Hathaway is in for some more bad news: the Erlking and his pack of murderous minions known as the Wild Hunt have descended upon Avalon. With his homicidal appetite and immortal powers, the Erlking has long been the nightmare of the Fae realm. A fragile treaty with the Faerie Queen, sealed with a mysterious spell, is the one thing that keeps him from hunting unchecked in Avalon, the only place on Earth where humans and Fae live together. Which means Dana’s in trouble, since it’s common knowledge that the Faerie Queen wants her – and her rare Faeriewalker powers – dead. The smoldering, sexy Erlking’s got his sights set on Dana, but does he only seek to kill her, or does he have something much darker in mind?

Okay, so i'm FINALLY doing a review on this. FINALLY.
But i'm going to be quick, cause i'm in a horrible mood, but felt bad about leaving yall in the cold, so i'm going to do it anyway.

Likes --
1. Keenan is my favorite. I named my bunny after him. True story.
2. The Erlking is AMAZING. I have a thing for dark guys (;
3. Dana's Dad is really sweet in a cold, fae way.
4. The way Jenna Black describes the scenary in this book is great. I could picture everything crystal clear in my mind.

Dislikes --
1. There wasn't enough Keenan
2. It felt like something was....missing. Its going really slow in some places, and it just seemed...lacking.

Okay, so that was incredibly short, but as i said, i'm in a horrible mood.

You can find this book here -- ( Amazon, Barns&Noble , Borders) and more about Jenna Black by clicking on her name.

The Superbowl

Okay, so the majority of my readers are American. So most of you know what a superbowl is (that is happening right now) is. Its when the two best American Football team get together and play football in a big stadium.

...whats the point? Or a better question, is why is it such a big deal?

Now, you big football fans are probably like, "Whats the big deal?!?! Whats the BIG DEAL?!?! Holly, its the biggest event in football history!" Yea, yea, i get all of that. But do you know how much MONEY it cost?

We are like... 14 billion (maybe more, i - once again - don't feel like looking it up) in debt to England. AND our economy is horrid. Do you know how much a Superbowl cost? Really do you? Cause i have no clue. I tried to look it up on the internet, but it couldn't find it anywhere.

But i do know that for a 30 second comercial is 2.5 MILLION dollars. That is ri-diculous. Even though, i must say, there the only reason I watch the superbowl.

So, can someone please shine some light on the subject?


Later (:

The Candidates [Delcroix Academy] ; number three!

Title: The Candidates
Author: Inara Scott
Pages: 293
Summary: Dancia Lewis is far from popular. And that's not just because of her average grades or her less-than-glamorous wardrobe. In fact, Dancia's mediocrity is a welcome cover for her secret: whenever she sees a person threatening someone she cares about, things just...happen. Cars skid. Structures collapse. Usually someone gets hurt. So Dancia does everything possible to avoid getting close to anyone, belieiving this way she can supress her powers and keep them hidden.

But when recruiters from the prestigious Delcroix Academy show up in her living room to offer her a full scholarship, Dancia's days of living under the radar may be over. Only, Delcroix is a school for diplomats' kids and child geniuses--not B students with uncontrollable telekinetic tendencies. So why are they treating Dancia like she's special? Even the hottest guy on campus seems to be going out of his way to make Dancia feel welcome.

And then there's her mysterious new friend Jack, who can't stay out of trouble. He suspects something dangerous is going on at the Academy and wants Dancia to help him figure out what. But Dancia isn't convinced. She hopes that maybe the recruiters know more about her "gift" than they're letting on. Maybe they can help her understand how to use it...But not even Dancia could have imagined what awaits her behind the gates of Delcroix Academy.

Review --

Hey guys!! Sorry i haven't updated in a while. Back in January there was this really big snow storm (on the week of our exams, go figure) and I read this book that week. With that being said, this is long over due. But after that week things got crazy with exams and all that jazz. But i'm here now! Never fear (:

Okay, so this book was atcually pretty good. I had never heard of it til i was buying Shadowspell (review thats coming up next) on Amazon and this caught my eye. So i bought it on a whim, praying to God it was a good book.

My prayers were answered.

Likes --

1. Dancia is a really cool character. I mean, other than it being TOTALLY predictable that she was going to have this great power, she was really cool. But with every cool character, there is some annoyance with that character. You heard me right. She annoys the CRAP out of me.

2. Jack is my new boyfriend. I love him, i love him, i love him.

3. Dancia's grandma is my favorite (:

4. The way the author describes all the characters in the book is nice. You have a very good picture in your head of what they look like and what their power is.

Dislike --

1. Cameron. There is just something...fishy going on there.

2. Mr. Jordan *

Other than those two dislikes, i really did like the book. The 'fight' scene was uber cool, and Jack is AMAZING. Though, i do find the "Protectors*" quite fishy. I don't really know what to think about them. I think there is more than just trying to 'protect' people form the Candidates.

This is the first book of the series, and it came out August 24 of last year. You can get it here -- (Borders, Amazon, Barns&Noble) and you can learn more about Inara Scott <--buy clicking on her name (:

Not sure if i'm doing Shadowspell tonight or not...
