Absolutely Lovely!

Vespertine was very well written. I loved the syle of Mitchell's writing and how descriptive she was. The words she chose and the time period fit perfectly with her plot/storyline. I loved this book and ended up reading it quite quickly, savoring each pages as if it would disappear too quickly. The story itself was very unique and found myself suprised at certain points along the plotline. This book invloved alot of relatable situations and found that this very well could have been real. I for one believe in higher power.

In Vesperine Amelia had everything until the visions came everyday at sunset. She say visions of things that were going to happen and it frightened her. She's sent away in the beginning of the story to find a suitable husband, but as her visions progress the more intense her life becomes. People beg of her service, asking her to tell them their future and so she does. She becomes friends with the girl she's staying with, they become very close and she herself finds a man she loves; Nathaniel. But as the visions began to change from sweet and innocent to vicious she's put to the test on what to do and how to keep her world from falling apart.

This novel was fantastic and I gave it 4 and a half stars. Mitchell definately knows how to write. Her ending was well formed and I loved how all the questions we had filed in our head through the book were answered, leaving the reader full and satisfied. I cannot wait to see what else is in store for Mitchell.

Burn Angel, burn!

Angel Burn to me was very unique. I found the Weatherly did a fantastic job on creating a world where the characters were put to tests and thrown into situations that were very hard to get out of. This first installment of the angel trilogy had me on the tips of my toes. There was action, love, suspense, and suprises. All of these elements make for a fun read.

Willow is yanked from her world when and angel assasin recuses her from the very creatures she half part of. The angels world is dying and are foced to come to earth to do their bidding and to feed off the life energy of the inhabinants of earth(humans) leaving them sick and dying. With thousands of angels heading to earth in separate waves there's not much time to stop them. But Willow's the answer. She's half angel and therefore has a unique form of an angel and with her she's the secret weapon to destroy the angels. But how does she? And who's going to help her? These are the questions the reader wants to know and only Willow with the help of the assasin assigned to kill her can answer these questions along with the help of others later down the road.

This book definately had me wanting to read more and the writing itself was very well done and found very little errors. The only part I didn't like about this was, some parts were just a little wierd for me but in the end I can't wait to read more and see what else she had in stored for us readers.

I give this book 4 and half stars!

A Wicked start to a new series!!

Wicked woods takes place in Wicked MA, where Briony is sent to her Aunt's Inn due to the disappearnce of her parents and brother. She soon finds that the Town of Wicked is full of mysterious things and after being saved by a mysterious boy named Fallon she soon discovers that the town of "Wicked" might just be that 'wicked'. She makes new friends at her new school and soon grows closer to Fallon and right when she thinks life is finally getting back in order Fallon reveals to her something about himself that might just tear her world apart. This first installment in the "Wicked Woods" series is packed full of action, suspence and a little bit of romance. There's one thing for sure, once you enter the world of Wicked Woods, there's no turning back.

I loved the development of the characters, seeing them introduced and grow a little in the book was very good. I loved Fallon, his name alone is quite mysterious and interesting, I mean wouldn't you after hearing a name at that. swoon? And Kevin the one who shows up at the resteraunt where Briony works is mysterious himself. There's one thing for sure, I love Gow's writing and sense of beauty she puts into her work. I give this book 4 and a half stars and I can't wait to read "Shimmer" the second installment in the "Wicked Woods" Series.
