And here is one more song that I could not find at so it was found in Youtube and you can play the video below to listen to it!

and if you didn't know already about the books, here's the summary for Angel Star:

Seventeen-year-old Teagan McNeel falls for captivating Garreth Adams and soon discovers that her crush has an eight-point star etched into the palm of his right hand-the mark of an angel.

But where there is light, dark follows, and she and Garreth suddenly find themselves vulnerable to a dark angel's malicious plan that could threaten not only her life, but the lives of everyone she knows.

Divinely woven together, Angel Star takes readers on a reflective journey when one angel's sacrifice collides with another angel's vicious ambition in a way that is sure to have readers searching for their own willpower.
And here's the summary for the second book of the Angel Star's Series "Lemniscate"
For Teagan, these last few months have been heaven on earth- especially now that Garreth, her boyfriend and guardian angel, is earthbound. But perhaps Garreth is becoming a little more human than either of them expected.

Now, Teagan must realize that her world is once again about to shift, as she questions the faith she held in others against those once considered enemies.

In this continuation of Angel Star, Lemniscate will draw you even deeper into the world of dark and light as Teagan realizes the angel who could possibly save them all is the one angel she feared the most.
So please if you haven't read them already please do, they will definately be worth the read!!

Destined to be Amazing....

First thoughts:

Sigh, how can I possibly sum up all the great things about this book? I think my favorite part of this book was the writing itself, it was written so beautifully ans so original. The cover itself really sums up the point of the book and conflict and it was beautiful all the way around. The concept itself was really cool and this is yet another book to be added to the favorites shelf!


This is a book about a dying society, where cancer has been cured and the perfect humans have been created. But with greatness always comes sadness. The first Generations, the ones who were created gentically are perfect, they are healthy and everything you could ever desire but their children are another story. They found that their childen who are born healthy die at a young age. Boys at the age of 25 and girls at the age of 20. With a crisis on hand, poverty skyrockets and the wealthy men kidnap young girls to carry on their line.

Rhine is no exception, her parents a first generation are killed when she is only 12 years old, leaving behind her and her twin Rowan. The two of them stick together and protect each other through hardship and surviving the dying world. But they have to work for money, and where Rowan does physical work, Rhine takes phone calls. But when she see's an ad asking for girls to give bone marrow, Rhine sees it as a chance to earn money. Little did she know that the ad was luring her in to a trap. Soon she is one of the three picked out of the 12 girls who are kidnapped and are brought to marry a wealthy house Govenor. Through it all she hopes of escape to go back to her brother in New York but escape doesn't come easy, she finds her emotions and thoughts distracting and soon escape seems impossible but when she takes that flying leap does she make it?

Last Thoughts:

I must admit, loved everything about this book, had great character development and it was fast enough paced that I could constantly read it and not be bored! I definately recommend this to anyone who likes to read books about the future of our society. Also for those who like a fast read and love books that are mysterious and magical in their own world. I give this book 5 stars!

Yet Another Inspiring Angel Book....

First Thoughts:

I'm so glad that I risked reading this book. It was a wonderful and fast read for me. I've been fascinated with angels for quite awhile now. So when I come across an angel book I question to read it and I so chose to read this one. It really was fun to get inside the characters minds and experience along side Raea what it's like to be thrown from your normal life into something much more different than you could ever imagine.


This is about a girl who lost her mom and stepfather when she was five, her mother gave her a crystal to guard and keep and told her never to lose it. When we come into the present and Raea is a senior in high school we see how much she's dealt with and how she interacts with her friends. Raea is living a normal life living with her aunt and counsins but when things start getting wierd, terrible headaches and the same dream over and over again she starts to question her life. Elis the "wierd guy" at school seems to be able to soothe her headaches and is watching her afar which creeps Raea out even more but Pallin a new "foreign" exchange student shows up at school and has eyes only for her. Soon Raea discovers her true idenity and must fight alongside Elis to not only advoid the danger that lurks withing her town but the Nina who has eyes to expose her...

This short book is packed with plenty of action and suspense....if you like angels I recommend you read this so that you may open your eyes to another creative world of the unexplained.

Last Thoughts:

I really liked this book, read it in a day and gave it four stars for it's creativity and writing!!

Yet Another Fantastic book by Chandler

First Impression:

What do I say about this book?! I absolutely loved it just as much as the fist book. This was a turn pager for sure and couldn't help but keep reading. Ugh! I'm still thinking of everything happened, there was definately a shocker in here! It really had such vivid detail, and such loveable characters...there really isn't anything that I hated about this book because everything that these characters went through, had to happen.


Tristan has moved to the beyond and Ivy has Will now, who are trying to be in a relationship. Beth, Ivy and Tristian along with Kelsey and Dhanya have all gone to Cape Cod for the summer to work at the inn. Ivy, will and Beth went to help heal from the incidents from last year. But just as things were getting settled Ivy and Beth get in a car accident and Ivy dies...that is until she is brought back to life by her one and only true love Tristan. When Ivy wakes up in the hospital she feels an even deeper longing for tristian and knows that maybe the love she has Will goes only so far. And then she meets this mysterious guy who can't remember anything but he's covered in cuts and deep bruises. Together Ivy and "Guy" try to discover his past while her own life starts to slowly unravel.

Last Thoughts:

In this heart pounding sequel, you'll find more of Lacey, the Angel that helped them in last the book, you'll find love, and a deeper understanding on how much a person would be willing to sacrifice for her love. I absolutely adored this book and can't wait for the next one to come out, because there HAS to be a next one! Chandler created yet another masterpiece and I give this book 5 stars!!

This book was on Fire!!

First Thoughts:

Ah...what do I even say about this book?! I have completely fallen head over heels for it. The character's build up was fantastic, it was a thrilling read. I found it very hard to put down. The writing was just as amazing as the plot and I can't wait till Goddess Interrupted comes out. Ugh! AMAZING. Greek Mythology used to just be a second thought but lately it's been more than that, I love it and this book just made me love it even more. The playing of ideas and creating these God's and Goddess's to be something different then we percieved them. Carter gave these character personalities and looks that were very believeable. And I found that there were many twists and turns that I hadn't expected. One thing is for sure this is the start of an amazing series that many will soon grow to love.


Kate Winters is moving from New York to her mothers childhood home all because her mother is dying from Cancer. Kate is devastated, she has abandoned all chances of a social life to care for her sick mother but she was fine with that because the bond between the two of them was more than some silly life. So when she brings her to this new small town she has only one thing on her mind and that is caring for her mother and dealing with the after effects from when she does die. But Kate soon discovers that this is no oridnary town and she meets a mysterious guy named Henry who offers her one heck of a deal; her mother's life for her to come stay with him for six months every year. But can Kate make that sacrifice and if she does is she ready to deal what's behind Manor Gates?

Last Thoughts:

I loved this book, I laughed at times, I cried, I was angry along side Kate. I felt I was Kate and any author who can give me that is wonderful, So thanks Carter!! It was a wonderful and fast read for me. and a special thanks to Netgalley for allowing me to preview this book early, I'm so glad I was able to read it and can't wait till it offically comes out so that I may purchase a copy to read in the future! I give this book 5 stars!!
