Under The Never Sky

I don't enjoy novels with whinny or dim whited heroines. In saying that, I am smitten with the characters in this story. Aria is collected, talented, and very insightful. Perry is rugged and manly, yet kind and affectionate under that bravado. In this story, Aria is left to die in the death shop all because she had a run in with a consuls' crazy son. This is where she runs into Perry, and from rough beginnings they become intertwined. Aria does alot of growth during her time on the outside, and finds beauty in the simplest things. After spending 17 years of her life dwelling in the pods and fractioning among different realms, Aria begins to prefer the "real". I love Perry's character, his adoration for his nephew is wonderful to read. I also enjoy how the author described his feelings toward those he cared about as being "rendered". It deepens the connections and relationships he has. How ideal would it be to have a man feel and experience what you do?

Love it!

Expel picks up right were Vex ends. If you havent read this series yet then I suggest you stop reading this review because it is filled with a lot of spoilers! Fair warning........Are you sure you want to continue?....... Ok dont say I told you so! After Gage and Logan have been throughly mowed over by the mustang, Skyla is yanked into the future with a past self and a past Logan. Logan wants Skyla to save him from the transfer. It was sad to see Logan in the liquid drano(what Skyla calls it) knowing that he died from the accident but I was more worried about Gage and hoping that he had survived the hit and run. Throughout the first little bit of this book its touch and go on if both Gage and Logan are alive. I think I bit off all my finger nails I couldnt stop reading for anything I had to find out what happened to them. Its tough following Skyla through all her missadeventure's, At some point in the book I wanted to throw my hands in the air and say why, why, why. I mean Skyla's little liplocks with Marshall had to come out at some point but the way it happened just made Skyla look like a huge hussy and I felt awful when Gage stormed out of the house. Addison is a very creative story teller and she likes to throw curve balls into the story every now and then just to keep you on your toes. For the most part they were all good curve balls but the ending I just couldnt believe. I had to reread the last chapter twice just to make sure I somehow didnt misread it and ofcourse I didnt which makes my heart hurt. I cannot believe how this book ends! Through this entire series I have loved the Gage and Skyla duo and now I have no idea what to think its like the last two paragraphs of the entire book blew my brains out. I do like Logan and Skyla together and Marshall and Skyla together but Gage was my favorite and to find out that he was in cahoots with Chloe the evil B*@#* just breaks my heart. :( I dont know how I am going to be able to wait till the seventh book comes out because the ending dropped a freaking bomb and I cant get over what happened. As per her usual Addison has told an amazing tale that I will not be able to get out of my head for months to come until I can start the count down for the seventh book to be released. I must say, I am officially obessed and its bad obessed not good obessed. Why oh why did you have to release this by itself? Couldnt it just continue, I mean it was already into the 1200 or so pages why not shoot for the moon and continue? I know there had to be some stopping point but omg really? ok I am going to stop rambling now and if you happen to actually make it all the way to this point kudo's for you. :)

I give it five stars because it was an amazing book that had me wanting more after I finished it. If you havent picked up this series yet then you dont know what your missing.

Happy readings

A marked past

This is my review straight from goodreads. :)

** spoiler alert ** A marked past was given to me for an honest review. Lets start with the pro's of the book. First it was creative enough to be set apart from other witch books I have read recently. Second it had alot of action and just enough romance to make it believable. It isnt like other YA novels were the mc falls in love right from the begining. Thirdthe main characters werent that annoying sometimes MC heriones can really get on my nerves, But Lyla was alright other then sometimes when she decided to keep important information to herself that could potentially harm others, I am willing to look past her faults. :) On to the cons! First the plot was just way to predictable I felt like I knew what was going on right when she moved to Salem and it didnt leave me guessing at all. Second I didnt understand why Nathan had to be killed off in the end because Hana was able to revive Lucas why couldnt she save Nathan? Other then that I didnt have any issues with the book. I gave the Book three stars because I felt that it could have been a little better but if you have time to waste then you could waste it reading this book and not feel like you need the last two hours back from your life. :)

Unearthly (Unearthly #1)
by (Goodreads Author)
In the beginning, there's a boy standing in the trees . . . .
Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn't easy.
Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place—and out of place at the same time. Because there's another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara's less angelic side.
As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she'd have to make—between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?
Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.

With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.
In this compelling sequel to "Unearthly," Cynthia Hand captures the joy of first love, the anguish of loss, and the confusion of becoming who you are.

If you enjoy books about angels then give this one a chance.

I am just going to say it! I havent read a book lately that has brought tears to my eyes but also had me giggling like a school girl throughout the entire book. I feel silly admitting that I cried in this book. I dont know if that was what the author was going for but the last chapter was just so amazing I dont have words to describe it. I loved that Clara was smart and strong unlike some of the main characters in other novels who are kinda whiney and ridiculous. I cant wait to get the second book in my hands my impatience is killing me. I just read the sample on my nook and I can tell thats its going to be amazing book. I might have to wait to read it the third one doesnt come out till early 2013 and I am sure that it will be left on a cliff hanger, per usual second books. Or I may just read it now any ways.:) This book is about angel bloods and fallen angels. Yes I am reading more angel stuff I cant help it there are some really good books out lately about angels! I like so I shall read. :) Check this book out it is worth the time to read.
