TAG : Creatures of the Night

I have thought about doing a Halloween themed post but couldn't think of one and then Anna @ Enchanted by YA tagged me to do the Creatures of the Night tag, originally created by Katytastic over on YouTube (:
Thank you again Anna! ♥
And now I will start :D

To be honest I do not really read that many books with vampires in them because I don't know.. Probably they just do not hook me? But an amazing book/series with vampires, not as main creatures, is the Shadow Falls series by C. C. Hunter. It is about a camp where kids go to who aren't completly human but vampires, werewolves, faeries, shapeshifters etc.

I do not read books with werewolves that often either and so I go with City of Bones (or the complete Mortal Instruments series) by Cassandra Clare. In this series I really do like the werewolves and I  think they are fun.

I haven't read one single book with zombies in it! *shame* But I watched the movie to Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion and enjoyed it. So that's my choice (:

For that I pick Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (review here). There is a ghost in it but I won't say who it is because that would be a too big spoiler.!

I can't just go with one for that! So I first choose Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini. It is an amazing book surounding witchcraft and it is beautifuly written! And the second is Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins (review here). It has witchcraft and witches in it but not mainly. Nevertheless it is an awesome book!

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas (review here)! Can't think of any other book with such great faes! Nothing else -> Spoiler!

My only books with demons in it are The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments, both by Cassandra Clare. Just saying :D

I can only think of Ithuriel and Raziel in City of Glass by Cassandra Clare.. And sorry that I have Cassie's books as so many answers..

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout (review here)! Great, amazing, fenomenal book series with aliens *-*

Superpowered Human
Many. But one book I really love in this kind of genre is Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini (review here). Okay. Maybe they are demigods but they have superpowers like hell and look like humans so I think the answers counts :D

That was it! And now I tag some people (:

REVIEW : Dreamless by Josephine Angelini


Can true love be forgotten? 

As the only scion who can descend into the Underworld, Helen Hamilton has been given a nearly impossible task. By night she wanders through Hades, trying to stop the endless cycle of revenge that has cursed her family. By day she struggles to overcome the fatigue that is rapidly eroding her sanity. Without Lucas by her side, Helen is not sure she has the strength to go on.

Just as Helen is pushed to her breaking point, a mysterious new Scion comes to her rescue. Funny and brave, Orion shields her from the dangers of the Underworld. But time is running out. A ruthless foe plots against them, and the Furies' cry for blood is growing louder.

As the ancient Greek world collides with the mortal one, Helen's sheltered life on Nantucket descends into chaos. But the hardest task of all will be forgetting Lucas Delos. 


I loved this book way more than when I read it back earlier this year.

The new character Orion for once is so adorable even though I amTteam Lucas :D
But I think in this book and in the whole trilogy it isn't that kind of love triangle like in other books but I would say it's like the one of The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare because Helen loves both, the same as Tessa in TID.

Okay. The Hades really freaked me out at some point but yeah :D

Anyway. At some point in this book I was so confused like Helen was because of Lucas actions but afterwards the only thing I thought was that it must have been really hard for him to do it.

Orion was Helen such a support in the Underworld which is why I like him that much.
Jason annoyed me a bit with the whole 'Helen-you-are-a-Scion-but-Claire-not' thing but well... I can understand him aswell..

It was a great sequel to Starcrossed !

REVIEW : Shadows (Lux 0.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout


The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane.

Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.

Bethany can’t deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren’t a complication she wants, she can’t stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she’s drawn in.

Captivated. Lured. Loved.

Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence...and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can’t stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.


I think it was a great idea to write a prequel novel for this series in Dawson's and Beth's (and well sometimes Daemon's) POV to kind of understand Daemon's actions in manly Obsidian more than we already know of.

And you aswell just see Dawson's and Beth's feeling for each other more clearly because it focused on them and not as in the series on Katy and Daemon.

I personally read Shadows after I finished the Lux series because of the contexts and I would say it was a good decision that way and I'd recommend others to do it the same order.

REVIEW : Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini


How do you defy destiny?

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.

As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.


This was a re-read for me because I read this book back at the beginning of the year for the first time and to be honest this was then my first greek mythology like book.

And I loved it!
It has another way of "teaching" you the myths of the Greek Gods than in Percy Jackson series, which my friends and I manly read it BECAUSE we like the Starcrossed trilogy that much.
The characters are great and the developement of each's charcater's characteristics (holy gods what a sentence).
The romance is cute and it has a highschool setting aswell, what I really like in thist book, manly because of Hergie :D

Even though I didn't love Helen at the beginning of the book since she was a little mehh in my opinion, she grew more and more and I loved here more and more thoughout the discovery of her demigod beeing.
Helens freinds from school, Claire and Matt, are fun and Hector and the twins are just adorable.

I recommend this book (and trilogy) to everyone who liked and loved the Percy Jackson books and/or is into greek mythology!
And even if you're not one of those things: read it!It is a great paranormal (I would say) read you'll love!

QUICK REVIEW : Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Synopsis Obsidian (book 1)

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something... unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don't kill him first, that is.

Quick Review

It is a great and actionpacked alien-paranormal-maybesupernatural series by an awesome author!
The plots and actions are actionpacked and mostly fast-pasted, the characters have great charasteristic developements, and the romance isn't too much and very cute *-*

Most of the time you're shocked or awed of how something turns out in the end and because all 5 books are out already you don't have a problem with cliffhangers!

It is a great read for everyone who loves this genre and even the ones who don't.

Every book

REVIEW : Where she went by Gayle Forman


If you had a second chance at first love . . . would you take it?

It's been three years since Adam's love saved Mia after the accident that annihilated life as she knew it . . . and three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.

Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, powerful prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.


This was one of these books which has a plot twist near the end and then it'll all be fine. Normally I don't like that because I mostly see those twists coming and than it hasn't this surprise effect but in this book it wasn't like that.
In the middle I was already satisfied even though a little bit sad but then came the twist and I was just like : Oh my gods! That was unexpected.

I liked the way that this book is from Adam's POV and that you can see how the rockstar life is harming him but then Mia's showing up and he becomes the Adam of before again. The one who loves music.
This whole band dipute and Adam with Bryn was a little bit blahh and I didn't like the way they interacted with Adam. But I liked Aldous. He was a nice guy (:

And the newspaper article at the end of the book was so great.
Over all I think Gayle Forman did a great job with both bookd and I don't know in particuilar which book of this duology I like best :D (If I stay review here)


What's your opinion on it ? (:

Well, I tag :  Amelia @ YA Bookologists
Summer @ Miss Fictional

Dark Chocolate - A book that cover a dark topic (domestic violence, abuse, rape, loneliness, death, etc.)

If I stay by Gayle Forman (review here)

I know, I know. 
This isn't "dark".But since I don't read dark books, I must say that's the darkest book I read so far..
And it aswell has to do with death and that's why I chose it.

White Chocolate - Your favourite lighthearted/humorous book

Since you've been gone by Morgan Matson (review here)

It is both mentioned above: lighthearted and humorous.
I laughed in this book many times and
I just flew through it!
A recommendation for everyone who loves lighthearted contamporary
with a bit of humor.

Milk Chocolate - A book that's gotten a lot of hype and you're dying to read

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

The hype is soo big around this book and generally about this series, especially after the second book was released just a few days ago I think.
I am kind of ashamed that I haven't read it yet since it seems that everyone loves it but I just put it of for when I'm in the mood for reading about aliens and stuff like this. But it is on my Birthday/Christmas wishlist !

Chocolate with Caramel Center - A book that made you feel all gooey inside while reading it

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

Maybe an unusual pick for this but because all those
Warnette feels in this book I just was gooey.
Well... maybe that's the reason why I've read this book about
three times this year already and probably will a fourth :D

Wafer-Free KitKat - A book that surprised you lately

Take back the Skies by Lucy Saxon (review here)

It hadn't surprised surprised me but I definitely hadn't thought I'll enjoy it
 that much I haveand especially not that I'd be so emotionally attacked by it.
So yeahh.. it was a surprise.

Snickers - A book you're going nuts about

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Should I really explain this ?
HELLOOO??? It's the next Cassie book in her fantastic shadowhunter world!
And it's coming out NEXT year !!! oooo:
Soooooooo exicted for it *ooo*
And I can't wait to see the actual cover for it ! *---*
Hell! You can see right now I'm going 100% nuts about it! :D

Hot Chocolate with Cream and Marshmallows - A book you would turn to for comfort

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

Another Cassie book, and an awesome one!
Even though it has freaking 730 pages I would read it always when I'm not feeling comfortable. It just makes me laugh, sad and to a fangirl at level 10. :D

Box of Chocolates -  A series you've read that has a wide variety and a little something for everyone

Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas (review here)

It just has action, a little bit of romance, a kick-ass female protagonist and an amazing fantasy world.
So what do you want more?
It's definitely one of my favourites ever and I recommend it to nearly everyone who asks me what they should read (:
So : GO AND READ IT if you haven't already ! :D

That's all (:
Hope you like it and feel free to do it, even if I haven't tagged you *-*
