I will first give you, the unedited review, this is what I felt and thought when I first finished the book. Be wary, it contains so many spoilers you will have to jump to the end of it if you do not want to know what happens at the end of the book. You have been warned.
Well, if you are into romance and historical, and as a plus adult fiction than you most definitely will absolutely love what goes down with Lady Jessica and the rather rakish Mr. Alistair Caulfield
Alright, let me honest with this one… Sylvia Day has an excellent imagination and the few books I have read of her have been really great, she does has a lot of books under her name and reading them all in less than a month would be viable… if only the to-read list with many amazing authors and promising titles was not as long as it is.
Alright, I did not see that coming…
Now, spoiler ahead lads and lasses so beware!
Really! Spoiler from the books, I’m serious! You have been warned.
For real, since We all fans of the books know what happened Then I think it is time we let go of the books for real, Izzy is a serious if hot woman now, Alec is Alec thanks the Angel, Simon is already a vampire kind of fast but sure, no beef with that.
Jace, well I must admit that It happened Dominic Sherwood has won me over, he might not be Jace All the time but the little moments truly make him irresistible and I cannot fight it anymore. As for Kat, she does a nice enough Clary, and now that she is so bold as to kiss Jace, if you have not watched the episode then I’m sorry for the spoiler., it took me by surprise really, first I was like whaaat??? and then, yeah is fine.
Let us begin with this, the book is not for everyone. That said, I loved it!
How many do I say that about a book? Quite often, I know, but if you know me then you know I mostly write here about the books I enjoyed.
Intimate Enemies was difficult for me to really start reading, I had it on my phone for some time actually, and I had read the first page I think, first line and was like, eh, maybe not, even though it was Shana’s and I love how she writes, one of my favourite authors, in case you didn’t figure that one out due to the extensive quotes I have all around from her books, and the fact that most of my reviews are about books by her.
I strayed from the path there, sorry. Back to IE, it has a certain uniqueness to it; the book is set years ago, as in 1170’s more or less, and by the title you can guess that this two clans are not really friendly, until Arion and Lauren are old enough to know they have a thing for each other. Are you planning on reading the book? Don’t worry there is not much spoiler here.
“Tomorrow can take me.” Truest words spoken and we knew it was getting good.
Take Me Tomorrow a truly different twist in the dystopian category.
Let it be known, I am not encouraging drug use because we all know that’s bad, but wouldn’t we want to take a pill that would show you the future? Or at the very least, a glimpse of it?
I confess at first it took me something to get a move on, meaning I had other books in mind and didn’t read a lot of this one but after some time it really started to grasp my attention and I became a bit addicted to it, I wanted to know once and for all what the heck was going on.
Shannon Thompson truly knows how to keep you in suspense, and even though you think you know what’s going to happen or if you guessed something, there’re other moments in the book where you say: What The F…?????
I have to say that dystopian novels are not my first choice when it comes to reading or writing, and perhaps that’s why it took me a while to finish the book but it doesn’t mean that it isn’t good because it is. And when you get it for free as in, a gift from the author and a request to make a review then you feel kind of on a cloud, hey! for me it was a big deal. So thank you for asking Shannon, I truly enjoyed reading about a cute Guy with some trouble and a female character that didn’t make me want to get my hand inside the screen of my phone and shake her.
Like I just said, one of the few heroine who doesn’t take Sh*** from anyone and she kicks ass… from the start. Let’s be honest most of the women in this era of books, or the YA and of the sort, go through 3000 things before they realise, they have to fend for themselves and not make gooey eyes and think of themselves as un-pretty, hey, tell me it doesn’t make you want to screen in frustration? If the answer is no, then you’re lying.
Some spoiler from here on… read if you have already read T.M.T
A Song Of Ice and Fire #5
Since we are not getting A Song of Ice and Fire #6 – The Winds of Winter anytime soon, I might as well write about A Dance with Dragons, which is my favourite book so far in this saga. Especially because of Dany.
On that note, I love this one. It is quite interesting to say the least. If you are mainly a fan on the HBO Tv Series, then good for you that’s nice. However, the books? What can I say? I have a freaking page in this blog solely dedicated to it, doesn’t that say how awesome they are? I confess I started reading the books after season one of GOT but come on, you see the series you go running face first into the books and then… nothing, you stay in limbo because Mr Martin haven’t published the 6th book.
Let us talk about the 5th one, which at least we have read or intent to, thinking about it. You must be thinking about if you are here or you have already spent hours… your eyes burning with exhaustion… shadows under your eyes, while you focus on this book… It has so many little details you end up something like this:
