I Love Reading of Course... Reviewing Books & trying to make sense of all the words in my head & turnning them into some sort of legible story..lol
Currently working on Le trou de la mort which translates to The Pit Of Death, it's just getting started. my other story that's just sitting there is a YA romance between a drug dealer & prostitute... & it's not what you might think.

  • Aventurine Heart on July 09, 2012

    *Some Little Spoilers Flittered Though Out, So You Have Been Warned! * Alexa Mayfair is about to be just another high-school graduate when a tornado strikes her hometown of Fortraven, almost killing her. This one incident changes everything Alexa has ever thought, felt or know & she struggles to grasp this new & baffling world.   Saved my an Angel, Doomed by a Devil & in Love with The Fallen Alexa must Must Push the boundaries of Common Sense & fall whole heartedly into love if she's to survive. Carol really brought back the feelings of first love which will emerge young & old,  while avoiding being condescending & playing into too much teenage angst.  "The sun broke through the clouds & appeared to burn them away in a matter of seconds. Warmth returned to the chilled air but my body still felt cold & numb. Droplets turned to diamonds on each blade of grass. I closed my eyes in an effort to change what was in front of me but when I opened them again the scene remained the same -  an empty space where he had stood"   It's the kind of book to read while lounging in a hammock sipping ice tea on holidays.........I would label it as "put-down-able" but that doesn't make it a bad book in ways sort of the opposite it was quite a refreshing read that I could brisk through in my luxurious spare time through out the day. The pocket size chapters just added to the appeal.  The Writing styles flows nicely & is easy to read, while still being engaging, tho the ending did tend to drag on...But the ending was juicy enough to want more! Alexa is a delightful, kind hearted & amicable recluse. I personally found her to be one of the most realistic  & relatable female leads that I've  read in YA in some time.....l.She's by no means perfect but that's part of the charm I guess.
  • The Soul's Mark: FOUND (The Soul's Mark, #1) on July 23, 2012

     You Can Not Run From Destiny The Souls Mate:FOUND Has made me fall in love with vampires again, I'm still have a love/hate relationship with YA novels but hey I'm super happy because I haven't read a good (non adult) vamp  novel since twilight, I'm more of a shifter kinda girl but I read the synopsis then I was hooked, I just had to read it & it didn't disappoint it actually got me quite addicted & I'm soooooooo hoping there's more in the series!...no more like demanding more in the series at least more of Eric.  There's not much to put down that synopsis hasn't already said So I'll just give my honest opinion. :) The Book started off really great, The characters were engaging & enjoyable. Even tho you knew what was happening early on, you still wanna know more. I was defiantly going 5 stars but towards the middle near end I became confused then that confusion turned to annoyance. The book was written in third person but was set solely on Amelia the female lead which became frustrating I wanted a greater understanding of the characters & their interactions with each other. while I'm at it I do have one more winge There's no Sex!...I'm not talking Erotica Its YA so that's not gonna happen but for a relationship to blossom & be realistic There's needs to be a bit more sexual love/hate tension to make it more believable, basically When you don't know wether you want kiss them or punch them The Heroine: Amelia was a fresh take on a female lead..if only for her curly locks (I'm naturally curly so I love lead females that are too... Crazy I know but it makes her more relatable) Strong & Confident just want a female lead Needs to be but she was also stubborn, emotional & not Submissive! (Thank God!) The Hero: Mich the Male lead was a bit over protective & dare I say it possessive ( but not to the extreme some books take it). His ridiculously hot & despite his faults his a compassionate & loving character. The Hottie: Eric....omg his not a total lead but as you probably guessed already I'm in love! His just the kinda guy I go for insanely hot, with Crazy Hair (mmmmmmm), maybe not the smartest guy around but with a heart of gold & a wicked sense of humor!   The Ending was the perfect mix, in a way it was what I expected but at the same time I was surprised. All in all it was a great book with a great story line plot & characters, it's just could of been so much more. Ashley did a great job & like I said before I really hope fore more books.
  • The Soul's Mark: FOUND (The Soul's Mark, #1) on Dec. 21, 2012

    You Can Not Run From Destiny "The first thing you should know is that soulmates are real. They are not just some romantic idea. We are made for one person and one person alone." The Souls Mate:FOUND Has made me fall in love with vampires again, I'll still having a love/hate relationship with YA novels but hey I'm super happy because I haven't read a good vamp novel since Dracula, I'm more of a shifter kinda girl but I read the synopsis then I was hooked, I just had to read it and it didn't disappoint it actually got me quite addicted. I was soooooooo hoping there was more in the series!...no more it was more demanding, demanding more in the series and thank god those demands have been heard in the form of The Soul's Mark:HUNTED! Ashley has a wonderful way of making the reader feel the characters emotions, I seriously could not stop giggling, it was terrible & those feelings of first crush's ekkkkkkk so embarrassing! "Hot, she thought. Green hair, hot? Well, on him, yes, it was really hot." I think I forgot to mention in my first review how original & totally epic the Soul's mark is, like the concept I mean it's has to be one of the most original concepts I've ever read + ash pulled it off perfectly. I can't believe I've never thought of it before, a vampire's Soul linked to a human... it just makes so much damn sense! & it's quite romantic. "He was close enough that she could feel the heat of his skin. But even with this closeness, Amelia felt as if they were painfully far away from each other. She felt a tug, as if she was being pulled towards him by an invisible chain and without realizing it, she slid closer. He reached out, brushing away her tears and leaving behind a sizzling trail of sparks where his fingers had touched her skin. Her heart beat erratically, thumping like a jackhammer." All tho i liked all the characters each in there own special way, I'd have to say the character I loved most was Amelia, she just had that crazy, lovable, loyal charm. The Heroine: Amelia was a fresh take on a female lead..if only for her curly locks (I'm naturally curly so I love lead females that are too... Crazy I know but it makes her more relatable) Smart Strong & Confident just want a female lead Needs to be but she was also stubborn, emotional & not Submissive! (Thank God!) The Hero: Mich the Male lead was a bit over protective & dare I say it possessive ( but not to the extreme some books take it). His ridiculously hot & despite his faults his a compassionate & loving character. The Hottie: Eric....omg his not a total lead but as you probably guessed already I'm in total book lust! His just the kinda guy I go for insanely hot, with Crazy Hair (mmmmmmm), maybe not the smartest guy around but with a heart of gold & a wicked sense of humor! Ashley Did a great job of weaving this light hearted romantic novel together with a devious paranormal twist, I'd defiantly recommend it to all lovers of YA, Vamps or just anyone! "And she loved the way he made her feel, the way her heart beat when he was near, the electricity she felt at his touch, and the nervous butterflies he always caused in her stomach."
  • Riley's Curse, A Moon's Glow Prequel on Jan. 09, 2013

    3.5 Stars Christina did a really good job writing riley's curse. It cant have been easy writing through a males point of view, especially a teenaged males point of view but she really pulled it off, even if at times the narration seemed flat. I loved seeing Nate grow,  evolve and go through what most people would associate with becoming a werewolf, he felt real human emotions, regret, loss, self pity, anger & loneliness my only complaint would be that sometimes I felt that the story Was rushed particularly at  key moments. Riley's Curse isn't a full novel it's a novella that gives some back ground info on Nathaniel Riley, so in that respect it very much delivers what it promised and now I'm all clued up on the werewolf cutie Nate & I'm off to read Riley's Secret! Would I recommend it?  Yes (but if I had the choice again I would read Riley's secret first) Would I re-read it?  Probably not. Am I Excited about the Second Book?  Very Much So.
