Biography

"I would rather be ashes than dust; I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot; I would rather be in a superb meteor, every atom of me in a magnificent glow than in a sleepy and permanent planet; the proper function of man is to live, not to exist; I should not waste my days in trying to prolong them; I shall USE my time." ~Jack London

  • The Curse Girl on June 02, 2012
    (no rating)
    I love Fairy-tales, especially Disney movies because of the sugar coated sweet stuff. I really loved Beauty and The Beast because of how strong, caring and smart Belle was. She didn't just want a man like Gaston, who was handsome and strong, she wanted someone to love. Beauty or Bee for short, reminded me entirely of Belle and sometimes the book was reminiscent of the Disney movie with all the door slamming and book reading, but it was still enjoyable. Will was hilarious in that cute sarcastic way. Rose was so cute and I felt so bad for her. The characters were amazing, I hope theirs some sort of follow-up on Storm because he's amazing. Loved it

  • Few Are Chosen, K'Barthan Trilogy: Part 1 on June 02, 2012

    This book literally has a fiery start He really has no luck, burning the entire block ;) . The Pan of Hamgee is a fun, quirky character with confidence issues. However, having a low self-esteem didn't make him a wimpy character- It actually made him braver in the funniest ways. He also happens to be a fugitive on the run with extreme paranoia problems add a criminal mastermind and crazy power hungry lord to that and you've got a great story. There wasn't a single unlikable character in this book, I even liked the monsters! Well...maybe not Big Merv Before he changed that is I love fantasy books, so this was perfect for me mostly because of the weird world that was K'Barth. There were a couple words that I stumbled across but they solved themselves and all was well. Warning: The book leaves you hanging and slightly insane for the next one. Thank god its not over:

    Wow....just wow...It's been so long since I've read something so innocent that doesn't have a plot line revolving around romance but something bigger. The Cover: Was my biggest problem. It comes off as a book middle-schoolers would read not the type of book that holds a story for any age group. If the cover gets redone, I'd suggest something more interesting, covers are eye candy after all. The Characters: Stella and Issac were bold, noble, brave and courageous. At times I'd wished Stella had more confidence and faith in herself, since she would resort to crying under pressure but towards the end I figure she's fixed that fluke. Issac was like a superhero, daring to gamble his own life if it meant the safety of a few loyal prisoners. I think Stella got the short end of the stick when she got a Pegasus and Issac got a dragon I did not trust Rikenzia one bit when Issac first met her, she was too good to be true. I still don't trust her but I'm clearly overruled Since she's getting a frickin phoenix! The story was rich, detailed, exhilarating and true to its nature. The type of story that has you speaking to the book like the book can hear you. I yelled, laughed, hollered, swore and encouraged. Can't wait to read the next one! Hopefully they'll kick Gershon's filthy behind :)
  • The Willows on June 19, 2013

    Krystal McLaughlin's The Willows was like the Uninvited meets Morganville Vampires. I say this because I HATED The Uninvited with a passion because it was full of nonsense that sometimes passed as a scary story but it was really about some guy who went sleeping through the town so when his daughter went to visit, all her love interests were half-related to her. And I chose Morganville because I LOVE Morganville Vampires; Morganville casts a different light on Vampires than Twilight and all those other copycat books. That was The Willows for me. There wasn't a lot in terms of realism in this book. People thought Evie was weird for not bouncing right back after her parents AND her brother died. Her boyfriend expected her to make-out with him and act like nearly her entire family HADN'T disappeared/died in the course of a couple months. Plus Evie herself was that stupid girl who hears a strange noise and then proceeds to walk towards it shouting “Who's there?” You'd expect her to be a little more cautious after finding out her brother disappeared doing the things she was doing. Another thing I didn't like was all the guys Evie managed to get a hold of in such a short amount of book. At least in House of Night Zoey got to be a slut throughout 15 (17? 20? I lost count after a while) books. Though don't get me wrong, extremely grateful that this isn't a H.O.N rerun, oh god the horror. Now for the good things. The Willows was fabulously fresh with a completely different outtake on vampires. The gory, mysterious parts were frightening and truly well-written. The Willows did scare the shit out of me on the creep factor, I mean manic laughing, random weather changes, crazy bloodsucking stalkers, what's not to love? It was an engaging book, a pretend-to-be-studying-while-secertly-reading book.
