  • Prismatica on May 04, 2011

    Prismatica is a collection of dark, poetic, short stories. They all had me captivated. I was sitting there with my mom’s iPad on my lap flipping through the pages without knowing what I expected and WOW. It blew me away. They weren’t just random thought of stories they were deep, horrific and… I can’t describe it. It stirred something deep within me and now I’m inspired to write. And all 7 were somewhat connected to one another and Hesler did it well! My favorite of the 7 is Sadie’s Beast. It was short but I still loved it. Hesler has potential to write a full on awesome novel. He’s got the talent for it and I’m looking forward to seeing where writing takes him! I can’t wait to read his upcoming fantasy novels! He deserves more recognition! I’d like to recommend everyone to read his 88 paged e-book! It was creepy and unputdownable a great change in my usual YA paranormal AND I read all in one sitting. :D
  • Illicit Magic (Book 1, Stella Mayweather Series) on Aug. 08, 2011

    Illicit Magic began with a narration that continues on throughout the book. It isn't one of those annoying kind of narration but the kind thats actually very captivating and really makes you listen to what the protagonist has to say as she tells you her story. Our protagonist here is called Stella, she's the type who keeps to herself and has a well collected character. She is English and alone. All her life everyone seems to be scared of her because something always manages to happen when she's around. As she gets old enough to be taken out of foster care. She continues her life working temp jobs here and there while she lives in a very small cheap apartment. Then suddenly, people are after her and want to burn her at the stake. As things begin to unfold, Stella is saved and sent to America for protection and to learn about her true roots. This is by far the best witch book I've read besides Harry Potter of course and trust me I never liked how some authors portray witches in books and because of this book I began to warm up to witches. YAY ME? Aside from our protagonist, we meet the supporting secondary characters who help Stella cope with her new found abilities. One in particular I'm very fond of and appreciate completely! I won't his name because I wouldn't want to ruin it for you. All I'm saying is hes Macho and totally HAWT! Enough of my bickering, I give this book a full on 5/5 stars as I state that this book was unputdownable and simply awesome! I have the second book waiting for me to tackle it and I can't wait to start on it! YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK! *NOT suitable for young readers* http://unputdownablebookies.blogspot.com/2011/08/review-illicit-magic-stella-mayweather.html
  • The Vampire Relationship Guide, Volume 1: Meeting and Mating on Aug. 25, 2011

    An unexpected engrossing read. I mean literally "engrossing". Lafont's writing literally sucked me into the story until the very end of the book. It was a short read but it was a good one. It was funny, steamy, exciting and some how a bit angsty or maybe its just my reaction to things. Anyways, I found the entire story perfect for me since its exactly what I wanted with the right amount of captivation, humor and unputdownableness. I'm definitely getting the next book!
  • Unruly Magic (Book 2, Stella Mayweather Series) on Aug. 30, 2011

    Unruly Magic and everything about it is even better than the first book. I was glad I received a copy of the second book while I was reading the first one for a review. I was so excited and when I finished the first book. I just couldn't wait to read more from Camilla. The story continues where Illicit Magic leaves us. As Stella regains her footing and goes back a few paces in reality by being alone again but at least with a few cheerful neighbors. Her magic grows stronger and she starts doing things without even trying one bit. Which is totally awesome. I love Stella even though her hints indecisiveness when it comes to men sometimes don't really appeal to me. I literally was caught in these virtual pages (I was reading the e-book version). I just couldn't stop reading and only realized that I finished the book when well... when there was nothing left to read. And time really flew out the window while I read this. The story continues and the plot gets better and better and the characters get a little confusing and troublesome but thats all part of the book. This is one of those few paranormal series that manages to pull you into the story and takes you for an even more exciting ride with each book you read. Overall, Camilla Chafer has created an amazing series that I'm looking forward to reading all the way to the end and this is by far the first e-book series I've read and continued to read with the second book and so on. Simply Unputdownable!
  • Bound, An Arelia LaRue Novel #1 YA Paranormal Romance on Jan. 24, 2012

    I was once looking around Bound's Goodreads pages and found a lot of mixed reviews about this book. What I found on Goodreads made me want to read and decide for myself and well I did! The good reviews I agree with the bad ones not so much. I don't really get why they didn't like it at all. This is something new for me, especially in the Young Adult Genre, I've only read about voodoo in a non-ya book just that one time last year but never read a book solely based on a protagonist who's gifted with the powers of voodoo. I didn't know why, but I really connected with Arelia. I don't know if its her courage, wittiness or her will to stay away from people (especially hot boys who are off-limits) or the fact that she's bestfriends with a snob. Okay, fine! I admit, I couldn't stand Sabrina (Arelia's Bestfriend). It amuses me to actually find such a character like her in a book. She made me laugh a few times at how badly conceited she is. I know a lot of people hate this book for her especially. But for me, I found it amusing. You've gotta love these type of people. Haha. I blame my endless patience for this point. The plot had its predictable bits but aside from that it was flowing, not too complex and all together good. Overall, Bound was an excellent read about a different aspect of paranormalcy with unique intriguing characters, a wonderful plot and juicy man-candy. Gimme more now! :D
  • Earth Blend on Sep. 01, 2012

    The characters and plot of the Blend Trilogy or at least the first two books of the trilogy were unique and carefully written. Though the environment and how things were mended and written were too much like every other sci-fi paranormal book I've read out there. Human Blend started off with our protagonist moving into an unknown place on her own after years in captivity. I'm surprised how different the plot was. It was morbid and dark to say the least. It's definitely something for the older Young Adult scene. The type of paranormal beings in the trilogy were somewhat a mix of alienish/fae/elven. It was different and sort of freaky and makes me think about how author come up with this stuff (I say this in a good way, not bad). Julie, the protagonist is a little bit of a annoyance at first, because she tends to "accidentally" fall on men's lips. But after awhile you know why she does that. Strictly by the name of the first book, "Human Blend", the book revolves around Human Blenders and how things work with them. While in Earth Blend, the second book of the series, speaks about how Earth Blenders helped produce and breed Human Blenders. The story in this installment was a little bit disturbing. The second book begins by focusing on how Eli (a constant character in the first book) was brought amongst plain humans and such. It's really interesting to watch how these science fiction characters Lori came up with came to be. The trilogy makes a reader think, what if, we're not alone and we've been forced to breed an entirely different species and only a select few know about it. One word. FREAKY. Though, I haven't read the third book, I can say that the series is interesting, unique, annoying sometimes (because of the characters). But it is a good read for the Young Adult Science Fiction junkie out there. And I give both the books in the trilogy I've read, 3 stars.
