Books I have Read this year an the Reviews Cont’d

Book #18: Teardrop (Teardrop #1) By; Lauren Kate ****

This came from my review via Good reads.

Oki doki so far in the prologue all I can think about is ‘Heroes’  favorite line in season one “save the cheerleader, save the world”.
Edited 1/8/2014
Oki doki I finished the book. All in all I liked how this book was for the start of a series. I loved the characters excpecially Ander and the twins. Rhoda reminded me way to much of my step mom and I couldn’t help but roll my eyes everytime the shrink was mentioned in her dialogue. Only thing that really got to me was not enough one on one time with brook (when he was normal) and Eureka and same for Ander and Eureka. The Seerbears needed to have more roll in this one and also I thought Anders should have given alittle more insight to the “myth” cuz honestly if I was in Eureka’s shoes I would have been “Look buddy you need to tell me why I need to trust you and tell me what the heck is going on. I can’t just for off of ‘you need to trust me, your life depends on it.’ I do I know your not the threat and trying to turn me against the friend that I have had forever?”

Book #19: Cursed By; Jennifer L. Armentrout ****

Before Reading:   By reading the book description I’m expecting a Scubbius (the mythical female creature that sits onto of men’s chest and stealing their soul…in this case killing the person by a single touch). Also I’m expecting a more girly-er version of James Patterson’s Maximum Ride Series.
As I read:
CHAPTER 1- I couldn’t help but get a Twilight feel for the last half of the chapter. My first thought of the characters,
~Dustin is a total arse
~ Adam is friend-zone as of NOW OR it’s going to be a Jacob, Bella, Edward type love triangle that I really don’t want to read about
~ Ember reminds me of me in high school gloves and all. Only instead of Frankestien I was called Smurf cuz my skin turns blue
~ Olivia is such a pure character Definately my favorite character besides Ember.
~ mysterious random guy in the corner that I’m hoping doesn’t start glittering when the sun hits him
CHAPTER 2- glad the book Ember is reading is NOT Wuthering Hieghts but the portrait of Darius Grey, finally some originality. And about time Dustin died onward to Chapter 3.
After Reading
It was  very well written over all and I loved the plot twist didn’t expect that honestly I thought it was all going to be reversed and that the coins symbolized a secret service of the gifted that wanted to stop the facility

Book #20:  Dark Horse (The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy #1) By; Nora Roberts *****

Before this book I had never read Nora Roberts books, I have collected them over the years but had never read them. At the library the librarian recommended his book to me and told me to tell her what I thought about it. I had brought it to work and read it to the elderly lady I was looking after. She and I had stayed up all night reading it back and forth to each other because she had a copy of her own and she had no one to talk about the book too; so that made the books experience so much more magical. I thought it was going to be a scary but boy was I wrong, I loved every waking moment f it and devoured it in two nights flat. I would definitely recommend this book not only because I love books that deal with Ireland or Scotland but because it was so detailed that it felt like you were there with the characters. I will definitely be reading the rest of the trilogy.

Book #21: Miss. Peregine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss. Peregine’s Peculiar Children #1) By; Ransom Riggs ****

Honestly I thought this book would be about Miss Peregrine abusing peculiar (special needs) children back during WW2. BOY was I wrong!!!! All in all good book loved the characters and the plots twists and turns. Only thing I didn’t like was how slow and monotone it seemed to be. But for a first novel Ransom Riggs did an exquisite job.

Book #22: Covet (Fallen angels #1)  By; J.R. Ward ****

I got this book from booksfree.com and I got it through the snail mail. After a month of having it in my possession (lol) I finally read it. Honestly, the only reason I gave it a 4 is because there were so many grammatical errors in the print. All in all I loved the story line and Adrian and Eddie were my favorite. I imagined Jim as Mike off of Burn Notice.  Really wish J.R. Went more I depth with what Jim was before constructioning she went threw everyone else’s story BUT his…Or did I miss this part. All in all I liked this book as a start of the series but I like her black dagger brotherhood series SO much better.

Book#23: The Pagan Lord (The Warrior Chronicles/ Saxon Stories #7) By; Bernard Cornwell

After picking this book up at random from the library I found out that it was the 7th book in the series so I felt like I was missing a few plot points. so to give this book a rating I would find unfair.

Book #24: Dark Rival (Masters of Time #2) By; Brenda Joyce *****

Holy Cow, THAT was intense. Kept me frustrated threw the whole book making me want to hurry up and finish it. I loved the Complex disasters. I love how Allie was in love with all three of the Royce’s and I loved how her mother got tied in. Only thing I really wish Brenda Joyce did differently was put more Of Royce’s point of view in there so we the readers knew what the heck was going threw mr. Medeval’s brain, cuz his actions left you just as ‘in the dark’ as the heroine. And honestly I thought Brenda was going to do a major plot twist there at the end when Allie met Bridghe and tried talking Bridghe into staying with Rauri. I think that would have bit her in the arse Royally. But all in all Definately loved it and I will be finishing the series as fast as I can get my hands on her books from the library.

Book #25: Savage Secrets (Savage Series #3) By; Cassie Edwards ****

Loved the story line. Characters where well put together. I did find the sex scenes to be alittle repetitive. And in other places alittle awkward. But all in all looking past it all I loved it.

Book #26: Dark Embrace(Rose Trilogy #1/ Masters of time #3) By; Brenda Joyce ***

we get it your son died and you want revenge and you are not wanting a relationship at the moment Brie give up on the pushy-ness and let Aidan do his revenge thing and the be by his side and the. Once he is still alive then true feelings will emerge. Jeez.i couldn’t finish the book sorry.

Book #27: Beauty and the Werewolf  (Five Hundred Kingdoms #6) ***

I liked the last three chapters of this book to be honest. The characters were REALLY complexed. There seemed to be holes in the story and some “are you really that dense?” Moments from the characters.

Book # 28: The Iron Hunt  (Hunter Kiss #1) Majorie M. Liu *

Good story plot but how it was presented was terrible and choppy and the grammar nazis would have a field day. Would exspect this from a fan fiction novelist not a “professional” author. Seems like a poorly written and edited first draft, on top of being lost throughout the whole book(grant it it is the first book in the series). As well as, to many unanswered questions for it as it said being the first book in the series at least give us some background as far as the main characters and why the demons were locked away. So all in all 1 1/2 stars only because I liked raw, zee, and aaz and the fact that the last few chapters finally sparked my interest.

Book #29: Tiger Eye (Dirk & Steele #1) By; Majorie M. Liu ****

This story was a lot better then The Iron Hunt. I loved the idea of a tiger shapeshifter genie like story it was very different.

Book #30: Dreamcatcher By; Stephen King *

I hated this book, if  I wanted to have a detailed monologue a someones poop and farts I would have gone to work and asked the residents there!!!! definitely not Mr. King’s strong book.

Book #31 & #32: Marked & Betrayed (House of Night #1&2) By; P.C. Cast ***

I started this book back in highschool then, I recently picked it back up and reread the first book again and forgot how much I liked the series so far.

Book #32: Crave (Fallen Angels #2) By; J.R. Ward *****

This book was way better then the first!!! Loved how the characters have grown just a little bit more and the plot twist was amazing. It was morbidly appealing that the bad guy won in the end rather then each book the good guys won in the end!!

Book #33: Moon Called (Mercy Thompson #1) By; Patrica Briggs *****

Loved this book can’t wait til I read the other books. I think this is the best werewolf series I have ever read.

Books I Have Read This Year and the Reviews

Sorry, I haven’t posted y’all; between a broken finger, failing at trying to save a puppy from parvo, then the holidays have came and now I’m running around like a chicken with its head cut off. So this year I had made a goal for myself, to read at least 50 books. Well, I have read 32 of the 50 books and I only have….3 weeks left of this year….Yea I don’t think I’m going to be finishing my goal…OOPS!!!!

So these are the reviews of the books I have read this year. They are in no order just the first book off of my good reads list when I see them!!!!

Book #1: Guilty Pleasures (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #1) By; Laurell K. Hamilton ***

** spoiler alert ** Vampires, Zombies and werewolves are now everyday knowledge and now are being made to get a green card. Anita Blake is the executioner, that is according to the vampires. Anita Blake is an animator who works alongside the boys in blue of St. Louis. After getting in to deep with an investigation that points to a serial killer whose M.O. is that of the living undead variety, Anita catches the attention of the Master vampires. One master vampire in particular helps her throughout the story even though he is not in the story for long.
My first thoughts when picking it up was that the cover was beautiful, reading the cover I thought well this is different. AND THAT IT WAS!!!! When I first started reading it I thought it was very similar to True Blood as far as Jean Claude’s club called Guilty Pleasures. Getting through the first half of the book I could not get over the Were rats and one of them making the comment of wanting to have his way with Anita. Could have gone all day without that visual!!!
I think that the book could have gone more in depth with what Jean Claude did to Anita in the beginning. There were a lot of holes where Mrs. Hamilton should have filled in and then where she did take the time to detail about the scene it was pointless and she spent to long on the scene. All in all, it was an ok book. I will be reading the others in the series just to see if it gets better throughout the books.

Book #2: Midnight Sun (Twilight 1.5) BY; Steohanie Meyer *

This book was the worst!!! I know it was only a draft but dear god that was like pulling eye teeth!!! There was no point to have this story if it wasn’t going to be more intuitive, she definitely should have finished it rather then throw a silent fit and get all butt hurt about it slipping through and being thrown on the internet!!! I would have finished it and held my head high and made it be a Kick @$$. She was very repetitive and Everywhere at one point she made my head hurt with Jacob popping up outta no where!!!! honestly, I would have read it again if she’d finish it!!!

Book #3- 16:Black Dagger brotherhood series By; J.R. Ward *****

Definitely my favorite series of the year!!! The characters were phenomenal, the plots are amazing!!! the Twists and turns holy cow!!!! this series will leave you on the edge of your seat and then will make you want to throw the book at the wall. I would definitely will recommend this book to anyone; male, female, gay, straight, Even the ladies at my church.. ok maybe not but y’all get the gist.

Book #17: Towering By; Alex Flinn **

I Really wanted to like but, the found interesting was the ending. Towering was a revision of Rapunzel with a modern twist  it. I can’t really remember this story because I had made my self read it for I loved Alex’s book Beastly before it was a movie.

 

Criminal Minds season one

Criminal Minds season one

Ok so I know this tv series has been out forever the first season was aired in 2004-2005. I have seen this season before but never in order I alway end up catching reruns on A&E or Spike TV (I am in no way affiliated with their network and no I am not getting paid for reviews from them). So onward….TO VICTORY!!!!! No but seriously let’s get to the good stuff.

Summary
Criminal Minds is about the FBI Behavior Analysis Unit, who “Psycho analyzes” crime scenes through out America and one down in Mexico.

Characters

Jason Gideon who is portrayed by Mandy Patinkin, is the best profiler who has PTSD. He is called in by Agent Hotchner to clear him to proceed as a behavior profiler.

Aaron “Hotch” Hotchner who is portrayed by Thomas Gibson is the unit chief of the BAU and is the only agent who is married with a kid.

Elle Greenway is played by Lola Glaudini she is the newest member of the team who came from Seattle, Washington after the first episode. And is secretly fluent in Spanish.

Derek Morgan is played by Shemar Moore (who by the way is HAWT!!!) specializes in fixations and obsessive behaviors. He is Hotch’s intern to be next Unit Chief. Has a big brother effect on Dr. Spencer Reid and is very flirtatious with the ladies especially with punk rocker Penelope Garcia, however this relationship is more playful then serious.

Dr. Spencer Reid is perceived by Matthew Grey Gubler (another cutie in a nerdy sorta way….I’d date him 😉 ) he is the Brainiac of the team with an IQ of 187 and can read 20,000 words a minute with an eidetic memory (whatever that is Reid). Is also the youngest member of the team and was hand picked by Gideon. He has 2 bachelor degrees and 3 PhDs. Not only is he the brains of the group but he specializes in Statistics and geographical profiling.

Jennifer “JJ” Jareau protected by A.j. Cook works closely with the police force and the media. Even though we don’t know a lot about her character we do know she collected butterflies as a kid and loves the Red Skins.

Penelope Garcia is the spunky tech geek analyst working for the BAU is played by Kristen Vangness. She is also a very good hacker and obviously knows her stuff… I would but her as the FBI version of “Abbey” (from NCIS).

favorite characters
Dr. Spencer Reid (all time favorite)
Derek Morgan (come on y’all he’s Smexy!!!)
Penelope Garcia (I love her spunkiness)

favorite episodes in season one
Episode 14 “Riding the Lightning”
Episode 16 “The Tribe”

All time favorite episode in season one
Episode 16 “The Tribe” loved it cuz I love the Native American culture and I Love BlackWater’s (Gregory Cruz) voice.

season finally
Honestly I loved it and hated the final episode. Because it’s in two parts, the first being the ending of season one and the second part being the beginning of the second season. Which it did leave of at a good cliff hanger.

stars
***** of *****

Ok so I kinda started this blog without telling you who I am. My name is Kimberlyn Storm and I will be 21 at the end of November. I am a homeschool graduate, and I graduated when I was 16. I am now a CNA (for those who don’t know that is a certified nursing assistant) as well as an EKG technician. My dream job is to be a librarian, a writer of my own books, and an editor for others (I hate editing my own work cuz in my mind it’s write and therefore is grammatically correct unless it’s like “the dog over the moon” type stuff). I’m married to a wonderful guy who is in the military. We have 2 four legged creatures running around; one is a husky/Shepard mix who is a year and a half and is a menace. Her name is Willow. The other is a three month old boxer mix who is just the sweetest thing your ever meet. I have never had a better dog then him ever! My husband M has named him Grizzly. So yea there is a little autobiography about me, I really kinda felt stupid just posting about Criminal Minds and that was it for the night. So I tagged on an about me….Well you’ve read it, ATLEAST I hope y’all did. Anyway I’m rambling so I’m going to get off of here so I can read and watch some more movies. in the immortal words of Dr. Who ALLONSY!!!!!

A Night with a Vampire

A Night with a Vampire

I was in a dark den, the only light was from the crackling of a fire place in a hearth, that took up the whole wall. The crackle of the fire were like bullets bouncing around in my brain, groaning I put my head in my hands.
“I’m glad to see you awake.” A deep voice spoke in front of me. Snapping my head towards the voice, only to feel like electricity shoot down my spine. “Here, for your headache. I’m sorry for the bump on your head.” A bottle of water and ibuprofen appeared in front of me. Guzzling the water down without a second thought. Then it clicked, last night’s events came back to me. Martha my best friend in the world, had set me up with a guy from her office as a blind date. The guy decided to bailed at the last minute and another male that was inhumanly gorgeous slid into the seat across to me. We chatted for a while and ate dinner, he said since we were both alone we could keep each other company as we enjoyed our meal. From what I can pull from the fuzzy memories his name wish Silas and he was from somewhere in Europe… Ireland??? Scotland????
“You were the one who sat with me after my date bailed.” My voice croaked unattractively. The man sat back in a high backed red winged chair, his dark brown hair reached down to his hips and glowed ember from the dance of the fire. Silas’ angular face was adorn with ruby eyes and dusty pink plump lips that had fangs protruding from under his upper lip. I knew that those abnormally elongated canines should have scared me but oddly I’m calm.
“You must forgive me but, I have glamoured you, so you wouldn’t run away without me able to explain. See, I am old and I have yet to find a companion to tell my stories to….until last night.” Silas said leaning closer as he settles his weight on a cane that had a crystal dark blue orb on top that was set onto a twist of metal vines.
“Glamoured??? And how the hell are you old, you look a day over twenty-five.” I exclaimed. Silas’ chuckle sounded like hot chocolate on a freezing winter morning, warm and kind. His warmth stayed out of his cold lonely eyes. Only thin did he was older then he looked.
“Glamour in is a basic technique of my kind that can either erase memories or impels a person to do something at a vampires will.” Silas watched me as he explained, he must have seen my eyes explode out of my head. Because seconds later I was soothed by a sense of warm bubble bath. “I was turned after my last gladiator fight in 402 A.D. I have been a gladiator, a Viking, a highlander, a king, a prince, a general and many other statuses…. Just no one to share this lonely god forsaken world with.” Silas grew grim and silent until he looked at me with a longing in his eyes, “please will you give me your name again, you just look like someone I have met once and I don’t want to mix you two.”
“My name is Christine.” I blushed not knowing why I was all of a sudden attracted to this man whom I should have been terrified of ’cause you have Stockholm Syndrome stupid, you just got done studying this in pysch 101′ I mentally kicked myself.
“Christine…such a fitting name for a beautiful companion.” He seemed to forget that I was there and was talking to himself ‘See he’s a delusional psychopath. How do you know those teeth aren’t glued to his head?’ My internal self yelled at me.
“Why do you need a companion?” His head snapped towards me as he snarled at me ‘wait for it his fang will fly out any moment if he keeps on doing that.’ Putting up my hands in an ‘I surrender’ “easy buddy I’m not food. I’m just asking questions.”
“Because, my darling I am dying and my people have had companions so they can spend their last moments feeling like they belong somewhere in their darkest time. Someone who will listen to the stories of their life.” He played with his cane like a kid would with a basketball, dropping it a few millimeters off of the floor just to pull it back up again. ‘Keep talking stupid, it will stall him out so someone will notice you are missing.’
“Why are these stories so important?” His response was the saddest thing I have ever heard, his facial expression looked like he lost everything even thought he lived in a million dollar house and looked to have everything anyone would have ever wanted.
“Everyone has their reasons mine is not so much for the stories rather then just for someone to be there with me as I die and know that they don’t see me as a monster. I have lived for one thousand six hundred and twenty seven years and everyone I have ever loved has all died and turned to dust in the ground, or feared me and ran way or was torn from me by others who thought I was a monster. I have waited for this day for one thousand six hundred and ten years two months, three weeks, six days, twenty three hours and thirty seconds. Only because I knew that when I transpired I would have finally found my companion that knew my every betrayal, every love affair…Every person I have saved….each that I have murdered… And not be afraid of me.” Without knowing I had leaned in until my hand caressed his, I found tears running down his cheeks and a look like he was reliving every moment of his long life.
“You really have it down to a science there don’t cha.” I whispered trying to easy the mood that laid so thickly around us that I swear that if I moved any part of my body again it will send a ripple through the atmosphere. I only got a slight scuff for my comment as he stared at our hands in appreciation. “Please Silas, tell me a story” my internal self slapped her forehead but I just ignored her and went with my gut. Who is to say that vampires don’t exists, sure he maybe crazy and may kill me but this man will just have to prove the latter. “Prove to me you are not a psychotic sociopath that wants to drain me dry for some fetish.” He lips then slowly spread into a grin revealing those pearly whites “nu uh not proof enough those could be glued on. Or some dentist filed them that way.” His fangs retracted like the vampires you see on True Blood, to tell you the truth I was terrified now and hoped that I didn’t show it.
“I have to hear it from you, Christine. Or it won’t be offical.” Looking at him confused he explained, “it’s how a companionship with vampires work. No, paper work just your word. A “I solemnly swear” type bound by your voice.”
“First take your glamour off of me, wouldn’t you want me willingly then knowing that you are forcing someone to be with you. If Merriam-Webster changed his definition on acceptance and understanding in the last few hours then we are screwed.” At that he laughed a full hearty laugh.
“I knew choosing you was the right choice, Christine. You haven’t been glamoured since I told you cuz then what was the point cuz then you would be just causing more pain and loneliness then true companionship.” ‘Well he does seem logical and his fangs did freakishly vanish….now we gotta check you out to see if your sanity is still intact.’ As I argued with my self, Silas sat there silently waiting for my decision as he gently rubbed his thumb along the back of my hand where they were still caressing his. ‘Fine, if I get out of this alive I will go get a cat scan.’
“Then yes, Silas….I, Christine vow to be your companion.”

Hello everybody this is just the first of ‘A Night with a Vampire’ sorry if this sounds like a ninth grader’s best. Artist doodle, I on the other hand piece random words together and come up with a scene that is in my head. Whether it makes sense or not. Any-who every Wednesday night I will try my best to write a new installment of Silas and Christine. If you have any ideas on the era he should tell please don’t hesitate to contact me. The picture I have no clue who it is from but if you (the reader) drew it I love it and I will totally take it down if you want it to be taken down or if you want credit for it that is fine no problem just tell me and I will do it. Again sorry for the grammatical and sentence structural errors honestly I only spent two hours on it and didn’t do anything fancy to it. I’m going to put a link down here to a YouTube video (Breathe into me by RED) love the song reminds me of how Silas sees Christine as being his breath of life. So yea I guess I will probably do this on Wednesday as well. I’m almost done with season one of Criminal Minds so keep check back for a review on that and more. I also have made a group and page on Facebook called darkestXrose blog if y’all want to follow and if you can’t contact me here, you can Definately contact me there. So yea y’all have a good night and

I forgot

I forgot

Sorry everyone I totally forgot it had this and I wanted to start up a new one. So blonde moment number 692!
So anyway movies I have seen in the last week:
Nymphomanic: Volume one
A self- diagnosed nymphomaniac reveals a lifetime of sexual experiences to a man who saves her from being beaten in an ally.

I can see why it got 2 stars on Netflix it was horrible! I didn’t even finish it I fell asleep not even a quarter of the way through it and M watched the rest without me, since he has a thing for if I start a movie I’m going to finish it. I before I fell asleep through it, the girl is laying in the alley and looks homeless rather than beaten. And the old man I thought was more like a therapist rather then stranger. I mean come on who in there right mind tells a stranger about how addicted to sex they are. And in one story she tells the little girls turn son the bath and throws water on the floor and takes there under garments off (there clothes remain on) and they lay there moving back and forth in the water on there bellies. While watching this my thoughts were what pervert let their kids do this scene and what pervert is paying them and others to think this crap up. And another thing as to how does going back and forth on your tummy how those girls did get them off? And why didn’t the parents seem concern? All in all, this movie was stupid, utterly stupid, so my rating is .5 out of 5 stars. I mean not even worth actually making a movie about it.

Old boy
After being unaccountably held captive for years, Joe Doucett is suddenly released. Now, his only mission is to hunt down and punish his captors.

One netflix it has a 4 or 5 star rating and it Definately deserved it. M picked it out once I woke back up on Sunday very good. Has a few big actors in it as well as a good twisty turns plot. The plot just really is amazing, at one moment your are like ok is this going to be one of those movies that the main actor is trapped into this room for the next few years??? But then you see him training by punching a wall or the metal door, then writing letters to the daughter that he only sees on the news or on a hit real crime tv show. Or trying to get out. When he does get out holy cow Every day CEO turns into a mean green fighting machine bad ass it was amazing then he finds this girl starts falling in love then BAM PLOT TWIST new Villian and the guys story and the reasoning behind the kidnaping totally didn’t see this one coming. First movie I have seen that had this type of story line in it (not telling you I want y’all to see it and find out and then tell me your thoughts about it.) I give this movie a 5 out of 5 stars.

Dexter season 7
Thank god Deb finally figures that Dexter is a serial killer. But Dexter’s blonde haired love interests are really starting to get old and repetitive. I love Dexter don’t get me wrong I still love Dexter and the ending WOW. I give the series a 5 out five stars

Mind Hunters
Sequestered on a remote island, a training program for a nefarious FBI division called Mind Hunters is actually har boring a serial Killer.

My thoughts on this “pre ugly Val Kilmer ” movie (i love Val Kilmer as an actor I really do but he was hot back in the batman day now like everyone else he has aged) was very very good loved all the actors. I gave it a four on Netflix just because the lady who played in cold case you thought the movie was going to go into her background more through out the movie rather then at the very end. They did however hint and mentioned bits and pieces of what happened to her. But all in all very suspenseful.

Hello sister, Goodbye Life

A spoiled college student must grow up quickly when her estranged father and step mother die and she becomes the guardian of her young half sister.

First thoughts holy Molly it’s the lady from emperor’s new groove Sweet I love her voice. Then it was my god this kid is a freaking brat. But anyway, typical cliche everyone is hunky dory and live happily ever after in this huge mansion. The sisters get along , the mom is a typical. I gave it four stars just cuz it was cliched.

Right now I am watching the first season of Criminal Minds, I am in love with Dr Reed. Anyways on to the books I’ve been reading.
In the last week or two I have finally finished J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series, read a few starts of another series and a stand alone book that I’m not to sure of.

The King By J.R. Ward

Love it, 5 stars. Can’t wait for more. I hope she does a Iam,Trez, a Lassiter book. Not really understanding how assail and Sola fit into this series but all in due time Mrs. Ward will tell us.

Iron Hunt by Majorie M. Liu

Hated it I gave it 1 star. Good story plot but how it was presented was terrible and choppy and the grammar nazis would have a field day. Would exspect this from a fan fiction novelist not a “professional” author. Seems like a poorly written and edited first draft, on top of being lost throughout the whole book(grant it it is the first book in the series). As well as, to many unanswered questions for it as it said being the first book in the series at least give us some background as far as the main characters and why the demons were locked away. So all in all 1 1/2 stars only because I liked raw, zee, and aaz and the fact that the last few chapters finally sparked my interest.

Tiger Eye by Majorie M. Liu

Loved it I ended up giving it four stars on Goodreads. I really can’t review it without telling you the major plot points and that would be absolutely no fun.

The City by Dean Koontz

I gave this book 1 star just because I Couldn’t finish it. Couldn’t get into it, I’m more into paranormal romance. So wasn’t against Dean Koontz that I didn’t like it just wasn’t my style of reading.

Now I am reading Henna House by Nomi Eve, so far it is a good book, I’m stretching out my feelers and reading different genres but idk about this book but I will finish it and get back to you.

March is here!!!!!!!!! Part one

Dark Touch Movie Review

Ok in the opening title it says in big bold letters “Irish Productions” great that means it’s going to be Holy Cow scary. Now shut the kids up from screaming already, sorry.
The Netflix summary of this movie is as follows:
After a remote country house takes on a malevolent persona and kills 11-year-old Neve’s family, no one believes her claim that her home is to blame.

This absolutely makes NO SENSE. Never did they say yes it’s the house. My summary is: Neve’s parents beat the tar out of her and her 6 month old brother. Everytime Neve cries freaky stuff happens which in turn kills her family in a fire as well as accidentally squeezing the life out of her little brother when they took shelter in a closet. The family who take her in was an old friend of the families and her family. Well they enroll her into a private school and these two siblings are being abused and she goes to their house and sees what is happening and ends up killing everybody there. The next day she tells the pregnant guidance counselor that SHE (not the house) is killing everyone when she cries and objects fly around. Then few minor mishaps happen til the point Neve Snaps go all crazy and brainwashes the kids who are the kids of the family that took her in and takes them back to the house where it all started. The parents end up finding them and Neve ends up killing everybody including her self.

No where in the story was there and “hey this is why she is like how she is and she is possessed or just down right insane”. Honestly I thought this was going to be like the movie Orphan and everything twists and turns and what not. But no you are just waiting for what isn’t going to come. I can say picture wise it was a 4 star. Story line was a 2. Actors was a 4. So I would give this movie on the star chart a 3 cuz there is no 2.5.
Now time for me to put away laundry and fold the next batch.
