Book Review: Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy, #5) by Richelle Mead

((Okay…ONE MORE BOOK REVIEW, and then I’m done. I swear. I’m done for a while…I swear))

Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy, #5)Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

HOLY SHIT THIS BOOK THO. I HONESTLY MISSED THIS SERIES SO BAD. From the beginning to end, this have been an amazing book. Some parts of it made me gag, made me wanna throw the book to the wall-it was wonderful and I loved it.

So this book started with the graduation test of Rose, which she graduated with flying colors. Then came the breakout with Victor Dashkov, Lissa’s uncle, along with Eddie, so they can find Victor’s brother so they can find out a way to save Rose’s ex-boyfriend, Dimitri, from being a Strigoi. So they go to Vegas and, along with Adrian, meets up with Robert and Robert told them how to bring someone back from being a Strigoi: charm a stake with spirit, and stake them in the heart. And the part Rose don’t like was that only a Spirit user had to do it. Which means Lissa had to do it.

And of course, Rose said hell no-she won’t even let Lissa near a Strigoi. But sadly that didn’t happen when they came back to Court. Eddie and Rose had do to some work for the guardians while Lissa and Christian went to Lehigh University, where surprise, surprise, Dimitri showed up and kidnapped them, his army of Strigoi killing the group of guardians and Patricia Voda. Since both Rose and Lissa are shadow-kissed and have the bond, Rose saw everything and she went with the rest of the guardian team to save them.

Then something amazing happened during the rescue: Lissa, using her charmed stake, shoving it awkwardly in Dimitri’s heart (thanks to Christian’s fire), and…Dimitri was back as a Dhampir. Everything should be great, right?

Nope.

Dimitri went with the guardians, and only requested Lissa to see him. Sure Rose was mad, but she agreed, seeing him through the bond. It hurted her so bad to see him that way, and honestly…it made me mad. Dimitri didn’t want to see her-okay. But there’s Adrian who loves her and would do ANYTHING for her.

A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G.

BUT NO, she kept ignoring him until they spent the night together….and on that same night, the Queen Tatiana was killed…with Rose’s sliver stake.

BUT Rose didn’t do it.

She went to court and was presented with the evidence, and everyone believed the evidence and she was put in jail.

This book was amazing and I really need to read the last book so I can wish my favorite characters goodbye.

Book Review: Scandal in Spring (Wallflowers, #4) by Lisa Kleypas

((I know y’all are tired of seeing book reviews on my blog…but don’t worry! I will have a different post on here real soon!! Just keep your eyes peeled, okay?))

Scandal in Spring (Wallflowers, #4)Scandal in Spring by Lisa Kleypas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So this is the fourth book of the Wallflowers and OMG I’m in love with this. And it turns out….me and Daisy have a lot in common like….she loves to read, I love to read. I make wishes sometimes, she makes wishes sometimes….she dreams of the perfect man (and she got it), I’m….single but I’ll be okay-I know someone’s out there waiting on me.

And who is the man of Daisy’s dreams?

Mr. Matthew Swift, the man Daisy and Lillian hates more than ever. He’s the total opposite of what Daisy wants-but he’d been in love with her ever since he’d met her-and I was shocked. He even kept a button and a lock of Daisy’s hair, which was weird, but honestly? I found it cute.

Also, on the Lillian and Marcus front, they had a baby-little Merritt-and she’s so cute!!!

BUT back on Daisy and Matthew…

In one part of the book, Daisy was trying to make Matthew jealous (and honestly…it worked) because in that one week…he wanted to actually kill someone. Even though during the process Lord Llandrion fell for Daisy and kissed her, she didn’t feel a thing.

And then that night Matthew and Daisy kissed…and did it (though they talked through it).

The most shocking thing in the book was when this man from Boston came and exposed Matthew from what he truly was-the son of a Irish Drunk who was hired to be his son’s friend or something like that. Whatever bad thing the son did, Matthew was blamed for it. Homie even went to college and passed and the son didn’t. Matthew even told the truth about his feelings for Daisy, even when she was trying to unlock his handcuffs. And as soon Matthew and Mr. Whatchimacallit was gone out the door with the po po in tow, Marcus and Thomas Bowman went behind them.

Then Matthew got into a accident and Daisy got worried about him to the point that she was in the Marsden room, seperating books before she started thinking about what’ll happen if she didn’t see him again, all the what ifs dancing in her mind until he came back, and she asked if he was a ghost. He said no, and they did it in the Marden room before he took her to their room.

And while the trial was going on, Daisy went to find a big home in Bristol where all her friends can visit, and she had a book for every room as well. And then finally, they got married, which signaled the end of this book and this series (to me, anyway).

Book Review: Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)Cinder by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

THIS BOOK, THO. THE ENDING…I CAN’T.

This is a retelling of Cinderella, but in the future and I honestly enjoyed it. From the beginning to the end I loved every single moment of it-when she found out she was a Lunar, then when she went to the ball to face Queen Levana….I honestly enjoying it one hundred percent.

My Favorite Characters: Cinder, Prince Kai, Peony (R.I.P), Iko, Dr. Earlnd

Least Favorite Characters: Queen Levana-okay, trick. I DON’T LIKE YOU. You make me so mad, and after reading what you did to your own neice, then you’re trying to get Kai to like you…what’s worse, you got mad over a bloody mirror and you wanted to kill the servant for that? Really, bro? Really? And what’s BLOODY WORSE, you wanted to get rid of Cinder and thought she was lying. BUT SHE SAW RIGHT THROUGH THE GLAMOUR, YOU UGLY WOMAN.

Adri and Pearl-of course I’m going to hate them-they’re the wicked stepmother and stepsister. But at least Peony loved her sister instead of being just like your mama. I HATE THE BOTH OF YOU-but not as much as I hate Queen Levana.

Now I honestly can’t wait to read Scarlet.

Book Review: Devil in Winter (Wallflowers, #3) by Lisa Kleypas

Devil in Winter (Wallflowers, #3)Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

HOLY CRAP. THIS BOOK THO. This book….had me crying and gasping till the end. And….I am in love with Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent….DANG NABBIT. I swore it wasn’t supposed to happen, but as the book progressed and that he started to change…I fell for him. Badly. Dang it.

BUT before we can get into many reasons why I like Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent, let’s get into the book review.

The book began with Evie coming to him with a proposition: marry her. Sebastian looked at her like she was crazy at first, but then he decided to do it. But there is a second proposition: they can’t make love after the wedding night. At first, he didn’t like the idea, but the more he hung around her, even when he took over her father’s club, he slowly but surely fell in love with her. After the (tiring) wedding they had at Gretna Green and they made love the day after, they went back to England, Evie wanted to go see her father, who was on his deathbed, at a club named Jenners. Sebastian agreed, and while Evie took care of her father till he passed, she did see her family members again-well, her uncle Peregrine, who pretended to be her friend Annabelle Hunt, thanks to the stupid Joss Bullard, and Sebastian saved her.

The one scene that had me crying all night was when Sebastian was telling Evie about her father’s condition, and she didn’t believe him one bit, and he yelled at her while moving his hands. Evie thought he was gonna hit her and he noticed….and he swore to her, ya’ll-swore to her that he’ll never lay a hand on her. Then he asked about who hit her in the past. Evie told him that it was her family that used to hit her, and automatically he said he’ll tear him from limb from limb. I have never cried that night when I read that part-and the kiss after it tho….

Then my darling St. Vincent got shot (got dammit) and he was in bed, close to dying, but Marcus (yay!) and Cam Rohan saved him by using four o’clock plant and other things they used I can’t remember, and his fever broke. And after that, he became a horrible little patient who rang that little sliver bell for everything (I would’ve broken it), but it did make Evie break their little bet-for three months he couldn’t make love to her, but he can kiss her whenever and where ever he wanted.

At the end, Joss Bullard came back and tried to kill Evie, but Cam shot him dead when he was SUPPOSED to be dead, but in the end, Sebastian and Evie got together, and he became my bae….but now in a good way.

Book Review: It Happened One Autumn (Wallflowers, #2) by Lisa Kleypas

It Happened One Autumn (Wallflowers, #2)It Happened One Autumn by Lisa Kleypas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book didn’t take me long-it was a quick read for me (which is oddly weird) but I digress, let’s get one to the review….

Like the first novel, I didn’t ship Lillian and Marcus, Lord Westcliff. I really didn’t-Lillian’s american, stubborn, and fiery-won’t let a man control her one bit. And Marcus is a calm gentleman who’s the same a little bit-stubborn, full of pride, and don’t smile at all because of his father making sure he didn’t smile or care for anyone…until he met Lillian.

At first, Lillian didn’t like him one bit (if you read the first book, you know why) but then as they got closer (and the aphrodisiac she got from the aproctoary…which I believe it’s perfume…or the Regency Era’s version of Chanel No. 5), even though she didn’t listen to him when she took that one jump on the Jumping course that could’ve broken her neck, and he forbade her to ride any horses while she was there at his home, then the little lessons by Marcus’s mother, the Countess of Westcliff, whom I was reminded of by a certain Dowager Countess of a certain show called Downton Abbey

But after Lillian got drunk in Marcus’s library, they made love and Marcus asked her to marry her. She refused at first, but then as she thought about it…she loved him more than ever, and even though Lord St. Vincent was a good friend to her, she wanted to marry him first, just to make Marcus jealous, but then she didn’t want to marry Lord St. Vincent at all.

When Marcus told his mother that he was going to marry Lillian, all hell broke loose. The Countess devised a little plan that made Lillian get kidnapped-by Lord St. Vincent, then lie that Lillian told her that she and St. Vincent were eloping. Marcus didn’t believe her one damned bit once he got the truth out of her, and raced to the Inn where Lord St. Vincent had her, and beat his sorry ass all over the tavern (after Simon Hunt let him do it before he was killed.)

But in the end, Marcus and Lillian got married at Gertna Green, and Lillian was now the Countess of Westcliff….and then Evie visited the Lord St. Vincent just to see him….to make a deal?!

Say wha??

But that will come in another book review another time….
