Book Review: I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

I've Got Your NumberI’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay, picture it: after a night of fun with your girlfriends (drunk, might I add) and the next day, you realized that you lost your engagement ring. And this engagement ring was special to your fiancée’s family, whom don’t even like you. And what’s worse? You lost your phone. So what do you do desperately? Get a phone…from a bin, mind you-and use it, not knowing that it belonged to someone else-an a business. So what do you do? Become a businessman’s PR for a while, forwarding messages and emails and whatnot.

But then you started going through his emails, his personal life, and you even help stop a fraud that could destroy his business. And on top of that, you realize that your fiancée has been cheating on you with your wedding planner, you help get rid of a ex-girlfriend and then you realize that before you even get married to your fiancée, the guy you got to know is in love with you.

I know, sounds weird, right?

Well it’s not. Because that’s what happened in this book, and it was awesome. I laughed, called one of the characters a rat, and cried at the end. This was an amazing novel and honestly became one of my favorite Sophie Kinsella novel, right next to the Shopaholic books.

Poppy Wyatt was funny, a fun girl to hang out with, and don’t even deserve her fiancée, Magnus (no matter how hot/cute/commitment phobe he is). She deserve Sam Roxton, the guy she worked for a bit who isn’t a commitment phobe and who would treat her right. So I do recommend this book a lot.

Book Review: French Kissmas by Cathy Hapka

French KissmasFrench Kissmas by Catherine Hapka

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book made me wanna go book a trip to Paris to go there for Christmas. It was beautiful, had some romance in it, along with some drama as well-and of course, the torn between two guys thing that I wish I had but I dont…

But this book is about Nicole Larson who came to Paris to spend Christmas and New Years with her friend Annike, and to also film a promotional video for S.A.S.S. When she gets there, Nicole meets up with her old flame Luc, and automatically their relationship reignites. But on a rainy day, Nicole meets Mike, a cute American boy and she feels relaxed, but then she dosn’t when she kissed Luc. And boy was it a kiss.

So while Nicole was boy-confused, she met new people during the trip-Quinn, a loud British girl who wanted to throw herself at Luc, and Nicole got jealous, then snapped at her during a dinner with friends. I forgot the rest of them (my mind goes bad quick, don’t it?) but all in all this was a good book, I’m glad Nicole and Luc kissed at the end and honestly I would like to read more from this series.

Book Review: A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire) by George R.R. Martin

A Clash of KingsA Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh good lord this book. I had this book since last year and it took me THIS LONG to read it. And honestly….IT WAS PERFECT. Even though this is the book the inspired the second season of GoT, I thought I break it down by house like I did the first book.

House Baratheon: This book introduced Stannis Baratheon, Robert’s and Renly’s brother, who lives at Dragonstone with his wife and daughter. He teamed up with Melisandre of Asshai, the Red Woman, and he also became the champion of the Lord of Light (or R’hllor. Like….IT’S REALLY HARD TO SAY). Then in Highgarden, Renly is king and he married Margaery Tyrell, but he died by a shadow, and people thought that Brienne of Tarth, one of his Kingsguard, had killed him, or even Catelyn did it. But they didn’t. Also, in the Battle for Kings Landing, Stannis lost to the Lannisters. Also….Stannis isn’t a ham. Darn it.

House Greyjoy: Honestly….I didn’t care one bit for Theon’s chapters. Really, I didn’t. He whined throughout all of his chapters, from returning to the Pike to taking over Winterfell, even styling himself Prince Theon-his chapters just…got on my nerve that I honestly wanted to skip his chapters.

House Lannister: Okay…honestly, though I don’t care about Cersei, I was all the way #TeamTyrion. Tyrion did everything as the acting Hand of the King to make sure everyone was okay, even though the peasants hated him. Even in the Battle he did splendidly till he got cut. Also…I squealed when I read Jaime’s part in Catelyn’s chapter. But at the end of the battle, Tywin became hand of the king, and Tyrion was laid up in a room above the Queen’s Ballroom.

House Stark: So Ned Stark is dead. Robb Stark is the Young King of the North, winning battles. Catelyn visits Renly to see if he can ally himself with Robb, then went back to Riverrun to be with her late father. Sansa’s stuck in King’s Landing with Joffrey and Cersei, who keeps calling her ‘stupid’ and ‘idiot’. Tyrion’s nice to her, and Ser Dontos keeps promising her that ‘oh, I’m taking you home, I’m taking you home’ but THIS LIAR didn’t even do it. Then The Hound scared her, but she did sang to her during the battle for Kings Landing. And Arya went through so many phases-from being a boy named Arry, then at Harrenhal she was Weasel and Nan, and also Jaqen H’Gar was in her chapters too (in which I also squealed). She was Nan for Roose Bolton, but at night she, Hot Pie and Gendry left, but before that Jaqen gave her the sliver coin, and taught her valar morghulis.

House Targaryen: So Dany’s in Qarth, living with Xho Xhos-that guy-and Pyat Pree from the House of the Undying-WHICH, might I add, IS HORRIBLE AND DISGUSTING. I wouldn’t go in there, even if I had a million dragons. But then she left because Xho just wanted to marry her and wanted her to stay, but she said no ONE MILLION TIMES and left with her Dothraki. And I’m also glad that the House of the Undying fell to the ground. Dammit.

I loved this book so much that I wanna read the next book!

Book Review: Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Dance with the Devil (Dark-Hunter, #3)Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book…this book, this book, this book. This book made me cry. This book made me laugh. Honestly, this book was really really good-it took me all day to read it, but in all honestly it was really good, like any book I read from Sherrilyn Kenyon.

So this book talks about Zarek, a hardass mutha who was banished from killing a whole entire village-something he didn’t do. So Artemis and Acheron asked Astrid to judge him-which she did.

At first, the two didn’t like another-Astrid couldn’t see, so she had her friend Sasha to help her (even though he was in his wolf form most of the time) and these two kept gettin’ into it (almost) until she went into Zarek’s past and honestly….THAT WAS PAINFUL. I cringed at his memories-no one should ever go through that-but when Astrid went into his dreams, I cried. Because they made love in the dream and she wanted to give him a good memory.

Well all of that, as all of her novels, turned into something horrible when Thanatos attacked and starts makin’ a mess, and killed one Dark Hunter (Which I thought was Bjorn Lothbrok when I saw his name, but it wasn’t…darn it), Sundown helped (which was good) but when Simi came to protect Astrid and Zarek, I kept laughing the whole enitre time…but when she got stabbed and she said, “It’s not supposed to hurt…I’m invincible. Akri said so.” I almost cried.

But I’m glad Acheron forced Artemis to save her. And Simi’s right-she should eat the bitch heifer-goddess because honestly? She’s a bitch and couldn’t even say her name until Ash told her to say it.

But THE ENDING. CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE ENDING THO. THE ENDING MADE ME CRY. When Zarek went back to get Astrid? I CRIED. I pumped my fist and said ‘AWWWWWWW YISSSSS’ and ‘FINALLY YA BIG OAF YOU GOT YOUR WOMAN’ (well, after I cried and put the book down).

And the choice the Thanatos/Callyx made? Perfection.

This was an amazing book and I do reconmend this book a lot!!!

Now A Book Blog….

After much thinking last night (I went to bed at 12:30 once I got done with Sea of Swords), I decided to turn this blog into a book blog. I know I already have one (asouthernreaderscroner.blogspot.com) but lately I’ve been posting book reviews like crazy, neglecting my other categories like crazy. I’m still deciding to make another personal blog, though I have one that no one reads (champangeandcupcakes.blogger.com).

But on this one I decided to add a music category and bring back the mancrush category-one because I love music and two, because I love hot men in literature and I wanna share/show them off.

And I also kept the Diary one because sometimes I’ll talk about my life once in a while when I get a chance, but for now this is a book blog (which honestly, I’m a bit proud of.)

Book Review: Sea of Swords by R.A. Salvatore

Sea of Swords (Forgotten Realms: Paths of Darkness, #4; Legend of Drizzt, #13)Sea of Swords by R.A. Salvatore

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again, R.A. Salvatore has not disappointed me (okay, on some parts he did and sometimes I have to curse him-I kept screaming ‘NO, NO, NO!’ throughout the book, close to the end) BUT I enjoyed the ride and I loved each character, though for the love of god, I got mad at Le’lorinel for being obsessed with Drizzt when Drizzt didn’t do a DANG OL’ THING to her, but it was sad in the end that she had to die and Drizzt morning her in the end.

The one part that semi-ticked me off was Wulfgar. He’s on the ship Sea Sprite, looking for the pirate ship Bloody Kneel to get Aegis-fang back. But he was like, ‘Well, I don’t know if I should get it, I have a wife and a daughter and I wanna protect them by doing the right thing.’ and honestly? I wanted to THROW THE BOOK TO THE WALL. This wasn’t the Wulfgar I’ve read, the Wulfgar that had Aegis-fang and would do anything to protect his family and have adventures with his friends. But then I read that he slapped Catti-brie…I WANTED TO HIT HIM SO HARD IN THE HEAD. SO BADLY. But Bruenor Battlehammer did it for me which I got happy about.

BUT I was happy to see Regis and Catti-brie in this book (since the last book I’ve read about Drizzt pissed me off to high heaven), but I keep aweing at the cute relationship between Drizzt and Catti-brie…though I keep picturing Bruenor with his axe behind him like ‘Don’t do it, ye durned elf!’ though I tweeted a quote from Catti-brie that said, ‘Did ye ever think ye should just shut up and kiss me?’ and I was WAITING for these two to kiss-WAITING. But sadly they didn’t (in which in my head I cursed R.A. Salvatore for making me wait).

But I loved this book, I enjoyed it and would love to read more about Drizzt and the Companions of the Hall because it was awesome and amazing and I really do recommend this book a lot!!!
