Awakened by Ednah Walters, A Nephilim love story(with a lot of action)

Published August 22nd 2010 by Pill Hill Press
Most teens turn sixteen and get the license to drive, but Lil Falcon gets the license to kill demons. Orphaned as a child and raised by an eccentric grandfather, Lil is concerned with surviving high school and is unaware that she's a Guardian-a being with super powers charged with killing demons and protecting humanity. When she meets Bran, a mysterious boy with amazing abilities, his psi energy unlocks her latent powers. But Bran has a secret that can ruin their growing relationship, and the truth she discovers may destroy everything she believes in unless she finds the right balance between love and sacrifice.

My toughts:

Bookcover:. Wats wrong with this cover? Nothing . This cover looks intense. (The dude is bran btw.) Huge wings, lol.

The prologue was really good , The synopsis intrigued me like a great synopsis should . We get to meet lil falcon and bran immediately. (I had the tendency to read little falcon instead of lil falcon trough the first chapters but later I got used to her name.)
Lil accepted who she was and did not hide her gypsy heritage, that was cool. I loved that she was a good friend to her friends. Most of all Not a WHINY lass.

Sykes and Remy , two of the side characters who acted immature , and funny and are witty. And enjoying like brothers towards lil, but loved her as a sis.what do you expect from teenage brothers there annoying lol. The other side characters were really enjoyable and needed to create a wonderful tale. Grandpa, Izyy, Kim and others

The romance is brief in all the action . It not gagging for a boy . Lets me honest Boys don’t read as as girls . With romance all most non existent . Lil and bran felt like real people , real teens. And have to say Bran is the perfect gentlemen , although grandpa was a bit hesitant , I can imagine he only has her left , you will find out why if u read it 

Found a song that fits with a beloved scene of this book, for those who read it its the mountain scene at night ,the first date.
It’s from  lady antebellum , here it is

The fighting scenes were Amazing , was on the edge of my seat , the tempo was good not to quickly but did not drag at all. Sadly did not find a good song for those scenes

The bad guys were bad/evil but I felt like there was some good somewhere. You will find out a lot of family history and a lot of question will be stirred upp.

Got book for two as a gift  from  Ednah Walters, will read it soon and review it
Give this book a  5 Stars out of 5
Here is the booktrailer

The Marked Son By Shea Berkley

The Marked SonThe Marked Son by Shea Berkley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My thoughts:

Cover: I absolutely like this cover.WATS NOT THE LIKE A BOUTH IT? A couple of YA Fiction covers are hideous , or the cover is the best thing about that book, meaning it sucked. Not this one the cover added to the book, you could see Dylan ,that the way I imagined him. The cover draws you in because it is a picture of a guy with piercing violet blue eyes staring into your soul. When I first saw the cover I was happy that it was on netgalley and I requested it. I got approved. So here I go


Ok it took a longer time reading it than expected. Normally it takes two –four days to read a book. Been busy with school stuff.

the very beginning really interested me in reading the whole book. When he is dumped by his deadbeat mom, at his grandparents after an absence of 17 years, the story really begins. This is after the prologue . At the ranch or farm things start to happen !! He sees his “ ghost ’’,Kera who appeared in dreams his whole life. Some less vivid than others. And he discovers she is from a other dimension, Taeg. A place still in the middle ages, looks like earth but different

I got to say the creapy creatures are cool, really cool. I encountered more than three species in the book . The poisonous Milispit(slimy half lizard creatures with broken looking wings) and the vindictive Pux( small fairy beings that have razor like parts of their body)

I liked Dylan from the very start, he is brave, he caring, just all round nice guy with a troubled past, the person he knew the longest in his life dumped him, his mom. Later on you find out why she is like she is. But I had no caring feelings for her, more mad and pissed

Kera , I did not like her that very much in the beginning. Boy I was wrong love her now, she has spunk, she comes up for what she believes in, helpful. They meet in the 2/3 of the story . Her chapters are in 3th person narrative , and Dylan’s chapters were in 1st person. I had to adjust at first that the reason I did not like Kera at first. I was happy their romance was not insta-love. Actually they met before and became friends in their dreams, a bit creepy but cool. And it was not vomiting like I did when I read the romance development, ps hate twilight I puked mentally

The secondary characters really added to the story, grandma and pa, Jason and Theo who became friends of Dylan . The dialog between them was very funny

I never thought I could get emotionally attached. I yelled, that can’t happened to them.

My favorite quote on the last page 286, received a netgalley arc

I sigh and my dream fades,replaced by the light of love shining from kera's eyes.

my dream girl is real

I don't have to be alone anymore

That 3 sentences made me longing for book 2. And a coupple questions were answered at the end and a coupple questions came into excistence in the end.

The Last Apprentice:Revenge of the Witch (AUDIOBOOK)

The Last Apprentice:Revenge of the Witch (AUDIOBOOK) [CD]The Last Apprentice:Revenge of the Witch (AUDIOBOOK) [CD] by Joseph Delaney

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

i enjoyed this audiobook. i downloaded from it was free in there summer giveway. wat lured me to this book was: first of all it was is written by joseph delaney and narrated by christopher evan welch. the story is a bout a boy names thomas J. Wurk i think, don't know if i heard it correct.
from goodreads;''Young Tom, the seventh son of a seventh son, starts work as an apprentice for the village spook, whose job is to protect ordinary folk from "ghouls, boggarts, and all manner of wicked beasties."
this tale takes place in england
his dad owns a farm and looked for jobs for his 7 sons. when tom came to a age to hav a job all of his favors were used up lookin for jobs for the other 5 sons. the oldest got the farm. so he asked the spook apprentice-ship for tom. That's were the tale begins. he meets alice , a young witch and granddaughter of mother mulkin(was a audiobook so i don't know if i spelled it right lol).And the dangers occur from that moment on

1 of the most like able parts is where Tom knew this is wat i'm supposed to be, a spook
the narration was really good, my first audiobooks so i can't compare it I hung on Christopher's evry word, and for my pov the lines spoken in brittish english sounded real. I really hopin next book is just as good. its a series the first book

Warm Bodies, a unique zombie tale

Its really good and loved this book. I'm glad maggie stiefvater recomended it
loved R how he was the narrator and male protagonist. the story is from a zombie's pov and loved it because never read a story over zombies not as monsters but as social and what happining in there being,beings

Marion’s characters are far from perfect. Their imperfections give them a realness This is one zombie story that won’t give you nightmares. It leaves you instead thinking about that thing called life, there zombies not living and cheering for a monster.

His journey begins with no memory only a hunger for the flesh of survivors and the rare feelings that come as he feeds on the energy, emotion and memory trapped inside that what zombies long for the human brain. But a particular meal,this meal, the mind of a once-idealist, now cynical young man named Perry, awakens something within R. He makes the first moral choice of his undeath and saves Perry’s girlfriend Julie.
one of my fav scenes is where  R is in the camp or place were the human's live , R put make up on to fool the guards and they believed he was alive and his clan were acting like they were chasing him, R drank liquor with Julie, and needs to go to the toilet because he 's gotta pee, he is thinking was happening, this has not happened before

the uk cover, a bit House -ish, you know the  Fox show house

the us cover

The beginning of something great

Hi all, i'm a 19 year old teen who lives in Suriname, South America. NEVER heard of it before? Google it, in cause you forget here is a wikipedia link  . PS  a couple of things are not correct or false
I read YA and paranormal adult books and review them.  My native language is Dutch , so if i made a grammar mistake, say so. thnx and i hope this will be a succes
