Ascension (The World of Ascension #1)  by Caris Roane

Publication date: December 28, 2010

Genre: paranormal romance

Alison Wells is no ordinary woman. Born with supernatural powers, she can never make love to a man without putting him in grave danger. But when her special vision reveals  a glorious muscled man soaring overhead on mighty wings, she feels an overwhelming attraction she cannot resist—even as he tells her: “I have come for you. Your blood belongs to me.
Kerrick is a vampire and a warrior who has fought his hunger for a woman’s love for the past two hundred years. As a Guardian of Ascension, he is sworn to protect Alison from the death vamp armies who crave her blood and her power. But Kerrick has cravings of his own—a forbidden longing to open his heart and veins to Alison. To share his blood…satisfy his thirst…and seal their fates forever.

Why I Want This Book: Guess i'm on angel kick right now ai'nt the wings gorgeous and some lasses enjoyed it who i how.

Penitence (Heavenly #2) By Jennifer Laurens

Publication date: April 29. 2010

Genre: paranormal romance

Book Two. Seeing good and evil spirits is a gift Zoe guards with her life. Despite her guardian angel's disappearance, Zoe forces herself to accept that she still has a purpose-but how does she carry the weight of her brother's drug abuse, the hardship of living with an autistic sister, and a best friend who's obsessed with a guy who only wants Zoe? She's never felt more alone. When a mysterious spirit appears, Zoe thinks she has a new guardian angel. Instead, her brother's addiction worsens, her parents are on the brink of separation, and her best friend tries to kill her. The spirit she thinks is her new guardian isn't there to protect her: he's out to destroy her family and seize Zoe's soul. . . for Hell. Will Matthias' return mean that he is Zoe's guardian angel again? Or is their love the reason the jaws of Hell now gape open?

Why I Want This Book: I Got book 1 as a present from a friend , nearly done so in the story with abria, Zoe and Matthias ( what a gentlemen) I need more ,lol

Cabel's Story (Dream Catcher, #1.1)Cabel's Story by Lisa McMann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A free online story by Lisa McMann. A companion to the first Dream Catcher novel, Wake, this is Cabel's perspective of the field trip that Janie and he took with their English class.

This was the chapter i was talkin abouth
looks like cable how i imagined him. the only character i could picture in my head. loved it but a tad short. there's a need for more.

View all my reviews

WAKE by Lisa Mcmann, left me a bit sleepy

Wake by Lisa Mcmann
Published by Simon pulse
Date published March 4, 2008
Rating 3/5
For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie's seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.
She can't tell anybody about what she does they'd never believe her, or worse, they'd think she's a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn't want and can’t control.
Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She is a participant

My toughts: 

Cover: THis is one of my beloved covers. A pillow , a purple one on a bedsheet and the background. LOVE'd the cover the first time i saw it on goodreads, this year in februari i think. sad did not lived to my expectations.

Book: This book was not for me. Before i begin i'm not bashing the author i can imagine her blood sweet and maybe tears writing the dream catcher series , this is book out of 3. Great name for a series. Now that's out in the open here i begin .  Ready, set go

When i got it i was so excited. Love this cover. Though please don't suck. It. The writing was different. So far i know this is my first book that i've read with a 3th person present tense. I think that ruined it for me. I felt like a bystander watching them and not as a friend. In other words did not feel emotionally connected to the secondary or even main characters

What i loved was the chapter in Cable Strumheller's pov . the main leading male chapter. This was not in the book it was more like the addendum or something like that. I felt more connected to Janie and cable in that chapter than trough the whole book. If cable were ''speakin '' so to say i think it would be as least a 4. My opinion. 
Plus the the excerpt let me in to thinkin maybe book 2 will be better.
Loved his dreams , how ever they there ##spoilerish maybe## twisted and janie helped him when she got a hold of her ability and helped people in their dreams###son goodread you can read it cause i don't know how to hide maybe spoilers here 

What i disliked. OK janie is a girl who not voluntary  was sucked into people's dreams. She hates it actually since she was 8. Did not feel connected to her. There was no romance and if there was i didn't feel it. Did not hated her but did not like her either.

secondary characters ; Mom , she is a drinking !@#$ or to say a alcoholic.That's where Janie gets her taste for alcohol. Ok Janie is on the lower classes in society when a bit sorry for her. Dylan's mom makes her mom angelic. Here is her mention 

I can't even remember the names of her friends(how little she had) or people in her school or where she had a job. In a elderly home. 

Plot was very slow but the last 70 pages where enjoyable. said a goodfrend used her money to buy it for me.It was a gift . Should have asked for something else. A lot of people loved it a coupple of my goodreads frends did. Will read book 2 and 3 but only if i win it.  Was not my cup of tea. lov tea. lol

Here is the booktrailer. Its really good

Review and Q & A w/ Heather Frost, Author of Seers

Heather was so nice for a short Q and A. First a short Bio

Heather Frost was born in Sandy, Utah, and raised in a small Northern Utah town. She is the second oldest of ten children, and she loves her family very much. She is currently pursuing her bachelor's degree in English. She has always been an avid reader, and reading and writing are among her most favorite things to do. She also enjoys playing the flute, listening to all types of music, and watching a wide variety of movies. Ever since she wrote her first short story—at the age of four—she has dreamed of one day becoming an author. Seers is her first published novel.

The Q and A
what was your inspiration?
A lot of things contributed to make Seers possible. Some real life experiences, and the resulting emotions that I felt. Lots of imagination, and a desire to write about immortals. I can't exactly pin down a single event, but it all came together one afternoon, and the story just came to life.

when did u start writing seers?
I started writing Seers in 2010, near the end of summer. It's been my fastest writing project, that's for sure—I was able to send it out to publishers before school started up again.

who was your favorite to create, the characters?
My favorite character to create would have to be Patrick. He's just got such a fascinating history, and it was really fun coming up with his personality—deciding how events would change him, and watching his reactions to different situations

when will book 2 be out?
It should be out next year!

your fav book ever?
That's such a hard question....I'm going to have to say The Scarlet Pimpernel, though.

Second part The review

For Kate Bennet, surviving the car wreck that killed her parents means big changes and even bigger problems. As she begins to see auras and invisible people, Kate must learn to trust Patrick O'Donnell, a handsome Guardian, or risk her life being overrun with Demons. She soon realizes that both she and her heart are in big-time trouble

Expected publication: October 8th 2011 by Bonneville

My thoughts

Cover: Its not the best cover out there. But it caught my attention when I saw it on netgalley.
Update: I liked it more and more while reading ’’Seers’’. I think the pinkish comes from being with
Book: The prologue was one of my favorite parts of this book. You get background information on the leading male, Patrick. The front that was used in the prologue was like a letter of sort. I really liked it.

The writing style was enjoyable and there are two pov but Kate narrates mostly. And I loved the front of the chapters which are the same as the title.

Kate Bennet ,the female protagonist , a 18 year old teen(yay a older protagonist) and sees aura’s (get it ‘‘Seers’’,lol) after a disastrous car in summer. On the first day of school she meets Patrick O’Donnell, a 18 year old Irish exchange student (swoon, have a thing on the Irish accent on women) who is in fact a 200 something year old guardian, you could say angelic but not exactly. They can’t go to heaven if after they choose to become one. I see what you’re thinking ‘’She falls for the mysterious new hot dude at first glance’’.

No she does not. She dislikes him because he has a silver aura, something must be terribly weird with him.( Normal people have a lot of colors together pink, blue, green etcetera. Demons have black ones) at first but falls for him almost midway through the book and Patrick over the 200 page mark. But almost to the end they both know that both likes each other. Kate learns what a seer is, what she is.

Their love is not gagging, loved the description of the first kiss I knew it was around the corner but did not know when, was so happy it happened. I’m a sappy romantic I know, lol.

Loved all the characters.
· Toni , a guardian a bit immature, ok that’s a understatement. But he is so funny. Loved his dialogues with Kate, Patrick, and Lee, Kate’s best friend

· Lee , what a wonderful amazing best friend. She knows Kate better than Kate knows herself

· Grandpa and grandma ,what wonderful old folk. What you would see on a hallmark card. Said

The plot had a mafia –ish feel to it. The demons where mafia ish. Patrick had more than two chapters I think, hope that in book two there are a lot more.

The epilogue gave me information what to expect from book two. Looking forward to it. Some plot points gave me a ‘’Huh’’ reaction, besides that its a good book.

I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars

This song reminds me of the first chapters of Seers
