Review: Spooked

Spooked by Tracy Sharp

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Rating: 3.5

I got this book for free on my kindle and went into it not expecting much, but was given a good read. I enjoyed the characters, the story line was fast paced and engaging, and it was very spooky.

The reason I have this book a 3.5 is because it was an awesome read until around chapter 7, it reminded me of some 90s YA and it was great. But as chapter 7 rolled in, I think it was chapter 7 lol, it turned into this sci-fi thriller and it just didn't blend well with the book. It seemed like the author mashed two books together. First we start off with a town where our main character lives and in this town girls are going missing. Lorelei has a gift, she can take secrets and see secrets, but these creatures are after her because of her ability so she has to keep a low profile, but she decides to use her power to find the missing girls. I love that part of the book, it wasn't unique but it was engaging. Then, things get intense and more science fictiony and I lost interest when that happened. I finished the book but I don't see myself reading the next one if there is one. But if you want a fast paced, short read, pick this up. It was still a good read.

Review: City of Glass

City of Glass
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Firstly, I just wanted to say that the way that this book ended, it doesn't seem like another 3 books were needed for the series. But I am going to read the next three just because I like the world and characters.

Spoilers Ahead...

This is the third and was supposed to be the final installment in The Mortal Instruments trilogy.
But Cassandra Clare ended up adding three more and now it is a series. I really, really enjoyed this
book and I was freaking out when I found out that Clary and Jace weren't brother and sister after all. I thought that was a crazy awesome twist and I applaud Cassandra Clare for pulling that one on us. Now, we get on to Sebastard, that asshole, I liked how ruthless he was but he killed Max and I wanted him dead and he died!!... I think... I actually think he might be the new villain for the next three books, but we'll see. We finally get to see what Clary and Jace are capable of, but I think we got to see Clary's abilities more. I don't even recall seeing Jace's abilities utilized at all... maybe I'm forgetting something lol but I liked that we got more info on that. I was happy to finally see Valentine get his ass whopped and now he's dead. He better stay dead because he was a weak villain, in my opinion. He was more like a Klaus (the vampire diaries) than a Voldemort. I was never scared of Valentine lol but that didn't mess the book up for me. I still loved it. I don't feel I really need to REVIEW this, because I suck at reviewing books but just know that I enjoyed it and I can't wait for "City of Bones" (movie). Now I need to BUY these books. I want them all in hardcover but that is going to be difficult, I will try.

thanks for reading and now I am onto starting "City of Fallen Angels".

Review: City of Ashes

City of Ashes
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This one dragged a little so I deducted a star but other than that, I loved it. I enjoyed the story separation, it reminded me of J.K. Rowling's writing where some scenes are about Clary and Simon but in a flash of a paragraph you are in a dark room with Valentine and Imogen. You get to know the villain more as well as other characters when authors do this, I'm doing it now with Wicked Beautiful. I enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to see what happens in book 3 and why the hell Simon can be in the sunlight!! WTF is going on? all the questions!!!! I NEED ANSWERS NOW!!!!
