MorganVille Vampires - Up to No 7

I don't know how it happens, I guess I get to know the author's writing personality and now the books just flow!!!3 hours a day x 2 days and one book less till the end!!!
I finished both book 6 - Carpe Corpus - too much action on that one, harder to follow but more interesting in every page, and book 7 in 2 days each!!Now the baseline story is just the reality where I can wrap my thoughts around and the story flows so nicely!I really love this series!Not adore though...
I am afraid I am self-brainwashing myself with too much reading and my mind-hard drive will have to erase old memories or University info to store these stories!!!Is that possible?I guess better a book rather than tons of movies and images flickering in my mind right?I invest more on my imagination!!
The truth is that I never leave my imagination to linger, just linger not even be expressed. I never invested time in creating art, and what small part was too logic oriented, and I think I should find a way to flow it outwards...
Anyway, about book 7:
The love affair between Shane and Claire is amazingly cute and romantic...and she still has her insecurities!how cute is that!?but Bleaze do not stop on Shane's hotness because I am drawling over him!!!!!!!he must be a hunk!!!
And the video tapes of the bedrooms----hahahahahah that was so funny I couldn't go on reading!!!
these books are entertainment on its prime - worth every page!!!
going for number 8...

MoRgAnViLLe VaMpIrEs: Glass Houses

I started it only yesterday!!!how weird@@@@@
It was fun - seriously fun and easy flowing without alot of complications but with alot of juice!!!
This gets a 10/10!
Claire - the book geek who is @ college level by the age of 16 moves to TLC university/school (i didn't get exactly what) so she won't go to uni out of state ASAP-she's that smart.
So she get's hazed-really badly - beaten up badly - by this girl Monica and her crew (I belive the term 'Monikettes' was childish but no-one's perfect) really beat her up man!
So cool!But I have her in my mind as really ass scary/loco/crazy but fun to stand up to as Claire did!
So in order to get out of Monica's way she ends up in this house to rent a room where Eve (Goth-big sis character), Michael (paranormal, hot-mysterious and big bro figure) and Shane ( sexy,lazy and kind of high all the time with ninja skills) live like a family giving out a comfort and familiarity that even I was jealous of....
So the plot thickens as Claire moves in but still provokes Monica et al. and eventually a whole story unravels on the vampires who live in that town, Morganville, and the rest gets so mixed but still with a simplicity such as watching a movie!!!Such and easy read!!!I actually missed enjoying reading! !!!
Claire is bookwormy but easygoing and nice with a twist of humor and a lot of bravery :)
At first I couldn't figure out if it was Michael or Shane the target of the love story - Michael was the obvious choice since he was the Alpha there but then Claire started noticing Eve's glimpses and I wasn't sure untill she actually asked him if he liked Eve...
But still then the plot wasn't for sure as Shane was friendly and fun with no hints - which I loved!!!!thank you thank you for not making it another predictable story!!!
Seriously now, this book flowed so easily I started thinking of movie scenes and it occured to me that I have substituted tv and movies with books!That is I was feeling bad that my head was so full of movie shenes, actors, background music and small details because I was a movie freak and now I am a book freak!Even though it is not as easy as in the movies I have figured out the hints and threads the author gives for giving up the plot and the continuation of the story!So I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!

What's next?
Lets see book 2!and its the weekend?maybe till Monday??
ps:i think it should be Glass House not Glass Houses since its the name of the house they live (Michael Glass owns it)....;)

Fragile Eternity

Fragile Eternity was
ok. B P L E A S E . The ongoing debate of Aislinn choosing between Keenan and Seth got recycled over and over and over... Thank you Seth for going to Feary to the High Court and gave some interesting experiences for the Feary world or else I would have been bored to death. I adore Aislinn's effection for Seth but girl get your mind straight already!
My court 0r my heart, my heart or my court...blah blah blah...
I did get weirded out on how every new character and protagonist becomes
suddendly very very very important in the Feary world. Aislinn-Summer Court in book 1, Leslie-Dark Court in book 2, Seth-High Court in book 3 but what importance!Seth is the Summer Queens beloved, the Dark Kings brother, and the High Queens son.... too many identities mark has been reached......
At first I wanted to see where this ongoing debate would end but book 4 is about a new inserted story about
Anie-new Court of Shadows-book 4 which was the most thrilling and adventurous so far!
Anie as a character, way better than Aislinn. Anie is a Hound and she can bit your head of hell be damned!!!!!:) She is the one on the cover and the tattoo's meaning comes out but in the end.
I also liked Devlin, he was bound to rise to power one way or another!I would love to kick Sorcha's ass for being so absent minded with the whole Feary world!!!
PS:Marr (author) forgot all about Anie's still living mother Jillian whose memory was erased once abducted and transferred to live in Feary for both Annie's and her own safety!!what happened with that reunion??
I do believe that the author in the end kind of roughed up the edges to hurry up the books end but it was the cost for giving the reader such a
luscious story full of drama, fight, self-inspection and of course falling in love bits. :)
I hope Rae's role does get a happy ending because being a mortal dream-walker is kind of dead-end job..
Last point, drums pleaze:
Niall asked for his dreams to be tied with Iri's!!it came out from a joke but it actually happened it the end!!
what did that mean???we have read that Iri is in love with Niall since forever and that they have been companions in the dark days but that was the epitome of their relationship!!Irial was wounded though and Bananach did say that Iri had about of a fourthnight worth of life span- so is that the happy ending for them two???They are both so strong and misterious and if in love, they do deserve finding their passion through the bond they share!(no discriminations in love!!!!)

I am sad the new book comes in Feb 2011, I'd like the ending so I can close up this whooole story once and for all!It's so addictive!bo, on my way to a new book saga!any suggestions???i do have a couple already in line!:P

Prince of Persia - beyond expectations

Prince Danstan : an orphan raised a Prince selected by the Kind due to his character and courage.
Princess Tamina: protector of the dagger and the sands of time

A love story with equality and understanding of each others burdens and responsibilities!Is there a book about it?
Nop. Googled it...
'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a 2010 fantasy-adventure film written by Jordan Mechner, Boaz Yakin, Doug Miro, and Carlo Bernard;'
courtesy of Wikipedia...
So I wasn't quite drawn from its publicity. Mostly it was Jake with his amazing new abs and topless stills which did not do it for me. The movie has alot more to offer and with different marketing would attract more crowd I believe.
The story was amazing, the fighting invigorating, and the chemistry between the protagonists explosive!
There were some parts that didn't bond but it paid back in fantastic costumes and imagination!
The concept of time travelling reminded me the Nicolas Cage movie - when was it? -yes, Next (2007) where the movie ended up in the beginning since he had the gift of seeing the outcome of the strings of choices he made, and it ended up that he foresaw a whole movie's worth of choices..:)
Jake Jake Jake @ first I thought it wouldn't be any good for him to go macho and muscly but he proved me wrong. He is over-muscled -arlond schwarzenegger style- where veins look ready to pop but with his character it gave his role a great match!!!
So go ahead watch it with a bucket of pop corn because this movie rocks!!!!

Ink Exchange

Unfortunately I didn't see the book cover when I read it - it is quite suited for the book. The book is more sexy than the first one as Leslie is more dark and pained than Aislinn with more trauma to overcome thus stronger and more admirable. The trick was how to bring up a story with the same traits but with new bravado!well Leslie was attached to the king of the Dark Court, Irial, thus being part of the Dark Court as a vessel for the humans' emotions which is the Dark feys' food source. The story was magnifique and Leslie was an amazing character to meet. Where I lost it was Nial, Nial was in the first book, Keenan's guardian, who has as it seems quite a history with Irial - that I accept but he was so into Leslie and after all that happened between them I think there was something missing. Maybe creating their own court?I don't know but something should have initiated from their amazing connection!!! Most unfortunatley Leslie's connection to Irial rather than to Nial, was sexier and alot more powerful!Still though I remember Seth's calmness and solidity with jealousy for Aislinn.......
By the way, I amazon-ed the third book and we go back to Aislinn and Keenan!?wtf?why no body told me sooner???so I could read that one first!!!!!!!:D

WiCkEd LoVeLy

This was a nice off the rail fantasy romance...
Aislinn is her name, I don't know how its pronounced but a nice one for the reader!
Her relationship with Seth - hot best friend who turns out to be the best boyfriend ever - reminds me of my current situation with my best friend who made a move and I embraced it with nothing in return, no pressure, questions or anything and he is still afraid, he backed out. What do I do then? Leave him off since he doesn't have the courage to stand up and be with me?I didn't even ask him as much!
This is insane.. The worst part is that I lost my best friend because even if I don't wish it, I cannot trust him with my feelings anymore because in a way he rejected me eventhough its his insecurity that does,,,,
Well my guy lacks what Seth had. B*LLS. Bleazeeee!!!!
so i am -1 on my friends lists and -1 on the list of my potential soulmates!!
thats a NO-NO situation pour moi don't you think??
So for the book - the story line was amazing, parallel to the real world and actually possible with not so many exaggerations... I would say that its a great substitute for Twilight fans to find our fix in paranormal romance!But I have to admit that I tried to read Twilight after all this time and it felt boring or tending to boring so I left it till I actually miss it so as not to resent it in the end!
In the beginning it was trouble to actually get how different the faeries were even within their own kind. There is the Winter Court, Summer Court, the Higher Court and the Dark Court -I think it was one more?maybe... and they live among us but we cannot see them - ouuuuu spooky!
Anyway, I seriously consumed this book in like 4 days without even trying!!!!
Now I'm off for the second book of the series 'Ink Exchange'.
We'll see!
