Archangel’s Consort by Nalini Singh

(Guild Hunter Series, #3)

My Teaser:



“You asked me once what you should call me.”

Elena scowled. “I think you said something like ‘master,’ but I’ve decided I had to be hearing things.”

“What would you like to call me?”

That made her pause. “Husband” was too human, “partner” factually wrong for a being as powerful as an archangel, “mate”… perhaps. But none of it was quite right. “Mine,” she said at last.

Talking about cheesiness! I know that could be lengthy enough as a teaser but I just had to add this one more. Illium is just too smexy!


Illium, with his wings of silver-kissed blue and a face designed to seduce both males and females, not to mention his ability to do most impossible acrobatics in the air, would provide a worthy diversion. The fact that he’d decided to ditch his clothing was just icing on the cake.

[REVIEW TO COME]
What I’m Reading


Synopsis
A zombie who yearns for a better life ends up falling in love—with a human—in this astonishingly original debut novel.

R is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He doesn’t enjoy killing people; he enjoys riding escalators and listening to Frank Sinatra. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.

Not just another zombie novel, Warm Bodies is funny, scary, and deeply moving.

[Review] Replay by Keira Lea

Replay
by Keira Lea
Kindle Edition

Published April 12th 2011                                      


Kelsee Lewis has a new school, a prima donna best friend, and one week to write a hit play. Throw in a self-obsessed mom and an absent executive dad, and it’s no wonder she has panic attacks—complete with time-warp special effects. When Kelsee meets comic book maven Quinn, she realizes the attacks give her the ability to rewind time. 
Replaying life seems like the best way to erase mistakes. But will second chances leave Kelsee flailing in the orchestra pit alone?


Goodreads




My thoughts?
First I want to say that this books is an original, of all the books I’ve read this one really stands out story wise and character wise. I like the characters as well as the story telling. Reading this book is really fun it is enjoyable through out the whole read. I somehow found myself giggling with some of the lines. Another thing I also like is the very unique chapter titles.

Replay is a story of Kelsee Lewis who has a new school, a prima donna best friend, and one week to write a hit play. Then she met Quinn a comic lover, after that she found out that she has a super natural power to turn back time.

What if you could rewind time? this line made me read this book. I honestly don’t know what to do if I have the powers to rewind time? Will I use it for my own benefit or for benefit of others?

All in all this has been a great read but it’s not really my taste in books, for me it is Original but it somehow lacks the things I really look for a book.

And she has organized the most perfect and most vicious of welcomes for Elena…

Goodreads


My thoughts?
Now I already loved the first book, the Angels’ Blood, so I’m not even surprised that I felt exactly the same for this one. This is as stunning as the first book, perhaps even more. It has bewitched me in a serious way.

Nalini Singh has yet again showed us the darkly beautiful world of the angels and vampires in her second installation of the Guild Hunter series, the Archangel’s Kiss. This book followed the awakening of Elena, the Guild Hunter, from a year long coma to find out that she now belongs to the dangerous but dazzling Archangel of New York, Raphael.

And then here comes Raphael’s Seven – the beautiful and dangerous group of three vampires and four angels who vowed to protect their Sire even if it would cost them their own lives. They have different characters and I find them really intriguing. And yes, I felt the urge to mention them in my review because I felt like these beautiful men were one of the reasons for my fascination of this book. Seriously, some of them have histories that are itching in my mind that I couldn’t wait to be unraveled.

The story itself was captivating. I’ve always liked mystery and action and this book has given me exactly what I wanted. And yes, this is also seriously told in an explicit way. But I bet many would like it for that matter. The relationship of Elena and Raphael has been really entertaining, I guess. And anyway, Raphael could do or own anything he wants to, he’s that powerful. Was that a little shady? You can read it and it wouldn’t be that shady anymore.

The world wherein the Guild Hunter series have been revolving really fascinates me even until the second book. I should be able to already get the hang of it and yet, I’m still enchanted to the deadly world of the angels and vampires and how they interact with the humans.

And somehow, I get this feeling like the Archangels are of some sort of like the Greek gods or something. They rule their own respective territories and they try so hard to somehow, dangerous and cruel as they already are, minimize their viciousness to avoid abhorrence from their subjects. This book gives me a feeling like it’s in some kind of a mythological world somewhere and is not really in this dimension but yet it has the territories’ names that are actually in use in our own good old home planet right now.

Now I can’t wait to read the third book of the series, the Archangel’s Consort. I have no doubt how amazing it’s going to be. So I’m really looking forward to it. There are still mysteries yet to be discovered so I will not miss it for sure. And even having not finished the whole series yet, I can say that these books are ones of my favorites in the paranormal world.

[Review] Shopaholic Takes Manhattan by Sophie Kinsella


Shopaholic Takes Manhattan 

by Sophie KinsellaPublication Date: January 1st, 2011

Mass Market Paperback, 388 pages
Published:March 2nd 2004 by Dell
 (first published September 3rd 2001)               

The irresistible heroine of Confessions of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Ties the Knot is back! And this time Becky Bloomwood and her credit cards are headed across the Atlantic.…

With her shopping excesses (somewhat) in check and her career as a TV financial guru thriving, Becky’s biggest problem seems to be tearing her entrepreneur boyfriend, Luke, away from work for a romantic country weekend. And worse, figuring out how to pack light. But packing takes on a whole new meaning when Luke announces he’s moving to New York for business—and he asks Becky to go with him! Before you can say “Prada sample sale,” Becky has landed in the Big Apple, home of Park Avenue penthouses and luxury boutiques.

Surely it’s only a matter of time until she becomes an American TV celebrity, and she and Luke are the toast of Gotham society. Nothing can stand in their way, especially with Becky’s bills miles away in London. But then an unexpected disaster threatens her career prospects, her relationship with Luke, and her available credit line! Shopaholic Takes Manhattan—but will she have to return it?

-Goodreads

My Thoughts:

Reading Shopaholic Takes Manhattan is just pure BLISS! Just when you can’t laugh any harder, here strikes Rebecca Bloomwood again in a crazier, funnier and wittier second installment of the Shopaholic series! Absolutely, Becky is my most favorite chick-lit character. EVER. With a character just so outrageously funny, totally entertaining, and one who will drive you crazy, this is a wonderful book simply I could not put down and just the thought of this book even after I finished this, it doesn’t fail to make my lips curve upward. (:

In the second installment, Becky goes to the Manhattan with Luke, in attempting to making it big. I’ve witnessed her misadventures throughout the book, and she’s just utterly entertaining! Who would have thought of wearing her clothes on top of each other just to bring her whole wardrobe on a three-day trip, or faking out your boyfriend is around when he’s nowhere to be seen? I swear, I would lost count if I try to count the times I laughed my head off! But oddly enough, she wasn’t able to contain her control again, and she was in a skyrocketing debt. Again. Because seriously, staying in Manhattan where welcoming shopping stores are around, she just couldn’t resist. But she tried! So there comes her hilarious excuses again and all, and of course, when you read the first series, now you’ll get the picture. She just would do anything. But as much as she keeps me laughing all the time, I couldn’t help but really feel sorry for her downfalls every time. I love Becky and I hate it when one day she’s at the top of her game, and the next… everyone is turning her down. I mean, she makes mistakes. She can be careless at times, but she doesn’t deserve to be treated as a joke by everybody else. I immensely love Becky not just because she makes me laugh, but because she’s also a character to admire. She’s a strong woman, and at the end she didn’t fail me because she tried to fix every single mistake she did.

And unmistakably, Sophie Kinsella is such a delicate writer! I commend her skills of writing such a light, funny, fast-paced and inspiring piece which will lighten your mood after a bad day. I am thankful for her for a Rebecca Bloomwood, because she’s such an inspiration! I totally missed her the second I finished the book, and I sure will complete reading the whole series! 😀
