Hey Bloggers,

Long time no squeak. As you can already guess time is quickly approaching for the Member Free Book-athon. You have just a few more days to get yourselves a free book or two. So without further a-do, let's get down to book reviews.

Unlike what my current read says, I've kind of gone off topic and taken an interest in another book. Very much like me by the way. So with that in mind I bring to you. 'The Seven Rays.'

Now this book, I have to say was not the best book I've ever read in my life time. But it did have a good story line. Beth the main character, is like every other teen until she start seeing this little pink and gold dots in her vision. It comes and goes and then it starts to get annoying and worrisome. The dots float around people and them they turn into cords of golden light.

When she starts to think something is major league wrong with her, she gets this strange package sent to her at her school. Inside... is a golden letter.

Now I'm not going to say any more, but what I can say is that the story confused me, and I wasn't very excited about the ending. It was easy enjoy to follow, but it seems thrown together, not all there, and left way too many doors left open and untied. But I hope Pillage will be better, which I'm now revisiting with high hopes. Until next time...

Darkness, Keys, and Creatures

Long time no see. Boy has it been a very long and busy weekend. Still it's been great. book store included. But this week I thought instead of a good love story, of which I noticed I've been writing a lot of reviews for, I've decided to go darker, deeper, and more action.

Bwahahahaha!!!! That's the feeling I got from a very beautiful book I've just read. Incarceron by Catherine Fisher. This book has a beautiful sense of self I must say. Unlike so many I've read and believe me when I say that it's quite a few, this one takes de cake.

Now unlike the Tunnels series, which I have just bought the third book of the series, love it. This one is about a prison, not just any prison, a prison that gives life, it deals death, it watches all. Creepy enough, nope not even close! I was sitting in my little bitty dinky apartment wrapped up in my blanket and reading this with a death grip. Every time I read of the eye watching Finn (one of the main characters) a chill went up my spine. This prison... is capital CREEPY.

Unlike most stories I've read it had more then one main character, so you are seeing it from two different perspectives. From Finn who lives Inside the prison and Claudia who lives Outside. Finn wants out, Claudia wants in. This isn't the past, this is the future and by that I mean creams that take wrinkles away and people living to be two hundred years old.

Finn has no memory of his past and knows he must have come from the outside, Claudia has an arranged marriage to the prince. Finn wants to know where he came from, Claudia wants to escape her father's plans. (Let me tell you her father is S.C.A.R.Y.) So what happens next, well... both find a key and each other, both want to know what this key is for, and both want to stop Incarceration and the people who are using it to their advantage before it's too late.

So if you would like to read an amazing mystery, with darkness, thrills and chills, I suggest picking this up and reading it. Well, enjoy your week and I'll be back as soon as I can. Until next time...

Sweet Love Stories Still Do EXIST!!!

So another day another dollar. Boy has it been a fun week. Of course the rain won't stop so I've been reading till I literally pass out from exhaustion. Raining... hmmm what to do? Book Review?

So here we are. Today being exceptionally wet, I thought a good love story review would be good. (Picking from about ten books I've read this week.)It is Meg Cabot's book Victoria and the Rogue. I've read many of Meg Cabot's books and was floored that she had done historical fiction to boot. So I ordered this, waited a month, found out my order had been canceled and had to wait another month before it came in. Suffice it to say... it was worth it...

This is a beautifully sweet love story, (with no sex, thank you!) The story revolves around a Duchess and her travel to London where she will be living with her hysterical and large family, the Gardener's, (her aunt and uncle) While on her way from India, having lived her life with three bachelor uncles, she is proposed to by a Duke. Pretty normal...

Victoria's life revolves around sticking her nose into other people's life and managing THEIR affairs. That is until she meets the captain of the 'Harmony'. He constantly unhinges her with his cocky personality, and more then a little blunt answers. She can't manage him to her utter disgust.

With her vast fortune and her plans to wed Duke Hugo, she is completely unnerved when things come to light about her betrothed from a very unsavory captain...

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In lot of ways it reminded me of Jane Austen's character Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, but with a less lengthy storyline.
