Blogoversary Event: The Great William and Christian Debate

**** NOTE THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SPOLERS OF SEERS OF LIGHT AND WHISPER OF LIGHT****

****NOTE THIS POST IS DEFINATELY RATED R****

READ AT YOUR OWN RISK

So I decided I would do a post on the 2 leading men in The Lights Series by Jennifer Delucy. William Maddox and Christian Wright. Two very sexy and appealing men but who is the best? Honestly, I can’t choose it is soo hard. Lets Team Edward or Team Jacob – that one is easy for me Team Edward. Team Peeta or Team Gale? Easy Team Peeta. Team Mychael or Team Tam? Easy! Team Mychael. But Team William or Team Christian. I’m having difficulties choosing just one! AH!

Second Warning: There will be spoilers so read at your own risk!

So I decided we shall ask five questions and I shall answer them to find out the winner.

  1. Who has the better accent?

Christian hands done! Who doesn’t love a British mans accent. I know I sure don’t.

  1. Who is better in bed and has better bed talk?

Yep, can’t believe I’m going to answer this one but after talking to both Lily and Nick about their horizontal mumbo’s (we are great friends so we can talk about stuff like that). I’m going to have to say William wins hands down. He apparently has sexy vampire skills that make it....well you get the point. And he is so sweet when he talks. I’m personally not for Christian’s talk but Nick seems to love it.

  1. Who is more attractive?

My pick is Christian there is just something about his blonde locks and buffness that I just love. I’m not for the lankiness of William.

  1. Who is more protective of their lady?

This a hard one and its going to both men. Christian stands up to Nicks dad and William stands up for his relationship with Lily. What more can you ask from two wonderful men?

  1. Who is smarter?

I’m going to give this one the William. He is pretty wise. He was smart enough to keep Christian out of the loop for a bit while Lily and him were dating.

Oh Noes! We are tied!!!! Well that didn’t help the debate. Maybe let’s try Pros and Cons?

William:

Pros:

  • Has amazing in skills in the bed

  • Is a vampire with a soul

  • He is quite the gentleman

  • Chooses to ignore Christian when he is being ass

Cons:

  • He chose Lily instead of me

  • Goes on dangerous tasks that could end with him dying

  • Being a vampire he is very unliked

Christian:

Pros:

  • Hot British accent

  • Very handsome

  • Kicks some major evil vampire ass

Cons:

  • Has an anger problem

  • Chose Nick over me

  • I dislike his bed side talk

Well it looks as though Christian is tied for Pros/Cons and William has an extra Pro. So that means William right?

Well I decided I would would take Jennifer’s Seer’s Soulmate quiz. You either get Christian, William or Paul. I got William. So I guess it is final.

I am Team William. But I still love you Christian. Please don’t hate me.

I hope you enjoyed The Great William and Christian Debate and make sure to leave me your thoughts on these wonderful men. What team are you?

Review: Whisper of Light by Jennifer Delucy

WOL%20cover%20-%20web

The saying goes that all men are created equal... but Nicole Abbot knows better. Lacking the supernatural gifts of the Sentients she has known all her life, Nicole has lived with her nose pressed to the glass, withering beneath the guilt of her own inadequacies and the disapproving glare of her father. It's easy to believe that the universe has forgotten all about her, but things are not always as they seem. With the arrival of Christian Wright, a handsome but complex Combatant with a troubled history, Nicole is forced to question everything she has ever believed about herself, proving that sometimes, our most flawed perceptions are those reflected in a mirror. Excerpt from Jennifer’s website.

*May contain spoilers from Seers of Light*

Whisper of Light was just a good as Seers of Light. We learn more about Nicole who was mentioned briefly in Seers of Light. I really like her character she was completely different from Lily. Nicole has so much that she must overcome. I think I did her crying for her. Well Lily picked William which means I got Christian but Christian is more interested in Nicole. I’m a little heartbroken that he’s not into me but that is okay Nicole needs someone to cheer her up more than I do.

This book really played with my emotions I felt happiness and sadness when Nicole felt it. I was also mad at soo many characters including my Christian. I am so happy that everything worked out for the best for the characters in this novel and I can’t wait to see what Jennifer has in store her readers with her next books.

Thanks again to Jennifer for hosting a “new” follower contest and choosing me to win Smile

Review: Seers of Light by Jennifer Delucy

seers_web

Lillian Hunt has never truly lived. Always sensing there was more to the world than is easily perceived, she feared that her instincts were stubborn flights of fancy, or worse, mental instability. But some things – disappearing strangers, tangible dreams and visits from malevolent creatures – cannot be ignored.

Is Lillian alone in her surreal little world or are there others like her? Will she reject a fated love or embrace the truth of what she is, unraveling the mystery of her life... Excerpt from Jennifer’s website.

I thoroughly enjoyed Seers of Light. This was another book that I did not want to put down mostly because of the characters. Jennifer made Lily, William and Christian so loveable even though I didn’t fully trust William. I thought there was something fishy about him but I still loved him. The series reminded me of the TV series Supernatural and if you guys know me I LOVE Supernatural so Jennifer got brownie points for that.

The book is fast pace and has lots of action and romance. I wouldn’t suggest this novel to the younger reader as the sex scene in the book is so freakin’ hot (yes I am a bit embarrassed to be saying this and I’m sure if my bf read my blog he wouldn’t make fun of me for the rest of my life but it was.) It’s seriously an 18+ scene.

I was jumping the different “team trains” as the book went on one moment I would be on Team William and the next I would be on Team Christian. I really couldn’t decide which one of the lovely guys I liked more. So I determined I would take whomever Lily left behind but I’m not telling you who :P She could have left me both of em! MWAHAHA you will have to read the book to find out.

I’d like to specially thank Jennifer for sending me *signed* copies of her novel. I won the “new” follower contest that she hosted this past fall. Thanks so much Jennifer! I can’t wait to read your other novels.

Blogoversay Event: Lets Talk Narnia + Giveaway

So I have a movie tie in edition of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader…I don’t know why I have it but I do and I decided to give it away because I have the collection already.

So I decided to do a little post on my thoughts of the Narnia book and movie series.

I actually stop reading  YotDT  I know I know Why did I do that? Well I got bored…I actually left like 20 pages, I thought I had more to read at the time but the BF told me he wouldn’t take me to the movie until I finished the book so I counted to see where I finished and how many pages I left and it was 20…I’m so lame. LOL Anyways while I was watching the movie (I went without the BF) I was like so I ended here. RIGHT before all the good parts lol figures. But I personally like the movies better. Please don’t hate me. I just find the books boring but I think its because I didn’t read them in publishing order and I haven’t gone past YotDT. But I really like the movies.

Do you like the books or movies better? Should I continue the series?

Blogoversary Event: Lets talk True Blood + Giveaway

True-Blood-Season-4-Promo-Posters

True Blood is one of my favourite shows on TV. I actually watched the TV Show before I read the book. I believe it was last year I picked up Dead Until Dark and I wasn’t really impressed with the novel. I preferred the TV Show. So I didn't continue the series. This April (tax season Confused smile) I had a really really bad True Blood itch. I didn’t have time to re-watch season 1 or 2 but I had 30 min of lunch to read so I decided I would pick the series up again. I got up to All Together Dead (I decided to take a break and read some books I got for review). I have to say I freakin’ LOVE Alcide. I bought myself an I <3 Alcide shirt and I FREAKIN’ hate Bill….Bill you royally piss me off. I still love me some Sam and Eric though.

Overall, I do prefer the TV Series to the book but this season (4) is really throwing me off. I can normally separate books from movies and vise versa but this season really bugging me so far. Why is Bill king? Sophie Ann plays a huge role (I find anyways) in books 6 & 7…. Umm how are you going to explain that? Or does HBO not think its going to 7 seasons? And why did the fairies turn into trolls??? I know I’m not that far into the series but I didn’t think the fairies were bad?!?!?!? Am I missing something that is the last few books?!?!?!?!?

I will say that I’m not a fan of the Sookie/Quinn story line. Why can’t Sookie and Alicde just do it already….they are totally for each other. I’m sure some people disagree with me but whatever I <3 Alcide! And I will tell the world lol.

Anyways I am giving away a season 2 True Blood journal as well as a Merlotte’s keychain

Review: The Crescent by Jordan Deen + Giveaway

The%20Crescent%20Cover

Becoming a werewolf is not an option for seventeen-year-old Lacey Quinn, but death can be a strong motivator.

Lacey is so focused on her future, that everyday life has past her by. Counting down the days to her eighteenth birthday, she's almost home free. But when she falls for the mysterious Alex Morris, she lands in the middle of an ancient war between two enemy wolf packs. Tempting dreams, tantalizing lies and a dangerous love triangle ensues, leaving Lacey heartbroken and confused.

Lacey’s fate rests in the hands of Alex and Brandon, but both are pulling her strings for their own agendas. Even as she slips further into the dark world of werewolves, Lacey struggles to find the truth and save the only family she’s ever known. Excerpt from Jordan’s website.

I would first like to thanks Jeremy West at Novel Thoughts for sending me a bookmark for The Crescent which spiked my interest in finding out more about the novel.

The Crescent is a quick and easy read. At only 190 pages, I breezed right through it and when it was over I wanted more! Jordan created a very interesting werewolf series. I like the different take on how the packs are made up and how a werewolf’s mate is chosen and breaks the union between mates. The sexual tension between characters was almost unbearable. I was sitting there thinking okay just do it already!

Jordan’s characters are easy to relate to and loveable. I love the love triangle that Jordan created. I unfortunately would have chosen differently. That means I can have one of the hotties instead of her. I’m looking forward to Half Moon. I have no idea where Jordan is going to take the series.

The Crescent is a good novel for any werewolf who is looking for a quick read.

3.8 out of 5

Review: Secrets and Shadows by Shannon Delany + Giveaway

Secrets_and_ShadowsFinalCover

A tale of teenage love, loss and—oh, yeah—werewolves.

The supernatural stakes are higher than ever now that more than just werewolves prowl the town of Junction--friendships will be formed, choices will be made and allies may become enemies...

Nothing's simple when you run with werewolves. Jess Gillmansen thinks she's seen it all but her eyes are about to be opened to even more danger and a reality far more paranormal than she's suspected. Excerpt from Shannon’s website.

Secrets and Shadows was just as awesome as I expected it to be. Jess and Pietr’s relationship is put through some serious obstacles. People we thought we trusted turned out to be a bunch of jerks. I have a new found love for Max. For being a horn dog he really truly does care for his family and friends.

I liked learning more about the werewolves’ history and seeing the similarities and differences Shannon’s werewolves have with other werewolves. We also learn about a new supernatural creature in this one and I for one didn’t see it coming (who it is will SHOCK you -  well it shocked me).

Shannon is the QUEEN of cliff hangers. I should have waited till August to read this one because I can not wait for Bargains and Betrayals to come out.

Review: Desires of the Dead + Giveaway

desires-of-the-dead-175

Violet can sense the echoes of those who've been murdered—and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life.

As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally she'd turn to her best friend, Jay, except now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike's tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger. Excerpt from Kimberly’s website.

Desires of the Dead was just as awesome as The Body Finder. I love that Vi and Jay’s relationship is still strong. They are just to perfect for each other it really makes me super jealous!  

Once again I had no idea who the bad guy was which I love because it really makes me think about the clues even harder. I do suck and fail at the game CLUE. But it’s all good fun when your wrong and you get surprised (I think it is anyways).

I like that Vi is able to talk more freely about her skills to certain people, it shows her character development. I can’t wait for The Last Echo and see how Vi’s character will develop further as well as her relationship with Jay.

Review: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins + Giveaway

Mockingjay

Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding. Excerpt from Suzanne’s website.

I honestly don’t know what to say about this book without giving anything away...I think my mind is still trying to wrap itself around the series being complete.

I thought the story was going to go a different way. Characters that I thought were going to die didn’t and characters that I thought were going to be safe weren’t. I did cry over that but I didn’t cry nearly as much as I thought I was going to. I was kinda let down by that fact.

Certain characters pissed me off with their actions – like really pissed me off. I almost jumped off the Team Peeta train and wasn’t going to hop on any other train! I really liked the last chapter of the book – it gave me an overall closure to the series.

I did find some parts of the novel I had to re-read because I was like what? What just happened? It was like something was missing and I was a bit confused until I re-read.

I thought Mockingjay could have been better. It doesn’t live up to Catching Fire or The Hunger Games in my opinion but it was still pretty good.

Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Catching_fire_c-210

 

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying. Excerpt from Suzanne’s website.

Suzanne does it again. I swear this series keeps me up at night. I read Catching Fire all day Sunday right after I finished The Hunger Games. I totally didn’t expect certain events to happen – I was in total shock and I did yell at the book....The boyfriend and step-dad had a good laugh at me.

Catching Fire was just as good as The Hunger Games. It kept your attention we learned more about the Capitol and characters. I’m still Team Peeta I <3 him! One good thing about this book was that it wasn’t as intense as The Hunger Games....I could actually breathe while reading this one. This is good because I don’t know if I would have made it if I was holding my breath.

As I said in my Hunger Games review you should really really pick this book up you won’t regret it.

I have a few ideas on what is going to happening during Mockingjay but I don’t know if I am right or not. I think there is going to be ALOT of tears though.

Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

HUNGER_GAMES

Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When her sister is chosen by lottery, Katniss steps up to go in her place. Excerpt from Suzanne’s website.

OH. MY. GOD.

Those three words sum up this book perfectly. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE The Hunger Games. It is seriously my favourite book. I don’t know why I didn’t read it before you all voted me to read but am I ever glad that you guys did!

The Hunger Games is broken into 3 parts and when each part ended that was like my 30 second bathroom and breather break. I’m pretty sure I was holding my breath while reading part 2 because I was gasping for air when it ended. My boyfriend was making fun of me for it telling me “It’s just a book...You’ll be okay.” Little did he know that The Hunger Games is so intense that you have to keep reading. I started reading at 4pm Saturday afternoon and I didn’t stop reading until 3a.m. minus the bathroom and supper breaks. I just couldn’t put it down.

I’m so glad The Hunger Games is going to be a movie because while I was reading it I was gasping and saying if this book was a movie I would be at the edge of my seat.

I love the chemistry between Katniss and Peeta. I’m totally a Team Peeta person – I can’t help it I just know so much more about him than Gabe that I have to go with him.

If you haven’t read The Hunger Games yet WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM! Lol Go out and BUY it now! You won’t be disappointed.

Also, maybe go buy some oxygen as well so that you won’t be gasping for air like I was.
