Review: Gabriel’s Redemption

By on jan 3, 2014 in Books

Gabriel’s Redemption By Sylvain Reynard My rating: 2 of 5 stars This series took a really unexpected turn. And not in a good way. The shift began around the second half of book two and it went from bad to worse in book 3. I don’t know where all the religious stuff came from, but it mingled with the story to such an extent, it ended up more like a religious book to me then the steamy romance I singed up for when I started reading this series. After enduring the whole thing, I still find Gabriel’s Inferno to be a good story. I just wished the author would come up with different paths to redemption then resorting to faith and religion. I’m an atheist, so it didn’t really have any appeal to me at all. But since I was already hooked by the leading couple I couldn’t just drop the story just because I couldn’t relate with what they were going through....

Review: Antigoddess

Antigoddess by Kendare Blake My rating: 4 of 5 stars I’ve always been a sucker for good stories. To me, there’s nothing more wondrous and entertaining than a good fiction book. When I was really young I remember that the very first piece of fiction that got my full attention was actually a three volume collection about the ancient Greek gods. I remember I used to spend countless hours by myself, wrapped up in those books, checking the story of the birth of each god/goddess and the whole mythology surrounding them, learning about how they used to be portrayed by a a wide range of artists through time and trying to decode their CRAZY, incestuous family trees. When I was just a bit older, I remember reading these really crappy (and summarized) adaptations for children of the Iliad and The Odyssey, by Homer. Even back then, the very concept of all those narcissistic Gods...

Review: Night of Cake & Puppets

By on jan 3, 2014 in Books

Night of Cake & Puppets by Laini Taylor My rating: 5 of 5 stars What a heart warming, endearing, sweet story! This lovely novella tells the story of Mik and Zuzana’s first date and kiss. I already loved Zuzana’s character but to actually be able to hear her voice has taken me WAY beyond my expectations. She’s so witty and then the whole fairy tale scenario she set up for their first encounter was so colorful and magic. And Mik is simply such a great guy! The perfect match. I was positively surprised by this book, so much I added it to my favorite’s shelf. Something I hadn’t done in a while, since Melina Marchetta pretty much ruined reading for my after raising the bar so high :3. But I recommend you read it right after book #1. I think it would make more sense then after book #2 as it’s suggested by the publisher. View all my...

Review: Vain

By on jan 1, 2014 in Books

Vain by Fisher Amelie My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book was such a surprise! When I started reading it I though “oh, crap. This is another ‘gossip girl’ book…”. Especially when Sophie Price, the main character, was first depicted EXACTLY like Blair Waldorf… But then came the big turn and the book started to go it’s own way, to prove it’s own points. I can say it grew and changed the same way Sophie did: it blossomed under my scrutiny. And that’s always was a beautiful thing to behold. View all my...

The intricate way in which my memory works. Or better, doesn’t work.

I can read literally hundreds of books and memorize characters names and their physical characteristics as well as full plots. But for the life of me I can never EVER remember the three digit waiting number for my order at the Koni Store…

Oh, screw this.

I’m thoroughly disgusted with the human race

By on nov 25, 2013 in Ramblings

Sometimes I fell like I’m in the midst of the freaking zombie apocalypse due to the amount of flesh eating bacterias living out there in the world, grasping to their futile existences by harborously avoiding the constant threat of being given a clear shot to the head. Little evil bloodsuckers disguised as good, hard working, regular people, lurking in the darkest alleys of life, trying to claw, to bite and to snatch pieces of the poor bastards of the world who actually HAVE functional brains and struggle to make their livings and to abide by universally accepted moral and honor codes in respect for civility and camaraderie. People who won’t share or help their peers out of spite and malice, boycotting others for no reason other than feeding their own insatiable hunger. Their own limitless vanity. Trying not to subside ever and seeking only to subsist.
