Finished! : )
Angel Fire - L.A. Weatherly

First of all, I would like to express how utterly and extremely GLAD I am that Alex and Willow overcome all the obstacles and differences to get together again by the end of the book! : D In fact, I have given this book 4 stars instead of 3.5 just because of that :p Okay, so this book was also enjoyable plus it did not drag at the end like the first one. I like Seb and I am so happy that he will stick around even though he is still in love with Willow. As for Kara (ugh), nobody knows what happened to her but I am thankful she is out of the picture and NOT with Alex ( Ha!). Things were quite rushed and confusing in the end and I think the way everything just fell into place between Alex, Willow and Seb was, though exactly what I wanted, unsatisfactory and just way too conveniant after so much tension and misunderstandings being there. I wish that had been better constructed especially the way Willow realised she was NOT in love with Seb and the way they sort of confirmed that Willow was not causing Angel Burn to Alex...anyway, time to read Angel Fever now. : ) Oh and I really feel that the author should have come up with better and more imaginative names for angel killers instead of -yep- ‘Angel Killers’...it‘s an insult to Alex’s badass-ness. :p

Better Than I Expected!! :D
The Hollow - Jessica Verday

Don’t you love it when a book that had you feeling skeptical and doubtful turns out to be worth reading? Well, that’s the Hollow series in a nutshell...dark AND romantic! Now that I‘ve decided that any book in which I get totally absorbed and which I am unable to put down deserves at least four stars anyway, I am going to give this series an honest review. I enjoyed the trilogy so much that I read all three of them in three days without stopping to breathe...L.J Smith‘s words that these books ‘make you keep on reading without coming up for air‘ hit right on the spot! I had missed this feeling where you get drunk with the story and the characters and reading this series brought it all back. The plot reminds me of the Mediator series by Meg Cabot because the girl can see dead people including a really cute guy! I found the heroine, Abigail, okay enough but her attitude with her parents really got on my nerves and the words ‘ungrateful brat’ often came to my mind. The guy, Caspian, was so so so sweet and caring and an absolute gentleman...I liked his combination of green eyes and ‘shockingly white-blond’ hair with a black stripe in the middle! :p Yes, there were some loopholes and the ending was a bit rushed and unsatisfactory. Nevertheless, I had a great time with the books and THAT is what‘s important!

A Perfect Ending!
Isla and the Happily Ever After - Stephanie Perkins

Ah...how I missed this. The feelings and the excitement and of course, the ROMANCE...everything associated with Stephenie Perkin's books! I remember when I first (had the extremely good fortune to) read 'Anna and the french kiss' and I fell in love with it INSTANTLY! I'll praise it properly in it's own review but my point is that it was the BEST no doubt and 'Isla and the happily ever after' comes second to it. Still, I really really enjoyed reading it and the romance was drool-worthy as expected with the Josh and Isla moments making me grin like a moron...they were so so so CUTE! We get to see a new side of Josh and I love the sweet-vulnerable-caring side as much as the bad boy-brooding artist side of him. The way he treats Isla and those sketches and his graphic memoir...it was all so damn romantic that it almost made me swoon (sigh)! As for Isla, I liked her better than Lola but her stupid insecurities irritated me especially when they led her to break up with Josh in the middle. AAAAAND the icing on top??? Etienne and Anna get ENGAGED!!!!!! I felt like shrieking for joy and I'll insert a big YAHOO here for my favourite couple anyway! I loved this book and now I'm going to read it again in order to savour every moment of it! :-)

The Book of Tomorrow - Cecelia Ahern

Cecilia Ahern. Is. A. Genius. No doubt about that. Her stories, with that special touch of fairytales and magic, are one of a kind and I liked every book of hers that I've read but I enjoyed this one the most (aside from Thanks For The Memories because it's so romantic, of course :-D) because firstly, Tamara Goodwin is around my age and while I love the older heroines too, this one's more relatable...I feel a stronger connection to the story. Secondly, the plot is more interesting and suspenseful and the whole 'secret diary' thing is another thing I could relate to, seeing as I keep a journal myself (though mine definitely does NOT predict the future!). The presence of Weseley, a cute guy who's always there for Tamara throughout the story, was the icing on top! All in all, a grrreat read.

P.S I love the cover too...it's so pretty!

The Vampire Diaries And Their Undisputable Awesomeness
Origins - Julie Plec,L.J. Smith,Kevin Williamson

Books ARE better than their television counterparts and this is a certified fact...with the only exception being the Vampire Diaries. Why? Well, I watched the show before I read the books and I thought, "The show is so so good...the books must be INCREDIBLE!" I started reading and I realized that the two were completely opposite except for a few basics. Even Elena's personality and looks were not the same. More importantly, the story started to get weird after the first four books but I managed to read the next three because I am a Delena fan and craved more moments. After that, the story got boring and stupid and dragged out...I couldn't go on any more. On the other hand, the show is fast-paced, thrilling, exciting and entertaining alongwith everything I expected from the books. Coming to the book I'm posting about, Stefan's Diaries follow the show's storyline thus these books are worthy of praise by default. I really enjoyed reading this and I could picture the amazing cast in my head for the characters! I am so excited for the second book which I'll start as soon as I'm done with this review! :-)
