The Undead Heart by Tate Jackson
The Undead Heart - Tate Jackson

I started and stopped this book numerous times and have come to the conclusion that it's not my mood, it's just not meant for me.

This is a pretty long book (for me anyway, clocking in at close to 400 pgs on my ereader) and in all honestly I have very little patience and even less reading time and something about the writing just didn’t work for me. I often felt as if I were being told things instead of experiencing them and it made it difficult for me to connect to the characters and fall into the story. I also didn't care for the heroine Beck and found her personality a bit unpleasant. That paired with the fact that I felt disconnected emotionally from her troubling experiences (beatings, rape, etc.) helped me decide to put this one down for good. Nope, not for me.

I'm not going to rate this because I didn't get far despite my many attempts.

Top 10 of 2013: Book Boyfriends
Ladies and gentleman after much consideration and google image searching of hot guys. I present to you, the much anticipated, Top 10 Book Boyfriends of 2013!
You said it, Abby Lee Miller, but these guys made the cut!
1. River West- Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke
Oh River! I never trusted you but you were still oh so swoony! He has that rich, east coast prepster thing going for him. I just can't resist that as evidenced by Gansey on last years list. At least I know my type rich, dark, and slightly crazy.
Death- Endless Knight by Kresley Cole
I love me a doomed ship and this looks like one of those. Death and Evie have this epic shared history, and he is so lonely. I just want it to work out for him. For my fancast I picked Freddie Stroma best know ,probably, for playing McClaggen in Harry Potter. "I wouldn't mind getting on a first name basis with him, if you know what I mean". 10 Points for Gryffindor if you recognized that quote.
 3 Ink - Indelible by Dawn Metcalf
Despite a borderline cliche entrance I knew I was going to love Ink! He has that distant, not quite brooding, air about him and I just couldn't get enough of it! I need the sequel now.
4 Adrian Ivashkov - The Indigo Spell & The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead
I hadn't seen Douglas Booth fan cast as Adrian Ivashkov before, but I can totally see it! He's got that effortless hot thing going on. Also I'm digging the 5 'o clock shadow *swoons*
I also wanted to congratulate Adrian on being the only book boyfriend to make it on the list 2 years in a row! Lets take a moment to celebrate that.
5 Warner - Unravel Me by Tahreh Mafi
All of the Chapter 62 hype was accurate and the man that made it all possible was Warner! There was no way we wouldn't be on this years list!
6 Jackson Tate - Rush by Eve Silver
I was hesitant about reading Rush because it had aliens. I should not have been concerned! It was an all round awesome read. And Jackson Tate made it all the better. He was secretive, a bad boy, brooding... meaning he was exactly my type!
7 Isaiah - Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
I think the guy on the book cover is perfect for Isaiah; but whoever that CW hottie on the right is...yum! He is also a great cast! He's pulling off the shaved head and tattoo's without coming off as scary.
8 Ethan Landry- The Rules for Disappearing by Ashley Elston
Ethan is a Louisiana farm boy. I have learned living in SD that farm boys never look like this guy! But a girl can dream! Out of everyone on my list Ethan was genuinely the best boyfriend out of the lot! Supportive, kind, and willing to do anything to help Meg.
9 Naji - The Pirate's Wish by Cassandra Rose Clarke 
Naji is an assassin so the entire time I was reading I pictured him like this. lol. Not exactly swoony but I love the way he treats Ananna! And his character development made him a great male lead.
10 Chris Henderson - That One Summer by CJ Duggan
 I just love the Onslow boys I wish I could scoop them up and put them all on the list. After That One Summer though, Chris is my favorite! As CJ put it male model Adam Cowie is wickedly handsome and beautifully broody. The perfect Chris Henderson!
Honorable Mention
The Darkling - Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo
Okay, I know I said Adrian was the only book boyfriend to make it on the list two years in a row; but I would be remiss if The Darkling wasn't on here somewhere! Afterall, I did represent him in the Summer Crush Tournament! After Siege and Storm my feels are all muddled but he is still definitely one of my favorites and after the spoiler Leigh gave us (look below) I have high hopes he will make a comeback in Ruin and Rising! Plus, I do love a doomed ship!

A Darkling/Alina snippet from Ruin and Rising courtesy of Leigh for the holidays!
“Why waste my anger on you when the fault is mine? I should have anticipated another betrayal from you, one more mad grasp at some kind of childish ideal. But I seem to be a victim of my own wishes where you are concerned.” His expression hardened. “What have you come here for, Alina?”
I answered him honestly. “I wanted to see you.”
I caught the briefest glimpse of surprise before his face shuttered again. “There are two thrones on that dais. You could see me any time you liked.”

When Angels Fall
When Angels Fall - Stephanie Jackson *I recieved this book in exchange of a honest review from the Paranormal, Fantasy, Dystopia and Romance Readers, Writers and Reviewers group

Wow, I didn't expect this book to be so good. This book had me hooked, and wanting more. Gabriel is my favorite character in this book. He was willing to loose his chance to go back to heaven for Danielle...Wow. I couldn't put this book down. Between Gabriel and and all of the action, I was hooked. The author has written a book that I have fell in love with. I loved all of the characters, and how Gabriel could strike everyone down in a flash. Thanks for this amazing book. I am a fan! Make sure to pick up this book, it is really amazing!

Blood Thirst
Blood Thirst - Stephanie Jackson,Tate Jackson My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!

I loved this story just as much as the first one. It had more humor, time travel though not planned, the family of vampires and hunters, out of body experiences, archangels, demons, old family turning up with rekindled problems, new friends, all sorts of changing of species, love, and so much more. This book kept me guessing, but also laughing so much. The humor is this book reminds me of when I first started reading Shelly Laurenston. I love books that make me laugh, cry, fume, and wish for the love found is books like this. If you love paranormal romance, then you will love this story. Only thing not to love is the cliffhanger ending and having to wait for the next book.

**received the book free from the Making Connections group for an honest review
