Good Characters and story
Soulmates (Drag.Me.To.Hell, #2) - Nadine... Soulmates (Drag.Me.To.Hell, #2) - Nadine Nightingale

Amanda was a witch and Alec was a witch hunter they were born and raised to hate each other as technically Amanda and Alec were enemies. Alec and Amanda want nothing to do with each other. Amanda is living in NY going to school at NYU and had a waitressing job - trying to live like a normal person with a magic free life and that wasn’t easy. She keeps having nightmares of Alec being hurt and dying. Amanda had promised to not try to contact Alec but something is going on. The nightmares are really wearing on Amanda. Amanda is also still dealing with the feeling of betrayal she feels from Alec.   She also feels like she is constantly being watched. Then weird things start to happen and Amanda starts to question what is going on and maybe she is in danger. Then one morning Jesse- Alec’s brother- shows up on her doorstep with a barely conscious Alec who looks like he has been attacked. Jesse begs Amanda for her help. Alec and Amanda had wanted nothing to do with each other and Alec had basically been a butt to Amanda but she can't turn her back on him and not try to help him. Alec had sold his soul and only had a few days until his time to live was up. So Amanda gets help from her best friend Bonnie who uses Cajun voodoo and starts out to try to help Alec. Bonnie and Chelsea were Amanda’s roommates.  

I really enjoyed this book until the end and then found a big cliffhanger and i hate cliffhangers. And that brought down my rating quiet a bot. I did like the way Amanda and Alec interacted with each other when he wasn’t being a butt. But then again Amanda isn’t always the nicest person and even calls herself a bitch. I loved the twists and turns in this book. I also really wanted Amanda and Alec to work things out and be happy together. This was fast paced and I really liked the plot. This had: witches, witch hunter, demons. A demon strip club. Selling a soul. Love, action, suspense, emotional turmoil, a little voodoo, mystery, and so much more. You should read the first book before this one to have all the background and things read smoother at least I think so. I liked that the author showed some of Amanda’s past to show us why she acts like she does. Alec could be very confusing and frustrating. Even though I had really liked this book the cliffhanger really disappointed me. I do wish i could have rated this a 3.5 though

The Nightingale - Kristin Hannah

I predict that Vianne's present-day self will start being less pessimistic and upset about her current life and start being appreciative of the life she has. 

 

I think this because she in the present day, she is an older woman who has survived the war, and is now telling her story to her son, who is incredibly curious (and doesn't remember or know about certain details like her abusive relationship). 

 

I'm making this prediction because of my prior knowledge about when people reflect, much like the "bench scene" in the movie Forrest Gump.  Forrest tells his story to strangers and is able to reflect that "life is like a box a chocolates: you never know what you're gonna get."  Even though he went through hard times, he was able to reflect (positively) about how it's up to chance.

quote 2018-04-17 18:23
“I know now what matters, and it is not what I have lost. It is my memories. Wounds heal. Love lasts.”
The Nightingale - Kristin Hannah

Vianne, one of the main characters, says this in one of her flashbacks.  I connect with this quote so much, as should we all... what do we remember of our memories, or at least try to?  Love. Even if we try to recall the hurt that we truly felt in a moment, we can conjure some of it to fruition, but it will never be as bold as that first sting; time diminishes the wound. We live and move on.

 

Vianne says this after talking about a troubled time in her life, and searching for love in the wrong places (I'm not placing a spoiler-alert here... you MUST read this book!).
