So far, my favorite book still.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - J.K. Rowling

So I haven't read the series, in about 15 or 16 years, so I am doing a reread of the series. This month I am reading Goblet of fire and the order of the Phoenix. But now onto the review of my favorite book in the series. 

Boy it's been so long since I read this, that I forgot how much I freaking loved this book. I also forgot, so many freaking details. And I forgot how much I freaking loved this book. I swear the book just kept me on my toes, and I caught myself gasping at certain parts in the book, that I completely forgot happened. 

I think one of the reasons I love this one so much is for one reason, the 3 bestfriends, after this book, really starts to lose their innocence. And #2, Siras black and Rupin!!!!!

I am just so happy that I love the book even more than the first time I read it, so very long ago. I can't wait to continue on with the series, even though they get darker and darker. Which is a good thing Because that's the way it should go.

Off to an awesome start of my reading of the New Year!!!!!!
Everless - Sara Holland

I really loved this book a whole lot. I was so happy that I was right about a certain character in this book. I really loved Jules I loved that she wanted to help her father so much. I am not sure how I feel about her father. The guys in the book were Roan and Liam, I loved that Liam was a bad boy!!!!! Roan I don't know how I felt about him either. I really want to know a lot more about Liam, so I hope he's more involve in the next book. Both of the guys weren't in the book a whole lot, I feel like Liam was in it a little more. The main bad character and Roan's finance we're in the book a lot more. 

The book is definitely at first a set up on what is going to take place in future books, but the last 100 pgs really started to pick up and get really interesting and definitely ends in a major cliffhanger. Which is really going to drive me crazy to have to wait for the next book in this series.

I thought the book was a 4 1/2*star book, but had to give it the full 5 *star rating because while I guess right about a certain individual, two other things that happened or was revealed at the end really surprised me, and I most definitely loved it but was sad about one of these things.

So I most definitely will be buying the next book whenever it comes out!!!!!!

Creepy but awesome books!!!!!
Year One - Nora Roberts

WoW this was such a freaking creepy book, that I hope will never take place. There is so many people that get introduced later one, that it does get confusing at times. That's why it didn't get 5 stars from me, even though I really loved it. Characters I really loved and are introduced at the beginning of the book, are, Lana, Max, Jonah, Fred, and Arlys. I did listen to the audio, I didn't buy the physical copy, yet at least.

I do have to say that there are such things as witches, Elves, and other types of supernatural individuals. I do also have to say Nora wasn't afraid to kill off characters that you might think are safe. So if you don't like these types of different elements, you might want to skip this one.

I really cried towards the end of the book, but like I said Nora isn't afraid to kill characters off. The ending I am not sure about, I still don't know how I feel about it, but I am leaning towards liking  how it ended, for right now.

My Review
I thought the audible part of the book was pretty good. I would give that part 4/5 stars, and the plot, characters, etc 5/5 stars.
I really enjoy the character of Keeve, I thought for being only 15, she was very grown-up. I thought she was very brave for all that was going on in her very young life. I really hope things turn out for her in the end. 
I also really loved the character of Kai who is also an anomaly like Keeva. I really hope that those two get together in the end. 
One character I am not sure about but am very interested in is Calix, whom is the bad guy of the book son. His torn right now between if he wants to be like his dad. I think he would love to be bad but it also terrifies him. I really hope he chooses the right path in the end.
Now the bad guy of the book whose name is Sobek, his such a jerk and what he does to those kids is just down right awful. And I really hope he gets it in the end.
The ending was one hell of a cliffhanger and I really can't wait for the next book in the series to come out, so I can see what happens next.
Back to the audible part of the review. I really have a hard time with them, just because I get distracted very easy. So giving my rating of 4/5 is like getting 5/5. I did buy the ebook to follow along with it. Then I went back just in case I missed anything and just read the ebook. So if you love audible books, I really think you'll enjoy this book a lot. But even if you don't like audible, I think if you bought the book you would really enjoy it a lot as well. The plot to me, I really loved, but what happens to these kids when they go to camp starting at the age of 5 is just so not right. And why Keeva, Kai, etc are anomalies is just so heartbreaking.

Awesome Book in my Favorite Series.
Apprentice in Death - J.D. Robb

I don't really listen to a lot of audible books, I am more of a e-book or paperback type of girl. I received a free credit so I decided to use it for this book, and I am glad I did. 

 

Okay now for my review. I thought the book was very interesting and had a lot of action and adventure. I just really love Eve and Roarke's relationship so much there my favorite book couple, the cop and the reformed crook. The book was interesting because the apprentice gender was hard for people to figure out. 

 

Eve is so awesome in this book and she really is getting better in the relationship depart. I love that she is starting to figure out that its okay to let other people in. Parts of the book are so sad, due to the fact that of course people are dying. The apprentice doesn't care who he/she kills, if there young or old, men or women, it's the killing that this individual cares about. 

 

Boy Eve really can't stand either the Trainee or the apprentice, Eve really wants both of them taken alive. The relationship between the Trainee and the apprentice I figured out pretty quickly, but why they were killing these individuals really surprised me.

 

One awesome thing in this book is that its Bella's first birthday and when she gets the present that Eve and Roarke bought her, the reaction from that little girl is priceless. Bella really loves Eve and Orake( that's how she says Roarke's name). 

 

I really loved this book, and when I have money I want to buy the book, since this one is in audible. I really can't wait until February when the next book comes out, it sounds like an awesome and interesting case. I think if you liked Some of JD Robb's earlier books then you'll enjoy this one as well, because in this book, one place where something tragic happened before in the earlier books, happens again in this book. I don't want to say anything more, you'll find out yourself if you read this book.
