Take This Book Away From Me
Visions of Heat - Nalini Singh

“The darkness would never again steal a life. Even if Faith had to end his.”

 

“Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous - aching need...exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.

Changeling Vaughn D'Angelo can take the form of either man or jaguar, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar's instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith's sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced - and keep her from Vaughn.”

This is the second book on the Psy-Changeling series and even more intense than the first one. Boy, if the third book keeps this pace I won’t survive more than a few pages.

 

 

The Psy-Changeling series changes the main POV in every book. We had Sascha on the first one, this time we have Faith. In many ways, Faith was more likeable to Sascha mainly because her changes, although extreme, seemed completely natural. Her adaption to emotions took time enough for it to seem believable.

 

I’ll give extra points for the author in here. Nalini Singh didn’t erase the characters from the last book completely on this one. She adapted the book to have them in a more side plotted point, but they were still important nonetheless.

 

This book is intense. It’s been some time since I haven’t read a book so fast, but it’s was hard to keep my eyes out of the pages for long. I don’t care much about the sex scenes, but the plotline, the characters, the dialogue, everything was screaming of fire and I don’t think this book is called “Visions of Heat” without reason.

 

 

I’m so addicted I can’t even call this series guilty pleasure anymore. It’s just plain pleasure. I need the next book. I’M TAKING MONEY FROM MY RETIREMENT BACKUP,GUYS.

 

Sentence: I am boucing around like a demented rabbit. Recommended!

 

 

Edit: So apparently the next book will have a male Psy as the main character. GOOD.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2014-02-11 14:30
The Best of Me - Nicholas Sparks The Best of Me - Nicholas Sparks

 

Ok, let’s do this, and btw I will spoiler the hell out of this review, so if you’re not looking for that, you better click away right now..

For real.. right now..
For the longest time I’ve had about a million Nicholas Sparks books on my Kindle, without ever starting one, and now I know why, because seriously dude, what the fuck?

There were so many things in this book that I hate. So. Many. I mean, if you’ve read any of my other reviews where there is a cheating wife/husband (hello, first spoiler) then you’ll know how much I fucking hate that shit. Cheating? It’s bad, we can all agree on that right? And yes you can normally read my slight hatred of that in reviews where cheating in a general subject. But the hatred goes to another level, (keep reading and you’ll see what I mean) when the cheating wife/husband is the main character, the person you’re supposed to ‘connect’ with, the character you’re supposed to actually ‘like’ and fuck no, Nicholas Sparks, I don’t fucking want to read about a cheating wife having sex with her long lost childhood sweetheart (hello, spoiler 2) while her son is fighting for his life after a car accident (hello, spoiler 3)! I mean, WTF dude?

I hope the sex was good and worth it!

I fucking hate storylines like this. Hate, hate, hate! Because the person I feel for is not the goddamn cheating wife, no it’s the husband who’s had to live with being fucking 2nd in line, knowing that his wife is fucking in love with her first freaking teenage love, and seriously, what the fuck? Why not write the story from the husbands POV? Let’s see his side instead of the fucking cheating wife, he’s the one I feel bad for, not the cheater, and omg, can you tell how much I hate cheating?

And then the ending.. Omg.. I have no words for how un-fucking-fair that is to the husband! You give the heart of the wife’s teenage love, the one she CHEATED with, to her son who needs a heart transplant (hello, spoiler4)?!? Are. You. Fucking. Kidding. Me. Right. Now.

For the rest of his life, the husband has to go through life, with his wife having, not only old fucking love letters, she takes out when she misses her TEENAGE LOVE, too much, but she also has her TEENAGE LOVE’s heart inside her son, giving her son life?? The son she made with her HUSBAND??


ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME WITH UNFAIRNESS RIGHT NOW?!

And then you might say, “but this is how the world works, Milla, this is what happens in real life” and to you I’ll politely say: “Fuck. You.” If I wanted to read about “real life” I would read my goddamn diary and not a fictional book, ok?

1 star.

My Story - Elizabeth Smart,Chris Stewart

 

I probably should have stopped reading this early on when I realized that it would be somewhat of a religious book. Well, not like the bible or anything, but the author pretty much thanked God for getting her kidnapped, and so I should definitely have stopped reading at that point, because Milla + religion = eye rolls.

 

Let’s get back to that though…

 

The reason why I should have stopped reading, is because I literally can’t write a review of this book, where I don’t focus on the religion, and I should be able to do that, because this is a book about a girl who got kidnapped when she was 14 and lived 9 months in hell(?) and I should be able to write a review about that, but instead I just want to go on and on about how stupid religion is, because it makes 14 year old girls THANK GOD FOR GETTING KIDNAPPED AND RAPED BY A SICK OLD MAN!!!

 

*exhale*

 

 

I’m glad she lived to tell this story, I really am, and I’m glad it seems she’s moved on and is living a great life now. I’m really happy about that. And I’m not an awful person, I’m really not, and I do respect other peoples beliefs, and also choice of religion (I do), but at the same time I have to [insert eye roll] when the girl in the book literally thought that it was GOD who put an actual cup of water next to her pillow, one night when she was thirsty and hungry. She literally thought that it was GOD, people!! Honey, if your God had the power to put an ACTUAL CUP OF WATER next to your pillow, I’m pretty sure he could have, you know, unchained you from that tree too, ok?

 

For reals, I can’t.

 

 

Anyway.. I’ve read a few of these survivor stories, and it’s really great to read what people are capable of surviving, how strong we are when we need it the most. In this case, I just wish she would take all the credit herself instead of giving it to some dude who lives on a cloud in the sky..

 

2 stars.

When someone says they read Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and didn't really like it...
