review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-07-23 02:03
In Bonds of the Earth
In Bonds of the Earth (Book of the Watchers) - Janine Ashbless

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

I have no idea where to start, seriously! The Book of the Watchers series by Janine Ashbless is SO complex and absolutely amazing that I’m just....... speechless really. This series is rich in story telling with a great research and a marvelous writing style where the author blends many dimensions, of facts and fictions, together in such a way that the only thing I can say for this series is WOW! I had to read In Bonds of the Earth at a snail’s pace just to savor each chapter.

I’ve never read anything by the author prior to this series. I picked up book 1 of the Watchers series, Cover Him With Darkness, because 1. I was in search of a good angel-demon type book and 2. I loved the title. And boy it sucked me right in from the start; from the moment when little Milja met Azazel the Fallen, bound in a dank, dark cave, for eternity... awaiting another eternity. Azazel is called a demon, a fallen angel, Prince of Darkness or Satan as I found in some sources. I’ll personally stick to the story itself because many of these notions discussed in the book connected to the Book of Enoch is rather vague to me. But that didn’t hinder my enjoyment at all. The whole story behind Azazel and his many brothers’ fight with the good angels and how they were then entombed in various places in the world is told in book 1. It was such a fascinating story, with excellent visuals, such as Azazel’s fight with St. Michael and the destruction of his human family.

Milja, a girl born in a small mountain-bound village of Montenegro, has known The Prisoner since her childhood. The Prisoner was there always. Many had been in charge of him over the uncountable years, her father the priest, being the latest. Milja’s mother was already dead, so her father has been the center of her world... until the day she started having dreams of The Prisoner, whom she’d only met a few times; always with her father by her side. Her father has forbidden her to ever communicate with the prisoner, let alone release him, no matter how much he begs. Yet, the sad, heart-wrenching dreams of him in pain, absolutely misery of many, many years tore at Milja. Then one day, when she was around 20, she does the unthinkable. She goes to the cave alone to meet him for the first time in years since she went to school. The Prisoner was always in her thought, in her dreams, so much so that she only had one boyfriend but couldn’t even maintain that relationship. She knew by then who she belonged to, and she decides instantly that she’s going to release him.

Reading progress update: I've read 57 out of 384 pages.
Midnight Crossroad (A Novel of Midnight, Texas) - Charlaine Harris

I've read the prologue and the first four chapters. I'm still waiting for something to happen. I can see plot points hovering just out of reach, but for now, it's mostly introducing the characters.

Phantom of the Auditorium - R.L. Stine
Growing up, I didn't read much of R. L. Stine, because I was an easily frightened child. I found this in the Lending Library and wanted to see what my adult self thought of it.

I'll start by saying it's not scary. It's a bit suspenseful, but for the most part the chapters end with a cliffhanger that then turns out to be nothing at the start of the next chapter.

The plot was a bit predictable and horribly corny.

I did really like that Zeke and Brooke were just friends and there was no weird secret love thing going on. I'm a sucker for friendships that don't turn into creepy love triangles. 

Overall, it was a good read, but was more sad than scary.

I deducted half a star despite how much I loved this ridiculous book because it was riddled with grammatical errors. But wow, this was so bad/good I couldn't help but enjoy it. If you enjoy some high Texan society drama you should pick this up. So funny.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever - Jeff Kinney
A Sultry Love Song (The Gentlemen of Queen City) - Kianna Alexander

Stopping for the night at 8 hours and 33 minutes. 30 of those minutes were used to read aloud to the kids (3 picture books and 22 pages of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever). After the kids were in bed I started A Sultry Love Song by Kianna Alexander and currently stand at 53% done.

 

Now I just need some sleep. Tomorrow more reading and grocery shopping is on the agenda.

 

Good night and for those about to pull an all-nighter, we salute you.
