Must READ! Mortal Instruments #5 – City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

Do you get that feeling when you want to do something you really wanted to do (like going to the toilet..eww bad example, sorry!) but can’t because you have this other responsibility to do (yeah, because going to the toilet wastes precious time when you’re almost done preparing a very complicated dinner).

Well, my life sucks that way everyday…as much as I want to curl up with this…

Mortal Instruments #5 City Of Lost Souls

…but can’t. I have the book just hanging out on my bookshelf…beside THIS one

Mortal Instruments #4 – City of Fallen Angels

…which I still haven’t read until now **poor me**

Ever since I stumbled upon the first three books by Cassandra Clare, I’ve been hooked and I can’t stop myself from pulling so many all nighters just so I could read the book. I’ve had many sleepless nights but they were ALL WORTH IT.

That’s the awesome power of Clary and Jace’s somewhat “taboo” love story could get you.

But the there’re still the Infernal Devices ( Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince, Clockwork Princess) which to many are like MANNA from heaven, given through an angel named Cassandra Clare.

I can’t stand it, I MUST READ! :))))))

When Seducing A Duke by Kathryn Smith (TOO HOT! :D)

When Seducing a Duke (Victorian Soap Opera, #1)When Seducing a Duke by Kathryn Smith

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you haven’t yet read this book then all I can say is: OH-EM-GEE you live under a rock, you’re missing a lot in life!!!

Story goes…Greyden Kane is your typical duke: lusty, hot for woman’s form, looking for redemption and that ever elusive feel of belonging-ness. For that he hides under a mask (uh, literally). He’s so torn and wrecked inside that he couldn’t even let himself be in love with the girl who caught his heart, Rose Danvers. Lucky for him, she reciprocates his love ten-fold (although as love story’s goes, they don’t know yet until the near-ending that they get to say those 143’s and 1433’s). They have great chemistry (first chapter and you’ve got a very hot, hot scene!) and passion is like second-skin/sweat…sex is awesome! But Greyden is torn and it is up to Rose to sew him back up and make him feel like the man she had always thought he was…even without all the trimmings!

Personally…Whoo! High-five! Awesome! Brilliant! Magnificent! Need I say more????

What’s different about this series?

Well for starters, Kathryn Smith had done major input on everything sensual…you might want to turn the AC on hih coz reading this book would surely put El Nino to shame (FYI: El Nino is extreme drought…imagine the heat and dehydration…now THAT’s how the story would leave you **hyperbole** 🙂 ).

Anyway…I just found that the characters really had an in depth relationship with each other–not just because they’re lusting after the other–but because they are in a LOT OF WAYS involved with one another. Greyden knew Rose’s father and Rose had always looked up to her father, until the day the looked-upon father put shame on their name–but without them knowing the real story behind it aside from Greyden himself. Rose was personified here as a “somewhat” innocent (although I know many would disagree), she seeks for what she wants by herself. She’s brave, spirited, strong-willed, dedicated and dumb.

Sorry for the irony but if we base it on reality (well, yeah going back to historical times then…), girls Rose’s age wouldn’t be thinking of what Rose did (pretend to be a hooker and let herself into the devil’s lair…and made him have his way with her). Somehow, women would ALWAYS manage to find a way to attract their mate. What Rose had decided and done upon herself was just something that would normally backfire the wrong way.

But this is fiction!

And the simple fact that Ms. Kathryn Smith placed a plot that had me hanging on to every scene and every word…the effect was simply ROMANTIC!

What a way to start a FEBRUARY!

So have you read the book? What did you think about it? Tell me what you think!

Tales from the Temple 3 Anthology by Delilah Devlin, Anya Bast, Diana Hunter, Cheyenne McCray, Mary Wine, Sherri L. King

Tales from the Temple III (Shikar)Tales from the Temple III by Jaid Black
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What’s better than a book…take Anthologies! Stories in one! Among all the books, the one that I enjoyed the most was Sherri L. King’s Voyeurs Overexposed, which was a real humorous one among the story theme. Delilah Devlin as always makes the most engaging story in her Raptor’s Prey. There’s something about reading anthologies that is both fun and efficient. It’s like a book-spree but with different authors under a similar genre built to make the reader feel well-loved!

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Since this was free…:) Well, this books was a pleasant surprise for me for when I read Delilah’s books, there’s always that tough interior that everyone adores about her and in this free read, well, I found the story really sweet!

And that makes Delilah such an awesome writer with so many aspects in her work that no one would ever expect what genius she has next!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What can I say, Ms. Devlin is really awesome! Despite the fact that the story was only a few pages, she easily retails the character’s life like a novel, and makes the character come out from her written words! This was a really hot free read and I’m thrilled that Ms. Devlin still gives us worth reading…for free! For us! Thank you!

Reading Romances Challenge 2012.

The title says it all.

Reading Romances is going to be hosting this Romance Challenge of 2012 that will showcase reading, oh yes, that’s right, ROMANCE.

The books read and reviews written would be linked together and although it appears like a lot to tackle with all that had logged up my central processes (brain)…the rules are quite flexible and able! Books and reviews would be linked together and posted on the blog sites and/or the online bookshelf sites like Goodreads.

I’m such a big fan of romance and this is like THE best yet! : D

I’m so looking forward for what I will be ordering in Amazon for this…

Anyone who wants to hook up on the challenge as well just click on the link and we’ll see each other’s challenge reads!
