Characters:Cammie Morgan,Bex,Liz,Josh,Macy,Rachel Morgan etc.
So Okay,I picked up I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I Have To Kill You for a light read over this summer and I got way more than I was expecting for!
Cameron ‘Cammie’ Morgan isn’t your regular teenager.No,She and her bestfriends got to Gallagher Academy.The best School spy in this world. Cammie can break into CIA and FBI just to get extra credits, and speak into fourteen different languages!
Cammie’s life is all good until one day,when she goes on a mission, outside the Elite school and meets a ‘normal boy’ named Josh.
And that changes her world.
Cammie can’t tell Josh what she actually is and,in her life full of deception and lies,can she maintain a normal relationship with Josh without anyone knowing it?
The first book was.. cute no literally,it was cute.Ally fused teenage love,spy work,friendship together very well.There were some characters whom I just absolutely loved!
As whether Cammie and Josh work out,Its up to you to find it out!
Don’t miss it!
Warning:If you don’t like light reads,cute stories with a little less action. Uh Oh! Not a series for you!
If you love those sweet romances (which may or may not work out),Humour,and just teenage stuff,light reads.READ IT!
“I suppose a lot of teenage girls feel invisible sometimes, like they just disappear. Well, that’s me—Cammie the Chameleon. But I’m luckier than most because, at my school, that’s considered cool.
I go to a school for spies.”
Characters:Wanderer,Melanie Stryder,Ian O’She,Jared Howe,Jamie etc.
Well! I cannot express in words what a great this book is!
First of all Thank You Stephanie,for not giving us another Twilight series!

Rating:Absolutely 4 Soulful stars!
If you don’t like big books,possibility of an love triangle,alien invasion.Walk away!
if you like sweet romance,bit of violence and a one-time read.Go ahead!
Characters:Emerson Cole,Michael Weaver,Liam Ballard,Kaleb Ballard,Lily etc.
Emerson ‘Em’ Cole is a damaged teenager,her parents died in a car crash and she was caught arguing with…air.Pretty Crazy huh? Institutionalized and branded ‘freak’ by people.Emerson’s life is barely sunshine and kittens
First of all,her life is CRAZY.I would have been crazy,If I were her.I loved the strong character Em was,how she dealt with it,even though her life is broken.
Now living with her brother and his wife.Em is trying to get her life back,while hiding a very big secret,the one which got her committed. Many people tried helping Em ( who were all hoaxes ) but no one got it right.When Emerson gave up hope,Hope came is a gorgeous form of Michael Weaver
Its impossible not to love Michael the second you first read about him.He has the perfect look, mysterious aura and personality to charm a girl.He has secrets himself and is in all sense:Irresistible,but his intentions are only limited to using Emerson’s qualities to save a wrongly murdered man 6 months ago.
yes,this book has time travel!
but would his plan work accordingly?
Emerson has been Forbidden to have a relationship with Michael by her brother,but when Emerson agrees to work with Michael. Can she do it without having feelings for him?
The chemistry between the two rocked! I loved the way Em and Michael understood each other,and when there was jealousy…it was….wow! I have a soft spot for forbidden love and it was truly enjoyable romance.
Along with some major ass-kicking.
But saving someone by going back in time isn’t without consequences and Emerson will find it out in an hard way.Can she make the right decision- even if it means to give up the person she loves?
The time traveling part isn’t very big,but will have a significant impact on the story.Yes.It was a wee bit predictable but it was all good in end. I loved how the plot spun,one second, there was happiness and the other,there was sadness.
The villains and the betrayal was shocking and I cannot wait to know what happens after this!
Rating:This hell of a book deserves 5 stars!
Note:The second and the third book of this series is from different point of view, so those who like a continuous protagonist’s point of view,you might not find the other books in the series appealing.
WARNING: If you don’t like forbidden romance,Time-traveling,major cliffhangers.This series is not for you!
Those who like rocking romances,hot lead characters and a bit of humor.You will love this one!
“Aren’t I supposed to be brave, fearless? Isn’t that what the world expects?”
“Screw what the world expects. Think about all the things you’ve faced. You cracked, but you didn’t break. You’re still standing. I’d call that fearless. You’ve already conquered so much.”
Characters:Pierce Oliveira,John Hayden,Alex,Frank,Kayla etc.
The Furies are back for revenge,To hurt John and Pierce and to keep them apart…and this time, for ever,
Can Pierce Olievera stop it?
We were first introduced to Pierce by Meg Cabot as almost-Persephone, who was according to legends, Hades consort.
I love Greek Mythology, especially Hades and Persephone, It shows how a man, who is incapable of feelings, can show love.
Same as John Hayden.
Now, John Hayden is the lead and Pierce’s love interest.He is enigmatic,charming,protective with a shattered soul.He loves Pierce and would not stop at anything to keep them apart.
Death has her in her clutches,but Pierce does not want to let it go
Now,what can be better than Meg’s humor along with her talent to make sexy characters?
But before They can have any happy ending, Pierce has to take her final stand against the Furies…and the one possessing her grandmother.To ensure peace on Isla Huesos and The Underworld and her own happy ending
the Final installment is here
This book is what I call a perfect Hangover, It was sad to say goodbye to the characters who stayed with me so long…But at the end I was satisfied with how it turned out.It is one hell-of-a-series you should not miss!
Warning:If you don’t like Strong male leads,sweet funny reads, romance and mythology Unfortunately,this series is not for you
If you love turn-of-the-century romances,a good laugh and in general-beautiful stories then this series is begging you to read it!
Characters:Calaena Sardothien,Chaol Westfall,Prince Dorian,Princess Nehemia etc.
Calaena Sarthodien is back…with more mysteries to solve than ever.
There is something about Sarah’s writing…she can constantly keep you on edge, make you cry in one page and happy in the second.For those who are eagerly waiting to read it..I can promise you that you wont be disappointed At all!
18 year old assassin, Calaena Sarthodien is back as King’s Champion,She has to kill and abide by the rules set by the king, to remain as the Best Assassin, to ensure Nehemia, her family and Chaol to live, But when king’s evil plans unveil..What would Calaena do?
The story plot is immensely rich! All I can say is wow..
All I can give you is a glimpse of what you will discover:-
Evil mythical creatures, secret passages in the Castle ( more of them,atleast), a member from the Ironteeth Clan which destroyed the Witch kingdom,Magic..and a chilling riddle which will change everything
Celaena has to stop the rebellion which is threatening to overthrow the king,while at work,she meets An Old friend, and is introduced to the ever-mysterious world of Wyrd keys
But can she do what she has to do , without letting her heart astray?
And when the truth will uncover…It will change everything
Especially the ending…woah! It was so not what I expected! Loved it! Hats off to Sarah!
The Characters developed too, I personally loved Dorian’s development and Chaol’s maturity, which made him one of the most important characters.Calaena was just the badass self she already is, but at parts-I could not help myself from sympathizing for her, her strong nature is commendable.
But those who love Chaol and Calaena….this book will be a feast for you!
This book is action packed with mysteries and romance.Just wait people! The book is worth waiting!
Warning:If you don’t love extreme suspense, magic,and strong hot headed female leads and want a perfect love story *walk away*
If you adore magic,mystery,mayhem with beautiful romance but sad tragedies.You will love this one !
This is the cover of Another Edition
Characters: Calaena Sarthodien,Chaol Westfall,Dorian Havilliard,Nehemia,Queen Elena.
Celaena Sarthodien is an 18 year old assassin, The best Assassin of Adarlan
We all love heroes who save the day and usually also save the damsel-in-distress but, and a female strong lead? It something a lot better!
She was caught and taken captive in the Salt Mines of Endovier, where she suffered atrocities ordered by The king Of Adarlan, Calaena has almost not seen the sun for a year and is desperate for her freedom, When the opportunity is presented by Dorian Havilliard, The Crown Prince Of Adarlan, Calaena can’t miss the chance
Calaena has to fight for her freedom, for that ,she has become the prince’s champion and win the competition to serve the king as Royal Assassin for 4 years but along with her, other thieves, assassins and rouge warriors would fight to, too win the much coveted place.
At first, I thought that it will be some-what similar to The Hunger Games, but it was not, though it was as wonderful!
The story was a-w-e-s-o-m-e I loved LOVED the love triangle and Calaena’s sass,the way she treated others and the way she treated every situation presented to her and also, the way she deal the Arrogant-yet-hot Crown Prince and the Captain Of The Guards,Chaol Westfall.Also, there were no helpless female leads, who have to depend on the male lead to help her through *phew!*
“My name is Celaena Sardothien. But it makes no difference if my name’s Celaena or Lillian or Bitch, because I’d still beat you, no matter what you call me.”
Then, it is not only Assassins and competitions..yes! it has magic too! Although its banned in Adarlan, but its still there, along with wicked creatures of the otherworld ,Evil Kings, Ancient Queens with Agendas,scary creatures, mysterious symbols, this book has all!
I don’t like love triangles at all, but I love the triangle in Throne Of Glass. Its was great read and one should not miss this series!
Ratings: 5 stars!
If you don’t like traditional fantasy, Dystopian settings, Very strong heroin leads, magic, this book is not for you unfortunately

“You could rattle the stars,” she whispered. “You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”

So, My Fellow Readers, Harlequin Teen has signed the deal! but it is going to be released in 2015! *sad face*
But, Best Of Luck Julie! Iron Fey Series was a truly a enjoyable YA Series, I bet the new series will be as worthwhile!
from Julie Kagawa’s official website.
For the Iron Fey Series, Here is the link:
*It has Love Triangle ( you’d love it!)
I don’t think you will need a warning for this one 🙂
But still: Fae,Strong Heroins, Too Much Action, impossible love stories are something you don’t like then, well I would try to find something else for you.
If you love all the above mentioned factors..This will become one of your favorite series.
*Team Prince Ash!*
Oh yeah, it has Princes and cold kings and queens, the true faerie style!
The Final Book of the Red Death Series.
This is the second book, for the first book Masque Of the Red Death, Synopsis is here:
Characters:Araby Worth,Elliot,Will,April,Kent,Prince Prospero,Reverend Malcontent etc
I waited for a long time ( almost a whole month ) to read this book
And it turned out to be a HUGE disappointment.
Araby’s world is almost destroyed, Her Father is a murderer, her mother is a captive of Prince Prospero and her best-friend April has the contagion which she might not survive
Now this an interesting synopsis and after all Masque Of The Red Death was so awesome, why shouldn’t this book be too?
The Red Death is now ravaging the city, With Malcontent’s men spreading the contagion through the city and Prince Prospero is not at all interested in saving it, Its up to Elliot,Araby and Will to save the city.
The first book was at least better developed, You could get lost in it,Everything added up in Masque Of The Red Death but this one…*sighs*
Now guys, If you have Read Masque Of The Red Death then you know What happened at last with Araby, those who have not; lets just say that one of the two male heroes, did something rather…upsetting to Araby Worth ( the protagonist) But our dear Araby cannot seem NOT to trust him when, on the other hand,The other guy has helped her throughout, been there for her, gave her almost every reason for her to trust him, But Araby can’t trust him ! How wonderful!
The whole story was vague especially at the end Then, I could not understand anything, It seemed like more of a Diary entree, where the person can only understand what he/she wrote, what is going on and not the other nosy people.
I almost stopped reading it at several occasions but then kept reading because I thought that it would connect to me at one point, like Masque Of The Red Death did and also because I loved the chemistry between Araby and Elliot ( Remember the Crocodile scene? ) I kept waiting for a scene like that, I kept waiting for Araby to realize things which I did a lot earlier.
I could not connect to Araby AT ALL I found her irritating,selfish most of the time, Definitely not an Hero .
the Characters.. * shakes head*
Elliot? I LOVED HIM.He was just wonderful to read about, I would rather read Elliot’s point of view rather than Araby’s.
And Will? I don’t know where to start, The reasons I hate him are endless.
It was a HUGE disappointment and the ending, I felt was just stupid!
I don’t know, this is my view but I expected so much more from this one.
WARNING:If you don’t like love triangles, Fast paced books, Death and an unsual style of writing.Wrong book for you!
If you want adventures, unexpected endings, grim dystopia. There you go!
WARNING: THIS IS NOT A YA NOVEL.
Characters:Serena Cross,Hunter,Dex,Lore,Senator Vanderson,Mel
Serena Cross, witnesses her friend’s murder and now is sent to live under the protection of an Hot, arrogant alien..hmmm
I started this stand alone novel Adult Novel, because of Lux series and JLA ( because her writing is that awesome
AND I AM SO HAPPY THAT I DID!
Serena Cross is a 23 year old Independent woman, whose best-friend, Mel witnesses something unnatural happening to Senator’s Vandersons sons, She tries to tell that to Serena and also about some project Eagle, but Serena, like a natural human, dismisses it due to the total bizarreness of the situation Mel presented.
Cost? Serena watches Mel blow up in her car..That car which lighted up like an Christmas Tree!.
Serena tells the police this and is now shit-deep in the matters Department of Defense and Aliens.
Since Project Eagle is something DOD does not know and Serena’s information is vague, she is sent away for her safety till she remembers anything else, under the Care of Hunter.
Now, those of us who have read the Lux series before, know that the Arums are ultimately bad guys and Luxens are the heroes ( hello? Daemon Black! ) but, Obsession throws the light on a totally different situation, which makes us wonder who are the actual Good Guys out there.
And yes, Hunter is an Arum .
Hunter Is now this incredibly,sexy, arrogant alien who can’t believe that he has to take care of a human, and extract information from her because of DOD, but as an independent girl ,Serena is not that easy to crack.
Hunter and Serena’s chemistry…wow.I mean there was lust,there was hotness but there was also sweetness which was to die for and Hunter,the arrogant prick ,is seriously one of the hottest thing ever.
Only if I could lick him *sigh*
“You’re not going to answer me?” Or do I need to repeat myself for a third time? It’s okay. I like to hear myself talk.”
This is not sexy
Now DOD is back for Serena and the a powerful Luxen wants her dead,can Hunter save Serena and can hunter save himself from the human emotions?
Holy Hell this book is just…to awesome, and JLA’s writing still surprises me after Lux series and the sex scenes.. *fans herself*
“Hunter’s stomach was perfection—each taut muscle tight and totally lickable. Not that I’d ever licked a man’s stomach before, but now I got why someone would want to. I was in six-pack heaven.”
I wish there was one more in this series…but well.
Don’t miss this book!
Rating:4 and a half stars!
WARNING: If you don’t like sex, arrogant hot heroes and aliens then walk away!
If you love sexy love stories, full with action,mystery and well, Lux series I BEG YOU TO PICK THIS BOOK.NOW!
“Never in my life had I been more frustrated. Go figure it wouldn’t be with a human but a freaking alien. At least I now knew that the male species were asses no matter what planet they hailed from.”
