The Black Dagger Brotherhood: Lover Awakened and Quotes


< ★★★★★ >
Rating: 5/5

Read the about the rest of The Black Dagger Brotherhood series HERE .


From Dark Lover, Zsadist already caught my attention. He was described as the scarred-faced, soulles brother who you should run away from or else  will tear you apart. I was intruiged. So my curiosity in unravelling the secrets behind Zsadist scarred face and his pain drove me into buying this book the same day i finished Lover Eternal.

Zsadist story was just heartbreaking. I mean the whole story was just. He was a slave in the past, and those memories keeps haunting him. It always comes back to him. He built this wall  sorrounding him, avoiding the warmth of other people. Showing only anger and his fascination in killing.
Bella was attracted to Zsadist from the very first time she met him. But Zsadist treated her coldly and tried to scare her away.

When Bella was kidnapped, Zsadist was the most restless.  In the story, it showed how  he cleaned up her house after she was taken, and went through her things, thinking about her. When they finally found her, he took care of her. He showed his soft side he never showed  to anyone. I was touched, like i wanted to cry when he sang to her when she was in pain. This soulles, scary, fearless warrior humming, singing to ease her pain.
He's obviously inlove with her. Willing to do everything for her.But his past was getting in the way. Loathing his own skin, he feels dirty, unworthy of her. Him driving her away.

I was totally satisfied with Lover Awakened. I fell in love with Zsadist. His heartbreaks and struggles to make things right, away from Bella. And i loved the ending. I didn't feel it was rushed. It took a while for Zsadist to accept himself. I felt  myself smile when he brought the piece of paper to Bella. At the same time, you will also be filled with the side stories(except for the lessers, i find myself just scanning the story) I would totally recommend this book!

Lords of the Underworld: The Darkest Kiss and Quotes

< ★★★★ >
Rating: 4/5

Read about the Lords of the Underworld series

Darkest Kiss is the second book of Lords of the Underworld.
Lucien, the keeper of demon of Death has always been the calmest amongst the Lords. He is the most responsible one that's why the rest of the Lords respects him.
Then he met Anya, the minor goddess of Anarchy. A naughty and sometimes stubborn goddess who turned Lucy's world upside down. Just imagine a very disciplined warrior meeting a very playful and sometimes childish goddess. Chaos! but that makes this story enjoyable. As what they say, sometimes opposite attracts!
Anya ruled this story! I find myself laughing at her lines, the way she teases Lucien. She sees the real Lucien behind the scars on his face. Besides  Lucien and Anya's story, it will also fill you up with the other Lords especially Paris.
Romance, actions and humor kept me reading this book till the end.

hahaha!shutting Lucy up!

She was so childish here! lol!

Naughty, naughty Anya!

Naughty Strider!

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books. This is a great way for bloggers and readers to discover other book blogs. A great way to connect bloggers and readers with the same passion: reading!

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is much more than just a “follow for a follow”. It’s about making connections. There are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of book bloggers around the world. It can seem like we are blogging in a bubble, always checking out the same blogs over and over again. The Hop is about taking the time to make a quality visit to another blog, getting to know the person who is writing, and seeing if you really *want* to follow that person! I am not a big fan of blindly following other blogs just to increase your follower numbers, because who is to say that the people will come back? Just because they are “following” you doesn’t mean they’re reading your blog. How many times have you “dumped” the messages in your Google Reader account due to the daunting number of messages there are, many from blogs you “had” to follow (in order to participate in a hop, giveaway, etc). I’d much rather have a lower “follower” count and know that these people are following me because they WANT to follow me, not because they HAVE to. I like the knowledge that I’m connecting with people on more than just a “have to” level.

“In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite “banned or frequently challenged book”?”

For me it's the Vampire Diaries series. I was shock to see this book even included. I love Vampire Academy. It's one of the reasons why i became addicted to reading in the first place. I've read the whole series and hated that it ended. But good thing there's a spin-off. Even the HUnger Games? This is a great dystopian novel, a page-turner until the end.

Banning certain book stirs up curiousity. Questions such WHo and Why will arise. And the more the reason readers will want to read the books to find out why. We have all different views and reactions. We all have our own judgement. It may be bad for you but that doesn't mean it's bad for everyone. So why censor it?
