Book 58: Broken

21 Jul

brokenBroken (Women of the Otherworld # 6) by Kelley Armstrong

 

In the sixth installment we jump back to Elena and Clay. And She’s preggers!! So cute. One of the things I love about this world, is all the cross appearances of characters. Here we get Jaime, coming to help with her necro powers, and to you know oogle Jeremy. And some introductions to Zoe, haha her hitting, repeatedly, on pregnant Elena priceless. The story was interesting, but as always the girls gotta save the day. Whoop go Jaime, controlling the bad zombies, and Elena being well Elena.

Otherworld Mania!

19 Jul

Fluffies,

Okay this is my kick off post for my Kelley Armstrong reading madness. I wanted to read all the other Armstrong novels before I became too busy/engrossed/dying from heat. I thought well I’ve already read 5/ 13 books it shouldn’t be too hard to finish, but then I discovered she wrote a bunch of novellas. If you check out this link it has all the stories in the Otherworld Universe, and I made a nice little document to check what I’ve read (a measely 5/51!) Unfortunately I’m under limited funds, so I could only grab her printed works from the holy library.

Book 48: Haunted

10 Jun

hauntedHaunted by Kelley Armstrong

 

I was unsure how I would like reading this “afterlife” love story, but it did not have any real differences between the real world and the afterlife. Eve was a superhero kind of gal, one whom I really liked. I found her dedication(borderline obsession) to her daughter her great characteristic. Although we did not get to see her “dark/evil side” so maybe that’s why I liked her so much. Kriss’s love was so sweet, and the stories of his fatherly side. Awwwww. It was very cute when they declared their feelings for each other. On the action side of things, the Nix was a very very good enemy. But she’s no match for Eve. Although Eve did have to ascend and become an angel to defeat her. But she does get a bad-ass sword. So the deal is still kind of good. At least she was able to release her obsession on all things Savannah, but it was sad when she realized that Lucas and Paige don’t trust her, but hey you can’t have everything.

Book 46: The Rising

1 Jun

therisingThe Rising (Darkness Rising #3) by Kelley Armstrong

 

Here I was waiting patiently for the conclusion of the trilogy and after reading it I just felt meh. Which probably has to do with the Daniel/Maya ending. I just loved Rafe so much. But I can see that the kids made the right decision by making a deal with the Cabal, and it is basically learning super soldier training that you can later use to escape. What I loved about this book was the A) mentions of Women of the Otherworld characters (Savannah in the house whoop) and B) when they joined up with the Genesis kids! I definitely preferred that trilogy/cast of characters. Man what does it say about me, when my favorite character(Chloe) is only in less than 50 pages of the 400. She just has the best lines!

Waitlisting at the Library

13 Apr

Fluffies,

I love the Library.  Free books to read, comfy chairs, open for hours upon hours = golden.  Another function that I totally love is the “hold” option on books. It’s basically a waitlist, but it guarantees that you can read the book at some point.  Anyways just wanted to show some appreciation for it, and share with ya’ll some of the books I’m on hold for.  waitlistingpng

Book 20: Dime Store Magic

4 Feb

Dime_Store_MagicDime Store Magic (Women of the Otherworld #3) By Kelley Armstrong

I loved loved loved it. We step out of the wolf world into the world of spells and magic. Paige is certainly a change from the force of nature Elena, but is strong in her own cutesy way. Paige and Savannah’s mother-daughter-sister relationship was beautifully written. Savannah’s teeny-bopper attitude paired with her powerful magic, makes her a force to be reckon with, she definitely is not making motherhood easy for the twenty-three year old witch. Lucas Cortez, sorcerer lawyer, riding to save the day, a knight not on a white steed but wicked cool motorcycle. I find their sorcerer/witch dynamic very interesting, and it makes for a good love story. Their ability to recognize each other kinda seems like a mating instinct, roaring “him him, with him you can make super magical babies,” well except for the whole we hate each others’ race thang. I hope that Paige can create another coven, and am interested how the Cortez Cabal will figure into the future of Lucas and Paige. Can their be any mix to the Cabal and Coven hierarchy. We shall see. I am very excited to read the next book, Industrial Magic.

Book 14: Bitten

14 Jan

bitten.kelleyarmstrongBitten by Kelley Armstrong

 

Werewolves. Awoooooooooooo. Man I wish I was as cool as Elena. She can kick-ass. And she knows it. This is the first of the Women of Otherworld Series, and if this is any indication of the rest of the novels, I can already see myself loving them. I’ve read a fair share of werewolf stories, but this had to be the first where the Alpha of the pack was not the love interest. I appreciate Armstrong’s presentation of the pack, the way she portrayed their interactions was one of my favorite aspects about the book. The fighting, the love, the loyalty, and trust. Ahh family. But alas, to the hopeless romantic in me, family does not hold a candle to lurve.  But what I wouldn’t give to have my very own Clayton, waiting for me. * sigh* This book has enough action, adventure, and romance to get my stamp of approval, and has piqued my interest into reading the sequels.
