A Shade of Vampire - Best NEW Series of 2013!

This year, I was introduced to a new book series, A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forrest.

Book 1, A Shade of Vampire
It's Sofia's birthday and all she wants is attention from her bestie Ben, who she also has a major crush on. But he's giving some other chick all of his attention, so Sofia goes off on her own for a stroll on the beach. She meets a handsome stranger (Lucas) that turns out to be a vampire who kidnaps her as a gift to his brother Derek, ruler of The Shade. She isn't the only girl that gets kidnapped for Derek, but she is the one that is special...

Book 1 is short (150 pages), but the rest of the books are fuller.
I LOVE THESE BOOKS!
Best series of 2013

The way I found out about the series was because the Author, Bella Forrest, contacted me and asked if I would read and review the first book. I did and became instantly hooked. There are 6 books in all. Only 5 are out currently. The last book, #6 will be titled An End of Night...can't wait for that one.

Gets to reading, you'll love em'.

Holiday Spirit!

I have seriously been slacking on posting anything lately (too busy). But, that's the great thing about having your own blog--You can write as much or as little as you like!

SOOOOOO...many of you have seen those ZIPPER FACE pics floating around, right? Found the kit at Target and that is what I did for Halloween :) Bloody scary.

At first, I was afraid I might scare kids, but they were like, "WHOA, that's what I'm talking about!"

 
Now, I'm just waiting for that WINTER BREAK!!!

Review: Kiss Me, I'm Yours by Bella Street

 I LOVE ALL OF BELLA STREET'S BOOKS FOR A REASON!
They are just so freaking good...
 

Bella Street KNOWS how to write books!!! Every word captures all my attention. In Book 1: Kiss Me, I'm Irish, Emily time traveled to the future to escape being sent to a convent. In Book 2, Kiss Me, I'm Yours, Sophie time travels to the past to get away from the reality of her sucky cheating boyfriend. Both stories are the "can't put down" love, action, drama, fantasy type that every girl wants to read. So freaking GOOD! Attacked as soon as she has been transported by what she thinks to be Civil War re-enactors, then rescued and taken in, cared for by the town outcast, Sophie has to come to the realization that she is in fact in another time...1865, crazy. I was just living the story, feeling all the emotions right along with Sophie and all the pain for Gabriel. Rooting for them to be together the whole time, sad when she kept wanting to get back home, not realizing all along she belonged with him. The answer to her prayers was right in front of her. But, it has got to be tough, without the modern conveniences...like deodorant, AC, toothpaste, clothes that feel comfy. I can't wait to read Book 3: Kiss Me, I'm Home, and see what adventure is next. Let's find LIAM!!!

Kiss Me, I'm Yours by Bella Street NOW AVAILABLE!!!

is FINALLY AVAILABLE!!! 
 
When jilted Sophie Bowen stumbles into a stone circle filled with fireflies, she wakes up in a very different place—and time.
Beaten down by Lincoln's War and personal tragedy, Gabriel Merritt feels his life has become a lost cause.
In a post-war South still licking its wounds, Sophie and Gabriel struggle to understand the place they each find themselves in, while fighting a war of attraction.
And a mysterious twelve-year-old girl just might hold the key to it all.
Buy HERE
 
 Haven't read Book 1 yet? GET ON IT ASAP!!!
Time travel, Fairies, Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance...
 
Emily Musgrave is heading a direction she never wanted to go in Regency England--namely a convent to turn her from her waywardness. But it's more loneliness than rebellion that motivates her to escape her certain fate. Liam Jackson is going nowhere fast in modern-day Tennessee. Playing his Dobro in seedy bars and backward dives along with his fiddling sister, Tinker, is doing nothing for his music career--and even less for the dark places in his soul. Pixie mischief can not only change time-lines, it can change hearts. Because sometimes a girl just needs a little magic in her life.

Obsession Cover Reveal - Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsession will release on 5/31/2013 with Entangled's Covet line!
 
 
OBSESSION official Blurb:

He’s arrogant, domineering, and… To. Die. For.

Hunter is a ruthless killer. And the Department of Defense has him firmly in their grasp, which usually doesn’t chafe too badly because he gets to kill bad guys. Most of the time he enjoys his job. That is, until he’s saddled with something he’s never had to do before: protect a human from his mortal enemy.

Serena Cross didn’t believe her best friend when she claimed to have seen the son of a powerful senator turn into something…unnatural. Who would? But then she witnesses her friend’s murder at the hands of what can only be an alien, thrusting her into a world that will kill to protect their secret.

Hunter stirs Serena’s temper and her lust despite their differences. Soon he’s doing the unthinkable—breaking the rules he’s lived by, going against the government to keep Serena safe. But are the aliens and the government the biggest threats to Serena’s life…or is it Hunter?

Girl burns her hair off and lands on Ellen!

I'm sure by now most of you have seen this video making its way around Facebook.
Apparently, after only a few days, she got several million views.
She's very brave for posting a video of herself failing so bad.

 
Girl, why'd you hold that thing there for so LONG???
...must have been on the highest setting



The video was so SPECTACULAR that Ellen felt she HAD to invite her to the show.
Watch as Tori (13 yrs old) explains the whole situation--didn't know she was THAT young!
 
 

Tori, YOU'RE AWESOME
You said you cried after, but the fact that you can laugh at yourself now
means you have a sense of humor and you are one cool chick!

The Last Exorcism Part II



 
I loved The Last Exorcism and I'll definitely be watching Part II.
 
Nell is so freaking creepy in every way.  The big difference is Part I was done as a "found footage" type movie and Part II is not.  The movie continues where Part I left off.  Nell is found in the woods and can't remember much, other than her being the only surviving member of her family. 
 
 
I know I am 100% excited to see how this one turns out.
I wonder if Nell will end up in the FiRE again...
 
 
The Last Exorcism II releases this Friday, March 1st!
