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.
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!!!
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.
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.
Book One of Apocalypse Babes, The Z Word, follows Seffy Carter and her longtime friends Gareth, Addison and Lani. The four besties share a past dysfunctional and dark enough to keep them bound together under do-over identities. But rends develop in their relationships from the flesh-eating pressures of ending up in 1980, in a Montana desert, surrounded by zombies wearing dated disco duds.

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!
