I didn't expect to love the story and this book. I promise it is really good and not like your other vampire stories.

I am a Kasie West fan, don't get me wrong but this book? Something you pick up, read and either bail or pick up, read and finish because you love the author.

Rating: 10/5 stars.

Nope. My rating scale is perfectly okay. It's just this book is way too good not to get 10 stars. I started reading around 7am and finish around 2pm. That's how sucked into the book and story I was.

marleed I loved this book. Months after reading the book sits on display in my front room because I just can‘t tuck it away on the wall-lined shelves in my reading room. It just stands alone. 4w
mikagatsby @marleed right? It's so good. I read it on Kindle and now I plan to buy the actual book. 4w

This was ridiculously wicked, snarky and funny. And I enjoyed this book. I would be very angry if I do not see the sequel of this movie. Lol. But yes, grab the book and indulge.

First of all, the photo isn't mine. Took it from pinterest. Second of all, Colleen Hoover has never failed to make me ugly cry. Third, why are you still here? Go grab this book, read it and ugly cry.

What is more enticing and seductive than mythology and this kind of story-telling? Let me tell you: nothing. So pick up the book and read.

Of course I picked this up and devoured it in one night. This was the World Cup I didn't ask for (my team got knocked out) but this was the World Cup that made me fall in love with Belgium and the World Cup that Toni Kroos showed why he is king (I'm his queen!).

George RR Martin is one of a kind. This book is extensive and really, really good. I'm of House Stark and Martell, but I do have a favorite Targaryen: Visenya.

Come on, who doesn't love mythology? Because I love reading about them and have been fascinated about them ever since I could remember. And yes, I reread from time to time. It also happens to be my bedside book.

The rating has to overshoot from 5 to 10 because Deborah Harkness is a genius and I am in love with the book, story, characters and all. I also happen to like Baldwin.

Expect me to reread this series just because I can.

This is the most twisted story I have ever read. But in its own twisted way -- I love it. Although, I won't pick it up and reread again. I think I had enough of twisted. I won an ebook copy from the author herself.

Rating: 5/5 stars.

Paul Scholes. What. A. Legend. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a Manchester United fan. I was born for that club. Paul Scholes is one of my football heroes and I have scoured bookstores to get this one. I had to wait a year to score this, but, let me just say that the worth was worth it. Paul is not only one of the best players, he is an amazing person and a master storyteller (considering how humble he is!). Just wow.
