Angels’ Blood (Guilt Hunter) by Nalini Singh



“Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux is hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael. But this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.

The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other—and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn’t destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break.”



OH! MY! GOD! I thought that Archangel’s Blade was amazing, this was just WOWOWOWOWOWOW! No lie, this book was 339 pages long and I read it in less than a day. And 339 pages of small print and PURE AWESOMENESS! I am totally fangirling about this book right now. Book 2 has already been ordered from my library, as well as book 3.

I mean I love stories about Angel’s, but a lot of stories have the angels being teenagers and stuff, this was not like that at all. The Archangel in this, Raphael (I don’t think it was like the real Archangel Raphael from the Bible), was tall, dark hair, muscly with gold and white wings and totally amazing. And then there was Elena, the main female character.

I really loved Elena because she was such a  strong character. The women in the two novels by Nalini Singh that I have read, were such strong characters and I really love them. Instead of the woman pining after the man, that man has to do everything he can to get the girl. And the women in these novels are *says dramatically* kick ass! In this novel she was a Vampire Hunter, and in the other novel the female character was just a regular type of Hunter. I love it!

The best part is, is that there is such a story to it as well. It is definitely not just about romance at all! There is a deep story behind it as well.

This book is definitely for mature readers. There wasn’t a whole lot of sex in it (not much at all surprisingly) but there was quite a lot of graphic violence including bodies and blood, but it went with what the story was about.

I am totally in love with this series and cannot wait for the next book to arrive for me to read…….ugh, it’s going to kill me. I really suggest checking this book out and letting me know if you love it as much as I do! Now excuse me while I go and scream into my pillow as I am so EXCITED!

*Turns her head and screams as loudly as she can into her pillow*

Until next time my lovelies. Keep reading and keep literature alive!

Sleepy Hollow Season 1



Tom Mison – Ichabod Crane
Nicole Behaire – Lt. Abbie Mills
Orlando Jones – Captain Frank Irving
Katia Winter – Katrina Crane


When Ichabod Crane wakes up in a different time period, confused would be an understatement. Thankfully he came across Lieutenant Abbie Mills who had just experienced one of her own supernatural events. Her past, her childhood memories and fears are brought to the surface and things don’t seem like what they are. The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse will rise and with their arrival, the world will end. But there are those who can stop the Apocalypse, Moloch, and the creatures that Moloch sends to cause fear and destruction. But will the clues that be dropped be solved? And what about the two prophecies?


I haven’t really been a big fan of Fox recently, with the only show that I was interested in being Bones, but then they came out with Sleepy Hollow and my mind was officially blown. For a TV show it is incredibly well done. The story line is also amazing as well. There is a new demon or creature almost every episode and sometimes they are pretty freaky.

This TV show is definitely for a more mature audience (that’s why it’s rated TV-14) as there is quite a lot of violence with the demons and such. The show kept me interested and the plot twisted and turned the ENTIRE time. You never knew what was going to happen right up until the last 5 minutes of the season finale. MIND! BLOWN!

The season finale, which was 2 hours, was amazing and so many things happened and it really reminded me of an American Horror Story episode or something like that that. It was pretty freaky but it was amazingly well done. I can’t say more than that in fear of revealing something. O.O

The settings in the TV show were quite amazing as well. There is a lot of flashbacks to Cranes previous life during the American Revolution. In addition to that I love how they mix history into this story making General Washington some type of zombie or something like that ( can’t explain it in full details in fear of disclosing some information).

I have never really been a fan of these types of TV shows before. I usually stick to the Crime TV shows (Hawaii Five-O, Criminal Minds) but this one was an exception. It was amazing. The filming is really well done and the characters are great as well. There is character development which doesn’t really happen in many of these big budget TV shows.

Honestly I cannot give anything away about the story as if I do I’ll spoil some episode or something so I can only say this, you need to check this out. If you like the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, then this will put a nice twist to it. Most of the episodes can be seen on or you can wait a few months for the season to come out on DVD. But let me know what you think because I personally love this series and will be counting down the days until the return of season 2.

How much longer do I have to wait until the fall? :/

Interview with Allen Zadoff


So I have something totally exciting; an interview with the amazing author, Allen Zadoff, author of Boy Nobody
which was a totally awesome book and one that you should check out.

I would first like to thank Mr. Zadoff for doing this interview. I really appreciate it and his answers are really fun and cool!

So without further adieu, here is the interview :D (that rhymes, haha)

1.  Why did you start writing in the first place? Was it your first choice or was there something else that you wanted to do instead?

My first love was the theater. I was an actor in high school, a director in college, and I even went to graduate school as a stage director. But you never know where life (and your talent) are going to take you. It wasn’t until my twenties that I started writing seriously, and my career as a novelist is still something of a surprise to me.

2.   Where did you come up with the idea for your book?

Like many of my ideas, it came to me first in the voice of the character. He told me he was a teen assassin who traveled from place to place carrying out missions. He said he had no home and worked for a shadowy organization called The Program. I knew he was lonely. I knew he was dangerous. And I knew his name: Boy Nobody.

3. Are there any real life events which inspired the making of this book? If not, how long did it take you come up with this idea?

I always pull from real life, but I’d say my books have emotional truth more than actual truth.  For example, I’ve never been an assassin for the government. But I know what it’s like to struggle with loyalty to the family vs. my own desire to be independent. That’s something Boy Nobody is going through in the novel. .

4.   Why did you choose to make the protagonist a teenager?

Boy Nobody chose, not me.

5.  This book was completely a different writing style. Less speech and more personal thoughts and feelings which was quite an interesting turn. Why did you write the book like this, and how do you think, in your opinion, it enhanced the book?

The book is written from Boy Nobody’s point of view, so we are literally in the mind of a soldier assassin. He thinks in a very simple and direct way. The sentences are short. I think this makes the pace super fast and very exciting.  You can read ten chapters in fifteen minutes! Some people ask me if I did that so it would be an easy book for young people to read. That’s a side benefit, but it’s not the reason I did it. I was just trying to write the way the character thinks.

6.    What are some things that you have to do when writing (ie: Having a lighted candle, chewing some mints)?

I listen to music almost all the time when I’m writing. It’s a huge inspiration for me.  My favorite app is Pandora, but I’ve been getting into iRadio since Apple’s new IOS 7 came out. Boy Nobody uses an iPhone, too, so I think he would approve.

7.   During your average day, what can you be found doing?

Writing, watching tv, walking, having a meal or coffee with friends. Writing is a lonely business, so anything I can do to balance it out is helpful to me.

10.What can you be found currently watching on the TV?

I watch a lot of television. I think there is amazing writing on TV these days.  I learn a lot from it.  Currently I’m watching shows like Walking Dead, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire, and Breaking Bad until it ended this year!  I also have some guilty pleasures like Project Runway, Chopped, and X Factor.

11.What is the weirdest food that you have ever eaten?

Crickets which are called chapulines in Spanish. There’s a big Oaxacan community in Los Angeles where I live, and it’s not hard to find chapulines. They’re usually fried or sun-dried and covered with salt, lime, and chili pepper. They’re delicious, but it helps if you close your eyes before you bite down.

Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff


“He is nothing. The mission is everything.”


“They needed the perfect assassin.

Boy Nobody is the perennial new kid in school, the one few notice and nobody thinks much about. He shows up in a new high school in a new town under a new name, makes a few friends, and doesn’t stay long. Just long enough for someone in his new friend’s family to die-of “natural causes.” Mission accomplished, Boy Nobody disappears, moving on to the next target.

But when he’s assigned to the mayor of New York City, things change. The daughter is unlike anyone he has encountered before; the mayor reminds him of his father. And when memories and questions surface, his handlers at The Program are watching. Because somewhere deep inside, Boy Nobody is somebody: the kid he once was; the teen who wants normal things, like a real home and parents; a young man who wants out. And who just might want those things badly enough to sabotage The Program’s mission.

In this action-packed series debut, author Allen Zadoff pens a page-turning thriller that is as thought-provoking as it is gripping, introducing an utterly original and unforgettable antihero.”



I will start off by saying that this book was quite unlike any other book that I have read. It was written differently, there were more flashbacks, and it just, overall, had a completely different feel. Now this is not necessarily a bad thing, because I feel that for this book, it worked quite well and fit in with the overall theme.

It was quite a fast paced book, even though the majority of the book only spanned over about 5 days. In those five days a lot happened…..betrayal, mysteries, rebellion, death! It definitely kept you on your toes until the very last page. The entire time you thought it was one thing, but by the time you got to the last page…you were like ‘whatttttt’.

And then after the book, you were left sitting there thinking how quickly everything escalated.

There was very little dialogue in this book which is completely different from most books. If I remember correctly, this entire book was in first person point of view, but it was mostly feeling, thoughts, and things that the main character saw. Since this was a kind of secret espionage, soldier, mysterious thing-y (yes, I used that word) book, it really did add to it.

The only thing which I found a little confusing was when there was a flashback. There was nothing to really indicate that it was a flash back; no font changes or little things in the beginning to say what year it was or where it was. If you pay attention you will get it, but if you skim chapter, then you will be lost. SO DON’T DO IT! (you probably shouldn’t be anyway)

This is a hot off the press, as it only came out in June of this year, so if you look for it, it will probably be on your new YA shelf.

You should definitely go and check this book out as it was really an extremely well written book!

If you love stuff to do with government’s (or mysterious Programs) and where the main character is a young teenager (in this case, a young boy (about 16 I believe)), then this is definitely your type book. Also it is a quick read so with all of the school work, you will still be able to finish it in a few days.

So go and check this one out and let me know what you think.

Hawkeye, Vol 1: My Life as a Weapon


by: Matt Fraction (Author), David Aja (Illustrator), Javier Pulido (Illustrator)


I love Hawkeye. He is one of the coolest Marvel characters in my opinion because he is just a normal guy. He and Black Widow are just amazingly awesome. And Hawkeye was played by one of my favorite actors, Jeremy Renner. (fangirl over here)

How can you not love him?!

So when my librarian had this on his recommended reading list, there was no way that I could say no.

This was all about what Hawkeye does in his spare time, when he is not being an Avenger.

Unfortunately it was a short comic and I was hoping for more, but apparently this is just the first one. As far as I know Volume 2 is not out yet because this one only just came out in March of this year.

The drawing were very simple but it added to the effect and there were not many different colors so it wasn’t vivid like other Marvel comics.

It also had interesting pictures between the different ‘chapters’. They usually represented the chapters in some way and they were usually pretty cool.

It was kind of a depressing comic because Hawkeye’s life is kind of sad when he is not being an Avenger since he is such a normal guy and has to live a normal life to fit in. But it was nice to see his life.

I would recommend you reading this if you like Marvel comics as it is interesting. But if you like Hawkeye, like me (well I actually LOVE him), this is really lovely to read as well and I am telling you to read it because it is AMAZING.

Let me know what you think. :)

Tron Soundtrack


The soundtrack from the new Tron movie is personally one of my favorite albums out there. All of the music was done by Daft Punk who is currently a huge artist which adds to my love of it.

Unlike music that is done today, most of the instruments in the soundtrack were actually recorded live with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. There of course were the synthed sounds but the majority of the instruments were done with live instruments which is extremely rare nowadays.

The music overall has this epic type of quality to it.

Take the track, ‘Rinzler’. It just has the music slowly building up and it is just amazing!

Then you have the fun tracks like ‘Derezzed’ which I absolutely love.

(I apologize about the quality of the music from the YouTube videos, but it is the best you can get)

I personally have an obsession with this album because you can use it as music to just listen to while you are doing a boring job, and before you know it you are through the hour-long album and you are so far along with your task.It is also really useful for making trailers or videos as background music because it can be used in so many different situations.

I definitely recommend listening to it if you enjoy electronic music or are just interested in cool music, because this was definitely a cool album.
