Review: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

Rose Hathaway has always played by her own rules. 

She broke the law when she ran away from St. Vladimir’s Academy with her best friend and last surviving Dragomir Princess, Lissa. She broke the law when she fell in love with her gorgeous, off-limits instructor, Dimitri. And she dared to defy Queen Tatiana, leader of the Moroi world, risking her life and reputation to protect generations of dhampir guardian to come. 

Now the law has finally caught up with Rose- for a crime she didn’t even commit. She’s in prison for the highest offense imaginable: the assassination of a monarch. She’ll need help from both Dimitri and Adrian to find the one living person who can stall her execution and force the Moroi elite to acknowledge a shocking new candidate for the royal throne: Vasilisa Dragomir. 

But the clock on Rose’s life is running out. Rose knows in her heart the world of the dead wants her back… and this time she is truly out of second chances. The big question is, when your life is about saving others, who will save you?

My Take:
This series for me was a roller coaster and it took me awhile to actually finish the series. After finding the first one intriguing, the series took me by storm changing my mood with everything that happened. I was sad, happy, excited, and also found myself laughing while others were wondering why, I was thinking where the book was taking me. In this one particular Rose is on a journey and searching for the key that helps everyone in the long run even herself. Mead was finally able to end on Rose's part in good fashion that would lead all readers and fans wanting more and realizing the end is just the beginning for the new series out this summer. I was able though to know who exactly is in the new series because I meet up with Mead at an event if you want to know who it is just comment you might be surprised who it is.

I still love Adrian even thought Dimitri captured my heart in this one I still fell that pull to my dreamwalker.

5/5 Stars

Midnight Release Experience of a Lifetime

Last night was so crazy loved went over to Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore last night (almost passed out) and I was just so excited I loved just being there and meeting authors who just stopped by.
Holly Black, Elca Cloak and Cassie Claire

The party was for Cassandra Clare who writes The Mortal Instruments series and Holly Black who writes White Cat. Meeting them both felt like a dream I've been to so many author events but never one where I actually laughed throughout the whole event (lots of SC jokes) it just made being there so special in a way.
Me fangirling and crying in  presence  Kami Garcia

  Of course since I've gone to so many events I've seen lots of authors crash the party to get there stuff signed too. No joke meeting Kami Garcia again made my night even better Kami is awesome and even while I was crying she took a picture with me.

Sarah Reese Brennan and Kami Garcia 

  Also there were authors which I almost screamed the names out loud. Sarah Reese Brennan, Keirsten White and also Cindy Pon. These lovely pictures were taken by my good friends Darla Greer and Janelle Alexander.

Kiersten White Sarah Reese Brennan and Cindy Pon

I still can't believe the night I had last night it was a blast being there with friends and getting to spend just a couple of hours with the women who made reading enjoyable again. The way home was also fun as hell because we all talked about the event and repeated everything we saw. Those SC jokes were awesome except Janelle, Darla and Sandy all say I should never talk after midnight because I tend to say whatever pops in my mind.

Of course I am up to something like this again can't wait to see what event is next on the agenda.

Review: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

What if you knew exactly when you would die?

Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left.
My Take:

From the moment I started this book to the moment I finished it I didn't expect anything, while reading I usually guess at whats to happen not this time, because while reading I couldn't guess any of the plot it would change on me and sometimes I was in the background encouraging Rhine to keep going.This was an amazing 1st book to the trilogy so looking forward to number 2 and of course trying to figure out the ending to number 3 on the way. I also experienced what life must have to be in her shoes and so I became and Rhine and I had to choose at least this world doesn't exist or else I would already be dead I'm 21 so dying at 20 well I wouldn't be able to have experienced this wonderful book. I loved every aspect of the story and can't wait to recommend it to everyone I see, this one story changed my aspect on what can be a possible future and I am willing to bet it can change everyone opinion about their own possible future I am counting down the days until there is another book to the series to find out if Rhine has a future.

Just to make it perfectly clear I'm Team Gabriel.
