The re-read and Waiting On Wednesday

Have you ever had a book you felt like you could read over and over again?  For me that book is Anna and the French Kiss.  I just finished reading it again the other day.  I'm so over the top excited for Lola and The Boy Next Door.

What Lola is about:

Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn’t believe in fashion . . . she believes in costume. The more expressive the outfit -- more sparkly, more fun, more wild -- the better. But even though Lola’s style is outrageous, she’s a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood.

When Cricket -- a gifted inventor -- steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door

I just love feel good, happy books. What book are you most looking forward to? And which book could you read over and over again.

What its about:

Haven Moore and Iain Morrow have been living a blissful life in Rome, an ocean way from the Ouroboros Society and its diabolical leader. But paradise is not to last. The mysterious disappearance of Haven's best friend, Beau, sends the pair running back to New York, where they encounter the Horae, an underground group of women who have spent centuries scheming to destroy Adam Rosier. Only they can help Haven uncover the secret to Beau's whereabouts in one of her past lives. But their help comes at a price: Haven must infiltrate the Ouroboros Society, charm Adam Rosier, and lure him into a trap. It's a plan the Horae believe will save the world-but Haven and Iain fear that it may destroy the happiness they've been chasing for two thousand years.

What I thought:

This is the 2nd book in the eternal ones series.  I really enjoy the story line and the first half of this book was easier to read for me than the last half. The thing had the most difficult time with is the character development in this one. Haven can't seem to make a choice for the life of her.  She can't seem to decide who to trust or how things really happened even when it seems pretty obvious. Although you can't blame her for not trusting a guy who has kept bodies that once belonged to her locked away for years.  Not that he is who I was even hoping she'd trust.  It also drove me nuts that she was out partying and wasting time through out the entirety of the book.

 And Beau.... I'm pretty not happy with this character.  I really liked him in the first book but I think he took a fall from the stupid and bad choice tree. But at least he can make a choice I guess.

I still think the story is brilliant and if you liked the first one I wouldn't discourage you from reading the second book by any means.  But it has serious middle book syndrome.

Twilight Phenomenon

With the Breaking Dawn movie fast approaching I've been thinking a lot about rereading Twilight and just about the story in general.

When everyone started reading Twilight I wondered hmmm what is that about? When I heard it was about Vampires forever stuck in high school I thought, Um okay why? But I'm a sucker for reading. So I eventually gave in, just before the first movie came out. and I couldn't read them fast enough, or too many times.

I can't really explain what it is about these books.  Or about this story. It's like I feel like I should be living it.  I'm one of the crazies! How did I get there???

When Coke first came out it really had cocaine in it. With something like that you could easily become addicted. 

So I'm wondering is twilight like Coke? Did they lace the pages of Twilight with hallucinogens to make you feel like it was real?  Or maybe They sprayed on the Oxytocin hormone (you know the one associated with love). Whatever it is, it makes me want to run away with Edward (Don't worry I'd never leave the Hubs for reals) Or write a fabulous love story (Which never matches up) Or work on the movie set as anything they may possibly need. (Yes Mr. Pattinson I can get you coffee or paint your house or thread a movie for you.) But I'm totally addicted.

Do you feel this way too?

Its Friday!!! Hello all!  The Question this week is:

Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? And, why?

A:  This seems crazy hard for me for some reason. I don't know if I'd change any because I Love seeing where authors go with things. Sometimes I want to know more and miss certain characters.  For example I love the way Richelle Mead ended the Georgina Kincaid series but I will miss Carter a ton! I could read books just about him!

What its about:

Georgina Kincaid has had an eternity to figure out the opposite sex, but sometimes they still surprise her. Take Seth Mortensen. The man has risked his soul to become Georgina's boyfriend. Still, with Lucifer for a boss, Georgina can't just hang up her killer heels and settle down to domestic bliss. In fact, she's being forced to transfer Las Vegas.

The City of Sin is a dream gig for a succubus, but Georgina's allies are suspicious. Why are the powers-that-be so eager to get her away from Seattle—-and from Seth? Georgina is one of Hell's most valuable assets, but if there's any way out of the succubus business she plans to take it--no matter how much roadkill she leaves behind. She just hopes the casualties won’t include the one man she’s risking everything for...

What I thought:

..... *Stares at screen unsure what to say*.... I could not have imagined a more perfect end for Seth and Georgina.  I kind of knew the direction it was going in at the end of Succubus Shadows, but WOW.  This was the most perfect end to a series.  I'm so sad for this to end but so happy for the way it ended up.  It was intense from start to finish!

I adore Carter!  His role was amazing in this series and I think I will miss him the most.  Can we get a Carter spin off? :) I'm still so speechless,  I really want to live in this world and be friends with all of these people!

I know shortest review ever but I just want to pretend like I'm there a little longer.
