Silver Shadows

Standard

8709524

This is the sixth book in the Bloodlines series which is a spin off series of the Vampire Academy series also by Richelle Mead. So far I’ve really like this series but there was just something about this one that didn’t do it for me. The end of the book got better so I hope this means the next one is better.

Oh Adrian..you are without a doubt my favorite person in this series, your wit, your sarcasm, your romantic inclinations…you are amazing. He is such a dreamboat. He is also so damn loyal to Sydney and would do anything for her that it makes me swoon.

Now Sydney in this book wasn’t my favorite…at time I would just go really? Did she seriously just do that? She made me just a wee bit angry.

The story line in this book was average but there were more parts than I wanted that I feel didn’t necessarily have to be added and there were many parts that were just plain dull.

I would definitely suggest going and reading the rest of the series and I hope that the next one gets better.

Ugly Love

Ugly Love Goodreads Description:

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

This book just blew me away as all of Colleen Hoover’s book usually do, but this one really just hit me hard. She is one of those writers that makes you feel what she is writing and it is always an amazing experience. The way she writes the characters also makes them feel so realistic and connected to them it’s just so impressive.

The two main characters in this book are Tate and Miles. Tate is a a nurse and Miles is a pilot, they pretty much instantly connect but neither of them are really wanting or in a place to start a relationship so of course they think the best way to deal with this is to become friends with benefits. You know right away that this is going to be a horrible idea and almost always ends badly.

When we first meet Miles you immediately realize there is something that haunts him and this definitely plays into why he doesn’t want a relationship. Miles though is a nice guy and he can be sweet and protective and he’s just all around good. Tate is a nurse and you know that she and Miles would make a beautiful and basically perfect couple if they could get around their problems.

So the story line of this book was just so incredible and there was just so much emotion and just never a part that made you want to go take a nap. I really could not put this book down and finished it right when it came out on my Nook. I might have had something early going on the next day but I finished this and I do not regret it one bit. I am going to go reread this book tonight because review it is making me want to relive it.

This book is just so amazing as are all Colleen Hoover books and now I want to go buy the rest of her books I don’t have, which is a lot, and read them all. I suggest you do the same.

Opposition

This is the last book in the Lux series and when I finished reading it I went into a Daemon depression for a while…I’m really going to miss him. When I was reading this a whole fourth of the book was a short story and I didn’t realize that until the cook felt like it was ending and it did….it was probably the most horrific thing I have ever experienced. It wasn’t a fun feeling.

So of course we have our same characters Daemon who is still one sarcastic and romantic and sweet sexy beast. He is easily my favorite person in this book series. He is pretty much all the things you want in a guy wrapped in one…it’s beautiful.

I also really liked Kat. She didn’t back down in a challenge and was tough enough to handle things and didn’t have the whiny girl problem going on that seems to happen a lot with female characters in YA books. Archer and Luc were also two of my favorite guys, they were some classy people yo. They were slow chicken dancing type of classy….and they were also ridiculously funny.

I now feel that this review is going to have more gifs than review…which somehow doesn’t seem to bother me as much as it normally would for a review. ALL THE GIFS!! The story line in this book was just awesome, there wasn’t a dull moment that made me sit there and space out while reading it and there was so much action. I love me a well written fight scene and there were many.

This is a series ending that I felt concluded everything well and made me extremely happy. No major cliffhangers, questions not answered, flock of seagulls…you know.

I highly recommend this series and basically any other books out there by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Go read them and enjoy!
