Review:The Spiral Down (The Fall Up #2) by Aly Martinez



I was afraid to fly.
He made me soar.


After years of climbing the ladder of success in the music industry, I finally had everything I could want. 
Yet I still found myself wandering through life alone.

Captain Evan Roth was the one man I never saw coming. 
Tall, dark, mysterious… Straight. 

We were both damaged beyond repair and searching for something so elusive we weren’t sure it even existed.

But, when two broken souls collide in midair, falling is a given.

I just never expected to crave the spiral down.


Review:


''It wasn't supposed to happen like that. But, for reasons lost on me, Evan could strip whatever disguise I attempted to hide behind. Fame, fortune, fear. He saw through them all.''

From the first moment when i've first read about Henry in The Fall Up i liked that guy,but now after reading his story i can say that i love him. It seems that i loved his story more than Leeve's ,it was pretty much epic and abso-freaking-lutely perfect for Henry. Many ups and downs,but it was an amazing love story about two amazing guys -two guys who had a bad past and who needed each other.

Henry made me laugh a lot and i have to admit that i enjoyed reading about the way he planned everything,the way he started to do some things so he could get Evan's attention. Funny?Yeah. But it was pretty much intense from the beginning everything that happened between them.
They both were amazing characters and it was perfect the way they were together,even if it was a little hard for Evan to accept what was happening.

His laugh. His randomness. The way he can captivate me from across a room. The rush I felt when we were together. It was the closest thing to flying I’ve ever experienced with my feet on the ground.


Henry Alexander has almost everything he needs:an amazing career,fame and money,a good best friend and he could have anyone he wanted. But those things weren't enough. He wanted to find true love..And to know if someone could love the real Henry,not the facade.
Evan's life turned upside down from the moment he was called from work to do the impossible..But his life turned upside down in a good way,because somehow in that moment he realized that he deserved to love and be loved by someone..Yet he never thought that he would find love sooner.

Those guys were crazy,they made me laugh a lot,but at the same time they showed me that everything in this life is possible. It was pretty much hilarious everything Henry planned ..But Evan's reaction? Well,speechless here.

"It's time for you to get used to the fact that I'm here to stay as long as you want me." I pressed a hard kiss to his lips.

Ups and downs,people! A rollercoaster of emotional and hard moments. Two stubborn people. Yet the result was breathtaking.
I'm not kidding when i say that i liked Henry's story more than Leeve's. It was more than i expected and it was really fun to discover the truth about the real Henry .

I never expected something easy and i'm glad that it wasn't. What was happening between Henry and Evan was something that it couldn't have worked without a few bumps and bruises.

Review:Priceless (Forbidden Men #8) by Linda Kage



Three things in my life were fact.
I needed Sarah to survive.
I needed sex to remain sane.
And I could never mix sex with Sarah.

I just knew—deep in my marrow—that if I did, I’d somehow lose her. All my deepest darkest secrets would crack open, bleed out, and ruin everything between us. I wouldn’t unleash the shit inside me on my worst enemy, let alone her. So she stayed strictly in the friend zone.

People probably thought I never went there with her because of her cerebral palsy, but f*ck them. She knew she was the most important person in my world, and I wasn’t about to risk hurting our relationship just to make my c*ck happy.

Until the moment she begged me to take her virginity.
Now it’s all about to hit the fan, because how the hell do you resist the one person forbidden to you when she says please?

--Brandt Gamble


Review:


''This right here—every single piece of you—is very precious cargo to me. If anyone mistreated it, I’d lose my shit. You’re not just my best friend, you’re my sanity. You’re priceless, Sarah.”

Recenzie:Printesa Mecanica (Dispozitive Infernale #3) de Cassandra Clare.


Dacă singura modalitate de a salva lumea ar fi să distrugi ceea ce iubeşti cel mai mult, ai face-o?
Ceasul ticăie.
Toată lumea trebuie să aleagă.
Tessa Gray ar trebui să fie fericită – nu aşa se simt toate miresele? Şi totuşi, în timp ce pregătirile sunt în toi pentru nunta ei cu Jem Carstairs, o pânză de păianjen întunecată începe să se ţeasă în jurul vânătorilor de umbre de la Institutul din Londra. Un nou demon îşi face apariţia, unul legat prin sânge şi taină de Magistru, bărbatul care plănuieşte să-şi folosească armata de automate nemiloase, Dispozitivele Infernale, pentru a-i distruge pe vânătorii de umbre. Nu mai are nevoie decât de un singur lucru pentru a-şi pune în aplicare planul diabolic. Primejdiile şi trădările, secretele şi magia, şi firele încâlcite ale iubirilor şi ale pierderilor se împletesc pe măsură ce vânătorii de umbre ajung la un pas de distrugere în acest final cutremurător şi surprinzător al trilogiei DISPOZITIVE INFERNALE.

Recenzie:


In acest moment incerc sa gasesc cuvintele potrivite pentru aceasta recenzia,insa se pare ca o sa fie un pic mai greu.
Am adorat seria Dispozitive Infernale de la inceput,fapt care m-a facut sa sper ca o sa aiba parte de un sfarsit spectaculos si genial. Si exact asa a fost.
Daca primele doua volume din aceasta serie au fost pline de surprize,ultimul volum ne-a oferit momente de neuitat pline de actiune si emotii coplesitoare,pot sa spun ca siacest volum a avut multe surprize.
Adevarul este ca multe lucruri care s-au intamplat in aceasta carte m-au lasat fara cuvinte ,m-au facut sa ma simt de parca o parte din mine nu accepta faptul ca asta era finalul si ca majoritatea lucrurilor care se petreceau,intr-un fel, mi-au frant inima,mai ales cand venea vorba de Jem si sanatatea lui fragila. Insa de data asta autoarea ne-a oferit o carte plina de decizii dificile,momente intense si,intr-un final,un roller-coaster de emotii care te pot pune la pamant.

Pe langa tot ceea ce intampla cu triunghiul amoros,cel mai mult mi-au placut momentele in care Vanatorii de Umbre se luptau cu automatele Magistrului. Acele scene erau fascinante si foarte interesante,chit ca uneori ma faceau sa ma simt de parca ma asteptam la ce-l mai rau lucru din lume.
Cel mai dificil moment? Atunci cand Will a crezut ca parabatai-ul sau a murit..O scena care mi-a frant inima. O scena dureroasa care m-a facut sa imi doresc ca lucrurile sa se fi intamplat in alt fel..Dar recunosc ca am ajuns la concluzia ca asa era cel mai bine.
Personajele au evolut si mai mult in Printesa Mecanica. Mult mai puternice,hotarate si incapatanate,foarte fascinante,tinand cont de faptul ca incercau sa supravietuiasca,sa puna punct inainte ca ceva ingrozitor sa se intample.

Socant dar adevarat,am ajuns sa-mi placa de fratii Lightwood. Doi Vanatori de Umbre care ma scoteau din sarite prima data cand am citit despre ei,insa pas cu pas am inceput sa-mi schimb parerea despre cei doi. Cel mai tare ma amuza cuvintele pe care si le aruncau  Will si Gabriel unul altuia. Era destul de clar ca nu se suportau.
De Gideon nu as putea sa spun ca era un personaj rau,doar ca uneori am avut senzatia ca era pus pe fapte rele,asta pana m-am convins cu adevarat ca nu era adevarat si ca era de partea lui Charlotte.
Cand vine vorba despre Tessa,Will si Jem ,pot doar sa spun ca tot ceea ce s-a intamplat a fost o nebunie curata,mai ales dupa felul in care s-a terminat cartea. Recunosc,recunosc! Mi-a placut,chiar daca totul s-a complicat in asa fel incat la un moment dat nu mai stiam ce sa cred. Complicat sau nu,a fost exact ceea ce m-a facut sa ador povestea asta.

Nu o sa scriu mai mult despre ce s-a intamplat. O poveste fascinanta care merita citita,cu personaje incredibile si o actiune  are provoaca dependenta.

Review:Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street—and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will—the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.
 


Review:


The adventure continues in the second book in the Infernal Devices series,Clockwork Prince.An adventure full of surprises,secrets,betrayal,but an adventure in which the characters evolve,moment in which those characters transform,becoming more complex ,up and down moments that are good or bad.Depends.

As soon as i finished reading the first book i couldn't stop myself from reading Clockwork Prince,because i was really ,really curious to know what will happen next with the Shadowhunters and with Tessa..But,i have to admit that i want more to know ,especially after the way the first book ended,what will happen with Will.
I was constantly wondering and trying to pin-point what could happen next with WIll,Jem,Tessa,Charlotte and Henry,if they will have a chance to catch Mortmain,before something bad could happen,but what i've read in this book left me speechless.

WHen i started reading Clockwork Prince a part of me wanted something easy and i wished that things won't complicate because of Mortmain,but the other part of me was really curious to know what he was capable of and what he will do next.Especially because how desperate he was to have Tessa.But,it seems that i got something more intense:the hard choice to choose between two amazing Shadowhunters.Poor Tessa.Usually,when it comes to love triangles i feel like i want to punch something,especially if the main character heroine ends up being with exactly the character i don't like(i know it sounds stupid..).YEt in this case it's more complicated ,because WIll and Jem managed to win my heart and both showed the fact that they loved Tessa and that both were good for her,even if Will's declaration was a little late.

Despite the love triangle,there was another problem:If Charlotte was good enough to be in charge of the London Institute.
Charlotte is one of my favorite characters and this problem was something i didn't like at all,mainly because Benedict Lightwood was the one who accused her.And the fact that Mortmain dissapeared wasn't helping anyone.

From the beginning untile the end there were a lot of surprises.Some good,some bad,but once again i was shocked when one member of the London Institute betrayed the Shadowhunters.Shocking?Yes.Did i expect it?Yeah.
I always thought that Jessamine's future was unclear.I can't say that i don't like her,but sometimes i got the feeling that her plans were different and that i couldn't trust her.Meeting Nathaniel Gray,Tessa's brother,made her change her path completely.

I was glad that things change,even if they didn't catch Mortmain.In this book i got the chance to read more about Will,about his family and childhood... about the reason why he left his family behind,choosing to become a Shadowhunter and why he was acting like he didn't care about anyone.Almost every single secret he was keeping hidden,even from Jem.Shocking or not,i was hoping that one day i'll find out the truth about Will and the reason why he was trying so hard to make everyone hate him.Even if i loved his attitude,i have to admit that what happened next was interesting and perfect.

A lot of ups and downs,unexpected surprises and,i could say:everything combined.
I was fascinated by this story,the way everything evolved and the way things happened step by step.I can't wai to read the next book,especially now that i know that a new Herondale memeber will join the Institute.

Recenzie:Printul mecanic (Dispozitive Infernale #2) de Cassandra Clare


În lumea magică a Londrei Victoriene, Tessa Gray şi-a şăsit În Sfârşit Locul, Alături de vânătorii de umbre. Dar liniştea se dovedeşte a fi trecătoare când forţe întunecate din Conclav plănuiesc s-o înlăture pe Charlotte, protectoarea ei, de la conducerea Institutului. Dacă se va întâmpla acest lucru, Tessa va ajunge pe străzi, pradă uşoară pentru misteriosul Magistru, care urmăreşte să se folosească de puterile ei în scopuri nu tocmai nobile.

Cu ajutorul lui Will şi Jem, Tessa descoperă că războiul purtat de Magistru împotriva vânătorilor de umbre este cât se poate de personal. El îi învinuieşte pentru o tragedie petrecută cu mult timp în urmă, din pricina căreia, susţine el, viaţa îi fusese distrusă. Pentru a descoperi secretele trecutului, cei trei prieteni călătoresc din Yorkshire-ul învăluit în ceaţă spre un conac de care sunt legate poveşti cumplite; din cartierele sărăcăcioase ale Londrei spre o sală de bal fermecătoare, unde Tessa descoperă că adevărul despre originile ei este mult mai sinistru decât îşi închipuise vreodată. Când se întâlnesc cu un demon mecanic, care-i transmite lui Will un avertisment, aceştia înţeleg că Magistrul le ştie fiecare mişcare – şi că unul dintre apropiaţii lor i-a trădat.

Tessa realizează că inima îi bate din ce în ce mai tare pentru Jem, însă dorinţa de a fi cu Will, în pofida stărilor lui sumbre, continuă să o tulbure. Dar ceva se schimbă în Will – zidul pe care băiatul şi-l construise în jurul lui începe să se năruie. Dacă-l vor găsi pe Magistru, va putea oare Will să se elibereze de secretele sale şi să-i ofere Tessei răspunsurile legate de originea şi de menirea ei?

În vreme ce căutarea Magistrului, dar şi a adevărului, îi pune pe cei trei prieteni în situaţii primejdioase, Tessa înţelege că, atunci când amesteci dragostea cu minciunile, poţi corupe chiar şi cea mai curată inimă.
 

Recenzie:


Aventura continua in al doilea volum din seria Dispozitive Mortale,adica Printul Mecanic.O aventura plina de surprize,secrete,tradare,dar si o aventura in care personajele devin din ce in ce mai complexe,au parte de momente care le transforma,dandu-le viata complet peste cap sau facandu-le viata mult mai buna.Depinde de situatie.

Cum am terminat primul volum m-am apucat de acesta,deoarece eram foarte ,foarte curioasa sa aflu ce se v-a intampla in continuare cu Vanatorii de Umbre si cu Tessa...Dar ,recunosc,cel mai mult eram curioasa sa aflu ,mai ales dupa ce sfarsit a avut primul volum,ce avea de gand Will sa faca..
Am cam stat ca pe jar,fiind prea curioasa sa aflu daca de data asta Will,Jem,Tessa,Charlotte si Henry vor reusi sa-l prinda pe Mortmain,inainte ca acesta sa faca alti pasi periculosi care sa le puna viata in pericol,insa ceea ce am primit m-a lasat fara cuvinte.

Cand am inceput sa citesc aceasta carte o parte din mine spera ca totul sa fie simplu si ca Mortmain sa nu complice totul mai rau,insa cealalta parte din mine era atat de curioasa sa afle de ce e in stare acel personaj incat abia asteptam sa aflu urmatorul pas pe care il v-a face.Mai ales cand vine vorba de disperarea lui de a pune mana pe Tessa.Insa,se pare ca am avut parte de ceva mult mai intens,adica cumplita alegere pe care Tessa a trebuit sa o faca in legatura cu cei doi Vanatori de Umbra.De obicei cand vine vorba de triunghiuri amoroase imi cam vine sa ma dau cu capul de pereti,mai ales daca cumva se intampla ca ea sa ramana cu unul dintre personajele care nu imi place mie(ridicol,stiu,dar asta-i adevarul!).Doar ca in cazul asta e un pic mai complicat ,mai ales ca atat Will,cat si Jem,au reusit sa-mi castige inima,sa ma faca sa ii plac de la inceput si mai ales au demonstrat faptul ca amandoi o iubea ,ca amandoi erau buni pentru ea,chit ca lui Will i-a luat cam mult sa faca acest lucru.

Pe langa acel triunghiul amoros,am mai avut de-a face cu o alta problema:Daca Charlotte era potrivita sau nu sa conduca in continuare Institutul din Londra.
Avand in vedere faputl ca Charlotte este una dintre personajele mele preferate din aceasta carte,toata problema asta nu mi-a placut deloc,in mare parte din cauza ca Benedict Lightwood este cel care o acuza de unele lucruri care pareau imature.Iar disparitia completa a lui Mortmain nu o ajuta pe Charlotte in nici un fel.

De la inceputul cartii pana la sfarsit am avut parte de foarte multe surprize.Unele placute,altele neplacute,insa partea socanta a fost cand un membru al Institului din Londra ii tradeaza pe Vanatorii de Umbra.Socant?Da.Ma asteptam la asta?Cam da.
Intotdeauna am crezut ca viitorul lui Jessamine era unul neclar.Nu zic ca nu mi-a placut de ea,insa uneori imi dadea senzatia ca planurile ei erau diferite .Faptul ca il intalnise pe Nathaniel Gray,fratele Tessei, a indemnat-o sa faca un pas in directia gresita.

M-am bucurat ca lucrurile s-au schimbat cat de cat,chiar daca Mortmain nu a fost prins.
In aceasta carte am avut sansa sa aflu mai multe despre Will,despre familia lui si copilaria lui,dar si despre adevartul motiv de ce i-a lasat in urma,alegand sa devina un Vanator de Umbra,cat si despre comportamentul lui respingator.In mare parte acele secrete pe care le tinea mereu ascunse,chiar si de Jem.Surprinzator sau nu,speram ca intr-o buna zi(sau in volumul 2 sau 3) sa aflu adevarul despre Will si motivul din cauza caruia incerca sa-i faca pe toti sa il dispretuiasca.Oricat de mult am adorat comportamentul lui ,trebuie sa recunosc ca ce a urmat dupa ce toata lumea a afla adevarul a fost si mai interesant.

Multe urcusuri si coborasuri,surprize neasteptate si ,as putea sa zic mai pe romaneste:de toate amestecate.
Pe mine m-a fascinat aceasta poveste,felul in care a evoluat si felul in care lucrurile s-au intamplat pas cu pas.Abia astept sa aflu ce se v-a intampla in continuare,mai ales acum ca stiu ca un nou membru al familie Herondale si-a facut aparitia la Institut.

Noutati in biblioteca mea..+ o melodie pusa pe repeat.+ #Recomandare


Desi recunosc ca nu prea postez la categoria ''Noutati in biblioteca mea'',recent am inceput sa mai adaug carti in biblioteca mea.Nu multe,dar asa putin cate putin incep sa imi completez seriile sau sa cumpar altele.

Noutatile din biblioteca mea sunt:
Seria completa Labirintul de James Dashner.
Cartile au fost publicate la editura Litera.
Avand in vedere faptul ca sunt o mare fana a filmelor,imediat cum am vazut cartile in librarie mi-am spus ca trebuie sa le am si mai ales ca trebuie sa le citesc ASAP.Primele doua carti(recunosc!)le-am citit deja in engleza,dar am de gand sa le recitesc si o sa le scriu recenziile.
Daca nu ati vazut ecranizarile primelor doua volume din aceasta serie,va recomand sa cititi cartile inainte,asa ca sa va faceti o mica idee despre toata povestea.
Ceea ce trebuie sa recunosc este faptul ca,desi mi-au placut filmele,prefer cartile de o mie de ori.Da,exista diferente intre film si carte,ca intotdeauna,dar sincera sa fiu ambele variante merita.

#Recomandarea zilei.

Si...Daca tot am mentionat filmele,o sa pun si trailer-ul pentru The Maze Runner 1 si 2.

The Maze Runner 1.
The Maze Runner 2:Scorch Trials.

Dupa cum am spus daca nu ati citit cartile sau nu ati vazut filmele adaugati-l ASAP pe listele de Must read and Must see.

Pe langa seria Labirintul am reusit sa imi completez si seria Dispozitive Infernale de Cassandra Clare.Singura carte care imi lipsea era volumul trei,adica Printesa Mecanica.Cartile au fost publicate la editura Leda.
Recent am terminat de citit primul volum,Ingerul Mecanic,si am postat recenzia pe blog(dati click pe titlu si o sa puteti sa cititi recenzia.In caz ca nu ati citit-o pana acuma).
Ador copertile alese pentru aceasta seria si ma bucur foarte mult ca nu le-au schimbat atunci cand le-au publicat la noi in tara.

In prezent,citesc al doilea volum din seria Dispozitive Infernale,adica Printul Mecanic,insa mereu apare cate ceva care ma impiedica sa citesc *sigh*.Sper ca azi sau maine sa o termin,apoi o sa postez recenzia pe blog.

Daca ati citit cartile:Ce parere aveti?Care este Vanatorul de Umbre preferat?
Daca nu ati citit:Va recomand sa cititi aceasta serie.Este superba!


Si...Melodia care o am pusa pe repeat..

Review:Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare



In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Timesbestselling Mortal Instruments series.

The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them...


Review:



Starting this series i realized the fact that i stepped into a new whole world.Mysterious and full of adventures,with fantastic and strong characters,capable of distroying everything or creating amazing scenes,scenes that make you believe that everything is possible,and it makes you want to know more about that world.
Even if i'm not a big fan of book written from 3rd point of view,it seems that i have some exception,and this one ended up being one of those exceptions.
I admit that i prepared myself from the beginning,thinking that maybe this book will be just another book with simple magical creatures and nothing else,but what i found it can't be described in just a few words.

Cassandra Clare managed to offer us an incredible world,a world in which the vampires,werewolfes,warlocks and demons coexist,but her greatest achievement are the Shadowhunters,the nephilims.Half human,half angel.Strong,charming and capable of anything just to protect the human kind,the way they were described was good,charming and very interesting.
I was fascinated by this story from the beginning.Because of the way it started and how things evolved step by step,transformind into a captivanting and brilliant story.

Tessa Gray's life changed completely after her aunt Harriet died.Being called by her brother in London,all Tessa wanted was to see Nathaniel again and live her life.But what she finds in Lodon isn't exactly what she hoped for,especially when things start getting stranger and stranger.
Nephilims.Demons.Vampire...and what not.Will Tessa understand that her life will never be the same again?

I liked Tessa from the beginning.I liked the fact that she was a strong character,stubborn and capable of learning everything.She proved that she was brave,especially in the beginning when she was the prisoner of some magicians,the Sisters Dark,and every time she was put in  dangerous situations.But i have to admit that some times her stubborness was annoying.
My opinion started to change step by step,especially when the nephilims appeared,mainly my favorite Shadowhunters:William Herondale and James Carstairs.They mamanged to make me fall in love more with this magical world.

William Herondale was described as the rebel of the group,the one who always has a smile on his face and looks like he is always in a good mood,but he os the one who has more things to hide.The type of character that fascinate me ,making me hope that i'll get the chance to read more about him.Charming attitude.Handsome.A good fighter.But exactly the type of character that ends up sacrificing everything for those who he loves.

The truth is Will wasn't the only one who caught my attention.James Carstairs(or Jem) is exactly the oppossite of Will,but he managed to win my heart with his kindness and simple way of being.Charming and handsome,but Jem can win your heart fast and easy.Same as Will,Jem is a good Shadowhunter,but he has a weakness that prevents him from being a fantastic fighter,yet that doesn't stops him from fighting.Even if i'm a little dissapointed because of that,i know what happened to Jem in the past and i can say that despite that he is an amazing character.Having an painfull past,Jem managed to surprise me until the end:he is the kind of character who never gives up,even if sometimes it was too hard for him to do something.
Question:How can i ever choose between them?Especially when they both are very charming and incredbile.

The story gets complicated,transfroming step by step into an aventure full of surprises and captivating moments.Sometimes i had to hold my breath,because some scenes were very intenses and i hated the fact that i couldn't pin-point what could happen next.
I admit that i didn't expect the way the story turned out at some point,especially after Tessa was saved from the Sisters Dark.I didn't expect the betrayal that follwed after everything that happened,or the way the action happened when those mechanincal creatures appeared.Yet Tessa's powers were the ones that fascinated me the most,even if she didn't know what she really was.

What i liked the most was the fact that from the beginning until the end there was a lot of actions,intense moments,suspense and a lot of things.A lot of ups and downs,especially when Tessa started learning about Downworlders and Nephilims.Even if her reaction was funny(i think i would have reacted worse then her),step by step the amusament dissapeard,because everything changed and evolved into something fascinating.

Besides those three characters,i had the pleasure to read about other amazing Shadowhunters:Charlotte and Henry Branwell,the liders of the London Institute.Two amazing characters i enjoyed reading about.A warlock(it wasn't the first time when i've read about him) named Magnus Bane,even if he was present just a little in this book.Those are the only characters that i liked and i hope to read more about them.
I loved the fighting scenes,the way those scenes were described,but what i loved the most was the fact that i could imagine in my mind how things happened.

I can say that this book is worth reading.The beginning of this adventure fascinatd me and made me curious,which means that i'll start reading the next book soon enough.I'm sure that i will devore that book,exactly how i did it with the first one.
Read this book ASAP!

Recenzie:Îngerul mecanic (Dispozitive Infernale #1) de Cassandra Clare



TESSA GRAY, o adolescentă de şaisprezece ani, traversează oceanul pentru a-şi găsi fratele. Destinaţia ei este Anglia, în plină epocă victoriană, dar ceva terifiant o aşteaptă în Lumea de Jos a Londrei, unde vampiri, vrăjitori şi alte creaturi supranaturale bântuie străzile iluminate cu gaz.
Numai vânătorii de umbre, războinici hotărâţi să scape lumea de demoni, menţin cât de cât ordinea în acest haos. Răpită de misterioasele Surori Întunecate, membre ale unei organizaţii secrete numite clubul Pandemonium, Tessa află curând că ea însăşi face parte din Lumea de Jos şi că este posesoarea unui talent rar: puterea de a se transforma, după propria-i voinţă, într-o altă persoană. Însă Magistrul, o figură misterioasă care conduce clubul, nu se va da în lături de la nimic pentru a face ca puterea Tessei să-i aparţină.
Fără prieteni şi hăituită, Tessa se refugiază la vânătorii de umbre de la Institutul din Londra, care jură să-i găsească fratele dacă ea îşi va folosi puterea pentru a-i ajuta. Tessa descoperă că e fascinată, în aceeaşi măsură, de doi prieteni buni: James, a cărui frumuseţe fragilă ascunde un secret mortal, şi Will, cel cu ochi albaştri, ale cărui stări de spirit schimbătoare, alături de o ironie caustică îi ţin pe toţi la distanţă... pe toţi în afară de Tessa. Pe măsură ce căutarea lor îi atrage tot mai adânc în inima unei urzeli oculte care ameninţă să-i distrugă pe vânătorii de umbre, Tessa îşi dă seama că ar putea fi nevoită să aleagă între a-şi salva fratele şi a-şi ajuta noii prieteni să salveze lumea… şi că dragostea poate fi cea mai periculoasă magie.
 

RecenzIe:


Incepand aceasta serie am realizat faptul ca am pasit intr-o lume noua.Misterioasa si plina de aventuri in care exista personaje fantastice si puternice,capabile sa distruga orice sau sa creeze scene minunate,care te pot face sa crezi ca totul este posibil ,dar mai ales te pot face sa iti doresti sa afli mai mult despre lumea respectiva.
Chit ca nu sunt o fana mare a cartilor scrise la persoana a treia,se pare ca am unele exceptii,iar seria Dispozitive Infernale se afla printre acele exceptii.
Recunosc ca de la inceput m-am pregatit sufleteste crezand ca o sa dau peste o poveste plina de creaturi magice simple,insa ceea ce am gasit in aceasta carte nu se poate descrie in cateva cuvinte simple.

Cassandra Clare a reusit sa ne ofere o lume incredibila , o lume in  care vampiri,varcolaci,magicieni si demoni exista,insa cea mai mare realizare in aceasta carte este prezenta Vanatorilor de Umbre,adica nefilimi. Jumatate oameni,jumatate ingeri. Puternici,fermecatori si capabili de orice ca sa protejeze omenirea ,nefilimi sunt cei care au primit din partea autoarea o descriere destul de complexa,fermecatoare si foarte interesanta.
Am fost fascinata de aceasta poveste. De felul in care a inceput si cum a evoluat pe parcurs,transformandu-se intr-o poveste captivanta si geniala.

Viata Tessei Gray s-a schimbat complet dupa moartea matusii Harriet. Fiind chemata de catre fratele sau in Londra,tot ceea ce Tessa sperase fusese sa-l revada pe Nathaniel si sa isi vada de viata ei .Insa ceea ce gaseste in Londra nu este ceea ce sperase ea,mai ales cand lucrurile devin din ce in ce mai bizare.
Nefilimi. Demoni. Vampiri...si toate cele. Va reusi oare Tessa sa inteleaga faptul ca viata sa nu va mai fi la fel vreodata?

Am adorat-o pe Tessa de la inceput. Mi-a placut faptul ca este un personaj puternic,incapatanat si capabil de a invata orice. A dat dovada de curaj ,mai ales la inceput cand era prizioniera unor magiciene ,surorile Intunecate,dar si de fiecare data cand era pusa in fata pericolului. Insa intr-un fel as putea sa spun ca incapatanarea ei era enervanta uneori.
Parerea mea a inceput sa se schimbe pas cu pas,mai ales cand au inceput sa apara nefilimi,principali favoriti fiind William Herondale si James Carstairs,doi Vanatori de Umbre neinfricati ,care m-au facut sa ma indragostec mai tare de lumea magica creata de aceasta autoare.

William Herondale este descris ca fiind rebelul grupului,cel care desi schiteaza tot timpul cate un zambet si pare mai mereu intr-o stare buna,este exact cel care are cel mai mult de ascuns. Este genul de personaj care ma fascineaza intotdeauna,facandu-ma sa sper ca o sa am sansa sa citesc mai mult despre el. O atitudine fermecatoare. Foarte chipes. Un bun luptator. Un adevarat cuceritor.Insa Will este exact genul de personaj care se sacrifica mereu pentru cei care ii iubeste.

Adevarul este ca si James Carstairs(sau Jem) mi-a atras atentia. Fiind exact opusul lui Will,James a reusit sa ma cucereasca doar cu bunatatea si simplitatea sa. La fel de fermecator si chipes,insa Jem are darul sa iti castige inima doar prin felul lui de a fii. La fel ca si Will,Jem este un Vanator de Umbre fantastic,insa din pacate are o slabiciune care il impiedica sa fie incredibil in lupta ,doar in unele momente. Recunosc ca sunt un pic dezamagita ,dar acum ca stiu ce i s-a intamplat lui Jem in trecut pot sa spun ca tot ceea ce conteaza este faptul ca este un personaj incredibil. Avand un trecut destul de dureros,Jem m-a uimit pana la capat ,doar prin simplul fapt ca nu renunta niciodata,chiar daca uneori ii era prea greu sa faca ceva.

Intrebare:Cum as putea sa aleg intre cei doi?Mai ales ca atat Will,cat si Jem sunt doua personaje fermecatoare si incredibile.
Povestea se complica,transformandu-se pas cu pas intr-o aventura plina de surprize si scene captivante. Au existat momente cand pur s simplu mi-am tinut respiratia,deoarece unele scene erau destul de intense si imi era imposibil sa ghicesc ce va urma.
Recunosc ca nu m-am asteptat la intorsatura care a luat-o povestea la un moment dat,mai ales dupa ce Tessa a fost salvata din mainile Surorilor Intunecate de catre Will si alti Vanatori de Umbre. Nu m-am asteptat la tradarea care a urmat,sau felul in care s-a desfasurat actiunea cand au aparut creaturile mecanice create de Magistrul. Insa cel mai mult ma fascinat puterea Tessei,chit ca nu stia ce era ea de fapt.

Cel mai mult mi-a placut faptul ca de la inceput pana la sfarsit am avut parte de actiune,momente intense,suspans si multe alte lucruri. Multe urcusuri si coborasuri,mai ales cand Tessa a inceput sa invete despre Lumea de Jos sau despre Nefilimi. Oricat de amuzanta mi s-a parut reactia ei(eu as fi reactionat mai rau),pas cu pas amuzamentul a disparut,deoarece totul s-a schimbat devenind din ce in ce mai fascinant.

Pe langa aceste trei personaje ,am avut placerea sa citesc despre alti Vanatori de Umbre incredibili:Charlotte si Henry Branwell. Conducatorii Institutului din Londra. Doua personaje minunate ,despre care mi-a placut sa citesc. Un magician(despre care am citit in alta serie scrisa de aceasta autoare) pe nume Magnus Bane,chit ca in aceasta carte a aparut putin. Ei sunt singurele personaje care mi-au placut si despre care sper sa mai citesc in continuare.
Ador scenele de lupta,felul in care sunt descrise,mai ales ca reusesc sa imi imaginez cat de cat cum s-ar intampla totul.

Pot sa spun ca merita sa citesti aceasta carte. Pe mine inceputul acestei aventuri ma fascinat si ma facut destul de curioasa,ceea ce inseamna ca in curand o sa ma apuc de volumul doi. Cu siguranta o sa-l devorez,asa cum am facut si cum primul volum.
Va recomand sa cititi cartea. Eu cred ca merita.

Short Review:Hetch (Men OF S.W.A.T. Book 1) by River Savage



Save
verb \ˈsāv\

1 a: Keep safe or rescue (someone or something) from harm or danger.

Synonyms: rescue, come to someone's rescue, save someone's life, set free, liberate, deliver, extricate.

Saving lives is the end goal.
It's a responsibility I live with every day, the reason I wear the badge.
Built on a brotherhood that runs deeper than blood, this way of life has become my very existence...

Until Liberty.

I thought I was saving her.

I never expected her to be the one saving me.
 


Short Review:


''You crashed into my life with your jacked-up vibrator, and your inappropriate notes, and you saved me. You saved me when I didn’t know I needed saving.'' 

This was something new ,something that caught my attention and it made me want to know what it was about.Intense moments,two stubborn and interesting main characters,a story full of ups and downs and a clear message: when something hard happens to you ,you have to open up to someone,not push them away.

I was one step away from giving this book more than four stars,but something happened and i changed my mind.The whole story was interesting and captivanting.It had amazing characters,whom made this book pretty good and intense,yet at some point i wanted to stop reading this book.I guess i started to feel like everything was happening too fast and too easy.I have to admit that i laughed out loud because of the way this book started,something that was main reason why i decided to try and see if things will change.

''Yeah. Like when someone doesn’t know their vision isn’t perfect. They think they can see fine. But the moment they put those glasses on for the first time, they see everything so clearly, so vivid. They realize how much detail and beauty they’ve been missing. That’s Hetch. He’s my glasses.” No one says anything for a beat, and I wonder if they’re thinking about having me committed. I smell, I haven’t eaten, and I’ve started talking in metaphors and similes.

Liberty and Liam are the main characters of this book.It helped the fact that it was written from their point of views,in that way i had the chance to understand a lot of things,especially about what was happening to Liam.Both stubborn and very determined,but i loved the chemistry they had between them.It was pretty intense from the beginning,even if the way they met was pretty hilarious.

It was fun and intense,with a lot of ups and downs,yet a true love story,even if in a way it was pretty crazy.Not really romantic or very emotional,but a hot-mess!
A true love story about two people who never thought they needed to fall in order for them to see the real beauty of life and love.
-A book about one man who was drowning in his sorrow,guilt and questions.always lying to everyone else,even if he knew deep down in his heart that he wasn't okay .Until her.Until she saved him from drowning.
-A book about a woman whose life was spinning around her job.A workaholic who didn't know that love was the best cure for everything.Until him.Until the sexy neighbor ,a SWAT officer who turned her life upside down.

Things changed,everything transformed into a hot-mess,intense and mind-blowing,but still it didn't change my opinion about some things.
I liked the fact that it made me laugh and smile a lot ,especially when it came to the main characters.They were pretty much crazy,but in a good way.

Review:The Fall Up (The Fall Up, #1) by Aly Martinez


I wanted to jump. 
He made me fall.

As a celebrity, I lived in the public eye, but somewhere along the way, I’d lost myself in the spotlight.

Until he found me.

Sam Rivers was a gorgeous, tattooed stranger who saved my life with nothing more than a simple conversation.

But we were both standing on that bridge for a reason the night we met. The secrets of our pasts brought us together—and then tore us apart.

Could we find a reason to hold on as life constantly pulled us down?

Or maybe there’s only one direction to go when two people fall in love at rock bottom—up.

Review:


There isn’t a woman in the world who doesn’t have demons of some sort. No matter who I end up with, it’s always going to be a struggle.” I kissed her hair again, letting it linger as if my lips were able to transfer the truth of my words. “Levee, I’d like to struggle with you.” 


I remember when i've first read the description i wasn't sure if i wanted to read this book,but i decided to give it a chance and that maybe it won't be that bad.
Well,it wasn't bad,but i can't say that it became my favorite.
This is another book that gives us a sneak peek about what could happen in someone's life,when that person loses someone important or when he/she feels like her/his life is too hard to handle. The story of two people who met on a bridge and who had the same intention,but just one of them was capable of doing it. In fact, i could say that this book was about two people who saved each other and fell in love,despite everything that was happening in their lifes.

“The perpetual free fall was no match for the way he made me feel.
I was still falling at unstoppable speeds – only, in his arms, as his body claimed me without a single word spoken, I was suddenly falling…up.” 

Leeve Williams is a celebrity who has the whole world at her feet,but her real life isn't a good one. Dealing with everything is too much for her and her life almost spirals out of control. The reason why she was on the bridge that night. But everything changes when she met someone there,someone whose life made him go there,thinking about doing exactly what she had in mind.
Sam Rivers changes completely from the moment she saw her on that bridge,but his mind keeps reminding him what happened in the past,making him do exactly what she needed him do to. But Sam's fears could become reality and that's something that makes him fight harder for what he truly wants. But what if that isn't enough? What if..

I liked the whole idea and i enjoyed reading about Leeve and Sam. They were fun and pretty good characters,but i have to admit the fact that Leeve was a little annoying at some point. Sam? He was the only one who i liked from the beginning and the only one who made everything easier to read.

 I enjoyed reading book and it made me laugh a few time. Yes,it had a lot of ups and downs,especially when it came to the reasons why Sam and Leeve met on that bridge.

“I slid a hand down the rail to cover hers. 
It was a simple gesture, but it was easily the greatest decision I’d ever made. 
That one touched destroyed a wall. 
I wasn’t even sure whose wall it had been to begin with— hers or mine. But I would have spent my entire life tearing it down if I could have only predicted what was on the other side.” 

It wasn't bad and it had some pretty good moments,but the whole message was clear and it made me think about some things. I loved the fact that in some way this whole book was like a second chance for Sam and Leeve. A second chance to realize that despite everything that happened in the past,the present and the future were more important.And my favorite thing was the fact that this book was written from Sam and Leeve's point of views,giving me the chance to know what was in their minds.

Review:Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland Penelope Ward



From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was...God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man's phone for days―until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk's office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn't expect him to text back.
I didn't expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn't expect to fall for him―all before we even met.
The two of us couldn't have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract―we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn't prepared for where I'd wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

Review:


“Don't be afraid to get hurt. It's far better than never experiencing anything earth-shattering. Even temporary joy is better than nothing at all.”


And right now i can't wipe the smile that i have on my face. Why? Because i freaking loved this book. It made me laugh a lot and smile like a lunatic. I loved the conversations between the main characters- they were the reason why i liked this book. It was impossible for me not to enjoy reading this,especially when it had two stubborn and  amazing main characters.
But the whole story was pretty much insane and in a way i can say that it was exactly what i needed right now,even if i have to admit that there were some scenes that i hated with all my heart. Still do.
 They way this book started made me laugh out loud,turns out that that was just the beginning of an roller-coaster of emotional,swoon-worthy,sexy and intense moments. All worthy of my whole attention. Yet,at some point everything changes,transforming into something harder and huge,something that  forced one of the main characters to take a hard decision,even if that meant she had to break her own heart.

“Gorgeous, arrogant and pissed off?” 
I chuckled a little. “Yes, that’s him.


This book had it all:sexy ,intense and swoon-worthy moments; betrayal and trust issues;new step into the unknown,meaning the whole story about him being a rich guy and her being poor. The whole drama with an ex(and that't what i hated about this book). But they everything twisted and transformed into something amazing? Well,that was the best thing ever.

Soraya isn't the kind of woman who complains about her life,eve if it wasn't simple and easy. No way. But in a way she has everything she needs,until she is forced to step out of her comfort zone,doing something that she'd never thought she'll ever do. But never in her mind she thought that she will meet a Stuck-Up Suit who will change her life completely.
Graham Morgan decided it was best for him to act like a cold hearted man, to guard his heart and keep everyone away from him,meaning he was acting like a crazy bastard without caring whose feelings he steped on. That until a woman decides to confront him,telling him exactly what she had on her mind. And the unthinkable happened.

“My stop was next, but I wasn’t going to get off. Well, truthfully, I was getting off on something else: this highly tense staring contest. It dawned on me that she was also absorbing the fact that I, too, knew her identity.”

Yup,i was annoyed at first,cause in a way i hated Graham. The way he was acting and the fact that he was so sure of himself. That means,that,yeah,i wanted to shake some sense in him. Really,really bad. But,step by step,i started to realize that it was more..That behind that cold hearted Stuck-Up Suit,there was someone who i could end up liking. And that's how it ended..With me liking Graham. Yikes.
Soraya? She is my favorite. I loved her attitude and the fact that she confronted Graham like a pro. It was fun and i really enjoyed that. Yes,she has done some pretty stupid things,but i know why and it was enough for me to keep my first opinion about her.

I love it when i find a book that makes me laugh and think that yet again i had the chance to read something good. Yeah,it was full of ups and downs,especially when Graham found out about his daughter,but i still think that it was a very good story.


I enjoyed reading this book.

Review:Winter (Four Seasons, #1) by Frankie Rose



A girl with a dark history… 

Avery Bresllin took a leap of faith when she changed her name. As Avery Patterson, she is no longer the daughter of a serial killer. No longer the girl who was bullied and abused through high school. A fresh name and a fresh start at Columbia University means Avery can leave all that behind. There’s only one thing marring her dream of a clean slate…. 

A boy with a past of his own… 

Luke Reid has a lot going for him: sex appeal, badass tattoos and insane musical talent. Despite his guitar skills, his calling in life has always been to serve and protect. A NYPD cop by day, singer in rock band D.M.F by night, from the outside Luke seems like he’s got it made. But falling for a girl whose father was accused of deeply sinister acts—a man whom Luke shared a devastating history with, himself—only serves to complicated things. 

Pieces of a puzzle…. Four symbols, four methods of destruction. A trade. Borrowed wings. Dark secrets that threaten to destroy.

Review:


Sometimes,when i don't know what to read next, i keep searching on Goodreads,always looking and reading description until something makes me curious..And,that's how i found out about Winter.
I had my doubts,but instantly i loved the cover and i had to give this book a try,because the description was interesting and it was obvious that it had to be something good.Well,i never expected it to be a roller-coaster of emotional events..but,it was.

Avery's life wasn't simple like it should be.Hiding the fact that her dad was considered a killer,Avery's decided that it was better for her to change her name and to hide her true identity,but once again that changes when she saw Luke Reid at a party,reminding her about everything that happened and with that reminder comes hope.Hope ,that maybe she can find the truth about what happened with her dad.Hope ,that maybe one day she could live without hiding ,without looking over her shoulder,afraid of what could happen.But what if it isn't that simple?What if there are a lot of scary things that could change everythin gonce again..What if?
Luke Reid's life is a living hell.Between trying to be a good cop and trying t o live with the thought that the man who helped him the most was considered a killer,Luke is determined to help Avery,even if he doesn't know how.But Luke has his own demons,demons who haunt him and make him wish that everything was better,easier and good..Still,there are many ups and downs..What if his demons are too hard to fight?What if telling the truth won't do any good?What if...

This story had many ups and downs,it was completely crazy because there were many hard moments in which i never knew what to believe or what to think about what was happening.Yet,i found myself fascinated by the strenght and determination the main characters had in them.The way they were struggling to find out the truth and the way the were trying really hard to keep believing that they knew the truth,that Avery's dead wasn't capable of doing something horrible like that.
I enjoyed reading this book,mainly because i loved reading about how everything was described and because it was a mystery for me.Yeah,i kind of wanted to strangle Avery sometimes,but i got past that,especially when i started to understand her reasons and the rest.And Luke?That guy was a saint.Honestly!Yeah,i know he has a bad past and all the jazz,but he was constantly there helping Avery,despite his pain,despite the fact that he was having a hard time himself.

I guess,i was intrigued by some things and i wanted really bad to know who was the real killer or who was doing all those horrible things,but i can admit that i was a little shocked when i started to read about Luke's past.Shocking truth!But at least he ended up being a good guy,special and very interesting.
And Avery?She was the one who had to suffer the most,even if she didn't have anything to do with what happened.Yeah,he was her dad,but c'mon..Crazy,crazy!A roller-coaster of crazy events full of ups and downs..Yet i don't regret reading this book.
