Why I love Blogging About Books

Okay, so I know I've been bad the past few weeks about not posting anything, but I'm going to try and be better now. So, onto my post.

I love letting people know about the books that I've read, and how much I loved or hated them. I like getting feedback, and hearing other people's opinions as well, even if they disagree with me. And I know that I won't annoy my readers by talking about books. (I  tend to talk about books way too much with my family, and my sister especially, will roll her eyes and tell me to shut up.)

Review: If I Die by Rachel Vincent

My rating 5 (thousand) Stars
Date Read: September 2011

Date Published: September 27, 2011 Harlequin Teen
Paperback, 342 pages

Summary From Goodreads:
The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee's no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee—she screams when someone dies.
But the next scream might be for Kaylee.
Yeah—it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend's needy ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren't quite human, either.
But Kaylee's borrowed lifeline is nearing its end. And those who care about her will do anything to save her life. Anything.
My Review: (Contains Spoilers)
Before I read the book:
This is how it could possibly end:

Tod + Kaylee
Nash + Sabine and
Alec + Emma

And, oddly enough, I would be okay with that. :)

After I read the book:



I was right!! well, partially anyways. I can't believe it! I'm so ecstatic right now, that I'm bouncing off the walls. The last few books that I read had endings that were just kind of... Ehhh. And I was starting to get frustrated. but this book completely took care of that!

Kaylee and Tod's relationship was a long (long, long,long) time coming, even though to some people, it might have seemed rushed.And to those people, I say "You. Are. Crazy!" I have been waiting for this to happen since the second that Tod showed up.

The book still took a few twists that I wasn't expecting, and at one point, I thought that I was going to bawl my eyes out. (if you've read the book already, you'll know what I mean). But everything ended mostly okay, and now I really can't wait to see what happens next.

I love love LOVE Kaylee's relationships with Emma and Alec, and TOD. They are all so prtective of each other, And yes, I still love Nash, even though I think that he could use an itty-bitty attitude adjustment. Gosh, even Sabine is starting to grow on me... I still don't know how I feel about that.

When I got home today, imagine my surprise when I found a box with my name on it waiting for me by my front door. Curious, I opened it up, and was delighted to find not one, but TWO books in it! I had absolutely no idea that I was supposed to get them, but am very happy that I did! The two books were

The Fox Inheritance by Mary E. Pearson, and Hades by Alexandra Adornetto. (I had actually borrowed Hades from my library, and was in the process of reading it, when the box showed up)

Vampire Diaries!!

Tonight Vampire Diaries finally comes back! I can't wait. I get to see Damon (Who, at the moment I am in love with) And the whole Tyler/Caroline maybe relationship. I'm counting down the hours.

Not to mention the fact that right after Vampire Diaries is on, Secret Circle premiers! I'm really interested to see how it turns out. I wasn't too in love with the book series (A lot of the people I've talked to weren't in to the books either.) but I really liked  how they took VD and changed some things around, so we'll see..
