Well this book was really good. I usually never read YA books but I am glad I read this book. I give it a 5 out of 5. A perfect title for a perfect book! Perfect Chemistry kept me alert until the very end. Alex Fuentes came from a bad home and a bad side of town. He deals with gang involvement and has a bad boy reputation. His bad boy reputation hides the fact that he wants to break free from his gang. On the other hand Brittany Ellis is a good girl who has a good reputation but still has a bad home life. When they are paired together for a project sparks fly. This books allows you to look at both sides of the tracks and I love how the characters come together from totally different lifestyles and yet have so much in common. As they fall in love they start not to care what other people think and they learn to see what's on the inside and what lies beneath. This is a truly passionate story about two high school students falling in love against the odds. I really loved this book and hated when it ended. Books are all about the characters and I love how the author brought the characters to life. I actually felt like they were real and I knew them. This feeling is what makes reading worth while to me! There are two more books in this series that I just found out about and I will definitely be reading them both! They are called Rules of Attraction and Chain Reaction.

This was a really good short story, and a free e-Book on Barnes and Noble. I just got finished reading it. Sometimes it's just nice to read something short. This book had me on the edge of my seat. I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5.

Well, it's almost the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012. Every year I make resolutions to loose weight, work out, make straight A's, and so on... But this year I'm not going to make resolutions I'm just going to dive in and do what I've been saying that I'm going to do for years. I'm going to challenge myself. My challenge for 2012 is to read 200 books. I love to read so I don't think this will be a problem, but I am excited about this challenge because I've never really counted the books I've read I just read and move on to the next book. This should be interesting. I am excited about 2012 and all that will come with it like high school graduation, college, and moving out. Are you excited about 2012? What are your New Years Resolutions if you have any??

I am very happy to say that I have finally redesigned my blog. I love it now, it's organized now so things will be way easier to find! It took a lot of time because I am a perfectionist and everything had to look just right. But it is finally done, and I hope everyone likes it.

Swap.com is a great place to trade either books you have read, don't want anymore, or are just laying around for something you want. I love this website because I can get books I want for cheap seeing as you only have to pay for postage! Check it out. If you already use swap.com, what do you think about it?

I bought Eternal Rider and did a review on it already. But today in addition to the Lara Adrian complete series I bought Sin Undone and Immortal Rider! I am currently reading Immortal Rider and I have already read Sin Undone but I just wanted a paper copy also. I love Larissa Ione, she is my favorite author! If you haven't read her books I suggest you buy them all and read them, because once you start one you'll be begging for more! Does anyone love her books as much as I do? If you do I would love to discuss her books!

I haven't posted in a couple of days, The Holidays have had me very busy! I just read this book yesterday and I have to say it was awesome! I give it a 5 out of 5! This was a really good. I am so glad that this series still has a lot to to with the characters of the Demonica Series, because I fell in love with them just like I fell in love with the characters of this series. Larissa Ione is a phenomenal writer. I love reading her books. I rate this a 5 because it's so good! I started reading it yesterday and finished it yesterday because I literally couldn't put it down. Ares' personality is very conflicting, he tries to not care because of how badly he's been hurt in the past but he can't help but care for Cara. I love Cara she is very caring to everyone and understanding, but at the same time she doesn't take anyone's crap. Cara is a very brave and courageous person who didn't know it until she was faced with difficult situations. The sex scenes were very detailed and enjoyable, get ready for mind blowing chemistry between Ares and Cara. They make such a great couple. She is strong where he is weak and vice versa. I love the story of the Four Men of the Apocalypse! It puts a great twist on it. If you haven't read this book, you should definitely read it, it's fantastic! I know that this series will get way better and can't wait to see what else is in store for the sexy Horsemen of the Apocalypse!

This is by far the best book in this series! I absolutely love the plot and how the book unfolded. It kept me on my toes, I could never tell what was going to happen next. I literally read this whole series in about 1 week and a half. It blew my mind that Shanti was actually the devil, I would have never imagined that. This book was very fast paced. People didn't turn out the way you thought they would and this is what made me keep coming back for more. This is one of my favorite series'.

This is one of those books you never want to end! I would love this to become a series, but I'm not sure that it will. The author created a great world within a world which kept me hooked. I like that it starts out with Amy standing in line for her favorite book that was just released because I definitely related to that! Amy was so in love with the character of Alexander Banks that when he came to life she couldn't believe it. I am a sucker for a happy ending so I love how it ended. Alexander ends up staying with Amy while his cousin James and his vampire girlfriend return back to the Otherworld when Vigo is killed. Vigo killed Alexander's family and he swore that he would kill him. This is a must read. At first I didn't think it would be good, but it surprised me big time. I would give it 4 stars. Has anyone read this book?

I can't believe that I found these three books for only $1.00 each! I was so happy. This is also in my pile for to-read books. Hope to have finished them before Christmas break is over. These books look and sound like they're good from what I read in the blurbs! So can't wait to get started. Happy Reading!

I have just purchased these two books from a book fair the other day. I am going to start reading them very soon! After I read them I will let you know what I thought of them. Has anyone read these books? I love paranormal romance books but decided to give these a try. Hope they're good.

Truly, Madly, Deeply is a title that describes this book perfectly. This book is great. I like that the characters have history and that they re-enter each other's lives as adults. Erica has never really stopped thinking about Dustin and their bad experience when they were younger, and neither has he. He wants a chance to prove to her that he can be good in bed. The characters have so much chemistry and has some humorous moments that made me laugh. This was a book that I couldn't put down until I read it all!! Dustin came to find her to ask her to be apart of his family business with her advice column. If you haven't read you should! If you have, what did you think about it???

Currently reading Lawe's Justice, I'm almost finished. I'm loving the story line. It's interesting how the point of view switch from Diane to Gideon because they both have different motive's but the same goal. Lawe and Diane have so much chemistry and although they have a physical attraction I love how Diane can still be her own person, no matter what he says. Can't wait to finish this book!!!

This book was GREAT! The first page hooked me. This book is very steamy.... the plot was great. I fell in love with all of the characters, the author gives you insight to what is going on in each of the character's minds. I love how each character has their own story, how good the series is, and how many books there are to read. Can't wait to read them all!!!!
