Gwen Hayes: Falling Under

Gwen Hayes: Falling Under (Falling Under, #1)

Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, Theia knows she's seen Haden before- not around town, but in her dreams.

As the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her closer one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is stronger than her fear.

And when she discovers what Haden truly is, Theia's not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul.


I've read a lot of bad reviews about this book and most of them I understand. I understand why people don't like this book, 'cos there are lot of clichees. The characters are sometimes so stupid and naive that you hope that you could smack them in the head. But I liked the book. It was sometimes stupid, yes, and were lot of things that made you angry. And it wasn't ever nearly realistic. But this is a book. It's allowed to non-realistic.
Sometimes the writing was just bad, but I liked the story. There were lot of details that were stupid, but the idea behind the book was nice and I liked it. I'm not really picky and there aren't lot of books that I don't like. And I absolutely love there "doomed" love stories and bad boys. ♥ And there were lot of moments when I hoped that I could draw. There amazing scenes that I imagined in my head, they would be lovely fanart. If only I could draw.

And I absolutely love the cover. Black roses ♥

Richelle Mead: Gameboard of Gods

Richelle Mead: Gameboard of Gods (Age of X, #1)

In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists, Justin March lives in exile after failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims. But Justin is given a second chance when Mae Koskinen comes to bring him back to the Republic of United North America (RUNA). Raised in an aristocratic caste, Mae is now a member of the military’s most elite and terrifying tier, a soldier with enhanced reflexes and skills.

When Justin and Mae are assigned to work together to solve a string of ritualistic murders, they soon realize that their discoveries have exposed them to terrible danger. As their investigation races forward, unknown enemies and powers greater than they can imagine are gathering in the shadows, ready to reclaim the world in which humans are merely game pieces on their board. 


I have read every book Richelle Mead is published and I've loved every single one. She is amazing writer and I can't wait to read her next book. I'm not usually big fan of dystopian books, even if I've read few of them and even liked them. Somehow I always have my reservation about this genre.

LOVED IT! Amazing! She did it again. Perfect combination of dystopian world, scifi, mystery, mythology and romance. This was bit different than her other books, but I loved it as much as all the other books. Can't wait to read next book! ♥

“We're pieces on a gameboard, Dr. March, and some of us are more powerful than others. You. Me. Her. We're the ones the gods want. We're the ones they're fighting over.” 

Aimee Carter: The Goddess Test

Aimee Carter: The Goddess Test (Goddess Test, #1)

 It's always been just Kate and her mom - and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld - and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy - until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.

"You will have power beyond imagining, and you will never fear death again. You will never grow old, and you will always be beautiful. You will have eternal life to spend as you wish."

First I thought that the book was kind of stupid. Or that Kate was stupid. And maybe a little cliché. There was this girl whose mother was dying of cancer and she wanted to see her hometown for the last time. Ok, it was sad, but still.. couldn't there be anything more original? Then there is this "evil popular girl" who does some prank and dies and Kate agrees to do "anything" to save her, so Henry saves her life. Who does that? I wouldn't. She was a total stranger to Kate. And a mean girl..
Ok, well. Next thing is the Persephone myth. I think it's odd that Kate is willing do accept without questions that Henry brought Ava back to life and that she made a deal with Henry. Like those myth and everything is normal life. But after that she can't accept that Henry is really a god and it's all real.

But when I read further, I really began to like to book. Or love the book. I think that this is my new favourite series. Or one of them. I'm definally reading the next book strait away.
