Book Review: White Cat by Holly Black

White Cat (Curse Workers, #1)


Published May 11, 2010

“The easiest lies to tell are the ones you want to be true.”

Synopsis:White Cat (Curse Workers, #1)

Cassel comes from a family of Curse Workers - people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they're all criminals. Many become mobsters and con artists. But not Cassel. He hasn't got magic, so he's an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family. You just have to ignore one small detail - he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago.

Cassel has carefully built up a facade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his facade starts to crumble when he finds himself sleepwalking, propelled into the night by terrifying dreams about a white cat that wants to tell him something. He's noticing other disturbing things too, including the strange behavior of his two brothers. They are keeping secrets from him. As Cassel begins to suspect he's part of a huge con game, he must unravel his past and his memories. To find out the truth, Cassel will have to out-con the conmen

White Cat (Curse Workers, #1)

 My Rating: 5 of 5 stars false 
(5 bomb-diggity stars!)

I really, really, really like this book.Tis AMAZING! For starters it is completely original and engrossing. From the very beginning  I felt pulled into this world. The pacing is perfect for the piece-by-piece style Holly Black uses. As the story progresses you keep learning more and more until finally all the pieces come together. Holly Black has a gift for unveiling details in a way that gives you just enough to keep going, but never enough to remove your uncertainty. This woman knows how to build suspense and keep it. She hooks you and keeps your eyes glued to every single word.

I like that this book doesn’t have those summary explanations that can sometimes feel out of place. Things are explained in a realistic manner. It is easy to believe that the narrator is taking the time to think about these things and what you are reading is not just thrown in there for your benefit. Trust me, nothing is ever just thrown at you.

I like that the narrator is a guy. Holly Black really manages to capture his voice. Like all the characters in this novel, Cassel is complicated. Things are not easy for him or for those around him. Trust is not something you can give out on a whim. All of the characters are carefully crafted and realistically complex.

White Cat is not one of those happy-go-lucky novels. It is not afraid to go to a dark place and that for me made it a great read. Things are more realistic this way. I couldn’t escape the pull of the words. I read them and was hooked.

Overall, I consider this a must read. It is original, exciting, and wonderfully written.

I am so happy I decided to read it!

In conclusion, I absolutely MUST READ THE SEQUEL!!!!

Red Glove, here I come!

Red Glove was published April 5th 2011. Good, because I would not want to wait for it to come out! I need it stat.

Note: I know this review has been a cover fest, but it’s just that these books have the best covers ever! They are to die for! I want to collect them all!

Book Review: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and Bone

Publication date: 6/5/2012

Synopsis from Goodreads

Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha…and the secrets of her heart.

About the Author (from Goodreads):

Leigh Bardugo was born in Jerusalem, raised in Los Angeles, and graduated from Yale University. These days, she hides out in Hollywood and indulges her fondness for glamour, ghouls, and costuming in her other life as makeup artist L.B. Benson.

Her debut novel, Shadow & Bone (Holt Children's/Macmillan) is now a New York Times Best Seller.

She would be delighted if you followed her on Twitter, elated if you visited her web site, and downright giddy if you liked Shadow & Bone on Facebook.

My Rating of Shadow and Bone: 5.0 of 5 stars 
(Translation: This book is so effing awesome it makes me sqee!)


I remember browsing Goodreads and stumbling upon Veronica Roth’s review of Shadow and Bone. Immediately, I knew I had to get my paws on this book. It sounded original, which it is, it sounded exciting, which it is, and it sounded AMAZING, which it is!

Leigh Bardugo shines in her ability to weave an intricate and unique story. Time and time again I was left feeling breathless as I was struck by the beauty and effectiveness of her writing. Due to the uniqueness of the story, I felt like every page was portal taking me deeper and deeper into an unknown and utterly fascinating world. The characters are well developed and believable. The progression of the plot is smooth and engrossing. The love story develops naturally and realistically. Everything comes together wonderfully and effectively. Shadow and Bone  is one of those books that never really makes it to my shelf because I like to have it near for when I get the urge to reread it. I am eagerly awaiting the next book. I have no trouble believing that Leigh Bardugo will deliver an outstanding, fantastic, and mind-blowing sequel. I’m getting the tingles just thinking about it!Photobucket

At this point in my review, I would like to point out that I have maintained my composure long enough and will now proceed to the fangirling portion of the review. I appreciate your understanding.

descriptionI effing love this book! eff yea!

Happy dance!

If this book were a fieldtrip, it would be a trip to Disneyland, no DisneyWORLD.

If it were a smell, it would be the new car smell, better yet, it would be the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls (hmmm).

If it were an element it would be helium.

If it were a dessert, it would be a chocolate molten lava cake with ice cream and whip cream on top.

If it were a guy, I’d hit that.



I cannot effing wait for the next installment in this series!

Siege and Storm (The Grisha #2) 
Expected publication: 2013image

I think you should go read this book, the sooner the better…now’s good…what are you still doing here?! go read it! …still here!? go!…don’t look at me like that, just go! …I should probably stop typing…did it work?…hello? anyone there? Where did everyone go?!

Music to My Books: “Bookish Music Monday” Post #5

“Bookish Music Monday” is a new, fun, weekly meme hosted by Parafantasy. To join, find a song that has lyrics or a music video that reminds you of a book or just share music that you like to listen to while you read!

The Song: “The Enemy” by Mumford and Sons

The Book: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

The Enemy was written for the the new Wuthering Heights film adaptation. I heard this song while watching the trailer and was immediately in love with it. It goes perfectly with Emily Bronte’s novel. Mumford and Sons perfectly captured the emotions evoked by Catherine and Heathcliff’s more than tumultuous relationship.

“Waiting On” Wednesday #7

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This “Waiting on Wednesday” post is about:

Reached (Matched #3) by Ally Condie
Release Date: November 13, 2012
Synopsis (if you haven’t read Matched and Crossed skip the synopsis. There be spoilers!):

Cassia faces the ultimate choices in the long-anticipated conclusion to the "New York Times" bestselling Matched Trilogy.
After leaving Society and desperately searching for the Rising--and each other--Cassia and Ky have found what they were looking for, but at the cost of losing each other yet again: Cassia has been assigned to work for the Rising from within Society, while Ky has been stationed outside its borders. But nothing is as predicted, and all too soon the veil lifts and things shift once again.
In this gripping conclusion to the #1 "New York Times" bestselling Matched Trilogy, Cassia will reconcile the difficulties of challenging a life too confining, seeking a freedom she never dreamed possible, and honoring a love she cannot live without.

My pick for this week does not cause me to abandon my tenuous grip on my sanity. That’s right folks! When it comes to Reached I am calm and normal and human-like. I want this book because I read the first two and I am curious as to how the whole thing will conclude. So far I think the Matched series is okay and even if this series doesn’t get me all flailly and shrieky, I hate not finishing a series. Besides, I still need Reached so that Curiosity doesn’t kill me.I believe there is a saying that goes perfectly with what I just said: “Curiosity is a cat that will kill you if you don’t feed it. Don’t get killed, feed your Curiosity.” I don’t want to get killed, so I must read Reached! … Wow! I feel accomplished! There is no trace of weirdness in this post! When it comes to being normal, I am a ninja!

To celebrate my success at being normal, I am going to slow dance on my neighbor’s yard! Winning!

Book Review: Pure (the second Covenant novel) by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Publication date: 4/3/2012

Synopsis from Goodreads :

There is need. And then there is Fate...

Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn’t exactly awesome—especially when Alexandria’s "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth’s in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom—so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do—and sacrifice—for her.

When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies—lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon... and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn’t blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude... or killing her.

When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

Read my review of Half-Blood (Covenant novel #1)

My Rating of Pure: So much AWESOME Sauce!

Well it is no secret that I freakin love Jennifer L. Armentrout. I seem to dedicate a great deal of my descriptionblogging-time to her. Through her books she has given me hours and hours of enjoyment so I think she deserves that and more. Jennifer L. Armentrout has a way of writing that is fun, exciting, and manages to pull you in. I turn to her books when my brain is in need of a trip into awesome-fun land.

After reading Half-Blood I knew there was a chance I was addicted to the Covenant series. I couldn’t wait to read the second book. Then I read it…Oh, Pure. I effing enjoyed every moment I spent reading you!! I LOVE you!!  Now there is no doubt in my mind, I am addicted to the Covenant series and if that is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

Pure started off great. Right of the bat I got sucked into the world I fell in love with in Half-Blood. We pick up where we left off. Alex is dealing with the events of the first book and things around her seem to be changing. The pacing of this novel is great. Things are immediately exciting and they stay that way. Throughout the entire novel just when you think things are settling down, bam! something exciting happens.

Everything in Pure is just plain AWESOME! The story and the characters continue to be well-developed. I really like that the characters all stayed true to themselves. Things change and they have to change, but they all stay true to the person they are at their core. Alex is still her funny, tough self. Aiden is delicious and perfect, so delicious and perfect, in fact, that it hurts. Seth, well, Seth is still Seth, though I think in this novel we learn that there is definitely more to this guy. Whatever may be going on with him, whatever he may be hiding is bound to make everything even more exciting. All the other characters stayed true to their personalities. I especially love Caleb in this one. He really shines. Caleb is an example of a true friend and I am glad we really get to see that side of him.

The ending of Pure was just faint-worthy. Everything just changes. Trust me. Things. Get. Serious. I don’t know how else to phrase it. I am shocked, and excited, and nervous, and just plain unsettled. I am currently running around my room, arms flailing. Damn you, Jennifer L. Armentrout, you’ve done it again! I am hooked and invested! I bet she is sitting in her headquarters just indulgently rubbing her hands together as she smiles proudly. She knows what she does to us! She knows!

DeityAfter reading Pure, I can assure you, I require more! I need to know what happens next. I fear I might explode. Fortunately, I just Cursedhave to make it to November 6th. Then I will have my hands on Deity. Wish me luck!! For now I guess I will have to turn to JLA’s Cursed. Hopefully reading that will help keep the twitches under control. And you see, that is just the type of Author JLA is. She is always there when you need her.




Note to Aiden, sweet, wonderful, sexy, perfect Aiden: image

That’s right, I EFFING LOVE you!!!

Music to My Books: A “Bookish Music Monday Post” #4

“Bookish Music Monday” is a new, fun, weekly meme hosted by Parafantasy. To join, find a song that has lyrics or a music video that reminds you of a book or just share music that you like to listen to while you read!

Today I don’t have a song, I have music:  “Mercury” by… well I’m not sure who composed this wonderful piece of music. I have searched online and I get different results. Whoever is responsible for it is without a doubt a musical genius! You probably recognize “Mercury” as the music from The Hunger Games teaser trailer. That is how I first discovered it. I was immediately blown away by its awesomeness. I love it and I listen to it all the time while I am reading. However, for me, it is inextricably connected to The Hunger Games—the book not the movie. I think it accurately and beautifully conveys the proper emotions. It is exciting, emotional, and heart-stopping—not literally so don’t be afraid to listen to it. For me “Mercury” conjures up what I felt and still feel while reading The Hunger Games,

Steamy Thursday: Blast from the Past Edition!


“Steamy Thursday” has become my weekly tradition. I use it to express my passion for books—usually in a “creatively” strange and creepy manner. I have done Bookish-Porn photo shoots (yes, I show pictures of books without their dust jackets!) and I have included excerpts from my original work of fiction titled Fifty-One Hues of Mauve, which is bookish-erotica and contains scenes of book-launching. All in all, “Steamy Thursday” is basically do-what-you-want-to-express-your-passion-for-books-or-have-fun-with-bookish-humor. I like it because it is an opportunity to be creative and silly…and yes sometimes I just feel a need to be creepy.

Previous “Steamy Thursday” posts include:

An Excerpt from My Original Work of Fiction “Fifty-One Hues of Mauve”

Book Chicka Wow Wow: A Bookish Porn Adventure

Book Chicka Wow Wow: A Bookish Porn Adventure Part II

This week’s post is something really special! In fact it is so special I am tearing up!

Confession. Fifty-One Hues of Mauve is not my first venture into fiction writing. In 2010 my cousin and I decided we would start a blog. In this blog we would share our creative genius. We would both contribute whatever piece of writing we completed. Unfortunately, we didn’t really follow through. However, before we abandoned our blog—which was called HOPELESS AND ROMANTIC PRESENT: Tales from the Gutter-Minded:Stories of Awe in which I adopted the surname of Hopeless and my cousin became Romantic (hmm, the present part of the title sounds familiar…)—we produced some great short works of literature. Two to be exact, well three if you include a poem I will not admit having written. Out of the two short stories we posted, I wrote the first one and my cousin and I collaborated on the second one. Today I want to share with you the short story I produced during that time. I think you will notice the similarities to my more recent works of fiction, though the story feature bellow is a bit more romantically-inclined. Note: I wrote this story as a tribute to my cousin and the young man she was infatuated with at the time of the completion of this story. What can I say, I am just that sweet and romantic!

The following is the unedited story complete with its original introduction:

Friday, September 24, 2010

Before we begin...

What will follow are stories of our creation. We each have a distinct style and a distinct taste. However, what we wish to share with you are stories that expand beyond those trivialities and sink deep into the soul. The first tale is one about young love of the purest of sorts. I warn you, the tale is touching and emotional. As a writer the task of portraying such wonderful and deep love is difficult, but hopefully that task has been completed successfully. Enjoy!

Gust of Love

-by HoPeLeSs

Part 1: How Ana found true love

We begin our tale in Los Angeles, the land of magic and wonders. It is there in her home, that Ana first finds her true love.

Ana was a lonely teenage girl of only twenty-three, who had fallen in love with her brother's best friend, Calvin. Calvin was just what Ana wanted in a guy. His sweet face reflected his pimply youth and his eyes, oh his eyes! How they were always red and his pupils dilated behind his purple framed glasses! Yes, Calvin was a total dream and he would have made a great catch. Ana was madly in need of his touch, but alas they could not be for Calvin was her brother's bosom buddy and Ana was a girl who had no time for love. Ana had spent the better part of her teenage years focusing on her music, through determination she had managed to master the trombone. But her heart ached! Ana needed Calvin and though she longed to smell his breath, she contained her love. She was a 2-litter bottle of cola waiting to explode with sticky passion all over Calvin. And so Ana lived in secret love, until one day fate intervened and Ana walked into the room where Calvin stood, alone, waiting for her brother. Ana knew that her family would not be home until much later and she found herself unable to resist the opportunity of being alone with Calvin, so it was then that Ana let her bottle of passion pop…

And so it went that Ana ran into the room, she stopped, Calvin was standing in there in all of his glory. She rushed to his side and tenderly touched his cheek. He turned his head and looked her straight in the eyes. They stood just like that for several moments. Ana felt as if Calvin was looking straight into her soul, she was so moved that she fought the urge to soil herself.

Her hands began to quiver as she leaned towards him with her lips puckered and stomach fluttering, Calvin extended a finger and placed on her lips. Ana became nervous and immediately stopped moving towards him although her innards were burning and yearning for Calvin. He looked at her with a most wonderful expression.

“Wait,” he whispered.

Ana managed to contain her passion, but she felt that the force of her love would make her explode in her pants. Calvin did not move his gaze from her face. His eyes were bright. As he looked at her he made a straining expression, it happened!


A noise like a volcano erupting from his ass shook the entire room. In a matter of seconds the room filled with his inner stench. Ana could not believe it! Never before in her life had she felt such potent emotions. The emotion she had felt only moments before paled in comparison. It was as if Calvin’s giant fart had release her from a love prison. She breathed deeply, very very deeply.

“awwww,” she said and smiled.

Their connection was undeniable. Unfortunately, their moment was cut short when a tap came at the door. It was Ana’s brother who had come home early to meet Calvin. As Calvin walked towards Ana’s brother smiling and without saying a word, Ana could still feel the electricity between them flowing like a river down a rocky mountain on a cold winter’s day in the middle of July.

The next day, Ana was electrified, she could not take her mind off the moments she had shared with Calvin only the day before. Never before had she experienced such sensory ecstasy. Ana was in a complete trance. How strong an emotion Calvin must feel! He had let a part of his bowels enter her body! All day Ana had been eating refried beans in hope of being able to return the favor. She would see Calvin again and this time she would be an active part of their spiritual love making. Little did she know that their love would first have to survive the tests of trueness and devotion.


Hope you enjoyed it. This post really takes me back to those good ol’ days. Ah, to be young again!

“Waiting On” Wednesday #6

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This “Waiting on Wednesday” post is about:

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices 3) by Cassandra Clare

Release Date: March 19, 2013

Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices Series #3)


Danger intensifies for the Shadowhunters as the New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy comes to a close.

If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it?
The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose.

Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment.

Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy

I wasn’t going to post about this book today, but my obsessive need for it is so great I must talk about it constantly. My psychiatrist calls it a repetition compulsion or some psychobabble like that. But what can I do, I NEED to know what happens!!! Waiting for this book is torture. Every morning, I wake up, walk outside, throw myself on the ground, and roll around wailing (Note: this is a great way to get to know the neighbors!). I freaking LOVED the first two books, but Clockwork Prince left me in a dark place…heads were shaved, plates were smashed, and pillows were stabbed…dark, dark time for me…I don’t want to talk about it…
Clockwork Princess will either be my salvation or my destruction. Anyone who has made it to the end of Clockwork Prince knows the predicament I currently find myself in. So much depends on this book! Oh for the love of Will, I cant take this, I must tantrum!

Note: You may read about a Cassandra Clare’s book signing I attended HERE. There are videos. I’d watch the last one if I were you! Unfortunately, at said book signing, dearest Cassie only made matters worse when she mentioned some sort of steamy dungeon scene in Clockwork Princess.

What book(s) are you throwing tantrums for?

Please link your WoW, I want to see what you are waiting for!

This is my second week of class and I’m still settling so my replying abilities aren’t lightning fast, but if you leave a comment I will reply ASAP and I will visit your blog, and if you follow, I will follow you back. That is my promise!

Thank your for stopping by and seriously leave your link, comment, tell me about your day, share a joke, ask for advice, anything, I really need distractions from all these assignments!

Music to My Books: “Bookish Music Monday” Post #3

“Bookish Music Monday” is a fun, weekly meme hosted by Parafantasy. To join, find a song that has lyrics or a music video that reminds you of a book or just share music that you like to listen to while you read!

Today I would like to share the song Run by Snow Patrol.

This song is awesome. I listen to it constantly and it is perfect accompaniment for many of my favorite books. But it most perfectly fits the ending of Lauren Oliver’s Delirium. Thinking about Delirium and this song brings tears to my eyes. They are a seems-like-they-were-made-for-each-other perfect combination This song captures the emotions of the ending of the book.Those who have read Delirium know title of that the this song, its lyrics, and its tone make it perfect for the last scene. Seriously, did I mention the the title??!!! Too perfect!


A beautiful song that reminds me of a beautiful book.


Check out my review of Delirium here.






Lyrics from azlyrics:


I'll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
You've been the only thing that's right
In all I've done
And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we'll make it anywhere
Away from here
Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear
Louder louder
And we'll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can't raise your voice to say
To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbye
I nearly do
Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear
Louder louder
And we'll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can't raise your voice to say
Slower slower
We don't have time for that
All I want's to find an easy way
To get out of our little heads
Have heart, my dear
We're bound to be afraid
Even if it's just for a few days
Making up for all this mess
Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear
