Airhead Trilogy Review

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Em was sure there couldn't be anything worse than being a brainiac the body of a teenaged supermodel.   

But it turned out she was wrong. Because that supermodel could turn out to have a mother who's gone mysteriously missing, a brother who's shown up on her doorstep demanding answers, a former best friend who's intent on destroying Stark Enterprises to avenge the death of his lost love, and a British heartthrob who's written a song about her that's topping the charts.
 How can Em balance all that with school, runway shows, and weekend jaunts to St. Johns - especially when she's got ex-boyfriends crawling out of the woodwork who want more than just a photo op; a sister who is headed to the high school cheerleading championships; a company she represents that seems to be turning to the dark side...
Not to mention trying to convince the love of her life that models aren't really airheads after all...especially one model in particular.
 But then, nobody said it was going to be easy being Nikki. 

The Airhead series by Meg Cabot, I have to admit, starts out a little weird in the first book. This series is sssoooo good though! Once I started reading the first book I got right into it and finished it fairly quickly. Then I had to wait for the next two books to come out and when they did I read them in no time! I got so attached to Em Watts who basically becomes Nikki. I love everything Meg Cabot has written, but this is definitely one of her best!


Passion Review

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Luce would die for Daniel.
And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way. . . .

Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last.
Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history. Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames... .forever.

 'Passion' is different from the last two books. In this one Luce knows more about her past and the secrets than she ever has in any of her lifetimes. Pretty much throughout the whole book she is going through her past, traveling by Announcers and unlocking the truth of her and Daniel's love, and tries to find the loophole to keep her from going up in flames in this lifetime..only it may not have been Luce that created this loophole after all.

I was kind of sad that in this one, there is less Luce and Daniel together, it's more Luce traveling through time and Daniel never catching up to her. The end is not quite what I expected (in a good way!). It seems like it's going to be predictable when you get near the end but then it veers off in a new direction. This book was just as good, if not better, than 'Torment'. I can't wait to see what happens to Luce and Daniel in the fourth and (pretty sure) last book 'Rapture', which is said to be coming out early 2012.

Torment Review

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥
That’s what it’s like for Luce to be apart from her fallen angel boyfriend, Daniel.
It took them an eternity to find one another, but now he has told her he must go away. Just long enough to hunt down the Outcasts—immortals who want to kill Luce. Daniel hides Luce at Shoreline, a school on the rocky California coast with unusually gifted students: Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans.

At Shoreline, Luce learns what the Shadows are, and how she can use them as windows to her previous lives. Yet the more Luce learns, the more she suspects that Daniel hasn’t told her everything. He’s hiding something—something dangerous.
What if Daniel’s version of the past isn’t actually true? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?

'Torment' picks up right where 'Fallen' left off, and things just keep going. In this one, so much more happens in it than the first one! I read it in about 3 days, every chance I got, I was glued to it, unlike the first one. Luce and Daniel's relationship gets pushed a little further and Luce finds out things she didn't in the first one. It also makes her question things she never even thought of before. More things become clear and it ties up a few loose ends from the first book, yet still leaves you wanting more. This is definitely one of my favorite novels.


Fallen Review

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Some Angels are Destined to Fall
There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.

 This series drew me in instantly. First I had noticed the cover and decided to see what it was about, and I ended up buying it. It's really slow throughout the whole book, until the last 2 or 3 chapters, then it gets really good...and ends. Total cliffhanger!! I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to finish it, since it didn't start out as interesting as the description made it seem to be, but at the end it was. After reading the end I seriously couldn't wait to get the second book! It starts out pretty normal, girl moves, starts a different school, girl sees boy, boy ignores girl, and so on. But then things get not-so-normal and Luce goes through this whole roller coaster and she starts to find out the secrets of her past.

What It's About!
Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything- including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?


At first I wasn't sure about reading this book, since it' all about werewolves, and it's always the same thing. Well not in this case! Andrea Cremer took the idea of werewolves and seemed to turn it into a whole new outtake of the meaning 'werewolf'. I absolutely LOVE this series so far! Calla has always been told her history and the way things have always been, and that's just how things are. Until Shay, a human boy, comes along and changes everything. Calla has known from a young age she was meant to marry Ren, the other Alpha, in which to create a new pack set by the keepers. Yet the more time Calla spends with Shay, the less likely it seems that this is even going to happen. Is anything from her past even true? Is this really how things are meant to be, or is Shay right? Calla sort of starts going through a transition throughout this book, trying to find herself and tries to see who she can really trust and who she can't. I was very surprised at how good this book really was, especially about halfway through when everything seems to pick up. It's totally worth the read! The next book in this series, is 'Wolfsbane', which just came out this month. I still have yet to read it!
