Passion



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.

Review!
This third book in the Fallen series by Lauren Kate was amazing!!! Luce is on a mission of the heart and she is looking into most of her past lives, with an unsuspected helper, Bill. He is what the Angels and Demons call a Scale and he is helping Luce with her mission.
I usually stay away from books that take place in the past, I don't like the past aspect. Its filled with words I don't understand and unfamiliar places. Instead of shying away from this book like I usually would, I embraced it. I absolutely loved it!!
Sure, it was all over the place as Luce and Daniel traveled. Then there was the figuring out the personalities of the other Lucinda's, but it was a really good book!

You see Luce evolve over her travels, shes still the stubborn Luce but with more consequence. She changes as she goes through the past, seeing herself die and die again. Then watching Daniels reactions of her deaths are heart-wrenching. Luce keeps traveling through the Announcers, growing and growing, till she goes 3D and then that's a surprise... But I'm gonna stop there till I give away more

There's Daniel, who is following Luce through the past and being a bit on the reckless side. He knows the consequences but those don't matter too much to him. He just wants her back in his arms, safe and sound. You see him remembering his past lives and feeling the pain all over again. He grows stronger though, and is remembering the places and things he forgot.

All in all the book was good! The way it was written was the right way to write a book like that. I give it 40 out of 51 tacos all in all!! Great job Lauren Kate!! Look out for the next book in the Fallen series Rapture coming soon!! Now off to read 5 books in the next 4 days before my flight to New York!!

Delirium


Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't. --from bn.com


I love this book. I know I'm going to end up saying that a lot, but it's true. This book is... Wow. Simply amazing.

It brings you into the dystopian world of Portland, Maine. Love is what the US government has claimed as wrong with the world, what has sent it into this awful stage. The deliria. Looking into this world it seems so awful, so... emotionless.
The characters are awesome, Lena an amazing MC. She's not that overly courageous girl, nor the rich one with everything. She's just a girl. She just seems average, someone who will follow in the footsteps that everyone before her has. Lena's stronger than that though. At least, she needs to be for the wild ride that you need to read.
Alex is... Hot. Or that's the way I envision him. He is one of the best male roles I have read in a while, and not because he has a bad boy persona, or that snarky cocky attitude. He's sweet and caring, everything you know you should want out of a guy, instead of the trouble makers that we always seem to be after. In a way, Alex could even give Jace Waylnd a run for his money. Not that I would ever compare them or anything.

All in all, this book was outstanding. I totally give this 49 out of 51 tacos, and I can't tell you why because it would be a major spoiler, as if I haven't hinted at some of them already. Now go off and read this wonderful novel why I go grab Lauren Oliver's other novel Before I Fall. Or maybe I could just read Harry Potter, since the last movie is coming out in exactly a month...

Angelfire


First there are nightmares.
Every night Ellie is haunted by terrifying dreams of monstrous creatures that are hunting her, killing her.
Then come the memories.
When Ellie meets Will, she feels on the verge of remembering something just beyond her grasp. His attention is intense and romantic, and Ellie feels like her soul has known him for centuries. On her seventeenth birthday, on a dark street at midnight, Will awakens Ellie's power, and she knows that she can fight the creatures that stalk her in the grim darkness. Only Will holds the key to Ellie's memories, whole lifetimes of them, and when she looks at him, she can no longer pretend anything was just a dream.
Now she must hunt.
Ellie has power that no one can match, and her role is to hunt and kill the reapers that prey on human souls. But in order to survive the dangerous and ancient battle of the angels and the Fallen, she must also hunt for the secrets of her past lives and truths that may be too frightening to remember. --from bn.com

I know, I know, I should've posted this a little sooner, but I enjoy my summer. While it's still here, that is.
I found Angelfire to be an odd yet delightful read. Normally I'm not a big paranormal reader, but I was told that this was awesome, and they were right. Ellie was really brave and head strong, although she did have her weak moments. She was learning everything right along with us, and those feelings of weakness made her feel more human, more like us. Will was... Awesome. The brave hot guys always are. He has the entire mysterious thing going on throughout the book, and I'm hoping in the sequel there's more of him. Not that we didn't see plenty in this one.  They did do some stupid stuff that I wouldn't have done, things always worked out in the end.
At least, I hope so.
The writing was good, the plot didn't drag... I liked it. There was a lot of fight scenes though, especially at the end. But that is totally expected when your heroine is an awesome demon killing... thing. If it were a movie I would give it 40 out of 51 tacos, which is hard to achieve.
I hope you have a fabulous summer, and until next time I hope you add this to your stack of books to read at the pool.
