And a Very Small Man Can Cast a Very Large Shadow.

Games of Thrones is finally on tonight on HBO, and I can honestly say I was happy dancing all day today. The first season was amazing, each episode exciting and fresh, and filled with twists. Everyone should watch it, it's on tonight HBO at nine!

Kids Choice!

No cameras are allow inside, as always for us, so I wasn't able to get any pictures of the inside. Once the show ended my friends and I scurried on out to our car, retrieved our cameras and ran back to the entrance and across the street so we could catch some of the actors coming out. It was a great night, too lazy to for details right now. Here are a couple pictures!

Book Review: Sacrificial Magic (Downside Ghosts #4), Stacia Kane

I finished reading Sacrificial Magic this morning after days and days, of excitement. Again, I won't reveal any spoilers. In this book, Chess Putnam is still working with the Church, and in fact it opens up while she is at a job. I really liked that right off the bat many things happen, it started off debunking, and of course, we get to see Terrible too.

Chess's relationship with Terrbile is further explored in this fourth book, much more depth to the strands that bind them. There is also a very heartbreaking scene caused a bit by Chess's drug addiction, we see her very vulnerable and small, which also sheds a brighter light into her drug use. We can very much see how that is affecting her life with Terrible, and though I want her to suceed, Chess has to learn fom her mistakes. Her realtionship with Terrbile develops both emotionally, and ahem, sexually. But Chess is fearful of what they have, she's afraid to be loved, because as we all know her life has been one of a girl abused and used, it only makes sense for her to see herself worthless of love. And these are the things that hinder their relationship.

Of course Lex appears in this book as well. He does cause some trouble between Terible and Chess among Chess's drug abuse, and self loathing. He makes me smile, everytime he pops in, it's just his carelessness, but we know there is something else under that facade of cool.

There are some new characters in this book that we might see in the next book, and I'm very exicted about but I won't say who, it will give away part of the twists. Speaking of twists, there is a twist, one that I welcome with open arms because it will cause trouble in the next book. It's at the very end and things are changing so I just can't wait for it to come to play in the next book.

I realy loved this book! We can see what goes on in the mind of Chess which is very thrilling and enligtening at the same time. It was fast paced, emotional, and exciting. I give this book four and a half stars! Some good news is that in June the next one will come out, not to far away!

Book Reviews: The Kingdom

Last night, or this morning as I should say, I finished reading the second book in The Graveyard Queen Series by Amanda Stevens. I don't want to give in an details away because I'm afraid of giving away spoilers, though I desperately want to tell you what I thought about everything, but I'll restrain myself and be vague.

I really loved the first book in the series because as I read it in the stillness of the night, I was spooked. Every little noise I heard, made me jump, made me sweat because that book was just so eerily creepy. So when I bought the second book I'd expected it to be lesser in comparison as is many sequels, but this book did not disappoint. I admit, this was a tad less scarier than the first, but nonetheless still very creepy. I really enjoyed the mystery aspect of it. It was easier to figure out 'who done it', but I was still asking myself throughout who was a participant of the whole scheme. 

The city itself in which the story took place, was part of the whole mystery, it was scary and I could imagine how perfectly isolated it was. The characters were brightly dark, and there was one character in particular that I loved. Thane Asher, the charming, a bit of the trust fund kid but not thoroughly so, was so lovable in my eyes. I think I liked him more than Devlin, and I love Devlin.

Many questions were answered in this installment, and some things start to make sense with Amelia and her papa. I liked how the relationship grew between them, since in the last book they were distant.

Overall, I absolutely loved this book! There was mystery, there was a bit of romance, and it creeped the hell out of me which is something that I love in a book. Everyone should buy this book, it may even work as a stand alone book, but honestly read the first one before. So yes out of five stars I give it a four and a half!

There are actually quite a few books coming out tomorrow that I read, it tends to be the spring when most books come out, which is quite overwhelming. I want to real all of them, and it's kind of like picking your favorite child when you decide which of all you want to read first. So here they are from those that I remember.

Coming out March 27!
Sacrificial Magic, Stacia Kane
The Kingdom, Amanda Stevens
Lover Reborn, J.R Ward

When you have time to waste, shop!

Today I was let out early from one of my classes (located in a movie theater) giving me time to waste before my next class, so I decided to go to the record store across the street for a couple of minutes. It is an amazing place where there are a lot of quirky stuff to look at, I was on a budget looking for some bang for my buck so I bought some cut stuff even if I was tempted to buy those more expensive things. So here you go.

And this suspicious looking book, no author name, no tittle, just a story.
