The Book Worm Chronicles

A look into the world of Bookworms

Living with the Dead by Kelley Armstrong

6381724Overall rating: 3/5

This book was a little different than other books in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series, but I did enjoy it quite a bit. Instead of being in the first person of a supernatural woman, this book changed perspectives with each chapter and Hope Adams was the only character we had met previously who had chapters.

Robyn Peltier, a PR rep and a very human friend of Hope trying to deal with the death of her husband, is the focus of this book. When her client is killed by a girl named Adele Morrisey, a clairvoyant attempting to escape a commune for this supernatural race, Robyn is brought into the supernatural world with a deadly mark on her head.

Sins of the Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Overall rating: 3/5

While I love Danger as a character, her book was a forgettable one for me and I had completely forgot the plottwist at the end. This book introduced even more Dark Hunters I’m eager to read about, but I was kinda glad when I finished this book for the second time.

When a uprising occurs among the Dark Hunters located in Mississipi, Acheron sends in the Alexion to judge which Hunters can and cannot be saved. He stays with the Hunter who asked for his help, Dangereuse St. Richard, as she questioned the uprising when she was approached by another Hunter, Kyros, determined to attack Acheron, and didn’t believe him when he claimed that Acheron was a Daimon sending the Hunters against his own kind.

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Scarlet_(Official_Book_Cover)_by_Marissa_MeyerOverall rating: 4/5

I was very excited to start readin this book, because I love when fairy tales are reimagined and I really enjoyed Cinder. Scarlet did not disappoint, and introduced one of my favourite aspects to any supernatural series: werewolves.

After being arrested for being the escaped Princess Selen from Luna, Linh Cinder escapes and looks for answers. With the help of fellow prisoner, Carswell Thorne, Cinder searches for Michelle Benoit, a former pilot who helped Cinder escape Luna, who has been kidnapped by the loyal subjects of the Luna Queen.

Personal Demon by Kelley Armstrong

414HFXkeKLL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_Overall rating: 4/5

While this has been my (final) exam season of my undergrad, I took breaks to read and managed to finish two books! This one was particularly interesting to me, because I had never read Hope Adams’ story before. She had popped up in other books I’ve read from the series, but I’d never read a book that focused on her primarily.

Hope is an Expisco half-demon, which means she can detect chaos and have visions of chaos, and works for a trashy newspaper. She works for the interracial council, and has a debt with the Cabal Cortex. The head of the Cortez Cabal, Benicio, reaches out to Hope to pay her debt: he wants her to infiltrate a Maimi supernatural gang, find out what they are saying about the Cabal, and her debt is paid.

Seize the Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon

6590035.jpgOverall rating: 3/5

Another book down in the Dark Hunter series, this one following Tabitha Devereaux and Valerius Magnus, and brought back an old nemesis of Tabitha’s sister, Amanda Hunter, and her husband and former Dark Hunter, Kyrian. The unlikely pair, and not just because Kyrian hates Valerius, join forces to fight Daimons in New Orleans, and fall in love in the process.

The Spathi Daimons run a muck throughout this book, and a couple of characters die as a result. The readers find out some important information about Ash, which very few characters know, and Artemis was kinda nice.  Kinda.

No Humans Involved by Kelley Armstrong

indexOverall rating: 3/5

Onto another book in the Women of the Otherworld series I have read before, and the end is in site! I’ve been debating on what to read once I’ve finished this series, and would love to hear from you on what you want to see reviewed!

While filming a television special meant to propel her dream of having her own show, necromancer, Jamie Vegas, stumbles onto ghosts who cannot contact her. Unlike ghosts she has met in the past, even after she attempts to reach them numerous times, these ghosts are only able to poke and prod at Jamie.

Night Play by Sherrilyn Kenyon

nightOverall rating: 4/5

Back at it again with Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series, and onto my favourite one (so far). Night Play follows Bride McTierney, a New Orleans native and friend of Tabitha Devereaux, after the break up of a pretty bad relationship to when she crosses paths with a were-hunter by the name of Vane Kattalakis. While Vane is not a dark hunter, and Bride is just a human, both of their stories have woven through previous books, and the pair pop up later on in the series.

Beauty and the Beast: Movie Review

Overall review: 4/5

When I first heard that Beauty and the Beast was being remade: I squealed like a little girl and marked the day on my calendar. I’m sure it comes as no shock that the Disney princess who was also a bookworm was one of my favourites, and I was eager to see what a life action would do to the tale as old as time.
