The Book Worm Chronicles

A look into the world of Bookworms

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.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling

indexOverall rating: 5/5

As any Potterhead will tell you, getting your hands on a new Harry Potter is like Christmas morning. It’s better than Christmas morning because you can reread it whenever you want. I ignored homework to read this book and had to hide it at times to make sure I actually got my work done.

Nineteen years after the final epilogue in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is where The Cursed Child picks up, mainly following Harry Potter’s son, Albus. Fans are given little tidbits into what’s happened during this time, including marriages, deaths, jobs, children and how students at Hogwarts learned about the war and those involved.

Broken by Kelley Armstrong

6914102Overall rating: 4/5

Book 6 in the Women of the Otherworld series brings us back to Elena, in one of my favourite of the books. When I first started to read this series, I originally only bought the books that had Elena in them. It wasn’t until later that I realized they were a part of the series, and then I set out to buy all the books.

During a pregnancy that has her on edge, Elena Michaels, is eager for a distraction. This distraction comes from a weird source, but Elena jumps at the chance after the source gives them a lead to a problem mutt that the Pack couldn’t find.
