Loved by Kristin and PC Cast

Hello my fellow bloggers and/or readers,

Finally back with another review and today I am going to be reviewing Loved: A House Of Night Other World novel by Kristin and PC Cast. Those of you who have read and loved the original series from the very beginning, know exactly how exciting it was to actually get a continuation series! There will be spoilers in this review, well, I consider them to be spoilers when it may in fact be stuff some of you already knew.

First, lets talk about the original series that we all fell in love with. I first started the House of Night books in 8th grade (middle school) and from the moment I started the first book I was instantly hooked. This was back when the only thing I would read was Vampyre books. Anyways, as I burned through book after book I was becoming more and more involved with the characters, I wasn’t just reading about a group of teen vampyres battling an evil High Priestess, I wasn’t just looking at words on a page, I was putting myself in the nerd herd and battling along side them. Isn’t that what reading is all about to begin with? Escaping reality and becoming apart of the story yourself.

Now, onto Loved 🙂 I can’t express how much I adored the start to this new adventure. Getting to read about these characters again was amazing and it truly felt like some sort of reunion! I hadn’t realized just how much I missed these characters until that moment when everyone comes back to the House of Night for a meeting about what all might be happening. They were all coming together again and I honestly started to cry, it was a beautiful moment.

As the story progressed and you found out exactly what was happening and where the story was leading your mind just kind of explodes. It is truly not what I was expecting but I’m definitely interested to see how this progresses and what happens in the next book which is to be released in 2018!

The second book in the series titled Lost definitely seems like it will frustrate me just by reading the synopsis. BUT, that doesn’t make me any less excited for it. I would like to say a big thank you to Kristin and PC Cast for continuing with the House of Night and bringing these characters back to us! The House of Night is the reason I started reading so much.

Here’s a photo I took for my Bookstagram account fro Loved.

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Woah! Long time no see you guys, I know I haven’t posted a blog post in literally forever but I am back and have 2 reviews for you. YAY! I recently read The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson and even though it took me forever to get into it I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. Once it gets to a certain point you just can’t put it down after that.

This book is about a girl named Andie who has everything planned out for her summer. She has a very important pre-med internship that is going to fill up her summer and kick start her career. Or maybe not. When a scandal involving her politician father erupts, dragging his career to the toilet it kind of dragged her internship along with it.

Now with no plans for the summer Andie has to find something to do to keep her busy and out of the house away from her father. Does dog walker look good on a college resume?

On Andies dog walking adventure she meets Clark and he changes her life more than she even realizes herself. Her one to two week relationships are definitely no more!

This book made me laugh, cry, shout at the pages in frustration and all of the emotions above! Once Clark came into the picture the book actually got better and better with each chapter. If you love cute contemporaries then I highly recommend this book as well as Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson! Her books capture the definition of typical realistic yet drool worthy relationships.

Sorry if the review wasn’t that great but I’m kind of half asleep right now. I’m hoping to get better at this as I go along. I also can’t type that well with fake nails on so that’s definitely not helping.

Happy reading!
