Back when they were still strangers, TJ Carvalho witnessed the only moment in Vivi Flannigan’s life when she lost control entirely. Now, TJ can’t seem to erase that moment from his mind, no matter how hard he tries. Vivi doesn’t remember any of it, but she’s determined to leave it far behind. And she will.

But when Vivi returns home from her first year away at college, her big plans and TJ’s ambition to become a nurse land them both on the heart ward of a university hospital, facing them with a long and painful summer together – three months of glorified babysitting for Ángel, the problem patient on the hall. Sure, Ángel may be suffering from a life-threatening heart infection, but that doesn’t make him any less of a pain.

As it turns out, though, Ángel Solís has a thing or two to teach them about all those big plans, and the incredible moments when love gets in their way. 


A stunning, heartbreaking story about love, friendship, grief and hope.

I’m not sure I can find the word to describe the emotions that I was feeling, as I read this story. I was blown away . I think that this is a book that everyone should read. Trust me, when I tell you that FLIGHT SEASON is not a story that you will forget. I finished it last night and I still find myself thinking about the story, the characters. I had a feeling that I was going to love this book, I read DREAM THINGS TRUE back in 2015 and loved it. I should expected this. I guess I did not realize that I would end up falling in love with story. I laughed, I cried. I think that I went through the emotions that TJ, Vivi and Angel all went through. I felt connected all three of them. If I were asked which of three of them was my favorite, I don’t think that I would be able to pick because I loved all of them. It’s like asking to pick a favorite friend, there is not such thing as favorite. TJ, Vivi and Angel, by reading their stories I felt as if they became my friends.

I felt as if there was something, an attraction between TJ and Vivi, a minute that they met. I am not sure if TJ liked her too much at first, and I think it was because the first time he met her, she was messed up. I guess in a way he judged her a little because of how he acted, last time that he seen her. At least that the feeling that I got. However that didn’t seem to last long, especially once he started to spend more time with her, and Angel. Once he got to know her, it was not long before he became attracted to her. Even Angel saw it before he did. It was not long before I wanted them to end up together. I could see how much TJ cared about her, probably a way that no guy cared about her before. After what she went through, Vivi deserved her happily after. Both did. I loved reading the scenes between the two of them, most of time they had me smiling.

My favorite was the friendship that Angel, TJ and Vivi developed through book. That was one of things that surprised me. I think it was due to way that Angel acted to TJ and Vivi in beginning of the book. It was not long before the three of them were best friends. The most unexpected friendship. I wasn’t fond of Angel at start, I felt sorry for him but I did not care for his attitude. It was not long before he had me laughing. I thought what TJ and Vivi did for him towards the end was sweet. By the last couple chapters of the book, I was crying and it was good thing I was at home at that time. I couldn’t help myself. I love the birds facts, the bird illustrations in FLIGHT SEASON , and I feel that I learned more about birds that I knew prior to reading book. There is part of me that wants to learn more about birds after I read the book, and I just might.

FLIGHT SEASON might only 2nd book that I read by MARIE MARQUARDT and it won’t be last. I am already amazed by her, by her writing. Once I finished reading the book, I felt inspired to write. I have feeling that she will the author that I will read for years to come. She’s an author that is worth checking out. A writer whose stories will touch your heart.

A single choice can change everything.

Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications, and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic—one of opportunities and chances.

Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.

Now Lena isn’t looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened.

For what she let happen.

With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when she and her friends’ entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn’t even guaranteed? 


A heart breaking, haunting story.

I’m not sure how to begin to explain, what this book done to my feelings. There were so many thoughts, feelings going through me as I read IF THERE’S NO TOOMOROW from start to the end of the book. I had never been in Lena’s shoes and can’t even begin to imagine what she was going through. Lena’s emotions, thoughts were described in such detail, I pictured it all and went through all the emotions that she was feeling in that tough time. If I were me, I know that I would never be able to stop blaming myself, if I ever move past it. Her family, her friends and of course her best friend, Sebastian. It’s always important to have such great support system in such difficult time. You can’t help but love this book, despite how heart aching and hard it was to read at times. You will cry. IF THERE’S NO TOOMOROW starts at the scene after the accidient, the scene that will pull you into book right away, will have you turning pages. You will wonder what will happen, and how it lead up to that point. Once you start to turn the pages, you will turn them until you reach the last one. If I didn’t have work, I would read it faster than I have. It was a tough subject to read about, but an important one. I am sure that it’s a subject that few people can relate to. Either having been in same situation or have a friend who gone through same one.

Sebastian and Lena : I could see how much Lena cared about him, how much she loved him. She’s strong to be able to remain friends with him after he rejected her. I’m not sure if I be able to be so close to someone who I was in love with, but who didn’t love me back. I’m glad that she did, she needed him. Especially after her and Abby seemed to drift apart after the accident, well more like Abby distanced herself from Lena. I did not like how she did it, but understood why she did it. I’m happy that Sebastian was there, even when she pushed him away, he was there. He was always there. There were times, just the way he was always there and considering he sneaked at her window middle of night, if there was possibility that there was something else, that he cared about her more than he was telling her. I guess I wasn’t that surprised when the truth came out. It did come out at worst possible time, but then maybe not. They couldn’t grief their friends forever, they have move on at some point. Besides I am sure their friends would want them to be happy. I smiled when the two of them finally ended up together, even if it did take them a while to get there.

I have read multiple novels by JENNIFER L.ARMENTROUT through years. First being Lux Series . There hasn’t been a book of hers that I read that I didn’t love. However, I think that IF THERE’S NO TOOMOROW has to be my favorite. At least right now, that could always change later. Right now, I can’t seem to get this incredible story out of my head. I keep thinking about it. I have feeling that this is the story that will stay with me for years to come, a story that I will end up re-reading multiple time in future, at least that’s a feeling I get. A powerful, beautiful story about love, friendship and a choice that could change everything. I believe that IF THERE’S NO TOOMOROW is a book that everyone should read.

It will keep you on edge of your seat, and take your breath away. Be ready for an emotional ride that you won’t forget.

Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.

There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.

It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day. 


There a lot of things that I loved about this book. I finished it in one day, because I couldn’t force myself to put it down. I didn’t want to put it down. I was so drawn into A’s story that when I reached the end, I felt a bit sad that such beautiful story was ending. I don’t think there was anything about EVERY DAY that I didn’t love. I know for fact that EVERY DAY is a story that is going to stay with me for a long time, a story that I will return and re-read multiple times. I had been wanting to read EVERY DAY for a while and I been hearing a lot about it. Now that I read it, I can tell why a lot of people were talking about. It’s such beautiful, yet heartbreaking story that you cannot help but fall in love with. I fell in love within the first few pages, I kept on reading because I wanted to see what would happen next. But as I reached the end I felt as I was saying goodbye to friends.

Rhiannon, their relationship if you could call it that, was unlike any others. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to love someone who was a different person every day, even if she knew that it was A. I feel that it’s harder to be with someone, to love them if they are different person every day. In the end, it’s like Rhiannon said, that he always leaves. I can’t imagine going through that heartbreak every day. I can understand Rhiannon’s hesitation about being with him. I know that it was hard for her to come to that decision. I can understand it thought and I think that if I were her I might done the same, I wouldn’t be able to do it either. However, I was still heartbroken for both of them. I was hoping that there would be a way around it. I cried at that part, but then how could I not? Those two had a connection, that Rhiannon didn’t even have with Justin.

EVERY DAY is a 2nd book I read by DAVID LEVITHAN , the first one was that he wrote with one of my favorite authors JOHN GREEN . After reading EVERY DAY I can’t wait to see what other adventures he has in story for me next. A beautiful, remarkable love story. If I could give this book more than 5 stars, I would because it deserves so much more. I just hope that the movie will be as amazing. There is part of me that wonders what happens with Rhiannon and A next. I felt like the two of them became my friends and I can’t help but be curious what waits for them next.

Seventeen-year-old Abby Turner’s summer isn’t going the way she’d planned. She has a not-so-secret but definitely unrequited crush on her best friend, Cooper. She hasn’t been able to manage her mother’s growing issues with anxiety. And now she’s been rejected from an art show because her work “has no heart.” So when she gets another opportunity to show her paintings Abby isn’t going to take any chances.

Which is where the list comes in.

Abby gives herself one month to do ten things, ranging from face a fear (#3) to learn a stranger’s story (#5) to fall in love (#8). She knows that if she can complete the list she’ll become the kind of artist she’s always dreamed of being. But as the deadline approaches, Abby realizes that getting through the list isn’t as straightforward as it seems… and that maybe—just maybe—she can’t change her art if she isn’t first willing to change herself. 



Have you ever read that book, that seemed to mess with your emotions from start, to the end? Where you found yourself falling in love with characters and the story only after few pages? LOVE, LIFE AND THE LIST is that book for me. I already finished yet and I am still amazed by it, I can’t to seem to get the story out of my mind. I can’t help myself but wonder, What’s next for them? I am curious what happens with Abby and Cooper after, if they would remain together for a while. How can you not wonder? Especially after everything that both of them had to face, to get to the point where they are. That’s one of things that I loved about LOVE, LIFE AND THE LIST was their relationship wasn’t where they confessed their feelings and ended up together. Cooper and Abby’s relationship was more realistic. As you reader, you couldn’t help but wonder if Abby move past the crush she had on her best friend, and I could see that she tried to, with Elliott. Soon, it became clear that it was more than a crush. I don’t know how she managed to hold her feeling for as long as she had. I knew that Cooper cared about her, but I wasn’t sure if he felt about her, the way that Abby did about him. At least I wasn’t sure at first. All through the book, I couldn’t help but wonder what would happen, if anything. If Cooper would find out the truth about her feelings, and what would happen if he did. It was not long before two of them became my favorite characters.

Besides Abby and Cooper, I loved Lacey and Abby’s grandfather. Lacey, because of way she became such a great friend to Abby, especially with the whole mess with Cooper. Lacey was there, to help her without questions asked. I think it was a good thing that she met Lacey when she did. I hope that they two of them would stay friends for years to come. Abby’s grandfather, you can’t help but love him. There were multiple times through the novel where he had me laughing. I also loved how much he cared about his daughter, and how he attempted to help. Despite the fact that she refused to get help at first. I am just glad that she finally agreed that she needed help. I loved that it also dealt with art. I can’t draw or paint at all, but I love anything that has to do with art. I was as excited, as proud like everyone else when she got into that art program. That’s another thing that I am curious about. Yet, I know that she will be great.

A beautiful, memorable story about love, friendship, hope, fear and second chances. Out of all KASIE WEST books that I have read, this is my favorite. I can’t wait to see what adventure she will come up with next book.

Find the Holy Grail. Win the war. Save the world.

A lot has changed for Annika since being kidnapped by vampires to become a blood slave in their hidden kingdom of the Vale. Not only has she learned she’s a Nephilim—a race that’s supposedly extinct—but she’s found herself on a dangerous quest for the Holy Grail. Luckily, she has the vampire Prince Jacen by her side, and the two of them feel ready for anything—especially now that they trust each other more than ever.

But finding the Grail is only the beginning. Because when Annika learns that a demon is leading a pack of wolves to war against the vampires, she must stop him before it’s too late. If she can’t, he’ll open a Gate to Hell… and the world as she knows it will be lost forever. 


Is it over? I don’t want this series to come to an end. I know that the characters aren’t real, and yet I feel like I am saying goodbye to long time friends. I got to know Annika, Jacen, Noah, Karina. I felt as I went along on journey, faced their struggles along with them. To me, they were real. A part of me wanted to see how it would end, but there was another part of me that didn’t want reach that last page, knowing that I would have say goodbye. As I mentioned before, I have read few of MICHELLE MADOW novels and I love them all. However, Vampire Wish is unlike any of the other books that she written, and the story, I couldn’t help but fall in love with it. Each chapter, each book had me falling in love story more. That’s one of reasons I read it so fast. I couldn’t seem to be able to stop reading it once I started it. Vampire Wish is one of those series that you won’t be able to forget once you read it, A story that you will end up going back to, I know that I will be returning back to it at some point in the future.

Annika, an angel. I haven’t expected that. Then I haven’t expected an Angel and Vampire together, it’s not type of mix that I ever imagined would be together. However, Jacen and Annika are unique in their own way. The two of them have been through a lot together, and there almost always seemed something that kept on getting in a way, of them being together. Despite that, and what they had go through in order to get the Holy Grail, the two of them were always there for another, always trying to protect each other. I was glad that they finally could be together. I know that THE VAMPIRE WAR is the last book in Vampire Wish series, I can’t help but wonder what is to come for Annika and Jacen next. I know there is so much more they have to face. However I have feeling that as long as they have each other, they can overcome anything.

A beautiful, magical, breathtaking story. I don’t think I have words how much I love this series. MICHELLE MADOW such talented, inspiring writer. Anytime that I read any of books, I feel inspired. That wasn’t any different with Vampire Wish. I can’t wait to read Noah and Raven’s story in THE ANGEL TRIALS . I loved Noah in Vampire Wish and can’t wait what adventure awaits him next. I am not sure if I can wait until March 19 to see what happens. If you love vampires, wolves, angels. The Vampire Wish is a series that you need to pick now. You will be hooked instantly.

The vampire queen is dead.

Annika shouldn’t have been able to kill the vampire queen Laila—such a task can only be done by the Nephilim, whose race is extinct. But somehow, she did kill the queen. Now she’s the number one target on multiple hit lists, and she’s only alive because she’s a fugitive at the neutral kingdom of the Haven.

As if that weren’t enough to deal with, the world is in danger and she’s the one prophesied to save it. But she doesn’t have to do it alone. When fate brings her and Prince Jacen together again, they team up on a quest to find the only object that can save the world as they know it—the Holy Grail itself. 


THE VAMPIRE FATE , the fourth book in Vampire Wish . I didn’t think it was possible for the books to get any better, any more addictive. I should known by now. It keeps getting better as the series progresses. Just when you think it can’t get more addictive, MICHELLE MADOW finds a way to pull you back in. I love all her series, but I think that this one is one of my favorite series that she had written. I love the fact that it’s about Vampires, but not just that, I love how she put such unique twist to vampires in this series. I have read a few vampire series through the years, but none of them were anything like this one. As her other books in the end, there was another twist and I have a feeling that it cannot end well, not for Karina, not for Peter. Especially once he finds out the feelings that she has for Noah. I had feeling that there would be trouble when Fae asked Karina for her memories of Peter, in exchange of bringing back Peter from the dead. I had a bad feeling about it.

Annika, being a Nephilim when all of them supposed to be gone. That’s another unexpected twist. It does explain why Jacen couldn’t compel her when he just met her. I wonder if she slowly started to come into her powers then, without realizing it. Annika had been through so much, killing the Queen and then finding out what she was, I don’t know how she was able to handle it all. If I were in her situation, I would have a breakdown a long time ago. There only someone one person would be able to handle. Even Angel. I was happy that Jacen and Annika was finally be able to reunite and finally be together. I was hoping they would. After everything that the two of them went throught, it seemed as if something always seemed to get in a way. It made me happy that they could finally be with each other. I just hope that nothing gets in their way, to tear them apart.

Geneva, I had a like/dislike relationship with that character. There were times I liked her, but at times I felt that there was something off about her. Like Annika I wondered how she was getting that blood that Annika to keep her appearance. I guess I wasn’t too surprised to find that she kidnapped a Vampire Princess and two humans. What surprised me, was her and Laila. I did not see that coming, considering that she had agreed to help Annika get rid of the Queen. Once Annika killed her, I couldn’t figure out why all of sudden she became so cruel towards Annika. Now it all makes sense. Like Annika, I was in complete shock. Now that Laila is dead, I wonder what will happen with Geneva, if she will want to seek revenge. I am eager to see how all of this will come to an end. Yet, at the same time I don’t want to end.

Another astonishing addition to the Vampire Wish series.

In a kingdom full of secrets, no one can be trusted.

Annika’s life was flipped upside down when she was kidnapped by vampires to become a blood slave in their hidden kingdom of the Vale. Now, the powerful witch Geneva has disguised her as a vampire princess, and Annika’s living in the palace to compete for Prince Jacen’s hand in marriage. But her quest to become his bride is just a facade. Her real goal? Kill the vampire queen Laila so the kingdom crumbles and she can set the human blood slaves free.

When rebellious wolves attack the town, they leave a trail of vampire corpses in their wake, declaring war upon the Vale. But the wolves didn’t act alone. Someone on the inside is helping them, making everyone a suspect. And one major player won’t make it out alive 


Wow. I don’t even know what to think right now. There is a lot emotion that going through me at this moment. It was…intriguing.

I am aware by now that Vampire Wish series has twists. Even I did not see that ending coming, I feel like I am in shock, along with everyone else. When Laila gave her that stake after Annika told her what her plan was, it never entered my mind that she would actually kill her. I was sure it would be end of Annika, last what I or anyone else expected for her to succeed. There was a part of me, that re-read the sentence couple times as to make sure that I read it right. I was in shock. I found myself thinking about it for a while after I finished the book. I couldn’t help but wonder, What will happen now that she’s dead? What does Jacen think of all this? I knew that I had to pick up next book in series right away. I wanted to see what would happen with everyone else next, especially Annika.

I loved the first two book in Vampire Wish series, but out of books I read so far, THE VAMPIRE TRICK was my favorite one, at least so far. I think it has the most stunning, mysterious cover than the other two had. Just the cover, and the title will drawn you into the story right away. I have that feeling that each book pulls you more into a story, to the point where you must force yourself to pull away from the story. I couldn’t. 2 more chapters turned into me reading for five more hours. I was glad that I started this on Friday night so I could read longer. Before I even realized I had reached the end out and was picking up the next book in series. There are few vampire series in past that I fell in love with. I know that Vampire Wish made it to the list as one of my all time favorite series. It’s a series that I know I will end up re-reading multiple times in the future.

Now, I can’t help but wonder what will happen between Annika and Jacen. She lied to him, I understood why she did. I could see that he was hurt that she didn’t, once it was revealed who Princess Ana was. I do hope that the two of them will reunite and find a way to each other. Even before Jacen found out that Princess Ana was Annika, there was a connection there. The two of them had a special bond since the two of them met. I am eager to see what happens between the two of them next. I wish that I read this series earlier than I have. If you love books about Vampires, you should check out Vampire Wish , it’s unlike any vampire book you read before. You will be hooked.

Be ready for thrilling ride.

To destroy the enemy, she will become the enemy.

Everything has been taken from Annika — her family, her friends, and even her freedom — by the vampires who enslaved her in the hidden kingdom of The Vale. But now she possesses a magical ring that contains Geneva, the most powerful witch in the world, and she’s ready for revenge.

When Prince Jacen invites vampire princesses from all over the world to the palace to compete for his hand in marriage, Annika finds her chance. By commanding Geneva to turn her into a vampire princess, she can try to win the cold heart of the prince who betrayed her and left her for dead. Can she keep the emotions she used to feel for Jacen in check? Because if her deception works and she becomes his bride, she’ll have full access to the palace... and she can destroy The Vale from the inside.

But with powerful players vying for control of the ring, and a dark magic
rising outside the kingdom, there’s far more at stake than just the crown. 


By now you already aware that I love vampire books. I loved the first book in the series, THE VAMPIRE WISH and after that cliffhanger in the end, I couldn’t wait to pick up THE VAMPIRE PRINCE and I wasn’t disappointed, I think that the 2nd book in the series had me falling with characters even more. I couldn’t get enough of the characters, of the story. I feel as if I feel more connected with character after reading this one, especially Annika, she is my favorite character in the series. Annika is impossible to not love, she is fierce, determined and once she sets her mind on something, she won’t give up. Annika has been through a lot, but she keeps on going, she doesn’t give up. I think that she is one of the bravest characters in the book. She goes as far as to pose as vampire princess, in order to attempt to kill Queen Laila. That’s a dangerous mission, especially if she was discovered that she wasn’t a vampire princess but a human. Annika was risking a lot. I don’t know if I would have enough courage to go through what she did.

Out of all princess, I liked Princess Karina the most. I know that she came on completely different mission than others did, but I loved her determination. I know that her main reason for doing it was because she could get Geneva to bring Peter back. Her heart is going be broken all over again. I wonder what Prince Jacen would think of her, once he finds out that it was her that is working with the wolves. I have a feeling that he might like her aleready, maybe not way that he feels about Annika, but I still get a feeling that he enjoys her company. There was a lot more happening in THE VAMPIRE PRINCE then the first book. Considiring what Annika was trying to do, you couldn’t help but be on the edge of your seat. There was always a thought in my head, where I wondered if she would succeed or if she would get caught. If Jacen would find out truth of who she was. There was a part of me, that hoped that she would eventually tell him on her own. I knew that if she didn’t, that it might not end well for her.

I think only person that was suspicious of Annika was Queen Laila. Could you blame her? Considering that Annika picked the kingdom, that was rumored to be non existent. I feel like Annika should have though on it more. I have a feeling that her guard, Tess might suspected that something was off about Annika too. Just the way that she seemed to react towards Annika most of time. At least that is feeling I got. The story, the characters weren’t all that I loved about this book. Did you see the cover for the THE VAMPIRE PRINCE ? It’s breathtaking. If anything, the cover will make you pick up the book. Once again, MICHELLE MADOW created another magical world, that you cannot help but fall in love with. I did.
