The Harry Potter Spell Book Tag!

hp

I’ve finally managed to sort out all the things I needed to before my next semester at uni starts, so I’ve now got time to get back to all my books and blogging! 🙂 So much has been happening the last few days so it’s great to get some time to curl up on the couch on this typically rainy London day with a hot cocoa, my Kindle and my laptop. I stumbled across the Harry Potter Spell Book Tag on LittleOnion’s blog (whom you should check out, her blog is awesome!), and of course I decided I needed to get in on this!

I’M TAGGING:
Sumaira @ Hyper About Books
Allie @ Little Birdie Books
Appletaile @ Twist in The Taile
Eileen @ Bookwormstothemax
And anybody else that reads this post!
Sorry if you’ve already done this tag, and even if you haven’t don’t feel obliged to do it! 🙂

 

1. Expecto Patronum — A childhood book connected to good memories.

All of the Harry Potter books remind me of great times in my childhood – I was completely obsessed with the series! I preferred the first four books, after Goblet of Fire it started to get a bit too dark for me but I still loved them.

2. Expelliarmus — A book that took you by surprise.

obsidian

Just like it did with LittleOnion, Obsidian and the Lux series totally took me by surprise! I mean, it’s about aliens. Aliens. Hot smoking aliens – did you think it could be possible? Neither did I… But oh, it most certainly is. I read the entire book in one sitting! If you haven’t already read it, you definitely should!

3. Prior Incantato — The last book you read.

herebesexistvampires

Here Be Sexist Vampires was another book that also took me by surprise, I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would! I’m also just about to finish the second book in the series now.

4. Alohomora — A book that introduced you to a genre you wouldn’t have considered before.

Fighting Destiny

Fighting Destiny was the first adult/erotica book I’ve ever read and definitely opened my eyes to this genre (sex and faeries apparently go very well together). I’ve since added a few others similar to this to my TBR list now too!

5. Riddikulus — A funny book you read.

undomestic-goddess

I read The Undomestic Goddess a long, long time ago but I remember I enjoyed it so much. Actually, I’ve always loved Sophie Kinsella books (all except the Shopaholic series, funnily enough). This one is my favourite of hers!

6. Sonorus — A book that you think everyone should know about.

You all know my love for this book and series, so of course this would be my first choice! If you don’t know about it (because you live under a rock or some other crazy reason 😛 ), you need to check it out!

7. Obliviate — A book you wish you never read.

allegiant

It’s true. *hides* I absolutely loved Divergent and Insurgent, but Allegiant totally ruined it for me. Sure, it evoked strong emotions in me which is hard to do, but it also made me really resent the series 😦

8. Imperio — A book you had to read for school.

the stranger

L’Éranger or The Stranger by Albert Camus was a great novel that I had to read in school and I’m so glad that I did.

9. Crucio — A book that was painful to read.

cityofheavenlyfire

This book took me two weeks to read, which is totally crazy! I really wanted to like it because I used to love the TMI series… But it just dragged on and on.

10. Avada Kedavra — A book that could kill.

colourpurple

I really enjoyed this book. I didn’t think I would, but it was extremely heart wrenching and heart warming at the same time. An incredibly well written piece.

Review: Here Be Sexist Vampires by Suzanne Wright

Rating: 4.5stars

Type: Paranormal

Series: Deep in Your Veins

Number of Pages: 279

add amazon

Sam Parker is a vampire with a gift so strong and substantial that she is invited to partake in a test for a place in the Grand High Master Vampire’s private army. She finds that not only has the army never included a woman, but it has never included a Sventé vampire; a breed that is regarded by the super strong Pagori breed and the hypnotically beautiful Keja breed to be too tame and human-like. Most refuse to take her seriously, especially a Pagori commander named Jared who she craves in spite of herself.

The Grand High Master, however, sees her potential and offers her the position of Jared’s co-commander to help train the newest squad in time for the impending attack on his home. Sam has to demonstrate to Jared and the squad of chauvinists why it is incredibly foolish to underestimate a wilful, temperamental, borderline-homicidal Sventé female.

 

My Review

favourites

Yes, a million times yes! I loved it! I was not expecting to like the book as much as I did (especially after how much of a let down the last one was), but oh my god yes. XD I pretty much devoured it in one sitting and I can’t wait to read the next one. I don’t know what made me so hesitant to start it… I think it was because I didn’t like the cover so I kept putting it off 😛 I’m generally not such a big fan of vampire-only books, but as far as I’m concerned, these vampires were pretty much witches (only better).
