Monday Madness

So its review time.  I know it’s late, so I’m going to try to keep this brief.

This week’s review is going to be over Death and the Girl Next Door by Darynda Jones!!


This book can definitely be found on my favorites shelf.


Darynda Jones, author of The New York Times bestselling series that began with First Grave on the Right, brings us Death and the Girl Next Door, a thrilling Young Adult novel garnering high praise and early buzz from major authors

Ten years ago, Lorelei’s parents disappeared without a trace. Raised by her grandparents and leaning on the support of her best friends, Lorelei is finally beginning to accept the fact that her parents are never coming home. For Lorelei, life goes on.

High school is not quite as painful as she thinks it will be, and things are as normal as they can be. Until the day the school’s designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it, standing outside her house in the dark, night after night. Things get even more complicated when a new guy—terrifying, tough, sexy Jared Kovach—comes to school. Cameron and Jared instantly despise each other and Lorelei seems to be the reason for their animosity. What does Jared know about her parents? Why does Cameron tell Jared he can’t have Lorelei? And what will any of them do when Death comes knocking for real? Thrilling, sassy, sexy, and inventive, Darynda Jones’s first foray into the world of teens will leave readers eager for the next installment.

My Review

      So this book is a great read in my opinion.  It has the elements of fantasy and romance and rivalry.  Enough to make you kind of want to go and get involved in the action.  Not only is there action, I had moments where I could not stop laughing because of something the characters said or did.

     My favorite character has got to be Jared, the dark mysterious bad boy of the story.  After all, who doesn’t like the bad boy? Jared is not someone you want to mess with.  He isn’t afraid of the strongest person that walks the halls of Lorelei’s high school.  But, what happens when him Cameron and the bad boy finally go at it?

     So on to Lorelei. Lorelei is the character that I could see myself being if this was real life.  She is witty, strong, independent, and takes crap from no one.  You would not be able to stop her once she sets her mind to something.  She will give you what you deserve.

      Anytime there was conflict through out the book, it always found a way to make it seem like these are just versions of what we deal with on a larger scale.

Hope you want to read the book now if you haven’t yet.

Love ya,

Kat ❤



Monday Madness

It’s Monday again! Yay!! So for this week’s review, I’ve decided to review is Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow.


Dru Anderson has been “strange” for as long as she can remember, traveling from town to town with her father to hunt the things that go bump in the night. It’s a weird life, but a good one-until it all explodes in an icy, broken-down Dakota town, when a hungry zombie busts through her kitchen door. Alone, terrified, and trapped, Dru’s going to need every inch of her wit and training to stay alive. The monsters have decided to hunt back to back-and this time, Dru’s on their menu. Chances of survival? Slim to none.

If she can’t last until sunup, it’s game over…

So if that gets you kind of interested in reading the book, here’s my review of the book.

      Dru Anderson was a character that I fell in love with immediately! She takes no crap from anybody, loves fighting and taking her energy out that way, and she can take care of herself in any situation. (Kind of reminds me of myself) She will stop at nothing to reach her goal, even if that means doing what seems impossible to most people. I never wanted to put this book down. It drew me in from the first couple of pages and made me want nothing than to finish the book that second. Not to mention the two boys that suddenly turn up out of nowhere, wanting to help her. One knowing about the supernatural world, the other not. What could go wrong if they ever meet? Guess you will just have to read to find out. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the books in the series. Until next time, Kat ❤


Monday Madness/ Contest

YAY!!!!! It’s been a while since I have done a Monday Madness, so I have so many options to try and pick through.


I might have to do more than one.

So the first one is Goddess by Josephine Angelini



      Let me start off by saying this book is awesome!  I’ve read it more than once.  It is the third book in the Starcrossed series so I suggest reading the other two first if you haven’t.  

      Anyway, in this book, it is the final showdown between the gods and scions (what most people consider demigods).  Helen, the most powerful of all the scions, has the hardest choice to make… the love of her life or her family and friends that she could never give up for the world.  Hades taught her many things during her time in the Underworld as the Descender.  She only hopes it can be enough to beat Zeus.  How could her life have changed so much in a year?  After this all began when she discovered she wasn’t a mortal.


Now it’s time for the second review.  This one will be about Poison Princess Kresley Cole!!


    This book wins one of my absolute favorites by a long shot!  Kresley Cole is able to make any reader wish that the book were longer and would never end.

    As you can guess by the book cover I put above, this one is in a series.  But lucky for you it’s the first one this time!  Every story has to begin somewhere.  This one begins with a card a specific card from a specific deck… a tarot deck.  Not what you usually think of when you think of a deck of cards. Each card has a picture on it with a caption stating what the picture is.  On these cards, one could find the cards Death, The Fool, The Empress, The Alchemist, and other cards.  

    Of course something bad has to happen to the main character to kick off the plot, but who says the bad thing can’t happen to EVERYONE!!  It seems like the end of the world to everyone.  No one knows for sure how long they will be able to live, or if it is their last day.  Evangeline, Evie, just hopes she can keep her and her mom alive for one more day sac morning she wakes up.  To find out more about Evie and her sometimes friend/sometimes enemy, that so happens to be a boy, Jackson, go get the book.!

I can personally say that if you are into this kind of stuff, you will not regret reading this book.  Cole kept it alive with humor, sarcasm, something I probably need to get less of :), and romances, that you will not want to put this book down.


Well, that’s it for this week.  Be sure to watch out tomorrow for the Tuesday Teaser to see what book you can get a sneak peak of.




For this contest, it will be two parts for two different winners.  The first winner will get whatever social media shout out they want and will get to have their review of whatever book they want posted on here for the Monday Madness in 3 weeks.  The second winner gets a choice of one of the two.

So on to how to enter the contest.  To be entered into the contest, all you have to do is like this post and comment what you’re favorite book I’ve reviewed so far is and what is your favorite genre to read.  You can comment each day for another entry to try and win.  The contest will end at the end of the day next Monday, my time, and btw I live in the US.  At the end of the contest, I will put all the names into a hat or something and draw two different names out.  The winners will be announced when I post the Tuesday Teaser, so don’t forget to check back next Tuesday if you enter the contest.
