Review The Gift of Illusion: A Paranormal Thriller By: Richard Brown

The Gift of Illusion: A Paranormal ThrillerThe Gift of Illusion: A Paranormal Thriller by Richard Brown

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So i won this e-book on Sunday. I started reading it Monday morning, and finished it around 8 PM last night. Thar's pretty quick for me considering im a slowish reader. Anyway I really loved this book, and i actually emailed the author telling him i loved it which was awesome. I could not put this book down the whole time i was reading it I could not put it down. When i first found out about the book it was on someone else's blog, and i read the description, and i was like wow this sounds really good. So when i got it i was so excited to read, a couple of times i almost cried there was a couple of sad parts. I'd have to say my favorite character had to be Issac i loved that he had such a tragedy happen to him in the past, and he was still working and he still had like a smart alec tone to the way he talked to some people especially his partner Simmons. I was really sad that he died by the way because he was really starting to do good. But i'd rather him die then Amy, because you know that just would of crushed Issac. A part that really freaked me out was when Issac put the gun to himself. Oh man i knew that he really wasn't going to do it but it still made me nervous that he would. I'm glad that he didn't do it he's a great character, and a really really great dad. I can't wait to read more of Richard Brown's Work!!!

Review: The City of Bones By: Cassandra Clare

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1)City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So i just finished The City of Bones, and i have to say i fell in love with the plot and the characters! My favorite i'd have to say is probably Jace just because he was so mysterious, and he was the type that like nothing seemed to be able to hurt him. But then by the end of the book Clary could see in his eyes that he was hurting. At first i thought oh it's just going to be one of those books where the two main characters fall in love Blah Blah Blah. But i was very surprised when i found out that Jace & Clary are actually siblings!! Omg i freaked out!! I was reading and then i found out Valentine was Clary's dad, and i was like wow, then i found out he was Jace's dad too which i didn't believe at first but then i realized it was true. So then i thought what's next your going to tell me that Jocelyn is Jace's mother too? I almost died when i found out! I felt so bad for both Jace, and Clary because you could tell how much they were starting to like each other, and then they find out they're brother & sister? That's gotta be tough. But for Jace, he thought that he knew his dad he thought his dad had been killed right in front of him but really his dad was alive, and someone very evil all along. When he started showing anger towards Jocelyn for abandoning him i was like "Oh! somebody better tell him she thought he was dead right now!!!" I was extremely excited when Clary finally told him, and he started to see the evil in his father. The poor guy, i'm surprised he didn't break down and cry. I would've but after reading the book you know Jace is a really strong character!! Now we all know that Clary isn't the only one who loves Jace. Did anyone else see that coming? Alec being gay, usually i would of but since Alec was all rude, and jerkish to Clary it never crossed my mind, but then i thought about gay guys are going to be nice unless! your trying to take their men! I'm not saying Clary was trying to take Jace from anyone but you could tell there was something there between Jace, and Clary. So i could see how that would hurt Alec in the long run, I'm very glad they made up in the end though!! Omg i have so much more to say!! when Luke told Clary to never contact him i almost started crying myself imagine how it must have killed her! She grew up with him as her father figure, and then to have him tell her not to talk to him, i wouldn't have been able to handle it. And last but not least Isabelle. She hmm she made me nervous in the beginning i thought oh no! this is going to be a fight over Jace, and Isabelle is going to win and it's going to be a war. So when i found out that they're more like brother and sister i was relieved because now Clary & Jace could be together. Wrong again looks like nobody can be together in this book! Well in the next books i really hope that Clary & Jace have a good brother & sister relationship. I hope that Clary comes to her senses and figures out she's madly in love with Simon =), and i hope that when and if Clary's mom wakes up that her and Luke can be together like they should have been when they were kids..

Review Awakened By: P.C. & Kristin Cast

Awakened (House of Night, #8)Awakened by P.C. Cast

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

So i just finished Awakened and i didn't like it as much as the rest of the series because some of it confused me but i still liked it enough to wanna keep going with this series. So many things shocked me about this book. I was so definitely not prepared for Jack of all people to die!! He was like my second or third favorite character i loved him!! I was so sad he definitely did not deserve to die. I swear every book makes me hate Neferet more and more. I mean in the last two books she's caused poor Zoey so much pain. First she kills her first love Heath, who's shes been in love with since grade school, and he was also her human consort. Then she goes ahead and kills Jack who's one of her closest friends. Then she goes and kills her mom! Just when her mom finally decides she wants to have a relationship with her daughter again Neferet decides to kill her! This lady is a real witch!! This was a crazy crazy addition to the series. There's so much to talk about. But the two things i'm glad about are that 1. Zoey and Stark are still together and in love. But the only thing is ever since Kalona breathed life into him he's been acting very strange!! You can find out what he did when you read the book! 2. I'm glad that Stevie Rae and Rephiam got to be together because i could tell she really did love him!! You'll also have to read the book to see what Nyx does to Rephiam!! I was so excited!! But i think that's it i don't want to give away any more spoilers!!!

Okay so i keep seeing all these IMM and all these people are getting books for review. So i was wondering if someone could enlighten me on how that whole process works, because i'd like to start reviewing books next summer. So if someone could leave me a comment or an email at paigebradish@yahoo.com explaining how this whole thing works i'd really appreciate it!! Thanks guys!!

Review Vampire Academy By: Richelle Mead

Wow... I really loved this book. I tried to read it once in eighth grade but i only read the first few pages and decided i didn't like it. That was a huge mistake. I enjoyed this book so much!! I loved all the characters especially Lissa, Rose, and Dimitri. I like the whole concept of the story, because usually in vampire stories the vampire has a hard time resisting blood. But in this story they still have to drink blood but they don't attack people for it which is cool. I like that Lissa is able to have a best friend who isn't a vampire. Now for the romantic relationships. When i was first introduced to Dimitri i thought he was just some guardian, and i didn't care much, but as i got into the story i started liking him more and more. By the end of the book i wanted him and rose to be together so bad but i know it wouldn't work out, there would be way to many obsticals in their relationship. But i'm still secretly hoping they get together in the next books, which i cannot wait to read!!! I'm glad that Lissa, and Rose took Mia down even though i'm pretty sure she'll be back with a vengeance but i'm sure they'll be ready for that. Overall i'm really glad i gave this series a second chance because i love it!!!

Chapters 5 & 6 of my story!!

Please let me know what you think!! I love the feedback!!!

Chapter 5

Sarah woke up early on the morning of the funeral. She looked at the clock knowing she didn’t need to be anywhere until noon she tired to go back to sleep but she couldn't. Before she could get up and get the kids prepared for the day ahead of them her third youngest daughter Penny crawled in bed with her. Penny could see the tears in her moms eyes and she didn’t like it one bit. Her mom was always the strongest person in her life. Her mom was the one that always held everyone together even when she was falling apart herself. But today Penny knew her mom couldn’t handle her and her siblings fighting or much of anything really.
"Mom? Are we going to be able to make it through today?". Sarah looked at her daughter then kissed her forehead.
"Yes, as long as we all stick together sweetie". Penny smiled which Sarah hadn't seen her do in days.
"Okay mom, well you look tired you should take a nap I’ll ask Jackson to make us all breakfast". Sarah smiled and hugged her tight
"No I think you should cuddle with me for an hour or so, and then we'll get up and make breakfast together for anyone else".
Finally after Penny, Sarah was able to fall asleep easily for about an hour. And for the first time in weeks she didn’t have any nightmares at all.

When Sarah woke up for the second time she looked at her daughter and thought to herself, she should fall asleep with her kids more often they're better then the dream catcher hanging from her ceiling. She got up slowly and carefully trying not to wake Penny knowing that she desperately needed rest because today was going to be an extremely hard day especially for her kids. Wandering in the kitchen she spotted a note on the kitchen table from Sean. Reading the letter Sarah started to cry because it was so sweet.

Dear mom,
I just wanted to say that I love you even though you've been sad lately because of what happened to dad. I'm sure you miss him as much as all of us do, which is normal. I also wanted to say that me and my brothers and sisters are always going to be here for you no matter what. If you ever need a shoulder to cry on just come to one of us and at least one shoulder will be free, I don’t know which one but its okay they're both the same. Anyway I hope this made you feel a little better mom I wrote it thinking it would cheer you up and I hope it did. I love you, and I’ll see you in the morning.
-Love, Sean

Two hours later Sarah and her big family were in the car on there way to Todd’s funeral. It was hard but they all believed that if they stuck together that they would be okay, and that they wouldn’t break down. They pulled into the church parking lot and before getting out they just sat there for a few minutes to scared to get out too scared to face anyone right away. Little Jake was the first person to get out of the car, he admitted that he was scared but he knew that they had to face their fears or they would never be able to go on with there lives. The little speech Jake gave made Sarah tear up a little but she kept it together and they all got out of the car and went inside. Together the Windlin family faced everyone they had to. Friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, and some people they didn’t even know came to pay their respects. Secretly Sarah wondered if Todd’s "Daughter" had shown up. But she would never know because at that time she didn’t know what the women looked like. She decided to push it out of her mind she couldn’t let that stuff get to her she had to be there for her kids.

Many people had stories and memories to share of Todd. Everybody laughed, cried, and smiled. Until Jackson gave his speech which made everybody laugh, cry, and smile like nothing before.

"Well, today we're all here to say goodbye to my dad. Who was brutally murdered a few weeks ago". He heard a few sobs before he went on.
"My dad was amazing at least he was to us anyway. He was always there when ever you needed him no matter what if he was at work he'd rush home or wherever you were. He was always the first one to make you laugh or smile after we'd fallen off our bikes. Not that mom wasn't there because she so was but im just saying this is about dad not mom. You understand right mom?". That got a few laughs, and a big smile from Sarah.
"Yes honey I understand". Jackson smiled
"that’s good im glad. So let me go on dad was hmmm how should I say this he was a goodhearted human being, he worried about us way way more then he worried about himself. We always had to tell him dad! stop worrying about us you need to think about yourself too, but we always told him in a good way of course". Jackson looked down and wiped tears away
"I don’t know how much longer im going to be able to talk without my voice cracking so im just going to say this I loved my dad and so did my family, and so did so many other people and he didn’t deserve to be murdered. To be taken away from all of us, he might have made mistakes in the past but inside he was a good man to all of us and we loved him". Then Jackson gave in and started balling he couldn’t do it anymore even though he had a much longer speech prepared he couldn’t speak any longer and everyone understood that. His family rushed up to hug him and lead him out of the church they all needed some fresh air.

Chapter 6
Investigation Part Two
A week before the funeral on the day of the murder, detectives investigated as best they could around the house. Especially in the bedroom. On the window they happened to find blood stains and bloody fingerprints. They were able to recover a few fingerprints, enough to figure out who murdered Todd but not enough to keep testing them over and over. So they had to make sure they really had a good feeling about who they thought killed Todd before they tested the prints.

Also in the bedroom there was of course a lot of blood, most of it came from the body but there was a bit of blood by the window and on the glass that was broken, and it wasn’t Todd Windlins blood. The detectives knew that this blood would help them a lot in their investigation.

A week and a half after the funeral the police still had no leads so they decided to question Sarah one day and her son Jackson the next. Sarah got the call from police while she was at work. She tried to tell them that she couldn’t leave because there was no one to cover for her but the cops called the school to make sure there was someone to cover for her, and then she had to leave no matter what.

Sarah showed up at the Police Station immediately she was taken into an interrogation room.
"So Mrs. Windlin... We have a couple questions for you".
"Okay well I have answers for those couple questions, There not going to be lawyer required questions are they?"
"Well that is entirely up to you Sarah. Is it okay if I call you that?"
"Yes, that’s fine okay so lets get this over with I have to pick up my son in an hour"
"Well im not sure that we'll be done in an hour is there anyone you could call to pick up your son for you?" She looked coldly at the detective.
"No there isn't if this requires more time we can pick this up were we left off another time".
"That’s fine Sarah, So the first question is how long have you known Todd?"
"Well we met in high school we got together when he turned 19 which was when we both went off to college together so ive known him for 20 years all together, we dated 8 years before we were married".
"That’s quite a long time, now all those years did you ever feel like someone had a grudge against or just didn’t like your husband?"
"Well no actually my husband was a very very lovable guy he had a lot of friends, Every time we had a party he invited like 50 people and they almost always showed up every single one of them we always had such a good time".
"He sounds like a very nice man. Now did your husband ever mention that he had a daughter that he shared with another women?"
Sarah looked down at her hands and wiped her eyes
"No I never knew about a daughter, but after we found the note that was in his coat pocket we called his parents to see if they knew anything about it".
"Well they didn't but Todd’s brother happened to be there and he I guess over heard the whole phone call because minutes after I hung up with his parents I got a call from him. He told me that Todd had admitted to him that he got his old girlfriend pregnant when they were still teenagers".
"Is that so? Why do you think he never told you or never brought his daughter around?"
"His brother told me that he didn’t want anything to do with the child but he wasn’t exactly sure why. I believe the reason why he didn’t tell me is because he knows that im a strong believer that every child should have both a mother and a father in their life no matter what because every kid needs at least two strong figures to raise them. He knew that I would be very upset if I found out he abandoned his poor daughter. I love all children I would of been quite angry if I found out he left his daughter especially with an abusive mother".
"Well that was quite a mouthful Sarah." she looked at the clock
"Oh im sorry I have to go im 15 minutes late picking up my son" she got up and ran out the door and drove away to pick up her son.

The police changed pace after their interview with Sarah. They didn’t suspect she did this anymore. Usually its always the people who seem to innocent to do something like that but in this case they are trying to focus more on the kids of Todd. They say that he treated them well but after the letter they read that was from his oldest daughter Caroline saying how bad he treated her who knows who they can believe. Which is why they decided to question Todd’s oldest son Jackson. The reason why the picked Jackson is because he was no longer living with the family prier to Todd dying so they think they might be able to get something out of him.

"So Mr. Windlin how old are you?"
"I just turned 19"
"So your only about a year younger then your dads oldest daughter?"
"Um I guess I don’t know. I didn’t even know that he had another daughter, nobody did".
"Yes, so we heard well we wanted to ask you a few questions about your dad".
"Okay" The detective shifted in his seat a little.
"So obviously your dad has been in your life since you were born. How was your dad towards you?"
"My dad was always great he was always there to pick us up when we were down, he fixed our cuts and scrapes. He never really yelled he was strict but he made sure he took care of us. I think if he ever didn’t mom would of kicked him out".
"Is that so? So who do you think did this to your dad Jackson?"
"Um im not sure im really not comfortable talking about who murdered my dad!" Jackson got up abruptly and left the police station. The detectives decided not to cross him off the suspect list just yet.

Review for I Like It Like That By: Cecily von Ziegesar

I Like It Like That By: Cecily von Ziegesar
I love these books. They're such an easy read!!! I love to be able to actually curl up on the couch and hold the book because i can't always do that if i'm reading a big fat book. I've been reading this series for awhile now and i've fallen for it! I love the books and i love the TV series! Which is odd because I'm the type of person who wants to always read the book before i see the movie or the TV show but in this case i started watching the show first, and i still loved the books which is pretty good, because its hard to find a book where its exactly the same as the show or movie. I hate hate hate reading a book and then watching the show or movie and it's completely different! Like for instence Vampire Diaries, I read the books, and then started watching the show, and so many things were different it made me so mad but i still love both the show and the book! So it's sort of hard to write a review on this book because every chapter is something else so the only thing i have to say is i can't wait to read the next book and find out the following

*Will N and B get back together?
*Will S find someone to love?
*Will V and D forgive eachother each other and live unhappily ever after?
*Will we hear more from G? Do we want to?
*Will J and L figure it out? Does she want to?
*Will C come out?
*Will I?

Lol that is the ending of book # 5 written by Cecily von Ziegesar so dont think i wrote it because i think the author would be a bit mad!! Thanks for reading!!

My Review on Glow By: Amy Kathleen Ryan

Wow just wow first I’d like to say this is probably the first review your going to see because again I won this online. You cant actually get it in stores until September 27, 2011. So anyway I really liked this book, and I cant wait to read the next book, but I know I’ll be waiting awhile. I love the characters my favorite would have to be Kieran. At first it was Waverly but at the very end I changed my mind. (literarily the last chapter I changed my mind) But I wont tell you what made me change my mind because well that would ruin the entire book and I sooo wouldn’t do that. So when you've finished reading the book feel free to come ask why I changed my mind incase you don’t already know =) Throughout the whole book I thought Kieran was a very strong character and that hasn’t changed I think now that I’ve finished the book he's even stronger in my eyes. Overall the book is a little strange because its not based on earth much at all which was very interesting to read because you don’t read many books with a setting like that.
