Top Ten Fairytale Retellings & Books That Will Thrill You.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by

I can't think of 10 books that fit perfectly into one category that I have personally read. So, here are my Top 5 from two different categories!  

I love fairy tale retellings! Sirena I read back in middle school but I have re read multiple times. The Book of Lost Things is still probably my most favorite book EVER!! and Cinder is my new addiction! The whole series is crazy addicting!

I don't know about you but I do love to get thrilled every now and then. J.L. Bryan writes 3 out of my top 5 thrilling books, Ellie Jordan is a great series to fill my thrill quota. TEN was an amazing read, reminiscent of Ten little indians, and  Then there were None. Coraline.. gosh reads like its intended for kids.. heck it did become a kids movie but geez it must have given some kids out there some major nightmares! 

I'd love to see your top 10. Leave me your link ! Follow on GFC or Bloglovin' , I follow back !

REVIEW: Fairest ( Lunar Chronicles 3.5 )

Fairest ( Lunar Chronicles #3.5)

Marissa Meyer 

Publication date: Jan 27. 2015

Source: Bought Kindle Version

222 Pages

Links : Goodreads / Amazon 

In this stunning bridge book between Cress and Winter in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles, Queen Levana’s story is finally told.

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?

Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never been told . . . until now.

Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes full-color art and an excerpt from Winter, the next book in the Lunar Chronicles series.

                    My Thoughts                   

What makes a bad girl so Bad ?

 I loved Fairest ! I know there are always mixed reviews from readers and I think you either love or hate these extra books in A series, but me,  I LOVE THEM !  Pretty much Marissa Meyer can do no wrong , please keep writing!  Like many of the other companion books in the Lunar Chronicles, Fairest tells us about the past of the most allusive character so far, Queen Levana.

REVIEW: The Crawling Darkness ( Ghost Trappers #3 )

The Crawling Darkness  Ghost Trappers #3        

J.L. Bryan 

Publication date: January 20th 2015

Links : Goodreads / Amazon 

Paranormal investigator Ellie Jordan faces a new case in an apartment building where a twisted, dangerous entity emerges from closets and doorways to terrorize the residents at night. A powerful spirit, it feeds on fear and takes the shape of its victims' worst nightmares.

Ellie and her mentor Calvin have tried to capture the same entity before, in a different house nearby, an attempt that ended in disaster. Now, with the help of her apprentice Stacey, Ellie must try again to capture the elusive shapeshifting ghost before it can claim another soul as its own.

                    My Thoughts                   

Hands down the creepiest Ellie Jordan yet!

Wow, I thought the Ellie Jordan novels were great before, but J.L. Bryan turned up the scary to a whole new level in the third novel in the Ghost Trapper series, Crawling Darkness!  Ellie and Stacey are called to investigate an entity who is appearing as it's victims worst fears and crawling around the walls. The house where this haunting takes place has been made into multi residential apartment complex, so Ellie Stacey and Jacob have to get the help and support of all of the neighbors in the complex to rid this truly evil spirit!

First off... soooo scary!!! I really had a hard time reading this at night, and it wouldn't have been possible if I had a closet in my bedroom. After reading crawling darkness I couldn't be more grateful that my closet is in my bathroom. Whew! One of the things I liked best about this book was that the entity appeared differently to everyone in the house, I loved hearing each persons individual scary stories about what they saw: Flesh face, space aliens, bloody Mary, it scared me so bad but I loved it. Especially that bloody Mary part, come on you know you have said her name in the bathroom with the lights off. I know I have !

Jacob took a little bit of a backseat in this one but I did love the new introduction of the smoking hot firefighter  ( see what i did there ) A fire fighter is pretty perfect for Ellie and her past.  This series is getting better and better! Can't wait to read book 4 in the Ghost Trapper series, Terminal.

REVIEW: Next to You (Where Life Takes You #2 )

Next to You

Claudia Y. Burgoa 

Publication date: July 1st 2014

Source: Paperback given by author for honest review.

240 Pages

…I need time. Time to heal those wings and learn to use them…

Was part of the letter Rebecca Trent, Daniel Brightmore’s fiancĂ©e and best friend left when she ran away. The person he trusted the most for the past decade disappeared without giving him a second glance. She taught him how to love, believe in family and that everyone deserves a happily ever after. Now he’s struggling between wiping any traces of her from his life and drowning his sorrows away with the help of his new best friends—Don Julio and Jack Daniels.


Rebecca’s past suffocated her to the point of not wanting to continue, her lifeline and the only reason to live began to withdraw from her. She wished it had been her imagination, but heard it loud and clear: “If not, there’s always a divorce, nothing is forever.” This time it became a leave or die situation. Something has got to change—she had to change. Packing light and leaving a letter behind, she takes a journey that can help her find herself through the shards of her painful childhood.

As letters, memories and stories are exchanged, two once inseparable people reconcile what’s left of their relationship. Beyond the confines of everything they built together, they’re left with two lonely people searching for what it means to be whole. Will they find meaning under their bruised psyches or will their pasts get the better of them?

                    My Thoughts                   

Is is possible that I loved Next to You even more than I loved Where Life Takes You... the answer is YES!!!
