Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

In The Fiery Heart, Sydney risked everything to follow her gut, walking a dangerous line to keep her feelings hidden from the Alchemists.

Now in the aftermath of an event that ripped their world apart, Sydney and Adrian struggle to pick up the pieces and find their way back to each other. But first, they have to survive.

For Sydney, trapped and surrounded by adversaries, life becomes a daily struggle to hold on to her identity and the memories of those she loves. Meanwhile, Adrian clings to hope in the face of those who tell him Sydney is a lost cause, but the battle proves daunting as old demons and new temptations begin to seize hold of him. . . .

Their worst fears now a chilling reality, Sydney and Adrian face their darkest hour in this heart-pounding fifth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where all bets are off.

After reading The Fiery Heart, I remembered why I hate cliffhangers so much. I soo need Sliver Shadows.

On a side note, what is up with that cover? It's horrendous. The cover models look nothing like Sydney or Adrian. And it's downright cheesy. Meh. They could have done just a tad bit better.

TTT - Top Ten Books I Want To Own


This week's topic is a freebie. So, I chose to share my top ten books I want to own. I don't own many books. (I know, surprising right?) That's just because books are so expensive and for that reason only, I borrow books from friends or just get them at the library. My list is mostly top ten book series I want to own (I don't know it just worked out that way). In no particular order..

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)Obsidian (Lux, #1)Isle of Night (The Watchers, #1)Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires, #1)Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1)City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1)Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)The Fault in Our StarsThe Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (Series)
I can't believe I don't own this series. I need it in my life. I did buy Spirit Bound though about a month ago. I'm definitely adding the rest soon!

Lux by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Series)
I read the first two books about a month ago and totally fell in love. I'm now reading the third book, Opal. This series is a must read which means that it's a must buy.

The Watchers by Veronica Wolff (Series)
This is not just another vampire series. This is a kickass, survival of the fittest vampire series. I need to get this pronto.

Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill (Series)
I love, love, love this one. It's not just about vampires but about a lot of other paranormals. I love how Chloe Neill fits politics into this series. I only own one book, Hard Bitten, but hope to get the rest.

Night Huntress by Jeaniene Frost (Series)
Jeaniene Frost can write a kickass vampire novel. I love Cat and Bones!

The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare (Series)
I don't know why I don't own these books! They're at the top top of my favorites list.

The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare (Series)
The same goes for the prequel to the Mortal Instruments. Can I just say WILL HERONDALE.

Blood of Eden by Julie Kagawa (Series)
Another vampire series but seriously I need these in my life. I actually won the last book in the trilogy, The Forever Song, in a giveaway so I was veeeerrrrryyyy excited about that. Now I just need the first two.

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry (Series)
I finished reading Crash Into You recently and it got me really wanting to get all of these books. They're amazing.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan (Series)
I only read and own (my cousin gave it to me) The Lightning Thief but I liked it so much that I want the whole series.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (Standalone)
I came close to buying this book. I totally should have.

The Buzz:

What are some books that you want to own?

Review: Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Title: Allegiant
Author: Veronica Roth
Series: Divergent #3
Reading Level: Young Adult
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books | October 22, 2013
Pages: 526

Buy it: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository | Books-A-Million 


The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

The Scene

The last book in the Divergent trilogy finally takes place outside the walls of dystopian Chicago. Going into this, I was pretty excited to know what was outside. I was predicting like desolation and waste and survival stuff.

I was really off.

What's outside is the government. Apparently, there's like experiments in certain cities that the government (the United States of America, yeah that government) holds to try to "cure" genetically damaged people. And the Divergent are genetically pure people. I don't know, this plot line felt kinda insignificant especially because of the ending.

The Girl

If I start talking about Tris, it's just gonna be a crapload of spoilers. Or a ton of gifs. That give away said spoilers. All I'll say is I'm NOT happy with what happened.

The Boy(s)

Reading from Four's perspective was quite interesting. I always wondered what went on inside his head. I don't know if I liked the dual perspectives all that much. I kinda just liked reading from Tris' POV but it was still cool.

What went on with Peter really irked me. I had like a love/hate relationship (okay, maybe a amuse/hate relationship) going on with him after the events of Insurgent and while reading this book I was starting to like him a bit more. Until the end. It actually reminded me of his cowardice from the first book especially so it was like a wake up of some sorts. I mean he didn't do anything like really horrible but it disgusted me because he took the easy way out.

The WTF?!

1. The Ending
2. The Ending
3. The Ending
4. Uriah

The Buzz

If you get over that wretched ending, then you could say that Allegiant was really good. I enjoyed reading it for the most part although at times I was a tiny bit bored. I have to say I liked Divergent and Insurgent better than the last book. I think it might have something to do with that ending...
