The Emmy Awards were on tonight. As with everything he does Neil Patrick Harris was brilliant as the host. My favorite part was this number in the middle of the show which features a couple of special guests, one that I have a particular fondness for. The entire number is fabulous but at about 2:06 in the performance I started getting texts making sure I was watching. I love that so many people think of me when they see Nathan ;)
I've been stalking, I mean a fan of Kiersten's pretty much from the day Paranormalcy was published.(see my stalking adventures here and here.) I thoroughly enjoyed that series. I was intrigued (and a little freaked out) by Mind Games. Which reminds me... I need that sequel soon!! But this book, this is Kiersten's best book so far!!
Mythology, sarcasm, adventure, romance, and good food... I'm not sure I could ask for more in a book!! Oh wait, there's also the really flawed and broken main character that is figuring out who she is and what she wants from life. And there's a swoony boy with dark hair and blue eyes, which everyone knows is my biggest weakness. I've read a couple of reviews that said this book was hard to get into. I didn't have that problem but I can see that the first few chapters could be a bit difficult. There's a lot of background and character information to establish in those first few pages- don't give up, it will be worth it- I promise!!
Deception by C.J. Redwine is the sequel to Defiance. (I gushed about my love for Defiance here.)We all know that sometimes the second book in a trilogy can be disappointing. It's like that awkward stage we all go through, a necessity but not all that much fun. Thankfully, Deception is NOT one of those sequels. If anything, Deception is better than Defiance. And considering how much I loved Defiance, that's saying a lot. Deception takes the action, adventure, and romance from the first book to a whole new level. It is a non-stop ride and I loved every heart pounding second of it! If you haven't started this series, do it NOW!!! p.s.- Chapter 40 is brutal. Have a box of tissue ready. p.s. again- I really, really, really need book three!!!
