Miss Peregrine's home for peculiar children by Ransom Riggs

I will say for a first book by this author, it was will worth reading. Its a mix of photographs and very well put together story telling. If I was to give this book a rating it would be a high number on my part.

When Jacob Portman was young he used to listen to his grandfather tell him stories about people and young kids that he knew. The stories seemed to be fantasies more then anything. As Jacob grew older he started to have a hard time believing what his grandfather was telling him.His grandfather would show him pictures but, still Jacob wasn't sure what to believe. Then, one night his grandfather started to talk nonsense. He went to find his grandfather only to find him laying on the ground dead. Out of the corner os Jacob's eye he saw the monster that his grandfather talked about or thought he did.

Because of the things going on with Jacob, both of his parents decided it was time for him to see an therapist. So they sent him to see Dr. Galon. Jacob began to tell Dr. Galon the stories and the dreams he was having. Finally, Dr. Galon told Jacob that it wouldn't be a bad idea if he took a trip to find out the truth for himself. So, Jacob and his father desided to take that trip together.

Where they ended up at, was an island. After a day or so, Jacob decided to see if he can find the house that his grandfather talked about and to see if he could find anything more about the kids and this Miss Peregrine was. With his looking around he found a chest and he needed to unlock it. After sending it sailing downwards and ending up in the basement he went down there and found more and more pictures. Some time had gone by and he heard noices of children's footsteps and that's when he met Emma.

Following the girl he didn't know that it would lead to some place that he never knew existed. That's when he met Miss Peregrine and the rest of the peculiar children that lived there. Each child had a different thing they could do and Emma could make fireballs with her hands.

As the story went on, Jacob learned a lot about what they were and things he wasn't sure he could explain to his father. when things started to happen and Jacob needed to figure out how to help them the story moved very fast. I'll say this, if you haven't read this book, pick it up and read it. Its very worth it. I can't tell you what happens to Jacob or those children but, thier life as they knew it changes. They needed to save their Miss Peregrine but, in the end they need to save thier way of life too.

Pick up the book, you'll be quite happy you did. Well, I'm off to start my next book. Remember to read a good book, you'll be glad you did.

Rpman is evil but just like them. He can live forever. For Ever she needs to find a way to get that antidote and in some way she has to take the bad things she's done and correct them.
Damen though has other plans. He has been searching within himself for some answers that could change everything that Ever has ever wanted.
Ever's aunt wants her to get a job and has one all planned out for her but, Ever has other plans. That's when she meets Jude and very sexy blond with green eyes. Something about him draws her to him.
Damen tells her its time for her to choose who she wants. He then says that he's going to give her some space. She doesn't like it but, has no choice.
Roman puts out a riddle to her that he's going to expect her to solve. What she doesn't know it what it will cost her in doing just that.
Well, I'm not blowing the ending. You'll have to read the book. For a love story and a little bit of suspence this book moves quite will from chapter to chapter. Very will written and not boring.
I'm off to start my next book. Enjoy your reading, I know I do.

The Morganville Vampires Vol.1 by Rachel Caine

This is a 2 in 1 book. Glass houses and The dead girls dance. This the start of a new series for me and so far its pretty good.
Claire Danvers is a 16 year old girl that has moved to Morganville to go to college. She's smart and her parents brought her there. What she didn't realize was that she was going to have problems with some of the girls at the school. They were going to kill her and she knew she couldn't stay in the dorm any more. What she did find was a house off campus.
First she met Eve, then Shane and lastly Micheal. They were all 18 years old and wasn't sure that her staying there would be a good idea. To Claire both of the guys were very cute. Her problems were only just starting. She found out that there was this book that the vampires in town were looking for. She knew that it was important to them but didn't know why.
By the end of the glass house you find out what happens to them. What happens to the book. One ghost a whole bunch of a lot of vampires and bad people, with some good, do end up with one heck of a good story. And this is only the first book in this series and the first book in this two in one book.
The dead girls dance starts right where the glass house ended and things end up getting worse not better. Shane ends up gettting taken by the town because of what his father does. His father kills a vampire even though the vampire isn't a good one. Claire needs to find some way to save him. She also realizes that she's in love with him.
Micheal makes a decision that will take him as he was to a full fledge vampire. 
So much going on in the books you'll have to read them to find out what happens. I'm not going to spoil the ending. The story is will written and I like how the story goes, very fast paced.
Well, I'm off to start another book. Remember if you want to know what happens to Claire and her friends then you'll have to pick up this 2 in 1 book and read it.

Balefire by Cate Tiernan

This is a 4 in 1 book. A chalice of wind, A cicle of ashes, A feather of stone and A necklace of water.
A chalice of wind,
Thias Allard was living Welsford, Connecticut with her father. Then, her father died and she had to move away from everything she ever knew. Axelle was surposely a friend of her dad's and was going to take her to New Orleans. That's where she was going to be staying. Thias was very sad and felt so very alone.
Clio Martin lived in New Orleans with her grandmother. She's lived there all her life. She was a witch in training. Her grandmother Nan as Clio called her was her teacher. Clio didn't know that her life was going to change and that Thias was her twin sister.
Axelle had friends that she was hanging out with and there were others coming from other places in the country. Jules, Daedalus,Richard, Claire, Marcel, Ouida, Manon,Luc, and a few others were all getting together for some reason that Thias didn't understand.
Thias ended starting her last year of high school and that's where she met Clio. From there on she didn't think she had anyone left that was family. Things may just be different, tell she found out she was a witch. She didn't understand it and seemed a little upset about it.
What neither of them knew was that Luc had been seeing the other one tell when Clio had a party and he showed up. With things going on and maybe someone trying to kill one of them. They needed to find out the truth before anything did happen to one of them.
A circle of ashes,
Both girls were still mad at Luc. He knew deep down that he cared and loved Thias but, she didn't want anything to do with him. What they didn't know was that there was a reason that Luc went after both of them.
Daedalus had plans and he needed everyone to do thier part. He didn't trust Petra and now that she had both of the girls and the ritual was getting closer to getting here, he knew that he had to get everyone here. He had a plan.
Thias had moved in with her sister Clio and her grandmother. She seemed to feel better about things. She met Kevin and she thought he was cute but nothing like Luc. Inside her she wished she would quit thinking about him.
Clio and Thias had been trying to do magic together and everytime things went wrong. They had even caught thier house on fire. They couldn''t figure out what went wrong. They told Petra about it and she didn't understand what was going on. Then, one day Thias was out with Kevin and she did a protection spell and it worked. She then was told that water was her elimate.
A feather of stone,
Clio aand Thias still need to figure out who was trying to kill them. They needed to do another spell and they knew they couldn't do it at the house. So, they left and went some where else. What they were to find out shocked them. They also had a problem. They were being sucked into a water spout. Petra, Ouida and one other person arrived just in time to find them. Petra did a spell and saved the girls. The girls told her who it was that was trying to kill them, Richard.
Daedalus had plans but know one knew what. Besides everyone being there and the rite coming up. Clio had to figure out what to do about protecting her and Thais. Some how she had a slight thing for Richard and didn't understand what was causing it. She didn't like him and she knew he didn't care about her.
Other then that, things were changing. Whether she liked it or not.
A necklace of water,
Clio had been practicing with Daedalus for awhile now. She didn't know that his plan for her was going to cause problems that not even she would be able to stop. Thias didn't know that the lady she was with was Melita. Thias wanted revenge for her dad's death and knew what she was going to have to do.
Well, I'm not willing to give away any more of the story. If you want to know what happens to everyone, the twins, Luc, Richard and the rest, you'll have to read this book. I had a very hard time putting it down for how long the book is. But, I finished it and I feel it was worth reading.
I'm off now to start my next book. Remember that some books can get under your skin. They can grab a hold of you and make you want to finish the book tell its finished. This one did just that. A five star book for sure.
