The Chosen ‘The Chosen” is the 3rd book in the series- ‘Nine Lives of Chloe King’. I originally picked up the first book becuase I liked the idea of cat girl and I haven’t read any books related to were- cats  before. I liked the previous 2 installments and I enjoyed reading it but the third book upset me a little bit becuase of it’s unfinished ending. Some characters fell flat due to insufficient character development. I won’t say this is the perfect finale to the series, it could have been more action and drama filled.

Now everyone knows that the Chloe is the chosen one. Chloe is cool with it as she doesn’t want to jump into anything she is at home with her mother, going to school and hanging out with friends. But when you are destined to do something you can not avoid it. Dangerous war is about to start and it is going to destroy her people unless she steps in and decides to accept her destiny. Its a war where she won’t be able to recognize her enemies and friends.

My rating: 3 out of 5. It is an average read compared to the first 2 books. If you want to find out how  Nine lives of Chloe King Trilogy ends then it a must read.

The Book of Life”The Book of Life” is the 3rd installment of ‘All Souls Trilogy’, I was waiting to read this final book from a long time. Finally when I read it I was totally shocked! What a epic let down! The discovery of witches was one of my favorite reads from 2011 and from there I kept following this trilogy. Second book was also pretty successful read for me. My expectations were sky high for the 3rd one and now I am disappointed.

After traveling through time in the second book historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont are back to present. But this time they are not alone, Diana is pregnant with Mathew’s babies and twin miracle is on the way. But  missing pages from Ashmole 782 is still a priority, and when this couple will find out the missing pages its going to get ugly. Mathew’s blood thirsty son is hunting for Diana, no one is safe anymore.

My rating: 2 out of 5. There were so many characters and boring stuff everywhere, which was hard to follow and remember. Mathew and Diana were no more young lovers in love they were more like an old couple who over reacted to everything. Finally All souls trilogy ends here and I successfully completed another series.

Girl of Nightmares”Girl of Nightmares” is the second book in Anna Du- logy. I loved the first book, ”Anna Dressed in Blood” I thought it was clever, spooky and funny with interesting characters. I loved the fresh concept of ghost and ghost hunter being in love. I was eagerly waiting to get my hands on the second installment and finally here I am reviewing it.

Anna sacrificed herself to save Cas Lowood, he hoped that she would get her peace. But poor Anna is still a lost soul, and Cas is haunted by her tortured painful face everywhere. The evil soul who killed his father and took away Anna is still in control of her soul. Cas must find a way to get there and help Anna at any cost. Its Cas’s turn to save her, but in this journey to save Anna he find’s out a lot more than he would have wanted.

My rating: 4 out of 5. This series was one of the best paranormal series I have read so far. Excellent imagination and brilliant story, there is nothing to get bored about this book. I highly recommend this series to paranormal fiction fans. Other than the fact that there was not much of Anna in this book everything else was likable.

Mistakes Like Love and Sex”Mistakes Like Love and Sex” by Madhuri Banerjee is the continuation of the ”Loosing my Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas”. Books by this author has got catchy title, may be that is the reason why I bought them. Once in a while I have this strong desire to read books by Indian authors that is why I have piled up my shelf with many books. To tell the truth I didn’t enjoy the first book as much as I did the second. I remember giving it 2 stars out of 5. But an incomplete story is not fun, so I picked up the sequel and I am happy that it didn’t disappoint me.

After serious heart breaking and many failed relations our protagonist Kaveri is back, but this time she is with a handsome Spanish boyfriend  and a lovely job in far away country. But nothing lasts forever, soon she goes through difficult breakup and she is back in India, searching for a good career and her dream man. But as usual Kaveri is Kaveri! she gets into a hot mess with a rich- older man,has hot sex with a Bollywood superstar and works as a Hindi teacher for an upcoming actress. One thing leads to another and she is standing where she was in the beginning, nothing is changed. But when she enters the world of Twitter may be she is at the right direction!

I liked this book better than the first one so my rating: 4 out of 5. I really enjoyed reading this book there were lot of twists and it was never boring.

Jessica Rules The Dark Side Beth Fantaskey”Jessica Rules the Dark Side” is the second book in Jessica series. I can’t believe that I enjoyed the first  book in this series so much and gave 4 stars out of 5.But the second book was very disappointing, I felt that it was a failed attempt for writing a mystery + romance novel. This is what happens when a happy ending book gets a sequel.

The plot picks up with Jessica already married to Lucius and now a full-time princess struggling with her duties. She’s worried about not being good enough for Lucius, not being confident or knowledgeable enough to rule the vampires  and not being brave enough to fulfill the tasks given to her.Things gets harder when Lucas becomes suspect for murdering his uncle and Jessica has to send him to jail. But she believes that he didn’t commit this murder. She has to collect the evidences to prove his innocence before he gets into comma forever due to starving with out blood. Who is the master mind behind the well plotted game? Will she be able to find out the murderer and free her husband?

The mystery was very much predictable and there was not a proper story, by mixing her best friend’s love life and Lucas’s cousin’s problems this book became more painful to read. My rating: 1 out of 5. There are no sequels to this so I think this is the ending of Jessica series.

Between the Spark and the Burn”Between the Spark and Burn” is the second book in ‘Between’ series by April Genevieve. I liked this book better than the first one, the characters were well developed and the story was more clear.

Between the Spark and the Burn picks up where the first book left. River is gone, her parents are back now Violet, Neely, and some of the old gang get together to find River, by following the radio, weird news in tabloids. I usually don’t like the love triangles but in this book it kinda worked. I liked Neely better than River, but how can I blame him when he had his own problems to deal with. I don’t want to review and spoil it for everyone out there who didn’t read this book.

My rating: 4 out of 5. I seriously think there should be another book in the series, this can’t be the ending. The things are left hanging in mid air and I want everything settled, if this is the final book then this is totally unfair for the readers. I want more about River and Neely, like I want to know who ends up with whom? This ending is definitely very dramatic and unsatisfying.

Desires of  the Dead”Desires of the Dead” is the 2d installment in ‘The Body Finder’ series. I liked the first book but was not happy with the crime part of the story. But I still wanted to read and see how things went afterwards so I picked up the second book. Crime and romance go well together, I mean it is a good combination to read. OK, may be this two shouldn’t really go together, but what I meant was it is fun to read.

Dead bodies calls to Violet, not only that but the murderers will also have this different smell and aura around them which will attract her like magnet. This echos and imprints help her to solve the crime cases for her uncle and father who works in the crime related department. Only those closer to her know about her capacity but when a dead boys body calls her she gets into trouble, now FBI are aware of her special instincts and they want her to tell everything about it. When she is happy dating her best friend Jay, there is this new guy and his sister in town who are kind of obstacle for her love life.

I rated this book- 3 out 5, compared to the first book it was brilliantly written. There was lot of suspense and crime detail involved which made this book an interesting read.
