The RescueNicholas Spark’s novel never failed to make me cry, and this book is not different. I have read 10 books from this Author, including ” The Rescue”.  There is something in his novels which makes you get attached to the characters and see them as humans rather than just characters. When he writes a story every character comes into life. The Rescue is about a mother with her abnormal child, who has got learning disabilities and a gentleman who is commitment phobic, and with a terrible past memory making him suffer every moment.

Denise and her son Kyle meets with am accident in a bad weather right after moving to a new town. They are rescued by a volunteer fireman, Taylor and from there their friendship blooms. Kyle is attached to Taylor as he never was attached to anyone. Denise who is single mother and gone through lot of difficulties is scared to take the friendship to next level. But Taylor with his charm and gentleness gets hold on her heart. Everything is perfect until Taylor’s previous self is returned and the chilling truth is that he shows no interest anymore. Will Denise be able to go through this heart break? Will Kyle understand what it means that Taylor can’t be there for him anymore? Whats is this thing keeping Taylor away from everything?

Its a good book, I recommend for those who enjoy Nicholas Spark’s novels. I read it somewhere that this is his debut. My ratings: 3 out of 5.

P.S: I was crying when I reached very close to the end of this book, reading Denise speak out her feelings. I was travelling in bus with lots of tissues in hand, but fortunately as it was afternoon time there were very less people to notice me!

CeaselessLast book from ”Existence Trilogy” is ”Ceaseless”.  I liked the first book in this series, after that I lost interest while reading the second and third book. I felt as if the story was long over and the author just kept  dragging it.

In ”Ceaseless” Pagan Moore is subjected to test. In second book she has proved that her love is worth now she has to face something bigger as test to get Dank. The test is very simple, all her memories about Dank has been erased and she is starting over again like a normal teenage girl away from her home, going to college. But she has to chose Dank. She has given choices over dank, he soul mate and a lot of teenage boys are there to compete with Dank this time. It is not easy for Dank to get his Pagan back. Will Pagan chose Dank instead of her soul mate? Will any other boys be there to take his place this time? What Leif is doing around when Pagan’s memory of Leif is also been erased and Pagan can’t remember him? Is he playing any Voodoo games like last time? More than anything how Dank will convince Pagan to choose him when right from the beginning Pagan misunderstood him?

Its a time pass book if you are fan of paranormal novels and already you have read the first and second book from this series then you can read this book. My rating 3 out of 5. (Because Dank is hot and romantic as ever 🙂 )

the-silver-kissThis is vampire and human love story. Where Zoey falls for Simon, who is 300 years older than her. This was published in 1990. I liked the book from the beginning, this is what real vampires are if there are! Because here Simon can’t cross the running water, can’t stand the crucifix, can’t enter without invited to anybody’s house and he can’t walk in the sunlight free.

Zoey is a normal teenager who is going through lot more than a normal teenager do. Her mom is dying at the hospital, her dad is so much into his work and hospital that he doesn’t get time to talk to her or he is avoiding her. Her best friend is moving to some where far, even she doesn’t want to talk about Zoey’s problems. Totally she is on her own. She meets this handsome guy called Simon one night at the park and falls for him with out knowing who he is but when she comes to knows she is gone far away to come back. Simon wants to take revenge on his brother who put him to this black hole and who is slaughtering women at night. Will Simon succeed in this? What will happen to Zoey and Simon?

It is kind of sad ending but it was somehow perfect ending. I have read this author’s ”Blood and Chocolate” novel. But ”The Silver Kiss” is her debut novel.   My rating: 3 out of 5.

SlammedThis book totally blew me away, an excellent book, shocked it’s a debut novel! There is a slam poet inside me so it didn’t take much to like the book. I was in love with it the second I started reading.

The characters were strong, compelling, and believable. The main character is Lake. Lake and Will and their ethical and moral dilemma shuts down their relationship. But they can’t change what they feel for each other even though it is not right.  Lake’s mother had a secret that turned their world upside down. I liked Will as he appealed to me as a very strong character with lot of burden on his life.

Inclusion of a poetry slam in the story is best. You can feel the pain, happiness of the poet in the slams. I just loved it and wrote few more slams but all looked like I got inspired from the slams from this book. One day I will have my own slamming blog 🙂 YA fans it is a best book to read! My rating is 4 out of 5.

This book made me laugh, cry and my  heart ache. I am glad that I read this book. If you are a fan of Romantic novels, then go ahead read this book.

Where-She-WentAdam’s Promise: If you stay, I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll quit the band; go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I’ll do that too. .. And that would suck, but I’ll do it. I can lose you like that, if I don’t lose you today. I’ll let you go. If you stay.

You will know who promised this to whom if you have read the first book in the ”If I stay series”.  Mia decided to stay back even though she lost all reasons to live,just because Adam requested her to hang on to her life. But in the second book ”Where She Went” she went away from Adam according to his promise he just let her go. Now Adam is a famous rock star, Mia is popular Cello player. Adam hates his celebrity life and not happy with so called famous new girl friend. One night when he thinks that his life is collapsed he meets Mia and his hopes returns. Will Mia and Adam get back? Why did Mia go away in the first place? Why Adam is not happy being famous and rich rock star?

I loved “If I Stay”. It was one of those books that made my heart ache. It moved me and made me cry. But second book is not what I expected.I admit to being a bit disappointed by the second book. My rating are: 2 out of 5.
