BOOK REVIEW Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed
by E.L. James
(series: #3 Fifty Shades)
Originally published 2012
Published by Vintage
Romance, Erotica

Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades, #3)5 stars

Another powerful prologue. And the book keeps surprising me! It gets pretty intense in this one, not just sexually or in their relationship. There´s an element of thrill/suspense in it as well. In the end bit of the book I felt like it was never ending, but still I loved every bit of it! I thought it had a very appropriate ending and I don´t feel like I have unanswered questions in my head.

I have to say that one thing I most loved about these books were their emails! And of course these book covers. I´m finished with the series but luckily I´ll have the movies to wait for!

BOOK REVIEW Bridesmaid Lotto

4 stars

This book was funny and made me laugh in more than one occasion! Sure, it was not very surprising in general, but there were some shocking events in there as well that I did not see coming! Perfect for a light easy reading after something heavier, emotionally deep books. At least was for me! But if you don´t like silly girls´ books, then this is not a book for you.

So this is what it´s about:

A random normal girl gets a chance to meet a movie star. A hot movie star. But it´s not just a date she´s getting. No.. there´s a lot more she has to endure before anything like that could  happen! Go ahead and get yours. And read about Disaster Diaries..

P.S. When I got it, it was free from amazon :)

SwitchedI started the book wondering if I even wanted to keep reading it. Not because it wasn´t good or badly written. No. The thing was that the idea of the story, the paranormal twist was something i had never read of before and I was not sure I was interested. But I decided to give it a chance and it was so worth it!

I do not want to tell you what the book is about, but if you like YA and paranormal but you are bored to the usual types, vampires, weres, angels..give this one a try! Or even if you don´t like YA and paranormal, maybe you´ll enjoy this one because it´s different! And also the cover, ain´t it beautiful! And if you do choose to read this, don´t quit in the beginning, it took me a while to get used to the idea.

I really liked the prologue of this book, it hooked me right away before I started to doubt anything. Took me about 5 chapters to get used to it. The Trylle was strange different for me. And then almost out of nowhere I noticed the book was a really quick read and I could not stop reading and was rooting for some of the characters. When I finished the first book I really wanted to continue to the second book, but didn´t have it with me. There was definitely something quite hot about a couple in this book, and I liked it :)

Garion has been raised by his aunt Pol, a calm peasant life. He does not believe in magic. One day a certain storyteller comes to meet them and makes them leave their home. Garion does not understand what is happening..he just knows that after living in peace and quiet he is now taken across the lands to places he has never been to before.

Long ago the storyteller told that the evil God Torak had driven men and Gods into war. A sorcerer, Belgarath claimed an Orb that protects men. At least as long as it lays in Riva..

It has been too long since I last read them. But I do remember liking them a lot!

BOOK REVIEW Asking for Trouble

Asking for TroubleAsking for Trouble
by Elizabeth Young
Originally published 2000
Publisher: William Morrow & Company
Chick Lit, Romance

4 stars

So this book is about a thirty-year-old Sophie. She is not married, does not have a boyfriend, so she sort of ends up inventing one. It starts out as a little white lie to her mother. But then her parents starts asking her to bring him to meet them! By various discussions she finally gives in and promises to bring her "Dominic" to her sisters wedding so she hires a man from an escort agency to play this Dominic she has invented. You might guess that not everything goes as planned..but how it turns out, you´ll have to find out yourself!

Liked the beginning a lot, thought it was funny. Liked the end bit as well. In the middle there was maybe a part too long where I kept waiting for something to happen, or something more. Don´t get me wrong it was not bad or anything. I would have given 3,5 stars if possible, maybe. Well anyway ended up with four stars. It made me smile a lot, laugh a little as well. Quite easy to read. At some parts I felt glued to the book for wanting to read and read and read. But it did not last for the whole book (not the middle). Light reading, fitted perfectly for a summer read for me. Just what I needed right now! In the end there were some pretty electric moments between two characters that I quite enjoyed! So nothing special, but enjoyable, a light and easy read.

P.S. You might know the story from the movie The Wedding Date.


I went to a few book stores today and this is what I saw, the Black Dagger Brotherhood Finnish editions! I have not read the books but I have got to say that these actually make me really want to read them! I have not seen this nice covers on these books before.
