What A Wicked, Wicked World !!!!

What better place to start a series of five books than on a cruise ship! That is exactly what I did, my teen stepped up to recommend some nice light reading for me and "Wicked" by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie` is what I got. Now before I say a word, I spent the first few chapters of book one thinking this was the book the Broadway show was based on, okay so you have your chuckle for the day ...let's get to it!

Book One & Two, Witch & Curse , I thought it started off kind of jumbled. The beauty of these books is they are packed with flashbacks to substantiate the characters and their actions, however, it does take a little bit of acclimating to the style. Of course, it helps when you don't expect to be in OZ. The story is focused on three teen witches, Holly Cathers & her twin cousins Amanda and Nicole. Naturally, this story would not be remotely exciting without "Bad Boy" Warlock brothers Jer & Eli Deveraux, who together with their dear old Dad Micheal, plan to take over the Supreme Coven and snuff out the Cathers (Cahors) bloodline. I was fully in sinc with their writing style by the end of book one.

Book Three & Four, Legacy & Spellbound , here we travel deeper into the dark secrets of Witchcraft. These two stories are loaded with intrigue and violence of the supernatural kind. I would have to warn off young teens, as the content may be too much for them, but, since I'm an adult and think a few well placed deaths can keep things interesting, I say go for it! Here we will also see some new romances begin to form and great new characters introduced. I especially like Philippe and Pablo, who are male witches from a sect in Europe, they stumble upon Nicole and are compelled to protect her. Inadvertently, she is taken against her will leaving this group to unite with her twin and cousin in search of her together.

Book Five, Resurrection, honestly there are so many back-stories, spells, possessions, and rescues that you will barely have time to catch your breath. I do warn you, if you don't enjoy a lot of detail or fanciful exploits this is not for you! I would like to take a moment to focus on the beautiful continuity in the use of poetic introduction for every chapter. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the mental pictures depicted, I was impressed with the way these poems placement enhanced the look of the beginning of each chapter. Well done ladies!! I will not spoil the ending for you, let's just say DRAMA to the extreme, played out to a most satisfactory ending! I do love a good supernatural/thriller/love story.

Well hello there &gt

Well hello there >:D Last night we were at a fancy dress halloween party, in which I was FORCED to go as a....Ugh....Pink Lady from Grease. Oh God. But what was worse was that my parents and two of their friends went as Abba. Which has scarred me for LIFE. And anyone who couldn't guess they were Abba, were told that "They got lost on the way home from Glastonbury." Those people will not sleep for as long as they live. I also had no shoes. Because the ones I were wearing were VERY painful, so I threw them into a hedge, as you do, and ran about all night with freezing feet and drunk parents... It was GREAT. And tonight, I'm hopefully going to a firework display with Druna and Shakra and dressing as Jack Sparrow (WOO!:D) And then trick or treating (But most likely tricking. I trick A LOT of people :D ) So I'll let you know how those terrifying events go! :D Have a good Halloween, Mr Dr Derek Landy Golden God-ness Skulduggereh sir! :D

Which one? Sushi Zan

Which one? Sushi Zanmai? Hehe. That day, it was a little bit off sardntad because we ordered sushis that I so happened to have tasted better ones. It's really nice still, overall. Wouldn't mind going back for the 3rd or 4th time. Paiseh, I am very lazy to type Chinese, takes me 5X longer just to type the same message.
