Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I love this book. Wait, no… I love this book trilogy.

If you like demons, romance and excitement I totally recommend you to read these books. Roth always brings a grin to my face and, at several times, even made me laugh out loud. He’s got a wicked tongue (and quite a pervy mind.)

The writer-part of me is seriously jealous of Jennifer L. Armentrout and her way of expressing her characters’ thoughts. Just small details, like Layla saying “Holy granola bar.” instead of actually swearing. She really captures all the different characters, not only in their personalties, but also in their speech.

This book ended with such a cliffhanger and I am so freaking happy I already ordered the third (and last) book because I can’t wait to find out what happens next. I almost felt like crying over that cliffhanger. Almost.

I lost myself the moment I found you. – my favorite quote from the first book, White Hot Kiss.

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

Just finished reading the epilogue – I admit that I usually don’t read either epilogues nor prologues, but some books are just too good to skip them – and I have one thing to say. Fucking finally! For you who have read the books you know what I mean and for all you who hasn’t… read and you shall learn!

I absolutely love The Mortal Instruments. Both the story in itself but also Cassandra Clare’s way to tell it. She has a way of pulling you in and making you feel like you’re not just reading about Clary and Jace and everyone else, but that you’re actually part of the whole world. Shadowhunters, Downworlders and demons all seem totally realistic. I love being able to escape my mundane life for a while and join in on the demon-hunting instead.

For anyone who doesn’t know City of Glass is the third book in the series.

Personally I don’t really do favorites. But, I grew up reading Harry Potter, and let’s just say I’m just as stuck reading these as I were then. Also, I talk to the characters. If that’s not proof of how much I enjoy reading about them and care about them I don’t know what is.
