Post-Petrol World of the plotFallen and Ever At first I thought that Jack and Sky s relationship was similar with Luce and Daniel and Ever and Damen relationships but I was wrong and I didn t see it

Bliss father came Yeah I like it and will still read the next books I think it s time for me to read a Vampire story told by a Filipina author This book was a massive mental battle for me between the decent parts The Adjustments of the plot notice I say PLOT not book and the horrendousnessf the rest Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 Volume 1 : New Rules of the book Okay let me put this bluntly Blue Bloods stunkFirstf all the story was not believable Not because it included a pack f civilized vampires that were conveniently all wealthy and living in New York City Because the characters reactions were so bviously fabricated that I rolled my eyes than Nara Leão: Uma Biografia once while reading Schuyler forne Her character is ridiculously predictable Introducing the average main character in these crappy chick lit mysteries A young girl who dresses like a street urchin but is still stunningly beautiful Uh huh Riiiiight Because you see those all Shining Star: The Anna May Wong Story over the place Her tragic situation parents dead and gone That snly been done in EVERY FAIRY TALE EVER WRITTEN SINCE THE GRIMM BROTHERS I mean come ON people Oh and then there s the Mate Me [If You May] (The Millennium Wolves, other main annoying factor the endless descriptionsf clothes hair furniture nutsall bragging in a not so subtle way about how great rich people have it I was so bored through the descriptions From Plassey to Partition and After of lavish hotels expensive gowns antiue furnitureI thought I was going to drown in the endless drivelMaybe if you re a really big fanf vampires and many are Tito Santana's Tales from the Ring or you like reading about the livesf millionaires you ll be able to get by reading this without TOTAL disgust But if you re like me you ll hate it Just walk away This series is basically Gossip Girl meets Twilight Melissa de la Cruz is bviously a great authorHowever she does "not follow through with this series She spends time talking about designer labels and what "follow through with this series She spends time talking about designer labels and what elite are wearingthan she does building up the plot I felt completely let down because many people had suggested this series to meHaving said thatI still want to know what happens which means I will give Melissa de la Cruz a second chance by reading the second installment f this series Melissa de la Cruz writes well but this book is lacking in the plot So I was reading a Cracked article a little while ago It told me that you get addicted to pop music because it sets Tropico del Cancro off the pleasure centref your brain Cracked also told me that your brain derives pleasure from particularly predictable music because your brain enjoys predicting things and enjoys being right even Finally humanity s explanation for NickelbackNo seriously look at thisLook at this photographEverytime I do it makes me How did Owned our eyes get so redAnd what the hell isn Joey s And this is where I grew upI think the present L'arte di Mœbius owner fixed it I never knew we d ever went withoutThe second floor is hard for sneaking Your welcome by the way for all that brain crack I just gave youNow despite the fact that that article isnly 60% exaggerated bullshit you must agree that s fairly good for a Cracked article I strongly believe there IS something to that predictablility factor that makes things enjoyable to ur brains which explains about 90% f the YA Paranormal genreBlue Bloods is brain crack at it s core Yet I gave it three stars 90% Five Busy Beavers of the YA Paranormal genreBlue Bloods is brain crack at it s core Yet I gave it three stars CheckTeenagers CheckExclusive vampire school CheckDanger CheckVampire hotty Well this gets a merit check for the ATTEMPT at a vampire hottyLove triangle CheckThis book was painfully corny and the writing wasn t that greatIf you ve readne YA paranormal then you ve pretty much read them allThe Fratello clima chetati... only reason thisne got 3 stars1 Because it actually tried hard to have an The Invisible Arab original storylinemystery even if both ended up nonsensical2 The very end with Jack That was actually satisfyingOtherwise keep walking people Nothing to see here This book is so fucking stupid that I lost I points while reading it Thenly reason

i didn t 
didn t it was for the joke material Because seriously this book has to be a joke rightThe premise had some potential vampires who came Dream of Wings overn the Mayflower come into their vampireyness at age 15 and are reincarnated Duck's Vacation over andver again There are exactly 400 The Cats In Krasinski Square of them andur special snowflake is a new O Guarda do Pomar one Oh no Not a New Soul again Sof course the powers that be are suspicious The Green Mountain Boys of snowflake anyoneOur special snowflake s name is Schuyler That s right Schuyler I know right I m so sickf girls named Schuyler We had like 6 f them in my homeroom class in schoolSo f course Snowflake goes to an exclusive school that Билет за Транай only the richestf all rich kids go to And Bed of Nails of course she is anutcast who is suddenly noticed by the hottest jock in school And Curveball: The Remarkable Story of Toni Stone the First Woman to Play Professional Baseball in the Negro League of course she has a boy best friend who is secretly in love with her Andf course there is a mean girl club that hates her And Seized Seduced of course there is a modeling casting call at her school that allf the girls go to but they pick Schuyler to be the next supermodel as she just happens to be walking by because she s soooooooo beautifulI mean come Indecency on those things are just a given DuhBut the best partf this book The thing that will give you mind numbing pain that Lata Mangeshkar only killing allf these asshole characters can alleviate The endless and I mean pages and pages Pencarrow of designer label names that are listed We know what every character is wearing at all times each piece underwear included and what designer made it And the ridiculous descriptionsf Frankenstein in Baghdad opulence that we are supposed to believe that these vampire teens live in Really It doesn t matter that they are 15 you will serve them cocktails from the bar if they are rich Oh and don t forget the heated almonds Rich bitches love warm nuts. When the Mayflower set sail in 1620 it carriedn board the men and women who would shape America Miles Standish; John Alden; Constance Hopkins But some among the Pilgrims were not pure f heart; they were not escaping religious persecution Indeed they were not even human They were vampiresThe vampires assimilated uickly into the New World Rising to levels f enormous power wealth and influence they were the celeb. .
Blue BloodsCaptain Exposition showing up two scenes later to let you know what it is that just happened This is a much stronger failing in Blue Bloods than in Masuerade and I have even higher hopes for the next book The characters start Matematica 7 - 3b: Ciclo Egb out as pure caricature and maybe I m projecting too muchnto them but I really think they grow by Masuerade into something much believable and much less pastiche There are some kickass world building and relationships set up here accompanied by weak storytelling and ften shoddy character development It wants to be so much than it is and I believe that de la Cruz has the raw creativity to make it happen but she keeps getting held back by lack f craft which I think could be remedied by practice and a really hand holdy editor and the tendency to rely Civil-military Relations In Pakistan: From Zufikar Ali Bhutto To Benazir Bhutto on tropesf all the teen books about rich bitchy girls and their fabulous empty lives etc that have taken ver the teen aisle at Target These characters are interesting because they re not empty that they have a larger purpose and a larger life beyond who s carrying what handbag so when de la Cruz resorts to the style f character development through accessories it s a huge letdown This book had the potential to be amazing affluent teens learn in their fifteenth year that they are reincarnated vampires who will never really die Over the Top only come back to reenter another cyclef life unfortunately it was terrible One gets the impression that La Cruz either rushed through this r had a constant bout f writers block The writing is forced and trite and things that should have been The Secret Kept from the Italian/My Bought Virgin Wife/Claimed for the Billionaire's Convenience/The Spaniard's Untouched Bride ommitted why do we need a descriptionf every single item Sikandar of food throughout the bookand some parts were montaged where they should have been described in detail like when they foundut they were blue bloods and if I hear Country one designer clothing reference I m going to punch somethingAlso it s not a good thing if the name Schuyler is the most normal in the entire book Bliss Perfection really If your going to have your book set in a mdern realistic setting make it seem like it could possibly happen also the characterf Schuyler is much too stereotypical for my tastes A beautiful gothic rphan utcast becomes a vampire How Denali Dreams original She had no character faults at all which makes for a very bland boring heroine It also took La Cruz 248 pages to get to the frickin point where the plot starts to well exist Until then the word vampire isn t even mentioned and though we all knew what was goingn the fact was presented as though it were a huge surprise which insults my intelligence thankyouverymuchFortunately the last fifty pages were much better then the first 56 Hollywood Renaissance of the book and though no definate conclusion is reached I don t feel inclined to pick up the next in the series OkayI have to drag my soap boxuter sckrrrkk keep in mind this is my El Cura. (Caso de Incesto). opinion and I don t wish toffend anyone Alright I began to read junior fiction and young adult books to cut Il Mago out the undesirable sex scenes and vulgar language Well I have had to stop reading highly entertaining young adult books becausef the sex and language I am highly disappointed in the trend now a days Is it any wonder teen pregnancy is a problem as well as substance abuse and vulgar language if this kind Impostress of crap is being placed in these books Shamen these authors for putting this kind Ego, Hunger and Aggression of stuff in their young adult books if you ve got to be dirty write for a sleazy paperback company insteadf slipping your loose morals into books that are allegedly for young adults If you want a clean cut book about vampiresdon t read this book If you re 18 Ritrovarsi or younger don t read this book I ve stepped down from my box and wish you a good day I absolutely hated this book HATED it I m not sure I ve ever been able to say that about a novel before but I can honestly say that about thisne Being a long Where to begin I ve been devouring a lot Antes Que Anoiteça of YA fiction lately especially thatf the supernatural kind and honestly I m running आषाढ़ का एक दिन outf avenues I d been putting The Savage Mind off the Blue Bloods novels because they just didn t interest me Well today I was bored so I picked this little gem up from the library It passed a few hours worthf my time Was it worth it Well I got some laughsThe book Fado And Other Stories opens with a massive cliche Which I suppose should have warned me and put meff reading the rest La casa nel vicolo of it but I like to finish what I begin and like I said I was bored Our main protagonist is Schuyler Van Alan Tiny black hair blue eyes absolutely gorgeous butf course completely unaware Gemini of it She dresses like a bag lady Well like a very lucky bag lady who ransacks the trash binsf wealthy socialites and has revolving credit at fancy consignment shops She has A Terrible Day onlyne friend Discourse on Voluntary Servitude. Tienne La Botie of course a boy named Oliver who isf course in love with her while she is Ebano of course completely unawaref how he feels about her Next cliche Everyone else at her prestigious private school ignores her Of course UNTILUntil La piccola ottantenne che cambiò tutte le regole one night when she sut with Oliver and she sees the ever popular and completely gorgeous Jack Force He flirts with her and she s completely confused by his sudden attention to her So you would think this eventually goes somewhere Not really Jack and Schuyler DO share a couple Constable Around the Green of scenes together but nothing all that great They kissnce but even that has a very strange vibe like it just shouldn t be happening Probably because there isn t a whole lot f build up They don t manage to kiss for long either because they re interrupted by Jack "s twin sister Mimi The Jack and Mimi storyline is where things started to get "twin sister Mimi The Jack and Mimi storyline is where things started to get and make less and less senseJack s and Mimi s relationship is very uickly revealed to be than what the average brother and sister share Creep factor through the roof at this point I mean I guessed right away that it was some kind f reincarnation thing but EWW Come n And Mimi s a total bitch but not even in a believable way I got the feeling I was supposed to really hate her but I couldn t There just wasn t enough there Schuyler has no parents Her dad is dead her mom s been in a coma "since she was a baby and she s "she was a baby and she s neglectfully supervised by her grandmother Cordelia Cordelia is a throw away character She exists within the book merely for the sole purpose f providing a uick source f information for Schuyler then she s killed ff Let s just call her Tissue from now Thérèse Raquin on Schuyler blew her nosen her and her literary mission was accomplished So I trudged through the first half Women in Therapy or sof this book wondering why in the hell I was still reading since all I kept hearing about was how rich these people are and the kinds Il Poeta of clothes they wear the hotels they stay in the food they eat etc But then I got to the good stuff Wait for it The Blue Bloods are nothing than a groupf 400 fallen angels whose punishment for betraying God was being condemned to live their immortal lives Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Vol. 3 on earth until they ve reached a zen like statef contrition At least that s their mission to be allowed back into the garden after paying penance for their misbehavior So they don t kill humans Not at all in fact they try to help us Did you know that all the beautiful and the humanitarian things in New York City are all thanks to rich angel space vampires Anyway they re reincarnated and at the age My Body-Mine of 15 start undergoing their transformation to vampire Okay So yeah Jack and Mimi They re blood bound Apparently this is some freaky BS wherein two souls are born as twins but then through a transitionne twin would assume the role f spouse This was to preserve the family s fortune A whole new twist n keepin it in the family Anyone else feel like vomiting Intellectually reading this book is akin to flipping through a toddler s board book Not a whole lot going The Noble Guardian on De La Cruz attempted to weave in some historical references by tying the whole Roanoke settlement mystery into the angel vampires story but she apparently expects that nonef her readers have ever heard Ipso Facto of it before Nonef the teen characters in the book have We re supposed to believe that these kids are attending this super exclusive private school and NONE The John Wyndham Omnibus of them have ever heardf Roanoke r Croatoan Sure she tries to tie that up nicely by claiming The Committee head honcho angel vampires have altered the memories f their Comandante Che: Guerrilla Soldier, Commander, and Strategist, 1956-1967 own so they don t remember Roanoke but these kids do not exist in a vacuum they would.

Oh Mr Peanut you are so hotThe nly good news about this book is that it s The Graduate only a couple hundred pages long I am painfully painfully addicted Not entirely in spitef the trashiness because a small part Wisp of a Thing of me finds the constant detailed descriptionsf everyone s Monkey taming outfit deeply entertaining hi Laurell K Hamilton for the Gossip Girl set but if you dig beyond the uneven pacing the telling insteadf showing and the constant references to everyone s extreme wealth there is some very very interesting mythology being crafted here with some deeply twisted and intriguing relationships as a result spoilers for both this book and Masuerade the seuelLet s see rotating 3rd person POV between three main female characters Schuyler I Was Spock: Leonard Nimoy ourld money but now broke semi Cosa hanno in testa i nostri figli. Apprendimento e memoria nello sviluppo del bambino orphanutcast at Extremely Posh School Mimi The Dawning of a New Age ourld money and new money and unbelievably rich popular girl who is The ueen Bee

different ends An Entirely Synthetic Fish: How Rainbow Trout Beguiled America and Overran the World of the EPS social spectrum but really EPS is almost irrelevant to this story Yes they re all vampires Yes fifteen to twentyne is when they come into their vampirehood Yes being a vampire makes them fast strong beautiful etc etc etc and they re not allergic to sun Blah blah standard vampirecakes blah blah Here s where the mythology gets interesting Initially it s just that vampires are souls that exist beyond the mortal shell and the Turning Age is when the vampires first start remembering their past lives and incidentally needing to drink blood but what ever that is like sooooo irrelevant So like really Old Money The current crop Hunter Hunted of characters camever Archivio Per Lo Studio Delle Tradizioni Popolari, Volume 13 on the Mayflower That s all well enough certainly an interesting twist but what I like about it even is that de la Cruz takes itne step further the vampires Ricettario amoroso di una pasticciera in fuga original souls Angels Cast down to the mortal sphere not hell when they followed Lucifer So layern all sorts Lo strano caso del barista scomparso of Biblically inspired angeldemon stuff too So vampires Blue Bloods literally hur hur drink Red Blood and absorb somef the Red Blood s soul The Uber Bad Guys are Silver Bloods who drink Blue Bloods blood and absorb all A Part of Speech of that vampire s previous lives in addition to the individual livesf the Red Bloods the Blue Blood has drunk making them v powerful and v crazy Lucifer Skulduggery Pleasant: The End of the World of course is the ultimate Silver Blood See Intriguing More than your normal teen vampire book What make it even deliciously awesome is the bonds and relationships that de la Cruz has set up among the angelsvampiresteens all inhabitingne body Mimi is soul bonded to Jack who in this lifetime is her twin brother You start to realize something hinky is up when Mimi starts having memories The Year After of Jack as her groom at various weddings throughout the ages And the way it s played I think you re kindf supposed to root for Mimi and Jack to get together Yes Jack is also drawn to Schuyler And Quiet Flows the Don ourstensible heroine and it turns Sailing Promise: Around the World on a Catamaran out that he s been drawn tother women notably Schuyler s mother throughout the ages but he keeps coming back to Mimi He is Mimi s ne I was going to say humanizing point but that s not uite right saving grace and the nly times Mimi is not being almost entirely repulsive is when she s thinking about how much she loves Jack Schuyler s mother is soul bonded to Jack and Mimi s father who in this instance is her brother and the reason there has been this great schism between them is because Schuyler s mom left Charles for a human and had the affront to not Hunter's Moon only marry a human but get knocked up byne ie Schuyler And then In the closing pages Prince of Lies of Masuerade somewhere in all that she may have had time to get knocked up by Blair s dad producing Blair Because see Schuyler s mom is Gabrielle and Jack and Mimi s dad is Michael and they are thenly two Untainted Slow Dance or whatever angels who voluntarily fell inrder to stay with their parents an angel I m not familiar with and the Metatron Now I picture Schuyler s grandfather as Alan Rickman This is not a bad thing And then L'arcobaleno negli occhi of course there s the Red BloodBlue Blood relationship thing The metaphorf drinking blood sex is a little heavy handed Mimi is precocious starts drinking early and drinks around a lot but the mythology is set up so that it s a meaningful thing that Blue Bloods are bonded to those from whom they drink and it is forbidden not to mention in extremely poor taste to drain Postcards from Vermont: A Social History, 1905-1945 one dry to the pointf death Then there are the I can t remember what they re called but essentially they re Watchers Families trained to serve as left hand men I m not sure if that was a deliberate fumble Fire On The Mountain on de la Cruz s partr not Polska of the Blue Bloods andf course Schuyler has a male Red Blood Watcher who has been trained since birth to serve her who s been her best friend forever and who she s now noticing is pretty cute as well as tasty looking

Anthology of demand that Schuyler drink from Oliver which completely changes their relationship as well as being kindf forbidden and naughty Are you getting the bloodsex thing yet Are you Because if not Blair drinks from some guy A Novel Without Lies on a photo shoot in the Caribbean and tells Schuyler not to share the insert random Latin term here for bloodsuckin much like languisement in the Jacueline Carey books really just means blowjob with any random person because it really does mean something and she shouldn t do it lightlyWhat photo shoot Ah yes the slightly ridiculous subplotf Schuyler and Blair getting chosen to be models for this Wyrm one fashion companywned by a fellow Blue Blood cause they re all rich and gorgeous see and wildly successful which makes Mimi violently jealous because she s the It Girl and the I Am Ocilla onlyne allowed to have a semi naked billboard in Times Suare gosh Yes It is that ridiculous Mimi loves nothing better than to deny people pleasure
