Series : House of Night
Authors : PC Cast and Kristen Cast

Summary :   The four books in the House of Night series (Marked, Betrayed, Chosen and Untamed) as well as the upcoming Hunted (March 10), follow the life of Zoey Redbird. Zoey has been marked as a fledgling vampire who is unable to live apart from adult vamps for any long period of time. So she attends a new school, House of Night, where she realizes her powers are far above the norm. While Zoey has conflicts and friendships with other fledgelings, their is a problem. Humans, vampires and other fledglings are dying. Who is it? Vamps? The Uber-religeous group her step-dad fronts? Or something else entirely?

Reveiw : Not bad, the mythological basis is good. The vampire mythology is portrayed well. The characters are really diverse. However sometimes they seem unreal. They also have unique vocabularies. You can only say ho-bag so many times in one sentence, Zoey.  Also, she overdoes it on the relationships. Her friends are cute though.

Rating : 3 Stars

The Bishop's Daughter

Got this from librarything. ❤

TITLE : The Bishops Daughter

AUTHOR : Tiffany L. Warren

REVIEW : The Bishop’s Daughter follows Emoni, the eldest daughter of Bishop Prentiss; as well as Derrin Bainbridge, her love interest. Emoni is the ever reliable, girl-next-store who sometimes tries too hard not to be a “wild PK” (preacher’s kid). Darrin is a handsome and together writer but living off his parent’s money. He wants the story of a lifetime but is unwilling to betray the Prentiss Family, that had brought him into their lives. The two navigate their feelings for each other while trying to balance their futures. 

The story is beautiful and not-at-all preachy. It is enthralling, I took this for some “bathtub reading” and read the whole thing in one sitting. The character’s are relatable, and the book leaves you with a peaceful satisfied feeling. The blog entries are cute too.

RATING: 4/5

PS  : The trustee is totally creepy.
