Twilight / Stephenie Meyer

 I must admit, I'm more than a little late to the party... But I don't think that really matters. This book was so hard to put down, I read it every chance I got. To be honest, I didn't think I was going to like Twilight. I thought it wasn't going to live up to all the hype.
                                                    WARNING SPOILERS BELOW

 I overall enjoyed the book, even though there were just a few details I wasn't crazy about. For example, I didn't like that Edward or Jacob, had so much control over Bella. Edward and Bella's relationship did seem to be a bit rushed to me, but that's easily overlooked. All in a time span of two days, they had their first kiss, and then met each others families.
      The major plot of the tracker, happens so fast, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I wanted to cry and scream. Especially in The Angel, when Bella almost dies. I don't think I really expected Bella to wake up and question why Edward didn't transform her. I mean, you literally almost died and he saved your life... You should be thanking him.
   Then Prom, that was amazing. Jacob hinting that he liked Bella, oh boy I can just see it now. Edward and Bella are life though, I really like them together.

The Ruby Circle / Full Bloodlines Series Review

 SPOILER WARNING

Wow, just wow. I'm at a loss for words, this series was beyond exceptional. I can't believe that it's already over. It seems like just yesterday Sydney had arrived at Palm Springs, now she's living with Adrian in Northern Maine.   I'm sad to leave this series behind, I loved it. Maybe even more than I loved Vampire Academy
   The Ruby Circle was an amazing closure to the Bloodlines Series.  The epilogue, blew my mind. It was absolutely perfect. As much as I hate to see them leave, I'm glad that Adrian and Sydney are now able to be together. I wanted them together from the moment they officially met in Bloodlines. They've been through thick and thin together, and I'm just really happy that they're now able to have peace and live a somewhat normal life. They deserve it.
   I was so worried for Sydney in Silver Shadows, the reunion with Adrian made my heart melt. While their wedding may have been rushed, it was perfect. I don't think I would have had it any other way. This book had me on the edge of my seat at all times, I finished it in a day. While it was a short book, it was perfect.
    Honestly, I expected the alchemists to have Jill in The Ruby Circle. Her being kidnapped by Alicia and held by the warriors, was completely unexpected. In my mind, the alchemists were the bad guy, and they still are. Although, I do have a soft spot for Stanton, I feel like there is more to her then meets the eye. When Sydney made the request to trade intel for Jill's rescue and amnesty for everyone, I didn't think Stanton would go through with it at first. I think she understands Sydney and isn't corrupt like the other alchemists, but I could be wrong.
   I would have liked to learn a bit more, about Declan to be perfectly honest. But as long as he is safe, that's all that matters. Sydney and Adrian are now a little family, it makes me want to cry they're so perfect. Against all odds, they survived. Their situation might not be ideal for most people, but they're living. In the end, all that matters is they're able to be together, and be safe with each other. I can't believe that this is the last time, we'll ever experience their point of views, yet I wouldn't trade this ending for another.
   The Ruby Circle and the Bloodlines Series, gets a 10/10. There was not a time, when it disappointed me. It was flawless, and may have just stole the crown and become my favorite series! Just kidding, but it's pretty high on my list of favorites now. This series was like a drug, and I could not get enough. Thank You Richelle Mead, you never cease to amaze me.
