Blessed Yule Everyone!

Posted by Amanda Masters on 2:25:00 pm

BLESSED YULE EVERYONE! I hope you are are ready for your holiday traditions whatever they may be! Me and my family being Pagan celebrate Yule and with it the tradition of the Oak king and the Holly King and the battle to bring back the light. The Yule Solstice is the day when the we have longer days and shorter nights. The Holly King (also known as Santa) and the Oak King are twin brothers one light, one dark. They battle two times a year to keep the light in balance at Yule it is the Oak king who wins and the light returns and the Holly king retreats till the battle in the midsummer solstice where he will win and we will have longer nights and shorter days. When the battle is won the Oak king wins the hand of the Maiden Goddess and the Sun God is Born. So I hope you all have a have plenty of light in your lives and many many blessings this Yule! (the photos were taken by me and are my children reenacting the Yule time battle.)

After Obsession by Carrie Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just finished reading this book and it was AWESOME! its been awhile since I read a good ghost story and this one was the perfect find. Carrie Jones is a wonderful Author her books are full of intrigue and mystery and no one writes supernatural like Steven E. Wedel!

The book is about Aimee and Alan have who have unusual pasts and secrets they prefer to keep hidden. Aimee's deceased mother struggled with mental illness and hallucinations, and Aimee thinks it could be hereditary. After all, she sees a shadowy river man where there isn't one. And then there was that time she and her best friend Courtney tried to conjure a spirit with a Ouija board ...Alan is Courtney's cousin. His family moved to Maine when Courtney's father went missing. It's not just Alan's dark good looks that make him attractive. He is also totally in touch with a kind of spiritual mysticism from his Native American heritage. And it's not long before Aimee has broken up with her boyfriend ...But it's not Aimee or Alan who is truly haunted - it's Courtney. In a desperate plea to find her father, Courtney invites a demonic presence into her life. Together, Aimee and Alan must exorcise the ghost, before it devours Courtney - and everything around her.

WW4BB Presents: Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My favorite Vampire Books Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy! I totally love the story of Rose and Dimitri I don't think there is a love story quite like theirs or quite as powerful! I like the spin off as well it has so far proved to be as compelling a story as the vampire academy and I look forward to more books! I recommend these both to you all as they are the greatest! the Vampire Academy has 6 books in the series and Bloodlines only has the 2 so far.

In the first Vampire Academy Book St. Vladimirs Academy isn't just any boarding school its a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimirs the very place where they're most in danger. . . .
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy's ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi the worlds fiercest and most dangerous vampires make Lissa one of them forever.



Rose Hathaway's got serious guy trouble. Her gorgeous tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason has a huge crush on her, and she keeps getting stuck in her best friend Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian. (So not cool).

Then a massive Strigoi attack puts St. Vladimir's on high alert, and the Academy crawls with Guardians--including the legendary Janine Hathaway...Rose's formidable, long-absent mother. The Strigoi are closing in, and the Academy's not taking any risks. This year, St. Vlad's annual holiday ski trip is mandatory.

But the glittering winter landscape and the posh Idaho resort only provide the illusion of safety. When three students run away to strike back against the deadly Strigoi, Rose must join forces with Christian to rescue them. Only this time, Rose--and her heart--are in more danger than she ever could have imagined...


It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since making her first Strigoi kills, Rose hasn't been feeling quite right. She's having dark thoughts, behaving erratically, and worst of all...might be seeing ghosts.

As Rose questions her sanity, new complications arise. Lissa has begun experimenting with her magic once more, their enemy Victor Dashkov might be set free, and Rose's forbidden relationship with Dimitri is starting to heat up again. But when a deadly threat no one saw coming changes their entire world, Rose must put her own life on the line--and choose between the two people she loves most.

Rose Hathaway's life will never be the same.

The recent attack on St. Vladimir's Academy devastated the entire Moroi world. Many are dead. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse. A rare tattoo now adorns Rose's neck, a mark that says she's killed far too many Strigoi to count. But only one victim matters . . . Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honoring her life's vow to protect Lissa—her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess—or, dropping out of the Academy to strike out on her own and hunt down the man she loves. She'll have to go to the ends of the earth to find Dimitri and keep the promise he begged her to make. But the question is, when the time comes, will he want to be saved?

Now, with everything at stake—and worlds away from St. Vladimir's and her unguarded, vulnerable, and newly rebellious best friend—can Rose find the strength to destroy Dimitri? Or, will she sacrifice herself for a chance at eternal love?


Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong…

After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and he's out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he's silenced her...forever.

It all comes down to now.

Murder. Love. Jealousy. And the ultimate sacrifice.

The Queen is dead and the Moroi world will never be the same. Now, with Rose awaiting wrongful execution and Lissa in a deadly struggle for the royal throne, the girls find themselves forced to rely upon enemies and to question those they thought they could trust...

But what if true freedom means sacrificing the most important thing of all?

Each other.

Dragon's Oath by P.C. Cast
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The House of Night story told from Dragon Lankford point of view and his life story. How him and Anastasia first met and why he strayed from his warrior path. This was a great book and I hope there are more I enjoyed hearing about how they met and how the professors were as young fledglings. A for sure read if you are a house of Night fan!

WW4BB Presents: Strange Angels Series by Lili St Crow

Posted by Amanda Masters on 8:26:00 pm

Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just finished the fifth and final book in the series the reckoning. I can't believe the series is over I just want it to keep going on and on! There are 5 books in the series and they are all wonderful!

View all my reviews


In the first book Strange Angels, Dru Anderson has what her grandmother calles “the touch.” (Comes in handy when you’re travelling from town to town with your dad, hunting ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional zombie.) Then her dad turns up dead—but still walking—and Dru knows she’s next. Even worse, she’s got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever—or whoever— is hunting her?

Then in the Second book Betrayals Her parents are long gone, her best friend is a werewolf, and she's just learned that the blood flowing through her veins isn't entirely human. (So what else is new?)
Now Dru is stuck at a secret New England Schola for other teens like her, and there's a big problem - she's the only girl in the place. A school full of cute boys wouldn't be so bad, but Dru's killer instinct says that one of them wants her dead. And with all eyes on her, discovering a traitor within the Order could mean a lot more than social suicide. . .
Can Dru survive long enough to find out who has betrayed her trust - and maybe even her heart?

Then as if things couldn't get bad enough in the third book Jealousy It's a good thing Dru Anderson is fast. Because the sucker chasing her isn't slowing down and he won't rest until he has tasted her blood and silenced her heart . . .

Dru's best friend, Graves, and her strange and handsome savior, Christophe, are ready to help her take on the ultimate evil. But will their battle for Dru's heart get in the way of her survival?

And when thing were looking up they all come crashing back down again in the fourth book Defiance when Dru's worst fears have come true and Sergej kidnaps her best friend Graves, she'll have to go on a suicidal rescue mission to bring him back in one piece.
That is, if she can put all of Christophe's training to good use, defeat her mother's traitor, Anna, once and for all, and manage to survive another day. . .

And Finally in the fifth and final book Reckoning, Nobody expected Dru Anderson to survive this long. Not Graves. Not Christophe. Not even Dru. She''s battled killer zombies, jealous djamphirs, and bloodthirsty suckers straight out of her worst nightmares. But now that Dru has bloomed into a full-fledged svetocha - rare, beautiful, and toxic to all vampires - the worst is yet to come.

Because getting out alive is going to cost more than she's ever imagined. And in the end, is survival really worth the sacrifice?

DRU ANDERSON''S NOT AFRAID OF THE DARK.
BUT SHE MAYBE SHE SHOULD BE!
