The wishes series – (Saving Wishes, Second Hearts and Sand Jewels)

I liked this book mainly because of the fairy tales that they had. They intrigued not only Adam but also me :)..Whenever Charli starts saying something about a fairy, I wish I could read much faster sometimes. Next comes the bond between Alex and!! I thought why a brother would give up everything for a little girl, I have never come across such a guy yet. So, the book revealed it later, and I just started to go back to the conversations between Alex and Charli. What a lovely father who tried to keep his daughter safe and away from mischief but still understood her problems whenever she came up with one.

Saving Wishes was much faster than Second Hearts though. I never thought that Ryan is going to be such a wonderful character.

I didn’t like Sand Jewels much. I had a different opinion about Alex like shy, and down-to-earth person. In this book, it seemed like I didn’t even know that guy, it was wholly different. But it is just about how Gabrielle and Alex ended up together. This is kind of stand-alone book, so you don’t have to read this if you are planning to read the fourth book( which is not yet published).

Eagerly waiting for Storm Shells 🙂

I am gonna update two conversations that I liked the most under Short story/Extract categories.

Little Women

SPOILER Alert!!!

I loved this book because it contained lots of morals about life and marriage. I am sure everyone has something in the book to link with their life. A lovely mother caring for her four wonderful daughters and has the heart to take care of the neighbor too.

Each character is well formed. Meg so soft but still wishing to be rich, Jo and her boyish character, Beth and her love for her family, Amy and her ambitions. Of course out of everything, the relationship between Laurie and Mrs. March family is the best.

Everything went fine until Jo rejects Laurie’s proposal. I did expect it but I couldn’t go on reading as I know that I wouldn’t be seeing them together in the end of the book. I stopped reading the book for two days (so silly of me!!). I again started reading the book, then came the another blow, Beth losing her life. I hated the Scarlet fever. And when Amy and Laurie got married, that’s where I totally hated them. I felt like they are cheating Jo though that was not the case. But I didn’t stop reading this time because I was so eager to know about Jo. And the ending was the happiest.

The characters made me feel like they are moving around with me when I read it and that is the reason I couldn’t move on when Jo didn’t accept Laurie. One of my loved character, dying!! It is all too much to take.

Anyways, it was a great read. If you see this book, try to grab and read immediately. You wouldn’t feel sorry.

The Scary Mary Series

This is one awesome series that I started two weeks before and I just couldn’t stop reading it. The first book is free in iBooks and kindle. The next two are paid.

For me, the first book was not that scary. Actually, I felt laughing reading the conversations between the ghost and Mary and the reactions of Mary at times. She showed courage, love, fear and she is fun too.

The next two books are really scary and for best thrilling effect, read the book with lights switched off in the night ;). I liked all the characters. I didn’t like Vicky in the first, she turned from bad to good in second and friendly in third. And I started liking her too. All the characters has equal participation which I see rarely. And I never felt like hanging when the book ends though it is a series. It is almost like a novel. All the questions are always answered before the book ends which was really good. The third book had a suspense end but still got the answer about the most important person.

So, now am eagerly waiting for the fourth book hoping for the same thrilling.
