Blurb: I stuck my finger under the edge of the paper and jerked it under the tape. ‘Shoot,’ I muttered when the paper sliced my finger. A single drop of blood oozed from the tiny cut. It all happened very quickly then. ‘No!’ Edward roared … Dazed and disoriented, I looked up from the bright red blood pulsing out of my arm – and into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly ravenous vampires.
For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is more dangerous than Bella ever could have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of an evil vampire but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realise their troubles may just be beginning …
I enjoyed the first one, but this one was a bit disappointing. I found this book a bit girly and silly. Edward leaves Bella and then she suddenly becomes obsessed with Jacob and it got a bit annoying. However, saying that there were some good bits to it, for instance the ending and right at the beginning, but the middle was very under-whelming. I did like that there were loads of new characters (vampires) introduced into this book and Jake’s secret was pretty cool though it was kind of obvious what it was and it took Bella absolutely ages to guess which annoyed me. I will read the rest of the series even though I was disappointed by this book as I was told that the last book (Breaking Dawn) is the best, so we shall see. I give this book a 6 out of 10 and aim it more at girls than boys, but by all means give it a read.

Prepare to be disappointed….
Harriet Manners knows many things.
She knows that toilet roll was invented by the Chinese in 600 AD.
She knows that a comet’s tail always points away from the sun.
And she knows that the average healthy heart beats 70 times per minute. Even when it’s broken.
But she knows nothing about making new friends at Sixth Form. Or why even her old friends seem to be avoiding her. And she knows even less about being a glittering supermodel success. Which she now is – apparently.
Now, I won’t say that I hate this book, but I definitely didn’t like it. I was really disappointed by this book as I loved the first 3 books but this one was a huge let down. I felt like Holly Smale had run out of ideas and decided to make Harriet a ‘superstar’. I feel like she should have ended it with Picture Perfect. However, I did like the ending because it was back to the usual style of the other books. I’m not entirely sure why I disliked it so much, but I did and my friend agrees as well that this is a big disappointment. I did like all the new characters for instance Jasper and India and you got to know more about Liv and Ananya who are Alexa’s henchmen (or partners in crime). I give this a 4 out of 10 and sadly would not recommend it to you. I am planning on reading the 5th book, but if it is rubbish, please tell me. And for those of you in the UK…
Happy Bonfire Night
Blurb: Penny has a secret.
Under the alias Girl Online, Penny blogs her hidden feelings about friendship, boys, high school drama, her crazy family, and the panic attacks that have begun to take over her life. When things go from bad to worse, her family whisks her away to New York, where she meets Noah, a gorgeous, guitar-strumming American. Suddenly Penny is falling in love – and capturing every moment of it on her blog.
But Noah has a secret, too, one that threatens to ruin Penny’s cover – and her closest friendship – forever.
Price: £12.99 (hardback edition) to expensive for my liking, so i wouldn’t bother getting the book.
Well, where to start?????
I am sure most of you guys who have read this book have only picked it up because it was written by Zoella, come on, it’s true isn’t it?! I do watch Zoella videos and i have to say, I was very disappointed. If you like these kind of love story novels with a plot twist, well i highly suggest that you read Geek Girl – check my other posts – it’s so much better and i kind of think there might have been a bit of copying going on. Other people say that it was ghostwritten – basically it means that Zoella came up with the idea and everything, but someone was there perfecting it and making sure it was perfect before it was published. I’m giving this book 3 out of 10 stars, I absolutely couldn’t stand it, by the end I was literally forcing myself to read it. This book is definitely aimed at girls and I really didn’t like it!!!! This is just my opinion though, I know loads of people who have loved this book. So if you like Zoella and girly cliché love stories, then this book is for you.
