Review Monday Week 7

I hope you all had a good weekend
& for those of us in the U.K. I hope you are having a good bank holiday weekend.

This week I've got to review my favorite series of books.
I was meant to be review one but I ended up reading two.

Hubby has been really busy this weekend painting.
I'm going to make you wait till Wednesday to see where we are up to.
He has done an excellent job!
I love how it is looking.
The next job is the t.v. unit but 
that can wait a while.
I think we are going to paint it the same satin white
with a green hint on the doors and a green fabric behind the glass.

I have finished the Alien & UFO so come back tomorrow
for Tuesday's Patterns to see what it looks like.

Anyway onto my reviews.

The first is on book 3
Shadow Kiss
By Richelle Mead

I read mine on the kindle.
I purchased this myself & am receiving nothing in return.
All views expressed are my own.

This is by far the best book in the series yet!
I spent most of the time either laughing or crying!
I don't know what it is about the way Richelle writes
but I felt like I was in the story.
Things take a big twist in this book and the outcome isn't
what you want or expect.
I'm not going to give you loads of details because I want you to read the book for yourself.
Hubby couldn't stop laughing at my sobbing as I read this book.
The books are centered around 2 main characters (Rose & Lissa)

& their life at the Vampire Academy.

Rose is Dhampir (a bodyguard) &

Lissa is a Moroi (Vampire Princess)
There are many characters but you never feel that you don't know each one.
Richelle lets you get to know each one without it affecting the story.

Please if you love a Vampire book read this series.
I couldn't wait to read the next one.
I give this book 5 out of 5

Book 4
Blood Promise
By Richelle Mead

I read mine on the kindle.
I purchased this myself & am receiving nothing in return.
All views expressed are my own

I wondered how Richelle could top Shadow Kiss.
I didn't know how the story could carry on.
I didn't know how Lissa would carry on.
Change the location atmosphere & how the characters work.
Take Lissa away from Rose & thinks can only take a twist.
This really worked and brought a fantastic new dimension to the story.
The previous stories had only really been set within the academy & the royal court
but with this twist a whole new world opened up.
It left you hoping and wondering.
The only thing is which way will it go?
I have to give the book 5 out of 5
I couldn't give it any less than perfection.

This weeks Book Blogger Question is:
Comments. The holy grail of blogging success! What type of posts do you leave comments on? How do you try to encourage more comments on your blog? Do you respond to people who leave comments on your posts? How do you handle negative/spam comments? Do you use captcha?
I leave comments on posts where I love what
they have made/ have a view on the topic or feel the blogger needs a lift.
I always respond to comments - I also reply on the page as well so people can tell I am reading what
I am writing even if they are a blogger with no email address.
I think negative/spam comments need to be ignored.
I don't use captcha, I think it stops some people from responding.

Now it's your turn
have you reviewed anything that you would like to share?
