They say don't judge a book by its movie...err...COVER. 
BUT they never said we couldn't PRAISE them.

In the fourth and final installment, Maggie and Caleb must tie up all the loose ends of their lives and make a way to be together completely on their own. With everything that happened with Bish and Maggie's father, she's almost reluctant to move on and move out. And now she must figure out all of this...stuff...with Haddock. But of course, nothing can stay simple for the Jacobsons. Enemies who were thought to be dissolved have decided to not go down so easily. And old flames come calling for more than just Maggie. Caleb is torn between leading his family and personal wants. Maggie is torn between Caleb and being the leader of their people. But neither will let what they need most to be pushed to the wayside.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Blogging Confessions

Hiya My Little Predators!!

Welcome back to:
A weekly feature created By The Broke And The Bookish
Currently featured on That Artsy Reader Girl

This Week's Topic:
Top Ten Blogging Confessions

1. Coming up with discussion posts on a regular basis is hard. Some days are better than others;

2. Making time for scheduling posts and reading actual books is more complicated than I once thought;

3. Scheduling my posts ahead of time is the only way I can keep myself from drowning where my blog is concerned;

4. Reading slumps are impossible to deal with when you're on a deadline. Even worse when you only produce negative reviews for every book you read.

5. Sometimes the book wasn't that exciting and my book review will reflect that, unfortunately;

6. My level of pickiness in books have skyrocketed since I've created this blog;

7. I'll probably die with a mountain of unread books at the rate my TBR pile is going;

8. Classic books were never for me. I have no interest in them.

9. Regardless if I liked the book or not, I aim to be as polite and as cordial as possible when writing my review;

10. Comments make my day! :)

What's a blogging confession of yours?
Let me know in the comments below!

Audio Book Review: Destined for an Early Grave By Jeaniene Frost

Destined for an Early Grave
(Night Huntress #4)
By Jeaniene Frost

Narrated By: Tavia Gilbert
Length: 9 hours and 33 minutes

Her deadly dreams leave her in grave danger

Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they've fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it's time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She's having visions of a vampire named Gregor who's more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn't know about.

Gregor believes Cat is his and he won't stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor's hold over her. She'll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she's ever faced . . . even if getting that power will result in an early grave.

My Review:

If I had to rank this particular story within this series, it'd probably be in the top 2. This is one of the more intense plotlines to this series. Even though this was a reread I was still on the edge of my seat throughout the book. 

I like Cat a little more as this series progresses. I adore how feisty and sarcastic she can be. She also doesn't take anyone's crap, but she does know when to take no for an answer. She understands that she may not win every battle, but she will, eventually, win the war.

Bones almost became an a**hole in this book. I was ready to cut ties if everything proved to be true. I'm glad it didn't (considering that I didn't remember much of what would happen). Though he can be overprotective and domineering, I can understand where he's coming from.

The ending had my heart beating faster than usual and my blood pressure rising. It was a very good conclusion to an amazing story. 

The Audio Book:

The narration was great with an exception that shouldn't come as a surprise to you (if you've read my other reviews of this series): Bones' voice. Just because I got used to it doesn't mean I like it.

______________________________________________________
ODIN – FAVORITE STAND ALONE
Odin is the All-Father, the leader of the Norse Gods. He is the god
of wisdom, poetry, battle, death, wine, and war, among other things.

Pack By Jeaniene Frost


THOR – A BOOK THAT HITS YOU IN THE FEELS
Thor is the god of thunder, weather, warriors, strength, and storms,
so his might packs a punch. He is married to the beautiful Lady Sif.

Fighting Silence (On The Ropes #1)
By Aly Martinez


LOKI – BIGGEST BOOK PLOT TWIST OR CHARACTER BETRAYAL
Loki is the god of mischief, thieves and thrives on chaos.

The Veil Series By Pippa DaCosta
(This series is plot twist after plot twist after plot twist.)


FRIGG – OTP
Frigg is Odin’s wife, the goddess of love, marriage, fertility, and fate.

Christian & Raven From The
The Crossbreed Series By Dannika Dark


HEIMDALL – FAVORITE SECOND BOOK IN A SERIES
Heimdall is the god of loyalty, faithfulness and he is who
protects the bi-frost, the bridge that connects all nine worlds.

Ravenheart (Crossbreed #2)
By Dannika Dark


BALDUR – FAVOURITE MALE CHARACTER
Baldur is the beloved son of Odin and Frigg, twin brother of Hodor.

Bones From The
Night Huntress Series By Jeaniene Frost


SIF – MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK COVER
Lady Sif is known for her beautiful golden tresses, although
she is also the goddess of the harvest and is married to Thor.

Red Winter (Red Winter Trilogy #1)
By Annette Marie


FREY – BOOK/SERIES THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
Frey is the Lord of weather, god of light, summer, master of
agriculture, fertility, and brother of Freya.

The Crossbreed Series By Dannika Dark


FREYA – FAVORITE BOOK SETTING
Freya is the goddess of love and beauty, fertility,
war, wealth and growth, and sister of Frey.

The Mageri Series By Dannika Dark

Even though I didn't LOVE the main character's (AKA Silver & Logan) of this particular series, the world the author created is incredible! The Crossbreed Series by this author (in my humble opinion) is better than this one and takes place in the same world and follows the same rules that were first set for it as a whole. (This is the series that started it all.)




TYR – FAVORITE BOOK WITH A BIG UPHEAVAL/EPIC FIGHT SCENE
Tyr is the god of war.

Steel & Stone Series By Annette Marie

This series has quite a few epic battles throughout the story!


ULLER – CHARACTER DEATH THAT AFFECTED YOU THE MOST
Uller is the god of death, winter, archery and hunting.

I'll Just Leave This Here.


NJORD – FAVORITE BOOK AN EPIC JOURNEY ON WATER/OCEAN SETTING
Njord is the god of the wind and the sea.

I can't remember a book that took place solely in a water/ocean setting. The closest book that I can come up with that had a small plot point in water/ocean/river setting was the:

Steel & Stone Series By Annette Marie


VALKYRIE – FAVORITE STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER
The Valkyries, much like the Amazons, are strong female warriors.

As of late, Raven From The
The Crossbreed Series By Dannika Dark


AESIR/VANIR – FAVORITE BOOK “CREW”
The Aesir and the Vanir are the two groups of Norse gods,
believed to be the old and new gods.

The Crossbreed Series By Dannika Dark

All the secondary characters in this series have spin-off series/book potential
because the author does such a good job at fleshing them out.


SEIPYRTS – FAVORITE SIDEKICK
(NON-HUMAN CHARACTER)
Seipyrts is Odin’s trusty eight-legged steed.

Iyre From The
Steel & Stone Series By Annette Marie

He got a prequel series (Spell Weaver Series)! I'm
currently waiting for the audio books to be released!
