Darkest Powers Trilogy - Kelley Armstrong

Hi!

Here's my review for Darkest Powers Trilogy by Kelley Armstrong.

Short description
My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.

All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don't even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost - and the ghost saw me.

Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won't leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a "special home" for troubled teens. Yet the home isn't what it seems. Don't tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is, whose side are they on? it's up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House...before its skeletons come back to haunt me



My opinion

What can I say? I loved this books. Most of the time I don’t like it when the characters are only fifteen or younger (seventeen is the perfect age for me). Because most of the time fifteen year olds are still immature and it can annoy me like hell. But not this time, I really like Chloe as a character. Also the plot was well worked out, I can’t recall a moment that I wanted to put down this books! But at the end of the third book there were still some loose ends. Did the author do this on purpose? Id don’t know. And then the characters, like I already have said, I liked Chloe. She’s hones, funny, sometimes a bit na├»ve (but who isn’t), forgiving and very loyal to her friends and family. Tory is as spoiled as hell, but still at the end of the books I liked her. I think she grew on me during the books. And then you have the brothers Derek and Simon. Simon is the sweet one, the cute one, the funny one… in short the perfect boy. Derek on the other hand is dark, mysterious and most of the time cynical. Still if I could choose between the two of them, I would choose  him. He just has something more that Simon misses.
So if you are looking for something to read and you haven’t read this books yet than you should  definitely give them a try.

Read in November

Hi!

First of all I want to explain why I'm posting so little these days. I'm going to college and in December the semester ends, so everyone is giving us a lot of assignments. On top of that my days are very long, so at the end of the day I'm exhausted. So that's why I read and blog so little these days. But in February (I know it's 2 months) I will be back completely and in the mean time I will try to post as much as I can.

And now the real thing: the books I've read in November!

The Summoning (Darkest Powers #1) - Kelley Armstrong
The Awekening (Darkest Powers  #2) - Kelley Armstrong
The Reckoning (Darkest Powers #3) - Kelley Armstrong
Nightfall (The Vampire Diaries: The Return #1) - L.J. Smith
Onyx (Lux #2) - Jennifer Armentrout
A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle #1) - Libba Bray

The review for Darkest Powers is comming, I hope to post him this week.
Which books have you read this month?

See you later xx
