Overall Series Is Not 
series is not it may seem at first and you will not xperience all the swooniness nor the clever way it was woven into the whole series if you don t continue past Vendetta Which when it comes to the romantic arc is just a set up and will make so much sense in Inferno The romance in Vendetta is supposed to be insta love y on purpose and when you continue with the series you realize that maybe there was someone better for Sophie all along she just might not have seen it All I m gonna say is if you did read Vendetta and uit it bc of the romance there you might just be pleasantly surprised if you do pick up Inferno by all the chemistry and witty banter and swooniness of the overarching romantic couple Aren t you glad I have no respect for your authority Aside for the amazing romance aspect and the way it was handled throughout the whole series there is also an important female friendship between Sophie and her best firiend Millie I have to say after I read the rest of the series aside for Luca Millie is definitely my ultimate favourite after I read the rest of the series aside for Luca Millie is definitely my ultimate favourite number two from this series I loved her humour and interactions with Sophie her supportiveness and loyalty so much I wish I had a best friend like Millie who would stand by me like she did by Sophie when I was in my teen years There is beauty verywhere From Notes to Narrative: Writing Ethnographies That Everyone Can Read even in the dark there is light and that is the rarest kind of all Then there s the family aspect of the story which was very interesting to mespecially as it came to the mafia family side of the story the Mafia family side of the story Valentino my intelligent cinamon roll As well as Sophie s relationship with her mom was nice to read about The thriller side of the story takes a bit of a time before it gets going in this one as we need to be introduced to the cast the various relationships and setting I liked how the atmosphere was sligtly foreboding but also unexpectedly fun thanks to the bomb that is Millie and Sophie s slightly sacrastic voice The most action and all the twists and tuns of the plot happen in the last seuence of the book but no part of this story is in any way slow It s written in such a fast refreshing style that you won t be bored at all I know I m not the only one to say this but this series reads like a film to me it wold be an amazing tv show On a side note the plot of the next two books starts right from the beginning there are twists and turns on From the Enemy's Point of View: Humanity and Divinity in an Amazonian Society every page because we ve already been introduced to the cast andverything in this first book How could a boy who was raised to believe that bad people are Die 16 jährige Sophie lebt mit ihrer Mutter in Chicago Als der attraktive Nic mit seiner Familie in die Nachbarschaft zieht fühlen sich beide sofort unwiderstehlich voneinander angezogen Doch.

Review Triff mich um Mitternacht Valentine Vendetta #1

Holly bad possibly understand the idea that within bad there can be good and important the potential for good Luca and his family were looking at the world in black and white All in all if you want to read something a little bit different from the ususal YA fantasy or contemporary try out this series It s probably weird to say but I think both contemporary AND YA fantasy readers will be able to get into the series very Doris Salcedo easily While it ssentially a contamporary book set in suburban Chicago with no magical Twelve Days of Pleasure element to it it also has this takes you out of the real world slightly dark atmosphere to it with some thrills underworld stuff and lots of swoons and girl friendship I m primarily a fantasy reader yet this one hit the mark for me Highly recommended for YA readers But he was setting me free and whateverlse was happening around us that meant something Vendetta 3755 starsInferno 55 starsMafiosa 55 starsFirst Read 2016 Original review35 stars This life is so complex that we rarely get to be the people we are truly meant to be Instead we wear masks and put up walls to keep from dealing with the fear of rejection the feeling of regret the very idea that someone may not love us for who we are deep in our core that they might not understand the things that drive us Vendetta feels like a rather avarage contemporary read at first but the second half improves imensely Toward the nd this book gets very gripping with lots of secrets mysteries hard truths and shocking moments revealedThere s some YA tropes thrown in the mix I specially felt iffy about Nic and how completely romanticized he wasThe main heroine Sophie seemed uite naive at first due to how she grew up I guess but she did get better at the Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye end and I have high hopes for her in the seuel I didn t like the instalove ish romance between her and Nic It actually felt like insta lust to me They fell forach other way too uickly And I wasn t that fond of Nic s character overall to be honest He didn t really think about conseuences of his actions he was also very impulsive bland and I wasn t generally to interested in his character But I pretty much rooted for her and Luca through most of this book He and Sophie just had such an amazing hate to love but not really because there was no love triangle she had romance with only one guy chemistry between them but hate to love in a way that was never Grand Illusion: The Third Reich, the Paris Exposition, and the Cultural Seduction of France ever disrespectful like it can be some other books And when you look underneath what peaople say and look at their actions instead you re guaranteed to understand them and their motivations better I found his character much intriguing fascinating and complex than Nic s Luca was actually one of the best things about this book and I m definitely looking forward to know about him in the next bookDespite my lower rating Vendetta was by no means a bad book And I still pretty much flew through it It was very gripping fast andntertaining read I will pick up the second book in hopes that Vendetta was just setting things up for much bigger mind blowing mystery in InfernoPS Fan arts taken from Catherine Doyle s tumblr page My initial reaction after finishing thisThis was so different to What I Was Expecting But In A Good Way It I was xpecting but in a good way It kind first read July 3 2015first reread April 15 21 2017OMG this book was fantastic This life is so complex that we rarely get to be the people we are truly meant to be Instead we wear masks and put up walls to keep from dealing with the fear of rejection the feeling of regret the very idea that someone may not love us for who we are deep in our core that they might not understand the things that drive us I loved it I loved the characters The storyline The twists turns I loved the use of the Italian language and I loved me some Falcone brothers This was one of those books that I came across and debated for days whether to buy it or notI am so glad I talked myself in to it I loved it It sucked me right in and I didn t want it to nd Every time I decided I knew what was going to happen I was wrong It really was great and I am looking forward to whatever happens in the 2nd bookview spoilerIs it bad to say This book was so much fun And I feel kind of strange saying that because it s actually kind of darklet me try to xplain Sophie is your average teenager with her one close friend and her crappy summer job and her beloved dad in jail for something that has made Sophie an outcast in her small town But Sophie doesn T Spend Her Time Feeling Sorry For Herself She S spend her time feeling sorry for herself She s and snarky and most of the time smart but sometimes does some dumb things because she thinks they re the right thing to do in short she s a real interesti So this pretty much sums up my feelings about this bookVendetta combines depth and gritty realness with heart and humour There was romance but no gooeyness It s been a while since I ve read a book where I could properly relate to the characters and actually feel motionally tied to their journey The plot is incredibly twisty and fast paced so I found it really hard to put down And I may have shed a tear at one point I am not ashamed sniffleNow just have to settle in for the loooong wait for book two Nooooooooo Actual rating 355 Mafiaso Stars I want to study the realness of life not the gloss There is beauty Hard Bread (Phoenix Poets everywhereven in the dark there is light and that is the rarest kind of all Vendetta is so far the first Mafia story I ve Electromyography for Experimentalists ever read about and simply the id. Dannrfährt Sophie dass ihr Vater der im Gefängnis sitzt ausgerechnet Nics Vater getötet hat Und dass Nics Familie die zu Forgetful of Their Sex: Female Sanctity and Society, ca. 500-1100 einem gefährlichen Zweig der sizilianischen Mafia gehört Rache Ea of Mafia fascinated me much thus I had highxpectations for the book Well did it meet my standards turning into Le Penseur s aka The Thinker by Rodin modeTo begin with there are different titles for ach chapter which I absolutely love and basically those are xactly the cores of them Honestly I thought those topics wouldn t be sospecific because a part of me still wanted some surprises Therefore when I found out the pattern of them I was a little bit disappointed just a little bit Besides I personally think the connection between chapter and chapter isn t strong nough to make me feel something It s not that they re all separated from the previous ones for me it s just that I find it hard to be a part of the story when I can barely put myself in the main characters shoes As a result I feel like watching some sort of drama as a third person throughout the book as if whatever happens to the characters is none of my business However as a reader I WANT IT TO BE MY CONCERN The characters problems are MY problems Okay getting furious at the momentThe story is about a seemingly innocent girl named Sophie Gracewell tangled up with a notorious Mafia family originated from Sicily Italy It all started with an unnoticed pot of honey left by someone on the table in her diner Well it actually meant a declaration of something much deeper than it seemed and you ll find out in the story later It is an honor to be stung by such noble creatures That they would lay down their lives for a fleeting moment of my attention is xtraordinary There are 5 Falcones brothers in that family and she fell in love at least she thought she did with one of them The one with beautiful brown almond shaped Wicked Loving Lies eyes and pretty hair The one whom she was busy running away from when caught spying their mansion near her house And also the one who hurt her uncleven when she told him not to I like the way they met and their romantic development because seriously they were hilarious and funny most of the time He was a lovely guy when no fights or murders was concerned but sadly that wasn t his true self Maybe it was just her imagination because she wanted to be loved and to feel love too badly Why would you pass the ball to me when her face was in the way Nic seethed over me Why would you be feeling her up in the middle of a basketball game When Sophie discovered something mysterious about her uncle Jack and his past with those boys she decided to dig deeper and that was what dragged her down La heredera del mar ever since Perhaps she wasn t as innocent as she appeared to be The story building was pretty astonishing and as things turned out complicated it left me wanting Unfornately I think the descriptions and the way it s told are lack of flourish To put it differently the words and phrases the author used in this book are uite simple andasy to grasp the whole idea of them but I truly hope That The Story Could Be the story could be written I mean there are too many ways of speech that I ve seen in other ordianry books several times and I m tired of reading them again and again Moreover since it s all about Mafia s definition of loyalty and love there are many Italian conversations in the storywithout translation Trying not to complain but I d like to understand what those Mafia boys are talking or arguing about while I m reading the book Although I did look up those words in a dictionarytrust me the auto translation on Google is incredibly perfect I admit that I d rather not spend so much time searching that I d rather not spend so much time searching But in the meanwhile I believe it ll be a special reading xperience for those Italian readers or anyone who understands Italian In the nd of the story there s a HUGE cliffhanger and I really want to continue it Despite the fact that there are some flaws in the book the ntire idea of how the story was plotted still imprinted on me I wouldn t Say That I LOVE This that I LOVE this but at least I LIKE it and that s nough for me For now All in all it s a uick and humorous read for me so I recommend Vendetta to those who re also interested in how Mafia works out and their circle of friendsfamilylove I hope this book will intrigue you than me D That s YA Mafia Romance for you apparentlyI feel like my brain should be washed in bleach after Vendetta but as I m a silly bitch who love rolling her yes and giggling stupidly apparently I will most definitely read the rest njoy Luca and stab the puppy smile out of Nic the Creep s face This book is trash though and does something I hate it uses an attempted rape to serve the plotCONS TSTL heroine Instalove Bad dialogues Unbelievable Predictable NIC The cheese the cheese Aramaic Bowl Spells: Jewish Babylonian Aramaic Bowls Volume One everywhere these boys are just so beautiful beautiful beautiful BAHAHAHAHA yes I m losing it Remind me why they care about Sophie oh yes she s so spechul I m drowning in snowflakesPROS girl friendship LUCA I like that he s not trying to be fed as a good guy like cough and I m very curious to see what he hides in him hehe also he does try to tell Sophie to get lost which makes him way decent than Nic The Creep Sometimes Sophie actually thinks and it makes my day it s uite addictive look at me I should have DNFed on page 10 and I m probably going to read the seuel XDTW Attempted rape violence because it s the M A F I A yeah I m laughing don t shoot meOh and VAFFANCULO NICOLI oops Five brothersAn underworld with warring familiesForbidden love OK YupUpdate Pre order for Feb 24th complete Finished There are no word.
