REVIEW: Lightborne (The Bexley Chronicles, #1) by Brindi Quinn


33629436
He cups me close to his face, near his mouth, so that his lips are grazing the reaches of my light. “You’re warm, B.” He grins. “Like a small fluttering bird.” 
Then, his grin grows into something edging on salacious, and I have one hasty, breathless thought: 

. . . He’s going to kiss me? 

Nope. 
At the last moment, he opens his mouth and shoves me inside. 
If I’m not mistaken, I’ve just been swallowed. 

. . . . . . . . . . 
Bexley Lightborne is not your average run-of-the-mill mortal. She’s a realm-hopping, light-wielding badass . . . with just a touch of amnesia. 

As shadows from the dark realm invade the world of light, Bexley enlists the help of a foul-mouthed, baby-faced newcomer holding magickal potential . . . who also happens to be the worst human boy Bexley has ever met. 

Tethered together, two unlikely heroes will discover the truth of their forgotten bloodline and fight to reclaim what’s been lost, whether they want to or not. 

Four colors collide in a war of light. 
And all of this magic stuff? Pretty badass.

*Thanks to the Author for a physical review copy in exchange for an honest review*

I had my eye on Brindi Quinn for a long time but always something came up and I was just unable to read the book. But now that I've finally read it, I can't keep myself from reading other books by Brindi.
                           
                           * This is me after reading almost every book!*

Oh, and did you look at that cover? It's so freaking pretty and I would have read the book only because of the cover but that was not the case. So why did I actually decided to give this book a shot?

He cups me close to his face, near his mouth, so that his lips are grazing the reaches of my light. “You’re warm, B.” He grins. “Like a small fluttering bird.”

Then, his grin grows into something edging on salacious, and I have one hasty, breathless thought:

. . . He’s going to kiss me?

Nope. At the last moment, he opens his mouth and shoves me inside.
If I’m not mistaken, I’ve just been swallowed.

Because of this excerpt!! Don't you get all those intriguing feels? After I read the blurb, specifically these lines, my inner reading goddess kept me bugging to go on and pick up this book and freaking read it now!! But I was like, Ammie *face set in a straight line* focus on your damn exams or you'll fail and then you'll be homeless because your parents will kick their useless reading goddess out of their house!

Okay, no more bickering let's just get to the plot!

The story revolves around Bexley, a light Bourne. She is a warrior with a task to defend the modern world from nocturne that is the darkling realm. So Bexley is a fierce badass, full of sarcasm and I loved her for that.

Oh, and she is a mild amnesic. Yes, you heard it right, she suffers from mild amnesia. Intrigued now? So what are you waiting for? Go and read the book *duh*. 

Bexley, a turquoise Lightborne thinks it is her sworn duty to protect the Mortals from the Darklings, to activate any dormant Lightbourne and to search for a hidden weapon. She also does not have full access to her memories which frustrates her. She meets Kinley and then she finds that her memories of him are locked deep inside.

So all in all this book is full of suspense and I am not going to reveal any further because it will ruin everything for you. So just take my word and start reading this book. Oh and the romance part was far better than I expected but I am still not going to reveal anything, you will have to read and find out yourself. Do some work guys!!

The world Brindi constructed was just amazing, so different from regular dystopian/fantasy. It was what you call something unique. The character development? Amazing again. I loved Bexley's sassiness. 

The romance part? Unexpected and utterly amazing again. * I think I can't find anything else than amazing to define this book!* 

The suspense part? Don't even ask me, I can't handle all these rollercoaster feelings *aah* give me the next book already Brindi or I am going to turn mad!!

Go go go and read this! If you are still reading the recommendation section after reading the entire review, you are not listening to me!! READ THIS BOOK, PERIOD!

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama, inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from cystic fibrosis.

As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure.

This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start!
1.Live Big because life don't give us enough chances.


2. Take risks, you never know which moment is your last. 


3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you.


4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living.


5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.


Until next time...Bye!

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

**Thanks to Hay House for the Review copy** First things first, Deepak Chopra is one of the most efficient non-fiction writers. I've heard great things about his books but as I am not so keen on non-fiction so I haven't read any of them. But guess what! One day I came across a title called Soulmate, written by Deepak Chopra and that too a fiction!! So I knew I had to read this and I just picked up this book.
The thing that attracted me to this book was its cover an…

REVIEW: Lights! Scalpel! Romance! byJas Kohli

Being a surgeon is not easy. And the ones in Nirog Hospital are the best at making it worse.

Nipun, the eternal prankster and Nishtha, the strong-headed beauty, join the MS (surgery) course under Dr. Ujjwal, a brilliant surgeon-cum-alfa male of the hospital, and Dr. Anuroop (alias Candy), a smooth operator. 

Freaky situations and spicy incidents become the norm when their worlds
collide. Edgy patients and their relatives add even more spice to the mix.

Amidst all this chaos, Nipun makes every effort to find love but his efforts fail every time. When he’s not failing, he’s falling—and literally. Soon he starts being known as a doctor who is more dangerous than the disease itself. 

Will Fiasco King Nipun attain his two degrees—MS in surgery
and pass certificate in romance?

Lights! Scalpel! Romance! invites readers to become a part of the fun side of hospital life, where a surgeon’s routine is akin to driving in a Formula One race every day.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY HONOR BY CORA REILLY

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families. 

Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca. 
Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power, but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile.

In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster within; a monster who ca…

BOOK REVIEW: CROWN OF LIES (crown of lies duet 1) BY PEPPER WINTERS

Until her past collides with her present.  And it’s her turn to lie. 
To everyone…including herself.
