Full Review To Come !!!


Fast Paced. Intriguing. Gripping

Just like any other book she wrote, this one stands tall. An epic read that will take you in from.the very first page and not let you go. A real page turner.

Set in a distant future, November Rain -which is the first book in the Bad Bloods duology -, takes place in a city called Vendona. A city that is divided in humans and Bad Bloods -which from my view are some sort of super humans as they all posses a different set of powers.

Serena, a teen age girl is helped to escape the blood camp, by an unsuspected bad blood. A camp where only awful things happen to young bad Bloods. Running off on the streets, with the fear in her heart, Serena is saved by Daniel, another blood, who takes her to his house to take care of her risking his own flock’s safety. With the elections at their door, everyone is even more tensed and colder than they used to be.

It looks like after the massacre, there were left only two important flocks – The Eastern Flock, the one to which Serena belongs to; and the Northern Flock from which Daniel comes. If only things we’re good between these two…Either of these two flocks has twelve members.
In Daniel’s flock, not everyone welcomes Serena with opened arms and there will be some fights over whether she can be trusted or not.

Why did it have to end like that? Whyyy?

Here are some of the quotes I loved :


About Cristina

I started this blog for quite a few reasons: 1. To share my opinions about books I read. (I'm open to recommendations) 2. To express myself in the only way that I love,which is of course writing 3. To connect with people with whom I may share the same interests I read and write because it offers me an escape door from the world we live in. A door which allows me to be whomever I want to be, live wherever in this big world,set off on adventures and most of all because it brings my imagination back to life from its very very long sleep. And of course...Because I love to !! Here are some basic things about your host and writer.. My name is Cristina and I come from Bucharest ( also known as The Little Paris ) were I was born, raised and am currently - still - living. I’ve finished my studies a few years ago and got my bachelor degree at Dimitrie Cantemir University, in my hometown; in Economics. I have to admit that this specialty wasn't my first choice. I have been weighing my choices – as in, to what they can provide me in future – both while I was still in high school and after. Initially I wanted to go to Foreign Languages, but I had a big fall the moment I saw that it wasn't acredited – huge disappointment washed over me. I am still a bit disappointed about that to be honest. I have a huge passion for writing ever since I was little, and even if I had times when I didn't (or couldn't) write anything, now I am right back on track. My dad is the only one who knows how much passion I put into what I write and doesn't giggle or grin when I bring it up. I love having someone’s support no matter how little it is,it still means so much to me. Love, Cris ♥ Hope that those who will follow me like what I post around here and - why not - maybe give some ideas about new topics. :) If anyone wants to add something on the blog please contact me at
