Skylar Matthews just turned 18 when she started having unsettling dreams
that were enough to wake her from deep slumber. Some of them were
pleasant, others were disturbing, while the rest were downright

actually need to spend more time with him to save her life. Now numerous
problems are plaguing her, and her entire world rattled the moment he

in the matter. Now it seems like all he could do is blame the prophecy.
He acts that out by irritating her most of the time and saving her life
at other times, which thoroughly complicates her life.

together. The only problem is will he be able to keep up with his nasty
act and not start caring about her once he sees her again?
Editorial Review Author Lisa Olsen kicks off a new series, this time
about vampires, with Wake Me When the Sun Goes Down. Slightly geeky but
loveable newbie vamp Anja made me want to give her a hug and a mug of O
Positive, but Bishop from the secretive Order steps up to reluctantly
show her the ropes when her Sire is MIA. You need a license to breed in
the hidden vampire community and Anja must pretend to be someone she's
not in order to save her pretty neck. Throw in Centuries old Aleksandr
who is charmed by Anja's mix of strength and naiveté and the mysterious
Sire who abandoned her, and there are a lot of questions to unravel!
While the story wraps up with a satisfying end, there are definitely
plenty of stones left unturned for the rest of the series and I eagerly
await the sequel.
Product Description "It was ironic that this
happened to me; I was never a night person at heart. So you can see
right off the bat why a vampire was the very last thing I would have
chosen to be."
Anja Evans wakes up in the morgue with a hell of a
hangover. It takes almost eating her best friend before she figures
out... she's a vampire. When a dark and dangerous vampire shows up at
her door asking to see her license and registration, Anja assumes Bishop
is a regular cop. But breeding among vampires is strictly controlled,
and her unlicensed status makes her an enemy of The Order. Struggling to
find a balance between her former life and her undead one, Anja tries
to blend school and living up to her new identity, all while searching
to find the elusive Viking, whose blood gave Anja the strength of a
vampire hundreds of years old.
DESCRIPTION: Unjustly sentenced to death, Eilidh ran--away from
faerie lands, to the streets of Perth, Scotland. Just as she has grown
accustomed to exile, local police discover a mutilated body outside the
abandoned church where she lives. Recognising the murder as the work of
one of her own kind, Eilidh must choose: flee, or learn to tap into the
forbidden magic that cost her everything.

Reading is one of my favorite hobbies. I love sharing what I'm reading and posting my thoughts (reviews). Although this blog started out as reviews for paranormal romance, it has grown to include many other genres such as: horror, true crime, fiction, etc..
I am not a professional reviewer by any means, but I know what I like in a book. Reading is my favorite hobby and I love to connect with others who share my love for books.
I'm a mom of two teenage boys and a nine year old girl. I also have two awesome dogs (Maggie-a boxer; Bandit- an akita mix) and a beta fish named Scooby. Other than reading, I love drag racing, watching Ghost Hunters and Vampire Diaries, baking, painting, and basically anything creative.
