Crescendo Better Than Hush Hush? Susie Thinks So**Spoiler Free**

Yeah I know this is turning into a book review kind of site but since nothing is really going on in the Twilight world we have to occupy ourselves and our readers with something else that entertains us and I can assure you that Aimee and I LOVE LOVE LOVE to read...believe me. Hopefully I can convince miss Aimee to do a quick Goodreads review post soon too. BTW this review is spoiler free because I know a couple of our followers are just starting on Hush Hush.

Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2)Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hands down and I don't care if you agree with me or not...better than Hush Hush. Okay I know a few of you are fuming from that statement but let me give you some reasons why for me it was better than the first one.

We are already comfortable with the characters and I love to see character development. Boy howdy did this book have that! Not only are we introduced to one new character but the expansion of both Marcie and Rixon is amazingly written and the down spiraling issues between Patch and Nora is heartbreaking. Not to mention the development of Nora's new nickname I gave her...Crazy Bitch.

The plot thickens. If you thought the darkness unfolded in Hush Hush then you ain't seen nothing yet. Crescendo is full of intriguing plot twists heavy on the mystery with a dash of passion and flakes of comedy here and there (via Vee BFF)

So if you haven't read it yet then get your butt in gear because you are banking on one Hell of a read with an ending gasp worthy of a third installment.

Why I Gave Torment 4 Stars Instead of 5 *Spoilers Inside*

Torment (Fallen, #2)Torment by Lauren Kate

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So you're probably wondering is if you loved Fallen so much what was wrong with Torment that it went down a notch? I'm gonna just do a list to make things easier for you lol.

What I loved about it:

The new characters! They were all so wonderful. The new dorm buddy, the love interest, the groupies lol, and my favorite would be Frankie and Steve. I love their outlook and grim reality on their love. The fact that Frankie loves him but knows when the time comes she'll have to kill him *sigh*.

The new setting! I loved the secret hideaway of the Nephilim. It just seems right but obviously not as safe as everyone thinks it is.

The Truce was a good idea or Luce would have been done for. Sometimes Angels and "Demons" just got to play nice.

Shadow Glimpsing/Hopping was neat and a nifty way to travel to Vegas lol

Ok folks what I didn't like about it:

Kinda didn't like the love triangle. I know its necessary because their needs to be some drama for the series to move along but isn't there enough drama without bringing a love triangle into it, just saying. And kissing him?! Stupid Stupid girl!

No secrets revealed or not many. Ok maybe its just me but I'm even more confused after reading this book then reading Fallen. I thought for sure something would be revealed about Daniel and Luce's past and yes while there were a few tidbits they were few and far between of what I really wanted. And what is it I want? I truly want to know why is it that they are cursed. Why do those blind albino people want her so much? What is the big secret cause that is what is holding my hand and leading me through this series.

The ending only pissed me off because its awesome and leads to the next book perfectly. Damn you!

Breaking Dawn Covens Cast!

This just in from the official Twilight website:

Summit Entertainment announced today the following have been cast in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN for roles in The Amazon Coven, The Egyptian Coven, The Irish Coven and The Romanian Coven as well as the American and European Nomads

I am so excited! For me the first part of Breaking Dawn is all about romance and family. The second part is all about the action and danger! It's like Stephenie lulls you into this gooey puddle then slaps you in the face with Alice's vision and the arrival of the covens.

Sooooo who are the faces of the coven members??????

The Amazon Coven

Tracey Heggins and Judi Shekoni

Beautiful ebony women to play the part of the Amazon coven. Lets just hope their tall lol. Also I didn't think Zafrina would be so beautiful but hopefully the actress can pull off that gorgeous yet terrifying demeanor. *Aimee: I concur.

The Egyptian Coven

Omar Metwally and Andrea Gabriel

Angela Sarafyan and Rami Malek

Amun and Benjamin look absolutely perfect. Benjamin is among my favorite of the covens. It looks like the actors all have a little bit of Egyptian in them plus look at their names. I'm thinking the casting directors are sticking with specific heritages just like they did with the wolf pack and this makes me very happy. *Aimee: Benjamin is HOT! Seriously... the end.

The Irish Coven

Lisa Howard, Marlane Barnes, and Patrick Brennan

They all look like good faces for the friendliest coven of the bunch!
*Aimee: I'm so looking forward to seeing this coven! But again here I pictured them a little older- maybe not Siobhan but Maggie and Liam I pictured to be a little bit older but I guess they can portray that through makeup and acting. 

The Romanian Coven

Noel Fisher and Guri Weinberg

They both look a little too young to me to play the Romanians. I always pictured them much older looking in appearance. Kind of like the actor that plays Marcus of the Volturi. Does anyone agree with me there? Although the guy that's been cast as Stefan already looks menacing before having a vamp makeover lol *Aimee: I totally agree that they look too young. I thought they would at least look to be the same age as Marcus or Aro (obviously before they were turned). Noel Fisher- didn't he play a bully in Max Keebler's Big Move? (yes... I do like that movie.) Anyways, I'm looking forward to what these 2 do- I personally love the Romanians.

The Nomads

Lee Pace, Toni Trucks, and Bill Tangradi

Erik Odom and Valorie Curry

Joe Anderson

Surprisingly they have brought Peter and Charlotte into the cast even though David Slade did not mention them in the slightest bit in Eclipse. Either they will have a defining role with Jasper in BD or they will be background coven members like the other nomads are mostly. I would rant more but I can't stop looking at Joe Anderson who will play Allistar. Hands down a freaking hottie!!!! He has been nominated as the hottest coven member casting choice by me...oh yeah. He was another one that I depicted as older though not as old as the Romanians hmmm. *Aimee: I'm so excited to see Garret! He's my favorite nomad. Also very excited to see what they do with Peter and Charlotte and if they happen to give more background on Jasper because of them. Allistar I really pictured as older and more crazy- like Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future- or Christopher Walken in America's Sweethearts. 

They have also cast the traitor Irina officially and while she doesn't strike me any different then any other beautiful actress she isn't really in the book that much anyway(although her role is significant)

Maggie Grace

And Twilight fans have embraced the lovely little actress that, according to Stephenie Meyer, has been cast as Renesmee. She truly is a doll and if she can act too then she will be perfect. I just hope that Bill Condon can make her aging process work on screen because this angel looks like Renesmee's final stage in the book. *Aimee: She looks like a little Bella- which is perfect.

Mackenzie Foy

So what are everyone's thoughts on the Breaking Dawn casting so far? Do you love it? Hate it? I know you all have opinions so let's hear em! Do you recognize any of those cast in from any other projects because a couple of the faces look familiar to me I just can't think from where. Leave your opinions in the comments!
*Aimee: BTW- even though it was just sporadic comments, this is the first posting I have had in several (7) months on here! YAY!

Cutie Tagged the Blog...Well Crap!

Its a fun little game of round and round we go in a game of Tag Your It! KG over at I Heart tagged her bestie Cutie and Cutie in turn tagged my ass and posted some wild questions to share with the viewing audience. Lets Roll!

1. How do you feel about cereal milk? Drink or toss?

If it turns the milk chocolate I drink if not I toss :-)

2. What is more offensive: A girl with a small dog in her purse or a boy with a popped collar.

Umm both are pretentious and douchy but I'd have to go with popped collar cause that's a sure sign that the guy's name is Chad or Royce and he is a douche with a capital D.

3. Halloween costumes for dogs: cute or a sign that the end of days are coming soon.

As long as the dog looks comfy and its not baby gap on the poor thing cutting off its air then I'm cool with it

4. Bacon vs Chocolate. You decide.

I have a bacon issue. I crave it! I dread when I get pregnant cause I'm gonna get so fat on bacon. On the other hand maybe I'll get lucky and it will make me nauseous.

5. Would your rather fight a hundred two year olds or a hundred chihuahuas?

Chihuahuas cause I wouldn't feel bad for hitting them. I hate them lil basterds!

6. Which do you find more offensive: A stinky belly button or toe jam?

Jesus Cutie both are disgusting where the Hell did you come up with these questions!

7. Tea or Coffee?

I'm a coffee person all the way but I like a good iced tea in summer

8. Michael Jackson. Your thoughts.

You went there didn't you? Great musical artist but wouldn't leave my worst enemy alone at Neverland Ranch
