2.5Me and this book went on a strange journey together and the end result was very conflicted feelings.It all started when I decided I wanted to become more involved in one of my groups and actually pay attention to the monthly book reads. In the past, I used the group for challenges and recommendations but didn't participate in the group read-along, so I decided that I would read every book voted for except the ones that a) I had already read or b) I couldn't obtain for whatever reason. I then [...]
DNFI was really really curious about this one.Started it.Nice writing, nothing special but not bad.The family at the center of the series, uber-interestng.The heroine, uber-idiotic, blushes at every single damn thing possible and in every single damn situation possible. She behaves like a 13 yo at best, and one who has never been in contact with a male specimen of the human species.Triangle. I hate them. HATE! Especially seeing stupid indecisive heroines who spend the whole book deciding who to [...]
I freaking LOVED this book. It is so, so amazing, and the four brothers are SMOKING HOT. Not to mention, Becca is a fantastic, strong heroine. I can't recommend this book highly enough!
Read the full review here. :]This book definitely made me want to bend some elements. (That's putting it in avater the last airbender terms. ;p) I think, after reading this book, I'd want to have the element of fire. I've actually always wanted to have a fire element after watching ATLA. And this totally made me want it more. If I couldn't have it, then definitely water. There was totally a connection with water, since it was Chris's ability. c:This is just too much hotness on one cover.
"You keep saving me," she said."Yeah, well." He stroked the hair down her back. "I think we might be close to breaking even on that."Even though the covers fail to impress me, the books are quite good! I have to give Storm a 4.25 to 4.5 rating. I truly enjoyed this book, probably more than I have any YA PNR in a while.It had all the key elements of a cute romance type book I'd want to read :~ multiple hot guys (jackpot!)~ lots of action & conflict aside from the romance itself~ cool powers & [...]
Occasionally, my husband and I will discuss books that I am reading at the time. It mostly depends on if the cover sparks his curiosity enough to find out what it's about. In this case, he saw me putting together the Elemental Virgins post a few weeks ago (which may or may not have led to a few awkward questions. "So you're a virgin, huh?"), so he knew this was one of the books in the series. One day, I was minding my business, cracking up in my little Reading Corner at some witty banter between [...]
It should take me no more than three words to convince you to read this book. They are the same three words that convinced ME to read it, and I haven’t regretted it at all. Those three words are… are you ready? Four hot brothers. That’s all you need to know. *sigh* Oh, okay. I suppose I should write a “proper” review. Here it goes:Four Merrick brothers have a very strong connection to the elements: Michael controls earth, twins Gabriel and Nick control fire and air respectively, and th [...]
Four Five hot guys and one girl. Does anybody have a problem with this? As if all this testosterone running rampant isn't enough, these four brothers can control the elements: Water, air, earth and fire. The seriousness of these powers is made clear several times throughout this novel. It's a powerful ability to have to be able to control anything from tsunamis and earthquakes, to the spread of diseases; all without raising an ounce of suspicion. Basically, easily becoming an unstoppable, invisi [...]
3.5 Elemental starsThe Elemental seriesIs a great read for all paranormal YA lovers out there.The story remained fast paced and orginal as the plot twisted in surprising ways until the last page'"My mother believes everything in existence has a consciousness," he said. "An awareness. As in, maybe it's not what you like." He reached out and touched her finger, which was still resting on the hematite. "Maybe it's what favors you."'The two reason this book lost 2 stars for me was because1) It didn' [...]
Heads up: this one's free right now, and the others are super super cheap as well! amazon/Storm-Elemental----------------------------------------------------------------This book is so much fun, and a terrific start to a promising series. I am far too behind on reviews I have to do to write one for this, but I did write a spoiler-free review of book two here: /review/show/If you enjoy sarcastic quips and hot boys with your YA urban fantasy, you'll definitely want to pick this one up, though!
It's late night in an abandoned parking lot, but Becca Chandler can't just stand there and watch Chris Merrick be cruelly beaten upon by two older guys. From the moment she saves his life, she unwittingly marks herself as a target. The Merrick brothers are not ordinary. They're Elementals, each with a strong power over an individual element - water, earth, fire and air. They are dangerously powerful and those that know of their abilities want them very dead. Allow me to take a moment to express [...]
I don't know what to write here. I know I usually start my reviews that way and then churn out essays the length of my arm, but honestly, this book is a paradox: Because I really, really liked it. And yet I didn't.It's not the idea. It's not the execution. The concept - of four brothers with an affinity to the elements struggling to survive in a world that is hostile to them, is fantastic. The writing is great - the dialogue zings and I often found myself really cheering the characters on. They' [...]
To say that this book grabbed me would be an understatement. I read the entire thing in 4 hours and completely ignored my poor husband (sorry honey, I'm reading about Merrick boys, 'kay?!). It was a wonderful blend of action, paranormal, and romance. No insta-love, no cheesy cop-outs, just great writing and a fast pace that kept me frantically reading. My favorite parts of the book? I love a great YA paranormal that is well done. And by well done I mean that the supernatural elements make sense, [...]
A nice, well-executed novel. I wanted to read this because I've always loved books with natural powers such as earth, water, wind and fire. They fascinate me. 'Storm' began with action and suspense and I liked that but somewhere along the way it lost its edge. Maybe because it was uneventful. Then it picked up and it became thrilling again and I loved the ending too, although I would have liked some closure. So we have this caring, giving, kind girl named Becca who's always been one to have eyes [...]
It's easy to recognize the good things about this book: the smooth writing; some dialogues are sharp and entertaining; one character, Hunter, is well developed. However, some other aspects of the book turned me off so much that I cannot give the book a rating higher than 2 stars.One problem was the love triangle. I felt that Hunter was a much better written character than Chris. I liked his quiet confidence, sharp mind and charisma. He's nothing but supportive of Becca, never judged or hesitated [...]
The Merrick brothers, Michael, Gabriel, Nick and Chris are special.They are pure Elementals, meaning they have an unusual amount of power, with the element they "dominate".And because of that power, the other Elementals feared them and are set on eliminate them. Only a truce made some years ago, stays between them and the ones that want them gone. However, that don't stop the other of bullying them, beat them up, trying to make them lose control, to break the curse and force the Guides, to come [...]
This review is also available on my blog, QwertyOkay, it's a challenge to write a review after half a month I finished with this book. Ha-ha! It's what you got when you chose to read a book right before a major exam starts.One thing I vividly remember thoughThis book haz it.Where do I begin about THE FIVE HOT GUYS! (Actually, Becca's dad was actually kind of cute until I actually found out his secret).Well, it didn't reach the point where I found my ovaries were exploding. But, close enough none [...]

Libro del final de tu lista de pendientes.Me encanta como pase de "Es MUY BUENO a ¿puede alguien matarme, por favor?.Tantas, TANTAScosas que estàn mal con este libro que no me alcanzan las manos para escribir.This is so fucked up.Segùn este libro la única forma en la que puedas defenderte de los chicos que te acosan, insultan, amenazan, intentar golpearte o violarte es ir a clases de defensa personal para mujeres donde te enseñan esta "caminata de [...]
After all the glowing reviews for Storm, I was a little afraid that it may not live up to my expectations. Looks like I didn't need to worry! Let's just get this confession out of the way: I heard "four hot boys" and I just knew I had to read this. The four we're talking about are the Merrick brothers, born with special elemental abilities, able to draw up power and control the forces of nature. Each brother has a specialization: air, fire, water, earth (and yes, they are all HOT!). Because of t [...]
I was an only child for much of my life, then, by an unfortunate twist of fate, when I was almost 10 years old, my sister came along. For much of my life after that, the sister and I fought like cats and dogs, mainly because I was a controlling little teenager who viewed my toddler sister as a slave/dog that I could send to fetch whatever I needed. As much as we fought, there was never any sort of conflict on the grand scale of that within this book. Holy crap, this book was filled with massive [...]
Oh my giddy-aunt I love this book! This is the sort of book that you crawl into the corner of the couch with, pull up your legs and bring all your limbs as close together as possible, then commence drumming your fingers against your bottom lip while you smile like you have some hidden secret. No really…I did that at one point. I also gasped out loud (a lot), smiled, giggled, and clapped multiple times while reading this book. I may have also hit a dear friend that was sitting beside me while I [...]
Wow, I haven’t felt this way while reading a book in quite awhile! That feeling that your eyes just can’t move fast enough across the pages to eat up the words. That even when you are not reading, your mind is still on the characters. That your heartbeat is going a little bit too fast. I didn’t even take the time to highlight anything. So this review won’t have any quotes in it. Sorry about that!In Storm we meet the youngest Merrick brother, Chris. Chris gets his power from water. And, w [...]
“I haven't gotten in a fight yet this year!Despite everything, that made her smile. "It's September."He waved a hand. "Details.”So, i'm going to try to write my first ever detailed review of a book because i loved this one so much! Storm is about a girl, named Becca, who saves a boy, named Chris, when she sees him getting beaten up by two strangers! Then, she gets tangled up in his family story, as she discovers that Chris and his three brothers have special powers according to their element [...]
I was pressured, brainwashed, and totally convinced to go into this book with high expectations, and even then it still blew me away! So. Darn. AMAZING!Storm starts on a dark night when our awesome heroine Becca literally saves Chris Merrick's life. Everything quickly goes to hell from there when she realizes that Chris and his brothers aren't normal — they're Elementals, targeted because of how powerful they are. And now that she knows the truth, Becca isn't so safe either.Becca is the perfec [...]
3.5 starsI had my eyes on this book for a while because most of my friends have read it and loved it, so when I got a copy of Spark (the second book in the series) for review I thought that it was time for me to start reading this series too.Don't be fooled by the 3 and a half star-rating, the book is quite good and if you don't usually over-think the paranormal worlds (like I seem to do) you will definitely love it more.This is a refreshing story about 4 boys with powers way too strong for thei [...]
Four brothers, each a powerful elemental, a community at war, and one girl caught in the middle, Brigid Kemmerer brings her A-game in her electrifying debut. Storm should come with a cautionary notice. Something like: “Severe Weather Warning: This book will blow you away.”The Story: When Becca Chandler saves a boy from a brutal beating in her school’s parking lot, chasing off his attackers, she has no idea what her good Samaritan act is getting her caught up in. The boy is Chris Merrick, w [...]
Good good. Very good. Nothing eartshaking, but hey, good is already more than I expected, since I haven't touched a het paranormal YA in months.It looks like I read it in 8 days, but it was actually 4, with one long break in the middle. This means that no, I wasn't completely sucked in and sitting on the very edge of my seat, but while reading I was mighty interested in what was going to happen next. Good enough.I was planning on talking at length about all the typically PNR-het-YA stuff that bu [...]
Soo it started off good, but got super boring and I lost interest. Heavy with dialogue and not enough plot to keep me invested, I was torn between rating this a two or a three. Elemental powers seem to be intriguing right? But when the brothers all seem to have wild tempers that flare hot and cold, I grew annoyed. Michael and Gabriel annoyed me, but Nick and Chris were okay. Becca was still a cookie cutter character so she wasn't anything new either. So yep, it was interesting, but the romance a [...]
This book drove me nuts. And I'm in the mood to rant. You wanna know why? Because idiotic heroine, obnoxious heroes, fucking love triangle, teenage drama. I'm too old for this shit.I'm trying really hard to write a coherent review, but every time I think of anything from that list above, I start to see red. I'll begin from Becca, because she is what made this book insufferable for me. Becca has the personality of a kitchen cloth, which is my witty way of saying she has none. Nothing makes her sp [...]
I'm giving away the three Elemental books! Click HERE to enter :)Warning: there's a bit of rant up ahead. It's still PG-13, promise!Final rating: 3.5When I was younger, I was a bit obsessed with stories and cartoons that involve a group of teenagers being able to control the elements. I loved watching Captain Planet (shame it's not on Cartoon Network anymore!) and reading this girly comic book called W.I.T.C.H. There were a couple of mangas about it, too, and some that were slightly similar such [...]
