Review Time! Unexpected by DependsOnForever

        Well, hello there, and welcome to my blog. Yep, it's that time of day again...Review time! Today I will be reviewing DependsOnForever aka Harley's story Unexpected. It is on wattpad.
        Here is a brief description...
        Sharissa's life is pretty ordinary. Well, after her boyfriend breaks up with her, she walks through the streets with a broken heart. She is severely injured, and is saved by no other than Harry Styles. From then on, her life is turned upside down.  One night could change everything even more. With a surprise on the way now, you can only expected the unexpected.
        It's a One Direction fan fiction. Sharissa isn't like most characters. She isn't perfect, but she is completely lovable. If a character is perfect, then they are unlikable. I love her partake on One Direction. When you read it, you can tell she tried to stay as true as possible to who they are. But since we do not know them personally, you cannot hit it spot on. The story is overall a very good story. It has a sequel to it that is not completed yet. I cannot wait to see people's reactions to the new story. The link it is below. I hope you will check it out. If you don't you will regret missing out on such a great story. If you read it, how about you give her some feedback on it. I know she would love that.

Premonition Series by Amy A. Bartol

     Yep, it's that time...Review time! YEah, I know I haven't done a review in a while. I reread the whole Premonition Series. So let's get to the good and the bad.
  
      Good


     Well, in the first book Inescapable, the book has a good introduction. It isn't one of those that you have to bare through the first few chapters. They are enjoyable. Evie is very innocent and naive when the book starts out. Then all this information is thrown on her. Reed, oh Reed, he is one of my favorite characters. Actually, my favorite character is Zephyr and Buns. Poor Russell, Evie no longer wants him as the love of her life. He has done something in their past life that has ruined that. We don't know what yet though. I guess to find out that we will just have to wait until book four. Evie's angel side knows what he did. She can't remember it though. Bartol has come up with some mythical creatures I've never heard of. Vampire Fairies call Gancanagh. (I think that's how you spell that.) Those creatures, or as they pronounce it craiturs, seem pure evil at first, but you find out they do have some good in them. Overall, the series is very good, and I am about to reread it again.

    Bad
  
      This may have been an accident, but there are some parts that are exact copies of Twilight sentences. Like the line when Reed is saying how he isn't used to be able to show his true nature. How he is happy about being able to show someone it. Reed says that after showing his super human speed. Edward says almost the exact same thing when he runs around to open her car door.  Also in the second book Evie leaves him. Edward leaves Bella in the second book too. There are also other lines that are almost the exact same lines from Twilight. This may have been an accident, I don't know, I just saw that. It may now be that noticeable. But I've read Twilight so many times, I can quote it.
         Another is Evie. She starts becoming this whiny little character. Also she does things that are completely idiotic after EVERYONE told her not to. What's with that? Evie becomes whiny and unlikeable. Also, the Gancanaghs are over used. They shouldn't have had her a second time.
      

       The series is good, but it does have it's mess ups. I would give it four and a half out of five stars. I also would recommend this to anyone who loves a good paranormal romance book.

**Update** Stories

    I have put the following stories on hold until further notice

  • My Annoying Guardian Angel
  • Have You Ever
  • Angelena's Past
  • Fading Glory
  • Moon Lovers 
     I am trying to put my main focus on the Twilight Twisted Series and Give In, which may have a spin off story. Once I get through the Twilight Twisted Series, I will have more time for my non-fan fiction writings. Have You Ever is one of my favorite stories I am writing, and I am sooo excited for when I can continue to write it. Moon Lovers is a story that I might add a chapter here and there, but I just enjoy writing it. Some other work-in-progress I write on every now and then have one of my favorites. I can't wait until I can show you guys more information about it.
