My Review
Of course - I adored the second book to the 'Unearthly' series!! This book tells and reveals SO much more and I love it. It made me cry though. It was weird, while reading this book I felt as though whoever died in the book died in my life and I balled when I finished the book. Which is so strange, I was THAT attached. Clara never got a break it was problem after problem and I felt bad for her. Unearthly focused on her purpose and in Hallowed it focuses more on family and I liked that. I can't get over this book, I'm already reading another book and I still feel upset over it. Cynthia- you are an amazing writer. Seriously. I cannot WAIT for 2013. The ending was - AH! So much information and I have to wait that long?! Haha, amazing book and I'm excited for number 3!

My Review
I absolutely adore these books, all of them. I figured this would be easier than making multiple blog posts. I love the story line, the love trianlge, the characters, the suspense. Katherine will always be a favourite of mine and I will always love Damon - though it's hard to choose. The books are FAR better than the show. Although it's fun to see your books come to life and see how they interact, they never stay true to the books which I suppose is understandable. In the show- I hate Stefan. Hate him so much. He's SO mean, while in the books he's sweet and loving and caring. This is a great series and I'm so glad that it's continuing and I encourage anyone and everyone to read the books. They're really great.
