Day in the life of a Mum with 3 kids and loves to read! With my many gadgets.


Starcrossed  - Josephine Angelini I absolutely positively loved this book. It was amazing! This is something different from the normal paranormal romance books & it was a non-stop addictive read. Helen is an extraordinary teenager. Her mother left when she was a baby & her father raised her. She is special & doesn't know why or what her abilities include. All her life she hasn't known why she was different until a family moved to her island. They were all extremely beautiful & everybody was drawn to them. When Helen first saw Lucas at school, her first instinct was to attack & kill him. In her attempt the whole school was flabbergasted & couldn't understand why Helen would want to kill somebody she hadn't even met. This was built into her genes & she didn't understand why she was so angry with him.Lucas & Helen are drawn to each other, they can't be apart, but they can't be together. They have explained that Helen is a demigod & that's why she has wanted to kill Lucas, because his family are as well. They are from different families & that causes an instinct to kill one another. Somebody is trying to kidnap Helen. Lucas is trying to find the culprit & protect Helen in the process. Helen started training with Lucas & his family to build her strength & find all her abilities. While in the process, Helen ends up confiding in her best friend since birth Claire. Claire is not surprised & knew Helen was special. Ever since they were children Claire was testing Helen to see if she could be hurt. Helen was surprised, but relieved.Helen's love for Lucas grew stronger, but they cannot be together because of their families. The kidnapper is found & another is attempting to kidnap her as well. They are discovered & defeated. What will happen to Helen & Lucas & their love for each other? We will have to wait for Dreamless. This book was fantastic & highly recommended to everyone. I rated it a 5stars.
