Heist Society

Heist Society - Ally Carter Originally posted on Book-o-Craze

I haven't decided yet if there is a spot for this book on my "Favorites" shelf. Its heroine certainly deserves a spot on my "Favorite Heroines" one! The other characters weren't bad either!

Ally Carter has done an amazing book with this book. I've never before read a book of hers, but this book alone was enough of a push to read more of this author. The storyline was narrated very carefully and interestingly enough to hold the attention to the facts the author wanted us to.

The pages were actually flowing, too! I could have ended this book very easily in the same day, if I hadn't started it around midnight! Even that way, I had only almost 5 chapters out of 37, or so, to read today!

As for the heroes? Well, so many things can be said, and they would still be too little to actually do justice to the creativity of the author. Every person in this book had a role, with the mastermind, Katarina Bishop, being the most awesome thief. A thief with honor, teenage but so wise beyond her age. I guess this comes naturally, if you grow up in a family like that.

Generally, the whole book, was like watching one of my favorite movies of all time "The Italian Job", with the whole planning before stealing, with the mastermind, with every person having a part they serve, that suits their personality.
I loved it, just as much as I love that movie! Would probably read the book again sometime, which says a lot about just how much I enjoyed reading it.

Health Psychology

Health Psychology - Catherine A. Sanderson Looking for associations between stress and cancer!

Ψυχολογία της υγεία

Ψυχολογία της υγεία - Ευάγγελος Χ. Καραδήμας My professor's book for his lecture about Health Psychology!

Textbook of Pain

Textbook of Pain - Ronald Melzack Contains practically everything about Pain! Everything! I'm going to use it for some more psychological purposes, and not so medical ones, though.

Dirty Little Secrets

Dirty Little Secrets - Liliana Hart One of the best books I've read lately, found completely by chance on Wattpad. For quite some time I've been interested in such matters and reading this book made me even more enthusiastic. The author completely achieved making me relate to the heroine and the passions in her life. Everything was well-written and progressed smoothly. There were many surprises, which was expected and accepted, seeing as it was a mystery novel. My only comment would be for the actual culprit, not to be so indifferent in the rest of the story. I would like it very much if there were many suspects and one of them was the actual murderer. That doesn't mean there weren't quite a few suspects already, though. For some of them I was even sure for the most of the novel, until they became the victims. There was quite much suspence and intense cliffhangers between the chapters. All in all, I loved the novel and I'm glad there more novels about J.J. Graves and her lives.

The Hot Girl's Friend (from Flirts! 5 Romantic Short Stories)

The Hot Girl's Friend (from Flirts! 5 Romantic Short Stories) - Lisa Scott A quite nice, well-thought and well-planned short story. This plot could be used for a longer novel, too, but enjoyed it just as much just like it is.


Matched  - Ally Condie Wow, that was quite an experience. I haven't read a book like this one in awhile. I must say it was different. And, it puts you into thought, too, about your own life, even if ours is not exactly like the one described in this dystopian novel. But, I quite enjoyed the story. It was sad at some points, but it was good. The way of writing was also very different than anything else I've read, and I liked it. I found it a little impersonal, but that didn't put me off. I also noticed how fast my progress with tha book was. Every time I got my hands on it I was reading many many chapters. The story was flowing so easily with a mild writing. Generally, I liked it. I'm not sure exactly when I'm gonna get my hands on the next installment of this series, but I will.

Dead Witch Walking

Dead Witch Walking - Kim Harrison Actually I gave this book 3.5 stars.

It got me quite confused as to whether I liked it or not. The writinng was good, and made me understand well the heroine and her perception of the world. But, her decisions were more than crazy, and I don't know how she succeededto survive throughout the book, and the rest of the series, if her decisions remain that reckless. Well, we'll see. It was not a book with which my progress was fast, so I don't know when I'm going to start reading the next installment.

The Gauntlet

The Gauntlet - Karen Chance I didn't know exactly whT to expect, but, wow, I really enjoyed this short story! Oh, I had forgotten how much I like the Cassandra Palmer series! Definitely going to start the second prequel soon!

Iron Kissed

Iron Kissed - Patricia Briggs Originally posted on Book-o-Craze

I always have the same problem with all of the books of this series! For the first few chapters I read the book and few interesting things occur. It doesn't capture my attention so much as it happens after some chapters. But by then, I just can't put the book down. And, this happens with every book featuring Merecedes Thompson.

Anyway, I shall start with the actual review. I loved this book! Because of Mercy, and Adam! And, finally everything became more clear. In many aspects.

To everyone that has done some essential research of the reviews of that book, a spoiler is known. Something terrible happens to Mercy. That specific event, for some is unacceptable, but as for me, it is not. The person that made her suffer is dealed with from Mercy herself, showing us once more what a strong character she is, an aspect of her personality I greatly love. What happened to her was hard, but she was able to overcome it with the help of her friends. And, more specifically, I loved the way the author delivered the events. It should have been very difficult. Authors don't always choose to write about such difficult subjects, but Patricia Briggs proved once more that she's very talented in delivering both happy and sad events.

The book, in overall, is amazing, and I can't wait to get my hands to the next installment of the series.

Kidnapping the Laird

Kidnapping the Laird - Terri Brisbin I really enjoyed the way the writer delivered the story! It was a short sample, but I'd like very much to read more of her. The plot was interesting and at some points captivating! The heroine, Cat, is a brave young woman, with a lot of imagination!

The Indigo Spell

The Indigo Spell - Richelle Mead So, I finally, finally finished the third book in the Bloodlines series. I can't really believe it took me so long! I guess life caught up with me! I just couldn't focus, or didn't even have the time to read it long enough to make a significant progress. But, less hours of sleep did the trick, and here I am, writing my review.

This will be short, more of reciting my opinions of the book.
Richelle Mead did it once again. Although, in the beginning, I have to admit, I had this feeling that everything was progressing too fast. Or, it could be just me. I don't know anymore. But, I enjoyed that book very much. It provided some very intense moments, mysterioys, erotic, romantic. It managed to keep the reader on edge at some points. And, of course, once again, Mead didn't give us a romance on a plate. As soon as the things finally started to look up, the end of the book provided new obstacles for Sydney. Obstacles not only in the romantic plane, though.

All in all, a great read, I would totally recommend to fans of the series, and people that like witchcraft and vampires mixed together.

Witches 101: A Witches of East End Primer

Witches 101: A Witches of East End Primer - Melissa  de la Cruz Although I've wanted to read Blue Bloods for quite sme time now, I've never actually read anything written by Melissa de la Cruz before. And, I must say I was not let down. This short story was a prequel to her new series and a nice, enjoyable read that provided some useful information about the main characters. It has caught my attention and I'm planning to proceed reading the actual series quite soon!

Also, my first thoughts about the characters? I think I like Joanna, the mother, the most. Next is Ingrid, which it quite tight, but serious and kind. And, finally Freya. She has a beautiful name, but her character is not exactly my type. But, we'll see how that goes once their story begins for real.

I would like to make a comment about the way this short story was written. At first, everything was a little hazy, especially for me, since I hadn't read the blurb of the story. But, after some time everything started to become more and more clear. Melissa de la Cruz's writing had me captivated and made me interested in reading more of her works.

Storm Born

Storm Born  - Richelle Mead So, I finally finished that book, after almost a year. I have to admit that I bought more because it was written by Richelle Mead, rather than having been interested in the actual story. And, well, I have to admit I got a little disappointed. I could not recognize Mead's way of writing, that I had loved while reading her Vampire Academy books. It didn't have her character. But, this didn't stop me from continuing reading the story. I didn't particularly enjoy it, and I must admit that things started being more exciting after I was done with half of the book. The heroine wasn't bad, but I didn't approve of something she did. But then again, it wasn't like I got all disapproving. I just didn't care about this story enough to be upset or anything. I decided I'm not going to read the rest of the series. Until for now.

Στατιστικές μέθοδοι στις κοινωνικές επιστήμες - Αθανάσιος Κατσής, Γεώργιος Σιδερίδης, Αναστάσιος Εμβαλωτής Didn't help me at all, while studying for the lesson taught by one of the authors.

Social psychology
