The Secret Diamond Sisters Special + DAF Release Part 2 + mini NaNoWriMo announcement||October 28

So, the Halloween week post is canceled for today because Diamonds Are Forever came out yesterday and I thought I’d do a special Secret Diamond Sisters themed post. Also, yesterday, Michelle Madow, the author of the series followed me on Twitter and since then we’ve been keeping in touch via Twitter Messenger and it’s seriously been the best talking to her. She is the kindest and most amazing person I have ever texted and I hope that one day I will be able to meet her in person. If you want to follow my Twitter it is @AlainaBagan.

Moving along. So, as most of you should know by now, Michelle’s newest book and the third installment in the TSDS series was released yesterday (October 27) and instead of just letting my little birthday shoutout of the book flow, I decided that I would put together a special post in honor of this amazing series.

So, about book one, The Secret Diamond Sisters:


I borrowed this book off of my friend back in March and fell in love. It was so intriguing and I needed the next book in the series right after I finished the first. But that didn’t happen for quite a while. When you read this book, you get deeply immersed in the world of the Diamond sisters that you just can’t stop reading. In this book, you get to read through the views of Courtney, Peyton and Savannah Diamond as they struggle through the ties of moving from a small Callifornian town to Las Vegas. After their grandmother took their mother to rehab for her alcohol problems, their father gives them a call after years of not keeping in contact with them. And, their father just so happens to be THE Adrian Diamond, multimilionaire, hotel owner. They get to live a life in Vegas now and it is all just starting. Savannah loves it there. It’s like shopaholic heaven to her. On the other hand, Peyton and Courtney aren’t too fond of life in Vegas. What could go wrong in Vegas with Adrian Diamond as your father? Almost everything.

Book two, Diamonds in the Rough:


Diamond in the Rough…..OMG. It was phenomenal! The Diamond sisters got through their first summer in Vegas and are starting school. On the first day of school, Savannah dressed up way too much, and in the end, looked way different then the other students at the private school. By lunch that day, Savannah had already bumped into Damien and the two of them plan to pursue Savannah’s YouTube career together. Courtney, once again can’t handle her feelings for Brett and, in the end, “re-falls” in love with him. Peyton, on the other hand, does the impossible. She may be falling in love with one of her teachers. And then there’s Madison. The Diamond sisters’ arch-nemesis, is keeping a deadly secret that might bring her and the sisters together.

And now, Book three, the newly released Diamonds Are forever.


I really wish I could’ve got an ARC (advanced reader’s copy) of this book beforehand, but I didn’t. So, I’ll have to go off of what I know is going to happen. In the third and final installment in this series, the Diamond sisters go on their family private jet over the mountains. It’s not like anything could go wrong with that. But, as the story moves along, Savannah and singer/songwriter Perry Myles take their relationship to the next level. Is Perry the right guy for Savannah or should she go back for Damien? As Savannah’s relationship goes up, so does Courtney’s. Her and Brett decided that they couldn’t hide their feelings forever and as their parent’s wedding approaches, they’re going to have to reveal their secret soon. Courtney and Brett aren’t the only ones with a secret. Madison has one too and she is prepared to reveal it to the sisters, as she may need their help with something. And then there’s Peyton, who is still trying to figure out what her future is going to look like.

This series is incredible! A mix of humor and serious topics mix together for a must-read. Everyone should read this series, even if it doesn’t sound interesting to you, give it a go because you might be surprised by how good it is. 😀

Top Ten Favorite Books + Diamonds are Forever Release||October 27

Top Ten Tuesday

Sorry I wasn’t able to post yesterday, I had too many things I wanted to do and not enough time to do them all. So, to make up for yesterdays post, I’m going to post on Thursday. P.S. today is my double, non-halloween related posts.

My Top Ten Favorite Books:

1. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout.


For those who have never read this book, you have to go and get it. It is brilliantly amazing. Jennifer’s books are beyond amazing and everyone needs to go buy them. I’ve read the whole Lux series and I swear, all of your emotions will be swirling around in your mind when you finish the series. Now, I’ll stop ranting and tell you a bit about the book. Katy Swartz, a book loving blogger didn’t think she would ever come face to face with a group of aliens. But when she moves to West Virginia, her neighbours just so happen to be aliens. Dee, a lovely girl who becomes Katy’s best friend; and Daemon, aka the hottie with extreme mood swings. For the most part he’s just a jerk but at times, he is really sweet. This book is a must read for anybody.

2. Prodigy by Marie Lu


This book is the second book in the Legend trilogy and it shows true love at its best. I’m pretty sure I read the last one hundred pages while in math class last year and I was in tears when I finished. In the second installment in this series, June and Day return, only to find out the Elector Primo is dead. The Elector’s son, Anden is placed into his position. June and Day team up with the patriots and determine a plan to assasinate Anden. You’ll have to read the book to figure out if the assasination plan works.

3. The Secret Diamond Sisters by Michelle Madow


This book was extraordinary! Have you ever imagined living most of your life with a drunk mother and then all of a sudden, moving to Las Vegas to live with your rich father in a high end penthouse. That’s what life is like for Savannah, Courtney and Peyton Diamond. Partying every night is their new routine. But, what if, dating the wrong people is a storyline that ran into this book? Read it to find out.

4. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey


Only read this book if you are prepared to read about aliens, violence and death, a lot of death. Besides the fact of a lot of death, this book is still super epic. Cassie Sullivan lived a normal life…..that was, until the first wave came around. The first wave left darkness. The second left a tsunami so big, it wiped out all of any coastal cities. The third injected extreme viruses into innocent humans, leaving them with a slow and dreadful death. The fourth dealt with killing the rest of the human population using “silencers”. The fifth is what nobody suspected. Innocent children set up to kill the rest of the world.

5. Ink by Amanda Sun


Ink isn’t a book that most people have read but, we have to make that change. Katie Green moves to Japan after her mother’s devastating death only to find herself trapped in the world of the kami. Meeting Tomohiro should’ve gone better than it had. It all started when Katie made the mistake of looking at a fallen picture; a picture that moved. After that, Tomo was really rude towards Katie but she didn’t care; she stalked him anyways. Until one day, when Tomo was drawing at a park, he noticed her and invited her to sit with him.

6. Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout


This book is the fourth installment in the Lux series and is one of the most heart-wrenching books you’ll ever read. At the end of Opal, what happened to Dawson and Beth, happened to Katy and Daemon; except this time they were separated. You get to see the different views of Daemon and Katy and how they get through without one another. With the help of Luc, Daemon attempts to save Katy, but instead falls into the hands of Nancy Husher. What will Nancy do with him? Continue the bestselling Lux series to find out.

7. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick


This book was so lovely. I really related to Sam and couldn’t handle the hottie boyfriend she had. Like lets just take a second…….JASE!!!!!!! He was amazing. But, I got to say, Andy was my favorite. Okay, I guess I’ll stop ranting and talk a bit about the novel. Samantha Reed has lived beside the Garrett’s all of her life. riotous and messy, her mother despised them, but she sat at her window every night watching them. Until one night, one of them actually climbs onto her roof to sit with her. What will happen next? Read it to find out.

8. After(wattpad edition) by Anna Todd


I know this is more of an older level book but, I read it anyways. And, I actually liked it. A lot of people hated this book but I enjoyed the topic of college romance. But, while reading this book, I felt really bad for Tessa. Not being able to talk Zayn because of Harry must’ve been torture. I do actually suggest this book so, go ahead and read it.

9.Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi


Okay, let me just say, Juliette was so Fierce. It was unbelievable. Juliette hasn’t touched a human in 264 days. The last time she touched one, it counted as murder and she got locked up by the Reestablishment. Nobody knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal, I guess that’s just how life goes. One day, a boy named Adam is sent into her cell room as a “room mate” but was secretly working with the reestablishment. After a long time of not being able to touch Juliette, Adam finally does and quickly finds out that the touch isn’t deadly towards him.

10. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner


Lilac LaRoux, the daughter of a well-known rich father runs into Tarver Merendsen while aboard the Icarus. Taarver, the opposite of Lilac, works within the ship. One night, the ship goes out of Hyperspace, killing everyone on the ship except Lilac and Tarver. The two of them are left alone on a mysterious planet with only themselves and ration bars.

Happy Book Release Diamonds are Forever!


This series by Michelle Madow is amazing and a must read for everyone. Happy book birthday.
