Welcome to the world of the Angelheart Saga
Welcome to the website of YA author Annie Woods! This is the place to be if you’re looking for more information about the Angelheart Saga trilogy or about YA books in general.
When I saw the #coffeebooktag on Kristin Kraves Books’s and Paper Fury’s blogs I could not pass up the chance to do it! I’m a true coffee addict, I need at least one (often two) cups of coffee in the morning before I can even begin to function. So this felt like the perfect tag for me! If you’re a coffee lover as well and would like to join in, then I hereby officially tag you!
So here goes:
BLACK COFFEE: NAME A SERIES THAT’S TOUGH TO GET INTO BUT HAS HARDCORE FANS.
I think I'm gonna go with Game of Thrones here. Or The Lord of the Rings. I've really enjoyed both these TV series/movies, but for some reason the books have been so though to get into for me. They sure have hardcore fans though (my husband for one...).
PEPPERMINT MOCHA: NAME A BOOK THAT GETS MORE POPULAR DURING THE WINTER OR A FESTIVE TIME OF YEAR.
This one is definitely The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis for me. The film/series was shown on Swedish TV during Christmas when I was a kid, why I think of these as Christmas books. I loved the books so much when I was a pre-teen, would love to re-read them now, sure I will love them still.
HOT CHOCOLATE: WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHILDREN’S BOOK?
If I have to choose one “life-time” favorite book (children’s book or adult book), it would have to be the Harry Potter series. To me, those books are pure book perfection! The way J.K. Rowling has created a whole universe on her own and all the characters that you love and carry with you in your heart forever. With Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling has also helped so many troubled and lonely children, giving them hope and bringing them joy, it’s utterly amazing. There’s even a research study proving that the Harry Potter books help children to be more accepting of LGBT persons, so the books are literally making the world a better place.
DOUBLE SHOT OF ESPRESSO: NAME A BOOK THAT KEPT YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT FROM START TO FINISH.
A book that got me out of a reading slump and really got me hooked was Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. It kept me up all night, I just couldn’t put it down. I loved the way Rainbow Rowell kept you in suspense. This story is the complete opposite of insta love, you had to wait almost the whole book to find out if the two main characters loved each other or hated each other, if they would end up together or if they would kill each other first. So good! Read my full review here: Carry On
STARBUCKS: NAME A BOOK YOU SEE EVERYWHERE.
Lately, because of the movies, it’s been Love, Simon (Simon vs. The Home Sapien’s Agenda) by Becky Albertelli and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I’ve just bought Love, Simon and am so excited to start reading it. (Will probably not read Ready Player One though, was not at all intrigued by the movie.)
THAT HIPSTER COFFEE SHOP: GIVE A BOOK BY AN INDIE AUTHOR A SHOUTOUT
Lose Me by M.C. Frank sure deserves a shoutout. This book completely blew me away! My feelings are all over the place, this book made me laugh, cry, it broke my heart and made me angry, and it made me love the characters to death all at once. Read my full review here: Lose Me
I also want to give a shoutout for the wonderful authors Joey Paul and Haley Rhoades and for the amazing The Book Robin Hoods initiative. There are so many great indie authors out there that deserve some more attention, and this initiative created by M.C. Frank is a way to create a platform for writers and readers to meet.
OOPS! I ACCIDENTALLY GOT DECAF: NAME A BOOK YOU WERE EXPECTING MORE FROM.
One of the most disappointing books ever for me was Allegient by Veronica Roth. I loved Divergent so, so much, I was totally hooked by it. But sadly, Allegient was not at all the finale I had hoped for. I felt that it did not try to resolve any of the old conflicts built up in the previous two books, it kind of just changed completely and took a U-turn to a completely other issue, the ‘genetically pure’ vs. ‘genetically damaged’, and thereby almost dismissed the dystopian Chicago world as though it had never happened. The ‘life-and-death´, larger-than-life´´, struggle just boiled down to a big ‘What?’, ‘Was this all? Really?’ for me.
Another book that didn’t disappoint, but did not live up to its full potential was The Rift Uprising by Amy S. Foster. When I read the synopsis I was so intrigued and I had such high expectations. I loved the concept of The Rift, but the book did not really live up to its full potential. I quite enjoyed it, but I felt that it could have been so much better if just some things had been changed.

THE PERFECT BLEND: NAME A BOOK OR SERIES THAT WAS BOTH BITTER AND SWEET, BUT ULTIMATELY SATISFYING.
If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo. This book is such an important, eye-opener that it should be among required reading in school. But it’s also an amazing, powerful, heart-wrenching and beautiful story that deserves to be read on its own merits. This is a story that will stay with me forever. I loved this book to pieces and I recommend it with all my heart! Read my full review here: If I was Your Girl
