Stephanie Beerden

Stephanie Beerden was born on Friday the 13th (no joke, she really was) in a small city called Genk and has always been fascinated with the occult, magic and books. Her childhood and teen years were filled with reading lots and lots of books and imagining what life would be like as a real Vampire. Until one day she decided that she wanted to try her hand at writing her own books and that was the beginning of her writing adventure. Her first book is a YA Fantasy called De Elementen – Het Verloren Koninkrijk and after many, many trials and tribulations, one small Dutch publisher decided “Hey, let’s give this girl a shot”. Her second book De Elementen – Archandir has recently been published by same publisher and she couldn’t be happier about that. Stephanie hopes to keep writing as long as she can and already has several writing projects in the works for the future.

Divine by Mistake  - P.C. Cast Alright, this review will be short because there is not much to say about this book in my opinion.It was boring… Plain and simple.I was actually really disappointed when I started reading the book. I’ve read Cast’s House of the Night series and enjoyed them so far. But Divine by Mistake was such a freaking bore to read, I almost cried after the 120th page. Even more disappointing (because this has never happened to me before and I really mean never!), I didn’t even finish the damned book!And it’s a goddamn shame because it’s not actually that bad of a story and some of the characters like ClanFintan are really interesting. But having to read over and over about Shannon babbling to herself in her head, the stupid decisions she made (seriously she did make some stupid mistakes) and then the fact that she’s supposed to be 35! I mean c’mon, I was hanging with my mouth open when I read Shannon’s age, 35, really? Some of the things ‘she’ said and thought were so childish and juvenile, so immature for a woman who’s on her way to being forty. And okay everyone can be a bit childish or juvenile at times, even older people. But with Shannon it was a constant, she did not change or grow at all in the book and that annoyed me.It really is a shame, it just shows me that not all books by the same author will be just as good. I just hope, I mean reeeaaaallllyyy HOPE that the second book will be better and that Shannon will grow as a character.So my rating for this book? 2 stars, for all the above reasons.Original review on: http://booknutstephanie.blogspot.be/2013/05/review-divine-by-mistake-by-pc-cast.html
