Throwback Thursday #3

Throwback Thursday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by me and Christina @ Booksane where we feature books that we've read in the past but are still crazy about. It could be a book you read as a child and still remember and love or maybe just a book that you haven't read in a long time and want to show your love for.
Each week we'll be featuring a new random question to answer!

My Throwback pick of the week:

Darkfever (Fever #1) by Karen Marie Moning
Mass Market Paperback, 342 pages
Published August 26th 2008 by Dell (first published October 1st 2006)

"My name is MacKayla, Mac for short. I'm a sidhe-seer, one who sees the Fae, a fact I accepted only recently and very reluctantly.

My philosophy is pretty simple - any day nobody's trying to kill me is a good day in my book. I haven't had many good days lately. Not since the walls between Man and Fae came down. But then, there's not a sidhe-seer alive who's had a good day since then."

When MacKayla's sister was murdered, she left a single clue to her death - a cryptic message on Mac's cel phone. Journeying to Ireland in search of answers, Mac is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to master a power she had no idea she possessed - a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae...

As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister's death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysteriou Jericho...while at the same time, the ruthless V'lane - an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women - closes in on her. As the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac's true mission becomes clear: to find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book - because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control both worlds in their hands...

To say that Darkfever (and this series) is one of my favorites, is an understatement. I can say that this book is my favorite current fantasy series. It's brilliant! I can't even express enough how much I love it. Even now there are still so many questions that I need answered. But I probably will never get all the answered even though the series is still going... And yet I crave more and more of this genius series.
All the characters are so addicting! Mac, Barrons (q,gkqjhkqhjzkh), V'lane, Christian, Dani, etc... :D <3

Quote from Darkfever:
"Last night you said you wanted to know what to expect so you could better select your attire. I told you we were going to visit a vampire in a Goth-den tonight. Why, then, Ms. Lane, do you look like a perky rainbow?"

(I'm so proud of myself for only featuring 1 quote because with this book I could go on forever! xD)

Question of this week:

Do you listen to music while reading?

Never actually. I need the quiet while I am reading or I have a hard time concentrating. I can read while people are around me and maybe when the tv is on but I prefer it to be silent, so definitely no listening to music while I'm reading for me. 

How about you?

  1. That book is just waiting on my Kindle for me to read it. Guess I better start it!!

  2. I love this series too! One of my all-time favorites...Barrons...yum! That quote is one of the ones that I use to convince people to try the book out. Thanks for hosting!

    1. Barrons is something, isn't he? :D It's one of my favorite quotes. <3

  3. Replies
    1. Was it bothering you all this time? xD

    2. Nah, but it was the only logical choice after you chose Artemis Fowl. Of course I should have thought...Darkfever. :P

    3. So many choices really. But next one is gonna be a real throwback. ^^

  4. Gah, Darkfever ♥! Seeing this makes me feel kind of desperate to re-read this entire series! These are the kind of books that deserve multiple re-reads I think :D Barrons alone makes me want to get lost in this one ;) Awesome pick ^^
