sunday reading

I also hope you’re enjoying these fic recs, so here they are:

Vicious by illarione
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9561599/1/Vicious
Status: Complete

Summary: She was kidnapped to be given to the most dangerous killing machine in the world as an additional reward of his successful mission.
Mini Review:
I’m more than half way through this one. So far though, it’s not a bad plot line. Those who avoid stories because of grammatical errors, don’t read this one. It’s not that bad, but those who seriously can’t handle it, I’d avoid it. Also, there are some instances in this story that are repetitive when it comes to Bella and Edward’s relationship. You kind of want to scream, “we’ve been through this before”. However, you can say that it reflects the Edward in the original Twilight.

I Love Mr North by walkingwithgiants
Link: P2P (Pulled to Publish)

Summary: “My name is Bella Swan and I like porno.”

Mini Review:
When I first saw the summary, I didn’t know what the story would be about. I thought at first maybe it would have to do with Bella being addicted to porn. But no, that’s not what happens in the fic at all. Rosalie takes Bella to a porn convention where Bella meets Edward. She thinks he’s someone who has been dragged to the convention too. But there’s more to Edward than Bella sees, but not for long…

Birmingham by ThisIsReallyHappening
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11315602/1/Birmingham
Status: Complete

Summary: I loved her, even when she didn’t know love was possible. Most folks don’t see the beauty in that, but if they saw what I felt, maybe the world would be a little less blind. ExB. Rated M.

Mini Review:
ThisIsReallyHappening is one of those authors that I love and reread all their fics all the time. I absolutely love Birmingham, it’s not your typical fanfiction. It explores an era where new born mix-raced children were killed by society. Edward, a mix-raced child is hidden away by his white mother, Esme, who had been shunned for marrying Carlisle, a black man.
It will make you experience all sorts of emotions and shows you the reality of that era.

Breaker Baby by ThisIsReallyHappening
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11071020/1/Breaker-Baby
Status: Complete

Summary:
Mama said she wanted someone noble, upright, and godly for me. I just wanted him. Somewhere along the way, I found out what I wanted wasn’t always what I needed.

Mini Review:
Another great fic from ThisIsReallyHappening. I always love fics that are centred on small town life, but this isn’t the same small-town fic you always read. We start the story with Bella’s crazy but humorous family. At the courthouse, the whole town attends the introduction to the new sheriff, Edward Cullen. For Bella, although in denial, you can see she’s attracted and instantly interested in the new young sheriff. Through the story we see Bella and Edward’s relationship move forward but there’s also a lot of secrets that this sheriff holds.

Happy Sunday everyone!

I hope you enjoyed last week’s recs and I’m happy to share a couple more fanfic recs with you.

Saving Natalie by Frogie48
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10524552/1/Saving-Natalie
Status: Work In Progress

Summary: Bella moves into a new apartment and meets a sweet, talkative little girl named Natalie. As they get to know each other Bella notices things that worry her. One night changes everything for Natalie and Bella meets handsome police officer Edward, they set out together to give Natalie a better life.

Mini Review:
I’m always one to read Momella fics and I’m really enjoying this one. Although Bella isn’t Natalie’s mother, she transitions into that role instantly and very well. When trouble ensues, Bella meets officer Edward Cullen. Bella easily balances being mother to Natalie and starting an instant relationship with Edward. Edward also takes to Natalie effortlessly as a father figure in her life. It’s one of those sweet fics, but it does start out with some sadness in the beginning. But don’t be deterred, it’s shows Natalie adapting quickly and happily with her new life.

The Curb by Jonesn
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12133072/1/The-Curb
Status: Work In Progress

Summary: Bella’s night doesn’t go as planned when she forgets an address and stumbles upon an injured stranger instead. AH

Mini Review:
From another favourite author of mine, comes The Curb. The story starts with Bella drunkenly stumbling the streets in search for Angela’s New Year’s Eve party. In her failed attempt to find the house, she hears a moaning and injured Edward lying on the curb. Once at the hospital and after persuasion from Edward, Bella is put in charge of Edward to make sure he doesn’t sleep for 24 hours. Here Bella and Edward’s relationship starts. I’d rather keep his reason being beaten untold so that you can read the story and be hooked as I was.

Old School by bornonhalloween
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12286291/1/Old-School
Status: Complete

Summary: He’s old school, and I think I like it! 2nd Place Judges’ and Public Votes, P.S. I LOVE YOU CONTEST.

Mini Review:
This wonderful story started as a one shot for the ‘P.S I Love You’ contest and by popular demand, it was continued into a full-length story. When I first started reading this it was still a work in progress. It has now been completed a sequel has now been posted.
It’s an Olderward fanfic, but hold on, he is super sexy. Bornonhalloween writes this Edward with such manners and charm that, this is the only clue as to how old he is. He is a true gentleman, and offers Bella, a college student going to a job interview, his umbrella in the pouring rain. I can’t do justice to this fic with this mini-review. It’s more than just what I’ve explained. This type of Edward, make everyone want this type of person in their lives.

A Big Enough Umbrella: An Old School Sequel by bornonhalloween
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12508253/1/A-Big-Enough-Umbrella
Status: Work In Progress

Summary: Even a superhero has to pull on his tights one leg at a time. An “Old School” sequel as told by Umbrella Man himself. Rated M because they can’t keep their hands off each other.

Mini Review:
The whole fandom was excited to have our Umbrella Man back. I can’t wait to see what bornonhalloween gives us. It’s a story that is read as soon as the update appears.

Enjoy!

Twilight FanFiction Rec Thursday : The Last One by ericastwilight

Happy February People!

freshprince

So, I know I promised this to be a monthly thing, and I swear I was going to post one last month. I have a banner I want to share but I’ll let the author publish it first. The one I’m posting now was supposed to be the replacement but I didn’t get to finish it until now.

Ok, enough with the explanations.

This week I’ll be rec’ing:

The Last One by ericastwilight

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12290095/1/The-Last-One

Summary: It’s the hottest book of the season, every kid wants it. When two people who often clash at work go head-to-head for the last one on the shelf, who will come up the winner? A holiday fic written from a Pay it Forward prompt and for my Secret Santa last year, thank you again.

She first started posting this December 25th and the story is up to 19 chapters. The fic is still a work in progress, for those who would like to know and wait until it’s complete. It was a great story for the Christmas festiveness and is one of those fics that  I can’t wait for the next chapter update.

A small summary from me, spoilers ahead:

Bella gets a job to work as Edward’s temporary personal assistant (or so she thinks). The UST is so apparent through their banter and you just want someone to give in. Don’t worry, you don’t have to wait too long. Bella is also a mom but divorced from her ex. Edward is an uncle. Thus, when the newest book that both kids want is selling like crazy, both end up grabbing the last one.

I’ll leave the mini summary up to here, so you can go read it for yourself and find out what happens.

It’s a great romantic and festive story, with humour thrown in there too.

Happy Reading!

Twilight FanFiction Rec Thursday : Hot Tree Guy by dontlookdontask

Happy Thursday everyone!

thursday

The weekend is almost here, which allows time for everyone to put up their feet, relax and read some Twilight Fanfiction. For those who celebrate Christmas I’m sure they’ll be busy, but they can always read afterwards.

reading.gif

 With that said, I’m hoping to introduce a new segment, “Twi FF Rec Thursdays”. Basically, I shall be posting my recommendations of a Twilight Fanfiction that I think you should give a try. I am aiming to post at least once a month. The reason why only once a month is because I aim to create the banners (not official banners), just me creating and trying out my creativity.

imagination

So the fanfic that I’m recommending today has been recommended quite a lot recently. I was intending to post this a couple of months ago but I just couldn’t get the banner right. I was finally able to complete it this week, I was worried I wasn’t going to be able to get it done before Christmas. After my recommendation below, there is a mini review, like I have done in the past.

Once again, these aren’t official banners, unless I’ve stated otherwise.

Hot Tree Guy by dontlookdontask

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11687310/1/Hot-Tree-Guy

Bella has a tiny apartment, a dwindling savings fund, and a giant dog. All she wants is a nice little Christmas tree. A/H, canon couples.



By the title, I can already guess readers would think that this story would be a happy – lovey dovey fic. Although it is a sweet Christmas fic, there is more depth to the story than the title suggests. Without reading the story you would never guess the issues that the characters face. But don’t be put off by that, it also has many of those feel-good moments and sweet scenes. So if you want a Christmas Fic that also includes realistic situations, give this fic a go. 

See you next time,

Twilight Fanfiction Recs: Bus Stop By Edward’s Eternal

busstopeeV3_2 BlackBorder

Bus Stop By Edward’s Eternal

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11923603/1/Bus-Stop

Summary:

It’s Bella’s birthday. A badly fitted skirt, a cocky passenger and some unwanted help make this a bus ride, and a day she never expected.


We return to another story by one of my favourite authors, ‘Bus Stop’. 
As usual, as soon a new chapter comes out, I read!

A story of Bella, who meets her new boss, Edward, at a Bus Stop, unbeknownst to her. Their attraction is instant and their first encounter here is so funny.

I love that Edward’s Eternal coupled them up quickly and didn’t drag it out. Edward claims Bella as his straight away. He tells Bella he lacks experience in the ‘relationship’ department and claims not to be good at affection. Yet, as the story progresses, we see that he easily does so without effort.

Edward is so sensual and the passion between the two is written so well by the author.

 The story is soon on its way to being complete, so not long to go if you prefer to only read completed stories.

Twilight Fanfiction Recs: Emma Matthews By Anton M

EmmaMatthewsFinal

Emma Matthews By Anton M

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11510042/1/Emma-Matthews

Summary:

Isabella has been cooperating with the DEA under her father’s nose. A video footage reveals her involvement, her brother murders their father, and she agrees to be a key witness in federal criminal cases against an ex-judge, a congressman, and an array of criminals, including her brother. Olderward, AH


‘Emma Matthews’ is another one of those stories where I can’t wait for the next update and I’m always checking my inbox for a new chapter.

So we have Edward as a Deputy Marshal, I love Edward in these types of roles, and we have a smart Bella in this story. Edward is assigned to protect Bella until she can be stand as a the key witness of the prosecution. Before that happens, Anton M takes us on a journey of the tribulations that Bella and Edward must face to keep themselves alive.

It is a great read and there’s a lot I would rather not spoil, so there are a few surprises along the way.

Anton M is a great writer, the story that captivated me was ‘Alaska’. She’s also written others, so be sure to check them out. But Alaska is just AMAZING, so here is the link:

I’ve stuck with her writing and can’t wait for her next update.

Twilight Fanfiction Recs: Tougher Than The Rest By KoalaLou

TTTR2

Tougher Than The Rest by KoalaLou. – Complete

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/106713…/…/Tougher-Than-The-Rest

Summary:
I didn’t expect my weekend to consist of anything more than a family wedding…then I met Bella and my world was blown apart. Could I accept her reality, once I’d finally learned what that even was? A/H


I absolutely loved this fic. I loved the relationship between these characters. I don’t want to give too much away in case I spoil it for new readers. But they’re just so adorable. 🙂

Twilight Fanfiction Recs: Compromised By Edward’s Eternal

Compromised By Edward’s Eternal

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11914596/1/Compromised

Summary:
Requiring flowers, Edward stops at a small shop and leaves with more than he bargained for. Can the free-spirited girl be the one thing in his life he didn’t know he was missing?


One of my long time favourite authors. I read every single story she publishes.

I am also reading her current story Bus Stop, which I will eventually make a banner for. I loved Compromised and I am loving Bus Stop, can’t wait for next chapter.
