Each book is unique.
Everything Everything by Nicola yoon Is a fictional contemporary about a 18 year old girl named Madeline Whittier. While most people are allergic to dust, dirt, and pollen. But Madeline she is allergic to the world. Ever since she was a child she has been stuck in her house, she only gets to see two people: her mother and her nurse Clara. Everything seems to be in a continuous pattern: wake up, do school, read, and sleep. But one day everything changes. Olly moves in next door.
Many people say that falling in love won't kill you. But in Madelines case that might not be true.
Everything everything was absolutely beautiful. The characters were well developed. It is written in short stories, or diary format. There isn't much to say without spoilers. Just go and read it, if you love romance novels then this is the book for you.
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas took me forever to read. Not because it was long, just once I got about half way through the book I stopped reading because I was unhappy with the characters decisions. This book I believe was way better the "Throne of Glass."
Crown of Midnight had a ton of plot twists. And every chapter had you craving for more. Not only was in adventurist, It was also romantic. This book had me laughing, crying, and swooning. It was so worth the read.
Crown of Midnight is about Celaena, who is now the kings Champion trying to complete all of the kings assignments.
Loved it! Not much in the none spoiler section. This is a must read!
3.5/5 stars for the second book in the Throne of Glass novels.
Well, here we are. I never thought I would see the day when I would actually be writing a review for the novel Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. Because you see, I was one of those people who automatically hate twilight just because everyone else loved it.
Twilight really surprised me, in a good way. Like I said originally It was an absurd thought to be reading twilight, and in fact enjoying it. But I did.
The story, if you didn't already know is about a 17 year old girl named Bella, who moves to a small town to live with her dad. There, she attends a small high school. And meets a family of vampires. But not only does she grow to love this family, she also fall head of heals in love with one in particular.
The only bad thing it that Edward is scared to hurt Bella. Which causes drama. Then something terrible happens. And Edward and Bella have to question what they want more,
each others company, or Bellas safety.
Twilight was a page turner from the very begging. Never let it be said that Twilight is "gross","boring","Cheesy" or "predictable." Because after devouring it in one sitting I was shocked that people would say such negative things about such an amazing book. Not only was the plot flawless, but the character development was perfectly added into plot, making you love or hate, the characters more and more as you read.
Twilight did nothing less than exceed my expectations, and this book is obviously one of New York Times best sellers for a reason.
I give twilights heart warming vampires a 3.5/5
I highly recommend reading it, and am currently reading the next book in the saga so plan on another review.
The kiss of deception by Mary E. Pearson, is about a princess who run away from being married to live in a small town on her family's territory. She changes her name and lives with her best friends aunt. she starts to become comfortable in the town, but little does she know that the prince she was going to marry and an assassin trained to kill her are right under her nose.
Okay now that we have to description done, lets get to this review.
First off, the book starts off amazing. A girl running away from home, the thrill, the romance. Oh I loved this book.
It is done in different points of view, and doesn't have much of a boring part which is right up my ally. It is more romanced orientated then action orientated. I loved loved loved it. This book is a must read! Be sure to pick up the second book too because it has a cliff hanger at the end.
let me know what you thought of the book if you have read it.
4/5 stars for the kiss of deception
So this book, is basically a mix between, the 5th wave and shatter me. It had so many plot twists, I just, I just couldn't. My mind was so blown after this book.
Okay, the characters relationships were amazing. Just how Liam, Ruby, Chub and Zu acted around each other was heart warming. They were like one big bad family with crazy superpowers.
In the beginning of the book I was like, ugh why is this so stupid, what is it with this Sam character? Why is Ruby so weak?
Finally it got to a point in which I couldn't put it down. It has so many cute parts, that just made my heart swell.
WARNING THE NEXT PART HAS A SMALL BIT OF SPOILERS
Now this book, the ending. Let says it put Allegiant in its place. And this is only the first book! It was really took quite a long time to read, but it was sooo worth it in the end.
Now back to normal happy book reviews..
Mind you, if you read this book be sure to purchase the second book too, so you don't have to wait in mind blowing anger and sadness, like I did.
The darkest minds gets a 3.5 out of 5 stars for just making it so nice and happy and sad and funny and everything amazing. Alexandra Bracken thank you so much for making this book! It gave me the mind blown awesomeness feeling I have been wanting for a long time.
It has been a while since I read a modern book. You know, pure fiction that is a bit real. I don't know what the actual definition of this book is but it has been a while.
The book the sliver star, which I don't really get why she named it that. follows a girl named "Bean"(explains her name in the book) and her sister Liz. As they try and survive, while their mother constantly needs to be on her own leaving them to figure out what to do. One day beans and liz's mother, decides she needs some alone time for a little longer then normal and leaves the girls alone at their house with only enough money to last a few months. One day while their mom is gone, a police car shows up at their house and thats when they decided to high heel it out of their to visit their Uncle (who which their mother hates) in Virginia. And most of the story is about them living in Virginia. The book is more character based then plot based. But it does have an equal amount of character building, and plot building. The plot I must say isn't very thick, and is very predictable. Even though it is predictable I loved how the book frames the injustices of the world. I feel like it was predictable because that is actually how the world works.
The ending was a bit of an "eh" it could have been better. but it was satisfying enough.
I did actually find myself getting really into the book about 2 chapters in. It wasn't so boring as I expected and I loved beans personality. I enjoyed the book and it was incredibly well written and had some really good long beautiful words that I actually had to use a dictionary to understand.
hehe really an interesting book. 3.5 stars out of 5 for The sliver star.
P.S I do plan on reading more of Jeannette Walls books.
It is 1970 in a small town in California. “Bean” Holladay is twelve and her sister, Liz, is fifteen when their artistic mother, Charlotte, takes off to find herself, leaving her girls enough money to last a month or two. When Bean returns from school one day and sees a police car outside the house, she and Liz decide to take the bus to Virginia, where their widowed Uncle Tinsley lives in the decaying mansion that’s been in Charlotte’s family for generations.
An impetuous optimist, Bean soon discovers who her father was, and hears stories about why their mother left Virginia in the first place. Money is tight, and the sisters start babysitting and doing office work for Jerry Maddox, foreman of the mill in town, who bullies his workers, his tenants, his children, and his wife. Liz is whip-smart--an inventor of word games, reader of Edgar Allan Poe, nonconformist, but when school starts in the fall, it’s Bean who easily adjusts, and Liz who becomes increasingly withdrawn. And then something happens to Liz in the car with Maddox.
Jeannette Walls has written a deeply moving novel about triumph over adversity and about people who find a way to love each other and the world, despite its flaws and injustices.
So the blood red road by Moira Young is said to be better than hunger games, and it so is! Remember this is coming from someone who found hunger games kinda, um, boring.
I am a huge thriller, horror and excitement kinda book lover. So when hunger games comes out and does't give me enough heart pounding moments, I tend to call it "boring". But we aren't here to review hunger games.
The blood red road, gave me about 4 of those heart pounding moments that I am always craving for. It is a really book to fill the craving and make you want to read more. You can't put it down! I was up till midnight reading this baby! When I first saw this book I read the little blurb on the cover andI was worried it would be a sappy story based off of family. But trust me it isn't.
I love that the main character, Saba, is strong yet also cries. That is something I find proves that she isn't all stone and rock but still is human. A lot of characters these days seem to just be strong and hard as rock. I like to see that Moira Young isn't fallowing the basic mold for a main character but being unique. It is super fast to read, the only thing I should warn you about is the writing. Now be aware it is written in the way they talk (amazing world building technique), Which is the worst english ever. But don't get discouraged, you get used to it in about 2 or 3 chapters. Also there are no quotation marks when character is speaking. It does drive you crazy for about 2 chapters but then your mind figures it out and it's fine.
This book in a few words:
Saba the main character is going to find her twin brother who has gotten kidnapped. It is a crazy world out where she is looking for him, very dystopian like. While in the random journey to find her brother, she meets this cutie named Jack and a bunch of girls who are basically in a tough girls club. Lots of adventure happens, and at the ending I wasn't sure if it was a series or not because the ending is just evily perfect. I would give it 3 out of 5 stars. I am defiantly going to read the rest of the series.
ACCORDING TO GOODREADS:
Saba lives in Silverlake, a wasteland ravaged by constant sandstorms where her family scavenge from landfills left by the long-gone Wrecker civilization. After four cloaked horsemen kidnap her beloved twin brother Lugh, she teams up with daredevil Jack and the Free Hawks, a girl gang of Revolutionaries.
Saba learns that she is a fierce fighter, an unbeatable survivor, and a cunning opponent. And she has the power to take down a corrupt society from the inside. Saba and her new friends stage a showdown that change the course of her civilization.
Well, well, well, another book from Rick Yanceys series The 5th Wave. And yes it fulfilled my expectations. And no it better not be the last book in the series.
The ending does suggest there being a 3rd book in creation.
The Infinite sea, is the continuation from The 5th Wave. It starts off with explaining what the 5th wave is (Which is a bit unnerving). Then going into the point of view of a girl named Ringer. Yes she is a girl. It is hard to figure out in the begging but you figure it out.
Most of the story is from Ringers point of view. There isn't much I can say without spoilers. But trust me this book keeps you on the edge of your seat. It does get a bit disturbing, which is expected in The 5th Wave series, but it isn't a lot and should be enough to stomach. The ending is such a twist, oh my gosh. Rick Yancey HAS TO make a 3rd book. Because I can't wait to eat the one up like I did this one. Loved the book. Another 5 stars for Yancey!
From The official website http://www.the5thwaveiscoming.com/books:
How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.
Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.
Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.
Omg. Omg.OMGGGG. This book. Omg this book was so good. So So So much better then the first one(Uglies). Was a bit similar to the uglies but much much better. It was a real page turner. It once again got boring for just a little bit, but like normal with this series the ending made up for it. The cover makes it look like it should be a romance novel and really includes a love story but honestly it just made me mad. Comment if you know what i'm talking about. It got into some exciting parts, a real adventure. But you can totally see some of the story coming. I don't have much to say in regards the the books itself other than that it was satisfying. Comment on what you thought if you have read the book.
Gorgeous. Popular. Perfect.
Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes are awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she's completely popular. It's everything she's ever wanted.
But beneath all the fun -- the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom -- is a nagging sense that something's wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what's wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops cold.
Now she has to choose between fighting to forget what she knows and fighting for her life -- because the authorities don't intend to let anyone with this information survive.
So The 5th Wave. Looks like a freak book, Well it is. It seriously gets you so freaked out sometimes. Now its about a girl named Cassie who is "the last person alive" or so she thinks....MAWHHAHA lol really had to do that. Because dang it really, really,really was evil. This book made me never put it down. Like I had to go to the bathroom and was like no wait let me just hold it so I can read. Honestly I haven't read a book this good in a long time. Any who this book like half of it is flash backs. Its like so strange because you sometimes have to figure out who is narrating. Because it doesn't really tell you whose point of view it is. Their are about 3 different point of views in the book. But it is mainly Cassies POV. Its super crazy Sci-Fi thriller. Can be disturbing, and totally crazy. I can't really compare it to any other book I have read. So relatable though. I think it should be a contemporary because it has the feeling that makes you be like, Oh yeah I would totally do that if I were you! See if the world was ending and I was in Cassies shoes I would do the same thing. It is also funny(Sometimes) and sad and inspiring and crazy and SUCH A GOOD BOOK! Loved it! Comment on what you thought. Oh also, just to blow your mind. THEY ARE MAKING A MOVIE. See the blog for that post coming soon!
PS: there is a bit of love so keep reading the book till u get there.(the flashbacks are worth it)
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker.
Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
