Title: Isla and the Happily Ever After Series: Anna and the French Kiss #3 Author: Stephanie Perkins Format: Hardback, 352 pages Rating: 3.75 stars Recommend it to?: Again anyone who liked the ones before this :]
My Review:As much as i wanted to like this one as well as the others, i just couldn't.
story was so not okay with me. First, why did Isla suddenly freak out
so badly on Josh?! she went all crazy eye and lashed out!
Title: The Testing Series: The Testing #1 Author: Joelle Charbonneau Format: Hardback, 336 pages Rating: 5 stars! Recommend it to?: Hunger Games fans.
My Review:i loved this book from the first few pages.
this book is very much like the Hunger Games, i understand some
people's angry about it's just like it. i do see how they think that, am
i angry about it? no. the story may follow kinda the same thing but
there is much more to it and honestly minus a few details, all 3 hunger
games books are pretty much the same story anyhow so you shouldn't get
so mad about this.
I'm happy about the strong female main
character, Cia. She's amazing. She does make mistakes but learns. The
love story part was a little forced i think, but at least it wasn't the
main story line.
Overall, i really liked this book and i like how the story went.
Title: Anna and the French Kiss Series: Anna and the French Kiss #1 Author: Stephanie Perkins Format: Hardback, 372 pages Rating: 4.25 stars Recommend it to?: those in need of a light, romantic read!
usually don't read books likes Anna, i usually stay away from any book
where the main theme is love. I just don't like how far fetched most of
them are or the main girl is a horrible role model. But this book was
very good :]
I did have trouble finishing this in the past, i
usually always got to 40% and just forgot about it, but once i got my
hands on the hardback, i was hooked at the 45% mark and couldn't put it
Overall this was a light, romantic read and i enjoyed it :]
Title: Prince of Wolves
Series: The Grey Wolves #1
Author: Quinn Loftis
Format: Kindle Cloud Reader
Rating: .75 stars
Recommend to?: NO ONE!!!!
Goodread's Bio: Jacque
Pierce was just an ordinary 17-year-old girl getting ready to start her
senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious
foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque
and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two
weeks of their summer are going to get a lot more interesting.
the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a
pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is
drawn to is actually a Canis lupis, werewolf, and she just happens to be
his mate; the other half of his soul.
My Review: I'll try to be as nice as i can
about this book, but seeing as how i feel the need to jump ahead in my
review backlog to do this book should scream red flags
RED FLAG #1: It comes off as written by maybe a 14yr old girl who says ya and ya'll a lot!!!
RED FLAG #2: Main character starts hearing voices and isn't even concerned!
RED FLAG #3: Main character then tells 2 best friends about voice, still no one is concerned!!!
FLAG #4: Foreign exchange student moves in across street and main
character then realizes it's him talking to her in her mind and talks
back, STILL NO ONE SEEMS CONCERNED!!!
RED FLAG #5: Foreign exchange student tells main character he's a werewolf and she's his mate, NO CONCERN, JUST ACCEPTANCE!!
RED FLAG #6: Foreign exchange student tells host family he's a werewolf, JUST ACCEPTANCE!!!!!
WTH!!!! and that's all in the first like half of the book. There's
only one main event in this book and that's all they talked about for
30% of the book. Then said even happens near the 90% mark, it's not very
eventful at all. Then they live happily ever after.
I really can't see how this series can be 8 books, nor do i
understand how most of the books rating are over 4 stars! i just don't
Overall, unless you're a 12 yr old Texas girl who wants to read someone else's diary, stay away!
Title: While We Run Series: When We Wake #2 Author: Karen Healey Format: Hardback, 336 pages Rating: 4.25 stars Recommend it to: Science Fiction fans :]
Goodread's Bio: Abdi
Taalib thought he was moving to Australia for a music scholarship. But
after meeting the beautiful and brazen Tegan Oglietti, his world was
turned upside down. Tegan's no ordinary girl - she died in 2027, only to
be frozen and brought back to life in Abdi's time, 100 years later.
all they want is for things to return to normal (or as normal as they
can be), but the government has other ideas. Especially since the two
just spilled the secrets behind Australia's cryonics project to the
world. On the run, Abdi and Tegan have no idea who they can trust, and
when they uncover startling new details about Project Ark, they realise
thousands of lives may be in their hands
My review: Wow. This was a perfect sequel, it flowed perfect from the first book.
This one thou is from Abdi's POV, which was awesome. I loved seeing his view on the issues and how he saw the others.
The action is this book was sick, in a good way :] there was lots of it and i loved it all.
The plot twist was nice :] and now i badly need to see how this series will end.
The only issue i had was that i wish there was more of a development in Abdi and Tegan's relationship.
Title: Night of the Purple Moon Series: Toucan #1 Author: Scott Cramer Format: Kindle Cloud, 187 pages Rating: 4.5 Stars Time to Read: About 3hrs Recommend it to: End of the world fans!

She must help her brother and baby sister survive in this new world,
but all the while she has a ticking time bomb inside of
My Review:This book is great! i was hooked from the started and was on the edge of my seat for the majority of the story!
Comet passes over and releases a deadly pathogen into the air and kills everyone over puberty age! Great! :]
I loved how it showed so far into the future and how they were dealing. It really could've easily be a 400 page book!!!
I'm not sure how many of you already know about swagbucks but for those of you who don't, they're awesome :]
All you have to do is watch a few
videos, and not even watch them all the way, just the first 30seconds
or so, and you get 3 swagbucks for every 10 videos. it takes me maybe
5mins to do that, and i do it while i'm doing this :]
You can answer the daily poll for 1 swagbuck every day.
You can search the web using it
too and get some bucks that way too. i just have it set up to search for
9gag as my home page on my phone so every time i open a new window it
searches and i usually get 6 or 8 swagbucks every day for just that :]
So why should you be doing this?!
For every 450 swagbucks you can get a $5 amazon giftcard and you can buy a book or two :]
And if you're awesome enough and use my refer link:

Title: Brew Series: Salem's Revenge #1 Author: David Estes Format: PDF file, 454 pages Rating: 4.75 stars Time to Read: 2 days Recommend it to?: Anyone who likes reading about bad witches getting their butts kicked!
My Review:OH MY GOODNESS!!!
I couldn't put this down at all, i put off work for this book! i just kept turning the page!
humans fear things we can't explain, and instead of embracing, we
destroy. Salem's Return, humans killing "witches" without any proper
evidence. Well the real witches in the world didn't like that too much,
so they fight back. Salem's Revenge, all the different witches and
warlocks gang up to destroy humans. They do a pretty good job of
whipping out a good majority of us in a single day. Rhett Carter's
family is killed and he becomes a witch hunter.
whole story is told from Rhett POV. He's a book blogger :] so that
scores some points with me! He's also a jock, football player! He's a
bit of a coward in the beginning but the world makes hard.
amazing. She doesn't take shiz from anyone and says whatever the heck
she wants! All she cares about is her sisters safety and maybe Rhett
towards the end :] she's my witch killing side kick :]
Overall: This is a must read and everyone needs to read this!! it's filled with action and love :]

My Review: This shall be short and sweet!
This book was so good!
Angels attacking us and stealing little kids for gosh knows what!!

I started World After as soon as i finished this and am already in love with it as well :
Title: Alice in Zombieland Series: The White Rabbit Chronicles #1 Author: Gena Showalter Format: Hardback, 404 pages Rating: 4.75 stars Team Cole or Justin: Cole Time to Read: 2 days! Recommend to: anyone who loves a good zombie book :]
Goodread's Bio: Had
anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between
one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to
tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One
heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and
loved was gone.
Her father was right. The monsters are real….
avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she
must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole
has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might
just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….
First, i knew going into this that this is NOT a retelling of Alice in
Wonderland plus zombies!!! i read a lot of negative reviews where they
mainly gave it 1/2 stars because they were misled. all i had to do was
read the inside little bio and knew it wasn't anything related to Alice
Top 3 Main Characters for me: Alice:
The whole story is told from Alice's POV. I love Alice. She speaks to
me! She's sassy and has the best come backs. She's well written and i
connected with her quickly.
Cole: Hulky heartthrob! i had a
love/hate relationship with him the whole book. he's the leader of the
zombie hunting group. everyone in school is afraid of him, every girl
wants in his pants. yuck. i dislike characters written like that so i
had a hard time liking him. But towards the end, he really opened up and
i grew to like him.
Kat: i love Kat!!! i need her as my best
friend in real like. she suffers though some bad stuff but is always
looking on the bright side and is always there for Alice!
Alice's dad is crazy, claiming he sees monsters everywhere and doesn't
let his family out after the sun goes down. On Alice's birthday, her
sister Emma has a dance recital and Alice convinces her dad to let them
go out after dark to see it. (view spoiler)
to see the same monsters her dad saw and she learns there are others
like her. She joins them and learns she's a pretty badbutt person
compared to them :]
Overall:this book is badbutt! i loved every minute of it! i'm greatly looking forward to reading the next in the series :]
Title: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Series: Mara Dyer #1
Author: Michelle Hodkin
Format: Hardback, 466 pages
Rating: 4.5 stars
Time to Read: 2 days
Recommend it?: Yes :] for anyone who loves a good mystery and creepy good read :]
Goodread's Bio: Mara Dyer believes life can't get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can. She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed. There is. She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love. She's wrong.
First i must confess i went into this not even reading what it was
about or having any kind of clue as to what it was about! crazy i know,
but everyone was going cray cray over this and i saw it on my update
feed at least once a week for the past 6 months, so i broke down and put
a hold on it and got it :] which was the best plan ever!
Mara goes though some crazy things right off the bat. She wakes up in
the hospital and finds out her "closest" friends have died in a
terrible accident. she has no memory of what happened thou. you spend a
good chunk of the book trying to figure that stuff out with her!
Mara has PTSD, so though out the book you get to see how that affects
someone. i've never dealt with nor read anything involving PTSD so idk
if how she acts is 100% true, but if it is, i feel crazy sad for anyone
with this! She has crazy visions and hears things. She's being haunt by
her dead friends.
And if you think that's all poor Mara has to deal with, think again! i
won't post any kind of spoilers, but crazy things happen and even
crazier things keep happening!
Mara is written very well. i love her. she's equal parts strong and
sassy, i loved reading about her. Supporting characters of Daniel and
Joesph, Mara's brothers, and her mom and dad are also written well and
they have her back. Her mom is the supportive pillar in her life. Her
dad is a lawyer who takes up a murder case and is getting threats!
Daniel is playing the part of Big Brother amazing. Joesph is the
weirdest awesomest little kid ever!
Love interest Noah!! Lets just say i would leave my real boyfriend for this fictional man!
The last few pages were crazy and i reread the court room scene a bunch of times!
The ending was the best twist i could've thought of and i legit was
driven a little mad trying to think how it could go in the next book!
Overall i'm very pleased with the book and i am very much looking forward to the next in the series.

former best friends (that is, before Gemma ruined her life). But people
don't hold grudges forever. Do they?
Gemma intends on making

years ago—including Hallie and her dreamy brother, Josh—to believe
she's someone else. As though the summer wasn't complicated enough
aw revenge, a girls dream come true. I liked this book very much. I’ve
had my fair share of moments where I wished I could ruin anothers life.
Gemma is just more brave than I because I never could go though with it.
ruins her “best friends” life in order to save her family, but of
course it goes wrong, hey when doesn’t it. She then gets a second chance
later in life to fix what she messed up. She does try her hardest too
I just loved Gemma she is a clumsy, totally relatable
character. I cringed along with her as various things decided to not go
her way throughout the story.
The last few pages had me thou! I
didn’t see that coming at all, and I must say I am not looking forward
to waiting for the next one! Be here nowwww!!!!

plot behind this was very interesting. I'm not sure how i would do

The main character, Mitchell, was a relateable character. I was confused on how old he was throughout the book.
Supporting characters, Darren and Cori, were well written and i was hoping for some romance between Mitch and Cori!
There was some spelling and grammar errors, but nothing too major.
Overall a very good book, i was really wanting it to be way longer thou. it has a very promising story :]
