Wishlist Wednesday (11)

Hi! Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper. This weekly meme features a book from your wishlist that you are dying to add to your shelves. This week that book is

Nameless (Tales of Beauty & Madness, #1)

Nameless: A Tale of Beauty and Madness
by Lili St. Crow

Book blurb from Goodreads:

When Camille was six years old, she was discovered alone in the snow by Enrico Vultusino, godfather of the Seven—the powerful Families that rule magic-ridden New Haven. Papa Vultusino adopted the mute, scarred child, naming her after his dead wife and raising her in luxury on Haven Hill alongside his own son, Nico.

Now Cami is turning sixteen. She’s no longer mute, though she keeps her faded scars hidden under her school uniform, and though she opens up only to her two best friends, Ruby and Ellie, and to Nico, who has become more than a brother to her. But even though Cami is a pampered Vultusino heiress, she knows that she is not really Family. Unlike them, she is a mortal with a past that lies buried in trauma. And it’s not until she meets the mysterious Tor, who reveals scars of his own, that Cami begins to uncover the secrets of her birth…to find out where she comes from and why her past is threatening her now.

What drew me to this book was the cover, it is stunning. When I read the synopsis I knew that I had to add this one to my shelves - a retelling of Snow White?! Yes Please.

Top Ten Tuesday (9)

Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week's list was a freebie in which we could make up any list we wanted. I chose to do

Top Ten Books I Want to Re-Read


  1. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I LOVE these books and I haven't read them in a very long time - not since I was a young teen. I would really like to go back and read through the series again - book after book now that the series is complete.
  2. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. Oh this book was amazing! I just recently got the second one and I would love to re-read this one before reading the second one. This book has got to be one of my all-time favorites. A unique story told with such beautiful, eloquent writing that I want to read again!
  3. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. This book was so mind-blowing that I want to go back and re-read it. I think that every time you re-read a book or re-watch a movie, you pick up on more things you didn't see the first time and this is one book that I would love to find out more.
  4. Just One Day by Gayle Foreman. Oh, how I loved this book! I cannot stop thinking about it and I want to experience the greatness all over again. 
  5. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This book was beautiful in many ways and made me feel every bit of emotion that exists. Such a beautiful story that is beautifully told that I would love to read again.
  6. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I read this one in high school and I remember really enjoying it. I would love to read this one again and see what I think of it today. 
  7. The Nightshade Series by Andrea Cremer. These books were awesome and had me wanting to jump right into the next one after I finished one. I really enjoyed reading these and would love to read them again.
  8. The Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer. I have a special place in my heart for the Twilight series. They introduced me to YA and I loved them as each one came out - I would love to read the series straight through now that it is complete.
  9. The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. This is one of my favorite trilogies. The story is amazing and I fell in love with all of the characters. This is a trilogy I want to read again and again.
  10. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. This book is middle grade and so cleverly written. It is filled with imagination and wit and is a joy to read. I would love to experience that joy again.

Book Review: The 5th Wave


Title: The 5th Wave
Author: Rick Yancey
Publication: May 7th, 2013
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile

Rating: 5 out 5 stars


Synopsis: 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.



Review: Let me just start by saying Wow! This book was so good! All I've heard about this book are rants and raves...well let me tell you why I am ranting and raving about this book. I haven't read much science fiction but this book has got me wanting to read more. The world in this book is unlike any world I've ever read before. We are there with Cassie as she goes through each wave that arrives and kills those around her. Yancey does a fantastic job of keeping you on edge with Cassie as she strives to figure out just what exactly is going on and what the 5th wave will bring. 
There are multiple perspectives given throughout the book of the characters and how they weave around each other and interconnect is just brilliant. I loved all the characters and found myself rooting for each and every one of them. The romance was like a candle in a pitch black room - a light that steadily grew brighter with each page. 
The action in this book is never ending with plot twists galore. This book will keep you up at night wanting to know what happens next and will keep you up after reading it, wondering what will happen next. Just when you think you've got something figured out, something happens that makes you rethink yourself. When I was about a third of the way in, I was so confused that I was getting frustrated with the book but I pushed through and it didn't take long to figure out what was going on. This book will keep your nose between the pages and your brain quickly thinking up what will happen next. I highly recommend this one!

Wishlist Wednesday (10)

Hi! Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper. Wishlist Wednesday is where you feature a book on your wishlist that you are dying to add to your shelves. This week my pick is

 
The Raft by S.A. Bodeen

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Robie is an experienced traveler. She’s taken the flight from Honolulu to the Midway Atoll, a group of Pacific islands where her parents live, many times. When she has to get to Midway in a hurry after a visit with her aunt in Hawaii, she gets on the next cargo flight at the last minute. She knows the pilot, but on this flight, there’s a new co-pilot named Max. All systems are go until a storm hits during the flight. The only passenger, Robie doesn’t panic until the engine suddenly cuts out and Max shouts at her to put on a life jacket. They are over miles of Pacific Ocean. She sees Max struggle with a raft. 

And then . . . she’s in the water. Fighting for her life. Max pulls her onto the raft, and that’s when the real terror begins. They have no water. Their only food is a bag of Skittles. There are sharks. There is an island. But there’s no sign of help on the way.

I love reading survival stories and this looks especially intriguing. It looks promising with suspense and adventure! Looks like it could be a great book to read on the beach this summer to help add to the story.

I loved it!! I loved having an excuse to read, I loved talking with other book lovers in the twitter chats and I loved just knowing that I wasn't the only one reading or trying to read more. I cannot wait to participate in the next bout of books readathon.

Runes Blog Tour and Giveaway!






Title: Runes
Author: Ednah Walters
Publication: May 20th, 2013
Publisher: Firetrail Publishing

Rating: 4 out 5


Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.

Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.



Review: My first thoughts on this book is that it was a breath of fresh air. It had a great mixture of paranormal that you don't see all to often in books. I wish I could go into more detail but I don't want to give too much away. I found myself much more involved with the characters than I thought I would be. Though I did find myself frustrated with Raine, the MC, I still liked her overall. I thought that the development between Raine and Torin could have been more developed - I felt that it went from 0 to 60 once one of them realized their feelings. However, Walters did a fantastic job of making me think about Torin as a potential new book boyfriend.

I loved the unique story of the Runes and the magic that goes with them. I wanted to find out more about the Runes and about how they are used and what those that use them are called. While the bulk of the information isn't told until the end, there is enough throughout the book that kept me interested and wanting to find out more. 

I felt that there were small bits of the story missing towards the end. I felt like things started to happen and there was no explanation of how it happened. This is hard to explain without giving anything away, but this is an essential part of the book that I felt deserved to be told thoroughly. When I finished the book I felt like I wanted to read the next one right away. This book hooked me in and I cannot wait for the next one to come out. Overall this was a great read and I would recommend this one.

Wishlist Wednesday (9)

Hi! Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper in which you pick one book off your wishlist that you would love to add to your shelves.This week I would love to add:


This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith

Book Blurb:
If fate sent you an email, would you answer?

When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O'Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds. 

Then Graham finds out that Ellie's Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in-person. But can a star as famous as Graham really start a relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie want to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs? 

I read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith last year and I loved it - it's one of my favorites. I've been wanting to read another one of her books since then and I was so excited when this one came out. The premise sounds really good and I love the modern aspect of it with the two MCs meet online before meeting face-to-face. Since summer is coming up, I've been craving light and fun reads and this one seems like it will fit into that category perfectly. I cannot wait to get this one and read it!

Hi! Day 2 (Tuesday) didn't go as well as Day 1 (Monday). I was busier yesterday than I was on the first day so that explains it. I hope to catch up either today or tomorrow.

Book Review: Money Run by Jack Heath

Title: Money Run
Author: Jack Heath
Publication: April 1st, 2013
Publisher: Scholastic

Rating: 4 out 5


Synopsis: Take two child geniuses (thieves in their spare time), one obsessed assassin, and the richest man in the world to create a compelling, completely unpredictable young adult thriller. Fifteen-year-olds Ashley and Benjamin have concocted a daring master plan: to steal billionaire Hammond Buckland's most precious belonging, hidden in the depths of his conspicuous corporate building. But Hammond Buckland has a most elaborate plan of his own - and none of them have counted on Peachey, the hit man with a determination to finish the job - at any cost!


Review: This book is unique from many YA books that I have read and I enjoyed that about it. This book starts off with action and the action doesn't stop throughout the whole book. We follow Ashley as she tries to do the ultimate heist by stealing a billion-dollar item from a billionaire. While doing this she finds herself too involved in a plan that she didn't know existed.

This book, as said in the description is a thriller. It keeps you on edge page after page. Heath wrote this book wonderfully with the action pacing perfectly along with the twists and turns that occur along the way, there were parts where my mouth would drop open, like WTH just happened?! There was no romance in this book which was unique to me after most books I read contain some type of romance in them and I enjoyed reading a book where it was straight to business.
Ashley was such a unique MC with a strong will and smart brain despite her age. I was in the mood for something different than what I usually read and this book satisfied that need. I would definitely put this book in the older YA category as there were graphic parts that I couldn't imagine a younger child reading. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick, thrilling, adventurous read.

Wishlist Wednesday (8)

Hi! Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper. This meme features a book that you have on your wishlist that you are wanting to add to your shelves asap.  This week my WW is:


Invisibility by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan

Book blurb from Goodreads:

Stephen has been invisible for practically his whole life — because of a curse his grandfather, a powerful cursecaster, bestowed on Stephen’s mother before Stephen was born. So when Elizabeth moves to Stephen’s NYC apartment building from Minnesota, no one is more surprised than he is that she can see him. A budding romance ensues, and when Stephen confides in Elizabeth about his predicament, the two of them decide to dive headfirst into the secret world of cursecasters and spellseekers to figure out a way to break the curse. But things don’t go as planned, especially when Stephen’s grandfather arrives in town, taking his anger out on everyone he sees. In the end, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how big of a sacrifice they’re willing to make for Stephen to become visible — because the answer could mean the difference between life and death. At least for Elizabeth.

I was so excited for this book after I heard who wrote it. Andrea Cremer and David Levithan are two of my favorite authors. The premise of this book is so intriguing and unique, I mean an invisible guy because of a curse-what?! I can't wait to read this one!

Top Ten Tuesday (7)

Hi! I am here with another Top Ten Tuesday. This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten Tuesday (in no particular order) is:

Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light and Fun:

  1. Just One Day by Gayle Foreman. I just read this book last month and it was so good. While I don't know if I would say that it was all light, it was really fun to read. All the traveling and spontaneous adventures in this book are light and fun to read. 

   2. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith. I love this book! When I read this one, I was in the mood for something fun with a great story and this matched up perfectly. It was so good that I've been wanting to re-read it and experience it all over again.










3. The Lightning Thief by Percy Jackson. This book is so fun to read that you don't want it to end, luckily it continues in a series. I strongly recommend this                                             series to anyone and everyone.

   4. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. This is more of a children's/middle grade book but it is such a fun read that I had to put it on this list. Being the story of a boy and his travels, this book is full of witty and clever thoughts and the story is brilliant.

   5. Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. Of course, Sophie Kinsella had to make this list. Most of her books are the perfect beach reads and this one is no exception. This story is about a girl who is haunted (or rather challenged and entertained) by a ghost of her family. Their relationship is playful and full of shenanigans that will have you laughing. This book will leave you with a smile.

   6. Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella. Okay, okay I couldn't resist putting another Sophie Kinsella novel on this list. This is my other favorite of hers. Our main character Emma spills many of her secrets to a stranger on a plane who she later finds out is her new boss. This book is perfect for something light and fun.

  7. Seattle Girl by Lucy Kevin. I went to Seattle two summers ago and I loved it. So when I saw this book I had to read it and I loved this book as well. This book follows a girl that is a radio dj in Seattle. This book was a great summer read.

   8. This is my first Nora Roberts book and I wasn't disappointed. I thought that this book was so fun to read. The love story in this book was cute and I loved the dynamic of the characters in this book. Being this is the first of a set of four, I really want to read the others this summer as they would be perfect to read on a sunny day lying outside.

   9. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris. This is book one of the Sookie Stackhouse series. All of these books are really fun to read. Sookie is fun to follow through her many travels and these books never failed to brighten my day.

 10. Love Letters by Katie Fforde. This book is about a girl organizing a literary festival and trying to convince a certain author to join in the festivities. This book takes place over in Ireland and has some fun elements that are book-related.

Wishlist Wednesday (7)

Hi! Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper. You find a book on your wishlist that you are dying to get on your shelves and you share that book in a post. This week my book is:

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting

Book Blurb from Goodreads:

In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she's spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed.

Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can't be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country's only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime.
I am intrigued by the idea that classes are divided by different languages. I think it also sounds interesting that the MC, Charlaina, can speak all the languages. This book is promising to be unique and I can't wait to get my hands on it!
