Surprise Post

So I was looking at something and I decided to do this blog. And I want your honest feed back!

I was wondering who your Favorite characters are in what books? What person do you wish was real or you would want to date if they were real?

Me personally I love Jacob from Twilight, Derek from The summoning, Goth boy from Strange Angels, and Shay from Nightshade!

Notice a trend?
They are all....Werewolves of sorts! Odd right? I just noticed that yesterday as I was thinking about it!

So who are yours?

Summary:
Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything -- including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

Review: (Warning longest review I've ever written)
At 5AM I started this book I promised myself that after two chapters that I would go to sleep. The beginning was so intriguing and amazing that it was difficult to put the book down and not continue. I fell asleep quickly that night promising myself I would start right back on that book the second I woke up. And let me tell you that night did not go by fast enough. Then I started reading again and I got to the middle of the book. Now normally books tend to start to drag near the middle but the reason for the plus after the five is yet to come. The book kept pushing forward just getting better and better while it progressed. I wrote this review down but as I start to think about the book and the journey not only the characters took but also the one I toke reading it makes the words just flow so easily. So there is no need for me to look off the already written review because this is so much more. This book is so amazing that it can barley be described in words. I stayed up through the night to read this book I had school today but I did not sleep for instead I read. I read through class after class... Did I just rhyme? I can't rhyme so that's how awesome this book is it is on my favorites list next to 13 reasons why and Willow. And that is what earned this book a +. Thanks for reading this review and I hope you read and enjoy the book as much as I did.

Rating: 3 Stars

Summary:
The ultimate battle. The ultimate love.
For the past two years, Jenn has lived and trained at Spain’s Sacred Heart Academy Against the Cursed Ones. She is among the few who have pledged to defend humanity or die trying. But the vampires are gaining power, and the battle has only just begun.
Forced to return home after death takes a member of her family, Jenn discovers that San Francisco is now a vampire strong-hold. As a lone hunter apart from her team, Jenn is isolated—and at risk. She craves the company of her fighting partner, Antonio: his protection, his reassurance, his touch. But a relationship with Antonio comes with its own dangers, and the more they share of themselves, the more Jenn stands to lose.
Then Jenn is betrayed by one who was once bound to protect her, causing her to doubt all she had held as true. To survive, Jenn must find the courage to trust herself—and her heart.


Review:
I hate the beginning its very slow and its all fighting I think this books OK but i'm not being on reading action books i'm more for watching it. This book would be amazing as a movie but pretty bad as a book. The book is a supernatural of sorts it has werewolves and witches and you can't forget about the vampires. I don't like how it keeps switching POV's There are too many just stick to Antonio's and Jenn's next time. I tended to skip chapters when it got to a certain persons POV and I still knew what was going on. The middle got boring and was slow. I still believe that if the book was written differently I would have loved it the only good part about this book was the end. It was amazing one of my favorite endings EVER! I would love to read the next book but only if they keep to Jenn and Antonio's POV. Also not a big fan on what they did to heather at the end. Of course the end with Jenn and Antonio's was making me want to put the rating up higher but I tempted to stick to my guns.

Rating: 3 Stars

Summary: When her best guy friend falls victim to a vicious hate crime, sixteen-year-old Cat sets out to discover who in her small town did it. Richly atmospheric, this daring mystery mines the secrets of a tightly knit Southern community and examines the strength of will it takes to goagainst everyone you know in the name of justice.

Review:
I did not like this book what so ever. It's all about the main character turning her back on her friend who was gay and then He gets hurt and she goes back and remembers all the memories and wonders why she ever let him go and why she didn't stop him from hanging out with her brother and his friends who always picked on Patrick (the gay guy). The news paper articles in the beginning were strong but then after like two chapters I just couldn't continue reading. I'm sorry I love this author but I think she was out of her element or should have written in a different point of view. I will never rate a book lower 2 stars. I think I may have expected something different from her. I'm sorry Lauren I really wanted to like it but I couldn't.

The awakening


Author: Kelley Armstrong
Series: The Summoning
Publisher: Harper teen
Publication Date: 2009
Pages: 360
How Received: Borrowed
Rating: 5 Stars

Summary:Chloe Saunders is a living science experiment—not only can she see ghosts, but she was genetically altered by a sinister organization called the Edison Group. She's a teenage necromancer whose powers are out of control,which means she can raise the dead without even trying. Now Chloe's running for her life with three of her supernatural friends—a charming sorcerer, a cynical werewolf, and a disgruntled witch—and they have to find someone who can help them before the Edison Group catches them. Or die trying. . .

Review:
This book is exactly what you would expect cruel half demons messing with Chloe tons of running and living on the streets.. Opps you weren't suppose to know that... =] The book was just as good as the first one. Some books get worse when they continue in a series. But this book was amazing maybe almost better then the first@ I loved it! Only problem is I don't like how in the end it just cuts off and makes you so frizzled that you just have to read the next one then you have to wait about a year till it comes out. grr. But then it puts two chapters in the end of the book.No matter what I say about this book or series I can not do it any justice. The book is AMAZING! Must Read!

Linger


Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Series: Shiver
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Publication Date: July 2010
Pages: 360
How Received: Borrowed
Rating: 3 Stars

Summary:In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past... and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabel, who already lost her brother to the wolves... and is nonetheless drawn to Cole. At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love - the light and the dark, the warm and the cold - in a way you will never forget.

Review:
I was Afraid to start this book because I was afraid of being let down.. I shouldn't have tried it. This review is going to be beyond short. I didn't like the beginning of this book it didn't re introduce the characters I read this book what feels like almost a year ago because I've read so many books since then. And I had no Idea who the characters were anymore. The beginning made me not want to continue. Shiver was like a 4 out of 5. But linger is more of a 2 out of 5. The book is extremely Unappealing it should have been left at being just one book. Ick. The book was also written in to many POV's.

Hey guys

Publication Date: September 2010
Pages: 313
How Received: Borrowed
Genre: 1.Bakers - Fiction 2. Witches - Fiction 3. Bakeries - Fiction 4. Armageddon - Fiction
Rating: 5

Summary: Life in Marblehead has had a pleasant predictability, until Diesel arrives. Rumor has it that a collection of priceless ancient relics representing the Seven Deadly Sins have made their way to Boston’s North Shore. Partnered with pastry chef Lizzie Tucker, Diesel bullies and charms his way through historic Salem to track them down—and his criminal mastermind cousin Gerewulf Grimorie. The black-haired, black-hearted Wulf is on the hunt for the relic representing gluttony. Caught in a race against time, Diesel and Lizzie soon find out that more isn’t always better, as they battle Wulf and the first of the deadly sins.

Review:
I love love love this book. One of the best Janet Evanovich books I have EVER read and I have read them all. It is an adult novel but it is paranormal. I love how Wicked Appetite is like a spin off of a Stephine Plum novel(side novel). She brought in Diesel and Carl the monkey!(love it!) Of course you would kind of have to read plum spooky to understand who Carl and Diesel is. But the book is beyond worth it! It's amazing and hard to put down. As well as fast paced. I am in love with the story line. I can't wait to read the next book in the series! I could say SOOOOO mcuh more about this in a Vlog review. Do you think I should do a Vlog for this?

Rating: 5

Summary:
For her own protection sisteen year old Dru is taken to a secret training facility that feels more like a prison, but she faces great danger there and learns that a traitor who was involved in her mothers death now wants her dead.

Review:
I love this story! It aligns amazingly with the first book. Not all sequals are good enough to do that.Amazing storyline and as always amazing characters! I flew through this book without a hitch. It's very difficult to put down. Betrayals and the summoning saved me from the most Boring day of my entire life. I finished off the summining while at my mom's doctors office. Then started and finished Betrayals through my mom's lame planting seminar, as well as Lunch and Dinner. Strange angels is a must read series. Always keeps you guessing. Just when you think you have it all figured out everything changes. I highly recommend this book!

The summoning

Series: The summoning

Summary:
After 15 year old Chloe starts seeing ghosts and is sent to Lyle house, a mysterious group home for mentally disturbed teenagers, she soon discovers that neither Lyle house nor its inhabitants are exactly what they seem, and that she and her new friends are in danger.

Review:
The beginning is very fast paced after the flash back that starts the stroy and gives it a little history. Before you know it you are well into the book. It is an amazing read and it is difficult to put down. I recommend this series on the highest level possible. I can not wait for the next book to be in my hands so I can devour it. When Chloe gets to Lyle house it's so odd. But by the time she has been in lyle house for a week the real action starts to take place. I love the plot and the mix of normal people with the super humans. The summoning is one of those books you can't put down and when you get to the end you just need to have the next one by you so you can jump to the next book! If I hadn't said it enough this book is one of my all time favorites!!!!!

Review: The drawing didn't do the characters any justice. Of course this review isn't about the art. The story line was way simple it ended weird. Mostly because it has another one in the sequel. I believe Janet Evanovich should stick to novels they fit her writing style better.

Rating: 5 Stars

Summary:
Can love survive the zombie apocalypse? Maybe Dicey's first chance at a real relationship was dead from the start. She's the star of her high school baseball team, and Jack's the star of the science program. Her idea of a study session includes sleeping in the sun, and his idea of a good game involves dungeons and dice. But opposites start attracting when they're assigned to be partners in a class project. Now an outbreak of a weird infection—it eats your brains and leaves you hungry for more—might not mean just the end of their first date. It might mean the end of everything. Will their relationship fall apart faster than zombies in the Florida sun, or can Dicey and Jack beat the odds and find a happy ending?


Review:
The drawings are very detailed and yet cutesy. The beginning of the book was sort of confusing but it made up for it in humor! I loved this manga. I loved the fact that the hero was female and how entertaining it was. It was very sweet and tore at the hem of the social status. Also, the pelican post at the end was highly amusing! I can't wait till the next one. I highly recommend this to everyone.

Genre: 1.Family and everyday life - Fiction

Rating: 5 Stars

Summary: What happens when a girl, homeschooled by her counterculture mother, decides to spend her senior year in public school? First friendship, first love—and first encounters with the complexities of authority and responsibility.

This Books is beyond interesting from beginning to end. It amazed me through out the whole book. None stop action going on in this book. Normally in a book it has a slow start but not this one. This book touched me and those kind of books are the best kind because it feels like your there or for me its like watching a movie.I'm not sure I can do this book any justice. It is by far one of the top 3 books I've read this year, and I've read about 11 books in the last 10 days.I love the way JJ Johnson describes things. The characters are amazing and dynamic they are...ah no words for them. Evie is an amazing lead character as well. It is so hard not to tell all about this book. It makes a person think about things they may have never thought of before. It had a lot of drama and no one likes drama but this is the kind of book you just can't put down this story continued to amaze me. I love the flow and and how it puts thing in perspective. The end was... well you'll just have to read it for yourself. But since i'm listening to Taylor Swift i'll just say this; It's like a fairytale.

The Gift



Author: James Patterson
Series: Witch and Wizard
Publisher: Hachette Book Group
Publication Date: December 2010
How Received: Borrowed
Rating: 3 Stars

Summary: After escaping imprisonment by the totalitarian regime known as the new order, siblings Wisty and Whit Allgood, who possess magical powers, establish themselves as leaders of the resistance, a hidden community like themselves, hunted by the state and determined to defy its ban on the arts, magic, and all other forms of creativity.


In my honest opinion of this book I don't like that James Patterson changed the author he was working with on this series. When he worked with Gabrielle Charbonnet on the witch and wizard the book was amazing! I flew threw the book quickly because I just couldn't put it down! But now James Patterson worked with Ned Rust on The Gift Ned Rust also worked with James Patterson on Danile X: Watch the skies There was a huge change in writing not only did the stories not line up but they put in a 3rd point of view. It was better when they didn't include the one who is the one's opinion. That reminds me The one who is the one is a long and annoying name. I guess that adds a few pound of hatred to that man though because it really does work. The book in the beginning was slow and made little sense. I really hope for the rest of the series James Patterson considers working with Gabrielle Charbonnet again because they make a great team. The rest of the book was pretty good. Very fast paced, it had a lot going on. wisty and whit had little down time. The beginning and end were very depressing, yet inspiring. I cant't wait for the next book to see how they improve. I think I may have expected to much from the book which made it not match my exception. Wondering what the next book has in store.

Summary: After Fifteen-year old Liz Hall is hit by a taxi and killed, she finds herself in a place that is both like and unlike earth, where she must adjust to her new status and figure out how to "live."

The beginning was wonderful and strong. Some parts before chapter 12 we meet the character at her worst I guess you could say. I so wanted to hate he but as I continued she began to realize everything and The story began to blossom more beautifully then before. The book in all was pretty remarkable. Considering that I wasn't sure if I would be able to finish it. I actually recommend this book! The ideas just flowed it was a very touching story! I wouldn't have Gabrielle Zevin write this any other way.
