Follow Friday! (11/30/12)


First you leave your name on their post, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments. You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Q: Activity! Who is your to-die-for book crush? What do you think they look like? Add an image to make us all happy.


A:You guys, I read this question, and I kid you not, I got a little giddy lol I can't wait to go around and drool look at everyone's answers. 
Anyways, I figured since I loved them so much, I should give you a reason why. So I gave my answer as well as some quotes from them. 
Enjoy but remember.... THEY'RE MINE! lol 

 My #1 to-die-for book crush would HAVE to be Aiden St. Delphi from Jennifer Armentrout's The Covenant series. I imagine he would look something like this... 

(Ben Scott. Photo courtesy of Google)

"Ever since I've met you, I've wanted to break every rule.” Aiden turned away, the muscles in his neck tensing. He sighed. “You’ll become the center of someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a bitch on this earth.” 
― Jennifer L. ArmentroutPure

“Because I love you, we share each other’s problems. When we fight, we fight together. I’m going to be by your side no matter what, whether you like it or not. That’s what love is, Alex. You never have to face anything alone again. And I get what you’re saying. I don’t agree with it, but I will support you in any way I can.” 
― Jennifer L. ArmentroutDeity

And just because I looooove this question so much, a close second would be Noah Shaw from the Mara Dyer series
(Photo courtesy of Google)

“Mara, I have never felt about anyone the way I feel about you. And when you're ready for me to show you," he said, brushing my hair to the side, "I'm going to kiss you." His thumb grazed my ear and his hand curved around my neck. He leaned me backward and my eyes fluttered closed. I breathed in the scent of him as he leaned in and kissed the hollow under my ear. My pulse raced under his lips."And I won't settle for anything less.” 
― Michelle HodkinThe Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

“If I were to live a thousand years, I would belong to you for all of them. If we were to live a thousand lives, I would want to make you mine in each one.” 
― Michelle HodkinThe Evolution of Mara Dyer

Top Ten Tuesday: Most anticipated Reads of 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week we will post a new Top Ten list. Everyone is welcome to join.    

This week's topic is:
 Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For 2013
These are in no particular order.


1. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare: Even though I haven't read Clockwork Prince yet (I know what's wrong with me?!) I enjoyed the first one and I'm looking forward to this one.

2. Just One Day by Gayle Forman: I LOVED If I Stay and Where She Went! Forman just has magic with her books and I don't expect this one to be ANY different!

3. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins: Perkins just seems to get YA contemporary. And even more, she just gets how to do a really great companion novel. I'm really excited to see what she has in store for Isla and see what Anna, Etienne, Lola, and Cricket are up to now.

4. Apollyon by Jennifer L. Armentrout: I'd be lying if I said this wasn't one of my favorite series! I mean it features my favorite book boyfriend ever (AHHH AIDEN!) and of course the cover is gorgeous! I can't wait to see how the gods will factor into this one!

5. The Archived by Victoria Schwab: "Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books." Nuff said. I didn't need to read further than this to say YES I wanted to read this book. 

6. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer: Let's be honest. If you saw my Waiting on Wednesday for it (See it here), you can see how bad I want it. FYI: I would still gladly give a limb for it if you would like to let me borrow. :) I need to know what happened to Cinder! Plus, I've heard alottttt about Wolf and I need to meet him for myself! 


7. The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett: The premise sounds so amazing! And I mean come on, I love that its unique. I feel as if this will be a nice escape from all the regular-ness that is going on in the YA world. 

8. My Life After Now by Jessica Verdi: If you follow my blog, you should know that I am a HUGE fan of contemporaries where there is a big situation and this one is the cream of the crop. To make it even better, the situation that she's in hasn't been visited by YA yet and I'm interested in finding out how she does it. 

9. The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan: Another paranormal YA that is going to be unique to the scene. I mean gargoyles?! This has no choice but to be epic! 


10. Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger: I've heard so many great things about this! And if you know me, you know how much I LOVE mythology! This features a litle of everything that I love, romance, mythology, and a gorgeous cover. 

Runner ups! (Because I could NEVER only pick 10 for a topic like this!) 


1. Things I Can't Forget by Miranda Kenneally: Catching Jordan was so good, and Stealing Parker was even better! I love the lessons that she throws into each of her stories and I can't wait to see what lesson she has in store for us in this one.


2. Pivot Point by Kasie West: I love the concept of this! I would love to know what the outcome of my choices were before I chose!


3. Divergent #3 by Veronica Roth: I LOVED the ending of Insurgent and I cannot wait to see what goes on now. 

4. Splintered by A.G. Howard: We all know how I feel about fairy-tale retellings. And this one takes the cake. I've heard nothing but good things about it and even more, the cover is GORGEOUS!

5. Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook: Ummm It says Bonnie and Clyde meets If I Stay..... And that's all I read. I knew I had to read it then. 

6. The Rules for Disappearing by Ashley Elston: Witness Protection?! Yes please! And you've been doing six different people?! Man this book sounds so good. 

7.  Chantress by Amy Butler Greenfield: This cover is beyond gorgeous and the magical synopsis sound so promosing! I can't wait for this one!

The Tell-Tale Start by Gordon McAlpine

ARC, 177 pages
Release Date: January 10, 2013
Published by: Viking (Penguin)
Illustrated by: Sam Zuppardi
Series? The Misadventures of Edgar & Allan Poe #1
Source: Publisher
For fans of: Action, Adventure, Mystery, Paranormal, Laughing Out Loud, and Paranormal 

Meet Edgar and Allan Poe -- twelve-year-old identical twins, the great-great-great-great-grandnephews of Edgar Allan Poe. They look and act so much alike that they're almost one mischievous, prank-playing boy in two bodies. When their beloved black cat, Roderick Usher, is kidnapped and transported to the Midwest, Edgar and Allan convince their guardians that it's time for a road trip. Along the way, mayhem and mystery ensue, as well as deeper questions: What is the boys' telepathic connection? Is Edgar Allan Poe himself reaching out to them from the Great Beyond? And why has a mad scientist been spying on the Poe family for years? With a mix of literary humor, mystery, a little quantum physics, and fun extras like fortune cookie messages, letters in code, license plate clues -- and playful illustrations thoughout -- this series opener is a perfect choice for smart, funny tweens who love the Time Warp Trio, Roald Dahl, and Lemony Snicket. (From Shelfari)

*MY THOUGHTS*
     The Tell-tale Start is a typical middle grade novel. It was funny and was quite an adventure. The twins will sweep you off to their world from the beginning and leave you reeling!
     From the first page I was hoked. The adventure they went on started from the very beginning and I was never left bored with them. The plot moved quickly, which made for an awesome story. 
     I also loved the characters. They were all so fun and the twins were so clever. I connected to them all and loved everything they brought to the story.
     What I liked most about this book, was how the author used the poets and showed their "afterlife" as being effective to the events in present time. It was a very interesting concept that hadn't been done before and that freshness alone made it even more enjoyable. 
     This fun series will take you on a quirky trip until the very last page. I will be sure to pass this on to the teacher of the class I am student teaching. 
Overall, I give this

Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally

E-Book, 262 pages
Release Date: October 1, 2012
Published by: Sourcebooks Fire
Series? Companion Novel Hundred Oaks #2
Source: Own
For fans of: Contemporary, Romance, Hot Literary Guys, Realistic Fiction, Tear Jerkers

Red-hot author Miranda Kenneally hits one out of the park in this return to Catching Jordan's Hundred Oaks High.

After a scandal rocks their conservative small town, 17-year-old Parker Shelton goes overboard trying to prove that she won't turn out like her mother: a lesbian. The all-star third-baseman quits the softball team, drops 20 pounds and starts making out with guys--a lot. But hitting on the hot new assistant baseball coach might be taking it a step too far...especially when he starts flirting back.

*MY THOUGHTS*
     Miranda Kenneally is one of those authors you can grow comfortable with. Meaning you can hear she's coming out with a new title and automatically pre-order it without even having to read the synopsis. Her words in this title have proven my point. Stealing Parker is an amazing read and it will leave you breathless. 
     After Parker's mom announces that she's a lesbian and leaves her family to join her girlfriend, rumors begin to fly. And what's worse, they stem from her former best friend. From there, everything begins to spiral out of control and Parker decides to leave the softball team and make out with guy after guy. All to prove that she's nothing like her mother. She then decides to manage the baseball team thanks to her best friend for life, Drew. From there she meets the baseball coach intern Brian. And from there, her life falls out control.
     One of my favorite things about Kenneally's books is that in each one she teaches life lessons. In this one, she tackles one of the biggest issues in teen society right now, homosexuality. A lot of times, people that are homosexual find it hard to come out and find it harder to find friends to stick with them. They become embarrassed about what they like. Kenneally portrays this situation with expertise. She shows that it is ok to be however you want and do whatever you want. She shows that "sometimes you have to do what's best for you." Another lesson that can be taught from this book is hypocrisy. But I won't go in detail for fear of spoilers. Just know that the lesson is there.
     I also loved the characters  Parker is strong willed, believes in her Christian values, and is a very good friend. She just made some mistakes along the way. Also, all the guys that she befriended are all characters. (No pun intended lol) They provided the comic relief and I was grateful through all the drama with her family and her church. And I loved that it was a companion novel that features Jordan and Sam. It's so interesting to me when an author can provide us with another story and feature them in it without it being a whole story about them.
     As far as the romance, I was very happy with it. I must admit tho, Kenneally kind of scared me towards the end. I was so close to the end and the issue hadn't be resolved yet so I got nervous lol I'm ashamed to say I cried for a little bit when everything was finally fixed. I had just connected with Parker so much and I was happy things begin to fall in place for her. 
     Stealing Parker is a quick read, but its content makes up for the lack of pages. Things move very fast and you'll find yourself swept to the dug out, chewing gum, and listening to the crack of the baseball connecting with a bat. 
Overall, I give this

Follow Friday!

I know everyone is waiting in line for something somewhere, but as you go out and get all the Black Friday deals, remember to be safe, but stay strong for those awesome amazing deals!

Q: Are you thankful for a fellow blogger? Tell us about him or her.

A: I have a couple of them that I'm thankful for.... So, let's get started: 

     First off, I want to say I'm thankful for Jen over at Jenuine Cupcakes. She is the one blogger that I can count on to send me a book to borrow and she stays in a completely different part of the country than me. I love her to death for every book she's ever sent me. (Especially Deity!)
 
     Second, I'm thankful for Sara over at Forever 17 Books. We were both smaller blogs at the same time, but she grew a lot faster than I did. But yet, she didn't leave me behind. I can always count on her to come by my blog and comment, even on trivial things.
Next I'm thankful for Jen from the ARCycling program. So many ARC's that as a small blog such as myself, I never would have gotten the chance to read. But because of her great amazing program, I was able to read and review them just as other blogs do. Her program rocks you guys! 

So, those are the bloggers that I'm thankful for!
Who are you thankful for? 

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Thanksgiving America!


As this day is all about giving thanks, I would just like to say thank you to all my followers who take the time out to read my blog. I'm also thankful for all the blogs that I follow that have inspired me to keep going although my blog isn't as big as others. Thank you for all your help! I'm also thankful for all the authors, publishers, libraries, stores and all for providing me with content so that I am able to run my blog! 

So, with that being said, enjoy your families, eat, drink, and be merry!!!!


Elixir by Jennifer L. Armentrout

E-Book, 75 pages
Expected Release Date: November 27, 2012
Published by: Spencer Hill Press
Series: The Covenant 3.5
Source: Own
For fans of: Mythology, Novellas, Hot Literary Guys, YA

Aiden's novella

Aiden St. Delphi will do anything to save Alex.
Even if it means doing the one thing he will never forgive himself for.
Even if it means making war against the gods.


*MY THOUGHTS* (Warning: If you have not read Deity, you will not understand this novella!)

     Where to start?! Of course I LOVED it because everyone knows I LOVE Aiden. But this novella from his POV was very hard to read. It was gut wrenching and I felt so bad for him. He was very emotional and I wanted to crawl in the book and comfort him myself. It was a nice change to be in his mind and see the love he has for Alex. He is no doubt the most wonderful, sweetest book boyfriend ever.
     I also felt bad for Alex. Although she was being a certified crazy person, none of it was her fault. I don't believe that anything she did was her for a minute. Then when she had that "breakthrough," I really felt bad because I even knew it wouldn't last. Watching as she goes through this is like slamming my finger in the door time after time after time. It hurts. She was so strong and him taking her over like this makes her seem like a weakend, broken shell and I HATED it.
     But overall, this was a great installment to the Covenant series. A war is brewing and Aiden seems to be the only one not reacting to the fear of the Apolloyons. He seems to see what everyone else does not, all for Alex's sake.
Overall, I give this

Waiting on Wednesday: 11/21/12

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. 

This week I'm using a book that Ginger over at GReads! brought to my attention. It's a contemporary that tackles a HUGE issue so its right up my alley. I can't wait to see what its all about. 



WHAT NOW?
Lucy just had the worst week ever. Seriously, mega bad. And suddenly, it’s all too much—she wants out. Out of her house, out of her head, out of her life. She wants to be a whole new Lucy. So she does something the old Lucy would never dream of.
And now her life will never be the same. Now, how will she be able to have a boyfriend? What will she tell her friends? How will she face her family? Now, every moment is a precious gift. She never thought being positive could be so negative. But now, everything’s different…because now she’s living with HIV.

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I'm Thankful For


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week we will post a new Top Ten list. Everyone is welcome to join.    

This week's topic is:
Top 10 Authors I'm Thankful For
These are in no particular order.


1. J.K. Rowling: She created a HUGE part of my childhood with Harry Potter. I will FOREVER cherish this series and her. 

2. R.L. Stine: Guys, he's the reason I grew up to like all the heart pounding scary things that I do. he introduced me to to the paranormal when I didn't even know. 

Ann M. Martin

3. Ann M. Martin: As you all know, I'm only attending school here in Huntsville. I'm originally from Galveston, Texas. Well my home lost its entire first floor where my ENTIRE collection of the Babysitter's Club books were. You guys, I cried for days. Even though by then I was already a sophomore in college. It's just that those books were what introduced me to chapter books. I will always hold them near and dear to my heart.

4. Simone Elkeles: At first, I wouldn't read anything without some kind of paranormal element, but my Blogger friends convinced me to try YA contemporary. I remember giving Perfect Chemistry a try and from then on, a love for contemporary romance was born


5. Stephenie Meyer: You introduced me to paranormal romance as well as YA. I took a minute to read your books, but when I did I found a whole new genre and I fell in LOVE. 

6. Edgar Allan Poe: Two words- Tell-tale heart. <3 After reading that I fell in love with your writing and read everything of yours that I could. You introduced me to all adult things dark and dreary. 

7. The Brothers Grimm: Dude, you all know who these guys are. They had a huge influence on literature and I want to thank them for all their stories and the morals that I learned from them. 

8. Harper Lee: Thank you for writing like my favorite book EVER. It truly was an epic story and it deserves to be considered a classic. 


9. Suzanne Collins: Thanks for getting people, even those that hate reading, excited for your books and reading in general. If you can get my boyfriend (who only likes games and movies) to read them with me, I'm convinced you can do ANYTHING. 

10. Dr.Seuss: Thank you for writing the first book I ever read by myself! (Which was One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish) Thank you for opening up all those windows for me and making me WANT to read, even all those years ago. 

So, which authors are you thankful for?

Breaking Dawn Pt. II (the movie)


So I went to see the movie Saturday and although I was excited about it, it was bittersweet. The ending of a series that holds so many memories for me. Although I started the series a little late, I read all the books numerous times and was at every movie within the first 48 hours of its release. But, in all honesty, I can't say that I loved this book. Breaking Dawn was my least favorite, but this Pt. 2 movie was sooooo good guys! 


The director did a wonderful job of  portraying Bella as a vampire. She was breathtaking. And that scene of her hunting... She was amazing. I was really surprised by how good it was because I felt like it didn't need to be two movies. It seemed as if nothing was happening. (Aside from Renesmee growing that is.) But they added some extra padding to some of the scenes so that there was a little more for the audience to look forward to. 


One thing I loved about the movie was Renesmee. She was a great choice and one of the only characters in this movie saga that matched the picture in my head from the books. I was plesantly surprised with the actress because although she didn't say much, she played her part well. 


But just as everyone else, I was definitely on the edge of my seat when the twist came up. I was like "HOLY SHIT BALLS!" I cannot explain to you how I wanted to yell at the screen and say "What is this?" Finally, after it was over, the entire theater gave that exhale and I was convinced then that it was an amazing movie. A perfect way to end the saga! Now, fast forward to the end, the credits were so pretty! It was really like the perfect ending. I really enjoyed it. 

Did you see it?
What were your thoughts?

Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brenan

E-Book, 384 pages
Release Date: September 11, 2012
Published by: Random House Books for Young Readers 
The Lynburn Legacy #1
For fans of: Laughing Out Loud, Paranormal, Fantasy, Ya

Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.
But all that changes when the Lynburns return.
The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?

*MY THOUGHTS*
     This was definitely a fun read. As someone who studied journalism, I could understand Kami and her need to know everything. I connected with her right away. Even if I did think she was a llittle crazy in the beginning. 
     When we first meet Kami Glass she has just sstarted the school newspaper with her best friend. She tells her other friend all about it, but he just so happens to be in her mind. Yes you read right, in her mind. Kami has an imaginary friend named Jared who she has been teased and lost friends over since she was a little girl. Then one day she meets a boy named Ash Lynbourn. The Lynbourns are an old family that left town a long time ago, but have mysteriously come back for some unknown reason. Ash wants to join the newspaper and Kami wants an interview about them, so she allows him to join. Everything is going fine,  until  his cousin comes along. His cousin is nothing like him and gets into a fight with the Cricket team. Kami goes to interview him for the paper after the fight and low and behold , his name is Jared. She believes its a huge coincidence... Until they're in the same place at the same time and their thoughts finally collide..... 
     Man the premise of this book was AH-MAZEING! When I saw "And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy..." I knew I had to read this. It seems so dramatic and wonderful that I had to know what happens. But it was a lot different from what I was expecting. It turned out that this was more funny than the synopsis made it seem. I remember thinking "Is this a parody?" because I was laughing so hard. Kami is really a weird character and I loved that I was able to connect with her. Another thing that I loved about her, was the fact that she was Asian. Yay for diversity! Not every character in every YA book has to be the same race. 
     One thing I do wish was different was the setting. I wish it was described more. I was pulled to Kami's world, but not completely as I could not see anything of the setting. All I saw was what was going on. I've never been to England, so I was excited about actually seeing it from Kami's point of view. 
     Finally, I loved the big secret towards the end. Another thing that sets the book apart from other books that I've read. Jared and Kami haven't been all over each other and the situation that's going on isn't about Kami or Jared being a werewolf or vampire. It was a refreshing way to add something different to my paranormal fetish. 
Overall, I give this

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.
 
Q: Books are turned into movies all the time. Turn it around! What movie would make a good book?

A: Ok, I'm not a huge of movies so this is a tough one. And on top of that, the 98% of the movies out now a days are ALREADY based on books. Sooooo with that being said, I guess I'll go with Step Up (the original) and Save the Last Dance. 

Step UpSave the Last Dance

I say these because I feel like they would make great YA contemporary stories!

Waiting on Wednesday: 11/14/12

This bookish meme tells about those books that we are waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for. It is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

For some reason I've been really into romance. I'm thinking its because all that paranormal-ness I was reading in October. So, I guess I'll go with a contemporary this week.... So, without further ado, this week I'm waiting on: 

Just One Day (Just One Day, #1)

Just One Day by Gayle Forman
Release Date: January 8, 2013

A breathtaking journey toward self-discovery and true love, from the author of If I Stay
When sheltered American good girl Allyson "LuLu" Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.

Just One Day is the first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. Willem’s story—Just One Year—is coming soon!

I read and LOVED If I Stay! I KNOW that this book will not disappoint! I cannot wait to read this one!
