17565845Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do.

Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.

Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he’s sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he’s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.

For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.

Cole Randolph was just trying to have a fun time with his friends on Halloween (and maybe get to know Jenna Hunt a little better). But when a spooky haunted house turns out to be a portal to something much creepier, Cole finds himself on an adventure on a whole different level.

After Cole sees his friends whisked away to some mysterious place underneath the haunted house, he dives in after them and ends up in The Outskirts.

And once you come to the Outskirts, it's very hard to leave.

Delphi by Michael Scott
Release Date: March 9th

Delphi: A History of the Center of the Ancient WorldThe oracle and sanctuary of the Greek god Apollo at Delphi were known as the "omphalos"--the "center" or "navel"--of the ancient world for more than 1000 years. Individuals, city leaders, and kings came from all over the Mediterranean and beyond to consult Delphi's oracular priestess; to set up monuments to the gods in gold, ivory, bronze, marble, and stone; and to take part in athletic and musical competitions. This book provides the first comprehensive narrative history of this extraordinary sanctuary and city, from its founding to its modern rediscovery, to show more clearly than ever before why Delphi was one of the most important places in the ancient world for so long.

In this richly illustrated account, Michael Scott covers the whole history and nature of Delphi, from the literary and archaeological evidence surrounding the site, to its rise as a center of worship with a wide variety of religious practices, to the constant appeal of the oracle despite her cryptic prophecies. He describes how Delphi became a contested sacred site for Greeks and Romans and a storehouse for the treasures of rival city-states and foreign kings. He also examines the eventual decline of the site and how its meaning and importance have continued to be reshaped right up to the present. Finally, for the modern visitor to Delphi, he includes a brief guide that highlights key things to see and little-known treasures.

A unique window into the center of the ancient world, "Delphi" will appeal to general readers, tourists, students, and specialists.

Let the Storm Break
Release Date: March 4th

18051183Whirlwind romance and breathtaking action continues in the sequel to Let the Sky Fall, which Becca Fitzpatrick called “charged and romantic.” Vane Weston is haunted. By the searing pull of his bond to Audra. By the lies he’s told to cover for her disappearance. By the treacherous winds that slip into his mind, trying to trap him in his worst nightmares. And as his enemies grow stronger, Vane doesn’t know how much longer he can last on his own.

But Audra’s still running. From her past. From the Gales. Even from Vane, who she doesn’t believe she deserves. And the farther she flees, the more danger she finds. She possesses the secret power her enemy craves, and protecting it might be more than she can handle—especially when she discovers Raiden’s newest weapon.

With the Gale Force weakened by recent attacks, and the power of four collapsing, Vane and Audra are forced to make a choice: keep trusting the failing winds, or turn to the people who’ve betrayed them before. But even if they survive the storms sent to destroy them, will they have anything left to hold on to?

Better off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg

20622750Can a guy and a girl be just friends? In the story, which spans five years, two continents, one BBC sitcom, and countless questions about their friendship; Macallan and Levi are put to the ultimate test when a relationship-changing secret is revealed.

11500217Book Title: Angelfall
Author: Susan Ee
Number of Pages: 283
Rating: 3.5 stars
Genres: Young Adult, Romance, Fantasy
Books like it: Fallen by Lauren Kate
My favorite quote:
“What if they don’t let us go through?” I ask, trying not to move my lips.
“They will,” he answers from the dark recesses of the backseat footwell.
“How do you know?”
“Because you have the look they’re looking for.”
“What look is that?”
“Beautiful.” His voice is like a caress from the shadows.

Brief Synopsis from Goodreads:
It's been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back.

Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.

Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl.

Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels' stronghold in San Francisco where she'll risk everything to rescue her sister and he'll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.

My Summary:

Normally, I don’t jump on the bandwagon and go with the hype. Most of you are laughing at this, because I fell in love with Hunger Games, Divergent, and for most part, the Selection. I loved the Infernal Devices, especially. But, I did not jump on the bandwagon for Fallen, The Mortal Instruments, or The Fifth Wave. It really depends on the book. I hate getting my expectations up for a really popular book, and then it turns out to be horrible. This is why it took me such a long time to get around to reading Angelfall. Some of you might know that I didn’t really enjoy the Fallen series by Lauren Kate, and since Angelfall is kind of the same idea, I was afraid to give this series a chance.

I guess fate was begging me to read this book, because it was one of the only books in the Young Adult genre for the Kindle Lending Library.

So I clicked the check out button on the screen and started reading.

I was like: Hello, book.
And the book was like:

The characters of this book were very amazing. I felt their feelings. The tension, the hatred, the grief, the love- I felt it all. HOWEVER- the reason this book got 3.5 stars instead of 4.5 is because  Susan Ee was too much like Veronica Roth. She was super good at making the reader feel emotion and connect with the characters. The one thing she wasn’t good at? WORLD BUILDING. She never fully explained how the angels got to Earth, why they were here, or anything like that.
I hope she explains this all in the books to come.
Because otherwise I will not be a very happy camper.

My Synopsis:

This book is like is an apocalyptic, the world-is-ending type of thing. So you know, the typical genre for these times. Talk about jumping on the bandwagon. This book is sort of original, if you take Fallen out of the picture. Basically angels aren’t the sweet, peaceful things that you have on top of your Christmas tree. They’ve taken over Earth, and no one knows what they want. All anyone knows about angels is they are stronger, faster, and powerful than anything.

Penryn is a survivor of the angels’ wrath. She is on the run with her crazy, delusional mother, and her little sister.
Then one day, Penryn sees something that changes her life forever. While her family is on the run, they hear some angels talking and quickly hide. Penryn goes to investigate the noise, and what she sees is horrifying.
Two angels have overpowered another angel and are standing  over him while he cowers helplessly. She watches as they take the angel’s beautiful wings and cut them off.
That is when they turn around and see Penryn and her family. In a rush, she realizes that in that moment, she and the wingless angel are allies.
So she throws him a sword and hopes that he won’t point it  at her.
He doesn’t.  
He fights back at the angels.
In all of the commotion, Penryn’s little sister is picked up by one of the angels.  And the angel takes her away. Then, Penryn’s mom runs away and Penryn is left with the wingless angel, whose name is Raffe.
She decides to keep him captive, because he will know where the angels are. And where the angels are, her sister is bound to be too. In return, she will find a way for Raffe to get his wings back. The two of them form a temporary alliance.

What Penryn doesn’t expect is the feelings that come when she’s with him.

And moving on now….

Wow that synopsis was one of the worst that I have ever written. Sorry, I am really tired today. Basically this book is about a girl who is stuck with a wingless angel. They go on an adventure to rescue her little sister, and she falls in love with him.

Yeah, I should have just said that in the beginning.

About that romance thing….

It doesn’t feel like Penryn is really into the romance, at least, not to me. It kind of felt forced. I was rooting for Raffe to fall in love with her, and then HE DOES SOMETHING HORRIBLE!!! My heart broke for the poor girl. Here is basically what he said. It isn’t word for word, because I turned the book back in today and I don’t have it with me.  :
(They have just kissed.)
“You should know that I don’t even like you.”
(YES. I know. IT IS VERY RUDE of him to say that. )

I was so frustrated by the stupid guy at this point that I wanted to chuck my book against the wall. Except, that it was my Kindle.
Not an actual book.

So the reason this isn’t a five star book:

To conclude this book review, I’m just going to tell you,  I was greatly frustrated with this book. There were plot holes, a GREAT lack of world building, and the romance was cheesy at sometimes. I don’t really get why this book is such a worldwide favorite.  I’m guessing that sometimes girls get so desperate for love in their lives that they exhaust their energy into reading cheesy romance books.

Not me. I am perfectly fine being in love with a movie actor.
Or a singer.

Of course, if you are the kind of person, please, continue fantasizing over someone who isn’t real. Maybe one day you guys can start a fantastical life together.

Status Update


Hello, my dear friends and readers. It's time for a status update, since most of you are not following me on Goodreads.

Today is a good day. I just finished Angelfall, and while it wasn't amazing, I felt satisfied. What else is there going on that you might be interested in? Oh yes. Upcoming reviews this week. Considering I have a very big role in my school play and I have practice every day after school, I hope you will be understanding if there is only two or three. When I wake up in the morning, I go to school, play practice, go home and do homework, and go to bed. So, you know, I don't have too much time to read and write reviews.
Even though that is what I would do 24/7 if I could. I promise.
But, my play will be over at the end of March, and that is when everything will pick up the pace again. Four to five reviews a week, I promise.

March. March is exciting. One of the most exciting months for this blog, and probably also the busiest month I will have this whole entire year. So I might be exhausted trying to keep up with all the work. March will have a TON of book reviews, considering that March is the month when a million books that I want to read are coming out. Will I have time to review them all? Chances are, the answer is no. Most of them will have to be pushed back until April, when I have loads of freetime on my hands.

Also, this blog's Blogoversary is on March 30th. Yes, I realize that the first post ever on this blog was on April 23rd, but technically I moved this blog over from my old one, which was born on March 30th, 2011. So, I am going to celebrate it on that day instead.

Please help me out with this!! My goal was to get at least 50 followers by my one year mark. I LOVE all of my 39 members. But, I really want to reach my goal. Do you guys think we can get 11 more members? I totally think so. Please help out by getting your friends to join. Why? I will give you guys a reward!!!

Some of you may know this already, but I love to write. So, if we reach my goal, and more on top of that, I will post different original stories. And they won't be the cheesy stupid ones that I wrote in like two seconds. I will try to make them good stories. These are the rewards:

50-55 followers- 1 short story
56-65 followers- 3 short stories
66-70 followers- 4 short stories
70+ followers- two chapters from my dystopia novel.

Thanks and please comment below what kind of stories you would like me to write. BONUS PRIZE: If you told someone to follow me, email me their screen name along with your name. *THE PERSON WHO GETS THE MOST PEOPLE TO FOLLOW ME WILL GET AN EXCLUSIVE STORY THAT NO ONE ELSE WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS.*

And to close out, the 2-3 upcoming reviews this week. Angelfall is for sure, because it is almost done.

The Raft

12987986Book Title: The Raft
Author: S.A. Bodeen
Number of Pages: 231
Rating: 1 star
Genres: Survival
Books like it: NA
My favorite quote: NA
Brief 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.

My Summary:


This was one of the worst books that I have ever read. Hands down. My friend told me it was an amazing book, and so I picked it up, expecting greatness. What I got was a piece of trash that was called a book. The only reason I  finished this book is because I wanted to see if the main character would get what she deserved. That sounds awful, but I am telling you, this character made me wring my hair and want to scream in frustration. Word of advice: spare yourself the pain and agony of reading this book and just leave it alone.

A Basic Summary:

So basically what happens is the first few chapters we get some action, and then the rest of the book falls flat. This girl gets on a plane, it crashes, and she has to survive on a raft. Here is the problem. What is entertaining in a book about a girl who is stuck in the middle of the ocean on a raft? Nothing. She thinks about the birds and how they are more free than her. She hopes for rescue. She thinks about very boring and irrelevant things. This, in short, is the whole book. No plot, no action, no nothing except a girl feeling sorry for herself.



You are hungry? Bada bing! There is a king size bag of Skittles in one of the containers.
Oh, now you’re thirsty? Bada bing! Let’s make it rain so you can get a drink.
Oh, you’re getting dehydrated and might die? Bada bing! There is an island in front of you!
Oh, you need something to light a signal fire with? Bada bing! There is a lighter in the sand THAT WORKS!!!
Oh, you need to be rescued? Bada bing! There is a boat out there that could do the trick for you.
What’s that? I just spoiled some of the book for you? Oh good. Now you won’t have to suffer through actually reading it!
You are so welcome. I am so thoughtful.
And now you should move on to a different book. Because this one is awful.

A List of ALL the other problems:

Max went to a Taylor Swift concert.

Okay, I am just telling the author right now. IF you are going to write a book for young adults and include things that young adults like, DO YOUR RESEARCH.  So in highschool Max went to a Taylor Swift concert with his girlfriend. Max went to pilot school. So, he is probably in his late/mid twenties during the book. Being a Swiftie, I can tell you that her first tour was in 2009. Five years ago. SO,  what the author is implying is that Max went to a Taylor Swift concert in his highschool years, when in reality, when Taylor Swift started touring, he would have been about 23-25. No where near highschool age.


This is ONE OF THE WORST main characters I have EVER encountered. She was stupid, naive, and I wanted to smack her most of the time. She is in the middle of the ocean, with no water, no food, and no chance of survival, and what does she do? She complains about her nosering.

And then she says to Max: Is there anything worse than this?

Wow. Way to be brave and heroic and to fight your way out of this situation. You wanted a hero with backbone? Nah. Let’s just give you a self-centered, oh pity me kind of gal.

And this is where all of you guys are getting angry with me.
She’s on a raft, for crying out loud.

Well, yes, I am well aware of that. But shouldn’t she at least be TRYING to survive? DOES SHE EVEN WANT TO?

And then there was that one part-

Look at me. I am not even making any sense because I am so FRUSTRATED.


The author rushed this book WAY too much. The plot was boring and not well thought out, the main character was whiny and unrealistic, many parts of the book were rushed, and everything happened without a good reason behind it. It was a boring book with no action, except for the half a page where a shark comes and goes. But I wasn’t even worried that the shark was going to be a problem (which it wasn’t) so this book was boring anyway. Piece of advice: Stay away from this book. It has issues.

The Shadow Throne

Book Title: The Shadow Throne
Author: Jennifer Nielsen
17667561Number of Pages: 336
Rating: 4 stars
Genres: Action Adventure, Romance
Books like it: House of Secrets by Ned  Vizzini and Chris Columbus
My favorite quote: NA (sorry, not releasing any sneak peeks for this book!)
Brief Synopsis from Goodreads:
One war.
Too many deadly battles.
Can a king save his kingdom, when his own survival seems unlikely?

War has come to Carthya. It knocks at every door and window in the land. And when Jaron learns that King Vargan of Avenia has kidnapped Imogen in a plot to bring Carthya to its knees, Jaron knows it is up to him to embark on a daring rescue mission. But everything that can go wrong does.

His friends are flung far and wide across Carthya and its neighbouring lands. In a last-ditch effort to stave off what looks to be a devastating loss for the kingdom, Jaron undertakes what may be his last journey to save everything and everyone he loves. But even with his lightning-quick wit, Jaron cannot forestall the terrible danger that descends on him and his country. Along the way, will he lose what matters most? And in the end, who will sit on Carthya's throne?

Rousing and affecting, Jaron's adventures have thrilled and moved readers in The False Prince and The Runaway King. Journey once again with the Ascendant King of Carthya, as New York Times bestselling author Jennifer A. Nielsen brings his story to a stunning conclusion with The Shadow Throne.

My Summary:

*An advanced readers copy of this book was provided from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book will be released on February  26, 2014.


I did it, guys. I checked off my first New Year’s Book Nerd Resolution and got a NetGalley account. SO, you can imagine my excitement when I got an email announcing I had been approved to get an ARC from my favorite action-adventure series.


*Crosses “Get an ARC” off Bucket List*

Then I actually read the book, and it was even more of this:

I was so excited when I got this book. And for those of you who have not read the False Prince, (which is very, very sad) or The Runaway King (again, very very sad) I encourage you to go binge-read this series. This review will  contain MAJOR SPOILERS for the other two books.


My Synopsis:

The Shadow Throne picks up right where the Runaway King left off, with Carthya on the brink of war. Recently, series in the young adult genre have stumbled with their grand finales, but with The Ascendance Trilogy, this was not the case. Nielsen does not disappoint. The Shadow Throne is full of twists and turns, action, and a pinch of romance. I am actually quite sad to see this series end.

Jaron, the king that we know as quick-witted and sarcastic, faces his biggest challenge yet. Avenia advances towards his kingdom, readying for war, and his former allies pose as a threat as well. Jaron knows that he cannot give up his kingdom up, but he isn’t sure how long his forces can survive.

On top of this, Imogen, his best friend, has been captured and held for ransom. If he does not turn himself in, she could die. The country can’t win without him, but he doesn’t want to lose the girl slowly stealing his heart. Although he is denying any feelings for her, he can’t help thinking about her in ways he has never  thought about anyone.

Nielsen is one of my favorite authors of all time because she knows how to spin humor, mystery, and love into a beautiful book that you will never regret reading. You will need a box of feels tissues  for this book, definitely.

This book is fast paced, funny, and a very satisfying conclusion to a very satisfying series.


I apologize for this extremely short review, but I couldn’t say much without giving away the plot. Just read the book!

Even though Juliette shot him in order to escape, Warner can’t stop thinking about her—and he’ll do anything to get her back. But when the Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment arrives, he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner cannot allow.

Fracture Me is told from Adam’s perspective and bridges the gap between Unravel Me and Ignite Me. As the Omega Point rebels prepare to fight the Sector 45 soldiers, Adam's more focused on the safety of Juliette, Kenji, and his brother. The Reestablishment will do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam cares about.
