ARC Review: Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barns

Thank you Netgalley for allowing me to review this book!

Every Other Day
Author: Jennifer Lynn Barns
Page count 336

Book description from GoodReads:

Every other day, Kali D'Angelo is a normal sixteen-year-old girl. She goes to public high school. She attends pep rallies. She's human.
And then every day in between . . .She's something else entirely.
Though she still looks like herself, every twenty-four hours predatory instincts take over and Kali becomes a feared demon-hunter with the undeniable urge to hunt, trap, and kill zombies, hellhounds, and other supernatural creatures. Kali has no idea why she is the way she is, but she gives in to instinct anyway. Even though the government considers it environmental terrorism.
When Kali notices a mark on the lower back of a popular girl at school, she knows instantly that the girl is marked for death by one of these creatures. Kali has twenty-four hours to save her and, unfortunately, she'll have to do it as a human. With the help of a few new friends, Kali takes a risk that her human body might not survive. . .and learns the secrets of her mysterious condition in the process.

My Review:

Every other day Kali is a hunter, she doesn't feel pain, she doesn't die no matter what shes put her body threw. She is anything but human at the time. The days shes not, she is completely human and vulnerable even when she wants to believe she can handle the supernatural that no human has lived threw.
She baits a very deadly and fatal persist for her to host.
And it gets a little bit more supernatural when she hears her persist talking to her.

I was a little weary about reading this book but it was really good! There was action threw the whole book! I thought that one death was not needed though.
It kept you guessing wanting to know who is who they really are and what will happen.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Sexual Content: Minor.
Language: Minor.
Violence: Serisouly Extream. Not for the weak in stomach.
This book is due out December 27th.

ARC Review: Tris and Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison

I just wanted to say Thank You NetGalley for letting me review this book.

Tris and Izzie
Author: Mette Ivie Harrison
Page Count: 272

Book description from Goodreads

A modern retelling of the German fairytale "Tristan and Isolde", Tris and Izzie is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until -- she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking it herself accidentally, and falling in love with Tristan, the new guy at school
My Review

Izzie has been noticing her best friend, Branna, has been kind of off lately she thinks that she can make her happy by using some magic, but instead of helping her friend she accidentally ends up taking it herself.
Mark is Izzie's boyfriend he is just perfect in her eyes and she doesn't want to give him up at all but, she can't stand him anymore either.
Tristan just waltz's into Izzie's life and she couldn't hate him more for her loving him.
Izzie finds out the true reason why Tristan came into her life shortly after the potion incident, and realizes she has a quest before her that even her father couldn't finish.

This was my first ARC and I requested it on NetGalley, I was afraid I wouldn't like it at all, the description was ok, but it had horrible rating.... I downloaded it yesterday into the kindle and could not understand why no one has enjoyed it enough for it to only reach 2 stars.
I, for one, loved this book. It was by far one of the best ones I've read this year. There was somethings that was off like, Izzies mom asked Tristan where he was staying, which was on the streets! And she did nothing for him to stay there she just let her daughter boss her.

Izzie now, can seem rude but really you just took a love potion accidentally and find out your going to love this one person forever? Wouldn't you be a little bit irritable too?

Brenna, she annoyed me. end of story.

I savored every single page, it kept you surprised and wanting more.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Sexual Content: Minor, just kissing not very detailed.
Language: None!
Violence: Mild, but kinda gives bloody details.
This book is due out October 11th.

ARC Review: The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen

The Mephisto Covenant
Author Trinity Faegen
Page Count: 448

Book Descrepsion from Goodreads

Sasha is desperate to find out who murdered her father. When getting the answer means pledging her soul to Eryx, she unlocks a secret that puts her in grave danger—Sasha is Anabo, a daughter of Eve, and Eryx’s biggest threat.
A son of Hell, immortal, and bound to Earth forever, Jax looks for redemption in the Mephisto Covenant—God’s promise he will find peace in the love of an Anabo. After a thousand years, he’s finally found the girl he’s been searching for: Sasha.
With the threat of Eryx looming, Jax has to keep Sasha safe and win her over. But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?

My Review

I loved the story line of this book, the idea that Eve had a daughter before Eve sinned was really neat Eve's daughter knows no sin and there for can not sin.
I really did like the story, and it would get 5 out of 5 stars but, sadly, that isn't going to be what I'm rating this book.
My Rating: 1 out of 5 stars
I wanted to like this book so much... I actually finished it, even though half way I wanted to put down the book. I felt like I wouldn't be fair to the author not reading the whole book. I loved the whole idea of it, it was really interesting.
 I love the concept of it and it would be given 5 stars if the language and sexual content wasn't off the charts. 105 words? seriously? I'm sure teenagers have pretty filthy mouths but shouldn't books be teaching them this isn't cool? And the sexual content, lets not go there. Not to mention attempted rape. and dog got killed, that took away one star for sure. 

What really did it in for me was the language, I had to take a break from the book because it felt like it was too much.
If you don't care about any of this stuff then try the book.
Sexual Content: Very Heavy.
Lanuage: Heavy, 105 words.
Violence: Heavy.
Thanks to NetGalley for allowing me to review this book.

The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore



In the beginning they were a group of nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorians, who scattered on Earth and went into hiding, who look like ordinary teenagers, but who have extraordinary skills. The Mogadorians killed Number One, Number Two, and Number Three. They tried to kill Number Four, John Smith ...and failed.

Following a massive battle at the end of I AM NUMBER FOUR that proved that the Mogadorians have found him at last, John joined forces with Number Six. Now the fate of Lorien—and Earth— rests in the hands of these two teens.

Already John and Six have inspired a fellow Lorien—Marina, Number Seven—who has been hiding in Spain. She’s been following the news of what’s happening in the US, and she’s certain it’s the sign she’s been waiting for.

I AM NUMBER FOUR: The Lost Files: Six’s Story



In the beginning they were a group of nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorians; nine who scattered on Earth and went into hiding; nine who live among us and look like ordinary teenagers, but who have extraordinary skills. The Mogadorians found and killed Numbers One, Two, and Three. Then they found Number Six. They followed her, they hunted her down—and they caught her.

Taking place before the adventures of the New York Times bestseller I AM NUMBER FOUR, I AM NUMBER FOUR: The Lost Files: Six’s Story is the riveting story of Six’s harrowing capture and eventual escape from the Mogadorians. Perfectly timed to get fans excited for THE POWER OF SIX and custom-made for the those who loved the I AM NUMBER FOUR ebook, I AM NUMBER FOUR: The Lost Files: Six’s Story is a novella-length digital original available exclusively as an ebook.

Review: The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell

The Vespertine
Author: Saundra Mitchell
Page Count: 293
Book Description from GoodReads:
A 19th-century historical romance set in Victorian Baltimore about Amelia van den Broek, whose prophetic dreams have made her the talk of high society, and whose love for an artist distinctly outside of the social circle that threatens her place in it.

My Review
Amelia is sent to her cousins home in New York to teach her to be more lady like and find a rich husband that her brother, August, finds suitable.The night she arrives there is a dance being held at her cousins house, Amelia is completely out of the circle that her cousin, Zora has with everyone around but, that's just fine with her because Nathaniel has his full attention on her. Later that night Amelia has a vision, she tells Zora about it and soon it's all over town and people are calling for her to tell their fortune. After she saves a girls life by her knowing the future, Amelia feels as though she has done a good deed. But it isn't until it back fires that Amelia wishes she had never told anyone about her seeing the future.
Amelia sees Nathaniel almost on a daily basis' but it isn't until one night that she surprises him with a visit and finds out truly how he always seems to come out of no where around her.

This was my first historical read, even though it took some time to get use to the old timey talk it was really good. I didn't know what to expect when I read this book, I actually never read anything about it but I'm glad I got it! Zora and Amelia have a sister like relationship and are quite rebels for that time. Nathaniel was the most worst gentleman and best.
Even though it was very sad toward the ending, its worth it. The second book doesn't follow Nathaniel and Amelia, but Zora so I'm instreted in what the author will have in her life.

Sexual content: None!
Language: None!
Violence: Mild.

Photos from The Hunger Games movie!

Entertainment Weekly has all new photos of The Hunger Games movie (due out in March 23rd 2012). The Magazine will be out the 29Th and have extras!

Obviously this will be the scene when Katniss talks about Peeta burning the bread *accidentally* and dropping it on the ground near her.

Looks like this is the part when Katniss is up in the tree and he's with the Careers maybe? What do you think?

I can't wait for the movie. It's acually really close! I can't believe their making it in such a short time, I always thought movies took longer!

Review: Switch by Carol Snow

Author: Carol Snow

Page count: 215

Book description from Goodreads:

Claire Martin has some serious body issues.
Ever since Claire hit her teens, electrical storms have been making her switch bodies. Usually she's back to her old self in no time. But when something goes terribly wrong, she finds herself stuck in the fabulous body—and life—of Larissa, the icy blonde beauty who has caught the eye of Nate, Claire's longtime crush.
Will Claire ever figure out how to get her old life back? And, more importantly, will she even want to?


My Review

Claire has more issues then just her body, she can see her dead grandmother, and she can switch body's with other people. Not just anybody though, they for one must be born under the same moon as her and two, they must be within a mile.

But when Claire switch's with a beautiful girl who is only there babysitting for the summer she doesn't want to give it up, she finally catches the eye of her crush, Nate, and can act in whatever way she wants. She feels as though she has power over the people around her.
With having Nate falling seriously for her, she can't decide wither she truly, whole heartily, wants to be Claire ever again.

This book is more for a quick read because you don't want a big book or one in a series. It was alright. I wouldn't recommend it though. I did like the concept of when there is a lighting storm or any electricity that she switches body.

My rating: 2 out of 5 stairs


Sexual content: Just kissing, so minor.

Language: Minor, 10 to 15 words.

Violence: None!

There is mention of smoking, drugs and alcohol.

Review: The Hollow by Jessica Verday

Author: Jessica Verday

Page Count: 512

Book description from Goodreads:

When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen's funeral, and keeps reappearing in Abbey's life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he's the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again...but also special.
Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen's betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her—one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity.


My Review

Abby has some serious issues that needs to be resolved, instead she ignores them completely and go about life as if nothing is wrong. Her best friend, Kristen is missing, but it isn't until they find her body that Abby accepts the reality and starts to slowly hit rock bottom.

She and Kristen has a favorite place next to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, the river Kristen died in. One day Abby just randomly meets a boy, Caspian, there with blond hair with a black streak, they start to meet alot there.

Halloween night, prom night, Abby goes into hysterics goes to the river and gets into the rushing water, Caspian sees her there and begs of her to come out of the water. When she does he walks her home.The next day they meet at the library, but after what happens that day Caspian trys to avoid Abby the best he can.

I liked this book, but I didn't like it awhole lot because it did have slow parts in it. I think the next book will be alot better. Abby was very weird, she needed help badly. I hope she'll be better in the last two books. Caspian is really sweet but you don't really have much on him.

*start of spoiler* I think the reason why Caspian could touch her is because it was his anniversary of his death, BUT I have no clue why that would happen! *end of spoiler* I really liked that Abby made perfume, I thought that was so cool. Hopefully I'll be able to get the next book because I'd really like to see how Caspian thinks hes going to make things work!

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars


Sexual Content: None!

Language: Minor, 10 words tops.

Violence: None! Mention of blood sightly.

Review: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

Author: Kelly Creagh
Authors website
Authors Facebook
Page Count: 542
Reading Level: Young Adult

Book description from Goodreads:

Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look.
Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life.
As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares.
His life depends on it.


My Review:

Isobel enjoys cheerleading, and of course has the football player boyfriend. She's happy and pretty carefree but one day the most dreadful thing happens, Mr. Swanson announces a special project for the class and he picks partners. Of course Isobel gets stuck with the so called King of Goths, from there it all goes down hill.
The first night Varen and Isobel work on the project, as she goes home something follows her. Calls her name. Chases her.
Then Reynolds starts coming into her dreams.
Then Pinfeathers comes into the picture.
Then Varen asks Isobel to a Goth Bash.
The night of the Goth Bash Isobel decides to tell Varen how she feels about him but as soon as they tell each other The White One takes him into the Dream World where Isobel must save him and free him.

I really liked this book. Its awhole lot better then it sounds! I love Gwen. She is very funny and this book has alot of funny new sayings. I thought with Isobel being a cheerleader she would be all into herself and think shes better then everyone else, but at first she kinda comes out as that but she quickly changes, her boyfriend Brad is a complete jerk. Varen is.... well... an odd ball. lol. I liked this book awhole lot more then I thought I would.

My rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Sexual Content: Minor.
Cursing: Mild, most likely 20 words in the whole book.
Violence: I want to say mild, but last night I had a nightmare from it sooo I'll rate it, Moderate.

Review: The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller

The Eternal Ones
Author: Kirsten Miller
Books Website
Page Count: 410
Reading Level: Young Adult

Book description from Goodreads:

Haven Moore can't control her visions of a past with a boy called Ethan, and a life in New York that ended in fiery tragedy. In our present, she designs beautiful dresses for her classmates with her best friend Beau. Dressmaking keeps her sane, since she lives with her widowed and heartbroken mother in her tyrannical grandmother's house in Snope City, a tiny town in Tennessee. Then an impossible group of coincidences conspire to force her to flee to New York, to discover who she is, and who she was.
In New York, Haven meets Iain Morrow and is swept into an epic love affair that feels both deeply fated and terribly dangerous. Iain is suspected of murdering a rock star and Haven wonders, could he have murdered her in a past life? She visits the Ouroboros Society and discovers a murky world of reincarnation that stretches across millennia. Haven must discover the secrets hidden in her past lives, and loves before all is lost and the cycle begins again.


My Review:

Haven is accused that she had a demon inside her because she faints, talks about people she's never met and has visions. Her father died in an car accident, he believed she was a reincarnation of someone else long ago. She now lives with her grandmother, well more less GrandMoster, and mother. Haven hasn't faited nor had visions about Ethan since her father died, until few months before she is suppose to leave to New York. Her grandmother cancels that and Haven is later on home lock down pretty much. Though she feels drawn to New York and knows she must go there one way or another.

Haven annoyed me to death. The first 150 pages is all about how Haven has a demon and she is forced to go to church every Sunday and her grandmother is obnoxious, all it talks about is religion the whole time until Haven leaves for New York.

Then! The next problem. Haven. She has trust issues horribly! She finds Iain, says she loves him blah blah blah and follows him trys to come up with an excuse to leave him, when he seriously built her old house that they died in and remembered every single thing that sit in the house when she lived in it. Yet, she still refuses to trust him. Now Iain did lie some so I could understand why she had to see what he was up to, but he was trying to protect her from someone that has been after them for along time. Haven had trust issues threw the whole book up until the last 5 pages.

I enjoyed this book somewhat, I hope the next one is better. The next book is called All You Desire and comes out August 9th.

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.

Sexual Content: Minor
Cursing: Mild, most likely over 100 words though
Violence: None
There was use of drugs but not between the main character's.

This is the Paperback cover, I really like the paperback better then the hardcover one! I'll be getting the Paperback when it comes out in, July 5Th.

Review: Hush, Hush & Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Hush Hush
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Authors Website
Becca's Facebook Page
Page Count: 391
Reading Level: Young Adult

Book description from Goodreads:

For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.


My Review

This whole book is suspenseful, not to mention you can not predict anything.
Nora is still recovering from her fathers murder less then a year ago, her mother is gone alot for work so they can keep their house. In Bio (which for the time being is pretty much Sex Ed.) Coach decides it'd be best to switch partners around. Nora's best friend, Vee, is swapped for the one guy who no one even knows. From that moment he, Patch, takes his seat next to Nora her whole life changes.
Patch keeps popping up Nora feels drawn to him but at the same time tries to stay away from him because she's not sure he's not her new found stalker.

I loved this book, I could not guess what was going to happen next so, I had this book finished in two days. Vee, Nora's best friend, is very annoying I could have punched her a few times and told her to keep her nose out of Nora's business. Patch on the other hand I found to not be annoying at all :) the way he made Nora uncomfortable out of no where was so funny.

My rating 4 out of 5 starts

Sexual Rating- Mild but proceed with caution
Cursing- Very Mild, maybe 5 cuss words tops.
There is mention of alcohol and drugs often and smoking.
Violence: Minor

Crescendo (#2 to Hush Hush)

Page Count: 427

Book description from Goodreads:

Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar.

Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Path hadn't been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something.

Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperately searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts


My Review:

After I read Hush, Hush I had to go get the second book the very next day.

Crescendo is your typical break up second book, seems like in all the second book's people always break up!

Nora and Patch have had a great two months until one night Nora says the most worst possible thing.. Since Patch is no longer a Fallen Angel and now Nora's Guardian Angel the Archangels look for Patch to mess up and fall the exact same way he did.

To protect Patch and herself Nora tries not to notice Patch but at the same time wants to be with him.

As Patch and Mercie (Nora's lest favorite person in the world) start to be together awhole lot more then Nora likes she starts to go after Scott, the boy who just moved back to Coldwater, but she suspects there is something unusual about him.

Nora starts to receive letters and package from an anonymous person who claims they know who killed her father she can't help but expect that Patch is behind it all.

I could have hated this book, BUT it wasn't until the end that everything that was going on made sence, even the reason why Patch was being the way he was with Marcie. So even if you completly start to hate this book keep reading it until the end because it really turns around. Also, I acually liked Vee in this one, she was not as pushy as she was in the first one, annoying yes, but she was A.L.W.A.Y.S there for Nora.

My rating 3 out of 5

My rating after finishing the last 15 pages 5 out of 5


Sexual rating: Mild but proceed with caution

Cussing: Mild, but most likly 20 words tops.

Mention of drugs and alcohol

Violence: Mild


Silence (#3 to Hush, Hush)

Comes out October 4th

This is the sole reason why I read Hush, Hush... When I seen this book cover I started reading Hush, Hush within 10 minutes.

Book description from Goodreads:

The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever.

Review: Mockingjay By Suzanne Collins

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3)
Author: Suzanne Collins
Page Count: 390
Reading Level: Young Adult

Book description from Goodreads:

Young Katniss Everdeen has survived the dreaded Hunger Games not once, but twice, but even now she can find no relief. In fact, the dangers seem to be escalating: President Snow has declared an all-out war on Katniss, her family, her friends, and all the oppressed people of District 12. The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding


My Review:

I'm going to cut to the chase, I loved the first half. I really did, but after I finished the second half it depressed me all day!
Katniss has to decide to be the Mockingjay for the rebels, which mainly means she'll just be recorded and the rebels will make propos for everyone, including the people in the capital to see that they are going to invade... Really they were just using Katniss I felt like, but I understood that she had alot more influence then anyone else to the people.
Coin be Snow. I just got that impression from her as soon as she first appeared. She is very ruthless, but atlest she brings down the capital.
The war is the bloodiest and gruesome. It's way worse then any horror movie I've seen! So be very ready for some gore.
When they were going threw the outer parts of the Capitol I felt like they were going threw candy land or something, silly I know, but these people love color!
I thought alot that happened during the end was very unnecessary, and where it left off at, just wasn't good enough for me. I atlest wanted another 100 pages or so of Katniss and her pick of guy (try not to spoil that for anyone), I wanted a better happy ending. But Atlest it was half way of a happy ending.

One of my faveriate secens:

Haymitch leans forward and dangles something on a thin white wire in front of my nose. It's hard to focus on, but I'm pretty sure what it is. He drops it to the sheets. "That is your earpiece. I will give you exactly one more chance to wear it. If you remove it from your ear again, I'll have you fitted with this." He holds up some sort of metal headgear that I instantly name the head shackle. "It's an alternative audio unit that locks around your skull and under your chin until its opened with a key. And I'll have the one key. If for some reason you're clever enough to disable it"- Haymitch dumps the head shackle on the bed and whips out a tiny silver clip- "I'll authorize them to surgically implant this transmitter into your ear so that I may speak to you twenty-four hours a day."
Haymitch in my head full-time. Horrifying. "I'll keep the ear piece in" I mutter.
"Excuse me?" he says.
"I'll keep the earpiece in!" I say, loud enough to wake half the hospital.
"You sure? Because I'm equally happy with any of the three options," he tells me.
"I'm sure," I say.

My rating: 4 out of 5

I don't recall of any curse words, (I should start writting this stuff down!) But if there was any at all, it wasn't many at all.
it is very very gorey like I stated above.
This book has less kissing then the other two books.

Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2)

Author: Suzanne Collins

Page Count: 391

Reading Level: Young Adult

Book description from Goodreads:

Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won the annual competition described in Hunger Games, but the aftermath leaves these victors with no sense of triumph. Instead, they have become the poster boys for a rebellion that they never planned to lead. That new, unwanted status puts them in the bull's-eye for merciless revenge by The Capitol.


My Review

The second book to The Hunger Games has alot of surprises in it, Katniss and Peeta haven't had a conversation since they won the Hunger Games and returned to district 12, now it's time for the Victory Tour.

Katniss has an unexpected visitor right before the Tour starts, she learns that she has set a uprising between the distracts and if she doesn't convince everyone including Snow that she truly pulled the berries out because she loves Peeta, then Gales life is at stake. On top of it all, the 75th Hunger Games is coming up, which means it's a Quarter Quell and what Snow has planned for it is something no one sees coming.

I heard that the second and third book to this series isn't nearly as good as the first, but I LOVED the second just as much as the first, Peeta surprises everyone yet again when you least expect it, Cinnas wardrobe is just as awesome and it has a little bit more humor.
I loved Peeta even more in the second book, he has to be the best male character that I have read about yet.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars


This book has alot of violence,
afew short kissing scenes,
and mild cussing.

Review: The Lost Saint by Bree Despain

The Lost Saint, second book to The Dark Divine

Author: Bree Despain

Page Count: 404

Reading Level: Young Adult

Book description from Goodreads:

A family destroyed. A love threatened. An enemy returns.

Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She was infected with the werewolf curse while trying to save him, and lost her beloved brother in the process. Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot, a newcomer to town. But as the two grow closer, Grace's relationship with Daniel is put in danger - in more ways than one. Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace begins to give into the wolf inside of her - not realizing that an enemy has returned and a deadly trap is about to be sprung.

Bree Despain delivers sizzling romance and thrilling action in the heart-pounding sequel to the The Dark Divine.


My review

Grace and Daniel have been training to help Grace find balance with her powers, to not let the wolf over take her, but with her brother gone for 11 months and an unexpected call from him everything starts to go on a world win.

Daniel is becoming distant, he has a secret of his own he's keeping.

Gabriel comes to town, telling Grace she can't handle her powers and she can not be trained any longer.

Grace decides she can handle whatever comes her way. So when Talbot shows up telling Grace she can and not fall to the wolf, she'll do anything to train with him.

The night of killing her first demon Grace finds out who she can and can't trust.

I loved The Dark Divine and I couldn't wait to get The Lost Saint, I have to say I got upset a lot while reading the book, with how selfish Grace was acting and how she wanted to be with Talbot, but I had to keep reminding myself it was the Wolf.

Bree can really send you on an emotional roller coaster.

I.Can.Not.Wait.For.The.Next.Book! The way it ends you will be falling to the wolf inside of you with anticipation with what will happen next.

I debated with myself on how I was going to rate The Lost Saint. So it shall be.

4 1/2 stars


This book has mild cussing in it.

Some kissing.

Talk about sex twice but not detailed at all.

and violence.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins review

The Hunger Games

Author: Suzanne Collins

Page Count: 374

Reading Level: Young Adult

Book description from Goodreads:

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.


My Review:

Katniss has been hunting for several years now to feed her family, its not legal though for her to go out in the woods and hunt, but she must. Her father died in a mine explosion, just before he did he started teaching Katniss how to shoot a bow and arrow to kill game. Not long after she started hunting she found Gale, a guy few years older then her hunting for his family also in the woods. They became a team not long after.

The of the reaping Katniss and Gale are in the woods Gale says, they could run away together. Katniss is surprised, she doesn't know how to take this information she's never felt anything romantic toward Gale... At lest she didn't use too.

At the reaping where one girl and one boy is chosen from 12 districts Katnisses sisters name is drawn but, she is only 12 so Katniss volunteers to take her place.

The boy, is Petta, the bakers son who has saved Katniss' life in a way he doesn't understand.


I got this book without knowing anything about it, I just got it because everyone was talking about it, but it sit on my shelves for along while collecting dust.. It was nothing what I thought it would be like! It was really good, sad, and scary toward the end. It's, of course, a love triangle between Katniss, Gale, and Peeta. At first I loved Gale I wanted Katniss and Gale to get together but definitely right at the end of it, I choose Peeta all the way!

If you like futuristic books and bloody battles and romance you should read The Hunger Games.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This book has blood scenes and only afew curse words.

Here is the Video
Also, there isn't anything sad shown in the video, just lions running around : )

Review: Matched by Ally Condie

Author: Ally Condie
Page Count: 366
Authors Blog
Reading Level: Young Adult

Book description from Goodreads:

Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.
The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.


My Review:

Matched has alot of surprises for you. It draws you in at the beginning when Cassia goes to her Matched banquet, it has twist that you would not expect!

Everyone gets three pills they carry with them Blue, Green, and red tablet. Blue saves you, Green calms you down, and no one knows what Red does there's only rumors about it.

Cassia is matched to her best friend, that is rare enough, but when she finally decides to read the micro card they gave her about her match she gets a unexpected surprise.

In the end Cassia has a quest on her hands, to get the man she truly loves back.

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars


This book is completely clean, not even one cuss word.
