Waiting on Wednesday (#39) - The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle


Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine

The Infinite Moment of Us

For as long as she can remember, Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents. But as high school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: Pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now . . . not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn’t even know what they are?
Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart’s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie—at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.
And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them . . .
Sexy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction’s greatest writers.

Why I'm Waiting For It: Contemporaries has been a genre that I love reading and while some are amazing others falls short. The Infinite Moment of Us sounds amazing and the cover had this sky cover that makes me want to grab this! Crossing my fingers it turns to be a great read :D

Wickedly Amazing: The Fault In Our Stars - John Green

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault In Our Stars by John Green 
Date Released: January 10, 2012
Publisher: Dutton Books 

Pages: 316 Pages
Format: Hardcover
Source: Barnes and Noble
Rating: Amazing/Loved
Series: Standalone

Goodreads Synopsis: Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.  

From Goodreads



John Green is nothing short of brilliant.


The Fault In Our Stars was one of the most refreshing, absorbing, and hands down pure awesomeness! With all the books I read in 2013, TFIOS makes it to the top of the list! Perfect characters, witty and humorous dialogue, and indescribable. Anyone will fall in love with John Green after reading this! With TFIOS being my first John Green book, I'm happy to say it won't be my last.

Hazel, a young and upcoming character of age is diagnosed with a tumor that is shrinking, she finds something out of the ordinary, Augustus Waters. Hazel was such a perfect narrator for TFIOS, she was real and raw and I loved her guts! Augustus is someone Hazel wants to experience, he's wild and full of revelations Hazel never knew she can undercover in her life. Augustus was perfect for complementing Hazel! There was a real sense of connection between them and I loved it when they said sarcastic remarks towards each other! I loved Hazel and Gus a lot and I honestly wished the book was longer just so we can see more of them. John Green trailed her characters perfectly and you'll fall in love with each one since the first page :)

TFIOS hits every note in a great contemporary novel. I was expecting something sad and depressing, my TFIOS was tenderhearted and warming. Even when John Green surprises readers towards the end, I felt so real and I honestly cried. *sobs* It's probably the first contemporary that made me sob right next to Thirteen Reasons Why, and with the water works made me love it even better! Hazel's story is real and came alive on every page. 

The Fault In Ours Stars will make you 
cry, 

laugh, 


and bawl. 


There's just no other way to say how amazing this book is and John Green is full of brilliant for writing this!! Pick this book up now no matter what. Go out and grab it!

A Mind Blowing Debut: Sweet Evil - Wendy Higgins

Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy, #1)Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
Date Released: May 1, 2012
Publisher: HarperTeen 

Pages: 453 Pages
Format: ARC
Source: Won from Jen @ YA Romantics
Rating: Loved
Series: (The Sweet Trilogy #1) 

Goodreads Synopsis: Embrace the Forbidden

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences?

This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.
Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She's aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn't until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He's the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.
Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns? 


From Goodreads






I needed a really good paranormal read for summer and no doubt I picked up Sweet Evil and it makes me want to read paranormal all over again. Sweet Evil does paranormal in YA justice, and it was fresh, new, and provocative. Sweet Evil was a perfect paranormal read filled with hot romance, action, and a new take on the deadly sins. 


Going into Sweet Evil, I thought it wouldn't be my type of book, Wendy Higgins turned it around when I started to read fast and seeing where Anna goes. Wendy's writing is what gets you hooked, full on insta - hooked. I also loved how she took a different approach to bad influences on teens and the deadly sins. Anna Whitt was born with a sixth sense to feel and see the emotions of other people. She's struggle with her abilities and when she has a growing pull to captivating Kaiden Rowe she has no idea what she's getting into. There was so many great and steamy scenes with Anna and Kaiden that it felt so real. Wendy wrote very simple but she adds depth that make it even better! *Nods head* When it gets to these steamy scenes, Wendy's writing screams full on provocative!

image

With Anna's ability also come a history she also learns more about her dad, mom, Kaiden, and herself. I loved reading all about the deadly sins (there was even a glossary in the back that explains each sin with a characters name), the fall of the demons and angels, it was all so absorbing and engaging.  I like how Kaiden revealed what Anna is in great scenes that really capture great moments in the book. Sweet Evil does paranormal in YA justice, it wasn't like any other paranormal read I read and I'm dying to figure what happens with Anna and Kaiden, but also if she'll turn to the halo or the horns? Honestly, picked Sweet Evil up now! It was such a mind blowing debut that has great romance, scorching scenes, and heart racing choices. Sweet Evil is a must read for any paranormal reader!

Discussion Post: Things I Should I Done When Blogging



This Week's Topic:
"Things I Should Have Done"

As a blogger, you always wonder what should I have done to get more comments, followers, etc on my blog. For me I definitely should have been more focused on content rather than design. Here are my list of things I should have done starting to blog.

"Content Rather Than Design" 
Starting off blogging, I was so focused on m my design, getting it perfect  with a sidebar filled with eye catching widgets, content fell and dropped. It's vital to have great content, knock out those reviews even though you don't get comment, people read it. Once you establish yourself for a good 2-3 months, hit up the design. Get a blog makeover, with custom blog buttons, etc. Content over design first. 

image
It will definitely help lower the stress level :) 

"Goodreads, Twitter, Facebook"
Goodreads, twitter, and Facebook were three places a blogger should definitely establish themselves. 
-Goodreads is good for reaching out to authors, vital for book reviews, and book clubs. It's like Facebook for book readers in a way. 
-Twitter is vital and super important in reaching out to big name publishers, authors, bloggers, and readers alike. I never found a blogger without a twitter, and if you don't have one make one. 
-Facebook even though it's know for family and friends, it's also a great place to set up a blog page and meet your readers and have chats on posts. It's very fun and super social :)
In addition, every blogger needs social icons on their sidebar so any blogger, author, or publisher willing to get into contact with you can find you easily. 


"Formatting"
Formatting is one thing I should have done sooner when I first started to blog. It's so important to have a format for your reviews like pages, publisher, published date, etc. It's also great to have a Word doc, with your format template for reviews or any type of posts. This absolutely helped me a lot and it's better than opening up new tabs to grab the button or format. It's a lifesaver!

image

I use this for my reviews:

Title with Author
Date Released:
Publisher: 
Pages:
Format:
Source:
Rating:
Series: 

It's also important reviews and post have the same consistency  Sit down and take a moment to see the way you want your post to be. Having the perfect formatting helps your blog so much in the future, and soon you'll see how easy it is to write up reviews and posts. 

These are my things I should have done when I first started to blog and hopefully you can improve your blog even better :) Also, if you have any ideas for discussion posts, comment below and it might be a post!

Waiting on Wednesday (#38) - The Shadow Prince by Bree Despain



Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine



Haden Lord, the disgraced prince of the Underrealm, has been sent to the mortal world to entice a girl into returning with him to the land of the dead. Posing as a student at Olympus Hills High—a haven for children of the rich and famous—Haden must single out the one girl rumored to be able to restore immortality to his race.

Daphne Raines has dreams much bigger than her tiny southern Utah town, so when her rock star dad suddenly reappears, offering her full tuition to Olympus Hills High’s prestigious music program, she sees an opportunity to catch the break she needs to make it as a singer. But upon moving into her estranged father’s mansion in California, and attending her glamorous new school, Daphne soon realizes she isn’t the only student in Olympus who doesn’t quite belong.

Haden and Daphne—destined for each other—know nothing of the true stakes their fated courtship entails.  As war between the gods brews, the teenagers’ lives collide. But Daphne won’t be wooed easily and when it seems their prophesied link could happen, Haden realizes something he never intended—he’s fallen in love. Now to save themselves, Haden and Daphne must rewrite their destinies. But as their destinies change, so do the fates of both their worlds.

A pulsating romance of epic proportions, Bree Despain’s The Shadow Princewill leave her fans breathless for the next book in the Into The Dark series.

Why I'm Waiting For It:  I haven't picked up Bree's Dark Divine series, but looking at The Shadow Prince I'm dying to read one of her books! Not only does it have a great cover, but also a great storyline and I love any mythology books. Can't wait!

The Shadow Prince will be released on March 11, 2014 from Egmont USA

Even Better Than The First: Winter White - Jen Calonita

Winter White (Belles, #2)Winter White by Jen Calonita 
Date Released: October 9, 2012
Publisher: Poppy

Pages: 368 Pages
Format: E-Book
Source: Library
Rating: Amazing
Series: (Belles #2)

Goodreads Synopsis: Isabelle Scott and Mirabelle Monroe are still reeling from the revelation that they share more than just the roof over their heads. The media has pounced on their story, and while Izzie and Mira have each put on a happy public face, someone is leaking their true feelings to the press. It seems as if the world is watching their every move, but at least the girls have each other.
With cotillion season right around the corner, however, Izzie and Mira have barely had time to process their newfound sisterhood. Mira has dreamed of making her debut in a gorgeous white gown forever--now if only she had an escort... Izzie, meanwhile, is still struggling to find her place in Emerald Cove, which seems ever more impossible with EC mean girls, young and old, trying to keep her down. As cotillion preparations heat up, there are dance steps to learn, manners to perfect... and secret initiations to complete?
It's time for the gowns to go on and the gloves to come off.

From Goodreads




Winter White is Jen Calonita's second book in her Belles series and I devoured Winter White in a day! Her books are always so easy to pick up but hard to put down, and Winter White was exactly that. I liked seeing how Mira and Izzie were put through more choices, deal with heartbreak, and finding who you are despite the past. I am definitely going to pick up the next book, The Grass is Always Greener on The Other Side soon. Winter White was amazing and I have huge expectations for the next book!

With a stunning revelation in Belles, sisters Mira and Isabelle share more than they ever knew. Isabelle believe she doesn't belong in Emerald Cove, where the rich kids reside and even the comforts of Harborside don't comfort her. With a mysterious person leaking a Mira and Izzie's true feeling to the press, both wonder the dirty little secrets of Emerald Cove. Mira and Isabelle were even better in Winter White, than in Belles! Even with an alternate, 3rd person POV, Jen manages to hooked the reader with lies and secrets throughout the book. In Belles we saw Izzie's fitting in, in Winter White the stakes are higher with Cotillion and the plotting of Savanga Ingram. I love how we also see other great characters like Dylan, Brayden's sister and more of Mira and Izzie's friends. The tension was perfect and the plotting was great! There's was never a moment that made me bored.

In Winter White, there was definitely some backstabbing and lies that made the book even better. It's that type of book that gets you racing through the end! I loved the characters, they were so relatable and engaging, you can easily be in their shoes. Izzie was just one of those great, semi rebellious characters while Mira standed up for herself more and made better choices. Winter White was one of best books I read this year and it was such a perfect blend of backstabbing, lies, but also learning about who your friends and enemies are. Pick up Belles soon, it's a book you won't regret :)

Pages: 542 Pages

Rating: LOVED
Series: (Watersong #4) 

Goodreads Synopsis:Readers won't want to miss the explosive final book in the Watersong series by New York Times bestselling author Amanda Hocking

Now that Gemma holds the key to breaking the siren curse, the stakes have never been higher. At last, a future with those she loves—and a romance with Alex—is close enough to touch...but not if Penn has anything to say about it. Penn is more determined than ever to have Daniel for her own and to destroy Gemma and Harper along the way, and Penn always gets what she wants. Now a final explosive battle is about to begin, and the winner will take everything Gemma holds dear. 

From Goodreads
My First Reaction picking this up 


I was so happy to receive Elegy for review since I loved the Watersong series so much! Just reading the synopsis I was going to devour this, and Amanda Hocking definitely delivers in an explosive finale. Elegy was a perfect ending with tons of action, funny moments, and heart racing moments. Do not miss this one at all!

The best thing I love about the Watersong series is how light and easy it start and Elegy was the struck the balance even as a last book. Elegy picks up where Tidal ending, tensions are heating up in Capri as Gemma and Harper are busy on destroying the scroll and Penn's ever tempting attraction toward Daniel. The pacing of Elegy was done great, I knew where I was in the story even if I picked up other books and the characters were even better in this book! Marcy was such a fun and witty character, I loved her! Her remarks were so fun to read and she has this great personality throughout the whole series. Daniel went through a lot in Elegy. His relationship with Harper was tested against Penn and as for Gemma she's finding real love with Alex. The cast of characters are the best part of the watersong series. Have great characters you get an amazing story, no doubt, the Watersong series was one of the best this year.


  Elegy had a depth and complexity than it's preceders. There's the mystery of the scroll, and deciphering the words and finding ways to destroy the sirens. It definitely gave the book a great mystery and the explosive battle towards the end was killer. The action was off the charts and I love seeing Gemma embrace her inner siren to fight against the sirens.  

It was just wow.

Elegy was an explosive ending to the watersong series. Filled with a action, heartbreaking choices, Elegy was one of the best books I read this year! I definitely can't wait for any new Amanda Hocking books and I know she'll definitely deliver :) Pick up the Watersong series this summer!

Waiting on Wednesday (#37) - The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon



Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine

The Bone Season

It is the year 2059. Several major world cities are under the control of a security force called Scion. Paige Mahoney works in the criminal underworld of Scion London, part of a secret cell known as the Seven Seals. The work she does is unusual: scouting for information by breaking into others’ minds. Paige is a dreamwalker, a rare kind of clairvoyant, and in this world, the voyants commit treason simply by breathing.

But when Paige is captured and arrested, she encounters a power more sinister even than Scion. The voyant prison is a separate city—Oxford, erased from the map two centuries ago and now controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. These creatures, the Rephaim, value the voyants highly—as soldiers in their army.

Paige is assigned to a Rephaite keeper, Warden, who will be in charge of her care and training. He is her master. Her natural enemy. But if she wants to regain her freedom, Paige will have to learn something of his mind and his own mysterious motives.

The Bone Season introduces a compelling heroine—a young woman learning to harness her powers in a world where everything has been taken from her. It also introduces an extraordinary young writer, with huge ambition and a teeming imagination. Samantha Shannon has created a bold new reality in this riveting debut.

Why I'm Waiting For It: British Author? Possible new J.K Rowling? Amazing sypnosis? Count me in! I abosultuely saw this book as I was looking up Pointe by Brandy Colbert and it was on the side. I clicked it and next thing I knew it had to be my WoW! Honestly this book looks so good and has the under the covers type of feel. I can't wait to pick this one up!

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon will be released on August 20, 2013 by Bloomsbery USA

Blog Tour: (Review + Book Trailer) Starglass - Phoebe North

StarglassStarglass by Phoebe North 
Date Released: July 23, 2013
Publisher: Simon and Schuster 

Pages: 448 Pages
Format: E-Galley
Source: Via Edelweiss for Blog Tour
Rating:
Series: (Starglass #1)

Goodreads Synopsis: Terra has never known anything but life aboard the Asherah, a city-within-a-spaceship that left Earth five hundred years ago in search of refuge. At sixteen, working a job that doesn't interest her, and living with a grieving father who only notices her when he's yelling, Terra is sure that there has to be more to life than what she's got.

But when she inadvertently witnesses the captain's guard murdering an innocent man, Terra is suddenly thrust into the dark world beneath her ship's idyllic surface. As she's drawn into a secret rebellion determined to restore power to the people, Terra discovers that her choices may determine life or death for the people she cares most about. With mere months to go before landing on the long-promised planet, Terra has to make the decision of a lifetime--one that will determine the fate of her people.  


From Goodreads




I went into reading Starglass with lots of expectations - a kick ass heroine, tons of action, and suspense, but it ended being a book of mixed feeling. Starglass had some great scenes that shined but other fell flat. But definitely give this one a try and it wasn't my book for sure. 


Starglass opens with a great beginning, Terra is living on Asherah, a space ship at it's the only thing she knows is home. Dealing with this life she only knows so much about with a grieving dad, Terra realizes she's the in middle of a secret rebellion. Terra goes through so much in Starglass, I was rooting for her. She had that unique wit that I saw beyond the pages, but when the action and suspense came rolling in I don't think Terra was a good in them. I couldn't see a connection with what was going to to Terra questioning life on the ship. The romance was good, there was a realness there and I could feel it but I wish it had more of a spark and a cohesiveness that could bring the whole book together.

The highlight of Starglass was piecing every little scene and seeing how it would come all together and I liked that about the book. Terra unravels haunting secrets and lies on the ship, I liked seeing that come together despite the fall of action and suspense. The other characters were great like Mara and Rachel and there's was a connection that I got. It may not be my type of book, but definitely give it a try!
