Feature & Follow (1)

Posted on Friday, August 22, 2014 10:20 AM


Feature and Follow is hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read.


This is my first Feature and Follow Post! YAY!!! 

This week’s question is: 


What book/series do you think would make a better TV show than movie?


Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost












This is my all-time favorite series and I would absolutely love to see Cat and Bones come to life, but I would prefer a TV show over a movie because I feel like movies cut too much out and with a TV show there’s more time so it can incorporate so much more than a movie.

Seven Deadly Sins Tag

Posted on 12:30 AM

Seven Deadly Sins


I.was tagged by Kirsty @ Studio Reads to do the Seven Deadly Sins Tag!

Here goes


1.  Greed
 
What is your most inexpensive book?
 
My most recent inexpensive book would be Dissonance by Erika O’Rourke, I actually one it off a giveaway on Goodreads so it was free ;)
 
 
 
2.  Wrath
 
What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
 
 
I can’t think of a specific author that I have a love/hate relationship with off the top of my head *goes to check Goodreads*
 
After checking Goodreads, I’m going to have to go with Kresley Cole.  She’s really the only one who comes close.  I mean I LOVE the Immortals After Dark series but I really don’t care for her YA series, I can’t even remember the name of it now…the first one was Poison Princess, I think?????
 
 
 
3.  Gluttony
 
 
What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?
 
 
I’m going to cheat a little on this one (after all I’m a sinner, right?) and go with a series instead of ONE book.  This is hands down the Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost.  It’s my all-time favorite series and I can’t even tell you how many times I have read through it.
 
 
 
4.  Sloth
 
 
What book have you neglected due to laziness?
 
 
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson *sigh* It just looks so thick…
 
 
5.  Pride
 
 
What book do you talk most about in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
 
 
Ok, this may be the hardest of them all because I’m not a classic or nonfiction reader…AT ALL.  Hell, I didn’t even read the assigned classic books in high school.  So, let’s go with…. The Fault in Our Stars, that counts, right????
 
 
 
6.  Lust
 
 
What attributes do you find attractive in male or female characters?
 
 
Caring and a good sense of humor.  I can get root for any love interest, whether he’s the boy next door, nerd or resident bad boy, as long as he’s caring, has a good sense of humor and doesn’t hold on to things that don’t matter.
 
 
 
7.  Envy
 
 
What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
 
 
Right Now?  That would HAVE TO BE Isla and the Happily Ever After, but it looks like I’m going to end up buying it as a present to myself…
 
 
 
Now who shall I tag?????
 
 
*drumroll please*

Waiting on Wednesday | Very Bad Things by Susan McBride

Posted on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 3:30 AM
 
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
 

My Pick

Very Bad Things by Susan McBride
 
Expected Publication Date: October 14, 2014 by Delacorte Press
 
 
 



Katie never thought she'd be the girl with the popular boyfriend. She also never thought he would cheat on her-but the proof is in the photo that people at their boarding school can't stop talking about. Mark swears he doesn't remember anything. But Rose, the girl in the photo, is missing, and Mark is in big trouble. Because it looks like Rose isn't just gone…she's dead.

Maybe Mark was stupid, but that doesn't mean he's a killer.

Katie needs to find out what really happened, and her digging turns up more than she bargained for, not just about Mark but about someone she loves like a sister: Tessa, her best friend. At Whitney Prep, it's easy to keep secrets…especially the cold-blooded kind.

ARC Book Review | Remember Me by Romily Bernard

Posted on Monday, August 18, 2014 4:30 AM
Remember Me (Find Me, #2)Format: e-ARC
Source: Publisher via Edelweiss
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: September 23, 2014
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In the sequel to Find Me, Wick Tate, sarcastic teen hacker, is back and once again dealing with criminals and corrupt cops…and a brooding new love interest. Will Wick persevere when some secrets refuse to stay hidden?

Wick had thought her troubles were over.

But she should’ve known better.

Not only is she embroiled in a new murder case, which starts with a body with “Remember Me” carved into it and doesn’t stop there, but she also discovers new evidence surrounding her mother’s suicide…which leads her right back to her imprisoned deadbeat dad. And she has to deal with her flirty new hacker friend, Milo, sniffing around—which her boyfriend, Griff, isn’t too happy about.

The pressure might be too much as secrets—including Wick’s own—climb to the surface.

Remember Me is an edge-of-your-seat thrilling read that’ll have readers turning the pages at lightning speed! The paperback of Find Me is on sale simultaneously, and a digital original novella from Romily, featuring Griff, is on sale just a few weeks before!

 

My Thoughts:


Remember Me is the sequel to the amazing thrill ride that was Find Me and as I expected, this second installment had just as much action and mystery as its predecessor, maybe even more so. But, Wicket Tate is not the same girl that she was in Find Me which is to be expected given everything that she goes through in the first book. She is left changed by her traumatic experiences and she is now suffering from PTSD and a whole lot of trust issues, but who wouldn’t be if they had suffered everything that she has in her short life. In the end, it will only make her stronger, she just has to figure that out for herself.

Like I said above, there is a whole lot of action and mystery happening in this book and you don’t get warmed up to it. No, we get thrown in within the first couple of chapters and that’s just the way I like it ;) Wicket is working on something for Carson when she gets a little too involved with a murder case, not to mention there’s new things that are turning up about her mother’s suicide. Wick is in for something that could prove to be more dangerous than she originally thought.

Can I just say that I love how strong Wick is? If I had her upbringing and if I had to endure everything that she and Lily have, I probably still wouldn’t be standing, let alone fighting back. But it seems that everything that happens to her only makes her stronger as a person and hopefully one day she won’t have to keep fighting back, that she won’t have anyone to fight.

If you’ve read the summary for this book then you know that it mentions a “brooding new love interest” and while I was a little apprehensive at first, I actually really enjoyed the ‘brooding new love interest’. Maybe even more than Griff (don’t hate me!). Unfortunately, I just wasn’t too impressed with Griff in this installment. Maybe that will change, maybe it won’t, I’ll just have to wait until I read Trust Me to find out.

Remember Me is an action packed thrill ride that will leave you guessing while hanging on to the edge of your seat the entire time. If you were a fan of the first book then I’m sure you won’t be disappointed with this one because it’s just as engrossing and captivating as the first book.
