Got me so books! :)

I got some money yesterday, so I bought me some books at the grocery store. I got and I was totally excited that they had it . . . was Across the Universe by Beth Revis (I was like jumping for joy there and my mother was looking at me like I was weird :) ), I only have 180 pages or so left. The book so far is really good, and I like how when people review this book they say if they thought that they thought everyone did it once or another. I just would like to say that like 20 or so pages after the person after Amy was found I have convinced myself that it is this one person (of course I won't say who until I do the review, and I will say that the next thing is going to be a spoiler or watever.) The other book I got yesterday was the first bind-up of Vampire Diaries. I just have one more thing to say then I will be done with my little update. I did finish up Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder, a really good and addicting book. Review will be up some time. I guess that is it so bye!!

Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann

Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann

Published February 8, 2011

3 out of 5

Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads:

The community of Cryer's Cross, Montana (population 212) is distraught when high school freshman Tiffany disappears without a trace. Already off-balance due to her OCD, 16-year-old Kendall is freaked out seeing Tiffany's empty desk in the one-room school house, but somehow life goes on ... until Kendall's boyfriend Nico also disappears, and also without a trace. Now the town is in panic. Alone in her depression and with her OCD at an all-time high, Kendall notices something that connects Nico and Tiffany: they both sat at the same desk. She know it's crazy, but Kendall finds herself drawn to the desk, dreaming of Nico and wondering if maybe she, too, will disappear ... and whether that would be so bad. Then she begins recieving graffiti messages on the desk from someone who can only be Nico. Can he possibly be alive somewhere? Where is he? And how can Kendall help him? The only person who believes her is Jacian, the new guy she finds irritating ... and attractive. As Kendall and Jacian grow closer, Kendall digs deeper into Nico's mysterious disappearance only to stumble upon some ugly - and deadly - local history. Kendall is about to find out just how far the townspeople will go to keep their secrets buried.


This book is along with all of the other Lisa McMann books is really a quick read. Her books always have an interesting plot and occasionly characters. This ARC copy of this book was part of a contest that I won. This book had a really fast moving plot and such a weird ending. I like how Kendall, the main character, had OCD, but Lisa McMann writes in third point of view, so you really don't get to see into her head to see just how an OCD person feels. This story was really interesting. I liked how the ending was, but this book only got three out of five stars. It did because it was just an okay book that didn't land into a favorite catergory. I really liked (okay I just liked the uniqueness of the how the people disappeared and why), but I for some reason like books that are that creepy. If you have read it please tell me if you agree on how Nico and Tiffany disappeared and what they did. I definately recommend to read this book (it has only around 230 pages with very large font). It only took 2 hours, and if I was reading this same book that had 200 pages added on or more with the same plot and everything I wouldn't recommend. Yep, this is my review. Thanks for reading this, and have a great day that is full of reading.

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Published October 19, 2010

5 out of 5 stars

Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads;

Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but atleast she got a gurdian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous gurdian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and more 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 Patch 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 everthing - and everyone - she trusts.


This books was crazy. It was soooo good. The ending was like whatttt?!?! I am so ready to get the next book. I had no idea that who was doing everything was the one doing it. That made me like the book so much more than I already did. There was only two things that kind of made me mad that Vee basically only talked about food (I feel like the author decided that is how Vee is all about, but I felt like Vee could have been deeper or something other than a best friend that is curvy and is all about food all the time), and I feel when an author decides to hurt one of it's main character that they should full out and make them like on the edge of the death. (I know that is weird but that is just how it seems like it should be except that it didn't work in Twilight). This book was definately a couple of thumb ups from the last book because of all the tension and questions I had left after and during I read this one. All of you should defiantly check this book and the first one out!

What I got bookwise last week . .

I told you some time like 2 or 3 weeks ago that I won a contest over at acbookjunkies. I recieved that package last Wednesday. It was awesome to get it!! I had a True Blood poster (it's up, Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel, Evernight by Claudia Gray, Cryer's Crossing by Lisa Mcmann, a book plate signed by Kami Garcia and Margret Stohl, Firelight book mark, Firelight little thing that is the size of a postcard that isn't, a Firelight little sticker, postcard signed by the author of 13 to Life, and I almost forgot the first season of Vampire Diaries. Whew, that was a lot. I told you every single thing that I got for that.
I also got something else this week that was totally unexpected. I got Crescendo signed by Becca Fitzpatrick that on the package outside it said media mail and that was it(weird, huh?). I was like I didn't even know or had emails or anything to let me know that I was going to get it. That was really fun to get. Yep, that is what I got last week. Sorry, that there is no pictures of it. I don't have a camera, and pictures that I can take on my phone cannot upload to the computer.

The Ask and The Answer

This Review probally will contain spoilers of the first book in the Chaos Walking Triology (which I have reviewed). YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!! Mwahahahaha . . .

-The Ask and The Answer by Patrick Ness
-Published September 7, 2009
-4 and a half out of 5
-Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads;
Fleeing before a relentless army, Todd has carried a desperatley wounded Viola right into the hands of their worst enemy, Mayor Prentiss. Immediately seperated from Viola and imprisoned, Todd is forced to learn the ways of the Mayor's terrifying new order. But everything is shrouded in secrets. Where is Viola? Is she even alive still alive? And who are the mysterious Answer? And then one day, the bombs begin to explode.
This book started just a few hours after the last one left off, and oh, I tell you that I hated or very much disliked the ending of the last book. It made me really mad. It almost made me mad enough to through the book across the room. I like how the author can unravel a few secrets and make you think that he just gave all of them away, but nope just a page later there is yet something else that he brings up (he makes you need to know everything and then some). The pace in this book was much faster than the last. I will have to say that I was suprised what the Mayor (or as he would like to call himself President) made Davy (Mayor's son if you don't know already lol) and Todd do. I kind of liked to hear Viola's point of view in this book, it added a whole new spectrum of thoughts and ideas). In the book before I really didn't care much for Davy, but in this book I kind of grown to like him. (if you read the triology please tell me i you liked Davy as much as I do and I want to find out about him *I am really dieing to be a spoiler person) I guess that is my review loved this book as much as the first. The only reason I gave it 4 was because I remember not liking something(I can't remeber due to the fact it is late and I am about 200 pages in on "The Monsters of Men".

Sorry for taking forever to get this up!

Wow, today is Saturday! I have been out of school all this week and for some strange reason blogger hasn't been working all week. I guess now I will go on to my two reviews that I have to get up.

-The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

-Published; May 5, 2008

-5 out of 5 stars

-Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads:

Todd Hewitt is the last boy in Prentisstown. But Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in constant, overwhelming, never-ending Noise. There is no privacy. There are no secrets. Or are there? Just one month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd unexpectedly stumbles upon a spot of complete silence. Which is impossible. Prentisstown has been lying to him. And now he's going to run. . . . .

Review: This book has had some many great reviews, and I am just one of those people who looove this book. It was the kind of the book that is great but just takes a while to get used to the way Patrick Ness writes and how the words are spelled. I was captured completely with everything that happened. It had some many secrets and turns that I was like it was my head was spinning. I recommend this book to anyone because it is awesome. I just want to say that I LOVE Todd. (I know, I know I say that I love like every main character that is boy, but hey most of them are just plain awesome and loveable) This is an awesome edition to my bookshelves, and on my top 10 of distopian novels. (I can't spell at all so please forgive my incomptence at it) {Next review is coming up soon!}

A few updates!!

Wow, this past week has been busy. I had tests everday except Monday because we were off, I had to run the mile in gym :( , and it has just been a busy week in general. I did get some more books Friday night from McKays which is this place in Tennessee that sells books, records, Cds, movies, audio books, and video games all is used but most of the time all the stuff is and looks pretty new and unused. My family and I gave away some books for in store credit, and we ended up with $58 credit. Anyways, I got three books Gurdian of the Gate by Michelle Zink, Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, and Incarceon by Catherine Fisher (I believe that is how you spell all of their names and stuff because I am doing this by memory). I finished yesterday the Knife of Never Letting Go it was phenominial. I'll have the review up some time this week. I started to read The Ask and the Answer and the Maze Runner. I have decided that I am going to start a new 100 book challenge, so it can start closer to the new year. I count the Knife of Never Letting go as my first. That is it, happy reading!

I joined netGalley two days ago. I was really excited when I heard that it was all not released books, and I was like maybe The Iron Queen is on there, and it was so I requested to read it. They said yes, so I just did download it on my Nook. I cannot wait to start reading it, and when I do finish I will put a review of it up. Yep, that is it. I just had to tell you.

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
5 out of 5 stars!!!
Published:August 1, 2010
30th book for 100 book challenge
Synopsis (courtesy of Goodreads):
Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey - ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.
Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.
This book I have been wanting to read since I read the first. I have just recently been dieing to read it because of cheezy feets teaser of it and review (sorry if I spelled it wrong, I stink at spelling). I was super excited when I started to read this book. Thank goodness I am on break from school because I couldn't stop reading it, and that resulted in me not going to sleep till 3 in the morning (I still wasn't finished and that made me cranky :) ).This book was not a disappointment at all. I was so glad that it ended like it did. I kind think that Sage could have been an awesome character if he would have lived, I wish that he did live. I absolutely loved Ash, he was the my ideal knight and shining armor (well, second two Jace). This book was just awesome overall; the character were all strong and well-defined (I guess that is how you put it), the plot was really good (it was never slow at all), and um the (couldn't think of anything else. oh well, I thought that it would be nice to add a third thing too, and this is all I could think of) cover of the book WAS FANTABOLOUS. (is that how you spell a mixture of fantastic and fabulous).
That is my review on this excellent book. I just did notice that I use a lot of these things ( ). That is okay though, it is just how I show my extra thoughts. Thanks for reading this. I believe you should expect lots more of reviews to come I have to get to reading to reach my goal of 100 books. :D
