About the book:22352840.jpg

Title: Read Me Like A Book

Author: Liz Kessler

Genre & Age Group: Contemporary, romance, LGBTQ, young adult

Goodreads Synopsis:

Ashleigh Walker is in love. You know the feeling – that intense, heart-racing, all-consuming emotion that can only come with first love. It’s enough to stop her worrying about bad grades at college. Enough to distract her from her parents’ marriage troubles. There’s just one thing bothering her . . .

Shouldn’t it be her boyfriend, Dylan, who makes her feel this way – not Miss Murray, her English teacher?

A thought-provoking coming out story from a highly skilled author.

How I Found Out About It: Netgalley

Review: This was one of my first F & F romance reads (and, for that matter, one of my first reads with one of the protagonists being LGBTQ), and I have to tell you that it does not disappoint! It’s basically about a high-school girl named Ashleigh who, on the outside, seems to be leading a normal life. She has good friends who really support her, she gets okay grades, and her family seems pretty nice. At a party, she meets a boy named Dylan, and the two hit it off, so they start dating. Ashleigh thinks she likes him, but then she gets a new English teacher named Miss Murray, and she experiences the feelings of having a real, actual crush for the first time. At first, she has no idea what is making her so nervous around Miss Murray. Besides, she’s just a teacher, and she isn’t supposed to feel this way towards a teacher, right? Her feelings then end up getting out of control and she has to face the fact that she may actually be in love with her. Her brain was saying no, but her heart was saying yes, so her heart obviously shut down the feelings coming from her brain. In addition to this issue, her marks in all her classes (expect for English, obviously  because of Miss Murray) were slipping, her parents weren’t really getting along, and she had a couple of fallouts with her friends. Miss Murray seemed to be the only person whom she felt could make her feel better about all the stress happening in her life. I really enjoyed the writing style in this book. The author seemed to really know how teens of today’s age are like, and she did a great job of portraying that in the story! In all honesty, I didn’t feel like I had too much in common with Ashleigh while reading this, but I can definitely understand how other people could relate to her. She is pretty extroverted, but she still goes through her identity struggles, just like so many other teens!  Despite that, I found her to be really courageous and strong in a difficult time in her life, and she didn’t let any of the stress get to her. Also, once she found out that she was LGBTQ, she was so brave when she decided to admit it! She was really accepting of how she turned out to be, and only wanted to make the best out of it. And Miss Murray just seemed so awesome! She really cared about her students, and she seemed to make life so much better not just for Ashleigh, but for her whole class, and I love teachers who are bubbly and kind like she was! I would recommend this book to any teen who is still trying to find out their identity and place in the world, as this is a very honest look at being LGBTQ, and even if you’re not, I still think many teens will be able to see the world differently once they read this book! Get ready for June 14th, 2016, when this book will be released!

Rating: 4/5 Stars!

New York Times By the Book Tag!

Hi everyone!

I wasn’t tagged to do this, but I have seen many other bloggers like Shannon @Captivated~by~Fantasy and Amy @inkyspells participate in it, so I decided to give it a go!

1. What book is on your nightstand right now?

7664334.jpg

Do books I’ve completed count? If so, I’ve just finished Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson! It was so good, so you should definitely check it out!

2. What is the last truly great book you’ve read?

Sorry guys, but I’m going to have to go with Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour again! Let’s face it, it was amazing!

3. If you could meet any writer, dead or alive, who would it be? And what would you want to know?

I’m honestly not the best with these questions, but if I had to choose, probably Morgan Matson and/or Jenny Han! They are both YA contemporary writers who write amazing books! I think I’d want to know what got them into writing, and ask them for advice on how to become a better writer myself. I’m also aching to know how Morgan Matson comes up with the ideas for her books, because they are just so creative! Also, Matson and Han are good friends, so I think it would work perfectly if I met them both together! *Pictures come from their Goodreads profiles*

3351454.jpg151371.jpg

4. What books might we be surprised to find on your shelf?

I think people might be surprised to find graphic novels on my shelf, like Diary of a Wimpy Kid books by Jeff Kinney, The Babysitters Club by Ann M. Martin, and some of Raina Telegemier’s books! Sometimes I just need a break from deep, serious novels, and just want something light and quick to read! They are also great to read when you’re waiting for another novel, so you’re still reading! (Sorry, I don’t have a picture for this one right now, as my books are organized in rainbow order, so all the graphic novels are separated based on colour. I may update if I re-organize my books, though!)

5. How do you organize your personal library?

I literally just answered this question above, but recently I arranged my books in rainbow order! I just think it makes shelves look way more organized and pretty!

IMG_5753.JPG

6. What book have you always meant to read but haven’t gotten around to yet?

13335037.jpg

If you read my TBR Tag  and my list of popular books I’ve never read, then you know that I’ve never read Divergent by Veronica Roth! I really hope to this summer, though, because it’s sort of embarrassing that I haven’t, and I want to see what all this hype’s about!

7. Disappointing, overrated, just not good: what book did you feel you were supposed to like but didn’t?

742181.jpg

I didn’t dislike this book per se, but I just didn’t love it. I know it’s a classic and all, and most classics are known for being amazing, but I just didn’t feel the love! Check out my review for it here!

8. What stories are you drawn to? Any you steer clear of?

I mostly read YA contemporary since I can relate to the characters and the stories easier, but I’ve recently been opening up to reading more dystopian and fantasy books! I remember having no interest in books like The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins when I was younger, but I finished reading it a couple days ago and it was amazing! So nowadays, I mostly just stay away from the adult books, as I am a bit too young for those and a way more diverse reader now!

9. If you could require the Prime Minister to read one book, what would it be?

17934467.jpg

Um… even though I didn’t like this book very much, I’d probably say The Rule of Three by Eric Walters (review here). This book is about a viral catastrophe that makes all the technology stop working, and it’s all about teamwork and taking control. I think that in case something like this were to happen (I’m not saying it will, I’m saying in the ~0.000001 chance it will, not trying to jinx anything😝), the prime minister should read this book so he could know how the characters dealt with the situation so he could use that information to help us.

10. What do you plan to read next?

22352840.jpg

I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley, and I need to get started! I will after I finish writing this blog post😉(well, now that you’re reading this a day later, I’ve probably started it already and am at least 100 pages through😜)!

I nominate anyone who wants to participate, so go ahead and try it!💖

The Rule of Three Review!

About the book:17934467.jpg

Title: The Rule of Three

Author: Eric Walters

Genre & Age Group: Dystopian, post-apocalyptic, young adult

Goodreads Synopsis:

One shocking afternoon, computers around the globe shut down in a viral catastrophe. At sixteen-year-old Adam Daley’s high school, the problem first seems to be a typical electrical outage, until students discover that cell phones are down, municipal utilities are failing, and a few computer-free cars like Adam’s are the only vehicles that function. Driving home, Adam encounters a storm tide of anger and fear as the region becomes paralyzed. Soon—as resources dwindle, crises mount, and chaos descends—he will see his suburban neighborhood band together for protection. And Adam will understand that having a police captain for a mother and a retired government spy living next door are not just the facts of his life but the keys to his survival, in The Rule of Three by Eric Walters.

How I Found Out About It: I had to read this for lit circles at school!

Review: Okay, I’m just going to go straight to the point here, I didn’t love this book. When I chose to read this book for lit circles out of several different choices, I thought that this sounded interesting, and having read and enjoyed another one of Walters’ books, Safe as Houses, I presumed that this one wouldn’t be too bad. I was dead wrong. This book was SO boring, and it seemed like it dragged on for centuries! To be honest, if I was reading this for pleasure, I probably would’ve abandoned it after reading half of it, but I am a rule follower so I just went through with it. I found it to be super repetitive and slow, and though I really liked the main character Adam, the other characters were just unlikable or two-dimensional. Adam was so brave, strong, and helpful, and just a natural born leader! If it wasn’t for him and Herb, the community would’ve been a wreck since they both knew exactly what to do, although Herb seemed to be keeping a ton of secrets from us. Even though I do know that this book has two sequels (both of which I probably don’t plan on reading😝), I didn’t like that we never got to find out what he was hiding from us! Honestly, if I do pick up the sequel(s), finding out Herb’s mysteries would be the only reason why I would. All the other characters were just dull, and we never got to have a good look of them in this book. There was a tiny smidgen of romance between Adam and Lori, but I didn’t feel like Eric Walters focused on it enough. I believe that if he did, the book would’ve been slightly more captivating. This book just seemed to be full of attacks and protections, and after the umpteenth attack😆, I thought to myself, “Okay, already, that’s enough! When will this get interesting?” My answer for that is that it didn’t. As I said before, the book just dragged on and went into WAY too much detail. Like seriously? Wasting four dear pages telling us how Adam flew his plane? Do you think readers would be amused? Despite all this, I thought that the book had a really good lesson of survival and teamwork. Adam’s community had to work together to survive the crisis of the viral catastrophe, and everyone really started to appreciate each other more by the end of the book, since they had all gone through so much together. For someone looking for a light dystopian read, I’m going to say that this is not the book for you. I would recommend Gone by Michael Grant for you because though it still isn’t the lightest of reads, it still is a little less violent and a bit more interesting. But if you are someone who likes violent, detailed, deep books, I would say give this one a try, and maybe you’ll like it more than me!

Rating: 2.5/5 Stars

Eleanor & Park Review!

About the book:15745753.jpg

Title: Eleanor & Park

Author: Rainbow Rowell

Genre & Age Group: Contemporary, realistic fiction, historical fiction, romance, young adult

Goodreads Synopsis:

Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.

Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.

Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.

Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.

Source: Public library

How I Found Out About It: Goodreads

Review: This is one of the cutest romance reads I’ve ever read! Eleanor and Park were just so perfect for each other, and I was rooting for them the whole time! In many romance books I read, one of the protagonists is pining for somebody they can’t have at the moment because they’re usually with someone else, but in this book, there was none of that, just good, solid romance! This is the first book I’ve read by Rainbow Rowell, and her writing is just amazing, and now I can’t wait to pick up Fangirl! From reading this, I could totally understand why readers have gone CRAZY for her work. To sum up this story, it’s 1986, and Eleanor is new to Park’s school. (Yes, this story doesn’t take place in current times, but there are not really mentions of historical events happening then, so this is still good solid contemporary, it’s just that the technology isn’t as advanced. Nevertheless, it’s good to see that in a contemporary book for a change!) As you could have guessed, Eleanor is having a hard time fitting in with her new peers, and people have been really judging her. She sits beside Park on the bus one day since they both have no one to sit with, and at first, the two don’t really interact, they’re just silent. Then, one day, Park suddenly hands Eleanor one of his comics, and that’s when they start bonding! They start off as friends, but both know that they want something more. Eleanor and Park were both just soooooo sweet, and I agree that they made an amazing couple (I totally ship them😊)! They ignored all the insults coming at them from their disapproving peers and just did what was best for themselves, without conflict, which I loved. Park maybe was a little aggressive, but that was only due to Taekwondo lessons that he had been taking for years, and he only used the karate on the bullies who were tormenting them. I also really enjoyed that there were barely any problems between the couple, and the most conflict there was was about really small things that didn’t really matter in the long run. In many YA romance books, I find that couples tend to have huge fights, break up, and then somehow find their way back to each other by the end of the story, but this book was not like that at all! It was very sweet and light, and it definitely made me really happy! The ending though… it shattered my heart (not going to spoil anything… you should read it if you want to know!). I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a light, nice romance with not too much conflict which isn’t too cliche, because this is THE book!

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars!

Top Ten Thursday #6

Hi everyone! Today I’m going to be listing ten (well, nine🙊) relatable characters in books that I’ve read, so I hope you enjoy! Please note that this is only in order of when I thought of them, not how relatable they are to me. If the book that they are from is reviewed, I will link it!

  1. Penny Porter from the Girl Online series22510983.jpg

She and I have a lot in common! We are both bloggers, and we are both shy and introverted and care a ton about our studies! She made the book so much better, and I couldn’t get enough of her!

2. Emily from Since You’ve Been Gone18189606.jpg

Emily is a very cautious character, as am I, although Emily becomes a bit more daring towards the end! I felt like I could really relate to her struggles; because I know, if any of my best friends went missing like Sloane did, I would be scared and curious as well!

3. Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables3709710.jpg

Anne is very inquisitive and always has something on her mind, just like me! Even though she is very outgoing, unlike me, I still felt like if I was in the story, she would make a good friend for me!

4. Autumn Falls from… you guessed it the, Autumn Falls series!18691023.jpg

Autumn, at the start of the first book, is also shy, again like me, but she really breaks out of that shell by the end! I also think that Bella Thorne portrayed her very realistically as a teen of today’s age (more about that in my review).

5. Leah Hoffman-Ross from My So-Called Family2874911.jpg

Leah is very persistent and curious, like me, because in this story, she goes to learn who her donor siblings are, and when she does find out, she tries really hard to meet up with her, which is totally what I’d do if I was in her shoes!

6. Maya Van Wagenen (the author) from Popular18667753.jpg

I really understood Maya’s struggles that she experienced in this book! I felt like I could really identify with her because our personalities seemed very similar!

7. Audrey Turner from Finding Audrey23305614.jpg

Though I’m not as shy and introverted as Audrey (she could barely even leave her house due to her social anxiety), I still found that I could relate to her in some of her struggles. I often found myself cheering her on throughout the book as her anxiety started to diminish!

8. Jessica Writeman from the Because of Mr. Terupt series7783920.jpg

I found Jessica very relatable as she and I seem to have a lot in common! We are both bookworms and introverts, and can barely ever be seen without a book in our hands! I enjoyed reading about her POV in the books more than the others because of this!

9. Harriet Manners from  the Geek Girl series13621089.jpg

Harriet, again, is an introvert (yes, I know, there are just so many books I pick up with introverted protagonists!😋) and she also really honours her studies, much like me. (I feel like she and Penny Porter from Girl Online [see #1] would become good friends if they met,  since I know that their personalities would definitely mesh.) I really enjoyed reading this because of her relatableness, and hope to read the sequel soon!

Have you read any of these books? If so, did you relate to any of the characters? What characters are you able to relate to the most, and how? Tell me in the comments below!

Sean Griswold’s Head Review!

About the book:8734467.jpg

Title: Sean Griswold’s Head

Author: Lindsey Leavitt

Genre & Age Group: Contemporary, realistic fiction, romance, young adult

Goodreads Synopsis:

According to her guidance counselor, fifteen-year-old Payton Gritas needs a focus object-an item to concentrate her emotions on. It’s supposed to be something inanimate, but Payton decides to use the thing she stares at during class: Sean Griswold’s head. They’ve been linked since third grade (Griswold-Gritas-it’s an alphabetical order thing), but she’s never really known him.

The focus object is intended to help Payton deal with her father’s newly diagnosed multiple sclerosis. And it’s working. With the help of her boy-crazy best friend Jac, Payton starts stalking-er, focusing on-Sean Griswold . . . all of him! He’s cute, he shares her Seinfeld obsession (nobody else gets it!) and he may have a secret or two of his own.

Source: Public library

How I Found Out About It: Goodreads

Review: This was a pretty funny and light read (you can tell by the title😝), and I really liked it! Basically what happens in this story is that a high school girl named Payton’s dad gets diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), and she starts having trouble focusing in class since she is worried about him. She starts to talk to her school counsellor about it, and she gives her the assignment of choosing a focus object to help her concentrate. It could have been a squishy toy, an eraser, anything at all, but after contemplating what her object would be, she notices the head of Sean, the guy whom has sat in front of her in class for years, but doesn’t really know. She is mesmerized by his cool hair, and thus she chooses his head as her focus object! Interesting, right? Because of that, she then starts to develop feelings for him since he’s always in her mind, and that’s where the story picks up! I thought Payton was a quirky and funny character. She was very creative to think out of the box and choose Sean’s head to focus on, and I know that I wouldn’t even come close to thinking of that if I was in her shoes! She was very nice as well, and always treated everyone with respect, even if that time in her life wasn’t necessarily the best. Her friend Jac though… I’m not sure how I feel about her, to be honest. She was very pushy towards Payton and really wanted her and Sean to get together, so she did some not so nice things (you’ll see what they are when you read the book!) that caused a fight between them. She was pretty loyal though, and by doing those things, she only meant the best, even if it didn’t turn out that way. Sean was very adventurous, and when he and Payton did start talking, he really took her out of her comfort zone and got her into biking, out of which she found a great new hobby! I really enjoyed reading Payton’s progress notes that appeared a lot in the book, they tended to be just so hilarious and cute! I would recommend this book to any older tween or teen looking for a spontaneous, light romance read that isn’t too gushy, relatable characters, and a great laugh!

Rating: 4/5 Stars!

TBR Tag!

Hi everyone! I wasn’t tagged for this, but I’ve seen it around on tons of blogs, so I thought it would be fun if I participated in it anyway! This was created by Dana Square and Rachel, so be sure to check out their amazing blogs! So here goes!

  1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I use Goodreads for the most part, but I also have another list of books that I am considering reading in the notes app on my computer!

Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 3.23.03 PM.pngScreen Shot 2016-05-23 at 3.23.34 PM.png

2. Is your TBR mostly print or eBook?

My TBR is mostly print, however I will read eBooks if I cannot get my hands on a print copy  of a book on the list. But to be honest, usually if I can’t find a print copy of a book, I’ll take it off the list🙊.

3. A book that’s been on your TBR for the longest:

318016.jpgVoila, the first book I’ve ever put on my Goodreads TBR that I haven’t read yet! I am hoping to read this soon, maybe this summer!

4. A book you recently added to your TBR:

16248068.jpgI devoured The Selection, so now I REALLY want to complete the series! Check out my review for the first book here!

5. A book in your TBR strictly because of the gorgeous cover:

Honestly, I don’t add books to my TBR based on their covers. If a cover catches my eye, then I will look at the book’s synopsis and see if it interests me. But if I had to choose…

23466626.jpgGorgeous cover + super intriguing synopsis=NEED TO READ THIS NOW😍😍

6. A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading:

645144.jpgIf I ever do read this, I’ll have to buy an eBook because my library doesn’t have this book, nor does my local bookstore. I’m sort of losing interest in it anyway…

7. An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re really excited for:

25988934.jpgI requested this on Netgalley when I first got my account, but unfortunately I was denied, which is a shame because this book looks SO INTERESTING! It releases on July 5th, so I can’t wait to read it then!

8. A book on your TBR that literally everyone’s read but you:

13335037.jpgYes, yes, I know, I need to read this! I hope to get my hands on it first thing this summer to see what all the hype’s about!

9. A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you:

7664334.jpgI absolutely LOVED Morgan Matson’s Second Chance Summer and Since You’ve Been Gone, and I have gotten a couple commenters telling me to read this, and I really want to! In fact, it’s one of my next reads-it’s coming for me at the library!

10. A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read:

17838528.jpgHere’s another one from Morgan Matson! I was going to say Dreamology, but I already mentioned it in another one of the questions! But still, I am in NEED to read this!

11. How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

As of right now, I have 47! I don’t want to have too many on there, I want to get through most of them first!

I know many of you have done this tag before, so I tag anyone who wants to do it!😜

Are any of these books on your TBR? If you’ve read any of these, would you recommend them? Tell me in the comments below!

 

 

 

ARC Review: Welcome To Sortilege Falls!

*I received a digital ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

About the book:29632194.jpg

Title: Welcome To Sortilege Falls

Author: Libby Heily

Genre & Age Group: Dystopian, fantasy, mystery, young adult

Goodreads Synopsis:

Sixteen-year-old Grape Merriweather has just moved to Sortilege Falls and already she knows something isn’t right. A small pack of teenage models, too beautiful for words, holds the town in their sway. The models have no plans on making Grape’s life easy. But no matter how cruel they are to Grape and the other “Normals”, no one can stay angry with them for long.

Grape’s life changes for the better, or so she thinks, when Mandy, the only “nice” model, befriends her. But that’s when the trouble truly begins. Mandy’s friendship places Grape smack in the middle of a medical mystery that has the entire town on edge. One by one, the models fall ill from an incurable disease. Grape quickly realizes that the models’ parents are hiding a secret, even as they watch their children die. To save her only friend, Grape will have to find the truth–and that means putting her life in danger.

How I Found Out About It: Netgalley

Review: What an interesting and captivating read, I really enjoyed the characters and the plot! This book is about a girl named Grape Merriweather (yes, that’s her real name!) whose family moves to a new community called Sortilege Falls. She encounters a group of gorgeous people labeled the Models, since, hence the name, they had experience in modelling and/or acting. They aren’t just any normal models, though! All of a sudden, one model dies of an unknown cause, and then a couple other models follow suit and also get sick, unfortunately one of them including Grape’s celebrity crush, Lance Irving. People knew that a model had caught the disease if they were clutching their stomach in pain, which led to fainting and thus being taken to the emergency room. Even though Grape only really was able to bond with one of the models, Mandy, she and her brother, Brad, were still determined to uncover the mystery of what was causing this illness, and why it only affected the models!  By the end of the story, Grape and Brad knew that knowing this information was worth it, because eventually they had to help save Mandy! This story starts off like a nice contemporary read because of Grape’s move and trying to fit in and get adjusted to the change, but it turns into dystopia/fantasy once the first model gets sick! I felt like I could really sympathize for Grape when she experienced all of those losses over the course of the book. Losing one loved one is hard, but losing a whole bunch at relatively the same time is just another story in itself. Nevertheless, I found that Grape was really strong and coped with everything so well, and didn’t let all that stress and grief get under her plate. Mandy was also just so sweet (well, for the most part) and lent Grape a shoulder to cry on while they both grieved for their lost friends together. The mystery revolving the situation kept me hooked, as I was so curious to know how the illness struck! I would recommend this book to any teen reader looking for a book boasting a little bit of everything: fantasy, dystopia, mystery, high school problems, three-dimensional characters… it’s all here, and ready for you to read on May 31st!

Sean Griswold’s Head by Lindsey Leavitt is such a fluffy, light read just like the Moshling Dipsy, and they both can give you a good laugh!

Two Summers by Aimee Friedman is such an adventurous story which will take you to France and back, just like the Moshling Rocky (except I don’t think he’s from France😏)! Check out my review for it here!

The romance is so cute in Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, the book I just finished reading! Hence, I chose Tiamo, the heart Moshling!

Blindsided by Priscilla Cummings is not very well-known, but I loved it with all my heart! I think Kissy the Moshling represents it perfectly, since she is supposed to be a ghost (representing the unknown) and she is also supposed to be kissing (representing how much I adored the book). Check out my review for it here!

I tag Audrey, Nephele, Icebreaker694, and Louise! Even if you are not one of those four bloggers, feel free to try it if you want! Good luck😉

So that’s it, folks! Do you agree with my choices (due to my reasons, you don’t have to know the moshlings)? What monsters or beasties would you compare books to? Tell me in the comments below!
