The Lost Code By Kevin Emerson

The Lost Code...

The title sounds awesome doesn't it? I love how it sounds--the Lost Code. Just amazing. The book, unlike the title, isn't as favorable.

The people on the cover is most likely the nerd (Owen) and the swimmer (Lilly or Lily). I like the background. The building is just pretty yet also fitting to the story. 

Okay, this story is being told by a NERD. I swear, this guy is just being a supernerd. Reminds me of "THE BIG BANG THEORY." With awesome powers and hot looks. The main character has cute potential according to our female characters. This book has creativity. 

*loud sigh*

This book may had creativity, but there needs to be a tad more passion in their. Yes, it's original and based on something I can't put a finger on, but it was disappointing.

You see I was hoping for something like computers or high-tech gigs or at least something referring to the future. But NOOO, it has to be about FISH. OR GILLS OR FISH OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT. 

*calming down*

Before Reading: I checked out five books from my local library. I checked this one out because it sounded interesting. I thought is would be sci-fi because it just sounds like it. Out of the five books I could've read first, I choose this one. What a horrible and poor choice, but I didn't know.

During reading: I was reading, flipping through the pages. I skim through some pages because I thought they were useless knowledge. I was bored throughout the book. I am not the type to abandon books unless they are really, really bad, but I was tempted many times to abandon this book. I choose not to. 

After reading: After reading this book, I thought it was okay, but then the author could had picked up the pace on this book. But some major things that happen in the book ticked me off.

Argument 1: The author should have explain the terms more clearly and precisely. I was often confused, which brings us to my second argument.

Argument 2: The writing could had done a little more editing. The writing needs to be smoother. As smooth as a plane in geometry. 

Argument 3: The book was long. And boring. The twists were unsatisfying and dry.     

Argument 4: The romance was way too dry. It was boring and boring. I couldn't find the fire between Owen and Lilly. No chemistry or fire under the water. (HA HA)

Argument 5: The characters were too stupid. Owen shouldn't trust that boy who changed sides. I think there is a possibility that a traitor is among them, but I can't be sure.

Argument 6: The writing needs more vocabulary.

I can think of more arguments but I think I'll stop there.

This book is a two out of five. 

As Dead As It Gets By Katie Alender Review

As Dead As It Gets...

Well, the truth is I'm just hoping this series would end. I mean, the first book was fine on its own. There was no need to get the second and third books.

Creepy cover, right? I know it. The second book was even creepier. All theses creepy covers in this series. *Cold Shivering* *Ghost looking over your shoulder*

In my opinion, the main character has gone officially cuckoo. She is CRAZY! Yet she isn't. Too many of the secondary characters, she is. To us readers, she isn't.

Despite all the evil things other classmates had given her, she is strong enough to be happy despite them. I really like her spirit. Her strength. Her bravery to face evil souls and ghost. She is an amazing character and is beautifully written. I don't care what you guys say, but this is what I say. So What?

The author, Katie Alender, has done a wonderful job writing the first, second, and third books. I hope this isn't the last one. According to some of my fellow readers, this is the last book. This makes this book the last book in the trilogy. Katie Alender, I wouldn't mind if you write and publish more books. I would totally and absolutely LOVE YOU!

The twists and turns were to DIE for. Katie Alender had done a great and wonderful job to make this book as spunky as the previous two. Ms. Alender made the main character's world seem real. The behaviors of the FBI agents and her classmates were believable. The author has repeatedly pointed out the main character's flaw, which reminded me how flawed and beautiful this character is. She is just a good writer and should be on the charts.

The love triangle was cute and adorable. I just squealed whenever Carter and that other guy (Jared) glared at each other. The heat between those two guys were just like "WHOA!" and "OMG! DID THAT JUST HAPPEN?"

As promised, Lexi's friends and acquaintances disappeared mysteriously. Lexi is convicted as the murderer and strong evidence is being held against her. She later goes to that evil place. (The same place where her sister has gone.)

All the characters were good and had good characterization.

Lexi has changed so much. I could barely recognize her as the girl before. The girl before was scared of ghost. Now she is ready to do anything for her sister and kill/destroy ghost.

1. Jared was indirectly behind the murders. He is later killed by Lexi.
2. Carter wins the love triangle.
3. Lexi gets a happy ending.
4. Lots of people die.
5. People go crazy.

Because of how great this book is, it deserves a four out of five. That is pretty high rating from me.



Post will not be posted until after the CST are over. I have four days of CST and I really need to study (cause I forgot everything.)

Reviews won't be written until after the CST. Sorry.

Life Eternal By Yvonne Woon Review

Off-Topic: I always thought this author's last name was Wood until I looked it up. Google asked me if I was looking for Woon, not Wood. Whoops! Epic Fail!

Ahh! Very nice cover. Very beautiful. I love the blue, very much indeed. (It is me or the cover kind of corresponds to the main character's last name--winters?) 

In this sequel to Dead Beautiful, Rene Winters needs to find the secret that has been found by the Nine Sisters. To save Dante and herself, the secret may be the key to finding true happiness. Life Eternal is the fight between the undeads (no souls) and the Monitors on Rene's side. 

After nine days of being soulless, Rene is expected to turn into one of them. *Ahem* (Undead Children) Instead, her soul was returned by Dante and she continues living as a human for another day. Interestingly enough, part of her soul is in Dante. She receives these ominous flashes before the deaths of many Monitors. 

For example: Professor LaBardge dies.

Rene freaks out. She gets these odd visions and starts to pass out in classes. BTW, she switched schools because the previous school was determined too dangerous by her grandfather. So she is at this new school, rumors are flying everywhere about her and her "immortality." She isn't, but her fellow classmates think so.

At this new school, Rene is the best Monitor. After her, in second place, is this evil bitch who is determine to catch Rene doing something bad. The evil bitch is kind of like Draco Malfory. Which is true, other than the genders. Draco Malfoy and the Bitch with a capital B are both smart, intelligent, and determined to catch Harry (Rene) doing some mischief to their endless disappointment. 

Unlike the first book, there isn't much romance. Instead there is this oracle and some dead people and some odd dreams. Yes, Rene has gone officially paranoid. (Not exactly, though. I'm just exaggerating) 

This book goes on and on about the search for Life Eternal and the search for the Ninth Sister. She goes to play Scavenger's Hunt like Dante. *Yawn*


1. Mike dies.
2. They find the chest.
3. Dante still love her.
4. Mike loves her.
5. There's trouble in paradise, but it's resolved.
6. This books sounds like Twilight. (Que to Puke)
7. More people die.
8. Cliffhanger in the end.

This book deserves a three out of five for its similarities to Twilight. 

Private Series By Kate Brian

Private Series By Kate Brian

Bitchy girls, yep. (Just look at the middle girl on the cover. Bitchy expression on that bitch's face.)
Rich girls, yeah.
Beautiful girl, definitively.
Manipulative, totally.
Death, every book I believe.
Joy, for a short amount of time.
Happy Ending, sort of.
One thing for sure: Lots of drama, kicked asses, and fights.

I hate this series! 

My advice is this: DON'T READ IT!!!!!!

1. plot holes
2. stupidity of the main character
3. silly spoil brats
4. pouty girls
5. not so hot guys
6. ugly sides of people
7. hatred of the main character
8. odd and weird twist

I totally and absolutely agreed with the cat. WHY???

The goal of this post is to prevent YOU from reading this shit.

Infamous By Sherrilyn Kenyon Review

This book is the third one, right? Yep, I checked and double checked. It's the third one. And this is the first book I've read in this series. Whoops! Oh, well. Despite the fact I didn't read the previous two books, I managed to understand what was happening. (For once!)

I'm intrigued by the cover. Interesting shade of green. I love the symbol in the center of the cover. There are some small markings on the edge of the circle. The "F" of infamous is pretty cool. And the guy! He's dark like a demon. Ooo! *Shivering* Truth is Nick is a DEMON, so SHUT YOUR FACE AND LISTEN UP, YOU DISRESPECTFUL PEOPLE!!!!

This will be a short review. 

Nick is a boy, who is unaware of how powerful he truly is. He is currently dating his girlfriend, what's-her-name. 

This book has great morals. I enjoyed the insight of Nick. I enjoyed the everchanging POVs. I don't mind different POVs. (Unlike some people)

Anyway, I think this was a great book to read.

Four out of five for this book.

The Fault In Our Stars By John Green

This bittersweet romance book is the bestselling book on the book list. It's been up there for weeks while I have been putting it off because I heard it was bittersweet. (The truth is I put if off for about two years) As promised by fellow readers, this book is indeed bittersweet. It's sad yet also not surprising. The romance is good and there are little plot holes. John Green has written a beautiful story that is perhaps his masterpiece. It's the best of all his books so far. Let's hope for more books like The Fault In Our Stars.

When I finished this book, I cried. I cried. I spent the night up reading this book and when I was done, I cried because it was truly that sad. When you read, you'll understand. And I won't be kidding when I say it's sad. Heartbreaking. Heartshattering. And beautiful.

Hazel, the main character, is depressed. She has incredible insight of the world for a sixteen or seventeen years old. She's makes me look at the world and people in different ways. I found her narration pleasant and funny. The language/profanity was there but there was not much of it. It's small such as "bastard" and some other ones I can't remember. She's a good character and I was not bored with the story.

Many terms of John Green were fictional. For example, the type of cancer one character has does not exist. It was purely fictional and made up by John Green. This did not bother me, despite my dislike of fictional illnesses or cancers. I prefer for books like these to stick to medical terms so I can learn a little about the world of cancer patients.

The romance between Gus and Hazel was bittersweet. It was beautiful to put it is simple terms. I love it. The sweetness of it was clearly seen by readers. The romance was hilarious. This relationship starts off as "just friends" to "boyfriend and girlfriend" to "soulmates." Seeing these two react with each other was just a pleasure of reading this book.

Hazel does not have many friends. As she talks with Issac and Gus, she starts becoming social. She has been diagnosed with cancer and requires an air tank to breathe. Yes, there were some flaws with Hazel, but these flaws were beautiful and amazing.

Gus has one leg and used to play basketball. He is described as handsome and hot. He seems to be a delightful young boy who was diagnosed with cancer like Hazel. Hazel and Gus have some noticeable and common traits. For one, they both have the same curiosity. Gus and Hazel has that kind of relationship that was quick yet also deep. The hearts of these characters were strong and they were a perfect fit when they came together as one.

Issac is not a possible suspect in the love triangle. (This book isn't a love triangle, thankfully) He's blind. He went under surgery on his eye. He lost his eyes to cancer in the eyes. (Not sure what type of cancer is in the eyes, but oh well) He is heartbroken over a girl named Monica and was later unbroken. (Mended) He is one bright character in this book.

For a huge chunk of the book, Hazel and Gus are in Amsterdam to find an author named Peter. Peter wrote a book which ended like this: I...
Yep, some crappy author.

-Gus is diagnosed with cancer again. This time the cancer has spread to his lung, stomach, almost everything. Actually, I believe it's everything and it was too late to save him.
-Issac and Gus goes to egg Monica's car.
-Hazel and Gus do it.
-Hazel and Gus goes to Amsterdam.
-Gus dies.
-Gus leaves a letter to Peter, which is about the book.

This book deserves a five out of five.

Cold Fury By T.M. Goeglein Review

Cold Fury...

The book couldn't sound more awesome right? 

Ohhh, yeah. The girl is a boss. Briefcase, check. Gadgets, check. And a furious expression on her face, check. Very nice cover. Too bad, it didn't show her freaky blue eyes.

What's the book about?
Jason Bourne meets The Sopranos in this breathtaking adventure
 Sara Jane Rispoli is a normal sixteen-year-old coping with school and a budding romance--until her parents and brother are kidnapped and she discovers her family is deeply embedded in the Chicago Outfit (aka the mob).
Now on the run from a masked assassin, rogue cops and her turncoat uncle, Sara Jane is chased and attacked at every turn, fighting back with cold fury as she searches for her family. It's a quest that takes her through concealed doors and forgotten speakeasies--a city hiding in plain sight. Though armed with a .45 and 96K in cash, an old tattered notebook might be her best defense--hidden in its pages the secret to "ultimate power." It's why she's being pursued, why her family was taken, and could be the key to saving all of their lives.
Action packed, with fresh, cinematic writing, Cold Fury is a riveting and imaginative adventure readers will devour. 
 Hmm... The book's a little like Jason Bourne but with superpowers and all that good stuff. Missing family, check. Rogue cops, check. Crazy family, check. Masked assassin, check. Weapons and cash, check. Sara Jane, get ready for the rush of your life. 

Sara Jane is this innocent little girl who doesn't realize that she hold the secret of her family. She has the power--Cold Fury. 

The plot was excellent. The reactions of other characters when Sara Jane did something was understandable and realistic. There was little to no plot holes. The writing was good, and had a few errors, which I dismissed. I thought there were some randomness, which I hope will be cleared up in the second book.

After reading about the first 5 chapters, I thought this book would be like All these thing I've Done. Then I realized, it was more than that. There was this underlining supernatural thing going on. First it was all mob, and then you have a plot thrown in, seemingly random. 

So it was normal family, then kidnapped family. Then after reading the journal or notebook or whatever you want to call it, it turns into supernatural family with recessive genes that control the power. And then there were these door things.

Random, right? 

I asked the book questions, and some questions were answered, others were not. I decided that this was one of those "buckle in your seat belts and--no do not raise your hands--enjoy the ride, readers." (Evil laughter is expected)

Cold Fury--as far as I can tell--is this power to "see" other people's fear. It also gives you the power to intimate other people, just by looking. Sara Jane has that power. Her dad has Cold Fury. 

Sara Jane is the first female in the family to have Cold Fury. Her brother, Lou, is expected to have it, but doesn't. 

She runs from assassins and people who wants her power. She does it all while controlling the mob. (Sixteen year old controlling the mob is not exactly my vision of the mob, but oh well). And plus, she's badass.

Not bad girl way. Badass way like this:

Yep! Like Sarah Conner. Perfect, except the gun isn't like that. But other than that the picture is perfect!

Anyone, this plot was fast while being excellent. (I have no idea how it's like that, but to me it is) Fast and excellent mixed in well.

This book is a three out of five.

We'll Always Have Summer By Jenny Han Review

It was a great and wonderful pleasure to journey with Belly as she tries to find the Mr. Right. This book, We'll Always Have Summer, is the last book in the Summer Trilogy by Jenny Han.
Let's start off with a quote:
"It's been two years since Conrad told Belly to go with Jeremiah. She and Jeremiah have been inseparable ever since, even attending the same college-- only, their relationship hasn't exactly been the happily ever after Belly had hoped it would be. And when Jeremiah makes the worst mistake a boy can make, Belly is forced to question what she thought was true love. Does she really have a future with Jeremiah? Has she ever gotten over Conrad? It's time for Belly to decide, once and for all, who has her heart forever."
Let me say this: I have always been and always will be rooting for Conrad.

So Jeremiah's fans, please exit stage left.
Or you can stay and endure the torture of a Conrad fan.

The quote was so wrong. Yes, she did become Mrs. Fisher. Yes, she did get engaged to Jeremiah. No, one of the boy's heart wasn't really that broken. I say that the quote was just exaggerating. She did break the heart a little bit, but the relationship didn't work out.

Plot: I always thought that Jenny Han's writing is outstanding. It still is. To me, this book didn't have enough twist and turns. It needed a tiny little more action, please. (Now the song by Elvis Presley "A little more action" is stuck in my head).

I love how the POVs of the book switch between Conrad and Belly. Seriously, I really like to know what is going on in that boy's head.

Anyway, the characters were good. Conrad matured a bit more. Jeremiah remained that sweet boy from Belly's childhood. Conrad is trying to move on. Jeremiah is dating Belly. Belly is just confused by the triangle. (Aren't the girls in the love triangle always confused?) She is split between Jeremiah and Conrad. She doesn't know which one is right.

As the plot goes on, it becomes apparent on who is the better boy. One brother can cook while the other one do takeouts. One brother can fix stuff and the other one is clueless. One brother can be on time for everything and the other? Well, not really on time for everything. Basically, these two brothers, Conrad and Jeremiah, are two sides of the same coin.

Jeremiah proposes to Belly and Belly accepts. Things get ugly really fast. For example: Belly's mother and her got into this huge argument. Conrad is not talking to Belly. Conrad and Jeremiah aren't really brothers anymore. They are more like archenemies. Belly gets into an argument with Jeremiah. Conrad goes crazy. Jeremiah goes nuts. The friends of Belly are happy for her.


Belly: Sweet girl. I love her character and personality. But sometimes she needs to do the right thing. For example: She needs to let that boy go. She has to stop looking at the other one. Her wants are probably why the relationship with Jeremiah went down. Gosh, Belly! You have to make a big deal out of everything. Seriously! Bridezilla! OMG!

Jeremiah: He's till immature. Belly is really pissed at him for sleeping with this other girl. But hello!!! Jeremiah and Belly broke up when he slept with that other girl. Jeremiah is a sweet boy. He's really nice, but you'll see his ugly side, too.

Conrad: The other love interest. Go Conrad! Sorry, fangirl moment. Conrad... He is just good, obviously flawed, but a good character. I love how he gets jealous. I enjoy those rare moments when you get to see what in the world is going on in that boy's head.


  • It was all along Conrad. Conrad and Belly forever. Infinite, as it says on the final or second to final page. 
  • Jeremiah moves on.
  • Conrad is the brother who is more mature and can cook and can fix stuff and is on time for everything. He's always there for Belly unlike Jeremiah.
  • Conrad confesses his love for Belly!
  • Belly was 23 or 24 when they marry.
  • Belly's mom was kind of playing matchmaker.
  • Jeremiah is sooooo immature. 
End Spoiler

This book has such a sweet ending. Rating is...ummm...
Rating is four out of five. 

Bye Summer trilogy! You'll be infinite in my heart. <3 Farewell old friend.

Seconds Away By Harlan Coben

The cover is just fascinating! It makes you wonder what is going to happen in the book. Does it have something to do with fire?

This is the second book in the series. The series: "Mickey Bolitar"

Like most of the books I had recently read, this book could have a little more editing. Yes, there are some typos.

After reading this book, I anticipate the next one(only because I like Mickey). O.o I just need the next book and the next and the next. 

At the end of the book, there is a cliffhanger (as usual, all authors love cliffhangers and driving us crazy, perhaps at the same time).

This book has a slowwwww beginning. I was considering, many times, to skip these damn pages, but I felt that I would miss some key points/miss out a good part. 

Mickey's humor is considered average. It's not really funny but not dull enough to be thought as dull.

I would not recommend reading this book. Shelter, the first book in the series, was more adventure-packing than this dull, boring, new book.

To me, there was barely any action, any good stuff, or any romance(not that I didn't expect any).

Anyway, I'm so miserable writing this review on this book that I docked 1 star from the rating.

Mr. Coben, your second book is a two out of five. Not very impressive material, on your standards.

Gates of Paradise By Melissa De La Cruz Review

Before I say anything about this book's contents, I would like to say what a great pleasure it was to read and journey with the characters in this series. It is a pity that this is the last of the series. I will always hope for a little more of these characters like Jack Force, Mimi Force, Martin Kingsley, and Oliver something.

The Gates of Paradise is one of those books with a happy ending. Truthfully it wasn't like The Hunger Games or Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, where everyone dies or anything like that. It was sweet, quick, and also creepy. If you are looking for a happy book, this is it.

Gates of Paradise Cover
What an amazing cover! Don't you agree? I like the flower. It is so beautiful in the cover. I like the building at the bottom of the cover, too.

The plot was good. I like the twist and turns with Kingsley and Mimi's relationship. Bliss and Lawson are on the relationship stage "It's complicated." Schuyler and Jack are on the relationship stage "Hopefully we will get back together, but it just doesn't seem possible until the war ends." Oliver and Schuyler seem to be on the page "best friends." And that is all worth mentioning without telling you spoilers!

The downfall of this book was that everything felt to be rushed. There were many points in the book where I just want to say, "Slow down. Calm. You need Starbucks, Ms. De La Cruz. Lots of coffee." Battle scenes--I want more scenes of the Fallen fighting against the Traitors. She skipped over most of the scenes. Not FAIR! I want more of the fighting. Give me a visual of it. 

Ahhhhh. The gooey part of the book. Let's just say there is blood, betrayal, and more blood. There should be more blood, after all they are vampyres. And there are some lovemaking scenes, but they aren't that big of a deal. It's more of a mention than a vivid description. (Thank Heavens!) 

To me, the strongest writing in the book is the Mimi scenes. I mean, I love Mimi, but I'm not trying to be biased or anything. I truly believe Mimi was the strongest character in the book. Bliss would be second. And Schuyler the last. 

Schuyler: To me, she was just running around the globe, trying to find the answer to the problem. Her biggest problem: "Only the Blood of Her Father Can You Now." Schuyler is questioning who is her father. She found her other sister. She found her father's family. But who is the father in that quote? From that shy girl we met in the beginning of the series to this girl right now, we see the changes of Schuyler Van Alen. 

Mimi: Mimi is the BEST CHARACTER in this series. She is just amazing and stunning. Her character went a full 180 degrees. She was the total opposite of what she started out with. Her problem: Lucifer and her oath to him (Remember this?).

Bliss: I like Bliss. She is awesome. However she is weak in this book, she's no longer a vampyre. She is a human now. Gone for a year, Bliss returns to find the world the same yet different. She travels with the Hellhounds to free the rest of them. 

Jack: Jack, at first, was the one who wanted to go to the Dark Side, while being Light. Jack is an excellent actor, and that is all I'm going to say. 

Oliver: He may be moving on. Poor Ollie. He deserves another love. He just had one ripped from him. He is just healed of a broken heart, remember?

(Don't say I didn't warn you!)


  • Jack dies. He is killed by that lapdog of Lucifer. Schuyler let him die, to save the Blue Bloods. In the end, he comes back to life. AFTER THREE FREAKING YEARS!!!
  • Oliver becomes Regent. A vampyre. His familiar is Schuyler's sister, Finn!
  • Mimi and Kingsley goes to hell! They bond. Mimi is the new Queen of Hell. It's their choice to go there.
  • Most Blue Bloods went to Paradise.
  • Bliss runs with the wolves. She becomes one.

*Slobs* This is the final story to this series. It is a pleasure adventuring with out. Farewell, old friend. I will never forget you.

My rating is four out of five. Farewell.

Clockwork Princess By Cassandra Clare Review

Clockwork Princess is so OMG! I cried so much when I finished it. It was Niagara Falls! Figuratively, of course. 
Ahh! The cover is so beautiful. I love the background and the light. The grayish background goes nicely with the red-orange light.

Cassandra Clare's writing is usually flawless. This book however could have been edited a little further. Really, after this many books you published, you should be able to edit it a little more. Just a few more times and maybe I will be satisfied. 

The plot is just amazing. I love the twist and turns. I love the surprises here and there. I have to admit, some surprises were shocking even though I heard of some spoilers before I had read this book. 

The plot is perfectly paced, with excellent climaxes and solutions. Betrayal, love, war, blood, and stupidity were all fitted together like puzzle pieces. 

Humor is here. You'll laugh a little, cry a little, and then wipe the tears away. This book is a masterpiece, better actually (in my opinion) than any other books Ms. Clare has ever written. 

Tessa: Her usual self. She is still quoting books. (Miss. Corrector, I thought) She struggles to survive, yet also find the right guy. (Will or Jem) She is intelligent and attractive in character. If you love reading books, I think this character is perhaps the best one you can understand.

Will: I love Will. His humor. His tactics. His intelligence. You will love his poetry, no matter how horrible they are. His sarcasm is so endearing and cute. He truly loves his sister and brother and his love ones. I think his sarcasm and humor are the highlights in this book. I love the romance and chemistry between Tessa and him. It's shocking to realized that Jem doesn't know about him and Tessa.

Jem: Jem and Tessa are engaged in the beginning of the book. This status will change, unfortunately. (I would not reveal which boy I am rooting for) Jem's kindness shines in this book. I love the love he has for Will, his parabatai. Jem is kind and quiet. He is well loved by the Shadowhunters and servants at the London Institute. He is also well respected.

Axel: The evil villian who cunning outwitted everyone including Will, Tessa, Jem, and basically every Shadowhunter. 

Consul Wayland: The only reason I put him here is because I want to express how much I hate this guy. I would flipped him off. And I don't like flipping people off.

Spoilers: Jem becomes a Silent Brother. (The one who insists on saving the Herondale line). Will proposes to Tessa. Tessa marries Will. They have kids. Will dies. Jem finds the cure after 133 years and in other words he found the cure in 2008. Jem and Tessa reunite. It is said they travel the world with each other.

The book deserves a five out of five. However, I think it could have done a little more editing so it deserves a four out of five.

7. Shades of Earth by Beth Revis
Interesting quote:
"Amy and Elder have finally left the oppressive walls of the spaceshipGodspeed behind. They're ready to start life afresh--to build a home--on Centauri-Earth, the planet that Amy has traveled 25 trillion miles across the universe to experience.

But this new Earth isn't the paradise Amy had been hoping for. There are giant pterodactyl-like birds, purple flowers with mind-numbing toxins, and mysterious, unexplained ruins that hold more secrets than their stone walls first let on. The biggest secret of all? Godspeed's former passengers aren't alone on this planet. And if they're going to stay, they'll have to fight.

Amy and Elder must race to discover who--or what--else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together. They will have to look inward to the very core of what makes them human on this, their most harrowing journey yet. Because if the colony collapses? Then everything they have sacrificed--friends, family, life on Earth--will have been for nothing.

It has a cover! This is an amazing day!

But it brings back bad memories...

Percy and Annabeth fell down.

And Rick Riordan is like:

AHHH! I need the book! So this is what I'll do with Captain America:
And get chased by security. 

Fall 2013 can't come soon enough! Ahh! What does it have to be fall?
This is your worst nightmare!

Endlessly By Kiersten White

Cover is so beautiful. I love the purple!

Let's start with the plot. The plot sucks. (Sorry, Ms. White) I felt that her quests were too easily solved/completed. Seriously, the conflicts weren't much  of a conflict. To me, they seem to be annoying flies. I don't know how this book is bestsellers.

I tried really hard to like this one. I liked the previous two books--but this one? Ugh! It was dreadful. It wasn't as bad as Private Series by Kate Brian. I couldn't hook into it. The last two books had a spark. Where is the spark in this book?

This book is my personal torture device. One of the reasons why I read this book was because I wanted to know the ending of this trilogy so badly. 


Evie-She annoyed me so much that I considered ripping the book apart. (The only thing that stopped me was that it was a library book.) I don't recall her being this annoying. You know those dumb blonde jokes? Evie seem to somehow be even blonder. Evie is brave, only when her love ones are involve. She is sympathetic to the humans in the Dark Queen's Realm. 

Lend-hot as usual. It annoys me on how hot boys are in the book worlds, but that not here. Guys these days? Pff! I would stick my nose in books. Guys these days are so immature. Anyway, Lend is amazing. (Why can't you be my boyfriend?)  He is a perfect gentleman. I love how he sacrifice himself for someone he loves. 

Reth-the faery bad boy, right? He is still a bad boy. In my opinion, the way he deals with his love for Evie is just stupid. (When she finds someone she loves with all her heart, you move on, Reth!) Reth is homesick in this book. And he is probably the person--er feary--who know Evie the best. 

Jack-Jack is amazing. His charming, silly, young-boy attitude takes the seriousness down a notch. He was the other reason I kept on reading this book. 

Spoilers Ahead!

David and Raquel- Interesting match. Double date with Evie and Lend coming right up, although I hope not. That's all I could say. 

Vivan-Yay. She wakes up. I was praying throughout the end of the book that she wouldn't go all psycho. She almost did. She later goes to the Feary World to seal the Gate/Portal. 

Arianna-I was so sad to see her leave the human world. She was a good friend to Evie.

To my view, this book deserves a 1 out of 5. But I liked the ending so I will give it a 2 out of 5. And that is me being nice. 

This review is also on Goodreads.

If you think my review is crappy, please give me some pointers. I would love to have some advice. 


The Iron King By Julie Kagawa Review

The Iron King. 

Meghan, Ash, and Puck. They are the greatest trios of heroes I have ever seen. 

The first book of the Iron Fey is The Iron King. 
"Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart."
You can find it here at here. 


Meg-She is naive. She doesn't know how to act in a backstabbing environment. She doesn't realize many dangers till later. She is smart and loyal to her closest friends. 

Ethan-her poor little brother. He doesn't make much of an appearance but he was the one who sparked the flame. 

Puck-the prankster. He is good. Puck is one of those characters who takes the seriousness down a notch. 

Ash-the hot Winter Prince. Swooon!!! I am in love with him. He has an icy shell around him. His icy past may block his heart, but Meghan will melt it away. 

the cat-the cat is my favorite character. he is smart and knowledgeable of the fey world. it is sad to also admit that he is an ass.

this book is perfectly paced. I enjoyed it greatly. I must have reread many thousand times. It is just that good.

5 out of 5. 

Possession By Elana Johnson Review



Possession was difficult to understand at first. There are a few questionable things. For example: What is an e-comm? 

Vi- She's a badass. She is tough. She is not a good girl. She breaks rules. She doesn't listen to anyone. She misses her dead sister. She loves her dad. She dislikes her mother. She is powerful. I just love her. She is smart, and has a beautiful personality. I love her when she is frustrated. 

Jag-O.o Badass coming right through. He keeps things from Vi. It was obvious that he had a damaged past. Let's rephrase that-- He's a damaged soul. He's snarky and sarcastic sometimes. He is a wonderful character. He is willing to sacrifice his freedom for what he believes in. 

Zenn-I don't like. He is such a zombie boy. I found his creepy yet also smart. He reminds me of Tobias from the Divergent Trilogy.

Her dad-creeper. disgusting. despicable. I didn't like him, but that was what made him a good villian of this series. 

The writing was smooth and semieasy to understand. I would recommend it to any teenagers. 

I give this book a 3.5 out of 5.

Cress By Marissa Meyer

I can't wait for the day when Prince Kai wakes up and realize that Cinder is Princess Selene.


Wolf and Scarlet and the clown(Captain Thorne) better be in this book.

The date is so FAR AWAY



Scarlet By Marissa Meyer Review

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer is one of the most exciting, thrilling book I've ever read. There was some flaws, yes; but i overlook them because of how purely awesome this book it.

Scarlet- one of those badass heroine who is a "attack now, ask questions later" type of persons. She carries a gun! She is an alpha. She is brave. She is loyal to the people she loves. Wolf, you don't count until later in the book. Maybe the last 2 chapters? She loves her Grandmother dearly. She was willing to listen to someone (Wolf) who might be the enemy.

"Biting her lip, she reached forward, pulling his fingers away from the can. She found that the label had been shredded beneath his mindless fidgeting, 'Wolf, are you asking me to be... your alpha female?'
He hesitated...
'Alpha female.' he murmured. 'I sort of like that.'"

Wolf- ohhh! He is hot. Yeah, I know you might be rolling your eyes at this, but truly is he. It helps if you read "The Queen's Army" although it is not required. Wolf is The Alpha Wolf. He is an animal and a beast. Even though others may seem to see him as an vicious animal, he cares about Scarlet. It is obvious that he care if not love Scarlet.

"...with hair stuck out every direction in messy clumps...His eyes were unnaturally green..."

Cinder- ahhh! Cinder is back. Her usual self has appeared. I love Cinder. I love how her character changes. I feel like she was unsure about her motives until the very end. I love her determination.

Kai- Poor Kai! All that pressure from those (attacks) and other nations. Don't forget about that Lunatic Queen Bitch. In the end, I wanted to murder Kai. He PROPOSED to the EVIL QUEEN. Kai, I'm so disappointed in you. That was the one thing Cinder told you to not do.

Thorne- I mean, Captain Thorne. I love his attitude. He lights up a dark mood. All those little comments are just hilarious. He is a jester. He is just amazing. I love his character. I love his actions. This is one character I look forward to seeing in the next book.

And those are the 5 major characters.
