Guys another month is coming to an end. It seems like just yesterday it was the end of February. This year is just slipping away. But I guess we can get rid of the snow and winter because you know I'm just so done with it all. Winter has lasted way to long this year, time for some Spring!
March had a lot of ups and downs but I made it through. I can't believe I'm into my last week of the semester. Where did it go?
I think I should turn it over to my lovely reviews that you guys say you love. This one is all books. I must be a loser because I thought I at least watched some movie and I did not. I watch a lot of tv shows. Currently I'm watching season 4 of the O.C (OMG love that show!), season 7 of One Tree Hill (I'm watching the series over again), season 2 of The Following, which I liked season 1 better, season like 13 of Degrassi, I'm so behind though :p, season 10 I believe it is of Grey's Anatomy (are they at season 10? haha), season 2 of Motive (SO good), and I can't wait for seasin 2 of Orphan Black to come back MY FAVOURITE SHOW haha.
OKAY. I'm moving on now.
Between the Lines by: Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer: What happens when a fairy tale starts talking to you? Everyone around you thinks you’re crazy. This is what happens to Delilah when she reads the story she’s read a million times. It’s a magical read of what goes on inside a book when no one is reading it, as well when a character wants to get out of the story. It’s up to Delilah to save the Prince and set him free. The writing entrapped the reader with the words that were written. It’s a beautiful love story between a prince and a girl. It’s completely creative the novel which keeps you reading more. Definitely worth checking out if you love reading a lot!
Identical by: Ellen Hopkins: Not one of Hopkins best pieces of work, but it does take you for a good loop right at the end. It’s the story of a pair of twins, Raeanna and Kaeleigh, who live their life in fear. Their fear is of their father who does bad things. Ever since an accident came and turned the family upside down the girls have lived in fear. It’s a slow novel to get into. The reader is left to wonder what is the point of this novel, it almost feels like it’s going nowhere until the last 50 pages which is really daring to do since you could lose readers that way. But if you continue to the end it’s worth it, you just have to wait a long while for it to get really good.
Fall of Night by: Rachel Caine: The 14th novel in the Morganville Vampires series. In this novel Claire really leaves Morganville for Boston where she encounters more trouble than she ever has before. The people that she thought she could trust turned out to be the people she shouldn’t. The novel was gripping and full of surprises. Every chapter led to something new and exciting to read about. This novel only had points of view for Claire and Shane who were the main characters, but it would have been great to read more points of view. The novel ended on a cliffhanger so you have to wait until the next book to find out what is going to happen next. Even though there are 14 novels, each new book has something new that happens to keep you reading. So if you’ve started the journey in this series, it’s worth it because it never gets boring.
The Fault in Our Stars by: John Green: The story of Hazel, a cancer patient who lives her life at home, until one day she meets Augustus and her life changes. Augustus is this charming guy who also has cancer, but together the two of them find happiness. The story is sweet and beautifully written. It’s written about true love, the purest form of love there is. While you read it, it’s the kind of love you wish for and aspire for. And as much as it is beautiful, there is pain in it too. The story couldn’t be told without pain. In the end it is still a wonderfully crafted novel that makes you want to read, even if it gets sad because it is just that good.
Hallow City by: Ransom Riggs: The second book in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series. A continuation to where we left off in the first book. All the peculiar children are making their way to London to try and help Miss Peregrine because she’s in trouble. Along their way they meet a lot more children who are peculiar just like them. This novel was just as good, if not better than the first with an adventure that is sure to leave you wondering what is going to happen next. That’s the way the novel ended, with you wondering what will happen, only the next book will tell! The creativeness of the author is just so genius it makes these novels hard to put down! Read this even if you’re not into odd things, you will be afterwards!
Before I Die by: Jenny Downham: The story of an English girl named Tessa Scott. She has made a list for herself to accomplish before she dies. As the book goes on, the more she does, and sometimes the less she does. As much as the story plot isn’t original, the main character is somewhat original. She wants what most people dying want, to not be dying. The book goes through the different emotions that people, not just the main character, but the people in her life go through as she suffers. The writing was written well, the story just didn’t have a “wow” factor to it to make it a great story. It was just a good story.
Blue Moon by: Alyson Noel: The second book in the immortals series. Things have gone astray in Ever’s life. Her love life has fallen apart, her friends have abandoned her, and she’s all-alone. That’s all because of a new kid, Roman. He’s dead set on making her life a living hell, which sucks when you’re immortal. The novel was fast paced with many chapters. The overall plotline, was a bit predictable, but overall, it wasn’t that bad to read. It kept the reader entertained. The ending was somewhat happy, but the story isn’t over yet, there is definitely more to come.
Forbidden by: Tabitha Suzuma: The story of a love that is forbidden, and not in the sense that everyone thinks. Lochan and Maya are two siblings who have to keep up a household, and pretty much raise three kids because their parents abandoned them. It’s when the pressures from all of it sprout an unforeseen romance. The novel is a little odd, and nothing that’s written about often. It was really well written, and the ending took a turn the reader wasn’t expecting. The book was probably a bit long for what was to happen in the duration of the novel, it felt like the middle of the book dragged on, and it needed to get to the point, and what was going to happen. But overall, it was a well-told story.
Well that's all for me! What have you guys been reading? :)
