It’s been a long time!

Hey guys!

Sorry I’ve been missing for a while, but life kind of got in the way. You know how that works.

Let’s play a little catch up!

First up.. do any of you watch Secrets and Lies? Because that finale, who saw that one coming?! I know I for sure didn’t! Without any spoilers… HOLY WOW! That either came out of absolutely nowhere or I missed HUGE parts of the show! (Or I guess I can never be a detective!) If you want to talk about this, I want to talk about it with you!!

Some books I’ve read recently that I’ve absolutely loved: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes; The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige; Passing Through Perfect by Bette Lee Crosby.

Other books I’ve read: Yes Please, by Amy Poehler and Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch.

I’m also in the middle of reading Sarah Dessen’s The Truth About Forever and listening to Rosamund Hodge.

What’s been going on with you??

Guys, guys!!!

I can not tell you how excited I am for this one to come out! The first book in the series, Dorothy Must Die, was my absolute favorite book last year! I bought it the day it came out and finished it that night!

The Wizard of Oz is my all time favorite movie, and I loved the twist Danielle put on it in her book!

So yeah, March 31 can not come soon enough!

THIS MAY BE FULL OF SPOILERISH THINGS. DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE RETURN YET.

I preordered The Return as soon as I found out that this book was happening, this was back in October. I was so excited that Seth was going to get his own story, maybe his own little bit of happiness after how Sentinel ended. In the beginning, you can tell that that’s probably not how this story is going to work out..at least for a while.

But, guys, Seth spent most of the book talking about how sexually attracted to the girl he was supposed to be watching over he was, and how hard she made him (his pants got very tight, a lot). Now, I know Seth was with pretty much every girl in The Covenant series…but did we have to spend half of the book hearing about this? And then when it came to Josie’s point of view, we had to hear about how hot she thinks Seth is, and how aroused she is by him…come on, really?

There wasn’t enough action (fighting wise) for me in this one. I mean we really only get one HUGE fight at the end of the book..and then cliff hanger. I don’t count the daimon attack, or attack at the grandparent’s house. They aren’t the kinds of fights I’m used to reading with Armentrout.

And there definitely wasn’t enough Deacon. I can never get enough Deacon. I know it’s not supposed to be about Deacon, but still!

I just felt like she could’ve done so much more with this…

But that being said, I will be reading the next one..because I have to know what happens. And because no matter what she’s writing about, I will always love reading anything she writes!

I was lucky enough to win a copy of this book, and was very excited to start reading it when it arrived.

And guys, let me tell you, as soon as I read the first few sentences, I knew this was going to be one of those books you HAVE to finish in one sitting. Ya know, the kind you need to know the ending of RIGHT NOW?

I did just that. I spent all night reading this book. I absolutely adored the characters. They felt so real, and I felt like they had normal reactions to what was going on. And they acted like normal teenagers. Like I said, it just felt real.

Oh, and the ending..was totally not what I was expecting! But in such a good way. It made my heart happy.

So, have you guys read I Remember You? What did you think of it?

So it’s been a while…

Posted: February 9, 2015 in Uncategorized

Hey guys! So sorry I’ve been gone for so long! Life sort of got in the way, and I haven’t really been able to be around..

But I have been reading a lot, and trying to keep up with challenges and all…

Recently I’ve gotten into the Lunar Chronicles. And man, I wish someone would’ve told me how amazing these books were! If you haven’t read them, stop what you’re doing now and do it! Believe me, you’ll love them!

I’ve also been catching up with the Pretty Little Liars book series. I don’t think it’s anywhere near as good as the TV series, but it’s just as addictive.

Oh, and I’ve also (tried) to read the Maze Runner series. I’m not really sure how I feel about it.. but I have read the first two books. So I guess it can’t be that terrible, right?

What have you guys been up to?

I’ve seen so many positive reviews about this book, that I just had to read it! And I wanted to like it, I really did. But then I started it..

And I’ve never met two main characters that I’ve disliked more in my life.

They form a friends-with-benefits relationship and Miles is pretty clear they will never have more than that. He only has two rules:

1 – Don’t Ask About the Past.
2 – Don’t Expect a Future.

There’s Tate. How little does she think of herself? There’s a thing called self-respect, sweetie, you should get some. Who cares if she thinks she’s in love? She should not have let herself be treated like that. What she thinks she sees as little signs of love can’t be nearly enough to put herself through that. She was nothing but a booty-call. And she was okay with this!

And man, she’s completely obsessed with Miles! She lives and breathes him. I don’t understand this, as she knows pretty much nothing about him. But she’s convinced herself that Miles loves her, too.

“That’s how it is when a person develops an attraction towards someone. He’s nowhere, then suddenly he’s everywhere, whether you want him to be or not. It makes me wonder if I’m anywhere to him, but the thought doesn’t last long.”

And then there’s Miles. He’s pretty much the biggest dick ever, because of something that happened in his past, something with Rachel. Rachel, Rachel, Rachel. UGHHHH.

“My thoughts are Rachel.
I can’t fall in love with you, Rachel.
I look at the sink. I want to look at Rachel.
I breath the air. I want to breathe in Rachel.
I close my eyes. I only see Rachel.
I wash my hands. I want to touch Rachel.”

“My new favorite flavor is Rachel.
My new favorite thing is Rachel.
I want Rachel for my birthday. I want Rachel for
Christmas. I want Rachel for graduation.”

He’s so worried about the past, and what happened, that he won’t admit that he’s falling in love with Tate. I can’t tell you much else about him, except that he’s a pilot, he’s tall, and he’s handsome. That’s because he’s quiet, and doesn’t tell Tate anything about himself.

To be honest, the only reason I finished the book was to find out what happened to make Miles how he is. And even that was a little under-whelming. I did feel sorry for him, I did, but that doesn’t give him the right to treat Tate the way he does.

What I did like about the book was Cap! He was so entertaining, and such a cute old man! I loved how he gave advice to Tate, and how they bonded.

“When life gives you lemons, make sure you know whose eyes you need to squeeze them in.”

Ugly Love

I started Ugly Love last night with every intention for it to be the book I read into the new year.

I finished it last night.

I’ll wait until January 1 to post my review, or after. But, I can’t just can’t .. Ughhhh!

Anyone else read this one? Wanna talk about it??
