Rose has changed. She still lives in the same neighborhood with her stepmother and goes to the same high school with the same group of kids, but when she woke up today, something was just a little different than it was before. The dogs who live upstairs are no longer a terror. Her hair and her clothes all feel brand-new. She wants to throw a party—this from a girl who hardly ever spoke to her classmates before. There is no more sadness in her life; she is bursting with happiness.

But something still feels wrong to Rose. Because, until very recently, Rose was an entirely different person—a person who is still there inside her, just beneath the thinnest layer of skin.

  I was given an ARC by the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. 

Change Places with Me has a synopsis that just made me need to know what’s going on. The synopsis is very vague, but in this instance it worked out perfectly. However, I can’t help but be disappointed.

Change Places with Me is a very weird book. The tone of the whole book is weird, and Rose talks as if she’s not a fifteen-year-old girl. Once you start reading the novel, what’s behind the mystery kind of gets predictable. The characters, for me, are not well-developed, and there was a hint of romance that was not explored. Or even if it’s just friendship, it still wasn’t explored well.

The resolution is a good resolution generally, but it’s not a proper ending to tie all lose ends. I felt like it ended abruptly, but the ending was really beautiful. However, even until the end, both the speech and the narration were still awkward.

I think the only thing that I liked about this novel is how much of a quick read it is. I read this in just a few hours and it’s easy to breeze through. The book is not so bad in the sense that it didn’t make me cringe. The book is just really not for me. Overall, it was kind of ‘meh.’

Sloane knows better than to cry in front of anyone. With suicide now an international epidemic, one outburst could land her in The Program, the only proven course of treatment. Sloane’s parents have already lost one child; Sloane knows they’ll do anything to keep her alive. She also knows that everyone who’s been through The Program returns as a blank slate. Because their depression is gone—but so are their memories.

Under constant surveillance at home and at school, Sloane puts on a brave face and keeps her feelings buried as deep as she can. The only person Sloane can be herself with is James. He’s promised to keep them both safe and out of treatment, and Sloane knows their love is strong enough to withstand anything. But despite the promises they made to each other, it’s getting harder to hide the truth. They are both growing weaker. Depression is setting in. And The Program is coming for them.

The Program is a book which, in my opinion, has quite an interesing description. But it has a description which, combined with the cover and the name of the book, gives a lot away. There are many things that you know are going to happen. That could make the book predictable and uneventful.

Thankfully, the author was very much aware of that little could-be problem and wrote the book accordingly so that it remained interesting.

This is a well written and well planned book with very likable characters and – most of the time – a good pace. I was a bit surprised that it wasn’t more popular since it has all the YA aspects that are present in popular books and then some.

Now, saying it has all the YA factors may be seen as a good thing or a bad thing. In this case, it’s a good thing, mostly.

I really don’t wanna say much about this book because I feel like all the things that happen need to be experienced without knowing much, exactly the way I experienced it. I liked deciding for myself whether The Program was right for teenagers or not, whether what the parents did was justified or not. So when going into this book, you should keep an open mind about everything.

This book is divided into three parts. The first part was very good. It was very emotional, heavy and, at times, depressing but that was necessary and good. The second part was revelatory and very interesting. It answered many questioned which I has while read part 1. In fact, I was very impressed with the book at that point.

It was the third part that worked against it. It wasn’t bad, per say but it wasn’t good enough. It was too clean cut. There were some things that happened too quick and some that were too convenient. There were also some events that happened without much build-up. They just popped up out of the blue.

The third part started okay but it slowly lost the realistic factor. That’s my major complaint about the book. It lacks the gritty-ness of life. It made life seem like slice of cheese, all solid and neat, being eaten with a spoon. Life is more like pouring soup in a retainer and trying to eat it with a fork. Basically, it’s a mess. That didn’t show in the book.

Also, there were one or two scenes when Sloane was telling a story but it seems more like someone reading from a published novel and less like a teenager talking. Meaning it was too detailed, descriptive and used words people don’t normally use in casual conversation.

But other that these two things, the book was very good,I enjoyed it and I do recommend it. I can’t guarantee that everyone will like it but it had many good qualities so I doubt you’ll hate it.

It’s the year 2044, and the real world is an ugly place.

Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes his grim surroundings by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia that lets you be anything you want to be, a place where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets.

And like most of humanity, Wade dreams of being the one to discover the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this virtual world. For somewhere inside this giant networked playground, OASIS creator James Halliday has hidden a series of fiendish puzzles that will yield massive fortune — and remarkable power — to whoever can unlock them.

For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that Halliday’s riddles are based in the pop culture he loved — that of the late twentieth century. And for years, millions have found in this quest another means of escape, retreating into happy, obsessive study of Halliday’s icons. Like many of his contemporaries, Wade is as comfortable debating the finer points of John Hughes’s oeuvre, playing Pac-Man, or reciting Devo lyrics as he is scrounging power to run his OASIS rig.

And then Wade stumbles upon the first puzzle.

Suddenly the whole world is watching, and thousands of competitors join the hunt — among them certain powerful players who are willing to commit very real murder to beat Wade to this prize. Now the only way for Wade to survive and preserve everything he knows is to win. But to do so, he may have to leave behind his oh-so-perfect virtual existence and face up to life — and love — in the real world he’s always been so desperate to escape.

A world at stake.
A quest for the ultimate prize.
Are you ready?

Ready Player One is about Wade Watts who recounts the journey of how he managed to get the egg that James Halliday left in his virtual reality game, the OASIS, for people to find. To find the egg, one must first find three keys and open three gates. The first one to find the egg would then be awarded all of James Halliday’s possessions.

Ready Player One is a book with a brilliant concept, and it took me to a whole different world. The plot is excellent and very much unique, and it was clearly well thought of. Wade Watts is a very smart character, and I was sucked into his journey of how everything played out. I didn’t understand all the references since I’m a late 90’s baby, but I really enjoyed how Wade figured everything out. It was all very exciting, and I found myself being amused by the story. The world-building was on point too.

However, there were parts of the book wherein I just skimmed over the words because I felt like it was all narration. Maybe it’s because I am not a gamer, maybe it’s because I’m not used to reading books with very limited dialogues, or maybe I am just not familiar with 80’s pop culture I don’t know. Also, I felt like it was repetitive how Wade would mention that he watched/played everything multiple times, which I already know from the start.

Aside from those, I don’t have any more complaints. I must admit, despite not being a gamer, this was pretty interesting. However, we just didn’t click. I don’t feel super compelled by the book, but it was quite enjoyable.

They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time

Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it’s his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making.

As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence’s life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.

  I was given an ARC by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 

From the time that I read Until We Meet Again’s synopsis earlier this year, it’s been one of my most anticipated releases. Imagine my delight when I got approved for an eARC copy though Netgalley! I was eager to read it, however I tried to hold myself back since I wanted to read it closer to the release date. Now here I am, more than 2 months before the release date, already writing a review.

For all my eagerness to read this book, I’m really glad that it did not disappoint since I’m usually disappointed when I’m too excited for something. Until We Meet Again has a unique take on the concept of time travel and it’s definitely different from any other book I’ve read before. In my opinion, it has a bit of a Tuck Everlasting feel to it, because of that sort of mystic feeling that they both possess.

Until We Meet Again was a quick and easy read. It has been quite a long time since I last read more than half of a book in a sitting, but this one did it! Plus, it definitely broke through my reading slump!

I have mixed feelings about the ending. It was really beautifully written, but I’m still not sure if I’m happy or sad about it. There were things that I liked, and there were things that I didn’t really like. Overall though, this was a pretty great book, and I’m just so glad that I wasn’t disappointed.

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it’s clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.

Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

  I can’t say that I wasn’t intimidated by Illuminae’s size when I first looked at it, because come on, it’s a huge book with so many pages! I can, however, say that I was deeply fascinated when I scanned the book before reading it. Illuminae is a very uniquely formatter book – one that is told through hacked documents like emails, surveillance reports, classified reports, etc.

  At first it was kind of hard for me to understand what was going on since there were no narrations. It took a while before the world set in for me, but once it did, I was hooked, even though some parts still confused the heck out of me. Although that may be because of my inexperience as a fantasy/sci-fi reader.

  The book was very exciting, while still being able to keep a steady pace. There were so many things that happened in the book, and the authors got me so many times. And I really felt what Kady was feeling. As a result, I was always mad towards the end of the book. Haha! Even though it’s a huge book, it’s completely addicting. I’m just really amazed at how there’s a book like this!

  Gosh, I can’t imagine the two authors’ writing process, but I really want to know how they came up with the idea of the formatting. No wonder the hype surrounding this book is so huge! I mean, who wouldn’t be hooked? And the images really helped me with imaging things. I actually felt like I was kind of like a kid, reading picture books again, but with more mature contents. The whole reading experience was really fun for me.

  I think the book could stand alone for itself since it already felt complete to me in the end. But still, I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK! Ahh, this is so exciting!

ARC Review: From Distant Star


Title: From a Distant Star
Author: Karen McQuestion
Series: N/A, Standalone
Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Science Fiction
Publication Date: May 19th 2015
My Rating: 3 Stars

  Seventeen-year-old Emma was the only one who hadn’t given up on her boyfriend, Lucas. Everyone else—his family, his friends, his doctors—was convinced that any moment could be his last. So when Lucas miraculously returns from the brink of death, Emma thinks her prayers have been answered.

  As the surprised town rejoices, Emma begins to question whether Lucas is the same boy she’s always known. When she finds an unidentifiable object on his family’s farm—and government agents come to claim it—she begins to suspect that nothing is what it seems. Emma’s out-of-this-world discovery may be the key to setting things right, but only if she and Lucas can evade the agents who are after what they have. With all her hopes and dreams on the line, Emma sets out to save the boy she loves. And with a little help from a distant star, she might just have a chance at making those dreams come true.

I received an ARC copy of this book from the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Everybody thinks that Lucas will die soon, except for Emma, his girlfriend. Out of desperation, Emma seeks the help of Mrs. Kokesh to provide her a potion to bring Lucas back from the dead. After doing what she was told to do, Lucas miraculously woke up and started to feel better, only now he’s not like himself. Later on, the find out that an alien is inhabiting Lucas’ body and Emma has to help him get back home so that she can get back the real Lucas.

This was a ‘meh’ book. I don’t have any bad things to say about it, but I don’t have much good things to say about it either. It’s not so boring that I lost interest that I put the book down, but it wasn’t so exciting to motivate me to read on either. It was not horrible, but it was not great either. There were parts where I just skimmed the book, but it wasn’t that bad.

I guess the pacing and the plot alright, and I also liked the friendship that formed between Emma and the alien. I just wished that there were more parts that showed Lucas since the whole thing was about getting him back. The book was centered on him, but he was barely there. Honestly, this was really weird alien book, but props to the author for the very unique plot.

I racked my brain for more things to say about this book, but I can come up with nothing to sway me to one side. I guess I just have no strong opinions about this book. Thus, I am giving this book 3 stars to stay in the middle.

ARC Review: I Remember You

  For fans of THE FUTURE OF US comes an engrossing story of two teens, whose love for each other is tested by time and fate.

  Lucas and Juliet couldn’t be more different from each other. But from the moment Lucas sees Juliet, he swears he remembers their first kiss. Their first dance. Their first fight. He even knows what’s going to happen between them—not because he can predict the future, but because he claims to have already lived it.

  Juliet doesn’t know whether to be afraid for herself or for Lucas. As Lucas’s memories occur more frequently, they also grow more ominous. All Juliet wants is to keep Lucas safe with her. But how do you hold on to someone you love in the present when they’ve begun slipping away from you in the future?

Thank you, Cathleen Bell and Netgalley for providing me a copy of this book!

  When Lucas drops a pen in class and Juliet picks it up, he looks into her eyes and remembers their first kiss in the rooftop. So he takes Juliet up the rooftop, kisses her, but ends up freaking her out. Then he explains that he keeps seeing these “memories” of them, which turns out to be memories of the future.

  I had great expectations for this book because when I read the synopsis, I immediately wanted to read it! I felt my hands tingling, and I looked for ways to get a hold of a copy the minute I clicked “Want to Read” on Goodreads. However, the book didn’t live up to my expectations.

  The romance in this book was too fast paced for me. After the kiss that freaked out Juliet, they immediately liked each other, and they were heads over heels with each other in the first few chapters of the book. Aside from the romance however, there was not much happening to the story.

  There were also times when I felt like my orientation with the timeline of events were off. I didn’t know that a certain amount of time had passed, and would only know about it in the latter chapters. But, what I hated the most was the fact that Juliet became a bitch to everyone aside from Lucas when they got together. I just hated the personality change and it almost came to the point when I couldn’t stand her anymore.

  Fortunately, for me and for this book, it began to pick up towards the last half of the book. Now it’s not to say that I loved all of the last half, but I began to like it. If I were to judge just based on the last half, I would probably give it 4.0 stars. Things began to make more sense and the timeline was clearer. The story also began to progress.

  Towards the last 20% or so of the book, I began to love it. Things began to be really amazing, and it lived up to the expectations that I had before I read the book.

  Overall, this book didn’t live up to my expectations as a whole, but I liked it more and more as the story progressed.

Review: Insurgent

Title: Insurgent

Publication Date: March 18th, 2014
My Rating: 4.5 Stars

  One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

  Tris’s initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

  I waited so long to read this one for the fear that I might be disappointed. As you can see from both my blog and Goodreads name, I am an avid fan of Divergent, the first book in this series. I loved the first book too much that I feared I would be disappointed by this one, but boy was I wrong! I loved this one, even though there were times that I felt like this was too action-packed. I was actually expecting action-packed, just not this much. And Tris was very annoying for the most part too. But, despite all that, I still can’t help but give this five stars! I loved it! (Though I actually don’t know why.)

  I’m still not sure if I’m glad I waited so long to read this or not, but I can say that I loved this book. Probably not as much as the first book, but really close. I liked to enough to be able to say that the second book was not a disappointment and was able to live up to the amazing-ness of the first book.

  This was an exciting and exhilarating book, and I couldn’t put it down for even a second! I found myself constantly catching my breath because I was trying to follow the fast-paced action!

  I’m so glad that I finally finally read this book, because I now know what the talk is about! But I guess the wait prepared me a lot too, so while I could have read this sooner, I think the wait made me enjoy the book even more. I’m just so glad that this one did not let me down, because what would I do with my blog name now, right? HAHA! :))

*I apologize, it was just so hard to write a coherent review of this one, because I was so afraid, and then so relieved, and all these feelings are just making my head so messy!

“People, I have discovered, are layers and layers of secrets. You believe you know them, that you understand them, but their motives are always hidden from you, buried in their own hearts. You will never know them, but sometimes you decide to trust them.”

“We both have war inside us. Sometimes it keeps us alive. Sometimes it threatens to destroy us.”

  “You have to kill him.” Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.

 Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.

 Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Now someone is trying to kill him. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was.

 All Our Yesterdays is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.

  I picked this book up mainly because I got approved on Netgalley, and many people were gushing about it. If you told me that I would really like this book if I read it, I probably wouldn’t believe you. 

  At the start of the novel, I didn’t quite understand what was happening, despite knowing that this is a time-travel novel, but I guess that’s more my fault than the author’s. Then, as the story progressed, I got more and more engrossed in Em’s, Finn’s and James’ story. The plot is not complicated, but I can say that it is complete – it has fantasy, romance, friendship and others. The pacing became slow for me at the start, but starting from the middle, I felt like I was running a marathon (not in a bad way) because I felt like I had to run in order for me to be able to catch up with the exciting plot.

   The author captured the concept of time-traveling really well,  and I think that I would read more time-travel novels in the future because of this book.

   Starting over sucks.

   When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

   And then he opened his mouth.

   Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

   The hot alien living next door marks me.

   You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

   If I don’t kill him first, that is.

    Wow, I seriously didn’t think I would like this one, but just WOW. To be honest, I didn’t want to read this book because I’m not into paranormal books. I’m more of the contemporary romance type of gal. But then bloggers in twitter kept gushing about Daemon, so I felt compelled to read it. Little did I know that after reading the book, I would be one of those girls too.

   Katy is the new girl in the small town of West Virginia. Used to being a bystander all her life, she’ determined not to be one this year. Then she meets Dee who lives next door, and they were quick to hit it off. They become instant best friends. Enter Daemon Black, Dee’s twin and very hot guy-next-door. He’s everything the opposite of Dee, kinda like the usual male protagonists in stories – infuriating, arrogant, condescending,  overbearing, but most important of all, drool-worthy.

   Sounds like a typical novel to you? Nuh-uh, don’t be fooled. You’re in for a ride, cause this is one of the most original stories I’ve ever come across with, what with Dee and Daemon being aliens and all. Yes, Daemon is the typical male protagonist, but that doesn’t mean he’s like the rest. He’s caring, loyal, responsible, but only when he wants to. Now I completely understand what fellow bloggers were gushing about. Plus, Katy is a book blogger like us! Major plus points!

   The first part was intesting, but it was kind of slow for me, but at the second half of the novel, things got really good, and I was really amazed. I don;t know how to put the words together to describe how much I enjoyed this book, just that it got me out of my almost-three-week long reading slump.

   Amusing, entertaining and toe-curling, this is a must read for readers looking for something out of the norm.

“Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys.” 
“Why are you such an ass?” The words came out before I could think twice.
“Everyone has to excel at something, right?”
“Well, you’re doing a great job.”  
“I’ve always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect.” His eyes searched mine intently, and for a moment we stood there toe to toe. “The ones who throw their beauty around, waste what they have? Their beauty is only passing. It’s just a shell hiding nothing but shadows and emptiness.” 
“I don’t think he meant to kiss me,” I said finally.
“What? Did he slip and fall on your mouth? Those things are known to happen.”  
“Daemon: I checked out your blog.
Katy: Stalking me again, I see. Do I need to get a restraining order?
Daemon: In your dreams, Kitten. Oh wait, I’m already starring in those, aren’t I?
Katy: Nightmares, Daemon. Nightmares.”
