Top Ten books recently added to my TBR

                             This is a meme hosted by the ladies over at  The Broke and the Bookish :)


     Red Queen by: Victoria Aveyard

  This book has been given great reviews and it became a NYT #1 best-seller within the first ten days of its release...what?!?! It was also on my TBR for last month but I sadly was unable to get to it. (Did I mention I'm also extremely scared of getting spoiled...)


Don't look Back by: Jennifer L. Armentrout (a.k.a queen)

  Jennifer L. Armentrout has never disappointed and I recently made a trip to Barnes and Noble which resulted in the purchase of the paperback edition of Don't Look Back. I'm not sure if I'll get to this next month but definitely sometime soon:)

Volition by: Lily Paradis

 I'm actually currently reading this but Ive barely started. I'll definitely be finishing this the second I get a chance to sit down and read...(I love it so far :)


All The Bright Places by: Jennifer Niven

 I bought this book a month or two ago and everything I've heard is amazing! That's definitely a sign I need to read sometime soon...

The Wicked Will Rise by: Daniel Paige

 I don't own a copy of this book yet but it's one of my most anticipated books of this year! I really enjoyed Dorothy Must Die and I need to know what happens!!!!

A Court of Thorns and Roses by: Sarah J Maas

 This book isn't released until May but I already have it pre-ordered and I just have to express how excited I am about it because I'm extremely excited....:):):):):):):):):)!!!!!!!!!!

The Darkest Minds by: Alexandra Bracken 

 This book is my most recent purchase and I've heard really amazing things about it. I mean, kids with superpowers, come on. Why haven't I read it already?!?!?

The Secret Diamond Sisters by: Michelle Madow

 This book sounds super awesome. Its the story of three sisters and they discover their dad is a billionaire! What?!

Greek Myths by: Nathaniel Hawthorne

I think Greek Myths are super interesting so why not...

The Assassins Blade by: Sarah J Maas

 I also recently purchased this book at Barnes and Noble and I literally can't wait because...Celaena Sardothien...YASSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!

Recommendation Friday #1

Recommendation Friday is a weekly meme created by Taylor and Stephanie over at The Bibliophile Gathering!
I decided to participate because everyone needs recommendations, right?
I'll be doing this every week so keep checking back!



For my first recommendation Friday I'm gonna be recommending Tiger Lily by: Jodi Lynn Anderson.




Tiger Lily is a retelling of the classic Peter Pan. Except... it follows Tiger Lily, the girl that loved Peter Pan before Wendy came to Neverland. This story is still filled with all the magic of Neverland (pirates, fairies, mermaids, etc.) but it has a unique character perspective and the story makes you feel all the feels. 

This cover is beautiful and so was the story. I read this book last year and I still go back and look at it. The story was unique and I've never read any book like it.  Reading from Tiger Lily's perspective was extremely interesting because normally the story of Peter Pan is told from the perspective of Wendy or the lost boys. But in this story I got to see a different side of living in Neverland and what life was like for the Native's (because it's not usually addressed). Tiger Lily as a character could kick butt and she wasn't afraid to be different from other people in her tribe. Throughout the entire book she stayed strong even though things got hard...very hard. I highly recommend this book to people who have a love for Peter Pan. Even if you don't particularly love Peter Pan I would still read this book. READ IT!!!!

The Deception Trials (About the story)

Background:
A few months back, as in October-ish, the ladies at team Epic Reads made a tea time video for Halloween. In this video they asked the question "What book would you like to see be made into a horror novel?" A book they mentioned was The Selection by: Kiera Cass. That very night I began to write ideas down as far as changing the book into something more creepy and horror-like.
I don't nearly have an entire story written but I do have over 3,000 words that take place in the horror version of Illea. If you actually do decide to follow along with my messed up version of the amazing story I wanna tell you some things first:
1. This story doesn't have an annoying protagonist by the name of America, or a 'dreamy' prince named Maxon.
2. The America in this story does not have a family who cares what happens to her.
3. The girls competing to be crowned queen would much rather be in the lowest caste than be where they are now.
4. About #1... the "protagonist" is still slightly annoying...
5:


  35 Girls. 1 Crown. 1 Survivor. 


    You won't even see the story coming.....

Fall Out Girl by: L.Duarte ARC review

Fall Out Girl

Rating: 5/5
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: 3/2015

Synopsis:(from Goodreads)


Imagine a social outcast: Me. (Luna)

Imagine a popular boy: Him. (Caleb)

Sound like the characters of a cliché story, right? Here, hold my hand. Come away with me. I’ll tell you my story, and you’ll decide.

But I have a warning: Proceed at your own risk. Since it’s a snippet of my life, I’m one of the main characters. And to put it lightly, I’m not the most likable person in the world, cue the earned label. Also, unlike fairy tales, my story is real with a dash of sorrow and loss. 

How do I start? Once upon a time…? Shoot me now, please. 

The beginning? No, too boring.

Well, let’s start with the catalytic moment that set in motion a chain of events that changed my life, yet again.

As for a happily ever after? Sorry, no spoilers here. You’re going to have to figure that one out on your own. After you read my tale, it becomes yours, and as such, you’re entitled to your interpretation.

So, off we go! 

Fasten your seat belts. This ride may get bumpy.




    So obviously the cover drew me in because, let's be honest, it's absolutely stunning.
Then I read the synopsis and I had to know what happens because it is on the more vague side.
With that being said, once I actually started this book I was very surprised. Who could have known Luna and her cousin were drug dealers and they were in a crap situation. Yep, not me....
Though I was kind of shocked at the situation Luna was in, I absolutely adored this book! 
The situation was handled in such a realistic way that I really felt strongly for all of the characters...well, most of the characters.
The events that took place over the course of this story made me stop and think about life...Yes, yes they did. This situation was realistic and it does happen in real life. Maybe not the characters or any specific event but the abusive households and drug dealing part. That alone made the story extremely emotional and believable.
 ............................................
My thoughts on Luna: For the first few parts of the book I didn't like Luna (and I don't think I was supposed to) She pushed everybody away and I just wanted to scream at her: "MAKE A FRIEND!!!" Besides Jake of course... When Caleb came into the picture I started to like her more because she started to let her defensive barrier down so she wasn't always rude and horrible. 
Anyways....As the story progressed I got to see more of her true self and her backstory. 
All in all, I really ended up liking her towards the very end because she let a lot of her anger go and she let herself start fresh like she deserved to.
.............................................
My thoughts on Caleb: I felt like I was on a roller coaster with Caleb. 
I loved him, hated him, then loved him again.
 I couldn't help but love Caleb when we first meet him. He's just so upfront and isn't scared of Luna, though she is intimidating. He almost reminded me of Levi from Fangirl (except in a more adult situation) But then I thought that something has to go wrong with him because he's just too perfect to be in this situation.....And something did go wrong. Even though I was expecting it I almost started crying because I felt bad for Luna.
After the storm there was a rainbow...if you know what I mean :)
Caleb redeemed himself as a character and I couldn't have been happier.
..............................................
My feelings at the end: I was hysterical because the feels hit me hard...really hard.
After everything this story took me through I thought the ending was perfect and beautiful. It couldn't have been done better. :)



Quote I noticed:
  "The tricky thing about fear is: it wears a different mask everyday."


       Final thoughts: READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!


Thank You to L. Duarte for providing me with an ARC. Nothing I could say in a review could possibly sum up all the feelings I felt while reading. :)

Cry me a book River: Top 5 books that stack on the feels

If you want books that will give you the hard-core feels then I've got you covered!
These books will be ordered from less feels to "Oh, crap, my heart hurts and I can't even..."
 (Keep in mind these books are all amazing for there own reason!:)


5. Fangirl by: Rainbow Rowell

This book didn't particularly make me cry, maybe tearing up, it just made me feel all the feels and I loved it for that reason.
I couldn't help but love (most) of the characters and when good stuff happened to them it , kinda, made me happy cry.....just a wee bit :)














4. The Fault in Our Stars by: John Green

What you may be thinking is "Why isn't this #1?"
Well, to answer that question this book didn't actually make me cry...I know thats shocking but....
I got spoiled on this book and I completely expected the ending.  I was preparing myself throughout the entire book for the ending and when I got there... I still teared up because I absolutely adore this book! Augustus Waters will always have a special place in my heart... forever, and ever, and ever, and ever....
The feels though :)










3. Champion by: Marie Lu

Champion is the final book in the Legend trilogy.
To be honest, this is one of the happiest endings I've ever read to a dystopian trilogy...which is extremely sad because the ending to this book made me start sobbing.
Once I finished this book I couldn't stop crying, and when I did I would go and read the last two sentences again...then the crying would begin again.
I don't want to spoil anything but I highly recommend this trilogy.











2. City Of Heavenly Fire by: Cassandra Clare

 COHF is the sixth and final book in the Mortal Instruments. (A series I am extremely, emotionally attached to...)
It took me few weeks to read this book because I never wanted it to end!
I knew once I finished it I would start crying...and I did...as in sobbing, hard-core, for an hour....I really need more Clace and Sizzy...












1. Clockwork Princess by: Cassandra Clare


I loved this series a hundred times more than the Mortal Instruments (which is saying a lot)
I am forever a Wessa shipper and then later on a Jessa shipper.
I finished this book and cried for an hour +
Then I looked up COHF theories and any hint that my favorite characters ever would be in it (keep in mind COHF wasn't out yet)
...and continued to sob.
This may be my favorite book ever.
It just made me feel so many different things and it hurt that I was done.
I read the epilogue earlier last month (once I finished the Bane Chronicles) and started hysterically crying again because every time I see Will, Tessa, or Jem I start hysterically crying.
THIS BOOK IS LEGITIMATELY THE BEST THING EVER!!!

That epilogue though...

Waiting on Wednesday #2: Still waiting, still Wednesday

Moving a little farther ahead as far as expected release, I can't wait for...


Magonia by: Maria Dahvana Headley


Expected release date: April 28th, 2015
Young Adult

Description:

Aza Ray is drowning in thin air.
Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak—to live.
All the doctors can do is give her drugs and hope they keep her alive. So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of the medication. But Aza doesn't think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name.
Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who's always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. The sickness catches up with her.
Aza is lost to our world.
And found, by another.
Magonia.
Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time. Better, she has immense power. And she can use it to change the world.
As she navigates her new life, Aza discovers that war is coming. Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning. In Aza's hands lies the whole of humanity—including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie?

Reasons I'm excited:
1.This cover is absolutely stunning!
2. Neil Gaiman blurbed it
3. It sounds interesting
4. Did I already mention the cover?

The Book Thief by: Markus Zusak *spoiler free* Review

The Book Thief

Published: March 14th, 2006
Pages: 550
Rating: 5/5

            It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. 
            Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.
By her brother's graveside, Liesel Meminger's life is changed when she pick's up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Grave Digger's Handbook, left there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordion-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor's wife's library, wherever there are books to be found.
  But these are dangerous times. When Liesel's foster family hides a Jew in their basement, Liesel's world is both opened up and closed down.
  

  This book was required reading for my English class which actually made me quite excited! I had been meaning to read this book for the longest time because I had heard nothing but great things about it. It being required reading gave me an excuse to start it.
  But once I started it I found the first 100 pages to be slightly slow moving. (Even though within the first 25 pages there was a death.)  As far as what my feelings are on what happens after those first 100 pages....I'm not even sure I can properly explain it with words.
   Lets just begin with the characters....
I really liked Leisel's character! She was just an overall thought provoking person. I think its amazing that she had the courage, at a younger age, to be her own person and steal books despite all the crap occurring at this time in history. She always had some type of understanding of others and if she didn't, she wasn't afraid to ask questions so she could acquire one.  
   Other characters including: Max, Rudy, Hans, Rosa, Tommy, Steiner family, etc. I loved them, I hated them, I cried for them, I felt all the feelings for them, and now I miss them because there are no other books with them...
   And I definitely can't forget to mention our narrator, Death. 
Having Death as a narrator was interesting because as a reader I didn't only get to see Liesel's story, though it was the main focus, but also parts where Death would talk about his thoughts on what was occurring or just his job in general. 
  The story overall was woven together nicely and once I truly got into it I couldn't stop reading.
   
                               ***A Last Note From Your Narrator***
               
                 I would highly recommend listening to this as an audio-book because the narrators voice is spot on. :)

Barnes and Noble: A tale of awkwardness

A couple of weeks ago I went to my (not so local) Barnes and Noble.
It was the week before valentines day and I wanted to prepare to be completely and utterly alone. So automatically I go to Jennifer L. Armentrout books for obvious reasons. I had been eyeing Wicked for a couple of months in advance and I figured Valentines day was the perfect excuse to buy and read it. Little did I know what awaited me in the dreaded adult romance section....



   Yes, I did procrastinate for a while in the Young Adult section but I couldn't stay there forever. So I headed over to the adult romance section. (More like snuck over.) When I got over there I started searching rapidly for Wicked, but with no luck. So I searched another time, and another time, and another time, but still didn't find anything. 
  
(Keep in mind every time someone passed the isle I turned around and pretended to look at audio books)

  Then things got weird when some punk guy came into the isle I was in. (It wouldn't have been as awkward if the guy wasn't super-duper gothic/punk. <------I'm not over exaggerating!) So I automatically pretend I was already walking out of the isle then I ran back to the Young Adult section. After a couple of minutes in the YA section I saw the guy again and hid behind the shelf because...I like to be casual.


    Yeah, so, I left with Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard instead....


        After.......

When I got home I ordered Wicked online because I didn't want to feel awkward again in my home...

  So, children, if you don't want to be (more) awkward avoid doing what I made the mistake of doing. 

Whats the moral of this story?

Online shopping IS YOUR ANSWER!!!!!!!!!!!

Grave Mercy by: Robin LaFevers Review (non-spoiler)

Grave Mercy by: Robin LaFevers

Rating: 4/5
Young Adult
Published: April 3rd, 2012

Synopsis:
 Escaping from the brutality of an arranged marriage, seventeen-year-old Ismae finds sanctuary at the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of  Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts--and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must be willing to take the lives of others.
  Ismae's most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany, where she must pose as mistress to the darkly mysterious Gavriel Duval, who has fallen under a cloud of suspicion. Once there, she finds herself woefully underprepared--not only for the deadly games of love and intrigue, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death's vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart.



   I really enjoyed this book!

When I heard assassin nuns I was like, count me in! The premise just sounded unique and it intrigued me right off the bat. The story was definitely pieced together well. There was times when I was gasping. Other times when I started tearing up. And times when I was straight up snort-laughing. 
  I absolutely loved Ismae! She was such a strong, bad-a** female character. There are times in books when I am feeling anxiety over the safety of female characters because they are just straight-up not able to take care of themselves, but I never felt this with Ismae. If she was told to do something she didn't feel was right, she would't do it. If she was getting crap from other characters she would't take it. If I haven't convinced you she's awesome, I just wanted to let you know she's awesome. 
 I also liked that the romance wasn't what the story focused on. For the most part it was focused on the political aspect.

  I did really enjoy this book, but on the other hand there were some things I did not enjoy.
At times I didn't get all the political things I believe I was supposed to pick up while reading. I couldn't really keep up with all the names of the convent members, the privy council, and the Breton court and Nobility. All the names are listed at the beginning of the book but while reading I didn't want to keep stopping to try and figure out all the names. This would not have been a problem if knowing all the character names and occupations wasn't such a large part of the book. This was basically the only reason I marked the book down a star. Besides that I enjoyed the book.

I would recommend Grave Mercy to any historical fiction lovers. The book was historically accurate, besides the whole assassin aspect.(Most events that occurred over the length of the book occurred in history) I would also recommend the book to anyone who likes strong female protagonists or books with political intrigue.

The last two books Dark Triumph and Mortal Heart follow different characters from the convent (Sybella, and Annith) and I'm really interested to see what they have been up to while Ismae was out and about. :)
