Random by Charong Chow

Released on:December 19th,2011

After falling for the new guy at school, sixteen-year-old Tierney uncovers the truth surrounding the drug-fueled death of her best friend, Jeremy. Random, a contemporary expose of teenage life in Los Angeles, begins with a not-so-innocent truancy and builds - through complex, interwoven relationships - to a shock ending that sets Tierney up as a young female noir protagonist.

My Review-
Random was overall ok. I was excited to read the book because it has a really good plot but I was kinda disappointed. Mrs.Chow has a different writing style it's kind of one that you love or hate. The beginning was a little strange I thought it was kind of unnatural but the last chapter was probably the best in the book. It's very sad that this is based off a real life event in Mrs.Chow's life. Thanks for the copy Mrs.Chow
Happy Reading and don't forget to follow me on twitter and goodreads!

Emily wished she was invisible. But after moving to a new town with her dad, a charming boy makes it impossible for her to disappear. Despite her feelings of unworthiness, Emily soon finds herself drawn to the safety of Jake's world.

Good looking and the star of the hockey team, Jake has a lot going for him. What most people don't see is the difficult life he has at home. When quiet Emily steals his heart, Jake vows to help her discover she is worthy of love.

Just when the two of them realize the sweetness of their relationship, they are put to the test. Only together can they overcome their haunted pasts to fight for a future together.

 My Review

Sweetness was a very sweet story about high school senior Emily, who has gone through multiple traumatic experiences in her life. Her mother practically abandoned her and she moved into her father's house. There at her she meets the hottie of the school Jake who is the star hockey player. Emily was very skeptical of Jake in the beginning. She wondered why he talked to her and asked so many questions. After all, most people think she's a freak. As their relationship develops Jake's seven year old brother Drake is introduced and immediately him and Emily have a connection. Jake is very surprised to see how carefree she is with Drake and wonders why she's quiet and reserved with him. In the end it's one of those classic love stories.

I really liked the characters in this book. Jake and Drake were definitely my favorites. The one thing that I loved about Emily was how she learned to love life again and understand people are going to bring you down. Overall I really enjoyed this book was a really fun and quick read. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars! Thank you Ms.Paige!

Newlyweds Cameron and Liesel Martin aren't able to celebrate their wedding bliss for long. Not only is Liesel unexpectedly pregnant... they're also facing the end of humanity!

Here it is at last... the third and final epic chapter of the Birthday trilogy... Happy Birthday to You!

   This is the third and final story in the Birthday trilogy. This one was especially emotional because everything was coming to a close and the world could've possibly ended. Cameron has been through aging to 80 and almost dying and almost dying at the age of 1. Now everyone else is aging a year each day and Lisel and Cameron are the only one who can stop it. I wish I could tell you all what happens in the end but I don't want to ruin it. This was not my perfect ending but it was still a good ending. I rate this 4 out of 5 stars because it made me cry my eyes out.Thanks Mr.Rowe for the copy and all the other books!

Happy Reading y'all!

Set against the fast-paced, winner-take-all world of Silicon Valley, where today’s software geek is tomorrow’s billionaire, The Start-Up chronicles the meteoric rise of Adam and Amelia Dory, a talented brother and sister team. With only each other to rely on, the naive eighteen-year-olds must make their way through a treacherous world of money, power, and envy.

This suspenseful and exciting episode is the third installment in an ongoing serial story.
     This is the third installment of the Start-Up series about two siblings who are making it big in the tech world. I was excited too read this one because book 2 had a cliffhanger at the end. And boy does this one have as well. Amelia and Adam Dory travel to the beautiful Hawaii to do some business. During this time they meet competitors,learn about their business and learn about everyone's love life. Overall I enjoyed the book and I like the series well enough to keep on reading but I don't discourage you to try them out. I rate this 3 out of 5 stars. Thank you Ms.Hayes for a copy!

Happy reading,

Review: Wildefire

Wildefire by Karsten Knight
(#1 Wildefire Series)

Published by:Simon&Schuster
Released on:July 26th,2011
Pages:393 Hardcover
Buy here

Every flame begins with a spark.
Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.

  I know I am totally late on the Wildefire boat but better late than never:
Ashline Wilde or commonly known as Ash(which I think is better fit for her) is our main character. Her older sister Eve comes back into her life and shakes up her semi-normal life. Something terrible happens and Ash has to transfer to a boarding school in the middle of the Californian forest. Finally finding peace at school after making the tennis team and making new friends Ash thinks life is is perfect now. After a terrifying encounter along with some of her new friends she finds out that are all mythology characters being reincarnated after their deaths.WOW!

I thought the idea of this book was really interesting and also because the main character and I share the same name!I also think its kind of interesting because Ashline is an Irish name and shes Polynesian. I really like Ash mainly because of her kick-assness and sarcasm. And the other supporting characters as well, they all added amazingness to the story. Also Colt,her love interest sound amazingly wonderful! And man can I say that last chapter was freaking amazing, wow what a bunch of cliffhangers! I am so excited for Embers&Echoes which comes this summer. Hopefully it will be published around my birthday!I rated this 4.5 out of 5 stars!

Happy reading and have a good week!

Review:Notes to Self

Notes to Self by Avery Sawyer

Released on:November 20th,2011
Pages:103 PDF version
Buy here

Two climbed up. Two fell down.

One woke up.

In the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury, Robin Saunders has to relearn who she is and find out what happened the night everything changed

 *I received this book for review from author*

Notes to Self was an amazing story. It was so full of raw emotion and I think Avery Sawyer wrote the book wonderfully. Robin Saunders experiences a terrible situation with her best friend Emily.The tag line is two climbed up.two fell woke up.Robin is left with this terrible guilt after the accident when Emily is still comatose and Robin is awake. Life was truly sucking for her; her classmates blamed HER for the accident, her father hasn't been in the picture in years and doesn't know about the accident and Robin can't seem to remember a thing about the night and parts of her life. But things lighten up after a while and the story ends on a very happy note. I loved this book a lot and I think it has a very valuable message. We all take the little things for granted; waking up every morning,eating,seeing our loved ones,going outside to see the world and so many other every day things. Robin made such a valid point about appreciating the little things. Anyways I rated this book 5 out of 5 stars, this book is a really heart felt read and truly makes you think about life.

Happy Reading,

Review:Where She Went

Where She Went by Gayle Forman
(#2 If I Stay)

Published by:Dutton Juvenile
Released on:April 5th,2011
Pages:260 Hardcover
Buy here

It's been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.

Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.

 Sorry for the hiatus but when its close to the end of the year I'm a busy girl. Anyways about a week ago I finished Where She Went which is the sequel to If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I loved it, even more than If I Stay. Instead of Mia's point of view we get a look inside Adam Wildes "crazy celebrity" life. We learn that things aren't so,what's the saying?Cherry?Peachy?As it all seems. One night while both in New York they meet and wander across New York where things are discussed about where their relationship went and where it stands now. Adam is furious that Mia left but yet still understands. Mia is of course sorry and wants to reconnect and talk about his life. Adam isn't even talking to the band,his girlfriend is always off doing her own thing. And when he's alone all he can think about it her and what happened. Overall it was a great book I rate it 5 out of 5 stars!

Have a Happy New Year!
