Review Uglies By: Scott Westerfeld

Uglies (Uglies, #1)Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So as for my very first Dystopian book I give this 5 Stars! I loved it! It was a bit slow at first but it started getting better and better with every page which was awesome. My favorite characters where Tally & David. I loved there little romance and I really hope that If she turns pretty like she planned to in the end that David rescues and has his mom cure her, because I love them as a couple they fit together so perfectly it seems. As they say opposites attract =) At first when Tally found out she had to be a spy to become pretty I was so on board with the whole thing because I wanted her to be able to be with her parents and Peris. But then when she got there and we met David I did a complete 180 and I wanted her to stay in the smoke and not betray them which is why I was glad when they kissed and she decided to burn her locket. I was so confused by the next chapter when the invasion happened I was like WHAT!! SHE DESTROYED IT HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN!! I tried thinking back to when she first arrived at the smoke to see if like any clues were there as to how it happened, but then I read when Dr. Cable said if it got destroyed we’d come get you and that made my heart sink because I knew then that it was Tally’s fault, even though she didn’t mean too. I was so excited when she crawled into the cave and David was there it was like a total miracle =) Hmm what else is there to say.. Knowing me I thought that I would be all upset because Tally & Shay weren’t friends anymore because Shay figured everything out but I didn’t really care much. I was much more intrigued with David & Tally’s relationship then I was with her and Shays friendship. That might sound bad but it’s how I felt! Well I hope you enjoyed my review pretty please and thank you if you do leave your comments below =)

Click: An Online Love StoryClick: An Online Love Story by Lisa Becker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

** Spoiler Alert** So i just won this e-book on Saturday i think it was. I started reading it late Sunday night and just finished it a few minutes ago. I adored it! I didn’t think i’d be able to read a love story because i recently just went through a break up with my boyfriend of 3 years, so i didn’t think i would be able too. But i was very wrong i couldn’t put the book down. I laughed when it was appropriate and i got upset when a couple crappy things happened to the main character Renee, But i still loved it. Now usually in the books i read i don’t like all the characters but in this one i really liked them all. Renee, Mark, Shelley, Ashley, and then Ethan. And i have to say Renee and Ethan were so cute together. I was so surprised when i found out that Ethan was THE CUDDLER!! Omg i was so afraid that they were going to break up and that Renee and Shelley wouldn’t be friends anymore, but that didn’t happen and i’m so glad it didn’t!! I think it’s cool that Renee had so much luck with the online dating thing. I think if there’s going to be a sequel it should be Marks story about how the whole thing is for him. I think that’d be pretty cool, but i’m not saying i don’t want to know what happens with Renee & Ethan because i really really do! But maybe her’s can be like a third book or just little parts in the second book just like Mark had in the first book! Well i hope you enjoyed my review!! Leave comments down below!!!

The Book ThiefThe Book Thief by Markus Zusak

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So this book started off a little slow, but in the end i of course loved it. At first I was confused i didn’t know what was going on with Liesel, i wasn’t sure if she was the book thief or if someone else was. I wasn’t sure about Rosa I didn’t like her very much in the beginning. I’d have to say that my favorite character was probably Hans. He was so good to Liesel even though she wasn’t even his own daughter. I loved that he sat in her room with her when she had nightmares and wet her bed night after night, and slept in the chair next to her bed while she slept, and taught her too read, kept her secretes from Rosa. He did so much for her, he was awesome!! I thought the story was going to be a bit more sad. I mean there was parts where i teared up like when Rudy died, and her parents. Also when she saw Max along with all of the other Jews. But i was expecting something awful like every other chapter. I’m not sure why i expected that but i did. Liesel was very lucky, she got fed by her parents, her dad was always there, she had Rudy as a best friend, and she got to read in the Mayors library from time to time which was cool. I don’t know what else to say about this book other then that i just flat out loved it!! Tell me what you thought about this book in comments below!!!

The Gift of Illusion: A Paranormal ThrillerThe Gift of Illusion: A Paranormal Thriller by Richard Brown

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So i won this e-book on Sunday. I started reading it Monday morning, and finished it around 8 PM last night. Thar’s pretty quick for me considering im a slowish reader. Anyway I really loved this book, and i actually emailed the author telling him i loved it which was awesome. I could not put this book down the whole time i was reading it I could not put it down. When i first found out about the book it was on someone else’s blog, and i read the description, and i was like wow this sounds really good. So when i got it i was so excited to read, a couple of times i almost cried there was a couple of sad parts. I’d have to say my favorite character had to be Issac i loved that he had such a tragedy happen to him in the past, and he was still working and he still had like a smart alec tone to the way he talked to some people especially his partner Simmons. I was really sad that he died by the way because he was really starting to do good. But i’d rather him die then Amy, because you know that just would of crushed Issac. A part that really freaked me out was when Issac put the gun to himself. Oh man i knew that he really wasn’t going to do it but it still made me nervous that he would. I’m glad that he didn’t do it he’s a great character, and a really really great dad. I can’t wait to read more of Richard Brown’s Work!!!

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1)City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So i just finished The City of Bones, and i have to say i fell in love with the plot and the characters! My favorite i’d have to say is probably Jace just because he was so mysterious, and he was the type that like nothing seemed to be able to hurt him. But then by the end of the book Clary could see in his eyes that he was hurting. At first i thought oh it’s just going to be one of those books where the two main characters fall in love Blah Blah Blah. But i was very surprised when i found out that Jace & Clary are actually siblings!! Omg i freaked out!! I was reading and then i found out Valentine was Clary’s dad, and i was like wow, then i found out he was Jace’s dad too which i didn’t believe at first but then i realized it was true. So then i thought what’s next your going to tell me that Jocelyn is Jace’s mother too? I almost died when i found out! I felt so bad for both Jace, and Clary because you could tell how much they were starting to like each other, and then they find out they’re brother & sister? That’s gotta be tough. But for Jace, he thought that he knew his dad he thought his dad had been killed right in front of him but really his dad was alive, and someone very evil all along. When he started showing anger towards Jocelyn for abandoning him i was like “Oh! somebody better tell him she thought he was dead right now!!!” I was extremely excited when Clary finally told him, and he started to see the evil in his father. The poor guy, i’m surprised he didn’t break down and cry. I would’ve but after reading the book you know Jace is a really strong character!! Now we all know that Clary isn’t the only one who loves Jace. Did anyone else see that coming? Alec being gay, usually i would of but since Alec was all rude, and jerkish to Clary it never crossed my mind, but then i thought about gay guys are going to be nice unless! your trying to take their men! I’m not saying Clary was trying to take Jace from anyone but you could tell there was something there between Jace, and Clary. So i could see how that would hurt Alec in the long run, I’m very glad they made up in the end though!! Omg i have so much more to say!! when Luke told Clary to never contact him i almost started crying myself imagine how it must have killed her! She grew up with him as her father figure, and then to have him tell her not to talk to him, i wouldn’t have been able to handle it. And last but not least Isabelle. She hmm she made me nervous in the beginning i thought oh no! this is going to be a fight over Jace, and Isabelle is going to win and it’s going to be a war. So when i found out that they’re more like brother and sister i was relieved because now Clary & Jace could be together. Wrong again looks like nobody can be together in this book! Well in the next books i really hope that Clary & Jace have a good brother & sister relationship. I hope that Clary comes to her senses and figures out she’s madly in love with Simon =), and i hope that when and if Clary’s mom wakes up that her and Luke can be together like they should have been when they were kids..

Awakened (House of Night, #8)Awakened by P.C. Cast

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

So i just finished Awakened and i didn’t like it as much as the rest of the series because some of it confused me but i still liked it enough to wanna keep going with this series. So many things shocked me about this book. I was so definitely not prepared for Jack of all people to die!! He was like my second or third favorite character i loved him!! I was so sad he definitely did not deserve to die. I swear every book makes me hate Neferet more and more. I mean in the last two books she’s caused poor Zoey so much pain. First she kills her first love Heath, who’s shes been in love with since grade school, and he was also her human consort. Then she goes ahead and kills Jack who’s one of her closest friends. Then she goes and kills her mom! Just when her mom finally decides she wants to have a relationship with her daughter again Neferet decides to kill her! This lady is a real witch!! This was a crazy crazy addition to the series. There’s so much to talk about. But the two things i’m glad about are that 1. Zoey and Stark are still together and in love. But the only thing is ever since Kalona breathed life into him he’s been acting very strange!! You can find out what he did when you read the book! 2. I’m glad that Stevie Rae and Rephiam got to be together because i could tell she really did love him!! You’ll also have to read the book to see what Nyx does to Rephiam!! I was so excited!! But i think that’s it i don’t want to give away any more spoilers!!!

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow… I really loved this book. I tried to read it once in eighth grade but i only read the first few pages and decided i didn’t like it. That was a huge mistake. I enjoyed this book so much!! I loved all the characters especially Lissa, Rose, and Dimitri. I like the whole concept of the story, because usually in vampire stories the vampire has a hard time resisting blood. But in this story they still have to drink blood but they don’t attack people for it which is cool. I like that Lissa is able to have a best friend who isn’t a vampire. Now for the romantic relationships. When i was first introduced to Dimitri i thought he was just some guardian, and i didn’t care much, but as i got into the story i started liking him more and more. By the end of the book i wanted him and rose to be together so bad but i know it wouldn’t work out, there would be way to many obsticals in their relationship. But i’m still secretly hoping they get together in the next books, which i cannot wait to read!!! I’m glad that Lissa, and Rose took Mia down even though i’m pretty sure she’ll be back with a vengeance but i’m sure they’ll be ready for that. Overall i’m really glad i gave this series a second chance because i love it!!!

I Like It Like That (Gossip Girl, #5)I Like It Like That by Cecily von Ziegesar

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love these books. They’re such an easy read!!! I love to be able to actually curl up on the couch and hold the book because i can’t always do that if i’m reading a big fat book. I’ve been reading this series for awhile now and i’ve fallen for it! I love the books and i love the TV series! Which is odd because I’m the type of person who wants to always read the book before i see the movie or the TV show but in this case i started watching the show first, and i still loved the books which is pretty good, because its hard to find a book where its exactly the same as the show or movie. I hate hate hate reading a book and then watching the show or movie and it’s completely different! Like for instence Vampire Diaries, I read the books, and then started watching the show, and so many things were different it made me so mad but i still love both the show and the book! So it’s sort of hard to write a review on this book because every chapter is something else so the only thing i have to say is i can’t wait to read the next book and find out the following

*Will N and B get back together?
*Will S find someone to love?
*Will V and D forgive eachother each other and live unhappily ever after?
*Will we hear more from G? Do we want to?
*Will J and L figure it out? Does she want to?
*Will C come out?
*Will I?

Lol that is the ending of book # 5 written by Cecily von Ziegesar so dont think i wrote it because i think the author would be a bit mad!! Thanks for reading!!

Wow just wow first I’d like to say this is probably the first review your going to see because again I won this online. You cant actually get it in stores until September 27, 2011. So anyway I really liked this book, and I cant wait to read the next book, but I know I’ll be waiting awhile. I love the characters my favorite would have to be Kieran. At first it was Waverly but at the very end I changed my mind. (literarily the last chapter I changed my mind) But I wont tell you what made me change my mind because well that would ruin the entire book and I sooo wouldn’t do that. So when you’ve finished reading the book feel free to come ask why I changed my mind incase you don’t already know =) Throughout the whole book I thought Kieran was a very strong character and that hasn’t changed I think now that I’ve finished the book he’s even stronger in my eyes. Overall the book is a little strange because its not based on earth much at all which was very interesting to read because you don’t read many books with a setting like that. Anyway I give props to the author Amy Kathleen Ryan. She has a wonderful style of writing and im going to look into reading more of her great books!! I hope you agree.

When I first saw this book I thought ehhh written by an actress probably not the best. But then when I actually started reading it I changed my mind. This book is very very well written and I enjoyed it a lot!!! I was into the whole plot, and I was excited because you know sometimes when you start new series and your not sure what they’re about they kind of seem boring to you until you find out what’s going on and you get into it. But here I was into it right away and I didn’t have to wait for any explanation on what the book was about. I loved Clea’s Character at first she kind of seemed closed and she had her guard up but by the end of the book I totally got to know her which was pretty cool. Now in my opinion I think she would of been perfect with Ben even though she had to be with Sage because of the story line, but I think it would have been soooo cute if they were together, Even though it got my heart pumping when her and sage were together. The only reason why I went with Ben is because of what happened with Clea & Sage he really hurt her and even though I don’t completely understand why it still made me angry with him. But overall I really did love this book!!
