People Like Us by Dana Mele

Book Summary:

Kay Donovan may have skeletons in her closet, but the past is past, and she’s reinvented herself entirely. Now she’s a star soccer player whose group of gorgeous friends run their private school with effortless popularity and acerbic wit. But when a girl’s body is found in the lake, Kay’s carefully constructed life begins to topple.

The dead girl has left Kay a computer-coded scavenger hunt, which, as it unravels, begins to implicate suspect after suspect, until Kay herself is in the crosshairs of a murder investigation. But if Kay’s finally backed into a corner, she’ll do what it takes to survive. Because at Bates Academy, the truth is something you make…not something that happened.

My Review:

Thought the book was good. Really enjoyed the story to it. The twists and turns at the end were crazy. A body was found at a school and everyone seems to be a suspect, even the main character, Kay.

There was something about Kay that made me despise her a lot. Didn’t trust her character at all. She was hiding her own secrets and acted like a bully. She even ran her friends out of school by exposing their secrets. Being blackmailed can change a person.

Who would want to kill a poor girl in the first place? Kay? The boyfriend? Kay’s close friends? There are too many suspects to name and the twist at the end will shock you.

Book is very graphic with body counts. Seem to be appropriate for older teens. If you like slow mystery books with shocking twists, then this book could be for you. Did enjoy the read and still can’t get over that crazy ending.

{Waiting for Wednesday} Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett

Book Summary:

They call her Traitor Kate. It’s a title Kate Brighton inherited from her father after he tried to assassinate the high king years ago. Now Kate lives as an outcast, clinging to the fringes of society as a member of the Relay, the imperial courier service. Only those most skilled in riding and bow hunting ride for the Relay; and only the fastest survive, for when dark falls, the nightdrakes—deadly flightless dragons—come out to hunt. Fortunately, Kate has a secret edge: she is a wilder, born with magic that allows her to influence the minds of animals. But it’s this magic that she needs to keep hidden, as being a wilder is forbidden, punishable by death or exile. And it’s this magic that leads her to a caravan massacred by nightdrakes in broad daylight—the only survivor her childhood friend, her first love, the boy she swore to forget, the boy who broke her heart.

The high king’s second son, Corwin Tormane, never asked to lead. Even as he waits for the uror—the once-in-a-generation ritual to decide which of the king’s children will succeed him—he knows it’s always been his brother who will assume the throne. And that’s fine by him. He’d rather spend his days away from the palace, away from the sight of his father, broken with sickness from the attempt on his life. But the peacekeeping tour Corwin is on has given him too much time to reflect upon the night he saved his father’s life—the night he condemned the would-be killer to death and lost the girl he loved. Which is why he takes it on himself to investigate rumors of unrest in one of the remote city-states, only for his caravan to be attacked—and for him to be saved by Kate.

With their paths once more entangled, Kate and Corwin have to put the past behind them. The threat of drakes who attack in the daylight is only the beginning of a darker menace stirring in the kingdom—one whose origins have dire implications for Kate’s father’s attack upon the king and will thrust them into the middle of a brewing civil war in the kingdom of Rime.

So I’m excited for the release of this book. The cover and the summary is what draws me. Got a couple of months before it is release. Looking for a new fantasy then add to goodreads. It comes out May 15th.

{Arc Review} Time Bomb by Joelle Charbonneau

Book Summary:

A congressman’s daughter who has to be perfect. A star quarterback with a secret. A guy who’s tired of being ignored. A clarinet player who’s done trying to fit in. An orphaned rebel who wants to teach someone a lesson. A guy who wants people to see him, not his religion.

They couldn’t be more different, but before the morning’s over, they’ll all be trapped in a school that’s been rocked by a bombing. When they hear that someone inside is the bomber, they’ll also be looking to one another for answers.

My Review:

Book was a pretty decent read. Lots of switching back and forth between six different characters. They become trapped inside the school when a bomb goes off and one of them is the bomber.

Now Diana, Frankie, Tad, Cas, Z and Rashid fighting for their lives. Each with an secret on why they are at the school early that day. Mostly some have motives to blow up the school. They must rely on each other to escape, but who can they trust?

Book was a fast-paced read. There are some sensitive issues with the school blowing up and death for some people. With a lot of school shootings these days this book may not be for some people. Did enjoy the story and like some of the characters. But there was a lot to keep track of when switching up a person point of view every chapter. Book comes out next week and I can’t wait for the big release.

Warning: Might have triggers for some people who read this book. Seek help if you feel like harming self or other people.

{Arc Review} Genesis by Brendan Reichs

Book Summary:

Noah Livingston knows he is destined to survive.

The 64 members of Fire Lake’s sophomore class are trapped in a place where morals have no meaning, and zero rules apply. But Noah’s deaths have trained him–hardened him–to lead the strongest into the future . . . whatever that may be. And at any cost.

Min Wilder knows that survival alone isn’t enough.

Trapped in a violent world where brute force passes for leadership, it’s tempting to lay back and let everyone else fight it out. But Min’s instincts rebel against allowing others to decide who lives and who dies. She’s ready to fight for what she believes in. And against whomever might stand in her way.

My Review:

This book was crazy good. For those who have not read book one of Nemesis, don’t need to read my review. If you want to read book one my review is here, Nemesis By Brendan Reichs.

After what Noah did in the first book, I lost trust in him. He becomes a power hunger killer. After your first kill you become a different person. The only one standing in his way is Min. Can Noah redeemed himself in the end?

I like Min so much. She not wanting to kill anyone and oppose to do what the program wants. The rules changes and she might have to kill in order to survive. Will she be able to make it pass phase two?

Tack I adore him in the book so loyal to Min and trusty sidekick. Once the rules change in the society, will he become a change man like Noah?

This book is full of death and lost. So much secrets and truth hidden in the new society. Every one is out killing each other or in hiding. Who will live and die in the end? Well it’s for you to find out. Book comes out this week.

Happy Reading!!!

Broken Beautiful Heart by Kami Garcia

Book Summary:

Her heart has to break before it can open.

When star soccer player Peyton Rios receives an offer from her first-choice college, senior year starts off exactly as planned. But when Peyton uncovers her boyfriend’s dark secret, she confronts him—and finds herself falling down a flight of stairs. Peyton’s knee—and maybe her dream of going pro—is shattered. Everyone is talking: Was she pushed, or did she fall? Peyton knows the truth, even if no one believes her.

He has to let someone in before it’s too late.

With her future on the line, Peyton goes to stay with her uncle in a small Tennessee town to focus on her recovery. Dating is the last thing on her mind—until she meets sweet, sexy Owen Law.

But Peyton doesn’t trust her heart, especially when she senses that Owen is hiding something. When their secrets are finally exposed, Peyton has to decide if love is worth fighting for.

My Review:

I really liked the book. The story was heartbreaking and little empowering with facing your fears.

I liked Peyton in the book. She is head strong and stubborn. Had everything going for her until an accident change her life forever. Now she leaves her hometown behind to coop with healing, and hiding from her painful pass. Will she be able to open herself up again and let go of the past?

I adore Owen, he comes off making dumb jokes at Peyton but then has an soft side as well. He is a fighter with his own secrets and not good opening up either. With Owen, who is force to help Peyton heal from her accident. It would be a matter a time before secrets get out. Will these two be strong enough to stay together in the end?

This book has fighters in, and some sensitive subjects for younger teens. Book was just an good read and would the story over and over again. Just have some tissues ready.

Reign the Earth by A.C Gaughen

Book Summary:

Shalia is a proud daughter of the desert, but after years of devastating war with the adjoining kingdom, her people are desperate for peace. Willing to trade her freedom to ensure the safety of her family, Shalia becomes Queen of the Bonelands.

But she soon learns that her husband, Calix, is motivated only by his desire to exterminate the Elementae—mystical people who can control earth, wind, air, and fire. Even more unsettling are Shalia’s feelings for her husband’s brother, which unleash a power over the earth she never knew she possessed—a power that could get her killed. As rumors of a rebellion against Calix spread, Shalia must choose between the last chance for peace and her own future as an Elementae.

My Review:

Thought the book was an good read. The world building to it I did enjoy.

Felt bad for the main character, Shalia. She goes through rough times after marrying a man she hardly knew. Wish she could have use her hidden powers more in the book, to use and break free from Calix wrath. Hopefully in book 2 to get to see her grow more stronger.

The guard, Galen was my favorite in the book. He is so sweet and very protective of Shalia. The only one who stands up to his brother, Calix. Hope to see more of him in book two.

This book is action packed, full of magic and sensitive topic on something. Could lean towards more on older teens. I’m looking forward to see where things go for book 2.

Say you’ll Remember Me by Katie Mcgarry

Book Summary:

When Drix was convicted of a crime–one he didn’t commit–he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the new Second Chance Program, the governor’s newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society. Drix knows this is his chance to get his life back on track, even if it means being paraded in front of reporters for a while.

Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor’s daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn’t may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.

When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle’s parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix’s messy life.

But sometimes love can breach all barriers.

Fighting against a society that can’t imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves–Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence–and each other to finally get what they deserve.

My Review:

This book was so good. I always adore Katie Mcgarry books all the time. Have fallen in love with her new characters and stories in each book she writes.

Elle in the book must do everything her family say because they know what is what and she don’t. At first Elle keep changing her looks for her mom and seem annoying a bit doing prefect routine. Meeting Drix helped get her out of her shell a bit. You get to see the real Elle. How long can she hide from her folks on who she really is on the inside?

Drix the bad boy in the book, from wrong side of the tracks. He learning from his past mistakes and try to become a better person for himself and his family. When he bumps into Elle one day, both their lives change. I really like Drix in the book. Glad he becomes an change man and deep down he also have an good heart. Can Drix help Elle become her own person in the long run?

Can Elle and Drix see the good in each other and bring out their true selves in the book? Or this is another doom love story. Well you have to have out for self how it will end for these to love birds.

Happy Reading!
