blog

Book Summary: 

There’s death all around us.
We just don’t pay attention.
Until we do.

The last time Lex was happy, it was before. When she had a family that was whole. A boyfriend she loved. Friends who didn’t look at her like she might break down at any moment.

My Review: After Lex’s brother took his life, her life turn upside down. She breaks up with her boyfriends, push her friends away. Her mom send her to speak to a doctor on how she feeling. Lex just keep everything bottle up and on her doctor’s order she begin to write in a journal slowly that night of her brother’s death comes to light. Starting to slowly understand why Lex feels guilty about that night and why she gave no warning and reason for breaking off with boyfriend. You get a feeling of loss and understanding. Just trying to find closure and put life back together after such a tragic death. Can really get suck into the emotions and feelings in this book. Just remember have tissues ready in hand when diving in. Can’t give the ending away, you just have to read what happen to Lex that change her world and secrets she holds. So happy reading, bookworms!

The police don’t believe her story as it turns out she has a history of being a drunk, and her life falling a part. During this time we just keep guessing what happen with Meghan, was it her husband, or something more shocking.

The Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz

11150609_10204322749775474_4933641417504020511_n

Book Summary: 

Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon and made to live in virtual imprisonment on the Isle of the Lost. The island is surrounded by a magical force field that keeps the villains and their descendants safely locked up and away from the mainland. Life on the island is dark and dreary. It is a dirty, decrepit place that’s been left to rot and forgotten by the world.

But hidden in the mysterious Forbidden Fortress is a dragon’s eye: the key to true darkness and the villains’ only hope of escape. Only the cleverest, evilest, nastiest little villain can find it…who will it be?

Maleficent, Mistress of the Dark: As the self-proclaimed ruler of the isle, Maleficent has no tolerance for anything less than pure evil. She has little time for her subjects, who have still not mastered life without magic. Her only concern is getting off the Isle of the Lost.

Mal: At sixteen, Maleficent’s daughter is the most talented student at Dragon Hall, best known for her evil schemes. And when she hears about the dragon’s eye, Mal thinks this could be her chance to prove herself as the cruelest of them all.

Evie: Having been castle-schooled for years, Evil Queen’s daughter, Evie, doesn’t know the ins and outs of Dragon Hall. But she’s a quick study, especially after she falls for one too many of Mal’s little tricks.

Jay: As the son of Jafar, Jay is a boy of many talents: stealing and lying to name a few. Jay and Mal have been frenemies forever and he’s not about to miss out on the hunt for the dragon’s eye.

Carlos: Cruella de Vil’s son may not be bravest, but he’s certainly clever. Carlos’s inventions may be the missing piece in locating the dragon’s eye and ending the banishment for good.

Mal soon learns from her mother that the dragon’s eye is cursed and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She’ll just need a little help from her “friends.” In their quest for the dragon’s eye, these kids begin to realize that just because you come from an evil family tree, being good ain’t so bad.

My review

So popular Disney villains been lock up in a mini dome for years thanks to Beauty and the Beast idea. The dome is cut off from the world where magic is cut off and going, with their only source of food is left over stuff form good side,  Auradon. While they trap under the dome that have kids just as evil as them, so you think. Mal daughter of Maleficent, Jay son of Jafar, Carlos son of Cruella de Vill and Evie daughter of evil queen they don’t really get along with each other. Mal rules the school with Jay as her side kick. But when Evie comes in public school for the first time in year after Mal’s mom curse her for not invited her daughter to an party years ago. So you have Mal and Evie butt heads throughout the book. To get her revenge on the Evie, Mal invites Evie to a party to prank her over at Carlos. But things get out of hand when Carlos mess with an invention he made and might have open the dome a bit to let magic in. So Mal’s mother made her set out for a request to get her wand. With the help from Jay who coming along for steal from Mal, Evie so Mal can curse her when they find the wand and Carlos whose only came he is scare of Mal and Evie wanted him to come. So they set on this journey to find this wand and prove their folks they are evil like them

Meanwhile by in  Auradon, Beauty and the Beast son Prince Ben getting ready to take over the throne. But he is also unsure of himself.
