Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.
Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She’s getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she’s falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.
But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

My review:  Sam was a mean girl in the book, then one night her life turns upside down when she and her friend goes missing. Only Sam turns up badly beaten and no memory on what had happen to her and Cassie. Her brother thinks she faking it and had killed Cassie. Meantime Sam tries to get her life together and remember who she was and what had happen to Cassie. Slowly she is starting to becoming a better person and is not like her old mean self at all. As Sam moving on, there still missing Cassie, she fear the worse has happen to her and she might have been involved or the person who attack them could be at large still. In the meantime Sam start falling for a guy she has picked on in the past, Carson. With his help she can slowly gets to know her old self better, but can Sam change for the better or back to her old mean ways? Once you start reading, it’s very hard to be put down. So many little twist and turns and feelings for each characters. Love the cover for the book, the music box holds a good key element for it. If you into good thrillers then pick up this book now! Happy reading!

by Morgan Matson (Goodreads Author)

It was Sloane who yanked Emily out of her shell and made life 100% interesting. But right before what should have been the most epic summer, Sloane just…disappears. All she leaves behind is a to-do list.

On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that Emily would normally never try. But what if they could bring her best friend back?

Apple picking at night? Okay, easy enough.

Dance until dawn? Sure. Why not?

Kiss a stranger? Um…

Emily now has this unexpected summer, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected), to check things off Sloane’s list. Who knows what she’ll find?

Go skinny-dipping? Wait…what?

My Review:  When summer starts, Emily best friend Sloane goes missing. One day without word, she gets a long list to do complete and she might be able to see friend again. Along the way to finishing up the list she makes new friends and doing so many new things thanks to that list, Emily thinks she getting close to finding Sloane each time she cross an item off the list. You get lots of flashbacks of the two friends, when Emily does something from the list. Emily was always living in Sloane shadow, never could do anything fun and daring before she got the list. Slowly she starts to come out of her shell and maybe the truth about Sloane come to light in the meantime. If you love best friends, a little romance then this book might be up your ally. So happy reading!

Action, suspense, and romance whirlpool dangerously in this cinematic saga, a blend of District 9 and The Outsiders

My Review: I dive into this book without knowing what’s it was about. Saw the pretty cover at book con and it was free. So just grab it and then begin reading. I thought it was pretty good start to the series. The book starts off with Lyric and her friends are force to go to school with some half fish people call Alphas. So when the Alphas show up for no reason Coney Island, no human took a liking to them. They would get bully if they even talk to or fall in love with one. So when Lyric is force into being friends with Fathom the price of the alphas, her family pass starts coming into light, as she is also hiding a big secret herself from everyone even her friends. So as you get some actions, mix in with some romance you got yourself story. With a killer cliffhanger you will be dying to get your hands on book 2 which won’t be out for a long time, folks. Again must read for those who love anything scifi, So Happy reading, My fellow book worms!

Inside By Maria V. Snyder

Inside (Insiders #1-2)

by Maria V. Snyder (Goodreads Author)
The world of Inside is simple. Do your job, stay out of the way and don’t dream of anything better. Because as every Scrub knows, there are no other options.

Until Trella—the Queen of the Pipes, as some call her—gets involved with a revolution that will rock her world….

Trella was just doing a favor for a friend—her only friend. Hiding an injured man from the Pop Cops seemed easy enough—though dangerous. But then she discovered that the myths of Outside might be real….

Being Inside’s hero only left Trella with more work. Ducking those responsibilities, she continued to explore her stark world—and found something she never expected. Strangers. From Outside…

My Review: 
So this is like 2 books in one. The first book is call Inside in It about a girl name Trella who is the queen of the pipes. The world is divided in uppers and lowers. The lowers works in the pipes making sure everything is working good and the uppers living a comfortable life on top so the lowers think. When Trella friend brings her to see an prophet about knowing the way out of this world they live in call the gateway, many try to find a way out but it just turn into old stories. Trella is not call the queen of the pipes for no reason, she knows every inch and when she gets curious about this gateway, she starts helping the guy out. In order to help him out she bumps into a upper and their worlds turn upside down. The views on what’s really going on how things are worked are broken. Can she really find this gateway and see what’s more to life on the inside or just stuck being divided not knowing whats out there? Well this book is a quick read and enjoy every minute of it. You love divergent, hunger games, then you might enjoy this book. It’s two book in one. Will review book 2, beware of spoilers a little in next review…..
Outside in:  This is the second book to inside in. If you have yet read the first book I suggest you do. Now that they have found the gateway everyone is so out of place. The uppers and lowers don’t know what to do, and Trella does not want to lead anymore. The world has turn upside down and no one whats to do while someone on the inside trying to ruin everything that Trella worked hard to find. So has happen in a short about of time but It high pace action and fun. A must read for those you love books like Hunger Games and all. Well can’t  give to much away. So Happy Reading!
