bella4

Book Summary: 
Andie had it all planned out.

When you are a politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised yourself, you learn everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future.

Important internship? Check.

Amazing friends? Check.

Guys? Check (as long as we’re talking no more than three weeks).

But that was before the scandal. Before having to be in the same house with her dad. Before walking an insane number of dogs. That was before Clark and those few months that might change her whole life.

Because here’s the thing—if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected.

And where’s the fun in that?

My Review:  

Adie life has everything going for her, great friends, awesome internship for summer break, but being a politician daughter has it’s draw back, like a father who is hardly around. When a scandal happens during her father time in office, Andie summer plans are turn upset down, she lost her summer plans and has to keep self busy by  walking dogs. Before Summer ends can Andie get herself together in time? Well you just have to find out for yourself. This book is a great summer read this year.. So sit back and enjoy the ride. Happy Reading!

Ivory and Bone By Julie Eshbaugh

Julie

Book Summary: 

Ivory and Bone (Ivory and Bone #1)
by Julie Eshbaugh (Goodreads Author)
3.99  ·  Rating Details  ·  232 Ratings  ·  74 Reviews
A prehistoric fantasy—with allusions to Pride and Prejudice.

Hunting, gathering, and keeping his family safe—that’s the life seventeen-year-old Kol knows. Then bold, enigmatic Mya arrives from the south with her family, and Kol is captivated. He wants her to like and trust him, but any hopes of impressing her are ruined when he makes a careless—and nearly grave—mistake. However, there’s something more to Mya’s cool disdain…a history wrought with loss that comes to light when another clan arrives. With them is Lo, an enemy from Mya’s past who Mya swears has ulterior motives.

As Kol gets to know Lo, tensions between Mya and Lo escalate until violence erupts. Faced with shattering losses, Kol is forced to question every person he’s trusted. One thing is for sure: this was a war that Mya or Lo—Kol doesn’t know which—had been planning all along.

My Review:

So the story is about Kol, soon to be head clan leader. Kol has this kas heart you take a liking to, he mean well. Then his clan is tries to make friends with other clan members, that where Kol bumps into Mya, a head strong girl and stubborn, kinda stuck in the past. Something happen to the clan 5 years ago that almost went to war with Kol clan not something Mya can forget about. As they keep meeting  Mya distrust grows a bit. Will she get over the fear and let Kol in? Well you have to read for yourself to get some of the answers. Its a old classic love story set back in the day with action and another war is could be in the making. This book has a awesome symbol on the image so you read the book to understand more of the image. Book comes out June 7th. So leaving you off with a Happy Reading….

Jennifer L. Armentrout Signing Event

jen4

Sorry have not posted about this sooner. Computer has to be checked out, but I am back. So last Sunday my Barnes and Nobles host the famous Jennifer L. Armentrout. She was super awesome and sadly only about 40 people show up to it. Thought it was going to be huge deal. She did a lot of Q and A and then dive into signing. Jennifer is a big fan of Supernatural series and walking dead. Also she brings to her signing events is mini Sam and Dean from Supernatural.. Really need to see that series myself.

 

 

 

Jennifer also has written the Covenant Series, along with its spin off the Titan Series. Which I own on my nook. 

Summary of the Series: 

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals–well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.

Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she’s crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn’t her biggest problem–staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is.

If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

Titan-Banner

Summary:

The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.

Book 1 in the new adult paranormal TITAN series, spin-off to the best selling COVENANT series.

Mostly she had written over 30 books you need to check out. Have yet dive into the rest of Jennifer world but hope someday read rest of her series. She mainly there to promote her new stand alone book. Which I will read later this month and review it. bella3

Book Summary: 

For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory “Mouse” Dodge, it’s a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime.

Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she’s imagined, there’s one she never dreamed of—that she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.

It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with the lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory faces a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants, and the truths that need to be heard.

In the end it was a nice time at the event and got to hang out with some book worms like me for lunch and saw a movie. During the event we got a nice surprise guest listening in on the the event and getting her book sign also, The famous Sarah J Maas. Will leave you with a nice group picture of everyone even Sarah J Maas in the back ground. Happy Reading! jen5

Rochester, NY Teen Book Fest

logo

So while everyone is away at book con and bea this year, I went with a friend to Rochester, NY for a huge signing event. There were about 34 authors. They have it every year. Got to say is was so much fun going and talking to the authors. Even before the authors came out I won an free book. Been so tired after the long weekend so finally blogging.

book

Got myself the squeal to the undertow series by Micheal Buckley. Did a nice review on my blog here once.  Here the summary to the first book undertow: 

Undetow Summary: 
Sixteen-year-old Lyric Walker’s life is forever changed when she witnesses the arrival of 30,000 Alpha, a five-nation race of ocean-dwelling warriors, on her beach in Coney Island. The world’s initial wonder and awe over the Alpha quickly turns ugly and paranoid and violent, and Lyric’s small town transforms into a military zone with humans on one side and Alpha on the other. When Lyric is recruited to help the crown prince, a boy named Fathom, assimilate, she begins to fall for him. But their love is a dangerous one, and there are forces on both sides working to keep them apart. Only, what if the Alpha are not actually the enemy? What if they are in fact humanity’s only hope of survival? Because the real enemy is coming. And it’s more terrifying than anything the world has ever seen.

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

Now onto the fun stuff waiting in line to get all my books sign. Meet about 6 authors I wanted to meet and talk to some I did not have the books for yet. Some authors I meet are Rachel Hawkins, Scott Westerfeld, Ellen Hopkins, Jennifer Donnelly, Ridley Pearson, Tamora Pierce, Suzanne Young, Laurie Halse Anderson… They were all so nice.

Walk the Edge By Katie Mcgarry

Katie

Summary: 

One moment of recklessness will change their worlds.

Smart. Responsible. That’s seventeen-year-old Breanna’s role in her large family, and heaven forbid she put a toe out of line. Until one night of shockingly un-Breanna-like behavior puts her into a vicious cyber-bully’s line of fire—and brings fellow senior Thomas “Razor” Turner into her life.

Razor lives for the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, and good girls like Breanna just don’t belong. But when he learns she’s being blackmailed over a compromising picture of the two of them—a picture that turns one unexpected and beautiful moment into ugliness—he knows it’s time to step outside the rules.

And so they make a pact: he’ll help her track down her blackmailer, and in return she’ll help him seek answers to the mystery that’s haunted him—one that not even his club brothers have been willing to discuss. But the more time they spend together, the more their feelings grow. And suddenly they’re both walking the edge of discovering who they really are, what they want, and where they’re going from here. (less)

Hardcover, 426 pages

My Review: 

The story starts with Razor, the bad boy in a club call the reign of terrors. He does odd jobs for them but when his mom passed away he starts to questions what the club is hiding about her death. One day he bumps into Breanna,  who is smart and comes from a big family. Who seems to always forgetting she is even around. Breanna knows its wrong to hang with a reign of terror member, but when she is blackmailed into doing a paper for a jock their worlds collide. Razor starts hanging out more with Breanna as she helps him discover the night his mother passed away and in return he is protecting her from the cyber bully jock. Can Breanna get over her fear of Razor being in this club and let him help her out? Is there more to Razor then being this bad boy? Slowly both their worlds collide and family and friends will slowly tear them a part from each other.  This is a face pace book with lots of love, actions and willing to sacrifice all in the name of love. So many emotions roll up in one. If you yet read any Katie Mccgarry, well I suggest you go grab her books and start reading now. So Happy Reading!

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Bella

Summary:

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.
What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.
What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.
(less)
Hardcover, 369 pages

My Review:

The story starts with a girl name Louisa Clark, who is like a plain Jane. Mostly had the same job for years and dating the same guy, Patrick for years also. After she loses her job, she force into being a caregiver to a Will Traynor,considering the fact she has no work experience as a caregiver.. Will was such a player and had everything going for him, a fancy job and travel the world, then he gets into a bad accident. That leaves him  wheelchair bond without the use of his legs or hands a bit. When first starting the job, she hated every moment with him. Will is mean and cold hearted at first, never wanted her around in first place. Slowly he starts letting her in a bit and make her feel comfortable working there. That is until Louisa found out a family secret. Will she keep her job knowing this secret?  Or fall up back into her same boring routine? This book got a bit of a love connection going on and so many feelings roll up into one. Secrets are exposed and a life hangs in the balance. How will it all end? You must pick up yourself a copy to find out before the movie hits the big screen in June. Happy ending and enjoy the trailer.
