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.

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

19424195_10209820551777088_6096792999197786765_n

Book Summary:

Her story is a phenomenon. Her life is a disaster.

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try.

Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.

But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.

My Review:

Eliza is a shy girl and keeps mostly to herself and hardly have any friend. Once she gets online she transform into Ladyconstellation her popular webcomic with millions of users following each day. When new book Wallace enters Eliza life she starts slowly coming out her shell a bit and have a bit of Ladyconstellation to enter the real world. This book is pretty fun and cute in it’s own way. Love the story Ladyconstellation makes on the webcomic and the growing up Eliza does in the book. For long she had kept Ladyconstellation a secret from the world but if word gets out, what will happen? Eliza reminds me of who I am now a bit. I am this shy girl in the world that hide in books or social media. So can relate a lot to how Eliza feel. Get to know  Eliza more for yourself and wonder what stories she will share with you. Happy Reading!

The Traitor’s Kiss (Traitor’s Trilogy #1) by Erin Beaty

18893036_10209633532021711_7833925162268600297_n

Book Summary:

An obstinate girl who will not be married.
A soldier desperate to prove himself.
A kingdom on the brink of war.

With a sharp tongue and an unruly temper, Sage Fowler is not what they’d call a lady―which is perfectly fine with her. Deemed unfit for marriage, Sage is apprenticed to a matchmaker and tasked with wrangling other young ladies to be married off for political alliances. She spies on the girls―and on the soldiers escorting them.

As the girls’ military escort senses a political uprising, Sage is recruited by a handsome soldier to infiltrate the enemy ranks. The more she discovers as a spy, the less certain she becomes about whom to trust―and Sage becomes caught in a dangerous balancing act that will determine the fate of her kingdom.

My Review:

On Sage matching day, thanks to her big mouth, she don’t get match with anyone. Instead she ends up helping out with the matchmaker matching up people and getting details she needs to find their matches. During her trip with the ladies and the matchmaker she is to spy on everyone and pair them up. Little does she know the top guard don’t trust and been keeping watchful eye on her. Slowly her and the guard keep butting heads with each other, while in meantime there seems to be a war going on. With Sage attention to details and spying can help save everyone? With so much going on in the book you don’t know who to trust at all. This is somewhat slow but I think other readers may enjoy it. If they love some war and love in the mix. The cover to the book is a very pretty that had draw me at first. This book is for people who love some action and misadventures in love might come to enjoy this book. So Happy Reading!

Book Summary:

In the sequel to Ivory and Bone—the prehistoric fantasy novel that New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman described as a “richly crafted world of life-and-death stakes”—the story shifts to Mya’s viewpoint as vengeful adversaries force her to flee the life she once knew.

After surviving the chaotic battle that erupted after Lo and the Bosha clan attacked, now Mya is looking ahead to her future with Kol. All the things that once felt so uncertain are finally falling into place. But the same night as Kol and Mya’s betrothal announcement, Mya’s brother Chev reveals his plan to marry his youngest sister Lees to his friend Morsk. The only way to avoid this terrible turn of events, Morsk informs Mya when he corners her later, is for Mya to take Lees’ place and marry him herself.

Refusing to marry anyone other than her beloved, and in an effort to protect her sister, Mya runs away to a secret island with Lees. And though it seems like the safest place to hide until things back home blow over, Mya soon realizes she’s been followed. Lurking deep in the recesses of this dangerous place are rivals from Mya’s past whose thirst for revenge exceeds all reason.

With the lives of her loved ones on the line, Mya must make a move before the enemies of her past become the undoing of her future. (less)

18622151_10209525002388538_5419224310597902909_n

Book Summary:

The only daughter of a prominent samurai, Mariko has always known she’d been raised for one purpose and one purpose only: to marry. Never mind her cunning, which rivals that of her twin brother, Kenshin, or her skills as an accomplished alchemist. Since Mariko was not born a boy, her fate was sealed the moment she drew her first breath.

So, at just seventeen years old, Mariko is sent to the imperial palace to meet her betrothed, a man she did not choose, for the very first time. But the journey is cut short when Mariko’s convoy is viciously attacked by the Black Clan, a dangerous group of bandits who’ve been hired to kill Mariko before she reaches the palace.

The lone survivor, Mariko narrowly escapes to the woods, where she plots her revenge. Dressed as a peasant boy, she sets out to infiltrate the Black Clan and hunt down those responsible for the target on her back. Once she’s within their ranks, though, Mariko finds for the first time she’s appreciated for her intellect and abilities. She even finds herself falling in love—a love that will force her to question everything she’s ever known about her family, her purpose, and her deepest desires.

My Review:

Mariko is a train samurai by her brother, on her way to her wedding she gets attacks. Now she must go into hiding and pretend to pass as a boy to find out who wants her dead and why. She joins the black clan hoping to find what she needs. With her brother slowly tailing behind her, will Mariko have enough to get the truth before it’s to late? This is book is so much fun and very hard to put down. With full of action and maybe a little romance you can dive right in. Enter the world of the samurai and find out the truth on who wanted Mariko dead and is the black clan really such bad people? So enter the warrior and discover the truth for yourself and Happy Reading!

BookCon 2017

So weekend I got a chance to hang out with some book nerd and score some free books. Mostly of the time been waiting in line scoring some books and chatting it up with fellow book nerds. Despite penguin house crowd control a mess I did met some authors and got books sign. Here are some authors I did meet…

 

 

I did bump into another author but did not get a picture with. At first had no idea she was a author. I was a dumb and ask her if she was V.E Schwab and then we got to talking and will be seeing her again for another signing event at my local book store. Which I am so happy to go to. It was crazy getting Wonder Woman and Warcross arcs. The crowd control and the guards did they best but I could not even score a ticket to it. By the end of the day I luck out with someone who had an extra Warcross and we traded books. So happy to get my Warcross and is being lend Wonder Woman arc. Hardly brought any books and everything just got for free. Lots of totes was very helpful and being VIP was useful. Hope everyone had a good time at book con. If you made out with hardly not much or not what you wanted, don’t be upset. You got to experience meeting new people and checking out new books you never read before. Remember whatever arcs you get please do not sell them on ebay. They are not not meant to be sold. Also if you love the book arc so much buy the book when it comes out buy it to help make the author a profit. They did to make a living also. So Happy Reading! 18882278_1546095502131855_951462488690075756_n
