{Arc Review} Not If I Save You First by Ally Carter

Book Summary:

Maddie thought she and Logan would be friends forever. But when your dad is a Secret Service agent and your best friend is the president’s son, sometimes life has other plans. Before she knows it, Maddie’s dad is dragging her to a cabin in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness.

No phone.
No Internet.
And not a single word from Logan.

Maddie tells herself it’s okay. After all, she’s the most popular girl for twenty miles in any direction. (She’s also the only girl for twenty miles in any direction.) She has wood to cut and weapons to bedazzle. Her life is full.
Until Logan shows up six years later . . .
And Maddie wants to kill him.

But before that can happen, an assailant appears out of nowhere, knocking Maddie off a cliff and dragging Logan to some unknown fate. Maddie knows she could turn back- and get help. But the weather is turning and the terrain will only get more treacherous, the animals more deadly.

Maddie still really wants to kill Logan.
But she has to save him first.

My Review:

This book was cute and fun read. Really enjoy the story idea of the book. Pretty neat seeing how the main characters grow in the book and learn some life lessons.

Book Summary:

Petty criminal Zara Cole has a painful past that’s made her stronger than most, which is why she chose life in New Detroit instead of moving with her family to Mars. In her eyes, living inside a dome isn’t much better than a prison cell.

My Review:

Book was pretty good and creepy factor to it. You get chosen as a Honor, to live inside an alien. This alien is shape like a ship also. It was very detailed the book on how Honors was be able to live inside the bellow of a beast.

I liked Zara in the book. She reminds me of me. Just trying to survive on her own when her family leaves for Mars. Also she has some past secrets of her family. It was nice she getting randomly pick being an Honor. Will being a honor, worth it in the end?

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!!!
