{Arc Review} The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas

Book Summary:
There are no more cheerleaders in the town of Sunnybrook.
First there was the car accident—two girls gone after hitting a tree on a rainy night. Not long after, the murders happened. Those two girls were killed by the man next door. The police shot him, so no one will ever know why he did it. Monica’s sister was the last cheerleader to die. After her suicide, Sunnybrook High disbanded the cheer squad. No one wanted to be reminded of the girls they lost.
That was five years ago. Now the faculty and students at Sunnybrook High want to remember the lost cheerleaders. But for Monica, it’s not that easy. She just wants to forget. Only, Monica’s world is starting to unravel. There are the letters in her stepdad’s desk, an unearthed, years-old cell phone, a strange new friend at school. . . . Whatever happened five years ago isn’t over. Some people in town know more than they’re saying. And somehow Monica is at the center of it all.
There are no more cheerleaders in Sunnybrook, but that doesn’t mean anyone else is safe.

My Review:

I so love Kara Thomas’ books. Her thriller books are always good. If you have yet read Little Monsters or The Darkest Corners by her, Then what you waiting for? Her new book The Cheerleaders was good. I loved the characters and the plot. I’m glad I got a chance to read it.

I liked Monica in the book. It was hard seeing her try to move after her sisters death. On what happen to the cheerleaders. Somehow the past does not stay buried for long. Will Monica learn the truth before it’s to late?

This book will leave you guessing until the very end. With so many twists and turns will leave you speechless.

If you have yet put The Cheerleaders on you TBR then do so. It comes out next week, so you don’t want to miss it.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart

Book Summary:
In a world where women have no rights, sisters Serina and Nomi Tessaro face two very different fates: one in the palace, the other in prison.
Serina has been groomed her whole life to become a Grace – someone to stand by the heir to the throne as a shining, subjugated example of the perfect woman. But when her headstrong and rebellious younger sister, Nomi, catches the heir’s eye, it’s Serina who takes the fall for the dangerous secret that Nomi has been hiding.
Now trapped in a life she never wanted, Nomi has only one way to save Serina: surrender to her role as a Grace until she can use her position to release her sister. This is easier said than done. A traitor walks the halls of the palace, and deception lurks in every corner. But Serina is running out of time, imprisoned on an island where she must fight to the death to survive and one wrong move could cost her everything.

My Review:

I really liked this book a lot. I like to think of it as a survival book where men control what woman allow to do. A world where two sister has different ideas how things should run. I like both sisters in the book.

Nomi, I liked her in the book. Her careful attitude I enjoy. She tries so hard defy the life man has set for woman. Her rebellion side does get her sister in trouble. Now force in a role she never wanted in the first. Will Nomi be able to fit in and save her sister?

Serina, at first she seems annoying to me. Just trying hard to fit in be a grace. Doing what she is told so her family have a better life. Her sister serect cost her becoming an grace. I like how to grow and become a strong person later. Will she be able to free herself?

This book really test the sisters bonds. Will they be able endure their new lives without each other? It is told in points of views of the sisters. There very little romance in it. Book comes out July 31.

Happy Reading!

Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson

Book Summary:
Monday Charles is missing, and only Claudia seems to notice. Claudia and Monday have always been inseparable—more sisters than friends. So when Monday doesn’t turn up for the first day of school, Claudia’s worried. When she doesn’t show for the second day, or second week, Claudia knows that something is wrong. Monday wouldn’t just leave her to endure tests and bullies alone. Not after last year’s rumors and not with her grades on the line. Now Claudia needs her best—and only—friend more than ever. But Monday’s mother refuses to give Claudia a straight answer, and Monday’s sister April is even less help.
As Claudia digs deeper into her friend’s disappearance, she discovers that no one seems to remember the last time they saw Monday. How can a teenage girl just vanish without anyone noticing that she’s gone?

My Review:

This book was such another good read.. Enjoy the story line a lot. It was a huge guessing game on, Where was Monday. The main character, Claudia I like her determination to find her best friend.

Claudia, and her best friend Monday done everything together. They have such an strong friendship bond. When Monday fail to show up for school, Claudia knew something was wrong. With no one backing up Claudia claims, it’s up to her to find or save her friend, Monday.

This mystery read will leave you feeling emotional wreck until the very end. Very sensitive subject with abuse so warning some young readers beforehand. Looking for something new to read this summer, then pick up Monday’s Not Coming.

Be warn there some shocking twist and turns there leaves you in tears.

{Waiting on Wednesday} Slayer by Kiersten White

I’m so looking forward, digging into the Buffy the vampire slayer universe again. Sad the book comes out so far. So counting down on release day. Here summary and cover.

Book Summary:

From New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White comes a brand-new series set in the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that introduces a new Slayer as she grapples with the responsibility of managing her incredible powers that she’s just beginning to understand.

Into every generation a Slayer is born…

Nina and her twin sister, Artemis, are far from normal. It’s hard to be when you grow up at the Watcher’s Academy, which is a bit different from your average boarding school. Here teens are trained as guides for Slayers—girls gifted with supernatural strength to fight the forces of darkness. But while Nina’s mother is a prominent member of the Watcher’s Council, Nina has never embraced the violent Watcher lifestyle. Instead she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic.

Until the day Nina’s life changes forever.

Thanks to Buffy, the famous (and infamous) Slayer that Nina’s father died protecting, Nina is not only the newest Chosen One—she’s the last Slayer, ever. Period.

As Nina hones her skills with her Watcher-in-training, Leo, there’s plenty to keep her occupied: a monster fighting ring, a demon who eats happiness, a shadowy figure that keeps popping up in Nina’s dreams…

But it’s not until bodies start turning up that Nina’s new powers will truly be tested—because someone she loves might be next.

One thing is clear: Being Chosen is easy. Making choices is hard.

2019 release date.

Like Never and Always by Ann Aguirre

Book Summary:
On a hot summer night, a screech of brakes and shattering glass changes two lives forever.
Liv wakes in the hospital, confused when they call her Morgan. She assumes it’s a case of mistaken identity, yet when the bandages come off, it’s not her face in the mirror anymore. It’s her best friend Morgan’s.
Morgan always seemed to have the perfect life, yet Liv must navigate endlessly disturbing secrets of the criminal and murderous variety—and a romance that feels like a betrayal. Torn between the boy she loved as Liv and the boy she’s grown to love as Morgan, Liv still has to survive Morgan’s last request.

My Review:

This book was a good read. The summary sound good and I did liked the cover to it. Some of the main characters I did like.

Liv, I liked her in the book. She struggles to overcome friend death, Morgan. Also she discovered hidden secrets of her friend, while her soul is stuck inside of her. What will become of Liv, once she helps her friend out?

This was a nice mystery read. Yes there a love triangle in it. Think it has a little adult theme to it, with this one part. This book is for any mystery readers out there. This book will leave you with so many questions.

Happy Reading!

Excerpt
“Just let this be the second secret you
keep for me,” I say then. “Thanks for not telling Nathan, by the way.”
Clay leans his arm along the door frame,
tilting his head slightly out the open window as if he needs the air. “You
couldn’t pay me to talk to that jackass lately.”
“You two fighting?”
“No. He’s just . . . Nathan.” He
hesitates. “I wasn’t going to tell you this . . .”
“What?” Anything that could divert me
from my precarious situation, even momentarily, seems like a welcome
distraction.
“He brought a girl home last night.”
From his tone he expects this to destroy me.
And sure, there’s a twinge because
before, I thought Nathan and I had a soul-deep connection. Fact is, he’s a
little immature, a lot selfish, and I just never noticed. They say love is
blind, but I’d say that infatuation is blind, and love is tolerant. When you
really love someone, it’s not that you can’t see the flaws; you’re just willing
to forgive them.
Belatedly I realize he’s expecting a
reply. “I’m not surprised. Nathan is used to getting what he wants just like
you’re using to giving things up. Oh, I was going to ask him to drop this off,
but since you’re here . . .” I fish in my backpack for his hoodie.
Yes, I’ve been carrying it for like four
days. First I hesitated to wash it, but I didn’t want to be a sad girl who’s
still smelling her ex’s clothes a month later. Then I didn’t return it because
that felt like final acceptance, —superstitious, I know. Over is over, and
random articles of clothing don’t change anything.
“You didn’t need to bother with that.
I’ve had it forever.”
“All the more reason for you to have it
back,” I say.
“Do you need to be this cool about
everything?” he bursts out. “I know you have to be scared and hurt—”
“Yeah, I am, all those things. And yes,
I have to be this way, or I can’t function. Why are you even here anyway?” The
pain and frustration cracks my voice, and I really wish I was anywhere else.
“Because I’m worried about you.”
“Then stop. I accepted your decision,
now respect mine. It’ll be easier if I don’t have to see you.”
His jaw clenches, showing the force he’s
exerting to bite back whatever he wants to say.
Finally he just takes his hoodie but he
pauses with his hand on the door. “You know you can call me, right? Even if
we’re not together, I’d never let anyone hurt you. One call and I’m there.”
My heart feels like it’ll crack in two,
but I’m resolute; I have to be. “I already deleted your number.”

Save the Date by Morgan Matson

Book Summary:
Charlie Grant’s older sister is getting married this weekend at their family home, and Charlie can’t wait—for the first time in years, all four of her older siblings will be under one roof. Charlie is desperate for one last perfect weekend, before the house is sold and everything changes. The house will be filled with jokes and games and laughs again. Making decisions about things like what college to attend and reuniting with longstanding crush Jesse Foster—all that can wait. She wants to focus on making the weekend perfect.
The only problem? The weekend is shaping up to be an absolute disaster.
There’s the unexpected dog with a penchant for howling, house alarm that won’t stop going off, and a papergirl with a grudge.
There are the relatives who aren’t speaking, the (awful) girl her favorite brother brought home unannounced, and a missing tuxedo.
Not to mention the neighbor who seems to be bent on sabotage and a storm that is bent on drenching everything. The justice of the peace is missing. The band will only play covers. The guests are all crazy. And the wedding planner’s nephew is unexpectedly, distractingly…cute.
Over the course of three ridiculously chaotic days, Charlie will learn more than she ever expected about the family she thought she knew by heart. And she’ll realize that sometimes, trying to keep everything like it was in the past means missing out on the future.

My Review:

This book was a most enjoyable read. Love the story idea and the cover for it. Enjoy some of the main characters in the book. There lots of people to remember in the book, since the main character has a huge family.

Charlie, I liked her in the book. She can be stubborn at times. Also she not a huge fan of change. This wedding will change a lot for her towards the end. So many misadventures happen leading up the big day of her sister wedding. Can she be able to pull it all together in the end?

This book is a good summer read. For people who enjoy wedding planning and lots of family bonding. This book shows you that there is no such thing as a perfect family.

Will you Save the Date?

Happy Reading!!
