Lovely, Dark And Deep by Justina Chen

Book Summary:
What would you do if the sun became your enemy?
That’s exactly what happens to Viola Li after she returns from a trip abroad and develops a sudden and extreme case of photosensitivity — an inexplicable allergy to sunlight. Thanks to her crisis-manager parents, she doesn’t just have to wear layers of clothes and a hat the size of a spaceship. She has to stay away from all hint of light. Say goodbye to windows and running outdoors. Even her phone becomes a threat when its screen burns her.
Viola is determined to maintain a normal life, particularly after she meets Josh. He’s a funny, talented Thor look-alike who carries his own mysterious grief. But the intensity of their romance makes her take more and more risks, and when a rebellion against her parents backfires dangerously, she must find her way to a life — and love — as deep and lovely as her dreams.

My Review:

What happens when the sun is your own worst enemy?

That’s what had happen to Viola, when she was vacationing with her aunt one year. Somehow the sun start poisoning her body. With so many plans and dreams she had hope to accomplish when school ended. Now she got to come up with a new plan that involves working in the dark.

I did enjoy the book. I liked how Viola is a fighting for her life. No many what the doctors told she worked hard and stayed in school. You get to see the struggle she has with her disease and leading a normal life in the daytime.

Will Viola let this disease defeat her in the end or will she go down fighting?

This was a short read. If your looking for something different, than you might liked this book. Sorry review is so short, the summary gives most of it away and it was an quick read.

Happy Reading!!!

Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott with Mikki Daugherty and Tobias Laconis

Book Summary:
Can you love someone you can never touch?
Stella Grant likes to be in control—even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions.
The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals.
Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment.
What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?

My Review:

Five Feet Apart is a breathtaking read about an deadly illness. It was also an educational read. You get to hear the journey of the main characters have to make and grow over time in book.

Stella Grant, I really liked her in the book. She tries her best getting her disease in control and stay a live for her family sake. When a chance encounter with Will Newman, will she be able to keep things under control? Love how she has a YouTube blog to keep other people positive about their disease.

Will Newman, I enjoy him in the book. He already accepted that he was going to die and just want to live his life. When Stella comes along, can she help him live longer?

This book was a quick read. Love the point of view told by the main characters. I’m looking forward to the movie of to come out next year. It’s about living life to the fullest even if it’s on borrow time.

Here the trailer for movie:

{ Waiting on Wednesday} The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons

Book Summary:

Welcome to Vale Hall, the school for aspiring con artists.

When Brynn Hilder is recruited to Vale, it seems like the elite academy is her chance to start over, away from her mom’s loser boyfriend and her rundown neighborhood. But she soon learns that Vale chooses students not so much for their scholastic talent as for their extracurricular activities, such as her time spent conning rich North Shore kids out of their extravagant allowances.

At first, Brynn jumps at the chance to help the school in its mission to rid the city of corrupt officials―because what could be better than giving entitled jerks what they deserve? But that’s before she meets her mark―a senator’s son―and before she discovers the school’s headmaster has secrets he’ll stop at nothing to protect. As the lines between right and wrong blur, Brynn begins to realize she’s in way over head.

Coming out: Feburary 5th, 2019

{Arc Review} The Wicked King by Holly Black

Book Summary:
You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.
The first lesson is to make yourself strong.
After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.
When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

My Review:

This book was so awesome. A little slow start but picks up pretty good in the middle. There are so many emotions within the book. You guys have until January 9th for it to come out. Will leave you some gifs on how I feel about the book.

So kinda beginning of book just was like waiting for something big to happen..

This is me in the middle and towards the end….

Then the ending has me like this..

This book is action packed, very little romance, and lots of shocking twists you don’t see coming. So be prepared when jumping into this series again. Also can I say how pretty this cover is. I’m excited to go to signing event. Now need to count down to book 3.

Happy Reading!!!

Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel by Val Emmich, Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek & Justin Paul

Book Summary:
From the show’s creators comes the groundbreaking novel inspired by the Broadway smash hit Dear Evan Hansen.
Dear Evan Hansen,
Today’s going to be an amazing day and here’s why…
When a letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a family’s grief over the loss of their son, he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. He just has to stick to a lie he never meant to tell, that the notoriously troubled Connor Murphy was his secret best friend.
Suddenly, Evan isn’t invisible anymore–even to the girl of his dreams. And Connor Murphy’s parents, with their beautiful home on the other side of town, have taken him in like he was their own, desperate to know more about their enigmatic son from his closest friend. As Evan gets pulled deeper into their swirl of anger, regret, and confusion, he knows that what he’s doing can’t be right, but if he’s helping people, how wrong can it be?
No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose. And a website. He’s confident. He’s a viral phenomenon. Every day is amazing. Until everything is in danger of unraveling and he comes face to face with his greatest obstacle: himself.
A simple lie leads to complicated truths in this big-hearted coming-of-age story of grief, authenticity and the struggle to belong in an age of instant connectivity and profound isolation.

My Review:

Dear Evan Hansen, Today is going to be an amazing day and here’s why….

This book was such an awesome read. I had to listen to the soundtrack while reading it. For those who may not know, this book is base off a musical. The story was so good and have fallen in love with some of the main characters.

Evan Hansen, I felt so sorry for him in the book. He deals with so much anxiety and loneliness in the beginning of it. When doing an assignment to his therapist, things get out of hand. Soon he build this lie when a classmate passed away, then he becomes popular. You see the guilt eatting him up over this one lie. How far will Evan go before the truth comes out?

There is also Connor who seems to be on drugs and a big loner. His family tries hard to help but in the end he takes his life. You get to read Connor story in the afterlife throughout the book. Will his spirit be able to move on?

So I found out the musical is very different than the book. They added a couple new storylines. It perfect for those who have yet seen the musical and wanted to.

*Warning: May contain some sensitive issues for some readers*

The Musical:

I was lucky this Christmas to have seen the musical. It was so good and eye opening on anxiety and feeling alone. The music was so addictive and fun to sing along with. I was so happy to experience seeing it before reading the book. Here some pictures.

Happy Reading!!

How She Died, How I Lived by Mary Crockett

Book Summary:
I was one of five. The five girls Kyle texted that day. The girls it could have been. Only Jamie–beautiful, saintly Jamie–was kind enough to respond. And it got her killed.
On the eve of Kyle’s sentencing a year after Jamie’s death, all the other “chosen ones” are coping in various ways. But our tenacious narrator is full of anger, stuck somewhere between the horrifying past and the unknown future as she tries to piece together why she gets to live, while Jamie is dead.
Now she finds herself drawn to Charlie, Jamie’s boyfriend–knowing all the while that their relationship will always be haunted by what-ifs and why-nots. Is hope possible in the face of such violence? Is forgiveness? How do you go on living when you know it could have been you instead?

My Review:

One text message change the lives of five girls. Sadly only one end up dead for answering the text. This book was an unique read. The main character in the book is never named in it.

The main girl in the book you can feel her pain for being alive. The boy she thought she knew killed someone. Now dealing with the guilt on what happen that night with the other survivors. When the case opens up again, Will she be able to handle it?

This book is about lost and couping with it. If your in mood for an new read, then you could try this book out. Did liked the story to the book, but the pace is slow a bit for me.

Happy Reading!!!
