Thanks to my editor Stay Fetters at Acourtofcoffeeandbooks for this new banner.
I did like this modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Will write my review of the book soon.
I’m in the middle of The Hive. I’m liking it a bit. It has an interesting storyline.
Cassie McKinney has always believed in the Hive.
Social media used to be out of control, after all. People were torn apart by trolls and doxxers. Even hackers – like Cassie’s dad – were powerless against it.
But then the Hive came. A better way to sanction people for what they do online. Cause trouble, get too many “condemns,” and a crowd can come after you, teach you a lesson in real life. It’s safer, fairer and perfectly legal.
Entering her senior year of high school, filled with grief over an unexpected loss, Cassie is primed to lash out. Egged on by new friends, she makes an edgy joke online. Cassie doubts anyone will notice.
But the Hive notices everything. And as her viral comment whips an entire country into a frenzy, the Hive demands retribution.
One moment Cassie is anonymous; the next, she’s infamous. And running for her life.
With nowhere to turn, she must learn to rely on herself – and a group of Hive outcasts who may not be reliable – as she slowly uncovers the truth about the machine behind the Hive.
New York Times bestselling authors Barry Lyga and Morgan Baden have teamed up for the first time to create a novel that’s gripping, terrifying and more relevant every day, based on a story proposal by Jennifer Beals and Tom Jacobson
Looking forward to reading The Memory Thief. The summary sounds very good. The cover is so pretty for it.
In the city of Craewick, memories reign. The power-obsessed ruler of the city, Madame, has cultivated a society in which memories are currency, citizens are divided by ability, and Gifted individuals can take memories from others through touch as they please.
Seventeen-year-old Etta Lark is desperate to live outside of the corrupt culture, but grapples with the guilt of an accident that has left her mother bedridden in the city’s asylum. When Madame threatens to put her mother up for auction, a Craewick practice in which a “criminal’s” memories are sold to the highest bidder before being killed, Etta will do whatever it takes to save her. Even if it means rejoining the Shadows, the rebel group she swore off in the wake of the accident years earlier.
To prove her allegiance to the Shadows and rescue her mother, Etta must steal a memorized map of the Maze, a formidable prison created by the bloodthirsty ruler of a neighboring Realm. So she sets out on a journey in which she faces startling attacks, unexpected romance, and, above all, her own past in order to set things right in her world.
Just been feeling sick and trying to keep blog active as best as I can. I’m reading at a slow peace since real life stuff been getting in the way.

This book was a quick read. It deals with bad family life and trying to survive on the open road. I like the bond these two girls have for each other. They always looking out what’s best for each other and trying to get one step a head from their family finding them. It a dangerous roadtrip which it leaves to self discovery. If you looking for some friendship adventures, then this might be for you.
The Chain was such a good thriller/mystery read for adults. The storyline was so interesting and very original. I liked the characters within the book also.

Her daughter is kidnap, she must pay ransom and kidnap another kid to continue the chain. Rachel teams up with Pete and they quickly work together to get Kylie home.
Kylie in the book is very clever girl. She tries hard coming up with way to escape. I like how we see Kylie point of view when she gets kidnap. We get a glimpse on how the little girl hanging in there. Will Kylie be able to make home alive?
This book is full of crazy twists and turns you don’t see coming. The chain is watching your every move, one bad mistake can cost your life. I got so engrossed in the book and it’s a quick read. If your in a mood for a thriller/mystery read then you should try The Chain.

Scars of the past still haunts her, she starts school at a new place. Which is not easy when people start treating you differently.

The book has a new fresh outlook to it. Instead of dealing with a pretty main character, you get some who is scar on the inside and out. It was written pretty good and the book draws you. This book recently came out this week. In mood for a new book, then try Scars Like Wings.
Rules for Vanishing was a haunting good read. I did love the storyline and the characters in it.

The Grace Year was an interesting read. I did liked the book but not love it. The storyline was intriguing and the characters are likable.
Each year woman are chosen to enter the grace year. No one knows what it is. Just that the woman are accuse to have power and each year they are taken away to get rid of it, according to the men in the village.
Tierney throughout her life just keep her head down and distance for everyone. Once she chosen for the grace year, she has her whole life turn upside down. A year of the unknown with people she hardly talk with it. There are hunters watching their every more. Trapped for a year, she must use her knowledge to survived.
This book starts strong. Slowly we learn of the people and who entering The Grace Year. The storyline idea was good, but drags out a bit in the middle of the book. It has a bit of lord of the flies feeling to it. If your into survival books, you might enjoy it. It was hard writing a review without giving anything away. The book comes out October 8th.
Fear of Missing Out might hit close to home with some readers. The storyline deals with a girl who survived cancer and then she end up getting it back. There are characters you fall in love with.
In the beginning of the book, you met Astrid. She getting news her cancer has return. She been through chemotherapy before and it helps but there might be a chance with a new drug to help her. Before she make up mind on what to do she find a new option with her life, cryopreservation. She thinks on freezing her body until a cure is find. Now she goes a roadtrip to fight for her life with her best friend and boyfriend.
This book is such a heartbreaking read. You feel for every character in the book and rooting for Astrid along the way. During the roadtrip, I’m happy to see they can sight see along the way and try to reconnect to with father. This book is well written and I love every minute of it.
What decisions Astrid will make in the end?
I did liked the book Sea Witch Raising. The first book Sea Witch was also good. The storyline is about two sisters who made a deal with the sea witch. If you have yet read Sea Witch, you may disregard this review.
The book picks up from where book one left off. A mermaid, Aila making a deal with the sea witch.
Runa is Alia sister, she also will do anything to bring her sister home. Now making a deal with the witch with her sisters help. Runa got a huge challenge ahead of her. Not only she must save her sister, but stop her father from going to war.
Evie is stuck watching the sisters from a far. She is bully by the sea king, as he wants his daughters back. Evie is scare of the king and tries hard to break from his grip. She is torture from the past of dead and mistakes. Will the sea witch find peace.
This book has a slow pace read to me. I do enjoy villian stories a lot. Some villians had sad backstories or misunderstood. Evie is one those villians, is she really that evil helping out mermaids and granting them their wishes? This book is about stopping a war, and finding love before it’s to late. Then find out for yourself on who is truly evil in it.
Unpregnant was such a fun read. I did liked the storyline a lot and the characters in it. If you enjoy stories on teen pregnancies. It was a heartfelt book and turning to an unexpected friend for help.
Veronica in the book must keep up appearances with her family and friends. She gets straight A’s, wear a purity ring, plays by the rules and have the prefect boyfriend. Soon she is getting ready to go off to college, but one thing is standing in her way. She accidentally gets knocked up.
Her life seems to go up in smokes. There no way she telling her parents the truth, nor she trust her inner circle friends. When her ex friend Bailey the only know the truth, she turns to her for a road trip to terminate the mistake. Along the way the girls encounter a lot of misadventures and a crazy ex boyfriend stalking them.
Will this road trip bring the girls close together again?
This book was so much fun. There some funny jokes throughout the book. I like how Veronica also trying to understand what happen to her and Bailey friendship. She also learns she can’t be perfect all the time. I like to see how much Veronica grow and learn from this roadtrip. If your in mood for a feel good friendship book with laughs and fun along the way, then you might enjoy Unpregnant. This book recently just came out.
