{Arc Review} Unpregnant by Jenni Hendrixs and Ted Caplan

Book Summary:
Seventeen-year-old Veronica Clarke never thought she would wish she’d failed a test until she finds herself holding a thick piece of plastic in her hands and staring at two solid pink lines. Even the most consistent use of condoms won’t prevent pregnancy when your boyfriend secretly pokes holes in them to keep you from going out-of-state for college.
Veronica needs an abortion, but the closest place she can legally get one is over nine hundred miles away—and Veronica doesn’t have a car. Too ashamed to ask her friends or family for help, Veronica turns to the one person she believes won’t judge her: Bailey Butler, Jefferson High’s own little black cloud of anger and snark—and Veronica’s ex-best friend. Once on the road, Veronica quickly remembers nothing with Bailey is ever simple and that means two days of stolen cars, shotguns, crazed ex-boyfriends, truck stop strippers with pro-life agendas, and a limo driver named Bob. But the pain and betrayal of their broken friendship can’t be outrun. When their fighting leads to a brutal moment of truth, Bailey abandons Veronica. Now Veronica must risk everything in order to repair the hurt she’s caused.

My Review:

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.

Happy Reading!!!!!

{Arc Review & Giveaway} Shatter City by Scott Westerfield

Book Summary:
When the world sees Frey, they think they see her twin sister Rafi. Frey was raised to be Rafi’s double, and now she’s taken on the role . . . without anyone else knowing.
Her goal? To destroy the forces that created her.
But with the world watching and a rebellion rising, Frey is forced into a detour. Suddenly she is stranded on her own in Paz, a city where many of the citizens attempt to regulate their emotions through an interface on their arms. Paz is an easy place to get lost . . . and also an easy place to lose yourself.
As the city comes under a catastrophic attack, Frey must leave the shadows and enter the chaos of warfare – because there is no other way for her to find her missing sister and have her revenge against her murderous father.

My Review:

I was excited for book two of The Imposters, Shatter City. I did love the world building. It takes place in the Uglies series. For those who have yet Imposters book one, can disregard this review. You see a lot of the main characters force to grow up in book two and change a lot since the first book.

The book leaves off with Frey now pretending to her sister, Rafi. Frey has a plan to save the boy she love and kill her father. Things never do go as plan. Col has set up an rescue mission of his own.

Frey once more becomes free and learns that her sister has gone missing. With a video clue to Rafi whereabouts, Frey heads to Paz. What secrets will Frey find in Paz? Where did her sister really run off to?

This book was a quick read for me. Mostly it was action pack fun. You get to see how much Frey struggling to have her own identity back. Then Rafi gets thrown into the wild, and have to become strong like Frey. These sisters change so much since book one. It was nice watching them grow up. A war is coming so they must all be prepared for it. Hopefully we get book three very soon.

The book comes September 17th.

One lucky reader gets to win my arc. Sorry it’s US Only again. Wish I had enough funds to send to international readers.

{Arc Review} Frankly in Love by David Yoon

Book Summary:
High school senior Frank Li is a Limbo–his term for Korean-American kids who find themselves caught between their parents’ traditional expectations and their own Southern California upbringing. His parents have one rule when it comes to romance–“Date Korean”–which proves complicated when Frank falls for Brit Means, who is smart, beautiful–and white. Fellow Limbo Joy Song is in a similar predicament, and so they make a pact: they’ll pretend to date each other in order to gain their freedom. Frank thinks it’s the perfect plan, but in the end, Frank and Joy’s fake-dating maneuver leaves him wondering if he ever really understood love–or himself–at all.

My Review:

Frankly in Love was such a good read. I enjoy the Korea culture in the book and the characters within it. The storyline was very interesting. Some parts of the book was fun, while there was some serious stuff going on in between.

Frankly life is complicated, since he part American and Korean. He works hard in school and do anything to please his parents. Then one day, Frankly falls with a girl, that his parents will never approve of.

Now Frankly must come up with a plan to keep seeing his girl and hiding from his parents. That’s where his Korean girl best friend comes in. They pretend to date. I mean what could possibly go wrong?

This book was kinda heartfelt read. It deals with some racist in it a bit. I feel bad for Frankly in the book, he deals with hiding from his family and the girl he love. This book has some family bonding moments in it and also some romance. Hopfully Frankly gets his life together in the end. This book is kinda like a Korea Drama which why I liked it so much. Looking for a good family book read, then you might like Frankly in Love.

Happy Reading and Release week of this book!!!

{Blog Tour & Giveaway} Tiger Queen by Annie Sullivan


ABOUT THE BOOK
Tiger Queen
by Annie Sullivan
Publisher: BLINK
Release date: September 10, 2019
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retelling, Romance
Synopsis:
From Annie Sullivan, author of A Touch of Gold, comes Tiger Queen, a sweeping YA fantasy
adventure that tells the story of a fierce desert princess battling to save her kingdom. Fans
of Rebel of the Sands and Meagan Spooner will devour this retelling of Frank Stockton’s fa-
mous short story, “The Lady, or the Tiger?”
In the mythical desert kingdom of Achra, an ancient law forces sixteen-year-old Princess Kateri to
fight in the arena to prove her right to rule. For Kateri, winning also means fulfilling a promise to her
late mother that she would protect her people, who are struggling through windstorms and drought.
The situation is worsened by the gang of Desert Boys that frequently raids the city wells, forcing the
king to ration what little water is left. The punishment for stealing water is a choice between two
doors: behind one lies freedom, and behind the other is a tiger.
But when Kateri’s final opponent is announced, she knows she cannot win. In desperation, she
turns to the desert and the one person she never thought she’d side with. What Kateri discovers
twists her world—and her heart—upside down. Her future is now behind two doors—only she’s not
sure which holds the key to keeping her kingdom and which releases the tiger.

My Review:

Tiger Queen was such a good stand alone read. I enjoy the storyline of how a princess is more of a warrior than being helpless. I do like the most of the characters with in the book.

{Arc Review} Only Ashes Remains by Rebecca Schaeffer

Book Summary:
After escaping her kidnappers and destroying the black market where she was held captive, all Nita wants is to find a way to live her life without looking over her shoulder. But with a video of her ability to self-heal all over the dark web, Nita knows she’s still a prime target on the black market.
There’s only one way to keep herself safe.
Nita must make herself so feared that no one would ever dare come after her again. And the best way to start building her reputation? Take her revenge on Fabricio, the boy who sold Nita to her kidnappers. But killing Fabricio is harder than Nita thought it would be, even with Kovit by her side. Now caught in a game of kill or be killed, Nita will do whatever it takes to win.

My Review:

Only Ashes Remains was so bloody good. It’s book two of Not Even Bones series. You may discard review if you have yet book one.

The books leaves off with Nita just blew up the black market and bumped into the guy who sold her out. She thinks she safe for now going back home to her mother. Until she finds out people are hunting her down, the person she thought she killed won’t stay dead.

Time to prove herself to her mother, Nita enlist the aid of Kovit. These two are the perfect monsters and killing a lots of people to get information they want. Leaving a bloody mess along the way, will these two ever find peace.

I enjoy Kovit and Nita interaction with each other. They are trying hard to to be good, but end up getting their morals wrong. No matter how hard they fight it, they just monsters at heart. Who is to judge them on what’s right or wrong?

This book is really a bloody mess again. I love entering Not Even Bones world. I was excited when the publisher gave me a arc copy to review. Hope more people get to enjoy this read. It prefect fall read and horror fans a like. This book just came out today.

So much blood on the main characters hands again.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} Tunnel of Bones by Victoria Schwab

Book Summary:
Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual.
She (plus her ghost best friend, Jacob, of course) are in Paris, where Cass’s parents are filming their TV show about the world’s most haunted cities. Sure, it’s fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there’s true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs.
When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter — and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger.
And if Cass fails, the force she’s unleashed could haunt the city forever.

My Review:

Tunnel of Bones was so good. You get to enjoy more hauntings set in Paris. The book is good for the fall read. If you have yet read City of Ghosts, you don’t have to read this review.

Cass and Jacob are back again. Now they get to join Cass’s folks in Paris. There some awesome haunted new sites to explore and stories to tell. When Cass goes in the catacombs, something evil follows her back. Still learning her new gifts and help with old friends. She now must find a way to get rid of this pest for good.

I enjoy the friendship between Cass and Jacob. The second book has more life threatening issues at hand. Lots of haunts and fun along the way. This book has everything for a good Halloween read. It comes out September 3rd.

Happy Reading!!!

How the Lights Gets in by Katy Upperman

Book Summary:
Since her sister’s tragic death, seventeen-year-old Callie Ryan has basically given up. Her grades have plummeted, she’s quit her swim team, and she barely recognizes the people her parents have become.
When she returns to her aunt’s run-down coastal Victorian one year after Chloe’s death, Callie resigns herself to a summer of guilt and home renovations. She doesn’t expect to be charmed by the tiny coastal town or by Tucker Morgan, a local boy brimming with sunshine.
But even as her days begin to brighten, Callie’s nights are crowded with chilling dreams, unanswered questions, and eerie phenomenon that have her convinced she’s being haunted. Will Callie be able to figure out what her sister is trying to communicate before it’s too late?

My Review:

I liked How the Lights Get in book. It was a nice mystery read and I did like some of the characters. Mostly the book is about grieving a lost one and trying to move on.

Callie in the book deals with the lost of her sister very hard. She smokes, weed and just stays in all the time. Her family is a mess also. The mother drinks to much and her father tries to hold everyone together. Maybe sending Callie over her aunt’s place might help heal. She starts seeing her sister ghost and regrets what had happen to her sister. Will Callie be able to find peace and move on?

This book a slow mystery read. Also deals with coping of a lost one. The ghost of Callie’s sister you have to guess she is real or all inside her head. The book has some twists going on. If you looking for a nice mystery, you might like this one.

Happy Reading!
