I Am Still Alive by Kate Alice Marshall

Book Summary:
After
Jess is alone. Her cabin has burned to the ground. She knows if she doesn’t act fast, the cold will kill her before she has time to worry about food. But she is still alive—for now.
Before
Jess hadn’t seen her survivalist, off-the-grid dad in over a decade. But after a car crash killed her mother and left her injured, she was forced to move to his cabin in the remote Canadian wilderness. Just as Jess was beginning to get to know him, a secret from his past paid them a visit, leaving her father dead and Jess stranded.
After
With only her father’s dog for company, Jess must forage and hunt for food, build shelter, and keep herself warm. Some days it feels like the wild is out to destroy her, but she’s stronger than she ever imagined.
Jess will survive. She has to. She knows who killed her father… and she wants revenge.

My Review:

I did liked this book. It was very detailed on what happen to the main character in the book. This book for me will be a one time read.

I did liked Jess in the book. It’s a sad story on what happens to her in the book. The things she has to do to survive in the short time she was with her father was unfortunate. Will she be able to survive, to get her revenge on the people who kill her father?

This read is for people who like survival stories. It very detailed book on what Jess had to do in order to survive. You get flashbacks on how she end up alone in the woods. If you want to read it and unsure of it, then get it at the library. Looking for something new and different then you guys can try this book out.

My Review:

I was so excited to return to Fear Street. These books got me hooked onto reading. What I love about R.L Stine you can read them out of order. The curse is explain in the beginning of the book a bit for those who don’t remember years ago. Also the book can be fore new and old readers a like.

The story there is a curse years ago between the Goodes and the Fears. Yes I forgot what it was. Lucky the books of the story is released in the young adult section.

Yes now onto the book with a curse. Who say getting marry was gonna be easy? When your a fear and a deadly curse is placed on your family. It up to to one sister to save her family from the curse and rekindle her sister bond. Will she make it in time?

This book was a quick read. Love the little back story on how the curse started.

For new reader and old ones alike.

{Arc Review} Mirage by Somaiya Daud

Book Summary:
In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation; she dreams of writing poetry like the old-world poems she adores; she dreams of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventure, and travel beyond her isolated moon.
But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped by the regime and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double, someone to appear in public as Maram, ready to die in her place.
As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty—and her time with the princess’ fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection…because one wrong move could lead to her death.

My Review:

I did liked the story idea of this book. The cover is also pretty looking. I did like some of the characters in the book.

I like Amani in the book. Thought she was brave to stand in for the princess. Also thought she was foolish at time like for falling in love with the prince, while her life was on the line. How long can Amani last on pretending to a princess?

Thought the book was a slow pace read to me. It could have been action packed but it’s just me. If you guys love slow pace read then you might enjoy it. If your unsure to read the book then try it out at the library. The ending did make me a little curious on what happens next. This book comes out next week the 28th.

Happy Reading!

Sanctuary by Caryn Lix

Book Summary:
Kenzie holds one truth above all: the company is everything.
As a citizen of Omnistellar Concepts, the most powerful corporation in the solar system, Kenzie has trained her entire life for one goal: to become an elite guard on Sanctuary, Omnistellar’s space prison for superpowered teens too dangerous for Earth. As a junior guard, she’s excited to prove herself to her company—and that means sacrificing anything that won’t propel her forward.
But then a routine drill goes sideways and Kenzie is taken hostage by rioting prisoners.
At first, she’s confident her commanding officer—who also happens to be her mother—will stop at nothing to secure her freedom. Yet it soon becomes clear that her mother is more concerned with sticking to Omnistellar protocol than she is with getting Kenzie out safely.
As Kenzie forms her own plan to escape, she doesn’t realize there’s a more sinister threat looming, something ancient and evil that has clawed its way into Sanctuary from the vacuum of space. And Kenzie might have to team up with her captors to survive—all while beginning to suspect there’s a darker side to the Omnistellar she knows.

My Review:

I’m glad I picked this book up at ALA this year. My friend loved scifi books so I got it for her. So I read first to see what it was liked. I gonna say I was surprised how much I did love this book. Not a huge scifi reader but this book was so good. Not many readers heard of this book. Hope it gets more attention in the book world. So looking for to book two.

Enough of me rambling. So the story was pretty neat setting. A prison in space, with only about 4 to 6 guards on board. What could possibly gone wrong there?

Kenzie, her mom and crew work round the clock to make sure the prisoners don’t escape. She very brave and loyal to protect her mom and the city from the prisoners. When the prisoners on board escape, she must be more brave and try to survive. What do the prisoners have in store for her and the crew?

Thought the book was action packed. Filled with some twists and turns. There so many hidden secrets on the Sanctuary, so be ready to discover what they are. It a quick read and did enjoy every minute of it.

Happy Reading!!

The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

Book Summary:
Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. The games ended when Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin in the dead of night. The last she–or anyone–saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips.
Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings–massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. The paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the socialite and wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale. When Francesca implores her to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends.
Yet it’s immediately clear that all is not right at Camp Nightingale. Already haunted by memories from fifteen years ago, Emma discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, mounting mistrust from Francesca and, most disturbing of all, cryptic clues Vivian left behind about the camp’s twisted origins. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing threats from both man and nature in the present.
And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale, the more she realizes it may come at a deadly price.

My Review:

I know I’m reviewing an adult read. I did enjoyed Riley Sager other book, The Final Girls. So i was excited for his new book. He is gonna to be my go to guy for good adult thrillers. If you guys not into adult thrillers, then you can skip this review.

The detailed summary give most of the book away. It what written on back of book. Don’t forget it’s a thriller and there be some twists and turns.

I enjoyed the main character story, Emma. I liked how the story switches up between her time at camp in the past and now. There’s a lot of questions on what happen years ago and Emma the main suspect. How can three campers just disappears years ago? Emma faces her past when she goes back to camp. Will she be able to find answers to the past?

The book is a slow start like any mystery/thriller read. Once it picks up, you will keep guessing until the very end on what’s going on. Beware, Riley knows how to shock you in the end. In mood for good thriller, then this book be a right for for you.

Happy Reading!!

Now she trying hard to stay alive on a island, where everyone wants her dead. Will she be able to prove her innocence in time? Who can she really trust to help her with her case on island?

This book is action packed from beginning to end. Lots of twists and turns. Hopefully there be a follow up to the book. This book will leave a trail of dead bodies so you been warn. Looking for something new and different to read, then check out this book. It just came out today.

You ready to go to Alcatraz 2.0?
