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.
Rules for Vanishing was a haunting good read. I did love the storyline and the characters in it.
Don’t go in the woods unless you want to play Lucy’s game.
On the eve of Lucy’s disappearance years ago, a mass text message is sent to play the game. Some kids believe in the story and sent out into woods to play.
The main character Sarah, is dealing with a lot stress. Her sister disappeared years ago playing the game. Now it’s her turn to play and go find her sister. Becca left her clues to help her along away. With the help of Sarah and Becca friends, will she be able to find her alive?
Follow the rules and you might make it out alive.
This book really draws you in. There some scary stuff in it, so you might want to read with the lights on. This book really mess with your head on what’s real or not. It has some awesome twist and turns. In the mood for a good fall read then this book than this will be perfect read for you.
You might have trouble sleeping after reading it.
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.
ABOUT THE BOOK
by Annie Sullivan
Release date: September 10, 2019
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retelling, Romance
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.
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.
Kateri all of her life has been train to fight. In order to become queen she must defeat her opponents each time. She is a girl who refuse to settle down. With each fight she is closer to the crown. Her last opponent turns out to be someone who can beat her.
Kateri knows what is a stake if she lose. So she runs off, hoping to find someone good to train her. When she leaves home, she finds out hidden secrets that where kept from her. Will she able to win her crown and save her people?
This book was action packed and a quick pace read. It has tigers, lots of sand and fighting going on. There be some twists and turns throughout the book. A very good stand alone book. I was happy to be a part of this tour. Looking forward to more books by this author.

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?

I read Roar like over two years ago. I have fallen in love with the first book. I recently reread it to get ready for Rage. If you have yet read Roar, you don’t need to read this review.
The storyline picks up where we left off in book one. Aurora finally returns to her ruin home. Now that it is run by the Locke family. Still she tries to keep her identity hidden from her fellow hunters. Now with new found powers, she must find the resistances and take back her throne. Also another threat looms, as a big stormling, is coming her way. How will Aurora keep her people safe?
This book is more action pack. Get more new characters backstories to enjoy. There also more death in this one. You get to enjoy some new point of views and discover some secrets a long the way. I’m looking forward to book three whenever that comes out. Rage comes out today. If you have yet read this series. It a good time to start.
