{Arc Review} Batman: Nightwalker (DC Icons #2) by Marie Lu

Book Summary:

Before he was Batman, he was Bruce Wayne. A reckless boy willing to break the rules for a girl who may be his worst enemy.

The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is next on their list.

One by one, the city’s elites are being executed as their mansions’ security systems turn against them, trapping them like prey. Meanwhile, Bruce is turning eighteen and about to inherit his family’s fortune, not to mention the keys to Wayne Enterprises and all the tech gadgetry his heart could ever desire. But after a run-in with the police, he’s forced to do community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city’s most brutal criminals.

Madeleine Wallace is a brilliant killer . . . and Bruce’s only hope.

In Arkham, Bruce meets Madeleine, a brilliant girl with ties to the Nightwalkers. What is she hiding? And why will she speak only to Bruce? Madeleine is the mystery Bruce must unravel. But is he getting her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees? Bruce will walk the dark line between trust and betrayal as the Nightwalkers circle closer.

My Review:

When I first heard about this book, I was like I must read it. Was lucky enough to an arc of it. I am such an big Batman fan so was happy Marie Lu wrote this book.It was when  Bruce before he became the batman. I really enjoy the story line to this book. Get to see Bruce growing up as an man a bit and problems he has during high school. Was so sad how short the book Batman was. This book has action, lots of fighting and some deaths in it, hardly that much romance going on. If you looking for to see how the Bruce turn out at the age of 18 then you will like this book. It’s coming out Jan. 2, so it will be out soon. Happy Reading!

{Arc Review & Giveaway} Everless by Sara Holland

Book Summary:

In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.

No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.

But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.

My Review:

A world where blood can cost you, your time. When I first heard of this book I have fallen in love with the cover and summary. The world is Everless is an place of dangers and everything is cost with blood money. When your 17 your old enough to get your blood letting they call it. It crazy how that blood can turn to gold to use for payment. Don’t want to spoil to much of the world of Everless.

I enjoy the three main characters, Julie, Roan and Liam. Liam comes off as an very scary guy at first. Roan is this nice guy, that every girl wants. Then there Juiles who has her own little serects but was once good friends wtih Roan and Liam. Things don’t stay the same of course. Like how head strong Juiles is trying to find where she belongs in Everless. With so many twist and turns this story takes. It was my favorite read for soon to be 2018. With some little romance, action and secrets to die for. This new fantasy debut will be an hit with everyone. Now the fun part. I am hosting an giveaway of the arc.

Please Enter and Goodluck

Happy Holiday and Reading!!!

{Waiting on Wednesday} Time Bomb by Joelle Charbonneau

So looking forward waiting this book. The summary and the cover draws me in a lot. I have read other Joelle Charbonneau book Dividing Eden and love that book. So looking forward her new stand alone. Here is summary and cover.

Summary:

A congressman’s daughter sick of her perfect image. A star quarterback with something to hide. A guy who’s tired of his summer crush ignoring his calls. A clarinet player who’s done trying to fit in–or trying at all. An orphaned rebel who wants to teach someone a lesson. A guy who wants people to see him, not his religion.

Diana, Frankie, Tad, Cas, Z, and Rashid couldn’t be more different, but before the morning’s over, they’ll all be trapped in a school that’s been rocked by a bombing. When they hear on the radio that the bomber is still inside they must quickly decide whether they’ll turn on one another or work together to get out alive, even as more bombs go off.

Told from multiple perspectives, this emotional thriller from the author of the heart-pounding Testing trilogy keeps you guessing until the final pages. Who is the real culprit? And what sparked the time bomb that had been just waiting to go off?

Release Date March 13, 2018

My New Crush Gave to Me by Shani Petroff

Book Summary:

Charlotte Charlie Donovan knows exactly what she wants for Christmas: Teo Ortiz. He s the school s star athlete, in the National Honor Society, invited to every party, contributes to the school paper (where Charlie is co-editor), and is about to be featured as One to Watch in a teen magazine basically, he’s exactly the type of guy Charlie s meant to be with. The only problem he barely knows she exists.

But Charlie is determined to be Teo’s date to the Christmas ball. And she has a plan: To rig the paper s Secret Santa so that she can win his heart with five perfect gifts. But to do that she needs help. Enter J.D. Ortiz Teo s cousin, and possibly the most annoying person on the planet. He s easy going, laid back, unorganized, spontaneous, and makes a joke out of everything the exact opposite of Charlie (and Teo). But he s willing to provide insight into what Teo wants, so shes stuck with him.

Yet, the more time Charlie spends with J.D., the more she starts to wonder: Does she really know what, or rather who, she wants for Christmas?

My Review:

In this new fluffy holiday read, Charlie is an upbeat girl and everything has to be perfect for her even her date to the school dance. This book reads like an 80s teen movie in a very good way. This positive book can cure any holiday blues out there. Charlie may seem annoying at first with her rules and with being perfect but at times I even laughed when she messes up which made her relatable. Charlie is not as perfect as she seems and with help with another classmate JD, will she be able to loosen up in time for the Christmas to start? This book has some fun, teen romance and we were all rooting for the underdog. In the end, can Charlie get the perfect Christmas she wants?

Happy Reading and Holiday!

The Dead List by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Summary:

It’s Ella’s senior year of high school and she and her best friend Linds plan to make it the best year ever. At Brock Cochran’s end of summer pool party, the girls vow to have as much fun as possible before they head off to different colleges next fall. But when Ella is mysteriously attacked on her way home from the party, everything changes. Ella’s carefree senior year plans disintegrate as she finds herself at the center of an attempted murder investigation.

Ella tries to move on, but her attacker isn’t done yet. He shows himself in the form of horrifying signs and symbols: a clown mask strewn on her bed, a dead bird in her backpack, a shadow moving past her window in the night. And as the weeks pass, it turns out that Ella isn’t the only one being tormented.

With the help of an old flame, Jensen Carver, and her friends and family, Ella tries to attain some sense of normalcy, but she can’t seem to shake the feeling that there’s a dark pattern hidden in the killer’s every move. Suddenly, even those in her innermost circle seem suspicious. In her seemingly safe West Virginia town, Ella starts to wonder who she can trust.

My Review:

What happens when girls go missing and and killer with an clown mask on the loose? Alot could go wrong, Ella is in the center of it all. Really did enjoy the story of this book a lot. You get an sense on what Ella is feeling when she gets attack. Everyone seems to be an suspect, and a nice twist at the end some may not see coming. This is an quick thriller with action, romance for older teens in it. Love the cover of the book, seeing the fear in Ella’s face and the killer behind her. Forget Santa list this year, go read and find out who is on the dead list. Happy Reading!

Before Merik returned from the dead…

Ryber Fortiza was a Sightwitch Sister at a secluded convent, waiting to be called by her goddess into the depths of the mountain. There she would receive the gift of foretelling. But when that call never comes, Ryber finds herself the only Sister without the Sight.

Years pass and Ryber’s misfit pain becomes a dull ache, until one day, Sisters who already possess the Sight are summoned into the mountain, never to return. Soon enough, Ryber is the only Sister left. Now, it is up to her to save her Sisters, though she does not have the Sight—and though she does not know what might await her inside the mountain.

On her journey underground, she encounters a young captain named Kullen Ikray, who has no memory of who he is or how he got there. Together, the two journey ever deeper in search of answers, their road filled with horrors, and what they find at the end of that road will alter the fate of the Witchlands forever.

The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas

Book Summary:

There are secrets around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about what happened there that last summer.
She and her childhood best friend Callie never talked about what they saw. Not before the trial. And certainly not after.
But ever since she left, Tessa has had questions. Things have never quite added up. And now she has to go back to Fayette–to Wyatt Stokes, sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie’s dead cousin; and to the one other person who may be hiding the truth.
Only the closer Tessa gets to what really happened, the closer she gets to a killer–and this time, it won’t be so easy to run away. From the Hardcover edition.

My Review:

This book was an fast pace thriller. It leaves you with so many question until the very end. There an killer on the loose and Tessa and Callie might be the only ones to solve it before it’s to late and an innocent man could get killed. I enjoy the story line to the book very much. The relationship between the girl after ten years a part was done good. So many twists and turns until the very end leaving you guessing who the killer is. In mood for an good thriller then you might enjoy this book. Happy Reading!

Things I’m Seeing Without You by Peter Bognanni

Book Summary:

Seventeen-year-old Tess Fowler has just dropped out of high school. She can barely function after learning of Jonah’s death. Jonah, the boy she’d traded banter with over texts and heartfelt e-mails.Jonah, the first boy she’d told she loved and the first boy to say it back. 

Jonah, the boy whose suicide she never saw coming. 

Tess continues to write to Jonah, as a way of processing her grief and confusion. But for now she finds solace in perhaps the unlikeliest of ways: by helping her father with his new alternative funeral business, where his biggest client is . . . a prized racehorse?

As Tess’s involvement in her father’s business grows, both find comfort in the clients they serve and in each other. But love, loss, and life are so much more complicated than Tess ever thought. Especially after she receives a message that turns her life upside down.My Review:

This book was an good read for me. You felt bad for the main character dealing with the lost of an guy she once loved. Tess just kinda throws her life away and goes into hiding just about. This book has some slow parts in it but has some nice twists in the middle. Get to see how much Tess grows from beginning to end. Hidden secrets she find out later about her boyfriend death will shock her world. If you likes books dealing with love and loss, some family issues, along with falling in love then you might enjoy reading Tess story. Can Tess overcome her grief before it’s to late?
