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.
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.
Rachel is a survivor in the book. She beaten cancer and is next on the chain. When she head to her doctor appointment, the unthinkable happen. 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 Like Wings is a must read. I really did enjoyed this book. I was hooked with the storyline and the characters growth.
It’s a miracle Ava is alive after surviving a house fire. She lost her family and cousin that day also. Within a year of hiding at her aunt house, it’s time for her to venture the outside world. Scars of the past still haunts her, she starts school at a new place. Which is not easy when people start treating you differently.
Will Ava be able to find herself again and start letting people in?
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.
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!!!
Past, Prefect, Life was such a good read. I liked the heartfelt storyline and was very connected with some of the characters in the book. A prefect story about family and finding yourself.

She is force to leave everything behind and get to know her new family, but what she longs for her old life back. How will Ally handle these new challenges in her life?
This book is about finding one self and where they belong. Ally’s father made a mistake, but it doesn’t mean he is this bad guy. He raised Ally best he can, they had food and roof over their heads.

The Best Lies was such a thrill ride. I really did enjoy the story and love the characters in it.
Remy and Elise are prefect for each other. They been through a lot of tough times together and are hardly ever a part. What happens when one of them just snap?
Right off bat the book starts off with Jack’s death. It is told in flashbacks on Remy and Elise friendship, and up until that night. With Remy still in shock and trying to come into grips what happen. Is she willing to protect Elise, and what really happen to Jack?
This book was a roller coaster ride. I really was hooked onto the story from begining until to end. I’m glad I picked it on sale for 50% at barnes and nobles, and gave it a shot. The cover is so sweet and innocent. Could read this book over and over again. If your in mood for some new mystery/thriller reads, you’ll be in for a treat.
Maybe this Time is a good summer read. Especially after I been reading some so many heavy and fantasy reads. I always like Kasie West books. Yea her books are always predictable for me. Her new one has some fun laughs with the main the characters and the story was pretty cute.
Sophie is a hard worker, she loves putting together the flowers for events. Her dream is to go to NYC and become a fashion designer. Then a change is coming for work and Andrew might detailed her plans.
I found it funny at times how Andrew and Sophie butt heads all the time throughout the book. Also like seeing the friendship between Micah and Sophie. The girls are close and are like sisters. What will become of Sophie during the course of the year?
This was another fast read, which I like. The cover is cute also for the summer. It mostly Sophie discovering what she wants in life with help from her best friend and new guy Andrew. Looking for something fun, than this book is for you. This book just recently came out this week.
