{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!!!

Sure she is stressed out about college applications . . . who wouldn’t be? In a few short months, everything’s going to change, big time.
But when Ally files her applications, they send up a red flag . . . because she’s not Allison Smith. And Ally’s-make that Amanda’s-ordinary life is suddenly blown apart. Was everything before a lie? Who will she be after? And what will she do as now comes crashing down around her?

My Review:

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.

Ally has this prefect life with her father. They do everything together and live in a nice town so everyone is like family to her. When she starts filling out college applications, her life gets turn upside.

Her father gets arrested for kidnapping. Ally find out she has this new life with a new family. She is so torn to leave the life her father have given her. 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. This book is heartfelt read and trying to understand how this all happen. Hopefully for Ally sake she can find closure at the end. If you looking for a new read, you might like this 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!!!

My Review:

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.

Happy Reading!!!

{Arc Review} Run, Hide, Fight Back by April Henry

Book Summary:
Six teens must band together to survive after a shooting breaks out.
When a deadly shooting breaks out in a Portland shopping mall, a diverse group of teens ends up trapped behind a store’s security shutter. To her own surprise, seventeen-year-old Miranda finds the others looking to her as their leader. But she’s hiding a big secret—and she’s not the only one. The group has only three choices—run, hide, or fight back. The wrong decision will have fatal consequences.

My Review:

Run, Hide, Fight Back was a very intense read. I kinda hold off reviewing since that shooting at the mall happen. This book storyline revolves around a mall shooting also. Some of the characters go to the same school when it happens.

The story centers around Miranda and her school friends. After she steals some make up from the mall, that’s when the shooting happens. She watches someone die in the food court. She quickly runs for cover with other survivors. With so many shooters in the mall, will they be able to work together and fight back?

This book told in some points of views. Get some back story on the characters past and why there at mall at first place. There a lot sensitive issues in this read and very heavy read. I did liked this book and it was good story and the cover is a nice touch. The book comes out August 27th if you want to try it out.

{Arc Review & Giveaway} Crown of Coral and Pearl by Mara Rutherford

Book Summary:
For generations, the princes of Ilara have married the most beautiful maidens from the ocean village of Varenia. But though every girl longs to be chosen as the next princess, the cost of becoming royalty is higher than any of them could ever imagine…
Nor once dreamed of seeing the wondrous wealth and beauty of Ilara, the kingdom that’s ruled her village for as long as anyone can remember. But when a childhood accident left her with a permanent scar, it became clear that her identical twin sister, Zadie, would likely be chosen to marry the Crown Prince—while Nor remained behind, unable to ever set foot on land.
Then Zadie is gravely injured, and Nor is sent to Ilara in her place. To Nor’s dismay, her future husband, Prince Ceren, is as forbidding and cold as his home—a castle carved into a mountain and devoid of sunlight. And as she grows closer to Ceren’s brother, the charming Prince Talin, Nor uncovers startling truths about a failing royal bloodline, a murdered queen… and a plot to destroy the home she was once so eager to leave.
In order to save her people, Nor must learn to negotiate the treacherous protocols of a court where lies reign and obsession rules. But discovering her own formidable strength may be the one move that costs her everything: the crown, Varenia and Zadie.

My Review:

Crown of Coral and Pearl is such a great read. I really liked this book. The storyline was so good and I’ve fallen in love with the characters. This is one book that you must add to your TBR.

Nor and Zadie are twin sisters, they grew up thinking being beautiful will get you far in life. When an accident leaves Nor’s cheek scarred, it’s up to Zadie to become the king’s bride. Yet, Zadie dreams of staying home and marrying her best friend.

When Zadie is chosen to leave the island, she panics and forces her sister to do the unthinkable. Now it’s up to Nor to pretend to be Zadie and protect her family from the prince’s wraith. Will she be able to fool the prince?

This book was such a fast paced read. The sisters bond for each other is well written. They would do anything to help each other out. The world itself is amazing and pretty neat on the magical aspects of it. If you’re looking to start a new fantasy read, then you’ll be in luck with this book.

Crown of Coral and Pearl comes out August 27th.
