I always love strong heroines. I loved how she developed and became someone fierce and not looking back. I was so happy when she went up against Aubrey(who i love b/c he was kinda hot, but still hated at the same time) she defended him. Risika become Risika because of her brother, she wanted to avenge him. there's a BIG surprise at the end.(less)

If you haven't read it i Strongly recommend it(wow that rhythms). I loved every bit of it.It was EXCITING, FULL of ADVENTURE, ACTION PACKED, put a little ROMANCE in the Mix, and you got a great book. I love Katniss as a heroine,strong, caring and a unique individual.Who has a wicked arm with the bow and arrow. I felt like i was a literary a citizen in the book watching every bit of it happen.I was rooting for Katniss and Peeta the whole time. It was funny because when i read i tend to just say something random and out the blue, well i was kind of yelling at Katniss the whole time. I yelled "runaway!!!" and my sister just looked at me like i was crazy and was like shut up. I love this book. The sad thing is i have to wait for Catching Fire :((less)

WAKE is about a Girl named Janie, who finds herself falling into people's dreams, but not by choice.She realizes she could do this when she was little. I think the first time it happened she was on a train/bus. It's kind of becoming a pain in the butt as she gets her life into high school. I mean just think of all the dreams she falls into. I mean your arousing dreams,nightmares, the one where you stand NAKED in front of a bunch of people...nightmares, and the falling dreams(hate those)shesh..
This isn't just about Janie falling into dreams, she is trying to discover how to use dreams to her benefit.That's when she meets a guy and there's a love story to it but there's also a lot of mystery and suspense.I just really like this book.
O.k. To sum it all up... there's love, suspense, catching bad guys,there's Craziness!! It's well written, in the present tense, like it is happening as we speak.WAKE is an overall good book and on top of that it's a short book.So if your looking for a quick read it's just for you. (less)

Val finds her inner strength, learns to move on, and stops running away from her problems. I love this book, my favorite character Roiben (from book 1 Tithe) had a little part in the story, showing his new status as the Unseelie King with my other fav character Kaye by his side Yay. Great book can't wait to read Ironside(less)

Clary gets involve in that Dark fantasy world.Uncovers some of her moms secrets that weren't suppose to be found out, kill some monsters, and lets call it a day.I love how i could never predict whats going to happen next. Ever chapter was exiting, i was always like "OMG" or "what".I was a little disappointed in the End when it came to Clary and Jace's relationship, but i kind of looked for some spoilers to see if it was true. happy that its not YAY. Can't wait to read City Of Ashes!!!(less)

I loved the characters too, especially the troll- who seemed creepy and nasty at first but then was really nice and sweet.I remember i went to the library looking for christopher pike last vampire books and this one was all on the shelf gathering dust, i was like it's a C. Pike book it has got to be good so i checked it out and was done with it so fast, i was sad, i thought it was just one book. Then i looked it the back *heavenly sound* part two Shaktra. I HAVE to read the next one.(less)

The magical & musical elements of the story made this novel more fascinating and were put together beautify.
I loved the characters. I loved how Deidre progressed through the story. I love strong heroines that take action instead of being the victim. Luke is the tortured hero and I love how Maggie put him together as the story progressed. James is one of my favorite characters, he’s charming and funny and I can’t wait to read more about him.
I love stories that have forbidden love and it only made me root for the characters even more. When it came down to the final pages, I was like “No, I’m not ready for this story to end.” then it was over and i wanted more.I can’t wait for the sequel. Ballad is coming out October 1st 2009.(less)

Loved Livingston's writing, I was completely captivated and starstruck by the story and characters*Sonny*The characters come to life, they had that umph! .Kelley is an actress. She is an awesome female protagonist. I was instantly drawn to her character. She’s honest, she imperfect, and she's just real/ i could definitely relate to her.Now...Sonny..hmm..where do i start...Yeah, he is majorly cute, he kicks major faerie butt, he protects the mortal world from the mean faeries.. And he can rescues the girl even though she is mean to him.
So great plot, characters. Awesome writing. I can't say anymore, so let me stop myself before i just spoil it all lol:D
You have to read this book.Wondrous Strange is one novel that shouldn't be passed up . Even if you don’t like fairy stories, you should still give this a try. It’s Amazing! I highly recommend you grab a copy.Now I have to get my hands on Darklight! :D(less)

Zara has been seeing this stalker like guy almost everywhere.Who is this Guy? What does he want? In Maine guys start to go missing,maybe moving to Maine was a bad idea.
The characters were cool. Nick, who doesn't like Nick. Issie is just so funny and quirky. Devlyn he is just sweet and adorable (in a manly kind of way) Grandma Betty is just hilarious. Zara you is weird but in a good way.She collects phobia's(Each chapter is named after a phobia that expresses the chapter well)and hates the cold/snow.I loved that as the book progresses Zara comes out of her shell more. The Pixies are like Melissa Marr's Fairies, well that's how i imagined them.
I would recommend this book because it will draw you in farther. Your in for A BIG surprised at the end. It had me saying OMG.Also, look out for the sequel, CAPTIVATE, which is being released in December 2009 or January 2010.YAY!!!!(less)

I guess i was drawn to the way it was written and Kristina's struggle with the monstert. She got so lost, while i was reading it, it just kept on kristina's struggle, there was never any spark of "something goods gonna happen". I was hoping for something good to happen.it was so intense, it made me think.... I'll definitely continue Ellen Hopkins books.(less)

I have never read anything like it, but i was drawn to how it was written.I admire Jackson, he just wanted what was best for Ava, but she was just doing the opposite, Then she realizes Jackson just wants her to be happy. Its an emotional read, I would hand this to a teen who lost someone just for that feeling of absolution and acceptance that life does go on.(less)

On outside, she has a great life, but her perfect persona is just a cover-up for her troubled home life. She feel's She has to be in control and be perfect because her sister isn't.
Southsider Alex Fuentes has a bad-boy reputation, but all he wants is to get out of his gang and graduate.
So when they are partnered together in chemistry class, life starts to make more sense. Written from both Brittany and Alex's perspective, this story shows what's going on below the surface for each person as they break through stereotypes and expectations that threaten to keep them apart.
This is like a modernized Shakespeare story of Romeo and Juliet, story similar to R&J tend to get boring and too original. PERFECT CHEMISTRY is not one of those books. It was addicting and the story was vibrant. The characters came to life and it was like I was there watching the story unfold.
The way Simone Elkeles wrote the story was absolutely perfect. I absolutely love the story. There were some parts that I literally cried, laughed, and screamed because I was so frustrated. Overall, it's an fantastic read and totally chick-lit. It's an stunning love story that will keep you turning the page to find out what happens. I will so definitely be re reading this one. This book was simply wonderful. I know some people might get annoyed with the whole star crossed lovers living on the opposite sides of town fall for each other. But really... this book totally changes the story by the details of the two main characters and that's what really did it for me.(less)

I guess i'm going to be saying that until there is no next one(OH no!!)
School's Out forever was very fast pace. I was hooked after i read the first page. I really enjoyed this book.Max and the Flock, they are all awesome. Iggy and Gassman are just hilarious and devious. They are obsessed with bombs. When a bomb goes off and the ceiling just fell down on you, their just like "that was awesome." Max and Fang..... just never mind. You get to know Ari a lot more(even though he's a "big evil eraser" u just got to luv him) But i still have my questions, like is Max really suppose to "save the world or is it a big game?" who is the voice? so i think those questions will be answered as i keep reading the series.Ultimately the story was awesome. Now i have get the next one....(less)
