As I read through from page one, I immediately loved Katniss (MC). She's a go getter, and that's the type of girl I like. Katniss starts narrating her life immediately letting us know what her life is like in this genius post apocalyptic story. Suzanne Collins offers flashbacks of Katniss' life, genuinely making me feel so sorry for what she's had to endure, and making her a very believable character. The story flows so easily and steadily that before you know it you've made your way through chapters without noticing. I don't know about anyone else, but at times, I willed back the tears, and I am NOT a crier. Yes, it is that good. I'm sorry I can only give it 5 stars. I would've rated it higher if I could. ...more

Struggling with school and having a crush on a boy that's spoken for become the least of Michele's worries when she meets Elliot in a rather unconventStruggling with school and having a crush on a boy that's spoken for become the least of Michele's worries when she meets Elliot in a rather unconventional way - falling over a wall while snooping in Elliot's private school's backyard. Michele finds herself peering into the bluest and most mysterious eyes she's ever seen, and then falling again, but this time her fall is emotional rather than physical.
It's in the town of Willow's Creek where Elliot and Michele's story blossoms from several encounters leading way to a whirlwind of unexpected events. Elliot's past is intriguing and adventurous and sometimes dark, which has Michele's appeal for the boy at the highest peak. Michele, who's eager to find out exactly who this gorgeous boy is and where he comes from, is in for the adventure of her life and quite possibly the most ill fate.
Comprised of all-inclusive tales from Elliot's past and Michele's emotional coils, Author A. Jacob Sweeny delivers a story with both historical and heart felt fascination for her readers. Sweeney's writing beautifully reflects her knowledge of the eras in which the characters' narratives take place. The antagonist and protagonist characters' personalities are well thought out and equipped with traits that will embed themselves into the hearts of many without effort.
Dive into this fantastic world of romance, thrills and mystery and make A. Jacob Sweeny's book, "Pulse of Heroes" a weekend getaway. You won't regret it.

In the beginning, and plainly basing my opinion on the prologue, I was doubting that this was my sort of story, but when I reached the end of chapter one, it was then that it caught my curiosity. And so, I kept reading. I must admit that I wasn't partial to Tessa (MC) in the beginning. I don't much like prissy girls, but as the story unfolded with suspense and thrills, Tessa slowly cast off her innocent-girl personality and grew into the type of girl I like: courageous and verbally unrestrained.
My favorite character overall is William Herondale. He has a quirky, bad boy attitude and makes humorous remarks that made me chuckle. I heart him! Though I would've liked a little more, Cassandra Clare did not give in. darn it! I guess I'll have to read "Clockwork Prince" to find out what happens next.

This book has the same action and fast paced sequence as the last, but with an edgier Katniss. In this book, Peeta is determined to protect Katniss at all cost. What girl wouldn't fall in love with a guy like that? And who knew Haymitch was a genius? Without divulging the story, all I can say is that this series is a dystopian storyteller's marvel! ...more

Ward Foley shares his experience of being born with multiple birth defects and growing up different. Simple tasks like brushing his teeth are an every day challenge for him. After enduring decades of surgery, he's learned not to complain, even when life hands him more lemons than he needs. I suppose it's very difficult for Mr. Foley to make lemonade with his physical limitations, when even holding a brush to his mouth is a task. When most of us would have thrown in the towel, Ward Foley only pushes harder.
Admirably, Mr. Foley uses both the bad and good experiences to make a difference in people's lives. In his book, he details accounts of unexplainable blessings and the darkest of times he's endured. "Thank My Lucky Scars" is written as if it were a close friend telling you his life story. As I laughed, cried and empathized with Mr. Foley, I found in his words wisdom and lessons that I shall never forget.
Thank you, Ward Foley, for gifting me your book. As I look at the first page where you've dedicated it to me, I realize how writing those words was nothing short of a feat for you. I will treasure your book always.

Tiger Lily is the adoptive daughter of the tribe's shaman, Tick Tock, who lets her roam as free as her untamed spirit allows. You may think that being the daughter of a shaman would have its perks, but the village people believe that Tiger Lily is cursed, leaving her with very few friends. One day, Tiger Lily finds that she's wandered into the Forbidden area of Neverland, and before she has time to react, Peter Pan takes her prisoner. Of course Tiger Lily is well versed in being as wild as Peter and his Lost Boys, perhaps even more wild than they. After Tiger Lily takes down Peter Pan (oh yes, she's feisty!), a new friendship is formed and soon enough, these two young creatures fall in love. But with the arrival of a doll-like English girl named Wendy and a sequence of events that no one foresees, things between the two wild love birds change and heartbroken Tiger Lily simply won't have it.
Non-aging kids running free in the jungle, being chased by pirates and loved by fairies and mermaids is the sort of story that makes you want to be a kid again and stay that way forever. When I finished reading Ms. Anderson's rendition of her story of Neverland, I wanted to be whisked away to this enchanted place and see it with my own eyes. I thought about the story for days after I had read it, unable to pick up the pieces of my shattered little heart, and you'll understand why once you've had the opportunity to experience Anderson's world through Tinker Bell's words. Absolutely magical!
