I had my doubts when I picked this but after finishing the book I just loved it.
I only picked this book because the blurb sounded unique and also because of "merfolks" which is one of my favorite mythical creatures.The whole plot is centered around the place named Coney Island.It's been three years when the ocean dwelling warriors named themselves as "Alpha", came to live at the beach situated at the Coney Island which is now considered as the zone.
The main protagonist in this plot is Lyric Walker who is the resident of Coney Island and also a student in Hylan High School.Lyric is really a brave, caring and sometimes rebellious character who always loves her family and also loyal towards her friends Bex and Tito.The friendship between Bex and Lyric potrayed really well.The whole plot is unique and mysterious which was enough for me to hooked to it till the end.
The book started with the whole place in uproar when the government and the Alpha has come to a mutual understanding and decided that the Alpha children can also attend the high school alongside humans with high security provided.Six Young Alpha's have started attending Hylan High and one of them is Fathom who is also the prince of his race.There were so many protests at outside and even in high school with all the bullying.Lyric Walker is asked to lay low and not interact with the Alpha's in anyway, but trouble always finds her and she ends up being the one to spend the time with Fathom everyday.
The first half of the book is slow paced with all the high school drama, bullying etc., and the real deal starts at the second half which is fast paced and action packed.It was total entertainment all the way through.Fathom is a hard character to get to know but he was really amazing and also got an captivating personality.The forbidden chemistry between Lryic and Fathom is good but not that great. Thankfully there was no complicated triangle in it.
This is my first book that I've read from this author and I must say It was well written plot with perfection.After finishing the first book now I'm in serious need of the second installation.I'll definitely read the second book to know what's gonna happen with Lyric and Fathom, and I highly recommend this. ...more

Disney Fairy tales like Cinderella, snowwhite, beauty and the beast etc., depicts magical and romantic fairy tale experience but the "The Arabian Nights is all about adventure, fantasy and love.Well coming to the current book "The Wrath and The Dawn" is really a captivating story which is quite mysterious and romantic in it's own way.I felt the cover looked weird but the blurb looked interesting so I gave it a try and now I'm quite satisfied and I got more than I expected.
Shahrzad is a fun,kick-ass girl who is always brave and sometimes stubborn and also got a potty mouth on her. Even Knowing the consequences of being the new queen of Khalid she volunteers to be his bride with revenge on her mind.She wanted to take her revenge on Khalid for murdering her best friend Shiva who was also one of the previous brides of Khalid.After the first encounter with Caliph of Khorasan she realises that he was different from what she thought.She has survived to see the next sunrise where no other previous brides has succeeded by telling a story to Khalid which eventually led him to let her live one more day and finish the story.From there on every night became story telling nights.With each days passing she starts to get attracted towards Khalid which is a big obstacle to her revenge.So she starts to get curious and wants to know about the reason and the mystery behind all the killings so she can punish him for his deeds and forget about her inner turmoils.It was a emotional read for me with all the anger, hurt, frustration, and forbidden love.
Khalid is a man of mystery who is always quite and always keeps his feelings to himself and doesn't show it on his face.At the first meeting with Shahrzad he gets bewildered with her attitude and gets totally charmed by her stubbornness and with time he slowly begins to express his feelings towards her.Khalid may look cold on the outside but inside he is really brave and caring man with a violent past. The Character Tariq is a childhood best friend and also lover to shazi who wants to rescue her from Caliph of Khorasan, so a triangle can be predicted. Jalal who is quite flirty in nature and Despina who is both sarcastic and quite amusing, are interesting characters in this plot that I've really liked to know.
The story is slow paced and if you are looking for a fast paced action scenes in it then I must say you may not like it. And it is also narrated in multiple POV. The Author done a marvellous job in weaving this wonderful tale.The book ended with a cliffhanger which was a torture because I hate cliffhangers but I'll definitely wait for the next installment. Do I recommend it? a big "Yes" but don't expect too much from it....more
This book is more like a fun and quirky read with lots of witchery stuff. It felt more like a Disney movie styled book and I think It can be suitableThis book is more like a fun and quirky read with lots of witchery stuff. It felt more like a Disney movie styled book and I think It can be suitable for middle grader's also. The author has put lots of efforts in building this magical setting.I'd picked this book because of the interesting synopsis and that cute cover.It was a really an entertaining read that'll make you stick with it till the end.
Camelia is a fun and quick witty girl that you would love to know.She is adopted by a wicked witch and does everyday chores for her. The witch thinks that learning spells is more important than School and makes her learn spells that she already knows she isn't capable of.Everyday she was ordered by the witch with a list of ingredients to be collected, stuff like Goat's blood and pig's ear etc.Cam also got a dragon in her garage which she looks after and a werewolf pup.The first time when Cam meets Devon at the bus stop is really hilarious.
The wicked witch wants to summon a demon so she can control the world and also to make them aware of the power of the witches.For summoning the demon, she gives a list of ingredients to be collected to Cam, and cam struggles to stop the witches plan, however the witch is more clever and the Demon is Summoned.During the summoning something goes wrong and the Demon enters into the cute boy named Devon who she has a crush on. The Witch sets a Contract with the demon to find the Phoenix before it blows up the school with it's Phoenix fire on Halloween night. Now Cam's only goal is to get the Demon out of the Devon after the Demon completes his contract before she completely loses him forever.
I can say it was a good plot but It wasn't a mind blowing read for me.I felt something lacking in it that made me feel not so exciting, so maybe the problem was with me and I think others may like it more.There were some unwanted parts which I think wasn't necessary, so it got me slightly bored. There were also some twists in this book that I didn't expected.There was also some romance in it but don't expect too much, the whole book was focused on the struggles of Cam in which she was making sure the demon wouldn't cause any more problems in her school. It got all the fantasy feel in the modern day with pixies,dragons, witches and some references about other mythical creatures.If you are looking for a quick fantasy read with witches in it, then this book is definitely for you....more
This book oozes total cuteness, I mean Cute cover, Cute plot and cute guy <3.While reading this I always had a smiley face through out the book.I gThis book oozes total cuteness, I mean Cute cover, Cute plot and cute guy <3.While reading this I always had a smiley face through out the book.I got what I expected from this book so I'm happy with it.It is one of my highly anticipated books so It's totally worth all the waiting.
The writing style of the book is easy to understand and perfect.The plot was nothing new, same old high school drama with a twist but once you're in you are hooked.All the characters are well created and connected.The story is narrated in Gia's POV and we can easily get connected to her.The story looked so realistic that made me forgot about my surroundings, it's like I was drowned inside the book.
The Character Gia is truly a cute, fun loving high school Girl we can easily get to know.On the prom day when her boyfriend Bradley break-ups with her at the parking lot, she sees some cute guy who was there at the parking lot who was waiting to pick up his sister Bec.She asks the cute guy(who also witnessed the whole break-up) to pretend as her Fill-In-Bradley.
He was still looking at me like I was crazy. I felt crazy. “You want me to pretend to be Captain America?”
Gia's friends didn't met Bradley before and they think that she is bluffing about having a boyfriend especially Jules who will take most pleasure in making it true.From then on the whole drama begins and finally she comes to realize what's real and what's not, and what she's missing in her life.
I really liked Gia and Fill-In-Bradley they'd make a cute couple.There are some many cliché's in it,some may like them or some may not but In this book,I got no problem with it. Gia's got a over perfect parents who always hides their emotions with a perfect smile on their faces. Gia's brother Drew is a total jerk who uses her as a subject for his project without even asking for her permission, and he wasn't even sorry about it.At start I thought Gia's family is a perfectly weird family, and at last I come to know it was only a facade and at the end of the book they come to realization that being perfect is not so great, which was well portrayed.The friends of Gia I don't know why she endures them, honestly I didn't like them at all, Bec is so much better than them who understands her more, who always listens to her ramblings.This book covers all the factors like friendship, family and love.
It was my first book from Kasie West and it was really fabulous and now i'm definitely gonna check out her other works.This book is a perfection with slight flaws but they can be overlooked with all the drama going on.I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who are looking for a cute and fun read....more

Just Wow! I expected something dark and got something else which was mind blowing and didn't expected that this story would turn out into something that came as a total Surprise for me.I had a great time reading this, while the first half of the book didn't woo me much but the second half just totally changed my mind.It was a roller coaster of raw emotions with all the rage, hurt,love and anger.
I didn't read the first two books but this book's synopsis peaked my interest and it can also be read as a standalone without having to read previous books.The first half of the book is all about Ethan in despair because his ex-girlfriend has left him for Spencer Blackwell who was also lead protagonist in the previous book.I didn't know much about all the drama behind Spencer Blackwell and Ethan but I think it wasn't needed to know.
At first I was really annoyed with Ethan who got issues and thinks his life is ruined because he was dumped by his girlfriend who left him for somebody else.Everyday he goes to bar drinks up until he was passed out and got controlled by the anger and rage left inside him.He always thinks about how he's gonna take his revenge on Spencer Blackwell who stole his girlfriend Cricket from him.His life changes when he meets his high school friend Sophie price who drags him out from the darkness and shows the light in his life.After the change in him he was much better than the old Ethan who was filled with revenge in his mind and lost control with himself.Sophie was really a brave character with a dark past, she has gone through a past which was truly frightening and always kept a facade on her face that tells everyone something else.I felt very sad for what awful things happened to her in her past. I've liked that there was no rush in development of feelings between Ethan and Sophie and how those feelings turned into love.
The book was narrated in both Ethan and Sophie POV which made me better understanding of the characters and how they felt for each other, and what inner turmoils they were having.The original story begins when Sophie leaves for Vietnam for a year for doing a charity which in truth was a lie.When Ethan finds out about the reason behind her going to Vietnam and knows that the thing she was involved in is really dangerous, he goes to Vietnam to protect her. After meeting Sophie in Vietnam he persuades her about giving his help and protection.He gets a high adrenaline rush after the first rescue mission and he starts to crave for more and goes a total vigilante at night. All the action in this book is really fantastic and I loved It, It was like watching an Kickass Action movie.
The story was well crafted and liked the way author described North East Vietnam in Ethan's POV. I think this book can also be read by the Young-adult except if they have problem with the human trafficking, prostitution etc and there were no explicit scenes in this book.If it wasn't for the action in the Vietnam I would've DNFing it, so 3.5 stars from me because of the all the Heart stopping action, wonderful plot, and characters, and I think many people would definitely like it. ...more
I just picked it up due to the cute cover and the intriguing synopsis, and I didn't expected much from it either.Simply I just liked this book but I dI just picked it up due to the cute cover and the intriguing synopsis, and I didn't expected much from it either.Simply I just liked this book but I didn't loved it that much. It was really a thought provoking story and related to cyber bullying happening now a days.
What I liked most about this book was the moral of the story and it also shows that, how by taking certain actions can effect each people in your life whether they are family,friends or the people you may know.It seemed very realistic and well detailed.The story is about Lara who attempts suicide after reading hateful comments from christian, who she met in facebook and chatted with him through online and she never even met him face to face.The twist with the Christian I didn't saw it coming.
What i didn't like in this book was the female protagonist who seemed too much dumb to me, I mean you don’t attempt suicide for a guy who you met through online only.The thing with Bree and her mother didn't seemed right to me.Sometimes I got too much annoyed with Sydney’s tantrums, she always behaved like she was 6 years old. Liam is the character I liked the most in this book because he seemed more mature than his mother and sister.
The main aspect of the story is cyber bullying and how it can affect the young minds which makes them fall into depression and social withdrawal which ultimately leads them to attempt suicide.Now a days it’s all about how many likes you got in Facebook or any other social website and commenting mean things without any care or thinking.
The whole book is narrated in multiple POV which I basically don’t like much, but I think it was necessary for this book.Even though it was well written plot I felt something lacking with the character’s emotions.Even if there were some flaws i’d still say it was a good book and I do think it should be read by everyone....more
I had eagerly waited for this book's release after I completed the first book and now after I completed this book, I got into the same situation againI had eagerly waited for this book's release after I completed the first book and now after I completed this book, I got into the same situation again with more intensity. OK this book was packed with more action which lacked in the first one and the story picks up where it was left off in the first book. I've really really enjoyed reading this sequel because it got full kickass action till the end. I've got to give props to Author Kagawa for writing such a minding blowing sequel.
This book contains multiple pov's which made each characters feelings very clear and realistic that made me more connected to them.In this we get to know more about cobalt aka Riley who once worked for Talon and what made him turned Rogue.The first book was more focused on Ember and Garret, but in the sequel it was all about Ember,Riley and Garret.It was strange and weird about how dragons can communicate with humans when they are in the dragon form.It can be predicted that there would be a triangle relationship after how the first book ended.Garret is my favorite character and i will always root for him.
Ember got mixed feelings for both Riley and Garret who are vying for her affections.Honestly I was really irritated with Ember with how irresponsible she is sometimes when she is on the chase from both Talon and St.George.For all the fans out there who like Garret, after reading this you would really hate Ember so much.
The heart wrenching scene at the end left me with tears and i didn't expected it to turn out like that OMG I feel so sad.
This book got all the action that you wouldn’t want to miss and you get to know more about both Talon’s world and Rogue’s organization.The next book is about St.George and I can’t wait to read it, with this mind blowing sequel, I'm pretty much excited about how the next installment gonna turn out....more
I don't know how to rate this book, my feelings for this book is pretty unclear and confusing because i didn't loved it or hate it either.The synopsisI don't know how to rate this book, my feelings for this book is pretty unclear and confusing because i didn't loved it or hate it either.The synopsis spoke so many good things and looked something new.I had so many expectations with this book but after reading it, I was totally disappointed.It was my first book from the author, so I have no idea about her other works, but still I gave it a try because of its unique plot and when I finally got it in my hands I just jumped with excitement in my head but alas, it didn't stay the same after reading it.
The story started good after some time it totally went down hill and nothing exciting happened until the end.I felt, like I was reading a regency novel not a dystopian novel.The story was slow paced and lengthy.In most parts of this book i felt bored.When coming to the writing skills let's say I was slightly struggled with it, the writing seemed like it was meant for the PRO readers.The story is narrated in multiple pov and did i liked it nope, i don't like books containing more than three pov's it would've been better if it got only major characters POV.The pacing of this story is a total snail walk which would surely make us want to skip it to the end.
I must agree that the plot was good but it was lacking action and exciting scenes where you could go crazy.Honestly I only liked starting phase and ending phase of the book because only those seemed more exciting parts of the book.To me Sophia is a total adventurous and fun girl and Rene is a total mystery guy with mysterious agenda.All the characters are well connected.
The thing with Sophia and Spear was a total disaster, though I felt bad for him in the end.Our villain in the story "Le Blanc" is a total lunatic guy and pretty much insane.It seemed really funny about how the things which contained printed words "Diet" on it are considered more expensive than other things.The chemistry between Sophia and Rene is good but i felt something lacking from the Rene's side.There were some twists in this book that made me want to continue otherwise i was close to DNF'ing it.
Finally i can say that this book got it pro's and con's, and I think it may be enjoyed more by others.I did see some people loved it and some not, and i'm definitely from the not category.Actually I wanted to give it 2 stars but for the plot i gave it a 3 star rating.I don't want to judge it as a bad book it's only that, it didn't excite me much but i'd recommend it. ...more

The Only good thing that i liked about this book was its interesting plot and the authors creative imagination.There were too many characters with unusual names that was pretty hard to follow.The story was told in Kiar's and Tiana's pov's that made it more difficult to follow because sometimes i've confused Kiar with Tiana.I don't know who is the protagonist in the story but I've liked Kiar more than Tiana. The battle at the end was what made me more frustrated argh........
There was no description about some things like eidolon and logos and it took me a while for me understand what they are meant and it would've been better, if there was some more background story was provided so that we could understand the world with more clarity.Aside from the writing skills and corrections i think it would be a great book. ...more

Fairies are one of my favorite mythical beings and I’d love to explore myself with the fae world. I’d really like to thank netgalley and the publisher for letting me review this wonderful book. It’s a great YA debut from the author Angelica R. Jackson, it was really an awesome book that made me feel happy and sad after I finished reading it.
When Avery visits her uncle Tam she was really eager to meet her crush Daniel, who lives in the same neighborhood. Last time Avery left Daniel with a kiss who is still confused about their relationship and they always sent text messages with each other. Avery Was very determined to make Daniel her boyfriend. Even after arriving at her Uncle's house, she gets no visit from him, except his dog Bobbin who acts strange. She observes something wrong with Daniel's dog and she gets really freaked out when the dog understands everything she says.When Avery learns about the condition of Daniel she feels totally devastated. After when Daniel wakes from his death bed, he seems totally different like he is a perfect opposite to the Daniel she knew who was always shy.
What I most liked about Avery is she is a funny, realistic person who doesn't have a censor in her mouth and says whatever she has in her mind. Even though she is scared she was always brave and also funny in scary situations. Well, coming to the new Daniel he got a totally hot bod and expresses no shyness in physical intimacy. There was no lack in the Chemistry between the two main protagonists, it was pretty much intense and scorching. Another thing I really liked is the Car "Nykur" which was beyond cool and it would be every body's dream car.
Everything in this book is perfect with all the plot, characters and story building. Even though it was a fresh debut from the author you don't find any flaws in it, her writing skills are perfect and it was pretty easy to understand. From the start till the end, I wasn't bored at anywhere and I just completed it in one sitting. I'd really like to thank the author for writing such an amazing and hilarious book. It was really sad that it was a stand alone book, but I'll be looking forward to the author's next work and I'd highly recommend everyone to read it because it's a damn good book....more

It took me some time to finish this book because the story started with a good start but there was only very few exciting parts, the story is really slow paced and there was hell of a journey that took hell of a time and it pretty much made me think when are they gonna reach the destination.The story is explained in a multiple pov’s which made the better understanding of the story in both worlds but it didn’t made me that much excited because of too much lack of action but it doesn’t lack in adventure and it is the only thing that made me want to continue.
Rowan Greenwood is a young woman who belongs to Darmid always has a fascination towards magical creatures and liked reading fairy tales which is considered forbidden in their country.One day Rowan finds a wounded eagle and saves it from the Darmid hunters.While looking after the wounds of the mysterious bird Rowan accidentally heals the bird which is considered a powerful magic. Aren who belongs to Tyrea is ordered by his brother severn (who is also a king to Tyrea and evil villain in the story) to bring him a Sorcerer. Aren who is feared by most and also considered to be enemy to Darmid people comes to Darmid in search of a new sorcerer who are becoming extinct due to the killings by the Darmid Hunters who hunt anyone having magic in their veins.When Aren and Rowen paths cross, their life won’t be the same where many questions arises, and they journey together for seeking the answers.During the journey Rowan feels that her dream had finally came true and enjoys the world of magic and slowly begins to get attracted towards her enemy.
It was really a high fantasy read with all the magic, dragons, fairies, mermaids,evil villain and not to forget a prince.I would’ve liked it more if there was more action between Severn and Aren or Rowan which would’ve made it more exciting but nevertheless it was a good fantasy read.It was really a compelling story with a fascinating world that would make you go crazy....more
"Duff" was my all time favorite book and it was also one of my most favorite book by Kody Keplinger. It's been so long when i first read that book and"Duff" was my all time favorite book and it was also one of my most favorite book by Kody Keplinger. It's been so long when i first read that book and after so long being back in it made me soo much happy.After hearing that there would be a companion novel to it I just overwhelmed with joy. Kody Keplinger is one of my favorite authors, I just love her books.I truly enjoyed myself reading this book but honestly speaking, it didn't beat out "Duff".
The moment I entered into this world I just couldn't keep my eyes off from it.The best thing about this book were the Cameo appearances of Wes and bianca and also other characters from Midsummer's Nightmare,Shut out and Secrets and Lies. Sonny Ardmore is a hilarious character who got a special talent in Lying and masking her emotions with lies.She lives with her best friend Amy who is more like a sister to her and was always there for her whenever she needed.
Ryder is a new student in Hamilton High who is filthy rich and always acts like a total douche bag towards Sonny but he got a secret crush towards her best friend Amy.After knowing the real Ryder, Sonny starts to get attracted to him and begins to IMing him constantly with Amy's account.Ryder thinks that he was chatting with Amy but in reality it was Sonny he was chatting with.Sonny persuades Amy to pretend like she was the one IMing him until she can make him realise that she was better than Amy.Hence begins the web of lies which ultimately leads her to a disaster and complicates her relationship with both Ryder and Amy.
Sonny is a character you can easily get connected and she always hides her nervousness and insecurity with lies.Another best thing about this book is the friendship between Amy and Sonny.Loved the cameo appearances of Amy's brother Wesley and Bianca even though they are short.The characters in the story are well build and the plot is truly perfect.When the truth behind "being kicked out from home by her mom" was revealed I felt really sad for her, it was really heart wrenching scene and nearly brought me to tears. I truly wanted to give it a 5 Star rating but i think it wasn't as great as "Duff" but still it was an awesome read.I hope that the next book would be about Amy....more
This book is more like a ticking time bomb which makes the whole journey more intense and exciting.It totally blown my mind off seriously with all theThis book is more like a ticking time bomb which makes the whole journey more intense and exciting.It totally blown my mind off seriously with all the emotional and gut wrenching situations and i just couldn't keep my eyes off from it even for one second, and just completed this in one sitting.It was really a thought provoking story where it relates to the reality of the situation facing by the young people nowadays with all the abuse and bullying.
~A lot can change in the space between devising a plan and carrying it out. That space is called the INTERIM.~
I must applaud the author for writing such a tremendously amazing and emotional eye opening story which is close to reality.She breathed life into the words which made them seem more realistic that you could feel all the emotions going through by the characters.Miss Walden well portrayed the character named Jeremy where he finds redemption in the form of love which is a best healer for any emotionally broken people.All the raw emotions felt by Jeremy are well described in the form of journal writings.The Chapters headings are titled in the form of countdown to the ultimate showdown which made the whole journey more intense and suspenseful.
"To the lonely and brokenhearted. And to the ones who fight for them"
Jeremy Stahl is a lonely broken soul who is constantly abused by his father since he was young by being a punching bag when he was drunk, and a laughing stalk in his high school. If being abused by his father is not enough he was always bullied in the school which ultimately leads him to a breaking point.When it seemed he was totally broken he thought enough is enough and then he made a list of targets in his Red Journal where it specifically described how he's gonna take his vengeance on the people who made his life pathetic.When Jeremy's Red Journal accidentally got in the hands of his classmate and a long time crush Regan his life takes ultimate turn around where he begins to find happiness, and healing for his broken soul in the form of love.After getting more close to Regan Jeremy begins to have inner turmoil with himself and being a vigilante.The author described perfectly well about how all the abuses or bullying can psychologically effect a person that can turn them into something else that makes them do violent actions.
The author's writing skills are easy to understand and i didn't find any flaws in the book it was really a perfect read.If you are looking for a cute love story with all the high school drama then this isn't the book for you.It was also described how certain situations can make people do such evil things which scar others in their life forever.This book got both bad and good ending that made it more intriguing and tragic but perfect.It got a big twist in the end that i didn't predicted it which is a big surprise for me.I think this book must be read by everyone so i recommend everyone to read this you won't regret it....more
I really really wanted to enjoy it much more with all the good reviews going on but it didn't satisfied m***Same Review Posted On*** Dreamy Addictions
I really really wanted to enjoy it much more with all the good reviews going on but it didn't satisfied me like i had expected. The blurb was just a past that happened to Romy and the story was only a aftermath.The blurb was a total deceit and guess what we get to meet Kellan only once.It was really a emotional read with all the raw emotions and feelings and hurt which are perfectly depicted.
The story was kinda disturbing and the female protagonist has a weird obsession with red lipstick and nail polish before getting ready to go out.There were so many girlish stuff and some few things which made them seem unnecessary for the plot to me.There was a part in which there was a brief description on how Romy applied a nail polish which seemed pretty funny to me.The story starts with Penny,Romy and Kellen in the club and after the rape incident the story jumps to the present day.Even though with the injustice happened to Romy nobody believed her and instead she got bullied by the whole school in which she silently tolerated them with no complaints. with all the things happening to her i thought when she would reach the breaking point and let all her anger and rage lash out of her but unfortunately there wasn't any thing like that i mean c'mon the book was titled "All The Rage".
While reading this i thought how cruel that a high school can be and that police officer i just totally hated him who always sees Romy as some kind of trouble maker and treats her like she was some kind of waste.Romy always kept her feelings to herself and didn't even open up her feelings to her mom.There was little bit of romance where we get to meet Leon who is a love interest of Romy and also my favorite character in the story, Romy hid her past from Leon so he could treat her like any other normal person but not with sympathy.Romy gets tangled up in a incident where a girl named penny goes missing who is also a ex friend of Romy. I thought Romy would help finding the missing girl but she doesn't do anything like that and acts like i don't care.After knowing the reason for Penny's tragedy she gets totally devastated and finally decides to bring Kellan to justice and the book ends just like that.I wish there was some more story like how she's gonna bring Kellan to justice and prove her innocence.
The story was all about how Romy bravely endured all the torments and hatred from her class mates even though with the injustice happened to her where nobody believed her and i would like it more if she proved them how wrong they all are.Enough with my babbling i saw so many people enjoyed this book so i would recommend every one to read it maybe they may like it more....more
Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion are two of my most favorite books of Jane Austen’s novels, so if there was any book that is inspired by those two bPride and Prejudice and Persuasion are two of my most favorite books of Jane Austen’s novels, so if there was any book that is inspired by those two books I’d surely give them a try. I’ve read so many books inspired by J. A, some of them are good and some were really bad that I couldn’t even digest them. I’ve really enjoyed reading Rachel Schurig’s persuaded which is somewhat illustrated differently, but not exactly like J. A’s Persuasion there were some minor differences between both books but still it was ok.
Miss Rachel has a wonderful writing skills which made no difficulty in understanding the story and she perfectly portrayed Anne’s inner turmoils with herself, which can be felt within her words. The story is in Anne’s Pov and I would’ve loved it more if there was also Rick’s Pov. The book got my attention due to its title which made me curious if this was inspired by J.A and when it truly is I just got excited even before reading it.
The book starts with Young Anne and Rick who were already in love decided to tour the world together and they have already made the plans. Anne was really innocent and insecure girl who is always loyal towards her father and friends who don’t care about her except her rich friend Emma.Emma persuades Anna not to go with Rick and reminds her that her father will be really disappointed and persists her to complete the studies which was always Anne’s dream. Honestly, I didn’t find any fault in Emma but Rick acted like a total jerk he didn’t even thought about Anne’s future and didn’t give her a chance to explain. Fast forward ten years and he still was the same jerk, but still got feelings for her which he was unsuccessful in removing them.
When Anne and Rick meets once again after ten years old feelings reignite within themselves and always acts cold towards each other because of the hurt feelings. It was truly a roller coaster ride with all the raw emotions, feelings, guilt, love,etc. There were slight changes to the story when compared to the original, but the concept was the same and I think it would be enjoyed by all young adult and adult readers who love Jane Austen’s “persuasion”....more
Well it was amazingly a fun read for me with all the juicy stuff.At first i was afraid i ain’t going to like this but after Lexie moves from boring Red hill to paradise city i hoped it will get better and after arriving in the Paradise City things started to get more interesting and just like that i was Hooked.I really appreciate the author for keeping the plot focused more on the story unlike other New Adult books which contained too much sex.This book was more of a Mature YA feel to it and the author’s writing skills are pretty good and it was easy to understand.
Lexie was home-schooled her whole life in red hill and when she was told she was going to complete her high school in paradise city she gets pretty excited about it and she thinks that her wish has come true and thought she was going to enjoy a lot with her cousin.After her first encounter with her cousin amanda who has changed a lot all her anticipations has gone out of the window.With her cousin hating her and her being new to high school Lexie thought that her life in Paradise high was going to be hard until she meets Paradise High’s bad boy Luke Ballantine who makes her feel gooey inside her. Lexie gets to experience a new life which contains secret night outs with surfer boys, late night parties and making out with school’s bad boy.Honestly i didn’t like Lex that much she always thinks about Ballantine like he is her whole world but story wise it was good so it was easy to endure her.I pretty much don’t like female protogonists who goes total bonkers over a hot boy.
While reading this book i’ve always got this feeling like”what’s gonna happen next” and there were some funny situations that made me smile. Miss Duggan created such a wonderful plot that can be considered as a fun read with not too much adultish stuff but it got an interesting plot that makes you want to continue and that’s what happened with me.Readers who are into Abbi Glines works will surely love this series.All the characters are well crafted and well connected.
After completing half of the book i thought there would be no more twists in the story but there is a big twist named “Dean” who looks more badass than Ballantine. There is a hidden rivalry going on between Luke and Dean which may be revealed in the sequel and when Lexie gets caught between them things go from bad to worst situation. After the book ended with a huge cliffhanger i just felt so unfair that it has ended like that but i still don’t regret reading this and hope there would be more exciting drama in the sequel.
This was my first book of the author and after having a taste of C.J.Duggan’s work now i’d like to read more of her works.It was a fast paced fun read with so many steamy situations and some of you may not like with some cliché stuff but it can be overlooked when you are looking for a fun read but not for an intense read.I am looking forward to the sequel and hope there would be more about Dean because i liked Dean more than Luke....more

Fran is from generation four and an unaccountable who is also called as a rebel, a rebel is those who doesn’t want to live their life in a impervious government way in which their whole life and each action is monitored.The way the author build the Impervious world is really amazing and fascinating that you do wish how it would look like in visual. When Fran finds herself with a reader which is left for her by her mentor Chan, she unveils a secret that could make her free from this Impervious prison where everything is a facade.Fran looks for the exit portal with the help from her friend Pete who is also a Unaccountable rebel. I was pretty confused with the relationship between Fran and Pete because i thought they are friends but after Pete kisses Fran i thought may be it was unrequited love from Pete but later Fran also stars developing feelings for him so may be it will be revealed in the sequel. After escaping from the Impervious world Fran experiences a whole new world and she meets people who she never dreamt in her life that she would see again.Fran is a quick witted girl who has so much courage,intelligence and love for her family and friends.
This book got so much sci-fi in it that people who love sci-fi genre will surely devour this book.I’d like to give it a four star rating but it was hard for me to understand this and i wanted more story from this so i had to give it a 3 star, may be others who got no problem with it can enjoy this book more, so it was like” it’s not you it’s me” kinda thing.I think it was a really an amazing and awesome book so do read it and judge yourself. ...more

Even though I didn't read Ruby Red novel I did watched the movie, which was based on the novel and I loved watching it. Now for the current book firstly, it's got an intriguing blurb that trapped me and its got an beautiful cover which made me want to snoop inside this world. I Just devoured the book, with all the mystery,humor and love it made the whole journey exciting and i really loved how the author portrayed the relationship between both sisters. The dream world was really a fabulous creation by the author and I'd applaud her for her creativity.
This is the first book I've read by author Sarah M.Ross and i'm so not disappointed in it.It was a thrilling ride with a mix of mystery, suspense andThis is the first book I've read by author Sarah M.Ross and i'm so not disappointed in it.It was a thrilling ride with a mix of mystery, suspense and romance.The story was about a girl named Reagan willcox an high school student whose sole ambition was to become an aspiring journalist and how her life turns when she was at the wrong place at the wrong time and witnesses something that she wasn't supposed to.Reagan is quite journalistic minded and really brave and stubborn when seeking for the answers she was looking for.If i have to describe Reagan than i must say she is brave,shy,curious and sometimes stupid(when she gets herself aware of her to Marco's uncle Nicky who visits the school to meet his nephew Marco it was totally idiotic).Marco is a totally badass hotty,protective and my favorite character in the book.The chemistry between Reagan and Marco is good and very steamy.We'll not get to see much of Reagan's Best friends Charlie and Kally but they are well potrayed.There are some parts where i got bored and still i made it to the end.Finally i must say I've enjoyed reading it even though there are some small flaws you can overlook it with its mysterious and suspenseful plot....more
