Talk about the best thirteen pages of your life.
Divergent was already amazing, but this?
In these simple pages, we see Four's point of view during the super important scene between Tris, Al, and Eric--the knife throwing scene. We get about five new things (exaggerating, though it would be cool if I was correct) we didn't even know about Tobias in this short amount of time!
It's a great fresh breath of air.
And let's all admit it guys.
The last sentence is what we all dream that a guy would say to us.
Admittedly, I didn't think that this would be the scene that would be in a different POV. I thought it would be when he was hijacked, but I'm sure that would be too obvious.
So, yeah. Thanks for pre-ordering it guys! I would've, but, no credit card.
Great scene and I can't wait to get my hands on Insurgent!
To top it all off, she's a vampire and has to hide the secret from he...moreA.J.'s life quite frankly...sucks.
Her boyfriend's now her step-brother now.
To top it all off, she's a vampire and has to hide the secret from her new family.
So when she goes off into the forest with a this guy named Noah, you'd think everything would be okay.
Now dealing with a former classmate stalking her, cheating allegations, and trying to get over feelings for her stepbrother, A.J. has to learn some secrets about her own past that should've probably stayed secrets.
Well, this book is a nice, quick, cute, vampire read. There's a sequel, Love Sucks!, and I'll definitely check it out. Personally, I found that the vampire history was a bit confusing, but I'm sure that it'll be sorted out in the next book.
By the time you read the ending, you'll be attached. The beginning of the book is kinda just teenage problems with a side of vampire. The end is where it gets really good and sets up the mood for the next book.
As for the cover, you might think that it's a bit plain, but take a closer look. Something on there will be quite significant when you read further. (less)
The Hunger Pains was the first parody I've ever read.
Surprisingly, I enjoyed this. After reading the reviews on, er, another book , I had low expectations for this one.
But I was pleasantly surprised.
I actually chucked at the names and probably all of the situations. Every character was OVER exaggerated, and I loved it. Peeta (Pita) was overweight and had an obsession with bread, Effie (Effu) had a Jamaican accent, Rue (Run) was...certainly has a lot to live up to. And Katniss (Kantkiss), oh geez. She super shallow and cannot take hints.
The Harvard Lampoon somehow managed to fit a 374 page book into 157 and I applaud them for it.
This book is a hit or miss. Either you really enjoy it or you downright hate it. Your choice. If anything, this book is a great time waster and you might be able to get a few chuckles out of it, depending on your type of humor.(less)

Oh man...the beginning. GEEZ. It was a bit...
Most sequels are like this. They're trying to recap what happened in the last book and also begin the new plots for the current book.
But the second half.
One after another. Plot twist, reveal, plot twist, reveal, and so on. There are so many parts in this book that make you literally stop reading and close the book for a few seconds, before promptly picking it back up.
And the cliffhanger this book left on...
It definitely leaves you craving for Diva, the final book in the series.(less)

Her father died when she was young and all he has is her mother and a house maid. She's friends with Vee, her larger than life best friend. Then there's Patch. He's a mysterious boy that sits in the back of her class. He doesn't say much of anything. Nora doesn't find herself involved with him until she's forced to become his lab partner. Almost at once, he overwhelms her with only things she should know. Nora petitions to get her seat changed, but the more she comes to know Patch, the more she isn't sure she really wants to change after all. If her life wasn't stressful enough, there's some crazy person that wants her dead. So Nora, trying to fight her feelings for Patch and a crazed assassin has to see if she can make it out alive.
I found myself liking Nora.
A little bit.
I found Vee much more interesting. More...bold, so to speak. Nora was just...there. I almost find her a little Mary Sue-ish. But Patch?
I. LOVED. PATCH.
He wasn't "oh I like her a lot but she doesn't like me" or "she seems nice, maybe I should talk to her". He was "I like you. You like me. Let's make this work." Patch was very straightforward in his approach with Nora. I loved it!
Nora has some room for improvement, but the plot and such was fantastic. Can't wait to get my hands on the next sequel!(less)

Can they make it out alive? And what's this about a creepy doll that seems to follow Greg around every where he goes?
You can never go wrong with this series. The books are perfect for kids--or kids at heart. There are parts that'll make you chuckle, or even laugh, if you're easily amused. This book cover is also one of my favorites. It just seems to tell you what you're in store for. I'm curious to see what he comes up with next. A nice little read that'll easily take you a day, two if you're preoccupied with something. You'll realize that the book is over before you know it!(less)
