Lissa Price is a GENIUS! Seriously! She really is!
I just devoured Starters! When I first read the book, the part where Callie went to Prime Destination and they were talking about selling bodies, I was all like, “Please do NOT tell me what I think it is.” I’m the kind of person who always tends to jump into a book without reading the synopsis or that I’ve read it but I forgot what’s the book about. But seriously, renting your body to a 100++ year old senior for them to enjoy their youth back is just gross. You have got to admit THAT.
Callie was like Katniss in some way. She’s really strong. Callie fights for survival and her sick brother. Living in abandoned buildings and they almost got NOTHING to eat as people who are under 18 years old were not allowed to work. Man, seriously. War really sucks.
Starters is just so abso-bloody-lutely an AWESOME creation! The settings, those awesome high-technology gadgets, all those twists and turns, it was A-MAZING!
I totally LOVE the ending! Price doesn’t leave you hanging just like that. Believe me when I say all the mysteries will finally unravel by the end of the book. An ending that will make your jaw drop. Starters is really addictive. Any dystopian lovers will definitely eat this book up!(less)

I actually read this like a long time ago and finally get the chance to write a review for it. Let’s just hope my memory won’t fail me.
Luminaire is different in a lot of ways from the first book, Florence. Luminaire was more action-filled while Florence was more concentrated on the romance between Florence and the two brothers. But I love love LOVE Luminaire. It was so much more actiony and fun and filled with so MANY FEELS.
I love the fact that the author put more characters in it and there was a lot of growth in characters, both for Florence and the princess. But I still can’t understand the fact that WHY Rolan has to pull away from Florence. Even so, I love the fact that the author dig deep down and brought more out of Niemela. What you saw of Niemela in the first book was just the tip of an iceberg.
I don’t think I have read any other mermaid book so I don’t have any other mermaid book to compare the Florence Waverly series to. But for now, Luminaire is my favorite mermaid book by far. It has everything in this book. It has character, growth, romance, angst, action, you name it. Wait. Was there a cliffhanger? Lol. I can’t remember. But even so, if there is a third Florence Waverly book, I’m going to get my hands on it as fast as I can so I can gobble the story down. Yep. Definitely looking forward towards the next book :D(less)

This is the second book I read by Kenechi Udogu and she never fail to amaze me with her writing. Gemma has the power to alter people’s mind set and that is called an Averter.
I was drawn to this book from the very first page. Kenechi brings something new in this YA paranormal genre with the aversion concept. Kenechi managed to portray Gemma’s voice as an Averter very well. On the outside, Gemma looks like your everyday teenage girl. She’s a little lonely, yes. But she has enough quirk and personality that makes her likeable and relatable.
The connection between Russ and Gemma is pretty intense and intriguing. There was a perfect plot twist halfway through the book and OMG! The ending! I have this knot in my stomach that can’t be cured by any medicine in the world until I read Sentient(Book 2). But Aversion isn’t really a well-rounded story(I don’t mean it in a bad way), it’s more like an introduction to a series. Which is WHY I CAN’T wait for Book 2 to publish! Oh gosh, the anxiety of waiting!
Overall, Aversion has all the stuff one needs in a book(it may not seem like it but it’s pretty squeal-worthy). Aversion was such a fun read! Seriously, if you’re not reading this, you’re seriously missing on something very good here.(less)

The first thing that attracted me to this book was the cover. Seriously! I’d read a book just because of the cover without even reading the description. And that happens a lot to me. But it works.
I don’t know why, but people seemed to complain about the long title. Not me. I LOVE it. Or maybe it’s just because I never really have a grudge on long titles*shrug*.
I LOVE Chloe! She’s the protagonist in Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe. I fell in love with her bright personality since the beginning of the book. The starting was such a downer but she didn’t let any of those let her down. She has a big heart and she wears her feelings on her sleeve. Take note: Chloe does not hate. She laughs. She makes people laugh. She could find fun in just anything. Even garbages. Plus, she has great taste in shoes. I just find it weird how someone could actually love being a burrito. That’s all.
Her best friends dumped her just because of one night that she acted un-Chloe-like. The whole school avoided her. And when her new JISP teacher did not approve of her JISP, she was sent to bring up back the school’s radio station.
A light read full of fun. Contemporary lovers will definitely devour this!(Or even paranormal lovers who’d like to take a brake from the para and go to normal for a while ;))(less)
Oh, I could gush on and on about Anna and The French Kiss. Seriously, don't tempt me. This book is just awesome!
Perkin didn't give you the usual insta-love kind of story. Although Anna couldn't take her eyes off St Clair at first but their love grew slowly. It did not feel rushed. And that's what I love about it.
St Clair is not your usual hot 6 foot tall bad/jerks kind of guy. He's so humble and he's like shorter than Anna but gosh he is so H-A-W-T!!! Seriously. St Clair has the swagger that got me falling head over heals for him.
But it's not all butterflies. Both Anna and St Clair has to face family problems. And I did want to chuck my book around the last 50 pages or so. It got frustrating before it got better.
Between this and Lola & the Boy Next Door, I chose Anna & the French Kiss. Maybe it's because of the beautiful settings. Or the love they have together. Or the problems they face together. Who knows? All I know is that I totally can't wait for Isla and The Happily Ever After. Who's with me?(less)
I mean, seriously! Bad-ass female character? Check. A hottie? Check. Family ties? Check. A dangerous creature? Check. Evil ruler? Check. And don't you even get me started on those awkward kissing scenes. Those are the best! ;)
The plots and story line are very well done. It definitely had consistency. This is a book that you can't predict. There are many times when I think the story's going to go that way but it TOTALLY went the other way.
I especially love this book because it has believeable characters. Rachel did come out as the strong, confident, and knows-how-to-take-care-of-herself kinda girl. Logan too, he's brave, confident but he's much well-organized than Rachel. There was character development throughout the book. One that makes the book much more interesting.
Defiance is a must-read. Someone who ignores this book are definitely missing out on something. An all-time favorite! Awkward kissing scenes FTW! ;)(less)

So Into You picked up from where Fall for You left off. They only changed the POV. Lizzie had her chance as narrator and now it's Ellie's turn in So Into You ;)
And OMG, did I tell you the ending left me CRAVING for book 3?! And no. I'm not giving you any spoilers here. All I can tell is that, yes, it's not a cliffhanger but... but... GAH!
Ellie's parents didn't pay for Jasta and she only had one week to pack her stuff and fly off to Guatemala and join her parents and her new adopted baby. But she wanted to stay. More than anything else now that Edward seems to like her.
I like that Cecilia Gray did a spin-off with each book in the series(even though I was DYING for more Dante!:P). You get to see each side of every character more in the book :)
Ellie is one girl who lay low. She doesn't like attention. But she's BRILLIANT. Like, in a geeky sorta way. She's a math geek(bonus point for that 'cause I'm a math geek too!:D). And she's determined. Her parents won't pay for her school, she took a test to get the Achievement Award and work in the kitchen to pay off her fees, just to stay a little longer in Jasta.
Edward is a really really REALLY nice guy. He's so ADORABLE! But the way he gave away mixed reactions towards Ellie got me kind of annoyed and... wondering. Why was he acting hot and cold? I mean, he's a REALLY nice guy. Then, Cecilia Gray dropped the bomb and I'm like, o_O
Emma definitely added some spice to the story. She's really sweet and really sassy. She even got some sense of style. But her criminal outings are the ones who definitely got me chuckling by myself.
So Into You is such an endearing read! I devoured it in one sitting and it kept me entertained all the way through the book. So Into You is such a quick, sweet, light and fun read! Readers will DEFINITELY devour this! :D(less)
