Q. What book that hasn't been turned into a movie (yet) would you most like to see make it to the big screen, and who would you like cast as your favorite character?


A: I would love to see The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa made into a movie. I usually like movies where I don't recognize the actors. It just helps me get lost in the story when I don't remember what they looked like or how they acted in the past movie. All I ask for is that the actors for Ash and Puck are handsome and that they stay true to the books.

What about you? What book would you want to see in the big screen?

{Review}: ARC Crossed by Ally Condie

Crossed (Matched, #2)
Title: Crossed (Matched, #2)
Author: Ally Condie Website | Twitter
Genre: YA Fiction/Dystopian
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile (November, 2011)
Hardcover: 384 pages
ISBN: 9780525423652
Source:  Good Choice Reading Book Tour
Pre-Order: Amazon | Barnes&Noble | TheBookDepository


My Rating: 4/5


Description from GoodReads:
In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.
Cassia's quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander - who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia's heart - change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.
My Review:


In Crossed we see a world outside the Society. We accompany Cassia and Ky on their journey's to find each other. Crossed, unlike Matched where we only see Cassia's point of view, is written in dual narration both Cassia and Ky take us on their adventure.

The beginning was a little difficult for me because I had a hard time remembering where Matched left off. This is probably just a personal problem and not a problem with the way it is written. The dual narration was also a little difficult at first but after a few chapters I enjoyed the ability to see both characters at once instead of wondering what is going on with the other.

Midway through the book I was suffering. I kept gaining and losing hope with the characters. I was anxious to see if Cassia and Ky would ever find each other. I was also hoping Xander would magically appear. What can I say I like Xander. :) Ally Condie does an amazing job of creating a love triangle that seems real and where both guys have a chance. I personally am hoping she chooses Xander.

Did I like it? Yes, I did. I got many questions answered and it was amazing to see what lies outside the Society ruled world. I was amazed by the description of their surroundings. I hope we get to see more in the 3rd book. The adventure was also amazing we get to see the outside world from two perspectives. Cassia's with her inexperienced eyes trying to make sense of everything and Ky's perspective as he tries to remember his way.

There are many questions answered and many more brought up but Ms. Condie did a great job at not leaving me confused but just wanting to know more. We learn more about Ky's past and secrets about other major characters. New characters are also introduced that are sure to add interesting personalities to the third book.

If you enjoyed Matched then you will love Crossed. Just make sure you re-read Matched so you are not confused like I was at the beginning.

Top Ten Books I Feel As Though Everyone Has Read But Me





Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by the The Broke and the Bookish



Die for Me (Revenants, #1)1.  Die for me by Amy Plum - I love the cover and have been dying to read this book but my TBR pile is so big that I have not been able to get to it. 
Nightshade (Nightshade, #1)2. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer- I finally got this one, so I should be able to get to it soon... hopefully.
3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern- I have heard great things about this one lately.

Lola and the Boy Next Door4. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins- I absolutely loved Anna and the French Kiss so I am almost sure this one will be  amazing.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer5. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin- I have no  idea what this one is about but I have seen such amazing reviews that I want to read it.
One Hundred Years of Solitude6. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez- This is one of those books that I should have read a long time ago but for strange reason have not. Even though I have both an English and Spanish edition.
Divergent (Divergent, #1)7. Divergent by Veronica Roth- This was my blogs first giveaway prize and I purchased a copy for myself but have been unable to get to it. The second one is about to come out maybe I should just wait until the week before so I can enjoy both together. 
Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)8. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins- Another one of those strange occurrences. I read the first two but I have not read Mockingjay. I just don't want the series to end.
The Help9. The Help by Kathryn Stockett- I have seen this book everywhere. It may be due to the movie coming out or because it is that good. Maybe I should read it and find out.
The Girl Who Played With Fire10.   The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson- I read the first and it was a little too strong for me. It was a good book but I was a bit disturbed so I have been waiting until I am ready to read the second.
Have you read these? What books do you feel everyone has read but you?

{Review}: Exposure by Therese Fowler

Exposure: A Novel
Title: Exposure
Author: Therese Fowler
Genre: YA Fiction/Contemporary
Publisher: Ballantine Books (May, 2011)
Hardcover: 384 pages
ISBN: 9780345515537
Source: Borrowed from Library
Available on: Amazon | Barnes&Noble | TheBookDepository

My Rating: 3/5

Description from GoodReads:
In Exposure, Therese Fowler has written her most gripping novel to date—a ripped-from-the-headlines story of ardent young love and a nightmarish legal maelstrom that threatens to destroy two families.
Amelia Wilkes’s strict father does not allow her to date, but that doesn’t stop the talented, winsome high school senior from carrying on a secret romance with her classmate Anthony Winter. Desperately in love, the two envision a life together and plan to tell Amelia’s parents only after she turns eighteen and is legally an adult. Anthony’s mother, Kim, who teaches at their school, knows—and keeps—their secret. But the couple’s passion is exposed sooner than planned: Amelia’s father, Harlan, is shocked and infuriated to find naked pictures of Anthony on his daughter’s computer. Just hours later, Anthony is arrested.
Despite Amelia’s frantic protests, Harlan uses his wealth and influence with local law enforcement and the media to label Anthony a deviant who preyed on his innocent daughter. Spearheaded by a zealous prosecutor anxious to turn the case into a public crusade against “sexting,” the investigation soon takes an even more disturbing and destructive turn.
As events spiral wildly out of control and the scandalous story makes national news, Amelia and Anthony risk everything in a bold and dangerous attempt to clear their names and end the madness once and for all.

A captivating page-turner, Therese Fowler’s Exposure is also a deftly crafted, provocative, and timely novel that serves as a haunting reminder of the consequences of love in the modern age.
My Review :


Exposure is a a well written thought provoking novel. Amelia and Anthony are a normal high school serious couple. They are young, in love and anxiously awaiting their future together. The only problem is that Amelia's father is overprotective and does not want her daughter dating Anthony. Everything seems to be gong their way until one day her father discovers inappropriate pictures of Anthony. The discovery of these pictures puts into motion a series of events that threaten to destroy not only their relationship but the well being of both families.

Exposure examines love in an ever changing culture. Anthony and Amelia can be seen as modern Romeo and Juliet. It will captivate you from the beginning, not only because it is well written but because it is so believable you can see it happening in today's society. This is a great book to encourage discussion on the phenomenon of "sexting" that is so prevalent in today's youth.

{Review}: ARC Vanish by Sophie Jordan


Vanish (Firelight, #2)
Title: Vanish
Author: Sophie Jordan
Genre: YA Fiction/Fantasy
Publisher: HarperCollins (Sept 06, 2011)
Hardcover: 304 pages
ISBN: 9780061935107
Source: NetGalley*
Pre-Order on: Amazon | Barnes&Noble | TheBookDepository

My Rating: 4/5

Description from GoodReads:
To save the life of the boy she loves, Jacinda did the unthinkable: She betrayed the most closely-guarded secret of her kind. Now she must return to the protection of her pride knowing she might never see Will again—and worse, that because his mind has been shaded, Will’s memories of that fateful night and why she had to flee are gone.
Back home, Jacinda is greeted with hostility and must work to prove her loyalty for both her sake and her family’s. Among the few who will even talk to her are Cassian, the pride’s heir apparent who has always wanted her, and her sister, Tamra, who has been forever changed by a twist of fate. Jacinda knows that she should forget Will and move on—that if he managed to remember and keep his promise to find her, it would only endanger them both. Yet she clings to the hope that someday they will be together again. When the chance arrives to follow her heart, will she risk everything for love?
In bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s dramatic follow-up to Firelight, forbidden love burns brighter than ever.
My Review:


Vanish begins where Firelight left off. Jacinda returns to the pride after revealing her pride's secret. When Jacinda and her family returns they are treated as betrayers and are once again have to follow the commands of Severin. Jacinda must decide whether she wants to be accepted once again with her pride and bond with Cassian or forget about the pride and find Will.

If you loved Firelight, Vanish will not disappoint. We learn more about Cassian and his real emotions and motivations. I am seriously confused about whether I want her to be with Cassian or Will and it's strange because I usually just go for the dangerous choice but Cassian just grew on me. Hopefully, the third book will help me and Jacinda (Of course!) decide.

In Vanish we get to see more of the inner workings of the pride. Nidia's veil is lifted for the reader and we get to meet new interesting character of Jacinda's pride. We also get to learn more about other characters such as Jacinda's sister and how she is taking returning to the pride that once rejected her. Sophie Jordan does a magnificent job in developing her characters because i felt like at the end of this book I had a better idea of their intentions and motivations.

The only things that I did expect that did not happen was Jacinda taping into her fire breather and showing us her power and strength but I can see that happening in the third. The ending was a bit of a foreseeable cliffhanger. I can't wait to see what happens in the third installment.

Vanish (Firelight, #2)Firelight (Firelight, #1)*Cover Bonus* I could not do a review without saying that I absolutely love the cover of Vanish. I love when the covers of series compliment each other and this series does a great job. I love the contrast of Fire and Ice between the two. We just have to wait and see what amazing cover they come up for the next one.

Top Ten Books I Read Because Of Another Blogger




Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by the The Broke and the Bookish

One of the main reasons why I blog is to keep up with new and old amazing books that I might have missed. Here are the Top Ten books that I would not have read if it weren't because of someone's awesome review or because another blogger let me know about it. Thank You!


The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)



1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I absolutely love this book and I would have never read this book if it weren't for the many amazing reviews. The cover just didn't appeal to me. After reading the book I can't think of a better cover but at first sight it did not make me want to pick it up. If you have not read this one you should definitively pick it up. Bloggers are also doing a great job at keeping me posted on all the latest news on the upcoming movie.

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)

2. Across the Universe by Beth Revis -  Stories that take place in outer space are usually not my type of books but I really enjoyed this one. It  captures your attention from the first pages and takes you on an amazing journey. 


Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1)


3. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White - I recently got this book because I have heard great things about it. Hoping that I enjoy it as much as everyone else seems to. 

Matched (Matched, #1)


4. Matched by Ally Condie -  I would not have given dystopian novels a chance if it weren't for fellow bloggers and boy am I happy I did. they are one of my favorite now.  I am currently reading Crossed the sequel to Matched and this is definitely a series you should pick up. 

The Iron King (Iron Fey, #1)

5. Iron King by Julie Kagawa - OMG! I can't belive I almost didnt read this book. I love faeries and this is definetly one of the best of this series.

 
Wither (The Chemical Garden, #1)





6. Wither by Lauren DeStefano -
The subject matter was a little strange in this book but it was still very enjoyable. This is another novel about what could happen if humans go to far in trying to control nature. 



Anna and the French Kiss


7. Anna and the French Kiss by Sephanie Pekins - I usually read more paranormal romance and not many contemporary YA fiction but I decided to give this one a chance and I am glad I did. I loved the story and it made me want to go visit France.



The Goddess Test (Goddess Test, #1)




8. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter -  I heard about this book  from a blog and wanted to read it immediately. I love Greek mythology and the story of Persephone is definitely one of my favorites.  




Lily of the Nile (Cleopatra's Daughter, #1)


9. Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray - We have all heard of Cleopatra and her story but what about her children when she died. This book was a great find thanks to Gabrielle Carolina from The Modge Podge Bookshelf. I can't wait for the next one. 
Hex Hall (Hex Hall, #1)



10.Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins -  I think the cover is what kept me from reading this book. To me, it looks a little too much like a Disney Channel story so I was not interested until I heard great reviews. Do not be deterred from reading this book if the cover does not appeal, it is a great story about a girl trying  to understand who she is and her place in the world.

Do books influence relationships


I have not been able to keep this question out of my mind. Does the books we read affect our relationships?

Ideas such as soul mates, love at first sight, perfect compatibility are so common in young adult books, that it leaves some readers wondering if they are doing something wrong. Of course, it always depends on the readers maturity and understanding that after all it is a work of fiction. Yet, most of these books are targeted towards a young demographic. So, What do we think, do they affect young girls' expectations of relationships?

I am 24 and not immune, I admit that I am guilty of constantly crushing on book characters. My current crush is Ash from the Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa just in case you were wondering. There is just something about these mysterious, romantic, chivalrous young male protagonists that capture my heart. Who doesn't want to find their soul mate and live happily ever after with them for the rest of their lives. Yet, what I am wondering is does it give some girls the wrong idea of how relationships function? Does it make them believe that this romanticized view of relationships is what they should have? If so, is it a good thing or bad one?

Here is my opinion on the subject, feel free to join the discussion and if you disagree let me know. I always love to hear others opinions. :)

Let me begin by saying that I met my now husband at 16 (we didn't get married until we were 24) so I do not believe that it is impossible to find love at this age. Finding love so young is not as common in real life as it is in novels so hopefully young girls don't believe that they are turning 19 and have not found their prince charming so something must be wrong with them.

What I do have a problem is with the idea of instant love. Yes, I did believe that my husband was the most handsome guy ever at first sight but it was not love until we got to know each other. This idea of love at first sight is entertaining to read but I can see how a problem may arise if a young girl believes that the infatuation they feel at first means that they are now in love and will live a happily ever after. I am not saying that the writers have to change the stories, the idea of instant love works great with the plots. In my belief it is the parent's, or the person's responsibility to not get fooled and try to live a fictional love story.

The idea of perfect compatible couple or soul mates is also very common and may also give the wrong idea. To read a book where all they have to do is love each other and you will live a happy romantic story is entertaining but not realistic. Relationships take hard work and dedication. Yes, you can live happily ever after but I think that girls should be aware that it won't happen magically with the power of love. One may end a great relationship just because the other forgot to call and they know their soul mate would never forget such a thing and this is where this idea may be troublesome. We are humans that make mistakes not perfect fictional characters.

One aspect or idea that I do love about young adult books is the idea of romance. Growing up with this stories helped me realize that I do not have to settle. Romance does exist and it should be something we look forward to, with time you will find Mr. Right. We just have to be smart and find a balance in our expectations. Your perfect guy may not fight demons, have wings and shimmer you to a romantic dinner in the clouds but he might still wake you up with coffee and a brand new book.

What do you think? Has reading YA affected the way you approach relationships?

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant she trusts, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left.

{Review}: Ultraviolet by R.J Anderson

UltravioletTitle: Ultraviolet
Author: R.J Anderson
Genre: YA Fiction, Sci-fi
Publisher: Carolrhoda Books (September 1st 2011)
Hardcover: 304 pages
ISBN: 9780761374084
Source: NetGalley*
Available on: Amazon | Barnes&Noble | TheBookDepository

My Rating: 4/5

Description from GoodReads:
"Once upon a time there was a girl who was special. This is not her story. Unless you count the part where I killed her." 
Sixteen-year-old Alison wakes up in a mental institution. As she pieces her memory back together, she realizes she’s confessed to murdering Tori Beaugrand, the most perfect girl at school. But the case is a mystery. Tori's body has not been found, and Alison can't explain what happened. One minute she was fighting with Tori. The next moment Tori disintegrated—into nothing. 
But that's impossible. No one is capable of making someone vanish. Right? Alison must be losing her mind—like her mother always feared she would. 
For years Alison has tried to keep her weird sensory abilities a secret. No one ever understood—until a mysterious visiting scientist takes an interest in Alison's case. Suddenly, Alison discovers that the world is wrong about her—and that she’s capable of far more than anyone else would believe.
My Review:


Was it just me or the whole "This is not her story. Unless you count the part where I killed her" grab your attention.  I don't usually read Sci-fi but this one was amazing. I was not expecting the twist in the last part of this book. I should have from different clues that were dropped but no I was like "WHAT?!!" 


This story begins with a bam! Alison is in a mental hospital because it appears that she may have killed a girl from school. She doesn't remember much just Tori disintegrating before her, so she assumes that maybe she is losing her mind. Like any sane person would believe given the circumstances. The beginning of the story takes place in the mental institution were she meets other kids with problems and tries to get a grasp of reality. Then Sebastian Faraday comes into her life and appears to have the answers to all of her questions. He believes her and listens and his voice tastes like chocolate. What's not to like. Right? This is where the unexpected twist occurs. Won't say any more because I don't want to ruin the story.


I liked the character of Alison. I believe she took the whole I might have killed someone and ended up in a mental hospital pretty well. She has a very believable voice and her ability to taste and see colors when people speak  sounds incredible. I admit it was one of the things that made this book a joy to read.


I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal romance and Sci-fi.
