Review: The Elite







Title: The Elite
Author: Kiera Cass
Pages: 336
Release Date: April 23, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen

Rating: 4 Cows






Goodreads Description:

The hotly-anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestsellerThe Selection.

Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.

America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.

Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.

My Thoughts:

If you have been reading my blog at all you know that The Selection by Kiera Cass was one of my favorite books of 2012. So yeah, I was pretty much dying to get my hands on The Elite! Somehow, (I’m still in shock as to the how) I managed to get an ARC of The Elite and of course, I immediately dove into it!

Again, Kiera Cass was able to keep me completely captivated from beginning to end! While it didn’t quite live up to The Selection (but really how could it?), fans of The Selection will be pleased with its sequel.

The field of girls has been narrowed down drastically but that doesn’t mean that things have gotten any easier for the girls in the elite. If anything, the claws have came out even further!

After America finally realized her feelings for Prince Maxon at the end of The Selection things were complicated by the sudden reappearance of Aspen. Immediately, America is even more confused about her feelings. She knows she cares for Maxon but is she really Queen material? No one other than Maxon really seems to think so.

The one thing that really irritated me in this book and caused me not to love it like I did The Selection was the fact that I felt both Maxon and America took a step back as far as character development goes. Maxon, who I believed was really making progress in growing and learning about the problems in his country suddenly takes two steps back. A couple of bombs are dropped and even though they are later explained I was still a little disappointed in how things were handled. Worse, America completely overreacts and further complicates things. Both Maxon and America both made me want to pull my hair out!

However, the elements that made me fall in love with The Selection were still present. Cass continues to create a story that readers can’t help but love and a love story that just might rival that of Cinderella and Prince Charming…as long as Maxon and America can quit being so stubborn!

That Awkward Thursday (2) Embarrassing Covers



That Awkward Thursday is a feature hosted by Wholly Books where it's not only okay but encouraged to share your awkward moments! 


As a (almost) 25 year old, I realize that by reading YA books in public places I am going to get that look. I am going to automatically be judged by the fact that I am reading a vampire/werewolf/faery/insert other paranormal creature here. This is something that I have grown accustomed to and most of the times I don’t really care. However, every now and again I come across a cover that I am a little embarrassed to be seen with. It’s not that the cover is bad necessarily. It’s just that the cover looks very kidish. Case in point: Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

I’ll never forget a couple of years ago I was working at a newspaper. Every day during lunch, I went out back to a picnic table with some trees and sat and read. It was amazing because it was nice and cool and so relaxing. Seriously, it was the best lunches ever! Anyway, one day as I was walking back to my office and co-worker saw me and stopped me. We started talking and then she noticed the book. Our conversation went something like this…

Her: What are you reading?

Me: Um..just a book…it’s uh about Greek Mythology. *tries to hid book cover*

Her: Oh, that sounds interesting. What’s it called? *pulls my arm up so she can see the book cover*

Me: Uh, Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

Her: I’ve heard of those! My grandson loves them! He’s 10.

Me: *blushes* Yeah, they are pretty good.

So, um, yeah, being told by your co-worker that you are reading the same book as their 10 year old grandson is just a wee bit embarrassing. Don’t get me wrong it’s not that I’m ashamed that I’ve read them or anything, it’s just I don’t like how people act like I’m an idiot because I read MG and YA books. I know they are good but most of these people have never read a MG or YA book so they have no idea that they are. THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE MISSING!!

Okay, so let’s take a look at this cover…







It is very obviously children books and almost 25 years are not their intended audience.

Have you ever been embarrassed to read a book in public? If so, what book? Why?

Author Interview: Jenny Lynne


Today, I am happy to have Jenny Lynne, author of Wild Animal School on to tell us a little bit more about her and her book!

About the Book





Description:

Sixteen-year-old Jessica Rainville’s dream of working with exotic animals is about to come true. She’s signed up to spend a summer learning to train and care for tigers, lions, leopards, bears, and elephants at an exotic animal ranch. She will pet tigers, feed grizzly bears, and ride bareback on elephants. But the experience will test her in ways that she never imagined. And just one mistake can mean the difference between life and death.






The Interview



Hi Jenny,

Thanks so much for taking a minute to answer some questions for me. It’s such a pleasure to have you stop by!

Thank you for having me!


Wild Animal School is about wild, exotic animals so I’m guessing you are an animal lover?  

Yes! Animals have always been an important part of my life. I was raised alongside cats, a dog, a rabbit, a hamster, a guinea pig, and a few fish. Unlike Jessica in Wild Animal School, who spends a summer working with exotic animals when she is sixteen years old, I didn’t have my first hands-on experience with exotic animals until I was an adult.

I have a 4 year old that is obsessed with lions, tigers, jaguars, cheetahs, bears, okay my kid is pretty much just obsessed with animals in general. Seriously, I could totally see my kid going to this school when he gets older. Where did you come up with the idea for this school? Is it based on a real ranch? And most importantly, can I sign my kid up??
Bob’s Animal Sanctuary only exists in the pages of Wild Animal School. The novel incorporates a bunch of incredible experiences that I’ve had working with exotic animals at many different locations. 

Tell us something interesting about Wild Animal School that we should know before reading it that we won’t get from the description.
People who read both Wild Animal School and my second novel, Kid Docs, about a ten-year-old boy who is part of an experimental program that trains young children to be doctors, will find a connection between them. The books can be read in either order.


What can we expect from you next? Are you working on something now?
I’m planning my next novel, and I’m researching and writing stories about bucket-list-worthy things to do for my website:mydreamcametrue.com.


Is there a moment that you can pinpoint and say, “that’s why I decided I wanted to be a writer?” If so, when was that moment? What happened?
I was lying in bed in a hotel room trying desperately to fall asleep, when I came up with an idea for a movie. When I got back home, I took out every book on screenwriting that I could find from the library, read them, and then wrote a script. I wrote three more scripts after that, but because most people don’t really enjoy reading scripts, it was hard to share what I’d written with other people. Instead of writing a fifth script, I decided to write what was going to be my next script, Wild Animal School, as a novel. I’m glad that I did, because already more people than have ever read my scripts have read Wild Animal School. And if Hollywood becomes interested in Wild Animal School, the book can always be turned into a script and then a movie.


If being a writer wasn’t an option, what would your dream job be?
In addition to being a writer, I am a pediatrician. Being a pediatrician was my childhood dream.


Avid readers’ favorite books seem to change week to week based on what they’ve read recently or what kind of mood they are in (at least that’s how I am) What’s your favorite book right now?
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. The book is so imaginative.


I believe that all good writers have something they want readers to take away from their books. What do you want readers to take away from yours?
Try to make your greatest dreams come true, even if they are difficult to accomplish or take you outside your comfort zone.


Now, on to the this or that portion of the interview. If at any time you don’t have a preference you can choose neither.

This or that:
 
Coke or Pepsi: Neither. I’m a water drinker, pretty much exclusively.

Chocolate or Vanilla: Chocolate. I almost always have a piece of chocolate after every meal, including breakfast.

Early Bird or Night Owl: Early bird, but I do my best writing in the afternoon and evening.

Harry Potter or Twilight: Harry Potter, by a landslide.

Answer to Previous or The Hunger Games: Harry Potter, by a slightly smaller landslide.

Vampires or Werewolves: If I had to choose, werewolves, but I’m not really a fan of either.

Zombies or Unicorns: Unicorns. I don’t like zombies at all.

Twitter or Facebook: Facebook. It’s a great way to keep in touch with friends and family, even my grandmother is on Facebook!

MAC or PC: PC, but some of my best friends are MACs.

Ebook or print: I like both. I enjoy turning the pages of a paper book, but being able to hold a whole library in the palm of my hand is extremely cool.

Review: Unremembered





Title: Unremembered
Author: Jessica Brody
Pages: 320
Release Date: March 5, 2013
Publisher: Farrar, Straus, and Giroux

Format: ARC
Rating: 4 Cows





Goodreads Description:

When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.

Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.

Crippled by a world she doesn’t know, plagued by abilities she doesn’t understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.

Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?

From popular young adult author Jessica Brody comes a compelling and suspenseful new sci-fi series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.

My Thoughts:

UNREMEMBERED is the first book by Jessica Brody that I have read but it definitely won’t be my last! Full of action, mystery, suspense, and literally a love impossible to forget, UNREMEMBERED is a quick read that readers will have difficultly putting down.

I was completely intrigued when I read the description to UNREMEMBERED.  I loved the mystery of it. How did Seraphina survive the crash when no one else did? Why can’t she remember anything? Where is her family? There were so many elements of this story that had to be solved! As the story progresses some of the questions are answered but some answers only lead to more questions. Who is Diotech and what do they have to do with Sera? Should Sera trust Zen? Really, a lot is covered in this book!

I enjoyed the characters. Watching Sera learn about things like the Internet and money was both funny and entertaining. Sera was a difficult character to figure out. I didn’t always understand her decisions but the way she is explained later in the book. I loved Cody and how he referred to her as an amnesiac supermodel. Cody was probably one of my favorite characters. He was adorable and always had these smart remarks. (I was a little disappointed in his character at the end but all things considered I guess his actions were understandable). Zen was interesting and you could tell he really cared about Sera. I wasn’t crazy about his name and felt that he wasn’t around as much as he could have been. There’s still a lot that needs to be developed as far as Sera and Zen’s relationship goes. I hope that UNFORGOTTEN focuses a little more on their relationship. I just didn’t get fully connected to their relationship as I could have.

I felt that UNREMEMBERED had some interesting plot twists. I really liked one in particular. Honestly, I’m a little upset I didn’t see that one coming! Looking back I can see it but as they say hindsight is 20/20.

UNREMEMBERED does have a sci-fi element but as a person that isn’t crazy about sci-fi I can say that it isn’t too bad. I thought of it as more of a mystery/suspense novel. The plot and pacing of this novel was great. There wasn’t a lot of filler and at just over 300 pages it’s a very quick read. UNREMEMBERED leaves off with the future uncertain for both Sera and Zen and I can’t wait to see what happens in UNFORGETTEN!

Blog Tour: Poison


As an aspiring author, there are few things I can think of that are more exciting than the thought of seeing a book I wrote published and sitting in a bookstore for the whole world to see and hopefully read. While I have yet to make it to that point, I am forever hopeful that I one day I will. Unfortunately, Bridget Zinn was not blessed with that exciting gift. Bridget's book, Poison was released on March 12, 2013 but sadly Bridget passed away from colon cancer before seeing it on the shelf.

Since Bridget isn't here to celebrate herself (like she no doubt would have) many authors and bloggers have gotten together to celebrate in her honor. I actually saw where a bunch of authors held a signing and signed her books (which was awesome!). 

For the tour, we were asked to share a first. They didn't care what first so today, I'm going to tell you all about the first book signing I ever went to. 

I really have Twitter to thank for truly bringing me into the book world. Sure, I read books before Twitter but I didn't know there was this big, fun world of books out there! One day I was on twitter and discovered Richelle Mead's twitter account. I loved Vampire Academy so of course I began following her. It was right around the time Spirit Bound was being released that I saw a tweet listing her tour dates. I didn't think there was much of a chance she would be coming near me but I clicked the link anyway. I was completely awestruck when I saw that she was indeed coming near me. I honestly couldn't believe it. I knew that I had to make arrangements to go. There was no ifs, ands, or buts about it. I was going, end of story. 

So I went and it was awesome. I got all of my books signed by her and got my picture with her. I was a little nervous and didn't say anything of any importance. I don't remember what I said exactly but I do remember thinking of a hundred cool things I could have said to her on the way home. It was so great being able to meet this person that I admired.

This is where my obsession with signed books originated. Once I found out there was a way to get these books I began collecting and have been collecting ever since. 


About the Book


Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she's the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom's future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend. But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart…misses. Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king's army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she's not alone. She's armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can't stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her? Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she's certainly no damsel-in-distress—she's the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.

About the Author


Bridget grew up in Wisconsin. She went to the county fair where she met the love of her life, Barrett Dowell. They got married right before she went in for exploratory surgery which revealed she had colon cancer. They christened that summer the "summer of love" and the two celebrated with several more weddings. Bridget continued to read and write until the day she died. Her last tweet was "Sunshine and a brand new book. Perfect." 
Bridget wanted to make people laugh and hoped readers would enjoy spending time with the characters she created. As a librarian/writer she loved books with strong young women with aspirations. She also felt teens needed more humorous reads. She really wanted to write a book with pockets of warmth and happiness and hoped that her readers' copies would show the watermarks of many bath time reads.

Review: Requiem





Title: Requiem
Author: Lauren Oliver
Pages: 432
Release Date: March 5, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen

Rating: 4 Cows





Description:


This exciting finale to Lauren Oliver's New York Times bestselling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States.
Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight.
After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven. Pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels.
As Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain of the Wilds, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancee of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena and Hana's points of view. They live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.
With lyrical writing, Lauren Oliver seamlessly interweaves the peril that Lena faces with the inner tumult she experiences after the reappearance of her first love, Alex, the boy she thought was dead. Sophisticated and wide-ranging, Requiem brings the Delirium trilogy to a thrilling conclusion.

My Thoughts:

After I finished Requiem, I took a whole day to decide what rating I would give it. Requiem is simply one of those books that are near impossible to rate (or at least this was the case for me).  I really liked Delirium, loved Pandemonium, and then there was Requiem.

I was so excited to finally read Requiem and finally find out what happened to all of the characters I have come to know and love. There was so much at stake in this book and the ending of Pandemonium had raised those stakes even higher. I had very high hopes for this book but I had seen mixed reviews so I was nervous, hopeful, but nervous.

I would have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed about 95% of Requiem. It was fast paced. Things get moving right out of the gate. I loved that Lauren Oliver chose to alternate chapters between Hana and Lena. It was similar to the Then and Now chapters she did in Pandemonium. It kept me wanting to read more. Oliver is an expert at "chapter cliffhangers" and the fact that I had to read through a whole chapter before finding out what happened made me read that much faster.

Neither Julian or Alex get a ton of page time. Instead of the romance, Oliver chose to focus on the resistance. This made sense but still I was wanting a little more interaction with those characters. You are able to see Lena struggle through her thoughts but not as much through her interactions with the characters.

Hana turned out to be a much more interesting character than I thought she would be post-cure. I did have problems understanding how she really felt, a side effect of the cure no doubt. Still, Hana's chapters added depth to the story. We can actually see both sides of the war.

Before I started Requiem I had seen some twitter updates about how people were getting close to the end but they felt there was still so much that needed to happen. I can honestly say that I felt the EXACT same way. There was about 100 pages left when I first started to panic. Then, at 50 I was near freak out. I barely was able to keep it together while reading the last couple of pages. Seriously, I finished the book and began looking for more pages. I went to online knowing that there had to be some mistake. I mean, that couldn't really be the end, could it?

Turns out it was. Don't get me wrong, the book ends with a beautiful passage but still it felt incomplete. I didn't get the closure and resolution I was hoping for.

So after sleeping on it, I decided on 4 stars because like I said I really did enjoy about 95% of Requiem. The series as a whole is great, especially if you love fast paced books. However, I was just hoping for a little more in the ending...

That Awkward Thursday: Love the Author, Hate the Book


Welecome to the first official That Awkward Thursday! I am super excited about this new feature. If you have been reading my blog the last couple of weeks you have probably seen the post that this feature originated from. This feature will take the phrase That awkward moment...then fill it in with a bookish related topic. Topics so far have been: That awkward moment a cover you love gets redesigned & That awkward moment you like the movie more than the book. Now, on to this week's topic.

That Awkward Moment you Love the Author but Hate the Book


As book bloggers this is bound to happen to you at some point or another. You meet an author, be it in person at a conference or on social media, and you love him or her. They are so incredibly awesome. They are so awesome in fact that you know you MUST read their book(s). So off you go to the book store to buy said book. You get it home and immediately begin to read it. Then, 20 pages in you realize you would rather suffer through some medieval torture ritual than to continue reading. 

Now, this person that you LOVE and have somewhat befriended knows you are reading their book and wants to know your thoughts. Obviously, you can't tell them exactly what you are feeling but at the same time you can't lie and tell everyone how much you loved said book when that is the furthest thing from the truth. So what do you?

Luckily, this has only (kind of) happened to me once. I was extra lucky that I met this person that was super nice at a book convention and she had no idea who I was. She was nice and talked to me for about 10 minutes but I didn't tell her I was a blogger or anything (I was just getting serious about getting it started) so it was rather simple for me. 

I read the book and didn't like it at all. It wasn't that the book wasn't well written because it was. The book just wasn't for me. I published the review and gave it 2 cows. I was honest about what I didn't like (It was a slow developing story.) and said that it was well written but just wasn't for me. Simple, right? 

The thing is I am terrified that I will befriend an author on twitter (now that I am socializing a little more, but I still need some work in the social media department) and we have a conversation something like this:

Me: "OMG, your book sounds great! I can't wait to read it!"

Wonderful new author friend: "Yay! Glad you think so! Be sure to let me know what you think when you finish!"

Me: "Of course, I'm sure I'll love it!"

A few days later...

Me: *Closes book.* "That is the worst book I have ever attempted to read.*

The next day...

Me: "Oh no! Wonderful author friend is on twitter, right now!" *Quickly, exits twitter and prays wonderful new author friend doesn't tweet me.*

This whole conversation is obviously an extremely exaggerated example but I think you get my point. The more you talk to authors, the more likely you are to encounter something similar. A friend of mine that isn't an actual book blogger told me a similar story where she began talking to the author on Goodreads and the author told her to let her know what she thought of her book. I'm sure you guessed she didn't love it. She told me that it was incredibly awkward and she ended up posting her review on Goodreads and stated what she didn't like about the book and didn't contact the author directly about her thoughts. 

Honestly, there isn't a good way to handle this situation. You can't say you loved it, when you didn't. At the same time, you don't want to hurt your new friend's feelings. I think that my way of handling it would depend on how close I was to the author. If I only talked to them a few times on twitter, I would probably just post the review. However, if this was someone I was really, truly friends with and talked to them on a regular basis I probably just wouldn't post a review at all. I would try to kindly tell them that I didn't love their book and would rather do an author interview, guest post, or promo. I am hoping that if I befriended said author then they would have a good character and be understanding. 

Of course what I am really hoping is that this never, ever happens to me. That would be just a little too AWK-WARD! 

Has this ever happened to you?

Waiting on Wednesday (27)


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.






Title
: The Unbound
Author: Victoria Schwab
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Expected Release Date: January 28, 2014






Goodreads Description: 

Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books. Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive.

Last summer, Mackenzie Bishop, a Keeper tasked with stopping violent Histories from escaping the Archive, almost lost her life to one. Now, as she starts her junior year at Hyde School, she's struggling to get her life back. But moving on isn't easy -- not when her dreams are haunted by what happened. She knows the past is past, knows it cannot hurt her, but it feels so real, and when her nightmares begin to creep into her waking hours, she starts to wonder if she's really safe.

Meanwhile, people are vanishing without a trace, and the only thing they seem to have in common is Mackenzie. She's sure the Archive knows more than they are letting on, but before she can prove it, she becomes the prime suspect. And unless Mac can track down the real culprit, she'll lose everything, not only her role as Keeper, but her memories, and even her life. Can Mackenzie untangle the mystery before she herself unravels?

With stunning prose and a captivating mixture of action, romance, and horror, The Unbound delves into a richly imagined world where no choice is easy and love and loss feel like two sides of the same coin.

Why I'm Waiting: 

Okay, so this one is further out than I normally do a WoW post on but I adored The Archived and am super excited for it's sequel. I really thought it was coming out earlier. I know a year is pretty much standard but I thought I had heard it was coming out later this year. According to Goodreads, that is incorrect. Anyways if you haven't read The Archived you really need to! You won't regret it!
