The day in which stuff is in my Mailbox

This is a meme by The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea from Pop Culture Junkie!





















I'm doing this today because I shall be absent on Sunday and I got 9 books today so why not! Two of these books are Advanced Readers Copies and the rest came in a big book from Barnes & Nobles.

----------------------

Graceling: I've already read this book but I had borrowed it. The opportunity rose and GRABBED IT (metaphorically because I ordered it online). Graceling is an amazing read that I absolutely loved. Expect this as the next review!
h

The Clearing: This book sounds amazing. Amy lives in her Aunt's house and she meets Henry in the back forest. He's unlike anyone she's ever met, and why? Because he and his family are stuck in the past, 1977 to be exact. Amy's crossing over to Henry's side brings him more happiness than he's ever known--but her presence also threatens to destroy his safe existence. Awesome!

h

Tyger Tyger: OK summary: Teagan Wylltson's best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures--goblins, shape-shifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty--are hunting Teagan. But she doesn't believe it. Her life isn't in danger. In fact, it's perfect. She's on track for a college scholarship. She has a great job. No boys, no heartaches, no problems.
Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives. Finn's a bit on the unearthly beautiful side himself. He has a killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. And either he's crazy or he's been haunting Abby's dreams, because he's talking about goblins, too . . . and about being The Mac Cumhaill, born to fight all goblin-kind. Finn knows a thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby's right. The goblins are coming. This is an Advanced Readers Copy *squeel*
h

The Iron Daughter: This. Is. Amazing. This is the sequel to Iron King. It's an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) and it's amazing. I couldn't find a picture for it so I put The Iron King picture. I am sooooooooooo fan-girly scream about this one. Hehe. Look out for it August 1st. I'll do a COMPLETELY non-spoiler review ;)

h
Two-Way Street: OK, a girl goes on a road-trip with her ex who dumped her for a girl he met on My space. That just screams secrets and funny and romance :) Which makes me happy!
h

Thief Eyes: I had liked Bones of Faerie but I didn't have enough romance for my liking, but this one has plenty ;) After her mother mysteriously disappears, sixteen year old Haley convinces her father to take her to Iceland, where her mother was last seen. there, amidst the ancient fissures and crevices of that volcanic island, Haley picks up a silver coin that entangles her in a spell cast by her ancestor Hallgerd, a beautiful sorceress intent on stealing another's life to escape her own. To break the spell, Haley sets off on an epic adventure with gorgeous Ari (hehehe), a boy with a dangerous side who appoints himself her protector. They soon learn that Hallgerd's spell and Haley's mother's disappearance are connected in a chain of events that could unleash terrifying powers and consume the world. Haley must find a way to contain the growing fires of the spells--and her growing attraction towards Ari. Expect a review when I'm done!

h
Princess of the Midnight Ball: OK, I LOVED the twelve dancing princesses faery tale so reading a re-telling makes me sooooooo happy :) Review coming up!
h
The Thief: This is by Megan Whalen Turner, nuff' said. And everyone says they loved it. So *smile*
h

The Boyfriend List: Sounded cute. Fifteen-year-old Ruby Oliver has had a rough ten days, In the past ten days she:


  • lost her boyfriend (#13 on the list)
  • lost her best friend (Kim)
  • lost all her other friends (Nora, Cricket)
  • Did something suspicious with a boy (#10)
  • Did something advanced with a boy (#15)
  • had an argument with a boy (#14)
  • had a panic attack (scary)
  • lost a lacrosse game (she's the goalie)
  • failed a math test (she'll make it up)
  • hurt Meghan's feelings (even though they weren't really friends)
  • Became a social outcast (no one to sit with at lunch)
  • Had graffiti written about her in the girls' bathroom (who knows what's on the boys!)

Happy reading!

The day in which I have Wings


Spells
Aprilynne Pike
Harper Collins

Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful—too beautiful for words.

Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.

In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.


I posted about the sequel to this book, Spells, during the last Waiting on Wednesday. I got a sucky summery, but basically wings is about a girl named Laurel who finds out she's a faerie. Faeries are beautifully and differently portrayed in Wings than in any other story I've ever read. Faeries in this novel are focused more on the scientific side of things instead on the magical beings. Not that there's no magic, there's plenty but the reason why faeries are so perfect and how they are is more scientific than any other story. Which makes it unique.
AND there's a love triangle! Who doesn't love a good love triangle. There's David, total nice next-door neighbor type guy, who always helps her out. He's the "perfect" guy, a super hot science geek. Haha. He's Laurel's best friend when she moves to
And then there's Tamani :) He's super amazing (guess that team I'm on ;) ). He's a faerie like Laural while David's human. He understands her and I just love the more arrogant, playful boys. He flirts a lot with Laurel and is a pretty arrogant person, but not to the point where it's annoying. And you can tell that he cares about Laurel, A LOT.
The writing is simple, yet thrilling. I was flipping through the pages faster than Micheal Phelps swimming ;). Besides the awesomely amazing love triangle, the plot is unique in itself. It's Laurel discovering herself as a faerie, and the villains are quite unexpected! Haha. Well I totally knew from the start, but what they are....I'll stop talking now before I spoil something!
This book surprised me because there's a little story behind the buy. I was choosing between this book and Nina Malkin's Swoon. Now, what I do in situations like this is that I read the first 10 pages of each and pick the best one. Unfortunately, I picked Swoon because the first 10 pages are amazing. (I didn't like Swoon much. Not because it's a bad book, it's actually really good and the plot unique but I was mostly confused through it and kept widening my eyes at what they characters did going "Oh Geez" hehe.) I read Swoon and then I went back to the store, regretting not buying Wings since I had gotten the last copy. Then I go and there's a bunch of new WINGS on sale! I snatched it up, of course! And good thing I did, because this book is rated:
AWESOMESAUCE.
It's an amazing read! I promise :)

Happy Reading
-Harmony

p.s I think if I don't chicken out, I might ask Aprilynne Pike for a Author Interview. IF I don't chicken out *whisper* which I probably will. Hehe, but I'll try :)

The day in which I Wait on a Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme started by Breaking The Spine (http://breakingthespine.blogspot.com/)

Glimmer Glass
Jenna Black
May 25th

It’s all she’s ever wanted to be, but it couldn’t be further from her grasp…
Dana Hathaway doesn’t know it yet, but she’s in big trouble. When her alcoholic mom shows up at her voice recital drunk, again, Dana decides she’s had enough and runs away to find her mysterious father in Avalon: the only place on Earth where the regular, everyday world and the captivating, magical world of Faerie intersect. But from the moment Dana sets foot in Avalon, everything goes wrong, for it turns out she isn't just an ordinary teenage girl—she's a Faeriewalker, a rare individual who can travel between both worlds, and the only person who can bring magic into the human world and technology into Faerie.

Soon, Dana finds herself tangled up in a cutthroat game of Fae politics. Someone's trying to kill her, and everyone seems to want something from her, from her newfound friends and family to Ethan, the hot Fae guy Dana figures she’ll never have a chance with… until she does. Caught between two worlds, Dana isn’t sure where she’ll ever fit in and who can be trusted, not to mention if her world will ever be normal again…


Ok, how cool does this sound?! Super cool :) I'm buying this one the DAY it comes out. I kinda have an obsession with faerie books. Just a tiny, tiny one :) Hehehe.

Spells
Aprilynne Pike
May 4th

"I can't just storm in and proclaim my intentions. I can't ‘steal' you away. I just have to wait and hope that, someday, you'll ask," Tamani said.

"And if I don't?" Laurel said, her voice barely above a whisper.

"Then I guess I'll be waiting forever."

Although Laurel has come to accept her true identity as a faerie, she refuses to turn her back on her human life—and especially her boyfriend, David—to return to the faerie world.

But when she is summoned to Avalon, Laurel's feelings for the charismatic faerie sentry Tamani are undeniable. She is forced to make a choice—a choice that could break her heart.


Now Wings was amazing, but Spells sounds even better. TEAM TAMANI ALL THE WAY. Just saying :) I'll be first in line to get this line in a few days ;)

Shadow Hills
Anastasia Hopcus
July 13

After her sister Athena's tragic death, it's obvious that grief-stricken Persephone "Phe" Archer no longer belongs in Los Angeles. Hoping to make sense of her sister's sudden demise and the cryptic dreams following it, Phe abandons her bubbly LA life to attend an uptight East Coast preparatory school in Shadow Hills, MA -- a school which her sister mysteriously mentioned in her last diary entry before she died.

Once there, Phe quickly realizes that something is deeply amiss in her new town. Not only does Shadow Hills' history boast an unexplained epidemic that decimated hundreds of its citizens in the 1700s, but its modern townies also seem eerily psychic, with the bizarre ability to bend metal. Even Zach -- the gorgeous stranger Phe meets and immediately begins to lust after -- seems as if he is hiding something serious. Phe is determined to get to the bottom of it. The longer she stays there, the more she suspects that her sister's untimely death and her own destiny are intricately linked to those who reside in Shadow Hills.


Ok, I don't be the only one who thinks this sounds ABSOLUTELY AWESOMESAUCE (see rating). I want it, I want it, and i'm not a patient :) Come come come come ooooooooooooooooon.

The day in which I say why I love to blog :)

The awesomely amazing Story Siren (http://www.thestorysiren.com/) whose blog I read constantly, was talking about why she loves to blog. I commented on it but the question really struck a cord in me. Why do I love to blog? Some people like it for the fame, for the followers, or for the ARCS. Some people actually only start blogs just to get Advanced Readers Copies. Which makes me sad because they're are REALLY good book blogs out there and they are there because they want to write about books, and love expressing their feeling about them. And I love that. Because that's how I feel too. So here goes:

Why I love to blog:
I love blogging because it's pretty much the only way I can express myself about books without my friends yelling at me to snap back to reality when they realize I'm not talking about "real" people anymore. I blog so not only I can enjoy books and reading and recommending, but so other people can enjoy it too. Other people can read my reviews and agree (or disagree) on what I say. They can laugh when I mention a funny moment, or sniffle when I mention a sad one. They can remember a book they read a long time ago, provoke a memory they didn't remember. Reading is all about emotions and words. So is writing. I want people to be able to express their opinions on books I review and beyond, either in the comments or on their own blog.
Since I'm still new in the blog-o-sphere, I haven't made much friends yet. But that's because I'm horrible at consistency and forget to comment all the time. But I did have an amazing friend called Julie (http://bloggers-heart-books.blogspot.com/) who helped me a lot with this. She made me get off my lazy butt and stop thinking about making a book blog and actually do it! She helped me get up on my feet and here I am! She's even helped by posting about me on her blog, which makes me so happy that she's always there if I have a question or I'm curious about something blog-related. Thanks Julie, a lot.
I hope my readers connect with my review (that is, if I have readers, and these followers aren't lurkers. hehe), that they can go like "Huh, I've never heard of that book, but I'm gonna pick it up!" I know I'm not that awesome, but I want you guys to know that nothing makes me happier than knowing that someone enjoyed a book I reviewed! I write this for myself, but I also write it for the people reading this now. I write it to express my opinions on books, but also to hear your opinions as well. Whether it's 10, or 100 followers, I know someone (hopefully) is reading this and going "Hey, I loved that book too!"
And that folks, is why I love blogging.
Happy reading!

The day in which I review The Oracle of Dating



The Oracle of Dating
Allison Van Diepen
Harlequin Teen

For five bucks, the Oracle of Dating will tell you:

How to flirt
If that cute guy your crushing on likes you too
Whether your new romance will last through lunch period
And much more

What she won't tell you? Who she is.

No one at Kayla's school knows she's the famous Oracle of dating--the anonymous queen of dating advice. She doesn't even have a boyfriend. Two relationship disasters were enough to make Kayla focus on everyone Else's love life. But then her advice backfires on her best friend. And Kayla starts to seriously obsess of Jard Stewart--the very cute, very mysterious new guy in school. Suddenly the teen queen of advice needs her own oracle of dating--and she knows just where to kind one...

OK, this book made me laugh out loud. The Oracle of Dating is about Kayla's crazy life of giving people romance advice, and having as little romance for herself as possible. Although that proves difficult when she begins to sneak an extra peek at Jared next to her, and put his name behind a bunch of What-ifs. Kayla was a likable, funny character who had quirks and insecurities just like any other teenage girl. She wondered things that normal girls wonder. Does he like me, how to I talk to him, how do I feel?

All her friends are funny characters as well, from Viv to Amy to Ryan and Sharese. They were all real characters, and even though they were side ones, I wanted to get to know them. If they were real, I'd have them as friends! They supported her through her rough times and she tried hard to help them in return. Which is what friendship is really about.

Now Jared, is awesome. He's cute and caring but mysterious and brooding. He doesn't care what people think about him, and even as a guy, he's unsure of what to do in a relationship. He worries and wonders like an normal teenage boy would.

The Oracle of Dating is a funny, light-hearted book that will make you smile and giggle and grin.

The day in which I apologize for this being late!

Sorry guys, that I've pretty much disappeared for the past few days. I've been on and off in the hospital but I'm all better and back in action!
Now, I know I was doing movie week, but.........this book is amazing.
The Iron King
Julie Kagawa
Harlequin
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny --one she could have never imagined.
Something has always slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared right before her eyes when she was six, she never quite fit in at school...or at home.
When a dark stranger begins to watch her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes fiercely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she knows is about to change.
But she could have never guessed the truth--that she was the daughter of the mythical faery king and a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan must learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature can touch...and to find love with a young prince who would rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
OK, first I'm gonna let you in on a little truth: The only reason I bought the book was for the last line. The one that's bold. I was reading it and my eyes widened, I gripped it tightly and rushed over to buy it. Because that's how I roll ;)
I had seen faery books before, plenty of them (Wicked Lovely, Wings, Lament, Ballad, Wondrous Strange, etc etc) and I was excepting a similar tune, but this surprised me!
Meghan Chase is a strong character, she's confused about the new world she's been thrush ed into, but she's willing to risk her life and face "the mysterious evil". Robbie, her best friend, made me crack up and giggle for a lot of the book, and was the comedic relief in some books of the story.
The faery courts are wonderfully described and each Faery king or queen was unlike any other, especially Titania. I didn't except her to act like that AT ALL. But I guess if I was his wife and found out he had a secret daughter, i'd be pretty pissed too.
Now the story searches out a lot, which is one thing I wasn't very fond of. The first 150 or so pages are in the Nevernever until they finally reach Obernon's court, the summer court. It's not until page 168 or something pages that she finally meets the young prince that's heart is icy. The day she meets Ash.
Ash is the son of Mab, cold destructive winter queen, and is kinda the same in the beginning, but I detected a bit of flirting when they met. But maybe i'm just crazy, tell me in the comment xD. I, personally, loved Ash. He was distant but caring, and he protected her to the best of his abilities that he almost ended up dead.
The ending left me satisfied, but excitedly waiting the sequel, this is The Iron Daughter that comes out August 1st. This book is full of tense scenes, loving chapters, dark pasts, and dangerous futures. GET this book.

The day in which I celebrate Earth Day!

I"m gonna celebrate Earth Day by making this post not about Earth Day!
But hey, I have a blog! Which doesn't waste trees!
So really, I'm helping out the Earth just by writing this. :)

All this week (and half of next week) I'm going to be talking about (da da da dummmm) books that have turned into movies!

First, the one that irked me a lot:

PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTENING THIEF.

OK, I love this series. A lot. I'm Percy crazed, love Grover, and have been fan-girly about this one with my neighbor hundreds of times. I'm Percy & Annabeth all the way, so when I heard about the movie, I got a bit nervous. Can you blame me? I was a tad excited though, because I'm thinking, "How bad can it be?" Stupid Law of Murphy. -.-

The book is amazing, centered around a boy named Percy Jackson, who pretty much has a sucky life. His mom's married to a scum-bag and he has to go to a "special" school because he was dyslexia and ADHD. But then he finds out he's a demi-god, Poseidon's in fact, and all those things that had held him back in school heightened his senses in the battlefield. He goes to Camp-Half Blood, where he meets Annabeth (super beast fighting Athena demi-god girl) and Grover (super awesome satyr who makes me laugh). this book is middle-grade, but it's so hilarious. Especially the names of the chapters. Zeus's lightening bolt has been stolen and EVERYONE blames him. He has to find it before the summer solstice which is in 10 days. And he's got no idea where it is. Him, Annabeth and Grover go on a quest across the country to find it before a war between the gods ensue.

MOVIE:
video

Movie IS SO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. Important character, like Ares and Clarisse, never make an appearance. And they change the point of his quest SO MUCH. In the book, he's looking for the Lightening Bolt. IN the movie, he's looking for the three pearls that are SO insignificant in the book that I was in shock. Annabeth has brown straight hair, when she should have CURLY BLOND hair in the book. A hydra that doesn't appear until later in the series comes out of nowhere, AND Hades looks like a hippie rocker I-don't-even-know-what. But he's my favorite thing in this whole movie. Look:

video

And there you go! The movie WAS enjoyable but I wished I had watched it before I read the books so I could have enjoyed it more. I recommend watching the movie before reading the series.

Read and enjoy!

The day in which I L.O.V.E Brightly Woven



Brightly Woven

Alexandra Bracken

Egmont USA



When Wayland North brings rain to a region that has been dry for over ten years, he's promised anything he'd like as a reward. He chooses the village elders daughter, sixteen-year-old Sydelle Mirabel, who is a skilled weaver and has an unusual knack for repairing his magical cloaks. Though Sydelle has dreamt of leaving home, she's hurt that her parents would relinquish her so freely and finds herself awed and afraid of the slightly ragtag wizard who is unlike any of the men of magic in the tales she's heard. Still, she is drawn to this mysterious man who is so fiercely protective of her and so reluctant to share his own past.
The pair rush towards the capitol, intent to stop an imminent war, pursued by Reuel Dorwan (a dark wizard who has a keen interest in Sydelle) and plagued by unusually wild weather. But the sudden earthquakes and freak snowstorms may not be a coincidence. As Sydelle discovers North's dark secret and the reason for his interest in her and learns to master her own mysterious power, it becomes increasingly clear that the fate of the kingdom rests on her fingertips. She will either be a savior, weaving together the frayed bonds between Saldorra and Auster, or the disastrous force that will destroy both kingdoms together.
Two words: Totally Amazing.
I'd just like to say I did not put this book down the whole time I was reading it. I'm serious. I read it in the morning getting ready, on the bus, walking and almost hitting a tree, finding the keys to opening the door, plopping down on the bed to finish the ending. This is an amazing debut by Alexandra Bracken and i'll be sure to read anything more of hers A.S.A.P
Now this book! It's the kind of book that makes you WISH, you were special enough to live in it and have adventures and live life like the characters do (except North). The plot is especially unique, many elements came out in the middle and in the end that I had not expected at all!
Anyway :D. Next was my absolute love for the characters. Sydelle (Syd to North, Delle to Henry) was an absolutely likeable character. She was compassionate but stubborn, caring yet frusterating. She was sypathetic but knew when to lay down the law with North and at least try to control him. She's a sixteen-year-old girl who dreams of leaving her small village and exploring the world. Who doesn't wanna do that? Especially at an age where you can't.
And North. Oh god North. I warned you in the previous post, I would write a whole paragrpah about him. He is just a wildly enjoyable character. He made me laugh constantly, and also made me tear up by the pain he has to go through everyday. While his intentions were not always for the best, he's a good person who's struggling with something horrible. He's an amazingly funny and charming guy, even when he's drunk! He really is fiercely protective of her, but it's an admirable quality in him that just proves how much he cares for her.
Alexandra Bracken made up a world that I wanted to live in. That's hard. World-building is tough stuff. And to make such an amazing world, complete with mountains and cities and small villages and dirt paths (AND a map), is absolutely incredible!
The writing was exquiste, the world amazing, the characters wonderful and everything was just over-all amazing. Also, the cover is BEAUTIFUL.
It's a story of romance and fantasy, of taking risks and chances. Of a curse and a war. Of amazingness!
Buy it! And enjoy!

The day in which stuff is in my Mailbox

In my mailbox was started by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Popculture Junkie.




P.S I love you: Saw the movie, loved it soooooo much. Decided it was time I read the book! I'm currently on like page 45? And it's so amazingly heart-wrenching and beautiful and I'm gonna stop writing this before I gush.

Brightly Woven: Already finished this one and OH. MY. GOD. It's way up there in the list of amazing books. Right under Hunger Games. Expect the review of this book tomorrow in which I WILL mention North a lot.

Dead-tossed waves: I won it in a bet between my friend. Hehe, good thing too because I was going crazy to read this book.

Saving the world and other extreme sports: I had taken a break from Maximum Ride (partly because it didn't quench my Max and Fang romance thirst) but I'm taking it up again. Hopefully, this one will make the feel better about the series! Probably will post a review on The Angel Experiment, but we'll see.

Everybody, have fun reading! I will ;)

The day in which I rave about The EverAfter



The Ever After
Amy Huntley
Harper Collins

Madison Stanton doesn't know where she is or how she got there. But she does know this--she is dead. And alone, in a vast, dark space. The only company she has in this place are luminescent objects that turn out to be thing Maddy lost while she was alive. And soon she discovers that these artifacts, she can re-experience--and sometimes change--moments of her life.
Her First Kiss.
A Trip to Disney World.
Her Sister's Wedding.
A Disastrous Sleepover.

In reliving these moments, Maddy learns illuminating and sometimes frightening truth about her life--and death.


Before I go in-depth about it, i'm just gonna say: This. Book. Was. Amazing.
It's a book that makes you think about how you came to be in the world. About death and that comes before and what comes after. Maddy is a seventeen year old who's still growing up, even though she's dead. She's still learning life lessons and she still loves and feels, even in the afterlife.
And then there's Gabe. Oh god, Gabe. He was sweet and understanding and everything everyone wants in a boyfriend. He loves Maddy so much, and makes the point of showing it. Not that as a couple they don't fight, they do and you see it, but the way that they handle it after and accept it, shows it's true love.
Now this book made me cry. Yeah, i'm a sap for a good love story. It made me laugh too though, because Maddy is just such a likeable character you seem to forget that she's not alive. Because her emotions while she re-lives her life and the thoughts she has about changing it, are so real that it's like she's living.
When I finished reading it, it was 3:30 in the morning. Yeah, hadn't expected that. And when I went to sleep, I found out that I couldn't. I kept thinking about how amazing the story had flowed through me. It's not a complicated read, it's simple but deep and beautiful. Even the side characters, like her sister or her best friend, are so riveting to read and understand.
How the book is organized kind of confused me in the beginning, how it puts the age on the top and jumps from one memory to another. Sometimes the memories ended abruptly, leaving you confused and wondering what happened after. But that's the mystery about this story. It's a book about a dead girl, but it's a book about accepting one's life and growing up.
Now the ending! The ending made me bawl. It was so amazing written and so beautiful and just left me staring at the last page for a few minutes going, WOW.

The book in itself is a beautiful love story of a girl who can't move on without learning about her past. I rate:

The day in which I welcome myself into the blogger circle.



Hi! I'm new to the blogger world, and I hope I'll be welcomed with open arms :) I've been wanting to make a book review blog for a long time now, but my friend finally made me stop thinking about it and actually DO it! I've been reading since I was about 5 years old, and what I read (and will be reviewing) are Young Adult Books. I may sometimes review an Adult book but that's either because I didn't know it was an adult book (it's happened to me) or because it was just that good! I hope all of you enjoy reading my blog and hopefully find some amazing books in the process. Until next time!
-Harmony Beaufort.
