3 Mar

This book is GOOD!!

 

SUMMARY-

TWO IRRESISTIBLE BOYS. ONE UNFORGETTABLE SUMMER.

Lori can’t wait for her summer at the lake. She loves wakeboarding and hanging with her friends–including the two hotties next door. With the Vader brothers, she’s always been just one of the guys. Now that she’s turning sixteen, she wants to be seen as one of the girls, especially in the eyes of Sean, the older brother. But that’s not going to happen–not if the younger brother, Adam, can help it.

Lori plans to make Sean jealous by spending time with Adam. Adam has plans of his own for Lori. As the air heats up, so does this love triangle. Will Lori’s romantic summer melt into one hot mess?

Book Review-Time Riders by Alex Scarrow

11 Feb

I actually really like this cover. Especially because the three people meet their descriptions so well, but the cover also doesn’t give much away about them. And there’s, you know, the flying saucer. =D

Summary: Maddy should have died in a plane crash. Liam should have died at sea when the Titanic sank. Sal should have died in a tragic fire. But a mysterious man whisked them away to safety.

Maddy, Liam, and Sal quickly learn that time travel is no longer just a hope for the future; it is a dangerous reality. And they weren’t just rescued from their terrible fates. . . they were recruited for the agency of TimeRiders created to protect the world from those seeking to alter the course of history for personal gain. By reliving the highly documented events in New York City on 9/11, they can closely monitor history for any deviations—large or small. When just such a change is detected, they are alerted that a threat is at hand unleashing the evil of the Nazis to wreak havoc with Earth’s present and future. Can Maddy, Liam, and Sal fulfill their destinies as keepers of time to save the world from utter destruction?

Am I the only person who believes in books standing alone any more? Going through this book I was dead certain that it was going to maybe have a sequel. Was I correct? No. This is book one of a planned NINE BOOK series.

Dear God…

Book Review: I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak

24 Jan

I bought this book from the ‘new arrivals’ shelf thinking ‘heck, it’s markus zusak!’ and then realized that it was originally printed in 2002 and I had a reprint that just empathized Markus Zusak and that he wrote The Book Theif. Thank you, uneducated Barnes & Noble shelvers.

Protect the diamonds. Survive the clubs. Dig deep through the spades. Feel the hearts.

Book Review: Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

7 Jan

I got this book from the library on the “New Arrivals” shelf because it looked sweet and I like my action-fantasy-romance novels with a dash of politics.

Summary: Finnikin, son of the head of the King’s Guard, has been in exile for a decade, after the violent takeover of his birthplace, Lumatere, by a usurper, followed by a curse by a priestess that has effectively shut the kingdom off from the outside world. He meets a mysterious young woman, Evanjalin, who claims that Finnikin’s friend Balthazar, heir to the throne, is alive, and sets in motion a complex and stirring series of events that lead Finnikin to confront his destiny. Evanjalin uses her ability to “walk the sleep” of others, or share in their dreams, as well as her own boldness and sense of purpose, to push events to a climax so that Lumatere can be freed.
