Paranormalcy By Kiersten White

Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.

But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal.

I’m not sure about this book, i mean i liked it and hated it. It was just . . . weird i guess. Different and original, props for that, corny and kinda stupid (compliments of the twilight series) but… it was okay i guess. I only read it because my best friend said it was awesome but despite its ‘awesomeness’ i couldn’t really stick my nose deep inside of it enough. The cover, is kind of stupid though, it’s boring and plain and has nothing to do with the book. Although this book didn’t really rock my boat i still have the urge to buy the second one, i guess i’ll buy it. Some of these characters were kick ass and i fell in love with them. Actually no, all of them were kick butt and i loved the book but it just wasn’t as awesome as i anticipated. you know what, just buy the book and you would understand what i’m saying, mixed feelings for it.. but it’s still a kick butt book… not incredible though!! remember.. kick.butt =)

Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech

Thirteen-year-old Salamanca Tree Hiddle’s mother has disappeared. While tracing her steps on a car trip from Ohio to Idaho with her grandparents, Salamanca tells a story to pass the time about a friend named Phoebe Winterbottom whose mother vanished and who received secret messages after her disappearance. One of them read, “Don’t judge a man until you have walked two moons in his moccasins.” Despite her father’s warning that she is “fishing in the air,” Salamanca hopes to bring her home. By drawing strength from her Native American ancestry, she is able to face the truth about her mother. Walk Two Moons won the 1995 Newbery Medal.

Okay so . . . this book wasn’t awesome, but it was okay. It had loving characters yet annoying ‘want to kill’ characters. Sometimes i got board, sometimes i was excited, sometimes i was happy, sometimes i was sad then at the ending i cried. Yes the book was different, but i guess i wasn’t fond at it because it wasn’t my genre. I usually like paranormal stuff i only read this out of boredom, almost immideatly when i started reading this book, i realised that it wasn’t for me.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it, Charlie is navigating through the strange worlds of love, drugs, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”, and dealing with the loss of a good friend and his favorite aunt.

Even though this wasn’t a paranomal which i love reading, this was quite entertaining also! To be honest i had this book sitting on my shelf for months, i only picked it up out of boredom. The adventures and stories were thrilling,sad, exciting and sometimes even amusing. I haven’t researched this author yet, but i will, i really really loved this book. I admit it’s for people like say, 14 up? Due to mild sexual content and drug use and what ever. But i still love it because you can actually relate to many of what in this book. It’s really realistic yet . . . entertaining. And to be honest I’m not usually entertained by ‘non-fiction’ books. I recommend you read this if you want something entertaining and interesting, trust me, i can bet my e-reader on this! ❤

The Dead-tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan

Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She’s content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry’s mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry. And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry’s generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother’s past in order to save herself and the one she loves.

Wow, even though this book had some slow parts. I couldn’t put it down, i loved it. I love books with torturing suspense, especially if the outcome is worth it. It took a while for this book to settle in my head but when it did ic ouldn’t stop thinking about it. And i can’t stop thinking about the third book either. This main character was  a litle less annoying that the first one, and the way the secrets all played out and made the puzzle clear. *Sigh* brilliant author. I’d love to meet this famous Ryan.3 out of 5 stars. For one of my fav characters getting hurt!! i mean come on!!!! i loved that dude!

Born At Midnight by C.C Hunter

Don’t miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams,  Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…

One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever.  Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.”  Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.

Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either.  Or does she?  They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason.  As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas.  Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past.  Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.

Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…

 

I finished this book within a day. I loved it personally, it wasn’t great, but very interesting. The characters developed nicely and the humor was nice. I couldn’t help but pick up some of the texas accient in the writing by the way. Hmm what else is there to say? I’m not sure. The book was okay, no major problems, the ending was kind of boring, but the outcome was nice. I liked how some characters in the begining that seemed to be good poeple somehow turned around and we go to see a different side of them. I’m not exactly eager to read the next one, but i guess i’l order it. BTW I loveddd the book cover.<br/>But one thing i just remembered, in the description for this book was really a dead give away, luckily i didn’t read the back till after i finshed the book. LUCKY ME, lol.<br/>Sooo… 4 out of 5 stars i guess

Crescendo By Becca Fitzpatrick

Nora Grey’s life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn’t pleasant, but atleast she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He’s more elusive than ever and even worse, he’s started spending time with Nora’s arch-enemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Path hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott’s totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him – despite her lingering feeling that he’s hiding something. 

Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperatly searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything – and everyone – she trusts.

This book was amazing. the suspense was torture but the surprises were worth it. You know like how in some book, there are boring parts? Which just sort of slows down your brain? yeah? well crescendo doesn’t have that! Every single page was something to look forward too. Becca is a masterpiece at this kind of genre, I hope there is a third book, im not exactly sure if there is. But if their is, i will do anything to get my hands on it, i wont even download it on my nook! I’d have to feel it in my hands and breathe it in. That’s how overly obsessed I’ve gotten with this book. 5 out of 5 stars. Brilliant!

Incareon By Catherine Fisher

Incarceron — a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology — a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and a typical medieval torture chamber — chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe he was born here and has always been here. In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison — a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era, an imminent marriage she dreads. She knows nothing of Incarceron, except that it exists. But there comes a moment when Finn, inside Incarceron, and Claudia, outside, simultaneously find a device — a crystal key, through which they can talk to each other. And so the plan for Finn’s escape is born …

 

This book was really good. Very original, different, interesting characters. It reminded me a little of the book ‘Graceling’ but very well written. There isn’t much to say on this book, i guess you should just read it, I’ll give a 4 out of 5 stars only because i disliked a few of the characters. I like how they gave the book different point of views, one from Finn, who’s trapped in a world of it’s own, which no one knows about called Incareon. The world/prison seems to be a being by its self. Whiles there is a princess on the outside who is just dieing to discover INcareon and it’s secrets.
