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! ❤
5 out of 5 stars.

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.

Enchanted Ivy by Sarah Beth Durst

What Lily Carter wants most in the world is to attend Princeton University just like her grandfather. When she finally visits the campus, Grandpa surprises her: She has been selected to take the top-secret Legacy Test. Passing means automatic acceptance to Princeton. Sweet!Lily’s test is to find the Ivy Key. But what is she looking for? Where does she start? As she searches, Lily is joined by Tye, a cute college boy with orange and black hair who says he’s her guard. That’s weird. But things get seriously strange when a gargoyle talks to her. He tells her that there are two Princetons—the ordinary one and a magical one—and the Key opens the gate between them. But there are more secrets that surround Lily. Worse secrets.When Lily enters the magical Princeton, she uncovers old betrayals and new dangers, and a chance at her dream becomes a fight for her life. Soon Lily is caught in a power struggle between two worlds, with her family at its center. In a place where Knights slay monsters, boys are were-tigers, and dragons might be out for blood, Lily will need all of her ingenuity and courage—and a little magic—to unite the worlds and unlock the secrets of her past and her future.

This book was… okay I guess. It had a really long and boring start but as i got into it it was kind of interesting. The idea was very original i might add, but the way she went along with things seemed to jumbled. This book didn’t compare to Sara’s other book ‘Ice’, no competition what so ever. The obssesion with going to Princeston is what kind of turned me off, but other than that once again i’d say the book was.. okay.I’d give it 3 out of 5 stars.

Before i read this book, i sort of disliked transsexuals. I thought they were groce but this book just opened up my heart to them. Julie put the readers in a transsexuals point of view and helped us understand that transsexuals weren’t just lustful people. They had feelings also. The main character; Luna, is really a girl trapped in a boys body. She spends most of her life trying to keep her identity a secret till finally she’s had enough. She starts to become public, her/his sister now, stands by his sister all the time but the pressure is starting to break down.The book itself is a masterpiece, i can’t say much or I’d spoil the book, i cried like a baby after finishing this book, i had to read it over and over again. My heat goes out to all gays/lesbian/transsexuals, any people in that manner. With life already being a struggle imagine being trapped in your own body and trying to pretend to be someone else? 5 out of 5 stars. ❤
