Carry On

23734628

Rainbow Rowell continues to break boundaries with Carry On, an epic fantasy following the triumphs and heartaches of Simon and Baz from her beloved bestseller Fangirl.Simon Snow just wants to relax and savor his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest, and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he’ll be safe. Simon can’t even enjoy the fact that his roommate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can’t stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down. When you’re the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savor anything.

Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story — but far, far more monsters.

 

-Summary from GoodReads.com

Release Date October 6th 2015 by St. Martin’s Griffin.

Why am I waiting for this book?

I love Fangirl so much, and I have been dying to know more about Cath’s fanfiction she was writing. I think Carry on might be one of the best books to come out this year!

ForeverWithYou mm c

FOREVER WITH YOU Synopsis:

In the irresistibly sexy series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout, two free spirits find their lives changed by a one-night stand…

Some things you just believe in, even if you’ve never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It’s out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she’s got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph’s eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.

Nick’s self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he’s knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she’s building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can’t walk away. Not when she’s the only one who’s ever made him wish for forever . . .

FOREVER WITH YOU Excerpt:

I cradled my drink as Cam sauntered back to the pool tables. My mind wasn’t made up on the whole visiting them thing yet. Maybe I would. Maybe I wouldn’t.

            “Want another rum and coke?”

            My lips curled up at the sound of Nick’s rich, deep voice. We’d been chatting on and off since I plopped my butt down on the stool, and he had seemed happy that I was there.

            Total bonus points lottery with this guy.

“I’m good, but thanks.” The last thing I wanted to be was drunk. I smiled at him, pleased when his heavily hooded gaze dipped again. “Are you guys usually this busy on the weekend?”

            I could see that small talk was something Nick excelled at, which made sense, considering his occupation. He was an equal opportunity charmer. Women flocked to him at the bar. The other bartender, the girl with the pink glasses, seemed to take it all in stride.

“Not sure if you really call this busy, but Saturdays usually bring a larger crowd.” He glanced down the bar before continuing. “So you went to school with them?” he asked, jerking his chin in the direction Cam had roamed off to.

“Yeah.” Leaning forward, I placed my elbows on the bar. “I had no idea they had connections here. Total surprise.”

“Small world,” he said, echoing my earlier thought. “But you’re not very close with them.”

It was a statement, not a question. “What makes you think that?”

“Well, if you were, I guess you’d be over there with them. Or …”

Nick was observant. “Or what?”

            One side of his lips curled up as he folded his arms across his chest. The movement drew my attention. I was such a visual creature. Not that anyone would blame me right now. The black shirt he wore stretched around well-defined biceps. “Or you’d rather spend the time with me.”

            The twisty motion in my belly cranked up a notch. “Am I that transparent?”

            “In the best possible way.” He picked up a bottle. “I’m glad you did stop by. Every time the door opened last night, I looked up and hoped it was you.”

            “Is that so?”

            “I speak the truth.” His smile was lazy. “Did you finish unpacking?”

            “Yep.”

            “Were there any more rat bastard combinations?”

            I laughed. “There were a few more.”

            “Kind of mad I missed out on them.”

            “There’s always later.” I toyed with my glass as I met and held his stare. “So, Nick, do you have a last name?”

            “Blanco,” he replied after a brief hesitation. “Do you?”

            “Keith.” I grinned as he unfolded those arms. “I have another question for you.”

            Moving in, he placed his hands on the bar. “Ask away.”

            “Do you have a girlfriend?” My breath caught a little when he leaned in suddenly. Our mouths were close enough that we were breathing the same tiny patch of oxygen. “Or a boyfriend?”

            Nick didn’t bat an eyelash. “Nope to both. How about you?”

            Bonus points explosion!

            “None,” I said, welcoming the tingle that swirled down my spine as his breath warmed my lips.

            He tilted his head to the side, lining up his mouth with mine with just a fraction of an inch between us. I started to feel a little flushed. “You have plans tonight, Stephanie Keith?” he asked, voice deeper and rougher.

            I shook my head as my pulse tripped all over itself in a happy little dance.

            Nick’s grin spread into the kind of smile I knew left a trail of women in its wake. “You do now.”

Manga Monday! # 60- Angel Diary by Kara, Lee Yun-Hee

Angel Diary by Kara, Lee Yun-Hee

549581

Review: I have loved this series for so many years now, and no matter how many times I reread it or talk about it. The story never gets old, the opposite really. I becomes even more interesting and I always find new things in it then I did before. And it still makes me laugh my butt off whenever I think of the characters and all of their antics. Kara is an amazing artist when it comes to manga, whenever I come across some of her published ( in the US) or unpublished work. I stop whatever I’m doing or reading and settle in for the long haul of reading more of her amazing books.

Anyway, Angel Diary has a some what simple plot. But only to begin with as the story continues the more the characters and true plot are revealed! The characters are also really funny!

5 out of 5 stars.

1-13 volumes.

Review of Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

21570318

Review: I want to start off by saying how great and amazing the plot and details of this book were. They were the only reason I gave this book four stars, because I felt that the characters and the romance were awful and that they were almost pointless to the story.

The main reason I’m saying this is because the main character ruined this whole book for me, I could not stand her at all. the other side characters were just ok but did not really stand out or really impact the plot line.

I came into this book excepting the greatness that was Cruel Beauty, with its wonderful plots and characters. But I saw almost none of that in Crimson Bound , the only part that kept me reading was the interesting plot and the way Rosamund Hodge is able to create such a cool fantasy world.

4 out of 5 stars.

448 pages. Hardback.

Young Adult. Fantasy. Retellings. Romance. Magic. Mature Themes.

Published by Balzer + Bray.

Summary: When Rachelle was fifteen, she was good—apprenticed to her aunt and in training to protect her village from dark magic. But she was also reckless—straying from the forest path in search of a way to free her world from the threat of eternal darkness. After an illicit meeting goes dreadfully wrong, Rachelle is forced to make a terrible choice that binds her to the very evil she had hoped to defeat.

Three years later, Rachelle has given her life to serving the realm, fighting deadly creatures in an effort to atone. When the king orders her to guard his son Armand—the man she hates most—Rachelle forces Armand to help her hunt for the legendary sword that might save their world. Together, they navigate the opulent world of the courtly elite, where beauty and power reign and no one can be trusted. And as they become unexpected allies, they discover far-reaching conspiracies, hidden magic, and a love that may be their undoing. In a palace built on unbelievable wealth and dangerous secrets, can Rachelle discover the truth and stop the fall of endless night?

Inspired by the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood, Crimson Bound is an exhilarating tale of darkness, love, and redemption.

EXCERPT

Hudson

“What if I could help you?”

I have no idea what the hell I was thinking. The words just leaped out of my mouth. Listening to Gracie talk about kicking off her granny panties and popping her cherry with some random Internet dick…I guess it drove me temporarily insane.

But there’s no taking back the idea now. Gracie sucks in her breath, blinking wide-eyed. “What do you mean?” she asks.

What do I mean? Here I am, sitting next to the world’s most beautiful girl—drowning in her eyes, her scent, the gentle puff of her breath on my mouth that begs me to close the distance. I know what I want, but I also know what will happen if I take it. My best friend will rip off my balls and feed them to me. And I’ll probably deserve every second.

But sweet Jesus, I’m pretty sure Gracie wants this, too, and that’s enough to blow my better judgment to pieces. All I care about right now is making her feel better. In as many ways as possible. And if her slightly quickened breathing, blown pupils, and flushed cheeks are anything to go by…

As an experiment, I dart out the tip of my tongue to wet my lips. Her darkened eyes drop like a magnet yanked them. Yeah, bingo. Having a little black book as thick as the dictionary has its advantages. I know damn well how to tell when a woman wants me.

Review of Finding Cinderella (Hopeless #2.5) by Colleen Hoover

Finding Cinderella (Hopeless #2.5)  by Colleen Hoover

20733636

Review: I was very happy to finally read this book after I have had it laying around for about a year and a half. I feel so bad it had to wait so long! But its a short book that can be read in just one sitting ( cause that’s what I did).

Anyway, this was a great addition to the Hopeless series because its funny and happy with just a touch of bittersweet sadness, that does not bring down the book. Daniel, who we have been hearing about for the past two books and about his somewhat Cinderella. Was finally got his own story told! He is great to read about ( his point of view is really great) and the guy has it going on. I mean him and Six are kind of perfect for each other, and they have that matching humor too.

4 out of 5 stars.

176 pages. Paperback. Autographed.

New Adult. Romance. Mature Themes. Mature Content. Contemporary. Fiction.

Published by Atria Books.

Summary: This novella is a companion novel to the Hopeless series, but can be read as a standalone.

A chance encounter in the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across him to profess their love for each other. But this love comes with conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of fairytales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Daniel soon realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same.

Unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.
