Review of A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird #1) by Claudia Gray

A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird #1)  by Claudia Gray17234658

Review: I didn’t really know what I was going to get from this book when I first saw it, and of course I didn’t really read the back of it. I just thought ” Oh I heard Claudia Gray had a new book, and since its here at the library I might as well pick it up”.  I regret nothing!

Anyway I have read just about all of Claudia Gray’s books and some have been really great and while others have not been so great. But when I read this book it was like finding her and reading her books all over again. I just fell in love…

This book was so beautiful and so full of color and everything. ( sorry I am unable to express the right words for this book). This book just took my breath away, and has yet to give it back to me.

The plot line does take a little bit to pick up and really take off, but once you do its hard to stop. Its the same with the characters also, you just have to read a bit more to warm up to them. But once you do, you will not regret a single thing.

Marguerite and Paul are super intense characters and just continue to grow the more they travel through the different parallel dimensions ( which are also super cool to read about). I can not talk enough about this book, plot, and characters!

Summary: Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.

Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is more sinister than she ever could have imagined.

A Thousand Pieces of You explores a reality where we witness the countless other lives we might lead in an amazingly intricate multiverse, and ask whether, amid infinite possibilities, one love can endure.

Review of Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick41417B2F+LL__SX262_BO1,204,203,200_

Review: I was freaked out and cold the entire time I was reading this book. I also gasped and jumped back from the book a couple of times too ( or just enough for my parents to give me strange looks,  more so then normal).

This book was total trip! I wish I read more books like this!  It had me on the edge of my seat trying to know what would happen next or if anyone was getting out of this book alive!

Britt was an amazing character to read about and from her point of view the whole time. I mean it guys, she kick ass big time.

When I was finally able to put this book down, it was like I ran up a mountain and back down again, in the snow.

Ugh, I cant even! This book has me at a complete loss for words. I think all I can really say now it just go pick up this book and read it! Please!

Review of The Dead List by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The Dead List by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 24719666
Review: Ok, I know I say I love everything that Jennifer L. Armentrout writes. But Dang! This book is crazy good.  I was sucked in right off the bat and I had not even read what this book was about at all. I mean it is just that good. The whole time I was reading the book I kept trying to figure out who the killer could be, but it was just not happening. Every time I thought it was someone, they would do something and I would be like ok its not you, or they would kind of just die.
I also don’t do horror or scary books even of they are Young Adult or not. I am so not one for the scary stuff. I don’t care if that makes me a scaredy-cat, I am totally good with being one. But now after reading the Dead list, I so want to read more horror/ scary young adult books. I really mean it because I loved this book so much that I stayed up till about midnight trying to finish the book on my phone under my covers . I was so scared and on edge at chapter 20 because my phone was trying to tell me that was the end of the book. And I got all no! No it is not! and was able to tell it there were at least four more chapters.
I have got to say I did not see that ending coming at all, it felt like I got scared and was all like ok the worst part is over and then  nope. There was more scary and plot changing/ twisting coming out of no where and hitting me in the face.
One last things that I have to talk about is the Hot guy! So hot, like hotty mic hotty. It was totally not lost on my all the supernatural references, starting with the name of said hot guy… Jensen. I think that is all I need to say to get you guys to check out this book online while it is still up for free.

SummaryFrom Jennifer L. Armentrout’s blog posted on April 15, 2015:

“The Dead List is a full standalone novel, coming in at roughly 93,000 words. It’s a Young Adult Romantic Suspense Yes. Lots of Romance. Sort of like Don’t Look Back, but a throwback to movies like Scream and the sort of campy fun ones. Think I Know What You Did Last Summer meets Scream. But with more romance.

That’s all I’m going to say about the book. I think a blind read is something different. A little fun.

There are no plans at this time to sell it or put it in print soon. I probably will one day, but the point of this is that it’s free for you guys.

The Dead List is a raw novel, meaning it hasn’t been through copy editing. You’ll going to see typos and some strange things. You’re actually going to see what a book of mine looks like before copy editors get their hands on it. Hopefully there are no random ‘shits’ where there is supposed to be ‘shirts’.

I will be posting a chapter or a couple of chapters at a time, as one does on Wattpad. Chapters will be added every Wednesday, Friday and then Sunday as long as I’m not traveling or, you know, acts of God clause.

Review of Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas

Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas

Review: I had so much fun reading Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless. I am a list person myself, and really enjoyed all of Chloe’s list about everything.

Ok, the plot was short and sweet and straight to the point. The characters where diverse and fun with all their own personality’s making the book even better.

Czukas really knows the ins of a teenage girls head, and from just reading Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless I will read anything else she writes. She just leaves that kind of mark on you.

Summary: Top Five Things That Are Ruining Chloe’s Day

5) Working the 6:30 a.m. shift at GoodFoods Market

4) Crashing a cart into a customer’s car right in front of her snarky coworker Sammi

3) Trying to rock the “drowned rat” look after being caught in a snowstorm

2) Making zero progress with her crush, Tyson (see #3)

1) Being accused—along with her fellow teenage employees—of stealing upwards of $10,000

Chloe would rather be anywhere than locked in work jail (aka the break room) with five of her coworkers . . . even if one of them is Tyson. But if they can band together to clear their names, what looks like a total disaster might just make Chloe’s list of Top Ten Best Moments. -Summary from GoodReads.com

Review of Get Even (Don’t Get Mad #1) by Gretchen McNeil

Get Even (Don’t Get Mad #1) by Gretchen McNeil 16005219

Review: Slow start, and a little confusing in telling who is speaking at the moment, but otherwise really, really good. I have never not figured out who the murderer was, even when the book was over. I’m still reeling from the end of this book! I just don’t know how I’m going to last till the next book in the series, YES SERIES!!!! The concept and plot of the book have great messages for high school’s. I just love that the girls were so clever  and were able to come up with their group to help the kids bullied. The clicks are very mean girls style. And remember Don’t Get Mad, Get Even!!!!!

Summary: The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars in Gretchen McNeil’s witty and suspenseful novel about four disparate girls who join forces to take revenge on high school bullies and create dangerous enemies for themselves in the process.

Bree, Olivia, Kitty, and Margot have nothing in common—at least that’s what they’d like the students and administrators of their elite private school to think. The girls have different goals, different friends, and different lives, but they share one very big secret: They’re all members of Don’t Get Mad, a secret society that anonymously takes revenge on the school’s bullies, mean girls, and tyrannical teachers.

When their latest target ends up dead with a blood-soaked “DGM” card in his hands, the girls realize that they’re not as anonymous as they thought—and that someone now wants revenge on them. Soon the clues are piling up, the police are closing in . . . and everyone has something to lose.
