Review of The Perfect Game by J. Sterling

The Perfect Game (The Perfect Game #1)  by J. Sterling15783307

Review: Ok, it’s been awhile since I have read New Adult, but this book was a good start back in to it. The book overall was pretty good I only had a couple of problems with the main characters. Fist I did not like how Cassie acted in the beginning of the book and she seemed to flip flop with how she acted a lot in the book. But the point is she figured it out and got better. The next big problem for me was Jack towards the end of the book he does and keeps doing stupid stuff that makes you want to stab him in the face, repeatedly. The end was also just so, so. I felt like it could have been more, ya know? Although, I am looking forward to reading the second book in the future.

Movie Review on- If I stay

If I stay based off the book if I stay by Gayle Forman

new-if-i-stay-movie-poster

Review: WOW, I saw the movie this morning and I’m still crying over it. The movie was a very good representation of the book, even if  some things were added to the movie or changed. It has been a long time ( since Divergent) that a movie has been this close to what the book actually says. Trust when you see this movie, because don’t fool yourself, you will see this movie. SOON.  All of the actors chosen for the characters played almost too good, because five minutes into the movie you will forget that they are actors doing their job and not the actual people this is happening too. And can I just say the part in the movie when Mia’s grandfather is in the room with her is one of the hardest to read let alone watch! So was the part when Adam sang the song he wrote for her too. I am just a big ball of feels right now. The music in the movie is amazing, it goes in many different directions, it comes back to a nice slow melody that makes you cry even harder. So I guess this means I must have the soundtrack now. Although it has only been a matter of hours since I have seen this movie, and I am still so utterly moved by it, just as the book moved me, I can say that this is one of the most moving movies you might ever see.

4 1/2 stars.

Review of Rusty Nailed (Cocktail #2)

Rusty Nailed (Cocktail #2) by Alice Clayton18775203

Review: One of the best follow up books I have read so far that is still able to live up to the first book. The book made me fall in love with Simon and Caroline all over again. Even though there was no sweater sniffing this time, there was still a lot of humor that makes you laugh till you cry your eyes out. There is also more of a conflict for the plot to continue and not be all happy, which is a good thing because  it’s nice to Simon and Caroline fight. Also when Caroline fights as you know, she comes up with random things that make complete sense and that oh so funny. Clive also gets more of an adventure this time around, and ends up a little like Simon was at first. God, I love that cat! We also get to faces from the past book and how everyone is doing since then, and we get to read about how a slip nip is done the right way. There are lots more fights in the group which are mostly funny and then we get to see Caroline in  action at work. Though I’m not totally looking forward to the next book because it will not be Simon and Caroline’s story, I have hope that it will be great too!

Summary: Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on her honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy long hours to keep the interior design company running—especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel on Sausalito. So with her hotshot photographer boyfriend gallivanting all over the world for his job, she and Simon are heavy-duty into “absence makes the heart grow fonder” mode. Neither has any complaints about the great reunion sex, though! Then Simon decides he’s tired of so much travelling, and he’s suddenly home more. A lot more. And wanting Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort their relationship out. Neither wants “out of sight, out of mind,” but can they create their own happy mid-ground cliché?

Review of Mila 2.0 (MILA 2.0 #1) by Debra Driza

Mila 2.0 (MILA 2.0 #1) by Debra Driza

Review: The book has a good start and ending but the middle is kind of boring. The best thing in the book is the strong female character and her hopefully soon-to-be-boyfriend.  The fight scenes were another part of the whole reason to keep reading the book. The cover art is another bonus because I mean look at that. Hopefully the second book has more of a plot and the characters get deeper in their depth.

Summary: Mila 2.0 is the first book in an electrifying sci-fi thriller series about a teenage girl who discovers that she is an experiment in artificial intelligence.

Mila was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was a girl living with her mother in a small Minnesota town. She was supposed to forget her past—that she was built in a secret computer science lab and programmed to do things real people would never do.

Now she has no choice but to run—from the dangerous operatives who want her terminated because she knows too much and from a mysterious group that wants to capture her alive and unlock her advanced technology. However, what Mila’s becoming is beyond anyone’s imagination, including her own, and it just might save her life.

Review of Clockwork princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare clockworkprincess

Review: I finally finished this book. and I have to tell you guys, it was so amazing. It had some really great moments in it like Magnus Bane discovering GLITTER!! what could be better then that. There was also heartbreaking moments, when you feel like you have to stop reading the and take a break. which I know I had to do a lot, when reading. Then there is the ending, which makes you happy, angry, and sad all at the same time. Then you are left with that big gapping whole in your chest when your done reading the book and all you can do is cry and be like yeah, that happened.

Review of Hooked (Hooked #1) by Liz Fichera

Hooked (Hooked #1) by Liz Fichera hooked

Review: This was a GREAT book to read! No demons, vampires, wolfs, or ghost! YA! Its was just a normal everyday, type of romance. That I think a lot of teens can relate too. There’s as the whole golf part too… I have never read a book about golf before, so it was really cool reading about and how important it was at their school, and in their lives.  It also touches on another important issue, such as Native American, and how they are treated/seen at the school and in that town. In which is the same at a lot of high schools and needs to change.

Review of Born Wicked (The Cahill Witch Chronicles #1)

Review: This is one of the best witch books I have ever read, and that’s saying something. I mean it, I swear. I has you go through Cate’s life with her, the kisses, the feelings of hopelessness, terror, feeling heartbroken, anger, and of utter happiness, and love!!!! By the end of the book, your all smiles, and happiness. BUT then at the end you are so angry you just have to yell and flip a couple of tables to get it out of your system and just wait a couple more weeks till the second one comes out to fix where it left you last time.

Summary: Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave.

Before her mother died, Cate promised to protect her sisters. But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word… especially after she finds her mother’s diary, uncovering a secret that could spell her family’s destruction. Desperate to find alternatives to their fate, Cate starts scouring banned books and questioning rebellious new friends, all while juggling tea parties, shocking marriage proposals, and a forbidden romance with the completely unsuitable Finn Belastra.

If what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren’t safe. Not from the Brotherhood, the Sisterhood—not even from each other.

Review: I really loved the idea for this book and it seems that as every chapter went by the plot and characters got better. Though in the beginning everything seemed very childish. But as I said it all gets better and that’s when you start falling for the characters and are dying by the end of the book because I mean they can’t just leave it like that! I mean right!!!!!!

 Review: Ok the author has a great idea for this book, but its not well explained in this first book. I know I got lost many times and had to re-read, many chapters again. Then the ending just leaves you scratching your head in confusion. But at least there was one really cool part when someone gets beaten to death with a chair. I really wish I had more to day about this book but sadly no….

Review: Wow, I really didn’t think that this series could get more harsh and intense. But as I say a lot lately, I guess I’m wrong. My favorite parts in these books are when the women stick up for themselves and protect what’s theirs. I( also liked how Wyld was able to hint at what the next book might look like, and trust me when I say I’m searching for it. ( the book I mean). I also feel like I might be able to understand and connect better with the next book because it will hopefully be a younger couple and not people who could be my parents.

Summary: Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart-and her virginity-to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn’t have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach’s step-brother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he’s never forgotten.

She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious-her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach’s a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger to be Noah’s only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands-with the help of the Reapers Motorcycle Club-to give them a better life.

Living with outlaw bikers wasn’t Sophie’s plan for her son, but Ruger isn’t giving her a choice. He’ll be there for Noah, whether she wants him or not. But Sophie does want him, has always wanted him. Now she’ll learn that taking a biker to bed can get a girl dirty in every way.
