Synopsis:

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

My Thoughts:
I wasn’t really a huge fan of this book. This year has not been the best year when it comes to reading for me. A lot of the books I’ve picked up because I’ve wanted to read them for a while & then I’m disappointed. This book was a pretty typical teen contemporary romance. I found Laura Jean our main character to be a tad annoying & her older sister quite harsh. I hated the relationship between Peter & Laura Jean I felt like Peter was so inconsistent when it came to Laura Jean & her feelings. My favourite character in the whole book was the youngest sister Kitty. She brought comic relief to the story & I felt like if she wasn’t there I would of liked this book even less. I felt like the story was well executed & that this is reality for a lot of young girls in high school, but it just wasn’t my type of thing. Also I found this book had a lot more language & sexual content then I was anticipating & that was also disappointing to me.
Content Guide:
Violence: None
Drugs/Alcohol: Laura Jean’s cousin is known to get drunk & party a lot.
Inappropriate Language: 13 sh*t, 10 a**, 2 b**ch, 2 f**k, & 6 h**l

There’s talk about how at a school trip kids always ‘Hook up’. Laura Jean & Peter end up making out in a hot tub & a rumour then starts that they had sex in the hot tub(Which is not true), Josh kisses Laura Jean & she kisses him back. Peter kisses Laura Jean a couple of times. There’s a boy Laura Jean used to like & she finds out that he’s gay, also Peter mentions his favourite uncle is gay.

Book Review: Falling into Place by Amy Zhang

18163646

6094847

I listened to this via audiobook from my local library.

Synopsis:

On the day Liz Emerson tries to die, they had reviewed Newton’s laws of motion in physics class. Then, after school, she put them into practice by running her Mercedes off the road.Why? Why did Liz Emerson decide that the world would be better off without her? Why did she give up? Vividly told by an unexpected and surprising narrator, this heartbreaking and nonlinear novel pieces together the short and devastating life of Meridian High’s most popular junior girl. Mass, acceleration, momentum, force—Liz didn’t understand it in physics, and even as her Mercedes hurtles toward the tree, she doesn’t understand it now. How do we impact one another? How do our actions reverberate? What does it mean to be a friend? To love someone? To be a daughter? Or a mother? Is life truly more than cause and effect? Amy Zhang’s haunting and universal story will appeal to fans of Lauren Oliver, Gayle Forman, and Jay Asher.

My Thoughts:
Wow, this book was an emotional roller coaster. I felt that this book is very necessary in the area of mental illness. I loved the characters they were so raw & very real. I really enjoyed the tone of the book, it showed you how you may think you don’t matter to anyone, but in reality you do. The only negatives for me were there was A LOT & I mean A LOT of language in the middle to end & also a little too much innuendo/sexual content for me. This isn’t unrealistic to the high school experience, though I don’t think it needed to be in there. This book also deals with a lot of heavy issues including mental illness, suicide, abortion, drug use, bullying, eating disorders, & drinking, the author did a really good job of painting real life stories as to what it’s like. Also I got to give props to the author seeming that she wrote this while in high school. The one thing I loved about this book was how effortless the writing was.The one disappointing thing though was the ending, I wanted so much more.  I definitely would not recommend this book to just anyone. It’s got a lot of content I wish wasn’t in it, but man did it really hit me & make me think about not only my life, but the lives of a lot of people around me. It also spoke to me in how we should always be kind, because you never know what someone’s going through.
Content Guide:
Violence: ****(A character gets punched in the face. A character tries to commit suicide by driving her car off a cliff. There’s a lot of verbal abuse from boyfriends & there’s talk of bulimia [Purging, seeing streaks of blood in her vomit])
Drugs/Alcohol: ***** (Teen’s drinking at parties, talk about characters nursing hang overs, characters talking about being smashed, the taste of vomit in their mouths due to how much alcohol they’ve had. Also teens drinking & driving. There’s a scene where three characters try drugs, it later leads to one of those characters being addicted to drugs. Not remembering what had happened the night before due to so much drinking. Also not being able to stop things from happening in certain situations due to the amount of drinking.)
Inappropriate Language: *****(13 uses of the word b**ch & its derivatives  i.e. b**chiness, 9 uses of the word sh** & its derivatives, 12 uses of the word a** & its derivatives, 31 uses of the word da** & its derivatives, 2 uses of the word d**k, 8 uses of the word h*ll, 3 uses of the word f**got, 21 uses of the word f**k & its derivatives)
Sexual Content: ***** (Mention of people grinding up against each other, talk about people getting pregnant, someone get’s an abortion, there’s also talk about using condoms/birth control, there’s also a couple of scenes where it’s talked about girls being so drunk they’ve almost been taken advantage of(rape), there’s a scene where a gay student is being harassed by a boy & he’s hitting on her, there’s also a prank pulled on a student where it makes him look like some kind of pervert & he’s doing inappropriate things with his flute. Talk about people being virgins. Mention of people making out & people cheating.)

Book Review: The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

9673436

38120

Synopsis:

Half sketches create a story in pictures too, relevant history. Real last-century French pioneer filmmaker Georges Méliès collected mechanical robot-like automata, and, impoverished, worked at a toy booth in a Paris railway station. Here, orphan Hugo fixes his late father’s automata, and meets Méliès through his god-daughter Isabelle.
My Thoughts:
This book is just amazing. I don’t know what else to say. I’ve always loved children’s books but Brian Selznick adds these beautiful illustrations into his books & tells a story not just using words. It’s a beautiful story filled with mystery & second chances. I recommend anyone read this book, you won’t be disappointed.

Book Review: Finding Me by Kathryn Cushman

22504485

647654

Synopsis:

A Contemporary Drama of Family Lies
and Forgotten Loves After her father and stepmother’s accidental death, Kelli Huddleston sorts through their belongings and learns a shocking secret. Years before, her father faked his death during a boat wreck at sea–and faked Kelli’s as well. He’d run from a wife, a son, and a daughter back in Tennessee, meaning Kelli has a family she’s never known.
She’s already cashed the payout on her dad’s life insurance check and looks at it as her ticket to a new life. The lure and puzzle of digging into this hidden past is too much to resist, and she soon finds herself in Tennessee. When the trip threatens to open doors to the past better left shut, and her plans for the future are threatened, Kelli must make an agonizing choice that will change her life forever.

My Thoughts:
I received this book for free from Bethany House publishing in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This is the second book I’ve read from this author & I liked it even more than the first one. I thought the plot was great it really kept my attention, there was an underlying mystery that you were trying to unravel while you were reading it, & the lies, there were so many lies you were trying to figure out the truth to. There were some points where the plot lagged due to nothing really happening & you as a reader getting frustrated with the main character & her decisions. I also felt that there was a point in the book where it kind of was unrealistic with all the things that were happening people would have become suspicious a whole lot sooner than they did in the book.
The characters were great they were likeable, well-developed, & there was definite growth in the characters. There was one character that I did feel got really annoying & I also felt that a person wouldn’t act like that in real life, it would become way to much.
The writing was really well done it was easy to get into, but the author also used some big words to help expand your vocabulary, she also did a great job at conveying the characters thoughts & also the memories she had. There was also a lot of written letters in this novel & the author did a job with them, they felt genuine & real.
Overall a great book that I’d recommend to anyone of any age.
Content Guide:
Drugs/Alcohol: None
Inappropriate Language: None
Sexual Content: * (Two characters go out on a date they hold hands, kiss, & snuggle up together. There’s a female character you can tell wants attention from a male character & flirts)

Book Review: The Heir by Kiera Cass (The Selection #4)

22918050

CassKiera-ap1-c

Synopsis:

Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she’d put off marriage for as long as possible.

But a princess’s life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can’t escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.

Eadlyn doesn’t expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn’s heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she’s always thought.

My Thoughts:
So originally this series was only supposed to be a trilogy so it wrapped up last year & then they made an announcement that the series was continuing but following a different character. I was super pumped because I really enjoyed it. Now this follows a different character. Princess Eadlyn is quite annoying, but she isn’t near as annoying as her mother was in the other books. I enjoyed the book it kept me reading & it’s interesting how the selection is being done this time. It’s a lot different from the last book. It ends on a huge cliffhanger which I find is annoying because it feels like you’re missing half the book, but it gives you anticipation for the next book. Overall I really enjoyed this book & feel like it’s a good continuation of the series. If you’ve read the other ones definitely recommend continuing.
Content Guide:
Violence: ** (It’s mentioned that their’s unrest, a man was killed over not getting a promotion he felt he deserved, rotten vegetables are thrown at Princess Eadlyn & her suitors. Two boys get into a fight which leads to 4 boys all getting involved in a scuffle. What started the fight was a punch.)
Drugs/Alcohol: ** (Mention of drinking wine)
Inappropriate Language: None
Sexual Content: * (Some kisses)

Book Review: Submerged by Dani Pettrey (Alaskan Courage Series #1)

5275947

12882349

 

Synopsis:

Bailey Craig vowed never to set foot in Yancey again. She has a past, and a reputation–and Yancey’s a small town. She’s returned to bury a loved one killed in the plane crash and is determined not to stay even an hour more than necessary. But then dark evidence emerges and Bailey’s own expertise becomes invaluable for the case.
Cole McKenna can handle the deep-sea dives and helping the police recover evidence. He can even handle the fact that a murderer has settled in his town and doesn’t appear to be moving on. But dealing with the reality of Bailey’s reappearance is a tougher challenge. She broke his heart, but she is not the same girl who left Yancey. He let her down, but he’s not the same guy she left behind. Can they move beyond the hurts of their pasts and find a future together?
My Thoughts:
I really loved this book. Dani Pettrey did a really good job with her characters & their development. She also did a great job with the plot it was fast paced & kept you guessing until the end, also the message of the book which was you’re a new creation in Christ was also a plus for me. Some negative was some of the characters I would have liked to know more about & also that it just ended a little to nicely for a first book in a series.
Content Guide:
Violence: ***(There’s talk of murder, bodies are found, blood is found covering a boat, also someone’s ear is found in a field. There is gun shots, people do end up getting shot, people are beaten up & drugged)
Drugs/Alcohol: * (Mention of getting drunk, drinking, waking up with pounding headaches, not knowing what happened the night before due to drinking & partying)
Inappropriate Language: * (A character is called a whore)
Sexual Content: ** (It’s talked about in a character’s past how she was easy & she slept around a lot & how she broke a boy’s heart from what she was doing, there’s a nickname that’s suggestive to the way she lived, a guy jokes about two characters spending the night together which they did not. A character doesn’t want anyone to assume they were doing something they weren’t. Occasional flirting. A character is called sexy twice & a couple of mild kisses)

Book Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me Trilogy #1)

71GXQFa+RRL tahereh_mafi_final021

 

Oh, my gosh! This book was so much better than what I had expected!

Synopsis:

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color. The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war– and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now. Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior. In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting as The Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel with a paranormal twist that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its sequel.

My thoughts:

So I remember when this book was first published & before there was a ton of hype in the YA community over this book. Me & friend thought the idea was really interesting, but never ended up reading it. Since I recently joined Booktube(YouTube) there’s been a ton of hype so I decided I’m going to dive in & read it. Honestly, I was not disappointed, Tahereh’s writing is absolutely beautiful & addictive. The way she describes things is incredible. The storyline is super unique & interesting & I really loved all the characters. I can see even within the first book the character development & I love that. Another thing is you can really tell that there’s layers within this story, not everything is as it seems & I really like that. Overall I really liked this book.

Content Guide:

Violence: *** (Our main character has a lethal touch & there’s a few times where she touches people & it describes their reactions, there’s lots of shooting, people get wounded from gun shots, there’s a description of a character being hurt every time Juliette doesn’t obey, it describes bruises all over his body. Juliette shoots a character & there’s description of blood, there’s a description of someone sitting in a pile of blood, & there’s a part where a character has been tortured, you know he has broken ribs, & bruises all over his body. You later find out his kidneys were bruised, ribs broken, & his whole body deeply bruised. Mention of a drunk father beating his son)

Drugs/Alcohol: * (Mention of a Father being drunk)

Inappropriate Language: **** (7 G*d, 1 B**st*rd, 8 d**m, over 20 h*ll, 27 sh**, 4 J**us)

Sexual Content: ***(There’s a lot of heavy sexual tension, lots of kissing [end up on top of each other with hands going up each other’s shirts & hands running up & down each other’s bodies, but no actual sex], there’s a scene where a character forces Juliette against a wall & starts to kiss her & touch her arms & gets her to wrap her legs around him [this is against her will])

Book Review: Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes (Falling Kingdoms #2)

16000044

5295120

I am in love with this series!!

WARNING: CONTAINS MAGIC & HEAVY VIOLENCE

Synopsis: 

The road to power…is paved with blood and magic.

Cleo is now a prisoner in her own palace, forced to be an ambassador for Mytica as the evil King Gaius lies to her people.
Magnus stands to eventually inherit the new kingdom but is still obsessed with his feelings for his adopted sister, Lucia.
Lucia is haunted by the outcome of the breathtaking display of magic that allowed her father to capture the kingdoms.
Jonas watched at the palace gates a troop of rebels behind him, waiting for him to tell them how he plans to overtake King Gaius.

After a bloody siege, Auranos has been defeated, its young queen orphaned and dethroned. The three kingdoms—Auranos, Limeros, and Paelsia—are now unwillingly united as one country called Mytica. But the allure of ancient, dangerous magic beckons still, and with it the chance to rule not just Mytica, but the whole world over….

At the heart of the fray are four brave young people grappling for that magic and the power it promises. For Cleo, the magic would enable her to reclaim her royal seat. In Jonas’s hands, it frees his nation, and in Lucia’s, it fulfills the ancient prophecy of her destiny. And if the magic were Magnus’s, he would finally prove his worth in the eyes of his cruel and scheming father, King Gaius, who rules Mytica with a punishing hand.

When Gaius begins to build a road into the Forbidden Mountains to physically link all of Mytica, he sparks a long-smoking fire in the hearts of the people that will forever change the face of this land. For Gaius’s road is paved with blood, and its construction will have cosmic consequences.

My thoughts:

I find this series is just getting better as the books go on. There were many times while reading that I couldn’t put the book down because I needed to know what was happening. I feel like Morgan Rhodes does a good job of creating multiple layers in her books. The character’s have grown since the first book & the story has been developed even more. The action is spot on, & the suspense will keep you reading. This is only my second fantasy series, but I’m a huge fan & can’t wait to dive into the next one.

Content Guide:

Violence **** (There’s a lot of violence within these books, sword fighting, beating people up, there’s descriptive details of blood, & bodies lying everywhere, people being shot with bows & arrows, people being thrown into dungeons, & a stabbing)

Drugs/Alcohol: *(If any just mention of it at dinner & a night of drunkenness that led to loss of virginity )

Inappropriate Language: ** ( 3 b**ch, 3 b*st*rd, 8 d**n, 2 sh**, & 3 wh*re)

Sexual Content: *** (There’s talk of a character who is not a virgin & what had happened the night she lost her virginity, talk of having mistresses, one passionate kiss, there’s also a scene where a male in order to intimidate another male he kisses him.)

Magic/Spells: ***** (There’s definitely magic in this book. There’s two goddesses people worship & there’s this magic & it’s consists of being able to control the 4 elements. Both goddesses have access to only two of the elements, but there are these special things called the Kindred & whoever finds them will have ultimate power & be able to control all four of them. There are witches & sorcerers who have natural ability with these powers & it begins to awaken at a certain age. The sorcerers are more powerful than the witches. There is also this thing called blood magic where there’s some sort of blood sacrifice in order to make the magic stronger. No one utters any spells, there’s just talk about there being a holding spell on a door. There are also these creatures called Watchers, they live within this sanctuary & they can’t leave the sanctuary unless they turn into a golden hawk & they are also on the quest to find the Kindred so they can leave their sanctuary.)

Book Review: Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes (Falling Kingdoms #1)

12954620

5295120

Alright this is my most recent read I finished a couple weeks ago.

WARNING: CONTAINS MAGIC & HEAVY VIOLENCE 

Synopsis:

In the three kingdoms of Mytica, magic has long been forgotten. And while hard-won peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest now simmers below the surface.

As the rulers of each kingdom grapple for power, the lives of their subjects are brutally transformed… and four key players, royals and rebels alike, find their fates forever intertwined. Cleo, Jonas, Lucia, and Magnus are caught in a dizzying world of treacherous betrayals, shocking murders, secret alliances, and even unforeseen love.

The only outcome that’s certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed?

It’s the eve of war…. Choose your side.

Princess: Raised in pampered luxury, Cleo must now embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of magic long thought extinct.

Rebel: Jonas, enraged at injustice, lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished. To his shock, he finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.

Sorceress: Lucia, adopted at birth into the royal family, discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.

Heir: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, firstborn son Magnus begins to realise that the heart can be more lethal than the sword….

My Thoughts:

Okay, so this is only my second fantasy series & I can honestly say I’m hooked. I’m loving everything fantasy has to offer, kick butt female characters, a ton of action, & very detailed adventure. This book has all of those things, I love the characters & the way the story is written. I do have to say there is magic in this book, so if you don’t like magic this book is not for you same goes for violence. I think Morgan’s writing style is really well done & I just really like the way the story is going.

Content Guide:

Violence: **** (There’s a lot of bloody violence in this book, there’s a massive war that takes place & there’s description of people’s heads being lopped off, blood everywhere, stabbings, people being shot with bow & arrows, people being burned. There’s also a scene where the evil King slits the throat of his son to prove he is for a cause to this other Evil chief. Cleo’s sister is sick & there are multiple scenes where he nose starts to bleed. Also in the beginning of the story a sister kills another sister.)

Drugs/Alcohol:** (There’s mention of drinking wine at dinner)

Inappropriate Language:**  (3 b**ches, 10 b**tards)

Sexual Content:***  (There’s a character who is in love with his sister & at one point in the book he kisses her, but SPOILER ALERT: that’s after he finds out she’s not a blood sister. Two characters kiss a couple of times, a character flirts, one character talks about how madly in love she was with a man who died.)

Magic/Spells: ***** (There’s definitely magic in this book. There’s two goddesses people worship & there’s this magic & it’s consists of being able to control the 4 elements. Both goddesses have access to only two of the elements, but there are these special things called the Kindred & whoever finds them will have ultimate power & be able to control all four of them. There are witches & sorcerers who have natural ability with these powers & it begins to awaken at a certain age. The sorcerers are more powerful than the witches.

There are also these creatures called Watchers, they live within this sanctuary & they can’t leave the sanctuary unless they turn into a golden hawk & they are also on the quest to find the Kindred so they can leave their sanctuary. There is a scene where a powerful sorcerers breaks into a castle & destroys many people.)

Book Review: Where She Went by Gayle Forman (If I Stay #2)

where-she-went

Unknown

Hello there everyone, I know I’ve been missing on here since about August. If you don’t follow my YouTube Channel I’d really encourage you to go follow me because I’m a lot more active on there than here. Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFThvbsFARIO5gWaLW2eBdQ

I’m going to be catching up on some reviews, this book I read in August but once school started didn’t have the time to write a review.

Synopsis:

It’s been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard’s rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia’s home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future-and each other.

Told from Adam’s point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.

My Thoughts:

I liked this book a whole lot more than the first book. I thought that the flashbacks worked a lot bette with this story & I felt more connected to the characters because I already knew what they had been through together. I would say that between the two this one is better than the first. I really enjoyed it & I love Gayle Forman’s writing, I think she did a great job with this book in particular. There’s a lot of drama & feels, & you’re constantly on the edge of your seat when it comes to the feelings between both characters. Overall I think this was a really good book.

Content Guide:

Violence:**  (Adam wants to punch a female reporter in the face, but doesn’t. Adam wanted to smack Kim and her response made him want to throttle her, but he didn’t. Adam punched a wall and the window.)

Drugs/Alcohol:* (I believe there’s mention of drinking at parties)

Inappropriate Language:****  (4 hell,  7 sh**,  7 f***,  3 da**,  2 God,  3 a** , 1 prick,  2 a**hole,  1 bullsh**, 1 dick)

Sexual Content: **** (Adam and Bryn live together. Adam references “every other girl I laid on top of”. Adam – “been with so many girls since Mia”. References “girl on girl action” in kissing in the movies. “any guy would be proud to knock her up.” Mention of “girls, drugs, the hype” and drinking wine out of the bottle. Adam recalls going on an overnight camping trip with Mia the summer before her senior year of high school and his first year of college with her parents’ approval. Remembers being “snuggled into a double sleeping bag” with Mia. Remembers nuzzling her neck in sleeping bag. Indicates that Adam met a girl and spent the night with her. Description of what Adam wants to do to Mia. Kissing with Mia leading up to a possible sexual encounter but she begins to cry – happens twice. Kissing with a groupie and spent the night with her; economy box of condoms; girls waiting in every city.  Spent the night with a stalker girl. Adam craved skin–if it couldn’t be hers anyone’s would do. Adam kisses Mia’s shoulder, behind her ear and jawline while dancing. Seduction scene between Adam and Mia which leads to sex. Adam and Mia sleeping together after sex.)
