The Golden Lily: Book Review

The Golden Lily

Richelle Mead

June 12th 2012
Young Adult | Paranormal
Official Blurb - 
Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

Sydney would love to go to college, but instead, she’s been sent into hiding at a posh boarding school in Palm Springs, California–tasked with protecting Moroi princess Jill Dragomir from assassins who want to throw the Moroi court into civil war. Formerly in disgrace, Sydney is now praised for her loyalty and obedience, and held up as the model of an exemplary Alchemist.

But the closer she grows to Jill, Eddie, and especially Adrian, the more she finds herself questioning her age–old Alchemist beliefs, her idea of family, and the sense of what it means to truly belong. Her world becomes even more complicated when magical experiments show Sydney may hold the key to prevent becoming Strigoi—the fiercest vampires, the ones who don’t die. But it’s her fear of being just that—special, magical, powerful—that scares her more than anything. Equally daunting is her new romance with Brayden, a cute, brainy guy who seems to be her match in every way. Yet, as perfect as he seems, Sydney finds herself being drawn to someone else—someone forbidden to her.

When a shocking secret threatens to tear the vampire world apart, Sydney’s loyalties are suddenly tested more than ever before. She wonders how she's supposed to strike a balance between the principles and dogmas she's been taught, and what her instincts are now telling her.

Should she trust the Alchemists—or her heart?

Gone is the playboy Adrian, witty still remains but he is a shell of his old self. Yet at the same time we get to see something as profound as it is opposite to our very first impression of him. Soft shy deep and transformational are his new feelings.

Sydney is a delight once again. So oblivious it is sweet. Fiercely loyal. I am excited to see what she will do next.

I do miss the more confident and semi pushy Adrian. Hopefully he might return in the next book and set the pages ablaze.

Jill's dreamy moments were slightly disturbing. Both coming from Jill and the idea that Adrian could have thoughts along the lines of "the burgundy trim in your skirt really brings out the amber in your eyes." I can't imagine guys noticing.

I loved this book and am so excited for more! The characters are awesome and the story intense.

Breaking Point: Book Review

Breaking Point

Kristen Simmons

Tor Teen
February 12th 2013
Young Adult | Science Fiction
Official Blurb - 
The second installment in Kristen Simmons's fast-paced, gripping YA dystopian series.

After faking their deaths to escape from prison, Ember Miller and Chase Jennings have only one goal: to lay low until the Federal Bureau of Reformation forgets they ever existed.

Near-celebrities now for the increasingly sensationalized tales of their struggles with the government, Ember and Chase are recognized and taken in by the Resistance—an underground organization working to systematically take down the government. At headquarters, all eyes are on the sniper, an anonymous assassin taking out FBR soldiers one by one. Rumors are flying about the sniper’s true identity, and Ember and Chase welcome the diversion….

Until the government posts its most-wanted list, and their number one suspect is Ember herself.

Orders are shoot to kill, and soldiers are cleared to fire on suspicion alone. Suddenly Ember can’t even step onto the street without fear of being recognized, and “laying low” is a joke. Even members of the Resistance are starting to look at her sideways.

With Chase urging her to run, Ember must decide: Go into hiding…or fight back?

Not sure if I have mentioned this before but I just love Chase. How can he be such a great big bear of a man yet such a sweet loving being?

This installment wasn't quite what I was hoping for but it was still very nice. There was plenty going on to keep the pages flying by. While some of the things that happened were obvious there are a few that still remain a mystery. Who is the rat? I still don't trust Tucker but he would have to be crazy to volunteer to be in the middle of the take down. Just the sort of place you are more likely to lose your life and then have gained nothing for your efforts. But then he might just be crazy.

The first hundred pages of the book were a bit dull. Well, all except for a small stolen moment or two for Chase and Ember. But by the end of the book it wasn't dull anymore. As the last couple of pages wound up I just wanted more.

Chase was great. If one had to be in a dystopian novel being loved ferociously by Chase would go a long way to making it alright. It is like his soul is entwined with hers. If she were to perish he would go insane and then die of the loss. Very deep and moving. I wanted to share some of the moments that made this so apparent but they contain too many spoilers. Here is his declaration, "I love you, Em. I've loved you since I was eight years old, and I'll love you my whole life." Or even this observation sums it up, "The way he looks at you . . . like if I twisted your arm, his would fall off or something."

Definitely a great read and I can't wait for the next.

Moment Divine:
"Did I do something wrong?" I asked bluntly, and watched his guard drop.
"You? No." He shook his head. "No. Last night . . . I didn't mean . . ." He scratched a hand through his black hair, then laughed awkwardly. "I shouldn't have left."
"Why did you then?" I asked.
He leaned forward, elbows on his knees. The heels of his boots made a audible tapping against the cement.
Fresh air was overrated. I rose to go back downstairs, but he grabbed my hand.
"You're grieving," he blurted. "I didn't want you to think, I don't know, I was taking advantage of you." The words were obviously tied up inside of him, and he sighed, frustrated.
"I think I was the one taking advantage of you." I returned to my seat and looked down, but looked down a little ashamed. I hadn't thought he might feel that way.
He snorted. "In that case, please. Go right ahead."

Unravel Me: Book Review

Unravel Me

Tahereh Mafi

February 5th 2013
Young Adult | Science Fiction | Paranormal
Official Blurb - 
it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life.




Do not pick up this book if you are not ready to face some heavy stuff. It will challenge you.

Love the free flowing language. So very untethered much like actual thoughts. A fast flowing current full of so many different thoughts. Hard to tell which ones you will really act on or which reflect your heart.

Great. Definitely superior. Awesome. Words can't quite capture the experience of reading this. It is more like living intimately inside someone's mind than a work of fiction.

The language is a bit above board, fairly foul, but regardless I couldn't tear myself away from the book. Not even to save myself from a herd of stampeding rhinos. HOOKED. No matter the horror or the complete blatant disregard for grammar could save you from being hooked. So while I was right to fear reading this book. I just can't regret having read it. Though I laughed when Warner chastises Adam about how using foul language reflects poorly on his intelligence.

The imagery is fantastic. I was in raptures at some of the descriptions. This book is written so out of the norm. Really makes me wonder what it is like to live in Tahereh Mafi's mind. Does Juliette's mind follow the same pattern as Tahereh's or is it a reflection of a bunch of research? They say write what you know. Just saying. :)

So many great people at Omega Point. I really hope so many of them survive to entertain me another day.

In the beginning I loved how our heroine doesn't take the traditional path. She isn't completely blind to the evil around her. If only her hormones weren't so very needy and consuming. She knows quite a bit about philosophy and can see the evil everywhere. She really has a better view but even though she says she won't trust Warner or other she still does. Her biggest fault is deception. Lies, lies and more lies. For someone crazy it is surprising she isn't a bit more forthcoming. So she deceives those who most warrant her trust and is true to those who most want to use her in ways that are against her choice. So very disturbing and horrifying. I wish I could have slapped some sense into her. Some part of me wants to demand revenge or restitution for what she has done, very willingly. But she has been through so much. Seems everyone can use that blanket of justification in this world. Definitely a bunch of hopeful gray areas mixed into these characters. My desperate hope is that there is a great heaping batch of forgiveness coming her way in the next book instead of heartbreak.

I am definitely not on to forgive someone who has no remorse. Especially when it comes to bestowing trust. So I can't agree with Juliette and her opinion of Warner. Sure it all looks pretty on paper but NO REMORSE should not be over looked. Juliette needs to get her hormones in check. She is flirting with the line of unforgivable. And that is putting it lightly. Geez woman have you no loyalty? Does love mean so little to you? Her defense of "I'm crazy!" is getting just a tad bit old. Especially since she knows better. Nothing deranged about her. It is interesting to see her love triangle. How it so perfectly captures unrepentant bad boy and heart of gold guy. Who doesn't feel attraction to a bad boy? But please, I bed of you either make a quick decision, Adam (Ahem, not biased at all here.) Or put us out of our misery. Actually maybe it would be better to just put all three of you out of your misery.

I love that Tahereh is always making fun of her own characters. Kenji is perhaps the most delightful character of the bunch. He makes for the best instrument of humor and correction for the others. Who wouldn't like him?

Very raw and entertaining read. Some parts I read a handful of times before I was able to proceed. I am equal parts craving and fearing the finale. Likely by the time it is finally released I will be consumed more by fear and foreboding than hope.

The parting line is awe inspiring. A bit humorous yet so very kick butt. 

No second book syndrome here. Prepare to be blown away, even decimated. Yet magically back on your feet begging for more. But don't beg Tahereh for mercy because she knows how to pack it all the while smiling at your torment.

Having trouble clearing all thoughts of Unravel Me from my mind. Like cotton candy. Yummy, sticky and bright. With the accompanying sugar high and crash.

A must read if you think you can take it!

There are so many great quotes and moments in this book I had a hard time just selecting a few. Sorry to all those that are left in the dark. But I don't want to spoil it all. :)
Moments Divine:
"How much do you weigh?"
"Wow. Is that how you talk to every girl you meet? That explains so much."
"I'm about one hundred seventy-five pounds," he says. "Of muscle."
I stare at him. "Would you like an award?"
"Well, well, well," he says, cocking his head, the barest hint of a smile flickering across his face. "Look who's the smart-ass now."
"I think you're rubbing off on me," I say.
But he's not smiling anymore.
"Listen," he says. "I'm not trying to flatter myself by pointing this out, but I could toss you across the room with my pinkie finger. You weigh, like, less than nothing. I'm almost twice your body mass." He pauses. "So how the hell did you pin me against the wall?"
"What?" I frown. "What are you talking about?"
"I'm talking about you" --he points at me--"pinning me"--he points at himself--"against the wall." He points at the wall.
"You mean you actually couldn't move?" I blink. "I thought you were just afraid of touching me."
"No," he says. "I legit could not move. I could hardly breathe."
"It's not that I don't care about what you're going through," he says "It's not like I want to see you all depressed or whatever. It's just that this life is messed up enough as it is," he says. "And I'm sick of you being so caught up in your own little world all the time. You act like this whole ting--everything we do--is a joke. You don't take any of it seriously--"
"What?" I cut him off. "That's not true--I do take this seriously--"
"Bullshit." He laughs a short, sharp, angry laugh. "All you do is sit around and think about your feelings. You've got problems. Boo-freaking-hoo," he says. "Your parents hate you and it's so hard but you have to wear gloves for the rest of your life because you kill people when you touch them. Who gives a shit?" He's breathing hard enough for me to hear him. "As far as I can tell, you've got food in your mouth and clothes on your back and a place to pee in peace whenever you feel like it. Those aren't problems. That's called living like a king. And I'd really appreciate it if you'd grow the hell up and stop walking around like the world crapped on your only roll of toilet paper. Because it's stupid," he says, barely reining in his temper. "It's stupid, and it's ungrateful. You don't have a clue what everyone else in the world is going through right now. You don't have a clue, Juliette. And you don't seem to give a damn, either."
I swallow, so hard.
"Now I am trying," he says, "to give you a chance to fix things. I keep giving you opportunities to do things differently. To see past the sad little girl you used to be--the sad little girl you keep clinging to--and stand up for yourself. Stop crying. Stop sitting in the dark counting out all your individual feelings about how sad and lonely you are. Wake up," he says. "You're not the only person in this world who doesn't want to get out of bed in the morning. You're not the only one with daddy issues and severely screwed-up DNA. You can be whoever the hell you want to be now. You're not in that shitty asylum, and you're no longer stuck being Warner's shitty little experiment. So make a choice," he says. "Make a choice and stop wasting everyone's time. Stop wasting your own time. Okay?"
"I don't have mental blocks--"
"Yeah you do." he snorts. "You definitely do. You have severe mental constipation."

Asunder: Book Review


Jodi Meadows

Katherine Tegen Books
January 29th 2013
Young Adult | Fantasy | Romance
Official Blurb - 
Ana has always been the only one. Asunder. Apart. But after Templedark, when many residents of Heart were lost forever, some hold Ana responsible for the darksouls–and the newsouls who may be born in their place.

Many are afraid of Ana’s presence, a constant reminder of unstoppable changes and the unknown. When sylph begin behaving differently toward her and people turn violent, Ana must learn to stand up not only for herself but for those who cannot stand up for themselves.

Ana was told that nosouls can’t love. But newsouls? More than anything, she wants to live and love as an equal among the citizens of Heart, but even when Sam professes his deepest feelings, it seems impossible to overcome a lifetime of rejection.

In this second book in the Newsoul trilogy, Ana discovers the truth about reincarnation and will have to find a way to embrace love and make her young life meaningful. Once again, Jodi Meadows explores the extraordinary beauty and shadowed depths of the soul in a story equal parts epic romance and captivating fantasy.






That was the first half of the book. Ana is such a complainer. Nothing goes how she wants it to and she will remind us so very many times of how unfortunate her life is. The half way point is where we finally get to the knowledge that is the foundation of this strange world. Then a whole bunch of really weird stuff happens.


Considering such a slow tedious start the ending wasn't so bad. A bit of action and drama. Most importantly there is finally something to root for. Some purpose and direction. Even so I don't think I will be finishing this series. Such a shame since the covers are so very pretty.

It's been months since Aria last saw Perry. Months since Perry was named Blood Lord of the Tides, and Aria was charged with an impossible mission. Now, finally, they are about to be reunited. But their reunion is far from perfect. The Tides don't take kindly to Aria, a former Dweller. And with the worsening Aether storms threatening the tribe's precarious existence, Aria begins to fear that leaving Perry behind might be the only way to save them both.

Threatened by false friends, hidden enemies, and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night?

In this second book in her spellbinding Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi combines fantasy and dystopian elements to create a captivating love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.

Please forgive my rambling thoughts on this book review. I loved it so much I can barely put together coherent sentences.

Yum, oh my goodness it was worth the late hour I had to stay up to finish it. Read it in practically one day. 

There are almost no words to describe this book. You just have to read it and you will understand.

The characters are fantastic. So full and vibrant. The action is never ending.

Perry put in another astounding performance. Wow!

I have to own this one!

Love the language and culture. So very realistic. So many emotions and everyone believable. Wow!

Also, very heartbreaking. I fear the real pain from that won't show itself just yet. Deep loss.

Basically this book does not suffer from the book two syndrome. If you haven't tried Under the Never Sky you need to do it already! It will be worth every heart pounding awesome moment.

Scarlet: Book Review


Marissa Meyer

Feiwel and Friends
February 5th 2013
Young Adult | Science Fiction
Official Blurb - 
Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother and the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own.

As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.

Much better than the first book. Kai is still an idiot. I wish I could bodily harm him. But the rest was much better. There is still that slightly wacky feel to the story but it isn't quite as pronounced. 

We still get to follow Cinder and Kai. But this time we get to meet a few new characters. Scarlet, little red riding hood, has to be the best version of her name sake I have come across. A red head in all her stereotypical glory. Fiery from top to bottom. She is so much fun to follow. Never a dull moment. Wolf, of course, adds to the fun. Maybe I just loved this book because of Wolf. I am so very partial to werewolves. These aren't your typical werewolves. Definitely more of a science fiction feel than paranormal. Built rather than bred, like Frankenstein. I liked Iko better as a ship. Somehow she didn't feel quite as inappropriate, for a machine. Or perhaps I am growing used to her. 

I really think all these good forces need to get together if they have any chance of success.

There is so much going on in this book. Action, romance, spunk, betrayal, deception, and a giant dose of stupid decisions. Very entertaining. Great characters for the most part. Let us hope that Kai will improve with age. Fascinating use of the Red Riding Hood story put in a science fiction world. Probably one of my favorite retellings of late and especially for this particular tale.

I am so glad I read this. The first book really disappointed and turned me off from the whole series. This one on the other hand was a delight to read and made me hungry for more. Now that the stage is set and we are going to have some fun. So if you likewise weren't the most impressed with the first consider giving Scarlet a try. You might just like it.

Everbound: Book Review


Brodi Ashton

Balzer + Bray
January 22nd 2013
Young Adult | Paranormal
Greek Mythology
Official Blurb - 
Nikki Beckett could only watch as her boyfriend, Jack, sacrificed himself to save her, taking her place in the Tunnels of the Everneath for eternity — a debt that should’ve been hers. She’s living a borrowed life, and she doesn’t know what to do with the guilt. And every night Jack appears in her dreams, lost and confused and wasting away.

Desperate for answers, Nikki turns to Cole, the immortal bad boy who wants to make her his queen — and the one person least likely to help. But his heart has been touched by everything about Nikki, and he agrees to assist her in the only way he can: by taking her to the Everneath himself.

Nikki and Cole descend into the Everneath, only to discover that their journey will be more difficult than they’d anticipated — and more deadly. But Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack — even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own.

In this enthralling sequel to Everneath, Brodi Ashton tests the bonds of destiny and explores the lengths we’ll go to for the ones we love.

So many previous memories of falling in love with Jack. it just makes you want to fall down in a heavy sigh. To be so fortunate as her. So many times we are reminded of the beauty she has in her love with Jack. The journey to find him is full of desperation. So full is the desperation I struggled to breath and couldn't read fast enough. I suppose I was inspired with an unshakeable fear that if I breathed too deep or didn't read fast enough Jack would be forever lost. But as the story progresses the strange world she travels slowly changes everything. Bit by bit everything seems a bit unreal. As if more and more things don't make sense. How, why? I guess it all felt a bit dreamlike. As if it would disappear too easily.

When the last scene begins to unfold I was amazed at the sheer stupidity of Cole. Are you kidding me!?! I can fully understand the decision Nikki makes and drive behind it. I wholeheartedly agree. In fact I volunteer to make picket signs in support of her goal.

I am apprehensive about the final book. Things are about to get ugly. It brings to mind the idiom, Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. But it won't happen again no matter what you have up your sleeve.

I was so paranoid that Nikki would give up on Jack and fall for Cole or Will or someone else. I wanted to scream at any guy that came near her to back off.

It was an amazing read. Dishes piled up and the children had to feed themselves while I finished this tale. I definitely recommend this series.

Finnikin of the Rock: Book Review

Finnikin of the Rock

Melina Marchetta

Candlewick Press
February 9th 2010
Young Adult | Fantasy
Official Blurb - 
At the age of nine, Finnikin is warned by the gods that he must sacrifice a pound of flesh to save his kingdom. He stands on the rock of the three wonders with his friend Prince Balthazar and Balthazar's cousin, Lucian, and together they mix their blood to safeguard Lumatere.

But all safety is shattered during the five days of the unspeakable, when the king and queen and their children are brutally murdered in the palace. An impostor seizes the throne, a curse binds all who remain inside Lumatere's walls, and those who escape are left to roam the land as exiles, dying by the thousands in fever camps.

Ten years later, Finnikin is summoned to another rock--to meet Evanjalin, a young novice with a startling claim: Balthazar, heir to the throne of Lumatere, is alive. This arrogant young woman claims she'll lead Finnikin and his mentor, Sir Topher, to the prince. Instead, her leadership points them perilously toward home. Does Finnikin dare believe that Lumatere might one day rise united? Evanjalin is not what she seems, and the startling truth will test Finnikin's faith not only in her but in all he knows to be true about himself and his destiny.

In a bold departure from her acclaimed contemporary novels, Printz Medalist Melina Marchetta has crafted an epic fantasy of ancient magic, feudal intrigue, romance, and bloodshed that will rivet you from the first page.

It seems such an odd word to describe this book. Their world contains no beauty. Very degrading circumstances and suffering aplenty. Survival is by no means certain. Such horrors they witness at such a young age. But as a whole this is beautiful.

What a journey these characters take. And every step of the way you can't help but love them. Finnikin is a compelling character. It is no wonder his people love him. And the dialog is sometimes enchanting. That ending is so very sweet.

What starts out with vague prophecies and strange names or titles ends so meaningfully. I love that the horrible prophecy turns out to be nothing of the sort. Just his misinterpretation of it. The story will inspire tears, adrenaline, longing, hope, and loyalty. There are funny moments mixed in among the serious and dire. No character reaches the end without trial.

The romance is certainly not the main focus of the book but it is a pivotal part of it. The relationships between the characters aren't shallow. They evolve bit by satisfactory bit. Everything feels just right. So very glad I was recommended this book. I immediately want to open up to the first page and immerse myself back in this extraordinary world.

This book could easily be a stand alone based on its beautiful ending. Enough closure without being coddled and just enough loose ends to make it seem that the characters will indeed live on long after I close the book. Even though this book closes up the point of view for these characters I am still longing for more.

Bewitching: Book Review


Alex Flinn

February 9th 2010
Young Adult | Fantasy
Fairy Tale Retelling
Official Blurb - 
Bewitching can be a beast. . . .

Once, I put a curse on a beastly and arrogant high school boy. That one turned out all right. Others didn't.

I go to a new school now--one where no one knows that I should have graduated long ago. I'm not still here because I'm stupid; I just don't age.

You see, I'm immortal. And I pretty much know everything after hundreds of years--except for when to take my powers and butt out.

I want to help, but things just go awry in ways I could never predict. Like when I tried to free some children from a gingerbread house and ended up being hanged. After I came back from the dead (immortal, remember?), I tried to play matchmaker for a French prince and ended up banished from France forever. And that little mermaid I found in the Titanic lifeboat? I don't even want to think about it.

Now a girl named Emma needs me. I probably shouldn't get involved, but her gorgeous stepsister is conniving to the core. I think I have just the thing to fix that girl--and it isn't an enchanted pumpkin. Although you never know what will happen when I start . . . bewitching.

I don't think I have ever hated a book so much as this one. It takes those happy fairy tales from childhood and distorts them into horrible editions. The kind in which there is no hope and certainly no happy ending. Every bad thing besets the characters and not only do they not have the gumption to stand up for themselves. Even if they took a stand it wouldn't end well. This is the sort of story that will suck all happiness and hope out of you. Before long you will find yourself wishing you could put the poor girl out of her misery. Surely death would be better than this. In fact one of the characters does exactly that. Depressing. The characters are irritating and not worth the effort of caring for. There is a retelling of Hansel and Gretel contained in these pages that is just weak and annoying. In fact just about every retelling contained herein is weak and annoying.
I recommend steering clear of this unless you have a strong constitution for hopeless causes and bad endings.
