Words from me

I've sorta lost touch with my inner book blogger. I'm still reading books like I always have, but I haven't felt like I should be writing reviews. For what reason I'm not quite sure. I'll be posting review every now and then, but I don't like reviewing a book that a lot of people have review or more so when the book is very popular and well know such as THE HUNGER GAMES which I just review in May. I do have a bunch of review books that I need to post reviews on so don't worry all you authors out there I've read a hand full of them. I haven't forgetten about you.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning?

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival

Oh em gee! Guys lets just say that everything I heard about this book was right! It was amazinglysuperfantastical beyond belief. You know you enjoyed trying to read my made up word. Anywho I was super happy when I received this copy in the mail by winning a giveaway!

I jumped right into it after I was finished reading the other book I was working on. The beginning was a bit dry for my taste, but it really picked up in the next few chapters. I was one of the people that read the book before the movie! Which I was very proud of myself for doing because I had to wait to watch the movie seeing as how I was half way through it when the movie came out in theaters.

Katniss is an amazing lead character! I adore the way she has to act fearless and like an adult because of the situation at hand. But inside I know she has a soft spot. It's touching the way she talks about certain people in her life and shows her feelings towards them. Gale I'm not so sure about the way I feel towards his character I like what I've read about him but I didn't get enough of him in the picture to really tell if I liked him or disliked him more.

Peeta! Well lets just say he's not my favorite character, but he is up there. He's sweet, shy, and has an innocents about him that I like. Throughout the story I had mixed feelings about him because some of the things that happen which I won't spoil, but I'm kind of on a balance here. I like him but I don't.

Back to the main story line. The Hunger Games is thrilling and suspenseful I was never bored and there was always something lurking in the corner to surprise me. I would be reading and talk to myself like "Oh this is going to happen" and the something else happened so I was bad at guessing the "next big thing" when it came the this one.

This is becoming a really long review but I could go on and on about this book. So I'll just stop while I'm ahead and finish by saying I can't wait to reading Catching Fire and Mockingjay!

Review: Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly

Angel Burn
Synopsis: Willow knows she's different from other girls, and not just because she loves tinkering with cars. Willow has a gift. She can look into the future and know people's dreams and hopes, their sorrows and regrets, just by touching them. she has no idea where this power comes from. But the assassin, Alex, does. Gorgeous, mysterious Alex knows more about Willow than Willow herself does. He knows that her powers link to dark and dangerous forces and that he's one of the few humans left who can fight them. When Alex finds himself falling in love with his sworn enemy, he discovers that nothing is as it seems, least of all good and evil.

Review: ZOMG! You guys I think I'm in love! This is definitely going to be my favorite series of all of 2012! I absolutely positively love L.A. Weatherly now. This book was beyond amazing. I knew I was going to love it just by reading the synopsis but I loved it even MORE after I read the story.

Alex and Willow are great together even through all the tension at first it was awesome! This story made pictures in my head as I read it. L.A. Weatherly is so descriptive in her writing! Am I right or am I right? I love the way everything flows together as you read. Something else I enjoyed was how she alternated between first person and it seemed like third person but I'm not quite sure, anyways that was cool! I love books that do that. More if it's between the two romantically involved characters.

If you have not read this book you are CRAZY!!!!!!!!! I bet you'll love as much or even maybe more than I do! It has angels, physic powers, and much more! You find out something at the end that you never would have expected in 10 million years. 

It's just awesome now get off you butt, stop reading my review and go buy it for yourself so you can find out too! If you don't have money go to the library or ask a friend to borrow it! That's one choice I know none of you will regret.

Review: The Agency: A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee

A Spy in the House (The Agency, #1)Synopsis: Rescued from the gallows in 1850s London, young orphan (and thief) Mary Quinn is surprised to be offered a singular education, instruction in fine manners — and an unusual vocation. Miss Scrimshaw’s Academy for Girls is a cover for an all-female investigative unit called The Agency, and at seventeen, Mary is about to put her training to the test. Assuming the guise of a lady’s companion, she must infiltrate a rich merchant’s home in hopes of tracing his missing cargo ships. But the household is full of dangerous deceptions, and there is no one to trust — or is there? Packed with action and suspense, banter and romance, and evoking the gritty backstreets of Victorian London, this breezy mystery debuts a daring young detective who lives by her wits while uncovering secrets — including those of her own past.

Review: I asked for this book because a book blogger on YouTube, who I can't recall the name of at the moment, said that this series was awesome and that it was one of her favorites! So I asked for the book read the synopsis, the book sounds great! Not as good as she made it seem because she made it sound like it was THE BOMB!

I didn't think it was the bomb at all! Until I got around 5 chapters in. That's when all the mystery and suspense and all that jazz comes in! Then I loved the book from that point on. It actually turned into THE BOMB, it just took a few chapters of reading for it to get to that point of entertainment and excitement! I would recommend this to people that love a good mystery and a little bit of romance twisted together to make an awesome read!

I adore the characters. And it was actually heartbreaking at parts, and once you read it you'll know what I'm talking about! I almost started to cry too. Mary Quinn is awesome I wonder what mysterious job she'll have next!

I'm using a lot of exclamation point... ha-ha OK anyways. I really enjoyed this read. It always kept me guessing and after the first few chapters I was never really bored with it, I actually want to get the second novel in the series and start reading it right now! So that's my review yea I know mine are kinda short but if you wanna know about a book don't you want it to be short and sweet?

Review: Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith

TantalizeSynopsis: Quincie Morris has never felt more alone. Her parents are dead, and her hybrid-werewolf first love is threatening to embark on a rite of passage that will separate them forever. Then, as she and her uncle are about to unveil their hot vampire-themed restaurant, a brutal murder leaves them scrambling for a chef. Can Quincie transform their new hire into a culinary Dark Lord before opening night? Can he wow the crowd in his fake fangs, cheap cape, and red contact lenses - or is there more to this earnest face than meets the eye? As human and preternatural forces clash, a deadly love triangle forms, and the line between predator and prey begins to blur. Who-s playing whom? And how long can Quincie play along before she loses everything? TANTALIZE marks Cynthia Leitich Smith-s delicious debut as a preeminent author of dark fantasy.

Review: Reading this book was awesome I didn't want to set it down not even to shower but of course you know I have to. Showering is hygiene and I like to be as clean as possible. Any-who now that you guys all know I like to be a clean person just unorganized sometimes on with the review.

This novel was pulse stopping. I loved it! It's definitely going to be on my favorites of 2012. Quincie is an outstanding lead character I thought. Kieren, the hybrid werewolf lover is mysterious and intriguing. All of the characters had their own jazz to them as do most characters in novels but Cynthia made them realistic in a visual way. Making pictures in your mind about what they looked like, how them acted, what scared them or didn't, if they were normal or a were. Just a very interesting and unpredictable read.

Kept me guessing on every page. Mystery is out of this world and mix that up with a vampire themed restaurant you have yourself an phenomenal book that you just want to sink your teeth into the next book in the series call Eternal!

Seems like I need to get me some wereabouts as to how I can get my claws on this next installment in the blood gurgling, weremetropolis, heart stopping novel Eternal.........
