16069030The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

  • It took me a really long time to read this book, hence my being behind in the challenge.
  • It was good, but not a favorite.
  • Kestrel was pretty interesting, as was their society. (The world building was probably the best part). She was a piano player, and the general’s daughter. Her mind was sharp, but in their society, she is expected to be a good fighter.
  • So, she buys a slave? I’m not really sure why she did that, nor is it ever clarified throughout the story.
  • Arin is her new slave, and he has a secretive, mysterious past. I liked him, but he was kind of boring at first. I needed more from him.
  • Many of the characters have the potential to be great, but they often fell short. I just wasn’t connected the way I would like to be. I DID enjoy how many of them were not who they seemed. That added a much needed aspect to the book.
  • The book grew more interesting as it went on, as more things are happening and being revealed and twisted into crazy plots.
  • I actually did not like the ending. I found it to be boring and drawn out. Much of what was happening was not vital to the story, and it just made the book longer.
  • All in all, I like the book, but I would not call it a favorite. I might continue with series if the opportunity presents itself.

 

a_wrinkle_in_time_digest_2007A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

  • P.S. I know there is not a movie currently, but it is coming very soon, and now I am super excited!!!
  • I would have considered this to be a classic, so I did not know it was more of a middle grade book. That said, I really liked it!
  • It was totally not what I was expecting, though I’m not sure what I was expecting. It was a bit strange, but the story was really fun.
  • We’ve got a genius 5 year old boy, whom I would LOVE to know in real life. His name is Charles Wallace, like that’s his first name. So sophisticated.
  • The main character, Meg, sounds like your classic nerdy middle schooler, fully equipped with glasses and braces and a knack for mathematics. (AKA me and her would have been BFFs in middle school).
  • There are these three crazy ladies who lead the kids around on and insane adventure to find their father.
  • Oh, I forgot about Calvin! He was pretty cool, too, and he seemed smart as well.
  • All of the characters were fantastic! They completely made the book what it is. Though the plot and setting were really great as well.
  • Generally, their newfound universe is basically insane. There are some majorly crazy things going in the various places the kids go, and I found it a bit strange at first. After a while, I began to enjoy the craziness that is A Wrinkle in Time.
  • If you have not read this book and like science fiction or fantasy, GO READ IT before the movie comes out!!

 

Because You Love to Hate Me by Ameriie

This is not actually a review because I have only read 96 pages so far. It is a bunch of short stories, and some have been better than others. I am really excited for the one by Marissa Meyer, though! Maybe I’ll get a full review done when I have finished…

If you participated in #TheReadingQuest, how did you do? Have you read any of the books that I chose? Are you excited for the A Wrinkle in Time Movie?

Top 10 Books I Just Couldn’t Finish

IMG_1319

Guess What! It’s Tuesday again! Which means another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by the wonderful ladies at The Broke and The Bookish. This week we are discussing books that were difficult to finish or ones that were left unfinished. I personally used to despise not finish a book. Like, if I start I HAVE to finish. But these days, there are just so many books I want to read that I don’t have time to waste on ones that I am not enjoying. (Gosh, that sounds kind of harsh… yet rather true.) So, here are ten of the books that I have DNF’d (Did Not Finish).

*Many of these are pretty popular books, but I just didn’t find myself enjoying them. We are all entitled to our opinions, so please be respectful of mine. Thank you! 🙂 *

1. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

The premise was really neat here, but it just wasn’t for me. I loved the aspect of friendship and life during the war, yet I wasn’t sold. It might be one that I would pick up again, but who knows.

2. The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge

I found this one to be rather boring. It was also a bit strange. I kept waiting for something to happen with a tree, but nothing of the sort occurred. Maybe I just didn’t get far enough, but you’d think a book with a tree in the title would mention said tree fairly early on…

3. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I actually don’t have much to say for this one, other than that I didn’t really give it a fair try. I read like ten pages then gave up. Maybe not even ten. So, I must try to read it again one of these days.

4. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

I tried reeeaaaallly hard to like this one. I wanted it to be one of my favorites, but that didn’t really happen. I liked Lazlo as a character (hello, librarian book nerds are the best), but the story was very slow. I felt I was waiting forever for something to happen, yet it never did.

5. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

This book was huge! That’s probably my main reason for stopping, that and the fact that I was little bored. I also thought A Court of Thorns and Roses was a bit slow, though it was still good. I would still like to try reading it again, hopefully more successfully next time!

6. Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab

Ok, ok. I did really like This Savage Song, and they have such beautiful covers, but I just wasn’t feeling it. The book actually was not bad at all, I just needed to read it at a different time. Schwab’s writing is beautiful, and the characters are great, so hopefully I can pick this up again and really enjoy it!

7. Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

I really like the title of this book. It is kind of mysterious, yet powerful. I wasn’t really grabbed by the plot, so it was a DNF for me. I did find a really awesome quote, though: “Tell the wind and fire where to stop, but don’t tell me.”

8. The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkein

This is kind of a classic, and I’m a fan of the movies. Unfortunately, this older style of writing is a bit difficult to read and enjoy. Possibly when I’m older I will understand it better!

9. The Young Elites by Marie Lu

I LOVE Lu’s Legend, as it was fabulous! I was not nearly as into this book, though. The writing was still wonderful, but just something about it was a little disappointing. I would like to give it another try eventually.

10. The Rule of Thoughts by James Dashner

This is the sequel to The Eye of Minds, which I really enjoyed. It was fast paced and had an intriguing video game world. However, I got a third of the way through this one and just stopped. I’m not actually sure why, maybe I got bored? I don’t think there was quite as much action as I would have liked, but maybe I can finish the series one day.

Do you often DNF books? What makes you do so? Do you ever find sequels to be disappointing? Link me to your TTT!

The Reading Quest Update + Reviews

img_1531

Hello, hello! We are halfway (and a litte more) through #TheReadingQuest hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight, and I think I’m doing pretty good! I’m sure there are people reading far more than me, but considering the speed in which I usually read, I’m quite happy. (During this Quest, I am reading each book in about four days, when usually it would take me over a week with school going on.)

I have really enjoyed the books that I have chosen so far and have been able to keep up with my original schedule. I have read three books so far: Shadow Run by Adrianne Strickland & Michael Miller, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han, and I’d Tell You I Love You But Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter. I am currently reading The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski, but unfortunately I am a little behind. If you’re interested in what I plan on reading for the rest of the Quest, check out my sign-up post!

Update:

Overall EXP: 40

Overall HP: 115

Current Level: 1

All of this is according to the info I have entered into this lovely spreadsheet created by Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews. (Thank you sooo much, Lauren, for creating such a helpful tool in my reading adventure!!) Also, don’t judge for my rather low level/EXP, I am doing this for FUN, and I am not concerned about the points!

Reviews:

25669098Shadow Run by Adrianne Strickland & Michael Miller

  • I was pleasantly surprised by this book! I had been anticipating it for quite a while, but it was better than I imagined it would be!
  • I included this book in my Top Ten Tuesday post about Star Wars read-a-likes, but I was not aware of the extent of their similarities. I found Shadow Run to be very VERY similar to Star Wars, which is not a bad thing. There is an ominous force controlling people, a rogue pilot with an awesome ship, adventurous royalty, similarly dressed guards, and even light saber like weapons!
  • Qole was a really awesome pilot, and I would have loved to be a member of her crew. Even though the work they did with Shadow (a mysterious substance that can poison people) was rather dangerous.
  • I don’t know how to pronounce Qole, but I keep saying it in my head like “Cole”.
  • All the members of Qole’s crew were really cool, and they all had mysteriously complex backstories. They seemed very real and each played an important role in the story. I love complex minor characters, as they add depth and personality to the story.
  • And next we have Nev. Interesting, strangely knowledgeable Nev. There’s not really a whole lot I can say about him that won’t spoil the book, but he was a pretty cool character. I kind of didn’t like him at first, but by the end he was tied for favorite (with Qole of course).
  •  Now, Qole and Nev had an interesting relationship. There was no “insta-love” or anything like that, and it seemed they didn’t really like each other at all for a while. The story wasn’t focused on romance, which was kind of nice. (Don’t get me wrong, I love a good romance, but sometimes it’s refreshing to have something without.)
  • I loved their universe! It was very Star Wars-y and full of multiple planet systems. They traveled through space several times, which sounds kind of fun! Each planet was described differently, so I felt I was right there, too!
  • The universe had a lot of history that was hinted at, but never really expanded upon. Maybe we can get more of that in the next book.
  • In the end, I loved it!! Shadow Run is a really fun, fast moving sci-fi book for fans of all kinds!

 

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny15749186 Han

  • I have been wanting to read this one for some time now, and The Reading Quest was the perfect opportunity!
  • It focuses on Lara Jean and some of the boys that she has “loved” before… hence the title. She has written, but not mailed, a letter to each of them, and someone somehow mails them without her knowing.
  • One of the boys who receives a letter, Pete, is the local popular guy, while another is her sister’s boyfriend AKA their neighbor.
  • Now, I didn’t really like Pete. He was just kind of a jerk. He seemed to be your stereotypical jock who doesn’t really care about anyone but himself. Fortunately, he’s changing, which is good.
  • I personally was rooting for the neighbor, Josh. He was nicer and cuter and generally better than Pete.
  • Boys aside, Lara Jean has two sisters, both of whom are really awesome! One of them has gone away to college, but the younger one is still around to bother Lara Jean and do what sisters do. The three of them had such a wonderful relationship! It would be wonderful to have sisters like that, who always care about you and will always have fun.
  • Their dad was pretty cool, too, even though he was very much your typical book dad. He loved his daughters and made sure they were taken care of.
  • Overall, the characters were a bit meh personality wise, but it was still a good book! I still felt for Lara Jean and wanted to her to be happy!

 

28646502I’d Tell You I Love You But Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter

  • Hello, secret spy school! Cammie has such an awesome school full of secret passages and interesting classes.
  • Other than the school, Cammie has two wonderful best friends. They each have personalities as vivid as Cammie’s, and they are important to her work and the story.
  • I really liked both Liz and Bex, whom are both fun, lively, and wonderful friends. The three of them work extremely well together, and I love when best friends are included in books and are given an important role in the story.
  • Cammie’s mom is really cool, too, as she is also a spy. She is the headmistress of the school, yet she always takes time to eat dinner and chill with her daughter. She has the best of intentions, and clearly loves Cammie.
  • Josh is a bit stereotypical and boring, but I still want the best for him and Cammie. (Wow, I didn’t realize I read two books with a love interest named Josh!)
  • He is showing her what it’s like to have a normal life, even though he doesn’t exactly know that he is.
  • Overall, I enjoyed this book! It was fun and interesting, given the spy school aspect. I loved the involvement of best friends and a loving mom!

Top 10 Fictional Schools That May or May Not Be Better Than Real Ones

IMG_1319

Happy Tuesday everyone! We’ve got another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and it’s school themed! It’s back to school time again (uuggggghhhh) and I’m celebrating with a list of books that have wonderful (or terrible) fictional schools. So, I’ve got my list as usual, but some of them are great and wonderful, but some of them not so much…

1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Haha you didn’t think you could get through this post without me mentioning the ever-famous, most wonderful and amazing school of all time, did you? HOGWARTS!! Of course, I had to include it. A list of fictional schools is not complete without Hogwarts!! Of course, it is far better than any real school you could go to.

2. The Gallagher Girls by Ally Carter

Woo, a spy school! I read maybe two books of this series in middle school, way before I understood the concept of a series. Unfortunately, small, uninformed me read them out of order, and I failed to read the first one… such a disgrace. Anyways, their super secret spy school was totally cool!

3. Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra & Dhonielle Clayton

This elite dance academy was kind of evil. Like, all these girls are terrible to each other and would do nearly anything to get the top role. It’s cool they go to a school where they can follow their dreams and become amazing dancers, but their drama is awful.

4. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Ok, this was so cute! It was one of the first contemporaries/romances that I read, and I loved it. Anyways, Eleanor is often made fun of during school, and usually Park is there to make her feel better. Their school is pretty typical, but I would want to avoid the people that are not so nice to them.

5. Virals by Kathy Reichs

Another school that is more typical, but it’s a private school (I’m pretty sure… it’s been a while…) with lots of fancy rich kids. However, the main characters are there on scholarship due to their parents’ jobs. I mean, it can’t be that bad of a school…

6. The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’Brien

A school where you are filmed as a part of a reality TV show is not extremely appealing to me, but to each is own. There were some crazy, strange things going on there, though, that would definitely keep me from going there.

7. Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

Here we’ve got a fancy prep school, where the main character is starting her junior year. Lot’s of secrets and mysterious things going on here, which seems a little suspicious if you ask me.

8. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

This one’s about a girl who goes to a school for witches and the like. Harry Potter-ish maybe? Sounds pretty good!

9. You’re Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner

Here we have a school for the deaf, which is something I have not read about before. Unfortunately, the main character is forced to go to a regular school, which turns out to be rather difficult. And she’s an artist! (I love art!!)

10. The Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz

This one has the children of Disney villains as the main characters!! (Also Disney made it into a movie which was actually fairly good, and now there’s a second one.) We follow the characters through their journey from their home island to a school on the mainland.

Which fictional schools would you love to go to? Link me to your TTT! 

Top 10 Book Recommendations for Star Wars Fans

IMG_1319

Hello, and happy Tuesday! We are back to Top Ten Tuesdays again, hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s prompt is “Ten book recommendations for __________”, and I have chose to help out the Star Wars fans out there! I LOVE Star Wars and and sci-fi stuff, so this seems like a perfect fit!

1. Star Wars book adaptations

There’s, like, a million of these!! And what better way to please Star Wars fans than with Star Wars? I never actually knew there were so many of these until I started looking. There’s even some YA ones, including ones by Claudia Gray (whom I have included later on this list as well).

2. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman

This is generally just a really good book, whether it has anything to do with Star Wars or not. Though, it is similar in the fact that they both take place in outer space and have lots of planets and massive space ships.

3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Again, I’m basing this one off of the futuristic aspects and really cool ships! (Side note: Marissa Meyer is wonderful and you should go read her books like right now.)

4. Shadow Run by Adrianne Strickland

Hey, cool space ships again! The blurb gave a Han Solo-ish vibe, talking about a great captain of a ship and all that. (I should be reading this one soon, as it is part of my #TheReadingQuest!)

5. Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray

There are lots of amazing droids in Star Wars, like C3PO, R2-D2, and BB8, and there are some neat ones in this book, too! Plus even more awesome ships and travelling to other planets!

6. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman

Forbidden love among stars and unfamiliar planets… sounds a little like Leia and Han?

7. Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Look, spaceships again! (Haha, I didn’t realize that was my criteria until now..) And love and secrets and new planets!

8. The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron

I read this quite a while ago, and it kind of reminded me of The Giver at first, but it twisted into sci-fi eventually. Maybe the next book will give more answers?

9. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

This one’s focused on travelling between universes and really awesome technology that allows people to do so. Oh, and there’s some romance mixed in, that develops more throughout the other books. (No spaceships this time! XD)

10. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

War against aliens! I mean, you could say there are aliens in Star Wars, right? Plus, I don’t think I have ever heard a negative review about this book, so it must be good!

Are you a Star Wars fan? Do you enjoy reading sci-fi books? Link me to your TTT!

Double Review: Eliza and Her Monsters + When Dimple Met Rishi

IMG_1503

Hey guys! I hope you are all having a lovely day, and maybe I can make it better by sharing two of my newest favorite books! I read these two (Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia and When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon) back to back, and I fell in love almost instantly. I haven’t always been into the contemporary/romance stuff, but recently I have found them to be light and fun and really enjoyable! So, even if you are unsure of the genre, I would encourage you to give these a try!

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

31931690Publisher: HarperCollins

Release Date: May 30, 2017

Genre: YA Contemporary

Her story is a phenomenon. Her life is a disaster.

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try.

Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.

But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.


Okay, I had heard sooo many good things about this book and it had a pretty good blurb, so I knew I had to try it. And I am so glad that I did! This is probably one of the best books I have read in a long time, and it has easily become one of my favorites.

Eliza and Wallace are such geeks/nerds (whatever your preference) and I can totally relate to them! Eliza spends most of her time locked in her room writing her webcomic, Monstrous Sea. And it’s worked out pretty well for her, too, since she’s practically internet famous. She made me wish I was that good at writing or art, so I could be that popular. Even though she has anxiety, Eliza is generally happy and can find happiness through her comic. I’m glad that this was shown through a more positive/happy light, and it added depth and a realistic sense to her personality.

IMG_1500

Eliza spent a lot of her time online, and never really connected with people at school. I can totally relate, as I’m sure many, many people can! I would much rather be by myself than with a huge group of obnoxious teenagers that don’t seem to have any common sense. Eliza knows the value of a friendship, even if it is online. That does not make it any less meaningful than having a friend you see face to face. Unfortunately, Eliza’s parents don’t really get that. They want her to go out and be like a “normal” teenager, even though she has her own way of doing that from the comfort and safety of her bedroom. So, her parent’s weren’t my favorite, but they grow on you…

ANNNDDDDD enters Wallace! Wallace is the new kid, and he doesn’t talk much. Or at all when lots of people are around. He prefers to pass notes or text, even to Eliza or his friends. And let me just say Eliza and Wallace’s note passing is ADORABLE. XD Plus, Wallace is the number one fan of Eliza’s comic, Monstrous Sea. But get this: he doesn’t know who she is. Nor does anyone because Eliza’s anonymous online, and prefers to remain that way.

Anyways, Wallace is kind of mysterious and unreadable. He’s got a secret, complicated backstory that makes you want to keep reading and reading until every last question is answered. That’s something I really liked about this book. It’s not terribly predictable, so there’s some element of surprise mixed in, which is rather fun.

In the end, go read this book NOW if you love comic writing, note passing, wonderful and relatable characters. (There’s also some sketches and snippets from the comic that are interesting, too!) Zappia did an amazing job representing the introverted, anxiety stricken community in a way that made you understand their thoughts and feelings, even if you are unfamiliar with it. It was refreshing and lovable, something I long to find in every book I read.

Quotes

“You found me in a constellation.”

“I made Monstrous Sea because it’s the story I wanted. I wanted a story like it, and I couldn’t find one, so I created it myself.”

Disappearing is an art form, and I am its queen.”

“It’s not that I don’t like the outdoors. It’s that I don’t see the point of the outdoors when there’s so much I could be doing indoors.”

“Blank pages are supposed to be an invitation. A challenge, even. Here is your canvas–how creative can you be? What limits can you stretch to bring to life that creature in your head? A blank piece of paper is infinite possibilities.”


When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

28458598Publisher: Simon Pulse

Release Date: May 30, 2017

Genre: YA Contemporary & Romance

Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?

Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.

The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?

Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways. 


I had heard some mixed reviews on this one, but I LOVED IT!! It’s so adorable! Dimple is very individual and does not want to follow her parent’s unreasonable expectations, while Rishi is determined to follow Indian traditions flawlessly. They literally could not be more opposite. But it works!

Dimple and Rishi meet at a summer coding camp called Insomnia Con, and get off to a rough start. But, they learn to like each other (wow, what a surprise) and it just kind of goes from there. Personally, I would have liked to see more tidbits about their actual coding project, instead of just their love life. It did take place at a summer camp for making apps, so including coding and app making would seem like the logical choice.

That said, it was cute romance. Both Dimple and Rishi had lots of unique characteristics that made it relatable. There was also some good friend relationships, which seem hard to come by these days. Celia, Dimple’s roommate, is a good friend for her, even they don’t see eye to eye at first. Plus, both Dimple and Rishi have nice, loving families that are incorporated nicely into the story. Hooray for good families!!

IMG_1501

The book was written in third person (not my favorite), but I actually didn’t mind! Sometimes the writing is monotone and impersonal when in third person, but I was totally connected with the characters the whole time, and Dimple and Rishi had very different voices. It alternates between their points of view frequently, but I was not confused at all. In fact, I really liked the style, and am eager for Menon’s next book!!

I would highly recommend this one to anyone in need of a good YA contemporary/romance. It’s super cute and easy to read. You will fall in love with the characters and their quirks, and find yourself smiling by the end! 🙂

Chat with me! Have you read either of these books, or any good contemporary/romance lately? What POV do you like best?

The Reading Quest
