Grey by EL James

Published June 18, 2015 by Vintage

See the world of Fifty Shades of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey.

In Christian’s own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world.

Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty—until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him—past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart.

Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

This book is intended for mature audiences ONLY!

My Thoughts:

We all know the story from Anna’s POV and I was REALLY excited to get the story from THE man himself….Christian Grey! I was slightly disappointed:(

The book was a little hard to get through even in Christian’s point of view since it was the same old story, which I expected due to it being a companion to the 50 series. But, I was expecting a little more from our boy! Ms. James kind of made him sound like an even more of a prick than he already is??? I was also expecting a little more of an epilogue???

Now, since the book was over 500 pages, I was under the impression that this book was from Christian’s perspective but included all 3 books from the series…. See what happens when you assume?

This book was only book one in a series of 3! UGH!!! I was a bit disappointed and am not sure if I will continue the other 2 books in this companion series? It took me a while to get through this first one and had actually considered putting it down a few times. Maybe I will pick up the third if it gives us a little more than what we got in darker??

Review: The Fearless by Emma Pass


The Fearless by Emma Pass17338059

Published on April 24, 2014 by Delacorte Books For Young Readers

400 Pages

Review copy given by publisher in exchange of an honest review.

Blurb:

The Fearless. An army, powered by an incredible new serum that makes each soldier stronger, sharper, faster than their enemies. Intended as a force for good, the serum has a terrible side-effect – anyone who takes it is stripped of all humanity, empathy, love. And as the Fearless sweep through the country, forcing the serum on anyone in their path, society becomes a living nightmare.

Cass remembers the night they passed through her village. Her father was Altered. Her mother died soon after. All Cass has left is her little brother – and when Jori is snatched by the Fearless and taken to their hellish lair, Cass must risk everything to get him back.

My Thoughts:

As all of you know, I LOVE POST APOCALYPTIC STORIES!!!

apocalypse photo: The apocalypse Theapolcalypse.jpg

This book was no exception to that rule! I loved the way the author created a different kind of apocalypse story!

Cass is an awesome character. I did have a few heart wrenching moments while reading this book while Cass just kept on muddling through! She was awesome by taking the initiative to care for her younger brother after she had lost her family.

I liked that we had gotten the full story in the beginning of the book and not just flashbacks from the characters. It helps the reader get the whole picture of the story.

The idea of “fearless” is very unique and not that I expect it to happen anytime in the future, it kind of actually could? I liked how the author used the idea of a serum and the fact that it stole the emotions right out of the people whom received it. This is not your typical zombie story!

I was very disappointed in the character of Sol and really did not see that coming! I actually liked him in the beginning and wanted Cass to give him a chance. For awhile, I felt like she was being such a b_itch to him. BUT, in the end, I am glad with all that went down and found myself truly adoring Myo.

The story is told in alternating POV’s which helps the reader get all different perspectives. If you love apocalyptic stories as much as I do, then you should pick this one up! Non stop action from the beginning until the end and I am hoping there may be a sequel soon!!!

The Maze Runner Read Along & Waiting On Wednesday-Illuminae


The Maze Runner Read Along

NightlyReading will be hosting a Read Along of The Maze Runner Series!!

I am so excited since I had seen the movie but have not read the books as of yet. I really want to see how the book compares to the movie which I thought was fantastic!!

We will be starting off with the first book in the series for the month of July, The Maze Runner. The schedule will be as follows:

July 1st- Discuss Chapters 1-13

July 8th-Discuss Chapters 13-26

July 15th-Discuss Chapters 26-39

July 22nd-Discuss Chapters 39-52

July 29th-Discuss Chapters 52-Epilogue

6186357

If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

Remember. Survive. Run.

Please leave a comment to let us know if you will be joining in! The more the merrier!!

Review copies for the Read Along were given by the publisher in exchange of an honest review.

Discussion #1 Chapters 1-13

These first chapters introduce us to Thomas and help us get an understanding of the routine in the glade. I like Thomas, I enjoyed his character in the movie, but I am enjoying him so much more in the book. I like being able to be in his head to know his thoughts and his feelings upon arriving in the maze.

I hate the way the other characters treat the newbies, especially Thomas. They treat them like they are the enemy. I haven’t gotten to much about the new girl in the book but I CANNOT wait to read about Thomas’s thoughts on her;)

I am loving the world that has been created by Mr. Dashner and enjoying getting a feel of life in The Maze. Not sure if I could really live there myself though? I would probably go stir crazy!

Please let me know your thoughts on the first week’s reading. Whom is your favorite character so far? What do you think about the maze itself?

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

To Be Published on October 20, 2015 by Knopf Books For Young Readers

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it’s clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.

Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

My Thoughts

It has been quite awhile since I have read a book by my favorite author, JLA!! I know, I know! I use to try to keep up with all of her new releases but there are SOOOOO many and I have sort of fallen behind! I really need to rectify that ASAP! BUT, having said that, I am glad that I was given the opportunity to join this tour and read this wonderful novella.

I have read the first book in the Wait For You series but have not read any of the others and you did not need to read them to be able to know what is going on with this novella. It absolutely can be read as a stand alone!

I really enjoyed the two main characters and loved the way that Colton just kept reassuring Abby that she was the type of person that he could fall for. I had felt bad for Abby that she had such a low self esteem but could really identify with her!

This was a short and sweet novella! If you are looking for a sweet contemporary which may contain some sexy scenes, then this book is for you!

Excerpt

The look on his face said he wasn’t so sure of that. “He followed you to your house and he hit you with a gun. You could’ve died, Abby. I—”

“Colton,” I tried again. “I’m serious. It wasn’t your fault. Okay? And you didn’t have to come over here to check on me. I’m okay. You’ve… you’ve done enough. You got your brother and Roxy to take me home and—”

“I’ve done enough? Obviously, I haven’t done enough.” His gaze found its way back to mine. “I need to make a couple of things clear. When you left Mona’s last night, you were upset. I get that. You just saw me walk out with Nicole and you left before I could say a single thing to you. Don’t pretend like you didn’t see that.”

“Okay. You, um, seemed busy.” I swallowed, taking a step back. “So that…that’s your ex-fiancée? She’s gorgeous.”

“Yeah, she is.” His brows knitted as he stared down at me. “You know, I was hoping I would hear from you. I figured after Sunday, I was going to leave the ball in your court.”

He had? Had he given that message through man code? I wasn’t good at reading man code.

“Obviously, you need to work through some issues and I was hoping that you would let me help you with that,” he continued. “I’m impatient though. I was planning on calling you last night, but my brother does this thing every week at his place—game night. It’s stupid, but fun. I thought I’d swing by his place for about an hour and then call you.”

I didn’t know what to say about any of that, but I wasn’t going to stand here like I was mute. I had a voice and I was going to use it. “But you were at Mona’s, with Nicole.”

“I was,” he said, a muscle flexing along his jaw. “I met her there on the way to Reece’s. When we broke up, there was a watch that my grandfather had given me before he passed away. One night at her place, I had taken it off and I never found it after that. Nicole finally found it.” Lowering his one hand to the pocket of his denim jeans, he fished out a gold watch that looked like it cost a pretty penny. “She wanted to talk. That’s why we were in Jax’s office.”

I stared at the watch and then watched him place it back in his pocket. Part of me felt like an idiot, but how would anyone really react in this situation?

ARC Review: Deadfall by Anna Carey


Deadfall By Anna Carey (Blackbird #2)deadfall

Published on June 16, 2015 by HarperTeen

256 Pages

ARC given by publisher in exchange of an honest review.

Blurb:

In the compelling sequel to Blackbird, Anna Carey delivers a gritty and adrenaline-filled story of a girl desperate to escape her mysterious and terrifying assailants. Told in second person, this heart-pounding thriller puts the reader in front of the target.

A week ago, you woke up in Los Angeles with no memory of who you are. The only thing you knew: people are trying to kill you. You put your trust in Ben, but he betrayed you and broke your heart. Now you’ve escaped to New York City with a boy named Rafe, who says he remembers you from before. But the two of you are not safe. The same people who are after you are tailing Rafe as well. As the chase heats up, your memory starts to return, but your past cannot save you from the terrifying circumstances of your present, or the fact that one wrong move could end this game forever.

With enemies on every side, and not a reprieve in sight, Deadfall will grab readers and refuse to let go. Perfect for fans of the Maze Runner series and the Legend series.

My Thoughts:

I really loved the first book in this duology and could not wait to get into this one! I devoured it in one sitting and cannot praise it enough! I enjoy Ms. Carey’s writing and also loved her Eve Trilogy but these books are a complete different storyline.

If you enjoy mystery/psychological thrillers, then you would really enjoy this duology! I can tell you that I enjoyed the first book but LOVED the second! The stakes were amped up in the second book and as you start to really unravel the mystery, the more thrilling and heart pounding the read got!

At first, I had forgotten that these books are told in the second person which puts the reader as the main character and it threw me off a little but once I got use to it, I really enjoyed reading this way!

I enjoyed the ending and was glad for the way that the author chose to end her story. I shed quite a few tears because the ending is not completely happy but it kept the reader on their toes not knowing what was going to happen next!

To be published on September 22, 2015 by Katherine Tegan Books

The games continue in New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant’s sequel to Messenger of Fear: a haunting tale for fans of Stephen King that combines fantasy with real-world horror stories.

Mara has learned to punish the wicked as the Messenger’s apprentice. Those who act out of selfishness and greed, and others who become violent because of prejudice and hate, pay the ultimate price. But Mara is constantly reminded that Messengers are serving their own kind of punishment—for every person who is offered justice, they wear a tattoo that symbolizes the heart of the crime. As Mara delves deeper into her harsh reality, she will discover that in spite of all the terror she and Messenger inflict, caring in this world is the hardest part of all.

My Thoughts on Both….

Everyone has heard the stories or read these books by William Shakespeare, they are typical classics that we all love BUT, you have NEVER read them this way! The stories are told all via text and with emojis. They are absolutely adorable and I jumped into them as soon as they arrived. The two are the same story with a modern twist which is very cute:) My teenage daughter had taken them to school and her English Lit teacher had fallen in love with them, so they will have a new home in her classroom next year! (thank you to Random House for these review copies) I enjoyed both the books but YOLO Juliet holds a special place for me, just because Romeo and Juliet is my favorite love story<3

If you love the classics or would like to read a classic and have a hard time getting started, then you would enjoy these two books! They are easy to follow and include a glossary in case you are not up to date on all the new text lingo. They would also be a cute addition to anyone’s shelves and definitely a conversation starter for a coffee table!

This week’s WOW is:

ice like fire

Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch

(Snow Like Ashes #2)

It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and Spring’s king, Angra, disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell.

Meira just wants her people to be safe. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. Theron sees this find as an opportunity—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira fears the danger the chasm poses—the last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders the two on a mission across the kingdoms of Primoria to discover the chasm’s secrets, Meira plans to use the trip to garner support to keep the chasm shut and Winter safe—even if it means clashing with Theron. But can she do so without endangering the people she loves?

Mather just wants to be free. The horrors inflicted on the Winterians hang fresh and raw in Januari—leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell’s growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, he decides to take Winter’s security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken kingdom and protect them from new threats?

As the web of power and deception weaves tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter, but for the world.

I am sooooo excited for this book! I loved the first book in the series and seriously believe that it was one of my favorites of 2014! I am hoping that this book will continue to amaze us!

Review: Control by Lydia Kang


ControlControl by Lydia Kang

Published on December 26, 2013 by Dial Books for Young Readers

393 Pages

Review copy given by publisher in exchange of an honest review.

Blurb:

When a crash kills their father and leaves them orphaned, Zel knows she needs to protect her sister, Dyl. But before Zel has a plan, Dyl is taken by strangers using bizarre sensory weapons, and Zel finds herself in a safe house for teens who aren’t like any she’s ever seen before—teens who shouldn’t even exist. Using broken-down technology, her new friends’ peculiar gifts, and her own grit, Zel must find a way to get her sister back from the kidnappers who think a powerful secret is encoded in Dyl’s DNA.

A spiraling, intense, romantic story set in 2150—in a world of automatic cars, nightclubs with auditory ecstasy drugs, and guys with four arms—this is about the human genetic “mistakes” that society wants to forget, and the way that outcasts can turn out to be heroes.

My Thoughts:

This book was really slow to start and I was seriously wondering whether I was going to finish it or not? About half way in, it got more interesting and then I had a hard time putting it down!

I really enjoyed the book for the most part. The premise was unique to dystopian and it kind of caught me by surprise at how much I was fascinated with the world that Ms. Kang had created.

I did have a bit of a problem with Cy. He was such an a$$!! I still do not understand Zel’s fascination with him, even when he is such an a$$! I just wished that she would have put him in his place from the get go!

I did enjoy the fact that Zel’s Dad had left hidden messages for her by using the hologram images. That was probably my favorite part of the book besides the love of the sister’s that keep them both going.

I do have the sequel ready to go and I am hoping to get through this one while on vacation! I am really interested to see where this story goes!

“Trust no one, I scold myself. Even if they smell good.”

ARC Review: The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon


17901125The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

Published on January 27, 2015 by Bloomsbury

510 Pages

ARC copy received from the publisher in exchange of an honest review.

Blurb:

Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal prison camp of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the survivors are missing and she is the most wanted person in London…

As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on the dreamwalker, the mime-lords and mime-queens of the city’s gangs are invited to a rare meeting of the Unnatural Assembly. Jaxon Hall and his Seven Seals prepare to take centre stage, but there are bitter fault lines running through the clairvoyant community and dark secrets around every corner. Then the Rephaim begin crawling out from the shadows. But where is Warden? Paige must keep moving, from Seven Dials to Grub Street to the secret catacombs of Camden, until the fate of the underworld can be decided.

My Thoughts:

Okay, here goes! I loved the first book in this series, The Bone Season. I could not put that book down and I could not wait for this book to arrive!!! I finally got it in my hot little hands and I was so excited! Unfortunately, this book just fell flat and I have not finished it.

I kept trying and trying to finish. I had put it down several times only to pick it back up, read a chapter or two and then get bored and put it back down again. I have actually had this book since February and really wanted to finish but just cannot bring myself to pick it back up.

I was really bored with this installment and it really felt like a “filler” second book in a trilogy. I missed the romance and the tension from the first book. I may pick it back up at some point because I would really like to see where this series is going since I loved the first book so much. We shall see?

If you have read this book, please let me know what you had thought??

“You told me once that freedom was my right.” I held his gaze. “Maybe you should do something with it.”
