Summary from Goodreads:

“Knowing the outcome doesn’t always make a choice easier . . .

Addison Coleman’s life is one big “What if?” As a Searcher, whenever Addie is faced with a choice, she can look into the future and see both outcomes. It’s the ultimate insurance plan against disaster. Or so she thought. When Addie’s parents ambush her with the news of their divorce, she has to pick who she wants to live with—her father, who is leaving the paranormal compound to live among the “Norms,” or her mother, who is staying in the life Addie has always known. Addie loves her life just as it is, so her answer should be easy. One Search six weeks into the future proves it’s not.

In one potential future, Addie is adjusting to life outside the Compound as the new girl in a Norm high school where she meets Trevor, a cute, sensitive artist who understands her. In the other path, Addie is being pursued by the hottest guy in school—but she never wanted to be a quarterback’s girlfriend. When Addie’s father is asked to consult on a murder in the Compound, she’s unwittingly drawn into a dangerous game that threatens everything she holds dear. With love and loss in both lives, it all comes down to which reality she’s willing to live through . . . and who she can’t live without.”

 

MY THOUGHTS.

 

Unique. Interesting. Gripping. Superb!

OMG! I love this book! I just love it! I wish there’s more! I expected a lot and I’m happy that it didn’t fail me!
The best thing about this one is it’s uniqueness, it’s different from other paranormal/sci-fi books. Addie is a Searcher, a clairvoyant, she Searches and she can look into the future and see the outcome. It find it very unique that the author picked that kind of ability for a heroine. At first, I thought it was a lame power, especially the fact that it only works for her. But it’s an advantage when it comes to choices, right?

Each chapter never fails to surprise me. She’s searching into two paths, one if she agrees to stay with her dad and the other is to stay with her mom. Somehow, events are interrelated, characters seem to be amusing. Duke is the guy if she picks to stay with her mom, that means she also stays in the compound along with the other people with abilities. He’s a quarterback, star player, a hotlicious guy. On her dad side, Trevor is the guy. He’s a silent-type, he reads comics and he draws, he used to be the star player too before he got injured. I was almost nearing the end of the book when I realized who’s her real love interest. I was so confused at first, Duke is such a hottie, you know, every one’s dream boyfriend. Trevor is different, he’s like the one you’ll choose to spend your life with. Ok, so yeah, I’m Team Trevor on this one. *squeals* *fan-girling*

I love this book and it such a pain to wait for the second book next year! I want to grab the whole series now!

Summary from Goodreads:

“Lost and alone…down the rabbit hole.

Years have passed since Alice lost her mother to cancer, but time hasn’t quite healed the wound. Alice copes the best she can by writing her music, losing herself in her love for her boyfriend, and distancing herself from her father and his new wife.

But when a deadly snowstorm traps Alice with her stepmother and newborn half sister, she’ll face issues she’s been avoiding for too long. As Alice looks to the heavens for guidance, she discovers something wonderful.

Perhaps she’s not so alone after all….”

MY THOUGHTS.

 

Absolutely beautiful..

Lisa Schroeder is such an amazing author. All of her works are amazing and beautiful. This is the third book I’ve read from her and nothing has disappointed me so far. I love her and all her books. Her writing style captures the raw emotions and hearts of everyone.

This book deals with family, forgiveness, survival and acceptance. Alice copes up with her life at home, with his father, stepmother and their newborn baby, Ivy. So I guess, you know what this is all about. Because of an unexpected accident, their lives have changed.

I love how the book showed the relationship of mother and daughter in different ways.

“Honey, no matter where you are, I’m with you.
When the breeze brushes your cheek, that’s me.
When the stars sparkle and shine, that’s me.
When the tulips bloom in the spring, that’s me.”

The little things.

She’s there,
in the little things.”

I love how the book demonstrated young love, respect and inspiration.

“He is
better than warm fall colors
better than beautiful music
better than doughnuts and coffee.”

I love how the book made me appreciate more everyone that I love and who loves me too.

“Friends will keep us happy.
Our family keeps us warm.
We’ll party through the good times
and hold tight through the storms.”

5 BEAUTIFUL STARS!

Summary from Goodreads:

“Mackenzie “Max” Miller has a problem. Her parents have arrived in town for a surprise visit, and if they see her dyed hair, tattoos, and piercings, they just might disown her. Even worse, they’re expecting to meet a nice, wholesome boyfriend, not a guy named Mace who has a neck tattoo and plays in a band. All her lies are about to come crashing down around her, but then she meets Cade.

Cade moved to Philadelphia to act and to leave his problems behind in Texas. So far though, he’s kept the problems and had very little opportunity to take the stage. When Max approaches him in a coffee shop with a crazy request to pretend to be her boyfriend, he agrees to play the part. But when Cade plays the role a little too well, they’re forced to keep the ruse going. And the more they fake the relationship, the more real it begins to feel.”

 

MY THOUGHTS.

 

OMG! Cade Winston, “My twenty-four-hour, pretend-we-met-in-a-library, mom-hugging, golden-boy-boyfriend!”
I love you so much and I want to take you home!!! Can I? Please?!

The book started with Cade’s POV and just like that, I was hooked, addicted, and I couldn’t put it down. For almost 3 hours, I glued myself reading it. This is way so much better than Losing It, this one blew me away. I remember I already fell in love with Cade from the first book, I even wrote it down in my review. But knowing him more in his own story had made me head over heels in love with him. He made me forget all my other book boyfriends. And for that, I can really say that he’s exceptional, he topped my list. I know, I know, I’m still drooling and I can’t stop myself from talking about him, I can’t help it. I’m sure that anyone can understand what I’m feeling right now once they’ve read the book. I promise, I’m not exaggerating. Forgive me, I just fell in love. LOL! 😉

Anyway, I also like the heroine, Mackenzie or Max, even though I’m so jealous right now. She’s different from other heroines, she’s bad ass, a rocker, a musician, a happy-go-lucky girl. She smokes, she dances, she sings, she dates a lot, she has baggages and tattoos. I admit I don’t like her for Cade because he’s too good for her. He’s a good guy, a gentleman, an excellent student. He’s funny, hot, gorgeous and way too perfect! But I learned to understand Max along the way, she has a story to tell, a family-related matter. And I love how the book emphasized about letting go and when not to let go, to learn how to be brave, to fight, and to move forward..

My favorite lines from Cade:
“Trust me. This was much better than the alternative. I’m exactly where I want to be.” He glanced down at me and gave me a half-smile.”

“You don’t know how much I’ve thought about this tattoo. I want to memorize it so that every time I close my eyes I can see the way it accentuates your body.”

“I know that you make me laugh, and that I love hearing your voice, especially when you sing. I know that I haven’t stopped thinking about you since the day you sat down beside me at that coffee shop.”

I love you Cade Winston!

And I love the author for creating him!

I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves romance… Heck, I just recommend it to all!

5 golden stars!!!

Summary from Goodreads:

EARTH. FIRE. AIR. WATER.

He could feel flames coming through the floor, looking for him. Sparks and ash rained down. He wasn’t going to make it. He was going to fail. Again. Then a hand closed over his wrist and pulled, hard.

Gabriel Merrick plays with fire. Literally. Sometimes he can even control it. And sometimes he can’t. So when an arsonist wreaks havoc on his town all the signs point to Gabriel.

Layne is strangely drawn to him. Layne understands family problems, and she understands secrets. She has a few of her own.

Gabriel can’t let Layne know that the danger that’s right at his heels. But there are some risks he can’t help taking.

THE FUSE IS LIT…”

 

MY THOUGHTS.

 

I love Gabriel!!!

Yay, another book boyfriend for me!
He is sooo hot, literally hot! Because he controls fire!
He may seem so hot tempered, sometimes a jerk, but he’s truly a good guy. He doesn’t like Math, he loves sports, he saves lives, he loves his family, and he’s perfect! LOL!
And I love the fact that he fell in love with an extraordinary girl, Layne. I like her, she’s shy, kind and smart, a nerd (like me, sort of), and a pretty girl (of course, definitely like me, haha!). Although everyone treats her unkindly, Gabe is always around to defend her. And I really like her kind soul, even if she has tough parents – a mom who wants her to be perfect and a strict lawyer dad. Gabe and Layne are such a cute couple.
I think this is my most favorite from the series so far. 🙂

I’m now a fan of this series! I’m excited to read Hunter’s story, but I’m also nervous about it. I hope it’ll be as good as the others. 😉

5 sparkling Stars! 😉

Summary from Goodreads:

“Marcus Hardy had hoped to enjoy a year away at college while he put the summer he’d rather forget behind him. But instead, he’s jerked right back to the coastal town of Sea Breeze, Alabama due to a family crisis. His dear ol’ dad found himself a girlfriend only a few years older than Marcus. So now his sister needs help dealing with their mother who is mentally falling apart. The only bright spot to returning is the fascinating red head who sleeps over several times a week. The problem is she’s sleeping in bed with his new roommate, Cage York. 

Willow “Low” Foster needs a place to live. Running to Cage’s apartment every time her sister kicks her out isn’t exactly a long term solution. Juggling her courses at the local community college and a part time job doesn’t produce excess income. But Cage has a new roommate and suddenly sleeping over at her best friend’s apartment isn’t such a bad thing. Not when she gets to see those sexy green eyes of Marcus Hardy’s twinkle when he smiles at her like he wants her there. 
Even though Cage seems a little territorial where Low is concerned, Marcus finds time to spend with Low without upsetting his roommate. Cage may use his small college baseball star persona to sleep with every hot female in his path but he’s still under the disillusion that when he’s through sowing his wild oats, he’s going to marry Low. Marcus intends to change that assumption for both Cage and Low. Until his carefully laid plans come crashing down with a revelation he never expected. He’ll have to choose between Low or his family. Because once the truth comes out…. there’s no other choice.”

 

MY THOUGHTS.

 

Oh my, I love you Marcus!!! Wholeheartedly!

When I read the first pages, I was hooked right away! I didn’t remember that he’s Marcus, from the first book, Breathe. I fell in love with him there, but I think I love him more in this book. Well, it’s his own story! I love how the romance developed, such as the first encounter in the very beginning and their undeniable attraction with each other. Oh, how I love good guys, and Marcus is the best example. *swoons*

The first half of the book is really great! I always expect that from Abbi Glines. The second half is with a lot of conflicts. Though this book is very predictable, I can’t help but love it because of Marcus. He’s a good person, he’s the perfect son to her mom, a good brother to Amanda, a sweet guy to Low. And he’s a perfect gentleman! He also cooks for her. My favorite part is when he gave Low three different drinks and she asked why, and he said he said he’s not sure what she’d want. That’s very sweet of him, taking care of her and making her happy. And I like that Low appreciates him in every little things that he does.

My favorite line from Marcus:

“Listen to me. I’m in love with you. Mad crazy in love with you. I’m not going anywhere. Ever. You can’t get rid of me.”

My Top 5 Favorite Movies this year!

2012 favorite movies

Yes, I do love watching movies!!! I admit I’ve watched less movies this year, but I promise that I’ll be watching the ones I missed, especially Brave, Wrath of the Titans, This Means War, and many more. Today, I’d like to share with all of you my TOP 5 FAVORITE MOVIES the year 2012! So why only 5? Well, this post will be longer if I shared my top 10, right? LOL! Before anything else, I hope you don’t judge me that much on my picks, but I rate the movies by how much I enjoyed it, not by the casting, script, director, actors, or any such movie-related techniques. I love them because I enjoyed watching them, I had a good laugh or if I cried a bunch. Anyway, here they are:

1. THE HUNGER GAMES

the_hunger_games_photos_620x350

Summary from IMDB:

“Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister’s place in the Hunger Games, a televised fight to the death in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to compete.”

My thoughts.

Of course, first on the list is my favorite book of all time, The Hunger Games. I love it, and I cried on how much it was beautifully made into movie. For me, it was perfect! Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson have portrayed their roles so well. I can’t wait for Catching Fire and see them all over again! 🙂

2. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

Amazing_Spider-Man_The_Movie_Vol_1_1

Summary from IMDB:

“Peter Parker finds a clue that might help him understand why his parents disappeared when he was young. His path puts him on a collision course with Dr. Curt Connors, his father’s former partner.”

My thoughts.

At first, I was like “A Spiderman movie?!! Again???!!!”. But when I saw that it’s a different version, I got very excited to see it. And it never failed me in any way. I laughed most of the time! And I felt a connection with Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, I began to like him along the way. Did I tell you that I have this crush on Emma Stone? LOL! She’s so pretty, though I like her much better with red hair. 🙂

3. HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA

hotel-transylvania-3d-1680x1050-660x412

Summary from IMDB:

“Dracula, who operates a high-end resort away from the human world, goes into overprotective mode when a boy discovers the resort and falls for the count’s teen-aged daughter.”

My thoughts.

This movie is definitely a huge surprise to me! My boyfriend wanted to watch it even though he’s not a movie addict like me. I had fun watching it, it was so funny, I couldn’t stop myself from laughing so hard! The characters are so cool, especially Dracula, Jonathan and Mavis. But I love every one of them! And the best part for me is the ending where they sang a cute song called “Zing”. If you’ve watched the movie, I’m sure you know the song that I’m talking about. 🙂

4.  JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND

journey-to-the-center-of-the-earth-2-WIDE

Summary from IMDB:

“Sean Anderson partners with his mom’s husband on a mission to find his grandfather, who is thought to be missing on a mythical island.”

My thoughts.

I’ve watched the first movie “Journey to the Center of the Earth” and that’s where I began to love Josh Hutcherson. Well, let’s admit it, he was really cute as a child. LOL! I’ve watched it in 3D and they definitely did a good job. I love the adventure and I enjoyed the journey. 🙂

5. RISE OF THE GUARDIANS

rise_guardians_06

Summary from IMDB:

“When the evil spirit Pitch launches an assault on Earth, the Immortal Guardians team up to protect the innocence of children all around the world.”

My thoughts.

This movie is still very fresh in my mind because I just watched it last Saturday with one of my close friends. We wanted to see the 3D version, but it wasn’t available. Anyway, the characters are so lovable! Jack Frost is so amazing! And he’s cute too! *giggles*. My favorite is the SandMan, I want to hug him if he’s real! LOL! This movie brought out the child in me, it got me thinking if I believed them when I was a child. I know the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy, and of course Santa, and a little bit about SandMan. Yes, I’m not familiar with Jack Frost, because I’m living in a tropical country and we don’t have snow.  I enjoyed it so much, and I think every kid did too. 🙂

******

That’s all! Of course, I also do love THE AVENGERS, but it disappointed me in such a way I didn’t expect, or maybe it was over rated. I’m not sure, but I saddened me because they made fun of Loki. I also enjoyed Underworld Awakening, but not much. 😉

How about you, what are the movies you enjoyed this year? 😉

Summary from Goodreads:

“When Carlos Fuentes returns to America after living in Mexico for a year, he doesn’t want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him at a high school in Colorado. Carlos likes living his life on the edge and wants to carve his own path—just like Alex did. Then he meets Kiara Westford. She doesn’t talk much and is completely intimidated by Carlos’ wild ways. As they get to know one another, Carlos assumes Kiara thinks she’s too good for him, and refuses to admit that she might be getting to him. But he soon realizes that being himself is exactly what Kiara needs right now.”

 

 

 

MY THOUGHTS.

 

ANOTHER AMAZING BOOK FROM SIMONE ELKELES!!! I found another book boyfriend, definitely swoon worthy! Carlos, you got me breaking the rules! LOL!

I’m in love again! And I’m wondering if it’s okay to have two brothers for myself? LOL! I love Alex from Perfect Chemistry, and I admit it took me a long time to read the sequel because I’m too in love with him. I didn’t expect that they’ll have the same effect on me. Can I marry both and take them home??? LOL!

I love this book, it rocked my world, every chapter made me want for more. I think this is funnier and lighter than the first. The characters are so cool! At first, Carlos kind of annoyed me, it felt like he’s too bad to everyone. But he gradually changed and he’s like the sweetest bad boy I’ve ever met. LOL! And let’s admit it, he’s too hot! Kiara, on the other hand, is such a good girl with a lot of insecurities and imperfections, but those things really made her so likable. There are so many things to like about her, so I’m very happy that she gets to have Carlos. I understand all her qualities that made him fall hopelessly in love with her. I also like Tuck, Kiara’s gay best friend, he’s too funny! Her family is so cool, especially her dad, the professor, I didn’t expect that he’ll play a big role here. And of course, I love it because Alex is in it, along with his very lucky girlfriend, Brittany!

I think you can guess my favorite part from the book. Yes, that part, the scene from that book cover. *sigh*
Here are my favorite lines from Carlos:
“Tonight was… well, it was perfect for me too. You’ve turned my world upside down. I’ve fallen in love with you, chica, and it scares the fuckin’ shit outta me. I’ve been shakin’ all night, because I knew it.I’ve tried to deny it, to make you think I wanted you as a fake girlfriend, but that was a lie.”

“I’m in deep shit, cause I think I’d like nothing better than to wake up with her every morning.”

Good For You by Tammara Webber: A book review

Rating: 5/5 stars

 

Summary from Goodreads:

“Reid Alexander’s life is an open book. His Hollywood celebrity means that everything he does plays out in the public eye. Every relationship, every error in judgment is analyzed by strangers. His latest mistake totaled his car, destroyed a house and landed him in the hospital. Now his PR team is working overtime to salvage his image. One thing is clear—this is one predicament he won’t escape without paying for it.

Dori Cantrell is a genuine humanitarian—the outward opposite of everything Reid is about. When his DUI plea bargain lands him under her community service supervision, she proves unimpressed with his status and indifferent to his proximity, and he soon wants nothing more than to knock her off of her pedestal and prove she’s human.

Counting the days until his month of service is over, Dori struggles to ignore his wicked magnetic pull while shocking him with her ability to see past his celebrity and challenging him to see his own wasted potential. But Dori has secrets of her own, safely locked away until one night turns her entire world upside down. Suddenly their only hope for connection and redemption hinges on one choice: whether or not to have faith in each other.”

 

MY THOUGHTS.

 

I really love this book and I didn’t expect it to be this good.
I admit it took me a long time to finally read it since I hated Reid in the first and second book! He’s bad and a jerk most of the time.
But I’m so glad I decided to read it, it made me love Reid and I’m happy that I gave him a second chance. It’s really true, every bad person really deserves a second chance. 🙂

I liked Doris, I can say that she’s perfect for Reid. They are very different from each other, having the opposite lives. Doris has this good girl image, a pastor’s daughter, a social worker student, a part time teacher in a vacation bible school. Yes, she attends church every Sunday. While Reid is definitely an opposite of her, he’s a handsome celebrity, with a workaholic dad and alcoholic mom, he parties every night, goes with different girls, and the usual guy who drinks and drive. He had an accident and destroyed a house, then he volunteered in a community service and later on handled by Doris. And the rest of the story is about how they clicked together, even though they used to argue a lot since they have different attitudes and views. I liked how the romance grew, their undeniable attraction with each other, and their friendship turned to love. I like the fact that Reid changed and became a better person because of her. Also he understand everything about her.

I love love love this book, it got me to tears while reading it, and has brought up many emotions in me. I love how Tammara Webber weaves a beautiful story but a realistic one, where everyone can relate to. 😉

The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan: A book review

Title: The Mark of Athena

Author: Rick Riordan

Started Date: October 2, 2012

Finished Date: October 6, 2012

Rating: 5/5 stars

 

Summary from Goodreads:

Annabeth is terrified. Just when she’s about to be reunited with Percy—after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera—it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. As Annabeth and her friends Jason, Piper, and Leo fly in on the Argo II, she can’t blame the Roman demigods for thinking the ship is a Greek weapon. With its steaming bronze dragon masthead, Leo’s fantastical creation doesn’t appear friendly. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans that the visitors from Camp Half-Blood are coming in peace.And that’s only one of her worries. In her pocket Annabeth carries a gift from her mother that came with an unnerving demand: Follow the Mark of Athena. Avenge me. Annabeth already feels weighed down by the prophecy that will send seven demigods on a quest to find—and close— the Doors of Death. What more does Athena want from her?

Annabeth’s biggest fear, though, is that Percy might have changed. What if he’s now attached to Roman ways? Does he still need his old friends? As the daughter of the goddess of war and wisdom, Annabeth knows she was born to be a leader, but never again does she want to be without Seaweed Brain by her side.

Narrated by four different demigods, The Mark of Athena is an unforgettable journey across land and sea to Rome, where important discoveries, surprising sacrifices, and unspeakable horrors await. Climb aboard the Argo II, if you dare. . . .”

 

MY THOUGHTS.

 

WOW! A huge applause for Rick Riordan for another great book and a job well done! And another book from him that will definitely fall in my favorites shelf which is kind of too predictable because ALL of his books are indeed in my favorites shelf. I love love love this book! Full of awesomeness!! Action-packed adventure and one hell of a ride!

I was too excited with this book that I actually bought it on it’s first day of release last Tuesday, October 2. I love the amazing cover and the smell of the book while I’m flipping the pages. LOL! The characters are on full blast, all seven of them, Percy, Annabeth, Jason, Piper, Frank, Hazel and Leo. (I will not go through much of the details because I might spoil some.) They are all funny, I remember laughing so hard I felt like I’m going crazy because I’m all alone in my room reading. LOL! My most favorite character here is Leo, I think he’s so amazing here and he really played a huge part in the quest next to Annabeth. (Team Leo for the win!) I like his story with Hazel and it really surprised me, and I find it too “cute” to handle. LOL! I guess I now know why he’s the seventh wheel, but I’ll keep it to myself for the mean time. As for Annabeth, I expected that there will be a lot from her based on the cover and the title. But I didn’t know it was that big! Gee, I will not say anything, go figure it out! 😉

Anyway, I’m happy that there are a lot of exciting events with the series, so many surprises in every chapter, and also so many things to look forward to. I like the fact that Riordan put a little romance in it. I love the three love teams, Percy and Annabeth deserve to be with each other. Jason and Piper are good together (Piper should never doubt Jason’s affection to her, she’s a daughter of Aphrodite, she should be confident with love.) And the extraordinary love triangle – Leo, Frank and Hazel for the win!!!

I LOVE THIS SERIES! CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT, THE HOUSE OF HADES! 😉

“He’s b-a-a-ack Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sade Kane can’t seem to keep Apophis, the chaos snake, down. Now Apophis is threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness, and the Kanes are faced with the impossible task of having to destroy him once and for all. Unfortunately, the magicians of the House of Life are on the brink of civil war, the gods are divided, and the young initiates of Brooklyn House stand almost alone against the forces of chaos. The Kanes’ only hope is an ancient spell that might turn the serpent’s own shadow into a weapon, but the magic has been lost for a millennia. To find the answer they need, the Kanes must rely on the murderous ghost of a powerful magician who might be able to lead them to the serpent’s shadow . . . or might lead them to their deaths in the depths of the underworld. Nothing less than the mortal world is at stake when the Kane family fulfills its destiny in this thrilling conclusion to the Kane Chronicles.”

 

MY THOUGHTS.

 

5 stars again! Again and again! A perfect book to end the series!

A massive applause for Rick Riordan for another job well done!
This book is SO amazing! Riordan is such a brilliant author!
I love it so much my heart could burst!

So ok, there are so many things I like about this book! I think of the same old reasons with the rest of Riordan’s books, I love them for a whole lot of reasons a middle grade kid can do. I laugh a lot! I grabbed this thinking that it would cheer me up, and it never failed me. The characters are very funny, especially the two heroes, Sadie and Carter. They are perfect role models for siblings who take care of each other even though they used to fight a lot with their differences. Carter is now a confident teen who faced his destiny. Sadie is still annoyingly talkative, but she’s got a lot of sense of humor, and that’s what I like about her! And I also love her cute romance with Walt and Anubis, she’s confused in the right way. And my most favorite character is back, BES, and I’m so happy!!!! Bes and Tawaret’s love team for the win! LOL! Before I forget, I have a favorite new character here, and that’s Hapi, the god of Nile. If you have also read it, I’m sure you know why I’m fond of him. LOL!

Anyway, I love the ride of adventure that I took while reading this book, and I’m looking forward with more, especially the spin off series, hopefully! 😉
