Waiting on Wednesday (#93)

You know the story. This is a meme created by Breaking the Spine and every week we pick books we're waiting for. Here are our picks for this week.

Glass's pick:

 When Hannah Nichols last saw Marco D’Alessandro, five long years ago, he broke her heart. The bad boy with a hidden sweet side was the only guy Hannah ever loved—and the only man she’s ever been with. After one intense night of giving into temptation, Marco took off, leaving Scotland and Hannah behind. Shattered by the consequences of their night together, Hannah has never truly moved on.

Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco’s life, something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they’re meant to be together.…

But just when Marco thinks they’re committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she’s been hiding from him, a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again…

Expected publication date: June 3rd, 2014.

Tanja's pick:

Born and raised in the Midwest, Jersey Cameron knows all about tornadoes. Or so she thinks. When her town is devastated by a twister, Jersey survives -- but loses her mother, her young sister, and her home. As she struggles to overcome her grief, she's sent to live with her only surviving relatives: first her biological father, then her estranged grandparents.

In an unfamiliar place, Jersey faces a reality she's never considered before -- one in which her mother wasn't perfect, and neither were her grandparents, but they all loved her just the same. Together, they create a new definition of family. And that's something no tornado can touch.

Expected publication date: May 6th, 2014.

We'd love to see your picks so feel free to link them up.

ARC Review - Tease by Amanda Maciel

Connect with the author:
Publication date: April 29th, 2014

My rating: 4 stars

Book summary:

"Emma Putnam is dead, and it's all Sara Wharton's fault.

At least, that's what everyone seems to think. Sara, along with her best friend and three other classmates, has been criminally charged for the bullying and harassment that led to Emma's shocking suicide. Now Sara is the one who's ostracized, already guilty according to her peers, the community, and the media.

During the summer before her senior year, in between meetings with lawyers and a court-recommended therapist, Sara is forced to reflect on the events that brought her to this moment—and ultimately consider her role in an undeniable tragedy. And she'll have to find a way to move forward, even when it feels like her own life is over.

In this powerful debut novel inspired by real-life events, Amanda Maciel weaves a narrative of high school life as complex and heartbreaking as it is familiar: a story of everyday jealousies and resentments, misunderstandings and desires. Tease is a thought-provoking must-read that will haunt readers long after the last page."

      You have never read a book like this one. I won't lie and tell you how amazing this book is, that you'll feel as if you just have to read it in one sitting and that you will love a main character. But it is a brilliant book. Amanda Maciel speaks up about the things we'd rather push under the mat and not think about them and she does all that from unexpected point of view. That is the reason why Tease is not an easy book to read.

      We need more books like this. If you read only to escape from reality, to swoon over fictional romances and not think about anything relevant for few hours, Tease won't give you that. Told form the perspective of Sara, popular high school student and one of the bullies, this tale will make you think and ask yourself a lot of questions. It might even make you feel really uncomfortable, upset or mad. Few will recognize themselves in the characters, but they won't like that feeling at all. That's why they will say how bad this book is, give it a low rating or ignore it completely because we don't like to admit that we are bad persons. Or bullies. Even if we didn't realize how wrong some of our actions were.

      No one is perfect. All the characters in this novel are deeply flawed, even Emma, the girl who was bullied. No one is left blameless - parents, kids, teachers, school head master, family... What I liked the most is that author is giving you a lot of facts and snippets about past and present, but not once she makes you pick sides intentionally - she doesn't push you or make obvious remarks about what is right or wrong. Show, don't tell at its best.

      Who should read this book? There are no exceptions with this one. Everyone. I really hope it will be translated on a lot of languages, including mine because I plan to make all of my kids read it.

Happy reading,

Falling Under (Falling, #3) by Jasinda Wilder

Buy the book:
Connect with the author:

My rating: 2 stars

Book summary:

"My name is Colton Calloway. You've heard part of my story, but it turns out there's more. My little girl, Kylie, is all grown up. Seventeen, beautiful, and talented, just like her mother. And just like Nell, my daughter seems to have fallen for a bad boy, one with a lot of darkness and a lot of secrets.

*  *  *

You thought you knew the whole story. You thought it was over. Happily ever after for everyone.

You were wrong.

My name is Oz Hyde, and you’ve never met me. I’m part of the story, too, but I’m an aside, a quick line or two you’d all but forgotten about. Well guess what? I’ve got my own story to tell."

      Third book in Falling series. I have love/hate relationship with this Falling series. To be perfectly honest I don't even know why I read them. Maybe it's because of Purple form Way Too Hot Books who surprised me with her high rating for the first novel, Falling Into You (you can read her review here).Or because I find out about amazing musicians like Dallas Green and heartbreaking songs like The Girl. Or I'm masochist and I like to torture myself.

      So much expectations... I was really curious to see what did Jasinda Wilder cooked up in the Falling Under, mostly because it's the story about Colton and Nell's daughter and book summary isn't revealing almost anything. Epic fail in my judgement. It turned out to be more or less same as the first novel - music, good girl/bad boy, record deal and a lot of drama.

      On the plus side... you find out about few great songs, but putting a music background in the almost every scene is over the top. Couple of swoonish moments.

       What completely ruined it for me? Last third of the book - there is so much drama that I felt like I was watching Esmeralda or Suleiman the Magnificent.

      Final word? If you usually aren't a fan of new adult romance novels, skip it. If you love soap operas, you'll like it.

Happy reading,

ARC Review: Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnelly

Pre-order the book

Book summary: 
Deep in the ocean, in a world not so different from our own, live the merpeople. Their communities are spread throughout the oceans, seas, and freshwaters all over the globe.
When Serafina, a mermaid of the Mediterranean Sea, awakens on the morning of her betrothal, her biggest worry should be winning the love of handsome Prince Mahdi. And yet Sera finds herself haunted by strange dreams that foretell the return of an ancient evil. Her dark premonitions are confirmed when an assassin's arrow poisons Sera's mother. Now, Serafina must embark on a quest to find the assassin's master and prevent a war between the Mer nations. Led only by her shadowy dreams, Sera searches for five other mermaid heroines who are scattered across the six seas. Together, they will form an unbreakable bond of sisterhood and uncover a conspiracy that threatens their world's very existence.
          With tons of paranormal creatures in YA lit and me enjoying more or less all of them it's really crazy that I haven't enjoyed a good mermaid book ever since The Little Mermaid and I think and I was like five then. Somehow they are always missing something or mermaids in general annoy me with all the singing and beauty show. Anyhow I hoped that Deep Blue will be something that will connect me with this world, but sadly it did not.

           We are in depths of Mediterranean Sea, setting yet familiar and still so strange to me. Serafina is preparing for a big day in her life. It's time for her betrothal and it means her destiny and everything she is preparing for is coming to life. She will once inherit the kingdom and rule and there is also her future husband Prince Mahid, who is not the same he used to be. But night before, she has a weird dream which seemed so real and like with Shakespeare dreams are never good omens so they are not here either. Serafina discovers that not only political intrigues are what threatens people of the sea but something much bigger and stronger.

          What impressed me the most in this book is world-building which was really detailed and even at time confusing as the author really used the imagination and created not only world but also slang to make it even more real. But sadly her characters aren't of that sort. Serafina is typical YA character who is at the same time strong and brave and impulsive and a drama queen. But my bigger problem here was Sera's best friend Neela who is one of those flat characters and I knew her reactions before I even read them and the problem is I don't like that silly type of people nor characters. Other thing is lack of romance in this book which really bothered me.

        All in all, I don't think this was the right Jennifer Donnelly's book to start with as I have heard amazing things about her other books but I guess mermaid books and I aren't meant to be.

Rating: 3 stars.

Until the next time,

Blog tour: The Wizard's Promise by Cassandra Rose Clarke

Hello all. I have a blog tour for you today. I'm sure you've heard of this author and her books and I really hope you'll enjoy the review and also check out Cassandra's top ten fantasy books list. 
Pre-order the book at 

Book summary: 
All Hanna Euli wants is to become a proper witch – but unfortunately, she’s stuck as an apprentice to a grumpy fisherman. When their boat gets caught up in a mysterious storm and blown wildly off course, Hanna finds herself further away from home than she’s ever been before.
As she tries to get back, she learns there may be more to her apprentice master than she realized, especially when a mysterious, beautiful, and very non-human boy begins following her through the ocean, claiming that he needs Hanna’s help.
           The Assassin's Curse is one of those series I have been seeing around for years but I haven't gotten to read it just yet. So when I got the opportunity to be part of this tour I was over the moon. Now I see that I should have read the first series first but well I never do things in order anyway.

           Here we meet Hanna, a young girls who has heard such amazing adventurous stories from her mother and adventures are all she dreams of while living in the small village and being trained by the wizard who doesn't even bother to show her any tricks. So when they set of for a relatively short journey she couldn't believe that a mysterious storm would blown them far away from everything the is used to. Once in unfamiliar land and with unfamiliar people she must find a way to go back on her own. On on the North the forces are much stronger than she dreamed of and her destiny might be different from what she thought.

        Firstly Hanna is a girl I really liked. Her ability to find a way and fight on her own are something I highly admired. I can only assume that she got that from the other girl she got name from. Now we go back to The Assassin's Curse which I recommend you read first as this whole world would be more clear and you will easily travel from one place to another. But then again it'd not be the end of the world if you don't as this whole world will be more magical and unpredictable as it was for me. In some way, you win and lose something either way.

       References for the previous series were something that didn't bother me. I had to put together the pieces of the map in my had like it was a puzzle and I enjoyed it. But other thing that bothered me is that some parts of this book were rather slow. Especially at the start which was the slowest part, till the mysterious storm hit which changed the course of the storytelling. I enjoyed vivid pictures and the mystery that surrounded the Mist.
       All in all, enjoyable read and I will be waiting to read the sequel (probably I will read The Assassin's Curse in the meantime).

Rating: 4 stars.

Top Ten Fantasy Books! 
One Hundred Years of Solitude, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez: As a general rule, I tend to prefer fantasy that leans more toward magical realism than classic epic fantasies. This book is to magical realism what Lord of the Rings is to those epic fantasies, and it’s one of my favorite novels of all time. I love the way the magical elements are interwoven into the story and its themes. I love the blurring of time and the fact that this book played with the idea that time is a flat circle long before True Detective. The writing is gorgeous and the imagery stays with me long after I put the book down. Perfection.
The Martian Chronicles, by Ray Bradbury: This book always gets classified as science fiction because Mars, but I think its heart really lies with fantasy—in particular, the magical realist-tinged fantasy I’m so fond of. The book takes a lot of typical Mars tropes and reworks them to feel like something out of a dream: the Martians fade away to ghosts, the rockets taking people up to Mars burn so hot they create a global summer, and terraforming involves an entire forest of trees growing overnight.
The Harry Potter series, by JK Rowling: It’s impossible to name favorite fantasy novels without listing series (and I’ve got a couple in this list). I don’t think the Harry Potter series is perfect, but it occupies a space in my mind that’s impossible to ignore. One of the strengths of the book is the fabulous, slightly grotesque nature of the characters, and those characters are what ultimately drew me in. There are gaps in the worldbuilding, but that just makes the book all the more fun to discuss and argue about. Plus, who hasn’t sat around thinking about which House they’d be sorted into?
A Song of Ice and Fire series, by George R. R. Martin: There’s so much going on in these books. On one hand, they are a pitch-perfect deconstruction of epic fantasy tropes and character archetypes. The classic fantasy heroes die, the popular “underdog” characters become unlikeable sociopaths, and the weak characters slowly prove their strength. On the other hand, the books as a whole are basically a trashy soap opera. I mean, it is literally both of these things at once. Amazing.
The Sandman series, by Neil Gaiman: I read the entire series in college and it completely blew my mind. I mean, it’s a revival of a freaking superhero comic from the Seventies! And yet Gaiman manages to take that teeny-tiny germ of an idea and blossom it out into this incredibly complex, intricate world. The result is a fantasy series that is completely imbued with philosophy and late Eighties counterculture. It was, at the time, unlike anything I had ever read before.
Howl’s Moving Castle, by Diana Wynne Jones: I love this book. Is there anything else to say besides that? I love the characters, I love the romance—which you hardly even realize is a romance until the very end—and I love the worldbuilding. There is literally nothing else to say other than, “I love this book.”
His Dark Materials series, by Philip Pullman: I love how this is a fantasy series that basically ignores every fantasy trope in existence, opting instead to retell Paradise Lost with a happy ending. It gets called the anti-Narnia a lot, but I don’t think that’s really fair to either series, since it’s reducing them down to their politics. I have a pretty low tolerance for didacticism in fiction, and yet I love His Dark Materials, not simply because of the message but because of the characters, their relationships, and the beautiful strangeness of the world the book creates.
Practical Magic, by Alice Hoffman: Alice Hoffman is one of my favorite authors, and this book was my first introduction to her writing. I love how it blends interpersonal and domestic drama with the drama of magic and witchcraft, and always in such a way that the two elements are inseparable from one another. It’s a charming, touching example of genre-blending, and I’d love to see more fantasy novels that follow its example.
Among Others, by Jo Walton: Like the Martian Chronicles, this book tends to be, if not classified, then at least grouped in with science fiction. That’s because it’s about science fiction—the story itself is definitely fantasy. What’s interesting about the fantasy story, too, is that the book actually shows the aftermath of what would normally be the focus of a fantasy novel—in this case, the battle between the main character and her evil magic-wielding mother. Instead, we see the narrator emotionally recovering from that battle, those science fiction books helping her along.
Magic for Beginners, by Kelly Link: So I did cheat a little bit, as this isn’t a book, but a collection of short stories (and not vaguely connection short stories, like The Martian Chronicles). But it’s one of my absolute favorite books of all time, and I love the way Link writes about magic. In these stories, magic feels like a natural extension of the world—they’re basically magical realism, really, but they have a sensibility that places them more firmly in genre. You’ve got witches and fairies and superheroes all swirled up together in a delicious postmodern ice cream.

ARC Review - Sleep No More by Aprilynne Pike

Buy the book:
Connect with the author:
Publication date: April 29th, 2014

My rating: 3.5 stars

Book summary:

"Oracles see the future but are never supposed to interfere. Charlotte learned that the hard way. If she hadn't tried to change one of her childhood visions, her father would still be alive. Since the accident, Charlotte has suppressed her visions to avoid making the same mistake. But when she receives a premonition of a classmate's murder, she can no longer ignore her powerful gift.

Then Charlotte meets someone who not only knows her secret but who also has a way for her to stop the killer. He offers to teach her how to manipulate her visions to change the future. But doing so will put Charlotte in the path of the murderer.…"


      Do you remember Wings? Aprilynne Pike has a way with words and writing stories that will remind you of your favorite childhood fairy tales. I know that a lot of my friends around blogosphere aren't the biggest fans of this author because, as I said in my review for Earthbound, first in her new paranormal series - it's something that will be more appealing for younger readers. Sleep No More doesn't go into that group, it looks like Aprilynne Pike tried to write a darker story and get the attention of different type of readers.

      What did I like?
  • Premise of Sleep No More. It is so weird and completely different than what I'm used to when it comes to A. Pike. More violent and twisted plot with paranormal elements. 
  • Charlotte. Not the kind of character you'll find in paranormal young adult novels that often. Think along the lines of Angelfall by Susan Ee.
  • Premonitions. The scariest part of the story. I couldn't help myself thinking what would I do knowing about all the bad things that will happen. 
  • The way book ended. I know that there will be a lot of people that will think how few things could have happen differently, but I loved that author didn't fall under the pressure of giving us predictable ending. 

      What I didn't like?
  •  Inception parts of the book. I didn't like that movie at all, I didn't get half of the things that happened. I had same issues here. It's not confusing like the movie, but still few things felt rushed and at times out of the place. 
  • Aunt and "the explanation". I will leave it at that to avoid spoilers, but I really hoped there will be much more to her story.
  • Is this a sequel or a standalone? The way it ended made me a little bit confused. I thought it supposed to be standalone.

Happy reading,

Waiting on Wedensday (#92)

You know the story. This is a meme created by Breaking the Spine and every week we pick books we're waiting for. Here are our picks for this week.

Glass's pick:

 Twenty-one year-old Maddie Asherford is haunted by a past she can’t remember. When she was fifteen years old, there was a tragic accident and she was left with amnesia.

In the aftermath, Maddie’s left struggling with who she is—the forgotten girl she was six years ago or the Maddie she is now. Sometimes it even feels like she might be two different people completely—the good Maddie and the bad one.

Good Maddie goes to therapy, spends time with her family, and works on healing herself. Bad Maddie rebels and has dark thoughts of hurting people and sometimes even killing them.

Maddie manages to keep her twisted thoughts hidden for the most part. That is until she starts having blackouts. Each time she wakes up from one, she’s near a murder scene with no recollection of what happened the night before and this helpless feeling like she’s losing control of her life. Maddie doesn’t want to believe she’s a killer, but she begins to question who she really was in her past. If she was bad Maddie all along and that maybe she was a killer.

Expected publication date: May 13th, 2014.

Tanja's pick:

 The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.

Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.

Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.

Expected publication date: June 17th, 2014.

We'd love to see your picks so feel free to link them up.

ARC Review - Exile (Exile, #1) by Kevin Emerson

Buy the book:
Connect with the author:
Publication date: April29th, 2014

My rating: 4.5 stars

Book summary:

"Catherine Summer Carlson knows how to manage bands like a professional—she’s a student at the PopArts Academy at Mount Hope High, where rock legends Allegiance to North got their start. Summer knows that falling for the lead singer of her latest band is the least professional thing a manager can do. But Caleb Daniels isn’t an ordinary band boy—he’s a hot, dreamy, sweet-singing, exiled-from-his-old-band, possibly-with-a-deep-dark-side band boy. And he can do that thing. That thing when someone sings a song and it inhabits you, possesses you, and moves you like a marionette to its will.

Summer also finds herself at the center of a mystery she never saw coming. When Caleb reveals a secret about his long-lost father, one band’s past becomes another’s present, and Summer finds it harder and harder to be both band manager and girlfriend. She knows what the well-mannered Catherine side of her would do, but she also knows what her heart is telling her. Maybe it’s time to accept who she really is, even if it means becoming an exile herself."

"...all together, it's doing that thing, he's doing that thing that a song can do. Do you know it? When a song inhabits you, possesses you, and moves you like a marionette to its will?"

      Didn't you write this well, Kevin Emerson? But it goes for your book too - I was completely mesmerized. And no, you don't deserve a glare anymore.

      How to describe Exile and not give away too many details? Hm... That will be hard because there's so much more to this story than what is described in the synopsis. How about I list everything I liked?

  • Music. If you are music fan like myself, and if you appreciate '90 music scene, you will feel nostalgic because of all Nirvana... um, references? You'll get it when you read the book. But it's not just about music that marked my teenage years. Exile is not another glorified novel about rock stars and their groupies. Well, of course it's not, after all it is labeled as young adult, but we are constantly bombed with those kind of stories. Kevin Emerson offers two different views on music - from a person who creates it and one who should promote it. Creativity plus business. It reminded me a lot of Amplified by Tara Kelly and even a little bit of Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John - both my favorites.
  • Summer. Main character - seventeen year old girl, band manager, music lover. I know that some of you will find her annoying, but the thing is she is more real than some fictional girl written by a woman. Who should know how is it to be seventeen year old girl. She is selfish, jealous, insecure, brave and shy, grown up but still a child. She has big plans and is all about girl power, but turns in complete idiot in front of her current crush or bastard of ex-boyfriend.
  • Mystery. Exile is not just about love and music, about cute boy and that new girl. There is whole other layer of the plot. Let's leave it at that, I don't want to spoil it for you.
  • But... There is always but. No, it's not about cliffhanger. Now you want to know if there is a cliffhanger. My lips are sealed. I found few more philosophical parts kind of misplaced. Or I didn't get them. 

Who should read it? Everyone who loved Five Flavors of Dumb, Amplified and similar books. If you want to read a little bit different young adult novel. If you are Nirvana fan. If you love music and books about music.

Happy reading,

ARC Review - Fragile Line by Brooklyn Skye

Connect with author:
Publication date: April 21st, 2014

My rating: 4 stars

Book summary:

"It can happen in a flash. One minute she’s kissing her boyfriend, the next she’s lost in the woods. Sixteen-year-old Ellie Cox is losing time. It started out small…forgetting a drive home or a conversation with a friend. But her blackouts are getting worse, more difficult to disguise as forgetfulness. When Ellie goes missing for three days, waking up in the apartment of a mysterious guy—a guy who is definitely not her boyfriend, her life starts to spiral out of control.

Perched on the edge of insanity, with horrific memories of her childhood leaking in, Ellie struggles to put together the pieces of what she’s lost—starting with the name haunting her, Gwen. Heartbreakingly beautiful, this poignant story follows one girl’s harrowing journey to finding out who she really is."


       Who wouldn't wish to read it after that book summary? As soon as I saw this book on NetGalley I knew that I had to read it (thank you Entangled Teen) because... Okay, do I really have to explain it? Girl is having a blackouts and waking up in the apartment of a hot guy. Who calls her Gwen. And her name is not Gwen. Don't you want to know what is going on? 

       Was it what I expected it to be? Yes and no. Fragile Line is a book you won't be able to put down until the last page which is a awesome thing in my opinion. Here are all the things that make this book worth your time.
  • Brooklyn Skye has a way with words. Writing was perfect, she pulls you into her story and you are not even aware when did it exactly happen. 
  • Get ready to pull an all-nighter. Fragile Line is a book that is best "digested" in one sitting and, to be honest, you wouldn't want to do anything else until you finish reading it. 
  • Topic. Mental illness is not something you will usually find in young adult novels. If you are craving something different you should give this book a chance. 
  • Ellie. She will drive you crazy sometimes, you will scream at the pages of your book in frustration, but in the end you will understand her. She could have easily turn out to be cliche character, but Brooklyn Skye managed to found that golden middle ground. 
  • It reminded me a little it of this other amazing book I read recently, Unravel by Calia Read (you can see my review here).

      Who should read it? Everyone who likes more serious topics in young adult novels. If you read and liked Entangled by Cat Clarke, Ellen Hopkins novels...

 Happy reading,

Sunday Post (#3)

Morning all. Like Now every Sunday you can expect our Sunday post, which is an awesome meme created by even more awesome Kim at Caffeinated Book Reviews! We've met bunch of you this past few weeks and you all seem amazing! We hope to continue our meetings each week!
