[MINI REVIEW] Me, the Missing and the Dead by Jenny Valentine

Me, the Missing and the Dead

Author: Jenny Valentine
Genre: YA Contemporary, Mystery
Published: April 1st 2008 by Harper Teen
Me: Lucas Swain--I'm nearly sixteen years old and live in London. I was fairly normal until the night I found Violet. Then everything changed.

The Missing: Dad. He disappeared five years ago. Nobody knows what happened to him, and nobody cares except me. It's enough to drive you crazy.

The Dead: That's Violet . . . in the urn. Speaking of crazy--I know she's trying to tell me something, and I think it's about my father. . . 

A dead lady may not be much to go on, but my dad's out there somewhere, and it's up to me to find out where.

Rating

My thoughts

This was really good. I thought at first that it's a ghost story, being there's the word 'dead' in the title. But it turns out to be a family story, of coping up with the loss of a family member. Lucas's father may not be dead, but he may as well be for the ones he left behind. 

I don't think Lucas finding Violet's urn was a coincidence. For me, it was divine intervention. It was like life's way of letting Lucas know what kind of person his father was. And in the process, it also helped him come to terms with himself, with his mother and with everything he believed in about his father. He may not get his father back but he learned to move on.

"...it wasn't like being dead was the end of everything. It was just the end of being who you were, with all the hang-ups and memories and crazy ideas that weigh you right down when you're alive. If you look at it like that, dying isn't such a bad option for some people."

[REVIEW] Geek Girl by Holly Smale

Geek Girl

Author: Holly Smale
Series: Book 1, Geek Girl series
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
Published: January 27th 2015 by Harper Teen
Purchase from: Amazon | Book Depository
Geek + runway = a hilarious runaway hit! This bestselling UK debut is full of humor and high-fashion hijinks—and now it’s coming to America.

Harriet Manners is tired of being labeled a geek. So when she’s discovered by a modeling agent, she seizes the chance to reinvent herself. There’s only one problem: Harriet is the definition of awkward. Does she have what it takes to transform from geek to chic?

Geek Girl is the first book in a hilarious new trilogy. It was also the #1 bestselling YA debut of 2013 in the UK, where it was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and won the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize for Best Book for Teens. With all the humor and fabulous shenanigans of Louise Rennison’s Confessions of Georgia Nicolson and Meg Cabot’s The Princess Diaries, Geek Girl is about to become an international superstar.

Rating

My thoughts

Hilarious and entertaining! Geek Girl is perfect for light and laid-back reading.

Who says you can't be a geek and a model at the same time?

Harriet Manners is a geek and she's proud of it. She's randomly spewing out facts and trivia and while some people find it awkward and/or annoying, for me it's cute and spontaneous. Aside from being smart, she's also funny as hell. It's not like she's trying to be funny, though. She's just so clueless half the time that things tend to catch her off guard, hence making her do funny things. So imagine what happens when she gets spotted by a modelling agency and offered a modelling gig.

[RELEASE DAY BLAST: Excerpt+Giveaway] A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd

Happy Tuesday! Today marks the release of A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd and to celebrate this book birthday, Megan and Rockstar Book Tours would like to share an excerpt from the book along with a giveaway! Check out the details below and enter to win a signed copy of A Cold Legacy and some swag. ^__^

A Cold Legacy

Author: Megan Shepherd
Series: Book 3, The Madman's Daughter series
Pub. Date: January 27, 2015
Publisher: Balzer+Bray/HarperCollins
Pages: 400
Find it: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Book Depository
After killing the men who tried to steal her father’s research, Juliet—along with Montgomery, Lucy, Balthazar, and a deathly ill Edward—has escaped to a remote estate on the Scottish moors. Owned by the enigmatic Elizabeth von Stein, the mansion is full of mysteries and unexplained oddities: dead bodies in the basement, secret passages, and fortune-tellers who seem to know Juliet’s secrets. Though it appears to be a safe haven, Juliet fears new dangers may be present within the manor’s own walls.

Then Juliet uncovers the truth about the manor’s long history of scientific experimentation—and her own intended role in it—forcing her to determine where the line falls between right and wrong, life and death, magic and science, and promises and secrets. And she must decide if she’ll follow her father’s dark footsteps or her mother’s tragic ones, or whether she’ll make her own.

With inspiration from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, this breathless conclusion to the Madman’s Daughter trilogy is about the things we’ll sacrifice to save those we love—even our own humanity.

Excerpt

Montgomery stopped the horses outside a tavern. He came to the carriage door, opening it just a crack to keep the rain from drenching us. “I’m going to ask directions. We can’t be far now.”

We watched him saunter over the muddy street as though he didn’t even feel the bite of freezing rain. A face appeared in the tavern window. The door opened and he spoke to a woman in a wool dress for a few moments, then stomped back through the mud. “This village is called Quick,” he told us. “The manor’s only five miles from here.”

A Sad News and A Mini Hiatus

Hi, guys! This'll be real quick. I just want to announce that I'll be having a mini hiatus, probably just a week or two. It's a difficult time for my family right now because my grandpa passed away yesterday morning. There's a lot to do here at home so blogging will have to take a backseat for a little while. I won't be able to reply to your comments and visit other blogs, but I have scheduled posts for until next week so you'll still see stuffs here. Book blitzes and tour stops are also taken care of. Um, I think that's it. Thanks for understanding, everyone. I'll be back soon. :)

[REVIEW] Falling From the Sky by Nikki Godwin

Falling From the Sky

Author: Nikki Godwin
Genre: YA Contemporary, Romance, LGBT
Published: February 21st 2014
Purchase from: Amazon | Book Depository | Barnes & Noble
All stability in sixteen-year-old Ridge McCoy’s life crashed and burned in the plane crash that killed his dad. This summer-long basketball camp is his chance to improve his skills and escape his problems back home. But his summer plans take a turn in an unexpected direction when he meets Micah Youngblood, the guy who runs the carousel at the local mall and has a reputation for devouring straight boys’ heterosexuality for breakfast, alongside his chocolate chip pancakes.

Ridge needs a way to avoid the guys at camp, whose only quest for the summer is to drown in beer and hook up with girls. So when Micah offers to explain how the ten unique horses on the carousel are significant to his tribe, Ridge takes him up on it. Still, Ridge can't decide if this is a bad thing or not. All he knows is that he hasn’t felt this alive since his dad fell from the sky, and as the horse adventures come to an end, Ridge finds himself falling as well – for Micah.

Rating

My thoughts

I don't think I've ever swooned over an LGBT book before. Falling From the Sky is a brilliant story of friendship, romance and being yourself. This book is beautifully written and will definitely tug at your heartstrings.

I totally loved the characters! I ship Micah and Ridge so hard that they don't have a choice but to sail. These two are so adorable, yet both are complex characters with interesting backgrounds. In a way, they're both broken but they have different ways of coping. While Ridge is quiet and withdraws to himself, Micah is all bubbly and enthusiastic. The differences between the two of them emphasized the fact that their characters complement each other. And both are really genuinely nice persons that I just couldn't help loving them.

What I also liked about this book is that Micah and Ridge are not the only dynamic and interesting characters here. Zoey can be both fun and protective at the same time. I loved that there are times when she doesn't need to say a word to convey what she thinks. Tuck, bless him, has minimum exposure but darn if he doesn't make his mark in the few times he encounters Micah and Ridge. He oozes this thug vibes, but he's a really really nice person. That gift he gave to Ridge is amazing. And the twins! Jade and Abby are totally lovable! They're also total opposites, but both adorable nonetheless. I was teary-eyed when the twins said goodbye to Ridge and it was Jade who was crying. But the Bestest Best Friend Award goes to...*insert drumroll here* Terrence! Seriously, we need more people like him. I loved him for being so supportive of Ridge. He doesn't judge, but just listens and gives sound advice. It's really nice that Ridge has someone he can tell everything to and not be judged. And bonus points for slashing Zach Perry's tires. Haha!

The story is simple enough but well-put together. The romance is clean and sweet and swoon-worthy. I liked the fact that though Micah was instantly attracted to Ridge from the start, they still have the foundation of friendship and mutual love for Xbox. So I guess it's safe to say that there's no insta-love? ^__^ The pacing is a bit slow and I kept waiting for something big and terrible to happen, but aside from the occasional petty quarrels, all is well. There's also no shortage on humor courtesy of funny characters and witty dialogue. 

Although Falling From the Sky is a light and fluffy read, there are also touching and beautiful moments that deal with Micah's and Ridge's separate issues. I think it helps a lot for the both of them that they have each other, since they both know how it feels losing someone you love.

And the ending! Gods, I love that ending. I didn't figure out what 5683 means until the end when Ridge realizes what it means. And it had me swooning all over!!! ^__^ I just wish they said those words to each other personally, though I don't mind that much because THAT FREAKING LAST LINE MADE ME PUKE RAINBOWS!!

So cute and heartwarming! Falling From the Sky comes highly recommended!

Favorite lines

He's right, though, about a little disaster being in everything. We have to just live among the wreckage. I think some people just got the short straw and have more disaster than others.

"I've always thought more along the lines of the wind. You can't see it, but you can feel it. You can breathe it in. It can knock you down as easily as it can be subtle and perfect, sort of like love. So I like to think she's in the win. That way, she's with me at all times."

[MINI REVIEW] Prom Nights From Hell by Meg Cabot

Prom Nights from Hell

(Short Stories from Hell series)
Authors: Meg Cabot, Kim Harrison, Stephenie Meyer, Michele Jaffe, Lauren Myracle
Genre: YA Paranormal, Fantasy
Published: April 10th 2007 by Harper Teen
Purchase from: Amazon | Book Depository | Barnes & Noble
In this exciting collection, bestselling authors Meg Cabot (How to Be Popular), Kim Harrison (A Fistful of Charms), Michele Jaffe (Bad Kitty), Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), and Lauren Myracle (ttyl) take bad prom nights to a whole new level-a paranormally bad level. Wardrobe malfunctions and two left feet don't hold a candle to discovering your date is the Grim Reaper-and he isn't here to tell you how hot you look.

From angels fighting demons to a creepy take on getting what you wish for, these five stories will entertain better than any DJ in a bad tux. No corsage or limo rental necessary. Just good, scary fun.

Rating

My thoughts

The Exterminator's Daughter was cool but I was kinda hoping begging for more.

The Corsage freaked the hell out of me, especially that I was reading it at night. I was totally creeped out by the part wherein fresh-from-the-grave Will was trying to enter Frankie's house.

Madison Avery and the Dim Reaper was kinda okay, but it was the one I liked the least.

Kiss and Tell was also cool. I totally loved Miranda being some kind of a teen Wonder Woman. Not only was she a kick-ass babe but also a smart one.

Hell on Earth was the best. It was kinda cliche, a demon falling for an angel blah blah. Except that the guy in the story was not a full angel but just an offspring of one. But still, it was a good read.

[REVIEW] Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss

Author: Stephanie Perkins
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
Published: July 16th 2013 by Speak
Purchase from: Amazon | The Book Depository | Barnes & Noble
Can Anna find love in the City of Light?

Anna is happy in Atlanta. She has a loyal best friend and a crush on her coworker at the movie theater, who is just starting to return her affection. So she's less than thrilled when her father decides to send her to a boarding school in Paris for her senior year.

But despite not speaking a word of French, Anna meets some cool new people, including the handsome √Čtienne St. Clair, who quickly becomes her best friend. Unfortunately, he's taken —and Anna might be, too. Will a year of romantic near misses end with the French kiss she's waiting for?

Rating

My Thoughts

This book is amazing! The story is simple enough, but beautifully and creatively written. It's straight to the point but not boring. Stephanie Perkins mixed simplicity with fab. One of the best YA contemporary I've read.

Let me tell you what I think of Anna. I love this girl, even though sometimes her heart gets in the way of her head it's almost stupid. But I like her wit. Her sense of humor and imagination are amazing. I love being in her head and it's a good thing that the book is written in her POV. She's funny and smart and sarcastic, in a good way. And considering that her father enrolled her in Paris against her will, I'd say Anna is also pretty strong. She handled her transfer well, even though it was difficult for her.

Genre: contemporary LGBT YA romance

When sixteen-year-old Jude Calvert sets out to steal stained glass from a broken cathedral window, he finds more than shards of red. He finds Max Rangel - his eye candy from his new LGBT support group - hauling a giraffe carcass across an abandoned part of town with a pack of guys. And he still accepts Max's dinner invite a few days later.

Still, animal lover Jude can't get the giraffe out of his mind. It doesn't take long for him to confront Max, who gives him partial answers and introduces him to a secret brotherhood of not-so-typical game hunters. Unable to tell his mom (the savior of black cats everywhere) or his dad (the zoo's head veterinarian) and unwilling to go back to his overbearing therapist, Jude quickly finds himself sucked into the underground world of taxidermy, theft, and drug deals.

At first, he's willing to do anything for the brotherhood just because he's so thankful to belong to someone again after serious drama with his ex-clique and ex-boyfriend. But when his underground life collides with his life above, he realizes he may have bitten off more than even the biggest animal can chew.

Waiting On Wednesday [#13]: None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My WoW pick today is:

None of the Above

Author: I.W. Gregorio
Release Date: April 7th 2015
Publisher: Balzer & Bray/Harperteen
Genre: YA Contemporary
A groundbreaking story about a teenage girl who discovers she's intersex . . . and what happens when her secret is revealed to the entire school. Incredibly compelling and sensitively told, None of the Above is a thought-provoking novel that explores what it means to be a boy, a girl, or something in between.

What if everything you knew about yourself changed in an instant?

When Kristin Lattimer is voted homecoming queen, it seems like another piece of her ideal life has fallen into place. She's a champion hurdler with a full scholarship to college and she's madly in love with her boyfriend. In fact, she's decided that she's ready to take things to the next level with him.

But Kristin's first time isn't the perfect moment she's planned--something is very wrong. A visit to the doctor reveals the truth: Kristin is intersex, which means that though she outwardly looks like a girl, she has male chromosomes, not to mention boy "parts."

Dealing with her body is difficult enough, but when her diagnosis is leaked to the whole school, Kristin's entire identity is thrown into question. As her world unravels, can she come to terms with her new self?

Why I'm Waiting On It

Groundbreaking and thought-provoking? YES, PLEASE! I'm always on the lookout for unique contemporaries so None of the Above makes my books-to-watch-out-for list. Intersex is not something I see on YA everyday. Plus the early reviews on Goodreads are really promising! I can't wait to read this book! ^__^ 

What books are you eager to read, precious? Comment away!

{BLOG TOUR: Excerpt + Giveaway} His Wounded Light by Christine Brae

Last December, I participated in the PH Blog Tour for The Light in the Wound, a contemporary romance by Christine Brae.

The perfect marriage.

The jilted lover.

Their worlds collide.

Fate intervenes twelve years later and their paths intersect once again. All three will question whether the heart is truly capable of dividing and being divided; each will decide whether it matters who you loved first or who you love last.

Together they will learn that in the end, there can always only be one.

Excerpt

“Fate and circumstance – there’s no turning them back once the wheels of life have been set in motion. Nothing you can do change the direction of your destiny. You can influence your future by revising your goals and adjusting your purpose, but you can’t change what is meant to be. We are powerless to fight it; all we do is sustain it.

[REVIEW] Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor

Maybe One Day

Author: Melissa Kantor
Genre: YA Contemporary
Published: February 18th 2014 by HarperTeen
Purchase from: Amazon | The Book Depository | Barnes & Noble
Zoe and her best friend, Olivia, have always had big plans for the future, none of which included Olivia getting sick. Still, Zoe is determined to put on a brave face and be positive for her friend. Even when she isn't sure what to say.

Even when Olivia misses months of school.

Even when Zoe starts falling for Calvin, Olivia's crush.

The one thing that keeps Zoe moving forward is knowing that Olivia will beat this, and everything will go back to the way it was before. It has to. Because the alternative is too terrifying for her to even imagine.

Rating

My Thoughts

Maybe One Day is one of those books that I had such high hopes for. I’ve read such great reviews for this book and upon reading the blurb, I expected that I would likely be lying in a puddle of tears by the time I finished reading this book. I liked it, but not without issues.

First, I’d like to begin with the things I liked about this book. I loved the prose and Melissa Kantor’s writing style. It has such a poignant quality to it without going over-the-top. The words were beautifully writtenMaybe One Day is a gripping tale of friendship in the face of tragedy and the author succeeded in eliciting emotions from me as a reader. These reasons combined with the fact that the story itself is really good and compelling kept me glued to the book until the end.

[MINI REVIEW] Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan

Love is the Higher Law

Author: David Levithan
Genre: YA Contemporary
Published: August 25th 2009 by Knopf Books for Young Readers
First there is a Before, and then there is an After. . . 

The lives of three teens—Claire, Jasper, and Peter—are altered forever on September 11, 2001. Claire, a high school junior, has to get to her younger brother in his classroom. Jasper, a college sophomore from Brooklyn, wakes to his parents’ frantic calls from Korea, wondering if he’s okay. Peter, a classmate of Claire’s, has to make his way back to school as everything happens around him.

Here are three teens whose intertwining lives are reshaped by this catastrophic event. As each gets to know the other, their moments become wound around each other’s in a way that leads to new understandings, new friendships, and new levels of awareness for the world around them and the people close by.

David Levithan has written a novel of loss and grief, but also one of hope and redemption as his characters slowly learn to move forward in their lives, despite being changed forever.

Rating

My Thoughts

While I found the overall message of this book inspiring and thought-provoking, it was hard for me to connect with Love is the Higher Law. David Levithan’s writing is impressive as always and I appreciate the beauty of his words (I have a lot of favorite lines here), but I wasn’t really impressed. I couldn’t get a grasp of Claire, Peter and Jasper. I know this book was about how the 9/11 attack affected these three teenagers, but somehow they all felt so frustratingly empty. There was little character development here and almost no plot at all, so I found it difficult to follow the story. Such a waste really, because the characters were actually interesting. I really wanted to like this book because the theme was appealing. Sadly, this is one book by David Levithan that’s just not for me. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t like it either.

Chelsea thought she knew what being a rock star was like . . . until she became one. After losing a TV talent show, she slid back into small-town anonymity. But one phone call changed everything.

Now she’s the lead singer of the band Melbourne, performing in sold-out clubs every night and living on a bus with three gorgeous and talented guys. The bummer is that the band barely tolerates her. And when teen hearthrob Lucas Rivers take an interest in her, Chelsea is suddenly famous, bringing Melbourne to the next level—not that they’re happy about that.
