January Wrap-Up & February TBR

      This month was pretty good. I read some good books and some books that disappointed me. I also kept up with my New Years goal on reviewing at least two books a week. Which I am very happy and proud that I was able to do it. It also means that I broke my record for how many reviews I posted in a month.  I also kept up on my goal to do a post a day, except for a Sunday here and there.

Review: Splintered by A. G. Howard

Grade: 4 Butterflies
Name: Splintered
Author: A.G. Howard
Source: My bookshelf
Released: January 1st 2013
Publisher: Amulet Books
Pages: Hardcover, 371 pages

Goodreads summary

This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, as well as a girl’s pangs of first love and independence. Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.
When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.


My Thoughts

      I love the story of Alice in Wonderland and when I heard that there was a retelling of it coming out was instantly interested. When I read the summary and saw the cover I was sold. I got it has fast has I could, but I didn't read it right away, because I had other books to be read and also because I read some not so nice reviews about this book. So, I went into is a little wary, but I came out of it amazed!

      This book started out good. Everything was just good. For some reason I couldn't really get, I felt a little disconnected with it and there was a few problems with it besides the fact that I wasn't connecting with the story. Then a little bit before the half way point of the book, I don't know what it was, but I got instantly involved with the story. It was the sitting on the edge of you chair-nail biting-heart pounding- crying your eyes out, kind of involved.

      The plot though most of the book didn't have many twists and turns. Which was one of the down side to this book, because, while I am fine with plots like that, I just prefer books that keeps on shocking you throughout the whole plot. However, do not think this book had no twists and turns, its like the author was saving all the twists for the end, because in the last 50 or so pages there was twist after turn after twists. Just as soon as you thought you knew how the end was going to play out the author throws in another turn that will turn your theory to dust.

      The writing in this book was fantastic, the world building really shows that, because the author really nailed the dark and forbidding atmosphere that is in the world.  However, there was some places where I couldn't understand what the author was trying to say. For example, sometimes when something was being explained I got really confused. And in some places your getting to much information at one time and you get really confused on trying to sort out everything that was said.

      The ending in this book was jaw dropping heart pounding (can I say heart pounding twice in a review?) and mind blowing! It was the best part in the whole book!! I even cried in the ending and its been a while since a book made me cry.  I also didn't know that this was a stand alone until after I read the end. When I figured that out I was really sad, because I love this world and the characters in it and I want to read more of them, (especially a certain moth).

      Overall, even though there was some problems in the beginning, the author did a fantastic job from turning the sweet story of Alice in Wonderland into something haunting and dark that will stick with you weeks after you finish it. However, if you didn't like Alice in Wonderland, because it was to random, then you might not like this book.

This book got....

Beloved, This is a really good book.

Top Ten Tuesday (7)

This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks question is

Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters Ever

This was a little hard at first, but after I started thinking about it Names just kept coming and coming. This list is in no particular order.

1. Vee from Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.
Vee is the most self-centered spoiled brat I have ever read. I don't know how people could stand her in the book.

2. Kelsey Hayes from Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck.
When I was reading the Tiger's Curse Kelsey felt two-dimensional to me. She was such a flat character. And her decisions felt forced, like the author made her decided that just for the sake of the plot.

3. Ren From Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck.
I know a lot of people have Ren as one of their top book crush, but I honestly that he was creepy. He stole Kelsey hair ribbon so he could have a token of her, who doesn't think that was creepy.

4. Eon/Eona from Eon by Alison Goodman.
The problem I had with this character wasn't that she was written bad, I just didn't like her. I have no idea why, I just couldn't stand her.

5. Mara Dyer from the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.
Mara was one of the reasons why I didn't like this book. In some places in the book she was so incredibly stupid and that frustrated me to no end

6. Rachel Adams from Defiance by C. J. Redwine.
Rachel was so naive and had such an ego. Its like, you think you can control and kill a monster that hundreds of people who died trying to kill it and if you fail thousands of people will die. So, instead of planning it out you go head first and when you fail you are surprised.

7. Lily Sanderson from Forgive my Fins by Terra Lynn Childs.
Lily was such a shallow spoiled brat in this book. That is all I am going to say

8. Belly From The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han.
Belly was one of the most self-centered character I have ever read. I am fine with characters have faults, but I can not stand a selfish character.

9. Zoey from Forget You by Jennifer Echoles.
I know, I still love Jennifer Echoles, but this was the only character I disliked in all of her books. I disliked her, because she was the stereotypical popular mean girl and I hate characters like that.

10. Evie from Paranormalcy by Kiersten White.
Evie was just way to naive and stupid for me.

Thats my answer, whats yours?

Review: Incarnate by Jodi Meadows.

Grade: 5 Butterflies
Name: incarnate (Newsoul #1)
Authore: Jodi Meadows
Released: January 31st 2012 by
Source: My Bookshelf
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Pages: Hardcover, 374 pages

Goodreads summary

New soul

Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.

No soul

Even Ana's own mother thinks she's a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she'll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?


Sam believes Ana's new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana's enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else's life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?


My Thoughts

     I had seen this book in other people's blogs and it looked pretty good. I never got it, because my library didn't have it and I am not willing to spend 20 dollars on a book that I may or may not like. When I saw that it finally released in paperback I bought it and I am so glad I did.

     I have always liked the concept of soul mates and when I first read the summary I thought it would go into that. So, I was a little disappointed that this book didn't have much to do with the concept of soul mate, but the rest of the book blew me away! Jodi Meadows spun this enchanting web that held you captive until the last page.

     The plot in this book was brilliant, just plain brilliant. It wasn't very fast paced. I was fine with that, because it was written so well that the plot still kept your attention even at the slow parts. Also it had the contemporary feel to it. What I mean is the plot had the emotional feeling to it that most of contemporary books have, mainly because this book is about the main character trying to find her place in a world that doesn't really want her to have a place. However, do not fear people who don't like those kinds of books, because this book still has the fantasy element to it and it does have action and mystery in it. Especially in the end.

     What I also liked about this plot was that it was written so well. The world building was so vivid that I could picture it in my head after just a paragraph of the world getting explained. Any author that can do that deserves a round of applause.

     Another thing I liked was how when things where getting explained the author didn't throw everything at you in a short amount of time that left your head spinning and you thinking "what she she just say?". No, it wasn't like that at all. You where given information about the world and society at a good pace throughout the whole book.

     One of the best things about this book was the characters. The main character Ana felt so broken at times, but still had this innocence in her. Which also shows how great the author is, because if you can write a character that has that has that dynamic and still have it believable then you are fantastic.

     The character development in this book was also great. I don't really talk a lot about character development in my reviews mainly because I don't often see character development in a book that is great. However, in this book it was outstanding. We start out this book with the main character Ana trying to get to the main city. When she was by herself like that you could see her strength and it shined. However, when she meets other people she hides in her shell, because she is so used to her mother physical abusing her when she says something or has an opinion. So, she thinks everyone else is going to do that to her. However, throughout this whole book you can see Ana coming out of that and becoming stronger and stronger. It was really great to read.

    One of the only bad things about this book was it took me a while to wrap my head around how the world works in this book. In this book when you die you get reincarnated into another body. So, there are 5 thousands year olds in baby's bodies. Also when you get reincarnated you don't often stay the same gender. So, you could be a man when time and the next you are a girl. It was weird at first, but I got used to it after a while.

    The last thing I got annoyed with was I would have liked more of Ana's and Sam's relationship. I loved their relationship so much. You could actually feel the chemistry this characters had for each other. I want more of it, because I loved it and just want to read more of them. Also, because I felt like the author didn't really go deep into their relationship. You could tell when reading this that Ana liked Sam and Sam liked Ana, but it didn't really go any deeper than that for their feelings. I am not saying the relationship felt shallow, I am just saying I wish Ana thought more about it and they discussed their feelings for each other more.

     All in all, this book was brilliant!!! I loved it so much!! everything was outstanding, from the characters to the world building and the writing shined throughout this whole book. I can not express how much I loved this book!! Please go and read it, because you do not want to miss out on this wonderful and fantastic book.

This book got....

Incarnate by Jodi Meadows.
There is a story to this, because I got a copy of this last week. A few days a go I was reading this and loving it. However, when I got to the end I figured out that a chapter was printed twice and because of that the last chapter wasn't in the book. I was so mad! So, I called the store and told them what happened and they said I could come in and exchange my copy for a good copy. I went today and got this wonderful copy. The review will be up Monday.


I got aproved for...
The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett.
I found this one a while ago when I was looking for debut books for the debut author reading challenge. It sounds so good and plot sound so unique. So, thank you to the publishers for this awesome book.

Q: What is the last book that kept you up late into the night just to finish it?

       My last few reads made me do that. When I was reading Foretold by Jana Oliver I stayed up until 1:00 in the morning to read it. Another one is Incarnate by Jodi Meadows, I stayed up way too late to finish this one. The bad thing is that I couldn't even read the ending, because it was printed wrong and my copy doesn't have the last chapter in it.0_o I was so mad about that.
      The last one is Everneath by Brodi Ashton. I didn't stay up as late for this one compared to the other two. Mainly because my second semester of school started the next day. So, I was not able to read as much as I wanted that night.

P.S please vote on the poll on the left bar.

That's my answer, what was your answer.

Readers Choice #1(Please Vote)

      I have seen a few blogs doing this and it is where you put up a poll on your blog asking your readers to vote and decided what book you will be reading and reviewing next. The blogs I have seen it on do it once a week, but I didn't want to do that. So, I decided to do it a week before I post my monthly wrap-up and just add it to my TBR pail for the next month. The poll should be up on the left when I post this. Please vote on the poll or in a comment. You can choose more then one on the poll, but please vote for your top TWO books you want me to read and review in the month of February.

The choices:

Once Every Never by Lesley Livingston:

On the surface Clarinet Reid is a pretty typical teenager.

She's smart, but a bit of a slacker; outgoing, but just a little insecure; not exactly a mischief-maker, but trouble tends to find her wherever she goes.

Also? She unwittingly carries a centuries-old Druid Blood Curse running through her veins.
Now, with a single thoughtless act, what started off as the Summer Vacation in Dullsville suddenly spirals into a deadly race to find a stolen artifact, avert an explosive catastrophe, save a Celtic warrior princess, right a dreadful wrong that happened centuries before Clare was even born, and if there's still time, literally, maybe even get a date.

This is the kind of adventure that happens to a girl once every, never

 Dearly Departed by Lia Habel
The year is 2195. The place is New Victoriaa high-tech nation modeled on the manners, mores, and fashions of an antique era. A teenager in high society, Nora Dearly is far more interested in military history and her country’s political unrest than in tea parties and debutante balls. But after her beloved parents die, Nora is left at the mercy of her domineering aunt, a social-climbing spendthrift who has squandered the family fortune and now plans to marry her niece off for money. For Nora, no fate could be more horrible—until she’s nearly kidnapped by an army of walking corpses.

But fate is just getting started with Nora. Catapulted from her world of drawing-room civility, she’s suddenly gunning down ravenous zombies alongside mysterious black-clad commandos and confronting “The Laz,” a fatal virus that raises the dead—and hell along with them. Hardly ideal circumstances. Then Nora meets Bram Griswold, a young soldier who is brave, handsome, noble . . . and dead. But as is the case with the rest of his special undead unit, luck and modern science have enabled Bram to hold on to his mind, his manners, and his body parts. And when his bond of trust with Nora turns to tenderness, there’s no turning back. Eventually, they know, the disease will win, separating the star-crossed lovers forever. But until then, beating or not, their hearts will have what they desire

Hourglass by Myra McEntire

For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn't there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents' death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She's tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson's willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may also change her past.

Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he's around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?

Touch of Death by Kelly Hashway

Jodi Marshall isn’t sure how she went from normal teenager to walking disaster. One minute she’s in her junior year of high school, spending time with her amazing boyfriend and her best friend. The next she’s being stalked by some guy no one seems to know.

After the stranger, Alex, reveals himself, Jodi learns he’s not a normal teenager and neither is she. With a kiss that kills and a touch that brings the dead back to life, Jodi discovers she’s part of a branch of necromancers born under the 13th sign of the zodiac, Ophiuchus. A branch of necromancers that are descendents of Medusa. A branch of necromancers with poisoned blood writhing in their veins.

Jodi’s deadly to the living and even more deadly to the deceased. She has to leave her old, normal life behind before she hurts the people she loves. As if that isn’t difficult enough, Jodi discovers she’s the chosen one who has to save the rest of her kind from perishing at the hands of Hades. If she can’t figure out how to control her power, history will repeat itself, and her race will become extinct

I would really appreciate it if you voted :)

Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Grade: 4.5 Butterflies
Name: Everneath (Everneath #1)
Author: Brodi Ashton
Released: January 24th 2012
Publisher: HarperCollins / Balzer + Bray
Source: My bookshelves
Pages: Hardcover, 370 pages

Goodreads Summary

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath. Now she's returned--to her old life, her family, her boyfriend--before she's banished back to the underworld . . . this time forever. She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these precious months forgetting the Everneath and trying to reconnect with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance--and the one person she loves more than anything. But there's just one problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who enticed her to the Everneath in the first place, has followed Nikki home. Cole wants to take over the throne in the underworld and is convinced Nikki is the key to making it happen. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back, this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time on the Surface draws to a close and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she is forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's queen.

Everneath is a captivating story of love, loss, and immortality from debut author Brodi Ashton.


My Thoughts

     I have seen this book everywhere. It seems like most of the bloggers have read this book and has an opinion about it. And almost everyone likes it, I have seen very few bad reviews on this. I never read this book until now, because my library doesn't have it and I am not willing to spend 20 dollars on a book. So, when I saw that this book finally came out in paperback I got it and boy am I glad I did.

     This book started out good, good writing, good characters, and good plot. However, I wasn't instantly sucked into the plot. For the first half of these book I recognized that the writing and everything else was good, but it felt like me, as the reader, was put at arms length. I could not for the life of me get seriously into this book. I kept reading, because everything was good, but I just felt disconnected to the book. After a while I felt myself slowly and gradually start to connect with it. After the half way mark I was completely sucked into this book!!!When that happened the book got so much better.

     The plot in this book was not very fast, but it wasn't slow either, it was right in between. There is a very thin line when that happens in a book, because depending on how good of an writer the author is it could be very bad or very good. Luckily, Brodi Ashton is a very talented writer and she pulled it off. The pacing in this book was great!!! I loved it!!

     There is a Love triangle in this book and that was one of the reason why I immediately picked this book up. I am really tired of love triangles. However, Brodi Ashton's talent for writing shined though and it takes a lot for an author to make me like their love triangle. The love triangle in this book was believable and likable. It also felt like the love triangle wasn't just there for the sake of there being a love triangle. It felt like it contributed to the plot. Which also shows how great the writing was, because it is very hard for an author to do that.

     Lets talk characters now. When I was reading this I felt like there was nothing really special about them and they where average. However, after I finished it and now I am looking back at it I was completely wrong. They characters in this book where fantastic, completely fantastic!!! They felt like real people who where stuck in the book. I just really loved them! Although, the one I think I am going to remember for a long time is Nikki. She had her flaws, but that is what made her feel so real.

     Overall, I am giving this book 4.5 Butterflies because it took me awhile to get connect with this book, but when I did this book blew me away. The characters where wonderful and felt so real, the plot was great and the perfect pace for me, and the writing was outstanding!! Brodi Ashton did so many great things in her Debut book that some authors who wrote five books can't even do. I recommend this book a 100 times over. Get this book right now!!

this book got....

4.5 Butterflies
Beautiful, this is a great book.
with only one tiny thing bad in it.
