GOODREADS SUMMARY
 
Felicity St. John has it all—loyal best friends, a hot guy, and artistic talent. And she’s right on track to win the Miss Scarlet pageant. Her perfect life is possible because of just one thing: her long, wavy, coppery red hair. 

Having red hair is all that matters in Scarletville. Redheads hold all the power—and everybody knows it. That’s why Felicity is scared down to her roots when she receives an anonymous note: 

I know your secret. 

Because Felicity is a big fake. Her hair color comes straight out of a bottle. And if anyone discovered the truth, she’d be a social outcast faster than she could say "strawberry blond." Her mother would disown her, her friends would shun her, and her boyfriend would dump her. And forget about winning that pageant crown and the prize money that comes with it—money that would allow her to fulfill her dream of going to art school. 

Felicity isn’t about to let someone blackmail her life away. But just how far is she willing to go to protect her red cred? 

 
Both title and cover is what caught my eye. The girl in front who has a finger to her lips, like she has a secret, reminded me lot of TV Show Pretty Little Liars. Also way other girls were standing, to her back and their hair lighter shade of red, I could tell that there was something going on there. A secret. A mystery. It had me wondering what the girl was hiding and the title Red had me wondering how it related to story, since cover caught attention first, before I read the summary. I was hooked from moment that I read the summary; it looked my type of book. Red had me on edge of my seat till I reached the end. I had hard time believing that it was author’s debut novel. 

Felicity : She was my favorite character from start. She was dedicated and she didn’t let everything that happened to her, with Gabby, her mother get to her. Well mostly. I was wondering what Gabby had against her too, to have her blackmail like that, I figured that maybe she done something to her, that slipped her mind. When I found out it was all for internship, I was furious like Felicity was. Even if I could see why she did it, did she have ask her to do such horrible things, like vote for her instead for her best friend, take her prom date? If I was in her position, I would broke down long time ago. Felicity has courage, especially after what she did at pageant. I wish she would stand up to her mother sooner, or told her how she felt. I hated how she treated her own daughter. More like a prize then a daughter. Despite how everyone acted, I felt like getting everything out in open was relief to her, even if she didn’t confess to it at first. 

Brent & Jonathan : I didn’t like Brent at all. I tried to, but I just couldn’t. Despite way he cared for her at times. Other times it didn’t seem like he got her, or felt like he wanted one thing. Honestly, I don’t know what she saw him besides that he was most popular guy in school. Way he accused her of cheating when he saw the jacket? Like he didn’t have any trust in her at all. Though Felicity wasn’t being honest completely. Now, Jonathan, they had a connection. He seemed to understand her, understand her art. It seemed like he was only one that he could talk about art to. I had a feeling that he liked her from beginning, mostly by way that he acted around her. What happened between them during the prom was my favorite scene. I think it first time that she realized how caring he way, that she might be with wrong guy. I was waiting for the kiss since then. I was hoping she come to her senses and see that he is guy for her. There were so much chemistry between them, and he listened to her, had connection with her. Connection that she didn’t have with Brent. 

There was suspense almost all way through the novel. Even after she found out about Gabby, there was always something happening, there was tension. There was an anxiety of what is Gabby going have her do next. If she would go too far, expose her. Most of all I was curious if Felicity find a way to expose her somehow, for revenge. I also wondered if she tell either Ivy or Hallie about it, I was hoping she would. Of course could see why she didn’t, she was afraid they would reject her. I was happy that at least Ivy was there for her, at the end. 

There wasn’t a single moment, that didn’t make me crave for more. I am eager to see what Alison Cherry comes up with next.

GOODREADS SUMMARY
 
Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it's time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.
The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe-haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do-and they are just as determined to stay together. 

Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won't even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost. 

Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission-because Cinder isn't just the key to unlocking the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, he's also their friend. And in a dying world, the bonds between people are what matter most. 

In this final book in her stunning Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.

 
An amazing conclusion to a series I loved right from start. I am going miss the characters, the story. I been looking forward to this book since reading Under The Never Sky, I was eager to see what happens with them. Where Aria and Perry would be lead next. Under The Never Sky was most engaging series I read this year. There were times I had force myself to put the book down. Not only did it have amazing characters, descriptions but have such amazing artwork, titles. Into Still Blue was my favorite cover from all of the books. It’s a great final book cover. Veronica Rossi has a talent. It’s unique, and even after you finish reading it, makes you want re-read it all over again. I’m hoping she writes more books soon. I’m excited to find out what she comes up with next. 


I didn’t think it was possible for me to love Aria, Perry and Roar but I was wrong. In beginning though, I had a feeling that Perry and Roar’s friendship might not be restored, mostly of how he was acting towards Perry, angry. I can’t blame him but I think he could handle it a bit better. All through book I was curious to see if it will go back to way it was. I was glad when they finally talked it out at the end. In way, it’s all thanks to Aria. Who knows what could happen between the two of them, if she didn’t have them talk it out. Aria’s father, I was starting to wonder if she ever find out. I have feeling that despite her being angry with him, she wants some sort of relationship with her father. Glad she realized it at the end. 

Now Sable, he was one character I hated from start. He betrayed, killed so many. When he murdered Soren’s father in front of him, I hated him even more. I hoped that he would get for what is coming for him in end. Soren, another character that surprised me, he changed so much through this book. He became friends with Perry, Roar and even Brooke, something that I never imagined happening. He became one of characters I didn’t like to one that I loved. That was another unexpected twist in the series. I was happy to see a happy ending, well expect for Cinder not making it. That made me sad. But at least Sable is gone and Aria and Perry together. After everything they gone through, they deserved a happy ending together. 


I’m looking forward to movie, hopefully be as good. This is one series that is worth checking out. Rossi has an unique talent.

GOODREADS SUMMARY
 
It's been months since Aria learned of her mother's death. 

Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him. 

Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It's a moment they've been longing for with countless expectations. And it's a moment that lives up to all of them. At least, at first. 

Then it slips away. The Tides don't take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry's control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist? 

Threatened by false friends and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night? 

In this second book in her spellbinding Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi combines fantasy and sci-fi elements to create a captivating adventure-and a love story as perilous as it is unforgettable. 

 
I didn’t think books could possibly get any better. Once again, I was proven wrong. I’m in love with this series, the storyline and the characters. It’s unlike any other book I read, and I have read quite few dystopian books. This book was filled with even more action then first one was, there was more going on and more suspense of what is going happen next. How can you not love a book that has love, friendship, adventure, survival? It’s everything that I love in novel. It’s one of those storylines that kept my attention till end. Once I reached the end, I picked up the next book right away. I wanted see what would be in store next for Aria and Perry, even Roar.  


Aria, Perry, Roar: Those 3 are my favorite characters in the book, so far. I am always looking forward in seeing what they are going to face next. I love how close all 3 of them, the way that they are looking out for one another. In a way it reminds me of some of my best friends, how they look out for me, and how I look out for them. Roar and Aria form a special bond in this book, they grow pretty close. It’ s no wonder that Perry thinks there is something between two of them when they return. It even made me wonder if maybe something could develop between them. Only when they return, I can tell that there won’t be, she loves Perry and only Perry. I felt bad for Roar when Liv died, I felt like I could feel the pain that he was feeling. I was glad that Aria was there with him, he needed someone, even if he wouldn’t admit it. 


I know that this is fantasy, made up word. Yet the descriptions in this book was so vivid, I could picture everything. Tides, Adventure that Aria and Roar went on together. Everything. It felt real to me. In first book I disliked Soren but in this book, he actually grew on me. He did try help Aria, went behind his father’s back. Maybe he does have a heart, thought what happened wasn’t his entire fault. I was glad to see his return, I was curious since the first novel what happened to me. If he was looking for her, for revenge. Question now, is will he help Aria more and will he survive in Outside? Aria barely did in beginning.
I hated most of Tides, mostly because of how they treated Aria, how they tried to kill. Though she came, to try and help them. I was kind of hoping that they would accept her in some way. At least some of them did, so not everyone seemed to be against her. When she was poisoned, I wanted come after whoever tried kill her as much as Perry did. I could see how much they loved each other, just by way that they tried protecting each other. 


Now, I am sad that it’s going come to end soon but at same time, excited to see how it’s going to end. Who will survive? Will Perry and Aria’s relationship last till the end? 


Love Fantasy? Love Adventure? Love Romance? This is series for you. One that you won’t regret. One of the most engaging books.

GOODREADS SUMMARY 
 
The stakes have risen even higher in this third book in the Hourglass series. 

The Hourglass is a secret organization focused on the study of manipulating time, and its members — many of them teenagers -¬have uncanny abilities to make time work for them in mysterious ways. 

Inherent in these powers is a responsibility to take great care, because altering one small moment can have devastating consequences for the past, present, and future. But some time trav¬elers are not exactly honorable, and sometimes unsavory deals must be struck to maintain order. 

With the Infinityglass (central to understanding and harnessing the time gene) at large, the hunt is on to find it before someone else does. 

But the Hourglass has an advantage. Lily, who has the ability to locate anything lost, has determined that the Infinityglass isn't an object. It's a person. And the Hourglass must find him or her first. But where do you start searching for the very key to time when every second could be the last? 

 
From moment I picked up this novel, I knew that I was going to love it. I was right; I was blown away with this book, till the end. Even when I came to end, I wished that there was more. Out of all books is Hourglass, this turned out to be my favorite, usually I like first book the most. Just like the other novels, the cover is break taking, it makes the reader curious, even if you didn’t read the series before, the cover will get you pick up the book. The cover itself has suspense written all over it. Infinityglass, was bit different from others too because instead of being told from one point of view, it’s told from two: Hallie & Dune and the characters engage you in the story. It also took place in two different locations in beginning. 


Hallie & Dune: There was something about both them I loved. However Hallie was my favorite out of those two. I love her attitude most of all, and her dedication to everything. Most of all I loved the relationship between Hallie and Dune; it was unlike the other relationships between the Hourglass members. At first, I was sure that it wouldn’t happen between the two of them because of way that Hallie acted towards him. Of course I couldn’t blame, because she did assume he was just another bodyguard at first. As book progressed, I could see how both of them cared for each other, way that Dune tried to protect her from any harm. 


Infinityglass seemed to have the most action then all other books in the series. Not just that but it had a lot of twists that I didn’t see coming, keeping the novel even more interesting. For instance, I would never figured out that Infinityglass be a person, all that time I was positive that it was a thing, I was surprised as I was. Also I had no idea how Evil Hallie’s mother was till they met up, were fighting. 


This been one fun adventure, the series. One of my favorite time travel books. Series that will keep you on edge of your seat.

GOODREADS SUMMARY 
 
A week ago, Dinah’s cousin Claire cut her wrists. 

Five days ago, Dinah found Claire’s diary and discovered why. 

Three days ago, Dinah stopped crying and came up with a plan. 

Two days ago, she ditched her piercings and bleached the black dye from her hair. 

Yesterday, knee socks and uniform plaid became a predator’s camouflage. 

Today, she’ll find the boy who broke Claire. 

By tomorrow, he’ll wish he were dead. 
 
Wow, Premeditated was one of most intense novels that I read this year. There was action in every page; every chapter that got reader to wonder what was going happen next. There wasn’t a single moment where I wasn’t on edge on my seat, where I wasn’t curious what Dinah do next, for revenge. Now that’s real love, friendship right there, that she would go as far, to make sure that guy who broke Claire will pay. Though I did think she went bit far but at the same time I knew where she was coming from. Somebody hurt her family, so she wanted to make sure that they pay, to show that nobody messes with her family. All through book I was left wondering if she succeed, and if Claire would recover from her suicide attempt. 


Brooks & Dex : Honestly, I had a hard time accepting that Brooks would do something, to hurt Claire. It was mostly because of his attitude, way that he acted with Dinah but at the same time, I knew that it all could be act. The same act that he put up with Claire before he hurt her. Yet there was something in back of my mind, telling me that something wasn’t right, that Brooks couldn’t possibly hurt Claire. He seemed to nice, to hurt anyone. Now Dex, I had a feeling that something was off about him, especially way he grabbed Dinah that one time, how violent he was towards her. I was suspicious right them, I don’t know how she didn’t see that. Of course I never thought he would end up using his best friend’s name as ‘Fake name’. I was glad that he was finally caught, before he hurt anyone else. 


I did hope that somehow in books, that Claire would recover. Though she was in coma through most of book, I felt sad when she died. The emotions in this book when it happened, how Dinah reacted to it, were so real that I found myself crying too. I wanted to pull her into a hug, she looked so hurt, so heartbroken. I think it’s because of that, that everything came out at funeral. I just wish that she figured out earlier that it was Dex. Now I don’t think the friendship would be same like it was, not after what happened, to everything she confessed to. However I feel like she finally got some closure in the end, a weight lifted off her shoulders.
If you love action, mystery. 

This is the type of book that will keep you on edge of your seat till the end.

GOODREADS SUMMARY
Ira Levinson is in trouble. At ninety-one years old, in poor health and alone in the world, he finds himself stranded on an isolated embankment after a car crash. Suffering multiple injuries, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes and comes into focus beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together – how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can’t possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage. 

A few miles away, at a local rodeo, a Wake Forest College senior’s life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school. Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward -- even life and death – loom large in everyday life. As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans -- a future that Luke has the power to rewrite . . . if the secret he’s keeping doesn’t destroy it first. 

Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart. 

 
Like his other novels, The Longest Ride took my breath away and in process has become one of my favorites. This novel was slightly different than ones that he had written through the years. The Longest Ride was focused on two different couples. Ira and Ruth and Sophia and Luke. While Ruth and Ira are reliving, remembering their lives together, Sophia and Luke starting one together. I saw how different their lives were, and how each one of them had a hard time letting something go. Each couple fascinated me, had me curious how it all was going to end. I felt connected to them all, even Ruth though she wasn’t really there. 


Luke, Sophia & Ira, Ruth : Ira & Ruth’s story started a bit slow for me, but it picked up fast and once it did, I found myself smiling, crying at some parts. I found myself afraid for Ira, I was afraid that nobody would find him and he would die in that car. Because of their age, and their love for one another for so many years, it reminded me a lot of my grandparents who were married for many years. Just the way that Ira and Ruth loved each other, reminded me of them. I believe that it was because of Ruth, that Ira lasted till Luke and Sophia found him. What made this a bit different, is that most of their story was told through their conversations with one another, instead of descriptions. It made it seem even more real, more realistic to me. Ruth is what kept him on hanging on. I was sad when he did die, but at same glad that he got to be with her again. Now Luke and Sophia, I was fascinated with their story right from start. At first, I did feel like that maybe Luke was more of rebound relationship for Sophia, considering how upset she was about Brian, up till she met Luke. It did feel that maybe she was going too fast. Then I saw how she acted around him, I could tell that she loved him. I was happy to see her with someone who loved her for who she was. I was afraid as Sophia was when I found about the secret Luke been keeping, I was sure that something bad was going happen. I felt afraid for him, when he went riding again, and hoped that he would change his mind. Hoped that they would end up back together. I never imagined that it would be Luke and Sophia who would find Ira, and how important he will become to both of them. 


Loved how country like this novel was. Horseback, farm and bull riding. I always loved any novels that had do with country, especially western. The Longest Ride was like that, even if it took place in North Carolina. That’s one of things that made this novel different. I have a close friend who done bull riding and I learned so much more about, through the novel. I could picture it, I could see how terrifying it must been for him. For his mom, who was afraid every second for her son. Even I felt afraid for Luke, I was hoping that he would give up and quit. The Longest Ride seemed to have much more drama, more action and every page kept your attention, kept you on reading till you reached the end. 


I been a fan of Sparks since I was 17 years old, and since then there hasn’t been single book I didn’t enjoy. I know that he’ll be my favorite for years to come. The Longest Ride is another great addition. If you a Sparks fan, it’s a book you won’t regret picking up.

GOODREADS SUMMARY
The funniest book about heartbreak you will ever read. Sometimes a single sentence can change your life. "There's been an accident." "We need to talk." Or, in the case of Sara, a mother of four getting ready for a dinner party she's hosting for her husband's boss, the almost offhand admission from her husband that he's having an affair. Sara is a film director (when she can get the work), and when her life becomes overwhelming, she slips into a cinematic world in her head. 

The novel becomes a script with Sara its star - an action hero drop kicking the other woman, or crawling across a table at a dinner party to slash her husband's cheek. It's her mental escape when life runs off the rails. But soon her awkward, awful and often hilarious attempts to patch up the marriage make her real life feel something like a movie - one with a private detective, cold revenge, and eventually . . . handsome new leading men. 

Each chapter is named after one of the old films from the 40's and 50's - the ones where the villains are punished and everyone lives happily ever after. Soon Sara learns that Woody Allen's line, "life is - complicated" is more apt. As she is challenged by life, her taste in film becomes more contempory.

 
I wasn’t sure how much I would like this novel. Cover and the title was what grabbed my attention first, more cover then the title. By looking at the cover, I had a feeling that it would be something with humor in it. Summary on the other end, didn’t seem to grab my interest that much, so I didn’t think I would like it that much. The book did start out bit slow for me, and it took couple chapters till I got interested, it seemed like it dragged on at start. Once it picked up, it was pretty entraitaining and i wanted keep on reading it, to see what happens next. I was glad that I gave it a chance; it was different from other books I read. I know that this book is supposed be about heartbreak, but what made it unique was the humor that was added to it. 


Sara: I loved her from the start, I mostly liked her sense of humor, though I knew that she was hurting. I enjoyed the scripts she came up with, despite the difficult situation that she was going through at time. To me, she seemed strong even if at times it didn’t look like it. If I were in her situation, I wouldn’t be able to handle it and with four kids to raise. I didn’t understand why she wanted to stay with him, she should walked away from him when she found out. I guessed that maybe she stayed with him because of kids, or because she refused to believe the situation. I didn’t think she ever get over him, she was pretty heartbroken when he moved out. In a way it was a good thing that he did, because eventually she did start moving on, while comforting her kids at the same time. Considering her situation, she handled it well. Most of time. 


I loved her friends; they reminded me of my best friends. They were supportive, and there for her each step of the way. That’s a real friendship right there. I don’t think she would handle it as well, if it wasn’t for them. I loved the descriptions in this book, they were so vivid, it made everything seemed so real, realistic. It’s one of things that kept me on reading. 

Chick Flick Is funny, heartbreaking and worth checking out.

GOODREADS SUMMARY
Since she'd been on the outside, she'd survived an Aether storm, she'd had a knife held to her throat, and she'd seen men murdered. 

This was worse. 

Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland--known as The Death Shop--are slim. If the cannibals don't get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She's been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He's wild--a savage--and her only hope of staying alive. 

A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile--everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria's help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.
 


Is it me or does Dystopian books I been reading lately get better? Because ones that I read this year so far been amazing. I wouldn’t be able to pick favorite between the two. First, I loved the title of this one : Under The Never Sky , it’s actually what grabbed my attention from the start, it had me wonder what it is about. Both the cover and the title has the reader wondering. Before I even picked the book up, I had feeling that it was going be an adventure book, just by looking at the cover. It tells a bit of story, you can tell that the girl in cover will set on some sort of journey. That’s what it ended up being, a journey of survival and wasn’t what I expected. It was better. Unique. 


Adventure : I love novels that deal with adventure, especially survival novels. There is always something going on and you find yourself rooting for the character. In a way, this was a bit like Hunger Games but with different twist. Under The Never Sky, Aria was on her own, she was forced out before she even knew what was going on. I was rooting for her all the way. Though at times it might not seemed like it, she was strong, she gone through so much. I don’t think I would made it as far as she did. Even if she had Perry to help her too when needed, she didn’t give up. I saw how much she changed by end of the book. Aria was stronger, more independent. The descriptions of everything that happened, it was so vivid. I could see myself going through all obstacles with them. It felt real. Every scene, had me crave for more, and made me wonder if they are going make it till the end. 

Aria & Perry : How can you not love them? At start when Perry and Aria first came across each other, I didn’t like Perry of because how he treated her. As book progressed, he grew on me. At first I didn’t see Perry and Aria together because how different they were, the fact that they both seemed to despise one another. While their adventure progressed, I noticed how both of them started to care for each other, even if they wouldn’t admit it at first. Otherwise why would Perry come to her rescue, 3 times? First I had feeling he was using her, just to get what he wanted. Then I saw how he started acting around her. It made me sad at end when he realized that she isn’t coming out, it’s when I knew that he’s in love with her. I am eager to see how he react, when she will come back to him. I am hoping that their reunion be a happy one. I enjoyed reading book from both of their point of views, you got to know each character more, to connect with both of them. By end of the book, I loved them both. 

Ending is making me wish I had second book. I need to know what’s going to happen next. With cliffhanger like that? It’s a series I see myself f reading multiple times in future. I heard there is going be a movie, it will be one amazing movie. I can now see why others are talking about this book. I read this book in 2 days because I couldn’t force myself to put it down. Under The Never Sky is one book I was glad that I checked out. It’s filled with passion, adventure, friendship and trust.

GOODREADS SUMMARY
In this sequel to OF POSEIDON, Emma has just learned that her mother is a long-lost Poseidon princess, and now struggles with an identity crisis: As a Half-Breed, she’s a freak in the human world and an abomination in the Syrena realm below. Syrena law states that all Half- Breeds should be put to death. 

As if that’s not bad enough, her mother’s reappearance among the Syrena turns the two kingdoms—Poseidon and Triton—against one another. Which leaves Emma with a decision to make: Should she comply with Galen’s request to keep herself safe and just hope for the best? Or should she risk it all and reveal herself—and her Gift—to save a people she’s never known? 

 
I am in love with this series. There wasn’t a single moment in the book that was boring. If it wasn’t for work, I would have finished this book much faster. Of Triton, I love the titles for these books, along with the covers, they are colorful and eye catching. Even if I didn’t read the first book, I would pick up this one because of the cover, and the summary. Of Triton was more action packed then the first one, it was more attention grabbing and every scene, page had me crave for more. 


Emma is my favorite in the book. Most books I read, there is always character who seems to be rescued by a guy. Not Emma, she is her own character. Strong, Smart and most of the time she won’t let guys get her out of tough situation. I love fact that she wouldn’t let anyone take advantage of her as well. Even if they are royal. Unexpected twists, that’s what kept this book even more interesting, there was always something unexpected that I did not see coming. 


Love Mermaids? With adventure and romance? Then pick up your copy today. I’m curious to see what happens in the next addition to the series? If there is going be even more challenges for everyone to face. I am curious to see how all this will come to end.
