SUMMARY

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try.

Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.

But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.-Goodreads

Absolutely out of word to describe this book. It was amazing<3<3

Eliza Mirk is one of the few characters that I can connect with very well. I, too hated face-to-face conversation, like her but when it comes to online things, I was the exact opposite. I had always feels uneasy whenever I was told to came out of my shell and I’m so glad that I found and had the opportunity to read this book, which gave me a lot of strength. It was great and motivating to meet such an inspiring and interesting character.

Is it too much to ask that no one speak to me in the morning? I have just enough energy in my mouth to eat delicious eggs; there’s non left to form words. Not to mention that in twenty minutes I have to get in my car to go to school for seven hours, where I’m sure plenty of talking will happen, whether I like it or not.

Like what is being mentioned in the summary, Eliza is a shy and introverted (?) kind of girl in school. But no ones know that she is the famous webcomic’s creator, the lady constellation..And I guess that constrast is one of the most important things that make Eliza stood out in the story.

The plot was way too perfect and I had the exactly same feeling when I first read Harry Potter. The kind of feeling where I feel that I had to take a break because of the fear that no book can ever compete with this one.

HAPPY READING EVERYONE!!!

My rating:★

When “Perfect” Parker Fadley starts drinking at school and failing her classes, all of St. Peter’s High goes on alert. How has the cheerleading captain, girlfriend of the most popular guy in school, consummate teacher’s pet, and future valedictorian fallen so far from grace?

Parker doesn’t want to talk about it. She’d just like to be left alone, to disappear, to be ignored. But her parents have placed her on suicide watch and her conselors are demanding the truth. Worse, there’s a nice guy falling in love with her and he’s making her feel things again when she’d really rather not be feeling anything at all.

Nobody would have guessed she’d turn out like this. But nobody knows the truth.

Something horrible has happened, and it just might be her fault.-Goodreads

Imagine four years.

Four years, two suicides, one death, one rape, two pregnancies (one abortion), three overdoses, countless drunken antics, pantsings, spilled food, theft, fights, broken limbs, turf wars-everyday, a turf war-six months until graduation and no one gets a medal when they get out. But everything you do here counts. 

High school. Continue reading “Review: Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers”

SUMMARY

“Anger-management issues.”

Rating:★★★★★

SUMMARY

What does it mean when your school is voted the most dangerous in America? It’s time to kick some hellion butt…

After not really surviving her junior year (does “undead” count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She’s going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.

But then she meets Wrath and understands that she’s closer to the edge than she’s ever been. And when one more person close to her is taken, Kaylee realizes she can’t save everyone she loves without risking everything she has….

MY REVIEW

I used to hate the fact that my world is built on half-truths, held together by white lies. My life itself is an illusion requiring constant effort to maintain. I lie better than almost anyone I’ve ever met. But if I know the truth about anything, it’s this: when people say the devil in the details, they have no idea how right they are.

THE FEELING WHEN YOU COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT YOU HAD JUST FINISH THE WHOLE SERIES…

SUMMARY

I died on a Thursday— killed by a monster intent on stealing my soul.

The good news? He didn’t get it.

The bad news? Turns out not even death will get you out of high school…

Covering up her own murder was one thing, but faking life is much harder than Kaylee Cavanaugh expected. After weeks spent “recovering,” she’s back in school, fighting to stay visible to the human world, struggling to fit in with her friends and planning time alone with her new reaper boyfriend.

But to earn her keep in the human world, Kaylee must reclaim stolen souls, and when her first assignment brings her face-to-face with an old foe, she knows the game has changed. Her immortal status won’t keep her safe. And this time Kaylee isn’t just gambling with her own life…. -Goodreads

MY REVIEW

OMG, this is superb!

The plot and setting was amazing and everything was unexpected. Have to admit, I was caught off guard a couple of time.😆

SPoilers!!

“You don’t eat.  You hardly ever talk anymore and I haven’t seen you watch TV or pick up a book in days. I walk into your room, and half the time you’re not there, even when you are there. “

In this book, Kaylee was struggling to get used to being dead but in the mean time, bad things started to come at her, again.

Dead people coming back is one of the biggest twist in this book and the appearance of hellions in the human world was definitely mysterious and unpredictable.

His eyes had only focused on me for a second.  And as grateful and I was that Alec didn’t suffer for long, I hated it that the last thing he saw and knew–was that he’d been murdered by a friend..loop

The saddest part is when Alec dies and Kaylee feeling guilty because somehow, she was a big part behind it, not purposely though. And because of that, she was both sad and furious about everything,mostly about Avari,the hellion of greed.

Back to the point, how can dead people appear in the human world and why does the hellion keep appearing in human form? Guess I’ll leave that to you😂Have a great day~

Then Lydia opened her eyes. They weren’t blue,like they should have been. They were brown. Emma-brown.

P. S. Emma kind of stuck in Lydia’s body, wanna know why, go pick it out😝

🐾HAPPY READING EVERYONE!! 🐾

SUMMARY

The entire school’s talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee’s no ordinary high-school junior. She’s a banshee—she screams when someone dies.

But the next scream might be for Kaylee.

Yeah—it’s a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee’s going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend’s needy ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren’t quite human, either.

But Kaylee’s borrowed lifeline is nearing its end. And those who care about her will do anything to save her life.

Anything.-Goodreads

I used to think death was the worst thing that could happen to a person. 

I also used to think it was the last thing that could happen. But if I’ve learned anything from surrounding myself with reapers, and living nightmares, and my fellow bean sidhes, it’s this: I was wrong on both counts… Continue reading “Review: If I Die (Soul Screamers #5) by Rachel Vincent”

SUMMARY

Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can’t just pretend nothing happened. But “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.

See, Sabine isn’t just an ordinary girl. She’s a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people’s fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.

And Sabine isn’t above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.-Goodreads

Sabine watched Nash like he was the only flicker of light in a very,very dark place. 

Nash looked at Sabine like she was some complicated puzzle he was trying to solve, and I knew that look. He;d looked at me that way the first time he saw me sing for someone’s soul, before I knew I was a bean sidhe. He’d looked at me like that when I was the damsel he felt honor-bound to save from distress, whether I needed saving or not. 

I used to love that look. 

Now I hated it. Continue reading “Review: My Soul to Steal (Soul Screamers #4) by Rachel Vincent”
