Review

It's one of those stories that stay with you, that speak directly to your heart and change you a bit. It's book about friendship and love but also about loss and coping with being only survivor.

Shelby was a cheerleader and had a twin brother who played basketball. One night after returning from a game, they got into horrible accident and only Shelby survived. Even she didn't came out unscratched, her leg amputated below the knee. 

Road to recovery is long and when she is finally ready to go back to school, it gets very challenging. And then there is Sebastian, her brother's best friend and her biggest nemesis. They are always at each other throats, hilarity ensured. :) He is paying more and more attention to her. I love the dialogue between them, I was LOLing through the whole book. :) The best part of the book are the messages. Under the name Prince Charming someone is sending her cute messages (full of Disney princess references *swooning*).

It such a good story, I loved reading it, from the first till the last page. It's funny and swoony and just perfect. :)

Highly recommend it!

Happy reading,

Anie

Synopsis

Eve is used to being the odd woman out. As the only girl on her school's baseball team, she knows exactly how to put sweaty, macho baseball players in their place, and she's focused on one thing and one thing only—being the best pitcher she can be.

But when a freak accident forces her high school to be absorbed by the neighbouring town, Eve has to contend with a new group of guys who aren't used to having a woman on their team. And the new team's star pitcher, Jamie, has no interest in being ousted from his throne. He can't afford to give up his starting slot to a new pitcher—even worse, to a girl.

As the competition between Jamie and Eve starts to heat up, so does their attraction to each other. Can they keep their heads in the game, or will they end up getting played?


Review

I love this story so much… :)It’s one of those books that you can’t put down and I flew through it very fast.

Eve is very athletic and good at it. She is also extreme strong and independent, playing baseball with guys made her very tough. Because of fire in her school she had to move to another school and her team was combine with the team of that school. Incoming Jamie. He is star of the team and her direct competition. They butt head all the time. I love reading about the dynamic of their relationship. She is such a strong character, as strong as you get. And Jamie is player, but is also sensitive and sweet.

They are both very strong and stubborn. And the outcome is hilarious. But there is more than meets the eyes in bot of them, as the story progresses we learn about them, more and more. It’s not just a light story, it about life, friendship, love and finding balance. I just LOVED it … :) I re-read it almost right after I finished it… :)

Happy reading,

Anie

Synopsis

Ray Cross wasn’t a hero; he could die too easily. But some things are worth risking death... 

Ray Cross was born with a genetic disorder, resulting in a fragile body; his organs and blood vessels will rupture with any hard impact, so standing up to his best friend's controlling boyfriend could kill him. Ray's life in Midland, MI gets decimated when his parents reveal they are not his real parents and his real father, a king from a secret land hidden in the far north of Canada, is dying and wishes to meet his son. With his doctor and newly-met twin, Ray travels to the forgotten village of Yardis, where magic, myth, and corruption are abundant. But the longer Ray stays in the village learning the truth of his past and reconnecting with his father, King Vintras, the more he discovers an evil force threatening the king and his village. But there’s more than the king and a village tied to Yardis and Ray. He finds friendship and more from a band of brothers who are part witch, dragon, and healer. With new alliances and new abilities, Ray wars with himself on playing it safe or risking it all to save the ones he loves. 

Can Ray rise above his fragile disorder to become the hero for once in his life?

Review

Ray has already hard life, living with a disease like that is never easy. But he doesn't let it stop him for doing what is right for his friend.

One day his entire life changes, he find out that the parents he loves all his life aren't really his. His real dad is dying and wants to meet him. He sets out on journey full of mysteries, discovering who he is and where he came from.

I like the plot line and the story, but had hard time connecting to the story. It's not the books faults, it wasn't the right book for me, the chemistry wasn't there.

Happy reading,

Anie

I absolutely loved the story. I just flew through it in few hours and I loved every page of it. 

Megan gets in fight a lot, she gets very angry and just… has to fight. :) After she was suspended in school for yet another fight, she and her mother move in the middle of nowhere. Next day she is up to huge surprise, not only is she living there alone, there the town is little bit different and there is a reason she is there. 

I love all the mythology and all the magical creature, it’s so fun to read how so many different creatures live together. (I wish that the book was longer, so there would be more interaction with other). 

I love the friendships and romance, of course, it so sweet. :) Perfect mixture of magical school, creatures & action. :)

Highly recommend it to anyone who loves urban fantasy. 

Happy reading,

Received from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for honest review

Synopsis

After suffering a rare illness, straight-A student Cara Scotto struggles to deal with lingering side effects. Refusing to admit she can’t handle the disruptions in her otherwise normal life, she tries to move on and heal. 

Alexander DeMarsh is unhappy about returning to his small hometown for three weeks. He prefers living in the city, where he attends an elite boarding school far away from his overprotective parents. Sure, they have reason to worry about him. As a Generator, Alex’s body constantly manufactures supernatural energy that’s often difficult to control. 

Over winter break, Alex runs into Cara and picks up on the powers they share. Soon, he realizes Cara is the only person in the world who has any chance of understanding him. But first, he needs to find a way to draw out her supernatural abilities without revealing too many secrets of his own.

Review

Fire and Ice bring together two polar opposites. Alexander DeMarsh is insanely rich and unhappy on break from school. He has special super power, producing energy. And Cara, who had mysterious illness, of witch she still feels effects. She instantly peeks his interest, but he doesn't tell her why right away. Her illness might be something very different.

I loved the first part of the book, slowly uncovering secrets with Cara. She is very good character. In the second part I had trouble connecting to the story.

I wish there was more about the power itself in the book, it's very intriguing concept.

Happy reading,

Doesn’t really have to be a trilogy :( I want more Magnus Chase and Jack. :)Magnus Chase and The ship of the dead is my favourite in the trilogy. :)The story is amazing, more of the Norse mythology, more of Magnus and his friends, more action. I just flew through the story and the ending is perfect, although it’s just a tiny bit open ended (a girl can hope :))

Magnus and his friends sail with the ship all across the worlds, to challenge Loki and stop Ragnarok. Of course there are many obstacles on the way and all in not as strait forward.

Amazing book and amazing series. :)

Highly recommend it!
