Thirteen Reasons Why Review

Hey guys!

I finished Thirteen Reasons Why last night. Here is the review. Oh and remember, SPOILER ALERT! ^_^

Thirteen Reasons Why was a great book. I loved it.
I feel so bad for Clay. (view spoiler)[I mean he was waiting to hear what he did wrong, but he didn't do anything wrong. HANNAH PUSHED HIM AWAY! It wasn't fair to put him in that position. At least she apologized... Not that good of an apology but still is one. I cried when I read his... Casette 5, side A...
The other people were also pretty mean. Peeping Tom, raping, lying, etc... People can be pretty bad.
Hannah isn't very nice either. Sending, these tapes around. I'd hate to be one of the people on those tapes causing her to kill herself.

Did this book reach my high expectations? Yes, it did.
Would I recommend this book? Yeah. I would.

Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything. . . affects everything.”

Mockingjay Review

Hey guys!

I just finished Mockingjay! Woot! Woot! So now the I finished the Hunger Games series. In a few moments a horrid wave of sadness will wash over me over finishing it. Anyways, here is the review anyways:

This was great just like the other stories. I'll say that this was a bit better than the second, but it was still worse than the first book.
I loved the ending of the story. It's so sweet. Peeta and Katniss end up together. I love Peeta! :D
The epilogue was very surprising. I hadn't expected her to ever agree to have children. It's so adorable the children dancing the meadow. It makes so much sense with the song:
"Deep in the meadow, under the willow
A bed of grass, a soft green pillow
Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes
And when again they open the sun will rise.
Here it's safe, here's warm
Here the daisys guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet, and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you."

I really love that song. It's so sad.
Did this book reach my high expectations? Yes it did, but barely passed.
Would I recommend this book? Yes I would.

'Kay, bye!

Die For Me Review

Hey guys!

I know I finished Die For Me in March, but I just did the review, so here it is! :D

This book was amazing! At first I thought it was a stand alone book, but when I heard it was the first in a series I got so giddy and even started jumping up and down. :P
Kate is such a brave character! I would freak out when Vincent asked if he could go into her mind. I mean, I could go insane with having to people in my body! And what if he got stuck in there?! That'd be awful. Also she so strong! That guy could've killed her. He could've sliced her arm off! I wouldn't be sword fighting with him, I'd probably be hugging myself on the floor while sobbing in pain next to my sister.
Vincent is so sweet. He was so kind to Kate and always supported her. And he wouldn't hold her back from leaving him. Most men (that I know of) probably wouldn't do that. He knew that she was the only one who could decide what was the best for herself and wouldn't stop her from trying to not break down.
Jules is a hilarious person. I love how he always flirts with Kate. He's also pretty brave, if I do say so myself. Well all of the revenants are. I don't think I would be able to jump infront of train to save someone, even if I were a revenant. I don't think I'd be able to handle the pain of dieing over and over. Plus being in dormant mode would probably freak me out. I have to stay in my own body! :P
The story was excellent. While reading it, I thought it was going to be just another romance story. But I knew something was off about that. Paranormal romance always has something like this happen. I got so excited when the mess started. I was like yay! It's not just a boring romance novel! Woohoo! But before the whole mess, it wasn't that boring. It was still fun. This just made it more fun and better and stuff...
Did this book reach my high expectations? You bet it did!
Would I recommend this book? Yep! To all you romance, paranormal readers why not read this! I'm telling you, you'll enjoy it! :D

Dragon's Oath Review

Hey guys!

I finished Dragon's Oath last night and quickly wrote a review. Here it is:

I loved Dragon's Oath and am now roaming the stores in search for the next novella, Destined.
The story was short, sweet, sad, and filled with love. I have to admit in some parts it made me want to cry, but just didn't bring the tears to my eyes.
Dragon is a sweet, arrogant young man. He is very loyal. I hope he does avenge Anastasia's death.
Anastasia was a young, beautiful, smart priestess. She was great at her spells. I think it was unfair for her to have died.
From the beginning you  knew they were meant to be together. It is sad that they could only truely be together for what? An hour or so? It fills my heart with despair. I understand Dragon's anger towards the godess, Nyx.
Biddle is truely an evil person. Not only did he terrorize young students but, he also tried to kill Anastasia. However before he tried kill her, he planed on <i>rapping</i> her! It is utterly disgusting! I cannot believe there are actually people out there like him.
And that creature that Biddle held captive! He was awful! Drinking the blood of a person and taking their energy, therefore gaining evil power?! Snake/snake like creatures always tend to be evil.
I'd like to congratulate P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast for creat such a remarkable story with excellent characters.
Did this story reach my high expectations? It most definetly did. It is one of my favorite books I've read! At firstg I had thought it was about a dragon. Don't be fooled by the name as well! Dragon is the name of one of the main characters.
Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would! To all you paranormal, magic, romance, or vampire book lovers, drop your current books and pick this one up! I can assure you, you won't be dissapointed or regret it. It is fantastic!

Okay. That's all! Be seeing ya!

Catching Fire review

Hey guys!

As you know a few days ago I finished the book Catching Fire. :) I'm sorry it took this long, but here is the reveiw for it:

That was a big surprise when Peeta announced Katniss's pregnancy. But it was a great idea, since she gain a lot more publicity. It was funny when Peeta asked "Quick, is there anything I need to apologize about?" He is such a nice man.
The cliffhanger isn't as good as the first book. It didn't make me want to run and grab the next book as much as the other book did. This one didn't leave as strong of an impression. I felt that I could last a few days before the next book, while the other I couldn't stand the long minutes that were ticking by before I could reach this book.
This book turned me even more against Snow than I already was. For the characters Suzanne did a great job just as she did for the first book.
All things considered I think it was worse than the first book altogether.
Did this book reach my high expectations? Sadly it didn't. Almost did. Just needs a few tweaks then it would barely have made it.
Would I recommend this book? Yes, even though to me it wasn't as great of a book as the first, I'd still recommend it. After all it is still a great book in an amazing series.

Well there you have it! See you!
