Review: Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry

Cover Source:
Title: Pushing The Limits
Author: Katie McGarry
Series: Pushing The Limits #1
Version Reviewed: ARC, eBook.

GoodReads Summary:
No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with freaky scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.
But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.
Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.
I had seen this book circling around the blogosphere quite a lot so when I saw it on NetGalley, I had to request it.

As soon as I began reading it I was sucked in. I had to figure out what happened to Echo and desperately needed to learn more about Noah. (I've come to the conclusion that if a character is named Noah, I almost always love them). This book pulled me into it's pages and didn't let go until I was finished. I literally read it in one day.

The storyline and characters were amazing and easy to fall in love with, very realistic and had me almost tearing up in a few spots. I knew right away that I was going to love this book and I was not wrong.

This is a book that I wouldn't hesitate to read again. I absolutely loved it.

Favorite Character: Noah.
Rating: 4 Stars.

Review: Doctor Who Season One

Cover Source:

Title: Doctor Who Season 1
Year: 2006
Main Cast: Christopher Eccleston, Billie Piper
Version Reviewed: Netflix Streaming.

Amazon Summary:
Christopher Eccleston's Doctor is wise and funny, cheeky and brave. An alien and a loner, his detached logic gives him a vital edge when the world's in danger. But when it comes to human relationships, he can be found wanting. That's why he needs Rose. From the moment they meet, the Doctor and Rose understand and complement each other. As they travel together through time, encountering new adversaries, the Doctor shows her things beyond imagination.

Okay, so I admit that I never even wanted to watch Doctor Who.  The whole "scifi" genre really isn't my thing and I've always seen Doctor Who as sci-fi.  While in high school, one of my friends and her family were really into the show and I had seen bits and pieces, though I never really paid it any attention.

This past February/March, my husband decided that, since he'd heard good things about the show, he'd give it a try.  It was something he would usually like, so why not.  He tried everything in his power to get me to watch it with him and I always refused, "knowing" that I wouldn't like it and telling him that it just wasn't my thing. I can't deny that I occasionally got sucked into it.  I would be on my computer or doing whatever and it was almost impossible for me to keep my eyes away from the TV.

No joke, this is my lockscreen.  I also
have a Doctor Who ringtone.
Long after my husband got up to date on all the current episodes, I finally admitted to him that I had liked what I had seen of the show.  I couldn't deny it any longer.  After watching the 50th Anniversary Special and The Day of The Doctor, it began driving me insane because I felt so out of the loop and I wanted to know everything that had happened up to that point.  So I decided to finally sit down and really watch the

This season for me was really good.  There were a lot of sci-fi-ish things in it but I found that, unlike other shows and movies, these don't really bother me because I'm so wrapped up in the storyline, the Doctor, Rose and everything that's going on between them.  The show has a lot of things to keep a person interested and is full of action, emotion and humor.

I think the only thing that really annoyed me was how often Rose was the cause of the Doctor's problems.  I mean, Father's Day.  It was a great episode, but jeesh.  Every single thing was her fault.  And she just had to touch the lone Dalek, regenerating it.  I probably would have chucked her out of the TARDIS ages ago.

Overall, I'm really enjoying the show and I hate the I rejected my husband's pleas so many times.  I feel bad that I'm now watching by myself and made him watch it on his own without my company.  But at least now I can share in his enthusiasm and we can talk about Doctor Who together.  :)

Favorite Episode:   The Empty Child.

Review: Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Title: Nightshade
Author: Andrea Cremer
Series: Nightshade #1
Version Reviewed: Finished, eBook.

GoodReads Summary:
Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything- including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?
Nightshade was one of those books that had been on my to read list for quite a while. I've seen so many reviews for it everywhere, most of which rated it highly, and it seemed like everyone was reading it, including my own little sister. When one of my friends got it, I had to borrow it.

When I first started reading it, I couldn't get into it at all. I mean, the characters and the story were really good, I just couldn't find that "wow factor" that everyone else had found. However, after finishing the book, I have to admit that it was pretty darn good. In my personal opinion, it wasn't as swoon worthy as everyone else thinks, but I can see why everyone feels that way. It's very well written and I even caught myself tearing up at one point. Oh, my favorite thing about this book? Ren Laroche. Yum.

Favorite Character: Ren.

Julie Preston is an artist. But her canvas isn’t paper or clay. It’s hair. She spends her days coloring, blow drying and styling her clients hair at the Razor’s Edge salon. Julie is also annoyed. She went out on a date and had a great time, gave the guy her number and the jerk never called.

Review: Moonlight and Oranges by Elise Stephens

Moonlight and Oranges
Cover Source: GoodReads
Title: Moonlight and Oranges
Author: Elise Stephens
Version Reviewed: Finished, Paperback

GoodReads Summary:
A timeless tale of young romance.
Lorona Connelly is ready for a change from her carefully planned, bookish life. When sparks fly at a costume party, she embraces a chance for romance with the handsome Kestrin Feather. However, she quickly realizes that even love and destiny may not be enough to overcome the reality of an overprotective mother-in-law and Kestrin's long, tarnished history of relationships.

When Lorona's curiosity leads her to Kestrin's journal, doubt plagues them both with insecurities and threatens the relationship. Can true love overcome the odds, or was their whirlwind romance just a frivolous crush? Author Elise Stephens shares a journey of young love, fate, and wounded trust in the story of Lorona and Kestrin, a couple who must learn to overcome their fears to share a life together.
I won this book in a giveaway a while back and I've been curious about it ever since.

this book is a modern retelling of Cupid and Psyche, a Greek myth, though in the book itself, you're kind of led to believe that it's a retelling of La Llorona, a Mexican legend.

I actually thought this book was pretty good. I was thrown off a little in the beginning by how fast everything went (and it went fast!) but the further I got into it, the better it seemed to get.

The writing was done well and the characters were easy to get into. There were a few mistakes in the book, however, which wouldn't be shocking if it were an ARC, but I was reading a finished copy.

Favorite Character: Lorona & Kestrin.

Review: Mystic City by Theo Lawrence

Mystic City (Mystic City, #1)
Cover Source: GoodReads
Title: Mystic City
Author: Theo Lawrence
Series: Mystic City #1
Version Reviewed: ARC, eBook

GoodReads Summary:
For fans of Matched, The Hunger Games, X-Men, and Blade Runner comes a tale of a magical city divided, a political rebellion ignited, and a love that was meant to last forever. Book One of the Mystic City Novels.
Aria Rose, youngest scion of one of Mystic City's two ruling rival families, finds herself betrothed to Thomas Foster, the son of her parents' sworn enemies. The union of the two will end the generations-long political feud—and unite all those living in the Aeries, the privileged upper reaches of the city, against the banished mystics who dwell below in the Depths. But Aria doesn't remember falling in love with Thomas; in fact, she wakes one day with huge gaps in her memory. And she can't conceive why her parents would have agreed to unite with the Fosters in the first place. Only when Aria meets Hunter, a gorgeous rebel mystic from the Depths, does she start to have glimmers of recollection—and to understand that he holds the key to unlocking her past. The choices she makes can save or doom the city—including herself.
When I first began reading this book, I could not, for the life of me, remember what it was about. So I was going into it blind. I was sucked into it in no time.

The book has a Romeo and Juliet quality to it. There is a big emphasis on love in the story, but it's done in a way that keeps you interested and wondering how everything will work out.

The only thing I didn't like was that one of the big "mysteries" in the book was really easy to figure out. For me, anyway.

I really enjoyed the book though and it's one that I could see as a really cool, futuristic action movie.

Favorite Character: Hunter & Turk.

Review: My Alien Parents by R.L. Stine

My Alien Parents
Cover Source: GoodReads
Title: My Alien Parents
Author: R.L. Stine
Version Reviewed: Finished, Paperback

GoodReads Summary:
I thought I knew everything there was to know about my parents, like what they always eat for breakfast. Then one morning, everything changes. Mom suddenly hates tea and loves cornflakes and Dad's scarfing down poached eggs like there's no tomorrow ? which, by the way, there may not be unless I can figure out what's gone wrong. Can it really be that Mom and Dad have been replaced by aliens from another world? And what the heck happened to our dog?

I absolutely love R.L. Stine. I always have. And even his short little kids books are not disappointing in my opinion.

I was excited when I pulled this book out of a box of what seemed like a million books that we had stored in our shed. I had no idea that it was there, but apparently my husband had been holding out on me.

This book reminded of Invasion of The Body Snatchers, if there were a kids version. And as it seemed, there was even a reference to the movie in My Alien Parents.

It was a very short book, but it still had the classic R.L. Stine twist at the end that you weren't expecting. Very reminiscent of the Goosebumps series.

I loved it!

Review: Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer

Midnight Sun (Twilight, #1.5)
Title: Midnight Sun
Author: Stephenie Meyer
Series: Twilight #1.5
Version Reviewed: Unfinished, eBook.

GoodReads Summary:
Midnight Sun is the much anticipated retelling of Twilight from Edward Cullen's perspective. An unedited partial draft was illegally leaked onto the internet in 2008; consequently, author Stephenie Meyer put the project on indefinite hold.

Shortly afterward, she posted a letter to her fans on her website including a link to the entire partial draft of the book so that those who wanted to read it could do so legally and with her consent.

*This is a re-read and review.

This is the second time that I have read Midnight Sun since Stephenie Meyer officially released it to the eyes of the readers. I'm a huge Twilight fan, so just like before, I'm amazed at the intricate workings of Edward's mind and how he witnesses and experiences the events and characters that we all know and have grown to love.

I so honestly wish that this book had no been ruined by it's unscheduled leak. Twilight, entirely in Edward's point of view, is a book that most Twilight fans have yearned for. I cannot express how badly I wish that Midnight Sun would have been finished.

If you are a Twilight fan (or even just an Edward fan) and you have (for some reason) not read Midnight Sun, then I highly recommend it to you. You finally get the chance to learn what the heck is going on inside his head, as well as more information about the world of Twilight and it's characters.

Review: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)
Cover Source: GoodReads
Title: Mockingjay
Author: Suzanne Collins
Series: The Hunger Games #3
Version Reviewed: Finished, Hardback

GoodReads Summary:
Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.
It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans -- except Katniss.
The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay -- no matter what the personal cost.
I literally just finished this book. And honestly...I'm practically speechless. I normally keep a little notebook with me while I read a book I'm going to review and I write down random points that I want to make in my reviews. Then, when I'm ready to write the review, I get my notebook, and I start to write about the different points I had picked. Things I liked and disliked about the book, or quotes that really stood out to me. When I finished Mockingjay, I started to go downstairs to retrieve my notebook from where I left it the night before. And then I stopped. I turned around and headed straight for my computer. I didn't even need the notebook. After turning that last page, everything I felt about the book was in my head and weighing on my heart. I didn't need a piece of paper to tell me how I felt about the last book in The Hunger Games Trilogy.

This book...Oh gosh. This book caught my attention and held it just as the previous two had. But with it being the third, I was even more eager to read faster and to learn and to see how these characters and the world around them was going to end up. There were moments in this book where I was giggling to myself, blinking rapidly because I could feel the sting of tears coming on, or cursing out loud because I was so angry with a situation that occuring or because a character had truly pissed me off. But don't get me wrong. That I was feeling such anger and frustration was not a bad thing. In reverse, it was very good. Because it was not the writing or the author that pissed me off, it was the story and the situation because I was so deeply involved in it that I felt like I was a part of it. Not many books can get that big of a reaction out of me.

I stayed up late reading this book, I disappeared into my bedroom in solitary confinement for hours, and when I wasn't reading Mockingjay, I was dying to get back to it. By the time I finished, I walked into the kitchen, laid the book on the table, and with a pouting face and teary eyes, I told my husband to go finish reading it.

The Hunger Games will forever be a trilogy that I will come back to. When I finish a series, I judge how great it was by my reaction when I finish the words on the very last page and sit the book down. If I'm still thinking about it thirty minutes to an hour later, wishing it didn't end, then it was amazing. Harry Potter was the only series that has made me feel this way. Until I finished The Hunger Games. This series will forever be on of my all time favorites and I cannot wait to delve right back in to Panem.

Review: Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver

Cover Source:
Title: Liesl & Po
Author: Lauren Oliver
Version Reviewed: ARC, Paperback

GoodReads Summary:
Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the shadows and the mice,until one night a ghost appears from the darkness. It is Po, who comes from the Other Side. Both Liesl and Po are lonely, but together they are less alone.
That same night, an alchemist's apprentice, Will, bungles an important delivery. He accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something decidedly less remarkable.
Will's mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po, and it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.
From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver comes a luminous and magnificent novel that glows with rare magic, ghostly wonders, and a true friendship that lights even the darkest of places.
I absolutely loved this book. It had been on my list for a while and I was ecstatic when Lauren Oliver sent me an ARC copy. It came in this amazing box that was decorated with the cover of the book. I couldn't wait for it to arrive and I hurried as fast as I could to dig into it. I was not disappointed.

As my husband and I lay down in bed the other night, we both pulled out a book and began to read. About a page in, he turns to me and proceeds to whine like a little kid because he wanted to read Liesl & Po first. I could not make this up. Finally he read his book and I continued on with mine. A few chapters in, I got up to go the restroom. When I came back, he had his nose stuck in my book and wouldn't give it back! It took forever to get it back from him, but I eventually did. And I read it quickly.

Liesl & Po is unlike anything I've read in a while. It's brilliant, amazing, full of emotion, and at times, laughter. It felt like I was reading a fairy tale. Only a very well thought out, extremely beautifully written, fresh fairytale. I have to admit that this book was so much better than I thought it was going to be. I mean, I knew it was going to be good, but I didn't know it was going to be this good. The inside if filled with beautiful, haunting words and equally as impressive illustrations. I loved everything about this book and it isdefinitely one that I will come back to in the future. On one hand I wish that this novel was the first in a series, but I believe if it were any more than just what it is, it would not be as amazing as it is.

My only regret is that this is the first Lauren Oliver book I have gotten my hands onto.

Review: Left To Die by Lisa Jackson

Cover Source:
Title: Left To Die
Author: Lisa Jackson
Series: To Die #1
Version Reviewed: Finished, Paperback

GoodReads Summary:
Nothing's More Terrifying. . .

One by one, the victims are carefully captured, toyed with, then subjected to a slow and agonizing death. Piece by piece, his exquisite plan takes shape. The police can't yet see the beauty in his work--but soon, very soon, they will. . . 
Than Being Left Alone. . . 
In the lonely woods around Grizzly Point, Montana, four bodies have been discovered. Detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli have been hoping for a career-making case, but this is a nightmare. Even with the FBI involved, Selena and Regan have nothing to go on but a killer's cryptic notes, and the unsettling knowledge that there is much worse to come. . . 
To Die. . . 
When Jillian Rivers opens her eyes, she's trapped in a mangled car. Then a stranger, claiming to be a trail guide named Zane McGregor, pries her free. Though she's grateful, something about him sets Jillian on edge. And if she knew what lay out there in the woods of Montana, she'd be truly terrified. Because someone is waiting... watching... poised to strike and make Jillian the next victim...
I was a little leery about this book at first. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. I do have to say that it starts off with a bang. There's no question to it. It lures you in and makes you want to find out who is doing all these horrible things.

There are numerous twists and turns and right when you think you have everything figured out, Lisa Jackson throws you for a loop and switches everything up until you're left clueless and wondering once again.

This book is so suspenseful and carefully planned out that you can't help but to continue.

It's a crazy ride I really want to get into the second book just so that I can figure out what happens after that insane cliff hanger that you're left with in the end.

Review: Just A Nice Guy by Phil Torcivia

Cover Source:
Title: Just A Nice Guy
Author Phil Torcivia
Version Reviewed: Finished, Paperback

GoodReads Summary:
Is it true that nice guys finish last? It sure seems that way as a divorced man fights his way through a comedic dating scene. Will he ever find his soul mate? Phil has been called the male version of Carrie Bradshaw. Enjoy his humorous essays about relationships and the struggles we all have finding and keeping lovers. Women appreciate his open view into the minds of men. Artist Mike Swaim adds to the hilarity with his brilliant sketches, giving another dimension to Phil's quest for love.
I have to say that this book was amazing and I can't wait to read more from Phil Torcivia. Not my normal kind of read, but it was hilarious and I enjoyed it immensly. And it was a quick read (or maybe I read fast?). Either way, I loved Just A Nice Guy.

This book is basically an insiders look on the dating scene, the hilarity of men and women looking for that one person that they want to spend their lives (or more realistically, their beds) with. We get a look at what really goes on inside a man's brain, and occasionally the woman's. Nothing held back.

This book is definitely not for younger readers. It is intended (and should be kept) as an adult read. It touches on everything from pets, "toys", sex, alcohol, what to do, what not to do, and everything in between, plus more. There's humor on practically every page, and the illustrations are graphic, amusing, and very well done.

This is definitely a book I will pull off my bookshelf and read again in the future. And my husband has already claimed rights on reading it next.

Phil Torcivia is an honest, raw, humorous author. And he does his job very well.
