Some books on my radar to read soon are:
- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
- Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler
- Twisted (The new Pretty Little Liars book!!!) by Sara Shepard
Suddenly, Maddie feels something awakening inside her—a feeling that maybe there is a different, better way to live. But with society and her parents telling her otherwise, Maddie is going to have to learn to stand up for herself if she wants to change the path her life is taking.
In this not-so-brave new world, two young people struggle to carve out their own space.
This looks really good and mysterious. It reminds me of the movie 50 First Dates, where she has memory loss and has to relive the same day over and over. Any thoughts on this book?
Summary: Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her whole world disappears. In the morning, all that's left is a note telling her about a day she can't remember. The whole scenario doesn't exactly make high school or dating that hot guy whose name she can't seem to recall any easier. But when London starts experiencing disturbing visions she can't make sense of, she realizes it's time to learn a little more about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.
Summary: Johnny’s not your average hero. But a little magic changes everything. There isn’t a fairy godmother or any of that. It all starts with a curse. And a frognapping. And one hot-looking princess. And before Johnny knows it, he is on a mission in the Everglades, with only a flock of swans and a talking fox named Joe to help guide him against the forces of an evil witch.
Review: This was a pretty entertaining book. I am a fan of Alex Flinn's books, so this book didn't disappoint much.
Johnny works at a shop repairing shoes. He doesn't make much, so he is poor. When Princess Victoriana shows up offering him a reward for finding her long lost brother (who had turned into a frog), Johnny accepts the offer and goes on a search. A bit into the journey, Johnny's best friend, Meg, comes and helps him. Along the way they encounter a talking fox, swans, and an evil witch trying to stop them in their tracks.
Before Johnny leaves for his journey, the princess gives him a magical cloak. The cloak can transport him anywhere he wants to go. The thing is, he has to be specific about where he wants to go. Otherwise he might end up in the middle of the road. This makes me wish that I had a magical cloak!
I wan't a huge fan of this book. Don't get me wrong, It was still pretty good. It was just too fantasy for me. I like a little bit of fantasy, like Alex Flinn's other books Beastly and A Kiss In Time. The good thing, is that it was written well, so it wasn't hard to follow.
If you like fantasy, then I would recommend reading this book. I thought the romance was super cute. I gave this book three and a half coffee cups. It was a decent book.
Summary: When high school junior Natalie--or Dr. Aphrodite, as she calls herself when writing the relationship column for her school paper--is accused of knowing nothing about guys and giving girls bad relationship advice, she decides to investigate what guys really think and want. But the guys in her class won't give her straight or serious answers. The only solution? Disguising herself as a guy and spending a week at Underwood Academy, the private all-boy boarding school in town. There she learns a lot about guys and girls in ways she never expected--especially when she falls for her dreamy roommate, Emilio. How can she show him she likes him without blowing her cover
Review: This book was really good! It made me laugh. It was so funny at times!
Natalie was trying to get an inside scoop on boys and how they think for her school newspaper, but she couldn't get any information out of the guys when they knew her as a girl. So she decided to go undercover--as a boy--to an all boys school. Calling herself "Nat" and chopping her hair off, she was able to convince the boys that she was one of them.
This reminded me a lot of the movie She's The Man. But it was also a bit different.
There was some tender moments between Natalie (as Nat) and her roommate Emilio. I found myself cheering for them saying in my head "kiss him! kiss him!" then I remembered that Emilio didn't know that she was a girl, and that would be quite awkward.
I always thought it would be fun to pretend to be a guy for a while. But I don't think I could do it for more than a day! Natalie held out for an entire week. It wasn't very easy. She had lots of troubles and made many mistakes. She even had to put some of her friendships on the line to keep her cover.
I gave this book four coffee cups. It was really good. I enjoyed reading it. I would recommend reading this book. It's a fun, interesting book with some romance.
