   I found this to be a gorgeous summer beach read, I couldn't put it down until it was over!

   I need other Kasie West novels, the wait is agonizing!

   Everything felt very realistic, and probably I needed that around the time, I was reading many supernatural paranormal books, so this was a large change for my atmosphere.

    Xander was delicious, not that I ate him. :)  But I loved that it was rich boy against poor girl. That was really cute and I liked how Caynen didn't want anything from Xander, especially for him to spoil her proudly.


Tilt, by Ellen Hopkins

    I guess I would have to say that this novel was more of a coming of age novel, like you have to understand some things about people's lives before you read this book, definitely.

   I loved how Ellen Hopkins created this out of another of her adult novels, Triangles, and how everyone is related in some way and how they all have some teenage problems. Also, how it's written in poetic form is excellent, I love reading those type of novels.

   I enjoyed reading Mikayla's and Harley's story the most, maybe because they're girls, I don't know. They just seem like very interesting people who have very interesting stories. I don't know if I would recommend this novel to someone else, mainly because it wasn't what I thought it would be and wasn't super interesting all the way through, but you could say that it was pretty enjoyable when you think about it, I have mixed feelings.

Eternity, by Elizabeth Miles

Title: Eternity

Author: Elizabeth Miles

Rating: 4/5 stars

Release Date: September 3, 2013

Publisher: Simon Pulse

Format: Paperback Edition

Goodreads Average Rating: 4.03

    This is the moment that we've all been waiting for, to find out the destiny of the Furies and what will happen to the rest of the characters in the end.

    I'm a little disappointed that the series has ended, the Furies are something that I've never read about, and now it's all over. I can't wait to see what else Elizabeth Miles has in store for us! But it left us off at a good ending, so I can't complain.

    Great, but come on, the first was the best.


Envy, by Elizabeth Miles

Title: Envy

Author: Elizabeth Miles

Rating: 4/5 stars

Release Date: September 4, 2012

Publisher: Simon Pulse

Format: Hardcover Edition

Goodreads Average Rating: 3.90

Age Group: 11+

      After reading Fury in February, I just couldn't wait to read the sequel, Envy. I probably would've read it right then if I had it.

      Envy wasn't as good as the first. I guess I would have liked it better if all of the old characters were there, but the ending was fine in the first one. I mean, it was so unpredictable, I never saw that coming, if you know what I mean. :)

       So now, Elizabeth Miles has introduced us to a new character in Ascension, Maine, which is Ms. Skylar McVoy, who is determined to make new friends and forget about where her mother may be. But of course, to create a twist, the Furies have to get into this, and we all know that they are up to something, and that person might be Skylar, or just Emily as usual.

       I enjoy reading Elizabeth Miles' books because they always leave you hanging, leaving you wanting to find out what will happen next to the exquisite characters.



Poison Princess, by Kresley Cole

Title: Poison Princess

Author: Kresley Cole

Rating: 3/5 stars

Release Date: October 2, 2012

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

  Hey, sorry that there's no photo, Blogger is going mad, literally. :)

   I expected Poison Princess to be much better, all that I was looking for was a new dystopian read, but I just got something... else.

   Evie Greene is beginning to hallucinate, and the only person that she could turn to is Jack Deveaux, a classmate that's a bad boy. Evie finds out that she's not the only one with these type of powers, there's another twenty two. Jack and Evie are about to find many unexpected things...

    Like I said, it could've been better, but it still was enjoyable. I mean I liked Evie, I thought that she was a good and likeable character, but I really disliked Jack. I found him to be a stuck-up snob that girls probably won't even fall for as much as the author really wants them to. 

     I probably will not pick up the sequel, but it still was a good read.
