Summary: In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky — taken by the Society to his certain death — only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.
Cassia’s quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander — who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia’s heart — change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.

Across the universe has become #1 on my top favorite books!To be honest when I first read about the plot I didn’t really want to read it. I’m not a huge fan of sci-fi novels, but this book had me wanting more from the very first page, literally.
The beginning of this book started out with Amy and her parents getting frozen, it was very detailed and I felt like I was witnessing the scene instead of only reading it. The whole scene was creepy and tense and I was hooked! While they’re frozen they are put into drawers in the wall, frozen till they reached another earth 301 years later. They only froze the important ones that would be useful when they reach earth.
What I loved about this book was the constant changing point of vews from Amy to Elder. It gave us more detailed and we get more information from them both. Whenever it would switch POV’s it creates more suspense, your just waiting to find out what happens next.
I loved Elder; his character was honest, sweet and sincere, nothing like the Eldest.For years Eldest had to teach Elder the way of the ship (Godspeed) but Elder doesn’t like the way he is treating the people. He’s supposed to be the leader of everyone, and instead he’s leading them into a web of lies. He knows Eldest is hiding things, he won’t tell him anything. Some of the things that Eldest did made me feel very sad for the people living there, it also made me want to deck the guy in the face.
The detail in the book was amazing, not only could I picture what the ship looked like I felt like I was there; the ship was so lifelike and amazing. If I had to live on a ship like that I would go ballistic. I would feel pretty claustrophobic, like Amy did.
The relationship between Elder and Amy was sincere. They didn’t take one look at each other and instantly think they were in love, they both thought of each other as intriguing and they wanted to get to know each other first before they made their assumptions. Also knowing that their relationship is forbidden was pretty cool to.
The only thing I didn’t like about this book was when they talked about the season. I realize it was important to the book and I really didn’t mind it at first but sometimes it was a little bit to detailed.
Although I guess if it wouldn’t be so detailed the readers wouldn’t get a clear picture of how crazy everything is.
I will recommend this book to everyone I know, the twists, the characters, the plot, even every little detail is worth reading!Now I have to wait a whole year to read the sequel to this book “A Million Suns”
Although Blessed is the last book in the series I did not feel satisfied. For starters I couldn’t get into this book. It was so long ago that I read the first one to this series that I kind of forgot what happened.Blessed picked up where tantalize left off.I thought it was kind of weird that this picks up after Tantalize when there was a whole other book in the middle there.
Blessed started off with Kieren leaving Quincie.I didn’t like how Kieren left, and that’s the last we heard about him till three quarters into the book. Although Quincie did think about him a couple of times throughout the book, it just wasn’t enough to satisfy me.
The book started out a little slow with Quincie hiring all new employees for her restaurant. The main point of half the book revolves around her restaurant and Bradley. Then Zachary wants to be hired to be a bus boy in the restaurant.
Zachary is Quincie’s guardian angel. Neither Zachary nor Quincie know why she has a guardian angel in the first place. She has no soul, she’s a vampire. I absolutely love Zachary’s character. I loved his character in Eternal and I love his character in Blessed. Zachary helps Quincie find her true self in this book. She kind of reinvents herself, grows up a little bit more.
I liked how Cynthia Leitich Smith put the first two books in the series, Tantalize and eternal together, and meshed the characters together. When I first started reading the parts with Zachary and Quincie I thought they would fall in love. Thankfully they didn’t, that would have ruined the whole book. It was strictly friendship between them.
All in all, even though I said some negative stuff in my review (which will happen) I did like the book, it is the end of the series and at the end of all series that are good. It’s sad to know that there won’t be anything more to look forward to for it. But I hope that Cynthia writes another series so we can enjoy that to.
I have read a few other books by Deb Caletti and they were really slow for me. I almost didn’t want to finish them, but when I started reading Stay I couldn’t put it down.This book had me on an emotional roller coaster that kept going up and down.
Clara and Christian meet each other for the first time and there’s instant attraction towards each other. They start becoming closer and closer and their love for each other deepens into an unhealthy relationship. What Clara thought was love for each other has become an obsession for Christian.
I loved how each chapter switched from the past to the present. It painted an even better picture in my mind about what was going on.When Clara and Christian first got together I thought they were the perfect couple. Christian seemed crush worthy but then I start noticing the jealousy, easy to anger and the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde side of him. All signs of an abusive relationship.
Clara and her dad go away for the summer to a beach house, where they can get away from all the stress and worry of what they left behind.After two years of being in a relationship with Christian, Clara meets Finn. Finn is a nice caring guy, who helps Clara with the emotional memories. While Finn and Clara get closer she realizes that Finn may be what she was looking for all along.
Stay is Clara’s journey to find love and healing and she finds it in just the right people. I connected with all the characters in the story. It was all just heartbreaking with all the sadness and pain that some of the characters had. Each character played a special part in the book and it all flowed together really nicely.
Deb Calletti wrote about a tough subject that happens all over the world and brought it into the YA population (and to adults).I am grateful to be able to read a ARC copy of this book and I recommend it to everyone!
Couple of things I want to point out that I really liked about this book:I loved how at every chapter there was a picture of the moon, and I loved the cover. It was so intriguing looking. I have been looking forward to reading “Once in a Full Moon” for awhile now. Ever since I read the plot I was hooked.
Celeste and her best friends made a bet to go to the psychic on the other side of town, her two best friends get the normal fortunes told to them, but when the psychic tells Celeste to be away of the kiss under the full moon, it will change forever. She finds it strange and wants to get out of there as fast as she can. Then the other things that the psychic predicted came true and she started to become afraid.
Celeste and Nash have been together for awhile, they’re the perfect couple, everyone envy’s them .But then the new kid, Brandon comes to school.
Because the girls won the bet Nash has to invite Brandon to the party. Nash doesn’t like Brandon and something happens at the party and Nash and Celeste break up.
Brandon is the new kid, very mysterious and he seems to want to be left alone. Celeste starts finding him intriguing and then she starts hanging out with Brandon, Flirting a little here and there. She starts comparing Brandon and Nash. They start meeting in secret and there little flirtatious acts turn into love.
When Celeste ignores the psychic and kisses Brandon under the full moon she witnesses something him turn into something else.When Brandon turns into a wolf he doesn’t remember a thing when he was in that form, so when he turns human again, he thinks he was just sleeping during that time. But Celeste tries to convince Brandon of what he really is.
I have read a lot of mixed reviews about this book. I was a little hesitant to read it because everyone says it wasn’t that great of a book. But I loved it!
I have read her previous series: vampire kisses and loved it so why not give this book a chance. I can’t wait for the second book in this series: Magic of the Moonlight which comes out in December :) This book left us in a cliffhanger and I’m hoping December comes real fast.
Another amazing book by Stacey Jay, mostly everyone in their life has thought one time or another, what would happen if you could just erase that one moment in time and redo it. If you’re like me a lot of embarrassing things happen and you wish you could go back in time and forget about it, well this was all possible for Katie.
Katie and Isaac have been together for years. They have been happily in love with each other, and even planned their future together. Until one night Katie cheats on Isaac, with Mitch a friend between the two of them. Isaac soon finds out and dumps Katie. She has regretted the kiss ever since, and has been wishing she could change what happened in the spur of the moment. That night the locket she borrowed from her grandmother’s jewelry case starts getting really hot and she soon finds herself unconscious and waking up at the same party where she kissed Mitch. Before it happened.
Katie finally has the chance to redo that moment in time where she messed up and she could still live happily ever after with Isaac. Still shocked and trying to figure out what had happened she still didn’t understand how she went back in time. Each time she wished she could redo something the locket would heat up and let her redo the moment over again. Each time she redid her future, the more the future was changing. For the worse.She didn’t realize that changing those moments led to other nasty possibilities in life.
After she saw that the locket was causing more harm than good she tried taking the necklace off, the clasp just wouldn’t come undone! She tried everything to get it off, she even went to the tool shed and tried wire cutters but the locket still wouldn’t come undone.
This book had many unexpected twists.
I loved the idea of how Katie traveled back in time to fix her mistake but the outcome always wasn’t a good thing.Katie learned that fixing your mistakes wasn’t a good thing, at first it seemed like it, but in the end it wasn’t worth it.
I was very happy with the outcome of the book. It made me end the book with a smile.
I would recommend this book to many people who love a good love story once in awhile :)

Dark moon is the second book in the wereling series, this book is action packed with suspense and excitement.Each page you turn makes it even more suspenseful wondering what’s going to happen next.
In the first book Trey found out he was a werewolf, Caliban, one of the most powerful vampires in the world is trying to kill trey but Lucian got him before he could get hurt. Lucian mentored Trey and gave him a place to stay but he wasn’t safe yet. Caliban couldn’t get to Trey so he kidnapped Lucian and left him to fight to his death.
Gwendolin, a very evil and powerful sorceress, has a key that could save Lucian. So Trey and Alexa (daughter of Lucian) have to travel to the netherworlds to defeat Gwendolin and get the key. Trey and Alexa get trapped and have to fight to save themselves.
The end of the book leaves a cliffhanger and that’s when book 2: Dark moon start up .
In the second book Trey has learned to control the inner werewolf more, his powers have become stronger as they travel to get the glove from Gwendolin.
Lucien is on the brink of death and the only thing that could help him is to retrieve the glove and destroy Gwendolyn.Trey, Alexa, Charles and tom must go and endanger their lives to heal Lucian.
Trey Doesn’t like Charles at all, Charles is Alex’s ex and Trey becomes a tad jealous, he doesn’t like Charles cocky attitude either. When they go on a mission to retrieve the globe they have to work together, it was a test of strength and determination for both of them, as they are working together they earn more respect for each other. Both Charles and Trey have their strengths and weaknesses but when they worked together it was just enough to get done what had to be done, they both sacrificed a lot and in the end it was well worth it.
The second book also left us with a cliffhanger, we know that Trey just found out he has an uncle that is also a werewolf and it ends just before he leaves to go find him.
Steve feasey’s next book in the wereling series is called blood wolf.
To be honest Angel was not my favorite in the series, in the last book “Fang”, we find outthat Fang is leaving the flock, he’s going to start a new flock and go away from Max, even though they are in love, he thinks it’s for the best, ever since then Max has been heartbroken and sad. But Dylan is there, Dylan is totally and faithfully in love with Max. He was programmed to love Max they were made for each other.
A couple of things that annoyed me about this book:
Fang and Max are not together
Dylan and Max are getting closer
I think Angel is really creepy in this one, not only has she betrayed the flock 20 million times before but she acts like she’s an adult when she’s really only 7.Angel is so well behaved and its annoying, every single page I turn I keep thinking Angel is going to do something evil to the flock, surprisingly she doesn’t!
But they don’t have time to think about Angel ,there is a big threat about the end of the world and Max’s flock and Fang’s new flock must come together to save the world. There are some ups and downs and a lot of tension between the two flocks but they had to put their differences and emotions to the side so that they could save the world.
If I knew there were giant bird kids living in my world and they were trying to save the world of completely erasing I would be very scared. Not only would we have to put our trust in little kids but we would have to get over the fact that there are superhuman teenagers out there that could bring down world domination.
I loved the new characters in the book, they all had a meaning and a purpose in this book and they all blended together to make an amazing new flock, and it was just amazing to see them all working together in the end.
Although there were a few things that were annoying in this book I absolutely loved it. Ever since book one I have been entranced in this series, now I have to wait a whole year to read the final book in the series *sigh*.
If you read the other books then you going to love this one, tune in next February to read The end of maximum ride ( the true title of the book) I wonder if the world does end in the last one?
This book reminds me a lot of “She’s The Man” movie with Amanda Bynes, but its different at the sametime. Jody Gehrman put her own twist into it and made this book with some great twists and such a lovable story. This book had me laughing throughout the whole book.
Natalie is very dedicated to her love advice column in the school newspaper but a lot of the guys in the school are complaining because she’s been giving bad advice lately. What does she know? She doesn’t exactly have experience in the love department. She gets all her thoughts from books and movies.
Natalie is going to attempt something that no one has ever done before. She’s going to disguise herself as a boy and enroll in an all boy’s school to help her get a better insight on what boys really think. Trying to get a better look so she can get the winning piece of the paper and get respect from her evil editors who seem to mock her every day and it only gets worse when she gets the bad comments from the guys in her school.
Natalie cuts off all her hair (yikes) and starts her new day at school, instantly falling in love with her roommate, Emilio and trying to hide whenever her enemy who has been in the spot light ever since she could remember.She meets some interesting guys the first day, There’s Tyler and his group of geeks, I liked Tyler’s character in the book, he was honest and sweet and a totally nerd, crushing on Natalie’s best friend Darcy.
After spending a week in an all boy’s school she still hasn’t got any of the answers she went there for. Natalie writes up and insightful paper about what she’s learned a week being there, she never got the answers but she does look at things a different way now.
What I loved about this book was the lesson Natalie learned at the end. Natalie went looking for the answers of what guys think but she came back discovering herself.She went through hell in the experience that she had but she came back a better more determined person. She came back appreciating herself.
The cover of this book is hilarious and it drew my attention the first time I laid eyes on it. A+ for the cover
