#fridayreads 6/5/15

So, I am going to be doing one of my absolutely stunning written Friday Reads!

I didn’t stick to my FR last week, I don’t think I read anything really. D: A few chapters here and there… I think it’s an effect of reading over 22 books last month!!!

I was so proud of myself! 😀 So, maybe a week off isn’t so bad.

What I have in mind for the next week:





I am only listing four, and all are on my kindle. Two are for review and two are for pleasure. 🙂

I don’t want to overload myself.

After this, I will be writing an update post and possibly a review, so keep an eye out!

Over and out,


TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: Books I will never read.

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey.

So, it has been FOREVER since I posted a Top 5 Wednesday. Hopefully I can remedy that. This list is in no particular order.

1. Anything by John Green.

Now I know I will get a lot of flack for this one, but I just cannot stand the guy or his books. The only one that I kind of liked was The Fault in Our Stars. I have many issues with him that I will address later, maybe.

2. Fifty Shades of Gray series by E.L. James. ‘

Badly written, gets a lot of things wrong, makes abuse look like its a good thing, JUST NO.

3. Anything by Orson Scott Card.

Like John Green, I have a lot of issues with the guy, as I do the next lady.

4. Anything by Kathleen Hale

Just… no.

5. Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace.

This one is more of a… maybe. The book is HUGE and intimidating. I have a friend who can read 800+ page books in a day or two. They took a MONTH to finish this. It’s so big, you could kill someone with it! I want to read it, because of all the good I heard… but its massive.

What are some of the books you will never read? Leave them in the comments below!

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera BLOG TOUR


More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

Published by: Soho Press

Release date: 06/16/15

Genres: Fantasy/Magic, LGBQT, Young Adult, Romance

Pages: 304

“A brilliantly conceived page-turner.” -Kirkus Reviews, starred review.
“Vividly written and intricately plotted.”-Publishers Weekly, starred review.

The Leteo Institute’s revolutionary memory-relief procedure seems too good to be true to Aaron Soto — miracle cure-alls don’t tend to pop up in the Bronx projects. But Aaron can’t forget how he’s grown up poor or how his friends aren’t always there for him. Like after his father committed suicide in their one bedroom apartment. Aaron has the support of his patient girlfriend, if not necessarily his distant brother and overworked mother, but it’s not enough.

Then Thomas shows up. He has a sweet movie-watching setup on his roof, and he doesn’t mind Aaron’s obsession with a popular fantasy series. There are nicknames, inside jokes. Most importantly, Thomas doesn’t mind talking about Aaron’s past. But Aaron’s newfound happiness isn’t welcome on his block. Since he’s can’t stay away from Thomas or suddenly stop being gay, Aaron must turn to Leteo to straighten himself out, even if it means forgetting who he is.

Adam Silvera’s extraordinary debut novel offers a unique confrontation of race, class and sexuality during one charged near-future summer in the Bronx.

“[A]n engrossing, intense narrative.”-School Library Journal, starred review.
“Thought provoking and imaginative.”-Booklist, starred review.

This book sounds amazing. I cannot wait to read it. Rarely do books captivate me so much to the point it makes me want to drop what I am reading and read something solo. I have a feeling this will be one of those magical books. 😀

Having paralells to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, just makes me wish I could reach through the screen and have it now! And kinda wanna watch the episode of Futurama where Leela tries to forget Fry.

Broken Hearts, Fences and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn [DNF]

Title: Broken hearts, Fences and other things to mend by Katie Finn

Author: Katie Finn

Series: Yes, Trilogy.

Format: Hardcover

Page Count: 339, I stopped at 164.

Publisher: Feiwel and Friends

Age Range: 15+

Genre: YA, Contemporary, Romance, Social Issues

Description on Goodreads:

Hot sun. Blue waves. New romances. Old secrets.

Gemma had her summer all planned out, but it takes a sharp turn when she gets dumped and finds herself back in the Hamptons after a five-year absence.

Being there puts her at risk of bumping into Hallie, her former best friends (that is, before Gemma ruined her life). But people don’t hold grudges forever. Do they?

Gemma intends on making amends, but a small case of mistaken identity causes the people she knew years ago—including Hallie and her dreamy brother, Josh—to believe she’s someone else. As though the summer wasn’t complicated enough already.

Filled with summer sun, boys, and friendships gone sour, Katie Finn’s first novel in the Broken Hearts and Revenge series sizzles and delights.


Now, before I start I want to say this: I loved the writing style and I will be picking up other books under her other name; Morgan Matson. I loved the prose and how the story flowed… I just didn’t like the story. From the beginning I was getting through it quickly, but just as quickly it fell apart for me. The idea behind the series is great! Revenge, remorse, heartbreak, new romance, drama… it has it all!

But.. it just didn’t click with me. Something about the characters seemed overly predictable. I didn’t like how it was painstakingly obvious what was going on between Hallie and Gemma. I got it the first moment they saw each other again. I also flipped to the back and was right about another prediction I made.

The story wasn’t for me, but it might be for you! 😀 I am not going to rate this, since while I didn’t like the story and it felt overly predictable where it was going, I loooovveedd the writing and style. I will be picking up Since You’ve Been Gone hopefully soon!

My Rating:


Would I/Who would I recommend it (too): Anyone who likes a good contemporary novel!

Invincible by Amy Reed

Title: Invincible

Author: Amy Reed

Series: Yes, a duology.

Format: ARC provided by HarperCollins. (Thank you!)

Page Count: 325

Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

Age Range: 16+

Genre: Contemporary

Description on Goodreads:

The Fault in Our Stars meets Go Ask Alice in this dramatic romance about a teenage girl who survives a terminal cancer diagnosis, only to get trapped in the deadly spiral of addiction. Fans of Gayle Forman and Sara Zarr will be swept away by this gritty romance, the first in a duology.

Evie is living on borrowed time. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer several months ago and told that by now she’d be dead. Evie is grateful for every extra day she gets, but she knows that soon this disease will kill her. Until, miraculously, she may have a second chance to live.

All Evie had wanted was her life back, but now that she has it, she feels like there’s no place for her in it–at least, not for the girl she is now. Her friends and her parents still see her as Cancer Girl, and her boyfriend’s constant, doting attention is suddenly nothing short of suffocating.

Then Evie meets Marcus. She knows that he’s trouble, but she can’t help falling for him. Being near him makes her feel truly, fully alive. It’s better than a drug. His kiss makes her feel invincible–but she may be at the beginning of the biggest free fall of her life.


Oh my god I devoured this. This was like a heavenly mix of Gayle Forman and Ellen Hopkins. The pure transformation of Evie from sick “Cancer Girl” to her recovery to downfall is just pure magic. Amy Reed really knows how to write. I will definitely be looking more into her books.

I will say, if you are trigger sensitive to drug use, LGBQT, and family issues, please be careful.

Everything felt genuine. Like, I was actually there. God. I want the second book now!

My Rating: 4/5

Would I/Who would I recommend it (too): Fans of Ellen Hopkins, John Green, Gayle Forman. 😀

The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey

Title: The Girl at Midnight

Author: Melissa Grey

Series: Yes.

Format: eARC

Page Count: 368

Publisher: Delacorte Press

Age Range: 16+

Genre: YA, Fantasy, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

Description on Goodreads:

For readers of Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones and Leigh Bardugo’sShadow and Bone, The Girl at Midnight is the story of a modern girl caught in an ancient war.

Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she’s ever known.

Echo is clever and daring, and at times she can be brash, but above all else she’s fiercely loyal. So when a centuries-old war crests on the borders of her home, she decides it’s time to act.

Legend has it that there is a way to end the conflict once and for all: find the Firebird, a mythical entity believed to possess power the likes of which the world has never seen. It will be no easy task, but if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it’s how to hunt down what she wants . . . and how to take it.

But some jobs aren’t as straightforward as they seem. And this one might just set the world on fire.


I really enjoyed this. Echo was someone I really wanted to know. 😀 The pacing was quick, but I felt I could safely put the book down and come back to it, in a good way. I rarely have those kinds of books. The kind you can feel safe just setting down for a few days, and then just jump right back in! 😀

The style was very unique. I didn’t feel the City of Bones feel, then again I have never read it… but I did get a Daughter of Smoke and Bone’s and Shadow and Bone feel. Those two I had the same previous feeling with. I LOVE that feeling. That wonderful feeling. Sometimes taking a while to finish a book is a great thing! 😀

The world building is something that was very strong. I found myself thinking about so much of the scenery for days. Miss Grey really knows how to paint a picture.

And how to build a great set of characters.

I don’t want to get too much into detail, but there is one thing I am happy about. Something that makes me soooooo happy. NO LOVE TRIANGLE. Yes, there is romance though. A GREAT ONE! 😀

I am definitely grabbing a copy of this physically, as it has entered my heart as a possible favorite series. ❤

My Rating: 4.8/5

Would I/Who would I recommend it (too): Anyone who loves fantasy, and a great journey.
