Review:The Eve by Keary Taylor.

A plan was laid out as the Evolution crushed mankind, a plan that was right under Eden’s nose all along. And Eve is the key to everything. New Eden—mankind—they have a small chance at fixing their dismembered planet.

But it will be a reckless sprint against time and the coming Bane to retrieve the final piece to the plot. New Eden’s worst fears have become reality. The Bane are back in the city and they’re smarter and more aggressive than ever. They know where the humans are and they’re coming to finish what they’ve nearly completed.

Eve has been content with the family she’s found—Avian, West, Gabriel, Royce. But she’s about to discover she may have the one family Eve never thought she would: blood. With every odd stacked against her, all the lies and all the secrets of her origins will be exposed.

The past and the future are about to come full circle.

Review:


Here i am again writing about one of my favorite series,but this time i hate admiting that i write about the last book in The Eden trilogy series.
I wish this wasn't the end because the story was too good to end and i'm sad.The fact that it had a happy ending makes me want to dance and that's something good,right?

Well,let's just say that after everything that happened in the first books i expected something bad and ugly to happen.And in a way that happened.
There were so many things that happened.Between Eve finding out that she could save the world and finding out about her sister,i couldn't wait to read more about how she and the scientists could stop the Banes.That sounded really interested,until i got to read that part and my heart almost stoped.Cause it was bad.And i almost cried.Too emotional .But i guess it had to happen,right?Well,i'm trying to recover after that.

So..There is a chance to stop every single Bane and Eve knows that she could do that.I loved her for that.She was willing to sacrifice herself for everyone ,even if she shouldn't have to.But that had to happen in order for everyone to survive.I'm not saying that i'm okay with the part about sacrifice..I'm not,because it wasn't fair for her,but i guess that was the only chance.
I loved the fact that she was strong,a leader(without knowing or accepting),a surviver and of course a woman who loved with all her heart .She was capable of doing everything to help the ones who she loved and who loved her.And she did so many things for those people,especially for Avian.She may hated West a little,but in the end she accepted the fact that he hided everything from her because he was wrong when he thought she was her sister,Eve One.

And here is the part where i almost fell out of my chair when i found out that Eve One was alive..Good God.This happened to me twice..And now again?Yikes.But the decision Eve made?That was even better.
I should have guessed that something huge was going to happen after they decided to go to NovaTor Biotics..But i never expected this.
And Creed?I'm so happy she survived.She was so little and fragile,but i suppose that she came in the right place at the right moment,because without her Avian wouldn't have been okay after that horrible moment.
Too many details?Ops.I'm sorry.I'll try in the next sentences to write less details..

Once again the book was full of action and ups and downs.But what dystopian book is without those things?In all of them you will find action and ups and downs.Well,not all of them are bad and not all of them are good.But some are in between,making the story look more interesting and making you wish some things never happend.Geez.I'm not really sure why i always end up writing "but",maybe because i keep finding something to write about and let's just say that i have a lot to write about this book.
The action wasn't simple at all and i loved how Keary wrote everything.Nothing was simple.A few scenes were complicated,a few were too intense.
The characters were amazing and strong,full of live and prepared to fight for their world.And that's what i liked the most.The fact that they weren't backing down.That they still had hope that one day everything was going to be okay.

I am happy to admit that i loved the story from the beginning and even more i loved Eve.She's not the only characters who made her way in my heart.Avian,West,Gabriel ,Royce and even Vee-those are the names i will always remember and smile because i really enjoyed reading about those characters.About they struggled to fight every day and their desire to survive.Cause in the end what really matters is that Eve did it .In the end The Bane lost the fight againts the world,against Eve.
And i think i'm going to cry right now..Why did it had to end?
It was hard for me to read the last chapters,when i thought that the book will have a bad end.My eyes were filled with tears but i really hoped that something will change.That Eve will find a way to come back to Avian and the people who loved her.And she did it.And i almost jumped up and down because i was sooo happy.

This was the end of an amazing story about fighting and surving.About human beings trying to get their world back and their struggle to stay together and fight against their enemies.About love and hatred.About desire to win and the need to do something good .About waiting for something good to happen.And about sacrifice.But in the end this book was about :hope for a better future.

Blog Tour That One Summer by C.J Duggan



Loving Chris Henderson would be wrong. Diabolically disastrous. I mean, what is there about him to love? He’s moody, bossy, brooding, a control freak, and that’s on a good day … but there was one achingly obvious fact that haunted my every thought, every minute of every day …

He sure could kiss.

As the countdown to the new millennium begins, there is one thing everyone agrees on: no one wants to be in Onslow for New Year’s Eve.

So that can only mean one thing: road trip!

No longer the mousey, invisible, shy girl from years ago, Tammy Maskala is finally making up for all those lost summers. A new year with new friends, which astoundingly includes the bossy boy behind the bar, Chris Henderson.

She likes her new friends (at least most of them), so why does she secretly feel so out of place?

After chickening out on the trip, a last-minute change of heart sees Tammy racing to the Onslow Hotel, fearing she’s missed her chance for a ride. The last thing she expected to meet was a less-than-happy Onslow Boy leaning against his black panel van.

Now the countdown begins to reach the others at Point Shank before the party is over and the new year has begun. Alone in a car with only the infuriating Chris Henderson, Tammy can’t help but feel this is a disastrous start to what could have been a great adventure. But when the awkward road trip takes an unexpected turn, Tammy soon discovers that the way her traitorous heart feels about Chris is the biggest disaster of all.

Fogged up windows, moonlight swimming, bad karaoke and unearthed secrets; after this one summer nothing will ever be the same again.




Review:

Who said that Chris Henderson is not someone you could fall in love with has yet to meet the real Chris Henderson.
I'm still trying to process everything that happened,but like always i have to admit that the book was truly amazing and that the main characters weren't exactly like i expected..So..
Do you remember Tammy Maskala?Well,if you don't remember her then let me tell you this:she is Amy's best friend and a really sweet girl who manages to steal the heart of one of the Onlsow Boys.

Guess which one!Well,i'm sure that,like me,no one expected that exactly the one who is always frowning and serious would be the one who will steal Tammy's heart.
But..I admit that i loved reading about them.About how Chris was more than a grumpy guy.About how Tammy reacted when she was tricked by her mother and by Amy.Or the wonderful surprise Toby did to Tess(even if at some point the way they acted made me shout out loud : What?WHy?When?.Don't ask,read the booK!)

So when i started reading the book i was happy because i really wanted to know what Cj wrote and what the story will be about.Imagine my reaction when everything happened...But i admit that when it is about the Onslow Boys and about the girls everything has to be perfect and crazy.It was.

Tammy-at first i was a little afraid that i won't like her or that she wasn't going to have a beautiful story like Tess and Amy,but i was wrong.Sweet,beautiful  and smart,Tammy managed to make me love this book.She wasn't bad and i'm glad..And if i think about how Chris is..If you know what i mean..
What really matters is that Tammy was perfect for this story.For Chris.Yep,she managed to do exactly what the rest of the girls couldn't and for that i almost jumped up and down..Happiness.Yay!A little insecure and sometimes she was thinking too much about some things,but in the end everything was perfect.

Since the first time i read about Chris(In The Boys Of Summer) i never thought about how he was or how his story will be.He was always the party breaker ,the one who always was working and ..the rest you know.But this..This was really a big surprise and i loved every single scene.Yep,who knew that Chris Henderson could be like this?No one!
Once again we get the chance to read about our favorite characters.Once again we get the chance to read about real friendship and about how real friends act.

Fun.Real love.Happiness.Crazy time.And once again real love.

Yep,i had to write that twice because this book was about real love.The beginning of something beautiful.
I admit that i expected everything to happen a little strange,cause if you think about it not everyone could get Chris attention,that i know from The Boys Of Summer and An Endless Summer.But somehow Tammy managed that pretty fast.
But this book wasn't just about Tammy and Chris.I just can't ignore all those scenes with the rest of the characters.Every single one of them had an important part in this story and i loved how everything happened.

What i loved the most?The way Tammy and Chris acted when they were together.At first like nothing was happening between them and then slowly that changed.And it was perfect!!I should stop right now before i write every single thing that happened in this book and that won't be good at all.

And the last thing i want to add is: You.Have.To.Read.This.Book.ASAP!

Alegerea de Kiera Cass





Într-o lume determinată de castele sociale dintr-un viitor distopic, pentru treizeci şi cinci de fete alegerea viitoarei mirese a prinţului Maxon reprezintă o şansă unică, posibilitatea de a scăpa de viaţa care le-a fost sortită încă de la naştere, de a pătrunde într-o lume a rochiilor elegante şi a bijuteriilor fabuloase, de a locui într-un palat şi de a se lupta pentru inima chipeşului moştenitor al tronului. Dar pentru America Singer, alegerea ei în competiţie se dovedeşte un adevărat coşmar, în ciuda a ceea ce i-ar putea oferi această poziţie – glamour, bogăţie şi putere. Căci, pentru ea, Alegerea înseamnă să renunţe la dragostea tainică pentru Aspen, un băiat dintr-o castă inferioară, să-şi părăsească familia pentru a participa la o luptă acerbă pentru o coroană pe care nu şi-o doreşte şi să locuiască într-un palat ameninţat necontenit de atacuri violente ale rebelilor.

Dar din momentul în care intră în competiţie ─ cu toate ingredientele acesteia: prietenii, gelozii şi, inevitabil, acte de sabotaj ─ şi îl cunoaşte pe Maxon, America începe să fie sfâşiată între iubirea ei pentru Aspen şi atracţia tot mai mare pe care o simte pentru prinţ.
Încet-încet, ajunge să pună sub semnul îndoielii toate planurile pe care şi le făcuse şi îşi dă seama că s-ar putea ca viaţa la care visase mereu să nu fie nici pe departe la fel de minunată ca viitorul la care nici nu îndrăznise să se gândească.


„Un roman în care reality show-ul îşi dă întâlnire cu un basm-distopie. Încântător, captivant şi plin de doza potrivită de pasiune!” – KIERSTEN WHITE
„O poveste captivantă… Iubitorii cărţilor de dragoste vor fi fascinaţi de universul acestei ţări cu o istorie alternativă şi îşi vor dori să fie deja publicat romanul următor al acestei serii pline de glamour.” – SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
„Romanul de debut al lui Cass se citeşte pe nerăsuflate şi e mai puţin dur decât Jocurile Foamei. Iar acţiunea alertă îi face pe cititori să aştepte cu sufletul la gură continuarea.” – BOOKLIST
