Scarred by Vengeance: Review

From Goodreads:
This is the mission: Save. Protect. Destroy. 

Everything in Anastasia's world came crashing down when the one person she decided to trust failed her. On the run, now more than ever, she's trying to piece together the life she doesn't remember. With Blake still missing, she sends the rest of the family away, hoping to keep them out of danger. But being alone is a lot harder than it used to be and she blames herself for allowing Logan into her heart. He's gone now and she must let him go. Even though her perfect memory continues to play out the time they've spent together, much like a broken record. 

But Anastasia has no time to dwell on the mistakes of yesterday; her mission isn't over. Kallos Enterprises continue their experiments, as the death rate goes up, and Anastasia has no choice but to fight. However, she's not as cold blooded as she used to be and that proves to be a problem when the people she cares about are once again put in danger. With her strength—and memory—failing and Blake's time running out, Anastasia must tap into parts of herself she never knew existed, hoping that in the end, it will be enough to save them all.

My Review:
Oh, this was a really fantastic book! Such a great sequel, just utterly fantastic to read! I enjoyed it so much, and I'm so glad that I got a chance to read it! It was so great to see most everyone again! And those that we didn't see, well, their absence was felt!

Anatasia has changed since the last book, she's had this family, and she's fallen in love, and she's been let down. So she's different, the mission hasn't changed. She still needs to take down Kallos Enterprises!

It was really fantastic to watch her on this journey, as things get harder and harder, that she draws on her inner strength, and perseveres! And the fact that she was alone, just puts it all the more on her, and makes what she does mean all the more!

This is the second book. And there's going to be a third book. And this book, from beginning, middle, and end, reflected that, though it might've been hard to know about some of that from just reading this, there were bits from the first book, and an ending for a 3rd book!

So fantastic to read this book, it was so utterly good, really enjoyed reading it!

Such a Secret Place: Review

From Goodreads:
Raids splatter across the news--Arcaian soldiers are stealing magic left and right, using it against the people they steal it from.

When sixteen-year-old Ambry Csille's brother gets taken in one of these raids, her utter fear and panic should be enough to invoke tears in any normal world. But for Ambry, tears are a thing of the past.

Because of a spell, people can no longer feel emotion; not enough to cry, and definitely not enough to defend themselves against the tyrannical soldiers stealing her people’s magic. A rare vial of enchanted tears chooses Ambry to reverse the spell, and soon she finds herself the target not only of the Arcaians, but of battle-scarred Talon Haraway, who wants the tears for his own reasons.

All Ambry wants is to rescue her brother, but when her tears get stolen, Ambry determines to work with Talon to get them back. Any day the Arcaians could drink her tears. Any day they’ll succeed at draining her people's magic completely, and all hope will be gone—not only for her brother, but for her world. 

My Review:
This was a really fantastic book! Such an incredible world, where the people are cursed to be without tears, characters, Ambry, who's had her brother taken by the Arcaians, Talon with secrets, but who wants the tears...yeah! Really great to read this book!

This world was really different then our own. Like, there wasn't electricity, there was magic. And that magic is slowly being stolen. Which is bring things into chaos, which is perfect for a book, but not so great for those that are in that book!

There was the question of why the tears chose Ambry, but apparently that's going to be revealed in the next book, which I can't wait for, because while a whole ton happens in this book, well, I know there's a whole lot more left to come!

And then there was that ending! There was so much going on, and then it just ended! Like in a snap, everything was over, almost nothing was resolved, which is just has me itching for reading the second book, like, now!

Really, really great book, and yeah, I enjoyed it a whole ton!

Between Us and the Moon by Rebecca Maizel
Expected Publication:
From Goodreads:
A luminous YA love story that evokes Judy Blume's Forever for a new generation. 

Sarah—Bean to her friends and family—is an aspiring astronomer and champion mathlete. She lives behind her beloved telescope, with her head in the stars and her feet planted firmly on the ground. For as long as she can remember, she's also lived in the shadow of her beautiful older sister, Scarlett.

But after a traumatic end to the school year, Sarah goes to Cape Cod for the summer with her family, determined to grow up. It's there that she meets gorgeous, older college boy Andrew. He sees her as the girl she wants to be. A girl like Scarlett. He thinks she's older, too—and she doesn't correct him.

For Sarah, it's a summer of firsts. Before she knows what's happened, one little lie has transformed into something real. And by the end of August, she might have to choose between falling in love, and finding herself.

Fans of Jenny Han and Stephanie Perkins are destined to fall for this romantic and heartfelt coming-of-age novel about how life and love are impossible to predict.

We Have the Cover of Chronicles of Elantra #11!!!!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we have the cover of Cast in Honor by Michelle Sagara! And it is so awesome! I love it!

From Goodreads:
In the aftermath of a vicious battle between darkness and light, the city of Elantra has emerged victorious. But Shadows continue to haunt every corner of its streets...

Elantra stands strong, but countless numbers of Hawks, the city's staunchest protectors, were lost in the brutal attack. Humans, Barrani, Aerians, Leontines—none of the races emerged unscathed from the defense of the city. Homes were lost, families were scattered…and the outcast Barrani Lord Nightshade is missing from his castle in the fiefs. 

Yet as the chaos surrounding the battle begins to wane, Private Kaylin Neya's duties must resume, despite her grief. Called in to investigate a triple murder in a quiet part of town, Kaylin and her companions are soon embroiled in a case that is anything but routine. Evidence of the deadly Shadows that still threaten the city leads to hints of ancient, forgotten magics. And a visit to the Oracular Halls points directly to Ravellon—the heart of the Shadows and the darkness they contain. 

But it is there that Lord Nightshade will be found—if he still survives.

And we have a synopsis! So awesome! And yet, it doesn't come out till late November. Hopefully it'll be put up on NetGalley, because in two weeks, it'll make a year since I read Cast in Flame, and I just really want to read it! What do you guys think? Happy reading!

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Today's teaser comes from Paperweight by Meg Haston, page 95.

"It reminds me of that game Josh and I used to play when we were kids, where you build a tower with wooden blocks and remove one block at a time until the tower falls. Once you touched a block, you're committed. You can't go back."

Well, that's a pretty grim look at the game! What about you guys? Happy reading!

All Ambry wants is to rescue her brother, but when her tears get stolen, Ambry determines to work with Talon to get them back. Any day the Arcaians could drink her tears. Any day they’ll succeed at draining her people's magic completely, and all hope will be gone—not only for her brother, but for her world.

I Did It! I Finally Did It! Last Milestone, Got It! Yeah!

So yeah, I'm really, super excited. Because for the first time since late 2011, I have all of my reviews written, as far as I know. I'm going to go through all of them, making sure that they are, and then that'll be done!

This is the last milestone that I wanted to get. Well, it's a combination of 3 of them, finishing all of the 2012 reviews, all of the 2013 reviews, and having all the reviews I have posted, actually having the reviews in it, as far as I know. There was one case where it was empty, but I filled it! Now to check to see if there's any more of those...

Yeah, I feel really good now, because it's finally done, and I don't have to worry about it anymore, because I did make my deadline, because I had till the end of today, and I finally got them all done! And yeah, it feels really, really good!

But now I'm tired, because I spent all day doing reviews, and it added up to 76. So that's now my newest record, beating my last one of 40 by 36. So I almost doubled my record. But I'll hopefully never have another one again, because I don't want this to happen again!

So yeah, this was a pretty good birthday present to myself! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Write on Review-a-Thon Update 126 and Wrap Up!!!

So I wrote my last review, Unbreak My Heart. So yeah, I'm done, I have all reviews written, and I most definitely went over my goal of 30 reviews, seeing as I wrote 76 reviews alone, today. Yeah. I'm just glad that it's all done! What about you guys, how did you do if you did this? Happy reading and reviewing!
