Book in Review: Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis


Title: Stitching Snow
Author: R.C. Lewis
Publishing Date: October 14th, 2014
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Format: ARC
Rating: 4.5/5 stars

This book was absolutely amazing. I loved the plot, I loved the characters, I loved how the classic Snow White story was so brilliantly inserted into the into the book. There was never a boring part while I was reading it. 

Essie, the main character is so strong without being overly tough. She retains the feminine quality while also possessing enough independence and strength to defend herself. Very few authors manage to do this so I'd like to compliment the author onthat. 

Book in Review: Love and Other Theories by Alexis Bass

Title: Love and Other Theories
Author: Alexis Bass
Publishing Date: December 30, 2014
Publisher: HarperTeen
Format: ARC
Rating: 5/5 stars


I finished this book in about 3 hours and I almost cried and threw my kindle out the window.

This book is just too much. I didn't expect it to turn out the way it did and I just want to tear my eyes out because it was so painful to read but also soooooo good and just... Wow.

If you think this is a light and fun contemporary romance, then you are wrong. This book totally crushed my heart and I really don't know what to do anymore.

At first, I had no idea where this book was taking me. There were too many time lapses and time skips in between chapters. I felt like it was going on all these different directions and I was left unsure of what to feel. Was I supposed to ship these two characters? Was I supposed to root for these 4 brutally broken girls who were just too mean to everyone even if they knew it was  wrong? Was I supposed to like how they kept pretending and hiding their true feelings? Whose side was I supposed to be on when it came to cheating and betrayal?

I'm glad I didn't give up on this book in the end. Everything wraps up perfectly and I mean that in a way that it's imperfectly perfect. I wanted to ship Aubrey and Nathan so hard - but even I knew this sweet young love turned too ugly in many different ways that left not only me completely crushed and heartbroken. I wanted to root for these girls - but it was a lost cause. It was evident in the end that the point of this book is to show us how ugly and harsh things can get, and you definitely don't get more if you give less. I liked how the book ended and it gave me a semblance of hope that the main character would be a better person.

The character development of this book is just astounding. It's so subtle, in the way that you just get it, without any form of big realization or THIS IS IT monologue coming from any of the characters. Aubrey is wonderful and fantastic and I could relate to her a lot. She progresses throughout the book and her maturity is evident in the end. Shelby is also very interesting, though I found her mostly despicable. Her character is so different, but altogether understandable in her actions. I'm not sure what happens to Nathan and I can't seem to figure him out. I can't seem to differentiate the sweet boy who reads school readings to Aubrey and gives her flowers and meets her parents and charms them, from the boy who does something as cruel as sleeping with Aubrey's best friend and ALMOST getting her pregnant. Really? WHAT?! I'm not sure of him yet, and if I don't figure him out, I'm taking this as a cue that his character was made to be impossible to read.

There is NOTHING beautiful about this book. It is ugly and heartbreaking and it will make you want to pull your hair out one by one. But it's absolutely breathtaking and it will give you so many feels to the point where you just want to rip your heart out from your chest and cry, cry and cry. This is an amazing coming of age story that will stay with you for a long time.

{Review, Giveaway, FFF} Book in Review: Wanted: Dead or in Love by Kym Brunner

Hey everyone! For this post we will be having our book review of Wanted: Dead or in Love by Kym Brunner (Many thanks to Kym for sending us a copy!), announcements of a GIVEAWAY (yes we will be giving away a copy of Wanted, just scroll down for more info!) and our Feature Follow Friday! :)


Title: Wanted: Dead or in Love

Author: Kym Brunner
Publication date: June 30, 2014
Publisher: Merit Press 
Pages: 286 pages
Format: ARC
Rating: 4/5 stars
Synopsis: (via Goodreads)
Impulsive high school senior Monroe Baker is on probation for a recent crime, but strives to stay out of trouble by working as a flapper at her father's Roaring 20's dinner show theater. When she cuts herself on one of the spent bullets from her father's gangster memorabilia collection, she unwittingly awakens Bonnie Parker's spirit, who begins speaking to Monroe from inside her head.

Later that evening, Monroe shows the slugs to Jack, a boy she meets at a party. He unknowingly becomes infected by Clyde, who soon commits a crime using Jack's body. The teens learn that they have less than twenty-four hours to ditch the criminals or they'll share their bodies with the deadly outlaws indefinitely.
This is one of the most unique books I've read this year. Its modern take on the Bonnie and Clyde story is really refreshing. I mean, paranormal mixed with Bonnie and Clyde added to gangsters will definitely make up an amazing and interesting story. 
I absolutely loved the chapters that were told from Clyde's point of view. It was funny and all in all, just new to me. He 'woke up' after a lot of years and suddenly the world is so much more advanced and different from his. Understandably, he'd be confused. The fact that Clyde's POV seemed to be the most entertaining part of this book actually contributed to the reason why I took away one star. Since Clyde's chapters were always so entertaining, the POV of the other characters like Monroe were overshadowed. I just couldn't get into their story as much as I did with Clyde's. Some might even end up merely skimming the pages. Also, Jack was a bit meh for me, but Monroe was entirely likable. 
The last parts of the book were definitely the most exciting parts. I didn't know what would happen in the end, how the book would play out, so I was hanging on to every detail. Another thing that I like about this book was how real the voices were. You could almost imagine them standing there and actually saying these things. The characters were unique, the plot was creative, and the story was new. 
All in all, I loved this book. It's excellent, unique, refreshing, and new. Though there are a few things that could be improved, it's a book worth reading.

Feature Follow Friday

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work?

The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed. All features are chosen randomly to be the feature. They are not chosen by content or name.
This weeks Question:
