My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga

18336965

the synopsis of this treasure is incompatible to the book as it is so much better.

Sixteen-year-old physics nerd Aysel is obsessed with plotting her own death. With a mother who can barely look at her without wincing, classmates who whisper behind her back, and a father whose violent crime rocked her small town, Aysel is ready to turn her potential energy into nothingness.

There’s only one problem: she’s not sure she has the courage to do it alone. But once she discovers a website with a section called Suicide Partners, Aysel’s convinced she’s found her solution: a teen boy with the username FrozenRobot (aka Roman) who’s haunted by a family tragedy is looking for a partner.

Even though Aysel and Roman have nothing in common, they slowly start to fill in each other’s broken lives. But as their suicide pact becomes more concrete, Aysel begins to question whether she really wants to go through with it. Ultimately, she must choose between wanting to die or trying to convince Roman to live so they can discover the potential of their energy together. Except that Roman may not be so easy to convince.

***** MUST READ *****

This book took several unexpected twist and turns, which made it enjoyable to read. The book was difficult to read, since it was so deep and dark. It made me want to get attach with points in the book, but at the same time try to set my emotions aside, because as I attach myself to the book my vulnerability will overtake me, since this book is so beautiful and awestruck-ing. Words cannot begin to explain how amazing and thrilling this book is. In all, My Heart and Other Black Holes was a pleasure to read, it was a breath of fresh air and I loved it.

The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne

Fans of Sarah Dessen and Huntley Fitzpatrick will enjoy this smart debut young adult novel, equal parts My Life Next Door and The Princess Diaries—plus a dash of Aaron Sorkin.

My reaction after I finished the book.

YOU CANNOT COMPARE THIS BOOK TO BOOKS MADE FROM HUNTLEY FITZPATRICK AND SARAH DESSEN. AND TO COMPARE IT TO THE PRINCESS DIARIES. NOOOOO.

THEY ARE IN NO WAY SIMILAR.

UH.

LIKE.

NO.

NEVER.


This book is overall a content read for me. I feel as if I did not connect to the book well enough.


WHAT I EXPECTED:
– a good,strong romance

-rebellious moments

-Andy as a bad-boy character

-Kate’s growing relationship with her father little-by-little

-a realistic political plot

-cry-hard moments

-okay writing


WHAT WE GOT 

-good writing

-cute relationship (weird relationship)

-Andy (a goofy character)

-amazing mother-daughter connection

-realistic politics

-boring plot

-a lot of the wrapping up of the book being pushed to the end


WHY I DID NOT ENJOY THE BOOK 

The love story between Kate and Andy did not click with me at all. I felt as if it were a childish, i like you relationship. And what annoyed me the most was the fact that the two kept repetitively, recieting how they hated the media. Like we get it, you Drama Queens. Now, move on from the topic. But I did like the cute, quirky part of the relationship. How he called her every night, him wanting to sneak out, and their goofy talks.

In my opinion, I found that Andy’s character was more like a jokster rather than a rebel. For instance, when he faked being drunk at one of the presidential events, haha, funny. (Comment c’est rebellious???) (how is that rebellious???)

WHAT I ENJOYED a lot was Kate’s character (love her) and the relationship that begun to grew with her and her new family. It really touched the heart and the writing was delightful to read. Throughout the novel, we see Meg getting to know Kate and really connecting with her, it was great. They really felt just like mother-daughter moments.


OVERALL, the writing and the relationship with Kate and her new family (Gabe-love him, Gracie-evil cutie, Queen MEG, Senator Mark) were exceptional. I recommend this novel to those who enjoy a plot filled with politics and new-found family drama.

London Lane is a special girl. She remembers the future like we remember the past… At exactly 4:33 am each day, she will forget what happened the day before. Interestingly enough, she knows what will happen in the future the night before. With the knowledge of the future, London records it, in which she calls “notes” to prepare herself for the upcoming day. London meets a boy, Luke Henry who brightens her world around her. Yet, she cant seem to find him in her future… As you read through this book, doors of mystery will unlock of love and sorrow.

This book is recommened for anyone who wants a cute, mysterious read.

It was interesting to read this book. It was fasinating to read about how London got about her everyday life. It isnt everyday you read a book quite like this. I read this book in a couple of hours and it was intruiging. The world of London Lane lured me in and I wanted more.

HAPPY FEBRUARY!

RANDOM: THE ONE BOOK TRAILER. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVDfV7gCCFE&spfreload=10 

I wish the girl in the trailer would play America in the film.

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass

J’adore ce livre. This whole entire series is amazing. i love the coming of age story and America’s independence throughout the book. This is an easy book to get into and is a fast read, it took me about 12 hours – 1 day to finish the series. a75b525fb8cafadc26e00868257ae1bc BREIF SUMMARY: This book is a Dystopian, Y.A., Chick-Lit, Fantasy and Sci-Fi book. This series is set after world war 4, I believe, in a country named illea. The government is a monarchy and citizens are divided into caste. The range of castes is between 1-8, the lower the number the better. These castes were decided by what citizens were able to offer in a War, a while back. For 35 girls, the SELECTION is the chance of a lifetime, this could change the lives of their family and theirs forever. They could go from rags to riches, a chance they’ve been waiting for since birth. All they have to do is compete for the heart of Prince Maxon… For America the SELECTION is by far the worst thing that has happen to her. It would mean leaving her family and the person she loves, Aspen. Soon, America has met Prince Maxon and is questioning herself. It seems the future she’s dreamed of may be nothing like she’s ever imagined.


MY THOUGHTS *SPOLIERS*: I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while now and now that I have, I am in AWE AND I LOVE IT. I could easily say I like Maxon more than Aspen in the book. At first I thought Aspen was withAmerica for the physical aspect of their relationship, since we didn’t really see his relationship with America in the book. To me, America’s relationship with Maxon sort of grew with me. America and Maxon leaned against each other through the book, making them the perfect pair. At times, when they fought I WAS FREAKING OUT, I couldn’t bare to turn to the next page. Then Aspen came along and it just messed everything up, you know? America feelings were everywhere at that point, and she had to figure out where she would want to go from there. BUT SERIOUSLY ASPEN, he dumped her for the sake of her own, then they meet once again in the palace and he wants her back, NO, JUST NO. IT IS 0-V-E-R, over. And then they made out, IT’s ILLEGAL seriously if you care about her STOP. IMG_4725Prince Maxon trying to woo America over, was the end of me. I just loved the little things he did for her, from sending little notes to showing her the incredible library. It showed that he really understood her and wanted to fight for her. BTW, I LOVED THAT THE KING DIED, not the queen though. Either way I knew in the end, all would end well.


America’s Friends:

Celeste: At first I down right hated her and wished she would get knocked out by someone (thank you America). But as the series progresses I see humanity in her and I end up liking her over Kira.

Kira: The princes 2nd choice. I DID not like her for the obvious reasons. one-2

Marlee: MY LOVE. She is an amazing friend to America and it hurt when reading about Marlee and Carter getting canned. It was heart breaking for me to read, since Mer and Marlee are close, and the same thing could end up happening to Mer and Aspen.

The maids, Anne, Lucy, and Mary: I love their friendliness toward America, it is a genuine kind of feeling, one that is hard to find.  America brings life into their world and they return the favour, without them I think America wouldn’t have been able to last in the selection. It shows character the way that America stands up for the maids, which is mind altering in a good way. 🙂 tumblr_n4lskkYPmS1s3ja0uo1_500

*ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS BOOK #4 OF THE SELECTION*

THINGS I THOUGHT IN MY HEAD THROUGHOUT THE SERIES:

  •  “NO, DON’T KISS HIM”
  • “URGH, OMGSH”
  • “STAY AWAY FROM HER/HIM”
  • “YES, AMERICA”
  • “I LOVE THIS TOO MUCH”
  • “SHUT UP”
  • “NO, AMERICA”

THIS IS A MUST READ BOOK It would be awesome if you guys shared this post or comment thanks! Until next time,

P.S. MERRY CHRISTMAS FRIENDS AND A HAPPY NEW YEARchristmas-tree. 🙂
