SPOILER SECTION: The beginning of the book held a lot of excitement and adventure as Margo and Q scoured through the town. From buying fish at Walmart at 1am to shaving off someones eyebrow at 4am. When Margo entered Q’s bedroom window, I thought “um, okay. Yes, climb through your neighbour’s window and ask a guy who you barely talk to, to drive you around at 1am?” WEIRD. LIKE WHAT?? So they drive around the town and break into houses (somewhat) and into amusement parks. (What I was thinking was how did Margo know how to and was able to?) After that night, Margo goes missing/she ran away from home. Quentin sees the clues she left behind for him, so he can try to find her. So, he spent his whole last month of school (senior year) searching for Margo. Lacey, Ben, and Q, then embark on a road trip to NY to find Margo. Q realizes that searching for Margo has been the most fun he’s ever had, since Margo and him found that dead body when they were kids… This novel is SPECTACULAR. It shows Quentin what life is outside of his box… It was a great read, that opens your mind to finding joy in your life. BTW. I AM A NERDFIGHTER PEOPLE. THUMBS UP IF YOU ARE TOO.

Until next time,images-3

The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden by Jessica Sorensen

This book is about 2 teens and their dark stories that will shake you. Kayden and Callie, trust no one.  That all changes when they make a mark in each other’s lives and they reluctantly bump into one another… can they help each other to over come their dark past?

  • At the start of the book I did not like Kayden’s attitude it was a bit childish??
  • I did not enjoy Callie’s family at all. The book did not give a good amount of detail about her family and why she could not tell them about her problem. It was annoying to read about all the families in this book, since all the parents were all conceited and arrogant. Throughout the book I felt as if NO ONE in the book had a proper family. All the ideas were scattered everywhere and the author gave bit’s and pieces about the family members. ~Hayden’s mom is crazy, Callie’s mom is I don’t even know how to explain it, and Callie’s dad is blindsided.~
  • Callie’s relationship with Kayden however I enjoyed, it Screen Shot 2013-12-31 at 7.18.42 PMwas cute

Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick (HUSH, HUSH FANS)

This was an okay read. The book leaves you wanting more, even if you are FREAKING out from the thriller. It was interesting to see how a good guy turned into the criminal. After reading this book it left me thinking… Jude oh Jude.

BRIEF SUMMARY:

This book is about 2 girls who decide to go on a hiking trip for spring break. Instead of an ordinary spring break they expect to have. A blizzard forces them to abandon their car, to find the nearest shelter. They accept the hospitality of 2 handsome men who turn out to be fugitives and take the 2 girls hostage.  While being kidnapped 1 of the girls, Britt begins to fall in love with her capturer.


SPOILER SECTION:

Bad points about the book:

  • Britt was stupid
  • Why did they leave the car to head into the woods??
  • And yes, leave the food there too
  • Didn’t Britt train for the trip? How come she didn’t use any skills she acquired from training TO SURVIVE?
  • She trusted 2 men she did not know.
  • The book was so predictable
  • at the beginning of the book I knew calvin was the killer (IT WAS OBVIOUS)
  • She had weird second thoughts on everything “Mason is my capturer, but I like him. No, I don’t and blah, blah blah.”
  • Korbie was not her best friend but her sister? like what?
  • Korbie is mental in my head “Yes, Britt. Calvin is helping you by hurting you, trust him.” UM, NOOO. YOU PHYCO.

Until next time,
