Review: Parallel – Lauren Miller

Review: Parallel – Laure..

I kept hearing how amazing this book was so when a friend got an advanced copy and sent it to me I was siked! Jumping in I didn’t really know what to expect. Was it paranormal? Was it a contemporary? Would it be too much science and universe talk? The more I read the more I realized that it didn’t matter what category it fell into. It didn’t matter if there was science talk and if the concept seemed out there on the surface. All that mattered was how fantastic this book was and how it got me thinking. You […]

Second Chance Sunday – Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Second Chance Sunday – I..

With the release date Allegiant, the 3rd and final book in the Divergent series, quickly approaching I thought it would be appropriate to add Insurgent into my weekly Second Chance Sunday posts. This book seriously left me breathless. I read it on the plane coming home from Aruba and I swear I couldn’t breath when all was said and done. If you haven’t read the series, do it now before the ending comes out and wait and panic inducing misery with the rest of us! WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! I know, eloquent, right? The sad thing is that is the […]

Second Chance Sunday – Divergent by Veronica Roth

Second Chance Sunday – D..

I could sum up the reason why Divergent is a Second Chance Sunday post in a short sentence of: I ♥ Four!, but then I would look shallow and Divergent would look like nothing more than a book with a painfully adorable boy that is tough and vulnerable all in one. And Divergent is so much more than that. Divergent is an epic story of love, loss and choices. Of finding out who you are and what you can take and what scares you the most. It’s about growing up and living your life for you. It’s about being brave […]

Review: Cinder – Marissa Meyer

Review: Cinder – Marissa..

I will be the first to admit that I am shocked by how much I enjoyed this book. When I first started reading it I was convinced that I wouldn’t want to continue the series. It was just too out there for me. Cyborgs and androids and moon people; that’s just a tad too much for me to take. But as I started to read more and more and I started to see the similarities of Meyer’s Cinderella and the original fairy tale version, I got swept away in the creativity of it all. Was it predictable? Absolutely. But even […]
