Book review - pushing the limits by Katie McGary

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


So wrong for each other…and yet so right.No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth.

But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common.

Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can PUSH THE LIMITS and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her HOW TO LOVE AGAIN.

Finished April 5-April 30

Review - Echo use to be normal until one night she got scars on her arms and doesn't remember why now she is a freak. Noah lost his parents and now he's trying to get his brothers back . Echo and Noah don't get along at first but it seams they have allot more in common and Echo falls for Noah and the other way around Echo still doesn't remember why her mom tried to kill her and Noah is trying to adopt his brothers problem Carrie and joe the parents that his brothers have now . But why Echo and Noah fall for each other they know there for each other they go through allot I loved this book it felt so real out of all the contemporary's i've read .

Favorite quote - “If you’re scared, tell me. If you need to cry and scream, then do it. And you sure as hell don’t walk away from us because you think it would be better for me. Here’s the reality, Echo: I want to be by your side. If you want to go to the mall stark naked so you can show the world your scars, then let me hold your hand. If you want to see your mom, then tell me that too. I may not always understand, but damn, baby, I’ll try.”

“It doesn't get better," I said. "The pain. The wounds scab over and you don't always feel like a knife is slashing through you. But when you least expect it, the pain flashes to remind you you'll never be the same.”

Favorite places to read

I just saw about happy books do a post and I thought I'd join in. My favorite places to read are one the car I don't have my license yet so I get to read in the car all the time . I use to get sick while reading in the car but now I don't. its just very relaxing and now that its getting warmer I open the window listen to my music and just relax . The second place I like to read not love is my bed when I do find a comfy spot I'm good but when I don't it messes me up.

Book review - Divergent by verionica Roth

Divergent (Divergent, #1)Divergent by Veronica Roth
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.(less)

Book review - Ten by Gretchen McNeal

Ten Ten by Gretchen McNeil

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

SHHHH!
Don't spread the word!
Three-day weekend. Party at White Rock House on Henry Island.
You do NOT want to miss it.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?(less)

Book review - obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsidian (Lux, #1)Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don't kill him first, that is.(less)

When Katy and her mom move after her dad has passed they need a new change and a new change they got Katy meets her boy next door Dameon Black he's an ass good looking. Sweet talking. Alien yeah you hear me. Right him and his twin sister are aliens Dee and Katy get along smashing I mean Katy does get attacked by the luxen's enemy and is weirded out why but when. She walks in front of a car and daemon stops it that's when it gets good Katy finds out and she has a trace that the armun can trace to them and the rest but Katy and daemon have a special relationship lots of bickering and heat I really loved this book the writing was well done I loved the characters and the end wow great first in the series

Favorite quote - Why are you such an ass?" The words came out before I could think twice.
"Everyone has to excel at something, right?"
"Well, you're doing a great job.”
― Jennifer L. Armentrout, Obsidian
