Book review - Elevated by Elana Johnson

Add To Goodreads


ElevatedElevated by Elana Johnson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read from December 18-19

Summary- The last person seventeen-year-old Eleanor Livingston wants to see on the elevator—let alone get stuck with—is her ex-boyfriend Travis, the guy she's been avoiding for five months.

Plagued with the belief that when she speaks the truth, bad things happen, Elly hasn’t told Trav anything. Not why she broke up with him and cut off all contact. Not what happened the day her father returned from his deployment to Afghanistan. And certainly not that she misses him and still thinks about him everyday.

But with nowhere to hide and Travis so close it hurts, Elly’s worried she won’t be able to contain her secrets for long. She’s terrified of finally revealing the truth, because she can’t bear to watch a tragedy befall the boy she still loves.

 SPOILERS  IN  THIS  REVIEW !


Review - Elly has given up talking to Travis after what happened with Honesty until they get stuck in a elevator and there stuck talking about the past together . Elly is in love with Travis but he's dating Honesty Elly's best friend , Elly thinks every time she speaks bad things happen to the one's she loves she also says allot of childhood songs like bubble gum bubble gum . I loved this book I love verse books it was 300 pages and felt like 100 I read it in a day and a half. I loved the story it was sad and shocking at points I didn't like how Travis treated Elly after he broke up with Honesty he didn't even tell Honesty he was with Elly like what the heck dude sn't it enough you were into Elly but kept dating Honesty You don't do that . what I found shocking was that Elly found out she was pregnant I was like what the hell . I felt bad for Travis is some parts like with his mom and oh my god Jesse he was into Elly also he took Elly to prom because Travis asked him to he was really nice to Elly he was a good friend to her and oh my god Honesty what happened to her was really bad . and when I we find out Elly lost the baby so sad Elly was planing on leaving for California and Elly and Travis left on good terms I loved this book.

Favorite quotes-
it's torture to be reminded of his taste every time I peel an orange


some things are unforgivable some things erase a decade of memories some things obliterate a lifetime of plans .

Best friends can claim it's forever when really it's just until they grow tired of putting up with you .

But I can't stay here without deliverance from the past.

Book review : In real life by Cory Doctorow

In Real LifeIn Real Life by Cory Doctorow
My rating: 3 of 5 stars


THIS REVIEW  CONTAINS  SPOILERS  !

November 16-16

Summary - Anda loves Coarsegold Online, the massively-multiplayer role playing game that she spends most of her free time on. It's a place where she can be a leader, a fighter, a hero. It's a place where she can meet people from all over the world, and make friends. Gaming is, for Anda, entirely a good thing.

But things become a lot more complicated when Anda befriends a gold farmer - a poor Chinese kid whose avatar in the game illegally collects valuable objects and then sells them to players from developed countries with money to burn. This behavior is strictly against the rules in Coarsegold, but Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person's real livelihood is at stake.

From acclaimed teen author and digerati bigwig Cory Doctorow and rising star cartoonist Jen Wang, In Real Life is a sensitive, thoughtful look at adolescence, gaming, poverty, and culture-clash.

Review- Anda has started playing Coursegold it's an online game is getting payed to kill this gold farmers until she meets a Chinese kid who is in trouble in real life what I loved about this story was the art I love the drawings and that Anda is not a typical girl this was a very enjoyable story about gaming and friendship until she gets banned from the game for getting money which is against the rules she helps out the kid and gets back into the game and officially joins the guild I highly suggest you read this graphic novel

Book review : Crossing the line by Katie Mcgarry

Crossing the Line (Pushing the Limits, #1.1)Crossing the Line by Katie McGarry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

November 12- November 12

Summary - Katie McGarry captivated readers with her “riveting, emotional”* Young Adult debut, Pushing the Limits. In this gripping novella, she tells the story of Lila and Lincoln, who discover that sometimes it’s worth crossing the line for love…

Lila McCormick, Echo's best friend from Pushing the Limits, first met Lincoln Turner when tragedy struck both their lives. But she never expected their surprise encounter would lead to two years of exchanging letters—or that she’d fall for the boy she’s only seen once. Their relationship is a secret, but Lila feels closer to Lincoln than anyone else. Until she finds out that he lied to her about the one thing she depended on him for the most.

Hurting Lila is the last thing Lincoln wanted. For two years, her letters have been the only thing getting him through the day. Admitting his feelings would cross a line he’s never dared breach before. But Lincoln will do whatever it takes to fix his mistakes, earn Lila’s forgiveness—and finally win a chance to be with the girl he loves.


Review - Lila is going to Florida for college and she thought someone was going to be coming with her but it turns out no Lincoln isn't he lied to her Lincoln and Lila have been writing letters for two years when they met at Eco's brother's funeral and Lincoln's brother died also they've fallen for each other Lila is still scared to go alone but when Lincoln comes all the way to make up with Lila she slams the door in his face but she was happy he brought her purple flowers her favorite when she sees someone she ends up calling Lincoln people think's she nuts but it was a prank by her ex and she's ready to get even Lincoln and Lila go stalk them get paintball them I loved that scene so funny I loved this novella it was so cute I love Lila and Lincoln as a couple . Lincoln had to go through allot to get where he was and so did Lila she was afraid to be alone they work for each other I do recommend you read this story but read pushing the limits first .

favorite quotes - If it wasn't for Noah, Echo would need me more... she would still be insecure, she would still be obsessing over the scars on her arms. She possibly wouldn't have recovered her memory of the night she got them. If it wasn't for him, she wouldn't be moving on with her life. Damn him for being a great guy.”


“The entire sky erupted into hundreds of streaks of light. I never felt so alive. I wished that you were here with me or me with you. But I think you were. Call me crazy, but it was a moment, Lila, and I'm glad I shared it with you. Even if it was from a couple hundred miles away. ~Lincoln


“Her kiss is soft and warm-inviting. We both explore, a hesitant dance as we glide over lines neither of us imagined crossing.”

Waiting Wednesday

Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she's ever known.

Echo is clever and daring, and at times she can be brash, but above all else she's fiercely loyal. So when a centuries-old war crests on the borders of her home, she decides it's time to act.

Legend has it that there is a way to end the conflict once and for all: find the Firebird, a mythical entity believed to possess power the likes of which the world has never seen. It will be no easy task, but if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it's how to hunt down what she wants . . . and how to take it.

But some jobs aren't as straightforward as they seem. And this one might just set the world on fire

THIS  REVIEW  CONTAINS  SPOILERS  !





review- This book was awesome Sydney was a badass witch and I was screaming at her at some points with adrian like you like him he likes you now be together so in this book there is a witch that is sucking life out of other witches and it's mrs . terwilliger's sister this isn't good and then sydney has to go to a wedding Sonya's in fact I'm so happy that sonya got married oh and rose was there good to her in guardian action . so Adrian is trying to convince sydney that she loves him and I know she does and she's looking for marcus and she finds him and he keeps telling her that she needs to break the tattoo and she doesn't want to . Her and Adrian are trying to warn other girls about the soul sucking witch and they go to the bed and breakfast where mrs. terwilliger's sister is staying which I thought was idiotic I mean she could be there and suck her soul out and she keeps going into Sydney's dreams . sydney and adrian raise a dragon that scene was so funny and it turns out that the first people that the dragon see's and it was sydney and adrian there dragon parents hahaha . she had to seduce ian and get her snuck in and she uses a invisible spell she hits a fire ball at the computer . She finds out the alchemist have been working with the warriors of the light I knew it all a long she breaks the tattoo and in her dream with adrian she shows him the dress and they start making out and oh my god and then she wakes up and she know it was a mistake oh and jill saw it all . sydney car blows up and her necklace was inside and it burt her oh the girl at the bed and breakfast she has been soul sucking she even hurt veronica sydney attacks her sets her teachers house on fire and then we find out angeline and tray have been hooking up what a witch I kind of guessed that though . she decides to go to mexico but on last minute she decides not to go oh and she goes to adrian and awww it's so sweet oh and then zoe shows up this ought to be good ,this one was my favorite so far.

favorite quotes-

Let me get this straight . The future of our relationship hinged on advice from a fifteen-year old girl , a probally untrue story from a one - eyed chihuahua trainer , and me unromantically - yet skillfully - kissing you on top of silver-ware and china ? yep , I said . page 395

“Whatever happened to the dragon?"

I mustered my primmest tone. "He has a name, you know."

Adrian pulled back and gave me a curious look. "I didn't know, actually. What'd you decide on?"

"Hopper." When Adrian laughed, I added, "Best rabbit ever. He'd be proud to know his name is being passed on."
"Yes, I'm sure he would. Did you name the Mustang too?"
"I think you mean the Ivashkinator."

He stared at me in wonder. "I told you I loved you, right?
"Yes," I assured him. "Many times.”


“I sent a quick text to Adrian: I have a hickey! You can’t ever kiss me again. I honestly hadn’t expected him to be awake this early, so I was surprised to get a response: Okay. I won’t kiss you on your neck again.

So typical of him. No! You can’t ever kiss me ANYWHERE. You said you were going to keep your distance.

I’m trying, he wrote back. But you won’t keep your distance from me.

I didn’t dignify that with a response.”

You made me summon a dragon ! I exclaimed I most certainly did not , she responded Callistanas are a type of demon . I froze A demon well she amended . A very minor and generally benign kind . I didn't reply for a while Sydney ? are you there ? you had me summon a demon , I replied , voice stiff . you know how I feel about evil and the supernatural . You spent all this time trying to convince me that the magic we do is all for some greater good in the battle against evil , and yet you made me summon a creature of hell. Creature of hell ? she snorted . Hardly . you know nothing about demons . I told you it's benign , didn't I ? callstatans can be very useful . they'll warn you if dark magic is nearby and will even defend you if you're attacked - not that they can do much damage . I wasn't buying it . If they're so useful , then why don't you have one ? oh , well I'm at a level where I can sense dark magic on my own . That , and - if you'll forgive my language - callistanas are a real pain in the ass. they make the most irritating noise when they're hungry . Cats are more than adequate for my needs. page 280

Summarry - Katie’s got it pretty good. She’s a talented young chef, she runs a successful restaurant, and she has big plans to open an even better one. Then, all at once, progress on the new location bogs down, her charming ex-boyfriend pops up, her fling with another chef goes sour, and her best waitress gets badly hurt. And just like that, Katie’s life goes from pretty good to not so much. What she needs is a second chance. Everybody deserves one, after all—but they don’t come easy. Luckily for Katie, a mysterious girl appears in the middle of the night with simple instructions for a do-it-yourself do-over:

2. Ingest one mushroom
3. Go to sleep
4. Wake anew
And just like that, all the bad stuff never happened, and Katie is given another chance to get things right. She’s also got a dresser drawer full of magical mushrooms—and an irresistible urge to make her life not just good, but perfect. Too bad it’s against the rules. But Katie doesn’t care about the rules—and she’s about to discover the unintended consequences of the best intentions.

waiting wednesday

summary- Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul

But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

Featuring cameos from fan-favorites Anna, Étienne, Lola, and Cricket, this sweet and sexy story of true love—set against the stunning backdrops of New York City, Paris, and Barcelona—is a swoonworthy conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.

Josh walks isla home and gives her the graphic novel again but it's different this time and she finishes it and she runs to him so cute they spend two weeks together . then it's june and there back at kismet and josh is finished with the book and they on the happily ever after I loved it isla is going to darthmath and there going to be together I loved there story and it was nice to see my other favorites also.

Favorite quotes - does this...does this mean you want to be my boyfriend?" My question sounds both immature and momentous. But Josh doesn't flinch.
"Yes," he says. "I want.”

“We're enveloped in pitch black. "Wait here," I whisper.
"Are you getting your ax?"
"Handcuffs."
"Kinky. But, okay, I'll try it.”


“Several yards away – closer to the cathedral’s legendary carved doorways – Anna and St. Clair are standing on top of Point Zéro. It’s been hand-brushed clear of its dusting of snow. Point Zéro is the bronze marker, a star, which designates the official centre of France. There are at least two superstitions about it. One is that anyone who stands on the star will return to France. The other is that you can use it to make a wish.
“Wait for it,” Josh says.

Lola stands straighter, excited. “No!”

“Yes,” Cricket says.

I’m the last one in the dark, until – suddenly – it happens. St. Clair removes something from his pocket. And then he gets down on one knee.

Anna’s entire body lights with shock and joy and love. She nods a vigorous yes. St. Clair places the ring on her finger. He stands, she throws her arms around him, and they kiss. He spins her in a circle. They kiss again. Deep, hungry, long. And then he turns to us and waves – with the biggest smile I’ve ever seen – clearly aware that we’ve been standing here the whole time.”

Book review : The house on H street by A.K Francis


The House on H StreetThe House on H Street by A. K. Francis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

september 3-3

Summary  -Lydia Allen finally has the chance to move back home and claim the house of her childhood dreams. She'd always ignored the ghost stories and rumors of evil surrounding the old Victorian, brushing them off as nothing more than small town urban legends. She soon finds out, however, that sometimes the rumors are true, and there can be a high price to getting what you want.

August quotes



Book quotes -
Lola and the boy next door 
Remember that  that I  made  you  the  elevator  ?   he  suddenly   asks  I  gave  him  a faint  smile   .  How   could  I  forget ?   that  was  the   day I had  my first kiss  .  My smile   fades  .  I'm  better now .  he  sets   the  apple  beside  me .  At  kissing  just  so you  .  Page  135




I step  back into  him , my nose  against his  . Guess  what  ?  I  hiss  back  .  I am  a  liar .  I do  like  cricket  bell.  You're  right   . I've been  hanging out  with him  this whole time ! And he's  been in my  bedroom   , and I've been in his . And  I want  him  ,  Max  I want  him .  He's  shacking  with  rage  . Get .   out  .  I  grab my  purse   and  throw  open  his  front  door  .  I never   want to see you again  . His  voice is deathly  low  . You are  nothing to me  . Do you understand   Yes I say  . Thank you for making things so clear.  Page  254


Anna  Prods  St.  clair's  shoulder  . Come on . weren't you going to show me that thing ? what thing  ?  she stares at him . he  stares  back. She cocks   her head toward  cricket and me.  ah  , yes  St. clair stands that thing. they  rush out  . The door shuts, and  St. Clair shouts Lola  cricket  wants to show  you his thing too-oo!  page 295

If I stay 

“If you stay, I'll do whatever you want. I'll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I'll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would be too painful, that maybe it'd be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I'd do it. I can lose you like that if I don't lose you today. I'll let you go. If you stay.” 


“How am I supposed to decide this? How can I possibly stay without mom and dad? How can I leave without Teddy? Or Adam? This is too much. I don’t even understand how it all works, why I’m here in the state that I’m in or how to get out of it if I wanted to. If I were to say, I want to wake up, would I wake up right now? I’ve already tried snapping my heels to find Teddy and tried to beam myself to Hawaii, and that didn’t work. This seems a whole lot more complicated.
But in spite of that, I believe it’s true. I hear the nurse’s words again. I am running the show. Everyone’s waiting on me.
I decide. I know this now.
And this terrifies me more than anything else that has happened today.”
