Book Review- Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell


Eleanor & ParkEleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read  from  February  17- 26

Summary  -Set over the course of one school year in 1986, ELEANOR AND PARK is the story of two star-crossed misfits – smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love – and just how hard it pulled you under.


This review contains spoilers !






Review  -  I  had  read  fangirl  last year and loved  and I picked up  Eleanor  & park  and fell in love with this romance  but it  didn't start as  a romance   Eleanor  is  a big  redhead   and  a little bit  weird  and  wear's  men's  clothes   but  Eleanor   has   a  tough life  her  stepdad   kicked  her  out   and she's  back a  year  later   and she's  starting  at  a new   school  .  Park  the  only  Korean  in omaha  when  he  meets   Eleanor   he  thinks  she's  weird     but  lets  her  sit   next   to him    there  both    misfits  there  different  from  everyone  else   I loved this book  but  I didn't like  Park at first  I  thought he  was very  judgmental  to  Eleanor  I don't  like people   who  judge  just  cause of  weight and looks   but  then  things  happen  and I loved them  Eleanor  starts  reading   his comics  over   his  shoulder  I squeaked    out  of happiness  and  then  he makes her mix tapes  that's  adorable      I thought this books  was  going  to be adorable  cause I did read  fangirl   and thought it was going to be  this  cute adorable  romance I was so  wrong I loved the mix  point of view  .  they  start  talking   about  music and comics  and  I thought that was  so sweet   but  Eleanor   has  problems   he  lives  with   his  terrible   step  dad   and  siblings    but  there  family's  are  totally  different  park's  family     his  mom is  a beautian   everything   changes  between  them  they  start   dating  and I loved there  romance  I loved that  Park loved  her  even   if  she  was curvy   and had  big red hair  and I know how that feels   I'm curvy  I  have  big  curly  hair    I loved when  they had  the  first kiss  and  then  allot of  dates    and  I  loved that Park's mom is  like  I don't  like  Eleanor  and then  as  time  goes on  she  sees  allot things she relates to   I loved that I loved the  makeover scene  I thought it  was funny  .  I need a park in my life  cause he's adorable  I love that  he  gets insecure  to he tells eleanor  there are no hot Asian guys  I thought it was nice to see he  didn't see himself  as hot   and they had  things in  common  in the end  this is where  shit  gets  real she comes home  from a date with  Park  and  she sees  all the things with park everywhere and this message  now through  this book I thought the messages on the book was from Tina  but no it was from her stepdad   so  she gets out and  she's running and there's Tina  saying  like hey what's wrong  so she  helps her and  and her  Tina and  steve go to park   and Eleanor says she has to leave so he takes her  and they say there goodbyes and it was  heartbreaking I loved this book so much  I didn't want it to end  read it .

Quotes I love  -She'd  have to get up to let him have his spot by the window . Which would be akward . It was all akward . Every time the bus hit a pothole , Eleanor practically fell in the guy's lap . Page 24


Eleanor  was   right  :    she looked like  art  ,   and  art   wasn't  supposed   to look nice   ;  it  was  suppose   to make  you  feel  something  .  Page   165

Book review - allegiant by veronica Roth

Allegiant (Divergent, #3)Allegiant by Veronica Roth
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read from December 20 - February 20


Summary -   The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.



This review contains spoilers !



Review - The last book in the divergent series is told in tris and Tobias point of view I loved that it was in both point of view it was interesting  to see the what was in both there heads so after insurgent we learned  that they wiped people's minds and there memories now Tobias mom is taking over  they know  they have to get out  so they get out of the city and go to the buro where tris's mom came from and we learn her mom went into dauntless when she was sixteen to learn Tobias also learns something about himself he's not divergent there are two typeGD and GP genetically damaged and genetically pure and Tobias is GD  and he thinks he's broken and tris keeps telling him that he doesn't need to lose  to the the test  that she loves him . Tris reads her mom journal when she was in the buro it was interesting I really loved this book it might be my favorite I know it's sad but I loved it Tobias works with this girl Nita he thinks that she wants the truth serum but she really wants the death serum and Uriah gets hurt he may never wake up at this point I was already sobbing I love Uriah  Tobias was arrested and tris is angry with him but eventually forgives him more happens in this book lots of work and this beautiful scene with Tobias and tris I loved that scene cause veronica Roth didn't focus on the sex part more the emotion part and I loved it . David wants to do another reset and tris has an idea to reset them  but she has to get to the weapons area well Caleb was sapose  to do it , it went down very bad   And I was sobbing I loved this book if you haven't read this series do so it's an amazing series I loved it .



Favorite quotes -

I sigh . it's  not a perfect situation  but when you have to choose between two bad options , you pick the one that saves people you love and believe in most you just do okay ? Page 388

And  I know   ,  without  being  told   ,  that's  what love does  ,   when  it's  right  - it  makes  you more  than  you were  ,  more than  you  thought  you  could  be .  page  414


Where have you been lately ? Christina says she wiggles her eyebrows . With four ? Doing a little ... Addition ? Multiplication ? I cover my face with my hands . That was the worst joke I've ever heard. Page 255

what's on my hold list

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.   Her opponents are men--thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.   Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.   Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

Anna Emerson is a thirty-year-old English teacher desperately in need of adventure. Worn down by the cold Chicago winters and a relationship that's going nowhere, she jumps at the chance to spend the summer on a tropical island tutoring sixteen-year-old T.J. T.J. Callahan has no desire to go anywhere. His cancer is in remission and he wants to get back to his normal life. But his parents are insisting he spend the summer in the Maldives catching up on all the school he missed last year. Anna and T.J. board a private plane headed to the Callahan's summer home, and as they fly over the Maldives' twelve hundred islands, the unthinkable happens. Their plane crashes in shark-infested waters. They make it to shore, but soon discover that they're stranded on an uninhabited island. At first, their only thought is survival. But as the days turn to weeks, and then months, the castaways encounter plenty of other obstacles, including violent tropical storms, the many dangers lurking in the sea, and the possibility that T.J.'s cancer could return. As T.J. celebrates yet another birthday on the island, Anna begins to wonder if the biggest challenge of all might be living with a boy who is gradually becoming a man.


















When twenty-eight-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she's in for a big surprise. Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident--in a Mercedes no less--Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she's about to find out just how much things have changed. Somehow Lexi went from a twenty-five-year-old working girl to a corporate big shot with a sleek new loft, a personal assistant, a carb-free diet, and a set of glamorous new friends. And who is this gorgeous husband--who also happens to be a multimillionaire? With her mind still stuck three years in reverse, Lexi greets this brave new world determined to be the person she...well, seems to be. That is, until an adorably disheveled architect drops the biggest bombshell of all. Suddenly Lexi is scrambling to catch her balance. Her new life, it turns out, comes complete with secrets, schemes, and intrigue. How on earth did all this happen? Will she ever remember? And what will happen when she does?
