Waiting Wednesday

Kell is one of the last Travelers—rare magicians who choose a parallel universe to visit. 

Grey London is dirty, boring, lacks magic, ruled by mad King George. Red London is where life and magic are revered, and the Maresh Dynasty presides over a flourishing empire. White London is ruled by whoever has murdered their way to the throne. People fight to control magic, and the magic fights back, draining the city to its very bones. Once there was Black London - but no one speaks of that now.

Officially, Kell is the Red Traveler, personal ambassador and adopted Prince of Red London, carrying the monthly correspondences between royals of each London. Unofficially, Kell smuggles for those willing to pay for even a glimpse of a world they’ll never see. This dangerous hobby sets him up for accidental treason. Fleeing into Grey London, Kell runs afoul of Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She robs him, saves him from a dangerous enemy, then forces him to another world for her 'proper adventure'.

But perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, Kell and Lila will first need to stay alive — trickier than they hoped

Book review - Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Sibhan vivian

Burn for Burn (Burn for Burn, #1)Burn for Burn by Jenny Han
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

February 5- 16


Summary -
Postcard-perfect Jar Island is the kind of place where nobody locks their doors at night, where parents can sleep easy, knowing their daughters are tucked away safe and sound in their beds.

But bad things can happen, even to good girls . . . and sometimes, the only way to make things right is to do something wrong.

Lillia used to trust boys, but not anymore. Not after what happened this summer. And she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her little sister from the same fate.

Kat is over the rumors, the insults, the cruel jokes made at her expense. It all goes back to one person--her ex-best friend. Someone needs to teach her a lesson, and, with Lillia and Mary behind her, Kat feels up to the task.

Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she’s not the same girl anymore. Now that she’s got friends who have her back, he's going to be in big trouble.

Three very different girls who come together to make things right. Will they go too far?


THIS BOOK REVIEW CONTAINS  SPOILERS  !





Review-

Lilia , Mary and Kat are three different girls there not friends Lilia and Kat use to be but that was a long time ago but Lila , Mary and Kat are done waiting for Karma to catch up on the people who wronged them they decide to do it themselves So all three of them want revenge on three separate people Lila on Alex cause apparently he's hooking up with her sister . Rennie cause She keeps badmouthing Kat they use to be best friends and Mary Reave who is a jackass and I hated him .
Mary left years ago Reave use to pick on Mary she was bigger back then he called her big easy what piece of garbage what I liked about this book was the revenge even though in the end it kind of didn't work out very well . Rennie she's kind of a bitch on the last night of summer they met these guys on the beach and they end up going to these guys house for a party after they threw a party for Alex and Lila lost her virginity to one of those guys and Rennie let one of the guys she is a terrible friend . Kat and Alex hung out all summer but then she sees Alex and Nadia Lila's younger sister what a pervert so then end up starting on Alex they take his poems mess up his skin it was kind of harmless knowing that he wasn't actually hooking up with Nadia . When we found out why Mary really wants to take out Reave I wanted to punch him in the face and he's a character he treated Mary like garbage he made her feel like they were friends but when they were around other people he acted like a jerk she tried to kill herself when she was younger what a terrible person so at homecoming they make sure Rennie doesn't win and they drug Reave which turns out bad he fall off the stage and seizes HOLY CRAP and then he whispers big easy and then Mary screams and sets the electricity what is with her is she a witch or something I loved this book .

book review - Exquisite Corpse by Penelope bagieu

Exquisite CorpseExquisite Corpse by Pénélope Bagieu
My rating: 2 of 5 stars






THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS !



Summary-  Exquisite Corpse February 9- February 9 Zoe isn't exactly the intellectual type, which is why she doesn't recognize world-famous author Thomas Rocher when she stumbles into his apartment...and into his life. It's also why she doesn't know that Rocher is supposed to be dead. Turns out, Rocher faked his death years ago to escape his critics, and has been making a killing releasing his new work as "lost manuscripts," in cahoots with his editor/ex-wife Agathe. Neither of them would have invited a crass party girl like Zoe into their literary conspiracy of two, but now that she's there anyway. . . . Zoe doesn't know Balzac from Batman, but she's going to have to wise up fast... because she's sitting on the literary scandal of the century!

Review -

I requested this on netgally . this graphic novel was okay it's about Zoe she has a crappy boyfriend crappy job until one day she needs to use the bathroom and goes up to Thomas rocher's house and he's in hiding he's been pretending to be dead him and Zoe get along until she finds out about that he's been pretending to be dead kind of sick so he can get good reviews on his book even sicker him and his editor use "lost Manuscripts" and then Zoe and Agatha had this plan that was genius crazy but I didn't see coming see Thomas had this book he was working on that's going to be a trilogy but then zoe pretends she wrote it like what it was a  weird book  I didn't hate  it but I didn't like it also
