Books I've Read but Haven't Reviewed (2)

Hey guys!
I'm sorry I'm not reviewing as much! Junior year is at it's worst, and I am just stressed! APs and SATs, ACTs, and of course CSTs are on their way. I have been reading, but not reviewing. So today I finally realized I won't be able to catch up. But I was on Vy's Blog and got a great idea from her! I'm doing it a bit different by adding a mini review for each. So here it goes!

A Million Suns (Across the Universe, #2)

Book: A Million Suns by Beth Revis
Published: January 10, 2012
Publisher: Razorbill
A Million Suns is the second installment in Beth Revis's Across the Universe Trilogy. I was MIND-BOGGLED! This book was just a huge shock, and to be quite honest unexpected. It was EXTREMELY fast paced. At times I really wished there was some calm down time in the book. I guess dealing with the situations Elder-now Eldest and Amy. Basically Godspeed is in turmoil, and well the world that everyone knew was a lie. A fast paced and enjoyable read you must try A Million Suns if you adored Across the Universe and love Sci-fi. Remember this is actually one YA that doesn't have the dreamy boy and girl in distress. It has two awesome strong leads, and well just full of epicness!
Rate: 4.5/5 

Book: The Fire by James Patterson
Published: Decenmber 5, 2011
The Fire (Witch & Wizard, #3)Publisher: Hachette

The Witch and Wizards series started off with an bang in book book. Book 2 was fairly decent, and it kept the story going. Up till the end of book two I enjoyed the series and I could not wait for The Fire. When I finally got the chance to read it, I must say I was disappointed. The story was slow, and it lacked the intensity of the first two books. I got tired of Whit and Wisty as characters, I didn't feel much growth between the two. James Patterson disappointed me with this addition to the series. The book itself lost much of the witty humor from before, as well as the personality it possessed. I just hope if there is another book after this, James Patterson somehow will save the series by adding pizzazz, speed and personality into the books.                  Rate: 2.5/5

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares

Book: Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and david Levithan
Published: October 26, 2010
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Adults 

I will be completely honest...this book is amazing. It's one of those contemporaries that you wish would be real, but if it were it would be really creepy. I mean finding a random guy through a notebook is so perfect, yet I find it so weird! Dash and Lily's was a fun and fast read. Taking place in NYC the Christmas cheer, and spirits could be felt when it was Lily's POV, while in Dash's you really hated the season. The book had witty humor, and as of now I need more books like this. This book truly indulged my Contemporary phase! Can't wait to pick up Nick and Norah's now. :D

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
Book: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
Published: January 2, 2012
Publisher: Poppy/ Little Brown

         I feel really horrible that I didn't have time to write a full length review for this one! I ADORED The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight! It made me laugh, cry, scream, and every other emotion possible! Hadley's life sucks, I mean your dad goes off to Europe for 6 months and then ends of having an affair. A few months later you are invited to the wedding. I mean If I were Hadley I would be quite pissed (not that she wasn't). Now on a trip back to London you meet this boy who sits one seat away from you. This young, tall, handsome, BRITISH, smart boy is just perfect! He is witty, emotional and has a secret. Oliver, man he is so amazing!
       If we talk dream guys he sums one up! Smart, funny, good looking AND British! While reading you would think Hadley and Oliver have been friends they were kids, but nope! This book takes place in 24 hours. Jennifer E. Smith did an amazing job capturing the reader (I had almost all my friends read it, and the y DEVOURED the book). If you want a book with a great story line, something so realistic that you think it could actually happen, and a unique book...you MUST read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. This is a book for everyone. <3

  1. Holy crap that's a lot of acronyms for tests. You need a vacation girl!

    The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was one of my favorite books. Probably one of the books that I will actually re-read in the future. I seriously adored everything about that book.

    I still need to read A Million Suns, I seriously expect a lot of things to go haywire in that book, just because the world people on that ship got tossed upside down in book one.
