Follow Friday(19)

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

~This Week's Features:

~This Week's Question:

  • You are a matchmaker -- your goal, hook up two characters from two of your favorite books. Who would it be? How do you think it would go?

~My Answer:
IDK! Tough one! Hmmm.....
I think I'd like to hook-up maybe Puck (The Iron Fey) and Adne (Nightshade trilogy)! I think Adne would keep Puck on his toes but she is that cute tease that definitely would cause a positive reaction from Puck if you know what I mean ;D She is headstrong too and I think Puck's quirky flighty attitude would do wekk for Adne. I think they would have a lot of fun! Idk...I'm not the best "Hitch" so ya....

Lol what did you guys choose? Leave your link in my comment and I'll check it out! :)

Thanks for stopping by! :) 

{Review} What a Boy Wants by Nyrae Dawn

What a Boy Wants
Author: Nyrae Dawn
Published: April 6, 2012
Source: Bought (only $0.99 on Amazon for Kindle!!!)
Pages: 135
Courtesy of watching his mom’s relationships, Sebastian Hawkins knows what girls need to do to get a guy. He has what he considers a PHD in hooking up. When he needs extra cash for a car, Sebastian starts up an online venture as The Hook-up Doctor, to anonymously help girls land the guy of their dreams. Of course, his services don’t offer a happily-ever-after guarantee. He’s seen firsthand getting together never means staying together. 
And then he falls in love… 
With the last girl he would expect…
Totally not in his game plan. 
Suddenly, Sebastian finds himself muddled in the game he’s always prided himself on. He can’t even pick up girls at parties anymore! Why would anyone want to be in love when it turns you into a stuttering, screwed-up, mess with really lame stalker tendencies? Stalking? Totally not his gig. 
But the Hook-up Doctor won’t let himself go down easily. He’s always known how to give a girl what she wants and now it’s time to figure out what a boy wants… and he definitely plans on getting it. {Goodreads}
Uhm.....I don't even know where to start! This book left me absolutely speechless! No joke. Ok I'll start out with....

Sebastian. I loved that this book was from his POV!! I, as a girl, got to see inside a boys head. ;) Sebastian is one of those boys who likes to play around. He just likes to have fun. He feels bad for the boys who are "whipped". Why be held down by one girl when you can have a new girl whenever you feel like? One night hook-ups: Hell yes! Forever and ever: Hell no! But don't take that as him being a heart breaker! No. Sebastian would never lead a girl on. He doesnt want to be like the men who have been in his mother's life. The kind of guy who makes a girl feel special and that a relationship could bloom from it. Heck! He doesn't believe in relationships and he definately doesnt believe in love. Point being: He is a one shot dude. Hook up and that's it. He's seen his mother heart broken one too many times and would never do that to any girl.

In fact he's seen it so much that he's kind of a pro that this. You know...what a guy wants...what a girl wants...what it takes to get the guy! He's so good that he even has his own business as the Hook-Up Doctor! Ya, that's right he gets emailed from love struck girls who are in need of some advice to get the guy of her dreams. For $100 he gives the advice needed for that one girl to get her hook-up! ...Emphasis on the hook-up. Even though his work is full proof....he is not responsible for the happily ever after or deal.

Jaden (hey does that name sound familiar? Oh and it's not a girl), Pris, and Aspen are Sebastian's best friends. Aspen more then the rest. They've know each other since grade-K and have lived on the same street, just two houses down from each other, just as long. These guys have been through everything together. The girls have even had to save their sorry hook-up butts more than once and have had to deal with them and their flirts on more than one occasion. But that's ok cus that's just how close they are!

I loved each of the characters! They were individuals but they were the same. Each one of them was likeable and relateable. They each had their troubles and that's what made them so real! They found friendship because of their problems. They were there for each other!

Now enter in the beginning of the story when Sebastian gets another client: PA Rocks. But...somethings strangely familiar with PA. There was alot of dramatic irony going on and I loved it. But then of course I wanted to slap Sebastian and tell him to open his damn eyes! ;D

Guys...this book is amazing! It's a short read but it doesn't feel like it. You would think that with as much time wouldn't quite work. That it was too rushed or some nonsense that we often run into when talking bout short stories. But not with this one. Ms. Dawn worked time out perfectly! In fact she workeed everything perfectly! I mean this is from a guys prospective. a prospective of a guy...written by a girl. Eh. That often leads to the men being too perfect in that lil head of his. He seems too girly..whatever. Not a problem! You saw he wasn't perfect...the equivilant to how you think a guy's brain would work! Yes sometimes I was like...idk....but who am I to even say that! I'm not a guy expert!!

I am not joking when I say this book was AMAZING!! It seriously is one of my favorite contempories of all time! I couldn't stop smiling from page one! I seriously think my mom thought I was a freak from all my random smiles, giggles, and squeals when reading in the car. It was....absolutely amazing! I have no clue why this book isn't talked about more! Why everyone hasn't read it!

Do I recommend you all stop what your reading, buy this e-book(or paperback but you get the e-book quicker and in this case you need this book asap!...personally I'd like to own a physical copy so I can treasure it forever! but like I said...needed it asap!) and read!?
Yes, I do.

Seriously people! Go and read this when you need a quick little read. You will NOT. be disapointed! This star deserves these five stars I'm about to give it and a heck of a lot more!!! Sorry for the long review but it was a must! You know that if I ramble....its good! If it leaves me speachless...its great!! If it's as long as this....its a musst!!


Thanks for stopping by! :)

{Review} The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Series: Mara Dyer #1
Author: Michelle Hodkin
Published: September 27, 2011
by Simon & Schuster
Source: Bought
Pages: 452
Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
It can.
She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.
There is.
She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.
She’s wrong. {Goodreads}

 I have been dying to read this book for...EVER! And just like with every other thing having to do with my reading/blogging was out on hold...because of school. But fear not!! School is over AND I have had time to read this wonderful amazing book!

 This book had everything! Suspense, thrill, romance, a gorgeous boy that I just so happen to have fallen in love with and who just so happens to be in my top 5 favorite fictional boys, all equaling the perfect horror/mystery/paranormal book!

 The characters were put together so well! Each and everyone of them had a likable (or not so likable in some cases) character. Following Mara's confusion and trying to figure out what was real and what was just a hallucination made for the best "wild-goose-chase" anyone could ask for!

 Did I mention that I was pulling my hair out in some parts because it was so damn confusing!!? Or that I was biting my nails and the inside of my lip so much because it was making me flip out!!? Ya well I was doing all of the above. This book was not only funny, enjoyable, cute, and suspenseful but it was also sooo flippin FREAKY!!! Gah! They aren't lying when they say to read this book with the lights on that's for sure! Just by telling one of the freakiest parts to my brother made him want to stay up all night!! I have mentioned this new love of mine before right? Well, here he is a little more...detail *laughs evily* hahaha jkjk! ;D This boy. Noah Shaw. WOW! Ya one ..he has GOT the looks! Now why?
Let me break it down for you...

  • He has the whole just-woke-up-out-of-bed hair....and looks hot!
  • Blue-grey eyes that you can just fall into....and looks hot!!
  • Cutest lips that can form into: hot crooked smile, hot devilish smile, hot shy smile, hot you-don't-want-to-know-what-I'm-thinking smile, etc's of smiles that melts your heart and gives your stomach the flips....and looks hot!!!
  • Has no choice but to wear the school uniform (he adds his own touch of style)...and looks hot!!!!
  • An animal person....which makes him hot!!!!!
  • Has that bad boy rep. but is sooo not the guy people make him out to be....which makes him HOT!!!!!!
  • Should I go on......?
 Didnt think so.....ya OH!!! The way him and Mara are!!!! Ya....from beginning: OMG! HILARIOUS!!! the middle to end: O.M.G!!!! I freaking love the crap out of you!!? Seriously. like come alive and share some of those heated kisses with me huh?? ;) AND!!  his secrets......SQUEEEEE!!!!!! Gah! I just can't wait to get more of this boy when the second book comes out..which luckily isnt too far but...still not close enough! >:(

 This book will intrigue you and keep your reading until you've had no chouce but to finish that night. You do NOT want to miss this series. That ending....that ending.!!! Seriously! You will have no say so in finishing this book from beginning to end then book to book....Good luck getting your sleep in for the next few days! ;)

 Get this book. read this book. love this book. enjoy this book. and NEVER EVER forget this book! 

Thanks for stopping by! :)

{Review} Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer

Bloodrose (Nightshade #3)
Author: Andrea Cremer
Published: January 3, 2012
Publisher: Philomel
Source: Bought! :)
Pages: 406
Calla has always welcomed war.
But now that the final battle is upon her, there's more at stake than fighting. There's saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay's wrath. There's keeping Ansel safe, even if he's been branded a traitor. There's proving herself as the pack's alpha, facing unnamable horrors, and ridding the world of the Keepers' magic once and for all. And then there's deciding what to do when the war ends. If Calla makes it out alive, that is. {Goodreads}
Nightshade has been great series so far! It was the series which opened my Lil reading eyes to the realm of wolf books and I'm definitely glad it was my first! 

Ms Cremer is an amazing and talented writer! I love the creativity and detailing she made to these books. Everything about these books was enthralling and that's why I have finished it! 

My o my!!! Yes she did it! Ms Cremer went out with a bang!! I wasnt too sure what was gonna happen and was worried on how 
she was gonna pull it off especially on how the book was mainly about finding the swords in the beginning. I kept asking...when and how's is the revolt gonna pick up! I am sooo terribly sorry for even have any trace of doubt! Why? Because she did it and she did it perfectly!

The beginning was perfect. The tension between Shay and Ren was perfect. Calla's narrative character was perfect. The building bond between the Searchers and the Guardians was perfect! The thrill and suspense was perfect!! The ending!!! Well...was....perfect!!! 

I admit..I cried! It was a terrible ending!! I mean why!! I was know! I mean it can't be true!! All who have read this amazing end to this trilogy know what I'm talking about! But in the was beautiful! I couldn't help but enjoy it it really was perfection!! And the narrative ....gosh just EVERYTHING! Please don't even take me lightly when I say the ending....the BOOK!!! Was. Perfect!!! I'm not even exaggerating! I couldn't have asked Ms Cremer herself to do it any better! 

I am in love and will forever be! I am soo glad I read this!! If you haven't picked up this series need to like right now! I'm serious! You won't be disappointed!! And all of you who have out off reading the final book like I did....stop it right now! Get off your lazy toosh and read it!!! Haha was this review girl fan enough?? 

Oh and incase you were wondering.....#TEAMSHAY!!!!! Till the end!!! Love ya like crazy hun!!! ;) 

Thanks for reading! :)

This. Is a book I have procrastinated on giving a review because of my vaction. I am sooooo VERY sorry!!!! But without further adue....

Here is a short review (my reviews might be shorter from here on out fyi!)

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I agreed to read and review Ms. Lois D. Brown's book. And too be you can see....I procrastinated..ALOT! And I feel really bad. Things got ruff in my life and I lost track. And I felt even worse cus this book was really good! 

It had its slow start but it was understandable. It really picked up about half way through and I was enticed. I had trouble putting my phone down. (e-book copy) The characters were very likable! The plot was very different and very intriguing. It was totally different and unique. I loved it!

I definitely recommend you all to go and try it on for size ;) I really dont think you will be disappointed.
