ARC Review Never Eighteen By: Megan Bostic

Never EighteenNever Eighteen by Megan Bostic

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

**Tiny Spoiler Alert** Never Eighteen is both a sad and very inspiring story. It took us through Austin's last days or week battling Leukemia. Austin Parker is a 17 year old boy well considering his experiences i'd say he's very much a man and thats not a sexual joke either. He's diagnosed with cancer in ninth grade and this book is about his journey to try to fix the things he's done wrong and help the people he knows are hurting. With the help of his best friend who he's in love with Kaylee he travels around trying his best to make things right before he's gone. I got a bookmark with the book and there's a quote on there that says be aware you'll need a tissue. Now usually i read those kind of things on books all the time and i don't listen because I'm not a huge cryer but boy do i regret not listening because i shed a lot of tears by the end of the book.

Austin was a really sweet guy from what i read in the book and all he wanted was to help people and to let Kaylee know that he loved her. In my eyes he succeeded. He helped people and also got to experience things he never had before which is everyones dream before they die right? I loved Austin's character because like i said he wasn't too whiny or annoying he just wanted to help and i loved that about him. I loved how he helped Allie made sure he visited his estranged grandma. His dead best friends mom. An old friend and he even got his parents back together. If i was dying and the last thing i saw was my parents get back together if they were separated i would be able to rest in peace.

Now being in Kaylee's shoes is a whole different story. The poor girl lost her dad when she was young. One of her really good friends a couple years later. Then she loses her best friend/ the love of her life. Now i'd be able to at least get past it but to sit there and watch my best friend/lover die and know that i can't do a thing about it that would be hard. She made sure she made Austin's last few weeks awesome and that was really sweet of her. I'm glad that she knows how he really felt even though it probably made everything a whole lot harder she needed to know how Austin felt.

Overall i give this book 5 stars. It gave me everything i want in a book. I laughed, cried, and smiled. Austin and Kaylee are very good candidates for my favorite characters of 2012 even though were only in January =) I recommend this book to anyone who really needs a good cry, because it'll give you just what you need.

In My Mailbox 18

ARC Tour Embrace By: Cherie Colyer

Hello Followers so along with my traditional In My Mailbox post (Will be posted a little later today) I'm participating in a ARC Tour Embrace By: Cherie Colyer Hosted by A Tale of Many Reviews Book Blog Tours. I hope your excited because I have joined a lot of tours with ATOMR Book Blog Tours this year scattered all over the place a couple in March one in June so yeah you get the point. So without further ado here is my review for Embrace! I hope you all enjoy.

Embrace By: Cherie Colyer

When I was first asked to read Embrace I didn’t know it was about witches I thought it was another teenage love story type of thing. Now I would of read the book either way so I’m not complaining but I just wasn’t expecting what I got at all. I really liked the whole plot of the book because now that I think about it I haven’t really read any books about witches in a while well none that I can remember so I really loved reading this book.

All the characters were nicely written I loved that they were all good friends. Even though there weren’t many action scenes the few that were there were pretty awesome. My favorite character was Issac. The book describes him in my eyes to be extremely hot so I went for him right away. He was really mysterious at first which drew me in but then the way that he slowly started falling for Madison he totally had me. They’re the cutest couple in the book and I’m glad they stayed together

Now Josh and Kaylie were equally as cute, because I’m sure if I climbed on top of a desk screaming at spiders that aren’t there my boyfriend would have left and never looked back. But Josh he stuck by Kaylie’s side the whole time she needed him which I thought was really sweet.
Was anyone else jealous when Paige kept talking to Issac? Every time Madison would spot them talking my heart sank because I really wanted him and Madison to say a couple. So that’s why when Madison’s ex came a long the same thing happened because I didn’t want her to hurt Issac and then break up because it would’ve been bad.

Powers? I could have done without almost everyone in the book having powers but that’s okay. I knew Issac had powers from the beginning because when Madison fell off that ladder I knew she broke something and then all of the sudden he put his hand on her arm and she’s healed? Yep I knew but I had no clue about Madison or Josh’s powers or anyone else’s for that matter. In the end though everything worked out well everyone’s still together and no ones dead which is good! I’m not sure if there’s a sequel to this book but I’m kind of hoping there is.

I'm so excited that I finally got to share my review with you guys! Be sure to check out all of the other stops on the tour by clicking here

Review The Future of Us By: Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler

The Future of UsThe Future of Us by Jay Asher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve been wanting to read The Future of Us for awhile so when I saw it at my library I picked it up and checked it out right away. The main characters are Emma and Josh and the main side characters are there two best friends Kellen and Tyson. I was confused at first I thought Kellen’s name was a guy’s name but I figured it out soon enough.

First I would like to say that I really like the plot of this story. I personally think that if I could click on to Facebook and check on my future it’d be awesome. Yeah I’m sure I would have a few bad experiences seeing my future sometimes but it would still be pretty cool to have some sort of idea of what my life would be like.

Before I say anything about the characters I’d just like to point out that I absolutely wanted Emma and Josh to be together the whole book and I still do. I’m not sure what other people think about the situation but I’m sorry no one would be able to change my mind.

The two of them just have a spark that I couldn’t turn away.

Emma’s character I thought was fun she acted like any other girl would crazy about her future. In this book she had three different future husbands and she wasn’t fully happy with any of them. She’s definitely a girl considering she hasn’t met any of those future guys. I agreed with her though I secretly want Josh to be her future husband. I see him in the front seat of her car if you know what I mean. (If you haven’t read the book I swear its not a sexual joke lol)

Josh and Sydney Mills? Really! Come on when I saw that I was mad because well I didn’t know Josh’s character that well yet so when Sydney was his future wife I just had a feeling that Emma’s chance of being with him when right down the toilet. I know what your thinking she turned him down I know but you could tell that secretly deep down she really wanted to be with him.

Kellen and Tyson are sort of side notes. They kept saying Tyson hurt her really bad but I feel like he’s a good guy but I’m not sure the book wasn’t written about them so I wouldn’t know. But I do know what happened between them in this book and I thought that they were sweet together too.

Overall I give the book a 5 stars it was beautifully written and a book about the future is always good.

ARC Review Fracture By: Megan Miranda

FractureFracture by Megan Miranda

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG! I'm only 15 and i'm pretty sure i just had my first heart attack. Well not exactly my first because this book gave me many! To start off i'd just like to say i really liked the book and i couldn't put it down but man did it hurt. I'm the kind of reader that feels the pain of every character. There was so much pain in this book and i felt every bit of it. Megan Miranda i have to say is a fantastic writer because i only cry over a few books and this book broke me down to tears a few times.

At first i wasn't exactly sure like what kind of plot the book would have but I'm glad that she wasn't in the hospital in a coma the whole time because that would of just been really boring. Delany was a really strong character i mean come on she survived falling through the ice into a lake and she was under for 11 minutes!! That's a miracle right there! But she stayed incredibly strong throughout the whole book even when she thought she couldn't handle it anymore because she couldn't figure out what was wrong with her she was still strong and made it through!

Now there a three guys in this book that at times i loved at times i wanted to just kill and times i just wanted them to shut up and kiss Delany! First there's Mr. Hero Decker. Now I'm just saying i wanted Decker and Delany to be together from the start and i didn't change my mind fully throughout the whole book. I might have had some stray thoughts and moments where i just wanted to punch him in the face but i knew that he was the only one for her no matter what. Troy i did like him even though i didn't want them to be together partly because i wanted her to be with Decker and partly because Troy is just plan crazy i mean look what he does at the end! There were times when i said to myself it's okay he's just helping he's being a good guy and then there were times where i just felt like going into the book and pushing him in the lake myself. Lastly theres Carson =( Now in the beginning chapters he doesn't seem like much but people seriously pay attention to him while you read because before you know it he'll be gone and you'll be missing him. What happened to him i won't say because it's a spoiler but i have to say but that one part got a lot of tears out of me.

Now on to the few girls in the story Delany's mom. I'm not quite sure if i really liked her just because she didn't seem to be all there i mean yeah i know you're parents were horrible and you almost lost your daughter but jeez i felt like she was just plan mean sometimes like when Delany dropped the sauce on the floor she freaked out on her and i felt so bad it was an accident =/ Next theres Kara may i just clarify this now I HATE HER!!!! thats all i have to say. Lastly Janna she was a really good friend to Delany the whole book and even though she kind of lost it in the end she was still a very good person.

Well i'm really glad i got a chance to read Delany's story and i hope everyone out there does because it's really an amazing story it might not be truly written about someone but it felt real and thats all i need for a book to be good. Which is why i gave this book a solid 5 stars i overlooked the heart attacks because this book how can i say this? I guess it just really touched me and no other book has before. I know cheesy right? I think i've been reading too much!

"Rule number one of anime," Simon said He sat propped up against a pile of pillows at the foot of the bed a bag of potato chips in one hand and the TV remote in the other.

Review Night World No. 1 By: L.J. Smith

Night World, No. 1: Secret Vampire; Daughters of Darkness; Spellbinder (Night World,#1-3)Night World, No. 1: Secret Vampire; Daughters of Darkness; Spellbinder by L.J. Smith

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've wanted to read The Night World series for the longest time which is why i was really excited when my grandpa surprised me with it. I love bind-ups which is why i wanted to read the bind-ups instead of the single books. So anyways i really liked the plot behind all three books. The first book is about a girl named Poppy and her best friend James. She's just a normal guy and she's a vampire and it's against the rules for a person of the Night World to fall in love with or tell a human about the night world. James never plans to tell Poppy about it but she gets cancer and he's the only one that can save her. Thats all i can about the first book without giving spoilers =) So anyways i really liked Poppy's character because she was strong but she had the right amount of emotion in her. My favorite character in the first book though was Poppy's brother Phil. The reason why i liked him the most is because he was such a caring and loving brother. Most of the time brothers are annoying and rude but Phil was always looking out for her. I sometimes think that he was always watching her over her because they're twins and they have like a twin thing. Overall though the first book was really interesting and i liked reading about Poppy's story i hope that theres more about her in the next book.

The second book is about a character who appears in the first book and his name is Ash. He has three sisters who are vampires just like him. The three girls don't like the place they're living in so they decide to go live with there Aunt in a farm basically in the middle of nowhere. When they get there they find there aunt dead and they decide to bury her so no one will find out. But little do they know while they are burying her they are being watched by someone who is going to cause a lot of problems for them. Mary-Lynnette was watching these three girls from her bedroom window she knew they were burying something but she couldn't figure out what. After that night Mary-Lynnette becomes curious and it all goes down hill from there. In this book my favorite characters were Mark and Ash. Mark because he was so sweet and innocent and he just wanted to be with Jade even if she is a vampire. Ash i liked him because he was a bad guy who thought of humans as vermin until he meets Mary-Lynnette. The second book is really entertaining so i highly suggest it to you =)

The third and final book in the first book of the night word series is about two cousins who are witches named Blaise and Thea who are pretty troubled. They're both orphans and they need to stop getting in trouble because if they don't they'll be shipped off to a place where they don't want to go. Unfortunately though as soon as they get to the new school Thea falls in love which is you know fatal in the night word, and that is the whole problem that goes on in the third book. I love Thea and Eric they're such a good a sweet couple. I really shouldn't say any more then that but the two of them are so sweet together even though they don't acknowledge it at first. I wasn't to fond of Blaise but i did love Thea because she fell and love and she gave into it. I hate the girls that fall in love but they don't do anything about it for many stupid reasons but i can't stand those girls in books because they just make me want to scream =) Anyways i really enjoyed this book and L.J. Smith never fails to amaze me!

ARC Tour Destiny's Fire By: Trisha Wolfe

So this is my very first ARC Tour with A Tale of Many Reviews Book Blog Tours. I was emailed and asked to join so i went over to this site and read the synopsis and it sounded really interesting so i decided i would sign up. Now here i am writing my post extremely fast because yes i want it to look nice but i am so eager to share my review with you guys. Down below will be my review and the link where you can find all the other tour stops! (P.S. I lost the original email with the linky stuff so it's just a link that you'll have to click on down below to bring you to the page sorry!)

At first I didn’t know if I was going to enjoy Destiny’s Fire because I wasn’t really sure if it was my style. But I really liked the book! It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole entire time and not a lot of books lately have done that for me. Trisha Wolfe did an amazing job writing the characters and there relationships.

I really loved that the book was based in the future, that’s something I didn’t know about but it was an awesome surprise. The only thing about the book that threw me a little was I wasn’t sure what kind of creatures the characters were supposed to be. You know like normally in book your clear on whose human and whose vampire or werewolf, but in this book I wasn’t so clear on that but that’s okay because I was still interested.

Now with the relationships in this book they completely tore me apart in both good ways and bad. In the very beginning of the book I wanted Dez to be with Jace 100% you could so tell that they would be the cutest couple. But then Reese wandered in made Dez fall for him and of course he made me fall for him too. Which is why when Jace kissed Dez and Reese saw my heart broke. Then when Reese and Dez made up I felt better but then it broke again when Jace walked in on them. But that right there is one of the reasons why I loved this book it was like the best rollercoaster I’ve ever been on and I hate rollercoaster’s.

Destiny has an amazing support group in this book and she does so well handling herself. She feels horrible because throughout the book she manages to hurt and fall for two great guys but she’s able to keep them both in the end which I’m totally jealous of!! Sorry about the spoiler I had to let it out! Anyways I gave this book 5 stars because well because of all the reasons I listed above. I recommend it to anyone who loves a crazy love story mixed in with a battle of races basically. It’s really a fun book!

Well that's it i've been waiting to share my review with you guys for just about ever! I hope you all enjoyed it and if you have any thing to say and advice i'll take it all in the comments. Also click here to see the other blogs participating in this ARC Tour.

Which Team Are You On? #1 VAMPIRE DIARIES

Guess what?! I've decided to make my own meme. Now I’m not exactly sure like if people are already doing this and I just before I start I want to say if somebody is already doing this and I’m completely copying them just let me know and I’ll stop doing it or I’ll keep it but I wont call it my own. I'm not
saying this because I’m copying I was thinking about something I could do and this is something that I thought would be cool. So without further ado here are the rules of my new meme! (P.S. I didn’t make this button because idk how yet but when I learn how it'll be my own button now one I found off Google.)

Now since this is the first time I’m doing this it'd be awesome if you guys could give me a bit of feedback =) Here's how this is going to work every other Thursday I’ll be picking a show and choosing two characters they can be male or female but only chose two, and if it's that hard for you to chose let me know I’ll either give you an acception or I’ll do a part two the next time. Now for the rules in steps

1. Come check out the post every other Thursday to find out which show I’m featuring.
2. From that show pick two people both males, both females, or one of each. I'm sorry if you don't know the shows I pick!
3. Create a post with both of the people's pictures then down below tell about both of them and then why you like one more then the other.
4. At the end of the post in big letters which team your on! then come back here and post the link to your post in he comments. (I know usually there'd be a linky but since I’m new I’m not sure how to make one yet sorry!)

Alright is everyone clear on the rules? I know this first post is kind of lengthy but it's just because it's the first post I promise it'll be shorter in the future. If you have any questions, concerns, or you want to yell at me because this was your idea hit me up in the comments!

This Thursdays featured show is: The Vampire Diaries
 The reason I picked this is because well it's Thursday and this show is on tonight! The two characters I pick are none other than Stefan & Damon! (P.S. You can choose the same to people as someone else if you like)

First up we have the sexy Stefan Salvatore!
  • He's the mysterious vampire boyfriend/ex boyfriend of Elena. (Were not actually sure right now he's sort of lost his humanity!)
  • He'll do anything to keep his family, and friends safe even if it means losing everything.
  • He has a pretty sexy brother!
  • He'll look as good as he does now forever considering he's a vampire =)
  • He's really really sensitive well at first he was.
  • Lastly he's got some pretty nice muscles lol.

Next up we have the lovely brother Damon Salvatore

  • Damon is Gorgeous!
  • Since I wrote this for Stefan I’ll write it for Damon too I’ll he has an awesome brother
  • He's the bad guy that doesn't show his feelings but you see them come out once in awhile and its amazing
  • Black hair
  • Amazing dimples
  • He's pretty good boyfriend material considering he basically watches over his brothers girlfriend when he decides to leave.
  • He doesn't give up on the ones he loves no matter what.

    So after serious consideration and I mean serious I’ve been trying to figure out which one I’m going to stick with for hours! But I’ve decided that with Damon he doesn't have any humanity already so you probably wont be let down with him =) So yes I am on Team Damon!!!

    Okay guys thanks so much for joining me on my first Which Team Are You On? I really hope that you'll like it and decide to do this with me because frankly I love the idea and I love when you guys do it with me (not in a weird way hahaha) Remember if you want to join you certainly can just follow the rules above! Happy Thursday (P.S. Watch Vampire Diaries tonight at 8!)

Waiting On Wednesday

Welcome to my well its not my first but i haven't done one of these in a while so here it goes. Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. This weekly bookish meme is where we spotlight the books that were so eagerly awaiting! Which is pretty awesome because theres so many books out there that i'm eagarly awaiting!

Anathema By: Megg Jensen

His boots shuffled closer and I held my breath as his arms encircled me. His chin rested on my head. As my head shifted to acommodate his broad chin, I felt tingles course through my body.

Swoon Thursday: Bittersweet By: Sarah Ockler

So today while at school i was think what am i going to do for a post today? Since you know one of my new year resolutions was to have at least one post everyday. So i was thinking about all the memes that i do or have done in the past and i rememberd Swoon! which is where you basically write down like a few lines from a book that make you swoon. I really like this meme because i'm always reading books that make me swoon =) so i decided i'm going to start participating again! Swoon Thursdays is created by the ladies over at YA Bound be sure to check out their blog its so cool! To find out how to participate and the rules click on the blog name YA Bound above and it will take you to their page.

Here's what i swooned over this week =)

bittersweet By: Sarah Ockler

"I'm cold and horizontal, helplessly pinned beneath a boy. A cute one. Our skates are all tangled up and our hearts are knocking against eachother like they're ready to take this outside. His fingers cradle the back of my head just over the cement-hard ice; with his free hand, he brushes the hair from my eyes and i blink."

Hot right? lol this happened just after they smashed into eachother while skating they don't even know eachother and were already swooning! I hope you enjoy this as much as i did! Thanks for reading!

Busting The Newbie Blues!

So this week i've decided to be apart of Busting The Newbie Blues hosted by Small Review. This little event is going on throughout the while month of January! Now of course your all probably wondering what this is unless you've done it before but what this is is basically like a little questionnaire for new bloggers and old bloggers. There's two different sets of questions and you pick which one is best for you. The whole reason for this is to interact with other bloggers and for new bloggers to get help in the blogging world. This is my first year blogging so this is my first time trying this i hope it works out well. For the questionnaires and any questions you might have click on the Event name or the blog name above! I hope you decided to join! and thanks to anyone who takes the time to read the questions and my answeres below!

New Blogger Questionnaire!

1. When did you start your blog?
I started my blog about 5 months now. I started back in early August. I figured the summer would be the easiest time to start.

2. Why did you start your blog?
Well originally i started my blog because i wanted to get a little bit more publicity i guess you would say on the book that i started writing. When i started browsing the blogging world i came across a few Book Bloggers. Now this is awhile ago so i can't remember which they were but i thought that what they did was pretty cool and i decided that since im a book lover and i'm always reading every second i get that i would start one slowly and see how it went.

3. What has been the biggest challenge you faced so far?
Hmm I'd have to say the biggest challenge would be a challenge that i'm still struggling with which is trying to design my blog to make it eye catching! I'm good with computers but i'm still not sure how i would go about designing my blog yet i'm sort of hoping that this questionnaire will help me get some tips.

4. What do you find most discouraging about being a new blogger?
Well for me the most discouraging part is trying to talk to other bloggers. Outside of the computer i'm extremely shy i have a lot of friends but i still have trouble talking to new people. So that came along with me i have a hard time talking to them about books and other things that bloggers would talk about. People always say don't be afraid to talk to me and things like that but i still am sometimes and i'm not sure why exactly. Sometimes when it comes to bloggers that have been around awhile i'm scared to talking to them because it's like talking to a genius or a celebrety. I'm not exactly sure how else to explain in but that's my dilema.

5. What do you find most encouraging?
Well the thing that i love the most because it always brings my spirits up is getting comments! When i first started this blog i got none which was understandable because my blog was only a few weeks old. But now i get comments and it brings up my mood so much! I think that the blogging world would be nothing without comments!

6. What do you like best about the blogs you read? Have you tried to replicate this in your blog?
There's a few things i like about the blogs i read. When i'm reading a blog i love when there's polls on the side and i love when things are easy to find and i love when bloggers show off there fellow bloggers buttons on there sidebar. All of these things i also do on my blog. Like right now i have a poll up for my followers to help me decided which book i should read next. While i'm doing a challenge or participating on a blog hop i make sure that those buttons or banners are on the top, and last but not least I have a bunch of my fellow bloggers buttons on the sides but thats another dilema of mine i still dont have a button of my own.

7. What do you dislike about blogs you've read? Do you try to avoid this?
The two things that i hate the most. First is when you click onto a blog and you start reading a post and then *BANG* your heart jumps in your throat because this random music starts playing and your looking around to see if anyone saw you jump because sometimes its a little embarissing am i right? Second when your trying to read a post or comment but you cant see what your writing or what was written because they have so many other things overlapping everything and its just annoying!

8. Any advice for new bloggers?
My advice would be to try to talk to as many bloggers as you can to get tips. Some bloggers make posts about how to make your blog a better one read those! Enter a lot of giveaways because that helps you get a lot of books to start writing reviews and things like that and last but not least read other bloggers reviews and posts and comment comment comment because everybody loves comments! =)

9. Any question you'd like to ask a newbie or established bloggers?
My question to established bloggers would be is there any other way then posting them on goodreads and twitter and all those places to get people to read and leave feedback about either how the review is written or about the book it's written about.

10. Is there anything you'd like to tell us about your blog?
Well i always have a different post up everyday unless im deathly sick which im not so you'd never get bored.

Thanks for taking the time to read my questionnaire! Let me know in the comments if you've decided to follow me. I'll be sure to follow you right back not in a stalkerish way though! =)

ARC Review Ditched By: Robin Mellom

Ditched: A Love StoryDitched: A Love Story by Robin Mellom

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

***Spoiler Alert (I think)*** I wanted to read Ditched because I hadn’t read a love story in a long time and it seemed cool because of the whole prom night theme. I got it as part of an ARC tour on Friday and I finished it last night I couldn’t put it down but I had to a few times to open presents! I have to say though Robin did an awesome job on this book. There was so many times when I just wanted to put the book down because it wasn’t going my way but I kept reading because I knew the ending was going to be good. I also like that the book was able to make me chuckle and tear up most books can’t put that into one very easily.

I really liked the characters a lot Justina was a fun character she was just a girl who wanted to have an amazing prom night with her best friends who she has feelings for. But that didn’t happen for her. The journey she took around town all night was crazy and I’m not sure I would’ve been able to handle that I probably would’ve broke down after he left her at the prom. But Justina was determined to find her man even if she had to dog swap in the middle.

Now when she first started telling the story I was like wow who is this Ian guy and why does he keep running away. Where is he going? And why is he talking to Alyson! I didn’t like him at first because I really thought that he was being a jerk and ditching her which is why I couldn’t stop reading because I just had to figure out why he actually left. In the end thought Ian turned out to be a amazing guy and I’m happy about that. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if this book didn’t have a happy ending like it did.

While Justina was telling her story to the ladies in the 7-Eleven I was thinking about my 7-Eleven the whole time I kept wondering if this would ever really happen. My favorite characters for some reason where the mikes and their dates. I have no clue why but they just made me laugh something about how they wouldn’t give up on Justina but they still partied in the middle of it all was pretty cool and I liked it. In the end I would give this book a solid 5 stars!

Review Paradox: The Angels Are Here By: Patti Roberts

Paradox : The Angels Are Here By: Patti Roberts
** spoiler alert ** I won an e-copy of Paradox: The Angels Are Here By: Patti Roberts a while ago and I just never got around to reading it. I finally did because it is about Angels and I really love books about angels.

The book kind of threw me a bit because I wasn’t entirely sure what the whole book was exactly about because it flipped back and forth between Abaddon and his family Grace and her family and then those odd visions that Grace had. I enjoyed the book but I have to admit at some points I was really confused as to what was going on.

The very beginning was Abaddon and Theria. I knew that their world was in war and that’s why Their and her cousin left. Then it switched to Grace’s world and she got her little friend Hope which I thought was sweet because no little girl should be alone like Grace felt. I loved the characters of Grace and her father in the beginning so I was so sad when her father died.

When Angela and Wade came into the picture I was again very confused because I didn’t know like who they were. At first I thought that Angela could possibly be Theria but im still not sure. Anyone whose read the book if you could give me some clarification id love it!

Overall I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars because I did really like the book for reasons because even though I was confused I still kept turning pages to find out more and I really liked all the characters.
