Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine.

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
published by Harlequin Teen
Genre: YA
Release date: Aug. 1, 2010
What it's about:
Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron Fey, iron-bound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her. Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's alone in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.
I thought the first book in this series was something completely different than any faerie book I have ever read. The first book stops with a cliff hanger and I'm excited to see where this story is going!

Insatiable by Meg Cabot
published by William Morrow
Genre: Adult fiction
$22.99 (hardback)
451 pages

FTC: I received this book from the publisher with the full understanding I would give an honest review for no compensation.

What it's about:
Sick of hearin about vampire? So is Meena Harper.
But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn't believe in them.

Not that Meena isn't familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you're going to die. (Not that you're going to believe her. No one ever does.)
But not even Meena's precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets--then makes the mistake of falling in love with--Lcien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side. It's a dark side a lot of people, ike an ancient society of vampire hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.

The problem is, Lucien's already dead. Maybe that's why he's the first guy Meena's ever met whom she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena's always been able to see everyone else's future, she's never been able to look into her own.

And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.

Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future.... If she even has one.
My thoughts:
If you are the type of Twilight fan who doesn't like hearing people mock Twilight and gets offended by it, do not read this book! There are lots of Twilight bashing comments along with Sookie Stackhouse bashing comments but at the same time a lot of the ideas for the book was taken from those series. Like how Lucien gives Meena his coat, but it's still cold, how he can read her mind, and how he dazzles her.

This book was incredibly corny and not in a good way. There were lines like "even while furious, Lucien was still conscience of litter" and every time I would cringe while reading them.
Some of these corny things actually made me like a few characters better. Like Alaric. He was one of the only characters I actually liked. He was a tough guy who wears a Goofy watch and names his sword Senior Sticky. I enjoyed his character mostly because he was really the only character who developed during the whole book and the only one who actually seemed to have real feelings. Besides Alaric, the only other character I liked was the neighbor. She's a bit of an airhead vampire, but at least she's happy and trying to make everyone around her happy as well.
The book gave off the impression that someone told Meg she had to write a vampire book, and she went "uggghhh, okay" and came up with this book. It just felt like Meg herself wasn't really into this book and so it was hard for me to get into it as well.

My Rating: 6/10

Book of the Week

Book of the week is a new thing I've decided to do. Each week I will post a book I think deserves a little more attention.

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
published by Harper
$14.99 (paperback)
Genre: adult fiction
321 pages

What it's about:
Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver. Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn't simply about going fast. Using the techniques needed on the race track, one can successfully navigate all of life's ordeals.
On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through: the sacrifices Denny has made to succeed professionally; the unexpected loss of Eve, Denny's wife; the three-year battle over their daughter, Zoë, whose maternal grandparents pulled every string to gain custody. In the end, despite what he sees as his own limitations, Enzo comes through heroically to preserve the Swift family, holding in his heart the dream that Denny will become a racing champion with Zoë at his side.
A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human only a dog could tell it.
I've been thinking about this book a lot lately and everytime I think about it, I get teary eyed. I can not talk about this book without wanting to cry and I read this book a year ago. It is one of the best books I have ever read in my life. You don't have to be an animal lover to enjoy this book. This book will move you in a way no other book can.

Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Waiting On Wednesday (1)
Firelight By Sophie Lordan
published by Harper Teen
Release date: 9/7/2010
What it's about:

A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.
Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.
Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.
Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.

I think this book sounds pretty amazing. I've found that I really love stories about dragons and you add in a forbidden romance and I'm sold.

Early to Death, Early to Rise

Early to Death, Early to Rise by Kim Harrison
published by Harper
$16.99 (hardback)
228 pages

FTC: this is my book and I will not be compensated for reviewing it.

What it's about:
Madison Avery's dreams of ever fitting in at her new school died when she did. Especially since she was able to maintain the illusion of a body, deal with a pesky guardian angel, and oh yeah, bring the reaper who killed her to his untimely end. Not exactly in-crowd material. It's amazing that her crush, Josh, doesn't think she's totally nuts.

Now Madison has learned that she's the dark timekeeper, in charge of angels who follow the murky guidelines of fate. Never one to abide by the rules, she decides it's time for a major change to the system. With the help of some unlikely allies, Madison forms a rogue group of reapers who definitely don't adhere to the rules of the heavens.

But as she grapples with the terrifying new skills that come with b eing a timekeeper, Madison realizes she may not be prepared for what lies ahead--unless she gets some seriously divine intervention.

My thoughts:
I know I've said it before, but I'm going to say it again: You can't go wrong with a Kim Harrison book. You really, truly can't.

All of Kim's books have some of the same elements, 1) they are always paranormal 2) there is a small creature that is a side kick, 3) they are all incredibly amazing! :)

The idea for this series, to me, is very unique. Sure there are stories about dark and light fighting against each other, but this books puts a new spin on it. Both dark and light are still a part of Heaven. It's not like in Star Wars when dark=bad and light=good. Both light and dark are good and bad. The book really has you thinking about your views on the matter because the characters are constantly questioning their views. Is there really a thing as fate? Or is everything a matter of choice?

The first book in the series, Once Dead, Twice Shy, was about Madison dying and becoming the dark timekeeper. It was setting everything up and was about her personally. This book isn't really about her, but about the new system she is trying to set up. She is changing everything about the ways the dark reapers opperate. Let's just say, some people are having trouble with the new ways.

One thing I love about Kim Harrison books is the character development. All the characters are constantly learning new things about themselves and growing in personality. They always become better, stronger people. Even the bad guys grow and learn and half the time you are rooting for them as well. EtDEtR was full of character development. Nakita is constantly trying to learn what all her new feelings mean and how to blend in and trust people and through her, Madison is learning things about herself as well.
There is only one small complaint I have about this book and that is Josh. He's hardly in it! I love Josh's character and he needs to be in it more!

Okay, I lied, I have a second complaint and that is that the book is too short. Sure everything is solved and the ending is perfect, it's just I love the books so much I wish they were longer.

My rating: 10/10!

Quote from the book: "Madison is how she was christened, when she's angry her eyes tend to glisten. Lives she does save, no thanks does she crave. It'd be easier if you crapheads would listen." --Grace

The Lost Hero

The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
release date: Oct 12, 2010

Today Borders sent me an email saying that Rick Riordan is once again writing about Demigods and camp half blood!

What it's about:
It was hard to say good-bye to Percy--but fans don't have to! A lovable new generation of demigods have their own prophecy to prepare for, and their hero Perseus Jackson just may turn up in times of need.
Jason has a problem. He doesn't remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she's his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they're all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for "bad kids." What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea, except that everything seems very wrong. Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he's in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn't recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on? Leo has a way with tools. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. What's troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper's gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all, including Leo, related to a god. Rick Riordan, the best-selling author of the Percy Jackson series, pumps up the action and suspense in The Lost Hero, the first book in The Heroes of Olympus series. Fans of demi-gods, prophesies, and quests will be left breathless--and panting for Book Two.

Borders has the first two chapters up online to read already! I'm already addicted to the story. You can find the chapters here:

Hex Hall

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
published by Hyperion
$16.99 (hardback)
323 pages
FTC: I bought this book and will not be compensated for reviewing it.

What it's about:
Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.

By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.

As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.

my thoughts:
I saw this book at the bookstore and fell in love with the cover. It's a gorgeous cover and when I read that it's about witches, vampires, and shapeshifters, I knew I had to read it.

Hex Hall was a page turner and I had a very hard time putting it down. To be honest, the book wasn't very original. It had lots of the same theme as other books I've read, but the writing was captivating. Hawkins uses witty dialoge and upbeat tones to keep the story interesting.

The one problem with the writing is that there wasn't a lot of discriptions. Just enough to help paint a picture of what the characters and surroundings look like. One thing I would have liked to seen was more discriptions of what each of the prodigium could and couldn't do. There are so many different views of what vampires can and can't do. Can they be in the sun? Will garlic and a wooden stake kill them? What about holy water? Some of these are answered throughout the story, but I'd like to have more discriptions. Same with witchs. What can and can't they do? All the supernatural creatures needed a little more defining and maybe a few of Hawkins own ideas about the super natural need to be thrown in. Create her own type of monsters.

Overall, I enjoyed the book. It had funny moments and was...perky. It wasn't meant to load you down with emotions, it was meant to be fun and that's exactly what it was. There were twists and turns in the plot to keep the reader on their toes and turning the pages as fast as they could to figure out what is going on. The second I got done reading it, I went online to find out when the next book comes out (early 2011!!). I will definitely keep reading this series.

my rating: 9/10

The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
published by scholastic
$17.99 (hardback)
374 pages

FTC: I borrowed this book from a friend. I will not be compensated for reviewing this book.

What it's about:
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before--and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

My thoughts:
This book floored me. The intensity of it was so shocking I had to keep going. I'm going to quote a section from the book that I can't get over. It's been days since I've read the book and I'm still thinking about it.

"The arenas are historic sites, preserved after the Games. Popular destinations for Capitol residents to visit, to vacation. Go for a month, rewatch the Games, tour the catacombs, visit the sites where the deaths took place. You can even take part in reenactments.
They say the food is excellent" --Katniss, pg 145


For most of this book, I forgot it was a young adult novel. Katniss seems so adult like because she has spent her life growing up in fear of the Games, practically starving to death, and always being mindful of the Capital. It isn't until the very end of the book did I remember that she is only 16 years old.

Throughout the whole book, my stomach was in knots and I was freaking out for Katniss. I loved her character even if she was a little thick in the head sometimes. She is very strong, loyal, and pretty much amazing.

I would recommend this book to anyone with a strong stomach who love intense books. I finished this book in one day, staying up till 4am to finish it. It's been a few days since then and I still can't stop thinking about it.

my rating: 10/10!!

Fixing my blog

Summer is here and that means I have a lot more free time. I've decided to try and fix my blog with some of this free time so bare with me while I mess around with html and try to figure out everything. It's going to look pretty funny for a while and I'm sorry about that. Hopefully I figure everything out very soon.

I found an amazing site explaining how to create 3 column templates. Well this is an all around amazing site actually.

Three Column Template

Jealousy excerpt

The always lovely Devon Monk posted an excerpt of Lili St. Crow's upcoming book, Jealousy, on her blog. Yes that sounds a little weird having an author post an excerpt of a book on her blog that isn't hers, but it was a contest and they are friends. So here's the excerpt!

It took three glowing-eyed djamphir, all of them torn-up and bloody, to pick up Ash and start carrying him away. I pulled against Christophe's hands. "No, please—no, I've got to go with him, no—" "Stay still." Christophe dabbed at a scratch on my forehead, one I couldn't remember getting. "No broken bones, no bleeding. Dzie;kuje; Bogu, moj maly ptasku…" Blue eyes sharp, he glanced at my face. The blonde highlights had slid back through his hair as his aspect retreated. The fox had vanished, but I wasn't worried about that. "Be still." "I want to go with him." I glared at Christophe, my throat full of something. "Where were you?" "Keeping watch on your window. I told you I wouldn't leave you unprotected. I also told the wulfen to take care of you. When I get my hands—" Which brought up another question. I tried to slide away again. "Shanks. Did you see him? Is he—" Christophe grabbed my shoulder. "Robert? He's wounded but otherwise hale. Where is the loup-garou? I would have thought he'd be with you. Now please, Dru. Be still, calm down, let me work." "Work? Jesus Christ, those were vampires! Ash—is he—" "He may live. I would never have believed a werwulf could do this. But he's Broken, and…well. In any case, you're safe. Everything else is immaterial." "Reynard!" A familiar voice. Benjamin rocketed around the corner, his sneakered feet slipping in greasy crud and rotting vampire blood. He took in the scene, dark eyes passing over everything in a brief contained arc. "What the hell are you doing here?" He looked like hell. He was beat up and battered, bruises puffing up along one side of his face, his hair wildly disarranged. His clothes were torn too, and I saw with no real surprise that he was holding a single malaika in a white-knuckle grip. He saw me, too, and almost choked. His eyes blazed. "There you are!" He took a single step forward. "Where were you? What were you doing? How did you escape? We were about to—" "Leave her be," Christophe said mildly, and Benjamin turned white and almost swallowed his tongue. "Your cadre?" "Still efficient. Some slight wounding." But the djamphir's shoulders straightened and he actually looked proud. "My faith in you is restored." But Christophe didn't look away from my face. His eyebrows drew together. I swallowed hard and slumped against the wall. "Assess the damage to Milady's chambers, if you please, and send me Leontus. Thank you." I think it was the first time I ever heard a djamphir actually dismissed, though not in so many words. Benjamin made curious little salute with his free hand, glanced at me. His hair stuck up wildly. "Milady." And he vanished back down the hall, running flat-out. "Have you been sparring hard?" Christophe's hand came up. I almost flinched, but he rested his fingertips against my cheek. I'd almost forgotten the shadows of bruising on my face, thought that maybe the confusion would cover it up. I should have known better, he didn't miss much. "Anna." The single word blurted out, and I instantly regretted it. Christophe's face hardened, and he let go of me. A swarm of djamphir filled the hall now, mostly older students. They were making certain the vampires were out of commission, and the cracking and tearing sounds made my gorge rise. The hall was full of nose-scorching smoke too, from vampire blood eating into fabric. Christophe started barking orders, and every single one of them hopped to obey like he was a teacher or something. They even looked relieved that someone was there to tell them what to do. I know that feeling. I always felt better when Dad was around to tell me what the hell was going on and what my part in it was. I tried not to look at the mess on the floor. Every bruise and muscle I owned began to shake. My hair hung in my face, blonde streaking through the curls and retreating as the aspect boiled through me and receded. A lean blond djamphir arrived at a dead run with, of all things, a can of Coke. Christophe plucked it from his fingers with a nod and turned to me. "Here. You need the sugar." "Reynard." Leon appeared out of thin air. "The Council's got wind of this. They're en route." "It doesn't matter. She's safe." Christophe pressed my hand around the cold aluminum, the can already sweating condensation. "And I can afford to be caught now that I've run my course."

Jealousy comes out in paperback on July 29th. The excerpt was found on Devon Monk's blog at

Spirit Bound

Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead
published by razor bill
$17.99 (hardback)
489 pages

FTC: This is my book and will not be compensated for this review.

What it's about:
After a long and heartbreaking journey to Siberia, Dimitri's birthplace, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir's--and to her best friend, Lissa Dragomir. It's graduation, and the girls can't wait for their real lives outside of the academy's cold iron gates to finally begin. But even with the intrigue and excitement of court life looming, Rose's heart is still aches for Dimitri. He's out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance, and now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he has silenced her...forever.

But Rose can't forget what she learned on her journey--whispers of a magic too impossible and terrifying to comprehend. A magic inextricably tied to Lissa that could hold the answer to all of Rose's prayers but not without devastating consequences. Now Rose will have to decide what--and who--matters most to her. And in the end, is true love really worth the price?

My thoughts:
AHHHHH!!!!!! This is by far one of my all time favorite series.

The characters in this series are truly amazing. They are all so different and have their own personalities. The way they are written, it makes them feel so realistic. I normally have to yell and scream at characters and question why they are doing what they are doing, but not in these books. I trust the characters and am enjoying reading about them. There really are no stupid characters in this book. They are all so incredibly intelligent and it blows my mind.

Before I read the book, I had thought I'd known what was coming and how the last two books in the series was going to play out. I was only sort of right in what I thought was to come and the rest had me going "OH MY GOSH! THAT SO DID NOT HAPPEN!" I didn't see the story plot being anything like this, but I'm glad I was wrong.

I couldn't say this is my favorite book in the series, but I could never pick a favorite either. All the books are incredible and definitely a must read series.

There isn't much else I can say about the book. Richelle Mead is an author that I will read whatever she writes. Her books are amazing and the Vampire Academy series is one that should not be missed.

My rating: 10/10

Generation Dead by Daniel Waters

Generation Dead by Daniel Waters
published by Disney Hyperion
392 pages
$8.99 (paperback)

FTC: I borrowed this book from a friend. I will not be compensated for reviewing it.

What it's about:
All over the country, a strange phenomenon is occurring. Some teenagers who die aren't staying dead. But when they come back to life, they are no longer the same. Feared and misunderstood, they're doing their best to blend into a society that doesn't want them.

The administration at Oakvale High attempts to be more welcoming of the "differently biotic," but the students don't want to take classes or eat in the cafeteria next to someone who isn't breathing. And there are no laws to protec the "living impaired" from people who want them to disappear--for good.

When Phoebe falls for Tommy Williams, the leader of the dead kids, no one can believe it: not her best friend, Margi, and especially not her neighbor Adam, the star of the football team-- and others won't stand for it. Adam has feelings for Phoebe that run much deeper than just friendship; he would do anything for her. But what if protecting Tommy is the one thing that would make her happy?

My thoughts:
I thought that this was a really cool idea for a book, but it wasn't done the way I was hoping it would be. I was hoping there was going to be more details about how the characters were feeling and more details about Pheobe and Tommy. Most of the book was complaining about the "biotically different" kids. The reader is in the head of Adam and Pete during most of the story and not so much Pheobe. This bothered me. I thought there was too much time spent explaining Adam's feelings for Pheobe and how Pete is a crazy guy who can't get over the death of his girlfriend. I would have liked for the story to be more about Adam, Pheobe, and Tommy. The story was telling me everything, but not showing me.

That was my only complaint. I actually did enjoy this story and how it is a lot different than anything I have read recently. It was pretty cool seeing the differences the dead kids have from the living and from each other. Why some can walk and talk as naturally as if they were living and why some can hardly move at all.

I plan on continuing to read this series. The next book in the series, Kiss of Life just came out in paperback.

My rating: 8/10

Iron Crowned synopsis

I'm a huge Richelle Mead fan. Any book she writes, I'll read. I adore her Dark Swan series and Richelle happened to post the synopsis of book 3, Iron Crowned, today!

Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham is the best at banishing entities trespassing in the mortal realm. But as the Thorn Land’s queen, she’s fast running out of ways to end the brutal war devastating her kingdom. Her only hope: the Iron Crown, a legendary object even the most powerful gentry fear…Who Eugenie can trust is the hardest part. Fairy king Dorian has his own agenda for aiding her search. And Kiyo, her shape-shifter ex-boyfriend, has every reason to betray her along the way. To control the Crown’s ever-consuming powers, Eugenie will have to confront an unimaginable temptation--one that will put her soul and the fate of two worlds in mortal peril…

Unfortunately, this book isn't going to be released until early 2011 :(

The Reckoning by kelley Armstrong

The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong
published by harper teen
391 pages
$17.99 (hardcover)

FTC: I borrowed this from a friend who did not receive it from the publisher. I am not being compensated for my review.

What it's about:
My name is Chloe Saunders. I'm fifteen, and I would love to be normal. But normal is one thing I'm not. For one thing, I'm having these feelings for a certain antisocial werewolf and his sweet-tempered brother--who just happens to be a sorcerer--but, between you and me, I'm leaning toward the werewolf.

Not normal.

My friends and i are also on the run from an evil corporation that wants to get rid of us--permanently.

Definitely not normal.
And finally, I'm a genetically altered necromancer who can raise the dead, rotting corpses and all, without even trying.
As far away from normal as it gets.

My thoughts:
It has been almost a year since I have read the first two books in this series so I was having trouble remembering everything that happened. This book does not do a recap of everything that happens but instead throws you right into the action.

The first two books aren't normally books I put in a pile of books and tell people to read them. They were good but not for everyone. I wouldn't say that about this book. I thought it was brilliant and I wasn't able to put it down once I started. Lots of new questions were asked and unfortunately not all of them were answered. A little dissapointing but not enough for me to not like this book. It was filled full of action, suspense, mystery, and of course, teen love.

My favorite character in this series is Derek and has been since the first book. Normally this is not a persons first pick of best character but I truely do love his character. He's the strong willed werewolf who feels like he's a monster. I was extrememly happy when Chloe was leaning towards him and not Simon. Even the brooding monster needs love every once and a while.

I'm upset that this series has ended with this book because I do feel there are unanswered questions but at the same time, I see why it needed to end with this book.

my rating: 10/10. I loved it that much.
