Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Title: Haven
Author: Kristi Cook
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: February 22, 2011

One month into her junior year, sixteen-year-old Violet McKenna transfers to the Winterhaven School in New York’s Hudson Valley, inexplicably drawn to the boarding school with high hopes. Leaving Atlanta behind, she’s looking forward to a fresh start--a new school, and new classmates who will not know her deepest, darkest secret, the one she’s tried to hide all her life: strange, foreboding visions of the future.

But Winterhaven has secrets of its own, secrets that run far deeper than Violet’s. Everyone there--every student, every teacher--has psychic abilities, 'gifts and talents,' they like to call them. Once the initial shock of discovery wears off, Violet realizes that the school is a safe haven for people like her. Soon, Violet has a new circle of friends, a new life, and maybe even a boyfriend--Aidan Gray, perhaps the smartest, hottest guy at Winterhaven.

Only there’s more to Aidan than meets the eye--much, much more. And once she learns the horrible truth, there’s no turning back from her destiny. Their destiny. Together, Violet and Aidan must face a common enemy--if only they can do so without destroying each other first

Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Title: Delirium
Author: Lauren Oliver
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: February 1, 2011

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love - the deliria - blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

My thoughts:

Wow...that's the first thing that comes to mind, right now as i'm thinking of more to say. Lauren Oliver in my opinion is one of the best young adult authors that knows how to make you feel something for characters and their situations and just the whole plot in general. She makes you think and wonder about life, love, and death. What if the government was trying to cure the world from love. What would the world be like if everyone just walked around not caring about others, never having fun or laughing too much because if you did the government would come and take you away and put you in a psycho ward, beat you to death, or even worse they try to "cure" you of it all, from not loving EVER. Once I was done reading, which was 20 minutes ago, on my kindle, I was like when and why hasn't the next book come out yet?!!(which comes out in 2012, called Pandemonium). It was that amazing. I've never been so in love with a book since..forever really. I love it so much I'm going to buy the book when it comes out even though I have it as an arc. The characters were so realistic and lovable you felt everything they felt, every pain, happiness, and sadness. The plot was fantastic, but also torturing once it ended, especially when it kind of ended with a cliff hanger. This book isn't about folowing your heart or doing what's right, but to love and not be afraid of it and to feel alive everyday and all day. Here are a couple of quotes from the book that I loved or touched me in some way:

"The past is nothing, but a weight. It will build inside of you like a stone." (Delirium)- Lauren Oliver

" Love, the deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it, and when you don't." (Delirium)- Lauren Oliver

" I love you. Remember. They cannot take it." (Delirium)-Lauren Oliver

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Title: Paranormalcy
Author: Kiersten White
Release Date: August 31, 2010
Publisher: Harper Teen

Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.

But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal.

My Thoughts:

To Evie her life is just as normal as any teenager's. Capturing bad guys, watching teenage drama shows, having a best friend who's a mermaid, and working for a top agency that tracks down evil creatures, and having an ex-boyfriend who will never leave you alone, also seeing through all paranormal creature's glamour, and falling for a shape shifter, who's also a prisoner. Yep life couldn't be any more normal than Evie's. Until one day a disturbance that causes a scare through out her paranormal world, never knowing that she is part of it. Who knew instead of capturing evil creatures, she's meant to take their souls instead.
Paranormalcy is a different kind of book. Sure you have your vampires, werewolves, and other living paranormal creatures, but the thing is it doesn't just focus on one specific creature like most tiring paranormal books do now a days. It focus on different ones while also adding new ones and adding more abilities to some creatures, which I love because reading the same subject but different plot can be tiresome at times. I loved the character's especially Evie's mermaid friend, which I forgot her name, but that's okay most of the significant people who deserve rememberance are never remembered, sadly. Everything just fits perfectly from the action, relationship drama, friendshipsand the teen flirty dialogue. It wasn't forced or just slapped in to slap in, it felt natural. The plot was pretty good, except the ending. The ending was cute don't get me wrong, it's just that I was expecting a cliffhanger to make me anticipate the next one instead of say oh this was a good read, I wonder when the next book will come out, and then grab for the next book available to me. Besides the having any cliffhanger at the end, I'd say this book was 4 out 5. If you love sarcastic, but cute dialogue, stalker fairies, and kick butt action then this is a read for you. To express how much I enjoyed it i'm going to put two quote's from the book that I thought was really cute.


"Yes, I have a driver's license"

I leaned back against the wall, sighing. "Man, that must be so cool."

"It ranks right up there with lockers. In fact, sometimes I put my license inside my locker, and it's so cool I worry that the whole thing might explode with the sheer coolness of it all."
-Kiersten White (Paranormalcy)

"Lish tried to swear--which is always funny, because the computer won't translate it. It went something like this: "Bleep stupid bleep bleep faeries and their bleep bleep bleep obsessions. He had better stop bleep bleep bleep the bleep bleep rules or I will bleep bleep bleep the little bleeeeeeeeeeep."
-Kiersten White (Paranormalcy)

Review: Misguided Angel

Title: Misguided Angel
Author: Melissa De La Cruz
Publisher: Hyperion
Release Date: October 26,2010

After inheriting the dark Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence with her forbidden love, Jack. Now the two of them must embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the five remaining gates that guard the earth from Lucifer, lord of the Silver Bloods.

Back in New York, Mimi has been elected Regent of a crumbling coven. Struggling with her heartache over the loss of Kingsley and with her overwhelming desire to destroy Jack, she must focus all of her energy on a perilous new threat. Vampires are being abducted and their captors are planning to burn them alive online…for all the world to see. Help arrives in the form of Deming Chen, a Venator from Shanghai, who must untangle the web of deceptions before the killers strike again.

As the young vampires struggle for the survival of the coven, they uncover a deadly secret, a truth first discovered by Schuyler’s mother during the Renaissance but kept buried for centuries. And as the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler to a terrible choice that will ultimately map the destiny of her heart

My Thoughts:

As I was reading this book, I was pretty much dreading about how I was going to write this review since a) I love this series b) I love the author's other works such as the Au Pairs series and lastly c) I really was anticipating this book and really wanted to enjoy it. So first I must admit I didn't finish the book because I just couldn't take another minute of it, I just felt like my soul was dying with each turning page....okay I'm exagerating, but I did feel something similar. So when you read the summary of a book you expect it to be mainly about that, well to my suprise it really kinda wasn't. The whole time while reading I kept wondering is this the same author who wrote this pretty good series and if so what happened? Like most fans of this series i'm a Schuyler and Jack fan, but the thing is they were barely in it.

They were only in it until page 80 and that's basically where part one ends, then the rest is all about Mimi and Oliver and them being together and ect, even though I kind of expected that to happen if Schuyler ever left Oliver, that he and Mimi would team up or have some type of collaberation with each other. I feel like i'm some what being unfair to this book, but then again I feel like I gave it my best to like it, but just couldn't go further into it. The character's were off, especially when it came to Jack and Schuyler's short part. To me their short part felt like something out of a Soap Opera or one of those cheesy romance novels you usually see house wives read with Fabio on the cover. Mimi deffinitely didn't sound like the take no crap from anyone Mimi and so on and on. The book was pretty much maybe the shortest book out of the series, when I looked at the end of the book the first thing that popped in my mind was Did a book worm eat the rest of it? Is she writing the rest and putting it online for free because we are such awesome fans? Or was she just being slack and decided to spin crap because she know we'll buy it?hmm..interesting, right? To me it just felt like she was creating another story with in an already plotted out storyline and just either got confused with her other series that she's writing or just got bored and decided they will either love it or hate it. Maybe whenever i'm bored again i'll pick it up and read the rest of it, but until then it's staying on my bookshelf.

Waiting on Wednesday (3, 4,& 5)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.
This week i'm going to feature three upcoming books. Why?because:
1) I've been slacking off with "Waiting on Wenesdays"
2) The books i'm going to show are coming out within two weeks. So it's more of "Informing Wednesday" than "Waiting On" since it's not that far away :D

Title: Awakened (House of Night #8 (Sadly))
Author: P.C and Kristin Cast
Release Date: January 4, 2011

At the start of Awakened, the pulse-pounding eighth installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey has returned, mostly whole, from the Otherworld to her rightful place as High Priestess at the House of Night. Her friends are just glad to have her back, but after losing her human consort, Heath, will Zoey - or her relationship with her super-hot Warrior, Stark - ever be the same? Stevie Rae is drawn even closer to Rephaim, the Raven Mocker with whom she shares a mysterious and powerful Imprint, but he is a dangerous secret that isolates her from her school, her red fledglings, and even her best friends. When the dark threat of Neferet - who is coming closer and closer to achieving her twisted goal of immortality - and Kalona returns, what will it take to keep the House of Night from being lost forever, and what will one desperate girl do to keep her heart from being irreparably broken?

Title: Prom and Prejudice
Author: Elizabeth Eulberg
Realease Date: originally the first week of January, but recently moved to the week of December 27th, 2010, Link here for more info:

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single girl of high standing at Longbourn Academy must be in want of a prom date.

After winter break, the girls at the very prestigious, very wealthy, girls-only Longbourn Academy are suddenly obsessed with the prom, which they share with the nearby, equally elitist, all-boys Pemberley School. Lizzie Bennet, who attends Longbourn on scholarship, isn't exactly interested in designer dresses and expensive shoes, but her best friend, Jane, might be-especially now that Charles Bingley is back from a semester in London.

Lizzie is happy about her friend's burgeoning romance, but less than impressed by Will Darcy, Charles's friend, who's snobby and pretentious. Darcy doesn’t seem to like Lizzie either, but she assumes it's because her family doesn't have money. Clearly, Will Darcy is a pompous jerk—so why does Lizzie find herself drawn to him anyway?

Will Lizzie’s pride and Will’s prejudice keep them apart? Or are they a prom couple in the making?

Title: The Lost Saint
Author: Bree Despain
Release Date: December 28, 2010 (even though at Books- A- Million they put it out early)

The non-stop sequel to The Dark Divine delivers an even hotter romance and more thrilling action than Bree Despain's first novel. Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She gave her soul to the wolf to save him and lost her beloved mother. When Grace receives a haunting phone call from Jude, she knows what she must do. She must become a Hound of Heaven. Desparate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot - a newcomer to town who promises her that he can help her be a hero. But as the two grow closer, the wolf grows in Grace, and her relationship with Daniel begins to crumble. Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace becomes prideful in her new abilities - not realizing that an old enemy has returned and deadly trap is about to be sprung. Readers, raveous for more Grace and Daniel, will be itching to sink their teeth into The Lost Saint.

Just like almost everyone else with the House of Night Series, i'm in love with it :D, but lately it's been kind of going down hill.Plus most of my friends wish the series would come to an end instead of write 15 books to the series, there's no point to drag out uneccesary petty details. But hopefully this one will be good.

The second book showing, which is, Prom and prejudice which sounds really cute even though it's kind of a rip off of Pride and Prejudice (which I love the movie featuring Kiera Knightly in it). Also I loved Elizabeth Eulberg's last book The Lonely Heart's club which I did a review on here.

Last, but not least the one i've been dying to read since i've finished The Dark Divine before school was out of this year. As soon as I get some money i'm heading straight for Books A Million since they put it out, like not even a week of it's early date.

Looking for Alaska by John Green

Title:Looking for alaska
Author:John Green
Publisher:Dutton (Penguin Group)

Before. Miles "Pudge" Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave "the Great Perhaps" even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then . . . After. Nothing is ever the same

My Thoughts:

I'm not really sure how to start this review since this book left me with no words only tears. Just like almost every teen that feels like they are a reject or just doesn't belong where they are and want to find out what's more to life, Miles wants to find the "Great Perhaps". So to find that he goes to boarding school and tries to start a new life there, while never knowing who and what event is going to shape and change his life forever. Looking for Alaska is one of those books that once you finish you stop and think about life. How some of us take it for granted and how we never tell anyone how we really feel about them until it's too late. This book kind of reminded me of Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (also wrote a review on that book) except it's not about dying multiple times it's about a guy who wants to find more to life outside his dull town and meets someone who is totally different from what he's use to an event happens that makes him kind of question everything, but not even realizing until the very end that it's not about the "Great Perhaps",but about the labyrinth of suffering and a lot in between. Everything about this book from the message about living to the plot and Characters. Everything just seemed so real you felt for every little thing like it was actually happening to you. This book isn't all about the heavy stuff in life it also has it's hilarious moment's also. This book is absolutely awesome.

Book Hop (4) & Follow Friday (3)

Book Blogger Hop

"What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?"
ah, an interesting question, but I would have to say both are extremely important. Why? because the plot is what made you want to read the book and if the plot isn't what you expected and turns out to be a flop :( well, then it's not really much of a read and the characters are just as important also since it's basically what makes up a book and gives you the feel of some of the book I should say and if the characters are boring and plain it's pretty hard to keep reading since your basically in agony of having to read plain characters :/, but it's mainly the plot that makes me want to read the book the characters is important but not nessecarily what I look or think much about when selecting a book.

What did you study in college, or are currently studying and did it lead to your current 9 to 5 or are you doing something totally different?

Well I can't really answer this question much, but since I am going to college in the Fall of 2011 i'm going to double major in English and Library Science :)

Book Hop (3) & Follow Friday (2)

Here it is again the Book hop and . The topic for the book hop is:

Book Blogger Hop

"What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"

I would have to say the reviews and author guest posts are what I like most. I love to read about how another person feels toward a book that I either love or couldn't get into and also what authors have to say about the world they've created.

"Do you have an under-noticed author that you think we should all know about?"'s really kind of hard to say now since most of the authors that were unknown or undernoticed are becoming quite popular and are hitting the best sellers list even though their book has been out for years, but if I hit one i'll be sure to blog about it

Review: Last Sacrifice

Title: The last sacrifice
Pages: 594
Author: Richelle Mead
Publisher: Razor Bill
Source: Goodreads

Murder. Love. Jealousy.
And the ultimate sacrifice. Now, with Rose on trial for her life and Lissa
in line for the Royal Throne, nothing will ever be the same between

My Short Thoughts:
When I finished Last Sacrifice (which was 6 mins ago) my first reaction was OH MY GOSH, OH MY GOSH, and yet another OH MY GOSH with a silly smile on my face that I barely wear. No matter how many books I read after this, this I must say will forever be one of my favorite books and series. The ending was so amazingly beautiful I made a Facebook post and tagged Richelle Mead on it telling her how much she has made me happy. Throught the whole book I wanted to scream and yell (which I almost did during class today) whenever something happened that I didn't approve of, cry when I felt the pain of one of the characters, and just jump for joy for well...when something awesome or something I wanted to happen. I really don't know what else to say because I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't read it yet, but all I have left to say is bravo!

My Book Blog (1) & Blog Hop(2)

My first Follow My Book Blog and soon tomorrow will be my second Book Hop, but anyways todays question is:

What do you do besides Reading/Reviewing as a hobby?

My Answer:
I love to do well lots of things like:
1) Playing Sims (I'm obsessed)
2) going on or looking at photography
3) on facebook
4) texting my friends
5) watching movies
....I think that's about it lol I don't really do much except that and read :)

Blog Hop (2)

"What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"
I would have to say Fallen (even though I love the book cover). I wouldn't say I didn't enjoy it since I didn't finish it, but I felt like it was missing something, trying a little too hard, and was pretty much repetitive with some stuff. I can't remember what exactly was repetitive since i've read so many books after I stopped reading it, but I don't know maybe whenever I don't have something to read or any money to buy anything i'll finish it and give it another shot but until then it's on my bookshelf collecting dust :( I feel bad.Oh and I didn't review it since well I didn't finish it lol.

Waiting on (late) Wednesday

Release Date:April 12th, 2011
Publisher: Harper Collins
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Pages: 400

Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can’t find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students—for every grade from kindergarten to twelve.

Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya's determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya's home, and they won’t go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts getting negative vibes from certain people and things. It doesn't help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret—and he's interested in one special part of Maya's anatomy: Her paw-print birthmark

Why I'm Excited:
I'm so excited for this book it doesn't even make sense. I love her first young adult series, The Darkest Powers (The Summoning, The Awakening, and The Reckoning), it's an awesome series with likeable characters, a little bit of witty dialogue, romance, and just anything you can name :) I have a feeling this series won't fail me..I haven't read her other series for adults but I might give it a try. I find it funny how the main character's name, Maya, is my name.

Before I Fall by: Lauren Oliver

Title: Before I Fall
Author: Lauren Oliver
Release Date: March 2, 2010
Publisher: Harper Collins

What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all: the world’s most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.

Instead, it turns out to be her last.

Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.

My Thoughts:

When I first saw it in books a million I was like, I got to have this book, not because of the summary, but because of the cover (when doesn't a cover catch someones eye). So instead of reading the summary in the store like most normal people I decided to look it up and read the summary and the reviews of it on the comments of the site I was on. So I bought it and at first I was like ah this is going to be good but, then I got so sucked into other books I stopped reading it until I finally sat down and read it all to find out I should of punched myself for having myself stop reading it. It's one of those books that once you finish it, it makes you look at life differently for a split second.

It made me look at everyone passing me in the halls at school and think that person could be my best friend or the person I need in my life to shape me into the person i was meant to be. Or maybe I really need to stand up for people more and just deep questions and thoughts I rarely ever think of. I must say this is one Awesome book, slow beginning yes, but what book doesn't, but I love the characters they just seemed so...i don't know the word for it, either way if you love books on life, friendship, second..I mean seven chances, and some laughs, then this is the book for you.

Book Blogging Hop (1)

This is my very first Book Blogging Hop and i'm so excited about it :D. Book Blogging Hop is all about book bloggers, readers and ect to come together and mingle and share what we all (hopefully) love, which are books. The question for today is:

What's your favorite book cover?

It's pretty much hard for me to choose just one book cover that's my absolute favorite, so i've decided to choose two that either gives you a clue of what covers I find pretty awesome or the covers that some what moved me in a way. I love book covers that tell stories without you having to pick up the book to read the summary of it. I love the mysterious feel of both book covers. The balance of blue, black and grey that makes you feel the sadness of the girl on the Fallen book cover or wonder about the steps on Beautiful Darkness. Is the girl lost? Is she cursed? Did she lose her family?Where do those stairs lead to? How old are they? Are they some type of key place a person is suppose to be or find? questions like that pop up in my mind. As you can see I have a wonderous/imaginative mind and it doesnt take words to trigger it.

Waiting on Thursday....

Cryer's Cross
Available: February 8, 2011

The small town of Cryer¹s Cross is rocked by tragedy when an unassuming freshman disappears without a trace. Kendall Fletcher wasn’t that friendly with the missing girl, but the angst wreaks havoc on her OCD-addled brain.

When a second student goes missing - someone close to Kendall’s heart - the community is in an uproar. Caught in a downward spiral of fear and anxiety, Kendall’s not sure she can hold it together. When she starts hearing the voices of the missing, calling out to her and pleading for help, she fears she’s losing her grip on reality. But when she finds messages scratched in a desk at school - messages that could only be from the missing student who used to sit there - Kendall decides that crazy or not, she’d never forgive herself if she didn’t act on her suspicions.
Something’s not right in Cryer’s Cross - and Kendall’s about to find out just how far the townspeople will go to keep their secrets buried.
Why I can't wait:
it seems very different from almost everybook i've far. It doesn't have vampires,werewolves, or shapeshifters, which I love since i'm sort of getting tired of them lol. I also love the author's first series The Wake Trilogy. Just the summary itself gives me goosebumps and the thrill of something new, interesting, is about to happen and come out. Also I miss reading books that has some sort of mystery to it.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Carmen got the jeans at a thrift shop. They didn't look all that great; they were worn, dirty, and speckled with bleach. On the night before she and her friends part for the summer, Carmen decides to toss them. But Tibby says they're great. She'd love to have them. Lena and Bridget also think they're fabulous. Lena decides they should all try them on. Whoever they fit best will get them. Nobody knows why, but the pants fit everyone perfectly. Even Carmen (who never thinks she looks good in anything), thinks she looks good in the pants. Over a few bags of cheese puffs they decide to form a sisterhood, and take the vow of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants . . . the next morning, they say good-bye. And now the journey of the pants -- and the most memorable summer of their lives -- begins

My Thoughts:

Okay, so I must admit that I don't read friendship books much, but this book I must say is pretty good. Also I know this book is like early 2000's old :), but obviously, I was one of those people who decided to watch the movie instead of read the book. I love the characters, especially Bee with her always on the go attitude, letting nothing stand in her way to what she wants and Tibby's pessimistic attitude, always thinking the world and everyone in it is bad and how happiness doesn't exist, I guess basically she's another me :p.
When it comes to how real everything in the book is it's pretty realistic when involving teenagers, emotions, family issues, just almost everything really. It kind of made me forget the writer is an adult instead of a teenager.
The whole time while I was reading I was like oh, one of my friends is this character and so on and on. At first it was kind of slow paced to me like almost every book out there, but it picks up the pace once it leaves Carmen's point of view. If you want a book that's full of friendship, family issues and love, finding yourself, and a magical set of pants then this book is for you.

The Lonely Book Club by Elizabeth Eulberg

Penny is your normal type of girl, despise her name being named in honor of the Beatles Band. It was an ordinary day like no other when Penny discovered something that involved the boy she thought loved her and basically broke her heart. After that hurtful event Penny has sworn of guys and decided to make a club called The Lonely Hearts Club. One by one girls from her school started joining causing a big controversy with the boys and a couple of the faculty and staff. In between all the events happening with her from her friends to how large her group has become she starts falling for a guy she thought she wouldnever date, the question of it all is can she keep her vow in swearing off boys for good. Read The Lonely Hearts Club. :)

My opinion: it's a really awesome book. It has it's funny parts, sweet/cute, and even touching moments. The characters remind you of how your teenage life was or is, if your still a teenager. It has lots of real moments, things that would happen in real life than just seeing in the movies. This is truely a book for anyone who has given up on love, fallen in love, or want's to know what the adventure is like.
