Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin

I wasn't really sure if I was going to like this book when I first bought it. I mean, the only reason I bought it was because it was $3 on amazon, and then when I went to value village it was like $3 there too. So I just bought it at Value Village because I love picking up books there. They're like brand new most of the time! Anyways. This book is about a girl named Elizabeth, or Liz, as she likes to be called, and she's been in a car accident and died. She doesn't understand where she is or what's happened, like most people would, I'm assuming. And she's really confused and scared about it. She goes through that whole depressing stage, wanting to go back to her life, and everything works out like it should. Well, almost. I'm not going to say anymore about it. I really liked this book. I haven't read anything like it before, and I'm not sure I will read anything like it for a long time. Which is awesome. If you haven't read this book yet, I definitely recommend you should. It's written younger than I usually like books to be, like how she acts like a child, but it makes sense in the end.


Thanks for reading! C:

X-Men by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

I absolutely had to read this. Although, I'm not sure if I read this exact book, because I read the adult novelization, and all I could find on here was the children's novelization with pictures.. Anyways. I would have put it at five stars, but for the first half of the book the editing was shit. And this might be because I'm a total X-Men nerd, but they messed up Rogue's name, Marie, they put it as Mary. And then half way through the chapter they changed it to Marie, and then half way through the next chapter they changed it to Rogue. Crazy, right? Anyways. A funny thing in this book was how they didn't get the locations in Canada right. Apparently, where Logan was, was Alberta, British Columbia, Canada. And that was the exact location. Apparently he was split between two provinces, and he wasn't in any kind of city at all.. Which is weird. I posted a picture of it on my facebook and people thought it was funny.  But aside from those things, and a couple of the events were mixed up, this was a great book. Short, but it had the movie almost down pact. It was like I was watching the movie all over again. Definitely read it if you like movie novelization books, and if you don't, well you can always read it for fun, like I did. (: Thanks for reading!


Princess Academy by Shannon Hale

First thing first, I'd like to express how much I did not like this book. I don't know what it is that first ticked me off about it. Maybe it was the way it was written, maybe it was just the whole subject of the book, I don't know. What I do know, is that I definitely did not like this book. It was boring. It was hard to read, and I ended up skimming most of it until I was finally finished. Ugh Just Ugh. It was so dumb. I don't like it at all, and I'm dreading the next one. Lol. Don't ask why I'm still going to read the rest of the series, I just am. It's a thing that happens a lot. I DON'T LIKE IT! The characters were boring, the events that happened in the book weren't events at all, just little girls crying and bitching about the teachers. Ugh. And what was the point of this whole book? To get married? Why go to school to get married when you can just do whatever the hell you want and get married anyways. DUMB. That's all I'm going to write about this because if I write anymore I'm just going to bitch and whine. :D Also, I don't think I've ever had a one star book on my blog before! haha.

Balthazar by Claudia Gray

5 of 5 stars falseBalthazar (Evernight, #5)I really liked this book. I can never remember that last book in the series though, but eventually it comes back. Although I couldn't remember most of the people in this book, I still remembered some of them. Like Balthazar. Because, I mean, come on. Who forgets Balthazar. He's tall dark and handsome. But anyways. This book was full of action, and also full of weird things happening. Like Skye is able to see ghosts, and like in this other book I read, she can see their deaths. Her powers grow stronger when she's bitten by a vampire, and by the end she can talk to them. I hope that's not a spoiler. I mean, it's not like I'm telling you who she talks to and why, right? haha. :P But anyways. I was sure her 'best friend' Madison was going to help her at some point in this book, but I was wrong. I guess friendships that form in a day don't last in books. Idk. It's weird. lol. I was hoping there were going to be more people from the rest of the series, but nope. not even a little bit. just some mentioning, but that was fine with me. I definitely recommend you read this. But definitely read the other one's first if you haven't already! :D


Falling Under by Gwen Hayes

I'm really not sure what to say about this book. I couldn't really get into it at the beginning, and i still wasn't totally into it at the end.. I mean the ending was pretty good, although when I say the ending, I mean the chapter before the ending.. I wasn't a big fan of the actual ending. I wasn't sure what was happening when the perspective's changed, but I figured it out soon enough. Like I said, I wasn't always there. I don't know what it was about this book, but It kind of seemed like I was only half there when reading it.. I dunno. It was weird. Demon's are always an interesting subject, but for most of this book I thought it was about faries.. which can't be good. It's weird. I don't get it. But whatever. It's an alright book. Read it if you want. I wouldn't like. force you to read it like some other books, but I can still say read it if you want.
