Books

I know Ive been MIA for awhile on blogging. Its been pretty bad over here. I mean school and with my reading. I hate that I am not reading my books as much. I wasn't able to read The Vacancy which I felt terrible for because J.K. Rowlings was one of my favorite authors growing up. I will post up another review sometimes this week on the next set of books I have read. I have a couple of books that I wanted to do a little review on. Its been awhile since Ive done a review on books, so here it is:)


 Fan Girl by Ken Baker
Amazon: While staring you straight in the eye, far above the tips of her Toms, Josie Brant would swear that she does not like Peter Maxx, the teen sensation who causes every girl within a 100-foot radius to scream at ear-shattering decibels. Even if Josie may completely, totally, and unequivocally be his biggest fan.

So when Josie finds out her best friend has won a contest to meet Peter by stealing one of Josie’s songs, Josie is overwhelmingly shocked and upset—some of which flies out the window when Ashley introduces Josie to Peter as well. And suddenly, in a whirlwind of Tweets, IMs, texts, and phone calls, Josie finds herself in the middle of a flirtatious friendship that has the potential for complete harmony. But just when everything seems pitch-perfect, the paparazzi flashbulbs explode, along with any notion of a fairy-tale romance.

My Review: This book is more for a kid that is either in 5 grade or in middle school. It was very cute and if you know a middle schooler I highly recommend this book. Especially if they have a thing for a famous popstar:)



 Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

 Orphaned at an early age, Jane Eyre, leads a lonely life until she finds a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall. There she meets the mysterious Mr. Rochester and sees a ghostly woman who roams the halls at night. What is the sinister secret that threatens Jane and her new found happiness?

 My Review: This book was almost like most of the movies. I really wanted to read this book because I really wanted to get to know her point of view on everything. I wanted to know how she felt with Mr. Rochester. It did not disappoint.

                                                            Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Amazon: One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

My Review: The ending to this book made my mouth dropped.This is another great trilogy. You need to read this book. I love how four and Tris's relationship becomes even stronger and you can just feel that they truly belong together.



 The Maze Runner by James Dasher
 
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.
Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every thirty days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.
Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers. 
Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

My Review: If your not reading this book you need to be. Its mysterious, and full of action. I will rate it a must read book. 

Young adult are pretty much my favorite type of books but I have been looking for a good romance novel for adults. So If you all know of a good book...dont be shy:)
