Netgalley Nockout Challenge Sign-Up :D

When I saw this challenge later today, my first thought was: "this challenge was created for me"!!
I just love getting ARCs. When I get approved for one I feel like the best blogger in the world because a publisher had actually visited my blog and found it worthy enough to feature a book!! That's really flattering. My blog isn't big enough for me to receive physical ARCs and I don't have any intention to request them either because I just LOVE reading on my Kindle.
The problem is that recently I got way too many eARCs. And it's not like I don't have anything else to read!!! I thought I'm the only one in this situation... Well, apparently not. So come on, LET'S KNOCKOUT THOSE REVIEW EBOOKS!!! :D

Book Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)
Shatter Me

Author: Tahereh Mafi
Genre: YA dystopian, romance.
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication Date: November 15th 2011

"You can't touch me," I whisper.

I'm lying, is what I don't tell him.

He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him.

But things happen when people touch me.

Strange things.

Bad things.

No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon.

But Juliette has plans of her own.

After a lifetime without freedom, she's finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she'd lost forever.

When I saw this cover and read the synopsis of this book, I was sure this book is going to be like Divergent - something about a strong girl living in the distant future and a lot of brutal fights. I have nothing against this type of books, I actually enjoy them a lot, but recently I got a bit tired of all these action novels.  I'm more of a romance girl. There's nothing I like better than a good, heart-warming love story.

That's why I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this book was actually romantic. The author has managed to write a dytopian novel in which the romance and the emotions between the two main characters are the main subject. That made me think about the whole genre of dystopia.
I wonder who has decided that a dystopian novel has to be action-packed and nothing more than that? Who says it can't be romantic? Tear-jerking? Filled with love and hatred and all kind of flaring emotions? Who says it can't break your heart into pieces and then glue them together?

From these questions you can probably understand what made this book so great. I couldn't put it down from the very first page. I was sucked into Juliette's world - I saw everything through her eyes. I felt her despair, her terrible childhood memories, her pains and mental scars. The writing style of this book was very unusual, with a lot of repeated words and confused thoughts just scattered on the pages, but it was just perfect for this specific story. I love how I could get a glimpse of what was actually going through Juliette's mind, along with her confusion and thoughts she tired repress.

She acted like a real teenage girl when she met Adam. She recognized Adam as a threat at the beginning, but like a real teenage girl near her crush, she slowly fell for him. He, from his side, made her feel comfortable and loved near him until she let him see her real self. With the help of him, Juliette transformed from a closed up, untrusting, afraid-of-her-own-powers girl, to a strong, self-confident women. The character development of her was amazing and that's why she was a great main character.

I would recommend this book to people who enjoy romantic, emotional stories. This is not the action-packed novel you might expect, and it might not be for everyone, but personally I just loved almost everything about it except for some minor plot issues. I am sure the next book will be even better because of the ending that left me dying for more. Tahereh Mafi is an extremely talented author and I can understand all the hype around her books.

  • Unique, beautiful writing.
  • Great character development.
  • A different, new kind of dystopian novels.
  • A lot of romance and emotions involved.
  • The plot was a bit dragging at some points, but other then that nothing major.

The Neptune Project - High ResTitle: The Neptune Project
Author: Polly Holyoke
Publisher: Disney/Hyperion Publishing
Publication Date: May 21, 2013

With her weak eyes and useless lungs that often leave her gasping for air, Nere feels more at home swimming with the dolphins her mother studies than she does hanging out with her classmates. Nere has never understood why she is so much more comfortable and confident in the water than on land until the day she learns the shocking truth—she is one of a group of kids who have been genetically altered to survive in the ocean.

These products of the “Neptune Project” are supposed to build a better future under the waves, safe from the terrible famines and wars and that rock the surface world.But there are some big challenges ahead of her: no one ever asked Nere if she wanted to be part of a science experiment; the other Neptune kids aren’t exactly the friendliest bunch, and in order to reach the safe haven of the new Neptune colony, Nere and her fellow mutates must swim across hundreds of miles of dangerous ocean, relying on their wits, their loyal dolphins and one another to evade terrifying undersea creatures and a government that will stop at nothing to capture the Neptune kids … dead or alive.

Fierce battle and daring escapes abound as Nere and her friend race to safety in this action-packed marine adventure.

Blog Tour: Dancers and Divas by Kathy Petrakis (Review + Giveaway)


Passion and Pain (Dancers and Divas #1)
 Book 1: Passion and Pain

Contains mature content - recommended for ages 15+ 

Does passion and desire guarantee success? Can friends really be trusted? Can true love be found beneath lust and deceit? 

These are questions tenacious street dancer Elena Martinez faces as she struggles to compete against the most talented students at New York’s top Performing Arts High School. Along with her best friend, the carefree and mischievous Sebastien Duval, they are determined to make center stage. 

But the singing diva Letitia has other plans. Beautiful, talented and popular, her desire for revenge could ruin everything for Elena and Sebastien. Now, they must fight against prejudice, treachery and deceit as Letitia sets out to destroy Elena’s friendships, her romance, her dignity and her dreams. Can Elena win the battle for true love, happiness and success?

My Review:

Wow. This book was so good. It has exceeded my highest expectations. I finished it more than a week ago and I'm still quite shocked at how great and amazing it was.

Performing arts are one of my greatest loves and my dream. I just love watching people perform singing, dancing and acting and I always dream to be as great as they are...
That's why I felt like this book was written for me!! It was about an average girl, my age, practically living my dream.

Elena Martinez, a high school Freshman and Sophomore during the book, is very talented in the performing arts. She studies in a special school for arts in New York and there she meets other kids just like her. Some of them are nice and friendly, and other, like Letitia, are evil and all they want to do is ruin her life. This book describes Elena's life in high school - her friends, her enemies, her first love and her first heartbreak.

Elena was definitely my favorite character of the book. I loved reading about her passion for dancing, singing and acting. She was very sensitive and emotional and has managed to show her feelings while performing. That was why she was so great at what she was doing.
I loved reading about her each time reaching a small goal in the way to become what she wanted most - a professional dancer. Even when she was going through lot, she never gave up and was always strong and determined to succeed. A lot of things happened to her in this book and I really felt sorry for her, especially at the end, but I loved how she has managed to overcome everything and learn from every situation.

I loved the romance in this book. It was actually the best part. Elena had her first boyfriend and her first true love ever and it was so great to read about what she felt towards Jay. They made a beautiful couple at the beginning, but Jay's intentions about her weren't clear during the whole book. I couldn't be sure if he was good for her or not, but what I did know was that he wasn't the best match for her.
Elena's best friend was a guy she knew since she was 12 - Sebatien. He was the best match, and I wanted to slap her the whole book and yell at her because she couldn't see that!!! Sebastien was so miserable and I couldn't help loving him and wishing I knew him in real life.

This book made me feel all sorts of emotions in such an intensity! I cried and laughed, I felt joy and desperation, I felt love and utter hatred. I was inside the book, living the story. It felt amazing and I just couldn't put the book down, couldn't get enough of it. I almost cried at the end only because it was over.

I recommend you all to read this book. It is and indie read, but be sure it is much better than most published books out there. I haven't started the second book yet, but I'll do it very soon because I can't wait to get more of this beautifully written story and characters. It is, undoubtedly, an all-time favorite of mine.


Book Two: Bittersweet

Can secrets stay hidden forever? Can people really change? Are some mistakes unforgivable?

As Elena and Sebastian embark on a fresh start, will Letitia keep his secret, or will she use it to destroy them?
As Veronika falls in love, Frankie is out of rehab and trying to make amends, but will it last for either of them?
Meanwhile, as Anya is torn between loyalty to her Nana and love for Darius, could Darius fall for the new temptress, Rosa? With her stunning looks, her powerful, sensual dancing and her desire to seduce, she has everyone nervous but what secret is she hiding?
Continue the roller-coaster journey with your favorite characters as they try to survive junior year at the country’s top performing arts school.

Book Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave (The Fifth Wave, #1)
Title: The 5th Wave

Author: Rick Yancey
Genre: YA post-apocalyptic, aliens.
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Publication Date: May 7th

The Passage meets Ender’s Game in an epic new series from award-winning author Rick Yancey.

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

After reading so many five-star reviews for this one, I was expecting it to be amazing, one of the best books of the year. I tried sooo hard to love it the way I expected, but unfortunately I just couldn't. The best I can say about this book is that if was good.

I'll start with what I did enjoy in the book, which was the idea. The author had a really great idea for a post-apocalyptic world, one I've never read before. He took the whole aliens genre into a new level, that's for sure. When someone says an alien, people imagine a green creature that travel in a spaceship and can't do much harm... well, not anymore!!! In this book aliens are extremely smart, are a thousand years ahead of us in technology and are dangerous, vicious creatures. Their plan was to wipe out the entire human population, and they did that in such a systematic way that that I was truly creeped out. They knew how people think and attacked them in their weaknesses, which made me think about some of the human natures, like finding comfort in groups, giving in to desperation, easily trusting.

I think that what made me disappointed with this book was mainly the writing. This book was written in a really weird way. I think it was supposed to resemble speech,  with a lot of speech-like sentences, but it didn't really work. All the fighting and action scenes were hard to follow because of that. I had to re-read parts a lot of times.
The alternating POVs bothered me. I usually like getting different perspectives on the plot, but here it was done in a very confusing and hard-to-follow way. I didn't have time to really connect to any of the characters.

Talking about the characters, I had some issues with them, too. Cassie was okay. She was very brave and strong, just like I like main characters to be, but I just didn't really CARE about her. I can't explain why, really. She just felt too distant and didn't really pass as a teenage girl in the way she thought and spoke.
I liked the other main character better than her (I can't tell you who that is, because it's a spoiler) and that's why I enjoyed his parts better. His life story was described in a way that made me feel for him and unlike Cassie he really changed and matured during the book, .
The other characters were pretty unimportant, which was also not so good. I always enjoy great supporting characters, but in this book there weren't any.

The book started to get really good only 70% through. Finally I got some answers and everything became less confusing. That's when I started to really enjoy the book. Even the writing got better. This book gained one more star from me only because of the last 30%.

As I said, despite its flaws, this book was good and I don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it. I can see the potential it has to be something phenomenal and I really hope its sequels will be much better.
I don't think it deserves all the hype, but I do recommend you to read it and see for yourselves.

  • Great, intriguing idea.
  • The last 30% were awesome.
  • Quirky writing.
  • The action scenes are hard to follow.
  • The main characters were hard to relate to.
  • Shallow supporting characters.

Blog Tour: Holding On and Letting Go by Lucy Kelly

Hi guys!! This is my tour stop for the amazing book Holding On and Letting Go. I'm currently reading it and I will review it as soon as I finish (:

Holding On and Letting Go (The Ties That Bind Us, #1)
Holding On and Letting Go

Author: Lucy Kelly

Release date: March 2013

Tour organized by: Irresistible Reads Book Tours

Get the Book:

Amazon , Barnes and Noble , Goodreads

Book Description:

Is there a way to describe the ties that bind us together? What happens when one of those ties is unexpectedly severed? Can everything else remain the same? Will the other ties hold strong?

Two years after her little brother's death, sixteen year old Emerson Caulfield returns to a home that she spent the last two years missing. In theory, everything should be the same. Her best friend, Matt, still lives next door. Her house is in the exact same condition as they left it. The scenery and hallways haven't changed, yet for Emerson, everything is completely different. The place may be the same, but Emerson is most certainly not. She returns home hurt, angry, and miles away from the girl she once was.

The 60,000 word novel alternates between the perspectives of Emerson, who is struggling to keep breathing on a daily basis, and Matt, who wants to have his old best friend back so badly that he is willing to overlook the fact that she has completely changed. Though their friendship and relationship is a major part of the story, it takes backseat to the unique bonds between siblings, what happens when your worst enemy is in fact yourself, and the hardships that come with growing up and changing.

About the Author

I'm not really going to write a biography. Though I am supportive of the high schools and colleges I have attended, it's probably not actually the most interesting stuff about me. I'm going to do a list of five really random things instead for now.

1) I like making lists. It's weird, and I never actually scratch things off of the list.
2) I sing and dance in the car like a maniac.
3) For the first six years of my life, I truly believed a shark lived under my bed. I watched Jaws at too young of an age.
4) Without a doubt, I am a night person. I am enormously grumpy when first woken up in the morning.
5) When I was younger, I read almost every Nancy Drew book, both new and old. I had a notebook, and I would take notes to see if I could figure out who the "bad guy" was before Nancy did. We probably tied.

Release Day Launch: When You Were Here by Daisy Whitney (Review + Excerpt + Giveaway)

When You Were Here
When You Were Here

Author: Daisy Whitney
Genre: YA/NA realistic fiction and romance
Publication Date: June 4th

A eARC was provided by the publisher for the blog tour. Thank you so much!!
Filled with humor, raw emotion, a strong voice, and a brilliant dog named Sandy Koufax, When You Were Here explores the two most powerful forces known to man-death and love. Daisy Whitney brings her characters to life with a deft touch and resonating authenticity.

Danny's mother lost her five-year battle with cancer three weeks before his graduation-the one day that she was hanging on to see.

 Now Danny is left alone, with only his memories, his dog, and his heart-breaking ex-girlfriend for company. He doesn't know how to figure out what to do with her estate, what to say for his Valedictorian speech, let alone how to live or be happy anymore.

When he gets a letter from his mom's property manager in Tokyo, where she had been going for treatment, it shows a side of his mother he never knew. So, with no other sense of direction, Danny travels to Tokyo to connect with his mother's memory and make sense of her final months, which seemed filled with more joy than Danny ever knew. There, among the cherry blossoms, temples, and crowds, and with the help of an almost-but-definitely-not Harajuku girl, he begins to see how it may not have been ancient magic or mystical treatment that kept his mother going. Perhaps, the secret of how to live lies in how she died.

My Thoughts

This review is going to be very hard to write for me. This book was so complicated and different that I find it difficult to gather my thoughts about it... I will try my best, though!

This book tells the story of Danny, an 18-year-old guy that lost everyone he loves. His father died in a car accident 6 years ago, his adopted older sister left for China and never came back, his girlfriend dumped him last summer and now him mother died after a long fight with cancer.

The beginning of the book describes Danny's loneliness and desperation. It was really hard for me to picture his situation because it was so terrible. He was all alone in the world and people talked to him only because they pitied him. At the beginning Danny acted all carefree, as if he had nothing in the world to live for. He hit cars by purpose, acted in a very unfriendly way near his friends, insulted his ex-girlfriend and had a romance with an adult... I tried to feel sympathy for him but I just couldn't because of his terrible behavior. That's why I almost DNFed the book in the first 10%, he was that hard to relate to.

Danny lives like that for a while, without having any idea of what to do with his life. And then he gets a letter in the mail from Japan regarding to his mother's apartment there, and he buys a one-way ticket to Tokyo.
That's when the story started to get interesting. I just loved reading about Japan, it's my biggest dream to travel there. Everything about Tokyo is so different from here - the people are different, the language, the fashion, the manners, the mentality. It was so SO interesting and exciting to read about Danny's trips in Tokyo and about the people he met.

Danny meets Kana, a Japanese girl that I just loved from the beginning. She was all happy and optimistic, always looking at the bright side of things. Without really meaning to, she helped Danny get out of his depression and misery and become happy all over again. Kana did only what she wanted and wasn't the typical traditional Japanese girl. She was always considered to be a freak in the society but she didn't let it affect her. The opposite, she had dreams to explore the whole world and to succeed in life her own way. I just adored her and she was a great addition to the book.

The distance from his home, together with Kana's support, really changed Danny and I started to like him and to understand him much better and really care about his feelings. And that's when he found out about a terrible secret that was hidden from him this past year, something so shocking and utterly stunning that I almost dropped my Kindle while reading it. I really didn't see that coming. And I almost cried... He's such a poor boy!!

All the characters in this book were very well built, deep and realistic. The all had a difficult past, like people in real life and they all had a strong personality. Danny's voice was very sincere and I could see how smart he was and how he understood everything around him so well. That was very unlike other male POVs I've read it the past and that was very refreshing.
Danny's ex-girlfriend, Holland (I loved her name) played a major part of the story and I really liked her too. At the beginning I couldn't understand her behavior, but as the book progressed and I read more about her past with Danny and about her secrets and personality I started to really like her. She was the perfect match for Danny.
Danny's mom appeared in the book only in Danny's memories and that was enough for me to like her too. She was a brave woman that was happy all the time, even when she was dying. She was a great mother and it was really heartbreaking to see what Danny has lost.

This book was a very emotional and deep read, but it ended in an optimistic way that left me with a big smile. I recommend it to anyone who wants to read a well-written, moving story with great characters and a beautiful setting.

Summary (I saw people doing it on other blogs and I liked the idea):

  • A beautiful setting - most of it is set in Japan.
  • Great development of the main character
  • Interesting and smart male voice
  • Deep, well-built supporting characters.
  • Optimistic ending.

  • The main character was annoying in the beginning.
  • It was a bit hard to get into the book


We eat in silence for a minute, then Holland breaks it. “So you’re
going to Tokyo?”
“Your mom told you?” “Yes.” “Did your mom send you to get info out of me or
something?” “No. She mentioned it, and now I’m mentioning it.
Why? Is there info to get? Are you going with a girl?” I scoff. “Yeah,
right. I was supposed to go with some- one, but it didn’t work out,” I
say, my eyes locked on her
the whole time. “Well, I wanted to go, okay?” “So did I,” I say, so
low it’s a whisper. But she hears me,
and she inches her hand across the counter, just a little bit closer,
and that hand, I want to grab it and hold on.
“Me too,” she says, barely there, barely painting the space between us
with all that has been broken.
I glance at our hands, so close all it would take is one of us giving an inch.
“I bought my ticket an hour ago.”
“When do you leave?”
 “A couple days from now. I found a good deal.” She nods a few times,
taps her fingers. I can feel the
warmth from her hands. “Cool,” she says, and we stay like that. One
stretch is all it would take to be back, so I wait. Wait for her to
tell me she’ll miss me, to ask me to stay, to put her hands on my face
and press her lips against mine and kiss me like it’s the thing that’s
been killing her not to do for all these months. That it’s not cool
for me to go. That if I go, she’ll be the one who’s sad.
But she doesn’t. We just finish our food, and she washes the plates,
and the other ones that were in the sink too, and she tosses out the
cartons from Captain Wong’s and bags up the garbage, and she’s like a
nurse. She’s here as a nurse. To take care of me. To make sure I eat
enough food and clean the house and take my vitamins.
I watch her take my vitals and check my temperature and adjust the
tubes, and when she suggests we watch a movie, here on the couch, I
just nod because my heart isn’t beating fast enough anymore, blood
isn’t pumping smoothly enough anymore for me to find the will to say
no like I did last night. Evidently I can buy tickets to fly out of
the coun-
try, no problem, but I can’t even tell Holland to stop being so near
to me all the time but not near enough.
Because she is supposed to want to go to Tokyo with me now. She is
supposed to invite herself, to ask me in that sweet and sexy, that
bold and confident voice, to say that I should take her along, that we
promised we’d go together, that we even talked about it last summer.
As if I needed reminding. As if I were the one who’d forgotten.
Instead she turns on the TV and finds a film where the hero survives a
bridge being blown up. We stay like that through fire and bombs,
through fists and blows, through a knife fight in an alley, a foot
away from each other, not touching, not moving, not talking, not
curled up together, just staring mutely at the screen.
But faking it becomes too much for me, so when the hero clutches the
crumbling concrete from the bridge, scram- bling for purchase, I stand
up and leave the living room, mumbling, “Be right back.”
I walk to the bathroom at the end of the hall. I shut the door. I head
straight for the window. I slide it open and pop out the screen. I
stand on the toilet seat, then climb the rest of the way out of the
window and hop into my front yard. I close the window, and I walk and
I walk and I walk.
When I return an hour later, my greatest hope is she’ll be gone. My
most fervent wish is that I will have made my great escape from her,
from her hold on me. But instead I
find her sound asleep on my couch, Sandy Koufax tucked tightly into a
ball at Holland’s bare feet.
I kneel down on the tiles where the book she was read- ing has slipped
out of her tired hands. It’s a paperback, The Big Sleep. I run a thumb
across the cover, wondering when Holland developed a penchant for
Raymond Chandler. There was a time when she would have told me her
favorite parts. When she would have tried to tell me the ending
because she just loved it so much, she had to share, and I’d have held
up a hand and told her to stop. Laughing all the time. Then I’d have
read it too, and we’d have walked on the beach and talked about the
best parts. We’d have done that tonight with the movie too. Imitated
the actors’ inflections at their most over-the-top moments, then
marveled at the blown-up buildings.
I shut the book we’re not sharing. The ending we’re not talking about.
I place it on the coffee table and walk upstairs, because if I stay
near her, I will wake her up, rus- tle a shoulder, and ask her. Ask
her why she left. Ask her why she’s here. Ask her what changed for
When I get into my bed, I am keenly aware of her in my house, as if
the rising and falling of her breathing, the flut- tering of her
sleeping eyelids, can somehow be seen and heard from a floor above. I
imagine her waking up, walking up the stairs, heading down the hall,
standing in my door- way, a sliver of moonlight through the window
sketching her in the dark. I would speak first, telling her the
truth—that I’m still totally in love with her. That nothing has
changed for me when it comes to her.
Everything else is so muted, so fuzzy, so frayed around the edges.
This—how I feel for Holland—is the only thing in my life that has
remained the same. Everyone I have loved is gone. Except her. Holland
is the before and the after, and the way I feel for her is both lethal
and beautiful. It is like breathing, like a heartbeat.
She would say the same words back to me, that she feels the same. Then
she would say my name, like she’s been searching for something, like
she’s found the thing she’s been looking for.
Come find me, come find me, come find me.
