13521399

Title: Confessions of A Murder Suspect (Confessions #1)
Author: James Patterson, Maxine Paetro
Published: September 10th 2013 by Little, Brown and Company
Type: Murder Mystery, Thriller, Science Fiction
Paperback, 400 pages

add-to-goodreads-button3Summery: On the night Malcolm and Maud Angel are murdered, their daughter Tandy knows just three things: 1) She was one of the last people to see her parents alive. 2) The suspect list only includes Tandy and her three siblings. 3) She can’t trust anyone–maybe not even herself.

As Tandy sets out to clear the family name, she begins to recall flashes of experiences long buried in her vulnerable psyche. These memories shed light on her family’s dark secrets, and digging deeper into her powerful parents’ affairs proves to be a disturbing and dangerous game. Who knows what any of the Angels are truly capable of?

I really enjoyed James Patterson books so far. I really his Fantasy and science fiction books. Lately i been wanting to open up more on mystery novels. I used to just stay away from it, cause i’m not much a fan of them. But i did want to read this one for sometime now. The book just stood out to me. I was a little suppressed how much i did end up enjoying the book.

Confessions of a murder suspect starts off right away with a bang. Tandy wake up to sirens and cops at her door she finds out her parents are dead. Tandy suspects her own angel family. Trusting her own family becomes harder and harder more the story goes. Tandy and her brothers get blamed for the killing of there parents. She tries to discover the real killer and along the way she discovers more secrets of the past then she bargain for. Tandy slowly learns that her parents might be the reason why her and her brothers are not normal.

The story hints to forgotten love, a love that was taken from her. Not only do Tandy have to find the killer she also gets flashes of the past that she has forgotten and you are thrown into that mystery along with Tandy. I liked how the character talks to the reader along with the book. you know she is talking to you when she says “friend”. it was a nice touch. You got to really know the character, and you could somewhat relate to her. She has always been somewhat emotionless but you see how much she really does care and how it wasn’t her fault she didn’t have emotions.

The story is packed with Twist & Turns. The suspense will seriously have you biting you nails. The ending wasn’t what i predicted, it will shock you and start questioning “When?, what?, why?” the ending throws you into more mystery’s you wont find out until you read the next book.

Overall Loved the plot, the characters, the writing, everything. I highly recommend this book to all the mystery craving fans out in the world. After reading this book i just feel like i really should start reading more mystery’s, that not all will disappoint me. Can’t wait to read the next book.

YA Book Review: Schools Out-Forever By James Patterson

3924062

 

Title: School’s out-Forever ( Maximum Ride #2 )
Author: James Patterson
Published: April 2007 by Warner Vision
Type: Science Fiction, Adventure
Source: Bookmooch
Paperback

add-to-goodreads-button3Summery:The heart-stopping quest of six winged kids–led by fourteen-year-old Max–to find their parents and investigate the mind-blowing mystery of their ultimate destiny continues when they’re taken under the wing of an FBI agent and attempt, for the first time, to live “normal” lives. But going to school and making friends doesn’t stop them from being relentlessly hunted by sinister spies, who lead Max to face her most frightening match yet: a new and better version of herself.

rbI really love Maximum Ride. Yes i was late on the action but i am here and i will not leave. After discovering James Patterson i have read a couple of other James Patterson books and i plan on reading more soon, but Maximum Ride has to my FAVORITE of his books.

The Books starts with max and her Flock: Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel.  They fly of to D.C to look for there parents. They are consent in trouble from the Erasers. Max Has no easy life being on the run always trying to save her Flock and having a Mysterious voice in her head that tells her what to do. It’s not easy for max and saving the world problem also does not help.

Max is very funny and sassy. I always look forward to reading her funny comebacks. She just has this really cool personalty. She is blind to what love is and it was funny when Max has to discover love and trying to act normal for only a little while. You know her and Fang has this connection if you read the first book you know what i’m talking about. You get a glimpse of it again in this book but Max really doesn’t understand much about love. She is fourteen and always has to worry about her Flock and pretty much her family.

The humor in this book between Max and Iggy and the awesome Gazzy is amazing. I laughed a lot reading this book. But there is a lot of moments specially with Iggy that will make you just cry inside and out, this might count as a spoiler please forgive me if it does. It’s just it was freaking sad! There is other heart breaking moments that had me pulling out my hair.

Yes it has it’s cool adventures and more awesome moments but i was a little disappointing in the fact that the book just seemed a little rushed on the important scenes and long on the not as important scenes. I also really wanted more Max and Fang. But i still highly enjoyed the book and loved it. I just want to keep going on and on about the book but then we will be here all day. Overall i recommend it!

Have you read Maximum ride yet?

I really enjoyed Maximum Ride by James Patterson. I wanted to take a chance on Witch and Wizard to see if i would like other James Patterson books…and i am happy to say i do. The book was full of all the things i like, action with a touch of adventure and the supernatural. Win, win!

the story is pretty much about the lives of brother and sister. you watch them struggle threw the new order and escape to save there parents and there death sentience. They are the ones who will save the people from The One Who is the ONE! Whit and Whisty have to free from there jail cell. They discover they are a witch and wizard, and The One who is The One wants them dead. They are stuck by other kids who have disobeyed the New Order. The book is set in the 21st century but with a twist, Stepping back to the time of Burning Witches in the Salem period.

The beginning of the book starts off crazy where you don’t really know what’s going on. After you read more you start to connect the pieces together. It has it’s funny moments, like Whisty, She is a very sassy girl. There is some sad parts, but i can’t say any of it made me feel sad to the point of tears…it was pretty much those sad parts where you just frown and keep reading.

Overall: I loved the book The connection of a brother and sister is the most powerful. it was nice to read about two siblings protecting each other and have such a strong connection. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

My Review: My first ever James Patterson read, Yup you heard me right. I never read Any of his books, Not that i didn’t want to, just never got around to it. My Mother was the one who wanted me to read this series and she is the one who bought it for me. I have seen this book around a lot and now there is a huge fan base for this series.

The book starts off with Max Escaping the place she calls the “School” were there is people who where experimenting on her and others. Max has wings like an angel and so does others she escaped with. They have been hiding from these people ever since, until one day the youngest name angel is taking by erasers who are like human wolfs, back to the “School” so Max, Fang and Nudge go and save her.

You don’t just read in Max PoV, you also read in Angel, Iggy and Nudge and even Gazzy. There isn’t any romance in this book and if there is, it’s not in the first book. It’s just mostly about max and others trying to find answers and saving the world kinda thing. What i don’t get is why it took me soo long to read this series, i really really liked the book. I got pretty zoned into this book and was p all night until 5 am trying to finish it. Max and the others are always on the run from the erasers. It has a lot of adventures in it.

I have to say this has been my favorite read of the month. It was soo good i want to give it a thousands stars. I have to get my hands on this whole series soon.

The Story is intense, it’s just one huge crazy ride after the next. There is never a dull moment. Judging from my copy, the cover is okay-ish not really a fan of it, but without the cover sleeve it’s awesome with the bad ass Maximum Ride symbol.

If you haven’t read this series yet READ it. It will shock you and leave you speechless. The endding is mind blowing. I wish the book didn’t end cause i wanted to just read it forever and ever. I have so much unanswered questions. You will like the Twist and turns of the book and the Fantasy with all kinds of crazy things. Dig in.

Now i am gonna go hide a rock with my copy until i can read the next book. Highly recommend, it’s a must read, so read it Book worms.
