add-to-goodreads-button3Summery: It’s a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

A timeless love story, THESE BROKEN STARS sets into motion a sweeping science fiction series of companion novels. The Starbound Trilogy: Three worlds. Three love stories. One enemy.

When the book first started i did feel a tide annoyed with it starting with this whole love in fist-sight. But the book doesn’t take long to take a whole different route. The story becomes more then that and you get thrown into a book of survival and heartbreak.

Tarver falls for a girl named Lilac, not know who she really was. Lilac Turns down Tarver even know she liked him because of her Father. Scared of what he would do to him. Of Course Tarver finds out Who Lilac is and to him he fault Stupid to ever look at Lilac. The story takes a huge twist after that somehow the ship they where on gets destroyed. Lilac and Tarver escape on a Pod and land on a Mysterious planet. They both struggle with survival and finding help while also having to deal with mysterious whispers.

There is some little action but not really the story is mostly about survival mixed with alienated “creatures”. You watch Tarver and Lilac grow close but also struggle with dealing with each other. The story has it’s moments that make you laugh but can make you cry soon after. It can take a serious intense Twist. Which happens a lot in this book. You never know what is gonna happen. it really didn’t take me long to get hooked to every word. But the story is still a Science Fiction love story but the authors did such a great job at portraying it.

I also love how the story is a way a Flash back in the beginning of each chapter you get like Bits of interrogation with Tarver telling what happened on the planet. I thought it made the story really interesting a whole it flowed with the story and it short helped with following along with the story.

I really love Lilac and Tarver’s characters. They both had such different life’s and personality’s but they clicked. Lilac is more smarter and Tarver is more of the fighter. without them both i don;t think any of them would have survived on thee own. The more you got close to the end of the story the more the tears the come along. it was so freaking sad and bittersweet and just pure awesome an a way and if you read the book you know what i mean.

I know the book was gonna be good but i was really shocked on how good it was, it really suppressed me. The story was so unique and different. it didn’t take me long to finish this story. In a funny way tho just in the beginning the book did somehow remind me of Titanic…..Step for “Jack” Doesn’t die and only two people live…..oh and the ship doesn’t hit a iceberg. But the similarity’s to it was totally there.

Overall: I really did love the overall story. DO NOT stop reading at the beginning but it gets wayyyyy better then that. I cried, I laughed and shed more tears reading this book. I went crazy on how the book ended and i can’t wait to read the next book in this series…i will be sitting here waiting for the day it comes out. The book was pretty amazing and different and very enjoyable. I recommend it. If you have not yet bought it, do me a favor and got on Amazon or a local book store and buy this book. It is worth the read.

*I won this Hardback copy from The Midnight Garden and Disney-Hyperion in a contest. My Review is all my honest opinion and noting else. Winning the book no way changes my opinion.

Book Review: Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon

Title: Doon (Doon #1)
Author: Carey Corp, Lorie Langdon
Published:  August 20th 2013 by Zondervan
Type: Fantasy, Romance
Source: Book Sneeze for Review
Hardcover

add-to-goodreads-button3Summery: Veronica doesn’t think she’s going crazy. But why can’t anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes? When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months.

But the Scottish countryside holds other plans.

Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna’s great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation. Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica’s daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they’ve longed for…or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.

DOON is loosely based on the premise of the musical Brigadoon, with permission from the ALan Jay Lerner Estate and the Frederick Loewe Foundation. Follow the journey at http://www.DoonSeries.com

The story is about Veronica and Mackenna. Two best friends with different life’s. Veronica takes a trip with Kenna to Scotland to Visit her dead Aunts house. Veronica starts to see a boy in a kilt ( which let me add Guys in kilts are hot. ). Now this guy his some ghostly figure telling her to ” Come to him ” and she starts falling in love with this ghostly figure in a kilt that only seems to show up when she is distressed. To me that was a huge turn off in the book. I for one would be crept out by it. Like just nope. I will pass on that. In the beginning just seemed awkward to me.

Veronica Finds Kenna’s aunts Journal. That talks about a magical place called Dune. Veronica is is determined to get to Doon to be with her mysterious Kilt boy. Yeah i am so over the “love-in-first-sight” mumble jumble. But besides all that junk the story wasn’t bad at all. To be honest i like the little bit we got from Kenna. All she ever wanted was be famous actress on the stage and who usually is all for the Fantasy love story’s is more worry the whole ghostly love interest and the world of Doon. To me she just felt realistic…Well as realistic as you are gonna get when it comes to fantasy books.

Now i don’t hate Veronica just the love mess. She lives with her drunk mother and her step father who is a jerk. Her life is pretty complicated compare to Kenna’s life. She on the hand was supposed to be the more realistic and logical character but you don’t see that in this book. Her and Jamie become less annoying when you start reading more and the story does get a lot deeper. The story is a Romance book but is moe then that. You do get a really good story hidden behind it and the story actually become pretty fun read.

I did love Veronica and Kenna’s Friendship. They reminded me of sisters. The book is a great example of what true friend is. With their friend ship and all the jumble and the over all plot of the story is amazing. The story can get pretty intense but still be funny. You have a great fantasy story of a witch trying to destroy the Kingdom and Veronica and Kenna fight to save the kingdom along the way.

There is a lot more to the story then i have mention but no one likes spoilers so just go out a read it for yourself.

Did i love the story? Not as much as i wanted to but i did like it and very much enjoyed it not counting the flaws. There is a really good story hidden that really amazed me.

Do i recommend it? Sure i know many people who will love the book more then i did. The book is really easy to follow along with and has great characters to fall i love with.

Book Review: Descendant by Lesley Livingston

17332590

Title: Descendant ( Starling #2 )
Author:  Lesley Livingston
Published:  August 27th 2013 by HarperTeen
Type: Fantasy
Hardcover

add-to-goodreads-button3Summery: The last thing Mason Starling remembers is the train crossing a bridge. An explosion . . . a blinding light . . . then darkness. Now she is alone, stranded in Asgard—the realm of Norse legend—and the only way for her to get home is to find the Spear of Odin, a powerful relic left behind by vanished gods.

The Fennrys Wolf knows all about Asgard. He was once trapped there. And he’ll do whatever it takes to find the girl who’s stolen his heart and bring her back—even if it means a treacherous descent into the Underworld. But time is running out, and Fenn knows something Mason doesn’t: If she takes up the Spear, she’ll set in motion a terrible prophecy. And she won’t just return to her world . . . she’ll destroy it.

In this pulse-pounding sequel to Starling, Lesley Livingston delivers another electrifying blend of nonstop action and undeniable romance that will leave readers breathless.

I don’t know about you but i can’t get enough of Lesley intake of Norse Mythology. I have become obsess here lately and i like to think it’s because of Lesley. There is so much in it and it’s awesome. In the first book you didn’t really get to know much, you didn’t get into that worlds of Norse Gods and worlds. until this book and it makes the story just get better and better each chapter. Like i said i am obsess.

This book starts off right where the last one left off on. Mason is trapped in the underworld with no memory of what really happened and she is not really sure where she is at. While Fenn is still in the mortal world. Fenn and his friends come together to get Mason out of the underworld before she touches the spear and destroy the world.

The story has so much suspense and packed with adventures. Many Plot Twists, like you think you know what gonna happen and then NOPE. You get glimpses of Norse gods. Lesley intake on there worlds was just amazing, i loved the details she put into it. I have grown to love Finn’s character more then the first ( loved him also in Starling ). His character just grows more, he struggles with his past but him wanting to whats right becomes so much more powerful. You get to see that in this book. I honestly Loved his chapters more while reading Descendant then Mason. Not that i don’t like her i do and a lot, But Fenn is just so sassy and funny. There would be a serious scene and he just makes it funny in a way.

Fenn and Mason is for sure Ship worthy. They are cute together and the whole time i am just like ” SAY YOU LOVE HER< SAY IT!!!! ” threw most of the book. Now the book is more then a romance story of the two. You get to see all these other characters story and get to grow so attached to each ones story, and the overall plot to the story is just omg. I can’t think of any other way to do it. It’s perfect and just that right touch of tears. The ending to the book was sad but sweet and i was just in complate tears over it.

Overall: I love the mystery of the story and the characters in the book. I loved Lesley point of view of Norse Mythology. Her story made reading it really fun and interesting and of course sad.  I loved everything in the book. Absolute flawless in my eyes. I totally recommend this series. If you haven’t read it…then well do me a favor and do so. Totally worth it.

Book Review: Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken

Title: Never Fade ( The Darkest Minds #2 )
Author:  Alexandra Bracken
Published:  October 15th 2013 by Disney-Hyperion
Type: Dystopian, Science Fiction, Paranormal
Hardcover

add-to-goodreads-button3Summery: Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby “Leader”, but she knows what she really is: a monster.

When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children’s League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America’s children—and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts—has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future—and who now wouldn’t recognize her.

As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam—and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart—she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?

rb

Ever since i read The Darkest Minds i have been obsess! I been wanting to read Never Fade for while now, but just never got around to it. But i FINALLY bought the bought and read the same day. If you have read The Darkest Minds then you know how crazy the ending was, freaking HUGE plot twist. That ending made me complate insane for days of rocking back and forth in tears. Well Never Fade continues a little after the wild ending. Ruby is part of the Children’s League now and the first chapter was already packed with suspense.

If you haven’t read the Darkest minds then you really should go out and buy both the first and second book because BOTH are really good. The Author makes you just fall in love with the characters and gets you so attached like they are real. Like the character could be like evil like crazy i still loved that character.

I honestly felt like Never Fade was better. Ruby’s character has gown so much since the first book and to me she is a Bad Ass in The Darkest minds we watch her be this quiet girl who couldn’t control her powers and had a hard time opening up to people. In Never Fade she she has more control of hers powers and isn’t afraid anymore. She will do anything to protect the people she cares about.

Threw most of the book i was a total hot mess, like the book would go straight to my feels and all could do was asdfghjk! the book has a lot of raw emotion, specially with characters in the book. you got to fall in love with a new character named Jude and sorta of became like a little brother too ruby.

I don’t want to got into to much details but Liam in this book and with ruby will bring you too tears and take the life out of you.  and i have a serious soft spot for Connor. Yes he is supposed to be like this huge villain but my gosh he makes evil look good. Some villain are just awesome, okay? The way the book ends was kinda bitter sweet, yeah it was super sad but what ruby did was pretty bad ass and the last line in the book was just freaking awesome.

Overall the book had everything i could ask for and more. It is a pager tuner full of suspense and action that will have anyone going crazy for more. Ruby is on my top 10 list of favorite kick ass chicks in books hands down. Readers will not be disappointed in never fade.

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a walled-in city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten.

(warning this review may or may not count as a spoiler)

Put Vampires in a Dystopian world and add the amazing Author Julie Kagawa and you my fine readers have a awesome recipe for an epic story. I have been a huge fan of Julie for a little while now. I first fell in love with her with The Iron Fey series. That series is just really amazing. Julie takes a whole different turn in the Immortal Rules series. Those books are completely different but amazing in there own right. I just love to be able to step in another world of Julie Kagawa. The funny thing is that i didn’t even mean to by The Immortal Rules, it was a oopsie buy that i don’t even remember. I been wanting to read this book for a while now but never got around to it, so i like to think of it as fate.

I really loved the whole concept of the story, of a Dystopian world run by vampires. I love Dystopians and vampires and to have them combined is a instant win in my book. If you read The Iron Fey series, it was more of a light story of love. But The Immortal Rules was so much more then that. The Book just has this dark feel to it. Allison’s lives in slums of a walled up vampire city with the unregisterers, worrying about food and vampires. Things to a dark turn for Allison and she turns in to the one thing she hated the most..a Vampire. She has to survive outside of the walls with the Rapids, nasty monsters that prey flash.  Years ago a virus swept the world and killed most the humans and turning vampires into rapids.

Allison’s comes across a group and helps them to this place called Eden. Allison’s has to learn to blend in. The story if full of adventure, and shocking twist and turns. You will shed a tear or thousands when reading the book. It is a love story in a dark world. The story is intense, that will have you griping the pages. I feel like everyone will love Allison’s kick ass personally.

I am happy to say i was not disappointed! The series was a hell of a ride but an awesome one. The book ends with a cliff hanger! Can’t wait to seek my teeth in the 2nd book. Julie Kagawa knows what the readers want and she knows how to deliver it. I happy i get to step in another world of Julie Kagawa and can’t wait to step in more awesome story’s by this awesome human. I 100% recommend this book if you haven’t already read it.

YA Book Review: Schools Out-Forever By James Patterson

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?

Hardback, 350 pages

add-to-goodreads-button3

Summery:Regret was for people with nothing to defend, people who had no water. Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most importantly, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty, or doesn’t leave at all.Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. Having a life means dedicating it to survival, and the constant work of gathering wood and water. Having a pond requires the fortitude to protect it, something Mother taught her well during their quiet hours on the rooftop, rifles in hand.But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers. The mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won’t stop until they get it….
With evocative, spare language and incredible drama, danger, and romance, debut author Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl’s journey in a barren world not so different than our own.

rb

I read about this book a while back and when i read about the back, it just seemed like my type of book. I am a huge fan of Dystopian books and i have said this probably like a billion of times.  Lynn and her mother fight everyday with survival. Lynn has every known: Shoot, Kill, protect the pond. She grew up cold. shooting at ever came in her path. Water is running out and there pond is there life. Lynn and her mother as always lived at the same house. Lynn’s mother dies and and she has to take over everything. The only men who lives near that Lynn and her mother hasn’t killed, starts to help Lynn to survival. Lynn learns that there is still humanity to the world and watch grow a heart. she learns to start caring for others when a group of three need there help.

The story is sad and depressing but it had it’s sweet moments when you get to see Lynn start to care and open up. It was full of suspense and heart breaking moments that did have me close to tears. The book did get a little slow at times but then it would hurry and pick back up. if you’re looking for a dystopian adventure this book is not it. It’s mostly about survival. Lynn is pretty much in the same place threw out the whole book. I did love Lynn’s bad ass attitude she had. Like if things got crazy i would want her backing me up.

A little warning the ending SUCKED. i was really disappointed in the ending but i get what the author was doing and i totally get it but it made me so mad i wanted to throw the book out the window mad. Like who writes a ending like that? come on now! how freaking rude. This is just a minor spoiler..a lot of people die. sorry but there is a lot of death and it’s gonna make you cry.

Overall i liked the story a lot. The writing was easy to follow along with and i love the cover. if it wasn’t for the ending and it getting a little slow at times  i would of give it a five star rating but i couldn’t fully love this book as much i wanted to.

But Tessa’s just been found . . . dead.Wick has the right computer-hacking skills for the job, but little interest in this perverse game of hide-and-seek.

Daughter of a felon. Loner hacker girl. Wick has a bad attitude and sarcasm to spare.But she’s going to find this killer no matter what.Because it just got personal.

rb

This is my first real murder mystery book. I’m not really much of a fan of Murder Mystery’s, i think it because that’s all you see on TV now days. So i was a little iffy about reading Find Me. What caught my Attention to the story was the Plot. I liked how she is a hacker. I am happy to say that i liked the book more then i thought i would.

It starts off with Suspense right away. Wick and her little sister live with Foster parents because her dad is on the run for being a dead beat drug dealer of a dad and her mother commits suicide. Late at night a cop name Carson starts to creep around the house. Wick finds a package at the door of a diary of a girl named Tessa with a sick-it note saying “find me”.  I loved the Twist and turns the book took. The Ending is a HUGE Twist. I had to shut the book to scream OMG about a 100x.

The Book was super easy to follow along with and easy to understand. I liked how it wasn’t too complex. I read the book in one setting. Very Fast read and it is a some what short book. What i didn’t like was the cussing it was just too much of it. I cuss all the time, don;t get me wrong but it was all the time in the book and i just could stand it.

But besides the could i loved the book and the story and i do recommend the book to anyone who loves murder mystery’s. I am happy this was my first murder mystery. I do plan on reading more book based on Murders and more book of Romily Bernard’s!

YA Book Review: The Ask and The Answer

Title: The Ask and The Answer (Chaos Walking #2)
Author: Patrick Ness
Published: August 10th 2010 by Candlewick Press
Type: Dystopia, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Paperback, 519 pages 

add-to-goodreads-button3Summery: Part two of the literary sci-fi thriller follows a boy and a girl who are caught in a warring town where thoughts can be heard — and secrets are never safe.

Reaching the end of their flight in THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO, Todd and Viola did not find healing and hope in Haven. They found instead their worst enemy, Mayor Prentiss, waiting to welcome them to New Prentisstown. There they are forced into separate lives: Todd to prison, and Viola to a house of healing where her wounds are treated. Soon Viola is swept into the ruthless activities of the Answer, while Todd faces impossible choices when forced to join the mayor’s oppressive new regime. In alternating narratives the two struggle to reconcile their own dubious actions with their deepest beliefs. Torn by confusion and compromise, suspicion and betrayal, can their trust in each other possibly survive?

rb

I fell in love with the first book The Knife of Never Letting Go in the series. Patrick Ness really knows how to get me hooked. When reading the book you kinda struggle with who to trust and what’s right from wrong. You watch Todd go threw so much struggle to try and protect Viola. in  the beginning of the book there is this quote by Friedrich Nietzsche.

“Battle not with monsters

lest you become a monster

and if you gaze into Abyss

the Abyss gazes in you”

The quote was so spot on with this series and what Todd has to go threw. I had this quote stuck in my mind while i was reading it. From that quote and when the story’s starts it seriously brought tears in my eyes. I just wanted to hug poor Todd so much it hurt. 

Todd and Viola’s Relationship is so heartbreaking and freaking sad. Todd cares so much for Viola that he would do any thing for her and struggles to keep her safe. The Thing poor Todd has to go threw this book was just sad. Like i couldn’t be able to do what he has to-do. Todd is in Love with Viola and doesn’t even freaking realize it and it seriously drives me freaking crazy. I need to know if they eventually Kiss and confess there love if they don’t in the next book then i will throw it out the window, i swear i will.

The book was full of suspense and intense nail gripping moments. I am pretty sure i almost had a few heart attacks wile reading this one. My feelings were crushed a few times. I just love the way Patrick wrote the book. He really truly knows how to write a freaking awesome book.

What was really cool about this book in the series is the fact it’s in Todd’s and Viola’s point of view. You to read what both of them were going threw and see there struggles. The ending was so freaking crazy. it ends with this huge cliff hangar that made me want to scream so i will  be getting my hands on Monsters of men like asap. 

Overall i would’ve liked more Todd and Viola moments but i still loved the whole story and the concept of it. There is a lot of action and suspense. It was a crazy amazing roller coaster ride. I recommend this book series every day of my life.

*Note: I haven’t been able to finish this on the time i wanted too. I have been pretty busy this week.

My Thoughts: Now if you have know me for a while, you know i have been a HUGE Divergent fan. It is my all time top favorite book. I always like it, cause well i learn things from it. Divergent isn’t just about some teen romance, no no no it is soooo much more then that. When you think about Divergent you think about life chooses and learning to just be you that no one can control you and etc. Now i’m not here to talk about why i love Divergent, we are because of  THE TRANSFER!! asdfghjkl! I freaking love me some Four and to have more four since “free Four” is awesome. When i found out Veronica Roth was gonna do more Four i freaked out just like every other Divergent fan out there. To get to be inside Tobias head is just aghh, i have been dreaming for this moment.

The book starts off with Tobias doing the simulation test to find out what faction he belongs to, and like all divergent fans knows it’s Abnegation. not long after he chooses to be in dauntless cause he wants to be free from his Father ( Which by the way i HATE ). You get to see the life of Tobias Eaton and his Struggle with his Father before he chooses Dauntless. Once he get’s to Dauntless you see him go threw his Fear Landscape. Learning his nickname “Four”. Now if you haven’t read Divergent DON’T read this, But if you have read the series and didn’t know about this, THEN READ IT!

I had a Fan girl Moment when Tobias was talking about the Prior Family, I went ”  Tris is gonna be your future LOVER”

After finishing the ebook i went in a fangirl normal of depressed state, wishing to have more asap. If Veronica Roth ever did write a WHOLE book of just Tobias Eaton, my life would be complete. I can’t wait for the other short storys of Tobias to come out! it just needs to hurry up already. Another great read by Veronica Roth, she is truly amazing.

Overall I love me some Transfer it is amazing, and sooo worth the read. i want to re-read a thousands of times. Can’t wait for THE MOVIE!
