Take A Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg Review


Last year, I read one of Elizabeth Eulberg’s books, Prom And Prejudice. I thought it was really cute, so when I saw Take A Bow at my library, I got it right away. I ended up starting it that Sunday night, and I told myself I’d just read one chapter (since the next day was school for me). Yeah....that didn’t happen. I ended up staying up until 1:00 a.m reading the whole book . I’m ordering my own copy to re-read soon :) 
The book is told in four different alternating points of view and it was so well written and intense. The four main characters it follows are Emme, Sophie, Carter, and Ethan. Emme is the sweetest person ever, who is pretty shy, though. She and Ethan are part of a band (The Teenage Kicks) and she refuses to believe that her best friend Sophie constantly uses her. Sophie is a shallow, self-absorbed person who will push everyone out of the way to get fame no matter what the cost. Ethan is secretly in love with Emme, and has been for many years, but he’s a total player. Both Emme and Ethan are totally amazing characters that you can’t help but root for. With Sophie, she is so self-concerned and shallow, that I kind of felt bad for her, that she didn’t realize all the amazing people she had all around her. It did drive me crazy, though, how she constantly worked to try to bring Emme down since she was “the more talented one”.The last character, Carter, I feel was the least important to the book. He was  a child star and is the boyfriend to Sophie. He starts to realize over time (with the help of Emme) his changing feelings towards certain parts of his life and how he has to move on form them. 
All the characters came across as so real. The tensions were so high, and reading this, I felt like I was watching a TV show, with all the different twists and turns, along the way. This book was amazing all around! (I would definitely buy this- like now!) The only negative that I felt about this book is that I always feel like Elizabeth Eulberg’s endings to her books are always kind of rushed. This book did have a sort-of epilogue that summed things up pretty good, though. Besides that, this book was incredible.  I’d give it 5 out of 5 stars. I can’t wait for her next book to come out! Thanks for reading and don’t forget to enter the mini prize pack giveaway (there are only two days left)





From the fantastic author of The Lonely Hearts Club and Prom & Prejudice comes a story of all the drama and comedy of four friends who grow into themselves at a performing arts high school.
Emme, Sophie, Ethan, and Carter are seniors at a performing arts school, getting ready for their Senior Showcase recital, where the pressure is on to appeal to colleges, dance academies, and professionals in show business. For Sophie, a singer, it's been great to be friends with Emme, who composes songs for her, and to date Carter, soap opera heartthrob who gets plenty of press coverage. Emme and Ethan have been in a band together through all four years of school, but wonder if they could be more than just friends and bandmates. Carter has been acting since he was a baby, and isn't sure how to admit that he'd rather paint than perform. The Senior Showcase is going to make or break each of the four, in a funny, touching, spectacular finale that only Elizabeth Eulberg could perform.

ARC Review: The Girl in The Clockwork Collar

*May Contain Spoilers if you have not read The Girl In The Steel Corset


Hi! I just got the chance to read the sequel to The Girl in the Steel Corset, The Girl in the Clockwork Caller. I was so excited to read this one and jumped right into it. The sequel did not disappoint.


The book jumps in where things left off in England, with everybody preparing to go to the U.S rescue Jasper. At the beginning of the book, there is a lot of secrecy surrounding Jasper's past and what has been going on with him. Finley is still as strong and independent as ever and Griffin starts doubting if she is ever going to stick around for long. The characters start out being pretty much the same; but over the course of the book, all the characters grow a lot stronger and mature.


For the not so great, I thought the book was kind long for all the content it contained in it. I found myself getting bored with how drawn out certain things were. Also, the romance was extremely minimal and was not as good as it could have been.

The Girl in The Clockwork Caller was entertaining and there was also a pretty major twist in the end that made a huge difference in how the story played out. Also, I found myself being able to emphasize more with Finley and Griffin. I definitely liked Finley a lot more. Overall, this book was a pretty good read, so that I would give 3 out of 5 stars. 


In New York City, 1897, life has never been more thrilling - or dangerous.

Sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne and her "straynge band of mysfits" have journeyed from London to America to rescue their friend Jasper, hauled off by bounty hunters. But Jasper is in the clutches of a devious former friend demanding a trade-the dangerous device Jasper stole from him...for the life of the girl Jasper loves.

One false move from Jasper and the strange clockwork collar around Mei's neck tightens. And tightens.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins Book Review


Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home. As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?

Delirium Book Review

Hi! I finally decided to pick it Delirium only a few days ago because, although I really liked Before I Fall, the ending of it was so sad for me. I wasn’t sure if Delirium would be like that, too. However, after reading it, all I can think about now is reading Pandemonium :D


Delirium is about a society that is taught that love causes all the problems in the world and it is considered a disease. At eighteen, everyone gets a surgery that removes their ability to be able to love. Then, they are chosen a perfect match who they end up marrying. Right before Lena (the main character) is about to get her surgery, she ends up falling in love. Uh oh.


The main character, Lena, ended up really growing through the book; and she had realistic elements to her (being scared and insecure at some times, not always the perfect heroine.) I like books where the heroine is shown to have faults, and is not always prepared for every single thing that is thrown her way. Throughout the book, Lena developed into such a brave, strong heroine.


Lena's best friend, Hana, was awesome too. She was the one who seemed to want to rebel against their pre-chosen society in the first place and definitely helped inspire a lot of Lena's choices. Another amazing character was the love interest, Alex. He was so sweet to Lena and put her before himself. Both Hana and Alex were great side characters.


The emotions of all the characters were so well-written and intense. I can’t help wondering how Lauren Oliver came up with such a unique idea- love being regarded as dangerous. The only thing about this book that I did not really like was the cliffhanger ending.  At least, Pandemonium is already out right now. (yay!!!!! :D) I’d give this book four out of five stars. It was a little slow at some points- but really well written if you like dysotopian.



Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.
But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

Taste Blog Tour





Taste Blog Tour
Hi everyone! I am super excited to be a stop on the blog tour for Taste by Kate Evangelista. You can see the official blurb, book trailer, cover, and an excerpt below. Also, I attached a link for another excerpt that's  you can check out(it's hidden in this post) . Enjoy reading! 




Taste Blurb:
At Barinkoff Academy, there's only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by a mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes, and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters.http://kateevangelistanovels.blogspot.com/p/lunar-heat.html Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans.

When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn’t realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.





Taste Excerpt
I mentally stomped on the intimidation their perfection brought into my mind and said, “Excuse me.”
The group froze, startled by my words. The girls had their brows raised and the boys stopped mid-speech, mouths agape. They stared at me with eyes the shade of onyx stones.
I smiled and gave them a little wave.
The boy a step ahead of the rest recovered first. His stunning features went from shocked surprise to intense interest. He reminded me of a hawk eyeing its prey. I gulped.
“A Day Student,” he said, his eyes insolent and excited.
Something about the way he said “Day Student” made my stomach flip. “Excuse me?”
They snickered. The boys looked at each other while the girls continued to stare, muffling their laughter by delicate hands. I seemed to be the butt of some joke.  
“You broke the rule.” The boy’s grin turned predatory.
The students formed a loose semi-circle in front of me. My gaze darted from face to face. Hunger filled their eyes. The image of lions about to chase down a gazelle came to mind. I mentally shook my head. I was in the mountains not the Serengeti for crying out loud. 
I took a small step back and cleared my throat. “Can any of you give me a ride back to the dorms?”
The boy wagged his forefinger like a metronome. “Ah, that’s unfortunate for you.” 
One of the girls pinched the bridge of her nose. “Eli, you can’t possibly—”
“It’s forbidden, Eli,” another boy interrupted, pronouncing the word “forbidden” like a curse. 
The nervous murmur at the pit of my stomach grew louder. Six against one. Not good odds. Instinct told me to cut my losses and run. Bad enough I faced expulsion, now it seemed like weird, beautiful people who’d suddenly appeared on campus wanted to beat me up. No, scratch that. Judging from the way they studied me, beating me up wouldn’t satisfy them. Something more primal prowled behind their looks. 
I definitely wasn’t going down without a fight. Years of self-defense and hand-to-hand combat classes had me prepared. While other children from rich and important families got bodyguards, I got defense training. But I think my father meant for my skills to go up against potential kidnappers, not against other students who may or may not be crazy. Oh God! Maybe I stepped into a parallel universe or something when I reentered Barinkoff. 
“None of the students are supposed to be on campus,” I said. Then, realizing my mistake, I added, “Okay, I know I’m not supposed to be here either. If one of you gives me a ride back to the dorms, I won’t say anything about all this. Let’s pretend this never happened. I didn’t see you, you didn’t see me.”
“We’re not ordinary students,” Eli answered. “We’re the Night Students.”
He’d said “Night Students” like the words were capitalized. I didn’t know Barinkoff held classes at night. What was going on here?
Eli smiled with just one side of his mouth and said to the group, “She’s right, no one will have to know. We’re the only ones here. And it’s been so long, don’t you agree?” 
The rest of them nodded reluctantly.
“What’s been so long?” I challenged. I fisted my hands, ready to put them up if any of them so much as twitched my way.
“Since the taste of real flesh passed through my lips,” Eli said. He came forward and took a whiff of me then laughed when I cringed.
“Flesh.” Yep, parallel universe. 
“Yes,” he said. “And yours smells so fresh.” 
Someone grabbed my shoulders from behind and yanked me back before I could wrap my mind around the meaning behind Eli’s words. In a blink, I found myself behind someone tall. Someone really tall. And quite broad. And very male. 
I realized he wore the same clothes Eli and the other boys did. Not good. He was one of them. Although… I cocked my head, raking my gaze over him. He seemed born to wear the uniform, like he was the pattern everyone else was cut from. My eyes wandered to long, layered, blue-black hair tied at the nape by a silk ribbon. Even in dim light, his hair possessed a sheen akin to mercury. 
I looked down. The boy’s long fingers were wrapped around my wrist like a cuff. His fevered touch felt hotter than human standards, hot enough to make me sweat like I was standing beside a radiator but not hot enough to burn. 
“I must be mistaken, Eli,” the boy who held my arm said in a monotone. “Correct me. Did I hear you say you wanted to taste the flesh of this girl?”
A hush descended on us. It had the hairs at the back of my neck rising. How was it possible for the atmosphere to switch from threatening to dangerous? Unable to help myself, I peeked around the new guy’s bulk. Eli and his friends bowed. They all had their right hands on their chests. 
“Demitri, I’m sure you misheard me,” Eli said. 
So the guy standing between me and the person who said he’d wanted to taste me was named Demitri. I like the sound of his name. Demitri. So strong, yet rolls off the tongue. Definite yum factor.
“So, you imply I made a mistake?” Demitri demanded.
“No!” Eli lifted his gaze. “I did no such thing. I simply wanted to show the girl the consequences of breaking curfew.”
“Hey!” I yelled. “Don’t talk about me like I’m not here!”
Demitri ignored my protest and continued to address Eli. “So, you threatened to taste her flesh.” His fingers tightened their grip around my wrist. “In the interest of investigating this matter further, I invoke the Silence.”
All six students gasped, passing surprised glances at one another.
Before I could ask about what was going on, Demitri yanked me down the hall toward the library. But why there? Oh, maybe we were getting my things. No, wait, he couldn’t have known about that. Everything was too confusing now.
Eli and the others didn’t try to stop us when we passed them. Demitri’s cold command must have carried power. Handsome and powerful, never a bad combination on a guy. 
We reached the heavy double doors in seconds. He jerked one open effortlessly. I’d needed all my strength just to squeeze through that same door earlier. To him, the thick wood might as well have been cardboard. I raised an eyebrow and mentally listed the benefits of going to gym class.
“Why are we here?” I asked after my curiosity overpowered my worry. I’d almost forgotten how frightened I’d been right before Demitri showed up. I wasn’t above accepting help from strangers. Especially from gorgeous dark-haired strangers with hot hands and wide shoulders. 
Demitri kept going, tugging me along, snaking his way deeper into the library. I had to take two steps for every stride his legs made. I tried to stay directly behind him, praying we didn’t slam into anything. 
He stopped suddenly and I collided with him. It felt like slamming into a wall. 
“Hey,” I said, momentarily stunned. “A little warning would be nice!”
He faced me, and I gasped. His eyes resembled a starless night, deep and endless. Their intensity drilled through me without pity, seeming to expose all my secrets. I felt naked and flustered beneath his gaze.
“You could have died back there,” he warned.
A lump of panic rebuilt itself in my throat.


That's all! My giveaway is also still going on two entries below, so if you want to, check it out!

Welcome Caller, This is Chloe

Hi! A book I recently was able to read , thanks to Netgalley and ABRAMS publishers,  is Welcome Caller, This is Chloe. I was really excited to read this story. This book is about a girl who has to become a member of her school’s little-known about radio station, to be able to pass her senior project requirement. There, she starts to find friends in the radio station’s dysfunctional little family. 


There really was not too much negative in this book.  I felt the book was a little drawn out though and it was not that hard to put down. Also, I think the relationships between the characters could have developed quicker. However, it was a cute, fun read. The main character, Chloe, was a refreshingly talkative, confident, caring girl with a love for vintage shoes. It’s especially hard to find such an outspoken heroine in books, now. I thought it was amazing how she dealt with everything sent her way: social isolation, her grandmother’s struggle with Parkinson’s Disease, argument in her family.


The author, Shelley Coriell, did a wonderful job on her debut novel; and you should definitely check out this book when it comes out. It shows great themes of friendship, romance, and overcoming problems sent your way. I’d give this book four out of five cookies, and recommend it to people looking for a cute read. Later this week, look for a review of Awkward by Marni Bates :)

Official Book Summary:
“Big-hearted Chloe Camden is the queen of her universe until her best friend shreds her reputation and her school counselor axes her junior independent study project. Chloe is forced to take on a meaningful project in order to pass, and so she joins her school’s struggling radio station, where the other students don’t find her too queenly. Ostracized by her former BFs and struggling with her beloved Grams’s mental deterioration, lonely Chloe ends up hosting a call-in show that gets the station much-needed publicity and, in the end, trouble. She also befriends radio techie and loner Duncan Moore, a quiet soul with a romantic heart. On and off the air, Chloe faces her loneliness and helps others find the fun and joy in everyday life. Readers will fall in love with Chloe as she falls in love with the radio station and the misfits who call it home.”

The Girl In The Steel Corset Review

I just finished The Girl in The Steel Corset and it was definitely an interesting book. It was the first steampunk book I have ever read and I can't wait to start reading more steampunk books.

The Girl In The Steel Corset follows a group of friends led under a powerful, teenage duke. They all have something special they are able to do. The main character, Finley, is fleeing from her employer and stumbles across Griffin(the duke) when he hits her with his car. He takes her in to his mansion and tries to help her and figure out why she has certain mysterious attributes.  There is slight romance between Finley and Griffin, although the social difference between them prevents them from being able to date each other. The side characters, Emily and Sam, also have some issues and fight constantly over what Emily had done to Sam. The last character that is involved a lot, is Jasper, an American cowboy, that seems to always be hiding something.

I loved the characters and thought that the author did a really good job of creating such a unique world in England. The characters were all really different, although I just could not seem to like Finely very much. For the not so great, I did really not like some of the character’s theories in the book about different sorts of things. Overall, I thought this was a pretty cute read. I’d give it 3 out of 5 stars. I definitely will be reading the sequel when it comes out :)

Happy Reading!
Montana


In 1897 England, 16-year-old Finley Jayne is convinced she's a freak. No normal Victorian girl has a darker side that makes her capable of knocking out a full-grown man with one punch. Only Griffin King sees the magical darkness inside her that says she's special . . . that she's one of "them."
