Production Company: Lionsgate Entertainment

Starring: Tom Holland as Todd Hewitt & Daisy Ridley as Viola Eade

The Knife Of Never Letting Go paperback (UK Edition)

Summary: Todd Hewitt is the only boy in a town of men. Ever since the settlers were infected with the Noise germ, Todd can hear everything the men think, and they hear everything he thinks. Todd is just a month away from becoming a man, but in the midst of the cacophony, he knows that the town is hiding something from him — something so awful Todd is forced to flee with only his dog, whose simple, loyal voice he hears too. With hostile men from the town in pursuit, the two stumble upon a strange and eerily silent creature: a girl. Who is she? Why wasn’t she killed by the germ like all the females on New World? Propelled by Todd’s gritty narration, readers are in for a white-knuckle journey in which a boy on the cusp of manhood must unlearn everything he knows in order to figure out who he truly is.

Yoon_9780553496680_jkt_all_r1.indd3.The Sun Is Also A Star

Starring: Yara Shahidi as Natasha & Charles Melton as Daniel

The Sun Is Also A Star Movie Tie-In Edition (Pre-Order; Available April 2019)

Summary: Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

Five Feet Apart by Rachel Lippincott4. Five Feet Apart
Based On: Five Feet Apart by Rachel Lippincott
Release Date:
March 22, 2019
Production Company:
CBS Films

Starring: Haley Lu Richardson as Stella & Cole Sprouse as Will

Five Feet Apart Movie Tie-In Edition (Pre-Order; Available February 2019)

Summary: Can you love someone you can never touch?

Stella Grant likes to be in control—even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions.

The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals.

Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment.

What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?

Echo Lake Entertainment 
Film to be distributed by Netflix!

Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.

When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.

By Your Side, her upcoming 2017 YA Contemporary: When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.

Only he doesn’t come. No one does.

Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?”

A Monster Calls Teaser Trailer Review

Yesterday A Monster Calls Teaser Trailer released   🙂

Watch it below!

A-Monster-Calls-CoverA Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, Shioban Dowd, and Jim Kay

Publisher- Walker Books

Released- September 27, 2011

Summary: The monster showed up after midnight. As they do.

But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting. He’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming…

This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.

It wants the truth.

Thoughts: I really love this trailer. Even though its just a teaser, I know the full trailer will be fantastic.

This trailer followed the book very well and really did not give too much away.

I also feel they got the monster quite well. Even though  we only see it for a few seconds, from what I saw the monster looked quite similar to the monster from the illustrations and book in general.

I feel the cinematography and overall feel of the trailer captured the eerie and mysterious tone of the book.

A Monster Calls Releases in theaters October 2016

What are your thoughts on the trailer?

Have you read the book?

Does this trailer make you want to see the movie? 🙂

 

 

 

October 2015 Wrap-Up

# of books read: 7

Marvels_Cover1. The Marvels by Brian Selznick

Publisher: Scholastic Press- Released September 15, 2015

Pages: 665

My Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarFull Starhalf star--Book Blog

Summary: Two seemingly unrelated stories–one in words, the other in pictures–come together. The illustrated story begins in 1766 with Billy Marvel, the lone survivor of a shipwreck, and charts the adventures of his family of actors over five generations. The prose story opens in 1990 and follows Joseph, who has run away from school to an estranged uncle’s puzzling house in London, where he, along with the reader, must piece together many mysteries.

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

Overall Thoughts: If I could describe this book in one word it would be “magical.” Brian’s writing style and additional illustrations really transports you. At the start of the novel, the illustrations lead us to believe that generations of Marvels make it big in acting on a London stage. However, as the story progresses, Joseph, the main protagonist, does everything he can to uncover the mysteries surrounding The Marvels. By the novel’s conclusion, we realize that Albert made the story up. I was surprised when that was revealed, because while there were some hints throughout that Albert was connected in some way, I never would have guessed he based that story on moments in his life. This was my first Brian Selznick book and I was very impressed! I did take away 1/2 a star because at times I felt the plot was lagging.  If you enjoy middle grade, adventure, and historical fiction, you should definitely pick this book up.

img_87692. Air Awakens by Elise Kova (Air Awakens #1)

Full Review of Air Awakens

Publisher: Silver Wing Press-Released August 27, 2015

Pages: 377

My Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarFull StarFull Star

Summary: A library apprentice, a sorcerer prince, and an unbreakable magic bond…

The Solaris Empire is one conquest away from uniting the continent, and the rare elemental magic sleeping in seventeen-year-old library apprentice Vhalla Yarl could shift the tides of war.

Vhalla has always been taught to fear the Tower of Sorcerers, a mysterious magic society, and has been happy in her quiet world of books. But after she unknowingly saves the life of one of the most powerful sorcerers of them all—the Crown Prince Aldrik—she finds herself enticed into his world. Now she must decide her future: Embrace her sorcery and leave the life she’s known, or eradicate her magic and remain as she’s always been. And with powerful forces lurking in the shadows, Vhalla’s indecision could cost her more than she ever imagined.

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

Overall Thoughts: This was an amazing debut! Elise created a very complex world where elemental magic plays a huge role. The characters, world, and plot were wonderfully developed and if you are looking for a breath of fresh air from YA Fantasy, definitely pick this book up.

Carry on 13. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Full Review of Carry On

Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin-Released: October 6, 2015

Pages: 522

My Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarFull StarFull Star

Summary: Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen.

That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.

Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here—it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

Overall Thoughts: I loved this book! Returning to a world with Baz and Simon again was truly magical. The pacing was perfect and the alternating POV was a surprise to me, but Rainbow truly understood each character’s POV & I felt I understood them too. Baz&Simon’s friendship/relationship development was done perfectly. Rainbow again creates a story where you fall in love with each and every page.

Rose Society 94. The Rose Society (The Young Elites #2) by Marie Lu

Full Review of The Rose Society

Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers- Released: October 13, 2015

Pages: 395

My Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarFull Starhalf star--Book Blog

Summary: Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she and her sister flee Kenettra to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers who nearly killed her.

But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good, when her very existence depends on darkness?

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

Overall Thoughts: What a great sequel. Same as the Legend Trilogy, Marie Lu knows how to develop her characters and plot and give them much more depth than the previous novel. Adelina gets much more darker and that truly shows with her internal thoughts. 1/2 a star is taken away, because I feel the world is not fully developed. By that I mean I can’t truly picture the world for this trilogy for some reason. But other than that, this really is a great sequel.

six-crows-leigh-bardugo-cover5. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (Six of Crows #1)

Full Review of Six of Crows

Publisher: Henry Holt& Co.-Released September 29, 2015

Pages: 465

My Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarFull Starhalf star--Book Blog

Summary: Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

Overall Thoughts: I really loved this book! While I wasn’t a huge fan of the Grisha Trilogy, I felt that was mostly due to the world. I didn’t feel I understood enough of it to enjoy it. However with this book, I can tell that Leigh’s world-building improved. Each character has their own unique voice and the 3-person POV makes it easier to switch between characters. 1/2 a star is taken away because at points the plot felt quite slow and I wish there was more setting descriptions. But overall, a great start to a new world from Leigh!

Patrick ness 46. The Rest Of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

Full Review of The Rest Of Us Just Live Here

Publisher: HarperTeen- Released October 6, 2015

Pages: 336

My Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarFull Star

Summary:

What if you aren’t the Chosen One?

The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?

What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.

Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.

Even if your best friend is worshiped by mountain lions.

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

Overall Thoughts: This was an entertaining read. I loved how this whole book played wit the whole idea of the “Chosen One.” I also loved the diversity in this book. However this book gave little explanation to how the “Indie Kids” got their powers, sometimes the pacing of this book was rather slow, and it didn’t feel like there wasn’t much plot. Overall, it was a really fun book to read and having read read another one of Patrick’s books in the past, I can understand that is just his style.

181069857. Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios (Dark Caravan Cycle #1)

Full Review of Exquisite Captive

Publisher: Balzer+Bray- Released October 7, 2014

Pages: 480

My Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarFull Starhalf star--Book Blog

Summary: Forced to obey her master.
Compelled to help her enemy.
Determined to free herself.

Nalia is a jinni of tremendous ancient power, the only survivor of a coup that killed nearly everyone she loved. Stuffed into a bottle and sold by a slave trader, she’s now in hiding on the dark caravan, the lucrative jinni slave trade between Arjinna and Earth, where jinn are forced to grant wishes and obey their human masters’ every command. She’d give almost anything to be free of the golden shackles that bind her to Malek, her handsome, cruel master, and his lavish Hollywood lifestyle.

Enter Raif, the enigmatic leader of Arjinna’s revolution and Nalia’s sworn enemy. He promises to free Nalia from her master so that she can return to her ravaged homeland and free her imprisoned brother—all for an unbearably high price. Nalia’s not sure she can trust him, but Raif’s her only hope of escape. With her enemies on the hunt, Earth has become more perilous than ever for Nalia. There’s just one catch: for Raif’s unbinding magic to work, Nalia must gain possession of her bottle…and convince the dangerously persuasive Malek that she truly loves him. Battling a dark past and harboring a terrible secret, Nalia soon realizes her freedom may come at a price too terrible to pay: but how far is she willing to go for it?

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

Overall Thoughts: Not having read books featuring Jinn/Genies in YA before I really enjoyed this book. Nalia as a main character made this book so great. She is strong and fighting for her freedom. Raif and Zanari, Ajinna rebels, want to make Arjinna free again, so they need Nalia  to retrieve an ancient sigil that will help them with the rebellion. Once Nalia gets it, she can be free. Not only is Nalia fighting for her freedom, but she is also trying to find the sigil and avoid being killed by and Arjinna assassin sent by the new rulers who want to destroy her caste. I did take away 1/2 a star because I wanted more interaction/development of Raif and Zanari with Nalia and I wish the pacing was a little faster. Other than that, this was a great YA Fantasy.

My Rating:Full StarFull StarFull StarFull Star

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

My Thoughts: What made this book entertaining was how it played against the whole idea of the “Chosen One” and centered around those on the sidelines. Patrick Ness does a great job with characters. He makes them complex and interesting.

With this book centering around those who aren’t the “Chosen One”, we really get to see how supernatural events affect them and how they try their best to adjust to what is going on while still just trying to live their life.

While I did really enjoy this book, I felt the pacing was slow at times and took me out of the story every now and again. I also found it difficult to get a grasp on the powers that the “indie kids” had and just wish their was a little more explanation in terms of world building and how these powers came about.

Overall,  it was a fun read, one I recommend if you don’t want to read the typical “Chosen One” story,  and want a unique story.  Also if you want a story with diverse and complex characters I think you would really enjoy this book.

Top 10 Books on my Fall TBR

Top 10 Tuesday Banner

This Book Blog list idea “Top 10 Tuesday”  was created by The Broke and the Bookish

Today’s topic is top 10 books for my Fall TBR.

  1. Carry on 1Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I am a huge Rainbow Rowell fan and having Simon & Baz from Fangirl have their very own book sounds amazing! I cannot wait to see how this book turns out!

Ice like Fire 102. Ice Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes #2) by Sara Raasch

I read the first book Snow Like Ashes, back in Oct. of 2014! I thought the concept of seasons as kingdoms was very unique and I really loved the main character! I cannot wait to see how the trilogy continues.

 

Rose Society 93. The Rose Society (The Young Elites #2) by Marie Lu

Similar to Rainbow Rowell, I have read all of Marie Lu’s other books and can’t wait to see after the ending of The Young Elites, what happens in book 2!

Patrick ness 44. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

The concept of this book sounds fascinating! I have read 2 other books by Patrick Ness, which include The Monster Calls and More Than This. I really enjoy his writing style and the unique stories he comes up with!

Dreamstrider 25. Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith

Similar to The Rest of Us Just Live Here, this book has a unique plot and I cannot wait to see how the author executes this idea.

A Madness so discreet 56. A Madness so Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

Of course, similar to most of the books listed above, I have read Mindy’s other books (Not a Drop to Drink Dualogy) and really loved it. I loved Mindy’s writing style and cannot wait to see it in a YA Historical Fiction.

Blue VOyage 87. Blue Voyage by Diana Renn

This is a YA Espionage novel, and I really love YA novels from this genre. Such as Ally Carter’s Heist Society, Gallagher Girl’s, and Embassy Row Series! So, when I read this book’s synopsis, I knew it would be something I would like. Not only that, but it takes place in the Middle East, which sounds fascinating to me!

Oct 208. Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

The concept of this book sounds very interesting. It is also a YA Sci-Fi which I honestly don’t read much of, but I will give this book a try.

six-crows-leigh-bardugo-cover9. Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (Six of Crows #1)

I read the Grisha Trilogy earlier this year and liked it. While I was a little underwhelmed, especially when it came to world building, I am happy the Leigh is returning to the Grisha world and expanding on it with a new cast of characters.

Spinning Starlight 710. Spinning Starlight by R.C. Lewis 

R.C. Lewis released Stitching Snow last year, and it was a Snow White retelling. Though it may sound similar to the Lunar Chronicles, believe me it is a completely different story. The sequel will be a retelling of The Wild Swans fairytale and will take place in another world not related to Stitching Snow.
