Abandon


Abandon is the first book in a new YA contemporary fantasy trilogy by the best-selling, beloved author Meg Cabot!

Ever since Pierce died almost two years ago, she has felt different. According to studies, this is normal. After all, she was dead - then brought back to life. Who wouldn't be different after experiencing that?

Thing is, Pierce has good reason to feel not as attached to the world of the living - she was, for a short time, attached to the world of the dead. And in that world she met someone.

And he wants her back.

Her Mom decides to move the two of them to a small Florida island community where she grew up, to see if that might brighten up Pierce. Pierce has been running into more trouble than she ever used to. Ever since she died.

Ever since she met him.

But Pierce knows that moving isn't going to stop him from following. He's always gonna be there when she needs help.

Whether she likes it or not...

OMG - I loved it!!!!!!!!!

I was excited for Abandon, as I am always excited for a new Meg Cabot book - but wow!!! Abandon is more reminiscent of the Mediator series that first introduced me to Meg Cabot, but with a unique, phenomenal fantasy plot - a retelling of the Persephone myth! She presents us with a heroine I've never met before - inattentive, both sweet and direct, plotting and naive, and amazingly amazing!

Trust me: Pierce is awesome, the plot is perfect, and Abandon is FANTASTIC!!! It's dark, mysterious, and layered in sizzling mythology updated by a brilliant, creative mind (a.k.a. Meg Cabot). John (the "him" stalking Pierce from the Underworld) is extremely hot - he's dangerous, forbidden, enigmatic, terribly masculine, complicated, tortured, and hard not to be enamored with!

I was glued to, obsessed with, and adoring of this book! Abandon awakened my pure book-loving passion! It is one of those stories that sweeps you up into it, an escape that is all-encompassing and cinematic in scale. I wanted to devour it, yet savor it. It crackles with paranormal romance and suspense, intense and electric.

We have an insanely attractive lead in John and chemistry between him and Pierce that is incredibly steamy, yet chaste. I loved the past-tense storytelling method and the slowly revealed moments from Pierce's sad, shocking life since her near-death experience. Everything is very ominous and tense - awesome!

As you can tell, I am more than ready for the next installment in this trilogy!!! Meg Cabot has done it again, folks! Thank goodness we have the sequel to Insatiable (Meg's witty adult-novel response to the vampire craze) coming out in July - Overbite. But I am dying (pun intended) for the next book in this trilogy!!! I must have more John and Pierce!!! :)

Thank you, Meg!!!

Reckless

Reckless is a YA fantasy adventure by the ever-revered (for good reason) Cornelia Funke.

Jacob Reckless has been passing through a mirror portal in his father's forgotten (or, rather, ignored) study for years now. After his father disappeared and his mother became a shell of her former self, he found it. Since then, it's been hard to stay tethered to his world - instead, he's become more and more connected to the alternative option.

In fact, he's managed to make a name for himself as a treasure hunter. And always by his side is a loyal vixen named Fox, a shape-shifter. She's probably the closest thing he has to a friend - but Jacob still considers himself a loner. But he's become comfortable with the different creatures, monsters, and magic this world has to offer - even though right now they are at war with a stone people called Goyl. None of that interests him. He just seeks out his mysterious objects and fetches good prices.

But that's all about to change. …

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.

Again.

When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Titanic: S.O.S.

S.O.S. is the third and final book in Gordon Korman's middle-grade Titanic trilogy.

This is the third book in a trilogy, book addicts! You must, I repeat, must read the first two books (Unsinkable and Collision Course) before you read this review. Otherwise you are just going to ruin all the twists! Sure, we know the Titanic sinks - but the surprises that are revealed about our characters, among other things, should not be spoiled!

But all of you that have read the first two books (which I hope are many of you, because this a great series), can rest assured that I won't spoil anything from S.O.S. itself - just a basic recap and my opinion.

Here goes:

The Titanic is sinking. No one wants to believe it, but the bow is almost imperceptibly starting to dip into the freezing Atlantic Ocean - and our four main characters are thrown into a race for survival.

Paddy is locked up below deck, having finally been caught as a stowaway. In one cell over are the very criminals that wish him dead…
