My Poems- Love Is An Illusion (7/15/09)

Palms all sweaty, my hearts racin’.

Silly dreams, I’m still chasin’.

All in love with the idea of being in love,

Still waiting for Mr. Perfect to come from up above.

Until then I play the game!

They say they’re different, but in reality they’re all the same!

Lying, cheating, breakin’ my heart!

Relationships end before they start!

All they’re after is a girls virginity,

say no and they’re no longer into me.

They want a girl to follow their command,

bow down to their every demand!

Love is just an illusion,

something he uses for his amusion

He whispers in my ear, saying he’ll never leave

he says he needs my love to breathe!

All the while knowing hes got someone on the side!

how many more are along for the ride?

He doesn’t see the wrong!

Haha be assured, I wont be blind for long!

I can play it too

Dont eff with me and I wont eff with you!!

Why can’t they just be true?

and not expect me to do what they say on cue!!

Cuz baby it don’t work like that,

play with fire and you’ll get burned right back!!!!

Alice by J.M. Sullivan Review

Alice: The Wanderland Chronicles(Click Here to Add to your Goodreads Shelf)

Goodreads Description

“Always protect your queen.”

Ever since the outbreak of the Plague, life hasn’t been easy, and for seventeen-year-old Alice Carroll, it just got worse. Her sister, Dinah, has contracted the ‘un-deadly’ Momerath Virus and without a cure, will soon be worse than dead. She’ll be momerath.

Alice must leave the safety of the Sector and venture into Momerath Territory to find the antidote – if it exists. Chasing a rumor about a mysterious doctor with the cure, Alice falls down the rabbit hole into Wanderland, where ravenous momerath aren’t the only danger lurking.

My Review

I was given this ARC by Netgalley for an honest review. Now let me start by saying that I have never read Alice in Wonderland nor have I watched the movie. I know the basis of it and I think this was a great spin on the concept. I recognized the names of the people and I loved the way the author twisted the roles to fit the post apocalyptic scenario. Basically Alice goes on a mission in search for a cure to save her sister Dinah from turning into a momerath. Alice is fierce and pretty much a badass. I think she was a strong female character.

Rating I gave: 4 out of 5 stars

Would I recommend this: Yes

Melody’s Key by Dallas Coryell

Melody's Key (Click to add to your Goodreads shelf)

Goodreads Description

“His eyes settled on her…piercing green embers of flame that revealed the ferocity of his pain and passion, yet still shrouded him under veils of ever deepening mystery that made every ounce of her ache to unravel him.”

Tegan Lockwood’s dreams were dead, sacrificed on the noble altar of duty before they ever had a chance to live. Her entire existence was disappearing into the abyss of apathy as she labored her days away keeping her family’s struggling business alive. There would be no emotion, no color, no beauty in her life. That is, until a mysterious visitor begins to draw her out of the darkness of her past towards something that will challenge the boundaries of her world, and unlock the most deeply held secrets of her heart.

My Review

Okay so do you know that feeling when you are reading something and you get that happy giddy feeling until you realize that there are too many pages left in this book to be feeling like all is right in the world. Yeah this gave me that feeling. But in the end it was definitely worth it. I absolutely loved Tegan , Mason, and Ryleigh, Simon, pretty much all Tegans family. Their lovingness and personality are just so 🤗. I definitely think that if you like contemporary reads, you should check this one out.

Rating that I gave: 4 out of 5 starts

Textrovert By Lindsey Summers Review

Textrovert by Lindsey  Summers

Goodreads Book Description (Click to add to your Shelf)

Can you fall in ♥ with someone you’ve never met?

Summer is nearly over and Keeley is about to start her senior year when disaster strikes: she picks up the wrong cell phone by mistake. 😞 Just her luck that it belongs to Talon, a totally arrogant jock 🏈 who’s just left for football camp—with her phone. Keeley doesn’t know him, but they’ll need to rely on each other to forward their messages for an entire week.

Talon is so full of himself, but Keeley quickly discovers he’s funny, too—at least his texts are. 😅 And he listens to Keeley—which is more than anyone else does. Texting Talon, she can be more than just the quiet twin sister of a popular boy. Texting Talon, she can be the outgoing person she’s always wanted to be. Soon the two are falling for each other, hard.

But when true identities are revealed and secrets are exposed, will Keeley’s feelings stay the same?

My Review

So let me start off by saying that this was the second time that I have read this book and I absolutely loved it both times. I read it when she was writing it on Wattpad and I also received an ARC from Netgalley. (THANK YOU). This story is such a cute fun fast read that pulled me out of my reading slump. I absolutely loved Keeley. I like the overall feel that you get from reading this. I must admit though, I am 85% sure that a lot was taken out of this book which made me sad, because I really loved what was taken out. Anyways I am so glad that the wattpad story is being published!

My rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Would you recommend this to someone: YES!!!

Aftermath by Joe Reyes Review

Aftermath

This book was given to me to review by booktasters and the author. I gave it 3.5 stars. It is a post-apocalyptic novel that follows several people as they try to survive this dog eat dog world.  Each chapter if one of the 8(I think it was 8) main characters point of view.

In a way, it reminds me of Walking Dead but without the zombies. You have power hungry maniacs versus the government, and several people just trying to live their lives (in fear) without being … hurt.

I think my main issue with this was the number of POVs. I couldn’t remember who was who at first, but once i got used to it, I was better off. I really liked the amount of action there was. There was always something going on.

 

Anyways, I’m not that great at reviews… YET! but if you have any tips or advice let me know in the comments! Thanks and until next time!

Newbie Book Tag!!

Well what better way to start out than with a newbie book tag? So with out further ado… Is  that even how you spell it? Oh well lets begin…

1.) Why did you start this blog?

Honestly, I feel like no one reads my captions on my instagram pictures and I’m way too shy for BookTube so I decided to try this middle ground. I want to be able to actually interact with you all in the book community. With that said, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO COMMENT!!!! I love talking to you all.

2.) What are some fun and unique things you can bring to book blogging?

Well… ummm… I like books? and we can talk about books … I’ll post pictures of my dogs too if that helps… and I have cakes!!!! sometimes.

Image may contain: dog

3.) What are you most excited about for this new blog?

Talking about books with you all of course and attempting reviews! Also definitely book tags!!! (Feel free to tag me in them!!!)

4.) Why do you love reading?

I love escaping into a new world and all the feels I get from reading books. I can go from happy to angry to being in love to crying my eyes out within one story and it is amazingly satisfying!!

5.) What book or series got you into reading?

I know this is a typical cliche response but Harry Potter was the first series that I remember falling in love with in third grade! I still have the book! I think I had won it at school or I was just given it.

6. What questions would you ask your favorite authors?

This one is hard. I would be too shell shocked to even think of a question. Maybe I would have to ask…

Can you promise that you will never end the series… continue on to Harry Potters children and their children and their children… I mean umm nevermind.

7.) What challenges do you think starting a blog will be the hardest to overcome?

I think trying to post as much as I want and not getting discouraged if no one actually reads. But at the the same time this is for me too. So I can get my thoughts out.

8. When did you start reading?

I’m not sure. I remember always having a book in my hand and being called a nerd (proud of it!!!)  Let’s just say third grade because that is what the book says.

9. Where do you read?

Well this may turn into a Dr. Seuss book. I can do it in a house, on top of a mouse(JK), with a fox in a box, in my bed, I can do it anywhere as I said. But mainly on the couch or in bed cuddle up.

10. What kind of books do you like to read?

YA! I like contemporaries, thrillers, horror, drama, fantasy, and pretty much everything!!!

And thats all folks!!! Let me know your answers to these questions. All of some.
