Review: The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games
by Suzanne Collins
My Rating: 10

In a future North America, where the rulers of Panem maintain control through an annual televised survival competition pitting young people from each of the twelve districts against one another, sixteen-year-old Katniss's skills are put to the test when she voluntarily takes her younger sister's place.

LAMENT: The Faerie Queen's Deception
by Maggie Stiefvater
Sixteen-year-old Deirdre Monaghan is a painfully shy but prodigiously gifted musician. She's about to find out she's also a cloverhand—one who can see faeries. Deirdre finds herself infatuated with a mysterious boy who enters her ordinary suburban life, seemingly out of thin air. Trouble is, the enigmatic and gorgeous Luke turns out to be a gallowglass—a soulless faerie assassin. An equally hunky—and equally dangerous—dark faerie soldier named Aodhan is also stalking Deirdre. Sworn enemies, Luke and Aodhan each have a deadly assignment from the Faerie Queen. Namely, kill Deirdre before her music captures the attention of the Fae and threatens the Queen's sovereignty. Caught in the crossfire with Deirdre is James, her wisecracking but loyal best friend. Deirdre had been wishing her life weren't so dull, but getting trapped in the middle of a centuries-old faerie war isn't exactly what she had in mind .

Captivate Review

Captivate by Carrie Jones
Rating: 7.5

Summary:Zara and her friends knew they hadn't solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king's needs grow deeper every day he's stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. It's made him vulnerable. And now there's a new king in town. A turf war is imminent, since the new pixie king, Astley, is moving in quickly. Nick nearly killed him in the woods on day one, but Zara came to his rescue. Astley swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he's one of the good guys. Nick isn't buying it, though Zara isn't as sure -- despite herself, she wants to trust the new king. But it's a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It's her life -- and his.

My Review: All in all, I thought Captivate was a really good book. Though it could have been a little more dramatic or exiting in some parts (It literary told you what was happening in the boo!). Unlike Need, Captivate branched farther away from it. Becoming more unlike the Twilight Saga. Some characters I thought didn't really matter, but they will probably play a greater role in books 3 and 4. I thought the characters were good and could feel some of the emotions going on in Captivate. I sometimes got lost though and had to reread those parts. I could also see a movie going on in my head. I liked this book a lot, but thought it could have been better. Captivate was also kind of cheesy with the way the characters were talking and everything, but there were also many twists and turns in this book.

New Design

I have finally found a blog background that I love and suits me. My goal is to post more and read at least one to two books a week. I also have a new format for grading. Not one-five, but one-ten. This goes into action today, March 16, 2010.

The Book Thief
by Markus Zusak
Stars I'll Give: Infinite
Summary from Amazon

It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . .

Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau.

This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul.

My Review: This book was so incredibly amazing only words can describe it. affect, alarm, astonish, astound, bewilder, blow away, blow one's mind, bowl over, daze, dumbfound, electrify, flabbergast*, impress, move, perplex, put one away, shock, stagger, startle, strike, stun, stupefy, touch. This book is a real read-under-the-bed-at-two-in-the-morning-trying-to-finish-book.
Note: This book may seem to start out real slow, but DO NOT STOP. I did am still am regretting it. IT will get better!

Note: I have read the Last Song, Lock and Key, and Just Listen(Remy and Dexter were in a part of the book. I think there the main characters in This Lullaby.) I loved,liked, and loved these books. I suggest you read them if you like romance or not. Be prepared to cry a little in the Last Song.
