REVIEW: Glitch by Brenda Pandos





Excellent book! I cannot wait to read the next one in the series. I love seeing the evolution of Abby in the novel.  It's a lot to live up to a veritable superhero of a future self. It made me think of the terminator movie franchise,  This book goes at a good pace and left me lot of questions that I hope will be answered in the future books in this series!

5 out of 5

Review: Drawing Amanda by Stephanie Feuer





Excellent book about not only love and loss, but the dangers that lurk online in the form of predators.  The characters were well thought out and by the end of the book I found myself rooting for them. DO NOT try to do any of the plans they talked about or confront a predator yourself! Always go to a trusted adult or police officer with your concerns to keep yourself out of danger! This book is an important read for all teenagers because who knows from the safety of your own home what is lurking outside.

BOOK BLITZ: The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel


The Book of Ivy (The Book of Ivy #1)
by Amy Engel 
Release Date: 11/04/14
Entangled Teen

Summary from Goodreads:
After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual.

This year, it is my turn.

My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill the president’s son—my soon-to-be husband—and restore the Westfall family to power.

But Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled actor or he’s not the cruel, heartless boy my family warned me to expect. He might even be the one person in this world who truly understands me. But there is no escape from my fate. I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy.

Because Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him…



Here an an exclusive excerpt from the novel! (P.S. I am so excited for this book I am hoping to pick it up sometime this weekend!) 

[Bishop] lets out a frustrated sigh. “You don’t…you don’t have to be any certain way with me, Ivy. I don’t expect anything. I want you to be yourself.” He leans back and scrubs at his face with one hand. He sounds tired. “I just want to know who you are.”“Okay,” I say, while my brain searches for all the hidden meanings behind his words, trying to figure out what it is he really wants. Because it seems impossible that he is coming into this relationship without an agenda of his own. “What do you want to know?”
Bishop leans forward again and stares at me. “Everything,” he says quietly, and my stomach clenches. “Anything.”I know I have to tell him something, but I need to be careful. And even beyond the worries about all the secrets I hold, there is the nagging feeling that I’m not even sure who I am, apart from my family. For most of my life, I was the spare daughter, the one who would stay by my father’s side and work behind the scenes while Callie took center stage. And then, unexpectedly, two years ago, I became the focus. I’ve spent my whole life becoming the girl they need me to be, and I’ve shoved any parts that don’t fit so far down inside myself I don't think I can find them anymore. It is one more violation to have to reach down and offer myself up to this stranger.I force my fingers to stop worrying the cushion thread. “Umm…I don’t know.” I take a deep breath. “I like strawberries. I wish I were a few inches shorter. I’m scared of snakes. I like to read. My mother died when I was a baby.” I say the words fast, as if the sheer speed at which I spit them out will render them less personal, although they are hardly deep, dark secrets. I wonder if he knows what his father did to my family? How he took away my mother—had her killed—to remind us who has the power. Just thinking about it makes heat rush into my cheeks, my heart thundering against my ribs. I should stop, but instead, I look up at him, hold his eyes. “I don’t like the things your father does.” Callie may be the fiercer one, but there is a recklessness in me that cannot be contained. “Is that what you wanted to know?”
The expression on Bishop’s face doesn’t change, his eyes still and calm. “It’s a start,” he says eventually.

BOOK BLITZ: Love and other Unknown Variables by Shannon Alexander


Love and Other Unknown Variables
Release Date: 10/07/ 14
Entangled Teen</ o:p>

Summary from Goodreads:
Charlie Hanson has a clear vision of his future. A senior at Brighton School of Mathematics and Science, he knows he’ll graduate, go to MIT, and inevitably discover solutions to the universe’s greatest unanswered questions. He’s that smart. But Charlie’s future blurs the moment he reaches out to touch the tattoo on a beautiful girl’s neck. 

The future has never seemed very kind to Charlotte Finch, so she’s counting on the present. She’s not impressed by the strange boy at the donut shop—until she learns he’s a student at Brighton where her sister has just taken a job as the English teacher. With her encouragement, Charlie orchestrates the most effective prank campaign in Brighton history. But, in doing so, he puts his own future in jeopardy. </ i>

</ i>By the time he learns she's ill—and that the pranks were a way to distract Ms. Finch from Charlotte’s illness— Charlotte’s gravitational pull is too great to overcome. Soon he must choose between the familiar formulas he’s always relied on or the girl he’s falling for (at far more than 32 feet per second squared).

Special Excerpt! 

In Love and Other Unknown Variables, logical Charlie Hanson often loses his laser-like
focus on school and his future when he’s around Charlotte Finch. Case in point: the chick-
flick movie festival she convinces him to watch. Charlotte’s smile is a powerful force—one
from which Charlie is helpless to resist.
Midway through the second movie, Becca pauses it to use the restroom, leaving
Charlotte and me sitting in the dim light of the frozen television screen. My sister sure is a sucky
chaperone. Doesn’t she realize how dangerous it is to leave me unsupervised around beautiful
girls with infinity tattoos?
Charlotte nudges my shoulder with her own. “This is fun. Admit it.”
“This is a total chick-fest,” I say motioning toward the TV. “I don’t get what you guys
see in these movies. That last one had a terrible ending, and I can already see this one’s going
down the same path.”
“I admit that Romeo and Juliet are not my favorite couple. Being in love for three days is
an easy gig.”
“Exactly. They’d probably realize that they hate each other if they spent more time
together.”
“Or worse,” Charlotte says, hugging a pillow, “they’d grow indifferent and their love
would waste away. Nothing lasts forever.”
“That’s bleak. Maybe you shouldn’t hang out with me so much. I think I’m rubbing off
on you.”
Charlotte smacks me with the pillow she was holding. “Shut up, Hanson.”
“Now you sound like your sister.” I chuckle and toss the pillow back at her. She retaliates
by crashing two pillows around my head like cymbals.
“Game on,” I shout, grabbing as many pillows as I can and lobbing them at her one after
the other.
“Uncle! Uncle,” she squeals, lying buried on the couch.
Laughing, I clear away the pillows. Her dark curls are sticking up at odd angles, and
I reach out to smooth them back into place. Charlotte catches my hand in hers, and I cup her
cheek.
It feels as though someone has turned an electromagnet on inside of me. There is a force
out of my control pulling me in. Charlotte’s eyes flick to my lips, and I’m undone. I may have
been able to resist before, but now I give in to the pulling and press my lips to hers. They are
soft, softer than I imagined—better. Her hands are suddenly at my waist, one finger dipping
under the edge of my shirt. One finger and I groan like someone is lifting a one hundred pound
weight off my chest.
My tongue laps at her bottom lip, the one she bites on so much, and she parts her lips
just enough for me to taste it myself. A string tightens from my chest to my groin—so taut I can
barely breathe. She tastes like sugar, so soft and warm in my mouth, I ache.
Her hands slide up my sides and to my chest, where she gently pushes me back as she
pulls away. “Wait. We can’t do this.”
Without her lips on mine, my body loosens and I catch my breath. “Sorry. Charlotte, I’m
so—”
“Don’t. But we can’t. I can’t lose—”
“What are you guys doing?” Becca calls, walking in through the kitchen. “I heard
screaming from the bathroom.”
Charlotte’s cheeks darken in the dim light from the TV. A worry flickers across her face.
Becca. She can’t lose Becca.
Now you’ve done it, Chuck, the Greta in my head snarls. I’ve got to fix this.
“Help, Bec,” I shout, jumping away from Charlotte. “Charlotte attacked me. I was just
sitting here saying how much I loved this wonderful, romantic film, and WHAM. Pillow to my
head.”
Charlotte runs a hand through her curls and bites that lip of hers, making me want to
groan all over. My expression must be a sight, because she takes one look at me and laughs
before smacking me with a pillow.
“See? You gotta save me, sis.”
Becca chuckles. “You guys are lame.” She takes her seat on one side of Charlotte, who
smacks Becca in the face with another pillow before linking their arms.
Becca turns the movie back on. And I wonder what might have happened if she’d stayed
away just a little longer. The thought of kissing Charlotte again makes me feel like I’m being
sucked away into the vacuum of space. Which, if you’re wondering, is painful and scary and
leaves me almost breathless.
Through the darkness, Charlotte’s hand works its way into the crook of my arm, too. I
don’t move for the rest of the movie, afraid that if she lets go, I’ll float away again.
