The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett

Image
The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett By Chelsea Sedoti

Summary: A teenage misfit named Hawthorn Creely inserts herself in the investigation of missing person Lizzie Lovett, who disappeared mysteriously while camping with her boyfriend. Hawthorn doesn't mean to interfere, but she has a pretty crazy theory about what happened to Lizzie. In order to prove it, she decides to immerse herself in Lizzie's life. That includes taking her job... and her boyfriend. It's a huge risk — but it's just what Hawthorn needs to find her own place in the world.
1/5 Stars
So I got this book thinking that it would be a quick, fast paced, mystery. But no.... Its just sorta weird. Honestly, it could have been a cute, somewhat good book if the main character was decent. However, I could not stand Hawthorn. She was the most obnoxious, self-centered, annoying girl I have ever "met". Now, Hawthorn also isn't really doing any investigating. She never "inserts herself in the investigatio…

Starr Fall

Starr Fall By Kim Briggs

Summary: On the run from the Organization, Starr never planned on falling in love.

Starr Bishop’s the complete package. A perfect smile, brains to match, and a winning attitude. Boys want to date her and girls want to be her. She’s the type of girl you want to hate, if only she wasn’t so damn likable. But don’t worry, she’s not interested in your boyfriend. Boys are one complication she can live without.

When the Organization decides she’s not only the model student but the ideal assassin, Starr’ll need a lot more than high test scores and extracurricular involvement to get herself out of that commitment.

Dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood is the last person she’d expect—or even want— to come to her rescue. From opposite ends of Webster High’s social hierarchy, their lives collide in one electrifying moment. Christian isn’t the Goth loner he pretends to be, he’s a part Cherokee, All-American boy who wants to be a hero, Starr’s hero. Christian makes Starr …

Love intervenes with the intention of setting things right—but she doesn’t anticipate the intrusion of her dreaded nemesis: the Rebound.

WE ARE BACK!!!!! Or at least I am back, but I will try to get Lark to post something next week. Or even this week... I feel like we should post a ton this week just to try to make up for the slacker job we have been doing for the past month, so I am posting this today instead of tomorrow. IM SORRY!!!! Our last post is just a reminder of our failure!!! I wanted to post and I was planning to post, but we were both so busy that we weren't even reading anything!! But we are back and there is even a photo on our review now, so that's something!!!! Also, I am planning to return to our normal schedule (after this week obviously, because I am posting on Thursday....). Ok anyways, enough of that, time to get into the review.

Posting Schedule Update

Hello! As you might have noticed we have been posting reviews much less frequently. Both Lark and I have been incredibly busy the past few weeks and we haven't had time to review books, or actually even read them. We don't want to stop completely, so we will try to post one every other week. We do want to resume our original schedule at some point, but right now, we are just not able to keep posting one every week. We are very sorry.

Melody's Key By Dallas Coryell
Summary:
“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.

The Darkest Minds

The Darkest Minds By Alexandra Bracken
Summary: When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America’s children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they could not control.

The Fault In Our Stars

The Fault In Our Stars By John Green
Summary:
"I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once."

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning author John Green's most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

3.5/5 Stars
Ok, so I know that a lot of people love this book, but for me it just isn't five stars. I didn't hate it, but I also didn't love it. I read this a few years ago, and everyone was obsessed with it, and I think the reason that I didn't love it is because I expected a lot more. I did think it was cu…

Summary: In this groundbreaking debut essay collection, featuring never-before-seen photos, actress Lily Collins—star of Mortal Instruments and the upcoming Rules Don’t Apply—is opening a poignant, honest conversation about the things young women struggle with: body image, self-confidence, relationships, family, dating, and so much more.

For the first time ever, Lily shares her life and her own deepest secrets, underlining that every single one of us experiences pain and heartbreak. We all understand what it’s like to live in the light and in the dark. For Lily, it’s about making it through to the other side, where you love what you see in the mirror and where you embrace yourself just as you are. She's learned that all it takes is one person standing up and saying something for everyone else to realize they’re not alone.

By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Lily’s honest voice will inspire you to be who you are and say what you …

I Am Number Four

I Am Number Four By Pittacus Lore
Summary: Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books--but we are real.

Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. We have lived among you without you knowing.

But they know.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.

I am Number Four.

I am next.
4.5/5 Stars
