Tithe by Holly Black

Cover art: 6/7
Title: 5.5/7
Story: 3/7
Characters: 3/7
Overall: 5/7

Well the blurb was before as was the picture so I shall just get into the review. I want to start by saying the first 7-10 chapters were CRAP. Couldnt stand it. It was slow starting and overall a bit of a disappointment. I was expecting way more from this book, perhaps too much! The worst thing is it has the potential to be amazing! And for me it took a while to get into and the rest was so-so. I dont know about the rest of you but what gets me into the books, well part of it, is my ability to be able to relate to the characters, not just that but i also like drawing out the parts that seem like they really could happen (Meaning the parts without pixies!) and it just seemed wrong to me. I just couldnt enjoy it as much as i would have liked.
I will say this though, the emotion in the book was great and i felt myself feeling what the characters were feeling and they are slowly growing on me. I enjoyed the ending and as i hate to say this I think I am looking forward to to next one. I'm going to enjoy seeing where this story is taken.

I say this is up to you. If you liked the blurb then give it a try. Its great to go into this one without any expectations. But it wasnt too bad.

And this one is mine = ]


Need by Carrie Jones

Cover Art: 4/7
Title: 4.5/7
Story: 5.5/7
Overall: 5/7

Pain shoots through my head.
Fireworks. Explosions. All inside my brain.
Thw white gold goes dark and I know what's about to happen.

Zara While suspects a freaky guy is stalking her. She memorizes phobias and chants them when she's nervous. OK. She hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But moving to a freezing Maine town to stay with her grandmother is supposed to be the perfect fix - so her mum says.
 Except, this plan of sending Zara away to help her stay sane? Yeah, not working. Turns out the stalker is not a figment of Zara's imagination. He's still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right - not human - in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs are pointing to Zara.

Well this book absolutely rocked! The characters were amazing, with a wild grandmother, a cute boy who everyone loves and the crazy kooky friends. There are pixies AND were creatures (No, not just wolves!) which as crazy as it may sound. is an awesome combination! Zara's character is quirky, memorizing and chanting her many phobia's (You may just learn something new) and she seems charming enough. Although I could predict the ending, that doesnt mean you will! I have a gift for it. But this ending is wild! Chances are you'll fall in love with Nick, as he seems what a perfect man should be. Tall, attractive, polite and all round just amazing! Theres a pretty big twist that involves the stalker, and its pretty shocking! But like i said this book is amazing! The whole time reading this I was egging on, not only Nick and Zara to get together(Which they do! Sorry, spoiler) but also Issie and Devyn. They are the most charismatic and charming people and are SO in love with eachother! I'm looking forward to seeing how this progresses. The way this ended leaves it free to take on many new levels and forms and I'm excited!!
I'm really looking forward to the sequel 'Captivate' which i'm getting soon! And i suggest you read this book! Like go out and buy it now cause you'll love it!!


So i have recently gotten bored! I would like to start my reviews out on a good note so I'm going to review something else tonight, and than 'Tithe by Holly Black' On monday instead of wednesday! Enjoy my review xD

Book/Song of the week!

This weeks book of the week is *Insert drum roll here* Halo!
"Its very powerful, but the teacher got mas when one of the boys said something about Lady Capulet"
"What did he say?"
"He called her a MILF, which must be offensive because Miss Castle called him a thug and sent him out of the room. What is a MILF?"
"Some Acronym for a teenage obscenity, I imagine"
"Yes, but do you know what it means?"
"Its a term used by adolescent males used to describe a woman who ib both arrtactive, and a mother"
"I'm sure it must stand for something"
"It does, Ivy can you remember what it stands for?"
"I believe it stands for Mother I'd Like to.......Befriend"
"Is that all? What a fuss over nothing. I really think Miss Castle needs to chill"

This weeks song is 'One man drinking games' By mayday Parade! This song is amazing!

Wow this is amazing! I've wanted to make a book blog for a while and here I am! I just want to take a moment to welcome everyone to my awesome new blog and hope you have an awesome time!

My first Book review will be 'Tithe' by Holly Black. Here's the synopsis!
Sixteen-year-old Kaye finds a white-haired young man of exotic appearance bleeding to death in a rain-drenched wood and saves his life. From that moment nothing in her life will ever be the same. Soon she is plunged into an inhuman world of conflict and betrayal, with a sacrifice -- hers -- and a kingdom as the prize. Cleverly combining romance with the resonance of myth, Holly Black masterfully evokes the dark heart of her conjured realm where Kaye must fight for her lover and her survival -- a place of wonder, to be sure, but also of trickery, decadence, brutality and blood.

I will be reviewing this on Wednesday!
