Book Review: What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen

Since her parents' bitter divorce, Mclean and her dad, a restaurant consultant, have been on the move - four towns in two years. Estranged from her mother and her mother's new family, Mclean has followed her dad in leaving the unhappy past behind. And each new place gives her a chance to try out a new persona: from cheerleader to drama diva. But now, for the first time, Mclean discovers a desire to stay in one place and just be herself - whoever that is. Perhaps her neighbor Dave, an academic superstar trying to be just a regular guy, can help her find out. Combining Sarah Dessen's trademark graceful writing, great characters, and compelling storytelling, What Happened to Goodbye is irresistible reading.

I LOVED this book! There are no words to describe the extrordinary content of this book! Once again Sarah Dessen has swept me off my feet into a world of one of her characters.

I loved all of the characters in this book. They were all well formed and distinct. McClean was misunderstood and unsure of herself. Dave new exactly who he was and what he was going to do and new he wasn't going to change it. Mr. Sweet was excepting and kind to his daughter during her different "forms" and Mrs. Sweet was downright annoying! (in a good way)

I suggest this book to anyone who wants to read a good book. A+

Waiting On Wednesday

Deadly Cool  Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday 
Hartley Grace Featherstone is having a very bad day. First she finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her with the president of the Herbert Hoover High School Chastity Club. Then he's pegged as the #1 suspect in a murder. And if that weren't enough, now he's depending on Hartley to clear his name. Seriously? Not cool. But as much as Hartley wouldn't mind seeing him squirm, she knows he's innocent, and she's the only one who can help him. Along with her best friend, Sam, and the school's resident Bad Boy, Chase, Hartley starts investigating on her own. But as the dead bodies begin to pile up, the mystery deepens, the suspects multiply, and Hartley begins to fear that she may be the killer's next victim
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly thing where I share books that I can't wait to read and share them with you. Deadly Cool comes out October 11, 2011!!!

Book Review: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

What if you knew exactly when you would die?

Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limited time she has left

I saw the book preview for this book about two months before it came out and told myself that I was going to get that book. I did and it was really good. I read the book in about fifteen hours and cried when I finished it because the next book comes out in 2012!

Wither takes place in the future where every living human that wasn't born in the 21st century had their life cut extremely short. It would have been creepy if the book wasn't written so well. There was never a boring moment which never let you put the book down!

The characters in this book were FANTASTIC! All of them had distinct, well formed personalities. I love Rhine and her persistence to escape. I am in love with Gabriel. Yes, I am in love with a fictional character. Rose made me laugh and cry as well as Jenna. Headmaster Vaughen scares me to death and Linden is oblivious to life.

I give this book an A++

Book Review:The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?

When I started hearing about how good the Forest of Hands and Teeth was I had to get the book and read it. I thought it would be the best book ever, I'd heard so many good things about it.
When I finally got around to reading the book I was completely captivated by Mary and her dysfunctional family and world. Later, though, the book started to get too many boring spots. It went exciting, boring, exciting, boring, exciting, boring, etc. I would have to say I expected more from the book.
The characters in this book were definitely intrusting to say the least. I loved the fact that Mary(the main character) was fearless and determined to do what she felt was right. She always wanted the imposable which made her successful. Travis and Harry were good characters but they didn't do anything special for me. Jed and Jacob were great. Just great. Cass was annoying and a little bit stuck up in my opinion. Just a little bit. Sister Tabitha scared me but was definitely a well crafted character.
Overall I give this book a -B.
