This week's topic is Top Ten Best Sequels ever, Enjoy!

1. Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices #2)

 I really enjoyed Clockwork Angel but, I loved Clockwork Prince even more and the ending tore me up!

2. Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) By: Tahereh Mafi

I loved this one even more then the first, I can't wait to find out what happens in the last book!

3. The Elite (The Selection #2) By: Kiera Cass

I really enjoyed the selection but, I really loved the elite even more I really felt like the story grew and it was even better then the first. 

4. The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3) By: Richelle Mead

Ok, so technically it is the third book in a series but, this one was by far the best and I couldn't get over the amount of Sydrian we got in this book and it was definitely my favorite in the series so far!!

5. The Evolution Of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #2) By: Michelle Hodkin 

The Mara Dyer books are some of my favorite in YA and I loved the second book so much the ending completely killed me and I have been dying to read the last book. 

6. Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2) By: Marissa Meyer

I really enjoyed Scarlet because it was so much fun seeing all of the characters from both books come together. 

7. My Soul To Save (Soul Screamers #2) By: Rachel Vincent

I have really loved this series and I still haven't even read the last book yet, I am not ready for it to be over. Rachel Vincent created a great series with so many twists and turns and this book showed what the rest of the series was going to be like which was why I enjoyed it so much.    

8. Fever (The Chemical Garden Trilogy #2) By: Lauren DeStefano

Fever was a great sequel and I really loved the adventure that we got to embark on with Rhine in this one and we really found out so much more about her in this book.

Review: The Fault In Our Stars By: John Green

Title: The Fault In Our Stars
Author: John Green
Published : January 10th, 2012
Buy The Book: Amazon/Barnes and Noble
Source: Bought
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!
Goodreads Summary :

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.

My Thoughts:

I definitely had a good idea was I was getting into when I started this one considering it is one of the most popular books in YA since it was released I definitely had high hopes for this one. My expectations were definitely met, I felt all of the feels and I made the mistake of reading the end of this book right before I had to go to class and I think that everyone thought I was a little crazy because I felt like my heart had been ripped out and I definitely think that I ugly cried. I didn't know what to expect with John Green's writing and at first the hyper  intelligent banter threw me off a little but, once I got into it I really enjoyed it. There has been very few times that I have felt like I knew an author's personality before I have read their books, I am a huge fan of John's vlogs and I felt like his writing really fits him.

I am not going to summarize this one because I know so many people have read this one so I am just kind of going to talk about what I felt and what I enjoyed. Hazel's character was just someone that I wanted to be friends with, she was one of those people that made me think and feel. Green's writing for her was just perfect. I loved  that she had a favorite book that she had read over and over again. I also     loved that she felt just like me sometimes, she couldn't handle the ending of her favorite book she had to know what happened to her characters because of the way the author ended it. I definitely could relate and I feel that way with so many books that I read but , I usually just want to know everything about their futures and how their lives turn out.

Now onto Augustus, I loved him sooo much, he was perfect for Hazel. He made me smile and I just love how much he cared about Hazel. The banter between the two of them made me smile  and just thinking about what he did for Hazel makes me tear up all over again, he really brought out my feels and I really felt like he was a perfectly written character. He never took himself too seriously  and he was stronger than I ever believed that he could be.

Overall, John Green wrote an amazing story. Yes I was hesitant to read this one because it was a cancer book but, it was so much more than that. I am definitely looking forward to reading more of his books and I can only imagine that he has more amazing characters just like these two. Now having said all that I honestly don't think Green's writing will be for everyone and despite the popularity of The Fault In Our  Stars,  I know people might not be able to enjoy the hyper intelligence of the characters in this one.

What's Next!

I am so excited to be participating in a new meme every Thursday hosted  by Iceybooks, this meme is designed to help us bloggers get some help from our reader's on what to read next, so every week I will post 3 books that I am trying to decide between and you guys can vote on which one you think that I should read next. Cast your vote through the poll at the bottom of this post.

Happy Reading!

 My 3 choices for this week are:

Red Hill By: Jamie McGuire
Goodreads Summary:

When the world ends, can love survive?

For Scarlet, raising her two daughters alone makes fighting for tomorrow an everyday battle. Nathan has a wife, but can’t remember what it’s like to be in love; only his young daughter Zoe makes coming home worthwhile. Miranda’s biggest concern is whether her new VW Bug is big enough to carry her sister and their boyfriends on a weekend escape from college finals.

When reports of a widespread, deadly “outbreak” begin to surface, these ordinary people face extraordinary circumstances and suddenly their fates are intertwined. Recognizing they can’t outrun the danger, Scarlet, Nathan, and Miranda desperately seek shelter at the same secluded ranch, Red Hill. Emotions run high while old and new relationships are tested in the face of a terrifying enemy—an enemy who no longer remembers what it’s like to be human.

Set against the backdrop of a brilliantly realized apocalyptic world, love somehow finds a way to survive. But what happens when the one you’d die for becomes the one who could destroy you?

Red Hill grabs you from page one and doesn’t let go until its stunning conclusion. This is #1 New York Times bestselling author Jamie McGuire at her unforgettable best.

The Promise of Amazing By: Robin Constantine 

Goodreads Summary:

Wren Caswell is average. Ranked in the middle of her class at Sacred Heart, she’s not popular, but not a social misfit. Wren is the quiet, “good” girl who's always done what she's supposed to—only now in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change, but doesn’t know how.

Grayson Barrett was the king of St. Gabe’s. Star of the lacrosse team, top of his class, on a fast track to a brilliant future—until he was expelled for being a “term paper pimp.” Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change, but doesn’t know how. 

One fateful night their paths cross when Wren, working at her family’s Arthurian-themed catering hall, performs the Heimlich on Gray as he chokes on a cocktail weenie, saving his life literally and figuratively. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are—and falling in love.

Cinders and Sapphires  (At Someton #1)  By: Leila Rasheed
Goodreads Summary:

One house, two worlds...

Rose Cliffe has never met a young lady like her new mistress. Clever, rich, and beautiful, Ada Averley treats Rose as an equal. And Rose could use a friend. Especially now that she, at barely sixteen, has risen to the position of ladies’ maid. Rose knows she should be grateful to have a place at a house like Somerton. Still, she can’t help but wonder what her life might have been had she been born a lady, like Ada.

For the first time in a decade, the Averleys have returned to Somerton, their majestic ancestral estate. But terrible scandal has followed Ada’s beloved father all the way from India. Now Ada finds herself torn between her own happiness and her family’s honor. Only she has the power to restore the Averley name—but it would mean giving up her one true love . . . someone she could never persuade her father to accept.

Sumptuous and enticing, the first novel in the At Somerton series introduces two worlds, utterly different yet entangled, where ruthless ambition, forbidden attraction, and unspoken dreams are hidden behind dutiful smiles and glittering jewels. All those secrets are waiting . . . at Somerton

Waiting On Wednesday!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, that highlights upcoming book releases that everyone is waiting on.

This weeks selection is:

Title: The Lonesome Young
Author: Lucy Connors
Published: April 8th, 2014
Goodreads Summary:

Get swept away in the first book of the sensational romantic drama that is Romeo & Juliet meets Justified.

WHAT HAPPENS when the teenage heirs of two bitterly FEUDING FAMILIES can’t stay away from each other?

The Rhodales and the Whitfields have been sworn enemies for close on a hundred years, with a whole slew of adulterous affairs, financial backstabbing, and blackmailing that’s escalated the rivalry to its current state of tense ceasefire.


And now a meth lab explosion in rural Whitfield County is set to reignite the feud more viciously than ever before. Especially when the toxic fire that results throws together two unlikely spectators—proper good girl Victoria Whitfield, exiled from boarding school after her father’s real estate business melts down in disgrace, and town motorcycle rebel Mickey Rhodale, too late as always to thwart his older brothers’ dangerous drug deals.

Victoria and Mickey are about to find out the most passionate romances are the forbidden ones.

. . . ON A POWDER KEG FULL OF PENT-UP DESIRE, risk-taking daredevilry, and the desperate actions that erupt when a generation of teens inherits nothing but hate.

My Thoughts:

I really like the cover for this one althought, for some reason I really get a dirty dancing vibe from it but, I like it. The summary sounds pretty interesting and I am ready for some passionate romance.
