Dystopian March #1: Under the Never Sky


Aria has lived her whole life in the protected dome of Reverie. Her entire world confined to its spaces, she's never thought to dream of what lies beyond its doors. So when her mother goes missing, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland long enough to find her are slim.
Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He's searching for someone too. He's also wild - a savage - but might be her best hope at staying alive.
If they can survive, they are each other's best hope for finding answers.

This is the first book part of my Dystopian Month. It was suppose to be Cinder, but I don't to do the review without my copy (which was lent to a friend).

Anyway, I really liked this book. Dystopians always have that alluring pull on me. The fact that they take place in a futuristic society might be why. I love it how they give you an idea of what could happen. (Globle Warming ISN'T a myth. The hole in the ozone isn't there for it's health.) Like in the book, we could end up living in Pods with the outside being a baren waste land with freaky storms threatening to kill us all. It's possible, with technology at the rate it's going.

So, in the book, Aria, our heroine, is tossed out of her pod because of information she has on the head honcho's son, Soren, who's a really SOB. He's the definition of a spoiled child. Anyway, without her Smarteye (which is basically a computer that can manipulate your brain to think you are somewhere else and are feeling this certain thing), she's nothing. She revolved around her Smarteye and the Pods. Now, she's out in the "Death Shop" and is ready to die.

This is were our hero comes in. Perry, or Peregrine, got kicked out of his tribe because they believe, mostly their Blood Lord, his brother, Vale, brought the Dwellers (Pod livers) to come and take Talon, his nephew. Well, he's on a quest to save him, and he needs Aria to do it so he can get in and get him. Well, there a few complications.

1: The Coven. Man eating people that go around and.....well, eat people.
2: The Smarteye Perry stole the night Soren attacked Aria doesnt' work.
3: To get to the guy who can fix it, it takes a while to get there. A while as in at least a week.

Well, not to go into too much detail, Perry and Aria meet up with Roar, a friend of Perry, who tells them not so great news. This information isn't forgotten; for in the end, Perry makes a discovery that not only rocks his tribe, but him personally. If I had learned this, I'd be shocked too.

Anyway, plot is awesome. Usually with a dystopian it is. But in this one, I feel that the romance lacked a little. Why? Well, Aria and Perry totally hate each in the beginning and only stay together so Perry can get Talon and Aria can get home. Later on, when they are traveling, Perry, who can smell and hear well, starts to see her as a girl instead of a Mole (a.k.a., Dweller). This causes him to start developing feeling for her, and later falling for her in a short period of time (Gah). Aria, for her, it kinda just clicks on. In most of the book, she shows she cares if he's okay, a little bit of crush, and indifference. In the scene where they finally admitt they like each other a bit more than friends, we finally see them inimate with each other. There's a little bit before that, but not much. It's mostly Perry that we see really fall for Aria. Well, rendering to her. (I really like how that sounds in the book. A unique way of saying 'falling in love'.) Wish we had a bit more from Aria's view.

Speaking of views, I love it how it would switch back and forth between Aria's and Perry's view. Books that do that, I believe, are better books because it's not just one person's eyes we're looking through, but two. We get two perspectives on a situation that can be taken different ways. Plus, it's easier to read the reactions of both of our heroine and hero.

To leave you guys on a little cliffhanger, heres on person who I wish we had more information on in the book: Cinder. Cinder is this little boy who follows the group around. Now, unlike most Outsiders, he doesn't have super hearing, sight, taste, etc. For some reason, he has a different power. And I believe it has to do with the Aether.

I loved this book. It really drew me in and held my attention. Made me smile, made me laugh, made me angry. If anyone is looking for a good book, this is it. The sequel is defintely on my wishlist. :D

Future: Through the Never Sky

Dialogue taken from page 230.
  "Roar leaned across the table and smiled at her seductively, his dark hair falling into his eye. 'When you say everything happens in the Realms, do you mean everything?'
  "Aria laughed nervously. 'Yes. Especially that. There are no risks in the Realms.'
  "Roar's smile widened. 'You smiply think it and it happens? And it actually feels real?'
  "'Why are we talking about this?'
  "'I need a Smarteye,' he said.
  "Perry rolled his eyes. 'There's no way it's the same.'"

When I read that I cracked up laughing.


I love the colors and the trees in the back. Kinda wild. The only thing stopping it from being a 5 is the girl. She kinda looks bored to me. That or too serious, but with determination.
As much as I hate cliffhangers, this one had a good ending.

*Bought myself.

Contemporary March #11: Five Flavors of Dumb


The Challenge:
 Piper has one month to get the rock band Dumb a paying gig.
The Deal:
If she does it, Piper will become the band's manager and get her share of the profits.
The Catch:
How can Piper possibly manage one egomaniacal pretty boy, one talentless piece of eye candy, one crush, one silent rocker, and one angry girl? And how can she do it when she's deaf?
Piper can't hear Dumb's music, but with growing self-confidence, a budding romance, and a new understanding of the decision her family made to buy a cochlear implant for her deaf baby sister, she discovers her own inner rock star and what it truly means to be a flavor of Dumb.

Review: First thing that hooked me was the fact that Piper, our main character, is deaf. You read me--deaf. I've never read a book about a deaf person before.

The fact that a deaf person was going to manage an up-in-coming rock band is what really got me. I was thinking "How is that going to work?" "Is she going to sign the whole time?" "Can she talk or does she just sign?"

Well, turns out Piper, besides signing, has hearing aids and is an expert at reading lips. This makes it a bit easier for her to hear/understand people. If I wrote this character, I wouldn't have given her the ability to lip read. It might have made the book a bit more interesting with her challenge to understand people and the band.
The name of the band I think is appropriate. Dumb. That's just what the band is in the beginning. They don't listen well to each other. One member is in it jsut for one of the other members. Another in it to get a girl (not the one in the band). And later the new members---one's in it for Piper, and the other is in it because she was aked to be but she can't play.

Well, first things first--a bit more about the plot.

So, Piper's parents raid her college fund to by her baby sister some implants so she can hear since her deafness is more serious than Piper's. What makes it worse is that only one of her parents is working while the other stays home and takes care of things (and it's not the mom). Well, after an argument with the lead of the band Dumb, she ends up the manager and has to get them a gig in one month. If she does, they split the money, which she now needs.

Well, on their way to rockstardom, everyone in the book changes in a way.
  • Piper: the valedictorian of the class. Loved by the teachers, good grades. No trouble. Well, this band changes her. She discovers taht she's sick of being a good girl, and want to live life before she goes off to college. She gets new friends and changes her hair to something she would have never done. She takes risk that she never would have dreamed of doing, and let's out everything she thinks about her nonsupportive dad and the fact they used her college fund for implants.
  • Tash: or Natasha. Picture her with carigo pants, green hair, and a guitar. Originally, she joined the band to try to get closer to Will, Josh's younger brother. And she really hates it when drop dead gorgous Kallie joins the band, thinking she'll steal Will's attention. But later, she starts to realize Will is just into music, not her, and starts to appreciate music. And she starts getting over Will. Thank God! (because there's someone else that likes her).
  • Kallie: one of those girls that is popular but with a hidden background. Her dad and mom divorced, and dad can't pay child support, so she and her mom live in an apartment and she wears last season's clothes. But that's not the point. At first, she though Josh actually wanted her in the band because she could play the guitar (and she does; just not that good). But later she discovers he only asked her because he thought that would give him brownie points when he wanted to hookup with her. Gross. Then on, she tries to find a way to quit, but later says she'll stay and gets a backbone and stands up for herself.
  • Will: Quiet, cares only for music. Not much to him at first, but he does coume out and speaks his mind about how Josh is treating Kallie and that he needs to leave the band because it's not Kallie that sucks, it's him [Josh].
  • Josh: jerk. Josh the Jerk. Well, in the beginning, I thought that he actually wanted to go through with teh band and have Kallie in it so they could be better. But nope. When she proves she sucks, he wants her out. Not only that, but the other reason is because she rejected him. Then he keeps trying to get her to quit or get her kicked out, but Karma's a bitch. hehehe
  • Ed: sweet, smart, drum playing Ed. His joining the band is kinda an involuntary action. He never had intended to join until Piper asked if he would. And the whole reason why he did (and why he's in chess club) is to get closer to Piper. He's even taking Sign Language classes for her. But like her, he was a good student with a promising band career. But the band lets him let go and live.
  • Finn: not actually part of the band but does later. He's Piper's little brother and signs as well as she does, but feels like a slave and her shadow because he helps interpret for her and doesn't feel like his own person. But later he starts feeling like himself and helps out the girls with their chords. Plus, he's a poker genius. :D

Future: stand alone

Five Flavors of Dumb is one of themost creative contempoary novels I"ve ever read. It is a must read for everyone.

ReVamped: Review + Giveaway!


Goodreads: A simple mission turned deadly.
Nineteen-year-old vampire Dawn has led a sheltered life within the confines of her father’s presidential headquarters. Upon being sent on a mission to revamp four goofy misfits into guardians of a peaceful little town of Angel Creek, Dawn believes that all her dreams have finally come true. What starts off as a simple task, turns into something unexpected, changing Dawn’s life forever and leading the action-loving, thrill-seeking vampire teen on a path of mystery, danger and intrigue.
When a human girl is kidnapped by a group of rogue vamps, Dawn discovers that there is more going on in Angel Creek than meets the eye. And it all connects to Ethan, the cute newcomer who seems too perfect to be true, Sebastian, the mysterious vampire with a turbulent past, and even Dawn herself. Dawn must not only succeed in revamping the troubled recruits, but must also prevent the vampire race from being overtaken by a malevolent villain who has a strange and obsessive fascination with her. As threat escalates, romance blooms, and ghosts from her past begin to surface, Dawn is sure of only one thing: her life will never be the same.

Review: Okay, so this one is a dystopian vampire novel. Yeah, that's right. A VAMPIRE DYSTOPIAN novel. :D
So, to start off this review, I want to say thanks to the author, Ada Adams, for asking me to review her book.

Thank You!

Anyway, I liked this book. I've never read a vampric dystopian. (Hopefully I'll have read two by the end of May.) It was interesting.

(In no particular order)

+ The opening. At first, I didn't like it because it sounded like something out of a cheesy contemporary novel. But later I realized that it was giving me hints on who and what is going to happen or who's going to show up.

+ I like the vampire president and the Scarlett House. The world in the book seems like there are two countries in one---human and vampire.

+ Opening scene in chapter one was amazing. Not going to elaborate much, but it had me thinking one thing when really something else was going on.

+ The kickass main character Dawn. Nice, strong, smart, determined, and a kickass fighter. For someone that's been sheltered all her life, she does fairly well on her own.

+ The boys in the book are different from other YA boys. I love that both of them have secrets instead of just one. Both are 'the new guy in town' instead of just one. Smart and strong. And the names, love them: Sebastian and Ethan.

+ Plot is different, along with the setting. Angel Creek is this out of the way town with not much to it. Few stores and a school. Library and a little diner. Cute, but at night it sounds creepy. Anyway, the town was founded by one of the character's family a long time ago. That is one reason that is part of the plot. In the plot is a plot for revenge. An old friend of the founding family is extremely mad at the family for something they didn't give to him a long time ago.
But that's not all. Dawn is there on a mission to train new guardians of the town since the old ones go off into the world to do TV related things. Dawn happens to be related to a person that the evil dude doesn't like, and he plans a bit of revenge on her.

+ In the book, there are two types of vampires. The Made and The Born. Dawn is one of The Born. The Born are ones that are created from another Born. By having a Born, you can stop your aging process and never die. If not, then you will slowly die. The Made are regular vampires.

+ Since this is set in the future, I like it that Vampires have come out and people love them. TV shows and special food and everything were created for them.

+ Awesome weapons. No question. After all, Dawn's fluent in all of them. :D

+ The plot twist with the drug, Vampriciol. That's right. Vampriciol. Love the name.

+ Question: can you clone a vampire? What do you thing about that? Think hard.
(In no particular order)

- MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!: In the book, it tells us that the bad guy was put into a coffin or a boat (can't remember) with dynamite into a lake to die. What I want to know is how he survived. Wished that was more elaborated.

- In my opinion, could use a bit more romance.

-Some things reminded me of Twilight (just the first book):
  • The small town
  • The Love Triangle
  • The white house in the middle of forest
  • The girl not wanting to go to the party (Bella vs. Dawn)
  • Werewolves were involved
  • The parent in the book was the dad.
There was a few more but not much. Despite this, don't let that stop you from reading the book.


- Hannah is okay. Talkative. Nice. Just a regular overexcited girl. One with, and I quote, "verbal-diarrhea".

- Brooke: status-airhead vampire cheerleader that goes around applying to high schools and becoming cheerleader and on a mission to be prom queen. One of the new guardians. At least she changes a bit and uses her brain.

- Hunter: drinker/druggie turned around and turned. Kinda doesn't care, but soon he starts too after what happens and when he lays his eyes on the weapons.

- Seth: shy kid, recently turned by Brooke. Loves video games. Good with computers. Can hack into anything once he gets started. Turns to be an okay vampire.

- Sophie: like Seth, but into books. Is very old. Her best friend turned her. Starts gainning confidence throughout the book.

-Sebastian: jerk with a hidden soft side. More than meets the eye.

-Ethan: sweet, kind bartender. Also, more than meets the eye.

ReVamped is one of a kind with it's futuristic vampire society packed with drama and twists.


Look at that necklace. It's so pretty! And the purple is awesome.

Could have been a bit better.
(Wish it was the other guy)

Contemporary March #10: The Sky is Everywhere


Goodreads: Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, plays second clarinet and spends her time tucked safely and happily in the shadow of her fiery older sister, Bailey. But when Bailey dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life - and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby was Bailey's boyfriend; his grief mirrors Lennie's own. Joe is the new boy in town, a transplant from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent. For Lennie, they're the sun and the moon; one boy takes her out of her sorrow, the other comforts her in it. But just like their celestial counterparts, they can't collide without the whole wide world exploding.
This remarkable debut is perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen, Deb Caletti, and Francesca Lia Block. Just as much a celebration of love as it is a portrait of loss, Lennie's struggle to sort her own melody out of the noise around her is always honest, often hilarious, and ultimately unforgettable.

Review: Okay, I will admit, I wanted to read this book because I liked the cover, the original cover, not the one above. The one above is the paperback copy, a.k.a., the one I have. I mean, I like the paperback one, love the colors, but not a fan of the girl on the front.

Anyway, here are the postives and negatives of this book. (Note: these are just in random order. No sequence.)

+ I actually felt the emotions of the characters. Lennie's and her family's grieve and pain. The anger of Joe when he caugh Lennie kissing Toby, Bailey's (dead sister) boyfriend.

- For some reason, when I read contemporary and it's very emotional, I start to think dark/negative/suicidal thoughts. Don't know why. At lunch the other day I was really depressed.

+ Joe is a total French American cutie.

- When he was hurt, he went out with the bitch Rachel.

- Lennie lost her sister.

+ She gets through it through her music.

+ Joe plays every instrument under the sun.

+ Joe has two cute older brothers.

- He was heartbroken before. :(

- Bailey left behind her boyfriend.

- They were suppose to get married and she was pregnant.

-Mom left her two girls with Grandma because she didn't have it in her to take care of the girls herself.

+ Girls got along fine without her.

- Boyfriend is extremely sad and turns to Lennie for comfort.

- Lennie become attracted to him and feels guilty for it.

- Lennie feels guilty that she's living and falling in love while her sister is dead.

+ She writes sweet and deep poems throughout the book.

+ Those poems help Joe realize he made a big mistake.

+ There's a happy ending.

- Lennie has a low self-esteem.

+ After coming to terms with her sister being dead, she moves on and falls in love.

- Sex plays a signifcant part in the book.

+ Instead of mushy gooshy crap, it's real life and how sex is portrayed in it.

So you see, this book as it's pros and it's cons. Normally, with a book with its plot, I would have been bored by page 100 since the plot is kinda classic, but it was the emotions and hot French boy that kept me going. :D

Future: Stand alone.

I really like it so far.

The Drake Chronicles Special

So, let's begin our journey through books 1-3.


On Solange’s sixteenth birthday, she is going to wake up dead. As if that’s not bad enough, she also has to outwit her seven overprotective older brothers, avoid the politics involved with being the only daughter born to an ancient vampire dynasty, and elude Kieran Black—agent of an anti-vampire league who is searching for his father’s killer and is intent on staking Solange and her entire family.
Luckily she has her own secret weapon—her human best friend Lucy—who is willing to defend Solange’s right to a normal life, whether she’s being smothered by her well-intentioned brothers or abducted by a power-hungry queen. Two unlikely alliances are formed in a race to save Solange’s eternal life—Lucy and Solange’s brother Nicholas, and Solange and Kieran Black—in a dual romance that is guaranteed to jump start any romance-lover’s heart.
Even fans of the genre who’ve seen it all will find a fresh read with kick-butt characters and family dynamics that ring true for all brothers and sisters—vampire or otherwise.

Review: I love Lucy. Not the show, the character. She's my favorite heroine out of the entire series. Funny, brave, smart, and kickass fighter. Kinda like me. :)
Anyway, to the plot and overall stuff.
I love it that the Drakes' children and some children of other families can have children born human and later around sixteen they turn into vampire. I thought that was cool and creative. The bloodchange sounds like a bitch though. Anyway, girls being rare is awesome too. Usually when I read things like this, the boy is the rare born. Also, Solange and all the creepers that give her gifts because she's going through the change and her scent drives men insane. I love it and the wanna-be queen, Lady Natasha, crazy. She wants her dead because of some prophecy. Gotta love those.
Now the romance is something I really liked in this book, mostly between Nick and Lucy than Sol and Kieran, though I did like it. You'll learn about it later.

It's been centuries since Isabeau St. Croix barely survived the French Revolution. Now she's made her way back to the living and she must face the ultimate test by confronting the evil British lord who left her for dead the day she turned into a vampire. That's if she can control her affection for Logan Drake, a vampire whose bite is as sweet as the revenge she seeks.
The clans are gathering for Helena's royal coronation as the next vampire queen, and new alliances are beginning to form now that the old rifts of Lady Natasha's reign have started to heal. But with a new common enemy, Leander Montmarte—a vicious leader who hopes to force Solange to marry him and usurp the power of the throne for himself—the clans must stand together to preserve the peace he threatens to destroy.
This second adventure in the Drake Chronicles—told from both Logan's and Isabeau's perspectives—has all the same butt-kicking action, heart-pounding romances and snarky humor that readers loved in Hearts at Stake, as well as exciting new revelations about the vampire dynasties to keep readers coming back for more.

Review: Now, in this book, Helena, the mom of the Drakes, is going through the possess of becoming Queen of the Vamps and signing treaties along with her husband, Liam. As a sign of respect, they invite Isabeau, handmaiden to the leader of The Hounds, to their house to stay. Well, soon, her sire, Greyhound (i think that's his name) starts tormenting her with momentos of the past and soon she starts figuring out that it's him and wants revenge.
Mean while, while all this is happening, she and Logan fall in love. And they're perfect together since they both love France and French things, they speak it, and they are old fashioned. Logan dresses like a priate a lot. LOVE THEM!

Hunter Wild is the youngest in a long line of elite vampire hunters, a legacy that is both a blessing and a curse at the secret Helios-Ra Academy, where she excels at just about everything. Thanks to her friendship with Kieran Black, Hunter receives a special invitation to attend the coronation of Helena Drake, and for the first time, she sees the difference between vampires that must be hunted and vampires that can become friends—or even more. When students at the academy fall victim to a mysterious illness, Hunter suspects they are under attack from within. She will need someone she can trust to help her save the future of Helios-Ra . . . help that shockingly comes in the form of Quinn Drake, a drop-dead gorgeous vampire. Who said senior year would be easy?

Review: Hunter + Vampire + Old Tradional Grandpa = disaster.
Honestly, it does. So, in this one, Quinn is our main vamp. In this book, he helps Hunter, our heroine, out when students start getting sick and turning into Hel-Blar. Throughout this entire thing, Quinn also helps identify what's in the wacked-up pills some of the students are taking and soon he and Hunter start dating. Grandpa in the book thinks all vamps should be dead, and is dead set on Hunter NOT dating Quinn. This little fact plays a big part in Hunter's decision to date Quinn. That's all I'm going to say. No spoilers for you. :D

The negative side of these books:


As much as it's used and a somewhat good element in many YA books, I am a firm believer that love takes time to develop. In the books, the romance usually developes over a day or so. The only exception is that Nick started to have feelings for Lucy a long time ago before he got up the nerve to ask her out, let alone kiss her. I'm fine with that. The rest, maybe it's that internal mating thing most paranormal creatures have. :)

Overall, The Drake Chronicles are a kickass series. I can't wait to get Bleeding Hearts & Blood Moon.

The Next Step

    So, when I learned that Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvey was free on BN, I was like "TURN ON FASTER YOU STUPID IPOD!"
Now, I'd already read the book by this point in middle school (i think). LOVED IT back then. Then I read the next one, Blood Feud, from the library a little while later and LOVED IT, and then I stopped because the next one, Out for Blood, wasn't out.
    Later, at the Border's blow out sale, I found Out for Blood and added it to my huge pile of books. I bought a lot that day. :D
    Well, after getting H.A.S., I decided to reread it. Then after debating a week on whether or not to buy it, I bought and reread Blood Feud.
    Then after My Life Undecided, I finished Out for Blood  (which I had started eariler). Now I know I wasn't reading a contemporary and I'm going to say this once and only once:


       Well, I have too many for only one month (evidenced that Februaray is over) and 2: some are more fo rsummer, so I'll read them then.
     So, taking The Next Step, Dystopian March/April will start soon with Cinder. :D


Like the button?

So, to leave off, I have several reviews to write; four to be excat.
The one for The Drake Chronicles will be up soon. :D
Can't wait to enter Dystopia with you!
