Review/Giveaway: Riverdale The Day Before By: Micol Ostow



40151523The Synopsis:

Based on the massively successful CW show, Riverdale, this prequel novel explores what the gang was doing before Season One.

Why did Jughead and Archie have a falling out? What did Veronica’s life look like in the Big Apple? And how long has Betty really been in love with Archie?

Told from multiple points of view, your favorite characters tell their story their way.


My Review:

Being a fan of the tv show, even though I haven’t seen the latest season yet I was super excited to read this book! I’ve always wondered what the characters lives were like before the show.

I really recommend this book for fans who have already watched the show because there is some spoilers of things that go down in the show. If you don’t mind spoilers this book is a great introduction.

The book is written in POV chapters and includes diary entries, text messages and emails between the characters. I really enjoyed reading it this way and I think it made it easier to picture what was happening. Betty’s chapters are mostly diary entries, but it reads like a regular book so don’t worry if you think it’s a little odd.

If you have seen the first season of Riverdale you will know most of the information in this book. It mostly just goes deeper into things of course of what happened the day before!

Betty is in California the whole time and I was really surprised she was in LA for a internship. It didn’t seem very Betty, but I think Betty felt the same way and how everything turns out it makes sense. Except this date of hers, I wonder whatever happened to him?

Veronica is in New York the whole time and we learn just how oblivious of things she really is. I personally hate Veronica because of her personality, but the author got her on point in this book and that’s great.

Not much goes on for Archie and Jughead back in Riverdale except for the friendship change and Archie sneaking around with his teacher. You really get to feel the emotions Archie and especially Jughead feels. Jughead’s chapters were probably my favorite, but that’s probably because he is my favorite character!

Jason and Cheryl were in this book, but not much new information was given. Maybe because we will learn more on the show. But I wish there was some scenes of Jason at home and what was happening there. Polly also pops up a few times in the book too and I liked that.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. It was such a smooth read I read it all in a day and a half. Could have been a day if I had more time. So Riverdale fans get on this!

Review/Giveaway: Realm of Ruin by Hannah West


The Synopsis:

Valory’s power is different . . . it’s dangerous, unruly, and destructive. But can she channel it to crush a cunning enemy and save the realm from chaos? Welcome to Nissera, land of three kingdoms and home to spectacular magic. A century after her legendary ancestors overcame a bloodthirsty tyrant, seventeen-year-old Valory Braiosa attends a training academy for elicromancers, immortal beings with magical gifts. Yet Valory’s immense power seems impossible to tame, and she faces imprisonment by the Nisseran authorities. Then a forbidden resurrection spell awakens a long-dormant evil, and Valory may be the only one who can vanquish this terrifying villain. Together with a band of allies—including an old friend; a haughty princess; and a mysterious, handsome stranger—Valory must learn to harness her power and fight back.


My Review:

Realm of Ruins is the companion novel to her first book Kingdom of Ash and Briars and part of the Nissera Chronicles series. You totally don’t need to read the first book to read this one! There are some references to events in the distant past that might spoil parts of the first book, but otherwise you could totally follow this story on its own since it reads like a standalone.

Our main character in this story is Valory, she is a descendant from the main character from Kingdom of Ash and Briars. As Valory is forced to leave her home, she finds out that she isn’t really safe anywhere she goes. The first half of the book is a little slower in pace, but it really kicks up when things start to roll!

There are tons of characters in this book! West did a fantastic job at bringing them all together and keeping unique to there own personalities so they all can stand out on there own.

Of course being a pretty hefty looking book so much exciting things happen in this story! Valory’s growth and determination are at the center of the entire story as she goes from being a girl who wants power and to fit  to being someone who has grown into what she has.

I definitely recommend this book to any and all fantasy and fairytale lovers that love a great world building! It’s totally a five star book!

Review/Giveaway:This Lie Will Kill You By Chelsea Pitcher


Tell the truth. Or face the consequences. Clue meets Riverdale in this page-turning thriller that exposes the lies five teens tell about a deadly night one year ago. One year ago, there was a party. At the party, someone died. Five teens each played a part and up until now, no one has told the truth. But tonight, the five survivors arrive at an isolated mansion in the hills, expecting to compete in a contest with a $50,000 grand prize. Of course…some things are too good to be true. They were each so desperate for the prize, they didn’t question the odd, rather exclusive invitation until it was too late. Now, they realize they’ve been lured together by a person bent on revenge, a person who will stop at nothing to uncover what actually happened on that deadly night, one year ago. Five arrived, but not all can leave. Will the truth set them free?
Or will their lies destroy them all?



This book had me hooked by page one! Pitcher’s writing is creepy and suspenseful! Although it isn’t like a typical horror book this book is definitely a thriller. I’ve never been a fan of porcelain dolls and Pitcher definitely did a fantastic job on making them give me the chills. I loved the beautiful use of metaphors, it made the imagery much more interesting and in a way, way more significant. Even though this story is taken place in just one night and we are giving some flashbacks, I came to know the characters quite well! I love guessing who did what in stories and this book definitely threw me for some loops a few times. There were moments on my lunch break at work that I struggled to tear my eyes from the book not wanting to loose the build up and the thrill. I loved all the conniving, the vengeance, the regrets, the hate, the love and friendship in this story! Pitcher did a fantastic job at bringing it all together! I definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone who likes a good mystery thriller!

Reviews/Giveaway: This Mortal Coil & This Cruel Design By Emily Suvada



Book One:

33876440The Synopsis:

Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius. That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own. When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race. Now Cat must decide who she can trust: The soldier with secrets of his own? The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs? In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself?

My Review:

Holy Moly this is definitely a 5 star read!

If you love Sci-Fi/Dystopians, like me you are sure to love this book just as much as I do! I have read quite alot of Dystopian book series and this one is by far one of the most unique. This book is definitely on my top reads for the year! The world building and even the virus itself I felt was so very original. The way that the people with the virus reacted was something I’d never read before. The temporary immunity even had me by surprise. Although it was a little twisted, I found that it made the story even more intriguing.

This book I think had such a great pace and was definitely a wild ride all through out. It had a fantastic plot line and some really interesting twists. Some of them I saw coming, but some of them I did not. Especially that one at the end!!! It was mind blowing!

There is a love triangle in this book, but I am a sucker for a good love triangle so I didn’t mind at all. I think Emily Suvada did a fantastic job at mapping out the story and the main plot while putting in a little bit of the romance into the mix.

I was definitely fully absorbed into this book and I couldn’t wait to pick up the second book, This Cruel Design. I totally recommend this to all YA Sci-Fi Dystopian lovers!


Book 2:

38316465The Synopsis:

Cat thought the Hydra epidemic was over, but when new cases pop up, Cat must team up with an enemy to fix the vaccine before the virus spirals out of control in this thrilling sequel to This Mortal Coil, which New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman says “redefines ‘unputdownable.’” The nightmare of the outbreak is finally over, but Cat’s fight has only just begun. Exhausted, wounded, and reeling from revelations that have shaken her to her core, Cat is at a breaking point. Camped in the woods with Cole and Leoben, she’s working day and night, desperate to find a way to stop Lachlan’s plan to reprogram humanity. But she’s failing—Cat can’t even control her newly regrown panel, and try as she might to ignore them, she keeps seeing glitching visions from her past everywhere she turns. When news arrives that the Hydra virus might not be as dead as they’d thought, the group is pushed into an uneasy alliance with Cartaxus to hunt down Lachlan and fix the vaccine. Their search takes them to Entropia, a city of genehackers hidden deep in the desert that could also hold the answers about Cat’s past that she’s been searching for. But when confronted with lies and betrayals, Cat is forced to question everything she knows and everyone she trusts. And while Lachlan is always two steps ahead, the biggest threat to Cat may be the secrets buried in her own mind.


My Review:

My gosh! Emily Suvada did it again and she definitely deserves to be on my must buy author list!

This Cruel Design, picks up right where This Mortal Coil left off. I really didn’t think the second book could top the first, but it’s just as epic! Just like the first book, I just couldn’t put it down! I was so very glad that all my questions from, This Mortal Coil was answered!

The plot and pacing was just as amazing as the first book and I really liked the direction This Cruel Design took. I loved the new character editions and of course the old ones as well. The storyline between Cat and Cole continued to progress and I’m really curious to see where their relationship goes in the next book.

The ending of the book is packed full of action, which I’ve come to notice Emily Suvada is really good at creating. Sides were chosen, and not everyone made it out. Which leaves me eagerly anticipating the next book. Which I do hope there is very soon!

Review: Royal Return(Royal Replicas #4) By: Michael Pierce

38115547The Synopsis:

After awaking in the palace, Victoria learns firsthand what’s been happening to her sisters—and the horrors they’ve had to endure. Now locked within her own body, she’s merely a passenger, forced to ride along as the doctors’ sinister plot unfolds. How many people—including the ones she loves most—will have to die by her hand?
Meanwhile, Prince Byron is the number one suspect in the Queen’s murder, making his efforts to save Victoria and return the crown to Princess Amelia far more dangerous. Is he willing to risk everything to get back the girl he loves?Join Victoria and Byron as they fight for the fate of the Kingdom in the EPIC final installment of the Royal Replicas series!


My Review:

If you haven’t already seen my reviews for the first three books in this series, here they are Review: Royal Threat (Royal Replicas #3) by Michael Pierce ,Review: Royal Captives (Royal Replicas #2) by Micheal Pierce ,Review: Royal Replicas by Michael Pierce

I just wanted to start off by saying that I am sad to see this series end. I am so very grateful to have been a part of Micheal Pierce’s review team and to have read this epic journey of a story. Even though I am sad for the end, Micheal Pierce did end it beautifully.

Of course it was so good I read it all in one sitting. The final book is packed full of action, lots of battling and fighting. It had me on edge the whole time, hoping that my favorite characters wouldn’t get killed off. Even though everyones world is falling apart all the characters really try to stick together and ultimately help Victoria and the Princess. The AI was definitely interesting and a different twist to this series and it had a couple of new characters I really liked as well. But Micheal Pierce has always been great at making likeable characters, even the evil ones.

I definitely recommend this series if you love dystopian, action, a little bit of steampunk feel and some romance. Also if you don’t mind lots of violence. You will love this series and Victoria’s journey.

Review: Ruined by M.C. Frank


The Synopsis:

The duke of Ashton sits at the Opera at Vauxhall Gardens, bored out of his mind, and plans murder. He curses the day that brought the little governess, destitute and sad, at his door eight months ago, to upset his careless if a bit meaningless existence.
How could he have guessed the terrible, evil secrets she was hiding? And now that he knows all, the truth appears wilder, even more despicable than even he could have imagined. He hadn’t counted on losing his heart to her, of course, but he did. What he doesn’t know is that a tendril of the shadows of madness and sin that followed Beatrice to his door is still out there, looking for something to devour.
The only one who can save him from the darkness is the girl herself, but he knows he’ll never see her again. He who once prided himself on his indifference to other human beings, feels his chest constrict with pain every time he even thinks of her. Beatrice, smart, gentle, kind-hearted, lovely. Ruined.


My Review:

Ruined is a Jane Eyre retelling, but even though I have not read Jane Eyre I extremely enjoyed this story. This will be my fourth book I read by M.C. Frank and once again I was not disappointed.  It was written beautifully and I felt immediately drawn into that era. The style of writing was perfect, it felt like I was reading a true classic.

I loved all the characters, even the bad ones. I loved to hate them. The main character, Beatrice is a extremely strong young women, even though she might not think so. She hides a extremely dark secret from her past, which is shown through some pretty dark flashbacks. The darkness in Beatrice’s story might be difficult for some readers, but I don’t mind because he made you feel for Beatrice and understand her actions more. Dominic dark and brooding and I pictured as handsome. I found him oh so swoon worthy! Beatrice brought out the best in Dominic and it was so adorable to watch. Their relationship had me on edge the whole time. Friendship on and off and bickering like a old married couple and teasing one another I just wanted them to be happily ever after!
I loved how it was both in Dominic and Beatrice POV. It made it easier to see both of what they were feeling and had me even more connected to them. It was smoothly paced and never dull. Full of romance,mystery and action. I loved it! If you love classics, modern classics, retellings, romances, contemporaries and just a great read I recommend this to you.

Review: Burning Doors(The Extraction List #2) By: Renee N. Meland


Burning Doors (The Extraction List Book 2) by [Meland, Renee N.]The Synopsis:

Cain Foley committed his first murder before he could even drive a car. Not that he would’ve had anywhere to drive to. When he was fifteen, America was one of the poorest countries in the world, and its’ citizens took their hatred of that fact out on each other through gangs and violence. Children that were barely tall enough for carnival rides peppered the streets selling drugs (or themselves) so they could buy their next meal.

Every night on the news, Cain watched as an angelic blonde woman who lost her own child swore she’d end it. She assaulted America’s televisions with praise for the Parental Morality Law: a set of rules that spells out exactly what it takes to be a parent in the eyes of the government, and the consequences of breaking those rules. He prayed every night that she would come and rescue him before his father took his belt off again. Before she could save him, Cain faced a fatal choice: fight back or die on the basement floor. He chose life. Now on the run, he finds himself being hunted by a police officer with his own special brand of torture. Before he can save even a handful of children who have been swept up in the gang life, he must first cover up not one, but two murders: his father’s, and one committed by a teenage madam who is either the love of his life, or his final undoing. As he feels himself being pushed further and further to the edge, he realizes that surviving his father was just the beginning.


My Review:

This is the second book in the Extraction List series and it’s all bout Cane Foley! The dark and mysterious boy that helped out Riley in the last book! If you haven’t already be sure to check out my review of it here Review: The Extraction List By Renee N. Meland

I was pretty excited to have a book all about Cane, because he’s definitely my favorite character of the series. It was one action packed ride that showed Cain’s transformation to the Cain we know in the previous book. While it was a tragic story I really enjoyed getting the history and seeing how he became the badass we know him as. It wasn’t very easy, he went through so so much. Renee Meland definitely squeezed in a long rough ride of a story in such a small book and still it flowed quickly and smoothly. It is full of twists and turns and will have you always on edge.

I was also really glad we got to see how Cain and Jordan became friends and the new characters from his past were also really great. All written extremely well into the dark world that Meland created, but yet it is so realistic. 

I loved this book I highly recommend it and the whole series especially if you love Dystopians!

Review: Wingbound by Heather Trim


The Synopsis:

Ledger is supposed to fear and despise the Sky People of Ellery. When an Ellerian girl named Alouette with beautiful, white wings sneaks into his village, everything changes. With his village at war with the winged people who live on the floating island that circles their world, he does the unthinkable: he befriends her.

In Ledger’s seventeenth harvest, Ellery returns empty. The Sky People are gone, Alouette is missing, and Ledger must make a difficult choice—continue life as usual in the blacksmith workshop or board the island against the elders’ wishes and find her.

From debut author Heather Trim comes a vibrant fantasy where following the rules isn’t always the right thing to do when you were born to be the exception.


My Review:

Wingbound is seriously unlike anything I’ve read before. I mostly read Fantasy so that is saying something. After reading the synopsis I was extremely excited to dive into the book! It had me at sky people and wings. I really like how in the beginning we grow up with Ledger a little bit, through the time he met Alouette and the present. I looked forward to Alouette’s visits each year. Don’t worry though that didn’t take up much time in the story. Heather Trim did a excellent job at telling an amazing story in only around 230 pages and it all flowed nicely.

When Ledger finally decides to go find Alouette it was one of my favorite parts because even Ledger is surprised by who will come with him to help find Alouette! It was very heartwarming and when everyone bands together it was so fun to see them go off on there adventure.

I’m in love with Ellery! Heather Trim created such a beautiful,mystical, unique world. Ellery is unlike any other and so are the people of Ellery. Even though this story is obviously fantasy, everything was so clear and realistic. Trim did a great job at blending the human and Ellerian world together. She just did a great job with everything!

I really liked Ledger because he’s not your usual male protagonist. He’s just so down to earth and I loved that he didn’t really care what society thought and he wasn’t afraid to do what he thought was right. Ledger also goes through ALOT to find Alouette and I respect that. Alouette was not in most of the book, but after the beginning it is not the last we see of her. The ending definitely was a shocking twist for me and I was very surprised. I really hope there will be a sequel soon because I’d love to know more. And I do hope that the ending isn’t going the way I think it is next. I definitely ship Ledger and Alouette. ;]

I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun and quick read. And fans of Fantasy will definitely enjoy this. I think it falls under YA, but I think younger and older readers will enjoy this story as well!

Review/Giveaway:Active Memory(Mirador #3) By Dan Wells

tour banner.png

The Synopsis:

Active Memory (Mirador #3)

by Dan Wells
Publisher: Blazer + Bray
Release Date: February 13, 2018

Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction
 photo addtogoodreadssmall_zpsa2a6cf28.png photo B6096376-6C81-4465-8935-CE890C777EB9-1855-000001A1E900B890_zps5affbed6.jpg

36277567Even in a world where technology connects everyone’s minds, it would seem that some secrets can still remain hidden.

For all the mysteries teen hacker Marisa Carneseca has solved, one has always eluded her: When she was two years old, she was in a car accident in which she lost her arm and a mob boss’s wife, Zenaida de Maldonado, lost her life. No one can tell her what she was doing in that car, or how it led to the feud between the Carnesecas and the Maldonados.

The secrets from the past rise violently to the surface when Zenaida’s freshly severed hand shows up at the scene of a gangland shooting. If Zenaida is—or was—still alive, it means there’s even more about Marisa’s past that she doesn’t know.

And when everyone from Los Angeles gangs to the world’s largest genetic engineering firms becomes involved in the case, it’s clear there’s more happening under the surface than anyone cares to admit.

The truth is out there, and Marisa will have to thread together lost friends, corporate assassins, a gang lord’s digital brain, and what might be a literal ghost from the past in order to find it.


My Review:

“The past is in the past, It can’t hurt you unless you let it. So we’re not going to let it.”

This book was amazing, just like the other two before it! I really love Dan Wells writing style and can’t wait to check out his other series!

Here’s my reviews for the first two books if you haven’t already seen them.
Review: Bluescreen (Mirador #1) By: Dan Wells 
Review: Ones and Zeros (Mirador #2) By: Dan Wells

Marisa and The Cherry Dogs are back at it again hacking their way through the world wide web. This time Marisa is finally finding out things that we have been wondering since book one. Why was she in the car with Omar’s Mom fifteen years ago!

I definitely didn’t see the truth arising by the police finding Zenaida de Maldonado’s FRESH severed hand at a crime scene. So Marisa and the gang are on a mission to find out did Zenaida really die or not fifteen years ago. While on their mission they uncover even more secrets connecting her and Zenaida to the world’s most powerful genetic engineering firm.

Along the way Marisa gets a little help from the Mob and her brothers gang which got pretty interesting. Which also leads to more of Omar, which Marisa might start to have feelings for!? What about Alain! We won’t know because sadly he isn’t in this one, but I have a feeling he’d be in feature books. I really hope so! Please tell me there’s more books! I’d love to read more of this world!

“He stopped, and turned toward her. His eyes were as dark as onyx, and she was suddenly struck by the way he looked at her – intense and probing, like was looking at her and into her and through her all at once.”

There’s also some new obstacles
“And I definitely don’t want her to tangle with me.” “The Wonder Mantis”, said Sahara. “The WoMantis,” sad Marisa. ” The Mantissassin,” said Sahara.”
With those names you can only imagine what to expect from that person.

The ending was bittersweet, but I think perfect.

“Be yourself, because it’s obviously working well for you, but don’t be yourself so hard that you forget to be the kind of self that other people need.”
