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

banner.png

 

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: Ones and Zeros (Mirador #2) By: Dan Wells

The Synopsis:

30255941Overworld. It’s more than just the world’s most popular e-sport—for thousands of VR teams around the globe, Overworld is life. It means fame and fortune, or maybe it’s a ticket out of obscurity or poverty. If you have a connection to the internet and four friends you trust with your life, anything is possible. Marisa Carneseca is on the hunt for a mysterious hacker named Grendel when she receives word that her amateur Overworld team has been invited to Forward Motion, one of the most exclusive tournaments of the year. For Marisa, this could mean anything—a chance to finally go pro and to help her family, stuck in an LA neighborhood on the wrong side of the growing divide between the rich and the poor. But Forward Motion turns out to be more than it seems—rife with corruption, infighting, and danger—and Marisa runs headlong into Alain Bensoussan, a beautiful, dangerous underground freedom fighter who reveals to her the darker side of the forces behind the tournament. It soon becomes clear that, in this game, winning might be the only way to get out alive.

 

My Review:

“Great Holy Hand Grenades!”

The sequel to Bluescreen has surpassed it on a whole other level. Add all the Hacker action from Bluescreen with lots of gaming and one mega heist and you get Ones and Zeroes! Dan Wells really brings out the urban decay and shines a light on living in a corporate-controlled society.

This is the second of the series, but Wells gives you enough information in the beginning to understand without reading the first, but the first book was so good I recommend you start there if you haven’t already! Here’s my review for it! Review: Bluescreen (Mirador #1) By: Dan Wells

Marisa’s friend Anja gets the Cherry Dogs into an exclusive event called Forward Motion. Forward Motion is a charity event that lures the best players in the world to one place. This year, that place is Los Angeles. Which means for the first time, all five Cherry Dogs will be in the same place together! Which was pretty fun! You really got to know the characters more in this one and I really connected with Fang. We both love to stay in our shells! Of course it isn’t just going to be a reunion, Marisa and her teammates will have to risk life and limb not only to access the secrets within this powerful organization, but somehow manage to survive and win the tournament!
“The most important thing in the entire world, in the entirety of human experience, is that you can choose which kind of person you are. I want to be the kind that makes a change.”
There’s a few new characters including a terminator like man called Mr. Park who is nearly unstoppable. Mr.Park reminded me of T-1000 in the Terminator movie. Then there is Alain Bensoussan and his partner in crime Renata. I’m definitely shipping Marisa and Alain.
With a ending I didn’t think would happen, I can’t wait to read book three!
“There are people who matter, and people who don’t. There are ones, and there are zeroes.”

Review: Watchdogs By Will McIntosh

34079577The Synopsis:

Thirteen-year-old twins Vick and Tara have built an incredible machine–a loyal robotic watchdog named Daisy. But, when local crime boss Ms. Alba schemes to add Daisy to her robot army, Vick and Tara must go to great lengths to protect their prized pet. Because Daisy is more than just any robot–she’s their constant protector, and together the three make a great team. Vick and Tara are determined to stop the mob from tearing their little family apart. And they might just succeed! Sure, the evil Ms. Alba has more robot watchdogs, but none are as smart–or as faithful–as their Daisy. Plus, if things get too dangerous, Tara could always upgrade their pet. With her mechanical skills, she could make Daisy bigger, stronger, and a lot more intimidating!

 

My Review:

Even though I’m twenty-four years old I still love to read  a good Middle Grade book.
Watchdogs is definitely one of them. I enjoyed this book so much I hope there’s more to come to this Watchdog world. Will McIntosh’s writing was so enjoyable. He gave all the characters such great personalities and it was so smooth. I couldn’t put this book down, and read it in one sitting.

Action packed with heartfelt moments that had you cheering for all the right reasons. Pre-Teens and a little younger will definitely love this story, but if you like fun little adventures full of action, I recommend this to you! There’s also a lot of serious aspects in the story, I think it really shows that autism doesn’t hold people back and can make you stronger than most people. The children in this story are homeless and have gone through some tragedy, but they are all strong and I think can really inspire young minds. It even taught me a few things.

I heard this could be made into a movie or a tv-show and I think that would be awesome! The story is perfect for both. I’d personally love to see a live action movie of these Watchdogs, but I heard it could be picked up by the makers of How To Train A Dragon and you can’t go wrong with that animation!

I will definitely be checking out other books by Will McIntosh. I am already extremely excited to read his YA novel Burning Midnight!

Review: Bloodline (Spellbound Chronicles) by S.E. Maguire

35530979The Synopsis:

A dark mass slowly descended out of the star strewn sky and hovered menacingly above twenty-three and a half Vulcan Mews, Doncaster, the home of the unsuspecting Gorry family.

Two figures sauntered into view, their footsteps crunching on the gravel. They stopped across from the Gorry house and stared hard at the spectre on the roof. Almost immediately the air began to crackle with electricity. Caught in the electrical current and unable to sustain its shape or position a moment longer the black mass angrily began to disperse.

The watchers braced themselves for they knew what was to come; then moved on.

 

The Review:

Larna has been having nightmares, about things she starts to see in real life. Could they possibly not be part of her imagination? You must read to find out.

This book is part of the Middle Grade genre, but I think YA readers could still enjoy it. I did! It has quite a bit of action and time travel and you could even read it to your child! There is death so maybe smaller children shouldn’t read it, but it’s no worse than Mafusa’s death in The Lion King. So not that bad. ;]

There is lots of fantastical things and creatures in this story. Like witches,wizards,warlocks,fairys,talking animals and even part humans part animals!

Of course it’s full of lots and lots of magic! So if your a fan of young fantasy, time traveling adventures, magic and fairy tale like creatures this is for you! I enjoyed it so much I read it in one day!

I’m still reading Masked. Unfortunately I haven’t picked it up since last Wednesday. I decided to join a 40 day Harry Potter readahton of all things and try to read all 7 books in 40 days. haha. It’s day 7 and I just started Prisoner of Azkaban

 

  1. Why did you decide to pick up this book – cover or content?
    I was on MC Frank’s street team for her Dystopian Trilogy No Ordinary Star and also read her contemporary book,Lose Me and loved it! So when the opportunity aroused to read and review Ruined I just had to! Plus it sounded great! AND that cover!
  2. Who is your favorite character so far, and why?
    Definitely the Duke. He’s so dreamy and dark. haha.
  3. Will you finish this one?
    Plan to today.
  4. Finish the sentence:  This book reminds me of… (other books, movies, tv shows…)
    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I don’t know why it just does. I guess because of the classicness and the characters. There’s no zombies in Ruined though. ha
  5. What type of read is this one? (slow but interesting, cannot put it down,…)
    It keeps a pretty steady pace the whole time.

  1. Why did you decide to pick up this book – cover or content?
    Ruined – I was on MC Frank’s streer team for her Dystopian Trilogy No Ordinary Star and also read her contemporary book,Lose Me and loved it! So when the opportunity aroused to read and review Ruined I just had to! Plus it sounded great!
  2. Who is your favorite character so far, and why?
    Masked- I’m on page 170 now and some of the supers got agents. I’m really liking them! They are both so funny.
  3. Will you finish this one?
    Yup, I rarely DNF books.
  4. Finish the sentence:  This book reminds me of… (other books, movies, tv shows…)
    Well Ruined is a Jane Eyre retelling, but I haven’t read Jane Eyre, buut I’m definitely feeling the classic vibe written into it. Even though it’s a retelling it’s still set in the correct time period.
  5. What type of read is this one? (slow but interesting, cannot put it down,…)
    Masked- it’s page 170 and I’m hoping that this book picks up speed soon. They did just do their first “mission” so maybe it will.
    The previous pages basically was introducing the characters and their powers. It’s still interesting though.

My Current Reads:

 

Synopsis for Masked by J.D. Wright: Vada Lawson can’t wait to be a superhero. Born into a family with special powers, she’s been training to fight criminals and villains her whole life. But her indoctrination into the underground super community is derailed when normals start breaking out in superpowers themselves. Not trained to control their new abilities, the normals are frightened and vulnerable. Then their mutilated corpses begin turning up all over town. What the heck? Somehow, with the help—and hindrance—of an annoying newly-minted super named Orion, Vada has to stop the chaos before it destroys her and everything she holds dear…and ruins her superhero debut.


Synopsis for Burning Doors by Renee N. Meland: 
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. 


Synopsis for Noelle by Greg Kincaid:
In this fourth installment of the poignant stories of the McCray family and their lovable canines in rural Kansas, matriarch Mary Ann McCray is determined to shake up Christmas by accepting the role as Crossing Trail’s first woman Santa Claus. Mary Ann, always a bit of a rebel, is looking to offer a more progressive voice in the staunchly conservative town at Christmastime and has a few ideas up her red velvet sleeves. ( I couldn’t find a better synopsis and didn’t feel like typing the whole one from the book, but it’s about more than just Mary Ann. It’s about a few different families and of course Elle the dog!)


Now I’ll answer some questions about one or all of them!

  1. Why did you decide to pick up this book – cover or content?
    I’m reviewing Masked and Noelle, but I had the opportunity to choose Noelle from other books and I chose it hoping to get a Christmas feel and I’ve never read a book revolving around a dog before.
    Burning Doors was a gift from the Author and I loved the first book so I just had to read the second now.
  2. Who is your favorite character so far, and why?
    Masked – Nick, I really like the main character, but what can I say I’m always in search of a new book boyfriend and Nick is book boyfriend material for me. I am also hoping he’ll start to like our main character. I’m only about a quarter through so there’s still lots to happen.
    Burning Doors – Well I only finished Chapter one so far with this book, but I love Cain! He was my favorite from the first book! If you want to know more here’s a review for the first book Review: The Extraction List By Renee N. Meland
  3. Will you finish this one?
    I plan to finish all three. I’m enjoying them so far and I rarely DNF books.
  4. Finish the sentence:  This book reminds me of… (other books, movies, tv shows…)
    Masked – Sky High a Disney movie about a Superhero highschool. haha.
  5. What type of read is this one? (slow but interesting, cannot put it down,…)
    Masked – I’m about a quarter of the way through and everything has come together and is about to go down. So far it has kept a steady pace. It’s definitely interesting and fun so far.
    Burning Doors – I’ve only read Chapter one and someone has died,ranaway,saved a life and assumed a new identity so that pretty much sums up the pace.
    Noelle – It’s not what I usually read, but I like it. It deals with a lot of real life issues and I love reading about all the dogs.

October TBR!

Books I Will Definitely Be Reading!

 

Other Books I Want To Get To!

 

I’ve been working on City of Glass since August. I didn’t even get the chance to pick it up in September at all. I just have had so many books to review. I have a little less to review this month so hopefully I’ll get to finish it this month.

I’ve had my eye on Deviation for awhile now and now that I finally got it I really want to read it, but I should finish City of Glass first.

Since it’s October I’m really looking forward to reading a spooky read.
Here’s the synopsis if you’re interested:
Kat Preston doesn’t believe in ghosts. Not because she’s never seen one, but because she saw one too many. Refusing to believe is the only way to protect herself from the ghost that tried to steal her life. Kat’s disbelief keeps her safe until her junior year at McTernan Academy, when a research project for an eccentric teacher takes her to a tiny, private island off the coast of Connecticut. The site of a grisly mystery, the Isle of Acacia is no place for a girl who ignores ghosts, but the ghosts leave Kat little choice. Accompanied by her research partner, Evan Kingsley, she investigates the disappearance of Cassie Mallory and Sebastian Radcliffe on their wedding night in 1886. Evan’s scientific approach to everything leaves Kat on her own to confront a host of unbelievables: ancestral curses, powerful spells, and her strange connection to the ghosts that haunt Castle Creighton. But that’s all before Kat’s yanked through a magic portal and Evan follows her. When the two of them awaken 129 years in the past with their souls trapped inside the bodies of two wedding guests, everything changes. Together, Kat and Evan race to stop the wedding-night murders and find a way back to their own time—and their own bodies—before their souls slip away forever.

What I’ll Be Up To In October!

Review/Giveaway: The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly Ringle

33973968

The Synopsis:

Most people have no idea goblins live in the woods around the small town of Bellwater, Washington. But some are about to find out.
Skye, a young barista and artist, falls victim to a goblin curse in the forest one winter night, rendering her depressed and silenced, unable to speak of what happened. Her older sister, Livy, is at wit’s end trying to understand what’s wrong with her. Local mechanic Kit would know, but he doesn’t talk of such things: he’s the human liaison for the goblin tribe, a job he keeps secret and never wanted, thrust on him by an ancient family contract. Unaware of what’s happened to Skye, Kit starts dating Livy, trying to keep it casual to protect her from the attention of the goblins. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Kit, Skye draws his cousin Grady into the spell through an enchanted kiss in the woods, dooming Grady and Skye both to become goblins and disappear from humankind forever. It’s a midwinter night’s enchantment as Livy, the only one untainted by a spell, sets out to save them on a dangerous magical path of her own.

My Review:

This book was definitely way different from what I expected. I thought it was going to be a cute little fantasy story about Goblins. Well I was mostly wrong…It is more of a New Adult Fantasy with Goblins that actually creeped me out so much they were in my dreams the first night after reading this story. These Goblins will give you the chills. They are ruthless.

It was so disturbing what the Goblins were doing to people. This book is definitely not for people that don’t like creepy and chilling reads or a lot of romance. If you do love all those things this is perfect for you. It’s October so this would be a great read to get you into the spooky feels.

Even though the Goblins were super creepy. They were extremely sarcastic and witty, so at times they made me smile, maybe even laugh. There is even one nice goblin!

The writing was great and the town of Bellwater went well with these creepy Goblins and the elemental magic featured in this story. I also really loved the cover, after reading the story, it reminded me of the Goblins.

I think the ending was great and I loved where the author took this story and where it went. It was intriguing, fast paced, and both realistic and fantastical.

About The Author:
