Rey

I sold my soul to save my family–and lost everything because of it. Now I’m a slave to the underworld, a fake hunter with half-demon blood.

I’ve been sent on a special assassination mission. If I fail, it means my life. But protecting Erin soon becomes more important than any other task, and there’s something about her that tells me her arrival at the academy will change everything …

The Chosen was an action-packed fantasy filled with suspense! I loved the world building! I thought this was a very unique read! Did I mention dinosaurs? I really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it! I can’t wait to read book 2!

Favorite Quotes 

This had been planned. The water, certainly. Maybe even the disk around the corpse’s neck. It was like a test…a puzzle. And they were the guinea pigs.

Perhaps this was what all dreams felt like until you woke up from them.

It can’t be a dream. Maybe a nightmare.

To be alone, in the midst of all this strangeness. Unthinkable.

All Eyes on Us

by Kit Frick

Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books

Release Date: June 4th 2019

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Thriller

 

Synopsis:

 

PRIVATE NUMBER: Wouldn’t you look better without a cheater on your arm?

AMANDA: Who is this?

 

The daughter of small town social climbers, Amanda Kelly is deeply invested in her boyfriend, real estate heir Carter Shaw. He’s kind, ambitious, the town golden boy—but he’s far from perfect. Because behind Amanda’s back, Carter is also dating Rosalie.

 

PRIVATE NUMBER: I’m watching you, Sweetheart.

ROSALIE: Who IS this?

 

Rosalie Bell is fighting to remain true to herself and her girlfriend—while concealing her identity from her Christian fundamentalist parents. After years spent in and out of conversion “therapy,” her own safety is her top priority. But maintaining a fake, straight relationship is killing her from the inside.

 

When an anonymous texter ropes Amanda and Rosalie into a bid to take Carter down, the girls become collateral damage—and unlikely allies in a fight to unmask their stalker before Private uproots their lives.

PRIVATE NUMBER: You shouldn’t have ignored me. Now look what you made me do…

My Review

This was a thriller full of twists and plenty of secrets that will keep you reading until the very last page! This is written in a dual point of view. I didn’t mind this. The pacing was fast which I like in a thriller. There was definitely plenty of suspense and a creepy vibe with the text messages.  I do want to warn people that this book does talk about serious topics. I think the author handles it well but I still like to give warnings.

Favorite Quotes

And I’m not public Amanda, either: beautiful, sharp-tongued, admired feared. Queen of the senior class. For these seven minutes, I don’t have to be any of those girls. I can just be me.

You may be the prettiest girl in school but things are going to get real ugly if you don’t start listening to me.

I get under the covers without brushing my teeth, then stare up at the ceiling and follow the lines where the paint is cracked. Just one of the many home repairs we never got around to making. If I look at it one way, it’s a network, a road map. Endless paths. But when I look again, it’s just a broken web. My life on display, all the threads torn apart.

May 2019 Wrap-Up and June TBR

Hello, everyone! Happy June 2019 because apparently I’m still stuck in 2018. If you read the new looking forward post I posted it as 2018 on the blog and twitter. I need some caffeine or a nap. Though I’m trying to stay awake to watch Taylor Swift perform at Wango Tango via Livestream. She’s not on till 1 15 am where I live. Anyway, on to the books I read in May. I read five books, three of which were graphic novels. I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump. I’m hoping I’ll read more in June.

Here’s what I read in May!

Stranger Things: The Other Side (Graphic Novel Volume 1)

Sisters of Blood and Spirit (The Sisters of Blood and Spirit, #1)

The Perfect Girlfriend

My Boyfriend Bites (My Boyfriend Is a Monster, #3)

Wrapped Up in You (My Boyfriend Is a Monster, #6)

Everything I read this month was kind of meh besides Sisters of Blood and Spirit. I’m hoping it’s because of the reading slump.

Here are the books I’m planning on reading this month!

Girls of Paper and Fire (Girls of Paper and Fire, #1)

Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns, #1)

Ayesha at Last

The Chosen (Contender, #1)

Looking Forward June 2019

Hello, everyone! Happy June! Even though I’m not sure how it is already June. I say this every month but I’m always puzzled by time. Anyway, the weather here has been hot and humid. Though I am happy summer is finally here, I’m not overly fond of the humidity. I am, however, looking forward to watermelon and ice cream. Below are the things I’m looking forward to in June!

Music

Wango Tango Live Stream is June the 1st at 8, freeform on June 7th at 8

Jonas Brothers Happiness Begins June 7th

TV

The Inbetween on NBC

I’m curious about this. It’s about a woman who communicates with the dead and helps police solve crimes. It sounds like something I’ll love. I watch a lot of true crime, law and order svu, criminal minds, etc.
