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.

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.

SNEAK PEEKS:

Three Wishes by J.A.Armitage

Her future was mapped out…

She would one day be queen…

When a curse was cast, trapping Jini in an old lamp, her life ended along with everyone she had ever known and loved. Centuries of darkness passed and then a young man made a wish.

He wanted to be the Sultan.

So did she.

The only problem? There already was a Sultan and his mysterious son had already laid claim to the throne

Read this powerful new rendition of the age old classic, Aladdin, where things are not as they seem and magic might not be enough to save them all.

The Djinn Curse By Margo Ryerkerk

How far will you go to reclaim your freedom?

My name is Roxelana, and my human life was stolen from me.

Turned by force into a djinn, I’ve waited for 100 years for a shot at freedom.

My current assignment in Istanbul presents an opportunity to break the connection to my lamp and escape my eternal slavery. There’s just one problem. Doing so means sacrificing the sultan prince to the king of djinns. I shouldn’t care about the prince, but I can’t stop myself. He has a pull on me I can’t explain. Coupled with his kindness and the care he shows his people, I’m in deep trouble.

When push comes to shove, who will I choose? Him or myself?

Filled with adventure, love, magic, and a strong heroine, this clean YA Fairy Tale is the perfect read!

If you like K.M Shea, Melanie Cellier, and Kiera Cass, you’ll love this!

Granting Wishes (A Once Upon a Curse Prequel) by Kaitlyn Davis

She’s about to discover a whole new world…

“His words come back to me—magic is the law. I guess I’m making my own set of rules.”

Alanna thought rock climbing in Yosemite National Park would be the trip of a lifetime. Until an earthquake strikes and she finds herself plummeting to her death. But instead of slamming into the forest floor, Alanna drops into a secret underground cave where she’s confronted by the impossible—magic.

A mysterious man named Erick uses incredible powers to save her life, then tells her that his magical world has collided with earth, merging the two together. Alanna writes it off as crazy, until he shows her a vision of her brother being dragged down a sandy cobblestone street in chains. Crazy or not, she’ll do anything to save him.

As Alanna and Erick team up to rescue her brother from the clutches of a decrepit sorcerer king, fate intervenes in the form of a handsome prince. Alanna doesn’t know who to trust, but in this foreign land, flying solo just might get her killed…

Don’t miss GRANTING WISHES, a fantasy romance from bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis that reimagines the classic fairy tale of Aladdin.

Sultana of Amethyst Sands by Emma Savant

A beautiful genie craves her freedom. A handsome prince longs to heal his kingdom. And a con artist named Aladdah has big plans for them all.

Between theft, sleight of hand, and her indentured servitude to a powerful magician, Aladdah has always managed to survive the brutal streets of Citron. But survival isn’t enough for a woman of Aladdah’s ambition. She craves more—more food, more power, and more magic than her master has seen fit to teach her.

When she demands a greater challenge, her master sends her on a mission into an enchanted cavern beneath the desert sands. There, in an abandoned garden glittering with the lights of precious jewels, Aladdah discovers a genie whose power and beauty are matched only by her determination to escape the bonds of her servitude.

But the genie is bound by her magic lamp, subject to Aladdah’s every wish, and it’s an opportunity no self-respecting street rat could resist. Aladdah forms a plan to use the genie to destroy the sultan and establish herself as a new ruler who will turn the savage inequality of Citron on its head.

But the sultan has many protectors, from his court magicians to the beautiful, idealistic son who infuriates and enchants Aladdah in equal measure. Her genie fights her at every turn. And her old master will not be dismissed so easily, not when he has a plan to gain power the likes of which the kingdoms have never seen.

Sultana of Amethyst Sands is a romantic, fast-paced adventure through the sands of a faraway kingdom of magic, genies, and wishes come true.
