Waiting On Wednesday

                                                            This Weeks Pick:

                                                    The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook

                                                    Release Date: December 5, 2012
Sadie can’t wait to get away from her backwards small town, her delusional mom, her jailbird dad, and the tiny trailer where she was raised…even though leaving those things behind also means leaving Brendan. Sadie wants a better life, and she has been working steadily toward it, one con at a time.
But when Sadie’s mother wipes out Sadie’s savings, her escape plan is suddenly gone. She needs to come up with a lot of cash—and fast—or she’ll be stuck in this town forever.
With Brendan’s help, she devises a plan—the ultimate con—to get the money. But the more lies Sadie spins, the more she starts falling for her own hoax…and perhaps for the wrong boy. Sadie wanted to change her life, but she wasn't prepared to have it flipped upside down by her own deception. With her future at stake and her heart on the line, suddenly it seems like she has a lot more than just money to lose....

I have loved every book by Eileen Cook so I am definetly looking foward to her next book.

This does sound like a familar plot but I will still read it since I have loved her other books.

My thoughts on Delirium and Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

They say that the cure for Love will make me happy and safe forever. And I’ve always believed them. Until now. Now everything has changed. Now, I’d rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie.

I’m pushing aside
the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana
and my old school,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke?

I am totally unsure about this series. I love the concept of the series, but something about actually reading them gets to me. I am not sure if it was not executed right for me or it the characters. I mean banning love is such a good concept. love is such a big deal in today's society. Everybody strives for love, so what if you love was banned. I have never been in love but I hope one day do be in love.

I think the characters were a issue of mine. Lena annoyed me. She seemed to complain and not see the world in how she should. Hanna was just a bad friend and also seemed to complain a ot. The boys in both annoyed me. I mainly didn't like them.

The plot flowed nicely but something was off to me. I really I am sure. Maybe it is because I am not a big fan of this type of novel. Don't get me wrong, I did like the books, but something was not right to me. I would tell my friends to read the novels and the next book when it come out next year. This is not a hate review just a I am not quite so sure about the novels but I do like them.

This is really short but it has been a while since I wrote a review.

Hopefully I follow through with my promise this time

So. I have been thinking I have been neglecting my blog for about the last 2ish or so years. So I want to now promise to myself I will post once a week in both July and June. I am about to begin my senior year in high school and I want my senior to be good and one way to do so is improving my blog and working on it once again. I will hopefully be able to do memes and some reviews. This is about the third time I have said this so hopefully third times a charm.
