Some Books Ago: Luminous by Dawn Metealf

If you realize, every Tuesday I post about the new books I discover. So, I wanted to give a shout out to all those books published some years ago, that maybe some readers may have forgotten.


I haven't read much about this book, except that it's really fantastic and imaginative. The summary sounds really good, and the cover is so pretty!

Luminous was published on June 30th 2011 by Dutton Juvenile


 


Summary:
As reality slips and time stands still, Consuela finds herself thrust into the world of the Flow. Removed from all she loves into this shifting world overlapping our own, Consuela quickly discovers she has the power to step out of her earthly skin and cloak herself in new ones—skins made from the world around her, crafted from water, fire, air. She is joined by other teens with extraordinary abilities, bound together to safeguard a world they can affect, but where they no longer belong.

When murder threatens to undo the Flow, the Watcher charges Consuela and elusive, attractive V to stop the killer. But the psychopath who threatens her new world may also hold the only key to Consuela’s way home.

My Never-ending Booknotes: I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson



My Never-ending Booknotes is a weekly meme created by my awesome friend April @ Books 4 Juliet where we can share our favorites quotes or conversation from a book.
If you want to join, just go HERE and have fun.

This week my never-ending booknotes are from a book I still haven't read. 
The thing is, I wanted to read I'll Give You The Sun just because I LOVE the title, but then I read the summary, one review, and I saw 2 quotes that made me fall in love with the story even before I read it. 
This completely the kind of book I love to read. Check it out!


“Meeting your soul mate is like walking into a house you've been in before - you will recognize the furniture, the pictures on the wall,the books on the shelves, the contents of drawers: You could find your way around in the dark if you had to.” 

“I didn’t know you could get buried in your own silence.” 



The Book



 

GoodReads/ Amazon/ TBD

A brilliant, luminous story of first love, family, loss, and betrayal for fans of John Green, David Levithan, and Rainbow Rowell
Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways . . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else—an even more unpredictable new force in her life. The early years are Noah's story to tell. The later years are Jude's. What the twins don't realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world.

This radiant novel from the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.

ARC Review: Blackbird by Anna Carey



Blackbird 
Series: Blackbird Duology #1
Author: Anna Carey
Source: ARC provided by the Publisher. Thank you!
Summary:
This twisty, breathless cat-and-mouse thrill ride, told in the second person, follows a girl with amnesia in present-day Los Angeles who is being pursued by mysterious and terrifying assailants. 
A girl wakes up on the train tracks, a subway car barreling down on her. With only minutes to react, she hunches down and the train speeds over her. She doesn’t remember her name, where she is, or how she got there. She has a tattoo on the inside of her right wrist of a blackbird inside a box, letters and numbers printed just below: FNV02198. There is only one thing she knows for sure: people are trying to kill her. 
On the run for her life, she tries to untangle who she is and what happened to the girl she used to be. Nothing and no one are what they appear to be. But the truth is more disturbing than she ever imagined. 
The Maze Runner series meets Code Name Verity, Blackbird is relentless and action-packed, filled with surprising twists.



*****


If you like to read fan-fictions, then you must know that many of them are told in Second Person POV.
Some of them are really bad, when it comes to the writing, but they have something that you come to enjoy in the end: that you are the main character of the story.
I tell you this because when I was younger, before I started reading full-time, I used to read fan-fics and Blackbird reminds of that, and it also reminds me that not everyone can write the second person and make the readers enjoy it.  And Anna Carey exceeded in it!
I know it’s hard to get used to the Second Person Tense, but what’s amazing is that when the main character has forgotten her name, it feels even more realistic because that person is YOU!
I probably don’t make much sense. I’m just trying to say that, for me, this book worked perfectly.

Blackbird by Anna Carey is thrilling! It’s action packed and it has you on the edge of your seat until you discover every secret behind “that” girl.
I don’t know why, but Blackbird reminds me a little of Pawn by Aimee Carter (one of my favorite books of last year).
The plot is intriguing and full of suspense, you can’t really know what to expect. It’s fast-paced and thrilling!
The characters are good, but not amazing, until you realize in the end that everyone have secrets. Then, you can’t stop thinking about them.

The only thing I didn’t like about Blackbird was the romance. You see, the relationship between the main character and the boy who helps her is “open and free” I don’t remember exactly but I think they never say the world “love” and that’s okay, because I wasn’t able to connect with them, together.
And then, there was this boy of her dreams… well, I do want to know him.

Blackbird is a fresh story, with an unusual POV. This is one of the few diverse YA contemporary thrillers out there. 
Maybe the reason why  I loved it this much is because I’m use to this kind of narrators, maybe not. What I’m sure is that everyone should give it a try.
Blackbird by Anna Carey is an engaging and captivating read.

Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout *Cover Reveal!*


Holy cow, y'all! We are so excited to bring you the Cover Reveal for Jennifer L. Armentrout's WICKED! WICKED is a New Adult Paranormal Romance and is a part of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Wicked Trilogy. It is being released on December 8th, 2014. So make sure you pre-order it today!!

  Wicked

Amazon

WICKED Synopsis: 
Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans. 
Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart. Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her. But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins. 

Won:
The Treatment by Suzanne Young (thanks to Fiktshun)

Some Books Ago: Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson

If you realize, every Tuesday I post about the new books I discover. So, I wanted to give a shout out to all those books published some years ago, that maybe some readers may have forgotten.

Ultraviolet is one of the first book in my TBR list on GoodReads. I don't even know when I added it, but almost every review of my GR friends gave it 5 stars.
Ultraviolet was published on June 2nd, 2011 by Orchard


 


Summary:

Once upon a time there was a girl who was special.
This is not her story.
Unless you count the part where I killed her.


Sixteen-year-old Alison has been sectioned in a mental institute for teens, having murdered the most perfect and popular girl at school. But the case is a mystery: no body has been found, and Alison's condition is proving difficult to diagnose. Alison herself can't explain what happened: one minute she was fighting with Tori -- the next she disintegrated. Into nothing. But that's impossible. Right?
