Mary's older sister, Gwen, has royally screwed up her life.
Not only is Gwen pregnant at seventeen, but she's also decided to marry The Creep who knocked her up.

Now Mary is powerless to stop her family from imploding. Her parents are freaking out, and to top it off The Creep has a gross fascination with Mary while Gwen enjoys teasing her to tears for sport.

Despite her brother's advice to shut up, Mary can't keep her trap closed and manages to piss off Mom so much it comes to blows.

Mary doesn't know what to do, and all her attempts to get help are rejected. When she finally plans her escape, she fails to consider how it could destroy them all.




*MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS*
First of all.. Don't you just love the cover?! I absolutely fell in love with it the moment I saw it! And I was glad to notice this isn't book with just a pretty cover, but with amazing story inside.
This author has definitely interesting style of writing; we get to read about the time before Mary ran away and time after that.

This is Mary's story. She's only twelve, but she's suffering. Her big sister, Gwen, rules the household. She tortures Mary and emotionally blackmails their parents. Everyone's on edge and Mary gets the most of it. Time after time people tell her to just shut up.
Mary's family is poor, since her father lost his job. That probably would be tolerable if only their family wasn't so disfunctional emotionally.
In the past, Gwen was a normal, happy kid, until something happened. She tried to tell her parents about it, but they didn't believe her. That was the turning point.
After that Gwen has been bitter and unhappy and she's testing the limits nonstop. She has an awful boyfriend, who gets her pregnant time after time. Yeah, he really is a creep. Especially when he shows some sick interest in Mary, who's only 12! And it's pretty obvious Gwen notices this too, why else would she act so jealous and mean when ever she caughts The Creep and Mary hanging together?

This really is a sad story. There's bunch of unhappy and twisted people just living their lives, without thinking the consequences. Mary gets the blame most of the time, even though she's just a kid.
In the end, Mary's parents stand up and try to fix things by standing up to Gwen, but is it too little, too late?
They can't really blame Gwen for everything, either. They let Gwen rebel and do what ever she wants, but they still were the parents. Gwen got pregnant when she was 17. She was just a kid, too. A kid who would do anything to get the attention she craves, but you can only blame the parents for letting things get so out of hands. And a 17 year old really shouldn't have to make that big decisions! Her parents should've stand up a long time before she got pregnant. But when the parents really aren't involved in their childrens lives, things happen.

I was really glad when things got better for Mary. Though I'm pretty sure things may get harder at times, I'm sure she can handle them. She survived from years of bullying, so she can survive from anything. And she really was one of those characters you wish all the happiness world can give.

Nightshade (Nightshade #1) by Andrea Cremer

Ordained Blog Tour + Giveaway (INT)!





Ordained

Source: From author for review

Normally, the school creates the hunters - not the monsters.

Abby Sorrensten likes to play rough. Ripping the horns off the foreheads of demons, manipulating lightning and setting things on fire with the flick of your wrist can give you a serious rush.
So she probably wasn’t the best choice for the Order’s experimental training program. Thirteen years of isolation, lack of affection and a bruised and broken body from horrendous training sessions creates more than just an exceptional fighter.

It creates an evil within - an evil responsible for several deaths the night she left.

Two hundred years later Abby resurfaces as the very thing the Order trained her to kill: a vampire.

A mythical demon has set his sights on the school and only the ordained hunter has the powers to face it. Unbeknownst to the Order, Abby’s their precious ordained one and their only chance for survival.

As much as she would love to leave them hanging, she’s not willing to risk the life of Emily, a fellow friend and hunter also fed up with the organization.

But for Abby, locking herself away in a fortress with angry descendents of those she killed causes suspicions and tensions to run high. Abby must learn the demon’s weaknesses for battle before the Order learns hers.




*MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS*
Ordained is a book about vampires, but it really isn't your typical vampire story. Our main character is Abby, who is somewhat lunatic, if you wanna put it nicely. She definitely holds a grudge against the Order, but you can't really blame her, since the Order raised her to be a hunter in the most extreme ways. You could really call an experiment gone wrong.
Little do they know she's the one who holds the key to their fate.



As mentioned, Abby is our main character. She's really complexed and if it wasn't for her husband, she'd probably be on a killing spree in a blink of an eye. The Order raised her to hunt vampires, but after living over two hundred years, she doesn't stop there, but hunts also demons. And as you probably guessed, she's vampire herself. There's even more to her than that, but I don't want to spoil it for you. Let's just say her parents weren't exactly ordinary either.
Abby definitely is an interesting character, but she wasn't really my favorite.

Because my favorite is Emily! I actually thought at first Emily is the main character. I'm not sure why I made that assumption. Guess I just fell in love with her the second I met her. She has this fierce nature and she's stubborn and loyal and she's just so passionate. I suppose those are the qualities I appreciate in people.
I was warned this book wouldn't be one of those romance-filled books, but I couldn't help hoping that Emily would meet someone. Especially when Abby's married to Noel, it just seems unfair! Pretty twisted logic there, but what can you do!

Then there's the Order. They're training vampire hunters, but there's something so off about them! This book paints them as the bad guy, and I think that's pretty fair. And there was so many questions left open in the end. Especially the question.. there's only few hunters, why not train them properly and why not send them out in groups?!

I was quite surprised when I noticed the story was told from several point of views. I have to admit, it took me a while to really get into it. I was actually half way through the book until I finally got it.
Before that I felt kind of distant to the story and the characters, but then the action really started and I couldn't stop reading. And there really is a lot of action and that's probably why I had so much trouble to focus in the story. I usually prefer books concentrated on people's thoughts and emotions, and want to know every little detail behind their actions. But in the end I did manage to get lost in the story mainly because some of the secrets were revealed and there's even more action!
There's also some funny moments, and since I really appreciate a good laugh, I enjoyed the book even more.

So, whether you're an action lover or an emotion dweller (it definitely is a word!), you definitely should check this out!


There will be lots of giveaways, since Devon will be giving away paperbacks, ebooks and signed bookmarks. So make sure to check out the Ordained Blog Tour page! And I got one of the ebooks to pass on!

Book Depository

Once you’ve seen, you can’t unsee.
Everything changes when you’ve looked at the world through . . .

ANGEL EYES

Brielle’s a ballerina who went to the city to chase her dreams and found tragedy instead. She’s come home to shabby little Stratus, Oregon, to live with her grief and her guilt . . . and the incredible, numbing cold she can’t seem to shake.

Jake’s the new guy at school. The boy next door with burning hands and an unbelievable gift that targets him for corruption.

Something more than fate has brought them together. An evil bigger than both of them lurks in the shadows nearby, hiding in plain sight.

Two angels stand guard, unsure what’s going to happen. And a beauty brighter than Jake or Brielle has ever seen is calling them to join the battle in a realm where all human choices start.

A realm that only angels and demons — and Brielle — can perceive.




*MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS*
I saw this on NetGalley and since there's angels and demons involved, I just had to read it! Aaaand I was like yay when reading it. Until I was about halfway through and it was just.. nay.

Our main character is Brielle, a ballerina/model who's just lost her best friend and moves back home to live with her dad.
Everything's the same in her hometown, except there's a new guy, Jake. Brielle realizes Jake really isn't like everyone else and soon both's secrets start to unravel.

I'll start with the first half of the book. Brielle comes to her hometown and you're almost immediately pulled inside the story. What is this huge secret Brielle is hiding? We know it's about her best friend, who died, and Brielle blames herself. That's pretty common, but it seems like Brielle really did something and is actually guilty of something.
Then we meet Jake, who seems like a fun guy. He's relaxed and outgoing and you just have to like him. But there's something weird about him, with his hot hands and guardian Canaan.
There's some really funny moments and it's hard to stop reading! All the mysteries just takes a hold of you, and Brielle's and Jake's relationship just sweeps you off your feet.
Jake really makes Brielle open up and even though this is a book about angels and demons, the spotlight is in Brielle and Jake.

Then everything went to h*ll.

I've read many books about angels and demons and they've been great. Angels and demons has been part of the same mythological world as vampires, werewolves, you name it.
And that's what I love! Everything is possible. Especially when author manages to create a whole new storyworld and characters and bring out their original point of view. There might have been a little religion somewhere in the story, especially when angels involved, but those books have been open minded and not preached. There may have been some involment with some gods, but again, without preachy.

I thought this would be one of those books. But then I was proven so, so wrong. I had read first half of the book and was so excited! But then the preaching started and I felt ambushed.
It took me week to finish this book, because I just didn't want to keep reading. As soon as the whole Jesus-preaching started, I wanted to throw the book away and forget about it. I was so convinced I would love this book to the end, so the disappointment was overwhelming. I expected something original and a whole new world, but all I got was the same old things church tells to everyone.
I was also little put off when Jake tells Brielle that one day he'll propose to her. Okay, so now he's promised to marry you some day, so now you can start making out, maybe even get to first or even to second base? Because otherwise it would be so bad to make out with someone. Sure.
I may have been able to keep reading with straight face, but when there was this scene where Jake preaches about his god for like five pages, I just wanted to torch the book. That would have been great opportunity to come up with your own thoughts, but no, author decided it was best to repeat the same old stuff. And if only there had been some logic in it, but no.

So, you can read this, but I only recommend reading the first half of the book, since that was the only enjoyable part. And I would've given one cupcake, but since the start was great, I was forced to give two.

Galen, a Syrena prince, searches land for a girl he's heard can communicate with fish.


It’s while Emma is on vacation at the beach that she meets Galen.

Although their connection is immediate and powerful, Galen's not fully convinced that Emma's the one he's been looking for.

That is, until a deadly encounter with a shark proves that Emma and her Gift may be the only thing that can save his kingdom.

He needs her help - no matter what the risk.





*MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS*

I smack into him as if shoved from behind. He doesn't budge, not an inch. Just holds my shoulders and waits. Maybe he's waiting for me to find my balance. Maybe he's waiting for me to gather my pride. I hope he's got all day.

I hear people passing on the boardwalk and imagine them staring. Best-case scenario, they think I know this guy, that we're hugging.
Worst-case scenario, they saw me totter like an intoxicated walrus into this complete stranger because I was looking down for a place to park our beach stuff.

Either way, he knows what happened. He knows my cheek is plastered to his bare chest. And there is definite humiliation waiting when I get around to looking up at him.

Sounds like a great start, right? It took me a while to form a picture of this scene in my head, but after I managed to do that, I had to laugh out a little. And seriously, it doesn't get easier for Emma!
Especially when the guy in the scene no. 1 moves to same place with her and for some weird reason starts in her school, too!
Galen's convinced Emma has "the gift", that she can communicate with the fish. They become quite close, but there's just one problem.. If Emma really has the gift, she's suppose to marry Galen's brother.

After the funny start, things get quite gruesome, when shark attacks Emma's best friend. And the best friend dies.
Galen's convinced Emma's a mermaid - sorry, syrena - but when she doesn't change during the shark attack, he's baffled. So he follows her to her hometown. Which is quite creepy and stalker-like. If you want to think things realistically. But since this is a book, you don't have to! And don't, 'cause otherwise you'll start feeling like Galen's a chauvinistic stalker.






Galen's pretty annoying sometimes, if you don't like that "I'm-man-and-tell-what-you-can-do"- stuff. IRL, I don't, and have had quite a few battles with hubby about that subject (yeah, he's wise enough and doesn't tell me what to do..), since I'm maybe even overly sensitive about it.
But I'm an escapist and everything's possible in books. I just get some guilty pleasure about that kind of male characters. Maybe he did went little overboard in occasions, like attacking other guys when you're jealouse, but I still didn't hate him ;)

Emma's a quite odd character, maybe? I don't really know how to describe her! She's suppose to be this sweet and cute and shy little girl, but it's pretty hard to picture her that way! Because she does act sometimes quite.. umh.. b*tchy. And she attacked Galen's sister! That was the WTH- moment of the book. But I do like when she's teasing Galen!

Then there's the whole "I-like-you-but-you-have-to-marry-my-brother-for-the-greater-good"- thing.. I do like how it was an obstacle on Emma's and Galens' way, but.. it was pretty extreme! I would've been okay with some smaller obstacle, like a lovetriangle. It sort of was, yes, but I can't really appreciate it, when there's no feelings involved.

It may sound like I hated this book, but I actually enjoyed it a lot, believe it or not!
Because somehow the things I just complained about are also the things I enjoyed. Not the beatings, but the whole idea behind it. The jealousy, deception, heartache.. You know, my usual guilty pleasures ;)

If there hadn't been violence, this probably would have received at least four and a half cupcakes! But it was pretty great as it was, and definitely a mermaid story worth reading!

Waiting on Wednesday #28

Hosted by Breaking the Spine!






Team Human by Justine Larbalestier, Sarah Rees Brennan

Expected publication July 3rd 2012


Just because Mel lives in New Whitby, a city founded by vampires, doesn’t mean she knows any of the blood-drinking undead personally.

They stay in their part of town; she says in hers.

Until the day a vampire shows up at her high school.
Worse yet, her best friend, Cathy, seems to be falling in love with him.

It’s up to Mel to save Cathy from a mistake she might regret for all eternity!

On top of trying to help Cathy (whether she wants it or not), Mel is investigating a mysterious disappearance for another friend and discovering the attractions of a certain vampire wannabe.

Combine all this with a cranky vampire cop, a number of unlikely romantic entanglements, and the occasional zombie, and soon Mel is hip-deep in an adventure that is equal parts hilarious and touching.

I don't do dangerous.

Smart, ├╝ber-careful, ordinary Samantha — that's me.

But I just couldn't pass up a surprise kiss from my number one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me.. something strange.

Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It's like part of me is missing — and I don't know if I can get it back.

Then there's Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he's keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he's what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me.

But something terrifying is closing in, and the one chance Bishop and I have to stop it means losing everything I ever wanted and embracing the darkness inside me.




*MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS*
Like with everyone else, the cover was the first thing I noticed. It's just amazing! Even the Elvis-hair. So, of course I had to see if the story was as good as the cover, and I was thrilled to find amazing story inside amazing covers!

We get straight to action when Sam is approached by her longtime crush. And he doesn't hold back! That's when Sam gets the most intriguing kiss ever. Though it's not such a good thing, cause that's when she losts her soul. Wasn't worth it, right?
Not long after that, Sam meets Bishop. A crazy streetkid, or that's what she thinks at first. Not long after we'll find out there's demons and angels involved, and that's never a good omen!

I really liked Sam as a character. She's genuine and loyal and still has something dark inside her. Though I must admit that I was occasionally annoyed by her saintness. You can be good without being naive. But it wasn't that bad, and I do admit that I'm hard to please! Sometimes I call female lead heartless, sometimes whiny and stupid. Sam was pretty well in balance, so I still was able to enjoy her part in the story.
I was little put off by the fact that everyone thinks Sam is something special. Okay, maybe not ordinary people, but every single supernatural she meets is like "Oooh, you so special!" the minute they see her. After a while it got kind of old, and I started to think "yeah, we got it, you're freaking special. Get over it!!".

Then there's the crazy, yet so hot, streetkid. Who isn't actually a streetkid, and since there's angels and demons involved.. Well, try guessing which he is ;)
Anyhow, I did like Bishop's (that's the crazy dude) character, but sometimes he just was missing.. character. Yeah. He's one of those stoic warriors, so guess that's traditional or something. But he's a fine guy, I guess.
Though I didn't really get the whole destined-to-be-together-thing with Sam and Bishop. You know, the mysteriuos connection which gives Bishop some sanity and makes them so drawn to each others. We'll probably find out the reason for this at some point, but it still bothers me a bit. Yeah, I love it, but they don't even know each other.
Nearly forgot that Bishop lost some points in the end of the book, when we'll find out the reason why he became an angel (or a demon, you don't know that yet!).

My favorite secondary character was without doubt Kraven! And there was some hint about a lovetriangle, and I actually wish Kraven gets the girl!
Because, like I mentioned earlier, Bishop did lack some character, when Kraven has twice as much. He's snarky and sarcastic and all evil, but actually quite a puppy and you just wanna cuddle him and let him sleep in your bed and.. *drooool* Yeah, I may have a thing for him.

This was definitely an entertaining read and it did have a little twist of its own, so it wasn't a replay of Hush, hush. I especially enjoyed the idea of angels and demons joining their forces! I know, that was a secret I wanted to keep, but it was one of this books original twists, so I couldn't hide it ;)
Hope you'll get your copy soon and start reading ASAP!

Huge thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin for providing a reviewcopy!





Musing Mondays #24

By Should Be Reading!


















This week's musing asks…

What is the longest book you have ever read? How long did it take you to read it?




I could change the question from "ever" to "lately", because I seriously can't remember every book I've ever read :/ Since I've added my books to Goodreads only for a year, there's 27 years I can't remember..!

But one of the longest books I've read is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix with 870 pages.
I know it's not that long, but I seriously can't remember the books I read 10 years ago when I had my "I'm such a smart teenager, look how big my book is!"- period..

And it took me day or two to read it.

Source: Bought from Amazon

Book Depository

One choice can transform you — or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves — and herself — while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.




*MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS*
Obviously, I got excited with Divergent (read the review here) so I couldn't wait to get my hands on Insurgent! *grin* And I'm happy to tell I wasn't disappointed!

Insurgent continues where Divergent left. Tris is somewhat on the run and everything is in chaos. And you would think that since we know who the bad guy is, it's gonna be an easy ride. Well, not exactly.. And you would think it's obvious who's the friend and who's the foe, but again, no!
Tris and pals will be travelling alot and thanks to that, we'll get to meet people from Amity, Candor, Erudite and Factionless.





At one point, I liked this more than Divergent. I especially liked the part where Tris is held as a captive. Call me sadist if you like, I just really liked that part for some reason!
But then I was getting pretty annoyed because of the fighting (by Tris and Four). Believe me, I love good fights, especially when there's a third wheel involved (and when I'm not doing the fighting), but they were fighting over nothing! Over and over again! It just wasn't that believable. There was some sweet moments that I liked, but those were pretty shortly described, which was a shame, since I love the details.

Tris is her usual self, and she just isn't my favorite person. She makes some pretty extreme choices and you're just like.. what the hell are you doing?? I do like her little better after reading Insurgent, but she still seems quite, you know, emotionless and cold. I'd like to see her as a damsel in distress more often.
Luckily, we get to see some of that in Insurgent. And Peter is involved! I'm really starting to like that asshat! And now I just hope we'll get a lovetriangle which Peter is part of!! Call me crazy.


Many people told me Insurgent has more action than Divergent, and they were right. And I was convinced that I'll hate Insurgent because of that. But I was proven wrong; Divergent did have action, but that was mostly just Dauntles acting crazy. But in Divergent all the action is for a cause. And apparently I like that kind of action, just didn't realize it before. Oh, the things you learn about yourself when reading!
Beside action, book is also filled with lies and betrayal. And it ends with a huge cliffhanger, which why you just have to read the third book!
Despite my doubts, I really enjoyed this book and can recommend it to everyone who's not afraid of some action!





I'm back!

Well, I've been back for few days now. But holidays aren't really my thing, because I'm always exhausted after those, that's why I've been sleeping for few days! But I promise, today I'll actually write something again!

Though I have to skip TBR Intervention this week, I read only netgalleys this week so I kind of just forgot about my TBR Intervention books.. :/ But next week! :)

June 03, 2012

Short hiatus!


I'll be gone a little while, since right about now (Sunday evening in Finland) I'm on airport and heading to Helsinki! And what I will be doing there?

I'm gonna see Metallica, yay! And Machine Head! Happy day! After that I'll probably just shop for two days and come back Wednesday. So see you soon! :)

Cover Reveal: The Collector by Victoria Scott




The Collector (Dante Walker #1) by Victoria Scott

Expected publication March 2013


He makes good girls...bad.

Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence has made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple, weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.

Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:

Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within 10 days.

Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky, Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect—he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector, and uncover emotions deeply buried.


So, what do you think? :)
