Well first day was a blast hung with my friends all day which usually is only a few hours. But morning started out much later since my co blogger Stacy and I decided we wanted to sleep in even I did wanted to meet Neil Patrick Harris I still skipped it. But other than that just same old day going around at booths trying talk with publishing houses on contemporary’s that they liked that is up coming. But to say first thing in AM was unearthly by Amie Kaufman and Meagan spooner start of a new series at Disney Hyperion which is sick then from there was a lot of roaming. The things that stick out are wonder women which I give props to penguin people started lining up 2 hours in advanced and a line got started that a massed fast and it got penguin by surprise since was out of the booth but instead of penguin saying no to it they let the unofficial line become the real one. Which example at yallfest macmillian refused to do that even though was nice organized line for crown of wishes and made it a free for all stampede literally…. Only other thing that stick out was owlcrate made my day by doing a arc drop of lucky in love by kasie west and my first arc of hers 😍😍 so can’t wait to dig Into it. So another day ended only thing I was sad was my co blogger is leaving next day which won’t see till ALA. But for that evening we did food at Outback Steakhouse my fav and she met one of my best friends Kelly and had a fun time. So that was my basic day I know only thing you want to see is my book haul.
This book sat on my book case for ever and ever. I’m sad I waited so long to read it. This book is about a girl Audrey wadsworth who in secret is learning her uncles trade of being a coroner which at a time when women were only supposed to have kids, cook the food and gossip about petty things over tea with the other women of the rich. While learning this trade, slowly people are getting murdered mostly prostitutes. The thing about these murderes there extremely grousome some of the worst there country has ever seen. These are the older days which forget the year so these horrific crimes are not common slowly Audrey has determined to find out who the murder was since her, her uncle and one of her students finds the facts of things they forensics. Only thing was fully sure but page 85 I took my guess who the murderer was and i guessed right. But even with this and talking about gruesome images and as watch in your mind how Audrey is disecting the bodies I look foward to book 2. 5/5 ~~~~ JUSTIN
This book series started out with the first book absolutely loving it to second I handled it but it dragged this book was a mix of both yes it entertained me Atleast this time when there wasn’t fighting scenes since akways see the Scheming of the royals and what maven is thinking since he absolutely obsesses over mare even seen from book 2.
What I did like that was added is a few extra POV’s one ehh it was ok to see from diffrent point view but as my friend said didn’t interest her to much I didn’t as much but still cooler to have more views. But there is added one and I loved even others pov was extremely far in between.
So last touches on this can certain enemies like the king maven or even other known enemies ever change for the better or not. Find out if you read kings cage.

Gotta say I absolutely loved this book!!! I think one of the most fluffiest books I have ever read and Iv read a good amount of contemporary’s. But starts off Kate is a lonely no body that talks to her pet dragon as a friend named after a guy from a tv show. Till one day she is outside watching the football players practice and is staring at the most popular all star quarterback Mack. And all she has over wanted to do is date him. Other pov character is Cooper thru by chance over the years on summer vacation has been aquinted with Kate, and notices her staring, and walks over to chat and get talking of Mack. so work out a deal since his rowing partner is injured needs practices in exchange he will help her land her boy crush Mack and want to go to prom with her.
So some things I loved about this book is it’s sooo fluffy cute like all the quirky odd ball things Kate is in to Cooper doesn’t judge and will tolerate it and joke around and learning of relationships of characters of tv shows while Kate helps Cooper slowly organize things in his life and how to take a chill pill. The things I sometimes I’ll never understand is why does one person have to change who they are to date another person or to even get a chance and it does happen in today’s day and age. Another I said above is the pop culture references that at times mares things laugh like my own is extremely olicity from arrow which is the ship of felicity and Oliver McQueen. So hope this review helps and feel this no matter what will be extremely top book/ contempory for the year. Lasts years book was tell me three things read in April ended the year near the top.
100/5 ~~~~~~ JUSTIN
This book ahh feels so good to be back in the world of shadow falls. C.C. Has a masterful world I just love it. This book starts off where last book began with Della by accident while searching a old case thanks to a ghost coming to haunt her by accidents reopens a cold case of her dad and he is arrested for the murder. So it’s a race against time can they all the people at shadow falls to solve if her father murdered someone or not. And also the love circle that is going on is it Steve or chase for Della. While Steve back from Paris is the safe bet, then there is chase who just keeps running away and is elusive but always at eight times there for Della. Normally I do t like at much love circles but cc does outstanding job with them. Given born at midnight series had you taking a side. My ship sadly didn’t work and one of few times I was wrong. Other was Harry Potter I was mistaken. But if you have not read shadow falls please do born at midnight is the first book and follows Kylie who is forced to go to special school since she is “deemed” not fully safe hard explain but trust me 100/5 stars ~~~~JUSTIN
Sorry Iv been Mia Iv been reading books at a slower pace due to less time to read so bear with me and this weeks late but now part 2 of my fav 2016 reads with a few honorable mentions.
1. The continent by Keira drake
This book was wow as said going in I didn’t know what to expect and was sooo amazing the couple was so good with right amount of chatting and action and worry to be up there for fav read.
2.shadow run by Adrianne Strickland
This book is very spacey not something I like, but has battle of royality with a love that shouldn’t happen and with action scenes in between with betrayals. This book holy gosh sooo good and is out in a few more weeks :).
3.the wish granter by cj redwine
This book going in thought maybe would be hard since hadn’t read the orginal fairy tale but man I was blown away and look foward to reading the shadow queen. I said that a few months back but I’m bad about that.
4.blood for blood by Ryan graudin
Book 2 of wolf by wolf series and starts where last book left of in this retelling of WW2. One reason made it a fav is that ending oh man it’s bad so def give this series a read.
5.an ember in the ashes/ a torch against the night by Sabah Tahir
These books are the best mixed of fantasy aspect with dystopian. They were def a lot of people’s fav read for them for 2015/2016 so if haven’t started this you should.
6.holding up the universe by Jennifer Niven
This book I was unsure going in if I would lik this since was unsure if would bean other sad book by her or not but it’s a cute fluffy read and you learn about rare disorder in someone who can’t remember things, but yea ❤
7. Scythe by Neil shustermen
This book by itself is not as spooky as thing it would be but makes you think of life and I can say loved loved this book and what more would it be to be a scythe and “glean” people. Look foward to book 2 out of three in this series.
8. The diabolic by s.j Kincaid
This book going in was unsure since was near practically my first sci fi books but I loved it, starts out a tad confusing and maybe slow for some but it was so popular it’s getting a second book to the series so yay :).
9.ordinary Magic by Caitlin bradway
This book is like Harry Potter big time minus instead the world being muggles and Magic hidden it’s the oppsite and everyone is magical but get like people are don’t and called ords or ordinary and there basically shunned in the world plus also kidnapped or eaten since ords can do things magic peeps can’t or the monsters enjoy ords since easy prey.
10.joyride by Anna banks
A very funny and adorable i felt contemp and all the stunts and jokes done in this book anna had done so extra funny I’m like you did what Anna?!?
11. Geekerella Ashley poston
This book is extremely adorable retelling of Cinderella one of my fav retellings and a this story revolves fandoms of a movie. And also it involves a convention and I had received this book at a comic convention so found it even funnier/greater. Well worth the read
12. Rest are honerable mentions.
Rebel in the sands
The game that breaks us by micalea smeltzer
Small book but did this in one sitting and involves hockey and romance what better than a book.
Well that was my fav reads of 2016 I hope to read as much books as I did last year.
So as the book sayes what would you do your blooming with hormones and someone is moving in and ends up being sorta crush or was your crush that’s what this is about, but don’t get your knickers in a twist Lola the mc in this book has a boyfriend already so she can’t just jumping the “Bone” of jimminey the cricket, really his name is cricket but I had to say it like that. But going into this book was looking forward to reading this since I liked Anna and the French kiss and I know Stephanie Perkins is a big deal to YA contemp readers but Atleast it did not go so well reasons being I felt this book the relationships Lola had did not flow well at all and at the start of the book *SPOILER ALERT* he is down right creepy and stalkerish so that turned me off instantly and was hoping I could overcome that which a did a bit but just wasn’t the same as with Anna and French kiss which Anna and st Clair are so cheesy that it’s cute. So it’s 2ndish book in the series each can read by themselves but I will continue into isla book. For a change I can thank Stacy for a book she gave me Anna and the French kiss :). But yea so wasn’t to liked to me so 3/5 stars ~~~~~—– JUSTIN
