This book is about 5 students end up in detention 1 is Simon the weird kid who has a gossip blog and not many people like him. Then have the know it all bronwyn, addy the beauty queen and little miss popular, Nate the drug seller of the school & last but not least Cooper the all star pitcher. Just at the end one will not come out alive. That’s what this story is about and trying figure out the case and which one of these people is the killer. To start this book has been sitting on my case for awhile now but Kelpt eyeing it like i did for Rosemarked and fireblood but finally decided to try it out after some friends enjoyed it. I can see why some did since I was saying to Stacy I’m at 308 I’m still fudging stumped who the killer is and book is only 352 pages. Sadly though I’m not one of people who did enjoy it. Felt it was dragging for me only reason I finished I really wanted to know who the killer was and boy was I wrong. Things I liked were this book added some contemporary to it and the book did feel like the breakfast club at parts that’s some of the words used to describe this book. So overall if want a mystery that’s hard to solve but isn’t always the Main part of the book this is for you and feel more will like it than me. 3.5/5 ~~~~~JUSTIN 

Warcross by Marie lu 

As can see this was my first beach day of the year and I started this book right at the beach. But this book is about a girl named emika where about have no money and dealing with eviction notice. To make ends meet she hunts people who made bets on the insanely world famous game called warcross since your not supposed to and this game has changed the world since it’s everything people do. You can walk down the stores and see people with like virtual pets clothing crazy avatars and this is normal life.  But besides being an ok bounty hunter she is a great hacker. And last night before she is being evicted is the start of tournament for the Great Warcross players. And some items in it are sooo rare and if she can sell the items she could instantly buy her debt only way is if she hacks the system or find a glitch. Which being the tourney system going to be so hard. Well she finds a glitch and gets the item instead of disappearing she is transported to the games and be canes instant sensation. Suddenly from no one to being invited to be a player in the games, sorry not greatest explanation for the book.  But this was my first Marie lu book and gotta say I really really fun read Marie explains her world very well while still making it interesting but takes awhile near 100 pages. But this is a mix of pop culture and gaming was really cool and I feel my gaming friends would enjoy this book. I don’t want to say much more but I can’t wait for book 2 since its plot twist was crazy did not see coming and heard Marie is very known for this and sorry bad review. One of more fun stories Iv read 5/5 stars 

Bea day 2 and haul

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. 

Obsidian and stars by Julie Eshbaugh 

This book was one of my most anticipated reads and boy does it ever hit the mark and blow past it. It’s amazing. But to say this story is about now in mya’s pov and she is to getting married to kol. And her sister supposed get married to kols brother but Chev mya’s brother and clan leader declines let those 2 married so mya with her sister to teach Chev a lesson run away. On the running people were watching are they have good thoughts are bad thoughts you gotta find out. The thing of this book is a huge tear jerker I don’t cry but wanted to it sucks your soul out espcially for mya as you cheer her own to sadness of things at start of the book and thru out. My head felt so raw from the roller coaster ride but was well it and freaking loved this book.so 5/5 stars big time and can mya convince her brother to let her sister marry kols brother is say it’s the risk to find out ;). 5/5 ~~~~ JUSTIN 

The kings cage by Victoria aveyard 

This book leaves off from the same spot of book 2 which is called glass sword. With mare being shown from the king as a captured person. From there you have no idea if she will be excuted or not. 

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.

Unspoken by C.C. Hunter 


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 

The mocking birds by daisy whitney

Not going to say to much on this since it’s a topic that I don’t like to discuss much. And it’s lead to conflict, but I liked the book since the main character Alex throughout the book says got to stay strong and keep pushing and try not let incidents of certain a night get in her way. Even if she is struggling. One thing I saw in a review on good reads was she was drinking and she underage and though book takes no credit as much as she was doing a wrong thing with that. But like said not a comfy talking discussing and probably portraying that wrong. But 5/5 stars ~~~ JUSTIN
