Ahh another ginger zee book that was on tap for me. When was able to get this arc I was jumping and down like crazy reason being is when I’m not reading one of my other passions is weather and have had that passion since a young age. So when you see this book you think tornado and weather plus in the title is helicity which means to spin. Which it def is. And this book is about 13 year old helicity who is about to thru a major change. Where at start of the book helicity is frustrated with her family since helicity in high school wants to get into honors classes but her parents don’t so she gets frustrated and takes her horse for a ride. Along the ride she starts to see a storm go up and watches it till suddenly see’s the storm getting violent. As she rushes home a tornado forms and thru her eyes watches as her town gets destroyed. Rest of the book picks where her town is leveled and suffering slightly what most victims go thru with ptsd and see’s how her life’s changed. All this was amazingly displayed and loved it as weather nerd and storm chasers. After this though book goes down hill. I’m going go do *spoilers now* I usually don’t but I need to get it out their and just preying its the arc and just not finished. But after town is destroyed. Her dad is blaming helicity for her star studded football player getting hurt. But after the hospital he is home complaining of pain takes meds doctor gave. Then it seems not a week later or 2 he is out of pills and dad gets more and sayes that the brother gets guilty look when helicity looks at him or thoughts but doesn’t think much more. I get it’s middle grade and saw the hints what brother was doing but doesn’t go into details. Another thing that happens is later bring a crush for helicity. He is 17 year old guy has the excitement for weather and young and immature like a lot of young storm chasers but way he acts it has sooo many vibes of some famous chaser or chasers, one I know ginger zee dated. Aka reed timmer. Who was on the show storm chasers on discovery channel. The guy in this book still seems cool but then later wants the photo so bad that helicity took of the tornado and he later sells it and gives most of money to helicity. She is mad that he did it with no thought to ask. And ginger trying to show that helicity doing stuff just for love of weather and not sell and the guy gets absolutely no repercussion from it at all. Forgot to add with the brother is at one point helicity hanging with brother and goes pick something up and is with brother and sayes gets up again and brother is looking odd. Later on the trip she is missing some money from her purse. Again this hints at things but then just left open ended. Last very last part of the book she is able to go on a storm chase with a meterlogist/ storm chaser and her guy crush. And it’s been raining hard in city their in for days. The guy and helicity find a time where with out asking takes the car to chase a storm and the kid is driving aggressive and fast and just being dangerous with helicity wanting to get out. Well he puts it through a flood. He gets hurt but she doesn’t. But as she is being rescued by emergency and stuff. Out comes to rescue as well is her chaser friend the meterlogist. Well let’s say one survives while other doesn’t “technically she does but in coma” but it’s left next page after that like I’m helicity I made bad decisions but I’m a survivor. 1 as a middle grade book I feel that might discourage people to not like weather or want to read books. And 2 I felt would of flowed better for storm chase she had actually gotten her tornado in a field that’s it and show she over came tornado fear while still taking the beauty of Mother Nature…. sorry I’m just so annoyed at all the things left open that are touched on then not.
3/5 stars this book could of been higher and loved it but so many flaws.
~~~~JUSTIN 3/5 stars
Sometimes even all the love in the world is not enough to save someone.
Willow Thorpe knows friction… The friction between her parents, Rosie and Rex. The friction inside herself as she tries to navigate two worlds since their divorce.
But life has not always been like this.
When Rosie and Rex first met, theirs was an attraction of opposites. Rosie lived life for those heightened moments when love reveals its true secrets. Rex lived life safely, by the rules. Common sense would say theirs was a union not meant to last, but it was genuine love.
Now Willow just wants to be with Rosie, to bask in her mother’s outsize glow and, she thinks, protection. Because Rosie is the only person who can make Willow feel totally alive and completely loved.
But as Willow and Rosie and Rex try harder and harder to stay connected as a family, Rosie’s manic tornado of love continues to sweep up everyone in sight, ultimately to heartbreaking results.
“Because Rex Thorpe finally knew what love was. And she tasted like Pixy Stix and wore polka-dot underwear.”
This warmed and broke my heart at the same time. From the start, I knew that these characters were going to break me and I wasn’t wrong.
A truly heartwarming read that left me breathless. No words can help me express my true feelings for this book. But I do say these words with tears in my eyes and goosebumps on my arms.
This magnificent tale of family, love, and heartbreak will explore all kinds of love even if it’s tragic. I loved every page of this and I wish everyone would give this a chance. Please judge this book by its beautiful cover!
I’m forever grateful to the publisher and Goodreads for having a giveaway for this book. They helped me discover a book that will be my favorite of the year and the year just started. I’m ready to ride this emotional roller coaster again and maybe live my life a little bit like Rosie. 💋
Ahh yes that’s right it’s another fifty shades book ;). 50/50 split for people a lot are saying nooooo my eyes. Take example my friend jennifer and her doggie blogger Bella from a Bella faerie tale she will be like my eyes noooo!! While I’m here yes yes yes. But going in I waited 2.5 years for this book that’s a life time in book years atleast though not GOT author who takes almost 5-10 years. But this is book 2 from christians pov. The first book left a tad later than Anastasia’s pov which I find oddly interesting. One thing going for book one was big gaps between Anastasia and Christians so was like reading a whole new book, unlike where I will say not going into much detail it is his pov for second but but to the extreme sounded like reading book 2 over again like i was Anastasia than Christian. Also like most shade books the writing is not very good but gotta love it for what it is I think if still are reading you knew this already. But some of the things I still loved is when Christian is not with Ana can see what he does he compassionate, besides so demanding. But get to see the scenes that we didn’t froms Ana’s like the fight with mrs Lincoln at christians party to Leila. But yea over all 4/5 stars since I can’t get enough but hoping last book isn’t 3 years away like book 1 to 2 was.
4/5 stars ~~~~ JUSTIN
So it’s Wednesday again so for the 3 w’s which are what are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish?
And what do you think you’ll read next.
1. What I’m currently reading is the devil wears Prada. I’m doing this since I love the movie and found the book for a dollar I’m hoping it’s just as good as the movie.
2. What I recently finished is all of vampire academy which was 6 books in a week or week and a half.
3. What I plan to read next is? I’m very bad at this but after TDWP I plan to start bloodlines and that series.
The books I’ll try to read which I’m bad about following. On my personal quest to 100 books I’m at 84 now so 2 months shouldn’t be to hard.
1. I just literally 3 mins ago before making my new cup of java finished vampire academy it had been years to say I actually had truely read the series so I’m glad I did and every book is a 5 star ⭐️
2. Just today bought at the thrift store which I forget if tried to read before or not is the devil wears Prada and about to hop into that after this post and to say the movie oh dear do I love the movie so much it’s like confessions of a shopaholic. That book and movie I like the movie better.
3. Artemis by Andy weir
Can’t wait to read that book since surprising I really enjoyed the mars book which Iv completely stomped on the name but look forward to that.
After these I have no clue what I’ll read but maybe the darkest minds??? Comeback to find out.
The month isn’t over and may get 1 more book done but I’d figured I’d go over what I read. Which over the period so far have read 9 books. May get to 10 before Wednesday
1.the law of tall girls
Started off the month on contemporary since I had to review for an author. And the book was good i enjoyed it and different since main story for her is she is super tall so hard things for her.
2.renagades by Marissa Meyer
Once you saw that MM was coming out with a new series it’s like a 😲 moment!!! So I was glad to have read it and was good and good super hero book. And Adrian will be a huge fictional bf for many.
3.the school for sidekicks
This book out of many I read for the month was proubly the worst reason why was it had a good plot but the thing going for it was the whole time could never truely figure out who is counted as a good guy/ bad guy minus his mash pot group of friends so it bugged me.
Another Book thru the month I was not fond of yea part of its story is good with trying to figure a cure for rosemarked but just parts sooo truely bugged me but I’ll come again to read book 2.
5-9 vampire academy series.
