the here and nowThe Here and Now by Ann Brashares

Delacorte Press
Expected April 8, 2014

Summary from Goodreads:

Follow the rules. Remember what happened. Never fall in love.

Thrilling, exhilarating, haunting, and heartbreaking, The Here and Now is a twenty-first-century take on an impossible romance. Ann Brashares’ first novel for teens since The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is about a girl from the future who might be able to save the world . . . if she lets go of the one thing she’s found to hold on to.

Meet seventeen-year-old Prenna James, who immigrated to New York when she was twelve. Except Prenna didn’t come from a different country. She came from a different time—a future where a mosquito-borne illness has mutated into a pandemic, killing millions and leaving the world in ruins.

Prenna and the others who escaped to the present day must follow a strict set of rules: never reveal where they’re from, never interfere with history, and never, ever be intimate with anyone outside their community. Prenna does as she’s told, believing she can help prevent the plague that will one day ravage the earth. But everything changes when she falls for Ethan Jarves.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ve been a huge Ann Brashares fan ever since the days of The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, so when I heard that she was having a new YA book published I was really excited! I loved her adult novel about time travel, My Name is Memory, and I can’t wait to read this one!!! Having to emigrate to a new time to live in, but having to live with the pressure of not messing up anything in history sounds like a very interesting and stressful way to live. I’m excited to read about Prenna’s new life in present day NYC and to read about her old life in the future!

Top Ten Characters I’d NEVER Want to Trade Places With

Top Ten Tuesday

A weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish :)

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday post is about the characters – for whatever reason – that you would never ever in a million years trade places with. Monica and I decided to spilt this one up this week, and we each chose 5 characters we would never trade places with! So, in no particular order…

Monica’s Choices!
Screen Shot 2014-01-20 at 12.00.38 AM

  1. Harry Potter (Harry Potter Series): I mean, as cool as it would be to realize you were “the chosen one” and all that, would you REALLY want to be? I mean sure it’d be fun being someone like Ron or Neville who helped out and got credit for being awesome but being Harry himself? No thanks, that would mean taking on even more responsibility than I already have PLUS you’d have to deal with the pressure of having to kill one of the most powerful, dangerous and scary people in the world.
  2. Bella Swan (Twilight Series): Honestly, maybe I just didn’t like her that much in general, but as gorgeous as Rob Pattinson is, would you really want someone around who basically stalked you and was addicted to your blood? Added to that you have a younger werewolf with some serious angst also pining for you.  Sorry, I know both of them are incredibly attractive but I’d probably get annoyed with them for a) stalking me and b) obnoxiously warning me about another guy.
  3. Gemma Doyle (Great and Terrible Beauty): First off, her family life is just going downhill (that’s all I’m saying, no spoilers from me!) and she gets shipped off to a boarding school.  She may be able to transport to other realms but what if you get stuck there? What if your friends get stuck there and blame you? I’d rather stay with two feet in the real world and just live in London.
  4. Simon (City of Bones Series): Again, it’s really hard to say why I wouldn’t trade places with him without giving away anything to people who haven’t read it, but it’s pretty obvious he’s in love with his best friend. And she doesn’t reciprocate, which frankly, sucks.  That alone would make me not want to trade places with him, though I’d probably hang out with him.
  5. Nick Carroway (The Great Gatsby): At first you’d want to trade places with him then you realize that being him would actually be the worst.  His cousin Daisy, and his ‘friend’ who he just met use him as a go between to get together and then Daisy’s husband also reveals that he’s cheating to Nick.  The guy keeps so many secrets and has to play it cool, something I definitely couldn’t and wouldn’t want to do.

Natalie’s Choices
Screen Shot 2014-01-20 at 12.00.38 AM

  1. Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games Trilogy): Okay okay, I know she’s a kickass heroine and all that great stuff, but personally? I wouldn’t be able to handle all of that pressure! She’s started a revolution that she didn’t even mean to start, she’s got two very gorgeous boys pining after her but can’t bring her self to choose which one she wants to be with, and OH YEAH! She gets plucked out of her life into an arena to fight TO THE DEATH not once, but twice! Mmhmmm, I think I’m good where I am right now thank you very much.
  2. Georgina Nicolson (Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging): Basically, this girl is hilarious. Unfortunately, her hilarity does not make up for how super awkward her life is! I wouldn’t be able to handle some/most of the things that happen to this girl. Nor do I look good in a beret!
  3. Juliette (Shatter Me): I’m going to keep this one short and sweet. Juliette’s touch kills people. I would go insane if I had to grow up in the absence of human touch, and not being able to hold and hug the people you love would be torture.
  4. Angie Chapman (Pretty Girl-13): Angie goes missing, shows up on her doorstep three years later, and can’t remember anything about the time she was gone, nor remember that she was actually missing. Aside from missing three years of my life from my memory, I wouldn’t really be a fan of getting kidnapped either. And I don’t want to give away any spoilers here, but as Angie’s memories begin to resurface, we learn that some pretty awful things happened to her when she was kidnapped. I would not ever want to experience what she did.
  5. Meggie (Inkheart): Meggie has the ability to enter the worlds of the books she reads, as well as read characters out of them by reading aloud from them. Sounds pretty great, right??! WRONG! She has no control over this power, and what if she was reading a really scary book or something?? I mean, this whole post evidences that there are some characters and worlds that we would never want to enter. So, although Meggie’s gift has it’s merits, it is also a curse. No thanks!

So tell me: What characters would you never trade places with? Why? Are there any people that you would LOVE to trade places with?? WE WANT TO KNOW!

Waiting on Wednesday: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

to all the boys ive loved beforeTo All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Expected April 22, 2014

Summary from Goodreads:

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ohhhhhhh boy. What happens to Lara is this book sounds like any girl’s worst nightmare!!! Imagine if all the feelings and thoughts you’ve ever had about the boys you crushed on but were always too afraid to tell them were suddenly being told to each an every one of them! I know I would be freaking out, to say the least. I’m really excited to read this one – I can’t wait to see how Lara deals with what happens, and what the “something good” is that may come out of everything that happened. Also, how cute is the cover?!?! Love it!

Top Ten Things on My Reading Wishlist

Top Ten Tuesday

A weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish :)

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday post is all about things on our reading wish list – the things that you want writers to write more of, if you could make them do it! So, in no particular order…

1) A Timeturner!!!

Okay, so this isn’t exactly something that I want authors to write more of, it’s just something that I want that would greatly improve my reading life!! I mean, come on. Who hasn’t dreamed of having a timeturner like Hermione Granger so that you could go back and have more time in your day?? A timeturner would be great because its usefulness would not end with more reading time. NO SIR! You could go back and do something you might have forgotten to do earlier but had a deadline, or you could use it for its intended purpose and take a few extra classes at school! ;)

2) Country Boys

I can’t get enough of Tucker from the Unearthly series, and I just love country boys! Probably because I don’t know any myself and dream of the day that I will and that we’ll fall in love and he’ll sing me country songs and drive me around in his pickup truck and…. well, you get the point. And don’t go recommending me The Vincent Boys, because ooooooh no, I was not a big fan of Beau the “country boy” from that one.

3) Time Travel

Okay, so maybe this one does kind of fit in with my first point about a timeturner. I think that time travel stories are great, if they’re written well. I don’t know what appeals to me so much about them, but I just love them!

4) Parents that are present/not single parent

A lot of YA novels have families where the parents are split up and one of them is very absent in the MC’s life, or families where one of the parents is dead and the MC has to deal with that grief. I don’t see what is so bad about maybe writing a book where the MC’s family and parents are both present!!! Even if they are split up, it would be nice for them both to play a role in the story. I also think that stories with alternative families would be a good read. For example, a story where the MC has two moms or two dads. It’s not something you usually read.

5) Books that take place in college/university

YA books seems to be stuck in high school, and I think that there been to be more books that take place in first or second year college/university! I am in my first year of university, and I definitely still consider myself a “young adult” and probably will for the next few years. Someone write me more books like Fangirl!!!

Well, that’s it for this time – I only have 5!

So tell me: What are things are on your reading wishlist? Do you know of any books that feature any of the topic I mentioned above that I’m looking for?? I WANT TO KNOW!

Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Summary From Goodreads: In Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.
Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

My Thoughts copy

Wow. That’s the first and only word I can think of to start off this review. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell was just perfect in every aspect. Fangirl centres around Cath and her sister Wren and their transition into University as freshman students. Reading this after having only been at university for a month myself, I was able to relate very easily to the feelings that Cath was having. Although I know that I am a much more outgoing person than Cath, I could very easily imagine a person in my position who is not feeling the exact same way, and I thought that was great.

Rainbow Rowell also created extremely realistic relationships in Fangirl. And when I say this, I mean all of them. Cath and her sister, Wren; Cath and her father; Cath and her absent mother; Cath and her roomate; Cath and Levi. In every single situation that each of these relationships were submersed in, the way that they acted and interacted together felt genuine and real. Now, speaking of relationships, this leads me to Levi.

Levi. Ohhhhhh Levi. What’s not to love? He loves coffee… and I don’t really want to say too much else about him, because learning all about him and how his relationship with Cath evolves is one of the best parts of the book. I’ll leave that part for Rowell to take care of ;) But one thing that I especially love about the romance in this novel is that although it is a main part of the book, it doesn’t ever really take centre stage, and it shares the spotlight with other important aspects of the story.

Fangirl touches on a lot of different topics, and does it well, never going too much overboard with one and forgetting about the other. There is a perfect balance between all of them. This book has it all: a girl who had a perfect, easy time in high school thanks to a great relationship with her twin sister/best friend and all the perks that brought about, but who needs to break out of her shell now that she’s in university and on her own; a father who has raised his two daughters wonderfully, despite experiencing worsening depression; and a wonderful relationship that slowly develops between to people who are so different and yet so alike.

Final ThoughtsI have nothing bad to say about Fangirl at all. Cath was a wonderful, relatable character who I would love to be friends with. Levi was, well, Levi. Rainbow wrote a book that I will love for years and years to come, and that became an immediate favourite once I was finished.

5 hearts

what monica thoughtY’all remember Monica, right? Well she had her first guest post here on Books, etc. just a few days ago! Anyway, I thought it would be fun if she shared some of her thoughts on Fangirl with the rest of you too, so here they are:

I cannot think of one major thing that I disliked in Fangirl. My favourite part was how relatable it was.  Since I’m a first year student at university too, I could really relate to what Cath was going through with a new school.  I could just picture this story happening as if it was happening at Queen’s, maybe even to the girl down the hall from me.  Also the way that Rowell created the relationships between the characters was realistic and relatable too.  Oh and Levi. He was definitely one of my favourite parts about this book, hands down, for many reasons. ;) This book also gives me hope that me and my own fangirly, flailing arms will one day be accepted and appreciated.

Favourite Quote

“Happily ever after, or even just together ever after, is not cheesy,” Wren said. “It’s the noblest, like, the most courageous thing two people can shoot for.”

Second opinions

Lauren said, “the characters were outstanding.”

Yasmine says Fangirl “is a very good book so reading it is definitely something everyone should do.”

Guest Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LeFevers

I’d like to introduce to you my very first guest reviewer on Books, etc.! I met Monica this year at Queen’s, and she loves to talk books as much as I do. We always chat over coffee after our Wednesday morning class about our latest reads, and give each other book recommendations! So, one day I offered her the opportunity to write some guest reviews for the blog, and she took the opportunity. Here’s Monica, to introduce herself to you a little bit :)

Hey I’m Monica and I’m a student here at Queen’s in Con-Ed. I’ve always loved reading books, especially YA ones and it was great to meet Natalie and talk about all the different ones we’ve read! I loved the opportunity to write a review for the blog! Aside from reading I love history and watching Netflix. Hope you guys like the review!!

Summary From Goodreads: Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?

Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.

Ismae’s most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?

My Thoughts copy

I absolutely loved this book.  At times I got confused with all the characters that were involved, but thankfully there was a cast list at the beginning of the book that cleared everything up for me!  I had no problem figuring out who the important characters were, and keeping track of the nobility was tough but totally worth it. I could easily figure out who I intensely disliked and who became my favourite minor character.  As soon as I finished this book I waited incredibly impatiently for the sequel to come out, even though you don’t technically need to read it.  I just grew so attached to the minor characters as well as the major ones that I had to see where they all ended up after Grave Mercy.

One of my favourite aspects of this book was the setting. I’m a huge history fan so the fact that it was set in Medieval Europe and introduced the intricacies and backstabbing plots was one of the best parts of the book for me! I found myself really rooting for the Duchess and playing detective myself trying to figure out what exactly was going on.

And Ismae is one of my favourite female heroines; I mean the fact that she was such a badass during a time where women were basically nothing was fantastic. Plus there was the whole, she can kill you if you cross her, which was pretty hardcore.  Despite all this, she has such strong loyalties and is an interesting combination of someone who can handle herself fine in some situations, but can be completely unsure and insecure about herself in other situations. It made me really root for her, especially when she throws herself into her new life at the convent and loves it simply because she was accepted as is.

And then of course there’s Gavriel Duval who is part of Ismae’s cover when she goes to the high courts of Brittany.  Both of them were so suspicious of each other and it was so easy to see their dislike of each other from the beginning.  So it was even better when they begin to trust and befriend each other instead of being at each other’s throats.

Final Thoughts

It was really nice to read a book that made me really root for the main characters and want to sneak a peek of the ending before I got there (I stayed strong though!). Grave Mercy kept me up reading all night as I tried to figure out what exactly was going on – all the twists and turns kept me guessing right up to the end.  I’ve already read the second book in the series, Dark Triumph, and am now eagerly awaiting the third!!

HarperCollins/ Balzer + Bray
Expected March 18, 2014

Summary from Goodreads:

What if you’d been living your life as if you were dying—only to find out that you had your whole future ahead of you?

When sixteen-year-old Alice is diagnosed with leukemia, her prognosis is grim. To maximize the time she does have, she vows to spend her final months righting wrongs—however she sees fit. She convinces her friend Harvey, whom she knows has always had feelings for her, to help her with a crazy bucket list that’s as much about revenge (humiliating her ex-boyfriend and getting back at her arch nemesis) as it is about hope (doing something unexpectedly kind for a stranger and reliving some childhood memories). But just when Alice’s scores are settled, she goes into remission.

Now Alice is forced to face the consequences of all that she’s said and done, as well as her true feelings for Harvey. But has she done irreparable damage to the people around her, and to the one person who matters most?

Julie Murphy’s SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY is a fearless and moving tour de force about love, life, and facing your own mortality.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A dying girl who wants to cross off everything on her revenge filled bucket list – who it turns out isn’t dying anymore?? Count me in! Side Effect May Vary sounds like it is going to be a very emotional book that will spur on a lot of my own thinks about things. Also, cute typography on the cover, I’m a goner!!!

Review: The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine

How I got this Book: From the publisher in exchange for an honest review – Thanks HarperCollins!
Summary From Goodreads: Wren Caswell is average. Ranked in the middle of her class at Sacred Heart, she’s not popular, but not a social misfit. Wren is the quiet, “good” girl who’s always done what she’s supposed to—only now in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change, but doesn’t know how.

Grayson Barrett was the king of St. Gabe’s. Star of the lacrosse team, top of his class, on a fast track to a brilliant future—until he was expelled for being a “term paper pimp.” Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change, but doesn’t know how.

One fateful night their paths cross when Wren, working at her family’s Arthurian-themed catering hall, performs the Heimlich on Gray as he chokes on a cocktail weenie, saving his life literally and figuratively. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are—and falling in love.

My Thoughts copy

The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine was not as amazing as the title leads you to believe. Sadly, there wasn’t much amazing in there for me at all.  Wren Caswell was a likeable character, but she wasn’t anything special. She was too typical for me. You know, the indecisive, average at everything, middle of her class (socially and academically) kind of girl. Wren works at her family’s Banquet hall, and while working one night, she saves a hottie teen boy from chocking to death on a cocktail weenie. And then BAM! Instalove hits you right in the face.

We learn that this boy Wren saved is Grayson Barrett, a bad boy who wants to change his ways… maybe? He manages to land a job working for Wren’s family’s business to, you guessed it, be closer to Wren and spend more time with her! Told from dual point of view, this is where the book took a turn for the worst. From this point onward – and even a little bit before – all we ever got to read about was the internal banter of Wren and Grayson each wondering if the other one liked them (which they obviously did) and what they should do about it.

We also got to read about Grayson and all of his past term-paper-pimp antics, and his band of miscreant friends and all of the trouble that they like to get into. Which to me, just didn’t seem realistic. I don’t want to give anything away, but I’ve never heard of a group of young teenagers doing things like that before. But even Grayson alone didn’t do it for me. He just didn’t seem like a good person, even though he was trying to change.

Final Thoughts

All in all, The Promise of Amazing started out kind of okay. I’ve got to admit, the moment that Wren saves Grayson from choking was kind of cute. But after that it all went downhill for me. I found the characters underdeveloped and unrealistic, and therefore I couldn’t connect with any of them. And I also found the plot (/lack of a real plot other than their internal bantering?) mind-numbingly boring. But, it has a really cute cover!

Second opinions

Diane said The Promise of Amazing “had so much potential but lost its steam.”

Amber said it was “bland.”

Debby said “It wasn’t a completely terrible read.”

the half life of molly pierceThe Half Life of Molly Pierce by Katrina Leno

HarperTeen
Expected July 8, 2014

Summary from Goodreads:

A mysterious and visceral page-turner about a seventeen-year-old girl who unravels the secrets of her alternate personality, reminiscent of the film Memento.

You live and you remember.
Me, I live and I forget.
But now-now I am remembering.

For all of her seventeen years, Molly feels like she’s missed bits and pieces of her life. Molly suffers from dissociative identity disorder, and since she was a little girl, she’s played host to Mabel, a completely separate and individual personality. When Mabel is in control, Molly experiences the blackouts she’s been so scared of. But now Mabel is letting Molly in on her secrets; she’s letting Molly remember. And in doing so, Molly uncovers the separate life she seems to have led…and the love that she can’t let go.

The Half Life of Molly Pierce is a suspenseful, evocative psychological mystery about uncovering the secrets of our pasts, facing the unknowns of our futures, and accepting our whole selves.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As soon as I read that this book was about dissociative identity disorder I was hooked. I know that this is one I’m going to have to read ASAP. I’ve been interested in dissociative identity books ever since I read and adored Pretty Girl-13. It is just such an interesting and unusual concept to think and write about. I can’t wait to read about what Molly Pierce remembers about the other half of her life!
