March Wrap Up | FTM

The first book I read this month was Rebel Belle by: Rachel Hawkins! I absolutely loved this book, it was so entertaining! I rated it a 4.5 out of 5 stars! You can read my review HERE

The second book I read was The Silver Linings Playbook by: Matthew Quick. I really wanted to read this ever since I watched the film. I was very surprised to how easy and quick it was to read. I was expecting a little more difficulty because it's an adult novel. I just really loved how both Tiffany and Pat are so messed up, the characters are really what made this book really enjoyable. I highly recommend this book! I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Rebel Belle: Rachel Hawkins | Review | FTM

Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.

Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him—and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.

With snappy banter, cotillion dresses, non-stop action and a touch of magic, this new young adult series from bestseller Rachel Hawkins is going to make y'all beg for more.

February Wrap-Up! -RQK

The first book I read this month was a short story, "Mitosis" by: Brandon Sanderson. This story takes place in the same world as his book Steelheart. In this one the reckoners are fighting an Epic known as Mitosis. You may or may not be able to guess his ability based off his name. I won't spoil this, but if you have read the first and or second book in this series I suggest you read this story. It may be a short story but it very interesting just the same! Brandon Sanderson has actually released the second book of this series, unfortunately I still haven't been able to get my hands on a copy, but I assure you I am working on it! I would give this short story 5/5 stars!

The next two books I read were actually graphic novels based of Rick Riordan books. The first books to both the Percy Jackson and the Hero's of Olympus series. I absolutely love all of Rick Riordan's books! Even his short stories are absolutely phenomenal! I have always had an interest in ancient cultures, but these books made me love them even more! If you haven't read them yet then well what have you been doing with your life?! I am just kidding... kind of. Seriously though if you have not read any of his books I highly suggest you go to a library or book store and get one of them! I am not really sure if I can really rate graphic novels to books I have already read. However if I was to rate them based off how well they portrayed the books I would say they both deserve 5/5 stars as well! 

The last book that I finished this month was "Killer Instinct" by: Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Jennifer is actually our author of the month! How exciting I actually got to pick it for the first time! I have read many of her books and I absolutely loved them all! I also loved this book, no surprise. Jennifer is a tremendous author and I would suggest her books to absolutely everybody! I am working on a review for this book, when I post it I will link it in our author of the month section as well as on this wrap-up.

Note: I was so excited about Jennifer Lynn Barnes book that I didn't finish the other book I was reading. Also in English I have been reading a book that I have yet to finish. These two books are: BZRK:Reloaded by: Michael Grant as well as Frankenstein by:Mary Shelley. These books will most likely be in next months wrap-up.

Looking For Alaska: John Green | Review | FTM

Before. Miles "Pudge" Halter's whole existence has been one big nonevent, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave the "Great Perhaps" (Fran├žois Rabelais, poet) even more. He heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed-up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young, who is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart.
