Title: Never Always Sometimes 

Author: Adi Alsaid 

Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Never date your best friend

Always be original

Sometimes rules are meant to be broken 

Best friends Dave and Julia were determined to never be cliché high school kids—the ones who sit at the same lunch table every day, dissecting the drama from homeroom and plotting their campaigns for prom king and queen. They even wrote their own Never List of everything they vowed they’d never, ever do in high school. 

Some of the rules have been easy to follow, like #5, never die your hair a color of the rainbow, or #7, never hook up with a teacher. But Dave has a secret: he’s broken rule #8, never pine silently after someone for the entirety of high school. It’s either that or break rule #10, never date your best friend. Dave has loved Julia for as long as he can remember. 

Julia is beautiful, wild and impetuous. So when she suggests they do every Never on the list, Dave is happy to play along. He even dyes his hair an unfortunate shade of green. It starts as a joke, but then a funny thing happens: Dave and Julia discover that by skipping the clichés, they’ve actually been missing out on high school. And maybe even on love.

As vice president of Student Council, Kaye knows the importance of keeping order. Not only in school, but in her personal life. Which is why she and her boyfriend, Aidan, already have their lives mapped out: attend Columbia University together, pursue banking careers, and eventually get married. Everything Kaye has accomplished in high school—student government, cheerleading, stellar grades—has been in preparation for that future.

To his entire class, Sawyer is an irreverent bad boy. His antics on the field as school mascot and his love of partying have earned him total slacker status. But while he and Kaye appear to be opposites on every level, fate—and their friends—keep conspiring to throw them together. Perhaps the seniors see the simmering attraction Kaye and Sawyer are unwilling to acknowledge to themselves…

As the year unfolds, Kaye begins to realize her ideal life is not what she thought. And Sawyer decides it’s finally time to let down the facade and show everyone who he really is. Is a relationship between them most likely to succeed—or will it be their favorite mistake?

Ivy is drawn into this new world of jazz, passion, and freedom, where people live for the day, because they could be stricken by nightfall.

A world battered by climate shift and war turns to an ancient method of keeping peace: the exchange of hostages. The Children of Peace – sons and daughters of kings and presidents and generals – are raised together in small, isolated schools called Preceptures. There, they learn history and political theory, and are taught to gracefully accept what may well be their fate: to die if their countries declare war.

Greta Gustafsen Stuart, Duchess of Halifax and Crown Princess of the Pan-Polar Confederation, is the pride of the North American Prefecture. Learned and disciplined, Greta is proud of her role in keeping the global peace, even though, with her country controlling two-thirds of the world’s most war-worthy resource — water — she has little chance of reaching adulthood alive.  

Enter Elián Palnik, the Prefecture’s newest hostage and biggest problem. Greta’s world begins to tilt the moment she sees Elián dragged into the school in chains. The Prefecture’s insidious surveillance, its small punishments and rewards, can make no dent in Elián, who is not interested in dignity and tradition, and doesn’t even accept the right of the UN to keep hostages. 

What will happen to Elián and Greta as their two nations inch closer to war?

Ebook vs. Physical Book

With technology continuously growing, so do our little gadgets. There are so many options for you to choose from such as Nook, iPad, as well as Kindle. There are many different reasons people like ebooks better then physical books, or physical books to ebook.
The reasons people like Ebooks:

  1. There is a lot of storage when it comes to an Ebook. Everything can be on one device and not       shelves of bookcases.
  2. It is super easy to buy books. All you have to do is click a button and the book is automatically downloaded to your device.
  3. It is super easy to carry an Ebook device instead of carrying one or two physical copies.
  4. The price difference of an Ebook vs a Physical copy can be very different. Most of the time the Ebook is always cheaper than the physical copy of the book. 


The reasons people like Physical Books:

  1. Some people really like the fact that books are tangible, something that you can hold onto.
  2. Some people feel a sense of accomplishments as they read the book. Starting from the very beginning and working your way to the end. 
  3. As you read through all the books you obtain, you start to form a library. You can always go back and look at the books that you read. 
  4. The smell of the books is another thing that people love about having the physical copy of a book.

    Review of Solarversia by Toby Downton

    I was fortunate enough to receive this book as an ebook in advance from Toby Downton. Thank you Toby for giving me the opportunity to review your book before its release date.

    Title: Solarversia: The Year Long Game
    Author: Toby Downton 

    Solarversia is the story of an epic year-long game played by 100 million people inside a virtual world modelled on the real world Solar System. Given three lives, three vehicles, and told to master The Science of Solarversia to stand a chance of winning, players compete for the £10m grand prize, and the chance to help design the next game, starting in 2024.

    Nova Negrahnu and her friends Burner and Sushi cannot wait to start playing. But when an international terrorist organisation sets its sights on the game and it’s creator, Nova finds her life turned upside down, as the line between simulation and reality blurs. Can she navigate between playing the game, coping with all the issues an eighteen-year-old girl faces and avoid the very real and present danger mounting outside Solaversia?

    Rating: I will be giving this book a 1 out of 5 stars. When I first received this book from Mr. Downton, I was so excited. I thought this book was going to be like Sword Art Online, but I was wrong. In the beginning I had such a hard time relating to the characters as well as getting immersed in the book. There was also a lot of parts in the book where I got lost and had to re-read the sentence or paragraph. In the end I was not able to finish the book because I had such a hard time relating to the characters and following along in the book. This book wasn’t my cup of tea, but it might be yours.

    The Book Fangirling Blog Award

    I was fortunate enough to be nominated for this The Book Fangirling Blog Award by @NerdgirlReview. Thank you!

    The rules for this award are:

    • Create a post to accept your award.
    • Add the blog award button into your post and put it on the side of your blog as a widget.

    • Link to me your post so I can see your answers.

    Nerd girl Review’s Questions:
    1. What is the first book you can remember reading?
               The first book that I can remember reading is the Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein  
    2. What are your bookish reading habits?
               My bookish reading habits are that I always carry a book, audiobook, and ebook on me at all times just incase I finish a book I am reading, I will always have a back up. The second reading habit that I have is that I always try to find a quiet place to read and if I can’t then I either stop reading or I put classical music on while I read so I can’t hear the noise. 
    3. What is your favorite thing about the book community?
                My favorite thing about the book community is the fact that there are still people out there who love to read. In a world that is full of technology, it is rare for me to see people who enjoy reading as much as I do. It is nice to know there is a community of people who will read and talk to you about what you have read. 
    4. What book would you erase from your memory and pretend you didn’t read?
               A book that I wish I could erase from my memory and pretend I didn’t read would be none because even though I might have not liked a certain book I am still happy that I read it because it helped me appreciate other books in a different way.

    Review of Across the Universe by Beth Revis

    Title: Across the Universe 
    Series: Across the Universe Book 1
    Author: Beth Revis 
    Publisher: EDIZIONI PIEMME

    Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.

    Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone – one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship – tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn’t do something soon, 
    her parents will be next.
    Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed’s hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there’s only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.

    Rating: I will be giving this book a 3 out of 5 stars. This was a good book. I would recommend it to others to read. However, this book was just not something that I would re-read. I thought about reading the other books in the series but I don’t think this series is for me. I love dystopians and this is a dystopian but it just didn’t do it for me. The characters seemed flat and hard to relate to, the plot did have some twists but I saw them coming. I do not want to give too much away about this book, but after reading the synopsis I thought this book was going to be a lot better then what it turned out to be. I did however, really liked the idea that the author was going for with this dystopian as as the premises behind the plot. For example, the frozen people on a spaceship who are going to colonize a new planet. I like the fact that there are no supernatural beings, just the humans, so for someone who is just getting into scifi this would be a good book for them.

    Little Free Library

    Hey Everyone,
             I was at my friends house the other day and they were talking to me about this thing called the Little Free Library. This was the first time I had ever heard of it, so when they told me, I knew that I needed to share it.
             Here is a little History on this cute library. The Little Free Library is an idea that started in a neighborhood. The idea came about in 2009 by a man by the name of Todd Bol. He started the first Little Free Library in honor of his mother who was a school teacher. He filled it with books and left it in his front yard. He then created more and gave them to friends and family. Each one had a sign that said ‘free books’. It was such a big hit! I mean who doesn’t love free books! You can take one to two books and all you have to do is leave a book or two to share.
               Now there are these libraries almost everywhere. From schools to parks, you name it. This is such a great idea. The fact that communities are coming together and promoting literacy is an amazing thing. It is ideas like this that make the community a better place. If you have any ideas that you think would benefit your community feel free to share them in the comments below.

    Review of If I Stay by Gayle Forman

    Title: If I Stay
    Series: If I Stay Series Book 1
    Author: Gayle Forman
    Publisher: Penguin Young Readers Group

    Just listen, Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel.

    I open my eyes wide now.
    I sit up as much as I can.
    And I listen.

    Stay, he says.

    Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind?
        Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it’s the only one that matters.
        If I Stay is a heartachingly beautiful book about the power of love, the true meaning of family, and the choices we all make.

    Rating: I will be giving this a book 4 out of 5 stars. This book put me through something no book has done. The main characters situation and how she pulls through is what really stood out to me. The choices that Mia makes were difficult but the way the author address them and the subject of life and death was done very well. Throughout the book the author goes from the past to the present but it all flows together well and I was able to understand why the author decided to put a memory in a certain part of the book. The only thing that I did not like was from time to time I found myself skimming the book. Other than that it is a great book for anyone who is looking for something that is contemporary, has music in it, romance, and talks about death then you should pick this book up.
