The Lying Game

     Happy New Year's Eve!!! I wish you the best in 2011. I recently read The Lying Game by Sara Shepard. It was pretty intense! My heart was always racing, and I wouldn't put it down. I read from start to finish. I loved it! I'm not usually into the whole murder mystery genre, but this book was an exception.

     Sutton Mercer is dead, but no one knows. Why? Because Emma Paxton, her long lost twin, shows up right after the murder. Someone threatens her into pretending to be Sutton, so she changes her identity. Emma is stuck with Sutton's life, which includes mysterious threats, mean girls, and THE LYING GAME. Emma doesn't know who to trust. Everyone is a suspect.
      Emma makes it her job to figure out who killed her sister, but that's kind of hard to do when her friends are pulling dangerous pranks all the time. Once life starts to get really scary for Emma, she tries to leave, but she changes her mind and stays to solve the mystery. Emma is finding pieces of the puzzle, but nothing makes sense. It could have been anyone. She needs more information, but she can't find any.
     When Emma finally knows part of what happened the night of her sister's murder, it doesn't solve anything. She finds that the people she suspected most, might not have had anything to do with Sutton's death. Someone is watching. Someone knows the truth. Someone murdered Sutton, but who was it? Will Emma every find out the answer, or will her meddling cost her her own life? *Phae Phae*

     Hey everyone! I slept in today and now I'm very very very hyper! =D Anyway... I finished Paranormalcy by Kiersten White! I had been waiting forever to read it, and my friend over at Katie's Amazing Book Reviews let me borrow it! Thanks Katie!!!

      Evelyn is a hunter. She works for the IPCA, and her jobs is to catch paranormal creatures. Evelyn, or Evie, doesn't know who she really is. She has been working for as long as she can remember, and she doesn't know who her parents are. Soon she meets Lend, a creature she has never seen before. He is made from water, and can change his appearance. Even though Evie isn't supposed to be talking with Lend, she sneaks around so that she can see him. She is fascinated by Lend, and they are soon good friends despite their obvious differences, but life for Evie isn't always going to be happy.
     Paranormal creatures start dying. Not just one at a time. Huge groups of creature are found dead with no signs of injury. Everyone is puzzled. No one can determine what has happened, no one but Evie. On every dead body she sees a handprint. Not just anyhand print, a handprint with little flames under it. A sign that means the body's soul has been taken.
     Strange things start happening and the creature that is killing everyone is let into the IPCA center. Lend and Evie escape the center, but not before seeing the creature named Vivian. Looking for answers, Evie and Lend face many more troubles, but none bigger than the murders. Will they stop Vivian, or will one of them die trying? *Phae Phae*

Beautiful Creatures

     It took me awhile, but I finally finished Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.  I have to say it was kind of confusing for me, but that is probably because I kept reading and stopping and reading and stopping. I really like Beautiful Creatures and I CAN'T wait to read Beautiful Darkness. Okay, here is my review:

     Ethan Wate met Lena Duchannes and couldn't stay away.  Lena is a Caster (a witch), who has a cursed family. When she turns sixteen, she will either turn Good or Bad. She is afraid she will go dark like all of the others in her family tree. Lena's birthday is one of the only things she fears. The other is losing Ethan. The two have a connection never seen before. A mortal and a caster can not be together. It never works. Ever. But yet they pull through. Fighting their families, their community, and the darkness. Is it too much for them to handle? With normal teenage problems, historical flashbacks, experimental spells, and all the other caster stuff, Ethan and Lena have a lot to deal with. With Lena's birthday looming in the near future, how will Ethan and Lena stay together? Will they be safe? *Phae Phae*

     I just finished the book Firelight by Sophie Jordan! I loved it. It is probably my favorite book right now. I finished it in one night because once I started reading I didn't want to stop.
Right in the begining the action started; that is one of things I loved about Firelight. I am  drawn to books where the beginnings start off at a fast pace. They make my heart race, and I have a really hard time putting them down. Here is my review:

Firelight is about a fire breathing draki named Jacinda. Jacinda is very free spirited, and that gets her in  a lot of trouble.  After she barely escapes her death, with the help of a hunter named Will, Jacinda's mom forces her and her twin sister, Tamra, to move away from their home. Jacinda is furious. She doesn't want to leave, and on top of that, she has to go to public school. The place were kids go, five days a week, to be around a bunch of other kids that are there to learn knew things. One of those kids happens to be Will. Anytime Jacinda gets near him she feels her natural instincts kick in. That is the opposite of what her family wants to happen. They want her to permanently become human; they want her to kill the draki inside of her. Will is stopping that process, and her family wants her to stay away from him, but what does she want? She has her secrets and Will has his, but when  the draki come looking for her, she and Will have to decided to stay apart for their own protection, or fight for what they want. *Phae Phae*

Winter 2010

     Can you believe it is December??? I know I can't. November went by reallllly super fast. Even with all of the homework I had it was speedy quick. Are you guys looking forward to the snowy season, or not? I'm not. I like seeing the snow fall and baking cookies, but I don't like being cold or trudging through snow.
     Right at this very moment I am looking outside through my window at all of the lights on the houses. It looks pretty amazing! The neighborhood is now bright, colorful, and sparkly. It is gorgeous! I promise to have some book reviews out soon! I know you are probably tired of my blah blah blah posts, so I am going to go now. Keep warm! *Phae Phae*
