Splintered

Splintered

By: A.G.  Howard

Rating: 4.5 Wine Glasses




So here's the thing, I want to be able to tell you I am going to write this review with complete control, that I'm going to use punctuation, and coherent sentences, but then I would be lying. BECAUSE GUYS I HAVE NEVER WANTED TO JUMP DOWN A RABBIT HOLE MORE THEN I DO RIGHT NOW. YES ALL CAPS IN NECESSARY, BECAUSE YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT IM KIND OF GOING INSANE RIGHT NOW.  

                
                 

You know those moment in your life where you look at something and think "wow, I will neverrrrrrrr do that/touch that/be that/READ THAT", and then you surprise yourself because you end up sitting in your room reading THAT book on Alice and Wonderland. The exact kind of book you serious told yourself you would never pick up. And thats not even the worst part because while you were doing/reading/ this so call "thing" that once again you told yourself you would NEVER EVER do, you end up totally loving it. And then you just feel stupid. Like I do at this moment, but it's okay because I don't regret it. I wear this shameful mark proudly, because guys this book is worth it.

I'll start off with my love for these characters; I obviously expected the classic Alice and Wonderland characters. Ha, I did not see ANY OF THIS coming.  A.G. ditched these characters in the freaking wind. Andddd I loved it. Sure you have the whole Wonderland back ground and setting, but the setting isn't even that similar to the Wonderland we know and I was really drawn to that. It was for sure morbid and a bit darker, but that only peaked my curiosity more.  She did a magnificent job of creating completely new characters, and wow. The MC was the perfect balance. She was troubled; I mean her mom is in an asylum, so totally makes sense. But she really pushed through all her troubles and fought to fix them. That's what makes her such a wonderful character to follow. Alyssa never stopped fighting, even when she was faced with strange looking creators, and weird powers. I think the thing I love the most about her was her ability to accept who she was, sure she didn't want to believe in the beginning, but I loved that she embraced it sooner than most characters would. So did that wonderfully amazingly beautiful best guy "friend" of hers. JEB. Wow. Crying.


 So maybe I just need to restart life with a hot best guy friend? Gosh, fiction torments me, and I love it more then I should. I'm just going to be short and sweet when I say there will for sure be a  (sorry for the curse word) love triangle in this series. Ugh. Yes. Cue the groaning, and angry noises we make when those words pop up together. Buttttt I'm already pretty positive who she will end up with, so I can tackle this love triangle pretty easily. And I'm not going to lie; both of the two guys interest me. I might like a certain pierced (hint hint wink wink) boy more for her. But I will totally take the guy she leaves behind. Maybe a trip to Wonderland will happen after all?

I dived right into this book on the very first page, and I will probably start binge reading the second one the moment I finish this. So because I'm kind of impatient, I'll leave it at this: Go jump down a rabbit hole. Preferably one called Splintered.
Stay Drunk...on Books,
Steph

 Mini-Reviews and Excerpts:
 "A read that will keep you on your toes until the very end. Genius!" - Makayla (The Book Life) 
"This is a twisted tale... that you can relate to." - Bryce (Novels to Song)
 “Beautifully twisted...A novel that shocks and surprises, and is not your typical love story. A gripping read filled with complex characters, dark humor and lyrical writing that leaves you wanting more! Paradis produced a story that carried a lot of emotion that dealt with love, relationships, and the darkness that surrounds death and the mark it leaves on those who have escaped it.” - Ashley F. (Falling Down the Book Hole)
"The story was lined with black and drowned in glitter... Volition is one of those books that makes you reflect on life's past, present, and future." - Abbey (Books a la Mode)
"I could not put this beautiful and dark tale of Tate McKenna down! Be with her as she discovers the impact that free will, fate and the act of letting go can have on a person!” - Jaclyn (Living in a World of Book Quotes)

Excerpt #2: I look up into the sky to see all of the drops falling on the ground before they make contact. I realize the drops have more in common with me than I think. We’re all just falling until we’re not falling, and we don’t really have a choice where we land.

The Fifth Wave


The Fifth Wave
By: Rick Yancey

Rating: 5 Wine Glasses


When I first started this book I expected it to be absolutely phenomenal, totally not disappointed. This is a wave you seriously want to ride. (Lame pun attempt).It's really hard to find books that posses balance. Most books tend to lend toward a specific theme. Whether it's romance, or nonstop action, or suspend there is usually one that stands out more than others, but in the Fifth Wave I felt like Rick Yancey made some crazy perfect combination of everything. Sure, its crazy action packed, but it's not just action packed. It gives you everything in equality, and at different time with different characters. 
 I'm just going to be blunt and say I usually hate duel perspective books, I feel like it takes away from the suspense, but in this book it only heightened it. Being able to be in different characters mind just made this book that much more interesting and contributed majorly to the whole balance thing Yancey has going. Obviously each character has a different story, and it's just wonderful being able to go through their mind and see just how flipping freaked they were about there situation.
Cassie was my favorite to follow around, mainly because she just had a lot of moxie. If you're look for a character who has a crap load of spunk, Cassie possesses that spunk, and I'm talking big time.  She's a fighter because she has to be, but in those quiet moments when she’s alone with her thoughts you see just human and afraid she is. Because HELLO IT’S THE ALIEN APOCALYPSE AND SHES BEING HUNTED. But just because Cassie is scared out of her mind doesn't mean she doesn't have the guts to do what she has to do, she goes though the hardship of being alone, of killing someone to survive, and challenging the number one rule she's lived by since the alien apocalypse started: Trust no one. She can kick ass, but not like some avenging warrior angel, she knows how to defend herself in a totally realistic way, and I thank Rick Yancey for that. Because if she just happened to transform to some crazy kick ass warrior princess, I would not be ranting about how much I love this book right now. This book is fiction, but everything about the characters were real, Cassie was completely relatable. She questioned and fought over everything any other person would in her situation. And she has sass, and I really do like my sassy characters.



“Prayers are promises, too, and these are the days of broken promises.”

This books whole plot revolves around promises and fear. Promises to save someone, to go back for them. The fear that you are losing your humanity, and the person next to you isn't who they say they are. This book makes you question every little thing because you really don't know what the freak is going to happen next.


The romance is this book was definitely in the back ground but like I said there was balance. Everything was placed where it was needed, and I couldn't have asked for a more diverse book. If you are looking for high intensity, crazy action, adventure, and a sassy Cassie you should pick this one up.
Stay drunk on books,
Steph:)

Expert From Book One:


“Did she hurt you?" Taren asked. "Your head hit the tile pretty hard.” That explained the spinning, and the pain that was starting to seep through the cracks of my shock.


I reached up to touch the back of my head. 


“Ow! Yeah, I guess she got me pretty good. What was that about, anyway?  What's her problem with me?”

Before he could answer, one of the nurses approached. “We'll get you checked out now, dear.”

“I was just going to get her some ice,” Taren said, his hand on the small of my back, steering me away from the nurse.

“Don't be silly,” the nurse said. “She could have a concussion. We need to take her to the E.R.” 

While she went to confer with an orderly, I stifled a laugh. I had been wanting to get out of there. Maybe if my mother knew I was just as likely to lose my life inside the mental hospital as out, she'd spring me that much sooner.

“Wait.” Taren leaned close, his breath in my ear. My pulse went back to racing. “Do you have any…birthmarks?” 

His question was so bizarre that I was heedless of the pain and snapped my head to face him.

“What?” 

His eyes were only inches away, boring into mine. He grabbed my wrist and pushed up the sleeve of my hoodie, searching. I tried to pull away, but his grip was too strong.

“Do you?” he asked again, checking the other arm.

“N-no,” I stammered. 

Intensity didn't usually unnerve me, but at that moment, his definitely did. 

“Taren, enough!” the nurse said, hurrying back to us. “What on earth are you doing?”

She pried his hands from my arm, causing Taren to come back to himself. 

“Nothing, sorry.” He dropped his gaze. “Sorry, I hope you feel better.” 

He turned abruptly and strode away.

Black Ice


Black ice

By: Becca Fitzpatrick
Rating: 5 Wine Glasses

Let me first start off by saying that Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick was one of the first books to make me absolutely adore and love reading. So when I found of that she was writing another book, I screamed, and danced, and all that happy stuff.


Now if you've read her book you know that she can write one killer prologue, and you are instantly hooked. This book started just the way she likes it, and I think she enjoys torturing us with this prologue personally because I was scared out of my freaking mind, it was just that well written. Sure the creepy factor was at a high, but hello I NEEDED ANSWERS TO ALL THIS MADNESS!!


You dive right in after that, head freaking first because honestly the only thing that matters once you pick up this book is finishing it. It's just that good. The plot was absolutely chilling (pun totally intended).


I've always loved Beccas ability to create characters, and this MC, Britt, was perfectly imperfect. I loved seeing everything from her point of view, and watching her grow in those long four days in the mountains. She was a daddy's girl in the beginning, and was pretty dependent.  So watching her gain independence was just so satisfying. Britt defiantly had flaws, and she kinda struggled with some things, but she kept a pretty straight head while in the mountains. Her ability to maintain control is something I wish I could harbor, you know if I'm ever kidnapped and had my abilities tested in the mountains. Now let's talk about that hottie MASON, my gosh Becca you just kill me with your men. UGH. I seriously can't stand reality, mason my gosh. You have to understand this guy is just such a tortured soul, and we women love our tortured souls.

He was just a perfect love interest, and I totally didn't blame Britt for falling in love with her capture one bit, nope, not one tiny bit. Sure, in the beginning of the book I was screaming about how much I love/hate him, because he just so confusing. I could not figure him out and I really just wanted to know all his secrets. And I'm telling you this now: YOU DO WANT TO KNOW HIS SECRETS, VERY BADLY.  He had that perfect level of mystery coming off him, and you couldn't help but be interested. Unlike mason, is this annoying chick named Korbie, who also happened to be Britts BFFL. My gosh, I COULD NOT STAND HER. I was just waiting for someone to gag her, especially when they were kidnapped. I was actually looking forward to them gagging her. (Of course it never happened, *sigh*). The only reason I was okay with Korbies existence at all was because I'm pretty positive, like 98% that Becca wanted you to hate her guts. Well, Becca I congratulate you because I hate this girl more than the SATS. She was the most whinny, selfish, naive child of life. Now her brother Calvin, well I'm going to be vague, but I'll leave it at this: He needs to step on Legos, lots of them.

The plot for this book was just remarkable, and she really did a fabulous job of making it perfectly intricate. I was caught up on so many things. It's like one big jumbled puzzle and all you can think about is solving it. And trust me you will, because you will not be able to put this book down.

The Last Sacrifice

                                                        The Last Sacrifice
                             

                                                                               





                                                          By Richelle Mead
                                                    Rating: Five Wine Glasses


 "But Steph his book is like sooo old" yes, I am fully aware how old this book is. BUT I couldn't help myself. This book has to be reviewed (no matter how long ago it was published, which was four years ago). It's just one of those, HOLY CRAP THE FEELS AND ALL THAT JAZZ. Ergo the need to write about it. Oh and I'm just going to tell you first off that there will be SPOILERS!!!! (BUT that shouldn't be a major problem because most of you have read this book) Seeeeeeee, maybe reading an older book has its perks;)
Rose Hathaway is just hand down one of my FAVORITE CHARACTERS IN THE LITERARY WORLD. She's just got this crazy fun vibe to her, and she's so funny to follow around because she's always punching people. I mean who doesn't like girls who just punch people without think about it first. (I'm sure plenty of people are against that tactic) but with rose this tactic worked out pretty much perfectly every time. So yes, I was a fan of the punch now think later. And her snark. My gosh. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE her snark. Lissa might have become queen of the whole freakin vampire world but ROSE IS THE QUEEN OF HUMOR AND SNARK. SHE RULES. Honestly I feel bad for whoever thinks they can out wit/out snark rose. EVERY TIME she gets into some heat argument I'm just like  "It's just not happening buddy, so you can take your wanna be snark and bow down to the queen." 

The best part about a series is that you get to see the characters grow. Rose in the beginning was just this big bundle of "I'm tough don't mess with me" and don't get me wrong she will always be that. But now you know just how complex rose is. She's compassionate, she's loyal to a fault, she has flaws just like any person that's half human. Point is, that rose isn't just one thing. She's a bunch of little things, maybe some more than others...ahem snark. 
I just want the world to know that I SHIP DIMITRI AND ROSE WITH A BURNING PASSION. Their relationship in this series was done so beautifully and their story is so incredibly tragic and heartwarming . I have been waiting all SIX BOOKS for them to be together. FINALLY I am satisfied.  And I loved how Rose made Dimitri forgive himself at the end. Ugh, gosh. The feels. She made such an adult move I was so surprised. I'm just like "ahh rose, this isn't irrationally, totally not a you move". 
But like I said characters grow, and Rose grew so wonderfully. I hope Dimitri and Rose grow old together, and all that mushy stuff.
The last thing I really want to comment on is how much I love her dysfunctional family. My gosh, I love them. Abe is like the icing on the cake. I really think he is the only one who could possibly talk Rose in a battle of wits, and I would totally pay to see that. Her relationship with her mom was rough in the beginning, but they made it work. And like I said even though they really are a totally dysfunctional family they are the best and most entertaining dysfunctional family. Probably the only kind of family I would want on a reality television show. I would watch that all day long. 
Richelle Mead really nailed it with this one. She wrapped this series up perfectly. And she stitched my heart back together pretty well. I'm not sure what the future has in store for these lovely character, but "I think it's going to be good" -Rose.

Tear you Apart




Tear You Apart

          

        By Sarah Cross

(Net galley gave me this ARC for an honest review)

Rating: 2 wine glasses



I'm going to start this review off by saying how much I adore this cover! It's absolutely beautiful, and it goes with the story perfectly. (Snow White and those dang poison apples)

I've always loved fairy tales; in fact I'm a huge fan of Once Upon A Time, Disney stories, and other retellings. I LOVED Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross. That's what made me want to read Tear You Apart so badly, and when I got the ARC I wanted to pee myself, the excitement was so real. So you can understand why I'm so incredibly upset to say that I couldn't even finish this book, and it took me a good couple hours to really figure out what I didn't like about it. It was just a bunch of little things in the beginning, but there just ended up being one huge problem that I couldn't possibly overlook. I didn't like Viv, and shes the main character. She was a GREAT side character in Kill Me Softly. And I prefer her to stay a side character. Rude, maybe. But she just wasn't an interesting MC. She's was just this whinny annoying little girl, I honestly don't know what Henley saw in her. She's has very little redeeming quality, so you can understand when I say reading about her and being in her mind was not fun. I feel like 75% of the words that came out of her mouth was her complaining about how awful her life was, or saying something rude. And yes, I know she's cursed, and she deserves to vent and be disappointed that the man she loves is supposed to kill her. I get it, really I do, but it was too much. Viv doesn't remind me of a princess, she belongs on some drama filled reality TV. show

Now Viv wasn't the only thing that irked me in this book, the plot just UGHHHH. "WAIT, STEPHANIE WHAT PLOT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?" "The almost NONEXISTENT one?" "Yes, the almost nonexistent plot."  I felt like nothing was planned out in this book, there wasn't enough organization and the plot just jumped off a cliff from the get go. There was so much repetition I was so bored. She just keeps doing the same thing over and over and over and over again. (See how annoying that is.)

Now, this book isn't all bad. Sure I wasn't a fan of it, but I loved Henley, he was so kind and Viv the whiner doesn't deserve to have him. He was one of the only reasons this book gets two wine glasses. I also liked the whole fairy tale aspect; she just didn't execute it well.

There was so much potential and I know Sarah Cross can write, I've read Kill Me Softly. I'm just going to toss this book in the "crap happens sometimes" bucket. I still look forward to seeing what she comes out with. After all this is only her second book.
Stay Drunk....On Books.

Ship It Sunday #2

(Sis)




Hey guys! Welcome to the second official Ship It Sunday. For those who haven't seen my first post, I created Ship It Sunday for the purpose of talking about our ships.
Once again, I would imagine that most of us bloggers are very aware of what a ship is, but for the few who don't heres the definition: ship  (Yes, I got this from Urbandictionary.com, sue me).


N: Short for romantic relationship, popularized in fanfiction circles.


V: To endorse a romantic relationship.


N: I see a 'ship developing between Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley.


V: I ship Ron/Hermione


Point of Ship It Sunday:


We all have ships. I know I use I ship it for just about everything including chips with cheese. I thought that we could have Sunday dedicated to our lovely character ships though. Every Sunday we can talk about different ships, little ships, dying ships, ships we wish existed, and ENORMOUS ships. Point is Ships. I want this to be an interactive post, PLEASE comment on your opinions of the ship! I promise I wont throw stones at you, even if your opinion is different from mine.  Hell, you might not even ship them! That is perfectly okay! I would love to hear what you have to say! Oh, and there will probably be spoilers in the post, so if you have not read the book that we are talking about that Sunday, please dont continue reading the post! Go read the book!





For the second Ship It Sunday I pick the unstoppable Jace and Clary from The Mortal Instruments. (Part of the reason I picked them is because the series just ended, and I'm having some withdrawal.) This is my way of dealing with it.


(If you have not read The Mortal Instruments you need to pick yourself up and go buy all six of them, you should have done this yesterday)


My love for Jace and Clary is so incredibly unreal. They have controlled my world for all six books of the series. They are an amazingly dedicated couple,and I have never not shipped them, even when they were "brother and sister" (Sorry, I shipped incest for a while). Hey, you guys all know you shipped incest for those books too, don't deny it. 



My ship for them is possibly the biggest ship I have right next to some others.
Jace and Clarys ship:
 

Just incase you were confused they are the massive ship. That little ship is insignificant and probably wouldn't make it in the world of ships. Oh well, survival of the fittest and all that jazz.


Reasons to ship Clary and Jace:

    They are such a real couple, they had trials and fights.  They screamed,and kissed and made up. They have gone through the freaking underworld together. I don't know about you but most people don't break up after going through hell together (no pun intended).

     Clary influenced Jace positively.  Jace can be so crass and impassive sometimes, but when he was with Clary he would realize who he wanted to be, and that was who he was when he was with her.

    Well once again they kick ass together. And they support each other in there ass kicking, now there's a ship I love.


Reasons not to ship Clary and Jace:

    NONEXISTENT (not that I'm biased or anything).;)

My song of choice for Clary and Jace would have to be:

 Clarity by Zedd.

 Or at least this part of the song.

"If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?

If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?"

For so long there love was so insane and unnatural for the first couple of books, but it was always meant to be, and they were always each other's clarity. 💛


Questions: what's your song of choice for Clary and Jace? Do you ship them? What do you think about there ship name Clace? How did you feel about the end of the series? Were you happy with the ships ending?


That ends Ship It Sunday! Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to comment your opinion!


Stay Drunk.....on Books.

Love, Steph
