The Hunger Games

Title: The Hunger Games

About: In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. 

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister Primrose, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before — and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love. ( )

My review: I feel like a hypocrite, I always said  I would never read this book. Anyway, the book wasn't quite my taste, I don't understand why so many people love this book. I liked the book.

My rating (out of 5) 3 1/5

Top of the Feud Chain

title: Top of the Feud Chain

Author: Lisi Harrison

About: Alpha Academy: Where the betas get booted.

Skye Hamilton
For Skye, breaking boys' hearts is easier than one-two-plie. But if she hurts emo-freak Sydney, Shira will send her packing. Skye's only choice? Make him dump her first! But how can she convince robo-Romeo she's not his Juliet? 

Charlie Deery
Charlie's brilliant brain designed almost everything on Alpha Island, but her broken heart could never get over Darwin Brazille. Now she has a chance to get him back. But to say hello to true love, she may have to say buh-bye to her friendship with Allie A...

Allie A. Abbot
After being exposed as an Allie J. imposter, Allie A. is as worthless as a five time markdown on the clearance shoe rack. But the real stain on her suede bootie? She still hasn't found her talent. And with girls leaving faster than you can say "Beta", will Allie A. be the next to go?

If at first you don't succeed, you're not an Alpha.

My review: This is the last book in the Alphas series and believe me it has quite a shocking finish! The twist at the end just comes out of nowhere! I really enjoyed this book!

title: Wither

author: Lauren Destefano

about: What if you knew exactly when you would die? 
Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb — males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out. 
When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape — to find her twin brother and go home. 
But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limited time she has left. (I got this from )

my review: This book had me appalled and yet wanting more! I think the point of this book was to have you hatting the house and Leiden and Vaught I however only hate Vaught. I can't wait for the second book! 

my rating: 4 and 1/2 (out of 5)

Random Rant: Twilight


Yes Twilight is a book/ movie loved by teenage (and grown up) girls over the world!
Some may call it stupid and others may call it the bestest thing ever invented! I call it an awesome book with okay character which was ruined by the movie biz.
The actors were not the best (sorry guys) but I did think it was cool the first time I saw it (before I had finished the book) so yes.
I read the books in the time between November 2008- May 2009 when in the 5th grade the first real time I enjoyed reading! So I owe Meyers a big thanks for getting me started on reading.
The Twilight saga is good, speaking of sagas I have no idea what that means so here is the definition I found on  SAGA: any narrative or legend of heroic exploits.
See we learn something new every day! Well I have nothing else to say so bye!
