Juliet Immortal
Stacey Jay
13th September 2011



Goodreads summary:

"These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume."
—Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

The most tragic love story in history . . .

Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Title: The Host
Author: Stephenie Meyer
Pulbished by: Sphere
Age Group: Young-adult
Hardcover: 617
Challenge: Howarts Reading Challenge 2011



Rating: 5- Amazing!! I want to read it again!

Goodreads summary:

Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves - Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, The Host is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

Review:

This novel was very nearly a ten for me, but it just didn’t make it up there. I know some of you who are reading this are going to hate me for what I’m going to say but anyway, I love Stephenie Meyer’s work. Her writing style phenomenal and this book is no exception.

Like I said before this book was very nearly a ten and the reason that it didn’t make it was because of the first 100 or so pages before Wanda finds the cave. It just seemed to drag on a bit for me, but once it got past that part I think that it was one of Stephenie’s best work.

The characters stuck with me throughout the entire book they were just all so fleshed out, I loved how the characters grew and also how they surprised me in many ways. I’m not going to go through what I thought of all the characters that had an impact on me because we would be here all day and that just shows how much of an impact this book had on me. But these are just some stayed with me: Wanda and Melanie they were just so different and for me that made their story even better, they were almost complete opposites. Jared and Ian: I just couldn’t decide who I loved more, they both had my heart.

The love triangle was intense, it kept me glued to the page and I was more than happy with the result. This novel make me smile, laugh, cry, be happy, be sad and so many other emotions, it was just so phenomenal.

Fairy Bad Day
Amanda Ashby
Goodreads

Goodreads summary:

My life seriously couldn’t get any worse.

First, my rightful designation of dragon slayer is STOLEN right out from under me by Curtis Green. Sure, he’s really cute, but that doesn’t give him an excuse.

On top of that, I am assigned to slay fairies. I know what you’re thinking—how hard could it be, right? Wrong! These menacing beasts with their tiny hipster clothes and mocking sarcasm love taunting me. And they won’t STOP!

But the thing that tops my list of stuff to ruin my day? That would be the GIANT KILLER FAIRY that I have to hunt down and slay because I am the only one who can see it. There is someone who can help me. Unfortunately…it’s Curtis.


It’s going to be a fairy bad day.

Book Blogger Hop (#13) & Follow Friday (#14)

Book Blogger Hop

Time for Blogger Hop from Crazy for Books

I've done Book blogger hop a couple and I like it! I love following other peoples book blogs and looking what they think about new and older releases. It's a great way to get out there and meet new people who share the same interests as you.

This weeks question: "If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?"

My answer:
There are many series that I would love to be physically put into, but if I had to choose one I would have to say the Night World series by L.J. Smith because the Night World that she has created is just so cool!!! :P



.....................................................................................



Follow Friday is an opportunity to discover and follow other book related blogs! Want to join? Check it out at Parajunkee

This weeks question: give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.

My answer:

1) Most of the books on my bookselve are in my to be read pile.

2) Every time I finish a book I start reading one and then put it back and I do that about five times untill I find the book that I want to read next.

3) I use almost ANYTHING as a bookmark, I don't actually think that I have anything marking my books that can be called a bookmark. I even have a hairdressing leaflet from when I went to Egypt two years ago with my mother as a bookmark!

4) I hate it when people bend the pages in a book to mark them! I mentally cringe at the site!

5) I have this starnge habbit of reading the last couple of lines at the end of the book when i've just start reading it, but not enough to ruin the ending.

Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Title: Across the Universe
Author: Beth Revis
Pulbished by: Razorbill
Age Group: Young-adult
Hardcover: 398
Challenge: 2011 Debut Author Challenge
Howarts Reading Challenge 2011
2011- Young Adult Reading Challenge



Rating: 5- Amazing!! I want to read it again!

Goodreads summary:

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.

Review:

I don’t normally read science-fiction to be honest, but what drew me to this book (except for the beautiful cover) was love, secrets and murder. That and the summary just drew me in. I had no idea what to expect when I picked up this book but when I finished it it was better than I could ever have imagined it to be.

That first chapter where Amy was being frozen stuck we me the most through the book. It was so detailed that I could almost see it happening and for me that was just an epic first chapter. Plus if it was really I would never want to be frozen like that!

As the book unfolded and the secrets started to get revealed and I just couldn’t put it down and I’m not going to go into detail but that was also an epic ending!
I actually felt like I was in the ship myself by how much detail Beth put in the book about the ship, but the map did come in handy.

I loved the characters they were well rounded and I felt like I knew them. Amy and Elder were both easy to relate to, fleshed out characters and you could feel their struggles with being on the ship. I loved watching them grow as the book went on. I also loved how the story was also told from both Elder and Amy’s perspective.

But the case is a mystery: no body has been found, and Alison's condition is proving difficult to diagnose.

This is the first of two Jennifer Echols books that I am placing on this list today and this book sounds awsome!!



Forget You
Jennifer Echols
Goodreads

Goodreads summary:

WHY CAN’T YOU CHOOSE WHAT YOU FORGET . . . AND WHAT YOU REMEMBER? There’s a lot Zoey would like to forget. Like how her father has knocked up his twenty-four- year old girlfriend. Like Zoey’s fear that the whole town will find out about her mom’s nervous breakdown. Like darkly handsome bad boy Doug taunting her at school. Feeling like her life is about to become a complete mess, Zoey fights back the only way she knows how, using her famous attention to detail to make sure she’s the perfect daughter, the perfect student, and the perfect girlfriend to ultra-popular football player Brandon. But then Zoey is in a car crash, and the next day there’s one thing she can’t remember at all—the entire night before. Did she go parking with Brandon, like she planned? And if so, why does it seem like Brandon is avoiding her? And why is Doug—of all people— suddenly acting as if something significant happened between the two of them? Zoey dimly remembers Doug pulling her from the wreck, but he keeps referring to what happened that night as if it was more, and it terrifies Zoey to admit how much is a blank to her. Controlled, meticulous Zoey is quickly losing her grip on the all-important details of her life—a life that seems strangely empty of Brandon, and strangely full of Doug.

..........
Second Jennifer Echols book on the list and I love the cover for this and I love the colour of here eyes and her piercing! Sound AWSOME!!!!



Going Too Far
Jennifer Echols
Goodreads

Goodreads summary:

HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO?

All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far...and almost doesn't make it back.

John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge -- and over....

..........
I love Jack the Ripper (not in a strange I'm a killing way, but the history of him) and this just sounds like it's going to be an interesting read!!!!

I've done Book blogger hop a couple and I like it! I love following other peoples book blogs and looking what they think about new and older releases. It's a great way to get out there and meet new people who share the same interests as you.

This weeks question: "Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"

My answer:
I tried to read more than one book at the time but I think it easier to just read one to be honest because of two reaseons 1) I can just focus on the one story 2) when I'm reading more than one book I think it's taking away time that I could be reading the other book and then it takes longer to read the noth books.

This weeks question: How did you come up with your blog name?

My answer:
I can't actually remeber how the entire blog name came to be. But I can remeber that I wanted the word Book in it (very original right?) and then I just came across the words Geek and Central and for me they all came perfectly together. And that is how my blog name became 'Book Geek Central'. Kind of random really.

Goodreads summary:

Now is not the time for Carmen to fall in love. Two weeks before the most important violin competition of her career, she has bigger things to worry about—like growing out of that suffocating “child prodigy” label, and not disappointing her mother. But it isn’t just the wrong time. It’s the wrong guy. Jeremy is Carmen’s most talented rival, and according to her mother, he’s only interested in one thing: winning.

He isn’t the only one.

Carmen is so desperate to win she takes anti-anxiety drugs to control performance nerves. But what started a year ago as an easy fix is now a hungry addiction. Her mother insists now is not the time to quit, but Carmen is sick of not feeling anything on stage and even more sick of doing what she’s told.

When the darker side of the classical music industry and her mother's ambition collide, Carmen must choose between her career and her love for music.

Author: Jackson Pearce
Pulbished by: HaperTeen
Age Group: Young-adult
Hardcover: 304
Challenge: Off the Shelf
Howarts Reading Challenge 2011
2011- Young Adult Reading Challenge



Rating: 5- Amazing!! I want to read it again!

Goodreads summary:

Ever since Viola's boyfriend broke up with her, she has spent her days silently wishing—to have someone love her again and, more importantly, to belong again—until one day she inadvertently summons a young genie out of his world and into her own. He will remain until she makes three wishes.

Jinn is anxious to return home, but Viola is terrified of wishing, afraid she will not wish for the right thing, the thing that will make her truly happy. As the two spend time together, the lines between master and servant begin to blur, and soon Jinn can't deny that he's falling for Viola. But it's only after Viola makes her first wish that she realizes she's in love with Jinn as well . . . and that if she wishes twice more, he will disappear from her life—and her world—forever.

Jackson Pearce spins a magical tale about star-crossed lovers, what it means to belong . . . and how important it is to be careful what you wish for.

Review:

From the first chapter of this novel I was hooked. This is the first novel by Jackson that I have read and I loved every second of it. It’s was just so funny and just genius there aren’t enough words that I can think of to describe how much I loved this book.

I loved Viola she was so easy to relate to and if she was in my school I would have wanted her to be my best friend, I could just see myself in her and I think that there was one thing or another in her personality that everyone can relate to.

Don’t think that I forgot about Ginn I loved him and he was so cute and protective when he figured out that his feeling for Viola and that just made me love him even more. All the characters were well rounded and it was as if they were jumping off the page.

It was beautifully written and this novel for me was just wow.

Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have)
Sarah Mlynowski
June 21st 2011



Goodreads summary:

If given the opportunity, what sixteen-year-old wouldn’t jump at the chance to move in with a friend and live parent-free? Although, maybe “opportunity” isn’t the right word, since April had to tell her dad a tiny little untruth to make it happen (see #1: “Lied to Our Parents”). But she and her housemate, Vi, are totally responsible and able to take care of themselves. How they ended up “Skipping School” (#3), “Throwing a Crazy Party” (#8), “Buying a Hot Tub” (#4), and, um, “Harboring a Fugitive” (#7) at all is kind of a mystery to them.

Hey guys! I'm so sorry that i've only added two(2) posts this week but I have a good reason why it happened. I had three science exams on Friday and all week I 'thought' that the internet servise was down and my mother even told me that her bosses was too. But what my mother had really down was she removed one wire out from the back of the internet box thingy which connected to the main computer, so it was showing that there was no internet, but it wasn't showing that there was any internet either. She did all that so I would revise. So i'm sorry again guys and there is also no 'In My Mailbox' post from me this week becuase I only got one book and I am going to use that one is my video post next week.

Moonlight can totally change your life. And it all starts so simply. You. Him. The moon. You’re toast.

Okay, so maybe Shelby has made a few mistakes with boys lately. But her stepmother totally overreacts when she packs Shelby off to brat camp. Suddenly, it’s good-bye, prom dress; hello, hiking boots.

Things start looking up, though, when Shelby meets fellow camper (and son of a rock star!) Austin Bridges III. But soon she realizes there’s more to Austin than crush material—his family has a dark secret, and he wants Shelby’s help guarding it....

I love Pride and Predjudice by Jane Austen and I love retellings of Pride and Prejudice!

Goodreads summary:

At Coral Tree Prep in Los Angeles, who your parents are can make or break you. Case in point:

• As the son of Hollywood royalty, Derek Edwards is pretty much prince of the school—not that he deigns to acknowledge many of his loyal subjects.

• As the daughter of the new principal, new-girl-on-campus Elise Benton isn’t exactly on everyone’s must-sit-next-to-at-lunch list.

When Elise’s beautiful sister catches the eye of the prince’s best friend, Elise gets to spend a lot of time with Derek, making her the envy of every girl. Except she refuses to fall for any of his rare smiles and instead warms up to his enemy, the surprisingly charming social outcast Webster Grant. But in this hilarious tale of fitting in and flirting, not all snubs are undeserved, not all celebrity brats are bratty, and pride and prejudice can get in the way of true love for only so long.
