Hopefully Back for Good!!


Hi everyone, if anyone is still out there that is. If their is anyone still viewing this blog then I want to say that I'm slowly going to be coming back! I want to try and get this back up to a working blog again, I've missed the blogging world so much and I look at my blog that hasn't been updated in ages and I think that I put all that effort in to see my baby grow and I've just abandoned it. After all this time there must be a lot of dust settling on this blog so I am going to start cleaning up and getting it running again!! Now enough of me rambling on and on here are some of the changes I plan on doing:

1) Making a new twitter account since my blog one ended up becoming a personal account and you don't want to hear about my crap life you want to hear about books! (This will be coming soon and a post will be added to let you know what the new account is called etc)

2) I want to add more of my own memes to the blog I always tend to be following other peoples! It's not a  bad thing but I want to make Book Geek Central it's own agin. (I have some ideas in mind and want to have them on the blog in the new year)

These are the only two I have so far because a lot I want to put in my New Years resolutions which is coming very soon!

I hope you all haven't given up on me and this blog yet because I haven't given up on it!

Waiting on Wednesday (#47)



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

I love Simone Elkeles and I cant wait to get my hands on this book!

Wild Cards (Wild Cards #1)
Simone Elkeles
September 24th 2013

After getting kicked out of boarding school, bad boy Derek Fitzpatrick has no choice but to live with his ditzy stepmother while his military dad is deployed. Things quickly go from bad to worse when he finds out she plans to move them back to her childhood home in Illinois. Derek’s counting the days before he can be on his own, and the last thing he needs is to get involved with someone else’s family drama.

Ashtyn Parker knows one thing for certain--people you care about leave without a backward glance. A football scholarship would finally give her the chance to leave. So she pours everything into winning a state championship, until her boyfriend and star quarterback betrays them all by joining their rival team. Ashtyn needs a new game plan, but it requires trusting Derek—someone she barely knows, someone born to break the rules. Is she willing to put her heart on the line to try and win it all?

Waiting on Wednesday (#46)



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

I can not wait for the this book! I loved 'The Immortal Rules' so much and I can't wait to read what happens next!

The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2)
Julie Kagawa
May 3rd 2013
In Allison Sekemoto's world, there is one rule left: Blood calls to blood

She has done the unthinkable: died so that she might continue to live. Cast out of Eden and separated from the boy she dared to love, Allie will follow the call of blood to save her creator, Kanin, from the psychotic vampire Sarren. But when the trail leads to Allie's birthplace in New Covington, what Allie finds there will change the world forever-and possibly end human and vampire existence.

There's a new plague on the rise, a strain of the Red Lung virus that wiped out most of humanity generations ago-and this strain is deadly to humans and vampires alike. The only hope for a cure lies in the secrets Kanin carries, if Allie can get to him in time.

Allison thought that immortality was forever. But now, with eternity itself hanging in the balance, the lines between human and monster will blur even further, and Allie must face another choice she could never have imagined having to make.

Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

"I've left some clues for you.
If you want them, turn the page.
If you don't, put the book back on the shelf, please."

So begins the latest whirlwind romance from the bestselling authors of Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? Or are Dash and Lily only destined to trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York? Could their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions? Or will they be a cosmic mismatch of disastrous proportions?


4- Great!

I read this book over Christmas because it was quite short that I could fit around all my Christmas shopping. Dash and Lilly’s Book of Dares was so easy to read and get lost in, I was pulled in from the first paragraph and it even put me in the mood for Christmas.
Title: Dash and Lily's Book of Dares
Author: Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
Published by: Ember
Age Group: Young-adult
Paperback: 260
Source: bought

Review:

I loved the idea of the book of dares that Lily had created within the book and I for one know that even though I have a love for books and puzzles I would not be able to solve what was in that notebook. And I think that because I couldn’t figure out that part of the book it kept me guessing on what was going to happen next. Plus this book was just so cute! And like I said put me in the perfect Christmas mood which made it even cuter! And all the cute characters! And if you haven’t guessed I thought everything about this book was cute.

I loved how this book was told by both Dash and Lily’s point of view for two reasons, for one (and yes I know this isn’t the best reason but…) I found that if I was reading too much of one characters point of view I found myself slightly skimming over some paragraphs, and then the second reason was because (and this one is better) Dash and Lily were such different characters and it was just so much fun reading their different views on the same events.

I really enjoyed this book overall even though I may have skim read over a paragraph or two but this book was perfect to get me into the reading and Christmas mood plus (and yes I am going to say it again) this book was just so cute. There were good characters and a fun romance so pick this book up if you are looking for a light enjoyable read.

Plot 4/5
Character 4/5
Cover 4/5
Ending 5/5

Waiting on Wednesday (#45)




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

I love this cover it so colourful! The summary sounds really interesting as well.

Taken
Erin Bowman
April 16th 2013

There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends…and he’s gone.

They call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.

Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?

Waiting on Wednesday (#44)




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

I think that this book looks really interesting and I'd love to know what the boyfriend app does.

The Boyfiend App
Katie Sise
30th April 2013

In The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise, super-smart, somewhat geeky Audrey McCarthy can’t wait to get out of high school. Her father’s death and the transformation of her one-time BFF, Blake Dawkins, into her worst nightmare have her longing for the new start college will bring.

But college takes money. So Audrey decides she has to win the competition for the best app designed by a high schooler—and the $200,000 that comes with it. She develops something she calls the Boyfriend App, and suddenly she’s the talk of the school and getting kissed by the hottest boys around. But can the Boyfriend App bring Audrey true love?
