The DUFF by Kody Keplinger Review!!

The DuffSeventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn’t think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her “Duffy,” she throws her Coke in his face.
But things aren’t so great at home right now. Desperate for a distraction, Bianca ends up kissing Wesley. And likes it. Eager for escape, she throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with Wesley.
Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out that Wesley isn’t such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she’s falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.

Sweet baby Jesus!! I so did not expect this book to be so good! I had heard of this before but I really didn't read it until I saw the movie trailer and said "I can't watch this movie until I read the book"! 
  This book spoke to me so much! I absolutely loved Bianca with all my heart and soul! I felt that her character while very cynical was likeable. I really related to her character and with how done she was with high school in general. I think that we have all been Bianca at some point in life.
  Wesley Rush was such a jerk that I was so prepared to hate him but damn my soft heart because I ended up loving him so much. Wesley's relationship with Bianca was so unconventional when they started out but I totally saw their relationship development coming from a mile away.
  This whole book gave me such a realistic 80's high school movie vibe so I loved it! The book didn't gloss over the nasty parts of being a teenager which so many other books do. This book is a great recommendation for teens to read. I hope the upcoming movie does it justice.

ShatteredTrinity, Connor, and Caleb are trying to stay under the radar, holed up in an abandoned West Texas farmhouse. Their only problem is Emmy: a baby dragon that's growing like crazy. When Emmy is caught on tape and the video goes viral, they find themselves on the run again. Their only hope comes from an old map leading to a man who has come from the future to help them. But with the government hot on their heels and Caleb's growing addiction to spending time in the Nether world, will they be able to reach him in time? And will keeping Emmy safe end up being too high a price for Trinity to pay?

She has taken my babies and put them through hell again! 
Also the new characters are fantastic but I AM STILL WARY OF THEM ALL. 
You know I thought that I would like Connor a little bit more in this book but nope.
 not one bit. 
I am worried deeply for my baby Caleb because he is not ok and probably needs therapy! THE FLASHBACKS, GUYS!
Trinity was in between a rock and a hard place this entire book, I feel really bad for her. 
I just want all my babies happy.. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK
It's a thrilling sequel to Scorched and I am so excited for everyone to read it!

ARC REVIEW: Get Even by Gretchen McNeil

Get EvenBree Deringer, Olivia Hayes, Kitty Wei, and Margot Mejia have nothing in common. At least that's what they'd like the students and administrators of their elite private school to think. The girls have different goals, different friends, and different lives, but they share one very big secret: They're all members of Don't Get Mad, a secret society that anonymously takes revenge on the school's bullies, mean girls, and tyrannical teachers.
But when their latest target ends up dead with a blood-soaked "DGM" card in his hands, the girls realize that they're not as anonymous as they thought—and that someone now wants revenge on them.
As the unlikely group searches for the killer, they also uncover secrets and lies that rock their tenuous friendship to the core. Soon the clues are piling up, the police are closing in . . . and everyone has something to lose.

Guys, this book was so beautiful *tear*. I am all for an all girl revenge group and this was just what was needed. I mean, sure, they have issues but RELUCTANT FRIENDSHIP. 
Gretchen McNeil never disappoints ever and I am so  happy with this book. The plot develops wonderfully and Gretchen did wonderful with showing all these girls. The girls had so much character development throughout the whole book!!
I can't wait for Get Dirty!

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

Beauty QueensSurvival. Of the fittest.
The fifty contestants in the Miss Teen Dream Pageant thought this was going to be a fun trip to the beach, where they could parade in their state-appropriate costumes and compete in front of the cameras. But sadly, their airplane had another idea, crashing on a desert island and leaving the survivors stranded with little food, little water, and practically no eyeliner.
What's a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program - or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan - or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up?

 I have no words for the perfection that this book was. I'm kidding I have a lot of words.. 
Ok, let's be honest when I started reading it I thought it was going to kill my brain cells. To be honest, some of my brain cells died with the character's priorities on the island. 
This book is something that 10 year old me needed and I am so mad with myself for not reading it earlier. 
Beauty Queens is a beautifully written novel with such a fantastic message for girls and anyone else if you can read between the lines.
I love this books and you all need to go worship Libba Bray!

Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

Catching JordanWhat girl doesn't want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn't just surrounded by hot guys, though–she leads them as the captain and quarterback of her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys and that's just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university.
But everything she's ever worked for is threatened when Ty Green moves to her school. Not only is he an amazing QB, but he's also amazingly hot. And for the first time, Jordan's feeling vulnerable. Can she keep her head in the game while her heart's on the line?

I have a lot of feels over this book. I heard of this author before so I picked up this book at the library. SOMEONE GO HIGH-FIVE PAST ALEX. This book took my heart and did a touchdown with it. I could not have loved this book more that I already do.
If I didn't have a thing against sports of any kind, I would want to be Jordan. Alas, I will stick to just reading about her. She was this tough football player with a low tolerance of girly things. I loved the relationship she had with her team and I will totally be stealing her comebacks. Reading about Jordan finally being a teenage girl and experiencing stuff made me cry.
(I'm serious, I think like three neighborhoods heard my wails of despair.....)
Ty, I really have mixed feelings about you. I pity you but you are also the type of overbearing, controlling and jerkish boy that I spend my days avoiding. Contrary to popular belief, I do have a heart so I did feel really bad for Ty when he told Jordan about his family. Just not the boy for me. 
(Thank God, says my mother. She is standing behind me while I wail over this book)
Henry, you are a god amongst high school football players and I really want one of you.  I think that realizing that he had feelings for Jordan blew my mind but made complete sense. I am all for the best friends are soul mates campaign. I just wanted to hug him, slap him and maybe clone him.
JJ and Carter are some of the best side characters EVER. They can be man-w all they want as long as they keep being stand-up protective friends. I just reallllllyyy loved them, guys. 
(I want a football team now)
All in all, this book deserves a freaking Oscar and everyone should read it because I'm still crying

Speechless by Hannah Harrington

SpeechlessEveryone knows that Chelsea Knot can't keep a secret
Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed.
Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she's ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.
But there's strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she's done. If only she can forgive herself.

I really loved this book, guys! I loved how the author approached the topic of gossip and the popular cliques. I think that the author approached Chelsea's fall from grace very well and she showed a whole new side of people. Chelsea was not a good person at the beginning of this book but watching how she picked up the pieces of herself was very well put together. 
 Her vow of silence was something new that really made me want to see how this book ended. The ways that she would get back at the jocks in her silent matter was something that I loved!!
Oh, the group at the diner makes my little heart sing. I just loved the whole forgiveness process that the group went through with Chelsea. 
I loved the side characters as well and I felt that every character would make you love them or hate them!

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson Review!

Speak  "Speak up for yourself—we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless, outcast, because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. As time passes, she becomes increasingly isolated and practically stops talking altogether. Only her art class offers any solace, and it is through her work on an art project that she is finally able to face what really happened at that terrible party: she was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. Her healing process has just begun when she has another violent encounter with him. But this time Melinda fights back, refuses to be silent, and thereby achieves a measure of vindication. In Laurie Halse Anderson's powerful novel, an utterly believable heroine with a bitterly ironic voice delivers a blow to the hypocritical world of high school. She speaks for many a disenfranchised teenager while demonstrating the importance of speaking up for oneself.

Speak is a haunting, sad story about a girl who survives rape and has no one to trust. I am going to thank my English teacher, Mrs. Mays for giving me this book and telling me that it was a good age for me to read it. I could have read this before and not have gotten the message or what was happening. I have met people who are survivors and I can try to help.

Melinda is a typical teenage girl in how she talks but she has many issues that she has to deal with. No friends, No life, and parents who don't try to understand her. She has to deal with High School but how she even tried is my surprise. Melinda has to deal with seeing her rapist and it hurts to see her go through this. The part where it almost happens again is terrifying to both Melinda and the read but she gets the courage to stop it.
    This book shows how difficult it is for Rape survivors and how we can try to help them.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman Review!

If I StayIn the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen ­year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces- to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heartwrenchingly beautiful, this will change the way you look at life, love, and family. Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time

 If I Stay is a haunting read that will stay with you days after you finish. This book hit me hard because I identified with Mia, her family reminded me of my family and I felt their loss deep in my soul. I sobbed hours after finished and it took cuddling with little bro to calm down. This book is difficult to read but so worth it.

The characters were all so likable and fantastic which makes my heart hurt. Mia is a teenager with her life ahead of her and her out-of-body experience is terrifying. Teddy, her mom and dad were big parts of her family and having to read the happy flashbacks makes it so much worse because you realize that there won't be anymore happy moments. 
Adam was so lovable and adorable. He and his dramatic gestures to see her were all around painful. He was so heart-broken that you could feel his pain. Her family and friends were so good to have in the book because you saw that they wouldn't blame her if she left. The words her grandfather said to her hit me hard and I could not shake them.

I lost any semblance of composure when she found out Teddy died because I have a little brother that same age. If I had to live without him or my parents would not be a life. I don't know if i would stay like Mia did because without my family there would be no me. I dread seeing how she has to go through life now but she chose to live. I don't want to see her regret it.
