Review: Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis

Stitching SnowStitching Snow by R.C. Lewis

Publication Date: October 14, 2014
Page Count: 336
Published by: Disney-Hyperion
Source: eArc received from publisher in exchange for an honest review

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Princess Snow is missing.

Her home planet is filled with violence and corruption at the hands of King Matthias and his wife as they attempt to punish her captors. The king will stop at nothing to get his beloved daughter back—but that’s assuming she wants to return at all.

Essie has grown used to being cold. Temperatures on the planet Thanda are always sub-zero, and she fills her days with coding and repairs for the seven loyal drones that run the local mines.

When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realizes that Dane’s arrival was far from accidental, and she’s pulled into the heart of a war she’s risked everything to avoid. With the galaxy’s future—and her own—in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival.

Somehow, when I started reading this book, I didn't realize it was a Fairytale retelling. All I knew was that I was excited to read it, and I was not disappointed.

First off, let me say that I had Star Wars in my head for the entire book. That's a good thing, because I have always loved Star Wars. (And I'm of a certain {ahem} age, that when I say Star Wars, I mean the actual Star Wars movie. None of that 'Episode' crap.) Straight up Star Wars images in my head, from Thanda to Windsong, and from cargo transports to hovercrafts. And I thought Dane made a perfect Han Solo!!! Just sayin'!

The drones (7 of them!!!! NOW I get it) had so much personality and were so enjoyable. The only images I could conjure up were of R2-D2 and C-3PO. But shouldn't they have been called something other than drones? A drone is a pilotless aircraft. Unfortunately, I believe that George Lucas holds a trademark on the term "droid", so the author couldn't use that word. Another word (like maybe robot?) would have worked so much better. Yes, this may be nit-picky of me, but it was a huge sticking point for me throughout the book.

I loved how strong, intelligent, and kick ass Essie was. When we first meet her she is very standoffish and keeps mostly to herself. We soon learn that her feistiness and attitude was just her way of protecting herself. She was incredibly resourceful and great at computer coding, or 'stitching.' She used her knowledge to program 7 'drones' that help in the mines on Thanda, the cold and lonely planet that she lives on. Even though she is the only woman on the planet, she's more than capable of taking care of herself.

It was a little difficult for me to start liking Dane. My feelings for him ran hot and cold because I couldn't tell what his motives were. I had a hard time deciding whether or not he was a good guy. But as the story progressed, and we find out more about Dane and his background, I found myself liking him more and more.

The world building was fantastic, and the sci-fi, fantasy, and futuristic elements were very believable. The plot provided ample amounts of drama and fairytale romance. There was also plenty of action and suspense, as well as many twists and turns and secrets revealed. It had everything you could want in a fairytale retelling!

Even though it took me a little while to start really getting into the story, I thought this was a very entertaining book with enough mystery and action to hold my interest.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Waiting On Wednesday (153) I Was Here by Gayle Forman

 photo WoW3a.jpg

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

Wednesday is my absolute favorite day of the week because I get to share the books that I am super excited about and can't wait to read.

 photo IWasHere_zpsd7269cf6.jpg

Expected publication: January 27th 2015 by Viking Juvenile

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Cody and Meg were inseparable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until . . . they weren’t anymore.

When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.

I Was Here is Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.

I can't wait to read this! Just because it's Gayle Forman and she's awesome and all that.

What are you waiting on this week? Pretty, pretty please will you leave a link to your WoW post so it's easier for me to visit? I return all comments, and I revisit all blogs from the previous week's WoWs, so it makes things so much easier to just click on a link! Thanks so much.

About The Book


Loop
Loop #1
Author: Karen Akins
Release Date: October 21, 2014
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Genre: Young Adult

Synopsis:

At a school where Quantum Paradox 101 is a required course and history field trips are literal, sixteen year-old time traveler Bree Bennis excels…at screwing up.

After Bree botches a solo midterm to the 21st century by accidentally taking a boy hostage (a teensy snafu), she stands to lose her scholarship. But when Bree sneaks back to talk the kid into keeping his yap shut, she doesn’t go back far enough. The boy, Finn, now three years older and hot as a solar flare, is convinced he’s in love with Bree, or rather, a future version of her that doesn’t think he’s a complete pain in the arse. To make matters worse, she inadvertently transports him back to the 23rd century with her.

Once home, Bree discovers that a recent rash of accidents at her school are anything but accidental. Someone is attacking time travelers. As Bree and her temporal tagalong uncover seemingly unconnected clues—a broken bracelet, a missing data file, the art heist of the millennium—that lead to the person responsible, she alone has the knowledge to piece the puzzle together. Knowledge only one other person has. Her future self.

But when those closest to her become the next victims, Bree realizes the attacker is willing to do anything to stop her. In the past, present, or future.

 photo MyHeart_zpsdffe1da9.jpg

Expected publication: February 10th 2015 by Balzer & Bray/Harperteen

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A stunning novel about the transformative power of love, perfect for fans of Jay Asher and Laurie Halse Anderson.

Sixteen-year-old physics nerd Aysel is obsessed with plotting her own death. With a mother who can barely look at her without wincing, classmates who whisper behind her back, and a father whose violent crime rocked her small town, Aysel is ready to turn her potential energy into nothingness.

There's only one problem: she's not sure she has the courage to do it alone. But once she discovers a website with a section called Suicide Partners, Aysel's convinced she's found her solution--Roman, a teenage boy who's haunted by a family tragedy, is looking for a partner. Even though Aysel and Roman have nothing in common, they slowly start to fill in each other's broken lives. But as their suicide pact becomes more concrete, Aysel begins to question whether she really wants to go through with it. Ultimately, she must choose between wanting to die or trying to convince Roman to live so they can discover the potential of their energy together.

I've been seeing this one around a lot. It totally sounds like it will be an emotional read. Even though I'll probably cry, I think I'm up for it.

FL Amazon

Fractured Lines by Jen McLaughlin was released today! This is an adult, standalone novel that is part of the Out of Line series. Be sure to check out the links below and the contest for some hand-made items by Jen!


FL_OutNow
BOOK SYNOPSIS:

The lines we once crossed so easily have widened and torn us apart…

Once upon a time I thought Finn and I would live happily ever after, but real life doesn't always have a happy ending. He's testing my trust, and I'm losing faith in the man I thought I'd spend the rest of my life with, and there’s nothing I can do to stop it. He’s the one I trusted to keep me safe, but now he’s the source of my greatest pain…

Forgiveness is fragile, and some fractures never fully heal...

One mistake—a slip in a moment of weakness—might cost me everything I've worked so hard for. The thing about trust is that it's a lot easier to lose than it is to build. Just as I'm about to give up and surrender to the demons from my past, an unexpected threat reminds me what I'm best at: protecting the woman I love. Whether or not she wants me, I will fight for Carrie and our daughter, and I will keep them safe—no matter the cost.

Even if I have to put my life and my heart on the line.

Review: Sway by Kat Spears

SwaySway by Kat Spears

Publication Date: September 16, 2014
Page Count: 320
Published by: St. Martin's Griffin
Source: Library

Synopsis from Goodreads:

In Kat Spears’s hilarious and often poignant debut, high school senior Jesse Alderman, or "Sway," as he’s known, could sell hell to a bishop. He also specializes in getting things people want---term papers, a date with the prom queen, fake IDs. He has few close friends and he never EVER lets emotions get in the way. For Jesse, life is simply a series of business transactions.

But when Ken Foster, captain of the football team, leading candidate for homecoming king, and all-around jerk, hires Jesse to help him win the heart of the angelic Bridget Smalley, Jesse finds himself feeling all sorts of things. While following Bridget and learning the intimate details of her life, he falls helplessly in love for the very first time. He also finds himself in an accidental friendship with Bridget’s belligerent and self-pitying younger brother who has cerebral palsy. Suddenly, Jesse is visiting old folks at a nursing home in order to run into Bridget, and offering his time to help the less fortunate, all the while developing a bond with this young man who idolizes him. Could the tin man really have a heart after all?

A Cyrano de Bergerac story with a modern twist, Sway is told from Jesse’s point of view with unapologetic truth and biting humor, his observations about the world around him untempered by empathy or compassion---until Bridget’s presence in his life forces him to confront his quiet devastation over a life-changing event a year earlier and maybe, just maybe, feel something again.

 photo picadillypink.png

I really, really wanted to like this book. But it turned out to be the second book I have read recently where I immediately disliked the protagonist, then spent the rest of the book trying to find something to like about him.

The protagonist, Jesse aka Sway, has an openness with his thoughts and feelings, but he has such disdain and contempt for others that he comes off as a major a**hole. He is uncaring and unfeeling, with no morals, and every single thing that he does is carefully thought out and planned to extract the most benefit to him. He lies and manipulates and is always looking out for only himself. Jesse starts getting to know Bridget in order to help Ken, who offers Jesse money in exchange for inside information so he can get Bridget to date him. Being around such a genuinely nice person like Bridget makes Jesse question himself and the choices he has made. As Jesse falls for Bridget, he begins to wonder if a guy like him can change and be worthy of her love.

I loved that Sway was told from a male's POV. Even though the story had a lot of Jesse's stream of conscious type writing, it didn't really help me understand him better. As it was, I found a lot of his behavior to be offensive, and I had a hard time truly understanding why he did the things he did.

This book is chock full of unlikable, cliché characters. Although I did like Pete, and I thought Joey was an interesting character, but there was too little time spent with her. I was extremely disappointed by the rampant drug use throughout, and the very questionable behavior exhibited by many of the characters.

It's unfortunate that the 'love story' was almost non-existent. The story was pretty far-fetched and unbelievable, and Jesse still needed a LOT of redeeming in my eyes. I thought the writing was just okay, the dialogue was clunky at times, and the plot was very thin. The ending wrapped up way too quickly and neatly for my taste. Overall, this was just an okay read that I wish I had enjoyed more than I did.

My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars

Review: Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley

Rites of PassageRites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley

Publication Date: September 9, 2014
Page Count: 416
Published by: Harper Teen
Source: eArc received from publisher in exchange for an honest review

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Sam McKenna’s never turned down a dare. And she's not going to start with the last one her brother gave her before he died.

So Sam joins the first-ever class of girls at the prestigious Denmark Military Academy. She’s expecting push-ups and long runs, rope climbing and mud-crawling. As a military brat, she can handle an obstacle course just as well as the boys. She's even expecting the hostility she gets from some of the cadets who don’t think girls belong there. What she’s not expecting is her fiery attraction to her drill sergeant. But dating is strictly forbidden and Sam won't risk her future, or the dare, on something so petty...no matter how much she wants him.

As Sam struggles to prove herself, she discovers that some of the boys don’t just want her gone—they will stop at nothing to drive her out. When their petty threats turn to brutal hazing, bleeding into every corner of her life, she realizes they are not acting alone. A decades-old secret society is alive and active… and determined to force her out.
At any cost.

Now time's running short. Sam must decide who she can trust...and choosing the wrong person could have deadly consequences.

 photo picadillypink.png

First, let me say that this book needs a sequel!! I need a sequel! This was beyond awesome as a stand alone, but I am SO in love with these characters that I need more of them. Please???? I don't even know if I can convey how insanely awesome this book is, because I'm overwhelmed with all kinds of feelings right now.

I really enjoyed the large cast of characters. There were quite a few bad (BAD) guys who I disliked, but there were SO many good characters that they overshadowed the bad. The protagonist, Sam, was so likable! She was strong, independent, determined, and stubborn to a fault. So of course I was rooting for her from the very first page! Drill Stamm was... swoonworthy. There, I said it. I know the girls are going to go crazy for this guy. (I would go crazy too, if only I were 30 years younger!) He was such a stand up guy and so honorable, it would be hard not to like him.

The story was downright gritty and realistic, with an intensity that will have your emotions running high. It was written with such detail that I felt like I was right there at the academy with Sam and the guys. There was serious hard core stuff going on throughout the story, with a ramped up ending that will have you desperately turning the pages to find out what happens next. The forbidden love storyline was slow building and mostly on the backburner, but when it was in the forefront it was so angsty...and I do love me some angst!

I totally judged this book by it's cover, and I'm thrilled to say that it completely exceeded my expectations! I was so into the YA military stories that came out in 2012 and 2013. But this one, by far, was the best that I have read.

Rites of Passage really has a lot going for it. There was family intrigue, action, danger, friendship and romance. Everything came together so well in this book, and it just worked. Joy N. Hensley is an amazingly talented debut author, and I have to say that this is my favorite book of 2014! You really need to read this book. You won't be disappointed!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Waiting On Wednesday (151) Tear You Apart (Beau Rivage) by Sarah Cross

Wednesday is my absolute favorite day of the week because I get to share the books that I am super excited about and can't wait to read.

 photo TearYouApart_zps95d988ae.jpg

Expected publication: January 27th 2015 by Egmont

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Faced with a possible loophole to her "Snow White" curse, Viv goes underground, literally, to find the prince who's fated to rescue her. But is life safe in the Underworld worth the price of sacrificing the love that might kill her?

CAMEOS FROM FAVORITE CHARACTERS: Viv, who first appeared in Kill Me Softly trailed by her brooding boy-toy Henley, takes center stage in this new Beau Rivage tale. Other familiar characters including Blue and Jewel are back to help her defy her destiny.

A FRESH TAKE ON THE FAMILIAR: Drawing on "Snow White," "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," and "Rumpelstiltskin," Tear You Apart is very conscious of the way these stories have pervaded pop culture, twisting known tropes into an exciting new story that can stand on its own.
Synopsis from SarahCross.com:

A modern Snow White reimagining, in which a teen with a murderous stepmother is trapped in a dangerous game of love, jealousy, and hate with her best friend and lover, who is destined to decide if she lives or dies . . . until a mysterious prince from a strange Underworld offers her an escape.

I won't hesitate to admit that I had major problems with the first book in this series, Kill Me Softly, but I'm still willing to give this one a chance.

All About Finn from Fractured Lines by Jen McLaughlin with Giveaway

FL Amazon

Fractured Lines by Jen McLaughlin will be releasing October 14th, but first I have some exclusive content to share. Each week, FINNClub team members are sharing special details from the book, and series, in order to share their excitement for the new novel.

Today I have a post that is all about FINN!

FL_7days

Finn Coram
by Jen McLaughlin

As one reviewer put it, “Oh, Finn, Finn, Finn, Finn-ey, Finn, Finn.”

There’s just something about Finn from the OUT OF LINE series that makes female hearts go aflutter. Maybe it’s the fact that he was/is a Marine. Maybe it’s the Harley he rides. Maybe it’s the surfing. Or the fact that he can kick ass without even breaking a sweat.

I’m not sure what it is, but there’s just something that makes him irresistible to readers and myself alike. When I wrote their third book (which was planned to be the last) it was so bittersweet. Being in Finn’s head was just so much FUN. He’s protective, but daring. Sweet, but dominant. Hot, but sensitive.

When I thought we were done forever, I was sad, but okay with it. After the readers had finished, I got countless emails begging me to continue the story. I didn’t think it was possible, but then…it hit me. I could write Finn as an adult! And so FRACTURED LINES came into existence.

September Recap and October TBR

 photo Update3.jpg

To put it simply, the month of September sucked as far as reading goes. Big time. I need someone to tell me where the hell did the month go???? I feel like I accomplished nothing. I always have plans, and things to do, but somehow reading takes a backseat to everything else. Yes, yes, the kids' birthdays are more important than reading. But they are 17 and 20, so you'd think when I say 'Mommy wants to read now' they would get it and leave me alone. Don't get me wrong, I love my kidlets, but I need my escape time too! Must keep my sanity!!!!!

My October tbr is looking awesome! I'm looking forward to reading more, and enjoying what I read.

Waiting On Wednesday (150) Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker

 photo WoW3a.jpg

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

Wednesday is my absolute favorite day of the week because I get to share the books that I am super excited about and can't wait to read.

This is my 150th consecutive WoW post!!!!!

 photo BewareTheWild_zpse3ee0067.jpg

Expected publication: October 21st 2014 by HarperTeen

Synopsis from Goodreads:

It's an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp -- the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn't return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.

Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp's done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance -- and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her.

This debut novel is full of atmosphere, twists and turns, and a swoon-worthy romance.

Does anyone else think this book sounds awesome? I'm cautiously optimistic about the swoon-worthy romance, and I'm curious about what happened to Phin. And who the heck is Lenora May?

What are you waiting on this week?
