Sypnosis
Cath is obsess with the Simon Snow book series, too obsess, like REALLY obsess, super obsess, maniacly (pretty sure that's a word) obsess, a typical fangirl.

She has pillow, t-shirts, and even a fanfiction on the internet, that thousands of people read daily. Cath also have a twin who was also a major Simon Snow fangirl too, Wren.This fandom is what got them through their mum leaving.

Wren kind of got bored of or drifted off the Simon Snow fandom when they decided to go to college, but Cath hasn't and not ready to let go because that's just the kind of girl she is.

For college her sister didn't want to be room mates with her because she wanted to meet new friends but that wasn't Cath plan. Instead of having Wren as her college room buddy she got Reagan, a tough looking, acting kinda girl and her 'always seems to be around' boyfriend, Levi.

So the question is, can Cath survive

Oh and her dad is a bit cuckoo as well.

My Thoughts
(MINOR SPOILER)
I thought this was a great book.

 I like how Rainbow Rowell romances always build up through through the book... if that make sense. She's not like love at first sight or 'magnetic pull' or whatever, she actually build the relationship between Levi and Cath throughout the book.

This book is sooooo #relatable (to me anyway), not the fangirling bits though. Relatable because she feels the urge to post new chapters on FanFixx (Wattpad basicly) and how she doesn't like to move on.

This book is about coming of age, and moving on and I loveeeeeeee it.

The Program



Purchase at... (Links)


The Program by Suzanne Young

YA • Dystopia • Sci-fi • Romance


Summary 
Sloane knows better than to cry in front of anyone. With suicide now an international epidemic, one outburst could land her in The Program, the only proven course of treatment. Sloane’s parents have already lost one child; Sloane knows they’ll do anything to keep her alive. She also knows that everyone who’s been through The Program returns as a blank slate. Because their depression is gone—but so are their memories.

Under constant surveillance at home and at school, Sloane puts on a brave face and keeps her feelings buried as deep as she can. The only person Sloane can be herself with is James. He’s promised to keep them both safe and out of treatment, and Sloane knows their love is strong enough to withstand anything. But despite the promises they made to each other, it’s getting harder to hide the truth. They are both growing weaker. Depression is setting in. And The Program is coming for them.


...from Goodreads

The Program (The Program, #1)


My thoughts

Bad Thoughts
I though this book was amazing but I felt like Sloane always depends on someone to get through something? She uses James to get through her brother's death, Realm  to get through the Program and uses Roger to get her memories back. 

This is not a bad thought but I was kind of disappointed that Realm was a good guy, I kinda want him to like really betray Sloane, it'll make the story more... interesting? IDK guys.

Good Thoughts
All them feels.

This book was a very very very very great read. I felt super connected to the characters, like for example when Sloane does something, I will think 'Hey that's what I would do'. I felt her pain, her hapiness, her love for James and her loss. The author really develop the characters well, I could picture the characters in my mind (with the help of the cover....so much for using my imagination). Sometimes the story is just so overwhelming I just have to shut it and ignore it for 5 minutes.

I LOVE IT!

I honestly don't get the Epilog??? (Is that even how you spell it)

Echo Boy

Title
 Echo Boy

Author
Matt Haig

Other Info
Book format ~ Hardback, Library

Pages ~ 399

Summary ~ No Spoilers
This book was set in the future, where we (the 21st century people) are the oldies, weird, I know.

Audrey Castle's family is trying to be as technology free as possible especially her father. Her father hated the technology because he thinks that someday us humans will be at war with the Echos which are robots kind of things (robots = technology) but his brother, Alex Castle owns a company that makes this robot kind of things and other technologies too.

When Audrey's father hurted his legs in an accident, her family decided to buy an Echo... who kills both of Audrey's parent and was supposed to kill Audrey too, but of course she managed, but she was now super scared of Echos. So what made Alissa (the echo who murdered her parents) a murderer... or who?

Daniel, the Echo boy, is somehow connected to this Alissa and you know who else is? Alex Castle.

My Review (minor SPOILERS)
I like it.

It took me a while to get through this book, four - five days! I think it's because sometimes there's like the most irrelevant information... like, who cares how many hairs they got. It was kind of predictable ( I knew it was the uncle , I knew it ), and the characters were a bit stupid but okay. I felt like I really connected with Daniel but not so much with Audrey, she was scared for half of the friggin book, I mean girl grow up. I really like the plot of the book. Overall it was a good book.




3.8/5

Waiting on Wednesday #2



Title: Ash & Bramble by Sarah Prineas

Expected Publication: !5 September 2015

Sypnosis by Goodreads : When the glass slipper just doesn’t fit…



The tale of Cinderella has been retold countless times. But what you know is not the true story.

Pin has no recollection of who she is or how she got to the Godmother’s fortress. She only knows that she is a Seamstress, working day in and out to make ball gowns fit for fairy tales. But she longs to forsake her backbreaking servitude and dares to escape with the brave young Shoemaker.

Pin isn’t free for long before she’s captured again and forced to live the new life the Godmother chooses for her—a fairy tale story, complete with a charming prince—instead of finding her own happily ever after.

Sarah Prineas’s bold fairy tale retelling is a dark and captivating world where swords are more fitting than slippers, young shoemakers are just as striking as princes, and a heroine is more than ready to rescue herself before the clock strikes midnight.

Liebster Award




Thank you for nominating me BloggityBlog and I am Shelfless

Eleanor & Park


Title 
Eleanor and Park

Author
Rainbow Rowell


Book Format
Paperback

Sypnosis from Goodreads
Eleanor... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.

Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.

Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.




My Review ~ May Contain SPOILERS
... speechless

Umm, second favourite book now. This is such a good book because it's realistic and a page turner. So I was originally reading BETA by Rachel Cohn and omg that book literally took me ages(still haven't even reach half of it) to read, so then I started reading this and yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

I love the characters, they kinda remind me of the people in that Daniel's Promposal Video, I don't know. Ughh this book is perfection, highly recommended.

What do you think the last three words were?? I think it was "Nothing ever ends" from Watchmen because they mention it(in the book).

My Rating
6/5

Waiting on Wednesday

I know it's not a Wednesday, and I'm a bit slow but oh well...


Title: Chasing Impossible by Katie Mcgarry

Expected Publication: July 1st 2015

Sypnosis from GoodreadsTough and independent, 17-year-old Abby lets very few people into her inner circle. It’s common knowledge in her Kentucky town that she deals drugs, but not even her closest friends know why. But when a deal goes south and Abby’s suddenly in danger, she finds herself reluctantly forced to lean on daredevil Logan—a boy whose restless spirit matches her own.

Logan has his own reasons for wanting to keep Abby at arms’ length. But he never expected to find in her the one person who might help him face the demons he’s tried so hard to run from.

Together, Abby and Logan will have to make a decision: let their current circumstances weigh them down forever…or fight for the future they both thought was impossible.

My Rating
4.9/5





Summary (My Review) - May Contain SPOILERS (non in first three paragraph)
Eadlyn is Maxon's and America's firstborn so that means she is the next Queen.

Illea is now free to do whatever they want and can marry anyone because the castes are gone but are they grateful, nope. Maxon and America have to distract the people of Illea for a moment to figure out a solution to make Illea happy again, so they persuaded... no, negotiated with Eadlyn to agree with their plan, which is to make another Selection.

Eadlyn is the type of girl who is very independent and thinks she doesn't need a "silly" boy to help her rule Illea. She agreed to the her father and mother's plan; but she has a plan of her own, act hostile to the boys so no one will like her, and that plan kinda failed :/.





ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, are you kidding me?!!! I have to wait for another book??????? I ship Eadlyn and that Erick guy so bad or Hale. I don't think I can survive, please release the next book soon.

As you can tell I'm obsessed with this book series.

My Rating 
4/5







Summary (from Goodreads because I'm feeling super lazy)
The girl with straight A's and the perfect life—that's who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy family…and she's just added two more to the list. One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker—a guy she has no business even talking to. But after the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can't get him out of her mind. 

The last thing Isaiah needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks. But when their shared love of street racing puts their lives in jeopardy, Isaiah and Rachel will have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they'll go to save each other.


My Very Short Review
It's great and very sweet, highly recommended - mimi
