Remember Yesterday -eBook

Book Title: Remember Yesterday (Forget Tomorrow, #2)

Author: Pintip Dunn

Release Date: October 4, 2016

Genre: YA Sci-Fi

 

Sixteen-year-old Jessa Stone is the most valuable citizen in Eden City. Her psychic abilities could lead to significant scientific discoveries, if only she’d let TechRA study her. But ten years ago, the scientists kidnapped and experimented on her, leading to severe ramifications for her sister, Callie. She’d much rather break into their labs and sabotage their research—starting with Tanner Callahan, budding scientist and the boy she loathes most at school.

 

The past isn’t what she assumed, though—and neither is Tanner. He’s not the arrogant jerk she thought he was. And his research opens the door to the possibility that Jessa can rectify a fatal mistake made ten years earlier. She’ll do anything to change the past and save her sister—even if it means teaming up with the enemy she swore to defeat.

ForgetTomorrow_500Forget Tomorrow (Forget Tomorrow, #1) Book Synopsis:

 

Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided…by your future self.

It’s Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she’s eagerly awaiting her vision―a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they’re meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.

Or in Callie’s case, a criminal.

 

In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo―a prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes the hellish prison.

But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all—Callie, herself.

Review: Full Share by Eliza Freed

29837563Title: Full Share
Author ELiza Freed
Release Date: June 21st, 2016
Publisher: Brunswick House

Blurb from Goodreads: Nora Hargrove’s post-grad life includes a horrific entry-level job, a cave of an apartment, and a strict avoidance of all interpersonal relationships. She knows only one thing about herself—she wants to be left alone.

Avoiding her mother’s forced family time, she seeks solitude on her own terms. In a poorly ventilated, overcrowded Dewey Beach rental, she discovers there’s no place to hide. Not from yourself, not from your life, and not from love. This is the story of Nora Hargrove’s full share.

I learned the healing power of a good bloody Mary and a dip in the Atlantic. I kayaked in the dead of night and witnessed the only shooting star I’ve ever seen. I fell in love on a bed made of pallets. I lived.

Life is deep. Dive in.

 

 

Review: Nora Hargrove is in a dead end job, which she believes suits her just fine. She’s hiding from the world and has no problem letting some past events shut down her life. She’s broken. The only reason she takes on a full share of a beach house for the summer is to avoid the instigator of said past events: her mother.

The beauty in this story is how realistic it actually is. I didn’t feel like I needed to suspend reality as I read it. The plot played out organically. Nora’s journey is difficult, and at times, it’s difficult to read because she becomes a part of you.

I would recommend this to anyone seeking a New Adult novel with real characters and real situations. There are sexual situations and adult content. So if you’re sensitive to that, then maybe skip Full Share.

Friday Reads: Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristof

 

FridayReads

 

Hello, Hello *taps mic* *clears throat*

I find myself oddly nervous coming back after a little bit of a break. Which is super weird, especially when it’s a Friday Reads is pretty much my favourite thing. I typically save the bulk of my reading for the weekend, so Fridays are the big kick off.

My selection this week is Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristof

 

23395680

(blurb from Goodreads)

This morning, Kady thought breaking up  with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.
This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it’s clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.

Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

 

 

 

I really enjoyed the Starbound series by Amie Kaugman,

 

13138635   13138734 13138736

 

I’ve had a few people recommend Illuminae to me also, but the best part of this being my choice for my Friday Reads is because I already have it.

I was digging through the books I got last year at BookCon, (*sniff* so sad I don’t get to go this year) and at the time, I remembered seeing the book, and that it was in an unusual format, every page is like an official government document of some type. There are even rumours Brad Pitt’s production company is optioning it for a movie. I’m excited to finally get to it.

 

Have a great weekend, may it be filled with pages of intrigue and adventure.

Friday Reads: A Court of Thorn and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

FridayReads

So, as usual, I’m behind the times. I finally started reading A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES by Sarah J. Maas. I love her. I don’t know why I waited so long to pick this up. Her stories, while fantasies, are so organic. Totally worth staying up all night to finish… now if I had only called in sick to work….

16096824

From Goodreads:

A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Timesbestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beastwith faerie lore.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it… or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

Happy reading. Have a safe Memorial Day Weekend. And thank a vet.

Friday Reads: CALVIN by Martine Leavitt

From the writer of one of my all-time-favorite books, KETURAH AND LORD DEATH, is this 2015 release.

I’m two chapters in a really intrigued with 17-year-old Calvin and his need to meet Bill Waterson and have him write one last comic strip to heal Calvin’s schizophrenia. I also like how dialogue is written.

Hobbes: I think she likes you. I can teach you how to smooch. I’ve had lots of practice.

Me: Move over.

Hobbes: Smooching is a way of tasting people without actually eating them up.

23310675

From Goodreads:

As a child, Calvin felt an affinity with the comic book character from Bill Watterson’s Calvin & Hobbes.

He was born on the day the last strip was published; his grandpa left a stuffed tiger named Hobbes in his crib; and he even had a best friend named Susie. Then Calvin’s mom washed Hobbes to death, Susie grew up beautiful and stopped talking to him, and Calvin pretty much forgot about the strip—until now. Now he is seventeen years old and has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. Hobbes is back, as a delusion, and Calvin can’t control him. Calvin decides that Watterson is the key to everything—if he would just make one more comic strip, but without Hobbes, Calvin would be cured. Calvin and Susie (is she real?) and Hobbes (he can’t be real, can he?) set out on a dangerous trek across frozen Lake Erie to track down Watterson.

Friday Reads: A COURT OF MIST AND FURY by Sarah J. Maas

Haven’t we all been waiting FOREVER for this book after reading A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES?

 

Yes.

 

Because that book was addicting. And now it’s here! And a #1 New York Times Bestseller and I can’t wait to finally get to read this! I bought it at B&N last weekend and the really nice man who was ringing up my purchase of this plus two other books, he looks at ACOMAF and says, “Oh, this is popular right now.” And the New York Time Bestseller List must agree. It makes me so happy when other people notice the books you’re purchasing/reading. It’s like bonding over this made-up hidden world than feels like it’s only yours until suddenly you realized someone else has shared that experience.

Tangent.

Anyway, I can’t wait to start reading after work today. Here’s the synopsis from Goodreads:

 

ACOMAF

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas’s masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

 

So what are y’all reading this Friday? I’m gonna go curl up with ACOMAF. :)

 

Happy reading!

The Paladins Cover

 

The Artisan curse is broken. Souls trapped in a mysterious otherworld called The Void are finally released. Now, Raven Weathersby, Gideon Maddox, and Cole Wynter can finally move on with their lives…or so they thought. If the ancient magic is truly dead, then why are mystical fires plaguing Gideon at every turn? What accounts for Raven’s frightening visions of her dead mother? And who is the beautiful, tortured girl haunting Cole’s dreams?

Last year, a group of lonely teens sacrificed secrets, battled the supernatural, and faced their own demons to set one another free. Yet six months later, the heart of evil still beats within The Void. And the trio is forced to face the horrific truth: that their only way out is to go back in.

The Paladins completes this eerie YA Southern Gothic where loyalties are tested, love is challenged, and evil seeks them on the ultimate battlegrounds—in their minds, their souls, and their hearts.

The Artisans

 

They say death can be beautiful. But after the death of her mother, seventeen-year-old Raven Weathersby gives up her dream of becoming a fashion designer, barely surviving life in the South Carolina lowlands.

To make ends meet, Raven works after school as a seamstress creating stunning works of fashion that often rival the great names of the day.

Instead of making things easier on the high school senior, her stepdad’s drinking leads to a run in with the highly reclusive heir to the Maddox family fortune, Gideon Maddox.

But Raven’s stepdad’s drying out and in no condition to attend the meeting with Maddox. So Raven volunteers to take his place and offers to repay the debt in order to keep the only father she’s ever known out of jail, or worse.

Gideon Maddox agrees, outlining an outrageous demand: Raven must live in his home for a year while she designs for Maddox Industries’ clothing line, signing over her creative rights.

Her handsome young captor is arrogant and infuriating to the nth degree, and Raven can’t imagine working for him, let alone sharing the same space for more than five minutes.

But nothing is ever as it seems. Is Gideon Maddox the monster the world believes him to be? And can he stand to let the young seamstress see him as he really is?

About-the-Author2

Julie_Reece_Image_3-253x300

 

Born in Ohio, I lived next to my grandfather’s horse farm until the fourth grade. Summers were about riding, fishing and make-believe, while winter brought sledding and ice-skating on frozen ponds. Most of life was magical, but not all.

I struggled with multiple learning disabilities, did not excel in school. I spent much of my time looking out windows and daydreaming. In the fourth grade (with the help of one very nice teacher) I fought dyslexia for my right to read, like a prince fights a dragon in order to free the princess locked in a tower, and I won.

Afterwards, I read like a fiend. I invented stories where I could be the princess… or a gifted heroine from another world who kicked bad guy butt to win the heart of a charismatic hero. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? Later, I moved to Florida where I continued to fantasize about superpowers and monsters, fabricating stories (my mother called it lying) and sharing them with my friends.

Then I thought I’d write one down…

Hooked, I’ve been writing ever since. I write historical, contemporary, urban fantasy, adventure, and young adult romances. I love strong heroines, sweeping tales of mystery and epic adventure… which must include a really hot guy. My writing is proof you can work hard to overcome any obstacle. Don’t give up. I say, if you write, write on!

Manic Monday: Massive Reading Rut Edition aka NEED RECS

ManicMonday

I’m in a serious reading rut. Nothing is grabbing my attention. On the rare occasion that something has, it doesn’t hold it. The last book I read was SALT TO THE SEA by Ruta Sepetys so I thought I’d search out more historical fiction. I got nada.

via GIPHY

So I went back to my old friend, contemporary. Still nothing.

Then I tried some fantasy…

And that’s where I am. So please, post recs in the comments. I feel like a lost little lamb without anything to … well, to lose myself in.

Waiting on Wednesday: WANDERLOST by Jen Malone

Wanderlost

From Goodreads:

Not all those who wander are lost, but Aubree Sadler most definitely is on this novel’s whirlwind trip through Europe.

Aubree can’t think of a better place to be than in perfectly boring Ohio, and she’s ready for a relaxing summer. But when her older sister, Elizabeth, gets into real trouble, Aubree is talked into taking over Elizabeth’s summer job, leading a group of senior citizens on a bus tour through Europe.

Aubree doesn’t even make it to the first stop in Amsterdam before their perfect plan begins unraveling, leaving her with no phone, no carefully prepared binder full of helpful facts, and an unexpected guest: the tour company owner’s son, Sam. Considering she’s pretending to be Elizabeth, she absolutely shouldn’t fall for him, but she can’t help it, especially with the most romantic European cities as the backdrop for their love story.

But her relationship with Sam is threatening to ruin her relationship with her sister, and she feels like she’s letting both of them down. Aubree knows this trip may show her who she really is—she just hopes she likes where she ends up.

 

I’m a sucker for anything with travel, especially Europe, so this sounds amazing! And a hot foreign guy? I am so there! Can’t wait to read this one!
