Follow Friday (42)

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.

Q. Activity! Who is your to-die-for book crush? What do you think they look like? Add an image to make us all happy.

A. Uhm, well... I have many, many, many book crushes, including, but not limited to Dimitri from the Vampire Academy series, Tobias aka Four from the Divergent series, Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars, Chaol from the Throne of Glass series and Naji from the Assassin's Curse series. I don't really know what they all look like, I'm more attracted to the way they act and their personalities. I have an idea of who I see what I see Dimitri and Four though.

Ben Barnes (with longer hair) as Dimitri

Max Thieriot as Four
(These two aren't exactly who I pictured, but they are the closest to the men in my imagination.)

Who do you have a crush on?

Why I Love YA

So if you haven't heard, Beth Revis, author of the Across the Universe series, is hosting (hosted) a giveaway of 50 signed young adult novels. She wants to know why we love young adult books!

So why do I love YA?

I love young adult novels because they are so easy to relate to. Being just out of my teendom, I still love to read them because many of them - especially contemporary - feel like they could happen. I can put myself in the main character's position and understand why the do, and feel, what they do.

There has been so much progression in the genre that I actually prefer it to adult. Maybe it's just cause I never want to grow up! *wink*

Even before I was born, I was reading - of course, it was really my mother who was reading to me, but that instilled my love of books. As I grew, my taste in books did as well. YA books helped me through a lot of struggles and hard times. I still am really grateful that I had those books and I'm grateful that authors continue to work to produce more.

Now, it's not that I don't enjoy adult books, but my heart is with young adult novels. They are powerful and wonderful for not just teens, but adults as well. You don't have to be a teenager anymore to enjoy books of this genre and that's what I really like about it. To read adult novels, grasp them and enjoy them, more often than not, you have to be an adult. That's not the case for YA, I read it, my siblings read it, my 50 year old mother reads it.

I want this progression to continue. There have been some absolutely beautiful books written by fan-freaking-tastic authors that are categorized in this age group and I want to see more of that. Young adult novels have impacted me so much that I want my children and their children to be able to experience that love and utter joy of reading!

Why do you love YA?

Book Review: Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill

The blurb as seen on Goodreads:
Release Date: November 13, 2012
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
304 Pages

Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question. 

It's one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she's queen of following rules and being prepared. That's why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that's also why she's chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB ("meant to be").

But this spring break, Julia's rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she's partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love.

Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.



Meant to Be was, for lack of a better word, cute. It wasn't perfect, but it made me smile and kept my attention. It's a pretty laid-back contemporary novel for older young adults.

I've seen this Meant to Be compared to Stephanie Perkins' Anna and the French Kiss and works by Sarah Dessen. While I can see why people would associate them, Lauren Morrill really makes Meant to Be her own. I think besides the fact that this is a contemporary young adult romance, that is based in another country, this book cannot really related to another author's work. The writing style, characters and plot are all unique.

Julia is going to London with her some of her classmates on a school trip. She plans to see the London that her parents saw on their honeymoon, the one she's dreamed about since before her father passed away. There's only one big problem, her best friend's family wouldn't let her join Julia. Never fear, she has thoughts of Mark (her "MTB" - Meant-To-Be) to keep her company as she treks through her dream vacation. Things get worse when she gets paired up with the obnoxious and irresponsible class clown, Jason. Will she make it through this trip with her rules and preparations in tact, or will she realize that maybe not everything is meant to be?

Is it weird to like a book, but not get attached to the characters? Because that is how I feel about this one. Julia frustrated me almost as soon as she was introduced. She's very straight-laced, sticks to a rules and doesn't really allow herself to let go of the little things. I made frequent notes in my kindle about her personality and demeanor. It's not that she's a bad person, because she's not. Julia just isn't the easiest character to read about. I know people like this in real life, and they annoy me just as much. Jason, on the other hand, is too… boisterous. He's rude, and crude, and doesn't exactly take others' feelings into consideration. The romance between these two just didn't work for me. I liked them both well enough, but they weren't what made the book for me.

Enjoying this novel is really easy. It's fun and pretty light. It's also short enough to read in a few hours. A bit predictable, but that doesn't take away from how cute and fun it is. Reading Meant to Be was an adventure, not just because it is based London, but because of the growth you see in the characters. Though really… London… So cool. Personally, I've never been out of the United States, but it was a really interesting to read about the trip and city through the eyes of someone who has never experienced it before. It also caused a lot of envy.

Lauren Morrill produced a great debut and I look forward to reading more from her in the future.

I received and e-copy of this novel from the publisher through Netgalley for my honest opinion and review.

Book Review: Glitch (Glitch #1) by Heather Anastasiu

The blurb as seen on Goodreads:
Release Date: August 7, 2012
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
308 Pages

In the Community, there is no more pain or war. Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network.

When Zoe starts to malfunction (or “glitch”), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers.

As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Both boys introduce Zoe to feelings that are entirely new. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse.

In this action-packed debut, Glitch begins an exciting new young adult trilogy.



Huh. Well… This book had a lot of faults, in my opinion. Too many faults for me to really enjoy it.

Glitch is the story of a girl, Zoel, or Zoe as she prefers to be called. Zoe has been having "glitches" of emotion and awareness in a world where emotion and disorder are cause for death or "deactivation." Everything in this novel is electronic and futuristic. 

The futuristic tone of this novel was one thing that really troubled me. Because I'm not very knowledgable about technology, and that's an understatement, I had trouble following along with all of the new ideas that Glitch produces. Not only did I get mixed up with that part of the novel, but with the exaggerated plot, I was confused on what was happening like forty percent of the time. I had to reread several parts to make sure I was reading correctly. Yes, it hard to understand what was happening, but it didn't help that the plot also moved a the strangest pace. Sometimes it went quickly, other times, I felt like I was reading in slow motions. That was extremely frustrating. It took me so long to finish the book.

Another hardship was that I didn't like Zoe. We just didn't click. Her actions and thoughts were so overwhelming and she was constantly crying. When a character cries all the time, I get really annoyed. Maybe that's insensitive seeing as she's reacting to emotion for the first time in her life, but come on. There are other emotions besides sadness. Plus, her understanding was so inconsistent. There were some things that she didn't understand like what "sorry" means. Really? They don't make apologies in the future? And though she didn't know what "sorry" meant, she knew what terror was before anyone explained it to her? It just doesn't add up.

Adrien is really the only character I liked. And liked may even be a stretch. Everyone else, Molla, Zoe, Max… I want to kick them all. They are just weak and unlikable characters. I didn't feel sorry for any of them. The feeling provoked by their descriptions and actions was closer to contempt.

There's a love triangle in this novel. Kind of… I actually really don't know how to describe it. The "love triangle" made me want to stop reading. The second love interest was a total jerk. Every time Zoe forgave him, I wanted to slap her. He's seriously awful. A horrible "human" being. So that made it hard to read at points because I did not understand the attraction. Even thinking about him makes me want to tear out my hair. He might even be worse than… *gasp* Christian Grey.

But overall, I kinda-ish liked it. The idea was interesting. I didn't like the characters at all, but I am curious about what's going to happen next. 

I received and e-copy of this novel from the publisher through Netgalley for my honest opinion and review.

Blog Tour: Guest Post: The Memory Thief by Emily Colin

Today, Edwin and Emily are happy to be a part of the The Memory Thief Blog Tour
hosted by JKSCommunications.
Find the other tour stops here.

The Memory Thief by Emily Colin
Release Date: August 21, 2012
Publisher: Ballantine Books
432 Pages

In Emily Colin’s exquisite debut novel THE MEMORY THIEF (Ballantine Trade Paperback Original; On-Sale August 21, 2012) one man’s vow to his wife sparks a remarkable journey that tests the pull of memory and reaffirms the bonds of love.

Deftly weaving together two strands of plot, THE MEMORY THIEF spins an unforgettable tale of love lost and found. Though she has lived with her husband Aidan’s adventure-seeking tendencies for the entirety of their relationship, Maddie has particularly strong reservations when Aidan tells her of his plans to summit Alaska’s Mount McKinley. When she eventually gives in to him, Aidan promises her, “I will come back to you.” Yet, late one night, she receives shocking news: Aidan has died in an avalanche. Confronted with grief, newfound single parenthood, and the realization that J.C., Aidan’s climbing partner and best friend, has been in love with her for years, Maddie must swim through her swirling emotions in a quest for understanding.

Across the country, Nicholas Sullivan awakes from a motorcycle accident. Unable to remember any part of his life to this point, he finds that his dreams are haunted by images of a beautiful woman and a young boy. Feeling as though these mysterious people may hold the answers to his own problems, Nicholas is driven to find them. Nicholas’s journey leads him to great discoveries—which not only change his life, but Maddie’s, too.

Poignant, yet ultimately triumphant, THE MEMORY THIEF is a unique and compelling love story that marks Emily Colin as a young author to watch.

Advance Praise for Emily Colin and THE MEMORY THIEF
“This absorbing first effort brings to mind the mountaineers of a Jon Krakauer read, the tenderness of a Nicholas Sparks novel, and the enduring love story of Charles Martin’s The Mountain between Us, all sprinkled with a heady dose of passion. Colin is an author to watch and savor.”  

 “Dazzlingly original and as haunting as a dream, Colin’s mesmerizing debut explores the way memory, love and great loss bind our lives together in ways we might never expect. From its audacious opening to the knockout last pages, I was enthralled.”
Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You

“In THE MEMORY THIEF, love itself is a character, able to transcend all natural boundaries to find its way home, or to learn to let go. Emily Colin writes about loss with heartbreaking conviction, and yet there is a knowing sweetness at the core of this richly emotional tale. Here is a lovely, 
self-assured debut from a writer to watch.”
Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty



I love book clubs.
Truly, I do. I love everything about them. I love the fact that folks use their love of reading as an excuse to gather, and then spend the first forty-five minutes talking about everything but the book.  I love the way a good book club becomes an oasis from ordinary life, a safe space where you’ve earned the right not to worry about homework, dinner or laundry for the night. I love the way that, even if you only see the members of your book club once a month, you can pick right up where you left off, talking about one person’s obnoxious job and the other’s good-for-nothing boyfriend, celebrating small victories and grieving losses together. I love the way book clubs make you read things you would never have picked up otherwise; the way they establish their own rhythm and culture, a mini-society of literary fiends who get off on stories—their own and other people’s. When I moved to Wilmington, North Carolina in 1999 without knowing a soul but my four-month-old puppydog, and couldn’t find a community that felt right, guess what I did? I started a book club, and all these years later, we still get together once a month.
I am, you might say, a book club evangelist. So you can imagine my delight when I wrote a novel of my own—The Memory Thief, a blend of high-altitude mountaineering, a love story, a ghost story and a mystery—and local book clubs began contacting me, asking me if I’d come and speak. They seemed almost hesitant about it, as if they thought perhaps I’d see such an engagement as an inconvenience, or worse, a burden.
Needless to say, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Each invitation energized me, with a sense of anticipation that—ironically—was hard to put into words.
In part, of course, I was flattered. It’s fabulous enough for one person to want to read The Memory Thief, to choose to spend their hard-earned money on the book and their equally valuable time in the company of my imaginary friends, loosed upon the world at last. But to have a whole group of folks commit to reading my debut novel—which is, you understand, as much as part of myself as the scar on the bottom of my left foot or my stubborn, stick-straight hair—and then to get together, for the express purpose of discussing it? That was just too cool for school.
Then, too, there’s the unprecedented opportunity to get a sneak peak at other people’s book clubs, even if just for the evening. I love my book club dearly, and to be perfectly honest, at the first couple of events, I felt a bit as if I were cheating on it. I’d look around and think—in the immortal words of the Talking Heads—This is not my beautiful house! This is not my beautiful wife! Then, like any adulterer rationalizing their behavior, I’d think, It’s okay, though. Because it’s just for tonight. And then I did it again. And again.
And I loved it.
There is something so fulfilling about sitting in a room with a group of people who have all read your novel, and who have definitive opinions about it. It’s incredible to hear what they think about your characters—who they adore, who could take a very long moonlit stroll off the end of an extraordinarily rickety pier. It’s fascinating to hear the questions they come up with, the things they want to know. It’s truly wonderful to have the chance to talk about Aidan and Maddie and Nicholas as if they’re real people, out there in the world living their lives—why they made the choices they did, how things could have turned out differently, if only. What this room full of readers would have done, in their stead.
Yes, I love book clubs. And this is why, even if you don’t live in Wilmington, I’d be more than happy to pay a visit to yours—by Skype, by speaker phone, by carrier pigeon. Check out my website for details: Book club aficionados, there’s a section just for you.

Curious? Check out the book trailer:

Big thanks to Emily for stopping by and JKSCommunications for setting up the tour and allowing us to be a part of it!

Top Ten Tuesday (37)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
This week's theme is: 
Top Ten Authors and Books I'm Thankful For

1. John Green
- I will always be thankful for John Green and not just as an author, but as a person. He and Hank, his brother, for those who don't know, have been a true inspiration to me. Plus, his novels are some of the greatest I've ever read.

2. Dr. Seuss
- My mother read Dr. Seuss to me as a child, and even bought me his books on cassette (yes, it was that long ago) for me to listen to while trying to sleep. His stories brought my imagination to life and I wouldn't be the avid reader that I am today without him.

3. Stephenie Meyer / The Twilight Saga
- There was a time in high school where I got into a serious funk. I didn't like anything. I couldn't read. I had serious social issues and couldn't relate to my classmates. So I basically spent all of my time in the library, doing homework. The head librarian noticed the change in my attitude and brought me a copy of the first book. I was hooked. So while I'm not longer a fanatic, I am thankful to Stephenie Meyer because she help restore my love of books.

4. Harry Potter
- I'm sure you understand.

5. Jane Eyre
- This book and the 2007 version of the movie made my senior year of high school bearable. To this day, it is one of my all time favorite well... everythings.

6. The Hunger Games
- For starting a new trend that we can't get enough of.

7. Cecilia Gray
- As an author, and as a friend. I "met" Cecilia this year and I adore her. She's not only a brilliant writer, but she's awesome and is super strange with me.

8. Manga
- I'm sure this doesn't exactly count, but within the past few months, manga has become a big part of my life. I read it just as much of it as "regular books." I also smile as I read them and I've become seriously attached to several series. Manga (and anime, for that matter) makes me happy.

9. My Momma and Grandma Katie
- This doesn't really count either. I'm kind of stealing this idea from Paula from The Broke and The Bookish, but it fits in very well in my life as well. My mom isn't a big reader. She likes to read, but she is not obsessed like I am. She always tells me that she admires me for how involved I get in novels and wishes that she had the drive to read as much as I do. Though she says this, my reading habits are really her doing. Before I was even born, my mother and grandmother read to me. My grandmother was a big fan of books as well. It's genetic, I'd say. So growing up, I was always at the library, or being read to, or when I finally could, reading to them. The love of books that I was born into has stayed with me from birth to adulthood and I have them to thank for it.

10. All Authors and Books
- As a book lover, I'm thankful for all books. Even if they are godawful. If you are an author, I'm thankful for you (unless you are a complete jerk, then I'm not). You are courageous enough to put your words out there, not knowing what the reaction will be. I'm thankful for that because without authors, we wouldn't have books.

What books and authors are you thankful for this year?
