‘New Moon’, ‘Eclipse’, and ‘Breaking Dawn’ by Stephanie Meyer

I am going to be completely honest with you guys. When I first read Twilight, I was so excited to read the next books, but I didn’t enjoy them as much. Long story short, I probably only read about 200 pages from these books combined.

Now, just because I didn’t enjoy it doesn’t mean you won’t, so if you want to, you should check out other reviews on these books.

I can’t really give an accurate description of these books because I didn’t read them so you may need to check out other reviews for more details.

New Moon: Edward leaves Bella after Jasper tries to attack her. In his defense, Bella did cut herself. Bella and Jacob bond more, and let’s just say cliff jumping isn’t something Bella should ever do again.

Eclipse; All I know about this one is there is a Newborn army coming to Seattle.

Breaking Dawn; Bella and Edward get married and something interesting happens on their honeymoon that will cause some problems in the future.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Sorry Twilight fans!

‘Geek Girl’ by Holly Smale

Harriet Manners was an ordinary girl. Most classified her as a geek if the big red lettering on her book bag is anything to go by. After being dragged to the school’s field trip to a fashion thing by her best friend, Nat, destroying a few booths, and getting recognized, that all changed. Sure she is still known as a geek to her school, but to the rest of the world, she is an international super model.

Okay, so I loved this book. I mainly started reading it because I am a geek and have actually looked the word up in the dictionary, but it turned into so much more than just liking it because I relate. After finishing this, I actually wanted to model, something I barely considered before starting this.

I loved the book, I didn’t want to stop reading. The writing was detailed and written in a way that I enjoyed. I’d give it a five out of five stars because I loved this book! I am so excited to read the second one ‘Model Misfit’. I will probably review that one once I finish it.

Goodbye for now friends!

Love Rylie ❤

‘The School for Good and Evil’ by Soman Chainani

Every four years a magical man known only as the School Master takes two children from the small town of Gavaldon to a school made to create fairy tales. One child is always tagged as good and the other evil. Every four years a single storybook is delivered to the local bookshop with no letter. Nothing. The days after, the store is closed, for the owner to make copies of the book he received. Every once in awhile, when the children read the story books, they’d find a child who was taken four years prior. Sophie had always known she would be whisked away that night, anyone who had the pleasure of meeting her thought she would. Agatha, on the other hand, was Sophie’s best friend, if you can call her that, and the daughter of a ‘witch’. Evil for sure, right?

 

When both Agatha and Sophie are whisked away, the two best friends are put to the ultimate test. How far can friendship and kindness take you when you are evil in the center of your being? Always have and always will be. Being in a fairy tale is not as fun or easy as imagined. The two friends soon realize the only way to escape a fairy tale, is to live through it till the very end. Such an end isn’t as close as they believe though.

 

The book teaches such an important lesson that what lies within is what you truly are. The plot never really falls, you are taken on a constant journey of wondering what will happen next. Every character has a backstory connected to each other. The author did meet their goals. The message is clear, each person is different and has a purpose in the fairy tale. Whether it be the villain or the hero, or maybe just a tree that was once a failed student. Who knows?

 

This book reminds me of the Harry Potter series, and not just because they both are fantasy. People separated into different groups based on what is inside of them. Coming from the world that is basically oblivious to what is going on around them, being whisked into a story they don’t want to complete. The fairy tale isn’t as far off from a prophecy as one might think. Quite the opposite. Neither is set in stone, and both could end happily or in disaster. In other words, the Good could win, or the Evil. You will never know unless you live through it.

 

I would definitely recommend this book to fantasy lovers. The age group would have to be teenagers in my opinion. Even though this book is fantasy, for sure, romance is mixed in. I, personally, loved this book. I am a sucker for fantasy, and this one pulled me in and didn’t let me go. Like a young girl clutching a book to her chest like her whole life depended on those pages filled with writing. I highly recommend this book to people who are interested!

Girl Scouts

I don’t know if anyone knew I was a girl scout, well, if you did that is a little creepy. Anyways, it was Badge Day today and I helped with the Yoga badge. It was called ‘Getting Fit’, but we did yoga.

I love yoga. My favorite pose is the pigeon. They also had homemade science and dance.

Okay! Bye!

“The Fault In Our Stars” By John Green

I loved this book. It was amazing. (Wow, why do I always review books I love…) 5 out of 5 stars.

A young girl named Hazel has been diagnosed with cancer. Fluid will fill her lungs and make it hard to breathe. She walks around with an oxygen tank. While at a group for people with cancer, she meets a man named Agustus Waters. He steals her heart. He lost a leg to cancer. They became the best of friends… And maybe more.

This book stole my heart and ran with it. I adored it. It is from Hazel’s perspective and is like she is really thinking. Not like regular books.

I just couldn’t believe the story. It touched me. Like, no matter who you are, something bad could happen to you.

The story followed a basic plot, but with a twist. Every corner you turn, something bad happens. It makes it interesting.

It is based on a true story and provides an interesting perspective.

In conclusion, you should definitely buy this book. Most libraries should have it or bookstores. I loved it and I hope you do as well.

Have fun reading!

 

Weird Moments…

Okay… So you know when you are with your friends, and you think OMG… If someone heard us we’d be put into a mental hospital…

Okay… So I didn’t get that from my wonderful mind, I found it on the internet. I admit it.

Do you ever wonder if you are just tiny dolls in a dollhouse, being controlled by a real human? No? Am I the only one? Maybe I am… Huh.

Well, I guess everyone else doesn’t have weird thoughts at 4 AM. Weird.

“Some Boys” By Patty Blount

This book is about a girl who ‘claimed’ she was raped by the town golden boy, Zac. She has been called any different names such as slut and whore and liar. She wears her armor every day. Then  Ian comes into the picture and he won’t be the first to call her names, but he doesn’t. The only problem is he is Zac’s best friend.

This book is amazing! I couldn’t put it down since I picked it up. I have read it at least three times. It gets 5 out of 5 stars. Go get it! I read it and loved it and could NOT put it down!!!  My copy is signed too, but for my mom…

Anyways… In conclusion! 5 stars. Amazing! Go get it!

I absolutely loved it! The plot the story follows engages you and makes you want to read more. Descriptions allowed you to visualize the scene and characters. Also, the progressing of relationships, don’t get me started. You constantly wanted more. For them to get together, or for them to break up.

Enjoy your reading and have fun!!!

 

 

 

Sorry

Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. I stretched my ligaments on my left foot and it needed to heal. I got really distracted.

Got some new books today! I also had MCA testing. That wasn’t fun. I think I’ll have to bring my crutches tomorrow… My foot started to bug me.

Criminal Minds is awesome! I am re-watching it. Currently on Episode 5 Season 2. I love Reid.

Well, Quinn and I have gotten closer. He also loves cheese. Especially Provolone.

Well… My books await!

Love Rylie ❤

Cats

You get so excited that your cat made room for you on the bed! You sit down. They look at you, then jump off.

You’re like “No! I’m sorry! Please come back.”

 

They walk away. A lone tear falls. Maybe another day.

‘Smile’ By Raina Telgemeier

‘Smile’ by Raina Telgemeier was an amazing book. I have read it over a hundred times. The drawings are fantastic and it was an amazing decision to make the book.

This is a true story about a young girl named Raina. She knocked out her two front teeth while running to the front door of her house after a girl scout meeting. The book follows her story and adventure through headgear, braces, more braces,  and more medical stuff.

I give this book a 5/5. It was amazing! I absolutely loved it!

You should go get it right now. It will make you Smile! That was a bad joke. Very bad. Unless you laughed. Then I take laughs and giggles.

Anyway, go get it. You can buy it online or from your local bookstore or most supermarkets. Such as Target and Walmart.

I’ll do Sisters soon. Then Drama and Ghosts. All are amazing!

Goodbye and have fun reading!
