Book Review- The Dream Thieves

I finally finished reading The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) by Maggie Stiefvater.

From Goodreads: 

The second installment in the all-new series from the masterful, #1 NEW YORK TIMES
bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!

Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after...

At the end of the review of my first book in the series, I said that I wasn't sure if I would pick up the second one.  I wish I hadn't.  I could NOT get into this book.  But as I've said before, I'm one of those people who have to finish what they started.  So it took me 18 days to finish.  Sigh.

I just had such a hard time following along with the story line.  Why things were happening and who was who and what was what.  I felt like it jumped around a lot and I just couldn't keep up.  And it just wasn't interesting me.

And like in the first book, the characters didn't do anything for me.  I didn't really care about any of them although I think the Gray Man had the most dimensions. 

Oh well. 

I gave this book a rating of 2/5.

Book Review- The Infinite Moment of Us

I just finished reading The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle.

From Goodreads:

For as long as she can remember, Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents. But as high
school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: Pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now... not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn’t even know what they are?

Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart’s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie—at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.

And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them...

Sexy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction’s greatest writers.

For some reason I seem to be reading a lot of books with explicit sex in them.  The other ones I didn't mind since they were labeled as new adult.  This book is labeled as young adult.  And while I get that teens are having sex and sex in a teen relationship is a reality, I don't think a young adult novel should be as graphic as this one was.  Twelve and thirteen year olds read young adult and I don't think they should be reading words that were in this book.

That  being said, I think the story would have worked if I had liked the characters more.  And on the surface I did.  Perfect girl Wren and tough-life (turn family life) Charlie.  Wren's parents were super-strict and expected her to do and think certain things.  Charlie had a rough start to life with his biological mother and foster parents but ended up in loving home.  This should have been an interesting relationship.  But it just felt flat to me and cheesy.  Wren was completely selfish.  She didn't understand when Charlie couldn't spend every last second with her because he was working or helping out with his disabled brother (who might have been my favorite character).  She also thought he should give up everything he'd worked toward (scholarship to a great college) to go to Guatemala with her.  Sel-fish!  Charlie was likeable.  Except for his friendship with the seedy girl, Starla.  He knows its toxic yet does nothing to fix it.  I get that he's protective of her but he really just needs to tell her that she needs to shape up if she wants to stay friends.

Then the ending.  Pretty much a cliffhanger.  I feel like the story just ended.  And I don't see anything that shows that there's going to be a sequel.  I did read an ARC so maybe that's the issue and in the real book there's a definite ending. 

I gave this book a rating of 2.5/5.

The Sunday Salon
This last week was a week of ups and downs.  On Tuesday afternoon, my grandmother passed away. I flew up to Virginia on Wednesday evening to be with my family and for the service.  I flew back home on Thursday night, landing at midnight because I had to be back at the airport at 5am to fly out to Disneyland for a big race.  And I celebrated my 33rd birthday on Sunday.

I finished and reviewed the following books last week:

Book Review- Frigid

I finished reading Frigid by J. Lynn last week on the plane for an Around the World ARC Tour.

From Goodreads:

For twenty-one-year-old Sydney, being in love with Kyler isn't anything new. They'd been best
friends ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie. Somewhere over the years, she fell for him and fell hard. The big problem with that? Kyler puts the 'man' in man-whore. He's never stayed with a girl longer than a few nights, and with it being their last year in college, Syd doesn't want to risk their friendship by declaring her love.

Kyler has always put Syd on a pedestal that was too high for him to reach. To him, she's perfect and she's everything. But the feelings he has for her, he's always hidden away or focused on any other female. After all, Kyler will always be the poor boy from the wrong side of tracks, and Syd will always be the one girl he can never have.

But when they're stranded together at a posh ski resort due to a massive Nor'easter, there's nothing stopping their red-hot feelings for each other from coming to the surface. Can their friendship survive the attraction? Better yet, can they survive at all? Because as the snow falls, someone is stalking them, and this ski trip may be a life-changer in more ways than one.

Wow. This book was a straight up romance novel geared toward a slightly younger crowd.  There were so many sexual scenes and words.  I was reading it on the plane and felt like I had to make sure no one could see the words in the book.  But I did enjoy it!
This was a classic romance story--boy and girl have been best friends forever.  They're in love with each other but don't know how the other feels.  We get to follow along to see if they end up together.

I liked Sydney but she had some major issues.  Her self-esteem was extremely low and she had trust issues.  Although considering what a man-whore Kyler was, I guess I don't blame her.  And did he really have to sleep with every female if he really had such feelings for her? 

That being said, I liked their time together in the cabin where they figured out their feelings.  There was a little mystery/danger thrown in, but I had it figured it out from the beginning.

Overall, if you want a romance novel with younger main characters, then this might be the book for you!

I gave this book a rating of 3/5.

Frigid will be released on November 5, 2013.

Book Review- On the Island

I finished On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves last week before all my trips.

From Goodreads:

When thirty-year-old English teacher Anna Emerson is offered a job tutoring T.J. Callahan at his
family's summer rental in the Maldives, she accepts without hesitation; a working vacation on a tropical island trumps the library any day.

T.J. Callahan has no desire to leave town, not that anyone asked him. He's almost seventeen and if having cancer wasn't bad enough, now he has to spend his first summer in remission with his family - and a stack of overdue assignments - instead of his friends.

Anna and T.J. are en route to join T.J.'s family in the Maldives when the pilot of their seaplane suffers a fatal heart attack and crash-lands in the Indian Ocean. Adrift in shark-infested waters, their life jackets keep them afloat until they make it to the shore of an uninhabited island. Now Anna and T.J. just want to survive and they must work together to obtain water, food, fire, and shelter.

Their basic needs might be met but as the days turn to weeks, and then months, the castaways encounter plenty of other obstacles, including violent tropical storms, the many dangers lurking in the sea, and the possibility that T.J.'s cancer could return. As T.J. celebrates yet another birthday on the island, Anna begins to wonder if the biggest challenge of all might be living with a boy who is gradually becoming a man.

On the Island was an intriguing read.  A little far-fetched but I enjoyed it none-the-less.

I travel frequently (in fact, I'm on a plane writing this review!) and so the idea of crashing terrified me.  And yet the idea of surviving on an island interested me.  I'm not sure that people could survive 3 years though.  I also thought it was pretty coincidental that their stuff washed up on the island.  In the book, they said there was something like 1200 islands so I think there would have been a bigger chance of their stuff washing up on some of the other islands.

I liked Anna.  I could relate to her as a teacher and where she was in her life.  And I liked TJ.  At first, I thought there relationship was a little creepy, but TJ soon seemed like a man so it wasn't so weird.

I look forward to reading the novella!

I gave this book a rating of 3.5 out of 5.

What books count towards the SRC?
Any second YA or MG book published by an author in 2013 counts – it can be the second in a series, a new series, or a standalone. The only requirement is that it is the SECOND book the author has published in the YA or MG realm (and it must publish in 2013 in your home country)! There is a Goodreads group for the challenge, which includes a selection of books that would count for the challenge – as you can see, there are probably many many books on that list you are planning on reading already :)
The list will be updated as I’m able, but please feel free to read ANY Sophomore book! It does not have to be the second book in a series, just the second YA/MG book the author has published, period.
When does the challenge run?
Books read before January 2014 count for this challenge. This includes books you may have access to now in ARC form!
Why should I join this challenge?
Reading debut novels is AWESOME. It is by far my favorite challenge – it allows me to find many new authors that I love. What better way to support these authors than to read their next published book?
What are the guidelines of the challenge?
Your challenge is to read 10 sophomore YA/MG novels in 2013. To officially participate, you need a Goodreads account or blog where you post reviews in English.
What should I do if I’m an author coming out with a sophomore novel?
