Review: Shatter Me

Title: Shatter Me
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Series: Shatter Me #1
Release Date: November 15th, 2011
Number of Pages: 346
Publisher: Harper
Source: Bought
Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days.
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war-- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now.
Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior. 
In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting as The Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel—with a paranormal twist—that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its sequel.

I was a little scared to read this book, as I had heard so many amazing readers sharing their love for this book and praising its amazingness. I was a little terrified that all the hype would give me higher expectations and will result in this book letting me down. The first few pages left me unsure if I would like it, simply because of the format. I’m not a big fan of this. After two or three chapters, I didn’t realize that she used that anymore.

Tahereh Mafi took a big risk with this book, but it was well executed. Juliette was an amazing character. She was strong and believable. She grows as a character and her evolution is believable. She doesn’t change within a day, but it happens slowly as she learns more about the reality of the world she’s in. I liked how her relation with Adam grows. Nothing feels too rush between both of them. Of course, I can’t forget about the amazing Adam. Wow. I absolutely adore him. I wasn’t always sure what he was thinking through the first chapters of the book, but the more we learn about him, the more amazing we discover he is.

Shatter Me is a dystopian novel, but I have to say that I wouldn’t be that comfortable describing the world the story is set precisely. That’s probably the only thing that I felt was missing. I just wish we could have learn more about what was really going on outside the direct environment of Juliette, but it will probably be presented in the next book, as Juliette will learn more about what is really happening in the world. She, after all, had been locked up for a while.

Tahereh Mafi’s writing was different, but I really enjoyed it. She’s taking some risks and it ‘s paying in my opinion. It may annoy the readers that are a little more purist about the format a novel should be in, but those ready to open their mind to something different will be nicely pleased.  I’m really happy to have finally had time to read this book, one I have devoured in only a couple of hours. A book I would highly recommend.

Review: Eve

Title: Eve
Author: Anna Carey
Series: Eve #1
Release Date: October 4th
Number of Pages: 318
Publisher: HarperTeen
Source: Bought
 The year is 2032, sixteen years after a deadly virus—and the vaccine intended to protect against it—wiped out most of the earth’s population. The night before eighteen-year-old Eve’s graduation from her all-girls school she discovers what really happens to new graduates, and the horrifying fate that awaits her.
Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust...and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.
Eve was the kind of book that I ended up enjoying but find hard to explain why. I find it to but captivating and fun to read. Yet, when it comes down to certain details, the more I think about them, the more I realized that they don’t make sense to me. Do I make sense?

I didn’t really like Eve. I found her to goes from one opposite to the other in a matter of seconds. This seemed strange to me. For example, she turns her back on what she was taught her whole life and her friends really easily. I know that she sees the truth about their future out of the school, but I feel like a normal character would try to find a rational explanation before turning her back on what she was told her whole life.

Of course, there’s also her reaction to Caleb. I found that she ended trusting him really fast considering she was told all her life that men were bad. Yet she falls for him fast. That’s another thing that annoying me. Look at the description. They tell us that she falls slowly for him, yet it wasn’t slow at all. I liked Caleb though, even if he something was almost presented as the Knight in shinning armor. I liked that he seems to be considerate for Eve, who has never face the reality of the outside world.

I have to say that the world made the book for me. I love the world Carey has created. That’s the main reason I really can’t wait to read the sequel Once. The other thing I really liked was Arden. I think the book would have been better if she had been the narrator. She was simply presented as a stronger character in my opinion.

Overall I liked it. It’s the kind of book that you can’t really explain completely why you liked it, but you still did.

Did I confuse you?

Review: The Pledge

Title: The Pledge
Author: Kimberly Derting
Series: The Pledge #1
Release Date: November 15th, 2011
Number of Pages: 323
Publisher: Margareth K. McElderry
Source: Bought

In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she's spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed.

Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can't be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country's only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime.

The premises for this book really got me intrigued. A world where the classes are delimited by language? Seriously? I thought it was a really great idea. Okay, I may be slightly biased, as I’m taking linguistic classes and I love languages, but still, I just had to read it. Plus, I love dystopian!

I was really excited at first to read it, but I have to say that it took me some times to really get into the story. There are so many things to set to make the world believable that it made the first few chapters a little slow, but one it got really started; I simply couldn’t put it down. The only downside to that is that the story ended being a little too short for me. I want more, I still want more (can’t wait to read the sequel). The ending was a little rushed for me, but I still love it. I just wished it could have a few more chapters to satisfy my thirst for this world.

The characters in this book all seems to have hundred of secrets. They all seem to be much more than what they may appear like. I really like following Charlie. I love her devotion to her family, especially to her little sister. She showed so much strength to protect it. I liked her two friends, Aron and Brook, but I have to say that I preferred Aaron at first, but Brook got more interesting as the novel went on. Max really got me curious, as he was such a mystery to me. I didn’t really guess the truth about who he is.

I really enjoyed this book. This is the kind of book that will please most dystopian lovers, as it is a great new idea of a dystopia. It was addicting for me, and I think that once you are past the first few chapters, you won’t be able to put it down.

Waiting on Wednesday (16)



 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It is an opportunity for us to show books we can't wait to get our hands on.

This week, I'm waiting for:


Title: Article 5
Author: Kristen Simmons
Release Date: February 14th, 2012
Publisher: Tor Teen

New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., have been abandoned.

The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes.

There are no more police—instead, there are soldiers. There are no more fines for bad behavior—instead, there are arrests, trials, and maybe worse. People who get arrested usually don't come back.


Seventeen-year-old Ember Miller is old enough to remember that things weren’t always this way. Living with her rebellious single mother, it’s hard for her to forget that people weren’t always arrested for reading the wrong books or staying out after dark. It’s hard to forget that life in the United States used to be different.


Ember has perfected the art of keeping a low profile. She knows how to get the things she needs, like food stamps and hand-me-down clothes, and how to pass the random home inspections by the military. Her life is as close to peaceful as circumstances allow.


That is, until her mother is arrested for noncompliance with Article 5 of the Moral Statutes. And one of the arresting officers is none other than Chase Jennings…the only boy Ember has ever loved.

Seriously, these 2012 Debut novels make me so excited for 2012! There are so many books I can’t wait to read and this is one of them. Who doesn’t love a good dystopia.

Review: The Future of Us

Title: The Future of Us
Author: Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
Series: None
Release Date: November 21st, 2011
Number of Pages: 356
Publisher: Razorbill
Source: Bought
It's 1996, and less than half of all American high school students have ever used the Internet.
Emma just got her first computer and an America Online CD-ROM.
Josh is her best friend. They power up and log on--and discover themselves on Facebook, fifteen years in the future.
Everybody wonders what their Destiny will be. Josh and Emma are about to find out.

This was one book I was really excited to read. After all, how could I not be excited about a new book form Jay Asher (I love Thirteen Reasons Why!). I thought it would make me a little nostalgic, but I may be a little too young for that. A lot of the references were a little lost to me, being only five at the time. Is it strange that I don’t remember a time without a computer? (scary, but true) That’s one of the great aspects of the book. I think it will attract to older readers because of that. It took me a while to get into the books because of all the references, but once I got over them, I couldn’t put it down.

One of the main ideas of this book is how every choice affects our lives. Emma tries to change her future through her actions, checking every time to say how it affected her future life. One of the things that made me think though is the reaction they have when they see their Facebook pages. It reminded me of the fact that most of us weren’t too interested in sharing that much info online, only to end up putting everything about us on those pages. It feels strange, doesn’t?

I love the story. I ended up cheering for certain characters or wanting to scream at certain characters to grow up. I really liked the main characters, Emma and Josh (but I preferred Josh, to be honest). Emma was fun and entertaining, but she was so dense some time! How could she not see what was right in front of her eyes! She is the one character I really wanted to scream at. Josh was simply lovable. I thought he was the perfect balance to Emma’s narration, giving us a different kind of voice about what was going on. Of course, I can’t really forget about the two best friends, who were the perfect relief when the drama was present between Josh and Emma.

It was an amazing book that will probably please both the younger audience that may not remember those years, and the older that will love the nostalgic side.

2012 Book Challenges!

It’s the time of the year when everyone starts thinking about what Challenges they want to participate in. This year, there are a couple of challenges I really want to do. Right now, I’ve decided to do three different. Here they are!


First, of course, The 2012 Debut Author Challenge hosted by Kristi from the Story Siren. It is kind of the biggest one around. The goal is to read at least 12 young-adult or middle-grade debut. There are so many debuts I’m excited about that I couldn’t really resist.

My list:
  1. Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic
  2. The Catastrophic History of You an Me by Jess Rothenberg
  3. Someone Else’s Life by Katie Dale
  4. Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay
  5. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
  6. Illuminate by Aimee Agresti
  7. Slide by Jill Hathaway
  8. Cracked by K.M. Waltson
  9. Fracture by Megan Miranda
  10. The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges
  11. The Tempest by Julie Cross
  12. Cinder by Marissa Meyer.

Now, that’s only twelve, but there are more that I want to read. There are also a couple of debut novel I’ve already read, or that I will read before the end of 2011 that I haven’t put in the list.


I’ve discovered so many authors because of DAC 2011. Now, many of these authors are releasing their second book in 2012, so I have to say I’m pretty excited about those too. That’s why I want to do this challenge.

My list:
  1. Wings of the Wicked by Courtney Allison Moulton
  2. A Million Suns by Beth Revis
  3. Insurgent by Veronica Roth
  4. Dreamless by Josephine Angelini
  5. Truth by Julia Karr
  6. Until I Die by Amy Plum
  7. Perception by Kim Harrington
  8. Wanderlove
  9. Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter
  10. Havoc by Jeff Sampson
  11. A Fractured Light by Jocelyn Davies
  12. Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel

Again, this is only a fraction of what I want to read.

Lastly:

The TBR Pile Reading Challenge

The goal is to read books release in 2011 or earlier. I have so many books to read that I think it’s a great challenge to push me to read what I have on my shelves.

My goal is to read between 21 and 30 (Sweet Kiss Level)

I can’t way what I’m going to read yet, as I don’t know what I’ll have time to read before the end of the year…

So these are the challenges I’m taking so far!

Are you guys planning to join any challenges?

In My Mailbox 32

In My Mailbox is a Meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren. It is a way to share with other bloggers what you got during the week.


I went a little crazy at Indigo this week. Buying books is one of the things that never fail to make me happier, which I really needed this week.

I went Monday, hoping to buy Shatter Me, Indigo’s website said there were 11, which made me really excited as I couldn’t wait to read it. In the end, I never found it, but I ended up buying 4 books anyway, as Indigo have their “Mystery” Gift card. I bought:

The Remplacement by Brenna Yovanoff
If I Tell by Janet Gurtler
Crave by Melissa Darnell 

I was also disappointed that there were no copies of The Pledge in any of their bookstores in the Montreal Area. It was one of the books I couldn’t wait to read, so I ended buying it online with another book, as shipping is free over 25$

 Succubus on Top by Richelle Mead
The Pledge by Kimberly Derting

I then went back to Indigo on Wednesday after class (the fact that my University is that close to a bookstore has been pretty expensive this semester… Just saying…). I was still looking for Shatter Me, but the still couldn’t find it. I think they lost the box of Shatter Me… Well, I wasn’t planning on buying books until I saw this first book, which comes out on the 21st.  Now, how can I only buy one book? I ended up buying four to used my mystery gift card, which gave me 20$! So all was well…


The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
dancergirl by Carol M. Tanzman 
Saving June by Hannah Harrington 
Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday

Finally, I had this amazing surprise this week, which really made me dance, scream; want to kiss the person that sent it to me…. I wasn’t expecting it and it really made my week. I got this beautifully ARC from Simon&Schuster, which I devoured of course.


Fever by Lauren DeStefano 

Thank you SO MUCH Simon&Schuster!!

This is what I got this week! What did you get?

Review: Saving June

Title: Saving June
Author: Hannah Harrington
Series: None
Release Date: November 22nd, 2011
Number of Pages: 336
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Source: NetGalley

When her older sister commits suicide and her divorcing parents decide to divide the ashes, Harper Scott takes her sister's urn to the one place June always wanted to go: California. On the road with her best friend, plus an intriguing guy with a mysterious connection to June, Harper discovers truths about her sister, herself and life.

This is the kind of book that I find the hardest to really talk about without sounding like a complete idiot. This is the kind of book that leaves me speechless, because it shares the emotions beautifully. It is so easy to sound fake or cheesy when you try to write an emotional book.

This is why I loved this book: I believed in the emotions. I was captivated by Harper’s grief, by her need to do things right for her sister. This is the kind of book that makes me cry.  This is the kind of books that will make you forget about what’s going on around you. This is the kind of books that makes you feel like you know the characters.

Everything was beautifully done for me. I was falling for Jake and all his music knowledge. He was the guy I would want by my side if I had to go through something like that. Still, for me, Harper made the book. She made her way to my heart, even thought she isn’t the most loveable characters. She doesn’t try to be, which is one of the thing that I loved about her. She wasn’t the vulnerable character that you simply feel bad for. Harper impressed me by her strength, without making me feel like didn’t care. It was easy to see that she cared for her sister. Yet, she was able to stay strong through most of the things life threw in her way, because she had to do this one thing for her sister.

This book is the kind of novel that left me speechless, and that made me feel what the main character was feeling without much effort. Yet, it never felt too heavy for me, as Hannah Harrington was able to balance everything to make it the beautiful story that it is.

Review: dancergirl


Title: dancergirl
Author: Carol M. Tanzman
Series: WiHi #1
Release Date: November 15th, 2011
Number of Pages: 248
Publisher: Harlequin
Source: NetGalley
EVER FEEL LIKE SOMEONE’S WATCHING YOU?
ME TOO.
BUT LATELY IT’S BEEN HAPPENING IN MY ROOM.
WHEN I’M ALONE.
A friend posted a video of me dancing online, and now I’m no longer Alicia Ruffino. I’m dancergirl. And suddenly it’s like me against the world—everyone’s got opinions.
My admirers want more, the haters hate, my best friend Jacy—even he’s acting weird. And some stalker isn’t content to just watch anymore.
Ali. dancergirl. Whatever you know me as, however you’ve seen me online, I’ve trained my whole life to be the best dancer I can be. But if someone watching has their way, I could lose way more than just my love of dancing. I could lose my life.
 Wow! I was really surprised by this book. Not that I was expecting it to be bad. Far from it. I just didn’t expect it to really keep me on my toes as much as it did. I was expecting more a drama than that kind of mystery, which is why I was nicely surprised.

I think this book will probably get some teenagers to realize the impact of your online presence. That’s what I liked. It started as a couple of video filmed and staged to look slightly stalkerish, only to end up getting the attention of a real stalker. There was just enough creepiness with the videos being posted online to make people realize that posting everything online may not be the wisest idea.

The book is fast paced, as it is a little short (only 250 pages). It was slightly confusing at first I must say, as there were a lot of characters that were suddenly feature without really being introduced. That’s probably the only thing that was really missing for me. I like knowing a little more about the characters that are there for more than just two or three sentences.

Alicia may have been making me scream with some of her choices, especially when it came down to her best friend Jacy, but I still really liked her. I wished we could have known more about her best friends though. From what I’ve read, I really like Jacy, so a little more from him would have been nice (in the next book perhaps???). The other characters really didn’t stand out that much, which is understandable with a book that short.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I really got captivated by the mystery surrounding the stalker. It really got me hooked and I can’t wait to read more from Carol M. Tanzman.  If you’re looking for a fast and captivating book, you should probably give it a shot!

Waiting on Wednesday (15)

 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It is an opportunity for us to show books we can't wait to get our hands on.

This week, I'm waiting for:


Title: Cracked
Author: K.M. Walton
Release Date: January 3rd 2012
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Sometimes there's no easy way out.
Victor hates his life. He has no friends, gets beaten up at school, and his parents are always criticizing him. Tired of feeling miserable, Victor takes a bottle of his mother's sleeping pills—only to wake up in the hospital.
Bull is angry, and takes all of his rage out on Victor. That makes him feel better, at least a little. But it doesn't stop Bull's grandfather from getting drunk and hitting him. So Bull tries to defend himself with a loaded gun.
When Victor and Bull end up as roommates in the same psych ward, there's no way to escape each other or their problems. Which means things are going to get worse—much worse—before they get better….

I’m always excited to read Debut Authors, and I have to say that this one caught my attention. It looks like an emotions filled book that will probably have me hooked.

Review: Wherever You Go


Title: Wherever You Go
Author: Heather Davis
Series: None
Release Date: November 14th, 2011
Number of Pages: 320
Publisher: Harcourt Children’s Book
Source: NetGalley

Seventeen-year-old Holly Mullen has felt lost and lonely ever since her boyfriend, Rob, died in a tragic accident. The fact that she has to spend most of her free time caring for her little sister and Alzheimer’s-stricken grandfather doesn’t help. But Holly has no idea that as she goes about her days, Rob’s ghost is watching over her. He isn’t happy when he sees his best friend, Jason, reach out to help Holly with her grandfather—but as a ghost, he can do nothing to stop it. Is his best friend really falling for his girlfriend?
     As Holly wonders whether to open her heart to Jason, the past comes back to haunt her. Her grandfather claims to be communicating with the ghost of Rob. Could the messages he has for Holly be real? And if so, how can the loved ones Rob left behind help his tortured soul make it to the other side?
     Told from the perspectives of Holly, Jason, and Rob,Wherever You Go is is a poignant story about making peace with the past, opening your heart to love, and finding the courage to move forward into the light.

Wow. I have to say I was nicely surprised by this book. Why was I surprised? Well, at first, there were a couple of thing that really bugged me, but I quickly forgot about them once I got into the story. It is a beautiful and emotional story that will probably get you after a couple of chapters.

Now, I just said that there were a couple of things that annoyed me, and you probably wonder what it is. One of the thing that I didn’t really like is the way the narration is made. We have three type of narration: the first person (“I”-Holly) the second person (“you” –Rob) and the third person narration (“He” Jason). It may have made it easier to know who was talking, but it took me a while to get over all those pronouns. I don’t really like when you are the narrator. I can’t explain why, but it always takes me out of the story.

Once I got over that, the characters and their story really captivated me. This book is about love, grief, and depression. I always find it hard to criticize the story and the characters when it comes to a story that emotional, especially when I really get into the story. Why? I simply think that if the emotions and the message is well written, the rest won’t matter as much. If I stopped while reading the book to really analyse the characters, the story or the plot, maybe I would find some things that would have bothered me. Right now, I don’t think they matter, because Heather Davis did her job beautifully when it came down to making us feel.

A beautiful soty that makes you realized that everything may not be as it seems. If you like emotional books, this one is for you.
