image

Book Beginning:

You saw me before I saw you. In the airport, that day in August, you had that look in your eyes, as though you wanted something from me, as though you’d wanted it for a long time. No one had ever looked at me like that before, with that kind of intensity. It unsettled me, surprised me, I guess. Those blue, blue eyes, icy blue, looking back at me as if I could warm them up. They’re pretty powerful, you know, those eyes, pretty beautiful, too.

Friday 56:

You looked bored when I caught up with you. “I don’t know why you keep trying,” you said. “There’s no way out.”

Dear partnersinbooks,
Hi! I was wondering if you'll be at Madeleine Roux and Claudia Gray book signing this saturday? :) xx

Hi! Sure will! Will you be there? :-)

My Summary:

With the Spores War killing everyone from the ages of 21-59, only the Starters and Enders are left.

Callie, Tyler and Michael having no home and food. Callie can’t just stand there and not do anything especially with Tyler sick. She goes to Prime Destinations. But what starts as a way to get easy money, ends up being the worst decision she’s ever made.

With nonstop revelation, will she be able to stop Prime Destinations?

My Thoughts:

The first time I read the synopsis of Starters, I automatically thought how cool it was. A world where there is only the old and the young. Then we met Lissa Price and she told us how she thought of the concept. She was in a clinic about to get a vaccine and then there was an announcement where only the old and the young were to get the vaccine. (Absurd right?) But that’s how it all started. 

With all the Starter’s parents gone, they have to fend for themselves especially those without grandparents just like Callie and Tyler. They lost everything the moment they lost their parents. Callie doesn’t have to just fend for herself but also for Tyler, her sick brother. 

She doesn’t have to take care of Tyler alone though cause she has Michael, her best friend. Yes, Michael. You can’t imagine how kind this dude is. Seriously even if Callie is gone doing things, Michael does everything to make sure Tyler’s safe. I don’t think there’s a better way to get to a girls heart than to truly love their siblings too, right? I fell in love with Michael, please end up together.

Because of desperation, she ended up in Prime Destinations. She needed the money so she had no choice but to rent her body to an Ender. Let’s talk about how freaky this “renting” thing is. You, youthful person, would be inhabited by a hundred +++ year old man/women that is just really bizarre. I would never do that but if you were Callie, you’d understand why she did it. They have no food. Tyler is sick. They have no home. Callie just really really loves her brother. 

I told you how I love Michael right? then Blake happens. BLAKE. I’m sorry but I don’t know who to choose. Okay, so Michael is really kind but Blake is just perfect so sweet, handsome, kind too. I feel like I’m betraying Michael (Don’t worry baby, I still love you) but Blake is seriously making me fall. 

So Callie’s chip malfunctions and she ends up finding out all the secrets of Prime. This book is just action all around. The ending ruined me. All the things I found out… I didn’t like it at all! WHY WOULD _______ BE_______?! I was frustrated! I couldn’t handle it. Though the way the issue was resolved seemed so fast that I was like, “What just happened?” but with that ending, I needed more. Off to Enders!

Happy Reading!!

Book Spine Poetry Sunday [1]

image

Book Spine Poetry is a photo meme that involves lining up or stacking books in a particular order so the titles on the book spines create a poem. The idea originated from a photo project created by artist Nina Katchadourian. The first time I saw this was from our local bookstore, Fullybooked.

We enjoyed doing this so much that we want it to be a weekly meme. To join, all you have to do is post your Book Spine Poetry every Sunday with the #BookSpinePoetrySunday. In your post, you can direct people to this post so others can join too! Also, we would love to see your Book Spine Poetry so please tag us if you could. Enjoy!

We present to you our very first Book Spine Poetry created by our sister, Bianca.

For this week, I have chosen The Program By Suzanne Young!

image

Book Beginning:

The air in the room tastes sterile.The lingering scent of bleach is mixing with the fresh white paint on the walls, and I wish my teacher would open the window to let in a breeze. But we’re on the third floor so the pane is sealed shut—- just in case anyone gets the urge to jump. 

Friday 56:

I stop squirming, but James doesn’t let me go. He nods his chin at Miller, “We’re clear that Sloane’s mine, right?” he asks, not sounding combative, just curious. “That I love her and won’t let her go, not even to you. You know that?” I wonder what happened to do the “let’s not upset him” argument.

Just finished Starters, currently reading Enders

Cute covers!

Jennifer E. Smith and Lissa Price’s Book Signing Madness with PartnersinBooks

image

Last September 21, 2014 was the Jennifer E. Smith and Lissa Price book signing!!

image

image

We were there pretty early which made us number 52 and 54. I have no idea what happened to 53 but oh, well.

image

image

We were not just with Kyra, our cousin, but we were also with Inah, a fellow book blogger! It was so fun spending time with her!

image

Here we all are just waiting for the book signing to start. 

image

When they came out, loud screaming yet again! They are just really nice, you guys. So down to earth and friendly. 

image

When it was finally time to meet Jen Smith and Lissa Price, we were both very excited!!

Jen Smith is so soft spoken and nice that you’ll just want to be around her all the time. She said we were cute so yes, we like her very much. Miedjel was like I’m Team Owen but I was like I’m Team Graham then Jen was like no love for Oliver? She was sooo cute. But of course we love Oliver too! She writes really small which is adorable.

(The lighting on stage really sucks though. *groans*)

Lissa Price is simply the best! She actually takes time to talk to each and everyone and ask how they are. She also called us cute. (Oh yeah, two out of two!! The best day!!!) She actually asked us if we were twins! We’re starting to wonder why people keep asking that now a days… She also asked us what grade we were and when I said, “I’m in college,” she couldn’t believe it. I guess I’ll always be young at heart. I’m not sure it’s a good or bad thing. lol She gave us some swag too which was awesome!

image

(Sorry dude, there was only one pic and you look kind of funny but I had no choice but it’s cute anyway!)

Here we are with our signed books. We are happy girls!

Here are our signed books!

(So itsy bitsy right?)

Such a great event until the next book signing!

"If fate sent you an email, would you answer?"

My Summary:

Graham would never have thought that sending an email to a wrong person about his pet pig, Wilbur, would change his life forever. Ellie and Graham start emailing each other about anything and everything except for their names and who they really are.

But when an opportunity arises for Graham to go to Ellie’s home town, he had to take it. He can’t wait to meet her in person. But when they finally do, will they be able to surpass their hidden identities?

Being from different worlds, can they work out? 

My Thoughts:

I love how this book starts with email exchanges. It’s just so unique and cute so you get really into it. My initial thoughts are: First, okay, it’s kind of scary to talk to strangers via the internet cause you never know if the person you’re talking to is sort of a perverted serial killer but then again would a perverted serial killer have a pet pig named Wilbur? The chances are very slim sooooo let’s forget that possibility for a second. Then they start talking about other cutesy things and they sort of start flirting. Would a perverted serial killer spend so much time with you talking about nonsense things? Maybe so, but Ellie still took the risk. I would take it too if it would lead me to my own Graham Larkin!

Here I am typing GDL824@yahoo.com still waiting for freaking Graham Larkin to reply to me but no such luck.

For a reason that will make you grin like a loony, Graham starts shooting in the location where Ellie lives. They’ve been emailing for months now and so they kind of start developing feelings for each other which is really unfair cause my email is just full of spam not one single email about a pig named Wilbur. 

The first time they meet there was this intense staring contest but they didn’t even know that they’re already staring at the eyes of the person they’ve been emailing for months. So it starts off with this crazy mistake of identity which is just really funny. I was just thinking the whole time, “That’s not her!!!! Stop assuming,” but the moment they truly meet is just really cute and great. Just like Graham cause he’s really cute and great too.

I’m constantly being asked for blog recommendations and I figured that I should have an updated list of blogs/people that I love. It’s a mix of my friends and people I love talking to, people I admire from afar (maybe we kind of talk or not at all but I’m shy so *hides*) and blogs that I’m…

You’re the sweetest, Rebecca! Thank you so much. Hugs and kisses! You are also very very awesome and just so you know every time I see the Book Thief, I remember you!

Yey! Another bookhaul! ♥
