Will the Time Come #174, October 2nd


Every Thursday I am going to list a book which I really want to read/keep meaning to get to. These are mostly books which have been on my shelf for awhile now but don't have to be, maybe you got it two weeks ago and really want to read it! Thanks to Jodie from Books for Company for this meme!

With her now-classic novel Outlander, Diana Gabaldon introduced two unforgettable characters — Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser—delighting readers with a story of adventure and love that spanned two centuries. Now Gabaldon returns to that extraordinary time and place in this vivid, powerful follow-up to Outlander....

For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland’s majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones ... about a love that transcends the boundaries of time ... and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his....

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire’s spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart ... in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising ... and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves...

Why the time hasn't come yet...
Because I hadn't read Outlander yet. Now I have, and now I need to read this! And the rest of the series, and I'm lucky, because there was just recently a new release! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Random Reads #149, October 2nd


Random Reads is a monthly meme (that I'm going to do weekly) hosted by I'm Loving Books to read some books that have been on our TBR piles for a long time. Using Random.org, I got 2809 which turned out to be Moonset by Scott Tracey! It's been on my TBR pile since June 9th, 2012, and I added it because I enjoyed his other series, and I got it on NetGalley! Happy reading!

Unrequited: Review

From Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Kat Hartland loathes Unrequited, the world's biggest boy band. Is she the only girl in Sydney who can't be bothered with perfect-looking Angus Marsden?

Give her 5 Seconds of Summer. Now.

Or maybe the seriously-hot med student who rescued her on a train—and who could be Douglas Booth's twin! Perfect formal partner, much?

But when Kat comes face to face with Angus Marsden himself, things start to get complicated. Very. Throw in a deranged female popstar, final exams, a part in the musical and a mum who just doesn't get it—and where is her best friend?

When did life get so crazy? Kat's just an ordinary schoolgirl.

Isn't she?

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book! It was a lot of fun, and the situations that Kat gets into, they're so funny, because you think they wouldn't happen to just anybody, that they were meant for the stories of movies and shows, where things like this happen. But being in this world, it was real, and yeah, just great!

So yeah, the whole thing, the love square, was just hilarious. Between Kat and Joel, the two main connecting relationships, who meet on a train just before the Unrequited concert, that Kat was the girl in the seat that Angus liked, and her sisters and best friend created "Ella" so to draw Angus to Kat, and then the whole songwriter thing, it just seems like fate. Oh, and then there's Sarah, who's in love with Joel after being best friends with him for years, and who's in theatre together with Kat. Yeah, they're almost all directly connected, except for Sarah and Angus.

Yep, that's a fun situation to be entangled in, from having no boy prospects, to having two, and yeah, I could see an ending with Sarah and Joel together, and Kat and Angus together, and yeah, that's pretty much how it ended, and I really enjoyed that!

One thing that I didn't like so much, was that sometimes the characters would get more emotional then I would think the situation would warrant, thinking in all caps, or blowing things just a bit out of prospective. But yeah, that's the only thing!

This was a pretty great book, a really fun read, and if you like music, then you should really try this one out! Oh, and it's song is Somebody to You by The Vamps, featuring Demi Laovato, the later being the one to get me to try out the song!

Waiting on Wednesday #178, October 1st

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Expected Publication: Octber 28th, 2014
From Goodreads:
Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…
Catalyst by S.J. Kincaid
Expected Publication: Octber 28th, 2014
From Goodreads:
The explosive conclusion to the series reviewers have likened to Ender’s Game and “Hogwarts-in-Space”

This exhilarating, explosive, and heartrending conclusion to the Insignia trilogy brings Tom and his intelligent, passionate, and brave young friends stunning tests and dangerous confrontations and through to an impossible future they could never have predicted.

Tom Raines and his friends are eager to return to the Pentagonal Spire to continue training for the elite Intrasolar Forces, but they soon discover troubling changes: strict new regulations and the revelation that the Spire is under new military control. What begins as an irritating adjustment soon reveals a dangerous shift in reality. Those now in control are aligned with corporate sponsors and their ruthless agendas. And when the military academy begins welcoming new cadets with suspicious neural processors, the first step in a plan with horrifying worldwide ramifications, Tom is desperate to stop it, even if that means keeping secrets from his closest allies.

Then a mysterious figure, the other ghost in the machine, begins fighting against the corporations, but with methods even Tom finds shocking. And when the enemy comes for Tom, how much can Tom endure in the battle to save himself? He must decide if he can still fight when the odds of success seem to be sliding from his grip.

Oh, I want these books! Beautiful covers, and series that I just love, love, love! Even though I've already read Catalyst, which was just so freaking good! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Holly Hearts Hollywood: Review

From Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Holly Hart wants to be a star. She moves to Los Angeles from the small town of Cedar Junction, only to hear she’s too fat and ugly to be a famous singer. 

But when Shell Shocked Records looks past Holly’s plus-size and less-than-graceful-personality to offer her a recording contract, Holly cannot believe her good fortune. On closer inspection, however, the the record execs want Holly to do all the singing, and a thinner and more beautiful girl, Lacey, would lip-sync and get all the credit. Holly goes for it because after all, she wanted to sing. 

Contractually bound to secrecy, Holly is more than happy to sit backstage while Lacey shimmies in the limelight and basks in the fame. Before she knows it, Holly is friends with Serena, the pop-star daughter of a music-mogul, flirting with an intern, and developing a strange half-friendship with Lacey. 

When Grayson Frost, the biggest country star in America, and coincidentally, a former school bully begins dating Lacey, Holly hopes that he won’t recognize or torment her.

Through a series of embarrassing and weird events, Holly gets to know Grayson and learns that he is much nicer and more mature than he was four years ago. Holly is horrified when she starts falling for him. When Grayson admits he fell for Lacey's voice, what is a girl to do when she can’t legally tell the truth at the moment when the truth matters the most?

My Review:
I really identified with Holly. I'm plus sized, I'm shy, and I retreat into books, like music is her sanctuary-though I like to sing too, it's just for fun, not a dream like it is for her. And yeah, this was a nice, light book, one that I enjoyed!

I had a bad feeling about the contract, because it reminded me of the one scene in the musical Cinderella Story that stars Lucy Hale, where Hale's character sings, and her stepsister takes the credit, but on a much larger scale, and on contract, and she wasn't forced to do so, she made a decision between signing and doing what it said, or not signing, and probably not making it like she wanted. But really, signing it meant that it wasn't her that was making it, it was her voice.

And that's part of what she struggles with in the book, between fame and being nobody in the eyes of the world who nobody cares about you but your friends and family. And if it was the right decision for her to make, if she could've done things differently.

But where she ends up is a pretty good place, she's happy, things are going well, and yeah, the journey that her romance took, that was just incredible, and I really enjoyed them, and it was almost guy likes girl so he shows his affections through teasing, though some of it wasn't very nice at all, but they made it to a good place!

Yeah, this was a pretty great book, one I really enjoyed! Go on, go check it out!

So this week I want to read Holly Hearts Hollywood, Unrequited, H2O.
Seventeen-year-old Holly Hart wants to be a star. She moves to Los Angeles from the small town of Cedar Junction, only to hear she’s too fat and ugly to be a famous singer.

But when Shell Shocked Records looks past Holly’s plus-size and less-than-graceful-personality to offer her a recording contract, Holly cannot believe her good fortune. On closer inspection, however, the the record execs want Holly to do all the singing, and a thinner and more beautiful girl, Lacey, would lip-sync and get all the credit. Holly goes for it because after all, she wanted to sing.

Contractually bound to secrecy, Holly is more than happy to sit backstage while Lacey shimmies in the limelight and basks in the fame. Before she knows it, Holly is friends with Serena, the pop-star daughter of a music-mogul, flirting with an intern, and developing a strange half-friendship with Lacey.

When Grayson Frost, the biggest country star in America, and coincidentally, a former school bully begins dating Lacey, Holly hopes that he won’t recognize or torment her.

Through a series of embarrassing and weird events, Holly gets to know Grayson and learns that he is much nicer and more mature than he was four years ago. Holly is horrified when she starts falling for him. When Grayson admits he fell for Lacey's voice, what is a girl to do when she can’t legally tell the truth at the moment when the truth matters the most?
Seventeen-year-old Kat Hartland loathes Unrequited, the world's biggest boy band. Is she the only girl in Sydney who can't be bothered with perfect-looking Angus Marsden?

Give her 5 Seconds of Summer. Now.

Or maybe the seriously-hot med student who rescued her on a train—and who could be Douglas Booth's twin! Perfect formal partner, much?

But when Kat comes face to face with Angus Marsden himself, things start to get complicated. Very. Throw in a deranged female popstar, final exams, a part in the musical and a mum who just doesn't get it—and where is her best friend?

When did life get so crazy? Kat's just an ordinary schoolgirl.

Isn't she?
It's in the rain...and just one drop will kill you.

They don't believe it at first. Crowded in Zach's kitchen, Ruby and the rest of the partygoers laugh at Zach's parents' frenzied push to get them all inside as it starts to drizzle. But then the radio comes on with the warning, "It's in the rain! It's fatal, it's contagious, and there's no cure."

Two weeks later, Ruby is alone. Anyone who's been touched by rain or washed their hands with tap water is dead. The only drinkable water is quickly running out. Ruby's only chance for survival is a treacherous hike across the country to find her father-if he's even still alive.
