Book Spotlight #12 Avalon High by Meg Cabot

 

If you like medieval history, or if the story of King Arthur intrigues you, I recommend this book to you. King Arthur makes his return in our modern world, and when the past and the future collide, it get’s messy real fast. This book is fast-paced and a quick read. I loved it and I’m sure you will love it too.

Book Title: Avalon High

Author: Meg Cabot

Originally Published: December 15th, 2006

Goodreads Summary:

To newcomer Ellie, Avalon High seems like a typical American high school, complete with jocks, nerds, cheerleaders, and even the obligatory senior class president, quarterback, and all-around good guy. But it doesn’t take Ellie long to suspect that something weird is going on beneath the glossy surface of this tranquil hall of learning. As she pieces together the meaning of this unfolding drama, she begins to recognize some haunting Arthurian echoes, causing her to worry that she has become just a pawn in mythic history. A powerful novel by the author of The Princess Diaries.

Book Spotlight #11: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

wither

I am so excited to post this week’s Book Spotlight! I haven’t posted in a while because school has started again and it has been pretty hectic. So I come to you today with a dystopian novel that reminded me very much of The Handmaid’s Tale by Maragert Atwood. It left me with mixed feelings towards a certain character. I really wanted to hate him for what he stood for, but at the same time, it was impossible to hate him. The book ends in a cliffhanger, but luckily for you readers, all the books in the trilogy are published (I, however, was unlucky and had to wait months for the final installment).

Book Title: Wither

Author: Lauren DeStefano

Originally Published: March 22nd, 2011

Goodreads Summary:

By age sixteen, Rhine Ellery has four years left to live. She can thank modern science for this genetic time bomb. A botched effort to create a perfect race has left all males with a lifespan of 25 years, and females with a lifespan of 20 years. Geneticists are seeking a miracle antidote to restore the human race, desperate orphans crowd the population, crime and poverty have skyrocketed, and young girls are being kidnapped and sold as polygamous brides to bear more children.

When Rhine is kidnapped and sold as a bride, she vows to do all she can to escape. Her husband, Linden, is hopelessly in love with her, and Rhine can’t bring herself to hate him as much as she’d like to. He opens her to a magical world of wealth and illusion she never thought existed, and it almost makes it possible to ignore the clock ticking away her short life. But Rhine quickly learns that not everything in her new husband’s strange world is what it seems. Her father-in-law, an eccentric doctor bent on finding the antidote, is hoarding corpses in the basement. Her fellow sister wives are to be trusted one day and feared the next, and Rhine is desperate to communicate to her twin brother that she is safe and alive. Will Rhine be able to escape–before her time runs out?

Together with one of Linden’s servants, Gabriel, Rhine attempts to escape just before her seventeenth birthday. But in a world that continues to spiral into anarchy, is there any hope for freedom?

Book Spotlight #9 Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler

bittersweet

This week’s spotlight is taken by one of my favorite YA contemporary books of all time, Bittersweet. Sarah Ockler has mastered the art of creating a hybrid YA contemporary book. Bittersweet is both deep and fluffy. The characters in this story deal with real life issues that we can all relate too. This is another book that made me want to eat lots of cake while I was reading it. I don’t know why I didn’t heed to the warning on the cover, a heart shaped puzzle pastry and the sprinkled sugar before it was too late. Trust me, you won’t regret reading this book or eating all the cake it makes you crave.

Book Title: Bittersweet

Goodreads Summary:

Once upon a time, Hudson knew exactly what her future looked like. Then a betrayal changed her life, and knocked her dreams to the ground. Now she’s a girl who doesn’t believe in second chances… a girl who stays under the radar by baking cupcakes at her mom’s diner and obsessing over what might have been.

So when things start looking up and she has another shot at her dreams, Hudson is equal parts hopeful and terrified. Of course, this is also the moment a cute, sweet guy walks into her life… and starts serving up some seriously mixed signals. She’s got a lot on her plate, and for a girl who’s been burned before, risking it all is easier said than done.

It’s time for Hudson to ask herself what she really wants, and how much she’s willing to sacrifice to get it. Because in a place where opportunities are fleeting, she knows this chance may very well be her last…

Book Spotlight #8: Angelfall by Ee

This week’s Book Spotlight will feature Young Adult Paranormal/Fantasy/Sci-fi:

P1070454

I really enjoyed Angelfall! The theme of the novel was a lot darker than I am used to reading, and sometimes I would get so creeped out that I had to stop reading. It definitely shed a darker light on angels, as opposed to the light, bright, and goodness they are usually associated with. Angelfall is a great novel. Just a heads up, it contains unexpected plot twists, and a slight cliffhanger.

Book Title: Angelfall

Author: Susan Ee

Originally Published: May 21st, 2011

Goodreads Summary:

It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back.

Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.

Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl.

Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco where she’ll risk everything to rescue her sister and he’ll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.

Book Spotlight #7: Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

So, I know that this Book Spotlight is late. Why? I absolutely forgot about it. I apologize you guys. I don’t even know how it happened honestly, but I will be better about my posts from now on. I normally don’t do this which is why I am in a state of shock. Anyways, let’s continue with what you really want to read.

For this week’s spotlight we are going back to YA contemporary novels and the one that I will be focusing the spotlight on is:

Catching Jordan by Miranda
Catching Jordan by Miranda Keneally

I really really enjoyed Catching Jordan. Having a girl be the captain of the football team and play better than any of the other guys on the team was freaking awesome. It is a book about the unconventional. We have sports, romance, family, and friendship. Pretty much it has it all. Just thinking about this book makes me want to read it again. Yup, it’s that awesome.

Book title: Catching Jordan

Author: Miranda Kenneally

Originally Published: December 1st, 2011

Goodreads Summary:

Whoever said football and girls don’t mix hasn’t read Catching Jordan. I couldn’t put it down ” — Simone Elkeles, New York Times bestselling author of the Perfect Chemistry series

ONE OF THE BOYS

What girl doesn’t want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn’t just surrounded by hot guys, though-she leads them as the captain and quarterback of her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys and that’s just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university.

But everything she’s ever worked for is threatened when Ty Green moves to her school. Not only is he an amazing QB, but he’s also amazingly hot. And for the first time, Jordan’s feeling vulnerable. Can she keep her head in the game while her heart’s on the line?
