Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay Book Review:

Love and Leftovers 

by Sarah Tregay

Published: Dec 27th, 2011

by Katherine Tegen Books

My wish
is to fall
cranium over Converse
in dizzy, daydream-worthy love.

                                                      (If only it were that easy.)

When her parents split, Marcie is dragged from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She leaves behind her friends, a group of freaks and geeks called the Leftovers, including her emo-rocker boyfriend, and her father. By the time Labor Day rolls around, Marcie suspects this "vacation" has become permanent. She starts at a new school where a cute boy brings her breakfast and a new romance heats up.

But understanding love, especially when you've watched your parents' affections end, is elusive. What does it feel like, really? Can you even know it until you've lost it

This book wasn't what I was expecting I was expecting something I was going to absolutely love but it was just one of those books you read and get the same feeling if your reading it or not. I was dissapointed a little because Sarah Tregay is a great author but the book wasn't for me.

This book was about a girl named Marcie who used to live in Idaho but her parents forced to live in a new place (New Hampshire). She did not like the idea of being in New Hampshire and wanted to go back to her normal life to see her friends and her "emo" boyfriend. She had to start a new school with new people and she met this guy in which she got interested and had some relationships for him. But then her mom found something out and sended her daughter back to Idaho and she at first wanted to stay at New Hampshire and then some conflicts happened when she returned but then it all came back to normal.

This book was too obvious I always knew what was going to happen. I always like books were I never know what to expect but I have to say this isn't the worst book I have read but is not the best one either is in between. I would have liked if the book have had a better plot and have had a better unexpected ending were I would have been left thinking. After I finish the book I was just like this is over and kept thinking what if the author would have change some things would it have been better. This book is something you should read when you feel like reading a really really light book that is obvious.

I give this book 2/5 :S , I would only recommend this book if your never scared to read a book after a not so great review. I mean everyone is different I might have not liked this book but someone else might love it. YERP. Just saying.

                                                   Not really for me... 

P.S. Leave a comment about anything related to this book... :D

Things I look for in a book:

1. Title 
What do I mean by title?
I mean a title that sound interesting and that includes the main point of the book but doesn't give out what is going to happen for example if I see a book with a title of " I want BK" that is not going to catch my eye unless it has a cute cover.

2. Cover
Yes, Yes I know covers shouldn't mind because my mom always told me that the image of something or a person isn't really what is inside but I always try to get cute covers to make my bookshelf look absolutely amazing. I like creative original covers which show detail and makes my imagination travel to Jupiter.

3. Sypnopsis
An interesting mysterious info which includes the main idea of the book but does not tell too much of it either because I hate spoilers. I know I seen some books that I have bought in the past and then I realize the synopsis basically said what was going to happen through out the book and that is a big turn off for me.

4. Goodreads Rating, Book Bloggers, or Book Tubers
Yes ! all the books I have bought or checked in from the library are all books I seen other book bloggers or book tubers recommend. Goodreads is a great site were I always check how good or bad a book is. I know sometimes the rating is different than other people opinion's because everyone is different but my rating almost always matches Goodreads ratings and my fave book bloggers and book tubers.

5. The Length
Isn't that so embarrassing to say? Yes sometimes I don't want to read a book because of how big it is which is why I have not read Twilight series because the book scares me. My biggest fear is carrying that heavy book reading it and then realizing is not as exciting as I hope it to be.

6. Author
Sometimes I find that if I have read a book from an author and I loved it and like the author's style of writing than I would like the author's next books so I buy them to try out.

7. How it feels
Feels? Wth is this girl talking about?
Well what I mean by that is that you know those books you touch and they are rough I don't know how to explain it but when I hold a page I want it to feel normal. I know, I know your probably like let me skip this part because this girl is weird.

8. How it smells
Ewww? some books smell really really bad in fact the book I read called "Love and Leftovers" almost made me faint which is why I wanted to finish the book really fast because the smell was killing me. I had to spray febreze 4 times and it didn't work, that is how strong it was because Febreze is amazing it always heels bad odor. LOL

9. Plot
I have read books that basically have nothing to solve because the book is all about happy things. I like a plot that doesn't look fake, what do I mean by that? I mean a book that has a realistic plot. OMG you know what I hate? of course not I hate when I read an entire book and the freaking plot or problem wasn't resolved by the end of the book. So I end up thinking what would have been different if other events have had happened during the book. YERP.

10. YA
I basically like YA right now because I am a TEEN duh! lol well no! there are also other adults that like YA but I think when I grow up I would hopefully be reading adults book because that way my vocabulary would get better. if I read a adult book now I would be blanked out because I wouldn't understand half of the things the author says or because of the vocabulary. i think. YERP.

Well this are 10 things I look for in a book before I decide to buy it.

What do you look for in a book? Do you agree or dissagree with me?

Have a nice day.

Cursed by Jennifer L. Armentrout: ARC Review

I have to say that this book was absolutely a page turner for me a book that got me tied to it from the start. I love the characters even though at first I kind of hated them and believed the worst out of some characters. This book is about a girl named Ember who gets on a car accident with her parents and dies but her sister has a special gift that when she touches something she could bring it back to life. So Ember's sister revived her but now Ember has a gift that when she touches someone the person or animal (anything that lives) could die. Isn't that so strange ? which is one of the reasons I decided to keep reading this book to know if there was a way for her to control her gift. This book is something different I decided to read because I barely read books like this I mostly read contemporary romance books but this book got me tied up to this genre. Ember, her sister, and her mom got taken away by Hayden and his father to this mansion were she learned so many new stuff and intriguing things happened at this mansion that would leave your mouth opened.

For me something that I loved about this book is that there was never a moment were I felt bored from reading this book because on every page line or chapter there was something that made me get surprise happy or even amazed by. I love Jennifer L. Armentrout style of writing I would give her style of writing a 5/5. Hayden was my favorite character out of the whole book he helped Ember when no one else did and always said nice sweet things to her so she could feel better. The book included some romance in it which made it more exciting. At first when Ember moved to the mansion she did not fit in because some people hated her "gift" but Hayden was always there to help her and try to control it. Is this a book I would recommend people to buy and try? YES absolutely this book is a 5/5 stars for me and I guarantee you would like this book as much as I did, at least I hope so.

Thanks Spencer Hill Press for sending me this ARC.

Cursed Update:

I am about 30% in the book and I am seriously loving it the first chapter was a little too slow for me but then it went a normal pace the pace I like books to go. I guess all books have slow pace at the beginning because they have to explain and illustrate characters and setting and all kind of stuff. I have to say so far this is a 5/5 star book it is really a page turner and I am liking it more than I though I was going to like it. This book has been on my shelf for a full month and I was so lazy to read it because I though it was a really boring book that wasn't going to catch no interest in me but I am really liking it. But let's hope I don't get dissappointed at the end. :D

Comment if you would like to read this book if you have read it and liked it or any suggestions for my blog or anything random that comes in your mind because seriously there are so much random stuff I been thinking about lately lml. Have a nice day and enjoy this few days of summer until school starts omg just 2 weeks for my school to start oh no. :/ Lmaoo. Peace.

Just Release it Books I am unpatiently Waiting for:

Isn't it so frustrating when you finish reading a book from a sequel and you find out the other book is being release the NEXT YEAR I hate it because I am so inpatient for some reason but I also hate when they post awesomeee book sypnopsis that catch my eye and the book isn't released or takes to much time. Well this are some of the books I am inpatiently waiting for.
Comment with the books you are waiting for to be released ^.^

Warning: this are only some of the books I am impatiently waiting for if I gave you the full list it would take me a year (sarcasm attempt) but seriously my list is at least of 25 books.

Have a nice day hope you like and follow my blog ^-^

My Reading List Pile:

1. Cursed Jeniffer L. Armentrout (ARC)
2. Saving June by Hanna Barrington
3. Yesterday by C. K. Kelly Martin (ARC)
4. Delirium by Lauren Oliver
5. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

I am Back ^.^

Hey I lost interest in reading books and posting on this blog for two weeks but I am back for good I promise. I am really sad how I have not read a single book for a long time but that was because I have not found a good book to get me out of this but I am going to read three ARC's I have to read before they come out. Reading is something that everyone should enjoy so I would look for the type of book that would make keep reading for ever but right after I finish the ARC's. If you guys have any suggestions for this thing kind of like a dead end were I just feel like I don't want to read because of television (TV Show) or the internet. What do you guys do when you get into the mood were reading a book just makes you tired, and you find any excuse to skip reading a book.

Have a nice day.

Surviving High School Book Review:

 What would you do if you could not eat ice-cream! Couldn't have a boyfriend? or Have time to hang out with friends? 
*I seriously don't know how I would react or do if I was in the position of the great character of Emily Kressler.

Awesome (Check)
Interesting (Check)
Page Turner (Check)

I seriously have no other words to describe this book, I truly recommend this YA contemporary with romance as well. This is my favorite genre out of all of them and I have to say that after reading this book it made my mood go from normal to excited. What are the reasons I have for my mood to go from normal to excited? no idea, probably it is because this book since page 1 (or may I say Page 4 were it really started) made me keep flipping the pages not only because the characters and the theme was incredibly awesome but it was all related to a girl who was following a dream of becoming a professional swimmer who competed and practiced a lot and did not have a normal life like the kids her age. Not only did she not eat ice cream.. Yes ice-cream! but she had to always sleep at a certain time she couldn't have boyfriends, or skip practices. Her dad was someone who pushed her a lot (too much I would say) but that is what parents do I guess they push a lot so us teenagers could pursue our dreams.

This book had a strong message which opened my eyes and thought me that it is really important to follow your dreams but not in a way that you miss on life and don't see your friends after school or have fun. Not only did this book had a strong message but it included romance as well.. What could I say? this book is complete book which I give it a 5/5 stars Yea stars! If I were you I would try to get this book and read it as soon as possible I truly recommend this book. I am not saying that everyone would love it because everyone has different opinions but what I am saying is that in my opinion this is an awesome book who has taught me a lot while reading it. I am glad Hip Scouts gave me the opportunity to read this ARC and see how awesome and exciting this book actually is. Well enough talk just go and try this book because I recommend it. Have a nice day.

Yay: Super Excited

I received Surviving High School by M. Doty (ARC) and I am really loving this book, I am 3/4 in the book so hopefully I would have this read by today and post a book review about this book. This book is a page turner it keeps me reading non- stop so I would have to leave you guys and keep reading this awesome book because is messing with my head and is telling me "Hida, Please come back to reading me". Lol that was a joke but really this book is absolutely amazing so hopefully when the book comes out in September you go buy it and read it or get it at your local library. Hopefully I won't be dissapointed at the end on this book. But anyways have a nice day it would go back on reading this book. Talk to you guys in a few hours after I am finished reading this book.
