Dreamless (starcrossed #2)

find my review of the firt book HERE
by: Josephine Angelini

Can true love be forgotten?

As the only scion who can descend into the Underworld, Helen Hamilton has been given a nearly impossible task. By night she wanders through Hades, trying to stop the endless cycle of revenge that has cursed her family. By day she struggles to overcome the fatigue that is rapidly eroding her sanity. Without Lucas by her side, Helen is not sure she has the strength to go on.

Just as Helen is pushed to her breaking point, a mysterious new Scion comes to her rescue. Funny and brave, Orion shields her from the dangers of the Underworld. But time is running out--a ruthless foe plots against them, and the Furies' cry for blood is growing louder.

As the ancient Greek world collides with the mortal one, Helen's sheltered life on Nantucket descends into chaos. But the hardest task of all will be forgetting Lucas Delos.

love love love loved this book! every time i got a chance to read, that is, when i  wasen't over at someone place, studying, sleeping, etc.. i did. Helen is becoming stronger and stronger, the storyline was neat, with I'ts twist and turn's, there is a hefty love triangle, or at least that's what the book says. im sticking to Luke no matter what. if i had the opportunity, i would read this book in one sitting. THATS how good this book was, and that's how a book should be. althought i going to give this book a 4,5/5 because of (SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER)

I know that Lucas and helen is not cusins, they COULD not be, i mean her so-called father died 19 years ago, and she is 17? it took me like 2 sec to make the math..

Starcrossed (Starcrosed #1)

by: Josephine Angelini

Set on the island of Nantucket, STARCROSSED tells the tale of Helen Hamilton, a young woman whose destiny is forever altered when she meets Lucas Delos and tries to kill him in front of her entire high school. Which is terribly inconvenient, not only because Lucas is the most beautiful boy on the island, but also because Helen is so achingly shy she suffers physical pain whenever she is given too much attention.

Making matters worse, Helen is beginning to suspect she’s going crazy. Whenever she’s near Lucas or any member of his family she sees the ghostly apparitions of three women weeping bloody tears, and suffers the burden of an intense and irrational hate. She soon learns that she and Lucas are destined to play the leading roles in a Greek tragedy that the Three Fates insist on repeating over and over again throughout history. Like her namesake, Helen of Troy, she’s destined to start a war by falling in love. But even though Lucas and Helen can see their own star-crossed destiny, they’re still powerfully attracted to each other. Will they give up their personal happiness for the greater good, or risk it all to be together?

this book was... wow... soooooo amasing!!! im a HUGE percy jackson fan and i thought that the lack of info Josephine was giving the reader bout greek myths would make me annoyed and it did for a start but wow... their love is touchy, in a way that makes me curse all those normal boys out there hehe, but not only the love story was what catched my eye, but the characters, they were so amazingly described not to cry out loud. the reason im going to give this book a 4,5/5 is because the Delos family was far too much alike the Cullen family, and becuse something ese i can not tell you, because tha would be spoiling ;)

The Song of Achilles
The Song of Achilles Greece in the age of Heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to Phthia to live in the shadow of King Peleus and his strong, beautiful son, Achilles. By all rights their paths should never cross, but Achilles takes the shamed prince as his friend, and as they grow into young men skilled in the arts of war and medicine, their bond blossoms into something far deeper — despite the displeasure of Achilles’s mother Thetis, a cruel sea goddess. But then word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus journeys with Achilles to Troy, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear.

    Thirteen reasons why review

    by: Jay Asher
    Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers thirteen cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush who committed suicide two weeks earlier.
    On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list.
    Through Hannah and Clay's dual narratives, debut author Jay Asher weaves an intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation that will deeply affect teen readers.

    this book was very beautiful, and i loved how Asher got every detail to FIT so perfectly.. the story really showed how cyber-bully can affect someone. althougt i really liked this book, this book could be a bit too sad sometimes.

    The Host (The Host #1)

    by: Stephenie Meyer
    Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.

    When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

    Wanderer probes Melanie's thoughts, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the remaining human resistance. Instead, Melanie fills Wanderer's mind with visions of the man Melanie loves - Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she has been tasked with exposing. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.

    this book was really good! i give this book only 3 stars because 1. i want a follow up book and 2 it was a bit slow in the beginning, but other than that, great! but sadly, i do not think another book will come out in this so called series.

    Divergent (divergent #1)

    by Veronica Roth

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

    Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series--dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

    im literary DYING to read this book, i really really wan't to read it. when i checked out goodreads to see what other people had to say about the book i just came across good reviews. this book has been on the YA bestseller list worldwide for a while now, and the reason I haven't been able to read this book yet is because when i first bought it in E book format, the words were all over the place in a incoherent way, so now im waiting for a better script format :)

    The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants #1) review

    by: Ann Brashares

    Carmen got the jeans at a thrift shop. They didn’t look all that great: they were worn, dirty, and speckled with bleach. On the night before she and her friends part for the summer, Carmen decides to toss them. But Tibby says they’re great. She'd love to have them. Lena and Bridget also think they’re fabulous. Lena decides that they should all try them on. Whoever they fit best will get them. Nobody knows why, but the pants fit everyone perfectly. Even Carmen (who never thinks she looks good in anything) thinks she looks good in the pants. Over a few bags of cheese puffs, they decide to form a sisterhood and take the vow of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants . . . the next morning, they say good-bye. And then the journey of the pants — and the most memorable summer of their lives — begins.

    this book is so sweet and all warm. It show's you what true friendship really is, and how to get trough betrayals. I just loved the writing, which was very easy, and very free. i read this book many many MANY years ago, like 6 years ago? and then i re-read it when i was like thirteen, 3 years ago. 
    so yeah, i really enjoyed this book, and there is a movie too I've hear'd based on this book.

    A Wanted Man (Jack Reacher, #17)


    beloved friend

    so as you guys might know i've been having troubles finding GOOD books. all the previous books that i have read was very very booring... so one of my closest friends, Linnea, had a therapy session with me. she is trying to help me get out of this book depression. I't has helped a bit actually, we just sit and chat about good books we have been reading lately, she gives me recommendation (althought the books she recommend seems to really suck, no offense hun, i know you're reading my blog, love u anyway) and we sit and talk about our favorite books that are becoming movies, and why the actors suck and so on. she has been a real cliff. maybe we could have her guest blog sometimes, since we actually do have slightly different taste in books, so that my lovely readers will get her recommendations too!

    Haha He doesn't even go here!
    For sure
    What on earth?!
    need to try!
    have a nice Saturday!

    The Fault in Our Stars

    by John Green

    Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 13, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now. 

    Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault. 

    Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.

    this book was voted as the best book 2012 right now, ofc, this could change until december 31th ;)
    i haven't read this book actually, maybe i should? have you guys? this book had the points 4,57/5 and  76,148 had rated the book so i would say that 4,57 is a pretty good number!

    fifty shades of grey by E L James

    good moorning beautiful, slept well? i have, woke up, with a little pain in my tummy, so i went to the kitchen and made myself a bowl of yoghurt, with lots of lots of fruits! (and sugar. im a sucker when it comes to sugar...) and now im lying here in my bed and blogging.
    i love my blog..
    anyway, im going to talk about the book "fifty shades of grey" before i give you my opinion, im going to poest the review o the book

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.
    Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

    Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

    This book is intended for mature audiences.

    i saw the cover, and had heard a lot of positive things about the book, and the book had been up on the best seller list's for a pretty good while so i thought to myself (wtf haha) let's check up the book!
    biggest mistake of my 16 year long life. if your in to like.. those very erotic things read it but my face looked like this until i put it down:
     pretty, i know. im one of these girls who finish the book no matter what, and i gave this book 300 pages, because i thought it would ease down a bit, but no. not only was the book disgusting in my opinion, it bought out the feminist side of me! the girl in the book was all "oh sir, yes sir, im your butler" blah blah..

    xoxo Lihini


    hands down, im giving up

    i've read so many mad books lately i just want to puke.. i really enjoy reading, but not bad books! i just want a good ol' fantasy book, like The Mortal Instrument, or Percy Jackson...

    Existence (Existence Trilogy #1) review

    by Abbi Glines

    What happens when you're stalked by Death? You fall in love with him, of course.

    Pagan Moore doesn't cheat Death, but instead, falls in love with him.

    Seventeen year old Pagan Moore has seen souls her entire life. Once she realized the strangers she often saw walking through walls were not visible to anyone else, she started ignoring them. If she didn't let them know she could see them, then they left her alone. Until she stepped out of her car the first day of school and saw an incredibly sexy guy lounging on a picnic table, watching her with an amused smirk on his face. Problem is, she knows he's dead.

    Not only does he not go away when she ignores him, but he does something none of the others have ever done. He speaks. Pagan is fascinated by the soul. What she doesn't realize is that her appointed time to die is drawing near and the wickedly beautiful soul she is falling in love with is not a soul at all.
    He is Death and he's about to break all the rules.

    this book can suck it. 
    okey, this book was okey the first 40 pages, but then?! OOH NO, i can read about vampires, werewolves, faeries, etc etc. but i CAN NOT read about mental hospitals before i go to bed, and this girl, wow, she was the mental kid herself, i mean, she have met this dude like 4 times, at MOST, and she turns all Bella Swan, i mean COME on, it's not even believable, the things she did. and "Death" was not all too different from Edward either, all "i can not resist you" blah blah blah... but this book was not like twilight. no, this book was just pure mental

    City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) review

    When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder -- much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing -- not even a smear of blood -- to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

    This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. . . . 

    Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end

    can i just say this book KILLED!? it was sooo funny, intense, heart-jumping-feet jumping-body jumping - carrot jumping good? it really was, the book was SO well written, even the fight scenes were beautifully written and illustrated. 
    read it or die.
    naah just kidding.
    but seriously, read it.

    Jessie J - Who You Are

    so.. beautiful

    we got issues baby true

    that's what i tell myself.
    life is a bliss
    life is happiness
    life is joy
    life is sorrow
    life is madness
    life is tragic

    everyday is another day, another day of surprises. some of us wakes up to find out what kind of surprises are waiting ahead of us, and some of them have their whole day, week, life planned out to minimize those surprise moments.
    i wake up everyday hoping this day will be better than the previous day.
    with too many scars on my arm of life, i still keep up the happy facade. sometimes i just want to put it all down, stop pretending.
    but i can not do that and i never will. no matter how many times i get down, i always have to fight my way up again. because i know life is just testing me, to see if im ready for the real happiness.
    and that's what i wan't to tell you, my reader.
    never give up

    Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits #1) review

    by Katie McGarry
    No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.

    Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again

    this book was OK, i liked some parts better than other, easy read, but i don't know, i think everything just went a bit too fast forward

    Nightshade review

    author: Andrea Cremer
    published: October 19th 2010

    Calla is a 17 year old werewolf. And she is also the alpha of her pack. She has always known her destiny; finish high school, marry the man the keepers, her bosses, has picked for her and lead her pack. And Calla is more than willing to follow these rules, since that's what every werewolf for many generations has been doing without complaining. And if she for some reason would obey, death is what will be waiting for her. But one day, when the human boy Shay Daren moves into town, everything in Calla's world turns upside-down. Will she be able to follow her heart but at the same time, keep everyone she loves, and her pack, alive?
    I was hooked from the very first page. This is the first time I’ve read a book were werewolves are the main characters. It was an interesting twist.
    The characters seemed well organized, and I never felt that they blurred away, and started to act differently without any reason. Every character was special in their own way, which made it a lot easier to know who was who. Calla herself was a very strong character and you could almost always predict what she would say, or how she would react upon something. She seemed to be a really strong girl, being an alpha and all, but she was still a teenage girl and Andrea Cremer mixed it together beautifully. 
    I give this book 3½ out of 5.

    Although I really liked this book there were moment where Cremer had me go ‘wait, what?’ and it never really disappeared until she explained it like 100 pages later. Of course, there has to be some mystery in a book, but I don’t think it should be that much mystery and especially not to that point where you leave the reader all confused. But as I said before, you found out the answer later on. And I had some difficulties with Calla too. She was a strong character and all, but I think that Cremer might have exaggerated it a bit. Just a bit. But apart from that, the book was amazing!

    Onyx (lux novel #2) review

    READ MY REVIEW OF THE FIRST BOOK HERE http://teenbookalover.blogspot.se/2012/09/obsidian-lux-1-review.html

    Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

    Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.
    Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

    The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard.

    But then everything changes…
    I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

    No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

    WOW. just wow.. this book was soooo goood, i have not written this review myself because i knew i could not handle that without spoiling it.  this book had it all, the love, betrayal, action, friendship, eerything. just. beautiful. definitely a 5 star!

    The UNbecoming of Mara Dyer review

    Author: Michelle Hodkin
    Mara dyer wakes up in a hospital with no memories at all. but she soon finds out that three of her friends are dead and that she were the only one making it out alive - and with no bruises.
    The death of her three friends is unbearable for her so her family decides to move.
    After all that has happen she does not thinks that she will be able to feel any feelings for a while again. But she is wrong. She falls in love.

    I loved the cover, there was something very catchy about it too, and it made me wonder what story could be hidden between the pages.
    The book was quit tedious in the begging, nothing really happen, but after so 100 pages things started to flame up. But at the end, things got confused, I felt that I didn't understand everything that what was going on, and lack of explanation leaved me hanging.
    But of course there were times I just literary had to wait a moment t steady my breathing before I could continue reading. The book was humorous, and very, very romantic. I think the romance made the real problems blur in the background, and that actually bothered me a bit.

    I give this a book 3 stars out of five, because I really liked the characters in this book, and the book was really funny as well

    Obsidian (Lux #1) review

    Starting over sucks.

    When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

    And then he opened his mouth.

    Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens. 

    The hot alien living next door marks me.

    You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. 

    If I don't kill him first, that is

    i was in love. this is one of these books with a lot of dialogs which make this book a page turner. you don't even realize it and then poof, your finished.
    this is actually the first book ever that i read that is about aliens :)

    half-blood review

    The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck

    there is like NO WAY here on earth im finishing this book. this is, in my opinion, a DIRECT COPY of the first vampire academy book, just different names and they are just not vampires. they are something else i quit don't remember right now. but strigoi, dhampir, moroi, hot trainer, cocky student check. only different names. They even have a group of people, or whatever they call them, like the moroi, who work with the element water, fire,wind,or earth. i read like 60 pages before i putted it down. sorry, but i don't read direct copies. i read like a spoiler plot on the web where they listed all the similarities. let's just say they were a lot.

    nice cover though

    that moment...

    that moment of pure happiness. that moment no one can ruin. i had that moment yesterday.
    yesterday was one of my best days here on earth.  i have never been so happy.
    why you might question yourself. what could have made me so happy? well i will tell you. 
    Simone Elkeles commented on my blog. yes. THE Simone Elkeles, the one i wrote about yesterday commented on my, MY blog, AND wrote to on facebook. tears of joy poured down my face, and i screamed so loud and jumped up and down, ran down to tell my mum and everybody around me. to know that someone like her actually saw me, and cared to comment is big. i've never question the thought of Simone being real. i know she is, but this.. i can now die happy ;)

    bam bam bam BAM numer ONE

    my number one is someone who taught me that real love is still out there waiting for  me. my number one taught me Its okey to be different. my number one taught me to always be real to yourself. my number one taught me that im stronger than i let myself believe. my number one is my hero. my number one is Simone Elkeles. her books makes my heart jump out from my chest, her books makes me ugly-cry, and her books makes me jump up and down with happiness. once i get my hands on a book written by her i can not put it down until I've finish reading it and THAT is how it should be. she owned my heart after the first book i ever read written by her, perfect chemistry. it was pure love i felt for that book my readers. pure love. and leaving paradise? i cried like a baby. i hate her for making me cry like that because i look really fugly when i cry haha. one day i hope to meet her. either when she comes to Sweden (which i desperately hope she does) or when i visit USA which i will do someday. you know, before i die. 

    thank you Simone, for writing such good books.
    find out more about her books here

    the future

    a time, a place, where no one have been, and no one will see, because when the future is here, its no longer the future. it's the present. but we all still dream about something we will never fully understand. 

    i have been thinking about my education. i will finish high school, and probably go to college, but im pretty sure im going to do something completely different than what im educated to do. isn't that a bit funny, that im going to waste maybe 7 years of my life studying for something i know i will probably never do? no? well i think it is. 
    i love fashion. now i know what u might think, but fashion for me is not just clothes, or size 0, or caked make up. no. fashion for me is bringing out your soul for everybody else to see. a lot of people wear what they are comfortable wearing around others. it could be just underwear's and it could me clothes that covers all our body parts. just by that you show the world who you are. and going half naked isn't wrong, and so is not going all covered up. it's the way you wear it. your body might wear the clothes, but it is your personality that is keeping them up. and make up and hair... those things are magic for me. if i get my hand on blond long hair, u bet i will do something very beautiful with it. and same with make up. its all about expressing yourself. 
    but what i like the most with fashion is that they aloud you to be someone else. 
    maybe someone braver than what you really are. 
    and that my readers, is magic.
