As some of you might know JLA is one of my favorite authors of all time. I have no doubt whatsoever that this YA mystery book will be any less than her other books.

Mud VeinMud Vein

When reclusive novelist Senna Richards wakes up on her thirty-third birthday, everything has changed. Caged behind an electrical fence, locked in a house in the middle of the snow, Senna is left to decode the clues to find out why she was taken.

I've read one book by Taryn Fisher before and I swear, that book left my mind jiggly for a whole week. All I could think about was the novel. Fisher have this capturing way of writing, it's beautiful.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)To All the Boys I've Loved Before
by Jenny Han
Publication date: 15th April

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister's ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

This seems like the perfect summer read! I'm going on a vacation tomorrow to Turkey and I'm definitely bringing this book with me in my ebook reader.

By Rachel Hawkins

Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.
Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him--and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.

Rachel Hawkins wrote The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. Most suspense and thrilling book in this world.

Love Letters to the DeadLove Letters to the Dead
By Ava Dellaira
Publication date: April 1th

It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more; though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her. Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was; lovely and amazing and deeply flawed; can she begin to discover her own path.

This is a realistic fiction. I think this book will make you cry, it seems like it. I love reading cry-books.

when to NOT bring a book with you

"TeenBookaLover must have gone mad, there is never a 'nono' time for a good ol book"

In a great fantasy I would most definitely agree with you. I've been in many situations where all I've wanted to do is hide behind a book but unfortunately you can't always do that *silent sob*

But NOT bringing a book with you helps you concentrate on what you're doing much better. You might find yourself wishing for your book but that will be just it - wishes. And sometimes that's a good thing..

Ever been to a super boring party or ever found yourself stuck with what could seem like the world's most boring people?
Yeah, We've all been there.

What I would like to do in that situation is hide behing a really tall person or a tree, whatever is closest - and read. Just escaping reality, and wouldn't want to escape reality when it's so boring for the moment?

I hate to be the person to tell you this, but sometimes you have to be with people you don't want to be with. It's good training for the future and you might need that person in a close future! 

Reading while eating, there is nothing better.

Until you put it down on something foodish and it just destroys your book. Or maybe someone else harm your book. If you think about it, most incidents happens in kitchen.
I don't know about you,  but I'd rather eat a living human baby before bestroying my baby book

YES reading under the table on a boring history class is SO TEMPTING. It harms no one. Except maybe your education but whatever.

... until your teacher takes your book. And keeps it until the end of the school day.

Divergent: Movie REVIEW

I saw the movie a while ago but haven't gotten the time to review it until now. Let's get on with it then!

What a great freaking intense movie. No for real, my feels exploded all over the movie theater.
They didn't change too much and they stayed pretty true to the book.
What really blew my mind was how well they captured the Chicago that Veronica Roth painted up in her books. Nothing  was overdone or too massive.
The same thing goes with the characters. I'd like to talk a bit more about Theo James who played Four.

Four is a pretty complex character to play. He have this harsh personality that you don't wan't nothing to do with. He have these high walls around him, and I think those who have read the book knows why.
But Four is more than that. He does have feelings (surprisingly enough).
He just doesn't show them in a obvious way.
I think Theo James really captured that about Four. All his small little facial expressions were so FOURish. I didn't think he would be able to full it off. But he did.

I'll give the movie 4 out of 5 Dauntless cakes.

Prodigy (Legend #2) SWEDISH / ENGLISH REVIEW

ProdigyAv Marie Lu
Förlag: Modernista
Sidor: 344

Det har gått en vecka sedan June och Day med nöd och näppe lyckades fly från Los Angeles och Republiken med livet i behåll. Day antas vara död efter att ha förlorat sin bror till en avrättningspatrull som trodde att det var honom de tog livet av. June är nu Republikens mest eftersökta förrädare.
Desperata efter hjälp vänder de sig till Patrioterna – en rebellgrupp som vigt sina liv åt att få Republiken på fall. Men går Patrioterna att lita på? Eller har de själva, utan att inse det, blivit brickor i det mest fruktansvärda av politiska spel?

Jag har gått runt i ett halvår och tänkt på denna bok, ettan var grym och tvåan höll definitivt måttet!
Legend lämnar oss mitt i ett kaotiskt ögonblick. Days bror John har blivit dödad och det råder tumult i Los Angeles. Man vet inte riktigt vart man har Day och June, är de tillsammans? Kommer de att hålla? Ingen som vet, ingen som vet...

Jag hade verkligen höga förväntningar av denna bok och Marie Lu överträffade dem verkligen. Hennes sätt att skildra karaktärerna på är väldigt fängslande, hon tar dig högst upp på en läskig berg-och-dalbana och låter dig vara där ett bra tag. Du känner spänningen och obehaget som sakta kryper sig in under ditt skinn, och precis när du börjat lugna dg och tro att du inte alls kommer behöva åka ner så släpper hon ned dig. Det är läskigt. Det är fantastiskt. Det gör boken så jäkla bra.

Prodigy (Legend, #2)By Marie Lu
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Pages: 371

Injured and on the run, it has been seven days since June and Day barely escaped Los Angeles and the Republic with their lives. Day is believed dead having lost his own brother to an execution squad who thought they were assassinating him. June is now the Republic's most wanted traitor. Desperate for help, they turn to the Patriots - a vigilante rebel group sworn to bring down the Republic. But can they trust them or have they unwittingly become pawns in the most terrifying of political games?

AS I have longed THIS BOOK!
I've been walking around for half a year and thought of this book. Book one was awesome and the second was definitely just as well!
Legend leaves us in the midst of a chaotic moment. Day's brother John is killed and there is a riot in Los Angeles. You do not really know where you have Day and June, are they together? Will they last? Nobody knows, nobody knows ...

I had indeed high expectations of this book and Marie Lu surpassed them indeed. Her way of depicting the characters on is very captivating, she takes you on the top of a scary roller-coaster ride and lets you be there a while. You feel the tension and discomfort that slowly creeps under your skin, and just when you begin to calm yourself and think that you will not have to go down she lets you down. It's scary yet fantastic.
