Yaqui Delgado Wants To Kick Your Ass Review
Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass - Meg Medina

Yaqui Delgado wants to kick your ass is about Piddy Sanchez, a young girl who recently changed schools. When she is going to school one day a girl comes up to her to tell her Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. She has no clue who Yaqui Delgado is, or what she did to be hated so much.


        This book is now one of my favorites. I liked the plot, the characters, the pace, the title is freaking awesome and the writing style is fantastic. I loved Piddy, and could really connect with her character. I loved Lila and her relationship with Piddy, Lila to be honest was my favorite character in this whole book. Lila is Piddys moms best friend who Piddy has known her whole life. Piddys mom is very strict and set in her ways as a result of something that occurred in her past. All her mom does is work and go home, she never has any fun. That contrasts greatly with the lifestyle Lila has, as she is more about having fun.


          Yaqui herself doesn't appear in the story as much as I thought she would, but when she does appear its with a bang. She is a very tough character, and I kind of wish she had appeared more in the story. I liked how Meg Medina dealt with the situation, and how she wrote it. Yaqui Delgado wants to kick your ass had everything I could want in a book, and I would recommend it to everyone. I plan on reading more from her in the future.  If you haven't already read Yaqui Delgado wants to kick your ass you totally should.

Whole in The Clouds Review
Whole in the Clouds - Kristine Kibbee
  I received an e-book copy of Whole In The Clouds from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Whole in the clouds is about Cora Catlin. She is a young girl who is just about to start middle school, and she's not happy about that at all. One day when she is in the woods she falls asleep when she is awaken by Barnworth Celius, someone who tells her she isn't from Earth and that she is actually from Clouden, a world that exists above The Backworlds, or Earth.

Overall, the book gets 3 stars. I didn't feel like I could connect with most of the characters. There didn't seem to be much depth to them. Cora I feel didn't handle things in a very realistic way. She discovers that there is a whole world she never knew existed, that that's where she is actually from and she just takes it in stride. I feel like there should have been some apprehension on Cora's part. I also don't think that someone so young(she is just starting middle school) would leave the people they thought of as parents so easily. My favorite character was Celius, and I was kind of disappointed that there wasn't more of him in the story.

I also felt like there wasn't much conflict. The small conflict that occurred right as the book was ending didn't really seem like the big battle that I felt should have happened after the tension of the Finnegans, and Treinbaulms hating each other for so long. I also was kind of disappointed that there was a relationship that was destined to be between Cora and Patrick. I think that the story would have been a lot better if there was a lack of this relationship. The relationship didn't feel genuine, I mean they only heard each others voices, and they were already feeling a connection. Everything kind of felt rushed overall.

Now lets go on to the good. Clouden sounds like such a cool and beautiful place, and it was described so vividly I could basically see it, which to be honest made me kind of want to go there. I liked how so much background detail was given as to why the Finnegans and Treinbaulms hated each other, why everything Backworlders knew to be fairytale was real in Clouden. It really makes the reader feel like they are in the story. Also my favorite part was the talking animals, I mean who doesn't love talking animals. I think Whole In The Clouds would be fantastic for a young reader because Clouden is basically something out of a child's dream.

Allegiant Review
Allegiant - Veronica Roth

     I recently read Allegiant, and I honestly really liked it... for the most part. I for sure liked it a lot more than I liked Insurgent, but not as much as I liked Divergent. I really like the characters, but I don't think there is much character progression. In my opinion the characters just don't seem to have changed at all from the first book.


            The plot was good I liked how the story progressed. It was really fast paced and I didn't want to put it down. I finished the book within a couple of days. For me, there wasn't really a dull moment in the book.


               Now... about the ending,(SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER) I can't believe that Tris died. I did not like that, just ask the people who had to hear me repeat for five days "I can't believe she's dead. The book overall was enjoyable, but I just didn't like that, that was how they decided to end the trilogy.

Returned Review
The Returned - Jason Mott

         A while ago I received an arc of this from goodreads first reads, but didn't really review it. So I thought I would reread it, and review it. The book follows a small town called Arcadia, specifically an older couple(Harold and Lucille Hargrave), as they try to deal with the dead coming back to life all around the world.


                 I couldn't really connect with the characters. I didn't have any type of emotion for these characters. They seemed to have no depth to them. I didn't like how in between chapters they would just go to a different person who was brought back to life, even though they had nothing to do with the plot.


          When it came to the parts that were mainly focused on Lucille, I didn't really focus, because for me she was an uninteresting, and unlikable person. I focused more when it came to Harold, and Jacob. More so Harold than Jacob because Jacob didn't seem to really be important to the story. I felt as if he was just an excuse for the story to be focused on the Hargraves. Harold, was a likeable character because he felt real, in his actions and emotions.


           I kind of wish the book, would have explained, why things were happening, but it didn't. The ending kind of left me conflicted, part of me was satisfied, but part of me felt that the end just wasn't very satisfying.

Undercurrent Review
Undercurrent - Paul Blackwell

Undercurrent is about Callum Harris, a teenager who after falling over Crystal Falls, wakes up in a hospital in a world completely different to his own. The beginning of the book was kind of slow, as it was spent completely in the hospital as Callum is recovering. But as the story progresses it becomes more fast paced.


              Callum learns that in this world he is a star athlete, who is a complete troublemaker, similar to how his brother is in his original universe. In this universe we learn that his brother Cole was paralyzed in a waterpark accident. The sheriff here is suspicious of Callum as another teenager in town disappeared at the same time he went over the Falls, and was last seen with him.

          As the book gets more to the end he comes to realize that this is an alternative universe, with the help of the alternative version of his best friend Willow.


       The ending while not awful wasn't the best I think it could have been. Undercurrent overall was a really enjoyable book, and I really want to read more from Paul Blackwell.


I won an arc copy a while ago from goodreads first reads. I decided to reread then re review it since the last review I did was awful.

City of bones review
City of Bones - Cassandra Clare

City of Bones is about Clary Fray, a teenage girl who discovers a secret her mother has tried to keep from her after witnessing a shocking event in a nightclub.

         This book is what made me get back into reading after a few years of losing that desire to. I finished reading it in one night because no matter how late it got, I kept saying "One more chapter." City of Bones had everything that I could want, humor, action, shocking twists, and great characters. I would recommend this book for everyone.

Ebon City: Death and the Maiden - Leo Featherstone
I recieved my copy through goodreads first reads. I enjoyed this book, but I didn't like how it would change the point of view so many times. I also did not enjoy Angela's character. Besides those things I enjoyed this story very much.
