[Review] Saving June by Hannah Harrington

Saving June
by: Hannah Harrington

Publication Date: November 22nd 2011
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Format: Paperback, 336 pages 
Summary:


‘If she’d waited less than two weeks, she’d be June who died in June. But I guess my sister didn’t consider that.’

Harper Scott’s older sister has always been the perfect one so when June takes her own life a week before her high school graduation, sixteen-year-old Harper is devastated. Everyone’s sorry, but no one can explain why.

When her divorcing parents decide to split her sister’s ashes into his-and-her urns, Harper takes matters into her own hands. She’ll steal the ashes and drive cross-country with her best friend, Laney, to the one place June always dreamed of going California.

Enter Jake Tolan. He’s a boy with a bad attitude, a classic-rock obsession and nothing in common with Harper’s sister. But Jake had a connection with June, and when he insists on joining them, Harper’s just desperate enough to let him. With his alternately charming and infuriating demeanour and his belief that music can see you through anything, he might be exactly what she needs.

Except June wasn’t the only one hiding something. Jake’s keeping a secret that has the power to turn Harper’s life upside down again.

REVIEW

I liked Saving June enough to actually want to finish it. I mean there was a long moment (weeks) when I stopped reading because I thought it was boring but then when I decided to actually re-read it for the sake of second chances; I found out that it wasn’t so bad.
Another young author who is not very far from my age has published something nice. It seemed to me that there are many of them in the business already. And as much as I’d like to be able to praise each of them, somehow, there are things that need to be improved.
I could appreciate the part that this was a story of a younger sister who is kind of suffering from the ever frustrating favoritism of her parents. That I could somehow relate on to. My parents aren’t so bad, but I mean it would be impossible if there aren’t times when you just feel like your sibling is more loved than you are. For that to be true or not for you, I’m not so sure.
This is a story of Harper, 16, who decided to take June’s (her older sister) urn to California in the hope of somehow fulfilling June’s dream. It has been June’s wish to go to California but she has died before she was able to go. June took suicide and left her shattered family in pieces. Harper was angry at how June decided to end her life because it had changed her family and everything in her life. But somehow, she wanted to do something for her sister. Harper wanted to take June, if it wasn’t exactly her then the urns at least, to where June has always dreamed of being. On her journey to California, she had come across many people and she had taken some detours with her best friend, Laney, and her sister’s friend who decided to drive them to Cali, Jake Tolan. They also made acquaintances that had their journey a little less boring. Or it wasn’t exactly boring. There was this connection between Jake and Harper but Jake appeared to be in a mysterious relationship with June which has plagued Harper’s mind.
It wasn’t Hannah Harrington’s writing that actually made me stop reading at first. In fact, I like her style enough because it was easy on my tongue since I mean I most definitely speak like them. Harrington is a good writer if I may say. But it was probably the story that did not capture me exactly. I mean I kind of liked it, kind of. But there was something lacking. Maybe I wanted something more.
But it wasn’t entirely a mess. I wanted to know what would become of Jake and Harper. I actually finished the book for it. So Saving June was still okay. Kind of sad but okay.

Waiting on Wednesday #20


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Until I Die
by Amy Plum
Expected Publication: May 8th 2012 by HarperCollins Publishers



Kate and Vincent have overcome the odds and at last they are together in Paris, the city of lights and love.

As their romance deepens there’s one question they can’t ignore: How are they supposed to be together if Vincent can’t resist sacrificing himself to save others? Although Vincent promises that he’ll do whatever it takes to lead a normal life with Kate, will that mean letting innocent people die? When a new and surprising enemy reveals itself, Kate realizes that even more may be at stake—and that Vincent’s immortality is in jeopardy.

In Die for Me, Amy Plum created a captivating paranormal mythology with immortal revenants and a lush Paris setting. Until I Die is poised to thrill readers with more heart-pounding suspense, spellbinding romance, and a cliff-hanger ending that will leave them desperate for the third and final novel in the series.
Insurgent
by Veronica Roth
Expected Publication: May 1st 2012 by HarperCollins


One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.
Pandemonium
by Lauren Oliver
Expected Publication: February 28th 2012 by HarperTeen

I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school,
push,
push,
push,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.
Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

[Blog Tour/Guest Post] Amy Corwin on Love at First Sight


Guest Post: Love at First Sight by Amy Corwin

Love at first sight is one of those notions that cause writers no end of difficulties. You see, it obviously exists in real life, but everyone pooh-poohs it when the beleaguered writer tries to include it in her book in an ill-conceived attempt at verisimilitude. As everyone knows, when you write fiction, you must always be very careful to avoid verisimilitude whenever possible. It’s simply not believable.

It does exist, you know. Love at first sight. In fact, one of my friends and fellow author, Lilly Gayle, suffered (and still suffers) from it. She even went so far as to marry the instigator of her condition. And she’s not the only one I’ve met during my long, meandering life. I’ve met dozens of innocent souls who have been struck down in the prime of their lives by the very same affliction. In real life, that is. You can’t make this sort of thing up.

So, why does it happen? Doesn’t it take a long time (at least fifteen minutes, if not longer) to get to know someone well enough to fall in love? Perhaps intellectually. But there are these pesky little biological things that happen to us, quite hidden from conscious will and control. Pheromones and other nasty chemicals scrambling our brains and causing us to make the strangest decisions. We have almost no control over it. We look into someone’s eyes (or eye, as the case may be) and wham! It’s like a ballpeen hammer to the frontal lobes. Not the base of the brain, of course, but those bumpy nodules in the front that are involved in logical decisions.

In the end, we stumble, falter, and then collapse into a heap of senseless desire. Like Paris and Helen of Troy. Love completely annihilated Paris’ front lobes and he abducted Helen, spiriting her away to Troy in order to start the Trojan wars. Oh wait, perhaps that wasn’t quite his intention, but on purpose or not, it’s certainly happened. Or not, depending upon how much credence you place in ancient Greek myths. In any event, he appears to have had very little control over what happened.

And later, there was Beatrice and Dante. Dante Alighieri fell in love with the mysterious Beatrice in the 13th century, despite the fact they only met twice. Dante claimed he loved her throughout his entire life and she was the muse for his poetry. I don’t want to cast aspersions, but considering the fact that his most notable poem was The Inferno, which consisted largely in descriptions of Hell, I’m unsure about his definition of love. But then, perhaps they didn’t know any better in those days, since they had to wait another four centuries for enlightenment.

In my own books, my characters have been very circumspect about flinging themselves headlong in love. Pru Barnard in The Vital Principle may have felt a spark of something when she gazed into Knighton Gaunt’s eyes for the first time, but I suspect it was more annoyance than love. Unfortunately, Knighton wasn’t nearly as logical and controlled as he thought when he prevented the constable from immediately charging Pru with murder and incarcerating her. A touch of pheromones there, I think, but it came out all right in the end.

And Charlotte Haywood in I Bid One American may certainly have disdained titles, being an American who simply didn’t believe in them, but she wasn’t immune to Nathaniel when they first meet on the moonlit terrace at a ball. There is undoubtedly a spark, a whiff of that intangible but irresistible force that destroys the logic centers of the brain. Both Charlotte and Nathaniel are affected. They may have believed they were acting sensibly, but someone with all her brain cells intact might have disagreed.

So, do I believe in love at first sight?

Yes. But you’ll never catch me writing about such a far-fetched notion.
The Vital Principle


In 1815, an inquiry agent, Mr. Knighton Gaunt, is asked by Lord Crowley to attend a séance with the express purpose of revealing the spiritualist as a fraud. When the séance ends abruptly, Lord Crowley is poisoned during the turmoil by an unseen killer.

Gaunt is now left to investigate not only fraud, but murder. Suspicion turns first to the spiritualist, Miss Prudence Barnard, but as Gaunt digs deeper into the twisted history of the guests at Rosecrest, he discovers more deadly secrets. Inevitably, long-time friends turn against one another as the tension mounts, and Gaunt is challenged time and time again to separate fact from fiction before another death at Rosecrest.

The Vital Principle is the first mystery in the Second Sons Inquiry Agency series and features coolly intellectual Mr. Knighton Gaunt, the agency’s founder. This witty, historical whodunit in the tradition of Bruce Alexander’s Blind Justice, will keep you guessing until the unexpected end.

“Murder, mystery, and a dash of romance combined with witty dialogue and unforgettable characters make The Vital Principle a book that will definitely go on my keeper shelf!” Lilly Gayle, author of Into the Darkness and Slightly Tarnished.
 A Rose Before Dying


A murderer is stalking the streets of London and the evidence points to Sir Edward, the uncle of Charles Vance, Earl of Castlemoor. The first victim is none other than Sir Edward’s mistress who threw him over for a younger man, giving him a clear motive to kill her. However, Charles is convinced Sir Edward is innocent and enlists the aide of Mr. Knighton Gaunt of the Second Sons Inquiry Agency. When more clues surface, including roses hinting at another victim, Charles steps in and takes control. He can’t let his uncle hang for murders he didn’t commit, despite his uncle’s foul temper and abundant motivation.
Charles teams up with noted rosarian Ariadne Wellfleet to decipher the clues and prove Sir Edward’s innocence and stop the murderer before he can strike again.
The Necklace


Legends foretell death for anyone who possesses the fabled Peckham emerald necklace, lost by an Archer ancestor. Certainly, it has brought the Archers nothing but heartache. So Oriana is relieved it’s missing, assuming it ever existed. She has enough difficulties protecting her uncle—and her heart--from his dangerous new friend, Chilton Dacy. However, when Oriana finds the necklace, the curse reawakens. The necklace disappears, only to reappear clutched in a dead man’s hand.
The stranger’s death leaves Oriana with a frightening choice: ask Chilton for help, or face the possibility that she may hang for murder.

[Review] Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Prince 
by Cassandra Clare
Publication Date: December 6th 2011
Published by: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Source: Purchased
Summary:
In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa's powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister's war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will; the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

REVIEW

Is it me or is it the fact that this book is just so remarkable that I somehow can’t get it off my mind?

I have waited for over a year to get myself the second book of The Infernal Devices and I am most delightful to tell you that it was certainly worth the wait! Cassandra Clare had once again swept her readers’ minds into the mysterious world of shadow hunters in the fancy setting of London without a hint of failure. The author did a very good job in creating the storyline with events in which one could never guess that they could even possibly be formed. She’s clever that she was able to find that certain factor the readers would want to read and somehow concealed it in between the surprising twists. She perfectly balanced mystery and romance together, and her words were able to continue to build up the characters with more sense in their individualities, and tangled them creatively to form various shades of scenes sprinkled with humour.

Speaking of characters, ofcourse there is William Herondale, the beautiful and arrogant Will whom our lady protagonist, Tessa has been avoiding ever since their encounter on the attic (on the first book). In this series you’d be able to know the reason behind his over-cockiness as he tells it to Magnus--who is realizing Will’s real deal towards Tessa and is now developing likeness towards pretty blue-eyed guys. *wink, wink*

“This is about Tessa. I knew it was." 

Will flushed, a wash of color across the pallor of this face. "Not just her." 

"But you love her." 

Will stared at him.


Then there’s Tessa, who is still baffled with Will’s shifting actions but is beginning to have more-than-friends-feelings with Jem.


“Will has always been the brighter burning star, the one to catch attention — but Jem is a steady flame, unwavering and honest. He could make you happy.”

And Jem, who was oblivious with his parabatai’s desire toward Tessa is earning points for being an affectionate gentleman with her.(Even during institute meetings where everybody is discussing about the run-away villain, Mortmain--who is currently having an obvious puppet in the Clave, and the puppet also having a spy in the very walls of the London Insitute.)

“Say something in Mandarin,” said Tessa, with a smile.
 “Ni hen piaoliang.”
“What did you say?” Tessa was curious.
“I said your hair is coming undone — here,” he said, and reached out and tucked an escaping curl back behind her ear.

The preceding few pages of the book were like events from a good movie at its peak; exciting and surprising and definitely swoon-worthy! Especially at the very last part when….well, im not gonna tell you. I say you go to the nearest bookstore and grab a copy of this book now! ;)

[Blog Tour] Fallenwood by Leslie Soule


 Guest Post Character Building
by Leslie D. Soule

Hey there, everyone! Thanks for joining me here today.

So today I’m here to talk about this elusive thing known as “character building”. What is it exactly? How does one go about capturing the ESSENCE of a person’s character? Well when I first started writing, years ago, I used to think that character building was done the way you’d do it in a Dungeon’s & Dragons game, where you’ve got the character figured out as far as their eye color, height, weight, shoe size, mother’s maiden name, social security number, what they ate for breakfast last Tuesday, etc.

Writing stories has taught me that character building doesn’t have to be quite so detail-oriented. What it comes down to is character interaction, but there’s more to it than that – a writer’s got to capture a psychology, a guiding principle, a way of moving and speaking, etc. What I like to do is to think about people I already know, and to think about how I would describe them. Writing a character is much easier if I can visualize that person, or if I can put someone I know into their place. For example, let’s say I create Person X, we shall call her. I don’t have enough detail about Person X to know how they would respond to…seeing me sleeping in past a time I’m supposed to be awake. But I DO know how my twin sister would react – she would threaten to sit on me. I can apply this to Person X if I want, to give them more of a personality.

You don’t have to base a fictional character entirely on someone you know, or their actions entirely on actions you’ve seen one particular person do. You can take from as many sources as you want. In my novel Fallenwood, the character Terces calls Ash “kid” as a term of endearment because one of my co-workers had started calling me “kid” and I thought it was something I’d like to use.

I forget where I heard the line used, but I recall hearing that “Life exists in movement” so that when you think of a scene to paint or to describe in words, you are to act like things are moving and not static. In this way, it seems to me that fictional personalities (since they are created by what is on the page) are made up of so many actions over a course of time. If you have trouble thinking of who you want in your novel, perhaps begin with thinking about what you want in your novel – a sorcerer, a jester, a witch, a talking bunny, etc. and work from there once you’ve created a framework.

I apologize for the ambiguity of this post and thank you for bearing with me. If you’d like to enter the contest to win a gift card to Barnes & Noble, please leave a comment, along with your name and e-mail address.


Fallenwood—a land where magic is the life force, dragons are sages, and wizards good and evil battle for supremacy. When 23-year-old Ash is thrust into the middle of Fallenwood’s power struggles, she is also forced to face her own inner battles. Life on Earth was hard enough on Ash, who is locked in grief for her stepfather. Now, the fate of Fallenwood rests on her shoulders. She must destroy the Great Crystal—the catalyst for all the land’s magic. As the kingdoms prepare for war, Ash must look inside to find the power to save the world, and herself.

BOOK EXCERPT

The dragon’s eyes glowed, for a flickering moment, with white light.

“Ash,” the dragon continued, “Welcome to Terra Illumina…or as it is more commonly known, Fallenwood.” Then a fierce roaring laugh erupted from the stone, as though the dragon thought the new name a joke. “A dark, difficult, dangerous path lies before you, Ash Kensington.”  

Ash’s heart grew heavy. In truth, she knew that she was destined to some terrible, dark fate. For so long, her life was filled with sadness and doubt, and one horrible thing after another. What else can I hope for?

 “But Ash, you must not lose hope. Our world needs you..."

[Blog Tour] Between by Mary Ting


GUEST POST BY MARY TING

Crossroads was based on your dreams. Did you have a special dream for Between?

Yes, I did. It wasn’t a dream. It was a nightmare! I was sitting in the back seat of a car. Two female friends I didn’t recognize were sitting next to me. I was in the center. We were having a conversation and then all of sudden I started to feel extremely uncomfortable. The one on the right swung over, straddling over my lap, pinned my arms to the back seat. Startled by her sudden action, all I could do was watch her mouth open wide as it covered my face completely. I couldn’t breathe. No air!!! Suffocating. I thought I was dying. Somehow my hands became free. I slid them inside her mouth. It felt cold, slimy and wet…lol!!! I pulled her off me. When I awoke, I took in a deep breath, gasping. As I snuggled closer to my husband, a thought occur. The panic of this nightmare quickly subsided when I decided it would be great to write about it in Between…hehe!!! Now you’ll have to read and find out…lol!!!

Summary:
As the alkins head back to Crossroads, Claudia leads her normal life; but not for long. Having a special soul, Claudia attracts danger, and she soon finds out who Gamma asked to watch over her. The Twelve, known as Divine Elders on Earth, are very much involved when they find out that Aliah, one of the God’s first angels, escaped from the Abyss when the gates were opened by Aden. Needing Claudia’s soul to escape the only place Aliah can reside–a place between Heaven and Earth–he sends his demons in search of all Claudia Emersons on Earth. Taking her soul will enable him to be released from Between and cross over to Crossroads, which would give him immense power. As more secrets are revealed Claudia learns about the venators—nephilim, demon hunters. Now two opposing forces must work together in order to save Claudia and humanity from the most dangerous angel ever created. But along the way, trust becomes a big issue. Will love be enough to keep Claudia and Michael together? Who will make the ultimate sacrifice? Who will betray them all?

If you found yourself not getting enough of constantly thinking about Crossroads(my review), then hold on to your seats cause for sure, this book will get you high!

Two thumbs up for Mary Ting for a job well-done for having this book creatively written. The plot is good, and the story line itself would make you want read the book during the wee hours of the night wishing that the novel wouldn’t somehow end. The second book had presented more intensity in the gravity of situation-- the dilemma of keeping our girl protagonist Claudia away from the dark forces, especially now that there are two tribes of Angelsbickering and always following her heelsjust to assure her safety.

The settings the author had described have been persistently breath-taking that even just reading about it could make you think you’ve drifted in it too.

The identities of the characters we all loved from the first novel were even more defined, and the other additions to the bunch have also played a sense of importance in theirinvolvement to the fast-paced events. They are one of the reasons why you would fall in love with this book. The deepness of the connection of the characters to each other could make you feel lots of emotions—like loss, friendship, and love.

Of course the romantic scenes had also rocketed sky-high! The moments between Michael and Claudia are getting a lot sexier, plus a mysterious character that had puzzled our minds in the first novel is now extremely hot on his wings for Claudia. The mockeries between Michael and the other guy could surely make the readers laugh and even make their bets!

I must admit that the latter happenings had shattered my heart into pieces. The book has this effect of getting its readers hooked up with it and it’s just superb!

Between is a very enchanting read that would surely get your head stuck in the clouds!
