Trailer tuesday

Since It is tuesday, I figured why not do a trailer tuesday on book inspired movies....

I am so pumped to watch Divergent come to life. It had so many action scenes in the book, I am curious as how are they going to make it come to life.

The girl playing Tris wasn't exactly who I pictured to play her character, but the actress isn't bad. I can see how she was chosen to play Tris. The guy playing Tobias is really goodlooking. I can't wait to watch him play his role as  Tobias XD.

I am also pleased to say that catching fire is coming out soon to theaters.
Since Divergent and Catching fire are both dystopian, I am sure that there will be a fierce battle between the two. This fact makes me even more excited because it just means that both movies will work hard into making their films much better because of competition.
Catching fire is my favorite book in the whole Hunger games series. It had the most action and It kept me at the edge of my seat. I am looking forward as to how the movie will turn out.
I have VERY HIGH expectations.
I can't wait to watch it >.<

A million suns book review

Book Summary: (Taken from Good reads)
Godspeed was once fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos. 

It’s been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. Everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceshipGodspeed.

But there may be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to act on his vision—no more Phydus, no more lies.

But when Elder learns shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a mystery that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier. Their success—or failure—will determine the fate of the 2,298 passengers aboard Godspeed. But with each step, the journey becomes more perilous, the ship more chaotic, and the love between them more impossible to fight.

Beth Revis catapulted readers into the far reaches of space with her New York Times bestselling debut, Across the Universe. In A Million Suns, Beth deepens the mystery with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.


  I remember as I finished reading the last page of Across the Universe and thinking to myself "wow I love this book..that was amazing..I definitely don't regret trying something new." Truth be told, sci-fi types of novels doesn't really peak my interest that much but, I gave this series a shot because it seemed so interesting and I was extremely curious because of the hype it was getting. I am glad I gave this series a shot.  To be perfectly honest, while I was  in love with the first book, I thought that there is no way that the second book would be able to compare to the first book and that the first book was enough as a stand alone. There was no need for a sequal and there's nothing else to explore in the story. Oh boy, was I frexing wrong,

This book was full of mystery, secrets, and plot  twist that I never anticipated would exist. It was very unpredictable and I love it. There would be nights where I would stay up just to figure out what was going to happen. I really didn't want to stop reading it, but sometimes I just had to, and there would be moments where I would catch myself looking forward to reading the book.

Character wise, I felt a deep connection between Elder and Amy. I felt not only  the struggles they had to face as they race trying to figure out the answers to the many questions Godspeed keeps, but also the struggle between themselves, and their relationship. I was able to sympathize with their situations and rejoice as they solve pieces of the puzzle. Their character was definitely written well. It was very realistic. I also saw some things in myself within them and It made me love the book even better.

Beth Revis' writing was incredible. She kept me on the edge of my seat wanting some more. The book starts off with a bang and then as every chapter continues switching from Amy to Elder, it kept on getting better and better making you thirst for the answers, making you want to delve deeper in her ocean of intense sea of wonder. She controlled my emotions making me feel like I was a part of the story. I felt like I was in the ship, a part of Godspeed's society. I cared for every character in the ship. The way she wrote it made me feel a connection to the book. She made me feel like I was in a whole new world and I loved it.
I am definitely looking forward on delving myself once more in the next book to come after this and more books to come by Beth Revis.

thirteen reasons why book review


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.


The first time I saw the thirteen reasons why, I was intrigued by it’s cover. I don’t know something just called after me, but when I read the summary I thought maybe this isn’t for me. I usually read paranormal fantasy and I usually don’t like staying out of that bubble, but this year I decided to give everything a try. I tried genres that I have never tried before and I was glad I did. I found out so much more interesting books out there and on of those books was the 13 reasons why.

Want to know something interesting? I read this book within 4 hours. Some of you might say I have no life or some might say that’s amazing. Well all I’ve got to say is that I don’t care if you say I have no life, it’s definitely been one of the most well used four hours of my life and it’s not the fact that I read it in four hours that’s amazing. It’s the book itself. This book was one of those books I’ll remember for the rest of my life because I swear; this book changed my perception in life and the people around me. It also made me think about my life right now. It was that much of a great book

One of the great things I came across while reading this book is the contrast between Hannah Baker’s humoristic tone while she tells her story via tape to Clay Jensen’s more serious way of telling the story. It made things more interesting and less depressing.
I also like the way Jay Asher kept on adding that suspense in the story, the way everything fits together like one big puzzle, and the audio tapes in general. I never would have thought of that and it was genius.

Thirteen reasons why is a definite must-read for all ages and I have no doubt it will change the way you think forever.

rating: 4/5

for all Unearthly fans out there here's the next book for the Unearthly Series, Hollowed

SO stunning XD my eyes is seriously sparkling with delight :D
here's the summary:

For months part-angel Clara Gardner trained to face the raging forest fire from her visions and rescue the alluring and mysterious Christian Prescott from the blaze. But nothing could prepare her for the fateful decisions she would be forced to make that day, or the startling revelation that her purpose—the task she was put on earth to accomplish—is not as straightforward as she thought. Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend, Tucker, Clara struggles to make sense of what she was supposed to do the day of the fire. And, as she is drawn further into the world of part angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, Clara learns of the terrifying new reality that she must face: Someone close to her will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.

coming out on: January 24th 2012
can't wait XD

Hex Hall

Sorry if my review is a little late, my computer crashed and I had to get it fixed.

Summary: Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.

As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.

When I first laid my eyes on Hex Hall, I didn't want anything to do with it. Partly because so far all the books I read that involved boarding schools led me down and they often disappointed my expectations. After completing Hex hall I would say that it was a completely different story compared to the other boarding school books I read. It was unique,refreshing, and I would say entertaining.

Sophie starts off trying to help someone with their problem and completely messing it all up causing her to go to Hex Hall. A school for troubled witches,faeries, and shapeshifters. There she meets enemies,friends, a hot guy, and basically lots of trouble. Sophie was definitely a charming and spunky character. I loved the way she handlesd the situations given to her even though sometimes it causes her big trouble. She is definitely the type of character who doesn't need prince charming to rescue her because she's no doubt a kick butt character.

Rachel Hawkins' was unique and very compelling. She hooked me from the first page and left me wanting for more. The way she wrote her characters made them shine and there was no dull moment. This fast pace book will certainly grab you and captivate you the way it did to me. If you like a delightful, laugh-out-loud,invigorating book with a hint of paranormal creatures. This is no doubt the book for you
