The Secret Keepers by Trenton Lee Stewart - Book Review

Synopsis: A magical watch.
A string of secrets.
A race against time.


When Reuben discovers an extraordinary antique watch, he soon learns it has a secret power and his life takes an intriguing turn. At first he is thrilled with his new treasure, but as one secret leads to another, Reuben finds himself torn between his innately honest nature and the lure to be a hero.

Now he is on a dangerous adventure--full of curious characters, treacherous traps, and hairsbreadth escapes--as he races to solve the mystery before it is too late. Even with fearless Penny, mighty Jack, and the wise Mrs. Genevieve on his side, can Reuben outwit and outmaneuver the sly villain called The Smoke and his devious defenders the Directions and save the city from a terrible fate?


4/5 stars! There were plenty of twists and turns and who knows what else, but the idea behind the watch and its secrets. Reuben was a wonderful main characters and so was Penny. I love the history behind Penny and Jack's family. Mrs. Gen…

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl - Book Review

Synopsis: Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything

Matched by Allie Condie ~ Book Review

Synopsis: In the Society, officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.

Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s hardly any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one…until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.


4/5 stars! This story was well written, there was great world-building! I loved the romance and the star-crossed lover trope! The ending, the ending... I find 100 of everything to be a little weird since all things become boring after a while (not including certain books)... I was at work when I read the part and my boss was staring at me as if I were insane (which is half true). I can not wait to pick-up the sequel…
