The Trouble With Destiny by Lauren Morrill

The Trouble With Destiny by Lauren Morrill
Release Date:  December 8, 2015
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Age Group: Young Adult
Pages: 272
Summary: It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey...

With her trusty baton and six insanely organized clipboards, drum major Liza Sanders is about to take Destiny by storm—the boat, that is. When Liza discovered that her beloved band was losing funding, she found Destiny, a luxury cruise ship complete with pools, midnight chocolate buffets, and a $25,000 spring break talent show prize.

Liza can’t imagine senior year without the band, and nothing will distract her from achieving victory. She’s therefore not interested when her old camp crush, Lenny, shows up on board, looking shockingly hipster-hot. And she’s especially not interested in Russ, the probably-as-dumb-as-he-is-cute prankster jock whose ex, Demi, happens be Liza’s ex–best friend and leader of the Athenas, a show choir that’s the band’s greatest competition.

But it’s not going to be smooth sailing. After the Destiny breaks down, all of Liza’s best-laid plans start to go awry. Liza likes to think of herself as an expert at almost everything, but when it comes to love, she’s about to find herself lost at sea.

My Thoughts:  What a cute fun read! As I started The Trouble With Destiny, I thought it felt kind of young compared to Morrill’s previous books. But honestly, once I got absorbed into it, it really didn’t anymore. It was just a fun light read, with some deeper meanings thrown throughout the novel!

We are introduced to Liza who is in charge of the band. They are all on a cruise ship entered in a contest. A contest they must win. Except she’s the only one who knows they must win. She doesn’t want the stress added onto all the band member’s shoulders. She was brave, fierce, and a great leader.

Liza also meets a boy named Lenny. Actually she already knows him but she gets to know him again. She has a huge crush on him and hopes the feeling is mutual. I could tell from the get go, there was more to Lenny than meets the eye, and I always liked the other guy. A football player named Russ.  I don’t know. I just liked him. He seems kind of dense at first but once we got to know him, we realize there is sooooo much more to him. He’s a good sweet guy.

I loved watching all Liza’s schemes. Her way of doing things. Her way of handling Lenny and Russ. Her way of handling her friends and the competition.  This one was full of a lot of drama. But I loved every minute of it!
I don’t want to say too much but it was a quick fun little read. Perfect read for the beach. But don't be surprised if you find yourself starting to fall for one of the guys!

Overall:  I just love Lauren Morrill’s books. I always know when she has a new one out, I must read it! These are such perfect cute little books! They are fun yet always have important lessons in the end. I just loved Russ!!!!!

Cover: I love it! Love the little stars and moon hanging. Love how they are holding each other. So cute!

The Siren by Kiera Cass

The Siren by Kiera Cass
Release Date: January 26, 2016
Publisher: HarperTeen
Age Group: Young Adult
Pages: 336
Summary: Love is a risk worth taking.

Years ago, Kahlen was rescued from drowning by the Ocean. To repay her debt, she has served as a Siren ever since, using her voice to lure countless strangers to their deaths. Though a single word from Kahlen can kill, she can’t resist spending her days on land, watching ordinary people and longing for the day when she will be able to speak and laugh and live freely among them again.

Kahlen is resigned to finishing her sentence in solitude…until she meets Akinli. Handsome, caring, and kind, Akinli is everything Kahlen ever dreamed of. And though she can’t talk to him, they soon forge a connection neither of them can deny…and Kahlen doesn’t want to.

Falling in love with a human breaks all the Ocean’s rules, and if the Ocean discovers Kahlen’s feelings, she’ll be forced to leave Akinli for good. But for the first time in a lifetime of following the rules, Kahlen is determined to follow her heart.

My Thoughts: Well, I’ve read the Selection series by Kiera Cass and loved it! I loved every one of those books so I was really excited to read The Siren! And I enjoyed it but The Selection was still better for me.

We are introduced to Kahlen who left her family a long time ago. Or should I say she really got torn away from them, even though it was a little bit of her choice. Kinda. Sorta. She now lives with a few other girls and every so often she must sing her heart out.  But, Kahlen can’t talk to anyone  but the ocean and the other girls. Yes, this was a bit weird. But once you get past that you really start to enjoy the story and everything behind it.

Kahlen also meets a boy named Akinli. She is drawn to him in ways she’s never been drawn to anyone else. And, she can’t even talk to him. She does find other ways to communicate with him.

This one is so hard to explain really. Its complex and complicated. But it’s also lovely and romantic. And each girl has their own voice even though they can only talk to one another. They are each so unique and great in their own way.

And Alkinli is just so sweet. And  understanding. And I liked the library and his family. This was just such a sweet story.
Overall:  I really really enjoyed this one. I also liked how it ended. It just felt right for them. This one was probably more of a 3.5 to 4 cupcakes for me. I didn’t like it as much as The Selection but I did enjoy it while reading it and had to know what would happen next.  

I’ll read anything Kiera Cass writes!

Cover: Like it!  Once again, I love the dress and how pretty everything looks.

Girl Saves Boy by Steph Bow

Girl Saves Boy by Steph Bowe
Release Date: N/A in US yet
Publisher: Text Publishing
Age Group: Young Adult
Pages: 288






Summary: The first time we met, Jewel Valentine saved my life.

Isn’t it enough having your very own terminal disease, without your mother dying? Or your father dating your Art teacher?

No wonder Sacha Thomas ends up in the lake that Saturday evening…

But the real question is: how does he end up in love with Jewel Valentine?

With the help of quirky teenage prodigies Little Al and True Grisham, Sacha and Jewel have a crazy adventure, with a little lobster emancipation along the way.

But Sacha’s running out of time, and Jewel has secrets of her own.

Girl Saves Boy is a hugely talented debut novel, funny and sad, silly and wise. It’s a story of life, death, love… and garden gnomes.
 


My Thoughts: When I first heard of this book, I knew I had to read it! The problem, it isn't released in the US yet and has no immediate release date! I than saw it pop up on The Book Depository so I hurried up and ordered it, I didn't care that I just spent $12 on a softcover book! I wanted it that bad! The week it was supposed to come out, I got the email notifying me it was out of stock! No! I was very disappointed and had to cancel my order! I than ended up getting it from the publisher (not in the US) and put it up on the tour site! I dived right into it!

Girl Saves Boy was a wonderful novel but it felt a little short on my expectations (notice 4 cupcakes, instead of 5 that I had originally thought it would amount too). We are introduced to Sacha and Jewel. Right from the get go, you know this book is going to be intense. The opening scene Jewel is pulling Sacha out of the water because he is trying to kill himself! We find out that Jewel is originally from the town they live in but she moved away to live with her grandparents and they are both now dead so she is back to live with her mom. She did not know Sacha before she moved. He moved there shortly after.  Jewel and Sacha see each other at school and it dawns on him she is the girl who saved his life. Sacha has had a tough life, his mom died last year, he is sick and is going to die, soon....

Jewel and Sacha start an intense and heavy relationship. They really fall in love, they talk to each other, they share moments, they spend time together. Its a beautiful love story. She does not know he's going to die for a while and that just adds to the heartbreak. She goes in with her whole heart.

There are other characters throughout the story and they just enforce how sick Sacha really is and how nobody wants to face the truth. They want him to live a long life and be happy.

My favorite scene was probably when Sacha spent the night at Jewel's. Very sweet. 

Girl Saves Boy is a great novel. Its hard to believe Steph Bowe is so young!! It has a certain beauty to it that is hard to explain.

Overall:  I had a bit of trouble adjusting to some of the words. For example, realize is spelled realised in the story. I know, its because I'm from the US! It took some getting used too but I did. The ending also left me wanting to know more, and I felt like there were a few unanswered questions I really wanted to know!  I really enjoyed Girl Saves Boy and I hope you do too!

Cover: Very stunning and beautiful cover! Don't see too many with feet on them!

Run by Kody Keplinger

Release Date: June 28, 2016
Age Group: Young Adult
Pages: 304


Summary:   Bo Dickinson is a girl with a wild reputation, a deadbeat dad, and a mama who's not exactly sober most of the time. Everyone in town knows the Dickinsons are a bad lot, but Bo doesn't care what anyone thinks.

Agnes Atwood has never gone on a date, never even stayed out past ten, and never broken any of her parents' overbearing rules. Rules that are meant to protect their legally blind daughter -- protect her from what, Agnes isn't quite sure.

Despite everything, Bo and Agnes become best friends. And it's the sort of friendship that runs truer and deeper than anything else.

So when Bo shows up in the middle of the night, with police sirens wailing in the distance, desperate to get out of town, Agnes doesn't hesitate to take off with her. But running away and not getting caught will require stealing a car, tracking down Bo's dad, staying ahead of the authorities, and -- worst of all -- confronting some ugly secrets.

My Thoughts: I just adore Keplinger. Everytime she releases a new book I have to read it quickly! And I really liked Run! However, Run was quite a bit different than her other novels. Which was good in its own unique way.

We are introduced to Bo Dickinson who everyone thinks is a wild child. All the Dickinsons are bad news in their town! But I really liked her from the get go. She was spunky and always stuck up for herself. We also meet Agnes Atwood. She’s the opposite of Bo. She’s a churchgoer goody goody.

Once Bo and Agnes become friends, so much happens. You would never think in a million years they’d get along but they understood each other a lot better than anyone would think!

I usually don’t like chapters that go between now and the past but this one handled it nicely. We see how their friendship grew and we saw how once they ran away how things went.  There is also a bit of a romance in Run between Agnes and a certain boy!

I liked learning how both families lived and how different each situation was.

I really liked this one. I didn’t like it quite as much as some of Keplinger’s other ones but this one is more aimed towards friends/family than a romance.  

Overall: This definitely felt different than Keplinger’s previous books but not in a bad way. I actually quite enjoyed reading about Agnes and Bo’s friendship and how things happened.  I also loved the doggy in the story. I liked seeing how the road trip went and how each girl grew up in their own way.  Liked this one. Probably more of a 3.5 for me.

Cover: I like it! I can see each girl looking like that. Its cute!
