Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

Hi guys,
I read "Amy & Roger's Epic Detour" and I did not expect what I got.

Summary Goodreads
(from Goodreads)
Amy Curry thinks her life sucks. Her mom decides to move from California to Connecticut to start anew--just in time for Amy's senior year. Her dad recently died in a car accident. So Amy embarks on a road trip to escape from it all, driving cross-country from the home she's always known toward her new life. Joining Amy on the road trip is Roger, the son of Amy's mother's old friend. Amy hasn’t seen him in years, and she is less than thrilled to be driving across the country with a guy she barely knows. So she's surprised to find that she is developing a crush on him. At the same time, she’s coming to terms with her father’s death and how to put her own life back together after the accident. Told in traditional narrative as well as scraps from the road--diner napkins, motel receipts, postcards--this is the story of one girl's journey to find herself.

When I ordered this book I thought it will be the typical "Girl-hates- boy-who-hates-the-girl-and-eventually-they-end-up-together" and BOY was I WRONG!!!

       Amy&Roger is a wonderful book about dealing (and no, not like in poker :P ). I know that when you look at the cover you expect it to be a romance book but it is not. IT IS SO MUCH MORE! In the beggining I felt that I was being cheated but once I finished the book I realized that I was not. This book has a totally different point. The process that both Roger and Amy go through was the point.
      The book has pictures and post-cards and playlist in it, that adds so much to the book. It kind of made me feel like I was with them and a part of the story. T
he characters were easy to relate to and the plot was intresting and made me want to read whats next and where will the road take them to. 
      In every chapter I felt like I got to know the characters a little more until I was satisfied, which is not easy with me as a reader.
      I have got to say that this book is a job well done and that Morgan Matson did a wonderful job with the descriptions. I felt like she had been in all of the places and knew exactly what she was talking about, and the back of the book just showed me I was right. She is ,what I call, a devoted writer.

I don't know why, but I am having a hard time rating this book by starts, so just go and read it and decide by yourself, you know you've got my recommendation

Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson

Hi guys,
Over the last week I read the book Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson and I LOVED it. 

(from Goodreads)
Summary (from Goodreads)17-year-old Lila has two secrets she’s prepared to take to the grave. The first is that she can move things just by looking at them. The second is that she’s been in love with her brother’s best friend, Alex, since forever.

After a mugging exposes her unique ability, Lila decides to run to the only people she can trust—her brother and Alex. They live in Southern California where they work for a secret organisation called The Unit, and Lila discovers that the two of them are hunting down the men who murdered her mother five years before. And that they’ve found them.

In a world where nothing and no one is quite as they seem, Lila quickly realises that she is not alone—there are others out there just like her—people with special powers—and her mother’s killer is one of them…

Well let me start by saying that when my friend gave it to me she did not allow me to read the back of the book and when I asked her what it was about she didn't tell me but she never let me down yet and I must say that her good record is still clean :P

The story of Hunting Lila is both a love story (since she loves Alex) and a paranormal story.
The story line is great and never gives you a dull moment. The writing was one I could relate to. I connected to her and I believe that anybody who had a crush (or love) that they felt will never happen can connect to the love story line.

Since, as far as I know, nobody really has powers it was hard to connect on a personal level but I could understand how she felt during that story line as well. 

I loved Alex and Jack, they had everything I love in my Male leading characters. Alex was kind and funny, a rough guy yet soft. Exactly my taste XD. Jack, Lila's brother, is alot like Alex but he is abit rash and more stubborn. I loved how he cared for Lila. There are only a few family scences that I love more than a protective brother scence.

Well guys, I read this book in three days eventhough I had alot of things on my plate over the last week. I enjoyed every moment in the book. It made me smile, it made me laugh, it got me pissed off and it got me to feel fuzzy inside. 
This book definitely goes into my Favorites bookselfes. My friend lowned loaned me her book and I am sure I will buy myself my own copy and the next book when it comes out.
This book get 5 stars out of 5.

Noa :)


Cathcing Fire by Suzanne Collins

Hi guys, I know I have been absent for a long time but I have a really busy schedule, but now I'm here to review the second Hunger Games book, Catching Fire.

from (Google search)
Summary (from Goodreads)Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol-- a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.

In Catching Fire, the second novel of the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before... and surprising readers at every turn.

Well after reading the first book and watching the movie, which I must say I enjoyed, I thought what can happen next? Well this story took me by surprise. Katniss is fighting for her life and we are fighting with her. She believes that the Captiol will not stop until they remove Katniss from this world and her one goal is to keep everyone she knows safe.
This book was written in a great way. I felt I was a part of the story and just watching from above, kind of like being in the Game's control room. In every move someone made I started to think how does this effects our main characters.
Another thing that I loved in this book is (SPOILER HERE)

the love triangle that was starting to devolpe in the last book. If you read my last posts you can see I'm a romantic, so the Katniss-Peeta-Gale love triangle added a nice, different scene to the book. I have never been in a love triangle in my life, but I could actually understand what Katniss was feeling which I believe shows the great writting ability of Suzanne Collins.

So if you haven't read this book, go and read it I believe you won't regret it.
This book get 5 starts for the wonderfull story line, the surprises that don't stop comming, the love triangle and the wonderful writting of Suzanne Collins.

well guys, what about you? Did you read the book? If so did you enjoy it?
Can't wait to hear form you,


The Awekening by L.J Smith

Hi guys,
I am sorry that I didn't write this review sooner but as I wrote in the last post, my computer had a kind of a breakdown.
Earlier this month I read The Vampire Diaries by L.J Smith and I really DID NOT like this book.


( I read it in Hebrew and this is the Hebrew cover)
Summary (From Goodreads)Elena Gilbert is a pretty, popular teen who was orphaned when her parents were killed in an accident. Despite the tragedy, her life has always been normal and wholesome. Until the beginning of the school year, when two new vampire brothers show up to shake the peaceful universe at Robert E. Lee High.

Let me start by saying that I am a fan of the series. I read the book and for the most part I found it kind of annoying. Elena, the main character is a popular girl, that believes that she deserves EVERYTHING. I found Elena as a whiny , annoying girl, the stereotype of the popular girl.
Stefan, is so full of sadness but when he speaks instead of sounding sad he is whining about his life and how he is isn't happy with himself.

Bottom Line
This book was annoying and the charactes were whiny. It had some good written scenes.
This book get 2-2.5 stars





Hi guys,
just wanted to let you know that I did not forget the Blog, I am having issues with my computer it will just take some time :)
