Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Rating: 3.17 stars (goodreads)

Summary: New York Times bestselling author David Levithan takes young readers on a twisting journey through truth, reality, and fantasy and belief.

Aidan disappeared for six days. Six agonizing days of searches and police and questions and constant vigils. Then, just as suddenly as he vanished, Aidan reappears. Where has he been? The story he tells is simply. . . impossible. But it’s the story Aidan is sticking to.

His brother, Lucas, wants to believe him. But Lucas is aware of what other people, including their parents, are saying: that Aidan is making it all up to disguise the fact that he ran away.

When the kids in school hear Aidan’s story, they taunt him. But still Aidan clings to his story. And as he becomes more of an outcast, Lucas becomes more and more concerned. Being on Aidan’s side would mean believing in the impossible. But how can you believe in the impossible when everything and everybody is telling you not to?

A boy gets lost for 6 days and he comes back he has a mysterious and unrealistic story to tell about where he went. Nobody seems to believe him but his yonger brother who is willing to listening to what he has to say. But was Aidan in a different world for the time he was gone or is he making it all up? And what are the repercussions of his disappering on his family?

I gotta admit that though i wasn’t too interested on the book i picked it up because of the author. I love David Levithan’s writing, so even though the book is a middle grade i thought it could be interesting.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that the book wasn’t good, but it fell short aside other books from the author.

The idea is interesting enough, a boy comes back from a different world but nobody but his brother believes it, he tells stories and gets bullied at school, his parents don’t want to know anything about the stories Aidan is “making up” so Lucas, his brother listens.

I loved the dynamics between the brothers, how Lucas didn’t question his brother much and believed him and wanted to know more, when no one wants to hear about a fantasy world Aidan made out. I loved how Lucas helped him, how he was there for his big brother all the steps of the way.

To be completely honest i feel this one story fits perfectly with the Wayward Children Series by Seanan McGuire, and so, it didn’t feel as innovating as i was expecting.

There isn’t much character development in the book, the characters stay as they were from the very beginning.

There is mention of the LGBT+ community, but those are pretty pass by moments, which i think are important because they are just part of life and they don’t always need to be the center of a story sometimes they just happen to be there.

Overall, is an interesting enough book that i did read to the end, so i guess it is engaging enough. I give it 3 stars though in goodreads because i don’t feel it deserves much more.

I appreciate we get a response at the end of the story of whether things happened or not, or maybe we just want to believe it as the characters themselves did?

I recommend it, especially to MG children.

Book Series I’d Like To Finish Reading

Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1)

Penryn and the end of days by Susan Ee [2/3] – I read the first two books and i really loved it, i remember loving these books and i was so happy there was no romance in it… until i started the third book and it blew in my face, there was suddenly a romance and i was like… WTH? When did this started? Anyway, now i’m ready for it and i think i may read this sooner than expected.

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer [3/4] – I loved Cinder and by Scarlet i was in love with this series, the problem was that Winter is HUGE and i stress a lot when the books are huge, so i never finished the series, but i bought the audiobook and maybe that way i will be able to finsih it. I really want to know what happens at the end. I really love the way the author created this world… wish me luck.

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares (Dash & Lily, #1)

Dash And Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan [2/3] I enjoyed the first book and loved the pair but the second book felt unnecessary so i wonder how different will it be with a third book. Anyways, i’ll be reading it at some point, maybe by christmas since this is a trilogy about christmas… idk, we’ll see.

Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle, #1)

The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini [1/4] I remember reading and loving the first book i really don’t know why i didn’t keep on reading them. I hope one day i’ll do it.

Every Day (Every Day, #1)

Everyday by David Levithan [2/3] I read the first two, or more like devoured them, i really love this story, it’s so different from every other book i read back then, but when the third book came out i wasn’t really reading anymore… i need to fix it. I hope i do it this year.

The Giver (The Giver, #1)

The Giver by Lois Lowry [1/4] The world of The Giver is an interesting one and i remember reading the first book and truly loving it. After that i got lazy, these aren’t long books i don’t know why i didn’t keep on reading them, i need to, i hope to finish this quartet one day.

The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1)

His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman [2/3] Or the way i call them the doomsday books. It’s a long story i have with these books, i may tell it one day. I just know i really enjoyed the first two booksbut couldn’t bring myself to read the third and final one. At some point i think i checked ut the ending on wikipedia but i don’t remember it. This series is one i need to finish or at least watch the tv show.

The Gospel According to Larry

The Gospel According To Larry [2/3] The first book is part of my teen years and i’e red it a ton of times because it meant so much to me when i read it. Now, the second book was suhc a weird sequel with “Larry” wanting to be president. It was a real WTH? But i guess someday i’ll want to finish what i started and finish this trilogy… for Larry, who taught me so much growing up.

Poison Study (Study, #1)

Study by Maria V. Snyder [1/3 or 6?] I only read the first book a few years ago and it was very good i don’t remember why i didn’t keep reading them… now i don’t know it this is a trilogy or two trilogies or six books at once so i guess i’ll have to figure that out. Anyway, i remember a great plot twist at the end of the first book so i really want to keep on reading them. This was the book that made me write this post.

Wow, i have some serios reading to do…What are some series you wish you’d finished reading but you didn’t? Leave your comment down below!

The Twelve Days Of Dash And Lily By Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily

THE TWELVE DAYS OF DASH AND LILY BY RACHEL COHN AND DAVID LEVITHAN

Genre: YA, contemporary, romance, christmas
Pages: 215
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Rating: 3.47 Stars

Summary: Dash and Lily have had a tough year since they first fell in love among the shelves of their favorite bookstore. Lily’s beloved grandfather suffered a heart attack, and his difficult road to recovery has taken a major toll on her typically sunny disposition.

With only twelve days left until Christmas—Lily’s favorite time of the year—Dash, Lily’s brother Langston, and their closest friends must take Manhattan by storm to help Lily recapture the unique holiday magic of a glittering, snow-covered New York City in December.

Since we’ve last seen Dash and Lily things hasn’t been the best. After a rough year together, Lily has lost all her cheer for the holidays and Langston (Lily’s brother) ask Dash for help, he needs to get Lily’s christmas spirit back before the holidays.

I don’t really know how to feel about this book. I read it immediatly after finish the first one because i fell for the characters really bad but i feel like maybe the book wasn’t necessary.

Let’s talk about the story because we already talked about the characters and the writing style in the previous review.

I was expecting Dash and Lily having a great time together. It took them so much time to be together, i wanted them to be happy. Clearly, for a story to be written there are not happy moments unless it’s the final chapter or two of a book.

I don’t complain about the plot, the plot was fun and interesting.

I just wanted them so much to be happy with one another, at times it was painful to watch and it got me very preocuppied about the last book, Mind the gap, Dash and Lily, because i’m pretty sure it is gonna be even a bigger mess than this one, since i already read the summary and it sounds like it’s gonna hurt me.

After reading this book i have my questions regarding the next book, since i felt a bit disappointed by this one… should i keep reading? should i leave it here as they ended up pretty happy? I don’t know what to do. If you ead the third book please let me know your opinion on the matter.

Overall, it is a nice book about christmas spirit and romance, i give it maybe a 3.5 stars rounding it up to 4 on goodreads.

Did you read this book? Did you enjoy it? Would you be reading it after watching/reading Dash and Lily’s book of dares? Please leave your comment down below!

Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Dash and Lily's Book of Dares

DASH AND LILY’S BOOK OF DARES BY RACHEL COHN AND DAVID LEVITHAN

Genre: YA, contemporary, romance, christmas
Pages: 260
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Rating: 3.78 stars

Summary: “I’ve left some clues for you.
If you want them, turn the page.
If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please.”


So begins the latest whirlwind romance from the bestselling authors of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? Or are Dash and Lily only destined to trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York? Could their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions? Or will they be a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?

Rachel Cohn and David Levithan have written a love story that will have readers perusing bookstore shelves, looking and longing for a love (and a red notebook) of their own. 

Lily loves christmas and Dash hates it, but this won’t stop neither of them to finding a little piece missing in both of them as Dash finds Lily’s notebook which dares him to find the joy he is lacking. Never meeting each other but pourng their hearts in the notebook they’ll get to know each other and will absolutely fall for each other without even realizing it. -Do you dear to feel the love this season?(paraphrasing netflix).

Wow, i regularly love David Levithan books and this one even being co-written wasn’t a disappointment.

Both Dash and Lily are lovable character you just want to know more about. Normally i find charatcers who love books in books to be condescending, like “oh look, they are a snowflake”, but this time it was very heartfelt. I had no problem with the way the characters behaved.

I loved the plot, it was such a sweet way of knowing something. I think if i was one of them i would also participate in the dares and have fun. It is, after all, a great way of knowing someone and falling.

The writing isn’t particularly special, i gotta admit. It’s simple and straight (no pun intended) forward. I don’t usually enjoy this kind of books, but i really loved Dash and Lily, and they were worth the reading. All the time i was like “when are they gonna meet? are they meeting yet? will they meet?” i just was expecting the moment so so much, that when it happened i just almost fell from my seat.

There was something magical in the mundane kind of story it was.

By the way Dash and Lily became OTP, not only because of the book but also because of the netflix original series, which i’m currently watching. It is pretty accurate and i like that, it changed a few timings but as far as i can see most of it it’s there.

One of my favorite things on the book is how easily Lily infects you with the holiday spirit. I was totally feeling Christmasy as i was reading the book and even Dash could not ruin that for me.

It’s fun, it’s easy, it’s full of heart and love to love, christmas and reading. I gave rounded it up to 4 stars because as soon as i finished reading i immediatly wanted to read The Twelve Days of Dash And Lily. It may be because of the netflix series… i don’t really know.

Would i recommend it? Sure if you are looking for a fun and easy reading for the season i totally recommend it. Are you a fan of the authors? Read it. You want to feel the christmas spirit? Read it. You just… David Levithan is one of my favorite authors i cannot be unbiased.

Just give it a try, dare to enjoy it and then tell me your thoughts on the book! Leave your comment down below!

I’ve left some clues for you. If you want them, turn the page. If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please.
At the urge of her lucky-in-love brother, sixteen-year-old Lily has left a red notebook full of dares on her favourite bookshop shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept. Curious, snarky Dash isn’t one to back down from a challenge – and the Book of Dares is the perfect distraction he’s been looking for.

As they send each other on a scavenger hunt across Manhattan, they’re falling for each other on paper. But finding out if their real selves share their on-page chemistry could be their biggest dare yet…. 

Let it Snow

An ill-timed storm on Christmas Eve buries the residents of Gracetown under multiple feet of snow and causes quite a bit of chaos. One brave soul ventures out into the storm from her stranded train and sets off a chain of events that will change quite a few lives. Over the next three days one girl takes a risky shortcut with an adorable stranger, three friends set out to win a race to the Waffle House (and the hash brown spoils), and the fate of a teacup pig falls into the hands of a lovesick barista.

A trio of today’s bestselling authors – John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle- brings all the magic of the holidays to life in three hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and kisses that will steal your breath away.

Authors I Want To Read More From.

WE all have favorite authors we read a ton of book written by… as i previously talked about (you can find my post here). But we also have a lot of authors we read maybe once or twice and totally loved, though we haven’t had the time to read anything by them again….

Following this i came up with the idea of looking for authors i would want to read from again because i love the way the write, their ideas for books, their talent, their back story… it could be anything, really.

So, today i bring you the list of my top 10 authors i want to read more books from.

(In no specific order):

Rainbow Rowell: I know i read a few books from her (more than two) but i absolutely love her style and the stories she has to tell. I loved her from the very first book i read by her, Fangirl. And had never disappointed me, yet.

David Levithan: I love him, i absolutely adore his trilogy of Every Day and i really want to read more books by him. He is such an inspiration to me, i met him once in a book signing and he was so humble and got really happy when i told him i flew all the way there to meet him.

Nina LaCour: This author writes like if writing was silk and she was making the most wonderful kind of cloth. I read two books by her and she brings me to tears just by writing HI.

Stephen King: The master of horror. I really want to enter his universe of writing and enjoy it as much as possible.

Angie Thomas: I will never forget the first time i read The Hate You Give. I cried so badly, even with the movie. I just, i adored the book and she seems like she has so many important things to say, i’m looking forward to reading more books by her.

Nic Stone: I read Dear Martin and it brought me to tears so many times. I already bought Dear Justyce and i hope to read it ASAP. She brings so much heart to her work, it is AMAZING.

Jennifer Niven: I love this woman. She is my inspiration to being here today. I love her books, the way she is, how she calls her fans Lovelies, everything. I recently purchased her new book Breathless and she made me a video thanking me for buying it and for loving her work and i cried for days.

Shaun David Hutchinson: This person has one of the most interesting minds i’ve read. He has so many dfferent ideas for books and he writes so wonderfully. I absolutely adore his work and i hope to read much much more.

Haruki Murakami: Did i tell you i own all his books? I own them all… I haven’t read them all yet, but this man has amazing talent and i love his books to pieces. I read about four of them and i can’t get enough of his writing style.

Ann Brashares: I read one book by her My Name Is Memory and is one of my favorite of all times, i remember so many quotes, like Nina LaCour the way she wrote that book was magnficent and i can’t wait to get my hands on more books by her.

And those are my favorites!

What are some authors you are wanting to read more from? Leave your comment down below!

Happy Readings!

Book to screen adaptations I can’t wait to watch! And viceversa.

The ‘bringing books to the big screen’ trend is still here (and thank God for that, because I love -most- adaptations) and 2018 is looking like a very promising year for YA books!

I got to admit I didn’t know so many books I totally loved were becoming movies this year and some statements for them are just around the corner!

Oh, yes! Even books I never expected to see on the big screen are a few days away from being released and I couldn’t been happier.

So, seen as I loved these books I thought of sharing with you the news and a little opinion on them.

Every day by David Levithan.

Okay, I seriously didn’t know or expect this book to become a movie but I’m so incredible hyped over it! The author is one of my favorites and this book and it’s companion ‘Another Day’ are my favorites! I even traveled to London to meet him a few years ago!! I read it a few years back and I’ll be rereading it so I can compare the movie and the book and make a full review of both of them.

Ready Player One (Ready Player One, #1)

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.

This book was of my favorites when I read it for the first time (and it still is). The book is full of geek references, mostly from the 80’s if I remember right. I learned a lot of pop culture and it was amazing. Also, apparently there will be a sequel?! I just found out but I hope it isn’t less than this one. I can’t wait to watch the movie, like I would pay so much so I could watch it right this moment.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli.

Get out! This is my fluffy to go book, like for real. I’ve read this book so many times already and I hold Simon very close to my heart. I could talk about him all day to be honest, because he is an amazing character and I can’t wait to see him on the screen. Also, a new book from the author is coming our way and it has one of the side characters as the main and I just.. I need that book already.

Did I say book to screen and viceversa? Yeah I also want to talk about those.

Cardcaptor Sakura by Clamp is back!!

I could literally cry and I did when I found out this was happening. The Clear Card Arc started at the beginning of January and oh, did I miss these characters. I mean.. Iread the manga and watch the original at least once a year but it never changes… You know? So now having new episodes is like being alive again… All I can think of is Mushu saying:

Altered Carbon (Takeshi Kovacs, #1)

Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan.

Okay, I watched the Netflix series already but I’m very curious about how much it relies on the book… So yes, I got me the first book on the trilogy in the hopes I’ll stop reading fanfiction and go back to books. I say as I start reading another CCS fanfiction and praise the author for writing the thing.

Last but never the least The Last Jedi novelization is due the first days of March and I already preorder it.

Resultado de imagen para the last jedi

Mm.. I never talked about the movie on the blog and I won’t most likely.. I’ll just say that I’m a.) Curious about what lies beneath the surface of what we saw b.) I was left with a lot of questions and I need some answers… Mostly I need some POVs… And many clarifications I know we won’t get until the next movie but I’m dying here and I need them to throw me a bone!!!!

Have a good day!

T5W: Books From Before I Joined The Blogosphere

As always, topics for these entries are taken from the Top 5 Wednesday group on Goodreads. The group was created by Lainey. Now the group is under Samantha’s moderation, you can find her here.

Top 5 Wednesday: Books i loved before i joined the blogosphere!

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4) Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

I’ve been reading these books since i was about 9-10 years old, so it’s pretty obvious that these are books i loved many years before i even thought about having a blog at all. These books are my childhood and the one stable thing in my life as a whole. Man, i love these books so much. *The Goblet of Fire is my favorite from the series*.

 

Daddy-Long-Legs (Daddy-Long-Legs, #1) Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster

This book was read to me for the first time when i was 10 and for the very first reading, i loved it to pieces.  It’s been a while from that first time and I’ve read it many times since then, but i never get tired of it, quite the opposite to be honest, with each time i revisit these characters i love them even more.

 

 

The Gospel According to Larry The Gospel According to Larry by Janet Tashjian

The book that closes the holy trinity of my beloved ‘childhood’ books is this one (the other two titles being the ones above). I don’t think i can express in words how much i love this book… it means so much and i’ve learned so much from it. It’s a shame it’s so little people know and talk about it.

 

 

My Name is Memory My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares

From the author who brought The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, this book is one of my favorites. I read it maybe two years ago but as i just started reading it became an instant favorite, forever. It’s a shame not many people seem to know or talk about it in the online community because i think many would really enjoy it… I recommend it so much.

 

Every Day (Every Day, #1) Every Day by David Levithan

This was the first book i’ve ever read by the author David Levithan and the moment i started reading i fell in love with it and the way he writes. Honestly, i think everyone should try and read at least one David Levithan book because they are just the best. Since reading this first book and joining the blogosphere i got an e-arc or the ‘sequel/companion’ of this book to review by netgalley and then i also got to meet the author and it was just awesome. Like, starting reading this book brought so many satisfactory and happy moments that part of them i could then share in my blog… it’s been just AMAZING.

Reminiscing Monday #8: Every Day

Monday’s here, which means i’m bringing you once again this section, where i talk about Books, Shows and Movies i’ve read/seen a while ago but because of reasons i haven’t talked about them in the blog before.

Here i’ll review mostly from the feelings and impressions these left in me back in the day and what i can remember to this day.

And now… let me intruduce to you the book i want to talk about today!

Every Day by David Levithan

Every Day (Every Day, #1) I cannot remember the day i became obssessed with having the book, but i do remember very much the day i started reading it. My sister was coming back from USA and i had to go get her from the airport. Little did she expect my non reaction to her finding me reading the book instead of waiting for her in the waiting space (or whatever should i call it…).

I’ve been waiting for so long to get my hands on the book i was so happy to finally read it nothing else mattered until i finished it.

The story is kind of weird, a *person* that every morning wakes up in someone else’s body, each day a different person, but the same soul (i guess…).

The thing is, it’s never the same person twice, so it’s tricky to have real friends, not that A'(the name the main character gave him/herself) cares much about it. Since A’ was little A’ decided to not do something that would change the lifeof the person he/she was habitating for the day.

This, obviousy until one day A’ meets a girl, Rhiannon, and falls in love with her while habitating the body of her boyfriend. From that moment A’ will go distances to keep in touch with hereven though he/she keeps changing bodies.

The thing i liked the most about this book was not only the dynamic the book has and the creativity of the story, but the fact that when A’and Rhiannon start to get closer, it becomes much a deeper issue that just being able to meet each other. As seen in the companion of this book Another Day, it’s about what we love in the person we like, because Rhiannon has a lot to understand and decide while thinking about A’, what if when A’ appears next time he/she is a girl’s body? does she love A’ only because she think about A’ as a boy? is A’ either a boy or a girl?

I think this is a great book that can make people think about what really matters in love.

The book has some unanswered questions, that for me were a little annoying, but apparently a sequel to Every Day will be coming our way some day (…that should be the name of the book too..

I really don’t know hwat to really expect since the companion took about three years. Which reminds me that of the second book i got an arc last year, and i was the happiest person around. Even though it was only the same story told by Rhiannon. It still was interesting and even deeper than the previous book.

I will always wonder how could David Levithan think about all the stff going on the story and the characters feelings, because it’s so out there, so many things i would’ve never thought about it it wasn’t because of the book.

OH! I almost forgot to say that last year i got to meet David Levithan and had the chance to tell him how important this book was to me, because i loved it so much and i loved A’ so much, i just couldn’t. And it was so amazing. Truth be told, it was in London, and i had with me my Every Day book when i traveled and it has an accident on my suitcase, but i gave it to David so he could sign it anyway, so even though it looks terrible i’m never getting rid of the book! my precious!

Well, i also bought a copy of Another Day, but it didn’t make it there with me, it just came back with me … it’s signed too :d

However, if you hadn’t read these books yet, you can choose to read only one of them, whichever you prefer, or you can read both, but i recommend you give them a chance, because they are wonderful tumblr_inline_ncy795zGhN1qen4yd.

Happy reading!
