How do you defy destiny?

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.

As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.

In this exciting debut, we meet Helen Hamilton who is desperate to not stick out in the crowd. She always wanted to blend in, but instead, she was called a freak and felt like one. She starts having nightmares, which causes her to wake up with muddy, dirty and bloody feet while she wasn't even out of bed. And then the Delos family moves onto the island, and everything changes. The Furies, or the Fates, have a path in mind for Helen and the Delos family that was predicted ages ago. That path forces Helen and Lucas Delos together, and at the same time tries to tear them apart. While Helen struggles with who she is, there are threats outside the island, more than willing to help Helen get rid of her newfound powers - and her life.

Let me start by saying Oh my gods! I was SO excited to get this book and did a lot of happy dancing when I got it in. I read it with fascination and I can't say anything else than that I loved this book. It's based off Greek mythology, which I love, and Josephine Angelini has found a way to incorporate this in everyday life.

I had a little difficulty in the first couple of pages of the book when we first meet Helen and her best friend Claire, in which the characters are first introduced. Thankfully, after that handful of pages, I was sucked right in. Helen is stubborn, but a likable character and easy to follow around. I am very fond of Claire, who is tougher than she appears because of her length, who proves to be a great friend.

I didn't like Hector at first, but he started to win a little piece of my heart with every chapter. The twins, Lucas and Ariadne, were sweet and loving siblings. I really respected them throughout the story. Then there was Cassandra, who I hated at first. But she grew on me and I now understand why she is the way she is - or at least, a part of it. And then there's Lucas. I found him to be a great love interest and a very loyal friend. He's proud and defensive over Helen, but not to the extreme.

The story is packed with twists and turns that fit perfectly towards the plot. I loved all the references to the Greek mythology that Angelini incorporated and I found myself sad when the book ended. I want to know what happens next!

My overall rating:

Five stars - because I'm desperate to read the second book in the series. Is it 2012 yet?

Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Published: September 1st, 2009
Publisher: Scholastic
Pages: 391
Challenge: 100+ Reading Challenge, YA Series Challenge, 350 Page Books Challenge
Other: Second book in The Hunger Games Trilogy. All books are published and the first book is being made into a movie.
Buy the book: Bookdepository

Please note: This review contains some spoilers for readers who haven't read the first book - The Hunger Games. Reading is at your own risk. 

Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won the annual competition described in Hunger Games, but the aftermath leaves these victors with no sense of triumph. Instead, they have become the poster boys for a rebellion that they never planned to lead. That new, unwanted status puts them in the bull's-eye for merciless revenge by The Capitol.

In this book, we see how Katniss and Peeta cope with winning the Hunger Games. They do the Victory Tour and they are suddenly the heart of a never intended rebellion in the various Districts in Panem. Peacekeepers, more forceful than the Peacekeepers who were stationed in District Twelve before, are strict and punish everyone who may be slightly disobeying. Katniss learns that in several Districts, there are signs of rebellion. And with the Quarter Quell coming up, she has more than enough on her mind.

Oh man, this book was so good. I loved it. Where do I begin? The world that Suzanne Collins has created, becomes more and more cruel while there are signs of rebellion that the Capitol is trying to hide. There were some hints on what was going to happen later on in the timeperiod that's living up to the Quarter Quell edition of the Hunger Games. I loved everything about it and began to understand what was happening in the book with all the subtle hints. The only one that I didn't really saw coming, was Johanna. I found her stubbornness interesting to read, because sometimes she would act differently from what she said.

Seriously, if you haven't read any of the books, I really recommend you do. I didn't want to read this series beforehand, because I didn't like the synopsis and the summaries that I've read online. But I heard so many great things about these books and man, do they live up to my expectations. I have to force myself to wait with reading Mockingjay, which is the final book in the series. I don't want the series to be over this quick, but it's getting harder and harder.

My overall rating:

Five stars for Catching Fire - how could I possibly give anything less?

Review: Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Published: August 16th, 2007
Publisher: Razorbill
Pages: 331
Challenge: 100+ Reading Challenge, YA Series Challenge
Other: First book in the Vampire Academy series. The last book, Last Sacrifice, came out in 2010.
Buy the book: Bookdepository

St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school—it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's—the very place where they're most in danger...
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy's ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world's fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

In the first book of the well-loved Vampire Academy series, we meet Rose and Lissa. Almost immediately at the beginning of the book, Rose realized that they're being watched, and decides to run for it together with Lissa. In the group of Guardians that are there to take Rose and Lissa, there's Dimitri. Dark and handsome - and very serious in his job to protect Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They are taken (back) to Vampire Academy, where they had fled from two years before. During the rest of the book, we see that not everyone is equally friendly and Rose and Lissa have to struggle to stay safe.

First up, I want to say that I really liked this book. I didn't *love* it as most of the blogosphere seems to do, but I can certainly see its appeal. I think this book is a great start for the rest of the series and I'm looking forward to reading the next book, which I will be picking up soon.

I liked Rose's determination in protecting Lissa. She takes her job very seriously, even though she's not fully trained yet. I also really liked that in Dimitri - even though Rose couldn't seem to take her eyes off him. I think he can grow on me to be a very swoonworthy character.

The villain in this story wasn't really clear to me until it was clear to Rose, which I think was a great revelation, because there were many hints towards this person. The way this was worked into the story was well done.

Overall, I really liked this book and Richelle Mead's writing style. This was the first book I've read that was written by her and I'm looking forward to reading more. I've heard that she's written some adult titles as well, so I think I'll check those out and put them on my wishlist, as well.

My overall rating:

Four stars - because I think this is a great start for a series, and I'm looking forward to reading more!

Guest post at Mostly Reading YA

Those of you who follow me on twitter, may have seen this already, but I did a guest post on Mostly Reading YA! She's hosting Translation Month throughout April, in which she gives special attention to books that have been written in a different language than English. There are several other bloggers doing guest posts and reviews on her blog, but she also did an interview with Dutch publisher Blossom Books about publishing in The Netherlands. I found it very interesting to read! Also, she's hosting a giveaway where you can win Ruby Red (by Kersten Gier) goodies!

The book that I read and reviewed for Translation Month on her blog is No and Me by Delphine de Vigan, which was originally written in French.

Review: Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
Published: October 26th, 2010
Publisher: Knopf
Pages: 272
Challenge: 100+ Reading Challenge
Buy the book: Bookdepository

“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 New York Timesbestselling 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? 

Lily has left a red moleskine notebook in her favorite bookstore with a couple of dares for the lucky finder. Dash stumbles upon the notebook, and takes up the dares. The book evolves in a hunt for the answers they need to go on with their adventure. With help of some relatives and friends, they travel across the city while writing in the notebook.

This book was SO cute. And so funny! I was reading in the Ikea restaurant while I went furniture shopping, and there were some people giving me funny looks while I was actually laughing out loud. Yes, that was kind of awkward. But I couldn't help myself! In a funny and witty story written from both Dash' and Lily's perspective, we follow them around hunting for clues - and eachother. The feel of this book is a little Christmas-ish, since it takes place around Christmas, but I had a blast reading this book.

Both writers have a great writing style and are nice and sarcastic in their part. Personally, I found Dash' perspective funny right away (written by David), while it took me a chapter or two to find Lily's chapters (written by Rachel) equally funny. But after that, I caught myself laughing out loud. More than once (or twice). Besides being funny, it's such a cute romance story and somehow it reminded me a little of You've Got Mail, my favorite movie of all time.

If you haven't read this book - I'd recommend you pick up a copy.

My overall rating:

4.5 stars for Dash & Lily - because they're cute, funny and yes, sometimes quite snarly.

Buy the book: Bookdepository

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself. 

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Beatrice is a sixteen year old girl who is forced to make a decision about the faction where she will spend the rest of her live on Choosing Day. She surprises everyone with her choice and starts a new life. While she struggles with the challenges of initiation to the faction she's chosen, she also struggles with her own feelings and the secret that she is desperate to keep, because it could kill her when the people around her find out. In a society that not is what it seems, Beatrice struggles to stay alive and not stand out.

In this thrilling debut novel of Veronica Roth, we meet a sixteen year old girl that is easy to relate to. She lives in a faction where she doesn't feel at home - but she is not sure if she will chose a different faction for the rest of her life. I found Beatrice easy to relate to and besides that a tough character. The writing made it easy for me to imagine the five factions and the lively descriptions of the characters formed faces and personalities as if the character was standing right in front of me.

In the beginning of the book, we meet Four (by the way, I knew who he was immediately when he was mentioned, he he) and he appears to be a tough guy - but he proves himself to be invaluable to Tris. I liked Four, but nothing more than that - I didn't love him the way some of the other bloggers seem to do. I found Uriah an interesting character, as well as Eric, and, even though he scared the crap out of me, Peter. I'm curious to find out more about Marcus in the next book as well.

In this dystopian world, nothing is as perfect as it seems and Veronica Roth has written a thrilling story of the people in the society that struggle with the factions and living in them. It had me hooked within minutes and I read the book within 24 hours - even though I had a seriously bad migraine.

My overall rating:

Five stars - but beware, this book might be addictive. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to preorder me a shiny hardcover copy..

Review: Club Dead by Charlaine Harris

Club Dead by Charlaine Harris
Published: May 6th, 2006
Publisher: Gollancz
Pages: 274
Challenge: 100+ Reading Challenge
Other: Third book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. There are currently 10 books in the series, with two more being published in the future. The eleventh installment, Dead Reckoning, will be published May 3rd, 2011.
Buy the book: Bookdepository

Things between cocktail waitress Sookie and her vampire boyfriend Bill seem to be going excellently (apart from the small matter of him being undead) until he leaves town for a while. A long while. Bill's sinister boss Eric has an idea of where to find him, whisking her off to Jackson, Mississippi to mingle with the under-underworld at Club Dead. When she finally catches up with the errant vampire, he is in big trouble and caught in an act of serious betrayal. This raises serious doubts as to whether she should save him or start sharpening a few stakes of her own ...

In this third book in the series, Bill is going on a secret undercover mission. After two days, Sookie learns that he's been abducted, and Eric sends her on a trip to Jackson to stay with a Were that owes him, so he can take her to a club owned by the Vampire King, and listen to their thoughts.

What I particularly liked about this book, is that Bill has screwed things up with Sookie. I don't like Bill and I really dislike his behaviour - he's possessive and selfish and honestly, I can't see what's attractive about him. So to learn that Bill wouldn't really be present in this book wasn't something I'd mind. I would have liked to see some more of Eric, since there's never too much Eric in a Sookie Stackhouse book, but oh well.

Sookie seems to have a habit of getting herself into trouble - or rather be sent into trouble that other people made. She's always in the middle of what is going on in Bon Temps or whatever place is nearby or the source of the trouble. I really liked the Were that was introduced in this book, Alcide. I liked him as a character, even though he didn't seem to realize what an evil person his ex/not so ex was.

Overall, I really enjoyed myself while reading this book. A big part of that was because we didn't see a lot of Bill in this book, and I was glad about that. I'm actually really looking forward to the rest of the series now and I even read Dead to the World right after I finished reading this one.

My overall rating:

Club Dead gets 3.5 stars - and I'm starting to like this series more and more. I'm looking forward to reading the next books!

Books and Music

So I have been wondering.. Do you have books that remind you of songs or songs that remind you of a certain book?

While I was reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, I listened to Britney Spears - Hold it against me so much, that every time I hear that song now, I think of The Hunger Games. I just see Katniss in the arena with her bow and arrows and the scene with Peeta in the cave. I think it's fitting, even though at first I couldn't see it. While I was reading Sing me to Sleep by Angela Morrison, I listened a lot to Mumford & Sons - The Cave, which makes me think of the sad story in the book now. Not nearly as much as I relate Britney to THG, though, but still.

The other way around I don't have many combo's... When I think of it, I can't even name one.

Let me know in the comments if you have book & song combo's :)

Review: The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan

The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan
Published: May 6th, 2008
Publisher: Hyperion
Pages: 361
Challenge: 100+ Reading Challenge
Other: Fourth book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. All books are published.
Buy the book: Bookdepository

Percy Jackson isn't expecting freshman orientation to be any fun.  But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears on campus, followed by demon cheerleaders, things quickly move from bad to diabolical. 

In this latest installment of the blockbuster series, time is running out as war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord Kronos draws near. Even the safe haven of Camp Half-Blood grows more vulnerable by the minute as Kronos's army prepares to invade its once impenetrable borders. To stop them, Percy and his demigod friends must set out on a quest through the Labyrinth-a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn. Full of humor and heart-pounding action, this fourth book promises to be their most thrilling adventure yet.

Note: Since this is the fourth book in the series, some of the book might have slight spoilers for the first three books. I'll do my best to prevent any spoilers to appear in my review, but I'm 'warning' you anyway :)

In this fourth book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, we are still following Percy and his friends. Percy is going on orientation for the school where he will be doing his freshman year, but since we know Percy, not everything goes according to plan. The Titan Lord Kronos is threatening Camp Half-Blood, but also the world. Percy and his friends go out on a quest in order to stop him and his evil army from their plan.

I have to say that I found this book slightly less enjoyable than The Titan's Curse. That third book is still my favorite in the series, but that doesn't mean that this book was any less than fantastic. We meet more gods, demigods and monsters and the storyline even involves a mortal, who proves to be invaluable for Percy and his friends. I read this book in one day and I'm still loving Rick Riordan's writing style and his way of incorporating the gods into daily life.

My overall rating:

A 5- star rating for The Battle of the Labyrinth - because I found this to be a little less than The Lightning Thief, The Sea of Monsters and The Titan's Curse.

Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Published: February 1st, 2011
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 441
Challenge: 100+ Reading Challenge, 350 Page Books Challenge
Other: First book in the Delirium Trilogy. Book 2, Pandemonium, will come out in 2012.
Buy the book: Bookdepository

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. 

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

In Delirium, love is seen as a disease: Amor deliria nervosa. The people in Maine are kept tightly under control and everyone get a procedure done once they turn 18 to prevent them from falling in love - or really feel love at all in any form. Before they are married, boys and girls are not allowed to touch eachother. Our main character, Lena, is 17 when we first meet her. She is working toward the day on which she has her interview with the Regulators, who will decide with whom she will be matched for life. In that situation, she first sees Alex. And eventually Lena does the unthinkable: she falls in love.

First up, let me say how much I loved this book. Our protagonist is a 17 year old girl who's mom is said to have killed herself because of the fact she loved a man. Love is considered distructive in this society, which is the reason for the procedure that every 18 year old will have in order to rule out the fact that they can love. This idea is so cuel! The idea was a little similar to Matched, in which Officials match people to their partner for life, but I found Delirium to be of a completely different caliber. The storyline took little time to develop and I immediately felt with Lena. Lena was a good protagonist; she was a little insecure, but easy to relate to and easy to feel with in the story.

When we meet Alex, I found him to be perfectly well described - from the color of his hair (atumn leaves) and his cheekiness (winking at Lena while Regulators are in the same room) and I found him to be a great love interest.

Lauren Oliver has a great writing style and I found myself to be sucked into the story really quickly. This second novel from her hand has certainly not disappointed me, quite the contrary! And the ending.. What are you doing to me, Lauren?? I flipped the page multiple times, sure there had to be more to the story. There wasn't. I can only say: what a cliffhanger!!

My overall rating:

Because Lauren Oliver is a great author and Delirium is the second book that proves she's a five-star writer. After Before I Fall, I thought nothing could come close - but I couldn't be more wrong. I devoured this book and I honestly cannot wait til it's 2012 - because that's when Pandemonium will come out!

March wrap up

Even though the month was a lot longer than February, it went by so quickly! We've had some great weather - I look like I'm permanently wearing a white pair of sunglasses over my eyes because the rest of my face is so tanned (which tankfully doesn't show in videos) - and that resulted in a lot of books read. To be exact, that's 19 books read, making a total of 41 books read this year with 14,131 pages! Whoa! I doubled the amount of pages that I've read as per February.. I think I'm ahead of schedule to read 100 books this year, lol!
