IMM 3



I didn't feel like taking a picture of my copy, but I got this in the mail today from Karen @ For What It's Worth! I won it and I'm so excited. Though I still have lots of Sunshine to read so it has to wait for now.

WoW 3: Guardian of the Gate






I loved Prophecy so I'm hoping Guardian doesn't disappoint.

And for anyone that might read this and wonder, no I'm not excited for Stephanie Meyer's new book. I didn't like Twilight so I don't think I'm going to like her companion book.

A proper introduction to the blogging world!

So I kinda just realized that I never really introduced myself. I just started a random blogged and kinda appeared as a follower.

My name is Kim and I obviously love to read (thus the blog). I'm a Christian so I might end up reviewing Christian authors. I'm not sure. I've heard that Ted Dekker is good, but I haven't read any of his stuff yet.

Favorites:
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling
The Sight and Fell by David Clement-Davies
Graceling and Fire by Kristin Cashore
Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller
The Child Thief by Brom

I also play a lot of video games and I watch a lot of movies so if I'm bored then I'll throw a review of them up here as well.

Favorite movies:
Sweeney Todd
Finding Neverland

Recommendations are welcome. If you think there's a book I haven't read yet that I must read then let me know!!

Video Games: Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) and Pokemon HeartGold (DS)



I was debating on whether or not to do this review, but I figured since I've still got more than halfway to go in Sunshine that my blog might benefit more if I posted a review on something. Anything.

Let's start with Galaxy since I've actually finished that game. Overall it was a great game. I can see why some people would have it as their favorite Mario game now. First you play as Mario. Yes I said "first". Overall getting the stars are pretty easy though I did need help from a friend on a couple of them. There are some really frustrating ones like the races against Cosmic Mario and the secret star in Dreadnaught Galaxy. There was much screaming and much frustration. A big plus is after you beat the first galaxy you get introduced to comets. Some of these are really easy and some are really frustrating. Comets can change many things within a world such as giving you a time limit, racing Cosmic Mario *shudders*, or only letting you have one bit of life while doing a level so if you get hit it's all over. After you beat Bowser a new Purple Comet will appear which means that you have to get 100 purple coins scattered throughout a level in order to get a Power Star.

If you successfully get all 120 Power Stars and you beat Bowser again then you unlock Luigi. Yeah. So now you get to play as Mario's brother and do the same thing. All. Over. Again. It wouldn't be so bad except Luigi has a problem with sliding. He tends to slide. Alot. Oh dear yes. Again some stars are easy and some are much more difficult than they were with Mario. If you successfully get all 120 stars with Luigi and beat Bowser again then you get to see how many times you died as each character. When I played as Mario I got in the two-hundreds. When I played as Luigi I managed to stay in the hundreds. I am very excited for Super Mario Galaxy 2 which comes out later this year. You get to ride on Yoshi!



I grew up on Pokemon so getting one of the new remakes was a no-brainer. The change in graphics are stunning and I love how you can have a Pokemon follow you throughout the game. I caught Ho-oh so watching it follow me is hilarious. Though when I first got this game I forgot how much I suck at Pokemon. Yes. I do. Currently I'm stuck training so I can lay a beat down on the Elite Four. Yes I'm stuck. Don't give me that look it's been years since I've played this game. So yes this is an incomplete review, but I'll probably do a short follow-up after I beat it.

One thing that I really didn't like about the remake is that the Kimono girls that you battle in Ecruteak in the original games are different this time around. You constantly encounter them around Johto and you don't get to battle the 5 until later (yes you get Surf on your first visit to Ecruteak by saving one of the girls from a Team Rocket member). Another thing I didn't like is that after you get all 8 Johto badges you have to fight Ho-oh. Yes you HAVE to. You either have to fight and kill it or you fight and catch it. Otherwise you can't go to the Indigo Plateau and you can't go to Kanto. I caught it in my Master Ball just so I could keep the story going. Hopefully I will like everything else that I see in this game.

My current team:
Quagsire Level 53
Haunter Level 51 (I don't have a friend with SoulSilver so I can't get Gengar)
Ampharos Level 45
Typhlosion Level 50
Ho-oh Level 52
Pidgeotto Level 18 (I only have him in my team for Fly)

I recommend these games for anyone whether they are newbies to each series, or veterans.

WoW: 2



Summary: In the ice wilds of the fabled north, the lords of the moving mountains have always been the polar bears. Kings of the wild, the white bears have ruled since the beginning of time, believing that they were hurled to earth from the heavens. There is only one creature they fear—man.

The polar bears are also haunted by a prophecy, that one day the ice will suddenly cry out and die, causing the fish to float and the seals to flee. Then, as a result, one will be born among them—a white cub with one black paw who can hear the very beating of the polar heart. It is he who will lead his kind, and the whole world, to safety.


And I'm waiting. And waiting. And waiting. Something tells me that this book is worth waiting on. The last book I read by David (The Telling Pool) was a bit of a miss. I think since he's writing as animals again he can pick it up.

Review for Willow from For What It's Worth

So Karen really likes this book and it sounds exciting. She wants people to post blogs about it to spread the word and I'm more than happy to oblige so I've just copied her review and put it on here. Keep in mind this isn't my review and I have yet to read the book myself yet.

http://www.fwiwreviews.net/2010/03/review-willow-by-julia-hoban.html

Seven months ago, on a rainy March night, sixteen-year- old Willow’s parents drank too much wine and asked her to drive them home. They never made it—Willow lost control of the car and her parents died in the accident. Now she has left behind her old home, friends, and school, and blocks the pain by secretly cutting herself. But when Willow meets Guy, a boy as sensitive and complicated as she is, she begins an intense, life-changing relationship that turns her world upside down.
YA Fiction


REVIEW:
I have gone over this review in my head so many times. Willow is one of my all time favorite books and I want my review to express all the things I feel about it but that’s impossible. So here’s my attempt at doing this book justice.
After Willow’s parents (anthropology and archeology professors) die in a tragic car accident in which Willow was driving, she begins cutting herself as a way to deal with the pain. It’s a way to punish herself and for her to have control of the overwhelming emotions engulfing her. She’s now living with David (her brother) and his wife and baby. David won’t discuss their parents or the accident that left him as her guardian and she is too aware of the pressure her being there is putting on this young family.
School is no better. She knows everyone is watching her, the girl who killed her parents, and she avoids people at all costs to avoid the questions that will surely follow. Until one day when she meets Guy while working in the University library. He needs help finding Tristes Tropiques – her father’s favorite anthropology book. He makes her uncomfortable…. he makes her feel.

“Their gazes catch and for a moment she feels herself respond the way any normal girl would if she were standing next to a cute guy. She’s a little flustered, a little embarrassed, and a little attracted too. Willow steps away from him, as far as she possibly can. She can’t deal with anything like this right now”

Guy finds out about her secret and at first he is a reluctant hero. Not sure exactly what to do with this knowledge, but feeling responsible he reaches out to her. He really is the perfect “guy”. He tries to understand her pain but he also challenges her, protects her, accepts her and he simply loves her.
Through Guy’s love Willow is able to begin to heal herself and her relationship with her brother. It’s not an easy road but bit by bit she’s at least willing to take the chance.
Julia writes Willow’s story in third person (present tense) narrative and because of this choice we are able to feel Willow’s despair watching David struggle with his new responsibilities, feel her desperation to cut to escape the pain and also to feel the hope when Guy enters her life, helping her to take those first tentative steps to healing.
If you are shying away from reading Willow because of the subject matter – don’t. Almost everyone has experienced a sense of isolation or embarrassment in high school and developed coping mechanisms to deal with it. While this story is about a particular set of circumstances, the death of Willow’s parents - her cutting, it’s really about how we all deal with the pain in our lives. It could have just as easily been about overeating, anorexia, or bullying. It is ultimately a book about love and hope, not cutting. I found myself smiling many times and cheering Willow on.
It’s also about romance. As Willow and Guy bond over their shared love of books, she is able to open up to him and to others because of him. They have a tender, powerful and redemptive relationship. Here’s a quote from later in the book and you can see that it’s quite different than the one I chose earlier. Here Willow is speaking to Guy: "But I like to talk to you. Because I can ask you anything, tell you anything, and no matter what I say to you, I know it will be alright” So beautiful!
I recently read a quote by author Denise Jaden (Losing Faith) “Sometimes the power of love doesn’t just change us, it changes our perception and our entire world” and it is so true of this relationship.
Willow is not always an easy read, but I promise you it is uplifting and well worth the effort.

This is a stunning novel by Julia Hoban and I can’t wait to see what she writes next.

Rating: 5 out 4. I know that’s not possible but it’s my blog!

Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
For Keeps by Natasha Friend
Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson
Anxious Hearts by Tucker Shaw
Boys, Bears, and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots by Abby McDonald

The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan

4 1/2 out of 5

Summary: Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She’s content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry’s mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry. And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry’s generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother’s past in order to save herself and the one she loves. (Goodreads)

Review: So I was concerned that this book wouldn't be enjoyable because of all the unanswered questions in Fores of Hands and Teeth. You have a new main character and a lot of mystery surrounding her. I liked Gabry way more than Mary. I don't even really know why I didn't like Mary very much. She just seemed really whiny and annoying. I liked the guys a lot more in this book too, but I won't go into that.

I loved that they incorporated stuff from book 1 such as old characters and the roman numerals. Instead of the numbers just being weird markings the characters came across they became an actual path that the characters had to decipher and get through. I thought that the back story involving Elias was going to be predictable, but it really wasn't. Overall I'm quite excited for the third book.

Waiting on Wednesday: Fallout



This is my first Waiting on Wednesday and I picked Fallout by Ellen Hopkins. It's the last book in the Crank trilogy (Starting with Crank and following with Glass). The stories follow Kristina and how she goes to visit her father and gets turned onto drugs. These books are fantastic and Ellen's way of writing is so unique. She gets under fire a lot for writing about hard topics like this, but they need to be addressed. I very much encourage people to pick up all of her books and I'm super excited for Fallout.

Wicked: Witch and Curse by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie


2 1/2 out of 5

Gosh it took me so long to finish this book. First off the characters are just pathetic. Jer knows that he is in a family of dark warlocks, and yet he's shocked to find that his brother and father kill people. What?!? Alright and the girls are just slow. I got sick of reading about them after chapter 1.

It's an interesting premise though. Dark witches vs even darker warlocks. It's quite different from the good vs bad that I'm used to reading even though Holly's coven is meant to represent the "good". It's also interesting that in this big feud between the Cahors and the Deveraux, the magic wielders in the Cahor's coven are mostly female and the magic wielders in the Deveraux's coven are mostly male. I wonder if that will come up later.

Apparently the cats are important to the story. I mean since they're all named after goddesses I would hope so. Though you don't really get that in the story. They're just there and they appear to be interacting with Holly in a magical way, but it's never really clear what their importance is.

Overall it's not that good. This "captivating series" failed to captivate me. I might finish reading the books only to see what happens. I liked Curse more than Witch so maybe it will only go up from here.

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

4 1/2 out of 5

I heard from so many people that this book was really good, and I live in South Carolina so I really wanted to read it. BC did not disappoint. It's told in the point of view of Ethan and he is a great character. You can see how he changes from being just another member of Gatlin to being a caring individual. His best friend, Link, is also great too. I instantly loved Link just for his name. I'm a huge RPG nerd and I grew up on the Zelda games so having his name be Link was a pretty big plus for me. Ethan is living a pretty normal life except that his mom died a year ago in an accident, his nanny is into voodoo, and his dad has become a writing recluse since the accident. At school he makes okay grades, he's attractive and popular, and he's a great shot in basketball.

Enter Lena. For a while when she shows up the other people of Gatlin just refer to her as "Macon Ravenwood's niece". Macon being the weird old shut in of the town. She has a secret, and now Ethan does too. They can speak to each other telepathically. And when Lena is angered or frightened she can break stuff and control the weather. Why? She's a Caster. A Natural Caster. I hope you find out more than this in the next book because from what I gather she has powerful, untapped power but no one really knows what that power is. Her parents died when she was a child (no this isn't a spoiler) so she and Ethan click on that. Plus Ethan just cares about her.

There is a lot of romance, but it isn't like most romances. What I did like is both of these kids are 15 and when I was 15 everybody had boyfriends/girlfriends and everybody says "I love you" within the first week of the relationship. Don't get me wrong I've been in love too, but I think a week is way too soon to start saying it. Especially if your past relationships have been pretty much the same way and ended badly. That's what I really liked about Lena and Ethan's relationship. They were the shy couple. Everyone knew they loved each other so they knew they didn't have to say it. Fear not though they do say it at the end after months of their relationship. What I didn't like was they were holding hands and kissing between classes at school and acting all boyfriend/girlfriend-ish, but they still weren't sure if they were boyfriend/girlfriend. It wasn't until Link called Lena Ethan's girlfriend that they finally started using the title. That wasn't a really big deal though, but it was still kind of annoying to me.

The story was so good. You get introduced to the world of Casting and to some of Lena's family. She and Ethan have to figure out the importance of this mysterious locket that Uncle Mason and Amma seem to hate. As well as how to change Lena's birthday so she can choose between being a Light Caster or a Dark Caster. Overall this was a great book with really solid twists.

Fire by Kristin Cashore


I just have to say that Graceling set a bar for Young Adult books in my eyes. That book was so amazing with the story and the characters that I knew that Fire would have competition, even though they are written by the same author. Let me just tell you that it's a tie. I can't possibly choose between them.

Fire is a human monster. Her hair is the color of fire and her monster blood is desired by other monsters that encounter her. Along with monsters trying to kill her she also has to deal with humans falling in love with her constantly because of her extreme beauty. Being a monster makes her quite different from humans, including her ability to read/control people's minds. She's beautiful and she can control people's minds. Does anyone else think she might be an annoying main character? That's what I thought at first glance. I was going to be so pissed if I read a book about every guy falling in love with this one chick all la-di-da with no action or anything. Then I remembered how amazing of a story Graceling was and I chilled out a bit. I knew someone that wrote Graceling couldn't possibly write some sloppy seconds book. Fire is a girl that can fight and hold her own in the world. She proves this time and time again throughout the story.

Now let me get to the story. Fire and her friend Archer are living a semi-peaceful life in the not-so-peaceful area of the Dells. After a visit to Queen Roen's place, Fire encounters Brigan who doesn't fall on his knees for her. In fact he sort of hates her and threatens her. After this awkward meeting and Fire is back home guess who shows up to take her to King's City? Yup, bad boy Brigan. Fire thinks that Brigan is bad now? Wait until she meets his brother Garan. Oh and add King Nash to the mix who constantly proposes to Fire, as well as their sister Clara who is pretty amazing much like Fire. Well let's just say that Fire is going to have a bit of a time here in King's City. She learns more about the King and his family than she ever thought possible, and she even learned about her family as well. What made this book so great is how troubled the good guys are. There is rape, assassinations, and betrayal all around Fire and she's caught in the middle of it. While all of this is going on she also has to learn that her power is nothing like her father's, Cansrel, who used his for evil. She has more love for people that Cansrel ever had for anyone. She has to confront her past as well as some unresolved issues with her dear friend Archer.

The romance in this book is insane too. At first I didn't think that a real romance could form and that it would just be Fire sleeping with different people. Then she realizes who she really loves and who can't get any further with her than sex. By the end of the book I was happy with her choice though I had sympathy for the one who got left out.

This book's action took place mostly in castles whereas Graceling took place in the wilderness, and while the setting has obviously differed the story is still fantastic. I give this book 5/5.

I have a signed, finished copy of Wake (in paperback) and a load of swag up for grabs, all you have to do is enter the contest!


For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people’s dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie’s seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.

She can’t tell anybody about what she does – they’d never believe her, or worse, they’d think she’s a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn’t want and can’t control.

Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else’s twisted psyche. She is a participant…
