Hellish Nightmare...
If seventeen-year-old Seth Bradson were to describe his life in two words, those would be the two he’d choose. Seth prefers to cope with his crappy existence by spending his days in a drug-induced haze. But when Ali Carson steps into his life, Seth finds something he’s subconsciously been seeking—a new drug, one that consumes his mind unlike any other. 
Love.
In a moment of unforgivable weakness, Seth allows Ali to try crystal meth, his most addictive temptation. This single event begins the unraveling of both their lives and forces Seth to learn the definition of regret the hard way.

Seth isn't the type of person you would want to introduce to your parents. He’s a pill popper and a drug smoker who hangs around with other pill poppers and drug smokers. His only family is his mother and brother. His mother is an …

Title: The Boys of Summer Author: C.J. Duggan Series: Summer (Book #1) Format- ebook Publisher- C.J. Duggan Published- December 17th, 2012 Pages- 408 Source- YA Bound
It seemed only natural to nickname them the ‘Onslow Boys’. Every time they swaggered in the front door of the Onslow Hotel after a hard week’s work, their laughter was loud and genuine as they settled onto their bar stools. I peeked through the restaurant partition, a flimsy divider between my world and theirs. I couldn’t help but smile whenever I saw them, saw him ... Toby Morrison.
Quiet seventeen-year-old Tess doesn’t relish the thought of a summertime job. She wants nothing more than to forget the past haunts of high school and have fun with her best friends before the dreaded Year Twelve begins. To Tess, summer is when everything happens: riding bikes down to the lake, watching the fireworks at the Onslow Show and water bomb fights at the sweltering Sunday markets.
How did she let her friends talk her into working?

Late on a hot summer night in 1965, Charlie Bucktin, a precocious and bookish boy of thirteen, is startled by an urgent knock on the window of his sleep-out. His visitor is Jasper Jones, an outcast in the regional mining town of Corrigan. Rebellious, mixed-race and solitary, Jasper is a distant figure of danger and intrigue for Charlie. So when Jasper begs for his help, Charlie eagerly steals into the night by his side, terribly afraid but desperate to impress.

With his secret like a brick in his belly, Charlie is pushed and pulled by a town closing in on itself in fear and suspicion as he locks horns with his tempestuous mother; falls nervously in love and battles to keep a lid on his zealous…

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #15

This meme is hosted by Book Journey
Last week was just so relaxing. It was a really great week but school's starting now so I've got to get in the swing of things again. So how many books did I read last week? Let's see:


Less than I expected but I did really enjoy them. With Brotherhood being so long and this other book that I almost finished (500/800 pages) I didn't have time on those days to read that much. During that time I had a marathon of Veronica Mars episodes because of the Veronica Mars Movie which on Kickstarter is currently at 3.6 million. I also finally got faster internet and t.v. with more than five shows I can watch. I have a feeling I'm going to be watching a lot of movies. I reviewed First Visions out of this list. Silver Linings Playbook the movie is awesome by the way!

A gorgeous debut about family, friendship, first romance, and how to be true to one person you love without betraying another.

Transcend Time Blitz + Giveaway

You may remember that I read and reviewed Remembrance a while ago. When I discovered there was going to be a blog blitz and giveaway for Remembrance I jumped on this chance! Hopefully one of you reading this right now will be able to discover Lizzie's world.

Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England ... but she doesn't know it yet. Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school at the beginning of the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can't stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can't she get him out of her mind? Ev…

Stop Everything! There's Going to be a Veronica Mars Movie

Oh My God you guys! There's going to be a Veronica Mars movie. It's on Kickstarter and they almost made their 2 million goal on the first day. It'll probably happen by the time you read this. My life is just so wonderful right now. What are the odds that I would do a guest post at Forget About TV, Grab a Book (awesome blog by the way) about The Liar Society Trilogy and how I find it so similar to Veronica Mars? You must see this epic Kickstarter video. It makes me feel all warm and happy inside. Must watch ALL OF THE  EPISODES!
