Review: Beauty and the Beast

beauty

IMDB Summary:   

An adaptation of the Disney fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love.

 

 

My Review:

First, I love the original Beauty and the Beast like a lot of people. I knew this was going to be pretty similar to that, but I loved this one because while it had all the same elements, it also answered a lot of plot hole questions! There were things in the original that I didn’t have answers to and now I do!

Loved the opening scene! But anything that has that Marie Antoinette vibe, gets me all kinds of excited! Huge fist pump!

The classic songs were intertwined with new songs, which I actually liked! Luke Evans and Josh Gad were awesome as Gaston and Lefou. Emma made the perfect Belle and swoon alert for Dan Stevens! Loved all the side characters! Heck, I loved this entire movie!

Some secrets are best kept hidden…

Anastasia Phoenix has always been the odd girl out, whether moving from city to international city with her scientist parents or being the black belt who speaks four languages.

And most definitely as the orphan whose sister is missing, presumed dead.

She’s the only one who believes Keira is still alive, and when new evidence surfaces, Anastasia sets out to follow the trail—and lands in the middle of a massive conspiracy. Now she isn’t sure who she can trust. At her side is Marcus, the bad boy with a sexy accent who’s as secretive as she is. He may have followed her to Rome to help, but something about him seems too good to be true.

Nothing is as it appears, and when everything she’s ever known is revealed to be a lie, Anastasia has to believe in one impossibility.

She will find her sister.


Diana Rodriguez Wallach is not the child of super spies, as far as she knows. But she is an avid traveler, and every scene in her books comes from a place she has lived or visited—from her senior year apartment in Boston, MA to the hotel where she stayed in Cortona, Italy. In addition to the Anastasia Phoenix series, Diana is also the author of the award-winning Amor and Summer Secrets series; the Mirror, Mirror short story collection; and essays in both Dear Bully: 70 Authors Tell Their Stories and Latina Authors and Their Muses. She is an advisory board member for the Philly Spells Writing Center, and is a Creative Writing Instructor for Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Talented Youth. She holds a B.S. in Journalism from Boston University, and currently lives in Philadelphia with her husband and two kids. But of course, this all could be a masterly crafted piece of disinformation…

Review: Unwind

Title: Unwind

Author: Neil Shusterman

Date of Publication: November 6th, 2017

Unwind.jpg

Goodreads Summary:

Connor, Risa, and Lev are running for their lives.

The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child “unwound,” whereby all of the child’s organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn’t technically end. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state, is not enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape and to survive.

My Review:

Right off the bat this book is action packed! Connor discovers his parents are going to have him unwound, and he runs away. There are three main perspectives in this book which are Connor, Risa, and Lev, but there are others woven in that connects very well to the plot.

This book is one of the creepiest dystopian books I have ever read. Maybe it is because of the fact that they harvest organs from children just makes it a hundred times worse.

I actually loved all the characters. I wanted to hate Lev at first, but his thoughts were just so good and interesting. Then the fact that he was born to pretty much sacrifice himself and being brainwashed from an early age had me feel bad for the little guy.

I had never heard of this series before for some reason, so I was pleasantly surprised by how good and scary this world was.

Review: The Suffering Tree

Title: The Suffering Tree

Author: Elle Cosimano

Date of Publication: June 13th, 2017

suffer

Goodreads Summary:

“It’s dark magic brings him back.”

Tori Burns and her family left D.C. for claustrophobic Chaptico, Maryland, after suddenly inheriting a house under mysterious circumstances. That inheritance puts her at odds with the entire town, especially Jesse Slaughter and his family—it’s their generations-old land the Burns have “stolen.” But none of that seems to matter after Tori witnesses a young man claw his way out of a grave under the gnarled oak in her new backyard.

Nathaniel Bishop may not understand what brought him back, but it’s clear to Tori that he hates the Slaughters for what they did to him centuries ago. Wary yet drawn to him by a shared sense of loss, she gives him shelter. But in the wake of his arrival comes a string of troubling events—including the disappearance of Jesse Slaughter’s cousin—that seem to point back to Nathaniel.

As Tori digs for the truth—and slowly begins to fall for Nathaniel—she uncovers something much darker in the tangled branches of the Slaughter family tree. In order to break the centuries-old curse that binds Nathaniel there and discover the true nature of her inheritance, Tori must unravel the Slaughter family’s oldest and most guarded secrets. But the Slaughters want to keep them buried… at any cost.

My Review:

Tori’s family inherited a piece of land and a house. It came in just the nick of time. Tori’s Dad passed away, and after that she became different. She began cutting herself and not wanting to do the things she used to. The Slaughter family is not happy about this whole situation; they claim the house and property should have been theirs.

One night, some of her blood is spilled by an old tree, and a boy rises out of the ground. His name is Nathaniel Bishop, and he claims to be from a whole different era. Things get worse when someone is trying to keep a truth from coming out; a truth that could change everything.

This book was interesting and has one of my favorite covers I have seen so far this year. But… A big buttttttttttt… this book could have been shorter with less detail filler. Tori’s perspective should have been the one in first person instead of Nathaniel’s flashbacks. It made the book feel odd. There were also some flashbacks of Emmeline which were also in first person for some reason.

I really liked Nathaniel and felt as if he kept getting the turd end of the stick. He had so much crap happen to him in the past, and then even more suffering when he came out of the ground. Then Tori kept telling him to go to the barn like some form of dog.

I did like Tori for the mot part, and how she stood up for herself like she did with Jesse. There were times when she got on my nerves and should have been helping Nathaniel more. Instead of just leaving him to sit in the barn for days.

Overall, the book was an interesting read and a little frustrating but still worth the read.

Writing a book is hard enough. Everyone that told me writing a book was the easy part is crazy! The stuff that comes after writing a book is even more stressful, but in the end it is all worth it! Thanks for your support!

Review: The Traitor’s Kiss

Title: The Traitor’s Kiss

Author: Erin Beaty

Date of Publication: May 9th, 2017

traitor

Goodreads Summary:

An obstinate girl who will not be married.
A soldier desperate to prove himself.
A kingdom on the brink of war.

With a sharp tongue and an unruly temper, Sage Fowler is not what they’d call a lady―which is perfectly fine with her. Deemed unfit for marriage, Sage is apprenticed to a matchmaker and tasked with wrangling other young ladies to be married off for political alliances. She spies on the girls―and on the soldiers escorting them.

As the girls’ military escort senses a political uprising, Sage is recruited by a handsome soldier to infiltrate the enemy ranks. The more she discovers as a spy, the less certain she becomes about whom to trust―and Sage becomes caught in a dangerous balancing act that will determine the fate of her kingdom.

My Review:

This was definitely one of my most anticipated reads this year, and now I just feel lost! The cover while stunning, what was inside did not hold a candle up to it.

The beginning started off awesome. The whole matchmaker business in the beginning reminded me of Mulan, where she just makes a disaster of things, so that got me all kinds of thrilled.

Sage then goes to apologize to the matchmaker and is offered to become her assistant, which she takes. Things then get all kinds of good. Then we flip to Quinn’s POV, and I started to get bored. There was a lot of military strategy stuff going on that I did not care about.

Ash, who works with the military, enters the picture to get some info on things and then runs into Sage, where he is requested to get more info. So, I was seriously bored.

Things pick up halfway, and I had already figured out what was going on, but it was still entertaining. The romance was sweet, but it still felt underdeveloped, because I didn’t see any real conversations going on. I will see I did like Sage’s training scene!

Overall it was still an okay read that lands in the mediocre range for me, but I still would read the next book!
