Review: Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1) by Robin LaFevers

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)
Read: Sept 26-Oct 6, 2015
Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Pages: 550
Genres: historical fiction, mystery, romance, adventure

Synopsis from Goodreads:

"Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?

Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.

Ismae’s most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?"

My Most Memorable Summer in the History of Memorable Summers.... (part 2: August)

Hello again humans!  As promised, here's part 2 of what happened in one of the most memorable and magical summers I've ever had to this date.  If you missed part 1, I have been so kind and included a link right here: My Most Memorable Summer in the History of Memorable Summers.... (part 1: July)

This will be quite a long post.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.


The day had finally come, the day of my dreaded PIANO EXAMINATION.  I'm not going to lie, I was petrified, no.  Beyond petrified, and the solemnness and dead silence of the building did.  Not.  Help.  At all.

Review: The Break-Up Artist (Break-Up Artist #1) by Philip Siegel

The Break-Up Artist
Read: Aug. 22-Sept. 20, 2015
Rating: 3 of 5 stars
Pages: 319
Genres: realistic fiction, contemporary, romance

Synopsis from Goodreads:

"Some sixteen-year-olds babysit for extra cash.

Some work at the mall.

Becca Williamson breaks up couples.

Becca knows from experience the damage that love can do. After all, it was so-called love that turned Huxley from her childhood best friend into a social-world dictator, and love that left Becca's older sister devastated at the altar. Instead of sitting on the sidelines, Becca strikes back—for just one hundred dollars via PayPal, she will trick and manipulate any couple's relationship into smithereens. And with relationship zombies overrunning her school and treating single girls as if they're second-class citizens, business is unfortunately booming. Even Becca's best friend, Val, has resorted to outright lies to snag a boyfriend.

One night, Becca receives a mysterious offer to break up the most popular couple in school: Huxley and raw football team's star player, Steve. To succeed, she'll have to plan her most elaborate scheme to date—starting rumors, sabotaging cell phones, breaking into cars...not to mention sneaking back into Huxley's good graces. All while fending off the inappropriate feelings she may or may not be having for Val's new boyfriend.

No one said being the Break-Up Artist would be easy.

I first saw this book as a giveaway, on Goodreads, and since, I didn't win, I thought I was interested enough in this book, to go chase after it here I am, reviewing this book, because I read it...Anyhoo...

My Most Memorable Summer in the History of Memorable Summers.... (part 1: July)


I bet you're all wondering what I did over the summer, right?  RIGHT?



I'll tell you anyway, since you're still reading...

I'm splitting this up into July and August, since they were completely different.  So, I will dedicate this post to what happened in July, and the August one will be coming soon...PROMISE!


Remember that post where I fumed about my "friend's indecisiveness?  Well, if you don't, here's the post:  The day I was everythingSo after that whole fiasco happened, I ended up back in summer school.  SUMMER SCHOOL, that's right.  For the first time since I've started high school, I went to summer school, not because I failed, but because I had the crazy idea that learning an entirely new course in a month would be easy...and just to prove how awesome I am, I took the subject I hated the most: Pre-Calculus.  OH!  And did I forget to mention that I missed the first three classes?  Which is the equivalent of missing an entire unit?  OH, what fun!

Review: Jane Unwrapped by Leah and Kate Rooper

Jane Unwrapped Read: September 9-13, 2015
Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Synopsis from Goodreads:

"Some tombs should never be opened...

Fluorine uranium carbon potassium. Jane’s experiment really went wrong this time. After a fatal accident, teen scientist Jane becomes the first modern-day...mummy. Waking up in the Egyptian underworld without a heart certainly isn’t the best—especially when it means Anubis, god of embalming, has to devour her soul. Yuck. But when Jane meets the drop-dead gorgeous god, suddenly she's thinking this might not be the worst thing to happen. And then she is pushed to do the impossible—just time-travel and kill King Tut. Well, every experiment has variables which can end in disaster... Jane just wishes she could decide whether she wants to strangle Anubis or kiss him."

My Review

Peoples!  Guess what?!  This is the first book where I was required to leave a review in exchange for getting my hands on this copy!  I usually don't read books that require a review because I'm too insecure about reviewing, but this book was way too interesting to let the opportunity pass.  Thank you so much Entangled Publishing for providing me with this wonderful book.  I'm so excited to share my review with you!
