Review: The Savvy Series

Ooookay, so!  I read the first book a really, really long time ago.....and the second one...also a really long time ago....and back then....I didn't really keep track of when I started or finished books, or what I thought of!

Bah.....let's just get on with this....

Savvy (Savvy, #1)Read: sometime in 2013
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Pages: 342

Random gibberish....

Wow...5 stars?!  I guess I was easily impressed back in 2013, understandably, though.  I mean.....back then....I didn't read as many books as I have, okay!

So, this family is......special.  When a member of this family turns 13, they gain a special ability.  Woo!  This novel follows Mibs, a girl who just got her special ability-savvy-and, it's been so long, I can't even remember what her savvy remember she found this really nice guy....her age, of course.   And they were a cute couple.  Aaaanyways.  Mooooving on.

Hey peoples!

Like most other kids in grade eleven, in high school, school's ending soon!  I'm so incredibly happy!

(read: I have exams.  I am so completely stressed out of my mind, and I neeeeed more sleep!  Gahhh! I have succumbed and disgraced myself to singing songs in different voices in different pitches, I'm sure I'm sound so horrendously bad, people would laugh their eyebrows off!)


This will be a ranting post, you've been warned....

Review: Macbeth 1989 by William Shakespeare

Macbeth by William Shakespeare

Read: May 9-June 6, 2016
Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Pages: 258
Genres: classics, Shakespeare

Shakespeare! FUN.

My English class is just finishing up the unit on Macbeth, and I have to say....Macbeth.....very well done!

Ah, Macbeth....

The bloody play....

When my teacher told me it'd be bloody...I wasn't expecting this! So much...bloodiness...and...unnecessary killing....

For those of you who don't know what Macbeth is about, Macbeth is a soldier to the king, Duncan.  One day, he comes upon three witches who call him three different things, one of them being king.  

Macbeth foolishly decides to believe the witches and does everything in his power to get on the throne.  Lots of stabbing!  Lots of blood!  Lots of...blood.

Review: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

Liars, Inc.

Read: May 5-13, 2016
Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Pages: 362
Genres: realistic fiction, mystery, romance, thriller, contemporary

Blurb from Goodreads:

"Max Cantrell has never been a big fan of the truth, so when the opportunity arises to sell forged permission slips and cover stories to his classmates, it sounds like a good way to make a little money and liven up a boring senior year. With the help of his friends Preston and Parvati, Max starts Liars, Inc. Suddenly everybody needs something and the cash starts pouring in. Who knew lying could be so lucrative?

When Preston wants his own cover story to go visit a girl he met online, Max doesn’t think twice about hooking him up. Until Preston never comes home. Then the evidence starts to pile up—terrifying clues that lead the cops to Preston’s body. Terrifying clues that point to Max as the murderer.
Can Max find the real killer before he goes to prison for a crime he didn’t commit? In a story that Kirkus Reviews called "Captivating to the very end," Paula Stokes starts with one single white lie and weaves a twisted tale that will have readers guessing until the explosive final chapters."

The blurb is what initially attracted me to this book. The idea of selling lies as a business venture? Cool!

And then you sell a lie to a friend to go meet this girl online...and he goes missing?
Uh oh!
