Stephenie Meyer's Blunders: Plot Holes of Twilight

I've only read and seen the movies of the Twilight Saga up until Breaking Dawn.  I just can't bring myself to start that giant paperweight of a book!  Anyway, Crystal and have been talking a ton about The Host lately, so Twilight and its stupidity came up.

I'll post some of the texts we sent because honestly they're pretty funny.

1. How does a vampire actually impregnate someone?

Vampires are undead. They have no pulse, yet they can produce sperm? Um, ok. If they glitter in the sun, then I guess they can make sperm too. Whatever Stephenie Meyer says goes.

2. What happens when Bella's time of the month comes?

I guess it isn't a very glamorous subject, but what happens when Bella gets her period? How come Edward and his family don't "vamp out?" Even humans can smell the distinct scent period blood, though it sure isn't the most pleasant.

3. "I was born to be a vampire." -Bella Swan

So, Bella was born to die? She's not going to do anything significant with her life, all for love? This shows how poorly Bella regards herself. By saying this, she denies herself her potential possibly revealing that she doesn't have enough confidence to do something important. What's that teaching the already self conscious teenage population? That it's okay to be weak? I need a strong heroine in my books and more importantly in my life to look up to.

4. Bella falls apart after Edward leaves in New Moon.

Stephenie, what are you doing to us women??? Why did you portray Bella so distraught, so ruined to the point where she wanted to commit suicide once her man left? New Moon shows women completely inferior and independent upon men. Women have worked so hard for us to gain rights, so why has Stephenie Meyer showed us in this light?

5. Pedophiles and more pedophiles!

Edward being really old but looking 17 isn't nearly as terrible as Jacob and the newborn, but don't you think the age difference between Edward and Bella is a little weird? Regardless, Jacob imprinting with Renesmee, the newly born vampire child, is straight up creepy! Eww.

Did you like Twilight? Are you someone who loves to hate it?

Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters Trailer

The trailer can only be seen within the previews of The Host, so that's a little motivation to go see a movie that received a 12% on Rotten Tomatoes.  But in all honestly, I enjoyed The Host and a review will be up next week.

So obviously someone recorded this while in the theater  thus explaining the shaky hand and annoying girls swooning over Logan Lerman, but it's better than nothing.  Watch it before YouTube takes it down for copyright infringement.

Divergent by Veronica Roth Movie Art!

Look at this cool art I found someone reposted on Twitter!  This was done by a fan, who it was I have no idea but I wish I could give credit to the talented person who created this piece!  It pictures the fairly newly selected cast, which I am very excited about.  I have a good feeling about this Theo James guy, even though I pictured Max Irons as Four as I was reading it.  After all, Veronica herself wanted him to get the role :)

How excited for the movie are you?  Feelings about the cast?

Blog Tour Book Blast: Blood Awakening by Jamie Manning

Jamie Manning

FacebookTwitter † Pinterest
My name is Jamie and I am a writer.

I've always wanted to be a writer (like most writers, I'm sure) but not until the last few
years have I taken it seriously (after I read a tiny, unknown book called Twilight). I was
always told growing up that I had to get a job and take care of myself, so I pushed my
dream of writing a book to the back of my mind and entered the workforce. Fast-forward
many, many years and here I am, trying to make a go at it.

I stumbled across Blogger in 2010 and my world of writing exploded. I have met (via the
web) so many amazing writers and industry professionals and book bloggers that have
passed on their wisdom and experience and successes and failures. So many, in fact,
that I have no excuse to sit down and write out the stories living in my head. Which is
what I'm now attempting to do.

I enjoy reading more than most other things (well, except maybe for writing. And TV. No
way am I giving up my TV) . I attempt to write YA (paranormal and dystopian) and I love

Blood Born, book one in The Blood Prophecy trilogy, was released by Pendrell Publishing April 24, 2012. Book two, Blood
Awakening, is coming April 2013.

Book into Movie Casting News (AGAIN!!!): Divergent by Veronica Roth

Guess who else has signed on to Divergent by Veronica Roth's film adaptation?  None other than the awesome...

She will be portraying Jeanie Matthews, the Erudite leader, come April.  

My thoughts: Wow, Veronica Roth has been very fortunate with this cast!  I am a fan of Kate Winslet and am excited that she will be featured in the movie, even if she's not a lead.

Book into Movie Casting News:The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

The much anticipated announcement for who is playing Hazel in The Fault in Our Stars by John Green has come...

How exciting!  She will do a great job, and boy is she going to be busy!! After all  she just got cast as Tris in Divergent.

Any ideas for who will play Augustus?

Happy Book Birthday!

Congrats Mrs. Clare, but this is still a bittersweet day.  It is the end of the Infernal Devices.

I must get around to reading Clockwork Prince (quel horreur!), but I have off next week so hopefully I will find time to read these.

Look at this thing Cassandra is touring in!!!

Have you read the Infernal Devices?  Are you sad to see the end?

Book into Movie Casting News: Divergent by Veronica Roth

Exciting news coming at you allatonce.  See what I did there?  I give credit to John Green for that one.

What you really want to hear is who the heck is playing who in Divergent.  So, here we go...

Christina= Zoe Kravitz

Courtney = Maggie Q

My thoughts: I'm really excited about this casting! I liked Shailene in The Descendants a lot.  Though I wanted Max Irons to play Four, I like Theo Jame's look.  That may because he looks similar to Max, but nonetheless they fit Four's description well.  I just think it's odd that a more well known actor wasn't chosen for Four.  And also, Theo is 28.  I find that strange, but he looks amazing for being that old.  He can pull off an older teen for sure.  Plus, I like that Zoe is doing her own thing.  I've only seen her in It's Kind of a Funny Story when she had a tiny role, so I'm anxious to see how she does.

Review: The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux

Le fantôme de l'OpéraLe fantôme de l'Opéra by Gaston Leroux

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I suppose I will do this review in English though I read it in French.  Don't give me too much credit, I read the adapted version for intermediate French students.  As I call it, the stupid people's version.  No offense intended.  Je me moque.

Summary: A disturbingly gifted child, horribly disfigured from birth, flees into a cruel world where he will learn to survive at any cost.
Torn between good and evil, driven to seek power as a substitute for the love he fears he can never know, Erik begins a dark journey that will take him acros the face of Europe, from a gypsy cage to the treacherous court of Persia, and ultimately to the cellars of the Paris Opera House, where he must finally learn the true meaning of love.
Because it can get confusing-
  • Raoul=Vicomte (de Chagny)
  • Erik=phantom
  • Daroga=Persian
Alright, Christine is kinda stupid to believe that her father had sent the Angel of Music.  I guess the same can be said for anything else a person can blindly have faith in.  Personally, I don't think it is pragmatic to do so.  Christine's belief in the Angel of Music lead Erik to take advantage of her.  I have nothing to say about her except that she is super naive and the damsel in distress.  As for Raoul, biggest cry baby ever.    Literally, it seemed as though he were crying every other chapter.  Erik is the only character with some depth, having a reason for wreaking havoc.  In addition, he is extremely cunning.  He is definitely my favorite character because both Christine and Raoul played stereotypes, the helpless girl and the rich guy who is equally as useless.  He reminds me of Scott from Keeping Up with the Kardashians which is probably the lowest insult a person can be given .  Honestly, I am not of fan of this love triangle.  Pas du tout!  A good love triangle makes you torn between the bases as if you were the character at the top.  Even though I liked Erik, he is still violent and demanding, so I didn't want him to end up with Christine either.

Maybe I just was tired of learning French grammar, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading this.  I was impressed by the suspense and mystery, especially considering the time period in which it was written.  I imagine this was considered a horror story, actually frightening the then audience.  This truly is a beautiful story about hardship, love, suspense,... Tolerate the characters and you will enjoy it.

Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes, I'm thinking about reading the real version.  Whether I'll read it in English or French I'm not sure about.

Oh, thank goodness!

Katy Perry is not getting a book deal.  It was all just a rumor!  What has the world come to when the cast of Jersey Shore has book deals and they are actually on the NYT bestseller list?  Sometimes, I just don't understand America.  I see why other countries aren't always too fond of us.

These are the books that are enlightening us?

Cover Reveal + EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW: The Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski

Note: USA Today had released the cover earlier this week before this cover reveal by ATomR was scheduled, basically making this post valueless.  However, Ms. Redmerski has given us an exclusive preview into the book to make up for this blunder.  Works for me!  Can't wait until release day!  The Edge of Never is absolutely fantastic!

Author: J.A. Redmerski
Publisher: Hachette Book Group
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age Group: New Adult
Expected release date: November 5, 2013
Pre-order on Amazon |Pre-order on iTunes

He was taking the long road. She was taking the road to nowhere. It just so happened that they led to the same place…
Five months ago, Camryn and Andrew, both dealing with personal hardships, met on a Greyhound bus. They fell in love and proved that when two people are meant to be together, fate will find a way to make it happen.
Now, in the highly anticipated sequel to THE EDGE OF NEVER, Camryn and Andrew are pursuing their love for music and living life to the fullest as they always swore to do. But when tragedy befalls them, their relationship is put to the ultimate test.
As Camryn tries to numb her pain, Andrew makes a bold decision: To get their life back on track, they’ll set out on another cross-country road trip. Together they find excitement, passion, adventure—and challenges they never could have anticipated.
Sexy. Daring. Dangerous. THE EDGE OF ALWAYS takes you on a ride you won’t forget .

Camryn shrieks and I start laughing as we dash away from the cows and toward the car.
“Awww, shiiiit!” I yell when I step in a huge pile of it.
Camryn cackles with laughter and we both practically stumble the rest of the way through the field, me trying to scrape the shit off the bottom of my shoe while running at the same time and Camryn’s flip-flops getting caught on the ground trying to keep up with her feet.
“I can’t believe that just happened!” Camryn laughs as we finally make it back to the car. She arches her body over forward and props her hands on her knees, trying to catch her breath.
I’m out of breath, too, but I still relentlessly scrape the bottom of my shoe on the asphalt. “Dammit!” I say, rubbing my foot back and forth.
Camryn jumps up on the hood of the car, letting her legs hang over the front. “Can we finally say that we did it?” she asks with laughter in her voice.
I stand still finally and catch my breath. I look at her, at how beautiful and bright that smile of hers is and I say, “Yeah, babe, I think we can safely mark it off our list.”
“Good!” she says.
Then she points behind me. “Do it on the grass,” she says with one side of her mouth pinched into a hard line. “You’re just spreading it around doing it like that.”
I hop over into the grass and start rubbing my foot back and forth again. “Since when did you become an expert on shit?”
“Better watch your mouth,” she warns, getting into the driver’s seat.
“What are you going to do?” I taunt her.
She starts the Chevelle and revs the engine a few times pressing on the gas. There’s a cruel gleam in her eyes. She props her left arm across the top of the open window and next thing I know she’s driving slowly past me.
I give her the warning eye, but her grin just gets bigger.
“I know you won’t leave me here!” I shout as she goes past me.
Surely she wouldn’t….
She gets farther away and at first I call her bluff and just stand here, watching her get smaller and smaller…
Finally, I take off running after the car.

About the Author

Review: Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti

Something Like FateSomething Like Fate by Susane Colasanti

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Summary: Lani and Erin are bonded for life. One thing that connects them is their fascination of fate. Lani wonders how much of our lives has already been decided and how much we can actually influence. Since the Unknown can unexpectedly change our lives forever, how much can we really control?

From the minute Lani meets Jason, she can't deny the intense connection they share. It feels like she's known him forever. She's not sure if he feels it, too. But it doesn't matter. Because Jason is Erin's boyfriend. Lani is determined to ignore her feelings for Jason, no matter how powerful they are, rather than risk hurting her best friend.

How long can Lani keep running from the boy who might be her destiny?

Characters: I really connected with Lani, her being very eco-conscious. She just seemed like a very sweet, caring girl that I could definitely see myself being friends with. I was a little disappointed with her that she didn't stick up for herself. Yeah, I guess that would go against girl code but sometimes you have to stand by what's important. But really, Erin was a total jerk so she had it coming. That sounds bad, but I'm not advocating stealing boyfriends. I'm just saying karma's real, so be careful!

Plot: Super predictable, but just the kind of story I love. I enjoyed seeing Lani and Jason get close and the drama that ensured once everyone found out that he cheated on Erin and Lani stabbed Erin in the back. Though I must say, this book made me hate girls. So it would probably feel pretty crummy to have your supposed best friend steal your boyfriend, but going around and spreading rumors and turning the school against her is downright low!

Would I recommend it to a friend? This one's a nice, easy read. It's a cute one that will surely put a smile to your lips:)

Cover Reveal: Demon Derby by Carrie Harris

Author: Carrie Harris
Publisher: Random House
Genre: Paranormal
Age Group: Young Adult
Expected release: March 2014

Casey kicked cancer’s ass. Now a demon wants to kick hers...

Casey hates being known as the girl who survived cancer. She wants people to treat her like her old self, fearless and strong. And after a creepy encounter with a crazy guy in an alley, Casey is all about reclaiming her power.

So when she has a chance to try out for the Apocalypsies roller derby team, she jumps on it. Being a derby girl would prove that she doesn't need anybody’s pity. It doesn't hurt that Michael, the team manager, is almost unnaturally hot. Which makes sense when Casey finds out that he’s not even human.

Michael’s got a secret: he trains demon hunters. That crazy guy in the alley? Demon. And the fact that Casey went head to head with evil and lived makes her a threat to demonkind. Casey thought she’d already fought and won the battle of her lifetime. But it’s only beginning...
From Carrie Harris, author of Bad Taste in Boys and Bad Hair Day, comes a knockout new read for anyone facing their own demons—inside and out.

About the Author

Carrie Harris is the author of BAD TASTE IN BOYS and BAD HAIR DAY. Her husband is a cancer survivor and a ninja doctor, and her three kids are already in training to fight evil someday. She collects monster-themed clothing, is physically incapable of being serious for more than five minutes at a time, and isn't a derby girl…yet.

I'm Looking for the Impossible

I did a post a while back on my book boyfriends, my literary crushes so this post may be getting a little personal.
Well, at least I'm putting it out there...

So, I think I'm going to be forever alone because of my book boyfriends.

It's not that I'm awkward; I guess it's that I'm just not interested.  There's nobody who is sweet, kind, good looking, has an accent, and is secretly some supernatural being around here.  Well I know that everyone has an American around here, but I can't be sure about the supernatural thing. Basically, I'm looking for a boy that only exists in YA novels so I've been avoiding the high school sweetheart thing.

But what Stephanie Perkins told me seems like good advice for the real world.  Don't go looking for the rich, good looking, amazingly built person who seems absolutely flawless, because that perfect somebody only exists in your head.  Don't ask if you could live with that person.  Ask if you could live without him or her. Fate, chance, luck, whatever you want to call it, you'll find your him or her :)

Review: Undone by Elizabeth Norris

Undone (Unraveling, #1.5)Undone (an Unraveling novella) by Elizabeth Norris

Check out my review of Unraveling!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Before the accident. Before their universes collided. Before they fell in love.Riveting and romantic, Undone: An Unraveling Novella contains three short stories set in the world of Unraveling, the first book in the gripping sci-fi duology by Elizabeth Norris.Before Ben Michaels saved Janelle Tenner’s life, Janelle saved Ben when he stumbled through an interuniverse portal into a completely new world. That day, he fell in love with the girl of his dreams. And he never forgot her.Through three stories told from Ben’s point of view, learn how Ben and his friends discovered their ability to travel between worlds, how Ben first met Janelle, and how he pined for her for years before he actually got the chance to meet her, save her life, and capture her heart. And find out what happens to Ben between the cliff-hanger conclusion to Unraveling and the beginning of its heart-stopping sequel, Unbreakable.
Changing the format a bit to accommodate for the length of this book...

Honestly, I don't care too much for the first two stories.  I love Ben, but he sounded like a smitten teenager.  Well he is a teenager  can't deny that but he sounded kind of crazy, being in love with a girl he had never spoken to before.  With Ben, it was more than an infatuation   His feelings weren't a crush.  It's really sweet that Janelle saved him when they were younger, but if you've never interacted with someone, how can you love them or expect them to love you?  Some might even call his watching her a teensy bit stalkerish.  But I still love Ben and am glad Janelle got to meet him and end up truly loving him.

The final story, however, was great!!!!!  It takes place after Ben has left Janelle.  He finally returns to his birth place, reuniting with his family.  Personally, I can't imagine what that feeling would be like, to finally see your son after years of him missing, possibly thinking he was dead.  And to think that real people may have to experience this because of crazy people abducting children and such.  Anyway, the novella overlaps with Unbreakable, and there is a massive cliffhanger!!!!!  Grr, I can't wait until it comes out.

Also, there is a two chapter teaser of Unbreakable at the end of this.  Of course, Elizabeth did it to us again!!  Cliffhanger...

P.S. Did anyone else find it strange that the novella cost money?  I did.  They're almost always free on the author's website.  Only $1.99, but still weird!

Would I recommend it?  Yeah, the first two stories weren't absolutely terrible.  And the last one makes up for it.

Why are the British so awesome? Cover Reveal: Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris

Here's the UK cover reveal of Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris, sequel to Unraveling

UK edition

Why is this cover so much prettier than the US cover?  At least I think it is ; )

US edition

The eye color might be wrong of the UK edition, but Ben is beautiful nonetheless.  So, if Ben is pictured on the cover, does this mean that there will be more told from his perspective?  Well, I thought that until I read the first two chapters of it from the teaser in Undone.  They were told from Janelle's POV.

I'll be posting a review of Undone very shortly because I just finished it.  Boy, what a big cliffhanger!!! I can't contain my excitement for Unbreakable!!!!

Review: Things I Know about Love by Kate le Vann

Things I Know About LoveThings I Know About Love by Kate le Vann

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Summary: Things I know about love.
1. People don't always tell you the truth about how they feel.2. Nothing that happens between two people is guaranteed to be private.3. I don't know if you ever get over having your heart broken.
Livia Stowe's past experiences with love have been nothing but disappointing, but all that is about to change.  After years of illness, she's boarding a plane for the first time to spend the summer in Princeton, New Jersey, with her brother who's studying abroad.  This Brit is determined to make the most of her American summer and to record every moment of it in her private blog.
America is everything that Livia's ever dreamed of.  And then she meets Adam.  
Swept up in the promise of romance and the magical New York City that Adam shows her, Livia is smitten, but with all she knows about love, is Livia really ready to risk her heart again?
I read this awhile ago, so it may seem like a short review because I forgot what I read, but the truth is that this was one teensy little book!

Characters: Livia seems like a sweet innocent girl.  I'm going to say this a lot, warning you already, but I couldn't get to know her because the book was so short.  I met her, and then the book was over!  All in all, she is a nice, kinda shy character who cares for her brother.

Adam seems like a sweetie as well.  I was just starting to like him, and then the book ended!  He had about one funny line in the book, but he comes off as a great friend and all around great guy.

Plot: Like Nicholas Sparks?  You probably will like this.  Hate Nicholas Sparks? Stay clear from this one.  Personally, I like Nicholas Sparks her and there, but I hated the ending of this.  It was too abrupt and again, the book is too short to develop any kind of plot with characters that you can become attached to. 

Writing: This is written in alternating POV, which you know I adore!  The other cool thing about the writing is that it was written in blog entries.  Now that I have a blog, I can appreciate it more.  I might have read another book written in this format, but I can't remember right now.  It's so cool that authors are incorporating the use of technology into their writing.  However, I am not a fan of authors that use texting language.  If I'm reading a book, I want to read proper sentences.
