Summary: The last thing sixteen-year-old Jamie Watson–writer and great-great-grandson of the John Watson–wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s enigmatic, fiercely independent great-great-granddaughter, who’s inherited not just his genius but also his vices, volatile temperament, and expertly hidden vulnerability. Charlotte has been the object of his fascination for as long as he can remember–but from the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else.

Then a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Holmes stories, and Jamie and Charlotte become the prime suspects. Convinced they’re being framed, they must race against the police to conduct their own investigation. As danger mounts, it becomes clear that nowhere is safe and the only people they can trust are each other.

Equal parts tender, thrilling, and hilarious, A Study in Charlotte is the first in a trilogy brimming with wit and edge-of-the-seat suspense.”

Title: Pepped Up

Author: Ali Dean 

Published: August 25th 2013

Pages: 238

Goodreads Summary: “Pepper Jones is ready for an epic cross country season. She wants to qualify for Nationals, and she’s willing to do anything it takes to make it happen. She can handle long miles and hill sprints, but boys? That’s an entirely different challenge.

Pepper’s never considered revealing her deeper feelings for her longtime friend, Jace Wilder. After all, he’s got the personal magnetism and good looks to hook just about any girl in town — and he has. Their friendship stands apart from high school social circles, and they’re both just fine with that (or at least they pretend to be).

That is, until running star Ryan Harding moves to town.

When it comes to running, Pepper’s goals are clear. But when it comes to Jace and Ryan, it’s nowhere near as simple.”

Review: This is the first book of the series. I want to say thanks to YA Bound Tours for letting me reading the first and second book of the for review. This was an okay book. It wasn’t the best book. I rated this book 3.5 stars. These reviews are going to be short and sweet because of writing another review on the same post. I really was hoping that Pepper would have a happy ending since she didn’t have a good background that’s tragic. That and the love triangle. These were are big cliches in young adult literature and it turned me down from the book to a large extent.  I do love how this book touches on some very heavy topics that should be discuss in more books. That really made me love the book because young adults should know that this stuff happens and going through the world not knowing it is bad.  I love how she had a very great relationship with her grandma and that is sweet.  The ending turned out to be different than I thought it was going to be.  Another thing that made me upset was it was very slow as it started and took awhile for me to get into.

Goodread’s Summary:“(This is the second book in the Pepper Jones series. The following description contains spoilers for Pepped Up, which should be read first.)

Pepper Jones knew that being Jace Wilder’s girlfriend wouldn’t be simple. But she didn’t predict just how many complications would arise from his past. Jealous girls? That she expected. Family secrets? Not so much. At least Pepper can always hit the trails to clear her head… except when it comes to racing. The high expectations from her phenomenal cross country season haunt her, and she can’t seem to get psyched up for track season. Pepper’s junior year at Brockton Public is full of challenges on and off the track, but she’s not afraid to face them”

Review:  This second book was published last year in July.  A lot of secrets and is more drama filled than the last book. I felt like it began to pick up the pace in the story telling. The world was more developed and it was rich. You see Jace love her more than his  child hood best friend and thats sweet. As the book goes along she faces challenges that every day people fit. The thing that made this book better than the first is it deals with issues that more people can relate to than the first book  We all go through wondering we should break up with someone. We all face road blocks that confuse us as a person. The only that would have made this book better is the whole book only focused on these problems. And it got annoying and boring to me. I felt like there was something missing and it didn’t quite hit the 5 star range. I rated 4 out of 5 stars. It could have been better over all a great book and I can’t wait to read the last one.

Excerpt: “Discovering long lost relatives can be a real nightmare. Do you know who or what you’re related to?

Jaden Lisette never imagined she might not live to see her sixteenth birthday, or that befriending reclusive triplets and a mentally challenged man could be her only chance of survival.

Once she uncovers her family’s deadly secret, Jaden is forced into a world she could only imagine in horror movies.

There’s nowhere to run.” 

My Review:  I  want to say thanks to YA Book Bound for providing with this review copy of this book.  I really loved this book. I don’t know about you but when reading a thriller it is suppose to be on your seats but still have that mystery to it. A lot of books say the word thriller on it but it really doesn’t turn out to be a thriller. It predictable and such. This book was very different in away that it did what it was suppose to do. Keep you on your seats wanting more and more . I loved the plot line to it. It was different and intriguing and everything seemed connected.  The main genre of this book was fantasy even though it was this it still had that thrilling part to it and that’s what made me love it. All the characters were fabulous. The idea of this book is different and I never saw it done before honestly couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait for more of this author and more books by her.

For her, it’s not just the perfect summer escape, it is home. And as a local girl, she knows not to get attached to the tourists. They breeze in over Memorial Day weekend, crowding the shore and stealing moonlit kisses, only to pack up their beach umbrellas and empty promises on Labor Day. Lucy wants more from love than a fleeting romance, even if that means keeping her distance from her summertime neighbor and crush, Connor.
Then Superstorm Sandy tears apart her barrier island, briefly bringing together a local girl like herself and a vacationer like Connor. Except nothing is the same in the wake of the storm. And day after day, week after week, Lucy is left to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and broken home. Now with Memorial Day approaching and Connor returning, will it be a summer of fresh starts or second chances?”

 My Review:

****Actual Rating 3.5 Stars*****

I want to say thanks to Sourcebooks Fire and Netgalley for letting me read this This is another book that I requested because of the pretty cover. I should really stop doing this because it’s wild card. I honestly didn’t really know what the book was about going into it and I didn’t know if it would be any good. It was an okay book very cutesy romance book. It had the major cliche of a young adult books a love triangle. It wasn’t that great of a love triangle. Throughout this book you couldn’t help feel bad for the main character Lucy. I was really hoping as I read this book it would be like Jenny’s Han The Summer I Turned Pretty series but it isn’t. Which I guess it okay. I’m really glad that this book didn’t really have any books that I know of that I could compare it too. I wish it had more of an introduction because it was  confusing and slow paced it did pick up eventually. Overall a great book to start out summer.

Entangled Crush

Summary from Goodreads:  Dakota McCloud has just been accepted into a prestigious art school. Soon she’ll leave behind the artists’ colony where she grew up―hippie dad, tofu since birth, yurt―and join her boyfriend and best friend on the East Coast. It was the plan…until Dakota finds out her boyfriend and best friend hooked up behind her back.

Hurt and viciously betrayed, Dakota pours out her heart on a piece of paper, places it in a bottle, and hurls it into the ocean. But it doesn’t quite go where she expects…

Jack Sauvage finds the bottle washed up on the shore and responds to Dakota’s letter. Except what if his straight-laced life doesn’t jive with the free-spirited girl he’s only seen from afar? As Jack creates a persona he believes she’ll love, they slowly fall for each other with each new letter. Now Jack is trying to find a way to make this delicate, on-paper romance happen in real life…without revealing his deception.

Where Dead Bodies Lie Book Tour

What’s The Book About:

“For as long as I can remember, I have been told to follow three important rules:

1. Always guard my ability
2. Never share my secret
3. And pretend to be normal.

However, those three little rules don’t make my life easier. I still find dead people and deal with strange visions. Not to mention, an attraction to a boy who doesn’t exist. Whenever we cross path’s he mists away like smoke on a mirror. He drives me crazy, that Kaff Cooper.

As a flock of dead crows fall from the blackened sky, Kaff becomes the only one who can see the truth straight to the dark underbelly of who I actually am.

My hands feel the pull to extract the forsaken, the lost, the forgotten. It comes as naturally as breathing and there is no stopping “

Excerpt:   A few more steps into the shadows and the lightness of a feather brushed
against my cheek. Instinctively, I turned around, expecting to see someone but
instead I lost my balance and stumbled forward, arms extended to catch my fall. I
landed on my knees, my hands scraped by broken twigs and rocks. I shifted my
focus from my hands to a crumbling neighborhood further off in the distance. Barely
visible through heavy fog, the dilapidated buildings had a rippling effect. There was
no clear explanation for it, but looking back on that moment later, I realized the
nausea, dizziness, little black dots floating across my eyes, even the black crows
passing overhead, were all precursors to what was about to happen.
The ground rumbled and opened up, like a woman spreading her arms wide to take
me in. There was only one frightening explanation for this and as absurd as it
seemed, it made sense.
Body dowsing. Someone was waiting for me in the limitless black hole beneath my
feet.”

Review: Well this was an okay book it wasn’t bad I did get the book done and I didn’t abandoned the book.  For me there was tons of unanswered questions  at the end of the book and it dragged on and it didn’t get it for me. It was boring. But even though there was a lot of boring parts there were some cute couples in there and I was glad for me it didn’t seem the author was trying to make the whole story about the love.  Another thing that was world was an amazing. It was fully developed and it didn’t leave questions about the world. The answer questions were towards the plot and the characters. About the last 30% of the book it dragged me in and I was glad I didn’t stop reading it. This isn’t my favorite book nor is it the worse book out there so I’m giving this book
