Giveaway: Glow Amy Kathleen Ryan (INT)

Giveaway: Glow By Amy Kathleen Ryan.




Summary: What if you were bound for a new world, about to pledge your life to someone you'd been promised to since birth, and one unexpected violent attack made survival—not love—the issue? Out in the murky nebula lurks an unseen enemy: the New Horizon. On its way to populate a distant planet in the wake of Earth's collapse, the ship's crew has been unable to conceive a generation to continue its mission. They need young girls desperately, or their zealous leader's efforts will fail. Onboard their sister ship, the Empyrean, the unsuspecting families don't know an attack is being mounted that could claim the most important among them... Fifteen-year-old Waverly is part of the first generation to be successfully conceived in deep space; she was born on the Empyrean, and the large farming vessel is all she knows. Her concerns are those of any teenager—until Kieran Alden proposes to her. The handsome captain-to-be has everything Waverly could ever want in a husband, and with the pressure to start having children, everyone is sure he's the best choice. Except for Waverly, who wants more from life than marriage—and is secretly intrigued by the shy, darkly brilliant Seth. But when the Empyrean faces sudden attack by their assumed allies, they quickly find out that the enemies aren't all from the outside.

Waiting On Wednesday: Between the Lines #4



Waiting On Wednesday:



Hosted By Breaking the Spine where once a week you pick a book that hasnt been released yet that your excited for.

Summary:
Delilah is a bit of a loner who prefers spending her time in the school library with her head in a book—one book in particular. Between the Lines may be a fairy tale, but it feels real. Prince Oliver is brave, adventurous, and loving. He really speaks to Delilah. And then one day Oliver actually speaks to her. Turns out, Oliver is more than a one-dimensional storybook prince. He’s a restless teen who feels trapped by his literary existence and hates that his entire life is predetermined. He’s sure there’s more for him out there in the real world, and Delilah might just be his key to freedom. Delilah and Oliver work together to attempt to get Oliver out of his book, a challenging task that forces them to examine their perceptions of fate, the world, and their places in it. And as their attraction to each other grows along the way, a romance blossoms that is anything but a fairy tale.


Due release date: June 19th 2012 By ,

This looks amazing! I've never read a Jodi Picoult book before but I've heard many great things about her so I am so glad her and her younger daughter are writing a Yound Adult book together.

Character Pictures For The Summer I Turned Pretty



Character Pictures For The Summer I Turned Pretty

How I imagined the characters to look in this book!


Belly: Belly is the youngest of The Summer I Turned Pretty bunch. Only being 15 in the first story. She tends to be the one that gets teased and picked on for being the only young girl in the group. With the boys leaving her out all the time. She comes across as sweet and naive and tell-tale grassing on the boys all the time because they push her out. Her love is for Conrad Fischer who she has been in love with since he stuck up for her when Steven and Jeremiah tried to make her cry.




Lucy Hale.




Conrad: He's the oldest of the teenagers being 18 and son of Susannah. Hes silent and mysterous most of the time and always speaks his opinon and notices everything about everyone. He's very protective of Belly and the boys of the bunch tend to look up to him all the time. He controls the group and everyone listens to what he has go to say. Most of the time in the first summer series he ignores everyone and plays on his guitar.
Matt Lanter.








Jeremiah: He's sweet and bubbly and full of fun. Hes the youngest out of the boys and the most up for doing anything. Jeremiah has a passion for football and a passion for partying he wants to be the typical popular kid that everyone loves and it seems to work because with his charm everyone loves him. He is Bellys bestfriend who they both share everything with each other. Who also happens to like her too.







Sterling Knight.





Steven: He is the second oldest of the bunch. The prankster and second in command of Conrad who he idolizes. He is also Bellys older brother who he constantly teases all the time and treats like a little girl.














Taylor: She is the bestfriend of Belly. And is in the book regularly. She happens to like both Conrad and Jeremiah but because she gets no attention from Conrad she ends up kissing Jeremiah instead but also happens to like Bellys brother. She is the complete opposite of Belly. Bossy, self-centered and wears nothing but girly things. Even though she loves attention Taylor is a true friend for Belly through out all the books and helps her out when needed.













Review: The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer #1)

Review: The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer #1)




Summary: Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer--they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

Review: I began reading this on a high note. I had heard so many good things about this book that I just had to get my hands on it and read it. I was not dissapointed. This book was amazing. And when I say amazing it truly was one of the best books I've read. It tells the story of Belly a girl who spends who summer with her brother and mother at a summer house with her moms bestfriend and her children. Unlike other summers this one is different. The boys start taking an interest in Belly and seem to be alot different with her. You have Jeremiah the fun, jock, easy going boy who is Bellys bestfriend. And Conrad the silent, mysterous, caring boy who is the one Belly has crushed of forever! I loved both boys but in this book I loved Conrad more. Jeremiah was awesome and such a lovely guy but Conrad was just amazing and I rooted for him and Belly until the end because there was so much spark there, then there was with Jeremiah. Even if Conrad was over protective of Belly in most parts.
My favourite character was Susannah (the boys mother) she was so sweet and nice to Belly and would let her do anything she wanted. Through this book you exprience, friendship and a great family relationship and what summer for Belly is like. It also in most parts, goes back in time to when Belly was younger which I just loved, it made you understand things alot better.

I deffinetly recommend reading this book. Its a great summer read. And you dont have to think to much on the first book, its refreshing and nice to read too. Jenny Han rocks.
I rate this A+
