Each week, the girls over at The Broke and the Bookish think up a fun theme for the week and participating bloggers around the net join in. The theme for this week is:

Top Ten Characters I Want with Me on a Desert Island

Two weeks in a row this has been super easy and super challenging all at the same time!

 

1. Katniss, The Hunger Games. I’m betting she’ll be on a lot of lists today. But let’s face it, she’s an incredible hunter and on a desert island, you need all the help you can get as far as food is concerned.

2. Hermione Granger, Harry Potter. With all of her random knowledge? She’s definitely a good girl to have in a stick spot!

3. Alina, Grisha. The Sun Summoner? Yes, please. Light when we need it!

4. Magnus, The Mortal Instruments/The Bane Chronicles/The Infernal Devices. A witch and a warlock? We SHOULD have it made!

5. Mal, Grisha. Essentially a perfect tracker? Score!

6. Fia, Mind Games. Perfect instincts? We’ll take them!

7. Tarver, These Broken Stars. Okay. He’s totally some eye candy. BUT he’s a decorated solider and good in a tight spot so it’s a win-win. Plus he’s been stranded on an essentially uninhabited planet so he’s got experience!

8. Logan, Defiance. Inventor of all the awesome things and eye candy. We need it and he’ll probably be able to invent it!

9. Roar, Under the Never Sky. Superhuman hearing abilities? I definitely think that would come in handy on a desert island. Doesn’t hurt that he’s some eye candy too!.

10. Drill, Rites of Passage. Badass drill sergeant? Mmmm. I’ll take him any day of the week! Scouting and survival skills will be handy too!

11. Nerissa, The Aquarathi. Shape shifting don’t want to mess with her sea alien? Well. We’ve got fishing covered! (: Plus. She’d be super awesome to hang out with!

12. Sam, Incarnate. We totally need a musician that can play all the things. I’m sure he’ll have some sort of instrument with him! Plus, again, EYE CANDY.

*ARC Review* Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi March 3, 2014

Rating: 3 ½ stars
Pub date: 28 January 2014
Publisher: HarperCollins
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Format: eARC via publisher
Status:Book three of Under the Never Sky trilogy

Summary:

The earth-shattering conclusion to Veronica Rossi’s “masterpiece” Under the Never Sky trilogy and sequel to the New York Times bestselling Through the Ever Night (Examiner.com).

 

Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it’s time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.

The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe-haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do-and they are just as determined to stay together.

Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won’t even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost.

Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission-because Cinder isn’t just the key to unlocking the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, he’s also their friend. And in a dying world, the bonds between people are what matter most.

In this final book in her stunning Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.

My thoughts:

I have really struggled with this review. It’s not because the book was awful by any means, It just felt lacking for me. The action and danger was there and I enjoyed it. I just felt disconnected in a way. After talking to Mary (Mary Had a Little Book Blog) and reading some other ARC reviews, it seems I am not alone in this.

I enjoyed Perry and Aria’s relationship. I think they go very well together. I liked seeing their relationship blossom from dislike to love. I also was happy to see them take a larger leadership role in their respective worlds. Perry is definitely a natural leader and flourishes in it even though it’s obvious he isn’t sure of himself. I still love Perry’s fierce protective nature over Cinder.

I was disappointed with the lack of Cinder in Into the Still Blue. Though the scences with Cinder struck me the most and were some of my favourites. Veronica broke my heart, stitched it up, and smashed it to smithereens. I love poor Cinder and he’s certainly the only one who continuously reconnected me to the story.

I was most upset with Roar’s development. I mean really upset. I understand that he lost the love of his life, but come on man! The severe douchebaggery was not needed. I went from loving Roar to really wanting to smack him upside the head. Also, his character “development” didn’t help with my lack of connection with Into the Still Blue. I would say it actually caused me to become more apathetic.

By the end, I just didn’t care anymore. Thing were wrapped up and I didn’t feel like there should’ve been more to follow, I just felt that the final leg of the journey was lacking. As much as I loved Through the Ever Night and liked Under the Never Sky, I really don’t know if I’ll come back to this one again. Maybe only to see how things wrap up again. Or maybe time away from this series and the hype will help. I do believe Into the Still Blue suffered from over hype for me. I had heard so many things about how great the finale was going to be and I got so excited that I think it just didn’t live up to my expectations somehow. This is definitely one of those I can’t make sense of it things. Into the Still Blue just wasn’t for me. As a whole, I recommend this series, because it is really great and imaginative. I CANNOT recommend this on its own other than you have to see how things come together in the end.

*Review* Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi February 23, 2014

Rating: 5 stars
Pub date: 8 January 2013
Publisher: HarperCollins
Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Dystopian
Format: e-book, library
Status: Book two of Under the Never Sky series

Summary:

It’s been months since Aria learned of her mother’s death.
Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him.

Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It’s a moment they’ve been longing for with countless expectations. And it’s a moment that lives up to all of them. At least, at first.

Then it slips away. The Tides don’t take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry’s control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist?

Threatened by false friends and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night?
In this second book in her spellbinding Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi combines fantasy and sci-fi elements to create a captivating adventure-and a love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.

My thoughts:

While I was not completely satisfied with Under the Never Sky, I really enjoyed Through the Ever Night. In a way, I savored Through the Ever Night because it took me longer than normal to read it. It happens when you get so sick your head spins at the thought of reading. Thankfully, that quickly passed and I was able to thoroughly enjoy the book!

As the new leader of the Tides, Perry comes into his own. He was born to lead and finally has his chance to shine. Even though he’s been separated from Aria for months, he shows time and again that he is truly only hers.

After the heart breaking loss of her mother, Aria is even more uncertain of herself than ever. Being half Dweller and half Outsider has left her with a bit of a void in her identity. She doesn’t let it hold her back completely though and she continues to flourish outside of the pods. Though she has escaped the pods, Hess is still controlling her by threatening Perry’s nephew. He promises to keep Talon safe as long as Aria looks for the location of the mysterious Still Blue.

Knowing her presence is causing dissention in the Tides, Aria leaves with Roar in search of Liv and the Still Blue. I really enjoyed watching Aria and Roar’s relationship grow. I think they are a great example of how a guy and a girl can be friends with zero romantic intentions. Though in their world, it would be an appropriate relationship to foster since they share the same gift. Roar is definitely my favourite character in the series. My love for him only grows in Through the Ever Night.

My second favourite character is one we learn more about in Through the Ever Night. I loved Cinder and am so happy we learn more about him. I’m really excited to see how his role in Into the Still Blue plays out.

The certain heart wrenching event near the end was brutal. It also felt a bit unnecessary. That is if things play out like how I think it’ll go. It’d be nice if I’m wrong. I really, really hope I am!

I liked getting to see one of the other tribes. If everything is as harsh as it is in the world, I really wonder why the tribes don’t try to cooperate more. It would make more sense to me, but maybe that’s one of the background details that aren’t completely explained.

One thing I really didn’t like (other than the heart wrenching) was Perry’s jealous. He can scent tempers and feelings, he would’ve instantly known if shenanigans were going on between Roar and Aria. He KNEW before they left that Aria’s feelings were true to him and Roar’s true to Liv. I also didn’t like the reason the seed of doubt was planted. Skanky ho. Everything can’t be perfect and Perry is human and human’s make mistakes!

Again, like with Under the Never Sky, I do recommend this book and series. I can’t wait to continue with my binge read and dive into my eARC of Into the Still Blue.

*Review* Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi February 3, 2014

Rating: 4 stars
Pub date: 1 December 2011
Publisher: HarperCollins
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Format: hardcover, signed, won in a contest
Status:Book one of Under the Never Sky trilogy

Summary:

Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered.

This was worse.

Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland–known as The Death Shop–are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild–a savage–and her only hope of staying alive.

A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile–everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria’s help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

My thoughts:

I won a copy of this in a giveaway hosted by Mary. It sat on my TBR shelf for longer than it should have. Since it was surrounded by hype, I was kind of reluctant to read it. One good thing about waiting to read it is when I did, I got to binge read the series.

This world was incredible. It’s one that sucked me in immediately, but it is definitely a world that I would not want to live in. There are dangers that are everywhere you turn.

In a world where racism is still prevalent (if you disagree with that, we can debate at a different time), this was a book that focused on racism and stereotypes. You may disagree with me on it, but to me it felt that way. There are deeply ingrained beliefs on both sides. The Dwellers live in a fantastical world and are raised to believe those who live on the outside are dangerous savages (very colonial power vs native right?) The Outsiders hold a deep and bitter resentment towards the Dwellers for some long ago transgression which is later revealed.

I will admit that I read Roar & Liv before Under the Never Sky (Mary gave me massive grief) so I was waiting impatiently for the wonderful Roar to show up. I absolutely adore Roar. He’s my favourite by far! I wasn’t that big of a fan of Perry in the beginning. I’m not into the broody type. I did grow to care for him and I really like the pairing between Perry and Aria. I believe they work well together to balance each other’s strengths and weaknesses.

Aria was very naïve when she was dropped on the outside, but it givers her tremendous room for growth and she spends the whole book blossoming. Through her perspective we see just how vast the technology gap is between Dweller and Outsider. Civilisation has progressed in the Pods to eradicate illnesses, has the capabilities to stop menstrual cycles, and create realms of unimaginable levels.

We see everything from Middle Ages-esque villages and technological levels where the Tides live to a more modern feeling city to the very futuristic Pods. Veronica does an amazing job of creating a vast technological arc in this sci-fi future. It feels to me that it is more post-apocalyptic than dystopian.

Having a boy and girl from vastly different backgrounds can be terribly cliché, but Veronica makes it work very well in this world. What I really loved about the Aria and Perry pairing was that it was not an insta-love situation. It was quite the opposite in the beginning which was very refreshing. It was nice to see a relationship truly built from the ground up and not starting with “love.” The complications of their genetic abilities adds a nice spice to their situation when breeding can be considered a key part of life.

I’ve never been a fan of perspective changes, but I’ve read several recently and they are starting to change my mind. Veronica did a great job with the easy glow back and forth between Aria and Perry. One thing I didn’t enjoy in UTNS was the futuristic jargon from the two societies. Obviously language changes every day, but without context (which some of these are through the book) it was very difficult to pick them up. Once I picked up on their meaning, the bafflement quickly faded.

While I didn’t feel that UTNS completely lived up to the hype, I did enjoy it enough to continue on with the series. I think maybe after time away from it and the hype dies down from Into the Still Blue, I may come back to it and read it again. I do plan on rereading the series eventually, just not sure on how soon. I would and do recommend UTNS to post-apocalyptic and sci-fi enthusiasts.

 

Hello February, Goodbye January! February 2, 2014

I hope you’ve had a great start to 2014! I basically took the month off in January and it was nice. After the craziness of the holidays and trying to cram blogging and family obligations all together, it was nice to focus mainly on my family. I love reading and blogging, but my family comes first. Taking a step back really helped me and I think it’ll help me focus and balance things better from now on. I started getting good at working in advance and scheduling, but I’ve got to get even better. I’ve got to get better at taking a step away from the computer, phone, kindle, books, etc when the kiddos want/need me. Books will always be there to be read. My babies won’t always be babies.

We read a good amount of books, but not as much as I would’ve liked. We’ll work on that in February!

  • Stay ahead of schedule
  • Read more with the kiddos

February releases I’m excited for:

Edelweiss & Netgalley challenge: 2/25 (Into the Still Blue and Her Dark Curiosity)

TBR Pile challenge: 6/11-20 {I can and most likely WILL be increasing my level on this. I’m also not including ARCs in this unless I complete them after the book is released} (TTEN, Brooke, Vampires Scones & Edmund Herondale, These Broken Stars, Evertrue, and Deception)

Series challenge: 3/4-6 {I can and most likely will increase my level on this as well} (TTEN, Brooke, ITSB, Her Dark Curiosity, Evertrue)

Top Ten Tuesday #25: Top Ten Characters I’d NEVER Want To Trade Places With January 28, 2014

Each week, the girls over at The Broke and the Bookish think up a fun theme for the week and participating bloggers around the net join in. The theme for this week is:

Top Ten Characters I’d NEVER Want To Trade Places With

Katniss Everdean in Panem, The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Really? Who would actually want to live in this world? And if I did, I’m totally with Katniss on the no having kids thing. I wouldn’t be able to watch my kids go through it. Nope, nope, nope.

 

Aria, Under the Never Sky trilogy by Veronica Rossi. Aether storms? No thanks. A life trapped in Pods? Nah, I’ll pass. I like natural sunlight and being outside too much for that.

 

 

 

Tella, Montana and Brimestone Bleed arenas, Fire & Flood series by Victoria Scott. While having a Pandora would be pretty awesome, I do not envy Tella’s situation in which she gets a Pandora. I would like to see the Amazon one day, I would not like being dropped in the middle of a rain forest/jungle situation. I really want to see the pyramids of Giza, I’m not fond of the idea of being dropped in the middle of a desert and told to get to point B.

 

Voldemort, Europe, Harry Potter series by JK Rowling. Seriously. Who would want to trade places with Voldemort? Incapable of understanding what love is or being able to fall in love. Not me. Besides, the idea of picking on a kid isn’t my cup of tea either. And the Death Eaters? C’mon, I’ll take true friends over those nutcases any day of the week.

 

 

 

Lilac LaRoux, the Icarus and unknown planet, These Broken Stars by Aime Kaufman and Megan Spooner. While it would be nice to be alone with the delightful Tarver, surviving a space crash and being stranded on an unknown planet to do it doesn’t make it on my must do list. Especially with that certain event near the end happens. I’ll pass, thanks.

 

 

Any character in the world of World War Z by Max Brooks. Zombie outbreak? Nah, I’m good. Even if those interviewed are the survivors, I’ll still pass. Though I highly recommend the full cast audiobook if you haven’t checked it out. (:

 

 

Rhine, USA, The Chemical Garden trilogy by Lauren Destefano. Seeing as if I traded places with Rhine, I’d be dead already, I’m really not enthusiastic about that thought. Also not crazy about the whole getting kidnapped and forced to marry a complete stranger thing either.

 

Nerissa, USA, Waterfell by Amalie Howard. Not only can she not return home because her throne has been stolen, but her father was murdered. While Lo is tasty and I’d love to get to know him better, I would not like to find myself in Nerissa’s shoes! It will be nice to see how things continue on for Lo and Nerissa in Oceanborn though!

 

 

June Iparis, dystopian Los Angeles, Legend trilogy by Marie Lu. It would be awesome to be a kickass heroine, but the world that the United States has become is not a pleasant one and I would not want to live in it. Antarctica, however, would be a pretty badass place to visit, but overall, no thanks. I’m good here.

 

Sookie Stackhouse, Bon Temps, Louisiana, Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris. Yeah, no. I would NOT like to be able to read people’s minds for anything. Yeah, sometimes I do wish I could see what people were really thinking when I know they’re holding something back, but I really do believe that would be a curse and I’m not up for it. Plus the vampires, werewolves, and everything else she encounters is just too much. I love reading about those things, but I’ll keep them in my novels, thanks.

 

Please Be Kind, Rewind! 22 December 2013 – 4 January 2014 January 4, 2014

Hope you all have had a great holiday season! (: Our Christmas was nice. Stress free for the most part. New Year’s Eve was quiet. Punk spent the night with my mom so it was just me, Bug, and hubby to ring in the new year. Got a big slobbery kiss from Bug after the ball dropped. (: I didn’t get as much reading done as I would’ve liked. We all got sick just before Christmas and then my aunt and uncle came in from New Mexico for the first time in 2 ½ years so we spent much needed quality time with them. I’ll take a poor read tally for that! I’m sick again, so I’m really playing catch up! I had hoped to finish Into the Still Blue yesterday, but a fever prevented that. /: I’m really looking forward to 2014! Three reading challenges are sure to make it an interesting year! Keep an eye out for giveaways. I’m hoping I can start having more for your guys soon! I do have a few planned, but I’m hoping this will play out to where I can do even more!
