When you first open the box this is what it looks like. This month’s box was brown rather than its usual blue but that is due to the size of the products. I love how unique the packaging is. The Bella Box logo is placed all around the cardboard box and the black tissue paper is a simple yet nice touch to the design of the package. I do wish I could see the blue box packaging. In addition, I was given a personalized message in the box which was such a nice personal touch. I also received card with a list and description of the products featured in the box. The card included the theme of this month’s box which was “Summer Glow”, the price of the products and where to buy the products.

“Matches + Apocalypses” Review: This Is Where The World Ends by Amy Zhang

rw3rw2re

Title: This Is Where The World Ends
Author: Amy Zhang
Release Date: March 2016
Retail Price: $17.99
Overall Rating:  7.5/10
Genre: Romance, Drama, Contemporary and Coming of Age

I recently read Amy Zhang’s This Is Where The World Ends and I don’t really have proper words to describe how I felt about it. Unique and exciting would be two words to sum this book up. I haven’t read a book quite like This Is Where The World Ends in while. It reminded me of Looking For Alaska in many different aspects. If you enjoyed Looking For Alaska you would definitely like This Is Where The World Ends.

This Is Where The World Ends by Amy Zhang follows the story of two best friends Janie and Micah, who have grown up together but have become distant since high school started. Janie becomes the popular girl, whilst Micah becomes the lonely boy in the back. One day Micah wakes up at a hospital and discovers that Janie has vanished and disappeared from his life. No one is giving him the real truth about Janie and as he searches deeper he discovers what truly happened on the night Janie disappeared. The truth he discovers changes him forever.

spoiler review: (there will be spoilers in the following section)

Thank you so much to HarperCollins publishing. I received Amy Zhang’s This Is Where The World Ends from Harper Collins, in exchange for a review.  Please note that this does not alter, influence or change my opinions on the novel, in the following review.

I haven’t read Amy Zhang’s books before, I’ve heard lots about her other novel, Falling into Pieces but it never caught my eye. It wasn’t until I DSC_0011_Fotorread This Is Where The World Ends, that I discovered Amy Zhang has a very distinctive voice in her novels. Her writing is very colloquial but that doesn’t mean it is necessarily bad. Amy Zhang’s voice is easy to read but underneath it there is so much emotion from every character, that is reflected into each sentence. Like I mentioned earlier, her writing style and the story line really reminds me of John Green’s books.

What I really enjoyed about this novel is the switching of perspectives as well as time. I thought I would end up getting really confused but since Janie and Micah’s voices are so individual, I actually appreciated the flashbacks. I didn’t want to get confused with what was happening and reading this book felt like one giant puzzle. Each chapter reflected the thoughts of Janie and Micah and stringing their stories together to figure out what really happened was so much fun. Through Janie’s point of view we get to see her side of the story and how she made the decisions she did. Her final few chapters were quite powerful. There was so many thoughts in each chapter, that it felt like I was really swimming around in her mind. The only problems with Janie’s character was that we got very caught up in her story that I didn’t get a chance to find out more about who she truly is and who she used to be.

Micah’s character was distinctively different to Janie and I enjoyed reading from his perspective.I felt so much sympathy for him. Reading from his point of view, really toyed with the reader. It would give you a break from Janie’s story but at the same time it would keep you anticipated for what happened on the night Janie disappeared. I thin Micah’s personality got a bit lost along the way. I could clearly picture his thoughts in my mind but his character felt a little bland.

The ending was action filled. Finding out what happened to Janie made you really empathize with her character. I loved the idea of using matches and apocalypses as a motif, it was a very fitting metaphor for the two. Janie’s fire dwindled and ended, whilst Micah’s fire was ignited by Janie’s diminishing match. I have to say,
though, the ending felt abrupt. I would love to see an epilogue to see what happened to Micah in the future and it felt like there was no proper closure on Janie.

Overall, I highly enjoyed the novel. It was a short, edgy and intriguing read, for all John Green fans. Both characters, Micah and Janie are two teenagers that you will grow to understand throughout the novel. This novel is such a unique and different read. If you are looking for a book similar to Looking For Alaska or We Were Liars, you will love this one.

I’m Part Of The Yearbook Committee! The Yearbook Committee Review

FotorCreated

Title: The Yearbook Committee
Author: Sarah Ayoub
Release Date: February 2016
Retail Price: $16.00
Overall Rating:  7/10
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Drama and Growing-up

I received  Sarah Ayoub’s The Yearbook Committee from Harper Collins Publishing Press, in exchange for a review.  Please note that this does not alter, influence or change my opinions on the novel, in the following review.

“Everything seemed uncertain, different, damaged. Just like the promise of our youth, now irreversibly changed due to a night whose sinister warning had been brewing steadily beneath the surface of our teenage dreams,”
– The Yearbook Committee by Sarah Ayoub

I don’t really know how to label this book- The Yearbook Committee. It definitely was a different book to what I normally read and I foundmyself liking many parts but I didn’t like other parts, as well. However, I have to admit, the book was well written for a contemporary and I couldn’t help loving all of the characters in the book. There is just something so cute when five teenagers with five completely different lives come together to create a yearbook, in their final year of school. There is a little bit of romance, great characters and a lot of drama and I found myself enjoying the book. I recommend this book if you are looking for a not-so-cliche, cute and a drama-filled contemporary.

The Yearbook Committee follows the story of five completely different teenagers who all get dragged and pulled together to form- The Yearbook Committee. As they continue to catch up to complete the yearbook, new romances and friendships begin to form. As the five teenagers try to survive the last year of highschool, problems arises, friendships are broken and irreversable mistakes are made.

spoiler review:

What I really enjoyed about the book was the concept behind it. I love the start of each chapter and how we get this Facebook Status for each DSC_0105character, it was so cute and it’s a very contemporary way to write the novel. I also love how throughout the story there are multiple dilemas with each character, due to the many perspectives. At times when I felt bored or didn’t really enjoy what was happening I knew I could look forward to reading the lives of other characters in their own perspectives. Normally, I would hate multiple points of views because I hate trying to workout which chapter is which character’s but Sarah Ayoub made it really clear which character was which and each individual character had their own distinct voices. For this novel, multiple points of views seemed to work really well, it felt like I was getting insight to the lives of each and every character. I also really enjoyed the prologue, I wanted to know what happened. The prologue was kind of a view of the future and it really keeped me questioning throughout the novel.

As for the characters, I loved the cliché nature of each of the five characters. However, each character as you dug deeper you discover that they are actually totally difficult to their labels as- “the new girl,”; “the popular girl” and “the loner”. I loved how she took the stereotypical characters and gave them each a new found depth. The only issue I had was the fact that I found it difficult to relate to the characters. Charlie was a girl I really wanted to like, I tried yet I kind of failed, she grew on me by the end of the novel but whilst reading the book, I didn’t really like her personality. I understand how she was the type of girl who fought for rights of many minorities. However, there was this edge to her that got on my nerves. I didn’t like how she acted as if the world owed her this huge favour and then she fell in love with the school captain. I couldn’t really stand it. Matty was a character that added a sense of darkness and reality to the story because his story was one of the more sorrowful stories. Anyway, I did love Tammi’s story because I enjoyed reading about how she was starting to drift away from being the cruel popular person she was. Her character developed so well and I found myself relating to Tammi the most. What really annoyed me was the fact that she took the drugs from Mike. I wanted to see how their relationship would develop, yet it backfired. This brings me to my next point- the ending.

The ending threw me off, because I never expected the book to end like it did. It was abrupt and I was in a few ways disappointed. I wanted to see what would happen to all of the characters. I felt like we never really get to see how the characters dealt with the after math. I can’t believe Gillian dies- I was literally like, “What is happening?” I couldn’t belive Tammi took the drugs because you would think that by the time they were in the last year of high school they would know what to do when a stranger gives you unknown pills. (#areyoukidingme) I wanted to see the Yearbook, I thought that there was so much talk about the Yearbook yet we never really get to see glipses of the finish product. The yearbook idea kind of was lost within the plot.

Overall the book was definitely really enjoying to read and I found myself cracking a smile once or twice. I really enjoyed the storyline and I loved reading about the lives of each characters! I highly recommend it if you are looking for a unique and special contemporary.

Where The Stars Still Shine: Review

Title: Where The Stars Still Shine
Author: Trish Doller
Release Date: August 2015
Retail Price: $12.99
Overall Rating: 7.5/10
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Drama

Where The Stars Still Shine is a cutesy romance, that is fresh and exciting but definitely unique. When I read this novel, I really felt like I needed something cute and contemporary and this book did not disappoint. Originally, it did take a while to get through the first two or three chapters but from there I was like a rocket ship and I zoomed through it! I really recommend it if you have read and loved all the really popular contemporaries!

The novel is told by Callie, who has been on the run with her mother for her whole life. One day, her mother is caught and charged with kidnapping- Callie suddenly gets whisked into another life filled with a roof over her head, friends and a real teenage life. Callie is grateful but she doesn’t want to forget about her history and throughout the novel Callie discovers what it really means to be part of a family and to fall in love

*SPOILERS FOR WHERE THE STARS STILL SHINE*

Can I just point out how cute this novel was? I love the plot for this story because Callie was such a complex character. The start of the novel was a major bang where the main character was seeking refuge and her mother was not caring about her. Callie has had a really troubled childhood, where she has been on the run he whole life. I really liked this component of the plot because it makes the book so much more interesting- it was a really fresh and unique. It is not often where contemporaries mix the cutesy romance with a really dark undertone and that was definitely explored really well throughout the novel.

A lot of the book dealt with Callie fitting in and because I have never been through something as extreme as her character, I found it quite hard to relate to her. Instead of really feeling how she would feel, I felt more like I was watching her grow, which was equally as enjoying as reading a relatable character. I was in a way really proud of how her character developed throughout the story. Originally, I found her really annoying because she was so stubborn and rude: and that really led to some cringe worthy moments like the scene where Callie made Alex mad. *cringe*

If you remember, Callie treated her father, Greg so badly even though he was giving everything to her- she kept on slowly breaking his trust and you can see through Greg’s actions that Callie was cracking his nice facade. That really frustrated me because Callie really should have been so much more nicer to him because he is actually giving her food on a plate and putting a roof on her head. She was also cutting herself from everyone in Tarpoon Springs, if it wasn’t for Kat making an effort to introduce herself the events in the whole book wouldn’t have happened. However, as we got to the last third of the book you start to notice how much she was changing and delightfully, it was a subtle change. You really notice how her rude shell was cracking and coming out into a more thankful person.

The relationship development was not on point but I definitely loved the relationship of Alex and Callie and totally shipped them! 🙂 Like a mentioned before, I didn’t like how much Callie pried into Alex’s life and that really made me frustrated. My favorite scene in the book was when they went to the beach together that definitely was a highlight! I kind of found it disturbing how Alex was Pheobe’s brother- that irked me. The relationship development, however, was rushed at the beginning and then slowed down- they met randomly by a port and then they quickly “fell in love”. I hate it when books do that but I forgave it all in the end because their relationship was too cute! 🙂 I JUST CAN’T BELIEVE THE ENDING!!! I need to know what happens- don’t tell me that they Alex left for college without her- WHAT HAPPENSSSS???

I really loved the added drama at the end because it led to this major conclusion but the ending was not my favorite- I mean, yeah, I am glad that Alex forgave Callie and that her mother survived but I didn’t like how it ended in midst of the drama. There were too many unanswered questions. Don’t get me wrong I love some open-ended endings but this one was too much of an open end. But nevertheless, I absolutely devoured it and it seriously needs to be much more popular. The writing is amazing and it was a truly different novel. It is definitely one I will be recommending to lots!

Series Review: Sweet Evil and Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins

Title: Sweet Evil and Sweet Peril
Author: Wendy Higgins
Release Date: May 2012,
Series: Sweet Evil Trilogy
Retail Price: $16.99 (Digital Copy Only)
Overall Rating: 5/10
Genre: Fantasy, Drama and Supernatural

If you didn’t know, I have been reading the Sweet Evil trilogy, many might know this series from Lux where it was mentioned in the second last book. After knowing the big book lover Katy is in Lux, I decided to pick up this book hoping that it would be just as good as a typical young-adult “fallen-angel” story. Hush, Hush, a famous young-adult “fallen-angel” series was a series I have loved since I read it last year. Sweet Evil proved me quite wrong. I thought it would be similar to Hush, Hush, in its quality and story-line but no matter how hard I tried to like Sweet Evil I just couldn’t do it. To me it was just, “Meh.” but if you really love Angel type stories this one may be for you.

Sweet Evil and Sweet Peril tells the tale of “goody-two shoes” Anna Whitt who falls into the classic case of Bad-Boy Syndrome. After meeting, the mysterious and stunning Kaidan Rowe all Anna wants to know is her past and her strange sense of connection with the boy but as she dives further into her past she gets dragged into the dangerous world of angels and demons.

*SPOILER ALERT- FOR SWEET EVIL AND SWEET PERIL*

Okay first of all, I just want to say how badly I really wanted to like this book, not like it love it. Jennifer L. Armentrout loved it , it’s rated 4.2 on Goodreads and I’ve seen it pretty much everywhere but honestly I couldn’t bring myself to like it. The whole two books felt like a joke- overused plot devices, lines and characters. It may have been the most ridiculous book I have read this year.

The whole story is pretty much based on the whole “Nephilim side” of the young-adult genre. Anna meets an Angel- Kaidan Rowe who drags her into a whole new side of the world she is living in. Why does that sound familiar? Oh that’s right the plot is pretty much every popular young-adult fantasy novel. I would have reconsidered the low rating if it was at least unique with her characters or writing but no. The only reason why I kept reading this story was because I was clinging on to the hope that it would get better. The complication was slightly unique with discovering that Anna would avenge all the nephilim on the earth and she was somehow the “chosen-one”. I like the idea of the angels each responsible for a different sin- that was really interesting.

It was written quite poorly and the lines were so over-used in books and straight forward: “I pulled into the dusty parking lot. The sun glared bright and hot as I climbed out of the car,” 10 year old me could have written that in my sleep. However, I did like the cultural references that were weaved into the storyline. Each scene of the story was over-used, the fight scenes, the “mother in shock” scenes and the “I’m new to this angel world, please explain to me everything” scenes. Sometimes the plot twists and the embarrassing things Anna does was so cringe-worthy , I had to groan and bury my face into my hands. For example, she does the cardinal sin that somehow every girl character does in books- the “I know you love me and I did mean something to you ” speech. Every young-adult reader is familiar with these situations and Sweet Evil and Sweet Peril definitely had many of those scenes. In Sweet Peril, Anna is like a drug addict and perks up whenever she hears the name, “Kaidan”. When Jay, Anna’s best friend, tells her that he knows where Kai will be she goes up to Kai even though he told her to stay away from him.

I do not know what Kaidan sees in Anna but her character frustrated and annoyed me. I was pulling my hair out by the end of it. Anna showed no character complexity whatsoever. Anna was just too perfect and was way too cliche. She doesn’t hate anything, sees the light in everything, does anything to make new friends and is just so weak. She wants to see new change in the Nephilim world but she doesn’t help at all. I am going to change the world because of who I am- is pretty much Anna’s whole philosophy. Her meeting with her dad was so perfect! When she meets her dad he calls him Daddy and ends up talking to him like they have known each other for years, when Anna has only just met her dad. It annoyed me so much. She is just too perfect.

Kaidan, on the other hand, was an okay character but was the typical mysterious hot boy that readers are supposed to swoon over. I certainly didn’t- Kaidan is a tiny ant against my Daemon Black and Will Herondale. The way he acted like he was too cool for everyone was so annoying. I think the only character that had proper character depth was Ginger. The rest were all too shallow.

Maybe I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I would like because I just wasn’t in the mood for something so cliche. I usually like Nephilim and Angel stories but this one just wasn’t for me. Who knows? I might pick it again sometime and find that I actually do enjoy it. Right now, I craving something unique and am nearly done with the last book in this series. I feel obliged to finish it as it was something important in the Lux series.

I hope you liked this review!

Retribution of Mara Dyer- Review

Title: Retribution of Mara Dyer
Author: Michelle Hodkins
Series: Mara Dyer Trilogy
Release Date: November 4th, 2014
Genre: Supernatural, Romance and Mysterious/Chilling
Rating: 8.5/10

Hey Guys! So, I read the first two Mara Dyer books earlier this year and I fell in love with this book series. It is about a girl called, Mara Dyer who is riddled by past experiences and when she moves to a new school and meets Noah Shaw, her whole life get thrown into madness. Mara Dyer claims she killed people but her parents think she is just traumatized by her life before she moved. It’s a lot of fun to read and it reminds me of an modern Agatha Christie meets Sherlock Holmes novel. The whole book is like an a thousand piece puzzle- there are so many mysteries that are thrown at you at the start but become more mysterious and complex as the story unravels! I recommend it to anyone who is looking for something different to the normal dystopian and supernatural books.

*DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK- SPOILERS AHEAD*

I love this book because all the supernatural occurrences can be backed by science. For example, the whole genetics thing backs up why Noah, Mara, Stella and Jamie have the powers- it all makes sense and it makes the book seem less cheesy. This book is definitely my favorite one out of all the book there was so much action and so many mysteries- it kept me on the edge of my seat.

We start off in the Horizons Mental Facility and creepy Dr Kells and Dr Wayne are telling Mara that the tests they run on her are perfectly safe. Mara really annoyed me at the start as she took the stupidest risks in the world. Like in the first few chapters, when Jamie and Stella clearly told Mara that the door with the radioactive sign was a trap, but Mara, being the reckless person as she is, still opened the door and became heavily sedated by Dr Kells and not to mention the other scene with the old van driver who let Mara, Jamie and Stella in his car but nearly killed Mara and Stella, in the bathroom. The pills inside Mara’s stomach didn’t really get that much of a resolution, we never really find out exactly what the pill did and we don’t really get a resolution on Stella- she just walked out and they never find her again. It would have been a nice touch if they had somehow come across Stella in the future. Jude being Dr Kells son wasn’t really a twist as it was obvious that Jude was somehow linked to Dr Kells.

I liked how Michelle linked back to the first book, with the genetics guide and Mara’s brother. I also like how she threw in the flashbacks to Mara’s grandmother because that way we find out more  about her situation and why Noah and Mara are the one’s that are so called, “chosen”.

The ending was definitely my favorite part and it didn’t slack off- it wasn’t a hasty ending. The whole killing ordeal was something that kept my eyes glued to the page- Mara was Noah’s weakness and Noah was Mara’s weakness. I liked how we don’t actually find out how Noah dies as it is mentioned in the book that Mara will love him to ruins- it’s a good little cliffhanger and I love how the ending relates back right to the start of the saga, “My name is not Mara Dyer, but my lawyer said I had to chose something,”

I had a lot of fun reading this book and it definitely did not disappoint!
