Last Battle 7 (Chronicles of Narnia Adult Jkt)

The Last Battle - C.S. Lewis well...I knew this ending was coming since the moment Aslan told Lucy and Edmond they were never coming back to Narnia and what ever else he all said. I would like to have given it a 5, and can understand why people did, but for me it was the end of my childhood fantasy world. And it was ruined, I didn't hate the ending but when he ended Narnia, it was taken away from me too in a sense and all the adventures seemed pointless in a way.

Bridge to Terabithia

Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson Well, I'd love to give this book a five, but I just can't. It was written wonderfully and quite an emotional roller coaster, but thanks to Disney, I need my happy ending. Well, I shouldn't say that, the last page was a great way to end it, but the climax is just too much to bear, no getting over that. So, this will be the only time I read it, just as the movie, I do not plan to revisit the sadness created in its quake.

Love Is All You Need: The Nature of Jade; Wild Roses

Love Is All You Need: The Nature of Jade; Wild Roses - Deb Caletti I'm going to rate/review this book by the individual stories

The Nature of Jade

The Nature of Jade - Deb Caletti I give this book 3.5 stars. It was a great story but missing details, which is my favorite part of love stories. I thought the ending sucked. She could of got off the plane and at least seen him. Oh, and it really bothered me about how they kept saying people hardly every die in childbirth, so it can't be true. Wrong someone has to be that person. So while yes it hardly happens, there is one person that has to be that 1 out of the 100 . I get the point is that it's a lie but based off that it shouldn't of given it away.

Mrs. Maddox (Beautiful, #1.5)

Mrs. Maddox (Beautiful, #1.5) - Jamie McGuire This little short story wasn't very intriguing. I mean what's the point of her phone exchange with her bff. I found most of it non-romantic or swoon worthy, except for that gift. Now that was very sweet. Awww, Travis. :)

Where She Went

Where She Went - Gayle Forman First, I'd like to thank the author for not ruining this. I needed them together in the end. It was a beautiful love story and most definitely heartbreaking. I cried every time poor Adam recollected on his memories. Which I kind of feel bad because I only got teary eyed once with the first book and its sadder story line. This is definitely one of my favorite love stories, that came together on a nights tour.

Walking Disaster: A Novel

Walking Disaster - Jamie McGuire ok..so I was not expecting to give this book 5 stars in fact I was going to be a little generous by giving it 3 stars were the thoughts going through my mind when I started reading it but half way through the book I started to adore it. In the beginning I felt like it was the exact same book but changing Abby's quotes to she and Travis's to I but that changed suddenly. It's funny because at the point I stopped liking the first book as much is where I started falling in love with this second book. I even admit it made me cry unlike the first one. I could feel his anguish when he returned to his brothers it was one of the most heart-breaking book moments I've ever had and couldn't help but feel my stomach drop...my heart definitely went out to him. I also realize what I felt was missing from the first one the feeling of need and undying love for the Romeo of the story but I get why she wrote it that way... Abby was hiding and lying to herself about her feelings for Travis.

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1) - Jamie McGuire Oh, the comments on this one make me laugh, big time. This has got to be one of the realist books I've ever read. Which is one of the reasons I did like it. They were both stupid. The girl wasn't being a two timer while the guy was being a faithful saint or vise versa, they both had their faults. So, he deserved the two timing for a bit. And thankfully, I didn't have to cringe reading it. Admittedly, I wanted to take this book and hit both of them with it. You know, to smack a little sense into them. Yes, he was pretty, overly protective. Maybe a bit ridiculous at times, but if it was her older brother, bet you wouldn't be thinking twice about it.

Next, he's never really cared for anyone, never had to endure a bout of this oh,so new to him emotion, called jealousy. Therefore, I suppose I can see his side on the over reaction But, let me tell you, I'd be right with little Miss. Abernathy, shits not gonna fly.

(I still need to edit the below just not sure how I'm going to word it so be warned, it needs tweaking)
It's not stalking if you're both in love with each other and they were. the point was that despite what she was saying he knew what she really wanted. Another thing if some guy slept with you and left in the morning and you were completely in love with them I'm pretty sure you'd be crushed too. He was clearly completely broken so its really not that disturbing that he flipped his lid and trashed the room...they are guys they react different then we do. That being said I only gave it a 3 because I felt like it was missing something. like a little more feelings before she said them on abbys end since she is the narrator and all.

Reached (Matched Trilogy Book 3)

Reached - Ally Condie I ended up liking the book, but I had my doubts. Somewhere between the end of the second book and halfway through the third. It seemed, I don't know, hard to read almost. like it was going no were but finally some action or some sort of life came back to the story....I'm glad that it kind of came together in a round circle in the end and of course the one thing that determines the out come of the story for me is that the "true love" of the story stays together if I wanted to read real life i'd watch t.v :)...but I like when stories have happy ending and unlike reality; one where they aren't looking for more when they already have one heart.

The Vampire Diaries: The Hunters: Destiny Rising

Destiny Rising - L.J. Smith Alright,I guess I will write a review for this monstrosity of a series. First, I'd like to say that I absolutely dreaded reading these books since Midnight, maybe the sixth book or whatever one that they went to the dark dimension in. But since I have some strange must finish the series even if you hate it problem going on, I couldn't stop reading. Even when I had to close my eyes for a second and take a deep breath, just to digest what I was about to read. No, I don't think it was the ghost writer that ruined this series, that ship was sinking long before then. Yes, it sucks that LJ was fired but it wasn't her idea in the first place for the story. It was the powers that be and she was merely giving it character.
Now, WHY you ask ...Because what makes Elena so freakin' different form Katherine. Hhhhmmm...give me a minute.
climatic drum roll
Oh yeah, I got it. NOTHING !!! They both toyed with the Salvatore’s hearts and were selfish. I don’t want to read a story where the main character and everyone before them are the same. And why is it that all these women in books lately can’t help but be hoes (yes that’s what I think two-timing is). Anyway, done with that rant.

Now, I thought this was the last book of the series. I mean I was so flipping excited I could finally be done. Cartwheels, flips, round offs, you know the whole shebang. So you get what kind of emphatic journey I was on here, but no. You couldn't just leave it be with your anti-climatic ending. Then, I read some reviews for this next so called book and you kill my favorite character. Lets just kill Elena, I mean really kill her this time, and call it a day. Perfect 5 star ending.

On my final note, I am going to be positive. The only thing I did like about these last 3 books, was bonnie and zanders relationship.I’m a sucker for love stories. & I don't care how teenish it was, I loved it!!!
