BR: Need By: Carrie Jones

Need By: Carrie Jones

Description: Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane...but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now. She couldn't be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara's overactive imagination. In fact, he's still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right - not human - in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.

Rating: 3 STARS

COVER: The cover was pretty good at drawing me in, the gold glitter remined me of a rave. Don't ask why. I also liked how there was a little bit of a mysterious aura near the corners of it.

REVIEW: In the begining I was a little hesitant about the book, but when i continued and got far enough the book was pretty good. Actually, it was nearing great. I liked how they were called shape-shifters instead of were wolves, 'cause that names gettin pretty old. There was some romance between to of the characters Zara and Nick. Oh, and a little from some of the friends, but i kind of forgot there names :0. This book was magical, i'm serious it had some magic in it. Ms. Jones wrote an intense book filled with crazy shenanigans. The plot is easy to follow and the main character has funny quirks, like for example knowing the name of all phobias and reciting them when afraid. CRAZY, but cool.

BR: The Forest Of Hands And Teeth By: Carrie Ryan

The Forest Of Hands And Teeth
In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?

Rating: 2 1/2 STARS

Cover: The cover was pretty good the girls make-up was nice and it had a mysterious/ weird aura goin on with it which i loved, along with the title and description. ZOMBIES!!

Review: Okay, this book had one major problem and then some mini ones here and there. Which i didn't take to well and it made it hard to fully enjoy the scenes. I also didn't like how the love triangle/romance thing was written there issues and at moments the character was acting way, wel, out of character even if there was a possibility for her to be having a pchychotic break down. And if you want to read it just check the library, if they don't have it then don't spend or worry to much about it. But, i did love how descriptive the author was and at moments it was a little to over bearing. And then it'd smooth right out. The author blended the emotions together pretty well. And over all, it was an okay book.
