Review: Insurgent - Veronica Roth

    Did you read "Divergent" by Veronica Roth and loved it ? Be Prepared to read Book #2 Insurgent  Review: Insurgent - Book #2 Divergent Series - Veronica Roth - May 2012 As a big reader, one of my annoying things is that there are so many awesome books out there to read, that I never find the time to read the ones I should be or I go to read it and something comes up and then it takes me a while to get to it. This is what happened with Insurgent as I have had it for over a year to read and have only got around to reading it today at work. Insurgent takes us back into the world and lives of the factions and main characters Four and Tris. However in Insurgent we discover Four's real name is Tobias and his father is one of the high leaders of the Faction Umbrella - Marcus Eaton. With one of the factions destroyed - the Erudite's , it is read that the other groups are starting to band together as one but can all the factions live together in harmo

Review: Nashville Part One: Ready to Reach - Inglath Cooper

  Are you ready to "Twang and Strum" ? Do you love the words "Nashville , Country Music, Singing" ? Then reader's get ready for a 2 part serial from Author Inglath Cooper.   Review: Nashville Part One - Ready to Reach - Inglath Cooper - October 2012 Are you a country music fan as opposed to a rock n roll girl ? Or do you prefer both like myself ? Not many people in New Zealand are country western fans but myself I love it with awesome artists like Sara Evans , Joe Nichols, Luke Bryan, The JaneDear Girls etc my list could go on and on and I am actually headed on holiday to Nashville in December so I so can't totally wait - it will be awesomenest.  Nashville Part One introduces us to Two Guys, A Girl and her Dog not the Two guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place. On her way to Nashville with her belongings and her dog Hank Junior  is CeCe Mackenzie hoping to take her talent of being a singer to the stage. When CeCe's car suddenly breaks down,

Review: Forgotten - Melody Carlson

  Are you a fan of Melody Carlson's Edgy Teen Fiction ? Love to read how God can help us even in the worst of times ?   Review: Forgotten - Book #1 Secrets Series - Melody Carlson - August 2010 All Adele ever wanted was a normal life and one where she could be the child and not have to worry about paying the bills, clothing and rent . She could do teens stuff, hang out with her friends and have fun. However, not all of us get that choice and in a way I could relate to Adele as growing up I have had to miss out on things and have helped and still do carry the majority of bills for my family otherwise things would collapse or work out for the worst and life could be like Adele's and many others in the world. Adele's mother is a flighty bird who has bipolar and when she moves Adele to a new neighbourhood , a new school etc she promises Adele this time will be different and so Adele makes a new group of friends but it isn't long till her mother falls ba

Review: The Adoration of Jenna Fox - Mary E. Pearson

  Looking for one of teen's earliest look into Sci-fi and AI ?   Review: The Adoration of Jenna Fox - Book #1 Fox Series - Mary E. Pearson - April 2008 Years ago, reading books about Futuristic societies and cyberpunk wasn't very popular so when The Adoration of Jenna Fox came out I read it and loved the concept. Just recently at the library , we received Book #2 in this series, so since it had been like yonks since I had read The Adoration of Jenna Fox, I thought I would give it another go. The Adoration of Jenna Fox is a book that is a cross between Meg Cabot's Airhead, Being Nikki series and Robin Wasserman's Frozen etc - Lila's story. This story reads of Jenna Fox whom at seventeen as re-awoken from being in a coma for a year , however things feel strange as she can't remember bits of her past and so Jenna goes searching but what she will discover will be more stranger than reality. As "the" Jenna Fox is only really 10% of her pas
