The Boy on Cinnamon Street


See my Review on Goodreads;
The Boy on Cinnamon Street

    7th grader Louise should be the captain of her school's gymnastics team - but she isn't. She's fun and cute and should have lots of friends - but she doesn't. And there's a dreamy boy who has a crush on her - but somehow they never connect. Louise has everything going for her - so what is it that's holding her back?

Phoebe Stone tells the winning story of the spring when 7th grader Louise Terrace wakes up, finds the courage to confront the painful family secret she's hiding from - and finally get the boy. 

Three stars. * * *
This book is like a Pay Day.
You have an inkling that your craving that little something. (We know this well, ladies.) Something a little sweet, a little salty. 
You tasted it, you liked it; salty and sweet, you devour it, and you keep eating it until it's all gone. Gone. Gone. 
And then you think, "Yep. OK. I don't have to eat another pay Day until Easter. Or month." 

BOY ON CINNAMON STREET by Phoebe Stone was like a pay day. 
Salty. "Kept you reading, wanting to find out more." 
Sweet. "the feels, guys ,the feels." 
Yet you think again, "It was a cute little read. Fast. The writing was...knifty. OK- onto a thriller."

It's not like this book wasnt good. Like i said, It is like a Pay day. You eat it once in awhile and you're good. You dont eat it -or read it or any other book like it- for a long time. 
No Offence Ms. Stone.

Crown of Midnight (throne of Glass #2)

"An assassin’s loyalties are always in doubt.But her heart never wavers.
After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king's contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown – a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes.
Keeping up the deadly charade—while pretending to do the king's bidding—will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she's given a task that could jeopardize everything she's come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon -- forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice.

Where do the assassin’s loyalties lie, and who is she most willing to fight for?"

Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Mass.
Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2)I had no qualms about the first book. It was about a bad ass assassin whom had a love triangle. I''m not one for love triangles.
And her character....
1. She's an assassin. I loved the way Sarah made her different and how the assassin loves clothes and looking pretty.
But to make her so... Narcissistic?
Not cool, man. 
Actually, let me clarify. In one instance she's all goody-goody. The next shes; touch-me-I-will kill-you- and-stuff-you-in-a-casket.
So there are two sides to her.
What I didn't like was that (other than her narcissism) she didn't really like making decisions for herself. She was always, "Is this going to work?"
"Will this be OK?"
and, "Will someone be mad at me?" 

And there are five six books.
I know. So six books to keep the book series going, to keep it stretched long enough for six books.
No qualms.
Except, when I read the second book. Halfway through I wanted to stop and tear my eyeballs out of my head. So why would I want to read the next four books? I wouldn't.
What aggravated me the most was the love triangle. Like I said, I'm not much for them anyway. *shrug, Shrug*  I don't think I'm going to read the rest of this series.

The Heat....

The Heat
Rated (R)
Genere- Quicky, Funny, Comedy, Action

 An uptight FBI Special Agent is paired with a foul-mouthed Boston cop to take down a ruthless drug lord.

Who doesnt like a movie with Sandra Bullock and Mallisa McCarthy? Certainley not me.
This is quircky, funny, absolutley action packed, ect. Which makes this good for both Male and Female viewers. Throught the whole movie you're laughing and by the end of it- well you better hope for a cough drop and tissues. You'll be rollin' laughing with tears in you're eyes and a sore throat from laughing so hard.
"Nough said."

Throne Of Glass by Sarah J. Mass

First off, there is one thing you notice when you look at this awesome book cover. And no it's not the awesome font.
It's the bad ass woman you see, holding knives cleavers and wearing tight black clothing.
Who wouldn't want to read this?
I mean, duh.

“We all bear scars,... Mine just happen to be more visible than most.” 
― Sarah J. MaasThrone of Glass

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another.

Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined...

In this epic thriller an assasin kills for the king. She meets new people and her perspective on everything changes. She has to win.
She has to survive.
It was a page turner for me. Everything about it was fast paced and utterly.... HUGE. Her personality was amusing and her relationships were... humorous. Funny.
I loved it!
But only you can judge a book for we all have different opinions.
Now that I have splurged and told you the good news, handing you a cherry piece of pie here's the parts that agravvated me:
1. Dorian. He's the prince. You would think he would be smarter than he is? though Sarah J. Mass did a good job on making him different than any other of those pale faces prince's out there.
2. Chaol. how in the world-? never mind. he just needs to... how do I put this? Hmm. he needs to tell himself how much he likes her. Already. Get on with it.
ut I do urge you
   to read it.
I give this book 5 stars!! *****

can't wait to read the next ones....

Heres an Awesome site to visit.
