Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Hello again everyone, this week we will be looking at Everneath by Brodi Ashton. Have to say I was looking forward to this book before it came out and I was happy to finally read it. So without further delay let's dive in! Meet Nikki, who has just come back from a 100 year feed in the Everneath. What is that you ask? Well, every 100 years or so these special people that come from the magical world of the Everneath have to feed on a vessel for another 100 years to get a longer life. They do this every 100 years and they continue doing it until they die, which is never I believe.  But 100 years in the Everneath is only 6 months on Earth, and Nikki wasn't a vessel. She was a scared girl going through a lot of trouble who ran away from home and right into the hands of Cole, someone in need of a feeder. But something went wrong in the feed, and Nikki survived, being the only person ever to do it besides the current Queen. And don't you bet Cole wants everything to do with

Happy Holidays from K's Teen Book Review

Hey everyone, it is that time of year again and you know what that means! So no matter where you live, have a happy holiday season, even if you don't celebrate any holidays this time of year. Be safe and jolly come the new year and for those living in Icy climates like me, drive safe and cautious. No one needs an accident in these merry times. Remember to spend lots of time with your family too. But if you aren't, it might also be a good time to curl up by the fire with a nice book... nudge, nudge, wink, wink. I intend to continue writing reviews for those book lovers out there, and I hope that you can take this time to enjoy yourself in as safe a way as possible. So as someone who celebrates Christmas, Merry Christmas, but also from someone who respects all other traditions, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza, and happy Holidays no matter what you celebrate. K, out.

Need by Carrie Jones

Hey everyone, sorry that I have been missing for the past couple weeks but with the holidays here I am back again! Today is Monday and I will be continuing to upload my reviews every Monday leading into the New Year and so on. So I read Need a while ago and I believe I even did a review for one of the later books in the series, which I regret because looking back on it I shouldn't have been posting any reviews for books that are not the first in a series. It isn't fair to those who haven't read the first books and it might give away spoilers. So I thought I would go back and do the review to this one, because it was truly a good series. Meet Zara, who has been sent to live with her grandmother after her father dies of a heart attack. Living with her tends to be a struggle because she has to transition from the sunny beaches of her home town to the always snowy small town where there are not many people living. There she meets Nick, a boy with strange secrets, Izzie a

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Hey everyone, just finished reading a classic "Wuthering Heights" for my English class. Normally I wouldn't do a book I did for class for a review but I thought I would change it up a bit. Basically this book is separated into two different stories containing generation one and generation two. In generation one we meet Cathy, Heathcliff and Linton who's lives are mixed together from the Heights where Cathy and Heathcliff live to the Grange where Linton lives.  Throughout the story it is told from the point of view of the housekeeper Nelly Dean who watches Cathy struggle as she grows. She has to make the choice between marrying the man she truly loves, and marrying for money and a strong and promising future for her family. The choice she makes will either make or break her. In the second part of the story, also told from Nelly's point of view, we meet Cathy's daughter, Cathy (don't ask) and we learn about how she struggles after the choices her moth

Dear Canada Diaries

Hey everyone! Now this post is going to be a bit different then what you all are used to. Normally I would show you a picture of the book I read, tell you a bit about it, and then rate it. But today I am going to tell you about a series, not at all related, but at the same time, has a lot to do with each other. It is called the 'Dear Canada' series. Each book, and there are a lot of them, has a different writer, and a different story from the perspective of either a little girl or a little boy. From book to book they are in the form of a Diary from the children's point of view of events that changed Canada greatly. The first one I read took place during the Halifax explosion, and described from the little girl's perspective how she loses her family, and how she suffers with her town. There are others such as the Polio epidemic, the Flu Epidemic, The Titanic, The Underground Railroad, and so on. If you love history, which I do very much, than this is a series you sh
