Mercy by Rebecca Lim

Mercy is an angel with scattered memories.  She is doomed to return endlessly to earth, taking on a new human form each time. In her dreams, though, she meets her old love who tells her to find him.

This time she wakes up on a school bus bound for Paradise.

In Paradise, Mercy meets Ryan, an eighteen-year-old whose sister was kidnapped two years ago and is presumed dead. When another girl is also taken, Mercy knows she has to act quickly and use  her extraordinary powers to rescue her, even if it means exposing her true identity.

 

I loved this book.  The storyline was unique and Mercy was a lovable character.  I thoroughly enjoyed Mercy and would recommend it.

I read the second book which is just as good as the first book but the library doesn’t have the rest of the books in the series.  Nooooo. The horror of it.  I will most likely have to buy the rest of the series since I need to find out what happens to Mercy and Ryan.

I would rate this book 5/5

    

Kiss Of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

 

Princess Lia is forced into an arranged marriage. Unwilling to go through with it she and her friend run away to a small sea village where they find work and try to live normal lives among the common folk. When two strangers arrive, the prince and an assassin sent by Venda to kill her, deceptions swirl and lies abound. As bounty hunters are sent to find her, Lia struggles to find perilous secrets that could unravel her world, even as she feels herself falling in love.

I adored this book.  The author’s writing style is unique and she tricks us into believing one thing is true when it is actually the opposite for like half the book.  I can’t can’t can’t wait to read the next book in the series especially if it is as good as the Kiss Of Deception.

I couldn’t stop reading this book. Every chance I got I had my nose buried in it. I would totally reread this.  Kiss of Deception is a MUST read.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Mare’s world is divided by blood.  People with silver blood are gods with abilities that make them higher than the common population of reds.

Mare has a silver gift ,despite the fact that she came from a dirt poor red family, that cannot be explained.  As a result the King makes her a silver princess to hide who she truly is.  As a rebellion rises like a new dawn Mare must figure out who are her friends and enemies are and how to survive court intrigue while hiding her identity at every turn for fear of discovery.   With the two princes pitted against each other Mare must decide whose side she is on and if the sacrifices made are worth it in the end.

 

This book was phenomenal and I would definitely read it.  I loved Mare, the main character who continued on against all odds.  She never knew what to expect around the corner where death could be lurking but she still persevered.

I can’t wait to read the sequel and see how Mare’s story continues.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Hannah Baker killed herself but before she died she sent out tapes to thirteen people telling of how their interactions with her led to her demise.

Clay liked Hannah and when he recieves the tapes he is shocked and saddened.  He soon dives into the complicated people around him and how Hannah was negatively impacted by their actions amd how maybe just.. maybe he could of saved her.

 

This book is absolutely terrible.  We learn nothing of the main character ,Clay, except that he has a garage, his mom likes milkshakes, and he learns how to ride the bus.  Hannah turns out to be a selfish girl who sends out tapes for revenge.  In the end we hate all the characters and never ever want to read this book again.

I would not suggest reading this and I sincerely hope this helped.
