So I liked it - but I don't think it lives up to the hype. I love that someone stepped out of the expected formula for storytelling. But the story fell a little flat. Night Film by Marisha Pessl: Book Cover
Night Film by Marisha Pessl. When the daughter of a mysterious cult-horror film director commits suicide, journalist Scott McGrath investigates her father and her untimely death. The last time McGrath investigated the director, he lost his job and his marriage. This time, he might lose even more. A fantastic literary thriller for fans of Stephen King & Gillian Flynn!
Night Film--When the daughter of a cult horror film director is found dead in an abandoned Manhattan warehouse, investigative journalist Scott McGrath, disbelieving the official suicide ruling, probes into the strange circumstances of the young woman's death.

Books Worth Reading
Book: Night Film: A Novel Author: Marisha Pessl Genre: Historical Fiction Publisher/Publish Date: Milkweed Editions / September 3, 2013 Source: ARC courtesy of publisher Pages: 256 Rating: 3.5/5 GoodReads • Amazon (This post may be a bit spoilery, sorry.) Creepy. Gripping. Insightful. Gritty. After a wrong turn in an investigation into the mysterious life of cult-horror-film director Cordova leaves him disgraced, Journalist Scott McGrath hoped he has left that story behind for good. But the suicide of his daughter Ashley draws him back into his investigation. His search leads him to meet two witnesses, that become part of his team, and the story leads him on a journey through belief and unbelife. McGrath risks a lot in search of the truth, which in turn he may never be able to find. I was attracted to this book because of it's use of images, and screen shots of web pages, and other "interactive" elements. They never came off as gimmicky, but actually enhance the story. (see the reviews on GoodReads for photos of the inside pages). Though I wasn't expecting the novel to be so dark, including satanic rituals, mysterious bridges, and lots of twisted characters. I'm still a little uncertain about how I feel about this book. I was enraptured by it, finishing the 580 page novel in just a few days. And though the book tried to have a clear take away, I'm not sure if I got that personally from reading the book. I felt that while the tone of the book wavered from comical (i.e. buddy cop) to way intense and creepy, plot plows a consistent path that never wavers. But maybe this is more like life. There are funny moments, and there are scary moments. My favorite part was the first 2/3rds of the novel. I just wasn't satisfied with the ending. I didn't feel like much was truly answered. I'm really interested in reading her other book Special Topics in Calamity Physics. Anyone read that? What did you think? Anyone else think this could make a really great movie? Now I'm off to go read a fun and light-hearted book to cleans my palette (and mind). What did you think of Night Film?

My Review: Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris Welcome to Midnight Crossroad a witty new series from Charlaine Harris. We are introduced to the small town of Midnight, Texas with its unique and semi-isolated populace. The characters are eccentric, fun, and “for the most part” out for the benefit of their neighbors. It is a close knit community and when one of their own is found murdered the town’s people come together to solve the mystery. I can’t say I was riveted to this story but I did get rather caught up in this small town’s happenings. Harris has created this very entertaining plot with fresh new characters for us to enjoy. She also adds her trade mark paranormal flare to a few of the town’s occupants while also giving us the “normal everyday human” ability to relate and interact with the moral and ethical differences between the species. A great story, a peculiar little town and lots of secrets makes for a very enjoyable read.

The outsiders is one of my favorite books/ movies. This best shows how important family really is in its own way. At least that is one way that I see it.

The Outsiders. My favorite book of all time, and the only real book that I have truly enjoyed reading. The movie I really don't remember if I have seen it or not but I need to watch it. It's a great story and is the truth behind what a family is to me.

A heroic story of friendship and belonging No one ever said life was easy. But Ponyboy is pretty sure that hes got things figured out. He knows that he can count on his brothers, Darry and Sodapop. And he knows that he can count on his friends—true friends who would do anything for him, like Johnny and Two-Bit. And when it comes to the Socs—a vicious gang of rich kids who enjoy beating up on greasers like him and his friends—he knows that he can count on them for trouble. But one night someone takes things too far, and Ponyboys world is turned upside down... Written over forty-five years ago, The Outsiders is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction. S. E. Hintons classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was first published. The Outsiders transformed young-adult fiction from a genre mostly about prom queens, football players and high school crushes to one that portrayed a darker, truer world. —The New York Times Taut with tension, filled with drama. —The Chicago Tribune [A] classic coming-of-age book. —Philadelphia Daily News What its like to live lonely and unwanted and cornered by circumstance...There is rawness and violence here, but honest hope, too. —National Observer A New York Herald Tribune Best Teenage Book A Chicago Tribune Book World Spring Book Festival Honor Book An ALA Best Book for Young Adults Winner of the Massachusetts Childrens Book Award
Takes me back to my Lurlene McDaniel days. If I Stay is a story of a girl who has to decide whether to live or die. It's quick, simple, and rather well written. Definitely a great read for a teen girl with a book obsession.

Scene: Tana lives in America in the near future. Unfortunately, this future involves a nasty vampirism plague that has set the country into a panic. Vampires and those newly infected are quarantined into their own cities called coldtowns. One morning after a house party, Tana wakes up to find all of the other party goers dead or infected from a vampire attack. Fearing that she may have been infected herself, she reluctantly teams up with her ex-boyfriend and a brooding-but-possibly-decent vampire named Gabriel to travel to a Coldtown. If she manages to make it there, she will have to choose to wait it out and remain human or to turn into what she fears most. Raves: I did not dive into The Coldest Girl in Coldtown unaware of how utterly amazing Holly Black is. I may have only read one of her other books (plus a few short stories) but I have followed her career for the past several years. If you don't want to be best friends with Holly Black then you probably don't know who she is. What I love the most about Black is the way she is able to balance darkness and humor. Her knack for interesting plots and characterizations seems so effortless because she obviously loves the kinds of stories she produces as much as her readers do. She produces “edgy” without making it seem as though she’s just throwing in all of the sex/drugs/rock n’ roll in order to produce shock. So. Because I feel that Black is one of those magical authors who writes for young adults rather than at them, I would recommend this book to a teen library patron without hesitation. Rants: That being said, I personally found Coldtown hard to get through simply due to my disinterest in vampire books (Yes, I read too many of them seven years ago during my Twilight honeymoon phase. No, I don’t want to talk about it). Much of Coldtown focuses on the social issues and mechanics regarding vampirism. Passages detailing the society bordered dangerously into "info dump" territory for me. But maybe it simply seemed that way to me due to my aggressive reluctance to read about vampire lore. Review: Thankfully, Tana was an interesting and strong character. This made her journey a pleasure to read. I believe Black succeeded in providing a fresh take on this genre by presenting vampires as more terrifying than romantic. Gavriel was a great example of this balance. He was a romantic interest for Tana, yet remained unapologetically violent and scary. Ultimately, Black wrote a smart story with great characters, succeeding in entertaining a reader who normally avoids horror or vampire books. 3.5 out of 5 fangs Page Cliques: Other vampire or plague-ish books that won't suck you dry of your sanity: Sunshine by Robin McKinley Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore Peeps by Scott Westerfeld

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. Such an amazing book!!
The 5th Wave book cover
Welcome to part two of “Books I’ve Neglected to Read,” here are three more books on my shelves that I haven’t gotten the chance to read as of yet. Dorothy Must Die by Daniel…
But if I’m it, the last of my kind, the last page of human history, like hell I’m going to let the story end this way. I may be the last one, but I am the one still standing. I am the one turning to face the faceless hunter in the woods on an abandoned highway. I am the one not running but facing. Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity. And if this is humanity’s last war, then I am the battlefield. Earlier this year, I happened to meet the editor of Rick Yancey's The 5th Wave at the ALA Midwinter Meeting. I'm not exaggerating when I say that she accosted me, and forced The 5th Wave into my hands, despite my protests that I'm not really a science fiction reader and that I had major burnout on post-apocalyptic/dystopian novels.She promised that this one was different, that this wasn't like those other books, that if I liked character-driven stories with lots of moral conundrums, I'd love this book (she clearly had my number on those counts). Then, because I was probably still looking doubtful, she told me that The 5th Wave was her favorite book she'd worked on. There was something that told me that this wasn't a line, that she she loved this book that much. Just a few days later, my curiosity got the best of me and I cracked open The 5th Wave. Let's just say, I never bring print books with me, instead relying on my ereader or Kindle app to read on the go. However, my review copy of The 5th Wave went everywhere with me while I was reading it--it's simply that excellent. The 5th Wave opens after aliens have invaded and attacked Earth. First, electricity was destroyed with an electromagnetic pulse; then the coasts were enveloped by rising seas; next, an Ebola-like plague wiped out much of the population; then, what were effectively alien sleeper cells were activated, and the few remaining humans can't trust anyone. I know what you're thinking: Another post-apocalyptic novel? The 5th Wave isn't just another post-apocalyptic novel. It's it's character-driven, it's complexly-plotted, it's frightening. While The 5th Wave is written in multiple points-of-view, Cassie, the teen narrator of the largest chucks of the novel, is the character whose voice will likely receive the most attention. She's one of the few who's managed to stay alive during the invasion, but not without a high, high cost. She lost her mother to the third wave (the viral infection), her father in the fourth wave and her younger brother is now missing--Cassie is alone in the world, dodging snipers and making life and death decisions in order to survive.

Project Cain by Geoffrey Girard Series: N/A (Though there is an adult companion novel) Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers Format: Hardcover Pages: 368 Source: Purchased Fifteen-year-old Jeff Jacobson had never heard of Jeffrey Dahmer, the infamous serial killer who brutally murdered seventeen people more than twenty years ago. But Jeff’s life changes forever when the man he’d thought was his father hands him a government file telling him he was constructed in a laboratory only seven years ago, part of a top-secret government cloning experiment called ‘Project CAIN’. There, he was created entirely from Jeffrey Dahmer’s DNA. There are others like Jeff—those genetically engineered directly from the most notorious murderers of all time: The Son of Sam, The Boston Strangler, Ted Bundy . . . even other Jeffrey Dahmer clones. Some raised, like Jeff, in caring family environments; others within homes that mimicked the horrific early lives of the men they were created from. When the most dangerous boys are set free by the geneticist who created them, the summer of killing begins. Worse, these same teens now hold a secret weapon even more dangerous than the terrible evil they carry within. Only Jeff can help track the clones down before it’s too late. But will he catch the ‘monsters’ before becoming one himself? Let's start off by reading the description shall we? Sounds amazing right? That was the same thought I had when I first read it. Starting the book however I quickly realized that wouldn't be the case. I had to pretty much force myself to even finish this book despite my love for serial killer related things. The info-dumping was a huge turn off for me. It was pile upon pile of information just shoved at you and some of it I really didn't think mattered too much, case in point there was a whole section where Jeff talks about the likes and dislikes of a man. And then when the information wasn't be thrown at you Jeff had very little clue about anything. Stuff about his dad? No clue. The laboratory? No clue. Nothing at all. It was frustrating and really made the story hard to get through and choppy. I disliked Jeff. I really did, for a Jeffrey Dahmer clone you'd think he wouldn't be so boring right? Wrong. I had absolutely no connection to him besides the fact that he liked to read. He was of no use to Castillo for the first half of the book and just kept wondering why his dad wouldn't talk to him while there were serial killer clones running around murdering families. The only two who made the book somewhat interesting were Castillo and Ox. They had all of these conspiracies about the government and what was going on. This book had so much potential but just seemed like a watered down version of Criminal Minds for me. I was expecting awesome serial killers and gore and violence but there wasn't much of anything. It seemed to mostly revolve around Jeff not knowing much of anything and Castillo trying to catch the clones.
This was one of my favorite books when I was younger.

How To Love | Katie Cotugno | Book Review
How to Love: Katie Cotugno Oct 2013
Book Twenty One - How to Love by Katie Cotugno "I can't," I shoot back, but even as the words come out I can hear my voice to start to break. I don't want to cry-crying now is going to make me look crazy, is going to undermine everything I'm trying to say - but I can't help it. I'm so hugely tired of carrying all of this inside of me, all my guilt and anger and loneliness. I can't do it anymore. It's too much. Before: Reena Montero has loved Sawyer LeGrande for as long as she can remember: as natural as breathing, as endless as time. But he's never seemed to notice that Reena even exists until one day, impossibly, he does. Reena and Sawyer fall in messy, complicated love. But then Sawyer disappears from their humid Florida town without a word, leaving a devastated-and pregnant-Reena behind. After: Almost three years have passed, and there's a new love in Reena's life: her daughter, Hannah. Reena's gotten used to being without Sawyer, and she's finally getting the hang of this strange, unexpected life. But just as swiftly and suddenly as he disappeared, Sawyer turns up again. Reena doesn't want anything to do with him, though she'd be lying if she said Sawyer's being back wasn't stirring something in her. After everything that's happened, can Reena really let herself love Sawyer LeGrande again? My Thoughts : When I read the story line, I was so intrigued. I loved that Reena (the main character) had two stories happening at the same time. It was interesting to read about Reena's life leading up to finding out she was pregnant, while at the same time, reading about how she is dealing with life almost three years later. There were a couple twists and turns with this book, but overall, I found them more frustrating then anything. Twice in this book Reena stood up for herself then BAM! It was followed by something bad. I felt like telling the author to give this girl a break or she will never stand up for herself again. Reena is such an amazing and well written character. All her dreams were put on hold when she found out she was pregnant, yet, I think she dealt with it really well. This was a girl that was so in love with a guy who disappeared the day she found out (he didn't know she was pregnant.) I could see her maturity while reading this book, yet at the same time, I could see her innocence as well. I was so happy when she finally found her voice. I was, however, super frustrated with one decisions she made regarding a certain boy. The problem, I had, with this book was Sawyer. You either love him or you hate him. Unfortunately, I did not like him. He was such a jerk. He was selfish and extremely annoying. I fully believe Sawyer will make or break this book for you. Overall, this book does deal with a very real issue that I haven't read about in other books - teen pregnancy. I did enjoy the book but wasn't wowed by it. I think if you enjoy a contemporary with a bit more depth and drama, then this is a good book for you. image from goodreads

Day 22- 30 Day Maze Runner Challenge- My favorite book of the three- The Scorch Trials: I think this book is when my true obsession with this series started, plus I think this book has the best part of the story. ( I would say Death Cure...but ya know.... People who read the book would get why)
The Scorch Trials by James Dashner. For fans of The Hunger Games. Second book in The Maze Runner series.
The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner, Book 2) by James Dashner. The second book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series. The Maze Runner is now a major motion picture featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster!
The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner Series #2) by James Dashner A gripping continuation of Maze Runner. Unlike most second books, I felt this one was not used as stepping stone for the story but as an integral part. Extremely enjoyable and I cannot wait for the next one. 1/19/2014

The Scorch Trials by James Dashner Book 2 in the Maze Runner Trilogy 360 pages Published 2010, Ember Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian, Science Fiction My Rating: 3.5/5 Normally with trilogies, I find the second book to be the most difficult to get through because they generally lag. The Scorch Trials had the same fast pace…
