Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

emergency contactTitle: Emergency Contact

Author: Mary H.K. Choi

Genre: YA, Contemporary

Publisher: Simon Schuster Books

Release Date: March 27th, 2018

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Goodreads Summary: For Penny Lee high school was a total nonevent. Her friends were okay, her grades were fine, and while she somehow managed to land a boyfriend, he doesn’t actually know anything about her. When Penny heads to college in Austin, Texas, to learn how to become a writer, it’s seventy-nine miles and a zillion light years away from everything she can’t wait to leave behind.

Sam’s stuck. Literally, figuratively, emotionally, financially. He works at a café and sleeps there too, on a mattress on the floor of an empty storage room upstairs. He knows that this is the god-awful chapter of his life that will serve as inspiration for when he’s a famous movie director but right this second the seventeen bucks in his checking account and his dying laptop are really testing him.

When Sam and Penny cross paths it’s less meet-cute and more a collision of unbearable awkwardness. Still, they swap numbers and stay in touch—via text—and soon become digitally inseparable, sharing their deepest anxieties and secret dreams without the humiliating weirdness of having to see each other.

This contemporary, is so unlike the others.

When you read this book you can notice one thing above everything else and that’s how much work Mary H.K. Choi put into each and every single character mentioned in the book. You know what they look like, their personality, their quirks, everything.

At first, the writing bothered me a little bit, but it’s her first novel, but as the book went along, it got so much better and I didn’t even notice it anymore.

Plus, very biased of me, since I love texting in books, but I loved the texting in this book. The whole emergency contact thing was amazing and I love how it progressed along. Plus, Sams life really went to shit there for a second, I’m glad he had Penny to talk to.

I loved the setting of this book, I feel like we hardly get any books set in Texas, plus I liked how we had various types of financial states in the story. Normally in books they’re all on the same level except for one friend (never the main character) who’s either super poor or super rich. That added another level to the story as well as their heritage, everyone had this background to them instead of being plain.

I feel like people should pick this book up, definitely, because it really stands out from other YA books (at least I think so) plus, the story has amazing progression and the character development is real and it dives into real, hard hitting topics but it deals with them amazingly. I really loved the book 🤗🤗

Finished Friday: April 2018

Although school is very stressful and a lot of stuff is going on right now, I still managed to find the time to actually read? What? Who am I? I usually neglect reading when exam season is upon me, but not this time. I feel like I’m also trying to stack up on books for book reviews, because May is going to be 10x more stressful than April. So let’s jump right in.

fangirlspecial2Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: Finished April 9th

Goodreads Summary: Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…

But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words… And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

This was my 4th time reading this book, I could easily go for a couple more times, I literally have to stop myself from picking the book up again, I love it that much.

the cruel princeThe Cruel Prince by Holly Black: Finished April 16th

Goodreads Summary:

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

I hated this book. My review went up on Monday if you want to hear more of my thoughts on the book.

I really loved this book. I ate it up in two days, which is honestly insane. My review for this will be going up on Monday.

leah on the offbeatLeah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli: Finished April 21st

Goodreads Summary: Leah Burke—girl-band drummer, master of deadpan, and Simon Spier’s best friend from the award-winning Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda—takes center stage in this novel of first love and senior-year angst.

When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat—but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. An anomaly in her friend group, she’s the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends—not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.

So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high. It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting—especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.

I feel kind of iffy about this book, I loved the characters, and the setting, I loved a lot, but it was more so the things that lacked that bothered me.

under rose tainted skiesUnder Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall: Finished April 24th

Goodreads Summary:At seventeen, Norah has accepted that the four walls of her house delineate her life. She knows that fearing everything from inland tsunamis to odd numbers is irrational, but her mind insists the world outside is too big, too dangerous. So she stays safe inside, watching others’ lives through her windows and social media feed.

But when Luke arrives on her doorstep, he doesn’t see a girl defined by medical terms and mental health. Instead, he sees a girl who is funny, smart, and brave. And Norah likes what he sees.

Their friendship turns deeper, but Norah knows Luke deserves a normal girl. One who can walk beneath the open sky. One who is unafraid of kissing. One who isn’t so screwed up. Can she let him go for his own good—or can Norah learn to see herself through Luke’s eyes?

So different from the usual books I read, I really really enjoyed it.

So, these are the books I was able to get to in April. I’m really proud of myself for being able to read so much. I remember a time a couple of years ago where I was able to read 10 books a month, without a problem, but then I also remember a time where I couldn’t make the time to read because I kept being caught up in school, so I’m really happy with where I’m at now. 🤗🤗

WWW Wednesday: April 25th, 2018

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over on Taking On A World Of Words.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Current Reading: I can’t believe it, it’s finally time to read Illuminae. I’ve hardly started it, and although there’s a lot going on I feel like I understand what’s happening. There are a lot of spaceships and stuff, but I think I’m slowly getting the hang of it. Plus, I was really iffy on the whole it not having a real book type structure, but I really enjoy it and I know what’s going on.

Recently Finished: I finished Leah on the Offbeat on Friday and I reeeeeally enjoyed it, it was amazing. Some parts bothered me a little bit, but all in all it was really good. I just can’t believe the Simonverse is over.

I also finished Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall. I picked it up completely on a whim, and finished it within a matter of hours. I thought it was awesome.

Next Read: It’s happening, the release is so near, after Illuminae, I will pick up ACOFAS, I’M SO READY FOR THIS!!!

That’s it for my WWW Wednesday. What about you, what are you reading? 🤗🤗

🏷 I Spy Book Challenge 🏷

Wow, who would have guessed that someone would actually tag me to do a book tag? Over here on my blog I just post tags because I think they’re fun and if you think they’re cool, you should definitely do them too, but for the first time ever on my blog, I was tagged by Jasmine’s Reading Blog to do the I Spy Book Challenge so let’s just dive right into it. Here are the rules for this challenge:

Find a book that contains (either on the cover or in the title) an example for each category. You must have a separate book for all 20, get as creative as you want and do it within five minutes!!

Food

what to say next Julie Buxbaum

Do drinks count as food? I’d say so. As you can see, there are two shakes and What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum is one of the best books out there, it does not disappoint.

Transportation

the lost hero.jpg

This might be a little bit of a stretch, but throughout the series they do rely very heavily on Festus (the dragon) to get them from point A to point B.

Weapon

throne of glass

As you can see, she’s got the whole blades going on at her sides, plus I feel like the majority of the Throne of Glass books she’s got a weapon in her hand.

Animal

the unexpected everything

The little doggos! I loved the fact that she ended up being a dog walker, it’s so cute. The entire book is cute let’s be real.

Number

november 9

I haven’t read this yet, but there’s a 9 in the title. Plus, I don’t know if I’ll ever pick it up. 🤷

Something you read

autoboyography

Yes though, this book is amazing. You feel all the feels, it’s great.

Body of water

harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban

In my edition, you can see the lake, which is a body of water.

Product of fire

kingdom of ashh

This is a little bit of a stretch since it’s not out yet, but ash is a product of fire.

Royalty

the cruel prince

I really hate talking about The Cruel Prince but there’s royalty in the title and a crown on the cover but I don’t like itttt.

Architecture

there's someone inside your house

I haven’t read this yet and I’m not particularly interested in it since it doesn’t have the best reviews and it’s not the typical genre that I reach for, but never say never.

Clothing

simon vs the homo sapiens agenda cover

You know, you can only see his clothes, and it’s just so Simon.

Family member

Saga vol 1

There’s a whole family on this cover, and while looking for an answer for this question, it was actually really hard.

Time of day

almost midnight rainbow rowell

I noticed something, the one time of day that is used the most in titles is Midnight. Lady Midnight, Almost Midnight, Crown of Midnight, etc.

Music

tape

This is a lesser-known book, but I can’t really recommend it. You can get easily lost and after a while I was so confused I just stopped reading. 🤷

Paranormal being

truthwitch

I really need to pick up this series soon, I already own the first and second part, soon.

Occupation

the assassins blade

Being an assassin is an occupation, might not be the best one, but I feel like it has very high pay.

Season 

second chance summer

This book is beautiful and even though it’s very tear-jerking (I sobbed like I never sobbed before), it’s not just about the sadness.

Color

under rose tainted skies.jpg

I really like rose colored things, and I started Under rose-tainted skies, but I need to be in the right mood for it, since it’s pretty serious so far.

Celestial body

zodiac

I still have yet to read this book, but yay for stars.

Something that grows

whichwood

So this was my take on the I Spy Book Challenge, I honestly applaud anyone who managed to actually do it in 5 minutes, because there are just some challenges which really stumped me. If you thought this looked like something fun, you should definitely do it too. 🤗🤗

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

the cruel princeTitle: The Cruel Prince

Author: Holly Black

Genre: YA, Fantasy

Publisher: Little, Brown Books

Release Date: January 2nd, 2018

Rating: I can’t decide between One or Two stars.

Goodreads Summary:  Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

Get ready for a rant review, it’s been a while since I’ve posted one.

Now, I can totally understand why people like this story, it’s just personally I did not.

So, starting the book, it took me a while to get into it, but it’s the first part of a series and it needs time to build up and explain everything, which I completely understand, so I decided to look past that. I was expecting for it to get better, it just never did.

For me, I feel like there’s a good story behind it, but the execution wasn’t the best. The beginning of the book dragged on for too long, then all of these random things happened, then I had hope that I would enjoy the book more because I did for like 10 pages somewhere inbetween, I did not end up enjoying it more, something happened that was insanely rushed, then it dragged on again, and then the last 30 pages were the only ones I actually enjoyed. To an extent.

I wanted to DNF this book so many times but people kept talking about the ending and how unexpected it was, and I mean, I guess it kind of is, but it completely underwhelmed me. I did not care. I also do not particularly care to continue the series, I read the blurb for the second book, I have no interest in it.

I hated so many of the characters. Jude annoyed me so much, I hate Cardan in general but not even in a good hate kind of way. Everything is so weird and weird things kept happening that I just didn’t enjoy.

It’s very easy to please me as a reader, I’ve had such a good reading year, only 5 star and 4 star reads, and then this had to happen. I rave so much about books, but I truly believe that I luck out when it comes to books, but I just didn’t with this one. Maybe my expectations were too high, the hype train was a bit crazy, but I just hated it so much. I was talking to my friends about it in school today and I was like ‘I hate reading it, I hate every single second of it’ and today I had a free afternoon so I forced myself to sit down and finally finish the book because it was actually putting me into a reading slump which I did not appreciate.

A lot of people really enjoy this book and I’ve only seen good reviews for it everywhere, so many it’s good to also get a perspective of it from a person who didn’t enjoy it at all. There are so many other books that I would recommend for you to read, but I honestly feel like it’s just me that feels this way.

spoileralertbanner

Now, let’s get into the good part of a review, the spoilery bits. I did not like Cardan from point one. He literally threw her into a river, with her sister. She could have died. And then towards the end of the book they talk about the whole river throwing incident again and Cardan just shrugged it off saying ‘yeah, I knew you wouldn’t die, blah blah’, still he fucking pushed her into a river. I feel like Holly Black was trying to give him a redemption arc, in my eyes it sucked. And he justifies his behavior by being like ‘Oh yeah I like you and I can’t stop thinking about you’ and then they make out, wtf. The part that I liked the most is that although I hated that Jude was starting to like him, she hated herself so much for it. At least she wasn’t blindly in love with him, she was very cautious but you can’t control your heart.

Plus, every single relationship in this book feels forced. For the longest time I thought Locke was a son of the High King until like 100 pages later or something they mentioned he wasn’t and then all of the sudden he shows interest in Jude, it was pretty fucking weird. It felt so forced, I never thought that she actually liked him or anything, it just appeared out of no where and I was not a fan.

For the longest part the book dragged on, and then we finally get to the coronation. Sure, I expected something to happen to Dain, but boy Balekin really went all out. He literally killed so many of his siblings, it was insane. And it felt so rushed. The only part I really liked was where Jude decides to become a spy because I thought that gave the book a certain edge to it, since we hardly have any books where the character is a spy, but again, I felt like it was poorly executed. Plus she was a pretty crap spy. If she weren’t a main character she definitely would have been killed for her idiocy by trying to save that servant girl Sophie.

It also didn’t surprise me that much since the title of the sequel to this book is ‘The Wicked King’ I really fucking wonder what they could have been hinting at with that title, that Cardan ends up being the King. I saw so many things coming, which is a terrible sign since I never foreshadow things or guess correctly what’s going on, the only thing that I didn’t expect was that Oak was royal. I feel like everything other than that was underwhelming.

Plus, this book could have so easily been a standalone. Sometimes, I more so feel like the author is pushing for the story to go on, even though it’s already finished. ( I have the same kind of feeling when it comes to ACOTAR but atleast I liked the execution) It would have been kind of cool to have a standalone where this whole betrayal thing happens at the end and for me it would have been satisfactory enough, but Holly Black wove deals in any chance she got just to continue the series. I read the blurb for the second book, it already feels like a filler book. I don’t care to see where the series is going from here on out, I really hated the first one, I cannot even see myself reading the book.

I really did not expect myself to hate The Cruel Prince so much, and yet, here we are. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

📬 Books I Ordered Recently 📬

Hey everybody, since I don’t do book hauls because I don’t think I can make them look very good on the blog format, and I quite frankly don’t buy as many books, I thought it would be cool to update you on what I recently ordered.

illuminae.jpgIlluminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Goodreads Summary: This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it’s clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.

BRIEFING NOTE: Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

I can’t believe I finally picked this up. I remember seeing so many booktubers talk about receiving the arc for it at BEA, and it was like one of the first hardcover arcs or something. So, I’ve been here through the entirity of this series release, and I always wanted to pick it up, but now that the series is finished, I’m really excited to be getting to it. I have a hate love relationship with waiting for the next installment in series, and now that the entire series is out, what better time to finally get around to it?

acofasA Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas

Goodreads Summary (A Court of Thorns and Roses): Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

I ordered this a while ago, but I only ordered the regular edition. And then Sarah J. Maas announced special editions and usually those are only availibe for people who live in the U.S., but the special edition was also availible on Waterstones and I’m really excited for it to arrive.

Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertallileah on the offbeat

Goodreads Summary: Leah Burke—girl-band drummer, master of deadpan, and Simon Spier’s best friend from the award-winning Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda—takes center stage in this novel of first love and senior-year angst.

When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat—but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. An anomaly in her friend group, she’s the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends—not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.

So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high. It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting—especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.

I’m so excited for this book and the release is coming closer and closer every day. I can’t wait for this book, I love Becky Albertallis books she’s one of my favorite authors, all I feel is joy for this book.

emergency contactEmergency Contact by Mindy H.K. Choi

Goodreads Summary: For Penny Lee high school was a total nonevent. Her friends were okay, her grades were fine, and while she somehow managed to land a boyfriend, he doesn’t actually know anything about her. When Penny heads to college in Austin, Texas, to learn how to become a writer, it’s seventy-nine miles and a zillion light years away from everything she can’t wait to leave behind.

Sam’s stuck. Literally, figuratively, emotionally, financially. He works at a café and sleeps there too, on a mattress on the floor of an empty storage room upstairs. He knows that this is the god-awful chapter of his life that will serve as inspiration for when he’s a famous movie director but right this second the seventeen bucks in his checking account and his dying laptop are really testing him.

When Sam and Penny cross paths it’s less meet-cute and more a collision of unbearable awkwardness. Still, they swap numbers and stay in touch—via text—and soon become digitally inseparable, sharing their deepest anxieties and secret dreams without the humiliating weirdness of having to see each other.

Technically this book arrived already, but shh doesn’t matter. I’ve heard great things about this book, I’m super excited for the story, and my expectations are a little bit high so I need to dial them down a little when I can get around to it.

Save the Date by Morgan Matsonsave the date morgan matson

Goodreads Summary: Charlie Grant’s older sister is getting married this weekend at their family home, and Charlie can’t wait—for the first time in years, all four of her older siblings will be under one roof. Charlie is desperate for one last perfect weekend, before the house is sold and everything changes. The house will be filled with jokes and games and laughs again. Making decisions about things like what college to attend and reuniting with longstanding crush Jesse Foster—all that can wait. She wants to focus on making the weekend perfect.

The only problem? The weekend is shaping up to be an absolute disaster.

There’s the unexpected dog with a penchant for howling, house alarm that won’t stop going off, and a papergirl with a grudge.

There are the relatives who aren’t speaking, the (awful) girl her favorite brother brought home unannounced, and a missing tuxedo.

Not to mention the neighbor who seems to be bent on sabotage and a storm that is bent on drenching everything. The justice of the peace is missing. The band will only play covers. The guests are all crazy. And the wedding planner’s nephew is unexpectedly, distractingly…cute.

Over the course of three ridiculously chaotic days, Charlie will learn more than she ever expected about the family she thought she knew by heart. And she’ll realize that sometimes, trying to keep everything like it was in the past means missing out on the future.

The Queen of summer contemporaries is finally back for another book. I cannot tell you how excited I am for this book, it’s been so long since I’ve read a Morgan Matson book, I can’t believe the next one is finally coming out in June. I preordered my book off of amazon, and it said that if you preorder it you get a signed edition, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. I don’t really care if it’s signed or not, sure it would be cool to own a signed book by her, but I’m far more excited for the story.

So these are the books that I’ve recently ordered. When they arrive (along with two others), I will be at 199 books, and then I’m going to order Six of Crows because I kind of want it to be the 200th book that I own, but let’s just see if I have enough restraint to not buy another book until mid June. 🤗🤗

 

WWW Wednesday: April 18th, 2018

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over on Taking On A World Of Words.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Current Read: I’m ecstatic to say that I’m currently reading Leah on the Offbeat! Yeah, I preordered it to my local bookstore, and it arrived too early (this is the second time this has happened, I think I’m going to preorder all of my books there from now on). I’ve waited so long for this and I cannot believe that it’s in my hands and I can read it! Plus, I just found out that Love, Simon will be screening in Austria! I have to wait until to July, but I can’t wait to see it on the big screen!

fangirö.gif

Recently Finished: I have two books for this, which is insane. I’m a junior in highschool, it’s crazy with exams right now, but look at me go. I finished The Cruel Prince by Holly Black on Monday and my review will be going up on the 23rd. To put my thoughts into order quickly, I did not whatsoever enjoy the book and a rant review will be coming your way.

But, the other book I finished was Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi. I finished this book in two days. It’s addicting and beautiful and I really really loved it, my review for it will be up on the 30th.

Next Read: I don’t have any plans for a next read, I have no idea what I’ll pick up next. Maybe I’ll pick up a short book, like Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone, because I can’t be in the middle of something with the release of A Court of Frost and Starlight so near. 🤗 🤗
