Across the universe trilogy - Review

Available now.

What's it about?

A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder. 
Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.
Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone-one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship-tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.
Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there's only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.
 My review
Across the universe was an absolutely brilliant and imaginative series! Each book surpassed the next and had me hooked all the way through.
The first book follows both Amy and Elder's perspectives when she is awoken early from being cryogenically frozen, they end up coming together and discovering the mysteries of things that are going on on the ship, it was a completely unique novel, not like anything I have read before. The author really came up with an imaginative plot and setting that kept me guessing all the way through all three books, she had a wonderful way of keeping hold of the mystery while revealing little bits along the way so I didn't get bored of waiting to find out everything that was going on. I was totally on the edge of my seat throughout and found each book to be better than the last.
I don't want to say too much about books two and three because I don't want to spoil anything but I will say they are equally as compelling and gripping as the first and will keep you hanging onto every word.
There is a lot of character growth over the books for our two leads and I enjoyed watching them becoming stronger and coming together, it was a great match, I also loved that the author had done her research to make the things involved with the space craft believable so that the whole book felt feasible.
I really enjoyed it a lot and can't wait to check out Beth's new series when it comes out.

My thoughts on the cover
I know the first two aren't the covers that are out now but they're the ones I have and I like them, though I do like the new ones too, I love the stars and the couple looking out at them on the cover for A million suns. The foliage on the last cover is cool too and I do think it suits the book. They're all great covers.

Favourite quotes
'It's her hair that pulls me forward. It's so red. I've never seen red hair before, not outside of pictures, and the pictures never caught the vivacity of those burnished strands tangled in the ice.'

'Her kiss is soft and gentle, barely pressing against my bruised lips. There is sweetness in it, and innocence, and a promise.'

'"You came back to me," I say, my voice breaking over unshed tears of joy.
"I'll always come back to you," he tells me, pulling me close.'

Nail your books (7)

'Nail your books is a feature started by Cristina at The princess of storyland, where we share our book inspired manicures.

My latest manicure is inspired by The Across the universe trilogy by Beth Revis, I know there are a lot of covers for these books, but I love the ones that I have, which are pictured below, and while reading the books this week, I knew I wanted to emulate them on my nails. It was difficult to photograph the colours so I've posted lots of pictures for you guys this week.

Here's the covers
(Click on any of the images in this post to see them full sized)

And here's my nails

How to
Yup, the look took all of these colours!
  • Sally Hansen miracle cure base coat
  • Rimmel lycra pro Black pearl
  • Barry M Silvery lilac
  • Beauty UK Posh polish Intergalactic
  • Rimmel I love lasting finish Pop your pink
  • Barry M Gelly hi-shine Blackberry
  • Accessorize 3D glitter polish Magic
  • Rimmel I love lasting finish Disco ball
  • Barry M Matte white
  • Rimmel I love lasting finish Azure
  • Barry M Gelly hi-shine Dragon fruit
  • Accessorize 3D glitter polish Dream
  • Barry M Emerald green
  • Nail polish by HandM Lady luck
  • Models own gold nail art pen
  • Beauty UK green
  • Save the nail wet look top coat
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri
  • Nail dotter
  • Make-up sponge
- So, after first applying a base coat I painted my fingernails with the black pearl colour and my thumb nail with silvery lilac. Then I painted over the black with the Intergalactic glitter polish.

-Once that had completely dried, I used the make-up sponge to dab different colours onto my fingernails, to blend the colours together, check out this video tutorial for better instructions.

Here are the colours I used for each

-After I had dabbed on the colours onto my nails in a way the I liked I put on a thin layer of Rimmel disco ball glitter polish.

-Then for my thumbs, I used the same method to dab Emerald all around my nail so there was just silver in the middle, then I dabbed the darker green around the edges of that for a gradient effect.
-For the next step I used the gold striper/art pen to paint some lines that would form the branches for the plants, I used the nail dotter and yet another green to make leaves, dotting all around the 'branches.'

-Lastly I topped everything off with a wet look top coat for a super shiny effect and used Inst-dri to dry it quicker because I'm too impatient to stay still and wait for it to dry!

I'm soooo pleased with how this look came out, I've been wanting to give galaxy nails a try and these covers were the perfect inspiration, especially as I've spent so much time looking at them the last week and a half as I've been reading through the series which is awesome by the way!
As you can tell, I matched my little and ring finger to the original US Across the universe cover, although you can't see the purple too well, I should have used a lighter shade I think.
Then my middle and pointer fingers match the original US a million sons cover, I love how I managed to get in the little white galaxy and the pink and blue came out well.
My thumbs were hardest because dotting the leaves was difficult but I think I did a good job, although I think I went a bit overboard, I wanted to have more of the silvery lilac background showing through because I adore that colour.
This is definitely my favourite nail creation so far though!

UK vs THE WORLD (58)

UK vs. The world is a weekly meme I made up lol.
It's simlair to UK vs. US except the UK covers are battling it out with their foreign counterparts from all over the world, because who doesn't love judging books by their covers!

UK                       vs                       Greece
Across the universe book two.
('Ένα Εκατομμύριο Ήλιοι' translates to 'A million suns.' - According to Google translate.)

Mist: To be honest I'm not a fan of either of these covers but if I had to choose I'd pick the UK cover because its a lot more intereting, I really like the sun on the Greek cover but nothing about the rest of it, the UK cover at least has some mystery to it and has a sci-fi feel.

Ninfa: Although I'm not a mega fan of either, I do prefer the UK cover. It has a Sci-Fi/Fantasy feel to it and I love the mechanical effects around the centre of the cover, and the tunnel-like vision zooming into the characters.
The Greek version is a little too '70s-tastic for my taste, too graphic and not enough emotion. I do like the blazing sun in it, and the night sky view, but it doesn't really excite me much, it feels dated.
So UK wins this week for me :)

Geek girl - Review

Geek girl by Holly Smale 
Released 28th February 2013
What's it about? 
Harriet Manners knows a lot of things. She knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear, a "jiffy" lasts 1/100th of a second, and the average person laughs 15 times per day. What she isn't quite so sure about is why nobody at school seems to like her very much. So when she's spotted by a top model agent, Harriet grabs the chance to reinvent herself. Even if it means stealing her Best Friend's dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of the impossibly handsome supermodel Nick. Even if it means lying to the people she loves.

As Harriet veers from one couture disaster to the next with the help of her overly enthusiastic father and her uber-geeky stalker, Toby, she begins to realise that the world of fashion doesn't seem to like her any more than the real world did.

And as her old life starts to fall apart, the question is: will Harriet be able to transform herself before she ruins everything?
My review
Geek girl was such a great and funny novel, I really enjoyed it. Right from the start it had me giggling along to Harriet's outlook on everything, she sees the world in a unique way and all her random little facts were actually pretty interesting. She was a great character and reading the book so from her point of view made the book all the more enjoyable.
The story was straight forward and imaginative at the same time, with an interesting insight into the modelling world and some lovely little underlying morals too, such as you should always try to be yourself.
The secondary characters were wonderful too, I really liked Harriet's immature dad and the colourful Wilbur, they all added different dimensions to the book that made it hard to put down.
I was completely engrossed in the story right the way through and quickly found myself turning the last page.
I recommend Geek girl to any fans of the genre, its a light, funny YA contemporary novel and Im looking forward to further releases by this great debut author.

My thoughts on the cover
I really love the bright colours of this cover and the fun little doodles, the glasses are fun too, its a really eye catching cover.

Blog tour; Speechless - Author writing tips

Have you got any tips for aspiring writers?  

Everyone’s writing process is different. The great thing about writing is that there are no limits when it comes to ideas or experimentation. However, there are a few simple ways to make your writing stronger:
1.       Show, don’t tell. This is a basic idea, but it can be harder than it looks. Readers don’t want you to spell everything out about what a character is feeling—they want to experience it from the way a character behaves or what they say. If a girl is beautiful, don’t tell me she’s beautiful—describe what makes her beautiful so I can believe it.

2.       Don’t be afraid of the word “said”. Sometimes it’s good to use more descriptive words, but you’ll find that your dialogue goes much smoother without interjecting it with “she cried” or “she yelled” or “she announced” every other line.

3.       Character voice. Think of two friends you have, or two family members. Do they speak the same way? Probably not. Everyone has their own voice and mannerisms and sense of humor (or lack of!). Trying to differentiate your character voices in dialogue so they don’t all sound alike can do wonders for your character development.

4.       Read! A great way to learn about writing is to read the works of other writers you love. Read your favorite novels and try to think about why it is you love them so much. Is it the descriptions, the plots, the characters, the writing style? You can then try to apply what you love about other people’s writing to your own.

5.       Write every day, no matter what. Even if you feel you have nothing to say. Even if it’s just a sentence or two. The only way to become a better writer is to write, write, write!

Do you ever base your characters on people you know in real life?

I don’t base any of them on specific people. Certain dynamics I’ve had with family and friends sometimes inform the way my characters interact with each other. But whenever my family or friends plan to read, I have to reassure them that no, it’s not based on them! My sister still hasn’t read Saving June—I think she’s worried it’s about her, when it really isn’t!

Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can’t keep a secret

Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed.

Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she’s ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.

But there’s strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she’s done. If only she can forgive herself.

And the other, Jellicoe road by Melina Marchetta, I'm really excited about as I've had my eye on it for sometime, it only recently became available over here on Amazon but I won an Amazon US voucher a couple of weeks ago and knew straight away I would be getting this - I also ordered another book that hasn't arrived yet - I've heard nothing but great things about this book and can't wait to read it.

Scent of magic - Review

Healer book two.
Available now

What's it about?

As the last Healer in the Fifteen Realms, Avry of Kazan is in a unique position: in the minds of her friends and foes alike, she no longer exists. Despite her need to prevent the megalomanical King Tohon from winning control of the Realms, Avry is also determined to find her sister and repair their estrangement. And she must do it alone, as Kerrick, her partner and sole confident, returns to Alga to summon his country into battle.
Though she should be in hiding, Avry will do whatever she can to support Tohon’s opponents. Including infiltrating a holy army, evading magic sniffers, teaching forest skills to soldiers and figuring out how to stop Tohon’s most horrible creations yet; an army of the walking dead—human and animal alike and nearly impossible to defeat.
War is coming and Avry is alone. Unless she figures out how to do the impossible ... again.
My review
This review is a really hard one to write for me. Maria is my favourite author, I've never been disappointed by her books. Recently I guess I've been going through a bit of a reading slump, I've read a fair few books that weren't brilliant and its left me kind of exhausted, so I picked this up hoping my favourite author would bring me out of it and I could believe again that there are great books out there, but after taking eight days to read it because I just couldn't get into it I have to start wondering if its just me?
I mean so much happens in this book and the story progresses on at a good pace and with Maria's great writing, I should have been lost in this world but I just wasn't, I didn't like the dual point of views she's added, the short chapters and the mini cliffhangers at the end of each one and often times when I came back to one of the two characters, we'd done a little time jump to a week or two or more ahead, it made it difficult to get settled into the book.
Another problem, though it was completely my own fault, was that so much happened in book one which I had read thirteen months before, that I couldn't remember it all, I should have gone back for a re-read or skimmed it at least to refresh my memory because I spent so much of the start trying to figure out who people were and where we'd left off that I wasn't paying the book my full attention.
Like I said, the book goes at a great pace, it never stops, we're figuring out the mystery of the Lily's, Avry is becoming stronger as a character and the plot was great, when I reflect I know that a lot happened, there was plenty of action and no dull moments.
In theory this book should have been brilliant, yet somehow, at least for me, it wasn't.

My thoughts on the cover
I love it, I love the covers, the strong model taking up most of the scene and of course how it matches the first. I really like the battleground in the background and the lily she is holding.

Favourite quotes
'He caught me staring and smiled. It transformed his face from unreadable to... happy. which still surprised me. I had been used to him gazing at me with annoyance, anger or exasperation, and these pleasant looks threw me.'

'I turned and kissed him. His surprise didn't last. Wrapping his arms around me, he pulled me against him as he deepened the kiss.
Fire raced through me, igniting all my senses.
He broke off the kiss and smiled. " feeling better?"
"Oh, yes." I pushed him toward my bedroll. "You're not sleeping tonight."'

Nail your books (6)

'Nail your books is a feature started by Cristina at The princess of storyland, where we share our book inspired manicures.

My latest manicure is inspired by The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.

My nails
(Click on the image to see it larger.)

How to
  • Sally Hansen miracle cure base coat
  • Rimmel 60 seconds Grey matter
  • Beauty UK Yellow
  • Andrea Fullerton stripes and sparkle Black
  • Barry M Nude
  • BYS Glow in the dark nail enamel
  • Barry M Gold foil effect
  • Barry M Matt white
  • Nail dotters
-First off I, of course put on a base coat, then I painted my nails grey, except for my accent nails which I painted yellow.
-I used the striper brush to paint the Deathly hallows symbol, the lightening bolt and the wand.
-Next I just a nail dotter to draw the glasses, for the snitch and for the nude colour on the end of the wand.
-Then I used a much thinner nail dotter to put the wings on the snitch.
-Lastly, you can't see in the picture because, of course its not dark, but I put a bit of glow in the dark polish over the nude tip of the wand to make it a bit magical.

Sorry I didn't do a video tutorial this week guys, to be honest I wasn't too happy with the end result and wasn't sure I could even replicate it, it took so long I didn't even do the extra touches on the second hand, I only got as far as painting them and putting on the bolt.
But anyway, that's my Harry Potter inspired nails, they didn't come out too badly in the end, though the glasses are totally wonky and the snitch wings are a mess lol I'm still learning to draw with a nail dotter.

UK                          vs                 Australia

Mist: The thing I like about both these covers is the mouth being covered, its a very literal interpretation of the cover but I think the UK cover is my favourite, its a little more fun and colourful and screams YA, the Aussie cover is nice but beyond the quirk of the covered mouth, its just a girls face.

Ninfa: Very similar covers, but so different at the same time.
The UK cover is more fun and colourful, and I absolutely love the tag line and the font. Definitely more eye catching then the Aussie cover, with its muted colours and washed out feel; not fond of the tag line either, it's not as intriguing as the UK one.
UK wins for me.

Legacy - Review

Night school book two
Available now

What's it about?

In the last year, Allie's survived three arrests, two breakups and one family breakdown. The only bright point has been her new life at Cimmeria Academy. It's the one place she's felt she belongs. And the fact that it's brought the dreamy Carter West into her life hasn't hurt...But far from being a safe haven, the cloistered walls of Cimmeria are proving more dangerous than Allie could've imagined. The students, and faculty, are under threat and Allie's family - from her mysterious grandma to her runaway brother - are at the centre of the storm. Allie is going to have to choose between protecting her family and trusting her friends. But secrets have a way of ripping even the strongest relationships apart...
Other books in the series
Night school - Book one
My review
After not loving book one I still proceeded onto this because I found the story interesting enough to continue and well, I had a copy for review. To be completely honest, I liked Legacy even less, I didn't really feel like the main storyline progressed at all, Allie barely learns anything new due the bs excuse of 'you're not ready to know yet,' I hate when authors use that one because they can't think of a better reason to keep their secrets secret, so they can try to shock us later with the big reveal, honestly it just feels like a cop out. There were a few little reveals but they weren't shocking because I was too frustrated about what we weren't being told and Allie was more bothered about her little love triangle anyway. Yes, the second book love triangle strikes again, Legacy was way more about Allie flitting between Carter and Sylvain and trying to decide on her feelings for them so much that she barely noticed when she was in danger. Oh and of course, the two most unattainable guys in school just happen to have fallen for her.
And the other thing that annoyed me is that we still haven't met the elusive bad guy Nathanial, he showed up in one scene towards the end of Night school and hasn't been back since, so I have no handle on him or his motives, I only know him from the the point of view of the handful of people that know him through what they have told to Allie, which isn't a fat lot, so I have no connection there.
Basically, Legacy was for me, too much relationship development and not enough story development, its all moving way too slowly and there wasn't enough action, except for the obligatory scene at the end to help close up the book.
I honestly don't know if I'll carry on with this series but all signs point to not likely.

My thoughts on the cover
I really like the front view of the school on this cover, in fact I kinda of wish Allie wasn't on it so the whole scene would be focused on the building lol I like the snow too and the tagline.

Favourite quotes
''I just... care about you, Allie Sheridan,' he whispered, looking at her lips. 'A lot.''

'Heat radiated from his body as if he had a fever; Allie wasn't cold anymore. She wasn't alone anymore.'

How I became a Bookaholic
by C.J. Skuse

What got me into books and writing was abject loneliness, if you really want to know. I was 15 when I left private school and went to a sixth form centre to do my A Levels and there I proceeded to crawl into a very hard shell of my own making. The leap was huge and terrifying to me. Someone said ‘Go to college and do A Levels and mix with boys’ and what I heard was ‘Go and jump the Grand Canyon in the nude, on a micro scooter with your eyes shut.’ No way, Pedro.
So I bunked off from college a lot. When I did turn up to class, I couldn’t identify with people my own age. They were all about the Friday and Saturday night. All about the ‘What you doing later?’ All about the ‘Who are you doing later?’ All about the ‘So and So fancies So and So but So and So fancies Someone Else.’ I tried to fit in for a while but in the end I just couldn’t do it. And I knew I was the odd one out.
The square peg.
And what choice does a square peg have? It either sands down its sides to fit in, or it stays a boring old square.
Well, I tried and I failed to sand down my sides, so I took the road less travelled and it took me to a library in the centre of town. Every chance I got, I would escape there and tuck myself away in a corner and read the books I wanted to read, chomping on a comfort pastie; my trainers neatly placed under my seat. No one badgering me to join in. No one telling me to go out and get some fresh air. No one taking the piss out of me for not going to this or that party.
Just me and a book.
 And a pastie.
And an occasional drunk who’d stick his hands down his trousers behind the Stephen Kings.
Oh reader, how I would love to say I read all the classics in those stolen hours. How I would love to tell you how I bulldozed through all the Brontes’, devoured the crap out of Dickens, memorised the poems and soliloquys of Shakespeare, Keats or that weird one who killed herself.
But I didn't.
I read the books my English teacher told me not to. All the Point Horror and Point Romances. I lived vicariously in those plots of teenagers getting murdered at fun fairs, cheerleaders getting murdered at cheerleader tryouts, babysitters getting murdered by vampires or werewolves and large groups of shiny happy friends staying at sumptuous beach houses but also getting murdered. I lived in those books. It was these books that taught me how to hide in Storyland. Live vicariously through imagined worlds. Wish all the annoying shiny happy cheerleader types really would just fucking die.
I guess it also built the foundation of my love for YA too.
And then a chance conversation with my cousin one night about our shared childhood in the countryside hit upon an absolute stream of magic. It became so obvious – I wasn’t handling growing up so I would relive my childhood through writing. Everything I had lost, I would give back to myself in a novel.
And so, aged 17, I set to work. ‘Oh you’re writing a novel?’ people would say. ‘That’s nice.’ And here would endeth the conversation. Nevertheless, I carried on. Carried on reading. Carried on writing. Carried on hiding.
Around the same time I became obsessed with The Wind in the Willows author Kenneth Grahame. I bought this biography by Alison Prince and revelled in the fact that he too had a compulsive desire to relive his childhood after finding growing up a big disappointment. Everywhere he went he too felt like a square peg in a round hole; unable to leave the past behind because it had been inexplicably ripped away from him. His children’s books grew from that longing. My own novel was shaped by a similar childhood longing and peppered with quotes from Grahame’s stories as an homage to the only person in the world who I thought would understand.
Everything I have had published since then springs from these years in my life; from being 16-18. This first book featured a dangerously anti-social girl, quick-tempered and constantly railing against authority.
The opening scene was this girl called Beth being expelled from her posh boarding school (see Pretty Bad Things).
There was also a character in that first novel called Jody who was depressed and wore black jeans and band t-shirts and who was failing to come to terms with her father’s abandonment and her grandfather’s death (see Rockoholic).
Everyone around me at that time had boyfriends, social lives, friends, and I was the odd one out. I didn’t have a boyfriend. I didn’t have any true friends. I didn't enjoy it. Except English. I especially liked studying Frankenstein (see Dead Romantic).
And look at me now. I’m 32 and I’m still not into the same things people my age are into. I should be married. I should have popped out some ungrateful, world-hating spawn of my own. I should have a full time job, a mortgage and be cultivating a few stress-related tumours. But (as far as I know), I’m not. I am a square peg through and through. Always have been, always will be.
And that has made all the difference.

UK                              vs              Netherlands
Under the never sky book one.
('Een wereld zonder hemel' translates to 'A world without the sky.' - According to Google translate.)

Mist: I love the UK cover because it fits in so well with the story and the font is beautiful. The shade of green on the Dutch cover is really nice and I like what they've done with the girls face surrounded by foliage but there isn't really much going on beyond that. The UK covers just jumps out at you more and the colours remind me of a summer sunset.

Ninfa: Both covers are pretty stunning, very eye-catching and so different!
Th UK has that big splash of orange and an "end of the world" feeling to it, very apocalyptic.
The Dutch cover is more futuristic in a way, with the metallic colours and the girl who seems to have green hair.
Overall it is a difficult choice, but purely because of the title, my vote goes to the UK. The big sun and the never ending horizon are just spot on UK wins!
