Hey guys! I know it has been a while since I posted my last review but college has been crazy!...fun, but crazy! :) However, yesterday I picked up a book I started a long time ago and I finally finished it last night so I have for you a review today :) I am definitely going to be getting back in my reading grove now that college life is starting settle down. So, I have for you a review of Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green.
I really liked this book and its plot line. I found the story to be very suspenseful and the ending was truly something I didn't see coming. There are a lot of twists and turns throughout the book keeping me interested and on the edge of my seat. The book essentially revolves are 3 girls who are getting mysterious messages from an anonymous sender. Along with the threats of the messages you are also given the background romances throughout the novel along with regular girl drama. However, as I read the last page of the book I realized that this book was a lot like the Pretty Little Liars plot line. Sure, there are 3 girls instead of 4, but this book is very similar to Pretty Little Liars. Even the cover reminds me of Pretty Little Liars title sequence with Lucy Hale putting her finger to her lips. So, this is a really good book with a great plot and is a really good read, however the only downfall is its extreme similarities to Pretty Little Liars. It's not to big of a deal because I like the Pretty Little Liar series so I did enjoy this book a lot. its a great book and I cannot wait to read the sequel! :)
It all started on a whim: the game was a way for Tenley Reed to reclaim her popularity, a chance for perfect Caitlin “Angel” Thomas to prove she’s more than her Harvard application. Loner Sydney Morgan wasn’t even there; she was hiding behind her camera like usual. But when all three start receiving mysterious dares long after the party has ended, they’re forced to play along—or risk exposing their darkest secrets.
How far will Tenley, Caitlin and Sydney go to keep the truth from surfacing? And who’s behind this twisted game?
Set against the backdrop of Echo Bay, an isolated beach town haunted by misfortune, Truth or Dare is a highly charged debut that will keep readers in suspense from beginning to end.
Tana lives in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown’s gates, you can never leave.
One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black.

Hey guys! It's been a little while since I've posted a review because of my crazy busy schedule dealing with being a senior and college searching. I will trying to get more books read and posting more reviews and getting back into my groove :). So, I have a review for you today of The Farm by Emily McKay. I gotta tell you, this is a really great book if you are into romance, supernatural, vampires, and the Hunger Games.
Life was different in the Before: before vampires began devouring humans in a swarm across America; before the surviving young people were rounded up and quarantined. These days, we know what those quarantines are—holding pens where human blood is turned into more food for the undead monsters, known as Ticks. Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other…And when trust is a thing of the past, escape is nearly impossible.
First off the book is told from three points of view. You are told the story from the views of Lily, Mel, and Carter, however most of the story is told from Lily's point of view. The story itself is alittle like the Hunger Games with vampires dropped into the mix. The sisters are trapped in this community called The Farm and are desperate to escape before the turn 18. Lily's twin sister Mel is autistic and provides a whole different view point of the story. Mel's view point was my favorite because I really loved how she saw everything in a completely different way that Lily saw things and she pays attention to so much detail. Of course I love the budding romance between Lily and Carter and I loved reading the ups and downs of their relationship and watching them grow together as a potential couple. This book will definitely keep you up all night reading and provides alot of plot twists and turns. The ending of the book is really great and unexpected which was another thing I loved about the book. I loved that it wasn't predictable. This book is a great book about romance, family bond, and survival. This would definitely be a great book to pick up and read!! I can't wait for the second book!!! :)
