Rogue Hunter: Dark Space by Kevin Hendrickson

Cover: Could use some work, maybe switch over to illustrations. I do like the photography though-- perfetct representation of one of the main characters, Zyra.
Author: Kevis Hendrickson
Genre: Action and Adventure, Adult, Sci-fi
Goodreads Blurb:
Shortly after her trial on New Venus, Zyra Zanr is captured by a team of rival bounty hunters and brought aboard their ship, the Lilith. They intend to take her to the planet Sojo, home of a powerful crime boss who nurses a grievance against her. Zyra fears for her life, knowing death awaits her at the end of the journey. A series of intense confrontations between Zyra and her captors lead to her horrifying torture.

Drugged, beaten, and near death, Zyra escapes her cell and is pursued. The enemy will stop at nothing to recapture her. Enraged by the abuse she has suffered, Zyra decides to turn the table on the Lilith's crew and show them why she is the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy.
Published/ing: October 1st, 2013
Rating: 3.5/5
Review: 
This book was really interesting. Let's start with setting.

I liked that sort-of Star Trek feel to the novel. I liked the "new universe" and the star-ships and all the terms used. It all correlated well. 

Moving on to characters:

I adored the character revealing throughout the book. Kevis really took the time to reveal a detail about the character so bye the end, we have a illustrative view of the personality of each character. 

The only problem I had with the characters was their physical descriptions. I sometimes had trouble seeing the characters in my head. Otherwise, development and personality was exceptional.

I had not read the first book when I picked up this one, but I felt as if I had. I think the author did an exceptional job of explaining what was going on and who was who, even though I myself went into it with no knowledge of the world at all. I liked the whole "everyone's a villain" theme. They are all bounty hunters and they all have and do kill daily. I liked Zyra Zanr, our main girl, and at first, we can only see her as an animal. A killing machine. But in those few moments, we see the true human shining through. 

I thought that was just exceptional. 

The book really kept me intrigued and on my feet. What will happen next? Who's going do die? And will the ship blow?

Wait to go Mr. Hendrickson!   


Future News: 
The next book is set to be published in 2014. 

Overall it was an exceptional book, despite a few flaws. I definitely want to go back and read the first one and then son read the next one. 

I'll see you guys tomorrow!

School and such....

Hey guys...











It's been a while. I'm really sorry I didn't have my act together this week. It's just been a little hectic for me. I hope I can back into jest of things. I want to do a bunch more reviews, and read some more now that it's calmed down a bit and I get a four day weekend next weekend. BUT I HAVE OTHER THINGS TO COMMUNICATE:

RICK RIORDAN:

  • As you all should know, House of Hades, the ninth installment in the Percy Jackson series will be out in... wait for it... 9 DAYS. 
  • That week (October 7th- October 14th) I shall, instead of doing my regular posts, be posting purely Percy Jackson things. 
  • The Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday it comes out, I will not post. Hopefully I can get my act together and do a non-spoiler review and spoiler review by the end of the week. 
  • BUT I'd also like to add that that Saturday, I will be seeing the man himself. Expect a full blown post of pictures and videos and FANGIRLING. 
  • But yes. That is the summary of the things. 
NANOWRIMO:

  • NaNoWriMo or National November Writing Month starts on November 1st which is about 33/34 days away. ONE MONTH. 
  • During NaNoWriMo, I will only post once a week, and that will be a weekend recap on my writing and such.
  • I will also create a NaNoWriMo page for those who don't know what that is and/or want to see my progress and read snip bits of what I've written.
  • I am Sci-Fi/Dystopian/Action writer. I have a female lead character and a bunch of awesome side characters planned out so far. 
So those are just the certain updates and announcements that needed to be made!
Now for the fun stuff:

To make up a little bit for missing my days, here's my current reading jest:



  • Recently Finished
    • I just finished Madeleine Roux's Sadie Walker is Stranded and Kevis Hendrickson's Rouge Hunter: Dark Space! They were both amazing! I hope to get my review of Rogue Hunter this week because you can buy it on Tuesday! And of course you'll here me blab all about the zombie novel BECAUSE IT WAS AWESOME. 


So yeah. I hope to get a bunch out this week, but most of you know how unpredictable school can be and how it really messes up your other life. Have a great week!

Top Ten Tuesday: Seriously Sequeals


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish
September 24: Top Ten Best Sequels Ever (thanks Tiff for this suggestion!)

I haven't really read that many sequels, so I'm actually going to do sequels in series and what I thought of them.




  • Catching Fire by Susanne Collins
    • This was my favorite book in the Hunger Games trilogy, because it really caught my attention and was quite the plot twist. I was hesitant to read it at first because I did not get how the series would continue on.
  • Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margret Stohl
    • Oooo Yessss... This was an exceptional series. I adored these books for their character descriptions and fantasy aspect. I think Kami and Margret ended Beutiful Creatures, the first book, well enough that Beautiful Darkness just took it away. 
  • Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
    • I adored how Jk took each book and made it it's own story instead splitting the full story up throughout the books. Like think if Harry was still looking for the Sorcerer's Stone in the Deathly Hallows?
  • Insurgent by Veronica Roth
    • I thought this book really brought forth the world. In Divergent, we only got to look at the two factions closely, but we didn't get to see the rest. But in Insurgent, just BAM, social societies and world politics and YES BEAUTIFUL POLITICS.  
  • Prodigy by Marie Lu
    • Like Insurgent, BAM WORLD POLITICS. I love knowing what's happening everywhere. Not just in the small little Dystopatic area, BUT THE WHOLE FRENCH THE LLAMAN WORLD. 
  • Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
    • I could feel the cold hard tension throughout this book. I felt the angst and the pain and the love. I loved the fights and the references. It was exceptional sequel and it is part of an exceptional trilogy.
  • Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
    • I adored this book. I was not too much of a fan of the first one, Delirium, but this one really showed the rebellion and the struggle and the fight, that was happening in this dystopian world.
Notes:
This was fun. Have a great Tuesday guys, and a good night. Tomorrow, I will do a W...W...W...Wednesday. I will switch each week for Waiting on Wednesday and WWW Wednesday.

9/19/13: Fangirl.

Hey Guys!

Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a good (less stressful than mine) week.

Today, I want to talk about Fangirl. The term. The origins. The society. The book.

FANGIRL

Meaning: A rabid breed of human female who is obesessed with either a fictional character or an actor. Similar to the breed of fanboy. Fangirls congregate at anime conventions and livejournal. Have been known to glomp, grope, and tackle when encountering said obesessions.
(courtesy of Urban Dictionary)

Origins: The Dickson Baseball Dictionary cites William Henry Nugent's work asserting that it was derived from the fancy, a term from England referring to the fans of a specific hobby or sport from the early 18th Century to the 19th, especially to the followers of boxing.[1] According to that theory, it was originally shortened to fance then just to the homonym fans. Merriam-Webster, the Oxford dictionary and other sources define it as a shortened version of the word fanatic. The word first become popular in reference to baseball enthusiasts. (Fanatic itself, introduced into English around 1550, means "marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion". It comes from the Modern Latin fanaticus, meaning "insanely but divinely inspired". The word originally pertained to a temple or sacred place [Latin fanum, poetic English fane]. The modern sense of "extremely zealous" dates from around 1647; the use of fanatic as a noun dates from 1650.) However, the term "fancy" for an intense liking of something, while being of a different etymology, coincidentally carries a less intense but somewhat similar connotation to "fanatic". The word emerged as an Americanism around 1889. (courtesy of Wikipedia) 

Society: Nowadays, there are many ways to become a fangirl. Cry over a book character. Stare at pictures of Tom Hiddleston for hours. Anything goes. But as we look at the growing number of fangirls/fanboys we ask ourselves, are we united? Under one common force? 

I think so. Most of us, although spread through anime, books, TV, movies, we all support the same thing. Love. 

We support the idea that loving something is beautiful and unique in it's own way. And you can love anything. "Look at that chair OMGS IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL I'M GONNA CRY." Loving things isn't bad. Chairs are kind of taking into a stretch, but yeah. If you love something and let itself infest your life, you give yourself something to live for. Something to love. Something to cry or get mad at. And that's what being human is. Humanity is love, anger, and emotion in general.

So don't let anyone get you down about loving Teen Wolf, or baseball, or Twilight, or Harry Potter. JUst know that you have become your own person in a sea of unique and interesting people who have that love in common.

The Book:

 Title: Fangirl
Cover: Beautiful artwork, perfect to go right next to my other Rainbow Rowell books!
Author: Rainbow Rowell 
Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Young-Adult
Goodreads Blurb: 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?
Published/ing: September 10, 2013 St.Martin's Press
Rating: 5/5
Review: 

Wow. Like, WOW. This is very different from anything I've ever read. 

And I've read adult fiction, contemporary, and all sorts of genres. But this just bust's through the walls of categorization. 

We have such a relate able character as the main. She's quirky, insecure, enthusiastic. 

And then the side characters are so full of foils and characterization and development-- it's so great it makes me want to cry. 

This book was exceptional in so many ways and I'm so glad I read it. I am extremely excited for anything else Rowell writes. 

Notes:
Sorry I couldn't make my review longer, it's just been a busy week full of busy things. Hopefully next week will be better. That's all for now. Have a good week, night, afternoon, day, or morning!

Waiting on Wednesday:


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that features upcoming books that we're looking forward to!

Cover: YES YES I LOVE JOHN ROCCO
Author: Rick Riordan
Genre: Fantasy, Mythology, Romance, Middle grade
Goodreads Blurb: At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy’s instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea’s forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

They have no choice. If the demigods don’t succeed, Gaea’s armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus


Published/ing: October 8th, 2013 Disney Hyperion
Page Count: 594
Review: 
I have been waiting 365 days for this book and I want it now. If you haven't read the rest of Rick Riordan's books, I suggest you ready them immediately. Over the next few weeks, you will probably hear a lot of Rick and House of Hades so be prepared. 
Future News:
The tenth and final installment to the Percy Jackson series. It will be released fall of 2014. I am extremely sad and conflicted about the end to Percy Jackson. I mean, this is my generation. This was my book series. I hope it is remembered forever. 


Notes:
I hopefully will still have a sufficent amount of time to blog, but it has been a busy time of year for school and such. I love blogging so much and it is just so much fun to read what others blog too. This weekend I will hopefully post pictures of my Doctor Who tenth doctor costume (I know sick right?). So yeah. Hopefully I'll see you guys tomorrow!

Top Ten Tuesday: Fall TBR


Hey Guys! So yes, I decided to try this. It's going to take some easing into but I want to start blogging more often. So here we go! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. 


September 17: Top Ten Books On My Fall 2013 TBR List (you could do top ten fall releases you plan on reading or just your planned reading list)

*Just gonna say this is extremely hard for me*


     

Books I am Awaiting: 
  • House of Hades by Rick Riordan: October 8, 2013
    • There are no words to my love and desire for this book. I have waited a total of 371 days for this book and I honestly cannot wait. Four days after the release I will actually be going to see him and I will be getting a signed copy of House of Hades. My excitement is to much to contain.
  • Champion by Marie Lu: November 2, 2013
    • I just recently read the first two books and really enjoyed them. I think the author really cut it off so the third book will just flow into it completely. You can read my review here.   
  • Untitled by John Green: Janurary 2, 2014
    • I have no idea what this is but it's by John Green, and that's all that matters.

9/12/13: Escape from Camp 14

Hey Guys!

This is my review for Blaine Harden's Escape from Camp 14.

Escape from Camp 14

Author: Blaine Harden
Genre: Realistic, Foreign
Goodreads Blurb: North Korea is isolated and hungry, bankrupt and belligerent. It is also armed with nuclear weapons. Between 150,000 and 200,000 people are being held in its political prison camps, which have existed twice as long as Stalin's Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. Very few born and raised in these camps have escaped. But Shin Donghyuk did.

In Escape from Camp 14, acclaimed journalist Blaine Harden tells the story of Shin Dong-hyuk and through the lens of Shin's life unlocks the secrets of the world's most repressive totalitarian state. Shin knew nothing of civilized existence-he saw his mother as a competitor for food, guards raised him to be a snitch, and he witnessed the execution of his own family. Through Harden's harrowing narrative of Shin's life and remarkable escape, he offers an unequaled inside account of one of the world's darkest nations and a riveting tale of endurance, courage, and survival.
Published/ing: March 29, 2012 by Viking Adult
Rating: 4/5
Review: 
I really enjoyed this book. It is unlike most books I have read lately (aka Romance, Contemporary, Zombies) but WOW this book blew me to pieces. 

So as a teenager, it is stereo typically said that we do not have "accurate" world views. And that really makes me mad. When I talk about certain current events, and I'm told that I am wrong. That I don't really know what's happening. 

What I do is prove that wrong. I read articles. I read books. I watch news videos. I watch interviews. I listen to presidential speeches. I know more about what is going on outside of my little city than most adults like to think.

Over the past few months (years) America has been having a row with North Korea. Just last spring there were nuclear threats.  So I thought that'd I'd better educate myself on what is really going on in North Korea, because this is not something that is brought up in schools. 

This book is the perfect way to learn about North Korea and its relations with China, South Korea, and America. We get to see the hierarchical system and the communist rule. We see inside the government and inside the prison camps of escapees and traitor families. We get to see possibly the worst form of massacre in human history (yes, worse than the Holocaust and Stalin). 

I found this book extremely moving and extremely informative. 

If you want to be like me, and know more, I suggest book to you. In fact, I suggest this book to just about anyone. Adult or Teenager. You should know why it's always North Korea this and North Korea that.


Future News:

There was a German movie made off this book in 2012, but as far as that, there is no new news. 


See you guys this weekend hopefully!

W...W....W...Wednesday: Fangirl

Ello Mates!








For Wednesday I'm going to do W... W... W... Wednesdays hosted by Should Be Reading.
  • Currently Reading
I am currently reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and I don't quite have an opinion on it. But I do hope it's good and that its all that people have said its cracked up to be. 


  • Finished Reading
I recently finished reading Escape from Camp 14, which was an amazing book. I had originally wanted to read it because John Green said amazing things about it and it sounded like just the educational book I need for the political view on North Korea.


  • To-Read
I won many ARCs this past week and I hope to read most of them. That includes Rogue Hunter: Dark Space by Kevis Hendrickson, Water by Terra Harmony (Oh MY GODS THE COVER), and so many more! Can't wait to start!



Notes
Not too much to say on this fine, fine day. I have a lot of tests coming up so I'll be more freaking out over that than reading, but hopefully I'll have a lot more time to read soon! Have a good HUMP DAY!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books to Movies: Ugh

Hey Guys! So yes, I decided to try this. It's going to take some easing into but I want to start blogging more often. So here we go! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. 


September 10: Top Ten Books I Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show (set in a perfect world...in which movies don't butcher the books we love.) -- originally done April 2011 

*Some of these already have Movies/TV Shows but I am just going to say that they really needed to be better*

  • Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan
    • The movies aren't that good. I think these books would do better as a kick-ass TV series. Anyone agree?

  • The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
    • Also has a not-so-great movie, and also should've been a TV series.

  • Delirium by Lauren Oliver
    • Almost a TV series, but didn't sell. I actually would like the trilogy itself turned into a trilogy of movies rather than TV.

  • Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
    • Goodish movie, but the first three books were all squashed into it. I think it should be a single movie for each book. I did like the actors picked out for the movie though.

  • Maximum Ride by James Patterson
    • PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I NEED AN AWESOME MOVIE WITH AWESOME SPECIAL EFFECTS AND GREAT ACTORS. But it's not a perfect world.

  • Looking For Alaska by John Green
    • Yes. Just Yes. I hope his other book, The Fault in our Stars, will turn out great and then the rest of his books are turned into awesome movies. 

  • Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
    • I don't really know if I'd want this in movie form. I really liked my perception of the book.

  • Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
    • I think, if done right, this would make an exceptional movie complete with a mysterious narrating voice and creepy writing. That would be spectacular.

  • The Shifter by Janice Hardy
    • It would make an extremely cool action movie. Kind of Hunger Games-ish to give you a visual.

The Legend Trilogy



Author: Marie Lu
Genre: Dystopian, Romance
Goodreads Blurb: What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

Published/ing: November 29th, 2011 
Rating: 4/5
Review:

Personally, I adored this book. It really tied together that dystopia and romantic feeling. Sometimes books dwell to much on one or the other but I think this had the perfect balance. I liked the different settings and descriptions and thoughts and feelings. I thought it had that realistic feel that was really needed to get this book up and running. You can tell Marie Lu but serious thought into this book series. 

It is written in two POVs which I was ify about at first, but it really pulled through and presented the format. 

Our main characters, Day and June, are absolutely spectacular. We have June, the republic prodigy with a tad bit of rebel in her. She has mixed feelings towards everything that comes her way and has such an internal conflict with her self that sometimes you get that "I FEEL CONFLICTED TOO" feeling along with her. 

Day is the rebel of all rebels. Not Katniss, not Tris, but Day. He blows things up. He climbs walls. He jumbs off buildings. 
We also ge to see him develop as a character. He learns that rebeling isn't the only thing that he can do. He could fight back. He could fight for what the US once was. 

The love octagon in this book is just ugh. There's this person and this person and conlict here and conflict there and bad choice there and unexplainable choice here. 

Overall, I thought it was a great book, although lacking sometimes in character choice, it had a great feel to it. I think this series will go far. 

Goodreads Blurb: June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.

It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long. 

But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengeance, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?

In this highly-anticipated sequel, Lu delivers a breathtaking thriller with high stakes and cinematic action.

Published/ing: January 29th, 2013
Rating: 4/5
Review:

This book really revealed all that world politics and pre-apocalypyic stuff. We see how the world detiorated and why the government is the way it is, and where all the other countries are in the situation. 
We are also introduced to knew minor characters that really affect the plot line. Anden, as mentioned above, is an exceptional character (personally he is my favorite in the book) that is a mystery until we really get to hear him speak. We knew his name, but we didn't know who he was. 

I'd actually say he is extremely to Jullian in the Lauren Oliver's Delirium Series. 

But definetly a character that I hope stays and affects June and Day more and more. 

The ending of this book just cut perfectly for Champion, which will be released  November 5th, 2013, that will hopefully be the full-filling end to this magnificent Dystopian trilogy.

Goodreads Blurb: The explosive finale to Marie Lu’s New York Times bestselling LEGEND trilogy—perfect for fans of THE HUNGER GAMES and DIVERGENT!

He is a Legend.
She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion? 

June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.

W...W...W...Wednesday: Bloody Fangirls

Hey Guys!

For Wednesday I'm going to do W... W... W... Wednesdays hosted by Should Be Reading.



  • Currently Reading
I'm actually about ready to stop reading this book. The writing is nice, the way it is written souly in poetry, but the story itself is kind of all over the place and there is too much conflict and not enough solution. I think I'll just go ahead and finish it, because it is a easy and fast read, but otherwise I think this one'll be 2/5.


  • Finished Reading
I love a goo old-fashioned Anthony Horowitz Horror Story. This is the third book in a collection of short horror stories. I first started reading them in fourth grade and they have scared the living pants off me ever since. Great plot-twists, great character (that are developed perfectly over short amounts of time), and great story-lines. Definite 5/5.
  • To-Read
John Green actually suggested me Escape from Camp 14. I read the first page and was totally hooked, so that's a good sign. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is coming out very soon and I got it on pre-order to come as soon as it's released, so expect a review of that!



Notes
So I have decided to do these weekly things, and which means I will no longer do a regular Thursday post like I do, but instead do a Book Review every Thursday. Also, over weekends, I will do a fandom post which will pertain to Movies, Fandoms, or Authors. Thanks guys, and have an amazing Thursday!
