Epicness of December

Hey guys! So on the 9th of December I'm going to be 21 years old! Therefore, December has to be an epic month for books too. Also, the year is soon ending and I cannot let it be "the end of the world" without reading these books! I'm only choosing books that I've been dying to read for a long time and that have a rating of 4 stars or higher on Goodreads. So here is the list! What do you guys think?!

I'm seeing a trend of blue going on.

Book Review: Easy by Tammara Webber

Paperback 307 pgs

Published  16 September 2012

A girl who believes trust can be misplaced, promises are made to be broken, and loyalty is an illusion. A boy who believes truth is relative, lies can mask unbearable pain, and guilt is eternal. Will what they find in each other validate their conclusions, or disprove them all?

When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into sophomore year. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she's single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, and failing a class for the first time in her life.

Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex's frat brother. Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that night--but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to be the perfect rebound.

When her attacker turns stalker, Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in defeat or learn to fight back. Lucas remains protective, but he's hiding secrets of his own. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.

Book Review: I've wanted to read this book for so long and I finally got my hands on it. I couldn't put it down and read it in a day. The story starts off fast with the first scene being the one in which she gets attacked and almost raped. The book sends a really strong message and an awareness of rape. It's a really good example of how the notion that a rapist can only be some stranger that attacks you in the dark or late at night is untrue. A rapist could be someone you know, someone at school, or work, etc. The book does a good job of making an example of this. 
This book is also about new beginnings and love. There of course is a "bad boy" who to me is the opposite of a bad boy. He seems to be completely perfect. I did like that the romance wasn't completely rushed and I enjoyed that they never once said " I love you". The book is through the time span of one college semester. I really enjoyed how the story developed and how it ended. This book is considered to be Mature YA or New Adult so there are some steamy sex scenes or almost sex scenes in the book.

Book Review: Nevermore By Kelly Creagh

Hardcover, 543 Pgs

Published August 31st 2010 by 

Atheneum Books For Young Readers

Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look. 

Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. 

As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares.

Review: Finished this book yesterday and honestly it was a let down. It started off good and then I put it down for about a day. When I picked it back up the story really sped up but about the last 150 or so pages the story just went down from there. I was no longer interested in the characters or in the story. I really don't understand the hype around this book, I guess it just wasn't for me. I think there are way more interesting paranormal books out there. I gave it 3 stars, the book was just okay, I don't think I'll be reading the sequel. Nevermore may be more suited for a younger reader.

Review: Pandemonium By Lauren Oliver

Rating: 5/5
Review: WOW I don’t even know where to start. This book was…perfect. It was just perfect. I don’t think I’ve read a book that has made me feel so much since like, The Hunger Games. Lauren Oliver is a fantastic writer. She makes her words come to life and is magnificent at painting pictures in your head and making you feel exactly what the main character Lena feels. And not only her, but what the other character’s must be feeling also. 
Pandemonium is the sequel to Delirium. Delirium is a dystopia where the government has tried to create a perfect society where love does not exist. Love or as they call it “amor deliria nervosa” is a disease. At about 18 years old you get an operation that will rid you of it. But not only of love but of mostly any feeling. You won’t be able to love or hate or feel any kind of passion. The whole concept is very weird and before you read the book you may think it’ll be very cheesy but it isn’t. Lauren Oliver writes in such a way that it’ll make sense. 
I read Delirium a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it, I feared that it’ll be almost the same as “Matched” which I really didn’t enjoy but no it wasn’t. Delerium was really good and set up the world nicely. And the end was a complete cliffhanger so I HAD to read Pandemoium. 
And WOW Pandemonium did not disappoint, it exceeded my expectations. This book was different then Delirium, it had so much more action in it. Right from the beginning the book started with the same momentum that Delirium left off in and it flew from there. The characters were completely amazing. Not once did the book start getting slow. The end of every chapter left me thinking “wow”. 
Some new character’s like Raven and Tack where great together. Lena’s mom is still so intriguing. And even though Alex was missing in this book I felt Lena’s feeling for him more than ever. But wow, Julian!! Let’s just talk about Julian, when I heard that this book was going to have a different love interest for Lena, I couldn’t see how that would work, but it did! Julian is adorable! And by the end of this book I was cheering them on so much. Till, the last thing that happened…at the end..
okay in the end when it seems like everything is perfect and it feels like the calm after the storm. And you read this:
“Promise me we’ll stay together,okay?” “You and me”
“I promise”
(and then Alex out of NOWHERE!) “Don’t believe her.”
whaaaaaaaat!? What is Lauren Oliver doing to me! I need the 3rd book now!! Lauren is a genius. And this book was fantastic! Definitely one of my new favorites.
