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.
