ABOUT ON THE ROCKS (Mixology #2):

Love is best served on the rocks.

My roommates look really good naked. At least one of them does. I’m sure the other one does too, but I haven’t seen him without his pants on. Living with two guys wasn't something I’d ever considered, but the opportunity fell in my lap, and I’d have been crazy to turn it down.

College went by in a great big blur leaving me with less of a direction than I had going in. Add in a family that wanted nothing to do with me, and my post-college plans were less than clear. What’s a girl to do when she has nowhere else to turn? She moves to the Outer Banks and learns to bartend. After all, it was my horrible bartending skills that led me to my roommate’s bed and into his heart.

Waiting on Wednesday #70: The Infinite Sea

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week's WoW is...


The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey


Title: The Infinite Sea (The Fifth Wave #2)
Author: Rick Yancey
Release date: September 16th 2014
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction/Dystopian

How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

If you know me at all, you'll know how much I love sci-fi and dystopian of any sort. I adored The 5th Wave, and I'm absolutely dying for this sequel! Seriously. I can't even express how excited I am and how much I wish September were here already.

Review: Played by Liz Fichera

Title: Played (Hooked #2)
Author: Liz Fichera
Release date: May 27th 2014
Publisher: Harlequin TEEN
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Format: eARC
Pages: 346

This Game Is Getting All Too Real

Sam Tracy likes to stay under the radar and hang out with his friends from the Rez. But when he saves rich suburban princess Riley Berenger from falling off a mountain, she decides to try to save him. Riley promises to help Sam win the heart of the girl he can't get over, and suddenly Sam is mad popular and on everyone's hot list. Except now Riley's trying out some brand-new bad-girl moves and turning both of their lives upside down.







This is actually the first interracial YA series I've read, beginning with Hooked last year. It definitely opened my eyes to see all the racism present even with a thriving Native community, and I was quite outraged by most of it. So in a way I'm glad there's less focus on it in this book. Played follows Ryan's sister, Riley, and Fred's friend Sam from the Rez. There's a lot more drama in this one, and some pretty dangerous situations as well. But I didn't like this as much as its predecessor, for a few reasons.

Riley and Sam both end up on the same team and paired up during a weekend leadership camp. They're not psyched about being stuck together. But when Riley slips down the side of a mountain, Sam goes after her, and they spend the night trapped in a storm underneath the tree branches. They begin talking, and Sam decides to tell her his number one secret - that he's still in love with Fred. So Riley decides to help him get her, and that's where all the trouble begins.

The only thing I didn't like about this book? Riley. But she's one of the protagonists, so that affected my enjoyment of the novel a lot. We're supposed to think Riley is smart, but honestly she makes such ridiculous decisions, I can't help but wonder. There's this one part that, okay, is pretty insignificant but I kind of fixated on it. It's this little bit here - 
I'd heard that he'd gotten a perfect score on the math section of the SATs. I mean, who scored perfect on that? That was borderline freakish.
Well, where I live, it's kind of an embarrassment not to get a perfect score. Usually. Depends on the nationality, of course. But basically most people I know think that section is pretty damn easy. And Riley's supposed to be smart! There's also another bit involving Botox that really had me wondering why people think she's smart.

Another thing I really didn't like about her - she tries her best to break up her brother's relationship with his girlfriend. Who does that? Does she seriously not get how much it would hurt both of them if she interfered? Riley finds that out the hard way. Also, her fangirl-like obsession with Jay Hawkins pissed me off. He's just a guy, not even a nice one. Get over it.

But to balance out Riley's annoying-ness, we have Sam Tracy. Fred's best friend from the Rez. If you've read Hooked, you'll know he had a thing for Fred. Well, it's still there throughout most of this novel. Sam and Fred reminded me of Beth and Isaiah from Dare You To by Katie McGarry. Coincidentally, the boyfriend's name in that book is also Ryan! Anyway, I'm glad Sam and Fred work things out, because it's hard to see either of them in pain. I always thought Ryan and Fred made a great pair, even if they have a lot of differences.

Sam's pretty much perfect, and I liked him way more than I did Ryan. He's exceptionally smart (unlike Riley - sorry, I had to) and he has goals to really do something after high school. Going to college, coming back to make a difference in the Rez. Also, I loved how adorably clueless he is about his attractiveness! After saving Riley, Sam becomes what she calls 'A-list'. And he doesn't even realize. It's so cute.

Towards the end of the novel, things get kind of crazy. Involving a random six-hour motorcycle ride from Phoenix to San Diego, an almost-mugging-slash-killing, and an arrest. I think it was a bit much, but it did the job. And of course I couldn't keep my eyes off the pages! I adored the beginning half, and though it spiralled down a little later on, this book definitely kept me hooked throughout.

On the whole, I did enjoy this. Played is named aptly, too, the way people play each other. Especially the way Riley does it. This one is a lot more intense than Hooked, but its underlying message is equally important. I'll leave you to figure it out when you read it!

Review: Wicked Games by Sean Olin

Title: Wicked Games
Author: Sean Olin
Release date: June 10th 2014
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Thriller
Format: eARC
Pages: 237
Source: Edelweiss

To all the locals in the small beach town of Dream Point, Carter and Lilah seem like the perfect It Couple-but their relationship is about to brutally unravel before everyone's eyes.

Carter has always been a good guy, and while Lilah has a troubled past, she's been a loyal girlfriend for the last four years. When smart, sexy Jules enters the picture at a senior-year bash, Carter succumbs to temptation. And when Lilah catches wind of his betrayal, she decides that Jules needs to pay.

By the end of the summer, the line between right and wrong will be blurred beyond recognition. Blood will be shed. Nothing in Dream Point will ever be the same.



Firstly, I want to say that the synopsis of this book definitely does not prepare you for the craziness in it. I went into Wicked Games thinking it would be a fun and intriguing read about a girl trying to get her boyfriend back by sabotaging the girl he slept with. I thought I would be on Lilah's side. But boy, was I wrong. I couldn't bring myself to like any of the three main characters in this book, and that's mostly the reason I couldn't like the book either.

Lilah and Carter have been together for almost the entirety of high school. Lilah always thought they'd be together forever. But as she spirals down into depression as a result of not taking her meds, she becomes unbearable to be with. Carter wants out. And when he meets Jules, he knows he's found someone he could be happy with. But no way is Lilah going to let that happen. She strives to do everything she can to keep Jules away from Carter, no matter the consequence. And her deteriorating mental stability makes her actions take a very dark turn.

The first thing that put me off was the narration. It's third person omniscient, which means we get pretty much everyone's perspectives at some point. But it's all jumbled up, and it just made me feel really distanced from the characters. It did contribute towards the ominous feel of the plot later on, but throughout most of the book, it annoyed me.

Excuse the language, but Lilah is a fucking psycho. Right from the beginning. She starts off being really annoying and clingy to Carter, no wonder he wants to get away from her. And at one point she basically pimps herself out to Jules' ex-boyfriend just to get Carter back. Really? Man, she pissed me off. And really creeped me out. I hated her with a burning passion at some parts, and I just wanted to yell at Carter and Jules to finish her off already. I mean seriously, the things she does to Jules... I'm surprised the girl didn't strangle her.

Carter was no better. Okay, of course he was because no one's as bad as Lilah. But he pissed me off too. He's way too afraid to break things off with Lilah, and that could have meant avoiding all the ugliness later. But no, he sticks it out, the idiot. And then he in turn gets all clingy with Jules. I did like that he's really protective of her, but honestly there's no point feeling that way if you're just going to make a half-assed effort to do something about it.

Jules is sweet, and the only possibly redeeming feature of this book. Maybe. I've got nothing against her really, she's the victim in all this. She genuinely cares for Carter, and what she gets in return is a psycho bent on destroying her life. But Jules is also kind of a pushover, and a bit too naive for my liking. If I had someone like psycho Lilah stalking me, I'd do something about it, get her locked up early on before she does something serious. But Jules just lets everything go until the huge climax-showdown-thingy.

The irony at the end was a nice twist, though, and probably the only thing I kind of liked about this book. But it was mostly way too creepy and annoying for me. I'm sorry, but I really can't recommend this. To anyone. I guess some people would like it, but it just wasn't for me. Right now I'm just trying to get these characters out of my head, especially Lilah.

Review: Paranoia by J.R. Johansson

Title: Paranoia (The Night Walkers #2)
Author: J.R. Johansson
Release date: June 8th 2014
Publisher: Flux
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Thriller
Format: eARC
Pages: 329
Source: NetGalley

In the aftermath of the events that nearly killed him, Parker Chipp is trying to learn to cope better with life as a Watcher. And it seems to be working...until he wakes up in jail with a hangover and 12 hours of missing time. Darkness has somehow taken control and Parker doesn't have a clue how to stop him. He finds an unlikely ally in Jack, the mysterious guy in the motorcycle jacket who offers to help Parker master his abilities as a Watcher. But even as they practice, the darkness inside Parker is getting more and more powerful, taking over Parker’s body and doing everything he can to destroy Parker's life.

When Jack reveals that there is another kind of Night Walker, known as a Taker, Parker starts to wonder if the strange things happening in Oakville are more than just a coincidence. After all, people are more than just sleepwalking. They're emptying their savings accounts with no memory of doing so, wandering into strange parts of town and disappearing, they're even killing other people--all in their sleep. If Parker wants to find out what's happening or have any hope of seeing his father again, he’ll have to defy Jack and put his own life in danger...because the more he learns about these other Night Walkers, the more certain he becomes that his life isn't the only one that could be lost.

Paranoia exceeded my expectations and I ended up enjoying it even more than I did Insomnia! It's very rare that I like the second book in a series more than the first - usually I like the first better or they're equal. But there was so much plot development in this, and character development as well. It was a fantastic read, and I loved every bit of it.

After the fire that almost killed Parker, Mia and Finn, they're all laying low. Parker continues to sleep in Mia's dreams, but when Mia goes on vacation with Finn and Addie, Parker's forced to survive the nights alone. And that's when he suddenly loses several hours of his time and ends up in jail. He knows that Darkness, his evil side, can take control now. Jack, a guy he met after the fire, returns to teach him about his abilities, and Parker realizes there's more to it all than he'd thought.

We get a lot more background in this book. For starters, there are three different types of Night Walkers - Watchers like Parker, Builders, and Takers. All have different abilities. Jack teaches Parker about his own, and how he can change dreams slightly to have control. Through Jack, Parker also finds out more about his father and who he really is.

It was interesting to see Parker along with Darkness, because they're two distinct personas, but essentially the same person. Darkness is just the side of Parker that only has survival in mind. No morals, no nothing. And he's getting stronger. But then so is Parker. I liked seeing how much more confident he's gotten in this book.

We get to see Mia, Addie and Finn again as well, and there are some interesting developments. I wish there was more of Finn in this book though, he's my favourite character and the comic relief. But I loved this book anyway. Parker and Addie have gotten closer, but they're still keeping their relationship a secret. They go through a lot of rough patches in this book thanks to Darkness, and Jack too, but they're strong enough to make it through.

Jack really intrigued me throughout. He's very mysterious, and we don't get to know much about him apart from the fact that he was sent by Parker's dad. Jack is only a year or so older than Parker, and he has a thing for Addie so there's a lot of jealousy and resentment going on between them. There's a twist in the plot later on concerning Jack, but I saw that coming a mile away so I wish parts of the book had been less predictable. There are also definitely developments that I didn't see coming, and those were pretty awesome.

Parker learns a lot more about other Night Walkers, and though he's glad he's not alone, there are some evil people out there who'd use humans in any way to get what they want, and to survive. There's suspense everywhere, and quite a lot of danger and action, too. The pacing is great, and I just really, really enjoyed the book. There aren't really any loose ends at the end, and no cliffhangers or anything, so it left me wondering whether there will be another book. I sure hope so!

I've read Waiting for You, and it's amazing. Just as awesome as Heather's previous books. I'd recommend these books to literally everyone! I'll get around to Blades of Magic and Some Fine Day in June after exams. Strange Chemistry always has great sci-fi YA novels, so I'm really looking forward to Kat Ross's debut. Feral's been up on Edelweiss for a while now, but I just went over Harper's titles again and it seemed pretty intriguing to me, so I grabbed it. Hope it's good!

Review: The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings

Title: The Murder Complex (The Murder Complex #1)
Author: Lindsay Cummings
Release date: June 10th 2014
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Genre: Young Adult Dystopian
Format: eARC
Pages: 266
Source: Edelweiss

Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision.

The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is—although he doesn’t know it—one of the MC’s programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family?

Action-packed, blood-soaked, and chilling, this is a dark and compelling debut novel by Lindsay Cummings.



The synopsis doesn't reveal much at all about the novel, so I went into this book practically knowing nothing and definitely very curious. After reading the book, that curiosity is somewhat satisfied, though I have so many more questions now. Though it's safe to say that The Murder Complex is as riveting as I was expecting, despite the constant confusion I felt for many reasons.

Meadow Woodson lives in a world where murders are a common occurrence. But her father has trained her to kill and survive, so she has a fighting chance. When she gets a job in the city, she meets Zephyr, a Ward who apparently dreams about her. Zephyr recognizes Meadow, but has no idea who she is. When Zephyr makes an attempt on Meadow's life, they both realize he's not a regular Ward - he's programmed by the Initiative to kill. And the two of them need to figure out how to stop it all before it's too late.

We get an alternate dual POV from Meadow and Zephyr, though they sometimes blended together in my mind - I couldn't tell who was who. This happened later on, when they were together. But I think it was a great idea for the beginning, so we get to know both characters before they meet.

I liked Meadow. She's a total badass, definitely not one you want to mess with. She's strong, tough, and highly skilled. Thanks to her father's 'training'. I really didn't like his methods - it seemed like he didn't care about his kids at all. But I can't deny that they were effective, since Meadow knows how to take care of herself.

Zephyr was equally likeable, and I sympathized with him more because of his situation. He has moments of weakness, but I can't judge him for that since I can't ever imagine being like him - programmed and controlled by an organization to kill whoever they want. What I  didn't like about the protagonists was the insta-love. The romance was kind of a downer. Zephyr claims to love Meadow when he barely even knows her, and even Meadow warms to him really quickly, despite the fact that she shouldn't even trust him. There was no build-up, it was just BAM. They're into each other.

Another thing that bugged me is the world-building. It's a great concept, but all the terms confused me because of the lack of explanation. The Dark Times, the Silent Hour, the Pulses. Terms like that are just thrown around and you're left trying to figure out exactly what they are. Some of the plot threads also didn't make sense to me, and I just hope there'll be more of an explanation in the next book, especially about the nanites that can heal any wound and make diseases harmless.

I liked all the action in the novel, and how fast the pace went. But apart from Meadow and Zephyr, I couldn't connect with any of the other characters. Not even Meadow's siblings, whom she'd do anything for. They all just seemed very two-dimensional to me. Also, in a dystopian series, even if it's the first book I need some answers, some explanation for all the chaos that's happening in that world. But in this, we get very few answers, all of which come really late in the novel. And the entire book feels like just an introduction, despite the numerous action scenes and the intensity.

I'm still very curious about this world, since the concept seems really cool to me. So I will be picking up the next book to find out where it all leads. The Murder Complex is an intriguing debut from Lindsay Cummings, and I think it'd be a great read for dystopian lovers.

Life of a Blogger #1: Favourite Music Albums


Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat, in which bloggers discuss non-bookish topics so we can get to know each other better.

This is my first Life of a Blogger post! I was planning on doing one a few weeks ago, but decided that I wanted my first post to be on a topic I really enjoyed - music! I know a lot of people nowadays download music digitally instead of buying CDs, but I've always found a certain allure to it. So this is a great topic for me, since I have so many albums I love! Here are some (okay, a lot) of my favourites, in no particular order 


Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park
Honestly one of the best albums ever made.




Meteora - Linkin Park
I love this one and Hybrid Theory equally! Both mean so much to me.


Simple Plan - Simple Plan
The album (and band) that got me into punk music, which I now listen to pretty much all the time.


Riot! - Paramore
The last Paramore album with the Farro brothers *sob* And definitely their best.


Let Go - Avril Lavigne
I miss this badass tomboy Avril. Growing up, this chick was my idol.


Under My Skin - Avril Lavigne
Tied for my favourite Avril album along with Let Go. This is something I can never get sick of.



Break the Spell - Daughtry
The first Daughtry album I bought, and the one that made me fall in love with the band.


Boys Like Girls - Boys Like Girls
There are so many memories associated with most of the songs on this album :')


Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones - Black Veil Brides
My most recent band obsession! I adore these guys now, and I admire how much they've evolved.


Awake - Skillet
This is the kind of album I can listen to over and over again on repeat and never get bored.


Recovery - Eminem
I'm more partial to Eminem's older stuff, but this album is kind of a masterpiece.


Dirty Work - All Time Low
Another music album that got me obsessed with the band! All the songs on this are so upbeat without sounding pop, and still maintaining the punk sound.




Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin
I challenge any music lover to listen to this album without head banging.


Waking Up - OneRepublic
I wasn't really a huge OneRepublic fan before my friend got me this album for my birthday, and now they're one of my favourite bands!


American Idiot - Green Day
A classic, this one. Again, one of the best albums ever made. In my opinion, of course.




So those are all my favourite bands! And most of my favourite artists/bands, of course. I may have gotten a little carried away, I just couldn't leave any of these out. Leave a comment and let me know what you think of these, and what your favourite albums are!
