Breathe by Sarah Crossan

Author: Sarah Crossan
Expected Publication: October 2nd, 2012
400 pages
Received through SBB ARC Tours

Inhale. Exhale.
Breathe . . .
The world is dead.
The survivors live under the protection of Breathe, the corporation that found a way to manufacture oxygen-rich air.

has been stealing for a long time. She's a little jittery, but not terrified. All she knows is that she's never been caught before. If she's careful, it'll be easy. If she's careful.

should be worried about Alina and a bit afraid for himself, too, but even though this is dangerous, it's also the most interesting thing to happen to him in ages. It isn't every day that the girl of your dreams asks you to rescue her.

wants to tell him that none of this is fair; they'd planned a trip together, the two of them, and she'd hoped he'd discover her out here, not another girl.

And as they walk into the Outlands with two days' worth of oxygen in their tanks, everything they believe will be shattered. Will they be able to make it back? Will they want to?

So if you have been with me from the beginning you know I have been on a dystopian kick ever since I read Divergent last December. Guys, I think this one made one of my top favorite reads of 2012 it was that fantastic. *Be warned of potential fangirly review ahead!*

First off, the cover. Holy gorgeous! I love this cover. It depicts the story perfectly and even though I did not imagine the world outside of the Pod to look quite like that, I still really love the cover.

The world! Talk about corrupt! I really enjoyed learning about the world both inside and outside the Pod. The premise of the story was really well explained and I just fell into the book with little to no effort. The writing painted such a vivid picture in my mind and (as a visual reader) I just started thinking of what it would be like to live in the Pod. How cool, but at the same time so scary!

In the book, air is recycled and used again in the Pod so that everyone can continue to breathe. But, (here's the kicker) they must PAY for the air they breathe. Can you imagine having to pay for air? How the heck do the people not think that is ludicrous? It is actually mentioned in the story that oxygen levels inside the pod are upwards of 30%. I googled how much O2 is in our air, and we only have 20%. Wouldn't you be like high on oxygen or something? Goodness!

In the book, we get to see the world from three different perspectives. Alina is part of the RATS, an organization on a mission to replant the trees destroyed during the "Switch". Bea is a lower class civilian that lives with her parents who are just barely able to keep paying for her to breathe. Quinn, Bea's best friend is a Premium, a high class civilian, whose dad is high in the ranks of Breathe, the company that controls oxygen in the Pod.

I really enjoyed getting to know each and every character. I find it really cool to read something from three perspectives and get three different thoughts on a situation. Alina was a super cool, take charge, kick butt character. Bea was a demure yet totally awesome girl that had an amazing attitude and was ready to tackle the world. Quinn was the equally as amazing companion to Bea. He totally rocked my socks off, and I even admit to crushing on him just a bit :)

The writing was great. Even though the book was almost 400 pages, I felt like I was flying through the pages. The plot was fast paced and the storyline was quick. There was lots of action and very little down time, which I loved!

Talk about insane cliffhanger! Holy crap guys, I need the next book like now and this one isn't even published yet! I guess I must resign myself to a waiting game. *sigh*

Overall, Breathe totally rocked! The characters were awesome, the world was amazing (and creepy!) and the story flowed quickly and effortlessly! I cannot wait for Mrs. Crossan's next installment in this series!

Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Author- Jodi Meadows
Published- January 31st, 2012
Katherine Tegen Books
374 pages
Obtained from PBS

New soul

Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.

No soul

Even Ana's own mother thinks she's a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she'll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?


Sam believes Ana's new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana's enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else's life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?

Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life.

I finished up Incarnate Sunday night, and I must say that I have definitely never read a book quite like it. I can see how it can be such and odd ball that it is a turn off. I, for one, really enjoyed it!

The obvious thing that first attracted me to this book was of course, the cover. Talk about gorgeous! The colors are awesome and the face is so captivating to look at!

I really enjoyed learning about the world that Incarnate was set in, it seemed to be very intricate and well thought out, but I did feel like the book was missing a few details that I feel would have made the story more enjoyable. What caused there to be only 1 million people? What caused the hatred between sylph, dragons and people? What happened to the people that used to live in Heart? I felt like a lot of my questions went unanswered.

I also felt the characters were flat. Ana showed little to no emotion and I had a really hard time trying to get into her head and get to know her. Sam was a tad bit better. I at least was able to connect on a small level with him and understand him. The romance was cute between him and Ana, but by all means it was not the best or most heart pounding romance I have read.

There was definitely no doubt that there was action though. Dragons attacked left and right, people went on killing sprees and Ana had to run for her life. I really enjoyed the more action packed parts of the book. There was no lack of excitement. Overall though, the plot dragged and there were many slow parts in the books that I was trudging through.

But, once I got past the fact that the book dragged AND had flat characters AND was missing major details, I really enjoyed it. Once I looked past all of the flaws I actually found Incarnate to be a real page turner.

Overall, I enjoyed Incarnate. The bones of the story were great, I just think the story could have been better executed. The characters fell a little flat, the plot dragged in places and the world was ill explained. I will for sure be continuing with the series though. I am hoping that all of my questions are answered when I read Asunder!

Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate

Eve and Adam
Authors- Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate
Releases on- October 2nd, 2012
Feiwel and Friends
304 pages
Provided by Netgalley

Sixteen-year-old Evening Spiker lives an affluent life in San Francisco with her mother, EmmaRose, a successful geneticist and owner of Spiker Biotech. Sure, Evening misses her father who died mysteriously, but she’s never really questioned it. Much like how she’s never stopped to think how off it is that she’s never been sick. That is, until she’s struck by a car and is exposed to extensive injuries. Injuries that seem to be healing faster than physically possible.

While recuperating in Spiker Biotech’s lush facilities, she meets Solo Plissken, a very attractive, if off-putting boy her age who spent his life at Spiker Biotech. Like Evening, he’s never questioned anything... until now. Solo drops hints to Evening that something isn’t right, and Emma-Rose may be behind it. Evening puts this out of her mind and begins her summer internship project: To simulate the creation of the perfect boy. With the help of Solo, Evening uncovers secrets so big they could change the world completely.
So I finished up Eve and Adam late last night and I have to say I am a tad bit unimpressed. I had my hopes up so high just because *OMG, Michael Grant wrote the book!* I should learn to turn a blind eye to authors and covers. They always seem to get me into trouble.

The quality that first attracted me to this book was, of course, the cover. I know, the first thing they always tell you. DON'T judge a book by its cover. Well, I did... I totally fell in love with this cover. I just love the colors and the sci-fi feel!

Then I read the about hook, line and sinker. From that point I knew this had to be moved up past all of my other TBR books!

But, when I cracked open the book (or in my case, clicked on the cover) and started to read, my expectations took a You know those books that you open the cover and immediately get the I'm-going-to-absolutely-love-this-book vibe. Yep, didn't happen to me. I felt unwelcome if that makes any sense. Partly due to the characters and partly due to other miscellaneous things that just irked me.

I really, really did not like Evening. Firstly, he name drives me crazy! Who the heck names their kid Evening?! Her nicknames weren't much better. E.V. made me think of E.T. (I so didn't want to be thinking of an extraterrestrial creature while reading a book!) and Eve made me think of Adam and Eve! Besides her name, I found her so difficult to connect with. Her emotions were always changing and she was so influenced by others that she hardly counted as a person.

Solo was OK. Not fantastic and at times he was a little jerky. But, when he actually decided to show compassion I really enjoyed his character! Aislin (how the heck do you even say her name?) was a pretty bland character also. She played the standard my-boyfriend-has-so-many-flaws-but-I-still-love-him type of girl. I'm not one to be attached to someone like she was, so she bothered me. The only character I even remotely liked was Adam and he wasn't even a real, legal human!

The plot, it was OK. It was a tad bit slow for my liking and not much really happened. I wasn't really shocked by any of the twists, nor was I connected to anything about the story.

The end definitely held 95% of the action. I really enjoyed the last 50 pages, but I still couldn't fully enjoy them because none of the characters really held a connection with me. And, the end was a bit weird. I really feel like the ending was cut off funny. I'm not sure if the books will continue as a series or as a standalone.

Oh, and the book is marketed as a dystopian, but I really didn't find a dystopian feel. It was more of a mad scientist/ Frankenstein type of book.

Overall, Eve and Adam was just OK. I found the characters difficult to connect to and the plot be be boring. The book lacked a little in the action area also. I'm not really sure if I will be continuing with this series if there is one.

BBAW Interview Swap: Beth from Yes, folks. I run like a girl.

Hi everyone! Today I had the pleasure to interview Beth from Yes, folks. I run like a girl. as part of Book Blogger Appreciation Week!

Please introduce yourself-

I'm Beth, and I wear many hats: I'm a college instructor, a runner, a frequent flier, a data geek, a cook, a problem solver, and I'm a voracious reader. I blog at "yes, folks. i run like a girl." I also write for

What made you want to start a blog?

After 10 years of living in Southern California, I picked up and moved to the South (Pensacola, Florida, to be exact). I wanted to document my experiences in moving, and I also had a lot of free time on my hands when I first moved because I didn't know anyone yet!

What is your favorite genre to read?

I used to be a fiction junkie, reading almost every book by Isabel Allende and almost all of Stephen King's early work. But as I've gotten older I've fallen in love with non-fiction. I particularly like historical/biographical non-fiction. 'Angela's Ashes' by Frank McCourt got me hooked on biography. I also really enjoyed 'Dearest Friend: The Life of Abigail Adams' and 'Long Walk to Freedom' which is Nelson Mandela's autobiography.

I see you love to run! What has been your favorite race to run so far?

I really loved the Gulf Coast half marathon in Gulf Shores, AL last winter. The race only had about 400 people, the course was beautiful - winding through a park that took us past the beach and through marshes - and the food and festivities after the race were spectacular. The race was hosted at a place called Lulu's Home Port. Lulu, the owner, is Jimmy Buffett's sister and man can she throw a party! There was live music, comfortable seating, and plenty of good food. (Of course I love running, but being able to kick back and relax after the race is part of the fun!)

Besides running do you have any other hobbies?

Does reading count as another hobby? In all seriousness, when I'm not reading, running, or working, I travel as far and as often as I can. Some days that means visiting a nearby state park or historic site I haven't been to before, some days it means flying hundreds of miles to explore a new city. So if "travel" counts as a hobby, it's my favorite one!

I also love food. I enjoy both cooking and trying unique local dishes on my travels. Some of my favorite books have been food histories, like "Hungry Town: A Culinary History of New Orleans, the City Where Food is Almost Everything." That book captured many of my passions under one cover: travel, culture, and cooking... if there had just been a section on running, it would have been perfect!

Favorites Round

Food- Peanut butter!
Song- My taste in music depends on my mood and what I'm doing. I have a huge collection of hip hop and techno for running. Arcade Fire, Florence + The Machine, and The Black Keys are on repeat on my iPod. I also love blues, big band jazz, and zydeco, and I go to the symphony a couple of times a year... So I really do listen to a little bit of everything! But if I had to pick just one song, U2's Beautiful Day always makes me happy.
Movie- Honestly, I know this is going to sound sad, but I don't have a favorite movie! One movie I'll watch over and over again is the Batman movie 'The Dark Knight.' Loved that one!
Color- Red
Actor/ Actress- I don't watch enough movies or T.V. to have a strong favorite, but I really like Tina Fey. A friend gave me a copy of Bossypants for my birthday, and I can't wait to start reading it!

It was so awesome to get to know you Beth! I love to cook also, and Tina Fey totally rocks!

You guys can catch Beth over at her blog, Twitter , Pinterest , Facebook and StumbleUpon !

In My Mailbox (22)

Hi guys! Welcome to this weeks In My Mailbox, a meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren! I attended the Decatur Book Festival last weekend, but I managed to restrain myself and only bought one book. I had a few holds come in at the library!
Every Day by David Levithan- Guys, David Levithan totally rocked my socks when he spoke at the festival, so of course I HAD to buy his book. I had been ogling it for a while anyway and I have heard it is super fantastic. Even my mom wants to read it!
Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter- I adored the rest of the Gallagher Girls books, so I of course I had to request this one. I actually picked this book up at the libarary a while ago, but never got to it.
First Comes Love by Katie Kacvinsky- I read Awaken a while ago and remember liking it, so I decided to try out another one of her books. It's only 200 pages so it should be a pretty quick read. Oh, and the cover is kinda awkward. Definitely not bringing this one to read at school!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Author- Ransom Riggs
Published- June 7th, 2011
352 pages
Obtained from PBS

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. Fiction is based on real black and white photographs. The death of grandfather Abe sends sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and explores abandoned bedrooms and hallways. The children may still live.
I really surprised myself by liking this book. Usually weird is not my thing. I don't typically gravitate towards horror or fantasy for that reason. Somehow though, this book really sparked my attention and grabbed hold of me until the last sentence.

I think the cover of this book is really neat. Throughout the story there are many gorgeous and quirky photographs of peculiar children. I love how they took one of the photographs for use on the cover. It really matched the story well and did a great job of attracting me, the reader.

The concept of this book and it's overall layout is pretty cool. We start out in America where we meet Jacob and his aging grandfather. Jacob is just a typical teenage boy, except for the fact that his family owns a bajillion drugstores and is mega rich. He hates working, but loves to hang out with his friends. And his Grandpa is just your typical Alzheimer's-crazed-but-completely-awesome grandfather. He loves to tell stories about this peculiar home in the UK that he escaped to during WWII.

One night Jacob finds his Grandfather dead in the woods behind his house and starts to go a little crazy with grief. He decides it would be best to travel to his Grandfathers roots and see if all of the crazy stories his Grandpa had told him were really true. He ends up travelling with his dad to the itsy bitsy island where the home supposedly was. That is where all of the craziness begins!

We are introduced to a group of people suspended in the 1960's who continue to live the same day every day. Time resets, so no one ever ages. I really loved this concept! It added a great dimension to the book because it almost added a completely different plot line that was merged somewhere towards the end.

The characters were all so unique. Each had a peculiar quality that was really neat! It went anywhere from being able to float to being able to bring inanimate objects to life to being invisible. How cool is that! Each person had a unique voice and you were definitely able to distinguish who was speaking even after the introduction of so many characters.

This book read super fast. The story was written in such a way that it flowed effortlessly and was coupled with pictures to complete your vision of the character being described. When I was little I loved reading books with pictures, so the fact that and adult book was written with pictures too is awesome to me!

At the end of the story there was this incredible plot twist that I never saw coming. Seriously, it made the whole book! I was seriously wondering how the author was going to bring the book to a close in such a short span of pages. But he did, and he was even kind enough to provide a huge cliff hanger.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. The concept was unique, the characters were cool and I love the time travelling aspect. It definitely wasn't a tear-your-heart-into-a-million-pieces type of book, but it was still worth the read.

September TBR

Hi guys! Now that August decided to leave us behind, I am here with my September TBR. Most of these books I HAVE to read, either because I promised them to people, they are coming out soon, or have a library due date coming up. I am thinking 8 is a pretty manageable number, so I am hoping to get them all knocked out this month!
  • Unearthly by Cynthia Hand- I had this requested from me last month and I couldn't get to it, so I will definitely be reading it this month. Lots of my friends have read and loved this book, so hopefully I will also!
  • Incarnate by Jodi Meadows- Another book that was requested from me. I have also heard great things and I absolutely LOVE the cover!
  • Nolichuck by Jackson Keene- I received this one for review a few months back and I still have yet to read it! It looks cute and the font is pretty big, so I will be knocking this one out this month.
  • Beneath the Glitter by Elle and Blair Fowler- I got this book of of Netgalley last week and then I found out they were coming to my local mall for a book signing. I need to get this book read so I can determine if I want to go to the signing or not.
  • Starters by Lissa Price- I have been wanting to read this book for a while now and I got it from the library 2 weeks ago. I am trying to get it read before it is due!
  • Roots of Insight by Breeana Puttroff- I read the first book, Seeds of Discovery, a few months back and really liked it so I decided to join the blog tour for this one! I need to have it read by the end of the month so my post will be ready for early October.
  • Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter- I loved the first four books in this series, so I am excited to get to this one! It is due back at the end of the month so I am pushing to get it read!
  • First Comes Love by Katie Kacvinsky- I remember really liking Awaken when I read it, so I decided to try out another of Katie's books. It is a pretty short read, so it should be no problem to get read.
That's it for me! How many books are you hoping to read in September?

Decatur Book Festival- Recap

Hi everyone! I attended the Decatur Book Festival last Saturday, so now I am sharing with you my haul along with the pictures I took with all of the authors.
I had an awesome time, but Georgia decided to unleash its deadly heat/humidity combination. I was a pool of sweat most of the day, but thank goodness for the air conditioning (when I could get to it!).

The festival started around 10 AM, and the first event I attended was a Meet Up/ Q&A Session with Meg Cabot. Meg was absolutely hilarious and she had everyone in fits of laughter. We got a few tid bits about her upcoming works and future projects. Then I stood in an hour long line to get my books signed! It didn't really start heating up until noon, so I still look presentable in this me, it gets worse.

Then I headed over to the Teen Stage where I hung out for the rest of the day. We had some great authors presenting, so there was no where I would rather have been!

My mom and I stopped in for a quick lunch at Sammiches (I had a delicious Reuben!) which was right by the stage, then we ventured out of the AC to hear the authors speak.

David Levithan presented first. He was absolutely hilarious in his quirky way. He read a little bit of Every Day and the time he talked flew by so fast. By the end my mom even wanted to read Every Day! Luckily I had bought a copy of the book before the event started because when it came to signing time they were all sold out! Oh, and I absolutely love how he signed my book!

By then we were scorching and had some time to kill, so we popped into FroYoLo to get some frozen yogurt and cool down. It was delicious!

After that it was time to head back and see Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl present. They were fantastic (and crazy!). We got to know a lot about the upcoming Beautiful Creatures movie and how they came to become a writing team. Once they finished up it was a mad dash to the signing booth! Example A of the terrible sweaty mess pictures. I even caught Margaret as she was saying "I'm blind!"..haha

After that we had about an hour to kill, so we decided to just walk around and see what was going on. We popped in the Little Shop of Stories, this adorable indie bookstore in downtown Decatur. Then we stopped by a few artsy boutiques. I found this little deer head flower pot that was so adorable and I snapped a picture to show my dad (who just happens to be a hunter- poor Bambi :(

Finally, around 4 PM, Neal Shusterman spoke. He talked a lot about his inspiration behind Unwind (current news in England, abortion laws, etc.) and he read a little bit of UnWholly. By then we were all so tired there wasn't much of a mad dash to the signing line....more like a slow ambling. Neal was so nice and he even gave out signed posters for the Skinjacker Trilogy! Oh, and he warned me try and stay whole. I'll try Neal!

I had an awesome time, but I'm not sure if I would have been able to go back on Sunday, even if I wanted to! I couldn't wait to shower and put my feet up! I am really excited to go next year! Hopefully it is as fabulous as this years event was!

I hope y'all had a great Labor Day weekend!

In My Mailbox (21)

Howdy! Welcome to this weeks In My Mailbox, a meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren! I have stumbled across quite a few deals this week, so of course I had to snap them up! Also, I am headed to The Decatur Book Festival this weekend and will potentially be acquiring more books, so look out for that! I am super excited to be attending! This will be my first year and I am pumped to meet the numerous YA authors attending!
  • Enclave by Ann Aguirre- This book was on sale for 2.99 on Amazon, so of course I bought it. I have been meaning to read this book for a while, so now that I own it I won't have to keep paying library late fees for it!
  • Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey- I got this one for FREE on Amazon, and I have heard great things. Hey, I can't reject a free book, isn't that like against the law or something ;)
  • Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi- This one was a no brainer. I had to pre-order it and it was only 2.99. I am soooo excited, I absolutely loved Shatter Me. Plus, the new covers are gorgeous!
From NetGalley-
  • Beneath the Glitter by Elle and Blair Fowler- I am still not quite sure about this book. It was written by two YouTube fashion gurus whose videos I enjoy watching, so I had to request it. I'm just not quite sure how good their book writing skills are. I guess I shall see!
That's it for me! What did y'all get in your mailboxes?
Happy Labor Day!
