Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

Summer is a great time of the year to travel. See the world and see all the great places. But, what if you had the power to time-travel? That would definitely make a great trip, wouldn’t it? Well in Passenger by Alexandra Bracken, Etta Spencer a violinist is getting ready for the biggest performance of her life. Things are going as planned until is forced to run for her life when kidnappers are hot on her trail. Soon she stumbles into a mysterious girl who pushes her and next thing she knew woke up in on a ship in the middle of nowhere. Etta finds out she has time-traveled to 1776 and is on a pirate ship where she meets the handsome Nicholas Carter. In the story, she also learns that she comes from long line of time travelers and her mom is kidnapped. In order to get her back, she must find an object her mom stole. Throughout the story Etta and the help of Nicholas they travel through time and find an adventure of a lifetime. Can Etta find the object to get mom back?

The book Passenger has a combination of magic, time travel, romance, adventure and mystery that never stops. I had so much fun reading this book which was fast past as well. I am a huge fan of time-travel and pirates and so when I heard about this book I knew I must read it. I also liked the book that has a lot of plots twists that kept me guessing and unsure how it’s going to end. On the other hand, there are areas that I didn’t like. Sometimes when it comes to the hidden romance in the book, the characters tend to get overly descriptive of how they fill where it gets annoying and makes me want to move on. I also wished that the character went to more places as well. Probably I will get to see where the time-traveling will lead in the next book.

The Infinite Sea(The 5th Wave) by Rick Yancey Book Review

The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

Back to the end of the world of The 5th Wave. In The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey, we continue on where we left off bringing back characters: Cassie, Ben and Ringer in this post-apocalyptic world. The book brings the suspense and the thrillers of the book along with the science fiction areas along. Cassie must protect her brother while being forced to tag along with Ben and his friends after escaping Safe Haven. Cassie also must deal with the loss of Ethan. The Infinite Sea also focuses on the other main character Ringer when she goes on a mission on her own but turns for the worse when she is captured by the enemy. Throughout the story, the characters must do what they can to survive and confront their past. But also the character must deal with the truths that is behind the attack on humanity but The Others.

I was really excited to find out what happens next and see where the story leads me. The book kept the suspense and action that the first book had. I also enjoyed seeing my favorite characters in the book and getting to learn more about the other side characters from the first book. The book also has more plot twists and secrets that know how to get you guess without throwing everything at you at once. What I also liked is learning more about Ringers past and how she became Ringer we all know. Though the one thing I didn’t like was the structure of the book. I wish that since the book is split into sections I wish they would let us know which character’s point of view it is. It took me awhile to figure which character I am reading about.

Zenith (The Androma Saga) by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsey Cummings

On a great weekend like this, it’s great to enjoy some reading time. In fact, it’s a great excuse for keeping out of the sun. This weekend I was taken on a spaceship adventure in the book Zenith which is the first in the Androma Saga co-written by Booktuber Sasha Alsberg and author Lindsey Cummings. I was waiting a long time for this book and was excited to read on my Kindle reader in one sitting.

The book is science fiction book about a legendary Androma the Bloody Baroness who is the captain of the marauder a glass spaceship and rides along with her female comrades. One a normal mission the crew is interrupted by pursuers which including a bounty hunter who wants to capture her. Throughout the book, Androma and her female comrades try to outsmart her chasers but end up in deep water. Later she is forced to take a job in order to save her ship and her crew which forces her team up with the last person on Earth she would want to spend time with.

This is a fun book to read and I actually read it in one sitting. I loved it and can’t wait to read the next part to see how the story continues. I like how the book features strong female leads that can fight and know how to command a ship. The book also is fast-paced and full of action. I especially would like to ride a glass spaceship myself. Well, I hope you guys get a chance to read it and until then keep on reading.

Glass Sword (Book 2 Red Queen) by Victoria Aveyard

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

If you are a fan of Red Queen then get ready for the second in the series Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. If you have got to read the book Red Queen then check out my review on the book here than come back read this review. Glass Sword was a great follow up with action, intense emotions and twist that would keep you going. I was really happy to finally read this since it been sitting my shelf since it came out in March. On to the synopsis.

Glass Sword throws back after Mare and Cal escape their execution. Along with the help with the Scarlet Guard and Mare’s back from the dead brother Shade escape the hands of Maven. Soon they find out that Scarlet Guard is bigger than Mare and Cal thought.  Later Mara is tasked with finding others like her. Red blood with silver powers. In order to save them from Maven and the army before their doom. Mare goes on the mission along with Cal, Killorn, Shade and Farley to find the hidden new bloods and hopes to train them to help stop Maven.

Throughout the book, it was a like a race against time because Mare and the others must use their smarts due the fact that Maven also knows where the new bloods are. Mare also struggles with in demons and must avoid capture as well.

I really enjoyed seeing the other side characters have more scenes through the story. I really like Shade and seeing Farley in the story since they tend to be one of the coolest characters in the stories. I also liked how the story covers themes from learning to accept yourself, and how to believe in yourself. The story also brings issues like prejudice between the color of blood, and idea of being lost. Mare struggles with finding herself and not sure who she is throughout the story. Cal also struggles to find himself in the world of reds after losing his place as a prince.  The story is great and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

Undivided

This week I finally completed one of my goals and that is to complete the Unwind Dystology. If you never heard of the series this a series written by Neal Shusterman. What got me hooked to the series is the strong world building and the way it makes you feel when reading each of the books. The first book of the series is Unwind and takes place years after this war called the Heartland War has taken place. This is the a civil war in the US between the pro-life and the pro-choice people. During the war kids and teens are going crazy and parents are scared. Soon there was solution to deal with the feral teens and end the war….Unwinding. Years later, we meet the three main characters Risa, Connor and the tithe Lev who are sent to be unwinded. On the way they escape and are forced to work together to survive and to keep themselves whole. This thrilling book will get you hooked to the series from the beginner from the way it was written. As with most Neal Shusterman books, he knows how to grab your attention and carry you on for the ride without coming short. Another aspect that I liked throughout the series the questions asks you and the way your force to think. If you are into stories that make you think about the what ifs, this is one of those. The book is a mixture of Hunger Games, Divergent and most books that involve teens are to survive.
