Ten Things Sloane Hates About Tru by Tera Lynn Childs
When life gives you a blank canvas, make art.

Sloane Whitaker hates everything about moving to Texas. She hates leaving behind her friends and half her family in New York, starting over senior year at Austin’s NextGen Academy, and having to say she lives in Texas. Most of all, she hates that it’s all her fault. If she wants to earn her way back to the Big Apple, she has to prove she can still be the perfect daughter.

Which means no vandalism art, no trouble at school, and absolutely no Tru Dorsey, her serial screw-up neighbor, who loves nothing more than pushing her buttons.

But from the moment he vaults onto the roof outside her bedroom, there is something about him that makes her want to break every rule. Suddenly it’s not the ten things she hates about Tru that are at the top of her list. It’s the ten reasons she doesn’t want to be without him.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains vandalism in the name of art, art in the name of love, and love for a boy too charming to ever hate.

crushhowwillagothergrooveHow Willa Got Her Groove Back by Emily McKay

When your life feels like a bad movie, rewrite the script.

When Willa Schofer’s father comes home from a business trip with an über-famous new fiancée, Willa’s senior year blows up in paparazzi-fueled flames. Overnight, she has a new house, a new car, and a new soon-to-be stepbrother—the unbelievably hot, unbelievably arrogant, Finn McCain. Thank god he’s constantly pushing her buttons, or she might do something irresponsible. Like fall for the jerk.

Just when Willa’s decided to avoid him for, oh, ever, Finn lands in the center of her senior project team. Seriously—how hard is it to shake a guy? At least her work on the project snagged the attention of the (second) hottest guy in school. He might only be into her because of her famous stepmom, and he’s not quite as exciting as a certain annoying housemate, but at least she’s allowed to crush on the guy.
Because crushing on your annoying stepbrother? So not cool.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains an unbelievably hot bad boy, an unbelievably famous actress, and all the drama that comes with adding both to your family. Oh, and a forbidden flirtation with a soon-to-be stepbrother.

crushcrazystupidCrazy, Stupid, Fauxmance by Shellee Roberts

After Mariely Hinojosa and Cabot Wheeler both break up with their significant others at the same party, Mariely sees a way to get even with both of their exes. Everyone knows that the best way to get over a breakup is a hookup—a fake hookup, that is. Three weeks, all fun, no strings, and definitely no heartbreak at the end.

But somewhere between the sweet hand-holding and melt-your-mind kisses, their fake relationship starts to feel less like an act and more like the real thing…but Mariely’s a free-spirited girl from the other side of the tracks, and Cabot’s the hot trust-fund guy from the Hills.

They’d never work for real…

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a kickass heroine, a boy so hot he’ll make you shiver, and a falling-in-love story fit for the big screen. You’ll want to settle in and have the popcorn ready.

crushthesecretlifeThe Secret Life of a Dream Girl by Tracy Deebs

Hiding in plain sight is harder than it looks…

Dahlia Greene—aka international pop superstar Cherry—is undercover as a normal high school student. She just wants to experience what real life is like, so when she overhears hottie Keegan Matthews nervously talking about liking a girl, she sees the perfect opportunity to live a real life and play a little matchmaker. What was not part of the plan was falling for a guy she can never tell the truth.

Keegan Matthews has been secretly crushing on Dahlia ever since she started at his school. Sure, Dahlia thinks he’s crushing on some other girl—not realizing his Dream Girl is actually her—but he figures, play along with her tips to woo someone else, let her get to know him, and then make his move. But with so many secrets in the mix, their romance is doomed from the start…

The third book is actually the one I will be reviewing. I was graciously provided with a code to obtain the book.  They retail for $29.99 US each. As you can see they are personalized and its so easy to do all you have to do is  just follow the easy instructions on the page and that is is within 5 minutes I had the in my cart and ready to go. Shipping was super fast and I had the book within a week of ordering it. Please note that you have until January 27th, 2015 to place an order to get it in time for Valentine’s Day.

The book is  beautifully bound like a regular hard cover picture book and it arrived in perfect condition.

I spent quite a bit of time trying to pick out the right book and I have to say that I think this is the perfect book. I loved reading as did Michael. I think this is perfect for kids no matter what age they are as the message is beautiful as is the story.

Within the last couple of months I have noticed that before bed time we go through about a 10 minute routine of Michael saying how much he loves me and then he will say how much do you love me and this can go on for another 10 minutes or so.

So when I spotted this book I knew it would be the perfect book to give him to read.

Michael, I can’t image life before you came along. You are the music to my dance and my song.

I am meant for you, and you are meant for me, the one I love forevermore. Undeniably.

The illustrations are bright and colorful and I think this could attract readers of all ages. The story line is easy and simple and its just great words kids should hear from their parents.

Movie Review/ The Maze Runner & Give Away

themazerunner

I was contacted by Think Jam a little awhile ago asking if I would like to be a part of The Maze Runner promotion and I instantly said yes because one I have never read the books (even though I own them) and secondly I have wanted to see the movie since I saw previews for it when it came out.

I was selected along with a handful of other bloggers (some that I knew and some that I didn’t) and we were all going to get to watch the movie and join in the twitter party (that happened on Friday Dec. 20th) with @JamesDashner . How fun does that sound?

I was a little late in getting to the twitter party because we had hockey but I quickly rushed home popped the dvd in and hit play. I fast forwarded the upcoming releases just because I was a little behind and quickly logged onto twitter to see all the action happening.

The Maze Runner is based on the first novel by James Dashner The Maze Runner which is part of a popular YA trilogy.

I wasn’t sure I was going to make it through the movie because let me tell you I am a huge chicken when it comes to scary stuff and at times I think I was looking through the cracks of my fingers and yes I did jump and perhaps let out a scream once or twice but I made it through and it was all fast paced and the movie just whipped through. When it ended I was like WTH? No it can’t end there has to be more.

What can I say about it? It was amazing and I am making plans to read the books this holiday season because I have to admit it feels like I am missing out on something. I know I should have read the book before but IRL happened.

The soundtrack was amazing and the music suited each scene perfectly. The setting was breath taking at times. I can’t describe it. It looked so real and made you believe that this could really happen. The maze was incredible and I can’t imagine how many hours went into making it.

I think Thomas was my favorite throughout the whole movie and I think when he remembered his name it made me cry and then there was Chuck who I instantly feel in love with and just wanted to reach into the movie and hug. The ending I wasn’t prepared for and literally cried through it.

There was also some pretty fun scenes through out the book that made me laugh which was nice.

This is definitely not something I would let Michael watch right away because its pretty scary when the Grievers were around. Even I was a little scared of them. Plus there was some language which I know he already knows and has heard on the school bus.

After seeing the movie I have to say I really need to read the books.

giveaway+button

So enough of my rambling because I feel as though I am the only one who hasn’t read the book. Anyways I have an awesome give away for 1 lucky reader of my blog. One of you will win a book/Blu-ray bundle. Which consist of a hardcover book “The Maze Runner” and a Blu-Ray dvd movie. The contest is open to Canada and USA.

To enter this all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me why you would like to win this bundle and I will randomly pick on comment to win. One comment only please, duplicates will be deleted.

Please note that you must include a email address so that I know how to contact you should you be the winner. If you are selected you will need to respond within 24 to 48 hours because a rep from Think Jam will be mailing out the prize and I would like to have it done by the end of the year.

So this is open now and will run until December 26th at 11:59pm.
