Book Review: Requiem (Delirium #3) by: Lauren Oliver

Release Date: March 5, 2013
from Harper Collins
Goodreads | Amazon

"Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven. Pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels.

As Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain of the Wilds, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena and Hana's points of view. They live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge."

My Thoughts:

Alright before I start this rant review I need to warn you that there will be spoilers for Delirium and Pandemonium. There is just too much to discuss that is directly related to those books. I’ve put Requiem off for years now. Mostly because the general consensus was not overly positive for this one and now I see why. Sadly Requiem and I did not get along. There was a lot that bugged me about this one and it breaks my heart because I loved Delirium.

I’m going to start with Lena. First off, I admire how far she has come and how much she has grown. But she also drove me absolutely insane. She REFUSES to see things that are right in front of her. And I’m not talking subtle things the reader picks up on, they were glaring. Also I hated how she treated both Julian and Alex. And normally I hate when people rag on the girl for making the boys sad but I just didn’t like her actions. I mean, five seconds in her brain and you KNOW who she truly loves. There is no back and forth, you know it without a doubt. But when that person isn’t available she just settles for second best and that aggravates me because it’s not fair to the person she is settling for. I normally have nothing against love triangles, but that’s because I usually see how the center of the triangle truly loves both parties and truly doesn’t know what she wants. Not the case here and not a fan.

And now I have to talk about Alex because he is my favorite and this book didn’t do him justice. I don’t know what Lauren Oliver has against Alex and actually giving him page time, but clearly she has something against it. Look the end to Delirium absolutely gutted me. I cried for hours after I finished it. But I also thought it was beautiful and Alex’s sacrifice was courageous and part of me wishes that was where the story ended. Is it heartbreaking? Absolutely. But it’s also gorgeous. That book is still one of my all-time favorites and I separate it from the sequels in my head. To this day I still remember exactly how I felt when Lena turned around and saw that Alex didn’t follow and I remember the drop in my stomach and the tears that followed. That book impacted me in a way that sadly the sequels did not and I really wish that that moment had been the end knowing what I know now. I feel like Alex’s sacrifice was cheapened by adding in a love triangle and by the events in Requiem.


And then there is Hana and the addition of her perspective. I’m sorry. I never cared and I still did not care about Hana after this one and I could have gone without her perspective.

The other thing is that this book felt incredibly repetitive. It was the same thing over and over. And then we finally get to somewhat of a climax and it just fell completely flat. I don’t even know what happened or what they achieved. And I have no clue what I’m supposed to do with that ending. There are aspects I’m happy with but I just do not know.

I have to give credit where credit is due though. The writing is absolutely gorgeous. There is no denying that Lauren Oliver is an incredibly talented author. It’s just the story in this case didn’t work for me in a lot of aspects.

All in all, I’m glad I finally got around to Requiem and I can say I finished the series. I needed the closure of finishing the series, even though I still have questions. Delirium will forever be one of my favorite books and I don’t think even the sequels can take that away from me. That final scene from Delirium is forever imprinted in my brain and nothing can ruin that for me.

Parents feel hopeless. Friends feel helpless. And the boy who loves her continues his search. When ten years go by, The community has forgotten. Parents cling to the past. Friends move toward the future. And the boy who loves her . . . Brings her home. Jade Childs spent ten years in captivity, but now that she’s back, the real battle for survival begins. The media shadows her. Flashbacks haunt her. Her old life evades her. Her so-called new life rejects her. She spent too many years in the dark to recognize the light. She spent too long repressing her feelings to remember how to express them. She spent a decade abandoning hope and cannot dare letting it back into her life. Jade’s not just defined by what happened to her—she’s collared to it. When the twenty-seven-year-old woman is found, A community wants to know the story, Parents want to forget the story, Friends want to be a part of the story, And the man who still loves her faces the greatest challenge yet: letting her go.

Excerpt:
He holds my eyes, not letting them wander away from him. “Why have you been avoiding me?” 
I wander my room, not sure where to go now that he’s here. I’m not sure where I fit now. I’m not sure where I belong in his life. 
“You know why,” I say quietly. 
“I want to hear you tell me.” 
“Why?” 
“So I can change your mind.” His hands slide into his front pockets, and the sunlight catches on his dad’s watch and casts golden beams through the room. It lights up like someone just lit a million candles at once. “I can’t do that unless I know exactly why you don’t want to see me.” 
He wants a reason? I’ll give him a whole list of them. 
“Because I don’t want to drag you into my mess of a world any more than I already have. Because I don’t want to smear you through the mud on the media’s march to burying me. Because I don’t want to hurt you—again—and because I want to protect you.” 
“I can protect myself from them.” 
I shake my head and cover my chest with my hand. “To protect you from me.” 
Torrin’s jaw hardens. He works it loose the moment after. “I don’t need protection from you.” 
“Everyone needs protection from me. There’s something dark in me now, Torrin, and I can’t get it out. It’s growing, spreading, and I don’t want it to infect the people I love.” 
He pushes off the closet doors and crosses the room before I know he’s coming. “There is nothing dark in you, Jade. Nothing.” He backs me into the wall and stares at me, unblinking. “There is light and good in you. There always has been. There always will be.”
“That’s gone. He took it from me.” 
“No, he didn’t.” Torrin’s hand slams into the wall beside my head. “It’s still there. You had to bury it to keep it safe, but it’s still there. You’ll find it. I know it.” 
I want to believe him, but that doesn’t make it true. “You can’t find what isn’t there, Torrin.” 
“Dammit, stop talking like that,” he says, his jaw tensing. “It’s there. I know it.” 
“I’ve tried. I can’t find it.” Even as I say it, I start to feel different. It’s because of him being so close, saying what he is in the way he is. He’s the tether that keeps me from floating away. 
His eyes lower to mine. “I’ll help you find it.” 
I feel my heart again. My lungs. Everything else. I feel it waking up. “What makes you so sure you can find it?” 
“Because when I look in your eyes, I still see it.” His other hand fits against the wall beside my head. “Because when I’m close to you like this, I can still feel it.” He leans a little closer, and I feel something too. “It’s there, Jade. It’s not gone. He took ten years of your life—ten years.” The corners of his eyes crease as an emotion fires in his eyes. “Don’t hand him the rest of it by believing that kind of shit.”

On My Shelf: Before I Fall by: Lauren Oliver

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.


I have had this book for a really long time now. I think I bought it after I first finished  and fell in love with Delirium. But then I just didn't get around to it and after finishing the Delirium trilogy and not loving Panic I just am not sure about this one anymore. It sounds good and I know it has gotten a ton of praise, but I'm worried. With the movie coming though if I'm going to read it, I think it should be soon. So yeah, I'm torn on this one.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?

Nicole Speaks: Destined For An Early Grave (Night Huntress #4) by: Jeaniene Frost


Every now and then my sister drops by the blog to join me in my book rambling and share her thoughts. 
If you want to know more about Nicole, click here.

Release Date: July 28, 2009
from Avon
Goodreads | Amazon

"Her deadly dreams leave her in grave danger

Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they've fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it's time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She's having visions of a vampire named Gregor who's more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn't know about.

Gregor believes Cat is his and he won't stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor's hold over her. She'll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she's ever faced . . . even if getting that power will result in an early grave."

Nicole Speaks:

I had fallen in love with this series more than I had ever expected to, but if I am being entirely honest book four infuriated me especially in comparison to the amazing first three books.  There were major problems within the vampire world, and they seemed more preoccupied with arguing with each other. Don't get me wrong, I am not mad that they had relationship problems. It would be extremely naive of me to imagine they would never fight again and that they would have some fake perfect relationship.  Their huge dramatic and almost detrimental fight didn't bother me at all. But the never ending whiny fighting before that made me furious. There was so much going on why must they bicker every 5 pages!?  And then after they were done fighting, for her to just write her attitude off as a side effect of medicine? I was extremely angry at the characters in the book. The main redeeming aspect of the book was how close she  got with Vlad while fighting with Bones. I love Vlad and they have an amazing friendship.  Vlad seems like one of her only guy friends where she doesn't have to worry about any secret feelings.  I might have been very angry reading this book, but I still love the story and characters.  I'm really hoping the next book in this series leaves me as happy as the first three did!

Release Blitz: Finding North by: Carmen Jenner




Title: Finding North 
Author: Carmen Jenner
Genre: Erotic Romance M/M
Release Date: February 25, 2016

Red Maine’s blue-collared bad boy, North Underwood, has a dirty little secret—Will Tanner.

Friends since kindergarten, North had been the one to jump first, and his fall into Will’s bed ten years ago had been no exception. Will and North had been inseparable, but things change, people grow apart, and even a blazing flame can dwindle to a dying ember over time.

The more things change the more they stay the same.
After a run in with a bottle of Bundy rum, Will and North find themselves in a compromising and all too familiar position.


Blurred lines, bad decisions, and one wrong foot after another lead these two down a spiral of sarcasm, secrets, and sex, but when North’s hetero status is called into question he can’t figure up from down. And despite Will telling himself he wouldn’t fall again, he’s head over heels and wandering without a compass.

Love is love.

Love is truth.

Love … shouldn’t be this damn hard to figure out.


AMAZON US / UK / CA / AU



Excerpt

I push my glass towards him for another refill, downing the shot of liquid courage. “You ever think about what might have been?”

Will scoffs and sets his glass down. “You’re seriously asking me this?”

“What?” I say, getting pissy now, because he acts as though he’s the only one who lost something. “I can’t ask a question?”

He takes another sip, avoiding my gaze. The humour has left his face; his mouth forms a tight line as he stares down into his drink. “You can’t ask that question.”

“Okay then,” I say, agitated that he’s calling the shots. I ask a question I’ve been wanting the answer to for a very long time. “Why didn’t you leave?”

“Jesus, not you too.” Will shakes his head. “You sound like Josh.”

“Who the hell is Josh?”

He slams back the rest of his drink and beats his fist against his chest. “Fuck buddy.”

“You have a fuck buddy?” I clench my jaw. I’m starting to see why Bundy has a bad name. Right now, I’d like to find Josh and beat his fucking head in.

Will laughs. “Look at you getting all jealous.”

Is he fucking kidding me?

“How long?” I say through my teeth.

“How long have I been fucking him? Or how long is his cock? It’s about five for both.”

“Five what?” I snap. “Days? Weeks?”

“Months.” He rests his elbow on the bar, dangling his glass from his long fingers. “And inches.”

“You been fucking this Josh for five months, and you didn’t think to mention it?”

“I’ve fucked a lot of men in the last twelve years, North. Why would I mention any of them to you?”

“I kissed you.”

“Yeah, and I didn’t ask for it,” he says, swirling the liquor in his glass. “How many women have you slept with in the past twelve years?”
I don’t have an answer for him. I don’t even remember half of their names, only that I was fumbling around in a drunken stupor, trying to grab onto just a little bit of happiness. On the outside I have all my shit together, but inwardly I’m hollow. I’m the worthless piece of shit my father always told me I was, and I’d bury my dick in anyone in an attempt to find something that made me feel even half of what Will had that summer.

Cover Reveal: Touch The Sky by: Christina Lee & Nyrae Dawn


"Lucas Barnett and Gabriel Stewart didn’t have it easy as kids. They were only trying to deal with bad situations at home when they became lifelines for each other. Their pipe dream was to someday meet in LA, where Lucas would design skyscrapers, and Gabriel would learn to fly. But then Gabriel disappeared without so much as a goodbye, and Lucas got himself in trouble with the law.
Five years later, both men are at a loss when they run into each other at a Hollywood bar. Lucas is still angry, but it’s not as if Gabriel could control how his mind and body had betrayed him. Being found on the ledge of that bridge had changed everything.
The attraction is immediate, but it’s more than their inability to keep their hands off each other. Neither man expects the fierce connection pulling them together. Unfortunately, ignoring their problems doesn’t make them disappear. Gabriel’s internal struggles are serious…dangerous. And no matter how much Lucas wants it to be true, saving Gabriel won’t make up for not being able to save his mom. If they don’t find the strength to face their own demons before the darkness takes hold, they risk more than just losing each other forever."

Waiting On Wednesday #181: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine
It spotlilghts upcoming releases that we are dying to read.

Add To Goodreads

"Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne, is the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. It will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on 30th July 2016 

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.." 






Okay look... I am very very torn on this. On one hand, I am very happy with the way the Harry Potter series wrapped up and I am very hesitant to see the Golden Trio thrown into more drama and problems. I don't know if I want to see them in their adult lives because in my head they are all happy and everything is grand. So this "eighth book" has me worried because it could crush all of my illusions. Also, its not even a book penned by JK Rowling and that could end badly. But at the end of the day, as with all things Harry Potter, I will be reading this one and I hope and pray that it doesn't crush my hopes and dreams.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be released on July 31, 2016.
What are you waiting on?

Book Review: Titans by: Victoria Scott

Release Date: February 23, 2016
from Scholastic
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
"From Victoria Scott, author of FIRE & FLOOD, comes a thrilling story of impossible odds.

Ever since the Titans first appeared in her Detroit neighborhood, Astrid Sullivan’s world has revolved around the mechanical horses. She and her best friend have spent countless hours watching them and their jockeys practice on the track. It’s not just the thrill of the race. It’s the engineering of the horses and the way they’re programmed to seem so lifelike. The Titans are everything that fascinates Astrid, and nothing she’ll ever touch.

She hates them a little, too. Her dad lost everything betting on the Titans. And the races are a reminder of the gap between the rich jockeys who can afford the expensive machines to ride, and the working class friends and neighbors of Astrid’s who wager on them.

But when Astrid’s offered a chance to enter an early model Titan in this year’s derby, well, she decides to risk it all. Because for a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, it’s more than a chance at fame or money. Betting on herself is the only way she can see to hang on to everyone in the world she cares about."

My Thoughts:

Titans delivers an engaging read with a great concept. It also delivers fantastic, yet quirky, characters that you cannot help but fall in love with. This is a quick read that is very easy to get lost in. It has a very addictive quality to it and I loved that.

Our main character Astrid is great and I really loved her. She is incredibly strong and determined and I admired her in so many ways. I cannot imagine being 17 and in her position. Her family is on the brink of being evicted and when she has the chance to take part in the Titan races she doesn't even hesitate. But that isn't even the crazy part, her plans for the winnings and really her drive for the whole thing is to save her home and her friend's home. That is not normal 17 year old thinking and I loved her for that. I loved that her first thought was never for herself but for everyone around her.

Speaking of everyone around her, this book delivers a fantastic set of secondary characters. I absolutely adored Magnolia. She was a fantastic friend to Astrid and I cannot stress how much I loved the portrayal of a positive female friendship. No jealousy or drama... they were truly there for one another and did nothing but build one another up. I really loved this so so much. I also adored Rags, Barney, and Lottie. All three of them are great and were such a support to Astrid. Her family though. They made me rage. I have a few choice words for her father but I will not subject you guys to them.

What I also loved about this one was the pace. It moved along very quickly. The chapters were super short and I really liked that. It just kept the pace going. I also love that this book doesn't fit into one genre really. I struggled with where to shelve it. It definitely has sci-fi elements because of the mechanical horses, but then it's fantasy because this whole concept isn't something that exists, it had action, but then it read like a contemporary. I mean, the mechanical horses don't exist in our world, but this book really felt like our world simply with the addition of the horses and I thought that was cool. And just in case anyone cares, in the end I shelved it as a fantasy since that is where Amazon had it shelved. 

Now speaking of mechanical horses... Padlock... I loved Padlock. The Titans element was so incredibly cool and I fell in love with Padlock. I want my very own please and thank you.

All in all, Titans is a really good read and is definitely worth the read. The concept is cool and it moves at a great pace. #TitansJockey forever! 

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Enjoyed Recently That Weren't My Typical Type Of Book


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish.

I love the topic this week. I'm always looking to read something outside my comfort zone, and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. So here are some books that were not your normal Teresa books, but I loved them all the same. Whether it is something darker, more steamier than normal, or a YA contemp (cause I struggle with those)... these reads all had me slightly worried going in. Also I only have seven books this week, *shrugs*.

The Monday Musts 2/22/2016

The Monday Musts is a weekly feature hosted by the awesome Jessica at Lovin Los Libros. This is a fun way to share a must read book, a must listen to song/album/artist, and a must see (can be anything). I'm really excited to be taking part in this feature and I'm sure it will be a ton of fun.

Must Read:
This week I am recommending Slumber  by Samantha Young. I first fell in love with Samantha's books when I read On Dublin Street (which remains one of my all time favorites). But recently I finally dived into one of her fantasy books and I adored it. Slumber was a great read with a great world and a wonderful slow burn romance. 

Must Listen:
If I'm being honest, I'm still listening to Hamilton non-stop. But I figure I can't keep sharing Hamilton stuff. I mean I just did the Hamilton tag over the weekend haha. So I decided to feature a song from another one of my favorite Broadway plays.. Newsies. Guys... this play was so ridiculously good. The dance nerd in me was obsessed with the choreography. Seize The Day is my favorite song from the soundtrack and I hope you guys like it too. 

Must See: 
My nerd side is showing here, but don't care. On a whim recently I put on the Star Wars Clone Wars TV Cartoon on Netflix. I really don't know what prompted this, I think I was looking for something that I wouldn't really need to focus on and I somehow wound up here. Well color me surprised when I became addicted and just kept watching episode after episode. It really is a lot of fun. Unlike a lot of people, I liked the prequel trilogy, they aren't the original movies but I still enjoyed them and teenage Teresa had a hardcore crush on Anakin Skywalker. I have been known to do full scene by scene breakdowns of things that could have gone differently and prevented his downfall. But anyway, one of my favorite parts of the prequels is the beginning of Revenge of the Sith and the back and forth between Obi Wan and Anakin. I loved their relationship there and basically this cartoon is a lot of that banter. There are also some great new characters and basically it is just fun.
