Review: Falling to Pieces by Jamie Canosa

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

"There are different kinds of wounds people can inflict on us, Jade. Just because yours aren't physical doesn't mean they aren't there. Just because they aren't visible doesn't mean I can't see them."

Synopsis:
Suffering the bitter tongues of her alcoholic mother and cruel boyfriend, Jade struggles just to look at herself in the mirror. She hates her life, her insecurities, her ineptitudes, but most of all . . . Jade hates herself. She wants nothing more than to disappear, and everyone seems happy to let her. Until Kiernan Parks moves back into town.

Jade’s been crushing on him ever since kindergarten, when his family moved away. But now he’s back, and looking better than ever.
Hiding is a way of life for Jade, but Kiernan insists on uncovering the real girl he’s sees trapped inside her. On drawing her out of her shell, and showing her that she is someone worthy of love.

Together, they fight back the darkness she’s living in. But when they finally step into the light, will the secret Kiernan’s been trying to keep buried destroy Jade, once and for all?

For some people, happy endings are a fairytale.
My Review:
          I just had to postpone the review with a day. I needed serious recovery after I finished reading Falling to Pieces. After Fight or Flight and Sink or Swim I was sure that I already had two favorite titles from Jamie Canosa, but Falling to Pieces successfully squeezed itself to the top places in my preferences. I have no words to express what I felt after I closed the book; it was both sad and beautiful.

          In the beginning Jade is that kind of character at which you feel the need to scream because she would do what others tell her to do. It was infuriating how she gave up living because her drunken mother insisted that she was no good and no one would want her. I tried not to get mad because in one way I understood. Her mother was the only constant person in her life and she made her feel small with every occasion. Not to mention that she had to go through that again at school where her boyfriend treated her like an accessory.

          Yes, normally this kind of character would make me want to scream at the book, but Falling to Pieces had more than a character with low self-esteem, it was a story in which an apparently weak girl grew stronger. Then the book made me want to know more and hope for the best when Kiernan showed up in Jade’s life. Because he was everything everyone in her life wasn’t and he was determined to make her see that she is more than others make her feel.

          Falling to Pieces is a beautiful story with characters that evolve in a visible way, with likable characters even in their worst moments.

          But most of all I loved the relationship between Kiernan, his brother, Caulder and their mother. They are the most supportive family I have ever read of. And not only they supported each other, but they all welcomed Jade in their family and made her feel like she belonged somewhere.

"The one thing I want more than anything, the one thing nobody can give me, is a future. And you’ve just done exactly that. You gave me the perfect future. The perfect life all right here in the pages of this book.”

          But the ending was heartbreaking. Just prepare for serious crying.

Excerpt:

Alec walked through the front door of Lucy and Rene’s third-floor apartment. Alec loved the open feel of their apartment—the ceilings opened to the roof peak, and skylights offered sunlight down into the room even on cloudy days. Rough-hewn wooden beams crossed the ceiling from wall to wall, where the wall met the roofline, affording the apartment an industrial chic look.
Celeste and Lucy sat on the couch. Alec felt a certain apprehension as he entered the room and Celeste and Lucy looked up (and it almost seemed planned to Alec) smiling in a too friendly manner. “Where’s Adam?” Celeste said.
“On his way,” Alec said and squatted on the floor next to Sam and Rene. “‘Sup?”
They both nodded. “Just chilling right now,” Rene said, and they bumped fists.
“Sandman,” Sam added. “Lucy was just telling us about her master’s thesis on semiotics.” Sam flashed him a “save us” look.
Alec stifled a smirk. “My sister loves anthropology.”
“And languages,” Lucy corrected.
“Hey, I hope you don’t mind, but I invited my friend to join us,” Celeste said.
Alec felt the muscles in his back go rigid. “Look, guys, we talked about this. I don’t—”
Sam cut in, “Jared’s cool.”
A quizzical look crossed Rene’s face as he watched the exchange, then he shrugged as his eyes met Alec’s.
Alec heard footsteps on the stairs outside. “That’s Adam coming. I’ll give him a hand.”
“I didn’t hear anything,” Rene said.
“He’s got fucking bat ears, man,” Sam said.
Alec crossed the long living room to the front door. “Need a hand, Adam?” He asked as he yanked the door open. A young man, about his own age, (maybe a little older, Alec thought) stood at the door with his hand raised, about to knock. A plain white V-neck tee shirt hugged his torso, and Alec could see sprouts of chest hair in the V. Black rimmed glasses framed his eyes and his glossy dark hair was parted on the side and slicked back. His scruffy beard added an air of carelessness to an otherwise polished look.
His eyes met Alec’s and his face brightened with a warm smile that made his green eyes sparkle. “Knock, knock,” he said.
Alec leaned out the door, “I was expecting my brother.”
“Jared,” the young man said, extending his hand.
Alec shook it. “Nice to meet you.” Alec turned his head, quickly shooting a narrow-eyed glance at Lucy and Celeste. They both blinked innocently. He turned back to Jared. “Celeste said you were coming.”
“Ah, she warned you.”
“Did I need warning?”
Jared gave another easy smile. “Perhaps.”

Review and Giveaway: Blissfire by D.e.e.L

Sunday, November 10, 2013

I pack a few writers’ magazines to read when I need to feel hopeful, though I’m always hopeless.

Synopsis:

Indulge yourself with these ten stories surrounding the endless chase for bliss that we are all constantly running. Each story focuses on a character that is striving to find that happiness that will change everything. Some chase after their dreams, others need to fill the wounds of their hearts, and some even need to be reminded of who they truly are. From down into a bottle to writing under a bridge, bliss comes to us in many forms. Each story pushes and compels you into the next as you meet new people and learn their worlds of mind. Written in a poetic tone, this collection offers a read from the heart.
I was chasing my own bliss while writing this, filling the wounds of my own heart just as each character does. Follow them along and join in their strides for the eternal bliss we all crave, perhaps even discovering your own during the ride.

My Review:

          I needed to read Blissfire two times, because some of the stories were so deep that I missed reading them. I enjoyed the style in which they were written and I found them rather different.

          Blissfire is a collection of 10 short stories the have some themes in common and which presents different stages of any person's life. Because I rarely read short stories collections I will do my best to speak about the entire book and not about each story.

          What themes have all these stories in common? Solitude, struggle and broken dreams. Most of the characters live with regret in their heart because they couldn't fulfill their dreams and ended up doing something entirely different. I don't think that only writers find themselves in Blissfire. We struggle our entire lives to play by societies’ rules, to work just to make money in order to survive, postponing our dreams until there's nothing left.

          The Blissfire characters find themselves in this kind of life, a life in which they did their best to have a house, a family, a job and they abandoned their life as a writer, a hero, a creator.
Each story begins with a revelation in each character's life and that revelation is triggered by a tragedy or an important event and each of them cope with it differently.

          My favorite story was Blissfire. I admired the courage of the character to walk away for a little bit and try to find himself. The loved the solitary adventure on which he went, the way he laid back and did not care how he went further and further. Of course I did not imagined that his bliss would be an actual fire and I still liked the story, but the ending kind of shocked me.

          Each and every one of these stories has something different and I assure you that you will love them. So don't miss them out.

Author Bio:

D.e.e.L has been writing most of his life; though as a child the stories made much less sense and contained much fewer words, as well as some poorly drawn pictures. Becoming anything but a writer has never been something to cross his mind (though he currently works a day job which makes it that much more painful). He grabs any second within the ticking hands to create new worlds of words and chooses some of them to post online to his many blogs; hoping only to have at least one person obtain a smile upon reading. He has one story collection out so far titled "Blissfire" , which is available on lulu.com, and many other stories and poetry collections on Smashwords. He also wrote this entire bio himself, which made wording things rather awkward and he hopes that he doesn't sound conceited.

Excerpt and Giveaway: My Sister’s Reaper by Dorothy Dreyer Blast

Thursday, October 17, 2013
my sisters reaper  
Synopsis
Sixteen-year-old Zadie’s first mistake was telling the boy she liked she could bring her dead sister back to life. Her second mistake was actually doing it. When Zadie accidentally messes with the Reaper’s Rite that should have claimed her sister Mara, things go horribly wrong. Mara isn’t the same anymore—Zadie isn’t even sure she’s completely human, and to top it off, a Reaper is determined to collect Mara’s soul no matter what. Now Zadie must figure out how to defeat her sister’s Reaper, or let Mara die … this time for good.



Excerpt:

“So are we going to do this, or what?” Danny asked.

“First, the preparations,” Naomi said. She swung the canvas bag over her head and crouched down on the floor to unzip it. From it, she pulled a plastic bag, a lighter, and a game box with the word Ouija on it. “Help me with the candles, Zadie.”

Pulling tea-light candles from the plastic bag, Naomi and I placed them in a large circle on the floor.

“Nice touch, right?” she whispered when our heads were close together.

Gavin picked up the lighter and brought our circle of fire to life. Naomi and I looked at each other as we sat on the floor, our knees bent toward the glow of the candlelight. Gavin sat next to me, then gestured with his head to his best friend. Danny sighed, running a hand over his short hair before joining us in the circle beside Naomi.

“Zadie,” Naomi said.

“What?”

“Ready?”

“Oh. Yeah, sure.”

“Remember,” Naomi said as she started unpacking the Ouija board, “once the spell works, you two have to take us out on a double date.”

“If it works,” Danny said.

“When,” Naomi insisted.

“Did you ever notice that Ouija is made up of two foreign words for yes?” Gavin said. “Oui which is French, and ja which is German. Isn’t that strange?”

“You know what else is strange?” Danny said, turning off his flashlight. “That people still buy these things.”

Naomi snapped a reply, but I didn’t hear the words. Suddenly, all I could think about was Mara. What would happen if the doctors couldn’t live up to their promise? What if Mara was lost to me—and Dad—forever? What if this thin excuse to spend time with Gavin was the only chance I had to save my sister?

I shook my head. I felt the others watching me, but I ignored them, staring at the candlelight as if it would give me answers. If I tried to bring Mara back and failed, I would lose hope too. But what if Mara died, and I’d never even tried to save her?

A strange feeling came over me, like a buzzing in my bones. I found myself focused on the glow of candlelight. Everything else went fuzzy, disappearing into the dark.

“We don’t need the board,” I told Naomi as she moved to place it in the middle. “Put it away.”

“What?”

“I don’t need the Ouija board.”

“Ooh, you’re giving me chills,” she said. “Awesome!”

She set the board and pointer aside, and I reached out my hands to Danny and Gavin. Gavin’s hand felt warm in mine. My fingers brushed against some calluses on his palm. His touch was rough, but nice. Danny looked away from Naomi when she slid her hand into his.

I closed my eyes and thought about my sister. About how she used to let me squeeze into bed with her when I was little and couldn’t sleep. About how she held me the whole night when our mother was taken away, wiping away my tears and telling me it was going to be all right. I tightened my grip on Gavin’s hand. She had to wake up. She just had to.

A jumble of sounds suddenly tumbled from my lips—sounds from a language I didn’t recognize. The voice was mine, but the movements of my tongue and teeth were not. My fingers tingled, and the flames from the candles grew warmer. My blood felt electric. Still chanting, I slowly opened my eyes. My three companions stared at me. I stopped, my mouth falling silent.

For a moment, nothing happened. We simply looked at each other, waiting. A chill crept up my neck. In that instant, wind whipped through our circle, making the candles flicker wildly. There was a sound, like plastic scraping wood, and my eyes darted to the Ouija board Naomi had set aside. My body jerked, as if I’d been holding a huge mass of energy inside of me and it had suddenly escaped.

The buzzing and electric feeling were gone. I felt like I was going to throw up. What had I just done?

“It moved,” Naomi said.

“What did?” Danny asked.

“The pointer on the board.”

“No way,” Gavin said. “Where is it pointing?”

We all scrabbled over to look at the board, but the second we reached it, all the candles went out.

Review and Giveaway: The Funny Adventure of Little Nani by Cinta Garcia de la Rosa

Saturday, September 21, 2013
Synopsis:

Little Nani is a little girl who likes helping people. However, when she helps people the results can be a bit unexpected. Why is that? Little Nani is a witch! Or at least she wants to be a witch. With her magic wand, she will try to cast different spells to help her friends, but she won’t be successful all the time. Follow Little Nani in her funny adventures and meet her extraordinary friends. Funny ostriches, horses that love reading, super-fast turtles, grumpy zombies… Little Nani has lots of friends! You can also draw your own characters! Little Nani is willing to become a good witch. Will she manage to do it? Who knows? Read the stories and discover what happens next!






Excerpt:

“I’m bored!”
“How can you say that you are bored when I am reading to you one of the funniest books I have read in a long time?” said Horse in an exasperated tone. When Little Nani shrugged her shoulders,
Horse had retreated to his favourite rocking chair in a corner of the room.
“Can I go out and make angels?” asked Little Nani, who was upside down, standing on her hands.
“Don’t be silly. You can only make angels in the snow, not in the rain,” said Horse without raising his eyes from the book.
“Can I go out and jump in the pools?” asked Little Nani, who was hopscotching all over the room.
“If you go out you will get soaking wet, and then you will catch a bad cold, and then you won’t be able to go out for a long time,” said the impatient horse. He didn’t like being interrupted while reading.
“Then I will cast a spell to make the sun come back,” said Little Nani, trying to take her magic wand out of her pocket while rolling on the floor. Big Billy, watching her efforts to take her magic wand out, and  fearing that Little Nani could make the rain turn into a tempest, quickly pecked Little Nani’s hand.
“Ouch!” exclaimed Little Nani. “That hurt!”
She tried once more to take her magic wand from her pocket, but this time it was Skinny Nikki who pecked Little Nani’s hand.
“Ouch!” exclaimed Little Nani again. It was pretty clear by now to Little Nani that she wasn’t going to have any fun that day. She thought that the rain was boring and, folding her arms with an angry look,  she sat down in a corner.

Review and Giveaway: The Summer of Me & You by Rae Hachton

Thursday, September 19, 2013
“Yeah, but sometimes it's the things that burn the brightest, that burn out first.”


Synopsis:

This is the summer of first love. The summer of magic. The Summer of Me and You.

Kaleb has loved Kayleigh ever since first grade, even if he's never admitted it to anyone. Not even himself. But this summer, that's about to change.

Kaleb's had a troubled past, and Kayleigh's life has always been perfect. He'd love nothing more than to be the guy who ruins it all, and make her fall for him against her mother's wishes.

Kayleigh is a complete nerd. Or at least that's how she feels. She just knows that a guy like Kaleb would never really want to be with a girl like her. So she's going to avoid him at all costs.

But then why do they always end up hanging out together?

When a secret that both their parents kept from them comes out, it will define the true meaning of love.

But when this summer ends, will Kaleb and Kayleigh have to say goodbye, or is this just the beginning of many more summers to come?

My Review:


          I’ve read two more books by Rae Hachton, but the moment I saw the cover and synopsis for The Summer of Me & You I knew that it would be different from Frankie’s Monster or Pretty in Black. Although this novel had a certain amount of darkness it seemed build on a more positive and lighter world.
This is the story of Kayleigh first love and Kaleb true love. They are both so different that if you saw them on the street you would never imagine them together. 

          Kayleigh is that kind of quiet girl that spends her time reading and learning. She is obviously very smart, but not so much when it came to Kaleb. It was obvious to me, to their parent, to everyone around them that Kaleb was madly in love with her, but she couldn’t see it. It’s like she was blind and she always saw herself as average, never standing out like other girls. She couldn’t understand that her being different is what Kaleb loved about her.

          Kaleb on the other hand had a somehow hard life. He fascinates me; he is damaged, broken and really dangerous. And I don’t exactly consider his family dysfunctional because both his mother and stepfather are very nice people and I absolutely loved sweet Alison. There was only Rebekah, his stepsister that kind of ruined his life. Yes, I think that she was part of the bad influences in his life. 

          But even if they are so different I loved their relationship, romantic or not. When they were together they seemed to have so much fun and they would both forget about all the drama in their lives. The dialogue and smart remarks were beyond funny. Even when they tried to be mean to each other I found myself laughing. Yes, there were a couple of times when I thought that they won’t have a happy ending, but I am glad I was wrong.

“Everyone likes sex, Kayleigh—including you. One day,” I added, because I was pretty sure she'd never had sex before. “You can't hide behind those glasses forever. That's why you're afraid of me.”
“Keep my glasses out of this. They have nothing to do with it.” She pointed to her face.
 
**no one messes with the glasses ~O-O~

          Also I liked Gunner. I liked how he acted all goofy and not serious at all, but when the moment came he was like a superhero, all serious and deep. And yes I said superhero because that’s what I thought when he rescued Kayleigh. That was the coolest scene in the book and maybe the one in which Kayleigh saved Kaleb. I guess I am a sucker for rescuing scenes. 

"I couldn't control the impulse. I just lay there as the train inched closer and closer. Kayleigh must've been really tripping balls watching me and how fearless I was. But right before the train plowed into me, her small hands jerked me up and away and we went tumbling backward. She'd seen the side of me I never wanted her to see. I hovered over her, nearly breathless. She trembled, her knees shaking, her heartbeat racing. For a minute, I thought I'd get to see her cry."

          The ending was beautiful, not rushed and I appreciated that they made time to finish school, that they knew what their priorities were.
