Description:

William Shakespeare’s Othello Retold as New Boy Arriving at his fifth school in as many years, diplomat’s son Osei Kokote knows he needs an ally if he is to survive his first day – so he’s lucky to hit it off with Dee, the most popular girl in school. But one student can’t stand to witness this budding relationship: Ian decides to destroy the friendship between the black boy and the golden girl. By the end of the day, the school and its key players – teachers and pupils alike – will never be the same again. The tragedy of Othello is transposed to a 1970s suburban Washington schoolyard, where kids fall in and out of love with each other before lunchtime, and practice a casual racism picked up from their parents and teachers. Peeking over the shoulders of four 11-year-olds – Osei, Dee, Ian, and his reluctant ‘girlfriend’ Mimi – Tracy Chevalier’s powerful drama of friends torn apart by jealousy, bullying and betrayal will leave you reeling.

Blood Forever by Mari Mancusi

Blood Forever by Mari Mancusi

Book Review: 

I finish Blood Forever in two days, I started this just yesterday, once I finish reading Soul Bound.

[Few Spoilers ALERT]!

I enjoyed this book, because of both Sunny, Magnus, Jareth, and Rayne got a do-over and happy ending in the end. Like yes, finally, Pyrus dusky self-got what he deserved like I was hoping for Pyrus to die, like get eating by those Zombies but that wasn’t the chase, he didn’t even die, ugh, he wack evil self only got life in vampire prison lol, like whhhyy? But I did get happy though when Bertha died for the second time; Karma’s a mother chicken huh? Lol but little ol’ Lucifent got killed again for the second time, I was like dang, lol little ol’ child vampire can’t catch a break, especially when the first he got killed by Bertha and in Blood Forever he got killed by Pyrus. I think he would’ve shut and lived he may not have been a harm to the human race, as he says he had human friends but since Pyrus is bipolar, that didn’t happen. Glad Jareth and Rayne got married in the end, and both Rayne and Sunshine parents are alive, including Sunny being alive to and the guys got their memory back, in the end, Yes awesomeness book.

Blood Forever by Mari Mancusi

Description:

Sunny and Rayne McDonald have had their lives turned upside down thanks to the Blood Coven. But when the past itself is changed, the sisters will do anything to get back what they’ve lost…

After making a deal with the devil, Rayne and her twin sister, Sunny, have been given the chance to go back in time—to prevent that fateful night when Sunny was bitten by Magnus from ever happening. But while Sunny has been offered a vampire-free existence, she finds she doesn’t want to live without Magnus by her side. And although Rayne puts up a stoic front, she secretly wishes that the vampire Jareth was back in her arms.

To reclaim their lives, Sunny and Rayne team up to figure out a way to change history for the better. Problem is, Jareth and Magnus aren’t all that eager to help two unfamiliar girls who somehow know everything about their vampiric organization. Now, if the twins can’t get the boys on their side, history may spiral out of control—destroying not only the Blood Coven, but quite possibly the entire human race…

Sunny McDonald and her vampire boyfriend, Magnus, are on the run accused of treason and wanted alive…or undead. And her twin is the slayer sent to track them down.

Book Review: 

I started on Soul Bound back in 2013 or maybe 2014 (November or October) I can’t remember, but It took me awhile to finish this book and today midnight I almost finish it close to 1:00 am lol. I can say this book was good as the other six books once I took the time to get into the book and read it because the first time I read it, I kept getting distracted and couldn’t quite get into it. And man I can’t wait to read part eight (with Sunny and Rayne) point of view, I know it’s going to be good.

[SPOILER ALERT ]

Plus with Sunny getting a do-over to get her soul back, I couldn’t blame Rayne, that’s her twin sister, who wouldn’t miss that opportunity to get their family soul back and have them on EARTH again. I also, like how the author Mari Mancusi added Hades (god of the underworld), his wife Persephone (Goddess of the underworld, the daughter of Zeus) and Hercules (Hero, and the son of Zeus). And how she wrote them in the book, by their looks the way they dress, and how Persephone and Hercules were dating behind Hade’s back lol like whhhhhat? Lol, plus when people die they went to the ‘Underworld” it’s kind of unique, like heaven and hell mixed in one, it was interesting. After seeing all of that, I wonder if “RACE” the rockstar going to change his ways as he says lol. But in the end, I hope they get Sunny from being dead and get Magnus from Pyrus claws; I am also glad that Jareth got to meet and see his family again since he blamed himself for his sister death. But I do wish his brother (wish he got to see his brother again and hopefully, prayerfully, I probably already know, both Sunny, and Rayne will be reunited with their vampire boyfriends Magnus and Jareth.

Book Description:

Evil tree. Bad Apple? Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost–a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world. Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon’s Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress on the far side of the island. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She’ll just need a little help from her “friends.” In their quest for the Dragon’s Eye, these four kids begin to realize that just because you come from an evil family tree, being good ain’t so bad.

18951176_1233836353409266_2184681007051966528_n

This book is actually good. Third Base is one of the books that came in the Fresh Fiction box. I like how I can read books from different authors, and genre. Unlike most people who ONLY read the same author and genre. I’ve read mostly every genre. But not all.

Book Review:

Few spoilers here and there, I own this book and got this book through http://freshfictionbox.com. Worth having to because the storyline is good, and not only that, but I am a baseball fan “I am a Yankees” fan and it’s funny how Ethan hated the Yankees because they kept losing against them hilarious. also, I just love reading sports books. These types of books interest me, make me want a baseball player, but these famous sports players are on this thotism lol.

I definitely enjoyed this book it was really good. And the thing is, in the beginning, once I first started reading this book, I am like Daisy that baseball blogger lol. Who kept being at Ethan and the rest of the players. I am like how Ethan does not know this, and when they went to that run-down house by his mentor and came home he finally found out because she left her phone in the car. I’m like a dang girl, that what you get for rushing into the house, lol but one sad part about the book was when her grandfather died, she had no one. After him, but in the end she had Ethan, he really LOVED her to forgive her for what she did. And lastly, I wanted to know to know more about his mentor Bainbridge and his wife, I am like ooooh I bet she is bagging the Jacob batter or whatever he is the guy and got the nerve to say her husband cheating who knows maybe she started it! Or maybe he started it. I am like let Him have her STEVIE lol I mean Steve. lol, I am going to look at the other two books to see if one of those stories about Steve Bainbridge, but this story was definitely good.

Book Description:

EVERY GAME HAS RULES. HE’S ABOUT TO BREAK THEM . . .
Since becoming a major league baseball player, I’ve learned a few hard lessons. Like never give out your home address on social media (sorry, Mom). Never shoot your mouth off without thinking . . . and never, ever let your personal life interfere with your game. But then I saw her – sitting alone behind the enemy dugout, watching me – and I just had to meet this girl.

Now I know that Daisy Robinson has her secrets, but there’s something about her that drives me crazy. Maybe it’s her innocence, her absolutely amazing knowledge of baseball, or just the fact that she is so unbelievably beautiful. I have to take it slow. Prove to her that the rumors about me are just that – rumors.

Daisy might be my ultimate lifetime win. . . if I don’t get hit by the curveball that’s coming my way.
