Seventeen-year-old Emma was the only one who hadn’t given up on her boyfriend, Lucas. Everyone else—his family, his friends, his doctors—believed that any moment could be his last. So when Lucas miraculously returns from the brink of death, Emma thinks her prayers have been answered.

As the surprised town rejoices, Emma begins to question whether Lucas is the same boy she’s always known. When she finds an unidentifiable object on his family’s farm—and government agents come to claim it—she begins to suspect that nothing is what it seems. Emma’s out-of-this-world discovery may be the key to setting things right, but only if she and Lucas can evade the agents who are after what they have. With all her hopes and dreams on the line, Emma sets out to save the boy she loves. And with a little help from a distant star, she might just have a chance at making those dreams come true.

Thank You Netgalley and Skyscape For My Free Copy.  I Immediately requested this because the cover is so so so damn pretty and then the Blurb was the extra piece. I was hooked from the go and even though i skimmed some pages i enjoyed my read though it's not my favorite.

Emma is so strong and loyal and even when she's afraid she never let the fear hold her back, she never stopped believing in Lucas and her love for him helped with that.
I did read The Host which is kind of similar to this except for the love triangle and Dystopian  setting.
There isn't instant friendship and i love that and Emma didn't immediately believe that scout was from another planet, it was paced well and they worked up to trusting each other and it was amazing,

I Do not Regret Reading this wonderful book and i give it four crowns.

Review: P.S. I Like You

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay Contemporary makes me want to run away but there is a select few books i really liked and this one right here i think might be number one which is crazy okay.

I LOVE THIS BOOK AND THE CHARACTERS. I LOVE THE WHOLE CRAZY FAMILY

I FUCKING LOVE THE LYRICS AND LETTERS AND THE FUNNY BANTER.

I'm obsessed with writing poetry and songs and omg Kasie made Lily Abbot seem like a professional writer. The letter writing made me nostalgic for the old times.

I WANT TO SNUGGLE CADE NEXT TO MY HEART AND NEVER LET HIM GO.

I'M ATTRACTED TO HIM AND HIS WORDS AND VULNERABILITY.

You guys when it was that time in the story for them to do confessions and be cutesy, they damn delivered and i freaked out so hard at how fucking perfect and cute it was.

When Cade recited his letter to lily in the darkened classroom i couldn't handle myself, i was blushing and giggling and just a hot mess. when he said he knew it was her since thanksgiving i fell over…

In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.

Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.

Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s pas…

Review: A Crown of Wishes

A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

YOU BEAUTIFUL BOOK FULL OF MAGIC AND WONDER AND WORDS THAT MAKE YOU DANCE AND FEEL SO LIGHT AND HEAVY.

Disclaimer: Received a copy in exchange for honest opinion *and yeah because i adored the first book*

Words that feel skin deep and soul fulfilling, words that plucks tears from eyes and pull smiles from lips.

I felt so comfortable being pulled back into this world, the Night Bazaar and these characters. My favorite thing about this book was that we got to see Maya again.

Now i see what Maya saw in young Guari, who has grown and lived while dying and full of scars that paint a map of her story.

So THANK YOU to ST.Martins Press for allowing me to read early copy.
