Review: Everbound (Everneath #2) by Brodi Ashton

Title: Everbound
Author: Brodi Ashton
Series: Everneath
Book #: 2
Pages: 368
Reading Level: YA
Book Rating: Photobucket.5
Goodreads Rating: 4.38
Published: Jan. 22nd, 2013

Nikki Beckett could only watch as her boyfriend, Jack, sacrificed himself to save her, taking her place in the Tunnels of the Everneath for eternity — a debt that should’ve been hers. She’s living a borrowed life, and she doesn’t know what to do with the guilt. And every night Jack appears in her dreams, lost and confused and wasting away.

Desperate for answers, Nikki turns to Cole, the immortal bad boy who wants to make her his queen — and the one person least likely to help. But his heart has been touched by everything about Nikki, and he agrees to assist her in the only way he can: by taking her to the Everneath himself.

Nikki and Cole descend into the Everneath, only to discover that their journey will be more difficult than they’d anticipated — and more deadly. But Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack — even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own.

In this enthralling sequel to Everneath, Brodi Ashton tests the bonds of destiny and explores the lengths we’ll go to for the ones we love.

Taschima's POV:

I speculated a lot when it came to Everbound. What will Nikki do? How will she do it? Will Jack survive? Will Cole remain a romantic interest after all he did?! Will he help Nikki get Jack back? Let's just say Everneath was one of my top 2012 reads. So Everbound definitely delivered, just not quite as much as Everneath? It was good, believe me, I just liked Everneath a bit better because of well, Jack quite frankly. You get some Jack here but just in memories. He is still as cute as a button in memories, just not as romantically frustrated as he was in Everneath.

Things I loved about Everbound:

  • The romantic angst. Oh sue me, sometimes, in some books, is entertaining and warranted. If Nikki were to be all happy and not sort of depressed for the story I would have screamed BULLSHIT! But she had a good happy medium of sad and determined that I admired. She didn't curl into fetus position once Jack was so rudely taken away from her (*cough* Bella Swan *cough*) but instead she constructed a thick wall around her heart, allowed herself to grieve while at the same time looking for a solution. You go girl!

  • - Cole. Gosh darn all Coles of this world. They are all inexplicably attractive.


    (Cole from Charmed)

    Yum... Anyways. I don't picture the Cole of Everneath as this Cole but you get my point. Hotness runs in the name.

    In Everbound we get to see another side of Cole. He is vulnerable, sweet, and willing to help Nikki go into the Everneath to save her boyfriend, even if it is at the cost of his own happiness. Or, is it? Gosh darn it I love what Brodi Ashton did with Cole, specially when it comes to the ending of the story. It was just, right. I have to admit, he got to me. Specially in that scene with the Siren... You have to read it for yourself. It's good.
  • The Everneath is... weird. I could sort of picture it in a grand scale. Endless. I liked the barriers Ashton constructed in the Everneath, made out of water, wind, and fire. I could picture it and it looked pretty cool. My only complaint is the way they went through the barriers... may be a bit too easy? Specially the "wind" part. I mean, it was supposed to screw with your head, but they didn't seem that screwed with. I was expecting a bit more of a challenge.
  • The flashbacks to how Nikki and Jack's relationship developed. Oh bless his heart! Although it kind of annoyed me how the memories were more scrambled and not a linear tale. I would have liked a more linear tale when it came to the flashbacks. But since we are sans Jack in this book I really appreciated the flashbacks.
  • THE ENDING. Hell, yes! Just when you think you might be getting a happy ending... Well, you don't. Not really. I loved how it makes you re-evaluate everything you have read since the very first page. Oh Cole... you are a bastard. Just saying! A lovely bastard!
Things I didn't quite care for:
  • The Everneath! It's just... It's so bright and sunshiny. I was picturing something more deadly a la "My Soul to Save". To me it seemed more like what a faerie kingdom would look like really. Which is why I always forget this is more loosely based on Greek Myths. To me it seems a blend of both the Faerie and Greek myth.
  • I had a few questions when it came to things that happened to characters that banished in one page and return way later with no explanation. I also had questions when it came to Jack, and the surprising ending. But maybe these will be answered in the next installment so... waiting on that.
  •  I needed more Jack. There, I said it. Even though Cole was a nice distraction Jack is still one of a kind. Bring him back dammit!
Okay, now to speculate about the next installment... Can't wait!

From Book to T.V.: Bloody Hell! Delirium, by Lauren Oliver, is to become a TV Show!

Delirium (Delirium, #1) Pandemonium (Delirium, #2) Requiem (Delirium, #3)

As many of you know the Delirium series' movie rights were bought by Fox 2000 a few years ago, 2011, and absolutely nothing has happened since. It seems as if all the big movie houses were jumping the gun and buying rights to all the major Young Adult books (Divergent, The Hunger Games, Warm Bodies, among many others). Which is cool in one hand (woohoo we get to see our favorite books on film!) and so bad on the other (we get to see our favorite books on film). Most of the YA novels though are being turned into movies, and so I expected a similar fate for Delirium.

Well guys, Delirium is being turned into a TV Series!
"As announced by TV Line on Tuesday, Prison Break's Karyn Usher scripted and will produce the Fox-ordered drama show."
This is both exciting and frightening.

Lauren Oliver is excited and over the moon over the news, she thinks a TV Show is actually the perfect medium for her series as it will allowsfor the many subplots of the novel to shine.
The deal is that Fox, which initially optioned the books for film, decided that due to the complexity of all the side plots and characters, the Delirium series might be better suited for TV, as we’d have a chance to explore all of those elements. I am super psyched because that has always been my preference (for those of you that have read some of my interviews, you know that I LOVE anything that can be done while in pajamas, such as writing and watching television!) We’ve been assembling all the moving parts to make that happen over the past few months.

Am I excited right along with Lauren? Maybe... Yes, I am. Or at least I am trying to be. I always saw Delirium as a movie deal because the plot seems really straight forward. Unlike True Blood (The Sookie Stackhouse series) where in each book a different story is portrayed and it has a lot of room to grow. Delirium to me seems more movie material because of the fact that all three books have one main story plot, even if sub plots are present because of the many novellas that have come out (AnnabelHana, Raven).
I know that some of you are concerned that a TV show will be “untrue” to the books, due to the need to add content in order to flesh out the story to a full season. Never fear! Look, the books will always be the books. No adaptation, either for film or TV, will or can completely replicate and remain faithful to them—it’s a totally different art form! I like to think of this as a new riff, a new interpretation of the story I’ve written. TV, more so than novel writing, is a collaborative art form (although there is plenty of collaboration between me and my editor!).

Well, how can it not be? Characters and different plots are bound to be added. Things are bound to be changed to expand the audience market, not to mention in order to make the books last for at least 12 hours a book. On the other hand we could get to see some interesting, different, points of view when it comes to the war...We will see. I mean, they manage to make Vampire Diaries work, but then again the books were never as good as the Delirium books are.

I am on the fence. But I am still super happy for Lauren Oliver, and am hoping for the best.

Unravel Me, by Tahereh Mafi, Chapters 1 and 2 (Maybe 3?) are online!

Shatter Me was by far one of my favorite reads last year, no freaking joke. So you can only imagine how pumped I am for the release of Unravel Me, the sequel by talented Tahereh Mafi! I may throw a party, and you are all invited (if you can get to FL we will party like it's 1999!).

Seriously though, Shatter Me was pretty good, so here goes to all who have read it and are desperate for more:

Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2)

A little preview:
I do not function properly.
I am nothing more than the consequence of catastrophe.
2 weeks have collapsed at the side of the road, abandoned, already forgotten. 2 weeks I’ve been here and in 2 weeks I’ve taken up residence on a bed of eggshells, wondering when something is going to break, when I’ll be the first to break it, wondering when everything is going to fall apart. In 2 weeks I should’ve been happier, healthier, sleeping better, more soundly in this safe space. Instead I worry about what will happen when if I can’t get this right, if I don’t figure out how to train properly, if I hurt someone on purpose by accident.
We’re preparing for a bloody war.

Divergent Movie News: Beatrice Prior, or Tris, has been cast, and the winner is Shailene Woodley.

Okay, so I am going to really try to be in camp neutral about this casting choice. Know why? Because when they cast Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss I had a bit of a problem, and she managed to surprise us all. Blew us away. She is now one of my favorite actresses.


Shailene Woodley... To be honest I think I am kind of indifferent to the casting choice. She is the main lead in a popular series called The Secret Life of the American Teenager, which doesn't help her case when it comes to me. She has also been cast as Mary Jane in Spiderman 2, so you have to give it to the girl. She has 2 big ticket items to be filmed. Poor girl is going against Emma Stone, and Emma is, well, Emma! Amazing actress... Oh wait I was talking about Shailene, right. Anyways here is a picture of our main lead in Divergent:

Shailene Woodley 
Tris has a narrow face, grayish-blue eyes that are wide and round, and a long, thin nose. When she looks at herself, she sees someone who isn't pretty and that looks like a little girl with eyes and a nose that are too big. She has curly blonde hair that frames her face, a long neck, and knobby-knuckled hands. Christina tells her that she has striking features; even though they are not beautiful, they are interesting. Three flying birds are tattooed on her collarbone.                                                      
She is short, only reaching Four's shoulder. Tris says that her body is like a twelve-year-old's, and if she was taller, could be described as willowy, not childish. In Insurgent, Tris cuts her hair so that it reaches her jawline.

She is definitely pretty, sort of short? 5'6"? Does she have the acting skills to back it up? We'll see! Convince me girl, convince me.

I sincerely wish you luck Shailene, because we around these parts LOVE Tris. She is a great character, strong and brave. So, big shoes to fill.

This is Shailene's comments on accepting her role:
In an interview with MTV while at Sundance in Park City, Utah today, Woodley reveals she was initially uninterested in joining a big franchise. “I didn’t [read the book prior to auditioning]. I read the book – I thought it was really… my whole thing, to be honest, was that I never wanted to do big films. Especially one that was similar to Hunger Games or Twilight. Something with a huge fan base that would carry on for multiple years.”
Woah! Uninterested in a big franchise? Seriously? Then why did you take the job?
So why did she want to join it if she was so resistant to what Lionsgate is specifically telling investors will be the next Hunger Games or Twilight? “After reading the book I was really profoundly moved. [The book is] very metaphorical for things that are going on today. Specifically things that I’m passionate about, and things I want to make public, and things I want to educate people on. So I think it’s a really great platform.”
-Source, there's also a video of her interview here.

... and then she went on to say something about mind control and putting chips in babies and dogs. Oookay Shailene, I am sorry but this answer is either really weird or you just didn't have enough time to come up with something good on the spot. What exactly are you teaching people about anyways? The one teaching anything anyways would be the author... Weird but whatever, let's cast Four already!!

Review + Giveaway: Prodigy (Legend #2) by Marie Lu.

Prodigy by Marie Lu

Title: Prodigy
Author: Marie Lu
Series: Legend
Book #: 2
Pages: 384
Reading Level: YA
Book Rating: Photobucket
Goodreads Rating: 4.43
T.B.Published: Jan. 29th, 2013

June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.

It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.

But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengeance, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?

In this highly-anticipated sequel, Lu delivers a breathtaking thriller with high stakes and cinematic action.

Taschima's POV:

Let's just put it like this. If you read Legend and liked/loved it, you are going to love Prodigy, and if you read Legend and sort of thought it was okay then let me tell you YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE PRODIGY. There is just no way around it, this book is so hard not to love. Its even hard to find a fault in it, because to tell you the truth I think it has none. Everything, from the deliciously flawed characters to the magnificently crafted story line, is amazing. I do not regret one second spent in this book. Prodigy kicks major ass.

The moment you think you have everything figured out is the moment you are dead wrong. I thought Prodigy was going to follow this linear plot where the bad guy was widely recognised and he needed to be defeated. Kind of like The Hunger Games in a way. President Snow was powerful and evil, and he really needed to be taken down. But while Prodigy may have started out that way it's linear plot quickly dissipates and you are left with a twist. You start off fighting against the Republic, but much to quick, like June, you begin to question if you should be fighting against the new Elector or supporting him. Prodigy is sure to test the reader's loyalties as much as the characters. Because while June may be changing her mind when it comes to defeating the new elector, Day is nothing if not dead serious about taking the Republic down.

Which is where our romance begins to take hard blows. One of the biggest themes in Prodigy is trust, specially where to place it. Because trusting one movement versus the other can break down nations, as well as relationships. June and Day had a rocky start in Legend, and Prodigy is no different. You can see how much these characters want to trust each other, and how much they depend on one another not only as lovers but as partners. They are each other's crutches in this world full of uncertainty. But realistically they have known each other only for so long, and they have already hurt each other in some ways even if it was involuntary. The way they work their way to each other was definitely a high point in the story and without this inner doubt the story wouldn't have been half as believable and touching.

Every story depends on it's characters. Day and June, they've grown up so much. If they started out as rebellious teenagers they ended up as strong new adults, willing to do anything and take high leaps in faith for not only each other but also for their country. June, in this book she was my favorite. If Legend was more about Day I feel like Prodigy is more about June. It's totally about both of them, both have to overcome huge tests in their lives, but June for me grew up the most. Day as well by the end of the novel.

There's other characters like Anden and Tess who definitely make a come back. I loved who I wasn't supposed to love and hated characters that I previously thought of as endearing. Here is one of my updates while reading Prodigy:
"ITS A FOURSOME!!!! A Four way love affair!! OMGUI@*RY@)(R%*#)~! Not the main reason I am enjoying the book but it certainly makes things interesting (specially since Anden is such a freaking cutie that I think I may be falling for him). But there's a conspiracy here that is making me go all O)*@UHJFUHSN, EXCITING!!"
Just... keep an open mind. Tess is a bit of a bitch this time around though lol At least she seemed like that to me.

Finally, the ending. Oh holy baby raptor Jesus. It was HEART BREAKING. I was left in a puddle of my own tears, wondering if and how things will turn around on Book 3. I am not even sure they can, or if I want them to. It seems like book 3 is going to be very interesting... in 2014. COME ON!! Write a little faster Miss Lu!

 photo Thisistoomuch_zps107b1c80.gif
This is how the ending left me... Too much feelings!
All I know is that Legend #3 is BOUND to kick some major ass. I wonder if we are going to go some years into the future, that would be cool. Or if we are just going to pick up weeks, or months after. I hope for the former. I wonder what is going to happen to the Republic, to Anden, to Day, and to June. But most of all I really hope Tess never comes back into the picture. Her mood swings annoyed me lol

So I started reading Everbound (Everneath #2) by Brodi Ashton

Everbound (Everneath, #2)
Expected Publication Date: Jan. 22nd, 2013
"He's dying anyways. I have to go to the Everneath. Nothing will stop me."                                                                                                     He ran a hand through his hair, making it stick out in a couple of places. "Well then, Nik, you aren't factoring in one very important thing."                                                                                                What's that?                                                                                 That I'm not going with you."
 A memory instantly popped into my mind, and my face must've shown it, because Cole pressed. "It won't make a difference if it'a an unpleasant memory. It's all part of your connection to him."                                                                                                                      "Well, there was one time..."                                                                                                                                                                         Suddenly Max was by my side. "Jack as the antihero? Dude, I'll bring the popcorn."
"He is watching  me expectantly.                                                                                                                                                                 "I'm coming for you. Do you know this?" I say.                                                                                                                                             Jack doesn't answer. He is watching my face, searching.                                                                                                                            "What is it, Jack?" I say. "Are you in pain?"                                                                                                                                               His anguish is plain on his face. "I ... I can't remember your name. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry."                                                                                                                                                                                    He closes his eyes and shakes his head.
And that is just SOME of the awesome quotes from this book. Everbound is turning out to be  everything I was hoping for, and so much more. Every time I start reading it time flies by and suddenly I am on page 200!  So I am trying to pace myself.

Cole... He is getting a lot of face time in this book. And he is really trying. Though I am still firmly a Jack fan. We don't get to interact with present Jack much, only trhough dreams, but we get to see old memories involving Jack and how he and Nik were before they fell in love. We get to see how and why they fell in love, and it's beautiful. Jack is such a sweet guy, and Nik is such a broken girl. With a spine made out of steel!

Anyways, gotta go, the book is calling my name!!

'Till the World Ends: Dawn of Eden 0.5, Thistle & Thorne, and Sun Storms, by Julie Kagawa, Ann Aguirre, and Karen Duvall.

Title: 'Till the World Ends
Author: Julie Kagawa
Series: n/a
Book #: 1
Pages: 368
Reading Level: YA*
Book Rating: Photobucket*
Goodreads Rating: 4.05
T.B.Published: Jan. 29th, 2013
*With some adult content
*Stories have different ratings

Dawn of Eden by Julie Kagawa

Before The Immortal Rules, there was the Red Lung, a relentless virus determined to take out all in its path. For Kylie, the miracle of her survival is also her burden—as a doctor at one of the clinics for the infected, she is forced to witness endless suffering. What’s worse, strange things are happening to the remains of the dead, and by the time she befriends Ben Archer, she’s beginning to wonder if a global pandemic is the least of her problems...

Thistle & Thorne by Ann Aguirre

After a catastrophic spill turns the country into a vast chemical wasteland, those who could afford it retreated to fortresses, self-contained communities run by powerful corporations. But for Mari Thistle, life on the outside—in the Red Zone—is a constant struggle. To protect her family, Mari teams up with the mysterious Thorne Goodman. Together, they’ll face an evil plot in both the underworld of the Red Zone and the society inside the fortresses that could destroy those on the outside... for good.

Sun Storm by Karen Duvall

Sarah Daggot has been chasing storms since she was a child. But after the biggest solar flares in history nearly destroy the planet, she becomes a Kinetic, endowed by her exposure to extreme radiation with the power to sense coming storms—in the cosmos and beyond. And she’s not the only one. Sarah believes the Kinetics are destined to join forces and halt the final onslaught of the sun. She’ll vow to keep trying to convince the one missing link in their chain of defense, the enigmatic Ian Matthews, up until the world ends.

Taschima's POV:

I never read anthologies, or short stories for that matter. Unless they have something to do with a bigger series. That's why I couldn't wait for 'Til The World Ends to come out, because it had a short prequel story on The Immortal Rules. Dawn of Eden might have been what pulled me in but the rest of the stories made me stick around. If I were to review each story in a paragraph or less this is what it would look like:

Dawn of Eden by Julie Kagawa 4/5

Was just right. It is simply a brilliant move by the author, and completely not what I was expecting. In it Julie Kagawa introduces us to a whole new facet of The Immortal Rules world, and I am not just talking about the world before the vampires took over. In it we get to see the story through an adult's eyes. The Immortal Rules is a strictly YA series, with some adults in it sure but the main character is a young recently turned vampire. So the change in MC was able to both change our perspective and build upon was already there by inserting a completely new voice into this infected world. If I were to give a rating to Dawn of Eden I'd give it a 4/5. It was interesting, and entertaining, but with the new spin come some downfalls. Because though I do encourage, and applaud, the change in MC I think some people may not take a liking to the new girl. At least to me the new female character wasn't as engaging as Allison is. On the other hand the ending left me unsatisfied. I have no idea what happens to the characters, and though the ending promises good things I can only expect the bad. There are uncontrollable vampires around, not to mention rabids!! For the setting of this novel expect something like The Walking Dead (first season), only the zombies are rabids and they are faster and stronger, hence deadlier. So the Walking Dead meets 28 Days Later.


Beware: Some sexy scenes, as in actual sex, lurk between these pages so I advise you to proceed with caution when it comes to Blood of Eden. These two adults definitely get it on.

Thistle & Thorne by Ann Aguirre 5/5

If I had to describe this story in one word I would have to go with: Fan-fucking-tastic! It was by far my favorite one of the entire book!


Here I was about to call it a day after I finished Dawn of Eden when I said to myself: "Self, you should probably give the other two stories a shot". I am very glad I give such advice because I am forever a fan of Ann Aguirre now. Actually, after reading her story I went on Goodreads, looked for everything else she has written and promptly friend requested her (still waiting on a response but here's to hoping). I am really, really hoping Thirstle & Thorne has a sequel, because their story is too good to pass on. The world built is one were the gap between the rich and the poor is so big they might as well live in two different worlds. The rich live inside this wall enclosed bubble were they don't have to worry about basic things like food, shelter, or medicine, while on the other side of the fence everybody is fucked. They have to resolve to steal from each other to continue living, and their shit hole is ran by a crazed crime lord. Mari, our main girl, is from the bad part of town. She, as well as her family before her, is an expert thief. This is what gets her in trouble in the end, she fails to steal something and that gets the ball rolling. You might think this story might potentially have some romance involved in it, but it doesn't. Everything between Mari and Thorne is exclusively business. That is, for now I think. Thorne is not your average guy. He is a thug, he is a criminal of sorts (not to say he is all bad but he makes sure you don't grow fantasies about his character), and he wants to dethrone the crazy lord. For that to happen though he is going to need Mari's help, and what comes after that is a whole lot of trouble and a world of fun.

I know I said I would review it in one paragraph but this story is so good it needs a little more so bear with me. The reason the world is so fucked in this story is due to chemical spills and things like that. Which is credible, but there is a lot of back story that is missing. Again, understandable because this is but a short story and it doesn't have enough pages to give us a history lesson. What it does do is entertain the hell out of you and keep you at the edge of your seat, sort of like Dawn of Eden does. It is smart, it is good, and I cannot wait for something to come out of it.

Sun Storm by Karen Duvall 2/5

This was by far my least favorite story. It was just hard to get through, and even harder to swallow. The world has been screwed by the sun; it hit us with it's fiery whip and we were doomed. Ever since these "sun storms" happen every often and if they manage to touch you then you are screwed because you die a horrible painful death. That is unless you are magically elected to have super awesome powers... oooookay. I had problems with the main character (annoying), the circumstances of the dystopian world, the pace, the problems faced, the romance, the fantastical ending... Let's just say this one wasn't for me. The romance was rushed and suffers from, dare I say it, insta love.


UGH, they were JUST meant for each other. And I get it that in a dystopian world you might want to speed the process along, but really, why are these two together? I think it's just because of their kynetic powers but that's just me. I have the hots for you, literally, you have the hots for me, want to fall in love in like a day and save the world?! Aaam, no thanks lady and get the hell away from me?


Overall it was a 2/3 and I would gladly recommend it not only because of Julie Kagawa's great story but the other ones had a lot to offer as well (at least T&T did, and ST might for you).

But seriously, very proud of J.R.Ward for not backing down and telling their story, even if it will ruffle some feathers Blay and Quinn deserve a HEA. Or something similar to that lol J. R. Ward always throws us a curve ball or two.

I Should Have Read That... 2013 Edition {Self Challenge}; and my inability to read everything I want.

So last year I read a heck of a lot of books, most good, some bad, some really bad, and some were absolutely divine. But, there were those books that fell through the bookshelf cracks, books I really wanted to read but just couldn't find the time for. These are some those books:










And these are just SOME of the titles! I have many, many more! So I am challenging myself to read at least 20 of these 2012 titles before the year is up. Sounds easy, no? Well with college and work constantly reminding me I have responsibilities it will be a bit of a hassle, but I am sure I can do it! What about you? Which books fell through the cracks?

Here I've provided a way for you guys to join me in this self challenge if you want. Should be lots of fun! Make the best speed reader win ^.^
