Pages: 339

Some boys go too far. Some boys will break your heart. But one boy can make you whole.

When Grace meets Ian she's afraid. Afraid he'll reject her like the rest of the school, like her own family. After she accuses the town golden boy of rape, everyone turns against Grace. They call her a slut and a liar. But...Ian doesn't. He's funny and kind with secrets of his own.

But how do you trust the best friend of the boy who raped you? How do you believe in love?

A gut-wrenching, powerful love story told from alternating points of view by the acclaimed author of Send.






Fictitious Delicious Rating: 3



**I normally write spoiler-free reviews, but this one contains spoilers.  I feel like it has to in order to proper explain why this story didn't work for me in the way I was hoping it would.**

When I pick up a book that contains subject matter like SOME BOYS does, I expect to feel a good amount of anger, frustration and empathy.  But more than anything, really, I hope to see character growth since these kind of stories are so strongly character driven.  So even though there are pieces of SOME BOYS that I enjoyed immensely, the lack of believable growth in these characters made me more angry than I should probably admit.

Grace is raped by a horrible boy named Zac.  His actions and the fallout that poor Grace lives through because of this disgusting act is nicely written by Blount.  The anger I felt for that boy was real and watching Grace be ostracized by even those closest to her felt, sadly, authentic.  Blount is a gifted writer.  

What didn't work for me in this story is the fact that Grace is "saved" by Zac's BFF, Ian.  See, Grace and Ian could have very well been a couple before Grace was raped, but now that Zac has been with her, she's off limits to Ian.  Plus, there's the fact that she's trying to ruin Zac's life by reporting their sexual act as rape. Just like everyone else, Ian doesn't believe that Grace was raped.  He comes close to believing it a couple times, but never really gets there. HOWEVER. He does something important anyway.  He sticks up for Grace during a scene in which Zac confronts Grace and is successful in getting him to back down.  Kudos, Ian!  But I wanted GRACE to be the one to push through and get to Zac.  *shrugs* Maybe that just isn't possible in this case.  I get it.  That being said, my respect for Ian was lost almost immediately when he grovels back to Zac and the "cool kids" for forgiveness in sticking up for Grace.  His wishy-washy-ness drove me (and Grace) to the brink of tears.

In the end, it takes video proof for Ian to believe that Grace was raped. Video proof. Not her side of the story. VIDEO. PROOF.  Then he decides to proclaim his love for her. NO. Just...no. I wanted Grace to throw two strong words that rhyme with "truck flew" at Ian and walk away from him. A boy that loves you doesn't need video proof to believe that you've been violated.  And  NO WAY Grace should have opened her arms to him.  I seriously wanted to throw my e-reader across the room when I finished this story.  I was that upset.

But you know what? As a reader, I don't have to like the way a story goes. If someone picks up this book and finds strength in Grace's story then THAT is what matters. And based on some of the reviews I've read, people have identified with Grace and her story.  That makes me so happy!  I don't consider this a love story. It is Grace's story and she is strong.  By herself.

Read-Along: THE PERFECTIONISTS by Sara Shepard (Week Four)


I am BEYOND honored to be participating in a group read-along of THE PERFECTIONISTS, the newest treasure by Sara Shepard.  Every Tuesday this month I'll be posting my thoughts on a section of the story.  Cool idea, huh? But you know what would be cooler? If you would join me!  Matter of fact, it's not just Fictitious Delicious participating in this read-along. Oh, no, no, no.  I'm joined by the uber fabulous:




See? Uber-fabulousness!  So, grab a copy of THE PERFECTIONISTS and get to reading so you can join in on the fun!  We'll be on Twitter chatting with Sara Shepard on November 6 on the #PerfectRead hashtag (time to be determined) so, seriously.  Pick this book up and join the read-along!


THE BOOK

THE PERFECTIONISTS
by Sara Shepard
Release date: October 7, 2014
Publisher: HarperCollins
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Pages: 336


From the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling series Pretty Little Liars comes a thrilling new novel about five perfect girls who are framed for a murder they didn’t commit.
In Beacon Heights, Washington, five girls—Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie, and Parker—know that you don’t have to be good to be perfect. At first the girls think they have nothing in common, until they realize that they all hate Nolan Hotchkiss, who’s done terrible things to each of them. They come up with the perfect way to kill him—a hypothetical murder, of course. It’s just a joke...until Nolan turns up dead, in exactly the way they planned. Only, they didn’t do it. And unless they find the real killer, their perfect lives will come crashing down around them.

From Sara Shepard, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Pretty Little Liars series, comes another story of dark secrets, shocking twists, and what happens when five beautiful girls will do anything to hide the ugly truth.







MY THOUGHTS

Today we're talking about a section of THE PERFECTIONISTS that includes Chapters 28 - 37.  Check out THIS POST to see week one (Prologue - Chapter 9), THIS POST to see week two (Chapter 10 - 18) and THIS POST to see week three (Chapter 19 - 27)


**Spoiler Alert**  Since this is a read-along, I kinda assume you're, well, reading along.  In case you're not, be warned.  I'm talking spoilers this time around.

Oh. Okay.  That's fine. I didn't have anything else to think about while we wait for THE GOOD GIRLS to come out next summer.  GAH.

Well, I guess my prediction about Granger was incorrect, unless this takes a turn for the paranormal. I was genuinely surprised at the turn events in his story line. Things look pretty bleak for Ava, huh?  Now, I've had my suspicions on Alex, but my gut tells me he's not the one we should be most concerned about, but he was there! Unless it really IS Caitlin, Julie, Ava, Mac and/or Parker. Cripes, I suck at figuring out murder mysteries. Obvs.  Sure is fun to read, though!

Things don't look that great for Caitlin either. Or Mac. Or Parker. Or Julie. And that's what has me so excited for the finale of this story! We'll get resolution in the murder of Nolan Hotchkiss, sure, but we'll also see a resolution in Josh vs. Jeremy (I predict Caitlin will end up with neither of them), the CLAIRE situation (I predict much rivalry between Claire & Mac coming soon), the creepy stalking of Elliot Fielder (I predict an assertive Parker will punch him in the face), the Ashley email (I predict Julie is going to be just fine both with the fallout from the email and a lack of Carson in her life), and Ava. She's in the toughest situation of all with now being the prime suspect and a whole heap of evidence to support that theory.  Just not enough to convince me she's guilty.

Stay tuned to see how these predictions turn out!

I hope you've had as much fun with read-along as I have.  BIG thanks to Harper Teen and Me, My Shelf and I for including our sweet, little blog in such a fun event!  Don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end of this post before you leave.

Book Blast: ALL BROKE DOWN by Cora Carmack



Happy Book Birthday to ALL BROKE DOWN, book two in the Rusk University series! *throws confetti*  I can't wait to pick this one up--it's one of my favorite New Adult series.  Make sure this one is on your radar if it's not already!



THE BOOK





In this second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with All Lined Up, a young woman discovers that you can't only fight for what you believe in... sometimes you have to fight for what you love.

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.

Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians you name it, she's probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He's in for a different kind of fighting. And though he's arrogant and infuriating, she can't help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it's trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He's met girls like her before fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn't think he's broken, and he definitely doesn't need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about: his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.

Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.








THE EXCERPT

I think I get it then. That decision I saw in her eyes back in the kitchen. That’s what this, what I’m about for her, too. I’m just another part of whatever rebellion she started earlier today. About doing what she wants, not what’s expected of her.
“We’re not talking about me, though,” she says. “So you went to meet your friend, and then what happened?”
She keeps her eyes down as she picks up the gauze and begins winding it snugly around the knuckles of one hand, and then the other.
“He said the wrong thing.”
“Which was?”
“Dylan.” Now it’s her that’s pushing too hard. I didn’t want to talk about things with my friends, and I won’t talk about them with her, either, no matter how gorgeous she is.
“I’ll guess. You were mad about what he did, and he wasn’t sorry.”
“This isn’t middle school, Pickle. He didn’t hurt my feelings. He said some shit he had no business saying, and it pissed me off. The end.”
“But you don’t think some of that anger stems from what you feel is a betrayal of your friendship?”
She finishes taping down the last of the gauze, but doesn’t let go of my hand.
“I think you’re analyzing me again. Making things more complicated than they are.”
“And I think you’re just a guy who doesn’t like to admit he has feelings.” She drags out the word, teasing me with some goofy smile on her face. I turn my hand over so I can clutch her wrist. I curlmy other bandaged hand around her waist and pull her closer.
“I feel plenty of things.”
The teasing stops. She swallows.
“I wasn’t talking about that kind of feeling.”
With her standing and me sitting, I’m eye level with her chest. I see the sharp rise and fall as she sucks in a breath. I want her in my lap again, straddling me this time.
“Doesn’t mean we can’t talk about that kind of feeling. Or experiment with it.”
“Is that Stella girl an ex?”
I cough, surprised. My throat twists uncomfortably, and it takes me a couple of solid breaths to get a hold on myself.
“Ah, no. Stella and I have never dated.”
“Have you—”
“Do you ever run out of questions?”
“Not ever.” She turns playful again, and I’m done doing this the careful way. If she wants a rebellion, I’ll be the one to give it to her. I want her against me, and I’m tired of waiting.
I pull her forward, insinuating my knees between hers, and her body naturally follows, settling across my thighs. Her lips part, but she catches herself before she gasps this time. I keep her steady with my hands at her waist and say, “I’ll make you a deal. A question for a kiss.”
Tentatively, she lays her palms against my shoulders. They rest there, her grip light and casual. She ponders my offer for a moment, and it drives me mad that she can do that while our hips are inches away from alignment.
“Okay then. Are you—”
I cut her off. “Not so fast, Dylan Brenner. I’ve already answered one question. We’ve got to settle up first.”
I wrap her braid around my hand like I’ve been waiting to do all night, and I use it to pull her head back just enough that I can crush my mouth against hers.

MY THOUGHTS

Today we're talking about a section of THE PERFECTIONISTS that includes Chapters 19 - 27.  Check out THIS POST to see week one (Prologue - Chapter 9) and THIS POST to see week two (Chapter 10 - 18)


**Spoiler Alert**  Since this is a read-along, I kinda assume you're, well, reading along.  In case you're not, be warned.  I'm talking spoilers this time around.

Oh, snap! Those three crazy people I suspected of being involved in Nolan's murder are acting more and more crazy.  Elliot is as creepy as ever, Granger is leaving threatening notes and Claire has shown her true colors. This whole town is full of people that are unstable enough to murder someone. Which leads me to my biggest takeaway this week.

Anytime I read a mystery, I start suspecting everyone at some point.  I'll go back and reread parts of the book to try to read more into a certain character's behavior and over analyze conversations they've had with other characters.  That happened for me while reading this section.  For instance, what's up with Carson? Surely he must be in this book for a reason--is it as simple as being Julie's dream date? Hmm.  What about Josh? The "perfect" boyfriend has an unreasonable response to his first fight with his girlfriend (who responds to said fight by kissing his brother. Can't wait to see THAT come to light.) And speaking of perfect boyfriends, what about Alex? He hasn't had much page time but he seems too perfect to me.  See? Over analysis is in full check.

I learned this week that there is going to be two books in this story, which makes sense because there aren't very many words left and still a LOT to wrap up.  Guys.  I'm not sure I can wait until the weekend to finish this book.  That last chapter makes me want to keep going, right after I curse Claire for being the snake she is.


Next week we'll be wrapping up with Chapters 28 - 37.  Believe me when I tell you this--you could pick up this book the night before we talk about these last chapters and still be caught up with us. You'll devour this book.

Book Blast: LOOP by Karen Akins



Yeah, yeah, yeah. Don't judge a book by it's cover.  This one made me stop in my tracks, though! I saw it and was immediately drawn to it.  So you can imagine my immense relief when it came attached to a book that sounds as great as its' cover.  I cannot wait to get this one in my hot little hands.



THE BOOK








At a school where Quantum Paradox 101 is a required course and history field trips are literal, sixteen year-old time traveler Bree Bennis excels…at screwing up.

After Bree botches a solo midterm to the 21st century by accidentally taking a boy hostage (a teensy snafu), she stands to lose her scholarship. But when Bree sneaks back to talk the kid into keeping his yap shut, she doesn’t go back far enough. The boy, Finn, now three years older and hot as a solar flare, is convinced he’s in love with Bree, or rather, a future version of her that doesn’t think he’s a complete pain in the arse. To make matters worse, she inadvertently transports him back to the 23rd century with her.

Once home, Bree discovers that a recent rash of accidents at her school are anything but accidental. Someone is attacking time travelers. As Bree and her temporal tagalong uncover seemingly unconnected clues—a broken bracelet, a missing data file, the art heist of the millennium—that lead to the person responsible, she alone has the knowledge to piece the puzzle together. Knowledge only one other person has. Her future self.

But when those closest to her become the next victims, Bree realizes the attacker is willing to do anything to stop her. In the past, present, or future.



"A creative take on romance in a high-stakes, high-concept mystery that trusts its readers' intelligence." - Kirkus

"LOOP is a page-turning adventure with some brilliant and original twists to the time travel genre. I devoured the entire book in one sitting!" - Julie Cross, Author of the TEMPEST series

"Hilarious and suspenseful with a delicious dash of romance, LOOP is a mind-bending good time!" - Melissa Landers, Author of the ALIENATED series

Book Review: STORM SIREN by Mary Weber



STORM SIREN (Storm Siren #1)
by Mary Weber

Release date: August 19, 2014
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Publisher: Thomas Nelson / HarperCollins
Pages: 320
Source: ARC


“I raise my chin as the buyers stare. Yes. Look. You don’t want me. Because, eventually, accidentally, I will destroy you.”

In a world at war, a slave girl’s lethal curse could become one kingdom’s weapon of salvation. If the curse—and the girl—can be controlled.

As a slave in the war-weary kingdom of Faelen, seventeen-year-old Nym isn’t merely devoid of rights, her Elemental kind are only born male and always killed at birth — meaning, she shouldn’t even exist.

Standing on the auction block beneath smoke-drenched mountains, Nym faces her fifteenth sell. But when her hood is removed and her storm-summoning killing curse revealed, Nym is snatched up by a court advisor and given a choice: be trained as the weapon Faelen needs to win the war, or be killed.

Choosing the former, Nym is unleashed into a world of politics, bizarre parties, and rumors of an evil more sinister than she’s being prepared to fight . . . not to mention the handsome trainer whose dark secrets lie behind a mysterious ability to calm every lightning strike she summons.

But what if she doesn’t want to be the weapon they’ve all been waiting for?

Set in a beautifully eclectic world of suspicion, super abilities, and monsters, Storm Siren is a story of power. And whoever controls that power will win.









Fictitious Delicious Rating: 5+


We have a new contender for my favorite book of the year! Surprisingly, it's another fantasy story.  I'm totally in love with this genre this year!

First of all--why didn't anyone tell me that Elementals was A THING?!?!  While I anxiously await for book two in this series, I want to read more Elemental stories, so hook me up, yo.  Now, unto my girl Nym and her seriously messed up world.

I loved Nym from the moment I first met her up on the selling platform on page 1.  I just knew she had a story to tell and that the fight in her was long from gone, despite all that she's been through.  I just knew she was going to become an important part to the future of her kingdom because not only was the fight not gone from her, it was burning to get out.  Once she learns to embrace and control her powers, she blossoms into a force to be reckoned with, in addition to be be feared.  All of which that makes her quite the pawn in a political plot that is more crooked than Lombard Street in San Francisco.  And not just any political plot, mind you. Oh, no.  It's a political plot with supernatural aspects that I ate up faster than my eyeballs could consume it...which is impossible, but you get my point.  

So far, we've got a fantastic heroine, an action packed plot. Hmmm.  What else could I possibly need in a book that is in contention for my favorite book of the year?  If you guessed a swoon-worthy hero--you win all the things.  Guys.  GUYS.  If Eogan were standing right here in front of me, I'd drop down on one knee and ask him to marry me.  He and Nym balance and support each other so well!  We also have a supporting cast of friends that bring a combination of the funniest and most serious parts of this part of Nym's story.  Colin's wit and Breck's sense help Nym understand that there is more to be in this world other than angry.  I love those two, too.

I'd be doing you a terrible injustice if I didn't warn you of the ending.  Haters of cliffhangers: be warned.  This one is a doozy.  I sat and stared at the last page for a good 73 hours after completing it, convinced that more words would magically appear if I just concentrated hard enough.  Alas, the words did not appear, which means I must now organize Operation: Get Siren's Fury this weekend.

Do yourself a favor and pick this one up today.

THE BOOK

MARTYR
by A.R. Kahler
Release date: October 14, 2014
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Pages: 384


Three years have passed since magic destroyed the world.

Those who remain struggle to survive the monsters roaming the streets, fighting back with steel and magic—the very weapons that birthed the Howls in the first place.

Tenn is one such Hunter, a boy with the ability to harness the elements through ancient runes. For years, the Hunters have used this magic to keep the monsters at bay, but it's never been enough to truly win the war. Humans are losing.

When Tenn falls prey to an incubus named Tomás and his terrifying Kin, Tenn learns there's more to this than a fight for survival. He's a pawn in a bigger game, one with devastating consequences. If he doesn't play his part, it could cost him his life, his lover and his world.









ABOUT THE AUTHOR


Alex is many things, but first and foremost, he’s a Sagittarius.

Born in Iowa and educated across the States, he’s taught circus in Amsterdam and Madrid, gotten madly lost in the Scottish wilderness, received his Masters in Creative Writing from Glasgow University, and drummed with Norse shamans. Sometimes he also walks about on stilts. Or sews. Or hammers tiny pieces of metal into pretty shapes.

When he’s not writing or climbing in the rafters, he’s probably drinking coffee. And seeing as he currently resides in Seattle, there’s coffee aplenty.
