crash into you

October Monthly Wrap-Up

I have had a really productive reading month, which is a major step-up from last month. The books I read consists of these:

9761778 10507293

 Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout (The Covenant #3)–Some characters unrealistically took a turn for the worst in this one. Romance development was good though.

The Selection by Kiera Cass (The Selection #1)–Quite a light Dystopia read, which was interesting to read, as most Dystopia’s are IN.YOUR.FACE.

18333827 if-i-stay

 Reviewed: Stir Me Up by Sabrina Elkins–such a cute romance, I adored it.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman–Very emotional, in a good way! Also becoming a film, I rec it massively!

image pure

Crash into You by Katie McGarry (Pushing the Limits #3)–finally we get to see Isiah’s POV, and it was glorious! Review to come next month.

Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout (The Covenant #2)–I enjoyed this a ton more than the first one, it definitely went down an original route, unlike the previous book which was exactly like Vampire Academy.

TwiceTempted-mm-cover-for-blog1 Where-She-Wentsmaller

 Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost (Night Prince #2)–I wasn’t 100% sure about Vlad in Once Burned, but boy, am I sure about him now. Emotional walls are broken down, and I love him a lot more than I did before. He still frustrates me, but what can you expect from Vlad The Impaler?

Where She Went by Gayle Forman (the sequel to If I Stay)–Although not as hard-hitting as If I Stay, the emotional angst and complex characters were truly amazing.

Overall, October was a really good reading month for me, I’ve mostly scheduled these reviews for November…wait what? I’ve scheduled some posts? Now that’s just cray-cray, I deserve a round of applause.

But anyway, how was October for you? Did you read a lot of awesomesauce books? Hit me with your best recs!

Interview: AJ Salem Discusses Her Upcoming Debut ‘Almost Demon’

I’m very excited to welcome AJ Salem, author of the upcoming title–Almost Demon. Releasing October 31st (how very appropriate), Almost Demon is a Paranormal Young Adult book following protagonist Gemma Pope.

 

almost demonHi AJ! So glad to have you on Hardcore Heroines! Tell us a little bit about your upcoming novel Almost Demon.
Almost Demon is the first novel in The Sigil Cycle series following Gemma Pope, a high school senior struggling to get her life back to normal after a horrible car accident stole the lives of her twin brother and best friends. Everyone blames her for the crash and to make matters worse she starts seeing dark shadows around town unsure whether they are real or an indication that she is slowly losing her mind. Gemma soon learns that there is more at play than her imagination and must find her inner strength to move past her mistakes and save everyone around her.

 

You told me that Almost Demon would appeal to fans of The Morganville Vampires and Vampire Academy. Did you pull inspiration from these books and various other Young Adult Paranormal books?
As a reader, I find that Rachel Caine and Richelle Mead are able to create complex heroines that have a host of problems both supernatural and personal but are able to overcome the obstacles thrown at them. I worked hard at creating a strong character in Gemma who, despite her faults, won’t give up when things get tough. I think that is an important message to get out in a YA novel.

 

I completely agree, strong characters are incredibly important. What was the hardest aspect of writing Almost Demon? (You know, the hair-pulling-I-don’t-want-to-carry-on-I-want-to-break-down-and-cry moment) Or did you not have one?
The hardest part for me is always the first three chapters. The whole set up for the plot starts there and until I get it perfect the ball won’t start rolling.

 

Why is this book different compared to all of the other Young Adult Paranormal books out there? What makes yours stand out?
I think my take on demons and angels is pretty unique. They don’t behave the way you think they would and the line between good and evil isn’t so clear-cut. Also, their world isn’t all fire and brimstone but the decisions made here, in this dimension, can very well lead to hell on Earth.

 

What one song do you think perfectly incorporates the storyline/characters?
Hearing Damage by Thom Yorke

 

What one character of your book would you bring to life if you could?
Gemma, so that I can give her a hug and tell her everything will work out. Maybe not the way she thinks it should but she’ll find what she’s looking for.

 

Aww, that’s really sweet. Sometimes I want to give characters hugs and tell them it’ll work out.
Fun Round:
Cheese or chocolate?
Cheese! The smellier the better.

 

Interesting, I’m a chocolate person myself ;)
Favourite hunk from the Young Adult genre?
Dmitri. *Sigh*

 

Why, yes *fans oneself*
Last book you bought?
The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas and Doctor Sleep by Stephen King

 

Current favourite TV show?
Being Human. Also, I’m terrified of zombies but I torture myself with The Walking Dead because the character development is so good. And I am patiently awaiting more Sherlock and Dr. Who.
I LOVE The Walking Dead! I’m behind because I’m watching it with my brother but I agree that the character development is awesome. Being Human is something my friends rage at me to watch, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. They adore Aidan Turner!

 

 Synopsis of Almost Demon:

The last thing Gemma Pope expects to study in the after-school book club is demon etiquette but that is exactly what she has to do to succeed as a summoner and save her hometown.

Since taking the blame for the car accident that claimed the lives of her twin brother and two of her best friends, she s been seeing things. Dark shadows, opaque, menacing, multiplying.

The clock starts ticking when the local mild-mannered librarian suffers a psychotic break and pulls a gun on her reading circle. People are dying in disasters and wars all over the world. Gemma s dad is getting weird, her classmates are becoming violent, and the darkness surrounding Harrisport is getting thicker.

ajsalemDoes she trust hot English Lit teacher Mr. Flynn or Ian, the mysterious new kid in town, who has knowledge beyond his years and 

access to other dimensions?

It is only when the gates to hell are opened, that Gemma learns who her real friends are.Discover what lies just beyond the veil of humanity in the sleepy town of Harrisport.

When she is not writing, she can be found juggling four small children, crocheting, and watching too much British television. Almost Demon is her first novel.

Cami Broussard has her future all figured out. She'll finish her senior year of high school, then go to work full-time as an apprentice chef in her father's French restaurant, alongside her boyfriend, Luke. But then twenty-year-old ex-Marine Julian Wyatt comes to live with Cami's family while recovering from serious injuries. And suddenly Cami finds herself questioning everything she thought she wanted.

Julian's all attitude, challenges and intense green-brown eyes. But beneath that abrasive exterior is a man who just might be as lost as Cami's starting to feel. And Cami can't stop thinking about him. Talking to him. Wanting to kiss him. He's got her seriously stirred up. Her senior year has just gotten a lot more complicated….

This was such a *sigh* worthy romance. I read it in two sittings and I loved it. Julian, has been given an honourable discharge from the Marines when he was wounded in an IED explosion. He was trying to pull three other people to safety when there was a second explosion, and he was the only one who survived. One of his legs has to amputated, and he sustained many other injuries and obvious emotional scarring. He’s not in a good place and when our main heroine Cami meets him for the first time in his hospital bed, he angrily shouts at her to leave the room. Except, Julian is Cami’s stepmother’s nephew and soon Julian moves out of hospital and into Cami’s room, and consequently, they are forced to see each other every day.

Poor Cami was put out by not having her own private space, but Julian desperately needs the care Cami’s stepmother, Estella, is willing to give. Cami is attending her last year of school and works at her French father’s restaurant–Etoile. She loves cooking mostly French food, and bakes some muffins for Julian in goodwill–he throws it at her head. Commence the angry insults that are thrown at each other. I enjoyed Cami’s love for cooking food, it added to the storyline, and gave her more depth. She was an enjoyable character to read about, because she was so relatable. She goes to school, she has a best friend, she studies, she flirts with a hot Marine…wait, what? Where’s my hot Marine? *Ahem*, anyway, she had a feistiness and friendliness that made me want to be there baking muffins and laughing with her.

Stir Me Up explores the after-math of war in individuals, and the effects of loss. Julian and Cami warm to each other in a slow-burning way, that is believable and sweet. This book is wholly satisfying for Romance-lovers, and prefect for those cold days to snuggle under the covers and get caught up in a highly amusing and adorable romance.

Julian is one sexy marine *swoon*, and Elkins made the connection between him and Cami feel tangible. Cami has no idea what she wants to do other than that she wants to be a chef, and Julian and her share that uncertainty towards their future. I had such a good time reading this, I urge you to read it.

Decades after being banished from Heaven for saving a life he shouldn’t have, Lash is given a chance to redeem himself. His mission: protect Naomi Duran, a young woman who has lost her faith. The assignment proves to be anything but simple when his superiors, the Archangels, withhold key information about Naomi and refuse to restore Lash’s powers. When an unexpected source reveals centuries-old secrets, his trust is shaken to the core, and he begins to doubt those whom he had once considered to be his greatest allies.

Determined to avoid anything that would risk his chances of returning to Heaven, Lash struggles with the greatest obstacle of all—his growing feelings for Naomi. But when her life is threatened by an unknown source, Lash questions the wisdom of the Archangels and his ability to keep her safe. 

Soon, Lash will have to choose where to place his faith—in the home he has fought so hard to regain or in the forbidden love he can’t bear to lose.

Lash has a feel of New Adult/ Paranormal and was such a lovely read. It had the premise of Guardian Angels, and forbidden love. Who doesn’t enjoy the trope of forbidden love?

I had not read any New Adult before this–but I kept telling myself to–but because I like Romance and Paranormal, this was really a fantastic combination. It didn’t take me very long to finish and was a light read–which considering that I’ve been in a reading funk for a couple of weeks now was a warm welcome.

Lash was a bit of fun, and humour is present throughout the novel, which blended into what was mostly a rather serious storyline. It’s always good when an author can add humour without completely altering the tone, because I don’t enjoy 100% serious books, I need humour!

The only thing that really let this novel down was that I never fell in love with the characters, and I don’t even know why. Well okay, I did fall for Lash a little bit–but who wouldn’t? There was great internal and external conflict, Castillo has clearly tried to give layers to the characters and Lash had an intriguing mystery past. But still, they weren’t the kind of characters that made you snort with laughter and want to eat ice cream with them in the wee hours of the morning.

Even though I didn’t fall in love with Naomi’s character, I still liked her. Anyone who has dealt with loss and grieving can relate to Naomi’s character. She lost her mother to cancer, then other events happen that add to the loss. I felt like some things were unexpected and unrealistic, though. I don’t want to give out spoilers, but she gets a little depressed at one point, and what happened next seemed like it was just written in to make the story more interesting/easier for the storyline. Not actually because it fit with Naomi’s character.

Either way, Lash was an enjoyable read, and although it wasn’t jaw-dropping or heart-stopping, Lash and Naomi were fun characters, and the Guardian Angels storyline was really intriguing. This novel was at times cheesy and I felt melodramatic, but still a great read.

The Shadow Fold, a swathe of impenetrable darkness, crawling with monsters that feast on human flesh, is slowly destroying the once-great nation of Ravka.

Alina, a pale, lonely orphan, discovers a unique power that thrusts her into the lavish world of the kingdom’s magical elite—the Grisha. Could she be the key to unravelling the dark fabric of the Shadow Fold and setting Ravka free?

The Darkling, a creature of seductive charm and terrifying power, leader of the Grisha. If Alina is to fulfill her destiny, she must discover how to unlock her gift and face up to her dangerous attraction to him.

But what of Mal, Alina’s childhood best friend? As Alina contemplates her dazzling new future, why can’t she ever quite forget him?

Glorious. Epic. Irresistible. Romance.

Alina is just a mapmaker, nothing special. Until one day her power is revealed and she discovers that she has the power to bring light and save lives. Alina is not just a mapmaker any more, she is Grisha. Soon, Alina is sleeping in a soft bed and eating delicious meals. Everyday she is training hard physically and mastering her powers to fight The Shadow Fold, because she is everyone’s only hope.

I’ve heard a lot about this series, and I wasn’t sure whether I was ever going to pick it up. I was reading Stephanie from Stepping out of  the Page’s review of this book and she was saying how words like ‘The Shadow Fold’, ‘Ravka’ and ‘Grisha’ intimidate her, and I 100% agree. What with that and the cover, I thought this book was going to be a major Fantasy book–and not one that I’d like. God know’s why, because the only reviews I see of this book are positive.

Shadow and Bone captured my attention like Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, with similar Fantasy/Historical elements. I’m not sure how I feel about Fantasy, I used to think I didn’t like it but Maas’ and Bardugo’s writing have roped me in and I’m beginning to love the genre.

There are quite a few plot threads, all linking and some that I know are unresolved and are going to hit me in the next book when I least expect it. This world was magical and I adore the premise. Although, I am quite bored of there being a ‘better species’, you know, the one everyone is protecting, with the other species working as slaves. I am so sick to death of that trope. Is there ever a book where both species live in peace or are at least equal? Apparently not.

Still, I liked Alina’s character and I adored her relationship with Mal. They are childhood friends that grew up together, Alina harbours a secret love for Mal ever since they were teenagers. But of course Mal is desirable and not in want of attention from women.

There were many things I could’ve hated about Shadow and Bone, because despite it’s amazing originality, it has a hundred or so cliche’s. For example:

  • Unrequited love for Alina’s childhood best friend
  • An (albeit questionable) love triangle
  • The MC’s life changes over-night
  • Alina is fated to save everyone with her recently discovered power of ‘sunshine’ *snorts* (No really, this was a good plot line, despite how it sounds)

I could go on. But, please don’t let this silly list put you off, because it’s a fantastic book and if you haven’t read it, I dare say it’s a must-read. The Fantasy is really extensive and I loved the world, it was one of the very different elements in the book. It was beautiful and Bardego gave me a clear imagery of every amazing thing in it.

Rating: 5 Stars– I really loved this one, when I least expected it. If you haven’t read it, I urge you to, even if Fantasy is not your thing! You’d be surprised.

WORLDS KEPT THEM APART.

DESTINY BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER.

Aria has lived her whole life in the protected dome of Reverie. Her entire world confined to its spaces, she's never thought to dream of what lies beyond its doors. So when her mother goes missing, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland long enough to find her are slim.

Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He's searching for someone too. He's also wild - a savage - but might be her best hope at staying alive.

If they can survive, they are each other's best hope for finding answers.

Under the Never Sky took a while to draw me in, the entire premise was quite complicated and not very well explained. It jumped right in with bewildering lingo like ‘Realms’  which left me confused. Some of the world intricacies were never explained and I have no idea how the Earth got into this weird Sci-Fi situation or if it’s a different dimension entirely. However, despite this initial bump, at about page 130, Under the Never Sky got good.  Really good.

I loved the idea of having ‘Realms’. They are virtual worlds that humans live in and you can change to different Realms with a single thought. For example, you can go to a Forest Realm for lunch and then a Beach Realm in the blink of an eye. Everything is virtual, so the experience is not quite the same as real life, but the people who live there try and make everything appear, feel and taste as life-like as possible. Our main protagonist, Aria, is from the Realms and soon finds that the Realms have done no justice to real life. It was amusing to read about her reactions to things very common to us, like fires, which mystified her. Also, she kept collecting rocks, because they’re unique shapes and sizes on earth, whereas in the Realms they are formulated and often boring and the same.

Meanwhile on Earth, humans live in Tribes, with a leader called a Blood Lord. Humans have been set back a hundred or so years. They are living in stone huts and finding it hard to survive with enough food through the winter. Peregrine is our main hero, and when his nephew goes missing, Peregrine sets off to save him. Then Aria gets thrown out of the Realms, and her and Peregrine strike a deal to help each other.

Under the Never Sky is told in dual points of view, following both Perry and Aria, it was enjoyable to read about both of their lives and the contrast of how they live and their thoughts about each other. To begin with, they share an animosity towards each other because Aria thinks Perry’s a savage, and Perry thinks Aria’s a spoilt brat. Both of those opinions hold some truth. But of course their relationship continues to develop and drama ensues.

It’s a mix or science fiction and Dystopia, which was interesting to read. I really enjoyed this book, although I don’t think it was initially explained in the best way, I was still very taken by the writing and the unique premise. I highly recommend this series, and urge you to get past the fairly boring and slightly confusing first 100 pages, because the next 250 are a real gem.

Rating: 3.5 Stars, but only because of the beginning, otherwise I seriously loved it and I will definitely be carrying on with the series.
