Blue Mondays (31): From what I remember… by Stacie Kramer and Valerie Thomas

Blue Mondays

Monday mornings are the toughest mornings. Knowing the weekend is over and you’ll have to go to school or work again… But here is my solution: Blue Mondays!  Every other Monday I will pick an awesome book, which I hope will make the week almost bearable for you. Cause reading it will make you forget about everything else! And before you know it, weekend has started once again ^^

From What I Remember....

KYLIE: Mexico? What a nightmare! I should be putting the finishing touches on my valedictorian speech. Graduation is TODAY! Wait! Is this a wedding band on my finger??

MAX: It started with Kylie’s laptop and a truck full of stolen electronics and it ended in Ensenada. It was hot, the way she broke us out like some chick in an action movie. But now we’re stranded here, with less than twenty-four hours before graduation.

WILL: Saving Kylie Flores from herself is kind of a full-time occupation. Luckily, I, Will Bixby, was born for the job. And when I found out she was stuck in Mexico with dreamy Max Langston, sure, I agreed to bring their passports across the border but there’s no reason to rush back home right away. This party is just getting started.

LILY: This cannot be happening. It’s like some cruel joke. Or a bad dream. I close my eyes and when I reopen them, they’re still there. Max and Kylie Flores, freak of the century. In bed together. If Kylie thinks I’m giving him up without a fight, she’s dead wrong.

This story is a perfect example of how small actions can have HUGE consequences. I mean who would have thought that doing one single assignment before graduation would lead to a rad trip to Mexico? Kylie, Max, Will and Lily sure didn’t! From What I Remember… is totally unpredictable and unlike everything I’ve ever read. Stacy Kramer and Valerie Thomas managed to create a unique and funny story that will make you forget that today is Monday and the first day of school for many of you….

Blue Mondays (30): Bully by Penelope Douglas

Blue Mondays

Monday mornings are the toughest mornings. Knowing the weekend is over and you’ll have to go to school or work again… But here is my solution: Blue Mondays!  Every other Monday I will pick an awesome book, which I hope will make the week almost bearable for you. Cause reading it will make you forget about everything else! And before you know it, weekend has started once again ^^

Bully by Penelope Douglas

My name is Tate. He doesn’t call me that, though. He would never refer to me so informally, if he referred to me at all. No, he’ll barely even speak to me.

But he still won’t leave me alone.

We were best friends once. Then he turned on me and made it his mission to ruin my life. I’ve been humiliated, shut out, and gossiped about all through high school. His pranks and rumors got more sadistic as time wore on, and I made myself sick trying to stay out of his way. I even went to France for a year, just to avoid him.

But I’m done hiding from him now, and there’s no way in hell I’ll allow him to ruin my senior year. He might not have changed, but I have. It’s time to fight back.

I’m not going to let him bully me anymore.

By accident I came across this lovely book when someone recommended this book to me (thanks again Ciaira!). It’s not an original story, girl gets bullied by the boy she likes, but there’s a nice twist: the girl decides to fight back! Tate will not be a whimsy person anymore. Enough is enough! This was the last time that she shed tears because of Jared. I quite liked the kick-ass chick she became!

However what pulled me in the most was the power of the attraction between her and Jared. You could practically feel it every time those two were near. It was sizzling and made my heart beat faster in my throat. Gah, it was amazing! Therefore I thought that this book would be ideal to forget that the weekend is over, cause you heart will be beating too soundly for you to focus on anything else. A perfect Blue Monday read!

Blue Mondays (29): The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

Blue Mondays

Monday mornings are the toughest mornings. Knowing the weekend is over and you’ll have to go to school or work again… But here is my solution: Blue Mondays!  Every other Monday I will pick an awesome book, which I hope will make the week almost bearable for you. Cause reading it will make you forget about everything else! And before you know it, weekend has started once again ^^

The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

A gripping tale of a girl with a morbid ability that could lead her to a killer . . . and the boy who would never let anything happen to her.

Sixteen-year-old Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her unusual so-called gift. While her confusing feelings for her best friend are new, she has been able to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered—and the imprints that attach to their killers since she was a little girl. Violet has never considered her ability useful, but now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town she realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

Fiercely protective of her, Jay agrees to help Violet search for the murderer. But even as she’s falling in love, Violet is getting closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.

Summer has always been the perfect time for telling scary and creepy stories, when you’re sitting with your friends around a campfire. Stories that will give you nightmares and will keep you in your tent till the sun has once again risen. Cause there’s no way you’ll walk that suddenly long distance to go to the bathroom. Alone, in the dark…

Therefore I chose this story, which I found to be very creepy at times. With murderers, stalkers and life and death situations. It will come back to haunt you and prevent you on focusing something else: that the weekend is once again over… Not a big problem for me though at the moment. I’m on VACATION! But for those poor people out there who do have to wake up early and go to work, this book will definitely keep your mind off the fact that there are five days left before it’s weekend…

Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

Kacey Cleary’s whole life imploded four years ago in a drunk-driving accident. Now she’s working hard to bury the pieces left behind—all but one. Her little sister, Livie. Kacey can swallow the constant disapproval from her born-again aunt Darla over her self-destructive lifestyle; she can stop herself from going kick-boxer crazy on Uncle Raymond when he loses the girls’ college funds at a blackjack table. She just needs to keep it together until Livie is no longer a minor, and then they can get the hell out of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

But when Uncle Raymond slides into bed next to Livie one night, Kacey decides it’s time to run. Armed with two bus tickets and dreams of living near the coast, Kacey and Livie start their new lives in a Miami apartment complex, complete with a grumpy landlord, a pervert upstairs, and a neighbor with a stage name perfectly matched to her chosen “profession.” But Kacey’s not worried. She can handle all of them. What she can’t handle is Trent Emerson in apartment 1D.

Kacey doesn’t want to feel. She doesn’t. It’s safer that way. For everyone. But sexy Trent finds a way into her numb heart, reigniting her ability to love again. She starts to believe that maybe she can leave the past where it belongs and start over. Maybe she’s not beyond repair.

But Kacey isn’t the only one who’s broken. Seemingly perfect Trent has an unforgiveable past of his own; one that, when discovered, will shatter Kacey’s newly constructed life and send her back into suffocating darkness.

This was such a heartbreaking book to read. It’s terrible what happened to Kacey. At more than one occasion I had to fight my tears, so devastating were the events. However, this book is not a total tear-jerker, nope. It also has a very hot and steamy romance going on between Trent and Kacey ^^ Oh my, it’s rare to see this kind of chemistry between two main characters and I LOVED it ^^ Therefore I decided this would be a perfect book to forget that it’s only Monday, since it’s got one of the hottest romance I’ve ever read and enough overwhelming events to keep your mind busy for a long time ^^

Heir to the Underworld by E.D. Walker

Seventeen-year-old Vane Weston has no idea how he survived the category five tornado that killed his parents. And he has no idea if the beautiful, dark-haired girl who’s swept through his dreams every night since the storm is real. But he hopes she is.

Seventeen-year-old Audra is a sylph, an air elemental. She walks on the wind, can translate its alluring songs, and can even coax it into a weapon with a simple string of commands. She’s also a guardian—Vane’s guardian—and has sworn an oath to protect Vane at all costs. Even if it means sacrificing her own life.

When a hasty mistake reveals their location to the enemy who murdered both of their families, Audra’s forced to help Vane remember who he is. He has a power to claim—the secret language of the West Wind, which only he can understand. But unlocking his heritage will also unlock the memory Audra needs him to forget. And their greatest danger is not the warriors coming to destroy them—but the forbidden romance that’s grown between them.

I didn’t know that wind could be make such an interesting story. So I was very pleasantly surprised when I discovered this book with air elementals, or sylphs. Never knew they existed or could be so exiting! It was not long before I was blown away (yes pun intended ^^). It’s such a rich story that touches all kinds of subjects. We’ve got romance, self-awareness, loss and so much more. And it’s a definite page-turner, so an ideal book to help forget it’s once again Monday 😉

Blue Mondays (26): Heir to the Underworld by E.D. Walker

Heir to the Underworld by E.D. Walker

Feisty Frederica Fitzgerald is just one day shy of her sweet sixteen when she’s nearly run over by a tall, dark dreamboat on a big black horse. Freddy can deal with the running over part—no harm done. The problem is the rider, Mr. Sex Bomb himself: Polydegmon, son of Hades and heir to the Greek Underworld.

Freddy’s hooked on Polydegmon from the start (although dude, togas went out of style several thousand years ago), being near him is enough to make her tingle down to her toes. He’s got secrets he isn’t sharing, though, and trouble follows him closer than his own shadow: rabid dogs running around the suburbs, insane crows stalking Freddy and, worst of all, the feral fairies of the Wild Hunt trolling her hometown for their next bit of human game.

The closer Freddy gets to Deg, the weirder her life becomes, until Freddy discovers something about her own past that changes everything she ever thought she knew about herself. And her world…

Heir to the Underworld has a bit of a slow start, but after that you’ll be hooked. A lot of myths are woven into this story, not only the Greek ones, which creates an interesting mishmash of Gods and mythical creatures. E.D. Walker also created a very thrilling story, that had me near tears a couple of times. From frustration, sadness and because of the hopelessness. I was that sucked into the story, therefore I’ll think this will be a good book to help forget it’s already Monday and that the weekend is oh so far away…

Impossible by Komal Kant

Ashton Summers is on her way to becoming the most popular girl in school and nothing—or no one—is going to stand in her way. Especially not Luca Byron, her freak neighbor, with his tattoos, loud music, and distracting green eyes.

Luca Byron has three goals in life: get through high school with a low profile, make sure his garage band becomes something more than a hobby, and try to forget about his insufferable ex-best friend, Ashton, who he can’t get out of his mind.

The last thing Ashton and Luca want to do is rekindle their friendship, but when Ashton takes a tumble down the social ladder, Luca—with his new makeover—is the only one who can help her rise up again by pretending to be her boyfriend. At first, being together is unbearable and annoying, but things start to change as Ashton and Luca discover the real reasons they drifted apart seven years ago.

Now, keeping their hands off each other seems impossible.

This is such a cute story! And funny too ^^ I had a great time reading it and since it’s about love, I thought it would be the ideal book for this week’s Blue Monday. Cause it’s SPRING! And spring means birds, warmth and awakening love ^^ Even though we’ve had the coldest March ever in the Netherlands and April doesn’t seem to bring much improvement…. But well, don’t mind me and my thunder clouds. Go out, read and have fun!
