Book Review: The Vinly Princess - Yvonne Prinz

Summer is here, and 16-year-old Allie, a self-professed music geek, is exactly where she wants to be: working full-time at Berkeley’s ultra-cool Bob and Bob Records. There, Allie can spend her days bantering with the street people, talking the talk with the staff, shepherding the uncool bridge-and-tunnel shoppers, all the while blissfully surrounded by music, music, music.

I very much enjoyed this quirky entertaining read. The characters were great they were all so developed and so wonderful in all their uniqueness. The big thing the book centers on is music (of which I am devote fan). It is brimming with cool musical references and has so many cool new ideas of music to try. Reading this book made me want to branch out and try to listen to something that isn't rock, so far I have not succeeded I just ended up listening to Snow Patrol for hours, but I plan to keep trying :) Anyway this is a great book for anyone with a passion for music or quirky books with quirky characters! I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Have a great day! And Happy Reading! ~Andrea~

Book Review: Darkness Becomes Her

Ari can't help but feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish white hair that can't be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.

Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.

She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

I was so into this book that I read it in one setting. I was up till 3 in the morning absolutely unable to put this book down. It just had so much mystery that I was on the edge of my seat. I loved all the characters, they were all just so unique and so wonderful to read about. Plus it had that whole greek gods and goddess myth thing going on, of which I am a huge fan :)When I got to the big revelation in the book I was so excited to know what the big mystery was but I was also so sad becasue that meant it was over until the next book :( So as you can tell by my gushing this is an awesome read that I give 5 out of 5 stars too and I reccomend everyone go read it! - Happy Reading ~ Andrea ~
