He loved her the most.
What I haven't said about Colin is that he is a child prodigy. Well, sort of: he can memorize facts and absorb a lot of information (he knows a lot of different languages) but he knows he is less special than he is made out to be. He wants to prove himself, he wants to make something that will contribute something to the world. He wants his Eureka moment to come.
After the K-19 breakup, he may just have the chance to do that. With his friend Hasaan, they take a roadtrip to nowhere in particular where the end up staying in the small town of Gunshot. What happens in Gunshot changes his life... It's his Eureka.
This book... I loved it. In my opinion, it's so much better than The Fault in Our Stars (when I reread it, it wasn't as good as the first time? which was really weird for me). The characters are so unique and I fell in love with them- Hasaan is my favorite, I think. It's a teen romance of course, but it talks about life and relationships and wow I just love it. 5 out of 5, man.
This book is about (like what the title says, obviously) a Fangirl. She loves the book series Simon Snow (the novel's equivalent to our Harry Potter), and is a diehard fan. In contrast to her twin, Cath is very introverted, and prefers to avoid big social situations.
While this maayy sound cliché, it's very very well written. It's realistic, and seems like it would be able to take place in the modern day! And is there romance? Yes. Is there rifts in the relationships between the characters? Oh yeah. Is it well paced? Yep!
Needless to say, 10/10 recommend.

31. Dorothy Must Die By: Danielle Paige
So many books, so little time...
Amy Gumm is just another girl from Kansas (if having neon-pink hair classifies as "just another girl"), until she was swept from her shabby trailer home by a tornado. Storybook-sounding much? Amy couldn't believe it either.
Before she even realizes it, she is recruited by The Order: a group of some of the only people left in Oz who know how to use magic. They want her to join and help them take down Dorothy once and for all.
What happened to Dorothy, you ask? They say that after the story happened (yes, the same story you all know... It was all real), she came back to Oz... And the power went to her head, to put it simply. Now Oz is in ruins and shambles, and it will continue to get worse until someone does something about it.
Will Amy be that someone? Will she be the one who take her down?
Because after all, Dorothy must die.
This book is beautiful, and I didn't stop until I was done. Full of suspense, love, and new things with each and every page turn. I hope you'll fall in love with this book like I did.
Okay, pretty much every book I have read is either four or five stars. It's not my fault I pick good books though, so don't blame me, blame the author for being so darn good.
Anyway, I loved this book. It was a great read! My friends didn't know there was a sequel, so when I found out there was, you wouldn't believe how excited there was. There is also a third book that's coming! If you need something to read in your spare time, definitely consider checking this one out.
This book was amazingly beautiful, I loved it, and I cried. Really.
It was just that powerful, and affected me that much. This book goes through the lives of two teens, both on common ground with cancer. One has no hope because they have no cure, and the other is living life like a rollercoaster that's only going up.
There is conflict, oh the drama, and beautiful developed characters that will feel so real to you. Once you read this book, you will really want to enjoy your life until your last good day.
This book was definitely my cup of cocoa. Can I just say that it was amazing? I admit, the beginning was kind of slow, but I loved it. In fact, I'm reading the sequel right now! ^^
Divergent is one of those books in those awesome trilogies [Ex. Hunger Games, Uglies, Matched, Chasing Yesterday, etc.], and it definitely does not disappoint. It's set in the future, where humanity is tearing itself apart- in which the people divided themselves. Those who blames ignorance became the Erudite. Those who blames deceit became Candor, and those who blamed war and fighting became Amity. The people who blamed selfishness became Abnegation. And finally, those who blamed cowardice became the Dauntless.
This book is full action, and just a smidge of romance (ooh!). It's one you should totally put on your list ASAP.
I'm not finished with my book Hex Hall By Rachel Hawkins yet, so I can't review it!
So instead, enjoy this amazing trailer for one of my favorite books.~
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 5 out of 5 stars
You know what they say: Don't judge a book by it's cover. Well, as weird as this title is, it's an awesome book! It has everything: a creative plot, suspense, and adventure.
Emmy is a young girl, with a sinister cold-hearted nanny. As kind as the nanny seems to be on the outside, it looks as if she is hiding something.
And for another thing, her parent's trips around the world are taking longer and longer, until it seems like one day they might never come back. It's not Emmy- she gets straight A+'s, and even eats her vegetables: even the slimy ones. What's going on? Emmy soon finds out- and her world turns upside
Mai Opinion: This was really good, and very interesting. It's different from regular books, but you know, in a good way. If you need a free read, you should read this book!
Sequel: Emmy and the Home for Troubled Girls
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 5 out of 5 stars
Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie is a nice book, humorous and sad at the same time. It's about a teenage boy trying to balance the usual: playing drums in All-City Jazz Band, girls (haha), and the occasional Dangerous Pie (yep, you are going to have to read the book to find out what that is!).
Steven, the main character in this book, has always taken his "Big Brother Protector" job for his brother, Jeffrey, pretty seriously. But it seems as if just when he turns around and isn't looking, Jeffy gets cancer.
Mai Opinion~ I loved this book. It's upbeat and pretty funny, and it's also serious at the times when it's needed. It's a really well written book, I would say.
Sequel: After Ever After
Take a seat.
A book and a warm drink is all you need, really...
So get comfy and take a sip as I review books that I love.
warning: there may be spoilers!
