On t be afraid for her because she will be okay with a foreign stranger Makes perfect sense In real life a girl might as easily end up murdered in some dark alley with her body parts tossed into some trash can But no it s love I am sorry I ranted You know I am Mad in love It s fookin insane I talked to my mother last night after what happened at De brevitate vitae your house She s angry at me for becoming so involved and for sneaking intoour room and jeopardizing Signaler un problème you I know I m not good forou I have to go home Cora My flight for Ireland leaves tonight Back in Edward and Bella fanfic territory She is just that special Her love changed him Now he has to leave her You might think that finally she might voice her feelings Oh but Un monstre dans les céréales you are so wrong Worry radiated from my center up to my chest closing off my throat I swallowed hard Had I done something to him I was simply trying to give him love last night from my soul to his but maybe because I was this silver aberration I had inadvertently affected him badlyThen the truth I couldn t hold back any longer I loveou I m not the same person since I met ou You ve affected me forever Finn Awful 35 StarsWhile this story is guilty of a few of the most popular YA tropes it was still a fun one There is the insta love between two characters and an attraction that they couldn t explain although I loved the explanation of this later in the book so I m going to forgive this There was also heroine who discovers she has a gift of sorts the possibility for a love triangle in future books a uirky friend actually two and a near perfect guy that is there to come to the rescue anytime ou have a freak outThat said there were a lot of things I really enjoyed about Scintillate the first being that it moves very uickly The chapters are short and fast paced There isn t a lot of time spent with anything that isn t specifically driving the story forward There are also a lot of great one liners throughout that were intelligent and fun like Dad didn t answer her He did that left uestions lying on the ground like dirty socks There is an introduction to the world that they are in some nice descriptions of a few of the locations in Ireland and the redwoods Cora liked to visit I really wanted a little description to some of the things in Ireland but I m hoping that will come into play in the future books Also I m a sucker for forbidden romance so this is right up my alley The author grabbed my attention right away and I liked the role she let the parents play in the story not perfect but not absentee eitherCora has been protected by her father for most of her life After her mother left when she was five in Ireland her dad put her in a protective bubble and never let her out She hasn t exactly tried to break out of that bubble until now After being deathly ill she starts to see colors around everyone even herself but the aura surrounding her looks different than everyone else Cora knows her dad is keeping secrets from her about who she is and why her mother disappeared and now she is ready to start looking for some answers But the people who hold the truth don t want to tell her anything Maybe it s better for the heavy secrets to ride on the shoulders of those who are strong enough to carry them Cora is ready to break out of that cage her father has built around her whether he wants her to or not But the true catalyst for change is Finn A boy from Ireland Cora s birthplace is inexplicitly drawn to her It s odd but once they meet Cora feels something is pulling them together and she can t explain it she can t explain how he affects her Aaaah Love and Lightning Mari said with dramatic pause She tucked he straight hair behind her ear and winked at me They both can strike sudden and hot Finn also taken aback by how fast things are moving between them leaves to go back to Ireland with little explanation Cora might be a little heartbroken but she also has bigger mysteries to solve than just her heart She needs to know why she shines differently than all those around her She wants to find what her mother was looking for in Ireland that might have got her killed and why it seems she has been hidden from the world for so long Cora needs to do it uickly because there is someone following her and some of the people around her are dying of unusual causesIn Ireland she finds someone just like her and also that boy that left her behind Now with the help of Giovanni a and Finn she might find out just what her mother was after but it will lead to places she never meant to go and betrayal she never places she never meant to go and betrayal she never coming Cora will make discoveries about herself but the costs will be higher than she was willing to pay Choices luv We either regret the experiences we have or the ones we were too scared to have I ll be interested to see where the story goes in the next book and I pretty sure there are a few characters that we haven t seen the last of At least I hope ARC provided by Entangled Publishing LLC via Netgalley for an unbiased review uotes may differ from final version Sometimes the girl can be so Unwise that it drives me nuts But the story line is really really cool and uniue I loved reading and trying to put the pieces together I m on team Giovanni but for some reason it feels like it s not working out that way Hopefully she some reason it feels like it s not working out that way Hopefully she realize Or maybe my mind will change who knows Not only was he a danger to me physically he was dangerous to my heart And now I had a new worry how many innocent people did I condemn to death because I saved his life This book is teenaged wish fulfillment at its most insipid It is banal it is tired old recycled tripe I can t even hate it because the author does such a good job of catering to a very specific audience so well It is a Twilight clone of the highest order and of the lowest ualityDo Painting Landscapes from Your Imagination you want a lesson on unoriginality Read this book This book will sell and I predict that it sells well because it captures everything that an audience with a taste for a starry eyed love affair will ever want More discerning readers will want to stay away because this book is fantasy driven xerox of a million other Young Adult Twilight clonesHow doou write an YA fantasy that caters solely to a starry eyed girl s fantasies You take everything that is bad everything that is a trope a clich in YA paranormal and fantasy and Lippenbekenntnisse you put it together in one neat packageThere is nothing original about this book The romance is of the insta love sort There is no courtship there is no building of relationships There is however1 A moonlit fantasy of a romance with adamant declarations of eternal love before 14 of the book is through2 A love triangle between a plain but really beautiful girl who upon discovering that she is different captures the heart of two vastly different astoundingly handsomeoung menThe Tropes1 The Different Girl You re different from them Story of my life I d always been different never fit in but he had no idea how different I felt lately That s probably not a compliment but I ll take it as one Did Chasing McCree Chasing McCree you hear that That s the sound of me rolling my eyes Yes ladies and gentlemen we have another special girl on our hand Cora The one girl who has always felt somehow that she is DIFFERENT from everyone elseBecause fuck DNA right Fuck the fact that every single one of us is different Fuck the fact that every single one of us is individual to the very strands of our building blocksI hate it when characters label themselves as different You are not Claimingou are different is meaningless and to me it loudly declares I AM A SPECIAL FUCKING SNOWFLAKEGet the fuck over Impossible Things yourself2 The Beautiful Girl Who Doesn t See It All I inherited from my mother was my fair Irish complexion My curvy figure was pure Chileno as was my hair deep brown almost black and wild as if it had been wound around thick tree branches every night Tree branches huh You don t say So here s a girl with pale beautiful flawless skin curvy in just the right places hair that s beautifully enviably thickand she thinks she s just freakin ordinary allOh and her lashes They re just too fucking long LONG EYELASHES ARE SOOOOOO UGLY It was me in the picture without a On to believe that someone is hunting and killing people like her if there are any others like her who are still aliveWhile investigating the danger associated with these auras Cora is inexplicably drawn to Finn a gorgeous Irish exchange student Their attraction is

Light Key TrilogySeuence in Series 1Paperback 304 pagesPublisher Entangled Teen Publication Date February 4 2014ISBN 10 1622661451ISBN 13 978 1622661459Rating 5 Stars FAVORITEGenre Science Fiction Young Adult Romance FantasyFind this book on Barnes Noble Scintillate came as a real surprise for me I didn t expect anything of it I thought the premise sounded interesting and just decided to give it a try But wow though I had a few issues with the novel it was actually very good and I m very much looking forward to reading the seuel hopefully soon The concept of seeing auras was brilliant and the world building very round and fulfilling in my eyes There was no infodumping at all it all flows very smoothly along with the plot Here we meet And the Ass Saw the Angel young Cora who has lived a pretty uneventful life until she ends up in hospital with a mysterious illness and suddenly sees a bright light around people They each glow with different colors according to their moods personalities secrets they keep love they share and so on First Cora s afraid something might be wrong with her She shares her fear and her confusing new ability with her father who is the ever present overprotective constant in her life But he only comes up with lame excuses and doesn t take her seriously It takes a while until Cora figures out what s really wrong with her vision While Cora discovers that there is a whole new world waiting for her to be discovered she also meets Finn Asou can read in the blurb it s a severe case of insta attraction if not even insta love at least from Finn s side BUT this is perfectly well explained by the end of the novel I found it a little bit disturbing most of the time which is also my only issue with the book Finn was a little bit creepy It s absolutely comprehendible that Cora falls for him as she s so inexperienced when it comes to guys But hey wait until Why We Want You to Be Rich you ve met his mother Thenou know where all the creepiness comes from I d sort of hoped that she wouldn t see him ever again but I already knew when she went to Ireland that all hope would be in vainI thought Giovanni was much swoon worthy even though he seems to carry a few secrets of his own just like everybody else With the appearance of Giovanni who becomes a very important person for Cora and her personal uest in Ireland the story speeds up again There wasn t a boring moment in this book it s full of twists and turns and keeps Nationalism: Critical Concepts in Political Science you on the edge wanting to find out what happens nextI would love to read about Dun and Mari in the next book Cora s best friends and characters who seem to have much to offer than their role in Scintillate Also Cora s grandma Tulki seems to be uite an interesting character and I m sure she ll be thoroughly introduced in the seuelI have to add that I really liked Clark s writing it was simply and easy to read but still beautiful His certainty irritated me How doou know Do Marx Demystifies Calculus Triangle Papers you know where she is The words dropped from my lips like petals Fragile Easily crushed I held my breath I can only recommend this book to all YA lovers as it is already one of my biggest book surprises of 2014 It uestions the definition of humanity and tells the story of a girl who needs to cope with her role in the greater scheme of the world learning how to make her own decisions I hope Scintillate and Tracy Clark will get a lot of attention because this book definitely deserves it So there remains only one uestion when will the seuel be released I ve had the privilege of advance reading this selection and readersou are in for a treat Steamy romance a uniue premise and a charming heroine makes for an intriguing read I m trying to figure out why people love it What might have been once successful with Edward and Bella as pure wish fulfillment of teenage unicorns and dragons dreams might still work for pre pubescent girls Publishers sure think like that but I can t believe that 14 Girl With No Job: The Crazy Beautiful Life of an Instagram Thirst Monster year olds still fall for that crap Mary Sue MC slut shaming insta love paired up with totally unrealistic creepy sugary dialogue followed by love triangle including sparks flying literally and a lot of magic at work Those eyes connected with mine and every atom in the room crackled with delight Plain Jane gets not only the hot guy but two of them The hot Irish exchange student who can sing and shit and the blond blue eyed Italian Giovanni who is just like her sparkling and shit What is with all the guys panting after her It s implied several times that our MC is plain socially inapt but of course the two hottest guys on earth insta sea how super special she is PHHHLEEEASEEE spare me Of course the main character in this Twilight fanfic is not only super special but also super dumb When someone tellsou to not tell other people about To Dream in the City of Sorrows your super specialness because it s dangerous implying that all others likeou are dead what would ou do A Try to not tell anyoneB write I am sparkling silver what does it mean you do A Try to not tell anyoneB write I am sparkling silver what does it mean a public internet forum and for good measure tell people at schoolWhat really unnerved me though is the following It is not ok to make a creep into the love interest Creepy is creepy Basta I mean come on the MC fucking fears Finn he irritates her she s afraid of him but that is all cast aside dismissed as soon as she remembers how beautiful he is How can it actually be ok to advice teenage girls to not listen to their own instincts I loathe it when authors are implying that girls shouldn t think about their own fears because Prince Charming is just that beautiful and charismatic No manboy should be above a girl s right to decline But this book tells girls that voicing their discomfort is of no importance that it s better to feel awkward and submissive then to voice our fear She knows the guy only by sight but he s popping up in her hospital room at night creeps up on her in a room at school and surprisingly comes to her rescue out of the blue And now he wants to tag along Creepy much But hey it s ok because he is Irish and has those good looks Do Dicintai atau Mencintai you mind if I tag
