The Choice & A Million Suns

I'm reviewing two of the books I read for the read-a-thon today. I know it's a little odd why I'm doing them together. The Choice is well, obviously about a choice. A Million Suns is about many--those that have been made in the past, those that need to  or must be made, and those that are still yet to be made.  How each choice leads to a another. How choices affect choices.

The Choice Summary from Good Reads:
Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life -- boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his good-natured buddies -- he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style.
That is, until Gabby Holland moves in next door. Despite his attempts to be neighborly, the appealing redhead seems to have a chip on her shoulder about him...and the presence of her longtime boyfriend doesn't help. Despite himself, Travis can't stop trying to ingratiate himself with his new neighbor, and his persistent efforts lead them both to the doorstep of a journey that neither could have foreseen.
Spanning the eventful years of young love, marriage and family, The Choice ultimately confronts us with the most heart wrenching question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?

As yall have possibly gathered from some of my other Nicholas Sparks reviews, his books are very hit or miss for me. (Most of the time, at least. A Bend in the Road was an exception). The Choice was a hit.
I loved the romance between Travis and Gabby and how she learned to love him. I loved that they ended up together, because I thought the choice was going to be Gabby choosing between Travis and her long-time boyfriend. I had no idea how harsh and agonizing the choice (the actual one) was going to be.
I suppose that was the only real problem I had with the book, that Part Two didn't seem to fit with Part One. I really liked Part One and wished that Sparks had continued on to when Travis and Gabby got married and how she had had to make a choice for Travis ohhhh and then he had to make a choice for her years later! But Gabby's choice wasn't really elaborated on much, which I wanted. I wanted more of how they actually came to be. Together.

I'll leave you with two questions:
How far should you go to keep the hope of love alive?
How far should a person go in the name of true love?

Think on it.

And here are two alternative covers that I liked.
The Choice      The Choice

Moving forward.

A Million Suns (Across the Universe, #2)
Summary from Beth Revis's website:
Godspeed was once fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.

It’s been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He’s finally free to enact his vision – no more Phydus, no more lies.

But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that’s growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.

In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.

I want to say one thing first, before I say anything else. I think it is the best idea to read Across the Universe and A Million Suns back-to-back or consecutively. Because I read ATU in September 2011 and I didn't remember that much except Amy was frozen with her parents and supposed to wake up 300 years later on a new planet but was woken up early and that there was a guy named Harley who painted and a boy named Elder who wanted to lead with the morals of right and wrong and of a controlling, corrupt leader named Eldest who was in charge of the ship, Godspeed.

AMS takes place three months after ATU has ended. Amy has come to terms that the life she lived on Earth and all that she knew is over. Gone. Now all she sees are walls. That keep her trapped. She misses her parents and her home and wishes she had never left it.

But there is Elder, who loves and cares for her and is determined to lead Godspeed without lies or Phydus. He wants to give people choices, but when he does the people hate that they are limited. But on board a space ship that is crumbling, how could the choices NOT be limited? Limited choices also go for Amy, not just the others on Godspeed. Here's a quote:
"Love without choice isn't love at all. 'Just that I don't want to be with you just because there's no one else.'"

As for the plot, there were things I liked and didn't like. I found it far far far too obvious who was behind the sabotage. I also didn't like how so many people DIED. Especially this one person who was carrying a child. A woman who had been through much and deserved to live. That really made me irritated. I liked how Orion was still a big part of the novel even though he was frozen and I wonder what happens when he gets out. I thought the best and most fascinating part of the novel was Amy hunting for the clues that Orion had left behind and Amy found out. Although, I don't think Orion was very smart in letting Amy make the decisions for the very reason he thought she should make it. Of course Amy would make the choice she did.

So overall, I felt like the plot became just a little bit too predictable with the ship's engine and the big secret. Although, I did mostly enjoy it there was a lot that irritated me, especially with the random deaths, the rebellion, the sabotage, and the big secret. Oh and the ending. It's a cliff hanger.

Here is where I will spoil the book so don't go any further. But I do have one last piece of advice. Google search "contengency plan" and "sentient definition." It will help if you do. Now don't go any further, unless you've already read AMS.

Amy and Elder decide to go to the new planet. The planet they are meant to be on. Home. They have reached their goal. They have done what they set out to do. Although at great risk. They do not know what is on the new planet. They don't know if they will live or die. They only know that to live in a world without walls is worth it.

So now I ask. Would you--would I--have made the same choice? To go to the new planet or to stay on Godspeed?

I have also found some other very good reviews of A Million Suns that I would like to share.

Cover Love Thursday--July 12, 2012

This week's cover:
A Million Suns (Across the Universe, #2)A Million Suns by Beth Revis

Why I chose this cover:
It's gorgeous, beautiful, stunning. It's one of those covers that can take your breath away. It took mine.
Everything about this cover reflects the book. Amy longs for Earth, a place without walls and without lies and secrets. Most of all she longs for her parents and for the life they left behind when they chose the journey. She is reaching out toward the galaxy outside of herself, to the stars, the suns, and to the silence in the blackness of space. It is dark, but bright in space. There is light. She reaches out, Elder holding her hand, longing too.

Book Description via Amazon:

Once Upon a Read-a-thon Wrap up & Mini Challenge (3)

It's Day 3, the wrap up day of this readathon, and here's what I got through:

 The Choice         A Million Suns (Across the Universe, #2)
 A Gift from Brittany    The Art of Racing in the Rain

So I didn't get to Cold Mountain this week, but I plan on reading it some day. As for my weekly picks: I completed TARR and plan on reading Tears of the Giraffe on Friday so I will have completed both of those this week. Overall I think this challenge went a lot better this year than it did last year! So I'm glad for that.

Here's your answers for the mini challenge, hosted at the Reader Bee.

What is your most anticipated book for 2012?
(It can be an upcoming release, or one that's already been released.)

Even though I know it most likely defeats the purpose of the question, I can have more than one answer, right? As yall know  I always have to have more than one.

Reached (Matched, #3) I've already pre-ordered this one on Amazon.

 Pushing the LimitsI'm getting this one through the DAC tour and am so excited for it!

Tiger Lily I'm pretty sure this one came out. Have heard so many excellent, terrific, awesome reviews of it. So I totally look forward to readin' it.

Okay, those are my top 3 new releases, so I guess that's good enough. Although I could keep going...

Once Upon a Read-a-thon Update & Mini Challenges (2)

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

Well I finished I A Gift from Brittany. A bunch of books that I had requested from the library came in yesterday, so I have a whole bunch of new books to read besides the 3 I wanted to read. So I am currently reading The Choice by Nicholas Sparks. If I have time I am going to see if I can get to Cold Mountain, because I now have a lot of other books to read! I've decided to save Snow Falling on Cedars for another time, because I'm going on a missions trip next week, leaving Saturday and I don't want to start it and then not finish it.
Each week I pick out books from my bookshelf that I am going to read and this week's picks were Cold Mountain (as I've said) and the Art of Racing in the Rain. I hope to get through them during this readathon. I haven't been reading that much because I've been going to the pool. But tomorrow (Wednesday) I plan on getting a LOT of reading done.

On to the mini challenges.

Once upon a time there was a bookish fight…
As the story teller, I now want you to tell me which two characters are fighting and WHY! If you want to, you’re also more than welcome to guess the outcome. ;)
It doesn’t have to be anything too detailed; we’re here to have fun!

Katsa from Graceling and Lena from Delirium are paired up to be running buddies in the Wilds. While they are running, Katsa says she can run faster and is tougher than Lena. Lena disagrees and they end up arguing which turns into a mad and wild race. At the end they get into a fist fight of who won because they both crossed the line at the same time. As much as I love Lena from Delirium and as tough as she is, I think Katsa takes the victory.

Simply share a foreign author whose work you adore. I personally am from the United States but we may have readers from all over so just make sure the author you share is from a country other than your own. Tell us why you like them. Are there any books by them in particular that you would recommend? How did you come across their work? The whole point is to share and allow us all to discover a new author that we might otherwise never have been exposed literally open up a whole new world of books for one another.

I'm the type of person who likes books about Americans who go overseas and are forever changed by their experiences that by going to a new place they are able to become new people.

Examples of books I have read that are like this are
  A Thousand Days in Venice: An Unexpected Romance    Keys to the Castle

 Rain Song     A Gift from Brittany

I just love books on people going from place to place in search of themselves. Love those stories. They are the best ones.

As for books that are written by international authors and are set outside the US,  I would recommend
  The Queen of Water    Dreams of Significant Girls     Saving Francesca

There are so many other books I could recommend, but I'm going to wrap this up and do somethin' else. Have a great one and please comment below about these mini challenges and if you want some more recommendations, just ask and I'll give them. Leave your links below and I will get back to you. Lookin' forward to yalls' answers!

Q: Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don't like and LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place.

A: I really got into classics junior year in high school, and to my surprise I really loved a lot of them. Farewell to Arms, the Awakening, The Great Gatsby, Their Eyes were watching God. And of course there's Shakespeare--Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Macbeth. And finally Austen with P&P. Austen who led me to Bronte and Gaskell and whoever wrote Wives and Daughters (although my Yiya did introduce me to WAD with the movie, which was excellent). I'm just sayin' I never expected to love the classics, but I do.

Damsel in Distress

I got this book for free via Net Galley. This is no way at all affected my review or my opinions, which are my own. Thank you.

Okay, so everybody knows how I loved Scarlet, right? The tale of how she begins to love Robin Hood and who she really is. It's set from the tale of Robin Hood and Lady Marian, his love. Well, when I requested this one from NG I was thinking okay, another Robin Hood related book. Not the case. It's the story of Katherine de Montrain, Kat, an heiress with a castle and Lord Damian Montjoy, a knight who rides with King Richard in the Crusades.

Kat is forced to wed for her own protection against an evil man who wants her. She, however, despises Montjoy, though he seduces her.It's one of those stories where ladyhastowed--doesntwanttolovehusband--fallsinlovewithhusband--hastobetrayhusbandtosavehislife. This book had the potential to be so much more, to be so much better. I expected so much more from it.

It is related to Robin Hood. Kat is the Lady Greensleeves and Damian is the Silver Sword, who saves both their lives one day and the life of Kat's father. It is this act, that propels Kat into the role of helping Robin. But she's ultimately a woman and an heiress and must play the role of women of her time.  I wish Drake/Graham had written more on this roles, on how they were a legend, rather than their romantic relationship. That's what I was looking for.

And Damsel in Distress did not live up. I'd like to mention how it was riddled with ellipses, exclamation marks, and modern day English when it's set in medieval times. The action scenes were so confusing that I had a hard time following them. The betrayal was set up poorly. And I think Damian should have told her he loved her long before he actually did. It would have solved so many problems between them. Also, there's no white horse in this novel! (I know it's very miniscule, but I'm seriously bugged by it)

Overall, I didn't like this book, because it's very cliche. However it was my first ebook on NG so I proud that I finished it. I'm proud that I got on NG even though I really don't like ebooks (no it's not that I don't like them, it's that I like print so much better). If ebooks are the new thing, that I'm jumping in. I do have plans to get either a kindle or a nook for my birthday:)

Leave any thoughts below in the comments section. Thanks for reading.

Cover Love Thursday--July 5, 2012

This week's cover:

Sever by Lauren DeStefano

Why I chose this cover:
If you've been alive (or on twitter) at all the past couple of weeks, you have seen this. Now I loved the wither cover and thought the fever cover was creepy. I think what I love the most about these covers is the SYMBOLISM.

In Wither, the ring is on her finger and the bird is in the cage; Rhine is wearing a (weird, in my opinion) dress and cool eyeshadow, and sitting in a fancy chair. She does not look ready to face the world. The cover matches Rhine in Wither. She is Landon's bride, his prize. She's belongs to Landon, hence the ring. She's the bird, not allowed to fly away. She's kept caged. But she escapes. She escapes, because she has to. Because she's withering.

In Fever, Rhine is wearing a pretty dress, but is on her knees, head raised, looking defeated, like she's giving up. She is still not ready, still being oppressed, even though she has fled with Gabriel.  She's holding cards and is surrounded by cloth and cases. Her hair looks better, but mainly the cover makes me think of Fever, as though there is a sickness, because not all is right in Rhine's world. The ring is still on her finger.

In Sever, Rhine is sitting up straight and is wearing such a nice dress. The bird is perched on a ledge and the ring is off her finger. She's free, severing her life from Landon and his creepy father. I also love the bright green. Wanted to get my nails done in this color green, but haven't found the color yet. So I settled for a very light and very pretty pink. I also love the purple of Wither. I love the pose in Fever the most however (even though it doesn't have a very colorful cover)

So yeah, I basically love these books and their covers and cannot wait for Sever to come out.
Here's the link to the USA today article on this cover:
Here is the trailer for Fever:
Here's the trailer for Wither:

 Aren't these trailers awesome? So ready to see the Sever trailer? And really need to reread Wither and Fever before Sever comes out! So much to do!

Please comment and leave a link to your own CLT and I will get back to you. Thanks for reading & happy future readings!

Shaping Destiny by Destiny Allison

Shaping Destiny
I recieved this book for free in exchange from the author for an honest review. This is no way at all affected my opinions which are my own. Thank you.

I am an artist. I am a lover of life. I am a reader. Shaping Destiny is the story of one women who is also an artist. I still don't know if she is a lover of life, but she is a lover of art.

While I didn't agree with everything she wrote (I'll get to that), there is certain wisdom in this book. I'd like to share it with yall. Here.

"Sculpture came from the root sculpere--to carve or alter. There was also a reference to the term "shelf" in the dictionary and when I looked it up something clicked. I imagined an ocean shelf, carved and altered by the shifting sea."

"I was working on a piece trying to understand love--how to hold it and find solace within it. I couldn't get there. I found only that the connection we strive for when we love--the touching beyond body and into the soul--was impossible for me...Love isn't fixed or solid. It requires work--struggle and desire, hope and memory, a momentary pause in intimacy and then the effort to go again, fight again, touch again, and dream again."

"I rigged another shop lamp to the ceiling and the light shone down the empty spiral of the form, illuminating its center...The sculpture was positioned so that my gaze rested on the lower half of the letter A and there was a trickle of light that flowed like water down one of the legs. My eyes followed the light up the leg and behind the line that crossed the triangle into the interior or the work..The form of Faith was dark, a shadow. The light existed only in the negative space of the interior...Faith is a solid object and we exist inside it as the thing that cannot be defined. The relationship was important, but not in the way we had thought. Faith defines us, but not the other way around. Faith is. We become. And we are capable of becoming only in faith. Faith is the vessel that contains the free-flowing substance that is us."

"Grief is not about what you didn't get. It is about what you didn't give."

Now that I have shared this with yall, I will move on to what I disagree with. For Shaping Destiny is almost a discussion, an invitation to think and challenge the artist's mind. So I share my thoughts.

Shaping Destiny is the story of a woman's soul. Bare. Real. Bold. It's unlike anything I have ever read. Yet there are hints of humanness, and how we are all flawed. And here I do the human thing, I judge, I play the critic. I am aware of this.

"I let them scrape and suck the child out of me..."

It is a poverty that a child must die so that you can live as you wish. --Mother Theresa

"Faith does NOT become." Oh, Destiny Allison, if you think this, then I think you don't understand faith very well. Because faith DOES become.
I've seen it.

All I have left to say is that Shaping Destiny, ultimately, revealed to me that Destiny Allison does NOT understand the meaning of life and faith. Although, I give her art credit--she IS an artist. Her sculptures will make you think, because art is subjective. The meaning of a piece if different to every person who looks at it, which is different from that of the artist's. And the piece only has meaning because someone gives it meaning. It is that way in art. If you create it, you give it meaning. If you see it you give it meaning. The meaning lies in your thoughts.

Nights in Rodanthe

 Nights in Rodanthehere's an alternative cover Nights In Rodanthe

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks comes a tender story of hope and joy; of sacrifice and forgiveness—a moving reminder that love is possible at any age, at any time, and often comes when we least expect it. At forty-five, Adrienne Willis must rethink her entire life when her husband abandons her for a younger woman. Reeling with heartache and in search of a respite, she flees to the small coastal town of Rodanthe, North Carolina to tend to a friend’s inn for the weekend. But when a major storm starts moving in, it appears that Adrienne’s perfect getaway will be ruined—until a guest named Paul Flanner arrives. At fifty-four, Paul has just sold his medical practice and come to Rodanthe to escape his own shattered past. Now, with the storm closing in, two wounded people will turn to each other for comfort—and in one weekend set in motion feelings that will resonate throughout the rest of their lives. (from

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Nicholas Sparks has done it again! Another deep, moving, passionate, broken and beautiful love story. It's so so so beautiful. I don't have any other word to sum it up. I love how it's written in 3rd person perspective, how it's set during a storm by the beach, and how mysterious and intriguing Rodanthe is. Even just it's name.

I love that Adrienne is such a strong mother--and woman and that she is there for her children. I love that Paul is willing to give up everything to get to know his son. Paul and Adrienne both make tremendous sacrifices for their children. Paul's story is sad. Stories of striving people often are. Striving never gets us anywhere, does it? But yet we have to work, we have to accomplish something. But even at a personal cost? Although isn't everything in life about weighing the personal costs, which ultimately is our Time? Just thoughts. I have a whole philosophy about striving and time and how they relate, but I want to focus on NIR.

This novel is so sweet and tender. And it's sad. When Adrienne whispered the words, "Don't you know?" I knew. Because ultimately this story is about taking life one day at a time even when it's hard, about loving life despite death, caring for one's children (the greatest love story ever is that of a mother's love, someone once said), the sacrifices and decisions we make, the influence we can have on each other, the indifferent universe and how painful it is to live inside.

I would recommend this book to everybody and am giving it a 5 star rating. It's such a beautiful story. It will change the way your think about life and love (it did for me) Read it.

I honestly do not believe that I have done NIR justice with this review. But this is one of those books that is too beautiful for words. So I leave you with a quote from Nights in Rodanthe:
“The greater the love, the greater the tragedy when it’s over. Those two elements always go together.”

Teaser and Tuney Tuesday--July 3, 2012

Hosted by Miz B at should be reading. Go to her website for offical rules. Don't forget to link up and comment.

I have two teasers this week (one is from a NG book)
The Mermaid ChairI've owned this for a while and got it from BookMooch because I loved the Secret Life of Bees. Hoping this one will live up to it. Have also heard there is a movie so I might have to get that too. Love good movies.

My read: The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd

My teaser: Something struck me then: I'd never done any of those things my mother had done. Never danced on a beach. Never made a bonfire. Never waded into the ocean with laughing women and tied my life to theirs (pg 91).

This other teaser is from one of those "currently reading" books I got on Netgalley. I actually think I'm going to finish it. Amazed that I am actually reading an ebook.

My read: Damsel in distress by Heather Graham

Teaser: Then she felt the fire and steel in his fingers. And when he looked at her, she saw the silver triumph in his eyes (pg 173).

Tuney Tuesdays is hosted at JAYA and Eileen Li's blog. Click the button for official rules and don't forget to comment.

Well there hasn't been a particular song that I've listened to this week. But I am reading the mermaid chair and I DID come across this song/music:
