Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell

Let me first start by saying, I wanted to be sort of vague with my review. As I thought about it, it would be very hard to. So I decided I would just write everything I thought and felt while reading.

***********HEADS UP, THERES SPOILERS AHEAD***************

 

Gwendolyn is pretty much stuck taking care of her crazy mother, and just moved into a new apartment with her. Her friend Olivia helps her best friend by offering to help her family move. The mother has a freak out in one of the rooms because of a mural on the wall, so the girls end up taking the room while the mom stays in the living room. They go for a run, and that’s when Gwen starts hearing and seeing weird things happening, and she rushes to get home. Theres a lantern in the room thats always remains on, but as Gwen goes to turn the light down, she ends up turning the light off and gets attacked by dark creatures. So begins our story, Peter Pan with a twist.

Rowan, the captain, is extremely transparent, with a dark past. He really does care for his lost boys. I think I may be a reaching a bit when I say that he reminded me of another devilishly handsome pirate from Once Upon A Time. So naturally I was drawn into the Captain’s charm. He does not in fact have a hook, which im glad, makes the story a bit different.

Olivia’s character made me angry, I didn’t like her at all. I understand Neverland does something to your memories, but still. She seemed into herself even before going to Neverland. We all know a girl like Olivia, and I bet she’s no ones favorite.

“Peter Pan” is such a great character, he’s such a trickster. I honestly thought that he was the bad character, almost (sorry to reference) like OUAT’s peter pan. He seems so interesting and caring at first. I favored the Captain though, so it made me a bit upset when Gwen was falling for Pan.

******************ENDING SPOLIER **********************

The overall book was really good, I couldn”t put it down, I think I finished it in 3 hours. I fell for the Captain, and was really hoping throughout the book he was who he said he is. I didn’t like the way the book ended though, I was hoping for Gwen to stay in Neverland. Rowan was not happy coming back, although I don’t really understand why. I know he was upset about his past, his crew and his ship, but why be upset by coming to a world where you can get a fresh start. A fresh start with the girl you care about.

It felt like it ended too fast, like maybe there should have been another book so that the reader can understand more of the history of the fey and know who Gwen’s dad really was. Like I said, its a really good book, I highly recommend it, if you haven’t already, go buy it and read it!

 

Thank you so much for reading!

Transition Review!

First off, I would like to apologize to everyone for not putting a review out sooner. Next time, I will be on time!

Transition is such a great book if you really like vampires, and not the ones you’re used to. Paige Walker has given a new outlook on vampires.  The main character Nichole is relatable, as well as the attitude of her friends.

I found myself not able to put the book down, and I just had to keep reading. I wont lie, I was iffy due to it being a vampire book, but as I kept reading, I found that there’s more to the story than her just being a vampire. I felt that it explains more of the feeling that comes with being a vampire, and how each one feels different, and each person has their struggles.

The next little bit will be full of spoilers!!

So ill say this before I spoil things…

Go buy this book, it is a great book and I cant wait to read more from Paige Walker!

Last chance!

I  WARNED YOU!

So can we just talk about Aiden for a minute. I absolutely love him for some reason. I feel she’s a little too cold to him, and I understand how she’s feeling…but come on!

I wish I had a cool friend like Jade. I want her and her man to be together, but yet again, I understand that she is a vampire and he’s not.

Nate is oddly attractive to me… I love him as a “villain”

Casey and Tyler maybe could have had a thing going… I feel like maybe Tyler could have been the one to win her heart. He could break away from Nate and just be with Casey, just like Jade and Richard.

Anyway, I recommend this book, so if you get the chance, buy it!!

A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Reptile Room

Book two of this series, by Lemony Snicket, and so far, this is better than the first. The art work is great, Uncle Monty is my favorite!

*Spoilers in this blog*

So, the fact that everyone is oblivious to Count Olaf makes me love this book more. I know it must be frustrating for the Baudelaire children, but I find it quite amusing. The fact that it explains what sunny really means,  shows that she’s smart like her siblings, but is also still a baby.

Mr. Poe frustrates me. I can’t quite pin point it, but something about him makes me not like him.

The children know about all the reptiles, so proving the way Uncle Monty was killed couldn’t have been the snake it was. I love the Incredibly Deadly Viper, I wish I had one!

This is an amazing series, I recommend it so far! Thanks for reading my review! 🙂

A series of unfortunate events: The bad beginning

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of unfortunate events is such an amazing book. I forgot how great it is, since it has been a few years since reading it last. I just love the little pictures at each chapter, and the books are aesthetically pleasing.

They way it is written with the explanation of words and the sarcasm makes it more interesting and gives you a better idea about how smart these kids really are.

I dislike Mr. Poe, I don’t like his coughing and he seems frustrating to be around. I love the children, and I know Count Olaf is a villain, but i love how full of himself he is, and how mysterious he is!

*SPOLIERS AHEAD*

 

I warned you!!

 

The marvelous marriage was a brilliant idea, I would have never thought to do that! it shows how smart Count Olaf is. The kids were able to out smart him, but the idea of legally marrying Violet to get the money was pretty interesting.

I will be reading the whole series over the next few months, so I will be able to do reviews about each one.

Thanks for reading 🙂

I actually did spoil it for myself, there were pictures online, but I hope they are not real!

So I don’t want to see any more spoilers, and I’ll probably do a post about it tomorrow!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Mother’s Day! 💕
