Quitting my stories in my blog!

Hey every body as you can see by the title i am quitting my stories in my blog because i actually want to save the stories if i get to be a author. I f you were reading my stories then i am very sorry to quit it and thanks for reading it.

Review: The curious incident of the dog in the night time by Mark Haddon.

The curious incident of the dog in the night - time is a murder mystery novel like no other. The detective, and narrator is Christopher Boone. Christopher is fifteen and has Asperger's Syndrome. He knows a great deal about maths and very little about human beings. He loves lists, patterns and the truth. He hates the colours yellow and brown and being touched. He has never gone further than the end of the road on his own, but when he finds a neighbour's dog murdered he sets out on a terrifying journey which will turn his world upside down.

I am still taking the story into my system and i can't think anything else than that this book is brilliant. Just brilliant!

Christopher is a normal boy - well not really - he's writing this book himself. It starts with the dog. The dog is call Wellington and Wellington belongs to Miss shears. But when christopher starts to investigate Wellington's murder he finds out that his mother is . . . not dead but lives in London.

I'll say this again: THIS BOOK IS BRILLIANT!!!
And talk about the cover it just catches your eyes! 

And the plot itself and how it's laid out is just unique. The chapters numbers are not in order but in prime numbers (in order) because as you know Christopher loves maths. Plus, the way that the author has wrote the book doesn't even sound as if he is writing. To me it just sounds as if christopher is writing it. I think Mark (the author) has made it easy to understand Christopher as if he is a real person and not made up because in the book it says exactly what Christopher feels like. In addition to that you can see what Christopher sees  because of the pictures and diagrams.

Over all i think this book is brilliant and brilliant and brilliant!

My rating:

One of the most brilliant book in the world. Read it if you haven't because you really don't want to miss this book for anything.

Old and new readings.

Hey. OK i don't know how to start this but yeah i will just write what i need to write in this post.
So, i just thought about books and then this idea came to me. Because my house is stacked with books of all genres, i don't even know some of them. Anyway, there are some interesting books in my house and they are:

The curious incident of the dog in the night - time
 by Mark Haddon.
My sowrdhand is singing
by Marcus Sedwick.

Bad blood
by Rhiannon Lassiter.

I will give my reviews for these books even though i think that most people have already read these books.

Review: Matched by Ally Condie.


In Cassia's society, Officials decide who people love.
How many children they have.
Where they work.
When they die.

But, as Cassia finds herself falling in love with another boy,
she is determined to make some choices of her own.

And that's when her whole world
begins to unravel...

From goodreads.

Cassia is just a normal girl in the province and now she's gong to know her match. People get matched in the province by their taste and personality and there is no way that the province is going to make a mistake in the match but they have. When Cassia sees Ky on her match microchip she starts to worry however the province comes tells Cassia that someone was making a  joke and tells her something else. Something secret. Something secret about . . . Ky. Ky is an aberration. When Cassia find out about this she's curious and Ky keeps on appearing where Cassia goes but now Cassia has her own secret. When her grandpa is about to die he gives her two poems. But Cassia can't read the poems near anyone. when she decides to read it on the hill someone sees her and it's Ky. Now that Ky has seen Cassia they get along as friends. Except when their feelings unravel for each other thee want to be more than just friends. Will any one guess that they are more than friends if they do what will happen?

Wow this book was amazing it made my heart race, feel sorry for Cassia and people who live in the province and i even cried. I mean i cried. Yep cried. It was so sad when Cassia's grandpa died. 

I loved this story it was very catchy and you always think that Cassia is going to get caught. I loved Cassia's character; she is strong, hell, even stronger than me. If one of my grandpa died i would cry my eyes out but she didn't. She held it in. I also feel sorry for her because she lives in a world that people chooses for her and that's not fair. Yeah, talk about life's not fair. Another character i feel sorry for is Ky because his past is so devastating.

Once again i loved it. I am looking forward to the other book: Crossed

Review: firelight by sophie jordan.

A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.

With her rare ability to breathe fire, Jacinda is special among the draki - the descendants of dragons with the power to shift into human form.

But when Jacinda's rebelliousness forces her family to flee to the human world, her draki spirit  starts to fade. If it is lost , she will remain as a human. The only thing that revives it is gorgeous, elusive Will . . . whose family hunts her kind.

Jacinda can't resist getting closer to him. Even if it means risking the draki's most closely guarded secret - and her life.

This book caught my attention when i first saw the cover because there has never been a girl with sales on the face. It was interesting so i read the blurb and it took my breath away. I mean who is not interested in books with dragons and some romance to read. Well in my view i think it's brilliant because i have never seen a young adult book involving dragons. Jacinda is a very out of the ordinary girl in a reality world even in her own world. She is special. She's a fir-breather. The only one, in fact Jacinda is the only fire-breather generations. But now that she has gone over the line for trouble her family has to go to the where the humans live but if a draki goes where the human live th ewill lose their draki side if they stay too long; For their whole life and that's what Jacinda's mother wants. Especially f you start in the middle of the desert. Where it's always hot, yo can't get fresh air and you can't even fly. However Jacinda is lucky or rather domed. She can see her life Saviour. Will. Every time Jacinda get's near Will she can't control her draki side and her emotions. Even though Will and his family hunt Jacinda's kind.

OK. The plot was great! You couldn't understand the first few chapters but soon enough you could get the hang of it. Every time you tun the pages you think you are going to get the shock of your life it was as if you were in placed as Jacinda. Although the ending was ended in a cliff hanger the ending was excellent it made you want more of it and make you want to read the next book already.

 will just end this review by saying that this book i will share with you. If you love paranormal romance but want something different than vampires and werewolves then this. Then get this book and make it your next read!

When i wake up the sun is already up. After staring at the blank wall for a while i go to get a shower.
     When i get out of the shower my room is cleaned and strangely there is a school uniform and a little bag next to it. Then i remember the letter, That i had got yesterday.
      I get dressed then see my self in the mirror. The uniform is cute and looks expensive on me but it doesn't suit me because i am not cute and i don't even have a penny on me as far as i know.I sigh then suddenly there's a knock on the door. I jump. There's a knock on the door again. I walk to the door and open it. At first i don't see anything but then i see a shadow in he dark. I don't know what to do but move . . . but i can't. My body just doesn't listen to my command. I can't hear it move but it's definitely moving, towards me. Slowly and swiftly. I try to scream but when i open my mouth nothing comes out. Suddenly the shadow stops moving. "Is there anything wrong, mistress?" It steps forward again. Then I see it properly. It's not a shadow or a monster but a person. He's got wrinkles on his face, brown eyes, silver hair, he is wearing a plain black tailor coat and trousers, he's got a pocket watch in his top pocket on his chest, he is wearing white gloves and he is wearing those pointy shoes. He looks about in his 70s. "Is there anything wrong, mistress?" He repeats again. I say nothing and he takes it as if i don't want to and says: " i see that you are dressed and ready to go to school, so please follow me, mistress; to the dining hall" ans as he says the last word he turns and walk away.

But when Cammie wakes up in an alpine convent and discovers months have passed, she must face the fact that her memory is now a black hole.  The only traces left of Cammie’s summer vacation are the bruises on her body and dirt under her nails, and all she wants is to go home.

Review: Heist Society by Ally Carter.

Well here's my first review in this blog, hope you enjoy it!

Kat's no ordinary thief...

Kat's go a deadline-two weeks to pull off the biggest heist in history...

When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her to the case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie travelled to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own - scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. But now her dad's life is on the line, and Kat must go back to the world she tried so hard to escape...

“My say”

What to say? One word: AWESOME! This new series done by Ally Carter has taken my breath away. When i started to read the first chapter i was already hooked on. The whole story was perfect and when i mean perfect it's perfect!

Katarina Bishop is a thief, although if you want it more specific, she's a daughter of a master thief and she's been trained since she was three. But now she has to put her family, friends and herself on the line to save her dad, she needs a plan to get her father away from Arturo Taccone's sight, but the thing is if she wants to get her father away from Arturo Taccone's sight she has to get his paintings back which are guarded by the best of the best and security which is the best of the best 

The characters in this book, i loved. Katarina the most (of course) she's beautiful and elegant but at the same time feisty. And Hale, Hale he's just perfect. I was inerested the way their "friend ship" took place and i also want to know how they met it's all mysterious. Gabrielle, Kat's sexy annoying, cousin got on my nerves, but sometimes she was thoughtful and kind. I thought that was really kind of her.

The whole plot was brilliant first thing you know you're all calm and reading and then when it comes to the action you notice that your heartbeat is even more faster and your breathing is harsher. I mean who doesn't like a story packed with action, romance, humour, high-tech gadgets and best of all you're a fifteen year old thief, a professional thief on top of everything else.

Over all i think it was packed with action, good characters and a great plot. Even though Kat's a fifteen year old girl and already with a dangerous and highly death rate life plus she's a thief. This book is a easy read you wouldn't even notice the time that will go by. I hope you enjoy this book as i do!

My rating:

This story is packed with things that you wouldn't think in your whole life. It's fun to read and the pages will fly by as you are reading. If you love mystery, romance and action filled books then this is for you!
