Summary

Aspiring choreographer Sophie Orenstein would do anything for Peter Rosenthal-Porter, who’s been on the kidney transplant list as long as she’s known him. Peter, a gifted pianist, is everything to Sophie: best friend, musical collaborator, secret crush. When she learns she’s a match, donating a kidney is an easy, obvious choice. She can’t help wondering if after the transplant, he’ll love her back the way she’s always wanted.

But Peter’s life post-transplant isn’t what either of them expected. Though he once had feelings for Sophie too, he’s now drawn to Chase, the guitarist in a band that happens to be looking for a keyboardist. And while neglected parts of Sophie’s world are calling to her—dance opportunities, new friends, a sister and niece she barely knows—she longs for a now-distant Peter more than ever, growing increasingly bitter he doesn’t seem to feel the same connection.

Peter fears he’ll forever be indebted to her. Sophie isn’t sure who she is without him. Then one blurry, heartbreaking night twists their relationship into something neither of them recognizes, leading them to question their past, their future, and whether their friendship is even worth fighting for.

20 things i’ve learned since turning 20

woah happy 20th birthday to me!!

it’s a little bit past day of, but 20 still feels kind of momentous, no? it’s a little bit different than age 16 or 18, though, where i felt the effect of aging almost immediately when waking up. the world looked a little brighter, i felt a little more grown, it was a good time! maybe it was just finally being able to get a permit and vote, though HAH.

even though 20 isn’t an age that comes with the gift of new responsibilities (like buying alc huehue catch me in a year), 20 still feels old. i’m no longer a teenager, and i’m fully stepping into a new decade of my life. what i’m grateful for, though, is that i happened to turn 20 over break. i’m currently spending my thanksgiving break at my university, where the large majority of people are at home for the holidays. i’m chilling out here, pretty much alone give or take a few meet-ups with friends, but it’s… really nice to be able to ruminate on my thoughts and goals and ambitions for the next decade by myself. too often, going to a huge university, it’s really hard to find time to let my full introvert come out, and i make do with the few moments of solitude i can scrape together between classes and during meals.

that being said, i have a lot of thoughts and a lot of goals for myself after having an entire afternoon to myself and i’m ready to share on my lil diary-blog. (more…)

Top Ten Tuesday: Hype, Hype, Hype (Oh And I Still Haven’t Read It)

50ab0-toptentuesday
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday, participating book bloggers blog about their top ten lists.

This Week’s Topic: Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read


I’m fairly bad with keeping up on hyped books. I can safely say that I’m trying to catch up with reading hyped books and popular series but well… I’m trying. In fact, reading these somewhat hyped books is one of the things I’m trying to do this summer.

And yeah I don’t have super pretty book pictures but I do have two of the books on this list. That means I can actually take relevant book pictures and put this in my post. YAY! *Blows confetti everywhere*

Displaying 20150706_152017.jpg

And yeah two of those books aren’t on this list but they are equally as hyped and yeah I still haven’t read them…. I have tried picking up Shadow and Bone though! It just wasn’t the right time for me to pick it up. I’m a mood reader, okay? You can also see the mess that is my room in the background. It’s also really awkward trying to take a picture when you’re also listening to a song called Porn Star in the background and half leaning against a wall. Thank you, August Alsina for making a song that is simultaneously super chill and super explicit.

And sorry for reposting this. I had to go into the code to fix the formatting so it wasn’t like reading the whole thing in caps lock >.<


  1.  The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
    I’ve read both Shiver and The Scorpio Races but I have yet to pick up the fan favorite, The Raven Boys. Part of it is laziness because I haven’t put a hold on it at the library but there’s also the fact that my friend wasn’t a huge fan and that scares me. I don’t always like being the black sheep.
  2.  Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang
    First, I wanna say that I actually have a friend with the same first and last name as the author! And I’ve heard really good things about this teen author and how her book has well written characters. I love good characters.
  3.  All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
    Well my friend read it before the hype really set in but now I’m seeing this book everywhere because it won the Pulitzer. Even people at my school that don’t really read all that much have talked about this book. I have a pretty good feeling about it.
  4.  The Giver (and the rest of the series) by Lois Lowry
    Movie came out last year and everybody went to see it (probably because of Taylor Swift to be honest) and I’m still sitting over here refusing to watch it because I haven’t read the book. I have a gorgeous gray and red bind-up of all 4 books so I don’t know why I haven’t read it.
  5.  If I Stay by Gayle Forman
    Same as above. Except there’s the fact that I actually read Just One Day and I didn’t like it.
  6.  The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
    One of my friends is convinced that I will love this book if I read it. Of course I still haven’t so that shows you how much peer pressure works on me when it comes to books.
  7.  This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
    This one hasn’t had huge hype but it has a lot of… ninja hype? What I mean is that even if it’s not the most hyped book (as of now), I’ve seen people briefly mention it on blogs and social media and it’s done enough to really pique my interest. I see this book everywhere.
  8.  Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas
    Same as above. Especially last year when the companion/sequel/sister novel, Dangerous Girls released.
  9.  Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
    Actually, you can just put all of Hoover’s books here because I swear I see her everywhere.
  10.  Splintered by A.G. Howard
    People at school have read it and there’s a few bloggers that repeatedly mention this book.
  11.  An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
    I was going to end the list before I realized that this is quite possibly the most hyped book of early 2015. And yeah. I still haven’t read it.

And that’s my list! Is there anything I’ve missed? Tell me about any of your favorite hyped books that I (probably) haven’t read yet! Or if I have read it, let’s talk! 🙂

Summary

Perfect for fans of Nicholas Sparks, this breathtaking story of love and loss is guaranteed to break your heart and sweep you off your feet.
When high school senior Kelsey’s identical twin sister, Michelle, dies in a car crash, Kelsey is left without her other half. The only person who doesn’t know about the tragedy is Michelle’s boyfriend, Peter, recently deployed to Afghanistan. But when Kelsey finally connects with Peter online, she can’t bear to tell him the truth. Active duty has taken its toll, and Peter, thinking that Kelsey is Michelle, says that seeing her is the one thing keeping him alive. Caught up in the moment, Kelsey has no choice: She lets Peter believe that she is her sister.
As Kelsey keeps up the act, she crosses the line from pretend to real. Soon, Kelsey can’t deny that she’s falling, hard, for the one boy she shouldn’t want.

Life of a Blogger: Goals and Dreams

Honestly, I don’t really know what I want to do with my future yet. I’m pretty fickle so far because I don’t know what it is I really have a passion for. I do have some definite goals that I want to achieve although most of them are academic goals.

Academically, I want to be able to manage straight A’s throughout high school and as close to a 98% as possible. I might not end up going to an Ivy League college but I want to at least be able to give myself the chance to get in if I want to. For the AP classes I’m taking, I want to try to get a 4-5 on the AP test. It’s going to require extensive studying but I’m going to try my best to do it.

Clearly I want to get into an out-of-state college and graduate but  I still have no idea what I’m going to major in. Maybe something medical? An anesthesiologist or psychiatrist sounds cool but I’m not sure if I’m cut out for it. Other days I wonder if I could be a celebrity. It keeps changing.

As for other goals, I want to move up to the third level of orchestra for the next school year. I want to improve my piano skills and find a way to increase the amount I dance. Drink more water and go to sleep earlier.

I would include blog goals but I already made a post about it earlier this year. To summarize, I want to increase variety on my blog, read a larger amount of genres, schedule earlier, etc. See the original post here.

I dream of the day when I can learn hip-hop. Because I can’t find classes where I live. They might be around here somewhere but I can’t find them.

I dream of being able to sleep enough on a daily basis. It’s a futile goal I’m working on.

This is quite possibly the cheesiest thing ever but I do wish to fall in love one day. I don’t really dream about it; I have better things to do. But after reading so many cheesy love stories, it’s something I hope will happen.

I have a bucket list of things I want to do… but none of them are actually “dreams”. They include stuff like travel and cool things that I’d want to be able to do. I’d include it but if I don’t complete some of the things on the list, it’s not going to be the end of the world.

What are some things that you dream of doing? What goals have you set?

Blog Update [2]

Hey guys!

I know I haven’t been posting very many reviews lately. I have been reading a lot but I haven’t had time to review them. I have a couple half-written but they aren’t my best work.

So here’s what my plan is.

I will pick a few of the books and write full length reviews. For the rest, I will write a big post with mini-reviews. I’m 8 books behind on reviewing so I’m thinking I’ll do a ratio of 4-4 or 5-3. For the books that have half-written reviews, I will try to finish and improve them.

I posted my reviews of The Pandora Chronicles: Book 1 and The 5th Wave last Friday.

It depends on what I have time to write. And it’ll be quite difficult for me because the end of the semester is close and finals are going to kill me. I’ll try my best though!

Also, my birthday recently passed, so I will also make a post about the bookish and non-bookish things I received. It will also include a Stacking the Shelves tag and the items I received from my Secret Santa! I received my package a few days ago and I feel so thankful for what she gave me.

I’ll also be making a post about the gift I’m sending to my person/victim/receiver/idk. While I won’t be showing the gifts I got, I will talk about the process of shopping and such. I have yet to mail my package but I will. I swear it’s not because I’ve forgotten. It’s just that life has been a little hectic recently.

Blog Update

Blog Update

Hey guys! I’ve kind of abandoned the “blog about my life” part of this blog and I kind of want to revive it. My original want for this blog was for it to be a lifestyle/book/everything blog where I could pretty much talk about anything I wanted to. Obviously, it ended up deviating towards the book part which isn’t a bad thing, but I’m thinking about making my life-blogging more of a weekly thing.

Anyways, I know I’ve been kind of absent in the past few weeks. I know I post stuff every now and then, but having twoish posts a week is NOT okay in my book. I feel bad if I don’t post anything after three days (which has happened many times sorry!). What I feel especially bad about is that the lack of reviews isn’t because I haven’t had time to read. It’s because I finish them and then I don’t review them. I like to think about my opinion for at least a day before posting because sometimes I’m blinded by feels or hate and can’t make a really good review. I don’t think anybody wants to read a review where I’m keyboard smashing about how much I loved a book if said book has some errors that can affected the overall rating.

And I know that I did pretty good this week in terms of posts, but what I’m talking about is my bad habit of having some really good posts one week, but then having like one post the next. CONSISTENCY IS KEY.

Well because of that, I have a queue of like five books I need to review which is a problem because I should really return them to the library because book hoarding is not healthy. But then I don’t want to return them because well.. I need to review them. So yeah this is something that’s been gnawing at my conscience lately. If you’re interested, those books are Noggin, Don’t Look Back, Across the Universe, Saving Francesca, and The Blood of Olympus.

In other news, I’ve been meaning to make a Stacking the Shelves post buuuuuut well I’m too lazy to actually arrange and take a picture of the ginormous stack of books I checked out from the library. It’ll go up eventually. Expect a post with like thirty books in it.

Part of the reason that I’ve been kind of slacking off is because well…. I kind of started to marathon the episodes of a kdrama this weekend. I was originally going to make this weekend a catch-up for my blog so I could finish up all those reviews. Well I started watching episode 11 of “My Love From the Stars” and that goal went flying out the window. Maybe I’ll write a review for it. But I’m going to make sure that I write it after I write those book reviews. (I’m halfway through a review for Saving Francesca)

*Coughs I finished the drama this weekend*

If you haven’t noticed, I get distracted really easily.

It’s the reason I don’t finish homework really quickly.

Book Meme Idea?

Book Meme Idea?

I figured that if I’m going to continue to do this book blogging thing, I should make my own book meme that sets me apart from the rest of the bloggers. I’m currently bouncing around ideas. I want something that’s going to be fun but I also want something that has substance. I don’t want to make an idea that’s flimsy or something that I can’t really talk about. There are a lot of different book memes out (Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post, Top Ten Tuesdays, etc) and I’m not sure if my idea has been done before, but I figured that I’d make a post about this because this came to me while I was thinking of posts to write for my English project.

Expectations Vs. Reality

Has a nice ring to it right?

Obviously, this isn’t a new concept at all (what with the bajillion memes and posts about it) and I’m really surprised I haven’t seen it done on other blogs. How many times, as readers, have we expected a book to be fantastic, only to have it flop? For me, far too many times to even begin to count.

So I have thought

up this little feature, which I think will be tons of fun (lots t-charts, lists, gifs, and me ranting). I will be comparing what my initial expectations of the book to what the book actually had or maybe what unreasonable expectations the book ends up giving me compared to real life. Just stuff like that

Guys I don’t know how many times I’ve wanted to read a book in a bath. Now that I’m older, I wouldn’t even try to bring my babies anywhere near water (not even the pool) so taking a bubble bath and reading a book is out of the question. 😦

By Title

A single asterick refers to a mini-review. Additionally, to make it easier to find, if the title begins with a “the” it is alphabetized by the second word.
