Across the Universe

Heyyyy. I went to the pool today for the first time since last year! It was sooo much fun!
But now back to the books... I finished Across the Universe by Beth Revis, it was sooo good!!! So here's the review. I think I'm gonna start using the actual books summaries instead of writing my own...

Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.
Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone-one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship-tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.
Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there's only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.
Well first of all, this summary was soooooooo much more confusing than the actual book, so don't be fooled! This book was absolutely amazing. It captured me from the beginning and kept me throughout the whole thing! The plot was so completely unique and infecting, I couldn't stop reading! The way the book was written was amazing too, it wasn't too serious or too cheerful, it was just write for the book. Amy is such an amazing character. She was so determined and even though things went completely, and I mean completely wrong, she kept her head held high and found a way to make things better.
Then there's Elder. And Elder was awesomeeee. He was basically the only person on the ship that had been there from the start and yet deep down, he knew what was going on wasn't right. And once Amy came along, he didn't hold back, he made sure that people knew what he was standing up for. And in the end it payed off. The beginning of the book was really good, the middle a little muggy, but still good! And the end was amazing, it was something I never saw coming. So overall, I loved it!

Hi guys! I'm like in a really good mood right now because I just finished a track meet and did good :), soooo yeah. Anyways, I recently (like two weeks ago) bought You Wish by Mandy Hubbard and Specials by Scott Westerfield and so here's the review for Specials: (btw this is not my own summary)

The words have sent chills down Tally's spine since her days as a repellent, rebellious ugly. Back then Specials were a sinister rumor — frighteningly beautiful, dangerously strong, breathtakingly fast. Ordinary pretties might live their whole lives without meeting a Special. But Tally's never been ordinary.
And now she's been turned into one of them: a superamped fighting machine, engineered to keep the uglies down and the pretties stupid.
The strength, the speed, and the clarity and focus of her thinking feel better than anything Tally can remember. Most of the time. One tiny corner of her heart still remembers something more.
Still, it's easy to tune that out — until Tally's offered a chance to stamp out the rebels of the New Smoke permanently. It all comes down to one last choice: listen to that tiny, faint heartbeat, or carry out the mission she's programmed to complete. Either way, Tally's world will never be the same.
This book was sooo much better than the last two, plus it had a good ending! It had the excitement and the twists and the stupid mistakes that characters always make in books but it only makes the book better. It was a little sad, in the end, but I knew someone had to end up dying. It amazed me how Tally still had a hint of her ugly self even though her brain had been completely changed and she was barely even herself anymore. I also loved how the book went to places I'd never imagined it could go, the things that went wrong only added to the greatness of the book. A little slow in the beginning, but then again, I always say that. LOVED the ending! And overall, this book was amazingg! Again, I say that a lot too. If you haven't read this book, READ IT, and if you have, well, read it again!

You Wish

Hola!!! Guess what I just read??? You Wish by Mandy Hubbard! I love this book soooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was just as funny and amazing as Mandy's previous book, Prada and Prejudice. So here's the review for this awesome book.
Kayla is having the worst 16th birthday party ever. Her mom isn't paying attention to her, her best friend Nicole isn't there, and her arch-nemesis Janae is there. Once Kayla makes a wish and blows out her 16 candles, everything changes.
The next day, there's gumballs everywhere in her room. The day after, she finds a pink pony in her backyard. Day after day, something strange happens until Kayla realizes that all her wishes have been coming true. From when she was 4 to when she was 16. At first things are fine, but then Kayla realizes that when she 15, she wished for Ben Mackenzie to kiss her. And Ben Mackenzie is her best friend's boyfriend. Now Kayla has to go everyday enduring another wish, and hope that her crush, Ben, doesn't decide to kiss her that day.
This book was so good I couldn't set it down. It totally took a different direction than I had expected it to. All of Kayla's wishes were so funny and interesting. I was never bored, in fact, I was dying to read on and on to see what happened to Kayla. The book had such a lively and humorous tone to it, which I enjoyed a lot, and it definitely captured me from the very first page. The plot was amazing, the characters hilarious, and the whole book was just awesome. I think everyone should read this book!

Wow, I haven't been on here in forever, have I??? Well, I did just finish Pretties by Scott Westerfield! So here's the review.
Tally Youngblood is finally a pretty. Everything around her is bubbly and life is totally amazing. She has her best friend, Shay, and her boyfriend. What could go wrong?
Things changed in Tally's life when she finds a letter addressed to her and written from her which said that being a pretty wasn't all that good. No, being a pretty gives you brain damage, it kills you from the inside. Tally doesn't want to believe it, but there she is, her ugly self, writing a letter to her pretty self saying that she should take the two pills that give you the cure. Once Tally and her boyfriend take the pills, everything changes. It's no longer "bubbly" to be a pretty. It's an absolute lie. Being pretty was never safe. Now Tally has to make a choice, stay in Pretty Town and believe that nothing is wrong, or run away and go back to the Smokies,
      and save the life of all pretties.
This book was sooooo good! I liked it a lot! I'd already read the first book, Uglies, which was good too but it was such a long time ago I don't really remember much about it. I was hoping that everything would be solved by the end of the book, but I guess that can't happen since there's two more books in the series. The book was really interesting and captured you from the very beginning. There was a lot of things I didn't expect to happen and left my mouth hanging open. I can't wait to read the next book!
Tally was so independent and caring about all her friends. She ran into so much trouble and made a lot of mistakes but still, through all that she only became a better person. Now that's a lot of character development. Overall, if you have or even haven't read any Scott Westerfield, this book would be a good read for you!
