My Booksie Account

Hey guys! I hope everyone has been having a wonderful week, because I sure have! I'm having a great time relaxing this Spring Break, and I can't believe it's almost over. I just want more time to read and have fun. Anyways, I don't know if you guys know this about me or not, but I love to write novels, and I wrote one last year. So this year I'm starting on a new project. I'll post an excerpt of it on here, and if you guys want to read more, visit my Booksie account!
On Booksie I will post some other things I'm working on and you can read and comment and even follow me! I'd appreciate it if you guys went and visited it and left me some tips.
You can find my account under Destiny Fae, or just click here.
Here's the excerpt:


     Maybe it was chance. Or fate, or whatever the heck you wanna call it. Maybe it was just pure coincidence. Or maybe I’m just crazy enough to think it was anything at all. It could have been all those things, or maybe just one. But I’ll never know.
            And that’s probably the hardest part, never quite knowing what happened. All I have is the scattered pictures, tiny memories, and the still echoing thoughts of those days, swirling in my brain.
            It seems like a whole lifetime ago, maybe even longer. But the date is clearly marked on the calendar, exactly thirty one days ago. I sigh. I thought I could forget, not look back, think of everything that was ahead of me and leave everything that was behind.
            Turns out forgetting is easier said than done.

I have been waiting forever to review this book, because I absolutely love it. I can't believe that I have to wait a whole another year to read the next book, because I simply can't wait that long!
Book: Hallowed (Unearthly #2)
Author: Cynthia Hand
For months Clara Gardner trained to face the fire from her visions, but she wasn't prepared for the choice she had to make that day. And in the aftermath, she discovered that nothing about being part angel is as straightforward as she thought. Now, torn between her love for Tucker and her complicated feelings about the roles she and Christian seem destined to play in a world that is both dangerous and  beautiful, Clara struggles with a shocking revelation: Someone she loves will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning. In this compelling sequel to "Unearthly," Cynthia Hand captures the joy of first love, the anguish of loss, and the confusion of becoming who you are.
WOW. WOW WOW WOW. Wow times a million. 
I love this book so much. I don't think I can fit how much I loved this book into a tiny review. I could write a book about how much I loved this book. As you can see, I'm a little obsessed, and you should be too. 
I have been hotly anticipating Hallowed for just about a year now, and I had the greatest expectations. Well, I have to say then that my expectations were met. I'm so happy they were. I hate it when sequels don't do as good as their previous books. But don't worry, Hallowed wasn't one of those books! 
As usual, Cynthia Hand manages to deliver a spectacularly beautiful and charming book that fills up every aspect of a good read (Scratch that, an AMAZING READ). Clara was and still is one of my favorite main characters. She's insanely smart and always manages to make me smile, she's pretty much hilarious. That's one of my favorite things about Cynthia Hand's books, they are hilarious. Like make you crack up out loud in a quiet room hilarious. I adore those kinds of books. 
Oh and of course, there's another character I need to talk about. TUCKER. Tucker Avery, the most amazing, awesome, adorable, main character you will ever read about. Tucker was just as great in this book as the previous, and not to mention he was HOT! Sorry I sort of have a thing for cowboys. The only thing that nagged me was that we didn't get to know him as well as we did in the previous book, we didn't get to read as much about him. Instead we learned about a different character, who's name is not to be mentioned. But still, Tucker was amazing
Hallowed had a great plot line, one that made you think one thing but then a whole another thing happened. It was filled with great twists. I loved the depth of each one of the characters, it made you feel what they're feeling and actually care about them. I loved that. It made the book feel very real. 
One of the best parts of this book was the beautiful writing, the oh so beautiful writing. Not only in describing but just the tone and the things said. I actually cried a lot in this book because of that. Cynthia Hand manages to touch your heart with this book all the while keeping you intrigued and laughing along, and crying along too I guess. The pace of the book was just perfect, it was equally balanced and I felt as though everything in the book had a reason and it wasn't just the author blabbing on. Everything in this book was just great, and the ending was killer, I don't know if I can make it until next year. Overall, Hallowed exceeded Unearthly and I LOVED it. It was amazing!!! So if you're hesitating to read this book, I say, don't! Go read it now because you are missing out on a truly, truly amazing book!

Anna and the French Kiss

Hello fellow readers, I feel really bad for leaving you guys for so long! But the weekend is here, (and almost over, I might add) and I found myself some spare time to do some reviews. I've just been really busy with school and stuff, but now I'm here! I read Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins a while back and I LOVED it. Here's the review:
Book: Anna and the French Kiss
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.
As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?
I had been wanting to read this book for a long time, but I didn't think it'd be anything special. But let me just say, this book was special. It turned out to be an amazing, funny, beautiful read. The story grasped me from the very beginning, Anna's charm and humor made me never want to put the book down. And of course, St. Clair was amazing too. He was hilarious and such a nice guy. Plus, he felt real and not just another perfect fictional guy who tried too hard. He was just St. Clair, and he was amazing. The story's pacing was just right, I thought. I was never bored in the book, in fact I was so intrigued that I stayed up late on a school night. That says something right there. I know I've said this a lot, but seriously, this book is hilarious. Stephanie Perkins managed to make me laugh at every second in the book. But aside from the comedy, this book had a great plot line. And even though it seems like a boring story, it's not. It takes a great author to turn something that seems boring to something extraordinary. And Stephanie Perkins did just that. She made me fall in love with the book.
This might be a short review, but don't focus on that, just go and read the book!
