- Breaking the Agenda (The Garnet Trilogy - Book 2)
on Nov. 16, 2013
Breaking the Agenda was not what I expected AT ALL. In a good way? Yes.
Breaking the Agenda is the second book in the Garnet series. It's basically the story of Martie's mother, Magda. It starts off in the present and goes to the past to explain everything that has happened to her. I was expecting a continuation of Martie's adventure, but got the story of Magda instead.
Breaking the Agenda was interesting, but not exactly necessary to the series. I felt like I was reading one of those extra books that aren't actually a part of the series. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it a lot. I was really curious on the story of Magda while reading the first book, so Breaking the Agenda answered all my questions. At some point, I was kind of bored with the explaining, but realized it was necessary.
The ending? I almost peed myself. If I didn't get the third book in advance I probably would have died. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE THIRD BOOK BEFORE READING THE SECOND.
Overall, I would recommend Breaking the Agenda to readers who like YA, romance, and a teeny bit of SciFi. Breaking the Agenda was definitely worth reading and I'm up for reading it again.
- Sketch of Secrets (The Garnet Trilogy - Book 1)
on Nov. 18, 2013
Sketch of Secrets was an intriguing and fast paced book. I enjoyed it thoroughly and finished it very quick.
Sketch of Secrets is about a girl, Martie, who's mother disappears on her 17th birthday. Martie sets off to find her, but instead of finding her mom, she finds the boy of her dreams- literally. The two follow clues and unlock the secrets of her mom's past.
Sketch of Secrets was so fast paced I didn't realize I was almost done the book until I looked at the time. It took me no longer than a few days to finish it. I liked plot and the quickness of it, but a little part of me wished there was more explanations and character development. I was ALMOST bothered by the insta-love that Martie and Trew had, but they had a connection so I can see why they loved each other so easily. I also wished that I got to look more into Martie's feelings.
Overall, Sketch of Secrets was MORE than what I was expecting. I honestly was expecting some stupid story of an immature girl who can't solve a mystery for her life, but instead I received a plot twisting book. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys YA fiction, romance, fantasy, or mystery.
- Doorway to Home (The Garnet Trilogy - Book 3)
on Nov. 19, 2013
Doorway to Home was the best book out of the Garnet Trilogy. First, I loved how it was in Trew's point of view. Second, it had the perfect ending. And third, it was the most fast paced out of all three.
Doorway to Home is the last book of the Garnet Trilogy. It's a continuation of Trew and Martie's struggle to find her mother. When they find Magda, they are forced to stay. Will Trew's temptations get the best of him and cause him to leave his true love?
I loved everything about this book. The ending was absolutely PERFECT. I loved how Will Jemhart didn't exactly tell you the ending directly, but worked it in. The last sentence? LOVED IT. Gosh I am so going to reread this book.
I would recommend Doorway to Home to anyone who likes YA fiction, romance, and SciFi. READ IT. It's so worth it.

Ignite was a pretty easy read considering it was relatively short. It was quick and interesting. I enjoyed it a lot!
Ignite is basically about a girl (or so you think) who goes to a camp. Her "mortal enemy" Lochie ends up going too. A camper goes missing. What's going on and Camp Soho and could it be Amery's fault?
Some things I LOVE about Ignite was the fact that it wasn't packed with boring information. It got straight to the point. It had just enough information to keep you thinking, but not so much that it's boring. Anyone else really LOVE THE COVER? Cause I do. Ignite was REALLY good considering it's not what you say, ah, a popular book.
Cons (Yes, every book has a few)
The ending I feel was cut off at an awkward part. I feel like the second book (if there is one) could just be merged with this one to make one book. Also, one thing that bothered me was the fact that you KNOW for a fact that Lochie likes Amery and she's COMPLETELY oblivious to it. I'm not a fan of those kind of relationships.
OVERALL, Ignite was a pretty good book! It was DEFINITELY worth reading. I would recommend this book to readers that like YA fiction, Sci-Fi, and fantasy. If you need a short book (that's utterly amazing) to keep you busy, READ THIS.
- Drowning in Deception
on Dec. 02, 2013
I have no words. Drowning in Deception is my definition of a PERFECT dystopian novel. EVERY SINGLE THING ABOUT THIS BOOK WAS BRILLIANT. And also, who can resist reading a book with such a creative cover?
Drowning in Deception is about a girl you finds out that she isn't as "content" as her society wants her to be. She finds out the milk is drugged and that "monsters" on the other side of the protective wall are being abused. Can Clover gather enough people to save the clueless society and stop the abuse of the innocent people who are labeled monsters?
I loved everything about Drowning in Deception. The characters were well developed, the plot was unpredictable, and the ending was perfect. Maybe it's just because I'm a sucker for dystopian books, or maybe it's because Will Jemhart is an utterly fabulous writer. I honestly wasn't expecting much from Drowning in Deception, but instead I got a page turner. I harshly rate dystopian books because most aren't original. Drowning in Deception EARNED those five stars.
I would recommend this book to ALL READERS, especially ones who like dystopian, YA fiction, action, and purely terrific books. I wouldn't change ONE THING about this book. NOT ONLY WAS IT AMAZING, but Drowning in Deception had a satisfying ending. Out of all four books that I have read from Will Jemhart, this one is BY FAR my favorite.
Gosh dang it READ THIS BOOK. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
- Love and Skate
on Dec. 23, 2013
Love and Skate was a... how shall I put this... cute book. Yeah, adorable couple with broken pasts find love for each other, break up, and then get back together in the end.
I'll be honest, it wasn't a surprising book. I could predict every twist, every turn, and every wittle climax. And no, this is not good. This book got three whole stars because it was written pretty well. Lemme get this straight. The writing STYLE was pretty good. The plot? Not so much. I loved the characters though. Liked them a lot.
Overall I would recommend this book for readers looking for an easy, romantic, yet CLEAN read. I personally won't read this book again, but then again I was never a fan of sappy romances.
