Summary From Goodreads:
Being a Brownie in the fairy realm isn’t easy.
the daughter of the king Brownie is even harder, especially when you
are left to discover the other kingdoms on your own, not knowing who is
friend and who is foe.
Thea makes the wrong choice and flees to the human realm, her home in ruin.
There she meets a Guardian, Hades and a hellhound.
Will she be able to return home and right the wrongs she caused?
This was such a fun and
interesting story! It's also a very quick read, so it's easy to read
when you only have a short amount of reading time. I liked the fact that
it was a spin-off for Thea, and you really get to learn more about your
favorite Brownie. I hope we get more novellas like this one in the
future, because I like when I get to learn more about other characters
than just the main ones

Summary From Goodreads:
Terra Materson knew moving to Atchison College would take some getting used to. But she didn’t expect to discover she had the spirit of an ancient goddess inside her.
It’s a lot to process. Not to mention the four overprotective guys who have made it their mission to take Terra under their wing. But as her connection to Ross, Cael, Endo, and Sol intensifies, so too does her need for the truth.
Her protectors want to keep her safe. The witches need her power. And her new friends just want her to live a little. But as her hidden memories slowly return, Terra is left questioning who she can trust. Because with magic in the air, anyone could be an enemy and nothing may be as it seems...
Coveted is the second book in The Gaia Chronicles, an urban fantasy reverse harem series, and must be read after book #1: Cursed. Recommended for readers 17+
Terra does a lot more growing up in this book. But she also struggles a lot with who she is. She's having a hard time trying to sort out how she feels about everything that is happening. And she also is having kind of an existential crisis because she doesn't know if the guys like her for her, or if they like her because she's Gaia's reincarnation.
So she's trying to figure that out. But on the other hand, I feel like she's dealing with things much better than I would have. Honestly, I'd be freaking out. She's such a strong character. And I find the fact that she does things after the guys tell her not to extremely amusing. I'm like HA! You go Terra!
I think the author does a good job at throwing in an element of mystery with everything else that is going on. What is the mysterious force that Terra keeps sensing? Who is it that is always after her? What are the guys still hiding from her? It's fun to try and figure those things out with Terra and the others.
I liked getting to see her relationship with the boys grow. And watching her create a connection with each of them. Even the douche bag Sol (JK, I kinda love him). Though I think I would have been a bit more forceful and demand to know answers, because I HATE being kept in the dark about things, because I hate being taken off guard.
There were a few plot twists that I did not see coming, and I'm torn between being in denial about who the culprit is and going AH HA! I knew there was something sketchy about *Spoiler Removed*!
I have a love/hate relationship with the way this book and the last one ended. I love it, because it builds up to a big ending, and then leaves you with a million questions, and makes you definitely want the next book ASAP. But I also kind of hate it, because then WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WHILE I WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK?! Ha ha, anyways.
I'm so glad I got a chance to read this book, and I can't wait for the next one!

Rules of Rain By Leah Scheier My Rating: 3 Stars Publication Date: December 5th, 2017 Date Read: February 2018 Audiobook 9 hours 22 minutes
Summary From Goodreads
A dramatic new novel about the bond between a teen and her twin brother.
has taken care of Ethan all of her life. Before she even knew what
autism meant, she's been her twin brother's connection to the hostile
world around him. She's always prepared—when her father abandons them,
when her mother gets sick, when Ethan is tortured by bullies from
school—Rain is the reliable, stable one holding them all together. She's
both cautious carer and mad chef, preparing customized meals for her
family and posting crazy recipes on her cooking blog.
with Ethan is unvarying and predictable, and she's sure that nothing
will ever change—until one night when her world is turned upside down by
a mistake she can't take back. As her new romance with her long-time
crush and her carefully constructed life begins to unravel, she
discovers that the fragile brother whom she's always protected has grown
into a young man who no longer needs her. And now, for the first time,
she finds that she needs him.
I feel like this review is going to be a repeat of what
everyone else has been saying about it... But here goes. There also may or may not be spoilers ahead, so proceed with caution if you haven't actually read the book yet.
I thought Rain was annoying at times, but then during
others, I really could see where she was coming from. Now, don't get me wrong,
I'm not saying that her trying to "fix" Ethan is okay because he's perfect the way he is, and yes, she was selfish
at times, and then there were the times when she thought about how she wished
that she had things that she wanted to do that were separate from Ethan.
But I think we all need to remember that Rain is, what?
17?you can't honestly tell me that
there are any 17 year olds who aren't selfish brats from time to time. Teenagers do/say/think things they don't really mean all the time. And if you're saying that you didn't and no one you know has, then you're lying.
And you can just stop right there, because I am NOT
condoning it, or saying that the way she handled certain situations was okay,
because it wasn't. I'm just pointing out the fact that she's a teenager, so
maybe people should stop being so harsh on her
She does grow up throughout the book. It's a slow process,
but it happens. She stops trying to control and fix everything.
If you want to talk about how immature people were, I’d like
to point fingers at their mother. Even though she was originally portrayed as
“the good parent” I had issues with her. How she refuses to accept the fact
that Ethan is autistic. Instead of trying to focus on all the good and positive
things with Ethan, and encouraging him, she just didn’t… I know the dad was the
one who was “out of the picture” and he cheated on the mom and fell in love
with someone else. But, he was way more supportive of Ethan and Rain. He talked to them, he
encouraged them to follow their dreams. He was the one who helped Ethan go
outside of his comfort zone, and he was all for Rain going away on their own
little adventure. Again, I’m not saying that his cheating was okay, but for all
the bad things that he did, he was still way more supportive of his children. Their parents--their mom more specifically-- set them up to fail from the start.
I loved Ethan, okay. He was just so adorable, and I loved
everything about him. I don’t have Autism, so I have no idea if that’s
portrayed well or correctly, but I know that I really liked his character. He
tried so hard throughout the whole book. He was just so… I don’t know,
authentic. And sweet. And I really enjoyed getting to read his journal
entries.All of his Ethan-isms made my
heart smile. His character is what made the story.
BIG SPOILER ALERT BIG SPOILER ALERT
I was so confused by the whole Rain was pregnant for a
minute thing. That was weird. And I don’t think that it was really important to
the story. Other than just to prove once again how amazing Ethan is (because without him, Rain probably would have died)
END OF THE BIG SPOILER ALERT
though there still may be more little ones coming
I liked Rain and Liam's relationship, and I was so sad when they broke up. Like, it actually hurt my heart. They were so cute together. They had their moments of awkwardness and uncertainty, and those imperfections are what made them so cute together. I'm a big fan of the HEA, and yes, I know, you don't need to have a significant other to be happy, but I for sure wanted them to be together. Liam was good for Rain.
Hope was a fantastic friend, even if she was a little overzealous at times. She always jumped without thinking, and sometimes it worked for her, and sometimes she needed to backpedal herself out real fast. She was so supportive of Ethan and Rain, and I liked how she told Rain that she knew Rain was jealous about her spending time with Ethan, and that's why she backed off for a little bit. To give Rain and Ethan time to figure things out.
I also love love loved the "Secret Rule" that actually melted my heart and made me tear up a little bit. It's the most wonderful thing I've read about in my entire life.
"I said the phrase once just to see his reaction," she muses. "Secret Rule. He looked confused at first, but then he replied immediately, like it was part of a script. 'What can I do?' I didn't understand, so I asked him what he meant."
"He was asking, 'what can I do to make you happy?'" I conclude softly.
"Yes," she says. "It was so sweet. Like an algorithm for showing love." --Rules of Rain pages 343-344
Right? isn't that just the most heart melting thing you've read? There are still a lot of things that are said after this, that would make it make more sense, but you get the general idea of what;s going on.
But yes, this book is definitely worth a read. So what are you waiting for? Go get it!!

Summary From Goodreads:
Is it her destiny to save them … or destroy them?
that Tori finally understands who she is and what’s expected of her,
she’s in full-on freak-out mode. How will she save the galaxy from
General Arantu’s clutches when she can’t even control her powers?
that to the lack of retaliation by enemy alien forces, and everyone is
on edge. Especially when they uncover evidence of a strange alien symbol
with possible links to humans, and the mystery deepens, along with
But that’s not the only thing keeping Tori awake at night.
over the horrific vision she experienced the night of the Herassan
attack, Tori is terrified of revealing details of her protectors’
supposed fate, so she says nothing. Keeping stuff hidden never ends
well, and as evil forces conspire against Tori and her four protectors,
secrets and lies threaten to destroy everything they hope to achieve.
While Tori grows closer to Coop, Maddox, and Beck, Dane remains distant,
creating more tension and jeopardizing their bond.
Then an unexpected newcomer arrives, casting suspicion over everything they believe they know.
When Tori finally figures out what’s going on, will she have time to warn the guys? Or is their fate already sealed?
I was super stoked when I was able to get my hands on a copy of this book, especially with the way that the last one ended. Like, I've been really anxious to find out what was going to happen next!
And I just...
I think I'm still processing my feelings!
I read through this one at lightning speed, because that's how excited I was to be able to read this.
This book starts up literally right after where the second one left off, and Tori is feeling sorry for herself, and blaming herself for what happened to you know who. And right away, I just wanted to shake her and say "GET A HOLD OF YOURSELF!!" which she did, eventually.
There was so much world building and character building in this book, which I absolutely love. I like getting to see book characters grow up and progress from being unsure and insecure about who they are, to kick @$$ characters who won't take crap from anyone.
I loved getting to see Tori spend more time with her guys, and seeing their relationships grow closer, it totally made me smile. I love all the guys, but my favorite is still Beckett (because I usually go for the cute nerdy ones, lol)
There were surprises in this book, some that I expected and others that I absolutely did not.
This was a fantastic continuation to the Alinthia series, and I'm very very very much looking forward to the next book, especially since this one ended with a cliffhanger *SIGHS* authors are trying to kill me with cliffhangers, I swear.
If you've read and enjoyed the first one, then you should definitely continue on with the series. Or if you love a good SciFi book packed with action, romance, and mystery, then this is the series for you!

Summary From Goodreads
Juliette Ferrars thought she'd won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she's still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she's got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?
So. Okay. You guys. I am NOT okay right now. This book... I
loved it so terribly much, but it... it DESTROYED me. I'm just. Oh lord.
Okay, let's see if I can make any sense of my words, which are jumbled in my
head right now, because I haven't fully processed what I read.
*Deep Breath In*
Here we go
There will probably definitely be spoilers. Who knows what's going to
come out of my mouth, because I'm in a very fragile state right now, and very
prone to rambling, not to mention the fact that I have feelings and thoughts
that I need to get off my chest. So. If you haven't read this one yet, or any
of them at all, then you might not probably want to continue reading this
review. Also, this will probably be one of the longest posts I've had on here,
because of all the rambling I'm about to do
First, a little backstory before the actual review
So let me start off by saying that I bought this book on it's release day.
Like, moderately early in the day. But I had to wait a freaking half an hour,
because the only bookstore in my town didn't even have them out on the shelf
yet. Excuse me? What? As the only bookstore in town I felt like they should
have been better prepared, but no. They had to search all over Hell's Half Acre
to find it for me.
And then I didn't even get to read it right away. Because I had a midterm to
take and then I had to go to work and adult. Boooo (I'm mostly kidding, because
I love my job.) So on my dinner break, I made a pretty good size dent in it. I
had an hour to eat and made it about 25 percent through the book. Not too bad.
I was so fidgety afterwards though, because the part I left on, was the part
where Castle is telling Warner the truth about Juliette and who she is. I kid
you not. The last freaking line I read before I had to go back and work was
Castle shakes his head as he says, "He never told you where she really
came from, did he? He never told you the truth about her parents."
Um. What? WHATTT?!
Though to be honest, I figured we'd learn more about her parents in this
one, but I was not prepared for the truth bomb that was dropped on us Let's just say that it was a good thing that I had actual tasks to
accomplish to keep my mind sort of off the book.
And it didn't help that my best friend was at about the same spot, except
she didn't have to work so she was plowing straight through it. And she kept
texting me. And just a little bit after I got off work, she called me in near
hysterics talking about how it had destroyed her, but she loved it, and she didn't
know how to deal with it.
Uh-oh. That didn't make me nervous at all *she says sarcastically*
And then a few minutes later she called back, asking if there was
information on when book 5 comes out. No, I told her. But, my guess would be
I stayed up until I had the entire thing finished. And I was shook. I had so
many emotions going through me, it was crazy. So I did what any best friend
would do. I sent her about a million texts so she'd see them when she woke up
in the morning, because I had to say something to someone about it.
Okay, I think that's it? On to some sort of actual review
I want to start off by talking about Warner. Because he's my favorite part
about everything in this series. I love the fact that we get dual POV in this
book. It's nice getting to be inside Warner's head. Warner and Juliette balance
each other out quite nicely, if I do say so myself.
I was initially scared, because I thought that my wonderful Smol-bean
Cinnamon Roll Warner was going to turn into an emotional wreck. I've seen it
happen to characters before. I wanted my cocky self-assured bad a$$ Warner
back, and I wanted him back now. But then I realized that he actually is still the same old, wonderful Aaron
Warner. We just never got to see inside his head before. The last 3 books, we
just saw his calm, cool, controlled exterior, which we all know by now, he
tried so hard to make himself that way. He's got so many thoughts and emotions
going on in his head, but he does an amazing job keeping it all internalized,
so all we get to see--when we're not actually seeing things from his
perspective--is the mask of calm that he does so well. He's had no choice in
that matter. He grew up with a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad father,
who did everything to make sure Warner turned into a non-feeling robot.
And just the fact that, even though Warner can be ruthless when the
situation calls for it, but at the same time, he takes no joy in hurting
others, and he does what he can to keep people safe, (like when he killed that
one soldier and everyone thought the worst of him, but we find out later that
he was a drunkard who beat his wife and kids) . And the fact that he cares so
deeply for Juliette, and for his mother, and that he cared even just a little
about his father despite the horrible person that he was, makes me love him
His emotions run so deep and so strong
He would literally do anything for Juliette to make her happy, even throwing
himself in harm's way. He tries hard to be friends with Kenji, though he makes
it difficult in typical Kenji fashion. He cleared off a whole floor to take in
And, and, and! Throughout the whole thing, he never doubts Juliette and her
ability to handle things with or without his help. He has %100 percent faith in
her. Something he says to her multiple times. Even when everyone, including
herself is doubting whether or not she can in fact handle everything that's
being thrown at her.
People are idiots, love. Their opinions are worthless
And how, instead of going to her like Castle said he should when Haider showed
up, he went to their room, because she hadn't told him or asked him for advice,
and he didn't want to hurt her, or undermine/make her think he doubted her
ability to handle the situation without him. So many times through the book,
did he repeat to her how much faith he had in her and reassure her that she was
doing a great job.
Adam and James
We don't really get to see a lot of Adam and James in this book. Just short
snippets here and there, and I have mixed feelings about that. I mean, I get
it. This is Warner and Juliette's story now, but I wanted some bro-bonding time
with the guys. I love how James is still so young and honest, and some of the
things that come out of his mouth make me laugh. He made Warner feel better,
just by being himself and saying things that big people know better than to say
to someone who's obviously hurting. It took Warner by surprise, and did make
him feel slightly better if only for a moment.
Adam, I am happy to say, is slowly redeeming himself from his douchebag self
that he was in books 2 and 3. He was an idiot, and he actually openly admits
that now. He knew what he did was awful, and he told Warner that he's glad
Juliette is with Warner, and that Juliette was right about him (Adam) wanting
the insecure girl that she used to be. He is slowly starting to accept the fact
that Warner is his brother, and he even said that he knows what's important
(family) and that's what he wants to start focusing on.
What I am actually not happy about in that whole Adam-Warner-James thing, is
the fact that Adam still won't tell James that Warner is their brother. Um.
Excuse me? Adam. If you don't put your big boy panties on soon and tell him,
I'm going Blue-Skadoo right into the book and tell him myself. He can handle
it. He may be young, but he's an old soul, and I think he'd be delighted to
learn that he has another big brother. And besides that, I think he'd be good
for Warner. Warner needs James just as much as James needs Adam, or vice versa.
James and Adam are the only family that Warner has (I mean, so far. Who knows
what the heck is going to happen) and James would be good for Warner.
Kenji and Castle
Castle kind of annoyed me ever so slightly. We didn't get to hear too much from
him, but what we did get to see... I don't know. He seemed so frazzled and
shifty, like he was hiding something. And gosh, he was being so vague about
everything. I think the most honest and straight up he was, was when he told
Warner about who Juliette really was.
Kenji on the other hand. He hasn't changed at all. And I love him for it. He's
still a smart a$$, and cocky, and says and does the worst things at the worst
times, and doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut about anything. Like when
he buzzed off Warner's hair. (I about died, because... HIS HAIR! Warner's
beautiful locks are gone!!) but I forgave him even if Warner hasn't yet. Kenji
still manages to bring a bit of comedic relief to situations when things are
going bad, and he can take charge even if he has absolutely no idea what he's
Heck, he's even supportive of Warner, and will lend him a listening ear when he
needs it. Like when Kenji walked in on Warner having a panic attack, and stayed
there with him until he was better, even though Warner kept telling him to
leave. Then he stayed longer to listen to what Warner had to say about why he
and Juliette were so upset.
And he's got himself a crush. He makes such a fool of himself, which is really
nothing new, but it was actually adorable. And when he's talking about it with
"She's, like, batshit pretty. The kind of pretty that makes a man think
getting murdered in his sleep might not be a bad way to go."
"Yeah," I say, but I say it quietly.
"What do you mean, you guess? I wasn't asking a question. That girl is
Kenji stops, takes my shoulders in his hands. "What is your deal,
"I don't know what you're--"
"Oh my God," he says, stunned. "Are you jealous?"
"No," I say, but I practically yell the word at him.
He's laughing now. "That's crazy. Why are you jealous?"
I shrug, mumble something.
"Wait, what's that?" He cups his hand over his ear. "You're
worried I'm going to leave you for another woman?"
"Shut up, Kenji. I'm not jealous."
"I'm not. I swear. I'm not jealous. I'm just--I'm just..."
I'm having a hard time.
But I never have a chance to say the words. Kenji suddenly picks me up,
spins me around and says, "Aw, you're so cute when you're jealous--"
And I kick him in the knee. Hard. --Restore Me, Tahereh Mafi pages 162-163
Seriously. This makes my heart so happy. The relationship between Juliette
and Kenji has always made me happy He's a great friend to Juliette, and will
listen to her problems, and tell her when she's being a whiny baby, but still
manages to be supportive when she needs it. I think everyone should have a best
friend like Kenji in their lives. Someone to be real with you and tell you when
you're being crazy, but is always supportive, and has your back.
Random Extra Characters
Nazeera and Haider were interesting, and I'm curious to see what role they
play in the next two books. I liked Nazeera better, and how she flipped Kenji
off when he questioned her about wearing her head wrap. I was like. Yeah! You
go girl. Tell him! And how she admitted that she didn't want to come with her
brother to spy on Warner and Juliette, but she decided that since her father
was making her go no matter what, she had decided that she was going to do her
best to watch out for Juliette. I don't really know how I feel about Haider
though. Because he wasn't really all that prevalent for the majority of the
story. And when he was, he was either being a jerk, or doing/saying something
that confused me. He had me perplexed. They're both still hiding things though,
and that makes me suspicious and wary of them.
Nicolas and Valentina
Well. I'm not sure what to think about them. They were introduced at kind of
the last second in the story, so we didn't really get to learn much about them
. I didn't get the feeling that they had malicious intentions, but then again
what do I know.
He's cute, and swoon worthy and I don't get the feeling that he's going to
be an enemy, but if he tries to hurt any of my babies in the future, then it's
on. I won't forgive him. Also, he can't have Juliette, so he better not try
anything funny. Juliette and Warner are my OTP, and I will fight for them.
Lena, Lena, Lena. You better just take a step back and stop being such a b
with an itch. Okay? Because let me tell you right now, no matter how big and
bad you think you are, you're not going to win. Not against Juliette. And
especially not with who she has backing her up.
My hope, is that all of these kids will end up banding together to overthrow
their parents and taking control of the different sectors and turning the whole
world around and making it better place, blah blah blah.
Okay. So. In this book we get to see how young and inexperienced she is. The
comparisons that she finally realizes exist between her and Warner, and her and
everyone in Warner's world are big. She's starting to lose faith in herself.
One of the biggest things that really throws her for a loop, was when she met
Haider, and she just felt so... out of her league? All because of what she was
wearing vs. what he was wearing. She still doesn't think she can handle
it, and she's getting overwhelmed by everything that's happening. She thought
that being in charge would be different, and she's starting to panic. Despite
the fact that she has Warner who has her back, and believes in her 200%
Juliette does so much growing up in this book. Like. A lot. And it was all
at once too. After everything that was thrown at her, she finally woke up and
decided that she was sick of it. It was kind of an impressive transformation.
But she's still the same Juliette. She's still insecure, but she does a much
better job at keeping it hidden. AND SHE SHAVED HER HEAD! You go Juliette.
YAAAS! (Not that she needed to shave her head to be fierce, but it helped her)
You got this, love.
But I'll be honest, I'm still having a hard time reconciling the hissy
fits/meltdowns she had in this book. I mean, Castle made the comment that
Juliette was very volatile and almost killed them when she thought they were
hurting Adam, but almost any other time she was able to stop herself, because
she was terrified of hurting people. I fully understand that I am way
overthinking this. I know all of this is building up to something even more
wonderful. I hope so at least. I am putting all of my faith in Tahereh Mafi,
because I have yet to be disappointed by her books.
The Part That Destroyed MY FREAKING HEART
So now here's where I'm going to actually freak the heck out a little. And have
even more spoilers, so read with caution
I get that Juliette is upset with Warner because he kept secrets from her. I
would be upset too. However, the amount of upset that Juliette was,
astronomical. Bordering on No, not even bordering on, it was definitely too
The whole Juliette has a sister thing definitely threw me for a loop. And
the fact she's been locked away for years, and Warner had a part in that, but
had no idea who she was, or what she was to Juliette. It killed me. Because
it's tearing him up because he knows how much that little revelation hurts
And what do you mean that Juliette was upset because Warner's had girlfriend
(s) before her... OF COURSE HE HAS. Have you seen him? Who wouldn't want to go
out with Warner? I'd go out with Warner. Gosh. Yeah, that had me shaking my
head at her. Silly Juliette.
And now, are you ready for my giant freak out? The one I've been holding in
WHAT WAS WITH THAT ENDING?!?!?!?!!!!? I'm not okay, I'm not okay, I'm not
okay. That's not cool. What happened to Kenji? He's not dead is he? No. He
can't be. And Castle? And the others? Like... no. I'm in denial here big time,
because if I start thinking about it, I start hyperventilating. I'm hoping that
everyone (and by everyone I mean Kenji, Alia, Brendan, Ian, and Castle) aren't
really dead. And what are they going to do with Warner, huh? They put him in
handcuffs. Is he okay? is he in jail? What? I hope, hope, hope, this was part
of a plan. Or that they're not really dead, they're just hurt and Sonja and
Sara can fix them. Jeeeeze, I really can't handle this. AND WHAT DO YOU MEAN
THAT JULIETTE AND WARNER KNEW EACH OTHER WHEN THEY WERE LITTLE, AND SHE'S THE
DAUGHTER OF OCEANIA???!
Sorry. I'm still stuck on the fact that MY SMOL PRECIOUS BABIES MIGHT BE DEAD, THANKYOUVERYMUCH
I'm still not okay. I might have screamed.
And almost threw the book.
Then freaked out about it to my little sister.
Then texted my best friend a million times.
Then tossed and turned in bed the rest of the night.
And now here I am impatiently waiting for any sort of news about book 5, that
doesn't come out until sometime next year.
I think that what I love most about this series, is the fact that it makes me
feel so many different emotions, and there are so many plot twists and
revelations that I absolutely never see coming. And the character and world
building are out of this world.
Tahereh Mafi, even though you're DESTROYING my heart right now, I absolutely
adore your books. They've never done me wrong before.
