Title: I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You
Author: Ally Carter
Release Date: May 2006
Series: The Gallagher Girls Series
Rating: ★★★★
Pages: 284
Age Group: Young Adult


"Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a fairly typical all-girls school—that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE and the latest in chemical warfare in science, and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes in computer class. The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses but it’s really a school for spies.
Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways, she has no idea what to do when she meets an ordinary boy who thinks she’s an ordinary girl. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, or track him through town with the skill of a real “pavement artist”—but can she maneuver a relationship with someone who can never know the truth about her?
Cammie Morgan may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she’s on her most dangerous mission—falling in love."


    So I enjoyed this book more the first time I read it than when I read it the second time. Maybe it's because I like the action the other three have that I feel this one doesn't have as much of.

    This book was good, I liked Ally Carter's idea of a top secret spy school that everyone else thinks is for snobby rich kids. It was very creative and different and one of my favorite series.

    This one doesn't have as much spy action as the other ones do, it is more focused on the romance part, but its still really good. I also really liked the cover and the title. It was the part that drew me in.

    Anyway sorry for the really lame review guys :/ I just couldn't think of that much to write for this book, hope you all forgive me. *hopeful smile*

Title: The Iron King
Author: Julie Kagawa
Series: The Iron Fey
Rating: ★★★★★


"Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined…
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart."

  *sighs* If only your love for a character could bring them to life. If that were so, Prince Ash would be standing in my bedroom right now as I type this, *nods* yes he would. 


 But anyway.... this book was super good. It took me a while to get into it but as soon as it reached the rising action, I was HOOKED! I would be at school WISHING that I could read through all my classes. I was draw into this book in a way that was bordering on obsessive (in a good way). I flew through the rest of it and immediately went out to go buy the second and third.


  I loved all the characters in this book! (obviously I am Team Ash ^.^) Everybody was just so likable which is very rare in books...in my opinion. I think everyone should check this out cause it was just amazing. =D

Title: Beastly
Author: Alex Flinn
Rating: ★★★★ 1/2
Age Group: Young Adult

"A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright—a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.
You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It's no deformity, no disease. And I'll stay this way forever—ruined—unless I can break the spell.
Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly."

  This book was super cute. From watching the movie trailer I thought it would be a lot different from Beauty and the Beast, but actually it reminded me a lot of it. 

   It was a lot like Beauty and the Beast, up to the point where I could practically predict what was going to happen next just because I saw the Disney movie. The only difference is it was obviously more teen adapted. 

   The character of Kyle really annoyed me at first because he was so cocky and conceited. But of course that's why he gets turned into a beast. It was a really cute book and a nice read.

Clockwork Angel Countdown

Title: Clockwork Angel
Author: Cassandra Clare
Series: The Infernal Devices
Rating: ★★★★★
Age Group: Young Adult

"Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still.
When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.
Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What’s more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.
Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length . . . everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world. . . . and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all."

   I had my doubts about this book when I first started reading it, because even though I loved the first three books in The Mortal Instruments Series, the cover of this one kind of turned me off. Its a really pretty cover but its just not my type of cover, if you get what I mean. :/

   I was pleasantly surprised with this book though :) It was AMAZING! It definitely reminded me why I like Cassandra Clare's writing.

   I thought it was super good for the first book in the series. And the ending of it left me dying for more! This book is definitely one of my favorites :) I think all of you should pick up this book! You won't be disappointed!! =]
