Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Composed For Customizing Layout Video Archives The Iw6zq6TFavourite quotes:

1. Don’t look at the shadows too long, or a demon might look back.

2. If you desired someone, if he comforted you, if you thought he might leech the poison out of your hear, was that love? Or only desperation?

Avalon (Avalon#1) by Mindee ArnettIs App – Com Mobile For Binance Payment Artboxphotography Crypto Safe BfXH8frq

Composed For Customizing Layout Video Archives The Iw6zq6TFavourite quote: Was the promise of freedom just something the desperate and oppressed clung to because they didn’t have anything else? Had it always been just a dream, a fantasy built up in the mind of  a boy forced to grow up too soon?

Fake ID by Lamar Giles

Composed For Customizing Layout Video Archives The Iw6zq6TFavourite quote: You don’t have to know someone your whole life to know them. Not really. Lonely is the same everywhere.

No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale

Composed For Customizing Layout Video Archives The Iw6zq6TFavourite quote: When you’re little, you think nothing bad can happen to you because if you fall out of that tree, a fireman will catch you, or a doctor will fix it–and if someone brings a gun to school, maybe it’s okay to engage in dangerous heroics because an ambulance will get there soon enough. Now here I am with a sheriff whose first thought after a murder is maybe I can pin in on that guy I don’t like. 

Uninvited (Uninvited#1) by Sophie Jordan

Composed For Customizing Layout Video Archives The Iw6zq6TFavourite quote:  Some wounds are deeper than death. If nothing else, I’ve learned that.

The Lure by Lynne Ewing

Composed For Customizing Layout Video Archives The Iw6zq6TFavourite quotes:

1. “Four can keep a secret if three are dead.”

2. Sometimes the right choice caused suffering for the people we loved. And that was never a good reason to back down from doing what was morally right.

3. “I think I’ve been looking at my life from the wrong way,” I said. “What if, when fate gives you something bad, it’s not to defeat you, it’s so you’ll see the problem and do something about it.”

Book Review: Fake ID by Lamar Giles

Composed For Customizing Layout Video Archives The Iw6zq6TFake ID by Lamar Giles

Homeland Security 29 May 2014 Oversight Hearing Video Department Publisher: HarperTeen

Genre: Contemporary and Young Adult

Release Date: January 21, 2014

Pages: 320 (Hardcover)

Nick Pearson is hiding in plain sight…

My name isn’t really Nick Pearson.

I shouldn’t tell you where I’m from or why my family moved to Stepton, Virginia.

I shouldn’t tell you who I really am, or my hair, eye, and skin color.

And I definitely shouldn’t tell you about my friend Eli Cruz and the major conspiracy he was about to uncover when he died—right after I moved to town. About how I had to choose between solving his murder with his hot sister, Reya, and “staying low-key” like the Program has taught me. About how moving to Stepon changed my life forever.

But I’m going to.

First of all, I would like to thank the publisher, HarperTeen for giving me an ARC of this book to review. Thank you so much! Really appreciate it! All right, now for my review.

Fake ID kind of just swept me off of my feet and blew me away. I was expecting a darker story and for it to be a lot slower but I got something a bit different. Lamar Giles has written a story about family, romance, and above all, trust. Which has earned him a respected place among my favourite authors.

I had a hard time connecting with some characters since their  back stories and histories are told too late in the story for me to actually care about them. I wished that more of a reaction was shown when people found out about Nick and his family instead of what I got. Everyone seems too calm about it, even Reya who I was expecting to go bat shit crazy didn’t satisfy me.

Giles jumps right into the action and never stopped entertaining me. There’s a lot of it and a romance but I loved how it takes the backseat throughout the whole novel. A really big part of the story is the witness protection program that Nick’s family is in and I thought that it’s very well done. It’s woven into he story form the beginning to the end of it.

Overall, this is a great story that I really enjoyed. I loved how race doesn’t add in a lot of the typical stereotypes. I recommend Fake ID to everyone, especially people who like mystery stories with quite a bit of action in them.
