IN MY MAILBOX #1

#1
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren where you can list the new books you somehow recieved.

Okay this is my first time doing this (hence the number one in bright pink.) so I hope this is okay. Ummmmm, well these are books that I bought or got from the library. All of them are ebooks. (Weird right?) So..... Here it goes:

Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future.

Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways…or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.
(Summary from Goodreads)




Red mirrored scales race up my arms as the haze of pain blurs my vision. My bones crack, breaking to realign. I scream. It is then that the realization of my unavoidable fate sinks in; I am of a dying race. I am dragon.

Aurora Megalos, orphaned and teetering on the edge of adulthood, thought finding her past would curb the sting of being an outcast. Having no memories of the time before she awoke on her foster mother’s doorstep, she yearns for the emptiness inside her to be filled. With her fellow orphaned best friend, Fenn, by her side, she has nothing to lose and everything to gain. But something powerful stirred within her that she couldn’t explain. Something wanted out.

In the dark of night, a crazed Seer, dubbed Mr.Creepy, erases everything she’s ever known with an impending prophecy. She now faces two paths. Return to her true home to protect a dying race against a growing evil, or stay hidden in the safety of our realm with a shot at a true love. With a vengeful Arch Enemy stopping at nothing to see her dead, she’s running out of time; a decision must be made. What would you choose?

(Summary from Goodreads)
 

Eternal Life is To Die For.

Seventeen year old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP—a genetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on prime water-front property along-side other equally beautiful people with extended life spans.

Her brother Liam is missing.

Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they’ve created between those who have and those who don’t. He doesn’t like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically.

Zoe’s carefree life takes a traumatic turn. She’s in trouble and it turns out that Noah, the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her.

(Summary form Goodreads)


Created for evil.
Raised to protect.
Searching for truth.
******
Extraordinary teen Meg Winters and her brothers, Alik and Evan are shoved into a new reality when they discover life is not what they thought it was: there is evil hunting them, they are not normal teen, and their mother's captor wants them back to continue his plans for the perfect race.

Untraceable

Title: Untraceable
Author: S.R. Johannes
Genre: YA, Action, Adventure, Thriller, Mystery, Nature
Content: Bear deaths
Series: The Nature of Grace
Rating: Owl

Okay this is one of my absolute favorite books.

THE PREMISE
Three months after Grace's father goes missing, Grace is as determined as ever to find out where he went. Everyone else has given up hope that he is still alive and police chief Carl is trying to close the case. Grace searches the Smoky Mountains determined to find him and prove everyone wrong.
THE PROS
1. Grace is awesome!! How can you not love an MC who is totally her own person AND is adventurous!!
2. Mo and Wyn. Both added so much to the story. Mo's all like I'm mysterious and like totally awesome and Wyn's like I'm Hilarious!!
3. The setting. I love mountains, so a story set in the Smoky Mountains is my cup of tea.
4. The mystery. I love the whole, OMG what's gonna happen next!! I don't want to give too much away, so that's all I'll say.
5. Okay, I love everything about this book, so to prevent needless ramblings, I'm just gonna say there are no cons.
OVERALL
This book is probably my favorite book that I've read this year. Untraceable is mixed with the right amount of suspense, intrigue and mystery that will keep you flipping the pages until you hit the end.
Throughout the book you see Grace struggling with relationships to her mom and the rest of the townspeople. People are trying to help her come to terms with her father's disappearance and possible death. The ending is really surprising and not at all obvious. The characters are well written with lots of depth and it is easy to completely lose yourself in the story!
I really loved this book and have just read the next book in the series. I can't wait until the third book comes out. This series is defiantly worth taking the time to read!
WOULD I READ THIS BOOK: OBVIOUSLY
WOULD I BUY THIS BOOK: IT IS WELL WORTH MY MONEY
WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK: WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE
WOULD I READ THE NEXT BOOK: TO LATE TO STOP ME
WOULD I READ OTHER BOOKS BY THIS AUTHOR: YEAH!!!
AM I HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH THIS BOOK: IT"S IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO BE

 FIVE STARS=OWL


Starters

Title: Starters
Author: Lissa Price
Genre: YA, Sci-Fi, Mystery, Thriller, Adventure, Mystery
Content: Some Violence
Series: Starters and Enders #1
Rating: Owl

So this will be my first ever review on this blog!!! This is a review I wrote a while ago, but I thought I might as well post a review on a book I really liked right away. So anyways, here is my breakdown of the book.
THE PREMISE
Callie squats in a building with her seven year old brother and her friend Michael. They are both minors and are not allowed to work so they must scavenge what they can. Getting food and even water is extremely hard to do. If they are caught, they could be put into the institution, a place where unclaimed minors go. So when the marshals come and kick them out of the building they are forced to run. With no place to go and all of there possessions are gone, Callie has one choice, she must go to Prime Destinations where she can rent her body out to the Enders, who are old people. (people live way into their 100's in this time) When Callie wakes up at the Enders house and learns she has only rented her body for a week when she should have rented it for a whole month, she realizes something is wrong. After a voice in her head tells her not to go back to Prime Destinations things start to change.
This book was awesome! The premise was great, the character were great and the ending was so surprising!
THE PROS
1. Callie was an amazing heroine! She was facing her fears to ensure that her brother could live a better life.
2. Helena, Blake, The Old Man, Micheal, and Tyler were great they had depth and great personalities.
3. The mystery as to why everything was happening took such a drastic twist at the end, left me desperately waning to read the next book!
4. The Villain was awesome, he was creepy, yet you wanted to know more about him.
THE CONS
1. I highly doubt that taking down a corporation sponsored by the president would have been that easy, but I get why the author didn't want to write about how long it took them to win against the evil corporation.
2. The ending raised some serious questions and I don't know how I'll make it to the next book!
OVERALL
This book definitely made my top reads of 2012!! Lissa Price is an AMAZING author, like super awesome. One of the best things was I really didn't see the end coming. Normally in a book I can figure out at least part of what will happen, but in this book my mouth dropped open! LITERALLY!! I was shocked! I really can't wait for the next book to come out! That's the other great thing there were a planned two books. It's not gonna be a trilogy!! That makes me so happy! (Even if it was a trilogy I would still read the books. I just feel that so many authors are dragging out their series forever!
WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK: YES
WOULD I BUY THIS BOOK: YES
WOULD I REREAD THIS BOOK:WITHOUT A DOUBT
WOULD I READ THE NEXT BOOK: YEP!!
WOULD I READ OTHER BOOKS BY THIS AUTHOR: DEFINITELY, I LOVE HER WRITING STYLE
AM I HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH THIS BOOK: WHO WOULDN'T BE!!




OWL=FIVE STARS







So tell me, do you feel the same way about Starters by Lissa Price as I do? Or are you thinking about how crazy I am? Seriously, I want to know!! :)

Working on figuring everything out....

As I continue to try to solve the mystical world of blogging, I decided to make a list of the random books that I already own and plan to review. Now many of these books will not be reviewed if A.) They bore me or B.) I have no real opinion on. So now that I put that out there, hopefully I'll figure everything out and not confuse myself. So thanks for reading this.....

My first ever post!!!

Okay, so I've never done a blog before, so hopefully this will turn out okay. Or it might crash and burn. Well anyways this amazing blog, if you haven't guessed will be about books and the color green. Okay so less about the color green and more about the books. I realize the name of the blog is semi-misleading because it says live green. And as much as I think that living a green life style is important to our world, in no way whatsoever will I be writing about things like recycling. Okay, moving on..... So, on this blog I'll be reviewing mostly Young Adult books, with some Middle Grade thrown in.
Now the question at hand is why am I writing this blog? Well my answer would have to be that I love books and I like sharing my opinions. I've written reviews before, but never have I ever written them on a blog. And since it seems like it could be a fun experience I decided to try it out. So for a while this blog might be kind of crazy, as I try to figure everything out.
On that note, wish me luck because I am going to need it! :)
