Summary: Some things are worth waiting for… Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself. Some things are worth experiencing… (read more on Goodreads.com).

#3 Dream Casting | The Winner's Curse

It's time for The Winner's Curse dream casting. It's always exciting to do this! I think it'll be hard though, but I am ready :) If you want to check out my previous dream castings, click here!

The Winner's Curse is the first book in The Winner's Trilogy, and the series is one of my favorites ever, hands down. I'm focusing on three main characters from the books in this post. However, I may do more posts in the future with other characters.. We'll see :) Anyways, here's my dream cast:

Review: The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

Title: The Rest of Us Just Live Here
Author: Patrick Ness
Series: -
Genre: Young Adult, Fiction, Contemporary, Friendship, Fantasy, Paranormal
Pages: 336
Published: August 27th 2015 by Walker Books
My rating: 4/5

 
Summary: What if you aren’t the Chosen One? The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death? What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again. Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life. Even if your best friend is worshipped by mountain lions (via Goodreads.com).

Review: The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski

Title: The Winner's Crime
Author: Marie Rutkoski
Series: The Winner's Trilogy, #2
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Romance
Pages: 400
Published: March 12th 2015 by Bloomsbury Children's
My rating: 5/5

 
Summary: The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret. As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them (via Goodreads.com).
