The Book of Ivy (The Book of Ivy, #1)
After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual. 
This year, it is my turn. 
My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill the president’s son—my soon-to-be husband—and restore the Westfall family to power. 
But Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled actor or he’s not the cruel, heartless boy my family warned me to expect. He might even be the one person in this world who truly understands me. But there is no escape from my fate. I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy. 
Because Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him…

[STACKING THE SHELVES] Where did my vacation go?

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted at Tynga’s Reviews.

Hello,

I just bought these books the moment I went back to school (okay, I bought them last Saturday, my last school day for the week). AAND I’m really glad to finally get my hands on these two! Especially the 5th Wave!

The Perfectionists. This is my first Sara Shepard book. I never cared about her previous books because I thought that I won’t like them but really reading through their blurbs, maybe I just might like them. The Perfectionists is quite intriguing. I’m really excited to read this!
The 5th Wave. I HAVE BEEN MEANING TO GET MY HANDS ON THIS BOOK AND NOW I HAVE IT. I FINALLY HAVE THE 5TH WAVE. Enough with the allcaps. I don’t read alien books just because I’m not interested in them. At all. Of all sci-fi ideas, I think the idea of aliens is one of those I’ve been avoiding. And now because of all the people raving about this book, I just have to read this! (I’m definitely getting The Infinite Sea this coming week!).

[REVIEW] Being Friends with Boys

Series: N/A
Author: Terra Elan McVoy
Genre: young adult, romance, contemporary, chick lit, realistic fiction, music
Published: May 1, 2012
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Being Friends with Boys
More than friends? 
Charlotte and Oliver have been friends forever. She knows that he, Abe, and Trip consider her to be one of the guys, and she likes it that way. She likes being the friend who keeps them all together. Likes offering a girl's perspective on their love lives. Likes being the behind-the-scenes wordsmith who writes all the lyrics for the boys' band. Char has a house full of stepsisters and a past full of back-stabbing (female) ex-best friends, so for her, being friends with boys is refreshingly drama-free… until it isn't anymore. 
When a new boy enters the scene and makes Char feel like, well, a total girl… and two of her other friends have a falling out that may or may not be related to one of them deciding he possibly wants to be more than friends with Char… being friends with all these boys suddenly becomes a lot more complicated.

[TOP TEN TUESDAY] Books I Want to Reread

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and The Bookish.

This Week's Topic: Top Ten Books I Want To Reread (or if you don't reread...would reread in an ideal world)

I really want to reread books and I'll definitely reread a nice amount of them only if I had the time... sometimes I DO reread. I've reread Unwind a couple of times and I don't really mind rereading it again and again. I've also reread Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. But most of the times I just tell myself that I'll reread them and they don't happen (well not yet...).
