My Sweet Audrina

Name: My Sweet Audrina
Author: V.C. Andrews
Rating: 4/5

Description:
V.C. Andrews, author of the phenomenally successful Dollanganger series, has created a fascinating new cast of characters in this haunting story of love and deceit, innocence and betrayal, and the suffocating power of parental love. Audrina Adare wanted so to be as good as her sister. She knew her father could not love her as he loved her sister. Her sister was so special, so perfect -- and dead.
Now she will come face to face with the dangerous, terrifying secret that everyone knows. Everyone except...  My Sweet Audrina

My Review:
The movie followed this story pretty close tho Audrina's younger sister never existed... I like the story in the book much better. The actual V.C. Andrews books written by herself are so much better than the ones the pen writer does now... this book was soooo good! I'll be picking up the second book Whitefern just to find out what happens next even tho its the pen writer!

Coraline

Title: Coraline
Author: Neil Gaiman
Rating: 5/5

Description:
The day after they moved in, Coraline went exploring....

In Coraline's family's new flat are twenty-one windows and fourteen doors. Thirteen of the doors open and close.

The fourteenth is locked, and on the other side is only a brick wall, until the day Coraline unlocks the door to find a passage to another flat in another house just like her own.

Only it's different.

At first, things seem marvelous in the other flat. The food is better. The toy box is filled with wind-up angels that flutter around the bedroom, books whose pictures writhe and crawl and shimmer, little dinosaur skulls that chatter their teeth. But there's another mother, and another father, and they want Coraline to stay with them and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.

Other children are trapped there as well, lost souls behind the mirrors. Coraline is their only hope of rescue. She will have to fight with all her wits and all the tools she can find if she is to save the lost children, her ordinary life, and herself.

My Sweet and Short Review:
This is a reread, I picked this book up over 10 years ago and it freaked me out and it still does. The book is like nothing like the movie... creepy as heck. Neil Gaiman can really tell a story and I love this one and its perfect for Halloweenie time! And the characters are colorful and enjoyable. :) Pick it up and enjoy it!

Angel's Dance

Title: Angel's Dance
Author: Nalini Singh
Rating: 3/5

Description:
The gentle teacher of angelic young, and the keeper of her people's histories, Jessamy is respected and admired by everyone who knows her. Yet, born unable to soar into flight, she has spent thousands of years trapped in the mountain stronghold of the Refuge, her heart encased in painful loneliness...until the arrival of Galen, warrior angel from a martial court.

Rough-edged and blunt, Galen is a weapons-master at home with violence, a stranger to the sweet words it takes to woo a woman--but he is also a man determined to claim Jessamy for his own, to dance with her through the skies denied her for so very long...even if their exhilarating passion proves as dangerous as the landscape of war and unrest that lies before them.


My Sweet & Short Review:
This short story was alright, didn't really go anywhere. Or anything. Idk what to say about it...

Me Before You

Title: Me Before You
Author: Jojo Moyes

Rating: 4/5

Description:
They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose . . .

Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has barely been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

A Love Story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?

My Sweet & Short Review:
A really good book, loved the characters maybe too much since the end I was crying so hard. Very heartbreaking and I don't think I can watch the movie that's for sure... read for a challenge but I think I'm glad I read it... I think... let me calm down a bit and wipe my face... *tears up*
