Delia's Crossing

Title: Delia's Crossing
Author: V.C. Andrews
Rating: 3/5
Reviewed for Netgalley


A young immigrant girl escapes Mexico for America. One of the most popular storytellers of all time, V.C. Andrews (Flowers in the Attic, My Sweet Audrina) layers psychological suspense with sheer terror in this provocative first book of the classic Delia Series.

A young immigrant comes to America to escape un sino cruel, a cruel fate…

After her parents are killed in a truck accident, Delia Yebarra’s life is turned upside down. At fifteen, she leaves the rural Mexican village where she grew up and embarks on a new life in America. Coming to her wealthy aunt Isabella’s huge estate in Palm Springs, California, should be a dream come true for a simple country girl like Delia….

Only to become un preso del destino, a prisoner of destiny.

Instead, her aunt refuses to acknowledge Delia’s heritage, relegating her to servants’ quarters with a licentious language tutor intent on exploiting the pretty young foreigner. Her cousin Edward is kind, but cousin Sophia is cruel, manipulative, and resentful of Delia’s beauty. And just when Delia begins to embrace the life of a real American girl, a heartbreaking chain of events sends her spiraling back to a Mexico she hardly recognizes, making her wonder if she will ever find a place to call home.

My Short and Sweet Review:
This isn't the first time reading this book, but it was just as good. but of course I know that all her books are pretty ummmmm taboo... So I was surprised that her cousin didn't do anything with her. The only problem I had with this book was that some, very little Spanish wasn't translated... I mean most was but at parts I was like huh? So I give it 3 stars for my lack of Spanish!

Everything, Everything

Title: Everything, Everything
Author: Nicola Yoon
Rating:  5/5

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.

My Short & Sweet Review:
