Favorite Quote: “I knew they would kill me when they found out, but…” He struggled for words, releasing a sharp breath. “I think I realized that I would rather die because I betrayed them, than live because I betrayed you.”
"Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She's trying to break out of prison--even though if she succeeds, she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive. Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit's grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother's whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner."
Lets start with the good okay? I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was a great read and I found myself on multiple nights staying up late thinking there is no time for sleep. I just had to find out what happened to my beloved characters. This book had my heart pounding at times, tears rolling down my face, I was angry at times yelling "You tell them girl!!!", and I also smiled like a crazy person. So yes this book is great at getting reaction out of the reader. The characters were complex in the best way. Scarlet is full of fire and brave. Cinder lovers don't panic you will be reading a lot of her. There are new characters that I loved, and loved to hate. Meyer took Cinder and Scarlet's separate stories and twined them together in a fantastic shocking way. I thought this was a great sequel and it had me excited for the next book. So do I recommend this book and you going on with the series? Absolutely yes!
Now that I have said that do I think it is better then Cinder? No I loved Cinder and to me, it would be very hard to out do it. Scarlet was beautiful and I think Meyers has a great talent for really sinking the reader into the world she created and making a beloved story into her own. However this book had a few flaws I had a hard time getting past. I am picky about books that have different POVS. I think that it is EXTREMLY difficult to get two POVS to work. This book had MANY POVS. Some POVS were short and almost felt not needed in my opinion. I found myself at times forgetting whose POV I was reading. Like I said though, I am picky and weird with POVS. Sometimes it just takes me awhile to get use to them and after a few chapters I get use to it. With this book it took a little longer then normal for me to get use to it and I sadly felt the need to let you guys know. That was my main concern. What did you guys like about this book? Let me know what you guys thought about Scarlet, and don't be shy I love hearing from you guys! =)

Tea Review: Davids Tea Cold 911

Cold 911 Emergency relief Bad colds require kick butt interventions. Take this tea, for example. It’s a deliciously soothing mix of peppermint, juniper berries and apple. Pretty kick butt, right? If that’s not extreme enough for you, you could try eating raw garlic, or gargling salt water, or inhaling lots of steam. Yeah...we didn’t think so. Probably better just to stick to the tea. With its soothing citrus and mint aroma we can’t guarantee miracle results, but at least we can guarantee it tastes great. (MK Kosher) Ingredients Organic: Peppermint, apple, juniper berries. With natural eucalyptus and orange flavouring*.
So fun fact, while helping six year olds practice their reading you may will get spit on. Another fun fact when they are sick and spit on you, you will get sick and feel like the walking dead. Times like this is why I am so happy that I stocked up on some of Davids Tea . Yup you guessed it after being spit on I was sicker than a dog. I was coughing, running a fever, m…

Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

I couldn't decide which type of villain I wanted to write about, so that lead me to do subcategories. I feel like such a rebel!
Villains I Love To Hate 
The Beautiful Pretender I have a review of this book coming soon so I won't say too much, but there is a character I absolutely hate. Most villains have redeeming qualities, but this character had lacked any of those qualities. She loved to hurt others and was completely heartless. 
The Falconer The Villain in this book was completely cut throat, heartless, violent, and everything I love to hate. This Villain did things that ripped my heart out, stomped on it, then put it through a shredder. 
Empire of Storms I have n…
