Anyone? by Angela Scott

I finished this book in about three hours...
I also tweeted her to see if there would be a sequel...which I want really bad...

"The end of the world? That’s the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters and deep philosophical exercises in school. No need to sweat it. So when sixteen-year-old Tess’s doomsday-dad builds a bomb shelter in their suburban backyard, everyone thinks he’s gone crazy….
…Until fire rains down from the sky, sinking whole cities into colossal craters and setting much of the world ablaze.
Tess’s dad gives her a few short minutes to gather her emergency bag and her freaked-out kitten, then leads her outside and into the underground shelter. Terrified, the last thing she expects is for him to leave her there all alone, but he has no choice—he must find her missing brother. Before leaving, he makes Tess promise to keep the hatch door shut, not to open it for anyone but him, and to stay put until he returns.
But he forgot to tell her one thing: What is she supposed to do if he never comes back?" -Goodreads


Anyone? is a novel about a young girl who has to set out on her own after her world is torn apart. On her journey, she meets a few people and tries to keep her kitten, Callie, in line with a pink leash. It was an interesting read and I could not put it down. At the end all I wanted was a sequel to this wonderful novel.

On Goodreads, I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars, but it is more like a 4.75 out of 5 stars. I liked the character development for some characters but loved it for others like Tess, the protagonist. Although I would have liked to know more about some characters like her dad or her brother. Or Cole...! I loved watching her grow as a person and seeing how she had changed by the end. While I loved her character, my favorite has to be Cole! He is a humorous male character that Tess meets and "befriends". Even if they argue and don't totally get a long in the beginning.

Also I liked the romance. I love how it was slow in its beginning and remained so throughout the novel and it was not like love at first sight, which I think is kinda over done. I also liked Angela's writing style and how her novel seemed to flow. I loved the wit and charm of her writing as well. Her dialogue was funny and serious at appropriate times. It also had a lot of wit, which I loved!   

I would recommend this novel to anyone who wants a fast paced, exciting, and well-written novel. Also I recommend this to people who love world ending situations! This book is available on December 1st!

My Favorite Quote: "'I'm sure you would've managed. Sometimes we don't know how strong we are or what we're capable of doing until we're forced to find out.'"- Cole

Night of All Evil by J.M. Shorney

My Rating: 3/5 stars Average Rating: 4/5 stars Format: ebook ISBN13: 9781310806902
I received a free copy in exchange for a honest review from AuthorAmp.com
Night of All Evil was a good gothic horror novel about a witch named Freya that has a dark past that comes back to haunt her and her family. Freya was my favorite character and I really enjoyed reading from her point of view. The thing I liked about her was how she acted in the situations she is placed in. She also is just an interesting person that also happens to be a super powerful witch, which is pretty cool. In fact once I started this novel, I had a hard time putting it down. While I really enjoyed reading the story, the character development was just okay and it was kind of predictable. However, it was still a good read that grabbed my attention and kept me entertained.                                                                                                   Thanks for reading!                                            …

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon Tips for All!

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great month. I am super excited since the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon is almost here. I have only done this once, but I learned a lot during that 24 hour period. Now I am going to share my advice with you.

1. Read What YOU Want to Read.

This is incredibly important. If you are not reading something you want to read and your pushing yourself to read it, then put it down and take a break. Read something you want or take a nap. If your doing this, it could led to a reading slump or watching Netflix... I totally did that! Not that there is anything wrong with taking a break! Or watching Netflix...


2. Take Breaks, Even Naps!

This is key to having fun during this read-a-thon! If your eyes start to blur, take a nap. If your hungry or want to watch Netflix for a little bit. Do it! Or you could cheer other people on during the read-a-thon. If you didn't sign up to be a cheerleader, join #TeamRogue and cheer. :D Just do not over work yourself.
