Weekly Highlights; The Late Edition

Posted on 17 November, 2013 by Faye - 4 Comments

weekly highlights

Weekly Highlights is a new feature here at A Daydreamer’s Thoughts and will be a post highlighting things that happened on and off the blog. It is inspired by The Story Sirens In My Mailbox, Books, Biscuit and Tea’s Showcase Sunday, Kimba Caffeinated’s Sunday Post, and the British Letterbox Love.

In the feature I won’t mention everything I received, nor every post I wrote during the week but will simply feature a selection of things I wish to spotlight a second time around.


Post Highlights

I missed this post last week and it’s going up late this week as well because I’ve been crazy busy so here’s the highlights of the last two weeks for you all!

I posted SEVEN reviews;
The Frogspell Series by C. J. Busby (FOUR HEARTS)
Deception by C. J. Redwine (FIVE HEARTS)
Geek Girl: Model Misfit by Holly Smale (FIVE HEARTS)
Allegiant by Veronica Roth (THREE HEARTS)
Resist by Sarah Crossan (FOUR HEARTS)
Gripped by Jason Donnelly (FOUR HEARTS)
Darcy Burdock by Laura Dockrill (FOUR HEARTS)


Netgalley November

We’re now two weeks into November and so I’ve posted two updates. Check them out here;

Update #1
Update #2


NaNoWriMo

So you may remember I am also doing NaNoWriMo this month but, unfortunately, it isn’t going as well as I planned. I come home from work and am too exhausted to do much more than read or watch television. So I’m a bit behind on my word count but I’ve still got my hopes up that I’ll find the time and energy to finish. Wish me luck?


Letterbox Love

letterboxlove2

P1000276

The Forever of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen; This came into the library and I simply had to take it out. I finished The Secret of Ella and Micha at the beginning of the year and I’m really looking forward to finishing it.

Grave Mercy by R. L. LaFevers; I got this book from the library as I got a recommendation from a friend. I’m really looking forward to finally reading it.

Matilda by Roald Dahl; So in the beginning of December I’m going to go and see Matilda the musical and so I decided that I wanted to re-read the book before I go and so I got it out of the library.

Forsaken by Jana Oliver; I haven’t read this series yet and after meeting Jana Oliver earlier this year, I’m really excited to start reading this one!

Geek Girl: Model Misfit by Holly Smale; I loved this book so much that I went to the store to buy myself a copy after reading it on Netgalley. I simply had to have the first and second book on my bookshelf.

Divergent by Veronica Roth; Because I was going to meet Veronica Roth and you could only get one book signed, I decided to buy this book in the UK paperback so that it matched my Insurgent copy. I’m actually really looking forward to re-reading this one next year.

Arthur: The Seeing Stone by Kevin Crossly-Holland; After finishing the Frogspell series, I was in a really big medieval mood when I came across this book in the library. Seeing that it was on audiobook, decided to give it a go. Think it’ll be a good book to try listening to!

Harry Potter 1 Harry Potter 2 Shadowplay The Almost Girl

Harry Potter and The Philospher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling; I got this in e-audiobook format from my library and have already listened to it. I loved being sucked into this story all over again and so I couldn’t help getting the next book in the series.

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling; Another e-audiobook from the library. Part-way through this one and just really enjoying this re-read.

Shadowplay by Laura Lam; This is a netgalley ebook and is the second book in the Pantomime series and I am really looking forward to continuing on this story.

The Almost Girl by Amalie Howard; As soon as I heard about this I knew that I simply had to read it. When I saw it on Netgalley, I instantly requested it and now that I have it, I know that I’ll be reading it very soon!


And there you have it, my Weekly Highlights!

I hope to visit all posts of this manner, so feel free to link to your own IMMs, Sunday Showcase, Sunday Posts, Letterbox Loves or whatever it is you do below!

what did you get this week? what cool blog posts did you stumble upon? what are you waiting to happen this week?

Book Review; Darcy Burdock by Laura Dockrill

Posted on 16 November, 2013 by Faye - 3 Comments

Author: Laura Dockrill
Publisher: Random House Children’s
Published: 28th February
Pages: 288
Format: Paperback
Source:: Review Copy
Add It: Goodreads, Amazon UK, TBD

Summary:
Introducing Darcy Burdock, a new, cool, all-conquering girl character with a fresh and distinctive take on the world.

Ten-year-old Darcy is one of life’s noticers. Curious, smart-as-a-whip, funny and fiercely loyal, she sees the extraordinary in the everyday and the wonder in the world around her.

Written and illustrated by Laura Dockrill: author, poet & performer – think Lady Gaga meets Mother Goose


When Trying

To start this review honestly, I have to admit that it was a long time ago that I finished this book. While it is still clear in my head, I am apologising if I get any of the important details wrong as I have read a lot of books since I finished this one. However, the one thing that I continue to remember about this book was how much I enjoyed it. This is a middle grade book that is full of light humour that will have you giggling often. It is the perfect read for young readers but I feel that older readers would still find it to be a lovely read. It simply reminds you of how we once saw the world and everything within it.

To Make Sense

This book starts out with the main protagonist, Darcy, admitting that she is running away – this time for real – but when her actions still don’t have the desired effect on her parents, she comes tromping back home. This is the perfect way to get a look at Darcy and the life she leads. Darcy is the kind of character who isn’t malicious, but simply wants a little bit of attention and this is what really brings the plot of this book alive. This is Darcy’s story, and you can’t help but want to know what will happen and how it will all end. I enjoyed so many aspects of this plot but my favourite is how Darcy feels about her little sister, and what happens to her at an audition.

Of The World

If you haven’t guessed yet, I really loved Darcy in this book. She was a truly loveable character who had grand views on the world. I loved how she saw things and the way she looked at the world and in a way, wish I still looked at the world like that. She was a girl with a vibrant personality, was incredibly friendly, protective, but someone who also had a sort fuse. I enjoyed that she was also a writer and loved all of the little mini-stories within this book and all the different morals that they brought to it. I definitely think this book wouldn’t have been quite as enjoyable without Darcy.

We Must Do

Aside from Darcy, it was Laura Dockrill’s writing style that helped to make this book so likable. Having met Laura, I can tell that how she is as a person equates to her writing style. It is random, it is loud, and it is full of personality. In this way, Darcy truly came alive on the page and that is always something that is great to see and read. I loved how easily Laura got inside Darcy’s mind, and how all of the mini-stories wrapped neatly around the story as a whole. It was all just so brilliantly written and I can imagine that many young children will be waiting impatiently for Laura’s next book.

It Our Way

In conclusion, it is clear to see that I found this book to be truly entertaining. It had me giggling, it had me sitting in awe, and it made me think, and these are things I love books making me do. There were also moments when I was close to shedding a tear and wanting to put my arms around Darcy and make everything better again. It was a wonderful read that I would easily recommend for others. So, if you’re in the mood for a light-hearted read, a character you’ll instantly fall in love with, and a story full of ups and downs, twists and turns, then you should definitely give this book a go. I promise, you won’t regret it!

Book Tour Review; Gripped by Jason Donnelly

Posted on 15 November, 2013 by Faye - 6 Comments

PE Triumvirate Badge

Hey Guys!
Today I am here to share with you all my review of Gripped by Jason Donnelly as part of his blog tour! I also have a giveaway for you all! You just need to follow the instructions at the bottom of the review.
Good Luck!

Summary:
Hi, friend.

Have you ever read an advertisement and felt like it was written directly to you? Well, what if it was? And if I told you that there’s an underground group telling you and those around you what to buy, what to wear, and what to consume?

Join the fun. The only thing holding you back is your own personality.

We recommend that you read Gripped with a nice bottled water.


If You Are

When I got the e-mail to participate in this tour, I knew that I shouldn’t sign up as I have too many books to read as it is but then I started reading the sample chapters on Goodreads and found that while it was a little graphic, it actually made me laugh. Thus, I continued reading until I found that I really wanted to know where the story was going to take me and so I made sure to get involved with the book tour. Now, having read the book, I am really glad that I did. While parts of the book made me feel a little uncomfortable, I was fully invested in this story and the mystery surrounding it. When I finished, I couldn’t help but feel like I needed more straight away. I will mention now, however, that this book is an adult book and not YA.

Reading This

How would you deal with it if you walked into an apartment and there was an advert designed specifically for you? With it talking directly to you and, without you even being aware, you’re signed up to take part of this program? When it keeps going well and makes you feel happier and more whole as a person, you’re unlikely to start questioning the program, right? I loved the concept of this book because I know that I would be far too anxious to just do whatever I was told. I loved how it gave you just enough information to keep you on your toes but never too much information to bore you. It was brilliant and you can easily see that Jason Donnelly knows how to keep the suspense building.

Then Your Personality

I want to say that it took a while for me to like the main protagonist of this book but I cannot. Even with his flaws, Mark is an interesting character to read about from the get go. I enjoyed his narrative and feel that his personality is really the main reason that I kept reading. On the other hand, I disliked Emily from the first moment that we met her and my opinion on that did not change throughout the book – but I am definitely curious about her! Finally, the people behind the program were full of mystery and helped to bring a tonne of suspense to the book. I love how distrusting of everyone you feel by the end of the book.

Is About To

One of the main reasons I was able to easily read this book was because of the writing style. Jason Donnelly has a very natural style that easily sucks you in and keeps you hostage. It flowed off the page well and just brought Mark to life in a very realistic way that I really enjoyed. I also felt that the setting of this book helped to make it more enjoyable as it was set in today’s world but there was a twist that definitely had me intrigued. I certainly found this book to be well-written ad I can only hope this is not the only book Jason writes!

Be Made Better

Overall, this book was one that I found myself enraptured in. It leaves you with many questions and sort of throws you through a loop as well, which not many books do. I also finished the book questioning the world we live in, which is always something that I think is empowering in a book. The characters of this book feel real, the mystery keeps you on the edge, and the writing style pulls you in quickly and keeps its hold on you. This is definitely a book that I would recommend you to read, especially if you enjoy books that tell it how it is and provide you with a truly compelling story. And, to finish in the corniest way possible, this book literally gripped me from start to end.

Four Stars

Netgalley November Update #2

Updates

Hey Guys!
Can you believe that the second week of November is already over? Seriously… when did that happen?

Anyway…

As it is now the third friday of the month I am sharing with you all how my goals for this event are going.

Goals

So, I set out to read 4-6 books for this challenge, and I also want to try to get my statistics up to at least 45%. It’s nowhere near what it needs to be but it should be a start.

Progress

In this second week I have still only read ONE book. I am now 70% done with reading;

Control

I was planning to finish this book on Wednesday but while it is a book that is totally gripping me, I’ve also been on the verge of a reading slump with my brain telling me I could be doing better things (what?)
To counter-act that, I started the first re-read I have ever done since blogging! I am reading the audiobook of Harry Potter and the Philospher’s Stone!
I also finished the non-netgalley book I was reading last week!

My stats are at 37.5% so I still have a little way to go before I reach 45%.


And that’s all of my progress report complete! How are you doing with your goals?
Feel free to simply comment below or add your post link to the linky!
I will do my best to visit and comment on everyone’s updates!

Book Review; Resist by Sarah Crossan (Breathe #2)

Posted on 13 November, 2013 by Faye - 1 Comment

resist2Author: Sarah Crossan
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Published: 10th October 2013
Pages: 300
Format: Paperback
Source:: Netgalley
Add It: Goodreads, Amazon UK, TBD

Summary:
Resistance to the Pod Leadership has come apart. The Grove has been destroyed but so has the Pod Minister. Quinn, Bea and Alina separately must embark on a perilous journey across the planet’s dead landscape in search of the rumoured resistance base Sequoia. Meanwhile the Pod Minister has been succeeded by his capricious daughter. Her brother, Ronan, is supposed to advise her, but his doubts about the regime lead to him being sent out of the Pod in search of Quinn. In a world in which the human race is adapting to survive with little air, the stakes are high.


With Every Breath

As this is the second book in a duology, I was both excited and worried about reading this book. I loved Breathe (review) and I really wanted Resist to live up to its high expectations but as the last book in a series, it also has a lot to live up to on its own as well. Therefore I was worried that it may ruin the series, which is why it took me so long to get around to reading. Fortunately, however, I am here to report that this book was a wonderful read and was the perfect way to end this series.

You Take

One of the hardest things about the last book in a series, even just a duology, is making sure that all of the loose ends are tied up and there is still enough action and conflict in the book to keep it entertaining. So I was really happy when Resist managed both of these. I really enjoyed the plot of this book. I thought it flowed really well and kept up the suspense that arrived in the first book. Sarah Crossan has really managed to write a brilliant second and last novel that I am sure many fans will really love to read. There is always just enough going on to keep the reader wanting to continue.

You’re One Step

Once more it is clear to see that Sarah has put a lof of work into her characters to make sure they feel realistic, are strong and likeable. I loved the addition of Jude to the narratives in this book. He was a great fresh voice and I admired how much courage and humanity he had in him. Cain Knavery really grew as a character in this book and I have to say I was glad to see it. Bea was amazing in this story. I loved seeing how much stronger she had become and how much she was willing to sacrifice for a better life for everyone. Quinn was super protective in this story and a true problem-solver. I really enjoyed reading about him. But it was Alina that stole my heart in this book. She was caring, kind, strong, protective, and incredibly powerful and loyal. She really grew and developed and quickly become one of my favourite characters in this series.

Closer To

I feel it is important to mention here the ending of the novel and series. As stated above, I feel that Sarah did a great job with it and mostly I just wanted to reiterate that. There were many ways and places that Sarah could have taken this book but I feel like how it all came together was just the best way to end it. She tied everything together, brought a little hope to the reader, and didn’t shy away from the hard decisions. It made the entire series worth reading, which is exactly what we want. I also feel it is worth mentioning that I still truly love the concept of this series and how it was used throughout the entire story. Honestly, could you imagine what life would be like if air wasn’t just there but something that you, essentially, had to pay for or earn the right to have? Or learn to live without so much of it? It’s a resource that we always take for granted but I love that these books really make you think about that.

The Very End

In case you haven’t seen it yet, I really enjoyed this book! It was just as compelling as the first book, had a tonne of action, and enough emotions for me to sort through. It had its fun moments within all the horror and worry and Sarah has just done a marvellous job of keeping the reader interested in this story. If you have yet to read the first one in this duology, please go and do it now. And if you have, don’t forget to read this one! It is a wonderful book that I am sure you will enjoy and be glad that you read!

Book Review; Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Summary:
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

I really enjoyed this book and it was the last one in the duology and it was just a brilliant ending. I will be posting my full review of it by the end of next week (hopefully).

I also started reading

Control

I was planning on starting Broken by A. C. Rought but then I was out and about with my iPod and no wifi and I had Control already downloaded but not Broken and thus I just started reading that instead.
I am also in the middle of one non-netgalley book which is for a book tour I’m participating in next week!

Unfortunately, however, because I went on Netgalley to update my review of Geek Girl 2, I also naturally went searching and ended up finding two books to request and one I have been approved for so my stats still sit at 36%. Hopefully when I get my review of Resist up that will change.

New Rule

It also made me realise that throughout the month of November, I should not request anymore books on Netgalley and so I am banning myself from doing so!

Book Review; Geek Girl: Model Misfit by Holly Smale

Posted on 7 November, 2013 by Faye - 7 Comments

18065780Author: Holly Smale
Publisher: Harper Collins
Published: 26th September 2013
Pages: 356
Format: e-book

Summary:
“My name is Harriet Manners, and I am still a geek.”

Harriet knows that modelling won’t transform you. She knows that being as uniquely odd as a polar bear isn’t necessarily a bad thing (even in a rainforest). And that the average person eats a ton of food a year, though her pregnant stepmother is doing her best to beat this.

What Harriet doesn’t know is where she’s going to fit in once the new baby arrives.

With summer plans ruined, modelling in Japan seems the perfect chance to get as far away from home as possible. But nothing can prepare Harriet for the craziness of Tokyo, her competitive model flatmates and her errant grandmother’s ‘chaperoning’. Or seeing gorgeous Nick everywhere she goes.

Because, this time, Harriet knows what a broken heart feels like.

Can geek girl find her place on the other side of the world or is Harriet lost for good?


When Every

As soon as I had finished reading Geek Girl, I knew that I simply needed to get my hands on the second book in the series. I also knew that if it was anything like the first one that I would lap it up easily and hungrily. Thus, I am incredibly pleased to report – no, really, I am – that Geek Girl: Model Misfit exceeded my expectations in the best possible ways. I was instantly sucked into this story, felt emotions I haven’t really felt since I was fifteen and just found myself devouring the book as one would devour a very good piece of cake.

Move You Make

In the first book, Harriet’s career takes her to Russia where her usual flailing self ended up almost ruining everything before it had even really started. In this book Harriet ends up in Japan, seemingly without any parental help. How this works in this book is that Harriet tries incredibly hard to make things work, to be adult about every situation and to make sure that every shoot works perfectly but, as is the case with her unfortunate self, it doesn’t ever go according to plan. I loved the plot of this book. I loved how Harriet goes through each little thing in different disastrous ways and I love that it is her character that allows the plot to flow the way it does without her being any the wiser. This had me feeling very emotional – both with laughter and tears – continuously throughout the book and for that I can only give Holly Smale my ultimate props.

Causes Damage

If it wasn’t stated enough in my review of Geek Girl, or noticeable enough in the above paragraph, I adore Harriet Manners. I think she is such a great character who has flaws all over her but is also incredibly caring, friendly, protective, brave, geeky and sensitive, and I just always enjoy reading about her. She is the kind of person I would definitely be friends with. In this book, I also found that I really liked Rin and Toby. They’re great people and it is easy to see what Harriet sees in them! I also just love how they symbolize friendship in all its different forms and disguises. I love how Holly has created this characters to feel rich and raw, allowing all of their quirks and flaws to come to light but also showing that it’s okay not to be perfect, because let’s face it, nobody is!

What Do

This book is set in Japan. It is about a girl who becomes a model. A girl who has a modelling career. It is a story that should be hard to relate to and yet, Holly Smale has managed to make the entire story relatable because it is simply a story about a girl. It is someone who is fifteen. It is about someone who has friendships that go up and down. It is about someone who makes mistakes that sometimes leads to disasters and it is about someone who feels everything deep within her soul. This is why I enjoyed this story so much. It is why I enjoyed Geek Girl, and it is why I am sitting with abated breath for the third book in this series. Holly Smale has a style that brings her world to life and makes you reflect upon your own reality. It is simply a stunning book that you can’t help but feel every single kind of emotion for.

You Do?

Just in case you haven’t quite worked it out yet, I fell in love with this book. It was laugh out loud funny with a large mix of sadness, cringe-worthyness and made you simply want to hug the main character and help her in any way you can. It was nostalgic because it really felt like Harriet was a real person. It was rich and it was raw and it had everything you could really want in a book. If you haven’t read the first book, I am begging you to go and do it. And if you have read it, I beg for you to read this one as well. It is the perfect second book for this series and all I can really say is please let me have more!
