Review:The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

Song Of The Moment- Coming For Youby The Offspring

6931356The DUFF
by Kody Keplinger
Release date: 2010
Genre: YA Contemporary
Goodreads Link
Description -
Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn’t think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face. 

But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.
Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out Wesley isn’t such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she’s falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.

My Rating:

Okay, so...I had issues reviewing this book. I wasn't going to at first because I'm really conflicted and didn't really think I had much to say about it but...I'll give it a try anyway. Let's go for short and sweet!

A Few Of My Favorite Things:

- The uniqueness of it. This book is really unique and refreshing. Bianca is such a cynical character with one of the most unique voices I've ever read. She's a misfit and she owns it, she's fine being her cynical self and even when the name DUFF bothers her, she refuses to change because of it.

- Bianca. I both loved and hated this character. I loved her because she's unique and doesn't care what people think of her but will defend and fight for her friends and family if it's someone judging them. She's...spunky, and personality wise, I really related to her.

- Jess/Casey - I loved Bianca's best friends. They were awesome and so much fun. I wish they'd been a bigger part though.

- Wesley Rush. I hated him. I despised him. I loved him. Basically, everything Bianca felt for him. This author definitely has talent when it comes to making you feel for her characters.

- The writing. It's such fast paced fluid writing, where Bianca's voice comes out in every single word.

A Few Of My Not So Favorite Things:

- Their relationship. This is my biggest problem with this book and, let me say right here, this is strictly personal preference, it's not really a fault of the book and is strictly my personal opinions and preferences. How to say it? Their whole relationship(and the book in general) is based off a purely..physical relationship. Now, it does grow to be swoon-worthy, and I grew to love them, but, I don't like that in a book. Now, this didn't really hindered my enjoyment of the book(for the most part), had I known about it though, purely because I'm a slight prude when it comes to this kind of stuff, I probably wouldn't have read it, which is why I mention it.

- Bianca. I liked her, I did. But she made so many stupid decisions. Sure, she's human, she can make mistakes, and I understood all of them about her dad and family situation. I did not like her decision to repeatedly sleep with Wesley, lie to and abandon her friends, and then in the end she suddenly(hold on, SPOILER ALERT, status: minor) has this big revelation that oh. I'm stupid. I could've of gotten pregnant. Dumb, Bianca, don't sleep with Wesley or anyone anymore. Like...what? It took you that long to figure this out!?

Overall. I really did enjoy this book, it was lots of fun and a really quick read. Most of what I had a problem with, again, comes down to my personal feelings on these subjects. However, I loved the writing, I loved Bianca, and yeah. I definitely recommend it, and even though I've heard the movie is quite a bit different than the book I look forward to seeing it.

Would I Recommend This? Yes.
Whom To? Contemporary fans, and people who love a good cynical character.
Will I read more from this author(or series)? Yeah, definitely.

My OTPs aka Ships I Do Ship #1

Yay, a new feature!

So, for a few months now I've been doing a feature I call Ships I Don't Ship, where I talk about fictional relationships that I just do not like, two weeks ago I revamped it with Ships I Don't Ship #4 and this week I'm starting a feature that is the opposite of that! Meaning I will be talking about my OTPs(one true pairing) otherwise known as fictional relationships I obsess over. =)

Shipping: The act of wanting, nay needing, two characters to be together. Believing with every inch of your heart and soul that two characters belong together, whether it's that way in the book/tv show/movie or not.
Example: I ship Harry and Draco so hard, they just belong together!

OTPs: One True Pairing or a set of fictional characters that you believe, no matter what, belong together whether it was ever a real option in the book or not.
Example: Katniss and Peeta are my ultimate OTP

Han and Raisa (Seven Realms, Cinda Chima)
Han "Cuffs" Alister and Princess Raisa ana’Marianna
Statues: OTP level shipping

From: The Seven Realms series
Spoilers? No! This will be spoiler free!

Why I Think They Belong Together:

- They just do!... Not good enough?

- They counter balance each other very well. They both tend to act without thinking, Han most of all, but together they help each other balance out.

- They don't hold each other back. They're both very strong willed, unique individuals and they both know that to be together they have to give each other room. Han doesn't try to stop her from doing what she needs to do and likewise for her.

- Because chemistry. What? It's very important and they definitely have it. They have great back and forth, and just. Yeah.

- Because they don't let each other get away with anything. Again, they both tend to act without thinking and when that happens they aren't afraid to let the other know how stupid it was.

- Because Han likes her for her, long before he knows she's a princess. And she's willing to put up with his pigheadedness.

- Because they will do anything for each other even if it means they don't end up together.

Quote(s) That Prove It:
“So here's the truth - I love you. I love everything about you – the way you stick up for people even when it costs you. The way you keep trying to do the right thing even when you're not exactly sure what the right thing is. I love how you put words together. You're as skilled with words as any knife fighter with a blade. You can put an enemy down on his back, or you can raise people up so they find what's best in themselves. You've changed my life. You've given me the words I need to become whatever I want.
I love how you talk to lytlings. You don't talk down to them. You respect them, and anybody can tell you're actually interested in what they have to say.
I love the way you ride a horse – how you stick there like an upland thistle, whooping like a Demonai. I love the way you throw back your head and stomp your feet when you dance. I love how you go after what you want – whether it's kisses or a queendom.
I love your skin, like copper dusted over with gold. And your eyes – they're the color of a forest lake shaded by evergreens. One of the secret places that only the Demonai know about.
I love the scent of you – when you've been out in the fresh air, and that perfume you put behind your ears sometimes.
Believe it or not, I even love your road smell – of sweat and horses and leather and wool.

I want to breathe you in for the rest of my life.” 

“Han smiled, then, a bright, charming smile that lit up the room, more dangerous than any blade. 

All you ever needed was that smile, she thought. I'd have given in immediately.” 

This Ship was also featured in my Bookish Mind control feature last week where I try to convince you all to read this series! Check it out here!

So, there's one of my number one OTPS, let me know one (or more) of yours in the comments below!

Now, both Ships I DO Ship and Ships I Don't Ship are going to be monthly features here and I've been thinking (and some people have mentioned) that it would be cool to have guest posts for these too. So that other bloggers can talk about a ship they do or don't ship... I really want to do this so, if you'd be interested please let me know in the comments so I can figure out if it would be worth it and how exactly to set it up!

Top Ten Tuesday #49: Top 10 Comic Book Heroines

Song Of The Moment - Away From The Sun by 3 Doors Down
Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

This weeks topic is:  "Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books (Or you could pick movies/tv)"

So, I thought I'd do something a little different this week and list out my top favorite heroines from comics instead of books! I don't really talk about it much here but I love comics, and I've been reading a lot recently so this is perfect really!

Top Ten Heroines From Comic books:

winged super hero
10. Hawkgirl
First of all, she tends to fight with a spear or mace, can you be more awesome than that? I admit, most of what I've read of her is in the bigger events(Flashpoint, Injustice, etc.) but she's awesome.

Storm by calvinloveinternet
9. Storm (and Rogue)
Storm and Rogue tie for my favorite X-Men. Storm is like the epitome of badass, she's a great, strong leader and an epic fighter. Rogue is a very...complex character that I tend to hate and love at the same time.

I don't know what it is about this drawing of Catwoman, but I absolutely adore it!  By: Artgerm on deviantArt
8. Cat Woman 
Okay, so she's kind of an antihero but I prefer to think of her like Robin Hood...okay?

deviantART Picks 9/28/2014 Weekend Edition #BlackCanary #DC | Images Unplugged

7. Black Canary
Don't even get me started on how badass she is in Injustice(okay, I'm kind of obsessed with this set of comics). I admit, I'm a little disappointed in the version of her that's in Arrow(the TV Show), cause she's so much more badass in the comics, and just in general I hate both Lance sisters in the show. (but, the costume is definitely better in the show, do you know how hard it was to find a picture where you didn't see her ass? Despicable!)

Raven - Teen Titans by *Markus-MkIII on deviantART

6. Raven
I admit, my love for Raven stems from the old Teen Titian's show, but still. Not only does she look freaky awesome but she has epic powers! I feel like I can say this about every person I mention, but she's badass.

These Watercolors Distill Superheroes to Their Very Essence

5. Black Widow
Dude, if you've seen the Avengers movies then you know why she's here.
4. Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttercup
What!? Powerpuff Girl comics count!

elektra by on @deviantART

3. Elektra
She's a ninja assassin, need I say more?

Batgirl sketch by Alvin Lee
2. Barbra Gordon: Batgirl, Oracle
Not only is she an awesome fighter but she's also so smart! That's the thing I love most about this character is she's so intelligent(and badass).

Harley Quinn Poster by SkeletonsL1ve on Etsy, $25.00
1. Harley Quinn
Yes, I know. My number one is technically a villain, but is she? Okay, yes. But in the Injustice storyline she's not always and she's crazy and awesome and I can't explain my love for her, okay!?

So, that's my, slightly different, top ten post, make sure to link me yours in the comments below and let me know if you have a favorite comic book heroine!

Long Live Book Tags

Today I'm going to be doing two book tags, the first is the Taylor Swift book tag hence the name of this post which is Long Live(my favorite Taylor Swift song!). I've been wanting to do this tag forever and the lovely Shannon @ It Starts At Midnight tagged me so now I can finally do it!

The Taylor Swift Book Tag:

(Pick a book (or book series) that you were pretty sure you were in love with, but then wanted to break up with)

I loved this series for a long time, the first three books are amazing and so much fun, it's all about kids with wings trying to save the world but with the fourth book it just gets...weird. Everything starts being about global warming and it just goes downhill. I hated the last book and now even more are coming out and just, no. Let it go man! Let it go.
80698282. ‘RED’
(Pick a book with a RED cover)

281873. The Best Day

(a book that makes you feel nostalgic)
 This was the series that got me into reading and is still my absolute favorite series.

63424914. Love Story
(pick a book with forbidden love)
It's not the forbidden-est love ever, but I do love it!

131040805. I Knew You Were Trouble
(pick a book with a bad character you couldn’t help but love)
Warner... *swoon*

1362516. Innocent
(pick a book that someone ruined the ending for)

184603927. Everything Has Changed
(pick a character from a book who goes through extensive character development)

Violet grows so much in this book and loved seeing it all. I ended up liking her so much more by the end and she's awesome.

237346288. You Belong With Me
(pick your most anticipated book release)

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell, I have seriously never been so excited for a book. If I were to do waiting on Wednesday posts from now until this came out I would put this book down every single time.

15749186 9. Forever and Always
(pick your favorite book couple)

Lara Jean and Peter forever!

10. Come Back, Be Here
(pick the book you would least like to lend out, for fear of missing it too much)

Hmm, I don't really lend out books that often, but I guess I'd least want to lend out my signed ARC of Cress by Marissa Meyer because I love it too much!


2275425411. Teardrops On My Guitar
(pick a book that made you cry a lot)

I was on the verge of tears for most of this book.

959391312. Shake It Off
(pick a book that you love so much, you just shake off the haters)

I know a lot of people weren't fans of how this series ended, but  I loved it, it was my favorite of the series and I love it!

And next is the Sisterhood Of The World Blogger's Award which I was tagged/nominated for by the awesome Cynthia @ Bingeing On Books!

1. If you were a character in a book, who would you be and why? Hard question, awesome but hard! I've always thought I was a lot like Charlie from On The Fence by Kasie West or Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Cath because I am super shy, love to write, and live my life in books. Charlie because I've grown up with two older brothers and am a giant tomboy who's quite often struggled with being "girly" because of it, even when I want to.

136023582. What are you reading right now? I am currently reading Froi Of The Exiles by Melina Marchetta and am obsessed with this trilogy(I want it to last forever!!!)

3. Who is your favorite author? At the moment? Melina Marchetta. All time though I have to go with Rick Riordan!

4. Describe your favorite reading spot. Probably my bed, which has like a dozen pillows and blankets(I like to be cozy), a Harry Potter comforter and, usually, two cats!

5. What is your favorite book to movie adaptation? Percy Jackson...haha joking, that's my least favorite. I actually really love I Am Number Four, but my favorite would probably have to be the Hobbit movies, I just love them so much!

6. What do you like most about blogging? Tags! No, all the other awesome bloggers, I love reading other blogs and commenting and everything.

7. Which book do you recommend the most and why? At the moment, Finnikin Of The Rock because it's an epic fantasy book and, honestly, one of the best I've read. I also recommend Percy Jackson all the time!

8. Do you prefer coffee or tea? I love tea but I'm going to have to go with coffee.

9. Fun fact about yourself! I have two tattoos! I feel like I use this a lot, but I like to brag about them! I have a Mockingjay on my shoulder and a golden snitch on my wrist!

(this are both old pics, from right after I got them. It's surprisingly hard to take a picture of your own shoulder!)

10. Rough estimate, how many books are in your TBR pile? Real life TBR? Around 90.

Thanks, Cynthia and Shannon for the tags!

I'm only tagging for the Taylor Swift book tag, mostly because I'm too lazy to come up with more questions for the Sisterhood one and I think I've tagged people twice for it anyway! For the Taylor Swift one, I have no idea who has and hasn't done it so sorry if I tag you again!

I tag:

Jillian @ Jillian's Books
Val @ The Innocent Smiley
Cynthia @ Bingeing On Books

So, if you were a character in a book who would you be?

Sunday Post: It's Sunday Again!

Song Of The Moment - Shut Up and Dance by Walk The Moon

The Sunday Post

Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted over at Caffeinated Book Reviewer

This is a meme where every Sunday you can share what's been going this week in your life and on your blog! It's also good for bragging about all your new lovely books!

Things were pretty normal this week, I did have a cold for a couple days that sucked and made me even further behind with replying to comments, not that I wasn't already behind, I was. So, yes, I'm very behind blogging wise and have no plan for next week besides my first OTP post aka Ships I Do Ship, a brand new feature!

Reading wise, I'm almost done with Froi Of The Exiles by Melina Marchetta but I've been purposefully reading it really slow, like setting a limit of only so many chapters a day, to make it last longer. I read Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things To Mend. And then I read a lot of comics. Like...36 single issue comics... =D

Recently On The Blog
I reviewed Zodiac by Stan Lee, shared my top 10 Book Related Problems, revealed a new feature called Bookish Mind Control where I try to convince everyone to read one of my favorite series. And then, reviewed Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things To Mend.

On my writing blog Grace&Steele(I'm Steele) I talked about the enemy that is self-doubt and icky feelings, and then shared my reasons why you should use Pinterest and finding inspiration.

My name reveal giveaway, where you can win on of my favorite fantasy books, is still going on so make sure to enter before time runs out! Enter here!

That's all for me this week. How was yours?

Review: Broken Hearts, Fences, And Other Things To Mend by Katie Finn

Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend (Broken Hearts & Revenge, #1)Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things To Mend
by  Katie Finn
Release date: May 2014
Genre: YA Contemporary
Goodreads Link
Description -
Hot sun. Blue waves. New romances. Old secrets.

Gemma had her summer all planned out, but it takes a sharp turn when she gets dumped and finds herself back in the Hamptons after a five-year absence.

Being there puts her at risk of bumping into Hallie, her former best friends (that is, before Gemma ruined her life). But people don't hold grudges forever. Do they?

Gemma intends on making amends, but a small case of mistaken identity causes the people she knew years ago—including Hallie and her dreamy brother, Josh—to believe she's someone else. As though the summer wasn't complicated enough already.

Filled with summer sun, boys, and friendships gone sour, Katie Finn's first novel in the Broken Hearts and Revenge series sizzles and delights.

My Rating:
4 Stars - I really enjoyed it.

Gemma's summer is off to a bad start when her boyfriend of two years dumps her in Target. Shipped off to the Hamptons to spend the summer with her father Gemma's only hope is that she won't run into Hallie, the girl she befriended the last time she was in the Hamptons. The girl who's life she'd tried and possibly succeeded in ruining.

This book was really fun, it's the perfect summer read and I really enjoyed it. This book is full of cringe-worthy moments, moments that make you laugh, and of course, sweet revenge. There's also a few secrets to make it even more interesting. 

A Few Of My Favorite Things:

- Revenge. The revenge aspect of this book was definitely the best part, you have all of Gemma's history with Hallie and all the bad things she did and then you have her trying to fix it and the whole time you're waiting for the other shoe to drop and when it does... It's so much better and worse than you thought it was going to be.

- Gemma. At first I wasn't a fan of the main character, she was way too dependant on Teddy, building her whole life around him and insisting that he's perfect. Then you find out all that she did that summer five years ago, and it's like, wow. That's evil. Even still, through all the mistakes she continues to make, she really grew on me. I think some people might still find her to be nothing but selfish(which I definitely felt that way a bit at the end) but I still really grew to like her.

Not So Favorite Things:

- The past. It was all very interesting, everything Gemma did, but I wanted the book to focus a little more on it. It's like Gemma was constantly telling herself that it, everything she was doing was about Hallie, but it always seemed like a lie.

- The ending. So, of course, it's an open ending. There's going to be two more books(which, really? I can see one more, but two!?), but the end was a little too short. The big reveal, while a tad bit shocking(not because I didn't see it coming but because it was even more than I'd thought, even bigger) was very short. And it seemed to revert to Gemma being selfish and only thinking of herself.

Overall: I found this to be a really enjoyable, fast-paced, easy read, and will definitely continue with the series.

Would I Recommend This? Yes.
Who To? People looking for a fun summery contemporary
Will I read more from this author(or series)? Yes.

What's your take on revenge plots in contemporary, yay or nay? I.e. Do you find that a lot of the time they're immature?
 Personally, I love revenge in a book even if it means that most the time it leads to bad things for the characters.

Bookish Mind Control: Take 1

This is a new monthly feature here where every month I feature one of my favorite books/series and convince you all to read it!

6342491Seven Realms
by Cinda Williams Chima

About: Times are hard in the mountain city of Fellsmarch. Reformed thief Han Alister will do almost anything to eke out a living for his family. The only thing of value he has is something he can't sell—the thick silver cuffs he's worn since birth. They're clearly magicked—as he grows, they grow, and he's never been able to get them off.

One day, Han and his clan friend, Dancer, confront three young wizards setting fire to the sacred mountain of Hanalea. Han takes an amulet from Micah Bayar, son of the High Wizard, to keep him from using it against them. Soon Han learns that the amulet has an evil history—it once belonged to the Demon King, the wizard who nearly destroyed the world a millennium ago. With a magical piece that powerful at stake, Han knows that the Bayars will stop at nothing to get it back.

Meanwhile, Raisa ana'Marianna, princess heir of the Fells, has her own battles to fight. She's just returned to court after three years of freedom in the mountains—riding, hunting, and working the famous clan markets. Raisa wants to be more than an ornament in a glittering cage. She aspires to be like Hanalea—the legendary warrior queen who killed the Demon King and saved the world. But her mother has other plans for her—including marriage to a suitor who goes against everything the queendom stands for.

The Seven Realms tremble when the lives of Hans and Raisa collide, fanning the flames of the smoldering war between clans and wizards. (-description of book 1, The Demon King)

Genre: YA, High Fantasy
Series: Seven Realms(The Demon King, The Exiled Queen, The Gray Wolf Throne, The Crimson Crown)

Reasons Why You Have To Read It:

78012291. Han "Cuffs" Alister *swoon*. He is one of my all time favorite characters, he's a criminal who wears silver "cuffs" around his wrists that he's had since he was basically born, but then all this stuff happens and he grows so much as a character. He's one of those characters that you can't help but fall in love with.

2. The world. It's such an awesome Fantasy world, and it's one of the most well-developed worlds I've ever read. Basically, it's fantastic.

3. The action. It has everything! Magic, evil people including an evil teenager who wants to marry the Princess and is bent on destroying Han. Political intrigue...sorta? Fighting and epic world building. It's been a while since I read these, but I do know that I wasn't once bored when I did.

94094694. Feels and swoons. Okay, you have forbidden love and a very very slight love triangle and all the swoony feels without it taking over the plot. Also, it's one of those romances where the couple doesn't become less when they're together, the girl is still badass and the boy knows enough to let her do her own thing. It's slow burning and drives you just a wee bit crazy. Everything I personally want in my fantasy books!

5. The writing. All I'm saying is, in my mind since I was like fourteen, I've thought of this author as the Queen of fantasy.

6. Characters! These books have some of my all time favorite characters. They're so well developed, you get to watch them kind of step up and take control and it's all so fascinating. Even the secondary characters, Fire Dancer and Digging Bird(why do I feel like I'm getting this name wrong?) and Cat and just...yeah. Even Micah who is kind of evil(not a spoiler revealed early on!) is epic, and all the others are also awesome.


- Long books!

- There is somewhat of a love triangle.

- There's going to be another series set 20 years later! Not a downside, I'm just so excited!

- It feels like a lie not to have any downsides, but I can't think of any!

Overall: Um, read it. If you love fantasy then you have to read this series because it's amazing.

Favorite Quote(s):

“Well, I believe she went in to rescue some Raggers from the pits,” Cuffs said. “She wasn’t all that specific.”
“She went in to rescue — why would she do that?” Amon gripped the ironwork, studying the streetlord’s face. Was he lying? And if so, what was the purpose?
“Guess she’s kind of taken with us,” Cuffs said. “You know, the glamor of the gang life and all. Getting beat up every other day, arrested for crimes you didn’t commit, long nights in gaol, sleeping in the cold and wet. It’s...seductive.” He raised an eyebrow.” 

―  The Demon King

"History,' Mari muttered, as if she'd overheard his thoughts. 'Why do we need to know what happened before we were born?' 

'So hopefully we get smarter and don't make the same mistakes again.” 

― The Demon King

“Just tell me you don't love me, and I'll let the matter drop."
"What I said. Just say, 'Rai, I don't love you and I never will'. It's that simple."
"Raisa, this is getting us nowhere."
"Say it!” 

― The Exiled Queen

"And it's not just a matter of you hurting me. I will hurt you too, even if I don't want to, I'm not the girl you think I am. And you will remember this conversation, and wish that you'd listened to me.” 

―The Exiled Queen

"I have lost everything, Han thought. Then he corrected himself. Every time I think I’ve lost everything, I find there’s still something else to lose.” 

― The Gray Wolf Throne

"Maybe the hardest lesson Han had learned was that nobody is purely bad or good. Everybody seemed to be a mixture of both.” 

―The Gray Wolf Throne

What kind of love would drive a man for miles through solid rock?” 

― The Crimson Crown

“Hope is a dangerous thing, Raisa thought. Once kindled, it's hard to put out. It makes wise people into fools.” 

― The Crimson Crown

Well, if nothing else I've convinced myself to reread the series!

So, tell me, what's a book or series that you wish you could make everyone read?

Top Ten Tuesday #48: Books cause...problems?

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

Today's topic is "Ten Book Related Problems I Have (could be serious or fun!)" I didn't really know what I wanted to do so I decided to wing it(thirty minutes before posting it!). =)

10 Book Related Problems/Problems Books Cause Me:

1. Too many books! There's just soooo many books that I MUST read!
(a very small portion of my real-life TBR)

2. Not enough time! I think we can all agree that time management is a real problem!
(notice the number of read and to read and the fact that I've been reading that book for a week because I have no time!)

3. Books break my heart! 

4. And then stomp on it a few times just for fun!

5. They give me all these...feelings. Seriously, what I am supposed to do with them!?!

6. They mess with my mind!
How...wha... I can't even!

7. They turn me into a crazy person! See everything above?

8. I can't stop talking about them!
Hence the blog!

9. They make me cry!
It hurts so much but it feels so...good.

10. Too many books(yeah right) not enough space(seriously!)

Tell me all about your book related problems! Happy Tuesday, and please do leave me links in the comments below!
