Reached (Matched)

Review:

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to finish what I started.  There are so many series that I have started, enjoyed, but never revisited and read subsequent volumes.  It’s rather depressing, really, how far behind I’ve fallen.  I loved Matched, liked Crossed, and so I decided to wrap-up Ally Condie’s Matched trilogy.  After a short wait on the hold list, my borrowed copy arrived at the library.  How did I like the final volume of the series?  Read on to see!

Today I have a special guest!  Please welcome Pandora Wyatt, who will give guidance on what NOT to do on a pirate ship.

Five Things Never to do Aboard a Pirate Ship

Written by Pandora Wyatt from

TANGLED HEARTS by Heather McCollum

Hello! My name is Pandora or Dory (which I prefer as the latter refers to the infamous box). I was raised upon the pirate ship, Queen Siren, captained by my adopted father, Captain Bartholomew Wyatt. Before my mother died after giving birth to me aboard his ship, she pleaded with him not to take me back to England. Despite his roguish appearance, Captain Bart is a gentleman and was already in the habit of rescuing wee ones, so he honored her request.

Review: Forever by Karen Ann Hopkins

Review:

Let the Drama Fest begin!  And, sadly, end, in the last book of Karen Ann Hopkins’s series of forbidden love.  Rose and Noah make so many poor decisions, cause so much misery for themselves, but I can’t help but hope that they find a path to happiness.  Both of them have lied, acted in ways that they know is wrong, and I still sympathize with them.  Their families, and Noah’s community, conspire to keep them apart, when all they long for is to be together.  Because both are young and willful, they are determined to find a way to be together, even with so much opposition to their relationship.  After tragedy strikes, Noah realizes that life is too short to allow his community to drive him away from Rose, and he leaves the Amish church.  Will he be happy in the English world?
