Waiting on Wednesday: Literally by Lucy Keating

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where you talk about whatever book you are IMPATIENTLY WAITING for!

This week I am waiting for...


Literally
A girl realizes her life is being written for her in this unique, smart love story that is Stranger Than Fiction for fans of Stephanie Perkins.

Annabelle’s life has always been Perfect with a capital P. Then bestselling young adult author Lucy Keating announces that she’s writing a new novel—and Annabelle is the heroine. 

It turns out, Annabelle is a character that Lucy Keating created. And Lucy has a plan for her. 

But Annabelle doesn’t want to live a life where everything she does is already plotted out. Will she find a way to write her own story—or will Lucy Keating have the last word? 

The real Lucy Keating’s delightful contemporary romance blurs the line between reality and fiction, and is the perfect follow-up for readers who loved her debut Dreamology, which SLJ called, “a sweet, quirky romance with appealing characters.”
Release Date: April 11th 2017




Why am I waiting?

REVIEW: Saven Disclosure by Siobhan Davis



Saven Disclosure (Saven #2)THE TRUTH CAN'T HIDE FOREVER

To protect Logan, I have no choice but to deceive him. 
But I’m not the only one hiding the truth. 
Will our love survive all the secrets and lies? 

Enemy alien ships crowd the skies over Earth while the world waits with bated breath. The Saven have been exposed, and where once they were abhorred, they are now championed as our greatest ally and our only possible savior.

Logan and Sadie have been separated, and the longer he is gone, the more their love is tested by duty, doubts, and deception.

Sadie and Jarod have infiltrated the highest levels of government, but they are playing a dangerous game. Surrounded by people with conflicting agendas—hell-bent on using her for their own aim—Sadie is confused when the lines between good and evil are blurred. It’s impossible to tell friend from foe, and no one can be trusted.

When the full extent of the experiments taking place in Sector Twenty is disclosed, Sadie can no longer sit back and watch as the lower classes face a horrific fate. Racing to save her loved ones and mankind, she risks her own safety and the love she’s waited a lifetime for to do the right thing.

But no one thought to save her from herself. 



MY THOUGHTS
Saven Deception was a fantastic start to the series, and I enjoyed it, but this book was even better!

As much as I enjoyed the first book, I enjoyed this one even more! This book felt much more complex and even more action-packed than book one! This book took the ideas from book one even further, giving more of an insight into the Savens! And so much happens in this book! So many twists and turns, and, boy, I didn't see that ending coming!

Like book one, I liked Sadie. Sadie is a fantastic MC, but she is a very different person than she was in book one. In book one we are introduced to a girl who grew up in a horrible environment with a family that didn't love her. Though she was still strong and defiant. In book two, she's even stronger and has an amazing group of friends to help her. All of the characters in this book, good and bad, are well-rounded!

My main problem with book one was the romance. The romance in book one was a bit fast and the on and off again relationship was frustrating. In this book, I actually found the romance less frustrating. I was able to root for them in this book! Though, in true sequel fashion, the couple is separated most of the book.

Annnnnnd, the ending! Man was that a cliffhanger!


IN CONCLUSION
This was a fantastic sequel! It's not often that you come across a sequel that can beat it's predecessor! I will definitely be continuing this series, especially after that ending, and I look forward to more by Siobhan Davis!
I hereby give this book
4 Stars!
Meaning: It was amazing!

Explanations, Excuses, and Apologies

Hello! Long time no see! You may or may not have noticed that I've been kind of, well, gone lately. I haven't posted as many reviews, commented on very many blogs, or even read as many books. I'm sorry about the lack of posting and I'm sorry if I didn't comment on your blog recently (though I have read your posts, just a few weeks late. I've been horrible at checking email). There is a reason for this, I got a job. At least, for the summer.

At the beginning of June, I started working at the Cosmosphere, a space museum an hour away from where I live. I'm working as a camp counselor for their space camps. All the counselors live in the community college dorms (without having to pay) as well as having most meals provided for them, so it's a pretty good deal. It also has it's fun moments.

But I've been very busy. I work different camps one after another and, oftentimes, I work twelve hours a day. I've never really had a job that took up this much time, and while I do have some free time, that's mostly spent trying to read or taking a nap. I've never really understood how bloggers are able to have full-time jobs, children, read lots of books, and blog daily. I have a great appreciation for them.

As of now, I have two weeks left of work. Then I'll be moving into by new apartment and starting my junior year of college in a new school. At the end of July, I'll get to start getting back into blogging mood.

Until then, it's back to work!
