Top of 2011- day 5

A Life Bound by Books, Confessions of a Bookaholic, Two Chicks on Booksand Fiktshun came up with this great idea to celebrate the books we have read in 2011.

 today is the last day of this event it was a Whoot. if its annual count me in for next year. I met some great blogs and bloggers. Keep in touch all
   



books of 2012 i'm pining/ wishing for to get a copy of/some likely not but hopefully well. Here  they are in no particular order[had 2  cut a lot]












Above by Leah Bobet
Matthew has loved Ariel from the moment he found her in the tunnels, her bee's wings falling away. They live in Safe, an underground refuge for those fleeing the city Above--like Whisper, who speaks to ghosts, and Jack Flash, who can shoot lightning from his fingers.
But one terrifying night, an old enemy invades Safe with an army of shadows, and only Matthew, Ariel, and a few friends escape Above. As Matthew unravels the mystery of Safe's history and the shadows' attack, he realizes he must find a way to remake his home--not just for himself, but for Ariel, who needs him more than ever before.
look wings, a fae?, no there bee ish!!Huh new! and matthew seems sweet and dystopian like. i reallly want this one. so much cover love.









The Statistical Probability of LOVE at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything? 

Imagine if she hadn't fogotten the book. Or if there hadn't been traffic on the expressway. Or if she hadn't fumbled the coins for the toll. What if she'd run just that little bit faster and caught the flight she was supposed to be on. Would it have been something else - the weather over the atlantic or a fault with the plane? 

Hadley isn't sure if she believes in destiny or fate but, on what is potentially the worst day of each of their lives, it's the quirks of timing and chance events that mean Hadley meets Oliver... 

Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it

this will appear on a lot of list i assume. 4 min can change everything? huh i need 2 wait changes lol!! a lot of ppl belive in true love, i do to . Maybe i'm a hopeless romantic. Find me unrealistic , find by me. I love sweet cuddlely romance. I SO WAnt this one.





Storm by Brigid Kemmerer

Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—all the ones she doesn’t want. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death. 

And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca. 

Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all. 


Look really cool. brother bonding perhaps i dunno! realy. Cool cover and that Becca defends him is so sweet.. i really want this 1[i sound like a broken record lol]






Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

Emma and her friend Chloe are spending vacation in Florida. When Emma (literally) runs into a hot guy named Galen on the beach, little does she know he’s a prince of the Syrena. Galen and Emma both feel something strange – is it attraction? – and Galen suspects that Emma might well be the girl he’s heard of – a human who can communicate with fish. 

What follows is a deadly scene with a shark in which Galen witnesses Emma’s gifts. He must know more about her, and follows her back to New Jersey, and high school, to find out for sure if she’s the key to saving his kingdom. Soon, Emma can’t deny her feelings for him, but can’t explain them, either – and both she and Galen must learn more about where she comes from and what her powers are before they can trust one another and their feelings
i don't know really want to. I love tales of underwater people; fins or no fins.  A prince trying to save his kingdom. Loyal. i like that. He finds maybe the the salvation of his people!! hope everything works out. [broken rcord time] i really want this one to.




Something Like Normal by Trish Doller

When Travis Stephenson returns home from Afghanistan, his parents are on the brink of divorce, his brother has stolen his girlfriend and his car, and nightmares of his best friend getting killed keep him completely spooked. But when he runs into Harper Gray, a girl who despises him for trashing her reputation with a middle school lie, life actually starts looking up. As Travis and Harper see more of each other, he starts falling for her and a way through the family meltdown, the post-traumatic stress, and the possibility of an interesting future begins to emerge.

Like the sound of i watched ''Dear John'" this year. Found it warm felt and got fuzzy feelings inside. This a other take returning from Afghanistan. War really screws you up that why i like the tagline'' War is only half the battle''. The troops really need support. I so want this one badly



Fracture by Megan Miranda

Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine
-despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she's far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can't control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?

Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she's reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy's motives aren't quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature-or something much more frightening?

I really like the sound of this and the tagline ''a lot can happen in 11 minutes''. Lets find out, shall we!!


Riding out The Storm by Sis Deans

Zach is riding the Greyhound bus through a snowstorm to visit his older brother Derek, whom he hasn’t seen in seven months. That’s when their parents finally went broke paying Derek’s doctor’s bills and had to give him up as a ward of the state. Nothing—not drawing in his sketchbook, not basketball—lets Zach forget that his brother is living in a mental institution five states away. But surprisingly, sitting next to a talkative teenage girl he nicknames Purplehead starts to take the edge off Zach’s pain.

Prompted by a chain of unpredictable events and by the people he meets along the way, Zach’s cynical humor gives us a poignant look at medical insurance and health care systems for the mentally ill, and at the everyday fears, joys, and revelations of adolescence
.
Have not heard any buzz at all over this one. I like the title; brother in mental clinic , parents are broke. A though storm . All know it 's being published by Henry Holt & Company . Who 's the person in the background. His bro?

Gone, Gone, Gone by Hannah Moskowitz

It's a year after 9/11. Sniper shootings throughout the D.C. area have everyone on edge, trying to make sense of the random acts of violence. Meanwhile, Craig and Lio are just trying to make sense of their lives.

Craig's crushing on quiet, distant Lio, and preoccupied with what it meant when Lio kissed him...and if he'll do it again...and if kissing Lio will help him finally get over his ex-boyfriend, Cody.

Lio feels most alive when he's with Craig. He forgets about his broken family, his dead brother, and the messed up world. But being with Craig means being vulnerable, and Lio will have to decide whether love is worth the risk.



this immediately  on wishlist when i saw it while surfing on goodreads on Oct 10, 2011. 9/11 was 10 year's ago. horrible day in history.this sounds heartbreaking!! what do the warn out sneakers mean??


Pieces Of Us by Margie Gelbwasser

Two families. Four teens.
A summer full of secrets.

Every summer, hidden away in a lakeside community in upstate New York, four teens leave behind their old identities…and escape from their everyday lives.

Yet back in Philadelphia during the school year, Alex cannot suppress his anger at his father (who killed himself), his mother (whom he blames for it), and the girls who give it up too easily. His younger brother, Kyle, is angry too—at his abusive brother, and at their mother who doesn’t seem to care. Meanwhile, in suburban New Jersey, Katie plays the role of Miss Perfect while trying to forget the nightmare that changed her life. But Julie, her younger sister, sees Katie only as everything she’s not. And their mother will never let Julie forget it.

Up at the lake, they can be anything, anyone. Free. But then Katie’s secret gets out, forcing each of them to face reality—before it tears them to pieces

This sounds heartbreaking as well. I so <3 contemp. the swing must mean something?? right??


 Lies Beneath by Anna Greenwood Brown

Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids. To survive, Calder and his sisters prey on humans, killing them to absorb their energy. But this summer the underwater clan targets Jason Hancock out of pure revenge. They blame Hancock for their mother's death and have been waiting a long time for him to return to his family's homestead on the lake. Hancock has a fear of water, so to lure him in, Calder sets out to seduce Hancock's daughter, Lily. Easy enough—especially as Calder has lots of practice using his irresistable good looks and charm on ususpecting girls. Only this time Calder screws everything up: he falls for Lily—just as Lily starts to suspect that there's more to the monsters-in-the-lake legends than she ever imagined. And just as his sisters are losing patience with him.

Killer!! killer merfolk in Lake Superior. Sweet a hunting vicious creature can find love!! is that blood??

Top of 2011- day 3


A Life Bound by BooksConfessions of a BookaholicTwo Chicks on Booksand Fiktshun came up with this great idea to celebrate the books we have read in 2011.

he all day 3 and halfway trough this event :(. it's hosted by those lovely ladies.





 bookish boyfriends of 2011 in no paricular order. Fictional boys girls should be thinking about[in no particular order i did not have the heart to do so] 


Patrick O’Donnell, 18 yr old ''human'' Irish student[love the Irish, ha ha] he's smart, loves literature and is so mature probably cause of  his ''age'. He is guidance for her.Kate that is.








Dylan Kennedy,a 17 yr old brave , sarcastic , caring, just all round nice guy with a troubled past and who feels something is different about him. Is brave or stupid enough to rescue the girl of his dreams, literally.Kera











Ryan Beckford, a sport stud who has an eye on Kat Colvin. The 'freak' with blazing red hair but can not be with her,family issues that all i'm saying.Kind, and caring ,to kind to be in his group of ''friends''.














Caleb our leading male and love interest has dreadlocks and reminds me of a younger non vines tarzan.He may seem like a brute, heck he and his gang are living in the bewilderment what once was the US. He is kind ,can survive, is brave. a other great one.









Christian Knight,loves sport, but is not consumed by it and not a jerk. He ‘s kind, charming, a bit overprotective at times but you will soon learn why. I think girls need a real fictional male in their life and no effeminate edwardy boy.














Darius is a raw dude, you could say brute but do u know any gentle dragons in general i think not.He's loyal to his place of birth, Atlantis. Yes Atlantis, the mythical city.And will do everything to protect his bride, people and kingdom.








  
Evan is the polar opposite of Archer but they still fit together.In way or another he's the calming force in Archer's life which he desperately needs. And shows Archer the light, not that light =i'm dying light lol, but being manipulated and lied to.













Tanner Lange is great dude, a computer geek[Nerdfigheria]. He's in a wheelchair,the result of terrifying accident but that does not bring him down, He is as happy as ever. I think quite some people find him Hawt.including me<---highlight to see.  A hot nerd, a great thing in the ''ooh so perfect'' YA male population. He defends Abby which i admire 








Matthias is the guardian angel of abbria, zoe's autistic lil sister. And zoe is starting to get 
feelings for him. Matthias is like the warmth of the sun hugging you[cheazy right but true] He 's caring and could be the ideal family man, father, husband if not for him being dead and immortal. His old language use of a century ago is really sweet.





Could not think of number 10

So that were my "Real'' fictional boys this year. Who did you choose?
