Review : The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich

There is a secret organization that cultivates teenage spies. The agents are called Love Interests because getting close to people destined for great power means getting valuable secrets.Caden is a Nice: the boy next door, sculpted to physical perfection. Dylan is a Bad: the brooding, dark-souled guy who is dangerously handsome. The girl they are competing for is important to the organization, and each boy will pursue her. Will she choose the Nice or the Bad? Both Caden and Dylan are living in the outside world for the first time. They are well-trained and at the top of their games. They have to be—whoever the girl doesn’t choose will die.
What the boys don’t expect are feelings that are outside of their training. Feelings that could kill them both. 

First, i have to say that i have read some reviews on Goodreads and i know this book wasn’t for everyone. There’s alot of mixed opinion with this one, but it worked very well for me. i had an amazing time reading this story. The concept was fun, entertaining and original. I finished it in one sitting and i enjoyed it alot. I do wish our characters were a bit more developed, i think that’s one of the things i was really missing. I wanted more from them. Especially Natalie. Her character could have been freaking epic, but meh. Also, the whole “cheating” part really pissed me off, i don’t want to say any spoilers, but gosh, DO NOT ACTED LIKE CHEATING IS OKAY. Caden and Dylan were both okay, i liked how it played with YA clichés and obviously i enjoyed how the author took the love triangle and push it in a very interesting direction. There’s  alot of hot shirtless dudes and lets be honest, i was fine with that. The writing style itself was okay, it did need a bit more of world building in my opinion. I also would have like some chapters from Dylan POV, i wanted to see him play the game and get into his head a little. We barely got to know him. 

Overall, i enjoyed that book, but it’s far from perfect. There’s a couple of plot holes and it lacks of world building. I’m pretty sure not everybody will enjoy it, but i really did.

The Love Interest: 3.5/5

Review : There’s Someone Inside your House by Stephanie Perkins

Scream meets YA in this hotly-anticipated new novel from the bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss.
One-by-one, the students of Osborne High are dying in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, the dark secrets among them must finally be confronted.


I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

The book comes out in September 2017

I had to stop and think about this one before writing my review. It’s not that dislike it, i actually enjoyed some of it, but there’s a couple of things that annoyed me enough to bring the rating down. First, this is not horror. This is a romance novel place in a horror setting. It has some good horror scenes, some gory chapters, but most of it is push aside by the main love story. I liked the “scream” vibe we had in the first chapter, but it all fade away, and only cames back for the finale. I was hoping for just a tiny bit more at the end. Makani and Ollie were okay, but i still didn’t have a very big attachment. It’s was hard to care for any of the characters really because these two were the only ones we had any kind of development. So when one of them died, i had no emotions. i just didn’t care, and i think this is an important factor for a well-done slasher, you have to care when people die. My other problem is the whole killer revelations….because one, it came way too early in the story in my opinion, two, i was like who the hell is that?! 

Overall, i think this book was okay, i was just expecting more horror less romance, and characters i would actually care about. 

There’s Some Inside Your House : 3/5

Review : We’ll Never be Apart Emiko Jean

Murder. Fire. Revenge. 

That’s all seventeen-year-old Alice Monroe thinks about. Committed to a mental ward at Savage Isle, Alice is haunted by memories of the fire that killed her boyfriend, Jason. A blaze her twin sister Cellie set. But when Chase, a mysterious, charismatic patient, agrees to help her seek vengeance, Alice begins to rethink everything. Writing out the story of her troubled past in a journal, she must confront hidden truths.
Is the one person she trusts only telling her half the story? Nothing is as it seems in this edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller from the debut author Emiko Jean. 

This book just didn’t work for me. I was hoping for a creepy and dark book, what i got was a predictable and dull story. I figured out the twist simply by reading the description, and that’s not something you want. The more i read, the more i was hoping i was wrong. I wasn’t… it’s déjà-vue, it’s predictable, it’s also a bit unrealistic. No way would people locked up in a mental institute would just be able to walk around so easily around the place. The epilogue was absolutely not necessary, feels like it just cancelled the last chapter. The characters were meh, i didn’t care for any of them. The writing was okay, i think i would read something else by the writer. 

I’m sad to say i will quickly forget this book. I always feel bad saying this, but this book is not one i can recommend.

We’ll Never be Apart : 2/5

My review of book 1 : X

This book was a perfect conclusion to such an interesting series. I really enjoyed it. I have to talk about the diversity in this book, not only with the characters, but with the whole storyline. There’s soooo many issues touched in this duology, it really has a little bit of everything. It’s not too overwhelming either, i think it was incredibly well-done. One of things i really liked in this one is learning who did each prank from last year and trying to figure out who was behind the ending of book one. Added a little mystery aspect. It was also really interesting to see how the year before marked all of the girls, how they are trying to come back for all of this drama. All of our girls have been changed by the events, and they are just trying to figure out what to do next.

i was not expecting to enjoy this duology when i first picked it up, but i really liked it. It’s dark, it’s crazy, and i would recommend it. 
Shiny Broken Pieces: 4/5

Sarah plays AMONG THE SLEEP


played on : Xbox One

Among the Sleep is an other little horror game that is simply fun to try out. I really enjoyed my playing adventure with this one, my only problem is how short it was. I think it was great to play as such a young kid. Everything felt bigger, darker and scarier than what the real thing would be if we were an adult character.  The kid’s imagination plays a big part in the setting adding a very interesting vibe to it. The graphic are not that epic, but that didn’t stop me from loving the great atmosphere. the sound effects were extremely creepy and well done. The story ends with a very good plot twist.

Overall, i really enjoyed this short, little game. 

Among The Sleep : 4/5
