Review:Between Us and The Moon

Title: Between Us and The Moon
Author: Rebecca Maizel

A luminous young adult novel that evokes Judy Blume’s Forever for a new generation.

Ever since Sarah was born, she’s lived in the shadow of her beautiful older sister, Scarlett. But this summer on Cape Cod, she’s determined to finally grow up. Then she meets gorgeous college boy Andrew. He sees her as the girl she wants to be. A girl who’s older than she is. A girl like Scarlett.

Before she knows what’s happened, one little lie has transformed into something real. And by the end of August, she might have to choose between falling in love, and finding herself.





***************************************
Between us and the moon is the perfect book about summer romance and discovering who you are. I plan to reread this book again on the beach while I soak up some sun. What I really enjoyed about the book was how much the plot and characters kept you hooked. Bean/Sarah is a young teen aged girl just trying to find her self and while a few of her lies made me cringe when I thought about the possible consequences  I couldn't fault her for them. Realistically who hasn't lied about themselves at least once.

Bean/Sarah she was the type of main character that made me think back to my own awkward teen years. Rebecca M created perfectly relate-able characters that I just wanted to learn more about. From Scarlet and her ballerina bitchiness, to yes even Curtis who faced his own demons. Then there was sweet Andrew who I just wanted to hug at the end there.


That ending  killed me I want to dislike it but it was perfect in it's believability and just a bit bittersweet. Not going to lie I'm kind of wising there ends up being a random sequel,novella or fringe companion book just so I can get more of Sarah and Andrew's story. The cover seems life it embodies a summer night on the beach. If you want a light but sincerely touching summer read look no further than Between Us and The Moon.5/5



Armchair BEA Day 3: Character Chatter


Armchair BEA is for those people who cannot visit Book Expo America but still want to join in the fun. 

Day 3 Character Chatter


Character Chatter!! Todays Armchair BEA topic is all about the book characters.So I'm going to talk/write about some of my favorite types of book character. I like my book characters like I like my life lessons awkward,bitter sweet and makes me feel all the feels.

It's not just about a good plot and setting if I can't relate to a character in the first couple chapters then I’m DNFing whatever book I’m reading. Sometimes I’ll stick it out think the character will change for the better but it's always a let down when that doesn't happens. I'm a huge fan of the whole redemption thing so give me a character with some angst that turns their s**t around and I’m happy. However what I dislike is when a character has no type of growth. You know the type the character starts out awful ie: selfish,whinny,a liar,or etc and then the climax/life alternating thing happens and boom nothing maybe the character is slightly less awful but you finish the book and are just like that's it...what was that why..??Stuff like that bugs the hell out of me.

Another thing I enjoy in relation to book characters is when there's snark in abundance a well written snarky character is the best. For examples see Puck from The Iron Fey Series,Adrian from the Vampire Academy books and the Bloodline spin off series ,as well as Bianca from the DUFF. Snarky slightly bitchy characters and people in IRL make my soul happy,the reason for this is I always enjoy meeting/reading about kindred spirits.

Basically the type of character I enjoy reading about no matter the genre or if it's a main character or secondary second has to be relate-able. I have to feel like every thing that that characters going though is similar to my issues. Me feeling this way all comes down to a lot of different variables that I’d rather not get in to mainly because I like keeping my post short and sweet. Comment and let me know what you think?

What is your favorite type of character? Brooding?Male or Female?Let me know in the comment section along with the link to your Armchair BEA post on Characters or Blogging Q&A
Have a Happy Armchair BEA 2015!!Thnks for stopping by.

Armchair BEA Day 2:Social Media


Armchair BEA is for those people who cannot visit Book Expo America but still want to join in the fun. 
Day 2 Social Media 

Okay so the topic of the days are social media or Visual expressions. I thought about doing both but decided on social media. So in this day and age there's a lot of sites for social media Twitter, Facebook,Google+ and if your feeling nostalgic and out dated there's good ole MySpace plus a bunch more that I have no clue about.

When it comes to using social media to expand my blogging/writing horizon I am seriously lacking. I know blogging and life in general is all about making connection and networking but I'm just an awkward turtle all around. The only social media sites I use in relation to my blog are blogger and twitter. I have a Facebook but I keep that separate from my blogging world I do this mainly because Fb is more personal and I’m a bit shy/awkward when it come to sharing my blog with people I know. 
Strangers no prob people I know every day..mehh not as cool with it. 

I like using twitter a lot when it come to interacting with author and fellow bloggers verses comments on blogger mainly because it more of an instant  interaction. 
 I think social media and the whole instant  interaction is great but also when misused can be pretty awful. What makes it awful is sometimes people for get that the are sending these mean comments toward a real person not just  a little picture icon. Also what you post online stays online even if you think it doesn't. I recently read a blog post talking about how bloggers  interact with them authors on social media and the person brought up a lot of good points.(If I can find the blog/post I’ll link it to give her credit where credits due) 

Her post got me thinking about when I should and shouldn't link/tag/etc an author. I tend to do so only if the review is 4 or up and on occasion a 3.The whole sending mean comment online can go both ways authors to blogger to bloggers to authors and etc. So with all that being said I tend to be causes with my online presence. I like to  make more connection with others though any tips would be appreciated. Find me on Twitter @talamelis 

Hope you enjoyed my rambling slightly non cohesive post on social media. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Armchair BEA 2015!! :D 

Armchair BEA Day 1:Introduction

Armchair BEA is for those people who cannot visit Book Expo America but still want to join in the fun. I really wish I was in NYC with my fellow bloggers who are attending BEA (Book Expo America), but sadly I can't. It all good though I’m more than happy to be a part of Armchair BEA!


Day 1 Introductions.

Tell us a bit about yourself: How long have you been blogging? Where are you from? How did you get into blogging?
Hello fellow bloggers/blog readers my name is Melissa and I've been blogging for the last 5 yrs give or take since 2011.I'm from Chicago and I got into blogging after discovering one of my friends blog. From there I started reading different book blogs and decided to start my own.So far I have 3 blogs two for personal uses and on for a college class. I really only keep my book blog up to date and the other personal on only every now and then.

Why do you loving reading and blogging?
I love to read because it gets me out of my own head and I can just explore the mind of someone else s for a little bit. I I enjoy blogging because I like giving my opinions on something I love be it mainly books,music,or something else entirely

What is your theme song?
Okay so in an awesome world my theme song would be the opening music for the Harry Potter movies but alas while the world is awesome it is not that awesome.*Le sigh* I can dream though.

What is one book everyone should read?
One book everyone should read especially if your interested in becoming a educator is Educating Esme:Diary of A Teacher's First Year by Esmé Raji Codell. I loved this book on so many levels its not even funny. If your not into memoirs than the next must read is The Realm of Possibilities by David Levithan.

What is your favorite genre and why?
I like a bit of every genre but if I had to chose a favorite it would be fantasy followed closely by YA/NA contemporary.

What book are you reading right now?
As of right now I’m rereading Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn.

What book are you most looking forward to reading this summer?
The Summer of Chasing Mermaids Sarah Ockler. I adore Sarah's books!!!

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what author would you want to bring with you? Why?
Tough question I’m really tempted to say J.K Rowling just so i can pick her brain about all things Harry potter  but my pick would be Maureen Johnson because based of her twitter she seems like a fun time.



*Apparently we were only supposed to pick/answer  5 questions...I was so excited that i skimmed the instructions. Oh well enjoy my Armchair BEA intro.



Waiting on Wednesday(50):The Summer Of Chasing Mermaids

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for..

Title:The Summer Of Chasing Mermaids 
Author:Sarah Ockler
Release Date: June 2,2015
Publisher:Simon Pulse
The youngest of six talented sisters, Elyse d’Abreau was destined for stardom—until a boating accident took everything from her. Now, the most beautiful singer in Tobago can’t sing. She can’t even speak.

Seeking quiet solitude, Elyse accepts a friend’s invitation to Atargatis Cove. Named for the mythical first mermaid, the Oregon seaside town is everything Elyse’s home in the Caribbean isn’t: An ocean too cold for swimming, parties too tame for singing, and people too polite to pry—except for one.

Christian Kane is a notorious playboy—insolent, arrogant, and completely charming. He’s also the only person in Atargatis Cove who doesn’t treat Elyse like a glass statue. He challenges her to express herself, and he admires the way she treats his younger brother Sebastian, who believes Elyse is the legendary mermaid come to life. 

When Christian needs a first mate for the Cove’s high-stakes Pirate Regatta, Elyse reluctantly stows her fear of the sea and climbs aboard. The ocean isn’t the only thing making waves, though—swept up in Christian’s seductive tide and entranced by the Cove’s charms, Elyse begins to wonder if a life of solitude isn’t what she needs. But changing course again means facing her past. It means finding her inner voice. And scariest of all, it means opening her heart to a boy who’s best known for breaking them . . .


Sarah Ockler is one of my favorite authors and i'm looking forward to reading this new book.Check out my reviews of a few of her other books if you want. Here!

So that's what I'm waiting. So how about you? Leave a link and let me know. :)

It's A Summer Thing


So for the third summer in a row I'm off to work at a sleep away camp for the summer.This summer will be a bit different however because I'm not returning to Camp K but instead working at a Girl Scout Camp in Wisconsin.I just got word a few days ago that I got the job and needless to say I have camp on the brain. I leave for staff training in a week and while deciding what books to bring on the very slim chance that I get some time on my days off to read I started to wonder if there were any good books revolving around a summer camp. 
I couldn't think of any that I've read besides OyMG by Amy Fellner Dominy-which is pretty hilarious and touching-so i searched for camp related books on Goodreads and discovered a bunch of campish books.So below Iv'e included both fiction and non fiction books with a camp setting that I would really like to read at some point.


Title:Five Summer
Author: Una LaMarche
Fiction,YA
Four best friends, five summers of camp memories. 

The summer we were nine: Emma was branded “Skylar’s friend Emma” by the infamous Adam Loring...
The summer we were ten: Maddie realized she was too far into her lies to think about telling the truth...
The summer we were eleven: Johanna totally freaked out during her first game of Spin the Bottle...
The summer we were twelve: Skylar’s love letters from her boyfriend back home were exciting to all of us—except Skylar...
Our last summer together: Emma and Adam almost kissed. Jo found out Maddie’s secret. Skylar did something unthinkable... and whether we knew it then or not, five summers of friendship began to fall apart. 

Three years after the fateful last night of camp, the four of us are coming back to camp for reunion weekend—and for a second chance. Bittersweet, funny, and achingly honest, Five Summers is a story of friendship, love, and growing up that is perfect for fans of Anne Brashares and Judy Blume's Summer Sisters.




Title:Things I Can't Forget
Author:Miranda Keneally
Fiction,YA
Kate has always been the good girl. Too good, according to some people at school—although they have no idea the guilty secret she carries. But this summer, everything is different…

This summer she’s a counselor at Cumberland Creek summer camp, and she wants to put the past behind her. This summer Matt is back as a counselor too. He’s the first guy she ever kissed, and he’s gone from a geeky songwriter who loved The Hardy Boys to a buff lifeguard who loves to flirt--with her.

Kate used to think the world was black and white, right and wrong. Turns out, life isn’t that easy…




Title:Not A Happer Camper 

Author:Mindy Schneider
Non-Fiction,Memoir 

Remember those long sultry summer days at camp, the sun setting over the lake as you sang Kumbaya? Well, Mindy Schneider remembers her summer at Camp Kin-A-Hurra in 1974 just a wee bit differently. Not a Happy Camper chronicles a young girl’s adventures at a camp where the sun never shines, the breakfast cereal dates back to the summer of 1922, and many of the counselors speak no English. For eight eye-opening and unforgettable weeks, 
Mindy and her eccentric band of friends — including Autumn Evening Schwartz, the daughter of hippies who communicates with the dead, and the sleep-dancing, bibliophile Betty Gilbert — keep busy feuding in color wars, failing at sports, and uncovering the camp’s hidden past. As she focuses on landing the perfect boyfriend and longs for her first kiss, Mindy unexpectedly stumbles across something infinitely grander: herself. Hilarious, charming, and glowing with nostalgia, Mindy Schneider’s memoir is a must-read for anyone who’s ever been to summer camp, or wishes they had


Title:Cabin Pressure: One Man's Desperate Attempt to Recapture His Youth as a Camp Counselor
Author:Josh Wolk
Non-Fiction,Memoir 
Three months before getting married at age thirty-four, Josh Wolk decides to treat himself to a "farewell to childhood" extravaganza: one last summer working at the beloved Maine boys' camp where he spent most of the eighties. And there he finds out that there's no better way to see how much you've changed than to revisit a place that hasn't changed at all.In these eight hilarious, uncomfortable, enlightening weeks, Josh readjusts to life teaching swimming and balancing on a thin metal cot in a cabin of shouting, wrestling, wet-willie-dispensing fourteen-year-olds who, contrary to the warnings of doom saying sociologists, he finds indistinguishable from the rowdy fourteen-year-olds of his day in any way other than their haircuts. With his old camp friends gone, he finds himself working alongside guys who used to be his campers.
 Moments of feeling cripplingly old are offset by the corrosive insecurities of his youth when he's paired in the cabin with Mitch, the forty-two-year-old jack-of-all- extreme-sports whose machismo intimidated Josh so much fifteen years earlier, and whom their current campers idolize. And throughout all this disorienting regression, Josh's telephone conversations with his fiance, Christine, grow increasingly intense as their often comical discussions over the wedding become a flimsy cover for her worries that he's not ready to relinquish his death-grip on the comforts of the past.
So there ya go fellow bloggers and blog reader my list of books related to summer camps.
Have any camp related book recommendationsA funny stories when you were a camper or counselor then go right ahead and leave me a comment I'd love to hear from you.

Review:The Orphan Queen

Title:The Orphan Queen
Author:Jodie Meadows

She is a princess. When the Indigo Kingdom conquered her homeland, Wilhelmina and other orphaned children of nobility were taken to Skyvale, the Indigo Kingdom’s capital. Ten years later, they are the Ospreys, experts at stealth and theft. With them, Wilhelmina means to take back her throne.

She is a spy. Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate Skyvale Palace to study their foes. They assume the identities of nobles from a wraith-fallen kingdom, but enemies fill the palace, and Melanie’s behavior grows suspicious. With Osprey missions becoming increasingly dangerous and their leader more unstable, Wil can’t trust anyone.

She is a threat. Wraith is the toxic by-product of magic, and for a century using magic has been forbidden. Still the wraith pours across the continent, reshaping the land and animals into fresh horrors. Soon it will reach the Indigo Kingdom. Wilhelmina’s magic might be the key to stopping the wraith, but if the vigilante Black Knife discovers Wil’s magic, she will vanish like all the others.

Jodi Meadows introduces a vivid new fantasy full of intrigue, romance, dangerous magic, and one girl’s battle to reclaim her place in the world.  


*********************************

The  story of the displaced  nobility trying to regain her/his kingdom isn't all that ground breaking (Princess of Thorns,other titles went hear till I realized me putting them here would have been a major spoiler for most of my examples) take my word for it though there is quite a few books/series that fall in the same vein as The Orphan Queen. However with that being said The Orphan Queen is still an enjoyable read and stands out doing it's own thing.

Princess Wilhelmina better know as Wil is trying to regain her kingdom of Aecor with the help of the other displace noble orphans of her stolen land. Wil is a thief,future leader and caring/protective of her loved ones.As a main  character Wil is brash,loyal,ready to gain her kingdom back ,and has a lot to learn about being a leader.As a main character she is likable and i'm eager to see what comes next for her and the other characters. The other charecters i'm looking forward to learing more about is Black knife *swoons*,the Prince and the other Ospreys,plus that new wraith like character at the end.*shudders*.

The pacing was okay – not too fast, not too slow.One thing that bothered me was lack of history regarding the  Wraith the toxic by-product of magic and Wil's kingdoms downfall. Besides the actual brief history lesson of two of the Osprey's there's little about both.I feel like there needed to be a bit more world building in general.The Cover is really freaking gorgeous, I'm digging the cloak on the girl and the overall color scheme of the cover.All in all Orphan Queen is a quick and likable read and i can't wait for the sequel.Mainly because that ending killed me and i need to know what happens next ASAP!3/5

Waiting on Wednesday(49) Every Last Breathe

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for..

Title: Every Last Breathe
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher:Harlequin Teen
Release Date: July 28,2015

Some loves will last ’til your dying breath

Every choice has consequences—but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.

Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell…


So that's what I'm waiting. So how about you? Leave a link and let me know. :)

Top Ten Tuesday(30):Freebie!!! Top Ten Books I'd give a theme song too


Check out how Top Ten Tuesday works & the future schedule of topics HERE.The Top Ten Tuesday, is hosted by the ever-fabulous The Broke and the Bookish   This  meme was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish.

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is a FREEBIE!!!So I decided to combine my to favorite things music and books meaning I've chosen to do...
Top Ten Books I'd give a theme song too



  1. Between Us and The Moon I picked this song because I think Bean would appreciate the reference to the stars/ect but also because it fits well with the summer vibe and sums of that first love type feeling, Echosmith-Bright "You sprinkle star dust on my pillow case
    It's like a mooning brushed across my face Nights are good and that's the way it should be"

  2. Sophomore Year is Greek to Me  It's always been Zona  and her dad so Paradise Fears You To Believe In showcases that. I've got you to believe in, I've got you to believe in,some people have their faith,I don't what to think,
  3. The Bane Chronicales Cassandra Clare Theme song is:I believe in a thing called loved by the darkness The Bane Chronicles is composed of a bunch of short stores about Magnus vein and on thing is clear Magnus believes in is  love even as the years keep adding up in his long life."I believe in a thing called love Just listen to the rhythm of my heartThere's a chance we could make it nowWe'll be rocking 'til the sun goes down"
  4. Roomies Lindy Zart  Kennedy  loves Graham  but with a new love interest she might just have had enough and  Bridget Mendler-515 goes perfectly with how while she doesn't want to she might just give up on Graham I think I've gone dumb,Sick on puppy love
    Wanna break out Think I've had enoughThe walls are caving in

  5. The Prince of Venice Beach Blake Nelson Cali is a runaway teen living the simple life in Venice Beach, California Be Okay fits that easy going vibe Cali has despite whats going on in his life Oh Honey-Be Okay "Can't complain about much these daysI believe we'll be okay oh oh oh oh oh ohWanna scream it outI believe we'll be okay"
  6. Nantucket Red Leila Howland Nantucket Red is a sequel and I absolutely loved it mainly because the book seemed so genuine and relate-table.Cricket Thompson is the main character and the book is all about her growing up and discover just what she really wants. Ready or Not by Bridget Mendler fits the changes Cricket is going though "I'm the kinda girl who doesn't say a word,Who sits at the curb and waits for the world But I'm about to break out, about to break out I'm like a crook tonight"
  7. Stone Cold Touch is the 2nd book in the dark elements trioloy and in it Layla is still torn between Zayne and Roth I picked Tear in My Heart by Twenty One Pilots because it sums up the whole love triangle thing.It works from the  perspective. of Layla to Roth or From both Roth and Zayne to Layla."Sometimes you’ve got to bleed to know,That you're alive and have a soul,But it takes someone to come around to show you how."
  8. The HeartBreakers Ali Novak "And I, I hate to see your heart breakI hate to see your eyes get darker as they close But I've been there before" Paramore-Hate to See Your Heart Break
  9. A Long Way From You Gwendolyn Heasley In A Long Way From You Kitsy is torn between a lot of thing like boys, the past and her future, and etc. I think Meaghan Trainor's song Selfish Heart makes an excellent theme song for Kitsys journey "I'm too focused on this dream, And your kiss is a drug, pulls me back so quick Until I pull us apart, well forgive my selfish heart"

Review: Legacy

Title: Legacy
Author: Ellery A.Kane

How do you want to feel today?

In 2041, the choice is yours.

San Francisco is deserted, the Bay Bridge bombed, and the BART subway trains grounded. The Guardians, members of an elite and mysterious government-appointed military police force, are maintaining order at all costs—thanks to emotion-altering drugs like Emovere that suppress fear and anxiety.

 Lex Knightley, daughter of a prominent forensic psychiatrist, risks entering the devastated city to partner with the Resistance, a group of rebels intent upon exposing the dangers of Emovere.
Lex discovers an ally in Quin McAllister, a magnetic Guardian Force recruit with a haunting past that binds them together. As she uncovers the secrets of the Guardian Force and confronts the truth about her family, Lex begins to realize that even those closest to her are not quite who they seem.
Legacy is the first in a trilogy but can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone.

**********************

Legacy's synopsis will definitely draw you in if your a fan of down with the government dystopian books.The story starts of strong and just keeps going. This worked and didn't work for me I felt like everything was pretty fast paced and a bit more detail in general would have been great. The best part about the book is learning about the different emotion-altering drugs.

The book starts off with a bang with Lex and her dangerous trip across the bridge to find the rebels. In the beginning he pov switches from present to past explaining how Lex got there, and how her mother is the person who started the problem in the world that the rebels are facing. Lex was kind of hit or miss for me on one hand she was a likable character on the other she a bit stubborn somewhere towards the end of the book and she started to bother me. Quin was kind of hard to understand,he was hot then cold the next minute. I couldn't really relate to both characters. The other charterers like Max or Eddie where probably a lot more relate-able for me than the main two.

The cover fit wonderfully with the story and a few key moments in the book. Legacy is a good read/book and I can respect that but truthfully it's just not something I'd read again. Regardless to how I feel though give Legacy a shot and form you own opinion.2/5

Something to Note: I received this book from the author for an honest review.
