Eighteen-year-old maid Tess Davies is determined to escape the wealthy, troubled family she serves. It’s 1912, and Tess has been trapped in the employ of the Lisles for years, amid painful memories and twisted secrets. But now the Lisle family is headed to America, with Tess in tow. Once the ship they’re sailing on—the RMS Titanic—reaches its destination, Tess plans to strike out and create a new lifefor herself.

Her single-minded focus shatters when she meets Alec, a handsome first-class passenger who captivates her instantly. But Alec has secrets of his own. He’s in a hurry to leave Europe, and whispers aboard the ship say it’s because of the tragic end of his last affair with the French actress who died so gruesomely and so mysteriously. . . .

Soon Tess will learn just how dark Alec’s past truly is. The danger they face is no ordinary enemy: werewolves exist and are stalking him—and now her, too. Her growing love for Alec will put Tess in mortal peril, and fate will do the same before their journey on the Titanic is over.

In Fateful, New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray delivers paranormal adventure, dark suspense, and alluring romance set against the opulent backdrop of the Titanic’s first—and last—voyage.

Tess is 18 years old and is about to set sail on the Titanic working for one of the richest families in England– the Lisles. Usually people who work for these kinds of families, usually get to stay in the first class rooms or at least middle class, but the Lisles aren’t the nicest family.. They make  those that work for them, stay in the third class and bunk with others. But, Tess doesn’t mind this. As soon as the Titanic reaches America, she’s leaving the Lisles to find new work and start a new life.

She then meets Alec whom is a first class passenger and of course is expected to pay no attention to lower class people, but catches her eye.

Seeing as this is following the storyline of the Titanic, many terrible things go on throughout this story, but will it end well for Tess?

my thoughts 2

Okay, this was the first book I was reading for the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon I hosted on Sunday. I read this along with my friend Suna at kiwilover25. I was really surprised at how much I really enjoyed this book!
I had a feeling I’d enjoy it because I went through a phase when I was younger where all I did was study everything about the Titanic. I was COMPLETELY fascinated with what happened.. Even though it was INCREDIBLY tragic, I just thought it was so interesting to learn about! So of course, I had to pick this book up! I’m really glad I did!

Had I not have read this with Suna, I probably wouldn’t have picked it up as soon as I did. I’m so very glad I did. I enjoyed the whole story and there were some plot twists that I was definitely not expecting AT ALL. I was almost in tears at one point in the story. It was so intense and action packed. I really enjoyed that it’s not a normal YA book, this takes place in 1912 and during the journey of the Titanic.

I can not stress enough how much I really enjoyed this book! Such a great story, many plot twists that make you sit at the edge of your seat. Even though you know what happens to the Titanic, there were such great plot twists! It made me feel like I was in Tess’s life living through her experience on the Titanic!

favorite quotes

“What I feel for Alec– the depth of his desperation–moves me more than logic or caution or any thought of my own safety. Perhaps I should believe it has only made me insane, but down deep, I know: He has made me braver. Stronger. Someone who could do anything.”

.

“Nobody else will ever be able to save me if I’m not fighting as hard as I can to save myself.”

.

“You’re strong enough to stand up to anyone. Smart enough to do anything you want. Don’t sell yourself
short; don’t be afraid of what your new life is going to offer. Because I know—if there’s any justice in this
world, good things are going to come to you. Better things than you ever dreamed.”

24 Hour Read-a-Thon PRE-Update

79da5b665bc711e3b8f30efae419d75e_8Hi guys! I hope your all ready for the read-a-thon! I have a couple updates for you…

I will be posting periodically on my Twitter– @BBookishConfess as well as my instagram– @briboookishconfessions and trying to keep up with everyone. Make sure you follow me on one/both of them. :)

I will be going to a meet-up tomorrow with a bunch of booktubers, then immediately after I have to work until 11pm. Then the following day I have to work 4pm-midnight. So with that said, that kind of puts a hold on how much I’ll be able to read. I can’t stay up all night reading because I have to work the following day. Which means, I’ll have to sleep at some point that night. I’ll stay up as late as I can and start as soon as I can. (I babysit so as soon as the kids go to sleep tomorrow, I’ll start my read-a-thon.) Also not to mention, my best friend who lives in a different state now, is visiting me. I also can’t stay up all Sunday night either because I have a meeting to go to the next morning, so I really didn’t pick a good weekend for this read-a-thon! But, oh well. I’m going to try my best to work around with what I have.

Please make sure you follow me especially on Twitter for updates about the read-a-thon and I can see what everyone is reading and how well everyone is doing. If you follow me, tweet saying your for the read-a-thon and I’ll add you to the list of read-a-thon people. :)

 

Bookish Confessions: Becoming Self-Hosted on WordPress?

self hosted

Okay, I’m not trying to sound annoying or anything, but I have been trying for months to figure out this whole “self-hosted” wordpress.org thing.

Okay, if you haven’t already guessed I’m using the hosted WordPress.com platform or whatever you want to call it. I don’t like how I can’t customize much or use Rafflecopter on my blog… I also don’t like how I can’t add my own plug-ins! I’ve been trying to add them when I first started then soon figured out that it’s not allowed on hosted.. I literally know nothing about setting up a website or anything so I’m completely clueless as to what I need to do to make my blog self-hosted.

I don’t plan on doing this until at least the summertime, because I do know I’m going to need money.. Well, at this point I’m kind of broke! I can’t afford to spend $100 to however much it costs to make a self-hosted blog and keep it going.

The last couple months I’ve been researching different blogs that make their own layouts and everything and have found some people. Well, I guess that’s a good start, but I have no clue what to do. I’ve bought the WordPress for Dummies (yeah I know.. Laugh all you want) book and have been going through it every now and then. But, it just isn’t making sense. I’m still having trouble processing what the heck is PHP and MySQL or however it’s spelled.. I think that’s right?

I don’t know where to start and where to go from here. I’d really like to start slowly transitioning to self-hosted.

Does anyone have self-hosted? Thoughts?

Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn’t think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face.

But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.

Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out Wesley isn’t such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she’s falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.

Bianca is a very loyal friend and is also cynical. She knows she isn’t the prettiest compared to her two best friends, Jessica and Casey. She knows not to fall for Wesley, whom is the “man” of the school, MANY girls have slept with him. But, Bianca doesn’t have to worry about liking him because she hates him. Wesley gives her the nickname “the DUFF” because he wants to get either Jessica or Casey to have sex with him.

Things aren’t going very well at home either, wanting some sort of distraction from everything that’s going on, she ends up doing the one thing she never thought she would do. She kissed Wesley, and she actually liked kissing him. She then begins a friends-with-benefits relationship with Wesley, but of course they aren’t friends.

Things are starting to get worse after a couple weeks go by. She hasn’t really talked much to her best friends because Bianca doesn’t like to open up and talk about how she feels. She’d rather keep them inside.

my thoughts 2

I read this book in one day.. ONE DAY! It was a short book, but hey, it was REALLY good. I couldn’t put it down.

Besides Fangirl, this is now one of my favorite contemporaries. I very, very, very much enjoyed this book! I read this for a book club that I joined recently and this was the book of the month. Had I not have joined, I probably wouldn’t have read this any sooner.

I really enjoyed Bianca’s character, I could see some parts of me in her character. As well as Jessica and Casey. At first I hated Wesley just like Bianca, but as the story went on and we got to see more of him, I started to really like him. I kind of had a feeling that what happened with the relationship and how things went about, that it would happen like that. But, it didn’t affect how much  I really enjoyed this book!!

I didn’t like Toby, something seemed off about him and I just didn’t like him.

Fans of contemporary will really enjoy this!

favorite quotes

“Spanish, huh?” he said, glancing down at the scattered papers as he grabbed them. “Can you say anything interesting?”
El tono de tu voz hace que queria estrangularme.” I stood up and waited for him to hand over my papers.
“That sounds sexy,” he said, getting to his feet and handing me the stack of Spanish work he’d swept together. “What’s it mean?”
“The sound of your voice makes me want to strangle myself.”
“Kinky.”

.

“No matter where you go or what you do to distract yourself, reality catches up with you eventually.”

.

“Your sense of humor needs some work, then,” Wesley suggested. “Most girls find my jokes charming.”
“Those girls must have IQs low enough to trip over.”

.

Wesley Rush doesn’t chase girls, but I’m chasing you.

I received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review from the author. It does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Seventeen-year-old Ruby Fields has always lived by the rules set up by her foolishly overprotective mother. As a result, she doesn’t go to school, she’s never been kissed, and almost everything she knows about life is what she has learned from old movies.

But now…now there’s this Joshua guy. He’s quirky, and he’s tall, and he uses “romantic” and “old-fashioned” in the same sentence.

And there’s Mrs. Wheeler, an eccentric retired Hollywood costume designer and Ruby’s new best friend.

When Mrs. Wheeler ends up in hospital, just after telling Ruby her long-kept secret, Ruby decides to break her mother’s rules and embark on a journey that will change her life forever.

Ruby has always been under watchful eye by her mother. You could say she’s overprotective. Ruby is home-schooled, she’s 17 years old, she’s never had her first kiss, never smoked, and never drank. She’s not your normal teenager, she’d rather stay home and watch silent “old” movies than go to parties.

One day Ruby meets a guy not much older than her; his name is Joshua. He’s a complete sweetheart and very “old-fashioned”, which for Ruby is PERFECT.

Ruby likes to spend her time with an older lady named Mrs. Wheeler who is a retired Hollywood costume designer and very quickly becomes Ruby’s only and new best friend. One day Mrs. Wheeler ends up in the hospital just after telling Ruby her biggest secret that she has never told another soul. She ends up breaking the rules and goes about a journey.

my thoughts 2

Okay, wow. This book was just.. SO STINKING CUTE! Okay, there were some sad and touching moments in this book, but I could not help smiling at how much I REALLY enjoyed this book! About half way, I was settling with a 4-4.5/5 stars rating, but wow. No, this book DESERVED a 5/5 star rating and is definitely a favorite of mine now.

I don’t want to go into too much detail, but this does deal with syndromes that isn’t very well known today and that people just kind of brush off. I have a friend who’s brother has this syndrome, so I kind of had knowledge of it and how people react to this.

I just can’t… This book was just amazing! It definitely deserves more love because this book was seriously AMAZING! It’s fairly short and I just couldn’t put it down. Definitely a MUST READ book.

favorite quotes

“Discretion was never one of my mother’s virtues. She’s as discreet as a colonoscopist’s rubber glove. Pardon my French.”

.

“I looked into his eyes for a moment. They were midnight blue and they were smiling and I was ready to fall in love.”

.

“Sometimes my life turns into a musical. The outside world just fades away, and the song starts playing in my head, sad and beautiful at the same time, and I sing along, and I dance inwardly until my inner feet start burning with pain.”

.

“Freedom is not some place outside you, hidden at the end of winding road where magical things happen and where people all of a sudden become wise and fulfilled. You don’t have to travel three thousand miles to find it. It has nothing to do with walls or restrictions. Freedom lies inside you. Like some delicate fruit that waits for you to pick it. you have to pen yourself to the world and nurture it until it’s ripe. It can take a long time because it’s a rare and fragile fruit. But if you don’t open your eyes and your soul really, really wide like that child who sees snow for the first time in their life, it will never get ripe.”

My Rating: 4.5 stars

Jenny Kramer knows she isn’t normal. After all, not everybody can see the past lives of people around them. When she befriends Ben Daulton, resident new boy, the pair stumbles on an old music box with instructions for “mesmerization” and discover they may have more in common than they thought.

Like a past life.

Using the instructions in the music box, Ben and Jenny share a dream that transports them to Romanov Russia and leads them to believe they have been there together before. But they weren’t alone. Nikolai, the mysterious young man Jenny has been seeing in her own dreams was there, too. When Nikolai appears next door, Jenny is forced to acknowledge that he has traveled through time and space to find her. Doing so means he has defied the laws of time, and the Order, an ominous organization tasked with keeping people in the correct time, is determined to send him back. While Ben, Jenny and Nikolai race against the clock—and the Order—the trio discovers a link that joins them in life—and beyond death.

Jenny knows she isn’t normal. One night she goes with her friend Tiffany to a party and they pull out a Ouija board and things start to go downhill. Ever since that night, Jenny has been having weird dreams and seems to be having the same guy reoccurring in these dreams.

Jenny befriends Ben who has just moved into town. They don’t get off to the best start, but one day they go into the attic to sort through things and come across an old music box. They discover instruction for “memorization” and decide to try it out. They both share the same exact dream and are thrown into Romanov Russia in an earlier time. This guy, Nikolai that has been showing in Jenny’s dreams is now in real life. He tells her that he has traveled through time to find her.

Because he has traveled through time, this can upset the balance. The Order– who controls people who travel through space are after Nikolai and want to through him back to that time period. Well, they don’t want him to go back. They have a certain amount of time to get this done or The Order will take him… Can they get it done?

my thoughts 2

Okay, I can’t believe how LONG it took me to read this.. It took over a MONTH & A HALF to read it. It’s not that I didn’t like it, it’s because I would find other books that I wanted to read.. Just look at what books I’ve completed.. I was also contacted by a publisher to review a series, well that took about a week to do.

Anyways, I was CONSTANTLY reminded of the animated movie, Anastasia while reading this. I don’t know if it’s because I’m such a SUCKER for Disney/animated movies or.. I don’t know. When I heard Romanov.. I thought BAM! Anastasia!!! And I swear the guy in the movie is also named Nikolai.. I could be completely wrong… But I do remember the whole family is forced out of their mansion and is taken over. Well, that’s basically what happens in this book!

I REALLY enjoyed this book. The only thing that kept me from giving this a 5/5 stars was that this is a STAND-ALONE! WHAT!? WHY?! I NEED to know what happens next! This CANNOT be a stand-alone! The ending has a cliff-hanger, but basically your just standing there waiting for nothing. Your standing their for all eternity… Just waiting… That’s it. Not resolution.. No nothing…

I just really liked this book. I’m considering buying it paperback so that I have a physical copy, but only time and money will tell.

“I know.” He leaned back, looking into her eyes. “But I’m not going anywhere, Jenny. I’ll fight to stay with you.”

.

“Just read it. You do that all the time.” “Do what?” “Ask me a question when you’re already finding out the answer.” “Is that a complaint?” she asked. “Because I don’t think you know me well enough to start–” He sighed. “Just read it.”

Review: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

My Rating: 5 stars2

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school… again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’ master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.

Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus’ stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school, but that isn’t what he should be worrying about. Percy feels as if he’s always being watched. He’s been noticing that he can read Greek text, but can’t read English text. He says he has dyslexia, but he soon figures out why he can read Greek and not English.

Percy and his classmates take a field trip to a museum which is filled with Greek mythology. Each day Percy is tormented by Nancy Bobofit constantly and this does it. His teacher pulls him aside and the next thing he knows she has disappeared but some creature is now there. She starts telling him that his time is up.

Percy is now being rushed to Camp Half-Blood by Grover and Percy’s mother. Percy soon finds out that Zeus’s lightning bolt– which wields the power that Zeus possesses. Zeus is threatening war if his bolt is not returned by the summer solstice. Although, this war will make WW1 & WW2 look like nothing.

my thoughts 2

Okay, I’m like the last human being to read this book… And I’m 19 years old! I should have read this when it came out! Not over 7 years later. I wish I could have been one of those that can say “I grew up with Percy Jackson” or “I grew up with Harry Potter”. Well, I didn’t grow up in either… I can tell what your thinking… I honestly couldn’t tell you what I grew up with… Maybe Junie B. Jones? The Bailey School Kids? Magic Treehouse? Does those count?? :)

Anyways, I was surprised at how much I liked this. Considering it is a children’s book because Percy is (I think) 12 years old so it’s considered children’s. But again, that shouldn’t matter. I honestly didn’t feel like Percy was a “little kid” the way he acted.. He was so mature and brave… A lot more brave than any other.. 20 year old I’ve seen!

I did however watch the movie when it came out and I’ve seen it numerous times. When The Sea of Monsters came out and everyone was talking about it, I kept hearing that the movie sucked and that it was nothing like the books. I heard the same for this book as well. I was shocked when I heard it because I really enjoyed the movie, and I still do.

But, if I had to choose, I’d choose the book. Always. There was so much more to the book than the movie.

Okay, enough about the movie… Getting side-tracked here. Besides the obvious character, whom I’m not going to mention, I enjoyed all the characters in some fashion. This character whom I didn’t like, still is very interesting.

I’m beyond obsessed with Greek mythology. I have been since 7th grade when I was taught about it in school. I found it so interesting about the gods and goddesses. While reading this book I even saw some gods/goddesses I’ve never heard about.

I’m so excited to read Sea of Monsters and the rest as well as the Heroes of Olympus series!
