blurb (4)

During her darkest hour, will she find the courage to seek the light? 

Marjorie has eluded both capture and death yet again, but her days are numbered. The old threat has resurfaced to endanger everyone she cares for and only a forged alliance with a member of royal blood will guarantee their safety and hers. 

However, in the midst of accepting who she is, Marjorie has to come to terms with the fact that those she considered friends may be anything but, and the mother she thought dead may have been missing against her will.

Excerpt (3)

The portraits of the Rousseau family members aligning the walls of the grand hallway definitely served as testament to Kyran’s statement. Many looked so much alike they could pass for Kyran’s and Alexi’s twins—one particular woman being identical to them. It was scary how much they resembled their long since deceased family members.

I opened my eyes, turning my head slightly to the left to look up at him. “He suffered before he died.” Dorian was whipped until his back was red, oozing blood, and raw. The pain he was forced to undergo was still very fresh and vivid in my head.

“So goes the legend,” Kyran acknowledged. “He paid a hefty price in order to ensure his bloodline. I’d say it was well worth it.” He touched my cheek with the back of his free hand. His gaze locked on my face. “You wouldn’t be here otherwise.”

Was it worth it? What would Dorian say had he survived his ordeal? Would he have agreed with Kyran’s statement?

“I guess I will never know,” I murmured. In my dream, he had appeared resigned to his fate, but one cannot know for sure. He could’ve changed his mind. Or his outlook in life could have been different had he been alive today.

The past week had changed my perspective of life even more than the accident that almost cost me my life over a year ago. I guess one can say the whole incident with Santos had matured me all the way. I definitely didn’t feel like the same nineteen-year-old girl anymore.

“Marjorie.” Kyran’s features hardened a bit. “The man we spoke of earlier is here to see you.”

Blog Tour | The Body Institute by Carol Riggs Book Review

The Body Institute

by Carol Riggs
Release Date: 09/01/15
Entangled Teen

Summary from Goodreads:
Meet Morgan Dey, one of the top teen Reducers at The Body Institute.

Thanks to cutting-edge technology, Morgan can temporarily take over another girl’s body, get her in shape, and then return to her own body—leaving her client slimmer, more toned, and feeling great. Only there are a few catches…

For one, Morgan won’t remember what happens in her “Loaner” body. Once she’s done, she won’t recall walks with her new friend Matt, conversations with the super-cute Reducer she’s been text-flirting with, or the uneasy feeling she has that the director of The Body Institute is hiding something. Still, it’s all worth it in the name of science. Until the glitches start…

Suddenly, residual memories from her Loaner are cropping up in Morgan’s mind. She’s feeling less like herself and more like someone else. And when protests from an anti–Body Institute organization threaten her safety, she’ll have to decide if being a Reducer is worth the cost of her body and soul…

BOOK REVIEW

The Body Institute is a coming of age young adult book about being physically fit and discovering who you are. It tells the story of Morgan Dey, one of the top Reducers at the Institute. What I loved about this book is that it explores the youth’s current question of identity and deals with the problem of overweight and underweight. The premise of having mind-switching, though quite similar to Lissa Price’s Starters Duology, as a means of helping someone lose their weight and make them healthy got me hooked into reading this story! I always loved to see more books with body-mind-switching thingies because I wished it were possible. Kinda sounds like possession but I don’t know.

What I personally didn’t like about the book is that it was a little bit slow paced at first so I did put it down like twice. I was waiting for the big twist to happen and then boom! There were a LOT of them and they’re so mind-blowing I can’t even. Then the ending. THE ENDING. Was like . . . no, I’m so not satisfied with it. There needs to have a sequel announced. It needs to have one! I’m not done with this!
I also really love how the romance between our main character, Morgan and Matt. It’s really cute but I feel there could’ve been more to it.

The Body Institute is a smart, captivating and thrilling read for any sci-fi dystopian YA book lovers! I highly recommend this read!

First Post, Fresh Start, Hello World!

Hi everyone!

I’ve got to admit that I was torn earlier whether I should make an ‘intro’ post as my first blog entry or rather post a review or something. I’ve seen other book blogs do the same. You see, I was thinking that few months or years later, I’d go back and browse my archives and laugh at my first post or something. But hey, I thought it’d be cool. So I decided to make an intro post so you guys could have an idea of what I’ll be blogging about and what I hope and such. Besides, I think having a book review or a meme as the first post would make it look so formal. And I think having an ‘intro’ post as the first one would be very personal and I like people who make things personal . . . ya feel meh?

ANYWAYS, let’s get to it!

I’m Louise and I’ll be blogging mainly about YA fiction books of all genres (probably except werewolves …. and possibly vampires). I have a co-blogger for Adult and New Adult Fiction, Sadie, who’s my cousin. We share only one account. But I doubt Sadie would be very much active in blogging. Anyways, first post, fresh start. Hello world! We’re the newest book bloggers as of August 15th. I have a lot of hopes for this book blog—to meet new blogger and author friends around the globe, to help authors get their books out THERE into the great big world, to participate in blog tours, blitzes and reveals, to reach a few months or last for years, to participate in challenges and memes, and so much more!

I think I’ll be posting a list of my blog goals tomorrow 😀 and I think it’s a terribly long list. Yeah, I’m kind of obsessed in listing stuff. So expect a lot of lists on this blog.

As for now, I’m looking for blogger friends! Care to be one? Oh, and I’m also looking for other book blogs to follow. So if you have one, don’t hesitate to let me know, I’ll check it out and let’s be virtual friends! Whahoo!

~Louise xoxo
