Return to Me - James Oliver French

No Rating, DNF @ 30%


When the Msc starts to become just words to me and I can't to them and be invested in their story, I knew then that I should stop reading.

Book Review : Restore me Tahereh mafi
Restore Me - Tahereh Mafi
March 6-9

Juliette Ferrars thought she'd won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she's still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she's got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?

REVIEW: I loved this book I dont know how im supposed to wait for the next book. So this takes place after ignite me and shes taken over sector 45 and I love thats its in dule Pov . So we find out a lot Julliette is adopted and her parents are coming to find her and they were as much monster's as her adopted ones she has an older sister she didnt know about . I love warner and julliette but warner needs to work on openening up to to her I was sad they broke up but I think with everything going on maybe they need to not be together at this moment I still want them together. I still love kenji and hearing his backstory was so sad I did love seeing him trying to flirt with the new character so cute. The ending was crazy her freaking parents took her to some location and she finds old pictures of herself and one with warner omg cliffhanger. 

Yeah first question: why are you such a dick ?
Warner stands up . Sweetheart , he says quietly , I hope you will forgive me for what I'm about to do to his face.
Hey , asshole , I can still hear you.

Men , she says , are always so baffled by women's clothing. So many options about a body that does not belong to them. Cover up , dont cover up - she waves a hand no one can seem to decide. 
But thats not what I - Kenji tries to say.
You know what I think, she says , still smiling , about someone telling me what's legsl and illegal about the way I dress ?
She holds up two middle fingers.

I'm very tired I say to him please go directly to hell

“I love the sight of his naked body.
especially in these quiet, vulnerable moments. These brackets of time stapled between dreams and reality are my favorite. There's a sweetness in this hesitant consciousness - a careful, gentle return of form of function, I've found I love these minutes most for the delicate way in which they unfold. It's tender.
Slow motion.
Time tying its shoes

“She reaches down, her fingers trailing along the zipper of my pants, and the movement sears through me. My vision goes white. For a moment I hear nothing but my heart, pounding in my head.
“You are trying to kill me,” I say.
“Aaron.” I can feel her smile as she whispers the word in my ear. She’s unbuttoning my pants. “Please.”
And I, I am gone.” 

“You’re a total catch.” “I know, right? I keep trying to tell people.

“Idiots are highly flammable, love. Let them all burn in hell.”

Who says you can’t be cute and kick ass at the same time?” Kenji winks at me. “I do it every day.” 

I mean , I’ve always known I had a great face. But now I know, like, for sure that I’ve got a great face. And it’s just so validating.”

‘Time Bomb’ is like ‘The Breakfast Club’ with an awful school bombing; suggests teens might just be ticking ‘time bombs’
Time Bomb - Joelle Charbonneau

This was an extremely fast read for me; I flew through ‘Time Bomb’ in a matter of hours, and it almost felt like I was following a similar clock to the one that was ticking away in the book. Six exceedingly different students, not unlike seen with the setup in the movie ‘The Breakfast Club’, find themselves trapped together because of the horrific circumstance of someone having set off bombs at their school (although, conveniently, school isn't quite in session yet, so there aren’t mass casualties).
The wrecked and damaged school that has them stuck inside, suspicious of each other, is a reminder of all the problems that schools represent for schoolchildren today: the gun debate because of the mass shootings inside schools, bullying, kids and their constant need to live up to certain standards, whether it’s their own or others’, unchecked mental illness, prejudice of others based on appearances...and by bringing ALL of this up in the teens’ conversations and through their own perspectives, Charbonneau makes the novel about more than just the bombs going off at this high school. The different stereotypes that the kids all fit into, serve to remind us that, right up until the end, when we find out ‘whodunnit’ all these kids are essentially ticking ‘time bombs’ waiting to go off. If not then, they could at some point. I think it’s easy to focus on the event of the bombs in this book, and kind of ignore that it’s all emblematic of the tumultuouness of teenagehood.
While ‘Time Bomb’ held my attention all the way through, I think this all could have been delved into in a more concrete way, because there were a lot of open doors to explore the hard issues that these teens were going through. Overall though, it’s a definite page-turner as far as the story and action go, with a surprise twist at the end.
