Where is Stacie?
Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee - Mary G. Thompson

Amy, Chelsea, Stacie, Dee is an outstanding book! For being a YA book, it is sort of dark, so if you do not want little ones knowing about rape or brainwashing, then don't let them read it. Otherwise, it is a great book- very well written. I could not put the book down all weekend and wanted to know everything that happened to Amy and Dee after they were kidnapped. Me being the true crime/forensics fanatic, I found myself comparing the story to many high profile cases that we have all seen on the news. 

 

Amy was kidnapped, along with her cousin Dee, 6 years previously. She was never meant to be taken, but she wound up back on her parents doorstep with no harm done to her. The next events include confusion, therapy, and Dee's mother wanting answers from Amy to the point of her screaming and throwing items around. Amy tries to be a normal girl and get back into her old routines when she was 10, but flashbacks haunt her and cause her to lose time throughout the day. She has to go back and make everything right with her kidnapper and for Dee. 

 

Check out the book by Mary G. Thompson on Amazon!

[REVIEW] Proper Omegas don’t drive cars by liliaeth

Proper Omegas don’t drive carsProper Omegas don’t drive cars by liliaeth
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Read on April 05, 2014 — I own a copy, read count: 1

 


Around 2.5 Stars rounding up to 3 Stars since I got myself sucked into the story regardless of the quality. If a story entertains its readers, then it is a success.

I am pretty torn as to how to rate this because the plots was contradicting each other. I'd say that the facts are just all over the place that it's hard to make sense of things.

Even though I have those concerns niggling me as I read, I just couldn't seem to put it down. Instead I got my nose stuck in it till I finished the whole story. That's a rare thing for a slow reader like me. This story can be considered a novelette length.

I am blaming my keen attraction to this story on my love for angsty story. Angst IS like crack to me. There's ample angst in this story to keep me on a constant high. I believe I am broken somewhere but I liked the way I am.

In this story, Dean was confined in an institution when his long hidden status as an omega was found out. Omegas are not even proper citizens. The most they are treated like pets and not even trusted enough to be home alone without a nanny. Disobedience are curbed instantaneously with a good spanking or some prefers swatting them with rolled newspapers. Omegas are believed to be mindless therefore they don't know what is good for them hence they have zero autonomy or rights in the eyes of the Alphas and Beta. It's all for their own good and safety.

While Dean was in custody, Sam and his dad was desperate to get Dean out of that brainwashing place. A place where they turn omegas into the perfect sex toy any Alphas could ever ask for. Was it too late for Dean now? That was a question to be answered in the coming sequel. Damnit!

The story is took place in an alternate universe setting. I found the societal setup intriguing. This story is purely focused upon the dynamics of Alpha, Beta and Omega. Naturally, the Alphas are those in authority or in position of power. Betas are their support basically. And those poor Omegas are less than human. Although some would cherish them especially for their breeding ability, they are those who would exploit them through sex slavery and other form of slaveries. The worst place an omega could find themselves in was the those illegal breeding farms.

Since the facts are so messed up, I am still trying to figure out whether Alphas are the only one who could get an omega pregnant or the betas could also do the same? And how does a female alpha impregnate their male omega? I don't see the alphas even the female ones would bear the baby since omegas regardless of their sex are supposed to be the ultimate breeding machines.

About the concern on that 'under-age' tag on the story, there isn't a need worry as any under-age events are rather implied and off page. To those who are seeking for romance in this story, there's none to be found here. The sequel could have such a possibility due to events unfolded in part one. Nope, no sexy times in this one also but as I've said, watch out for the sequel. I am the sequel would bring these missing elements and answer some of my questions. Otherwise, I could just hope for more delicious angst and be satisfied with that at least.


MAIN CAST:

Starring...

Dean Winchester, our sad and angsty omega who hides from his true identity.


A broken and vulnerable Dean is very adorable.


Sam Winchester is Dean's clueless brother who is a young alpha studying law.



John Winchester the irresponsible, missing father.

I hope to see him cry a little for his fuq up on parenting.


Victor Henriksen is the alpha that owns Dean.

Will he acknowledge Dean as an equal? Is he the kind of alpha a spirited omega like Dean wish for?

The Program by Suzanne Young
The Program - Suzanne Young

Wow. If you’re looking for something that will hook you and won’t let you go until the end, this is the book for you.

 

Sloane lives in an alternate version of the U.S., where suicide has become an epidemic. The only cure is The Program. Kids are closely monitored for symptoms and tagged when they are thought to be at risk. That’s when they are taken to The Program. Sloane and her boyfriend, James, try their best to put on a brave face, but the painful memories of her brother’s suicide still haunt them. I was not expecting this to suck me in the way it did. I listened to nearly the entire audiobook in one day, almost in one sitting. It was riveting. Young’s characters are real and raw. Her plot twists were awesome, and her writing was engaging the whole time. When I began listening, I expected another dystopia that was a copy of all the others out there, but I was very pleasantly surprised by how great this book is. It took me a little time to get used to the narration. After I got into it, I couldn’t stop listening. She did a great job with the character voicing and the flow. By the end, I just felt like I was listening to Sloane tell me a story.

 

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves thrilling, twisting plots that also contain a dose of sentimentality. I’ll be picking up the next one as soon as I can get my hands on it.
