When Shalini’s father gets a new job in L.A., she is torn away from her life in India and the boy to whom she’s been betrothed since she was three. L.A. is so different, and Shalini dresses and talks all wrong. She isn’t sure she’ll survive high school in America without her fiancĂ©, Vikram, and now she has to cope with her mom’s homesickness and depression. A new friend, chill and confident Renuka, helps Shalini find her way and get up the courage to join the Food4Life club at school. But she gets more than just a friend when she meets Toby—she gets a major crush. Shalini thinks she loves Vikram, but he never made her feel like this.
In Lovetorn, Shalini discovers that your heart ultimately makes its own choices, even when it seems as if your destiny has already been chosen.

Author Kavita Daswani has always been fascinated by child marriages and betrothals, and this story of a traditional girl from India, who is exposed to so many more freedoms and experiences after being dropped in a completely alien culture, is a fresh and contemporary look at the subject.

 I'm don't honestly know what to feel about this book. First off our main character is likable but but doesn't always click with her self, if that makes any sense. She makes so decisions that I can't see a person like her making. Don't get me wrong is was a good book with a good story to tell, but along with Shalini (our main character) odd actions the book is just to short.If the book was a few chapters longer or had an epilogue I felt that all these little lose ends could be dealt with and we could have found out what her final decision was.

Over all a pretty good book, but need a little something more.

I got this book through the Goodreads Firstreads program.

Samantha Ruiz has a freak gene that makes her turn invisible, or ripple. She can’t control it, and it’s getting worse. Afraid of becoming a lab-rat, Sam keeps her ability secret, until fellow runner Will Baker sees her vanish into thin air. Will promises secrecy and help, and Sam begins to fall in love.
Together, the two discover there are worse things than being a scientific curiosity. Someone’s been killing people who possess Sam's gene. A mysterious man from France sends letters that offer hope for safety, but also reveal a sinister connection with Nazi experiments.
The more time Sam spends with Will, the less she can imagine life without him. When Sam uncovers secrets from her past, she must choose between keeping Will in her life or keeping Will safe.

This is the story of Sam a girl with a secret, a secret she can't control. So when will sees her disapper he promises to help and to keep her seceret, because he has secrets of his own.

I really enjoyed this book, it was a fun read with a good plot. Our main charcter actual has a brain and doesn't just go with everything Will says. Her best friend isn't the best but pretty realistic. The journal entreies are very disturbing, but fit in well with the store. So worth the read and thanks Cidney Swanson (the author) for sending me a e-book copy!

WWW Wednesdays (#1)

W. W. W. Wednesday is hosted by Should Be Reading . Here's how it works... Each Wednesday I will answer the following questions:
What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you'll read next?

Currently Reading:

The Curse of the Wendigo (The Monstrumologist #2) - An interesting book so far and if it's like 1st book it doesn't have a romance.




What did you recently finish reading?

Phaze Doubt (Apprentice Adept #7)- An odd end to an odd series

Torn (The Missing #4)- A nice continuation of the series, but not the best of the series.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish (Hitchhiker's Guide #4) and Mostly Harmless (Hitchhiker's Guide #5)  -  Odd books in an odd series.





Jenny Pox (The Paranormals #1)- A good read, but it has a lot of sex for YA. Also it's free on kindle. 


What do you think you'll read next?


The Adoration of Jenna Fox (Jenna Fox Chronicles #1)- This one has been on my to-read list since a friend recommended it and I finally picked it up from the library (along with all the other books on my what I think I'll read next) .

There You'll Find Me- A random pick it looks like a quick, cute read. 






Will Grayson, Will Grayson- I've read and enjoyed both of these authors and hope this book can live up to my expectations.

Marcelo In The Real World- My Goodreads recommendations seem to think I desperately need to read this book, so here it goes!
