With the intrigue of Pretty Little Liars and plenty of romance, bestselling author Sarah Strohmeyer weaves a story of secrets and lies—set in a funeral parlor.

Growing up in a house of female morticians, Lily Graves knows all about buried secrets. She knows that perfect senior-class president Erin Donohue isn’t what she seems. She knows why Erin’s ex-boyfriend, hot football player Matt Houser, broke up with her. And she also knows that, even though she says she and Matt are just friends, there is something brewing between them—something Erin definitely did not like.

But secrets, even ones that are long buried, have a way of returning to haunt their keeper.
So when Erin is found dead the day after attacking Lily in a jealous rage, Lily's and Matt’s safe little lives, and the lives of everyone in their town of Potsdam, begin to unravel. And their relationship—which grew from innocent after-school tutoring sessions to late-night clandestine rendezvous—makes them both suspects.

As her world crumbles around her, Lily must figure out the difference between truth and deception, genuine love and a web of lies. And she must do it quickly, before the killer claims another victim.

The Secrets of Lily Graves is a YA contemporary murder mystery that hook me from the first chapter.

Lily Graves is a seventeen year old girl that lives in the funeral home belonging to her family and within a fully matriarchal environment, she lives with her grandmother, aunt and mother. Lily is a peculiar girl because of the environment in which she grew up, and because she has a fascination with death and had been reading books about anything related to death, anatomy and everything she needs to know to work in the family business (she worked on her first corpse when she was fifteen), she has a dark sense of humor and her wardrobe consists of black dresses.

The story begins when Lily has an altercation with Erin because her boyfriend Matt (and Lily´s friend) breaks up with her the previous night, Erin goes and confronts Lily and they end up in a physical fight. And the next day Erin is found dead, and the prime suspects are Matt and Lily.

The plot unfolds slowly like a good mystery, giving us clues slowly, so the story kept my interest throughout the book and I was dying to know who was the murderer, and there was a time that I suspect almost everyone, but I did guess about who killed Erin.

The romance isn´t the main plot, but it´s more like a sub-plot, but I really liked the sort of friendship-romance between Matt and Lily.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book, I love murder mystery books like this one, that hook me from the start, that kept my interest up and had me hanging by a thread until the last moment and about the ending I would have liked it a bit more elaborate, but I can live with it.

Chapter One – GUARDIAN by Alex London
At night, they disposed of the bodies. There was no ceremony, no ritual, no remembrance.
“They’re human,” some argued.
“They were human,” said others. “Now they’re meat.”
“We have to study the infection,” said the doctor.
“We have to contain it,” said the counselor and gave her orders. “Burn the bodies.”
A work detail was tasked with the burning. One by one, in the dead of night, green uniforms with white masks hauled corpses to the pile. The corpses were webbed with black veins, their entire network of blood vessels visible through the pale skin. Dried blood obscured their faces and each had a single hole in the temple by the eyes, where the killing bolt went in. They were put down like livestock, burned like sacrifices.
As the bodies crackled, the doctor watched the flames, her face half in shadow, half dancing in firelight. “I believe there is a cure for this,” she said.
The counselor, standing beside her, nodded, but did not turn to look her way. “Your cure is worse than the disease.”
“You believe that?”
“It’s the truth. Your way is treason.”
“You’re in denial,” the doctor said. “This is going to get worse if we don’t stop it.”
“It’s a new world, Doctor,” the counselor replied. “We can’t turn back the clock.”
“Even to save people’s lives?”
“These”—the counselor gestured at the bodies—“are not people.”
“If it spreads?”
“Is it spreading?”
The doctor watched the young members of the work detail tossing the bodies on the pyre. They moved with the assurance of youth, the kind of attitude that allowed them to stare infection and death in the face and believe it would never touch them. “I don’t know.”
“It is your job to know.”
“I can hardly understand it. The blood turns against the body. Itching, burning. Then, expulsion. Half of them bleed out.”
“And the other half?”
The doctor clenched her jaw. “They haven’t bled out yet.”
“They are in pain?”
“They can’t communicate, but we have to restrain them to keep them from scratching their skin off with their fingernails.” The doctor sighed. “So, yes, they are in pain.”
“Put them out of their misery,” the counselor ordered.
“But, we can still learn—”
“Those are the orders.” The counselor walked away, two green uniforms trailing her into the jungle. The doctor took off her white smock, pulled the blue gloves from her hands with a loud synthetic snap, and stood before the flames. She watched her latest failed experiments turn to smoke and ash in the bonfire, every bit of blood boiled away, with all the information it might have contained.
She had ideas, dangerous to share; but if she didn’t find a way, she feared, this sickness would go further than any of them could imagine. She would record a message in case she failed. She hoped that someone would still be alive to receive it.

C. Alexander London grew up in Baltimore, Maryland. He's an author of nonfiction for grown-ups (under a slightly different not very secret name), books for teens (as Alex London...see above), and, younger readers. He once won a 12-gauge skeet-shooting tournament because no one else had signed up in his age group. He's a Master SCUBA diver who hasn't been diving in way too long, and, most excitingly, a fully licensed librarian. He used to know the Dewey Decimal System from memory.
He doesn't anymore.
While traveling as a journalist, he watched television in 23 countries (Burmese soap operas were the most confusing; Cuban news reports were the most dull), survived an erupting volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a hurricane on small island in the Caribbean, 4 civil wars (one of them was over by the time he got there, thankfully), and a mysterious bite on his little toe in the jungles of Thailand. The bite got infected and swollen and gross and gave him a deep mistrust of lizards, even though it probably wasn't a lizard that bit him.
Although he has had many adventures, he really does prefer curling up on the couch and watching some good television or reading a book. He enjoys danger and intrigue far more when it's happening to somebody else.
He lives in Brooklyn, NY.

You can read my review of Reboot - here
The sequel to the action-packed Reboot is a can't-miss thrill ride, perfect for fans of James Patterson, Veronica Roth, and Marie Lu.

After coming back from death as Reboots and being trained by HARC as soldiers, Wren and Callum have finally escaped north, where they hope to find a life of freedom. But when they arrive at the Reboot Reservation, it isn't what they expected. Under the rule of a bloodthirsty leader, Micah, the Reboots are about to wage an all-out war on the humans. Although Wren's instincts are telling her to set off into the wilderness on their own and leave the battle far behind, Callum is unwilling to let his human family be murdered. When Micah commits the ultimate betrayal, the choice is made for them. But Micah has also made a fatal mistake . . . he's underestimated Wren and Callum.

The explosive finale to the Reboot duology is full of riveting action and steamy love scenes as Wren and Callum become rebels against their own kind.

I read Rebel a week after I read Reboot, almost back to back and I was dying to read what would happen with the main characters - Wren and Callum. Also I had two really good surprises with this book, the first being that I didn´t know that this book was with dual point of view, alternating between Wren and Callum. And the second, was that I didn´t know that this was the last book, I had the idea that it was a trilogy; so these were really good surprises for me.

Rebel is more violent than its predecessor, but the story is fast-paced, the story flows and is quite gripping, so I read it relatively fast, it has a lot more action (a little gory), more romance (NO love triangle), is more intense, and with a very good and satisfying ending.

The story begins moments after Reboot ended, so I got to see their reception in the Reboot reservation, get to know Micah the leader of the reservation and his minions, the only one that stood out was Jules, which I didn´t like at all. And Micah is the trigger for a big decision that Wren makes, that maybe otherwise might never have happened.

Something that I really liked was the romance between Callum and Wren; and although it isn´t the main plot, it´s really important (at least for me it was); and I really enjoyed Callum´s POVs, because he´s really funny, and we get to see how he thinks, how he feels and his feelings for Wren. I liked that even though he knows that Wren can defend herself and she doesn´t react emotionally like most reboots, he really wants to protect her and he sees her for who she really is and not only for her number 178, which is what the rest of the reboots and humans see in her. Something that I like about him is his sense of humor (he made me laugh).

Overall, I LOVED this book! and I recommend this book to all fans of YA dystopian fiction.

She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .

Is that what she’s supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
Release date: August 5th 2014

He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.
Hearts get infiltrated.

Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

Review: Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman

Title: Prisoner of Night and Fog (Prisoner of Night and Fog #1)
Author: Anne Blankman
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Release date: April 22nd 2014

Format: eARC

Rating: 3.5/5

In 1930s Munich, danger lurks behind dark corners, and secrets are buried deep within the city. But Gretchen Müller, who grew up in the National Socialist Party under the wing of her "uncle" Dolf, has been shielded from that side of society ever since her father traded his life for Dolf's, and Gretchen is his favorite, his pet.

Uncle Dolf is none other than Adolf Hitler.

And Gretchen follows his every command.

Until she meets a fearless and handsome young Jewish reporter named Daniel Cohen. Gretchen should despise Daniel, yet she can't stop herself from listening to his story: that her father, the adored Nazi martyr, was actually murdered by an unknown comrade. She also can't help the fierce attraction brewing between them, despite everything she's been taught to believe about Jews.

As Gretchen investigates the very people she's always considered friends, she must decide where her loyalties lie. Will she choose the safety of her former life as a Nazi darling, or will she dare to dig up the truth—even if it could get her and Daniel killed?

From debut author Anne Blankman comes this harrowing and evocative story about an ordinary girl faced with the extraordinary decision to give up everything she's ever believed . . . and to trust her own heart instead.

I´m not a history buff (that´s my brother), what I know about Hitler is what I was taught in school (years ago) and sometimes I had read a history book more for gossip that for other thing, just because I want to know more about a character that caught my attention in a movie or novel, but that´s it. So all my knowledge of Adolf Hitler is on from the period of the World War II, I didn´t know much about him before the war, which is part of the plot or the background of this book, since Prisoner of Night and Fog follows Gretchen Müller a seventeen year old German girl that is very close to Adolf Hitler, in 1931.

Gretchen was educated from childhood that Jews are monsters, subhumans, all Germany's problems are due to them and that she never must speak to them; also because his father died protecting her "uncle" Adolf Hitler, her family has a "safe" place in the National Socialist party and she is one of the favorites of his "uncle" Dolf, and she goes to picnics with him, sometimes goes out to with him to his favorite restaurant and he visit her family home regularly.

So when she´s approached by a young Jewish journalist that claims to have evidence that could prove that her father didn´t died a hero or martyr trying to save Hitler, but that he was killed, she´s initially don´t believe him because of her prejudices and because everyone in the National Socialist party have told her many times how it was that her father died heroically, but then she discovers something that can refute everything she knows about his death. Thta´s why she decides very reluctantly to ally with Daniel Cohen, the Jewish journalist and they slowly unraveled the truth about what happened to Gretchen´s father. Besides she realizes that many of the things she was taught by her family and her uncle Dolf about the Jews aren´t true.

I usually don´t read many books of the genre historical fiction, because I know me and it takes me a long time to read them, mainly because I spend  a lot of the time googling some facts or person mentioned in the book to see if it´t true to the history (that happened to me with this book), but since I read the synopsis was very curious to read it. I read the author's notes and it said that most of the events and characters are real, the only fictional characters are Gretchen, her family, all the people in the boardinghouse where she lives and Daniel Cohen. But the only name besides Adolf Hitler that I recognized was Eva Braun, who in the story is Gretchen´s best friend.

About the main characters: Gretchen is a very naive and trusting girl that really believes everything that had been taught about the Jews, she respects and loves her uncle Dolf and she´s afraid of her brother Reinhard. And Daniel he´s a young journalist that is following a story about Gretchen´s father, he wants to succeed as a journalist but he´s also a good person that care for others.

Overall, although I felt the beginning a little bit slow, I did liked the story, it´s written really well and it´s surrounded by mystery, intrigue, clandestinity, secrets and the last chapters are very interesting and engrossing.

The summer before senior year of high school. It’s supposed to be one of the biggest summers of her life, but Pippa is headed to an art program she has no interest in. The one saving grace is it’s in Italy. And when the opportunity strikes, she decides to ditch the program and travel Italy accomplishing her own list of goals. Things like swimming in the Mediterranean Sea, eating a whole pizza in one sitting…and falling in love with an Italian boy!

As she explores the famous cities of Rome and Pompeii, Pippa finds herself falling for two boys: a local guy she knows is nothing but trouble and a cute American archaeology student who keeps disappearing and reappearing at the strangest moments. Will Pippa find her true love before her parents find out the truth about her summer program?

Wish You Were Italian is a perfect summer read because it´s a light, adorable, cute, with a friendship and romance that felt a little like serendipity or that was meant to happen, with a bit of adventure and a great setting because is Italy!.

The story begins with Pippa being sent by her parents to Italy, to study an art course which she didn´t want to go, because she had other plans for this summer, which now they´re ruined; so in a fit of rebellion once she´s in Italy, she decides not to go to school and explore Italy by herself. Her best friend gave her a journal, in which she was assigned tasks that she must do once in Italy and during the course of the summer. Her first task is to make a top 10 list of things she wants to do in Italy, so Pippa´s list includes: visit Pompeii, swimming in the Mediterranean Sea, having a conversation in Italian and the last thing on her list is to fall in love with an Italian boy, which she initially sees as impossible.

I loved the friendship and all encounters between Pippa and Darren, I loved everything about them! Darren is the good guy of the story, while Bruno has a bad boy vibe.

I must say that this book didn´t felt very realistic since for Pippa everything goes well and almost everything that happens is as it was destined to happen, nevertheless I loved this book!, it´s a really cute book and I had fun reading it. I highly recommend it to those looking for a light summer read.

A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
True love.
The truth.

We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.

Read it.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.

We Were Liars is one of those books that you may like or not, and in my case I find it amazing, unique, brilliant, shocking and heartbreaking, it´s a book very well written and it´s a very quick read (I read it in one day). The story was very engaging, I love these type of mystery stories, it was thrilling with a surprising twist that really blew me away.

And it is advisable to read it without knowing more about the plot, that way it´ll surprise you.


We Were Liars tells Cadence Sinclair story, a girl who belongs to a wealthy family that owns a private island where she spends every summer since forever. There every summer she sees her cousins​​, aunts and grandparents, all the Sinclair are perfect, blond, attractive and they appear to be the perfect family even if things aren´t perfect.

Two years ago Candence had an accident on the island, which she doesn´t remember, when she returns to the island after a time away she tries to remember what happened to her but nobody wants to talk about the incident.

And that's all I'll tell about this book, since seriously the less you know about the story the better.

Review: Reboot by Amy Tintera

Title: Reboot (Reboot #1)
Author: Amy Tintera
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release date: May 7th 2013

Rating: 4/5

Buy onAmazon | B&N | BookDepository
Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).

Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.

The perfect soldier is done taking orders.

I really liked the idea of ​​Reboot, I felt it fresh and new in the world of dystopian novels.

Reboot takes place in a world where a virus known as KDH killed the entire population and the only place that survived was Texas, with the help of HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation) and one of the consequences of virus is that the people dying from the virus have the possibility of returning as a reboot. The reboots are dangerous (at least that's what the HARC says), because they´re stronger, faster than humans, have the ability to heal and are hard to kill, so all reboots are captured by the HARC and trained to work for them as soldiers but with many restrictions; they´re more like their prisoners and if they disobey an order they´re eliminated. And the longer they stay dead, the better are their skills, but they´re less emotional than humans.

Wren 178 was dead for 178 minutes, making her the most lethal of the reboots, so all of them humans and reboots alike give her a wide berth, which is funny contrasts with her appearance because she´s petite in height and she doesn´t look like a threat. She doesn´t have as many emotions as others, so she doesn´t have inhibitions about killing people, because she follow the HARC orders. Wren is okay with the kind of life she has led for the past 5 years at the mercy of HARC, she had never disobeyed orders and agree with them; this until she meets Callum 22, with all his questions makes her start to rethink everything that she thought was okay.

Callum is a new reboot that was only dead for 22 minutes, making him more human and not a good reboot because he doesn´t obey orders. He´s very cheerful, always smiling, he asks a lot of questions and is the new rookie that Wren must train, so she sees him as her responsibility.

Reboot is a book with an interesting and original idea, is fast-paced, action-packed, with a gradual romance (the couple is really cute), with a very satisfying ending without a cliffhanger. I liked it a lot!. This is a good book for fans of dystopian novels.

Favorites quotes
“It was true that all Reboots were attractive, in a way. After death, when the virus took hold and the body Rebooted, the skin cleared, the body sharpened, the eyes glowed. It was like pretty with a hint of deranged. Although my hint was more like a generous serving.” 

"Try not to scream when I break your bones. It bothers me. You can cry if you want; that´s fine."

After Brandon dies, the rumors start to spiral out of control. In this remarkable debut novel, four Healy High students tell all they "know" about Alice--and in doing so reveal their own secrets and motivations, painting a raw look at the realities of teen life. But in this novel from Jennifer Mathieu, exactly what is the truth about Alice? In the end there's only one person to ask: Alice herself.
