The Pearl by John Steinbeck: Review

The time you have all been waiting for is here! My first rant/vent review! I had SO MANY problems with this book. Where to start?

SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!

Rating: * 1/2 stars

Initial Reaction After Finishing This Book:


I think I might've been on the verge of tears when I finished this book. Not out of joy or anything like that, but just excitement that I wouldn't have to torture my eyes another second. However, this book wasn't horrible enough for one star, so... let's get to it.

The Good:


1. The Depth. I did like the depth of thought that Steinbeck put into this book, and how nothing is a coincidence, up from Coyotito's name down to when Steinbeck describes ants. It was cool to...yeah that's all I got for this.

2. The Figurative Language. I am a huge fan of books that use figurative language as descriptors, in particular similes and metaphors *cough cough* City of Bones *cough cough*. So I liked that part of The Pearl as well.

The Bad:

1. The emotion. At least for me, this book invoked no emotion except hatred. Even when Coyotito dies! My classmates were all like:

And I was just like, "Oh, yeah, it's sad." But it didn't do the job a book is supposed to do when it comes to sad parts. The job that makes you want to just die because OMG IT'S SO SAD AND WAHHH MY LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. I'm looking at you The Fault in Our Stars. I think maybe it was because the book didn't really make you feel any emotional connection to the characters. I know I sound like an unemotional robot and a monster that doesn't think it's sad when a baby dies, but I THOUGHT IT WAS SAD. Just not as sad as it should have been.

2. The writing. I love descriptions in books, imagery and all that, it's all good, but this book? OVERKILL. The book will take like 3 pages to describe the Gulf of Mexico, and at that point, you just feel like this:


A paragraph, even a PAGE of descriptions is fine. But gosh, this was too much.

3. The Plot. When I was describing to my reading teacher WHY I didn't like this book, I said it was boring and lacked action. She looked utterly shocked, because well, the book has a TON of action. I know it does too. But it wasn't the kind of action I like. The action I like? The action that keeps your heart pounding. The action that makes you bite your nails. The action that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The action that makes you hyperventilate like Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory.



This book just didn't do that. So if I didn't like the action sequences a lot, how do you think I felt about the normal, everyday life parts?


4. The Characters. OH MY GOD. The two main characters in this book pissed me off SO MUCH. Let's see...

Kino- Kino is the main character in this book. He was a poor fisherman until he found The Pearl of The World!!!! The pearl starts bringing destruction to his family and himself, but yet he wants to keep it. I understand his motives but seriously? I would REALLY consider getting rid of an object that has caused several attempts on my life. Even if I was poor, it's not like I would rather DIE! Plus, he has this whole misconception that he can do ANYTHING because he's a man. JUST STOP.

Juana- Juana, Juana, Juana. She is described as being strong, like a lioness. Yet she... let's her husband beat her up. WHAT????? She was smart enough to try to get rid of the pearl that is bringing danger to her family. She was about to throw it in the river, but Kino catches her, and starts beating the crap out of her. She sees MURDER in his eyes, but she doesn't do anything. Oh, and also, she says she NEEDS A MAN. WOO-HOO! What a feminist! Whatever happened to A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle? Not to say I don't want to get married eventually, but saying she needs a man? She's not exactly what I think of as a strong, independent woman.

That's it. I'm done. PHEW. I feel better now.

So To Read Or Not To Read?
Unless you HAVE to read it for school like I did, I would NOT recommend this book. At all. AT. ALL.

Bye! Oh, BTW, my next review will be of Pandemonium. So stick around if you want a review that is HAPPY!!!!! :D

Top Ten Tuesday #3!

Hey people!

April 30: Top Ten Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book


Hmm... that's a tough one. Here goes nothing!
1. Dystopia(n). Really, I'm a sucker for Dystopian books. I think it's because I've had such a great experience with them. The Hunger Games, Divergent, Matched, Delirium... and now I can't stop reading these books.

2. Mythology. I LOVE reading mythology, and how ancient cultures believe things came to be. I especially will fall for mythology books with a modern spin. An example of a book like this, and one I really want to get my hands on, is The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter.

3. New York Times Bestseller. I know, I know... I shouldn't judge a book based upon it's praise alone, but if it makes it on this list, it's gotta be good! Plus, I aspire to write a book that will end up on this list... someday.

4. Eccentric. I love eccentricity. Everything about it. If a description for a book mentions an eccentric array of characters, immediately my brain goes DING! Gotta read it! 

5. Futuristic. Does this kind of go along with Dystopian?  Well, whatever. I love books with a futuristic setting, mainly because I like to see what kinds of new technologies authors can come up with.

6. (Insert favorite author's name here). Well, obviously! If one of my favorite authors writes a new book, I obviously want to read, since I know what great writers they are already.

7. Books that say they are read-alikes to one of my favorites. For example if a book says that it's perfect for fans of The Hunger Games, I go all, "That's ME!!!!!"

8. Classics. Obviously, books are classics because they are cherished and have been loved by many generations, so when I see a classic, I want to find out why everybody loves it so much!

9. A book that is what one of my favorite movies is based on. Take Confessions of A Shopaholic for example. I watched the movie first, and ADORED it, then found out it was based on a book, so I immediately wanted to pick up the book!

10. Romantic. I love fairy-tale romances and things like that, so if a book is romance (YA romance, mind you!) I immediately want to grab a carton of ice cream, read the book, and be depressed that my life isn't that perfect. ;)

That's my Top Ten!

Check out the lovely people who created this over here.

Bye guys! :)

April 23: Top Ten Books I Thought I'd Like MORE/LESS Than I Did


Alright, this is gonna be good!

1. The Hunger Games. I know RIGHT? I am so obsessed with THG that's it's hard to imagine I didn't have high expectations for it, even for a second! But I did. I heard of this book a long time before I actually read it, through chain mails that were like OMG DA HUNGER GAMES 4EVER CANT W8 4 CATCHING FIRE and I kind of ignored it. Then my brother told me about it, describing it about a fight to the death, and I was like, Ick, doesn't sound like my kind of book. Too violent. But eventually, the buzz around it grew so much, I decided to read it, even though I was POSITIVE I wasn't going to like it. Boy was I WRONG! :D

2. City Of Bones.  I HAD to include this book on the list. I didn't really want to read it at first, because the description was all demon-y and I'm not really into that stuff. But then I stumbled upon a picture of the actor portraying Jace in The City Of Bones movie, Jamie Campbell Bower, and I was like:


I need to read this book NOW. I still didn't expect to like it as I already mentioned, but I still took a chance because of the movie. THANK GOD! This book BLEW MY BRAINS with it's amazing-ness.

3. Awaken. This book... I had read a lot of reviews for this book, and they sounded really positive, and the description was cool, and the cover was pretty, but looks can be deceiving  I did NOT like this book as much as I thought I would, mostly because of one thing. Insta-love. It just makes me so mad and it's so annoying, like:


4. The Clique. As much as I wanted to hate this book, I liked it. It's one of those glossy, fluffy books that you love to hate, or is a guilty pleasure. For me, it's the latter. I just... I don't even know why I like this book.

5. The Book Thief. Another one of those, YOU DIDN'T THINK YOU WOULD LIKE THIS BOOK? moments. This book is stunningly unique, and it's hard to describe the plot, so obviously the description doesn't tell you very much about it. This book sounded kind of boring to me, but my brother had it because he had to read it for school, so I was like Eh, why not? And long story short, it was magnificent.

6. Tuck Everlasting. Fine, sue me. Tell me it's such a great book. A childhood classic. Beautiful. I ain't feelin' it. I went into this book hearing how AMAZING it was, and so I had high expectations. But when I read it, I felt like this:


7. Racing In The Rain. I thought this book would be great, because the last time I read something from a dog's POV, A Dog's Life by Ann M. Martin, it was. But this book fell flat, and was far less interesting than I thought it would be.

8. Fahrenheit 451. Basically, I had pretty decent expectations for this book, but it WAY exceeded them. It was beautifully written, and very powerful.

9. Article 5. I thought this book would be like a run-of-the-mill dystopian book, but it's plot was very unique, and I LOVED the characters.

10. Slaughterhouse-Five. They're called classics for a reason right? I thought these books were supposed to be good. But by the first 50 pages, I wanted to tear this book into shreds, and abandoned it. So it goes. (See what I did there?) ;)

That's my Top Ten!

And Top Ten Tuesday was created by these lovely people.

Have a good day/night! :)

PS. Sorry for my descriptions getting short at the end. I'm tired :p

I'm Trying!

Top Ten Tuesday REWIND -- pick a past topic you missed or one you want to revisit!

The Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I've Never Read



Okay so...

1. The Harry Potter Series- Yeah, I know. This sounds kind of ridiculous, but it's fine. When I was little and I wanted to read these books, my dad said no, because he's not a huge lover of the magic and sorcery and all that. At first I was upset, but over the years, I've kind of lost interest anyway. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate these books, they're just... I don't know. Something I don't plan on reading.

2. Any Percy Jackson books- These books, I actually PLAN on reading. I've been obsessed with Greek myths for quite a while so these book seem REALLY interesting, and I've heard great things about them. Other books just lodged themselves in my brain and I couldn't stop thinking about them until I read them, and so the Percy Jackson books just faded into the woodwork, and...yeah. I still want to read this!

3. Pride & Prejudice- Now this... this is just RIDICULOUS. I've wanted to read this book for AGES. I OWN a copy. But I still haven't read it. Why? I guess you could say I'm sort of old-school and seldom buy books. Usually I check them out from the magical and wonderful place that is my public library. But that adds on pressure, because books are due or have holds on them, so I don't have time to read the books I bought! And generally, I don't read two books or more at the same time. But I REALLY need to read this. I know I loved the movie!

4. Where The Red Fern Grows- I WISH I could read this book, but I can't bring myself to. I know the ending, and so when I held the book in my hands and was about to open the book, I started to tear up and get emotional and just couldn't read it because I would bawl my eyes out, although only one book I've EVER read has made me cry, and that wasn't even THAT sad. I'm weird.

5. Any Shakespeare- Maybe it's because I'm still fairly young, but I haven't read ANY books by Shakespeare, and I think that's kind of crazy. There is NO excuse for me. I OWN a copy of Romeo and Juliet, paperback, and on like 2 e-readers. But every time I try to pick up this book, my brain explodes with confusion, and I just put it back down. But soon enough I WILL read Shakespeare. I will.

6. Little Women- Another one of these "What the hell is wrong with me?" moments. I own this book on TWO e-readers, yet have only gotten about 100 pages into it. It wasn't any fault of the book when I stopped reading, my e-reader died and I was just too lazy to re-charge it, and it's been sitting somewhere gathering dust ever since. But one day, I will get back to this. I know I will love it, because the first 100 pages were AMAZING.

7. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass- This book is a CLASSIC. I really want to read it, but it's just another one of those books that quietly and patiently waits in my to-read shelf, not making itself shown and reminding me to read it. I love a good fantasy book, and I love Alice In Wonderland, both the old and new movies. I love the quirky, insane world Carroll creates. I know this is a MUST read.

8. The Giver- I have no explanation that is good enough to show WHY I haven't read this book yet, but I'l try to explain. This book has been everywhere as I was growing up. Every kids section I went to, they always proudly showed this book. It's at my past and present school libraries, and people have recommended to me several times. But the thing is: I didn't WANT to read this book. I don't know, it just didn't seem interesting, and so I never picked it up. I was on Goodreads maybe a couple of months ago and I saw this book and read the description, and I was like "I am SO reading this. It is MY kind of book." So  now I anxiously want to read. It's strange how a book I avoided so long is now climbing up to the top of my to-read list. It shows you how my tastes in books have evolved so much!

9. The Diary Of A Young Girl- Especially since Justin Bieber acted like a complete idiot at the Anne Frank house, I want to read this book, and find out more about Anne's story. I know she is an amazing person and an inspiration, but I want to know MORE. I have no clue WHY I haven't read this book yet, but I should and I will. 

10. The Little Prince- When I was little and my dad would take me to the library, he would pick out a few books for me that he thought looked really good and this was one of them. I wasn't very excited about this book, and probably read a few pages and then stopped. Simply put, I didn't like it.But I want to give it another chance, because it seems like it will be a nice little book that will make me feel like I'm a little girl again I can't believe I haven't read this book because, come on! It's such a popular children's book!

So that's my top ten! What are some books you can't believe you haven't read? Post in the comments! 

And don't forget to visit the lovely people who created Top Ten Tuesday over at The Broke And The Bookish!

Have a good rest of your day! 

Bye-bye! :)



Hoot by Carl Hiaasen: Review

Monday, April 15, 2013
So I ADORED this book the first time I read it, and love it even more now that I've re-read it!

I had to read this book for an at-home reading project, and at first I was like "Mer... I'd rather write about Divergent or The Hunger Games or something like that," But then I remembered how much I loved this book the last time I read it, and I was like "Hey! This could work!" So I read it and I'm glad I did! Onward to Narnia my review!

Rating: ***** stars!!!!!!
Initial Reaction After Finishing This Book:




In all honesty, I didn't actually READ this book the second time around, since I knew the plot so well. I skimmed and scanned through it. I was pretty happy when I finished this, because I finished this as soon as I finished my project, since I was doing both simultaneously. So maybe I didn't enjoy it as much as I did the first time, yeah I lied. But it wasn't the books fault, it was mine, since I didn't really READ it, and didn't take time to enjoy it. Since it was my fault I won't bring my rating down.

The Good:

1. The Characters. This is, I think the 3rd review I've brought up eccentricity in, but I don't care because it applies the most here. It's basically the entire reason WHY I love Carl Hiaasen's books so much: His characters are unlike any other I've read about. I love the flamboyant personalities, and the whole larger-than-life thing everybody has got going, it's just I love ORIGINALITY, this book was tearing apart from the seams with it!

2. The Plot. This book is basically about three kids who bring down a major corporation to save a few burrowing owls who are protected. I love the whole eco-warrior thing this book has, and the message conveyed in it is simple, yet strong: Stand up for what you believe in, even if you stand alone. I know the idea of three kids beating a huge company sounds a tad unrealistic, but it's what the book is trying to say that matters, that it's the thought that counts. It's a very inspiring story, and throughout it is peppered Hiaasen's unforgettable humor and wit. I know some people have a problem with the fact that this book swears, but to that I say: GET OVER IT. There are a million great things about this book and you don't need to freak out about one tiny detail. Seriously.

3. The Humor. I love Carl Hiaasen's sense of humor. To show you what I mean, I would have quoted some passages, but I no longer have the book. This is why I am starting to take notes when I read, so I can more accurately review the book, and quote passages that stood out to me easily. But yeah, kind of got side tracked there. My point is that Hiaasen has a unique brand of humor that stands out and makes me laugh. :)

The Bad:

Trick Question! :)

I had NO problems with this book. It tackles the important idea of environmental preservation in a light-hearted way, and I recommend it for young and old alike. Yep, you guessed it!

OH.MY.GOD.

Guys, please don't tell me I am the only one not aware of the fact that at 9 PM tonight the Catching Fire movie trailer comes out and asdfghjkl; I am SO EXCITED AND AM TOTALLY FANGIRLING BECAUSE GAH IT'S CATCHING FIRE DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?

You Have To Stop This by Pseudonymous Bosch: Review

Saturday, April 13, 2013
It was SO sad to have to say adieu to the Secret Series :(. Whoever Pseudonymous Bosch is, **cough, cough** Raphael Simon **cough, cough**, thank you for writing these books. They were a very satisfying and enjoyable read. The description via Goodreads:

You Have To Stop This by Pseudonymous Bosch
Rating: **** 1/2 stars :)
I always feared this day would come. A secret is meant to stay secret, after all. And now we've come to this: the fifth and final (I swear!) book in my saga of secrets.
A class trip to the local natural history museum turns dangerous, or perhaps deadly--and I don't mean in the bored-to-death way--when Cass accidentally breaks a finger off a priceless mummy. Forced to atone for this "crime" of vandalism, Cass and her friends Max-Ernest and Yo-Yoji go to work for the mummy exhibit's curator, only to be blamed when tragedy strikes. To clear their names--and, they hope, to discover the Secret--the trio must travel deep into a land of majestic pyramids, dusty tombs, mysterious hieroglyphs, and the walking dead. Egypt? Or somewhere much stranger . . .
In the midst of it all, the Secret still lurks. You're out there, reading and talking about it, and now my life--and chocolate supply--is in the greatest danger yet. So please, with a cherry on top, I'm begging you: you have to stop this!

Initial Reaction After Finishing This Book:



And...


Not that the book was sad or anything, it just makes me feel sad that the Secret Series is over. I bet now you're wondering like, "Does this chick get emotional at the end of EVERY series/trilogy/book?" Well, now that you ask, the answer is...YES. Books/trilogies/series that I actually like and/or love... finishing them feels like I'm losing a little part of me. I feel...empty, because everything about the books seems so REAL to me. The characters, the setting, and all that. If you think that's weird of me or creepy, well I'm NOT sorry. Deal with it. :) 
So anyway, this book was an EXCELLENT conclusion to The Secret Series. But there is something I would change. So let's get into it!

The Good:

1. The Characters. As always, the characters in this book are PERFECT, as in imperfect, because imperfection is perfection, and all the characters are quirky, from people who are obsessed with chocolate and cheese, to invisible magician/sorcerers, and all in between! Ms. Mauvais didn't appear very much in this book, but when she did, she dazzled in that terrifying way of hers. Also, we had some loyalties seem to change!


I know right? It's really crazy, but I'm not gonna tell you who! 



Hahaha I think Ms. Mauvais is rubbing off on me ;) 

But anyway, I just adore this book's characters because as mentioned in my review of The Help, I LOVE eccentricity, and this book is just DRIPPING with it!

2. The Plot. This book must have VERY strong lungs because it never stops to take a breath! Beginning to end I was completely engaged, and there was nary a dull moment. In almost all the books I read, the beginning is slow as a snail, and it's not until after the first 100 or so pages that I actually start becoming interested. This book wasn't like that though! It was really hard to put down! I DEVOURED this book, as I have every book in the series, because of the stunning originality. I can't think of a single book I've read that had remotely the same plot as this one. 

3. The Ending. Well, I liked the ending, but I didn't. I like how the author doesn't cram your brain with the whole, what happens next? Part, and leaves room for your imagination to wander, and come up with your own ideas about what happens next. I like how he EXPLAINED why he left you with an open ending, and didn't just end the book. What I don't like, I'll say in the bad. Oh by the way, something was revealed at the end of this book, but I'm not going to say, because I'm doing my best to make this review spoiler-free. All I'll say is, it made me feel like:


And at the same time, like:


I can't believe I didn't see it before. Like SO STUPID. But the good news is, if you don't call it beforehand, then you'll feel stupid too. So we can feel stupid together. :D

4. The Setting. As always in these books, there's travel. But this time it seemed SO COOL! They go to this huge Egyptian-themed casino/resort, and it's pretty cool. They have like, super huge ice cream sundaes, manicures, an artificial Nile, and one Royal Hotness. :) It's kind of funny, since in the beginning, they think they've landed in Egypt.

The Bad:

1. The Ending. I just... wanted more. I understand WHY Bosch ended this book the way he did, but he could've given us an epilogue or SOMETHING!!! And The Secret that they spent so long searching for, it's just like...


That's all. :)

So all in all, with the exception of this tiny thing, this was an AMAZING book!

To Read Or Not To Read?

If you have read the rest of the Secret Series, then READ!

If not, then read the Secret Series, then this. They are great books, I assure you.

See ya!

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury: Review

Saturday, April 6, 2013
Oh my. This book.

Summary via goodreads:

Ray Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future. Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden.

Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television “family.” But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn’t live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television.

When Mildred attempts suicide and Clarisse suddenly disappears, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known. He starts hiding books in his home, and when his pilfering is discovered, the fireman has to run for his life.

And the review:


Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Rating: **** stars!

Initial Reaction After Finishing This Book:

I felt like this:
But at the same time...this:


This book was awesome, don't get me wrong, and I would have loved to give it a 41/2 to 5 star rating, but I couldn't. Why? Well... I guess let's mix it up and start with the bad today!
The Bad:

1. The confusingness: Through no fault of it's own, this book was utterly confusing. That's the one and only reasons I couldn't give this book an even higher rating. I didn't even understand what was going on for at least 25% of this book. It may also be because this book is meant for high-schoolers, and even then, is generally read in high school classrooms and is discussed so it can be understood. Either that, or I'm just stupid. Take your pick :).

The Good:

1. The writing. If I could, I would quote passages of this book to show you what I mean but I no longer have the book on hand. :(. But the point is that Ray Bradbury's writing wasn't just that. It was art. It was so masterfully weaved together, and I could not BELIEVE the depth of thought that was put in to his similes and metaphors. Comparing someone's face to a clock is like WHAT?? So not a dead metaphor.

2. The Plot. I am generally very attracted to dystopian books, and love almost all of them that I read, regardless of the fact that sometimes what's outlawed or how society is structured is utterly realistic. But the world this book crafted, it scarily enough could happen. In our society, many people have been edging away from literature and towards TV. Our society does seem to be getting dumbed down. Why won't it become further dumbed down in the future?

3. The Characters. I did love all the characters and how there were several characters on both sides of the battlefield: Those opposed to reading, and those who weren't. The one thing I would have liked to see about characters would be more closure on whatever happened to Clarisse. Was she really killed? Hmm...

So overall, this book was great, I just couldn't give it a 5 star rating because some of it was beyond my grasp. I think in the future I'll re-read it so I can understand it better.

To Read or Not To Read?

To Read! Just take a little extra time reading this book so you can understand it better. :)


Do you hate me?

Friday, April 5, 2013
If not, then I think you should. I am still SO behind on posts! I've been working on one giant catch-up post, and I PROMISE I will finish this weekend, since I am grounded from the one thing that takes like 90% of my time: my iPod, I will have WAY more time to read and post! Since I last told you how behind I was, I have fallen farther behind. Like WAY farther. Since finishing Fahrenheit 451, I also finished the last book in the Secret Series, Hoot, The Pearl, and Pandemonium, and am currently reading Slaughterhouse-Five. Good god.
