The carnival is in town and charlie is finally home. The fresh smell of bunt cakes, the cries of children not winning at the rigged carnival games and the most terrifying rides make charlie happy. But when she meets the guy of her dreams, her plans change and spiral in an opposite direction. While spiraling she learns to let loose and let go in order to live life. Carnival is a book that reminds that living is only possible if you let go and let it happen.
The characters in Carnival are lively, real and a great representation of life when you don’t know what to do after living a constructive life. Charlie is a great girl, with a plan to go to college with her best-friend. She is a smart, funny, thoughtful girl who evolves into a storm of spontaneous. To make her any better, Blue is the guy that gives Charlie a reason to be spontaneously fun. Blue himself is a spontaneous question mark because of the way he moves around without anyone noticing; besides the side that keeps silent, he is thoughtful, cool,sexy guy who knows how to live. Summer, who is Charlie’s best-friend, is a free-living spirit with a desire to got to school. She is a great inspiration for charlie to take risks while till being safe in life; Summer is a very important part of Charlie, they’re like each other’s half. Dylan is a different kind of person because of how he’s acted about certain things, I feel like he was the drama queen of the whole book. There were so many characters in their clique that writing about them all would keep you here for hours.
Basically the book was mostly about figuring out life to the best of your ability while having fun, and I mean felt this theme was dominant in the story. The theme was consistent throughout the whole story making it really fun to read the book. But not to give anything away from the plot, theres romance of Blue and Charlie, action of family problems and drama of where togo in life. This book deserves a lot of praise because of everything fitting in and working well together. I rate this book a 5 but with a warning that 17+ only read this book, because of the content in it. Besides my warning, this book is amazing and you guys should definitely purchase this book. So thanks for reading this book review and I had a pleasure reading this book and I think you guys would too. So I love you guys and have a great day.
Prom, a disaster waiting to happen. No boyfriend, blamed for something that wasn’t her idea and stricken by the idea that her love doesn’t love her. Things aren’t going well and to make it any worse she’s sent away to camp for a month missing the summer that everything could change. Maybe it’s possible that the worse things can turn into the best thing. A thrilling adventure, unmasking some of the problems with high school. A great book that just made life better for me.
Laura Paulings characters are just amazing, real and have great development that compliments the plot. The main character, Cassidy, was the best female character I have read about the whole year. I mean her character development was the greatest in realizing many things and she was real and easy to grasp the jist of her. Zeke, the hotness and compassionate guy, he was the best kind of guy because no matter what he was always there for Cassidy and shown a care for her since day one. Jasper, who was the craziest guy ever in the whole entire book, showed no care at any of the time for Cassidy only just to get essays (talk about a relationship with benefits). He absolutely disgusted me and definitely made me hate guys like him so much more. Micheal, who was the nerd who was oblivious to any facts of love, he absolutely pissed me off with not knowing how Cassidy felt about him. I mean it was made pretty clear that she liked him but he didn’t read the signals. Lastly, even though there are more characters these are the most important, Julia. She was Cassidy’s best friend and the most predictable girl or like the girl in the school who is the most popular but who is nice is her. All of the characters were fun and enjoyable to read about.
So the story was basically about a girl who takes the heat ,for her best friend Julia (aka her cousin), for a stupid prank and gets her life turned up by being sent to a juvenile delinquent recovery program. While being sent away, she’s met the most boyishly cute guy with an exception, he’s a delinquent. Well maybe not, but as senior year approaches new lines become crossed, trust becomes scarce and love, well it comes in threes. This book was amazing and had a built in fun experiences, guaranteeing a fun, happy day for any reader. I enjoyed this book and came to find out that I absolutely love YA contemporaries. So I give this book a 5 and I definitely recommend it to hopeless romantics like me.
Love you guys,
Willow Carlye, an upstanding citizen who works for the Ministry (the government of the New Republic) making policies for the well-being of others. While taking a business trip, she goes against the policies made by her and lives life for herself one time. For her mistakes she is rewarded with losing her job for living her life. When isolation starts to get unbearable, she gets contacted by a Camelia member and is told about what’s going on. As soon as she finds out what it actually feels like to live she’s addicted to the adventure. But as her adventure is starting, she goes through a web of lies just to find the truth.
Willow Carlyle was an isolated person who made policies that restricted every aspect of anybody’s life. She evolves to this woman who wanted an adventure to find out the list of lies she’s been told to act like an upstanding citizen. She definitely becomes the strong female lead, and loses her feeling as an isolated human being. Warren Lake or Minister Lake is the head of the government and has a history regrets. While being the liar of the characters he is a man who wants the best for his family or loves but finds a bad way to do things instead of being the guy to live with being a white hat hero. Warren isn’t necessarily the villain but in many ways he portrays himself as a villain. Ven is a beautiful guy who is on two sides of the coin instead of one and is a guy that keeps to himself but interacts with strangers in different ways. He is a confusing character to understand but he turns out to be an easy character to understand because he’s like a regular guy always wanting things he can’t have. Ianthe is a very intense character because of all of the things she’s been through but she is a nice person and can be very funny. This character grabbed attention as soon as she waltzed into the story, it was fun to read about a girl who actually feels real with a struggle.
So I really enjoyed reading this book to the point I was begging the book to make new pages for me to read. I enjoyed this book because of the great character development shown as well as the humor that the book had exhibited. This book definitely was for me because as soon as I read about it I had to read it and share it with you guys. Like the book totally drew me in like a moth to a light, it was like fate pushing us together. Ok, let’s not go to far with me and this book being fated for each other but because of the book I thought I could get away with it. Anyways on with the rating, drum roll please, dum dum dum dum the book receives a 5 star rating and a I DEFINITELY recommend everybody over 15 read this book. Before I go I have one last thing to say…… The book is amazing and you guys should read it and those people hoping for spoilers there aren’t any here so get the book and get reading. So I hope you enjoyed the book review and come back for more, bye loves.
P.S. This is a trilogy series, so I’m so excited for the second books and hope you guys are just as psyched as I am. 🙂
Question, What kinda of guy do you like a Fiction guy or a Real guy? I mean like don’t get me wrong I love me some fictional male characters. Nothing like some paranormal vampires being in love with you, right? But like Daemon in Obsidian, he’s hot and perfect but not like a real guy who really works hard to get you and doesn’t use you for his family purpose, like really. I think I like real guys better, they make mistakes and work hard to correct it. But also when your with a real guy you don’t know your destiny, your basically on a roller coster that you don’t where it turns or a car where you have no idea where you’re heading. With any real person, you have no set destiny meaning your end is unpredictable. With fictional characters, the ending is sometimes predictable and you know where it’s heading when its at the end. So I realized, without real guys it is like a life without meaning which is pointless; and if every guy was perfect, there’s no diversity (where’s the fun in that), so therefore I like me some real and hardy guys. Like just last night I met the realest guy you could ever meet, I mean he told the truth about anything and everything. I mean like no lies and he was happy to tell it like it was. But what this says,to me, is that real is more truthful and fictional is just so many lies. But this is my opinion, What’s yours?
Anyways, So this is what I think, tell me what kind of guy you like?
Love Ms. Slayer
