Guest Post by Natalie Wright!!

Hey guys, so here’s the post where the spotlight isn’t on me or a post I did. I happily give the spotlight to the author Natalie Wright to give a guest post on the inspiration behind her books. So enough of my ramblings and further ado I offer this post.

“Amidst chaos and ruin, can love blossom in Emily’s Heart?”

That was the story question I had as I began writing Emily’s Heart. What a challenge! On the one hand, I had to create a believable Apocalyptic world in contemporary America. On the other hand, I had to write a love story. It’s hard for a character to feel romantic when a simple trip to the grocery store can result in death!

When developing my Apocalyptic World, sadly the real-world daily news provided plenty of inspiration. Some of my “Apocalyptic World” chapters are pulled from bits and pieces of news stories I had read. My goal was to create a world that felt so real to readers that they’d put the book down, go outside and worry that they were going to be talked by the “Dark Mob.” Good people gone bad and bad people gone worse.

Yet amidst all of the muggings, robberies, kidnapping and killings, I had to find a way for Emily’s love story to emerge. Sometimes hard times can bring people closer.

So guys I hoped you enjoyed this post of the inspiration that helped this author make a question blossom into an amazing story. Have a great day guys and I will see you later.

Review: Carnival by K.B. Nelson

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.

Stolen: A letter to My Captor

Gemma had a perfect life before going to the airport with her parents,

"A Heart-Breaking story, that captures the heart and never lets go."
“A Heart-Breaking story, that captures the heart and never lets go.”

from going to get coffee across the boarding area her life changed into being the missing girl from England. A mysterious guy named Ty, finds the girl from his dreams and steals her from her world throwing her into his world full of silence, heat and empty, barren lands. This book was a struggle, what I mean by a struggle was I mentally died, and it was a completely different and such an original book from what I’ve ever read before. It was a rollercoaster of immediate feelings of love, hurt, hatred, with so many other feelings that I currently can’t name. Lucy Christopher, a master mind of words, created the most interesting captor matching with a strong female lead. Stolen is full of pointless escape attempts, enjoyable banters and heart-breaking moments.
The two main characters in this novel have played a huge role in creating a real life heart-breaking story about a girl being kidnapped and trapped in a place with no escape from an emotionally unstable captor. Ty, who was the captor, had a rich history of being hurt, misused, and neglected. All of these experiences have made Ty a lonely, detrimental time bomb, who loves easily while getting hurt all of the time. He’s such a sweetie to Gemma, by helping her, feeding her while trying his best to please her. But while Ty is a good kind person, he made an awful mistake of taking someone against their will and a moral mistake of trying to make someone love him back. While Ty was the captor, Gemma was the victim, and was mostly an interesting character. At some point in the book I felt that she became depressed and lonely and basically lost her fight in her and succumbed into being trapped. I loved the character especially when she started seeing that Ty only loved her and started to return his love back. Maybe its messed up for me to say this but I felt these two characters were meant for each other.

“What you did to me wasn’t this brilliant thing, like you think it was. You took me away from everything- my parents, my friends, my life. You took me to the sand and the heat, the dirt and isolation. And you expected me to love you.” This quote basically explains the whole book of him hoping and praying that someday she would be okay from being in isolation away from society. He did sort of have a good plan but the one thing wrong was he took something that wasn’t for him to take. The truth was that, he was wrong to take her to Australia and to expect her to love him.

This book was the hardest and most amazing book I’ve read in a while and it made me cry and wish that everything was different for her and him. It was super hard to get through with not crying for them and an unemotional person would probably be the only one person that wouldn’t cry. I give this book a 5 star rating because this story was original, beautiful and was full of a passionate, heart-breaking romance. I totally recommend this book to everyone to read because once you do read it, you won’t be able to stop reading the book while not being able to not cry. So this book was amazing and Lucy Christopher has made me into an emotional sap over this book. So, I love you guys and wish you the best for reading any book you desire.

Crash By Nicole Williams

Image

Crash, two worlds colliding at hyper speed for two people, Jude and Lucy. Lucy from the world of cheering and dancing her problems away, and being the girl to not cause or create problems. Jude from the world of being single but doing every girl he can find, getting in to trouble, selling stuff and just being a freaking dush who is amazingly hot. They meet in the summer and something strange gets enticed and longed for and they draw to each other like opposite ends of magnets. Things happen and well Lucy just thinks it’s over. Then when she thinks they’re done over with it, at school she sees him and he sees her like love at first sight, over again. But if they are falling for each other, what if they miss and fall hard on the ground for each other. Even though opposites attract, it can attract past’s that should stay in the past, lies that should remain in the dark and just plain animosity that should be left alone. Jude and Lucy might just be the two who should stay apart or come together because lets just face it they are unsplitable when together. In the world of a biting high school teenagers who get jealous, urges and well any other thing in the world, can Lucy’s and Jude’s love continue on or will they just be heading for splits vile. I think that’s just the million dollar question everyone is waiting for an answer for.

So let’s just move along into getting to know the character that will be presented in the book. Lucy, the lovable, predictable girl who is model nice, more than easy on the eyes and has an attitude that might just be killer. I totally loved this chick but there was a problem with her. She was so predictable I mean she believed something that she should have asked about but whatever. So that was the problem with her but other than that she was AMAZING. Then comes Jude, he was probably my favorite character because he has a kind of spitting image of what I want in a boyfriend for me. He’s handsome, he’s kind and caring of the women in his life, and he has a deep past. Even though he is depicted as a “cancer cell” (meaning that he’s bad) he is really just the sweetest thing, I mean protecting Lucy throughout the whole book even if he wasn’t talking to her, doing the stupidest things for her, and righting his wrongs just for her. I mean he probably is a guy you would want to meet out in the real world. Next comes well sawyer the double teaming loser. Warning when and if you read this beware of this character because he will sound like he is the… Damn I can’t tell you but just beware of him, he’s just bad news. Then comes Taylor, I mean this chick was amazing at making things bigger than what they actually were. Like she should of been a actress, she made a big deal of Jude walking up to Lucy, then of his announcement. I mean Taylor should get an award for best dramatic friend in the world. Next her parents, which I mean the mom was the Ice queen and the other was the disoriented buttface that sat around. They were always there but when things happen, people change and these parents demonstrated that the most. Lastly is Holly, she was mentioned many times but never actually seen until the middle to the end of the book. She was the typical girl who our parents told us not to be (no offense) who had a baby by a jerky freaker and she was nice because I could feel her realness of the situation and of her character and it was just really interesting touch to the story that kept me reading.

Ploting time, ha ha get it, it’s time for us to plot. Yeah let me just get on with life before I scare you guys away. The book starts out relativily cool by starting with a summer fling. So to explain in the super fast rambly edition, Lucy meets Jude and he’s all like i’m not into the girlfriend/ dating scenario and she just like bites back and they flirt and well a day goes by and well they are finally aquainted and then stuff happens and then Jude and others are arrested taken away and he doesn’t call and then school starts and she’s like the newest hottest girl and rumors start and stop. Jude and Lucy makeout A LOTTT, they go to homecoming, they break-up and get back together and then other normal teenage stuff you’ll have to find out. Anyway’s thats my little summary of their little love story and I hope you enjoyed that ramble.

I wish I could tell you more about everything but I don’t want to give anything away from the book’s greatness. The only other things I will tell you are simple and can be said in three words. Reality of Highschool. This book taught me lessons about school and what can happen if you just do one thing wrong. But anyways before I go all parent on you I’m going to tell you this book is full of ass-beatings, arrests, love, drama and will have you going until the last word. I give this book a 5 star rating because it made me want to read and read and read it over and over. So I suggest you guys take a gander through your bookstore’s, library’s or shelf’s because it is a must read. So Enjoy!

“I can’t believe you If I can’t hear you”- The Editors

I love this quote because like for real, what makes you think that I can believe you if I can’t even hear you. So if you want anyone to believe you then speak up loud and bold enough for anyone to hear and believe me almost everyone will want to hear you.

“I can’t believ…
