Even a book can be dangerous in the wrong hands, and when that happens, you blame the hands, but you also read the book.

Synopsis

Secrets... Lies... Destruction...

You can't shatter a heart if it's already broken.

She's beautiful and smart, but behind every forced smile, Blue Hamilton died a little more inside. After suffering years of abuse by the one she loved, Blue packed her bags and left town, vowing to never return.

Three years later, everything started falling into place when Blue's world is suddenly flipped upside down, leaving her one of two options- either she sells her soul to the devil, or runs into the arms of the forbidden, praying to make it out alive.

His striking personality and toned, muscular body may have gotten him anything he wanted, but Stone Walker has never been able to let his walls down and live, until Blue walks through the door.

Promising to keep her safe from the destruction of her past, Stone does everything in his power to live up to his word, no matter the cost.

Lies are exposed, secrets are revealed, and when the truth finally comes to surface, two innocent lives are forced through a whirlwind of suffering and pain.

What happens when Blue finds out the truth behind Stone's corrupted past? Can she forgive him and move on once the damage is done? Or will she walk away for good, refusing to look back?

Follow this compelling journey of love, loss and survival. If everyone makes it out alive, it will be a miracle.

Excerpt

The picture of life is black and white, plain and simple. People were either happy or sad, angry or laughing, loved or hated. There wasn’t an in-between. Some might have thought I lived a decent life. I put on a pleasurable front; laughing a lot, smiling often. Trying my damnedest to make everyone happy. I forced myself into the world, yearning for companionship, seeking immeasurable love. I’d fix myself up, striving for acceptance, determined to have a good time. However life behind the tainted walls of my destructive shadow was a complete different story. No one knew the real me. The true Blue Hamilton. I was a broken shell in the big blue sea just floating by. Tormented. Wrecked. Anguished. My heart had been shattered into a million pieces. Untraceable. My soul was damaged beyond repair. Undefinable. And the very thing others called life had been utterly wrecked. Fear ate at me like a starved monster, pulling me apart piece by piece. It sucked the life out of me, draining every ounce of hope imaginable. There was nowhere to run, nowhere to turn. No one understood my sufferings and pain. Had someone stood by my side through all the turmoil and destruction, things might have turned out differently. I highly doubted it, though. Because if I knew anything about myself; I was destined to suffer. It was inevitable. I just wanted be loved, to feel loved, but I guess that was too much to ask for. I didn’t seek a distasteful pity party, or want others feel sorry for me. That’s why I kept my past to myself. The last thing I needed was to be judged off things I’d been through, things that wrecked me completely. Only God knew the ways I’d suffered, the ways I’d lost, and even He became questionable at times. Did I believe there was an eternity? A Heaven and hell? Of course. I knew there had to be something more than what I had been living, something worth fighting for. I just couldn’t figure out exactly what. Faithfully I prayed my steps would be ordered by the Lord. I asked God to direct me, to guide me and help me, but something always got in the way every time I saw a little ounce of light. I gave everything I had, everything in me to show those close to me that I cared. But just like everyone else in this crooked world, I had to learn the hard way; you can’t make someone love you, no matter what you do. After reflecting on all I had been forced through, and how the situations dragged me down, somewhere along the line I gave up. I wasn’t sure if it really mattered, anyway. People like me didn’t deserve happiness. If anything, we woke every morning and walked the thin, dotted line, praying to make it through the day. That was all I strived for…. Survival.

Review The sky is everywhere by Jandy Nelson

It's such a collosal effort not to be haunted by what's lost, but to be enchanted by what was.
The story is pretty much centered around a 17 year old, Corlene, and the book is basically about how she's dealing with her sister's death, trying to move on. There are also two boys in this story, Toby, Lenny sister's boyfriend, and Joe who's a new boy in town.
This book's got really poetic language and it is very well written. I was surprised by how good it is and how wonderful the characters are shaped and it made them so believeble. It was like I was right there in the action of the book, so clear and so unique. What I really loved about the main character, Lenny, was that she's not that kind of perfect character that you meet in almost all of the books nowadays. She was very flowed, maybe too much and it almost made me hate her. She's not very likeable but it was good to be in such characters mind for a change. She doesn't really seem to care about others. This is a quote directly from the novel, she was havoing an argument with her grandmother and she said:
Grandmother:You act like you're the only one in tis house who's lost somebody. You haven't asked me once how I'm doing. Did it ever accured to you that I might need to talk?
 I did feel the book a little bit unreal sometimes because if I were her and my sister would've died, I guess my main concern wouldn't be the new boy in town. Perhaps I would try to make peace with myself and to talk with my family, make sure we have each other to get through this.
The only character that I really felt sad for throughout the book definately was Lenny sister's boyfriend because he really seemed to miss her and to be the only one who still thinks that much and deep about her. He just couldn't get over it, he couldn't forget her and that, at least for me, seemed like an act of true love.
I feel like it looks like I've been negative with this book, but don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it so much. Like any other book, it has flaws but not quite much and it almost went without me even seeing it. Over all, I loved this book, I did give it a 4 out of 5 stars and I hope you are willing to read it too because if you're not going to read it, you're kind of missing out on a great story. The ending wasn't too cheesy and I feel like it tighted everything up beautifully. Only if the author would've focused on the tragedy itslef, I would have gave it a 5 stars +.
He's so alive. He makes me feel like I could take a bite out of the whole world.
Stay smilin',
A.

Synopsis

Matisse Evans is determined to make her sophomore year of college successful after failing out of a prestigious art school and spending a horribly boring gap year at home. Despite her focus, time isn't on her side as she struggles to hold down three jobs so she can afford her first apartment while juggling course work. In the chaos of it all, Beau Grady moves in and shakes up her world. A college dropout and tattooed bad boy, the rumors about Beau mean one thing for Matisse—trouble. Paralyzed by the fear that she's missing out on life, Matisse discovers plans may unravel, but what rises in their wake can be worth the uncertainty. After spending the summer couch surfing, Beau Grady moves into an empty room at his ex-girlfriend’s Portland bungalow, skipping his senior year of college to spend his days working at a Vietnamese food cart instead. Once a star hockey player and gifted student, he’s put his life on hold after receiving a life-altering diagnosis, complacent to live in the moment. Hiding behind false rumors and bad habits, Beau falls for Matisse, letting her believe the worst until their relationship blooms into something they both can’t ignore. Falling for her means having to face a future he’d rather forget, but loving her just might be worth it.

Excerpt

“I didn’t mean what I said the other night.” Mati spins around and tosses my T-shirt at my face. “And I guess I’m sorry for that.” She glances over my shoulder, biting her bottom lip as I snap the folded T-shirt against my shoulder. I laugh in spite myself. I’m a fucking wreck, but something about me intimidates her. I can’t figure her out. I stretch, pain radiating throughout my body as I do. I slip the shirt over my head and pull my shit together. “It’s whatever,” I say with a shrug. I try to play it off, grabbing the ratchet from her hand. Truth is, she was right, even if I didn’t want to hear it. Mati pads over to the tool bench I built with Noah. She pushes herself up to sit on it and places the giant sombrero from our party last weekend on her head. It swallows her up. It’s not that Mati is small—she’s tall and willowy—it’s just that I’ve always liked everything opposite before now. And I hate that it takes her wearing a stupid costume prop for me to figure that out. “I feel like I need a margarita with this on.” Mati straightens it, adjusting the strings underneath her chin. “Maybe a piñata, too.” “Straight tequila would be preferable.” She swings her legs back and forth, humming along to the Black Keys. It’s a good thing she’s a painter; singing isn’t a strength of hers. But it’s cute and I hate myself for thinking so. “How are classes?” I don’t really care about the answer. I just want to hear her talk. “Oh, they’re fine, I think.” “You don’t know?” She stops swinging her feet. “Why do you care?” “Making conversation, Mati.” I walk around to the bench. “Since we’re talking to each other again.” A smile spreads across her lips, those red lips that I want to kiss. “Why are you upset?” she asks quietly. I swat my hand out and tip the sombrero over her eyes. “I’m fine.” It’s easier to lie when I don’t have to look her in the face. She straightens the hat. “Classes so far are a lot like my classes freshman year two years ago.” I skip the obvious question. Too many details and this impossible distance I’m trying to keep between us is going to be obliterated. “How’s that?” “Do you remember? It’s been so long since you went to class.” Her teasing washes away the panic seizing me again. “I wasn’t always a dropout. I remember fine.” “Then you remember they’re pointless.” Her voice grows sad. “What was your major, Beau?” I help her remove the massive sombrero instead of answering. I need exactly eight credits before I can graduate and start my masters for the accelerated program. I know my major—had a plan, even, had a purpose—but it’s not something I want to get into right now. It’s a far stretch ever imagining I could be a counselor responsible for guiding troubled teens on a hike when I can’t hold a damn wrench. She taps her index finger over the tip of my nose. “Always Mr. Mysterious.” I wonder if Mati has been drinking tequila because this isn’t like her. Usually her contempt toward me is blatant, not that I mind this Mati. This is who I was hoping the real Mati would be like if she ever paused for a minute from bowling over everything in her path. And that freaks me the fuck out—that today she’s quiet. “Forestry sciences. I wanted to be a wilderness education counselor.” I move the hat off to the side and help her down, my hand curling over her hip. “What’s your major again? Being a pain in my ass?” She rests her hand against my shoulder, not stepping away. “Charming as ever, too,” she whispers. I tell my hand to let go, but I only hold on tighter because she sways closer and bumps against me, lost studying my face. I want to stay here, feel this, watch her watching me forever. “What would you do if I kissed you right now?” Her eyes widen and shift focus to my mouth. They trace my lips until I have to fight back a groan. Mati gives the perfect fuck-me eyes. “It doesn’t matter—” She pauses, her fingers pressing hard into my shoulder. “—because we both know you won’t.” I slide my hand to the small of her back. My palm fits against the gentle curve there. “Mati?” “I don’t have time for this.” Her words tumble out in an awkward rush. “I don’t want complications.” My other hand slips up to rest against her stomach, cinching the fabric of her shirt in my fist. She slams her eyes shut at my touch, her breath escaping in staccato beats, mirroring my own. The garage smells like damp earth and oil, but I swear we’re standing out in the dark, lost in the woods under the endless cover of stars. Even though she’s right, even though I am a complication, I can’t shake the feeling in my gut that we’d be a good one. “You’re wrong,” I whisper. Her eyes pop open. “You’re exactly the type of girl who wants complications.” I rest my forehead against hers, her sweet coffee breath washing over my mouth. “And you have no clue what I want.”

„Zguduitoare. […] Fascinantă. […] Cartea lui Hillenbrand este atât de cinematografică, iar evenimentele pe care le descrie atât de incredibile, încât nu îndrăzneşti să-ţi dezlipeşti ochii de pe pagină.”– PEOPLE

În copilărie, Louis Zamperini a fost un delincvent incorigibil. În adolescenţă, el şi-a orientat spiritul rebel spre atletism, descoperindu-şi un talent uimitor, care l-a dus la Jocurile Olimpice de la Berlin. După începerea celui de-Al Doilea Război Mondial, sportivul a devenit aviator. În luna mai a anului 1943, bombardierul său s-a prăbuşit în Oceanul Pacific şi Zamperini a supravieţuit pe o barcă de salvare vreme de 47 de zile. A urmat experienţa de coşmar a lagărelor japoneze pentru prizonieri de război. La limita rezistenţei, Zamperini a răspuns disperării cu ingeniozitate, suferinţelor cu speranţă, brutalităţilor cu revoltă. Soarta lui, triumfătoare şi tragică deopotrivă, avea să atârne de firul tot mai subţire al voinţei sale.

De neînvins este o mărturie de neuitat a rezistenţei minţii, corpului şi spiritului uman, adusă strălucitor la viaţă de Laura Hillenbrand.
