The Radium Girls The Dark Story of America's Shining Women by Kate Moore
The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women
By:Kate Moore
Non-fiction ( ARC from NetGalley)

What's it's about:
The incredible true story of the young women exposed to the “wonder” substance of radium and their brave struggle for justice...

As World War I raged across the globe, hundreds of young women toiled away at the radium-dial factories, where they painted clock faces with a mysterious new substance called radium. Assured by their bosses that the luminous material was safe, the women themselves shone brightly in the dark, covered from head to toe with the glowing dust. With such a coveted job, these “shining girls” were considered the luckiest alive—until they began to fall mysteriously ill. As the fatal poison of the radium took hold, they found themselves embroiled in one of America’s biggest scandals and a groundbreaking battle for workers’ rights.

A rich, historical narrative written in a sparkling voice, The Radium Girls is the first book that fully explores the strength of extraordinary women in the face of almost impossible circumstances and the astonishing legacy they left behind.

My thoughts:
Five stars

This book is a must read and it belongs in everybody's library, it's the type of story that'll stay with you even after you finish reading it and it's an emotional read as well.
Because from the every start of it ,it had me going on an emotional rollercoaster, there was times I just wanted to cry and just put down this book and not finish it at all, and other times I just wanted to scream , because it seemed liked the girls was never going to get the help they needed , what that company put them though was so wrong, and so against everything I believe in it ,.Not only that but this story gives you an in sight of what the girls and their families went through, how much pain they had, their deaths, the lost their families felt ,how the company tried to cover it up and convince everyone that the radium was safe , this is a story that needs to be know because even too this day it's not talked about, with that said I would love to say thinks to NetGalley for giving me the chance at reading what tuned out to be a really great book in a change for my honest opinion. Will definitely be picking up a copy when I can.

What I didn't like:
There was nothing to dislike about this book,

Infact it gave a better understanding about them and made me understand in same ways why some many people love them ,even if I'm not one of them , and that's saying something​ since I'm deadly afraid of them always have been, so if you love read about animals and natural like I do then this is a book you have to read.And add to your collection.Once again a big thinks to NetGalley for giving me a chance at reading what tuned out to be a really great book, infact I can't wait to get a copy when I can.

The Regulators by Stephen King

The Regulators 

By: Stephen King as Richard Bachman

Horror

Four stars

What is it about:

Now available for the first time in a mass market premium edition—master storyteller Stephen King presents the classic, terrifying New York Times bestseller of those caught between the surreal forces of good versus evil in a small suburban town.

“The red van rolls past…humming and glinting.…Things are happening fast now, although no one on Poplar Street realizes it yet.”

It’s a gorgeous midsummer afternoon along Poplar Street in the peaceful suburbia of Wentwort, Ohio, where life is as pleasant as you ever dreamed it could be. But that’s all about to end in blaze of gunfire and sudden violence, forever shattering the tranquility and the good times here. For the physical makeup of Poplar Street itself is now being transformed into a surreal landscape straight out of the active imagination of the innocent and vulnerable Seth Garin—an autistic boy who’s been exposed to and possessed by a horrific, otherworldly force of evil, one with sadistic and murderous intent and who is willing to use whatever means necessary to grow ever stronger

 

What I thought:

4 stars

This was my first time reading The Regulators ,while I did like it and enjoy reading it unfortunately it'll never be one of my all time favorites or a favorite one of my,it's one of those that I will every once in awhile pick up and read, unlike Desperation which is one of my all time favorites to read over and over again , it does let you know what happens after Desperation ends and you see and.meet all new characters who has to face Tak. If you ever read Desperation then you might want to check this one out.

If you read and loved or even liked the book The Red Queen ,then you need to check this out

Blood Rose Rebellion (Blood Rose Rebellion, #1) by Rosalyn Eves
Blood Rose Rebellion
By :Rosalyn Eves
About the author herself:
Rosalyn Eves grew up in the Rocky Mountains, dividing her time between reading books and bossing her siblings into performing her dramatic scripts. As an adult, the telling and reading of stories is still one of her favorite things to do. When she's not reading or writing, she enjoys spending time with her chemistry professor husband and three children, watching British period pieces, or hiking through the splendid landscape of southern Utah, where she lives. She dislikes housework on principle. Her first book, BLOOD ROSE REBELLION, comes out Spring 2017 from Knopf.

Website:http://www.rosalyneves.com/
Twitter:rosalyneves

What it's about:
The thrilling first book in a YA fantasy trilogy for fans of Red Queen. In a world where social prestige derives from a trifecta of blood, money, and magic, one girl has the ability to break the spell that holds the social order in place.

Sixteen-year-old Anna Arden is barred from society by a defect of blood. Though her family is part of the Luminate, powerful users of magic, she is Barren, unable to perform the simplest spells. Anna would do anything to belong. But her fate takes another course when, after inadvertently breaking her sister’s debutante spell—an important chance for a highborn young woman to show her prowess with magic—Anna finds herself exiled to her family’s once powerful but now crumbling native Hungary.

Her life might well be over.

In Hungary, Anna discovers that nothing is quite as it seems. Not the people around her, from her aloof cousin Noémi to the fierce and handsome Romani Gábor. Not the society she’s known all her life, for discontent with the Luminate is sweeping the land. And not her lack of magic. Isolated from the only world she cares about, Anna still can’t seem to stop herself from breaking spells.

As rebellion spreads across the region, Anna’s unique ability becomes the catalyst everyone is seeking. In the company of nobles, revolutionaries, and Romanies, Anna must choose: deny her unique power and cling to the life she’s always wanted, or embrace her ability and change that world forever.

What did I think:
My rating: 4
My Thoughts
Liked about it:
historical fantasy and magic aspect of the story
successful blend of fantasy,star crossed romance, history and magic and how the author Rosalyn Eves introduces characters who are interesting and different and brave and likable and those who are repulsive, dishonorable, underhanded, dangerous, and untrustworthy as well as pulls you into the story and brings it to life.

Disliked:
How Anna couldn't see and understand that even without magic she already had people who loved her for her self , it takes her along while to figure that out.

Would have like more on:
Luminate's​ as well as the Barrens​ , the markings they have , the hole magic system in general,

With that side I would love to think Blogging For Books for send me a copy of Blood Rose Rebellion in a change for my honest opinion which this is .

OMG this book is amazing

I See You by Clare Mackintosh
You do the same thing every day.

You know exactly where you're going.

You're not alone.

When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it's there. There's no explanation: just a website, a grainy image and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it's just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.

Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make . . .

What did I think:
5 stars
This book is amazing it's every thing you want in a thriller, it's reach's out and grabs you and pulls you into the story and won't let go, it's well written, suspenseful , and the plot is like no there , can't wait to read more by this author.

 

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus ( if you like the movie The Breakfast Club,then this might be for you)

 

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.

Pay close attention and you might solve this.
On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.
Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.
Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.
Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.

Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them

My thoughts:
4.5
First off if you like the movie The Breakfast Club then you might like this , because in some ways it kind of does remind the reader alittle bit of that movie, which is why I requested it from NetGalley in the first place​ and I want to see how much was like the movie. And while there is a little reminder it's total different . The Breakfast Club:
1: athlete
2:beauty/ princess
3:criminal
4:brain
5:outcast
Now for the differences and the reminders
Reminders
1:And just like the movie they end up in detention and of course the teacher that's o watch over the detention hall leaves the room
Differences
The brainy
Outcast
LQTB character

The same:
Reble/ criminal
beauty/ princess
athlete
Plus this story has a lot of twist and turns and secrets that have a way of coming out, with that said I would like to say thinks to NetGalley for giving me the chance at reading this in change for my honest opinion, on that note to see and find out what the secrets are, as well as who is the LQTB character , who's dating who and what happened to Simon and what he was going to tell everyone at school ,well you're​going to have to read this for yourself.

Killing Kate by Alex Lake ( a must read)

 

Review Killing Kate by Alex Lake
serial killer is stalking your home town.

He has a type: all his victims look the same.

And they all look like you.

Kate returns from a post break-up holiday with her girlfriends to news of a serial killer in her home town – and his victims all look like her.

It could, of course, be a simple coincidence.

Or maybe not.

She becomes convinced she is being watched, followed even. Is she next? And could her mild-mannered ex-boyfriend really be a deranged murderer?

Or is the truth something far more sinister?

What did I think:
5 stars
This book was amazing, once I started reading I couldn't put it down, I had to know what was going to happen next, and who the killer was and why was he picking girls that looked like Kate, of course I had to re start it but that because I lost my place and couldn't remember where I was , but just look before I was pulled into the story, it does touch on abuse , but it doesn't take any thing away from the story. I do have to say that it does play with your mind a little bit .So if your looking for a good thriller then this might be what your looking for.

Loved it

 

 

 

 


The Girl Who Was Taken by Charlie Donlea
Description
Charlie Donlea, one of the most original new voices in suspense, returns with a haunting novel, laden with twists and high tension, about two abducted girls—one who returns, one who doesn’t—and the forensics expert searching for answers.

Nicole Cutty and Megan McDonald are both high school seniors in the small town of Emerson Bay, North Carolina. When they disappear from a beach party one warm summer night, police launch a massive search. No clues are found, and hope is almost lost until Megan miraculously surfaces after escaping from a bunker deep in the woods.

A year later, the bestselling account of her ordeal has turned Megan from local hero to national celebrity. It’s a triumphant, inspiring story, except for one inconvenient detail: Nicole is still missing. Nicole’s older sister Livia, a fellow in forensic pathology, expects that one day soon Nicole’s body will be found, and it will be up to someone like Livia to analyze the evidence and finally determine her sister’s fate. Instead, the first clue to Nicole’s disappearance comes from another body that shows up in Livia’s morgue—that of a young man connected to Nicole’s past. Livia reaches out to Megan for help, hoping to learn more about the night the two were taken. Other girls have gone missing too, and Livia is increasingly certain the cases are connected.

But Megan knows more than she revealed in her blockbuster book. Flashes of memory are coming together, pointing to something darker and more monstrous than her chilling memoir describes. And the deeper she and Livia dig, the more they realize that sometimes true terror lies in finding exactly what you’ve been looking for.

Five Stars
What did I think:
OMG this book was what I needed right now, once I started to read it ,I just couldn't stop ,it had me hooked and before I knew it pulled into the story, it's the type of thriller that plays with your mind, and keeps you guessing from the very start to the very end, ok so it does end on a cliffhanger,but it's a still a five star read,so if you love thrillers that are kind of dark, plays with your mind, keeps you guessing , and has a lot of dark secrets and twist and turns from the very beginning then this one is for you,with that said I want say thinks to NetGalley for giving me the chance at reading this and finding a new author to read, in change for my honest opinion ,and I can't wait to pick up an actual copy of this book and to see what happens next .
