I Am Carina And I Speak For The Books!

I am Carina, and I speak for the books! I read books because I love to and I write reviews because I need to place my thoughts in "paper". My reviews are honest. Usually not mean, but I can't make promises. Even when I don't like a book, I try to be as nice as possible. And when I love a book, I'm not going to lie, there might be some Fan Girling and Gushing.

This Same Earth (Volume 2)

Flat-Out Love - Jessica Park ***EDIT 06/20/12***Tainted. My experince with this book has been completely and utterly tainted by the author's behavior towards the negative reviewers.I can't... I just can't.Can you believe it if I told you I almost feel like crying for taking away my rating of this book? For taking it out of my Favorites shelf? No, you probably won't. I won't put anyone off from reading this book in the future. But I will not recommend it either. Not ever again.***Original Review***I guess I can't say/gush anything that hasn't been said about this book before. And I have to agree with my GR friends on how amazingly refreshing this book is.The story was very interesting and it kept me engaged from the begining. The characters are well thought out and I love the developing process they have through out the book.I specially love Matt(but really, who doesn't?). He might have just jumped to be a top contender for my Geeky top guy, next to Seth. They would probably engage in this battle over emails! lolThe complications and mistery were there, but not THERE, you know? It was written in a way that you know something big and ugly is coming, but it doesn't stop you from enjoying the book. And for some reason I had the feeling that Finn was dead from the begining and Matt was the one impersonating him. I kept telling my self that it would be waaaay to complicated and I was just halucinating it, but turns out my gut was right.(Sorry gut! I promise to listen to you more often =D).Do I wish we would have had a little more from the couple in the end? Absolutely. But it doesn't bug me enough to rate the book down.So in conclusion; an outstanding light, refreshing read. If you're looking to read something that has the exact balance of Romance, Struggles, Family Dysfunctions, Fun and Growth, then this is the book for you.
