Naruto 591: Risk

Well, Naruto 591 was pretty... oh, forget it!

First of all, why did Itachi have to die??? AGAIN??? That look on Sasuke's face was pretty sad! Aw! Someone hug him already! Now, all we SasuSaku fans have to hope for is that he realizes that he'd always loved  a certain pink-haired teammate and is willing to have Uchiha brats - I meant 'babies - with her! Lol!

I would have loved a little more action between Dan and Tsunade. But that kiss-on-the-forehead was pretty sweet too.

That chapter just left me wanting MORE!!!


Book Review: The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
 Read from June 18 to 24, 2012
"Seventeen year-old Veronica “Ronnie” Miller’s life was turned upside-down when her parents divorced and her father moved from New York City to Wilmington, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains angry and alienated from her parents, especially her father… until her mother decides it would be in everyone’s best interest if she spent the summer in Wilmington with him. Ronnie’s father, a former concert pianist and teacher, is living a quiet life in the beach town, immersed in creating a work of art that will become the centerpiece of a local church. 
The tale that unfolds is an unforgettable story about love in its myriad forms – first love, the love between parents and children – that demonstrates, as only a Nicholas Sparks novel can, the many ways that deeply felt relationships can break our hearts… and heal them."
This novel was outright beautiful! Not awesome, not epic. Just beautiful.

What I found the most interesting was the relationship between Ronnie and Will. It was so simple. A good change after all those start-crossed romances. It was pure simplicity, pure realism, and pure sweetness.

I would simply recommend this to all those YA readers. Reading a simple love story after all those YA novels can be very good to you!

Title: Color Theory
Author: BlueGreenApples
Rating: T
Genre: Adventure/Romance
Fandom: Naruto
Characters: Sasuke U. & Sakura H.
Summary: Canon. SasuSaku. Red was the color of passion, womanhood. Pink was the shade of little girls and delicate things. Next to Karin, Sakura felt like a washed-out imitation.

I love this fic! It's still incomplete, but, so far, I love the chemistry between Sasuke & Sakura! People, you have got to read this!

Book Review: Switched (Trylle Trilogy #1) by Amanda Hocking

Switched (Trylle Trilogy #1) by Amanda Hocking
Read from June 14 to 15, 2012

          "What if your entire world was built on a lie?
Wendy Everly knew she was different the day her mother tried to kill her and accused her of having been switched at birth. Although certain she’s not the monster her mother claims she is – she does feel that she doesn't quite fit in...
She’s bored and frustrated by her small town life – and then there’s the secret that she can’t tell anyone. Her mysterious ability – she can influence people’s decisions, without knowing how, or why...
When the intense and darkly handsome newcomer Finn suddenly turns up at her bedroom window one night – her world is turned upside down. He holds the key to her past, the answers to her strange powers and is the doorway to a place she never imagined could exist. Förening, the home of the Trylle.
Finally everything makes sense. Among the Trylle, Wendy is not just different, but special. But what marks her out as chosen for greatness in this world also places her in grave danger. With everything around her changing, Finn is the only person she can trust. But dark forces are conspiring – not only to separate them, but to see the downfall everything that Wendy cares about.
The fate of Förening rests in Wendy’s hands, and the decisions she and Finn make could change all their lives forever..."

All I can say is 'Oh, my God!' This book was amazing! Right now, it's one of my favourites!

At first, I wasn't that into it but then it started getting epic as the plot thickened. I love Finn! He's the perfect guy for Wendy! I love his relationship with Wendy. Also, Wendy's stubbornness makes me like her even more! I feel sorry for her though; what with Elora and ruling Trylle stuff. Another winning character is Tove. I had no interest in him until he confronted Wendy about her powers and the fact that Finn trusts him is an added bonus! So my favourite 3 characters: Wendy, Finn, and Tove!

What you really need to know is that if you haven't read Switched already, you are no better than a caveman. Weird stuff I say, huh? Lol!

Book Review: Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick
Read from June 03 to 04, 2012
"For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen—and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life."

This book was totally spellbinding! I loved the characters, the plot, the dialogue, everything! By far, my favorite character is Patch - obviously! I love the action in this too. It's heart-pounding and makes me wanna start running too. What shook me most was nightmarish guys in ski masks! That frightened me all the way.

And I have no idea why people criticize this series! It's absolutely enthralling and makes me wanna read more! Personally, I'm glad there's a fourth book!

Just so you know, this a must-read for all YA fans!
