This Lullaby

About The Book:
Written by Sarah Dessen Published Year 2002
Remy always knows the perfect time to give a boyfriend "The Speech" telling him it's over-after the initial romantic whirl, but before the reality of an actual relationship hits. Her friends tease that her boyfriend tally is nearing the triple digit mark, but she's a girl who knows just how to avoid any messy emotional entanglement. After all, she's had the example of her five-times-married mother to show her what not to do.
So what, then, is it about Dexter that makes it so hard for her to follow her own rules? He's everything she hates: messy, disorganized, much too vulnerable, impulsive, and worst of all, a musician like her father: the father Remy never knew, the father who wrote a famous song for her, the father who disappeared from her life.

There's something about Sarah Dessen's books that keep me coming back for more. This one I finished while standing in a bus on my way to work, now that counts for something. Remy is kind of hard to like as a character, she seems mean and selfish sometimes but I love the idea that somehow love can change everything and that you can overlook a persons negative side because of it. I think Dexter is adorable and don't you just wish the song -- This Lullaby, does exist?

About The Book:
Written by Ally Carter Series Gallagher Girls Published Year 2006
The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women is a fairly typical all-girls schoolthat is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE, the latest in chemical warfare in science; and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes computer class. So in truth, Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniusesbut its really a school for spies. Cammie Morgan is a second generation Gallagher Girl, and by her sophomore year shes already fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways (three of which involve a piece of uncooked spaghetti). But the one thing the Gallagher Academy hasnt prepared her for is what to do when she falls for an ordinary boy who thinks shes an ordinary girl. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, and track him through a mall without his ever being the wiser, but can she have a regular relationship with a regular boy who can never know the truth about her? Cammie may be an elite spy in training, but in her sophomore year, shes beginning her most dangerous missionshes falling in love.

I like it's sillines, books for me serves as an entertainment as much as other people watch trash in the television... this is my trash-- in paper. That might not come out very well, anyway consider it as a metaphor. The plot is highly unlikely and downright ridiculous at times, I mean the adults in the story doesn't really come off as clever if a teenager can get past them. It would be popular for tweens (and for the young of heart)-- they'll get romance, adventure, mystery and to wrap it up there's even a moral lesson in it like how you should not deceive others on thinking differently of who you really are.


About The Book:
Written by Lisa McMann Series Dream Catcher Published Year 2008
Not all dreams are sweet.
For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie's seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.
She can't tell anybody about what she does -- they'd never believe her, or worse, they'd think she's a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn't want and can't control.
Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She is a participant.

Supernatural themed books are all over the place now, atleast this one does not have vampires, fairies or zombies. At first it wasn't doing anything for me maybe because I was expecting too much from it but it started to pick-up at the later parts. I mostly like it because of the mystery part, where Janie starts to discover how her 'gift' works. It has a feel of being unpolished, I don't know if that's poor writing but the plot was surely creative and I loved the ending. I like to finish a book on a pleasant note.
