Review: Starters by Lissa Price

I sat shotgun. I wondered if that was where the expression cam from. Or maybe they meant leaning out the window and shooting. In any event, I was sitting there holding the gun on the senator and Black was in the backseat right behind him. ~p. 247 

This book has so much action in it you will have a hard time putting it down. Every moment of this book is what is going to happen next, how will she get out of this? Its a page-turner and a heart racing good read. 

by Lissa Price 


Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie. Callie's only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man. 

He hires teens to rent their bodies to Endersseniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie's head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, and going out with a senator's grandson. It feels almost like a fairy tale, until Callie discovers that her renter intends to do more than partyand that Prime Destinations' plans are more evil than Callie could ever have imagined.

In this futuristic world that Lissa has created, a biochemical Spore War has wiped out the 20-60 year olds. All that are left are Starters (the youth of the nation) and the Enders (the elder generations, which can live to be well over 200 thanks to expanding technology.) There are two kinds of Starters, those claimed and those unclaimed. Callie is unclaimed. Both of her parents were killed off (or were they??? Gha I need to know!!) in the war and she is left to take care of her younger brother, Tyler, who is very sick. And living on the streets isnt helping. With the help of Michael, her childhood friend, Calli and Tyler try to make the most of their life. But all Callie wants to do it provide a warm bed for Tyler. But as an unclaimed minor, who cant work, its proven to be quite difficult. 

Until she hears of a company that is willing to pay a lot of money for their clients. Prime Destination is a young company that offers Enders the chance to be young again, to relive the days of their youth, by renting out Starters bodies. With a simple chip inserted into your brain, you form a connection that allows you to control your Starter. 

Unsure of the risk, but desperate for money and to have a better life for her brother, Callie signs up. But she gets more than she bargained for when her Ender has a plan to take down Prime, and plans to use Callie as her assassin. 

Callie doesnt want to get involved with Helenas (her Ender renter) plans to take out the head of Prime. Until she discovers that Prime has alterative motives, turning renting into buying. 
I had to shoot, but I didnt want to. I imagined the bullet piercing flesh, ripping it apart, the skin curling back in flowerpetal shapes as blood spurted like a fountain, flooding the room. My finger quivered, and pulled. It was like I was trying to let go, let the trigger come back to position, but of course that didnt work, so I shot him. I guess I did want to. The gun went off with a high, tinny pop. At the same time, or maybe sooner, I'm not sure, Blake went flying over to his grandfather, pushing him hard. ~p. 246 
This was such an original story and something that you can think might truly happen!! Which is scary!!! I really enjoyed this book. I really loved that it focused on two age groups that arent in the spotlight on very often, the elderly and the youth! I have a soft spot for the elderly population and I know all to well how they love to be young again. I think this population sometimes gets forgotten because of their age. But you have to remember that they were once teenagers, and were crazy and just because you get older doesnt mean that changes. 

Even though this book is pure sci-fi and dystopian, its a romance at heart. Of course there are cute boys in it (yes I made it plural, there is indeed a love triangle in there, but its still in the infant stages of development, and I hope that in Enders I grows into a hormone riddle teenager!!!) and this is a wonderful chance for Callie to discover all about the love that the world has to offer! But there is also an undying loving relationship between Callie and her brother. And that is where this book sparkles (aside from the SUPER shiny cover!) 

My brain, no less. Probably my favorite body part. No one ever complained about a fat brain. No one ever accused their brain of being too short or too tall, too wide or too narrow. Or ugly. It either worked of it didnt, and mine worked just fine. I prayed it still would after the surgery. ~pg 39 
Callie is willing to lay down her life for her brother and their relationship is just specular! It warms your heart and is the driving force behind my need to make sure Callie lives! 
He had the face of a gloating astronaut who has lost his tether and had only one chance to grab a lifeline or forever drift away into endless black. I knew that feeling, the sense of panic that stretched time, turning seconds into years, and the deep pain that came from being hurt by not one person but many, a gang of bullies that expanded into a neighborhood and then into a community, until you questioned the whole world. And your last thought, as you stretch your arm until your fingers are inches from that lifeline, is how if you survive, youll find a way to help fix what was broken, so you can say that yes, you want to be part of the world again. ~p. 335 
Starters is a highly addictive, and tantalizing unique take on a dystopian world that leaves your heart racing and your fingers itching to turn the pages. Starters plays the game, Just one more chapter so damn well you will loose sleep wondering how will Callie get out of the craziness that keeps happening to her. Starters is such a fast pace action packed book, it will leave your head spinning and your heart aching! And as always, leave you wanting more more more!!!!

by Bethany Griffin

Elliott grabs me, pulls me closer, and slides my hand under the back of his shirt. His skin is warm, and even as I'm frantically pulling my hand away, my fingers find raised skin. Scars. I'm glad you asked. He says in his most bored and aristocratic voice. I slipped once and called him by his former name. He had me whipped. His court considered it fine entertainment. His voice remains conversational. My fingers feel unnaturally warm where they touched his skin.  ~PP. 102-103
He hands me one of his shirts, a red one. It is soft when I touch it to my face. you cant possibly sleep in that dress. Wear this, think of me. The flirty tone is back. He frowns. I want you to do one thing for me. Think of a story that you can tell me about your brother. Not about you and your guilt, but a story that celebrates Finn. ~p. 206
Thank you for keeping her save, Elliott tells Will. His voice sounds sincere but I dont trust sincerity from him.I will always keep her safe, Will says, raising his eyebrows. ~p. 226
AHHHHHH so I had a hard time this week because I'm pretty sure I want to retype the whole book up here so you can all read it!!!! I mean seriously!!!! Its such a damn good books!!! So I have only given you just a taste of what these two boys are like they are both so scrumptious!!!! Its so hard to choose either boy!!! They both have such amazing sexy moments but I do have to say, my heart is leaning towards Will. Oh swoon!!!! Maybe I will put more teasers in my review when I post it up!!! So I hope you enjoy it!!! This book is fabulous!!!!

Will you tease me?

So I hope you like my IMM this week!!!

And here is my hunger games review/fangirl squeal moment!!! 

So my entire social network has exploded with nothing but how amazing the Hunger games is!!!! And I have to say, they are right!!! You guys this movie took my breath away, gave me goose bumps and had me crying all the way. I felt like I was there!!! There were small details missing that made me sad but the love between Peeta and Katniss so made up for it!!! I mean gah!!! I'm lucky to be able to form words right now. 

For being a book adaption movie they did a damn good job!!!! I did see it in IMAX (the first time) and I have to say that brought my experience to a whole new level. The way it was shot took some getting use to. It was the shaky, in and out of focus, first person shooting and after about 10 mins I was totally use to it. And I have to say it really made you feel like you were Katniss!!! You were right there in and out of focus, muffled hearing, and just everything!!! The only thing I was missing was rolling around in the dirt and swimming in the lake! 

And another amazing thing that this did was it made me feel for the other Tributes!!! I seriously felt for Cato in the end!!! As crazy scary as he was, I still felt bad! And Clove was CRAZY!!!! HOLY HELL!!! She was just so scary!!!! 

I loved it and need to see it again!!! I'ts one of the best book adaptation around and if you loved the books, you will love the movie! And damn, Snow is an excellent villain! 

I mean everything!!! The Reaping tore me to pieces! I had goose bumps and tears and everything!!! It was so raw and so emotional I just felt it zap my heart! And then Rue, oh what can be said about Rue.  NOTHING!!!! Because I was to busy sobbing like an darn pussy!!!!

One thing I love about movies is the movie score and the music that goes with it, and for this one, it was on the quite side. But you were able to hear the gravel crunch and time almost stood still!!! It was so incredible!!! All the actors served these characters well and did an amazing job of bringing them to life and giving the emotion and personality that is found between the lines. 

Elizabeth Banks made me fall head over shinny heals for Effie!!!! She really brought sparking life to her and damn! Her manners enthusiasm was fantastic!! And OMG Chinna!!!! Make me die!!! He was my favorite character in the books; there was just something about his simple love for Katniss makes me die!!! Their moment before she went up broke my heart!!! I'm dying to see Catching Fire and see more of him!!! 

In the book the cave scene in the book I just didnt feel it. But oh damn!! Peeta sure did shine in the movie. I mean oh my holy moly!!! The romance really shined through and everything between him and Katniss  was so palpable! That made me 100% Team Peeta!!

Now some of the things that were left out of the book I'm ok with and here is why. I read before hand about some things that were being left out and why (Avox, the change of the pin, the other stylists). And it was because they didnt have time in the movie to develop their characters. And that is a good enough reason for me. Yea it sucks, but we can never have every bit of a book into a movie. Not my biggest pet peeve was that her nails werent painted with fire. Dont ask me why that bothers me, but when reading that really stuck with me. And I was hopping to get to see that. 

I have been reading that a lot of people think there was a lack of explanation for a lot of the key moments and I have to say that yes there were. But they tried their best. This book is filled with a lot of internal moments with just Katniss and that can be hard to just throw in a movie. I mean you can just sit there and have Cesar or Snow just explain everything like a monologue. I mean these things are so minor that I dont even care! Its a great movie and so just wonderful!!! 

Go and see it everyone!! You wont be disappointed!!! 

Actors/Actresses: 5/5
Everyone was beyond what I imagined. Clove and Cato just blew me away!!! I was so scared of those two! They were incredible!!! Even Katniss and Peeta were so amazing!!!! 

World-building: 5/5
OUTSTANDING!!! The Capitol was crazy and ignorant which was amazing! 

Stuck to the book: 4/5
We cant always get everything we want, but the changes that were made werent to bad. And they made it up by giving us the extra stuff with Snow and others that we dont get form the book which I love! 

Overall 4.95/5
PS: So I just got back from seeing it for the second time (my boyfriend said he wanted to see it and like I was going to say NO!) And I have to say that seeing it again was just as amazing! The first time around, its such a shock to be able to be watching it you are just in awe! I loved it just as much, I cried just as much and my non-book reading boyfriend loved it also!!!!

Tell me about your weekend!! Did you see Hunger Games? What did you think? What was in your mailbox this week??

Seventeen-year old Sarahs life is turned upside down when her single mom is sent to jail. Shes forced to move, leaving behind everything shes ever known, including her best friend Sydney. Lost and bitter in a new school, her one goal is to save money and move back home. Then she meets Angel Moreno. 

Enigmatic but gorgeous, Angel is almost too good to be true. Except for one thing, his archaic belief that guys and girls can never be just friends. The problem? Sarahs best friend Sydney is not a girl. 

With their unexpected romance intensifying to places neither ever experienced, how long can Sarah keep Angel in the dark about the guy waiting for her back home?

Can someone help me pick up my jaw off the floor??? 

After one heartache too many, Valerie Zuniga vows to never let Alex Moreno hurt her again. A year later, she is forced to reunite with him at a party where one unexpected sizzling kiss tells her shes far from over him. No way will she allow herself to get sucked back into that torment. Shell resist him even if that means using the one thing thatll stop Alex dead in his tracks: another man. 

Alex is coming off one of the worst years of his life. He spent so much time wallowing in self-pity, he never realized how much hed missed Valerie. That is, until that kiss. Now, hes determined to get her back one way or another, and no other man will stand in his way. Especially after discovering that Valerie may be in danger, a danger he blames himself for.
You know I love them all in color now!!! 

Her entire life Sofia Moreno has dealt with her overprotective brothers. With three overbearing brothers always lurking, no boy would dare reach out to her. Luckily for Sofia the one boy she's got her heart set on has always been within reach: her brothers best friend Eric. Even though his loyalty to her brothers runs deep, Sofia knows there is only so much he can do before giving in to her. 

Two years older than her, Eric Diego has always known there would be hell to pay if he messed with his best friend's kid sister Sofia. Through the years he watches as she blooms into a beautiful young lady right before his eyes. With teenage hormones raging and Sofia more than willing, Eric agrees to the unthinkable. A forbidden secret romance. Feeling emotions and a feverish passion that's new to them both,neither is ready for how quickly their romance spins out of control.

I want to lick that stubble! 

Prim and proper middle school teacher Isabel Montenegro always runs the opposite direction from men like Ramon Romero. A foul-mouthed, uneducated, loose cannon has no place in her careful plans.

Shes unwilling to walk awayeven when her instincts are screaming at her to run. 

Romero has no idea what he's getting himself into when he first kisses Isabel. Shocked at the passion she invokes in him, he believes he can keep his usual short fuse under wraps. Falling fast and hard for someone so flawlessly sweet only makes him more aware that hes far from perfect. If she is ever witness to his biggest imperfection, hes sure shell bail. But when her meddling sister does the worst thing imaginablebring other men between him and his Izzythat fuse is lit and all bets are off. 

Can two people who are worlds apart teach each other how to love, or will the reality of their differences drive them apart?

mmmm yes!!! 

Always in control, the meticulous and professional Salvador Moreno is thrown for a loop when the newly hired bartender Grace Zendejas suddenly invades his familys restaurant, and infuriatingly, his every thought.

Now hes scrambling to cover up a mistake he knows could cost him dearly. As his relationship with Grace grows even more serious, Sal's secret is a ticking bomb, threatening to destroy the one thing he now lives and breathes forhis relationship with the love of his lifeGrace.

Ok so if anyone is still alive out there tell me, how fricking hot are these!!!! I hope everyone loves them as much as I do!!!

What is the longest book you've read? What are your favorite 600+ page reads?

So this is totally not counting my textbooks for schooling, which I actually did read, and did read almost all of them. My nursing Med/Surg book I read about 80% of was 2,016 pages!!! Gah! But I'm sure you want books we read for pleasure! 

So far this year my longest book is Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens coming in at 546 pages!!!! I really loved this book because I mean hello, Kellan is in it!!! Gah!!! And then there is well um, sexy time with Kellan in it!!!! There were times I though that this was a bit long, but thats only because I wanted to smack Kiera upside her head!!!! But yea this was pretty much pure pleasure for me!!!! 

Last year my longest was City of Glass by Cassandra Clare at 541. I never really noticed the long pages with this one. 

But my longest of all time is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix with 896 pages!!!! I mean this was a beast and I remember back when I got to this point in the series I was so scared! The size of this book is so scary!!! And I had the hard cover to read!!! So yea I was so scared but damn was it so good!!! I do believe this is my favorite book aside from the last one. And then my other hefty book, which I BLEW though, is Breaking Dawn at 768 pages. And yes I wanted this one to be longer!!!

My favorite 500+ (I dont read to many that are 600+) books are: everything from above plus:
Harry Potter: Hallows (759), Goblet (734) and Prince (652) (I have a feeling that everyone will choose these books!!!) The Host and Eclipse (629)!!

Whats really interesting is that most of my favorite books are in the 400-page range!

So tell me, whats your longest book and your favorite books that double as a weapon?
