A Royal Match
By Tyne O'Connell
Paperback, 512 pages
Published February 15th 2011 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens 
***My Rating: 2 Stars***
Can a normal American girl really catch a prince?
When LA-born Calypso Kelly arrives at the exclusive all-girls British boarding school, St. Augustine's, she's determined to become popular. But when a photo of Calypso kissing England's heir to the throne, Prince Freddie, ends up in the tabloids, it will take quick thinking to save her reputation-and her relationship with the prince.

After the tabloid disaster, Calypso hopes her next term at St. Augustine's will be better. But nothing could be further from the truth. Her archenemy (and culprit of the tabloid disaster) Honey O'Hare is her new dorm mate and her invite to the Annual Euro Royal Bash is nonexistent. Will a flirtation with a hot new sports star from the boys' school ruin her chances with Prince Freddie? Calypso has some work to do if she wants to go from pumpkin to princess in time for the ball.
Soo what do I think?
I don't know man....all the characters were stuck up and prissy.Dude I get that teenage years are a trying time in a person's life..I'm a teen...and we do not back stab each other every chance we get. I wanted to slap Calypso for leading Billy and Freddie on....honestly.Slap her.
She's like 'awhh this isn't two timing (the whole time she was txt flirting with them) I'm just trying to decide who I like better' Rolling my eyes here guys. Rolling my eyes.
Oh well.Glad its over. Never gonna read that again. Ever. No no no no. Sorry. Just-no.

Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry, #1)

Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry, #1)
By: Simone Elkeles
Paperback, 359 pages
Published December 23rd 2008 by Walker Books for Young Readers
ISBN: 0802798225 (ISBN13: 9780802798220)

A fresh, urban twist on the classic tale of star-crossed lovers.

When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created 'perfect' life is about to unravel before her eyes. She's forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for: her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect.

Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.

In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.


4.75 Stars---->okay maybe 5

What I Think:

Okay fine. 5. I Loved it. I can't believe I waited so long to read it. It was pretty freaking perfect..that's kinda what made it so amazing.
Both Brittany and Alex are actors in their own lives. They live the life they need to lead at school but at home it's a completely different story. Brittany had the life everyone wants to have: the perfect boyfriend, captain of the cheer team and is the girl every guy wants.
Alex is her polar opposite. He's in a gang, the school bad boy.
“We're actors in our lives, pretendin' to be who we want people to think we are.” 
Both of them have a dream. They both want to escape the lives they have. To leave the gang, not have to pretend. 
Along the way they find each other. They lean to love, hope, dream and be themselves. They tear down the others barrier and find something neither of them ever even though they'd have: each other.

“You are the one girl that made me risk eveything for a future worth having.”
So yeah. Read it.

Then Jordan dumps Courtney -- for a girl he met on the Internet.
It's too late to change plans, so the road trip is on. Courtney's heartbroken, but figures she can tough it out for a few days. La la la -- this is Courtney pretending not to care.
But in a strange twist, Jordan cares. A lot.

 The Essence (The Pledge, #2)

Finally got the ARC I was waiting for!!!

The Essence(Pledge #2)
Kimberly Derting
Release January 2013

“Danger, dread, mystery, and romance” (Booklist) continue in the second book of The Pledge trilogy, as Charlie’s reign is under siege from the most unusual of enemies.

At the luminous conclusion of The Pledge, Charlaina defeated the tyrant Sabara and took her place as Queen of Ludania. But Charlie knows that Sabara has not disappeared: The evil queen’s Essence is fused to Charlie’s psyche, ready to arise at the first sign of weakness.

Charlie is not weak, but she’s being pushed to the brink. In addition to suppressing the ever-present influence of Sabara, she’s busy being queen—and battling a growing resistance determined to return Ludania to its discriminatory caste system. Charlie wants to be the same girl Max loves, who Brook trusts, but she’s Your Majesty now, and she feels torn in two.

As Charlie journeys to an annual summit to meet with leaders of nearby Queendoms—an event where her ability to understand all languages will be the utmost asset—she is faced with the ultimate betrayal. And the only person she can turn to for help is the evil soul residing within.

Cannot wait to start reading!!!
