Invisibility by Andrea Cremer & David Levithan Review

11147422[1]Goodreads Description: Stephen has been invisible for practically his whole life — because of a curse his grandfather, a powerful cursecaster, bestowed on Stephen’s mother before Stephen was born. So when Elizabeth moves to Stephen’s NYC apartment building from Minnesota, no one is more surprised than he is that she can see him. A budding romance ensues, and when Stephen confides in Elizabeth about his predicament, the two of them decide to dive headfirst into the secret world of cursecasters and spellseekers to figure out a way to break the curse. But things don’t go as planned, especially when Stephen’s grandfather arrives in town, taking his anger out on everyone he sees. In the end, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how big of a sacrifice they’re willing to make for Stephen to become visible — because the answer could mean the difference between life and death. At least for Elizabeth.

My Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars

My Review: 

So this book is nothing like I had expected. Which is good and bad.. I am not familiar with David Levithan’s writing but I’m guessing he does romance or something like that. I AM familiar with Andrea Cremer’s writing, she’s one of my favorite authors (oh how I love Shay!)She writes paranormal and fantasy. I could kind of see where Levithan’s influence in the book stopped half way and Cremer started the paranormal stuff. I think I would’ve more enjoyed the book if their writing was more of a good mix rather than half and half. Because I wasn’t really seeing the romance between Elizabeth and Stephen as much in the second half of the book. I liked the fact that Stephen had his own POV! I rarely get to read what’s going on in the guy’s head. But I didn’t like the fact that there wasn’t any warning to when the point of views were switching. I would be reading in Stephen’s POV and then he would suddenly get cut off on the next paragraph by Elizabeth’s. I think it would’ve been better if there was a little bit more organization with it. The book was interesting to me until I discovered the main conflict, which was about on page 124. After I discovered the conflict, the book started to get boring. It was missing action. Although I regained that interest, it seemed like there should’ve something more in the book.

I believe Stephen is my new book boyfriend 🙂 He is so sweet and he thinks about everyone else. Yup, he’s mine!

15 Day Book Blogging Challenge Day 5 & 6

Sorry guys, I missed day 5. I had a lot to do yesterday, though. Last day of swimming lessons, yay!  And I went to the library and FINALLY got Invisibility by Andrea Cremer (the author to the Nightshade Series, which I LOVED!! Team Shay ❤)and David Levithan. So I’m just going to buddy it up with day 6 ( which I’ll probably do for others, too) and hope it isn’t an extremely long post.

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge | Good Books And Good Wine

Day 5 is to recommend a tearjerker. This is kind of hard for me because I absolutely hate books that make me cry, its just so emotional!

But I would recommend Night by Elie Wiesel

1617[1]I read this book as a freshman, I think I really connected to the book because the Jewish Holocaust is interesting to me. Plus the fact the amount of intensity that Elie showed while going through every single event. And the fact that the inmates didn’t deserve any of that crap. And all I could do was sit there and read…

The events themselves are very heartbreaking, but the way Elie tells it.. It’s as if you are living his life and experiencing it yourself. And the large amounts of what he lost, and the fact that he was only a teenager.

I am not a stickler for historical books. But if anyone had to read at least one historical book, they should read this one.

 

Day 6!! The prompt for today is to describe how you shop for books. I am going to change this to ‘Describe how you borrow books from the library’ because I rarely buy books, unless it’s part of a series that I already have. Or if I’m really in love with it.

So! It’s very simple, I browse the young adult section.. I’m slowly walking down the aisle with my fingers barely touching the spine. And I look at every title. When I feel the tingling feeling on my fingertips I know that I found another book. I pull the book out, the deal breaker is the cover. If it’s an intriguing cover then I’m getting it.

If it’s on the “Lucky Day” shelf then I just have to look at the covers and grab them.

 

I'm just starting out; leave me a comment or a like :)
