Cress (The Lunar Chronicles)


ARTHUR: Marissa Meyer

GENRE: Young Adult

RATING: Five Star


Cress is the continuation of Scarlet of The Lunar Chronicles. We already have Cinder who is the main character of all three fairy tale girls. Cinder is the Princess Selene from Luna that the Luna people think she is dead. However she is much alive and is causing a whole lot of mess according to Queen Levana. Cinder has manged to escape from Levana not just once but twice and she is furious. In this book we have the wedding going on and we meet Cress who Rapunzel. This Rapunzel is a spy who has reported to the queen but there is more to her…. We are also introduced to another character by the name of Winter…Which we will know more about her in the next book..


I am giving this book a five-star because this has been my favorite book of all three. Cress has a lot of action then all three books so far and that was one of the main reasons I really enjoyed reading it. Plus I was very curious about what Cinder was gonna do I really thought the queen and Kai were gonna get married I don’t know about the rest of you but I was surprised when the plan was to kidnap the Emperor I for sure thought it was not happening in this book but I am glad it did just when I thought the book was gonna finish it didn’t and I was happy it was long. Another surprise to for me was to find out that Cress was the daughter that the doctor thought she might be dead.

I was somewhat disappointed he didn’t tell her sooner and he waited when he had found out he was infected with the virus and that he was gonna die. I really liked how Cress described earth to Thorn and how he would always tell her to be more detailed describing thing. What I do hope that he ends up falling in love with her just how Cinder is in-love with Kai and Scarlet with Wolf I am pretty sure its gonna happen in the next book but we will have to see.

I did love the fact that he gave her a kiss and she played it off as if it was okay and he was in shock that she thought it was not a good kiss ha ha ha  it hurt his macho ego of ladies man.  But the best part of this book and that’s my opinion is the fact that Kai find out who is the Princess Selene and that its the one and only Cinder and his doubts of her using glamour on him were cleared and their feeling for one each other were out in the open.

He kissed her and asked her again if she was using her powers on him and she said no he replied just checking…We also meet Winter she is the queen’s daughter who doesn’t like to use her powers back on Luna. This princess has Scarlet has her new pet. Scarlet got tortured back in Luna and the Princess bought her and mistreated in front of the other lunar people but behind doors she was nice to her and a little crazy due to not using her powers. They say that lunar people who don’t use their powers start to lose their mind. And that’s where this story ended so we have pending the rescue of Scarlet and see what will Cinder do once she arrives at Luna and what will the people of Luna do once they know the truth and that the queen has been lying to them all these years….





Title: Proof

Author: Jordyn Redwood

Genre: Thriller

Description Dr Lilly Reeves is a young, accomplished ER physician with her whole life ahead of her but that life instantly changes when she becomes the fifth victim of a serial rapist. Believing it’s the only way to recover her reputation and secure peace for herself, Lily sets out to find and punish–herself, Lily sets out to find and punish her assailant. Sporting a mysterious tattoo and unusually colored eyes, the rapist should be easy to identify. He even leaves what police would consider solid evidence. But when Lilly believes she has found him, DNA testing clears him as a suspect. How can she prove he is guilty, If science says he is not?



This book was wonderful to read it. Proof is such a page turner the more I read the more I  want to read. I had to force my self to stop reading. That’s how good this books is, trust me you wont regret it. That is why I am rating this book FIVE STARS…

When Lily finds out who the rapist is and how close he had been all this time she goes after him because he was not charged with anything when she identified him plus she attacked him in public at her work place. She even went to jail because this jerk, there was no proof about what he had done. It was her word against him even when the color eyes matched and the tattoo he had in his body also matched I was like…WHAT THE HELL!!!


Let me tell you once Lily saw that there was not enough proof besides the obvious one like I mentioned before. Two different color eyes and the Tattoo that two woman had already described to the cops but that was not enough they needed to verify the Sperm Sample to see if it matched which didn’t they did find a match but it was not his it was his twin brother. The cops were shock to see how close they had been but were not able to arrest him. So the Rapist/Doctor was let go because of DNA not matching….

When I find out the doctor had a twin brother who went to prison and whats even worse his mother asked him to take the blame for his brother and he also did it because he felt responsible for not taking care of his brother when he was younger. I WAS IN SHOCKED….

Meanwhile Lily finds more dirt on her rapist she learns important facts about him that she can use to put him behind bars. But first she needed to talk to the rapist ex-wife but how was she going to find her and what was she going to say. That’s when she goes to find the accident reports on the news paper or anything she can find and that’s when she finds an article of the incident and where it took place she goes and visits and talks to the neighbors to see if she can find information and ask for her contact info. She was telling them that she was an old friend who had not talk to her in a long time and came to surprise visit her and one neighbor knew where this lady was but didn’t want to give her information out to Lily until he confirmed what Lily was saying was true.

While that’s going on back home the cops are going back to the victims to get more information on this guy, The cops find out where the rapist got his tattoo and they wanted to meet with this man to ask him a few questions. Once they found him and met with him he told the cops what the rapist had talked to him about. He told the cops that the people who came to him and talked a whole bunch of nonsense and that they brag and that he doesn’t take serious what his costumers tell him. The cops did ask him what this rapist had bragged about. He replied that he was going to do some things and that he never would get blamed for. He was going to get away with it. The cops were on to something very big so they went to back to the office to talk about this serial rapist patterns. But as they continue to find out more they still needed to find the twin brother.  The cops were anxious to find him.

LILY THEN CONTACTS… her friend who was there for her after the incident. She had decided to give her baby’s in adoption but to someone who would take good care of them. She also told him to make all the arrangements for her to just go and deliver the babies but that the only thing was that she didn’t want to have them in the hospital. So now her friend had to find a place and a person who could take the children in. And he had the right person just to do it. He then asked her where she was all this time and she didn’t want to say so that he wouldn’t be at risk. 

LILY GETS……contacted by her rapist ex-wife and she goes to see her and there this woman gives Lily very valuable information about her serial rapist and she finds out he was a killer too. The Ex wife also told Lily that her ex husband didn’t believe the children where his so she went to get DNA  proof but something went wrong she couldn’t explain it. She told Lily that she had a friend there that was helping her with that and that she had sent those DNA samples to another doctor so they could verify if the children where his. But then the accident happen and she stopped looking. But the friend did find something and she just didn’t want to know now. Lily did ask for her contact information so she could talk to her. The Ex wife did she Lily was pregnant and asked if the baby was her Ex husband Lily replied yes and that they were twins too. Lily got the information of this female doctor that had valuable information for Lily that would help her with her investigation. The Ex-wife arranged a meeting for Lily and the woman to meet. Lily was happy with the news and as she was getting up and ready to walk out this woman’s apartment and opens the door Lily see’s him Lily is in so much shock that she faints.


WHEN THE… twin brother then see’s Lily at the door and she faints he then rushed her to a small clinic where they could help her. He took her there so that no one would  recognize Lily since she was being looked for the death of her friend and the twin brother didn’t wanted to be identified either since they would confuse him for his twin brother he did not want to go back to jail.

Lily then wakes up and she thinks she see’s her rapist again and she quickly moves her hands to her belly checking that the babies were okay. She then looked at him again and she could see that he would not move because he wanted to talk to explained to her who he was and that he wanted to help her put his twin brother in jail for all those victims he rapped and the death of all his children. And for letting him go to jail for a murder he did not commit.


Now that Lily found the twin brother too without looking for him she accepts his help and they both go out looking for woman who Lily need to speak to regarding the rapist ex-wife children. Lily and her rapist twin brother goes to this dinner to meet with the woman and Lily finds out this Medical term that they use and what it is and how it works and the only way to find out is through children DNA. Which was music to her ears but she still had to wait until the children were born to be able to take action against her serial killer.

When Lily leaves the Dinner she gets in the car and her brother’s rapist drives off and the woman too her car explodes and Lily wants to go back to help her. But the brother refuses because there is nothing they can do and now the cops were going to investigate and they were going to find out that they were both there with this woman and her rapist will find out too. Everything was getting out of control and she was soon to delivery the babies. She had the twin brother drive her to a secret place but first she needed to call her friend to get directions of this place….

LILY THEN CALLS HER FRIEND…..And asks for directions to this cabin that he got for her to have the babies but he still urged her to go to the hospital to have them. Lily refused to listen plus she now had the answer she needed so she didn’t just go through hell to get this info and to get arrested for he friends murder and who knows what would happen to the babies what if her serial killer wanted to get them and get rid of them. And there was the twin brother who didn’t want to go back to jail either..

NOW BACK HOME THE COPS FOUND….Out where Lily was this whole time and they needed to reach her. So the cops went to the hospital where Lily use to work so they can talk to her male friend because they were for sure he knew where Lily was this whole time. When the cops get there and talk to Lily’s friend he spills the beans for Lily’s safety and the cop and Lily’s friend go to meet with her but they didn’t know that the rapist twin brother was with her that was a surprise they were going to find out.

By then also the serial rapist was behind Lily and his twin brother chasing them trying to cause an accident so that Lily could lose the babies. She was so scared for her life the last thing she remembered before crashing was this man chasing them and how was she going to save the babies.


Arafura Unfinished Business

Title: Arafura Unfinished Business

Author: Susan Lattwein

Genre: Romantic Suspense/Drama


My Review 

I have a lot to say about this book. I was looking forward to this book after reading the first book. It felt a long time but it was a sweet book, good read, page turner this book has it all Drama, Suspense and Romance. Katherine and Adam are the main characters. They story is a crazy one but a good one. Katherine was engaged to Lucas but when she met Adam she fell over heels for him. There was chemistry between them. Katherine was a good-looking gal and Adam is you HOT GUY did I say HOT just making sure. He was Tall,Muscular and Mysterious. But Adam suffered of Post Traumatic Stress.

When he comes back to rescue Kat from some terrorist who kidnapped her to get to him. She was afraid and scared because she didn’t know how she was going to get out of that one and on top of that Adam was dead. She thought she was never going to see her stepsister Lily and Sam. These awful men wanted to rape her because she wasn’t tell them where Adam was dead. And on top of that they were planning to set up a bomb in an US Ship and wanted Adams help.

When Adam came to the rescued Katherine thought she was dreaming how could Adam survived that boat crash in the storm that night. Katherine felt a whole bunch of emotions she wouldn’t stop talking he told her to be quite they were going to hear them. Just as they were leaving they men heard them and went after them and now they were all in a boat in the middle of the ocean. Adam was getting tortured and Katherine was dying because she stilled cared for him.

And that’s it you guys have to read the rest to find out where this story ends. Trust me you wont regret it! This book is fast paced with the Drama and Suspense. If you are a male and want to read it go for it you will absolutely enjoy it.

That’s Why I am giving this book a five star…Because I was happy with the story and how it ended. I got this book for free because I am so awesome. Just kidding I got the first book for free for an honest review and then a became a fan of Susan’s writing is the best because she could not stop making her books characters get out of my mind and head. I was always wondering how this second book will turn out. And I had no idea but it was such a page turner and I had to force my self to stop reading. I even told her I was going to take my time to read it because I had read the first book too quick and I wanted to enjoy this one. But oh boy I couldn’t resist it. I started slow and then I said to myself what am I saying I need to find out more I just couldn’t get enough. Of hot sexy Adam you know how they say which book character you would want to date definitively Adam is my book boyfriend. Crazy right because I thought that was a little too crazy I guess I just joined the club.

I want to rate this book a five star because it was beautiful written. Even though she was not able to publish it before she passed away. It was a good read I got to know her even more as a person before she had all the fame. Her journey was hard and sad but very happy at the end. I don’t want to say too much because I want you to read it. I hope you give her a chance to tell you her story and how She came out of it.

I read this autobiography a while back but today it will be two year anniversary of her passing I wanted to share it.

I would also like to share with you some quotes of things she would use to say.that inspired me and that always gave me hope in those hard times in life. She is my idol a rod-model because she would say things are not given to us we have to work for them. And with that said here are some quotes of things she would say.
