Book Review: Infinity(bk1) by Jus Accardo

(I received this ARC copy by the publisher via Netgalley).
Goodreads Summary: There are three things Kori knows for sure about her life:

One: Her army general dad is insanely overprotective.

Two: The guy he sent to watch her, Cade, is way too good-looking.

Three: Everything she knew was a lie.

Now there are three things Kori never knew about her life:

One: There’s a device that allows her to jump dimensions.

Two: Cade’s got a lethal secret.

Three: Someone wants her dead.

I read Infinity in one sitting! It was fast paced from the beginning and I loved it. Infinity is about a teenager named Kori that has a knack for getting in trouble. Her father is in the military and has a high ranking not to mention he is very much over protective of Kori.  Kori rebelliousness causes her father to put things into his hands and have two "supervisors" watch over her while he is gone away. In the mist of the two strangers and other dangers Kori's life gets complicated and things that she thought she knew about her life was not entirely correct. 

I liked Kori's character. She has an extremely smart mouth and is very sarcastic. She didn't want anyone to pity her. She was strongwilled which was something that I really loved about her.  Her personality didn't take any BS from anybody and she may have made some reckless decisions but her heart was always in the right place.   

Cade and Noah are the two strangers that are sent to her by her father. They both have a story with Kori and they try desperately to hide their true feelings because of events that happened in their life. Dylan is a villain that you want to hate but you can't because in a nutshell...he is hurting. Not to justify is actions but that is pretty much it. Confession: He is my favorite type of villain. 

The writing was so good. I read this in one sitting and I couldn't believe how much fast paced this was and not feeling rushed except for the ending. I was looking for a little bit more action with the ending but it was still good. The setting was very interesting. I loved the parallel worlds and jumping from different worlds. This is one of my favorite type of sci-fi books.  I'm really looking forward to the next installment.

Rating 4.5 Stars

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.

Book Review: Class of '59 by John Heldt

(I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads summary: When Mary Beth McIntire settles into a vacation house on June 2, 2017, she anticipates a quiet morning with coffee. Then she hears a noise, peers out a window, and spots a man in 1950s attire standing in the backyard. She panics when the trespasser sees her and enters the house though a door to the basement. She questions her sanity when she cannot find him.

In the same house on March 21, 1959, Mark Ryan finds a letter. Written by the mansion’s original owner in 1900, the letter describes a basement chamber, mysterious crystals, and a formula for time travel. Driven by curiosity, Mark tests the formula twice. On his second trip to 2017, he encounters a beautiful stranger. He meets the woman in the window.

Within hours, Mary Beth and Mark share their secret with her sister and his brother and begin a journey that takes them from the present day to the age of sock hops, drive-ins, and jukeboxes. In CL…

June Wrap Up

So for this month I did really good and read a total of 11 books! Two of those books were on my original TBR and the rest I picked up as a I saw. Normally on average I read about 4 or 5 a month but my reading has really been doing good. So here is all I read for the month of June.

Most of these were 4 stars. I read more contemporary than any genre. Home and Away is a book for School Library Journal so unfortunately I cannot share that review at this time. Have anyone of you guys read any of these topics?
