This review is for Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter.
The reason this review took so long to get to you guys was that I couldn’t find it on the library catalogue so I thought the library didn’t own it? But I just re-searched today and it’s on… that was a little odd but I’m not mad about it 🙂 Anyways, I read it on Hoopla so if you’re more of an e-book person, this one’s for you sis.
No synopsis for you guys, sorry but if you want to know what the books about just read the summaries from my reviews of the previous two books!
Thoughts: I LOVED this finale. It was a lot deeper than the first and second books which made it more emotion-filled (I cried. Just a little though!). The ending was very satisfying (especially in terms of romance) so if you’re one to get mad about unsatisfying conclusions (like me), you won’t be disappointed here. I really loved the romance that was in this book as well because it wasn’t super intense, not everything was about it; but it was always there, very sweet and very, very adorable. I HIGHLY recommend this book, you really will not regret it. My final rating is 5/5 stars.
P.S. From now on, I’m going to rate books out of 10 instead of 5 because I feel like there are amazing books and then there are completely life-changing ones and I really need to differentiate them.
Hey guys, it’s that time of year again: time for the annual Teen SRC!! To start this year off, I’m reviewing I’d Tell You I Love You, but Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter.
This is a book about an all-girls spy school and the adventures a few of the students have. The main character is a girl named Cameron, nicknamed Cammie, code-named The Chameleon because she can blend in very well with her surroundings. Her mother is the principal of the school and also a professional secret agent as are all of her teachers. I picked this book up at the Whale of a Book Sale expecting a cute little spy story with an unimportant plotline and some lessons about friendship along the way but I got SO MUCH MORE than that. The story is actually very well thought-out, captivating and intricate. This is a classic example of “don’t judge a book by its cover” because guilty as charged, I tend to do that a lot XD.
This is the first of a 6 book series and it is the lightest read out of all of them. In a way, it’s kind of like Harry Potter, the plotline just gets darker as the girls get older which means although the “cute little spy story” stereotype may still apply a little to this first book, it completely disappears as the story progresses.
All in all, I absolutely LOVED this book although it is not my favourite in the series so I’ll have to give it 4/5 stars. The one thing about this book is that it probably would not interest boys and is very much geared towards girls. With that said though, !SPOILER ALERT!, a boys’ spy school might exist as well :))
Perfect: A Pretty Little Liars book is written by Sara Shepard
The third book in the Pretty Little Liars Book, the story picks up from where it last stopped. A continues to send threatening messages, planning to expose Alison DiLaurentis best friends for their secrets which were supposed to die with Alison. Spencer’s parents send her to her therapy, thinking it will help her feel better with all of the mysterious deaths happening around. Hanna wants to improve her relationship with her friend, at the same time look good in everything she wears. Aria wants to improve her relationship with her mom and her English A.P teacher Mr. Fitz. Emily wants to redeem herself in her parent’s eyes, by being the swim team captain and stepping in line with the family. Will the four Girls find out who is this mysterious A or will they be exposed, one by one?
This was a great book. I would rate this book a 5/5. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy reading about drama, mystery, and thriller. This book had a good plot and I liked that it was written in the perspective of all four girls. This helped unreel the story bit by bit.
The Name Of This Book Is A Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch
In this book Cassandra is an 11 year old girl who is prepared for anything. From earthquakes to floods to even hurricanes, she has it all in her backpack that she always wears. Cass is a kid who isn’t like the others, she doesn’t really have any friends until she meets Max-Ernest another misfit kid. Max-Ernest is a kid like others just without many friends and who has a strange life. His parents are divorced but still live in the same house. You see their house is divided into two, but neither parent can cross the middle.
Theres real-estate agent for the deceased named Gloria. She cleans out peoples houses and tries to sell them. But one day she comes across a box labeled “The Symphony of Smells” in a old magicians home. Gloria gave the box to Cass and her grandfathers. Cass and Max-Ernest want to find out more on this box and magician so they become partners and start digging for clues. But what they didn’t know is that two people want that same box. The two find out that the house and box belonged to Pietro Bergamo. After digging a little bit more they soon find a secret room.
Back to the two people, they are Ms. Mauvais and Dr. L. The two of them are part of the Midnight Sun Spa. Ms. Mauvais and Dr. L find out that Cass and Max-Ernest have the box but they also want a special song and they think that Cass has it in a notebook she found that was writen by Pietro. Ms. Mauvais and Dr. L look for Cass and Max-Ernest at their school. Cass goes to the Midnight Sun pretending to be someone else but soon discovers that its an evil business that Ms. Mauvais and Dr. L made. Max-Ernest and Cass do many secret things there and in the end lets just say there is no more Midnight Sun.
I found this book very interesting because you would never know what was going to happen next. I like how the author of The Name Of This Book Is A Secret kept certain things a secret like where they where and when it was, it always kept you in suspense. I think Cass is an interesting person and I would definitely recommend this book to you. I have read the next book in the Secret Series (If your reading this book its too late) and loved it. The next book is a continuation of the first with another adventure in the hands of Cass and Max-Ernest! I can’t wait to read the third book.
