The Week's Entrée #18


Feliz Monday everyone! Thanks for stopping by to read another edition of The Week's Entrée. 

First, omg you guys, I went to see The Fault In Our Stars last Saturday with my sister! 



It's so beautiful, you're going to love it. Definitely the best YA adaptation ever and the feels are there every moment. I saw it in spanish (sucks, right? that's why I didn't cry) but it wasn't that bad. My only complain of the experience was the exagerated noise the teens were making every.damn.moment of the movie, they totally ticked me off, but other than that, it was excellent.

Oh, and some weird fact, I cry every time I watch the trailer. I'm telling you, it's the english version that gets to me, not dubbed in spanish.


*Cries* See? 

In other news...






I have a new review up at Cuzinlogic! This one is for the third and final book of The Bloodstone Trilogy, Where All Souls Meet. It was an okay ending but not the great one I was expecting. If you want to check it out you can find it Here.

Coin Heist by Elisa Ludwig
Published: June 6th, 2014 / Adaptive Studios
Genre: YA Contemporary, Mystery
The last place you’d expect to find a team of criminals is at a prestigious Philadelphia prep school. But on a class trip to the U.S. Mint – which prints a million new coins every 30 minutes – an overlooked security flaw becomes far too tempting for a small group of students to ignore.

United by dire circumstances, these unlikely allies – the slacker, the nerd, the athlete, and the "perfect" student – band together to attempt the impossible: rob the U.S. Mint. The diverse crew is forced to confront their true beliefs about each other and themselves as they do the wrong thing for the right reasons.

Elisa Ludwig's Coin Heist is a fun, suspenseful, and compelling thriller, told from the revolving perspectives of four teens, each with their own motive for committing a crime that could change all of their lives for the better—if they can pull it off.
This new release was a freebie yesterday at Amazon and it seems that it's still one today. Hurry and grab your copy because it sounds like a good one. Click here to get it.

Tall and lanky, Genie Lowry is only noticed at academic awards assemblies—until the day she turns 17 1/2, when her body changes from Kate-Hudson-flat to Katy-Perry-curvy—and she finds out she’s a real, live genie. Suddenly, every guy at school is paying attention to her, including Pete Dillon, her never-in-a-million-years crush. 

But to gain her full powers and keep her new body, Genie has to find a master, and she’s not sure if Pete’s Master (or Mr.) Right. With help from her dead mother’s interactive diary and an imposing mentor with questionable motives, Genie uncovers the family history and genie rules she never knew. She grapples with her new powers and searches for the perfect master as she tries to make her own wishes come true.

{For Review} 


The Last Island by David hogan
Published: November 4th, 2013/Betimes Books
Genre: Fiction
A universal tale of escape, love and redemption. A Boston fireman, in an attempt to flee personal and professional tragedy, accepts a job as a bartender on a Greek island. In an isolated cove, he meets Kerryn, an animal rights activist who believes dolphins possess consciousness, intelligence and souls. Kerryn enjoys an extraordinary and personal relationship with a dolphin and is waging a covert war to stop the local fishermen from using illegal nets that not only deplete the sea of fish but also take dolphins’ lives. The fireman is pulled into this conflict as his relationship with Kerryn deepens. But Kerryn’s passion and convictions lead her to make a fatal decision that changes the island and both their lives forever. The novel’s emotional landscape and its themes of environmentalism, animal rights, and the costs of capitalism make The Last Island both timely and timeless.
David Hogan was super nice to send me a physical copy of The Last Island! The Chef is dying to read it but I won't let her because I'm mean (and because I want to read it first). ;)

  1. I am so excited to go and watch TFIOS, That trailer really chokes me up every time! I don;t really like going to watch new movies the first week if release though because of the teeny-boppers. Oh Three wishes looks awesome, hope you enjoy it!!

    1. True. It's so much better once the hype has died down a bit. Makes me wish I had waited a little bit more. :/
