    51uaf%2bctk0l._sl160_From the description, Beauty Queens, looked like a fun book but after reading the first chapter I didn't like it at all. The way it was written, I didn't like, and the plot could have been better. I only read to like the fourth chapter and got really tired and bored of it. It is worth a try if you want to read it, but be warned it is disapointing.

    51fhjurvvvl._sl160_This is one of my favorite books ever. There have been a lot of alien dystopian type books recently, but this one is really good and definitely worth reading. It is about aliens that took over earth, and mainly focuses on Cassie, one of the few humans left, who is trying live up to a promise she made to her younger brother. It is mostly present, but has some background info which are her memories and explains why everything is how it is. The different parts kinda confused me but it was interesting how the author did it. There are some really shocking parts, and I think it was really amazing how the author came up with the intricate plot. It is very different than the Hunger Games but as good, if not better, so I advise everyone to read it.

    51tu-gt5uzl._sl160_OH MY GODS. HOLD YOUR CHERRY COKE GUYS 'CAUSE UNCLE TROLLIN' RICK IS IN DA HOUSEEEE!!! Okay. PREDICTION TIME! (I KNOW YOU SECRETLY LOOK FORWARD TO THESE!!) *Prediction* (WARNING: PERACHEL HERE!! HAHAHAHA! TIS A SHIP MEANT TO BE SUNK!) Octavian meets Rachel, their eyes meet, they lean forward, inching closer together. Rachel unsheathes an unseen dagger and plunges it into Octavian's heart, ripping out his innards like he did to all the innocent stuffed animals. "How do you like that Octavian? Is this your type of medicine?" Rachel sneered. Octavian did not respond as his eyes glazed over and he slumped forward into her waiting arms. What Rachel didn't know was, with Octavian being the first demigod's blood spilt on the damp soil, Gaia awoke and reigned terror on the Seven's ship. They died battling until their last breath, Gaia let Leo, the scrawny elf-boy's ghost, to haunt Calypso, her Grand-Daughter. When Percy and Annabeth's bodies were recovered and sent to CHB, she cried over Percy's cold, cold body but glared at Annabeth's. She then buried Percy under the moonlight and near the thrashing waves. She buried Annabeth's nowhere near his as she planned when she died, Rachel would be buried as his Queen and he would have already been her King. Led by Rachel's jealousy, the demigods failed to defeat Gaia. Gaia overthrew the Gods and replaced them with her children. When Rachel did die, her bones were burnt and scattered on the mat below Gaia's feet, millions of miles away from the Percy that never loved her back. Annabeth willed her bones to rebury them next to Percy's and lace her finger bones around his so he and she could forever remain entwined.
