Shiver Review

Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)
Description from goodreads:
the cold.
Grace has spent years watching the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—watches back. He feels deeply familiar to her, but she doesn't know why.

the heat.
Sam has lived two lives. As a wolf, he keeps the silent company of the girl he loves. And then, for a short time each year, he is human, never daring to talk to Grace...until now.

the shiver.
For Grace and Sam, love has always been kept at a distance. But once it's spoken, it cannot be denied. Sam must fight to stay human—and Grace must fight to keep him—even if it means taking on the scars of the past, the fragility of the present, and the impossibility of the future.


When Grace was little she was taken by the wolves from her back yard. For years she has watched one wolf, looked for him, looked forward to the cold to see him. Her yellow eyed wolf.

Sam watches Grace, when he is human never dares to talk to her, but always watches.

I loved this book, Sam was such a sweetheart, I couldn't help but love him. Sam and Grace were always fighting to keep him a secret and to keep him. I also found it kind of wierd that Grace's parents never knew that Sam was living with Grace, my parents are so nosy that Sam would be found in about two minutes of being in the house.

I also learned about Sam's troubled past and I felt so sorry for him, this book was awesome. It was romantic and sweet. 4/5

Delirium Review

Delirium (Delirium, #1)

Description from goodreads:
Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

In a world where love is a disease and a surgery upon turning 18 is the cure, a young girl must choose love or feel nothing.

I love this book, so different and hard to believe that love could ever be a disease, I love, in there world they are punished for it. No freedom to love, listen to certain types of music, always being monitored, it would feel like a prison.

I liked the love between the characters and the passion they felt for eachother, even though they knew the consequences, they loved eachother enough to give up everything, it was beautiful!!!! 5/5

I recieved this book from the author in January and here's the review.

I LOVED this book, I am in awe of Lacy's writing it is simply amazing. I got this book from the author and I apologize to her for not getting the review up sooner. Bree and Steven are perfect together and I love all the drama that goes down between everything. The story is original and I love it so much. 5/5

Books I can't wait for!!!!!!


Beastly Review!


Description from goodreads:

Now a major motion picture starring Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer
I am a beast.
A beast!
Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright. I am a monster.
You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It's no deformity, no disease. And I'll, stay this way forever ruined unless I can break the spell.
Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly...beastly.

Alex was beautiful and popular and made fun of the "ugly". So when he messes with the witch in his english class he is turned into a beast. Then his father sends him away to live in secret, know one will know about the beast. Kyle watches people through the wiche's morror and soon finds the girl he was once kind too, after some circumstances involving her father she is forced to live at the beasts house and soon Kyle learns what true beauty is.

I did not like Kyle at all at first, but I soon did. Getting turned into a beast was good for Kyle, taught him to learn what other people felt, and to love. I enjoyed getting to know Kyle and Lynda; who was an avid reader like myself, Kyle was a better person after, it was a cute love story. 4/5

Sunday, February 20, 2011 blog name.

So I changed the name of my blog, I new I would change it eventually, nicolelovescoacoa is my youtube name, but it is not very fitting for a book blog. Coacoa (I know wierd spelling) is my precious dog and I am Nicole and I love Coacoa, get it? I know, stupid right, but it's true.

If you know of another blog with this name please share this information with me, there are none to my knowledge. Please do tell me if there are.

Night Review

Night (Night, #1)

Description from goodreads:
Night A terrifying account of the Nazi death camp horror that turns a young Jewish boy into an agonized witness to the death of his family...the death of his innocence...and the death of his God. Penetrating and powerful, as personal as The Diary Of Anne Frank, Night awakens the shocking memory of evil at its absolute and carries with it the unforgettable message that this horror must never be allowed to happen again.


(I read this for English, thought I would tell you my thoughts)

Elie was just a boy when his family was ripped from him and he was forced into a Nazi death camp, it is a personal story of how he survived and all the pain that he went through.

This was a really sad book, I cried a lot. It made me think about what if I lost my family, if I lost my home, everything. Just taken to a camp and having to be a prisoner. People were starved, very ill. It makes you think how could a human being do this to other people, they listened to one man and people died, a lot of people.

At the beginning of this book because of  Moishe the Beadle I felt that the people could have been saved because Moishe warned people, telling them what happened, what would happen, but people chose not to believe him, it was too evil. They were wrong.5/5

Crescendo Review

Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2)
Description from goodreads:

Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but atleast she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar.

Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Path hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something.

Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperatly searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.


 So I enjoyed Hush, Hush so I was excited to read Crescendo, I have just gotten around to reading it now though.

so at first I thought it was just Nora and Patch fighting ALL the time. I was also thinking for about half the book that Patch was an ass. Well then we find out reasons for his actions.

Once again Nora has someone trying to kill her, and once again she thinks it may be Patch, and once again it isn't, but it does kind of look like it....hee hee

I was happy for Vee to find Rixon (Patch's Bestie) and I actully liked him at first, well up until a point.

I was surprised at the ending, it was quite enjoyable, while the other half I thought went pretty slow. There were alot of twists and stuff I didn't expect to happen, it was great. 4/5

Two Way Street Review

Two-Way Street

Description from goodreads:

There are two sides to every breakup.

This is Jordan and Courtney, totally in love. Sure, they were an unlikely high school couple. But they clicked; it worked. They're even going to the same college, and driving cross-country together for orientation.

Then Jordan dumps Courtney -- for a girl he met on the Internet.

It's too late to change plans, so the road trip is on. Courtney's heartbroken, but figures she can tough it out for a few days. La la la -- this is Courtney pretending not to care.

But in a strange twist, Jordan cares. A lot.

Turns out, he's got a secret or two that he's not telling Courtney. And it has everything to do with why they broke up, why they can't get back together, and how, in spite of it all, this couple is destined for each other.

Jordan just dumped Courtney for a girl he met online, now on top of that they are traveling across the country for college together. Cortney is devestated, but acts like she could care less, Jordan acts like they could be friends, but Courtney doesn't want that; boyfriend or nothing. Jordan cares for Courtney a lot, but the secrets he has are  too big to keep, and it has everything to do with why they broke up and  why they can't get back together.

I really liked this book, I read it on Valentine's Day, it was my hot date.It was a nice story with a happy ending and lots of bumps along the road.

At first I thought Jordan was a doosh; dumping Courtney then going out with a girl he met online. Then I found out the reason he did it so he seemed less dooshe-like. It was good how it all worked out and seeing how much the characters actully cared for eachother. 4/5

Rules of Attraction Review

Rules of Attraction (Perfect Chemistry, #2)

Description from goodreads:
When Carlos Fuentes returns to America after living in Mexico for a year, he doesn’t want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him at a high school in Colorado . Carlos likes living his life on the edge and wants to carve his own path—just like Alex did. Then he meets Kiara Westford. She doesn’t talk much and is completely intimidated by Carlos’ wild ways. As they get to know one another, Carlos assumes Kiara thinks she’s too good for him, and refuses to admit that she might be getting to him. But he soon realizes that being himself is exactly what Kiara needs right now.


Once again we join the Fuentes brothers, only this time it's Carlos that is the main focus. Carlos is rebellious just like Alex was. when Carlos meets Kiara, his life changes. Kiara is completely different than Carlos- quiet, good student, good citizen, and Carlos wants nothing to do with her. When Carlos breaks the rules and has to stay with Kiara's family, he discovers who the real Kiara is and Kiara realizes she needs him more than she thinks.

I loved this book, I liked it just as much as the first which was surprising to me because I was just in love with Alex, but I like Carlos too. Kiara was different than Brittany which was good, and Carlos and Alex were sort of alike, though I did enjoy getting to see Alex after he had changed so much. I think Carlos grew into a better person, he changed for the better, which was nice to see. 5/5

Izzy's Popstar Plan

Description from booksneeze:

Izzy Baxter has big plans—popstar plans.
Ever since she was six, she’s dreamed of becoming the world’s next singing sensation. Now sixteen, her singing career is on the rise, and she’s been selected to compete on the hit TV show International Popstar Challenge. As Izzy performs in far off locations such as Tokyo and Paris, it seems as if her plans are coming off without a hitch. But God has plans of His own, and Izzy will soon discover that living for Him is “way cooler” than megastar fame.
Presented like a daily blog, set up like a devotional, and read like a novel—this book will be an instant hit with tween girls. This cutting edge new product will meet girls where they are, and girls will love following Izzy on her incredible adventure. Plus, they’ll get daily spiritual food to equip them on their own incredible adventure with God.

Izzy wants to be a star, when her dream  comes true with out any problems, but she soon discovers living for god is much better than fame.

I liked the book, it was an easy read and it flowed without a hitch. Izzy is a likeable character. I really enjoyed Izzy and reading about her life. It was like I was experiencing everything with her and getting to see everything through her eyes. But it was childish, if I was younger I think I would really like this more. 2/5

Hearts At Stake (Drake Chronicles 1) Review

Hearts At Stake (The Drake Chronicles #1)

description (Hearts At Stake) from goodreads:

 On Solange’s sixteenth birthday, she is going to wake up dead. As if that’s not bad enough, she also has to outwit her seven overprotective older brothers, avoid the politics involved with being the only daughter born to an ancient vampire dynasty, and elude Kieran Black—agent of an anti-vampire league who is searching for his father’s killer and is intent on staking Solange and her entire family.
Luckily she has her own secret weapon—her human best friend Lucy—who is willing to defend Solange’s right to a normal life, whether she’s being smothered by her well-intentioned brothers or abducted by a power-hungry queen. Two unlikely alliances are formed in a race to save Solange’s eternal life—Lucy and Solange’s brother Nicholas, and Solange and Kieran Black—in a dual romance that is guaranteed to jump start any romance-lover’s heart.


I thought it was a nice story. One thing that was new was the bestfriend (Lucy) had always new that Solange was to become a vampire and that the rest of her family were vampires or to become one too.  I liked that it was in both girls point of views, and that they both had a love interest.

I had also never heard of a human turning into a vampire on a certain birthday. In this case the 16th.
It was also nice to see the vampire getting caught and the human having to go and save the vampire, it was another thing that was new to me. I really liked this book. 4/5.

Perfect Chemistry Review

Perfect Chemistry

description from goodreads:
When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created “perfect” life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for—her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect. Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.

In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.


I first read this book in 2009 when it first came out, I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!! It was amazing, I liked all the characters and I enjoyed getting to know all of them. This book was told from two points of view (Brittany and Alex). I liked that a lot, i liked Alex and thought he was funny, I liked Brittany when I found about the person she really was. I have read this book many more times since!!!!!

I like love stories, I was drawn to the cover simply due to the fact that it looked like a love story, I really enjoyed reading Brittany and Alex falling in love, it was also a good story with a believable plot and it wasn't easy, but it worked in the end!!!!!! 5/5 LOVED IT!!!!

find out your book Valentine!!!! follow the link to find yours.

Mine was Daniel from the falllen series (ummmm.....ok) and Sam from the shiver bookseries (better)

Blue Moon Review

Blue Moon (The Immortals, #2)

Description from goodreads:

Eager to learn everything she can about her new abilities as an Immortal, Ever turns to her beloved Damen to show her the way. But just as her powers are increasing, Damen’s are waning.  In an attempt to save him, Ever travels to the magical dimension of Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen’s tortured past; a past which he has always kept hidden from her. But in her quest to cure Damen, Ever discovers an ancient text that details the workings of time. Now Ever must chose between turning back the past and saving her family from the accident that claimed their lives—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows sicker every day...

Well I wasn't exactly a fan of the first one, but I bought this one so I thought I better read it. It starts pretty much where it left off, Ever and Damon. Damon is teaching her all the cool tricks to being an immortal, and they are falling deeper in love.

When Damon becomes ill, Ever does just about everything to get the boy she fell in love with back. She explores Summerland and finds out about Damon's past.

This book was quite boring to me the Damon diappears for almost the whole book, then comes back and all is good, sounds familiar to me (New Moon). This book was not terrible, but I will not be continuing on with the series, 2/5

Evermore Review

Evermore (The Immortals, #1)

Description From goodreads:

Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch.   Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste…
Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition.  He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets.  Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head.  She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is.  Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.


The only thing that interested me at first about this book was her sister. It made me think about losing my sister and that was heart wrenching, I adore my sister. The cliche outcast meets hot new guy is getting old, but I was interested because of her sister. I also found it cool that she could see peoples auras.

Damon is the hot new guy, who of course goes and sits with the outcasts and thinks Ever is immediately attractive even though he doesn't know her, but he does. This book was nothing different, though because of the sister and the aura thing, so 3/5

Fallen Review

Fallen (Fallen, #1)
Description from goodreads:

There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.

Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.


Fallen started with Luce, about to go to a new school, a boarding school (my favorite), she is leaving behind her troubled past and entering a new one.

I immediately was drawn to this book for the gorgeous cover, the story was interesting as well. Things happened that I didn't expect to, like I did not know that Daniel was an angel or that darkness followed Lucy. I wouldn't of ended it the way she did, but I guess it left me wanting more, the key to selling books. 4/5

Hush Hush Review

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1)

For Description from goodreads:

For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.


I like that I never knew what was going to happen with the characters. I didn't know who to trust almost the whole time. This was my first Fallen Angel book, I have read this twice now.

I was expecting the same thing to happen that does in all other books like this (the girl, who is an outcast, ends up with a hot  stranger, they meet in biology class). Well this was a twist, it was like a mystery, things would happen, then ten seconds later there was no way to explain them, no damages done, only the ones she saw, or thought she did. This book, kept me guessing until the final scene. 4/5.

Across The Universe Review

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)
Description from goodreads
 A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder.
Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.
Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone-one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship-tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.
Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there's only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.
This book was amazing!!! I have never read anything like this before!!!

At first I thought I would stay away from this book, from the Title I thought it was based off the movie, but I quickly learned when I picked this up for a book club on here, it was very much unlike the movie.

I was hooked from page one, for one thing, what was happening seemed so impossible and life on GodSpeed was so different than it is here on Earth. There was no diversity (which I would hate), Everybody acted like a zombie, they had no personality, they did what they were told, there wasn't conflict between the people. It was very different.

When Amy awakens from being frozen, she is so much different than everybody. Her skin, her hair, her eyes, all so differnt than what the people are used to on GodSpeed. It causes a problem.

I really liked this book, it was amazing, and different, I cannot wait for the next one(I think theres one). 5/5
