The Taking Goodreads Description:

A flash of white light . . . and then . . . nothing.

When sixteen-year-old Kyra Agnew wakes up behind a Dumpster at the Gas ’n’ Sip, she has no memory of how she got there. With a terrible headache and a major case of déjà vu, she heads home only to discover that five years have passed . . . yet she hasn’t aged a day.

Everything else about Kyra’s old life is different. Her parents are divorced, her boyfriend, Austin, is in college and dating her best friend, and her dad has changed from an uptight neat-freak to a drunken conspiracy theorist who blames her five-year disappearance on little green men.

Confused and lost, Kyra isn’t sure how to move forward unless she uncovers the truth. With Austin gone, she turns to Tyler, Austin’s annoying kid brother, who is now seventeen and who she has a sudden undeniable attraction to. As Tyler and Kyra retrace her steps from the fateful night of her disappearance, they discover strange phenomena that no one can explain, and they begin to wonder if Kyra’s father is not as crazy as he seems. There are others like her who have been taken . . . and returned. Kyra races to find an explanation and reclaim the life she once had, but what if the life she wants back is not her own?

Hmm….I’m not sure what exactly my feelings are for this book. I didn’t love it but I didn’t dislike it, it was one of those books that you just have meh feelings for. One thing I did love about this book was the cover….that thing is gorgeous. Just look at it!!

The characters, Kyra was one of those girls I didn’t like right away because there was something about her that made me wary. She seemed a little bit spoiled and at times and just a little better than you. This really kind of just fueled my dislike for her and even when she came back she was a bit better but I still didn’t love her. I love Tyler right away, he was super sweet and artistic and just all around adorable.

The story line was okay, but it definitely could have been improved in some parts because something about just didn’t grab my attention and hold it. There were parts that were good but just could have been elevated to that next level.

I would say just read the book and see what you think because it has so much potential and I hope the next one is better.

Sons of Anarchy

Standard

-7ce2bc3d-d727-4509-be12-e51d37b23204

IMDb Description:

A man in his early 30s struggles to find a balance in his life between being a new dad and his involvement in a motorcycle club.

This show…..is one of the most amazing things I’ve watched. Well, the most amazing, backstabbing, so much death, betrayal, and badass kind of show. It also drew me in from the start and had me swooning over the bad boy that was Jax Teller. Charlie Hunnam epitomized that bad boy to a T, he embodied that roll damn well, especially the swagger….he swagged it up. I will never use swagged again because it slightly makes me want to punch someone. I watched the first three seasons or so earlier this year but this summer I binged on the other three and I don’t regret it one bit.

First of all Charlie Hunnam is the one that drew me into this show because I’ve loved him ever since I watched Nicholas Nickleby and he plays Jax so well. He is also easily my favorite character in the show, to me he’s just so easy to like, he’s loyal, he’d do anything for his family and brothers, it’s pretty incredible to watch even if most of the time it may result in death or a beat down. There are so many other characters and I’m just going to say that my other favorites are Tig, because he is so weird and crazy, Chibs is amazing and Scottish and a lot of the time I have trouble understanding him, Robert is so cool and he’s pretty much the heart of the club, Opie I loved him because he was Burtier in Remember the Titans, and Chief Wayne was just a guy who wanted to do the right thing and keep people safe.

There was so much action in this show it was just mind boggling. There wasn’t an episode without someone getting punched, or shot, or hit with something. I have to say that it was pretty awesome and kind of fed my bloodthirsty side. Then there would be parts that would just make me have to stop and think or be like you wot mate?

There was just so much complexity to this show that makes it just so amazing and unlike other shows in this category. It’s just so unique and brings out your side that makes you want to go get in a fight but you don’t really want to do that because pain is not your friend.

Anywho this show is beyond glorious and I highly recommend it and want you to go watch it right now and catch up because the current season right now is the last one.
