Bet Your Life (Jess Tennant 2) by Jane Casey – FictionFan's Book Reviews
Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning. Where do her loyalties lie? Posted by Patrick Castro at AM 3 comments. Labels: Waiting on Wednesday. Tuesday, March 24, Insurgent Movie! Insurgent was hands down one of the best movies I watched this year! It was much more action packed and thrilling compared to the first movie. Here's the trailer, if you have not watch it yet?
As a fan of the books, I did feel like the relationship between Tris and Four in the movie was done really well. While there was some golden scenes between the two, it lacked more of Tris's rebellious spirit in the aftermath of Divergent. Also, I did like how the movie showed more intimate scenes between the two.
Overall, Insurgent was an amazing and mind-blowing movie. It's definitely a movie you have to see yourself to watch to experience how amazing it is. Definitely watch it with friends or family soon, you will not regret it! Labels: Movies.

Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara's beautiful face scarred and the two sisters totally estranged. When Dara vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl, nine-year-old Madeline Snow, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances are linked.
Now Nick has to find her sister, before it's too late. In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other. Read it with all the lights on. Vanishing Girls was hands down one of the most poignant and powerful books I read year.
I'm still blown away honestly. Sisters, Nick and Dara, used to be so close to each other until Dara vanishes on her birthday. Nick thinks Dara is playing with her, but when Madeline Snow also vanishes, she knows something serious is going on. Oliver was able to effortlessly bring in suspenseful elements along with loss and love that ultimately created an amazing book. Nick and Dara were really intriguing right off the bat. The book was divided between the two sisters and the past and present. It may have gotten confusing at times, but I was actually able to distinguish the two.
I really bonded with Nick while reading, because she had a strong perseverance not to give up to find Dara. She goes through so much trying to find out what really happens to Dara, you could easily feel all the emotions she went through. Dara on the other hand, was a big mess for me. She needed to get her whole act straightened out and needed to stop playing games. I kinda felt a "Boy Who Cried Wolf" vibe from her because she would start these games and end up safe and normal.
Oliver created such dynamic characters that really contrasted with each other that worked well. I loooveed the suspense part of the novel.
