The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp

 Title: ThSpectacular Now

 Author: Tim Tharp

 Publisher: Ember

 Date Published: July 9th, 2013

 Genre: Conteporary

 Pages: 304 (Paperback)

 Age Range: 16+


     SUTTER KEELY. HE’S the guy you want at your party. He’ll get everyone dancing. He’ ll get everyone in your parents’ pool. Okay, so he’s not exactly a shining academic star. He has no plans for college and will probably end up folding men’s shirts for a living. But there are plenty of ladies in town, and with the help of Dean Martin and Seagram’s V.O., life’s pretty fabuloso, actually.

Until the morning he wakes up on a random front lawn, and he meets Aimee. Aimee’s clueless. Aimee is a social disaster. Aimee needs help, and it’s up to the Sutterman to show Aimee a splendiferous time and then let her go forth and prosper. But Aimee’s not like other girls, and before long he’s in way over his head. For the first time in his life, he has the power to make a difference in someone else’s life—or ruin it forever.


     There are very few books that I read where I need a few more chapters, or at least an epilogue if not another entire book. The Spectacular Now is one of those rare little gems. It was very real, raw, and poignant- a painful read about a subject that really shouldn't be so painful to read about. So few books make me cry, and shake my fist, and pull out my hair, and cry some more, but the Spectacular Now made me do all of those things.
     First, the characters were incredibly flawed. Sutter Keely really is a good guy at heart, but he is a terrible alcoholic. I have never read a book that had so much alcohol in it before. Now the thing is, in YA, alcohol is usually presented at parties and in kegs. In the book, the alcohol was a very main element. Usually alcohol is portrayed in a negative light, girls get drunk and go off with strange men, boys trash the house and say things they shouldn't have. Through this all, alcohol is portrayed as a bad thing while it truly isn't. The people abusing the alcohol are the real problems,and this book kind of gently delves to the root of that.
     Amy is introduced as Sutter's opposite, and she never really stops being his opposite. He's a fun-loving guy, knows everyone, wants to a lot of people, etc. But Amy is much more reserved and quiet. It was fun to watch Sutter pry apart Amy's shell and watch her really come into her own. She was a girl that everyone can relate to,and I liked her character a lot.
     Now, as the book progresses, Amy falls into a downward spiral. She spins from being this straight-laced, uptight girl, to letting loose way too much. I really liked Sutter's character, but his character pulled Amy to be more like him in his attempt to help her. Then, he realized what he had done, and that miserable excuse for an ending came by.
     This book actually made me hurt in many ways. I hurt for Amy and Sutter's positions at first, and then I really did feel for Sutter. When he lost his job, my heart broke into a million pieces, and the ending made me cry a little bit. I loved the openness of the ending, and the overall feel because it just fit with the book, but I didn't like how everything wasn't perfectly resolved.
     I really wanted this book to end with a happily ever after (that doesn't happen too often), but instead I was left with an ending that made my heart hurt, and my eyes leak. I would definitely read this again, and since the movie has Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller, I will be watching it very soon!

Allegiant Trailer

   The first trailer for Allegiant has been released!

 So I haven't read the book because everyone I've talked to that has, encouraged me not to. They all said the same thing--that Veronica Roth got sloppy and just threw this book together without giving it much thought. After watching the trailer, I can kind of see the sloppiness. Though, this won't stop me from watching the movie. I don't think I'll finish reading the series but I would like to finish it by watching the movies.

Life and Death by Stephenie Meyer

     Slight disclaimer: This is not a review. This is a snarky rant. I have not read the book, and this is much more of a discussion topic, or, depending on how you look at it, a place for me to whine. There shouldn't be any spoilers, or things like that because I haven't read the book; this should be safe for everyone to read, if they so desire. That being said, I will be complaining about, and possibly critiquing, Stephenie Meyer and her books. If that is something that you cannot handle, or just don't want to read, please keep scrolling- there are lots of other book reviews on this website to enjoy! However, if you'd like to read this little spiel, please go right ahead.

     It has happened. Honestly, I always said that Stephenie Meyer was not done with the Twilight universe, and I have finally been proven correct yet again. I do not dislike Stephanie Meyer. I don't love her, but I also don't have any problems with her. My issue with Stephanie Meyer is what she writes- over and over again. First off, Stephenie Meyer has been riding on Twilight's success for around a decade now. She has four books in the Twilight series, a companion novel for Bree Tanner, this new gender-swapped copy, a new Twilight book in the works (a book from Edward's view, hopefully she'll finish it), and one other sci-fi book- The Host- that was supposed to be trilogy, but she never completed because she didn't want to kill people off (what excuses are these?).


     Stephenie Meyer is not a bad person for writing only Twilight books, okay? She just isn't. It's a successful series, people keep demanding more, and so she delivers. But I'm not really okay with the fact that she only writes these books. It's different for someone like Cassandra Clare. Cassandra Clare has written a lot of books with a lot of different characters, in different worlds, in different times. Honestly, Cassandra Clare has created such a broad world that she could write only in the Shadowhunter world forever and never get boring. Stephenie Meyer, on the other hand, has created a supremely narrow world. She has created only a few characters for us to read about, and her world is a narrow modern-day city in the middle of a rainy state- not much to go off of.
     I think if Stephenie Meyer actually finished anything that she committed to, it would be a different story. The Host is book one in a trilogy. A TRILOGY. Book Number 2- The Seeker- was supposed to be published in 2012. Guess what year it is? Certainly not 2012! In fact, many people have resigned themselves to the fact that The Host Trilogy will never be completed. Now, I'm sure you're thinking, "Stephenie Meyer must have a good reason! Authors wouldn't leave us hanging like that, right?" WRONG! Stephenie Meyer has stated that she is afraid to finish the book because she will have to kill off characters and doesn't want to deal with the negative criticism of that. WHAT THE HECK?
     When people begin writing books, they make a commitment to carry things out to fruition- to complete the danged series. I would feel differently if Stephenie Meyer was a brand-new author who had never dealt with criticism ever before, but Twilight is one of the most controversial books on the globe! Stephenie Meyer has dealt with her fair share of negative criticism and this excuse not to finish her series really angers me. Not because I want to read the book, but because she should finish what she said she would start. It's just cruel to leave so many people hanging. And don't get me started on the whole Midnight Sun fiasco.
     I don't hate Stephenie Meyer, but I'm tired of her. She needs to finish what she started, and start writing something new.
