upside down


Sometimes I have to stand on my head to see things as they are, when the world seems so upside-down that this is the only position in which anything makes sense.

And when the world turns upside down, it’s nice to have someone upside down with you.

Life takes your dreams and turns them upside down; friends talk about you when you’re not around. People make promises they just can`t keep, and I’ve come to realize that talk is cheap. Too often we don’t realize what we have until its gone. Too often we wait to long to say “I`m sorry. I was wrong” sometimes it seems we hurt the ones we hold dearest to our hearts & we allow foolish things to tear our lives apart.

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money…

Into You

Title: Into You

Author: Riley J. Ford

Kindle Edition, 253 pages

Published July 2nd 2012

What if you could know exactly what your friends are thinking? High school student Winter Reynolds can, but there’s a catch…
She can only read people’s thoughts when she’s kissing them.
When a member of the track team is murdered, Winter has an opportunity to use her special ability to find the killer. Trouble is, kissing everyone on the track team isn’t such a good idea when you have a new boyfriend. Talk about complications!
Should Winter persevere using her secret power to catch the murderer still in their midst, even if it means risking her relationship with her one true love?
Disclaimer: Mild profanity and a graphic murder scene. While humorous, this book also explores the underbelly of teen life. May not be suitable for younger teens.

Truly a fantastic read!

Before I babble and squeal, let me tell you something about the author. Miss Riley J. Ford is awesome! This is the second Ford book I’ve read and as usual, she has impressed me with her talent in storytelling.

Into You introduces us to Winter Reynolds, who, for the very first time, had kissed a boy and had discovered that she can read his mind when he touched his lips with hers. At first, she thought, Ethan just whispered out loud, but the second time, she really heard Ethan’s not so romantic thoughts on her. He even had the nerve to call her a “ho”!!

With this revelation, Winter’s normal life took on a huge turn. She couldn’t tell her mom how this happened, but she was glad she had Miranda whom she could count on.  But when her so-called friend asked her to kiss a boy, Winter soon realized that her friend might be using her to know if the boy actually liked Miranda.

A new girl and a boy from Winter’s past came to town and soon her life turned upside down. A murder took place and she decided to use her new ability to track down the murderer. Could she really kiss every boy in her school just to get into the mind of the criminal? My oh my, oh my.

This is an engrossing read. It really didn’t have any dull moment nor boring escapade. The setting was fast-paced and well executed.

I could easily relate with Winter and couldn’t help but agree with her decisions in handling her powers. It’s good that she has a good head on her shoulders and believes that with great power comes with great responsibility. Something that her bestfriend should have had in the beginning. While I may be over thirty years old, (yeah, i’m not that young anymore), I could still see myself in her when I was in my teens, daydreaming about the cutest boy in school. I think I may have a crush on Jason Stumblemeyer right now. ha-ha!

Into You is highly recommended to teens and young & new adults alike. Satisfaction guaranteed! My rating for this Riley J. Ford great piece of work: 4 bookmarks!

I actually enjoyed every kissing moment of it.. Seriously 🙂
