Review: The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter

I thought this book was AWESOME!!! It is one of my favorite Greek mythology books. I practically finished it in one day:) My expectations were really high, and Carter did it beautifully and exceeded beyond it. I have always loved talking about Greek Gods and Goddess, its one of those cool subjects in history.

From beginning to end you have to root for Kate to pass those 7 tests throughout the entire novel. The ending was really good and some of the scenes were surprising, I was in shock! But with that ending it was amazing. I loved the part where Henry gives Kate a dog (Pogo) because that scene was sooo cute, and also when they kiss for the first time!

Kate was an easier character to like because she was a normal teenager, but she focused on her mother because she was dying, waiting for her to pass. But Kate is handed a somewhat miracle of meeting Henry when he saves Kate's friend Ava. Henry is Hades, but in The Goddess Test he is the perfect gentlemen, who would protect Kate. The fact that they both fall in love with each other was really cute in the matter of 6 months for the rest of her life. I actually loved the book, and its unique way of relating it to today's lifestyle.

I will give this book 4.5 stars, plus Aimee Carter is awesome, I recommend you read this book!.I can't wait until the sequel to this book called Goddess Interrupted:)

Next book I will be reading/reviewing is Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. Keep a look out for this review and many more to come!! next one with gods and goddess:)

Waiting on Wednesday (4)

Canada Day Blog Hop- June 29-July 2

To celebrate Canada Day I am participating in the Canada Day Blop Hop created by Aislynn at Knit, Purl, Stitch, Read & Cook and Chrystal at Snowdrop Dreams of Books. Each blog participating is posting a Canada-themed post and giveaway from June 29th to July 2nd. The best part? All giveaways are open to Canadians!

 When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her to the case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own--scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving "the life" for a normal life proves harder than she'd expected.

Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring her back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has good reason: a powerful mobster's art collection has been stolen, and he wants it returned. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat's dad needs her help.

For Kat there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family's (very crooked) history--and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.

Giveaway #2 

It's always been just Kate and her mom—and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld—and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy—until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.
