Review: Numbers By Rachel Ward

Numbers by Rachel Ward: Book Cover


Ever since she was child, Jem has kept a secret: Whenever she meets someone new, no matter who, as soon as she looks into their eyes, a number pops into her head. That number is a date: the date they will die. Burdened with such awful awareness, Jem avoids relationships. Until she meets Spider, another outsider, and takes a chance. The two plan a trip to the city. But while waiting to ride the Eye ferris wheel, Jem is terrified to see that all the other tourists in line flash the same number. Today's number. Today's date. Terrorists are going to attack London. Jem's world is about to explode!

Book details:

Format: Hardcover
Pages: 325
Publisher:Scholastic, Inc. ; Chicken House


To start off I must say that after reading the synopsis of
this book I wanted to read it so bad.
To know the date of others people deaths would drive me crazy. I probably would be going around
trying to save everyone, even though we all die
eventually. Numbers started off slow and at times it
would pick back up. We meet the characters of Jem and
Spider and the people they are connected to.
Jem is someone who avoids getting to know others for
fear that she will lose them. She has had a tough
life. Spider is the complete opposite of Jem. He is a risk taker
and I would say tries to enjoy life
to the fullest. In the book Jem and Spider find themselves
in a situation where they feel like they
have to run away in order to start fresh with new lives. The cops are after them and so they begin a
journey together. Throughout the novel I felt like I was
apart of their flee. Although their were sometimes
where I thought are you kidding me? Is this even
necessary? That is so gross!
There were some disturbing parts. I found myself
struggling to finish this book. I'm glad I did though.
This book had a good message to send out to readers.
I found myself holding back tears. If you told
me this when I was half way through I wouldn't have
believed you. Overall this is a good book and
I suggest you read it sometime.

3.5 stars.

Hey guys! I've been totally missing posting on my blog. But this week I got my new laptop. So worth the wait. But unfortunately its a little slow loading some pages. Takes about ten whole minutes just to load a page. Gosh, truly tests my patience. :) While I was gone too my blog was featured in an article check it! There are a ton of great blogs in the article.

Here is the link you know what to do ;)

Also I would like to announce that Kieran Scott's new book She's So Dead to Us hits shelves Tuesday. On Barnes and Noble it is not a pre-order anymore. Go buy this book. Even though I have yet to read it, it's a guarantee that this book will be great. I'm so excited to read this book!

Update (2) and Contest!

Hey everyone,
As you all could tell I have not been updating as much. I appologize, my laptop will not hold its charge anymore and only has twenty minutes of life. So I've been having to get on my family's computer and even that is broken and I have to get on safe mode just to get online. I dislike safe mode too because I can't have audio. Blah. I'm having to wait till Graduation for my new laptop. Once I get my laptop I'll post more reviews.

Thanks everyone for being patient with me.
