Daring You to Read (16)..... Rise of Renegade X & Let It Snow

Daring You To Read is a brand new meme by Tynga's Reviews. Is where you choose a book you’ve read, loved and would dare your readers to read! The book you choose must be an older release (at least 6 months ago), because let’s be honest, we’re all quite aware of the latest releases.

Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea Campbell
Publication Date: May 11, 2010
Genre: Ya Fantasy
Pages: 352


Sixteen-year-old Damien Locke has a plan: major in messing with people at the local supervillain university and become a professional evil genius, just like his supervillain mom. But when he discovers the shameful secret she's been hiding all these years, that the one-night stand that spawned him was actually with a superhero, everything gets messed up. His father's too moral for his own good, so when he finds out Damien exists, he actually wants him to come live with him and his goody-goody superhero family. Damien gets shipped off to stay with them in their suburban hellhole, and he has only six weeks to prove he's not a hero in any way, or else he's stuck living with them for the rest of his life, or until he turns eighteen, whichever comes first.

I completely love this book. The characters were great. The main character, Damien, is awesome. He is funny, lovable, and a diabolical prankster. And the plot of the book is great. Having Damien trying to prove he wasn't a hero is fun. Truthfully, I was really hoping he would be a villain.

I recently  found out there's going to be a second one coming out in May. So, I'm definitely going to get. In the meantime, I'm daring you to read the first one.

Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle
Publication Date: September 11th 2008
Genre: YA Romance
Pages: 352


Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow. A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.

This is one heartwarming book that'll have any hopeless romantic swooning. I loved all three stories but personally my favorite would have to be the second story written by John Green. 

The relationship we hope to come is sweet and cute. Just teenagers being teenagers, loved the humor and c'mon, they're riding a twister board down a snowy hill. How cool is that! I mean all the crazy stunts they do just to go see a bunch of cheerleaders stuck in a coffee shop equals a great story line.

Overall, it's just plain fun, great reading material any time of the year and I dare you guys to read it......<3
