Brothers By The Black keys

The_Black_Keys_-_BrothersFavourite Lyrics:

1. I got a tortured mind
And my blade is sharp
A bad combination in the dark
If I kill a man in the first degree
Baby would you flee with me?

A sinister kid is a kid who runs to meet his maker
A drop that spreads from the day he’s born
Straight into his maker’s arms
That’s me, that’s me
The boy with the broken halo
That’s me, that’s me
The devil won’t let me be

(Lyrics from Sinister Kid)

2. She was made to blow you away She don’t care what any man say Well, you can watch her strut But keep your mouth shut Or it’s ruination day
(Lyrics from She’s Long Gone)

Indigo By Never Shout Never

UtCO9 Favourite Lyrics:

1.I’ve been caught at the scene of the crime.
I’m in love with a woman,
But the woman’s not mine.

She’s tied the knot with an acquaintance.
I’m doing my best to be patient.

I wrote her a song but she wasn’t impressed.
She’s nonchalant but she’s so well dressed.

(Lyrics from Sorry)

 

Carousel By Her & Gold

1. Don’t be shy, I’ve got time.

(Lyrics from Happy)

2. Adolescents learning lessons in growing up
We never looked behind us to see how much we fucked up
We lost our heads instead
(Lyrics from Carousel)

3. Bright eyes to the sky
Brave enough to fly
Fear can’t find you if there’s love inside
(lyrics from Take The Lead)

The_Black_Keys_-_BrothersBrothers By The Black Keys

Record Label: Nonesuch Records

Genre: Rock

Release Date: May 18, 2010

Songs: 15
Brothers (Deluxe Version) - The Black Keys

The Black Keys is an American rock band formed in Akron, Ohio in 2001. The group consists of Dan Auerbach (guitar, vocals) and Patrick Carney (drums). The group began as an independent act founded after the duo dropped out of college, and they eventually emerged among a second wave of popular garage rock revival artists from the 2000s. Currently, The Black Keys have released seven albums- The Big Come Up, Theakfreakness, Rubber Factory, Magic Potion, Attack & Release, Brothers, and El Camino.

(My Opinion)

I don’t care if you’re a hardcore hip hop/whatever you are into lover. The Black Keys is a band for everyone. With beats that just make you want to dance and act like a bad ass how can you not enjoy their music?

I can truly say that there is nothing that I dislike about this album.

Every song starts off with an awesome instrumental intro followed by the band’s easy-going tunes and vocals. Speaking of vocals,  Dan Auerbach’s singing is very smooth and welcoming by not only low and deep notes but also singing very high notes.His voice sounds like a lullaby that draws you in on a cold night. I really like that all of the songs tell an actual story about past romances and futures one, like, Too Afraid To Love You and Next Girl,  family, for example, Unknown Brother and life, Sinister Kid and These Days. These songs, like every other song on this album has catchy, memorable lyrics that even if you’ve heard them once, you would know which song from which. Even though all the songs on brothers has the same song structure, the different instruments used like the harmonica, tambourine, and big drums help to distinguish each song.

I recommend this album to everyone. it appeals to everyone, especially to rock, pop, indie, and blues fans. Even if you don’t enjoy this kind of music, I strongly recommend that you give it a try. From the album, Brothers, my favourite songs are- Tighten Up, Sinister Kid, She’s Long Gone, and Howlin’ For You.

3.7/5-I wanted to dislike this book. But I couldn’t because  Corrine Jackson did a clever job disguising the romance in this story with the military. Still, half of the book I was wondering why I was reading this book and the other half and I was gasping/squealing at whatever Quinn was doing.

(Summary from Goodreads)

Quinn’s done the unthinkable: she kissed a guy who is not Carey, her boyfriend. And she got caught. Being branded a cheater would be bad enough, but Quinn is deemed a traitor, and shunned by all of her friends. Because Carey’s not just any guy—he’s serving in Afghanistan and revered by everyone in their small, military town.

Quinn could clear her name, but that would mean revealing secrets that she’s vowed to keep—secrets that aren’t hers to share. And when Carey goes MIA, Quinn must decide how far she’ll go to protect her boyfriend…and her promise.

(My Opinion)

Told from Quinn’s perspective, a story about cheating, heartbreak and how judgemental people really can be without knowing the whole story. The idea for this story wasn’t the greatest, it was a bit sloppy and repetitive of the same things over and over again. Some of the characters were well written and stood out to me while others were mucky and unclear. It felt like Corrine Jackson didn’t know what to write about for half of the characters’ so she barely wrote anything at all.

The romance in this story almost killed me. If it was any other guy that Quinn decided to fuck, I would have been happy. But no, Corrine Jackson wanted her to fuck one specific person which was annoying because it is the same person in a lot of books now a days. It was typical and annoying. There was a lot of repetition in this story, after a few chapters, I started to get annoyed at how much she kept saying she had to keep Carey’s secret, or how her life sucked and she had to keep Carey’s secret because she promised him. It got annoying very quickly for me. Most of the book was boring with the bitchy girls doing rude things to Quinn and making her feel like a slut. I wished Corrine Jackson stayed away from that romance and made the girls meaner and tougher in a few ways because from how Quinn reacted, I thought they were throwing around death threats and stuff like that.

If I Lie is a typical idea cloaked in war. That was one of my favourite things about this story because I actually laughed once I realized what kind of book I was reading. I liked that the chapters were short and sort of easy to swallow. George was my favourite character because he was different and wise and such a great person. I was always happy reading any part that George was in. Thank God he was included in this story. The ending was also pretty good because I was expecting her to go with one guy but she shocked me and went the unthinkable way.

The ending made gave me hope that it didn’t have to be such a typical story after all. Even though it wasn’t a book I entirely enjoyed, If I Lie is a good book for something to read on a rainy day. It’s also a good read for anyone who loves love triangles and full of marine/war things.

4.7/5-It took me over a month to finish this book not because it was slow, boring, or uncreative, but because I couldn’t bring myself to finish the last few chapters I had left. I honestly didn’t want this book to end. The book made me so angry at times, yet still made me laugh a lot and cry too.

(Summary from Goodreads)

Sixteen-Year-Old Jace Witherspoon arrives at the doorstep of his estranged brother Christian with a re-landscaped face (courtesy of his father’s fist), $3.84, and a secret. He tries to move on, going for new friends, a new school, and a new job, but all his changes can’t make him forget what he left behind—his mother, who is still trapped with his dad, and his ex-girlfriend, who is keeping his secret. At least so far.

Worst of all, Jace realizes that if he really wants to move forward, he may first have to do what scares him most: He may have to go back. First-time novelist Swati Avasthi has created a riveting and remarkably nuanced portrait of what happens after. After you’ve said enough, after you’ve run, after you’ve made the split—how do you begin to live again?

(My Opinion)

This book was amazing, most of the characters flew off of the pages because they were so  funny and creative. Well-written without too much description or explanation in the first few chapters that it was a quick and easy read. A very moving tale about abuse where we learn the different sides to his family. The idea for this novel was executed almost perfectly with a good amount of flashbacks and touching moments.

Almost perfect in my eyes. There are a lot of books that I wished were tweaked a bit better or were a bit clearer on some parts so that I could put it up in my “Forever love and cherish” book pile. Swati Avasthi’s Debut novel could have been clearer on a few of the secondary characters. I wished she made Jace’s ex-girlfriend clearer and more history about his best friend.

Such an emotional book! I just couldn’t bring myself to finish it for the longest time because I didn’t want Jace’s adventure to end. I loved how his brother, Christian acted towards Jace near the ending because it surprised me, I thought Christian would have reacted differently. Also, the flashbacks about Jace;s old life and what he liked about it and what he despised because most of them were about his father. In this book, I loved how the relationships between Jace’s brother and his new friends weren’t too fast and they were very unpredictable while the slowly blooming romance was in fact that. Slowly blooming. Holy crap, the writing style was what I loved from authors. It was so easy to read that, the words flew off the page and I couldn’t remember if the book was past or present tense because I was so caught up in the story of Jace.

An amazing novel about getting over the past and fighting to not become the monster you’ve known all your life. A total must read for everyone. Swati Avasthi’s next novel will probably be a smash hit if its anything similar to Split.

The Things A Brother Knows By Dana Reinhardt

3.8/5-Not a bad book but not the greatest either. It was funny at times and intense at others. The relationship between Levi and Boaz is complexed yet interesting all the same.

(Summary from Goodreads)

Finally, Levi Katznelson’s older brother, Boaz, has returned. Boaz was a high school star who had it all and gave it up to serve in a war Levi can’t understand. Things have been on hold since Boaz left. With the help of his two best friends Levi has fumbled his way through high school, weary of his role as little brother to the hero.

But when Boaz walks through the front door after his tour of duty is over, Levi knows there’s something wrong. Boaz is home, safe. But Levi knows that his brother is not the same.

Maybe things will never return to normal. Then Boaz leaves again, and this time Levi follows him, determined to understand who his brother was, who he has become, and how to bring him home again.

(My Opinion)

The story is told from Levi’s perspective while the two brothers go on a walking trip through the US and how their wounded relationship somehow heals. Some of the characters were typical and boring while others, like Dov, were fun to read about.

The Things A Brother Knows was pretty tough to get into and then hard to connect with the characters. The writing was another issue for me because it was slow and felt like Dana Reinhardt was trying to fit so much meaning and emotion into every paragraph.

Dov was one of my favourite characters that I liked a lot because of the way he was always teasing Levi about his hair while still serious and meaningful when Levi needed him to be. Also, the way Boaz reacted to everything around him once he got home. I loved how scared and vulnerable Boaz was at some parts and how Levi helped him get through it because well…That’s what family is supposed to do.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes YA books that evolve around war and the relationship between family members and how hard it is to get the relationship you used to have with them back.

Split By Swati Avasthi
