Review : this book was a perfect Christmas read for me this book is about Julia and her grumpy neighbor to get this job Julia needs to write a popular blog so her best friend suggests that she kill him with kindness so up until Christmas she kills him with kindness until they start to get along and more than she though she actually likes the guy but then he finds out the blog and is hurt and mad and won't talk to her . she ends up inviting his grandfather over for Christmas dinner and he ends up having to go to the hospital so Julia comes along and they make up this book just is a perfect Christmas read.

quotes :

Kill him with kindness

He rarely allowed anyone to get close, and for good reason. It seemed every time he did, he regretted it.

“He took your newspaper; he didn’t threaten to bury you in concrete.”

Cain Maddox, you have a sense of humor.

Merry Christmas, Cain.” He held her gaze and then muttered, “Bah humbug.

Think you’re wrong about that,” Bernie said with a thoughtful look. “He’s attracted to you, but knowing my grandson, he’s fighting it tooth and nail

That boy hasn’t got a romantic bone in his body. He probably thought he was giving you a compliment.”

If he didn’t kiss her soon, she was going to reach for his lapels and jerk him close and do it herself. Just when she was about to stand on the tips of her toes and kiss him, Cain leaned down and captured her mouth. His kiss was exactly how she’d imagined. Her entire body swayed toward him and he wrapped his arms around her in a hold that half lifted her from the ground. Julia’s arms slipped around his neck as she gave herself over to him. The kiss was intense and deep: a mingling of passion, need, want, desire, and longing. It went on for what seemed like several moments. When they broke apart, they both swayed as if their entire world had made a shift…and for Julia it had. This was above and beyond anything she could ever have predicted. Cain pressed his forehead against hers. “I knew you’d taste like heaven.” His words felt like warm honey. “You’re going to be addictive, aren’t you?” he murmured. “I…I don’t know…maybe…I’d like it if I were.” With everything in her, she hoped what he said was true. “One taste will never be enough.” She grazed her lips over his in a near kiss, enjoying the freedom to tease him. His arms remained around her. Her own were tucked about his waist. “You still going to buy me coffee in the morning?” “My word is good.” “Mine, too.”

Congratulations, sweetheart.” Sweetheart? She froze, her breath trapped in her lungs. “Did you just call me sweetheart?” “Did I?

You get a puppy but want to wait on a baby?” Bernie shook his head. “You sure you know what you’re doing, boy?”

Book Review : Halloween with the Hunk Jewel Killian SPOILERS

Halloween with the Hunk: A Lumberjack Romance (Holiday Studs Book 1)Halloween with the Hunk: A Lumberjack Romance by Jewel Killian
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

October 26-27

What do you do when the lumberjack next door knocks on your door?

You let him the hell in!

There he stood in only jeans and work gloves--all bulging arms and chiseled abs.
I couldn't help but look, stare even. How could I not? He looked like he knew his way around the female body and I was aching to find out exactly how much he knew.

If she keeps looking at me like that I'll have her in every room, every way, all night AND all day. I'll show her my world of pleasure and dominance. I'll make her feel things she never thought possible. I'll make her scream so loud the neighbors will know my name.

Well, they already do. I was the former town playboy after all.

Review : This book was really cute and sexy I loved it Cassie she went away for the weekend to get work done but then she meets landon who is mostly a hot lumberjack and they hook up but when cassie wakes up without landon she thinks he just left her so she leaves but he likes her a lot and tracks down her friend and they go to the Halloween party where landon shows up and they talk and then they go to a interesting sex club . Landon has to go away for three months for work so they do a long distance relationship but then Landon comes back and it goes forward to the next Halloween and Landon proposes and they get married it was so cute .

Quotes :
Standing in the lawn between the two houses, illuminated only by my headlights, was a man in jeans and work gloves. Only jeans and work gloves

Well, Jeannie, I might just get to bang a lumberjack after all.

You know how sometimes you can feel eyes on you? That’s why I looked up. She stared so hard, so intently I could feel it. I met her eyes and I swear I don’t think I’ve ever been looked at like that before— like she wanted to eat me.

“Hi.” I barely got out the word before he rushed me, picking me up and kissing me like I’ve never been kissed before. I melted under him as he held my face and wedged me between the wall and his hips.

Landon growled at my words, probably the sexiest noise I’d ever heard in my whole life.

But I rode enough of him to make his gorgeous baby blues roll up in his head.

Book review Dumplin Julie Murphy SPOILERS

Dumplin' (Dumplin', #1)Dumplin' by Julie Murphy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

october 24-26
Self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson (dubbed “Dumplin’” by her former beauty queen mom) has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body. With her all-American beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked…until Will takes a job at Harpy’s, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn’t surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back.

Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant—along with several other unlikely candidates—to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any twiggy girl does. Along the way, she’ll shock the hell out of Clover City—and maybe herself most of all.

With starry Texas nights, red candy suckers, Dolly Parton songs, and a wildly unforgettable heroine—Dumplin’ is guaranteed to steal your heart.

Review : I really wanted to like this book it was okay but I had some problems with it , Will's mom she is so judgmental of her daughters weight I get being concerned but there is a way to do it . Will is a bigger girl and she likes this guy name Bo and they dated for like a summer and then she broke up with him and she decided to do this beauty queen thing and she yells at her friend and they have this stupid long ass fight which I didn't see a point for . Now I want to point out I didn't hate this book but I just didn't like it . Will and Bo start talking and there moments were really sweet .

Book Review : The upside of unrequited by Becky Albertalli SPOILERS

The Upside of UnrequitedThe Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

October 15- 23

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because no matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.

There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker Reid. He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?

Review : This book was so freaking cute I related to Molly so much in this book she's a curvy girl and she has anxiety . Molly has had 27 crushes but no boyfriends she has a twin sister and two mom's I wasn't a big fan of Molly's sister I thought she could be kinda a bitch . Molly ends up introducing Cassie to her future girlfriend and then mostly after Mina comes into the picture Cassie kinda drifts away from Molly and cassie wants Molly to date Mina's best friend Will and Molly doesn't think will has any interest in her and then there is Reid who is just so freaking adorable I shipped him and Molly like on first meeting they just click together and Molly starts to like Reid more than a friend and when her friend Olivia looks like she has some interest in Reid Molly freaks out and gets Mad at Reid and to make him jealous she hangs out with will who doesn't like her that way . The cool thing about this book is we got cameo's from Simon who I love and Abby is Molly's cousin . But Molly tells Reid how she feels which was so sweet and they kiss and next was there mom's wedding which was so sweet I loved this book . The one problem I had was the gradmother yes she use to to be big but insulting Molly like that wasn't cool .


I don’t entirely understand how anyone gets a boyfriend. Or a girlfriend. It just seems like the most impossible odds. You have to have a crush on the exact right person at the exact right moment. And they have to like you back. A perfect alignment of feelings and circumstances. It’s almost unfathomable that it happens as often as it does.”

There’s just something terrifying about admitting you like someone. In a way, it’s actually easier when there’s no chance of anything happening. But there’s this threshold where things suddenly become possible. And then your cards are on the table. And there you are, wanting, right out in the open.”

I'm on the toilet at the 9:30 Club and I'm wondering how mermaids pee.”

It's funny, because you always think the hard part is meeting someone the first time. It's not. It's the second time, because you've already used up all the obvious topics of conversation. And even if you haven't, it's strange and heavy-handed to introduce random conversational topics at this stage in the game. Hi, Reid. Let's converse about topics. HOW MANY SIBLINGS DO YOU HAVE? WHAT BOOKS DO YOU LIKE?”

Okay, I just gotta say it." The guy touches my arm. "You are fucking gorgeous for a big girl."
I freeze.
"It's a compliment!"
I look at him. "Fuck you.

I'm not trying to over think things. I'm trying to be less careful . but you have to be your hearts own goalie

Execpt - oh god- what if the machine announces it
CONDOMS! TWELVE ninety nine ! Please place your GIANT box of condoms in the bag . oh but your VALUE pack of condoms is too big for our sensors . Please wait, and someone will assist you shortly .

I'm just letting him know - she start typing that Olivia would be happy to get waxed if he's willing to wax his tiny , microscopic little peen at the same time ....

Book review : YOU Caroline Kepnes SPOILERS

YouYou by Caroline Kepnes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

September 29- October 11

When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.

This book was all kinds of fucked up but I really enjoyed it . This book is about Joe who becomes obsessed with a girl who came into the bookstore he works at he ends up stalking her and ends up taking the guy she's fucking hostage and eventually kills him . Beck and Joe are both terrible people Beck is very fake and her friend peach is totally obsessed with her . Joe and Beck end up dating and what I think is more creepy about this book it's not saying Beck it says YOU . Joe realizes peach is in his way and tries to kill her also and eventually does . Beck pulls away from Joe and Joe ends up seeing someone else but he's still obsessed with Beck but they end up getting back together but she finds out about everything all the creepy stuff of her's he was storing and he keeps her hostage in the bookstore in the basement and he ends up killing her this book was so fucked up .
Quotes :
The problem with books is that they end. They seduce you. They spread their legs to you and pull you inside. And you go deep and leave your possessions and your ties to the world at the door and you like it inside and you don't want for your possessions or your ties and then, the book evaporates.”

Review : I enjoyed the second book a lot Mal and Alina are on the run from the darkling but he finds them and are taken to a ship where we meet some interesting characters Toyla and Tamar and Stumhold who is one of my favorite characters of this series . Alina gets the second amplifier Stumhold helps Alina and Mal escape the darkling .

But the darkling is back and a lot of people die but she agrees to go with him and she tries to kill him but she almost dies but she doesn't I love this series and writing is very magical .
Quotes :
Watch yourself, Nikolai,” Mal said softly. “Princes bleed just like other men.”
Nikolai plucked an invisible piece of dust from his sleeve. “Yes,” he said. “They just do it in better clothes.”

The less you say, the more weight your words will carry.”

“Of course not," said Sturmhond. "Anything worth doing always starts as a bad idea.”

I took a breath. “Your highness—”
“Nikolai,” he corrected. “But I’ve also been known to answer to ‘sweetheart’ or ‘handsome.

“I have loved you all my life, Mal," I whispered through my tears. "There is no end to our story.”

And there's no way I'm leaving you alone with Prince Perfect."
"So you don't trust me to resist his charms?"
"I don't even trust myself. I've never seen anyone work a crowd the way he does. I'm pretty sure the rocks and trees are getting ready to swear fealty to him.”

“You heard Prince Perfect," Mal said, and joined us at the table. Nikolai grinned. "I've had a lot of nicknames, but that one is easily the most accurate.

Mal snickered.
"What's so funny?"
"I just pictured the Darkling being cornered by a sweaty duchess trying to have her way with him.”

“Promise not to kick me again, and I'll promise not to kiss you again," he said.
"I only kicked you because you kissed me!

“Scars made good reminders.”

You just punched a prince, Alina. I guess we can add one more act of treason to our list.”
I shook out my sore hand. My knuckles smarted. “First of all, are we so sure he really is a prince? And second, you’re just jealous.”
“Of course I’m jealous. I thought I was going to get to punch him. That isn’t the point.

So what did Jes say?' I asked again, when my brain felt a bit less scrambled.
'He said I should take good care of you.'
'That's all?'
Mal cleared his throat. 'And . . . he said he would pray to the God of Work to heal your affliction.'
'My what?'
'I many have told him that you have a goiter.'
I stumbled. 'I beg your pardon?'
'Well, I had to explain why you were always clinging to that scarf.'
I dropped my hand. I'd been doing it again without even realizing.
'So you told him I had a goiter?' I whispered incredulously.
'I had to say something. And it makes you quite a tragic figure. Pretty girl, giant growth, you know.'
I punched him hard in the arm.
'Ow! Hey, in some countries, goiters are considered very fashionable.'
'Do they like eunuchs, too? Because I can arrange that.'
'So bloodthirsty!'
'My goiter makes me cranky.”

Book review : Lingus Mariana Zapata SPOILERS

LingusLingus by Mariana Zapata
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

September 23-25

Most people would describe Katherine Berger as a responsible girl with a big heart, a loyal friend who takes care of those close to her, and the possessor of a wicked sense of humor. There was something about her that most people didn't know. "My name is Kat Berger, and I love porn."

When twenty-five-year-old Kat is dragged to a porn convention by her best friend, she's both embarrassed and nervous. The last thing she ever expected was to meet someone who makes her laugh like no other. This is a story about acceptance and friendship, and a love born out of the most unexpected of places

Review : I loved this book it was so funny and cute Kat is dragged to a porn convention by her friend Nikki and there she meets Tristan and they get along right away and then she finds out he's a porn star . Even though he's a porn star they do become fast friends Kat is very attracted to him and nurses him back to health when he got sick . Her friend Nikki is to busy getting busy with Tristan's friend Callum who is also a porn star . Every time Tristan leaves to do a video Kat feels sad and sick cause she really likes him but he said he won't have a girlfriend while doing porn. Kat is going to a wedding with Zoey's brother and Tristan is a bit Jealous as Kat can tell. Tristan text Kat that he got fired from one of his jobs . Kat helps Tristan pick out a dog he names it yoda very cute . Tristan is quiting porn and Kat goes on a date and when Kat comes home Tristan is there telling her that he can't stop thinking about her and they kiss awww. Tristan invites Kat to go to his last porn convention and then they go back to hotel and have sexy time . Nikki and Callum get married and a few months later Tristan asked Kat and she said yes yay loved this book .

I came face to chest with a very tall guy. I had to look up, and then farther up, up, and up to find the prettiest emerald eyes I'd ever seen looking right at me.

"Well, I'll be damned, she made Calum blush."

He was a porn star. He was a fucking porn star. Fuck my life.

Kat is Mack because she has a big front end and a big bumper." Josh motioned toward his non-existent pectoral muscles, where my breasts would be. "You're Anaconda because we all know that's what you have in your pants,"

so I opened up the one on the left first and froze. There were piles of extra-large and extra-extra-large condoms practically filling the entire drawer. Oh. My. Fuck.

He stopped at the foot of the bed, looking at me intently before a knowing, tired grin spread across his pale face. "You opened up the wrong drawer, didn't you?" I hated him.

"Kat?" "Yes?" He let out another yawn. "You're my favorite person in the world. Goodnight.

You really think I'm the hottest guy you've ever seen?"

and did my best to refrain from molesting his bubble butt when he bent over to retrieve the lasagna he made from the oven. "You were looking at my ass, weren't you?"

"You'll always be my favorite person in the world. Always."
