Book review - Holly and her naughty Ereader by Julianne Spencer


Holly and Her Naughty eReaderHolly and Her Naughty eReader by Julianne Spencer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

read  from   January  26- 29


Summary  -
What if all those brooding teenage vampires, hunky 19th-century aristocrats, and gorgeous dominating billionaires on your Kindle came to life as real people?

Holly Pritchett is a high school English teacher by day, and avid reader by night. Romance, erotica, sci-fi, horror, and more, Holly's Kindle is packed with thousands of titles and she reads a new novel every day.

But when she returns to her hometown for her 10-year reunion and meets up with an old friend who dabbles in witchcraft, Holly's Kindle becomes much more than an eReader. No longer a passive observer to the many stories from the Amazon store, Holly becomes an active participant in the books on her Kindle, living the experiences of the characters.

That hot billionaire with a troubled past? Now it's Holly who's donning the leather and lace so he can teach her how to live. That beautiful werewolf with the heart of gold? Now Holly is the one who will help him find his true self.

For Holly, life with a magic eReader is a dream come true, until one domineering billionaire takes too keen an interest in her, and the fantasies on her Kindle start spilling over into reality.

Part romance, part adventure, and part satire of literary culture in a digital age, Holly and Her Naughty eReader is a novel for anyone who ever got so lost in a good book they forgot where reality ended and fantasy began.

 Review  - Holly  was not  looking  forward  to  going  home   to her  high school  reunion    she  was  afraid  she   would see  her  high school  crush   Max    who stood her  up   when  she  was  18  and  worst of  all  she  dropped her  kindle   and  it  broke     Holly  loves her  kindle    and   after  one  night  with  her  friend    she  cast  some   kind  of  spell    and  her  kindle is    on  again  except  it's   different  this  time   she  is  the  character in  the  story   she  thinks  she's loosing her  mind  cause of  what  vivian   did   now  she  can   be  with  hot  guys  in  books  in  many  different   ways    but then  something  happens   a  wall  was  broke  between  our  world and  the book world   one of  the  characters has  escaped  and  is  in  Max's  body    who  Holly has been  spending  allot of time with  since vivian  disappeared  with her kindle  witch she  didn't  christoph   took it   he's  inside  max       she'  gets him  back  everyone is  safe and she  goes   back  home  and then Holly  receives   a  text that   bring  back  memories of  when  she  was  18   and  Holly  finds out some  things  that  were in the past  I loved  this  book    I got  it  for  free  so I didn't think it would be  anything special  but you've got to read it
18 +  



favorite  quote  -  The  words   on the   page  are nothing  but  ink.  Lines  and  curves   and  dots   oranized  in  a  most  peculiar  fashion   .  it's  not until  you read  them  that   they  become  something more  . it is    you who  gives them life   the   characters of  the  book  are only  alive   when   a reader makes  them  so.

What's on my Hold list

Not even death can save her now. As a grave witch, Alex Craft can speak to the dead-she's even on good terms with Death himself. As a consultant for the police, she's seen a lot of dark magic, but nothing has prepared her for her latest case. When she's raising a "shade" involved in a high profile murder, it attacks her, and then someone makes an attempt on her life. Someone really doesn't want her to know what the dead have to say, and she'll have to work with mysterious homicide detective Falin Andrews to figure out why...






 Eleanor & Park reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love with a girl, but also what it's like to be young and in love with a book."--John Green, The New York Times Book Review Bono met his wife in high school , Park says. So did Jerry Lee Lewis , Eleanor answers. I'm not kidding , he says. You should be , she says,nbsp; we're 16 . What about Romeo and Juliet? Shallow, confused, then dead. I love you ,nbsp;Park says. Wherefore art thou,nbsp; Eleanor answers. I'm not kidding, nbsp;he says. You should be. Set over the course of one school year in 1986,nbsp;this is the story of two star-crossed misfits--smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you'll remember your own first love--and just how hard it pulled you under.


When she was seven, a horrific fey attack killed Donna Underwood's father and drove her mother mad. Her own nearly fatal injuries were fixed by alchemy--the iron tattoos branding her hands and arms. Now seventeen, Donna feels like a freak, doomed by the magical heritage that destroyed her parents and any chance she had for a normal life. Only her relationship with her best friend, Navin, is keeping her sane. But when vicious wood elves abduct Navin, Donna is forced to accept her role in the centuries-old war between human alchemists and these darkest outcasts of Faerie. Assisted by Xan, a gorgeous guy with faery blood running through his veins and secrets of his own, Donna races to save Navin--even if it means betraying everything her parents fought to the death to protect. Praise: "Dark and beautiful, sensual and dangerous, utterly enthralling. . . You'll fall under this book's spell."--Richelle Mead, New York Times bestselling author "Mahoney's debut sizzles with romance and alchemical swashbuckling. . . A captivating read." --Tiffany Trent, author of In the Serpent's Coils

Book review - Wake Lisa McMann


Wake (Dream Catcher, #1)Wake by Lisa McMann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

read  January   07  -  19

Sumarry -
For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie's seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.
She can't tell anybody about what she does they'd never believe her, or worse, they'd think she's a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn't want and can’t control.
Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She is a participant.





This review contains spoilers !




Review-
Janie is not like everyone she has other peoples dreams she doesn't know when it happens but it does Janie just wants to to be normal and not have other peoples dreams and nightmares and then there is cable she has his dream allot him and Janie get close but when she tells him about what she can do he is gone allot and selling drugs supposedly  and hooking up with a cheerleader supposedly okay so cable is working with the police to bust a drugdeal  I really loved this book Janie finds allot more about the dream thing when an old lady dies  and starts helping her control her dreams loved it .


Quote
That was my goth stage where I decided I'd never get the girl of my dreams  because of my scars. Not to mention the hairstyle . But then she slammed a door handle into my gut. And when a girl does that to a boy, it means she likes him.

book review - how to be alone by Tanya Davis

How to Be AloneHow to Be Alone by Tanya Davis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

read   January  9th  -   January  9th  




A charming and deeply poignant illustrated poem based on the popular viral Internet video that has captured the hearts of millions worldwide

If you are, at first, lonely be patient. If you've not been alone much or if, when you were, you weren't okay with it then just wait...

Since its debut on YouTube, Tanya Davis's beautiful and perceptive poem, How to Be Alone, visually realized by artist and filmmaker Andrea Dorfman, has become an international sensation. Her wise and perceptive words, vivid in their evocation of solitude's beauty and calm, have touched millions. Now her poem's deep eloquence and compelling illustrations have been adapted for the page in this beautiful, meditative volume, a keepsake to treasure and to share.

From a solitary walk in the woods to sitting unaccompanied on a city park bench to eating a meal and even dancing alone, Tanya reveals the possibilities and joys waiting to be discovered when we engage in activities on our own. As she soothes the disquietude that accompanies the fear of aloneness, and celebrates the power of solitude to change how we see ourselves and the world, Tanya reavels how, removed from the noise and distractions of other lives, we can find acceptance and grace within.

For those who have never been by themselves and those who feel lost or lonely on their own, this moving work encourages us to recognize and embrace the possibilities of being alone-and reminds us of a universe of joy, peace, and discovery waiting to unfold.
