Waiting Wednesday


Summary  -In this dazzling debut novel, a pregnant teen learns the meaning of friendship—from the boy who pretends to be her baby’s father.

When the entire high school finds out that Hannah Shepard is pregnant via her ex-best friend, she has a full-on meltdown in her backyard. The one witness (besides the rest of the world): Aaron Tyler, a transfer student and the only boy who doesn’t seem to want to get into Hannah’s pants. Confused and scared, Hannah needs someone to be on her side. Wishing to make up for his own past mistakes, Aaron does the unthinkable and offers to pretend to be the father of Hannah’s unborn baby. Even more unbelievable, Hannah hears herself saying “yes.”

Told in alternating perspectives between Hannah and Aaron, Trouble is the story of two teenagers helping each other to move forward in the wake of tragedy and devastating choices. As you read about their year of loss, regret, and hope, you’ll remember your first, real best friend—and how they were like a first love.

Book review- Daughter of smoke and bone by Lanie taylor


Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
April  8-  May  23

Summary  -Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands", she speaks many languages - not all of them human - and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.

When beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

Book review - Reasonable Doubt volume 1 by whitney gracia williams


Reasonable Doubt: Volume 1 (Reasonable Doubt, #1)Reasonable Doubt: Volume 1 by Whitney Gracia Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read  may  15-may 15
Summary  -My cock has an appetite.

A huge and very particular appetite: Blonde, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar... (Although, that's a story for another day.)

As a high profile lawyer, I don't have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online.

My rules are simple: One dinner. One night. No repeats.

This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less.

At least it was , until "Alyssa"...

She was supposed to be a 27 year old lawyer, a book hoarder, and completely unattractive. She was supposed to be someone I shared law advice with late at night, someone I could trust with details of my weekly escapades.

But then she came into my firm for an interview—a college-intern interview, and everything fucking changed..

Cricket Thompson's lifetime of overachieving has paid off: she's headed to Brown University in the fall, with a spot on the lacrosse team and a scholarship that covers almost everything. Who knew living in the dorm cost money? An Ivy League education seems to mean living at home for the next four years.

When Cricket is offered the chance to earn enough cash to afford a real college experience, she heads back to Nantucket for the summer. But the faraway island challenges Cricket in ways she hadn't anticipated. It's hard to focus on earning money for next year, when she finds her world opening up in entirely new ways-to art, to travel, and, most unexpectedly, to a future completely different from the one she has been working toward her whole life. A friendship blossoms with Ben, the gorgeous surfer and bartender who encourages Cricket to be free, even as she smarts at the pain of seeing Zack, her first love, falling for her worst enemy.

But one night, when Cricket finally lets herself break all her own rules, she realizes she may have ruined her carefully constructed future with one impulsive decision. Cricket must dig deep to fight for her future, discovering that success isn't just about reaching goals, but also about listening to what she's been trying to ignore-her own heart




 this  book  came out  yesterday  and I'm planing on getting it  for  my  birthday  i'm super  excited to find out what happens  in this one   i loved  the  first one   .

Book review - Losing it Cora Carmack


Losing It (Losing It, #1)Losing It by Cora Carmack
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

read from  May  4-  May  13

Summary  -Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, Bliss Edwards decides the best way to deal with the problem is to lose it as quickly and simply as possible - a one-night stand. But her plan turns out to be anything but simple when she freaks out and leaves a gorgeous guy alone and naked in her bed with an excuse that no one with half-a-brain would ever believe. And as if that weren't embarrassing enough, when she arrives for her first class of her last college semester, she recognizes her new theatre professor. She'd left him naked in her bed about 8 hours earlier.

Book review- Sea of monsters by Rick Riordan


The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #2)The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

april  23-  may  7

Summary -The heroic son of Poseidon makes an action-packed comeback in the second must-read installment of Rick Riordan's amazing young readers series. Starring Percy Jackson, a "half blood" whose mother is human and whose father is the God of the Sea, Riordan's series combines cliffhanger adventure and Greek mythology lessons that results in true page-turners that get better with each installment. In this episode, The Sea of Monsters, Percy sets out to retrieve the Golden Fleece before his summer camp is destroyed, surpassing the first book's drama and setting the stage for more thrills to come



This  Review  Contains  Spoilers   You  Are  Warned

Annabeth: Hubris means deadly pride, Percy. Thinking you can do things better than anyone else... Even the gods.

Review - on the night of a halloween party Jacqueline was almost raped she tried to get away but then a mystery boy (Lucas) shows up and beats the crap out of Buck what I didn't get is why Jacqueline didn't report it , It made me more angry she didn't but she was just traumatized so she went home and then there comes some rumors that she hooked up with Buck the guy that almost raped her which made her even more angry then Lucas stared showing up everywhere her class starbucks after being dumped by Kenedy who I hate I just do she sits next to Benji who I love Jacqueline and Lucas relationship is weird they flirt and he ask to draw her which is total romantic she is also being tutored by Landon now when I started this book I'm like Landon , Lucas who do I like more there the same person Landon is lucas first name he goes by Lucas and Lucas lost his mother his mother was raped and murdered and he was in the same room as her that is so traumatic for someone to go through . When Jacquline finally told erin I was so happy cause she thought that erin wouldn't believe her . And then something terrible happens Buck raped another girl I was so angry at this point and then Kennedy and some other frat assholes tried to get this girl to not tell I was like what the hell is your problem . and then one night before winter break when it was almost all and done she told people what happened her mom and then after telling Lucas that she looked up what happened to his mother and going to doctor Heller she left and Buck was there again and this time she fought and told and Lucas was there again I loved this book it was something I've never read before and I loved it I highly recommend it .

Favorite quotes -I want to see your tattoos you do huh ? page 137

You haven't done anything wrong , so you have nothing to be worried about . Probably he just wants to make sure Lucas-Landon - sideshow bob - whoever- the hell- he is didn't take advantage of you. Page 180

He released my wrists, and I wrapped my arms around his neck, feeling out hearts beat in sync as lips fallowed a meandering path from my ear down . Choosing to be with you isn't difficult decision , Jacqurline, he breathed , pulling back one final time to state into my eyes . It's easy . Incredibly easy. Page 310

Why I started reading and why I started book blogging

 When  I was  7  I just transferred  from  a  private  school to  a public   school .   I have a learning difference  in processing   which means  I process  things  different  to  my  brain   like  math .  When  learning to read I was scared   cause I'd  already  failed  so much in school  and the  school before  didn't believe in me  very  much  but when  I learned   i got the  reading bug  I went to the library   checked out a   book   and it changed  me forever. my  first  book I remember loving was   bridge  to  tarabirtha by  Katherne  Paterson    it  made me  cry  I read it over and over again.    A few years later I found writing    my  very  first blog post  was on  writing   it  was post on december 8, 2009  a  few days later I posted my  first book review   and I really liked  posting  book  reviews   so  I  stuck with it  and  it  became  my  passion  talking about books  writing reviews  and  reading   .
