Book review- Seconds by bryan lee o'mally

SecondsSeconds by Bryan Lee O'Malley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summarry - Katie’s got it pretty good. She’s a talented young chef, she runs a successful restaurant, and she has big plans to open an even better one. Then, all at once, progress on the new location bogs down, her charming ex-boyfriend pops up, her fling with another chef goes sour, and her best waitress gets badly hurt. And just like that, Katie’s life goes from pretty good to not so much. What she needs is a second chance. Everybody deserves one, after all—but they don’t come easy. Luckily for Katie, a mysterious girl appears in the middle of the night with simple instructions for a do-it-yourself do-over:

1. Write your mistake
2. Ingest one mushroom
3. Go to sleep
4. Wake anew
And just like that, all the bad stuff never happened, and Katie is given another chance to get things right. She’s also got a dresser drawer full of magical mushrooms—and an irresistible urge to make her life not just good, but perfect. Too bad it’s against the rules. But Katie doesn’t care about the rules—and she’s about to discover the unintended consequences of the best intentions.

waiting wednesday

summary- Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul

I love Jennifer L . Armentrout I will read anything she writes

favorite authors of 2014

Colleen  hoover  I've only read slammed and  point of  retreat but  I love her  writing and  her characters  .

Tammara  webber  I loved  easy so  much it was  a beautifully  written story   about  a  tragic  topic  .

Cora  carmack     I loved  Losing it  I need to read the rest  of the series  but I loved the first one

Wishlist wednesday

Madeleine Kuderick’s gripping debut is a darkly beautiful and lyrical novel in verse, perfect for fans of Sonya Sones and Laurie Halse Anderson. Kiss of Broken Glass pulses with emotion and lingers long after the last page.

In the next seventy-two hours, Kenna may lose everything—her friends, her freedom, and maybe even herself. One kiss of the blade was all it took to get her sent to the psych ward for seventy-two hours. There she will face her addiction to cutting, though the outcome is far from certain.

When fifteen-year-old Kenna is found cutting herself in the school bathroom, she is sent to a facility for mandatory psychiatric watch. There, Kenna meets other kids like her—her roommate, Donya, who’s there for her fifth time; the birdlike Skylar; and Jag, a boy cute enough to make her forget her problems . . . for a moment

Book review - isla and the happily ever after by Stephanie Perkins

Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss, #3)Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

read from August 20- September 8

Summary -Love ignites in the City That Never Sleeps, but can it last?

Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

Featuring cameos from fan-favorites Anna, Étienne, Lola, and Cricket, this sweet and sexy story of true love—set against the stunning backdrops of New York City, Paris, and Barcelona—is a swoonworthy conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.

This  review  contains  Spoilers  !

Review- isla is at kismet when she sees her crush from school Josh she's kind of high on meds from getting her wisdom teeth out and Josh and isla talk and he draws her and then she wants to see him again but he wasn't at kismet they go back to school and she sees josh again they start talking and hanging out and then josh says to isla she likes him and then they start dating it's so cute there date and then they decide to go to Barcelona Josh says it would be fine they go they have a great time they go to the hotel and have sex it was beautiful and then it goes bad they get caught josh gets expelled isla is mad a kurt and hattie cause Kurt told hattie and nate overheard Josh heads back to NYC and Isla is in france she is applying to dartmath and Josh is planing on going to this cartoonist school then allot of things go bad it's hard for them to talk his father is up for reelection and around then isla gets a package it's his graphic novel and isla isn't a fan cause well his ex girlfriend is there allot but she's there at the end and she tells josh this and it isn't very nice and they g et in a stupid fight and isla picks at that josh doesn't really love her and Josh keeps calling and calling and when isla finally realizes josh does love her it's to late . Until when she gets back to school and she makes up with Hattie and gives her the treehouse and Hattie tells her that she mailed the signed book isla got josh and then josh calls her he's in france he wants isla to meet his friends . Anna st. clair lola cricket and even Meredith is there and then something big happens St.clair propses to Anna OH MY GOD it was so cute . Josh walks isla home and gives her the graphic novel again but it's different this time and she finishes it and she runs to him so cute they spend two weeks together . then it's june and there back at kismet and josh is finished with the book and they on the happily ever after I loved it isla is going to darthmath and there going to be together I loved there story and it was nice to see my other favorites also.

Favorite quotes - does this...does this mean you want to be my boyfriend?" My question sounds both immature and momentous. But Josh doesn't flinch.
"Yes," he says. "I want.”

“We're enveloped in pitch black. "Wait here," I whisper.
"Are you getting your ax?"
"Kinky. But, okay, I'll try it.”

“Several yards away – closer to the cathedral’s legendary carved doorways – Anna and St. Clair are standing on top of Point Zéro. It’s been hand-brushed clear of its dusting of snow. Point Zéro is the bronze marker, a star, which designates the official centre of France. There are at least two superstitions about it. One is that anyone who stands on the star will return to France. The other is that you can use it to make a wish.
“Wait for it,” Josh says.

Lola stands straighter, excited. “No!”

“Yes,” Cricket says.

I’m the last one in the dark, until – suddenly – it happens. St. Clair removes something from his pocket. And then he gets down on one knee.

Anna’s entire body lights with shock and joy and love. She nods a vigorous yes. St. Clair places the ring on her finger. He stands, she throws her arms around him, and they kiss. He spins her in a circle. They kiss again. Deep, hungry, long. And then he turns to us and waves – with the biggest smile I’ve ever seen – clearly aware that we’ve been standing here the whole time.”
