waiting wednesday

The last thing sixteen-year-old Jamie Watson–writer and great-great-grandson of the John Watson–wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s enigmatic, fiercely independent great-great-granddaughter, who’s inherited not just his genius but also his vices, volatile temperament, and expertly hidden vulnerability. Charlotte has been the object of his fascination for as long as he can remember–but from the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else.

Then a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Holmes stories, and Jamie and Charlotte become the prime suspects. Convinced they’re being framed, they must race against the police to conduct their own investigation. As danger mounts, it becomes clear that nowhere is safe and the only people they can trust are each other.

Equal parts tender, thrilling, and hilarious, A Study in Charlotte is the first in a trilogy brimming with wit and edge-of-the-seat suspense.

Book review : Growing up By Arianna Godoy *spoilers*

Growing Up (My Wattpad Love, #2)Growing Up by Ariana Godoy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

July 7-7

Summary - I want to grow up" Did you say it when you were a kid? I know I did. Have you regretted growing up at some point in your life? Have you wished you could be a careless child once again? I know you have. Everyone has.

The more you grow the bigger the challenges, the obstacles, the pain. Life gets serious. You get serious. You forget to smile at the morning sun shining down your face. You are too absorved by your problems to notice the beautiful world surrounding you.

And when life gets hard, you wish more than anything to turn back in time and be that small child who did not know anything when he said "I want to grow up"

Review - I loved the squeal to my wattpad love it was cute but still had wow moments so Evan and her are dating and it's all good and dandy when it comes to Jane I hate this Bit*ch pretty sure she's a sex addict . But I loved the cute moments when they would all just hang out and watch movies oh and Jason said he was into laura the scene with the banana ahahah so funny . And then there is Shane they were avoiding each other for awhile and when Evan finds out he's in love with her he tries to get Jules to stop hanging out with him shut up Evan I like you but shut up you don't tell people who they can or can't hang out with even though Shane does like Jules. Shane ends up kissing her when him and jordan prank everyone and she kisses back and she tells Evan and he's pissed I mean I would be to but he forgives her but when it comes to Jules birthday it ends bad when Jules finds out Evan lost his virginity to Jane I really hated her at this point and they break up and around christmas time Evan's sister comes to Jules to tell her she might be pregnant oh my god and then Evan is at the house and she does love him but then Evan and shane get in a fight but I loved the story .

Book review : my wattpad love *Spoilers*

My Wattpad Love (My Wattpad Love #1)My Wattpad Love by Ariana Godoy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

July 6-7
Julie has always been the shy type. Her world changes when she finds wattpad, a very popular ebook community. She becomes addicted to it and even starts posting her own stories. But are friends, fans and votes all she will get from this site? Or is it possible to find love as well

Review - I loved this story it was so cute Jules is obsessed with wattpad if you don't know what wattpad is it's this online site where people write stories it's a fun site . But when she gets a mean comment she writes back and it's a guy they write back and forth and actually start to become friends but Jules wants to know more about Evan they finally talk on the phone and then video chat which was so cute he calls her mrs. strawberry and ends up giving her a strawberry necklace and then there is shane who I didn't like to start but I ended up liking . I also loved her friends Jason and Laura I didn't like how Evan would treat her in some parts like in one part he wants her to stay away and then he would push her away they would kiss and maybe it's cause of his past but it did end up very cute and he opened up allot so I highly recommend it .
Favorite Quote-
Whatever , but the next time you appear on my window in the middle of the night and ask me for condoms . I will murder you and feed you to the dog ,

Book review : Until the end by Abbi Glines *Spoilers*

Until the End (Sea Breeze, #9)Until the End by Abbi Glines
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

June 30-July 1

he backstory that fans have been clamoring for—how Rock and Trisha fell in love—is the final installment in the Sea Breeze series from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines. And don’t miss the sizzling Epilogue, where Abbi wraps up all the Sea Breeze couples’ stories!

Trisha Corbin always knew how to hide a bruise. With her momma’s boyfriends unable to keep their hands off of her, she had no choice. And as long as it meant the guys wouldn’t go near her little brother, Krit, it was worth it. But her days of dreaming that Prince Charming would ever come rescue her are far, far in the past.

Rock Taylor always had a plan. Through football, he would rise above the life he was born into. A full ride to play for a major college team was within his reach—assuming he didn’t let anything get in his way. But scoring a date with the hottest girl in Sea Breeze was proving harder than expected. Trisha Corbin was every man’s walking fantasy, and she wouldn’t even glance his way.

When Rock finally does get Trisha in his truck, it isn’t for a date. It’s because he picks her up on the side of the road, beaten and bruised and walking to the local hospital. Before Rock knows it, football is no longer his life. Trisha Corbin is. And he’ll do anything to save her. And keep her.

In addition to Rock and Trisha’s love story, this special novel contains the wrap-up stories of all your favorite Sea Breeze couples: Sadie and Jax, Marcus and Low, Cage and Eva, Preston and Amanda, Jess and Jason, Krit and Blythe, and Dewayne and Sienna.

Review - This was such a great wrap-up to the series so it starts out with Rock and Trisha and it goes back to when they were in high school it was interesting to see all the guys in high school like preston oh god love him and Marcus and Dewayne they are like a family and I love that so it talks about Rock and trisha is the present and the past the present with there kids and the past when they met and Rock had to mostly beg trisha to go out with him she didn't want to deal with him cause she's had a terrible home life . I loved how Rock took care of her he had football on the line but he loved Trisha so much and cared for her and that's the kind of love you really want . But Trisha didn't know how to react he was always with a girl but when they hooked up for the first time it was out of love and he wanted her to be safe she was getting beaten for so long which was terrible and Rock protected her and in the end everything worked out . And then we got to see everyone's story end also it started with Sadie and Jax . They break up for a stupid reason Sadie was going to tell Jax she was pregnant but Jax dumped her cause he thought she kissed his drummer who was high at the time but she didn't and oh my god I loved Jessica in this she was standing up for her daughter and helping her through this Jax came back and she forgave him cause they were in love and then they had rough sex ;) . Marcus and willow's story was interesting so Low is pregnant again with a girl so sweet Eli is three now oh and Tawney her evil sister left and Marcus's parents are back together I loved the ending to there story . When Amanda finds a texts on Prestons phone from a girl she is freaking out and Marcus tries to murder Preston but it turns out it was a set up they get married but before they have wedding sex I wouldn't be surprised . Jess and Jason jess is having some problems she pregnant and she doesn't feel like she belongs she is always Jumping Jason to try to prove her love for him but they love each other and there engaged and happy there ending was so cute . Blythe and Krit's story was funny and cute so Blythe published her book and she's making allot of money now and Krit's nervous that if he proposes she will think it's cause of the money oh and Green hooked up with Matty's cousin yeah not good . And Green really likes this girl's hair LOL but when Blythe finds the ring she isn't positive it wasn't for her so she tells him and then she says yes aww so cute . Dewayne and Sienna's story had me in tears when we find out she's pregnant I was sobbing out of joy especially when Micah asked Dewayne if he could call him Dad and he cried and then I was crying loved it . Cage and Eva's ending was cute with Bliss's third birthday she is so like Cage it's funny . I like the ending to everyone's story when it ends 10 years later I was crying cause it couldn't of had a better ending I loved this series it was allot of fun and I loved all these characters .

Quotes-
Just like magic, each one of us had had that someone special walk into our lives and love us enough to fight for us. Life is funny that way. Fate happens, and it’s better than what you had imagined in the first place.”


I feel sorry for this town when the York and Drake boys all had cars.


The the day she gets married . .... wait, no . That shit ain't happening . No getting married . until she was , like maybe forty , or I was dead .

In a few months our lives would all change . We didn't know what the future held , but we had each other . this was my family . The one I leaned on since I was a kid . I could have taken a much different road in life , growing up the way I did , but having these three guys who gave a shit out me changed that . Somehow we had stayed out of real trouble . Marcus had always been there to remind us to keep it clean and stay out of Jail . I was going to miss times like this . But had Trisha and my future would always have her in it . That made the future exciting instead of terrifying . Since the moment she sat at the lunch table , laughing with the three people in the world who I considered family , I had known she was it . She was my future

We need to figure it out before your brother kills your groom ,

Preston , back the hell up ! Marcus , stop and ask him first before you commit a murder .

Book review : Hold on tight by Abbi Glines * Spoilers*

Hold on Tight (Sea Breeze, #8)Hold on Tight by Abbi Glines
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

June 28-30

Six years ago, Dewayne Falco's life changed. He lost someone he never expected to lose. Resigned to punish himself for something he felt he could have prevented, he goes through life without getting too close to anyone.

What he didn't expect was for the girl across the street to move back home and remind him of what they both lost: Dewayne's younger brother Dustin. However, when a miniature version of Dustin opens the door to greet him, Dewayne realizes he might not have lost everything after all.

Sienna Roy loved Dustin Falco most of her life. He was the boy next door, the high school basketball star and her best friend. But when his life was cut short, she realized he left a part of himself behind.

Now, she's back in Sea Breeze, thankful to have a home for her and Dustin's son, but not sure if she can ever forgive the people across the street who abandoned her when she needed them the most — The Falcos.

Betrayal, lies, and forbidden attraction might end Dewayne and Sienna's story before it's even begun.

Review - Now these books keep getting better I was really excited to get into Dewayne's story this involves Sienna who got pregnant with his younger brother's baby and he's also dead and her parents shipped her off I didn't like her parents for that reason alone but now Sienna is back and she isn't excited to see Dewayne one she sent letters a long time ago with pictures from her son's life Micah is adorable he's very protective of his mother and he's only five when Dewayne see's sienna again he's shocked and startled and she isn't very happy to see him cause she thought he knew but when she blurts it out he is more shocked and doesn't know what to say but he wants to get to know Micah he introduces him to his parents / grandparents but only the dad knows so far cause Dewayne told him I loved the flashbacks from high school one thing Dustin was a dick totally different from Dewayne . Dustin got very drunk one night after having sex with a girl he had pregnant and Dewayne was knocking some sense into him and he drove drunk and that's what got him killed . Sienna has liked Dewayne since she was fourteen and he helped her in high school Dewayne liked Sienna also but she thinks he can't be the guy for him but when they kiss it kind of changes things and then they have phone sex wow *fans self * I was so happy that the grandparents got to be apart of Micah's life they didn't get those letters the stupid mother took them ugh I hate her when Dewayne and Sienna finally get together I was so happy and eek they get engaged aww I loved this story .

Quotes-
You’re one of the best men I know. You wear your tats and piercings and those damn leather bracelets that only you could get away with. But inside you are one big teddy bear. When someone you love needs you, there is nothing you won’t do for them. When I needed you, you were always there. I’ve never questioned your heart. It’s made of fucking gold, and we all know it. We laugh at your crude jokes and snide comments because we know they mean nothing. It’s part of your shield. Underneath, I don’t know many men that compare. You’re one of the best, Dewayne. One of the best.”

I couldn't have written a more perfect ending to the story of my life . Because even with all those bad time and moments when I thought things couldn't get worse , the good time and the moments of joy and the love was all so much more . they made it worth it . The journey may not be easy , but when you find the one to take it with , then you can do anything .
