Book review : Milk and Honey

Milk and HoneyMilk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

January 28-30

milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. It is about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose, deals with a different pain, heals a different heartache. milk and honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look

Review : I loved this collection of poetry some I didn't like but they were very beautiful poems .

If I Was Your GirlIf I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

January 16- 22

Amanda Hardy is the new girl in school in Lambertville, Tennessee. Like any other girl, all she wants is to make friends and fit in. But Amanda is keeping a secret. There’s a reason why she transferred schools for her senior year, and why she’s determined not to get too close to anyone.

And then she meets Grant Everett. Grant is unlike anyone she’s ever met—open, honest, kind—and Amanda can’t help but start to let him into her life. As they spend more time together, she finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself…including her past. But she’s terrified that once she tells Grant the truth, he won't be able to see past it.

Because the secret that Amanda’s been keeping? It’s that she used to be Andrew

Quotes
You can have anything,” she said, “once you admit you deserve it.”

I know it hurts. I know it hurts so bad you can barely breathe sometimes. I know because I’ve been there. Please don’t leave us. I promise life can be good, and we need you too much.”

Maybe secrets were part of life; maybe everyone had something they were lying to themselves about, or something they were hiding.
I looked up at the cross again and wondered if I was supposed to hear this particular sermon at this particular moment for a reason. I decided that the people who had said God didn’t love me, who said I didn’t have a place on Earth—they were wrong. God wanted me to live, and this was the only way I knew how to survive, so this was what God wanted. This was what I wanted. I had chosen to live, and it seemed like, finally, I was doing just that.”


“I wondered if joy could ever be felt by itself without being tainted with fear and confusion, or if some level of misery was a universal constant, like the speed of light.”

For as long as I could remember, I had been apologizing for existing, for trying to be who I was, to live the life I was meant to lead.”

Book Review : Shameless Gina L . Maxwell SPOILERS

Shameless (Playboys in Love, #1)Shameless by Gina L. Maxwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

January 14- 21

People say I'm shameless. They're right.

I like my sex dirty. It takes a hell of a lot to tilt my moral compass, and I always follow when it's pointing at something I want. That goes double when it points straight at the one girl in all of Chicago who's not dying for a piece of me.

She's all I can think about, and that's a problem, because she wants nothing to do with me. But I've seen her deepest secrets, her darkest fantasies, and they match mine to a fucking T.

I want her. Bad.

Now I need to show her how good it can feel...to be shameless.

Review : I loved this book , this book was funny and sexy Jane just wants her sink fixed and Jane's friend calls a guy to come over to "fix it " but the handyman is actually a stripper name Chance . But Jane doesn't know he's a stripper until he starts dancing for her . They make a deal Chance will fix her sink and dance for her . When he's in her bathroom he finds something on her laptop some really kinky porn Jane likes it rough . Chance dances for her and then they have some kinky sex and he leaves but he can't get Jane out of his head so he finds her at her work when he's with his friends which are very interesting characters
Austin a firefighter and Roman a lawyer very interesting combo for strippers. Chance fallows her to the bathroom for some fun so they agree to a no strings relationship . Lots of Kinky sex until Chance doesn't just want that when he sees men hitting on Jane he tells her he wants more while there in the bath and I love them together . Chance is worried Jane might want to change him . Jane goes to her cousins birthday and strippers are there Austin , Roman and Chance oh god and Jane leaves and when she gets home her and Chance get in a fight cause Jane asks him if he ever thought about stopping stripping and they break up . Chance is angry and he goes to Jane and they do there sexy time and get back together . Jane decides to get back at her friend and Chance says he's going to send her Ruthless who is roman I can't wait till the next book .
Favorite Quotes :
I've decided he's pretty much a unicorn with attitude , Aka the perfect lover

I wouldn't mind charming my way into her panties . Fell like sharing ? Do not kill your best friend. Do not kill your best friend

Damn, that means my thrusting game would be the reason a marrage gets called off . He shakes his head and whistles . That's pretty fucking heavy , Man but I guess what they is true . With great cock come great responsibility.

No , I was thinking more along the lines of another laywer. one who could schedule a meeting in a conference room one of these nights when she's working late all by herself . one who might start loosening the constraints of his suit during the meeting to get comfortable then might end up with it off all together . Her beautiful brown eyes grow wide with excitement . oh my god , she says Roman not roman I answer with a wink Ruthless

Book review Haikyu vol . 2

Haikyu!!, Vol. 2 (Haikyu!!, #2)Haikyu!!, Vol. 2 by Haruichi Furudate
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 Haikyu ! vol 2 November 30- January 9
Ever since he saw the legendary player known as the "Little Giant" compete at the national volleyball finals, Shoyo Hinata has been aiming to be the best volleyball player ever! He decides to join the team at the high school the Little Giant went to-and then surpass him. Who says you need to be tall to play volleyball when you can jump higher than anyone else?After proving themselves to be the ultimate combination in their practice match against Tsukishima, Kageyama and Hinata are finally allowed to join the club! Hinata’s true power—to perfectly time his spikes with his eyes closed—is awakened and nothing can seem to stop this crazy setter-spiker duo. Now their skills are about to put to the test at a practice match against one of Kageyama’s former teammates from middle school, Toru Oikawa.

Review : I think this was my favorite one so far . Hinata and Kageyama win against the others and they get to be on the team they have a practice game the members are former teammates of Kageyama and they end up winning and me meet Oikawa who is very cocky and was a former teammate of Kageyama this vol was very funny also I love this manga even though I'm not a fan of sports
