Review: Only For You (Unforgettable You #1) – Beverley Kendall

Review: Only For You (Unforgettable You #1) – Beverley Kendall

*I received a free ARC of Only For You from Season Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Only For You is a typical romance, with complications that don’t really have anything to do with the main characters. Olivia is a beautiful young woman, used to having boys chasing after her – all the boys apart from the one she wants. Zach has something against Olivia, but what, she has no idea, as they have never really spoken to each other. On the first day of college, Olivia is in French class, chatting with her best friend April when none other than Zach strolls into class. Avoidance really isn’t an option, as they both see each other at […]

Top Ten Tuesday #17 – Best so far this year

Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Books I’ve read so far this year This week on Top Ten Tuesday we are discussing the books that are the best we’ve read so far this year. I’m thinking we need to make up a new meme called top twenty or thirty so I can keep all the great books on my list 😉 Top Ten Tuesdays is a fun meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we share our excitement for books, and I really like how this meme makes me think about the books I read, why I read them, and who to recommend my favorite reads to. So, here we go : As usual, my list is in […]

Review: Ten Tiny Breaths (Ten Tiny Breaths #1) – K. A. Tucker

Review: Ten Tiny Breaths (Ten Tiny Breaths #1) – K. A. Tucker

Yeah, even the readers need to think about breathing while reading Ten Tiny Breaths, that’s for sure. Between forgetting to breathe in places because I just wanted Kacey to be OK, and not being able to breathe because I was ugly-crying so hard it was impossible I figure the title is one of the more apt titles I’ve seen in a long time! Ten Tiny Breaths start with Kayce and Olivia fleeing their aunt and uncle’s house with only one suitcase each, after their uncle had come into Olivia’s room during the night, acting inappropriately. Kacye swore she would take care of her sister, making sure she could finish high-school and live her dream by going to Princeton just like […]

Sidekick Saturday #9 – Villain among Villains

Sidekick Saturday #9 – Villain among Villains

Sidekick Saturday #9 – Villain among Villains Sidekick Saturday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jaclyn at JC’s Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn’t have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: • Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fits in this week’s type • Share a picture (if possible) and information about the character • Give the title and author of a book the character […]

Review: If You Could be Mine – Sara Farizan

*I received a free ARC of If You Could Be Mine from Algonquin Young Readers via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* If You Could be Mine is a very sweet story about two young Iranian women. They have known each other their whole lives, as their mothers were best friends as well. When they were six years old, Sahar realized she really loved Nasrin, and she even told her mother. Her mother quietly told her never to speak of that again, and that this is just not natural at all. When Sahar’s mother dies and she finds herself alone with her father, she spends a lot of time studying, because she wants to be able to go to […]

Review: Severed Stone (Souls of the Stones #0.5) – Kelly Walker

*I received a free ARC of Severed Stone (Souls of the Stones) from All Night Reads via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Severed Stone is the prequel story in the souls of the Stones series, and I frankly don’t know if it would have been better to first read one of the full-length novels in order to have a stronger feeling about this world and some of the characters who live there. As it is, I really didn’t connect with any of the characters, and the beginning felt very rushed. There were also a lot of the plot-points that were quite easy to guess at before they came to pass, so the foreshadowing was a little on the […]
