Review * He’s So Fine by Jill Shalvis

September 30, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

What I Thought… • In the last book, It’s In His Kiss we meet Sam, Cole and Tanner, and Cole is the main guy here. He was the one that I was most excited about and I’m happy to report that I wasn’t disappointed. • Sam, Cole and Tanner’s friend Gil died in an accident a few years ago and Cole took it the hardest, and you find out why in He’s So Fine.

Review * Bloodlines Series #1-5 by Richelle Mead

Review * Bloodlines Series #1-5 by Richelle Mead

September 26, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

What I Thought… • I devoured the Vampire Academy books and was looking forward to reading the Bloodlines series. I absolutely loved the world that Mead created and was excited to see it continue. I was unprepared for just how much I would love the Bloodlines series though. • We first meet Sydney when Rose is hunting Dimitri and I was kind of meh about her, but as we get to know Sydney in Bloodlines I knew I was going to like these books better. I’m much more Sydney than Rose. Sydney is very strait laced and strongly believes in… Read more »

Review * Not in the Script by Amy Finnegan

Review * Not in the Script by Amy Finnegan

September 22, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

What I Thought… • Not in the Script is my kind of book. It’s cute with some humor and seriousness thrown in and the main characters are famous, an aspect I love reading about. Not in the Script is very character driven, not much else is going on besides the filming of the TV show. • Emma is a fairly well known actress who has been hounded by the paparazzi. As we all know they manipulate things and definitely caught some bad moments for Emma. Emma also has a history of picking guys who are all wrong for her and… Read more »

Sunday’s In Bed With… is hosted by Kate at Midnight Book Girl to share with everyone what you’re reading in bed! This morning I’m working and I’ll be listening to American Gods by Neil Gaiman while I’m doing it. This book is strange, but it’s my book club pick for September and even though we had book club last night I will be finishing this book. I’m enjoying this one more than Stardust, but I still find myself saying WTF a lot. This will probably be my last Neil Gaiman book. I know a lot of people love him, but… Read more »

Review * The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris

September 19, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★

What I Thought… • The Fine Art of Pretending is everything I love about romantic comedies. It’s cute and fun and a little bit frustrating! • Aly launches “Operation Sex Appeal” and you just know that this is not going to go well. Her first bright idea is for her best friend, Brandon, to pretend to be her boyfriend, all in hopes of getting this other guy Justin, whom she thinks she wants. Things are rolling along and Justin is showing interest, only now she’s not so sure she wants him after all. • I adored Aly. She’s a little… Read more »

Review * Croak by Gina Damico

September 15, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★★★

What I Thought… • Croak is one of those books that I’m kicking myself for not reading earlier. It was funny with a twist. There is a little something for everyone to enjoy. • Lex is getting in some serious trouble at school and at home, which is why her parents decide a summer with Uncle Mort might be just the trick to snap her out of this phase. When she arrives she finds out that she’s going to be a reaper rather than work on a farm. Lex isn’t exactly pleased to be “killing” people. It takes her some… Read more »
