April Landau thinks she has everything she’s ever wanted. Her high school sweetheart, a house she can’t afford, her bipolar tabby cat, and she’s all set to begin her Junior year of college. Just when she least expects it, her life gets thrown for a loop. When things between her and her long time boyfriend unravel, she becomes stuck in a downward spiral of emotion. Finally, opening her eyes to the fact that she may have given up more than she ever could have imagined in this relationship. She finds herself struggling to keep her head above water. 

Enter April’s next door neighbor— Jared Hoffman. He’s her complete opposite. A high school drop out who was forced to take over his parent’s business after their untimely death. It’s no surprise this tragedy affected him greatly, causing him to recede almost completely from society. 

But he has one secret. A secret he’s been carrying around for years. 
What happens when their worlds collide? Can an old friendship be the one thing that brings these two back to life? 

Thanks to Xpresso Tours for providing me with a copy.
So where do i begin....... i mean from the beginning i hated April. It was like reading about a whiny teenager ( this is new adult?) i don't know maybe the voice was off. Starts off with April having problems with her boyfriend hunter (she's in a destructive relationship but of course she "loves" him)
They're in college but it felt like high school to me and I've read some fan fiction that made me think this was fan fiction.

I was getting frustrated but i wanted to stick with it so i kept reading on but April's voice irked me to no end, she sounded like a whiny teenager and it was the way the author wrote some phrases, it felt like she was always screaming at me ( i mean exclamation points all over the place)
I realize this sounds like a bad mean review but i don't intend it that way, i'm just frustrated still. i can tell you this would have been cute as young adult and  a little bit more tweaking and editing.

I wanted to read a book but i felt like i read bad fan fiction( and I've read some that rivals actual books) and yes i did flounce but i'm not sorry. I Do know i will go back and read again because this has the potential.

2 stars for me and 4 hearts for the cover.

Review: P.S. I Like You

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay Contemporary makes me want to run away but there is a select few books i really liked and this one right here i think might be number one which is crazy okay.

I LOVE THIS BOOK AND THE CHARACTERS. I LOVE THE WHOLE CRAZY FAMILY

I FUCKING LOVE THE LYRICS AND LETTERS AND THE FUNNY BANTER.

I'm obsessed with writing poetry and songs and omg Kasie made Lily Abbot seem like a professional writer. The letter writing made me nostalgic for the old times.

I WANT TO SNUGGLE CADE NEXT TO MY HEART AND NEVER LET HIM GO.

I'M ATTRACTED TO HIM AND HIS WORDS AND VULNERABILITY.

You guys when it was that time in the story for them to do confessions and be cutesy, they damn delivered and i freaked out so hard at how fucking perfect and cute it was.

When Cade recited his letter to lily in the darkened classroom i couldn't handle myself, i was blushing and giggling and just a hot mess. when he said he knew it was her since thanksgiving i fell over…

Fantasy / Adult


In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.

Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.

Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s pas…

Review: A Crown of Wishes

A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

YOU BEAUTIFUL BOOK FULL OF MAGIC AND WONDER AND WORDS THAT MAKE YOU DANCE AND FEEL SO LIGHT AND HEAVY.

Disclaimer: Received a copy in exchange for honest opinion *and yeah because i adored the first book*

Words that feel skin deep and soul fulfilling, words that plucks tears from eyes and pull smiles from lips.

I felt so comfortable being pulled back into this world, the Night Bazaar and these characters. My favorite thing about this book was that we got to see Maya again.

Now i see what Maya saw in young Guari, who has grown and lived while dying and full of scars that paint a map of her story.

So THANK YOU to ST.Martins Press for allowing me to read early copy.
