Review: fml – Shaun David Hutchinson

Review: fml – Shaun Davi..

A friend suggested this one after learning of my love for Parallel life books. When I saw it was up on Edelweiss I requested it pretty late and on a whim and was happy to be approved so quickly. Sadly though that is where most of my happiness ended because this book turned out to just be okay. I did enjoy the parallel life part and it was fun to read a parallel story from a guy’s POV, but the rest of it was just okay. FML is the story of Simon. Simon has been in love with Cassandra Castillo […]

Review: The Program – Suzanne Young

Review: The Program – Su..

Is there a word stronger than love? Infatuation? Obsessed? Crazy over the top awesome? Basically all those words sum up my feelings on The Program. It has everything I look for in a great book. Amazingly compelling characters, a strong, well thought out story, excellent writing, and that great concept of fate and what it means. It reminded me of Delirium from the get go(a little less dystopian in my opinion) and it has quickly become one of my favorite books. And what gets me is that I was in no rush to read it. Sure I had it on […]

Review: The Book of Broken Hearts – Sarah Ockler

Review: The Book of Broken Hea..

Straight up I’m a major, major, major Sarah Ockler fan. She is one of my auto-buy authors so I truly don’t think she could do any wrong in my eyes. But I will admit when I started The Book of Broken Hearts I was nervous. I was really nervous because I wasn’t sure I liked Jude or how the story jumped in and sort of seemed rushed. But then I kept reading and reading and reading. And I can happily report that I really loved the story. It was definitely a different kind of Ockler read I thought, but it […]

Second Chance Sunday – Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler

Second Chance Sunday – B..

Today’s Second Chance Sunday is brought to you by the wonderful Sarah Ockler and her awesome book, in a slew of many, Bittersweet. I swear this is the book  that started my love affair with cupcakes so I’m warning you all ahead of time. But seriously this book was fantastic and I thought it should be recognized since Sarah’s next fantastic book The Book of Broken Hearts comes out next week(review on the blog on Wednesday). A sunshine yellow lemon cupcake with a coconut infused marshmallow frosting.  Filled with a raspberry and blueberry jam and decorated with marzipan figure skates […]

Second Chance Sunday – If I Lie by Corrine Jackson

Second Chance Sunday – I..

I’ve been on a run of really good books lately so I had high hopes for this debut novel but I was really worried based on the hype. I can proudly say this book lived up to my hopes. Simply put I loved it!!! If I Lie was full of emotion and truth that I couldn’t put it down. I felt like I was a part of the community that Quinn was living in and my heart shattered for her. Basically the book is about Quinn, a 17 year old girl, living in a small military town in North Carolina. […]
