Book Review: “Fangirl” by Rainbow Rowell

Hey guys!

It took a couple months, but I finally finished this book.

Overview from GoodReads:

Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life-and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere. Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to. Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone. For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

Oh. Em. Gee. My heart. My aching heart. This happy ending was just…..I have no words. I just loved it! I just loved the whole thing! This book showed what really happens in college and that makes me really happy.

Until my next post,

Stephanie

ARC Review: “Going Down” by Lulu Pratt and Simone Sowood

Hey Guys!

I received an ARC from the authors in exchange for an honest review.

Overview from GoodReads:

Some people have a bucket list, I have a fuck-it list. When a brochure arrives at my mansion, the woman on the cover goes straight to the top. But she’s only interested in selling me stuff. That’s fine, I’m no stranger to the chase and I always capture my prey. After one taste, my list goes out the window. She’s all I can think about. Until I find out she’s secretly working for my asshole brother. My brother thinks he can use her to take me down? As if. The only way I’m going down… is on her.

This was a very fascinating book. I’ve read work from Lulu Pratt and Simone Sowood before, so I knew there were going to be sex scenes. The amount of sex scenes were just right and I enjoyed every single ounce of this book.

ARC Review: “Carnal” by Simone Sowood

Hi guys!

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Overview from GoodReads:

I don’t know what made me go to him that night. Steel, the pierced drifter with the neck tattoo. Mostly I wanted to hurt my reputation. He could take my virginity and I’d go home, ruined. I never thought he’d say no.


I had read “Carny,” and enjoyed it, so when Simone Sowood sent out an email stating she was re-releasing it with a different title and semi-different content, I was excited. This book was a great read and I really enjoyed reading it.

ARC Review: “Making His Baby” by Lulu Pratt

Hi guys!

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review!

Overview from GoodReads:

We’re making this baby the old-fashioned way. With my billions, I’ll pay whatever it takes for her to have my child. And I’m going to have fun putting it in her. After the baby’s born, she can go back to her regular life. But the way she screams my name in bed makes me want more. For the first time in years I want an actual relationship. Until I realize there’s something she’s not telling me. A secret from the past. And her plan to ruin everything.

I liked this book. There weren’t as many sex scenes as I thought there was going to be, but that is a good thing as too many sex scenes are just a chore to read. I did wind up having to skip past some sex scenes, but that is okay. It was a good book, overall.

Until my next post,

Stephanie

August 2017 Book Wrap-Up

Hi everyone!

I read one book this month and that was “The Unexpected Everything” by Morgan Matson. It was for the Tome Topple Readathon that was hosted in the month.

I didn’t read as much as I would’ve liked, but I’m hoping to read more next month.

I read 21 hours this month. I didn’t hit my goal and I’m really disappointed in myself for it, but I’m hoping to surpass my goal next month.

Until my next post,

Stephanie
