Book Review: “Famous In Love” by Rebecca Serle 

Hey everyone!

I had recently bought this book from Books-A-Million. I thought it was going to be a fun little read…and it was.

Here is the synopsis from GoodReads:

When Paige Townsen gets plucked from high school obscurity to star in the movie adaptation of a blockbuster book series, her life changes practically overnight. Within a month, Paige has traded the quiet streets of her hometown for a bustling film set on the shores of Maui, and she is spending quality time with her costar Rainer Devon, one of People‘s Sexiest Men Alive. But when troubled star Jordan Wilder lands the role of the other point in the movie’s famous love triangle, Paige’s crazy new life begins to resemble her character’s. In this exciting tale of romance and drama, both on-and offscreen, Paige must adjust to a crazy new life without the daily support of her friends and family, while figuring out who she is–and who she wants–as the whole world watches.

I absolutely enjoyed reading this book! I loved every word of it! I loved the characters of Paige, Rainer, and Jordan. I don’t know who I love Paige with more…..Rainer or Jordan. The ending surprised me! I so cannot wait to read the next book!

Until my next post,

Book Review: “Not That Kind of Girl” by Siobhan Vivian

Hi everyone!

I was iffy about reading this book. I bought this book because I absolutely love Siobhan Vivian and her writing style. The overview seemed a little strange to be, but I read it and I loved it!

Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:

Slut or saint? Good friend or bad friend? In control or completely out of it? Life is about making choices, and Natalie Sterling prides herself on always making the right ones. She’s avoided the jerky guys populating her prep school, always topped honor roll, and is poised to become the first female student council president in years. If only other girls were as sensible and strong. Like the pack of freshmen yearning to be football players’ playthings. Or her best friend, whose crappy judgment nearly ruined her life. But being sensible and strong isn’t easy. Not when Natalie nearly gets expelled anyway. Not when her advice hurts more than it helps. Not when a boy she once dismissed becomes the boy she can’t stop thinking about. The line between good and bad has gone fuzzy, and crossing it could end in disaster . . . or become the best choice she’ll ever make.

I absolutely loved this book. I couldn’t put it down once I started it – it was so addicting. I didn’t really like Natalie’s character much; however, the plot made up for that. I would’ve really loved to see more of Connor….I feel like his character was too underrated.

Book Review: “Dirty Billionaire” by Meghan March

Hi everyone!

I got this ebook free off of iBooks.

Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:

I’ve got a big dick and an even bigger bank account. That’s pretty much where my bio ends. Honestly, I don’t need to say anything else. I’ve just sold 99% of women on going home with me. Do I sound like an asshole to you? That’s because I am. And guess what? It works for me just fine. Or at least it did. Until I met her. Books talk about sparks flying. Fuck that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm. Only one problem. She didn’t leave her name or number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest fucking night of my life. Now I’ve had a taste of unicorn pussy—the sweetest, rarest of all pussy—and I need it again. So what’s an asshole to do? I took this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral. And when I find her? I’m keeping her.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a really great read.

This book is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.

Book Review: “Because of Him” by Jessica Roe

Hey everybody!

So, I got this ebook free off of iBooks.

Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:

Blair Ackerman is a girl with crazy hair and a bad attitude. She’s a girl who doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her. She’s a girl with only a duffel bag and a car named Nancy to her name, and that’s okay by her. She’s tough because she has to be. Nobody gets inside her head, nobody gets inside her heart. Silver is everything she’s never wanted. He’s a good guy, a smart guy, a guy who’s never met a girl like her before. He’s the kind of guy who loves history, who laughs at his own jokes, who kisses like a sinful dream. He’s the kind of guy who might just break down her walls and get inside her heart and make her feel. Too bad he’s forbidden. Because when Blair’s mom dies and she’s sent to live with the father she’s never met and a family that doesn’t want her, Blair and Silver cross paths in ways they never could have imagined, and they discover that even though they know they should, they can’t quite bring themselves to stay apart. Opposites really do attract. 

I actually really liked this book. Every single word kept me on my toes. It was a really wonderful read!

This book is not recommended for anyone under the age of 15.

Book Review: “Teacher’s Pet” by Avery Phillips

Hi guys!

So, I got this book free off of iBooks.

Life happens when you’re busy making other plans. When Lynora meets and falls in love with a new professor at her college, Simon Foster. There are a lot of lessons that need to be learned. But what happens when Lynora gets fired from her job as a teaching assistant to Professor Foster? Will attitudes arise? How will they both react?

When I first read the overview on iBooks, I was honestly intrigued. I thought it was going to be just this amazing coming-of-age novel and……it wasn’t. I didn’t live up to what I thought it was going to be.

Book Review: “Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later” by Francine Pascal *SPOILERS*

Hi everybody!

I finally got around to finishing this book and wow-wee was it an emotional roller coaster!

Ten years after Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield graduate Sweet Valley High, things take a turn for the worse. Elizabeth moves to New York, friends die, divorce is in the air, and Todd finds a leading lady…..but it’s not whom you may expect.
** spoiler alert ** IF YOU DID NOT READ THIS BOOK AND DO NOT WANT IT SPOILED, PLEASE DO NOT READ THE REST OF THIS REVIEW!! PLEASE SKIP TO THE BOTTOM!!!

I liked this book, but at the same time, I didn’t.

I love Elizabeth. I hate Jessica. I mean, really?!?! Elizabeth was dating Todd. She got sick and couldn’t go to a party with Todd and told Jessica to take her place since they were identical twins……and Jessica and Todd HATED each other. They wound up having an affair and going behind Elizabeth’s back. And Jessica thinks it’s OKAY to betray her TWIN SISTER like that?!?! And then Jessica wonders why Elizabeth hates her and blames both her and Todd for betraying her!! Multiple times throughout the book, Jessica lies to Todd about her whereabouts and who she is with. And the time she went out with Michael for a drink (she told Michael that Todd was just a friend) and she told Todd that she was stuck at a meeting. And then, she consciously chose Todd over Michael, after contemplating dumping Todd for him and saving her relationship with Elizabeth. She ruined her brother’s marriage. She found out that he was gay and cheating on his wife. She then promised not to tell his wife because he would do it and then she turns around and tells her. She blatantly broke her promise. I have never hated a character before. I’ve disliked characters, but I’ve never hated them. I hate Jessica Wakefield.

The ending was just strange. I mean, why would Elizabeth forgive her sister and be the Maid of Honor in her wedding with Todd?

The only thing I really liked was when Bruce told Elizabeth he was in love with her. Elizabeth finally got her happy ending.

YOU CAN READ FROM THIS POINT ON!!!

All in all, I liked this book.

Book Review: “Keeping My Best Friend” by Hazel Kelly 

Hi everyone!

This is the last book in the Fated series by Hazel Kelly.

As I mentioned in all my other reviews of this series, I bought this book off of iBooks.

After the wedding of Aiden’s sister, Lucy’s happiness is sky high. But she is craving something else…….Aiden’s love. Will she get it or will Aiden confess something else?

This was by far the best book in the series. I nearly cried the entire time while reading it. The ending was just so sweet. I couldn’t imagine any other way to end a series. 

Until my next post,
