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.

Until my next post,

College Update and Why I Put Down the Harry Potter books

I wanted to update you guys on my life for the next couple of months.

I am currently taking 18 credits (6 classes) in college and I need most of my time for my homework. I may be taking 5 online classes, but it is still a lot of work.

I am also working a lot. When I’m not in school, I am most likely at work.

I had to put down the Harry Potter series. I really want to read this series, however, too much is in the way. I want to marathon this series when I’m not stressed out and have 10 other things going on. This is a series that I want to be able to delve into and not have a care in the world…something I cannot do right now. Hopefully, when school lets out this summer, I will be able to marathon this series.

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.

Until my next post,
