Because of the vast amount of time I have on my hands right now, I’m currently in a reading slump. Is this the same for everyone else? I would have thought that because now I have so much time, I could enjoy more books or savour them more but no such luck. Quite disappointed actually although my cooking skills have definitely increased even though I do have a lack of ingredients due to panic buyers. So no review this week but we are sure to bring you one next week!! Stay safe people!!
Synopsis: Tessa Hart’s world feels very small. Confined to her bedroom with agoraphobia, her one escape is the online fandom for pop sensation Eric Thorn. When he tweets to his fans, it’s like his speaking directly to her…
Eric Thorn is frightened by his obsessive fans. They take their devotion way too far. It doesn’t help that his PR team keeps posting to encourage their fantasies.
When a fellow pop star is murdered at the hands of a fan, Eric knows he has to do something to shatter his online image fast—like take down one of his top Twitter followers. But Eric’s plan to troll @TessaHeartsEric unexpectedly evolves into an online relationship deeper than either could have imagined. And when the two arrange to meet IRL, what should have made for the world’s best episode of Catfish takes a deadly turn…
Told through tweets, direct messages, and police transcripts.
Review: Incroyable. This book (although I first read it over a year ago still) excites me and warms my heart which is exactly what we need at these times. Tessa Heart is struggling with her agoraphobia, working up the courage to leave her bedroom, her only solace is the music and life of Eric Thorn. Eric Thorn is a famous singer who hates how his fan base, as well as his managers, objectify him. They begin talking over twitter however Eric is under a different account, a hate account of Eric Thorn. This story is just so thrilling, there are so many twists and turns!!Continue reading “Book review: Follow me Back by A.V. Geiger”
Synopsis: In this moving story two teens fall in love with just one minor complication—they can’t get within five feet of each other without risking their lives.
Can you love someone you can never touch?
Stella Grant likes to be in control—even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions.
The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals.
Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment.
Review: So this is one of the times I actually read a popular book that inevitably became a film and although it was a good read, I just didn’t don’t find it all that exciting.Continue reading “Book Review: Five Feet Apart”
Synopsis: The Academy
Where things are not always as they seem…
My name is Kris Jameson and I’m a student at the Royal Academy. I’m at the top of all my classes, what they call a “model student.” There’s only one problem—the Academy is an all boys school and I’m a girl.
It started as a prank when I took my brother’s place. But things got complicated when I caught Broward, the school bully, in a compromising position. They got even worse when I was assigned my roommate—the handsome but enigmatic North who saved me several times from the bully’s attacks.
Now the consequences of my deception are coming back to haunt me. The penalty for fraud at this exclusive school is much worse than simple expulsion—I could lose a hand. Worse, so could my beloved brother.
Review: THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE READ SO FAR! The Academy by Emmaline Andrews mixes traditional with dystopian and my word this book was an adventure to read! I love a good girl-disguised-as-a-guy-due-to-misogyny book and this one is at the top of that list!Continue reading “Book Review: The Academy by Emmaline Andrews”
Synopsis: Alice Bell has one goal: to play for the elite junior hockey team the Chicago Falcons. But when she’s passed over at tryouts for being a girl, she’ll do anything to make her dream a reality…even disguising herself as her twin brother. With her amazing skills on the ice, Alice is sure she’ll fit in easily. That is, until she starts falling for one of her teammates…
Hayden Tremblay, star of the Falcons, can’t keep himself out of the penalty box. Constantly living in the shadow of his older brother, Hayden’s losing his passion for hockey. But when he gets shown up on the ice by the Falcons’ new rookie, Hayden’s determined to teach the kid a thing or two. Little does he guess that “Al’s” surprises on the ice are just the beginning…
Review: Cute. Amazing. Gripping. All these words I would use to describe this book. Just one of the boys uses a topic in books that I love, a girl affected by gender inequality by defying the rules and pretending to be a boy. For some reason, I just love this type of book and with just one of the boys, it has to be the best one I have ever read.Continue reading “Book Review: Just One of the Boys by Leah and Kate Rooper”
Rating: ★★★ and 1/3 or 3.5 stars
Synopsis: Compared to life on tour with her wannabe rock star mother, finishing high school in Rye is a snooze. At least Roxy has her best friend, Zoë, her dad, and her music. When her standoffish Civics class partner, Jag Monroe, breaks ranks and randomly friends her on Instagram, Roxy swiftly declines.
Jag is Roxy’s total opposite: stinking rich, conceited, and hot in that obvious kind of way. Roxy’s sure that his repeated friend requests must be a joke. Then Zoë does the unthinkable: snatches Roxy’s phone, accepts Jag’s latest friend request, and follows him back.
As the posts (and sparks) fly, Roxy begins to suspect that Jag may not be as shallow as everyone thinks, and that he may be into more than just her music.
Review: Ooh this book is so cute! The characters were very lovable and the addition of music for each chapter actually helped make the book more immersive if you will.Continue reading “Book Review: Friended by Kilby Blades”
Synopsis: How do you know who to trust when you can’t even trust yourself?
I look at my hands. One of them says FLORA BE BRAVE.
Flora has anterograde amnesia. She can’t remember anything day-to-day: the joke her friend made, the instructions her parents gave her, how old she is.
Then she kisses someone she shouldn’t, and the next day she remembers it. It’s the first time she’s remembered anything since she was ten.
But the boy is gone. She thinks he’s moved to the Arctic.
Will following him be the key to unlocking her memory? Who can she trust?
Review: I though would really love this book, the blurb was amazing and it had so much potential but… I just really didn’t like this.Continue reading “Book Review: The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr”

Song that reminds me of this book: Perfect Strangers by Jonas Blue ft. JP Cooper
Synopsis: Bachelor: A desirable potential boyfriend. AKA not Cole Kingston.
Seventeen-year-old Madison (Madi) Matthews wants nothing to do with the dating competition her school is holding to raise money for charity. She’s never been interested in chasing a guy before and she certainly isn’t interested in competing for one in front of the whole school.
But, when Madi is voted as one of the ten “lucky” contestants, she’s given no choice but to vie for the heart of Lincoln High’s most eligible bachelor. The problem is, they’ve chosen the wrong guy.
Cole Kingston might be good looking, great with a football and practically the king of Lincoln High, but he’s also cocky, arrogant, a serial flirt and Madi’s sworn enemy.
Will she be able to resist him though when the competition heats up and he turns his charms on her?
Review: Oooh this book was great! It is a YA contemporary romance that I actually enjoyed which is pretty unusual but the whole story was interesting enough to keep me hooked as well as build up tension.Continue reading “Book Review: The Wrong Bachelor by Alexandra Moody”
So as you can tell by my recent lack of uploads, my life is very quite demanding at this point so I won’t be able to upload as much as I would like to. I will still try to upload at least once a week though!
