Because I Love You

Because I Love You

Disclaimer: I did receive this as a review copy from the publisher in a format of an e-galley! Though, all my thoughts are as honest as they can be. 

Because I Love You is beautiful, heartfelt, and there’s real emotion in it.

Because I Love You is about a teenage pregnancy. Andie fell in love with her best friend, made a mistake, and got pregnant. Though, when Carter, the best friend, and Heather the other best friend finds out, they abandon her. Then comes Neil, her ex-boyfriend who loves her. How cute is that? This is a story of true love and amazing happiness. While tragedies do occur in these types of situations, I still loved this book strongly. From happy crying to balling my eyes out, I loved it all the way.

I won’t ever forget a book like this, that has such strong characters, and it just puts a smile on my face. I never thought a book with this type of subject could be this good.

This topic, is very harsh, though it came from this book in a loving, good way. While teenage pregnancy is a very “bad” subject, this book could be used like a life-guide if you’re in the same situation as Andie.

The mom, she was so supportive, Jill was just amazing, and Neil is bae. ❤

5 stars for this beautiful book.

Chronicle of A Last Summer

Chronicle of A Last Summer

Let’s jump in right ahead and start with the obvious. I guess this just wasn’t for me. I hated the writing style. I was really excited when I received this in my mailbox because I was moving and I really badly wanted something summer-y. I was also excited because this was set in Cairo, Egypt! How uncommon is that? It’s an under-used place!

Then, It all came to me. After reading to page 106, I couldn’t take it anymore. The story absorbed me, the plot at least, though the writing made me want to stop every page. I couldn’t stand it. I do enjoy a good NA/Adult novel, though this obviously wasn’t for me. I was disappointed big time.

I just wish this writing style was different. I wish I liked this because it was so different. I know we didn’t get a name from the character, which kind of bothered me at times. I know we’re speaking of something that we don’t need a name. Though, I would’ve given it more stars if the character even received a name!

I Almost Forgot About You

I Almost Forgot About You

Well, let’s start with some basics. I Almost Forgot About You is a nice, light-hearted read for the summer. It was just a beautiful book, with some meaning behind it.
I Almost Forgot About You is about a doctor, Dr. Georgia Young, quits her job and takes a risk. A risk that she didn’t believe she could make, and thanks to this decision, she has to face her fears.
While I don’t want to spoil anything, the reason she quit her job was…moving…it was beautiful. That’s an element in a book you should always add. I loved how the Georgia was different. She’s not some white whiny chick, which is an over-used topic in pop culture, rather she is a beautiful woman who realizes she could do things differently.
This is an inspiring novel, and I’m thinking of reading more of this author’s books.
I’m pretty much speechless in ways to describe this masterpiece. I can’t wait for any more from this author. This wasn’t some crappy utter shit, rather the opposite. I also loved Wanda! Wanda and Georgia were awesome!

*I received a hardback cover from the publisher, big thanks!*

Iron Cast

Iron Cast

I received this book via NetGalley from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

 Anyway, this book is magical. Just beautiful with its carefully knitted words, entwined into the story. It’s so beautiful, that I could just not contain the excitement.

When I started this book, well, I wasn’t so very surprised or captivated by the words. Though, by page 42, I fell in love with this. This book just had a touch of everything for me, and other readers.

I’m not surprised this book has 4.40 stars on GoodReads it’s just so incredible of how the author made this book into something so very beautiful. I wish I had more words for this, though all I can say, is it’s beautiful.

If you weren’t aware of what this book is about it is about hemopaths.

On stage, hemopaths—whose “afflicted” blood gives them the ability to create illusions through art—captivate their audience.

As said in the description of this book. While I can’t give direct quotes, let’s just say these characters, I just loved. Corinne, Ada, Saint, Sebastian, Charlie… Good memories of yesterday!

13 Minutes

13 Minutes

Let’s just say 13 Minutes had such a great idea for such a great book. Though, it failed. It failed completely, and let me say, I couldn’t be more disappointed of how bad this book was.

Of course, this was a story started from a simple plot-line. Tasha died for 13 minutes. How simple is that? Very simple. I was really excited to start reading this book. Though, the first page, I already saw what it stored. A story, that in my mind, didn’t flow. Normally, I get this feeling, when I see a good plot. Like, I don’t know what’s going to happen, though I still have this thing in my mind, that just goes, I love this. That setting in my brain didn’t click for this book.

I’m not on a book hangover, or anything, just this was terrible. This had an idea, that it didn’t fulfill to its fullest. And, that’s the truth about 13 Minutes, and this book was probably one of the worst books I’ve read so far this year.

1 star for 13 Minutes. 

UPDATE ON LIFE!

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to make the announcement that I’m moving tomorrow to San Diego! This is a really big move for me, as I always lived in Chicago.

I’m very excited, and that means room tours, and so on!

Thanks,

Apoligies to publishers and authors

One Two Three

One Two Three

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher via NetGalley. 

I just finished this book. 2 minutes ago. I’m in tears, my makeup is ruined, and I’m crying like a little baby.

Yes, it was that good. God, I can’t believe it.

If you didn’t know what this book was about, it’s about a young teenaged girl, who wants to be a ballerina. Well, of course, she was in a school of arts for dancing. All until her father crashed a car with her in it. It was supposedly an accident. Her mother won’t stop drinking, and all other complications come to this plot. Natalya (the girl) can’t stop blaming herself for the car crash that killed her father. However, then, she meets a soccer player at her new school and falls in love with him.

THAT PLOT!

Can we just say, how amazed I am by this book? This book was beautiful. It gave my heart hope, hope for these characters and their lives. I fell in love with these characters that Novodazkij made, and you could just see the passion, each little flaw, each positive, everything, has been put into thought. And those are the kind of stories the world needs. This book is heartfelt and beautiful.
